By the Associated Press.
Omaha, Nov. 28—Receivers Clark,
Mink, Anderson, Doane and Condert of
the Union Pacific this morning peti
tioned the United States district court
for an order fixing their salaries at
11500 each per month. The petitioners
acknowledge that the remunera
tion asked, amounting to $90,000
a year, is $40,000 in excess
of the salaries formerly paid
the officers whose positions are now
filled by the receivers, but allege that
the enormity oi the interests involved
warrants the increase. They also re
serve the right to petition for increased
salaries should the situation warrant.

Iha Entire Union Pac.lie System to Be
Naw York, Nov. 28.—At yesterday's
meeting of the Union Pacific railway
reorganization committee, it was settled
that the reorganization must include
the whole Union Pacific system.
One of the snb-committee Baid
this morning: "I violate no
confidence by saying the full committee
has practically agreed tbat any plan
of reorganization to be successful
must comprise the entire Union
Pacific system. Thia will insure
the nearly unanimous support of
the foreign stockholding interest, for
there are large interests in Union
Pacific in London, Berlin, Amsterdam
and other European centers. All anx
iety upon this score may be set at reßt as
both the receivers audcommitteearesat
isfied that it would be the height of fully
to undo all tbe management hae done in
tbe past in the way of building up
traffic on the main line, derived from
the branches, although the latter on the
present basis are in some instances a
burden to the present company. Europe
will look anxiously ior some hint
of the proposed treatment of
branch line bonda it owna,
including Leavenworth and Topeka,
which are partly guaranteed by the
Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe;
the Union Pacific, Denver and
Oulf, which shows a small surplus
as a rule; tbe Oregon Short line; tbe
St. Joseph & Lincoln, and the Colorado,
which were behind regularly. The Ore
gon railway & Navigation company lease
will, however, be a puzzle."
Tho Illinois Central to Kaach Out to the
Fbekport, 111., Nov. 28 —A railroad
with a terminal at the gulf of Mexico,
another on Lake Michicaganand a third
at the Pacific ocean would,rnake a eys
tem more extensive than the woild has
yet seen. That may bs posasble come
time; in fact from, present in-j
dicatiena it is probable, and the
Illinois Central will be the com
pany to own such a line, according
to well-founded rumors in railroad
circles. It already has a line from Chi
cago to New Orleans and one from Chi
cago into lowa. Several yeare ago there
was begun from Sioux City the Pacific
short line, deetined to be the most direct
route to the Pacific. It was built ior a
distance of a few hundred miles
through Nebraska, when work
ceased in the sand regions because of
lack of funda. Since: then things have
not gone well, and it ia eaid the road can
now be bought for 15 cenCß on the dol
lar. By pushing weat the road could
reach the Pacific over a route 200 miles
shorter than any other. The difficulty
in the way ia the 200 mile
stretch of sand which would
yield no profits for years, perhaps
never. It is eaid the Central officials
have had the matter under considera
tion and think favorably of it; that, in
fact, tbe purchase would have been
made and the extension begun this
summer, had it not been for tbe dis
turbed condition of tbe mouey market.

HANK GOOD'S NERVE.
A CHOCTAW WHO GAVE HIS LIFE
WITHOUT A BIQN OF FEAR.
The Red Man's Desire For Whisky Caused
Dim to Commit a Double Murder— Con-
demned to Die, bnt Released on His Own
Recognisance, Which Waa Ball Enough.
Captain Frank Williams of the Texas
Rangers gives an excellent account of
the remarkable execution of Hank
Ocod, a thoroughbred Choctaw Indian,
whioh occurred in the Choctaw reser
"I never dreamed I was going toeee
one of the bravest acts I ever witnessed
in my life when I went to see Hank
Good shot," Captain Williams said.
"I was in the reservation when Hank
committed the murder for which he
gave up his life, and I had a great cu
riosity to see how he would act when
the time came for him to pay the pen
"The murder Hank committed oc
curred Feb. 9, 1898. Two whisky
peddlers, named Isaac Greenbaum and
Solomon Heppenstein, were the vic
tims. They had been in the habit of
stealing into the reservation about once
a month and selling whisky to the In
dians. On thiß particular night they
entered the territory with two small
casks of whisky. Hsnk saw them when
he came in. and he then and there de
termined to get his fill of fire water that
night or know the reason why. He
watched them nnd followed them to a
lonely place, where they secuied their
whisky, wrapped their blankets around
them and Went to sleep. When they
wero Blumbering soundly, he stole upon
them, and it could not have taken him
long to relieve them of their scalps.
Ho found the whisky, drank to his
heart 's content aud enjoyed the warmth
of the fire the peddlers had built.
Hank niado no attempt to escape or
conceal his crime, but remained there
and drank until he was stupid. About
10 o'clock the next morning as I was
passing along the road with a squad of
the White Horse we came upon the
horrible sight. Hank was lying Serosa
the dead bodies of his victims, and one
of the whisky casks wa clasped in his
arms. We tried to arouse him, but could
not and had to carry him to the head
quarters of the reservation. They
locked Hunk up, and it was three days
before ho was sober enough to be ar
raigned before the Indian judge and
"On the third day after the murder
Hank was brought up for trial. Hank
made no defense. He did not seem to
feel sorry, cither, for having commit
ted the crime. It was the first time
in his life that ho had had enough
whisky. The jury soon decided that
Hauk was guilty and should be shot.
It took into consideration the fact that
Hank was the most popular and best
looking young buck in the nation and
recommended him to the mercy of the
judge. The judge finally sentenced
him to be shot to death at noon, Sept.
25. Hank took au oath to appear at
that hour under a big oak tree and pay
the penalty. They then allowed him to
"Were they afraid he would never
"Not in the least. A full blooded
Choctaw was never known to break his
'' Well,'' Captain Williams continued,
"Hank did not leave tho nation, but
three days afterward he got married
and commenced to work as hard to get
land and horses a3 a man who expected
to live 50 years. In a few months he
was one of the most prosperous young
men in the tribe and lived apparently
"Tho months slowly passed, and as
the time drew near for Hank to be shot
the Indians commenced to get excited.
They wore nil I n.vioua to see how ho
would act. Hank never referred to tho
matter and kept on working up to- the
day before the one which was to be his
last on earth.
"The fatal morning at last arrived.
It was a holiday on the reservation,
and long before noon all tbe members
of the nation were in the vicinity of
the big oak tree, dressed in all tho fin
ery they could command. Hank was
on the scene early, arrayed in his best,
and an hour before bis execution he
danced with all the squaws. He never
glanced at tho pine coffin on which he
was to kneel and bo killed.
"Exactly at noon lie left his family,
and with head erect and a smile upon
his face he walked to the coffin and
knelt upon the lid. The sheriff had
not yet arrived, but Hank was there
and waiting. The sheriff finally came,
and walking over to Hank he started
to bind a white cloth around Hank's
eyes. Hank tore it off and motioned
the Sheriff back. You should have
seen the Indians look at him. Every
one admired his nerve.
"The sheriff stepped back several
feet, drew his revolver and took delib
erate aim. Hauk smiled and glanced
down the glistening barrel without
moving a muscle. In another second
the sheriff fired, and a ball crashed into
Hank's brain, directly between the
eyes. Ho quivered a second and fell
over dead into the coffin."
"What became of Hank's wife?"
"Oh, she married a good looking
young buck the next day."—Pittsburg

Rrmarkable Story From India About
Catchlns v Toatul Thiol.
The narrator of the following story
some years ago had charge of a postal
division on the western coast, parts of
Whioh had seldom been visited by a
European officer. The people were for
the most part simple country folk ami
vory superstitious. One morning the
narrator received information that a
considerable snfn of money, forming part
)f the contents of the mail from a bead
to a suboffice, had been stolen on the
road. The whole affair was wrapped in
The only clew the police had been able
to obtain was that one runner, whom wo
shall call Rama, had since the theft paid
off certain debts in the village which had
long pressed upon him, but there were
no other suspicious circumstances, and
the man had 10 years' good service. As
a last resource it was determined to re
sort to trial by ordeal and for this pur
pose an aged Brahman, who was sup
posed to possess occult powers and to be
in daily communion with the gods, was
consulted and readily undertook to dis
cover tho thief. All the runners—agood-
ly array of sturdy Mahratta peasants—
were summoned to the office, and uuder
the guidance of a cheyla, or disciple, of
the old Brahman we all proceeded to n
small deserted temple of Mahadeo, situ
ated at some distance from the village.
It was a desolate spot and boro an evil
reputation. The temple, owing to some
act of desecration in the past, had been
abandoned aud was almost buried
among weeds and tangled brushwood.
The hour selected was about 0 p. m.,
and the long twilight shadows gavo the
place a weird, uncanny look. The old
Brahman was awaiting us. and as wo ap
proached appeared to be busy mutter
ing incantations. The runners all seemed
to be more or less tinder tho spell of the
hour, but the look of real fright in
Rama's face was quite distinct. The
Brahman, having finished his incanta
tions, rose and addressing the men said]
"You are about to face tho gods. To
the innocent the trial will be nothing,
but to the guilty much. In tho temple
a magic wand has been placed on the
altar. Each of yon must go in by turns,
take up the wand aud turn round three
times, repeating tho name of Mahadeo.
The wand will stick to tho hand of the
guilty one." By this time it was nearly
dark. I glanced in through the door of
the temple. A solitary oil buttee threw
a fitful light on tho altar, on which an
ordinary bamboo stick about two feet
long reposed among grains of uncooked
rice and nut limes, the wholo sprinkled
with red powder.
A curtain was drawn across the door,
and the men entered one at a time. As
each one appeared the Brahman seized
his hands and raised them to his fore
head, aud then allowed them to pass ou
and join his fellows. Comiug te Rama,
he went through the same pantomime,
but instead of allowing him to pass on
bade him stand aside. When the last
man had gone through the ordeal the
Brahman turned to llama and said qui
"Tell tho sahib bow you stole the
"To my utter amazement," continues
the 'writer, "Rama fell on his knees,
confessed that he was the thief, and of
fered to show where he had hidden the
balance of the money. Ho had succeed
ed in opening tho mail bag without
seriously disturbing tho seals. Tho post
master had not really examined them
and so their having been manipulated
had escaped notice. Needless to say,
the Brahman was rewarded nnd poor
Rama was sent to repent at leisure in
the district jail."
Now the natural question is: "How
was it done?" Very simply. Tho tem
ple, the km<t}7 glen, tho uncanny hour,
the incantations, all were merely acces
sories to appeal to the superstitions of
the ignorant peasants. The "magic
wand" was thickly smeared with strong
ly scented sandalwood oil. Rama's
guilty conscience prevented him front
touhcing it, as bo firmly believed the
wand would stick to his hands, and his
of course was the only hand that did
not smell of oil. —Tunes of India.

SOCIETY WOMEN BURGLARS.
A Woman and Her Daughter, Both of l"t
--eellent Repute, Arretted For Stealing.
In an Adrian justice court sat two
well dressed ladies. Both were comely
and apparently refined. The air and
dress of the women indicated that they
belonged to the upper walks of life and
were people of quality. The elder of the
two, still below the middle age, sat erect
\ud wore an air of defiance. The other,
*, young lady of real beauty and tastily
attired, was bowed with an air of sor
Jf,o one unacquainted with the circura
srances would have suspected for a mo
ment that these ladies wero a pair of
burglars whose Work rivals that of nor.ie
of the best men of the profession. ' :t
such was tho case. They were mothe: i 1
daughter—Mrs. Alice Church, a Willi W
of excellent repute, residing in Teouhi
seh, a village of 2,000, 10 miles from;
Adrian, and Mies Bessie Church. They
were under arrest charged with break
ing into the residence of Editor S. C.
Stacy of the Tecumseh Herald during
tho absence of the family and taking
therefrom a feather bed, bedclothing,
a big job lot of ladies' underwear, sever
al pairs of shoes, a quantity of groceries,
Entrance was effected in the night.
Saturday morning the man about the
premises noticed that a window had been
forced, and investigating be found that
the house had been ransacked and the
front door key taken. Officers wero no
tified, nnd as the absence of tho key do
noted an intended return of the burglars
two men were stationed in the house
that night. Near 11 o'clock the key soft
ly turned ln the lock, and the forms of
two persons, apparently men, as they
wore men's clothing, appeared. There
was a sudden rush, a clasping of the in
truders in strong arms and a terrific
squabble, embellished with femalo
screams. Astonishment caused one of
the officers to lot one of the burglars slip,
and she fled. The other fought like a
tigress and laid about right and left with
what proved to be an insect powder
spray loaded with cayenne j>epper. One
of her captors, Aimer Wilson, "got it in
the eye," but held his girl, and the pris
oner was secured. Then she confessed
her identity and "gave away" her daugh
ter Bessie as tho other burglar. Bessie
was followed to her homo and arrested.
"What do yon plead?" asked the court
as bo took off his glasses after receiving
the Information. "Wo waive examina
tion, sir." wan the firm, clear and busi
nesslike response of the elder prisoner.
"I will make your bonds $500 each," re
joined the court. "Your honor, that is
too high; it is excessive," again spoke the
elder lady. "1 must make it $500," said
the court. "Very well, sir, but it is too
high; 1 cannot get it; we must go to
jail." The prisoners then signified to tho
officer that tin y were ready, and tho rn"
