KILLED BY THE CUCKOOS,
Hip llmtn lallt to Pass the ,rknnis
.Nnrtliiieslrrii lllll titer the I'rrs
Ident's Vi to.
Washington, Star h 3 (Ppeclat ) The
effort vi as made this afternoon to secure
the p.issjge 01 er Ihe president's, veto of
the hill to grant a right of way through
the Indian country lo the Arkansas nnd
Northwestern road, which It Is proposed
to run from Southwest Sllssourl northwest
lo Knnstis, In the ilclnlly of CofTeyvllte.
The plan agreed upon was lo have this
failed up nrst, ns It had been Introduced
li) Sir, l)enhiore, of Arkansas, and It
was thought best to hao the first effort
In the lino of upsetting n veto eotne from
that side, nnd should that succeed then It
would be followed Immediately b) tho ef
fort to pass the Oklahoma Central bill,
nlo over the veto.
Tho contest over the Arkansas it North
western went along tery smoothly and the
roll call showed IM In favor of the bill
11I11I M, with Ihe president, or Just II short
or a neeesnr,v two-thlrds vote, At one
time In the roll cull tho-e lighting to pass
the bill over the veto were ninth elated,
ns the eti) vvns In their f.ivor, but on tho
second cull tho cuckoos rallied to tho sup
port of the president and among them
visibly were many fellows who are about
to go out of congress mid who lit this
time nre very anxious about the little mat
ter of seuirlng nil appointment from the
president, and they seized upon the oppot
tnnlty to do something ihnt would attract
the attention of the pfcsldeut and bring
about an opportunity.
The vote was so e!op thit the friends
ot the plan feel much dlsgiistd over their
defeat. It was deemed not advisable at
that time to mnke the effort to bring up
the Oklnhoma Central leto. Delegate
l'lynn had mustered the Republicans lo
support the olher bill with the hope ot
reaching f.ivoinble action on the bill of
so much Interest to Oklnhoma.
The wires have been hot with messages
from parties In Oklahoma either Interested
In the Oklahoma Central Company or In
terested In the development of the country
along the proposed Hue, demanding that
ever) thing possible be done to get the
bill through. It was even concluded by
Sir. Sidney Clarke, of Oklahoma Clt, who
has been working for the passage of the
bill, that It might be possible to let a new
bill through that would avoid the three
objections raised by the president In the
veto. Such 11 bill was prepared and sent
to the committee on Indian nffnlrs In the
spnate when Chairman Jones said he would
not consider a bill of this sort Intended to
meet the objections that hud been raised
b) the president. He felt very warm
over the new line or vetoes being Issued
by the president and thus It happened that
this plnn railed The en.itor Insisted that
the effort should be made to pass the bills
over th veto and ho guiranteed that It
they rot through the house he would ee
to It thnt they were shoved thiough the
senate. Hut the plan so fnr having failed
It is likely that the people of Oklahoma
will he unable to avoid the commercial
damage done by the eto. it an oppor
tunity should present itself another ctTort
will be made to overcome the veto on the
Oklahoma Central, but there Is small hope
or finding the opportunity.
It Is almost Impossible to estimate the
damage to the Southwestern country by
this action of the president In conformity
to the suggestions of the Indian lobby,
who want a chance to hi ickmnll nil en
terprises of this sort compelled to pass
through the Indian country. It will not
onl) delay building operations during the
remainder of the administration, but will
give encouragement to the hands of finan
cial bandits In that country who will con
tinue to harass enterprises.

Union Pat Hie It illroad mid Denier llauks
and Sterth nits sut 1 esfull) s.Tin-
tlleil by sh trper.
Denier, Col., Slareh 3 One of tho most
systematic nnd Ingenious check raising
ever successfully tried In Ameticu. has Just
been unearthed In this city, the victims
being the Pnlon PaclHc Hallway Company,
nearly every bank In Denver and several
dr) goods and other houses Tho methods
show the swindlers to be masters and ns
daring as they are dishonest.
Hurl) last month the Union Pacific pay
car left Omaha on its regulir monthly trip
to Salt Lake City with the wages of the
coinpaii)'n emplo)es. Closely following the
car came a gang of check raisers and Its
members left the marks of their skill with
,u Id, Ink nnd pen In nearly every town
where Union Pacific employes reside. The
full extent of their operations nnd the
loss to the company or those who took the
i.ilsed salarv checks Is not yet fully known,
but enough has leuked out to show that the
1 heck raisers h.wc netted thousands of
dollars by this swindle.
The lull force of the Union Pacific de
tective corps Is at work on tho case, as
well as thp police authorities in Denver
and all other towns along the line. The
gang visited the hotels and saloons most
frequented by rallioid men, where a large
portion of the checks had been cashed and
bought them up. In value the checks
lunged from $10 to SIM, but each one was
skillfully i.ilsed to SHO and passed for thnt
amount at banks and stores. In every in
stance the rilsed check was tendered for
omo Minll purchase, so thnt the gang got
nearly the entire amount In cash.
In Denier the checks ultimately reached
different city banks, where they were pro
nounced all right and forwarded to Omiha.
Tho Union Pacific auditor then pissed nil
the $110 checks ns being O K and com
menced the balance M'hen the returned
1 hecks were compared with tne stubs of
the check book, the fact became apparent
th it the checks had been tampered with
and work was at once commenced by the

The preinillng Impression that women
nro curious, says the Philadelphia Hecorcl,
gained some gtound in front of a Chestnut
street dr) goods store yesterdav nt fre
quent intervals, when tho sidewalk In from
of 0110 of the windows became blocked bv
the crowd of women who pushed nnd
cuished one another to get a view at some
thing or other An Investigation disclosed
tho fact that a heavy piece- of clith had
beet! Instened over the front of tho win
dow, completely shutting nut a view nf ihe
Intei lor, but which could be moved enough
ut either sldu to permit ono person it a
time to seo the lino of goods Inside. With
out ihe cloth coveilng the window would
not have proved more attractive than any
of the others, but ns It was, feK nf nP
passing women wem too busy to fall to
wait their turn and get a ptcp nt what
was behind the screen.

One evening while John Addlngton Sy
moncls was at Oxford, ho dined with Pro
fessor Jovvett. Alter dinner the latter sat
staring nt the lire, nnd would not speak,
but et he did not seem to want Symonds
10 go. At last he spoke oracularly: "When
I don't su) an) thing, people fancy I am
thinking nbout something. Generally I
am thinking about nothing; at all. Good
night." At another time ho said: "Sir.
Snluburnc is a most curious young man.
He used to bring mo long nnd eloquent
essa)s. Ho hud a leiy romargable power
of language; but It was all language, t
could never find that he vvas following1
uny line of thought."
At a dinner given In London by a well
known literary man, an equally well
known author and correspondent was most
ciithusls.T'tlc In his pi also of Wagner, not
onlv us a composer of music, but as a
poet. "I have no doubt,' he said, with
gte.it eirnestness, "that In the years to
come SVagner will be ranked nbove Hee
thoien and Schiller." "1 quite agree with
)ou," responded Alma Tadema, who was
one of the cumpan) ; "for certainly," he
continued, as the author turned a face
beaming with delight at this unexpected
support toward him "certainly no one can
deny that Wagner is a liner musician than
Schiller and a greater poet than Bee
thoven." One day the Austrian ambassador to the
federal diet. Count nechberg, lecelved a
dispatch lnsiiuctlntr him to vote with Prus
sia for a certain Impoitnnt measure, ac
companied with .1 confidential letter direct
ing him to Induce the lepresentatives of
the other Germin states to vote against
the measure and thus defeat It. In his
haste ho handed tho wrong paper to Bls
maick, who read it and returned It with
tho remark: "There must be some mistake
here." Itechberg siw his blunder, and
grew pale and excited. "Don't bo dis
turbed," said Hlsmarck; "jou did not In
tend to give me this document, and there
fore sou have not given It to me, and I am
vv holly Ignorant of Its contents." In fact,
he made no mention of It in his official re
ports, and thus won Ilechborg's gratitude,
besides having him henceforth "on tlm
Catkin!, on one occasion when at
Weimar, vvas placed next to Goethe at a
fashionable dinner pirty. Cntalanl knpw
nothing of Goethe; but. being struck In
itio fine appearance of the poet, she asked
the gentleman on her side what was his
name "The celebrated Goethe, mudame,"
was the rcpl)-, "Ah ses Pray on what In
strument does ho pl.i) ?" was tho rejoinder,
"lie Is not a performer, matlame; he Is the
renowned author of 'Weithci. Oh, yes,
)cs, I remember," said Cntalanl; and, turn
ing to tho lenerable poet, she addressed
him. "Ah, sir, what an admirer I am of
Weither'. A low bow followed In ac
knowledgment "I never," continued the
lively lady "I never lead an) thing half so
laughable In all my life. What a capital
f.nce It Is, sir'" "Slud.inie," said the
poet, looking serious, "the 'Sorrows of
Werthei' a tarce-'" "Oh, yes; never vvas
.instiling so exquisitely ridiculous," te
joineil Catalanl, still laughing heartll).
It turned out that the lady had been
talking all the while of a parod.v of
"Wertber," which had been performed at
one of the minor theaters of Paris. But
fancy the mortification of tho poet!
Though vcrv fond of stories, and an ex
cellent lacontour himself, Rubinstein was
rather taciturn Once, it Is reported, a
Scotch friend of his, whom ho liked very
much, went home with him one night after
a concert at Glasgow. Both gentlemen
sat down to tea and cigarette?, and ns
midnight struck they hid not exchanged a
word rinally the guest risked a bold and
novel query: "Do s'ou like neethoien?"
Rubinstein emptied his cup and said, soft
ly: "Beethoven good" Half nn hour later
came another question: "And how do 5-011
like W.iKliei' To which Rubinstein,
throwing away a cigarette: "Wagner not
good" Hiving exhausted his .stock of In
qulslllveness, the Scotch friend of the Rus
sian pianist got up to bid his host a pleas
ant rist ' Stav set, my filend," said Ru
binstein; "I like )Oiir convers itlon very
much" And both lemalned still drinking
tea and smoking cigarettes In profound
silenco until 3 a. m. struck, when thev
wished ono another good night and parted.
William Bradford, the American nrtlst,
hud begun life nK a business man, and nev
er quite overcame tho traditions ot trade.
With this was combined a rigid conscien
tiousness, derived from his Quaker un
cestrv. He and Van Heeot were living at
one time In New Bedford. Van Beest was
a genuine swashbuckler, gifted with unus
ual eloquence In the nit of piofnne swear
ing Once Van Heest n-quested Bradford
to lefuiicl him a loan of $3n. When the lat
ter piolested that It was Inconvenient to
return It then, and pleaded for time, Van
Hetst let llya volley of red-hot oaths,
swearing that he must hnvo tho money
then and there With considerable reluc
tance Bradford handed him a KM note. Van
Ilcet thereupon proceeded, with tho utmost
nonchalance, to light his pipe with tho bill
Completely oierconie by such un amazing
,n t nf folly, following bald on such a blast
of profanity, Bradford left tne room in a
state of stupefaction After ho had gone,
Van Heest buist out laughing, and took
tho bill from his pocket, telling the by.
stnnders that tho bill he h id actually used
to light his pipe with wns a counterfeit
fifty that he hud dexterlously substituted
fot tho genuine bill, and that ho got tho
money from Bradford at that particular
tlmo expressly to play oft this trick on
