all necessary safeguards that the city
would become a station on the pro

of the citizens condemn the action of
the council as the road if it continues
on the proposed line will pass about
three miles east of that city.

throat. Thornton has been conducting
himself in a peculiar manner for sev
eral months past and has been under
the constant watch of members of his
family. At this time , however , he
eluded their care by escaping from his
room early in the morning hours and
inflicting a death wound with a butch
er knife. It Is believed that his mind
was unbalanced by religious subjects ,
in which he took a deep interest.

QUARTETTE Of BRAVE SOLDIERS
One Dies on the Field of Battle and An

slon In the Kcgular Army. A Consolatory
latory Letter From Secretary Melkcl-
Washington special to the Omaha
Bee : The history of the Spanish-
American war , when made up by future
historians , will contain many deeds
of heroism , often unequaled and sel
dom excelled. Many valiant acts , nov >
almost unheeded in the rush of stirring
events , will in calmer hours be tolc
with the wing of romance now un-
dreampt of. Great , however , as has
been the courage of the soldiers in
camp and field , all need of praise is nol
due to them alone. To the families of
these brave men , serving their countrj
in its hour of meed , must also be ac
corded full measure of commendation
for the superb self-contained fortitude
with which they have borne the losses
of their loved ones , as well as the
minor deprivations of their society and
Among the homes where the spirit
of patriotism found a rich harvest was
that of Peter Storch , an honored citi
zen of Fullerton , Neb. When the call
for volunteers came four sons of Peter
Storch went forward and enlisted in

infantry. One of these four brothers ,
Joseph A. Storch , was commissioned

The history of the First Nebraska
volunteers is too well known to the
peopb of Nebraska to need extended
comment upon its gallantry and dearly
purchased triumphs. The glorious
record of this regiment from the mo
ment of its entrance upon the field of
active military operations in the Phil
ippines to the day of its relief from
further duty and return to Manila is
but typical of the individual records of
When the regiment departed from
San Francisco-about a year ago , a
practically raw and undisciplined body
of men , few could have predicted the
deeds of daring which it has accom
plished. Where all have displayed
such gallantry individual instances of
conspicuous heroism are as difficult to
be performed as they are to be noted.
Eacii and every man therefore may
be regarded , if not a hero , at least a
brave and courageous soldier in the
No testimony need therefore be of
fered that the Storch volunteers have
faithfully served their government to
the full measure of their duty. That
they have been tried in the fiery ordeal
and not found wanting is shown by
the fact that one of them has already
sacrificed his life for his country. At
Quingua , on April 23 , 1899 , a date
which will long be remembered with
sadness as the occasion upon which
the First Nebraska voluntee'-s lost
their gallant commanding officer , Colonel
nel John M. Stotsenberg , another brave
man was killed. Quartermaster Ser
geant Storch , in the heat of the con
flict and disregarding the personal
safety assured him by his office , was
bravely found among his comrades
grimly facing insurgent bullets. His
gallantry added another name to the
roll of our country's cherished dead.
Upon receipt at the war department
of the sad news Assistant Secretary of
War Meikeljohn briefly notified Mr.
Storch , by wire , of his bereavement
and extended to him and his family
deepest sympathy and condolence in
their sad affliction. The assistant sec
retary also , upon the same date , adr
Pressed the following letter of condl ?
lence to Mr. Storch :
My Dear Sir : The sad intelligence
that your son , Quartermaster Sergeant
I. F. Storch , has been killed in battle
was received by me with deep sorrow
ind regret , both personal and official.
I knew him as a young man of high
character , marked ability and great
promise. That he slrould have met the
doom of mankind at the very portals
3 * manhood occasions grief to all who
knew him. But that he met death in
the line of duty , was killed in battle
inder the flag we all love , fighting for
iis country and participating in a gal
lant charge which drove the enemy
from strong entrenchments , will mol
lify , though it will not assuage , the
grief you now endure. His life was
: ommendable , his future full of prom
ise , but his death was glorious. He
las secured the highest honor a soldier
: an attain , and his name will be in
scribed in the book of lame , whose
? ages will ever be read through tears.
To your boy's mother my heart goes
jut in sympathy. Neither glory , honor ,
nor fame can take the place of such
i son with her. I can but hope that
3od will give her strength to say , as
lid the ancient Hebrew mother , suffer
ing under a similar affliction , "It is
ivell with the child. "
To you and your entire family I
ixtend my deepest sympathy. I wish"

WAR TROPHY FOR NEBRASKA.
The Governor to Ask for a Cannon froii
Governor Poynter has directed Ad
jutant General Barry to apply to the
war department for one of the Span
ish cannon captured at Manila. The
state of Nebras'ia is entitled to two
guns. The allotment is supposed to
come from Santiago and one gun from
that place has already been credited to
Nebraska. Congressman Dave Mercer
has secured a gun for Omaha and this
is the one supposed to have been cred
ited to the state. The war department
has informed the governor that one
gun is still due the state and gives the
choice of guns taken from Manila or
from Santiago. General Barry will
apply for one taken at Manila because
Nebraska troops have made such a
good record there that the people ol
the state naturally take more interesl
in the Philippines than in the Santia
go campaign. Postmaster H. M. Bush-
nell of this city was recently in Wash
ington and practically secured one gun
for the university campus , but noth
ing has been heard about the matter
since Mh. Bushnell returned. The let
ter received by the governor is as fol
War Department , Office of the Sec
retary , Washington , June 5 , 1899.
Dear Sir : The secretary of war directs
me to say that it has been decided to
loan to the several states certain of
the condemned and obsolete ordnance
captured in and about Santiago in the
war with Spain , and in this allotment
two guns will be assigned to your
state to be loaned to such soldiers'
monuments associations , posts of the
Grand Army of the Republic , or muni
cipal corporations as you may desig
nate. There is no provision of law
by which the government can bear any
part of the expense in connection with
any such loan. The state or the monument
ment associations , posts of the Grand
Army of the Republic , or the munici
pal corporations must bear all the ex
pense in connection with the transpor
tation of the guns from where they are
no'w located. The guns will be for-
wirded in most cases from the Wa-
tervliei ; arsenal , near Troy , N. Y. , or
from the New York arsena' , at Gov
ernor's island , N. Y. There are no
mounts or carriages , simply the bare
If it is your wish that your state re
ceive the guns allotted , will you kind
ly designate the names of the mon
ument associations , G. A. R. posts or
municipalities which you desire to re
As a matter of information to you ,
the following cities or towns in your
state have made application for Span
ish guns as trophies : Lincoln , Have-
lock , and the Nebraska and Kansas
In this connection I am informed
by the navy department that your
state has already received from the
navy one of the captured Spanish
guns. I enclose you herewith copy of
the law under which this distribution
is made. Should it be your wish in
stead of receiving one of the Santiago
guns to receive one taken in the Phil
ippines , it is possible that in the fu
ture some of the guns captured there
may be brought to the United States.
If so , the secretary of war directs
me to state that any request received
from you for one of those guns will
receive very careful consideration , as
he has no doubt that as the troops of
your state served so gallantly in the
Philippines they would prefer as a tro
phy one of the guns taken there.
By direction of the secretary of war ,
will you kindly address your reply to
me. Very respectfully ,

Reception to Soldiers.
Lincoln dispatch : A well organized
movement has been started by a num
ber of prominent citizens of Lincoln
to tender the members of the First
regiment a rousing reception in this
: ity soon after their return from Ma
nila. The intention of those who have
undertaken to carry out the plan is
to bring to this city , if possible , all
members of the three regiments of
Nebraska volunteers who are in the
state at the time. Colonel Vifquain
ind other officers of the Second and
rhird regiments have signified their
ivilllngness to co-operate with the citi
zens who have perfected an organiza
tion and will at once proceed to ar
range for the reception. An executive
jommittee has been appointed to for
mulate plans for the occasion and to
see that they are carried out. It is
; he opinion of those who originated the
novement that it will be possible to
jring together such a large number of
reterans of the different wars as to
nake the occasion without doubt one
) f the greatest in the history of the
state and it is anticipated that nearly
20,000 men may be brought into line
tor the event. All patriotic orders in
; he state will be asked to co-operate ,
rhe name of the organization having
: harge of the reception is one sug

On account of the uncertainty as to
vhen the First regiment will sail from
Manila no date has been fixed for the
lemonstration. It is believed that the
egiment will embark within the next
wo weeks and the committee has made
illowance for a stay of about a month
n San Francisco while the men are
> eing mustered out. As all the soldiers
vill doubtless desire to first visit their
riends and relatives the reception will

3olonel Vifquain has addressed letters
o the captains of the different com-
lanies of the Third regiment to notify
heir men of the reception and en-
leaver to have as many as possible
ittend. The state military authorities
lave already taken steps toward giving
he soldiers from Manila a reception

ented to co-operate with the citizens.
Nebraska Boys Promoted.
Lieutenant P. James Cosgrave of
Jncoln , says the Lincoln Journal , first

Much Confusion Attends the "Work of
Paying Cuban Soldiers.
GOOD ORDER ON THE ISLAND.
General Brooke Pays the Natives a Com
pliment Brigandage Not Known In
the Ordinary Acceptance of the Term
and the JU w Is Generally Upheld.
HAVANA , June 19. The greatest
confusion exists in the lists of Cu
ban soldiers at Canajuani. Many of
them cannot collect their $75 , as they
appear on the rolls as having been
promoted to the ranks of officers , of
which fact they had no knowledge
previously. The Remedies regiment
contains apparently over 2,000 men ,
while the lists only give the names of
700. Soldiers who have fought since
1895 are not shown on the lists , while
boys who served as camp followers
are able to secure payment. A peti
tion has been sent to Governor Gen
eral Brooke asking him to order a re
vision of the list.
With reference to the report of bri
gandage , of thieving , and murders
freely circulated , Governor General
Brooke says that brigandage , in the
American acceptance of the term , does
not exist in Cuba. As for other deeds
of violence he thinks it extraordinary ,
considering the war had devastated
the island from end to und , that hard
ly a Cuban family has not suffered
hardship or something worse , and that
multitudes have been on the verge of
starvation , that crimes ot theft and
bloodshed have been so few. General
Brooks believes the percentage of
crime among the Cubans today is pro
bably less than among any other people
ple in the world where conditions have
been so gravely disturbed.
The governor general has ordered a
number of much needed changes In
the administration of justice. Here
tofore the principal court in the va
rious provinces , known as the auden-
cia , has had jurisdiction of criminal
cases. Under the new arrangement
the audiencia of each province will
have Jurisdiction in both civil and in
criminal matters , with a right of ap
peal to parties , to the supreme court.
Other reforms are now under consid
eration , particularly changed in the
courts of first instance , where the laws
now in force do not allow the judges
such power as they have been invested
Dr. Brunner , chief sanitary officer
in Havana province , will probably re
sign his position this month , the city
of Havana having offered him a tempt
ing salary to take charge of sanitary
affairs here. The general opin
ion here is that eveiy effort should be
made to retain his services. He under
stands the local situations and the Cu
bans thoroughly. The keen sense of
duty is recognized to the public as
especially serviceable in the commun
ity , where there are so many attempts
to evade the sanitary regulations.
Regarding the recent death of a
United States marine from yellow fe
ver , Major General Ludlow , the mili
tary governor , says that isolated cases
are bound to occur occasionally , but
he thinks it impossible that any infec
tious disease should occur without
word being received by tne sanitary
department within a few hours.
According to advices from Guana-
jay , province of Pinar del Rio , the in
surgents , after receiving their money ,
start for home , many of them on foot.
One man was found murdered near
Chicharron. Three were found near
Quibrohacha. All had been robbed.
Armed bodies of Cubans continue to
arrive here in large numbers , claim
ing that only within the last few days
had they learned that money was
awaiting them. Most of them have
readily accepted the proposal of Gen
eral Brooke that they should turn half
their arms over to the civil gover
nor , and receive ten days' rations ,
which will enable them to live until
Lieutenant Colonel Randall returns to
Havana and recommences payment
General Gomez expresses his will
ingness to aid the governor in arrang
ing the lists. General Brooke is in
clined to appoint a commission of Cu
ban officers , whose integrity would be
guaranteed by Gomez.
Sales of Union Pacific Linds.
OMAHA , June 19. During May the
Union Pacific land department sold
113,691 acres of land in Nebraska , Colorado
rado , Wyoming and Utah and 6,859
acres in Kansas. Since the first of the
year 62,842 acres have been sold in the
latter state. C. E. Wantland , special
agent for the department , who has
charge of most of the sales in the west ,
says they will average about 100,000
acres a month during the year , making
: he total for the year 1,000,000 acres.
The greater portion of the land is be
ing sold to stockmen and this industry
never had such a boom in the west as
t is having now. Farmers everywhere
n that section seem to be giving up
a large portion of their agricultural
operations and devoting more time to
raising cattle and sheep.
Mrs. Stanford's Generous Gift.
SAN FRANCISCO , June 19. Before
eaving for Europe Mrs. Stanford pre
pared two deeds which were placed ion
record today conveying valuable real
estate to Stanford university. The
property consists of 1,700 acres in Las-
sen county and 160 acres in Tehema
county , which are to be transferred to
the vineyards now owned by the uni
versity. All this is in addition to her
recent endowment of over $11,000,000.
3y this latest gift Mrs. Stanford has
transferred all her realty to the uni
versity save a house and lot in Sacra
mento , the residence of the senator
and his family in early days.
Celebrate Banker Hill Day.
BOSTON , June 19. The one hundred
and twenty-third anniversary of the
jattle of Bunker Hill was celebrated

ROBBERS TURN BACK SOUTH.

Sullivan's Sin-op ICanch.
CASPER , Wyo. , Juno 19. Eight ot
the posse hunting the Union Pacific
train robbers in the Hole-in-the-Wall
country returned to Casper today.
The robbers have left the Hole-in-the-
Wall mountains and are traveling
back south. The last heard of them
was at Powder river , coming south.
They seemed to be heading toward
Wolton. A large party is following
them now. Today guards were placed
art all the bridges across the Platte
river and new men with fresh horses
started for the Wolton country. The
pursuing party at Sullivan's aheep
camp , where the robbers ate breakfast
and took a pack horse and bed , were
twelve hours behind. The robbers
are traveling in a very broken country ,
with numerous washouts and a model
place to hide. At Sullivan's camp only
two robbers put in an appearance.
CHEYENNE , Wyo. , June 19. Cour
iers who arrived yesterday from the
pursuit ofthe Union Pacific train rob
bers report that the fugitives are now
several days in advance of the pursu
ing posse. The robbers were supplied
by a rustler friend near E. K | moun
tain , in the Hole-in-the-Wall country ,
with fine riding horses and two pack
animals , plenty of food and a camp
outfit. They were last seen starting
across the main range of the Big
Horn mountains , evidently making
for the Jackson's Hole county , an ad
mirable hiding place south of the
Yellowstone National park. Their
trails were lost on account of snow
storms on the mountains. The course
of the robbers , it is believed , will be
across the Shoshone Indian reserva
tion and the Indian police are out
guarding the mountain passes.
Posses of Idaho and Montana of
ficers have been started toward the
Jackson's Hole county to co-operate
with the Wyoming officers , who , under
the direction of United States Mar
shall Hadsell , are still following the
trail across central Wyoming. The au
thorities and Union Pacific - management
ment are determined to catch the rob
bers and the chase will be continued
until they are run down.

CLEVELAND , O. , June 19. BIaz
Patrie , a railroad section hand , proved
himself a hero today and was fatally
injured in an attempt to save a woman
from death. Mrs. Jennie Price , who
lived on Webster street , was riding a
wheel across the Lake Shore tracks at
the entrance to Gordon park , and fell
in front of an approaching train. Pat
rie , who had been detailed to assist
the flagman at the crossing , ran to
Mrs. Price's assistance , but both he
and the woman were run down. Mrs-
Price lost a leg and an arm and suff
ered a fracture of the skull , while her
rescurer was struck by the pilot of the
2ngine and was picked up insensible
from a bad wound in the head. The
