Colonel Joh S, Wo by, special
agent of the United States land
ctffioa, had aa extended conference
with United States District Attorney
Bummers yesterday regarding; the illegal
fencing of government land In the state
of Nebraska. Just before the conference
deputy United S Late marshal served
upon him a summons t appear before the
grand Jury December 1.
After tbe conferenoe Colonel Moaby talked
to the i-epoitert Is regard to tbe wot
which be has been dais; la the srtaia, "I
e by a published interview that Special
Agent Leaser Bays that I am to old for
this sort of work that I live ln the past.
I chink that h ahould ha the last man to
make suck a complaint, for alnos I hare
been ln Nebraska 1 hare started to tear
down tbe Illegal fences; - have unearthed
the wholesale illegal omries of land . and
have had him bounood. -The cat tie me a lae
seem ts think that I lire in the present.
As a matter of fact I am t years old and
believe that I am fu'.ly able ta perform the
duty to which I have been aaatgned. I
knew what that duty la.
"1 was la Omaha some month ago, and
at that time wa the guest of Senator Mil
lard at lunrheoa at the bank. The presi
dent of the Standard Cattle company wa
J there. On that visit J had a confer
ence with Senator Millard oe the subvert
of the illegal fences and told him that I
waa going ts have tbe a tcm drwa. He
wanted the fence to remain and deaired
that the law under which I was working
should be suspended. I told him that the
only way ln which the law could be sus
pended so far as I waa concerned was ts
have me removed from tbe state.
4Vte Buy la K'aaktaugto.
H tbea had a telegram prepared ask
ing the commissioner of the land office ts
call m ta Washington, Baying that such
osurae would be agreeable to me. It
certainly was agreeable, for la the short
time I hare bees in Washing-tea I bara
done snore t bring dowa the fence thaa
I could have don la a's month If I had
hot made the trip. Letter are pigeon
holed, but I had opportunity t enaverae
with the officials. I saw the osnrmisaioaer
of tbe land office, the secretary of tba in
terior and finally the president aent for
me, I tcld him the altuauoa and Mr.
Booaeaalt said; Those fence must coma
owa or there will be tretrbl ' I
waa taatnu-ted ta retora to the stata and
carry out the order of the department.
"Ia Chicago J was Interviewed and the
new pipers said that I severely ertUdaed
the oourae of Senatei-a Millard and Delt

never oeea Senator Deltrirh and havs not
criticised aayona. What I did aay waa that

cartlcmea rrtrneting them ts remove the j
fences, as made by Inspector Leaser,
Colonel Mosby said: I
"There Is nothing difficult about such j
a notice and they do not hsve to be long
and intricate, with such a notice as I
have already served upon Bartlett Rich
ard I have removed all Illegal fence la
Colorado. Out there I met with Indiffer

attorney, but a way was found to interest
him and he became more zealous thaa I
"Do yon think the fences will be re
"I do if there Is csvalry enough in the
United State. I don't know when this ex
treme measure will be taken, but Mr.
Roosevelt seem to be determined. Tbe
department allows a notice of sixty days
"I want it understood that I am making
ne war npoa tbe widows who have made
these entries for a consideration. They al
ready have their money from the cattle
men, and 1' is tbe cattle men I am oppos
ing. They claim that tbe fences cannot be
removed until homestead entries, made in
bad faith, bare beea cancelled. It take,
two years or more to cancel a homestead
entry and at the end of that time another
can be made, as that the cattle men wiU
have practically ownership of the land by
and endless chain of bogus ; entries. It
used ts be that a homestead entry could
not be held up without a special report ia
each case. My shewing has beea such that
hundreds of entries nave been held up
without any investigation, something that
has never before been known. Tbe penalty
for illegal fencing is a fine of 11.000 and
twelve months ia jail."

BARNUM LEAVES THE ROAD
Reslsros Pasitls with I aiaa Patriae
to Aeeept Oae with Soothers
The report that M. K. Barsum had re
signed as master mechanic of the Nebraska
division of the Union Pacific as published
in The Bee yesterday afternoon, was con
firmed last night by Mr. Barnum, who,
when asked if the report was true, said:
"Tea, it ia I have resigned, to take
effect December 10. I go to the Southern
railway, headquarter at Washington, D.
C. as assistant superintendent of motive
power under Samuel Higgina. I will aa
sums the duties of my new posltioa De
Mr. Barnum waa out of the city yester
day afternoon and did not return until
evening, so that tbe report at the time it
was published in The Bea could not be
confirmed, as was tbea stated. Officials
at headquarters professed ignorance of any
such action or intention on Mr. Barnum'.
Mr. Barnum ha. beea in the employ of
tbe Union Pacific twelve year. His first
posltioa was at Cheyenne as superintend
ent of tbe shop. He was then transferred
to North Platte, where he held the posi
tion of master mechanic for seven years,
and came to Omaha four years ago a.
master mechanic of the Nebraska division,
succeeding J. H. Manning. Mr. Barnum
enjoys an enviable reputation in his line
of work and baa alway been held la highest
esteem by those with whom he was asao
ciated. Samuel Higgina, whose asiistant Mr.
Barnum becomes oa the Southern railway,
was until recently superintendent of mo
tive power on the Union Pacific He left
about th time the present strike began
and wa cucoeeded by W. B- McKeen.
Who will be Mr. Barnum'. successor is
not now known outside of official circles.
Matt Wilkina, master mechanic of tbe
shop at Grand Island, has beea spoke of
as a possible candidate, but officials who
are ln a position to know refuse to discuss
this phase, Mr. Wilkin, it is said, ha.
brought tbe capacity of the Grand Island
shops up 21 per cent with the normal
force and he 1 said to stand Tory high
with the headquarters men.

GircuntrUooes Earroiuidiiig Death
Kichael Bhisldi Being Investigated.
THERE ARE INDICATIONS OF SUICIDE
Oar. aer Ditwwvers that Heavy Ismalo-
tioa of Death DeaJiag Wires Bad
Bee lerasel OsT, Evtdeatly
with Shields Katie.
Investigations made yesterday afternoon
and last night by Coroner Bralley into the
sudden death of Michael Shield, point,
more to suicide than to an accidental
death. At first is was supposed that Shields
hsd gone to the convenor at tbe top of
tbe hog bouse tor the purpose of adjusting
aome wires, and that by accident be
touched live wires and wa electrocuted.
As all of tbe wires entering this convenor
are heavily insulated it looked rather pe
culiar that aa accident should happen.
When the coroner went over the Armour
plant to investigate he found conditions
which give rise to tbe suicide theory. Two
heavily charged wires were found to have
had tbe insulation scraped off, close to the
point where the wires eater the convenor,
la looking through tbe effects of Shields
a heavy Jack knife wa found ia one of hi
pockets. On tbe largest blade there wa
evidence of the blade being used to scrape
a heavily insulated wire.
It is thus presumed that Shields deliber
ately crossed tbe bridge between tbe build
ings and scraped the lnauiaaon from the
wires and then grasped them.
It is aaid about the plant that Shields
had beea drinking some of late and was
really net la condition ts attend to his
duties all of tbe time. Rumor also baa
it that be committed suicide because be
was not able to meet certain obligation.
Thi is denied by friends, who assert that
Ehielda will be properly taken care of and
that be ha. no debts which ahould bsve
worried him. After looking into the ease
Coroner Bralley decided that he would hold
aa Inquest. The Jury was called and there
will be a hearing at Brewer's undertaking
rooms at I o'clock this afternoon.
