One of the Interesting talk of the last

who discussed the ''Classification of Mail
Matter," and advanced a theory to get rii
of the postofflce deficit. He said Instead
of the department handling the mail of the
other departments free a special stamp
should be issued for these departments and
appropriations made to pay for them. This
would wipe out the deficit. He believed the
head of the Postofflce department should
have mora discretionary powers and not
have to wade through so much red tape
for the answer to a simple question.

Ella Boldenow, 15 Years Old. Shot in
Home at Bloomfield.
Girl Had Been Reprimanded and
Uncle Dismissed from Place
Shortly Before Body Is
BLOOMFIELD, Neb., June lO.-(Speclal )
Ella Boldenow, the 15-year-old daughter
of H. F. Boldenow, a farmer near here,
was found dead with a bullet hole in her
head and an empty revolver lying by her
side. While her death is generally thought
to be the result of suicide there are clr
oumstances which have thrown a mystery
about the case and the coroner's Jury,
which met today, has not attempted to
say who fired the shot that killed her.
While the parents and brothers of Ella
were doing their chores about the farm
in tne early morning the smallest child,
about 3 years old, ran out to the barn
and. Informed the parents that Ella was
lying on the floor.
The parents both rushed to the house
and found the girl dead on the floor, with
a. bullet hole In her forehead and a 3S
caliber revolver lying by her side. No
apparent cause can be given by the par
ents for the act of the girl.
Girl Had Been Reprimanded.
The coroner was Immediately summoned
and after holding an Inquest, at which
members of the family were summoned as
witnesses. It developed that the k.
been reprimanded the day before by her
iainer ror being too Intimate with an uncle
who was boarding at the Boldenow home
and the uncle was told to quit the place!
The girl. It was also stated by witnesses,
appeared at breakfast apparently "happy!
as usual." but It was noticed that she
had red marks on her throat and a bruised
When asked where she got those marks
the girl answered she did not know. After
breakfast the parents, thinking no more
about the matter, went to the barn and the
boys to the field and the girl was not
seen again until S o'clock, an hour later
when her body was found.
Coroner's Jury In Doubt.
The coroner's Jury postponed its session
until a post mortem examination was made
and a verdict was rendered as follows:
"The deceased came to her death as a
result of a bullet wound fired from a re
volver by a person or persons unknown."
The question now is. Was It suicide or
murder? As no one Is suspected of the
crime It may be some time before any
light can be thrown on the subject.

Nebraska ,
Mississippi Senator Eas Bace Problem
Following; Address by Farmer Leader
of Honse of Representatives
Diplomas Arc Presented to
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Jun 10. (Special.) John
Sharp Williams' solution of the race prob
lem in the south as h gave It In his ad
dress to the graduating class of the State
university today, is Immigration of the
colored people from the congested portions
of the south to thonorth, being so dis
tributed that in no part of the country
would the negro be congested.
When the moving day comes around, he
said, and the negro Is as numerous in
Nebraska as he Is In Mississippi, Missis
sippi will be as cool In discussion of the
race problem as Nebraska is now.
Senator Williams refuted the oft repeated
statements of politicians -u others that
education 1 the ruination of the colored
race, and he dented that education was
the panacea of all ills. Some negroes had
been helped by education and others had
ben ruined by It, he declared.
Mr. Williams wanted It "distinctly under
stood that the negro I not a white man
with a black skin any more than an ass Is
a horse with long ears, or a sebra a horse
with stripes." i
The speaker reached his solution of the
race problem by a process of elimination.
He first talked of the deportation of the
negro race to Africa and dismissed that as
being impracticable, if not Impossible. He
then touched on the amalgamation of the
two races. Such a solution, he said Is
unthinkable. "It would destroy both
The negro, he asserted, had had the
same opportunity that had been given to
the white race and the public statements
that he had not had a chance In the world
Is to be decried. He described the early
coming of the white man to this country
and of his struggles and compared his
progress with the negro's work In Afrtoa.
In touching on the slavery of the negro he
said It was a result of Yankees selling the
black men to southern buyers.
Better Understanding Coming.
He asked no help from the north In the
solution of the negro question, but merely
that the "north accept what Is coming."
When the north has the negro in the same
proportion that the south has him, the
speaker felt sure that the north would bet
ter understand the feeling of the south
and there would be no difference of opin
ion regarding him.
At this time he said there are few places
In the country where the negro can go
and be received like the white man and
these places were getting less numerous
every year. The negro should go to these
places now, because a the north got used
to the negro the place will be closed to
"The negro had no initiative, but can
learn from the white man and from the
whites he got his civilization. It Is the
duty of the white man to teach him. Then
the negro may return some day to Africa
and teach his breSVn there what he has
learned. This may be the mission of the
negro race."
Mr. Williams denounced' as ''maliciously
false" the statement of orators and poli
ticians that the white women of the south
were compelled to have themselves guarded
In their homes from the negro. At least
95 per cent of the negro race of the south
is content to go along aimlessly in Its
course, harmless, though at times exas
perating, because of Its lack of Initiative.
The south so far as the speaker knew was
the only place where farm houses were
never locked at night. -
Northern people who move to the south
soon adopt the southern Idea of the negro,
though some had set a standard of treat
ment of the negro which the latter could
not live up to. Lynchlngs In the south in
proportion to negro population were not as
numerous as in the north.
Senator Williams gave some Interesting
statistic. showing the growth of the south
during the last ten years, which he said
proved a greater development than any
other country on earth save the Argentine
Republic and Canada.
Love of Sonth Stronar.
Tne southland he designated as the
"sweetheart land," for every southerner, he
said, loved his southland. This great love
for hi south had caused It people to an
swer Its every bidding frequently against
the better Judgment of the man, and a
proper understanding of this great feeling
on the part of the people of the north
would explain in a great way many of the
things which the north now seems not to

Traditions of Lone Tree.
CENTRAL CITY. Neb., June 10-(Spe-
clal.) July 6 will be a big day in Central
City and the firework will explode with
extra zest and the downpour of soft drinks
will be limited only by the supply. Not
only will the usual patriotic duties peculiar
to the Fourth be performed, but the fiftieth
anniversary of the founding of this city
will be celebrated. There are only a few
old settlers left who can remember the
first building In the county erected by the
Western Stage company at Lone Tree sta
tion on the United States mall route be
tween Omaha and Kearne-. This was the
beginning of Central City and was first
named Lone Tree from a single cotton
wood growing there on the north bank of
the Platte. The traditions of this tree will
be gathered and exploited, because emi
grants from east and west encamped in
Its shade In the days of the old trail, when
not another tree was to be found growing
on the prairie for many miles. The flnan-

Owing to the high water which pre
vailed In the Missouri river at this point
and a big washout In the road leading to
the wagon bridge across the river, all teams
from the east are unable to reach this city.
There are two roads leading to this bridge
and one Is under water and the other Is
washed out w-Viere the big drainage ditch
crosses It. This cuts off all eastern traffic
from this city save via train. The river Is
