There wan a great effort on the pail

admitted It and doelared that ho had

His Crime.
The crime with which Frank M.
Dorsoy was charged was oiiu which
caused moro suffering among depos
itors In a small hank than any within
The Ponca bank wont to plocos and
left scores of poor pcoplo penniless.
Many who had deposited with Horsey
their last cent , lost all that they had
saved out of years and years of toll-
Ing. Some lost very heavy amounts
ami none over got the inonoy back.
U was n terrible crash for that llttlo
town that nestles among the bluffs of
the Missouri rlvor , a llttlo way below
Nlobrara , and a blow from which to
this day many have never recovered.
The fooling at I'oncu was intensely
liltter against Dorsoy and ho appeared
In the town but once , It was thought ,
nftor the hank failure and that in
the night.
Dorsoy had boon heavily Interest
ed In n racing track proposition and
nnd In fast horses. The track at Pen
ca , a mlle In distance , was reputed to
bo ono of the llnest In the west and
many Norfolk people took a special
train ono 1'ourlh of July to attend a
big meeting. And the depositors who
lost felt that It was tholr money
which helped those thoroughbred ani
mals speed about the circle.
Conditions In the Regions that Affect
the Flow of Mountain Streams.
Others than those with irrigated
farms are Interested In the amount of
snowfall In the mountains , if. as has
been said , the nmount of snowfall has
an Important bearing on the amount
of rainfall In the summer. Therefore
there Is Interest In Nebraska In the
snowfall bulletins issued by P. II.
Brandenburg , section director at Den
ver , who has the following to say re
garding the conditions In January :
During January the snowfall over
the different drainage areas , each con
sidered as a whole , was about normal ,
except in the northwestern part of
the state , where a deficiency seems to
have been general. A comparison of
the current amounts with those re
ported a year ago shows that on Jan
uary 31 , the average date of the re
ports , there was about one-third moro
snow at high elevations on the upper
drainage areas of the Grand and the
Gunnlson. and double the amount of
a year ago on the watershed of the
Arkansas and the South Platte , while
for the Rio Grande there was a
marked excess. The warm periods
were favorable to solidifying the cur
rent fall. In general the stock of
snow Is well packed , and the outlook
is very favorable for a good ( low.
Appreciative Firemen.
The otlicers and members of the
Norfolk flre department wish to re
turn their thanks for the liberal cash
donations from Mr. A. J. Durland , Mr.
Albert Degner , Mrs. J. W. Humphrey ,
also to the business men who contrib
uted gloves and other essentials to
the comfort of the lighting firemen.
All these donations are considered as
marks of appreciation for the efforts
put forth on the occasion of the Sun
day morning blaze. The firemen feel
In duty bound to save property wher
ever and whenever threatened , but to
know that their efforts are thoroughly
appreciated lightens the task Im

According to the State Journal rec
ord , thirty years ago yesterday Dr.
Alexander Hear of this city was hon
ored with the appointment as regent
of the Btnlo university when that In

A civil case came up before Justice
Hayes yesterday In which Fred
Schlambaum , a sugar boiler , sued
Hlolmrd Korth , apprentice under him ,
for $75 alleged to be duo for the In
struction which Korth had received.
As evidence of the fact that the mon
ey was duo , the complainant present
ed a note which had been given to
him by Korth , promising to pay to
Schlambaum $75 "when Korth was
satisfied that ho had become compe
tent as a sugar holler. " Korth denied
that ho had yet become competent
and Justice Hayes dismissed the case
without prejudice.
Work on the state hospital for the
Insane Is in constant progress In spite
of the fact that an investigation of the
expenditure of the money has been
ordered by the state legislature. The
three cottages and main or adminis
tration building stand out In an Im
posing way on the hill northwest of
the city and begin to replace the sight
of Iho structure which was burned.
It has been estimated that patients
could bo gotten into the building by
next summer. There Is no reason
why the Investigation now pending
shall have any effect upon the new ap
propriation that is now up before the
legislature. OUlcers of the now hos
pital are planning to nrrlvo In Nor
folk to make their homes at some
tlmo during March.
Last night was ono of the most per
fect of winter ovoulngs that has been
experienced In this city and scores of
persons took advantage of the condi
tions to enjoy the out of doors. With
a warm wave in the nir. a brilliant
moon above and the most excellent
layer of snow that has been known in
sleighing circles within twenty years ,
there was every Inducement for the
young man with a cutter and his best
girl to spend a happy hour. Some of
them spent moro than an hour driv
ing through the city streets and into
country roads. The merry Jingle of
the bells rang out clear on the stilly
night , the sharp stool shoes of the
animals clicked with vigor as they sped
over the road , laughter mingled with
the atmosphere as a bobsled party
became wrecked in a deep drift , and
nil in all It made ono of those nights
that you read about In the poems of
the olden days.

With Three Feet of Snow on the Lev
el , None of Which Has Qeen Melt
ed , It May be Expected That Rivers
Will Leave Their Banks.
"Norfolk Hhould make some provi
sion HOOD for the high water which In
bound to sweep down the Northfork
rlvor tills spring and which will , un
ions the dlko along the M. & O. rail
road tracks Is prepared for the rush ,
overflow Into the business portion of
the city and do untold damage to
himlnoHH blocks and I should he In
favor of appropriating a few hundred
dollars out of the clly treasury for
Immediate work , " said n prominent
business man and property holder In
Tim high water problem will un
doubtedly bo a serious ono In Norfolk
this spring , If It ban over been , and
those who have had to tight the prop
osition for many years know wall that
II haw over been. So much snow has
fallen all over the state and especial
ly In the northern part of the state
that a rush will lie Inevitable and
rivers may well bo expected to leave
tholr banks.
There Is trouble nearly every spring
In the Northfork from Plerco down to
this city. At Plerco the mill dam has
frequently been taxed and has suf
fered from the prcssuro of the water.
As the rlvor leaves that point , and
( lows on down , more streams empty
into it nnd by the time it reaches the
channel hero it has gone over the
boundaries Into the meadows adjoin
ing. Even during ordinary springs ,
the water backs up north of the M.
& 0. railroad tracks and has , on sev
eral occasions in the past , come
through the dlko and emptied into
every cellar in the business section
of the city. Once started , there is
nothing to stop the flood.
People who have lived In the oltv
for a long tlmo recall the trouble
which existed In the spring of 1881
when the Immense amount of snow
snow that has been compared to that
of the present winter melted nnd
was transformed Into rivers. People
were compelled to move about on
Norfolk nvcnuo in boats. And but a
few years ago the water leaked into
the business section nnd did thou
sands of dollars worth of damage.
When it is remembered that about
three solid feet of snow have fallen
over the territory during the season
and that many drifts stand very deep
all over the country , very little of the
snow having been melted or evapo
rated , it will bo readily seen that tor-
rillcally swollen streams will result.
Towns along the Elkhorn will no
doubt have high water and records
may bo looked for. It will be a sur
prise if mill dams do not swim out
into the current and a surprise , too.
If farmers do not lose scores of acres
of tholr land that borders on the wa
ter's edge.
It Is estimated that Norfolk could
better afford to expend a few hun
dred dollars ip preparing for the wa
ter than to allow It to como and bring
heavy losses to the business interests

Leavitt of Ames Says He Has Six Mil
lions to Back Project.
Lincoln , Feb. 1C. H. G. Leavitt. the
Ames beet sugar manufacturer says
that his plans call for the construc
tion in the state of six new plants to
cost nn average of $1,000,000 each ,
within the next three years. One will
bo in Lincoln county , possibly at
North Plotte , while another will be
in the Republican valley at some
point not yet determined , and the re
maining four will be distributed along
the Platte valley. One may bo estab
lished at Kearney.
That at North Platte will be erect
ed first lie stated that the deal for
the plant at that place will bo closed
about July 1 , providing 6,000 acres
of beets are contracted for. Ho does
not anticipate any difficulty as 1,000
acres have already been signed for.
The total production of the plants
when completed will give Nebraska
high rank as a sugar producing state ,
and will bring about the disbursement
of many millions , according to the
magnate's statements. Ho Is ono of
the pioneers in the sugar Industry In
the state and claims that the Intro
duction of more scientific methods
which ho has in view will make the
Industry very profitable. Ho said that
his plant at Ames has disbursed $1-
500,000 last year and then was not
running at Us full capacity for the
lack of beets.
Mr. Leavitt , after the hearing on
his application for water for use In
the Union canal had been brought to a
close , intimated that ho could carry
out the entire Pathllndor project with
the capital which ho has back of him ,
Ho stated that the cost of the now
plant which Is to bo erected at North
Platte Is moro than the aggregate ex
penditure planned for the Pathfinder
reservoir. Ho cited that fact In order
to show that ho was able to proceed
with the work as expcdltlously as the
government The fact that ho has un
der consideration six plants of that
size ho regards as still stronger evi
dence that ho is able to carry out the
entire enterprise.
State Has Possession of Hat Believed
to Have Been Lost by Defendant.
Now Ulm , Minn. , Fob. 17. What Is
hold to bo additional evidence for the
stnto In the , cnso against Dr. George
R. Koch has developed In the finding
of a brown derby hat on the road he
claims to have taken to his homo on
the evening of Nov. 1.
The hat was picked up by studentP
of the Lutheran college , by the side
of the road , nenr the creamery , the
day following the murder nnd taken
homo by the boys. It Is a compar
atively now hat , and when picked up
It was dusty and bore no marks of
blood. HO far as can lie learned.
It Is now in possession of the state
and may be Introduced as evidence
unless the introduction will material
ly change the theory of the state , as
brought out In the last trial.
The presumption Is that In hurrying
home that night the hat was blown
from the head of the dentist and over
the embankment so far that it would
have caused him delay to recover It ,
and It was left there. None of the
students at the college has lost a hat
bearing that description , and an owner
has not been found.
Shortly before the trial , the hat was
secured by ono of the professors at
the college , and taken to his home ,
and siuro the trial some words
dropped by the boys led the author
ities to investigate.
Attorneys for the defense have llt
tlo faith In the theory connecting the
hat with the defendant , and contend
that It must have blown from the head
of some person who was driving out
of the city. What real effect It will
have on the case remains to be seen.
Rev. Mr. Gleason of West Point Will
Not Leave.
West Point , Nob. , Feb. 17. Special

Delights of Colorado's Winter Climate
After spending ten days at the Al
bany , instead of two , as he had origin
ally planned , Dr. R. G. Floyd of Eu
reka Springs , Ark. , left last evening ,
with his bride for California , where be
expects to remain two days instead of
ten. This upsetting of Dr. Floyd's
plans Is due entirely to the delights
of Colorado's winter climate.
"I cannot understand why your people
ple have been so slow In coming to a
full realization of the possibilities of
Colorado as a winter resort , " declared
the doctor , who is not only president
of the commercial club of Eureka
Springs , but also at the head of the
Odd Fellows of Arkansas. "Why , you
simply have all these advertised 'win

J. C. Mardls , Superintendent of Con
struction , Says Main Building Kitch
en Is Just a Butler's Pantry Affair
. Anyway Committee Next Week.
[ From Friday's Dnllv 1
"There Is no foundation whatever
for all of this talk about extravagance
and Investigation of a scandal con
cerning the building of the now Ne
braska state hospital for the Insane In
this city , " said J. C. Mardls , superin
tendent of construction for the Cap
ital City Brick < t Tile company , who
have the contract for doing the work.
Work is Practically Done.
, "Our work on the Institution Is
practically at an cud now. " said Mr.
MnrdlH. "All that wo are doing this
week Is to install a few slate stair
steps which were delayed In arriving
and within a week wo shall have com
pleted the whole work.
"The talk of an Investigation has
been stirred up on account of a few
potty jealousies nnd there Is nothing
to It. I am not worrying in the least
over the affair and in a conversation
with me the other day State Archi
tect James Tyler said that there was
nothing to it. The work has been
well done and done according to plans
which were presented to the board of
public lands and buildings before the
work was done , nnd which were made
known to the public. "
"What about that kitchen proposi
tion in the administration building ? "
was asked.
The Kitchen Gossip.
"Tho kitchen in the main building , "
said Mr. Mardls , "Is , It is true , on the
third floor of the 'Structure. That
kitchen , however , is not to be used on
ordinary occasions as a kitchen. It
Is moro of a butler's pantry. And as
to carrying the waste of the kitchen
up and down the stairway that is
nonsense. There is a dumb waiter
running between tills kitchen nnd the
basement below , down which all of
the articles of food and the like are
to bo transported. All of the cook
ing , for the matter of that , is done in
a separate building , so that the ao-
called kitchen merely serves as a go-
between. "
Committee Next Week.
"I expect that the committee on th- .
investigation will arrive in Norfolk
next week to look over the hospital , "
continued Mr. Mardis. "They will
find nothing , however , to substantiate
the investigation. "
Mr. Mardis arrived in the city from
Sioux City last night

damage was done. The outer coating
of the eyeballs appear to have been
cooked , but this is peeling off and
the student's eyes , it is believed , will
not be permanently injured.
