IVashixgtox, Aug. 1. The report pro
rrnted in the Senate yesterday by Mr.
Frye from the select committee oil Pacific
railroads recommending the passage of tha
Outhivaite Union Pacific Railroad Fund
ingTbill withontaniendnientis signed by all
tbe members. It deals only with the Union
Pacific railway and the Central Branch of
the Union Pacific. After detailing tha
provisions of the Outhwaito biP and ex
pressing the opinion that it fully protects
.hfi interests of the United States, it con
tinued as follows: "If this settlement is
adopted the following advantages are se
cured: First, all controversies between
the United States and the compan
ies euch as have occurred under exist
ing laws are terminated; second,
sJl questions as to the invest
ment of the sinking fund are ended as tha
United State, at once receives this largo
Him on account of the subsidy debt and is
relieved from all trust obligations to tha
company; third, the United States will
receive before the debt matures in addi
tion to the sinking fund which at the valu
ation of November 1, ltsx", was ?7,?33,0S3
sot less than 2,Oi7,fiGO, making a total
payment of principal before maturity of
$J0r381,.V51, and will also receive interest
oa tbe entire debt every six months', tha
total payment of interest during the samo
period amounting to 12.2r,0,7G7; fourth,
tSe United States will receive a very large
tnvount of additional security, which in
jures the ultimate payment of the whole
debt." In conclusion tbe committee says:
"Believing, therefore, that the bill secures
into payment of the debts due from the
companies to which it relates and that it
makes all the provision possible for the
punishment of those who are charged with
having illegally enriched themselves at
tbe expense of thoe companies, they rec
ommend its adoption by the Senate."

CONGRESS WAKING UP.
The Slaughter In the Neutral Strip Arousg
Conjjress to a National Disgrace.
TTashixgtox, July 31. The recent
troubles in Stevens County, Kan., ending
in murder in No-Man's-Land, have aroused
some more of the apathetic Congressmen
to the fact that et least one section of the
country is devoid of law. Many of the
opponents of the proposed legislation con
cerning No-Man's-Land now concede that
Congress ought to do something to place
that territory under the jurisdiction of
courts at law. Representative Peters, of
Kansas, whose district includes Stevens
County and borders on No-Man's-Land,
has received from Governor Martin an offi
cial statement as to the resent outrages
upon law and order and an appeal for
Congressional action. It is probable that
the other members of the Kansas delega
tion will receive similar communications.
Many of Congressman Peters' constituents
along the Indian Territory border ar also
appealing for legislation which will place
No-Man's-Land under authority of law.
Two bills, either of which would effect
the necessary relief, are now before Con
gress. One is the Springer bill, creating
tho Territory of Oklahoma. It includes
Oklahoma, the Cheyenne and Arapahoe
Reservation, the Cherokee Strip, No-Man's
Land and portions of several small reser
rations. Under the provisions of the bill
a commission is authorized to settle with
the Indians and finally adjust all treaties
relating to the lands involved. A terri
torial form of government would then be
extended over the country, and the laws of
the United States could then be enforced
by the courts.
The other bill is the No-Man's-Land bill
introduced in the Senate by Mr. Voorhees.
It passed the Senate some time ago, and is
now before the House, reported favorably
from Mr, Holman's Committee on Public
Lands. It attaches No-Man's-Land to the
State for judicial purposes, and throws the
lands open to settlers under the Home
stead law. No Man's-Land and the three
adjoining counties of Seward, Stevens nnd
Morton, in Kansas, it is provided shall
constitute a new land district. Mr.
Springer's bill lias been before the House
upon two occasions recently and five sec
tions of the measure have been adopted.
It is now on the calendar as unfinished
business before the Committee of tho
Whole House and is likely to come up
again in a few days. The advocates of
each measure have renewed their solicita
tions to the members of the House to pass
it as early as possible.
The two measures are somewhat antag
onistic, however, inasmuch that the pas
sage of one means the uselessness and
Consequent defeat of the other. No-Man's-
Land now seems to be the principal argu
ment in favor of Mich measure, and tho
recent trouble in that section of the Terri
tory only adds to its force. Unless the
friends of the respective measures become
involved in a bitter fight for the suprem
acy, it now seems probable that Congress
will give No-Man's-Land the legislation it
requires in the form of one of the two
ORDERED TO STEVENS COUNTY
MORE OF THAT KILLING.

Liberal, Kan.. Aug. 1. Attorney-Genera!
Bradford, Brigadier-General Meyers
ind his staff officer, Captain John A. 'Wal
lace, who went to Stevens County last
Sunday to investigate the killing of SberitE
Cross nnd his three deputies, returned to
Lileral this morning at two o'clock and
will leave for homo this afternoon. The
Iarry visited Ilugoton, Woodsdale and
Voorhees in Steven.? County and also went
to the Neutral Strip, where they found tho
Mood-bespattered place where the five
men had been shot down.
General Bradford examined a large
numlier of people in the different towns
and all the witnesses to the shooting af
fair. Herbert Toncy was examined by
him and his testimony is in every essen
tial the same as his statement at Woods
dale and his post-mortem statement at
Voorhees, which was given to the press
last week. His statement is corrolorated
ly the two haymakers-, Scott and House,
who were encamped near the spot where
the tragedy was enacted.
Toney and Houm say that Cro.s and his
men had fastened their rifles to the saddles
of their hors:es liefore they lay down, but
Scott is not quite certain whether they did
this or not. This is the only point in which
Their testimony is to the faet that Sheriit
Cross and his pnrty arrived at the camp
tired and worn out, that they asked per
mission of the haymakers to lie down and
rest, that they were lying down appre
hending no danger when they weie sud
denly surrounded by liohimou and his
men and shot down without ha ;ng ar.y

Topeka, Kan. Aug. 3. Attorney-General
Bradford and General Meyers returned
yesterday from Stevens County. They re
port that there are at least oOO men under
arms at Hugoton'and Woodsdale ready to
begin active hostilities at the drop of a hat.
Mr. Bradford demanded the dismissal of
Short, marshal of Woodsdale, and Robin
son, who holds a like position at Hugoton.
As a result of the report of Attorney
General Bradford and General Murray
Meyers, Governor Martin ordered the Sec
ond regiment, under command of Colonel
L. N. Woodcock, to proceed at once to
Stevens County and quell the disturbances
there. The regiment is about 600 strong
and consists of the following companies:
A, Winchester, W. A. Riggs, captain; B,
Wellington, J. F. Hibbard, captain;
C, Winfield, Ben S. Henderson,
captain ; D, Newton, Harry C.
Smith, Captain; E. Eldorado, James R.
Walker, Captain; F, Larned, David A.
Kfng, Captain; G, Marion, Ferd Lewis,
Captain; H, Sterling, Jacob S. Kline, Cap
tain. Batterv B, of Topeka, with a gat-
ling gun, is also ordered to accompany the
regiment. Tho troops will be mobilized
at Hutchinson and proceed by special
train on the Rock Island to Lib
eral, whence they will have to march a
distance of forty miles. General Murray
Meyers will command the troops. The or
ders are to defend the lives and persons of
the inhabitants and see that civil officers
of State, county, towns and townships are
not molested or intimidated while serving
the processes of the civil courts.
Complniuts have been filed with United
States Commissioner Wilson, which
charges Robinson and his party with the
murder of Cross and his posse. United
States Marshal Jones and a sufficient
number of deputies to make the ar
rests and bring the men safely to this
city will serve the warrants. The com
plaints were filed at the instance of
United States Attorney Perry, who pro
poses to see if he can not chalk out some
line of policy in their prosecution which
will insure them the deserts they so well
merit and place them bej'ond the possibil
ity of their repeating their crime.
Hermann Conn, of Voorhees, has been
appointed sheriff of Stevens County to
succeed Cross on the recommendation of
Attorney-General Bradford and General
Meyers, who after familiarizing themselves
thoroughly with the real situation con
cluded that Conn was a proper person to
hold office and discharge the duties, as he
is an ally of neither of the contending

Toi'EKA. Kan., Aug. "2. T. J. Goodn,
who has tilled theotfice of county trenu: it
of Rawlins County for two teim. im dis
appeared. His accounts with the county
Jte short about 10,(XW, which he is
supposed to have taken with him.
There has been trouble before with
his account, and consequently three
different bonds have been executed at
the request of the county commissioners,
and about twenty names are attached, but
because of some irregularities in the form
and manner of accepting the Ixiud, it is i e
ported that the county will lose the entire
amount of the shortage. Goodin has been
considered one of the first men of Raw
lins County for honor and responsibility.
He had, however, a weakness for sjwcula
ticm, which, it is thought, is the reason for
his disappearance, as he has been known
to lose quiti heavily lately.
Norfolk, Va., Aug. 2. Yesterday morn

The Tea Trade.
Chicago, Aug. 1. The Northern Pacific
is making an effort to secure a share of the
tea traffic from the Pacific to the Atlantic
coast, which of late has been monoolized
to a great extent by the Canadian Pacific
Yesterday the first shipment of six
teen car loads arrived at Chicago on
its way to New York. The tea was
received at Portland, Ore., In- he
Northern P-cific, transferred to the Dar
lington & Northern at St. Paul and on irs
arrival here was taken eastward over the
Chicago & Alton, which connects with the
Erie for New York. The object is to over

I'rcmnnt Kminon Lynched for the 3Iurder
of Bertha Schultx His Last Words a
Pawxee City, Neb., Aug. 1. Fremont
Emmons, the murderer of Bertha Schultz,
was brought here from Beatrice Monday
for preliminary examination and bound
over to the district court. His presence
caused great excitement and about mid
night a crowd began to gather, determined
to IjTich him. He was concealed in tho
third story of the court house, but the
crowd soon discovered his hiding place
and took him away from the officials by
force. A rope was placed around his neck
and he was led through the public streets
to the high Chicago, Kansas & Nebraska
trestle over the Burlington & Missouri
track. Arriving there the citizens asked
that Emmons should be identified as tho
party wanted. The identification wascom
plete and he was given an opportunity to
make a statement. He gave the history of
kis life for the past two years, in which ho
claimed to have been a Christian, but had
lately fallen from grace. Ho admonished
the young men to reform from the habit of
using strong drink. He also stated that
he had been disappointed in love and that
Miss Schultz had circulated false reports
in regard to him. He maintained that he
knew nothing about committing the mur
der nnd asked if a minister was present
and that if he would pray for him, after
winch no asked to pray for himself. In
his prayer he asked God to forgive him for
committing the murder and that God would
forgive nil those who were implicated in
punishing him if they were guilty of any
The doomed man then took several steps
further out on the trestle and his arms be
ing tied behind him and his legs free ho
was told to jump. The rope was fastened
to a cross tio on the wagon roadway and
Emmons jumped about thirteen feet and
died without n struggle.
About seven o'clock last Thursday even
ing Emmons who was second cook at tho
Exchange Hotel deliberately went into the
back yard where Bertha Schultz, a cham
bermaid, was hanging out clothes, grasped
her by the right arm, pulled her half
around and thrust a knifo into her left
breast, with such force that the Wow was
heard by passers by quite a distance away.
When he withdrew tho knife, the girl
screamed, took a few steps and fell dead.
The murderer was arrested and later taken
to Beatrice to prevent the enraged citizens
lynching him. The weapon used was a
shoe knife, which he had sharpened for the
purpose. He had asked the girl to marry
him, but she had refused. Emmons was a
;ood looking, intelligent man, aged about
twentj'-flve years. He was at one time a

Tuberculosis is an incurable disease and
tho cow having it is not fit to breed from
and her milk is not fit to use. We see it
stated that the Nebraska authorities affirm
that the disease is contagious, and that
possibly all the cows in the herd in which
a case is found, will have to be killed,
which is all nonsense. If an animal should
eat the products of a tuberculous animal,
it might become tuberculous. But the idea
of the disease being contagious in the or
dinary acceptanceof the term is ridiculous.
If there are any offspring of those diseased
cows in the herd they had better be got rid
A careless or slow milker should never
be tolerated on the dairy farm. While the
cow relaxes the muscles of her udder ''to
give down" the milk, the bag should be
as possible. If the
milking is prolonged the cow will hold up
her milk, simply because she is tired of the
other position. Some of the milk will not
then be secured, and, remaining in the
udder, will have its well understood effect
of making the cow go dry. A cow always
milked rapidly will give more and main

mentary, and the court is generally
ready to defend its officers, the attor

each other. It is rare, however, that
interferes to protect the
parties to a suit from the malignant
tongue of a paid attorney who appears
A citizen of Maryland who had been
abused like a pickpocket by the attor
ney for the other side in a case in
which he was a party, took the novel
course of suing the abusive lawyer
for slander. Slandered he undoubt
edly had been, but he has found
that it is the privilege of lawyers to
slander and libel too, and the court
will protect them in iL So long as the
defamation was uttered in his charac
ter of counsel, says the Maryland
Court of Appeal, or is relevant to the
issue, an action of slander against the
lawyer who uttered it will not lie. The
court adds, however, that such an ac
tion may be maintained against a coun
sel who in the discharge of his duties
"assails wantonly a person's character
and utters maliciously what he knows
to be false and in regard to a matter
that has no relation to the subject mat
ter of the inquiry."1
The difficulty of proving the irrele
vancy of the slander and the malice of
the slanderer will not encourage suits
of this character against lawyers who
abuse tho parties in a suit to which
they are opposed merely as a trick of
their trade. The perfunctory charac
ter of this abuse is, to a large extent,
its own corrective. Xo one attaches
any particular value to the sispersions
and insinuations of a lawyer made
solely with the view of winning the
case at issue. It may chagrin and
anger the person abused at the time,
and even prejudice his case with the
jury, but unless it is founded on indis
putable facts it rarely hurts outside of
the place in which it is uttered. Pril

passing attracted his attention" by saying
there was something the matter with the
harness, and while Mr. Dederick-'s head
was turned a confederate dashed in and
grabbed the bonds and made his escape, J

Tucson, Ariz., Aug. 2. About sundown
last night a band of ambushed Indians
fired into the tent of the soldiers and the
store at the subagency between Fort
Thomas and San Carlos. About twenty
shots were fired. The porter and soldiers
arrived at Fort Thomas about 2:30 this
morning and gave the alarm, and troops

morning and will endeavor to communi

Tho arm3' worm has made its appear

playing sad havoc with the meadows, etc.
Farmers are turning in their hogs to eat
the worms, hoping in that way to keep
them in check.
Ornamental plant may be so arranged
as to spell words or represent forms, such

ors may be arranged to correspond. In
this manner a very pretty effect may bo
given a flower garden.
It has been demonstrated that while the
pinching back of the shoots of melons will
induce the vines to throw out laterals, and
also produce a larger number of melons,
the process does not increase the size of
the fruit. This theory is in conllict with
that of a cekb.-ated Georgia melon grower.
A JJew York farmer cleans phosphate
barrels by building a lire of shavings or
dry straw in them until they are
charred all over inside; they are thus
"purified us by fire," and lit to store pota
toes in. Neglected beef barrels can bo
purified the same way; so can musty cider
barrels by taken out one head.
Tho forage of the farm fed upon the farm
to neat stock, and this stock consisting of
good dairy cows, proper precaution being
taken and arrangements made to make the
most dressing for the farm out of its liny
crop and then saving it after it is made, is
tho best disposal that can be made of the
fodder crop the farm produces.
Beets, parsni" and carrots are now well
advanced, but he require close attention
in order to kew. the rows clean. After
each rain the ground should be cultivated,
and if grass has taken hold between the
plants it will pay to use the hoe. By so
doing the roots will be larger, better in
quality, and a fair yield secured.
Do not hesitate to Paris green the potato
plants. Every beetle destroyed reduces the
number next year. The warof extermina
tion should not cease until the beetles are
extinct. One difficulty is that if only a
few beetles appear no thought is given the
small damage that may be done, but the
damage will be tenfold greater the follow
ing year, lhe aim snoum be to destroy
them, no matter how few the number.
A Story or Klizabeth Oakes Smith's Chllcl
liootl Life iu Maine.
Writing from Hollywood, N. C,
Elizabeth Oakes Smith tells an interesting-
story of her childhood's life in
Maine. One evening, when her father
was at sea and her mother was putting
the children to bed, six tall, blanketed
Indians stalked into the house. "They
gave mother to understand that they
wanted fire-waler," said the writer.
'To this she gave firm answer that
she had none but she would give
them something to eat, and brought
forward bread, meat, pie and cheese,
as are always on hand in a New En
gland pantry. A wildwood appetite
is not delicate in kind, and they soon
devoured every thing in the house,and
the chief stood and scrutinized the
brave, handsome face of my mother,
as if reading her character. She sat
in a high-backed rocking chair with
me in her lap, and my sister, two years
older, standing behind her, and the
young girl upon a stool at her feet.
Be it remembered that they were three
quarters of a mile from any other
dwelling, and the night was far spent.
At length the chief made her to un
derstand that they would give her a
dance, and at once the whole six be
gan going round the room, keeping
time to a low, measured chant which
the' hummed, broken by notes which
seemed a yell, at which each gave a
leap into the air. The leader held his
hand out to me, which 1 took with a
baby giggle, being a little less than a
year old. Swinging me upon his shoul
der, the dance went on with beat and
yells, I shouting and laughing at my
best.'' They went otf without doing
any mischief, but it was a fearful or
deal for the mother. Chicago Journal.
