While walking along the street at
Alliance James Cockrell, timekeeper
for one of the railroad outfits near
there, was attacked by a party of
hoboes, who intended giving him a
threshing. Cockrell was considerably
pounded and drew a revolver. Mark
JjC was shot a few inches below the
heart and Otto Held of Schuyler
through the groin. They will prob
ably recover, though both are dan
gerously wounded. Cockrell immedi
ately gave himself into the custody
of Sheriff Sweeney.
Last summer a Chicago firm had it3
agents in the country soliciting .$15
subscriptions for one copy of the his
tory of York county and one or two
other counties surrounding. The notes
for $15 each are coming due and the
books are being delivered. Farmers
claim to have been nicely duped.

by Ralph Stevens in the livery barn
occupied by Ed Wegner of Norfolk,

harnesses were saved and all the hors

Ames was the scene of a disastrous

NEARLY A TON A DAY.
The Great and Growlag Baslaets of th.
Beatrice Creamery Company
The new building of the Beatrice
Creamery Company, probably the larg
est and best equipped creamery estab
lishment In the United States and per
haps in the world, say a dispatch
from that place, will be thrown open
for the Inspection of the public to
morrow; This company suffered se
vere loss from fire a day less than a
year ago and the opening now will be
a sort of celebration and jolificatlon.
The Beatrice Creamery company
was organized in 1894 a a corpofatlod
with Mesem Haskell and Bosworth as
principal and controlling stockholders.
At that time the office of the company
was located In Beatrice, but the su
perior advantages of Lincoln . In the"
wayof better railroad facilities induced
the company to move the butter mak
ing plant to Lincoln.
Temporary quarters were secured in
a building on North Tenth street, but
the buaiaeas of the coapaay eapaaded
so rapidly that another change was
necessary. The large Fitzgerald build
ing at the foot of P street was leased
and remodeled, fitted with Improved
machinery and arranged expressly for
the concern. A month or so later the
building was entirely destroyed by
fire, together with all of the costly
machinery. The debris was cleared
away and the construction of the new
building was commenced about eight
months ago. Both the lot and the
building are now owned by the com
pany. Nearly eighty sklmimng stations are
operated in connection with the plant
in this city. At these stations milk
is purchased from farmers, put
through machine separators, the cream
sent to Lincoln and the milk return
ed to the original owner. Fanners re
alize about 2 cents per pound more
by selling milk to the creamery than
by making the butter themselves, and
at the same time they are relieved of
the necessary labor of churning. The
output of the Beatrice Creamery com
pany amounts to about 14,000 pounds
of butter daily, or about five carloads
per week. In addition to the manu
facture of buter the firm also deals ex
tensively in eggs, shipping from two
and a half or three carloads of candled
eggs per week. The plant and build
ing are estimated to be worth about
The skimming stations operated in
connection with the creamery are
located in Nebraska, Kansas and Col
orado. Nearly all of them are owned
by private or separate companies, but
are directly controlled by the Beatrice
company. One roan is employed at
each station and at a few there are sev
eral men regularly employed.
Nebraska Crop Conditions.
UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA,
Llqcoln. June 20. The United States
department of agriculture climate and
crop bulletin of the weather bureau,
Nebraska section, for the week ending
June 19. says:
The past week has been warm and
wet in eastern counties and dry in
western. The average dally tempera
ture excess has varied from 2 degrees
in the eastern part of the state to
less than 1 degree in the western.
The rainfall has exceeded half an
inch in central and eastern counties
and was exceedingly heavy in Dodge,
Washington and Burt counties, rang
ing from 4 to nearly 7 inches. In
most of the western counties the rain
fall was less than a quarter of an Inch.
The continued dry weather In the
western counties has been exceedingly
unfavorable for small grain. Oats and
wheat have been considerably injured
in that portion of the state and many
fields are ripening prematurely. In
some counties the grass is drying up.
The past week has been exceptional
ly favorable to crops in most of the
eastern counties: In the counties
where the heaviest rainfalls occurred
corn suffered considerably from wash
ing, continued wet soil and lack of
cultivation. Wheat and oats are head
ing out ana rye is beginning to ripen.
Corn is backward and small in all
sections, but stand is good and the crop
healthy. It has not yet been injured
by the drought in southwestern coun
ties, and has made fine growth in east
ern counties during the past week.
Generally the corn is free from weeds,
and the second cultiration is well ad
vanced. But in the region of heaviest
rainfall where cultivation has been re
tarded, the fields are becoming some
what weedy. Potatoes are growing
very well and are now generally in
bloom. Cherries are ripe and the crop
is good. Alfalfa is mostly cut for the
first time and the crop is light Sugar
beets are growing well.
Nebraska In Brief.
Freeport dispatch: During the last
eight days the Nebraska Indians have
played eight games, winning six of
them. The Indians won the third game
of the Dubuque series easily by a score
of 7 to 1. Plattevllle, Wis., whose team
had not lost a game in two years, next
succumbed to the prowess Of the red
man by a score of 13 to 3. Apple Riv
er. 111., was defeated 13 to 4 and 15 to
0. On Thursday the Indians entered
upon a series of seven games with
Freeport. Freeport has an entire team
of paid men and has been strengthen
ed recently by the addition of several
stars from the Western association.
It is considered the strongest team in
Illinois outside of Chicago. The In
dians shut out the Freeport team In
the opening game 4 to 0. Freeport
won the next two games 8 to 3 and 15
to 9, and today the Indians again de
feated Freeport on her cwn grounds
in the presence of the largest crowd
ever assembled at a game in this city
by a score of 6 to 1.
A meeting of company C, N. N. G.,
was held in Nebraska City to elect a
new captain, this being necessitated
by the election of Captain W. H. Hay
ward as major of the regiment. A
civil organization, of company C was
perfected by the election of John A.
Rooney, president; M. McCreedy, vice
president, and Fritz Nichols, secretary
and treasurer. The following were
then elected officers of the company:
First Lieutenant W. H. Wiley to be
captain; second lieutenant. Paul Jes
sen to be first lieutenant; Sergeant
E. F. Wilhelmy to be second lieuten
ant. The question as to who will repre
sent the inird congressional district
at West Point and Annapolis is not
yet decided. Rollo T. Anderson of
Neligh and Jerome E. Langer of West
Point stood at the head of the list in
the mental e'xamlnation, with W. N.
Hensley of Columbus and C. F. Mar
shall of Niobrara second on the roll
for West Point and Annapolis respec
tively. Anderson and Langer failed
in the physical examination, and it
now looks as though Hensley would
receive the appointment to West Point

LONDON, June 24. The Shropshire
regiment has been ordered to hold it
self in readiness for immediate em
barkation for Cape Town.
LONDON, June 24. A dispatch from
Cape Town to the Outlook says: The
tension is extreme. Business is at a
standstill and the general feeling Is
that England must promptly bring
matters to an issue. The league will
have no difficulty in preventing meet
ings supporting Sir Alfred Milner'i at
titude, the desire being to refrain from
embarrassing the imperial authorities.
The Orange government is urging
the Transvaal to make further conces
sions. Many people consider that Sir
Alfred Milner's franchise proposals
are useless without the granting of
twelve seats in the mining centers and
the right to speak English in the
Volksraad. Otherwise It will be im
possible to-select representative men.
Failing these concessions the Johan
nesburgers say they prefer a treaty
providing security and judicial and
Plotlnr. Against Cabinet.
PARIS, June 24. The new cabinet
ministers took possesssion of their
offices today. The prefect of police,
M. Blane. had a long interview with
the premier, M- Waldeck-Rosseau,
during the day, and It is asserted he
handed the latter his resignation. le
progressive republicans have held a
meeting under the presidency of M.
Milne. Considerable diversity of
opinion was developed. One faction
decided to oppose the new cabinet,
owing to the presence of M. Millerand
In the ministry. The socialist depu
ties are also at variance regarding the
entry of General de Gallifet into the
cabinet and a portion of that party
has decided to found a new group, to
be entitled "revolutionary socialists."
Otis Needs Good Stenographers.
WASHINGTON. June 24. There has
been a call made by General Otis upon
the war department for four expert
Spanish court stenographers for serv
ice in the Philippine islands. They
must be familiar with the Spanish and
English languages, able to translate
from Spanish into English and from
English into Spanish and experts in

Ireland oa Americanism.
NEW YORK. June 24. A dispatch
to the Herald from Paris says: Mgr.
Ireland, archbishop of St Paul, has
made some highly interesting state
ments on the subject of "Americanism"
to the editor of the New Era. Some
extracts from the interview give a
clear idea of what "Americanism" re
Mgr. Ireland says: "If by Amer

Oat of Politics.
ST- LOUIS, June 24. A special to
the Post-Dispatch from La Porte, Ind.,
says: Governor James A. Mount for
whom western politicians have devel
oped a vice presidential boom, has writ
ten a personal friend that he will re
tire from politics at the close of his
term of office. The governor is also
credited with being a candidate for
United States senator, but his letter
disavows any future political aspira
tions. A person is always startled when he
hears himself seriously called old for
the first time. O. W. Holmes.

parade, the Cours Dajot, on the cliff
overlooking the splendid harbor, in
which half a dozen picturesque old
three-deekers are lying moored along
side modern cruisers, were a few
groups of sailors and marines gazing
seaward; , .
When questioned ihey admitted that
they were watching, for .the French
cruiser Sfax. bound from French Gui
ana with the famous prisoner on board,
but In the same breath expressed the
belief that it would not arrive in the
daytime. They think the warship will
be kept outside the harbor until night
and that then Dreyfus will be landed
inside the arsenal. This Is the general
opinion of the townspeople, who are
eager to witness the landing.
The military and civil authorities
profess to know nothing about the
matter, hot even if the Sfax is coming
to Brest; .
A representative of the Associated
Press called at the maritime prefecture"
this aftrnobh and had a conversation
with the pkrt admiral, Barrera, whd
was typical of French politeness, but
who displayed most praiseworthy Ig
norance. He said:
"Up to now I have received abso
lutely no instructions. I am awaiting
orders from the new minister of ma
rine. I cannot even say Dreyfus will
be landed here, in any ease; he can
not arrive yet,'' and, taking a map",
he traced the course of the Sfax froni
the Cape Verde islands, which it left
"You see it cannot have passed the
Canary islands before yesterday. It
will not arrive here at the earliest
until Sunday, or perhaps Monday."
The perfect of police also told the
Associated Press representative that
he had not received any instructions
regarding Dreyfus. The French first
class cruiser Tage, now lying in the
harbor, has been instructed to put to
sea on Sunday evening, and It is
thought It has been ordered to meet
the Sfax and have Dreyfus transferred
to it. But Admiral Barrera says the
Tage is simply going to sea for the
purpose of experimenting with carrier
pigeons. No doubt a big crowd wi'
be present to witness the landing of
Dreyfus if he is allowed to be seen,
but no disorders are expected.
A detachment of secret police has
arrived here from Paris and has been
distributed about the town.
0XNARD ANSWERS HAYEMEYER.
Denies Many of His Statements Agrees'
With Blm oa Pew Points.
SAN FRANCISCO, June 24. Henry
T. Oxnard, president of the American
Beet Sugar Producers' association, has
prepared a reply to H. O. Havemeyer's
recent argument before the industrial
commission at Washington. He flat
ly denies many of Mr. Havemeyer's
statements and accuses that gentleman
of seeking to destroy the American
beet sugar industry in order to foster
the refineries that handle foreign raw
material, besides attempting to divert
public attention from the Sugar trust
by attacking the tariff.
In conclusion Mr. Oxnard says: "I
will not dispute Mr. Havemeyer's
claim that 10 per cent is sufficient pro
tection to the sugar refining Interests
which he represents, but I do assert
that he cannot make tha American
people believe that the industries of
this country and business prospered
during the years we were struggling
under the Wilson law, when the aver
age protection amounted to 40 per
cent ad valorem. If Mr. Havemeyer
had said that keen and losing compe
tition in business led to the forma
tion of tmsts he would be right, for
the tariff has nothing to do with the
formation of trusts."

Sheep Shearing Commences.
RAPID CITY, S. D., June 24. The
sheep shearing season has commenced
in those parts of the Hills where sheep
raising is carried on. It is rather late,
owing to the difficulty in getting
shearers as soon as they are needed.
The clip will be unusually large thl?
year on account of the cold winter
The sheep ranges are in a fine condi

already been brought in this season
and have commenced to fatten. The
prospects are that this will be the best
year for lambs that the Hills has seen
for some time.

fiETROlf , Mich., June 24. Governor
ftngreg gave out a pubiifi idtement
today to the effect that he had com
bined with Secretary Alger In the In
terests of Alger's senatorial candidacy.
General Alger will not withdraw under
any circumstances, nor will he spend
any money In the campaign. The plat
form of their campaign will be oppo
sition to trusts and senatorial elections
by A popular vote. The alliance was
made at a conference held last night,
it which several df the Pingree state
leaders and the general and the gov
ernor were present.
Said the governor: "I have avoided

asking him If I could not see him id
Detroit on his way back to Washing
ton. In reply he arranged to meet me
last evening. Of course I can't speak
for my friends, but those I have talked
with fire Alger men beyond all ques
tion. They cannot support Senator
McMillan. They certainly cannot bo
classed as friends of mine if they do.
They cannot forget eight years of po
litical history in a day, nor can they
live with the representatives of 'Judi
cious combinations' and unequal taxa
tion and pretend at the same time to
be friends of equal and just taxation
and foes to trusts.
"At our meeting last night General
Alger told us frankly the history of
his relations with Senator McMillan in
the matter of the senatorship. He has
dealt with General Alger the same a?
he has treated everyone who questiom
his ownership of the republican party.
"General Alger is in the race and to
stay to the end," said the governor,
"and you can say, in the strongest
English you can write, I am with him
heartily and I propose to do all I can
personally and with my friends to aid
his candidacy. As General Alger put
it to me, he will be a candidate if he
has assurances for no more than one
vote in the legislature. Alger Is on
the right side of the two greatest ques
tions of the day. I said to him that I
could not personally support a man
who would not declare himself on the
right side of those two public ques
tions. The two questions on which I
wanted to know his position are those
of trusts and election of United States
senators by direct vote of the people.
"I wish to say that the general h
absolutely sound on both these ques
tions. General Alger believes firmly
that United States senators should be
elected by direct vote of the people."
KINK IN IMMIGRATION LAW.
Judge Hanford Releases a Jap Arrested
by an Inspector.
SEATTLE, Wash., June 24. United
States Judge Hanford has rendered a
decision which raises an issue with
the Treasury department. He granted
a writ of habeas corpus to T. Yama
saka, a Japanese arrested by Immigra
tion Inspector Walker on the ground
of being a pauper and entering the
United States clandestinely.
Judge Hanford ruled that while the
courts have no jurisdiction to review
the act of the superintendent of im
migration, the Inspectors acting under
him, in excluding immigrants upon
their arrival, and before they have
been landed from the vessel, after an
Immigrant has entered the United
States and actually set foot upon its
soil and attained his liberty, he can
not be turned back except upon a ju
dicial inquiry into his right to remain
in the United States, and further held
that the law makes no provision for

understood that another application

tenor of Judge Hanford's decision it
is likely that Yamasaka will be
promptly discharged. In thct event
an appeal will be taken.

CHICAGO, June 24. The Record
says: The Canadian government will
open the Soulanges canal In August,
and by its operation) the cost of trans
porting' lake freights to tide water will
be reduced beyond the possibility of
profitable competition by any ether
The cost of transporting wheat via
the lakes and Erie canal will be re
duced one-half. The' same Is equally
true of all other products destined for
trans-Atlantic ports from the territory
tributary to the Great lakes. In this
enterprise the Canadian government
has expended over $62,000,000. Besides
this,-, there has been expended from
canal revenues (of repairs and better
ments enough ia make s) total ef $70
The United States-government hae"

It is generally accepted by shippers
that Liverpool makes the price of cash
wheat and that every cent saved on
the cost of delivering It at Liverpool
means that much more to be paid to
the owner of the wheat at the time It Is
sold and shipped. As tho saving on
wheat will be somewhere near S cents
a bushel, the added returns to the far
mer of the northwest for the slugle
item of wheat would In one year
amount to $6,000,000; on other exports
of his producing he would probably
save twice as much more In freight
charges. This, it Is thought, will ope
rate to open the eyes of the farmer
about the Great lakes to the Import
ance of a deep waterway to the Atlan
tic which would still further Increase
the value of his products.
While the northwest may contem
plate with gratification the prospect
of a new and cheaper water routa to
the Atlantic, New York Is beginning to
awaken from its long continued dis
regard of the requirements of western
commerce. Observant persons are
confident that New York city will lose
much of its enormous export shipping
business, which amounts to somewhere
near 150,000,000 bushels of grain an
nually. It is asserted in the highest
quarters that the rate to New York
city via the Erie canal cannot possi
bly be reduced to a figure that will
anywhere near meet the Montreal fig
ure, and if It be attemptel, the predic
tion is made that the Canadian charg
es will be reduced to 2 centc per bushel
or less for wheat

CLEVELAND, June 24. The rejec
tion by the street railway strikers'
mass meeting last night of the terms
of settlement unanimously approve
by the committee has put a new face
on the situation. The city authorities
are now openly preparing for trouble
and the board of control is now In
session considering means of protect
ing the company's property and pre
serving order. President Everett says
iat the company will run its cars and
have no more dealing with the strikers.
Police Director Barrett said: "We
are not going to wait for anything
more to happen, but prepare ourselves
to meet any emergency. Whether or
not it will be found necessary to call
for mllltla other than what the city
contains I cannot say.
"We cannot depend upon what police
force we have. Every possible thing
will be dene to prevent the recurrence
of such affairs as have taen place fre
quently on the streets of Cleveland
since the strike began."'
Perpetaatlon off the G A. R.
ST. LOUIS. June 24. The Post- Dis
patch says that at the next annual en
campment of the Grand Army of the
Republic, which will be the closing
one of the nineteenth century, a reso
lution will be introduced by an Illinois
member to perpetuate It and take Into
it the veterans of the navy, as well
as of the army.
It will be proposed to change the
name to "The Grand Army and Navy
of the Republic."
The resolution will call for the
amendment of the constitution so as
to admit all soldiers and sailors who
ever fought for the union, all who are
fighting for it now, and all who mav
hdreafter fight for the flag and the
principles which it represents.
The reason for the movement Is the
fact that the G. A. R. Is in the process
of speedy and certain ultimate extinc
tion, by reason of having nothing to
recruit from. It is probable that the
commander-in-chief will be memorial
ized to appoint a committee to consider
the proposition and take the necessary
steps to change the name and consti
tution at the next encampment
Monster Order for Ralls.
PITTSBURG. June 24. The Com
mercial Gazettee says: The Carnegie
Steel company has contracted with
representatives of the Russian govern
ment to furnish that country with
180,000 tons of steel rails for Its Im
mense railroad enterprises in Siberia
and China. This, it is said, is the
largest order ever placed with one
firm In the world and represents an
outlay of between $4,500,000 and $5,
000,000. In filling the order 200.000
tons of pig Iron will be consumed and
profitable employment will be insured
to all the rail mill workmen of the
concern for the next two and a half
years. Members of the firm here re
fuse to confirm or deny the above.

DENVER, June 24. The managers
of the smelters owned by the Ameri
can Smelting and Refining company
are still conferring and arranging
labor scales, while the strikers are
quietly awaiting overtures. It is cou
ceded by both sides to the controversy
resulting from the operations of the
new eight-hour law that nothing
stands between the managers and the
men that cannot be arranged in an
hour and the resumption of operations
at the smelters is not likely to be de
layed beyond a few days or weeks.

COLOMBO. Island of Ceylon. June
23. The United States cruiser Olym
pia, with Admiral Dewey on board,
which arrived here at 6 o'clock In the
morning, saluted the port at 8 and the
forts replied. Admiral Dewey landed
at 11 o'clock and proceeded by special
train to Kohdy. He will remain in
Ceylon about a week. The admiral
says he had a good voyage from Singa
pore and that his health Is fairly good.
His reception here was not marked

returned by Admiral Dewey at 11
o'clock. He was received at the jetty
by a guard of honor, and. amidst cheer

to breakfast with Colonel Savage. The
admiral afterward booked rooms at
the Galleface hotel and returned on
board the Olympla at 1 o'clock. There
he received a deputation representing
the Planters'assoclation and the cham

with a sliver casket and an address

of welcome, said he wished he could
reply In adequate terms, reciprocating
the sentiments expressed. But, he ad

said he deeply appreciated the wel

have the very acceptable present of
tea distributed as desired. Incidentally
mentioning that he was a lifelong tea

"That cheer raised on the jetty when
I landed went to the hearts of all of
us. We are 14,000 miles from home,
but that cheer will be heard in Amer
ica although the way in which it has
touched me I shall never be able to
fully express. The two nations were
never so closely allied by mutual sym
pathy and appreciation a now. The
American people realized this during
the late war, and you can imagine how
all those who were at Manila and met
Sir Edward Chichester (commander of
the British first class cruiser Immor
talite), and his gallant comrades hold
that feeling very deeply."
A general conversation followed,
and after toasting the "Anglo-Saxon
Union" and the prosperity of the two

President McKinley has decided to call
