lixcoi.v , Neb. , April 20. [ Special Tcio-
gratn to Tin : Bnn.J The chemist at Ann
Arbor to whom was submitted an nnalvsls of
tbo contents of the stomach of John Shcedy ,
the murdered man , has finally completed his
work and reported. The result Is ono that
will probably save Mrs. Shcedy from a felon's
punishment , us the chemist declares that
thcro Is no trace whatever of poison In the
stomach of the murdered man. Ho adds ,
.however , that morphine might have been
given , but ns the evidences of that drug pass
nwny In n few hours of COUMO ho could llnd
no trace of It In the stomach. It lj therefore
thought that the death of Shcody was caused
cither by morphine or by the blow from the
cano In the hands of Monday McFnrlnnd.
Ono or two of the physicians who saw
Slieedy before his death declare that ho
showed evidences of morphine poisoning. As
the imyslclans who held the post mortem
found no blood clot In the brain the mor
phine poisoning theory Is thought to bo the
correct one , but as there Is nothlnc to prove
It Mrb. Shecdy will probably go free.

general sentiment among the delegates is
that the prlco Is too high , but thov do not
want two registers. The result Is likely to bo

Dr. Orville W. Owen of Detroit claims to
have discovered in the Ilvo trreat works of
Lord Bacon a cipher confession of the mur
der of William Shakespt-'am , the so-called
Bard. of. Avon. The .cipher ptatos tha
taking "advantage "of his' position , ho
threatened to reveal to King James the real
authorship of the plays and blackmailed
Bacon to the extent of 20,000. Ono day
Shakespeare became too insolent in his de
mands , the nobleman drew bis sword , and In
the blindness of Uis rage struck the actor
dead at his feet. Bacon then severed the
head from the trunk , embalmed It , inclosed It
In a leaden box with a written parchment ,
and burled it at a crossroad , where , by the
English law , it could never bo molested. In
the cipher uro found the most mlnuto direc
tions us to the locution of that box. Dr. Owen
has worked for years continually to bring
about a full demonstration of his discovery ,
and now ho is going to publish the whole
thing in book form. Ho declares that when
ho makes public the cipher a child can cosily
read tbo story.

TOPEK , Kan. , April 20. [ Special Tele
gram to Tin : BGI : . ] Lovl Dumbauld , chair-
nan of the people's party central committee ,
uts added a now complication to the already
nixed political situation , which the call fern
n third party convention has brought about ,
> y addressing an open letter to the Kansas
armors In which ho denounces Frank Mo-
Grath , president of the alliance , In the
> lalnost possible language. The letter Is the
outgrowth of the circular Issued ono week
ago by McGrath In which he demanded that
ho southern farmers leave the democratic
> , irty and Join the Independent movement.
Pho reply of President Livingstone of the
Georgia alliance declaring thut McGrath had
10 right to dictate to the southern farmers ,
ms provoked a great deal of criticism. Mr.
JumbaulU takes for his text the statement
nado by McUrath that unless the south
would desert the democratic party the north-
vcstem farmers would go back to the rcpub-
lean party , and savs :
"I nm authoritatively Informed that Mr.
\IcGrath mute ; this announcement without
nstructlon or authority of the Kansas alli
ance and without the approval of his fellow
ofllcors. Neither has ho any authority to
speak for the people's party of Kansas ,
or for alliance voters on this subject.
' . therefore feel called upon to state that the
people's party of Kansas is In the field to
stay and has'no Intention under any circum
stances of abandoning their third party
novoment und returning to the old party
lues. "
President McGrath refused to discuss
Chairman Dumbauld's letter , stating that lie
lad not scoj It In print and could only know
of it through others. For the same reason ho
refused to answer questions concerning the
notlves which prompted President Living
stone's ' reply.
"I myself was opposed to a third party
movement , " ho said , "but the people I rep
resent demanded It and I could" only speak
for them. I believe the people of the south
ire as ready for tno third party movement as >
wo are , but many of their leaders oppose it.

Cincinnati covention on May 19 , but there
will bo enough representatives there to assure -
sure the success of the conference. "

session the alliance caucus decided to make a

petitions were sent the legislature from the
counties which compose his district pravlng
for his impeachment. The house investigat
ing committee was in session ton days and
the indictment returned contained the same
charges made in the original petitions.
The cost to the state by the impeachment

but his auditor was removed from otlluo.
The district ever which Judge Botkln pre
sides is in the extreme southwestern corner
of the state , and has been the scene of the

foolish enough to bclievu thorn , It feels as If

qulto sure of anything unless the war depart

the Indian troubles and the only hope for tha
Indians. The Sioux delegation , whllo nt
Washington , was thoroughly manipulated by
the Indian bureau. Some of tbo Indians were
made to say what they know to bo fnlso
about the army , and others claim they were
silenced when they wanted to give facts.
Many things were published which they
never thought of saying. Captain Leo called
up Hollow Horn Bear , one of the delegates
from Rosobud. The Indian denlrs all thd

never .spoko a-r.ilnst the army. The Indians
who returned from Washington say they
went thereto ask for military agents ,
but were badly treated by the Indian bureau
and wuro prevented from saying what they
wished to say. I got my share ot ubuso , too.
