The statement is frequently made that
the mar's civil list Is $5,000,000. The fact
Is that the emperors of Russia have no
civil list, as they draw at liberty on the
Imperial treasury, every rouble, which Is
supposed to be at the absolute disposal
of the sovereign, who Is the owner of
vsst estates and forests, with mines of
great value. A diplomatist, newly arrived
at St. Petersburg, asked a functionary of
the Russlon foreign office the amount of
the imperial civil list and received the
answer, "Quo voulci-vous avea une Llste
Civile? Tout apparlent au Tsar, et 11

The reign of terror in the Caucasus
reached its climax of dramatic horror last
Week. Hussedn Khanoff, a wealthy robber
ol Rllsaretpoi district, on being refused the
hand of Agafya. the daughter of a petty
official named Kaslmtreff, carried her off
Next day, after a fierce struggle, in
which several of the brigands were
wounded, the girl waa rescued. But Kasim

threats, determined to migrate from the
town. Hussein seised this as an oppor
tunity for revengek As Kaaimlmff, his

by his band of cut-throats and hurried off

escape which both refused. "Agafya," said
the bandit, "la reserved for a better fate."
The four victims were then roped to
gether and placed In a leaking boat, which
was towed Into the middle of a small lake.
As the boat settled down the wretched
family prayed and sang hymns, while the
brtfcands Jeered .and threw stones on therm.
For an hour they clung to the boat, but as
each sank the burden upon the survivors
became greater, and finally all disappeared.
Three days later Agafya, rescued in a
pitiable condition by soldiers, told a very
pathetlo story which was related above.
Strange Storr of a. Child. ,

family in Krasnobrod. A few months
ago the mother paid a visit to the district
Tahrmarka. There near the church door
she gave alms to a blind girl saying, "Pray
for my child, my dead, whom I loot two
years, ago. She Is certainly dead." The
blind girl had scarcely heard the lady's
voice before she recognised, and sprung
to her feet saying, "Mamma, I am your
child, Marie." She had been stolen by beg

encamped at Fort Rlluy spent an unusually
chilly night, none of the Nebraska men
suffered the least discomfort, being well
provided for emergencies.
An almost impenetrable fog over the
camp this morning compelled company

Just before midday mess.
Adjutant General Hargan arrived from
Lincoln this afternoon and In less than
an hour afterward the' men were mutered
for their half pay due them for service
during the maneuvers. The other half will
be paid them by the state after they re

expressed themselves as wll pleased with
the work of the newly organised company
of engineers from Omaha and on account
of their interest In engineering lines have
promised to send a company of regulars to
the Ak-Sar-Ben festivities this fall.
The general maneuvering of the Nebras
ka men has received high commendation
from all army officers stationed here and
none but words of praise has been heard
for the conduct of the men and officers of
both regiments. The camp has been re
ferred to as one of the most orderly ever

tect Former President's Eeputation.
DEFENSE EECEIVES SETBACK
Judge Braga-emerer Refuses Defend
ants Bill of Particulars or Change
of Venue Reuther Tells of
CHICAGO, Aug. 27.-7Attomeys for three
former high officials of the Illinois Central
railroad. Frank B. IHarrlman, formerly
general manager; John M. Taylor, store
keeper, and Charles L. Ewtng, superin
tendent of the lmes north of the Ohio river,
received a setback on the first day of their
criminal trial today when Judge Brugge
meyer refused the defendants a bill of par
ticulars or a change of venue. The men
are charged with participating in frauds
by which the railroad company Is alleged
to have been mulcted out of more than
11,000,000 through inflated car repair bills.
Despite objections by attorneys ' for the
defense, names of Ira G. Rawn, former
president of the Monon route, who met
death recently by a bullet wound; J. E.
Buker, and William Renshaw, former
superintendents of machinery of the Illi
nois Central, were brought Into the case
In the testimony of Teoppile Reuther, form
erly general manager of the Osterman Car
company, now employed as a locomotive
engineer for the Illinois Central road. His
testimony was placed on the record, but
Judge Bruggemeyer asserted it might be
stricken out later If attorneys for the
prosecution failed to prove It material.
Reuther testified as to the organisation
of the Osterman company, a concern , to
which Illinois Central cars were sent for
repairs. He declared he had been ousted
from his position as general manager and
director, that John M. Taylor, one of the
defendenta, might he made director. He
declared the company waa organised In
1908 to make grain doors, that It later made
cement blocks, snd subsequently entered
the business of repairing cars for the Illi

terested In the company?" asked Attorney
Walter L. Fisher, who Is aiding Assistant
State's Attorney Bornes. , .
"Yes, he became a stockholder," an
swered Mr. Reuther.
Tells of "I4asr Mener."
Counsel for the defense here sought to
prevent further examination of the wit
nesses, asserting that the Osterman com
pany was riot on trial. "What, do you
expect to prove of tills witness?" was
asked of Mr. Fisher.
"I mean to show," he answered, "that
material was sent the Osterman company
by Taylor, which was not paid for and that
fraudulent bills subsequently were ren
dered, that the Illinois Central company
Reuther then narrated a conversation hs
declared Osterman had held with him. In
which the car company head told of pre
senting Taylor with a block of 2.000 shares
In the company, adding that he would pre
sent a similar block to irt CI. Rawn, at
that time vice president of the road, Frank
B. Harrlman, J. F. Buker, assistant su
perintendent of machinery, and to William
Renshaw, superintendent of machinery of
the Illinois Central.
Reuther was permitted to continue his
narrative and said:
"One day I waa walking through tbe
yards with Oalerniaa when we came upon
a huge pile of lumber. He pointed to It
" 'How much do you think that pile of
lumber is worth, Reuther?'
"I told him I did not know, and asked
him where he expected to get the money
to pay for it."
Defease Makes Objection.
"He replied that the lumber was worth
at least $15,000, and said he would get the
money to pay for It, while later we came
upon many tiers of brass Journals and other
brass car parts. He sald: 'There is somt
"I said he had better look out for that
easy money business, or that he would get
into trouble. Osterman replied:
" 'Oh, Taylor will take care of that.' "
Prior to Reuther's testimony, E. C. Cow-
gill, chief clerk, to the president of the
railroad, was called by the prosecution
and testified as to the ordinary procedure
In connection with the payment of vouchers.
"first the department heads must ap
prove the voucher," he said, "then It passes
through the hands of other officials of
the company and finally Is sent to the
auditor of disbursements for payment."

WASHINGTON, D. C. Aug. 27.-Esti-matlng
the cost of the experiment at about
$100,000, the War department officials have
declined requests to order a bombardment
of the skies by all Its guns on Puget
Sound, and t the mouth of the Columbia
river in an effort to bring on rain In the
burning forest district of the northwest In
addition to the objection of cost, the army
officials regarded the proposal as certain
to prove futile. The Navy department. In
which a similar request was made, ex
pressed Its willingness to co-operate with
the army with six or ten guns, the only
ones at Its disposal.
The experiment would have been one of
the most ppectacular ever attempted In
the United Stales. Around Pugt Sound, at
Forts Worden. Casey and Flagler, the
army has forty twelve-Inch mortars, six
twelve-Inch rifles, eighteen ten-inch guns,
and twenty six-Inch guns, besides a large
number of guns of smaller caliber. At the
mouth of the Columbia in Forts Columbia
and Stevens are eight twelve-Inch mortars,
eight ten-inch guns, three eight-Inch guns,
and eleven six-Inch, in addition to the
To fire these once simultaneously, loaded
properly for the purpose In mind would
have cost the government. It was estimated
at tho War department, 110,000. Admitting
the possibility of effectiveness. It was con
sidered that probably ten rounds would
have been required. This would have run
the cost up to a figure that the officials
did not feel Justified In Incurring without
specific authorization from high authority,
particularly In view of the amount al
ready spent In putting thirty-two com
panies of troops Into the forest to fight the
Not Equipped with Time Fuses.
Besides the element of cost, it waa atated
at the War department that the army was
not equipped with projectiles with time
fuses for the guns Just enumerated, and
hence the only atmospheric disturbance
created would be by the formation of gases
from the ground at the time of the dis
charge of the guns, and y itie firing of
the projectile through the air. The dis
turbance caused by the flight of the pro
jectiles, It was said, would be comparatively
negligible for the purposes of creating a
violent confusion among the air currents.
To fire the biggest guns In the coast
artillery costs about 'M each, It has been
estimated. To fire the twelve-Inch mortars,
costs about )00, or 70 each.
