JOHN D. AND BROTHER MAKE UP.
Breach Between Rockefellers Is Re
ported to Have Been Henled.
Cleveland , O. , July 25. The breach
which developed many years ngo be
tween John D. Rockefeller and his
brother Frank Is reported to have
It Is Bald to be not unlikely that
the renewed friendship of the broth
ers will bo cemented by having the
bodies of Frank Rockefeller's children
taken up and laid to rest around the
"oil king's" monolith In Lakevlew
The cemetery officials have heard
that the/ bodies of the descendants of
the men may be reunited In one burial
John D , Rockefeller , who Is a Lake-
view cemetery trustee , has ordered
that no information about his burial
plot bo given out.
Frank Rockefeller has made and lost
povoral fortunes. Ills first wrestle
with hard luck was In the days when
the Standard OH company was in the
process of formation by John D.
Frank owned an independent refinery.
He wanted to keep it independent and
refused to deal with the trust pro
This was the first break between
the brothers. Frank lost. The trust
got possession of his property. A few
years later there was a reconciliation.
Frank was tanken into the Standard
nnd made vice president of the Ohio
Standard OH company.
Then he went into the iron ore busi
ness with James Corrlgan. The light
between Corrignn and Frank on the
one side and John D. on the other is
Corrlgan charged he had been de
frauded out of 2,500 shares of Stand
ard Oil stock. He had Indorsed notes
for Frank and had pledged the stock
to John D. Frank had 4,000 shares cf
the Franklin Iron Mining company
stock also up as collateral. John D.
won the suit and kept all the stock.
Hut fortune was smiling on Frank
all the time. He was successful in
various business ventures. He went
Into the fast horse business , owning
a big stock farm at Wickllffe , wher
he raised blue blooded stock , sending
a string of trotters down the grand
circuit. He sold this out. Then he
made nnd lost money in stocks. Fin
ally he bought a large ranch in Kai
sas. He went into the stock ralsiiif
business there. Others who knew the
game better than he did went after
him. This venture is said to hav- <
cost him from $200.000 to jr.OO.O"1" .
lie never said how much. All tufcl
time John D. was piling up wealth.
The quarrel that started over busl
ness relations between the brothers
was heated at the time John D. erect
ed his monument in Lakeview eleven
years ago. Frank may have question
ed the propriety of the erection at
The quarrel ended in Frank having
the bodies of his children removed tea
a plot several sections east. John
D. may have thought there was not
room for the graves of all the Rocke
feller dependents on his plot.
Today there are eight graves about
the John D. Rockefeller shaft , with
lieadstones ranged along the arc of a
"wide circle. Four times as many
graves can be laid before the circle
Is complete. The base of the monument
ment bears the name "Rockefeller" on
each of the four sides. The epitaphs
on the headstones merely give the
dates of births and deaths and , in
some instances , the relationship.
Frank Rockefeller today would not
discuss his relationship with his broth

Tripped By a Hobble Skirt.
New York , July 25. A hobble skirt
nearly caused the death of Miss Eva
Stuart yesterday afternoon. In an at
tempt to get out of the way of a taxicab -
icab which was passing Forty-seventh
street and Broadway Miss Stuart , who
is an actress appearing in the "Follies
of 1010 , " at the Jardin de Paris , was
unable to properly manipulate a new
hobble skirt which she tried on yester
day for the first time. As she rushed
to the northwest of
enth street , she tripped and struck her
head against the pavement , receiving
what is believed to bo a serious Injury.
IN SOUTH DAKOTA.
Wheat Is About Three-Fourths of an
Average and Corn Full Average.
Pierre , S. D. , July 25. Superinten
dent Moulton of the Chicago & North
western road has just made a trip
over all the lines of that road in this
state and his opinion is that the state
will harvest about 76 percent of an
average wheat crop and barring hailer
or early frosts , will harvest fully an
average corn crop. In fact , in his es
timation , a better ono than for last
year. While there are a few spots
east of the river where the drouth
lias been severe and the crop very <
nhort , they are small in extent , as
compared with the whole state , and
in many other locations the crop IB
ahead of what it was last year , which
will go a long way toward keeping up
the average. The eastern and south
ern part of the state Is reported to be
good. An area between Iroquols and
Desmet has been hard hit. North of
Redficlcl , toward the elate line , the
crop will be short except In a circle
about Columbia , where it Is above
the average. While the straw Is short
in that part of the state the grain
heads are well tilled and the grain of
good quality. The wheat yield for
last year was 40.000.000 bushels and
75 percent yield will put it at 30,000-
In the Missouri valley in this part
of the Btnto the oat harvest Is on ,
some good samples being brought in.
The country north from central Sully
county across Potter and Wnlworth
Is reported to be making the best
Showing It has come through with for
years. West of the Missouri there
are local spots where the crop Is a
practical failure , one of these being
between Fort Pierre and Midland.
Another is in the northwest corner of
the state , Including Harding and parts
of the Perkins counties. Other spots
which received timely local rains re
port a better crop than for last year.
The crop estimates for past years
have not taken In much of the west
ern part of the state outside of the
Black Hills section and whatever is
secured in that section will be in
the shape of a general gain.
The corn crop generally all over the
state Is reported to be in good condi
tion and late rains have helped along
the situation greatly , with the Indica
tion now for a good crop generally
unless caught by early frosts. The
corn yield for last year was put at
86,000,000 bushels and 1t is expected
to be up to normal this year.
Dahlman at Nlobrara.

of Omaha and democratic candidate

speaker at a Sunday outing to be held
in Niobrara Island park on July 31.
The Nlobrara Northwestern band will

Crops Near Gordon.
Gordon , Neb. , July 25. Special to
The News : A. G. Finch received a
new thresher Friday. This Is the second
end now thresher received here within
the past few weeks. The condition of
crops now indicates that the new ma
chines will be needed.
The general crop outlook Is good.
While the dry time in Juno gave rise
to the opinion that small grain might
be seriously damaged , it is now gen
erally admitted that the compensating
rains of the last few weeks are reliev
ing the conditions to a great extent.
Oats will be a good crop. The late sown
wheat Is filling rapidly and promises n
yield considerably over the average
expectations a month ngo.
The straw of both oats and wheat
Is short , but the heads are long , large
and well filled with plump , bright ker
nels. In the most cases the grain will
be large enough to admit cutting with
The later crops , such as corn and
potatoes , show a promise of yield
greatly In excess of the past years.
Potatoes are a never failing crop in
this section , but while the acreage is
smaller , the yield will be far greater
than that of the last year. Corn shows
excellent promise of the heaviest yield
.ever recorded in this part of the state.
The dry weather retarded the early
growth and rain has come at the time

The Pupils' Eyes.
Omaha World Herald : In the old
days the birch rod and the husky
schoolteacher tho' subject of pupils'
physical well-being did not enter into
the scholastic considerations. Young
people were sent to school for mental
and moral instruction , and their bodily
welfare was confidently intrusted to
Now we have come to ventilation
and sanitary drinking cups and com
fortnble seats and systematic physical
exercise. The sound body in which to
house the sound mind is recognized as
something that can be achieved as
well as wished for in proverbs. And
the superintendent of Chicago's public
schools would even change established
literary custom for the sake of stu
dents' eyesight. She recommends that
the ordinary Gothic type in which Ger
man is printed and should be dropped
from use and Roman typo substituted.
Anybody who has noticed the differ
ence between the legibility of the type
in which English newspapers are print
ed and that of "Old English" type can
appreciate the reason. The fact that
in Germany scientific books are now
printed in English , or Roman , type is
a start in the direction of the reform
advocated by Mrs. Young.
The German emperor has reached
the age where he may be expected to
turn his enthusiasm somewhat away
from martial subjects and become
more interested in the every day nf
fairs of peace. If it is not asking too
much of his patriotic spirit , here is a
reform that he might begin to agitate
in the fatherland. It is to be hoped , of
course , that he does not recall Mr.
Roosevelt's experience with spelling
reform } in the United States.

DRUG FIENDS ARE COMMON.
Norfolk Drug Stores Have to Turn
Down Many Dope Buyers.
Norfolk drug clerks have their trou
bles and are not backward in relating
some of their experiences with un
slrable customers. The undesirables ,
they say , are the "transient" dope
fiends or "bums" in search of extraor
dinarily strong "booze. " They no
longer use the gentle ways of refusing
liquor to this class of customers , but
can always pick their customer , and
the answer seems in every case to
satisfy the eager customer who , if not
given a sharp answer , holds the clerk
in a long argument as to why he
should be sold his "dope"'or "booze. "
"Gimme a pint of 'white lime' will
yer , " was the query of a transient
"bum" at a local drug store recently.
The "white lime" referred to is trans
lated by the drug clerk as pure alco
"We don't keep It , sir , " answered
the clerk , and the "bum" in a puzzled
way scratched his head and then
asked for whisky.
Being given the same answer , the
man of many homes only smiled and
asked for "two bits' worth of ginger. "
The gentlemanly clerk immediately
wrapped the ginrer in a neat paper
and handed it to the customer , who
laid down his "two bits" and walked
out seemingly happy.
"You see , " said the clerk later , "It's
easiest to tell them that we haven't
it in stock and that saves us an argu
ment not desired. I couldn't refuse
him the ginger , although there is al
cohol in it.
"We have many cases like this , "
continued the clerk , "but the hardest
to deal with are the 'dope fiends. '
They are very common here in Nor
folk , not residents of the city , but
bums passing through. They always
have a long tale of woe to tell of how
they were sick and the physician had
given them morphine to ease the pain ,
and they later had contracted the hab
it. We usually toll them that we can
not give it to them without a doctor's
prescription and , although they man
age to get it somewhere else , they
seem to prefer to go without it for a
while than to dig up a dollar for a
doctor's prescription. Many of those
who ask for the dope have favorites
of different kinds. Most of them are
morphine fiends , but many prefer co
caine and opium. "
CAPTAIN ANDERSON WON IT.
Commander of Local Militia Company
Took Revolver Prize.
Captain C. L. Anderson , commander
of Company D , the local company of

cup given as a prize for the best

WHY NOT A HOSPITAL ?
Commercial Club Directors Discuss
Some Such Plan for Norfolk.
Why not a hospital for Norfolk ?
i Many business men of this city are In

I Hardly a day goes by that at least
I ono patient from different towns sur

Norfolk physicians send ninny of their

"My offer to the city of the throe

At a meeting of the Commercial club
directors last week , the hospital prop
osition was brought up , but It ended
In discussion. It was first believed
that the sugar factory buildings could
be remodeled for a hospital , but busi
ness men do not look favorably upon
this proposition. The question of tear
ing down the buildings nnd using the
material for the construction of a new
building was also found to be useless ,
owing to the fact that all the bricks on
the buildings were laid In cement and
it would be impossible to clean them.
If this could be done , it Is said by
business men hero , the Norfolk Indus
trial company , who have been under a

have torn them down some time
ago and sold the material , could the
bricks have been cleaned. The objec
tion to the remodeling of the building
is that the site Is not suitable for a
hospital and that the cost , of remodel
ing would touch close to the construc
tion price of a new structure.
The offer of Dr. Tashjean of the
thro'e lots is talked of favorably by
several of the directors of the Com
mercial club , who seem to be of the
same mind that Norfolk has grown to
such size now that it Is necessary to
have such an institution here.
"The hospital proposition should be
agitated , " says one prominent busi
ness man. "I for one am willing to
subscribe for a building. " A hospital
company should be formed.
"The way to do this , " he said , "is
to organize a hospital company , with
a board of trustees composed of Nor
folk business men. Any physicians M
should be allowed to take his patient
to the institution. If a hospital com
pany is not organized , some charitable
institution should take charge of it.

About a hundred fans witnessed
two fast baseball games on the driving
park diamond yesterday afternoon.
The first game between the clerks and
the firemen was won by the clerks
only after seven innings of league
playing. The second game between
the railroaders and the Edgewater
teams resulted in a score of 5 and 3
in the former's favor.
The clerk-firemen's game almost be
longed to the firemen , who were one
score ahead of the clerks up to the
last inning , when the fire fighters
.seemed to go to pieces , and their an
pitcher allowed six hits , the clerks
running in five scores , defeating the
firemen by a score of 9 to 5. it
For the first time since the city
league was organized was it necessary tie
for Official Umpire O'Toolo to bench
a player. It happened in the last in
ning of the clerk-firemen's game , when
the clerks had put out two men ; the Pi [
last man was up to bat with two Piai
strikes recorded against him. Wilde ai
threw a ball and O'Toole called it B.I

After nn address before the repub

night. In which ho explained to the
ninety-seven delegates present how Ins
purchased his quarter section of coal
land In Alaska legitimately and
straightforwardly , Congressman Kln
kald sold the coal lands to Rapid City ,
S. D. , parties who wore present at the
The deal was made in the office of
Judge Kinkaid at O'Neill In the pres
ence of a number of people. William
H. Mohr , a real estate man of Spen
cer , handled the deal for the congress
man. Who the Rapid City parties arc
has not been learned. Judge Kinkaid
paid $2,800 for the coal lands. What
ho received for thorn from the Rapid
City parties Is not known.
In a statement made at the conven
tion in reference to the coal lands Mr.
Kinkaid said :
"As about three-fifths of the an
nouncements of my competitor con
sists of an attack upon my record , 1
shall give It such brief notice as the
nature hereof will permit. The ref
erence incidentally occurring last win
ter in the Ballinger-Pinchot Investiga
tion to my purchase of a quarter HOC-
tlon of coal land In Alaska , carried
with It the information , derived from
official source , that the transaction
was legitimate and straightforward ;
but in disregard of this , to advance his
own candidacy , my competitor ques
tions Its regularity. It was because
only of the fact that Mr. Balllnger , as
my attorney , had passed on the tltlo
to the property before he was secre \
tary of the interior , when in the prac
tice of law at Seattle , that life trans
action was mentioned at all. No gov
ernment official has pretended that I
did what was wrong or improper.
Glavis , special agent and attorney for
the government In coal land matters ,
In substance , swore there was nothing
contained in the transaction on the
part of either Balllnger or myself that
was wrong. Brnndeis , attorney for
Pinchot , said : "Wo have looked Into
the case carefully. * * * There is
nothing wrong or improper. * * *
Mr. Kinkaid has nothing to conceal in
this matter as far as I know. " My
purchase was made of the entrymnn
who had an equitable title which the
law permits to be assigned or deeded ,
for which I paid $2,800.00 , and to se
cure a patent , must yet pay the gov
ernment price of $10.00 per acre. I
have not made a coal land entry. If
the entry of my grantor was made In
good faith , and the law in other re
spects has been complied with , a pat
ent will be granted ; otherwise not.
Certainly , the government is secure ,
because its officials have the exclusive
determination of these questions. "
