W. H. II. Scott, the postmaster at
Kose water, a little office twenty-five
miles northwest of Kcnkclman, hanged
himself to one of the rafters of his
house. A few days ago he sent his fam
ily to a camp meeting in progress at
Wauneta. Keing left alone it is sup
posed he began brooding over troubles,
cither real or imaginary and came to
the conclusion that he would bo better
dead than alive. He tied Hat-irons and
other weights to one end of a rope and
himself to the other enil then swung it

strangle him to death.
The death of Henjamin Hershey,
founder and proprietor of the famed
llershej' ranch, near North I'end. is
reported from Chicago, lie having met a
violent death by being knocked down
and run over in the street. His death
is greatly regretted by all classes of
citizens, as lie had been a leading spirit
in developing the resources of western
Dodge county and had done more
toward perfecting a system of country
roads than any other agency. Every
road leading through his great farm
was thoroughly turnpiked, he main
tained one of the latest and best road
graders for that purpose.
A prominent farmer writes to the Lin
coln Journal: "It has become a stere
otyped phrase, 'don't hoard the curren
cy.' Now how is a man going to help
himself? To illustrate, 1 know a man !
against whose farm there is a mort- I
gage, due October 1. 1893. About Au
gust C he received notice that the monev
' would be due October 1 and that thev
wanted it when due, and ordered him
to make arrangements to pay the same.
He made answer that the money, oth
principal and interest, was ready and
waiting to be paid, and if they would
send release of mortgage and the other
papers to the bank in the town where
he lives they would get the monev for
their papers. They rather snappishly
declined to do it."

Cloture Will Not be InToked.
Washington-, Sept. 9. The last ex
tremity of cloture is not to be invoked
by the American senate. The heavy
majority of members is m favor of the
unconditional' repeal of the purchasing
fclause bf the siicrman act, but this ma
jority has been carefully polled, and it
has declared that the conditions aro
not such as to watrant the radical de
parture from the titrte-honored trad
tlons of the senate that would be neces
sary to secure a cloture of debate and
force the repeal bill to the linal vote.
To one unfamiliar with tlie situation
the events of the last few days have
been uninteresting and unimportant.

With cloture finally abandoned, there

within half a mile of the fugitive, but
their horses were inferior to his and
they could not overtake him. Other
parties are in pursuit and although the
outlaw has taken to the mountains it
is thought that he will be captured.
His two companions, who were killed
while attempting to get away with the
bank's money, are still shrouded in
mystery as to their identity, but they
arc thought to have been in the west
for some time and to have robbed tlie
bank at Telluridc in 1SS8.

had been obtained to the whereabouts
of the gang. The section mentioned

That is what gives Mr. Farley a strong

Mr. Cannon of Illinois mado the humorous
suggestion that It did not make any differ
ence whether the clause was in or out of the
rules, as It was only meant to fool the pub

Mr Cannon, with a wave of his arms in the
I direction of the democratic side, "you did
not reduce salaries or expenditures. We
had the senate then, but It did not interfere
with you. It, however, furnished you the
excuso you wanted. Now that vou hae the

the philosophy of finances; It came tocon-
fre.s" with a demand for a particular act,
he repeal of the Shermali law. It suggested
iio policy which will admit of the iisifalcom
promises in legislative proceedings. It is this
or nothing, and that so far concerned the
people he represented that they accepted
tho movement In thesplrit which it was giv
en. It proposed to give no quarter; his peo
ple proposed to give none, lie called atten
tion to the fact that a very large majority
of tlie farmers in the south were membersof
the farmers alliance and that one of the car
dinal doctrines of the farmersalllance Isthe
free and unlimited coinage of silver at tht
old ratio. The alliance all through thesouth
had. he said, catechised all candidates for

their views and who was not willlngtosoex-

Mr. IV flcr read a letter from Senator Gor

Industries preparatory to framing a new
taritr bill. The only persons prosent were
1 representatives of the potato and onion
growers of the Bermuda island?, who asked
for a lcductiou of dutv on these articles on
I tiie ground that theyarealmo-t prohibitive,
that they do not compete with native pro

causo licrmuda buys from the United

In reply to a question from Mr. Geer, Mr.
Masters, one of the Itermuda reprepresenta
tlves said the removal of tlie duty would
, doubtless double their production and en-
1 able them to buy more of the United States.
Mr. Masters then yielded to his colleague,
Mr. Watson. The latter in reply to a ques
tion then took up the matter of who pays
the tarltT tax and explained in support of
his assertion that the Inhabitants of Iter
muda (the foreigners) paid the tax: that
this wa due to tlie extremely perislrable
nature of the products shipped to the United
States. After the tariff tax I paid in New
York the products go 011 to tho market and
bring what they can.
In answer to a question by Mr. Ilopklns.
Mr. Watson said that since tlie enactment of
theMcKlnley law Bermuda had paid 5 .V).
0GO tariff taxes to the United State. This
money has been taken from the resi
dents of those islands and placed In tlie
treasury of the United States.
Mr. Bryan When ynu export tothe United
States you say you pay the tariff. Now
when you import products from tlie United
States who pay.s the tax then?
Mr. Watson We pay that tax also.
Mr. Bryan You pay both ways? You are
in pretty hard luck. Laughter.l
Continuing, Mr. iat.son e.pamcd that in
the case of Imports, the articles were or
dered in the United States at tixed prices

Washington, Sept.- v In the senate
yesterday Mr. Cullom of Illinois took
the lloor and spoke in favor of repeal.
The following are signiiicant extracts:
"I am foi-ifcrnl because, in my opinion.

though the act did not hax-e much p irt

Proceeding the speaker attributed
the present stringency to the attitude
of the party I11 power on the currency
and tariff, and closed with an appeal
for speech action.
Mr. Cok, democrat, of Texas, ob
tained the floor nt the conclusion of
Mr. Ctlllom's remarks. He said: "A
settlement of Hie money problem can
only be made by tile establishment of a
bimetallic currency as it existed prior
to 1.S7?. The people will never be con
tent until the -i---ong of IV.-?. by which
one-half of the motley of the country

trol the gold the I'nited rUmes would
have to have. The abandonment of
silver by the Tinted States would be its
death knell as money, except in sub
ordinate ways and for subsidiary coin
age, 'c have no hopes, he said, of an
international agreement. There is no
idea entertained anywhere that one is
possible. The I'nited States must de
pend upon itself if bimetallism is ex
pected." The United Stalce. he said, was the
only barrier between the people ami
spoliation. He referred to the steps
taken by tlie New York banks to se
cure the repeal of the Sherman law.
and was interrupted by Mr. Vance,
democrat, of North Carolina, xvho said
lie had this morning received a letter
from a very reputable business man tn
Salisbury. X. V . enclosing a letter
from a firm of bankers in New York
upon that very point, and he would like
to read it. Mr. Coke assented.
The letter was addressed to I. II.
Koust, Salisbury, in relation to a loan
which he desired on some mill property,
and in closing the bankers said: "The
senators from your country are not
looked upon as promotors of the gen
eral welfare. If their stand represents
the views of your people on linaucial
matters, it will be very diflicult for
you to secure any accommodation fiom
capitalists in this section until there is
a decided change."
The reading of the letter provoked
derisive laughter among tlie southern
senators. Mr. t'oke then concluded his
speech and the senate went into execu
tive session to consider the nominations
of certain officers whose confirmations
Mr. Uerry, democrat, of Ivans is. said
were essential to carry into eiicct tne i
