Board of Ednr&tion it Eipso'.ed to Elect tbe
JOHN r. WIESE TAKES HIS OWN LIFE

Baronies Despondent and Shoot,
Himself In the Head
Magic I V.J- Gossip.
The mott Important meeting Of the
Board of Education of the present achool
year will be held at the office of the super
lntendent In the high school building this
evening, when teachers for the coming
year will be elected. At the present time
about 114 teachers are on the rolls, besides
Janitors and other employes. Members ot
the board consider that It Is no more than
right to name the teachers before the
school ' year closes In order that those
chosen for next year may be In position to
make arrangements for summer vacations.
At the time the present board was or
ganlzed President Morrill stated publicly
that the board would not be run as a polit
ical machine, but that competency alone
would secure promotions or places on the
salary roll of the school district of South
It was understood last night that the
teachers' committee had held several meet
ings with Superintendent McLean and had
practically agreed upon the names of the
majority of teachers to be elected and also
settled on the amount of salary to be paid.
As the transaction of routine business
will take some time before the election ot
teachers comes up, the session will doubt
less be a long ono and on this account
there may be no attempt made to select
janitors at tonight's meeting, although an
examining board may be appointed In ordei
that the new board may prepare for the
usual June examinations.
J. F. Wleie Commits Salrlde.
John F. Wiese. 59 years of age, committed
ulclde at his home, 1506 North Twenty
sixth street, Sunday morning, by shooting
himself In the head. The deceased was
the father of J. H. Wlese, the well known
contractor, and lived at the home of his
on. In speaking of the occurrence Mr.
"My family arose about the usual time
and descended to the dining . room for
breakfast. Father was still In his room
when we went downstairs and we supposed
that -he was asleep, so did not disturb
him. We had been downstairs only a few
minutes when we heard a fall and rushed
upstairs to ascertain what was the mat
ter. My father's room was empty and so
we went to the front room. The door was
locked on the Inside, but it was quickly
broken open. Upon the floor beside the
bed lay the body of my father. He was
Mr. Wiese said that for some time past
his father had been despondent and to this
he attributed the cause of suicide. The
remains were turned over to the Brewer
Undertaking company and Coroner Bralley
notified. An Inquest . will be held at
Brewer's this morning at 10 o'clock.
Cndahy Was l.neky. '
Superintendent Patrick Sheehy of the
Cudahy Packing company considers that
Mr. Cudahy played in big luck the night
the two big Iron smokestacks were blown
down. "If the large' stack had fallen two
feet farther to the east," said Mr. Sheehy,
"it would have destroyed the condensers
on the roof and then the plant Would have
had to shut down entirely perhaps for two
weeks. As It was, there was not much
damage done to the roof of the hog house."
The stacks are up again temporarily, but
by the middle of the week hew stacks will
be in place 'and all the damage repaired.
The accident was caused by one of the
guy .'Wires breaking loose from Its fast
enings during, the high wind.

Considerable Interest Is manifest in the
meeting of the Southeast Improvement club
to be held Thursday evening at the Madison
school. President Kennedy said last night
that the club was out for business and pro
posed having some Improvements In that
part of the city If there Is any way to get
them. Mr. Kennedy said that one of the
most Important Improvements desired was
the extension of the Albright line to the
Sarpy county line. Now that the work on
the Florence extension has about been com
pleted It Is thought that the officers of the
street railway company can be Induced to
put In an additional half-mile of track. It
Is stated that the expense would not be
heavy and the convenience would be greatly
appreciated by those living near the south

INDIANA FARMERS AROUSED
Threaten Lynching- If Aeeallan
Women and Children Are
LAWKENCEBURG, Ind., May 24.-Tht
has been a day of Intense sgitatlon In this
city over the murder of Rosa Kaiser and
the murderous assault on her father last
Friday night. The farmers gathered here,
at Guilford, at Manchester and other
towns In this county and openly threatened
lynching If the guilty person could be
Identified. Sheriff Axbey has a strong
guard of deputies at the Jail tonight, where
Louis Kverson, known as "Black Ponto,"
Is held on suspicion. There is no doubt
but that this negro would have been
lynched 'today but for the announcement
that Albert Darling, who came here from
Manchester, did not Identify him as the
negro who had called at the home of Mrs.
Mary Orlffln shortly after the assault ot
the Kaisers, and none of the other neigh
bors could identify the prisoner.
While the crowds were coming to town
a dispatch was received that another crime
had been committed in the county and
this diverted attention from the Jail.
Sheriff Axbey was called In the morning to
Welsburg, where an unidentified negro,
supposed to belong to the same railroad
construction gang, had assaulted two little
daughters of George Smith, a farmer. The
sheriff was joined by. many farmers in
this county and also by M. C. Cowdry with
his bloodho.inds. After a hard chase it
was found that the negro had boarded a
freight train in the afternoon on the Big
Four railroad at Bulman station and when
telegrams were sent after the train the
negro could not be-found. It is supposed
he Jumped off the train, possibly before It
reached the next station, but he was on
the cars long enough for the hounds to
lose the trail. Sheriff Axbey, Deputy
Patcher and others returned to the Jail here
tonight, but the farmers, with hounds, are
still scouring the county. Sheriff Axbey
has a theory that the negro who escaped
from Welsburg today, la the one who as
saulted the Kaiser family.
Mrs. Smith states that she and her two
little girls were alone In the house when
the negro entered with a club. They
screamed and escaped from the house,
when thei negro fled in great haste before
the neighbors reached them. Mrs. Smith's
husband wss taken to the asylum two
weeks ago and it was known that she lived
The funeral of Miss Kaiser took place
today. Neither of the parents could attend.-

Stand Firm and Promisee
LOWELL, Mass.. May 24. President
Gompers of the American Federation of
Labor addressed nn audience of about 4,000
strikers on the south common this after
noon. He said to win the strike the strik
ers must touch the mill men in their pocket
books, lie made light of the condition of
the cotton market. His most significant ut
terance was as follows:
"I believe and hope that you will win In
this fight. Anything I can within my power
will be done to aid you. . I am not prepared
to state the extent of my aid, but I am here
to say that I recently issued a circular to
organised labor to aid the strikers of
Lowell. I do not think that so much money
will como to Lowell as came to the miners,
but I hope It will come In sufficient
amounts to enable you to buy bread and
maintain your manhood and womanhood,
and If you fall It will not be my fault.
"The operatives want to go back to work
self-respecting and with ' eye bright and
more ambition to Derform their old duties
to the best of their ability. ' I have no hesi
tancy In saying that If It met the approval
of those delegated by you I would feel It
my duty a well as a pleasure to bring this
contest to an honorable close, but If you
cannot go back without sacrificing self-respect,
by the God who made yon, I advise
you to leave Lowell and make your living
where you may. When self-respect Is gone
all else of the future goes with It."

PHILADELPHIA, May 24.-A Are that is
estimated to have caused a loss of upwards
of $1,000,000 occurred this evening In the
building of the Front Street Warehousing
company. The building was three stories
high on Front street and five In the rear
and had two sub-cellars. Merchandise of
a general character was stored In the place.
The third floor was packed solidly with
matting, and besides this there were In

heavy machinery of various descriptions,
a carload of wines and other liquors and a
carload of matches.
The fire started in the basement and was
not discovered until the center of the first
floor was in flames. The character of the
goods in the building made It an easy prey
to the flames and the whole structure was
soon ablaze. ' Everything in the building
was destroyed either by Are or water. The

many firms and individuals and it Is not

LEPROSY DUET0 POOR FISH
English Surgeon Maintains that the
Dread ' Disease Is Not
LONDON, May '25. Jonathan Hutchin
son, the well-known surgeon and former
president of the Royal College of Sur
geons, who recently returned from a tour
of Investigation In India as to the cause
and prevention of leprosy, has written a
letter to the Times on the subject of fish
eating as the cause of leprosy. He gives
the opinion that the Catholic fast days
are responsible for the spread of leprosy
and that whrrever there Is a risk of ob
taining unsound fish the use of fish on
fast days ought to be forbidden. Reiterat
ing his opinion that neither contagion nor
the crusades, but Christianity, was re
sponsible for the prevalence of leprosy In
Europe during the middle ages, he ex
presses the' fear that the some thing is
now happening In India and elsewhere.
"Wherever Catholic missions are suc
cessful," says Dr. Hutchinson, "leprosy
Increases. My calculation Is that the risk
to a Catholic convert Is twenty-fold that of
one who remains in the Hindoo faith."
' Dr. Hutchinson says the Indian Jain, who
Is a vegetarian, almost invariably escapes
from leprosy, while the Catholic suffers
fearfully, and he expresses the opinion
that this Is a proof that the disease Is non
contagious.. In conc'uslon, among several
suggested preventives, he strongly urges
the abolition of the salt tax in India to
enable the Hindoo to render fish whole
some. MOUNTAIN IS POORLY BUILT
Geologists Report on the Canse of
the Tnrtle Mountain
OTTAWA, Ont., May 24. R. W. Brock
and R. O. McConnoll, the geologists who
were sent to report on the cause of the
landslide at Turtle mountain, which wiped
out the town of Frank, have submitted a
preliminary report to Sir William Mullock,
the acting minister of the Interior. Mr.
McConnell states that the part of Turtle
mountain which gave way was about halt
a mile wide, over 2,003 feet in height and I
from 400 to 600 feet thick at the center, j
ne estimates mat Detween 80,000,000 and
80.000,000 tons of rock fell, the debris ot
which covers almost two square miles.
The slide Is attributed to the steepness ot
the mountain ind the shattered condition
of the rock. This was due to "faulting"
and crushing of the rock during the process
of mountain building. Heavy rainfalls
pouring through the fissures tended to open
them still further. The accident was 1 kely
hastened by a creep in the coal mine,
which caused a jar.
The mountain where the slip took place
Is very badly fractured and Is now slipping
down continuously in small pieces. There
is danger of another slide, as fissures are
Mr. " McConnell says there will always
be danger in living lit Frank and says the
people should move as soon as possible.
The geologists say there was no volcanic
eruption or earthquake, nor was there an
explosion in the coal mine.

LONDON, May 25. A dispatch to tho

Douglas. Affirmed. Duffle, C. Division
1. The discretion conferred upon the mort
gagee by a clause in a chattel mortgage
authorising him to take possession of the
mortgaged property whenever he may deem
himself unsnfe or insecure. Is not to be ex
ercised arliltrnrily; such belief must rest on
2. The facts that would warrant such be
lief must be such ss did not exist, or of
which the mortgagee was Ignorant at the
time of taking tbe mortgage.
2. When an officer effects a valid levy on
personal property consisting of ponderous
articles the fact that he leaves such prop
erty on the premises of the debtor In
charge of a custodian who Is in the employ
of the debtor and who permits the debtor
to use such property, does not constitute an
abandonment of the levy as to the debtor
and those having notice.
4. Where a chattel mortgage Is signed by
one member of the firm without authority
and without the knowledge or consent of
his partner or the mortgagee, and delivered
to a third party to be delivered to the mort
gagee, and the mortgagee upon learning of
such mortgage takes time to decide
whether to accept and does not accept It
until after a dissolution of the firm and
until after he had notice of such dissolu
tion, such mortgage Is not binding on the
partner not Joining therein. 1
6. In an action of replevin where one of
the parties claim the property by virtue of

not error to direct the Jury In case they find

market value of such property without at
tho same time directing the attention of tho
Jury to the manner in which said property
must be sold by the officer, and his want
of discretion possessed by other owners of
goods to accept or reject such offers as are
not considered a fair equivalent for them.
t. If the plaintiff In replevin to whom the
property has been delivered may under any
circumstances show that subsequent to the
delivery, the property has been taken from
him under an execution against the defend
ant in the action, he cannot do so without
at the same time abandoning any claim of
his own to the property Bnd consenting that
It. may be applied In satisfaction of the

CATTLE Cattle receipts at mis point
hare been very moderate this week, as will
be seen trom the table aoove. There Is a
uecieusd of about head as compared
wltn iit weea ana ot about 2.000 head as
compared wiin the corresponning week of
last year. The combined receipts at all the
markets, however, have been large, which,
taken wltn the heavy supplies oi the last
several weeks, have caused prices to con-'

and Wedntsaay were ths low (leys of tne
week, while on Thursda and 1- rlday part
of the decline was regained. As compared
With the close of last week the market r.my
salely be quoted a big dime lower, with so.iie
grades of cattle selling much worse than
That. As stated above the market Is so un
even that sales look all the way from
nearly steady to IWbCOc lower thou tuo
prices ptevahing last week. All kinds have
suffered, but undoubtedly the Heavy cattle
And especially tnose lacking In quality nave
been pounded the worst. Common cattle
are quotable from 83.85 to 34.26 fair to good
froni 84.30 to 4.60. with the choicer glades
latgelv from 34.60 to 14.80. A prime bunch
would undoubtedly bring considerably more
than that, but at the same time It takes
rood cattle to bring over 84. 6. .
The cow maraet nas suhered much worse
than the market for beef steers, and prices
are very uneven. The good cows, such as
have been selling from 34.00 up, have suf
fered the worst decline and are fully 2oc
lower, and In some cases the decline Is as
much as 40c. Canners and cutters, how
ever have sold freely all the week, and
prices are, It, anything, a little stronger.
Packers have' not been at all anxious for
good cows this week, which Is rather an
uncommon occurrence, but they explain It
by saying that cow beef has been costing
them too much as compared with steer
beef The fair to good cows are selling
largely from 33.25 to 1U. 76, with the choicer
grades going very largely from 33.75 to
34.00. It takes something extra good to
bring much over 84 00. . ,. , . . .
Bulls and veal calves have held Just about
steady all the week where the quality was
The demand for stockers and feeders this
week has been confined very largely to
the cattle of good quality, and such kinds
are a little stronger than they were a week
ago. As high as 84.90 has born paid this
week. Warmed-up cattle, however, have
been rather neglected and are only about
steady. Representative sales:

HOGS There was a light run of hogs
here today for a Saturday, and the market
opened strong to 5c higher than yesterday
morning, or a little better than yesterday's
general market. Good hogs sold largely
from 86.20 to 83. with a top at 36.30.
The commoner kinds went from 3620 down.
The general market wus rather unsteady
for there were many strong and weak
spots Late in the mornlna- trading was
dull andi the market closed slow and weak
to 6c lower.
The receipts for the week have been
rather light, there being. a decrease of about
24,000 from last week and 7,000 from the
same week of last year. The week started
In on Monday with a decline In prices, but
on Tuesday there was the first substantial
advance that has been made this month.
Prices continued to drop off from day to
day for th rest of the week until the
average today Is about 16c lower than that
of last Saturday. Representative sales:

SHEEP Receipts of sheep this week have
been fairly liberal for this time of the
year, as there is an increase over the
same week of last year amounting to about
7,000 head. As compared with last week,
however, there is a decrease of about
The quality of the offerings received here
has been very much on the common order,
taking the receipts as a whole. Packer
have not taken hold very freely and con
sequently the tendency of prices has been
downward. Borne days they would appas-
ently have to have a few and the prlc.f
paid would be much better, and the ne.

As a result the market may be quoted
very uneven, but ss a general thing sheep
are fully 15fi25c lower than a week ago.
and so also sre sll hut the choicest grades
of lambs. Choice lambs are in good de
mand at steady prices.
The liberal receipts of grass sheep at
the southern river markets and also at
Chicago have undoubtedly hurt the mar
ket on common cornfeds, ss packers seem
to prefer grass sheep to common cornfeds.
The feeder market Is very quiet, the
same as usual at this time of the year.
Receipts are light, and so, also Is the de

LONDON, May 24. The towering of the
bank rate from 4 to 3H per cent last
Thursday came as a welcome relief to the
stock market, but owing to the proximity
of the settlement Its effects will not be
fully felt until later. There was very little
increase in the volume of business trans
acted last week, but the tone of the market
was firm. Foreigners were neglected.
Brazilians were weaker. The new Brazilian
loan was at a premium of three-eighths ot
1 per cent Americans were weak early
in the week, but Improved later. The price
of Americans were irregular, but there was
considerable buying and the demands for
these securities more exacting. -
MANCHESTER. May 24.-The aggregate
of the business done on the cloth market
last week was poor, the fluctuations in the
price of cotton Impeding sellers. The
movement In cotton Is too rapid for the
foreign markets to respond. Small quanti
ties of printing and finishing cloths were
sold. The business for the east was In
significant owing to the low prices offered
for the larger orders. Yarns were In small
demand and the transactions In American
qualities were Irregulur.
