arrest him. Yesterday the sheriff drove
out near Bunn's home, and soon saw his
man driving along the road with his
wife and son. Sheriff fccott called to
him to surrendor, but his only roply was
a persistent effort to get his gun levelled
on the olllcor, who, from his buggy,
calmly watched the gun of Bunn as it
came on to a deadly aim, and then the
Bunn returned the fire, and then
dropping his gun grabbed his pistol, but

to-day ho said: "Tho Republicans of
Nebraska aro for McKinley for the next

tbo time. The strength of the Ohio man
in tho WeBt comes from tho fact that
the working people believe in blm.
They know that under the McKinley
law they wore getting more pay than
than they aro getting now. Business
was, generally speaking, better. They
are satisfied that McKinley had some?
thing to do with it, and they want to
vote for blm for President."
"Do you think that tbe Republicans
will be able to organlzo tho United
State Senate at the coming session?"
the Senator was asked.
'?Yob," ho replied. "I believe we will
be strong enough to assume control. I
have been In Washington for a week
and can say at the opening of the Sen?
ate the Republicans will start and re?
organize that body. I believe that all
of the Populist members will vote with
the Republicans this session."

what oan be learned here It would seem
that the situation in Anatoli appears to

The question now being disoussed be?
tween the porto and tbe representatives
of tbe powers Is that of adding four ex?
tra guardshlps to tho little foreign
fleets in the Bosphorus, Groat Britain,
Italy, Russia and Austria demanding
firmans to pass through tho Dardanelles
of an extra gunboat to bs attached to
their respective embassies. Although
the demands were made over a week
ago, on tho ground that tho foreign
population of Constantinople needed
tbis additional protection, the sultan
still holds out In his refusal to grant
tho requlrod permission.
From tho highest authority The As?
sociated Press is enabled to give the
viow of tho case taken by the Turkish
government. It is as follows: While
admitting that tho powora possess the
treaty right to have two guardshlps in.
the Bosphorus, tbo porte considers that
the proposed increase of tbe number of
foreign war vessels there, under the
present condition of things in the
Turkish empire, might excite tho Mus?
sulmans and produce an effect far from
the one desired by tbe powers. In ad?
dition, the porte points out, that in
view of the measures taken to preserve
order here an increase In tbe number of
guardshlps attached to tho ombrsalos IS
The absence of news from Zeitoun,
which the Armenians are still said to
be holding In strong force and the fail?
ure of tho government to iurnlsh any
information regarding tho concentra?
tion of Turkish troops at Marash for
the advance on Zeitoun, Is causing some
uneasiness. Besides, no news is ob?
tainable concerning the rising of the
Drusen against Turkish rule, one of the
most serious features of tho whole sit?
uation. Tho financial situation con?
tinues to hamper the government in
its efforts to restore order In Asiatic
Turkey and there does not seem to bo
any prospect of real relief in any direc?
