NEW YORK, Oct. 27.-The SOS passengers
who arrived today on the steamer Fir

vessel floundered helplessly, the sport of a
ninety-mile gale. The misadventure was
due to an accident In the engine room, a
cross-head having slipped out of place,
necessitating an abrupt s'lerxing of the

strove to make the delicate adjustment, ex
hausting every resource of shlpcraft. For
a hundred times at least the' vagrant cross
head was within a halr'a breath . of Its
home, only to be sent wandering again by
a violent lurch of the vessel.
Meantime the passengers pretty well di
vided their time between an effort to keep
themselves from too sudden contact with
their surroundings and the plying of the
captain with anxious questions. The
steamer had early hoisted the signal, "not
under control," but no other cr.ift was
sighted and finally the patience, of the
machirjiats was awarded and the Fur
nessla was but a day late In arriving.

NEW YORK, Oct. T!. The defense In the
esse of Charles W. Morse, financier, and
A. H. Curtis, former president Of the Na
tional Bank of North America, who are on
trial In the Ur.lted States court here, scored
several telling points today. The presenta
tion of evidence bv the prosecution had
been concluded before adjournment c.f court
yesterday and the d-fense before opening
Its case had made motions to have quashed
the Indictment against their clients. These
motions were denied, but after hearing ar
guments on motions to strike cut certain
specific portions of the Indictments, Judge
HotiRh ruled In favor of the defense. By
his direction, two counts of the Indictment
ore charging conspiracy and the ther
misappropriation were stricken from the
In dismissing the conspiracy charge Jidge
Hough said that, from the evidence which
had ben adduced, he could not see how
the minds of the two defendants could act
In concert. In view of the evldenra, he
said, he could rjot permit a verdict
on the conspiracy count, and, there
fore, he directed that the conspiracy charge
be dismissed. The count In the Indictment
charging misappropriation In connection
with a tfi0,OCO not given In payment for
stock purchased from Mr. Morse also was
dismissed by Judge Hough on the ground
there was no evidence of criminality. The
part of the Indictment which remains, and
which Judge Hough refused to dismiss
when application was made by counsel for
Morse, alleges false reports, misapplica
tion, over certification and the use of funds
of depositors for speculative purposes.

Reports from Otfr the State. .
Better and better grow the report re

tho message that the republican ticket will
got more than the usual party vote. Fol

from out In the state:

leaders who know the situation are ex

There haa been some opposition to Taft
among the railroad men who vote at this
division station of the Rock Island on ac
count of tho misunderst imllng they hHd at
the first of Mr. Taft's record on Injunc
tions. Taft's record being now better un
derstood, there Is a change among these
railroad employes for the better. Along
with this republicans have made some in
roads Into the democratic column among
the democratic fanners. In WM this county
gave to McKlnley majority of 275. In
J!04 Roosevelt's majority was 1,. A large
portion of this Roosevelt majority will go
back to the democrats In this election, but
thre sre democrats In every community
who will not go back to democracy and
so the republican party Is stronger here

will be of no benefit except to the states
men out of a Job. The farmers' prosperity
has been achieved under a policy dis
tinctly opposed to Mr. Bryan's views and
the continuance of that prosperity wl'l cer
tainly not be assiin'd by a change of pol
icy. During the list democratic adminis
tration the farmers of tlr's locality sold
their corn for 9 cents and their wheat for
35 cents a bushel.
There waa no solicitude felt then for the
safety of the farmers' bank accounts. Dur

administration the farmers' have prospered
as never before and not only la the demo

FORCFD OUTOF BUSINESS
Large Retail House Getting Ready
One of Omaha's largest stores located on
Farnam street near 14th, has begun to go
out of business by selling a great many of
their fixtures such aa Iron Safes, Reming
ton Typewriters, Cash Registers, Wall Cases
and Counters. It seems strange that such a
large Institution is forced to leave Omaha.
There are enough rich people In ths city to
build aufflclent buildings to keep retail mer
chants from going elsewhere. Every day
merchants tiavel from town to town looking
for suitable buildings to start retail estab
lishments. Omaha has nothing to offer In
this line. Other cities reap the benefit.
When we advertised recently that wa were
Forced Out Of Business and had to unload
this large stock, the people of Omaha and
vicinity took advantage of the low prices
at which the goods were being slaughtered.
They ceme from far and wide.
Below are a few of tho Prices that will
five you an Idea of how the goods are be
