REBILLING IS UNLAWFUL
Interstate Commerce Commission Hits' '
Grain Men a Rap.
Washington , D. C , July 19. The
Interstate Commerce Commission , in
an opinion by Commissioner Prouty , ,
announced its decision in the matter
of alleged unlawful rates and practices - ;
tices in the transportation of grain
and grain products by the Atchison , i
Topeka and Santa Fe Railway com
pany and others.
Shipments .of grain were carried to j
Kansas City , 3Io. , from points west'
thereof , at local rates , and quantities
of grain were .afterward reshipped and ;
.rebilled from Kansas City to Chicago •
.or other destinations at the balance of
the established through rate from the '
.original point of shipment to Chicago
• or other ultimate destinations , instead
of the higher local rate in force from :
Kansas City to such destination. The ]
commission held that such shipment
and rcshipment did not constitute a ' •
through shipment from the point.of.
origin to the point of final destination , ,
and grain so shipped and reshipped
was not entitled to the benefit .of the
through rate in force.

T. V. POWDERLY.
The Noted Labor leader of FennsylTanl *
Washington , July 19. The Presi
dent to-day sent to the Senate the nom
ination of Terence V. Powderly , the
noted labor leader of Pennsylvania , tc
be commissioner general of immigra
tion , and the following other nomina
tions : To be collectors of internal
revenue Frederick E. Coyne of Illi
nois for the First district of Illinois
and David A. Nunn for the Fifth dis
trict of Tennessee ; Charles S. Johnson
of Alaska , to be United States district
attorney of Alaska.
Terence V. Powderly , eleventh of a
dozen children , of Irish parentage ,
was born in Carbondale , Pa. , in 1849.
His first employment was with a canal
• company. He next entered the service
• of the Delaware , Lackawanna & West
ern railway and joined a labor organi
sation in 1871. He united with the
Knights of Labor in 1870 , rose rapidly ,
and in 1879 was elected general
worthy foreman. The September fol
lowing he became general master
workman , the highest position in the
order , which he held until his resigna
tion. The salary of the general mas
ter workman , which was only 9800 a
year in 188'i was increased to 85,000
during his incumbency.
In 1893 a stubborn fight was made
on Powderly by Jo-n W. Hayes , then
general secretary-treasurer of the
Knights of Labor , and a powerful fac
tion , and Powderly was forced to re
sign , Sovereign succeeding. Powderly
subsequently espoused Republican
principles and some of his former as
sociates called him a traitor. During
the last campaign he made speeches
for Mr. McKinley.
OPPOSED TO FREE SILVER.
The New Transmtmlsslppl President PntR
Himself on Record
Sat.t Lakb Citv , Utah , July 19.
When this morning's session of the
Transmississippi congress opened Pres
ident Craig said that the committee on
permanent organization had recom
mended him as president of the con
gress with full knowledge of his views
upon the financial question. Latter
the congress had put itself on record
as demanding the immediate restora
tion of the free and unlimited coinage
of silver at the present ratio of 16 to 1.
With his sentiments and opinions
upon the monetary question , he would
be untrue to himself and wanting in
respect for the great business inter
ests of San Francisco and California ,
which had been standing for fifty
years as a monument to sound finance ,
if he remained longer as the presiding
officer. He therefore asked the con
gress to name his successor.
William J. Bryan stated that the
financial views of Mr. Craig would not
be inconsistent with his duties as pre
The question was put to a vote and '
the congress unanimously refused tc
accept Mr. Craig's resienhtion.

Are Too Illult.
Washington. July 19. The House
agreed to the partial conference re
port on the general deficiency appro
priation bill , and then concurred in
the Senate amendment fixing the limit
of cost of armor plate for the three
battleships now building at $300 per
ton. This was the main point still in
dispute between the two houses. A
strong effort was made to induce the
House to agree to a substitute proposi
tion fixing the limit at S400 , as recom
mended by the secretary of the navy ,
but after a three hours' debate the
House , by a vote of 142 to 45 , concur
red in the Senate amendment.
On motion of Mr. Hroderick , Repub
lican , of Kansas , the Senate resolution

Attorney Gen. Smyth has filed a
claim on behalf of the state on the de
funct Exchange bank of Atkinson to
secure possession of ri5,000 which ex-
State Treasurer Hartley is said to have
deposited in that bank. The attorney
general claims the money is the prop
erty of the state. Hartley has not pre
sented a claim to the receiver and the
sixty-day period allowed by law for
the filing of claims expires today. The
filing of this claim is in addition to a
petition for intervention filed by the
state in the district court. As a hear

court before the expiration of the sixty
days , the claim was filed with the re

As the deposit of Hartley is said to be

a claim with the receiver to repudiate
Hartley ' s action In milking the deposit
and expressly refuses to ratify the act
of depository. This Is done in order
to prevent anyone from showing that
the deposit was regularly made and
authorized and from binding the state
by Hartley's act.
The claim presented by the attorney
general Is in this form :
"Now comes the state of Nebraska
by its nttorney general , Constantine J.
Smyth , and states that the Exchange
bank of Atkinson is in equity indebted
to the state of Nebraska in the sum of
S.15.000 and files its claim against said
bank for said sum , which claim is sup

to. Said state , however expressly re

A number of the state exposition di
rectors were in the city today , saj\s a
Lincoln dispatch , being under tile im
pression that they would receive their
commissions and be able to hold a busi
ness meeting. They have been noti
fied by the governor that their com
missions will be issued Monday and
they are called to hold a meeting Tues
day. The governor has not yet de
cided what course to pur.iue in regard
to the appointment of Martin Dunham.
It is reported that Mr. Dunham will

tion to that effect has been received
from him. Should another appoint
ment be made in place of Mr. Dunham ,
it is probable that T. F. Sturgis of
Omaha will be chosen , although C. A.

Washington dispatch. H. Sling , Hip

Sling and his partners have secured
concessions for a tiieatre and joss

the buildings can only be erected by

They will also be kept under espion

WILL GO $15 A TON.
Nebraska Gold Flold Will Pay to
J. S. Dillenbcck , the owner of the
goldbcaring grovel beds about seven
teen miles west of tlie city , says the
Lincoln Journal , is satisfied that all
difficulties have been conquered and
that nothing stands in the way of tak
ing millions of dollars in gold from his
farm. His confidence has been
changed to positive conviction within
a day or two by tlie receipt of a check
forSl' which handled an experi
mental run of bullion from his little
smelter. This , Mr. Dillenbeck says ,
is the first money ever derived from
gold milling in Nebraska.
Accompanying Urn check were com
plete statements of the gold secured
and the cost of working , together with
tlie following letter :
St. Louis , Mo. , July 12. J. S. Dillen
beck , Pleasant Dale , Neb. , Dear Sir :
Please find enclosed statement of your
shipment to us of twenty-three pounds
of bullion , and also of the last of.1.5
pounds , which wo trust will be en
tirely satisfactory. This shows the
ore to run from G8 a ton up , which
gives sufficient value to pay to treat
You will please find enclosed state
, ment showing a balance due you of
S15.SG cents , for which you will please
find check enclosed. According to
your statement in sending your last
bullion , you run through about 4,000
pounds. If this be true , it shows your
ore to be worth Sir. ' .75 per ton. In
treating j'our ores in tlie small smel
ters there is a loss of at least 10 per
cent to the value of the ores , as given
by us , and you will have the value of
the ores as nearly as can be given.
We see no reason why your ores can
not be treated on 4i large scale and

Mr. Dillenbeck was in Lincoln yes
terday , showing the paper to his
friends. "I have been called a fool
und a crank and an idiot , " said lie ,
"but this shows that Dillenbeck knew
what he was about all the time.
There ' s millions of tons of this ore on
my farm , and some of it'll go a whole
lot more than SI.r a ton. It costs me
about S1.G5 a ton to run it through my
little smelter. Say it costs me S'i and
till my other expenses are in proportion
tion , and still my ore is richer than the
Homestake mine in the Hlaek Hills.
You can say there is no doubt about it ,
Dillenbeck has got it all right now.
even if they did fool me and vex me
and cost me a whole lot of money with
experiments. ' It's there and now I
know how to get it out. I believe
some parts of my farm will go a mil
lion dollars an acre. The gravel is
fifty feet deep , and ought to get richer
'ill the way down. "
Does Farming ? Fay ?
The Kansas City Star says : The Ne
braska labor commissioner is receiving
replies from farmers to the questions :
"Does ? " ' and "What
farming pay legis
lation do you think is necessary to re
lieve the condition of the farmer ? ' ' Out
of 100 farmers who have answered the
questions , seventy-one declare that it
does not pay , twenty-one say it does ,
four say it pays as well as anything
else , and four declare that they don 't
know whether it nays or not.
It is not safe to conclude that these
100 replies fairly represent the opinion
of all the farmers in the state , because
in such a small proportion of the total
number there may be more than tile
average of poor farmers , or possibly
less than the average. And even if
these 10 ! ) replies form a fair criterion
by which to judge the views of the
whole farming population , the conclu
sions reached would likely be mislead
ing. Probably a good per centage of
the 71 who say that farming doesn't
pay were giving opinions based on the
theory , and not on their own expe
rience. It is not unlikely that a good
many of these seventy-one farmers
have money in the bank or have paid
off all or a part of their indebtedness
during the past year , and are in fact
getting more out of their labor , and
the capital they have invested in farm
ing , than they could obtain from the
same amount of labor , the same capac
ity for management , and the same in
vestment in any other enterprise in
which they could engage.
It mar readily be believed that the
man possessing 1G0 acres of ground
who plants it all in corn or wheat , and
neglects to produce from his own land
the potatoes , the vegetables , the milk
and eggs which are required in his
household , cannot make farming piy ,
with wheat at 40 cents a bushel and
corn at l" cents , lint that kind of
farming never did pay. Tlie man who
raises wheat and corn on a large scale ,
and adopts methods of economizing
and of utilizing all the labor pays for ,
as the iron manufacturerand the sugar
refiner do , can make a reasonable profit
out of the business.
