Taa first attempt to force the railroads
to permit the establishment of a grain
market in Omaha was msde Friday by
the Omaha Grain exchange and allied
interests by the filing of a suit in the
United States circuit court to compel
the Chicago & Northwestern toso adjust
its grain rates that Omaha will not be
discriminated against. The cause of the
filing of the suit was the issuing of a
tariff by the Northwestern December 28,
quoting through rates from Nebraska
points to Chicago which were from 2 to
4 cents less than the sum of the rates
into Omaha from the same stations and
the rate from Omaha to Chicago.
Schuyler was the scene of another
tragedy on the 7th inst. as the result of
the fast train service on the Union
Pacific. No. 2, the evening eastbound
fast train struck Frank Matejicek as he
was crossing the track just east of the
depot and killed him instantly. He was
evidently preoccupied, as he started
across, became bewildered upon hearing
the roar of the approaching train and
did not recover in time to save himself.
He mast have tuned half around in an
effort to clear the track, as he was going
aorth and the train was coming from the
wast and he was struck on his right side.
The tram did not stop at all which makes
it evident that the crew did not observe
what had been done. It has been bat

Taa Osuaa World-Herald says: The
autopsy held Satarday afternoon over
the body of TaosaastGeaUeman, the
Union Pacific watchawa who was shot
Thursday night white attempting to
arrest Henry Foster, has brought to light
the fact that death was due to oae of the
rarest and most interesting causes with
which medical and surgical men have to
desL 'Death was caused by what is
coaunonly known among physicians as
gas-baeillas, a rare and exceedingly dan
gerous form of germ, the more technical
term for which is diro-bscfllus-capsi-latns
ssrogansa. This is an exceedingly
minute micro-organism, said to be but
six-aullioaths of a meter long and three
tenths aullionths of a meter wide. This
little germ, when transplanted to a
favorable soil, multiplies with marvelous
rapidity and produces a deadly gas be
neath the akin of the patient who is so
unfortunate as to be infected with it.
Death usually results in less than
twenty-four hours, when billions of the
little bscdlli have bred in the system.
For a wound to become infected with
this little germ means sure death to the
patient, since the rapidity with which it
works renders it impossible for the phy
sician or surgeon to have any knowledge
of the fact that the wound has been so
infected. Infection in the case of Gen
tleman was caused by the leaden bullet
fired into his body. The case is one of
the greatest interest to physicians and
surgeons, inasmuch as deaths due to this
cause are very rare. Dr. Lavender who
performed the autopsy, and Dr. Upde
graff, who was the attending physician
of Gentleman in the hospital, will col
laborate in writing an article on this
subject for one of the medical journals."
The Nebraska Historical society will

Deputy Fish Comxisbioxee O'Brien
has reported that during the year just
closed the commission has placed 11,
910,767 fishes in the streams of Nebraska
a record-breaking achievement. What
is still more gratifying to lovers of the
rod and stream, the quality of the stock
"planted'' exeelb that of any previous
years, nearly half a million of the fish
being the very best varieties of brook
trout. The greater part of the trout
liberated this season were obtained from
the government without cost to the state,
and others were obtained in exchange
for ornamental fish raised in the state
hatcheries, so none have been expensive.
The trout furnished by the government
are "fingerings,'' which interpreted into
plain English means the size of a man's
finger, and will be fit for the pan within
a comparatively short time. The com
mission has made absolutely no failures
this year, and no money has been wasted
in useless experiments. Some streams
which flow into the Republican and
Cedar rivers are- thought to be good
trout waters and a limited number of
fingerlings of the most hardy variety
will be liberated in them next fall.
The republicans of Kansas will hold
an early convention, having fixed the
time for March 9 at Wichita. The state
committee expressed its desire for an
early convention in order that Kansas
might be among the first states to in

The hunting sportsmen around Co
lumbus have been somewhat interested
to learn the outcome of the case of P. E.
MeKillip of Humphrey before the
supreme coast. The following tele
graphic news from Lincoln tolls of the
derision of the court: The game laws
of Nebraska are valid and game wardens
may confiscate the guns of illicit hunters.
In the appeal of D. B. McMahon of
Boone county the supreme court takes
this view of the matter. In company
with W. E. Harvey and P. E. MeKillip,
McMahon was arrested on the charge of
having more than the legal namber of
prairiechickens in his possession. Arms
of the party were confiscated and an
appeal was token by the defendants,
attacking the validity of the law. The
court affirms the decision of the lower
court and sustains the whole act."
W.B. Backus, well known in and
around Columbus, who is now an attor
ney in Bonestoel, S. D., is being heard
from in regard to the opening of the
Rosebud reservation. Mr. Backus was
formerly superintendent of tha Genoa
Indian school. Telegraphic news from
Washington in Saturday's dailies con
tained the following: "a F. Luces aad
W. B. Backus of Bonestoel, & D attor
aeys sent to Washington by tha Com
mercial dab of that city, have arrived
and will appear before Indian Ooaaana-
Joaea tomorrow. They will be

to settlement. It is hoped by Messrs.

settlement. Messrs. Backas sad Laoas
assert that the aeosaauy twa4hirds vote
of the Indians can be secured in favor of
Representative Burke's proposition to
sell the lands at a uniform pries of S2L50
par acre. Commissioner Jones and oth
ers of the Indian service think the In

per acre, whieh is considered prohibitive
by those who have been to the land."

Mrs. Chris Meedel died suddenly of
heart disease Satarday morniag about 11
o'clock at her home six miles west of
Columbus.' She had stepped iatoabed
room to get an article, and soon after
was found by a grand child lying dead
on the floor. Mrs. Meedel had suffered
from heart trouble before, but her sud
den death was a shock to all her acquain
tances. Mr. Meedel was in town at the
time of her death.
Mrs. Meedel was born March 1, 1834,
in Germany and came to America in
1861, settling first in Pennsylvania and
one year later moving to Omaha. She
was first married to Peter J. Martz and
to them were born six children. Mr.
Martz was killed December 24, 1885,
while crossing the Union Pacific railroad
bridge, a train striking and killing him.
Mr. and Mrs. Meedel were married a

Gentleman Skat ani Killed
Friday's Omaha Bee contained the fol
lowing notice of the shooting of Thomas
Gentleman, a former resident of this
city, in Omaha:
Thomas Gentleman, 606 South Four
teenth street, for many years a special
detective in the employ of the Union
Pacific, was shot in the left groin about
9 Thursday evening by a man who was
Btoalingcoal from the cars at Fourteenth
street, near the Chicago Lumber com
pany'syards, where the shooting occured.
Gentleman was removed in the police
ambulance to the 8t Joseph hospital,
where Dr. J. E. Updegraff found the
wound to be a superficial one, the bullet
having taken a downward course and
lodging beneath the skin.
From a description given by Gentle
man, Henry Foster of 1001 South Six
teenth street was arrested soon after the
shooting. Foster denied having any
knowledge of the affair.
It is reported that Foster has been
driven away a number of times recently
from the coal cars in the same locality
where the shooting occurred last night.
When asked whether he had been around
the yards last evening he said he had not
left his house since the afternoon, but
this statement was contradicted by sev
eral who had seen him in the neighbor
hood during the evening."
Sunday's Bee contained the following
in regard to the arrest of Foster:
"When brought to the police station
Foster denied any knowledge of the
affair, saying that he had not left his
house during the evening. Saturday,
however, when confronted with a chain
of evidence he made a full confession.
He said that he and a lad, Patrick O'Con
nor, had gone down to the tracks and
that he had taken the weapon with him
as a matter of usual precaution, adding
that he was living alone. When Gentle
man approached him he thought he was
in for trouble and fired the shot before
the watchman got to him. The O'Con
nor boy has been held as a state witness.
Foster was entirely unmoved when
brought into Captain Mostyn's office last
night and advised of death of his victim.
'I can't help it It isn't worrying me.
You can bring him back if you want to,'
he said, in a manner that plainly showed
that the matter was not worrying him in
Late Friday evening word was received
here from Omaha of the death of Mr.
Gentleman. His two brothers, Robert
and William, went from Platte Center to
Omaha Friday afternoon. The sudden
taking away or Mr. uentieman was a
shock to many of his relatives and
friends, sa some of them had not heard
of the shooting until after notice of his
