LINCOLN, Sept. 24 (Special Tc-lpgram.)
The state of Nebraska sufler?d a loss of
fl.",000 by fir early this morning, the stables
at the hospital for the Imane In the out
skirts of the city being totally destroyed.
Six head of horses were Incinerated, a
doio-n others being saved by the asylum
attaches after the latter were nearly suffo
cated and badly scorched by their efforts.
Large stores of produce grown on the asy
lum farm were destroyed, along with Im
plements and Vehicles housed In adjoining
Fed by several hundred tons of hav the
flames leep-d high in the'alr. The asylum
waa distant about 200 yards, but most of the
patients were aroused by the din and added
to the general disorder their screams. The
patients were kept locked within tbeir
apartments and the excitement soon sub
aided. Superintendent Greene suspects Incen
diarism, as a part of a general plot to
burn the state Institutions. Within thn
last eighteen ' month the state peniten
tiary near thla city and the Norfolk In
sane asylum bave both been burned, rep
resenting a losa to the state of $500,000.
Id both cases . incendiarism was respon
sible, the circumstance pointing to a
crank. Governor Savage and the state
officials are on the scene this morning
conducting ad Investigation.
The State Board of Public Lands and
Buildings sent an architect to the asylum
this afternoon. After carefully examining
the walls and foundations he decided that
It would be useless to attempt to utilize
them In rebuilding the structure. This re
port determined the board not to attempt
to rebuild the stables. Sheds will be util
ized and the next legislature will have
the opportunity to order the rebuilding of
Olda Arrested for Marder.
Fred M. Olds, for the last six months an
Inmate of the asylum, waa arrested last
night Immediately upon hia discharge as
cured and taken to Beatrice by Sheriff
Waddlngton. The charge of being one of
the two principals In the murdering and
torturing of old Davy Jones at Wymore
five and a .half years' ago la made against
Olds. . . '
It waa from' Olds, In fact, that the first
Information fame aa to the' Identity of the
men. The detectives who Investigated the
case recently discovered, that Olds had
been thought ,f In connection with the
affair and, going to the asylum, he wormed
out of him a confession yiat he and Herrod
had committed the murder. Olds con
fessed freely, because he believed that his
Incarceration In tho . hsyjura would guar
antee him. Immunity. 4 Soon afterwards the
brain hemorrhages ' which had troubled
him ceased and he waa speedily cured.
Last evening hla confession, repeated In
the preaenae of witnesses, waa taken
down by a stenographer.' ' He now claims,
however, that Herrod Induced him to go
with him to Jones'' house on false pre
tenses and that he never went inside.
B. J. Herrod, the- man whom Olda ac
cused as the leader In the affair, reached
here today In charge of Detective Evans,
who brough.1 hlnj trepv North Dakota, with
out a requisition. Herrod declares that he
waa not In Wymore the night of the Jonea
murdef and that he can prove that he
pent the night In a town near the Kansas

He has been traveling for a photograph

alert looking man of 40, but waa very
nervous and appreciated the aeriousness
of his position.
Worm Time Anions; Woodmen.
An oratorical rough house waa precipi
tated this afternoon at the Initial
meeting of the school of Instruction of the
Modern Woodmen. Head Consul Northcutt
waa present as the guest of the local mem
ber of the directorate, Mr. Talbot, but the
addresa of welcome delivered by O. B. Polk
waa hardly of a glad character.
A big fight baa been on In the Woodmen
ranks for months over the question of re
vleion of rates. Mr. Northcutt Is the
champion of a plan that makes a material
Increase and which will bear rather hard
on the younger membera, or at least they
Mr. Polk declared that while he thought
that readjuatment was necessary, he
thought that It should .come in the matter
of salaries and not In the raising of rates
He Insisted that the order ought not to be
compelled to pay high aalaries to officials
who rode about the country advancing their
personal Interests. He said that the mem
bers of the order knew nothing whatever
of th management other than the details
printed In the official organ and these were
unjust, unfair and often misleading. If
selfishness, he Insisted, waa allowed to In
plre the officers of the order the end
would not be far away. A loaa of the
younger membera would follow readjuat
ment on the Northcutt plan.
Mr. Northcutt waa warmly defended by
membera present and. a very Interesting
debate over the various plana of readjuat

the promise of fine crowds for the balance

Superior has made to have an agricultural
chow and the success of this part of the
fair Is astonishing even the people who got
it up. Farmers are driving in from all
directions, over the muddiest of roads,
with wagons full of cereals, fruits, vege
tables, grasses, canned goods, etc., for dis
play. No cash prizes have been offered
for these displays, simply merchandise
solicited by the committee from the mer

The first of the ball games occurred this
afternoon between the Nebraska City Ar

favor of Superior.
There is an unusual number of free at

AtNSWORTH. Neb., Sept. 24. (Special
Telegram.) The first day of tho carnival
and street fair in Atnsworth was a marked
success. The v equinoctial storms closed
Monday with a heavy rain, which
threatened to continue and spoil all pros
pects of any fair attendance or give any
chance of having the races or any of the
attractions promised. But luckily the rains
ceased Monday evening and on Tuesday the
sun came out, drying up the mud and
rendering mother earth fit for every at
traction advertised. Wednesday morning
the crowds began arriving and by noon It
was estimated that fully 1,600 people were
in attendance. The music, the balloon as
cension, the races and every .attraction
came off as advertised and the people were
more th-n pleased with everything.
The last attraction of the afternoon was
a ball game between Valentine and New
port, which proved almost a shutout for
Newport, they barely getting one score to
Valentine's 14. At the close of the game
Valentine's pitcher, Webb, was badly In
jured by being run Into at the home base,
receiving a bad cut In the forehead from
the spiked shoes of the other man, which
rendered him unconscious and for a time It
was feared hla Injuries were of a serious
nature, but he later recovered sufficiently
to be taken borne to Valentine and It was
stated he would get along all right. It
Is estimated that tomorrow's attendance
will easily double that of today, if the
weather Is favorable, to which all Indica
tions point this evening.

SIDNEY. Neb., Sept. 24. (Special Tele
gram.) The second day of the street fair
and carnival brought a big crowd to
the city and all day long could be heard
the tramp of those thousands who were
visiting the different parts of the mid
way. The voice of the spieler was louder
than ever and the business that waa done
wss simply wonderful. The best of order
prevailed and the weather has been spe
cially prepared for the occasion. Tomorrow
promises to exceed in attendance the pre
vious two days. The brass bands from
North Platte and Kimball are receiving
fine compliments. The play at the opera
house last night was so well received that
by request It was repeated again tonight.
The balance of the week the opera house
rill have a vaudeville company from Den

cension failed to materialize, but to
morrow there will be two ascensions by
Prof. Broadwick and wife. The balloon
