Delay In Both Cases.
When the two suits recently filed
jy the Press Publishing company In
fustice Elseley's court ono against
W. H. and Marie Weekes and the oth
er against Dr. J. H. Mackay came ur
for hearing at 9:30 : , W. H. and Marie
Weekes asked for a change of venue
alleging that they could not get a fall
.rial in that court because the.v
thought Judge Elseley was prejudiced
against them , but Dr. Mackay was or
nnnd to defend himself In the suit.
The case against W. H. and Mark
Weekes was transferred , as a result
of their petition , to the court of Jus
: lce Lambert , and will come up for trla
later. This Is the case In which UK
Press Publishing company Is sulnf
W. H. and Marie Weekes for $100.09

his suit , declaring that he owed n <
balance and asking for a jury trial

pay $75 for 1,000 copies of the Dall :
Citizen per day for three days In April
1904 , but claimed that he had settle <
in full and that ho would produce re
celpts to substantiate the claim. Hi
said that the company failed to so
enough type to fill the paper and In
had to employ August Brummund t
set several columns of type in' Gbrmai
to fill the paper. This , ho claimed , re
duced the charge. Ho also contendei
that the press had broken down nm
that instead of 1,000 papers , he re
ceived only about 40'0 on the first da }
This , ho claimed , further reduced th
cost. With regard to an advertisement
mont for which money was claimed t
bo duo , he said that he had given th
publisher of the paper at that $1 an
had ordered an advertisement run t
the cxtont of the $1. He claims th
advertisement- over-run severe
rionthu and that it did him actuc
damage as It contained his wrong to
f phone number.
Dr. Mackay asked If ho would bo en
titled to bring evidence Into court to
establish the pocular system of book
keeping In vogue at the Press Publish
ing company's newspaper ofllco at the
tlmo ho published his dally paper for
three days. *

a middle aged man and wns from Ver-
South Dakota Politics.
Pierre , S. D. , July 21. The holdlnc
of the primaries for the selection of
stnto officers In Juno of the oven num
bered years starts the campaign In
South Dakota much earlier than It did
In the old days of conventions for the
selection of such officials. The begin-
nlng of the next campaign Is already
on. A late story Is to the effect that
the democratic leaders are encourag
ing the ambitions of George W. Egan
and arc quietly passing the word along
to their followers that they are to get
Into the republican game and cast their
votes for Egan , with the hope that he
will secure a nomination , and give
them a chance to nominate a strong
man by a very small primary vote and
eventually place him In the governor's
chair. It Is said the democrat who
has been selected to be the beneficiary
of this movement is A. R Hitchcock
of Mitchell , who is on the board of re
gents of education.
Insurgents , who are now being men
tioned as candidates of that faction
for governor , are Governor Vessey and
Senator Peter Norbeck , of Redfleld.
There is a question If the latter will
allow the use of his name. Last Is
George W. Egan of Sioux Falls.
The places of governor , secretary of
state , treasurer , and two congressmen
are now filled by "first termers. " Al
though the two congressmen have
served other terras , they were ou\ \ , for
two years , and are In the same list as
the state officers who have been elect'
ed and will ask for a second term.
Just what figure this will cut in mak
ing up tickets next year remains to be
seen , but the state has generally re
turned for a second term men who
have given satisfactory service. Of
this list the governor and secretary
are credited to the insurgent wing of
the party , and the others to the stal
Just what position the stalwarts will
take Is yet a matter of conjecture.
The tariff bill and the actions of the
senators and congressmen from this
state may have strong bearing. It is
possible that when It comes to the
selection of a governor , they may
throw a bomb Into the Insurgent
ranks. They may decide to allow matters
tors to drift along In a general way
and take their chances In a free for all
without any special lining up.
The county option question will be
a factor in the campaign. Last year it
was kept well In the back ground , but
there are mutterlngs among the liquor
Interests of an Intent and desire tc
play even for fancied or real grlev-
anccs whenever opportunity comes.
The equal suffrage backers promise
a warm campaign , but declare positive'
ly that they do not Intend to allow the
Issue to become tangled up with the
fortunes of any political party , 01
those of any Individual. They will
make their campaign just as strenu
ously within nil the party organlza
tlons and attempt to draw strength
wherever It appears that strength is tc
bo found.

tor , charged with murder of the Chris
tie family and Michael Ronayne or
the morning of July 3 , has signed c
written statement confessing to hav
Ing committed the deeds , according tc
a rumor circulated here which the

It Is believed the special term of the

"Blood is thicker than water , " ane
the tightening of the cells of evidence
about Victor has brought n response
from his aged parents through theli
pastor , n Lutheran preacher of Eas
Aurora , N. Y. , saying that the fathei
will leave for Aberdeen as soon as UK
mother recovers from the prostratloi
resulting from hearing of the son'i
The brother In Chicago , who wroti
the sheriff that ho would have nothlni
to do with Emll , has also answered tin
call , claiming that ho Is just recover
Ing from a siege of sickness and wll
come to Aberdeen nnd give nil the as
sistance possible. The minister , writ
Ing for the parents , says that Eml
was his "pupil when o boy and ho wa :
n good boy then. "
The finding of the guns with whlcl
the murder was' ' committed was i
clover piece of detective work ii
which n prisoner | n the jail with Vic
tor won his confidence far enough t
cause him to divulge the place whor
ho had left the guns.

Nebraska Corporations to Fight.
Lincoln , July 21. It was reported at
the state house today that a collection
Is being taken up among certain cor
porations that object to the occupation
tax levied under a law enacted by the
recent legislature. The report says
that each corporation is expected to
contribute one-tenth of the tax levied
against It to the fund to employ coun
sel to fight the law.
Thanked For Not Stopping.
A patronizing young lord wan
opposite the lute James MncNelll Wills
tier nt dinner one evening. During a
lull In the' conversation he adjusted hln
monocle and leaned forward toward
the artist.
"Aw. y'lmow. Mr. Whistler. " he
drawled , "I pnhsscd your house this
nmwnlng. "
"Thank you , " Raid Whistler quietly.
"T'innk yon very much. "
Leader of Cubs Will Not Accept $20-
000 for Catcher Kllng.
New York , July 21. With President
Murphy of the Cubs In town today ,
President Ebbets of the Brooklyns
made another bid for Catcher Kllng of
the world's champions. "Cheerful
Charlie" allowed that he would be
willing to go as high as $20,000 , but
only got the stony stare from the ro
tund boss of the champions.
"Nothing doing , " quoted Murphy to
the bland proposal of Ebbets. "Kllng
will play with Chicago or not at all.
At present I have no objection to John
nie sticking to his billiard hall at Kan
sas City , as Archer seems to be doing
as well as Kllng ever did. Now , this
is on the level. We might have been
leading the league at the present tlmo
if Kling had been with us In the early
part of the season , but from now on
It will make rio difference. Wo will
get there anyhow , and I doubt very
much whether Kllng could strengthen
us much.
"A trade would bo a different propo
sition , but as for selling Kllng , there
Is no chance of that. Why , $50,000
wouldn't ' get him. He's got to play
with us first , though , and that goes.
A ballplayer Is not bigger than his
club , no , not yet , " and "Chubby" Char-
He said to "Cheerful Charlie , " "there
Is where you get off. "
Stanton Takes the Second One.
Stanton 12 , Norfolk 4.
Norfolk's per cent today is .500.
The second game was lost. It was
all right until the sixth when the
"break" came. Stanton made six
scores in the sixth and five more in
the seventh.
The batting of Buckmelstor for
Norfolk nnd Soldel and Whalen for
Stanton were features of the game.
The crippled condition of the Nor
folk team is assigned as the reason
for defeat. Luslnski recently broke
his thumb and the Injured member
was struck early In the Stanton game.
Manager Page promises a better
article when the team gets going.
West Point came Wednesday.

Game Plentiful In Nebraska.
Outers' Book : According to ttio last
biennial report of the game warden ,
Nebraska game both furred and feath
ered , has not been In as good uhapo
for ten years. While It Is unlawful to
kill antelope or deer In this state ,
there have been more of these animals
seen In the western part of this state
this winter than for a decade or more.
Largo bunches of nntelope , some of
them containing over 100 head , have
been encountered In Sioux , Dawcs ,
Box Butte , Scott's Bluff and Klmball
counties , nnd gangs of whltetall deer ,
from three or four to fifteen in n gang ,
have been seen both along the Nlo-
brara and Dismal rivers , and a few
weeks ago a rancher named Enos
Long killed a 108-pound buck on
Long's lake , Sioux county , and the
warden has been looking for him ever
since. Wolves , both the big gray and
prairie , are thicker in this western
tier of counties than they have been
in a long time.
The antelope nnd deer have" un
doubtedly been driven down from the
mountains by the tremendous snow
falls they have been having evertilnco
winter set in , but being unmolested ,
the hope of the ranchers is that many
of them will realize that Nebraska is
a sanctuary for them nnd linger hero
for n long time to come. The wolves
have naturally followed the deer down
Into the lowlands.
The prairie chicken crop of last
season was a big one , and the open
season being short n largo proportion
of these birds were left over for seed ,
and the chances are for another grand
crop this year. Geese and ducks were
never more plentiful than this spring ,
particularly the latter. Shooters are
busy everywhere and limit bags Is the
rule oven among tryos. The quail
have suffered extensively by the ex
treme cold weather , and It Is moro
than likely that the coming season will
see n tremendous decrease In their
ranks. The imported Hungarian par
tridges have also suffered considerably
in certain exposed localities , but in
the main they have wintered well. All
the streams are teeming with planted
trout , and many of the lakes are well
stocked with black bass.
Jack rabbits and cottontails are a
nuisance , and wooded creek valleys
are alive with fox squirrels , coon and
some foxes.
5,400 Acres Sold.
Albion News : One of the biggest
real estate deals ever made in Boone
county waade last week when the
Lockwood ranch , consisting of 5,400
acres , was sold to parties from Minden -
den , Neb. This ranch has been on
the market for sale for several years ,
but the large sum necessary to swing
It made it a hard proposition for the
land agent.
The present owner , C. E. Lockwood ,
acquired the nucleus of the ranch from
his father , who settled on it in an
early day. Additions have been made
to the original ranch from tlmo to
time , until it was one of the largest in
this or any surrounding county. The
sale price was $10 per aero and , al
though it is in the "sand hills , " it is
only a matter of a few years when
that land will be worth much moro.
Including the stock and personal prop
erty , the consideration of the transfer
will reach well towards $100,000.
The now proprietors will continue
Its management as a unit , and It will
continue to be the largest stock ranch
In this section.
A Lost Kee.
The Right Hon. Augustine Birrell
once believed that he had been smit
ten with a mortal disease and went to
consult a distinguished doctor who
lived in the neighborhood of Ilnrloy
street nnd who was n great expert on
the disease of which he thought ho
was n victim It wns n hot day in July ,
and ns ho walkoel from his London
home , which was in the neighborhood
of Addlson road , to Hurley street ha
perspired freely.
lie found the great physician's
rooms all crowded with patients
probably , ho thought , suffering from a
similar complaint to himself.
While waltlnpr he found on the table
a book written by the great physician
on the subject of the particular dis
ease. Ho opened the book , and the V
first words which caught his eye were
these : "Tho patient who is Buffering
from tills dlsenso never perspires. " '
lie had Scotch blood In his veins , BO
he picked up his hat and gloves and
walked out , and ho never saw that
eminent physician. London Scraps.
