LINCOLN, Oct. 7. (Special. Attorney
General N orris Brown today said that he
believed the best method of coping with
the evils which have been exposed In the
New York Investigation is for congress to
enact a maximum rate law, baaed on
reasonable calculations as to the average
expectancy and rates of Interest. He says !
that the Insurance cornoratlons are auasl-
public in their nature and they are sub- I
ect to control to prevent the exaction of
uniiiio r.i.a in.iunHn. i ho nmnoul to re- I
autre the use of a uniform or standard
policy as a precedent for state Interference
with the freedom of contract between the
Insured and the Insurer. He does not be
lieve In th Idea of state Insurance sug

The public Is paying entirely too much

He says that she was there about a month

whether or not In placing the girl in the

The friends of Elmer J. Russell, a Boone
county man. wh- has served two of a
t.n Tearg- sentence for Incest, have filed
numerous affidavits and statements with
Governor Mickey In support of an appllca-
tlon for a pardon In which they allege
that he was convicted In pursuance of a
conspiracy between the wife and the daugh-
ter, Nora Russell, the complainant, to
get rid of him In order that his property
might be enjoyed by the family and the
wife and mother left free to continue her
liaaon with a man named Pharmelee, with
whom she Is alleged to be living In Okla-
Such persons as Sheriff Loran Clark and
seven members of the Jury which con-

court because they have to go to Omaha

on that tribunal takes them away from

the necessity of going to Omaha to search

while driving to his home from North Bend
last evening. His body was found this
morning under the wagon box at the side
of the road about four miles north of North

were a quiet safe team. The road, which
Is a grade across the Platte bottoms, was
In good shape at the place where the ac

that he had evidently started to turn out
and that the horses had then turned
sharply to the right, throwing the wagon
bottom-stde-up in the ditch with the un
fortunate man crushed Under It. The team
had evidently become frightened at some
thing, possibly a passing automobile,
though none was known to have been In

One Candidate for Sheriff f Polk
OSCEOLA. Neb.. Oct 7. (Special Tele
gram.) The first grand Jury In twenty
years In Polk county Is now at work and
the result of a matter considered by thst
body yesterday Is the resignation of J. N.
Rlckel of Stromsburg as candidate for
sheriff on the republican ticket.
The matter presented to the grand Jury
dealt -with the action of Mr. Rlckel some
time ago when a set of harness was stolen
from a woman In Stromsburg. Rlckel
played the part of detective and found the
harness In the possession of parties who
had theretofore been considered above sus
picion. Desiring to avoid scandal It was
suggested that the matter be "hushed up."
A Stromsburg attorney advised Rlckel that
the course could be legally followed and
the woman offered to refuse to prosecute
on payment of $100.
Rlckel then went to the parties who had
the harness and told them that the matter
would be dropped on payment of I2y. The
day being Sunday a check was written for
this sum and the next day was cashed by
Rlckel. who Indorsed It in the usual form.
He later paid the woman $100.

up before going to work. When It came
time to retire young Harnett told hlra his
mother kept boarders and Johnson em
braced the opportunity" to enjoy a good

wealthy to go to work and established
headquarters for the day at Sherman

beer all day and evening. About 10 o'clock
Tuesday evening ha and Harnett started
for the hotel again, but Johnson says
Harnett took him west of the saloon In
stead of south, and after they had gone
a couple of blocks Harnett stepped be
hind him and dealt him a number of blows
on the head with a billy or club of, some
kind, knocking him down and then kick
ing him In the face, which his 'appear
ance corroborates. Harnett asked him
where his money was, and In a semi-conscious
condition Johnson told him if he
would keep, on looking he would find It In
his -trousers pockets. Johnson, with his
face besmeared wifb blood and cut in sev
eral places, and both eyes swollen shut
and black and blue, lay where he iwai
knocked down until morning, not knowing
where he was. In the morning he went
back to the saloon, washed up and related
his troubles and was sent to this place to
seek consolation by the process of law

Views Hissed by the
Governor Charles W. Bartlett, Boston.

Secretary of State Henry B. Little, New
Treasurer and Receiver Oeneral Daniel
J. Doherty, Weetfleld.
Auditor P. J. Ashe, North Adams.
Attorney Oeneral John T. Leahy, Boston.
BOSTON, Oct 7. General Charles W.
Bartlett of Boston was nominated by the
Massachusetts democracy for governor.
There were no contest, for any of the
place, on the ticket
The only ripple of discord during the day
came upon the nomination by the conven
tion of eighteen members at large of the
state committee. Daniel T. Toomey of I
Springfield made an unsuccessful attempt
to have the convention decree that here
after member, of the state committee be
elected directly by the people at the sena
torial and congressional conventions. Mr.
Toomey charged that the democratlo state
committee as at present constituted did not
represent the democratic voters, but was
Instead a close corporation that dictated
the party policy and candidates.
No Contest for Governor.
Up to the time that James E. Cotter of
Hyde Park arose to place before the con
vention the name of General Bartlett as
the gubernatorial candidate tt was believed
that there would be a contest. Former
Mayor John H. H. McNamee of Cambridge
had announced that he would make a
struggle for the honor of leading the party
In the coming campaign. To the nut-prise
of the convention, however, Mr. McNamee
did not make any contest, but seconded
General Bartlett'. nomination.
The platform adopted declare, for a re
vision of the tariff and the free admission
of coal. Iron, lumber, hide., wood pulp
and other raw material.; tt commend, the
"diplomatic courage and sagacity of Pres
ident Roosevelt in aiding to end the war
In the far east; call, for state supervision
of Insurance companies and recommend,
municipal ownership of public, utilities.
ryan Platform Hissed. .
Delegate Watson of Boston offered a
substitute platform, which was overwhelm
ingly voted down. During the reading of
the substitute the convention was in an
uproar, many delegate, endeavoring to
drown Mr. Watson's voice. The convention
was Interrupted with hisses and jeers, but
as he several time, announced that he
would read the substitute if It took all
night, he was finally allowed to proceed.
In response to an Inquiry from the gallery
as to the author of the platform he stated
that William J. Bryan was the author.
The substitute reaffirmed the financial
velws of Mr. Bryan and advocated munici
pal ownership and federal control of rail
road rate, and of great Industrial corpora
tions and Insurance companies.
Just before adjournment General Bart
lett and Mr. Whitney entered the hall and
were given a tremendous ovation. Both
made brief addresses. General Bartlett
closed by saying In referenc. to th. No

NEW CONSUMPTION REMEDY
Prof. Bearing; Creates Considerable
Attention by a Statement
Made In Parle.
PARIS. Oct. 7. At the closing session of
the International Tuberculosis congress to,
day Prof, von Behrlng made a. statement
relative to his new curative principle for
tuberculosis. It was decided to hold the
next congress at Washington In 19us.
Prof. Behrlng's statement attracted much
attention. Distinguished medical men from
many countries occupied the platform and
filled the salon of the grand palace. The
In the course of the last two years I
recognised with certainty the existence of
a curative principle completely different
from the antl-toxlne principle. This new
curative principle plays an Initial role in
the operation of the Immunity derived from
my bovo-vai-elne, which has proved effec
tive against animal tuberculosis during the
last four yeara. This curative principle re
pose, upon the Impregnation of the living
cell, of the organism with a substance
originating from tubereoee virus, which
suustauce I designate "T. C."
Prof. Behrlng then gave a lengthy, tech
nical description of how "T. C " waa In
troduced Into the cellular orgailsm and
..14 It had already gives marked result
in the treatment of animals. He expressed
the confident belief that his researches
would permit similar curative results in
humans. He added that he was unable to
say how soon positive results would be ob
tainable, but he felt as certain that these
result, would be attained as when he first
announced his discovery of a new method
for treating diphtheria.

to them, the absolute inability of the gov

Brodrlck, as might have been expected. Is
being made the special target of their re

that the prime minster, who retains him In

actions, are equally responsible. But even
Mr. Brodrlck'. blundering might have been

Foreign Office Work. Slowly on Pro
posals for Trade Treaty.
BERLIN, Oct. 7. The making of a new
trade agreement between the United State,
and Germany is beset with so many diffi
culties on both sides that the conviction
exist, at the Foreign office that the ques
tion cannot be disposed of between now
and March 1, when the nevjL German tariff
with Its modified reciprocal treaties with
European states comes Into effect. Con
sequently there Is no particular haste In
the second section of the Foreign office,
which la dealing with trade subjects, to
put Germany's proposals to the United
States Into final form. They probably
will not be presented for several weeks.
The Impression existed here until recently
that President Roosevelt would send a
commission of experts to examine the sub
ject from the German point of view, but
as Washington has not yet sent a com
mission It Is still desired that the pres
ident send a representative of the American
government to whom may be explained
the various part, of the questions by the
German government tn a way scarcely pos
sible through correspondence. It Is be
lieved at the Foreign office that publlo
opinion In the United States Is exaggerated
concerning what Germany will ask of the
United States. It Is added that Germany',
proposals will really be moderate and may
be satisfied without especial changes In
the American tariff system. An agreement
It I. thought may be arranged between
the United States and Germany, and thl.
Is, It Is added, within the president', pow
ers. On thl. aide, however. It is necessary
to submit such an agreement to the Reichs
tag, as changing the customs Is beyond
the power, of the executive. '

a few years ago. the movement would be
wrecked. The present and Immediate ob
ject of the party wai to drive the govern
ment out of office. With regard to redis
tribution, Mr. Redmond said that while In
the first stage, of the struggle he felt
bound to say that he was 'quite convinced
that the government would make a further
attempt, and that the attempt would be
successful beyond all probability of doubt
if the government was confronted In Ire
land by a divided and weakened, Irish
nationalist party. A. for the future they
would in all probability succeed In driving
the government out of office before long.
What then, he might be asked; and h
answered that the future should depend
upon the event, developed In the future.

out of the 16,000,000 recently withdrawn

the shipment to America grew out of
Thursday's statement of the Bank of
France, showing that the gold balance had
fallen during the week from 5?,tJ4,4 to
&87,9M.3a. This unusual fall of K433.1U
attracted the attention of the Bourn,
where It was attributed to the needs of the
monetary situation In London. When the
London banker, said they had not received
any of the French gold, the deduction wa.
attributed to shipments to the United
State. However, Lazard Frere., who is
the chief shipper, has not shipped the
amount referred to and I. not aware of
