Homestead Bill Brings Settlers.
The great Issue of freedom and slavery
was before congress In Washington. All
compronilr.es had failed, all truces had
lieen broken. The question whether these
broad prairies should be slave or free be
came one if the real Issues In the nation.
After the war. congress having granted
free homes to those who saw fit. to live In
this wild primeval waste, the first settlers,
the sturdy old pioneers, the men who had
saved the union, loaded their families Into
the prairie schtonera and dotted the broad
prairies of Nebraska with their shanties
and sod houses. This was the beginning of
permanent settlement. It, was of these that
"We cross the prairies as of old our fath
ers crossed the sea
To make the west as they the east, the
homestead cf the free."
Events began to happen rapidly: The
territory began to develop, the Union Pa
cific railroad was built, Thomas Cuming,
who niadf) Omaha the capital of Nebraska,
succeeded Francis Burt, who died eleven
days after arrival at Bellevue. The usual
hardships of pioneer life followed, but still
the tide of emigration pressed on. The
valleys of the Blue, Elkhorn and Loup
were soon sprinkled with the settlers' log
Bofore state rule came on Governor Alvln
Saunders was appointed by President Abra
ham Lincoln as the last governor of this
territory. His son is an honored member
of this legislature.
Out of this sparsely settled country two
regiments of soldiers were furnished to
the government. General John M. Thayer
and Colonel Robert W. Furnas were In
command of these regiments.
The Nebraska of today beat little re
semblance to the Nebraska of that period.

Good Chance for Annexation.
Friends of the bill which provides for
the consolidation of the cities of Omaha and
South, Omaha are receiving much encour

to puss the bill through the house. Harvey

badly wanted in the house thia afternoon
to help out a portion of the delegation, on
a general boost for the measure, but It Is
presumed his duties held him In Omaha.
Mike .Lee secured another convert to the
cause, and since the appearance of the

KANSAS CITT, March 4.-(8peclal 'Tele

of the Western Base Ball association will
not admit that Topeka is to become the
property of the Western league, the In
ference is drawn that his association Is
about to lose the best paying city in Its
After being shown a dispatch from Chi
cago stating that Topeka had been awarded
to the Western league, Shlvely acknowl
edged that President O'Neill would shortly
forward a check to cover the draft price
of Topeka and that upon Its receipt he
would call a meeting of Western association
magnates to determine what should be
done In regard to the proposition.
Following Shlvrly'e assertion that under
no circumstances would he allow Topeka
to be drafted Into faster company, today's
statement looks as If the Western asso

Since Saturday's conference at Buffalo,
O'Neill has been quoted repeatedly as hav

for some days. His acknowledgement that
he will shortly call a meeting of magnates
to consider O'Neill's proposition Is taken to
mean that there Is every prospect of To

look for Shlvely's organisation seemsL. ex
tremely gloomy, there being no equally
desirable city to take the place of To

TWO BIG JOBS FOR BURNS
Matches with Jim Pnrr and
Simmer Ahead of Farmer
This Week. -
Omaha's first international wrestling
match of Importance will be held at the
Auditorium Tuesday night hnd, Judging
from the numerous Inquiries which are
coming from all neighboring towns, the big
structure will be taxed to hold the crowd.
When Farmer Burns and Jim Parr meet
at the Auditorium the sport-loving public
of Omaha will see two men who should be
about as equally matched aa It Is possible
for a matchmaker to arrange.' Burns Is
without a peer at the catch-ns-catch-can-style,
excepting Frank Gotch. who Is a
pupil of Burns but Parr la a younger man
nnd a trifle more active, and may be able
to wear Farmer Burns out may be, only.
The wrestling game has caught on In
great shape In Omaha and will continue to
hold the publlo as long as Manager Glllan
can get the best wrestlers and matches
"If I am to wrestle at Creston Thursday
I don't know It" was Farmer Burns' re
mark - on reading the story that
he was to wrestle Matt Simmer
at Creston, la., Thursday. "But if The
Bee says so. It must be so. and so I will
wrestle Simmer there Thursday night.
Thursday nlght-let me see, I wrestle here
Tuesday night oh, yes, that will give me
plenty of , time to reacn creston. i u oe
In this careless' sort of way the old vet
eran treated the . matter. To wrestlo Hhe
champion of Kngland and wrestle a man
weighing 250 pounds, eighty pounds more
than himself, two nights later, was to mm
merely a matter of time time enough to
get from Omaha to Creston. This for
man 46 vears of acre.

If I had them," he added. "They are book
