.flro broke out simultaneously In two places
on the north sldo of Main street in Blue Hill.
The ono at the opera house , nt almost the ex
treme cast end of the street , was extinguished
by the efforts of O. C. 1C. Lolgman , Mrs. B.
II. Munson and the girl help at the Muuson
Louse. It was beyond question of Incendiary
origin , the whole side of the building being
saturated with coal oil.
The flro which caused the destruction of
the city originated In the rear of the I. X.
Li. paint store , and in spite of
every effort spread until It had wiped out
blxtccn of the leading business houses of the
place and destroyed the merchandise and

B BE. ] The exact figures on the population of
the th'rco leading cities in this census dis
trict , namely , Fremont , Grand Island and
Kearney , can not yet bo given , but TUB Bun's
correspondent learned today approximately
what they will bo. Fremont's figures will
not vary ono hundred from 0,500. Informa
tion received in different ways from Grand
Island and Kearney is to the effect that those
two cities will show about the same popula-
tlon ns Fremont , and It will probably require
the ofllclal returns from the census bureau to
determine which of the three is the largest.
It is understood from n man who has just
liccii at Kearney that the enumerators there
have been notilicd by local parties interested
In n big showing that they will bo expected to
find at least 8,000 people in that town.
The citizens of Fremont are generally dls-
nppointed at the result. Thov had good rea
son to believe that there would bo a hotter
showing. But Just now islhomoit unpro-
pltlous ttmo for counting the people In tills
city there has been In the past year. Hun
dreds of men have left the clty'tcmporr.rilv
on summer sheep drives nnd railroad work in
the Black Hills and Wyoming , where local
contractors have contracts. These liillucnces ,
together with the numbers unavoidably
missed by the enumerators , make an impor
tant difference in Fremont's showing.

There was great surprise around the house
at noon today when it was announced that the
coinage committee had held a special meeting
and agreed to report Iho silver bill with n
recommendation of non-concurrcnco in the
senate amendments and ask for a conference
committee. This action was expected , but
not so. soon.
Chairman Conger told your correspondent
yesterday that n meeting of the committee
Would not be held before the latter part of
this week and u report could not bo expected
before next week. Late last night ho was
told by the committee oti rules that it would
bo best , since there was a majority of the
house from the republican sldo in the city
mid a number wanted to leave , to get his
committee together this morning in special
meeting and report the mcasuro back for im
mediate consideration. This was done and
the bill was taken up before 2 o'clock. After
the adoption of a resolution providing that
the previous question shall bo called and a
final vote taken at 2 o'clock tomorrow after
noon , the democrats know they were in the
minority , and , us they are not together on the
subject of frco coinage any moro than the re
publicans , they made no effort to defeat the
resolution. As stated In these dispatches last
night , there is no doubt that a § 1,500,000 or
4,500,000 ounce , with u full legal tcndcrclauso
can bo easily passed in the senate now.
Senator Teller , the leading frco coinage ad
vocate in the upper branch of congress , said
this afternoon that no resistance would bo of
fered to a 4.500,000 ounce or $4,500,000 bill if
it had a full legal tender clause.
This is , however , an era of congressional
surprises and ono cannot always foretell the
changes a night or day may make.
SUllbTlTUTi : FOlt THE OUI01XAI , 1'ACKAOB HII.L.
Those who hnvo been preparing speeches to
bo delivered in the house when the bills re
sultant from the origiual package decision
should como up for action will now have to
revise them. The judiciary committee of the
house , which has been considering the Wil
son bill for the past ten days , has agreed
upon a substitute , which will upset much of
the elaborate preparation which has been
going on. In the modified form it is made
applicable not merely to liquor , as in the sen
ate bill , but to every article forming the sub
ject of interstate commerce. This is a de
cided advantage , as it relieves the measure
of any objection on the ground of being in
vidious class legislation , and it is equally applicable -
plicablo to liquor or lumber , oleomargarine or
oil , providing merely that when it has reached
its termination of transportation and is held
or exposed for sale in any state it shall bo
subject to the local laws. By a provision
more lengthy than the rest of the act the con
stitutional'principle is nfllrmed that there
shall bo no discrimination in favor of the citi
zens or product of like character of the state
where anv given article is held or offered for
sale and the rcafllnnanco of the right of police
regulation for the sake of the public health.
The bill is skillfully aud artfully drawn. It
recognizes the state's right doctrine in mat
ters of public health , a proposition that no
one would question. It leaves the opponents
of tlio measure but little ground to stand on ,
and that upon the theory that state legisla
tures , from ono cause or ( mother , might bo
induced to pass a mcasuro under the guUe of
being for the public health when such was
not the case. The ditllculties of this position
nro two-fold : First , it assumes that mem
bers of state legislatures will bo actuated by
improper motives or will bo false to their
oatlis , an assumption not tenable in law and
which no member who wants to stand solid
with his constituents can afford to put for
ward ; and , second , the proviso in the act in
regard to products of like character. Under
thi limitation the courts would undoubtedly
hold as invalid the discriminations recently
sought to1 bo placed on the statute
books of , several states against Chicago
dressed beef until it could bo
ntllrmatively shown that given shipments
whoso sale was sought to bo objected to were
in such condition us to bo injurious to health.
The vote In the committee showed that in
this new form the bill Is likely to encounter
but little opposition , Mr. Adams alone having
voted in opposition to the proposed substi

to the plans and specifications of the Mis

discretion of the commission such portion of
said sum as they may deem proper shall bo

localities on any part of tlio river within said
limits ; improving Missouri river between
Great Falls imd Sioux City , $350,000 , to bo

Tlio commerce committee of the house devoted -

ation of interstate coimncrco questions in

made lawful to take evidence of railroad cases
before Justices of the peace or other properly
authorized state officers was very warmly
discussed by the friends of the bill , ns ft
would save the expense and great iucon-
vcniciico of the present system by which the
Interstate commerce commissioners are com
pelled to bo present In person nt every hear

from Washington , merely to take
evidence which could bo taken" just ns well
before state authorities , while thu opponents
of thu bill are adverse to n mlugllng of state
officers In u federal tribunal. Tno Dill was
discussed for over an hour. No final vote
was reached , but the prospects are favorable.
The bill providing that there shall be no
higher charge for carrying oil In barrels than
for transporting in tanks was nlso carefully
discussed. The practical elTcet of the bill
would of course ue to nmko the railroads
carry the oil barrels free of charge. No vote
was reached , but the outlook is nn adverse re

ings until nil Its moft important interstate
commerce bills have been considered and re
ports received thereon.

Both of the Nebraska senators look with
favor upon Mr ; Elaine's proposition to oi > en
commercial relations with our South and
Central American neighbors and to begin
the trade with sugar , not removing the duty
without n corresponding equivalent.
Senator Paddock said today : "I nm with
Mr. Blaiue on the main proposition. I nm in
favor of any plan which will extend our for
eign markets without assailing our homo in
dustries. I believe that Mr. Blnino's propo
sition to use the rcqioval of the duty on tlko
sugar for the purpose of securing concessions
In South America , which will give Nebraska
farmers a larger marKct for their crops , is
wise and far seeing. In response to the cry
for a free breakfast tdblo we arbitrarily re
moved the duty from coffee when wo might
huvo securbd the satno result together with
largo concessions in the way of the re
moval of duties from American products in
Brazil. As consequence Brazil put
a corresponding export duty on our coffee
and the cost to our people was not dimin
ished. While I believe in the policy of pro
tection to homo industries and believe that
through the stimulation of manufacturers our
farmers receive a larger homo market for our
products and nt the sumo ttmo nro preserved
from the ruinous competition on the farms
which the throwing into agriculture of thous
ands or operatives now engaged in manu
facture would cntttll'tho proposition to re
ciprocate with countries like the South
American countries , having no manufactures ,
seems to me ono which will commend itself
to the people of the west. A scheme of con
tinental reciprocity on this basis would , I be
lieve , bo a good one. In the future I look to
see a largo portion of bur western products
seek the gulf by rail and by river and if wo
can find a market from7 the gulf southward
by water it will bo a much better ono for our
western farmers than the ono by rail aud
ocean by way of New York to Liverpool. "
Senator Maiidcrson says : "I have liot
given the matter any special thought , but I
tun favorable to it. I am a protectionist , but
not a prohibitionist. Our western people
believe in protective , but not in prohibitory
duties. Wo believe In revising the tariff
where wo can safely do so , for , after all , "
continued the speaker , laughingly , "tho tar
iff is a local Issue. Mr. Bhilno's proposition
is ono that will no doubt ( commend itself to
the people of the west. Our farmers want u
market for their produce , our great rivers
flow to the south and it is in that direction
that wo look for an outlet. Wo ought to do
what wo can to develop friendly and com
mercial relations with 'our southern neigh
bors , and Mr. Blalno's suggestion , if acted
upon , will doubtless benefit us greatly. "

i'ul Plot The Murderers
OTTAWA , HI. , O'uno 24. [ Special Telegram
to Tun linn. ] Ono of thomostdtabollcal mur
ders ever committed In Ln Sallo county was
perpetrated In Ottawa at n late hour last
night. The discovery was made at 0 o'clock
this morning , when Mattlo Brown , the ten-
year-old son of the tenant nt Allen park , was
ecnt out to look for the cow. Some twenty
yards from the house , in the midst of Allen
park , the boy came upon the lifeless , gory
body of a well-dressed man.
The lad shrieked for assistance and' the no-
lice were soon on the scene. The body was
that of n stranger , but was soon recognized
by people from the Clifton hotel as that of
David Moore , a traveling man from Omaha ,
Neb. , employed by the J. B. Scott lumber
company of Merrill , WIs.
A terrible gash , nearly two inches long , on
the right temple , a broken jaw and five fear
ful gushes upon the back of the head told the
tale of murder most foul. Beside the dead
man lay a coupling pin of th' ) kind used by
the Burlington railroad company. It was
covered with blood and matted hair.
The pei-son of the murdered man showed
that ho had been struck from behind , as ho
had evidently fallen backward and had no
Warning of his doom. Near him were found
a woman's pin-so containing $2.05 , and near
this a woman's hat pin. The murdered man
was minus watch , stud , collar button and
cuff buttons. lie had carried a fine gold
watch and his stud and collar button were
first water diamonds. Nearly $150 pinned to
the inside pocket of tlio blood soaked vest
hud been overlooked by the murderers.
Shortly after the discovery of the murder
a woman was seen nt the corner of Main and
Laramie streets by Charles Bowermastcr , u
painter. She was busily engaged in tearing
up u paper. When she had walked away
Bowermastcr , who hud heard of the
murder , picked up the scraps of paper and
putting them together found that the paper
find originally been the route map of the
He notified States Attorney Blake of his
find and the woman was promptly arrested.
Under severe pressure she confessed thatsho
was with Moore but refused to say who her
Moore bad been about the city all day yes
terday. Ho is known to have visited a well
known resort on the west side yesterday a f-
ternoon. Ho was seen at about 10 o'clock
lastiilght making his way over the Illinois
river bridge toward Allen park.
When the above facts had been communi
cated to the woman , and when
shov'ns also informed that she was
known to have taken dinner with
Moore on Monday , she broke down utterly
and made u confession.
She said that her name was Knto Weimar
and that she was married to Charles Ford of
Spring Valley about two weeks ago. She
mot Moore yesterday afternoon and ho agreed
to meet her at Allen park at 10 o'clock. She
noted his diamonds and told her husband ,
who had been boarding with her at the St.
Nicholas hotel , that she believed the man had
money and.that they coutd work him.
Her husband and a man named Barry , liv
ing on the north side , followed when she
went to keep the appointment. They went
around the south side of Allen park and got a
coupling pin from the railroad track. She led
Moore to a secluded spot near n house in the
park and a Half hour later succeeded In get
ting him into a quarrel with her.
This was the signal for the murderers.
Moore and the woman , arguing in a low tone ,
had stopped some five puces apart ,
when ono of the woman's aides
Just which she refuses to say stopped
from behind a tree and dealt Moore
u terrible blow on the back of the head.
Ho staggered , and to complete the work
the assassin dealt him a dozen additional
blows , any one of which would have felled
an ox. When the man was perfectly still
they turned his pockets inside out and robbed
him of his stud , collar button and watch.
Both men wore immediately placed under
arrest and lodged in the county Jail. An
abandoned female named Minnie Winter-
ling was arrested and placed in jail. She is
suspected ot having taken part in the affair
as the companion of Barry. The Ford
woman Implicates her In the plot. The mur
der was ono of the most foul ever committed
In the county of La Sallo. The police are
looking for H. T. Baum , a traveling man
who was seen with Moore before the murder
was committed. Ho loft on an early train ,
but the stiles attorney does not attach much
importance to his arrest other than for use
as n witness.

now about thirteen hundred men Idle 1111 $
the business of the rend Is paralyzed.
An order \vtis issued by the strikers nt A
meeting held today extending the strlko over
the whole of the Illinois Central in Illinois/
Wisconsin and Iowa ,
The men insist on the dismissal of SuperliU
tcudent Kusscll , whoso Jnrisdlctloii extends
over the lines in Illinois , Iowa
MA ! Wisconsin. They claim that ho
persecuted many of the men and Imv'fl
many grievances against Aim. The trnubla
culminated yesterday afternoon , when trains
masters were discharged by him , ns men * '
tioncd in thcso dispatches last night. Tha
men did not wish to bo held responsible foff
interfering with the United States mail on
express matter and consequently attached
mall and express 'cars to the engine of thtj
New Orleans mall train today. The general
superintendent , however , refused to start thflf
train until passenger coaenes were attached
and the .strikers warned htm that ho dotulncoj
the mall and express at the company's risk.
General Manager Heck and General Su
pcrintcmlcnt Sullivan had u conference with ,
the strikers this afternoon. The men stated
their determination not to return to worl <
until Superintendent Kusscll was dismissed,1
The only conclusion arrived at was that tha
company would resist the men's demand *
They now await overtures , and It is said that
unless the men return to work tomorrow the
company will proceed to hire new hands. .
The tie up will cause serious trouble , not
only locally , but throughout u largo
section of country , both west and
south. The suburban trafllc of tha
road Is enormous , the largest ill
the United States. Trains run in and out of
the city every few minutes from 5 o'clock In
the morning until midnight and are crowded.
All thcso people , many of whom llvo beyond
the cable car limits , are now thrown upoa
their own resources for transportation.
13ut it is not this that will trouble the com
mercial world. To stop freight traflle on the
Illinois Central means to prevent thousands
of people in northern Iowa , southern Illinois ,
Kentucky , Tennessee , Mississippi and Loulsl-
ami from getting products to market. The
yards In this city are already filled with
freight cars and the stalling of train ) now in
transit will jam every transfer track touched
by the road.
CAIUO , Ills. , Juno 21. The strlko on th
Illinois Central has not extended this fof
south , but only passenger trains left today
and perishable fruit trains have been sent
north by the IIIK Four-road. It Is oxnccted
