THE NORFOLK NKWSf I'KIDAY , MA Y (5 ( , 190 ! KINKAID BILL OPENS MILLION ACRES IN NORTHWEST. SIXTY DAYS AFTER APRIL 28. President Will Issue His Rosebud Proclamation Within Week or Ten Days , so that Entry May be Made on First of July , This Year. 'Washington , D. C. , Mny 4. Nine million acres of land In northwestern Nebraska will ho taken up by settlers tlors as a result of the Klnkald hill , which President lUxiscvclt signed on the last day of congress. Although the measure nffects no state hut Ne braska , It Is of a special importance to that stnto , and will result in a marked Increase in the population of the land In northwestern Nebraska , and In the assessed valuation of prop- tray. tray.The The measure provides that CIO acres , or one section of land , may betaken taken updor the homestead laws. As the land In northwestern Nebraska is suitable chiefly for grazing purposes , It was impossible for a settler to make n living on one-fourth section. With C40 acres at his disposal , a homestead er can keep enough cattle or sheep on his own land to make it worth while for him to take land in that part of the state. Sixty days after April 28 , the No- hraska land will ho opened for settle ment , under the provisions of the now law , and it Is believed hy Congress man Klnkaid , that all the government land In Nebraska will ho entered un der the now act before next fall. Nehraska lands which are capable of Irrigation may bo set asUlo hy the secretary of the interior , under the reclamation net , and as most of the lr- rlgahlo land has already been taken up the now law will apply to grazing land only. The Rosehud country containing 410,000 acres in South Dakota , which will be opened under the Burke act , just passed , is immediately north of Nebraska land , which Is to ho opened , and a great rush of settlers is ex pected into the two states within the next six months. The president will Issue his proclamation , opening the Rosebud country within a week or ten days , so that the land may he en tered on or about July 1. McAII Mission Body Meets.

NAME DELEGATES AND TICKET Gubernatorial Campaign .Has Been Spirited and Indications are that Crawford Will be the Nominee. Iowa Democrats at Des Molncs. Sioux Kails , S. D. , Mny 4. The ro- uibllcan state convention to cheese eight delegates at largo to the na tional convention at Chicago , and to lomlnnto two candidates for congress , candidates for the judiciary and n full state ticket , met nt noon today in his city. Frank Crane , chairman of he state committee , called the con vention to order , and Introduced the temporary chairman. The opening iddrcsses criticised the democratic stnto and national leaders , and de clared that If the republicans do their luty as they did In 1000 , there can bo jut one result , the triumphant re election of President Roosevelt. At .ho conclusion of the opening speech es , committees on resolutions and icrmanent organization 'were appoint ed , and a recess taken to permit the committees to draw up their reports. The report of the committee on res olutions will vigorously commend the whole course of the Roosevelt admin- stratlon and strongly indorse the president for renominatlon. The campaign for the gubernato rial nomination to bo made hy today's convention has been one of the most spirited In the political history of South Dakota. The Indications are that Coo I. Crawford , the antl-machlno candidate , has more than enough lelegates pledged for him to assure ils nomination. The selection of Crawford will break up the machine rule which has prevailed hero for six years. Minnesota Republicans. St. Paul , Minn. , May 4.

Waterloo , la. , May 4. The Third district republican congressional con vention met here today and renoml- nated Congressman Birdsall , who was without opposition , A Mutter of Opinion. Time was and thin , too , in modern ages when no one was considered n scholar unless he could discourse In Greek , and In one age of the world red eyes were in the highest type of beau ty.

As seen by dlCferont persons , the slr.o of the moon varies from that of a cart wheel to a silver dollar. To many It seems about n foot In diameter , from which Professor Young eont'ludcH thai to the average man the distance of the surface of the nky Is about 110 foot.

' FOUR COUNTS AGAINST DANKER OF SHELDON , IOWA. ALSO RAILROAD COMMISSIONER Accused on Four True Dills for Crook- * ednesB In His Danklng Methods , the O'Brien County Jury Drlngs In Its Indictments. Sheldon , la. , May 4. The O'Hrlen county grand Jury has voted four In- HctmontB against Kil C. Brown , chair- mm of the Iowa railroad commission and president of the failed Sheldon Stnto hank of this place , for alleged rregularltlcs In connection with the innk's affairs. They are understood o Include one and possibly two , for 'inhe//.lement , one for declaring a llvldond when ( ho bank waa Insol ent , and at least one for receiving leposlts after Insolvency. The In- llctments have not yet been report ed. Mr. Hrown was waiting to he called , hut was not called , the Indict- iioiitH being based on records. The largest embo//.lement charged s based on a loan of $71,00 ! ( > to .1. W. 'Ix & Co. , a firm of which Hurl Hi-own , cashier and son of President Mrown , vas a member. Hurl Brown signed ho linn's name of Fix .t Co. , to the lotes , the loan being made without authorization of the directors , which s contrary to statute In case of an > lllcer of the bank. H Is charged , In mother Indictment , that April 1H , ! )0n ) , the hank declared a dividend of learly $1,000 , being then Insolvent , n another Brown IB charged with laving borrowed $ d,000 from a Chicago cage bank on his personal note and ater writing the Chicago bank to charge It against the Sheldon bank , vhich is alleged to constitute cm- lez/lement. There are several spe cific charges of receiving deposits after the bank was Insolvent. The mnk originally had $100,00. . ) capital , nit in 1895 was reorganized , the cap- tal being cut to $50,000. H is charged with carrying over $78,0(10 ( of practically worthless paper o the new organization , and there fore , being Insolvent from the hegln- ilng of the now organization. 13,1 C. Brown loft Sheldon after it vas given out that the indictments md been voted to attend the congres sional convention at Cherokee. On the train ho told friends that In view > f his Indictment ho should not fur ther attempt to stand as candidate for renominatlon as railroad commis sioner , his term expiring this year. I'ho hank Is expected to pay 40 to GO cents on the dollar. An effort will ho made to hold the irlglnal $100,000 of stock for 100 per cent assessments on the ground that ho bank was Insolvent when they or ganized and retired , and therefore they could not escape liability , mere- y reorganizing. Under the reorganization the $50- 000 of stock was chiefly held In Du- juque , but was later bought hy the Browns. Under the purchase It con tinued to be hold hy the Dubunuo people ple as collateral security , the Browns : o pay for It In installments. The Duhuque men retained the right to vote it. Creditors Insist that this was equivalent to continued ownership by the Dubuque Interests , therefore that an assessment against them will hold good. If these two assessment con tentions are made good at law a large share of the liabilities will bo paid , as the eastern Iowa people are weal thy. An Orfrntal Sherlock A book on India tells of a native de tective whose methods were anything but scrupulous. One important matter Investigated was a robbery of about half a lakh of rupees' worth of silver Ingots ( about ? 2o,000) ) that was sent down on camels with an escort of llf- tccn armed men from Indore to Kotnh. The escort was killed by Dacolts nnd the silver taken. Isrl Pershnd , the ori ental Sherlock Holmes , rasseldar major of a native regiment , made It his busi ness to bring these men to justice nnd when asked In after years how he ob tained hl proofs remarked , smilingly stroking his beard , that If a man was judiciously strung up , spread eagle wise , by his thumbs , much useful In formation mlghf bo extracted , nnd , having no marks of 111 treatment to show to the sahibs , he generally held his tongue. Of a certain witness In thla case ho wrote that ho had "given 'awfully good evidence' nt the trial , but ns there was 'just a little discrepancy' between this and his previous deposi tions before the political agent , when the original files were called for by the higher court , 'It would be better to omit this one nnd say It had been eaten by white ants.
