A big delegation of Uncoln firemen
stood at the lobby rail watching the fight,
l hoy having previously had an attorney
plead (heir cause with the Lincoln mer
Plea for Wayne Normal.
Those who have been pushing the
Wayne Normal proposition through the
legislature believe that rhey are offer
ing the state a great bargain When they
offer to sell that Institution for 190,000.
The measure has already passed both the
house and the senate and It is now up to
the governor. Senator Wlltse, In -discussing
this proposition today, said: "All
northeast Nebraska asks in this matter
Is a square deal. The South Platte coun
try has the State Normal school at Peru,
the University of Nebraska, the Nebraska
Wesleyan. university, Cotner university
and Union college, all at Lincoln. Thero
is Doane college at Crete and York col
lege at York. Hastings college at Hast
ings. Luther academy at Wahoo ai.d
Junior normal schools at Geneva, Alma
and McCook. The big Slath congressional
district is pretty well supplied. It baa
the State Normal school at ' Kearney,
Junior Normals at Alliance; Broken Bow,
North Platte, O'Neill and .Valentine, and
then there is the bill that haa passed
both' houses of the legislature providing
for another state normal school to be
located s'omewhere In the Bix Sixth dis
trict. Omaha' has Crelghton university
and Bellevue. Northeast - Nebraska
only claims what is due It, when
after forty years it baa (contributed.
to the state Institutions in the South
Platte country. It now petitions - his
escelleney, the governor, not to turn a
deaf ear to lie supplication. We be
lieve Governor Shallenberger will
hearken to the cry of one-fourth of the
people of this great commonwealth In
asking for a state normal school at
Mrs. J. M. Pile, widow of the late Presi
dent Pile of Wayne college, was seen at
the Slate house this morning and In reply
to questions relative to tne Wayne insti
tution stated: "There seems to be an im
pression that the Nebraska Normal col
lege at Wayne has been .closed. This Is
a mistake. We are now having one of
the most prosperous terms during the
twenty years we have, been connected
with the schoot. Curing those twenty years
we have enro.led approximately' 17.000 stu'
dents. Were. Mr. Pile alive and In good
health we would have np desire to sell
the Institution, but hla -presencs was the
soul -and .if -of the school. I realise my
own weakness in attempting to carry on
this work. The Insurance on this school
property Is paid up to date and In advance
for three years. This Insurance amounts
to about Jl 15,100. Wrhen any person says
It can ba duplicated for WO.flOO he Is nnt
acquainted with the value of It. In my
honest opinion , we are offering the stste
an. institution worth nut, less than JljO.000
for only $.). The house committee that
visited the Institution recently was comi
posed of successful business men, con
tractors, srchltects and builders. Their
report vindicates my statement when I say
that the institution is worth at least
flop to Temperance People.
Heath bed repentance has the democratic
majority of the house in its grasp and late
this afternoon it took from the sifting com
miller. S. K. 23, by Wlltse. and recom
mended it for passage with an amendment
providing that all saloons shall close at S
o'clock at night, save the ssloons in Doug

saloons whlrh sold liquor on Sunday should
forfeit the license.
Wilson of polk county fired the charge
and stirred up the animals. He told hit,
party colleagues that, the democratic party
had prepared a saloon platform to stand
upon in tha next campaign, lie told his
fellow democrats tlist they had denied a
hearing to 6"0.U00 people who had petitioned
for county option. He made no bones about
Faying his motion mi in the Interest of
the democratic party. He recalled to the
members that they had refused to submit a
prohibition amendment and "ha demanded I
that his party do something for the tem
Thomas of Douglas county, who Is a
member of the sifting committee, told the
house that the temperance people had been
given their choice of the temperance bil s
in which they were Interested upon which

of the neighborhood to give battle to the
troops who have assumed control of the

SIOUX FALLS, a D., April l.-(8pcclal.)
"You are my brother Jim."
"And you are my sister Sue."
These brief sentences marked the re
uniting of a brother and sister Who had
been separated for a period of twenty
seven years. The principals In the Inter
esting event were Mrs. Susan Noble De
Vore, mother of Mrs. N. P. Lang, a prom
inent resident of Bell Fourche, in western
South Dakota, and James H. Noble, one
of the members of a new firm which re
cently purchased the mercantile ' business
of T. H. Gay at Belle Fourche.
The relationship between the two was
discovered by the merest accident. Mr.
Noble left his home In Huntlnfton county,
Pennsylvania, when ' a young man and
decided to try to make his fortune la
the west. A short time' later his sister,
Mrs. De Vore, also came west,' locating In
Minnesota. Several changes In location and
the long lapse of time resulted in the two
losing all trace of each other.
A few days ago Mrs. DeVore arrived at
Belle Fourche for the purpose of visiting
her daughter. Hearing the name Noble
he.r family name mentioned In connection
with one of the new proprietors of the
Belle Fourche " store, she called at the
establishment under the belief that there
was a possibility that Mr. Noble might
be a distant relative, as she, o( course,
remembered that several of the Nobles, In
addition to her brother, had come west
shortly after the war of the rebellion.
She was Introduced to Mr. Noble, whom
she did not recognize as her brother. But
when comparing notes as to the name of
father, grandfather, brothers and sisters,
Mrs. DeVore realized that she had at last
found her long-lost brother.
Then,, with . the exclamations quoted at
the commencement of this dispatch they
rushed Into each other's arms and em
braced after their long separation.
Homesickness Canse of Salclde.
SIOUX FALLS, jfl. D., Aril l.tspe-ciaI,)-rAn-investigation
into the cause
which led to the recent suicide by shoot
ing of Mrs. Bradley,- wife of Dr. E. B.
Bradley, a prominent physician, of Burke,
one of the hew towns which was estab
lished In the ceded portion- of the Rose
bud Indian reservation tn Gregory county,
shows that the act was due to homesick
ness. . .
She was a bride of only about two
months and had been homesick, and de
spondent ever since going with her hus
band to establish their residence at
Burke. Her mother had been visiting her
for the last month and during this time
she appeared more contented.
At the time of the tragedy Dr. Bradley
was asleep on a couch in the house. He
was nearly crazed with grief when ne
learned of the tragedy. It is beltevxl
that Mrs. Bradley was driven temporarily
Insane by homesickness and reluctance
to have her mother leave her. The do
mestic relations between herself and hus
band were of the most pleasant charac
ter and he fairly Idolized her. '

PIERRE, S. D.. April 1. (Special.) This

will be In portions of the state where real

be such that the sales which will be made

Father McMahon Says Flan Would
Have Worked, but for Lack
CLEVELAND, O.. April 1.-Father Willi
McMahon, who filed a petition In bank
ruptcy In the federal court here yesterday
a a result of his connection with the
enterprises of p. J. Kl-ran, president of
the, Fidelity Funding company, maintains
that If Klersn had been successful In secur
ing, all the money he needed to float his
schemes, everything would have come out
"t first suspected that Klersn's plans
were not working out well when I heard
that he was paying large bonuaes on loans."
said Father McMahon today. "He often
paid a bank a bonus of from 3 to 3l per
cent of the face of the note upon which
the loan was obtained. In on instance
he gave a banker a single bonus of SSO.onit.
When I Inquired Into these bonuses and
asked the banks why they would accept
them, if they felt that the nctes were well
secured, I received no answer.
"At no time did Kleran seem discouraged.
Last January, after the exposure of the af
fairs of hi company In December, he sa
luted me everything would come nut all
right. He even had a plan for the con
solidation of five of the largest trust com
psnles In the world, which when thef be
came one Instituting was to handle all of
his business. I believe he would hava car
ried his plan out had nut the crash came
when it did."
Attorney P. T. Brady, counsel for Father
McMahon, says .tTte inside of the transac
tions of Kleran have not yet been shown
and startling developments may be ex
pected at any time.
Father ' McMahon will hay practltally
nothing left, but his salary of $900 a year
if ' he' is declared bankrupt. Being a
priest, he has no recourse to the exceptions
