A Tragedy at Caaaes.
A Paris special says: The American
colony has beon startled br a terrible
tragedy which occurred at Cannes. Ed
ward Parker Deacon, a citizen of the
United States and a member of an Im
portant banking firm in that "city, re
turned unexpectedly to the Ilotel Spleo
dide at Cannes, where he has been stop
ping during the winter with his wife.
After exchanging a few words with the
porter on duty, Mr. Deacon ran upstairs
to his wife's bedroom, burst in the door
and found her there in company with
M. Emilo Aboille, a Frenchman who
was a friend of his. After exchanging
a few hot words with M. Abcillo, Mr.
Deacon pulled a pistol and shot tho
Frenchman, who fell to the floor mor
tally wounded. Deacon was arrcsteJ.
Mrs. Deacon is still at the hotel with
her four young children.
He TOUI FiRlit Duels With Three Men He
A Paris special says: M. Drumont,
author of tho work, "Lo Secret dc
Feurmis," has become involved in diffi
culties through certain passagos in the
book which offended various persons.
He has already received and accepted
three challenges to fight duels from men
who deem themselves insulted in the
book, and he went out to meet M. Isaacs,
sub-Prefect of Avenues, Department of
the North, who was the tirst challenger.
Tho weapons were pistols. Isaacs was
wounded in the abdomen and Drumont
struck in the chest.
A Genuine Strike.
An Ouray, Colo., special says: The
Cutler Creek gold strike appears to bo
genuine. Men wore climbing over the
hills and staking claims all night.
Every available horse in town was
chartered for the new camp. More than
one hundred claims have been staked
in the last twenty-four hours. The
country is under snow, and It is specu
lation what the result will be. Many
of the boulder.:, when broken open, are
flecked with virgin gold, and some of
them run by asay nearly one hundred
ounces to the ton. It is five miles north
of Ouray, and seven or eight miles by
wagon road and trail.
He Was a Woman.
A Chatanooga, Tenn.. special says:
Henry Armstrong, aged GO, an old set
tler who died a few days ao, proved to
bo a woman. According to an old diary
found among her possessions her namo
was Myra Lawrence. Just beforo the
war she was deserted by her lover, who
afterwards entered tho confederate
army. Then shn donned male attire
and enlisted in the same regiment to be
near him. He finally died in her arms
from a bullet wound. Retaining her
masculine attire, Myra Lawrence then
began a new life as a man, and kept
her secret until the end.
A Gambler's Luck.
It Is now ascertained that the man
who cut off his tongue at Los Gatos,
Cal., last November, is Georgo Wilson,
a professional gambler, although he
dresses as a priest. His family is
wealthy and lives in New York. His
father has just died and left an estate
of $150,000. The estate cannot be set
tled until this man is found.
One Trust Commence; War on Another.
A Chicago special says: The whisky
trust is backing a syndicate which will
endeavor to sccuro control of all tho
breweries in Chicago not belonging to
the English syndicate, with the inten
tion of forming a combination to com
pete with its rival, tho now syndicate.
It is said to have a capital of $5,000,000.
A dispatch from Hamburg announces
tho death of Mr. Carr. the founder of
the New York Union Steamboat Line,
aged 01 years.
At Goshen; Ind., Jo;ie Kane filed suit
against Sylvester W. Shumard for 810,
000 damages on the ground that the de
fendant unlawfully sold liquor to her
husband, thereby alienating his affec
tions. The convention of lumbermen called
to meet at the national capital Feb. 23,
has been postponed till March 1. The
purpose of tho convention is to protest
against the proposition to put lumber
on the free list. The cause of the post
ponement is the probable absence of
many Congressmen from Washington
Feb. 23, owing to the World's Fair" ex
cursion. A Cincinnati, O., special says: Mere
dith Stanley, tho bridge jumper, made
what in all probability will prove a fatal
leap from the Cincinnati and Covington
bridge, a distance of over 100 feet, into
the Ohio River. As Stanley -jumped he
saw a piece of wood floating In the
water and turned his body in the descent
to avoid striking it. In consequence he
fell on his side.
A New ror.K special says: W. Trav
ers Jerome, counsel for CarlyleW. Har
ris, under sentence of death for poison
ing his wife, received a letter from Chi
cago sent him by the young man who
says that Harris' wife was in the habit
of taking morphine. In his letter he
encloses some powder wtrch he says is
part of that used by Mrs. Harris of As-.
bury Park, N. J. The real name of the
writer of the letter it now appears is
Carl Hanraan. though in Chicago he is
known as Carl Petersen, and when he
first wrote her hes'gncd his name Peter
sen. Mr. Jerome will have the powder
A New York special says: Tho dif
ferent trans-Atlantic steamship compa
nies are greatly exercised over the
tvnhus fo.vnr nnthrnak And pstinriallr
oyer the action of tho health officer of
tne port in quarantining such a large
number of immigrants, as the compa
nies arc obliged to support the Immi
grants while in quarantine, so that the
profits made in carrying thom here are
wiped out. There aro now due a large
number of Russian immigrants. The
agent of the North German Lloyd Steam
ship Company cabled instructions to the
other side to refuse any more Russian
'The passengers on the north-bound
passenger train on the EvanviIIe &
Indianapolis Railroad had a thrilling
experience recently. As the train was
approaching Saline City, lnd., a freight
was trying to back upon the switch so
as. to permit the passenger to pass. The
brakeman on the freight lest his head
and threw the freicht on the track with
the approaching pa-.scngcr. 'dhc engi

Other, whdn the fofaier jslbwly began to
back up: The speed. ticreased and ii
it passed the engineer and fireman l
was going so fast that neither could get
into the cab. Soon it was backing down
tho road at the rate of fifty miles an
hour. The passengers became panic
stricken and men and women -screamed
and wrung their hands in the agony of
despair. The conductor tried to quiet
the affrighted passengers. He started
to the engine, climbing through the
baggage car and over the tender. .He
finally gained the cab and brought the
train to a halt Several of the lady
passengers fainted.
Between fifteen and twenty wolves
have made their appearance in West
Seneca, a suburb of Buffalo, and women
and children are afraid to go out of
doors. They appear in the village at
night and escape to the woods about a
mile away. Several old hunters claim
to have seen them and are following
the trail well armed. The story seems
incredible, yet it would be very easy for
the hungry hoi do to have crossed the
ice from the .wilds of Canada, as the
lake is frozen over and it -is only ten
miles across the point. Children are
kept from school and the men have their
muskets cleaned and loaded. A party
of fifty or sixty men will start out on a
hunt for the wolves.
A San Francisco special says: The
State Department will bo astonished
when it gets the formal claim of the
sailors on the Baltimore, who were
wounded by the Valparaiso mob. Law
yer F. Allcyne Orr has the cases of
twenty-four men who were all wounded
in Valparaiso streets. They are com
mon sailors or coal-heavers, but they
want big money for their rough hand
ling by the Chilians. Their combined
claims foot up $1,305,000. The largest
sums are demanded by John Hamilton,
sailor, and Jeremiah Anderson, coal
heaver. They apply for $150,000 apiece.
Hamilton has three bad wounds and de
clares that there is still a piece of Chil
ian dagger in the wound that refuses to
heal. Anderson Is disabled by several
wounds, the most serious being in tho
lung. Other claims vary from $100,000
to $30,000.
The American bark Colorado left San
Francisco for Paget Sound and thence
to South America. Instead of taking a
crew from the Coast Seamen's Union for
Puget Sound, then shipping a deep
water crew on the sound, the captain
signed a crew for the round trip. This
was opposed by the Seamen's Union,
and this morning when two sailors were
being taken aboard tho vessel an attack
was made on them and John Curtin, a
boarding house man. The three men
were beaten unmercifully and in a few
minutes a hundred men were fighting
on the wharf. Deputy United States
Shipping Commissioner Therwald was
roughly handled, and by the timo of
the arrival of the police a number of
the crowd showed cuts aud bruises.
A Wichita, Kan., special says: A
stockman named Pratt and his little
daughter were killed and their bodies
terribly mangled by wild dogs. These
dogs come in from Colorado at this
timo of year, but their depredations
have been confined generally to ttock.
Pratt evidently m ade a desperate fight, as
the road along which he was chased
was marked by the carcasses of dogs.
He and his daughter left Leonard for
home just at nightfall and got within a
mile safely before succumbing. There
the wagon they were in overturned and
they were evidently killed just where
they fell.
A 8EX8Ation was created at Adrian,
Mich., at the union service when Rev.
Dr. W. K. Spencer, Presbyterian pas
tor, announced that on tho pievious
evening he had made tho rounds of the
principal saloons and. gambling places
of the city, disguised, and at each had
found members of his congregation.
Thcso the clergyman proceeded to scoro
right and left. Many transgressors
caught their breath expecting to be
named, and blessed their stars when
they escaped. The contribution after
tho services was remarkably large.
A Chicago special says The consti
tutionality of thoMcKinlcy administra
tive act is to be attacked. The first
movo was made in the United States
Circuit Court by filing a motion to dis
miss tho appeal of Colloctor Clark from
the decision of tho Board of General
Appraisers, assessing certain dress
goods belonging to Locke, Huleatt &.
Co. The motion is on tho ground that
the administrative act is void, and a
number of technical points are raised
in support of It
A Kalamazoo, Mich., special says:
Harry Bernard and Edward Holdshfp.
aged 19 and 17 respectively, and belong
ing to good families, are under arrest
for robbery and jail' breaking. The
robbery occurred three years ago in
Elyria, Ohio, and after escaping into
Indiana they were arrested and re
turned to Elyria. The same night they
broke jail with eight others. They re
turned to Kalamazoo six weeks ago,
but the story of their escapade fol
lowed them. The Elyria officers took
them back.
The rush to take up sapphire ground
along the Missouri River near Helena,
Mont, still continues. Every day loca
tion notices are reccived'at the office of
the County Clerk. Just what state the
titles to thfsc various claims arc in
would be hard to.tell. Some are located
two or three times. Not only is the
ground on both sides of the river taken
up, bntjocations are made in the river
bed and channel, so not a spot may be
overlooked in tho region of country cov
ering the sapphire fields.
A tPECiAi. from Abjl'ne, Kan., says:

from si: Geoff 6" iha'ji two m5n jfrfpet
sonating officers captured two wealthy,
citizens whom they meant to hold for
heavy ransoms, but they, were foiled by
the escape of one victim while L they
were out after the other. The first iHtOi
captured was Thomas Varney, whom
they charged with setting fire to a mi
at Rowlesburg. They bound him with
a heavy rope and took him to a shanty
about four niilos in the mountains,
where they tied him to the floor. They
then returned to tho village and goinrf
to the house of Dr. Harper, knowing, it
is supposed, that ho was sick, pretended
to arrest him for the same critrie
Harper's weak condition obliged therd
to go very slowly, and this gave Varney
time to loose hU bonds and escape.
When his abductors arrived at tho
shanty and found Varney gone, they
were afraid he would alarm the author'
ities, and hastily fled, leaving Harper
st'll bound, miles away from his home,
lie finally released himself and found
his way back to town. t
A Dallas, Tex., special says: The
public Is greatly excited over the reVG1
lations of the doings of Col. J. B. Simp
sou, who for years has been a promi
nent citizen. It has been learned that
his real cstato deals were on a mam
moth scale and that the people who
purchased from him are beginning to
find that he had placed other mortgages
on the property. He was President of
tho Fourth National Bank of Dallas
and it Is said that be tried to mortgago
that concern, but was prevented by the
directors. Among the losors is tho
Weir Plow Company, Monniuuth, 111.
Thoy sold him a stock of carriages on
time without security. He disposed of
them for about $20,000. Attachments
are piling up in the County Clerk's of
fice by the dozen. Among tho heaviest
are the Edinburg-American Land and
Manufacturing Company, $51,000; and
tho Scottish-American Land and Manu
facturing Company, $50,000. It is un
derstood that he is on the ocean bound
for Europe with between twenty and,
forty thousand dollars in cash.
A special from El Paso, Texas, says:.
Francisco Mariano arrived thero from'
.Anthony, N. M., with a herd of stock'
and reports that at the ruins of tho!
powder mills, eight miles above El Paso
on tho Rio Grande, he saw two Ameri-'
cans lying dead insido ono of the doors,'
one naked and the other having a suit
of underclothing. Residents along the
rivor rcpoit soeing two Americans go-
Ing toward tho ruins. The powder!
mill before its destruction belonged to;
a well organized gang of train robbers
under the leadership of Doc Smart It
is believed the dead men were members!
of the gang who returned to tho old
scenes and were murdered and robbed.)
The fact that the bodies wcro stripped,
supports the theory that tho men were
killed by Indians.
A disi'Atch from New Orleans says
The true secret of the withdrawal ol
the Louisiana State Lottery from the
fierce political struggle which has been,
raging for many mouths is because tho
lottery is to. go to Mexico. Arrange
ments to that end have about been com
pleted with President Diaz, and Fort

the Louisisna lottery after 1893.

A London special says: The loss to
shipping during the recent storm has
been very heavy. The extent of it is
not known, as the reports from the
coasts, owing to the prostration of tho
wires, are very meager. Tho British
bark Cavour, It is believed, has been lost
otl Roundstono, on the western Iri.-h
coast. Fragments of the wreck have
come ashore marked "Cavour, Green

vessel, timber laden, has drifted ashore,
bottom up, near the same point, and
fishermen just come in report that they
saw the body of a woman Jn the water.

It was the first time in the history of
Nebraska's statehood that the bourbon
hosts from the broad prairies of tho
State could asicmble tlndor the shadow
or the c&pitol's dome and cheer lustily
for a Democratic GttYcrnof who 'was"
sure to retain his scat.
The day was everything ttiat co'u'ld
have been desired; barring an unpleas
ant tendency tif tho mercury to scok
seclusion in the basement Story ot the
thermometer. Tho sun shone brignil;
however, and overcoats, muQlcrs, and
enthusiasm kept tho visitors warm.
It had bcott cSpeCted that the Govern
ors from Wisconsin, Ioft'd, KHd Missouri
would lend their presence to the cele
bration. It was learned, however, that
Gov. Boles would not be here, and a
telegram from Gov. Peck announced
that he also would be Mnabta to come.
The first delegation to arrive was tlq
Democratic Club from York, headed by
tho K. C. & O. land of twenty pieces.
Foilowing a few moments later came
the Johnon County delegation with
two bands. The Cadet Band of tho
State University also made It S appear--ancc
on the streets aud acted as escort
band for incoming delegations that now
began to arrive on trains but a few mo
ments apart. Nebraska City came with
several hundred men in line. Otoe
County's representatives cheered and
were cheered heartily as they marched
to their quarters preceded by a military
At 11 o'clock the first division of tho
Omaha delegation arrived. Line was
promptly formed and the march to the
Lincoln Hotel was taken up. The Sec
ond Infantry band from Omaha led tho
way, followed by tho Omaha Guards.
Then camo tho Snmosct Club, with
Humphrey J. Moynihan, John A.
Creighton and Buffalo Bill, guests of
the club, in the lead. Tho last was tho
lion of the spectacular display, and tho
hundreds who lined tho sidewalks fell
over each other in their frantic efforts
to keep alongside of the hero of a hun
dred sanguinaiy contests on tho saw
dust arena of every capital of the civil
ized world. Then came the members of
the Jacksonian Democratic Club. The
entire Omaha delegation crowded into
the Ilotel Lincoln, where the ranks wcro
broken and everybody prepared to re
fresh themselves bofore the celebration
of the afternoon commenced.
The decorations along the lino of
march were not profuse enough to con
fuse the eye, but what little was dis
played was tasteful. Most of tho busi
ness houses, irrespective of the political
afliliatious of their proprietors, dis
played the American flag, while the na
tional colors floated from the hotels and
public buildings.
Postmaster Gere's Republican senti
ments were engulfed by tho wave of
Democratic enthusiasm, and when the
brawny Samosets and brave Jacksoni
ans arrived from Omaha the national
colors mounted proudly to the stairhead
and waved a defiant non-partisan wel
come to the assembled hosts.
The green flag of Erin also added its
color to the decorations and indicated
the presence of many patriots who de
sired to distinctively honor the land
that gave birth to Gov. Boyd.
Gov. I'oyd did not make his appear
ance to the crowd during tho forenoon..
The parade began to form soon after
l o'clock under the direction of Will
Love, marshal of the day, and his aides,
T. L. Hall, C. W. Weckback, F. E.
Thomas. C. I. Neal and C. L. Eaton, all
of whom worked energetically to bring
order out of tho confusion which for a
time reigned supreme. Before the sig
nal gun sounded the various organiza
tions were massed on the west north,
ami cast sides of the government square,
all eagorlv waiting for tho appearance
of the first Democratic Governor electod
since Nebraska joined tho sisterhood of
The work of forming the line con
sumed more of the time than had been
anticipated, and it was not until shortly
after 2 o'clock that Gov. Boyd made his
appearance on the balcony of the Hotel
Lincoln and was greeted by deafening
lurzas from tho serrieJ ranks. Gov.
Boyd was accompanied by Mrs. Boyd,
Mrs. Blerbower, Miss BoyJ, Miss Mar
caret Boyd. Dr. George L. Miller, Judge
Wakeley, Charles Ogden, C. S. Mont
gomery,, Euclid' Martin, and Julius
Meyer. Tho appearance of the distin
guished guests was the signal for an
Diitburst. and when the Governor lifted hat and bowed to the crowds, the
breaking waves of enthusiasm daShcd
higher and higher until the air was
rent with resounding cheers.
The parade was one of the most Im
posing demonstrations ever witnessed
in Nebraska. In point of numbors per
haps, it has been exceeded, but taking
the class of men represented, their ro
sition, profess'ons, and standing in their
respective localities into consideration,
the affair has never been e iialcd.
Nearly every organization in line car
ried a banner or transparency upon
which its members expressed their own
part'cular sentiments in their own pe
culiar way.
Arriving at the capitol grounds the
procession divided, one division passing
around to the west and the other enter
ing at the east. In a short timo the
crowds were massed at tho south front
of tho capitol impatiently awaiting the
'appearance of the Governor on the bal
cony above, which had been appropri
ately draped with tho. national colors.
After several bands bad assaulted the
air with melody of various degrees of
excellence, Adjt-Gen. Vifqua'n lifted
his hand for silence. He then said:
"Fellow Citizens: Gov. Boyd will ad
dress you in a moment. When he makes
his appearance' I want you to welcome
him with a chcci.'
The admonition was followed strictly
to tho letter and when the governor
appeared, leaning on the arm of Dr.
George L. Miller, he was greeted by a
long drawn out cheer which did not
cease for over two minutes. Mounting
the broad stone parapet Gov. Boyd
Spoke as follows:
Yellow Cittzens-It affords me greU pleasure
tofcepenn'tted to make a personal acknowl
edgment to so large a number of my gratitude
to the people of Nebraska who have stood by

rights which I esteem above office -lhe power
and privileges of an American citizen, lhave
never been a citizen of any other nation than

partisan madne33 by political opponents, but I
have never deserved it. During all the years

The Governor was frequently inter
rupted by applause and cheers. When
he had finished Gen. Vifquain handed
him a handsome bouquet of rosea and
choice flowers, accompanied by a card
which boro the following inscription:
"Will you pleaso accept the best wlshos
and prayc.s of the children of St The
resa's school for a happy and prosper
ous term of office."
Gov. Boyd then retired to the State
Library room, where he was congratu
lated by his immediate personal friends.
He then walked down stairs to the ex
ecutive apartments, where he received
the thousands who passed through to
take him by the hand. Tho reception
lasted until after 4 o'clock. The pro
cession was then reformed and the vis
iting organizations marched back to
tho Hotel Lincoln, where tho ranks
were broken.
The evening's program consisted
chiefly of a promenade concert by thn
Second Infantry Band and a grand ball
in the parlors of Hotel Lincoln. The
crush at the latter was indescribable.
The parlors were inconveniently crowd
ed, the corridors were thronged, and
the rotunda below was simply a jam,
in which ladies and gentlemen endeav
oring to reach the parlors above were
jostled and pushed from side to sido
until they were forced to believe that
an inaugural ball was not everything
that could be wished for. Aside from
the inconvenient crowding tho ball was
in every way a success. Many of the
best society people of Lincoln were
present, while many prominent guests
from Omaha and other Nebraska cities
graced the occasion with their pres
ence. Dancing continued until mid
night and after. The large assemblage
gradually dispersed.
Facts That Are Important for Exhibitors
to Know.
Hon. SETn P. Moblky, as press com
mittee of the World's Fair Commission,
has prepared for the- press of Nebraska
tho following circular concerning ex
hibits: Under tho rules adopted by tho Na
tional Board of Control, as interpreted
aud declared by Director General Da
vis, oxhibits ot the following class will
have to be made in their respective de
partment buildings of tho exposition
proper, and will not be permitted in
State buildings: Dairy products, api
ary interests, manufactured goods and
products of every kind, textile fabrics,
tho fish industry, machinery, woman's
handiwork, poultry, and all kinds of
live stock.
These are facts important for intend
ing exhibitors to know.
Director General Davis states in a
letter of Jan. 20 that "no exception to
those general rules has been made for
any Stato."
The exhibits in State buildings will
under the rules be confined strictly to
products in their natural .state, illus
trating the natural resources of the
State, agricultural and mineral, and
historical and educational exhibits of
non-competitive character. It is well
to remember that all exhibits of every
character intended to bo competitive,
and to bo Catalogued and recognized by
juries of award, must be made in their
respective departments by the exhib
itors and not in State buildings.
By bearing these facts in mind disap
pointment in the future will be avoided.
Fremont Citizens Hare a '.Terrible Ex
perience. A crazy man terrorized the people at
Fremont. Wilson, the young man who
took morphine with suicidal intent,
after being carefully nursed back to
life, left his room at his boarding house
and, seizing a pitchfork created a brief
reign of terror on Main Street. He
went into several biisiness places and
routed out the people, and with fork in
hand gave chase to pedestrians. A mob
finally surrounded Wilson and captured
him before he had injured any one.
Nebraska Stock Breeders Sleet.
Tne. annual meeting of the improved
Stock Breeders' Association of Nebraska
convened at Beatrice. Dr. Billings of
Lincoln presided. After a business
meeting a paper on "Tho More Practi
cal Methods of Education for the
Farmer," was read by Professor Inger
soli of the State University. Prominent
stockmen all over the State were in at
tendance. Dr. M. E. Knowies of Terre
Haute, a veterinary, read a paper upon
-'Sterility in Breeding." The session
lasted three days.
Shot While Huntlnj; Geese.
At Chapman, while riding in a cart
on their way to the Platte River to shoot
geese, two young men, Fred Rice and
his cousin, Clark, who is visiting with
Rice, met with a very serious accident,
which was caused hy the gun slipping
through the foot slats and being dis
charged. The full charge of shot en
tered Clark's right arm near the shoul
der, completely shattering the bono and
necessitating amputation, which may
prove fatal.

President Hamlll and four other mem
tof ol the Chicago Board of Trade ap
peared fefbrw the Senate Comaaittee on

tion contemplate by the Hatch and

Michael dahjr.
''Speculative' bodies, " urged Mr. Hara
111, "are necessary to adjust the rela
tions between the supply and demand ot
products. The advance in prices checks
Consumption and stimulates production,
and the- fall In price checks production
and increases eomaumption. There Is
some prico at which they aro perfectly
adjusted, and this 1 termed 'prop
er price.' The speculator makes
tiiO actual ' market value conform
to It. He cannot influence it, since tho
supply and demand do that, but ho
merely determines the actual market
rice and makes it coincide as nearly as
po8iM with tho proper price. Fluctu
ations should be as little as possible,
and the tendency of speculation as pou
ducted by tho board of trade is to keep
the market in a state of equilibrium.
Th jnovemont of wheat last fall was
enormouf Under the existing system
tho dealers and exporters placed wheat
for delivery In the future ot high prices.
The orders wero filled, and by tho time
lfw farmer was able to deliver it tho
machinery of commerco was in motion,
and the crop moved off easily at good
prices. No glut ensued, and tho se.Uers
as well as tho buyer were benefited.
The speculative supply, as a third ele
ment, prevents unduo enhancement of
priced The speculator is also an im
portant ffleter Id distribution. Buying
in a market relatively cheap and selling
in a market relatively high prevents ac
cumulation at some pcnat and unduo
depletion at others, and thl equalizing
process helps distribution."
Mr. Haraill continued that tho hill
would have the effect of prohibiting mer
chants from handling products in legiti
mate channels ot trade. While it would
allow the farmer to sell his products for
future delivery, the merchant who bought
of him would bo prevented from selling
until the actual delivery was made.
"The result is," he continued, "that
while the fanner has the naked right to
dispose of his property, even beforo ho
has raised it, ho can really dispose of
his wheat only, and th to the miller
alone. His corn, rye, and barley must
bo sold, if sold for future delivery, to a
dealer who, under the provisions of tho
bill, would bo prohibited from disposing
of such property until its actual deliv
ery! It entirely eliminates all legiti
mato competition in tho purchase from
'the farmer of his products, for the reasou
that the miller and maltster alone re
main unhampered as possiblo buyers
from him. It discriminates solely in
favor of the miller and maltster, and
creates a monopoly for their advantage
by driving out every other dealer and
warehouseman. "
Under the bill, said Mr. Hamill, tho
packer of hogs, now the only important
buyer in that lino, would, bo prohibited
from contracting for futuro delivery of
pork products. As the result the packer
would be compelled to insist upon a
larger margin to cover the additional
risk of market while manufacturing.
This would tend to reduce the price to
the grower or farmer.
Asa final objection to the bill Mr.
Hamill urged that it would result in
overturning and unsettling to tho extent
of the total destruction of long and well
understood usages in the handling of
agricultural products. The restriction
placed upon the business of buying and
selling would prevent men from engag
ing in a legitimate trade.
Thomas A. Wright followed in a long
argument In which he cited tho legal
phases of the situation and quoted from
various decisions to show that contracts
such as were made on boards of trade,
wero legitimate and recognized as such
by tho courts. In closing he claimed
that the effects of tho passago of the
law proposed would be to drive capitil
out of tho business of handling agri
cultural products. To prohibit futures
would be to remove tho only insurance
afforded the dealers. He thought the
.measure was intended solely for tho
benefit of the big millers. Senator
Washburn, tho author, who was in tho
milling business himself, made no ob
jection to this intimation.
Mr. Wright produced some statistics
recently gathered by 8. K. T. Prime, of
Dwight, showing that many farmers as
well as millers and grain merchants
throughout Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota
were opposed to the anti-option bills. It
was also shown that selling future de
livery was a practice coming into vogue
in many agricultural districts, and tho
farmers were taking the same advan
tages as the grain dealers to insuro
themselves against loss by selling for
delivery ahead.
The Salvation Army.
The strange spectacle of a band of
rioters making an attack on the Salva
tion Army was witnessed at Eastbourne,
England. A number of its members
were severely handled and the banner
taken from them. What use has such a
crowd for a salvation banner? Louis
ville Times.
The Salvation Army had a pitched
battle at Eastbourne, England, in which,
apparently, they had to fight botii the
mob and the police. Their bravery
showed that they possessed the courage
of their convictions and the treatment
they received indicated that there is
'need of some kind of an army in that
(locality. Indianapolis News.
SaiiVation Army reports shows that
there aro nearly 1,400 corps, 3,700 of
ficers and 2,500 local officers connected
with the army in the British Isles. And
still baccarat scandals, aristocratic di
vorces and general rottenness among
Britain's upper classes are rampant.
The army should change its base and
order a general assault on Satan's
strongholds in high places where ho
is most strongly intrenched. Grand
Rapids Democrat.
Died While IJanclng.
A young woman fell dead at Pitts

Girls, don't but, like the theatrical

Still another woman has dropped
dead while .waltzing. This is the third
case reported within a fortnight, and
still the dance goes on. The social toe
Is bound to be fantastic if it dies in the
attempt. Boston Herald.
Some people will use the "case of the
Pittsburg young lady who died while
waltzing as a warning against dancing,
but it will not be a fair illustration.
Dancing in itself is not wrong, and only
the abuse of it is an evil. Baltimore
Strange Symbol.
Among the most, extraordinary

figure of a donkey's head used as a
