I Edgar W Nye as his parents named
himor plain Bill a he has made him
self known to the world made his first
ungainly bow before a Salt Lake audience
last evening and much we regret that it
is likely t be his last A very select
audience of probably four or five hundred
people assembled to greet him and it is
safe to say that the number would have
been doubled but for the strong counter
attraction at the Grand Nye gives an
entertainment which is like himself dis
similar to anything else on earth in the
earth or under the earth He appears on
the programme as it were in snatches
gives an anecdote then a recitation then a
reading and then some stray remarks all
being intermingled piano solos violin
solos etc and the whole working up an
evening nfost genuinely delightful As his
long lank form surmounted by the per
fectly bold head and moonliko bespectacled
countenance which have been made
cuntnance whch so
familiar to readers of THE HERALD
made its appearance and came down
t the front after the manner of
some immense babya big round
of applause went up that should have made
Mr Nye feel perfectly at home He began
by saying they had arrived so late in the
town that they were somewhat weary
they only had time to dress themselves and
buy some real estate samples of which he
was going to take home with him He re
lated anecdotes of his experience since
strtng out on his stage career and re
lated how his trainer had suggested
various modes of makinc UD his urn
gramme including the hiring of a power
ful brass band to play half an hour
at the beginning of his lecture half
an hour at the close and possibly
right on during the lecture itself He had
also thought of hiring a pugilist nnd had
gone to his room for rehearsal Hi had a
vivid recollection of going to the roomhis
mind was not so clear as to his coming
away There was a hornet the wall one
of the oldfashioned base burner kind of
hornets and while the pugilist was looking
at that Nye had dealt him a powerful
blow one that would have killed him
easily if he had been there He told an
amusing little yarn of an Irishman and
read a la schoolboy with a manner that
told his mimetic powers were as
strong a his descriptive the story
from McGuffeys reader published
in TiE HEKALD a few Sunda s
ago The effect with his third reader
covered with colico was something irre
sistably ludicrous Being recalled he told
how when he attended a school where the
penalty for marring any of the furniture
was a payment of 5 or a fearful thrashing
One day while sitting in school thinking
of the tariff ho had inadvertently whittled
a desk and he was notified t procure the
5 or prepare for the whal ing He had
laid the matter before his father who re
marked that his family could stand all the
beatings necessary through the proper
cnanuel and gave him the 5 to pay the
damage On his way to school he began
to think that 5 was a good deal of money
to pay for a spoiled desk and by the time
he got there he had decided to take the
whaling and retain the money Ho did so
And this said Mr Nye solemnly
was the first money I ever earned
He was applauded and roared at to the
echo for all his efforts half the charm lay
in his manner of delivery which is to the
last extent dry quaint and unpretentious
The other features of the entertainment
were pleasing if not brilliant Mr Dow
neys piano playing and Miss Torbetts
violin solos both won warm applause The
tenor had a cold and was unable to appear I
One of the loveliest characters history
furnishes any instance oias Mr Nyc
beautifully describes himself was seated
in his dressing room alone when a HERALD
I representative was ushered into his pro
sence He had said that if there was any
thing more than another on earth that he
liked it was a newspaper man and no re
luctance was felt in asking him for some of
his impressions
There are many changes in Salt Lake
since I was here twelve years ago said
Mr Nye The whole country is talking
of Salt Lake and there is no question as to
your growth from now on
You originally lived in Wyoming did
you notl
12Yes for many years I practiced law
there for a long time in a quiet wayno
one knew much about i and then I gravi
tated back to newspaper work Did you
stay at Laimie and Cheyenne I Oh yes
and had a royal time just as they would
for a funeral and there was a brass band
in full uniform to meet us at the train
How do you manage to write your
letters for publication and keep up your i
lecture work 1
I Well it is very hard and I shall drop
travelling after this season Theres
money in it of course but thework is too
L How do you dispose of your letters
now 1
OU First to the New York World Thon
instead of paying me as much as they
would otherwise do Is I am allowed to sell I
the same letters to the American Press
association of which I believe your paper
is a member This arrangement has been
very satisfactory to me much more than
my former one was with Bacheller Co
Mr Nye was asked the reason why
Riley the poet had thrown up the tour
but he refused to be interviewed on that
subject he let fall enough however to
show that the poet was given to regal fits
of the jimjams that unfitted him for keep
ing engagements with his audiences Mr
Nye had hired the present company to
help him fill his dates and all was going
wel till the tenor took a cold through hav
ing to tend the box office
The company proceed westward this
drew an audience last evening larger than
before Hundreds were turned away
The sale for today and tonight has been
advance representative Mr Femessy has
reached the city The engagement may
now last four nights

The Sorrow of a Millionaire Over
His Daughters Marriage i
Marries Her Clandestinely Becauso Ho Pre
fers a Private Wedding Sensational
Shooting Affair in Chicago
Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch I
CHICAGO March 7John T Lester the
multimillionaire stockbroker of this city
is deranged A strange cause has brought
about his mental dethronement The per
sons upon whom the responsibility for his
condition is charged are Lesters daughter
and Philip D Armour the famous packer
and speculator Mr Lester is tonight at
his palatial home here the subject of the
most anxious watching by his family and
physicians He and his wife were on their
way to Georgia when he was taken sick at
Hotel Brunswick in New York He was
at once brought home being accompanied
by Dr Craven an old friend the party ar
riving Wednesday Dr Craven said to
day uI consider Mr Lesters condition
very serious His nervous system is now
greatly weakened He has had domestic
trouble which has temporarily unbalanced
his mind I dont think he will become
permanently insane though at times he is
quite violent
Mr Samuel Allerton who has been con
nected in business with Mr Lester for five
years said Mr Lester is a very sick
man His present condition is the result
the hasty marriage of his daughter to
young Armour in his business on the
board Mr Lester became run down physic
ally and then this Armour matter came up
and nearly killed him Mr Lester did not
insist upon a great wedding although he
would have preferred it but when the Ar
mours acted as they did it was a fearful
shock to him I dont know that Armour
realized what a mean trick he was playing
when he allowed that marriage to come off
but it was mean nevertheless and is the
cause of Mr Lesters serious condition
The hasty marriage to which Mr Allor
ton so bitterly referred was a decidedly
peculiar affair Some months ago the an
nouncement was made of an engagement
between Mr Lesters daughter and the
son of Mr Armour Both the parties t
the engagement are very young people but
that did not prevent them from from hav
ing a will of their own particularly Mr
Armour jr who seems to be a chip of the
old block in the matter ofindependence
and determination A development of this
trait was made at just this juncture and
the ArmourLester skies were beautified
and serene and then came the little cloud
no bigger than a mans hand and Mrs Les
ter with a mothers pride set about mak
ing great preparations for the happy
event It was intended that the ceremony
should be attended with unusual pomp and
splendor Mr Lester coincided with his
wifes views and aided substantially in its
preparations The bridegroomelect had
different ideas as to hrvnr ho
should be married Hu preferred
a quiet wedding with a feW
select friends in attendance Papa Armour
took the same view of i Mrs Lester
however demanded a wedding becoming
her daughters station and in opposition to
young Mr Armours protestations the in
vitations for a grand affair were completed
and issued and even an orchestra was en
gaged Young Armour was determined
however have his way and Miss Lester I
agreed with him in his ideas The result
was a hurried marriage one afternoon at
the Armour mansion Not one of the
Lester family was present except of course
the bride
Mr Lesters indignation ih hearing of
the mariage knew no bounds His brood
ing over i seems unending and it is
claimed he has never recovered from the
shock In his more excitable moments he
raves over the event and threatecH his
daughters fatherinlaw with extraordi
nary vengence

Moves to Kednce Salt Lakes Public I
Building Appropriation
WASHINGTON March 6 Senator DolphB
special committee having failed to extract
any information from the newspaper men
today took another tack and beginning at
the head of the list summoned members of
the Senate to appear before it and put them
through a course of questioning similar to
that applied to the newspaper men It is
understood that those summoned today
asserted they had never disclosed the pro
ceedings beyond the limitations of tho
rules The examination of Senators will
require two or three days The impres
sion prevails that a resolution to imprison
the correspondents for contempt will fail
but there is a probability that some of
them will be certified to the district at

WASHINGTON March 7The Senate com
mittee on public lands this morning re
ported a general land grant forfeiture bill

by the Senate during the last Congress
The bill forfeits to the United States all
lands opposite to and conterminus with
that portion of any railroads not now com
pleted and in operation for the construc
tion or benefit of which lands heretofore
have been granted provided however
this shall not bo construed as forfeiting
lands heretofore earned by the construc
tion of any portion of a railroad under any
act of Congress making a grant of lands
Persons in possession of any forfeited
lands under title derived from the state or
corporation to which the restored lands
were granted are given the right to pur

quantities not exceeding 820 acres by any
person at the rate of 125 per acre

sons or corporations hold land to which
under the terms of this act they cannot
obtain title from the United States they
are given six months within which to re
move growing crops or improvements
which may be made A clause added to
this section provides that it shall not apply
to any lands in Iowa in which any person
in good faith has made or asserted his
right to make pro emption or homestead
settlement The bill repeals certain sec
tions of several acts in regard to land
grants in Iowa and Minnesota which
conflict with its provisions In home
stead entries of forfeited lands
parties will be given credit for the time
they have already been on the laud If it
shall be found any lands heretofore granted
to the Northern Pacific railway company
and restored to the public domain lienorth

The Salt Lake Building
WASHINGTON March 7After unim
portant business the Senate proceeded to
consideration of bills on the calendar The
public building bills on the calendar hav
ing been reached the following passed
Oakland 300000 Cheyenne Wyo 150
000 Helena 100000 The bill appro
priating 8300000 for Salt Lake city having
been reached Plumb moved to reduce the
appropriation to 100000
Paddock opposed the amendment and
said a site centrally located could not bo
had for less than 100000 The appro
priation should really be 700000 The
rents now being paid there by the govern
ment are fifteen thousand dollars to twenty
thousand dollars a year
Plumb asserted that when he was in Salt
Lake city last summer a suitable site
could have been had for twentyfive
thousand dollars or thirty thousand dol
lars The bill went over without action
and the Blair educational bill came up as
unfinished business Hale opposed the bill
Blair then addressed the Senate He in
sisted that the Republican party was
pledged in its platform to the passage of
his bill and he predicted that if that party
failed to make good its pledge that fact
would put an end to the party He was
not mistaken as to the source from which
most of the misrepresentation in the north
concerning bill had come The judi
cial power of the country had decided that
the way to get control of the schools was
to get control of the press The press had
received its full share of attention and had
manifested it full share of subserviency
The New York papers were monopolies of
the worst land and the country papers
had been perverted and poisoned by them

voted a considerable part of its time to day
to a discussion of the new federal building
at Salt Lake Senator Paddock who had
charge of the measure tried to get it
through without any reduction from the
original figure 500000 The Senate mani
fested its willingness to appropriate

fight and pending discussion the morning
hour expired and the bill went over until

business and will be the first measure to
receive consideration when the Senate
meets again All the indications point to
the passage of the bill on Monday with the
amount reduced to 400060
