Governor Wants to Take Advantage
of Supposed Prejudice.
Clrenlar Letters Slat ,TW for En
lorsement of Eight O'clock Clos
ing! Lw Nearly t'nanlsnoo
with Big fltr Excluded.
. (From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, July 81 (Special, )-8ttc house
stenographers appoints by Governor Shal
lenberger and others employed by him were
kept busy yesterday mailing out hundred!
of letters to democrats urging them to get
talked In the state, the republican state
busy at the primaries. One who read a
copy of the letter said It had for Its object
the lining; up of the democrats out In the
state against Omaha so that the governor
would get the benefit of any prejudice that
may have been created against the b.'g ci'.y
during the state convention because Its
delegation opposed an endorsement of the
8-o'clook closing law.
According to this authority the letter sets
out that with the exception of some ninety
six votes In addition to the delegation from
Omaha the entire state convention voted for
the endorsement of the S-o'clook-closlng
taw. Therefore, as Oovernor Bhallenberger
stands on that law and the fact that he
signed It, democrats should vote for him In
the primary as against Mayor Dahlman.
It Is said to be the Intention of the demo
crats to publish In every foreign language
platform relating to county option and send
It cut with the demooratto plank on the
same subject. They will da this to show
that the democrats are opposed to county
option even though the governor has
pledged himself to sign a bill If passed by
the legislature and he Is re-elected.
Ia the meantime several parties have di
rected queries to the governor's office ask
ing what he really got out of the Hitchcock
crowd at Grand Island in return for the
things he did for Hltohcook and the assist
ance his friends gave the suppression of
Illohard L. Metcalfe's liquor plank.
V Question sua to Blow. v
A difference of opinion exists aa to
whether John M. Levin really slapped W.
It. Patrick at Orand Island or whether he
simply "laid his fist against his jaw," aa
on eye witness describee the affair. John
O. alaher, who witnessed the fracas,
brought back this story:
"Heated at a table in the restaurant were
Patrick, Judge I. L. Alberts and Elmer
Thomas. Blake, Maher and I were at the
counter when John Devlne oame tn and
took a seat with us. Patrick look up and
said: 'Did you earn your money, DevlneT
"Devlne promptly got up and walked
round to Patrick and. laid his fist against
his Jaw and said:,
" 'What do you mean 7 -
"Patrick hesitated and Devlne oontonued,
'I'll teach you to be a gentleman. If ever
you use my name In a deragatory way I
will slap your faoa and tend to you to the
best of my ability.' " '
"Patrick at the time had a piece of water
melon and a fork In his hands and when
Devlne made his play he dropped both of
theee and bristled up. But Devlne stepped
baok and those at the table Interfered and
pruvented any further mlxup. I saw the
affair and I am 'certain that Devlne's fist
did touch Patrick's jaw," w -!'
After the story of the affair had been
published here, Devlne said:
"I did not really slap Patrick. I simply
put my fist right under his noee and kept
It there during the talk."
Maher insists, however, that Devlne and
Patrtok ware both too excited to know what
they did, and he la sure his story will be
corroborated by those who witnessed the
affair. When Patrick made his statement
Devlne supposed that ho referred to an
article Devlne wrote in opposition to county

Two Hundred Fourteen Members of
Tribe Given Authority to Lease
Their Own Landi.
WINNEBAGO, Neb., July ll.-(Bpec!al.
During a part of last year and the early
months of 1910 a competency commission
was at work at the agency of the Omaha
tribe of Indians In Thurston county. They
were classifying the Indians with reference
to their advancement In civilisation and
their consequently ability to conduct their
own affairs Independent of departmental
Some were given full and free possession
of their land and property, others were
given the right to lease their lands and
collect the rentals outside the office, sub
ject only to the approval of the local su
perintendent, a third class still have their
land and moneys held In trust for them.
These Indiana have met the demands of
citizenship tn such a way that the plan has
been extended by the Indian office to In
clude a class of Wlnnebagos.
Authority has Just been received granting
to 214 member of this tribe the right to
lease their own lands. It fs hoped that the
added responsibility thus thrown upon the
Indian, and his consequent effort to meet
It, will ga far toward fitting him for his
place In civilization. It Is expected that
many more will in the very near future
take possession of their allotments and
farm them successfully, and every effort
possible Is being put forth by' those In
charge to Ihduce them to do so. Hundreds
of them are farming already and several
thousand acres of nice corn have been
cared for this present year by Winnebago
A new system of Instruction In farming
and general business management haa been
recently Inauguiated by F. H. Abbott, as
sistant commissioner of Indian affairs. It
Is now In operation on both the Omaha and
Winnebago reservations. Skilled farmers
are employed whose duties are to work out
on the farms with the Indians, to advise
and assist them In the purchase, use and
care of machinery, to exercise a general
supervision over their work and business
operations and by taking a personal, di
rective Interest In them, seek to prepare
them for the duties and responsibilities of
The Indications now are that when the
trust period . expires, 'as It soon will for
this tribe, and these Indians take their
place among the citizens of Nebraska, they
will do so not as a class of idlers, but
aa a class of respectable, self-supporting
farmers, each owning, caring for and tak
ing pride in his own home.
Much credit is due Mr. Abbott as well aa
Superintendent A. II. Kneale and others
In charge of this work for the steps which
go far toward bringing about this result.

Show Signs of Considerable .
NEW TORK, July Jl.-Speclal Telegram.)
Dispatches received here from Washing
ton state that special agents of the United
States are now In Haytl Investigating con
ditions In the black republic, particularly
stories to the effect that cannibalism Is
rife on th Island and that the rapid growth
of voodoolsm threatens the existence of the
whites. It has been alleged that conditions
are such In Haytl that the residents de
mand Intervention by the United States
and it Is the purpose of the government to
learn definitely just what truth there Is in
the stories.
Hugh Gordon Miller, a New York lawyer
and special assistant to the United States
general attorney, came to the defense of
the people of Haytl today. Mr. Miller re
cently visited the republic. He said:
"Haytl's Inhabitants are neither barbar
ous nor semi-barbarous," aa I learned on
my visit.
No Woman Cnnnlbal There.
"This tfllk about a woman oanntbal will
undoubtedly be found to be gross exaggera
tion. I had never been on the Island be
fore and although aomewhat better In
formed as to the conditions than the stay-at-home
American, I had some misgivings
about what I should find. My surprise at
what I actually encountered was therefore
as great as it was agreeable.
'While the cities present some quaint
characteristics, evidences of present day
civilisation are by no means rare. The re
sources of the rich Interior have scarcely
been touched. N
"As for the people generally, they have
the characteristics of their race. They are
good natured, patient and Industrious when
they receive kindly treatment. As laborers
they are thoroughly reliable under the di
rection of the white men who regard them
as human beings and not as mere automa
tons. Religiously, they are tolerant.
"Reports that . have been printed from
tlm to time In the United States of th
survival of the African voodoo rites were
pronounced by all with whom I talked on
the subject, gross exaggerations, or down
right falsehoods. Bishop Collins declared
that he had Investigated some of the stories
and had found no evldonce of their truth.
He believes that they are the conooctlons
of Imaginative correspondents who stopped
off for a day or two at one or other of
the coast cities.
Ignorance Not Prenvlent.
"Ignorance Is not so prevalent In Haytl
as Americans have been led to suppose.
Both the government officers and the
clergy are doing excellent educational
"Training in the mechanical arts Is In de
mand and will naturally Increase more and
more as the country is developed. Consider
able skill already haa been attained In th
construction of buildings as is evidenced by
the new cathedral in Port A in Prlnc and
by the religious and public ealtices else
where. I
"Sine It haa become an independent
state. Haytl undoubtedly has been retarded
industrially, like other countries by too
much politios. The recent troubles on this
Island, however, is largely due to meddle
some activity of Eupopean speculators, who
were anxious to secure concessions to be
used for their enrichment. These persons
have been and are still envious of th
United States.
"Leaders of th Haytians today believe
that the only salvation for the country is
to be found under the protection of the
Monroe doctrine. Thoy have acquired con
fidence In our unselfishness of purpose by
observation of our treatment of th nearby
island of Cuba."

PARIS, July St. (Special Telegram.)
Although young Kernilt Roosevelt, the big

Roosevelt, said he was hot lured Into

Mrs. W. K. Vanderbllt. Mr. Roosevelt met
Miss Rutherford for the first time when he

the young man has lost his heart com

from there he will go to England. By an
odd coincidence. Miss Rutherford went to
England several days ago. Miss Ruther
ford was In Paris when Kermlt arrived. He
visited a friend in Versailles, but hurried
to Paris this week and went to a hotel
nearer the Vanderbllt residence, where he
has been staying. At the Hotel de La

Mr. Roosevelt ostensibly came to Paris
to study the French language, a language
In which Miss Rutherford is quite profi

couple evinced In each other during the
visit of Colonel Roosevelt and fumily at
the American embassy her is hot yet for

close friends ' of Ambassador Bacon and
spend much time at the embassy.' Miss
Rutherford Is U years of age. She made
her first appearance In society here as a
bridesmaid at the wedding of her cousin,
