(1. II. Rogers, printer.
All previous records for excessive
Tieat were broken and the result, so
unusual for Lincoln, caused a genuine
shock when made known. ' Thermom
eters located near the pavements dur
ing the afteruoon registered as high as
US degrees, llcsldcs being the hot
test day of the year, the temperature
. is the highest recorded during the flf
; teen years the weather bureau ns been
in operation in Lincoln. The tempera

' ord breaker for this hour of the day.
For thirty one days there have been
'';ly two days when the maximum
'Snpcraturo hns fallcu below 100 dc
;u ?s. This was on July 2 and .".
The strain of the hot weather began
to tell iu earnest July 21 on the popu
Jation of Lincoln. During the past
week there have been many who laid
the foundation of some of the tragedies
that have occurred to the break down
of nervous systems because of the ter
rific heat. Sunday it was brought home
with unwelcome force that the people
of Lincoln cannot bear the heat for an
interminable period. The men who
succumbed were working men but
rfcne with the exception of Mr. Dun
can were exposed to outdoor work dur
ing the week. Mr. Kortge has been
working Indoors and Mr. Segcrholm
lias been in bis store continually. A
peculiar coincidence Is that two of the
men were found lying tlenil on their
bedB, showing that they must have
met death In a state of complete ex
haustion. The tcr rible effects of the
heat were apparent on the bodies of
the first and last named men for
though they bad not been dead long,
tcy were changed almost beyond rec
ognition. It was bomcthing that puz
zled the physicians called to attend
and made the coroner Investigate very
closely to ascertain weather there were
any other reasons from which death
might have occurred.
George II. Rogers, a printer employ
ed on the Journal, was found dead in
the back yard of his home, having ex
pired sometime during the night as a
result of being overheated.

people along the river catch tho flsh
with pitchforks and haul them away.

tlovemor to Hbto I,Mt of llorroirer o(
Although Governor Savage has main
tained silence in regard to the terms
of ex-State Treasurer Hartley's parole,
It is said to be u fact that the gover
nor will in due time be furnished with
n complete list of the names of men
who may have secured state funds from
Hartley. This bare announcement Is
said to mean much. It is thought to
mean, that Hartley Is at work trying
to collect funds thai he may have had
out at the time ho became short in
his accounts and that a considerable
amount may be returned to the state.
It may also mean that persons who
may have had state funds In their
possession and who refuse to make
restitution may be prosecuted on tho
theory that they are equally llablo
to punishment under tho law. That
the governor Is to become possessed
of tho name of every man who had
any state money when the shortage
was discovered is said to be an assured
fact. This Is believed to bo ono of tho
terms of the parole. If this is carried
out It will also disclose the exact
amount of money, If any, retained by
Hartley, a point on which no word has
ever been spoken by Hartley.

The Post, as ti result of extensive in
quiries, bated upon the admiral's dis
"Admiral Schley proposes to ask an
Investigation at the hands of a naval
court of Inquiry and then to sue His
torian MaeClav for ll'-el. ills action
is the sequel to the developments dur
Inir the past week, when the entire
country has been stirred by the publi
cation of the unexampled abuse
poured out upon him In the third vol
ume of E. E. MneClay's history of
the United States navy. In which pub
lication Schley Is said to have run
away 'in rait lit flight,' and Is In addi
tion denounced us a coward, a cur
and a traitor."
The Schley court of inquiry will un
doubtedly Ihj one of tho most cele
brated in tho naval military history
of the country. The high rank of the
officers Involved in tho controversy
and tho Intense public feeling vvhloh
has been aroused till combine to give
to the investigation a dramatic in
terest. Nothing has occurred In
Washington for many years that will
compare with it. The appointment
of the court of inquiry is expected to
be made by Secretary Long, though
it would be In the power of the presi

J)ewey, Ramsey ami llonhmu will bo

With respect to tho matters to be in
quired into it is expected that Admiral
Schley condensed them In a letter writ
ten to Senator Hale, ehulrman of the
senate committee on naval nffairs In
Mm. This letter divided thu criticism
of himself into four heads, as follows:
First The alleged delay off Clenfne-
Second -Tho alleged slow progress
towanl Santiago from Clcnf ucgos. '
Third The retrograde movements
on the 211th and -27th of May. (This re
fers to the turning of the fleet from
Santiago toward Key West.)
Fourth The battle of Suutlugo and
tho destruction of Cerveru's fleet.

light fall of rain.
Tho past week has been a good oiuij
for haying und threshing, but a vcryj
unfavorable one for corn. Early plant

quite generally beginning to tusscl very
small and is in a critical Condition. In
southern counties It has been damaged
considerably and with rain soon would'
produce only a partial crop, in many
places less than half a crop. In north-,
ern counties the lata planted corn in In'
better condition, although It has snf-'
fcreil considerably from drouth. In
mapy western counties a largo percent-'
ago of th o.t1,s and spring wheat lias
Wen cut for hay, and in many south

crop will not lm threshed. Fruit of all
