and personal Influence Is belim wielded upon
Secretary Manning to Induce him to t'hanirc
his determination to retire from the cabinet
and to remain. He ha ? , It Is stated , firmly
totil the president that ho positively does not

n writing to their attorneys liere about their
wants at the treasury department otacrvo
that their business has not diminished bv the
operation of the new law regxilatlng It. They
report a diminution of the number of dealers
nnd makers , but say the number o consum
ers has not grown less.
It is said by the lawyers who arc looking
after the business of the oleo men that what
is necessary to decrease the manufacture of
the article Is an amendment to the law re-
uliiiiK hotel keepers to mak known
io fact that they use It. They say
that the great hulk of the article is sold
to keepers of public hostelries. Evidently
this move Is contemplated bv the manufac-
tuiers , and It will be heartily supported by
the statesmen who do not keep house in
Washington. If there Is not an amendment
ot the character indicated , it is believed that
there will be a boycott of the hotels which do
not show conclusively that they use only
pure butter. It looks as though the worst had
not como to the oleo men. The law has
hardly had a chauco to make an effect ,

ST. Louis , Sept , 23. The crowds to seethe
grand parade , which was postponed from
Tuesday , and which takes place to-day , were
on the streets early , but were much smaller
than any previous day this week. The mornIng -
Ing broke clear and warm. Last night's and
this morningtialns carried away many
knights and visitors , although the exodus was
not sufllciently large to diminish the crowds
very much which tiironccd the line of march.
At the knights' grand encampment meet
ing yesterday , the report of tlie committee on
creilentlals was referred to back to the com
mittee for corrections. The regrets of the
Charleston commanilery were toad and the
attention of the committee of finance called
to the deplorable condition of their brethren
In that city. The report of the committed on
jurisprudence regarding certain amendments
was scad and spread upon the minutes.
The amendment to strike out ot
the vow of olllco the words "and code of stat
utes" was lost. Tlio proposition to change
the qualifications for membership In the
order of knighthood was laid upon the table.
The amendment to ch.ingo the clause of the
constitution empowering the grand encamp
ment to designate tlie time and place ol
tint next encampment by substituting "Thu
encampment shall be held In the City ol
Washington , 1) . C. , In the month of Decem
ber , at such tlmo In said month as the L'raml
master may dictate , " was voted down "by a
large majority , as also the proposition tc
abolish the parade nnd make the grand en
campments purely business.
The weather was very hot for tlio parade ,
with only a slight breeze. All members ot
the comiimiidcr-In-chlef's staff were on hand
and but few changes In the original pro
gramme were made necessary. The rankaml
lilo comprised less knights than would have
formed in line had the parade occuired when
first advertised , but nearly every
commanilery announced to participate was
represented. Some slight changes had been
made In the already profuse decorations , anil
those damaged by bad weather Tuesday
hint been restored. The different command

BKATUICK , Neb. , Sept. 21 [ Editorial
Correspondence of the BKK. " | The con
test which has just culminated in the
ominationof Church Howe will bo ono
f the most memorable of its kind in tint
olitinal history of Nebraska. The com-
at in itself was comparatively insiguili-
: ant were it not for its far-reaching
ionsequenees. The outcome involved
ot only the candidates engaged ,
ut the success or defeat of Se.nator Van
iVyek and the Douglas county candidate
or irovurr.or , Henry T Clarke , besides
mashing slates for several minor candl-
ales. The bragadoclo with which
llmrcli Howe entered the campaign and
he blare of trumpets with which he pro-
laimed himself victorious in his transit
'roni county to county , doubtless had its
jfl'eot upon timid and time-serving politi-
uitis , but the well informed rivals of
lowe in the field were not deceived as to
lis strength. When the three * op-
osing candidates , Weaver , Council and
Toft , canvassed the .situation in the third
story of the C5rand Central last
night , they felt perfectly at case. They
counted from seventy to seventy-five fol
lowers who were determined to beat the
jonunon enemy , and they had assurances
.hat the Sarpy county delegation , and at
.east nine or ten of the Otoe delegation ,
ivotild join the field against Howe , which
ivoiild have given the field a clean
majority and several votes to snare. _ A
.riplo alliance , offensive and defensive ,
ivas agreed upon with the understanding
hat one of the three candidates in
.he field should have the entire vote
of the opposition whenever it could
" ) o safely pooled. The Douglas delnga-
.ion met in the Knights of Pythias hall in
.he morning and organized for the fray.
Everv delegate present was outspoken in
favor of standing by Council as long as
there was any chance of his nomination.
About 11 a. m. they were joined by the
Jass and Sauuders county delegates , who
appeared if anything more determined to
.lown Howe than this Douglas county
.non. . When they wore reinforced later
n the afternoon by the Hichardson dele
gation and half of Johnson county dele
gation the roll was called and every dele-
'ate prerent was pledged in writing lo
light it out on that line if it took all
night. The kev of the position was held
by Sarpy and Otoo counties. The live
delegates of Sarpy were mot by Church
Howe on their arrival last night and
quartered by him at his headquarters in
the Randall. They were as follows : Harry
Clarke , the son of Henry T. Clarke , of
Omaha ; Arthur Spearman , A. II. Empy ,
Henry Gursch and J. D. Knell. Clarke ,
who headed the delegation , was inter
viewed by Messrs. Urny and Colpet/.or ,
who served with him in the last legisla
ture. He was somewhat boozy and
showed a disposition to resent as an in
sult the invitation to join the opponents
of Howe who , he said , was as honest
ami reputable as anybody. He. was kept
pretty much in the same condition of half
drunkenness throughout the entire day.
Young Spearman declared that he was
for Howe because the Missouri Pacific ,
through Howe , had done him a good
many favors in the shape of passes and
rebates. Empy was entirely under the
inlluence ot Clark , while Gusch
and Sncll professed that they
were grangers anil had nothing
in common with Howe. Still they
declined to go into tlio-anti-Howe caucus
and in spite of the promises of John
Clarke for his "pa , " they cast their votes
with Howe and liis gang from first to
The Otoe county delegates arrived late
in the afternoon and Schminkc , who is
recognized as Van Wyck's lieutenant ,
pledged at least eight of the delegation
to the anti-Howe forces. In spite of this
there was much uneasiness caused by a re
port that the delegation had caucussed by
themselves and agreed to support Howe
solidly. I implored Schminko and other
Otoe delegates , in the interests of Van
Wyck , to stand with his friends and to
help defeat the Nemaha fraud whose
nomination was sure to bring disaster to
Van Wyck by placing him and Ins friends
in a false position. Schminke himself
renewed his promises while others of the
delegation , who professed to bo special
friends of Van Wyck , declared
they knew what they were doing
and oven insolently scouted the idea that
Van Wyck had any further need of sup
port from this quarter. Just as Howe s
brass band had reached the opera house
1 overheard Schminke in . the street
pledge to Church Howe the whole Otoe
delegation. For the first time then I became -
came convinced that there was treachery
and sell out in the camp of Van Wyck's
Otoo delegation , and the outcome con
firmed the conclusion.
Church Howe had made grand propava-
tions for his boom. Having carried the
Cui'io county primaries by the help of the
Holly water works gang and Kilpatrick's
railroad graders he followed up his
method by packing the opera house with
n lot of hired hoodlums who were
all provided in advance witli
a lot of admission tickets.
The brass band blow themselves black in
the face , the fellows who carried the
transparency with "No Hosowater in
Ours" were shouting themselves
when the convention was called to order
by Tom Kennard , whoso bland smile re
minded mo of the olden days when Tom
was coparcener with Bill Stout in the
state real estate distribution at Lincoln.
Tom gave way as temporary chairman to
the notorious railroad capper , Humphrey ,
who , in inking the gavel , bawled
his profound thanks to the convention
for the honor. By the vote which elected
Humphrey , the last hope of the coalition
against Howe was gone. The proceed
ings that followed were a roaring farce ,
Nominating speeches were made to gn
through the form. Henry Estabrook's
great effort for Council was a surprise ,
' 1 huso who listened say they could not
tell to the end whether Henry was going
to nominate Howe or Council. Ik
slobbered all over his deat
friend Howe , and then endeil
by apologizing for Hosowater , who
didn't need any apology at his hands. As
soon as Howe was nominated lie nulled

illdcall some wheat loans , but this was the
result of a general call ami not because
wheat was not a satisfactory security. There
was a dispatch that there was a wheat
blockade at Minneapolis and that loaded cars
were struiic along tor nine tulles out. Still
another dispatch said there was a glut at

Mlttinnii'.s Story.
This morning's HIK : contained n tele
graphic reference lo the shooting of
Durham at Millard last night. Tliis
uorning Deputy ShorilV Urebo went to
ho scene , ami taking C. Mittinan , the
nan wlio did the shooting , into custody ,
rouglit him to this city anil had him
oeked ii ] > ! n the county jail. Ho was Ihoro
icon by a KKK reporter this morning.
Mlttman , is a largo , heavy German ,
ivitli : > mild round set of features , trim-
il with moustache and goatee. Ho
nude no trouble in giving his version of
ho story , which is plausible and ovl-
lently worthy of credence , because he
bears upon ono of his eyes a fearful
[ iroof of having bpun beaten in the affray.
" 1 keep a saloon at Millard , " ho said
tvliero I nave resided for nboul thirteen
months. 1 used formerly to live in
Omaha. Last night about five
o'clock Durham and Cole came into my
place. They wanted me to give them a
Irink. Now Durham had boon to my
place several times and 1 had given him
credit , but 1 had notgot paid , and linado
no my mind not to give him nor any of
liis friends anything on credit. Because.
, vhy should t do it ? You trust a railroad
nborcr and there is nobody to pay for
tun if lie skips away , because the con-
ractors . ay thov will not be responsible
'or any debts run by laborers , bo I told
. 'nil that I onlv spoke once. and that I
mil told him 'before ho could not get
Irink without money.
"Last week 1 went lo Omaha and bofoio
roing I told my daughter not to give
Durham nor anv other person drink with
out paying for it. While I was gone
Durham anil Cole went to my saloon ,
jisked for drink , and my daughter , who
was seventeen years of ago , tolit them
what 1 had told her , and refused to give
them liquor. They then said
tlmy would help themselves
and were going behind the bar wh'Mi my
wife intcrforcilnnd they went away. "
"Now , last night , they came around
again , after what they had done before ,
and again annoyed mo about drinks ,
which i always refused. They became
angrv , and Durham finally asked me
for "M cents to pay his way to
Papillion , because both ho and Cole
are working on the It. & M. grade right
near t'lis ' place. 1 tolil him I would not
give him the twenty-live cents , and both
of tiiem became angry. My daughter
screamed anil urged me to tro into the
bacji room because she says who heard
them say they would kill mo.
1 was leaning on the end of the
counter nt the time , my back
being toward the end of the bar. Cole
got behind mo , put his arms around my
neck and pnlloir mc-'down on the lloor
and then Durham stamped mo in my
eye , as you sue , with the heel of his boot.
I struggled upward and was. pushed out
into the dining room , when Durham _ -
ham attempted to get behind
the bar to seize. a bottle
of whisky. Sly wife headed him oft' and
he struck her a powerful blow on the
forehead , and she has a big lump there
now. I was now struggling with Cole ,
and forced myself out and caught hold
of a sodawater box , Illicit with bottles ,
which I held on to and pulled myself uv
behind the bar and grasped my re
volver. Durham then came at me
with a knife and both of them forced mo
in the corner , and in raising my hand to
ward oft' his knife blows , the revolver
went olt'nnd shot him through the throat.
1 was in a dangerous corner and the
next instant I felt that Du nun's knife
would have killed mo. "
Excursionists Into Neuraslca Other
Jt has been many a day since Omaha
has witnessed such an influx of home-
seekers sound for western Nebraska as
occurred this morning. The occasion
was the harvest excursion , at reduced
rates , for the benefit of those who want
to locate in the west. The Hock Island
nnilNorthwcstorn trains together brought
in about eight hundred people , while the
" " in several hundred
"Q" brought more
who were taken west on the B. & M" . from
Oreapolis in a train ot twenty-one cars.
The Hock Island and Northwestern pas-
seniors wore transferred to the Union
Pacific overland No. U , which was hold
ono hour and a half wailing for the
Northwestern train. This train had
been unavoidably delayed in Iowa.
Most of those passengers were bound
for points in interior and western Ne
braska , and the majority of them will
doubtless locate in the state. Another
"harvest excursion'1 will occur before the
approach of winter.

dozen men were engaged in lowering
from a truck to the sidewalk , a large
