ports of Roumanla, Bulgaria and Turkey
at the mercy of the battleship's guns and
with the Inability of Vice Admiral Kruger's
squadron to interfere with Its career, ta

seised upon to prevent International com

The Admiralty, however, It should bo
stated, does not admit that the Smctllvy
has gone on such an errand, though the
officials say frankly that the Kniai Fotem

As much as Russia as a matter of prin
ciple would like to see the provisions of
the treaty of Paris closing the Dardanelles,
abrogated, the Foreign office would oppose
the passage of foreign warships as a tem
porary expedient, declaring tha occasion
did not warrant such a measure.
Foreign Minister Lamsdorff told several
ambassadors who called upon him to in

the situation was far less grave than pic

Orders have been sent to the officers of

charge after the mutineers were put
ashore, to take the- vessel to Bebastopol.
General Karakoioff has been appointed to
restore order at Odessa and his first act

At Kieff the first mobilisation trouble
occurred. The reservists attacked and
wounded several policemen and plundered
liquor shops. The Jews are avoiding serv

the refusal of the disciplinary battalion at
Kherson to obey orders. They attacked
their captain and killed their colonel. The

From the center of the city the flood
rolled to both sides of the town and the

merrymakers In the jSasa. Gaming opera

WHART0N SCORES THOMAS
Sn It Comes with Dud Grace for
Hint to Illock Proof
Judge Sears nnd a Jury are still busy with
the case In which an attempt Is being made
by Attorneys Snunders. Caley. Wharton,
Clnpp and Holmes to prove the lost Winch
will. 1'roof of the Instrument Is being op
posed by Attorneys Nolan, Gaines and
Elmer Thomas, the latter of whom Is di
rectly responsible for tile loss of the will,
as appears from the evidence so far In
troduced. During an argument on the admissibility
of certain evidence this morning Attorney
Wharton took occasion to pay his respects
to Mr. Thomas quite forcibly.
"It comes with very bad grace," he said,
"from the parties responsible for the loss
of this will to . tand up and oppose every
effort we are making to prove It."
The opposing attorney was apparently not
pleased by Mr. Wharton's allusion to his
carelessness In handling the Instrument,
which he had In charge before It disap
peared. Mrs. Amanda J. Steen, formerly Mrs.
Winch, was on the stand. She told of the
making of the will and how It had been
witnessed by Attorneys Wttpplch and Shoe
maker, and afterward by Messrs. Luther
B. Drake and Ben B. Wood In the Mer
chants' National bank. She testified that
the paper now offered In court Is a true
copy of the lost Instrument.
PEACEMAKER GETS SLUGGED
Justice of Peace la Assaulted by Men
Whose Flghtlnar Ho Sought
"I command you to keep the peace In
the name of the state of Nebraska,"
shouted Justice of the Peace Keller at
Benson Sunday night.
He was addressing a crowd of fighting
men on the public street. As usually hap
pens, the peace maker. Instead of being
blessed, was promptly slugged by the fight
ers, who paused In their struggle long
enough to hand him a pair of black eyes
and divers bruises of more or less painful
As a result of the scrlmmnge a woman
named Maud Walker was arrested and Is
now held In the county Jail on a charge
of disturbing the peace. It was necessary
to bring the prisoner to the Jail In Omaha
because on Saturday evening tho Benson
bastile was raided and made useless as a
place of confinement. A man had been
arrested at King park for. disorderly Con
duct and taken to the villa ro lockup. His
friends gathered a little later and broke
Into the building and released him. They
practically wrecked the structure.
Justice Keller Is now on the war path
after the men who slugged him. One of
them Is supposed to be a man named
Stevens, who lives- In Council Bluffs, and
the others are also known by eye-witnesses
and will soon be arrested.
PRISONERS F0RST0NE YARD
Inmate of City Jail, Nicholson In
sists, Could He Profitably
Councilman Nicholson again Is advocating
the establishment of a city stone yard in
which the labor of the city prisoners would
"A lot of broken stone snd concrete will
be needed In the operation of the municipal
asphalt plant," says Nicholson, "and I
think it would be economical for the city
to break Its own rock and let the prisoners
do it. At present city prisoners are a dead
loss to the taxpayers and do nothing, ex
cept to cut weeds occasionally. I believe
we could save money all nround by letting
them help out on the asphalt plant and I
think I shall try to get my proposition au
thorized and put In force."
Two yen re ago the councilman from the
Fourth lost out In trying to establish a city
