SORFOI.K WAS.TJI UttMIt FACTORY
l.oral Men Talk of Maklnc t se of
NORFOLK, Neb. Aug. S. (Special.)
There Is a growing sentiment In Norfolk
among men who gave their money toward
the establishment of a licet sugar factory
here fourteen years ago, and who now own
stock In the company which has leen given
possession of the abandoned buildings, In
favor of the re-establlshment In those
buildings of a beet sugar factory. As yet
nothing of a definite nature has been done
regarding fhe refilling of the big .plant, al
though there is a constant effort on the
rart of those in charge of the proposition
to get an Institution going which will mean
the employment of labor and Increased
money spent in Norfolk.
The fact that the farmers around Norfolk
and throughout northern Nebraska gen
erally have grown more beets by almost
threefold this year the first year that the
Norfolk factory has been out of the run
ningthan they did a year ago, when their
market was at their very door, has given
courage to the idea thnt a sugar factory
can still thrive in Norfolk, If It is properly
handled. The Idea has been evolved from
the circumstances of this season that the
beet Industry In Nebraska Is not dead, but
merely begun, and that managed economi
cally and fairly, with the right sort of
treatment of the farmers, an Institution
turning out little white granules of sweet
ness would not only be a possibility but a
prosperous proposition. right here now.
The fact that the farmers of this com
munity are raising an Increased acreage of
beets this yenr shows that they can make
money from the crop at $3 per ton. Yet the
American Bert Sugar company withdrew
its machinery from the Norfolk factory be
cause the land near here did not supply a
sufficient number of beets to operate on. It
Is evident that If the farmers had believed
they could make a profit they would have
raised the beets Just as thy are doing this
year. And If the factory at Ames can af
ford to pay a profitable rate for the beet
there la no reason to believe that the fac
tory at Norfolk may not.
It Is argued that a sugar factory whose
management was made up from Norfolk
business men In whom the farmers have
Implicit confidence and whose influence
would be a factor In gaining beet acreage
could have all the beets It wanted.

Indications of Rash fur Land
NORTH PBATTE, Neb., Aug. S. Spe
cial.) Yesterday the city's streets con
tained many strangers here Investigating
concerning the homestead land which will
become Bubject to entry on August 15 by
virtue of the expiration of the soldiers'
declaratory statements which, as has .been
tated In this paper, were filed In the In-
erests of cattlemen. Many parties secured
maps of the vacant land and have feone out
to look it over, and make their selections.
Every Incoming train brings a number of
omeseekers, who are getting on the
round and becoming familiar with the
land before the opening occurs the middle
of the month. Last night quite a number
were unable to secure hotel accommoda
tions and had to stay In the street. The
government prosecution of the peos le who
have been making war on the settlers and
fencing In the government land, are having
wholesome effect and It Is reported t-.tt
hese fences are coming down as fast as
they can be gotten away as a result of
these prosecutions, and the fact that set
tler are actually moving Into the country
the homesteaders are having less difficulty
In taking and holding land.
Five of the soldiers who allowed their
declaratory Btrtements to be used In the
nterest of cattlemen were here yesterday.
While talking to a city official of this city,
several of them admitted that thej' had
filed soldiers' declaratory statements In the
Interests of prominent cattlemen, and that
they had leases made of the land, and that
they filed their declaratory statement
which are about to expire for a. considera
tion and not in good faith.
The malls are bringing Into the land office
here many Inquiries about the land and the
land office 1 kept busy answering these.
There Is hardly any doubt but all of the
250,000 acres which will be subject to entry
August 15, 16 and 17 will be taken before
January of next year.

forgeries occurred, believed to be the same
fellow, who posed In Omaha as G. W.
Graham, and wired to the bank In this
city for 335 and MO In two successive day.
The money was forwearded and a receipt
given the bank by the Western Union Tel
egraph company for the same. It was
found that Mr. Graham was not In Omalta,
and had always been at his home north
east of the city.

Become Faatldlona nnd Knter
From the dark recesses of the county Jail
a mighty wall has reached the federal
building because of the treatment govern
ment prisoners are receiving.
During the last few day a number of
prisoners mnnaged to get to the ear of
I'nlted States District Attorney Baxter and
he has turned them over to the office of
the I'nlted States marshal, who is In
charge of the prisoners. Wednesday one
of the prisoners said the fare furnished him
was not fit to eat.
"We frequently get such complaints,"
said Deputy Matthews, "and when the mar
shal gets home we will look Into them. In
many Instances I know tho prisoners ex
pect too much Just because they are I'nlted
States prisoners. Recently I sent up a suit
of underclothes which cost $1 to a prisoner
and they came back with the statement
that the prisoner would not wear such
cheap stuff. We find as a rule the prisoners
kick no matter how well they are treated.

MANY SECTIONS OF PROJECT PASSED
Greatest Trouble Come Over Per

(rented to Adtlse
STrTETERSBl Rli, Aug. S.-fi:45 p. m.
The emperor's counsellors today resumed
at Peterhof the consideration of the na
tional assembly project penetrating deeply
the nature nnd extent of the representa
tion to be granted. The problem of ac
cording a voice In the proposed assembly
to all classes and interests without giving
unduo weight to the representative of the
uneducated peasantry, comprising 67 per
cent of the whole population, nor throwing
control of the assembly Into the hands ot
demagogues and agitators, Is one of tho
crucial points of the whole system and Is
cause for the greutest perplexity, both to
those who drafted the original Boullgln
project and to tho ministers by whom It la ,
to be revised.
Thirty-eight sections were conldered at
Tuesday's session, but these were unim
portant in comparison with the topics now
Though no detail of the discussion of
Tuesday have appeared In print, seyeral
papers comment on tho extreme Impor
tance of the Peterhof conferences and basa
on them great expectation of a' brighter
future for Russia.
The discussion on the question of the
assembly lasted until nearly 7 o'clock In
the evening. The members of the commis
sion returned to St. Petersburg without
having finished their consideration of the
project. Tomorrow, which i the name
day of the dowager empress, is a, gen-
eral holiday, and all the high functionaries
will go to Peterhof to offer their felicita
tions. The Wltte interview printed In this aft
ernoon's paper were received too late for
editorial comment, but the dispatches tell
ing of the welcome accorded Russia's chief
plenipotentiary have created a favorable
Impression In all quarter.
