A Warning Note.
LINCOLN , Neb. , July 19. I Special to the
UKK.I Governor Thayer , after duo and cnro-
ful consideration of the plea made for the
commutation of the sentence ot Hoffman , the
Nebraska City train wrecker , who Is under
sentence to hang on Friday of this week , the
22dof July , to Imprisonment for life , ren
dered a decision to-day which Is published In
full belosv. The decision embodies the gov
ernor's Instructions to Sheriff McCallum to
enforce the sentence of the law. The letter
to the sheriff of Otoe county tells the tale :
D. W. McCallum , Esq. , Sheriff of Otoo
County , Nebraska City , Neb. Dear Sir :
Having carefullv considered the reasons pre
sented In favor of a commutation ot the sen
tence of death to IniDrlsonment for life In the
case of David W. Hoffman , 1 nin constrained
to Inform you that 1 find no sufficient reason
for Interfering with the execution of the
sentence imposed upon him by the court.
The deliberate wrecking of a train and the
destruction of human life Is a crime so
wanton and atrocious , so cruel In the plan
ping and Its results , that , in my Judgment ,
the severest penalty inflicted by the law Is
none too severe lor all who are concerned In
I have been reminded that the accomplice
of Hoffman In the perpetration of this fiend
ish deed , has escaped with a comparatively
light sentence. I have nothing to do with
that. Hut the fact furnishes no Justification
for my relieving Hoffman of the fate that
awaits him. An example must be mado. with
the hope that It may deter others from the
commission ot such deeds , and thus secure
safety to the travelling public against the
perpetatlon ot such crimes. You will at
once communicate my decision to the con
demned man. You now have your duty to
perform In this ense ns thu Inw directs.
Very respectfully > ours ,
JOHN M. THAYKB.

Telegram to the HKI : . ] Hoffman has at last
reall/ed the hopelessness of his case and Is
anxiously seeking tor spiritual consultation.
Ho was baptised In the Methodist Episcopal
church and since has devoted nls time to
reading the bible and praying. To-day ho
sent out the following letter addressed as a
special to all papers :
A warning to all young men : 1 write
these few lines hoping tlmt some young man
whom I have played with may read them
and a warning take from me and never tip
the poison of the bowl to his lips. Oh I
young men , when yon take the first
glass , set It down and think , oh think ,
deep down In your hearts , how
many graves It has idled ; oh I how many
children's fathers It has torn from them , and
how many poor wives luft alone In sorrow
andgiieffor the loss of their dear beloved
husbands ; how many poor mother's hearts It
has broken. Oh , young men , turn from that

one who was free and hnppy , whoso henrt Is
overflowing with sorrow nnd grief , almost

bureau , who was four times promoted , as ho
says , "without nsu of Influence or pressure
from any quaiter , " nnd who was dismissed
by the secretary at the request of the com
missioner of pensions , who admitted that
there were no charges agnlnst him , the
Washington correspondent of the Tribune

respecting the methods of General Hlnck ,

the pension bureau. Ho charges Hint no
single republican has been appointed In the
pension bureau since March 4,18S."i , nnd tlmt
the civil service commission Is so constituted
nt present that It can grind out democrats
for that otllco every time. In June , IhbO ,
fourteen men were examined for three vacan
cies nmong the principal examiners. Nine
passed. Of these Thomas F. Dennis nnd
John C. B.assldy stood hrst nnd second.
They and several others were doing
duty ns principal examiners at the time , but
Black declared "Not a nmn lu this office gets
ono of these places. They go to the good
democrats from the outside. Black wanted
the entire eligible list to select nom , but
Commissioner Trenholtn refused the request.
When Trenholm was inndu comptroller of
the commission , Oberly promptly furnished
thn list as requested , nnd In May n violent
southern sympathi/ln * democrat , S. M.
Longbhnw , of Alabama , was nppolnted. Ho
failed to got the required grade In the civil
service examination ns grnded by the regular
examiners , and appealed to the civil service
commission , who raided his grade In one
bianoh enough to bring his geuernl nveingo
up to the minimum. Dennis nnd Bassidy
were both given to understnnd thnt it tlwy
would mnko no noise they could go to the
held as special examiners and bo retained in

the UEE.J The selection ot a Jury to try
the boodle case Is drawing to a close , not
from any apparent desire on the part of the
defendants to hurry It up so much as from
their Inability to prolong It much longer.
They are fast drawing to the end of their
peremptory challenges and once they are
exhausted It will not take long to find four
men who , In the eye ot the law , are compe
tent to try the defendants.
There wore no sensational features about
the examination of talesman to-day , but the
exciting Incident of the dny occurred Just
after the Jurors hnd been taken from the
court room. Miss Kato Kcano , the
female lawyer , one of the counsel for the
condemned anarchists , rushed Inside the

approaching George Hell , the Tribune re
porter , exclaimed : "You had better bo care
ful before you write any more about me. Von
are nothing but a dirty , miserable whelp , and
If you ever svrlto another word about mo I
will mark your face for you. "
Then Miss Kane squared off as If she
meant to eat up Mr. Uell then and theio. Mr.
Bell , w ho Is six foot two sat there , reading a
paper and did not venture to lookup. Miss
Kane was not done , however. She hissed
out a few moro cutting phrases and every
body looked to see If the unfortunate re
porter's hair was standing on end. It wasn't

"I won't bo scandalised and held up to
contempt by you" Miss Knno hnd got this
far , when Judge Jamieson put one hand on
the desk in front of him and said :
"This discussion must end , Miss Knno ; wo
can't have It here. "
' 1 thought court was adjourned , your
honor , " exclaimed the lady , "but I don't
propose to be ridiculed and scandalized by
such a low , contemptible thing ns that , " nud
she pointed to the rupjrtoilnt six-footer.
"Stop It right there , " yelled Judge Jamie-
Miss Kane weighs a peed deal , however ,
and It was a matter of speculation how it
would have ended If the lady had let out her
right or used her parasol vlgoiously. The
newspaper man was the first to leave , hnw-

Western LCUKUO Games.
KANSAS CITY , Mo. , July 19. ( Special
Telegram to the HKI : . ] Thu meeting of the
Western league to-daj which adjourned at
midnight was productive of some rnther
stnrtllng results in the matter of officers , nn
entire clmngo being made , President Throw
resigning nnd ilr. E. E. Mengas , of Knnsns
City , tnklug his place. Secretary Murpliy
was unanli.iously bounced and H. E. Me-
Kelvy , of Omaha , chosen his successor. This
notion Is the result ot the decided nntlpathy
ex-President Threw possessed og.ainst Mur
phy on ncconnt of the Len\enworth meeting ,
coupled with thu hitter's refusal to remit n
line of &J5 imposed on Dave llowo
some time since for ouestloulng the
decision of ox-Umpire Hunt on strikes.
The change was not accomplished
without somethings of a struggle
nnd cnused n long and nnlmnted discussion.
At last It wns evident tlmt if President
Tlirew did not resign a split would occur on
the seciotnryshlp question , so ho tendered his
resignation and It was promptly accepted.
After the election of Menges , the considera
tion ot Murphy was resumed. The question
wns put to n vote nnd ho was removed ,
Omaha , Lincoln. St. Joe , Hastings and Den
ver voting for his removal. McKelvy was
then unanimously chosen. Murphv wnu not
niesent. It is practically settled that
Wichita will comu into the league , as the
club has offered to pay $100 to visiting clubs
nnd accept n ST ( > Kimrnntce. Robert Mc-
Cllntock. of Denver , was appointed n com
mittee by the leniiio to visit Wichita nnd
close tlio contract , nnd ho lett
tor there to-night. 'Iho hist
league tame vvljl probably be
played In Wichita the first of next weok. All
danger of either Omaha or Lincoln with
drawing fiom the league is now ended.
George Kny snld to-night tlmt there was no
danger of Omaha's withdrawal from the
league now nud he wns glnd ot It. The
eighth club problem being settled the lenguo
was now In excellent condition , nnd ho
thought n new state of affairs would bo In-
nuurnted. Mr. Tlirew , of Lincoln , said tlmt
now Murphy wns out ho had no fault to find.
Lincoln would stny In the lunnuo nnd piny
the best ball It know now. At the conclusion
of the meeting the ulub represontntlves In
dulged In n mild champnlgne supper In honor
of th sntlsfactory results achieved.

of the Washington Park club , UcDarlnc him
from nil tracks controlled by the American
turf congress , has called forth a great deal
of comment to-day. Secretary Bruster claims
tlmt there was no animosity against Corrlgan ,
but on the other hnnd It is nsserted tlmt Corrigan -
rigan and one of the judiccs , L. P. Tarlton ,
of Kansas City , are not on speaking terms.
The Inference is tlmt Coiiignu , seeintf his
horse being nddresscd by Tnrllon , was not
open to severe criticism for buisting out with
nn order to liny no attention to the judge's
remarks. The refusil of the mnnageis of the
club to net In the llngiant cnso in which
Hankln's horse Jacobin , wna pulled , un
doubtedly , It Is sold , for gambling puiposes ,
Is being strongly contrasted with tlio mens-
nies taken ngainst Corrlgnn , whoso honesty
has not at nil been In question.

asked what had become of the man , Letgetfi
said they had a row and the man loft. It wna
thought at ttio tluio that something waa
wrong , but nothing was done until a short

found his dog playing with an object ono
