LIN'COI-X , Nob. , March M. [ Special to
THE BEB.I Judge W. V. Allen ot Madison
and M. D. Jackson of Nohgli whllo enjoy
ing the comforts of after breakfast cigars
and easy chairs m the rotunda of the Capitol
hotel wcro approached by Tun Bnr repre
sentative this morning.
"What Is the farmers' alliance doing1 up
your way I"
"Getting there Ell In Madison county , "
eald Judge Allen. Wo have a voting popu
lation of 1SOO and of this number the alliance
lins n membership of 700 to 1000. It will
number the latter figure to say the least
within tha next thrco months. The local
ticket will bo captured by the alliance bag
and bsggago. Organizations have been
perfected In almost every country school
district in the county. "
"Docs the alliance propose to work in the
primary elections , or not ! "
"Quito generally , I think ; but an Inde
pendent ticket Is probable. If the machine
captures the county convention then look oul
for breakers. U Is ncodloss to say that In
that event the republican tlckol would bo do-
fcatcd to a man. "
"Is there any difference between the
grange as run a few years ago and the alli
ance ! "
"Well , yes , I should sav so. The grange
wasnfcorlnfa boycotting institution. And ,
moreover , the allinnco Is backed by n better
nnd more Intelligent class ot farmers. Now
they go to our merchants and grocers nna
say wu propose to buy our goods of you Just
the same ax in the past. But In turn they
exact or expect help In the election of men to
ofllco , local nnd legislative , who bollovo that
the farmer is worthy his biro nnd will work
for him nnd his Interests. The result Is
merchants nnd grocers nro not slow to
pledge loyally und support In ull laudable
off or IB they may mane to that end. In short ,
the alliance Is after cheaper transportation.
It favors government control of railroad ,
telegraph and express companies. In our
part of the state alliance men let the national
banking system nlono. The most intelligent
farmers of Madison county arc pushing the
move for ull there Is In it. "
"Is the alliance booming In the adjacent
counties so Madison 1"
"Without a doubt. The alliance Is as
strong , If not stronger. In ICnox than It isIn
Madison county. 1 learn also that It is
growing very rapidly in Grcoloy , Whcolor ,
Boone mill Stnnton counties. West and
north of Whoolcr I cannot speak so well. I
taito It , however , that , the entire northwest
part of the state will bo In the alliance
column before the Ides of November.
"Whom does this alliance favor for gov
ernor ! "
"In the event of a general revolt and an
Independent ticket General Van Wyck
would probably bo the man. Of the proml-
4-uont republican candidates mentioned , haw.-
over , Richards of Fremont ! probably The
strongest. General Lcoso has u good many
fricilds , und amonc the sqldicrs Governor
Thuycr is popular , but Madison county
voters will not stand anything that savors of
Dor cy. " '
As to candidacy for state treasurer , secre
tary of state , auditor of public accounts , at
torney general and commissioner of public
lands nnd uulldings , what's the lay ) "
"JCo opposition to Hill whatever. Ho will
bo rpnomlnntcd state treasurer , , without a
doubt. The fact that some of the banks or
money changers oppose him is enough to in
sure this , Wu are non-ccmmlttal us to tbo
other ofllccs ; tlio fouling is strong that
good men bo nomtnutod or there will
uo n landslide. Cowdory has made mis
takes that our pcoplo are not apt to
look over. 1 will say right hero that Mr.
Dorsey will not represent the Third congres
sional district in congress ngaln very soon. "
"Mr. Jackson , how are matters in your
county ! "
"Pretty much the same that Judge Allen
suggests them to bo In Madison county. I
will any , however , that the Independent
local ticket will carry In my county unless
the republican traders exercise inoro Judg
ment in convention than they have in the
past. With the present status there an in
dependent ticket Is a sure thing. The alli
ance , too , is strong with us , nnd it will have
organizations in every school district In the
county before fall , 1 learn , aUo , that it is
crowing in strength very .fast in Holt
county. In n voting population of 2,000 fully
ono thousand nro nlllanco men. As the mat
ter stands today state politics is In a very
muddled condition , and it is hard to predict
what the outcome of the campaign will be.
Richards Is the personal choice of tbo county
for governor. If Attorney General Lcoso ,
however , conies out ns n candidate it will bo
found that ho has u good many friends in
the district. "

A. S. Collins Hnld to Bo n Candidate
far IlsinlHi\l ,
Ex-Rov. A. S. Collins , now in Ponca , No-
llgh Or some ether city In tiio northern part
of the state , but whoso homo Is at Thirty-
seventh and Howard streets , In this city , Is
reported to bo n candidate lor dlsn.lstat from
the M. K. church for the second time on the
charge of Immorality. Hov. Collins his a
weakness for women that In the p&st has
brought him Into seine of the most sensa
tional scandals ever hoard of in the Metho
dist church , and this has again brought
trouble on his head.
He V.Collins was once a Methodist preacher ,
but owing to bis-short comlngn , was expelled
from the ministry at Galesburg , III. , live
years ago. Since then ho has been citing out
n comfortable livelihood ns a book agent by
fulling an encyclopedia. Ba still clings to
the prolix Of reverend to his name nnd
whoncAor ho strikes n | town bo gen
erally offers to fill the pulpit for tbo
local Methodist Episcopal preacher and
the offer Is Invariably accepted , Ho Is a
very magnetic man , readily pleases the la
dles of the congregation , and thereby paves
the way for a fat harvest when ho goes from
house to house with hit book.
A well known attorney who has been
brought Into close business relations with
Collins Is authority for tho-statement thai
the prcsUlng elder is after the ox-tninhter's
This gentleman reports that Collins , who
Is a married man , has been In the habit of
taking nnotbcr woman on his travel * whom
ho has been representing as Mrs , Collins ,
but who docs not boar the slightest rescm-
bluncu to tha real wlfo.
The preacher book njjont generally stops
with his pjcudo-wlfu ut the parionngo
of the Methodist minister of the
town that ho Is canvassing , and U
Is alleged that It was through this Eourco
that Ins Iniquity became unveiled. Word
was nent to Presiding Elder Clondcnnlni ;
concerning the bold Ihdlscretlon of tha pious
visngcd ngont , nnd that church olllclal U ic-
portcd to be collecting what cvldenco ho can
against the erring brother to bring - him to
Today a reporter went to Dundco Place ,
the homo of Presiding Elder Clcndcnnlng ,
out found that ha Is out of the city.
The oldei'n son was nt homo , however , nnd
ho acknowledged that his fatncr hud been
discussing the short-cominss of Brother Col
lins and ha believed that testimony was be
ing gathered for Collins' trial before the con
( n addition to his shortcomings Collins has
financial trouble ahead , as ho is threatened
with legal proceedings provided ho does not
pay for furniture costlne several hunnrcd
dollars und settle about f 150 duo In rent.
Collins has had u very unsavory record In
the past and nas become notorious for his
violation of tha seventh commandment.
Flvo year * ago ho was pastor of tlio First
Methodist Episcopal church nt Galesburg ,
III. , nnd ho startled the citizens of tnat cul
tured community with u record of iranurity
from which thai ( pilot clly has scarcely yet
recovered. Tno women with whom ho was
alleged to have boon unduly intimate at the
time were all members of his church , und a
do/on in number.
Ho lied lo Canada and u body washed up
on the shores of Lake Erie was supposed to
uo his. On Iho strength of this his wife at
tempted to get the insurance on his life nnd
the companies wltn which ho was
Insured employed dotcctlves to investigate
the matter. After a long anil skillfully con
ducted chnso Collins was discovered in ono
of the principal of Canada dis
guised as an English cockney. His head
was shorn and he was wearing dark green
eye glasses. The finishing touch to the now
role was a loud suit of clothes. Had not
one of the detectives boon well acquainted
with him in Galesburg , the erring preacher
would probably never have boon rccocntzed
In the English dudo.
At the next meeting of the ministers of
thai conference which was held nl Galva ,
Mr. Collins was summarily expelled from
the church.
It is reported that the woman who figures
In the latest scandal was ono of tliosa asso
ciated with him in the previous escapades at
Mrs. Collins , who had hopoJ that her hus
band had profited by past sins and would do
bettor In future , Is grief stricken ovur his
latest escapade. A reporter of Tun Hue
called at the residence of Collins u few
wooics ago when the report of his escapades
in northern Nebraska .first reached this city.
The scribe found the lady in very dollcato
health und was dissuaded by n neighbor
from broaching the matter to her. It was
learned today , however , that Mrs. Collins
has been Informed of her husband's dis
graceful conduct nnd thai certain members
of her church are rendering her such atten
tion and assistance as they Und necessary.
They are Brought Pnco to Face
Iho Murderous Gun.
The three murder suspscts have been
brought together In the jailor's ofllco in the
county building. There were present Sher
iff Boyd , County Attorney Mahotioy , Jailor
Miller and a couple of private citizens. Neal
nnd Shullonborgor were brought into the
room about the sumo tlmonnd without know
ing whom they were to expect were sud
denly confronted by Sherman. Ncal looked
nt him most intently for u minute ,
pursed up his lips , the lower ono of which
trembled. But that was nil. There was
nothing to show thai ulthrr Identified the
other though it scorned ns if Neal made up
his mind to in no way commit himself.
"Do you know who this is ! " asked the
county attorney of Sherman and Indicating
"I suppose It's Ncnl. " That was all ho
said and then his oycs sougnt the Iloor of the
Shcllenbcrgcr was then asked if ho recog
nized Sherman aud curtly uuswored that ho
did not know who ho was.
During the Interview the last mentioned
sat with his head oil his hands moodily gaz
ing upon the Iloor.
When the Interview , which was almost fu
ncrcal in ita frigidity , had boon concluded ,
some otio remarked to Sherman thai if bo
were pul lu Urn same cell witn Neal. the lat
ter would do him up.
"Ho mighl doll now , " „ said Sherman. "DO-
causa I'vo bean sick , bill In n fowdnys whan
1 gel well I wouldn't mind giving him n
couula of rounds. Ho might do mo up , but
that's the kind of business ho's engaged In I
guess. " There was a little grim humor In
the last remark which the party to whom It
was addressed scorned to appreciate.
Yesterday morning Deputy Sheriff TIgho of
Cnss county passed through Iho city on his
way homo. Ho came up with Sherman nnd
the Douglas county olncUls yesterday even
ing and wont to Lincoln to discover the eun
with which the murder was committed.
Sherman had told him that tha weapon had
boon given him by Sbollcnborfsor after the
deed nnd ho had asked what he would do
with It , suggesting that It bo sold.
To this Shelionborgur objected , Insisting
that it bo sold , buried or thrown away.
Sherman took the weapon , ho claimed , and
burled it. Ho described the spot us being
under u pile of boards on the top of whloh
was n number of windmill funs. Tbo boards
were taken down und the ground was exam
ined. A soft spot was found whore u hole
had evidently been dug. Tha loose earth was
shoveled out , but no guu was found.
Whether Sherman had hluiholf removed
the weapon and foi gotten where ho con
cealed l .tho second tlmo , or Intended to do-
culvo the officers Is not known. Bui il is
not thought that Iho latter supposition Is
tenable because Sherman has received every
attention at Iho hands of Doputh Sheriff
Tlghe , who has been uniformly kind to him.
Deputy Sheriff Tigha may depend upon
ona thing , vU , that tils many very kindly
favors to the members of the press will not
soon bo forgotten , nnd they only await an
opportunity to show their appreciation ot his
When scon yesterday afternoon , Sherman
Bocined to tnko pleasure in tolling the news
paper men that ho had been talking any
thing , everything und nothing In particular
ns regards tils connection with the murder ,

The members of the committee- wore mot In
Chicago by Messrs 1)rake ) and Bonestoel , who
wore delayed for a day. They wore very fa
vorably received by Mr. Hughitt. Tim
president listened attentively to all they
had to say and after carefully considering
nil tholr arguments expressed tilmselt an In
favor of recommending to his directors the
completion of this line as one of their first
actu In the line of the extension of their sys

friendly sentiment nnd attitude towards tbo

During the interview Mr. Huahltt took
occasion to refer to the corn rate agitation ,
stating that If the farmord would so organ

Altogether , the interview gave great en

evidently feel confident that the building of
the extension is a question of a very short
