DUltntlon this afternoon ever the now parole
Jaw , -which ROCS Into effect August 1. The
Trardcn Informed the ttovcrnor that when
the now law goes Into effect there will bo In
the neighborhood ot 100 convicts entitled to
parole within the discretion of the governor.
These convicts have made records for Rood
conduct whllo in the penitentiary , are Indus
trious , and many of them masters of trades
Vrhlch would enable thorn to raako a living.
JMany of them have families dependent upon
them , nnd thcro nro good reasons for the bo *
\lot \ that they would make good citizens ,
Speaking of llio now law to THE DEE corRespondent -
Respondent this evening Governor Crounso
stated that whtlo ho looked upon It with a
great deal of favor ho should proceed very
lowly In putting It Into effect. Ho has boon
In corresiwndenco with the authorities In
Minnesota , Pennsylvania nnd Now York ,
Where similar lawn nro In force. In Minnesota
seta , however , said the governor , the law Is
not as broad as the now Nebraska law ,
While in tlio two latter state. ) mentioned the
law applied more especially to the reforma
tory rather than to the penal Institution.
Pntntly Injured lit iin Klevator.
Herman C. Bardwoll , the 15-year-old son
Of C. A. Bardwoll , living at 030 South Seven
teenth street , met with an accident this
evening which will probably cost him his
llfo. The boy was In Hurpolshoimor's de
partment store and had started the t-'ovator
for the second story. After start inp , ; no car
riage ho attempted to ullmb In , but In doing
o ho was caught between the elevator and
the walls of the shaft. Thuro was a scream
and crunching sound and when assistance
arrived the boy was extricated in an ap
parently lifeless condition.
, The patrol wagon was called and the limp
form of tlio boy taken homo. Physicians
were hurriedly called nnd everything possible
too" " to rolluvo his sufferings but the doctors
pave it as their opinion that ho would not
llvo through the night , The boy's ' head was
irlghuully crushed , ono oar torn off and his
nose broken. The lad's father claims that
- ho had been engaged to take the place of
\ the regular elevator boy at Horpolshoimor's '
Store. It was stated that ho had no connec
tion with tha storo.
Clovornor Furnnii Sect the Fair.
Secretary Furnns of the Nebraska State
Agricultural society has boon In Lincoln for
the past two days attending the regular
quarterly meeting of the board of managers.
In conversation with THE UF.U representa
tive ho Incidentally mentioned the fact that
he had Just 10turned from a visit to the
World's fair. In response to a , question the
secretary tallied quite freely about the state
, exhibit which has been so roundly abused in
> BO many different quarters.
T "Whilo the exhibit is not what it should
to , " said the secretary , "it is as a wbolo
creditable. Different than at Now Orleans ,
M Chicago our exhibit is scattered and not
Jv > collected form as it should bo. A portion
U found in the Woman's building , Agricul
tural , Horticultural , Dairy , Forestry and
btnor buildings , whllo a portion of it is
tolaced in the Nebraska building proper.
Much of the exhibit is really lost to view nnd
play not be scon at all except by a few , even
from our own state. This Is not the fault of
our stnto management , but of the general
exposition. In justice to nil states the direc
tory of the exposition should have provided
b building exclusively for the stales , whore
exhibits could have been massed In collec
tive form , especially as to products. Ol
course , llvo stock and machinery could not
bo so placed. Our state building is poorly
constructed for display and in this roupect is
Boxt to a fniluro.
"Whilo 1 was at the fair but few of the
Jt a to exhibits wore fully in place , ours with
ell others. Additions and changes wore
being made constantly and dally and Ne
braska will bo In much better shape a month
honcu than today. Taken as n whole at
present it may bo said that Nebraska's ex
hibit , in my estimation , excels more states
than excel it. In other words , it Is above
the average. Buffalo Bill's presence on Ne
braska day has not been correctly inter
preted. Ho was there with his" Wild West
by invitation nnd in fair parlance was a
good drawing card. The idea was to show
lay his Indians what Nebraska was when the
white moil took possession , our exhibits tc
show by comparison what civilization had
' - Heferrliig to the Sunday opening question ,
Which lias Anally been settled for all time
( to come , the secretary expressed his satis
faction at the outcome of the long and
heated controversy. Ho was on the grounds
two Sundays and found that the great ma
jority of the state buildings were closed anil
u great proportion of the exhibits in the
main buildings covered up. The majority
of the ucoplo did not want Sunday opening
pud the idea that the working people wanted
the fair open on that day provodito bo c
Arroitail for Forgery.

In view of the approaching mooting ol the
national executive committee of the Nicara
gua Canal commission nt Chicago on August
B nnd 3 , Mr. J. W. Love , the Nobrnskn mem
ber , was Interviewed on the prospects of the
ontorprlso. As consul at San Salvador nnd
as commissioner on the reciprocity and min

thoroughly posted himself on not only the
route of the canal but on Its prospects and

Mr. tovo declares that thoNlcaragua canal
Is the most feasible connection between the
oceans , passing as it aoes , over n healthful
and highly productive country , the summit
of which , not ever 110 feet in
altitude , Is crowned by that magnlllcont
body of water , Lake Nicaragua , by which
tha canal will bo flooded. To all tropical

this is n most important consideration , as It
saves them the expense of going Into dry

The question having boon raised as to
whether Lake Nicaragua will furnish nmplo

that the water passing out through the San

bo required to float a continuous
line of steamers from ocean to ocean
through the canals. Mr. Love describes
Lake Nicaragua as a remarkably beautiful

mot in Denver In' 18S7and who was intro
duced to him as Dr. Meyer ; Ho recognized
the face , albeit Meyer , while in Denver did
not wear the whiskers which now ndorn his
vlsace. " Dahlman says lloyor cnmo to Den
ver "from Chicago , was intimate with a
druggist clerk namodi Klotz , who had
boon In a drug store in Chicago , and com
pounded proscriptions while thcro. _
Meyer practiced or pretended to practice
medicine whllo in Denver , but evinced great
ignorance of medicine in several cases which
came to Dahlman's knowledge. Mayor
brought to Denver with him a very handsome
woman- , whom ho called his wife and n ser
vant girl. They lived in fairly good style ,
but ho did not appear to have much money.
A Chicago man told Dahlman thnt Meyer
had spent nearly or quite all the money ho
had received from the widow of n man they
poisoned tin defending himself when tried
on the charge. Klotz , the druggist , had
como from Chicago and was living with a virago
rage who claimed to bo his wlfo , but Klotz's
real wlfo lived in the cast. When Klotz died ,
his life Insurance , which was $1,000 , was col-
Icctod by the Denver woman.
Klotz , whllu in Denver , was the editor of a
paper printed iu German. Suddenly ho be
came sick. Ho had been in the best of health
nnd was a robust , strong man naturally , but
suddenly ho wus nttackod with troubles In
bis throat and ulcers in the rectum and got
so bad ho could scarcely walk. Ho was ad
vised by n physician to go to southern Cali
fornia and ho did so. Ho returned In a few
weeks apparently restored In health , but his
troubles came again and ho dlnd.
Meyer meanwhile seemed to bo settled In
Denver , but suddenly ho disappeared. Two
days after his disappearance thcro came out
in a Uonvor newspaper an account of his operations -
orations in Chicago. Before Klotz died
Meyer had arranged to go Into the drug busi
ness with him. Ho could thus put up his
own prescriptions without recording thorn.
Dahlman says Klotz was always hard up ,
and ho thinks Meyer secured a hold upon
him hy letting him have a llttlo money now
and than. In Klotz's death , It wns supposed
ho not only profited by his insurance , but
got a dangerous ally out of tha way.
