of five as provided In the present law.

covering the oversight.
Daring the coming week the temperance
forces will Introduce In the legislature,
probably In the senate, a Joint resolution
for an amendment to the constitution for
state-wide prohibition. The supporters of
county option are not satisfied with the
progress being made on this matter and
have determined to put the more radical
measure before the legislature merely for
the sake of putting the members on record,
for there is no hope of securing a three
fifths vote In Its favor.
The county option bill by Representa
tive Brown of Sherman was placed on gen
eral tile from the standing committee In
the house today without objection.

former commissioner of labor, died tonight,
aged. (9. president -Wright had been a
sufferer from diabetes for more than two
years, but that disease dkJ not give him
serious trobule until after his return from
Washington on December 7. His last public
appearance was at the dinner of the trus
tees of the Carnegie Institute, with which
Institution he had been connected for some
years. He was obliged to take to h bed
four days after his return, but rallied
within a week. Still he did not leave his
room and conducted the administration of
Clark college through his secretary. This
continued for nearly two months, but ten
days ago complications set In aud he was
forced to relinquish all business and since
that time has failed gradually. Ills phy.
slclans for several days have held out no
hope for his recovery and It was realised
that death might be expected almost hourly.
The condition of coma Into which the pa

unbroken to the time of his rleath.

ANNAPOLIS, Md.. Feb. M. A fire broke
out In McDowell hall, the main academy
building of St. .John's college, this after
noon, and despite the efforts of the fire
men of Annapolis the fine building was
soon ablate. '
The Interior of the building was com
pletely destroyed, but the outer walls re
mained Intact. The brigade of midshipmen
rendered material assistance with the Navy
academy apparatus, and two companies of
United States marines were sent to the
scene to preserve order. ,
The blase ' waa confined to McDowell
hall, which was the main tnilldlng, around
which the others clustered, but some dis
tance off. No estimate of the loss can
be obtained. McDowell hall waa one of
the oldest buildings In Annapolis, having
been at one time the main building of Old
William and Mary college. It was built In
1734 of English brick and was of very heavy
One of the things that Is most regretted
Is the loss of the many class shields which
decorated the college chapel, and have been
accumulated since 19.
The fire had gained considerable headway
before It was discovered. . This was due
to the" fact that most of the St. John's
cadets, are :away on leave of absence on
account of , the approach of Washington's
birthday holiday. Just how the fire orig
inated is not known.

WASHINGTON, Feb. .-The conferees
of the senate and house on the legislative,

have reached an agreement on the item
relating to the salary of the secretary of

The list of delinquent counties is almost
Identical for both of the leading parties,
but what significance this fact may have
Is hard to fathom. From Keith, Keya Paha
and Pawnee counties, left blank in tna
table below, no word has been - received
one way or the other.
Prohibition treasurers Jiave filed reports
called for by the law lnNmt two counties.
In Red Willow county the prohibition treas
urer' admits an expense of $18.21, and In
Saline county the report filed on behalf
of this party shows an expenditure of $30.
The anti-saloon group, the county option
group and other bunches of "two or more"
political pltchforkers, are clearly concerned
with obedience to the Nebraska law against
corrupt practices. Tet In no Instance, ap
parently, have they rendered an account.
thrnus-h their treasurers, of the money
collected, received and disbursed during the
primary campaign or during the following
contest for the state offices and the legis
lature. These groups were certainly very
alert and continually busy during both the
primary and the general campaigns. They
have also been . claiming a large measure
of ctedlt for the results. The fake Thomas
letter against Governor Sheldon and the
alleged forgery committed on the near-like
stationery of the Lincoln Civic federation
cost money for printing and postage, but
r.either the Douglas county reformer nor
the Lincoln democratic masquerader paid
this money out of their own pockets. And
the most active of the Lancaster county
option advocates who claimed credit for
electing a spilt ticket In. that county com
mitted to local option has admitted In
nrint that money was raised among a few
perple and spent lwhere it would do the

today and witnessed the flights of the
Wright brothers, the AmerWan acre-pianists.
It had been generally believed that his

questioned the suitability of the aeroilune
in general offensive operations on luml,

scouting and seacoast dufenac, where It
could be used offensively with success.
- The king manifested also much Interest
