WiNNEiuoo AfiKNCr. Thurston county ,
Neb. , July 10. [ Stuff CorrosDondcnco. ]
The citizens of Omaha , surrounded us they
arc with nil the luxuries and conveniences of
modern civilization , little Urentu of
the scenes of superstition nnil un
tutored savagery that nro yet be
ing unacted within the confines of
this thriving nnd progressive state.
Bent upon witnessing the annual celebra
tion of the Wlnnob.igoes , a sort of a red
man's fourth of July , 1 boarded
the Chicago , St. Paul , Minneap
olis and Omaha 5 o'clock train Friday
evening nnd three hours later was in I'ondcr ,
thu nearest , point to thn unency , and the only
town within the big nnd bounteous county of
Thurston. Ponder * Is a smart little city of
possibly lr 00 souls , with handsome public
buildings , churches and school houses , two
newspapers , snug prtvr.lo residences nnd
every essential manifestation In the way of
general Improvement that so murks the ugo
in which wo hvo. It is finely located , near
the rotr.nntln I egan , upon tin elevation , or
11 scries of clov.ulons , that command an en
trancing view of the waving ami blooming
ngrlcultral p.iradiao which environs il com
pletely for mllua nnd miles , beyond the reach
of human vision.
Instead of finding the sccno of the \Vinne-
bago fandango within nn easy stroll of this
charming town , I quickly learned that It was
adjacent to the genoy , nearly if not quite
twenty-eight miles away , upon a ono
hundred nnd forty uuro truct of as line land
ns lays out dcors , allotted to them by the
government especially and exclusively for
these annual reunions nnd weir festivities.
J3ut such a drive , across n rolling uralrio
landgrander In beauty nnd tho. variety of Its
attractions than any picture man could over
hope to paint on canvas , was to bn regarded
in the way of a genulno pleasure , rather
than a laborious discomfort.
Niitim1' * Stvnel .Symphony.
The broad corn Holds stretching away Hko
oceans ot prccn , sang In the breezy tone of
swaying stalk unit waving blades ; that do-
lieious faint , far-away roar , like tlitu which
routes In from the sea at dead of night , and
always to bo heard upon the limitless plains ,
murmured softly , anil those.wlth the blended
voices of rural valley , the tinkle of thoshuup
bells , thn rttatlo of the yellowing wheat and
drone of the clcadtc. In most persuasive
music , scorned to invite ono to make the
journey. Unt n more powerful attraction
than all the UclljjhtR of nature combined was
the assurance of witnessing a scene of wild
jollification by the remnant of a once power-
_ fill nation of America's aboriginal citizens.
This was something not to bo resisted ,
\Vo made the drive , starling from the
Peebles house , oven buforo the sun's first
rays had begun to glint tno tassels of the
waving corn , uut it la needless to enlarge
upon the grandeur and piclurcsqun beauty
of the country through which wo Journeyed.
Throughout this almost endless plateau , if I
may so call it , anil while the whole territory
is almost ono unbroken world of corn , wheat
and pasture land , them nro no settlements.
Hero and there , on the edge of some strag
gling motto or bunch of timber , aro' clusters
of rough habitations , ttiu abode of some
tenant of the Indian lands , and along the
small streams the abandoned hut of some
cowljpy or musKrnt trapper is to bo detected
occasionally. It was but a comparatively
few years ago , when this broad terri
tory was the homo of the buffalo
nnd the antelope , over which
alone the warlike Sioux and florco
Pnwneo galloped their gaily bedecked po
nies , either In conllct with each other , or in
pursuit of the lordly game that was always
found thcrohut Is now next to extinct , . There
nro no buffalo , oik or antelope there now.
The Indian alone remains , and ho is so meta
morphosed in looks and demeanor that it re
quires a considerable stretch of thu Imagi
nation to fancy him what ho was then.
The golden tangle of the midday sun glit
tered amid the scrub oaks that thickly dot
the sloping hillsides , the damp nir of the
valley is full of fragrance , and the serpen-
tlno stream , winding in and out , gave flash
for flush , as wo came in sight of the bo-
bluffed spot whcro stands the agency.
Good Irnlli\v lit thu Agrncy ,
A sharp turn round a Jutting , craggy point ,
the tramp of our tired horses over the little
bridge , a slight ascent nnd wo pull up at thu
door of the one-story log store of the posl
trader , Tom Ashford , n handsome , nthlotlc
( follow , who knows moro about the Indians
than the Indians do themselves , and who is
most generous in dispensing his knowledge ;
tells good stories and tolls them well , and In
> fact is an all round , wholosotiled. good fellow.
A short distance from thu tr.iding post are
the quarters of Captain . H. 13cck of the
Tenth cavalty , the now agent recently ap-
polntcd by President Cleveland. These
quarters consist of n low , rumbling
Bert of a- frame building \ of a do/oh
rooms or moro. There 4ro several
other buildings within the radius of
of L'OO or ! iOOyards , nnd altogether the agency
is well calculated to remind ono of the trad
ing stations upon the oxtrcmo frontier n
s half u century ago , when such places were
the world In miniature , n focus of its pas-
I slons , Its prejudices , its hates and loves. sid
* There were a motley lot of ragged nnd
greasy Indians , bucks and squaws , mixed up
with counterfeit cowboys and country hump-
kins , with the odor of bad whlstty In Ire
nostrils , in anil about the trader's store ,
and after n rather hurried inspection of the
outfit , wo again hooked up our horses and
started to the seeno of the celebration some
two miles further on , situate upon an non
Incnco giving a distant view of the dark
Valley of the Missouri river.
On our way over wo'fell in with a camping
party from Ponder , consisting of Agent
Bock nnd his family , Hon. W. 13. Peebles
and Mrs. Peebles , O. Y. Chlttemlen nnd
wlfo , T. I * . Sloan nnd wlfo , G. S. Hancs. ndC.
M. Howard ami Miss ICatio Tellokamp and
brother. They had their tents pitched In nda
grove of dwarf oaks on the very upex of the
divide , a lovely spot , and wcro enjoying tlio
long summer day nftor the most robust homl
approved American fashion. Wo halted
long enough to quail a couple of bottles of
liudwulsor , right off the ice , then resumed
our journey , with the
sweet strains of man
dolin and guitar , mlngluu harmoniously with
a delicious soprano , a fair tenor ami good
bans , from the merry picnickers bohlpd , filling -
ing all our senses.
Another quarter of an Hour nnd wo were
upon the festal grounds of the Wlnncbago ,
and n thrilling and remarkable sccno lay
spread before us ,
l.o On HU Native Heiirlli.
There were tepees here , tepees there , and
tepees everywhere , crowning the Hdgu us
far as otto could see , nnd specking both sides
of the bluff's , some in regular rows , others ns
if tossed hero and tliero hy some mighty but
unmethodical hand. Tepees of door and JUtw >
skin , tepees of canvas , tepees of carpet wale
rugs , and tepees of scraggy hrai.ches of oak
and willow ; scrawny horses and spavined
ponies , mangy dogs with wolfish
snouts and pointed ears , curs that
looked hko brindle mops , and half
nuked nnd filthy bucks , untidy squaws , ,
nnd cunning , chubby paK | > oscs , strapped on ain
squaw's back or rollltm nnd kicking up in
g' untutored delight In dirt and sand and
loaves , There Indians nil
were of ages , con-
v dltions and kinds from the
, Santco un
arian to the Pottuwattamio baho vnth its
eyes buruly open. Squaws in full dress and
squaws in na good us uo dress at all ; ditto
bucks ; some with plug hats , others with
soldiers' caps , but the bulk of them with n
crow's wing or hawk's tall for head er
ing ; long-haired Indians and - red
Indians : blooming maidens and toothless ! ,
frray-haired , droning hags ; the thrifty red
farmer and the worthless rod vagabond and
gambler ; sober Indians and drunken In-
aiutu , Kood unit bad , lazy and industrious ,
attractive and repulsive , they were all
there on an cqunl level for the ono day
any \Ti\y.
The Ull Sunloo from 'wny north of
Itoiobud Agency , with his smooth-
shaven cranium with Its bafnathcrcil scalp-
look , straight as a hemlock , po > vorftil , ugly ,
kfton-oyed looking fellows , who must have
been topnotchors with the tomahawk and
scalping knlfo In days when poor Mr. t/j
had a show for his whlto ally , The stolid ,
low-bnwcd , snaky-orbed Sioux , in wild holi
day paraphernalia Of coyote hldo , bull's
horns and feathers of the turkey buzzard.
Always sullen , covert , reticent and suspi
cious , yet the nearest approach to the orig
inal aborigine of nil tllat straggling , illy-
clad , frowsy and dirty assemblage.
The quick-footed , sharp-voiced Kloway ,
with his bedizened nnd berlbboncd pony ,
was an Interesting Individual on account of
his picturesque dress nnd proud bearing ; the
slovenly Otoo and crafty S > ae , with primitive
bow and arrow and nbant as much Intelli
gence In his face as you would expect to see
In n chop-houso buckwheat caito ; the round
faced , . lulling and greasy Oitmha , with his
hulky body , bu.iJs , feathers , banded ankles
nnd wtilsky. They wcro all there , ' 'plenty '
big Injun , " too , every ono of them , ns they
were the guests ot the Witmobago , mighty
man , pompous nnd overbearing , on the occa
sion in hand at least.
It is estimated that there were fully 1,300
Indians present , which included a band of
about TOO Wlnnchagos , the rest coming from
the distant reservations of the Santco , the
Sioux , Pottnwattamlo , Omaha , Kloway nnd
Dunning In tlio Mmllclne jr.
The medicine dance was in full blast when
wo reached the sccno , and oven before
making a cursory round of the musbroom
tepee town , wo hurried forward to the medicine -
cine loiigo. whcro jxisilbly 100 warriors and
squaws wuro Indulging In the wild and weird
orgies that distinguished their celebrations
centuries ago.
The medicine ledge was a stucious struc
ture orcclfHl ui > oii the highest point of land
for miles around. It was built of si'rub-oiik
logs , planted iiuriiiht In the sandy soil at intervals -
tervals of six or seven yards. From the tops
of the o , from ono to another , nnd across nnd
back again , wcro stretched thongs of cow-
hldo , until : i very reticulation of thong r.nd
cord had been formed , utwn which was
heaped the branches of the oak and willow ,
ntiij.grns3 , cornstalks and weois : , furnishing a
tolerably good roofing , not only sufllcicntly
Impervious to preclude all discomfort from
tlio Hery rays of the July sun , but to defy a
very thorough drenching in case of incloin-
ent weather.
Kvery available Inch of space on the in I
side of this mrdlclnc lodge , and encompass
ing It to the depth of twenty-flvo head or
more completely roundabout , were half
naked or red-blanketed Indians , as deeply
interested in the grotesque spectacle being
enacted in the contoroftho lodge as whHo
man or woman over was in mugnlllccnt
opera or thrilling tragedy. It was with ex
ceeding dink'ulty that wo were enabled to
crowd our way into a spot commanding a
view of the charmed arena , but ICdward
Hose was my guldo. and his long familiarity
with the Wnnobagoes proved the open
"Jerry Fox" I-oil thn Dance.
Cho-ock-sopii-no-ke-noc-kaw. or Jerry Fox ,
an old Sachem nearly 100 years old ,
was conducting the ceremonies when wo
entered. Hose called him over , and , giving
a short , sharp yelp , the tom-tom boaters lay
down their sticks , the lierco looking Ducks
ceased their contortions , nnd the plaintive
chant of the squatting squaw gradually grow
fainter and laintor , Dually dying out in
gloomy cadences of lingering , mournful
Mr. Uoso Introduced mo to Fox , as I will
call him for short , and told him as nearly ns
ho could in Wlnnobago that I was there for
Tun BEE , nnd was going to write the celebration -
bration up for the enlightenment and amuse
ment of the white reader. The old fellow
looked pioasod , whether ho know what
Koso told him or not , and , with nn expressive
ugh ! ho said .something to a squaw at his
elbow. She disappeared at once into the
crowd , returning quickly with n camp stool
in \ her hands. This Fox took and , placing
it j near the tom-tom b.ind , waved mo to a scat.
I couldn't help but look at the old follow , in
that wild garb , and wonder at the thoughts
that must bo tilling his dusky brain.
There was no monkey business about Cho-
ock-sopa-no-ko-ncc-kaw. Ho was a superb
specimen of what you might have conjured
up his forefathers to have been ; the fierce
nnd truculent warriors of the , wilderness
back in the primeval days of the mighty
King Philip. Tall and commanding , despite
the burden of a hundred years , with a hard ,
cold , austere look in his bronze facowrinkled
with care and ago. Uut his eyes , buried
deep in his bkull , sparkled Hko those of a
mink or a woaacl , and gave no indication of
the long , wild life ho had led. Ho were a
strip of wolf-skin tied tightly around his
head , with the painted tall feathers of an
eagle or buzzard sticumg out hero and there ,
and a Mowing mustang's tail depending from
his scalp lock almost to his heels. His
sinewy , red arms were bracolotcd. with
brass bands , and about his ankles was a
strand of small copper sleigh bells. Cho-ock
had been a mighty warrior in his day , so I
was told , nnd a great hunter. Ho took a
prominent part in the Minnesota massacre
in 1802 , allied with the government , and was
ono of the scouts who chased the truculent
Little Crow into the dense morass north of
Mankato. whcro ho was treacherously mur
dered by ono of his own warriors.
A short , sharp whoop and the weird cere-
moines wore resumed as if nothing had
occurred to interrupt thorn.
On wltli I ho Dunce.
There were a dozen bucks or moro boating '
the tom-toms , hugo tub-liko contrivances ,
feathered and painted , with a goat's skin
stretched across the top , and around which :
tin ) bucks squatted like so many delighted
children. On these the red musicians beat ,
with monotonous system , with long tillable
sticks , bulbed nt the end with chamoii sk In
and cotton. Around these tom-tom In a tors-
was seated a circle of .young squaws , proli l
ably numbering twenty or more , and around
these another row of squaws , old and squalid ,
wrinkled , thin and repellant , while around
the whole were the dancers in the gymnas
tic nnd fantastic evolutions of the great
mcdlcluo. The monotone of the tom-toms
and tho"hi-yil hl-yil kt-yl ! ki-.vil ho-hol !
kl-yi ! ho-ho ! kt-yll k-.vll ki-yll" of the bucks
nnd the squaws together , old voices and
young , shrill and strident , as well as soft
and melodious , inlontncrscd as it w.i.s every
instant or so , by a sharp yelp from someone
of the frenzied dancers , made sight and :
sound white man seldom enjoys. It wa
weird , singular and creepy , yet fascinating
to a degree iucroJIblo , and despite one's
scruples about the danger of disease or ver >
min , ho would find it impossible to tear him :
self away while the orgies continued
and ho had n chance to stay in hens
At an understood signal the din and
dancing were suddenly discontinued ns
quickly ns they began , and In the midst of
breathless silence , Nah-ko-kog-knw , or Wild
Jack , clad in a shabby buckshin suit , em
broidered with strand after strand of red ,
uluo and yellow beads , strode into the arena
via an avenue that had opened up for him
as if by magic , loading a small , dun pony
with ono hand , while in the ottier til
clasped his pipe and tomahawk. lie was
closely followed \Va-ra-ra-chun-K.iw. . or
the \\lilto Ilurso , a tall , slender , half-clad ,
oldish looking busk , who loan second pony.
These were gifts to the chiefs of the visitIng -
Ing tribes , and during the day something
Hko fifty head were given away , a generous
custom that has been in vogue among the
wild children of plain and forest for hun
dreds of years. The nresontation of each
gift was the signal of a sccno of wild
In each instance thojeadors of the ponlos ,
with gesticulations that , 'ooked moro liUo
tight than anything else , nnd n short address -
dross fairly iilssed from between clenched
teeth , would beckon with liU tomahawk , and
the recipient of the Wlnnobago's generosity
would appear. Silently and stolidly ho
would relieve his red cousin of the pony's
halter , and as silently and stolidly leave ha
arena , leaving nil drmonstratlon to the
laughing squaws nnd young men.
Then that short , sharp yelp again , the
monotonous tom-toms , the tquawa1 dolorous
chant , the warriors llorco cries , mid the
stooping , stamping , bending , crouching ' ,
whirling , crawling evolutions of the dancers
would be resumed , only to bo interrupted
again and nguln , ns above related through
out the live-long day.

of some of the features of the medicine , ns

'Long about half past 2 ttiero was a half
hour's cessation In theic ceremonies , during
which all the assemble\ tribes , In squat *
ting , sitting or lollintfpostunu , listened to .1
stirring address by Ho-chunk-ko-no-knw ,
old Hod Leg , the orator of the nation. Ho
Is nn old vetor.xn of the war nnd buftnlo
trail , and was also a government scout dur
ing the Uttlo Crow uprising , Ho would bo
a tlno specimen of the Wlnnobatro wcro it not
for a hugo won on tlio side of his fnco.whlch
ho holds up with ono hand or the other
while shooting off his elocutionary pyrotech
nics. Old lied Leg was followed by Hlnck
Hiiwlf. Hew-Ka-ge-nuck-kaw. Ho was nn
ugly old scalp rulsor , and Is said to hnvo
been hostile to the whites in the Minnesota
massacre. Ho arose and advancing , with a
great deal of dignity , to the center of the
circle , stopped and stood n moment , scan
ning the Immobile faces about him. Then
ho put himself In nn attltudo to speak. It
was nialcstlc , oven If Ulaok Hawk was dirty
and dlshovclod. Ho proudly llunrr the tat
tered robe of iioyoto skins from his powerful
form and stood erect In nil the barbaric lofti
ness and dignity ot person as over
distinguished warrior hoforo. Every In
dian was now nn eager nnd attentive
subject , and the Hawk began speaking with
the natlro eloquence and Impresslvencss of
the Indian sovereign. The fir&t words that
fell from his lips , though soft and mild ,
cautod his lolling auditors to straighten up
into attitudes of respectful attention , but us
ho went on , his language grow less calm and
deliberate , nnd his face darkly flushed with
the feelings within his breast. His little
eyes glowered Hko n wolf's , but the dusky
forms of those wild beings wore as silent
nnd motionless ns If they hadliecii carved
from stone. Ana all ho was talking about , I
afterwards learned from Hose , was the leasIng -
Ing of a few thousand acres of land , and the
bountiful outlook of the mnlzo crop ,
nnd all the time I thought ho was
haranguing of rapine ana murder.
Hlack Hawk through , the dance nnd
the music was resumed. At ono time tliero
wcro fully 100 budczlnod , half naked Indian
vagabonds , . , loafers nnd farmers , leaping ,
i ' Jumping , stamping nndisorcaining Injdellrlous
ecstacy , and the medicine ledge might well
have been taiten for some unhallowed arena
or pandemonium whcro malicious demons
had assembled to enact their bloody and
infernal rites. IJuck after buck fell Into
the whirling multitude , until about nil
within the ruodleino lodge , including Ed
Hose and Tom Ashford , were numbered in
its dizzy mazes. If It hadn't have been for
Tomin ) his shlrtsloovcsandstovoplpohatnnd
Kd , with a gray Scotch suit and straw hat ,
the spectacle might have boon conjured
ute ono of wildcat terror.
Eh-shook-kc-kaw , or Jim Bird , was ono of
the loudest bucks at the ball. Ho was en
tirely nude , save n smalt calf's-hldo breech-
clot and moccasins , but was painted a bright
yellow from the crown of his head to his
ankles , and from the way the bright eyed
squaws followed Jim's grotesque movements
1 imagined ho must be as much of a masher
as ho Is of a dudo. The girls call him PussyCat -
Cat , and ho is the Ward McAllister of
Skunk creek. Wah-stcd-da-kc-kaw was an
other honey-cooler , both in his skill us a
dancer and the Ingenuity displayed in his
make-up. Wah-Sted's head was closely
cropped , save the inevitable scalp lock ,
which was tied full of rod , green and crim
son feathers , while from each side of hU
head protruded the long horns of a Texas
steer , and a couple of big brass rings clinked
and Jingled from his big Koman noso.
Grizzly Bear , Pats-kot-to-kaw , Wah-shot-
stod-eh-kaw , \Vow-nlch-strus-kaw ,
were also star performers , particularly the
latter , who went through the intricate and
devious convolutions of the Winnobago Ger
man with but few moro clothes on than
when ho came into the world. Ho is called
the IJlack Bird , nnd Is said to have run dowr
nn nntelopo a few years ago on the open
plain. Hcw-no-kaw was a scout in the late
rebellion , nnd is a government pensioner ,
drawing $42 a quarter. Ho is an intelligent
follow , a goodpenman and reader , but loves
"pogeneno" whisky fast horses , women
and the ghost dance much more fervently
than ho docs knowledge , and this combina
tion is sooner or later bound to got him into
trouble. Snowball can dance as good ns the
youngest buck in tlio party , notwithstanding
ho is 80 years old , and Naw-sko-ack-kaw , 81)
can Jump over u pony's cack and never
touch a hair. Norf-mo-nuck-ke-haw , with
n black , red and .vellow torso , and old
calico apron for a breech-clot , and a creasy
horse blanket for a robe , was a conspicuous
iiguro In the danco. lie has been to school
at Carlisle , Pa. , nnd acquired a good educa
tion ; still ho would rather lay around in the
little mangy tepees , with the buxom Winne
bago girls , trap mush rats , drink "p.ipcnea , "
and loaf with his people , than clerk in a
white man's store , or carry clay in a white
man's brick yard. Mo-nuck-ki-kaw has a
head on him. Se-gotch-che-kaw , another
raider of ' 03 , and a follower of Little Crow
nnd" Waueouta , is 83 , nnd yet ho won't miss a
chance to tip his fantastic red too if ho haste
to travel from moon to moon to got thoro.
Old Man Eater , Won-ga-ga-rutch-kiiw , is
another very old warrior , in fact so old that
ho cannot oven give an idea of how old ho is.
Ho saw service on the frontier of Wisconsin
n half a century ago , and was a relentless ,
treacherous and blood-craving hostile in the
Minnossotn uprising. Another patriarch of
the tribe is Gray Wolf , a little , woasennd
driod-up old follow , very quiet and inobtru-
slyo , and famous always as an unswerving
friend of the whites.
But to return to the festivities. Toward
evening. Cho-ock-sepa-no-ko-nio-kaw ran
rapidly through the medicine ledge uttering
a series of yelps Hko these of n canine
caught under the fence , and with ono accord ,
but without push or Jostle , the whole crowd ,
bucks , squaws and children , arose and ran
for the hollow in which the day's feast of
roast ox and dog soup was to bo held. The
Indians range themselves in circular rows
and are waited upon by the squaws ,
who can dish up n shovel
full of dog and grasshopper elf
and got it in a greasy pan before a conveni
ent neighbor with n celerity that would
make a restaurant flunky fall dead with ;
onvy. Dog soup is the Wimmbago's national
dlnb , Just the same a. % spaghetti Is to the
Now Orleans Creole , They will cat a co
savory piece of roast beef or pork , but if
you wish to particularly tickle their palates
give thorn dog soup , bu it mudoout of setter ,
pointer , bull or rat terrier ; it is all the same
to the delicate gastroDomlo organs of tno
Winnobago. With the most of them the
first course at a big meal is dog soup , then
some moro and once again , the dessert IB
identical with the emulsion of hair , IS ,
gristle and toonalls that distinguished the
first course , The only wonder is where do
all the dogs como from !
Uonoluilcd with < lumo .
After the banquet came agamoof lacrosse ,
which was about as exciting as a game of
mumbly-peg , then a number of bucks gave
| us iicateii-us-cateh-can wrestle , others feats
of leaping and jumping , and still others ia
display of their skill with the paste-boards
in thu seductive divetiisomentof stud-poker , ,
in which game the ladies are especially dox -
The closing event in the day's progrnn
was thu IIvo milo liorso race , with thirty .
live entries. Thn capitalists of the tribe hud
"thrown in" and raised n nurse of f 101 , adof
which $ , " > U went to the first liorso , & ! l to the
Hoi-owl and U nnd $25 to the fourth nnd
fifth respectively.
This was nuito a thrilling feature , ho
funny part of it being that the last man In
came riding , yelling and screeching and illg -
glng his heels in tils pony's sides with all
the vohoinoncoand oxcitnment that signal -
izod the winner of first money. In fitct ; aler
all thu winnow were in , the balance nave
lot up a particle , but kept on riding for ilea >
life , just as if a portion of the prizes were
yet within their grasp.

the day thcro. Ho started to walk
homo late la the evening , Ho had been
paid off the evening before and while nt his
father's rcsldenco ho had $40 in money
which ho displayed to his parents. At 10:90 : .
last night Motorman Klston , on the South I
Fourteenth street car line saw n man lying
on the track ahead of him while ho was run
ning his car nt full speed , Kovcrslni ; his
lover nnd putting on the brakes ho made an
effort to stop thoar , but ho was too la to.
The wheels passed over the man's body ,
crushing his head to n pulp , mangling his
right arm nnd crushing his loft side. The
car was then stopped and the people on
board assisted the niotorman to remove the
body. The man never breathed after ho had
been picked from under the whools.
Some ono walked to the' state penitentiary
about 200 yards distant and telephoned the
uollco. Tlio patrol wagon was sent out and
the remains of the unfortunate man brought
to u local undertaking establishment. An
examination rovenlud the fact that the mnn
had a terrible gash on the top of the head
that appeared to have , been made by some
sharp instrument. In' hi ; pockets were
found n brt\8s badge giving his name and
residence. In his fee pockctof his trousers ,
safely pinned In , was $15. The rest of the
money he was known to have carried all day
Sunday was not to DO found. These fuels
have led many lo believe that the young man
was niui'ilersd by tramps.
The sccno of the fntnllty was on a lonely
part of thu road , with high vpoils growing
in the streets on both sides of the truck. It
was Just the spot a gang of cut throats would
naturally select to waylay nu intended vic
tim , nnd if O'Connor resisted nnd made a
light ho may have boon killed in the struggle
and his body placed on the tr.ick in order to
cover the evidences of the crime. The body
lay at the foot of a steep grade where it
would bo dllllcult to stop u heavily loaded
These who do not Incline to the theory of
murder think that O'Connor ' was drunk and
lay down on the track to sleep. This theory
is hardly tenable for the reason that he was
not u drinking man and' hud been at homo
with his parents all. day. Then , too , the
motor car hnu passed , the spot loss than six
minutes before on its Way but , ana if O'Con
nor had wandered tlmt'way ho would hardly
have had time to sinkjinto profound slumber
before the car returned. Again , it is argued
that if ho had really Ihid' down on the track
his injuries received from the car were not
necessarily of a have caused in
stant death.
It Wns Purely Accidental.
The coroner's jury commenced its Inves
tigation at 7 o'clock thl3Jovcning. A largo
crowd of spectators being gathered by pop
ular interest in the case. Contrary to gen
eral expectation , however , the testimony of
the several witnesses brought out no sensa
tional features. Neither was any
evidence adduced to show that
O'Connor had mot with any foul play. The
mystery surrounding' th'o1 cuso was as deep
when the lust witness was dismissed us it
was this morning. It was simply established
that the deceased hud visited his parents
and remained until within fifteen minutes of
10 o'clock lust night , when ho started to
walk to the car ; that ho had not drank a
drop of liquor and that ho was not subject
to tits.
The most interesting statements were
made by Deputy Sheriff Lungdon , who has
worked all day on the case. Ho discovered
that O'Connor had crossed the track from
the west side to the east and again ap
preached U from the east. His tracks were
plainly discernible in the soft ground. The
footprints of another man were also found
leading across a plowed field from the west
side and the two series of footprints met
nt the point where O'Connor's boudy was
found. The pockets of the deceased hud
not been rilled , nnd no testimony was drawn
out to show that ho hud moro than $15 ,
found uinned up in his fob pocket. In the
absence of any positive evidence throwing
light upon the mysterious affair the Jury re
turned a verdict to the effect that O'Connor's
death was accidental.

The State Board of''l . ' uallzatlon hold its
tlrst session this forcrtwiftind meetings will
| bo hold every fuw VajW for the next two
weeks in order to p&Ymil county oflloials
from various parts of ' < | io state to appear
and make known their 'fcriovuhces. From
the manner in which tfhfs 'forenoon's session
started out the board la lilfcly to have u busy
time of it before thu assessments are finally
adjusted to the satisfaction of everybody
concerned. " * "
Ono of the first to uprMr before the board
thli morning was County Cleric Sackott of
Douglas county. Mr , SaoKott had no partic
ular complaint to make of the Douglas
county assessment , but ho wished the assist
ance of the board In unraveling some compli | .
cations in which the commissioners of the
bij ; county on the river had involved thorn-
selves. The Douglas county commissioners
had mudo a levy far a county insuno fund un
der n misapprehension of the law. Under
this levy the fund vlll amount to about $25-
000. Mr. SacKctt uskod the advice or the
board as to what was necessary to do in the
caso. The members of the board were of
thcioplnlon that they could do nothing , hut
suggested to him that the cammUalonora iOf
Douglas county could dlrcol the clerk not l to
extend thu levy on the tax list if it should
bo found lhat it was illegal.
The clerk and two commissioners from
Cuss county weio present nnd stated to there
board that they would have to lave u ro-
( tttctlon upon the real estate assessment of
that county. They claimed that their us <
segment wns twice ns high as It was In
Saumlrrs county.
Hcprcscntatlvo Van Duyn and two com
missioners of S.ilino county , asked the board
to make a horizontal reduction In their
county. Under the returns of tlionscs ors
their property Is valued at > , QUO,000. They
think that this amount should be reduced to
about $ . ) ,00.1OUO , In order to place them upon
an footing with the other counties in
the stale.
Commissioners Bollard nnd Waldron of
Adams county , met with the board nt Its aft
ernoon session , Their complaint was very
similar to the others. The assessors had
been n little too enthusiastic and had placed
the valuation of the county too high. Uopre-
sentatlx-e * of Gaio , Scott Bluffs nnd Clay
county , also notified the board that they
would appear this afternoon and ntaxo
, , known their complaints ag.ilnst the unjust
assessments of their property holdings as
compared with neighboring counties.
All of the counties of the state with the
exception of Blalno , Boyd , Ouster , Dundy
. and ThuMton have returned their assess
ment rolls to thu auditor of public accounts.
| Placing the reports of the counties nt the
snmo figures they returned last year , the entire -
tire assessed valuation of real nnd personal
property ! In the state this year is " "
A comparison of the returns o' the sovcral
counties of the state shows that the judgment
of the assessors has varied as widely as the
boundaries of the state. Some of the coun
ties have been nasossed nt 130 per cent of
their nctual valuation , while others have re
turned ns low as 7 per cent. The law which
makes It Incumbent upon assessors , to place
the actual valuation upon all property coming
.within their Jurisdiction seems to have been
moro honored In the breech than in the ob
Afttir the Ynnktun & Nor Tot it.
Secretary Dllworth of the Stnto Board of
Transportation reports that considerable
grading for the Ynnkton & Norfolk railroad
has been completed In Pierce county. The
grade of the proposed now road crosses the
Pacific Short Line at Osmond In Plcrco
county and extends for n considerable dls-
tanco south toward Norfolk. Mr. Dilworth
says that although the work of grading the
now line has been suspended , there nro
several things which indicate that dirt will
bo Hying again in Iho nuar future.
An interesting fact in connection with the
proposed road has recently developed that
will bo of cunsldorablo interest to the busi
ness interests of the city of Omaha. An of
ficial of the Missouri Pacific who recently
paid a visit to this city intimated that it was
the intention of his company to secure the
control of the proposed Norfolk line ns soon
as possible , and then extend the recently ac
quired Kansas City , \Vyandotto & North
western northward from Beatrice to Nor
folk , where a connection would bo made
with the now road and the two consolidated.
This move , ho sMd , would give the Missouri
Pacific a through line from Kansas City
northwest into South D.ikota , and bo of
great benefit to tlio business interests of the
metropolis at the mouth of the Kaw river.
The Yankton & Norfolk road shoull natur
ally run into Omaha , but the Kansas City
men already see nn opening into a rival's
territory , and with their customary nerve
are hastening to avail themselves of its pos
Xulir.islci Itonl ICltntu Mortgagm.
The recent articles In THE Br.c exposing
the unreliable nature of the mortgage in
debtedness records furnished the state
, Bureau of Industrial Statistics by registers
j of deeds and county clerks over tlio State
| seem to bo bearing fruit , for the Juno re
ports show a marked improvement. Out of
llfty-ono counties which have so fur filed
their reports with the deputy commissioner
of labor , twenty-six show that the acgregato
amount of the mortgages released exceeds
the aggregate amount of the mortgages
tiled. When the returns are in from every
county in the state it is confidently ex
pected that the excess of releases over the
filings will bo in marked contrast to the reports -
ports of former months. The bureau is
seeking to impress upon county officials tno
importance of having mortgage releases
placed upon the records , and the county
oIHcors are in turn calling the attention of
the mortgagees to tlio matter. A prouor un
derstanding of tbo law will place Nebraska's
credit much higher in the financial scale
than it is at present , and thcro is good rea t.
son for the belief that another year will
show u marked difference in the mortgaged
indebtedness reports sent in to the state
Gimlp nt the Stuto Homo.

Another Will Contoit.
Another chapter has been added to the
sensational romance connected with tlio
now famous Dola-Strnllon breach of prniuUo
suit. Tills case has been referred
lo so fre -
qucntly thai its history is known to every
person outsldp of the insane asylum In this
city. It is a case in which Florence Dele of
Hed Willow county sued Thomas Stratum of
this county for iO,000 for seduction and
breach of promise. At the ilral trial the
Jury awarded her 57,000 , damagoi hut Strat
um secured a irhuarlug and at the second
trial the fair plaintiff was made happy by a
verdict for ? | y,00 ( ) . The case went to the
supreme court where it is now buried out
I of sight in n dusty docket. In the mean
time the father of youngStratlondled uud lin

Cnptaln John L. Carion , the well known
Nebraska banker , who has for a year or
moro lived at the Hotel Lincoln In thlt city ,
has been eng.igoil In the banking business In
Nebraska long enough to ho able to noast
that ho has wn.ithorcit two of the greatest
financial storms that over swept over the
country. The first was the panic of 1S37 , the
second the famous crisis of 1S70 , and ho fools
perfectly confident that the state will pass
through the present panic In good shapo.
Ilo said to a BF.R representative last evening
that the pxperlenco of the first two panics
furnished him no light to sea through to the
end of the present crisis , In 1S. > 7 the panic
was precipitated by the natural outgrowth
of the abttso of the state banking system.
In 187H the cr.iih resulted from the heavy
failures on Wall street , together with Iho
collapse of an era of speculation unprece
dented In thu history of Iho country. In the
later year tlio failures succeeded the panic.
At the present time the conditions nro
exactly reversed. The panic is traveling
ahead of Iho failures and men nro going to
the wall through the sheer fright"of the
pcoulo who are perturbed over a situation
which they freely admit lhat they do not
understand ,

The managers of the Impeachment case
Hied with the clerk of the Lancaster county
district court this afternoon their answer to
the application of Judge Doano of Onniha
for an alternative writ of mandamus to com
pel them to pay him the sum of foOO. In
their answer they al'cgo that they are not
indebted to tbo Judge In the amount of fT > 00
or any ether amount ; thai Iho impeachment
proceedings nro still pending , and that
the services for which ho claims the addi
tional compensation have not been fully
rendered. They further nllotro that they
have no power to audit and ollow claims and
issue vouchers thereon , but thai Iho auditor
of publio accounts is the only man who can
perform that duty ; thai tbo claim has never
been prcsenled lo the auditor and that con-
ioqucntly il has never been rejected by that
They also point nut tho.fact that the Judge
has a sutllclent remedy at law if the auditor
refuses to issue a warrant for any amount ho
may see lit to claim. They therefore ask
thai Iho writ uo denied.

Joseph Humble , son of W. S. Uuniblo of
this city , died today from injuries received
about two weeks ago. Ho was 10 years of
ago and was employed at the Cooper & Cole
steam radiator factory. About two weeks
airo he was sent to burn a lot of waste , sat-
united with oil , tn Iho furnace under Iho
boilers. While engaged in Ibis work n
heevy blaze suddenly puffed out from the
furnace door , completely enveloping his
body in llames. Ho was badly burned , but
for n time it was believed that his life would
bo saved. Ho lingered for two weeks , suf
fering untol'i agony , ami do.ilh came to his
relief today. His father lives at 113J South
Second street nnd is employed in the Lin

The Union Pacific railway came into the
districl court this morning with the state
ment thai it would not pay the rstato of A.
U Caldwell the sum of $ . ' > , OW ) without a bit-
lor light. Several months ago a Union Pa-
clllc engine ran into an electric motor In this
city nnd killed Caldwell , who was employed
as niotorman. His administrator sved the
railroad company for damages in the amount
of- > ,000. In its answer the Union Pacific
alleges that the Lincoln Street Hallway
company never secured the right of way
across the tracks and therefore , Caldwell
was a trespasser and his death duo to his
own negligence.
Divorce Court Record.
The records of the districl court In this

two moro petitions for divorce. Tho-llrst
was filed by John F. Hawkins , who seeks a
separation from his wit'o Lydia on the
grounds of infidelity. They were married at
Memphis , Tenii. , as long ago as 1S77 , but ro-
contly Mrs. Hawkins has become quite friv-

whom are referred to In the document.
The other case was filed by Elmer E.
