continued. "The number of bodies awaiting
the verdict of a coroner's jury Is hourly in
creasing. Our force , which Is too small even
tor ordinary purposes , is not large enough

H , victim of heat and plead tor an early certifi

been there before and begs that an Inquest
be held as soon as possible as the body is be
ginning to decay. Coroners' deputies go out
ti tliuir sail mission , each with a list of from
ten to twenty places to visit. Above ail the
commotion can be heard the almost constant
ringing of the telephone bell , each ring pre
ceding the news of another death. Even the
name of the victim Is not now taken , simply
the place where the body lies.

WASIIINOTO.V July 18. [ Special Telegram
to the BKK. I President Cleveland as a letter
writer Is becoming moro and more a failure.
A short time auo there arrived In Washing
ton by way of the Pacltic coast from New
South Wales an artist named A. Hoberto
Pttllln. Ho had been commissioned by an
artists' club of Sidney , composed of some six
hundred members , to present to Mrs. Cleve
land on their behalf a painting Illustrative of
Australian scenery. On coming to Wash
ington Mr. Pullln wrote to President Cleve
land stating the facts and asking that ho ac
cept the painting for Mrs. Cleveland. In the
letter Mr. Pullln took occasion to speak ot
the respect which the people of Australia en
tertained for the people of the United States
and expressing the hope that thu two coun
tries might become moro closely united In
their friendship and become more and moro
a blessing to the world.
Imagine the feelings ot Pullln when , after
waiting a week , ho received a cold , formal
reply trom the president declining the pies-
ent , the tone of his letter being about the
same that Cleveland would use toward an
otlico seeker that was trying to bribe him
with a present. The artist could not do oth
erwise than sit down and write bacn how
greatly mortified lie telt that an act Intended
to draw the respect which a toreian associa
tion entertained for the people of the great
American republic should bo so coldly
treated , lie felt sure that his fellow Austra
lians could not do otherwise than leel put
out by the snub administered to them.
Don't Want Hawaii.
WASHINGTON , July 18. [ Special Telegram
to the BEK. | Officials of the department of
state say that there Is not a remote prospect
of the establishment of a protectorate over
the Hawaii Islands by any European power.
They base this belief upon the knowledge
that not one of the powers would submit to
the acquisition of the Islanders by any of the
others. These gentlemen say that the inten
tion of the revolutionists Is not to depose
Kalakaua entirely and therein they are
thought to be wise , under the existing state
of allalrs In the Islands it would bo impossi
ble that they could be admitted Into the
United States. The state department people
think that there would be no objection
raised to this on the part ot any of the Euro
pean governments , but the only manner In
which the Islands could bo taken Into the
union would be either as a lull Hedged state
or a territory with a representative govern
ment , as the population is composed to a
laivu extent ot ignorant natives , Chinese
and Poituguese , with only about . ' .00 whites.
It would bo against the policy of this country
to admit such a population into lull citizen

WASIIINOTO.V , July 18. The commissioner
of patents has rendered an Important deci
sion In the case of the application to register
a trade mark for distilled spirits In which the
words "Knights of Lahoi" and "K. of L. "
distillery appear. The commissioner states
that the re is no pretense that the manufac
turers of this particular brand ot whisky who
beek to register the trade mark are Knights
of Labor or are engaged in business with
them or under their auspices , yet the distinc
tion uoints to this labor organization or to
members as a class | as the origin of the own
ership of the article to which It is applied. In
other words thu proposed trade mark is In
the nature of false representation and de-
coptlou as to the general public , possibly In
ducing them to purchase an article under the
belief that It Is manufactured by a society In
which they have a friendly interest. The
commissioner , therefore , on the ground of
the false pretenses ot such trade mark , ie-
tubes Its registration.

LINCOLN , Neb. , July 18. Special Tele
gram to the UKU I The corcmor's ' Jury re
sumed work to-day In the examination of
witnesses concerning the recent It. & M.
wreck near Havrclock cast of Lincoln. A
large number of people were ntesent as In-
tcicsted spectators and the Inquiries were
closely made by Jttdce Mason. F. M. Hall ,
one of the li. & M. attorneys , and Superin
tendent D. E , Thompson , were prevent dur
ing the mornlim hours of tlm session. The
fneman of Engineer Howset's onclno
was on the stand for some time
and his testimony corroborated En
gineer Bowser in every particular. Hu
testified positively that there was no signal
light to stop out at Havrelock when the en
gine passed the station and that after noting
no signal he put more fuel in the furnace.
Ho thought that as soon as Engineer
Dowser located the headlight In front as an
approaching train , that lie used every elTort
to stop. He also agreed with the others
In testifying that the car that caught
'ire was the ono occupied by Dr. Kan-
( all and son , and it burned , so rapidly that
t was Impossible to assist the man on ac
count of tlio heat. The tireman test I lied that
he air brake on the engine was not In good
ivorklng order , nnd that Howscr had called
ittentlon of Salisbury , who has charge of tlio
jlncoln round house , that the brake would
ot work well.
The torward brakeman on tills train was
njured In the wreck , but lie was bromrht to
he room and gave his testimony , which con-
.radlcted a good deal ot the rest. Hu agteud
vith the engineer and fireman in testitving
hat there was no red light displaseil nt
Invelock. Ho was positive ol that. He had
ictoro reaching liavelock , noted tlio head-
Ightdown the track , but supposed It was a
rain on the sldlne. After passing Havelock
uid seeing no dancer signal ho went from
he toil of thn train into the engine and was
here when the train struck. He did not
hink the engineer shut oil steam or whistled
or brakes. This testimony agreed with the
inglneer and lireman's , that thute were no
Ignals out , while the opeiator and boy in
he oltlce testified that the signal was oiitand
he conductor and rear brakeman testified
hat when the way car pissed the station the
ed signal was out. It seemed to bit a quite
enerat opinion tli.it the .signal was turned
ftiir the engine had passed nnd before the
ivay car reached the depot , or to those who
ave not formed conclusions the testimony
f the operator on duty for the hist time on
lie road and the young man in the olllce
, vith him is to bo weighed against the engi
neer's testimony , a man ot seven years' ox-
lerlence as an engineer on the Chicago , liur-
Ington & Quincy line , supported bv the
urther testimony of his fireman and head
irakeman. During the forenoon the jurv
'allcd ' back a number of the wit
nesses and questioned them ro-
ardlnrSJ the hours work thev had to
o and how hard they were worked by the
: ompany. The evldonco was mengic In that
uspect and Trainmaster Uignell was placed
in the stand tor the same purpose. Mr.
: Mfnell's testimony was that trainmen were
never overworked , that some of tlio way
> elght runs kept crews on duty twelve or
hirteen hours , while other runs were much
ihorter. Mr. lili-nell could not remember of
any train crows that were worked longer
Mian this time.
In fact Engineer Bowser's testimony of the
day before was that he went on duty at

trainmen on the regular train that Dr. Kan
dall and his car weie on , stated that ho wltl
his car was taken on at Chieo , Sarpy
county , and that he had a common coal oil

forward brakeman both testified that they

that were frightened. The forward brakeman -
man stated that ho called Randall's attentloi
to the tact of the danger of Tire from the Ian

men appear to have seen the boy who was in

NKIIUASKA CITV. Neb. , July 18. | Spccla
to the BKE.J Some time during last Feb
ruary there arrived In town a number of
emigrants direct fiom the "Faderland. "
Among theai was an Intelligent and brlcht
yount ; German girl about twenty years of
age , who seemed rather out of place among
the common lot of cmmlgrants. To the few
acqi'alntanceshc ' made she claimed that she
waa married to an ollicer In King William's
army , but still used her maiden name
Gretclien Von Monhattsc. She was well
supplied , seemingly , with money ; but through
a number of successive misfortunes she
found herself shortly without funds or
friends and was comuellcd to seek refuge In
the homo for the irlundle.s of Lincoln ,
where she gave birth to a boy.
As soon as she was able tn
travel she returned to this city , and the
child \ as adopted by Mr. Woolsoyof ( ireggs-
port. In a tew days the child sickened and
diet ) , and was taueu to Hamburg , la. , for In
terment. And now comes the romance of
the story. The young girl again returned to
Lincoln , but before leaving the cltv. in one
of her dospondentimoods contided'her story
to a lady , from whom the account comes.
The old , sad story of love and folly on one
side and the devil on tno other. Her father ,
the claims , Is a wealthy government otllclal
la Germany , and of a niphly respectable
family. She met and loved a dashing ollicer
of the army and fall a victim to folly. Her
parents s ut her from home and her lover
cent her to this country to hide her shame ,
promising to follow and make her his wife.
She has boon waiting for him for six months ,
but lu rain. She Is still waiting , foolishly
trusting , his excuse being that he cannot get
ttJO necessary permit to leave tlio country.

nothing beyond the rescinding ol the action
taken by the clubs that met at Lcavcnworth
some time ago , and the Increasing of um

pated that a conll.ct over the recent action at
Leavenworth would occur , but an amicable
settlement was tinally arranged and the of-
licers remain the same as originally chosen ,
The eighth club question was discussed at

Wichita was present , a telegram was sent
the diioctors ol the club asking them to have
some one at the meeting to-morinw. It Is
considered a settled fact that if Wichita tails
to come in , Omaha and Lincoln
will both withdraw and enter
tin ? Northwestern league , as the managuis of
these duns claim to ho able to do In a week
it they so desite. If this occurs the results

the B. &M. storehouse located In the center
ot the yards and near the freight depot was
in tlamos. The building was of frame , dry
as powder , and In live minutes was a mass
ot ilames that spread to the wing of the
building whore the oil was stored. When
this took tire there was no hope for the store
house and attention was given to surround
ing bulldlilgs and lumber. The tire depart
ment found it almost Impossible to got water
and ono ot the steamers was called Into use
befoiuiidecunt .showing was made In lighting
the damns. In tliltty minutes the entire
building was gone , but owing to their being
no wind and the department's work with the
water the flames were then easily brought
under contiol. The building was very heav
ily .stocked with supplies ot all kinds , and
the Io < s is variously estimated at Irom 550,000
to ST.000. It is Impossible to-night to leatn
the amount ot iiihuianco , but It is thought
it will cover the loss , uiid it lias probably
been plncud by the eastern management and
not locally in this city. No certain cause Is
assigned tor the ( ne , bill it is the current
opinion that it was incendiary , growing out
ot the recent switchmen' ! , strike at this place.
