LINCOLN , Feb. 7. )
The testimony In the celebrated Beers case
closed to-day about noon. As has been
Rtatcd , the defense set up the plea of insan
ity , nnd the fight has been fought upon tins
lino. It has been nplcy , vigorous nnd
iwlntcd , the state doing Its level best to con-
Viet nnd the defense to save the man from
the gallows , llcers lins been seemingly In
different thus far In the trial , and If unsigned
n part to play In the drama , ho has played It
well. The state Is fully conversant with the
story of the crime , It is us familiar to the
readers of the press ns though it were com
mitted yesterday. There is therefore no
reason for repetition.
Louis Mo.vcr testified to-dny that the pris
oner hud told him nt some time during the
past that ho once fell upon n stone nnd re
ceived injuries that affected him peculiarly
Blnce. Prisoner's actions at times since con
vinced him that ho had told him the truth.
I. Lansingtestllled that Beers had fre
quently told him since the tragedy that ho
didn't care to live ; that his sweetheart was
dead , and that death would unite them In
the bettor world.
Policeman Ireland testified that the pris
oner had frequently nsked him for n knife
with which to kill himself ; that his actions
had been strange on many occasions , and
that ho believed that Hccrs was not mentally
Bound , Judging irom his actions nt divers
limes during the past.
Many other fragments of testimony of this
class were Introduced during the trial. Drs.
Hlnokley and .Simmons wore called In re
buttal. They testified Unit they were well
acquainted with Beers , but that they hud
jiovor scon any indications of Insanity ; that
they believed him to bo mentally sound.
County Attorney Stearns addressed the
Jury on the part of the state just after din
ner , and nt this hour ho Is in the midst of his
argument. J. II. Strode and t. W. Lansing
will follow In the order named , and the defense -
fonso will again bo given to n Jury ; guilty or
not guilty again tilings In the balance.
Judge Klold was on tuo bench In the equity
court room. He was greeted this morning
with a complaint from the members of the
bar. It Rooms that the facilities and conven-
iencesof the room Unit has been occupied are
inadequate to the needs , nnu the complaint
sot up the fact In very plain terms. There
nro 200 coses on the civil docket , and a-1x4
room certainly wns a little small to accom
modate the attorneys necessarily Interested.
Bllllngsley , Webster and Magoon were ap
pointed a committee to wait on the county
commissioners to see what could bo done.
This resulted in the transfer of the court
room to the sheriff's ofllce. Mclick kicks ,
and asserts that ho Is now crowded out. So
It goes , but the fact that this world Is full of
trouble and annoyance is again verified.
Jerry Hnrrington is again in a bad way.
Ho came Into court this morning and stated
that Mary Brenncn was causing him moro
trouble ; that she had again disregarded the
order of the court , came to his house and
vowed vengeance , nnd that ho wanted her
taken into custody. Mary is after Jerry , and
it seems that she won't bo contented unless
her name is changed to Harrington. This
chestnut is a familiar one in court circles. It
is understood that the court has ordered
Mary tr > bo taken Into custody.
FiOMRWJIAT I.IKK DISClll.MINATION.
II. M. Bronson , ot Albion , states that ho
Is engaged in the business of selling agricul
tural Implements ; that the Union Pacific
railroad company Is a corporation organized
under and by virtue of the laws of the United
States of America , nnd owns and operates a
line of railroad within this state ; that the
railroad connects Humphreys , Gcuoa.'St. ' Ed-
xvards and St. Paul with Omaha ; that the
distance from Omaha to Albion is 134 miles ;
to Genoa , 11 a miles ; St. Edwards , 123 miles ;
Huunmreys , 117 miles , and St. Paul , 175
miles ; that the rates charged for the trans
portation of goods of the Ilrst class by the
classification in use from Omaha to Albion
nro unreasonable , unjust and too high ; that
the respondent discriminates against
Albion by charging more for the
transportation of goods , wares and
merchandise , shipped under what
are known ns flrst class rates by quoting
rates and fixing rates on the class at lower
figures , to places situated at a greater dts-
tauco from Omaha than Albion Is from said
To Illustrate the unreasonableness of the
rates charged the following comparative
table is submitted :
To Genoa , 113 miles , 47 cents per 100
To Humphreys , 117 miles , 50 cents per 100
To St , Edwards , 133 tulles , 53 cents per 100
To Albion , 1H ! miles , 59 cents per 100
To St. Paul , 175 miles , 53 cents per 100
Wherefore , recites the complainant , the
honorable board of transportation is asked
to sit to investigate the allegations , and
furnish such adjustment as equity and Jus
tice may demand.

The Odd Fellows of Lincoln lodge , No.

organization last night. The lodge organized
January 82 , 1S8U , with but ton members , but
it has grown Into ono of the strongest nnd
most energetic lodges of the city or stuto.
Visitors from all parts of the state wore in
attendance and commended the work of the

Charity lodge , No. 2 , Daughters of Kehoknh ,
were introduced into the lodge and surprised
the brotherhood with nn invitation to par
take of a banquet prepared by them nt the
corner of Eleventh nnd M streets , but it is
needless to say than it was accepted and
furnished the most enjoyable fcnturo or the
occasion. The service was line. Words can
not inuko it stronger. Toasts and responses ,
happy In effect , enlivened the hours and
added much to the gononil enjoyment.

City Mnrclinuts nnd CnpltnlUtH Unto
( UK lor the rity.s Bout-lit.
The city of Onialu , throughout all her In
dustriul und commercial tributaries , Is again
engaging in that activity Incidental to the
opening of another year of prosperity. The
merchants nro turning over their stocks , the
artisans are getting ready their tools , build
ers are preparing to erect the buildings they
have contracted for , and money fro.n abroad
is beginning to swell in the volume In which
it has hcrclotorc been blowing Into this city.
This is n season which oueht to bo Im
proved. It Is not too early to prepare for the
spring , summer nnd nutunm work. It is not
too early to make provisions for n material
and permanent advancement mid develop
ment of the city , In keeping with these
features which have thus far dlstln-
inilslio.l the city abroad. Omaha wants
manufactories of all kind * , because
manufactories , when well placed ,
arc a source of wealth and power. She
wants more business houscs.moro residences ,
nnd moro citizens. She can accommodate
nil of those who come , and indeed nil who
may come for many years. To these facts
the attention of our people tins been for
some time directed. Everybody agrees that
n great deal may be done , nnd that this year
will sec it done under the Inspiration of tlio
prosperity which dawned upon nnd blessed
the country surrounding us.
The mnnufucturer's bureau of the board of
trade is composed of C. F. Goodman , Otto
Lobeck , Edwin Davis. Thomas F , Tuttle
nnd T. C. Brunei- . With regard to the
course to be pursued the coming year by this
body , Nason , secretary of the board of trade
was spoken to. He said :
"The new manufacturing committee , or
the one chosen since the last orgiuilrutlnn ,
has held only two meetings , mid ns yet hn.s
not fully disclose. ! their plans. Their pro
ceedings , however , have boon characterized
by it spirit which Indicates that they are
fully awake to the necessity of securing and
fosteringnll enterprises that will assure par-
nianent employment to labor , and thus In
sure the continued growth and prosperity of
' The committee , I think , " added Mr.
Nason , ' 'will follow out the line of policy
adopted last year that is , they will give
prompt attention to nil .applications received
from parties Indicating 11 desire to locate
here , ana to furnish assistance so far ns they
have the power to all those they deem
worthy of aid. An effort will bo made to
nvoid nny Inducement to those who would
not bo likely to succeed. It must bo under
stood that this is no easy matter. Of thn
subjects already presented for the consider
ation of the committee , quite " > per cent are
from parties known to bo in impecunious
circumstances. There is quite n number of
proposals for tlio establishment of In
dustries , only a small proportion of
which nro considered worthy of attention.
Tim bureau is of the opinion that it is detri
mental to the accomplishment of a result to
publish anything in relation to the applica
tions until the industries nro secured.
Other cities learn of their work through the
press , then serious competition sets in and it
becomes n matter of the biggest bonus to get
the Industry , whatever it may bo.
"Omaha lias certainly boon a profitable
field for the laboring classes , during the
building boom she has experienced the past
two or three years , which has hardly u pui-
allol in tlio history of any city in the country.
The enormous bulk of grading.of laying pave
ments nnd putting down streets , the digging
of sewers nnd water mains , the building of
cable and street railway nnd motor lines , and
the hundred and ono other gigantic works ,
have nil furnished occupation for many
thousands of hands , skilled and unskilled ,
nnd made Omaha one of the most active and
bustling cities in the country. But every
day the city is becoming moro and moro
finished and the labor growing out of this
building era will fall off. Thence It behooves
all appreciative citizens to lend every effort
toward securing permanent industries , which
will furnish employment for our largo labor
ing element. This board is alive to tlio im
portance of its duties nnd good results
uro certain to .iriso from their exertion.
They will always be found ready to take
prompt action on such subjects as may from
time to time present themselves for consider
ation , nnd they may nlso bo rolled upon for
nn earnest effort to secure the best attaina
ble results for the general good of Omaha. "
Other members ot the board thought that
a public mcctincr , called to consider tlio best
incnnB of fostering manufacturing interests ,
would bo n ( rood thing. This would produce
a now support for the bureau and develop
the enterprise of our capitalists.

HAMiifjio , Feb. 7. A Hamburger corre
spondent publishes a letter signed "Otto
Hicrich , " which gives an account of recent
uvonts in Samoa from a German point of

States steamer Nipsie supplied the "rebels"
with ammunition through Captain Clcary , of
the United States steamer Adams , nnd bo
deplores the fact that all efforts of the Gor
man consul to stop the sale of war munitions
to the natives have proved futile.

Notes CohccrulnR the Heoetit Acci

The work of tearing down the ruins oc
casioned by the Meyer disaster wa con
tinued yesterday , the force of men being In
creased to nearly forty. The walls of the
two-story brick building which was occupied
by Boycr & Co. nnd D. C , Dunbar , have
been torn down to the first story. Teams
wore employed hauling nwav such lumber as
it was thought worth the lubar to save. The
balance will be given to the poor. A number
of men wat working wit hln the interior of
the Meyer block yeaterday , removing burnt
timber anil flooring. This work is attended
by Hindi danger and great care has to betaken
taken to avoid further accidents. As soon
as these timbers are removed nnd work in
the building can ha done with moro safety ,
n force of seventy-live men will bo put to
work tearing down the walls until the second
story Is raachod. From that point down the
walls nro considered perfectly safe. Williams
& IIolTstcad , the contractors , estimate that
It will take two weeks to complete the work.
Messrs. Dnnbur & . Co. have not yet de
