    THE NORFOLK NKWSf I'KIDAY , MA Y (5 ( , 190 !
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-
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.

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
Minnesota Republicans.

other arrangements for the state con
vention which is to nominate candi

officers to be voted for this fall. Doth
Duluth and St. Paul had delegations
on hand to bid for the convention ,
which will probably be held the last
week In June or the first week In

A Mutter of Opinion.
Time was and thin , too , in modern
ages when no one was considered n
scholar unless he could discourse In

is the one with the smallest feet. In
Peru a lady Is not considered dressed
unless her face Is hidden. A dozen
different doctors will maintain conlllct-

Is told of a certain artisan who was de

The Site of fluMoon. .
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

surface of the nky Is about 110 foot. Ii

Accused on Four True Dills for Crook-
ednesB In His Danklng Methods , the
O'Brien County Jury Drlngs In Its
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
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. ' " '
