Baltoar Discuss Sltaatlaa.
LONDON, Sept.' 86. Premier Balfour In
a lengthy letter to the archbishop of Can
terbury disousaed ths Maoauoman akua

the Charge of Filipino
LLAVKN WORTH, Sept. 11 First Lieu
tenant Kidney It. Btirbank, First Infantry,
stationed at Fort Leavenworth, filed suit
fn the district court today to annul a pre
tended murrlage with Mrs. Conception
Vniques, a Filipino woman.
Tim Ming of this suit Is the outcome ot
a clinigu made by Mrs. Vaxiiues to the
War department last spring that Lieuten
ant Hurbank had married her while In
the Philippine Inlands and that she wan his
liwful wife and wanted him to r.i'pport
her. Tho llrst notice of thla alleged mar
riage was mails publlo after the announce
ment of the engagement of Lieutenant Bur
bank to a society girl of Leavenworth.
The story of the Filipino marrrliig of
Lieutenant Burbunk, which he proclaims is
a fraud, comes from ' Vailndolld province,
where Lieutenant Burliank was In com
mand of a garrison ot United Stutes troops
In 1901.
Mrs. Vaxques. who was a widow with
three small children, lived In the village
where the garrison wuS located. Lieutenant
HuroanK came to rori ueavrnwonn a year
ago and a report followed him that he
whs married to a Filipino woman and was
the father of a newborn babe. The Fili
pino widow followed this by filing copies
of documents, pretending to ba a marriage
contract with Lieutenant Burbank.
To offset this Lieutenant Burbank and
Corporal Barnes sent affidavits to the War
department stating that Lieutenant Bur
bank was not In the village, but out on a
campaign on the data of the pretended
marriage; also that there was no notice
of the marriage posted or announoed by
the town crier going up and down the
streets of the village and proclaiming It
according to the Filipino custom, and the
pretended marriage Is a fraud and any
documents to back it a forgery.
It Is said that Lieutenant Bui-banks'
solution of the affair Is that a Justice of
the peace and president of the village
where he commanded the troops, was Im
prisoned for six months for Insubordina
tion, that the Justice had charge of the
records, and In his anger and to get even
with him, permitted the woman to apply
and make out a marrlr-ga'' certificate. Ills
object lu filing the suit here Is to clear
up his reco-d. 1 . .
Under the Kansas divorce laws the
woman haa forty days to answer. She
will not have time to do so, as It would
require at least three months to prepare
any defense and file it by a person now
in the Jlillipplnes.

Stockholder Allege that Concern Is
Not Belnax Properly Managed
by Directors.
PHILADELPHIA. Sept, 25. A bill was
filed today before Vice Chancellor Gray Jn
Camden by F. Bchoentleld, a stockholder
of the American Can company, praying for
an Injunction to restrain the payment of
the 2V, pfr cent dividend by the Board of
Directors on the company's preferred stock.
The matter will come before the vice
chancellor on September 28.
The bill, among other things,' charges
fraud In the organization of the company
and over capitalization, that the tangible
assets are not worth more than SlO.OiiO.OOO,
whereas the company Is capitalized at
iS2.500.OvO, that while the company acquired
U3 plants It has been operating only thirty
and according to its last showing only
earned 4 per cent on the total of Its value
of J.tMO.oort. It Is alleged that the payment
of the dividend would be an impairment of
its capital. The bill also prays that the
stock which Is alleged to have been fraudu
lently IsfUied and which it Is claimed went
as bonus, profit or award to the promoters,
be annulled If still In their hands, otherwise
that they be required to account therefor
for the money.

Therefore, be it

nominees of the coming republican county
Itenhved. That it la the duty of all re

In this county to earnestly and In good

republican county convention.
Resolved. That It Is the sense of this
meeting of republicans, representing all
factions. Interests Hnd candidates for office,
that Hll republicans. In Douglas county, re
gardless of previous faolioual alliances,
should aid the republican county central
committee In successfully parrying out
the present primary rules to thu end that
the republican voters may select, the nom
inees .of the party for the com! tig elec
tion. Republicans of all ranks, classes and
conditions, and of various degrees of opin
ion concerning local politics, crowded
Washington hall to the doors last night,
with the avowed purpose of promoting a
unification of purpose among the leaders
and the rank and file of the party. If the
great majority of the words used by the
speakers and the remarks made by the
audience after adjournment can be taken
as expressions,, the meeting did much to
achieve that mission. Even temper and
good 'tumor prevailed at nil times. A few
of the speakers were Inclined to refer to
old scores nnd events of the local history
that had made harmony a thing o be de
sired, but In the main the earnestness and
sincerity of the speakers was evident and so
received. Enthusiasm over the word "Har
mony" was easy to obtain at nil times.
Whether from the mouths of machine or
anll-machlne speakers, the sentiments of
peace and unity never failed to bring forth
thunders of applause, and In the final ap
peal by John L. Webster, the noise was
Judge, Barnes Called On.
In addition to the regular list of speak
ers arranged by the committees, Judge
John S. Barnes, nominee for Justice of the
supreme court, who happened to be pres
ent, and John L. Webster, candidate for the
vlee-presldentlal nomination, were called
for and responded with speeches in keep
ing with the spirit of the meeting. Nearly
all of the candidates paid glowing tributes
to Mr. Webster and Judge Karnes and de
clared It Important that there be harmony
In the Douglas county republican ranks
If they' are to have force and power
throughout the state and nation.
Few of the leaders anticipated a gather
ing displaying ao much toleration and good
feeling among erstwhile political opponents.
From .the-.tuatruxa - LicX the. . farthest
wnll irhten who had differed politically were
strangely mixed and many a man who for
months has been chilly to his neighbor
because of what happened in one or more
campaigns sat side by aide with his neigh
bor, each applauding the j same sentiments
and "each agreeing to the things the speak
ers said.
Early In the evening the big room was
filled with a lttety hum of conversation and
knots of men conferred as earnestly as
though about to go Into an Important
nominating convention.
This Is not to say that the strife of years
was never In evidence or altogether left
to the past. To the contrary, little bits
of It stuck up whenever there was a timely
opportunity, but the projections were tact
fully smothered and battered down before
they had a chance to become more than
symptoms of discontent.

corded a seat of honor. .
Dr. Foster said that the McKlnfey club
had Initiated the harmony movement which
had resulted In the meeting and he trusted
the object for which It was called would
be accomplished. He then introduced Sena
tor Millard, who presided.
"I have been a republican for many
years," said the senator. "Many times I
have been puzzled over the candidates
whom my party has nominated and some
times I have voted for some of them
against my will, but I have made up my
mind that the only thing for a republican
to do is to support the republican ticket
always, from end to end."
Robert Cowell, whom Senator Millard
Introduced as the first speaker, waa greeted
with a burst of applause. He aald that ho
looked upon the big attendance as a good
augury that the desire for harmony had
been making progress. His fervent te
mark that he hoped that never again after
the meeting would anyone hear of fac
tlnns in the party In Douglas county pro
voked the first hearty enthusiasm of the
evening. He told of the necessity for
harmony and how the understanding of Its
Importance had grown and said he was
frank In saying that among his friends In
the party the disposition was to meet
the opposition more than half way and to
concede a fair and liberal representation
on the ticket.
Wonld Prefer Another Time.
Byron G. Burbank's speech was not en
tlrely free from a discordant strain. "If
the time for holding this meeting had been
placed In my hands," he said, "I would
have selected some time following the coin
ing republican convention. However, I wan
asked to sign the call and could not well
refuse and ao am here In the Interests of
harmony." The Judicial ticket, he sul.l.
should receive the support of all repub
licans of the district, as should Judge
Barnes, all of the nominees being eminently
qualified for the positions which they
sought on the bench. He eulogised ''John
L. Webeter and praised the new primary
rules, saying that they would give the
people free and untrarameled choice In
selecting their candidates. After pledging
his support to the ticket that will be nomi
nated Mr. Burbank announced that he be
lieved In majority rule In all parties.
Then the speaker proceeded to find fault
with a Bee editorial, which pointed out
the necessity of selecting honest and com
petent men for nominations and the fallacy
of the belief that members of the party
must support and vote for men who are
neither competent nor honest, but who

Local Dealer l.ooka for Coal ta Ad
vance and Cites Other Fnel
aa Substitute.
"If any man In this part of the country
can llnd a genuine peat bug on his laud,"
said a local coal dealer, "he'll be the beat
part of the way to easy street. The coul
question has started everyone to thinking
about fuel, and I believe If people under
stood the value of peat wo would soon
know for certain Just what amount of it
Is to be found In Nebraska, western Iowa
and surrounding country. Everybody H
kicking about tho price of hard coal, and
soft coal Is about as bad this year. I don't
see that coal will be any cheaper this sea
son and anthracite never la what you could
call cheap out here. We are by no mean
certain that the labor question has been
arbitrated so that there wid be- no further
trouble; for my part I should not be sur
prised If the mines were closed down aciUn
most any time.
"Peat has figured valuably for fuel In
Ireland, Germany and Scandinavia. The
troublo with peat Is of course the water In
It, and this can't nil be pressed out; but
lignite contains water also, and practi
cally all western coal is young coal or
lignite, so that It haa ittlo advantage over
peat. You can't buy any sort of decent
coal for less than a ton, and th peat
briquettes can be manufactured for about
12. But even If the peat were for tale,
people -would jej jdt tu, takis.Jl up. -because
they've fc-ot In -the coal habit. The
stoves also would have to be a little dif
ferent." The location of peat bogs In Nebraska
and aurrouttdlng states Is still to be thor-
OUglliy ill VfBllBUltni. Iiui. nuftiij ot
university. In a took on the geology of
Nebraska, says among other things:
There is no uuestlon n'.iout the groat
quantity of peat In NWbraska. ll,id-n
mentions muny locations where it is
found. It Is also found on the tributaries
and headwaters of the Logan, fc-lkhorn
and Elue livers and on river and
other tributaries of the Hepubiuun. Great
quantities are also lWtid u ::omie county
on the Loup and on its tributaries. In
fact there is hardly a township Hi some
sections of the state that does not contain

Chicago Heara Ratlroada Will Pat V
Freight Tar Ida Becaaa af
High Wages.
CHICAGO, Sept. 25. The Record-Herald
tomorrow will nay that a movement la on
foot by the railroads of the entire country
to bring about a general advance In freight
rates, the reason assigned being the big
Increase In the wages of all classes of labor
and In the price of all materials used by the
railroads. A similar advance waa made one
year ago for the sum reason, and went
Into effect Jaunary 1, last. At that time
shippers generally protested, and It Is un
derstood that various Industrial associa
tions will combine to prevent further ad
vances. The Trunk Line association Is raid to he
planning for a general Increase In ra(a
uniountlng to 10 per cent, to become effec
tive January 1. Railroad officials say that
with the present price a decrease In net
revenues ramoU be prevented, unless
freight rata ar advanced.
