NEW YORK , Oct. 18. The topmast
of the cup challenger Shamrock was
carried away twenty-rtvo minutes
after the big single sticker had crossed
the starting line today and its enor
mous clubBall , with its 3,000 feet of
canvas , came rattling down on the
deck , leaving it a helpless cripple. No
amount of pluck or courage could face
such a catastrophe and Shamrock
abandoned the race , towing back to

Columbia continued over the course
alone , placing to its credit the second
of the races for the America's cup. The
accident to Shamrock ruined the race
and caused the keenest regret among
the yachtsmen and the thousands of

It is unfortunate that the defender
should have been the beneficiary of an
accident , as there is little glory in
beating a cripple , but the rule is iron
clad. If crippled before the start time
is allowed for repairs , but once over
the line , if anything carries away , the
sufferer must make such repairs as he
can , or if rendered hors de combat , as
Shamrock was today , he must take the
consequences. There are good sense
and logic behind the rule. The races
are a test of construction as well as
design and seamanship. Doubtless , if
Mr. Iselin could have had his choice
in the matter , he generously would
have declined to continue in view of
the crippled condition of his rival , but
the rules gave him no alternative. He
was in duty bound to go on , and as he
finished well within the time limit the
race was his.

thedral was crowded with a notable
audience assembled to witness the

BROWNVILLE , Neb. , Oct. 22. The
odore Checsman of Falrport , Mo. , to
whose efforts Is due the capture of-
George Ray , the slayer of Frank CheeB-
man , Theodore's brother , was In town
and told of his successful search for
the murderer. Theodore Cheesman
said at the deathbed of his brother
that he would capture Ray or spend
a life time in the attempt , and natur
ally he was well pleased over the out
come of his efforts.

Cheesman , Frank's widow , and Ray's
paramour. After Cheesman's funeral

where sne remained a short time , and
then went to Victor , Colo. , and after
ward to Cripple Creek , Colo. , where ,

himself in the fickle affections of the
woman , and in a moment of confidence
she showed him a letter from Ray ,
signed "J. P. Keegan , " the name as
sumed by Ray. The letter was written
from Illinois , but when the detective
searched there he had left. "J. P.
Keegan" was traced to northwest Iowa
and arrested. He readily acknowledged
his identity and agreed to return to
Nebraska without a requisition from
the governor. The f/aling against Kay
is bitter in this community , as Cnees-
man was a good citizen , respected .by
all , and pitied by many for his infatu
ation for his faithless wife.

LINCOLN , Neb. , Oct. 19. The su

injunction restraining the board or
transportation from proceeding with
the hearing of the complaint of John
0. Yelser against the Nebraska Tele
phone company. The application was
made for the Injunction by W. W.
Morsmau , attorney for the telephone
In the petition filed by Attorney
Morsman he sets out the history of the
case. The complaint against the tel
ephone rates was filed by Yolser with
the board of secretaries of the board
of transportation. The board proceed
ed under the act of 1897 , which gave
it authority to fix and regulate rates
of telepragh and telephone companies
as well as of express companies. The
telephone company went into the
courts with Its contention in opposi
tion to this position of the board , and
also set up the unconstitutlonality ot
the act creating the board. This case
went through the district court , It
having ben brought up by the com
pany. This decision of the supreme
court was against the telephone com
Soon after the supreme court deci

went into court at first it asked for
an injunction to restrain the board
from attempting to interfere with its
rates and management.
Nebraska Stockmen Iluyliifj Sheep.
SOUTH OMAHA , Oct. 19. The Den
ver Stockman has this to say of sheep
feeding conditions in Nebraska : "Tho
big Nebraska feeders are getting down
to business. They have concluded that
prices on southern lambs are not too
high when the cheap corn is consid
ered. They are going after the lambs
now and buying them by train loads.
Another conclusion has been reached ,
and which is in the main responsible
for the heavy buying going on now ,
not only in the south , but in the west
as well. The beef supply available next
spring does not figure out as going
to be as great aa the demand , consequently
quently there is a great likelihood that
beef will be high. To counteract this
high market and to supply such con
sumers as will not find themselves
able to buy the high-priced beef ail
the time there is a strong possibility
that much mutton will be consumed ,
and these sheep buyers are getting
ready for such demand.
"The latest purclfase of forty car
loads of New Mexico lambs and yearl
ing wethers by a big Nebraska feeder
at a cost of § 2.30 per head at point of
loading is a price that cannot help but
render a handsome profit when mar
keting time conies. "

COLUMBUS , Neb. , Oct. 19. It is
now ten days since John Tannehill left'
this'city to avoid arrest on the charge
of forging notes to the amount of
over § 1,600. Not the slightest trace
of him has been found , which has leu
to all sorts of rumors concerning his
whereabouts. All of them , however ,
are supported by no facts , and where
Tannehill is remains as deep a mystery
One rumor has him in Mexico ; an
other , en route to the Philippines ; a
third , that he has taken his own life ;
and some believe he has fled to Kansas.
It was at first thought that Tanne-
hiU's property would aggregate a suf
ficient amount to liquidate tne forged
paper. Developments indicate that it
will by no means do this. If his wife
exercises the right of the § 20,000
