FRANK H. COONEY. Administrator of the Estate of John P. Byrne, deceased. Dated at Butte City, this 30th day of De cember, 1898. BE A MODEL POLICE FORCE City of Havana Will Soon Be Well Patrolled. PERFECT ORGANIZATION About One Thousand Men Will Needed and Mr. McCullagh is Selecting Them Now. be New York, Jan. 2.—A dispatch to the World fnom Havana says - Good pro gress has been made in the creation of a Havana police force. Already several inspectors have been appointed and more than enough applications are on file to fill the subordinate positions and the ranks. Chief of Police Col. Moulton brings to his hard task wide business ex perience and great energy. He has rec ommended drastic changes in the lower courts to help the speedy punishment of crime. Havana's policing is to be modern. Each of the twelve precinct stations will be connected with the central office by telephone " and New York "hurry-up" wagons will startle pedestrians. Up-to date "nippers" will displace the tightly drawn rope which now brings prisoners' elbows painfully together behind the back. No more bleeding men will be marched as a butt of abuse through the narrow streets nor will women offenders be bound and hustled as animals. Who each criminal is, where he goes and what he does will be recorded. Now either nothing is hoard of a man after he com mits a crime, or he resumes his former habits in his former home with abso lutely no espionage. Eighteen hundred applications for po liice positions have appeared. Of these about 1,000 will bo accepted. Inspector McCullagh thinks he can pick enough good men to make an effective force from the start. There will be 720 policemen, of whom 100 will be mounted. Another hun dred will be used in special details at public meetings, the ferry, railroad® and j all public gatherings. The remainder will be officers. There will be a chief, Col. Moulton, one deputy chief, eight inspec tors, twelve captains and 33 lieutenants. Inspector McCullagh lias created the lat ter rank here because the rank "ser geant" as used in the United States really means lieutenant and is officially recognized as being the equivalent of that grade in the United States army. There will be 43 sergeants as well with a lower order of duties and then the patrol men. The term "roundsman" Mr. McCul lagh considers obsolete and he has drop ped it, assigning those duties to his ser geants. Few American applications have appeared, one of the requirement's is that future Havana policemen must be able to speak Spanish. By President's Mc Kinley's express desire no account Is tak en of the nationality of aniy applicant. Cubans and Spaniards are treated with absolute impartiality. Col. Moulton has recommended to Gen. Ludlow that exper'as be asked to report upon changes in the methods of proce dure in the lower courts and in the penal code. Under Spanish law, an accused person, after being examined in the lower courts could be kept in prison for three years awaiting trial in the middle ones. The power thus to delay trial has been often used by corrupt Spanish authori ties to mulct the prisoner and his friends if they have money. Even for minor of fenses the prisoner may be kept 72 hours before his case is called. Inspector Mc Cu'llagh says: "They keep a man in jail and then spend three days finding out who he is. If ho is anybody that's enough to see what his family and friends will do for him." The veteran also says: "Talk about your soldier policemen, with rifles, just give me the policeman's club with goi it and I'll guarantee to keep Havana the most peaceable city in the world. Its people are mild and easily handled.' ' Col. Moulton's fnture policy as to the suppression of public immorality, the curse of Cuba, will lie as General Ludlow may direct. Probably few changes will be made at present although the immoral theatres may be warned to remove cer tain features. Col. Moulton says: "I shall try to avoid either extreme and to use plain common sense in dealing with delicate questions and customs of three centuries growth." , j ; New York j 1 courts behind | ! : [ I I THE POPULISTS ARE IN BAD FIX Topeka. Kan., Jan. 2.—The populist leaders of Kansas arc confronted by a serious problem. Both branches of the legislature have passed a. railroad bill which railroad attorneys declare is not worth the paper it is written on. It was announced today that Gov. Leody had signed the bill, but it turns out that he wont to his home at Lawrence without doing so ar.d that his failure to approve it is prompted with a desire to confer with the steering committee with a view to changes in the bill and its re-enact ment under n suspension of the rulc3. The constitution gives the governor pow er to assemble the legislature in extraor dinary session when a grave emergency demands it. "The emergency" set forth in Gov. Leedy's call was the necessity of railroad legislation. Now the legislature has passed a bill which does not meeet this "emergency" until the first Monday in April next and one month after a rog ulad session of the legislature shall have adjourned. The railroads intpnd to go into the courts and fight the new law on this ground and have announced that they will carry the matter to the supreme court of the United States. They will contend that no emergency exists and that if it did exist the new law should The foods we eat furnish energy for the body just as burning coal makes steam for an engine. The experiments of Prof. Frankland, Ph. D., of Lon don, shows that cod-liver oil yields two and one-half times more energy than starches or sweets. Scott's Emulsion is pure cod-liver oil combined with hypophosphites of lime and soda. It forms fat, gives strength, enriches the blood, invigorates the nerves, and repairs tissues. 50c. and $1.00, all druggists, scon* & BOWNE, Chemists, New York. have been made operative at once. The railroads will also contend on the grounds that the title is not broad enough to cover Its purposes. FAMILY WIPED OUT BY FATALITIES I I !

He died suddenly and no examination was made of his body. Lloyd Emerson, a son, Webster City, Iowa, Jan. 2.—The mys terious disappearance of Mrs. Priscilla Em erson. aged 60, widow of the late Levi Em erson, a banker of Stratford, has been solved by finding her body frozen stiff in Her home. She had been dead, it was learned, since a few days before Christmas. An autopsy will be held today to determine the cause of her death. Thursday night before Christmas a nephew from Dayton took Mrs. Emerson two barrels of apples as a Christmas gift. He was at the house last night and said everything about the place is just as he left it when he returned home. Sums of money were known to have been kept in the house, but how much it was has not been ascertained. It is not believed that the house has been robbed. doing a banking business at Rising City. Neb., went to Colorado Springs for his health, and while taking a bath he burst a blood vessel and death ensued. May Em erson, the only daughter, while handling a razor accidentally cut herself.

Craig Patterson ,of the Chian King mission, appeals to American friends for aid. A panic prevails throughout Zse Chuen province caused by the rehoisting of the black flag of rebellion by the notorious out law Yumantze. After offering to refrain from further depredations and receiving a compensation from the Chinese authorities, Yumantze has resumed his followers and started a fresh anti-Catholic crusade. His reward included 100,009 taels in silver, im munity from punishment and a captaincy in the Chinese army. The French mission _ __________ . _ Floury, remains in^Yymantze's hands ary, and hopes of saving him have been aban doned.

TRAIN MAKES GREAT TIME One of the Best Records Made in the West FROM OMAHA TO CHICAGO The Time Has Been Greatly Reduced —Therels a Very Large Mail Contract in View. Chicago, Jan. 2.—The new fast mail train on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy road, which pulled out of Omaha at 3:45 o'clock yesterday afternoon, rolled Into the Union depot in Chicago at 2:14 this morning, 10 hours and 29 minutes from Omaha, a dis tance of 502 miles. The train was in charge of Conductor Frank Columbine and En gineer Frank Bullard, who holds the record for the fast run on the road, was at the throttle of Engine 590, called "the grey hound of the Burlington." The cars were mail cars Nos. 914 and 915, and storage car No. 931. The new train is designed to be one of the links in the Oriental mail ser vice, which is to cut down the time of cross ing the continent 13 hours. The mall was rushed eastward at once. The new fast schedule of the trans-continental mall really began at Cheyenne. Wyo, when the mail was detached from the regular over land limited and sent ahead. A gain of one hour and a half was made between Green river and Council Bluffs. The spurt made was the fastest railroading ever done in the west. The train was in charge of En gineer Mathis, and he insisted that the time could be cut down materially. One of the brakemen of the new train declared times he feared they would leave the track end go into the ditch. If the Burlington succeeds in keeping down the schedule it will be a great factor in its favor in the strong competition with the Rock Island ani , Northwestern railroads for the great mall CO ntract. This competition begins on | j anuary 8 . The amount lnvo i V ed in the t 0 ( a [ contract, from ocean to ocean, is $750, qqq The schedule instituted last night beats the former fast mail by one hour and fifteen minutes. The fastest time was made just west of Aurora, where 99 miles an hour was attained. The average speed for the whole distance, Including stops, is 46.57 miles an hour. It is unquestionably the fastest regular train ever put on the time card west of Chicago. The. average time is said to be even better than that of the fast mails of the eastern roads. Mm.
