The public building bill, which will be reported tomorrow by the chairman of the public buildings and grounds commit tee of the house, contains the following provisions for Nebraska: For addition to Lincoln postoffice, $300,000, being an In crease from $227,000; for new building at Hastings. $125, oBt), the site having been purchased by an appropriation made by the Fifty-sixth congress; for a new building at Norfolk, $100,000, the site having been pur chased. t Iowa probably fares more liberally than any other state, the following provisions being made: To complete the postoffice at Burlington, $20,000; Oskaloosa, an Increase of $4,000 for the completion of the building at l hat place; Centerville. $35,000; Atlantic, $30,000; Marshalltown, $85,000; Waterloo, $150,000; Boone, $100,000; Iowa City, $60,000; for Des Moines $123,000 Is appropriated for the purchase of the entire block of ground. After the purchase Is mado the secretary of the treasury is Instructed to Inform con gress as to the style of building which Is best suited to the capital of the state and the cost of the same. For Ottumwa $65,000 is appropriated for the purchase of addi tional ground. Sonth Dakota Fares Well. South Dakota Is especially well taken care of. Aberdeen Is given a $73,000 In crease over previous appropriations; DeaJ wood gets $200,000, while $5,000 Is appro prited for the purchase of a site at Tlerre. Representative Burkett was enthusiastic over the treatment accorded him by the committee and said the amount, would give Lincoln a building such as Nebraska's cap Itol should have. Senator Dietrich, speaking of the amount given Hastings, ssid It was none too large. as his home city was growing rapidly, and Its railroad Interests wsrranted a building commensurate with Us Importance. Senators Dietrich and Millard Joined today in nominating C. W. BarneB, editor of the McCook Republican, for receiver of the land omce at McCook. vice J. A. Piper, whose term expires May 6. There were only two candidates for the place, Barnes and Piper, but Barnes had the backing of tne state committee and the visit of Chair man Lindsay to Washington this week Is believed to have clinched the matter. While this, of course, is In Senator Dietrich's territory, Senator Millard Joined In the recommendation, according to an agree ment when the senators entered upon their terms that they would Join In federal appointments. Senator Dietrich recommended the ap pointment of Taylor McCullough for post master at Elsie, Neb., vice W. F. Howe, resigned. Lyman Richardson of Omaha, who has been spending a portion of the winter In the east, la In Washington, enroute to Nebraska. Senator Dietrich Introduced an amend ment today to his Cuban rebate bill provid ing tnat Cuba should grant us a coaling station or stations In addition to other fea tures of the measure. This amendment the senator thought necessary In order to al lay criticisms that the measure he Intro duced in behalf of Cuba earlier In the week was not constitutional. J. O. Pratt, formerly of Cheyenne, Wyo., but now a resident of Honolulu, Is In Washington for the purpose of getting con gress to appropriate $2,000,000 to Hawaii for the purpose of recompensing the na tives and others who had their property destroyed during the bubonic plague. I rate Laud Leasing Bill. The representatives of the cattle Inter ests. h?adcd by Bartlett Richards of Ells worth, who are here for the purpose of arousing Interest and Inciting legislation looking to the leasing of the public domain appeared before the subcommittee of the senate committee on public lands this morning. Senator Gamble being chairman or the subcommittee. Mr. Richards, who Is probably one of the largest cattle grow ers In the United States, made the princi pal address to the committee. He stated that the immediate removal of fences by the government, as contemplated by the secretary of the Interior, would cause a financial panic and bring ruin to countless homemakers of the arid west. He urged upon the committee a land-leasing bill safeguarding the Interests of the aovern ment that would relieve the present sit uatlon, protecting forage and restore the range's departing vigor. Such a bill, be said, would Invite settlement and enter prise, serve the material interests of the whole nation and substitute law for law lessness. He said Senator Millard's bill was fa vored by tho cattle growers of the west, but any measure that would permit the rattle growers to lease the lands included In the arid and seml-arld west would be acceptable to them. He said that 10,000,. 000 acres were under fence In Nebraska, notwithstanding the law of 18S5, which has never been generally enforced, and he pre sented a petition of 2.0o0 men residing In Nebraska west of the 100th meridian In favor of the land-leasing measure. eareaatlon of Irrlsiable Lands. At a conference between the delegation of cattlemen and senators and representa tives from Nebraska held Thursday night at the Ebbltt It was suggested that the ir rigable land of Nebraska be set aside from non-Irrigable or arid land, which should be leased at some fixed price under proper regulations of the Interior department. It was shown that there were 10,000,000 acres of public domain In Nebraska, a very great portion of which Is non-irrigable, but which yields a grass upon which cattle thrive. The Nebraska delegation in congress ex pressed themselves In favor of restricting the number of acres of land that shall be leased to any one Individual, so that It would In no wise interfere with Intending homesteaders and settlers. Representatives of the Cattle Growers' association said they saw no objection to such a measure and recognized the necessity of having some prompt action taken In view of the recent order of the secretary of the lnetrlor to re move the fences. Mr. Richards and his party will meet the senators and members of the lower house from Nebraska tomorrow afternoon In Senator Millard's committee room to review the situation and decide upon a future plan of action.

PENSION BILL DAY IN HOUSE Wlflovrs of General William Lndlow and "Parson" Dronnlaw Among; the Reneflelnrlee. WASHINGTON, April 26. The house to day passed 143 private pension bills, in cluding bills to pension the widow of the late General William Ludlow at $50 a month and the widow of the late "Parson" Brownlow of Tennessee at $30 per month. The remainder of the day was devoted to general debate on the agricultural appro priation bill. Mr. Lessler of New York discussed the necessity of a new postoffice at New York, Mr. Cochran of Missouri the trust question and H. C. Smith of Michi gan "good roads." The conference report on the Chinese ex clusion bill (a disagreement) was made by Mr. Hltt of Illinois. The bouse inslsed upon its disagreement and the bill was sent back to conference, the same conferees be ing appointed. The house then resumed general debate on the agricultural appropriation bill. Mr. Cochran of Missouri made a speech on the spread of trusts and combines in this coun try and the necessity of curbing them. He declared that corporation lobbies were re publican In republican states and demo cratic In democratic states and that al though publlo sentiment demanded legisla tion It could not be obtained. The trusts, he said, contributed to both parties and tied tbelr bands. It was time for someone to speak the truth and he warned the American people that no relief could be hoped for until there was a com plete divorcement of legislatures and con gress from corporation lobbies and Influ ences. The point had been reaehed, he said, where the attorney general and even a member of the aupreme court had been taken from the employ of great corpora, tions. Mr. Cochran said It was a matter of pub 11c notoriety that in some states senator ships were bought and aold just as pro duce was bought and sold In the public market. 'Does anyone doubt," be asked, "that one state (Delaware) is now without sen- torial representation because a bargain cannot be struck on the senatorshlp?" W. R. HEARST FOR PRESIDENT Salts W. B. Vioshn, Former Mayor of Council Bluffs, and Justice Party Founder. WASHINGTON, April 28. W. R. Vaughn, the founder of the new justice party, which bea.s his name, said today: The party has come to stay. Justice will be our slogan for all men or women, be they white, black, yellow or red. We are not worklnar in the Interest of anv narttcu lar political candidate; we are playing no favorites, w e snail select as our standard bearer the man who comes nearest to repre renting our ideals and the principles enunc iated in our platform. Personally, however, I am Inclined very tnucn toward William R. Hearst. If the republicans wish to win votes in the south they cannot do better than to nominate Roosevelt. He la half southern and the people like his dauntless courage. CONFEDERATES LEAVE CAMP Veterans of niale Close Their Annual Reunion with Cannon and Taps. DALLAS, Tex.. April 23. The twelfth annual reunion of the United Confederate Veterans ended this evening. The boom of a cannon and the sounding of taps by the buglers and camp Albert Sidney Johnston was no more. The last delegations of vet erans died out of the fair grounds and workmen began striking down the tents The Sons of Veterans' convention, like the one held by the older men, adjourned after a short session devoted to passing resolu ttons of thanks. When the last session of the United Con federate Veterans' convention was called to order today a resolution by Commander In Chief John D. Gordon, "a loving fare well," was adopted with cheers. General Gordon said In response: "Comrades: I have been touched many times and every year this old confederate heart grows more tender and loving as the end approaches. When the end comes want your hands to bury me and on my tomb I would have written: 'Here lies confederste.' " At the csmp todsy a feast unique In the history of reunions was prepared, at but faloes having been slaughtered for a bar beeue. Worthy of t'!4r ration. An editor's opinion la alwsys worthy of consideration, for he Is accustomed to glv leg a rustler due considerstlon before ex pressing his Ideas of It. David R.

Chamber Iain's Cough Remedy I can particularly endorse, having used It myself quits fre quently with the bst results, whenever bothered with a cold." . Marriage Licenses.

Even though the city couueii has finally organised it appears that the contest cases are not all over and It may be that the political complexion of the body may yet be changed. As slready mentioned Barney Luckey of the Third ward is contesting Mike Smith's seat. Now comes Rasmus Larson of the Second wa.'d with a propo sition to contest the right of Myles Welsh. Copenharve is contesting in the Fifth and It was reported last night that Vansant of the Sixth would ask for a recount. The right of contest la not, however, to be confined to the candidates for council. John J. Lark In gave It out yesterday that he would ask the court for a recount. Lar kin was defeated by Dana Morrill of Al bright by a good vote. It Is alleged, how ever, that If some alleged irregularities can be rroved, the second precinct of the Fourth ward may be thrown out entirely, and this may result In several changes. As Treasurer Howe now has possession of the office and the city funds he Is not at all worried about the contest of Mr. Hoc tor. In speaking of this matter yesterday Mr. Howe said that he had been elected reasurer and as he had qualified and given a bond, he did not propose to give up. "I will," he said, take the matter to the su- rem9 court If necessary." Storm Causes Damaste. The storm of yesterday afternoon and ast evening caused damage to property 11 over the city. Windows almost without number were blown In and quite a num ber of awnings were torn from their fasten ings and carried away by the high wind. As the storm Increased toward nightfall business was practically suspended and the streets were deaerted. Entertainments billed for the evening were abandoned and everyone who could remained indoors. Tele graph and telephone service was greatly Interfered with the wires becoming crossed and the electric light company was put to considerable inconvenience on account of the swinging of wires. No accidents of any moment were reported to the police. Ailrfted Incendiaries Fined. After the burning of the Fourth ward fire hall the police arrested Dan Lucey and Mike Maloney and held them as suspicious characters. These men were seen about the fire hall on the night of the fire and both were present when the alarm was given. Although Chief Brlggs felt confi dent of convicting the men of arson at the start, he found that If such a deed was performed no witnesses were present. He therefore filed a complaint charging Lucey with carrying concealed weapons and for this the judge fined him $10 and costs. Maloney was charged with malicious de struction of property and drew thirty days n the county jail. No settlement has as yet been made between the city and the Insurance company. Koutsky Opens Headquarters. While Mayor Koutsky has practically opened offices In the Masonic block, he is still and will for several days to come be . engaged at the treasurer's office in closing up the books of school dUtrlct No. The data which It Is necessary to com pile makes quite a lengthy report and this must be submitted to the Board of Educa tion before Treasurer Howe can assume the duties which naturally fall upon the city treaaurer. The Board of Education allows no compensation for the work of keeping Its books, handling Its warrants or giving a aurety bond, but under the law the city treasurer must perform these extra duties. Mr. Koutsky expects to have his report ready before the board meets to organlxe on May 6. Funds Transferred. The official transfer of funds belonging to the city from former Treasurer Koutsky to his successor, Edward L. Howe, occurred yesterday noon. The outgoing and Incoming treasurers proceeded, with a amall party of friends, to the three na tional bsnks In the city, where the money was counted out In cash and turned over to Mr. Howe. As has been the custom In the past, when the money was turned over to the treasurer he merely opened an ac count as city treasurer, leaving the funds In the banks designated as city deposi tories. Mr. Koutsky turned over to Mr. Howe $41,127.71. This amount includes city money only, as the Board of Education has not as yet designated a depository for the school fund. Pending such action on the part of the Board of Education the school money will remain In the Packers' Na tional bank. It Is understood that Treasurer Howe will follow his predecessors and deposit money In all of the banks here. Manlo City Gossip. Mrs. H. L. Dennis left yesterday for California.

The report pub lished In rarlo that President Stejn of the Orange Free State Is coming to Europe to consult with Mr. Kruger, Is entirely without foundstlon. On the other hand it Is true that the Boer agents In America are renewing their entreties that Mr. Kruger visit the United States next June. He probably will comply with these re quests if sufficient pressure Is exercised, although he has often personally expressed his dislike of this plan. Amusements SAHDS HAVE KID HEY ....Sydney Brough ....William l.ewers Arthur Harry (IcorKP Irvlr.rf .Frederick Spencer ..Joseph Francoeur ..Charles Martin At the Boyd "Quality Street." a comedy In four acts by J. M. Barrle. Produced for tho first time In Omaha at lioyd's theater Friday night by Maude Adams and her company.

Such crudities as marked "When a Man's Single," for example, have disappeared, the development of the master, through his Thrums biographies, to the place which is now undoubtedly his by right Is most forcibly borne in on those who hare proceeded along that way with him. His pathos Is still his own, as Is his humor, and nowhere do smllea and tears follow with such facility, flow with such ease or shine with such sparkle as do those of Barrie. Qualntnets of conceit, subtlety of expreaglcn and charm of conveyance are all his. in "Quality Street" he has given his genius unrestricted sway and a perfect story Is told In a well-night perfect way. Those who laughed when Tammas Haggart be came a humorist, who alternately roared and sighed wiih Gavin Diabart and Lady Barbara, who enjoyed the mature eccen tricities of Thomas Sandys before he was lgnominlously sent to the herding, and who owned to a relief of no uncertain degree when hie career as a popular author came to a sudden and Inglorious end by means none but a genius would adopt, thank Bar rie for a new delight and gladly place "Quality Street" on the pedestal "Tommy and Grizel" were to have occupied. The story Is an old one. Love in a maid en's heart. Indecision In a man s. Separa tion, and that which comes with passing years. Phebe of the Ringlets becomes Phebe of the Tired Eyes, and the dashing Mr. Brown has won his commission by gal lant deeds and paid for It with an arm and gray hairs. Her heart mourns a youth It never had. His awakens to the tact that he loves the woman and not the maid. In the unfolding of what la patent comes tho beauties of the Barrie genius. Its quiet humor, its simple pathos and Its powerful but homely lesson are so put as to fairly enrapture the lover of good literature. And what a charming celebrant of his theme the gifted author has In the no less gifted actrese. Miss Adams' last appear ance here was as the hoydenlsh, madcap gypsy girl, from whose blood no amount of seminary training could eliminate the wlld ness of her nature, but who found In the crucible of love the touchstone which trans muted her from a veritable pixy into the capable and appropriate helpmeet for an Auld Llcht Presbyterian minister. In "Quality Street" her buoyant youth Is sunk beneath a wave of adversity, but years of patient toll find her longing for what she had been denied. Only a little brief ex perience is needed to show her how empty are the joys she pines for, bow "like Dead sea fruits, that tempt the eye and turn to ashes on the lips." From the middle of the second act to the end of the play her Phebe Throssle la made one of the mo, delightful of comedy parts. It is the charm of her exquisite acting that wins for her the enthusiastic endorsement of her audience. She Interprets the idea of the author and gives the life of warm flesh and blood to the heroine he has conceived in his mind. Miss Adams Is surrounded by players who are as conscientious and as painstaking a she herself. Not one In the cast Is weak each fitting well Into the part assigned and all contributing to a most meritorious whole. Not the least pleasing feature of the production la the fidelity to detail and the care taken to preserve the verities In the staging of the piece. Another pleasing thing was the warmth of the large audience which was present at the Boyd laat night. It la seldom the ap proval of Omaha people Is so generously expressed.

In writing of her case she says: "I consider Tlne of Cardui better than doctors' prescriptions or any other remedy tor female trouble. I have tried many, both la this country and abroad, having been a sufferer eleven yean, and nothing cured me unt'l I used your remedy. I had such ex cruciating pains at times that I wanted to die, and indeed a life of suffering is not allur ing to anyone. Your splendid medicine stengthened my nerves, restored my appetite and built up the entire system and I now enjoy perfect health." Madam Marliani was right when she said a life of suffering was not alluring to anyone. After suffering eleven years she was surely fortunate to secure a remedy that would restore her to health. She could not get it from doctors although she went abroad searching for relief.

She writes: I have been sick for nine years and was not able to do my housework for over five years. Since I have been using your rcme dies I have been able to work. I have only used three bottles of Tine of Cardui and a package of Thedford's Black-Draught. I can do almost as much work now as I ever did, I cannot say enough about your medi cine. I will come to the fact I am feeling almost young again."

You can begin the treatment today in the privacy of your home. The chance for the better will begin within a week. The Wine strengthens the weakest link first.
