LINCOLN, Feb. 22. (Special.) "The In
terview with Joseph 8. Bartley, the de
faulting atate treasurer, a published In
The Bee this morning." said a prominent
member of tha legislature, "stamps him aa
a man of mora gall and brasenness, I won't
say nerve, and with less decency than any
man I ever saw. By that Interview he has
mora than aver cemented sentiment against
himself and his bondsmen.
"Aa for Bartley and hla bondsmen being
released from their obligation by the legis
lature, I think there la no possible chance
tor that. I was told some time ago that
a considerable sentiment- had been de
veloped tn favor of tha resolution which
has been prepared for their release, and
I took palna to Investigate It myself. I
find absolutely no sentiment In favor of
such a move In my part of the legislature
and It la my opinion that tha resolution
will never be Introduced."
Bartley's own action during thla session
cf the legislature haa done much to create
a sentiment against him. Many nights
recently he baa been aeen intoxicated in
the hotela frequented by legislators. Ha
plays tha part of a good fellow and those
who will may Join him in hla revels. That
Is the life that Joe Bartley, once re
apected and honored. Is leading, to seat
his own conscience to prevent it from
pricking him for tha crime ha baa dona
tola state and bis friends.
Gain the Paee that Kill.
Bartley Is going the pace that kills, and
according to tha history of the lives of
those of his stripe, there la avary reason
to believe that some day his brain, de
bauched with liquor, bis physical body i
wreck, hla conscience goading him onward,
Joe Bartley will tell tha people of Nebraska

Miss Smith vaa a part, and her memory
wtll always be a part of tha 8tata uni

there are being told Incidents of her life

tiany university graduates today scattered

as registrar kept the atanding ot the stu

kept their pledge is attested by the fact
that In those wards wherein most of the
laboring people reside. Adams received a
large majority of the vote. That the ma
chine failed to keep Ita agreement la at
tested by the fact that in the "church
wards," wherein the silk stockings reside,
Hosklns received leas than one-halt of the
vote cast for Adams. Now all of this Is
very galling to the laboring people, and
they are Juat now wondering very seriously
hether they will again be turned down
Tba fact that the excise board was not
named last Tuesday plaoes tha wlnnera ot
the mayoralty contest In a moat peculiar
position. They supported Adams on a plat
form pledged to a high aaloon license. Now
they are called upon to keep an agreement
and support men known to favor the 11,000
license for excisemen. And IT the machine
fails to land Hosklns, the labor candidate,
then It la more than probable that the
labor vote will not go to the republican
candldatea at the election. For the labor
ing men say tbey are not to be trifled with.
Machine la Tisjht Plaee.
There la ground for the atatement that
tha machine baa been very quiet since the
nomination of Adams and has left Hos
klns to get his Votes the best way be can.
So patent has this been that ths labor
element haa demanded that the machine
do something or say It will not. So, at
last the machine has started out In an
attempt to land Hosklns. Both Wolfe and
Hoaklas refused to draw oil when com
promise wss offered whereby one ot tbe
Winnett men was to withdraw provided
tbe machine withdrew one of Its candidates.
Wolfs refused because be bad been the can
didate of .the labor unlona, and has been
promised, so It Is said. Now It Is up to tha
machine, for It Is not likely that both can
be elected; for tbe people apparently are
In favor of a high license. One Winnett
man and one machine man can be elected,
for that will mean tba retention of the high
llceose. And If either Wolfe or Hosklns
Is defeated It will mean tha weakening of
the machine. '
In the meantime, owing to the fact that
considerable feeling has been engendered
by the primary, a very extraordinary and
somewhat sensational story haa been set
afloat. This Is to the effect that the Com
mercial club, which was an ardent supporter
ot Winnett, was largely responsible for
tba action of ths Lancaster delegation In
throwing down the people ot Lincoln and
other cities Sod standing squarely for the
railrcads on the question ot taxing ter
minal propertlea for municipal purposes. It
Is said that when the members of the Com
mercial club discovered that representatives
ot tha Burlington railroad Intended to
make a vigorous fight on Winnett, that
soma of tha members of tbe Commercial
club made this agreement: That If Mr.
Blgnell would draw off and leave tha cltl-
tens of Lincoln to light It out among
themselves that the club would withdraw
Its pressure from the Lancaster delega
tlon tn regard to the terminal taxation
question and allow the delegation and the
railroads to settle It among tnemseives,
Whether this was true or not, Mr. Blgnell
auiMetilv received a hunch to stop his
A prominent member of tne ciuo, wnen
asked in regard to the matter, said It was
absolutely false and that no such agreement
was made or thought of. The Lancaster
delegation threw down tha people and when
the Commercial club found that It could
get no assistance from the delegation, It
gave un the Sght for terminal taxation and
quit. However, thera are soma In Lincoln
who believe the story.
Thus tar the democrats of the city nave

publlcana to get all settled before maaing
a move. It la more than likely tht it

Tha Black Hills Mining Men's association
on Thursday evening last held one of ths
most Interesting of a long series Of In

rill, who bss applied with such success
the cyanide treatment to tha tailings from
the Homestake quarts mills, read a paper
describing tba character and treatment of
tne Homestake ores, wltn especial reier-
ence to ths effect snd cost ot the cyanide
treatment on the aame. The paper has
aroused' a great deal of interest among tba
mining men of tbe Hills, for the auccess
which Prof. Merrill has made ot that
process In Its application to the tailings
of tba Homestake ores has msds everyone
Interested In mines tn the Hills anxious
to learn a little mors ot his methods tbsn
the fact that tbey are successful.
The American Mining congress will meet
In Deadwood and Lead on October 7 to 11
ot this yesr, and the Black Hills Mining
Men's association la doing everything In Ita
power to make It tbe success which It de
serves to be. A special Invitation has
been sent by the association to President
Roosevelt to become, for at least one day,
tbe gueat of the association during the
meeting of the congresa, and It la probable
that tbe president will accept tha Invita
tion. The invitation, which was forwarded

was produced and rolled in the Black Hills,
and tha engraving upon It Is a work of art.

Doubles 'Its Force.
Edward Hanschka haa doubled tha force
ot miners on the Hogan A 'Anderson
ground on Elk creek. Recent developments
on ths ground show that tho vein, which
waa atruck In the shaft at a depth of fifty
feet, growa with depth. The former Owners
of the ground had run a 235-foot tunnel ort
the ground, and had been driving It paral
lel to tha vein, never being any further
than twenty-five feet from It. Mr. Hanschka
when be took possession of tbe property
abandoned work In the abaft, and entered
the tunnel. Ha started a drift to tba west
from ths end of the tunnel, and bad not
driven It twenty feet before he encountered
tbe vein. Ha Is now In on tha vein twenty
feet and has not found the wall. Tbe vela
ta struck at this point 175 feet below tba
bottom ot the fifty-foot abaft. The ore
hero carries values which will average from
tha numerous assays which have been made
from it of $16 a ton, although much richer
specimens have been taken from tba work
lngs. It la tha intention Juat so soon as
tha vsln haa bean creased to establish a
ststlon snd then .start drifting both ways
along tha course of tho vein, and after
the drifts have beea driven tar enough to
get out ot tha way of tho workman, to be
gin on a shaft and continue It down for
300 -feet. Boarding bouses, blacksmith
sbopa and offices bavs been built on ths
ground during the past week, and with the
beginning at the coming week a largo force
ot men wilt be working on ths development
ot the ground, which is one of ths best
propositions In one of tho richest free

property waa aold only a few weeks ago
for $30,000, and had tbe owners of It In

Governor Wright further said the Islands
are completely psclfled', and no trouble has
occurred ot a serious nstura for some time
except in a small district ot the Moham

As to ths prevalence of cholera, he said
It is confined almost entirely to tbe na
tlvet, on whom no sanitary measures csn
bs enforced, and It is being rapidly and
thoroughly stamped out.
On the subject of "military atrocities,1
the vies governor declined to talk except
to say that be knew of no such cruelties
as bad been charged and, of course, having
nothing to do with that branch of tha gov

exaggerated. American soldiers bad been
compelled to undergo many hardships and
suffered numerous indignities at the bands
of tbe rebellious natives, and ao far as be
knew had acted with remarkable forbear
ance and consideration.
"I am of the opinion." said he, "that the
talands will from this on, prosper and

natives are looking with favor on American
