The Plnttsinoiith Sensation.
1'LATTSMoUTii , Neb. , May 17. [ Special
Telegram to tlio Bnn. ] Lost night's shoot
ing scrape is the absorbing topic at present.
At least a dozen witnesses testify that the
shooting was unjustifiable , as the wounded
mail hud done nothing which would warrant
such an attack. The fooling of the com
muulty is strong against the Plnkerton men ,
Who nave been making themselves as offon-
slyo ns possible since they have been in the
The Plnkerton who did the shooting has
not been found. There are several theories
as to his whereabouts but It is rather certain
that ho escaped from the hotel nnd left the
City during the nicht. The Pinkertons re-
Tuso'to say anything in defense of their com
rade except that ho was knocked down be
fore bo commenced shooting. Their story is
contradicted by reliable witnesses. Captain
Politico brought about twenty Pinkerton
npcolals into the city early this morning but
at prcscnt-tlicy huvo nut been sworn in.

road , Conductor Maxwell , Engineer Plow
man , was coming north at the crossing near
Blue Springs and having the right of way , it
was nearly run into by a Burlington passen
ger train going west. The Union Pacific en
gineer stopped nnd observed all signals while
the Burlington "scab" not stoppingatjall ran
bver thu crossing ahead of the Union Pacific
at the rate of about twenty miles an hour.
Had it not been for the prompt action of ttio
Union Pacific engineer in reversing his en
gine and getting out of the way a serious col
lision would have occurred. The Union Pa
cific , boys feel that it was an unwarranted
piece of carelessness and propose to look up
the mutter further.

LONDON , Mny 17. [ Now York Hornld
Cnblo Special to Tun BEK. | The Peruvian
Landholders' association , or which Sir Henry
W. Tyler In chairman , nro nt length Iti good
spirits over the finality of the arrangement
recently made by which they nro to get sorao
payment. For details I was referred by seine
of them to Mr. W. W. Grace , who is a brother
of Messrs. William H. and Michael P. Graco.
On seeing him at his residence In Holnrul
park ho referred mo to an eminent solicitor ,
Mr. Gerald Augustus Ollanl , legal advisor to
the bondholders. I found Mr. Ollard in his
olUco in that Nassau street or sort of legal
region of London known as Bedford Kow ,
Holborn. Ho very freely said : "Tho Peruvian
bondholders represented by the committee in
London liiwo claims against the Chilian gov-
cruicnt in respect to certain properties con-
talncd in deposits of nitrate , which wcro conceded -
ceded by Peru to Chill in the treaty of peace
ut the tcrmliiatlou of the leccnt war.
These claims hnvo been taken up and sup
ported by the English government , and Mr.
W. U. Gruco was very anxious while on a re
cent visit hero to see the whole matter set
tled. In regard to Peru and Chill , however ,
ho had now made proposals , the nature of
which Is not yet fully known | to the English
government. The purport of these propo
sals is expected to bo known in London about
the end of this month ; this Is where the mis
taken idea originates that the thing 'hangs
flro. ' I may toll you that the settlement
will take the form of payment in Chilian
"Is there any- contract yet drawn up
between the cominittoo of bondholders and
the Peruvian govcrnmcntl"
"Oh yes , last year a contract was en
tered into between the committee and
the Peruvian government for the set
tlement of the Peruvian liability as to
the external debt. That contract was called
the Grace contracton account of the part ho
took in bringing it about. You see by a
copy of the contract I now hand you that it
provides for working a number of railways
and for opening Peru generally.
That contract , however , was not submitted
to the last Peruvian congress , owing to cer
tain objections made by the Chilian govern
ment. Fortunately for all concerned these
objections Imvo now been overcome through
the exertions of thoj iglish government ; so
that the contract isj expected to bo brought
before the Pcruviancongrcss , in its existing
form , when it meets in July next. "
"But you will waut a lot of money to carry
this out ) " ,
"Very likely , but I . , bollovo the necessary
financial arrangements ore substantially
completed In London.1 A syndicate of com
mercial gentlemen , composed of bankers and
merchants , ore reqijy to back us with any
amount , and so the lilTalr Is on the high road
to success. Yes , it iii Ml but settled. Wo
have now only to 'got the sanction of the
Peruvian congress. , Qur committee of bond
holders consists of Sif. Henry Tyler , George
H. Hopkinson , bankers , Frederick Santleg
Hammaclr , formerljj Chilian consul , Colonel
Sir Alfred Kirby , Colonel J. T. North ,
Mr. John Proctor , and Earl Donoughmoro.
The Peruvian debt , you must know , amounts
to about 55,000,000. The railways arc ex
pected to yield from JESO.OOO to 85,000 n year.
The customs duties yield 120,000. The
guano yields from 100,000 to 150,000. At
the completion of the settlement the bond
holders will receive from Kto 1 percent. "
He exhibited a copy of the contract , which
lias been modified sincoit was first prepared
and executed on May 10 , 18b7. It seems that
Peru assigns to the Grace syndicate its rights
to work its silver , coal , cinnabar and other
mineral mines ana guano , with participation
in the profits , such working to continue for a
long scries of years. The syndicate is author
ized to construct quays or wharves , and is to
have free use of existing quays of the rail
ways. which arc ten in number. It also
authorizes the construction of high roads in
all departments in the Peruvian republic.

ment give the commltteo 1,800,000 hectares of
laud for colonization purposes uncl in
various departments the right to export
guano discovered or to bo discovered.
The bondholders Imvo the right to crcato
mortgages on all concessions not to cxceod
0,000,000 ; the right to relieve a percentage
on all custom house dues and the right to
establish a bank at Lima on the part of the
bondholders. Tbey agree to provide free
passes on all railways for Peruvian officials ,
soldiers to bo transported at half rate , and to
glvo the government free telegraph and mnl [
services. Whatever the ooilimlttco may im
port shall bo free and the syndicate is ab
solved from all taxes. The contract occu
pies 100 pages of legal manuscript.
I was subsequently referred to Mr.
Joseph Nelson us knowing much more
about this syndicate. I found him nt
the National Liberal club. Ho deserves -
serves his reputation. Ho has probably
forgotten more about guano than most
men will ever know. "Yes , " ho said , "I can
toll you nil about this Gruco syndicate , I
ought to bo posted on the subject
after nil the attention I have given
to it during the last twenty years.
Within a few days an agreement lias been
concluded and signed in Chili between the
Chilian govern tncr.t und Mr. H. Frazer , British -
ish minister to Chlfi. ' Tlio Peruvian bond
holders were represented by Michael P.
Grace , brother of vo.fc-Ma.vor William H.
Grace , and by Gerald * A. Ollard , while the
Peruvian minister of. finance looked after the
Interests of his counlr It is Impossible to
know the prcciso tcsnv until tlio arrival of
the mails , about tub Stth of this month ,
However , I have iustdti information on the
subject and am abloWj ! assure you that the
terms of the contract arc substantially as
follows : First , thowuonay now tied up In
the Dank of England1 , about 500,000 , will bo
divided among the P ruvlan bondholders ;
second , these bondhfjljiprs will bo given en
tire control of the guu'no beds , they paying
therefor to the Chilldn government n royalty
of twenty shillings ( ovWy about ? 5) ) per ton ;
third , the Chilian government consents to
the proposed Grace contract with Peru
on condition that she bo required to us-
sumo no part of Peru's indebtedness.
Now as to the several clauses of this agree
ment , the 100,000 referred to comes from the
proceeds of guuno sales made by Chili smco
the conclusion of peace with Peru. In the
treaty made oftin1 the war in 1879 Chill
agreed , lu view of the fact that she had taken
from Peru all her guano lands , to pay to the
Peruvian bondholders 50 per cent of the
amounts received for the guuno discovered
up to that timo. The money Jias- remained
tied up on account of conllicttng claims , among
the bondholders. It IB piobnble that the
Dreyfus claim will be sot aside as to the soe-
oud clauso. Chili may well concede the guano
beds under suc.l : conditions. She has mndo
enough out ofPeru already. Tlio fiip. ; > ly
of guano is becoming exhausted , ana it has
always been nn annoyance to her. The con
quered prbvincc of Tnrapaca , whcro the
guano HM , brings Chill a greater rovcnuo
from lit wealth of nitrates , on which she has
only to collect an export duty , than from all
Its guano. You mint rise very curly
to get the best of n Chilian.
The Genoese have n worhl-wldo reputation
for being close-fisted , but I will back a
Chilian against one of them. Then In regard
to the clauso. You remember that when the
Grace contract wns proposed last year , Chili
refused her consent , partly because , she
says , that in making such an agreement
Peru was practically renouncing her au
tonomy ns n nation , nhd principally because
she ( Chili ) was required to assume one-half
of Peru's Indebtedness. Now that the con
tract has been modified so ns not to Inter
fere with Chill's purao strings , wo see how
.much slid really cared about the
nutonomr of her sister nation.
So wo may consider the matter as settled.
In n few days the association of bondholders
will have ceased to exist. They will ex
change tholr bonds for shares In this now
company , \vhlch will borrow capital to
develop the mines , lands and railways of
Peru ns wcll'as the guano In Chili. It is n
collossal enterprise and a great , deal of
inonov will undoubtedly bo made out of It.
Peru has the richest silver mines in the
world and in general underground resources.
In her past oho has been much more dinned
ngalnst-thnn sinning , and when n bankrupt
falls into .tho hands of usurers ho must
expect to bo plundered. It is the same
way with nntlons. In the discovery
of gunno Peru thought she saw a way out of
her difficulties. First she sold the right of
exploration to Anthony Qibbs , who made an
immense fortune out of it. Others , seeing
the possibilities of this now industry , began
scheming to got the control away from
Gibbs. Wholesale bribery among the Peru
vian ofllclals was the consequence. Thomas
Bernard & Co. took Glbbs' place. Then
Drcifus , who had been keeping u common
store In Lima , by similar methods superceded -
ceded Bernard & Co. In Ins turn ho had to.
give way to the Poruvlan-Guano company.
Each change of contract increased the de
moralization among Peruvians until in the
end gualio , instead of being a blessing , has
proved a curse to the country. "

ho enjoyed the wheeling , sometimes stood
and returning to the tent took short turns
about. Ho ate a hearty dinner and had a

awokorefreshed. The fresh air and oxcrciso
has had such an excellent effect on his health

SOUTH OMAHA NEWS.
Ono of the drawbacks to South Omaha is
the darkness of its streets at night , and both
the old and new council have struggled to
overcome the difficulty. Various gas com
panies made various propositions , but as a
general thing they wanted all kinds of privi
leges for a poor kind of gas. Con
sequently they got nothing , and now
the council is discussing the advisability
of buymp an electric lightplnnt of their own.
This would enable them to have the streets
lighted for nothing , mid nt the same time
would bring in a revenue to the city from
the lights furnished merchants and others ,
who uro now clamoring for them. In all
probability the city willno asked to vote on
the issuing of $5,000 or $0,000 worth of bonds
for the purpose , and in all probability they
will vote "yes. "

called themcetlng'toordernndatter the read
ing of prayers reviewed briefly the work of ,
their church in the homo missionary field.
Ho stated that the Episcopal church
of this diocese had 77,000 square
miles of territory to cover , or as large
a territory as eleven dioceses in the cast'aro
expected to cover. Ho said that there are
ever ono hundred towns in the stata without
religious privileges , yet for tlio want of men
nnd money they cannot bo reached. Ho
asked for more liberal contributions for the ,
work during the coming year. Hon John M ,
Woolworth and C. S. Montgomery both de
livered very able and interesting addresses
on the different phases of the missionary
work. Dean Gardner also mudo n few remarks -
marks on the subject. Before the meeting
was closed a largo number of pledges wcro
made for the benefit of the missionary work.
There was a very generous attendance of the
members of the ecclesiastical body present'
at the church yesterday morning when the
meeting was called to order by the bishop.
After short devotional exercises ho delivered
nu address to the members of the diocese in
which he reviewed at length the great worlc
of the Clarkson memorial hospital for chil
dren that is located hero. Ho explained the
grand work that Is being done nt this insti
tution for the invalid children of the church ,
and urged upon the clergy present the in- I
stitutlon's need of belter support from the |
churches throughout tlio state. Ho asked <
