The decision of the supreme court ,
holding the sugar and chicory bounty
law unconstitutional , has given those
industries a hard blow. The loss to
the beet and chicory raisers in Dodge
county alone from failure to receive
the extra SI per ton for beets of the

ton for chicory , will run well up into
the thousands.

of the factory people is to close up the
factory on beets Jan. 7.

Dr. Ratkermel of Denver was in Cal
houn the other day and went over to
the Wagner farm , on which it was
claimed gold in paying quantities was
discovered last spring. He declares
that there are several gold veins , one
of which will run $ o0 to the ton in

The news has revived the excitement
there that existed when the first an
nouncement that gold had been dis
covered was made , and owners of ad

and his father were doctoring a sick
horse which had given them considera
ble trouble. They had both worked
with it sometime , when the father was
called away. On returniag , his son
George , a young man about twenty-
four years , was found lying on his face

Secretary Williamson of the Nebras
ka Club is in receipt of a letter from a
resident of Bennett , Pa. , representing
a colony of German-Americans wishing
to locate in the west ; also a letter from
Gov. Holcomb , to whom the same party
had written. Besides giviug the com
munication careful attention , the mat
ter has been referred to various local
clubs in this state , so that altogether
the Pennsylvania citizen and his colony
ny are in a fair way to get all the de
sired information , together with sev
eral warm invitations to "come to Ne
braska ; " also a very positive impres
sion that Nebraskans are wide awake
and ready to extend a hearty welcome
to all good new comers. This sort of
work is what commends the Nebraska
Club to the ready support of the people
of this state.
Burglars entered the house of John
Andresen , a farmer living two miles
sast of Elkhorn and secured S8 for
their labor. As Mr. Andresen has been
in the habit of keeping large sums in
the house , the opinion prevails that the
thief was not a stranger.

Congressman ami Senator-Elect Money
of MiKHfoslppi to Visit Cuba and
Malco a Personal Investigation
and Interview General "VTcy-
ler Captain General's
I.atist Interview.
Washington , Bee. 2S. It is denied
officially and authoritatively that any
European government cither directly
or indirectly has made any representa
tions whatever to the United States to
restrain or prevent its free action in
connection with the Cuban insurrec
tion. A similar report was denied by
authority several weeks ago. A. Von
Bruening , secretary of the German em
bassy , said that so far as the embassy
here was concerned no such intimation
had been received. He discredited the
whole story. "We have not heard a
word concerning Cuba , * ' said he , "for
three montlis. "
Senator-elect Money of Mississippi ,
now a member of the House foreign
affairs committee , proposes to leave
Tampa , Fla. , next Saturday morning
for Havana , to remain a week or ten
daj's in Cuba. He will seek an audi
ence with Captain General Wcylcr and
will ask him to provide an escort and
a ilag of truce , so that he can go into
the heart of the territory occupied by
the insurgents , with a view of finding
out what is going on. Mr. Money says
he is determined to make as lengthy a
journey into the interior of Cuba as
his time will permit , and it is under
stood that he will endeavor to com
municate with the insurgents whether
Captain General Weyler grants him
permission or not. He realizes that it
will be a risky thing for him to proceed
on his own account if a permit is refused
him. However , he is so anxious to
have trustworthy information that he
will take the chances , even if he finds
himself later locked up in prison. It
is his intention to state frankly to the
captain general that he visits the
island because it is impossible to
procure from President Cleveland or
Secretary Olncy any official informa
tion regarding the condition of affairs
in Cuba , and , as a member of Congress
and of the House committee on foreign
affairs , he wishes to know what he is
doing before he casts his vote for or
against any one of the several resolu
tions pending.
Mr. Money was an officer in the Con
federate army during the war under
General Forrest , and his four years'
service in the field whetted his interest
in military operations. He thinks
that liis visit will at least enable him
to learn more than he could by depend
ing on the State department for in >

from S00 to 3.000 men each , occupying
all the hills of the province These
columns liave desiroj'ed everything in
sight and have been able to subsist on
the cattle of the insurgents , which
were found grazing in the hills , and
with , whose destruction died the re
maining hope of sustenance. They
must either starve or submit and some
may prefer to do the former , owing to
their remarkable apathy. '

tados , general , in other words , persons
willing to lay down their arms ? '
" 'That is cleared .

tados , but have been told that I mur

not ? Certainly I shallnot harm them ,

Easily Knocked Out by Peter Dlalicr
In " Seconds.
New York , Dec. 23. It took just
twenty-seven seconds' time for Peter
Maher , the Irish pugilist , to again de
monstrate his superiority in ring
tactics and hard hitting qualities over
Steve O'Donnell , the Australian boxer ,
in the arena of the Greater New York
Athletic Club at Coney Island. Both
men were in excellent condition and
trained to the hour. Each of them
was confident , but Maker ' s backers
made him a hot favorite by laying
odds ranging from .1 to 5 to 1 on the
Irishman's chances of winning.
From the outset Maher never left
the result in doubt. He rushed at
O'Donnell the moment the referee
called time , and O'Donnell assumed
the defensive. The big Anstralian led
his left for Makers body , but the
Irishman blocked the blow with his
right hand glove. Then Maher sent
his left to the chin and swung again
with his left on the face. lie put
O'Donnell to the floor a second later
with a left on the chin , and , after the
Australian regained his feet , Maher
landed a left smash on the jaw , follow
ing it quickly with a left half-hook ,
which sent O'Donnell down in a heap.
Steve rolled over on his back in a help
less condition , and the referee slowly
counted him out.

Rumor That Spain "Will Blake Overtures
to the Rebels.
New York , Dec. 2 8. A Madrid spe
cial says : It is rumored that General
Weyler has delayed fresh operations
against the insurgents in order to give
time to discover the disposition of the
bands and their chiefs since the death
of Maceo , with a view to feeling his
way to preparing the ground for - finishing
ishing the present Cuban war like the
past insurrections in Spain and Cuba ,
where money and unofficial negotia
tions prove more telling arguments
than force of arras , directly the insur
gents saw no more hope of foreign aid.
It is also believed in diplomatic cir
cles that Spain will take advantage of
the dispositions of Presiden Cleveland
and Secretary Olney to negotiate
quickly and directly with the United
States to secure American neutrality
by granting discriminating concessions
in the contemplated Caban tarifc and
fair promises of colonial autonomy be
fore the accession of MeKinley.

"Kansas Kid" Confesses.
Seattle , Wash. , Dec. 2S. Gay
Harshman. alias "The Kansas Kid , ' '
who was convicted recently of passing
510,000 worth of counterfeit money ,
has made a statement to the effect that
his pal. George Conkling , who is now
serving time for counterfeiting , and
who squealed on him , confessed to
him that he was one of the three men
who held up the Northern Pacific train
at Hot Springs in'1394 , when the pas
sengers in the sleeper were relieved of

ling is not a bad man , but Harshman is
an old criminal and a desperate man.

Clarke. S. D. , Dec. 26. Christian
Christiansen has just been convicted of
wife murder and sentenced to the pen
itentiary for life. It was supposed
that his wife had committed suicide ,
as she was found hanging to a tree in

hung her to the tree from his wagon
and then drove out from under , leav
ing her there. Circumstantial evi-
eenee was found which rendered the
suicide theory untenable.

Sax Fraxcisco , Dec. 23. Private ad
vices from Manilla , Philippine islands ,
reached here to-day and are verified by
an account that appears in the Hong
Kong Press , received per Belgic. The
news contained in the communication
deals with the attack of the Spanish on
the Noveleta isthmus , and the at
tempt of the Spanish to uslo 'dge the
insurgents in Cavite and Vie jo. At
the end of the campaign , which lasted
until the 14th of November , the Span
ish authorities sent out dispatches re
porting that the attack had been suc
cessful , and that the rebel loss was
very heavy. The Spanish claimed to
have lost about 2. killed and 100
wpunded. It is now learned that the
great victory that the Castillians pre
dicted ended in ignominious defeat.
The rebels held Noveleta against war
ships and troops. The Spaniards re

A Towel of Blotting Paprr. H
Paper has been put to a variety of H
uses , but its most curious employment is M
foreshadowed in the recent patenting M
of a blotting-paper towel. The idea. M
is that a person on stepping out of his -J H
morning bath , instead of rubbing himself - H
self dry in the orthodox manner. H
should envelop his body in a towel of | |
blotting-paper , which will , without |
trouble , and in a few seconds , absorb B
all the moisture upon his skin. The - H
idea is ingenious , but it does away with H
that wholesome friction which many H
believe to be so beneficial to tiie skin J H
