Iimpectlou of Live Cattle.
WASHINGTON , August 2. Congress
man Stockbridge of Maryland has com
pleted the favorable report ordered bj
the house committee on commerce or
the bill which has already passed the
senate providing for the inspection ol
live cattle and beef products intended
for export to foreign countries. This
bill , it will be remembered , is the out
come of the long and exhaustive inves
tigation made by a special senatorial
committee into the transportation oi
meat products. Mr. Stockbridge's re
port will point out that during the lasl
year there were exported abroad 829-
271 cattle. It is a well known fact
that the government of Great Britain
has always suspected American cattle
of being tainted with pleuro-pneu-
monia , and the existence of this
disease has furned the reason
for British restriction , which re
quires that all cattle imported
into Great Britain from the United
States shall" be killed upon the docks
within ten days after landing. It is es
timated that these restrictions cause
American cattle to sell from $10 to $15
per head less than cattle of tbe same
quality which are exported from Can
ada , and which are not restricted by
this law , all this arising from the fact'
that the American cattle must be sold
at once and without the opportunity of
being held for a better market , or un
til they have recovered from the in
variable bad effects of a long sea voy
age. On the basis of a difference of
only $10 per head the loss during the
last year would amount to § 3,200,000.
Great Britain has given us to under
stand that these restrictions would be
very promptly removed if the United
States would provide for a careful in
spection of our cattle before exporta
tion. British feedsrs are agitating the
question of allowing American store
cattle admission , and nothing but the
existence of pleuro-pneumonia in our
territory delays the accomplishment of
this object. The introduction of a
rigid system of inspection before ship
ment would prevent the exportation of
diseased cattle. It is easy to see that
the increased rate of $10 per head
for exported cattle would react upon
prices here and materially increase the
price received by the farmer for all
cattle sold. This increase of prices
would also of course materially en
hance the value of the whole stock of
cattle in the country. There is , there
fore , no clearer way in which more
can be done for the prosperity of the
farmers than to hasten the thorough
eradication of pleuro-pneumonia and
to prevent such cattle as are diseased
from being exported. The same argu
ment applies to Germany and France ,
both of which countries have , by their
rigid laws , almost prohibited the im
portation of American meat. Both
countries have given the United States
to understand , too , that they , like
Great Britain , are willing to remove
these restrictions provided the cattle
and the meat are subjected to rigid in
spection before shipment. Mr. Stock-
bridge expects to submit his report at
an early day.
They Iflust Reduce Rates.
WASHINGTON , August 2. The inter
state commerce commission will issue
an order to take effect on September
1 , in regard to the reduction of rates
on food products based on its recent
report to the senate. This case is one
of the most important yet brought be
fore the commission which has given
it almost precedence over other cases.
The order is accompanied by the opin
ion of the commission , overruling pro
tests and motions for want of jurisdic
tion. The reductions mc.dc apply only
to born , oats , wheat and flour
carried from Iowa , Missouri , Kansas
and Nebraska to St. Louis and the
Mississippi river. The reduced rates
are from the Missouri river to Chicago
on corn and oats 17 cents , and wheat
and flour 20 cents per hundred pounds.
From Kansas and Nebraska points
corn 18 to 23 cents , wheat 21 to 27
cents. The reduction extended 200
miles into Nebraska and 250 miles in
Kansas from the Missouri river. Where
rates are fractional the roads may
charge even cents , which considera
bly modifies the reductions. No
reductions are required which will
leave the road less than six
and one-half mills per ton per mile for
hauls not longer than 500 miles , nor
less than six mills for any distance. As
to rates east of the Mississippi , the
commission says : 'The rates from Chicago
cage and from St. Louis and the Mis
sissippi river now charged OE. corn ,
oats , wheat and flour to the eastern ,
seaboard are not found to be excessive.
The charges on other principal food
products'between the Mississippi and
the seaboard are involved in pending
complaints to be heard on petition and
answers , therefore no order as to these
rates and charges will now be issued. "
They Will Flee to America.
YORK , August 2. The edict of
practical banishment which the czar
has pronounced against the Jews in
will have an important effect in this
country. Prominent New York He
brews say that the great majority of
the banished million will make their
way as soon as possible to America ,

which is the only land to which
they turn with favor. Many
of the Immigrants will , of
cecessity be almost without means.
There will first arise the question
of their admissibility under the law
excluding all perso-n liable to be
come public charges. Superintendent
Weaver of the immigration bureau says
ho anticipates a repetition in its worst
form of the rush of Russian immi
grants to this country in 1872. Ho be
lieves that 60 per cent of them will
come to America. "The law for the
exclusion of paupers was designed for
just such emergencies as this , " Super
intendent Weaver says , "and I shall
enforce it strictly. " *
Stabbed With a Stlllctto.
DENVEK , Colo. , Aug. 2. Steven
*
Zimmer , supposed to reside at
Hastings , Neb. , was stabbed at a late
hour yesterday afternoon at the corner
of Twentieth and Market streets by
Ida Jones , a colored prostitute , and
died a few minutes later. Zimmer
had been drinking some and became
involved in a dispute with the woman
and is said to have struck her , when
she stabbed him with a long stilletto ,
the blade entering the fleshy part of
the thigh and severing an artery. He
bled to death in twenty minutes.
Zimmer does not seem to be well
known here , although he is a member
of the stone-cutters' union. He had a
letter in his possession written in Ger
man , dated in July at Hastings , and
evidently written by his wife. His
body is at the morgue. The woman is
now in jail.

Independent Farmers' Convention at
Lincoln.
LINCOLN" , Neb. , July 30. The larg
est gathering of farmers that ever met
in convention in Nebraska assembled
at 2 p. m. yesterday in Bohannan's
hall , this city.
Every county in the state was repre
sented , and the delegates were farmers
and laboring men , and the politician
was not seen among them. The hal
was crowded and the murmur of many
voices was deafening.
President Powers of the farmers' al
liance called the convention to ordei
at 2:15. He nominated Allen Root ol
Douslus county for chairman and C. A.
Mayberry of Pawnee county for secre
tary. Both nominations prevailed.
The chairman then chose the follow
ing as a committee on credentials : J.
N. Thompson of Lancaster , J. M.
Hober of Ulrich , J. C. Heatherington
of Gale , J. Clark of Cass and R. E.
Martin of Ouster.
The committee on credentials re
ported that seventy-seven counties
were entitled to a representation of 868
delegates.
The temporary organization was at
this time made permanent. J. H.
Craddock was made assistant secretary.
All resolutions were referred to the
committee without debate.
A motion was made that the state
central committee be selected one from
each county. This carried. Another
motion was made that the chairman of
each delegation bo the central committeeman -
teeman of his countj * . This motion
was lost , and then a motion was made
and carried that the chairman of each
delegation canvass his delegation and
announce the preference of each dele
gation.
The report of the committee on res
olutions was read , Jay Burrows acting
as spokesman.
The eight-hour clause caused much
discussion. The farmers did not want
the eight-hour law on their farms.
Burrows spoke and said that he was in
favor of it , and that he didn't think it
would make any difference to farm
hands. The Knights of Labor , by E.
Leighton , want it , and a vote was
taken on the amended plank , and the
following resolutions were adopted :
THE PLATFORM.
Wo , the undersigned citizens of the
state of Nebraska , hereby declare our
adhesion to the following fundamental
principles , and demand that they be
enacted into law , viz. :
Our financial system should be re
formed by the restoration of silver to
its old time place in our currency and
its free and unlimited coinage on an
equality with gold , and by the increase
of our money circulation until it
reaches the sum of $50 per capita ; and
all paper issues necessary to secure
that amount should be made by the
government alone , and beull legal
tender for all debts , public and private.
That land monopoly should be abolished
ished either by limitation of ownership
or graduated taxation of excessive
holdings , so that all the competent
should have an opportunity to labor ,
secure homes and become good citizens
and alien ownership should be pro
hibited. '
That the railroad system , as at pres
ent managed , is a system of spoliation
and robbery , and th < t its enormous
bonded debt at fictitious valuations is
i j-sorbing the substance of the people
in'the interest of millionaires ; that the
general government should own an.i
operate the railroads and telegraph ,
and furnish transportation at cost , the
same as mail facilities are now furn
ished ; and that our legislature shall
enact a freight rate law which shall fix
rates no higher than those now in force
in Iowa.
We demand that our state and na
tional system of taxation , including
the tariff , shall be so adjusted that
wealth will bear its just burdens , in
stead of our farmers , laborers , mer
chants and mechanics being compelled
to pay , as at present , by far the largest
portion of public expense.
That the soldiers of the late war
shall receive a liberal service pension.
That we demand the adoption of the
Australian ballot system.
That eight hours shall constitute a
legal day's work excepting for agri
cultural labor.
We further declare that the politi
cal machinery in this state has been
controlled by the corporate power for
the plunder of the people and the en
richment of itself , and we have en
tirely lost confidence in the efficacy of
that machinery for the enactment of
just and the repeal of unjust laws.
We , therefore , hereby give our voice
for the call of a people's independent
state convention , to nominate pure and
able men for the different state offices
on ttie principles named above ; and we
hereby pledge ourselves , if pure and
honorable men are so selected , to vote
and work for their election.
And we hereby invite all men , with
out regard to past or present political
affiliations , to join us in this , our effort
for pure government , for relief from
the shackles of party politics and the
domination of corporate power in our
public affairs.
Nominations being now in order , a j
motion was made that all nomination |
speeches be squelched. This was mod
ified to read that' all nominating-1
speeches bo limited to three minute * ,
and prevailed.
The following state ticket was , after
a number of ballots , placed In nomina
tion :
Governor , John Powers.
Lieut-Governor , William H. Deck.
Secy of State , Chaa. N. Mayborry.
Treasurer , J. V. Wolfe.
Auditor * , John Beatty.
Attorney-General , J..W. Edgerton.
Land Commissioner , W. F. Wright.
While the committee on credentials
were out C. H. Van Wyckwas lustily
called for. Ho came to the stage and '
'I
was mot with tremendous cheers. He
said that he could not speak , but that
they were here for business. "Equal
justice to all special privileges to
none , " was the platform and their re
ligion.
Ho roasted in a vigorous manner the
board of transportation , and said that
after the members pleaded guilty to-
serving the railroads , the republican
party threw two < 9l them overboard
and saved the other. He wanted a.
legislature and state government that
would wring the water out of railroad
stocks , Ho , was willing the railroads-
should make a good rate of interest ,
but robbery , as it had been practiced
in this state , must cease. The day of
special privilege must end.
Powers was called for and responded.
Mr. Powers was greeted with three-
cheers. He said ho could not come
before them with the eloquence of a
Van Wyck. He was just a working
man. He came before the convention
as one of the people. When the gov
ernment was established it was a pee
ple's government. But designing men
finally inaugurated another system and
that was that people bo governed by
parties. Ho proposed to try to show
that people had been bled by unprinci
pled men. The plan adopted was to
divide the people into great facetious
that this people might be arrayed
against each other. The people had
had no chance to govern themselves ,
but had been plunged in desperate
political fights , and while the fight was
going on , the sharks plundered them.
A Female Deputy.
CHEYENNE , Wyo. , July 31. Sheriff
Sparhawk , of Fremont county , passed
through here yesterday .en route for
Joliet , 111. , in charge of three prison
ers sentenced to the penitentiary.
Montgomery , the murderer of "Kid"
Fordham , was one of them. His sent
ence is for life. The others were Jess
E. Davis , who gets five years for rob
bing a Chinaman , and W. A. Clark
two years for horse stealing. Sheriff
Sparhawk's official guard in charge of
the criminals is Mrs. Sparhawk , his
wife , a woman of 22. Mrs. Sparhawk
is a vigilant guard on this trip. She-
is armed with two six-shooters. She-
is one of the most expert rifle and pistol
tel shots in the west , and her prison
ers are not likely to attempt an es
cape.
A Revolution Feared.
LONDON , August 1. A revolution is
feared in Zanzibar. The SO'I
brother is said to be implicated in a
conspiracy to overthrow the reigning
monarch. He is believed to have-
powerful backers. The sultan is mak
ing preparations to meet any treacher
ous movement and the guards have
been strongly reinforced. The crisis
may prove to be an important one for-
Zanzibar , for should civil war or an
archy result an excuse would be offered
For the intervention of England and
Germany and the possible extinction
f Zanzibarian nationality.
Kcrnmlrr In Despair.
AUBUKN , N. Y. , August. . Recent
developments have more than con
firmed the truth of the statement that
Xemmler , the condemned murderer , is-

ment of all hope and the consequent
reaalization of his utterly lost condition - .
tion never came to him with such ter
rible force as the other night. All
night long as he tossed and tumbled
on his narrow cot he cried aloud in his-
despair :
"I wish it were over. * '
He moaned time and again , and his-
utter lack of all power to control his
fears wa's pitiable to behold. The
cause of this sudden and unconquer-
ble despair was the noise of prepara
tion in the adjacent room for the exe
cution , which the prisoner could not
help hearing through the doorway
which connects his cell with the cham
ber of death.
