W. 3. Bplllman. of the Agricultural de
partment, has returned to Washington
from Bt. Louis, where lie has been at
work on the exhibit of the Agricultural de
partment at the World' Fair. An Im
mense map of the United States Is now
being constructed on the exposition
grounds under Mr. Bplllman' dire. ton.
This map will be one of the most striking
features of the government exhibit. It
will cover three acres, and will probably
be the largest map that has ever been
made. The boundaries of the states and
territories will be marked by gravel ed
paths three feet wide, and the Mississippi
nnd Missouri river will for most of their
course be represented by paths Ave fret
wide. The Atlantic and Paclflo and the
Oulf of Mexico are in place and made of
and that at a distance and In photo
graphy closely resemble water. In the
space representing each state and terri
tory will ' be raised small area of the
staple crops produced In each respective
state and territory. Large placards will
explain to spectators the kinds, amounts
and values of each crop. For Instance the
State of Illinois will occupy a space thirty
five feet wide and ninety feet long, and In
this area will be raised corn, wheat, oats
and similar cereals to illustrate the enor
mous output of each that the state pro
duced according to the twelfth census.
The space allowed Delaware and Rhode
Island, peculiar as It may seem, although
only five or six feet lontf, is ample to 11
i lustrate the agricultural productions of
these stales. Around the border of this
J huge typographical map will appear the
varioua plots allotted to the various bu-
roaus and divisions of the Agricultural
1 department. Great interest Is shown in
j the enterprise, and It will from present
Indications prove a great success.
I Politicians in Washington are discussing
j, with Interest the candidacy of Isadora Ray
i rier attorney general of Maryland, for the
I seat In the senate now held by Mr. Mc
Coins. It has been understood that Gov
ernor Smith, Senator Gorman's candidate,
would have no opponent In the event the
democrats control the next legislature, and
there was much surprise when Mr. Rayner
a few days ugo announced that he had de
rided to become a candidate. Mr. Rayner
Is well known In Washington, as he repre
sented a Baltimore district In the house
lor several term. t He also came Into pr ra-
inence as the ch'lef counsel for Admiral
, Schley In the court of Inquiry proceedings
two years ago. While there is no enmity
between Senator Gorman and Mr. Riyner,
the Utter has not been so closely allied to
Senator Gorman as has Governor Smith.
Mr. Rayner declares that there Is no per-
sonal feelings In the content so far as he
7 is concerned, and this may be taken as
a true, especially in view of the fact that he
is a member of the Smith administration.
On an issue of personal popularity Mr. Ruy
l ner would probably win over Governor
Smith, as the latter has made many ene
mies sinco he became governor. Both men
re millionaires, and the fact that each Is
anxious for the senator--hlp would seem to
Increase the chances which th democrats
already have of controlling the legislature.
; It Is Intimated that Mr. Rayner'e landtdacy
will have the support of the Baltimore Sun,
which exercises a strong Influence over the
' voters of Maryland. Mr. Rayner when In
the house was ,pne.otlthe most effective
debaters on ' the democratic aide. .' He Is
, well equipped for public apeaktng, at he has
j a. good presence and is gifted wlrh IKerary

The four bullets fired Into the body of
Cora Crissiwell, or Glenna Hynea, as she
Is better known In Omaha, - by James J
Reed, Saturday night, accomplished their
purpose at 8 o'clock last night.' The woman
died at Clarkson hospital at ' that hour.
The body was taken in charge by Coroner
Bralley, who will hold the .Inquest aome

"Is she dead, -captain?" Those were the
first words which greeted Captain Mostyn
when James 3. Reed, walked Into his office
at 10:30 o'clock last night to be Informed
of the death of the women he had shot.
When he wan told that she had expired at
s o'clock the prisoner threw back his head,
clasped his hands together and pronounced
the one word "murderer." He sat per
haps a rnute as if In meditation, when
he turned to the captain and said:
"I want no expense, no expense to the
state, only hanging."
The next question was: "You will take
me to court, won't you?" He was tola
that he could not be brought before the
court last night, but would have to wait
until this morning, when he would be ar
raigned. The man's history of hie own case, as
related last night, is as follow;
"I was passing along the street one
evening, when t chanced to look up and
see the woman sitting at the window in
her parlor. I was thunderstruck. She

her to marry me and we would go and

that would be. At lasf I found out there

Th first case to come up was that of

Th State of Nebraska against Isaac Mc
Coun. for murder 1n the first degree was
heard. On the nlKht of Sunday, July I.
19U6. William a. Merrllt was accosted by
some person upon entering his premise?
In Niobrara and was shot throuah the
heart killing him instantly. The de
fendant was known to have threatened the
Ufa of the deceased at different times and
to have left the same place In tjwn at
about the same time the deceased started
for home. The sheriff arrived on the cen
of th murder about seven hour after the
act and aearched for track of the mur
derer. Tracks of a peculiar nature were
found at different places, where a man
had been seen about the time of tire
tragedy. He further wore a pair of shoe
which made tracks which were similar to
those made by the man who followed the

FREMONT. Neb., Bept. 27-fSneclal -
Bishop Andrew occupied the pulpit of the
Methodist Episcopal church this morning.
Long before the time for the rervlce the
building was crowded, every available foot
of space being taken. The subject of hi
sermon was the doctrine of a universal and
particular Providence of Ood. Ho spoke
without .notes, and for over an hour held
th close attention of the large audience.
He said In part:

In th motive slat of mind that stands
back of It and Is Its underlying caura. A

Includes a belief in a particulate provi

"may turn on a small hinge. The doc

what man may think ore pmall things. Is
in strict accord with the reign of law and
clentlfio development, for the true scien

the theologia of His words.'
Although his subject was of en abstruse
and metaphysical nature, It wa eo re
