The trial of ex-state Treasurer Hartley lor the embezzelement of public funds was concluded at Omaha Tuesday evening and the mrv the next forenoon returned a verdict finding the defendant guilty. as charged in the third count of the information, of converting the money of the state to his own use as an individual while holding the office of state treasurer, the amount of the embezzlement being fixed at S151.S84.45. Bartley's dishonestv in office was continued in his at tempt to buy the jury empanneled to try him, and by the means ot his stolen funds he was enabled to employ the ablest counsel Judge Baker, a republican, before whom the case was heard, was fair, firm and oromotlv ruled out the irrelevant testimony introduced by the defense for the purpose of be wildennsr tue lurv. .Having vio- lated the law and betrayed the con fidence of his friends, Bartlev has met his just deserts. uur crime ot i was not a cir cumstance compared with the "crime" which has just been com mitted against the dollar of the Peruvian daddies. Our crime of '73 consisted in the nominal suspen sion of coinage of a dollar which had not in reality been coined for years, while the Peruvian 'crime which has just been committed pro vides that not only shall the coin age of Peruvian soles be suspended. but that the coins, when brought into the country, shall be melted and returned to their owners in bars. This is the result of Peru's long experience with the free coin age of silver. It has not only made gold the standard, but proposes to melt down the coins brought into the county and pass them back to their owners in the form of bul lion. The Omaha World-Herald, the personal organ of W. J. Bryan, feels constrained to admit that times are improving and prosperity return ing, and in a recent issue said "Things that were as if dead have sprung into life. Business that was declining has begun to experi ence a revival, nouses mat were empty have been filled. Buildings that were delapidated have been put in repair, streets tuat were quiet have become filled with life. Trade that was dull has been aroused to activity. Citizens who were depressed have become hope ful. The future that was gloomy has become bright.' i he American people oy no means realize what the Cuban war TT mm costs this country in actual cash. In 1894 we imported from Cuba in American ships, be it remembered, So.68,671 worth of goods. This year we shall only get from the island $10,000,000, worth, all told. In 1894 we shipped to Cuba $20,125,- 321 of our products, largely meat and flour, articles the sale ot which means prosperity to our farmers. Now we export only $7,000,000. x nirreen minion dollars a year is what the Cuban war costs the American farmer. The state will undoubtedly lose the money deposited in the defunct Merchant's bank at Lincoln, says the Kearney Hub. This bank, which was run by State Treasurer Meserve's political associates, was bolstered up by state money, in ex cess ot the sum to which it was en titled under the depository law. Now the president of the bank is endeavoring to escape personal re sponsibility by claiming that his signature attached to the deposi tory bond is a forgery. The new administration is making a good start. General weyler has several times reported diirerent provinces as "pacihed. JBut lie no sooner reports than he sends out his bri gades to "pacify" them over again and see to it that they are all starv ing according to the General's order.

The recent "silver republican" conference is said to have had for its real obiect a plan to unload Mr. Bryan as the leader of the silver cause. Mr. Bryan has too many "isms" and is too erratic to suit the men who are puttinff up the money m behalf of the silver cause They also evidentlv have nn evp on Tnm ts?n'.s roovement to alienate the airections ot some who rallied to his standard last year.

ON Victoria Receives Enthusiastic Greeting JFroin Loyal Britishers Jfo Sarlons Ac cidents Occurred, Although a Number ot Women i"ainrc3. London, June 22. Probably 5,000,000 people saw the great pageant celebrat ing Queen Victoria's jubilee. In all history no such vast mass of humanity gathered to witness a similar spectacle. The procession was practically in three sections as far as St. Paul's, though the two last, en route to the cathedral, were consolidated as they moved into Piccadilly. The first to take up position was tho colonial procession, formed on the embankment, and moved via tho mall, thence past the palace, where her majesty viewed it from a window over the route to St. Paul's. Tho march began at 8:45 and then the great cortege proved a welcome re lief to the waiting multitude. Tho pro cession was headed by an advauco party of the Royal Horso Guards. Then fol lowed the band of tho same corps, play ing the inspiring "Washington Post March." Close upon the band came a portion of the picturesque northwest mounted police, as escort to tho first colonial premier, tho Hon. Wilfred Laurier. The northwest police, men to whom evidently a saddle has never been a novelty, made a striking appearance, quite as brave and serviceable looking as the New South Wales mounted rifles, with their grey sombreros and black cockplumes.who succeeded them, escort ing the premier of New South Walesr tlio Hon. S. B. Keid. The Coluniul Procession. The Victorian mounted troops fol lowed. Then came New Zealand's pre mier, the Hon. Richard J. Seddon. For the moment Australia gave way. Afri ca was allowed a chance, and the Cape of Good Hope mounted rifles, wearing the scarlet, with white hemlets, rode by to herald the coming of the Capo pre mier, the Hon. Sir J. Gordon Sprigg. Hardly had he been noticed when atten tion was claimed for the yellowish- brown kbarkee, lit with bright scarlet, which proclaimed the South Australian mounted troops. Lean, long, spare men of wiry manhood, they won applause like the rest, and passed on to give place to the premier of New Fouudland, Hon. Sir W. V. Whiteway. From Nw Foundland one was transported to Na tal by tho Natal mounted troops, Hon. Sir H N. Nelson, rode after them, tho official personification of western Aus tralia. The premiers being disposed of, then succeeded a really most attractive dis play, mounted troops of the crown col-, onies, tho Rhodesiau horse, the Colonial infantry, broken by three lands, those of St. George's, the London Scottish and tho London Irish rifle volunteer corps and others. Then there passed the splendid contingent from Canada's infantry, 175 strong, Colonel Alymer leading. Much applause was destowed on the fine marching of these men. Fol lowing came the real oddities in the eyes of Londoners, of which the Zaptiehs from Cyprus divided the honors with the Dyaks of Borneo. These and others coming after emphasized and repeated the fact, how widely scattered are the races the queen rules. The Trinidad field artillery, the Sierra Leone militia, with their strange small blue turbans and depending tassels and knicker bockers; the British Guiana police, with their white curtained caps. Tho Royal Niger Hansseas, in uniforms of khar kill cloth, trousers exposing the leg and shaved heads, were all blacks. The Hansseas, the blackest of the blacks, wearing "tne burnished livery of the sun, ''were most enthusiastically greeted. The Military Procession. The second procession passed the palace 50 minutes after the colonials had climbed Constitutiou hill. It more than eloquently filled into the picture of Britain's war strength; more than magnificently completed the caraval of gorgeous costume of color. But tho scores ot troops and companies were literally too numerous to mention ex cept as a brilliant whole. It seemed like nothing so much as some stream of burnished gold flowing between dark banks of human beings, gathered to witness its passage to a land of light. Tho empire has passed in review and the head of it all was now to come, her majesty. The royal procession proper was interwoven with the crowd of wait ing dignitaries of all sorts. First came tho aides-de-camp to the queen, these being headed by tho Prince of Wales. Then followed alone the lord lieutenant of London, the Dnke of Westminster. Following tho princess came the guard of honor 22 officers of native Indian cavalry corps. But for these the crowd had few eyes. They could see the queen's horses it was the queen at last. A cheer broke forth that seemed to shake the ground again and again as her majesty's carriage approached. On the arrival of the queen the lord mayor uncovered. Approaching tho carriage of her majesty his lordship, with all due obeisauce, presented the hilt of tho pearl sword, which was un drawn. This was tho ceremony of du tiful submission. The queen quietly touched it, thus returning it to the lord mayor in token that his submission was graciously accepted by his sovereign. The great bells of St. Paul's broke out in a happy chorus as the queen's car riage started from Temple bar, and only ceased as her majesty's carriage stopped in front of the steps of the city cathe dral. The whole affair passed off without a hitch. There was no serious accidents. altnough a number of women fainted and a man fell out of a tree on the Mall. The queen witnessed this and promptly sent one of her cqueries to inquire as to tue man's condition. The Canadian premier, Mr. Wilfred Laurier, was warmly received luroughout tho proces sion.

FOUR INSTANTLY KILLED. twenty-Six Inmates Caught Jn the Wreck of a Stock Barn at Lincoln, Ills. LiKCOiiN.Bls., June 20. At i?:45p. m. a tornado was seen approaching from tho southwest. The state institution for the feeble minded, containing over 700 inmates, seemed to be directly in the path of the storm and stringent meas ures were quickly taken to prevent a panic. The roofs of several buildings were carried away and much damage WU3 done about tho grounds, but tho 700 inmates were under perfect control of the attendants and the threatened panio and great loss of life was averted. The tornado passed on to the northeast, touching next on the farm and stock barn connected with the asylum, three milea distant. In the cow barn were huddled 26 persons, including the super intendent of the farm, Jacob Wilmot, 24 pupils and an attendant. Tho barn was wrenched from its foundation and torn to pieces. Four of the pupils were mstantlj killed The others, with the i 3 exception of the superintendent, es caped serious injury and were shortly rescued from the debris. The dead are: James O'Briex, Sylvester baker, Neal MoKexzie. Castle LeBarox. Tho injured: Jacob Wilmot, farm su perintendent, will probably die; Lemuel Gleason, attendant, serious internal in jury, may die; William Misncr, pupil, severely cut, will probably recover, The tornado passed on to the north east, doing great damage, the extent of which is not known. The storm di vided into sections and covered a wide territory. It is feared that the loss of life will be greatly enlarged when re ports are received from outside the city. Last ol tho Sugar Witnesses Acquitted. Washington, June 23. Judge Brad ley today sustained the motion of the defense in the case of John W.

" 1 UNIFIED FOE SILYEE. FRED WHITE TO LEAD THE FUSION FORCES I.N IOWA. General Weaver: ..Faction Remained With. tho Dcmocruts-i-TIclcct Agreed Upon Is Composed of Two Democrats, Two Silver Republicans and One Populist. Governor P. E. WHITE Lieutenant Governor. B. A. PLUMMES Judge of Supreme Court. L. G. KINNE Railroad Commissioner. S.B. GRAIN Supt. of Instruction.. G.F. RHINEHART Des .Moines, Juno 24. The Demo cratic state convention adjourned early Wednesday ovening, having completed its work. The two allied conventions, the Silver Republicans and Populist conventions, completed their work slightly in advance. The three factions were, after much controversy, able to agree on one platform, with freo silver as the main idea, and one ticket, com- i m . , , posed or two uemocrats, two onver Republicans and one Populist. The ticket will be placed on the official bal lot under the name "Democrat." When this became known there was a split in the Populist convention, the middle-of-the-road faction, under the leadership of A. W. O. Weeks, walking out. Tho seceders numbered probably 30 of the delegates. General J. B. Weavor's faction remained with tho Democrats, whereupon he was bitterly denounced. But for this rupture the union of all the freo silver forces would have been com plete. White For Govern. The ticket is composed as follows: Governor, F. E. White, Democrat, Keokuk; lieutenant governor, B. A. Plummer, Silver Republican, Winne bago county; for. judge of tho supreme court, L. G. Kinne, Democrat, Polk county; railroad commissioner, S. B. Grain, Populist, Dallas county; superin tendent of instruction, O. F. Rhinehart, Silver Republican, Jasper county. Mr. White, tho candidate for gov ernor, was formerly a member of con gress from the Sixth district. He was defeated for re-election last year by John E. Lacey. He is an out and out free silver man and has an established reputation as a good campaigner. Mr. White's main competitor for the nomination for governor was J. R. Bur gess of Ottumwa, a Cleveland post master who supported Bryan. His can didacy was pushed by tho young men. Half a dozen candidates were placed in nomination, but ex-Governor Boies name was hardly mentioned in the convention. Mr. Plummer and Mr. Rhinehart aro little known in state politics. Mr. Grain was many years ago the Populist candidate for governor. Judge Kinne is chief justice of tho supreme court now. io supported sryau last year, but under some protests. He is a prom uent Democrat. The sentiment of tho convention was almost overwhelmingly for Bryan. Every reference to his name was greeted with lusty cheering. His picturo was repeatedly displayed and every time an orator pointed toward it there was ap plause. There was no quarter given to the gold Democrats. The silver ele ment of the party had its own way in all the proceedings. In point of num bers it was ono ' of tho largest Demo cratic conventions ever held in this city, and in point of enthusiasm it will com pare favorably with any of them. WIPING OUT THE HOPPERS. Professor I.ussrer Investigates the Situa tion In South Dakota. Aberdeen, June 18. Professor Lug ger, state entomologist of Minnesota, has been investigating the grasshopper situation in South Dakota, and decides they are the kind which once did such great damage. He state3 that the swarm, whose eggs aro now hatching in this section of the state, is tho one that left the northeastern corner of Ne braska on Aug. 5, J 895. They arrived in time to lay their eggs, and it is a strange fact that in almost every in stance they were laid in fields which had been hailed out during the sum mer. Professor ' Lugger states that if the farmers will get right after the pests and use hopperdozers freely there is little danger of their migrating into other states. Tho hopperdozer is, how ever, only a makeshift to preserve the growing grain. In order to eradicate the pest tho plow innst be used. It is estimated that 7,000 eggs will be laid on a square foot of ground. Iu order to de stroy these eggs deep plowing must bo resorted to by all farmers whoso lauds are infested. If only a part of the land is plowed the farmer who does not plow is guilty of allowing the pest to spread and do incalculable damage an other year. Circulars are being sent out to farmers generally by Professor Lug ger, and it is contemplated that the grasshopper scare will be of brief dura tion in South Dakota. Captain lloycott Deail. London, Juno 22. Captain Boycott is dead. He was about 65 j'ears of age and became familiar through being the nrst man suDjectcu to tue "uoycott" in Ireland. He was a laud agent in 1881 in tho Connemara section of County Mayo, where he collected rents. The captain made a speech in tho course of which he urged the people of Ireland to abstain from agrariau crimes and to adopt instead a policy of sending harsh landlords, agents and bailiffs "to Coven try" the old term for boycotting. Events so shaped themselves that Cap tain Boycott was the first man the Irish experimented ou in this connection and hence the familiar word of boycott. Km! or War In l'hilllppinco.

McCreary of the Nebraska Republican league has issued his formal call for the convention to be held in Omaha on Tuesday, June U'J. BARTLEY IS FOUND GUILTY. ury Finds That Ex-Stato Treasurer Em bezzled Public Funds. Omaha, Juno 2?;. The Bartley jury teached a verdict at 10:05 a. m., after being out since 5:30 p. m. yesterday. The verdict found tho defendant guilty, as charged, in tho third count of the in formation, of converting tho money of the state to his own usoas an individual whilo holding the office of state treas urer, the amount of tho embezzlement being fixed at 151,SS4.45. Tho defendant has three days within which to file a motion for a new trial, and the hearing on this motion will un doubtedly bo had before court adjourns for tho term. In case the motion is over ruled sentence will be passed, and will unquestionably bo followed by an ap peal to tho supreme court, with a re quest that the defendant be released on bond pending the decision of the su preme court. It was learned that on the first ballot after the jury retired last night the jury stood nine to three, the three being for acquittal. The last ballot this morn ing, before a verdict was reached, stood eleven to one, the man who held out be ing Christ Steiger, who is reported to have said he would stand out for acquit tal until hades froze over. The amount of money which Bartley is convicted of embezzling was probably reached by giving Bartley credit for tho 50,000 which ho claimed to have checked into the general fund from his private account in the Omaha National bank. The amount of money ho was accused of embezzling was 201, 834.05 and it appears that a slight error was made in the computation, making the figures in the "cmts" column "45" in stead of "05." "When the jury retired Judge Baker instructed the bailiffs having charge of the jury that he would not inn any more risk of tho jury being tampered with, as was done in tho Bolln case, and he ordered the bailiffs to not allow any member of tho jury to leave tho room for any purpose except to pass to the court room with a verdict or for further instructions. In accordance with this order the jurors were not al lowed to go to the hotel for breakfast, their meals being brought to them, and they were kept in tho jury room, re moved from any outside communica tion and under strict watch by two bailiffs.
