UNDER THREATS OF MURDER
A Wealthy Man Abducto n Young
THE CRI'ME COMES OUT IN OMAHA
SIic Tolls Her Torrihlo Rxitcrlonco
to Dr. Diirj-cn , Who Kcficuos Her
and Send * Her to
Bon atlonnl Abduction.
Ono of the boldest and most sensational
cases of abduction ever known In Omaha has
Ruudonly come to light yesterday. The pcrsoa
abducted Is no less than Miss Mny Minimi , a
prominent young society lady of Klgin , 111. ,
nnd the villain who performed the daring and
dovllsh deed la J. ( J. McAdnins , a wealthy
retired business man from Providence ,
H. I. , and who Is ever fifty years old. The
woman was rescued by Dr. Duryca , of this
city.Miss Mlnnrd first met McAdams at Provi
dence wliilo visiting there with relatives n
few months ago. He became greatly infatu
ated with her , ns she Is a young woman of
rare and delicate bounty , and proposud
marriage. She , however , declined. Ho
pressed his suit with renewed vigor ,
and" meeting with no hotter suc
cess resorted to throats. She became
alarmed and returned to ISlglu lust week. Ho
followed , and llnding the young liuly nlonu
nt the house of a relative , by threats of mur
der forced her to accompany him. Miss
Mlnard is twenty -eight years of ago and has
been in ill health for some time which proba
bly had something to uo with her inability to
devise means of escape from him. They took
the train for Omaha and whllo they were
en route McAdntns fell in with convivial
companions and got drunk. When they
reached this city last Friday evening and
were driven In a cab to the Murray hotel.
Mr. Sllloway HIIVS that they did not register.
At any rate they were given a room to
McAdams had a razor ns well as a ro-
volver. and ho threatened to cut her throat if
she did not comply with his lecherous wishes.
Ho was so badly intoxicated that he soon
fell asleep , and she , unlocking thu door ,
slipped out and asked the clerk
where she could find a clergyman.
Dr. Duryoa boarded at the Murray nt the
time and at her urgent request the reverend
gentleman was called. .She called him to
DUO side and told him the terrible story of
her condition and appealed to him for help.
Thu reverend gentleman was appalled at the
story and whoa ho was assured that It was
true , ho readily offered to give her help.
Ho therefore- sent hur to thn liomu of Mrs.
Henry whoru she was given every attention ,
as between sickness and fright she was in a
pitiable plight. Everything was done to con
ceal her whereabouts but McAdams em
ployed ono of the alleged detectives of this
city to hunt her up and he succeeded In llnd
He boldly demanded the young woman
asserting that she was his wife , while Miss
Alinard bogged her saviors to drive the vil
lain away. A policeman was called , but ns
MeAdams declared that the young woman
was insane , the abductor was al
lowed to escape. Ho was told
however , that if ho returned again that he
would bu arrested. A policeman was posted
to watch the place , and McAdams , fearing
arrest , disappeared.
Tlio young lady was cared for until yes-
tcrdav , when she was thought to bo suftl-
ciuntly recovered to send back to her home
Her disappearance from Elgin had caused
a profound sensation , nnd the report had
gone forth that she had eloped with Mc
Adams , as he had been seen nt Elgin just
before her disappearance. A telegram from
Dr. Duryca , however , corrected this report ,
and to-day she will corroborate the news
in person to her anxious relatives. Dr.
Duryeasays : You can vouch for her. Her
behavior has won our confidence anu our
After the above was written Dr. Duryca
was seen. He says that the young lady in
formed him that while in Elgin McAdams
had threatened the life of John McGarry , a
young man who is in love with her , and
whoso affection appears to be reciprocated by
hor. McAdams is insanely jealous of him
and the reason ho loft Providence in pursuit
of Miss Minimi , was the fear that the young
lady was going homo to marry MeGurry.
Since MeAdams has loft Omaha Dr. Duryca
has written to young McGarry , warning him
of the threats made by his jealous rival.
Dr. Duryca speaks In the highest tqrms of
Miss Miuard and Is positive that MuAdatns
did not succeed in violating her person. Her
bruised arms and side still bear evidence of
her terrible struggle with him , on Friday
McAdams Is a very handsome elderly
gentleman of line address , and appears qulto
incapable of committing this crime. Miss
Minard comes from ono of the oldest uud
best of New England families.
"Up Side Down" makes no preteution to
being instructive nor dramatic. It is simply
funny , so funny that the audience is kept
in n perpetual roar of laughter. Last night
at Lloyd's there was a fair audience.
which manifested Its appreciation of the
Dalys1 acrobatic feats In numerous rounds of
applause. The play Is fairly well understood
by Omahans , and as It Is presented by the
company now in the city , it Is at its best.
It Is an absurdity with numerous openings
for the tumbling feats of the stars.
There was a fair audience at the Now
Grand to greet Mr. A. M. Palmer's "Jim the
Penman" company last night. The nlay has
lost noneof its hold on public affection , and
there Is no doubt that the three remaining
performances will bo to good audiences. The
company is well rounded and perfectly corn-
potent to present the play in u style ncccpta-
blo to any audlencu. cast or west. The stage
of the Grand admits of u beautiful iirrango-
ment for this class of plays , and the ample
room is taiicn advantage of by the present
company. All the principal characters seem
to bo well represented , oven down to George ,
the servant. In the performance last even
ing Mr. F. C. Uangs as James Halston , Mr.
Ilardco Kirkland as Captain Redwood , and
Miss May Hrookyn as Nina are worthy of

of the railway fraternity to the fact that THE

that the meeting was held In Chicago , where

I drafted the bill and McHrido Introduced it

railroad company were to derive a benefit
from. But in Sec. 2 the shipper receives
from the railroad company $3 per day for
empty cars ordered and not delivered In
forty-eight hours. This is a very important
point. The railroad company some times ,
for causes unknown to shippers , hold back
cars , or during' great scarcity of oars , give
them to other roads , as grain on their own
road will necessarily como 10 them some time
anyhow. If this bill should pass it would be
a great benefit to grain shippers and farmers
to dispose- grain when freight rates are

Weaver Makes Thorn Tired.
WASHINGTON , Jan. 10. Regarding the ob
structionist tactics pursuca in the house by
Mr. Weaver , of Iowa , it is stated that the
democrats bellevu it would bo useless for
thorn to discipline Weaver by moans of a
caucus , as he refused to oDoy the edict of the
last one. A democrat member significantly
remarked that the house would not brook
Weaver's action many days longer , but that
If necessary a resolution of expulsion
would bo brought In. Such an ex
treme , however , is hardly to bo expected ,
especially as Weaver is merely exercising
the right which the rules accord to.hlm.
Some of the republican members contend
that the speaker should decline to recognize
Weaver to make his filibustering motions.
They claim that although such action on the
part of the speaker would bo in the nature
of n despotic exercise of power , It would bo
justified by the present exigency , and would
bo in accordance with the precedents set by

Dns Moixcd , la. , Jan. 10. [ Special Tclo
pram to Tim BBC. ] The Nntionitl Farmers
ill I Ian co began Its annual convention hero to <
iluy , with representatives from the states of
Iowa , Illinois , Wisconsin , Minnesota , Ne
braska , Kansas and Dakota nml Washington
territories. A committee on credentials
consisting of Messrs. Allen Uoot , Nebraska ;
A. Wardell , Dakota ; A. I. , . Stunt * , Iowa ,
was appointed , Reports were received from
the different states , Mr. N. 11. Ashby report
ing for Iowa that thorn were MW ullinucus In
tlio state , with eighteen county organizations ,
Ho stated that the organisation of farmers
had had a great influence In matters of legislation -
lation In this stntu , mid would continue to
force matters of interest to them upon the
attention of the legislature.
The president of the national alliance , Mr.
J. Burrows , of Nebraska , reported for that
state that the allliiiiL-e had formerly been
unsuccessful In several ventures and after
wards gettinst down pretty low was begin-
nine to piclc up again.
Ho had been a delegate from ncaton
county to thn llrst anti-monopoly convention
in Iowa. Ho gnve something of the course
of procedure in Nebraska , .showing how In
that stnto the farmers in their early days of
organization had fallen into thu hands of one
who was utterly unworthy. This was
Church Howe , who has been a member of the
national republican convention , and who has
bribed his way into the present Nebraska
legislature ; who bribes his way into churches.
Ho Is a vice president of a railroad company.
Ho wont Into a county and made a proposed
railway survey , intimating that he was going
to bo president of the senate , with all that
that meant. Ho was a railroad man from
the ground up , and ho didn't bellovo in the
honor of man or woman , hut went on the
principle that everybody has his price. This
man had been president of the grange and
that had been a misfortune whieli could not
be boon forgotten. They had also en
tered into manufactures which did not
work. There were no people , ho
asserted , mo rogrnuml down under the heel of
monopoly than those of Nebraska are to-day.
The farmers' alliances had at ono time been
very successful. Thcro had been O'JO of them ,
with a membership of ! tUOO , add it was rec-
ognl/cd ttiat they hud the balance of power.
Hut they had held a fatal meeting at Hast
ings in which the alliances were resolved
into a political party , which proved their de
struction , They went down , and down , and
down. Two years ago there were about six
of the faithful. Some who wore anxious that
the movement should not go down , drew
their checks and putthe alliance on its feet.
Tlio idea had to bo overcome that if they
Joined the alliance they had to leave their
own party. They had made their
organization a secret ono , which had been
greatly to their advantage. It Is now
free from debt. Though not political , their
aims are largely political , bnt not through
any distinctive political party. Ho believed
the time was coming when the best of all
parties would unite on those great popular

In the afternoon session President Burrows -
rows delivered the annual address and the
reports of other executive olllccrs
\vero recoivod. Much time was spout in dis
cussing whether the alliance should turn it
self into a secret organization for carrying
put its work. The prevailing sentiment was
in favor of the idea , and some plan to that
effect will probably bo adopted before the
convention adjourns. The discussion brought
out somu facts from tlio Dalcota delegates as
to the work of the alliance in that territory.
It was stated that thu alliance had an insur
ance company of its own , including over
10,000 policy holders ; that it bought agricul
tural implements directly from manufactur

TUB Hr.K.l An Inturostliig suit is on. trial In
.IndgoTulev's . court regar.llnff the. rightful
ownership of S.'OO.OiM worth of property. A
paper forty years old is the connecting link
In the suit , and to add to the interest it is al
leged that it Is n forgery. Over forty years
ago William Price , who owned property In
Chicago , placed it In the hands of his brother-
in-law , George W. Noble , and tiion went to
California. The gold fever had just
broken out , anil the land owned by
Prlco had but very induilnito value.
Price 1ms never been heard of since. Noble
built a planing mill on the propnrty and re
garded it as his own. Finally Noble died and
loft the property to his heirs , and now the
heirs of Price have arisen , and nro demand
ing nn accounting with the heirs of Noble.
The Price heirs contend that Price loft his
property to Noble only in trust , but that
Nobly appropriated it. The heirs of Noble
hiivu a paper which purports to bo a receipt
given by Price to Noble in l lll
for jw'RO , which was described as pay
ment in full for the property conveyed in
trust to Noble. The Prlco heirs claim that
it is a forgery. All export testified that the
signature to the receipt purporting to bo
Price's was not the same as other signa
tures. which , it was admitted , were Price's.
Price's ' heirs also demanded to bo allowed to
subject the * writingon the receipt to
chemical tests. The expert said that a
chemical test would demonstrate whether
the ink was forty years old or new ink. The
attorneys for the Noble heirs object to the
test , as they claim to bo afraid of spoliation.
The judge thought that an important point
and took it under advisement. The case
promises to develop interesting features.
