Seoretary Davis of the Board of Charity

everal bills Introduced. One of these will
be to create a state parental school tit
Lincoln, the object of which Is to enlarge
tho work of the Home for the Friendless.

alties for wife desertion. An act to prevent
a county Judge from giving marriage li
censes to Imbeciles, eptlepttca and insane
persons; another bill to provide matrons

What G. A. R. Wanta.
The members of .the Grand Army of the
Republic were scouting around today to find
aome member of that organization In either
house who would father a bill 'to trevent
the desecration of the flag. Should this
bill be Introduced and passed It would
mean that no business Arm could use the i
Bag to wrap up goods. I
Three members of the Grand Army of the
Republic, all past commanders, met yea- I
terday to confer upon the appointment of a j
member of that body aa a member of the I
committee on soldiers' homes. Tho man I
these will select will be recommended to
8peaker Mockott. Captain Culver of Mil
ford, Captain Adams of Superior and Cap
tain Reese of Broken Bow made up the
Gveraor Consider Appointments.
Governor Mickey la atlll buay looking
over the Held of appointments and made
no announcement today. Pending the an
nouncement of the -adjutant general, Oen
eral Colby will hold over. The governor
expects to make the appointment to thla
place either thla week or the first of next.
There are atx candidates for the place,
Captain Holderman of York and Captain
Phelps of Holdrege being the last an
nounced. . The Kearney Induatrial school
aruuerlntendency still remains in doubt.
Deputy Food Commissioner Baasett baa
conaented to remain In office until May In

plecea comprise 160 acres. The books In
the office of the commissioner have been
carefully cheeked 'up recently and the mis
taken entrlea discovered.
Breaking; Into .Penitentiary.
Another man hat sttempted to break Into
the penitentiary. This time It Is Joseph
Bouchet from Ktya Paha county, under
Indictment for murder. He came to Lin
coln thla morning with a letter supposed
to be from the sheriff -of his county, rec
ommending him to the warden of the peni
tentiary. He at once went fo the prison
. and gave himself up to the garden and de
sired to be locked Up. Bouchet waa sen
tenced to serve seven years, but feuding
ad appeal to the supreme court waa out
under bond. After the transcript had been
made hla attorney advised him to drop the
proceedings and begin his sentence. As
he waa not armed with the necessary com
mitment papers, Bouchet will be held aa a
guest at the prison until these arrive.
Because the state's attorney failed to
show the value of a horse which Joseph
Keller of Cheyenne county waa convicted of
stealing, Keller's attorneys applied to
Judge' Holmes thla morning to release
Keller on a writ of habeas corpus.
Attorney for Keller, Mr. Bergo, urged
that the supreme court had tield that such
an omission la fatal when coupled with the
fact that the Information did not fix the
value either. The rase waa one brought
under a geueral statute making hcrse steal
ing a felony. The atate Inalsted that ha
beaa corpus was not the proper remedy,
and that the defendant having failed to
appeal to the supreme court was bound,
the court having once secured Jurisdiction
over him. Mr. Berge contends that the
Information and verd'et being Irregular,
the court never had Jurisdiction aud that
hla conviction and sentence therefore were
Judge Holmes took the matter under ad
visement. Omaha ronrtet Dies. '

, - May Raise BloeTtade.
, ROME, Jan. 12. Negotiations between the
co-onerating powers relative to raising the
blockade of the Venezuelan coast are pro
ceeding, the main point being the question
of guaranties for the payment of claims
should the warships be withdrawn.
The Italian Foreign office recognizes iht
correctness of the contention in Secretary
Hay's last note that a continuance of the
blockkde will only further impoverish
Venezuela and make the settlement of the
claims) more difficult and is desirous of meet
ing the suggestion of the I'nited States.
At the same time It cannot act without an
agreement with Germany and Great Britain.
As a solution of the question the suggestion
Is again mooted whether the Pnlted States
must be asked to guarantee the payment of
the sums awarded, now that the situation
has so cpmpletery changed.
Cnstro Passive Germany.
BERLIN, Jan. 12. The Foreign office
here is .somewhat puzzled by President
Castro's last note. He avoids specific ac
ceptance of the powers' stipulations and
seemingly leaves the basis for a settlement
as Indefinite as In his preceding dispatch,
agreeing generally to arbitration.
The president's reply las really not ad
vanced the matter at all, but It la con
fidently supposed he has given Mr. Bowen
full power of attorney.
The State .department at Washington has
advised the Foreign office that Mr. Bowen
has sailed from La Guayra. Nothing more
will be done from this side until Mr. Bowen
arrives In Washington.
Bowen la on Hla Wy,
WASHINGTON, Jan. 12. Mr. Bowen be
fore leaving La Guayra yesterday on
Dolphin, dispatched a short telegram to
the State department announcing his de
parture, but not stating what port he ex
pects to make in the' United States. The
Navy department was Informed that the
boat would stop first at Kingston for coal.
Inqalries at the State department as to
whether or not answers had been received
from the European capitals to President
Castro's last communication developed that
the department now baa nothing to do, di
rectly or indirectly, with ' the exchanges
which may pass between the powers and
Venezuela. The functions of the depart
ment are sa'.d to have ceased when It
brought the parties together and they must
hereafter communicate directly. Pre
sumably Mr. Bowen will be addressed as
the representative of Veneiuela. and as
he cannot be reached on shipboard, there
probably will be a halt to the exchanges.
Advices received here Indicate that while
Mr. Bowen comes aV Venezuela's commis
sioner President Castrq, has made It a con
dition that the bfbekade shall be raised be
fore he proceeds wltb the preparation of
the protocol for the peaceful adjustment Of
the claims. Moreover, It now develops that
In this request Venezuela is likely to have
the support of Italy. The United States,
though not a party to the negotiations, of
course will throw the weight of Ita moral
influence on the same side. The Italian
government is Influenced In Its course by I
purely economic considerations. It does
not desire to crush Venezuela simply to
procure payment of claims. The contin
uance of the blockade by sapping the very
life of the country threatens to make it
Impossible for Venezuela to pay these claims
within any reasonable period, so that any
Judgment rendered against it by private ar

be hollow and almost without results.

VIENNA, Jan. 12. Serious differences, ae
eordlngNto Die Zelt. have arisen between
the Countess and Count de Lonyay, form
erly the Crown Princess Stephanie, dutlng
their stay In the south of France. The
count Is reported to have suddenly left his
wife and to have since given no Intimation
as to his whereabouts. The nature of the
alleged differences has not developed.
The count left his wife at Mentone on
January 7 and his present whereabouts Is
not known. His fVlends assert that In ad
dition to financial difficulties the count hni
found his position In, society aa the hus
band of the former crown prlncese of Austria-Hungary
and unpleasant and will seek a divorce.
The disagreement between the couple hat
long been evident and It Is believed that
pecuniary troubles underlie the affair.
As a widow the former crow-n princess
enjoyed an Income Tf $1?5,000 and bad free
residence at the) Imperial palace and the
use of carriages and servants. It Is re
ported that the couple married In the be
lief that Emperor Francis Joseph and King
Leopold would coptrlbute to their mainten
ance. In this, however, they were disap
pointed. The emperor gave the countess
$25,000 a year, while King Leopold stopped
her former allowance of $10,000 altogether.
The countess consequently tried to meet
all the expenses of maintaining her house
hold with one-fifth of her former Income
and found the task Impossible.
She used the Influence of her daughter,
Archduchess Elizabeth Marie, who is a fa
vorite with the Austrian emperor, to secure

establish a residence In South Dakota, re
ducing the number dt causes for which
divorces may be granted and otherwise
making It more difficult for eastern people
to secure drvorces in South Dakota, la not
taken aeriously here. The agitation is con
fined solely to those wbo are envious of
Sioux Falls because; this city, without any
effort on tne part of Ita cltiiens, haa become
the divorce center of the state. While the
divorce business Is a source of revenue to
some attorneys and to some of the local

whether the legislature amends the divorce
laws or not. However, It. Is a safe predic
tion that the legislature, which It now in
session.' will absolutely refuse to tamper
with the present divorce laws, which are
a. atringent aa those of many other states.
