NEWS-DEMO OR AT.Si VOLUME XIV. VALENTINE , NEBRASKA , MARCH 16 , 1899. NUMBER S. THE WORLD OVER LATEST NEWS FROM EVERY LAN'D. IMPEACH GEN. GOMEZ CUBAN ASSEMBLY REPUDIATES ITS LEADER. The General Is Not Disturbed by the Opera BouflTe Performance Declares He Enjoys It All Allan Steamer Goes Ashore in Fog Gen. Gomez Turned Out. The Cuban Military Assembly in public session last Saturday impeached Gen. Maximo Gomez and removed him from his command as general in chief of the Cuban army , the lirst ballot taken resulting in twenty-six votes being cast in support of the motion to impeach and remove Gen. Gomez , against four in opposition. Gen. Gomez's only supporters were Gen. Cespedes and Gen. Xune/ . The original motion , which was introduced by Senor Manuel Sanguilly , provided for the aboli tion of the grade of general-in-chief , but an amendment was offered to this by Senor Aguerro , which read : "To abolish the grade of general-in-chief and to remove Gen. Gome/ for failure in his military duties and disobedience to the Assembly. " The position of the Assembly is notably weak , as the military administration sup ports Gen. Gomez , as do all the planters and property owning element , who r.re tired of the Cuban army , which subsists half upon charity and half upjn contribu tions levied by means of threats. Gen. Gomez received at Molinas a tele phone message announcing to him the As sembly's de.-ision. He answered calmly , 'All right. I enjoy the situation. " CASTILIAN GOES ASHORE.

Engines were reversed , but when it was found the steamer held fast the boats were got ready and the sleeping passengers awakened and told to pack up in case it should be necessary to send them ashore. Splendid coolness was lisplayeJ by the whole crew. Rockets were iired at intervals and at daylight the irst officer and purser went ashore in a small boat to Tusket. They drove nine miles to Yarmouth for assistance. In the afternoon the boats were launched and the passengers and crew told off to them.

Fire "Wall Crashes Down on an Ad joining : Building in Chicago. The massive fire wall on the east of the ? ight story structure which was partly de stroyed by fire in Chicago Saturday night , fell without warning Sunday , completely demolishing the adjoining building and setting the ruins on fire. The loss on build ing and contents is estimated at $123,000 , fully insured. So sudden was the col lapse of the lire wall that a score of firemen barely escaped being caught under the mass of masonry. The loss by fire will probably be much heavier than at first i-hought. Losses which were believed to be only partial were found Sunday in some 2ascs to be complete , and it is now esti mated the total loss will approximate F300COO. FIRE CAUSES A PANIC. Siv-Story New York Tenement Burns 3Iany Narrow Escapes. A six-story tenement at 4 Cayard street , New York , caught fire early Sunday morn ing. Twenty families were aroused from their slumber. The tenement burned like tinder and a number of people were forced to drop from the windows into nets. Sev- sral little children were thrown from the windows and were caught by firemen be low , all escaping uninjured. Fifteen per sons were carried from the upper floors. The panic was intense. Chief Bouner said that there were no bodies in the build- Horrible English Tragedy. A gravestone mason , living at Twickeu- heini , England , caused a sensation by cut ting the throats of his wife and two child ren and then cutting his own. All four t- are dead. The only motive for the crime was that the man was a fanatical vegeter- ian and had been ordered by his physician to eat meat. Loses Life in the Flames. The Marysville , Cal. , woolen mill was damaged 3150,000 by fire Sunday night. During the progress of the fire Frank Peck of Yuba City , a well known bicycle rider , entered the building and was over come by the smoke and burned to death. WOULD WEAR THE LAUREL. Alleged Gen. Gamcz Is Anxious to Be Cuba's First President. A Havana dispatch says : There ap pears to be little doubt that the influence and popularity of Gen. Gomez will be suffi cient to compel the Assembly of Cuban rep- resentativco to formally ratify his accept ance from the United States of $8,000,000 to disband the army. A member of the As sembly , who is also in Gomez' confidence , makes a statement which , though extraordinary , he pledges to be entirely accurate. He says that the understanding on which Gomez accepted the $3,000,000 was that when this sum was accepted the United States would advance a further $10,000,000 to the Cuban army. This was a secret clause in the arrangement made with the Cuban chief and has not been divulged to members of the assembly save those personally friendly to Gomez. One further understanding arrived at Avith the American commander was in ref erence to Gomez's own personal ambition. With the death of Garcia and Maceo , the figure of the commander-in-chief is the sole strong one in Cuban pol itics. He has no intention to disclaim political honors. His ambition is to be come the first president of a Cuban re public , and his confidant alleges that the United States has pledged herself to favor and aid this ambition. The administration has determined , clearly and decisively , to get out of Cuba as early as possible , and with Gomez , they believe , matters will soon be adjusted to this end. Gomez is popular with the country , but not with the As sembly or army. WOMAN HUNG IN QUEBEC. Herself and Lover Executed for Killing the Former's Husband. Mrs. Cordelia Poirier and Samuel Pars- low , her lover , were hanged at St. Seholas- tique , Que. , March 10 , for the murder of Isidore Poirier , the woman's husband.

Pars- low and Mrs. Poirier confessed the crime and endeavored to put the responsibility 011 the other. Their necks were both broken. Mrs. Poirier was firm and collected throughout. On the scaffold she shook hands with the liangman without a tremor. A. crowd oE Gib people inside the jail jeered at lifer , but her composure did not desert her , and. at the suggestion of the executioner , she turned and faced her jeerers , stood erect and prayed to the last. Parslow was more dead than alive when the drop fell. The condemned murderers were proven ted from seeing each other by a screen placed be tween them. BRYAN SCORES TRUSTS. Silver Champion Talks to a Big Crowd at Houston , Texas. Hon. William Jennings Bryan addressed 0,000 persons at Houston , Texas , last week.

Accordingly real estate here is in growing demand and prices are on the in crease. NEBRASKA CONGRESS DAILY REPORT OF WHAT IS BEING - ING DONE.
