The Cowboy's Proof.
"Jack" Vance, a cowboy from the
ranch of the Butte Creek Cattle com
pany, was on trial at Alliance, Neb., on
a charge of shooting at a brakeman on
the Burlington railroad with intent to
kill him. He had received bis pay a
few days before and was engaged at
the time of the shooting in the pictur
esque pastime of painting the county
Vance vehemently denied any intent
to perforate the brakeman . He
told the court that, while it was true
that he did take out his revolver and
shoot after the brakeman who pushed
him off the train, he was merely giving
a Dre-arranged signal. He and a friend
had been down the road a few miles
and wanted to ride back to tbe nearest
station to the ranch, realizing that if
they were found by any of the train
orew they would be put off Jibe train.
If this occurred he should notify his
partner by firing his revolver once.
Tbe trainman, with visions of what
he believed was a narrow escape from
death, shook his bead, and tbe judge
looked unbelieving. Vance's cowboy
friend corroborated the story, but Bee
iDg his tale failed to reoeive credence,
the defendant asked the court to pleace
step outside. The jujge asked what
I'll prove my innocence, your hon
or," Vance said.
The court was curious and went out
side. So did the sheriff, lawyers and
spectators. Vance pulled dut his re
volver, and holding a postage stamp
clipped off each corner in succession.
Next be asked a spectator to suspend
a hickory nut from a thread. Walk
ing off thirty feet, he wheeled and at
the first shot out the thread. Taking
six tacks ha placed tbem looeely
in a piece of wood. This
he placed against a post distant
twenty-five yards. Borrowing a watch
from a bystander, he opened tbe face
for a mirror, (hot with his back to
the mark, and drove each tack into
the wood without a miss.
The brakeman had been looking on
In openmouthed wonder. As Vacce
concluded the brakeman stepped up to
the judge, and, tapping him on the

MANY NEW WARSHIPS
To Be Built In the Near Future- Con
struction Record To Be Broken
This year. Fire Battleships, Six
Armored Cruisers, Three Pro
tected Cruisers, and Five Sub
The coming year promises to be the
best in the history of the Navy depart-
nt, so far as the construction of new
ships is concerned, says a Washington
dispatch. Work is already under way
to increase tne navy, in accordance
with the recent legislation on the sub
fclva battle-ships, costing nearly
$5,000,000 eoh, six great armored
oruisers of 14,509 tonsdisplacement and
high speed, three protected cruisers,
similar in design to the Olympia, and
five submarine boats represent tbe
programme whioh the Navy Depart
ment now has to dispose of, and to aslc
bids on. Every one of these craft will
be built at private yards.
With tbe large number of ships al
ready on the stooks. and tbe vast
amount of commercial business being
executed, the prospects for an exceed
ingly busy period in the ship building
world are most promising, and bid fair
to exceed in tonnage any previous re
cord of the conutry.
It has bsen decided to adhere to the
policy of letting all contracts for ship
building to private yaros ratber than
risk the dangers of delays and higher
cost by undertaking to ouild them at
the government yards.
With tbe construction of fourteen
ships in proEpeot, the yards will be
crowded to more than their capacity,
but tbe preliminary work of designing
will be finished by next fall. Vacations
for Navy Department employes, of a
certain class, will in consequence
be vary brief this summer.
A partial agreement ha bsen reach -
a to have the two new battle-ships of
tbe same size and power as those au
thorized last year, and for which plans
have been decided upon, and a circular
letter preparred asking for bids.
These vessels are over 14,000 tons dis
placement, have a speed of eighteen
knots and terrific battery power. They
are without the superimposed turrets,
and have 12-inch guns as the largest
The cruisers will cost as much as the
battle-ships, are to be the equal if not
the superior of the finest of their class
in foreign services. Designs for these
ships will be drawn and it is contem
plated to duplicate tbem for tbe olaes
authorized this session. Thus eiz. of
the armored orutser class are to be
built, costing when in commission pro
bably 930,000,000. The three protected

St. Oermaine is no imposter.

Has a certified record of 16,000 hands read at Omaha Exposition at

Has Diplomas of Graduation from Cbelro, Oxenford, Allen and St
Germaine, and is the only palmist in the West with such a record. By
her eoience she tells all of life's events and can give reliable readings
cruisers, duplicates of the flagship
Olympia in a measure, are to be design
ed in order to improve upon tbe Olym
pia in many places, and especially to
give greater battery power and steam
ing radius, lo produce these results
they will have greater displacement,
and perhaps be more costly vessels.
In addition to these heavy fighters
there is a provision for five submarine
boats, to be built on tbe general design
of tbe Holland and Plunger, and to
cost about $170,000 each.
This completes tbe entire program
me. Tbe cost can not be estimated,
but appropriations will have to be
made at least for the next three years
to cover the additional expenses.

Iowa, who made a speech in nomination
Tbe mention of Roosevelt's name
was the signal for a demonstration
that equalled if It did not exceed that
with which McKtnley had been greet
ed. The New York delegation led in the
cheering. The standards bearing the
names of the respective state delega
tions were selzad and borne around
the ball and amid yelling and whistling
some one started tbe song, "There
will be a hot time In the old town to
night." This was taken up by apparently
everybody In the hall. Two standards
bearing tbe names Ohio and New York
were tied together, one above the
other, aud passed around, while the
placard declaring that Kansas was the
first to declare for R3oeevelt for vice
president was displayed.
Iiedies joined in the demonstration,
waving their parasols and in some
oases silken flags, with which they had
provided themselves. It was just 7
minutes before . even the vigorous
pounding of the heavy gavel could be
heard; calling the convention to order
again, and. still longer before Lodge
could make himself heard.
Other nominating speeches were
made by Murray of Massachusetts and
Ashton of Wasbington, with a merry
one by Depew, after which the roll was
called. Roosevelt received 925 votes,
one delegate refusing to vote. The
nomination was deolared unanimous
amid deafening cheerB.
Lodge was then appointed chairman
of the committee to notify McKinley,
and Wolcott chairman to notify Roose
velt. The usual resolutions of thanks were
passed, and at two twelve, the ele
venth republican convention adjourned
sin. e die.
