COljORADO SPRINGS, Colo.. May 8.
(Special Telegram.) Omaha administered
tne nrn aereai loaay mat me millionaires
have suffered since the season opened, by
a score of 4 to 2. In the first half of the
fourth inning, with the score standing two
to nothing, In favor of Colorado Springs,
two passes to first, a hit and an error by
Fleming, formerly of the Omaha team,
gave Rourke's men three runs after two
were out. Omaha cinched the game In the
eighth Inning by another score, resulting
from an error, a sacrifice and a single.
With the exception of these two innings
the game waa a fast one and replete with
aensatlonal playing that brought the grand
stand to Its feet. In the second inning
Shafstal gained the displeasure of the fans
for running Into Lumley on the first base
line, giving the Colorado Springs player
bad fall. Shafstal was loudly hissed
every time he came to bat after that. It
waa clearly apparent, however, that the
tnlxup was unintentional and the result
only of Shafatal's eagerness to cover the
bag and get the runner. A feature of the
game was Carter's timely hitting. Score:

COMPILING INDIAN TREATIES
Interesting; and Instructive ' Work
Jnst Oat of Government
WASHINGTON. May . The government
printing office has Just Issued two quarter
volumes entitled "Indian Affairs, Law and
Treaties," compiled by direction of con
gress by Charles T. Ksppler, clerk of the
senate committee on Indian affairs. The
volumes contain every treaty made by the
United States with the Indians and all the
laws, executive orders and proclamations
relating to the Indians up to December
1, 1902, together with statistics of tribes
trust funds, etc.
The commissioner of Indian affairs In
his annual reports has urged for some years
that such a compilation be made for the
reason that the laws and orders relating
to the Indians were scattered through
great number and variety of public docu
ments, making it exceedingly difficult tc
be sure that one had before him all legis

GRAND JUKY CAUSES A STIR
Piople of Brown County Do Not Know Jutt
Why it Wu CaJl.l
CATTLE RUSTLING MAY BE THE MOTIVE
Another Theory la that Loose Killing
la to Be Investlarated, While (.am-,
biers and Bootlettarra Are
on Amioai Seat.
AINSWORTH, Neb., May 3. (Special
Telegram.) A grand Jury has been called
for the next term of the district court
which convenes here the 18th Instant. In
quiry falls to reveal the cause of the call
ing of the Jury and all sorts of rumors
are afloat. One Is that the Loose killing
by Detective Hans, which caused so much
excitement here a couple ot years ago. Is
to be aired. Another rumor Is that re
ported gambling and bootlegging in the
past is to receive the attention of the
grand Jury, while another Is that cattle
rustling and horse stealing ot some kind
will be looked Into. Whatever the reason
the fact remains that a grand Jury hat
been called and the general public has so
far not been let Into the secret.
CHAMBERS PEOPLE HOPEFUL
Have Waited Long; for a Railroad and
How Expert Two of
CHAMBERS, Neb., May 8. (Special. )
The people of Chambers, who have been
waiting so long for a railroad, now have
strong hopes that their expectations will
soon be realized and that they will not only
have one railroad but two ot the great
railroad systems of the country will form
a Junction at this point. On Thursday ot
last week a delegation from this place went
to O'Neill, where they were met by D. S.
Steel, general superintendent ot the Great
Northern; Fred Rogers, general passenger
agent; E. L. Brown, assistant general sup
erintendent; C. J. Bowen, roadmaster, and
T. Roup, general master mechanic.
It Is understood that these gentlemen
visited O'Neill with a view ot getting In
formation about the best route to extend
the line of the Great Northern from O'Neill
west to some point connecting with the
Burlington. It Is also said that the
Chambers delegation convinced the gentle
men that It would be to the Interest ot their
road to build south from O'Neill to Cham
bers and from here west to Dunning, which
will give the Great Northern, in connection
with the Burlington, a direct route from
St. Paul, Minneapolis and Slcx City to
the Black Hills, Denver and the west.
It Is also understood that in connection
with the extension of the Great Northern
the Burlington will at the same time ex
tend Its line from Ericaon to this place to
form a Junction with the Great Northern.
These facts explain the recent visit of
the Burlington right of way man, who,
during the month ot April made a close in
spection of the proposed routes north from
Burwell and Ericson and as the connection
can be made from Ericson by constructing
only thirty miles ot new road It Is re
ported here that the extension was found
to be the most feasible route.
The Burlington extension from Ericson
will open up as good a territory ot public
land as can be found in Nebraska, as sev
eral miles of the route will be built over
public lands and with the vast number of
settlers locating; in Wheeler and Garfield
counties, will famish a large volume ot
business for the new roads.
That this country Is settling up rapidly
Is shown by the fact that over 10,000 acres
of public lands were filed on at the O'Neill
land office by homesteaders, during the
month of April Just closed and land buyers
are visiting this locality every day.
The old survey of the Burlington north
from Ericson, on which It Is expected the
new road will be built, runs very close to
the county line all the way betweeu
Wheeler and Garfield counties.
It is quite probable that there will be
one new town between this place and
O'Neill and two new towna between here
and Ericson, while there will be room for
several towns from here to Dunning. The
old settlers of this place, who have been
waiting so long for a railroad and have
always had faith that a road would sooner
or later build into such good territory as
this, are now Jubilant over the prospects
of having their hopes realized.

exciting race for a homestead took place
here last Thursday between a man named
Matthew Mick and a woman mhose name

some thirty miles south and west ot O'Neill
and both parties were racing to get to the
land office first to file on the same piece
ot land for a homestead. Mick was suc

that he enjoys going to the Vatican from an
artistic -and spectacular point of view. The
moment he arrived at the plaza of St. Petet
he was alert, pointing out objects of inter
est to his sons. In fact, the spectacular
part of the visit began there, as the great
square, densely crowded, was most Im
posing. As his majesty passed the stu
dents of the German ecclesiastical college
called "Little Cardinals," because of their
red gloves, they gave a formidable "hoch."
On the far side pf the plaza there was ss
sembled 1,000 pilgrims from Cologne, carry
ing flags and bouquets of flowers. They re
ceived their emperor with tremendous ap
plause, presented the flowers to him and
made Impressive demonstrations of loyaltyi
Picked Swiss guards assumed the duty ot
guarding tho Imperial carriage at the en
trance to the Vatican. Passing the tower,
his majesty and his suite entered the fa
mous court of San Damaso. Here the em
peror and his sons were received with mili
tary honors by the Palatine guards and a
platoon of gendarmes, while the papal
colors, yellow and white, floated in the light
Received In State.
The entrance of his majesty was accom
panied by a tesounding drum tattoo. The
Imperial carriage stopped at the noble
staircase, where Mons. Cagnio de Azevedo,
major domo, helped the emperor to ascend.
He presented the German papal chamber
lains. Count Peccl, nephew of the pope;
Prince Rospiglisi, commandant of the
noble guard, and other high dignitaries of
the pontifical court. When asked It he
desired to use the elevator, the emperor
replied that he preferred to mount the
stairs. At the first landing bis majesty
was met by the famous servants of the
ante chamber, in rich red brocade, flanked
by members ot the Swiss guard in breast
plates and helmets with red plumes, the
new uniform Inaugurated at the Jubilee.
The young princes ,were especially struck
with tho uniforms of tho noble guard.
Upon arriving at the Salle Clementina
his majesty was received by the major
domos and other personages ot the private
ants-chamber. Before reaching the ante
chamber is majesty receiwd homage from
a group of seven German bishops who are
now in Rome.
Pope and fcmperor Meet.
When Pope Leo was advised of the ar
rival of his guests the door was thrown
open and the pontiff appeared. He was
dressed In white, with the exception of a
small cape of red vevet trimmed with
ermine. The emperor advanced alone, mak
ing a profound bow. The pontiff inquired
in French as to the emperor's health.
Emperor William then presented his two
sons. HI majesty and the pontiff then
retired to the latler'a private study. The
audience lasted forty minutes. At the end
of this time the princes were summoned
and spoke to the pontiff. The Imperial
party then paid a brief visit to Cardinal
Upon his three previous visits to the
Vatican 'Emperor William returned direct
to the qulrlnal. This was not liked by
the Vatican, as It thought he should first
return to neutral ground. King Edward
followed this course. Today Emperor Wil
liam returned from the Vatican to the
Prussian legation accredited to the holy
aee, where he changed carriages, his cuir
rasslers remaining at the legation.
This course Is supposed to Imply that
his majesty wished to pay particular defer
ence to the feelings of the Vatican. There
waa another new departure during this
visit of the emperor. Previously Cardinal
Rampolla had returned the Imperial visit
to the Vatican at the Prussian legation
and had found only the Prussian minister.
Today, however, Emperor William waited
at the legation, received the cardinal most
cordially and had a long conference with
Emperor William presented to the pope
a large photograph ot the Metz cathedral.
The pope expressed his thanks for this
gift and remarked that the Metz cathedral
greatly resembled that at Rheims.
A state dinner was given tonight at the
qulrlnal, there being present 200 guests,
among whom were the most prominent
people of Rome. The ball room was used
for a dining room. The tables were ar
ranged In a semi-circle and exquisitely
decorated with flowers. When King Victor
Emmanuel arose to propose his toast the
band played the German anthem, and when
Emperor William delivered his felicitation
the royal march was played, all the guests
standing meanwhile. ,
A gala performance was given at the
theater tonight. Emperor William re
ceived an ovation on his way to the theater.
The royal party waa met by Prince Collona
and the mayor of Rome, who welcomed the
emperor in behalf of the city. On the en
trance of the party to the royal box the
audience rose during the singing of the
German anthem. Emperor William sat be
tween King Emmanuel and Queen Helene,
with the Italian princes behind them.
Queen Helene spoke often to the emperor,
who seemed to have a word for everybody.

about and uttered threats until the train

today fought hand to hand with each other
and then fought bend In hand against the
police in the Slavonic Roman Catholic
church. The trouble was started by sev
eral women as the collectors were circu
lating through the church. There were
2,000 men, women and children In the
church when the fight began. In spite of
all the protests of Father Kollar and
others of the church members fought with
fists and pieces of furniture, knocking each
other right and left. Some one ran from
the church and called on the police for

policemen drove up to the church and the
patrolmen entered the edifice, which was
filled with whacks, thumps, din and tumult.
Bloody noses and lacerated faces were
numerous. The men had been penned In
by a cordon of angry women, who pelted
the stronger sex with clenched hands and
books. By the time the police arrived
some of the combatants had fled to the
street. As the policemen entered the church
those on the 'outside returned to tho fight,
armed with clubs, stones and revolve! s.
Those within left off fighting with each
other and unitedly beset the police. Those
from without fired Into the patrolmen from
the rear. Women and children cried out
in terror at the sight and many men rau
from the church or leaped out ot windows.
Then the policemen drew revolvers and
threatened to shoot unless order prevailed.
The affrighted combatants ceased fighting
and the policemen began to make arrests.
Of all the persons Injured, none had to
be taken to a hoftpltal. Father Kollar, who
entered into the midst of the fighting tn
an effort to calm his parishioners, escaped
uninjured. Many arrests were made during
the day, but no one knows exactly who
started the fight, or what It was about.

A. W. Hoyt of Mitchell, Neb.. Is a guest
at the Millard. "The recent blizzard was
not so severe in the North Platte valley
as with you here," said he. "The storm
was bad enough, however, for that sec
tion, and live stock suffered severely. The
cattle had Just been taken off the winter
feeding and were picking up the scant
young grass on the ranges when the storm
came. Young cattle and sheep suffered
the most. . In the dry country south and
west of us there were heavy losses ot
stock by the storm. What makes It a
little worse Is that about all the available
feed had been used up during the winter.
Alfalfa now sells there at $5 per ton la
the stack, and wild hay down toward Mini
tare will bring as high as $10 per ton.
"We nre looking for pretty good timea

much emigration, as the Irrigated lands are
held pretty high and owners are seemingly
well satisfied and have placed not many

STAMPING OUT STOCK DISEASE
.Condition Owlag to Hard
CHEYENNE, Wyo.. May $. (Special )
Assistant Chief Melvln of the Bureau of
Animal Industry, accompanied by Dr.
George 8. Hlckox, agent tn charge of the
western division, arrived today from Ball
Lake City and spent the day In consulta
tion with state officers and others with
reference to the prevalence of contagious
diseases among cattle, horsea and sheep tn
The department Is waging an active cam
paign throughout the western states In an
effort to eradicate scablea, glanders, Texas
Itch and other diseases. Its agents are
soliciting the co-operation of the state au
thorities, and with the combined forces at
work great progress haa been made In a
number of states.
It Is learned that Wyoming, owing to
the severe winter and the Inability of many
owners to take ths necessary etepa to
stamp out disease. Is overrun with scab
ies and glanders. Ths atata veterinarian
Is doing everything possible to stamp out
glanders, but the disease appears to have
a strong hold on the horses of the atata
and some time will be required to entirely
eradicate It. Stringent rules have been
adopted by the State Board of Livestock
commissioners, however, and these are
now being rigidly enforced.
It Is stated by one tn a posltioc to know
that fully 50 per cent of the sheep tn
this state are affected with scabies, and
conditions appear to be growing worse
daily. Tfcs government has five Inspectors
In Wyoming, but the force appears to be
r si vj
Inadequate for present Deeds. There at
a number of state Inspectors, b
to the severe weather the past
they have been unable to do as good work
as would otherwise have been- done.
Oovernor Chatterton has taken hold of
the matter and will do everything possible
to assist the government authorities in
tamping out the disease. Secretary
Walker wilt call a meeting of the Stain
Board of Sheep commissioners tn a few
days and at that time plans will be formed
for an active campaign against cabke
In the state. Chief Melvln and Dr. Hlckox
will coma on from Salt Lake City and al
tend the meeting and offer such sugses
tlons as will help the board.
Boys Busy Bteallnar Wheels.
CHEYENNE, Wyo.. May 8 (Special. )
A Lumber of boys, ranging In age front
10 to 16 years, have been doing a whole
sale business In stealing bicycles. The Imls
would take the wheels to a rendezvous in
the Crow creek bottoms, where they changed
parts, put on different saddles and handle
bars, painted the frames, etc., and would
then sell the wheels. A number of wheels
have disappeared during the last few months
and the work of the gang was not ex
posed until today, when one of the boys
confessed. The leader will probably be sent
to the reform school.
