Washington-. June 8. The senate
Monday disposed of the lumber para
graph, which haE been more stubbornly
contested than any other feature of the
bill thus far, by defeating the motion of
Senator Vest to place white pine on the
free list yeas 20. nays 28. The contest
was mainly significant in breaking
party lines which have been maintained
with few exceptions during the early
stages of the debate. Ou the final vote
eight Democratic senators voted against
Sir. Vest's proposition Messrs. Bacon
suid Clay of Georgia. McEnery of Louis
ana. McLauren and Tillman of South
Carolina. Martin of Virginia, Rawlinl
of Utah and White of California. On
the other hand Mr. Carter, Republican,
and Messrs. Cannon and Mantle, silver
Republicans, voted for the Vest motion.
Following this a vote to substitute the
Wilson schedule was defeated yeas, 17;
nays, 27, and the schedule was agreed
to as reported.
The debate preceeding the vote was at
times very breezy, owing to the break
of political Hues.
A general discussion of the future
program of the bill continued before the
senate adjourned. It led to a statement
hy Mr. Allison in charge of the bill that
the committee probably would submit
amendments to the sugar schedule. For
this reason he announced that the sugar
schedule would be passed over and the
tobacco schedule taken up.

Mlaeaar! Man Oa Trial For Klllles; His
Mother aad Slater.
Libertt, Mo.. June 8. William S.
Foley, charged with the murder last
March of his aged mother and sister,
was placed on trial here this morning.
The courtroom was crowded, and the
trial, because of the prominence of the
Foieys and the atrocity of the crime,
promises to produce a long array of sen
sations. Over a hundred witnesses
will be called. Foley is 30 years old,
aad prior to his arrest bore an enviable
reputation. If convicted it will be on
circumstantial evidence, which, how
ever, is very strong against him. Evi
dence tends to show he killed the vic
tims as they lay asleep, and that his
motive was to secure a quick division
of the Foley farm. The family is one
of the most prominent in Clay county

Cincinnati, June 8. Jockey Clerico
had a close call from being killed at La

down the starting machine made a wild
dash for the grand stand fence. Before
Clerico could get in control of her she
jumped over the railing at the lower
end of the stand and fell into a ditch
with the boy under her. Clerico escaped

badly injured by a collision on the
Omaha railroad, near Hudson Junction,
yattarday afternoon The trains were
raaaing at a high rate of speed and met
on a sharp curve, affording the crews
bo possible escape. The dead:

Three Bodlee Burned.
The way freight, westbound, was
coming in at a rate of 18 miles an hour,
when, upon turning a short curve on a
down grade, it came upou a work train
backing east at a speed of 35 miles an
hoar. The collision was something ter
rific. On the rear of the work train
was the boarding car, in which were
four men belonging to the work crew.
They were never aware of their danger
and were undoubtedly instantly kiiled.
The car took fire and three bodies were
burned in the wreck.
Herman Reby, fireman of the work
train, was also instantly killed, but the
body was recovered. Both engines
were totally wrecked.
The wreck was caused by the disobey
ance of orders by Engineer James
Owen of the work train and the con
ductor, who were given right of way
to the westbound track They forgot
their orders and took the eastbound
track and did not discover their error
until too late. Owen is nearly crazed
and a guard has been placed over him.
The damage is estimated at $G0,000.
TWENTY RIDERS ARE HURT.
Berloaa Accldaat at a Bicycle Race Near
Passaic, X. J.
Naw York, June 8. While turning
a sharp corner at the foot of a steep hill
20 riders in a 5-mile road race, near Pas
saic, N. J., ran into a big stone, and
every one of the riders was injured and
very wheel was wrecked. That none
of the riders was killed is extraordinary.
Sixty 'cyclists had contested. By the
time the steep hill was reached 20 riders
were bunched together. They did not
slow up for the hill, but dashed down
at full speed. As they reached the sharp
corner they attempted to turn into the
river road. The momentum was too
great, however, and each man lost con
trol of his wheel. As the leaders went
down amid their wrecked wheels their
followers ran into them amid the wild
est confusion. A cry of horror went up
from the spectators on the hill, and sev
eral of the women fainted. Half a hun
dred men were soon at the scene of the
accident, and the work of extricating
the injured was begun. Several of the
riders were dragged out unconscious.
George Peddy of Lyndhurst was found
30 feet away half dazed, between piles
of stones, and with a broken leg. H9
had been among the first to strike the
obstruction. The stone which the lead
ers struck weighed fully 10 tons, and on
all sides of it lay bleeding and bruised
riders. Parts of wheels and racing suits
were scattered all around. The men
were soon freed from the wreckage and
assisted to a shed near by, where the
spectators bound up their wounds.
Cyellat Rilled While Racing aTrollejr.
Providence, June 8. Arthur W.
Lahiff, while racing against an electric
car, met a tragic death. Just outside
the Roger Williams park the road is
quite steep. Trolley cars are in the
habit of bowling down the incline at a
high rate of speed, and a good many
'cyclists have tried to beat them in
races. Last evening when a car, headed
down hill, Lahiff was alongside.
He was measured up by the motorman
for a race, and the contest began in
earnest. Suddenly Lahiff was seen to
tumble and make a complete somersault
over his handle bars. He struck with
great force while going at his fastest
clip, and his neck was broken.
Six Iajared la an Elevator Accident.
New York, June 8. The elevator on
the Park Row side of the postoffice,
which is used for carrying freight and
employes, fell from the fifth floor to the

Governor Ruahaell Ha Begun an Official
Colcxbcs, O., June 8. Governor
Bushnell last night began an official in
vestigation of the military phase of the
Urbana affair, Adjutaut General Axline
assisting him. The governor was in
his office until late and heard the state
ments of Colonel Anthony of the Third
regiment. Captain George O. Leonard
and Lieutenants R. O. Campbell and
W. O. Clifford of the Urbana company.
It developed that Sheriff McLain did
not have telephonic communication
with the governor on Friday night, a
has bean reported. Captain Leonard
stated that at the time the governox
talked over the telephone, as the gover
nor believed, with the sheriff, the latter
was in the jail and had no means of get
ting to a telephone.
It is believed that some officious per
son representing himself to be the sher
iff communicated with the governor,
and fhat the real facts were cot made
known, the idea being to convey a false
impression to the governor. The fact
that Sheriff McLain telegraphed for
troops is not denied, but the previous
misinformation regarding the situation
telephoned to the governor misled him
in judging of the necessities of the oc
casion demanded when the formal call
for troops was made. The gorernoi
will investigate the matter thoroughly.
The governor has received assurance
that it will be perfectly safe for the
officers of the Urbana company to return
home and they will go to Urbana in a
couple of days Prominent officials and
citizens of Urbana have advised against
civil action in Champaign county and
the talk of indicting tha officers of the
Urbana militia, it 1? now believed, will
come to naught.

New York, June 8. The Journal
publishes the full text of Consul Gen
eral Lee's report on the Ruiz case to
Secretary Sherman. It is dated Ha
vana, May HI, and says in part: "I de
duce from my knowledge of the facts
the following conclusions:
"First, Dr. Ruiz was arrested on a
"Second, he was pla-ed under an im
proper jurisdiction, and died before the
proper tribunal considered his case,
thereby giving him no opportunity to
prove his innocence.
"Third, he was kept 'incommunicado'
in a solitary cell for .:: j ;ioars, in viola
tion of his treaty rights, which limit
such confinement to Ti hours.
"Fourth, he died from congestion of
the brain, produced from a blow on the
top of the head.
"Fifth, there are two theories con
nected with the wound on the head.
One, that in a state of mental excite
ment he ran across the cell as described
by one of the jailers and butted his head
on the door in a frantic effort to get
out. Another, that he was struck over
the head with one of the clubs carried
by the jailers by the immediate watch
man who had probably ordered him to
cease his cries for relief and for his chil
dren, and upou his not doing so, struck
him with more force than he intended,
or it is possible the blow was delivered
to make him confess or give evidence
"But whether, when bereft of reason,
he inflicted the blows which produced
brain congestion or whether he died at
the hands of others, the truth will prob
ably only be known when the hearts of
all are revealed the fact remains, his
unjust confinement killed him, and had
he been released from incommunicado
by the hand of man at the end of 72
hours the hand of death might not have
released him at the end of 315 hours,
and today the widow would have had
the support of her husband and the
moans of his fatherless children would
never have been heard in the land.
"I therefore conclude, saying as 1
have done in all previous reports about
this case, that whether Dr. Ruiz killed
himself or was killed by some one else,
will, under the existing condition 3 al
ways remain unknown."

To Test Texa Antitrust Law.
Austin, Tex., June 8. The case of
the state of Texas against the Waters
Pierce Oil company was submitted on
argument here in the district court,
where the state is seeking to revoke the
permit to do business granted the oil
company on the grounds that they have
entered into a compact with the Stand
ard Oil company by which the former
is to control the price of oil in Texas.
The suit is based on the antitrust laws
of Texas and the charge is open viola
tion of said laws. The defendant de
murred to all charges and questioned
the legality of the law under which they
were being prosecuted. They vigorously
denied the charge of pooling and set
forth that other companies th&n them
selves were operating in Texas, which
went to prove that no trust existed.
The argument of the case occupied the

braska interests put their best foot
foremost, but it is always the truth that
does actual business. Baltimore prices
are a cent a pound more on butter
than Elgin prices, the difference in
freight between the two places is that
much. That is hardly foundation enough
for the statement that Albion butter is
worth a cent a pound more in the Balti
more market than the Elgin butter in
the same market The truth is that
Nebraska creameries and Nebraska sep
arators are doing most excellent work
for their patrons and themselves, for the
communities which they help make
thrifty and prosperous, but they labor
under disadvantages that Elgin does
not; they strive against common cus
toms and conditions that the Elgin
people long ago overcame, and the suc
cess attained at Elgin in butter making
is the admiration of everybody who
knows anything about it. But success
ful butter making, as we all understand,
includes a multitude of things, each one
a study and a business requiring time,
care and special attention to make suc
cessful. To our taste Nebraska June
butter is as good as can be, but let us
be satisfied to tell the world that our
butter, ordinarily, is classed among the
best on the market and commands
prices that make the business profitable.
The county institute, which opens
next Monday for a two weeks' session,
will be well attended, although a great
many teachers will study in normal
schools this suunmer. Supt. Rothleitner
is trying to secure Chancellor Mac Lean
as one of the lecturers. We give a list
of the teachers of Platte county who, so
far as known, will attend on some pro
fessional school. For the Fremont nor
mal, which will get the banner list, the
following are in attendance or will be
during this summer: Misses Mamie
Shea, Eliza Morris, Lizzie Irwin, Jessie
Maw, Alice Studley, Katie Cronin, Susie
and Anna Mylet, Bessie Higgius, Celia
Wagner, and Messrs. Hilsabeck, Martin
Buck, T. C. and P. H. Hogan, Henry and
Herman Myers. Those who will attend
the Wayne normal are: Misses Beula
Wheeler and Lucy Cross, and Messrs.
Pearl McCoy, Anthony Johnson and F.
II. Schure. Misses Lottie Hoare and
Eva Brethour will attend the Lincoln
normal, and Misses May Alderson and
Grace Clark will go to the State Univer
sity normal. Miss Agnes Carrig will
take a course at the Grand Island School.
This long list is a good showing for the
interest being taken in education, and
will affect attendance on the institute
somewhat, but so many new teachers
are constantly coming in that it is not
expected thai the average attendance
will be lessened.

Madison Chronicle: Another special
stock train of eleven cars of prime cattle
left this station last Saturday for Chi
cago. Mr. O. S. Christian, whose fine
stock farm is one mile northeast of town,
had nine cars and Mr. Norman Ochsner,
one of our well known young stockmen,
had two cam. The cattle were all in
fine condition and made a good showing
as they were driven to the Btock yards.
The train was madtt up of Rock Island
palace stock cars, and went over that
road from Omaha east. Hi Andrews,
the veteran engineer of the U. P., pulled
the train into Omaha. This train load
of cattle will bring about $(1,000 more of
cash prosperity to Madison.

he Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Kail
way, via Omaha and Council Staffs,
affords excellent facilities to reach their
destinations in a manner that will be
sure to give the utmost satisfaction.
A reference to the time tables will in
dicate the route to be chosen, and, by
asking any principal agent west of the
Missouri river for a ticket over the
Chicago, Council Bluffs & OiiihIiu Short
Lino of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul Railwuy, you will be cheerfully
furnished with the proper passport via
Omaha and Chicago. Please note that
all of the "Short Line" trains arrive in
Chicago in ample time to connect with
the express trains of all the great through
car lines to the principal eastern cities.

Suffering Humanity !
To au Scffebeks: I write this for
the benefit similar sufferers may derive
from it, unsolicited and out of pure
sympathy to those poor mortals who
may be afflicted with that dread disease
In September of 1887 the disease
known by the medical fraternity as
Inpuserethemustosus first made its ap
pearance on my face and soon spread
across the nose and over a greater part
of the face, causing unsightly sores.
After nearly ten years of constant doc
toring with many noted physicians und
deriving temporary benefit at times, my
system at last reached a stage of com
plete collapse, and I was Hat on my back
with no ray of hope. At this stage I
was recommended to try Dr. Lieber of
Omaha; after an examination he said he
could cure me. As a drowning person
grasping at a Btraw I entered his private
hospital, and in a short space of time I
was able to leave the hospital a well
woman. My face is now clear and shows
but little sign of the dread disease.
While in the hospital there were also
removed from my body seven cancers.
and that witbont the use of the knife.
The medical fraternity scoff at the idea
of cancers being removed without the
knife. But I am a living proof that it
can be and is done by Dr. Lieber. To
all those poor mortals who have given
up the battle against this dread disease,
I say don't despair, but consult with the
doctor. I make this statement out of
pure sympathy for similar sufferers, and
will lie glad to see or answer any in
quiries in regard to my case.
