Earl Russell Is Married.
Earl Russell and Mrs. Somerville
were married at the registry office in
London Thursday. The matrimonial
difficulties of Earl Russell have been
aired in the English courts many
times. He secured a divorce from his
first wife, who still goes by the name
of Countess Russell, in Nevada last
April, and promptly married Mollie
Somerville, who had secured a divorce
from her Scottish husband at the same
time and in the same state. A ques
tion was raised in England as to th
validity of the Earl's American de
cree. He was tried as a peer in the
House of Lords and sentenced to
three months' imprisonment. The cere
mony just performed in London legiti
mizes his second marriage.
Ton of Silver Is Missing.
A ton of siver bullion mysteriously
disappeared from the Criminal Court
room at Omaha. The silver figured as
an exhibit in a junk stealing case, and
had been left in the courtroom await
ing such time as the proper owners
should claim it The junk dealers
were acquitted on a charge of having
bought stolen propertj'. The smelter,
to which the bullion is said to have
belonged, took no steps to recover it,
and the court had no power to remove
It. When court was convened Thurs
day morning the silver was gone. The
janitor says a dray drove up to the
building Wednesday night, and that
four men carried the bars away. Judge
Baker is much perplexed and is tak
ing steps to locate the metal.
Jumbo II. Assaults Keeper.
Jumbo IT.. said to be the largest ele
phant in captivity, became furious in
his quarters at the exposition grounds
in Buffalo and nearly killed his keep
er, Henry Mullen. The animal is al
ways kept tightly chained, and when
Mullen was at work in the elephants'
stall the beast seized him in his trunk
and hurled him to the lloor. He tried
vainly to trample on the keeper, but
the chains held fast, although some of
the stakes to which they were fastened
were broken. It was impossible for
hini to step on Mullen or to gore him.
so the elephant lashed him with his:
trunk. Mullen is now In the Eme g n
cy hospital with four broken ribs, a
broken ankle and severe wounds about
the head and face. He will recover.
Fire Started by ItoMr.
Larned, Kas., telegram: Shell's big
livery barn was burned, together with
twenty-five head of horses and a large
lot of buggies and harness. At the
same time the Santa Fe railroad safe
was blown to pieces with dynamite and
the depot badly wrecked. It is be
lieved the safe blowers set the livery
stable on fire in order to attract the
crowd to another part of town while
they worked on the Santa Fe safe.
Over a dozen shots were exchanged
between the robbers and citizens who
rushed to the depot. In the darkness
and confusion the robbers escaped.
They secured no booty.
Nation to Control Toxin.
The deaths resulting from the use of
anti-toxin at St. IxjuIs has strength
ened the impression among the Na
tional Live Stock association that the
general government ought to have the
entire matter of anti-toxins In charge.
Dr. Charles Giesswell, the veterinarian
of the association, has been requested
at Denver to draw up a resolution on
the subject. Thi3 resolution will be
presented before the National Live
Stork convention next month in Chi
cago, and a fight will be made to se
cure national legislation this winter.

NEAR I IilHIS
Testimony in Schley Case Will
L'nd Soon.
ADMIRAL AGAIN TO SPEAK.
Will Go Over 111 Evidence as Officially
Reported So as to Correct Error
Sylvester Srovel, a Neitapaper Man,
Gives Testimony.
Washington dispatch: The hands of
the elongated antique timepiece which
stands against the wall in the hall oc
cupied by the Schley court of inquiry
pointed to 12:45 o'clock in the after
noon when Judge- Advocate Lcmly an
nounced that he had no more witness
es to call, and Mr. Rayner. following
him. said that no witnesses would be
summoned on behalf of Admiral Schley
in sur-rebuttal. For a moment it ap
peared as if the famous ca e was about
to reach a su.iden conclusion, but this
delusion was soon dissipated by the
anouncement by Captain Lcmly that
he might ask to be al'.owed to bring in
one more witness on this week and a
statement that Admiral Schley him
self would desire to return to the
stand again to correct errors In his
evidence as officially reported.
Schley Upon the Stand Monday.
There is probability that the Admir
al will consume considerable time in
going over the printed record of what
he said, and there is also an under
standing that he will make some ad
ditions to his former statements, but
it Is not believed that beyond what
he may have to say there will be much
more testimony taken in the case.
The only witness the judge advocate
still has In mind Is Lieutenant Strauss,
and Captain Lemly taid today that if
his attendance could be secured he
would detain the court for only a
short time. Captain Sigsbee will also
return to the stand for the purpose cf
making corrections in the testimony
given Friday by him. These de
tails completed, the argument of coun
sel will begin, and then counsel and
the public will withdraw and leave the
court to its deliberations. The task
before the court is not a light one,
and it may be weeks before the final
verdict will be reached. The members
of the tribunal are evidently prepar
ing to devote considerable time to the
consideration of the testimony, for
they have taken rooms in the city for
this purpose. The testimony covers
1,600 printed pager, and the court
has sat thirty-six days in listening to
it. With the additions yet to be made
in the way of arguments and docu
ments the record will probably run
over 1,700 pages.

ing the Spanish war, and a number of
officers who were heard yesterday and
who returned to the stand to correct
testimony. Mr. Scovel said that while
on the press boat Somers N. Smith as
a newspaper correspondent on May
27 or 2S it came up with the St Paul,
of which Captain Sigsbee was in com
mand, off the shore of Santiago. There
was a conversation with Captain Sigs
bee through the megaphone and hw
himself had used the megaphone in
conducting the interview. The witness
said the Somers N. Smith was about
seventy-five or a hundred feet from
the St. Paul during the conversation.
Sigsbee and Spanish Fleet.
"Give us as nearly as you can the
words of that conversation," said Cap
tain Lemly.
"We had been sent to find Commo
dore Schley, and the first question of
course wa3 'Where is Schley?' The
answer from Captain Sigsbee was:
You will find him in the Yucatan pas
sage Then, inasmuch as our boat
was very slow. I asked him to advise
me whether he thought we could
catch Commodore Schley if we fol
lowed him. and he stated "Yes."'
"The second question was. 'Where
is Cervera?' In answer to that Cap
tain Sigsbee did not speak for a mo
ment. He consulted with somebody
on the bridge of the ship and then
answered: 'I am not sure, but we
caught an English collier trying to
sneak into the harbor this morning.'
That was all the conversation I re
member to have had with Captain
Sigsbee personally. Other men on the
boat had some conversation with
him."
"Did Captain Sigsbee during any
time of the conversation inform you
that the Spanish squadron was not in
Santiago?"
"He did not tell us that the Span
iards were not there."
On cross-examination Mr. Scovel
said he had been at the megaphone
only a part of the time. He could not
say whether others on board the press
boat had talked with Captain Sigsbee.
"Then," asked Mr. Rayner, "are
you prepared to say on your oath that
no one In your boat asked Captain
Sigsbee whether Cervera was not in
the harbor at Santiago?"
May Have Talked to Others.
"It is possible," was the reply, "that
a conversation might have taken place
on the part of some one else, but as
the Smith was a small boat and as
conversation must necessarily be in a
loud tone of voice I think I would have
heard it if there bad een any."
"Are yo'i then prepared to say that
the testimony of Mr. Hare, in which he
said that Captain Sigsbee had said that
the Spanish were not at Santiago, Is
false?"
"No. I am not prepared to say that
his statement is false, and that no such
conversation took place, but I can
swear that nothing of the kind was
said while I was conducting the con
versation, and I conducted the princi
pal part of It."
WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE LEADER.
Mrs. Catt, "and the success of the pro
ject is assured. The plan is to receive
and hear reports on the status of wo
men of all the civilized nations and
their dependencies, with the object ot
compiling volumes of full and com
plete reports on the status of the wo
men of the world, socially, legally, in
dustrially, religiously, educationally,
and politically. This will be the first
such conference in the history of the
world and its result must be manifold
and invaluable to women."

Imply that the government has re

morning which has not yet been di

of plan. It was reported that Admiral
Caillard had been ordeied to cruise

for possible further instructions, and
it is significant that the torpedo boat
destroyer Hallebardo left Toulon at
full speed during the afternoon to rc
join the squadron. A dispatch from
Toulon to the Figaro i onfirms the re
port of the return of the entire squad
ron and adds that Admiral Caülard's
division is still held in icadiness to sail
at a moment's notice. FditoriaUy the
Figaro and other morning papers ex

land Boy mine at Bingham, Utah, for
jslxty-one hours, Charles Nutting was
taken cut by the rescuing party that
baa been constantly at work since the
cave-in occurred. He was alive, but
very weak. The space in which he was
imprisoned was so small that he was
unable to stand. A plentiful supply
of fresh air, however, served to pro

the mine and the rescuers will continue
at work until he is found. There la

May Tearh Turkey a Lesson.
While the question of demanding an
indemnity from Turkey has not been
considered on account of the lack of
evidence showing Turkey's responsi
bility, officials are watching the effect
of the naval demonstration which
France will make in Turkish waters
because of the lesson it will teach.
.May Murder the Captives.
Sofia, Nov. 4. The best method of
transmitting the lansoni demanded by
the brigands for the release of Miss
Ellen M. Stone, the abducted Ameri
can missionary, and of assuring the
safety of the captives, are the matters
now engaging the attention of the
Samakov missionaries, who are nego
tiating with the kidnapers. It is felt
that unusual precautions are necessary
in order to safeguard Miss Stop.e and
the others, as there undoubtedly is
danger that the captives will be mur
dered after the ransom is paid.
Reception to Re Given Miss Stone.
Americans are preparing a reception
for Miss Stone upon her release. The
Russian minister. M. Bakhmeteff, ex
pects a letter soon from the kidnaped
missionary and the brigands through

lieved that Miss Stone will be at
Philippopolis November 8 at the dedi
cation of the new American church
there. After that she will doubtless
go to the United States to see her
relatives. It is hoped that Miss Stone
will be able to reach American by
Thanksgiving day if she is released
by the brigands.
Call Ailment Tainel Knee.
"Tunnel knee" is the latest Harlem
(N. Y.) disease in certain sections,
and it seems likely to take rank
with the "bicycle face" and other like
ailments. It is caused by the blasting
in the rapid transit subway work. Pe
destrians on Ienox avenup were the
first to get "tunnel knee." and it ap
pears coincident with the setting off
of a blast. As this is done at inter
vals from T o'e'ock in the morning un
til midnight, few escape. The symp
toms are an irresistible desire on the
part of one's knees to wabble and slip
from under, al'owing the pedestrian to
sit down suddenly in the middle of
the street.
