linn.J Last night Mr. Tumor , who lived
five miles northwest of Corthuid , committed
BUlcldo by hanging. His wlfo went to the
barn and found him hanging by the neck ,
Btlll struggling. She immediately cut the
rope and ran for help to n near neighbor's ,
but when they returned ho was dead. It Is
reported that when she cut him down she
forgot to remove the rope from his neck before
tl ; fore starting for help , which might have
Jio eavod his life. The coroner wns summoned
o K nnd wns on the ground early this morning.
u From what can bo gathered at tills time , it
1 seems the act was occasioned by family
1L' trouble , as It is reiwrtcd that ho and his wife
did not live In harmony. At this writing the
I coroner has not returned his verdict.

gram to Tnu Hin.l : Eberhnrd Thurbor , a
farmer living near Princeton , this county ,
; * committed suicide last night by hanging him-
eclf with a calf rope in the woodshed of his
dwelling. Two weeks ago n babe was born
In the family , which , with the father , mother
nnd a four-year-old child , constituted the
family. At the supper table last night some
, hot words occureil between Thurber and his
wife , in which she upbraided him for neg
lect of the child and causing her trouble.
Ho left the house In n rage , nnd shortly after
I' the wife found him breathing his last. The
' shock so overpowered her that it ren.ulro-1 all
I'I the vlgllcnco of the neighbors through the
night to keep her from destroying herself ,
I and to-day she Is n raving maniac , und was
brought to this city to-night to bo examined

priation Hill They Scalp
Mjr. Sparks.
An Adverse ! Opinion Fltail.
G13 FouiiTRCNTii STUKF.T , >
Tlio tutor-stale commcrco commission 1ms
lied nn opinion prepared by Chairman
Jooley , which ilnds that the complaint of the
Omaha freight bureau against various rail
road companies Is not sustained. The facts
are found established ns alleged bub It Is not
seen how they establish nn Illegal preference
against the city of Omalm. The complaint
s that through rates are made from Chicago
cage to Interior points In Nebraska which are
ess than the rates to Omaha plus the rates
; o these towns. The through Yates nro given
to all such points , and to require thorn to bo
raised to n sum which would equal the
Duiuha rate added to the locals from Omaha
iicyond , would Impose burdens upon the In
Lcrtor places , which the law docs not cntltlo
complainants to do. The commission hi
reaching its decision makes the observation ,
among many others of similar character :
"This case cannot bo regarded ns one In
which Omaha and Chicago nro the business
points exclusively Interested. This case Is
very different from what It would bo If that
wcro the fact. The nature of the complaint Is
such that the sixty-ono Interior Nebraska
towns named In it are the real parties re
spondent In Interest , while Chicago , tliouyh
Its interest may bo large , is Interested only
incidentally , and because the rates made
from Chicago and Omaha respectively to
such interior towns enable the Intter to ob
tain their goods from Chicago direct cheaper
than they can obtain them from Chicago in
directly , through the jobbing houses of
Omaha. The prnycr of the petition can only
bo granted by increasing the rates from Chicago
cage to such Interior Nebraska towns with
out increasing these to Omaha , or In some
other way making a relative difference In
rates ngainst sucli towns which does not now
exist. The parties who would directly or
immediately suffer in consequence
would , therefore , bo the towns whoso
rates would bo thus relatively increased.
Ttic justification which Is advanced for this
relative difference in rates is that Omaha is
as great a distributing point as Chicago and
entitled to such special rates. It had special
rates in the form of rebates before the passage -
ago of the act to regulate commerce , and
prospered upon them , but with the prohibi
tion of rebates and the giving to the interior
towns as favorable rates as Omaha now ob
tains the field of Its operations is nar
rowed and its business suffers , while Chicago
reap.s the benefit of its losses. Omaha , it is
alleged , is thus robbed of the advantages re
sulting from natural .location and the enter
prise of its citizens in building it up. An
obvious embarrassment in attempting to
provide and protect the claim made on be-
hnlf of trade centers-is that it is impossible
that there should bo any general agreement
as to the towns which can bo regarded us
such trade centers. . Jndced , in the nature of
things , it is quite out of the power of any
one to point out any. test by which wo may
classify those which are and distinguish
them from those which are not. The classi
fication can not bo by size merely ,
for all trade centers arc at some
period small , and If the class- !
liuation is hy , the amount of
business it will sometimes be found
that a small' center is , in some
articles if not in al ) , doing a much larger
jobbing business thtin another which is con
siderably greater. It often happens that a
small town will have a larper business in the
manufacture and ale of some one article ,
and perhaps bo ns truly a trade center for
that article as some other town ten or twenty
times as great ; but the small town which has
begun n general jobbing trade , witn ttie hope
and piospcct of a great growth , is not likely
to observe any justice in being kept from the
fulfillment of its hopes by competitors being
precluded through the more advantageous
rates owhlch are given to the larger town
which it desires to rival. If equal rates will
enable it to compete , its business men are
very certain to think themselves wronged if
they are not given such rates. " .
The commission also concludes that the
rates from Chicago to Omaha are not the
sum of the locals. If they wcro as for ex
ample , if the Chicago & Northwestern weio
to make the Omaha rates the sum of the
rates from Chicago to Clinton and from Clin
ton to Omaha they would bo considerably
above what they are now. What this carrier
does is to make a through rate disregarding
the Intermediate rates in doing so ; there is
ilo sum of rates about it. It does precisely
the sjmo in making the rate to Lincoln , Fre
mont , Blue Springs and other towns named.
This certainly Is not illegal , the commission
holds , unless Omah.i has in law some rijht
to consideration in the making of latcs su
perior to that of other Nebraska towns.

lic lauds was reached , Mr. McShano moved
to nracnd it by reducing the amount to $30,000 ,
Ilo made a short , but surprisingly vigorous
attack upon the special agency branch ot the
general land oflleo In which ho declared that
he knew of his personal knowledge of ex
penditures from the special agents' fund for
the procurement by perjury , etc. , of false
affidavit ! * , which were used in the persecu
tion of honest settlers in Nebraska , and ho
intimated broadly that more money was used
In persecuting good-intcntioncd pcoplo than
lu the prosecution of frauds. Mr. MeSlmno
has only made two or thren
short speeches since ho has
been in congress , and the ono
ho made to-day was very brief , but it attract
ed nn attention which amounted to little less
than a sensation.
Ho wus followed by Mr. Laird , who loft
his seat on the republican bide and went over
among the democrats to denounce in the
broadest and bitterest terms , not only the
Into commissioner of the general land ofilco ,
Mr. Sparks , but the general policy of the
ofllco , as it relates to spec ! il agents. Ills de
nunciation of Sparks for suspending the
homestead laws wus oxtromoh ( personal. Ho
said that Sparks suspended claims and then
suspended laws. Ilo was glad that these
suspensions hint finally resulted in the sus
pension of the laud commissioner. Hu np-
phiuded the president /or what ho termed a
courage which led hjarto kick Sparks out of

to pay for the work lioing done honestly.
Mr. Hundull ftpolto for the report of the
committee and thoiMit that the amount
should bo increased rather than decreased.
Ho said that the responsibility should rest
with thu administrators of the law and not
with congress , whose duty was fulfilled
when it provided money for performing the
work. Mr. Handull said that Sparks was
an honcbt man above temptation ;
that his removal wus a public
calamity. Ho added that the rnmoval of
Sparks was not the the work of the presi
dent , mid that the responsibility was elsewhere -
where ineanlng with Barretury Lamur.
Mr. McShano's ' amendment was lost by a

The City Fathers Meet Uiulcr tliuMost
Adverse Circumstances.
This is how it happened dead straight.
The Salvationists made their first appearance
in South Omaha last night about half an
hour before the city council was supposed to
meet. Whether they were afraid of the city
council or the residents is not known , but
they came prepared to boat a hasty retreat ,
as they Brought neither band or baggage.
They came in a wagon , and they didn't get
out of it while in the city limits. Some ouo
must have given them a pointer , for they
stopped in front of the city council chamber
Just as though it was the wickedest place In
town. Songs of triumph greeted each coun
cilman as he approached the corner , and a
short interval of meditation followed his dis
appearance into the cellar or rather city
hall. When the last one had disappeared ,
the wagon drove away and the count-Union fern
n time wore left to themselves. They had
been asked to be there at 7:30 : , so they wcro
all on hand at fourteen minutes to 9 , and the
roll was nt once called. All the members
were present , but it was found that Pcto
Henncssy and Tommy ICano , who were ar
rested for fighting , had kicked out the back
of the cells and disappeared. No time was
lost in finding out whether they had ever
been at a council meeting before or not. but
business went on just as if nothing had hap
pened. When the reports of standing com
mittees were called for , Councilman Bnyliss
asked permission to make a few remarks.
Ho said it had been stated in ono of the
South Omaha papers that the charges pre
ferred against the police judge had been
brought for the purpose of getting the city
attorney in his pluce , in order that ho ( Uay
liss ) might become city attorney. Ho denied
it , and said if the position wcro vacant to
morrow he would as soon take his life as
take it. Ho then moved that the rules be
suspended and that Theo L. Elliott , who had
preferred the charges against the judge ,
should bo hoard.
The motion was carried , and Theo was
hcaid. Ho said he had made the charges in
goodfaithwithout malice , and for the bone-
lit of the jwoplo of South Omaha. Ho ad
mitted that Attorney Eagerton was right in
paying that they should have been preferred
or signed by n councilman and that they
should bo specific , and ho asked that the
council appoint a committee to receive his
evidence and then proceed as they deemed
best. Ho cited the statutes in support of his
views as to how an impeachment could bo
Attorney Edgerton replied in n strong
speech , and inndo n point by showing that
the statutes quoted were for county officers
only , and not for municipal. Ho In turn
cited the clauHcs governing tbo present raso ,
tind Insisted that the accusations should bo
made according to the ordinance. The mayor
and council were evidently of the same opin
ion , and It was ordered that the charges bo
presented specifically by Friday morning ,
and the case bo heard that night.
About this tlmo the rules wcro once more
suspended , but without the formality of a
motion. Officer Lundgrcn ran in a drunk
by the name of Fritz last name unknown.
Ho at once commenced to address these pres
ent. "Ach , Moln Gott , co Is ol gustola. I
vus a burglar. Take all I'vo got. Das Is
richt. Shust do vuy in Soud Omaha. Nim
all was ich hap. Led mo oud. I'vo got

chair ruled that Fritz was out of order , and
ho was put into the cells at the buck of the
chamber and told to kci.-p his .mouth shut ,
"Keep stllll Vat for I keep still I 1 bet
hundred thulers you know inn. Vat for 1
keep still , I tell you I Das all right. I fix
you. Vero is das bolicoman , by criposl

The loading of ordinances was then taken
up , and ordinance No. 01 was read by City
Attorney Doud. It was to vote $3:5,000 : for
the building of the Q street viaduct Fritz
evidently thought thut ho was lined M5.000.
"Ach , Gott ein Himmoll , vet vas dot Vero

The Flurry Which the hatter's hotter
Caused Tncsdny Nligtit.
CMnyor Hroatch was seen yesterday by A
HKG reporter , who read to him the follow
ing , nn extract from has communication
sent cm to the city councils "I
mnko the assertion without fear of contra
diction that influences arc , nnd have , from
tlmo to tlmo , been brought to bear upon the
board to favor contractors as against the
city , nnd these by members of the city gov
ernment , who are paid to guard and protect
the city's Interest. "
Mr. Broatch was asked if ho would nama
tno members of the "city government" to
whom ho referred , but ho said ho would glvo
no names.
Speaking of the fact that ho had been or
dered to appear before the council to tell
what ho claimed to know , Mr. Uroatch said
the council could not order him to go before
them , nnd would not go before them unless
ho felt so dleposcd. If they should request
him politely to do BO , nnd
In n manner becoming to the
official position of both parties , ho might
think differently of the matter. Dut the
council could not ccmpol him to do what it
had no authority to order. Ho adhered to
his statement In the communication in sup
port of the statement of the chairman of the
board of ptibllo works , that he had been
overruled by n majority of that in his objec
tions to paying $110.47 for street-sweeping
not done by contract. Some of the papers ,
ho said , had claimed that ho had accused
certain officials with bribery. Ho had done
nothing of the kind. What ho did say was
that undue Influence had been used by coun-
eilmcn , and ho stuck to thu assertion ,
snt. iiinMiion's viuws.
Mr. Holmrod , ono of the members of the
board of public works , was Incensed over the
' letter. Ho it
mayor's pronounced unwar
ranted and n covert attack upon him nnd his
olllcial integrity , so us to give him ( Mr.
Uroatch ) tin excuse to nominate Hodman ns
a member of the board of public works.
Mr. Helmrod said , by way of explanation
of the bill for stn-ot sweeping , $110 of which
wns moro than Mr. Bnlcombo nllowed , that.
the amount was S2.2S5.34 , There had been
some complaint that the street sweeping was
not well done. Ho admitted that fact , but
took circumstance into consideration. .
As a consequence of his o ndmis- |
sion , and that of the other mem
bers of tlio board , the payment of
SH20 to the contractors was questioned. Mr. I
Hchnrod says ho went over all the items
contained in this bill. Ilo found that in j
instances the streets had been swept and the
dirt was left piled along either side of the
street. In such cases ho joined with Mr. >
Balcombo and refused payment. In other
cases the dirt had been hoed into heaps , but *
several days had elapsed before it wns ,
carted away. But ns the weather was had , i
and had been bad for weeks , raining nearly
all the time , necessitating slower work and ti '
larger number of men , ho cut on * half the I
cause of the sweeping , on the ground that j
the contractors had done all the work in as
reasonable a period of tlmo as could Imvo
been expected. In another case , where
Sixteenth street liad not been sprinkled |
ono night , the dust was raised he also al- j
lowed one-half for that though Balcombo
didn't allow ono cent. Mr. Heimrod said
that it had rained during the day , but the
evening sun had dried some dust between
the tracks which a big blow afterwards
raised. The annoyance was only a short ono.
The worlc was done anyway nnd Mr. Heim
rod said that the contractois were worthy of
nt least half the price. Of the 120 questioned
Mr. Heimrod refused to pay &J04.
"Mr. Hroatch talked about my being in
fluenced. There isn't anybody who can in
fluence me , nnd Uroatch knows that. Ho
told mo to stand firm on the city hall ques
tion and I said it wasn't necessary for him
to loll mo that , and ho pronounced it a steal
at the time and what did ho afterwards do )
AVhy , ho went nnd signed it himself.
"Broatch himself couldn't influence mo
and ho ought to know it when I refused to
vote as ho wanted , mo to for the scullawugs ,
Morrow and Wiggins , for inspectors. "

Lord Salisbury Trying to Pull Hla
Party Together.
nut I/lttlo Trtttli In the SonsntlonnI
Humors That Are Plj-lng Around
No Danger That the Minis
try AVIll
Troubles or the Ministry.
( , Coj/rfi/iJ | ; / iSSS by Jamt * ( fortJim ItcnnM. ]
Lo.xnox , Juno 20. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to Tun Bin. : ] Humors of
nil kinds nro flying In the nlr , but I may assure -
sure you that thete Is not much in the most
sensational of them. That the ministry have
had several bad shakes lately It cannot bo de
nied , but nobody will resign. It cannot
fairly bo snld that it has come to bo ncoav.
sary for that. No government expects to got
so important n measure as n local government
bill through parliament without being de
feated on some clause or other. How many
defeats It is bound to take without caving in is
not accurately defined , but it is doubtful
whether the government would abandon
office , oven It the whole bill were dofoatcd.
Lord Salisbury , at the outset of the session ,
gave the public to understand that
ho would not , and there is no
proof that ho lias changed his mind.
Ho nnd his colleagues are sere at
the recent reverse In the house of commons ,
but they can console themselves , If they
like , with the reflection that they have
brought the most of them upon themselves.
t As for Mr. Bclfour resigning , there is cer
tainly no thought of It except in certain
newspaper offices where tno zeal for news la
moro ardent than the love of truth. Bulfour
could not with any decency desert his col
leagues , At the present moment thcro nro
no greater risks than there were. The gen
eral position in Ireland is not much worse '
than it was , although public feeling is cer
tainly not becoming moro favorable to the
policy of coercion nud imprisonment. Bnl *
four has gained grcnt applause for his firm
ness and courage , and now , If ho were to fly
from his post , ho would bring great contempt
upon himself. Some pcoplo say ho has hud
moro praise than he deserves , but ho must
know perfectly well that thcro is no escape
from his post jiow. Whatever happens ho
must stand fast , nnd you may safely regard
reports of his resignation as entire fabrica
All the same the ministry is weaker than
it was , and day after day its condition pal
pably changes for the worse. Lord Salisbury
has called a meeting of his party for tomorrow
row , which is in itself a sign that something
is going wrong. Tlio object of the meeting ,
as I understand , Is to pull the party together.
That is nn admission that it has shown a ten
dency to go to pieces. The truth is that the
King Ilarman bill offended many of the
slaunchcst supporters of the government ,
the local government bill has estranged many
more , and the minor blunders of the govern
ment have put the whole party in a false po
sition. If the talk which is current in the
house of commons finds any expression at to
morrow's meeting , Lord Salisbury will un-
poubtcdly hear a good many unpleasant
truths. But at these party meetings every
thing is generally cooked before hand. There
arc people who arc looking for baroncclcs or
peerages always ready to move resolutions
of unabated confidence in the best govern
ment that was ever seen. Sometimes an
independent member may speak his mind ,
It is just possible that ho may inako his un
welcome appearance upon the scene to-mor
row. Aye , the election will give an oppor
tunity for protesting against tactics which
select candidates who have little chance of
success merely on account of their supposed
claims upon tlio paity. Thcro may , ' per
chance , bo an attack upon the Churchill
party , but I Imagine it would not pass un
answered. It would scarcely add to the
peace and repose of the happy family. Wo
shall sec.
Perhaps the Irish members were not well
advised this afternoon in pressing Balfour
to state whether there was any truth in the
story that ho had resigned. It gave him the
opportunity of turning the laugh ngainst
them. Kx'ory occasion of this kind 11 eagerly
sei/ed by his admirers as affording fresh evi
dence of his wonderful genius mid pluck.
Mr. Sexton was not ns skillful as usual , but
now that ho has returned to worlc there it
not likely to bo any lack of wit or dashinif
