OTHER POWERS ASTONISHED
The Poware of the World are Amazed
\ \ at the Rapid Development of the
United States Upon the Seas Will
be Second to But One.
[ From Monday's Dally. ]
"Walter Wollnmn in a Washington
special to the Record-Herald says :
Within four years the United States
navy will he the second most power
ful navy In the world , or at least so
near It that even the experts will
not he able to determine which navy
has the greatest actual effectiveness
that of the United States or of
Franco. Paper estimates of naval
strength are not an exact or mathe
matical science , and expert opinions
often differ. But it is apparent that
at the end of 1008 , when the building
programs now under way by the
great powers are finished , it will bo
-wholly a matter of guesswork as to
whether the United States or Franco
is entitled to the honor of standing
second in actual prowess upon the
seas In fighting tonnage and effec
Thus it Is seen that the American
debates , to make the United tSates
policy , publicly declared In senate
debates , to make the United States
navy rank next to that of Great Brl
tain , Is much nearer realization than
most people had supposed. In fact
the rise of the American navy In the
scale of relative strength , Its passing
first one navy then another In the
race until now it is a lively bidder
for second place , Is one of the most
marvelous developments of the gen
Twenty years ago the American
navy was almost zero ; It was a sub
ject of gibe and jest. Only six years
ago , when the Spanish-American war
amo on , it stood on paper sixth or
seventh among the world's navies.
Today It is the third , according to Senator -
ator Hale , chairman of the senate
committee on naval affairs , and four
years hence It will bo a competitor
for second place.
Senator Halo's speech on the naval
outlook and the remarks of Senator
Lodge and other senators last week
were cabled all over the world , and
attracted attention in every country
which makes any pretense to naval
power. The announcement that the
United States already regards her
self as the third naval power and that
she Intends to move up another notch
may not he permitted to He unchal
lenged by our rivals. In his speech
last Thursday Senator Hale gave In
formation concerning the growth and
future of our navy , which has aroused
great interest in the senate and
throughout the country. Not until
today were the facts and figures prepared -
pared by the chairman of the naval
committee available In detail , and
they are now being carefully studied
by many public men.

18S3 the United States has expended
more than three-quarters of a billion
of dollars upon Its naval establish

HORSES IN NORTHERN NEBRASKA
Kay Brothers Caused Interest In the
[ From Tuesday's Dally. ]
Madison , Neb. , March 15. Editor
News : The Item In your Saturday
Issue In reference to the location of
Kay brothers and Shade On , prompts
an inquiry and a statement Firsl
the public are anxious to know
whether the Kay brother thai was reported -
ported as brought homo before the
racing season had closed , in a pre
carious state of health , has recov
ered so as to be able to resume his
share of the training and driving
business at their prospective new
quarters at Ncligh ?
Second , the 2:01' : stallion I named
as open for a now location , at some
enterprising point , has been leased by
J. J. Strickler and Leo Jackson of
his old home town , for two years or
more. He Is Strathherry 2:01 : : , a
pacer by Roseberry 2:15 : , a trotter.
It Is further stated that his fee Is
$25 and that he took his record In
a winning heat , with the lines thrown
loose over his back and he at a jog ;
and had he been driven out for a rec
ord he would probably have been very
near the 2 minule mark. He would
mvo been a bonanza for a new com
munity at a rental of $500 a year , not
only for his Inherent and Inherited
speed , but because this speed was
backed up by such breeding In blood
I can now point any community
open to such oportunltlcs , to a chance
to secure at a very reasonable price
speed producing and richly bred sons
of George Wilkes , thlrtyelght In the
1st. This Is merely standing up for
Nebraska not for profit for me.
P. A. Clark.
[ It Is thought , In regard to the first
question , that the Kay brother who
was so ill has quite completely re
covered and will be able to take his
share of the training at Nellgh. A
reply , however , from Kay brothers
will settle the matter. ]

The pipe had boon jammed through
Ilio man's tongue by a liHlic blow that
was dealt by Joseph Dickey , agent
of the Nye , Schneider elevator com *
The trouble came up over sonu
stock which was running at largo. It
Is said that Morfiold called at the
elevator olllco to make his view o
the matter clear. Harsh words arose
between the two men. Then came
blows. Dickey smashed and the stem
of the cob pipe which Morlleld had
lu his mouth , was driven straight
through the tongue and stuck. No
amount of pulling would jerk II out.
The tiny tube was practically perma
nently pinned Into the bundle of
Morfleld , with the pipe clinging to
his wounded tongue , came to Hum
phrey and submitted to an operation
by Dr. Gadbois. The stem had to be
cut out small bits al a lime. Aflcr
the little chunks had all been taken
out , two big stitches were required
to sow up the awful opening lhalhad
been made In the Injured tongue.
Morfleld swore out a warrant for
the arrest of his assaulter. Accompa
nied by the constable , they relumed
to Cornlca , The officer of the law
talked the mailer over with the ele
vator agent and finally made peace
between the two men. They are now
on speaking terms , but Morfiold Isn't
able to do much of Iho speaking.
THE EXCUSES THAT ARE MADE
What Some Offer as Reasons for Not
[ From Tuesday's Dally. ]
Yesterday was a great day in the
special meetings. Intense interest
was evident in all Ihreo services.
The first invitation for those that de
sired to begin the Christian life to
como forward was made yesterday
afternoon and over a hundred young
men and young women responded.
Last evening thirty moro professed
faith In Christ.
The subject of the sermon lasl
night was "Excuses. " Mr. Lyon said
in part , "It Is one of the strangest
things that any human soul would
reject the help and salvation of Clod ,
Vet when the Invitation Is offered to
become citizens of the heavenly king
dom and heirs of God many begin to
make excuse. There Is great differ
ence between an excuse and a rea
son. A reason is a just cause for do
ing a thing. But an excuse Is a false
reason , it Is a humbug. It is some
thing given when we have no reason.
Many have excuses why Ihey reject

"One says , there are many things In
the Bible I cannel understand. Well ,

you do not understand keoy you from
accepllng the things you do under-
sland. You comprehend enough
about the scriptures lo know you are
a sinner and that you can bo saved
by forsaking your sins and receiving
Christ. The best way to gain moro
light Is by putting to use that you
"But , says another , Ihero are BO
many hypocrites In the church. Wha' '
are you going to do about it If there
are ? It will never help mailers to
stand off and criticize. Even In the
chosen band of apostles Ihere was
one Iraltor. But because Judas was
a hypocrite was that anything agalns
James and John and Iho rest ? Th
church has n right to have one hypo

" 'I four I could not 'hold out. ' You
have nothing lo hold out. . II Is not ,
how much Htrongth you have , It Is
hoin much power God has. You have
your llfo to live anyway , whether you
are a Christian or not. You have

It helps you bear the roHpoiiHllilllty

am I going to try lo wilvo my prob

This evening Mr. Lyon will speak
on "Tho Fnct of Sin. " Tomorrow at
I ! p. m. at. the Baptist church will bo

vangellHt will speak on "The Story
of a Great Revival. "

The fact thai Iho dopol IH to remain
whore It now stands for the present ,
at least , will no doubt have Its offocl
upon the strool car system which has
boon for a long time planned between
Norfolk and the Northwestern ter
minal al South Norfolk. Everything
Is now In roadlnoHs for the construc

II Is a wonder lo a groal many people
ple who vlsll Norfolk , that no Htreel
car line haH boon built. There are
porhapH moro IrariHlonlH In Iho city
of Norfolk , going acroHH the town ,
every day of the year , than In any
other city of Nebraska except Lincoln
iiml Omaha. There are rnilroailH from
live distinct directions , each termi
nating a division hero , and each pourIng -
Ing n gorat number of travelers Into
the city every day that goes by. The
number Is not to bo measured by the
hundreds a week , but by the many
AH It now HtaiulH , there are three
separate stations for railroads In Nor
folk. One of Ibonr Is a union station
Into which run the trains of two dis
tinct companies. The Northwestern
main Hue station Is between one and
two mlloH from olthor of the other
two. It Is nn Impossible distance for
pedestrians. Tbo trip can not bo
travel-sod on foot. Whoever makes
H must ride. To ride , today , costs
hack fare a quarter of a dollar.
With a strool car service , Iho hun
dreds of people who como off every
train that outers the city , could bo
very much moro rapidly than at pres
ent , and for one-fifth the cost bo
transported up town. The fact thai
the big railroad platforms Hwarm
with people almost Instantly after
every train has stopped , Is enough
of an Indication that the cars mak
ing the run would bo crowded to the
Welcomed by Hotels.
A streel car line would b'o wel
comed by the hotels. It would bo
welcomed by Ihe patrons of the heels -
els even more. A palron of Iho heel -
el now gels a ride for 15 cenls , where

Whllo the hotels are no longer payIng -
Ing this fare , as previously , the ex

by the traveling public , whore they
might as well pay one-fifth of the

Fred Harvey , Cousin of the Girl ,
is in Jail.
GIVES STARTLING CONFESSION
The Girl Has Confessed to the Sher
iff that She Bound and Gagged Her
self In Order to Conceal Her Shame.
Peculiar End to Affair.
( From TucHdny'H Pnlly.l
Scrlbnor , Noli. . March 15. Fred
Harvey , a cousin of Eva Rich , wan
arrested hero yesterday afternoon and
taken to the county jail at Fremont
to face a statutory charge.
Before Harvey's arrest , the girl
gave a startling confession. She said
that the story of her outrage was
wholly Imaginary and that she had
faked It to hide her own shamo. She
has bean Intimate , It secniB , with Fred
Harroy , her cousin. Her parents ob
jected to a marriage. In order to
cover her own disgrace , she had em
ployed this trick. She was not bound
and gagged at all , she said. She ad
mitted that she had bound and gagged
herself In the manner In which she
wan found. Her narents are willing
that the two should marry now.
The community Is Indignant co have
been Imposed upon. The parents are
heartbroken. Today the girl denli-s
her confession and Harvey , who also
told the same story , Is In jail. ,
One of the motives Is said to bo
that Harvey has been paying atten
tion to another woman and that It
was to draw his sympathy that the
Irl thus deceived the public. He has
been very closely attentive since the
night of the alleged outrage.
