hatchet from under his coat and suddenly
assaulted Stone , felling him to the floor. He
was hacking at his head whoa Mrs. Stone
came , hnd Pclhcam turned upon her , striking
at her viciously and cutting her head as she
warded off the blows. Stone had partially

has addressed a communication to tha grand
Jury now Investigating the murder of Chief
\ of Police Ilenncssy protesting ngninst the ill-
treatment of the Italian prisoners conllnod in

tioned today about the contents of his letter
to the grand Jury. Ho said that some
time ago ho wrote to Mayor Shakespeare -
pearo complaining of the Ill-treatment
of the Italian prisoner. ' In the parish prison
und received a reply that his complaints were
unfounded. A few days ngo the consul vis
ited the prison ' " "I was' astonished by sev
eral of the prisoners showing marks of violence
lence upon their bodies. Ho said the men
were terribly bruised and ninny of them
claimed to hnro been robbed of the rings
worn on their fingers nnd of other valuables.
.It wus on this testimony that Sig. Corto
informed the grand jury of the status of
things and culled attention to the treaty ex
isting between Italy nnd tbo United States ,
whereby the Italian prisoners are entitled to
the same treatment as those of other nation
alities. The sheriff is very much chagrined
at the matter becoming published , he having

Watched ,
WASHINGTON , D. O , , Nov . 10.
For some reason'probably the disappoint
ment growing out 9f tbo recent election , an
Impression prevails among politicians In
Washington that President Harrison Is con
templating an early nunouncomontthat ho
will not ho a candidate for rcnotninatlon.
The president has given no indication to anyone
ono , not oven to his most Intimate friends ,
as to what ho intends to do In regard to the
submission of his name for a renomln atlon ,
nnd the belief prevails among those Imme
diately around him that ho Intends to take
no direct stop toward furthering his own
political interests , but will do the best ho can
ns a president for the people and trust to the
tides of public oplnian as they may form nt
the tlmo a nomination is to bo mndo.
In other words , the president believes
that if his administration has proven satis
factory to his party it will bring about his
rcnomlnatlon without any effort of his own.
Tbo prominence of Mr. Blalno , as n politician
and ns a moving spirit in the present admin
istration , is beginning to grow und is develop
ing us rapidly ns the belief that
Harrison will announce himself out of the
Held for a renomlnatlon. Thcro can scarcely
bo found a politician in Washington , in any
part , not even' excepting the most ardent
friend of tlio present administration , but that
contributes the unsolicited belief that the
iCcretnry of state will bo ns prominent If not
moro conspicuous in the convention of 1893 ,
than ho was hi 1SSS , notwithstanding the fact
: hat ho ha ) not done and is not doing any
nero to promote his own prominence than ho
did two or throe years ago.

now occupied by Senator lugulls , upon the
resumption thnthisrc-clcctionls notussured ,
as caused a good deal of comment In Wash
ington upon the probability of tbo senator
succeeding himself. Surely no republican
would bo so greatly missed In the senate as
the gentleman from Kansas , not oven except
ing "Honest John" Sherman or the venerable
nnd able .Edmunds of Vermont or Mr. Alll-
sonTvof Iowa""ns''woCld'bo ' SenatorIricalls : '
The Kansas statesman Is always reserved for
emergencies Mn debate and general scalping
work In all kinds of political action on the
floor of the senate or in the causus. Ho Is
beyond all question , the ablest debater In
congress , nnd probably tbo strongest repub
lican orator that can bo placed upon
the stump and among his colleagues nnd In
administration circles It is not believed that
his services nnd worth could bo so greatly un
appreciated In his own state as to leave his
succcsilon hi doubt. The senators who have
telegraphed to bo recorded as desiring his
chair in the event of his failure of re-election
have been answered by theoQh'cr.s of the sen
ate that no ono here believes Senator Ingalls
will not be re-elected.
"Figuring and dickering on both sides , "
says Colonel William II. Morrison , interstate
commerce commissioner , "will bo < the
order from this time until the Illi
nois legislature meets In January ,
1S91 , nnd somebody's calculations may
receive an upset. One thing is certain that ,
save for his tariff record , General Paltnor
will not prove entirely acceptable to the
three legislators , outside the breastworks ,
who are holding the balance of power In the
pending senatorial contest. Undoubtedly an
attempt will bo made to trade the speaker-
ship for a United States senutorshlp as was
done in the case of Pnine's and there may bo
a similar outcome to such a transaction as
that which resulted In sending Senator Far-
well to Washington , It is incumbent upon
him to obtain all turco votes of the legislat
ors who do not train with his partv , whereas
the best two out of thrco will do for General
Palmer. All the democratic members of the
Illinois legislature are pledged to General
Palmer , having been committed to his cause
in the nominating conventions and the
same is true in the case of Senator
Palmer so that for the tlmo being a llkclihood.of but two names being
placed before the legislature to compote for
thu United States senatorial prize. ThereIs
nn anomalous condition of affairs in politics
when three men are so situated that they
can control a couple of hundred , and yet such
Is the exact situation in Illinois today. What
the o'utcomo will bo , Is a mutter of the merest
conjecture , but ono thing Is certain , there are
lively times ahead at Springfield. Such a
contingency may arise as that which wrecked
my prospects to the time when the legislature
was tied between the two great parties , ono
hundred and two men being on each side.
Death came to the assistance of the repub
lican party by removing n democratic legislator
later , nnd a member of the opposite political
faith was chosed as nls successor , "

Congressman Springer , of Illinois , who is
In the city , Is out in nn interview today in
which ho says that Mr. Cleveland will be the
nominee of the democracy in 1892 , and thai
there will be harmony within the rnnks ol
the party In New York stato. Mr. Spr.ngor
believes that Governor Palmer will succeed
Senator Farwcll and predicts that the reap-
portlonmont bill , which will bo adoptcu this
winter , will not increase the present mem
bership of the house , as the ratio of represen

THEIR i.rrri.K nonac.
A number of democratic congressman in the
city , notably Mr. Springer of Illinois , are try
ing to foroitnll nn extra session of the Fifty-
second congress by saying that the election
bill will bo resisted in the senate nnd again in
the house during the coming session to an
extent' which will defeat necessary leglsla
tlon und make nn extra session necessary.
This step will undoubtedly bo taken with n
view to forcing the president to call an extra
session. The democrats know us well as re
publicans that extra sessions of congress nnd
legislatures nro generally disastrous to the
executive convening thorn , as in the Instance
of the recent special session of the Ohio Icgls
Ittture , which is proving tb unfortunate not
of Governor Campbell's rsr. Jt may bo

whatever for the report that Major McKinley

In the public building an appropriation of
000,000 , Is desired for the completion of the
Omaha postofllco mid court house. As Is
rtnown , the limit of cost of this Improvement
s $1,1200,000 , , and half of this amount has al-
cndy been appropriated.
For the completion of the now postoftlco

\Vhllo there Is llttlo in tlio estimates for
Yobraska , us can bo seen , there nro other Im
provements needed In tlio state for which
congress may ho Induced to mnlto appropri
ations. Two cities hnvo a stronp supiwrt for
public buildings , Hastings and Norfolk. The

es nro In an eligible position for consider
ation this winter , and Rood nriruments will
jo brought forward in their support.
Tlio friends of unstintrs started in for a
200,000 appropriation , but the committee on

junto quarters for the government oillclals ,
ilenco the ilijht must bo made over this Ijit-
ter sum. The scMnto lira already passed fav
orably upon the measure. Many good rea
sons will bo urged for giving Hastings a pub-
lo building , among which nro the facts that
_ t Is the third , city in conuner-
mcrclal importance Hi the state , and
the necessities of the government
it this place arc increased because terms of
the United Statcs'court nro held there.
Norfolk has also luckily got its measure
through the senate. Tlio appropriation de
sired was $100,000. and the senate allowed
: ulssuin , but the house committee on public
tiulldinirs says that $75,000 Is enough. Hero ,
too , the United States courts as well the
postal business must bo accommodated. The
3lty , it Is argued , is entitled to n government
building because It Is n brisk business place
and is the center of a flourishing and enter
prising section of the state.-
Sidney does not want an appropriation of
money so much as it wants an appropriation
of land. Congress Is to bo asked to pass thb
necessary legislation donating to the city
twenty acres of land from the Fort Sidney
military reservation , which Is desired for
cemetery purposes. Thcro will bo no trouble
" '
In passing" this measure when rcache'd on the
calendar , as Fort Biduoy bus been ordered to
bo abandoned.
It cau bo'seen , although Nebraska Is n
big state , that comparatively llttlo is nsked-
of the general government.
Of course the people of the state are Inter
ested In the general legislation of congress ,
ns llko nil other communities , but the aim in
this article has been to give only such mat
ters as nro especially designed for Nebraska.

may bo worth while to givea statement of

I'Yom It the following facts are obtained
ami will bo road with interest by Nolmishans
inrtlcularly and the friends of Indian cduca-
, ion generally :
The Lcnon school Is located nn the slto of
the old Pawnco Indian agency and was
orlplnaliy' opened In the abandoned agency
Buildings after tno removal of the Pawnees
, o Indian Territory. The school was opened
February 'JO. 18SI , with 74 pupils from Hose-
uud agency , Dakota. Before the cloiO of the
year the number was increased to 11HJ of
whom Sil we're boys mm IW were girls , aged
from seven to twonty-lwoycuraund nearly
all fresh from tlio twees , the blankets and
the camps. Tlio. school has boon maintained
with a quota of about ono hundred and sev
enty from year to year until IbVK ) when con
gress made nn opproarlatlnn sulllelent to
jarry not less- than iiJ5 and it ;
is expected that 2JU will bo la
attendance before the close of ( lie year.
The following tribes wore represented last
year : Sioux , Omahns , Wlnnobngos , Poncas.
Arlckarces , Muuc'laus , Arupahocs mid Sou-
tecs.Tho school farm proper consists of .120 acres
owned by tbo government , but an additional
120 acres is rented and cultivated. The
school campns , buildings , orchard , pasture
and meadow occupy 100 acues , but nil the re
mainder of the land is actually under tlio
plow and ns will ho seen below has beeu a
source not only of Instruction but of profit.
The school was opened in 18S4 In a single
building , three stories In height. Improve
ments have been mndo from year to year until
til now there is a largo and" well arranged
plant comprising capacious dormitories , suit-
nblc shops , a hospital and all the necessary
outbuildings representing a valtio of not less
than SiVi.OlX ) . Last year a two storv brick
costing fiOO was completed and this year
ono moro will bo built at a cost of about
§ 10,000. In ISSU-'JO grcnt activity was main
tained , and In addition to the brick building
nbovo referred tc a line wire fence was
erected enclosing the farm and orchard ,
frames were placed in tlio vineyard for the
support of the vines , two coal houses , ono
water closet and two liny racks were built ,
while the barns and sheds were enlarged and
ten-acres were fenced for stock yards. On
Arbor day : JOO trees were planted by the pu
pils and employes. A large fish pond has
bscii excavated , which Is to bo stocked by the
fish commission. This pond will also ho
utilized for llshlng mid skating , The sum
mer's supply of Ice will bo cut from it.
Superintendent Bnckus entered upon his
duties ns superintendent April 1 , ISS'J. The
former superintendent had been suspended
and the school was In a chaotic condition.
Thcro wore nearly two humlreu pupils en
rolled , but no attempt to gruilo them had
been mndo. The farm was neglected. "Tho
harness shop and printing onico were both
closed , Everything was in disorder consequent
quent upon the unsettled conditions
resulting from the suspension of
the heai of the Institution. The employes
hud not been paid for some months. The
pupils employed from time to tlmo had not
received any pay for a year and they were
discouraged. Mr , Backus took hold of affairs
with a firm hand and today the farm , the
shops , the school and the promises are In ex
cellent order ; the employes are competent ,
faithful and earnest ; tlio pupils are contented
and great progress Is being inadu. The
harness shop was reopened last January.
The printing oftico was put in order and the
"Pino of Peace , " the school paper , resinned
publication. The school Is graded and every
employe and pupil knows his duty.
The school needs now a school building In
which thcro shall bo flvoor.sU recitation
rooms inul a largo assembly hall or cliupol. It
is expected Unit this building will bo pro
vided before the end of the fiscal yea'r ,
The scholastic or literary work of the
school is not much different from that in n
white school , cxeupt that pupils of all ages
are received and the complete course Is not
.equal to thogrnuimarcouraoof publloschools.
It fulls something llko two years short.
However , Indian pupils who have been
educated at Genoa uro ublo to compete with
whlto children having no better oppor

The Industrial work at this school Is ox-
coptlonully gopd. lu addition to thu larger

year. In thu various shops no "team work"
