HOLLOWNESS OF PRETENSIONS SHOWN UP
llnlniltirotiN Ilrcoriln of Dnlilnitin , IIil-

LINCOLN' . Sept. 23. ( Special. ) The fu-
ilon chairmen , who describe themselves on
the campaign circular as "seeking neither
place nor applause , " have according to the
etnto rcconlH done some peculiar things In
thepaat that would seem to call for some
thing exactly the reverse of applause.
One of the most prominent among them
In J. C. Dahlman , one of the do-nothing
secretaries of the State Hoard of Trans
portation. Dahlman was for four years
sheriff of D.iwcs county and the chance to
rldo over the state on the pretense of de
livering prisoners was n great source of
revenue for the thrifty reformer. The
amounts ho drew from the state for these
Junkets exceeded his total salary as sheriff
for the county and ho was moro than once
detected "padding" his bills. One Instance
where he managed to draw a considerable
num on a fictitious trip Is mentioned by
the Mutz "sniffling committee" In Its final
report. This committee cost the state $10-
000 and the few truths It told of the pre
tended "reformers" were not worth the
amount expended. 1'ago 03 of the commit
tee's final report says :
"Vouchers No. 09,541 and 72 , J. C. Dahl
man , sheriff of Dawes ; amount J340.05 , paid
November 28 and December 5 , 1891. The
receipts to these vouchers ahow that two
children wcro taken to the reform school
at Kearney on September 26 , 1891. Voucher
No. G9.G4I paid for the only trip that was
made , yet another voucher was made out and
the state paid for two trips , the fictitious
trip coating the state $100.90 "
The report goes on to say that money
collected for fictitious trips by sheriffs is
eubjcct to recovery by the state.
The report has been on ( lie with the gov
ernor for several months and up to date
Dahlman has made no move to pay back
the $160.90 fraudulently collected , and the
reform attorney general has made no move
toward enforcing the collection.
Chairman Edmlaten has a record In con
nection with the recount ballot frauds that
Is still fresh In the public mind. The at
tempt tn kidnap Simons , the man who
turned Informer , was a virtual admission
of guilt. Edmlstcn has a moro recent rec
ord as chief oil Inspector , when he padded
his expense bills and charged up railroad
fare when ho rode all the time on passes.
Tbo offlcl.il cxposuru of this fraud a few
months ago caused a sensation In the pop
ulist camp that will not soon be forgotten.
Still another Instance of Edmlsten's In
clination to fatten himself at the public
expense was In the leasing of the school
lands. On the 19th of April , 1890 , Edmlstcn
leased the northeast quarter of section SS ,
township 12 , range 21 , In Dawson county ,
making a payment amounting to $ S.70. In
the ntxt two years ho paid $37.60 , when
he null paying , allowed the lease to bo
canceled , but retained possession of the
land. On the 12th of June , 189S , Uncle
Jake made one of his famous grand stand
leasing trips to Dawson county and some
Individual , whoso name on the record is
Klven as "T , A. Dunn , " took out a lease
on the Edmlsten land by making a payment
of 1 cent per acre. That same day the
lease1 was transferred to Edmlstcn , who
all the time had held the land , and by the
sharp deal the state was defrauded of the
entire amount of the past due lease money.
At that tlmo ho was "seeking no applause , "
but was seeking school lands ut a cheap
The public record of Chairman Gnflln
could be dissected to the considerable edi
fication of the taxpayers of the state , but
It hardly seems necessary now , as the pop-
ocrnts claim to huvo successfully dumped
the llatlln-Poynter clique overboard.
In reading the final report of the Mutz
committee some good things arc found for
the reform oulplnls to explain. On page
78 attention Is called to the practice of
compromising claims that arc duo the state
nnd the committee hints that there Is much
corruption among public officials In these
deals. It also hints that through favoritism
or political Influence certain defaulters are
being protected from prosecution. The re-
Iirt then goes on to say :
"By an examination made July 21 , 1897 ,
by State Examiner Evcrlugham the county
treasuer of I'latto county was found to be
short JSO.C12.2.r ) . Of this there was due the
state $13,278.45. The treasurer and his
l.ondMiicn raid up the total amount of the
shortage due the county and at this time the
stile has not i revved n cent. "
When It Is remembered that the defaulter
icferred to nlove ia J. W. Lynch , n demo
crat of srent local Influence , nnd that he has
a brother who Is a deputy under Land Com-
misalonor Wolfe , nnd that the Lynch fam
ily la related to Senator Allen , It Is perhaps
no wonder that the collection of the $13-
278.45 Is not enforced. It Is said that ne
gotiations have been carried on between At
torney General Smyth and the Lynch bonds
men looking to the compromise of the debt
after the campaign Is over.
Opinion liy Smyth ,
Another Interesting chapter In the snif
fling report Is the one where Smyth decided
that public odlclals and clerks whose sal
aries arc specific could draw no extra com
pensation. The Smyth opinion , ns contained
on page SS of the report , reads as follows :
"Answering your communication of this
date , you are respectfully advised that In
the opinion of this cilice no employe of the
auditor's office , or any other ofllco or de
partment of the stute , Is entitled to extra
compensation for services rendered out of
ofllco hours. In the case to which you call
attention , If the work was done by n pcr-
eon holding a position for which the legis
lature has provided a certain sum as a sal
ary , that ; person cannot receive extra com
pensation for any service * performed for the
state , no matter whether performed during
oftlco hours or uot. Of course this does not
prevent nuy employe of the state from per-
Jormlns services for others and receiving
compensation therefor , but ho cannot expect
< ho state to pay him for such services.
Very truly yours , C. J. SMYTH ,
"Attorney General. "
In spite of this opinion , filed last winter ,
the state auditor , who claims to liavo
wrought ) so many reforms and saved a fabu
lous sum of money by his extreme vigilance ,
h&s made no demand on his own deputy to
refund the $450 drawn as extra compensa
tion In his ofllce. It would seem that the
auditor has only a small veneration for the
attorney general when It strikes at tbo
financial rake-off of the auditorial deputies.

The aupreme court today gave Its de
cision In the Home for the Friendless rase ,
allowing the writ and holding that the Etato
auditor was not justified In refusing to
examine and audit the claims of the homo
against the state appropriation. It holds
that every claimant has a right to have
his claim examined In order that an ap
peal mm * bo made from an adverse de
cision ; that the auditor Is required to keep
a record of his action and that a mem
orandum on a voucher returned to a claim
ant Is not such n record. The auditor , If
his records by mistake arc made to Incor
rectly state his action , may correct them.
The court docs not pass upon the merits
of the claims , but compels action on the
part of the state auditor , that the merits
may be.examined In the manner provided
by law. The cnso was brought on n prayer
to compel the auditor to pass upon the
claims and either allow or disallow them.

NEW YORK. Sept. 23. R. G. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade will say :
Europe will have to consider posslsble
American needs for money much more anx
iously In the future. Doubtless there h
been for ninny years a feeling that the
now continent could bo put oft with prom
ises , but the control of this country over
money matters In other countries Is comIng -
Ing to be that of n master. Our banks lend
over there heavily when It is the most con
venient market for them , but they drop
Europe when they want money nnd no lon
ger have occasion to limit their drafts.
This country Is not drawing on Europe
n-i largely to pay for brcadstuffs as It did
n year ngo and wheat exports for the week ,
flour Included , have been 3.0C3.20J from At
lantic ports , against 3.C77.S6S last year and

last year , making for the three weeks 10-
023,491 from both coaets , flour Included ,
against 13.569,629 last year. Prices have
risen sharply about 4 cents for the week
and the exports of corn , though not as
large as last year , have been heavy In com
parison with any other year. The price Is
Reports from different cities disclose a
wonderful nctlvlty at the chief centers , of
Acstern trade , the dispatches from Chicago ,
St. Paul and St. Louis being especially sig
nificant. The oaptern dealers seem to hardly
realize that the real activity is at the west ,
although their own tradeIs excellent. At
every eastern market , It Is commonly said ,
no larger trade has ever been known , un
less In 1SD2 , but the western cities are run
ning things much after their own taste this
year , having greater advantages than ever
before In heavy bt.nk accounts , while the
exchanges for the week fall below thos"e of
last year 3 to 5 per cent , they are 13.1 per
cent larger than In the same week In 1892.
The Iron and steel trnde expands with
a rapidity which throws Into the shade all
expectations with n steel famine In Germany
nnd Great Britain In the market for ten
thousand tons of plates nnd the American
works are crowded for months ahead. New
orders at Chicago cover 30,000 tons tin pinto
bars , besides 7,000 tons Bold at Philadelphia.
Rails are tn such demand that the makers
are to met with expectation of advancing
prices , sonio sales having been made from
Chicago below agreed quotations for deliv
ery at the far west.
Plates are strong everywhere , but on ac
count of car construction especially strong
at Chicago and the demand for bars on the
Rsim account IB heavy , with one order nt
Chicago for l.OCO and several others for COO
cars each. Prices have slightly advanced for
pl&tcs , bars and for wire nails , which are
In much better demand than herctofote.
Coke production Increases , the output nt
ConnellsvlllK for the week having been 140-
658 tons , against 137,171 for the previous
week nnd tin Is somewhat stronger nt 16 1-5
cents , reflecting an advance at London ,
while copper Is quiet at 12.5 cents for lake
nnd lead comparatively Insctlvs at 4 cents.
Tin plaice re selling at J2.82W for full
weight besscmer. The copper production' ' In
August was 19,508 tons domestic , agallibt
til)0 ! ) tons foreign and the lead production
ns officially reported hap been 156,113 tons
for the half year , against 289,598 tons for
the full year 1897.
The textile Industries arc not sharing In
the general Improvement to a full extent.
In rnrt beunusi * the neavy decline In com
mon with large stocks of goods accumulated
makes the mills disposed to wait for future
developments and In part because the prlco

Improved I'rlpi-n of AVln-nl nnil Flour
mid lU'ltor Forelnrii Hnylnn.
NEW YORK. Sept. 23. Brartstreet's to
morrow will say :
Favorable trade developments manifest
themselves chiefly along the lines previously
noted. The Importance of largo export de
mand to the country's domestic Interest Is
Illustrated by the Improved tone nnd prices
of wheat nnd flour this week , growing out
of the better foielpn buying Induced by less
f.ivornbln Russian crop reports , sm.illor
shipments from that country and apparently
continued careful selling bv American pro
ducers. Raw cotton , on the other hand ,
reflects probabilities of continued plentiful
supply and rather slow demand In quota
tions , lower than the lowest point reached
In the year of depression , 1894 , when a
largo yield was coincident w'lth poor trade , I
industrial troubles nnd tight money. From '
the west nnd northwest reports lndlnto
largely the former cheerful strain. The vol.
ume of trade ns a whole Is evidently equal
to any previous record.
At the south low priced cotton and yellow
fever quarantines affect trnde adversely ,
one section being counterbalanced
by less favorable advices from oth
ers. Favorable conditions on the Pacific
coast are most numerously reported In the
states of Oregon nnd Washington. Conserv
ative management earlier In the year has

Irregularity has been the chief feature of
speculation. Professional trading and
manipulation furnish the bulk of the act
ivity and the public Is hardly a factor , al
though committee houses are fairly busy.
London has bought a few stocks on bal
ance , but as a whole the market has repre
sented a struggle between bull and bear
speculative Interest's ' , In which the money
market and the gold Importations have been
used with some effect to Influence sentiment.
The principal movements of the week ,
however , have been In stocks like Sugar ,

condition or especial manipulation.
The reduction of the New York bank sur
plus reserves to 14,000,000 , shown by last
Saturday's averages , was followed by fall
ing of loans this week and by n C per cent
call money rate. This last , however , was
only momentary and not only were assur
ances given by banking authorities that
business wns satisfactorily adjusted , but as
the week progressed there was a falling of
rates , and the Importation of 46,214.000 gold
In London for shipment to New York as
sisted In bringing about cnslcr rates for
call loans , and a moro confident feeling In
regard to money. This belief was not shaken
by the advance in the Hank of England dis
count rate on Thursday and the sharp nd-
vnnco In Interest In London , which would
Indicate that opposition will be offered to
further large American withdrawals of gold.
Probably the most Important event of the
week was the declaration of IVi per cent
yearly dividend on Union Pacific preferred
last Thursday. Yet a portion of the st'rcet
seemed to bo disappointed with these re
sults , because the company had earned In
the first six months of its existence not only
2 per cent for the preferred , but Komctblng
for the common stock. IJoth the common

of the conservative action of the manage
ment. Northern Pacific stocks wcer stron ; ;
throughout the week. They had excellent
foreign support. Manhattan was active and

to lOOVi on reports of Impending nnd favor
able developments about the electrical cqulp-
ment of the property. H afterward , however -
over , reacted again to SG'.fc. The Haltlmoro
& Ohio securities were strong early In the
week , on the announcement of the deal , by
which J. J. Hill nnd a western syndlcact ac-

The Industrials were , however , the active
part of the list und tiio feature of the mar

early In the week was attended by liquida
tion of long stocks and by reports that the
trade was at last Hearing an acute stage.
The largo short Interest secured at the de
cline was responsible for the subsequent
rally to 123 , but the stock again reacted and
wa slrregular and sensitive In view of the
uncertainty surrounding the trade situation.
American Tobcnco has been violently

that a partial combination of plug manufac
