PARIS , November 10 , IQp.'ra It is
given out thai the cabinet will hold a
meeting to-niqht to decide upon the
question of their resignation. It is
now believed the "ministry will with
draw the notification pUccd in the
hands of President Grevy , and c
tinue in office at least temporarily.
Reasons for this , it is understood , in
elude the urgent request of President
Grevy. It is certain that Gimbetta
will not accept an office. A feeling
exists that a vote will bo taken in the
chambers canable of an explanation
consistent with the relation of power
between M. Ferry aad hh coadjutor * .
The republiian press consider the vote
in the chamber yesterday duo to a
misunderstanding , and that the min
istry aolei with inconsiderate haste in
construing it as a want of confidence.
The conservatives maintain that th
cabinet fell from a want of cohesion ,
and accuse it of having pursued a hes
itating and incongruous policy thai
was csrlain to end in destruction. The
radicals ara loud in demanding a dis
solution ol tae chambers and & forma
tion of a new cabinet , and the opinion
is gaining ground that the crisis will
end as the radicals pray that it may.

Cattle Grazing Growing to
Immense Proportions in
Western Nebraska.
Many Herds Will be Wintered
in the Cornfields of
- * - the Platte.
Correspondence of The l > eo.
SID > KY , Nob. , November 8. Wea-
tsrn Nebraska is to-day one immense
cattle field , and the business of cattle
grazing is prosecuted with greaf profit.
The cattle are wintered with very lit
tle expense and the freight charges
for transporting them to market are
much leas than from moro western
fields. At this season of the year cattle
tlo are being shipped as fast as cars can
be found to carry them away. North
Platte , Ogalalla and Sidney , are the
great shipping points on the U. P , in
Nebraska. The midsummer was very
dry and the grass very short and scant ,
till-fall set hi. In consequence many
cattle are too thin for shipment and
will be kept over for another year.
In a wet season cattle find surface
water on the high land , which , with
the aid of small streamlets running
from the hill country to the rivers ,
supply water for the stock several
iveeks in summer , but this year the
small stiearns and surface ponds were
dry and the cattle have been pastured
along the rivers nnd larger streams all
the season. Now the best grass is
found on the high land and the bottom
tom landsare almost hire. There are
eery few first-class shippers , the cat
tle men Bay , and there was never
much better prospects for good winter
Feel. Some stockmen are not ship
ping any this year , and some are driv
ing their saleable cattle to the corn
: ountry to be fed. The shippers from
North Platte this year nra M. C.

The politicians of western Nebras
ka have been working very energet-
icilly this year , for their pjlitical fel-
Iowa in some cases , but more ofier for
local pbtd. The canvass was divested
of party strictures and party lines cut
no figure at the p ills. Democrats
worked for republicins and rbpubli-
cans worked for democrats , where
they thousht it better suited their
purpose. The Sidney Telegraph , a
democratic paper , worked for Snyder ,
a republican candidate , and the North
Platta Republican worked for Samuel
Watts , a democrat. Church , tha op
ponent of Watts , was detested by sev
enty-one votes , though the electoral
ticket showed his district to be repub
lican by 110 votes. Railroad men
tooka great deal of interest in the
cinvas , but it was a ksing game fnr
them. Watts , the Lincoln county
representative-elect , ia one of Nebras
ka's pioneers who enjoya the full con
fidence of hia neighbors and ia per
sonally very popular. Henry Snj der ,
U. P. a eut at Sidney , is thought to
be elected to the Nebraska asnate
from this district , though it is not an.
ftbioliito coiiiiinty.
These iowni are all holding their
own , an3 North Plalte ia very much
improving. Two fine brick blocks
hive been built this year , besides a
number of dwellings. Tno stock yards
at North PLtte are kept very busy

Ically that he has no lot or pait in the

a opposed to tbo agitation. Ha says

There ii considerable inquiry touch-

leclines the senatorial office , and this
nill create a prospective vasancy ,

ROBS , the road acut : , now serving
a tea years' sentence in the Nebraska
tate prison , at Lincoln , IB a criminal
of more than ordinary boldness and
cunning. The ingenious contrivances
or escaping from prison which were
recently captured in hia possession ,
; ive evidence of remarkable mechani-
al skill and inventive rosonrco. Sher-
ffDraperand Dof5uty Martin noticed a
teculisr move on the part of some of
he prisoners when locking them up
or the nu > ht. Determined oa learn-
ng the canao of the strange conduct ,
Sheriff Draper went into the cage to
examine the cells. He then discovered
hat Wellajtraj in Ross' cell.contrary to
orders , and several other changes had
> een made. An investigation was
hen made , and a wooden key was
ound in the lining of Ross' coat tall ,
which had been made rf a piece of
iroom handle by a small , dull knife
) lade , and ti aavr which had been fash-
oned out of the stcul skanLs in Roas *
> oots. Two one-inch bars of the cage
were found to have been sawed almost
hrough and the cracks filled up with
oap. In the cell , concealed among
he bed clothing , was a rope twelve
eat long , which had been made of
he bandages placed on the wounds of
a prisoner named Pnco. The rope is
a marvel -workmanship ; a perfect
rope and very strong. Thn prisoners
afterwards told the nhcnlF that thay
lad perfected their platu to escape
hat very uiglit on which their plot
was discovered When a thorough
earch had been completed tto sheriff
and deputy changed thu locks on their
cells. Rosa and Wells made no fur-
her attempt to brei't ' jail. But Ross
lid not give up the idea of escaping ,
'or ' , after bis sentoncc , bo laid anoth
er plan , which almost succeeded. He
made a cair of keys out of the brass
> ack of a comb , which would unlock
iis InndcafFi like a charm. He
iad also sawed nearly through the
rons en hii ankles and filled up the
caps with snap. Snwed up In the
) ottom of the boson of hii flinnel
hirt were found the twu brasa keys
mentioned abov > > , a saw made cf a
> iuce of steel an inch long , which was
aatened in a piece of wood , and a nail
and some string. RI.SA' plan of es
cape was completely spoiled by chang-
ng the shackled and handcuffs , and
aking from him the kejs and saw.

Ross' crowning work waa the wood
en key already alluded to. It was
ma < ? e of iho top of a brr > rim handle ,
and unlocked the big jitl lock as nicu-
y as ha proper key. How he over
; ot the richtgrofViia and buvels is a
mystery ; butp rhspiho to * k an im-
iresilon with a piece of snap There
s also seen an ingenious lamp , made
much like the "witch" of our boy-
lood days. It in nothing moro than a
lollow vessel filled with tat and grease
which the prisoners partd fJom their
meat and butter , and a wick made of
a rag. ThiR wa ? osed by tha culprits
at night. L'ghu of nil kinds in jail
are positively prohibited by the fiber
s' . The "witch" is n inganious con
trivance to avoid this prohibition.
