The llnmcR had complutcd the work of do-
Rtrurtlon before any help arrived. The
country around the mono : of the accident
Is sparsely fettled nnd the few fnrmcrn who
heard of the wreck and went to the Hceno
arrived too late to .bo of any assistance ex-
crpt to the survivors.
Dr. Hay , a Illocton physician , who at
tended Gardner , one of the Injured survivors ,
telegraphs tonight the statement made li >
Gardner as to the cause of the wreck.
Gardner says when ho felt the cars leave
the track he looked out and saw three savage
looking men rushing from a hiding place
down toward the water's edge , ami that
after the wreek they went through the
wreckage , robbing this dead and wounded ,
and then lied to the woods. They did their
work < mlckly. and offered no assistance
whatever In the way of rescuing the Im
prisoned and Injured passengers. This
story , however , has liot yet been corrobo
rated , but other fuels tend to show that It
was the work of train wrcrkcrs.
An examination of the engine- shows that
KiiKliipvr White had shut off steam ami re
versed before the engine went down , Indi
cating that he saw danger ahead as he np-
proaehed thu bridge anil tried to stop his
train. His charted bojy was found , with
his hand on the throttle. Tint survivors all
agree that the train left the track and
bumped along the ties , nnd then , with a
erash. plunged through the bridge , n.xpcrt
engineers say that there Is every Indication
that n rail was removed , which derailed the
train and caused It to pull down the bridge.
The cross ties show marks of the wheels.
To add to this. Is the faet that three men
tried to wreek a Southern railway train
near Henryellen. fifteen miles east of hero ,
live days ago , by removing a rail on n
trestle ninety feet high. The fast express
left the track , but the engineer managed
by superhuman efforts to stop It before It
toro down the trestle. This was regarded
cs n most remarkable escape. In this case
three men were seen running from the place
and a crowbar , with which the spikes had

OMAHA , Dee. 28. To the Editor of The
Dee : Just nt this tlmo some agitation of
the prison labor problem Is stewing In cor-
t.iln quarters. It Is claimed that Governor
llolcomb favors the abolition of Urn contract
ny tcm , nml It Is probable that porno members
of the legislature have a notion of auch a
system of prison regulation that all the con
victs will ho holy and only the guai-Js bo
vile. It appears to mo that this matter
hhouhl ho determined In the Interest of
throe concerned , and who have rights In the
premised the taxpayers , and thla Include )
all our people outside the criminal plaaaea
whether wagoworkcrn , financiers , manufac
turer or farmers. The lita no
rights which society Is bound to respect ,
nay , none which society nhould respect In
opposition to Ita own Interests , safety or con
venience , whether dealing with depravity
wo regard crime as a disease , an Insanity
or a vice. The strong arm of the law Hhould
protect the Inwabldlng citizen at whatever
cost to the criminal , and .this mewling men
tal dotage , miscalled sympathy , that looks
with pitying eye on the murderer taken
red-handed In hU crime , la both trying
and dangerous. Our prKsuna hold men dan
gerous to society , natures dwarfed by oln
Into the horrible monstrosity of crime. They
aie not refuged for unfortunates In life ;
they are bulwarks for the protection of the
thrifty , the pure , the gentle , the gooJ.
Men arc sent there for punishment , and the
regime Hhould do sufllclenily severs to make
n return of the prisoner when hlj term ex
pires , undesirable a thing to ho avoided ,
even nt the.cci.-it of remaining honest. Shorn
of the halo that too often surroundj him , the
criminal utamla confessed as ono who han
ruthlessly tvikcn ftom others their property ,
their virtue , or their life , who has volunta
rily put himself beyond the protection of the
laws , and ewcet charity has too many needy
gardens In which to plant IU beautiful llow-
ers without condemning It to the blistering
atmosphere of cuiulctcd vice.
What shall wo do with our convicts , not
In the Interest of the convicts , but of so
ciety ? H Is everywhere admitted , nt all
events by all people who may visit an In
sane asylum with safety , that the state
should hold Its prisoners nt the least cost
to the public. Taxpayers ore too heavily
burdened in the llrst costs of convicting
criminals. At the very end of this year of
grace. ISOfl , it took four able laywers. a
learned Judge and twelve good men and
true , not to mention court bailiffs , stenog
raphers , etc. , ten days to convict a man
who himself admitted that ho had brutally
murdered his roommate and then robbed
him , and who gave this precious assassin
a Christmas present of a life sentence In
the penitentiary , whither ho goes In the
hope that some soft-hearted governor In
the future will make him another Christmas
present of a pardon. Meanwhile the worms
are having n Christmas feasfon the body of
his victim , erstwhile his friend and bene
factor , whom his murderous hand
Hem to ( hlH ) account ,
\\lth all ( his ) Imperfections on ( his ) head.
And the taxpayers of Douglas county will
foot the bill to the tune of thousands of
dollars. Thcro Is no mistake about that.
Juries may disagree , astute attorneys may
quibble him out , the law's delay may release
him , governors may pardon him , and n
thousand and ono things may Intervene and
the criminal go unwhlpped of Justice , hut
thcro Is no escape for the taxpayer. Thrift
must pay the penalty of Its virtue , that
we may open every avenue of escape for
society's assassins. Hut now nnd then wo
do get him In the penitentiary , nnd then
what shall wo do with him ?
"Uefonn him , " shrieks the who
often lacks but courage nnd opportunity to
become a criminal himself , and so a "fellow
feeling makes him wondrous kind. " "Pun
ish him. " sajs common sense and If there I *
anything In him worth reformlnc It will

that he be made self-sustaining. If practica

tc-11 oiitsldu goes without saying. It Is but
fair that the burden of his keep. If burden
It must be , should bo equally distributed
amons all our citizens. He should not bo
permitted to do In confinement what he did
when at large , prey upon society. Hut lie
muht bo engaged In some line of proHta'jlo
labor , and there Is no legitimate senKnuiit
In the matter. Which Is most prorttable to
the atate , the contract system or direct em
ployment ? This belne nnswered. the qu--s-
tlon should bo settled. It Is urged In name
iiunrtera that our convicts could bo profitably
employed In the manufacture of clothlriz.
shoes , etc. . for our state InstlluWoim nnd still
not eomo Into competition with honest labor.
I trust the people outslrto our state will no !
conclude from this argument of the screcchsrs
that Nebraska's feeble mlmled. in - > m <

permitted to go shoeless nor compelled to

tha case there would be meat In the ar u-
ment , and the plan be both sensible and
uimano. Where do the shoes , clothing.
jcddlng , etc. , and the houses our unfor-
: unatca live In come from ? With a bound-
les belief In the wonderful productiveness
of the soil of our beautiful state1 1 am still
.mwllllng to believe that houses grow up
rom our prairies nuc/lded. Nor la It prob-

attendants may go 10 the rain barrel nnd

alucuro of evldenco to the contrary Iin -

are made by busy human hands. Where.

convicts on state work ? Tue result would

stato. All these things tned : by the com-
nonwealth in caring for its unfortunates ,

iloymont to labor nnd If we make thorn by
) rlson labor wo deprive the worklngmcn
and women who now manufacture them of
ust that much employment.Vu somewhat
hango the conditions , but not the result.
"Learn the convict a trade , that when ho
comes out lie may have a chanco. " I Hie
ho proposition still less , but granting Its
itlllty how arc you going to do It. unlcsu you
employ him ? It Is urged that by return-
tig to primitive methods this might be
one In such a way that his product would
be so small that It would have little or no
( feet on outride labor. In the llrat place
such n plan would bo unprofitable to the
state , ami Is quite enough to ilci'cat
It. Hut from the view of "giving
him a chance , " lin- much chance -Amild
he have ? The stutc pays annually a large

plill a Washington hand prcsi. It would
have the effect of depriving honest printers
ontbliliof that much employment they now
receive. ; but m.vcr mind , we will give
society's enemies a chanco. At the end of
his term the convict KOCH Into the world

There are hundreds of llrst r.iFn ! prlntem.

morality , Into the union or risking chance *
of his scabbing him out of his job , and
the more thoroughly the convict has learned

can work cheaper than an man , for
what he don't earn by day he steals by

the transaction as well as the state nt
Wo hove had some trifling experience
Nebraska In the matter of purchasing peni
tentiary tools nnd the result was not happy ,
though less disastrous than might have been
expected. We purchased some asthmatic en
gines , a few well worn flies nnd sundry other
tools and things nt a cost of about $3r.MO , II
my memory serves me. It Is reasonably cer
tain the seller received their value. 01
course we Inspected thorn. If n btulnesa
man or a farmer should buy a pluco of ma
chinery he would consult aome ore familiar
with thai machine- give him Information
about It. Hut In hU superior wisdom the
governor appointed toInspect steam en-
rlnes and mcchatilrs' tools a farmer , and ,
trailing the same line of policy , If we
turned our prison Into an Immense farm
would doubtless appoint n mechanic to su
perintend the croi growing. This Is not
so much the fault of the governor as of
the system. The Idea that n public olllclal ,
hrcauso he 'Is ' a nuccessful politician , may
therefore successfully manage a business
about which he Icnuurf nothing , or a series of
diversified businesses , la th ? false founda
tion on which the whole fabric of the plan
of dlrc-et employment rests. If the peonlo
could bo absolutely sure that every olllclal
to be connected with the prison In future
would bo absolutely Incorruptible , still the
plan has 'In It. the Inherent weakness of Im
practicability. Prom tha constant changes
in administration , even If wo did find one
that know It all , how would wo bo able to
know of the future ? In any event , what
Ii Iho slate to gain from embarlilng iiiun
the uncertain sea of speculative manufactur
ing ?
H appears clear to mo that the only safe
and businesslike policy for the state Is to
get the greatest per diem cut of each Indi
vidual convict. The contractor thus takc.3
all the chances of business conditions , and
he Is pretty sure to bo a man who knows
more about the businers than any state
olllccr we could elect , and since ho under
stands how to get the money out of It , can
pay the state more than It could rerllzo In
any other way. A reasonable nuir acr of
hours could be agreed iipon , and certain
lines of manufacture which Interfered with
Nebraska enterprise be tabooed. If favorit
ism among the prisoners vrcrc then shown It
would bo at the expense of the contractor
or the Individual , It certainly would not
comu out of the pockets of the taxpayers
of the state. That the product of his labor
will to some extent go Into competition
with that of the honest toiler Is unfortunate ,
but I have seen no plan advanced as yet
to prevent that. It may be reduced to a
minimum , so far as Nebraska worklngmcn
are concerned nt least , and under the con
tract system better than any other. Prison
product Is notoi-lously Inferior to frco labor's
output , ami this will continue to have Its
commercial bearing.
* * *
Prom any point of view the problem Is
vexatious and unsatisfactory. It Is an out
rage that honest worklngmen must conic
Into the market against the labor of felons ,
but it Is very much bettor so than that
they should bo compelled to associate with
the felon himself , and no solution has yet
been reached or suggested by which this
competition may bo avoided entirely. One
way might be to make the name of the
prison a terror evil-doers by the severity
of Its rule ? , thus keeping the number of
prisoners to the minimum , and then If
jiiiles would send convicted murderers to
the gallows Instead of to the penitentiary
to continue to be a post that would also

going repairs on ono of Its boilers. It Is
a small screw steamer , and In appearance
looks like an ordinary tug boat. H resem
bles the ships of the United States navy In
one respect the hull Is painted white.
"Tho Three Krlends had been suspected
of being engaged In the business of carrying
arms , munitions of war and men to Cuba
to aid the cause of the Insurgents on that
Island , and nt that tlmo thcro were three
revenue cutters lying In the harbor watching
the diminutive craft to prevent the loadIng -
Ing of any of the contraband articles or
Its clearing port If they were loaded. The
revenue cutters were finally ordered to some
other point to watch some of the numerous
craft which arc engaged In the same busi
ness , and they were linrdly out of sight of
Jacksonville before the news was tclc-
srnphcd out over the country that the Three
[ 'rlend.s had started on another expedition.
This was the trip which has caused so much
Fuss , and during which It was reported nt
one time that the boat had had an armed
encounter with a Spanish war vessel.
"The captain of the Three Krlends Is
named Lewlu. He Is a young man , not over
"C or 27 years cf ago. He Is of medium
height , slender , and I'.us a small , brown
moustache. The vessel Is owned principally
by the sheriff of Duval county , Florida , In
which the city of Jacksonville Is locate'i.
Everybody In that section sympathizes with
the Cubans In their struggle and aid them
In every way possible , making It easy for
the vessels engaged In the filibustering business -
iness to get cargoes aboard and get away
without trouble.
"In addition to their sympathy the pcoplo
engaged In this business manage to mnko a
neat little sum out of carrying arms , am
munition and men to Cuba. It Is currently
reported that for every cargo landed on the
Island the owners of the vessel receive n
bonus of $5,000. "

All populist routes these dayn lend to Ver-
milllon , and every man who goes thcro
wants an olllce. Hut Governor-elect Leo l.i
keepliiR counsel with himself and la very
reticent. It Is now pretty generally con
ceded that Thomao II. Ayera. editor of the
Vermllllon Plain Talk , will bo chosen as the
govenior's private secretary. Captain John
A. Stanncld. ex-auditor of Mlnnehatia
county , Is n candidate for hank examiner , but
It la more than likely that the governor has
decided to give the place1 to Harry W.
Sawyer , cashier of the Hand County bank of
Miller. Mr , Sawyer Is an experienced bank
man , whllo Captain Statidold has never had
experience In matters Of that kind.
There Is a great hustle for the oil Inapoc-
toiahlp. This onice Is generally regarded as
a snap ; the salary being ? 1,000 , and the
work not materially Interfering with other
business engagements. H. E. Parker of
Sioux Kails , L. C. Campbell , a life Insur
ance agent of Ynnkton , Arthur Linn , editor
of the Canton Leader , and W. T. DeWoody
of Aberdeen nro a few of tnoao who want the
place. In thla connection It may bo paid
that there has been , ami Is now. much com
plaint oven the- state on account of the poor
miallty of the oil sold In South Dakota.
Many people ore now burning tallow cau-
d cs , and they arc giving better light than the
oil sold here. It Is generally understood
