Contrary to expec tations rebuttal testimony was heard to day by the strike commission. The rail roads and labor unions introduced sever al witnesses, the first of whom was S. C. Wade, an employe of the legal department of the Rock Island. His opinion, was he said that much of the blockading of railroad tracks, was the work of experienced rail road men. W. R Mooney a Northern Pacific switchman of Blue Island, said Debs and Howard had not advised the men to strike, that they had told the men to use their own judgment. He said he was discharged for alleged activity ia the strike. The witness told of the fight at Blue Island on June 30, when 40O deputy mar shals stood by and saw their chief, Lo gau, beaten by the crowd, and related various incidents of car burning and blockading. He had been informed, he said, that a deputy marshal named Da-, vidson did not deny the story. W. F. Guion, a reporter was next called. He went over the incidents of the strike at Blue Islaud and Burnside, Fordham and Pullman. He saw the cars burning at Burnside. He found only three rail road men in the nearest crowd, which was three blocks away. The railroad men were trying to disperse the crowd. One of these men said the instructions from the A R. U. were to drive away all persons who might be inclined to damage property, and if they would not go to cause their arrest. Debs and Howard afterward asked the witness if he could help the order and cause the arrest of the men engaged iu violence, but he told them he was not a detective. TIIE PLAIN PROOF Of Awards to Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder at the Fairs. An envious New York competitor, who tries to sell inferior goods by labeling them "absolutely pure," seeks to belittle the award of highest honors to Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder at the World's Columbian Exposition by deny ing that such honors were conferred. The award to Dr. Price's is proved by the olliciai records. Chief of awards J. S. Browning writes: "The records of this department (agri culture) show that the executive commit tee on awards officially announced some time ago that an award had been grauted the Price Baking Powder company on its exhibit of baking powder." The Hon. John Boyd Thacher, chair man of the executive committee on awards, also writes under date of Feb. 14, 1894: "I herewith enclose you an official copy of your award, which in due time will be inscribed in the diploma and forwarded." W hy did the New York competitor not exhibit? Was it because his powder con tained ammonia? The award to Dr. Price's at Chicago was for strength, purity and general ex cellence. On similar grounds it received the highest award and Gold Medal at the California Midwinter Fair. CAUGHT A BURGLAR. Undersheriff "Wilkerson Has a Man Suppos ed to he Notorious "Nebraska Curly." '1 he sheriff believes he has caught a bad man iu the person of George Bennett who was arrested last evening for carry ing concealed weapons. He is thought to be the notorious burglar "Nebraska Curly who is wanted in several places but worst of all in Washington county. Sheriff J. B. Mitchell of that county was notified and will come and try to identi fy "Curly." The arrest was due to the accidental discharge of a revolver in a second-hand store on Kansas avenue below Lee Jone s. Curly went into the Btore and inquired how much he could get on the revolver. Nothing was said about it being loaded. The proprietor went on the as sumption that it wasn't, and when he was examining it snapped the trigger. The revolver went off and the bullet narrowly missed the proprietor's foot. It made him so mad he at once ordered Curly's arrest by an officer who was attracted by the report. When Under Sheriff Tom Wilkerson saw tho prisoner lie thought he answered a description of a criminal he had seen somewhere, and looking over the files of such notices in his office found one for "Nebraska Curly," ia which the culprit was described. "Sandy complexion, light mustache, scar on cheek, pock marked, talks brogue, slouch hat, light pants, 5 feet 6 inches high, about 26 years old." It answered the description exactly, and "Curly," or whoever he is, is being held at the county jaiL A Cook Book Free.

He Was So Whole-souhleil, She So Exclusive. NELLIE WAS FAST. The Cause of the Vanderbilt Troubles Notorious. She Has Figured in Many Escapades Before. New York, Aug. 30. A special dis patch from Newport, R I., to the Press says: The contemplated separation of Mr. and Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt, an nounced by cable does not strike society here with great surprise. Incompati bility of temperment alone is believed to be the cause. A society man who begged that hi3 name be withheld, said: "Mr. and Mrs. Vanderbilt are totally unfittted for each other and for several years they have led an unhappy exis- tence, disagreeing upon the most trivial ! matters. let .airs. Vanaeruilt is a clever, even brilliant woman and a person that is well liked by. many friends. Mr. Vanderbilt is a most agreeable man with whole-souled ideas, aad yet upon matters unimportant as well as important, they failed to agree." The speaker added that Mrs. Vander bilt was a strong minded southern woman with exclusive ideas. Mr. Vanderbilt was open and free, lie failed to agree i with Mrs. " anderbilt in the exclusive character of their house here aud es pecially with his wife's idea of surround ing it with high, almost impenetrable walls.

Mr. Ysenaga married the celebrated beauty, Mabel Wright. They took the Fall river boat for Newport this evening. NELLIE NEl'STETTEIt'S HISTORY. She Has Led Fast Life For Several Years. Sant Francisco. Aug. 30. Nellie Neus tetter, the young woman who is said to be the cause of the family troubles of Wrn. K. Vanderbilt, is well known here. She is a native of Eureka, Nev., was educated at Miles seminary, Alameda county, re sided for a number of years in San Fran cisco, and has frequently figured in es capades that have won her notoriety both iu the new and old world. She was born 23 or 30 years ago iu Eureka, where her father, Ben Cohen, kept a clothing store and became wealthy. She returned to Eureka from the seminary when she was 18 years old, aud was the belle of the town. Pret ty, witty, graceful and vivacious, she pos sessed all the requisites for the breaking of hearts. Her first victim was a nephew of a well known capitalist, and her liaisons with him created such a scandal that her parents sent her to the care of relatives iu San Francisco. Tiie change failed to make the desired reformation, and she soon became a marked figure on Kear ney and Market streets during the aft ernoon. Among her admirers was a wealthy Hebrew named Rothschild, who laid himself and his fortune at her feet. She utilized them both until she fell in love with a cigar drummer uamed Henry Neustetter. She married the latter in 1884, and all went well for a time. Her hus band's business compelled him to be ab sent most of the time, and during his trips from home Nellie led -a rapid life. She was the boon companion of all the fast young men about town and the end came in 187. She left her husband and went to New Y'ork with a noted Los Angeles woman named Laura Edelman. Xeustetter secured a divorce and Xettie continued to lead a gay life iu Xew York. She captured the heart of a millionaire manufacturer who gave her a sumptuous fiat, horses and carriages and all the money she could spend. He took her to Europe where she traveled like a princess. When she returned to New York she dazzled the people with the elegance of her Worth dresses and tho brilliancy of her jewels. In 180j she returned to San Francisco to visit her parents who had removed to this city from Eureka. She took rooms at a leading hotel, dressed better than any woman in town, wore thou sands of dollars worth of gems and spent money as freely as if she had an unlim ited letter on the United States mint Her money began to give out and she went back to New York for more, taking with her a pretty Oakland girl. The next that was heard of her was that she had gone to Europe again, and had been ejected from the Continental hotel in Paris. To her parents she wrote that she was studyiug tor the stage, and always carefully concealed from them the fact that she was leading a fast life. She wrote that she would return to San Francisco in October, but probably her encounter with Mr. Vanderbilt may in terfere with her plans. Art Hf tiool. Mr. G. M.

One of the Greatest in the City's Historv TO BEGIN SEPTEMBER 1 The Building Trades Will Make Their Protest Against Use of Convict Labor Material. New York, Aug. 30. It is probable that one of the greatest strikes this, city has ever witnessed will be inaugurated September 1, The building trades con ference appealed some time ago to the board of walking delegates to take some steps looking toward the abolition of the system adopted by a great many con tractors of employing materials produc ed by cheap or convict labor. The board investigated the complaint, and last March gave notice to the archi tects and builders and contractors that if the practice of employing the materials in question was continued after Septem ber 1 of this year, strikes would be au thorized on every building affected. Many contractors signified their inten tion of complying with the board's de mand, but the great majority failed even to reply to it, tiie board of walking dele gates again took the subject under ad visement and unanimously adopted the resolution to order strikes as indicated in the notice of last March. This reso lution will go into effect September 1. Accordingly, on and after that date any walking delegate is empowered to order a strike without any further formality on any building where the objectionable material is employed. President Bausch, of the Building Trades conference, aud who is also secretary of the board of walking dele gates told a reporter the practice of bringing in material from rural districts where labor is cheap has driven laborers away from the metropolis. "Workingmeu who are compelled to pay high rents hTe," he said, "cannot possibly hope to compete with suburban laborers, whose living expenses are im measurably cheaper. And as for com peting with convict labor, it ia entirely out of the question. Contractors, after all, gain but very little by employing material turned out by such labor, while to the New York workingmen the loss is great. "The board of walking delegates has concluded the only way to check the evil is by declaring a strike against every contractor who uses the obnoxious ma terial on any of his buildings."
