Joshua Wing Allen of the Congregational
faith, who preached In Michigan during
the early days, until his health failed, when
be was Induced by A. E. Touzalin, then
general manager of the B. & M. in Ne
braska, to move to Crete and edit a paper
known as the Saline County t'nlon. After
several years' successful effort In newspa
per work he was forced by continued III
health to give it up. For a' while there
after he assisted Chancellor Fairfield (who
bad also been a Michigan preacher) In
soma of the business affairs of Nebraska's
8tate university. Ho was a frequent con
tributor to The Bee and often occupied the
pulpit of the old First Congregational
church, then on Nineteenth and Chicago
streets (sines torn down). In the absence of
Father A. F. Sherrlll.
Being a minister's son, Wing Allen was
expected to turn out bad. In accordance
with the well known rule, but surprise was
great when he became a secretary of the
Toung Men's Christian association during
the days when Pierce C. Hlmebaugh of re
vered memory was asking business men of
Omaha to contribute 10 per cent of their
Income toward the erection of the building
bow standing at Sixteenth and Douglas
streets. However, blood will tell, and
Wing has gone to the bad at last. He has
become a newspaper man. He says many
a famous writer has come out of the sage
brush plains and tho Rocky mountains;
there is plenty of Inspiration there, and
be baa been trying his hand at the busi
ness. In a year he has traveled exten
sively over Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Wyom
ing, Idaho, Montana and Oregon and lins
written much about those regions which
baa been widely quoted. He Is particu
larly familiar with Idaho and Utah, and
this Is what he said about them yester
day: "Empires" of the West.
"Many western states are called by their
enthusiastic supporters 'Empires.' That
thought Is usually inspired by extent of
territory. I coined the expression much
used In the west recently, 'Idaho Is an
empire,' but know that the term fits, be
cause iaano covers as much territory aj
comprises New York, New Jersey, Massa
chusetts and New Hampshire combined,
and has the most wonderful natural scenery
and resources, developed and undeveloped,
almost sufficient to feed the entire popula
tion of the United States. There are
greater opportunities for the acquirement
at wealth and the founding of homes in
Idaho today than anywhere else In this
great land of freedom of which, also, Ida'uo,
Is the freest. Great as hava been the
strides of the state since It was admitted
Into the union July 3, 1890, with a popula
tion of 84,185, which has been increased
to 200,000, its probable population today,
the next two years bid fair to double the
advance of the whole preceding period.
In all the west, as far as agriculture Is
concerned, the one great question la water
and. Indeed, the mining industry depends
upon water about as much as agriculture.
In the valleys of the mountains, as out on
the sage brush plains, and even on the lava
and alkali deserts, almost anything from
bananas to Jack rabbits can be grown If you
ran get water on the land. In the mighty
Snaka river, the beautiful Salmon river
and their tributaries, Idaho possesses water
In abundance for the whole state. Hereto
fore the greater portion of that water has
been emptying Itself Into the sea off the
Oregon coast, but steadily, step by step,
the settlers have been learning the engi
neering art of getting water up out of the
canyons and low riverbeds onto the land
until ' at last the whole vexed question
seems to hava been solved snd hitherto
useless land Is being opened up to settle
ment 100,000 acres at a time. It warms
one'a heart to witness the resultant pros
perity. There is land to be had for the
taking, which with the acquirements of
water becomes very valuable. A friend of
mine bought a ranch on Wood river a year
ago at $16 par acre. With a little more
skill than the former owners, he managed
to Increase bis water supply so that in
six months be was offered first $45 per acre,
then $60, both of which be refused. The
best farm land In Nebraska Is probably
worth $50 per acre. There Is farm land In
Idaho worth $200 per acre.

mere witnout exaggeration or bias. While
one's life Is safe, one's business and friend
ships are endangered by too free expression
of opinion on public questions out there. I
must retain some of mine while I try to tell
undisputed facts. Utah is a most Intensely
Interesting subject, of which the end is not
yet, and some day, more than ever In tha
past, the United States is going to waka
up to tha fact and face a problem yet un
settled, as It la unequaled. Utah Is a atate
of the union. Utah Is a state of mind.
Eminent men visit the place for a brief
period and, leaving, publish their views
to the world. It Is often mere guesswork
on their part and their well-intentioned
statements mislead the public. It Is Im
possible to eliminate the religious ques
tion from any reference to the subject, but
at the outset I can say this: Leave Ogden
In the springtime, travel south for some
100 miles through the Salt Lake and Utah
Lake valleys; there Is no more Inspiring
sight In all the world than the fertile, rich
Mormon farms, with their budding crops
of grain, the finest vegetables In the land
and hardy fruits of the most luscious va
rieties. Then the mountains are green
(the summer's sun not having commenced
working overtime), while from out of every
canyon and almost every crevice God's
purest water rushes out In volumes to lave
the thirsty land. This la also true of
Cach valley north of Ogden and of several
smnllcr valleys In various parts of the
stale. Then visit the great mlnlno- -nmn
of Tark City on tho east, Bingham and
Stockton on the wes, the Tlntlc district
and the Mercur mines In tho southwest
center or the state, and 'Frisco, Copper
Gulch and Iron mountain regions In the
southern portions. These mines give em
ployment to thousands upon thousands of
men and pour out wealth In dividends each
year sufficient to give Utah the fourth
rank as a precious metal-producing state
or the union. These mines are growing
In importance each year and may ulti
mately tie tne salvation of tho state. For
the farms cannot be considerably extended
for lack of water, but there Is no limit to
the possibilities of the mines. The farms
are owned by the Mormons; tho mines are
owned by the Gentiles.
"peaks of Mormons.
"I said Utah Is a slate of . mind. A
slight prejudice, conceived through what I
had read of Mormonlsm, wore away consid
erably after I had spent a while In Salt
Lake City. The blossoming desert and the
sobered religious life of the people im
pressed me. I was told that the Mormon
church had renounced polygamy when state
hood was acquired; that it was not prac
ticed any more, and when I sought for In
stances of the Illegal relation, of which
there were many rumors. I, failed to detect
them. Further, It was said that the heads
of the church had ceased to use their In
fluence for political purposes, and that the
people, both Gentile and Mormon, had di
vided on national party lines. This ay.
peared to be the accepted view of the situa
tion a year ago In the west. Today, how
ever, through the culmination of the events
of the late campaign, tho old fight Is on
between the Gentiles and the Mormons, and
It would not be surprising if the people
divided on those lines entirely In all future

Board of Health Orders Sterilisation of
All that Barbera Use on Customers.
A special dispatch from Boston, May 5,
1900, to tha New York Bun gives as new reg
ulations of tho Boston Board of Health as
to barber shops: "Mugs, shaving brushes
and razors shall be sterilized after each
separate use therof. A separate, clean
towel shall be used for each person. Mate
rial to stop the flow of blood shell be used

Wherever Newbro's "Herplolde" Is used for

there Is no danger, as it is antiseptic and

BOY LOSES HS LEFT HAND
Raymond nine Falls from Train on
Which He Is Stealing-
Raymond Cline, a 14-year-old boy living
at 1619 Leavenworth street, fell from a
train at Boulevard avenue yesterdar after
noon at S:30 o'clock and his left hand was
cut off above the wrist by the wheels and he
was considerably bruised about the head
and shoulders in addition. Fireman J.'M.
Bual and others of a awltch crew sa tha
accident and took the injured boy to Elev
enth jmd Mason streets, where he was
taken In the police patrol wagon to Clark
son hospital. He was attended by Dr. Smith,
the Union Pacific physician, and at a lats
hour last night was reported aa resting
easily. His condition is not serious.
Young Cline, with several other boys,
was stealing a ride on a Union Pacific train
to South Omaha. At the place of the acci
dent he in some manner lost his hold and
fell between the cars. Only his hand fell
across a rail. He lay between the rails
while four or five cars passed over him.
The train was In charge of E. Gorman, en

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Subcommittee Begins the Work af Beviiiig
thi City Charter.
FIRE AND POLICE BOARD IS PROPOSED
Some Members of Committee Are . of
the Opinion that Mayor Should
Retain Control of the Two
The subcommittee of the general charter
commltte met Friday night and perfected
an organization. A. H. Murdock was chosen
chairman and J. J. Breen secretary. After
the organization the charter was taken
up and the members of the subcommittee
went through twenty-two sections. A
number of amendments In the sections
were suggested snd noted by the secretary.
When It came to the appointing of an ex
cise board the committee differed to such
an extent that proceedings were dropped
for the time and the members adjourned,
subject to the call of the chair.
While some of the members of this minor
committee favor an excise board, others
hold that the mayor should maintain con
trol of the fire and police departments, as
baa been the custom In the past. The fact
that only thirty men are employed In the
two departments made It evident that there
was no recesslty for a board of three or
five to govern this small number of men.
It Is expected that another meeting of
the committee will be held Monday even
Ing, when other matters may be taken
up. In rase those who Insist upon an ex
else board cannot agree with the others
the proposition will doubtless bo referred
to tho committee of the whole, composed
of twenty-six members.
Secretary Breen of the subcommittee said
last evening that the committee would not
be able to make a complete report to the
meeting called for Tuesday night in the
council chamber. "We will be able," said
Judge Breen, "to report progress and show
what we have done so far, but wo will not
be prepared to make a complete report."
Aa the present charter is a long one It
Is expected that many amendments will be
suggested and that it will take consider
able tlmo to frame these so as to be in
suitable form to present to the people.
Then when tjls is done will come the ques
tion of submitting the same to the legis
lature. Few of the old-time politicians appear to
be Interested In the charter Just now, as
they apparently want to see what the pres
ent committee will do before taking any
Interest Being- Paid.
For the first time In the history of the
city the local banks are paying Into the
city treasury Interest on dally balances.
Up to last night there bad been credited
to City Treasurer Howe's account the' sum
of $430.97. This amount shows that the
banks are paying the city at the rate of 2
per cent on daily balances.
In speaking of this matter Mr. Howe, tha
city treasurer, said that next year the
amount of Interest paid would be larger, as
the present year has been a ahort one, ow
ing to the fact that the new charter did
not go In force until after the commence
ment of the calendar year.
This money received from the banks will
be placed In the general fund and will help
out considerably at this time, when nearly
all of the funds are low.
' Waltlngr for Contractor.
President Bruce McCulloch of the South
Omaha Library board said last night that
be had directed Architect Kimball to pre
pare a contract for the construction of tho
library building. J. H. Welse Is to be

Mr. Welse Is In Sheridan,' Wyo.. figuring

OVERCOME BY GAS AND COLD
Checker for Srvlrt'a Narrowly Escapes
Death In told Moraae Warehouse.
Marlon Arnold, who recently entered the
employ of Swift and Company as a checker,
had a thrilling snd narrow escape from
asphyxiation in a cold storage warehouse,
paradoxical as It may seen, a few days ago.
Benumbed with cold and overcome with gas
Arnold lay upon the floor of the warehouse
unconscious when the door was opened by
sn Inspector, who, fortunately for the in
nocent prisoner, chanced to pass thst way
on his rounds.
Arnold had gone to the warehouse to
check up for his employers. He did not
lock himself Inside as has been reported,
but was Imprisoned, accidentally, by some
one from the outside, who shut the door not
knowing Arnold was within. Of course It
did not take Arnold long to realize hla pre
carious position. Enclosed within a small
area with the temperature about the freez
ing point the realization of the proximity
of death forced itself upon him.
"I was beginning to get desperate," said
Arnold, "when luckily I got my hands on
the little charcoal stove In which waa a
slight fire for the purpose of moderating
the temperature. My first Impulse was to
dump this fire out on the floor near the
door In an effort at burning my way out
of this possible death chamber. But my
scheme did not pan out as I expected. In
stead of burning a hole through the wall or
door the fire smouldered and fumes of gas
soon filled the frigid cell In which I was
rapidly meeting my doom. There was noth
ing left for me to do. I soon relapsed Into
unconsciousness nnd when I came to It
was two hours after my rescue by an in
spector who, happily, had come to Inspect
that warehouse. He works for the Leav
enworth street cold storage house."
The Inspector was horrified at the dis
covery of a man's body prostrate upon the
floor when he opened the door. Ho dragged
It out and found there was life. Arnold
was revived, as he says, two hours after
his rescue from his perilous quarters. He
was able to resume his work next day.

VICTORIA, B. C, Dec. 27. The rebellion
In Kwang SI Is causing a lamentable state
of affairs In that province, according to
mall advices rerelved from China.
Lung Chou, a walled city of Kwang SI,
was being besieged by the rebels when th
last advices were dispatched. Nsnnlng, on
the West river, was surrounded by rcH,
who sent messengers to tho governor chal
lenging him to flf.ht them sfter they had
looted a steamer sent with provisions and
money for the governor of that city.
The province Is not only suffering by rea
son of the depredations of the rebels, but
also from those of the Imperial troops, who,
when they have dispersed the Insurgents,
ravage the countryside. The "braves,"
eager for loot and an opportunity to dis
play the beads of rebels slnln In battln,
make no distinction between boxers and
peaceful Inhabitants. Crops are destroyed,
accompanied by Indiscriminate pillage and
acts of ssvagery. As a result instead of
contracting, tho sphere of tho rebellion Is
growing snd gaunt famine stalks through
Other rebel movements bsve been started
In Kansu by General Tung Fu Slang, who
defended the Chayoylng valley against tho
Russians In 1900.
General Ma has been sent against btra
with a force of Imperial troops. General
Tung Fu Slang hit 10,000 troops and large
amounts of grain and stores at N'lng Holt,
and, assisted by Prince Tuan, a proscribed
Boxer leader, has begun a movement
against Pekln In the western province. r
Another troublesome movement Is re
ported from Nanking, where Boxers sre
said to be openly proselyting the men of
North Kaing Su.
