(Copyright. 1902. by Tress PubliFhlng Co.)
PARIS, Nov. 15. (New York World Ca
blegramSpecial Telegram.) Mrs. Violet
Falconer's suit against Rrdfern, the widely
known dressmaker of Paris, London and
New York, for $.'1,000 damages and other
redress for false arrest and Imprisonment,
has exflted the deepest Interest in the
American colony In Paris.
Mrs. Falconer, a young American, was
arrested at Cherbourg last July as she was
about to go aboard a steamer bound for
New York, on complaint of Redfern. who
charged her with taking her trunk away
from the Hotel Chalham, after thoy bad
been seized at his suit as security for a
bill of $340. Mrs. Falconer had never ac
cepted the dresses because they did not fit.
Despite the protestations, she was not al
lowed to go aboard the steamer, but was
taken to Parts and placed In St. Lazare
prison, where the majority of the prison
ers are women of low character, and was
kept In Jail five daya before she was In
terrogated by a magistrate. After Red
fern, somewhat late In the day, withdrew
the charge, she was released on $400 ball.
Two daya later her ball was refunded and
she was Informed that no further proceed
ings would be taken.
Mrs. Falconer afterward entered suit
against Redfern for $3,000 and publication
of the Judgment, In the case In fifteen
newspapers of her choice. She engaged
as counsel Maltre Frederic Attain, an Eng
lish speaking barrister, known to Ameri
cana aa the lawyer who defended Clara
Ward In her legal difference with the
nrlnce of Chlmay. Redfern's defense was
that Mra. Falconer committed an offense
under the French criminal law In removing
from the Rotel Chalham trunks which had
been seized, and which she had no right to
touch. Mrs. Falconer explained that, being
Ignorant of the French law, she consid
ered that as long as she left her trunks
In Paris she was not transgresaiug the
statutes, and that they were only taken
two blocks from the hotel, to be stored
with the Messrs. Cook.

There Is a well defined theory that when
the smoke of battle baa cleared away, Union
Pacific control will have changed hands,
or at least the Harrlman management will
have 'been deposed. The Harrlman policy
of holding animated controversy with em
ployee over the matter of wages has created
much of the unrest among railroad labor
and has displeased other railroad Interests.
The Harrlman policy, to 'he surprise of
the railroad world, antagonized the St. Paul
a Standard Oil property In the latter's
effort to get. through aervice with the Union
Pacific, to the point at which the St. Paul
was forced to threaten a competitive al
liance with the Missouri Pacific and other
Oould lines. The Harrlman policy drove
President Hayes of the Southern Pacific
to resign. The Harrlman policy has led
to friction over t raffle arrangements at
various points. George Gould is said to be
at outs with Mr. Harrlman, notwithstand
ing the two are on tbe Colorado Fuel proxy

Harrlman and Kuhn Loeb ft Co., to wrest
tbe Northern Pacific control from the Morgan-Hill

The transportation features, service and

(From n SUIT Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 13. (Special Tele
gram.) Colonel John S. Mosby, special
gent of the general land office, who haa
been In Wanhlngton over a month confer-
Ing with the president. Secretary Hitch
cock and Commissioner Binger Hermann re
garding Illegal fencing ot the public domain
In Nebraska, will return to Alliance, Neb.,
ext week. When Colonel Mosby was sum
moned to Wanhlngton a month ago It va
generally supposed In Nebraska that he
was at least to be severely eeneured by the
secretary of the interior because of his per-
Istenl efforts to secure the removal of
fences which he deemed Illegally enclosing
the public domain. At least thla was tho
mpreseion current In Alliance and around
about. Colouel Mosby has not been re
moved, however, nor even censured, but,
on tho contrary, his course has met the
hearty approval of President Roosevelt
nd Secretary Hitchcock and he is, to re
turn to Nebraska with hla arms strength-
ncd for a further campaign against those
who occupy the public land illegally.
Soon after his arrival here President
Roosevelt sent for him to explain certain
things In relation to the removal of fences.
During his visit to the White House Colonel
Mosby laid before the executive all the
facte in his possession. At the conclusion
of the Interview tbe president assured
Colonel Mcsby that his course In the mat
ter met with his hearty approval and that
he was convinced that the fences com
plained of must come down and stay down.
The law which prohibits the fencing ct
public land was passed by congress just
prior to the Inauguration of President
Cleveland in 1S85 and has been practically
dead letter on the statute books for
years, with the result that millions of acres
ot public land Is now enclosed by fences
erected by cattlemen to the detriment of
agriculturalists or homesteaders.
Meets with Obstruction.
When Colonel Mosby was appointed by
President McKlnley this great problem
confronted him and hla every move look-
ng to the removal ot these fences met
with obstructions at every hand. The
Taw Vas'upon tbe statute books and he wss
Instructed to see that It was administered
to the letter. ' He started In Colorado, and
something over a year ago completed his
work In that state, obtaining strict con
formity to law, all Illegal fences being
removed. He was next sent Into Ne
braska, and after nearly a year of .work
baa matters so in hand, according to bis
statement, that It It only a matter of a few
months until the reign of fenced acres
will be a thing of the past. ColOnel Mosby
has had opposition from congressional rep
resentatives of Nebraska in his efforts to
execute the laws. He has also been con
fronted with the apathy of( the United
States district attorney for . Nebraska,
without whose co-operation his hands were
practically tied, and in addition to that
Special Agent Lesser, whose headquarters
were at North Platte, Neb., seemed very
loth to countenance any move which might
embarrasa tbe cattlemen.
Suits to Be Brought.
Tbe appeal of Senators Millard and Diet
rich to the president and Secretary Hitch
cock to hold up action has been unavail
ing. Attorney General Knox bas Issued
positive instructions to District Attorney
W. S. Summers at Omaha to bring civil
suits against cattlemen charged with Ille
gal maintenance ot fences, snd Special
Agent W. R. Lesser bas been suspended
by the general land office and In all prob
ability will be dismissed from that service.
On November T, .Colonel Mosby addressed
letter to Commissioner Hermann, In
which he suggested that the Department
ot Justice be requested to instruct tbe
United States attorney for Nebraska to in-
stitute civil suite tor the removal of fences
In all cases where affidavit had been filed
with him by citizens complaining ot fences.
I have sent many such complaints to
the district attorney at Omaha." said
Colonel Mosby, "but he has taken no ac
tion. Unless he does, the fences will stand
and the statute Is a dead letter. If he
would only make a move in one case, all
who have received notice to remove their
fence would remove them Immediately
without waiting for a decree of the court
to compel them."
This letter was formally sent to the at
torney general with Colonel Moaby's report.
with. the result that Instructions were at
once Issued to District Attorney Summers
to proceed at once.
Call Widows Into Court.
Specific Instructions have been Issued to
the district attorney to summon a number
of alleged soldiers' widows who It Is
charged have made false affidavits covering
land entries in the Alliance land district
One of these widows' Mrs. Carrie L. Carrl-
gan, at present residing in Clarlnda, Is.,
but whose home Is In Blair, Neb., has writ
ten a letter to the commissioner of the
general land office giving an acrouut of the
proceedings when fifty widows went
before Fred Hoyt, United States commis
sioner, to swear for homestead entry. She
says in her letter that tbe women did not
read the paper they were to swear to,
which was an application for a homestead.
Although these widows made oath that
these entries were not for the benefit of
anyone but themselves, yet she says they
were subsequently required to sign leases
for somebody else's benefit, but for whose
particular benefit she does not know. By a
strange coincidence, however, all entries
made on the particular occasion referred
to are In a straight line running from the
Burlington road to the Elkhorn In Sheri
dan county and the fence of Bartlett Rich
ards, the cattle king, happens to be located
on these entries. The district attorney has

Nebraska 'Varsity Sustains Ita Reputation
in Game with Knox.

Nothing Like Fast Foot Ball Possible or

KNOX UNABLE TO STOP LINE PLUNGES
.Nebraska Advances Ball a Total of
220 Yards, While the Best tha
llllunlsaaa Could Do Was
(From a Stan Correspondent. t
LINCOLN. Nov. 15. (Special Telegram.)
Before an assemblage of S.OOO rain
soaked gridiron enthusiasts today Nebraska
university's unbeaten eleven vanquished
the strong Knox college team, scoring
seven points and maintaining the princi
ple that their own goal lino is forbidden
territory on which opponents must tint lt.
truile. P)oth teams floundered about In
mud. which reached almost to the p'&yeiw'
ankles. The mire prevented any sem
blance of fast play, but Nchraskn's su
perior prowess was conclusively proven by
the fact that tbe Cornhuskers advanced the
ball 220 yards In scrimmage play, while
the best Knox could do was forty-four
yards. Knox had to iU credit victories
over, Notre Damn and Northweatern bv
dcclHive scores, and Nebraska's achieve
ment of today, along with previous vic
tories over Minnesota and other strong
teams, establishes the prestige of the Corn
huskers aa belonging In tho front rsnk In
colleglato tool ball circles of the middle
The Knox line had a slight advantage In
weight over their adversaries, but this
wss moro than counterbalanced by the ex
cess of avoirdupois of the Cornhuskers'
backs. Tbe inability ot Knox to stop Ne
braska's favorite formation, a revolving
mane on tackle with one of the halfbacks
carrying the ball, tells succinctly the story
of the Galcsburg team's defeat. Occasion
ally the Knox forwards charged effectively
and forced the Cornhuskers to punt, but
Nebraska's defense In turn held firm and
forced Knox almost Immediately to kick
and surrender the oval. A long punt by
Benedict early In the first halt was fum
bled by Zalusky near his own goal line.
Cortelyou, by a spectacular tackle, carried
Zealusky over the Knox goal, scoring a
safety and giving Nebraska two points.
Start Lino Plunging.
. After the first klckoff Nebraska Inaugu
rated a series of line and tackle plunges,
which did not end until seventy yards bad
been negotiated, and Bender was shoved
for a touchdown. Ringer missed the goul.
The half ended with the ball on Knox's -five-yard
line, but in Nebraska's possession,
snd the backs charging along for steady
The second halt as almost as uneven ss
the first. On a solitary spurt Knox scored
gains totaling thirty yarda, but Nebraska's
defense stiffened and took the ball on
downs. Twice thereafter Booth's proteges
were within Knox's ten-yard line and gain
ing steadily, but surrendered (he ball bo-
cause or penalties tor noiaing. two
minutes before the final whistle the Gales-
Jturg aggregation braced and by a display
of Spartan spirit captured tho ball on
downs, when tbe Cornhuskers bad but two
yards to go for another touchdown.
Nebraska did not push its protest against
Hopkins and Martin, two ot the Knox play
ers. Knox Insisted that both were eleglble
and Nebraska entered no further objections.
The Thanksgiving day game with North
western university in Lincoln concludes
Nebraska's schedule. Coach Booth now
predicts that his pupils will go through the
season without a defeat and without per
mitting anyone to score. The lineup today:
