LONDON" , Sept. 3. A report which lacks

It is Bald that the loss of the Anglo-
Egyptian army Is 2.000 men , while that of
the dervishes Is placed tit 8,000.
11 p. m. Up to a late hour this evening
no confirmation of the report of the capture
of Khartoum had been received nt the for
eign offtco or the war office.
The Evening Telegraph In its 3 o'clock
edition this afternoon publishes a brief dis
patch saying :
All the forts of Oradurman have boon
destroyed. Great success. No casualties.
The British war office at noon today re
ceived a dispatch from Nasrl , on the Nile ,
eayu that a gunboat had returned there and
Iiad reported that there wcro no casualties
among the Anglo-Egyptian forces , that the
right bank of the river had been completely
cleared-of nil forte , that the forts on Tutl
Island , opposite Otndurman , has been de
molished and that the guns had been
The dispatch nlso said the howitzer
practice of the Slradar's force was excellent.
The war offlw , later In the day , received
another dispatch from General Sir Herbert
Kitchener , by way of Nasrl. It was not
dated and read as follows :
Owing to the wet weather the lines have
been broken and telegraphic communication
has been Interrupted. Am sending this to
Nasrl to bo forwarded.
The march has been very favorable. Prac
tically none has fallen out of the ranks or
boon Invalided.
During the two days we have driven In

the entire Dervish force Issued from Omdur
mnn nnd were clearly visible. I estimated
his force at 33,000 men. They advanced at
11 a. m.
They advanced nt 11 o'clock a. m. as If
to attack us , to meet which I disposed of
our force In a good open position , with n
clear field of fire. The kallfl'9 force had
halted three miles southwest of our position ,
uml Is now there , at 0 p. m.
Early this morning , according to orders ,
the gunboats advanced , towing a howitzer
battery and barges , In support of the Arabs
on the right bank. The howitzers took up
a position opposite Omdurruan and the gun
boats bombarded the forts. They have not
returned , but their fire has partially de
molished the dome over the Mahdl's tomb.
All well.
The Sirdar's dispatch was apparently sent
after receiving Kuppel's report and the tele
gram breaks off at an Important point.
Further news is awaited hero with Intense

MANILA , Philippines , Sept. . " , . A Hong
Kong deputation , representing the southern
1'hlllpplnes and consisting of the best and
richest natives of Panay , Mlndoro. Cebu and
Mindanao , visited United States Consul
\Vllllams yesterday and urged that every
possible effort be made for the annexation
of the whole of Iho Philippine Islands.
The deputation declared that all classes , the
\vnrllho mountaineers as well as those en
gaged in mercantile pursuits , would welcome -
como the stars nnd stripes and had resolved
never to submit to Spanish or Tagal rule.
They also said there were 4,000 men , many
of them armed with rifles , near Hello
ready to support the Americans. They re
fused to join in the clamor for Independence ,
which they consider a mlstako and Imprac
ticable. They only wish for annexation to
the United States. The delegation pro
poses to Interview General Otis , the Ameri
can commander , to appeal to President Mc-
Klnley and to confer with Agulnaldo's fol
lowers , with the view of arranging for a
combined movement to insist upon annexa
tion. They will also ask that the In
surgent regiments ho enrolled In the Ameri
can nrmy with American officers and that
the Insurgent chiefs be given American ap
pointments under General Otis.
Agulnaldo remains 0.1 Dakoor. Ho re
cently wrote an Impertinent letter to Gen
eral Otis , which resulted in his receiving a
sharp snub. The Insurgent leader will
probably render himself amenable to ths
American authorities.

President Horace G. Hurt of the Union
Pacific yesterday gave out some further de
tails regarding the building of n union pas
senger station In 'this ' city. The plans have
been approved by the board of directors of
the Union Pacific Railroad company nnd
the contrast for actual construction will bo
let within 'three weeks. It Is expected that
work will certainly bo begun by October
15 and possibly before that da to. About
nine months will bo required to complete
the big structure.
The new union station will be located cast
of Tenth street , about two blocks north of
the Uurllngton's now station , or about
where Marcy street now appears. It will
bo a handsome and substantial structure of
sandstone and Omaha pressed brick. The
superstructure of the building will reach
to a height of seventy feet above the level
of the Tenth street viaduct. The station
vlll be connected with the viaduct , but the
main watting room wilt bo on the ground
floor. Around the north side of the station
hero will extend a circular driveway , grad
ually sloping down from .tho level of the
laduct to the ground floor. The
exact dimensions of the building
arc not known here nt present , but will
be this week when copies of the plans are
eceivcd. The well known firm of Frost
& Granger of Chicago has drawn the plans.
The members of this firm are experienced
architects of railway stations and the fine
new station of 'the ' Milwaukee road In Min
neapolis Is n part of their work.
IiioliiiU-N Another Vlmltict.
A viaduct will bo built at the Ninth
street crossing of the Union Pacific tracks
running < o the north yards. It Is probable
hat with this viaduct to Insure safety
Ninth street will bo used considerably as a
horoughfare to and from the new union
station. It Is now well paved and Is free
from street car tracks.
In addition to building a new passenger
station nnd providing a viaduct over the
tracks at Ninth street the Union Pacific
will make extensive Improvements in its
yards here. A very large freight yard to
iiet't the growing demands of the freight
service of the road will be laid out and the
tracks leading to the now station rear
In addition to the Union Pacific the fol-
owing railroads will enter the new passen
ger station as soon as It Is completed : The
hlcago , Milwaukee & St. Paul , the Chicago ,
Rock Island & Pacific , the Chicago & North
western , the Kansas City , Plttsburg & Gulf.
Tie Missouri Pacific railway will follow
these roads to the new Union passenger sta
tion as soon as it can make the necessary
arrangements to run its trains In from South
Omaha. This change will allow the Mis
souri Pacific to save about twenty minutes'
tlmo In Its train service , ns twenty-seven
minutes are now required to reach South
Omaha from the Webster street station. The
Missouri Pacific will then abandon Its Belt
Line around the city so far as passenger
train service is involved.
The Fremont , Elkhorn & Missouri Valley
railroad and the Chicago , St. Paul , Minne
apolis & Omaha railroad , both members of
the Northwestern system , will enter the new
station when provision shall be raada for
running their trains from their present
tracks , along the east side of tli2 city , to
Tenth and Marcy streets.
A meeting of the South Omaha Live Stock
exchange will ba held Monday afternoon for
the purpose of making arrangements for the
entertainment of visiting stockmen who are
expected here next month. The National
Live Stock exchange , the Interstate Asso
ciation of Live Stock Sanitary Boards nnd
the National Live Stock association of Den
ver will meet here on October 11 , 12 and 13.
These meetings are considered of the great
est importance and every effort will bo made
to make the vls'tlng stockmen feel at home.
Committees are to be appointed for the en
tertainment of the members of the different
associations nnd nil arrangements are to bo
perfected before the delegates commence to
arrive. As now arranged , the sessions are
to be held In the present Exchange ball ,
but It is hoped that the stock yards com
pany can bo induced to erect the proposed
pavilion. An effort Is now being made to
Induce the directors of the stock yards com
pany to authorize the erection of this buildIng -
Ing at once. It was stated yesterday that
If orders were given now to go ahead the
structure could bo completed before the date
of the conventions. The plans are all
drawn and with plenty of help the building
could be put up In four weeks. It Is possi
ble that at the meeting Monday resolutions
may bo passed requesting the stock yards
company to take "action at once.

There have been any number of dances
given out at the Indian village on the expo
sition grounds , but the ono that was put up
last night \\as the prize winner. It was a war
dance and was called at 6:30 : o'clock and
continued for nearly four hours. It was
i participated in by .representatives from all
ot the tribes with the exception of the
Arizona Apaches , who refused to take a part
for the reason that they regard the war
dance a sacred function which should not bo
observed In the presence of nny except their
own people.
To start the dance nt the Indian village
last night , a ring some ICO feet In diameter
' was roped off to keep the whites back. Into
| this fully 200 bucks , clad In scanty attire ,
I bedecked with bright-colored paints and
i feathers entered and squatted upon their
haunches around the musicians , who were
provided with drums. Then followed the
old men and the women of the tribes. They ,
however , did not enter the charmed circle ,
but contented themselves by sitting Just out
side the ropes. Like the braves who had
shed their blood on the battlefields , they
were robed nnd painted in gay and striking
colors. Still they were more clothing and
seemed to better enjoy the cool breeze that
drifted In from the north.
At n signal that nobody but an Indian could
understand , Crow Dog , u Ponca , Jumped
Into the center of the ring and letting out
a whoop that tore a three-cornered hole In
the night and at the same tlmo caused the
white women to cling more closely to their
escorts nnd drive some of the small chil
dren almost Into hysterics , recounted some
of the acts of bravery that ho had per
formed. With gestures much like those of
a ward politician , Mr. Dos told of a tlmo
some twenty-five years nco when he went
on a hunting tour Into the northwest nnd
with a number of companions surprised and
scalped fifteen Dlackfeet. Ho said that they
brought tbe scalps home , and ns evidence
of the fact , pulled out a small piece of
skin with lone hnlr attached.
Ulght nt this point there was a break
In the oratory of Mr. Dog. A brave from
the Ulackfeet tribe Intimated that the alleged -
, leged scalp was nothing but a chunk ot
skin cut from the back ot n black dog.
Mr. Crow DOB was about to arcue the
point , when he was Informed that he had
better keep still , as the Dlacttfoot was only
playing a part.
WhinWolf'M Story Stamli.
Whether Mr. Dog was telling tbe truth
or simply running In a bluff was not de
cided , for before there was an opportunity
of settling the matter the master of cere
j _ ' monies called tlmo and the dance was on
3' ' Ono hundred half naked Indians , wearlnf
l huge war bonnets of eagle feathers stuck
Into red flannel , bounded to their feet am
commenced to dance , keeping time to the
sound of the drum. This dance _ and music
continued for some fifteen minutes , the In
dlans Jumping around like a lot of froze !

Dravo Dear had been itching to tell ot
BOino of the bravo things that ho had Cone
and when he got a chance ho said that ho
tad the record to sow how ho had won
ho right to dance. Being an Influential
Indian , his proof was not required and ho
was Invited to set the hot foot for the
younger men of the different tribes. The
dance that he figured In was one of the
emotional of the evening.
Numerous other Indians detailed the hair
raising acts that they performed In their
younger days nnd the old men and women
vouched for them , BO that none who nt-
empted to be first to set the pace for the
dance were deprived ot the pleasure.
There is a peculiarity about the Indian
war dance. It is n religious , but not n
sacred ceremony. Any man who has taken
a human life In battle may participate , but
others are barred from the charmed circle.
In olden times It was nn Incentive for
young men to go out nnd make records for
hemsclves. It Is also said that half a
century ago no Indian maiden would look
with favor upon a man who was not en
titled to take part In the danco. That Is
he story told by some of the old men ot
the different tribes , but with the young
and Intelligent Indians It is taken with a
grain of allowance. At the dance last night
a number of young boys participated , but It
s said that they were let In Just for fun
and that they might play a part.

It made the hit of the season. Fireworks

It was apparent that the soldier boys were
the lions of the evening and after the con

given a reception that must have gladdened
their hearts. Their hands were grasped bj

Judge Scott Holds Holmes nnd Quivey to Ba
in Contempt of Oourti
IlliCht In Inherent nnd Not Subject to
Statutory IlcHtrlutloni or I.tuil-
tntloiiM AiitldnteM IIU- ,
tory lu ItM
As anticipated , the decision of Judge Scott
was rendcied this morning denying the mo
tion for a new trial in the contempt case ot
L. D. Holmes , president , and Rev. Elmer P.
Quivey , superintendent , of the Nebraska
Children's Home society , In the matter of
the application of the parents of the Dodd
children for a writ of habeas corpus.
Holmes and Quivey had failed to produce
the children In court as ordered or to dis
close their whereabouts , and the Judge bad
fined them $200 and ordered them committed
to the county Jail until the children were
produced. Before making his formal order ,
though , ho had asked the attorneyn to produce -
duce their respective authorities on both
sides of the controversy , nnd the opinion
given was In deciding this argument.
For the defense Attorney Carroll S. Mont
gomery had contended that by a rule of the
district court all habeas corpus matters
properly come under the criminal head and
should bo determined by the Judge In charge
of the criminal docket ; further , that the
statute had not expressly empowered a
Judge sitting in chambers during vacation to
punish for contempt In the event of failure
to obey the writ.
CoverM the Whole Cane.
Judge Scott's opinion goes over the whole
history of the case in detail , Including the
complication of the case'somewhat by the
clerk of the court having delivered to the
Hheriff for service the original order of the
court for a writ Instead of a writ Itself.
Hrlelly , his opinion amounts to this :
No r ilo of coutt can have the force or
effect of repealing or In effect abrogating or
nullifying positive statutory law governing
the courts or Judges thereof. No rule of
court can relieve a Judge of the court from
his duty under the statute law of the state.
The statute , section 363 , chapter xxxlv , pro-
vlOs that a Judge must "forthwith allow"
u writ of habeas corpus. The statute em
powers all the Judges of the district court
alike , rules of the court to the contrary not
withstanding. A writ of habeas corpus is a
writ of right. It Is not only u common law
writ , but It antedates the common law.
Judge Coolcy says "that1 the writ antedates
the common law of England and that Its
origin Is so ancient that It 'Is lost In ob
scurity. " The mandate embodied In the
writ , "Havo thou the body , " reaches to all
parts of the state ; nay more , It compels ono
In the state who has sent the party named
In the writ out of the state to go to the
uttermost boundaries of the United States ,
and bring from thence the body of the per
son before the Judge ordering the writ that
the alleged detention may bo Inquired Into
and the uaity released from detention. Stat
utes were not passed to give the right , butte
to compel the observance of rights already
existing. The right , then , to the beneficent
fruits of this great common law writ of
right Is not dependent upon statutes for Its
Invocation In any cnso where thn common
law authorizes the writ , nor can statutes or
constitutions or the people , or the court , or
Judge deny any human being his common
law right to this writ In a republican form
of government.
Intent of thr Statute.
When thf legislature granted to any Judge
of the district court the power to hear and
determine applications for the writ of habeas
corpus , the power of such Judco In that bs-
half was not limited to the expreu wording
of the statute , but nny Judge In such cases
has the power to do whatsoever Is necessary
and Incidental In order to exercise fully and
completely thn power to "hear and deter
mine" such cases , the same as If such neces
sary , Incidental power was conferred by ex
press wordtt In the statute. By the consti
tution of this atato. this common law right
of right was preserved to the people of the
state In their constitution. The common
law then Is lu force In this ilat * ; manifestly

This power of .tho judge In vacation over
hnbcaa corpus cases Is derived from the com
mon law , and section 8 of our bill of rights ,
and Independent of the statute giving thn
Judge the "power to hear and determine" In
habeas corpus proceedings. That section of
our statute Is only declaratory of n common
w authority of a Judge nt chambers re
specting the writ.
How can a court , having the power to hear
and determine' a matter , enforce that power ,
but by attachment and fine nnd Imprison
ment of those who hold such power In con
tempt , nnd thus attempt to defeat the oxpr-
clso of such power ? At chambers , a Judge
Is a Judicial tribune In habeas corpus cases ,
and ns such ho has the power to use nil the

obedience to the writ.
