Chadron. Xeb., May 10. There was a
very exciting scene in court . here yester
day at the habeas corpus proceedings in
the case of Jones and Walker, the two

Looked for Some "Gun riav."
Every one present knew that Dahlman
had the reputation of getting anything he
went after and great trouble wa9 expect
ed. The excitement was intense. Tlie
cattlemen at once sided off together and
the rustlers kept together in another part
of the room and had their revolvers in
their hands. There were a number of
ladies in the courtroon who had gone
there to witness the trial and see the pris-
oners ud they began to scream. Men

that offered a chance to see the final out
Dahlman Kept Himself Cool.
Dahlman, the coolest man in the room,
then counseled with the authorities from
Wyoming, and asked if they would pro

seems, could not not do so or could not
find a leader to say so, and fter a short

An Alleged Cowardly Scheme of Assassi
nation. The habeas corpus proceedings resulted
in the purpose for which they were in
tended, aud the haste with which the men
were run out of town is accounted for by
the report that the 10:15 train from the
west was loaded with rustlers who in
tended to hold the witnesses at all haz
ards. Walker and Jones left Douglas
when they ran away under the guidance of
O. V. Witt, a liveryman of that town and

it looks as though there was something
Witt's Suspicious Conduct.
He says that after they were out from
Douglas about fifty miles they came to a
place where they could see some timber
and which was very lonesome-looking.
Witt suddenly pulled up and said he was
lost. He told them to wait yiere and he
would look for another road. Witt rode
a few rods away and without dismount
ing commenced lighting matches,one after
another. Thinking that was a signal to a
party secreted near by to murder them,
they rode rapidly np to Witt and asked
him what he meant by lighting matches.
Ordered Him to Move On.
Witt replied that he was lost and was
trying to look at his compass. Witt did
not think that the men were armed, but
they had each taken a revolver from the
sheriff of Converse county, and they told
Witt to pull out or they would shoot him.
Then they took the road and rode very
rapidly until daylight. After daylight
they halted at a ranch to get some re
freshments, and the lady asked them if
they met a party of twelve horsemen that,
he said, the day previons went in the di
rection of the place 'where Witt lighted
Witt Has Enough of Douglas.
Before leaving the court-room yesterday
Witt handed a bill of sale of his Douglas
livery barn to Deputy Sheriff Parker with
the remark that he had no more use for
the country. As be handed the bill to
Parker he said: Til give you this' bill of
ale and get out of the coun
try. I don't want my bone to bleach
on the prairie of Wyoming." Before the
trouble is over there will be more men
killed In Wyoming than all the Kentucky
feud ever destroyed. Buffalo is the head
quarter for the rustler, and nearly the
whole city is made up of rustlers or those
men who sympathize with them to such
an extent that they would take part in
any plan to oppose the cattlemen.

CARDINAL MANNING'S SUCCESSOR.
He Is not Much In Harmony With His
Predecessor's Methods. .
London, May lO.-Dr. Vaughan, who
Ts inducted Sunday as archbishop of
Westminster, has not yet received the
pallium. Until Dr. Vaughan receives his
pallium a part of a Roman Catholic
archbishop's vestment, which is made for
ana buried with him he will, strictly
speaKin2,.be only the archbishop-elect of
I Westminster. Dr. Vaughan will evident-
iy pursue in some respects a different
course from the late Cardinal Manning.
To an allusion to the part Cardinal Man
ning took in regard to the labor agitation
Dr. Vaughan replied that it. appeared to
him that the employes of labor and the
peeple employed in labor were the
people to discuss these questions. It was
not for a person in his position to lay
down how many hours a man should work.
Will Help Whenever He Can.
But it did appear to him that the sooner
f-iple got to understand each other Vnd
to realize that they must give and take,
the better it would be for all concerned;
and if he could see his way if it was man
ifestly for the interests of the community
he would do what he could to bring
about that consummation; as no one who
had the interests of the community at
heart could refrain from rendering any as
sistance in bis power. On the subject of
temperance Archbishop Vaughan is much
more liberal than wa Cardinal Manning.
He is content to urge some such restric
tion as only drinking at meals, and not
frequenting public houses, being thank
ful for even the smallest success in this
. Impossible to Shut Off the Beer.
To attempt to stop beermaking or beer
drinking in a couu'.ry where it has existed
since the time of the Druids, he considers
not only Quixotic, bat utterly impossible;
and instead of wasting effort, in attempt
ing the impossible he woulj prefer to
labor in a direction that cannot be but
productive of good the founding of counter-attraction
l to the public house, to
which men could take their wives and
families and enjoy some little relaxation
His Ideas on Education.
But it is on education that the new
archbishop speaks his mind freely. He
said that he feared an enormous number
of men are drifting away from Christiias
ity;( and this he ascribed to the uGodlens"
system of education in the board schools.
The whole future of the country, he point
ed out, will depend upon the education
now being given to the children; yet
thousands are being educated now upon
whom Christianity will sit very lightly
indeed. If only the Christian denomina
tions had a little more courage of their
convictions and would insist upon equal
terms for denominational schools and
board schools his hopes for the future
would be brighter.
Makes an Example of France.
He said with emphasis: "Continue to
educate the children without religion defl
niieay laugm, ana social Questions and ibe
labor question will become more pressing
and difficult as time goes on." As an apt
illustration of his argument he cited the
anarchist doings in France. "I should
have thought," ie said, "that people see
ing what is going on there, and what w
may come to in this country, would seethe
necessity of teaching the principles and
doctrine of Christianity to the children;
that they would see that by training chil
dren to be clever and intellectual without
religion they are simply strengthening the
mental powers to be used on the side of
selfishness, greed, or practical disorder or
BIG STRIKE OF STONE WORKMEN.
Everybody Connected with the Trade
Quits Work at Gotham.
New York, May 10. One thousand five
hundred men connected with the paving
cutters national union went ont on a
strike yesterday. The strikers represent
nearly all of the stone cutting and hand
ling trade in this city. Among them are
paving stonecutters, the granite stonecut
ters, the blue stonecutters, the pavers, the
rammermen, the longshoremen . who
handle paving stones, the blacksmiths
who dress the tools, and many other.
Work has been completely blocked in pav
ing a number of thoroughfares through
out the city.
Their Course Seems Plain Enough.
The contractors are in a quandary, having
been notified by the city authorities that
unless they continue the work they have
contracted to do in the matter of street
paving their contracts will be declared
null and void. The contractors say they
are balked, and do not know what to do
in the premises. The strike has extended
to Brooklyn, where 500 men are out. There
is hardly an important city in the union
that is not affected by the present strike.
The strike is in support of the strike of the
quarry men in New England against tne
employers which was begun a week ago.
The Cause of all the Trouble.
The cause ot the strike is the changing of
the date for the signing of the wage scale
by the men from May 1 to Jan. 1. This
change was made by the contractors with
out consulting the men, and the latter de
cided that the change was not identical
with their interest and consequently
struck. The contractor hare an associa
tion known a thp New England Contract
ors association. Mr. Pierce, one of tue
contractor, said that the proposed change
of time for signing; the contract waa mad
merely to protect the contractor. The
signing of the cutter' contract, he said,
always caused a number of men to go out
on strike, and th shipment of atone
from the quarries was therefore delayed,
and building contract thereby jeopard

New Orleans, May 10. It was learned
last night from Captain do Lahous
saye, who passed there yesterday aft
ernoon, that the great Morgan
sea levee in Pointe Coupee parish
the biggest levee in Louisiana broke
yesterday during a rainstorm, in conse
quence of the great pressure of the swollen
river against it. The levee is twenty-five
feet high, from sixty to 150 feet wide and
a mile long. It is one of the ' most im
portant levees along the lower Mississippi
and parted at a point where a break will
cause the greatest possible amount of
Will Cause a Loos of Millions.
A later report says that a tremendous
body of water is pouring through the
crevasse, and that the entire country f roin
tne river to the gulf will be flooded. T he
damage will be enormous and in the neigh
borhood of $9,000,000. The Morgansea
levee is situated near Point Coupe in the
very center of the Teche country; the be-1
sugar lands in the south will be utterly
destroyed. Thirteen parishes will suffer
and there can be no crops this year.
Several Parishes That Will Suffer.
Auiong the parishes which will be
deluged are: Pointe Coupee, Iberville,
West Baton Rouge, Assumption, Ascen
sion, La Fourche, Iberia, St. Mary and
St. Martin parishes, and it may flood all
the country between it and the gulf.
Great fears are entertained for the towns
and the villages in the line of the flood.
The greatest excitement is prevalent in
What It Cost in 1884.
This levee broke in 184 and caused tlO.-
000,000 of damage, cutting down the sugar
crop or tlie state materially. It was par
tially broken in 1S90, but enough of it was
neia men to reduce the amount of dam
age. The United States government as
sisted in rebuilding it boti times.
HOMES INVADE"D BY WATER.
A Distressing State of Affairs at Lincoln,
Neb. Destitution Probable.
Lincoln, Neb,, May 10. It has been
raining here steadily for thirty-six hours.
Salt Creek bottoms are flooded and hun-
"fanfnielr have been compelled to
move out of their homes. The water in
tbe western part of Lincoln is over one
mile in width, and is rising at the rate of
six inches an hour. Between 200 and 300
houses, have been invaded by the flood,
and their occupants have been compelled
to move. Suffering and destitution will
be great, as the most of the people driven
from their homes are among the poorest
classes and without means. The city and
county authorities are uniting to relieve
The Annual High Water Ram page.
CHICAGO, May 9. The Mississippi, Mis
souri, Illinois and otner western rivers
are all out of bank and over the low lands
where not protected by levees. In places,
notably as regards the "Sny" levee, these
embankments are in danger. Thousands
of acres of farm lands, much of it plant
ed, in Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana
and Ohio are under water, and the damage
to crops is inestimable at this time, but
will be very great. No loss of life is re
ported. The water is within a few inches
of the danger line at St. Louis.
