The Lincoln Star voices the belief that the rural service Is reducing the saloon patronage of small country towns to the extent that many of them are going out of business. Rural mall routes are a now weapon with which to fight the saloon but they at least reduce the farmer's necessity of com ing Into contact with the tempting open saloon and provide n means of healthful nnd holpfnl entertainment at homo. Temperance agitators should promote the establishment of rural routes. ' "Put not your trust In strangers , " Is 'a precept so old that It seems to have lost strength In this age. The number of men and great business concerns which live on the credulity of people Is amazing. Men and women who should know bettor will Invest money In schemes which a ton year old boy ought to see the fraud In , when the matter Is presented by n smooth talk Ing swindler or a cleverly worded ad vortlsomcnt. If these same persons were to let an honest well known neighbor have money they would demand - mand gilt cdgo security. A. W.

This Is a good statement of the needs of Nebraska , but It can only come to pass by Individual Interest In the'affairs of the state. While the voter accepts the cut and dried policy of some political boas who has schemes of his own to carry through , there will bo llttlo 1m provoment. The loss to New Orleans from n business standpoint from the yellow fever epidemic Is a most disastrous one. Xo city In the country had brighter - | or prospects.

It Is not likely that perma nent damage to the business will re sult , but that It will bo checked until oven the memory of the scourge Is somewhat dimmed is n certain thing. Yellow fever ought to be stamped out , If It moans the extermination of every moaquito along the coast. Scarcely n year passes that America does not fit out an expedition to go in search of the mythical north polo.

For many years one of the most pop ular InduulrloH In the Hulled Slalos lias consisted In gelling the monopoly of some public utility In town or city frequently by bribing the council Iroiiipmloimly ever capitalizing It and collecting enough from consumers to pay dividends , Hut evidence dally nc- iimnlntPH to the effect that this prof- table business Is rapidly falling Into Ipuny. The vote for municipal own- urshlp in Chicago , the defeat of the JIIH lease in Philadelphia and many less noted Instances all over the conn- try , are straws pointing undeniably to : ho fact that the palmy days of the franchise are past. The snnltnry commission nt Panama will have not only to temporarily heck the yellow fever on the isthmus so that work will progress , but they will bo obliged to absolutely clear the xono from Its ravages if the canal Is to accomplish the mission for which It Is being constructed. Up to the present tlmo Asia has not been Infect ed with the yellow fever germ , but the conditions In India and southern i\sla are favorable to Its development and If an Immense trafllc should pass through the Infected district of Pan ama there Is llttlo doubt but what the disease would bo carried Into the ori ent nnd spread like wild fire.

This would bo highly popular with the masses , but of course would bo fought to the death by the plutocrats. One contemporary objects to It on the ground of the wholesale perjury It would bo the cause of. There Is same strength In thnt objection. Heaven knows there- Is enough lax lying done in America now. One favorite form of Income tax dodging In England is to make no Income return to the government. In such a ease the government makes its own estimate. If It is too low the citizen pays and keeps his mouth shut ; If it Is too high he can protest and get It revised. Dillons Dill was agitated , And was much debilitated. People said ho had consumption.

Hold by Asa K. Leonard. In more ways than one the defeat Spain received at the bands of the United States hns proved a blessing n disguise.

The man who seldom reads , loves to hnvo his picture taken in a library scone. How bold and aggressive wo all are at times , and how weak and helpless at others !

DECAUSE HE ASKED FOR A DRINK OF LIQUOR. POLICE CAN'T FIND MURDERER Officers Livingstone nnd Ueker Now Believe They Had the Murderer In a Box Car Last Night nnd Let Him Go Body May go to Medical College ri'-rotn Thiirsdny'H Dnllv. ] The pollco have as yet failed to lo cate or secure any clew ns to the whereabouts of a murderer who last night shot to death an unknown negro on the platform of the Northwestern station nt South Norfolk , when the darky asked for n drink. It was thought at n o'clock this morning that the murderer bad boon apprehended In u box car at Fremont but the person hold there later proved to bo the wrong party. Two Omaha lads who wore with the murderer Inst night when the shooting wns done , nnd who snw the negro fall ever dead with a bullet In bis brain , worn separated so that they could not concoct anything In the way of a story , and were closely questioned nt the coroner's Inquest today. They nro Vernon Turner , nged sixteen , nnd Roy Peer , nged sixteen. Story of Eye Witness. "We had been with this fellow nnd a partner of his during the day , " said one of the lads to The News. "Wo had been drinking reduced alcohol and were lying on the bank of the Elkhorn river , south of the Northwestern rail road yards , when it began to rain. The four of us started Into the yards. At the tracks the partner of the mur- leier left us. turning west on the mnln line nnd bending for a box car In which he had prepared a bed for him self. Ho wns short and wore a sandy noiistacho. "We started toward the railroad sta tion , seeking shelter from the rain. Wo huddl'od up tinder the protection of the side of the depot and took a Irlnk. " Negro Wanted a Drink. "On n baggage truck , in the rain , sat a negro whom wo had never seen be fore. He looked up and said , 'Give me i drink , lad. ' "At this our comrade drew a gun from his pocket , held It two feet from ho face of the dnrky and snapped the trigger. The negro fell over dead with n bullet in bis brain. Wo ran into the eating house to tell them that some one had been killed , and never saw the murderer again. "The murderer was a pretty good sized mnn , square shouldered and very dark of skin. He wore a black slouch liat , with no creases In It , and had a black and blue mark under his left eye and on his nose , where someone had struck him. He wns drunk when he shot. " The negro , about thirty years of ago and not a bad looking darky , was n perfect stranger In Norfolk. He wns shot squarely through the center of the forehead. The remains were tak en to the undertaking rooms of Ses sions & Hell nnd held for the coroner's inquest nt 10 o'clock this morning. Body Will Go to Medlcnl School , It Is probable , under the circum stances , that the body will be taken to the state medical college at Lincoln , for dissection. The law provides thnt where the body is not claimed within n certain lencth of time by friends , it goes to the medical school. Believe They Saw Murderer. In search of the murderer , Night Watchman Uocker and Officer Living stone went through n stock train thnt wns headed cast last night and anoth er that went west. They found in one box car. with n bed made"up , a pair of tough looking customers who , ac- cord'ng ' to the belief of Officer Uokcr. atiswered the description bv the Omn- ha boys of the murderer and his pnrt nor. The partner had the moustache ns described by the boys , the build was about the same and a fore-ln-hnnd necktie , spoken of by the eye witness es , was around the neck of the mur derer himself. Ticker wanted to ar rest the men on suspicion nnd bring them to Jail , but Livingstone Insisted thnt they wore not the proper parties nnd the arrest was not made. They were both wet from the rain nnd had n pretty completely prepared bunk In spite of their statement that thev Iw ! just arrived a moment before. They had no gun , but n gun could east' } have been thrown away. The theory of OfUcer Uoltor Is thnt the partner went Into the enr when In- left the murderer nnd boys , ami thit ; later , after ho had done the shootliiR , the murderer , too drunk to navigate very far or to apprehend his own dan ger In remaining near the city , joined his comrade In tlio c < u- and that both were there to sleep when the ofllcers arrived. They said they wore go'ng ' north on the Conestecl line this morn ing. ing.This This morning after talking with the Omaha boys , Officer Livingstone came to the conclusion , too , that ho nnd UeUor had the murderer In the eir last night when they found the two follows. ! False Alarm at Fremont. ! A false alarm which brought hopes that the murderer had been caught , ! came from Fremont during the night. The conductor of a train from Norfolk east found a man In one of the cars nnd locked him In. The sheriff at Fre mont was notified nnd the train held at East Side while the man wns looked up. He was Identified , however , ns a man who had been with the train ever since It loft Casper , Wyo. , and there fore lie was released. * / CORONER'S ' INQUEST. Verdict Found to Correspond With the Facts of Killing. Coroner Kindred of Meadow Grove was notified of the murder and reached the city this morning. At 10 o'clock an Inquest wns held over the romnlns , which had been taken to Sessions & Hell's undertaking rooms. The Jury Impannollod by the coroner consisted of the following named : Jess Heemer , C. R. Richardson , R. W. TleswfcU , L. Sessions , .1. G. Conplln and B. Neth- away. Tlio two boys who witnessed the tragedy were the only ones who gave testimony , although Chief of Pollco Hny was sworn but not examined. The statements of the two boys agreed and was practically as published. They said that the mnn seemed to hnvo a desire to shoot , nppnrently more In the spirit of drunken bravado than anything else. While going toward - ward the depot ho kept snapping the revolver and once It went off. When the negro spoke to him on the plnj form be lifted up the revolver and again snapped It and this tlmo the weapon went off. The boys do not bo- f Hove the mnn Intended to kill his vic tim. Verdict of Jury. At the conclusion of the testimony the jury found n verdict ns follows : "Tlmt unknown cnmo to his tdonth from a gun shot wound in his bond , fired from n revolver in the hands of n man , whose name Is unknown and that the act was done with murderous intent. Said deed was committed on the depot platform at Norfolk Junc tion nt or about 8:10 : p. m. August 2,1 , 100- . " Description of Murderer. A description of the murderer as given by the two witnesses Is as fol lows : Height about n feet , 5 Inches , weight 1(10 ( pounds , full fnco , heavy sot , broad across shoulders , slight Roman nose , appeared ns If It had been broken , both eyes blacked and n heavy mark under the right eye and across top of nose as If ho had been struck recent ly. Ho wore a dark double breasted coat and black vest , light striped trou sers , black shoes , bluchcr cut , n blue striped soft shirt with collar attached , ) Inek neck tie , n black Stetson hat in good shape. In all he wns well dressed. He was very much under the Influence of alcohol. He Is very dark complexloned nnd the boys thought he is a half breed or quarter breed Indian > r Spaniard. Hold Witnesses In Jail. The two Omaha boys who saw the shooting were held as witnesses un der $500 bonds each and were taken to Madison by Sheriff Clements , who hap pened to bo in town. The boys are telling their story of the affair on the Installment plan. They first left out nil mention of the partner of the murderer nnd did not give that feature until morning. Later they said there were two comrades of the murderer one a cripple and one with n moustache. They also said that the murderer , walking toward the de pot , kept snapping the trigger of his revolver , and tirM it of [ once. Word was reeohod today from South Omaha that the cripple and the mnn with the moustache had been caught by rnlhond men and are being hold. Those men were seen leaving town on a train , but the officers did not arrest them. Enjoyable Sociable. A largo crowd of young people Im mensely enjoyed the lawn social given at the Freythnler property , corner Twelfth street and Madison avenue , last night. Ice cream was a pleasant , feature.
