Marvin Delore, one of the party of young
nien and boys which broke Into the Glen
cue mills snd stole some sacks which they
afterward sold, plesded guilty to burglary
Wednesday morning before Judge Troup,
and was sentenced to two snd a half
years In the penitentiary.
Only two weeks before the robbery of the
mill, Ik-lore had been acquitted of a
burglary' charge by the same Jury panel
that is now serving. Rather than go be
fore the same men the second time on s
similar charge, he pleaded guilty. It waa
Delore who sold the sacks to a Junk dealer
who afterwards tried to sell them back to
the mill from which they were stolen. This
led to the arrest of the entire gang.
County Attorney English has nollled the
case against C. K. Stephenson, who waa
charged with embezzling money from the
Jewell Tea company for which he worked.
He was manager of the local branch of
the company and It was charged he di
verted some of ths funds to Ills owa usa.
Lack ef evidence was given as the reason
for dismissing the charge.

concerning the political life of Marquis

ment Is trying to avert a climax and ths
resignations of the ministers of flnsnce
and communications hss created a situa
tion approaching a political panic. Even
those best Informed sre unable to forecast
tomorrow's developments with any degree
The consensus of opinion Is to the effect
that the present cabinet, either with double
portfolios or with possible sdditions, will
face the new Diet, which, after the general
elections of the spring, will open July C
The posts of minister of tinance and min
ister of communications were made vacant
yesterday. They were at once filled tear
porarily by the minister of Justice, taking
up also the duties of the former snd the
minister of ths Interior taking up also the
duties of the latter.
An effort Is being made to fill these va
cancies, but There Is a difficulty encoun
tered In securing the consent of statesmen
to accept the responsibility under existing
circumstances. The opposition and even
the friends of the government are sppar
ently determined to force the government
to appeal to the country.
Ks Refereace to Inatlgratloa,
There Is no reason to doubt that ths
present situation Is dua, entirely to. the
financial problem. The Immigration ques
tion Is absolutely unaffected and had noth

believed on sll sides thst ths Immigration
questions which exist with America and
Canada will be settled amicably. In fact.
since ths present critical situation devel

COLD WAVE FLAG UNFURLED

Frigidity la Hoisted la
For the first time this winter the cold
wave flag is unfurled In Omaha. It Was
hoisted en the federal building at t o'clock
Wednesday by Weather Forecaster Welsh,
who detected In the molecules of the air
what hs construed to be signs of cold
weather, or at least a temporary cessation
of the Indlsn summer.
The temperature was 24 at 7 a. in. and
falling. Colonel Welsh ssld the prospect
wss for close to sero last night, with con
tinued cold Thursday and probably a rising
temperature by Friday. 1
The change toward winter began wttli
sn attempt at snow during Tuesday night.
The cold wave Is coming from the north
west, where below zero temperatures pre
vail. Five-inch Ice Is reported on some of the
takes In this vicinity, but ths river affords
little comfort as an Ice producer thus far.
Some thin floating Ice Is reported at Bloug
City and sbove, but there Is very llttis)
shore Ice thus fsr.
The river Is at tlis lowest stage it haa
been for thirty years. The ordinary stage
of the river at this season Is seven s.nd
eight feet, but measurements taken Mon
day show a stage of but four feet - and
seven-tenths and that figure has been per
ceptibly lowered since then.
