Here a demand was made for the Italian
from Jailer Crews. He refused to n'wo
Bp his prisoner, when the mob, which was
well provided with picks and iron bars,
betrnn an attark on the front door of the
jail. The building is new and was
thought strong enough to resist any at
tacks which might be made upon it.
Gradually the crowd grew until probably

was paid to his commands or entreaties.

spectators to this horrible affair was a
boy, son of the negro, and to defend his
father he picked up a pitchfork and at
tacked the crowd, sticking the fork into
one of the men and killing him. The

DEMOCRACY IN NEBRASKA.
Kepresentat ive Itryan Talks About Its
Future in That State.
Omaiia, J ily 27. Representative Bryan
in an interv ew as to the future of Democ
racy in Nebraska said that the greatest
danger at pi fsent to the party arose from
the doubt entertained as to its attitude on
the money q-.ie-.tion. It is now by common
consent the paramount issue and the ac
tion of Deni'icrats in the state would have
much to do svith the question of whether
the party g ew or declined. "I jist spring
lej many opposed an expression on the
subject lest it should embarrass the na
tional conv.-nrion, and i.ow many fear
that to take a stand will embarrass them
selves iu the r caudidacy for office, or that
it will embaTass the administration.
"The eastern wing of the party is not re
strained by my such fear. It is openly
aggressive, a ud if our eastern friends speak
out, while w : hold our peace, our interests
will l.e disregarded. In this 'battle of Cie
standards' is leing fought the great con
test between plutocracy and democracy,
audin my judgment the future of the
Democratic party depends upon whih
side it takes. Nebraska is but one state,
but she is responsible for the right employ

TOUGH ON BANK OFFICIALS.
Two Kenvi-r fen Arrested I'nder the
s:ute Hanking Law.
Dexvm:, J:.ly 27. President M. J. Law
rence, of tne People's Savings bank, has
been arrested at his office in the People's
National ban i block on a warrant charg
ing grand larceny in c nnection with the
failure of the savings bank. The warrant
was issued tut of Justice LeBert's court
and is swo n to by W. M. Casey in behalf
of his wife, Sophie Casey, who is a depo.-.i-tor
to t he mnoiint of .1,S(K). The same
warrant upon which President Ijtwre-ice
was arrested also called f-ir the arrest of
Cashier K. '. Schrader upon the same
charge and hi too was arrested.
The charge upon which the p nceedings
are brought is that the bank received a de
posit from Mrs. Casey within thirty days
previous to tl e time of failure. This is al
leged to be .i violation of the state law,
and is held by that law to lie prima facie
evidence that the officials of the bank knew
that the bank was insolvent. This, uiiiijr
the law, makt s the officials liable to prose
cution for Urceny. Mrs. Casey made a
deposit on June '25 last. The bank close 1

Sax Fkaxsisco, July 27. The steamer
Australia has arrived here with news from
Honolulu of a secsatio al character.
When she left port the U. S. S. Boston and
Adams were in port, and the report was
that they would stay there awaiting in
structions from President Cleveland.
These instructions, it is said, will decide
the question of what shall be .done with
the islands. Should it be the decision
that ex-Jueen Iliuokal.ini be restored
ma ines will be landed. Any attempt on
the part of any person to proceed in riotous
manner will be promptly put down.' In
other words, it is considered highly prob
able that Lilinokal.ini will be restored to
the throne with the assistance of the
United States forces.
Significant tiift to Spreckels.
Prior to Spreckels' departure from Hon
olulu he was presented with a cane. Itborea
curious inscription, readingin part: "From
your fellow citizens, doomed also to die at
the hands of a murde society of the An

On he reverse side was a number of names,
that of Liliuokalani headi g the list and
being followed by that of Minister Blount.
Claus Spreckels, who has arrived from
H nolulu on the steamer Australia, states
in an interview that there seemed to be no
prospect of the United States government
annexing the Hawaiian islands. He is op
posed to annexation himself, and believes
that the islands would lie more pros erous
as an independent government than by be
ing attahed to some foreign power. He
thinks that the ex-queen should be re
stored to her throne,
New Annexation Treaty Drafted.
On the other hand there is news that the

treaty makes the islands apart of tae
United States; gives that government all
the public property: continues the exist
ing government and policy five years un
der the direction of a United States com
missioner to reside on the islands and have
veto power; prohibits Chinese immigra

otherwise leaves the immigration and la

the public debt, but the islands are to pay

belts, etc., hampered their action. No
