the crisis between Norway and Sweden.
In the flmt chamber the report waa adopted
In the second chamber the recommenda
tion In the report regarding negotiation
for a dissolution was adopted unanimously,
but there was some objection to the pro
posed loan of 326.000,000 to meet the new
conditions. About a score of member
moved against the loan, the socialist-democrat
leader, Herr Brantlng, pointing out
the danger of militarism and declaring that
the proposed loan was contrary to the
peaceful spirit of the recommendation to
negotiation. It was a dangerous precedent,
he said, for Sweden never heretofore had
borrower' money for military purposes, and
he feuied Norway would regard It in the
nature of a threat of war. This view was
contested by other speakers, who pointed
out that the Riksdag by its unanimous ap
proval of the condition of dissolution had
voiced Its willingness to dissolve the union
and its desire for peace, both In the pres
ent and In the future.

delegates, representing the leading forces
of the Zionist movement throughout the

delivery of addresses of welcome In behalf
of the city. Max Nordau pronounced an
eloquent eulogy In memory of Dr. Theo

Inflicted by Will Miles, a
Negro, at Large.
Harry R. McGechln. a laborer employed
at the melter, received wounds from a
rasor In the hands of Will Miles, a negro,
during a fight In front of the Cambridge
hotel about 7:30 o'clock last night from
which he died at the ClarKson hospital In
less than two hours after the affray took
Miles and McGechln had quarreled over
a woman and during the debate Miles drew
a rasor and slashed McGechln across the
face and neck. Inflicting wounds on the
left side of the neck which caused his
death. Mile ha not yet been arrested,
but la well known to the authorities.
Although the police were notified Imme
diately after the cutting had been done the
wounded man received no surgical atten
tion for nearly an hour after he was cut
Surgeons Langdon and Willis were both
absent from the station and effort to lo
cate Dr. Ralph were fruitless for a time.
He was finally found, and after giving tho
wounds temporary dressing, had the man
taken to the Clarkson hospital, where ho
died soon after arrival.
Mardercd Man an Ex-Soldler.
McGechln has been living at the Cam
bridge hotel only three or four days and is
not very well known by those who have
seen him around the office. It Is known
that he Is employed at night as a laborer
at the smelter works and has been there
for several months.. Trior to going to work
there he was a private In Company E,
Twenty-second Infantry and waa stationed
at Fort Crook, and about five months ago
he received his honorable discharge. His
parents live In New York state.
Florence Fleck, the woman about whom
the two men quarreled, lives at the hotel,
and states that she knew nothing of the
dissensions of the two men until she saw
McGechln lying on the floor of the hotel
office with blood pouring from the wounds
In his face and neck.
Bertha St, Clair, who lives at the Cam
bridge, was tho only witness to the fight
that could be located. She waa arrested by
Officer Dan Baldwin and Is being held as a
witness. Florence Fleck Is also at the sta
tion being held as a state witness.
Captain Mostyn detailed Detectives Pa
tullo and Horne and Officer Dan Baldwin
on the case, officers who are acquainted
Casts of the Quarrel.
It Is reported to the police that the Fleck
woman and Miles had been living together
for some time up to about three months
ago, when McGechln came on the scene
and Miles accused him of alienating the
affection which the white woman had borm
for the negro. Yesterday Miles wrote turee
notes to the woman begging her to come
back and live with him, and when Mc
Gechln returned home lute In the after
noon the notes were shown to him. When
the two met In the ex-enlng the quarrel re
sulted. Miles ha been working In one of the
packing houses In South Omaha and !s
known as a man with a bad temper and
very quarrelsome. He Is well known to the
police, having been arrested several times
for petty thievery. Telephone messages
hare been ent to Flattamouth, Nebraska
City',' Lincoln, Fremont and other" nearby
towns, and all the outgoing trains are be
ing watched vigilantly in the hope of lo
cating the fugitive.
McGechln is not unknown In Omaha police
annals. He was sent to the penitentiary
from here for a one-year term and ha
been out only a short time. He was con
victed of stealing elevator fittings from
the Dellone hotel building.

ST. PETERSBURG. July 27. The sub
stance of the interview in New York with
M. Sato, spokesman of the Japanese peace
envoys, on the position of Japan In the
peace negotiations was reproduced In th
paper here and paased almost without com
ment, only the Novoe Vremya Indulging In
a sarcastic fling, saying that "Japan ha
conducted the war quite economically, only
a million a day, but she had better present
the bill to those who are furnishing the sin
ews of war and not to the country upon
which the war was forced."
A supplementary statement specifying
the cession of the Island of Sakhalin and
fixing the amount of the Indemnity for th
coat of the war contained no surprise and
caused but little flurry except In circles
directly Interested. The bourse was not
The Vle!v?mostl takes the occasion to di
rect sharp criticism at the visit of Secre
tary of War Taft and Miss Roosevelt to
Japan and complains that the moment for
the trip waa tactlessly chosen. The paper
adds that the efforts to prove that the visit
to the land of the rising sun is devoid of
political meaning is "childlike."
The war party Is again making headway,
drawing capital from General Llnevitch's
optimistic telegrams, one of which with the
emperor's reply declaring that the misfor
tunes of war have not shaken his belief
In the courage and devotion of the army,
and containing a glowing wish that the
troop may bring the war to a happy con
elusion, is published in all the papers.
In diplomatic circles a general feeling of
surprise Is professed that Japan has shown
her cards to such an extent before the
meeting of the plenipotentiaries. There Is
no unity of opinion regarding the bearing
of tbe Interview on tho prospects of peace.
It Is realised that much will depend on
the extent -to which M. . Wltte ha been
instructed to push opposition to the pay
ment or an indemnity. Though on pro nil

has been Instructed to refuse absolutely th

M. Wltte. the chief Russian peace pleni
potentiary, who la a passenger on th

what annoyed at th delay, th Russian
peace party being already late when com
pared with the Japanese.
The Russians were most Interested In
reading th pros dispatches describing th
arrival In New York of Baron Komura
aad his party and expressed th hop that
the Jap-inese condition would be really a
moderate as set forth m the dispatches re
ceived here.. Owing to lack of accommo
dation at the hotels some of the passen
gers of the Kaiser Wllhclm der Gross
were compelled to spend the night on board
North Oerman Lloyd Steamship company
tugs. In sleeping cars at the railroad sta
tion, and e-n on th pier.

M. Wltte's family accompanied him on
board the steamer, where lie was greeted
by Captain Cuppers and received his mall

taking leave of his family M. Wltte said,
smiling: "I hope to Teturn soon."
The fog having somewhat cleared away,

Capitalists Getting- Bnsy.
BERLIN, July 27. In view of the proba
bility of an early peace between Russia and
Japan, the terms of which will Involve tho
payment of a very heavy Indemnity by
Russia, the financiers of Europe have been
holding conference to the end that the
peace Indemnity may be paid without seri
ously disturbing the finances of the world.
The Mendelssohn, the Berlin bankers who
have been for many year the representa
tive on the continent of the Russian gov
ernment and who have negotiated many of
the Russian loans, have formed an alliance
with the Rothschilds In respect to the mat
ter and have hold communications with all
the leading financial institutions both on
the continent and In Ungland. They are
about to send their representatives to New
York with a view to enlisting the co-operation
of the larger financiers of the United
States. It Is likely that a Russian loan for
the purpose of paying the Indemnity will
be scattered and that a considerable por
tion of It will be taken In the United States.
J. P. Morgan, after having conferred with
a number of financiers of England, Is sail
ing today for New York.

South Omaha Man Knocked from

To be hit In tbe head by a locomotive
and not know it Is an experience that
comes to but lew men. That novelty has
been enjoyed, however, by William Green-
hagen of South Omaha, and he lives with
six scalp wounds as a witness of the
casualty. Greenhagen was returning to
his home from Blieely at 12:30 Wednesday
night. When walking along tho track near
Sheely he was hurled several feet out In
the right-of-way. The first he knew subse
quent to this accident was at 6:30 Thursday
morning, when ho regained consciousness
after being prodded several times by some
parsons who saw him 'ying beside the
track. He and those who found him could
figure out no other theory than that he
was struck by an engine. He was taken
to his home, badly hurt.

SEVERAL REASONS ARE IN SPECULATION
Reported He Will tee Moffatt a
" Well as Look After Tunnels
Through Merra Kevada
Th coming of E. H. Harrlman to the
west at this time la a matter of much In
terest in railroad circles. Mr. Harrlman
belongs to that class of men who somehow
do not take the publio Into their confi
dences, hence It Is not generally known,
from the lips of Mr. Harrlman, Just why
he Is making a special trip from New York
to the Pacific const now. But conditions
offer some mighty good suggestions. Kali
road men who are wont to speculate on
such matters think they see enough out fn
this western country to Interest the great
magnate to the extent of calling for a per
First and foremost this Is no secret he
ha projected the construction of five great
tunnels through the Sierra Nevada moun
tains dividing California and Nevada and
taking the place of the forty-one miles uf
snow sheds which protect the Southern
Pacific as it traverses the great divide.
Theft snow sheds long have been an eye
sore to E. H. Harrlman.
"My next big Job Is to abolish those snow
sheds and bore a big hole through those
hills," said the railroad king to a party of
newspaper men on the occasion of his trip
to the west when the Ogdon-Lucln cut off
was opened and dedicated.
And now that work is In progress. So
that Is one reason why Mr. Harrlman is
What About the Ban red rot
"Who controls the Salt Lake-San Pedro
rond?" railroad men are asking these days.
While It Is generally accepted that Sen
ator William A. Clark, Just ordered to
Europe to recover his health. Is the power
behind the throne, there is substantial
grounds In railroad circles for the state
ment that the Harrlman people own 61 per
cent of the stock of this road and 61 per
cent gives control. Be that as it may the
Union Taclfic is running Its trains over the
San Pedro from Salt Lake as a short cut
to Los Angeles and the Interesting point
which railroad men are trying to settle Is,
"If Harrlman docs not control this road,
why not, since it Is a direct competitor of
the Southern Pacific, beating that road
Into Los Angeles and southern California
by several laps?"
Perfection of certain plans for the Im
provement of conditions on this new road
is taken as another object attracting Har
rlman to the west.
To Meet D. II. Moffat.
Rumor has it that Mr. Harnman and
D. H. Moffat have a conference scheduled
at Denver, the subject of which will be tho
future of the Moffat road building from
Denver to Salt Lake. Whether it is true
or not that the Goulds have a controlling
Interest In the new Moffat line, railroad
men of good Judgment adhere to the theory
that It benooves the Harrlman Interests
to get In on this proposition if they can,
and if not prepare competition which will
make It hard for the Moffat people to gain
the whip hand at which they have aimed.
The road, as projected, goes on a bee line,
almost, from Denver to Salt Lake and there
an interesting question arises, "How much
tartrer wost will It extend?" It might go
on to San Francisco and there is a great
deal of talk that It -will do this. In that
event Mr. Harrlman would have another
competitor of potential strength.'
The exact time of Harrlman' arrival
In Omaha t not known at Union Pacific
Electric Line Project.
Incidentally, since his retirement from
the board of directors of the Harrlman
rbads, E. H. Huntington, owner of the
street railway system of Los Angeles, has
bought Redondo, eighteen miles from Los
Angeles and one of the most popular of
southern California beach resorts." He Is
said to have a gold mine In the traffia
which his motor lines carry to and from
this great place. Mr. Harrlman is said to
have the evil eye on Coronado Beach or
another rival of Redonda, and also to have
determined on extensive Investments In
electric line property In southern California
as a competitor to Huntington. There is no
question but that Huntington's revenues
have been materially swelled by the en
trance of the San Pedro road, and on the
theory that Harrlman controls this road
railroad men argue that he Is too shrewd
to allow the fruits of his skillful labors to
be entirely garnered by others thantilmself.
IMPERSONATOR IS CAPTURED
Man Who Sella Books as Government

Postoffice Inspector A. J. Moore has Just

on the charge of representing himself as
a government agent In the sale and dis

In the city enroute to the west to investi
gate the gold discovery which hns been
made in Wyoming by some of his agents.
"Skip" says these stories have to be dis
counted about a million per cent, but that
the claims have been mado to him so strong
that he thought they would bear investi
gating. He has owned the land for some
time and owns It yet. but a stock company

"Luna park is having the best year in Us
history, and during the heated season we
could not accommodate the crowds that
ran down to the Island to get away from
the heat of the metropolis. Hugh Thomas
hns charge of all of the electrical appli

and spends one day at Luna park and the
other at lhe Hippodrome. The Hippodrome
will -open its doors for the winter season
August 30, and then we will give the thea
ters the same merry chase we did In the
spring after our opening. A large force
of men Is at work on the Hippodrome re
modelling and making some Improvements
which we found would be beneficial In such
a large undertaking and which could not be
foreseen when building because of the mag
nitude of the show, no other In the world
equalling it In extent. We give two per
formances each day and show to from 9,000
to 11,000 people every day.
"No, we are not going to enlarge the
performance In any way, as we made It as
large as possible right at tho start, but
we know that we have a winner and that
we will get the people from the time that
our doors aro thrown open."

Protest on Marriage Show.
OMAHA, July 27.-To the Editor of The
Pee: On behalf of many thousands In
Omaha who love order and decency, I
would protest against the debasement cf
the nihrrlagc ceremony which Is advertised
as a Sunday attraction at Krug Park on
tho 3oth Inst. The moral sentiment of thig
community receives many a rude ' shock
when the Sunday programs of our "popu
lar" . summer resorts are announced. We
thought that perhaps the climax had been
reached when, a few weeks ago, tbe "bath
ing" rlrphants disported themselves at
Lake Manawa. But evidently It Is not So,
for the tolling thousands of our great city
are to witness the desecration of a solemn
rite upon which homes are built, families '
are reared and civilization conserved. Is
it any wonder that divorces are so alarm
ingly on the Increase, and the marrlago
vow so lightly held, when for mere gred
and avarice, and the gratification of mor
bid curiosity, the solemn and sacred mar
riage covenant Is vulgarly travestied?
Yours truly, , E. COMBIE SMITH. .

Rumor Bays Grain Combine is Ho
More, While Attorney Learned
A report became current Thursday that
the Nebraska Grain Dealers' association
had held a meeting In Omaha Wednesday'
and had dissolved the organization. The
story was refuted by H. O. Miller, secre
tary of the association, and M. L. Learned
of Kennedy ft Learned, the association'
"There has been no dissolution," said
Mr. Learned. "I have no more Idea that ,
there will be than I have that The Bee
will cult business tomorrow."
By those who heard and believed the
rumor it was supposed that the associa
tion had decided to' forego any advantage
which might be derived from the organiza
tion in order to prove' to the farmers of
the state that a Drain trust does not exist. '
