'DENVER. Sept. 17. After many months
of effort anil repeated experiments a cure tor
cattle fever lias been found. Dr. V. A. Nor-
gaard of tills city Is the discoverer. Solution
after solution wa tried by him In the effort
to nuil ana that would ho effectual and
cheap , as "I'll as Immediate In Its results ,
The plan for dealing with the fever Is pri
marily to exterminate the Insect known as
the "tick , " which abounds on fever-stricken
cattle , and through thn means of which the
disease Is communicated. To do this the
cattle are forced to swim through a tolutlon
in a vat. What the uolutlon Is Is not di
vulged at the present lime , hut crude pe
troleum In lined. When the succesalul ex
periment was tried twenty-five head of very
"ticky" cattle were forced to swltn through
the solution , and It was noticed that whlo :
standing on this drip board there was almost
a perfect rain of ticks falling otf the cat
tle. They were put Into a special pen , and
the next duy , Just twelve nours after the
expel Itnent wat > tried , a rigid examination
was proM'culcd and the examiners failed to
find a Hltiglu live tick in the whole herd.
There was no damage done to the eyes or
skins of the cattle dipped and not a tingle
bad effect resulted from the dipping.
If the new remedy proven to do all that It
4s staled It can do , thn cattle market will
experience Homcwhat of a revolution .nd
about 5,000 head of cattle will ho shipped
norlh each year during the now prohibited
season , which extends from February 15 to
November 15. "Tho fever line , " from
beyond the limits of which no cattle can bo
shipped to 'the north * during the prohibited
jiorlod , as It now Blinds , stretches from
ocean to ocean , and Arizona , New Mexico ,
Texas , Indian Territory , Arkansas , Mlf ls-
nlppl , Alabama , Virginia , part of West Vir
ginia and Louisiana form the district
State Veterinarian Grosswell < s very much
pleased with the results of Dr. Vorgaard's
experiments and says without doubt the
long-flought remedy has been found. A
meeting of all states and territories that
handle cattle has been called to meet In
Fort Worth on September 27 , and at this
meeting It Is expected the new scheme of
dipping cattle will be shown , and should It
prove a success there many of the states
will bo ready to so modify their laws that
the cottlo of the south can enter the north

I'ocullnr Action of ArtoNlnii U'cllN ill
CHAMBEUI.AIN , S. D. , Sept. 17. ( Spe
cial , ) A peculiarity In the volume of ar
tesian water supply was recently noted here.
The city receives Its water supply from an
artenlan well , situated on the side of a hill
about 200 fctt obove the principal street. rhi >
flow from the well has always been ample
to supply the needs of the inhabitants and for
flro protection. A short tlmu ago an ar
tesian well was sunk for the purpose of fur-
iilshlng power for running a roller mill. This
Is at a point more than 200 feet lower than
the city well and distant from It probably
half a mile. About the time water was
struck In the new well , the How of the city
well began to diminish nnd continued doing
so until the force was hardly .Kiifllclent to
force the water over the top of the casing.
! A few days ago the ( low of the new well
was reduced sulllclently to furnish the power
necessary for- running the mill. Within a
Bhort time ) thn How of Inn city well com
menced to Increase and has now reached
practically Its former volume. This would
Indicate that the new well affected It but
In some quarters It Is bcllevod that It wco
only a coincidence , and that the decrease
nnd subsequent Increase of the flow of the
city well was due to other causes , ono of
them being the probable temporary choking
of the pipe.

CHAMBERLAIN , S. I ) . , Sept. 17. ( Spe
cial. ) Good progress is being made on the
government Indian school now In process of
construction here , and It Is expected that It
will bo completed In tlmu for the optmlng of
the Institution about November 1. The In
dian schools at Lower Urule and Crow Creek
agencies arc overcrowded , and the surplus
of children of school ago , aggregating 200 or
jnoro on the two reservations , will attend the
Chamberlain school , . The outlook for a largo
attendance is , therefore , very bright , and It
Is thought that within a few years the school
will have to bo enlarged to accommodate all

United States commission for the Transmls-

action was taken at a cabVet meeting held
yesterday. It was suggcsled lhat a member
of the exccullve branch of lho Rovcrnmenl

the name of the asslslanl secretary of agri
culture as such representative. The sugges
tion was approved and the preuldetil named.
Colonel Drlgham as president of the com
This appolntmcnl In a measure completes
the organization of the commission which
will have charge of the government appropri
ation for the exposition , and the exhibit
which will be made , although reprcssntatlves
of the War , Interior tid : Postofilco depart
ments , have not yet been named. These
appointments , however , can be made at any
tlmo. There was quite a conlest for the
honor of being at the head of 'Iho commh-
slQii , and lhat Is what has delayed Ihe or
ganization of the body. It Is expected now )
that Ihe olhor department will at c 'co

formed by the commission will bo to select
such portions of the government exhibit at
the exposition at Nashvllio as will be re
quired In the exhibit In Omaha next year.
Rich member of the commission will select

partment as ho deems best adapted for trans
portation to Omaha , and the other portions of

After the commission organizes and com
mences Its work It will bo possible for the
public to begin to got some Idea of the
character of the exhibit to bo made by the
government. Up to this time the situation
has been largely chaotic , but definite plans
and alms may soon bo outlined. The comple
tion of the commission will be of Importance
also to the local managers of the exposition ,
because there are some matters connected
with Ihe general exhibits which the mana
gers have been postponing to learn what the
government expected to do on those same
lines. In fact there are soveril Important
projects on foot In connection with the ex
position of a national or historical charac
ter which the managers hope to get the gov
ernment to undertake on Its own account ,
end steps looking to an agreement or under
standing between the national commission
and the executive committee may now bo
It Is not altogether Improbable that the
members of Ihe commission may visit Omaha
at an early date to meet the officers of the
exposition and to learn what has been done
toward building the enterprise , and to get
seme Idea of Its character and scope. It
will also bo necessary for them to Inform
themselves as .to the surroundings and con
veniences of the grounds that they may
have a more Intelligent Idea of Ihe style of
exhibit to make.
The settlement of this friendly strife for
the position of president of the commission
by the appoir.-tment of Colonel Urlgham , and
thus making the way clear for an early
organization. Is welcomed as a good piece
of news by the ofllcers of the exposition , who
have been more or less embarrassed by the
length of time It has taken to accomplish
j Mils desirable result.

General Charles V. ) Manderson yester

partmenl at Washington .lo his request , made
sometime ago ? thal > partsof the old hatlle-
shlp "Omaha" be sent to this city for ex
hibition at Ihe Transmlaslsslppl and Inter
national Exposition and for permanent
keeping In the city public library
after the close of the exposition. Theodore
Roosevelt , assistant secretary of the navy ,
has given the matter careful consideration ,
and as a result of his Investigations the
billet-head and Ihe bell of Ihe battleship
will form a part of the army and navy ex
hibit of the exposition here next year.
In his letter to General Mandcrson A&-
FlsJant Secretary Roosevelt states that the
blllcthead and the bell are the only parts ot
the old battleship , which now does duty as
n quarantine station at Mare Island , on the
Pacific ccast. lhat aro' feasible to exhibit.
As for the permanent exhibition ot thes ?
parts In the public library , the Navy de-
c-irtment suggests thai It would lake a special
act of congress to aulhorl/e Ihe lTanafer
General Mandcrson thinks that this could be
earned without ellfllculty. The picture of
ho "Omaha" now on exhibition In the nubile
Ibrary Is slid to be very faithful reproscnta-
Ion of the battleship In which a now In-
ercst has been recently created In this city.

At the regular meeting of the executive
committee of the Transmlsslsslppl Exposition
yesterday a general discussion arose among
the members of the committee regarding
statcmmts that arc said to be In circulation
n certa'u quarters to the effect that the
exposition will not be opened on tlmo , Juno
1 , 1898. Tlie mcmbcm of the committee
who were present united In saying most
emphatically that there would bo no failure
to have the gates opened promptly on time
and that every energy was befog tuu.ed
0 that end. In this connection the secretary
was Instructed to furnish the committee
with' a statement , showing the contracts
-ilrcady let for buildings , the date of the
contracts and the dcto at which the bulld-
1 gs are required to be complete.
The actlcn taken at the meeting last
Saturday night In awarding the contract
'or the carpenter work on .the Agriculture
julldlng to the Congress Construction com-
iany of Chicago was reconsidered and the
en tract for this work was awarded to Goldle
& Sons of Chicago.
When the blfia for the Agriculture bulldlnp
were opened It was found that the Con
gress Construction company had offered to
lo the carpenter work for $28,569 , b-jt , it
was stipulated that painting and glazing and
illlng wore i.ot Included. The next higher
bid , on Us fact , was ttiat of Goldie & Sons
of Chicago , J39.4-IO. The bid ofV. . 11. I'ar-
rlsh of Omaha was $311,874. Goldie offered
to deduct $1,000 for piling llf done by the
exposition , while Parrlsh offered to allow
M.TOO for the ESIIIO Item.
At the meeting yesterday afternoon Presi
dent Wattles , as actlrg nnnager for the De-
nrtment of Hulld'ngs and Grounds , deported
that the Cei grass Construction company ,
when notified that it wis the lowest blddei1
lad said a twistako had been made In the
Igures and that the figures given did not
'nclude a lot of Items beside/ / those specified
in the bid. The president of the compsciy ,
Gustavo Ehrhart , e-ame to Omaha with alll-
; lavlts to show that a large number of
things had been omitted In the schedule from
which had been made up the lump bid.
FORFEITING ITS CHECK.
Prcdldent Wattles served notice on Mr.
Ghrhart to sign the contract within twenty-
tour hours or forfeit the check of $400 whlsh
had accompanied the bid. This time expired
at 10 o'clock yesterday morning , and Mr.
Ehrhart appeared with a lawyer and said
he was ready to sign the contract , but In
sisted on being allowed to put his construc
tion en the bid , excluding all the roofing ma
terial , translucent material proposed to be
used for skylight , painting and glazing , pil
ing , etc.
President Wattles then had estimates
made of the probable cost of the items which
Mr. Ehrhart wanted to omit , , with the follow
ing result : Translucent material , $3,172.07 ;
roofing , $1,100 ; painting and glazjg : , $1,400 ;
piling , $1,300 ; total , $6,792.97. Mr. Eurhart's
estimate of .the cost of these Items was
$1,00 more than that quoted , making his
total bid for the building complete without
thestaff. . $36,541.97 , or $2,898.03 below the
bid of Goldie & Sons.
These facts and figures were discussed
in detail by the executive committee , and
It was finally decided that the course taken
by the Congress Consl ruction company in
dicated that the execution of a contract with
that concern for this building would probably
result In endless trouble , as It was evident
from attendant circumstances that the atti
tude taken was merely a subterfuge. The
action of the committee In awarding the
cci tract to this company Was therefore re
considered , the disposition of the-check being
left to the president.
This left the contract In the air , and a
discussion then ensued on awarding the job
to cither Goldie & Sons of Chicago or Par
rlsh of Omaha. Goldie was lower than Par
rlsh , If the piling was given to him , but
higher by $260 ; If the exposition did the pil
ing. A strong argument In Goldle's favor ,
however , was the fact that he asked only
eighty days In which to complete the buildIng -
Ing , whereas Parrlsh wanted 150 days , or
five months. This point proved a winner ,
as the strong sentiment of the committee
was to the effect that the buildings must
be rushed to counteract the Impression that
little .Is being done. It was decided that
It would delay matters very materially for
the exposition to attempt to do the piling ,
and these two facts taken together out
weighed the strong sej tlinent In ravor of
awarding the contract to an Omaha man.
The contract was then awarded to Goldie
& Sons , thus giving this firm the two largest
bulldVga on the grounds , viz. : The Mines fn-J
Mining nnd the Agriculture buildings. The
contract on the former requires It to bo
completed within ninety days from the exe
cution of the contract and the latter build
ing Is to be completed within eighty days.
Mr. Goldie stated yesterday that he would
have his material for the Agrlcultuio bul'dlng
ordered within twenty-four hours after he
received his contract.

plans and specifications of the Art building

The election In which Douglas county ro-
nihllcaiifi expect to roll up a majority that
vlll furnish n decisive precedent for the more
mportanf victory of 1S9S Is less than two
months distant , and It is expected that the
county convention and primaries will bo
ailed about October 1. This will leave
list a month for active campaigning , but In
ho meantime the personnel of the ticket that
s to be nominated Is occupying the attention
of a large and active element of the party.
There are two things that arc emphasized
n this ante-convention activity. One Is the
general demand for a ticket that Is strong
nnd clean In every particular , and another
n n disposition to push the younger class
of politicians to the front. The fact that
inly about thirty days will Intervene between
he convention and the election Is n snfllclcnt
ml lent UHI that the campaign will bo sharp
It Is urged by republicans on > all sides ,
hat with the right sort of a ticket the
larly can win a victory that will ge a long
vay toward winning back the control of the
state. It Is well known that events slnco
ast fall have convinced thousands of farm-

SECOND TERMERS IN THK HACK.
The rcnomlimtlon of Sheriff .McDonald and.
Tieasurcr George llelmrod Is practically conceded -
ceded , nnd no one 1ms tnuntlrncd any de
signs on these places on the ticket. County
Judge Haxter Is also a candidate for re-
loiulnation , but the fact that he has already
terved two terms has brought out a nura-
ier of other candidates , each of whom
claims a following of more or less extensive
> roportlons. Joseph Crow of the Ninth
ward expects to como into thu convention
with a delegation , and \V. 11. Ten Eyck , II.
i. Day and Charles .Miles aic alsa active
landldates. Judge Haxtcr's popularity Is
. 'lvlng them serious trouble , however , and
.here is a considerable element who dcclaro
that ho Is the most desirable candidate at
this time. t
The warmest light Just nt present seems to
! > o that for the republican nomination for
register of deeds. The leading candidates
ire It. S. Berlin of ( he Third ward , Fred
Hrunlng of the Second. T. S. Crocker nnd
John T. Dalley of the Eighth nnd Henry L.
Akin and George C. Tlioaipron of the Ninth.
II. S. llerlln will undoubtedly have his own
ward solid , and he Is regarded as ono of
the two or three candidates who lead the
[ iroccsslon. Fred Ilrunlng expects to liavo
lho Second ward , but hero hlo candidacy la
complicated by the light for the county
commlssloncrshlp. There are two candidates
for county commissioner In his ward , and
whllo both of these are said to bo friendly
to Brunlng , the delegation that Is selected
will bo hampered by the dllllcult task of-
making candidates for two olllces. Colonel
Akln's friends Insist that ho IB not making
an active fight , but he expects to coma luto-
thu convention as n dark home In cnso the
opportunity presents Itself. The Eighth
ward will present either Crocker or Dalloy , .
and the contest between the two will bo

The sharpest light on the county com-
mlsaionershlp will eome In the Second ward ,
where ( Jus Ilarte and V.V. . Corliss are con
testing republican candidates. Most of the
active primary fighters are for Ilarte , and ac
cording -to all precedents ho has the Insldo
track. Hut It Is Intimated that Corliss has
tied up with Fred Ilnmlng and In this caao
the primaries will bo Intercotlng. 10. M.
Stcnbcrg has pulled out of the race and so

A. C. Foster , also of the Seventh , hao ap
parently dropped out , his friends still as
sert that he will be found In the race.
There Is only one candidate In the field
