I . 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.

(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 lapiam r isner oi tnaomn irc.ni some COOO, pleaded his own case before the su preme court this morning In the presence of a large crowd, of which a njmber were women. Mclntyre war. nrought back from Vir ginia, where he rr; arrested.

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.

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.
