Kansas Citv , Mo. , 'June 14. Dr. I
Von Quast of the city health deparl
'ment has a two-bladed pocket-knif
with an ebony and brass mounte
handle which , it is asserted , is th
property of the city marshal of Pile
Grove , Mo. The knife was sw ' allowe
one week ago to-day by Harry Whai
len , otherwise the "human ostrich ,
while giving a street performance c
gastronomical feats in that place.
Dr. E. Von Quast , assisted by a nun
ber of other surgeons , cut Whallen' '
stomach open at the German hospita
this morning and took therefrom eve
120 nails , knives , screws and tacks
among them being the marshal's bi ,

The astonishing fact is that Whallci
carried this remarkable collection o
junk in his stomach a week and i
still alive. The case is the most re
markable of its kind that has eve
come to the attention of doctors an <
surgeons in Kansas City , and it ha :

Whallen is a professional showman
He began swallowing nails and glas ;
when he was a lad 10 years ( old. H (
soon found his way into a dime mu
seum and later into a side show H (
traveled all over the United State :
with Barnum ' s and other big , circnsei
as a "human ostrich" and a center
tionist. He can twist himself intc
almost any shape , so supple are his
joints , and until a week ago he coulc
swallow with safety any object thai
would pass dotvn his throat.
CAUSE OF HIS TROUBLE. ,
Not long ago Whallen was stranded
in St. Louis. He began to work his
way to Kansas City by giving street
performances in small towns. Upon
these occasions he would swallow
nails , knives and tacks and any in
credulous individual in the audience
who cared to risk his pocket knife for
the sake of further testing Whallen's
swallowing ability was generally ac
The pocket knife feat caused Whal
len's trouble. He swallowed a two-
bladed Barlow knife belonging to the
city marshal of Pilot Grove and it
lodged in his stomach. Tlmrsday he
went to the city dispensary and told
Dr. Van Quast aad Dr. Smythe that he
had 100 nails , knives , tacks and other
hardware and cutlery in his stomach.
They refused to believe his story , but
upon examining him found that some
hard .substance had lodged there.
Whallen insisted that he was telling
the truth and it was determined to ap
ply the X rays.
This was done by Dr. J. N. Scott in
the presence of several doctors and
newspaper reporters. X ray proto-
rjraphs of Whallen's stomach were
taken with the powerful Crooke's

Frame work of the man's body and a
lark spot almost as large as a man ' s
land showed the exact location of the
nass of knives , nails and glass. An
effort was made to look through Whal
len ' s body with the X rays and the
auoroscope. His ribs and vertebra
could be easily discerned , his heart
pulsations seen and the metal mass
jutlined , but the rays were not pow-
; rful enough to define what the object
• eally was. It was found that the
netal was lodgcrd in the large sack
vhich is technically called the stom-
ich. Whallen's sufferings became in-
ense as the incongruous substances ,

ermined to have an operation per-

AN EDITOR ASSAULTED.
Major John L. Blttingcr of the &
Joseph Herald Attacked.
St. JosKnr , Mo. , June 14. Ex-Coi
gressman George C. Crowther and Mi
jor John L. Bittinger , editor of th
Herald , had a bloody fight on a strec
car just before noon to-day.
They too "k the same seat on an ope
street car and disputed nbout an intei
view with Major Bittinger publishe
in the Daily "News yesterday , in whic
he had called the ex-congressman
liar.r Major Bittinger said the intei
view was correct. He was- then a ;
tacked by Crowther , who hit him sei
eral times in the face.
Blood poured from the cuts made b
the ex-congressman's fist , and the tw
men grappled. The car proceeded an
the combatants nearly fell off in thei
struggles. Bittinger bled freely , bu
the fight was continued until the
were pulled apart by other men on th
car.Crowther's face was considerabl
scratched , but his injuries are not se
rious. Major Bittinger afterward
repeated the statemen t that Crow the
is untruthful and said he was willin ]
to meet him again with any kind c
weapons Crowther may select.
The fight was a result of the post
office controversy and the long politi
cal enmity that has existed betweei
the two men. Major Bittinger sal
to-day that he will drive Crowther ou
of politics , and it is likely that th
trouble is not yet ended.

Secretary Long , however , founc
that the engineer corps was badly ir
need of officers , owing to the rapid
depletion of the ranks of the older en
gineers in late years , and he decided
that as these young men had been ed
ucated at the expense of the govern
ment they should render service in
return. The cadets upon admission
to the academy are required to pledge
themselves to serve the government
not less than eight years , so these men
now will be obliged to take the usual

that They Were Not Adopted A Ma

The Constitutional Amendments.
The supreme court has decided thai
the constitutional amendment increas
ing the number of judges of the couri
from three to five was not adopted at
the election last fall. This deeisior
was handed down Thursday before tlu
court adjourned for the sitting. The
question was raised in a banking cast
from Johnson county and the court ha ;
passed upon it , holding that a majoritj
of all votes cast at the d Section on anj
proposition is necessary for adoption
of a constitutional amendment. Tlu
court rendered practically the sann
opinion in the suit instituted by AV. J.
Bryan to prc'ent the city of Lincoln
from issuing gold bonds.
The. question of adoption of the con
stitutional amendment was raised by
attorneys in the case of the Tecnmseli
National Bank vs. Anna It. Saunders ,
error from Johnson county , on a mo
tion for a rehearing. The attorneys
gave several reasons for asking a re
hearing. One reason that the case
was reversed by the action of twe
judges , Chief Justice Post and Judge
Harrison joining in an opinion for re
versal and Judge Norval for affirmance.
The attorneys alleged that before the
court rendered an opinion a constitu
tional amendment increasing the num
ber of judges to five was adopted by
a vote of the people and therefore two
judges of the court could not render
an opinion for the court , the neces
sary majority of the court being lack

that part of the decision and in Judge
Norval's opinion so far as it relates to
the constitutional question.

opinion is as follows :

Relics of the "War Missing- .
Some time ago ex-Gov. Furnas was
at the state house , and while visiting
in the rooms of the adjutant general ,
of the Nebraska national guard ex
pressed surprise that the flags , guidons
and other relics of the Second Nebras
ka and the four companies of the Cur
tis Horse were not in the state house.
The Curtis Horse Avas made up from
Nebraska men , but was consolidated
ivith the Fifth Iowa cavalry. The relics
af the First Nebraska are at the office
af the adjutant general , but wherea
bouts of the others are unknown.
Sen. Barry wrote to Mr. Furnas about
the matter , and has received a reply
which says :
• 'My Dear General : Referring to
fours of May 28 , when I left the office
sf governor , all the war relics of the
Second Nebraska cavalry were in the

em to the eminent satisfaction of the

ilan is that the site be used for an In

las decided to recommend that another
ndian school be established to meet a
ositive necessity for the accommoda-
ion of about 500 pupils and Senator
Jlen is sure that the Fort Omaha res-
rvation will so perfectly serve the
urpose that he proposes soon to intro-
uce a bill providing that the school be

SUGAR SCHEDULE DEBATE-
A Labyrinth of Technlcnl Dotalln of
I.lttlo 1'tthllc Interest
Washington , June 12. The long
deferred debate on the sugar schedule
of the tariff bill came on abruptly ut 1
o ' clock yesterday , after the Senate
had disposed of the cereals in the agri
cultural schedule. Senators and spec
tators soon lapsed into a state of'
indifference as the speeches dealt witli
a labyrinth of technical details , of'
A'ital interest , though , to the sugar re
finer and expert.
Mr. Jones of Arkansas opened the
debate , to some extent answering Mr.
Aldrlch's statement on the sugar
schedule. It was argument active and A
lacking in any severe denunciatory
features. The Senator held that the I
rates proposed gave the refiners an
excessive differential and pointed out •
how they hud thrived on the one-
eighth differential 01 the present law.
Mr. Vest severely criticised the
Sugar trust and artrued that the rates *
Avere a further tribute to its vast re
sources. Mr. Caffery of Louisiana
also opposed the schedule as a whole.
Early in the day Mr. Till.iiiin of'
South Carolina made a lively spjech iti
favor of the amendment giving an ex
port dity on agricultural products.
After some running debate a vote
was taken on the Cannon amendment , ,
providing an export bounty for agri
cultural products , and it was defeated'
yeas , 10 ; nays , fit ) . The affirmative i
Vote was given by Messrs. Allen. But

feld , Populists ; Cannon , Mantle , Petti-
grew , sih'er Republicans ; Roach and j
Tillman , Democrats. 1
Mr. Pettigrew of Sonth Dakota gave
notice that he would offer his amendment -
ment to admit free of duty goods made - j k
by trusts at the end of the sugar < WB
schedule. * H
