i..i.!l.GTO.V, OoU 17i Secretary Bor.a
pnrle hu received and turned over to coii
atrvctlon board a lot of. data pertaining to
the new British armored cruisers of the
tentlon to the turblne'machlnery and upon
the report of the constructors he will prob
ably base his own recommendations to
congress at the approaching session rel
ative to new naval construction.
The construction board rejected the tur
bine machinery when, last offered for two
reasons;. First, because confidential reports
Iliad shown that the turbine a a propelling
engine' was far behind the reciprocating
. engine in maneuvering powers, one of tho
first qualifications in a battleship. In tho
acond place, the ship builders demanded
(700,000 aio re for supplying turbine engines
than 'for reciprocating engines and the
Javy department feared that congress ut
tie last anisUm might not sanction any
tajch expenditures.
Perforata are of Dreadnanght.
But recently reports have reached the de
pertinent touching the performance of the
great British battleship Dreadnaught that
have inclined the board to revise their
judgment In the case of turbines and It Is
stated at the department to be entirely
probable that such engines will be proposed
In the plana for the great 20,000 ton battle
ships, which has been submitted to con
gress by its direction at the next session.
Details of the construction of the Dread
naught, guarded as a state secret for two
years, are coming to light and they show
that the objection against the turbine on
the part of maneuvering capacity has been
overcome. This was accomplished by
equipping the big ships with four separate
propellor shafts and with two great
rudders, one behind the other giving great
power of steering. Intimations have been
received from some American ship builders
that with the experience gained in the
recent construction of merchant ships and
yachts equipped with turbines the cost of
those engines can be considerably reduced.

For the
St. Joseph Man Alleged to Hate
Swindled finite 4'oaaty.
BEATRICE. Neb., Oct. 17. (Special Tel
egramsCounty Attorney Klllen filed two
complaints In the cotmty court today
against John Sparks, the bridge contractor
of St. Joseph, Mo., charging him with
filing two spurious bills with Intent to de-
fraud the county. One complaint alleges
Sparks knowingly and with Intention to de-1
fraud filed a bill for 517.84 In the office
of the county clerk on October 5. 1904, j d
for reimbursement for the construction of '
a bridge In Holt township, which was
ordered paid by the County Board of Su
pervisors, that body believing the bill to
be true and correct.
The second complaint charges Sparks
with filing a bill alleged to be true for
t.VW.40 for a bridge In Island Grove town
ship. This warrant waa also paid by the
county. The warrant was placed in the
hands of Sheriff Trude. mho sent a mes
sage to St. Joseph ordering the arrest
and detention of Mr. Sparks until his ar
rival at that place.,
Charged with obtaining money under false
pretenses, M. F. Kearn wss brought here
from Aanamosa, Ia., by Sheriff Trude and
lodged in Jail. Recently Kearn disposed of
a stallion at Barneston to a number of
farmers In that vicinity for $3,000. He
stated that the animal was pedigreed, but
It Is asserted that the alleged pedigree was
not genuine.
Kearn was arraigned, pleaded not guilty,
and his case was set for hearing Oc
tober SO.
Philip Tlclntyre. convl. ted of separating j of spl,ndla ,)roBss, both In the matter of

his cose to the supreme court on a writ of
error, but the court to change that
and hear the case as an original appeal for j
habeas corpus. The court took the matter j
under ndvlseinent and Mclntyre was taken
back to the penitentiary.
This morning a letter was received by
Warden beemer from W. B. Laughlln say
ing Mclntyre was a desperate man and
would probably attempt to escape while
arguing his case. He Is badlv wsnted, the
letter snld, at Fort Scott. . Kan. Warden
Beemer and a deputy guarded hlrn.
After Mclntyre had made his plea to th
court. In which lie asked that his appeal
on error he changed to an original action
for a writ of habeas corpus. Fisher came
into the court room and he and Mclntyre
greeted each other cordially.
"I hope you will convince the court as
easily as you did me," said Fisher.
"That will Be impossible," responded
the convict.
May Be Rammelhart Morderer.
George Wilson, arrested here today by
Officer Schmltt and locked up as a sus
picious character, is thought by the po
lice may be the murderer of Josephine
Rummelhart. who was killed over a week
ago In Omaha. Other than to say he had
been in Omaha recently and that he ia a
waiter by trade, Wilson will not talk
about hlmaelf.
He la short and heavy built and haa
a very swarthy complexion and is about
85 years old. The man's clothes had
dried blood on them and his hat was also
bloody. He appeared to be In a dazed
condition. The man was questioned by
Detective Malone, but nothing was gained
from him of any Importance. The police
have communicated with the Omaha au
thorities and the man will be held pend
ing a thorough investigation.
Discord In Police Force.
The Lincoln police force is Just now
undergoing a severe Jolting up, occasioned
by several of the officers knocking on
each other and petty jealousies. The ex
cise board held a meeting yesterday after
noon and listened to the stories of a num
ber of the men. but took no official ac
tion. To prevent any of the officers from
getting on the outside of any liquor.
Mayor Brown has notified the saloon men
that to sell liquor to an officer means a
revocation of the license.
Railroads Befogging the Issne.
Reports from various section of the state
are to the effect the railroads have re
opened their campaign of deception regard
ing the taxation of depots and terminal
properties belonging to the roads, for mu
nicipal purposes. In an endeavor to pre
vent the enactment of such a law by the
next legislature. The railroad agents are
working overtime and It Is said their press
bureau has again been started to prove
to the people that the taxation of this class
of property locally will be to take from
the school funds of the western portion of
the state. It is the same fictitious argu
ment used by the railroad agents to defeat
the enactment of such a law during the
last two legislatures.
The railroad henchmen are pretending
the assessment of the Omaha terminals is
now distributed throughout the countlea
through which the roads run and to tax
this property locally for city purposes
would be to lessen by that much the valu
ation out In the state.
As a matter of fact, the Omaha terminals
are not taxed over the state for city pur
poses. According to a member of the
board this claim ts a delusion and a snare
cooked up to get the unsuspicloua legis
lators to vote against a bill for municipal
taxation of thla class of property. It Is
said by this member of the board that,
Instead of lowering the assessment of rail
roads out In the state to the betterment
of Omaha, the proposed law will merely
add an additional tax and will apply to
every village, hamlet and city in the etate
and will In no way reduce the assessment
and taxation for school purposes. If the
proposed change were merely a shifting
of the taxes from one place to another
the railroad would not be interested and
the fact that they are opposing It la best
proof that it stops some tax shirking they
have been profiting from.
MeGlltoa Acting- Governor.
Omaha had a governor today and It is
an even break no one there knew of the
fact. Governor Mickey Is out of the state
at Kansas City and during his absence
Lieutenant Governor McGllton lias the
reins. He was notified of the fact iate
this afternoon, but as there was no special
reason for it ho did not come to Lincoln.
Police Board Hearing
Tomorrow afternoon is the time set for
the hearing before the governor of tho
charges against the members of the Omaha
Fire snd Police Commission. The hearing
will be held at the Millard hotel at i
o'clock in the afternoon. The board mem
bers are charged with having neglected
to do their duty In that they refused to
compel the police to enforce the laws of

A meeting of agricultural societies was
