"For assault ! "

"After I went to America ho may hai

Lord Lonsdalo "Tho husband. "
Cross examined by Mr. Lewis : "Thod

adultery with Mrs. Do Bcnsaud on July
last year. The case was ready to como (
for hearing and on that date dcfcndni
agreed to accept 750 in discharge of li
wife's adultery. The money was paid to d

also subsequently paid 850 ns costs. I hi
previously paid defendant 125 for postpo

Mr. Lewis Having paid T50for bis wife
adultery , and having told him his wife hi

Lord Lonsdale "Yes , that was so. "
Kc-oxamlncd : "Havo you not sworn th
you had not committed adultery since tl

Lord Lonsdnlo "No. "
It now being evident that Lord Lonsdn
had been called simply for annoyance , ov <
at the risk of degrading the half-era/

Trovclyuu to a skunk , a cuttlofli

T nameless crimes. * '

Balfour said ho would refer to United Ii
land to prove his statements , but in reply
'cries of "Quote 1 Quote t" said ho wet
"novur think of sullying his lips by repoatl
auch language u had been used. Ho dcnl
in tote the allegations that Karl Caniarv
favored a Dublin parliament and had open
negotiations with Parnell with the knowlcd
of Saulsbury ,
Proceeding to compare the crimes act
f 1883 and 1SS7 Balfour maintained that t

.The government's action. Balfour declared ,
nul been modified by neither.
Balfour , referring to the 'imprisonment o :
members of the house , twitted Trovclvat
with making n weak remark to the effect thai
t was a sickening thing for tnem
bcrs of parliament to bo I in
prisoned. ItMIS n akkcnlng thing that thej
thould deserve It , said Balfour , nnd It woule
M ) much worse It the government had Rivet
the leading violators of the law n spccln
lirlvllegn to defy itwith impunity. A child
sli fuss had been made over their prisoi
clothes. Complaint had been made of n lettci
which ho wrote during O'Brien's Imprison
mcnt. All It Vtatcd , ho said , was tha' '
O'Brien wu $ suffering from weak lungs am
an excitable disposition.
Hcgardlng the alleged tortures In tin

make special Inquiry , with n resultant rcporl
showing It to bo utterly untrue. As a matte :

O'Brien That is inaccurate ; I was fir *

Turning to .tho operation' otituo crimes act
Hulfour contended that the condition of Ire
land-was Immensely Improved compared wit !
the period of the Gladstone government
What n spectacle did tbo liberals now pro
sc'iitl Who , a short time ago , would hav
supposed a single man on tho'opposltioi
bench would advocate forcible- resistance t
the police ! Ho was pained at the progres
of the degradation of ' the libern
party , members of which now rose t
the height of Indignation only when dcnoiinc
Ing Judges , magistrates nnd the police , who
under great difficulties , stood between sociot ;
in Ireland and utter ruin , fearlessly oxc
cutcd their duties nnd had their reward litho
the respect and admiration of every tru
friend of liberty nnd order. [ Prolongc *
cheering ] ,
Mr. Gladstone followed Balfour. II
found little In tbo chief secretary's speoc !
that tended to assist them in getting at th
truth of the question before the house
There was n question whether the conserve
live lenders had communicated with I'arncl
on the subject of homo rule. The denial
made by Balfour did not get rid of the Irisl
member's assertions. Parnell had statei
that ho had found himself in entire agree
mcnt with Lord Carnarvon on the homo rul
question. That had not boon don led.
Balfour , Interposing , said the letter frou
Carnarvon clearly Implied that ho did not c >
press an opinion upon homo rule to Pnrnell
Gladstone replied .that Carnarvon hai
never explicitly denied Parncll's statchicnt
Continuing ho said the liberals were callci
separatists because they wished to give el
feet to the national aspiration of Ireland
while having supreme regard for the unity o
the empire. Some remarks of Balfour , Glad
stone said , were npparcntlv levelled at him
self. His ( Gladstone's ) Nottingham speecl
had been absolutely misrepresented as to hi
statement regarding tbo Irish executive'
practice of obtaining information b ;
permitting tbo police . to concoc
crimes. Ho protested than , ns now , ngalns
tbo practice ns dangerous to society an <
idious in Itself. Ho had never uttered word
over which ho felt moro rejoiced than hi
words about Mltchellstown. Ho used thcr
for the sake of preventing enormous mis
chief nnd suffering , probably bloodshed. I
was the ngonts of law that wore the breaker
of law at Mttchelistown. It was cruel , wan
ton , disgraceful bloodshed almost withou
example. Balfour had become , by implies
tion , a breaker of law'for he gave the nc
Ills authoritative approval as if it were to b
the model rule for the conduct of the police
Gladstone declined to accept , as authentic
the government statistics of crime under th
coercion act until the cases cited were thoi
oughly Investigated. The only cases given i
detail had mot with a point blank contradic
tion. Supposing tbo government bad
momentary appearance of success from th
operations of the coercion net , were the ,
going to foi over legislate ou the same , line
Ho hild never heard the ministers cxpres
confidence in their ability to .make pernmncn
resistance to the policy of homo rule. Ho di <
not disguise the strength of the comblnatio
against homo rulo. But the Irish uatln
and n growing English popular feeling wa
on Its side. If resistance to the natlonn
voice of Ireland was pushed too far , thos
who now guided the mind of that natio
nngbt lese their power ana bo displaced b
ruder and more dangerous spirits. Let th
government bethink themselves and cot
sent to legislate for Ireland as the
did for England and Scotland , i
accordance with the constitutionally ej
pressed wishes and permanent convictions c
the people and thus , at last , present to th
world the blessed spectacle of a truly , an
not nominally , united empire. [ Lou

Beatrice Municipal Matters.
BEATUicn , Nob. , Feb. 17. [ Special to tl

several Important measures. Some time nj
the council granted a right of way totl
Itock Island railroad company through Thu
street with the expectation that' the compar
would use the franchise before now. As tl
matter now stands , property-ownors on thi
street , not knowing what tbo company wl
do , cannot sell their property or. oven rent
to advantage. A proposition to vote bom
for paving soon to como up nnd the cil
wants to know what is to bo done wlth'.tl
street in view of these facts. The city atto
ney was instructed to prepare an ordimini
repealing the former ordinance , granting tl
right of way through the street. This wl
settle the matter nnd cause the company i
either use the street or give it up.
There being complaint of the consumers <
the gas of the Beatrice Gas company , tl
committee- the council on gas was ii
structed to investigate the gas meters and r
port if any overcharge was being made.
In accordance with a resolution' the atto

ducing the mayor's salary from $500 to $3 <
and the couucilmen from $100 'to ' $50 <
annum. This will not affect tlio 'prescj
officers but takes effect May 1. Onb rcaso
for doing this is that the board of publ

How a Road-Agent Agreed Not tc
Molest a Stage Company.
Pierre , Dak. , special : The slngulni
freedom enjoyed by the Northwestern
Stupe & Transportation company frotr
rend n pen Is during the curly days of iU
existence , when the trail led from Bia-
inurck to Dotulwood , will n welcome fuel
which ninny n wdnry traveler in sciircli
of the land of promlso can cheerfully
testify to , but nevertheless it wtis ti
source ol much speculation us to how the
immunity granted the line was to bo no-
counted for. The Slddy stnjjo was held
up on nearly every trip , messengers
killed , nnd passengers robbed.
In 1877 the line commenced operation *
between Bismarck und the Black Hills ,
doing n pabRonger tralllc nnd albo haul
ing the gold bricks of the Homcstakc
mine , often amounting to $200,000. there
by promising n rich harvest for the
festive road-agent who at that time in
fested the country through which the
trail ran. Mountains and gulches lined
each bike of the improvised road , unin
habited , save the Indian , nllording u
magniliccnt retreat for the robbers , whc
could "hold up" a coach and escape
with their booty into the hills , where il
was simply impossible to find them ,
much less recover tlio property.
Hank Wall was at the head of n gang
of freebooters who made their homo in
the hills , nnd who were n terror to trnv-
olors who might from necessity be com
pelled to pass through the country ,
During the lirst week that the North
wester u rnn from Bismarck Wall nnt ]
his "held " throe coaches
men up" , one
being the treasury coach containing
Homchtako bullion. After the first trij
however , Mr. C. W. Richardson , now ol
Pierre , was agent at Bismarck , nnd he
requested nil passengers going througl
to deposit their money with him , ho in
return issuing Deadwood drafts. Extni
precautions wore also taken in the waj
of guarding each coach , four outriders ,
armed with repenting rifles und selected
with reference to tlipir markinanshir
and nerve riding before nnd behind the
coach on each trip , about 10Q yards dis
tant , thus providing against surprises
and incidentally protecting the passen
gers. These arrangements soon ren
dered the road-agent's occupation not
only unprofitable but attended by an el
ement of danger which he did not rel
ish. Tlio passengers carried nothing of
value nnd the treasure coaches wore bo
well guarded that "Hank's" raids began
to net him loss than would u raid on an
ordinary contribution box.
One day W. J. Gidloy , who had
charge of the drivers , was inspecting
the lino. The conch which ho was on
was approached by n horseman , who
proved to bo the redoubtable 'Hank"
himself. Gidley knew him , nnd , after
passing salutations , he inquired of Wall
what hq had been doing. "Hank" re
plied that he had been holding up these
d d northwestern couches till ho had
gone broke at it. Ho then mentioned
the object of his visit. "It's this way ,
Gid , I've got a nephew in Deadwood
who is anxious to get to his homo in
in Port Wayne , Ind. , where his mother
is very ill. Now. if you will promise to
bring the kid through on your next
trip and buy him n ticket from Bis
marck to Fort Wnyno , I'll agree never
to hold up another of your Coaches or
cause you any further trouble. Is it n
Gidloy thought the scheme n good ono ,
and ns ho know Wall to be a , man who
respected his word , whatever his othoi
shortcomings might be , tlio agreement
made , and on the next trip through tc
Bismarck tlio young man was a passen
ger. The ticket was purchased to Fort
Wall was as good ns his word , nnd
from thnt day to this not another pas
senger was molested. Wall immedi
ately turned his attention to the Sidney
line , nnd the papers of that toivn came
out with columns of abuse aimed at the
Northwestern companycliarging it with
being in league with the road agents ,

Cnituno , Feb. 17. [ Speclal Telegram to
the HUB. ] The wheat market was licklnc
in interest arid there nppcnrcd to belie tow
thing about It , certainly nothing which" could
in any way effect prices. There wat'notrio
good buying early for outside account , whloli
.nimlo the market strong early , but resulted
only in n slight advance. After that trndo ,
Brow small und was conllned largely to local
traders , such fluctuations as occurred being
caused by the immediate necessities of
scalpers and not by any news received. Tlio
oporatlons'of the heavier traders were oh , too
small a scale to bo noticeable or to Influence
prices. Light receipts nt primary markets
and especially here , where cuts In freight
and storage were expected to bring increased
receipts , were talked about ns a strengthening -
ing feature , ns were also liberal jiblpmcnU of
flour from Baltimore , but it appeared
that these things were only talked about nnd
not acted upon. Some bullish news comes
from the winter wheat belt concerning stocks
nnd the condition of the crops , n gentleman
connected with the Eastern Illinois road sola
that the lost three weeks had wrought dam
age to winter wheat In eastern Illinois and
western Indiana. May whcatoponcU at 805 0
and after selling nt WlifgbOVo advanced to
SO' c , then fell to 80 } o and hung ; between
that price and S0 < c for some time , then ad
vanced to 80 > c aijaln nnd closed nt 1 o'clock
atSO c , which was the starting point , Juno
wheat opened nnd closed at 80 0 nnd during
tbo session ranged between SOJ/Q OK and
Corn was strong and higher nnd closed at
almost the best price of the session. The
bull argument is that the receipts do not in
crease , ns was expected , in view of cheaper
freights and storage. One rather weak spoti
in the session seemed to bo caused by the re
port that n contract had been mndo by the
Hock Island road to deliver 1,000 cars of corn
from Nebraska at the seaboard at a lower
rate than any heretofore made. It would
seem that relieving this market of that
amount of corn would help prices hero , but
the view taken was that It would weaken the
eastern market nnd reflect , that weakness
hero. May corn opened nt fioko aud soon ad
vanced to 51c , and fell back later to COKe
nnd again advanced to DOJjfc , closing at that
price nt I o'clock. June corn opened atSOj c ,
sold at 5QdSQfa } and nt GOJ c aud closed at
C0 ° fc nt 1 o'clock.
Oats hold very steady throughout the ses
sion and advanced u little in price. There
was some relief from the pressure of short
sellers nnd good demand. May oats opened
nt 31c nnd never fell below that price. The
highest point was Sl c , and the 1 o'clock
close was 3U/31 ; ' < fc. For Juno oats 31 0
Wai bid at the opening nnd that delivery sold
un to and closed nt , nti n.
In provisions the movement was again
Irregular. Trading opened with the bear
element In n mood to continue their hammer
ing operations , and in the course of a short
time pork suffered a break from the highest
point touched of Me , and lard and short ribs
of 7Kc. This depression , however , was
quickly followed by n sharp reaction , and
before 1 o'clock ttio decline nil uiouud was
inactically recovered. In the day's market
lard was relatively stronger than either short
ribs or poik , and closed ut nn actual advance
