(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Julr 14. 8peclal.) Th Im
pression has become general during the
last few day that Harry Tracy, the Ore
gon outlaw and escaped criminal, la the
Tracy who served four terms in the Ne
braska penttentlarr snd has a state-wide
reputation for lawlessness. The Oregon
Oregon desperado Is described aa a half
breed Mexican. The Nebraska, Tracy Is
known aa a half-breed Indian.' In color
nd height the descriptions of the two men
agree perfectly.
The records at the penitentiary, how
ever, disclose Information which disproves
the supposed Identification. Harry Tracy,
the murderer, was arrested In Oregon in
1899, and so far as can be learned here was
In custody until he broke out of the peni
tentiary at Salem a short time ago. The
Tracy known here waa at liberty during
the year 1899, but served time subse
quently In the Nebraska penitentiary. Thla
fact makes It certain that the Nebrsska
convict is not the man who has been mur
dering, stealing and Invading homes and
property In Oregon and Washington.
C. E. Kent of this city aaw Tracy make
his wild race In a steam launch through
Puget Bound. Mr. Kent was Ashing from
a small boat near the shore when the
team craft came along at a terrific speed.
"The boat was having a race without
competition," said he, "and was evidently
going at topmost speed. I could see five
men on the deck, one of them standing in
the bow and pointing a revolver at the
others. The boat panned not twenty yards
from us. After we got back to Seattle we
were told that Track had escaped through
the sound. He held up the crew In South
bay and forced It to take him to Seattle.
He waa not pursued through the sound,
but waa determined to make the best time
Accommodation, ta Conventions.
The excise board of this city, which has
Jurisdiction over the sale of Intoxicating
liquors. Is considering a proposition which,
If adopted, will make It possible for sa
loons to keep open after the usual closing
time whenever there are conventions or
large gatherings of people In the city. The
matter was discussed Informally this morn
ing and tomorrow will likely come up for
conelderatlon In a formal way.
The proposition Is submitted by Excise
man Woods, who would have the rules of
the board amended to provide that no sa
loon shall be open between 11:30 p. m. and
t-.SO a. m.. "unless special permission be
given by the board."
The Introduction of this amendment Is
prompted by a complaint recently filed
against the Ltndell hotel, In which It waa
alleged, aa grounds for the revocation of
the hotel's license, that the saloon In the
establishment was kept open after the le
gal closing time on the night of a conven
tion. It transpired tn the meeting this
morning that two members Of the board
personally Informed the proprietors of the
hotel that they might keep their place open
a little later than uaual on that night.
This action was entirely informal on the
part of the members of the board and la
contended by lawyers for the complainant
to. be noxesfor the proprietors' viola
tion of the board's rule.
The excise board also has under consid
eration the Question of whether or not the
municipal corporation is or can be held
liable for damages to property by reason
of the creation or existence or tne reser

to Their Old Maadla a
Soon as Possible.
NEW TORY, July 14. Among the passen
gers who srrtved today by the steamer
Pretoria from Bermuda were 10S Boer pris
oners from Bermuda. The Boers were clad
In th same suits they wore In South
Africa. ' Twenty-one of them had been of
ficers. Among the most prominent of the
officers were General J. B. Wessels, Peter
F. Steyn, a brother of President Steyn; J.
De Vllller's, late attorney general of the
Free State, and Joubert Relts, a son of the
free state secretary. Nona of the officer
would talk about the way they had been
treated by the British In Bermuda.
"We are going home as quickly as pos
sible," said General Wessels, "and if there
waa a boat going to South Africa tomor
row we would, take It. We will try to build
our burned houses and restore thlag to
their old standing. I shall Join my wife
and family at Pretoria. None of them
hajre been captured, although my sons
served all through the war and were both
wounded. We first beard of peace June
2, but very few believed it true. I fought
for twenty-one month and was captured
Just one year before my release "
The youngest member of the crowd was
12-year-old M. J. Dewet, cousin, be says,
of the general. He is accompanied by his
brother, P. S. Dewet, 21 years old. Both
boys were captured September 18, 1901,
near Klmberley, while serving under Com
mandant Jacobs. The boys hnd been ex
cited by the reports of the Boers successes
In the field and ran away from home,
serving In the field for seven months be
fore they were captured.
James L. Malloy of Boston and Michael
Halley of Nevada, American cltlsens, ar
rived with the Boers. Malloy said he had
gone to South Africa from America with a
Red Cross ambulance corps and then Joined
the Boers. After he was captured and sent
to Bermuda he made strenuous efforts to be
released,' but only succeeded in getting a
letter to United States Consul Green a
few weeks ago.
Commandant Peter Ferreira of the Orange
Free State said there are now about 4,600
Boer prisoners tn the lsjand of Bermuda.
Two hundred of these are cape rebels. As
most of them have no money for their pas
sage home they will have to wait until a
British' transport arrive. Some of the re
leased privates having complained of the
treatment accorded them. Commandant
Fcrrerla said be did not think officer or
privates had much to complain of, adding
that It waa certain that the English cared
for them better than the Boer could bav
dona for the English.

Mr, Judg McAllister write from HIT
West iZri St., Minneapolis, Minn., a
'I aufTered for years with a pnln
In th small of my back and right
aide. It interfered often with my
domestic and social duties and I
never supposed that I would be
cured, an the doctor's medicine did
not seem to help n any.
"Fortunately a me in her of our
Order advised me to try Peruna
and gave It such high praise that I
decided to try it. Although I started
in with little faith, 1 felt so much
better In a week that I felt encour
aged. "I took tt faithfully for seven
weeks and ant happy indeed to be
able to say that I am entirely cured.
Words tail to express my gratitude.
Perfect health once more Is the best
thing 1 could wlsh for, and tliunks
to Peruna I enjoy that now." Min
nie E. McAllister.
Th great popularity of Peruna a
catarrh remedy has tempted many peo
ple to Imitate Peruna. A great many so
called catarrh remedies and catarrhal
tonics are to be found tn many drug'
stores. These remedies can be procured
ty the druggist much cheaper than Pe
runa. Peruna can only be obtained at a
uniform price, and no druggist can get It
a rent cheaper. ,
Thus It is that druggist are tempted
to substitute the cheap imitation of Pe
runa for Peruna. It I don every day

necessary to eay that the Rock Island Rail
road as a whole system pay dividend, but
It la not from Nebraska business, as this
statement shows.
The great holding of this company in
Chicago make their securities a favorite
Investment, tbelr terminal n that city,
alone, aggregating many millions of dol
lars, and their double track railroad snl
great bridge give local value to this
property in Illinois, higher than most of
the roads of that State.
The net earnings per mile of the system
amounted to $2,445.98 but th foregoing fig
ures show that in Nebraska ther waa a
los of $2S3.62 per mrle in operation.
The payment therefore of a $206.45 tax
per mile wa an enforced contribution a
hardship. -.
