For wwral'weahe past, friends of

the opinion now that he will not be en

The latest in war news comes from
Seoul dated March 6. The Japanese
Steamship company's vessels of the
Osaki line have resumed passenger ser
vice between Kobe and Chemulpo. Its
first steamer, the Chikago Own Mara,
arrived at Chemulpo today, carrying
foreigners among its passengers, inclad-
ing Americans of both sexes, in addition
to Japanese. A reference to the map
showing the proximity of 'Port Arthur,
the great Russian Asiatic naval base to
Chemulpo, shows even to the uninform
ed the really wonderful success which
the Japanese now have won by cleaning
both the sea of Japan and the Yellow
sea of the enemy, who twenty days ago
unhesitatingly claimed naval superiority.
Today Japanese steamers sail both seas
unprotected by accompanying warships.
The resamption of commercial inter
course is necessarily incomplete, because
the Japanese government has chartered
many transports and therefore steamers
A bill has been introduced in the

of the farmers in Iowa are renters, and

of this city, had an experience in a heavy
storm on seaout from Tacoma, the night
of January 18th that he will no doubt
remember for many years. The steamer
Elwood on which he was riding became
lost in a blinding snow, and fortunately
drifted onto n sand bar with but a few
hundred dollars damage to the vessel.
The Tacoma Ledger in referring to an
interview had with Mr. Kohler, who was
on his way to Seattle, says: "Mr. Kohler
said the passengers behaved in a most
sensible manner. There was no signs of
a panic, but all were anxious to do their
little in assisting the captain and crew.r

Platte lifeT lifts.
Tuesday of last week was so warm and
spring like, that the ice in the rivers
started to break and gave indications of
an overflow. The water in the Platte did
more damage up stream than below us,
as much of the ice gorged on the north
side of the river where the Loup joins
At Grand Island, the railroad bridge,
at Chapman, Clarke, Silver Creek and
Central City the wagon bridges are all
reported badly damaged by the ice and
unfit for travel. The bridge at Central
City went out about 5 o'clock Tuesday
morning, and by tl o'clock that evening
the ice had gorged south of Columbus
and carried away seven spans of the
wagon bridge. Two more were taken
out Wednesday morning, making nine
spans in all to be repaired. The most
damage done to the bridge is on the
north end. Water overflowed the banks
into the pastures, but no great damage
has been done to property.
At the Loup river railroad bridge, all
day Wednesday workmen watched the
structure and blasted the ice with dyna
mite on the north side of the bridge, but
the ice had not yet broken up stream,
and is still in the river.
The B. & M. railroad bridge was close
ly watched all day Wednesday, escaping
undamaged, but is still to stand the
strain of the ice from the Loup.
The greatest damage reported along
the Platte was from Fremont to Mercer,
where high water has flooded the country
since Thursday, and has not yet subsided.
Nick Schreiber, an extensive stock dealer,
east of Fremont, estimates his loss of
stock at $10,000. Other farmers have
lost animals and small buildings by being
washed out by the flood.
The Union Pacific company was com
pelled to run its trains over the North
western tracks from Omaha to Fremont
until Sunday, when it was cut off from
that source by the breaking down of the
Northwestern railroad bridge over the
Elkhorn river between Arlington and
Fremont, thus cutting Fremont off from
communication from all points east.
The Union Pacific has several bad
breaks between Fremont and Valley due
to the overflow of the Platte river "that
have not been repaired. The bridge at
Arlington has not collapsed but ia weak
ened by the breaking and sagging of
weak timbers. Some of the Union Pacific
engines are heavier than any the
Northwestern uses, and their weight is
largely responsible for putting the struc
ture out of service.

burned brands were not carried across
that could not be controlled.
