LINCOLN , May 1. ( Special to The Bec.- )
More than 100 students of the State unlvet
ally have petitioned Chancellor Canfleld t
institute an Investigation Into the charge
against Adam McMullen , the student whj
recently won the privilege of rcpresentlni
Nebraska In the Interstate oratorical contest
The scandal wan at first brought to the stir
face two weeks ago , when a student namci
Talmadgo published an affidavit In which h
Btatcil that ho had surreptitiously obtain *
the markings on McMullen's oration am
given them to the latter. McMullen did no
deny the charge and claimed that he only dli
what any other student would have don
under similar circumstances. , necentl ;
Walt Mason of Bcatrlco published a can
claiming that McMullen had engaged hi
services to write an oration but had after
ward backed out. The Investigation wll
probably be held. The matter has created i
great sensation at the university and student
are taking sides one way or the other. f
prominent attorney of this city who rppre
Bents McMullen's Interests stated to The Bei
representative this afternoon that his frlcm
will come out In flying colors. Ho Rtatci
that McMnllcn was first solicited to write at
oration for Talmadge. He declined on thi
ground that he had not the time. Then a
the request of Talmadge McMullen went t <
Walt Mason and asked him to write thi
oration for a friend. Mason agreed to do s <
for $10. Afterward McMullen felt that hi
was acting dishonestly and went to Masoi
and told him that ho would wash his hand !
of the entire matter. Mason then demandec
pay for the oration he had not written. Me
Mullen agreed to lay the matter before till
frlond ( Talmadge ) , but the latter told Me
Mullen to tell Mason to go to h I. McMul.
Ion told him. McMullen's friends claim thai
Mason has acted dishonestly In not giving
the entire case to the public. Instead ol
merely creating the Impression that McMul
len was the only party at fault. In the
meantime Student Talmadge has withdrawn
from the university for an Indefinite length
of time.
W. L. Hall , the traveling man who claimed
to have been robbed of $684 In an Omaha
bath house , did not succeed In convincing
Attorney Adams of the truth of his story.
Hall and Adams met at the Mllliml hotel In
Omaha as per appointment , and together
the two men repaired to the bathing em
porium where the alleged robbery took place.
Hall had no difficulty In proving to Adams
that he had visited the bath house , but his
proof ended there. The proprietor stated
that Hall came to the establishment on the
night claimed , and after taking a bath re
mained all night. Ho made no complaint of
having been robbed , but on the second night
iftcr ho did claim that ho had
lost $50. llo never claimed to
have lost more than that amount.
rtio proprietor was very positive that Hall
had not lost a cent. Attorney Adams also
discovered that In splto of the fact that
HSU claimed to have lost every cent In his
possession he accompanied a friend to the
Paxton hotel and remained all night , paying
the bill for both In the morning. Hall's
examination will continue tomorrow.

Cnpturcil In it Church.
COZAD , Neb. . May 1. ( Special to The
Deo. ) Yesterday afternoon two men , sup
posed to have been connected with the at
tempted murder of George P. Nelson , were
reported In a church near the scene of the
crime. A farmer saw them enter the build
ing , giivo the alarm and six armed men ,
neighbors of Mr. Nelson , quickly captured
them. They claimed to have Just come
from North Platte. But on being searched
a revolver was discovered In their posiesslon
that had been taken from Nelson's house a
couple of days before the attempt at murder.
An Investigation made the day following the
attack brought to light the fact that some
body had been occupying this church for
several days , and the weapons with which
Mr. Nelson was attacked were made from
the * arms of a largo chair In the church.
Excitement Is running high.
The attending physician predicts the re
covery of Mr. Nelson , although he is still In
a dazed condition , seemingly suffering from
some Injury to the brain. The young man
who did the shooting , wounding at least
two of tl.o four assailants , is not 1C years
old , and by his pluck doubtless saved Nel
son's llfo. _ _

Congressman Melklejohn , In discussing the
Coxey movement , said : "The right to

ment Is sacredly guaranteed to every Ameri
can citizen by the constitution of the land ,
but I believe that If those who are march
ing toward the capital are the unemployed
worklngmen of the land , that If It bo a crusade -
sade of labor seeking work. It Is unwise ,
unnecessary and will bo unavailing
In securing the relief sought employment.
The avenues of the wageworkers have been
closed by the threatened destruction of a
policy which has protected the handiwork
ot our breadwinners from the products of
foreign labor. The need of the hour Is not
so much an Increase of the currency to secure
the employment of labor , but the operation
of capital already Invested , which has become
unproductive through uncertainty and the
attempt to supplant business experience with
theories of tariff doctors. The patient
would become convalescent under a change
of physician. The employment of labor ,
the revival of Industries , the withdrawal ot
the currency from the congested centers for
circulation and a return to Individual and
national prosperity can bo accomplished
through the exercise of that franchise
granted to every American citizen the bal
lot. Every vote for the protection of Amer
ican Industries Is a ballot for the enthrone
ment of American labor and a berth for an
American citizen. "

WASHINGTON , May 1. Never before in
Its history , It would be safe to say , has the
senate lost Its members In such rapid suc
cession. Five weeks ago the obsequies of
Senator Colqultt of Georgia were held In

lamented Senator Vance of South Carolina
was burled in the mountain side of his be
loved state , and today , for the third time In
five weeks , another senator lies dead the
desk of Senator Stockbridge of Michigan Is
draped in black. The blind chaplain re
ferred to Senator Stockbrldge's death with
his usual tender pathos. Mr. McMillan of
Michigan announced the death of his col
league in a feeling and Impressive manner
and offered the usual resolutions , declaring
that the senate had heard with regret of
the death of Senator
Stockbridge ; that a
committee of seven senators should be ap
pointed by the vlco president , to act with
the committee from the house of representa
tives , to attend the funeral at Kalamazoo ,
Mich. , and instructing the secretary to com
municate these resolutions to the house and
that the senate should immediately adjourn

WASHINGTON , May ! ; A ser'ous struggle
will , It Is said , take place In the Illinois
democratic convention wlin ( It meets at
Springfield June 27 between the silver and
anti-silver men. An effort Is to be made
by the friends of President Cleveland to se
cure an endorsement of his financial policy
and on that Issue the party may be squarely
divided. The discussion among the Illinois
democrats In Washington on this subject
has already been very earnest , and gives
an Intimation of how Intense the flglit will
bo when the final test comes. Senator
Palmer , Comptroller of the Currency Eckels
and First Assistant Postmaster General
Jones will , It Is said. Insist on asking for
the unqualified endorsement of Mr. Clove-
land's financial policy. They will carry from
Washington a ready-made money plank to
be Inserted In the state platform and will
bo met with the response of the silver men ,
of whom Flthlan Lane , Williams and Mc
Donald are the leaders. Mr. Flthlan , In a
speech accepting the congressional nomina
tion a few days ago at Oreenup , repudiated
President Cleveland's views on the money
question , and Mr. Lane , another southern
Illinois member , has asserted that the presi
dent ought to be Impeached for his course.
Congressman Forman. who represents
Colonel Morrison's old district , Is likely to
break with his southern Illinois friends when
the question comes up. He voted for uncon-
dltlona repeal when the Sherman bill came
up , and Is known as an administration man.
The president looks to the Chicago demo
crats to come to his rescue In this fight and
prevent the Illinois democracy from being
committed to free silver. A large majority

Scheme of ITincrnptilom I'lro Hugs to Make
I'ortunes from Insurance.
NEW YORK , May 1. What is alleged to
bo a clever gang of Incendiaries has been
captured and Its members are now locked up
In police headquarters. The prisoners are :
Patrick Mullens , laborer ; Peter Donnelly ,
laborer ; John Shorkey , laborer ; Timothy Raf-
ferty , contractor , and Bernard Klernan ,
The scheme which the men are alleged to
have worked was to burn down stables filled
with poor , worthless broken down animals ,
having had them all previously insured when
filled with sound , good horses , which they
would borrow. They were not content to
simply destroy the stables and their horses
by setting them afire , but to make their de
struction more complete scattered giant pow
der about plentifully , so that not a vestige
would remain to convict them.
For more than two years this gang Is al
leged to have carried on these operations ,
and in that time they have burned down sta
bles on which they have collected insurance
to the amount of thousands of dollars. They
had , It Is charged , just prepared another sta
ble for destruction , when one ot their num
ber was caught at work.

WASHINGTON , May 1. Today's session ol
the houss committee on Pacific railroads
was giving to hearing statements on belialt
of the reorganization committee of the Union
Pacific In connection with the payment ol
the debt of the railroad to the United States.
The following gentlemen were present : A.
A. H. Bolssevaln of Holland , C. II. Coster
of New York , Colonel H. L. Hlggtnsoit ol
Boston , Louis Fitzgerald of New York , S ,
Carr of Boston , members of the reorganiza
tion committee , K. L. Stetson , J. W. Simp
son and Victor Morowotz , counsel of the re
organization committee ; 0. W. Mink , E. E.
Anderson , F. Coudcrt and Mr. Doano , re
ceivers , and S. II. II. Clark , president of the
Mr. Bolssevaln of Holland .representing
the holders of the Union Pacific securities
In that country , first addressed the commit
tee. The Interests bo represented believed
that prompt action by congress was neces
sary and Imperative so that the reorganiza
tion would not have to wait too long before
beginning Its work. Ho could not endorse
the proposition In the attorney general's bill
concerning the Hen proposed be given to the
government and said that he thought the
branches should be left out of such lien. Mr.
Bolssevnln said ho represented between
$30,000,000 and $40,000,000 of the company's
Mr. Morowetz , one of the counsel for the
reorganization committee , said the counsel
for the committee were not entirely satisfied
with all the provisions of the bill submitted
by the attorney general. One of those provi
sions was one making the court of appeals
of the District of Columbia , the tribunal
fur the settlement of litigation arising as a
possible result of the proposed legislation.
Morowetz submitted the form of a bill which
had been prepared by the reorganization
committee and which he said was Identical
with the attorney general's bill with the
exception of section 8 , which provides In
detail for the manner In which foreclosure
proceedings shall be taken In case of default
In respect to any obligation or condition for
which any Hen now exists In favor of the
United States upon any property of the com
Following Mr. Morowetz , the committee
heard statements from a number of the
members of the reorganization committee
and counsel , during which the history of the
steps taken to bring about the reorganization
was gone over. There seemed to exist In
their minds the belief that the extending
of the government Hen over the entire sys
tem of the Union Pacific , as proposed , would
prove a serious obstacle to the carrying
out of the plan of reorganization. The com-
mltteo adjourned until tomorrow , when coun
sel for the Central Pacific will appear.
Talk of Closure on the Turin I1I11 llclnc
WASHINGTON , May 1. That the rank
and file of the democratic party In the sen
ate Is becoming Impatient at the delay In
the consideration of the tariff bill was
shown yesterday by the circulation of a
declaration In favor of closure of debate.
The paper was prepared by Senator George
and was quietly circulated during the after-
noon.bolng handed only to the most influential
senators. It was not signed by all to whom
is was presented , some of the senators ex
pressing the opinion that It was too early
to attempt a closure and others declining
on principle. The paper recites that It has
become apparent that tlje republican op
ponents of the tariff are determined to re
sort to filibustering to prevent the proper
consideration and passage of the bill , and
commits the signers to a simple declaration
In favor of closure. It makes no specifica
tion as to how the change shall be brought
about , whether through the presiding officer
or the committee on rules , leaving that
point , as well as that as to whether It shall
be a modified or an absolute closure , to be
decided later.
It does not appear that the call will be
pressed for the time being , but it Is to bo
handed around quietly as opportunity pre
sents , so as to have the democratic side pre
pared for the change If undertaken and also
to have senators committed to It as far as
Senator Harris said that he Is not yet
prepared to announeo any change of hours
for the dally sessions , but that he might
have an announcement In that direction to
make before many days.
