Two Brother * Killed at a Picnic.
KXIITEU , Neb. , August 22. [ Special Tele-
tram to the JiKi : . ] Now.s was brought early
this morning of a terrible shooting affair nt a
Bohemian picnic and dance on the banks of
Turkey creek last night. Nothing definite
ould bo learned beyond the fact that John
Newer , an Inlluontlat citizen of Friend , and
bis brother Prank had been murdered by a
: rowd of railroaders , part of the construction
tanic of the Kansas City & Omaha railroad.
1'ho coroner and sheriff were summoned , and
I posse In search ot the murderer brought
In six of the railroaders. A jury was Im
panelled and during the Investigation ono
f the men , Thomas Rook , confessed to the
ihootlng , but entered a plea ot Eclf-defense.
As near as can be ascertained tbe Bohemians
were holding ono of their picnics on the farm
of George Newer , nine miles southeast
at here , One of the railroaders
Diesent tried to entice a young
Ctrl away from the dance into the woods and
the girl told Mrs. John Newer , who In turn
Informed her husband , lie and his brothers ,
Frank and George , Interviewed the man.
Words followcdand Frank promptly knocked
ono of them down , only to fall himself with
& bullet In the back of his head. John start
ed for the shootlst , who turned and ran , but
after going some twenty feet the fellow
turned and shot John Newer through the
head , putting another bullet tluough his
heart before ho fell. Both men were killed
Instantly. Hook Is an ex-cowboy and an utrly
customer , as his victims boar silent testi
mony. Ho was taken to Geneva this evening
by Sherllf Carson to await the action of the
grand jury ,
FIIIBNU , Neb. , August 22. ( Special Telo-
iram to the BEE. ] At n Bohemian picnic
Sunday night , held about ten miles south
west ot here , In Flllmoro county , John and
Frank Newer were shot and Instantly killed
by It Is supposed a railroad man. Beer was
the exciting cause. Six railroaders tried to
steal some of their beverage , which was on a
wagon In kegs , when the proprietor , John
Newer , Interfered with the remark that ho
was "On to their racket , " and slapped one In
the face. At the same tune John's brother
Frank came up and was Immediately shot
down , the ball striking him in tlio back of
the head. John , Newer , seeing his brother
lying dead at his feet , Jumped towards his
murderer with the remark , "The s of a fa-
has shot my brother , " when on the
Instant two moro shots were heard and ho
fell dead , ono ball striking him In the chest
and the other In the nose , ranging upwards
and lodging In the brain. News come * to
night that the murderer has been captured.
His name is Thomas Hook , living near Ex
eter. The coroner's jury has adjourned *
until to-morrow. Great excitement prevails
and lynching will not bo considered an un
natural outcome of the double tragedy. A
later report says they have taken the alleged
murderer to Geneva for safe kceplntr. A re
port which just came In says a mob of ex
cited men have left Friend for Exeter.
ProgreBB of the Klchardson Trial.
liour CITY , Neb. , August 23. [ Special
Telegram to the BEK. ] The Klchardson
trial opened at 9 a. m. The state began by
examining Coroner Kcttoll , who testified
concerning the wounds aud the latallty of
them. Thu state then followed by Introduc
ing three witness' who saw from the opposite
Bide of the street the latter part of the affray.
Then followed the barber , A.M. Bennett ,
who has up to this tlmo kept the piece of
metal that was thrown across the shop at the
tlmo of the killing. Bennett stated that
whorl Willard entered the shop ho expected
there would bo trouble and wiped
his razor to lay aside. Ho saw
Willard advance and noticed that
Ulchardson backed away a step or two , showIng -
Ing signs of fear or dread. The two men
then commenced a discussion. Ho ( Ben
nett ) then thought that matters were going
to be settled without much trouble anil re
sumed his work , when the metal passed his
chair , struck the back door and rebounded ,
striking the chair. Ho looked , and as he
looked the two snots were tired In rapid suc
cession. Benuett says that Willard had hold
of Richardson and had his head drawn down
BO that tbe top ot the head rested against
Wlllard's collar , or the upper part of his
chest , when the shots were fired. The de
fense take a great deal of courage
from Bennett's statements. The state
introduced several witnesses who evidently
harbor a stronr hatred for the prisoner , bul
the force of their testimony Is Invariably
broken by the scathing cross-examination ol
Senator Paul. Many fanners and stranger :
In town are surprised when they sco tin
state has so far tailed to uiako a plain un
nuostlonablo case , as they expected It would
from the rumors tirst set afloat. Just before
the close of to-day's session the state ex
pressed a desire to rest , and thu defense filed
a motion that the court require the state tc
produce their witnesses , three of whom arc
oye-wltucsses. _

benelitted by bis trip. When asked about the
Pacific railroad Investigation and rumors of
his indictment , ho smiled , and then , with a
graver look as ho shook his head , ho added :
" 1 have seen some accounts of the Investiga
tions from tlmo to tlmo-but I have not kept
up fully with It , and papers have not been
sent with details. I thought the appoint
ment ot the Pacific railroad commission was
a good measure when It was made , and I
don't know of anything to cause mo to
change my opinion. Wo have nothing
to conceal that relates to the business of
the Central Pacific with the government. Of
course , there are many business details ot no
Interest to anybody but the railroad company ,
and we do not care to gratify the curiosity of
prying Individuals In regard to Interests
which do not concern them and are of no
public Importance , but whlcn they wish to
extract through the commission , 1 aui quite
sure that the members of the commission are
Intelligent enough to perceive such influence
enco and to discriminate when an effort is
made to force them on the public. Wnjhavo
never used money to brlbo ofllclals and there
Is no evidence nor any circumstance that can
fasten such a Htlgma on us. What Stan

thing to do under the circumstances. "

"Uavo yon made any further arrangements
for luivinz steamers built In England for the

by the president ot the Champion Machine
company , Amos Whltloy , of Springfield , to
his brother , William Wliltley , who trans
ferred It to the First National Bank of Bos
ton. The Fidelity bank failure In Cincinnati
is the cause of the trouble , Mr. Amos Whitley -
ley being security for a largo amount ot Fi

Is the largest machine house In the city. Mr.
J. U. Qulgley , agent for the Champion
house , says the attachment will amount to
little and not at all effect the business of the
concern. It Is a question as to whether the
Champion company Is liable for tbe personal
debts of ono of the company. Mr. Amos
Whitley's endorsement was to save his
brother , William Wliltley in the eastern
states and was 'given in his personal ca
pacity. _

They Arc Pound In the Democratic Plat
form Adopted at Boanoke ,
An Able Addrcaa to Electors T\j the
Ilcimhllcnn State Committee of
Virginia Hollow Promises
Democratic Duplicity.
1'ETEiisuuna , Va. , August 82. The Vir
ginia republican state comuilttco has Issued
an address to republican elector : ) , the first
part of which Is an answer to the address re
cently put forth by the democratic managers.
After referring to the Indorsement of Presi
dent Cleveland and that his administration
will receive the cordial support of the demo
cratic party In Virginia , the address says :
"The democrats are Inconsistent and Insin
cere as they demand the repeal of the in
ternal revenue system and the passage of
the Olalr bill , when It Is known that Presi
dent Cleveland is opposed to the one and
withheld his Indorsement from the other.
Ills formal and expressed approval of Sec
retary Manning's views and rec-
mmendatlons upon the subject of tax-
lion and revenue are conclusive. Secretary
ilannlnic deprecates that there Is no
ongor auy duty or tax imposed upon tea and
olfee and while urging the reduction of
duties upon such articles of Import as are
produced In our own country , squarely op
poses any reduction of taxes Imposed upon
obacco , fruit distillation and whisky. Presi
dent Cleveland approves these views and
ecommondatlons of Secretary Manning.
That Cleveland's administration Is a bitter
disappointment to the managers of the dom-
icratlcparty of Virginia Is attested by loud
and deep complaints. It may * bo
hat the democratic managers sincerely
'lsh the repeal of the Internal roveuuo
ystein , from motives of self-preservation ,
but when they declare for the repeal of a sys
em , as part of the democratic faith , they arc
guilty of cltorts to deceive the voters of the
ommonwealth. That system Is hold by tuo
demociatlc party as a hostage to compel the
overthrow of the republican policy of protec-
lon to American labor bud Industries.
The national democratic platform upon
which Cleveland was elected promised to re
peal the Internal revenue system , but pledged
"ho party to the continuance ! of Internal
ovenuo taxes and their application
o the payment of pensions. Kvery message
of President Cleveland has Ignored any sug
gestion of a repeal of the internal revenue
system. Thu democratic majority of the
Forty-ninth congress , speaking in accord
ance with the views of President Cleveland ,
has given unmistakable respouses on behalf
ot the democratic party. "
Tuo address refers to an adverse report
, iion ) the bill to reduce the Internal rovuuue
taxes , submitted by Mr. Moirison ,
chairman of the committee on ways
and moans , July 10 , IteC , and to
an adverse report upon a rtisolution "repeal-
Ing taxes upon tobacco" submitted on the
same date by W. 0. Breckenridne , of
Kentucky , another leading representative of
the democratic majority. This Is the later
record of the national democracy now In
power , upon the repeal of the Internal revenue -
nuo system and the democratic party which
for ten years , excepting the Forty-seventh
congress , controlled the house of representa
tives and failed to act upon the subject.
"It was by the Forty-seventh congress ,
which was republican , " says the address ,
"that the taxes wereieduced fully S50,0uo,000 ,
the reduction on tobacco being from
10 to 18 cents. Yet othe leaders of the
democratic party In Virginia are trying to
delude the people into the belief that the re
peal of that system may now bo accomplished
hv the democratic party. The promise of
this repeal was made In 18S4 by siiveral dem
ocratic candidates to congress but the people
could not bo deceived. It remains now to bo
tested whether the same hollow pretext can
bo used In 1887 by the democracy with anv
more success than attended them In IbbO ,
Wo declare that at the moment
the republican party lost control
of the Government it was prepared
to act upon this subject , that President
Arthur had urged the lepeal of the tobacco
tax and a democratic house with a republi
can senate ready and anxious to rcduco taxes
declined to proceed. That the
party is now so practically united in favor of
the repeal of the tax on tobaeco and fruit
distillation , and If restored to power will re *
move the burden which those domestic pro
ducts liavo so long endured. Wn assert that
the democratic party in congress Is opposed
to the appeal of the Internal revenue system
as shown by the declaration or its
loaders from President Cleveland down.
Wo appeal to you to support the republican
candidates for the legislature and not waste
your votes on candidates whose iuctior )
favoring the repeal of theao taxes Is in a
hopeless minority In its own natural piftty.
The platform of the Hosnoke convention re
specting the tariff is at valrinco with the
record of the democratic party. It declares
In favor of a revenue derived from a tariff
op imports and In favor of the repeal ot the
Internal revenue system which the record ot
the party unanimously shows that the re
verse Is the democratic doctrine and we
arraign the platform as misleading and seek
ing to deceive the people upon a question
vital to their Interests and to the progress
and power of the strike. The Washington
Post and the Now York World , two of the
most Inlluentlal democratic journals in this
country , have declared openly that the rev
enue and tarltl planks of the Hoanoke plat
form are diametrically opposed to democratic
principles , and all over the cast , north and
west the orthodox organs of the democracy
have united in denouncing this platform and
Its frame. "
The address arraigns the democracy for the
Incompetoncy and unlriilttuliiefis which
cause the failure ot the act of the new re
publican legislature for the equitable icad-
justinent of the state debt.
"As to federal aid on the debt , " says thn
address , "tho question , If It Is ever given ef
fect , will bo through the liberal construction
contended for by the republican party.
"Tho republican party will cheerfully unite
In every effort to aid disabled soldiers ttnd
widows , "
The address denies that the democratic
party founded or are responsible for the
the efficient management of the tree school
It says : "The republican party has always
been faithful to the agricultural Interests of
the state , and wo remind the people that Secretary -
rotary Manning recommended the repeal of
the tarltl on wheat , corn and other tarm
products , and that tea and cotleo should be
taxed as luxuries. As Mr. Cleveland endorsed
this and the democratic party endorsed
Cleveland , we ask the farmers to consider
what this declaration of trlondshlp Is worth.
Wo feel that our party , whose proudest motto
Is , 'The Dignity of American Labor and the
Protection of American Industries , ' needs
no rapid asseveration of friendship for the
laboring man. "
The address arraigns Governor Lee
for his many shortcomings , and then
touches upon the finances by asking whai
becainu of thn 51,600,712 which was in the
treasury In IbSi. whou the democrats reentered -
tored the capital , and what lias been done
with the taxes since collected , amounting tc
over S 10.000,000 , and why there I ;
now so little money In the treasury ,
with yet an accumulation ot over
due and unpaid Interest In th <
same period , Increasing thostato debt 84,500-
000. The people have a right to know whj
thuanmnl costs of administering the govern
nicut have Increased from SbO1'000 to eve ;

How Cleveland Kocfm Ills I'romlscH.
WASHINGTON , August H [ Special Tele
gram to the BEK.-Chttlw ] McComber Is
lie was not a statesman1 , neither was ho a
jurist of profound ability but ho
w s n whole-souled good fellow who has
done a great deal for the democratic party In
his day. Twenty years ago no democratic
meetlnifln Erie county or western New York
was complete without the presence of
McComber. tie was one of the best 1m-
prompte speakers In the western end of the
state and ho was always called upon for a
speech whenever the regular speaker ot the
evening found himself In atlght hole through
the questions of the opposition. Ho was a
lawyer by profession but has had several
political positions of trust In Buffalo and
served as post wardun In' ' Now York for
Foveral years and no man did
moro to secure the election of
Orovcr Cleveland to the shrievalty
of Erie county than Charley McComber.
our or live years ago ho came to Washlug-
on , and during the time that ho has been
here he has been engaged In the business ot
lalm attorney. But ho has been 111 a great
leal and aged dulled his eloquence and af-
'ectcd his memory. When Cleveland was
lectedto the presidency "Mac" applied tor a
iilnor position , lie asked that no be ap
ointed to a place where he could support his
wife and child in moderatecomtort , and stig-
: estcd that a place then filled by thn ex-post-
uastor of Buffalo , Schemerhorn , be given to
ilui. This place was a special agency In the
ustoins service , and McComber could have
illcd It with credit lie was endorsed by
he solid democracy of Erie county.
There IH every reason to believe
"liiit he has an absolute promise
ram the president that ho should
tiave the position or one that was equally
; ood. But he did not get It or any other
osition at the hands of the president He
was taken with a stroke of apoplexy on Sat
urday and to-dav ho died. Last week the
president heard of McCombor's destitution
and sent him 50 and a quantity of provis
ions. It is reported to-night that the presi
dent has notified the widow that ho will take
: are ot the funeral and that all expenses
ivlll bo paid by him. The treatment of Mc-
Jomber by the president Is not an isolated
: aso. Every Bulfaloian or almost every ono
ivho has appealed to him for an office soon
if tor the election hasbcen treated In the same
tiny. Soon alter the election ot lbS4 , an
elector on the democratic ticket called on
Governor Cleveland and congratulated him
on the successful outcome ot the election.
Cleveland thanked him and asked It he could
do anything for him. The minister said ho
wanted nothing for himself but that ho had
n old nncln In BulTaio whom he wou'd ' like
o see settled in a comfortable berth. The
uncles name was Henry Zlolglo. Cleveland
new him well and ho would bo willing and
{ lad to appoint him to any place which ho
might desire in the consular son Ice. Xleglo
hearing of this wrote that he would vciy much
like to iroas consul toStutgart. The piusldcnt
answered in his own handwriting that as
as soon after his Inauguration as president
us ho possibly could , ho would appoint Mr.
Zicglo to the place. Within two moutlls
after the inauguration ho appointed , not
Xleglo , but a Mr. Klmball. of Chicago. Of
course there was a row. 'The president said
that it was all a mlstaka and that ho was
very sorry. Mr. Bayard had made out the
papers and he .had signed them without re
membering that ho had promised this another
place to his Buffalo friend. Was there not
iilace which Xleglo would like ? Xlegle said that
he only other position for which ho would
: are a straw was the consulship at
Mannhlom. Mr. Cleveland did not
"Ike to remove tho. Incumbent
Kudolph Wollfshon , also a resident of Buf-
: ale , who had only occupied the place for
about a year but If there was a change Xlcgol
should bo icmombercd. Ho hud to bo con-
' .ented with this. A few weeks after Wollf-
ihoii resigned.Zelirel thought surely ho would
; et the place now but ho did not. Before it
tad been vacant two weeks James C. Mon-
qscan , of Uliode Island , bad been selected to
'ill the vacancy.
It Is bad enough to have an ollice
which has been promised to ono Dutch
man given to another Dutchman" said Xei-
cel. "When it is given to an Irishman It is a
Uiousandtimes worse , lam disgusted and
; uad. "

LONDON , August 3X ( Now York Herald's
Special Cablegram to the BKE. | 1'ho Fur-
ness line steamer , York City , which brought
the City of Montreal's burnt-out passengers
and crow to Queenstowti arrived elf Gravo-
satul this morning. It was Imuindtatoly
boarded by tlireo American ladles , Mrs.
Falrbank , of Ohio , and two friends who wore
curious to Know how the Montreal living
freight had been accommodated aboard the
YorK City. After Captain Bonn had ex
plained everything to them , the vessel pro
ceeded for the Victoria dock and drew last
to her wharf at 1 p. in. where the crowd had
assembled to see the much talked of rescuer.
1 wont aboard at once to got an Interview
with Captain Benn whom 1 found to bo a
bluff , hearty Yorkshlreman speaking -
with broad Yorkshire accent. He said :
on the llth I sighted what appeared to bo a
vessel on lire , bearing twelve or fifteen miles
away. 1 Immediately furled all sails and
111 ado towards her , thlnklug and hoping I
might be of some service , At80p. : : ! m. with
a strong wind , and I think a small rain , Igot
close alongside and made her out au Inman
Hue steamer , all ablaze fore and aft. Iwent
close alonsulo to windward , when 1 found
all her boats gone and tackles hanging over
her sides. I presumed all hands had either
been taken otf by some other vessel or wore
still adtlft on the water. In the meantime
I made every preparation for picking up
the crew. The passengers had stationed some
hands aloft to look out while others stood
ready with life buoys , ropes , ladders , etc. I
cruised around unsuccessfully until 9:30 : p.
in. , when my look-out man sighted a brldgo
light to the northeast , distant about live
miles. 1 at once made for It , and they must
have seen my vessel , for thu next moment
they burned torches which kept waving to
and fro. The light proved to belong to a
small bark laden with petroleum , sailing un
der an easy canvas. 1 wont close under her
stern and hailed her :
"Have of the burnt '
you any tidings ship's
crow'i1" I asked.
Ho replied :
"Yes , I have them aboard , " and
asked me to lay to by hi pi until daylight ,
which 1 did.
"At 5:30 : a.m. on the 7th , " continued Cap
tain Benn , " 1 again wont close to the barque
and learned ho had 140 passengers ana the
crew of the City of Montreal. Tlioy asked mo
would 1 take them aboard which 1 readily
agreed to do. 1 at once ordered my boats
out and commenced to transfer them to my
vessel , with the assistance of ono small boat
belonging to the City of Montreal. The
weather being line and having great assist
ance from the Montreal's ofllcors everything
was accomplished safely and comfortably.
At S u.m. all wera aboard. My crow In the
meantime had unbent all our sailstook , off
the tarpaulin awnings , and maila tents
for them on the deck. I also
used up my spare timber in matting several
bunks under the forecastle head. 1 loained
they had been very much cramped on board
the barque as only six or seven could go below -
low at the same time and owing to the nature
of her cargo they could not smoke , so I at
once gave everyone free access to my cabins ,
berths , etc. i distributed ton pounds ot to
bacco and some pipes among the men and
thn women 1 put into the wheel house where
I sent my stewardess to brighten them with
her colfeo anc brand , etc. They were all In
fairly good spirits but sopping wet
through , and all expressed them
selves delighted at our coming to take them
elf the baro.uo which they heartily cheered as
wo parted company. My head steward
boon prepared a feast and all ate heartily as
If they were hungry. They continually
talked about their marvelous escape , but
fairly well cnioyod themselves. Ono pisson
ger who had losi everything except tils Unto
played every evening while others danced ,
sang and gave recitations. To whllo
away the time 1 gave them all
the books cards and draft boards
1 hail , for which they wrero
very much pleased. The Montreal's captain
and olUcars shared everything I had In my
quarters. Luckily iny cargo con
sisted of n quantity of edibles
So , to help my own ship's provisions
last out I broached rny cargo to the extent of
twenty sacKs of Hour and ten cans of corn
beef. Everything else I had plenty of. In
fact the steward has just told mo ho has over
ton pounds of tea still on hand. We were ,
when wo loft the barque , 155 miles
from Queenstown and did It in seven days.
in my own mind I feel certain the
Iho was not an accident but the work
of some malicious person or persons ,
because the tire broke out fore and all
at the same time , and the two bull heads
were untouched between.
1 was very much pleased with thei
address of thanks presented to mo and
from the number of letters I received
this morning from friends congratu
lating me and asking lor a copy. I shall
have to get It lithographed for distribution. "
Part of the above Interview took place
while wo were riding to tlm agent's olllco tu
report , after which the captain lott to join
his wife and children at his home in Whitby ,
famous for its jot ornaments and ti3h.
