North Platte, Nebraska. It is said that Secretary Carlisle came very near being- run over last Sunday by a careless sleighing party in Washington. Many of our "free silver" brethern will wish that he had been run over a couple of -ears ago. Lnder the Nebraska law the county treasurer who does not make his annual settlement with J 1 1 i J a 4 t me state treasurer oy c eo y 1st is liable to a penalty of ten per cent of the amount due the state. This 3'ear there are five delinquents, viz; those of Butler, Dakota. Gage, Holt and Sheridan. It is doubtful if a fine is ever collected from them. The siren voice of Col. Bill Pax ton is luring the members of the legislative stock 3'ards committee. William's squealing over the en acLmenl of an equitable bill regu lating stock-yard charges should be unheeded. Least of all .should republican legislators yield to the charms of this giddjr old demo cratic leader who only hopes to get their party into a box. There is altogether too much time and at tention wasted at Lincoln by the legislature in listening to the specious pleas ot professional lob byists. Boss Croker looks like a saint when he sits beside him. Now will some body explain what the row is about? Who touched off the fireworks and what is tne explosion intenuea to commemorate? State Journal. LEGISLATIVE LACONICS. The senate has been doing busi ness with twentv-one employes in excess of the statutory limit, and as a compromise tne auauor ubt Fridav issued warrants in full of mi claims to that date. At the same time he informed the lieutenant governor that the whole list would be denied thereafter unless the par ing down process was inaugurated and the oav roll cut to the legal limit. A looomg-olt committee is l V9 getting in its deadly work and there will be grief when the employes file in to receive the sentence. In committee of the whole, senate file No 27 was considered. The bill amends the act relating to the sol dier's relief commission by provid ing that a widow of a soldier who having remarried, again becomes widow dependent upon charity, -t it t r i i , . suau receive uenents unaer tins act The only other change in the pre sent law is one providing for a fee of S3 per day and mileage for each commissioner, and providing for one physician on the board, the salary to be limited to five days in th..- vear. rue bill was recommended lo passage. The lower house of the state legislature has passed a bill do ugned to facilitate the conviction and punishment of hog and othe live stock thieves. This is a branch or inaustry mat nas iiounsnea m Nebraska of late years to an alarm ing degree and the legislature d e- well to do all in its power to aid suppressing it. The state senate has decided to pass a bin reducing the interest on state warrants to five per cent from seven per cent. In times past there have been occasions when the warrants of the state have been at Clarence, L T.. Feb. 7. Jim French has mot his fate. Last night French and Slaughter Kid undertook store of W. E.

The bandits were recogn.zs- as they rode into town iney dismounted before the store of Patton, wneu a Texas cowboy from with in opeued fire on them, instantly killing blangiiter Kid with his secoud shot. He fired a th.rd shot at Jim French, but missed. Having no more cartidces. he secreted his revolver. French entered the store aud accused the cowbov of killing his partner in crime, but the cowboy protested that ho had no gnu hence he was not the one, whereupon I reuch turned and shot Manager Irvin, chief clerk of the store, through the body. Irv-n drew a revolver and re turned the lire, shooting French through the boiy and through the right eye. Drench mauaged to reach Ins horse and, mounting, rode to a house a short dis tance away.

The French steamer La Gascogue, from Havre, has not yet been sighted. It is now the gen eral lelief a uoiig steamship psople that some part of her machinery has broken down and that having made temporary rep nrs she is procae ling slowly toward port. Having only two masts she could not sproa I any gre.it nu intity of canvas, consequently liar spaad would not b9 greatly increased if sail had been hoisted to assist her progress. Should her ma chinery bo so disabled as to be complete ly useless for the tima baing she would be obliged to use her sails and in the teath of the mrthwjst wind? tha1; have prevailed for some days past she could make little, if any, ha.idw ly. The White Star liner Teutonic, from. Liverpaol and Qneenstown, was due to arrive at iitio yesterday niDrninsr to equal her record, but has not been rc Ceart and Explain. CHICAGO, Feb. 7. Judge Grosscup appearen determined today to find out whetheGeorge M. Pullman evaded the service1 et. the -subpoena issued for him by the .defense in the Dob3 conspiracy case. ,AKtne opening of tho court Will iam B. Johnson, the colored doorkeeper of. Mr. Pnllman's private office, was called bafore the judgo and said that he saw Mr. Pnllinan enter his office on Mon day morning at 10:30, an hour after Deputy Jones ' called. The doorkeeper asked for his namo and business. Jones wrote his nSsriQ and official title on a card, which Johnson said he gave to C. S. Sweet, Mr. Pullman's private sec retary. The secretary entered the inner office, and returning said Mr. Pullman was not in. Johnson said he did not see Mr. Pnllman come out of his office, nor did he know if Pullman was there at the time the card was sout in. Judge Grosscup asked for Mr. Sweet, and was informed by the counsel for the defense that Sweet had disappeared also. "Never inind, then," said the judge. "We will.postpone tho iuquirv until Mr. sweet is found and brought before the court." After the Pullman matter had been continued Jennie Curtis, an ex-Pullman employe, took the stand and told of the poverty of many of the Pullman com pany's employes previous to the strike. Debs w&3 then called for cross-examina- bitration of the president of the United States and stated at length the exact measures to be determined by the arbitrator. The substance of the president's de cision is contained in the following par agraph: "That the boundary line be tween the Argentine Republic and tho United States of Brazil in that part sub mitted to me for arbitration and de cision, is constituted aud shall be es tablished by and upon the rivers Pepiri (also called Pepiri-Guazu) aud S.ia Au- tontio, to wit: The rivers which Brazil had designated in the argument and documents submitted to me as consti tuting the boundary, and herein before denominated the wosterly system." The territory involved covers an area of 31,000 square miles and has a popula tion of about 7,000 inhabitants. The situation of the disputed territory is of no little interest, not only from a politi- ; cal.'but from a military standpoint. Its loss to Brazil would almost have cut off the rich and populous Brazilian state of i Rio Grande do Sul from the remainder of the republic, leaving only a narrow tongue of laud something loss than 50 leagues wide as a means of connection. Thus the territory of Missiones, if held by a foreign power, would be a contin ual menace to the peace and progre.53 of Rio Grande do Sul. I THE t Star Clothing House ported at 10:30 o'closk today.

The democrats used to - say that the establishment of tin plate works in our country were a foolish undertaking, that they could exist only through a high protective duty and would double the price of tin in this country. Through the Wil son tariff they hoped to ruin our American tin works, and restore the tin works of Wales, and onr de pendence on importations from that county. And in England they had the same hopes. But the results has disappointed bur democratic patriots as well as their patriotic English friends. Our tin works have in the short time of their exis tence gained such strength, that they can stand the competition of the Wales works, all the Wilson tariff not withstanding. Our Con- a discount, even with them bearing seven per cent. Whether or not they can always be disposed of at par appears to be a question de pending more or less upon tempor ary conditions. At the present time they are bringing two percent premium on all sums exceeding forty dollars. The bill regulating stock yards charges came np in the house Tues day. There was a good attendance of Omaha men interested in the bill. There were minority and majority reports and after a spirited contest the former was adopted and the bill went to the general file. This is considered a defeat of the stock -ards people and in favor of the shippers. The university appropriation bil it 1 t r was men taKen up. mere was much opposition to the proposed levj-, the proceeds of which would go toward furnishing new build ings for the crowds of students. The house was ratlr.er evenlv balanced, and for a time it looked as if the university might come out short of needed improvements, but the bill was finally recommended to pass. fri. - j . j.ue senate recommence passing a bill prohibiting the coloring nf a ci eomargarine to look like butter. The Omaha packers offered some eeble objections, but to no purpose. The senate took another turn at employes and decided to retain the ninety and nine and secure pay ment for them despite the auditor's declaration that he would not pay more than the law allows. in now 33 honr. behind her record.
