PENSION FOR A SOUTH DAKOTA MAN
BADLY INJURED IN A ROW
J. M. Francke Severely Beaten by Fo
ltre Officer la Nebraska.
NEBRASKA CITT, June 27. (Special
Telegram.) There was a row at the Mattes
Brewing company's garden last night and
because of a general mlsunderstaLdlng one
man was badly injured.
A large crowd was attracted to the
ground by the band concert, and everything
was quiet and orderly until nearly 11
o'clock, when three young men, H. Hall,
F. Foster and J. M. Francke, who have been
here representing a Topeka nursery, began
scuffling among themselves. George
Thomas, a special policeman on duty In the
garden, came up and told them tbey woul 1
have to desist. They then began to argue
the matter with Thomas.
Francke, who was standing to one side,
came up and demanded to know what
Thomas had to do with it. Without show
ing his authority the officer pushed Francke
away and told him he wanted no interfer
ence from him. A fight ensued. In which
the officer appears to have got the worst
of It, He finally pulled a gun and struck
Francke three times on the head, knocking
him down. He then called for help and
started to take him to Jail.
When about two blocks from the garden
Francke's strength gave out and he fell to
the ground. He was then turned over to
his friends, who called a hack and had him
taken to a hotel. A physician was called
and dressed the wounds for the injured
man. He was only semi-conscious during
the night and at times he was attacked by
severe convulsions. Today he la resting
easier and it la thought that be will come
around all right.
Had the officer known that the men were
but fooling, or had they known that be was
an officer, the trouble would have been
avoided. Francke's father waa telegraphed
for and will probably bo here tonight. .
FIRE TAKES BOYS' DORMITORY
Hall at Bellevwe College
Entirely Destroyed ky
BELLEWE. Neb.. June 27. (Special.)
Flnlay hall, a three-story frame building,
sued as a boys' dormitory at the Bellevue
college, waa totally destroyed by fire this
morning. The building wss being repaired
to be ready for the reception of students
next fall, the fire being discovered by some
men who were shingling the roof. It wss
then confined to the attic, but with the
limited facilities for fighting fire, the men
were unable to extinguish the blaze. Just how
It started no one seems to know. Some of
the men had been In tbe attic, where the
blase originated. Just a short time before,
but aay they had nlether light nor matches
and spontaneous combustion or rata and
matches Is the most probable theory.
The planoa and most of the furniture
In the building were removed and Lawrle
hall, which stands near the burned struc
ture, was saved by bard work. The build
ing was insured for $8,000, and the loss Is
somewhat in excess of that figure.
Flnlay ball was one of the oldest build
ings in the college group, and was named
after Colonel Flnlay of Klttanlng. Pa., a
patron of the college.

WASHINGTON. June 27 The house today
began consideration of the contested elec
tion rase of Horton against Butler, from
the Twelfth Missouri district. In this case
the majority of the committee found that
the election esse was so tainted with fraud
as to make it Invalid and recommended

The speakers today were Messrs. Smith
of Iowa and Bartholdt of Missouri, in favor
of the majority, and Mr. Bowie of Alabama

quests for unanimous consent, for which
there is always a great demand during

denly blocked today by Mr. Moon of Ten
nessee, who told his friends that he would
object to all such requests until he wss
recogniied to ask consideration of the bill
to give the Indian Territory a territorial
form of government.
The house disagreed to the senate amend

Mr. Alexsnder of New York ssked if a
separate vote would be allowed on the
Buffalo exposition bill. Mr. Cannon replied
that he had no power to prevent a vote, and
if the aenate was in earnest in Insisting

doubt the house would be called upon to
act. He said, personally, he would oppose
the acceptance of those amendments.

Half a doien requests for unanimous

of Tennessee, who announced quietly to his
friends that as long as he was a member
of tbe bouse he intended to object to
every request for unanimous consent until
he was given recognition to move the pas

Mr. Richardson raised the question of
consideration against the case and stated,
despite the speaker's ruling, that the mo

against considering the election case In the
interest of pension legislation.

efforts to purify the ballot box are futile.
At the conclusion of Mr. Smith's remarks
it waa agreed that debate on tbe case
should continue for six hours. Mr. Bowie
of Alabama then opened In behalf of the
