lleemer CSets the lnltentlary Contract.
The board of public lands aud build
ings met yesterday, says tho Lincoln
Journal, and decided to award tho pen
itentiary contract to Warden llccmcr.
liuckstaff llros, of this city presented
seven different propositions in their bid
and Mr. llccmcr presented one, which
the board accepted as the best. In
brief, Mr. IJecmer agrees to care for
convicts at 40 cents per capita, tho stato
to furnish him all penitentiary prop
erty and keep tho satno in repair, lie in
return to account for all money re
ceived and paid out, and to refund to
the state all moneys coming into his
hands, less $3,000. lie is to pay lilsown
bookkeeper out of tho $3,000.
This proposition is construed by somo
to mean that tho board will be in con
trol of tho penitentiary contract and
conduct it for the benelit of tho state,
Mr. Ueemcr retaining as his sharo a fair
salary. Those who havo investigated
the proposition And no fault with it.
If the contract is worth whut the ap
praisers say it is under Mr. Beemer b
bid, tho Btato will got tho benefit of all
profits. Mr. llccmcr is considered ono
of tho best managers whoever occupied
tho position of warden, and it is gen
erally believed that under his bid tho
state has a good show of getting every
cent that can possibly bo made off con
vict labor.

them averaging from 10 to 14 per cent.
Tho lato rains, whilo not injuring tho
crop, have retarded its development.
And in view of this fact tho company
has dectded to give an additional price
per ton to those contractors who will

was the lowest possible estimate. Tho
factory had about 4,000 acres contracted
at the beginning of the season. Sup
posing 500 acres in tho different coun
ties had failed, there still would bo
3,803 acres in good condition, and these
will certainly average moro than pen

but the chairman of that committee
kindly withdrew the programs from

dangerous fire districts in the city.
At almost tho same time nn nlarm

blaze proved to be trivial, but the con

Tho Subject DlncUBjcd by tho Medico
Legal Congres.
Nbw Yonic, Sept. 9. The third day's
session of tho Medico-Lcgnl congress
began by tho reading by Clark Bell of
a paper by Gustavo Bochm on "Tho
Brutality of Capital Punishment."
Tho author contended that tho death
penalty had no doterrant effect; that
it was a rclie of feudal barbarism, nnd
was merely an act of rovongo on tho
pi 1 ? ,no stttl0, Tm"o afternoon scs
sioiias'opencd with the reading of a
wpc by Clark Boll on "Hypnotism hi
the Coutts of Law."
Mr. Bell pointed out that It
appeared tho majority of medical men
in this country did not recognize hyp
notic traneo as an existing fact. The
lawyers and judges wcro on the same
grounds ns tho doctors. In the courts
of Europo tho contrary was tho fact
and men of the highest charnctor and
Erofcssional attainments devoted their
est efforts to its study and elucida
tion. As it wns with professional men,
so it is with tho jpeople.
Professor Carl Sextus of Chicago
wrote I o say that a natural criminal
could bo mado to do criminal acts
under hypnotic influence, but not a
person of real moral worth. Dr. W. L.
Howard of Baltimore said that hypno
tism was a reality. Ho gave several
instances of hypnotized persons in
Baltimore, including his own servant,
whom ho sent to a neighboring phj'sl
clan's laboratory to steal everything
tho doctor had. He restored tho fellow
whilo ho had tho articles still in his
possession. The doctor confessed that
it affected the man's brain somewhat,
but he always tookcaro, except on this
occasion, to get tho subject back into
a good mental stato before ho com
pletely restored him.
The doctor also hypnotized a bank
cashier nnd mnde him steal 845,000. Ho
performed an operation in tho John
Hopkins university with the patient
under hypnotic influence. Hypnotism
Was invaluable as a corrector of
morals. Dr. G rover of Massachusetts
told of a young woman in Boston who
had n tendency to tuberculosis being
cured by hypnotic influence.

Washington, Sept. 0. A tolegram
received at the treasury department
states that 81,000,000 in gold has been
withdrawn for oxport from tho sub
treasury at New York. Slight gains,
however, were mado at Chicago and
other points, aggregating 180,000, so
tho true amount of tho reserve at tho
close of business was 808,513,520. Tho

The treasury ofllcials maintain their

there is no doubt that they were some

The democrats of Nebraska, in con
vention assembled, congratulate tho
country upon tho sure signs of return
ing prosperity. In spite of the evil
predictions alike of protectionists and
silver inflationists, the country is stead
ily and surely gaiuing ground, thuB
justifying the wisdom of tho reversal
of the republican policies of protective
tariff taxes and coinage of a redundant
quantity of token-dollars. Tho fact
that tho wheels of industry, so long
silenced as a consequence of these poli
cies by a long and depressing panic,
have resumed their wonted motion and
that moro than 300,000 lnoorcrs are re
ceiving an increase of wages of 12 per
cent proves this assertion.
Wo send greeting and congratula
tions to Grover Cleveland nnd his cab
inet, not only for their wise and pru
dent course which has aided so much
in bringing about tho better financial
.condition, but alco for their firm and
fearless adherence throughout tho long
depression to sound principles of econ
omies', for their just conception of the
rights of tho whole people, and for
their unswerving fidelity in upholding
and protecting the honor and integrity
of tho nation against organized mob
Wo indorse the national democratic
platform of 1803 and the interpretation
placed thereon by tho president, and
we declnro ourselves unequivocally and
unreservedly for that metallic money
as the standard unit, the bullion and
mint value of which are approximately
the same, the purchasing power of
which, regardless ot government mint
age, is tho least fluctuating in all the
markets of tho civilized world. Wo
insist upon this policy ns especially
necessary for tho protection of the
farmers, laborers and property owning
debtors the most defenseless victims
of unstable money and fluctuating cur
rency. Free coinage of silver, 10 to 1, means
silver monometallism; it means poorer
money and Jess of it; it means less
wages for the laboring man and less
actual money for tho farmer and very
much less credit, us well as money for
the business man. It means bank
ruptcy for all, save tho mine owner.
We recognize in the issue and reissue
of our treasury notes a serious menace
to the stability of the national finances
and we favor the retirement of all
treasury notes at the earliest possible
moment with proper and safe guaran
tees for maintaining the necessary vol
ume of the currency which shall bo de
vised by a competent, non-partisan cur
rency commission.
The constitution of this state pro
vides that no religious test shall bo
made as a qualification for office. That
provision we accept both in the letter
and in the spirit and we condemn every
attempt by secret societies or other
wise to proscribe any portion of our
citizens on account of their religious
beliefs or adulations.
T. C. Marshall nominated T. J. Ma
honey for candidate for justice of tho
supremo court The nomination was
mado by acclamation and D. W. Camp
and J. H. Ames conducted the nominee
to the platform.
Mr. Mahoney was greeted with ap
plause when he stepped to the front of
the stage to make his speech of thanks.
He said that whether locally the con
test was crowned by victory or defeat
he thought that the duty of the con
vention had been done by holding up
before the people the principles of their
party. Whether there was one vote or
100,000 for tho candidate of a party if
it was true to principle it was right,
temporary success did not measure the
success of a party.
The nomination of candidates for re
gents of the State university were
made. The candidates were: W. Si
Ashby. Hildreth; J. F. Canyon, McCook;
John II. Ames, Lincoln: h. S. Green.
