WASHINGTON, June 21. (Special Tele

west was adopted by the senate and placed
In tho agricultural appropriation bill today
providing that 10 per cent of the receipts
of the sales of products on ' forest reserves
shall be given to' the counties In which
the reserve Is situated. One-half W lo be
set apart for public schools of the counties
and one-half for good roads. Congreeeman
Marttn of South Dakota has been Inter
ested fn this matter fcnd after a conference
with the conferees of the house on the
agricultural bill' Informed "that the
conferees -'IN sustain the Seriate" amend

but will add quite sum of money
to Lawrence, Pennington and Custer coun

Flaht for Iowa Man.
Congressman Hatlgen of Iowa started In
today to make a fight against a senate
amendment In the naval appropriation bill'
which promotes certain persons over Prof.
Milton 1'pdegraff of Decorah,' who Is en
gaged as one of the professors st the
Naval academy, but on assurance of Mr.
Fobs thut the house would Insist on Its
disagreement he did not press the matter.
Millard ts Elated.
Senator Millard Is greatly elated over the
adoption 6f the lock type of canal. The
senator had' the strongest kind of assist
ance from Senators Knox, Hopkins and
Dryden, members of the' colrmlttee.
ebraskans Interested In Lewis.
Senator' Burkett has' received a number of
letters from people In Nebraska who aeetn
to think that the Postofflce department haa
been extremely unjust in Its'' treatment of
E."M. IwlsV'late president of the People's'
bank of St. Do ills, whose mall was debarred
from transmission. The People's bank,, so
called, was a mail deposit proposition offer
ing alluring Inducements to open an account
with the' "bank.."' It was not long, however,
until tho poBtofhce authorities became1 con
vlnced'that the proposition was not entirely -regular
and inspectors were put upon thQ
case, which resulted in the lasuance of a
fraud order and the disbarment of Dewls ,
and hla partners from the privileges of
the United States mall. ' I'pon the Usuunce
of the fraud order kewls sought a hearing
which was granted and at hla own request
was behind closed dutus. Whatever he was
able to bring out did nt convince the post
master general that he was conducting a
strictly legitimate business and the fraud
order stood. He then appealed to the courts
and the decision of Judges McPherson and
Vandeventer sustained the Postofflce de
partment. Senator Burkett, In view of the
apparent Interest among a number of hi
constituents, wrote the postmaster general
a letter requesting the facts In the cane
and received in reply tody six pages of a
typewritten letter explaining thut Dewla
was given every opportunity to expluln Ms
business and to show cause why the fraud
order should not stand against him and he
failed to accomplish this to the satisfaction

iween former Mayor -Iktiry Zlniman and I
former City Clerk Klbourn ' came out at
the Elbourn trial yesterday While Mr. Zlm
iii an was on the stand. Mr. Zimman tes
tified as to Kllxiurl! words and actions
during the recount of, the lallots. Attor
ney Connell took exception to- the lan
guage In which the former mayor couched
The. witness "sitjd he had demanded of
I Elliniirn at the beginning of the recount
"that he thlovt- his mayk' off'' and come
out In the open by tiling a contest himself.
In effect he charged Ellioum with starting
a contest through Mr. Sroekham. Again
In his testimony he referred" to Mr.
Elbourn as speaking "sarcastically." At
both points Mr.. Connell Jumped to his feet
and entered objection to the language.
He accused the witness of showing his
animus .toward the defendant and making
"stump speeches" mi the witness stand.
He called Zimman's language "self-serving
statements actuated by' malice." The court
ruled the object lonable language out.
Later In the cross-examination Mr. Con
"You are very unfriendly to the de
fendant,, are yoa not?" "
'I am-unfriendly; I. can't say that I am
very unfriendly."'' ' .-
"Did you not say lie- ought td be In the
penitentiary and you would gf't him there?"
"I have no recollection of saying that."
"Did you not say to, Mjss Malone, secre
tary to the mayor, .that Elbourn ought to
be In the penitentiary?"
"I don't' remember ,pf saying It to Miss
Malone. I may have said it to others."
Zlmmair Stations a Canard.
Mr. Zimnian said as mayor he stationed
Mr. Pliilllpson as a guard in the basement
of the city hall to watch the vault con
taining the ballots. .,.He had done this after
a conversation with Mr. Grecnleaf. The
guard was stationed at S.30 Sunday night.
He said when the changes In the ballots
were llrst discovered Elboutn did noncon
cur. He also testified Elbourn did not de
mand that the recount 'continue, ufter 'tllc
alterations were discovered until bis nk
torney, T. X Mahnncy, Juid said' the bal
lots should all be counted.
Lee Grier 'testified, '.he ,had' first heard
there were Irregularities In the count Sat
urday morning. He saw Elbourn that
night In the' Budwelner saloon, on Dpuglaa
street, but Eibourn .did not say anything
about . the irregularities.
Another tilt between Mr. Connell and the
witness came, when Sani K. Greenleaf went
on. the stand. . Mr. . GrectuVaf sakl . when
the changes In the vote were first dis
covered Mr. Elbourn whistled and said:
"A few. more like that' and I will be all
right."'.. , '.-sl-'
The- witness saUt-- Elbourn ""admitted"
thaf It looked like 'sOine. changea'had been
made. , Mr. ConneifitUJeoted to -his use of
the word "admKt-i-d'v -and tried to get him
to use the word "Said"' Instead. 'Mr.' Green-
leaf insisted, on using' the first' expression.
The witness also testified as to the con
dition of tha Vault--tit- which the " ballots
were stored and th'detalls 'of.'movlng the
boxes from orw yehii jo the other..
Watchman-Lime it .-stifled he had visited
tho city clerk's office " .at frequent Inter
vals, during the nights- of the period be
tween election avid the recount. He had
found Mr. Elbourn. In his office only once,
and that was Friday night, between 7 and
8 o'clock. - , . .
The state, has practically concluded Its
case and will rest at the beginning of this
morning's session. It Is believed the case
will go to the Jury tonight. '

In one of the boxes' -was also produced In
evidence. ; !.,'.',,
The first witnesses were members of the
election board - lit the First precinct of the
Second ward, who tetyfled merely. as to the
regularity of the election. W. B. Stockham,
one .o - the- defeated candidates for the
nomination for city clerk, wasf -called to
the "stand. H. flrst asked for' 4 .recount
of .the ballots , .the -Monday following
the - primary 'and shortly afterward 'Mr.
Elbourn and "Mr. Broatch began contests.
He said he had beep, .led to make the con
test by rumcrs of crooked work In the
First and Second wards. . Saturday 'night,
he 'said, he war called, to the' Uudweiser
saloon by I.ee. Grier,. and when ,he got
there Grier and others told hlifj there had
been'crooked work In' sopie of the precincts
on election day and ugested a recount.
William Nesselhous, who was understood
to have considerable money up on the rela
tive positions of Hennliifc-s und Broatch,
was also there. , . -
Elbonrn Demanded Keeoout.
Oil cross-examination Stockham said he
did not fo Into the contest In the hope nf
winning put hjmself, but he did not- think
Hennings had beaten Broatch and that Was
why, he wanted the recount. Elbourn, he
said, came Into the saloon while he was
mere ancr lert at the same time he did,
about midnight, and took the same car
home. He also le.tifled tiiat Elbourn had
demanded a recount after it was found the
votes had been tampered with, saying the
condition reflected on him or his employes
and he wanted an Investigation made.
Dan Butli-r, present city clerk, was
brought back for the purpose of identifying
the ballot boxes and bailota. Objection to
thin part of his testimony was made by
the defense on the ground he w;is pot in
office at the time and did .not know any
more about U than any oilier citizen.
Byron G. Burhank, attorney ior Sam K.
Greenleaf at the recount, wus called to. the
stand. He testified whtn the condition of
the ballots wa f(jnd Elbourn said he
would not take a nomination under the
circumstances. He then moved to dismiss
ElUourn's contest, but Mr. Elbourn ob
jected and Insisted on a recount of all the
ballots. He said if the board refusitl to
go on ne would mandamus them to com-
i plete the canvass. Mr. Fink and m,- ,.,.

JAQUITH ENDORSES STICKNEY
ays I hlcafto Ureal Western Presl
drat la HUhl on Klevatlna
A. H. Jaqulth of th Omaha Grain ex
change endorsed the attitude of President
Stlckney of the. Great Western on the
proposal to abolish the so-called elevation
charges. In an Interview yesterday he said:
"Although some of the statements made
by Mr. Stlckney could be combated, snd
I also the Peavey contract Is, I believe, the j
I only legitimate contract that hss ever been
made by grsin men with, any railroad com
pany. Mr. Stlckney could have cited tases
where It was afterwards proven thnt other
elevator concerns were receiving 3 cents per
li"i pounds Instead of 1 cents, the basis of
the Peavey contract. I will state further
there Is no doubt but the making of the
Peavey contract caused a 1.5inrt-bushel
elevator to be erected, here at a time wheu
there was practically no. grain business at
Omaha, and 1 will state further thnt I
know absolutely the elevator would not
have 'been built had It not been for the
contract entered Into between Mr. Peavey
and the railroad company.
"I do not care to enter Into any lengthy
discussion of this matter, but I desire to
say that the underlying principle and the
fncts as set forth in the speed) nf Mr.
Stlckney ara correct, snd there Is no doubt
In my nflnd but every transfer charge it
Istlng at present should be abolished, and
let hustling ability instead of favoritism
rule the business of this country. The
a-reat detriment to Omnha and to all In
terested in the grain trade has not been
the payment of this 1'; cents elevation
charge, but the abuses growing out of Jhe
same, wherehy certain favored parties,
linked' tn a chain of common Interest, have
succeeded In collecting two or three eleva
tion charges on the same grain.
"As to the result on the Omaha grain
market Of the action abolishing these trans
fer charges, and as to the effect on the
Omaha Grain exchange (the Interest of
which I have deeply at hearo I desire to
go on record now as saying that if every
elevation charge, rebate, drawback, or
whatever name you choose to call It, shall
be done away with at every terminal point,
as I think It will be. Omaha will then
stand upon its own merits, which are ad
vantageous, and the active business prin
ciples of the Omaha Grain exchange would,
I thoroughly believe, double the grain busl
ness here within the next twelve months
to what It would be If present conditions
were allowed to continue.
"I know of several enterprising young
and active grain firms that have looked
over the field nt Omaha, which will, I am
sure, under the conditions which will pre
vail, as soon as the elevation charges are
done away with, locate here. I ;no of
others already here that have been nearly
'faded' since the organisation of this ex
change, not on account of the Peavey con
tract, but of the abuses growing out of It,
which enabled others to get much more for
grain than we could."

WASHINGTON, June 21,-The space In
front of the- speaker's desk of the house
today resembled a small section of a deli
catessen store ami a corner grocery, with
cereals. Jams. Jellies, tins of peas, tomatoes,
Porn, bottles of whisky and wine. Imported
sausage, brandied cherries and other edibles
and drinkables scattered over two tables.
To complete , the picture there were a
standard scales .with weights, a graduate
and a funnel. These were used to demon
strate the contention of the majority of
the committee on interstate and foreign
commerce that a pure food bill Is necessary
for the protection of the people.
The' house went into committee of the
whole for the consideration of the bill, Mr.
Mnnn leading in the discussion.
Mr. Mann contrasted the features of th
senate and house bills, remarking that It
was not the aim of the house committee
on interstate snd foreign commerce to rec
ommend legislation as to what the people
should eat or drink, but to call attention
to what they are eating or drinking.
"Medicines now on the markets adver

Most of the goods are not adultereted, ac
cording to Mr. Mann, and since the pure
food agitation, which began a number of
years ago. there has been a decided re
duction In adulterations.
"Yr-t," said Mr. Mann, "everywhere the
honest manufacturer or dealer goes he Is
met by sharp and keen competition from
adulterations or short weights."

WASHINGTON. June 21. -An under

predicted, will result In a complete agree

There are yet three points which will re

on these the conferees know the position
of their number so well that the result
may be predicted with reasonable certainty.
Of the three points, the first Is the sleep

sleeping cars will- be Included as "com

the much debated pipe line amendmtnl.
This is to lie- settled by changing the
words -"common carriers" to "allroads"

The erfert or this change will be to ex

law forbidding '"railroads" from owning
industrial properties. The senate amend

of commodities forbidden to be owned by
common carriers, will, It Is said, he re

The third point for further dlscussioa is

When consideration of the sundry civil
bill was resumed after the action on the
Panama canal. Senator Hale said that the
vote on the cu4ial bill had eliminated the
canal questloa from the appropriation bill,
thua leaving nothing In dispute hut the
traveling expense item.
Senator McCumber then argued that the
proposed Jaw would have the effect of abro
gating the anti-pass law. "If," he said,
looking at Senator Hemenway, who sat di
rectly In front of him, "the senator should
accept a pass from a railroad company, the
prison bars would be opened to let him In,
but if the president should Invite him to
ride with hlni, the law could not Inter
fere with him." It amounted to saying that
there Is one law for those who hold office
and another for those who do not, and none
for those who hold the highest office.

for enlargement of the executive Income,
