Ileemer Got. the Penitentiary Contract.
The board of public lands and buildings -
ings met yesterday , says the Lincoln
Journal , and decided to award the penitentiary -
itentiary contract to Warden I3eemer.
Buekstaff Bros. of this city presented
seven different propositions in their bid
and Mr. L'eemer presented one , which
the board accepted as the best. In
brief , Mr. Beemer agrees to care for
convicts at 40 cents per capita , the state
to furnish him all penitentiary property -
erty and keep the same in repair , he in
return to account for all money received -
ceived and paid out , and to refund to
the state all moneys coming into his
hands , less x3,000. He is to pay hisown
bookkeeper out of the 83,000.
This proposition is construed by some
to mean that the board will be in control -
trol of the penitentiary contract and
conduct it for the benefit of the state ,
Mr. Beemer retainingashisshare a fair
salary. Those who have investigated
the proposition find no fault with it.
If the contract is worth what the appraisers -
praisers say it is under Mr. Beemer's
bid , the state will get the benefit of all
profits. Mr. Beemer is considered one
of the best managers who ever occupied
the position of warden , and it is generally -
erally believed that under his bid the
state has a good show of getting every
cent that can possibly be made off cone
A Reunion Note.
Hastings Dispatch : The crowd at
Camp Sherman was larger than ever
today. Very few people have estimated -
mated it at less than 50.000. The whole

this afternoon. There is only about
sixty rods of vacant space between the
camps and that space was literally
packed with people.

Attempted Suicide of a Nebraskan.
Buffalo N. Y. ) dispatch : R. T. Allen
of Omaha , Neb. , shot and badly
wounded himself on a New York Central -
tral train a few miles from Buffalo.
Allen was traveling with his wife.
They had been to New Jersey and were
returning to Nebraska. Leaving his
wife for a moment Allen went to the
toilet room at the rear of the car , and a
moment later the passengers were
startled by a pistol shot. Several men
rushed to the spot and found Allen
lying in a pool of blood , which oozed
from a bullet wound in his left side.
He was cared for as well as could been
on the cars , and when the train reached -
ed Buffalo was taken to the Emergency
hospital. The doctors found that the
bullet had just touched the apex of
the heart. The aim was well directed ,
and had not the bullet struck some
hard substance in his clothing and
glanced off he would have been killed.
It is thought he will recover. Later-
While in the hospital Allen succeeded
in getting hold of a bottle of carbolic
acid , swallowing a large dose , with
fatal effects. His last words were :

The Beet Sugar Crop.
Correspondence Omaha Bee : TILL
Oxnard Beet Sugar company of Grand
Island will this year , beyond any question -
tion of doubt , make the largest run in
the history of the beet sugar industry
WY. Ii. Baird has been at work analyzing -
alyzing beets He stated that the beets
for their present condition as to maturity -
ity are showing up splendidly , most of
them averaging from 10 to 14 per cent.
The late rains , while not injuring the
crop , have retarded its development.
And in view of this fact the company
has decided to give an additional price
per ton to thos6 contractors who will
make later deliveries. For November
deliveries the company will pay 25
cents extra per ton ; for December beets
30 cents ; for January beets 35 cents ;
for February beets 40 cents per ton.
When asked what , in his opinion ,
would the crop for this factory be ,
Ferrar stated that they figured on no
less than 33,000 tons. This , he said ,
was the lowest possible estimate. The
factory had about 4,000 acres contracted
at the beginning of the season. Supposing -
posing 500 acres in the different counties -
ties had failed , there still would be
3,500 acres in good condition , and these
will certainly average more than : gin
tons to the acre. A few farmers who
have taken good care of their beets expect -
pect to harvest twenty-five tons to the
acre. The Grand island factory expects -
pects to begin the manufacture of sugar
September 1 and run five or six months.
Two hundred men per day will be employed -
ployed , half of them on the day shift

Was Most Magnificently
BOSTON , Sept. 9.-A passer by discovered -
covered fire at 10:05 o'clock this morning -
ing in the Masonic temple , one of the
finest Masonic buildings in the United
States , the place where the Knights
Templar triennial conclave was held
last week , and a few moments later
an alarm was given from box 53 , noted
as being located in one of the most
dangerous fire districts in the city.
At almost the' same time an alarm
was sent in from box 72 in the Parker
house , and all the fire apparatus down
town hurried to that place. The hotel
blaze proved to be trivial , but the confusion -
fusion resulting from the almost simultaneous -
taneous alarms gave the fire in the
Temple a good start before the apparatus -
District Chief Kagan , who was on
top of tie ] tower of the Tremontstreet
side of the building , found the flames
curling up around him and was forced
to jump to the roof , almost twenty
feet below. he escaped uninjured.
About the same timeatube on chemical -
ical engine No. 2 exploded and Lieutenant -
tenant Madden , who was working on
the engine , was thrown to the ground
and probably fatally injured. He
struck on his head and it was believed
his skull was fractured.
In less than an hour the roof of the
magnificent building had fallen , carrying -
rying down what the fire had left of
the three upper stories , and making
hopeless the task of saving anything
but the lower floor.
The temple was one of the most
magnificently furnished Masonic
buildings in the country and the loss
will be over $500,000. The building
cost about $750,000. Valuable papeis

HYPNOTISM IN CRIME.
The Subject Discussed by the Medico-
NEW YORK , Sept. 9.-The third day's
session of the Medico-Legal congress
began by the reading by Clark Bell of
a paper by Gustave Boehm on "The
Brutality , of Capital Punishment. "
The author contended that the death
penalty had no deterrant effect ; that
it was a relic of feudal barbarism , and
was merely an act of revenge on the
part of the state. The afternoon ses-
lion was opened with the reading of a
paper by Clark Bell on "Hypnotism in
the Courts of Law. "
Mr. Bell pointed out that it
appeared the majority of medical men
in this country did not recognize hypnotic -
notic trance as an existing fact. The
lawyers and judges were on the same
grounds.as the doctors. In the courts
of Europe the contrary was the fact
and men of the highest character and
professional attainments devoted their
best efforts to its study and elucida-
tion. As it was tvitlr professional men ,
so it is with the people.
Professor Carl Sextus of Chicago
wrote to say that a natural criminal
could be made to do criminal acts
under hypnotic influence , but not a
person of real moral worth. Dr. W. L.
Howard of Baltimore said that hypnotism -
tism was a reality. He gave several
instances of hypnotized persons in
Baltimore , including his own servant ,
whom he sent to a neighboring physicians -
cians laboratory to steal everything
the doctor had. lie restored the fellow
while he had the articles still in his
possession. The doctor confessed that
it affected the man's brain somewhat ,
but lie always took care , except on this
occasion , to get the subject back into
a good mental state before lie completely -
pletely restored him.
The doctor also hypnotized a bank
cashier and made him steal $ -15,000. He
performed an operation in the John
Hopkins university with the patient
under hypnotic influence. Hypnotism
was invaluable as a corrector of
morals. Dr- . Grover of Massachusetts
told of a young woman in Boston who
had a tendency to tuberculosis being
cured by hypnotic influence.
The Bond Syndicate Fails to Kecp Up
the Gold Reserve Fund.
WASHINGTON , Sept. 9.-A telegram
received at the treasury department
states that $1,000,000 in gold has been
withdrawn for export from the sub-
treasury at New York. Slight gains ,
however , were made at Chicago and
other points , aggregating $186,000 , so
the true amount of the reserve at the
close of business was $98,513,529. The
cash balance was $181,577,168.
The treasury officials maintain their
usual reticence on the subject , but
there is no doubt that they were somewhat -
what disappointed and surprised that
the syndicate permitted the business
day to close without making any de-
posit. From the first the officials have
confidently believed $100,000,000 was
the lowest point which the syndicate
would permit the reserve to reach ,
and hence their inaction at this time
is not understood. There is , however ,
no alarm felt , as it is expected the
syndicate will come to the rescue on
the first sign of uneasiness on the part
of the public.
HURLBUT IS DEAD.
A Noted Americanm Newspaper Man

CADENABBIA , Italy , Sept. 9.-W-il
ham henry Hurlbut is dead ,

chased the Commercial Advertiser , intending -
tending to publish it as a free trade
paper , and his associates failing to

Weed. IIe went to Mexico in 1866 , and
was invited to the capitol by
Maximilian. He represented the
New York World at time world's fair at
Paris in 1567 , and the centennary festival -
tival of St. Peter in Rome , and in 1871
accompanied the United States expedition -
dition to Santa Domingo , during which
time he published a very - complete history -
tory of that island. In-1876-83 he was

Severe Storms Damage a Church , Resi-

o'clock yesterday afternoon. Rain
fell at intervals all the afternoon , culminating -
minating in a storm which was the
worst known in twenty years. The
water came down in streams. The l
rain was accompanied by a terrific
electrical display , and by a high wind ,
which did great damage. The First
Methodist Episcopal church and several -
eral private residences were damaged
by water. On Main street , for half a
block , on each side of the Willow
branch , several business houses were
flooded. In all the low lying districts
the occupants were driven from their
houses. The railways suffered much
damage. Many mines were flooded ,
and the loss from this will be heavy.

PLATFOR3 [ OE PRINCIPLES.
The democrats of Nebraska , in eonS
vention assembled , congratulate the
country upon the sure signs of returning -
ing prosperity. In spite of the evil
predictions alike of protectionists and
sflver inflationists , the country is steadily -
ily and surely gaining ground , thus
justifying the wisdom of the reversal
of the republican policies of protective
tariff taxes and coinage of a redundant
quantity of token-dollars. The fact
that the wheels of industry , so lone
silenced as a consequence of these policies -
cies by a lcng and depressing panic ,
have resumed their wonted motion and
that more than 300,000 laoorers are receiving -
ceiving an increase of wages of 12 per
cent proves this assertion.
We send greeting and congratula
tions to Grover Cleveland and his cabinet -
inet , not only for their wise and prudent -
dent course which has aided so much
in bringing about the better financial
condition , but also for their firm and
fearless adherence throughout the long
depression to sound principles of economies -
omies ; for their just conception of the
rights of the whole people , and for
their unswerving fidelity in upholding
and protecting the honor and integrity
of the nation against organized mob

platform of IS92 and the interpretation
placed thereon by the president , and
we declare ourselves unequivocally and
unreservedly for that metallic money
as the standard unit , the bullion and
mint value of whichare approximately
the same , the purchasing power of
which , regardless of government mintage -
age , is the least fluctuating in all the
markets of the civilized world. We
insist upon this policy as especiallyy
necessary for the protection of the
farmers , laborers and property owning
debtors the most defenseless victims
of unstable money and fluctuating currency -
Free coinage of silver , 10 to 1 , means
silver monometallism : it means poorer
money and less of it ; it means less
wages for the laboring man and less
actual money for the farmer and very
much less credit , as well as money for
the business man. It means bankruptcy -
ruptcy for all , save the mine owner.
ONLY 0N1 MENACE
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 guarantees -
for the - volume
tees maintaining necessaryvol -
ume of the currency which shall be devised -
vised by a competent , non-partisan cur- (

He said that whether locally- the con-
est was crowned by victory or defeat
he thought that the duty of the convention -
vention had been done by holding up
before the people the principles of their I
