Gov. Holcomb last week issued the
legal proclamation for the approaching
election. Nebraska electors will have
a chance to vote for eight presidential
electors , six congressmen , governor and

The West Nebraska conference of
the M. E. church convened at Ogallala.
There were 200 ministers in attend
ance , who were entertained by the.cit-
izens of that place. The first day's
exercises were principally class exami
nations. In the evening an address of
weleome was delivered by Hon. L. B.
Rector of Ogallala and response was
made by D. D. Forsyth of Elm Creek ,
after which Bev. It S. Moore delivered
the conference sermon.
Joe Pinkava , a farmer living near
Crab Orchard , Gage county , beat his
wife with a hatchet , breaking her skull
in several places and mangled her
body badly. Doctors say she will not
live. After the assault Pinkava ran
to his neighbor's , borrowed a revolver ,
stating after securing it , that he would
shoot himself. He ran for the woods
and fired two shots at a tree. As no
trace of his body can be found it is be
lieved that he fled. Parties are in pur
suit. Family troubles seem to be the
The executive committee has foun (
it necessary to postpone the' meeting of
the fourth annual convention of the
Nebraska state irrigation association ,
to have been held at Lexington from
October 7 , 8 and 9 to November 19 , 20
and 21. The selection of these dates
was thought to be essential to the
most complete success of the meeting.
There were conflicting meetings and
engagements of a large number who
were particularly anxious to attend ,
and the change was made by unani
mous decision.
Edward E. Spencer of Otoe county ,
who was charged with the murdb of
John Bicker and found guilty of man
slaughter , was sentenced to ten years
in the penitentiary by Judge Ramsey.
Other sentences were passed as fol
lows : Charles Ferguson , five years for
the larceny of some harness belonging
to a farmer near PalmyraQuiller ; Beck ,
convicted for stealing hogs , four years ;
Henry Webber who dug his way out of
jail a few days ago , but was "captured
and brought back , pleaded guilty to a
charge of daylight burglary , and got
two years.
Joe Price , the young man who stab
bed George Stadler at Cedar Creek ,
Cass county , was brought to Platts-
mouth by the sheriff and lodged in the
the county jail. Stadler is lying in a
precarious condition , with five knife
wounds in his body. He is resting easy ,
but the physician says he may yet have
a relapse. Stadler had fallen to the
ground when Price first stabbed him ,
and the knife was plunged into his
body four times while he was held on
the ground by his murderous assailant
The quarrel arose over the payment of
a keg of beer.
The fortunate discovery of three
finely tempered saws beneath a strip of
carpet on the turnstyle which admits
prisoners of the county jail from the
outer corridor , undoubtedly prevented
a general jail delivery at the county
jail in Lincoln. It is supposed that the
saws were introduced in plugs of to
bacco , bestowed upon prisoners by
thoughtful friends. The jail at this
time contains a large number of des
perate criminals , among whom are the
notorious thief , Bill. Rose , and Hagey ,
the alleged murderer of the eastern
capitalist , W. F. Eyster.
Washington dispatch : Secretary
Francis today rendered a number of
decisions , his first since assuming office.
The cause of the United States against
Thomas Cooper , Win. J. Gillen and Kit
Carson Cattle companj * , from McCook
district of Nebraska was finally dis
posed of by the secretary's refusing to
entertain a motion filed by the defend
ants for a review of the departmental
decision refusing to re-instate the Mc-
Gillen homestead entry. It was held
that the cattlecompany was not an in
nocent purchaser within the meaning
of the act of March 3 , 1891.

The 14-year-old son of Dr. Armstrong
of Beatrice , died as the result of a fall
from a bicycle , in which he sustained
concussion of the brain.
Many farmers of Platte county have
lost hogs recently with cholera or some
similar disease. Some have lost but , a
few , while the losses of others has been
heavy. Some say it is not the old
fashioned cholera , but do not pretend
to name the disease.
Sheriff Nelson took possession of the
Tribune newspaper plant at Beatrice
on a writ of replevin issued by the coun
ty court in an action wherein Ed.S.Mil-
ler is the plaintiff. Miller holds title
to the office by virtue of a bill of sale.
The Tribune is the local populist or
gan , and has always had a precarious
existence , since the populists bestow
'their patronage on the Times.

issue Taken With Both the Extremist !
and Air. Gladstone and Ills Follow
ers Great Britain's Interests All
for Peace His Retirement
irrevocable AsqnltU
Fropable Successor.
Edinburgh , Oct 12. Four thousand
people gathered in the Empire theater
here last night to hear Lord Rosebery ,
the retiring leader of the Liberal par
ty , explain his motives in retiring.
When he appeared the whole assem
bly sang "For He's a Jolly Good
Fellow. "
Lord Rosebery said that he had
resigned because he could not sacrifice
national interests to personal ambi
tion. He welcomed the national agi
tation in Great Britain on behalf of
Armenia , because it would convince
foreign governments of Great Brit
ain's unselfish integrity and would
strengthen the hands of the" govern
ment , but the present agitation , Lord
Rosebery pointed out , differed from
Mr. Gladstone's Bulgarian agitation.
In dealing with the various remedies
proposed for the settlement of the
Turkish question , the speaker said :
"The mere deposition of the sultan
would be no remedy , as the system
and not the man must be tackled.
More , this would be impossible with
out the concert of the powers , and if
that were attained it would be better
to call upon it to deal with the
larger issue involved. The proposal
to withhold the Cyprus tribute is im
practicable , as this is paid to the sul
tan's creditors and not to the sultan ,
as it would be like tickling the tor
toise's back to make it laugh. " '
Regarding the proposal to place th e
Dardanelles or Turkey in the hands
of Russia , Lord Rosebery pointed out
that neither of these was Great Brit
ain's to dispose of , and Russia's meth
ods were not so ideal as to warrant
British acquiescence. He also differed
from Mr. Gladstone's proposal to cut
off diplomatic relations with Turkey ,
but they differed , he added , as
A warm eulogy of Mr. Gladstone
followed , but the ex-premier contin
ued that he even deprecated' the pro
posal of such a thing , as it would not
only deprive Great Britain of all her
influence with lurkey , but might
drive it into war , and itsjfailure would
leave Great Britain in the same posi
tion plus the public humiliation of
confessing her impotence.
Lord Rosebery also differed from
Mr. Gladstone in his contention that
Great Britain was bound in honor by
the Cyprus convention to intervene.
"Peace , " Lord Rosebery affirmed ,
"is a necessity of your empire. For
the last twenty years you have been
laying hands with frantic eagerness
on every available and desirable tract
of territory. The amount thus
brought into your possession or sphere
of influence in the last twelve vears
is 1\5UO,000 square miles. This policy
has produced two results first the ex
citing of an almost intolerable degree
of envy in the other colonizing na
tions , entailing their malevolence now
instead of their benevolence ; second ,
the making of an unwieldy empire ,
difficult to administer and to defend
until a long period of peace effects its
consolidation. "
After reminding his audience how
Cobden , Bright and Gladstone had
been publicly reviled for the advocacy
of an unpopular peace policy , Lord
Roseberry declared : "Although I am
aware that it is unpopular to advocate
diplomatic methods. I shall never
cease to exert my voice and strength
against England engaging in such a
dangerous war , of which you can see
the eloquent commencement , but no
body living can see the catastrophe
or the end. "
Unless his retirement should pro
duce unity , Lord Roseberry said , the
sacrifice would have been in vain. He
advised them that whoever was
chosen leader , they should support
him loyally , , for a united party , be
hind an inferior leader was better
than a disgruntled party behind the
best leader. He closed by thanking
his colleagues for their kindness , and
predicted that Mr. Asquith's qualities
of head and heart would eventually
lead him to the highest office in the
Augustine Dirrell , member .of Par
liament for the West division of Fife ,
then moved a .resolution requesting
that Lord Roseberry should recon
sider his resignation. This was car
ried unanimously.
. Mr. Asquith , in his speech , sup
ported the resolution , declaring that
Lord Roseberry enjoyed the full con
fidence of all his late colleagues.
Lord Roseberry. replying , said that
his decision to retire was the result
of mature reflection and was absolute
and was taken under a conviction of
National Democrats Not Allowed.

Colorado McKinley Republicans Act.
Denver , Colo. , Oct12. . On appli
cation of Chairman Hodges of the Mc-
Ktnley Republican State committee ,
the supreme court issued a writ of
mandamus requiring Secretary of
State MeGaffey to appear Monday and
show cause why lie should notv certify
the nominations of the Republican
State convention to the county
clerks , to be printed on the official
ballots. Upon the issue of this suit
will hinge the question whether any
votes can be cast in Colorado for McKinley -
Kinley and Hobart except by writing
the names of the electors in the blank
spaces on the ballot.

She Missouri Democratic Committee
Ignores the I'opullit Proposition.
St. Loins , Mo. , Oct 12. That there
will be no fusion between the Dem
ocrats and the Populists on the state
ticket was settled by the action of the
Democratic state committee to-day.
After a session of fifteen minutes , it
formally ratified the action of the
sub-committee in effecting fusion on
the electoral ticket by giving the Pop
ulists four places , and adjourned
without even discussing the proposi
tion of the Populists to give them two
places on the Democratic state ticket
in return for not putting put their
list of nominees.
Immediately after the meeting Sec
retary Love said the Democrats would
file their joint electoral ticket and
their regular Democratic state ticket
at once.
When apprised of the action of the
Democratic state committee Chairman
Rosseile , of the Populist state com
mittee said he would also file at once
the complete Populist ticket nom
inated at Sedalia.
Daring Deeds of a Band of Women Led
by an Avenging Senorita.
Chicago , Oct. 12. A special from
Key West says : "Advices from Remedies -
edios tell of the gallant deeds of a
band of Amazons headed by Senorita
Martini Hernandez Perez. They are
mounted and have been in the vicinity
of Vueltas for some time. Last Satur
day afternoon Senorita Perez , at the
head of her band , dashed upon the
town. Twelve Spanish soldiers at
'the gate were put to the machete.
The Amazons then rode through the
streets cutting down other Spanish
soldiers who were lounging in front
of a cafe. In the plaza 200 Spaniards
were charged. The Spaniards fired a
volley , which killed three Amazons ,
and then fled to the barracks after
losing eight of their number. A year
ago Martinez's fiancee was a captain
in the Cuban army , but after he was
captured and put to death by the
Spaniards , she vowed vengeance and
organized her band , the members of
which are sworn to never spare a
Spaniard. "
Conservatives in Cuba Dem ind a Chanso

New Orleans , La. , Oct 12. A spe
cial cable to the Pica3'une from Ha
vana says : "I have been reliably in
formed and have seen a cop"y of a
telegram sent by the Spanish element ,
the Conservatives , against General
Weyler , asking for his removal on the
ground that his continuing in office
means the sure loss of the island.
The telegram farther recites the fact
that a large part of the Cuban element
will be willing to accept home rule if
with it will be appointed another cap
tain general. There is a positive as
surance from friends here to the ef
fect that General Martinez Campos is
willing and anxious so return to Cuba ,
but that he will not come until he
brings the home rule concessions with

Ten Thousand Homos , Including Every

Grocery and Supply Houses Destroyed
Intense Suffering Is Certain Before
Supplies Arrive.
An Awful Holocaust.
Guayaquil , Ecuador , Oct. 10. It la
estimated that the financial loss to
the city by the fire of Monday night
and Tuesday will run far up in the
millions. Some reports estimate it as
over 50 million dollars. Many lives
were lost , just how many it is impos
sible to say , as yet , and over 35,000
persons are homeless.
Two thousand houses , including
every bank in the city , of which there
were-five , were burned. The customs
house , theater and many other public
buildings were also swept away and
the entire business portion of the city
was laid waste.
Practically all of the grocery and
6upply stores are gone and thousands
of residents , homeless and hungry ,
swarm the streets and the neighbor
ing woods. It is impossible from the
present food supply in and near Guay
aquil , to supply the sufferers , and un
til assistance reaches here from other
cities in Ecuador the suffering will be

before those who were asleep could be

Scores are missing , and , though it is
impossible 'to estimate the number of
deaths now , the figures will of necessity -
sity be large.
The fire started in a small dry goods
store. It is believed that this store
was fired by incendiaries. The police
have made several arrests so far , and
the people are so wrought up that
numerous threats to lynch or burn
the prisoners at the stake have been
made. Business , in the meantime ,
has been entirely suspended , and
every effort is directed toward reliev
ing the distress of the sulFerers.
The Spanish General Deliberately mis
represents Treatment of American' * .
New York , Oct. 10. A special from
Ilarana "says Weyler is fooling Lee.
The order prohibiting the American
consul general from visiting the mili
tary prison keeps him from person
ally investigating the condition of
Americans imprisoned there. He haste
to rely on what Weyler tells
him. In their last interview Gen
eral Lee complained of the unsanitary
conditions of the cells the American
prisoners were in. Weyler replied
boldly : 'Oh , I have attended to this
matter. They have been removed to
cells 41 and 42. ' General Lee retired ,
flattered at his supposed success , not
knowing that the Americans have
always occupied cells Nos. 41 and 42.
Those cells , b3' the way , are gloomy
and so damp that water oozes from
the ceiling and trickles down the
walls , wetting the floor , which never
dries. In one of these wretched cells
are Melton , the American newspaper
correspondent , and George Aguirre ,
locked with a man suffering from

AIcKinley and the Gold Standard Up

Chicago , Oct 10. Last night Col
onel | Robert G Ingersoll spoke for
McKinley and the gold standard in a
big tent to an audience estimated at
2o : , 00. He said three great questions
were at issue currency , tariff and
the question whether an appeal lay
from the supreme 'eourt to a mob.
As to the first question Colonel In
gersoll said that money is a part of
nature , and does not have to be re
deemed ( , for it is the redeemer. Green
backs i are not money , neither is a sil
ver dollar containing less than a dollar -
lar J ' s worth of silver unless it be exchangeable -
changeable ' for gold. It would take
a ! dollar's worth of raper to make a

more , to its value than measuring to

Chicago , Oct. 10. Chicago day , the
anniversary i of the great fire twenty-
five : years ago , was celebrated chiefly
as ' a political holiday by Republicans
and j Democrats separately , each nartv
having its own street parade , as well
as gatherings indoors. Practically
every factory and store was closed , as
were also the board of trade and
banks. From early morning the j
streets were jammed with cheering i
thousands , struggling to gain some
