Wholesale Dicherge of Employes Will
Omaiia, Neb., Aug. 21. Nebraska ra'ti
rondi are being reduced iu forces. This
is partly due to the drouth though it has
been goiug on on some lines for some time.
A Burlington official today, in speaking
about the wholesale discharge of em
ployes now going on, said: '-I believe it
wouid be a conservative estimate to say
that 1 200 men on the Burlington system
have been discharged siuca June 1. Dur

were dismissed fiom the service, through
no fault of their ovn, but because busi
ness would not warrant their further con

being reduced, section crews being cut

PROM DYNAMITE TO TORPEDO.
Washington, Aug. 2L The construc
tion bureau of the navy has prepared
plans for the transformation of tbo dyim
mite cruiser Vesuvius into a torpedo
cruiser, aud the result of the change will
be to niaku the Vesuvius a very prettv aud
comfortable little craft. By the removal
cf the cumbersome dynamite guns the
constructors will ba able to use the 100
tons of available displacement for the nc
commodxtiou of a superstructure running
half the length of the vessel forward. Thlt
will afford comfortable quarters for the
crew and will make the vessel a much
better sea boat in rough water. Five

CEVKLASD. O , Auc. 21 A lively de

followed the launchiug of two motions bj
M. A. CrostoWibi of Cleveland, who re
marked that be thought it would be weli
to announce a platform, aud ruaved that
the delegates renounce their allegiance to
the pope of Rome forever. He also moved
that tuey recognize ofticmlly Archbishop
Vilattc as the head of this new church,
llev. Mr. Kolaszewski oDnosed the first
motion, saying its passage would result in
criticism and injury to the society.
Several warm speeches were made ou
both hides. The motion was lost. The
second motion carried. A resolution was
passed establishing the name American
Catholic church for the society. The
names of Polish National church aud
Polish Independent church were sug

"WANTED THEaTY THOUSAND.
St. Louis Has a Big Sensation, in High
St. Louis, Aug. 21. A warrant issued
Late this afternoon for the arrest of Philip
Itohan, a wealthy boilermaker here, and
his son, on tin charges of attempted" ab
duction and highway robbery, is likely to
develoce a sens itiou. James Campbell, a
broker, who secured the issuance of the
warrant, alleges Rohtn met him last Fri
day, demanded $30,CW0 aud then at the
point of a revolver, forced Campbell to
enter a carriage m which was Rohan's
son. The carriage was driven to
Itohau'a rooms. Campbell alleges that
Rohan then ordered Campbell to go up to
the room. Campbell refused, and then
said he woulu go up if Rohan would hand
over tlie revolver to his toil. Rohan did
so and Campbell leaped out of the car
riage, .'-lammed the dcor ;ud ran to his
office. Several stories are afloat as to the
cause of Rohan's alleged action. One is
that the boilermaker, who hypothecated
$30,00J worth of bonds with Campbell
through a friend to secure a loan, took
this method of securing their seturu
after ether means had failed. Another
aud more probable story is that Robin
secured the" contract for placing 30,000
worth of boilers iu tae power house ot the
3Iunic!pal Electric Ligiit comp tny. It is
said that Campbell, who became interested
m the company, fouud some fault with the
work, declaring tha boilers defective and
refusted to pay over the money to Rohan.
Immediately after securing the warruut,
Campbell left for New York, accompanied
by his wife.
EIGHT ABE DROWNED.
Yacht is Capsized in a Big:
St. John, N. B., Aug. 21. Today's yacht
race for the corporation cup resulted in
putting mourning iuto at least eight
families. The live yachts started out with
a good stiff breeze. Nothing of im
portance happened until the yachts h.td
rounded the last buoy aud were homeward
bound, when all were becalmed. To the
westward plain judications of a storm
could be seen.
Iu a short time the storm came up, rain
and a high wind, followed in n few min
utes by a hail storm. The yachts had
their sails all set when tiie stoun
struck them. Iu a short time the
yachts were all out of sight,
with the btorm raging furiously. The
Maple Leaf was some little distance off
from the others and was the first to receive
the benefit of the squall. The crew made
an effort to tack but before they could ac
complish this work, the top mast was
carried away. The Primrose was well in
shore when it struck and she lasted but a
few minutes. She was thrown on her
beam's end and in an instant she plunged
bow first to the bottom.
As the storm subsided the people on the
tug boat Lillie discovered the yacht was
missing and immediately got up steam to
seaich for the missing yacht. After going
about a quarter of a mile four men in cloo
proximity were found swimming about in
the still heavy running sea.
The following are those drowned:

the celebrated Pari- crew, which won

She threw herself on a chair, let fall

that at hi? home in Germanv it was the

Tho crime with which the men are
charged was one of the most cold-bloodnd
crimes ever committed in Kansas. In 1S30

ners m an extensive cattle business in
Chautauqua. They imported 1,400 head of
TexH-steers, to which neighboring raisers
objected feariug they would spread Texas
fever. Gibson aud Frazer refused to re

quence were threatened with death. They
paid no heed to tbe threats, but in May, of

Iu Juue Frazer was misled and after a
long search his body, covered with knife

ABOUT WOMEN AND THINGS.
Vitality, JfoveUy, Diplomacy, Femininity
Net? York. .w .. - Tho wonderful vi
tality some -tf omen aro blessed with! They
seem to have nine lives, just like the vel
vet pawed, graceful cat, who can neverthe
less scratch on occasion, and to whom, by
tho way, they aro so often likened. Take
Clara Morris, for instance. She has just
returned from the road after a season of
exhausting business and $12,000 profits,
and she is -w?ry well indeed. This same
woman, a man who knows everything was
telling mo tho other day, has been the de
spair of managers, as they feared to make
contracts with her, owing to her fragile
health. For 23 years i-ho has had tho rep
utation of being a nervous wreck, a con
sumptive, etc., and her obituary has been
on filo in newspaper oflices iu readiness
for typo a score of times. Still now she
seems to have entered upon a second youth,
is planning for next season and, according
to report, is remarkably strong and healthy

I had occasion to go to a pohco station
recently to endeavor to recover sonic jew-
dry stolen beyond doubt by a sentimental
eyed charwoman who had seen better davs,
and who hud amused mo by quoting from
-Macbeth" while sho brandished her
scrubblngbrushon high. "You see, said
I to the man at tho desk, "the woman told
mo such a heartrending tale of hcr lest
, fortuncs and seemed so much above her
tho way with women. Oh, my, but they
play on your heartstrings! And tho worse
they aro tho harder they piny. I never ar
rested a woman yet without hearing a
story from her lips that would havo touched
a heart of steel, nnd I never landed one of
them at this hero dosk without feeling my
self a cursed brute and the law a holy hor
ror. There never was ouo arrested yet who
wasn't a lady, who wasn't innocent, or If
guilty who didn't blamo all hcr degrada
tion on some manor other at some t lino in
her life. I'd rather struggla with 20 plun-
dering Gollaths and get them hero with

Tho flower markets in big towns aro
ways one of tho spriug novelties. Socl
women get up at dawn and stand in
freshness of the day bargaining for pota
panslcs and bachelor buttons. Thero
something so revivifying about it all so
tempting, so joyous! After tho flower
markets open the spring fever for green
lanes quickly follows, and a quick exodus
to the country is tho result.
Women aro at present divided into two
