\VASiuxrn ox , March 15. [ Special Tele-
fcramjto tlio BBE.J The Internal rcvcnuo
ofllco Is greatly hampered In Its elf mis to en
force tlio oleomargarine law by lack of funds
to employ a Bulllclent number of men. Tlio
failure ot tlio dellclency bill has rendered It
Impossible to placn additional men on the
Olcomargarlno force for the present. Tim
bill contained nn Item of S30.0CO for tlio pur
pose , which Commissioner Miller Intended
to dlvldo among tlio Internal revenue dis
tricts , Hols of opinion that the employment
of additional men would bo nn cconomlco
nova on the part of the covornment. The
nddltlonal amount of taxes collected
Tpotild pay for their services and
leave a handsome balance. There
Is no specific appropriation lor the enforce
ment of the oleomargarine net for the next
fiscal year , but some provision will bo mr.de
fey which tlio law can bo inoni rigidly un
forced. The estimates of the commissioner
wore cut down S r > ,00u. it was thu intention
tomakoa cut of 8100,000 , but the commis
sioner Is of the opinion that the S2.ooo dif
ference was Intended to bo applied to the
olcomaruarlnn force. Commissioner Miller
Bays that with this stun ho will be enabled
to clvo the collector of the district In which
oleomargarine is mannlactured a number of
nddltlonal men , and he expects returns from
tills tax will ho , In consequence , much larger
during the next liscal year.
TIIK NATIONAL , HAII.noAn COMMISSION.
The president Is still undetermined as
to full personnel of the Inter-state

lie hopes to reach a conclusion some tlmo
this week. There are probably five or six
luindrcd persons who have made application
Cor places on the commission , and among
them ore as many republicans as democrats.
In making his selection of two republicans to

really a better list to select from than that

The Haddock Murder CAMCS to Com
mence the Twenty-Third.
Sioux CITV , la. , March 15. [ Special Tele
gram to the UEK.J Contrary to general ex
pectation the attorneys for the state to-day
advised the com t , when the matter came up
for determination which of the defendants
In the Haddock cases should bo tried first ,
that It had been'determined by them to try
John Arensdorf first It was supposed that
Arensdorf would bo tried last and Granda or
anyone of the others first. Some surprise Is
naturally occasioned by this announcement ,
especially In vlovr ot thn fact that at the tlmo
the cases were sot for trial the attorneys for
the defense requested that Arensdorf bo
tried first , but this was oblccted to bv the
prosecution. Owing to the fact that Attor
ney O'Connell Is busily engaged on an im
portant case elsewhere , the county attorney
asked that the commencement of the cases
be postponed until Wednesday , the U3d ,
which as granted. On that day , then ,
Arensdorf will bo placed on trial for llfu.

THE CONNECTING LINK.
The Omaha & Council niuflfe Bridge
Co , Incoralcd.
The first tangible stop that has boon
taken looking to the much-needed im
provement iu the matter of transporta
tion between Omaha .and Council Bluffs
was the filing In the county clerk's ofllco
yesterday attcrnoon of the articles of in
corporation of the Omnha & Council
Itlufl's Railroad nnd Bridge Co. A num
ber of such companies have been formed
from tlmo to tiuio but have failed to do
nny actual work. The present organiza
tion is formed to meet the dotniuuls of
the business men and the residents of
both cities for better transportation fa
cilities. The incorporators of the com
pany are Guy C. litirlon , J. II. Millard ,
and Krank Murphy , of Omaha , and T. J.
Evans , John T. Stuwart and George F.
Wright , of Council Hluils. Thu object of
the urguui/ation is set forth as the con-
struetldn ot a bridge across the Missouri
river between the cities of Omaha and
Council lilull's , nnd the operation thereon
of a public road and a steam motor , ca
ble , elevated , electric , lioivo or other
railway. The capital stock is $000,000
with an authorized capital of
? 1,000,000. The board of directors shall
consist of not less than eight
stockholders nor more than fourteen , ono
half of whom must reside iu Council
"Of course wo moan business , " s.iul
one of the incorporators , when questioned
by a reporter yesterday. "Tho company
is formed under the bill that was recently
passed by congress authorizing the con
struction of tlio bridge. Tlio schoino has
been ripe in Council Blnfl's for some time
and the stock will bo taken at short no
tice. Already the Council I ) luffs council
lias ordered tlio grading and paving of
Uroadway to the river in anticipation of
this movement. Of the character of the
bridge nothing very ilntinllo has been de
cided upon. It will assuredly bo built how
ever , and will bo built of a character to
accomodato a wagon way and whatever
struct car , cable or other lines wo may
decide to operate , between the two cities.
That it will pay wo have no doubt , per
haps not largely in n direct way , but in
an indirect manner every property owner
in cacli city will bo greatly bcnclitted.
Work will bo commenced just as soon as
a few more preliminaries arrangements
have been made. "

I have been in jjio ( plegraph business
for more than twenty years , and for the
past five years ha > bcon troubled with
what is called Wi'itcrb' Cramp or Tele
grapher's Paralysis. At times my arm
became so weak tllatTfcould not use it in
sending dispatche'ji , arfd had to use my
left. Have spent many'.restless nights , the
pain reaching froiuuiy.iJiand up into my
shoulder. Tried everything 1 could hear
of , but with scarcely'aMy relief. Having
strained my left 'sido'a few weeks ago , I
pot ono of ALLCOCK'4i'ASTr.us , as i usu
ally do in such cases , and accidentally
happened to sod wliero some ono had
cured a weak wrist by using ono of these
Plasters. I got another one at once and
cut it in two and put one-half around niy
wrist. In loss than two days after the
pain had entirely left my wrist and arm ,
and in two weeks I could scud nearly as
well as over. I write this hoping it will
reach the eyes of others who may bo af
flicted as was , as 1 kuow there are scores
of them. W. 8. CASSULL.
