CunTts , Nob. , May 23. [ Special Telegram
to THE BEB. ] Ono of the most atrocious
crimes In the annals of humanity was perpe
trated about 8 o'clock yesterday morning
on the farm of n man named Greenwood ,
about fifteen miles from Curtis , in the ad
joining county of Lincoln. The victim was
Mrs. Annlo Bryant , Greenwood's ' seventeen
year old daughter.
While employed in a restaurant hero the
girl met a young man named Lorn Bryant ,
with whom she kept company until about
three months ago , when it was discovered
that she was In a delicate condition , She
then disclosed the fact to her parents.
Her fath or was very angry
nnd said ho would disown
her. Both the girl nnd her
family wcro highly esteemed , and popular
feeling ran very strong against Bryant * *
This , in connection with the fact that the
matter was brought before the
grand Jury , induced him to marry the girl.
Ho soon abandoned her , however , nnd refused -
. < , fused to contribute to her support. Hearing
5 that an Indictment was about to bo brought
against him , Bryant left and has not been
heard of since.
The condition of the girl was such that she
was unable to work and was compelled to
sock shelter at her homo In Lincoln county.
Her father nt first refused to lot her coino
back but finally yielded to the intercessions
of her mother. Ho brooded a good deal over
the disgrace to his name which Annlo had
brought upon the family and frequently ex
hibited symptoms of insanity which grew
more marked as the time for her confine

sake , take Annie's baby and take care of it ,
for Greenwood has shot her. Don't- como
near the house for ho threatens to shoot the
first person who comes there. "
Annie had glvgn birth to the child n few
minutes before her father came nnd ho drew
his revolver and phot and killed her.

WAIIOO , Nob. , May 23. [ Special to TUB
Bun. ] For the past eight days the distric
court has been in session with Judge Marshal
vn the bench , and in that tlrno four cases
out of 150 have bee disposed of. At this rate
Baundors county will never have her district
I'ourt docket cleared. The cases disposed o :
have been of more than usual Interest ant
Importance. The case of Jefferson ngalnsi
C. M , Pickett , in which n verdict for * 1,000
was rendered in favor of the plaintiff , was
for false imprisonment. Mr. Jefferson hai !
the misfortune to look lilio BOIIIO one else
who had been guilty of disposing of mort
gaged property and was arrested and im ,
prisoned by Plekett , who at that time was
not an officer , and when ho was released
leased 1m brought. his nctioi
for damages witli the above result ,
The case of Sornborgcr ngalnst Snnford has
been of deep Interest. Some years ago
Bornborger , who was then a son-in-law to
Sanford , was loaning money for the latter ,
uiul the old gentleman came west and found
us ho thought , that his son-in-law was no
using the money for the purpose for which it
was entrusted to him , and secured from
somebody a chattel mortgage on nearly all
his possessions , including a largo and valua
ble law library , for about f'J.OOO. Two years
ngoSanford sought to foreclose the mortgage
ami took possession of thu library , and Sorn-
berger rcplovied , setting up that the mort
gage was obtained under threats of prosecu
tion for embezzlement , which constituted
duress , and was therefore void. The Jury in
the case rendered a verdict to-day giving the
possession of the library to Sornborger , and
Holding that the mortgage was void , Thu
case of the State against W. S. Wilson for
bhooting with intent to kill Gary at Ashland
last February is now occupying the attention
of the court and jury.

Little Chief. Red Cloud is the grand mogul.
The sentiment expressed BO far is against
surrendering the land and a general < libii | > -
probation of the manner of remuneration to

eral opinion of u number of gquuw wen who
wo imcivstod'.in inducing the ludiaus not to
surrender the land is that it will bo almost
impossible to get the requisite number of In
dians to sign. There are n largo number of
squnw men who own largo herds of stock ,
and they are allowed to range their cattle
and horses nt will on the reservation. They
are doing their utmost to induce the Indians
not to give up the land.

WILIIEII , Neb. , May 22. [ Special to THE
BEE. ] One of the boldest attempts at rob
bery that has occurred at this place for
years came to light this morning , when it
was discovered that during the night "mom-
hers of the light-footed gang" had ransacked
the cntlro court House during the
night. But , as fortune favored Wllber's clt-
zcns , the thieves obtained nothing whatever
in any of the various rooms that they had
gone through of any value.
In the sheriff's oQIco whcro the safe was
blown open $10 was obtained , while in the
treasurer's oQlcc , whcro nt least $300 had
been stored away In the large vaults , the
thieves had evidently become disgusted be
fore they attempted to open the Iron doors.
In the county clerk's and Judge's office noth
ing was done but disturbingsomopapers that
were of little value.
As yet no clue 1ms been obtained as to the
perpetrators , and if wo call judge from indi

and decided to grant licenses. The remon
strators appealed to the district court and
the cases will probably bo heard there this
week. In thoiriremoustranco ngalnst the ap
plication of Mary Simonidcs they took the
ground that a license could not be legally
granted tp any woman , citing section 1 of the
Slocumb law in support of their position ,
which says that the applicant must bo a mar

seemed to think that the word man as used
in the section was meant to include women as

WASHINGTON , D. C. , May 23. J
Chairman Mills said this afternoon that if
next Monday was not given up to measures
for the District of Columbia in the house
work on the tariff bill would bo resumed. It
will come up on Tuesday anyway. Ho says
the first important movement will be to se
cure night sessions , with u view to complet
ing the proposed amendments within three
or four weeks , so as to get the measure out
of the way in the house , by the 15th or
20th of Juno at the farthest. Ho expects the
republicans to protest ngalnst this , but ho
has a majority with him nnd will undoubtedly
secure night sessions.
HErunucANs AT WOKIC ON A TAiiirr nii.t , .
A republican member 8f the committee on
ways and means told mo to-night that the
question of free sugar and the attitude of
Judge ICclley on the subject had brought
them to a standstill In their efforts to com
pile a bill to bo offered as a substitute to the
ono pending consideration. Judge Kcllcy is
unalterably opposed to free sugar or to re
ducing the duty on sugar to any extent. The
republicans have the greatest respect for the
judge , but this ono of his colleagues antici
pated that there would bo free sugar or some
thing to that effect In the republican
bill. When I asked him what
ho thought would bo the form
of the bill which the republicans
will offer as n substitute for the Mills bill ,
and when it would bo completed , ho said : "I
think wo will take the duty from alcohol to
bo used In the arts , making a reduction in the
Income of $0,000.000 a year. Wo will put all
grades of sugar on the frco list , excepting
probably ono or two of the highest grades , on
which wo will retain n sufficient duty to pay
n bounty of 2 cents n pound on that product
In the United States. Our sugar product
amounts to about $0,000,000 , and wo pay
about $5,600,000 a year sugar Imports. This
will make a reduction on sugar of $ , " 0,000,000.
Wo will accept practically what the demo
crats propose in regard to internal rev'
enucs , removing all the duties on to
bacco excepting In the form of cigars and
cigarettes , and also abolishing the license of
tobacco and liquor dealers , making a reduc
tion on the Internal revenue of $21,500,000.
In all this is n reduction of 580,000,000 in
round figures. This is the essence of the
skeleton of the bill wo now have under dis
cussion and which wo are turning over at
our nightly conferences. "
"There were a iot of propositions on the
sugar question , " continued the member ,
"but those which were most seriously con
sidered outside of the ones I have indicated
made all sugar below 13 Dutch standard duty
free , and retained the duty on the grades
above 13 Dutcii standard. That was rejected
because it proposed to retain the duties upon
all sugar which could come upon the table.
Another proposition was to retain Just
enough duties ou sugar to maintain
the refineries. Still another proposition was
made to meet the argument of the democrats
to the effect that if wo make sugar free Cuba
and other sugar producing countries will
levy an export tax equal to our present duty ,
which would thus make our sugars as high
as at present and turn all of the duties wo
now receive to the foreign sugar producing
countries. It was suggested that wo could
prevent this by the insertion of a prohibitory
or retaliatory clause , but this was rejected.
I do not expect to see the bill completed
under n week or ten days before the final
vote is taken on the Mills bill. This will
give us advantage of the Knowledge wo will
gain in the debate under the flvc-mlnuto rule.
The substitute bill wo will present will meet
the approval , I think , of the entire repbulican
side of the house. "
' CONDITION 01' CHOI'S IN IOWA.
The bulletin on the condition of crops
issued to-day from the department of agri
culture has ,110 reports from Nebraska ,
although nearly every ono of the southern
states is represented. The following from
the report relates to the condition of grow
ing wheat in Iowa : "Winter wheat has
barely held its own since April 1. It has
suffered quite generally , and in some sections
quite bad by dry weather. "
The following is in respect to the changes
in the area of crops in Iowa : "There is a
general and marked falling off in the acreage
of spring wheat as compared with last year.
This is attributable to fear of chinch bugs
and low prices. Barley is the same , though
perhaps it lias not suffered BO extensively.
The fields heretofore going to , and now left
by , wheat nnd barley , will bo planted
to oats and corn , oats probably taking the
greater share , hence a mnrucd increase in the
areas of these crops. Frofni'tho natural
drift of farming in this state , there should
bo a decided increase in tljo areas of meadow
land and pasture ; but , instead , they huvo
Uarely held their own. This is owing not
only to the poor germination of seed the
past year , uut to the fact that many fields
already in sod wcro turned lust fall nnd this
spring fields that had been yielding unsatis
factory returns the past two years.
In Dakota it is stated that farmers are
seeling with all the force possible. The
spring was so backward that worlc was de
layed about ten days , and p.irt of the lain ]
plowed for wheat will bo used for oats , bar
ley nnd corn. Wheat and a portion of the
oat crop Is already In. Frostoecurrednearly
every night during April , which also re
tarded work , and the wind has been go higl :
for the past fifteen days that Reeding ami
dragging have been almost impossible. The
lucrcasn in the area of wheat over last year
in Dakota is slight.

The report was adopted.
The report of the committee on resolutions
was presented nnd adopted as follows :
The democracy of the state of Illinois , In
convention assembled , earnestly endorse the
administration and acts of President Cleve
land. They dccui him to have proved him
self by his wlso and conservative course , and
by his faithful and cQlcicnt discharge of his
tfllcial duties , worthy of the confidence of all
oho people and entitled to the loyal support
hf that political party whoso illustrious leader
ao is. Public good demands his rcnomtnatlon
nnd re-election to the chief magistracy of the
oatlon. We admire his candor and applaud
his courage in voicing in his recent message
to congress upon the present tariff , the dem
ocratic doctrine that the constitutional tax
power of the government is exhausted when
the government has , by means of it , exacted
from the people a sufficient amount of rev
enue to meet the necessary expense of gov
ernment , economically administered.
In tbo raising of such rovcnuo they insist
that the government lay its taxes in such
manner as to make , as far as practicable ,
luxuries rather than the iccessarics of llfo
bear.tbp burden of governmental expense ,
and thtftthoy bo not , levied in such manner
as to create class diBtinctlon and promote
business favoritism and breed trusts-rind'
Not less urgent they bellovo is the demand
for reform in state taxation than in the na
tion , and they call the serious attention of
the voters of Illinois to the enormous In
crease in the expenditure of public money by
the present republican administration for
the support of the state government , in itr
self a cause of the utmost concern to tax
payers. So alarmingly have these expendi
tures increased that the people wcro taxed
to raise the sum or ? 22,80S,000 for the year
1887 , a sum almost f 1,500,000 in excess of the
former year. A sum HO largo dcniohstrates
that the longer the republican party rcmrins
in power in the' state the more corrupt nnd
extravagant it grows and Justifies the de
mand of the people for a coanco , not only to
tlio end that such extravagance shull cease ,
but that proper investigation may bo had
to ascertain If the money has been honestly
The democratic party favor full govern
mental inquiry into the causes of the present
disturbed condition of the industrial world
and demand such legislation , state and
national , as will remove unjust burdens from
these who .abor , and they also favor laws to
encourage and provide arbitration in dis
putes that affect public welfare.
The peojilo of Illinois call upon congress to
make provision for the construction of a
great national waterway between the great
lakes and the Mississippi river sufficient for
tlio largest inland commerce nud for naval
defense , as proposed by the
waterway convention held in Pcorla.
October , 1887 , aud endorsed nnd
approved by the patlonal waterways
convention held in Memphis , October , 1S67 ,
nnd by the national farmers' congress held
in Chicago , November , 1887 , and the democ
racy of Illinois requests the national conven
tion to make this question part of its declara
tion and platform ,
They cordially commend the energetic
action and liberal course of administration
of Grover Cleveland In administering all
pension laws for the benefit of union sol
diers and their families by which their claims
have been rapidly adjusted and comfort and
happiness brought to the homes of thousands
who. by inefficiency nnd neglect in the former
administration of pension laws , have been
wronged and neglected.
Resolved , That the democratic party is op
posed to non-resident foreign holders of lands
In the United States. The democratic party
favors no legislation restricting the emigra
tion and naturalization of honest men who
come desiring to assume and to discharge the
duties of proper citizenship.
A resolution was also adopted thanking
President Cleveland for appointing Hon. M.
W. Fuller chief Justice of the United States
A. J , Bell of Peoria , John M. Talmer of

nounced Seller and Bell were withdrawn.
The roll call went on and when the last
county had been reached it was apparent

CHICAGO'S JURY FIXERS. -
A Commotion Caused By nn An
nouncement in Court
CHICAGO , May 23. [ Special Telegram to
THE BEB. ] Another sensational climax was
reached to-day in the trial of Sumner O.
Welch , the employe of the South Sidb ' cabo )
railway , who is on trial for 1'JUry ' * fixing. "
The testimony already developed indicates
that an attorney and agent of the Chicago
City railway company have been engaged
persistently and shamelessly in the business
of bribing Jurors hearing cases wherein this
corporation has been made defendant , "in
the practice of this crime the culpable ueorits
of the corporation have been well supplied
with money. Specific vouchers "havo riot
been given for expenditures , and the respon
sible officers of the company have not cared
to put on record on explanation of the dis
bursements thus freely made. Yesterdjay
the grand jury indicted William Starkoy , an
attorney of the company , for jury bribing.
Sturkoy came here from New York in 187d.
By occupation Starkcy was n stenographer ,
and a good one. Ho had influential friends ,
and when Luther Laflin Mills bceamo state's
attorney , a position was made for him on tnat
official's ' staff. Starkoy was efficient and ca
pable , and soon became popular with the at
torneys nnd politicians who crowded the crim
inal courts in these days.
While in the state's attornc5f's ofllcc ho took
up the study of law , and nt the expiration of
the customary two years was admitted to the
bar. When his term in the state's attorney' *
oflico hud expired by reason of a change in
the administration. Bill secured desk room
with A. S. Tmdo. Ho moved down stnlra
ono flight when ho left nnd had desk room
with Charley Hardy , who is council for the
South Division railway company and V/clch'H
lawyer In the contempt proceedings now
pending against him. Starkoy disappeared
when the Welch case began , and is supposed
to bo In Canada.
During the trial this afternoon came the
crowning sensation of this extraordinary In
vestigation. "I will at this point , " said Mr.
Pope , "renew my motion of yesterday re
quiring Mr. Welch to glvo bonds for his ap
pearance In couit from day to day durlnu
this Investigation , " Before Judge llawca
had time to make any reply to either of these
requests , Attorney John Lyle King , also for
the prosecution , arose , nnd glancing over
toward the counsel for the defense , ex
claimed : "I think it is only fair , your honor ,
to also give notice to those gentlemen who
are hero on behalf of the company , and of
tlio defendant , that I will at the proper tuna
make a motion to this court that O. B. Holmes ,
William Sturkoy , and Sunnier C. Welch beheld
held on ball to the criminal court on
a charge of conspiracy to do
acts injurious to the administration
of public justice , and I shall glvo my reasons
at the proper time , for making such u mo
tion. " Mr , King sat down amid the deep
hllenco that had fallen upon the whispering ,
noildlng audience. Nothing further was Mini
by Mr. King upon the biibjcct , but ho had
bald enough to crcato an impression upon
everyone in tlio court , from the Judge to the
nudleiico. This , of course , was duo to the
fact that the foremost man mentioned in Mr.
King's charge has been one of high standing
in the community , both socially and publicly.
Mr. Holmes is president of thu company.
The court ordered that Welch should clvq
bail , nnd the investigation was adjourned till
