LINCOLN, March 0. (Special.) Gover
nor Sheldon returned today from Washing
ton more than pleased with his efforts to
obtain modifications In the government
cattle quarantine covering .Nebraska. He
will soon issue a proclamation to take the
place of the one issued several months
ago, but there will be little, difference be
tween the two decumeirt's. The dividing
line between the western division, which Is
to remain under quarantine, and the east
ern division Is the same as that outlined
by State Veterinarian McKIm and Governor
Sheldon after they had Obtained reports
from counties In regard to the existence
of scabies in cattle.
In the way of spectacles nothing im
pressed the governor more than the drill
and rough riding of the United States cav
alry at Fort'Moyer, where more wonderful
feats of horsemanship are performed than
are ever Seen In any circus or wild west
Lneutenant Governor oHpewell of Te

until the arrival of Governor Sheldon.
Patrons Ask for a Depot. ,
Joseph Marshall, a stock raiser and stock
feeder, living near the station of Darr,

commission asking that the Union Pacific
road be compelled to build a depot, stock
yards and chutes and keep an agent or

an unincorporated village eight miles west
of Lexington and seven miles east of Cozad.
Mr. Marshall says stockmen are compelled
to drive their stock either to Lexington or
Cazod to lead for shipment to the market.
He says the company has refused to pro
vide facilities that are greatly needed. In
the last twelve months there have been
fed and fattened In that vicinity more than
W cars of cattle, sheep and hogs and more

repealing were voted down by the votes of
McGovern, Brucker, Elsasser, Hansen,
Sheldon and Bedford; Zimman, Funk

for the repealing ordinances.
Under the ordinances passed last No
vember and sustained by vote of ths com

prohibited from the streets of Omaha at
all hours after April 1 and no push carts
offering fruits and vegetables for sale will
be permitted within a prbscrlbed district
Including almost the entire business , sec
tion. Zimman, Funkhouser and Bridges all
spoke against the ordinance and took the
part of the lunch wagon people and fruit
venders. Zimman declared that BOO men
would be affected by sustaining the ordi
nances and that it would be better to regu
late them than prohibit them altogether.
Funkhouser said he thought it wss unfair
to invite these people to come here and
then "shut the door of opportunity in their
faces." and Bridges thought the "little fel
lows" ought to have a right to live, for the
world owes every man a living. McGovern
of the council, F. E. 8anborn of the Com

against the wagons, declaring that the tax

GILLETTE IN ELECTRIC CHAIR
Murderer of Grace Brown Keeps His
Composure to Last
HE FIN ALLY ADMITS BIS GUILT
Last itateraeat to Balrltaal Advisers
IaeUcatea that Ho Legal Error
Waa Made la the
ALBANT. N. T., March 9f,-Chester K.
Gillette today paid tha full penalty of the
brutal murder of Grace Brown. He went
to his death In the electric chair at Auburn
prslon without a sign of weakness and with
the same lack of emotion which has char
acterised him from the day he was ar
rested charged with the crime.
Gillette appeared to have been fully rec
onciled to his fate, and In a statement
given out by his spiritual advisers im
mediately after the execution,' It Is In
dlcated that he had made a confession of
his guilt. This statement waa signed by
the Rev. Henry Mcllravy of Little Falls
and the Rev. Cordello HerrlcW the prison
chaplain, who had attended Gillette since
he has been In the death cell at the prison.
It was as follows:
Because our relationship with Chester E.
Gillette was privileged, we do not deem It
wise to make a detailed statement and
simply wish to say that no legal mistake
was made in his electrocution."
Appeal to Yean Men.
Gillette himself, so far as the publlo was
concerned, never admitted his crime. His
last words in the form of a statement,
which he prepared with painstaking care
last night, was made public after he had
been put to death this morning. In this
statement Gillette Implored young men to
lead Christian lives.
Any fear which the prison officials may
have entertained that Gillette's remarkable
composure would desert him at the last
moment waa quickly dispelled when he
stepped from his cell to the corridor lead
ing to the death chamber. His step was
firm and strong and he walked rapidly to
ward the Instrument of death. Not 'even
by the quiver of an eye lash did he betray
the least sign of emotion and at no stage
did he require assistance from the keepers
and his spiritual advisesrs who accom
panied htm In his last walk. He seated
himself in the chair, the atraps and elec
trodes were placed and within two minutes
Gillette has been officially pronounced
Mother Resigned to Ilesolt.
Mrs. Gillette, mother of Chester, made a
statement today, in part as follows:
Though it Is a very hard thing for me
to feci Chester was responsible -for Grace
Brown's death, yet It waa the wish ex
pressed to him continually by me that If
he was guilty he should say so before the
world and that In his triumphant death I
feel that God has answered my dearest
wish snd prayer. 1
And I am also so thankful to know that
he did not strike Grace Brown, as de
scribed by the prosecution. A full account
will never be given out, for he did not
strike Grace Brown..
I feel that he ahould have had another
trial, where he could have had an oppor
tunity before an unprejudiced court and
Jury and where fair statements could have
been made and considered, but my boy was
ready to go and I have nothing to say
against Governor Hughes' decision. I
think he derided what he thinks is Just,
but he has shown no mercy.
God has not failed us, and He never will
those who trust him. I trust that there
will be a strong protest against capital
punishment in this that a young life re
cently given to God has been cut off by
the law when it might have been spared
to be useful to the world In one -Df the
darkest places of that world a peniten
tiary. Strangers all through the United States
have become trlends In this hour of trouble,
and to them, through the press, we, as
parents, brothers snd sisters, wish to ex
press our appreciation and thanks. They
have helped us to bear the heavy burden
which haa fallen upon ua.
