the Khadoivy claim of authority over the
people whlrli he hns kept up over since
the days of Itlchcllcii there might not have

when ho nought to subdue the natives nm

recognized as a Mate- Institution and receives
biennial appropriation ! ) from the legislature
It has been claimed that Its olllclals made no
reports to any one , but conducted Its affairs
on the lines of a decidedly close corporation
An Investigation ot these charges , how over
Siliovvu them to be only partially true , oud la
thly particular the managers ot the homo ap
point its owu ofllccrs regardless of the KOV-
ernor or the Hoard of 1'ubllc Hulldliigs.
A number of jcars ago the homo waa
started as a purely local charltjble organiza
tion , with a buard of women managers. Stlb-
nequcntly the legislature made an appropria
tion for Its maintenance nnd the prccelent
thus established has since been followrd. The
legislature of 1S33 appropriated $3J,000 for
thu homo and the last wo 3lon gave It $ iO00.
At present Mrs. A. M. IJavls Is prcsdcnt
and Mrs P. M. Williams superintendent of

the patronage Involved , but the Hoard of

Governor llolcomb today Issued a procla
mation offering a reward of ? 200 for the ar
rest of Claus ncllefsen , the man who mur
dered joung Glcslng a few- miles north of
Schuyler on the evening of December 7.
Detlcfaen la described as a low German
26 jcara of age , live feet ten Inches tall ,
peaked face , with deep-set c > cs , and weigh
ing about 170 pounds. At the time of the
murder ho wore a cap , brown striped suit
and long overcoat , and was riding a 7-jear-
old bay It Is thought ho has gene
Into the vicinity of the Black Hills.
Henry liliiin of Omaha , who succeeds
Jule Schocnhett as shorthand writer In
the governor's olllco was at his post today
and appeared to find hmuelf exceedingly
busy. The latest rumor i In regard to tlio
Kearney Industrial School for Uojs Is that
J. J. Imhoff of this city Is to succeed J ,
II. M.Ulallcu as superintendent of that insti
tution. It appeals to be fully settled that
Sidney J. Kent will assume the position
of deputy commissioner of Industrial sta
tistics to hi ! made vacant by the retire
ment of John Powers. The future of the
latter Is not > ct decided upon , and the rumor
that ho Is to succeed Nets McDowell In
the olllco of secretory of state lacks con
firmation. It Is considered certain that
Prof. C D Grlllln , n son-ln-lavv of Land
Comm'saloner-clect ' Wolfe , will bo given
some position , less than superintendent. In
the Kearney school. Mr Imholf , who Is
mentioned for the ouperlntendency , la a
free silver democrat.
In regard to recent dlstr'butlon of pitron-
ugo by the Incoming administration , It Is
generally remarked that the appointments
are getting Up-heavy with a democratic ele
ment and some of the more prominent pop-
ulluts are beginning1 to demur. Some of
them arc bold enough to admit , however ,
that this la done for the solo purpose of
strengthening the bonds of fusion In the
state , which was found of such Imnicu&o ad-
vantaco at the late election.
Slnco the opinion of Attorney General
Churchill was made public there hns been
considerable Inquiry In regard to the present
status of certain county ofllcinlu who have
given guaranty bonds In this state. Lancau-
tor county's treasurer , Mr. Sullivan , gave a
guaranty bond at the tlmo ha assumed tlio
ofllce. So far Its legality has never been
questioned , but tlio lito opinion of Attorney
General Churchill would seem to cover his
ciso and that of other county olllclals , ao
well as that of State Treasurer-elect Mescrve
So far Governor llolcomb has not announced
his position In the matter , but tlicro are In
dications that Meservo has entirely aban
doned the Idea of attempting to glvo such a
hnnil. It Is rnnortcd tlmt the various state
luulit ) are falling Into line and that by the
tlmo ho cornea up to qualify his bond will
ba in acceptable chape.

of his wife. Several weeks ago he was ar

last night waa the refusal of his wife to
glvo him money to pay this flue.

Mine Nordlca has canceled all dates for

word received jesteiday by the management
of the Omaha Musical society. The reason
Tor this change In her plans seems to bo the

to furnish a sulllcleht financial guarantee to

furthermore , their Inability to make a suf

At the Doyd last evening was given the
Initial exhibition of Cdteon'a Vltsicope Ir
conjunction with a dramatic performance
by the nittner compan ) . The play was
"The Tire Patrol , " and both It and the
company are too well known to need ex

thing new and novel. Ordinary pictures
throw n on a screen1 have become too com

by the old of this apparatus some of the

One of tno most artlstlc'was ' the portraiture
