LINCOLN , Hay 2 ? . ( Special Telegram. )
Tbo stock commlislon hnuiw > of C. W. Cock-
rell in the Capital hotel closed Its doors this
morning , nnd a number of Lincoln specula
tors are mourning the loss of their margin * .
These are said to amount to $7,000 or $3,000
In the aggregate. E. M. Vr'estervelt Is In
possession , under a chattel mortgage , which
Is said to he ( or onlr $500.
Today Thomas Halley , one of Cockrcll's
customers , began suit In attachment In dis
trict court against him for $2,387.50 , alleg
ing that defendant had left the county and
concealed hlmtclf to avoid scrvlc * of sum
mons , and that he had removed his property
to defraud his creditors. Process was ac
cordingly Issued carnlsheclng the American
National Exchange bank , where Coclcrcll had
a small deposit , and another Issued for Wcs-
tervelt , who holds the chattel mortgage , but
the latter was not found In the city. An
attachment was also Issued for Cockrell'a
race stock out at the fair grounds. Before It
was served It was learned that County Com-
mlssoncr Mller had a chatt-1 mortgage on
the stock. Cockrell says his Omaha house did
little business during last Saturday's fluctua
tions , and he hits settled his obligations dollar
lar for dollar. Ilolh houses are closed with
a good prospect of remaining so , although he
thinks he may In tlmo reopen. He says he
has claims against customers aggregating
something like $17,000 , from which he expects
to realize very little , as It Is almost tmpos-
Bible to collect a debt on an option deal.
Cockrell has gouo through several financial
crises and come out on top. Three years ago
he had a balance of $30.000 to his credit In
Lincoln banks. That Is all gone.
Judge Hall this morning gave Mrs. Mary
D. Manning a divorce from her husband , Dr.
Charles 1) . Manning , on the ground of de-
Bortlon and nonsupport.
In the case of Patrick & Co. . wholesale
tobacco , against Klein and Jack , the
jilalntlff secured n verdict for $1,081 In the
district court this morning. Patrick & Co.
sued Klein on the bond of Jack , given to
square an alleged shortage on the part of
Klein , who was a traveling salesman for the
firm.There Is being raised n fund for the erec
tion of a building on the State university
grounds as a homestead for the various tocle-
tles now occupying the main building. In
cluded In the societies are the Young Men's
Christian association and Young Women' *
Christian association , who will there make
their future home. Other societies ore the
Dollan , Union and I'aladlan. Young ladles
representing these organizations have started
a subscription.
This morning Judge Holmes heard argu
ments on the motion to quash the summon *
served upon the bondsmen of the defaultliifi
cx-oll Inspector , Frank Hilton. The bonds
men contended that they wore residents ol
Washington county , where service was im
properly had upon them , and that the cause ol
action did not arise In Lancaster county ami
was not rightly brought In this county ,
Judge Holmes reserved hU decision.
The troubles In the Lincoln L'ght Infantrj
liavo finally landed that military combination
In court. Members who oppose going Intt

the appointment or a receiver and an In
junction restraining the others from assert
ing title to company property. Plaintiff )

Memories Awakened by the Twenty-Seventh
Annivortaiy of Decoration Day ,
ot ( he Variant Crtnrtrrlcs In
Chnree ot the National ( loTrrninent
Ntimlieri ot Dead Allioec Urstlae
I'luco the Government Ounnls.
Tomorrow li the twenty-seventh anniver
sary ot the official designation ot Memorial
or Decoration day. It was General John A.
Logan , then commander In chief ot thi
Grand Army , who Issued the first order dedi
cating May 30 , 18CS. as a day to be observed
"by strewing flowers or otherwise decorating
the graves of comrades who died In defens :
of their country during the late rebellion , and
whose bodies now lie In almost every city ,
village ] hamlet and churchyard In the land.
In this observance no form of csremony Is
prescribed , hut posts and comrades will , In
their own way , arrange such fitting services
and testimonials ot respect as circumstances
will permit. Let us , then , at the time ap
pointed , " wrote General Logan , "gather around
their sacred remains and garland the pas
sionless mounds above them with the
choicest flowers of springtime ; let us raise
above them the dear old flag they saved from
dishonor ; let us In this solemn presence
renew our pledges to aid and assist those
whom they left among us , a sacred charge
upon a nation's gratitude the soldiers' and
sailors' widow and orphan. "
The order met with a cordial response In
the hearts of tbo people and the observance
even at that period was qulto general. The
occasion was a memorable one , particularly
so at Arlington , where the ceremonies were
most Imposing. General Logan's order was
read to the hushed and waiting crowds ,
prayer was offered by Dr. Byron Sunderland
and the oration was delivered by Hon.
James A. GnrfielJk afterward president ol
the United States , himself dying a martyr' :
death. Ho quoted Mrs. Julia Ward Howe's
"Battle Hymn of the Republic" with a most
reverential fooling. Some of bin sentence !
were Inspired with dramatic force. He- said
"As the traveler descends the Appenlnes
e sees the dome of St. Peter's rising above
lie- desolate Cnmpagna and the dead city
> ng before the seven hills and ruined pal-
ces appear to bis view. The fame of tht
ead fisherman has outlived the glory of the
iternal City. A noble llfo crowned will
eroio death rises above and outlives the
ride and pomp and glory of the mlghtlesi
mplro of the earth. I love to believe thai
o heroic sacrificeis ever lost ; that tlu
laracters of men are molded and Inspires
iy what their fathers have done ; that treas
ired up In American souls are all the un
: onsclous Influences of the great deeds o
no Anglo-Saxon race , from Aglncourt t (
unker Hill. With such Inspiration falluri
as impossible. "
The beautiful custom has become nation
fide with the passing years and ranks will
ndependence day In the affections of th
icople. Nor is it confined to the soldier deai
.lone. . The generation which has come Inti
.ction slnco the closing of the war vies -will
he participants In the terrible struggle Ii
lonorlng the memories of the men whos
.erolc . devotion preserved the heritage the :
njoy. There are few families without ni
.mpty chair at the hearthstone , a hallowei
nount on the hillside. The cares and strug
les of life , mayhap , prevent the living fron
living proper attention to the graves of thos
the have gone before. The coming of Me
norlal day arouses the dormant memories o
ho loved and lost , and turn footsteps ceme
cry-ward , recruiting the depleted ranks c
Jio soldiers and combining patriotic sentl
; nent with the ties of family.
Much has been done by the national gov
jrnment to honor the memory of the me
who fought for Its preservation and to fos
.or the patriotic spirit that animated then
Eighty-three national cemeteries , contain
ng 330,700 honored dead , have been -estat
.Ished by the government. Every Indlvldu :
grave is marked by a stone tablet of granlt
jr marble. The private cemeteries , wher
.hrongs will assemble on Thursday , ma
.eem . fair and delectable , but still fairer tha
Jicy are the "national cemeteries. Treasur
has been spent without stint to make thei
i\hat they should bo nnd are the simples
and yet grandest nnd lovlest God's-acres 1
.ho world , lavishly adorned by nature , pel
ectod by art , and guarded over by the starr
Hag. There the sun shines softest , the gras
grows greenest , the flowers bloom brlghtes
the trees spread most luxuriantly. N
weeds or brambles or thistles are suffere
o enter there. The very atmosphere aroun
them is sacred , and the sympathetic visile
may fancy a halo hovering over them ; fe
n them rest exclusively the heroes wt
died in the cause of freedom.
On the battlefields where the union armli
won the Interments were so conscientious !
made that over 90 per cent of the dead wei
afterward identified. Where time permlttt
the confederate dead were also religious !
burled and their graves marked as careful !
as those of their federal antagonists. On tl
fields where the union armies were defeate
nnd driven off the enemy cared little for tl
fallen except to get them out of the way ar
under ground with the least expenditure i
tlmo and trouble. In most of the southei
prisons the union dead were burled and the
; raves marked I y their living comrales , ofte
under the most adverse and trying clrcun
stances. The result of that admirable syste
has been that the mortuary record of tl
union armies In the war of the rcbcllk
excels In completeness by long odds v
similar records ever before known.
By the end of the year 1SCS seventy-two
theto national cemeteries had been foundi
at great expewe , and In them , In conne
tlon with 820 local cemeteries In varloi
places , the government assumed charge
310,233 graves. Of these the names of 175,7
had been preserved and were indicated on t !
headstones. Concerning the remaining 14 (
4G9 , It Is alone certain that they died fightii
In the union armies , and the only Inscrlptli
that could bo placed over them was "U
known United States Soldiers. " Of the who
number then gathered Into these cemeterl
less than one-fifth reposed In their origin
graves , and these lay on battlefields who
union victory Insured their careful Inte
ment. and which afterward happened
become the sites of tl.e cemeteries. Mo
than four-fifths were removed from the TO
trenches of the battlefields at some dl
tance , or from their roadside graves ,
from hospital burial plats. Since 1SG3 till
teen additional national cemeteries lia
been established , with 14,459 more gravi
making to date eighty-three In all , with .
aggregate sleeping population , by nctti
count , of 330,002. Five of these contain t
remains of soldiers other than those engag
In the war for the union one being local
near the City of Mexico , and four olhe
being used solely as attachments to front !
military posts In the wesl. One of these
ot exceptionally sad Interest thai on t
Custer battlefield In Montana , where in
lie the bones of 918 regulars , over 300
whom were massacred In 17G by Sltli
Bull and his rampant Sioux , In recent yea
by provision of law , the interment of a
honorably discharged union soldier may
secured In a national cemetery upon apr
cation lo Iho proper authorities. Bui su
Interments nowadays are not numerous , a
comparatively few of the national cemeter
receive additional Interments al this da
On the other hand , the friends of the c
ceased are constantly having bodies reinov
from the national cemeteries to private bi
lal places , so that the total number
graves under the care of the governme
changes but little from year to year.
The moat beautiful ot all the natloi
cemeteries and the greatest as regards t
number ot Identified dead Is thai on Arllngt
Heights , near Washington. U contains 10 , !

No grounds are flrjtrjor better kept than
the sovenlecn acres of Gettysburg cemetery.
There are l.OSO labeled graves and 1,612
nameless , yet each a hears a marble head
stone at the end. , The martyred Lincoln
participated In the ceremonies attending the
formal consecration of'Vho ' place on Novem
ber 19. 1863. and thWe his Immortal words ,
uttered on that supremp occasion , arc fitly
cut on Ihe pedestal of the government monument
ment In Imperishable granite :
"L t us hero highly resohc that these
dead shall not have died In vain ; that the
nation shall , under God , have n now birth
of freedom , and that the government of the
people , by the people and for the people
shall not perish from the earth. "
Other splendid and noble monumenta
abound , but none are moro highly admired.
But the biggest national cemetery In point
of population Is the Vlcksburg , where 16,633
heroes sleep , gathered from the scattered
graves about the union lines at Vlcksburg
and from neighboring fields and hospitals.
Of these the known number Is 3,913 nnd the
unknown 12.720. The Nashville cemetery
comes close to It In number of dead , having
16,546 sleepers , taken from hospitals nnd
outlying battlefields , with a much smaller
proportion of unknown.
But Frederlcksburg cemetery , which ranks
nexl lo Nashville in number of deaJ , Is
greatest and moel melancholy of all In the
number of Its unknown. Of the total 15,274
soldiers burled here , 12,786 an enormous
proportion arc nameless. The cemetery oc
cupies Marye's Heights , the celebrate ! In
trenched position held by Lee when Burn-
side's ttoops chaiged and recharged against

who were nol aware of whal was really gi
ing on.
A prescription was written by Dr. E. V
Leo nnd placed In a sealed envelope , whlc
was given to the clerk at the Merchani
hotel. After a committee of local clttzei
had secreted the envelope in a drug stor
Mr. Johnstone was to find the envelope nr
fill the prescription , his eyes being bliui
folded during the time. This feat was pe
formed to the letter. A committee , coi
sisttng of Arthur II. Brlggs , E. E. Howel
Leo Spratlln and a Bee reporter , took tl
envelope to the drug store at Fifteenth ar
Harney streets , where It was secreted undi
a pile ol sponges in the show case ,
few minutes after Mr. Johnstono was take
to his room at the Merchants hotel , wliei
he was blindfolded. Ho then look M
Howell's hand and led him to the carrlai
which was In waiting. As soon as the parl
had embarked , the mind reader took the roll
and lashed the horses Into a gallop. H
eyes and face werbjcoverod by nt least
dozen thicknesses ot cloth , but ho drove i
, " though ho were going to a fire. Up SI :

eyes open. Scores of people rushed out <

At last Johnstone drew up at the dr
store and soon succeeded lu locating the e
velope. Then he . oxcbangod his guide f
the druggist , and started after the prescrl
tlon. One after another he took down t
bottles and In halt an hour from the tit
of the start , tbo prescription was filled , coi

that every effort was made to throw t

that she mcst earnestly desired the position ,
and I Inferred from what hhe said that one
