Ki-nrT claims to have secured the
great cotton mill, with a bonus of $250,

prosperity is doubtless assured, and
there is no reason why Nebraska cannot
support successful cotton mills as well
as any other state.
There seems to be a lively time ahead
among the republican politicians of
Fremont, on the theory that two large
trees cannot grow and flourish when
they are close to each other. Outsiders

The clover crop, which is nearly all in
stack, is said to be the heaviest ever
grown in this part of Nebraska; timothy
is light, wheat will probably average 15
bushels, oats well filled but short straw,
corn is beginning to tassel out and looks
as well at that stage of its growth as we
ever see it.
Have you considered it carefully, and
can you afford to put off sowing that
patch to buckwheat? those who have no
ground idle at this time, will remember
that immediately after cutting wheat or
rye, the shocks may be set wide apart in
straight rows, and an acre of ground
plowed between, one half bushel to
three pecks of seed will sow it.

Farther Trouble Expected aad the
aUlltla Ready Ar War.
Dultjth, July 9. The laboring men's
strike, which has been in progress sev
eral days, culminated in a bloody war
between the strikers and policemen.
Thirty determined policemen were
pitted against 3,000 desperate strikers
armed with pistols, stones and clubs.
At 3:90 o'clock a crowd of strikers
reached Third street and Tenth avenue,
west About 4:30 a mob rallied and
started back for the sewer trench. They
were infuriated by the presence of the
police. Half an hour Jater they made
a rush for the cordon of police. The
police drew their clubs ana revolvers.
A volley and one striker lay dead,whilo
seven more were wounded. One
policeman was shot through the
jaws. Three men are dead and
twelve or fifteen wounded.
The strikers started from Twentieth
avenue, while another body came down
from Third street by Fifteenth avenue,
and made a rnsh with clubs and rocks.
The police stood their ground. As the
strikers made the rush a single shot was
fired, then crack, crack, crack, went
the rifles of the police, followed by a
fusilade from the strikers' revolvers.
After the first fire came an awful
hush. On the walk in front lay a man
shot In the head. Several more were
bleeding from ghastly wounds.
At 5:45 company K, of the state mi
litia, arrived, and with bayonets drove
the crowds from Michigan street Th9
mayor then made a speech, ordering
the crowd to disperse. The police and
militia then drove the crowds from all
A Later Report.
Dulcth, Minn., July 8. The day
light does not lessen the hideousness of
yesterday's report of rioting, except
that but one death has occurred instead
of five. The other four and two addi
tional are expected to die at any time.
The wounded will greatly overrun first
estimates, and it is now estimated that
at least fifty people received bullet
wounds. Three nave bayonet wounds
and about a dozen were hit by rocks
and bricks. The police injuries in
clude sixteen officers here, two of
whom will be off duty sometime. The
others did not realize their hurts until
an examination revealed them.
A fresh danger threatens. The strikers
have stolen a Tot of dynamite from the
blasting contractors, and it is believed
that in the event of the expected con
flict to-day this explosive will be
brought into action The police will
watch the strikers with Winchester
rifles and revolvers, and the militia will
respond in an instant The regular
force will be all detailed for this duty.

A Floater aad a Letter with Reference
to Cronln's Murder.
Niagara Falis, N. Y., July 8. On
Thursday afternoon the body of a man
was found floating In the whirlpool,
having evidantly come over the falls.
It was that of a man about 40 years
old, 5 feet, 8 inches high, and weighing
about 150 pounds, with dark hair and
mustache. The body was nude except
for a black checked necktie. The body
has not beep identified. Sunday two
boys found a letter among the rocks on
Third Sister island, which seems to have
some reference to the Cronin mystery.
It is written in a fair hand but the
spelling is bad. The word "the" before
"trunk" in the letter is underscored.
The letter is as follows:

Deak Brother: I know that what I am about
to write will drive the blood from your heart. I
am about to bring an end to all my trials aad
trouble. God knows life, until recently, was as
sweet to me as to any one, but the strain of late
has been too much for me. I can't go into the
presence of our Holy Father with my mind so
strained. I must ease my mind. Why are you
not with me so that I can talk to you? You hare
been a true friend. I never bad more to say to
you than I have bow. What a fearful tale I
could tell, but dare not put it on paper, for all I
know punishment will never ba metel out to
me in earth for the part I took in it You can
not imagine how I have been tried since I left
you. Hay God forgive it alL When I left you I
went right to Chicago, and you can guess from
reading the papers as to C being missing how
all came out in ridding ns of tbat devilish traitor
and spy of our actions. God only knows why
such a fearful change has come over me since
that night. I left the city at once and hurried
here to finish the part that had been given me.
Hy brain is on fire. O. I have waited so for the
trunk to come, each day's delay has increased
my frenzy to the highest pitch, and now I know
the plans, for all they were so carefully laid,
must have miscarried, and I dread the conse
quences. I can't stand it any more. I am going
to end it. All I want you to remember Is that I
have been loyal to Ireland's cause but now I am
sick and all broke up Ever since that feaful
night my sleep has been filled with fearful
dreams, and now after removing from me every
thing they cant identify me, I shall free myself
from any more by suicide, which here is so easy
one step into the swift currant aad all is
done. Hy body, instead of his, will be picked
up and buried with the unknown aead if ever
found. Good bye. Ed.

Ohaha, July 6. At 8:35 engine No.
2W left the Missouri Pacific depot for
West Side, about six miles wast of
Omaha, to take a number of loaded
stock cars from that place to South
Omaha. As the engine .was rounding
the curve north of the fair grounds
three men emerged from the roadside
evidently intoxicated and fighting.
They were clutching and striking at one
another, and so overcome with rage as
not to notice that they were moving
straight toward the track, and that a
train was coming. When the engine
was but ten feet away all three of the
luckless party fell squarely between the
rails. A moment later and their man
gled bodies madeof the track as ghastly
and utterly horrible a spectacle as can
be conceived. The engine was running
eight miles an hour and so was brought
to a standstill almost immediately. The
wheels and trucks of the locomotive

blood and wound about with strips of
flaw aad entrails. It

must have been that of a tall man of
BBBfificeat physique. His left leg was
torn from the body which was muti
lated almost beyond recognition. An
other had been of slight build. The
shapeless trunk was breathing when
first found, but this faint evidence of
life ceased a few moments after being
found. The third man was found twen
tvfeet from the track and alive. Drs.

Brewery i-iant Destroyed.
Milwaukee, Wis., July 6. The
Falk, Jung & Borchert brewing plant,
located on South Pierce street, between
Twenty-fourth and Twenty-fifth ave
nues, was totally destroyed by fire.
Not a building of the great plant was
spared. The fire originated in the malt
house and spread with great rapidity,
destroying the malt house, the brew
house, the offices, the bottling depart
ment, and finally spreading to the beer
cellars, which are still burning. The
total loss is estimated at from $700,000
to $800,000 and the insurance reaches
only half of this sum.
Kansas' Great Wheat Tleld.
Popeka, Kan., July 6. The crop re

double last year's product The crop
may now be said to be successfully har
vested. The largest yield is in Sumner

nied by Judges Horton, Tuley and Col
lins. Market quotations, the decision
said, were of such importance to the
public that they could be considered
public property and if the injunction
was dissolved the tendency would be to
create a monopoly in the big board.

Farmers Alarmed for Their Corn.
Craio, Neb., July 4. The farmers of
this vicinity are becoming alarmed over
the appearance of the corn worm again.
They did considerable damage last year
to the corn crop, and it was hoped that
they would not appear again. They
cut off the roots of the corn, and unless
a heavy wind strikes the corn it remains
upright, but the ears when developed
are light and chaffy and the yield very
light They only work on old ground,
or where corn was in the year before.
A change of crops kills them. This
some of the farmers did, but those who
neglected it will suffer.

by foul gas. His assistants could get
no reply from-him, and concluding some
thing was wrong, one of them went
down and found Sands unconscious. A
rope was fastened around his body and
he was hoisted up. It required over an
hour and the assistance of a physician
to restore him to consciousness.

and Kilrain was the fir.it to shy his
castor into the ring. He was seconded
by Charlie Mitchell and Mike Donovan.
John Murphy was bottle holder. Sulli
van followed a minute later, and was
roundly cheered. His seconds were
William Muldoon and Mike Cleary;
Daniel Murphy of Boston bottle bolder.
Pat Kerrick of New Orleans was sug
gested fur referee by Kilrain, and John
Fitzpatrick. also of New Orleans, by
Sullivan. After slight wrangling Fitz
patrick was mutually agreed on for ref
eree. Kilrain won the toss for posi
tions, and selected the northeast corner,
Sullivan taking the southwest
Just before time was called Kilrain
stepped over to Sullivan and offered to
wager $1,000 on the result, which was
promptly accepted by Sullivan, and the
money placed in Referee Fitzpatrick's
In the fourth round both men were
panting heavily and there were loud
cries of "Sullivan is licked f Before it
ended Sullivan made the firs, of his
famous rushes, driving Kilrain to the
ropes. Kilrain recovered and succeeded
in getting John's head in chancery.
"While in this position Sullivan gave
Kilrain a good blow in the nose and
both went to the ground, Sullivan on

drew li st blood, Sullivan went at him

a rigut-nanuer in the necs, followed by
his left in his stomach, which laid Kil
rain flat on his back.
During the progress of the ninth
round Harding shouted, "Five hundred
on Kilrain!" "Taken," responded Sul
livan, as he handed out the money in
crisp $10 bills. The tenth round was
a disastrous one for Kilrain. Sullivan
delivered heavy blows on Jake's chest,
neck, ribs and nose, and finally sent
him to eartlu
In the thirteenth round Sullivan beat
Kilrain all around the ring and finally
with a lioavy breast blow felled him
like an ox
At the opening of the nineteenth
round the referee demanded that Kil
rain wash his hands as he believed he
had resin on them, Donovan protested
but Kilrain complied.
In the twenty-fourth round Kilrain
succeeded in giving Sullivan several
powerful breast blows but before the
round ended he received in return one
in the neck which floored him and for
a moment he was thought to be sense
less. In the twenty-eighth round Kilrain
came up smiling to the scratch. "Easy
little fellow," he remarked to Sullivan
as the latter gave him a stinger on the
left cheek and an equally strong deliv
ery in the left ribs. Several more blows
were exchanged and Kilrain had to
drop again. The same story was now
repeated round after round.the exciting
crowd yelling derisively, and suggested
that Jake ought to fight only a woman.
It was apparent that Kilrain was de
termined to be game so long as he could
keep on his legs, but the crowd was not
in humor to admire his courage and
brute tenacity. Now and again he
managed to get in some good blows
on various parts of Sullivan's
anatomy, but he invariably dropped
when retaliation seemed inevitable. In
the thirty-fourth round a blow behind
and under the right ear felled Kilrain
like an ox. There was some good fight
ing in tlie tnirty-nitn round, Kilrain
getting two tremendous upper-cuts that
caused the occupants of the stand to
give vent to a prolonged "Oh." In the
thirty-sixth and thirty-seventh rounds
Kilrain walked around too much for
Sullivan's patience and a thousand
voices in the crowd yelled, "Cowardl"
It was light touches on both sides,
walk-arounds, clinching and dropping
on the part of Kilrain from now on.
Sullivan evidently pitied his opponent,
for times without number he gently
pushed him away with his open bands
when he could 'have delivered blows
that would have settled the mill then
In the thirty-eight round the referee
again insisted that Kilrain should fight
and not walk around. Donovan objected
but the spectators howled him down.
Sullivan delivered two terrific body
blows in this round and a third in the
breast that sent Kilrain two feet back
wards to the ropes, where he fell in a
heap. In the forty-fourth round when
Sullivan began to vomit the Kilrainites
shouted to their man to go for Sullivan
in the belly. Kilrain could not be per
suaded, however, to put up his fists
until his opponent had indicated his
readiness to proceed. In return for hie
consideration he got a blow in the neck
that felled him like an ox. So it went
on, round after round, every one ending
in iviirain going oowa.
in tne nrty-rourth round nnrain suc
ceeded in getting in on Sullivan's face,
but the latter got Kilrain's head in
chancery and pummeled him to his
heart's content The next round end
ed by Kilrain falling to the ground
completely exhausted while endeavor
ing to spar. Kilrain was knocked down
in the sixtieth round. In the sixty
second he wound his arms around Sulli
van until the referee was forced to tell
him to break away, and Sullivan him
self urged Jake to be a man. In the
sixty-third be received a telling blow
just under the heart, and in the sixty
fifth Sullivan went at him with a rush.
In the next round the Boston boy forced
him against the ropes and banged him
right and left. In the sixty-seventh
and sixty-ninth rounds- he knocked
him under the ropes, while in the sixty
eighth he sent in two frightful upper
cuts. While falling in the sixty-ninth
round Kilrain caught hold of Sullivan's
legs. Somebody in the crowd shouted,
"He's dying, John; hit him hard." Sul
livan's only response was to turn
toward the direction from which the
voice came with a look of disgust,
From this on to the' seventy-fourth
round Kilrain dropped at the slightest
movement of Sullivan's fist A breast
blow felled him in the seventy-fifth
and when time was next called he
failed to rise.
