Senator William A. Clark of Mon tana was operated upon for an abscess of the brain at his home in New York. It is reported that he is rally tog from the operation and resting well. .William J. Calhoun of Chicago has been selected by President Roosevelt to act as a special commissioner to visit Venezuela and determine the equity of the asphalt company's claims and other vexed questions. Judge John P. Phillips in the United States district court at Kansas City granted the temporary injunction prayed for by Missouri railroads re straining the state railway and ware house commissioners and the attorney general of the state from enforcing the maximum freight law enacted by the last legislature. : -Maj. Gen. Count Shouvaloff, per fect of the Moscow police, formerly at tache to the ministry of the-interior, was assassinated while receiving peti tions. One of the petitioners drew a revolver and fired five times at the prefect, who fell dead. The assassin was arrested. A great crowd gath ered in front of the house and made a demonstration of indignation. The prefect was the Idol of the people. Within the last few weeks con fidential circulars have been sent out by the agents of the great transporta tion companies Informing their sub ordinates that the agitation for reform in railroad rates has been successful ly stopped, and if the railroad Inter ests are properly guarded from now .until the regular session of congress it can be asserted that no legislation unfavorable to the railroads will be passed. the guilty ones. The report that Ed ward Holmes, who was dismissed from the service, has accumulated a small fortune in the past few years makes it probable that he is now in different to the investigation. Sec retary Wilson is indignant because the New York brokers who were so severely excoriated by him have start ed a movement to retaliate by driv ing him from the cabinet, and the word was sent out from Oyster Bay that there was nothing to the rumors of Wilson's retirement It Is regard ed as probable that some evidence may be secured under which prosecu tlon may be had. Secretary of Agriculture Wilson, It is almost certain, will retire from the cabinet as a result of the cotton-leak scandal not because he is implicated in the slightest degree, or because his integrity is questioned. Developments have convinced President Roosevelt that neither Secretary Wilson nor Sta tistician Hyde knew what was taking place under their noses. The presi dent is far from being pleased with the outcome of the first investigation as it was by no means searching enough. The welfare department of the na tional civic federation has arrived at an agreement with the isthmian canal commission to supply the service of two welfare managers who will sail with Commissioner Shonts and Chief Engineer Stevens for the isthmus. The commission, convinced that proper recreation for those engaged in the various operations of canal construc tion is of importance to their physical and mental welfare, desires to have these men investigate the needs and rr nnnnrfnnlHao tnr fPprMtinn recommend their conclusions and ar range to have carried into effect such plans as are adopted. By the collapse at St Louis of the People's United States bank, the get-rlch-quick enterprise of E, G. Lewis, the 65,000 stockholders scattered throughout every state and territory of the union will lose more than $600, 000, even if Receiver Spencer's great est expectations as to values of the bank's securities are realized. Bank Examiner Cook, who should be thor oughly familiar with the institution's affairs, says the stockholders cannot be paid more than 50 per cent, thus entailing a loss of $1,217,500. The postoffice department has issued a fraud order against the bank and it must cease operations. t The attorneys have commenced an Investigation , of the crop leaks from the statistical bureau of the depart ment of agriculture at Washington, with a view of disclosing whether there has been any evidence procura ble that will warrant prosecution of The report of Joseph L. Bristow, who was appointed a special commis sioner to study matters affecting the Panama railroad, was made public. The report finds that road had been used by the American trans-contin ental railroad lines before it was ac quired by the United States, as a preventative of competition by way of the Panama water route between the Pacific coast and the Atlantic. The former owners of the road were paid to levy prohibitive rates, and the connecting steamship lines hav ing been under control of the Ameri can roads. He recommends that the government retain ownership of the line, charging rates based upon the cost of service and a fair return on the investment, that it abrogate the special contracts with the steam ship lines if necessary in order to procure . competition, and that it establish government lines of steam ers to connect Panama and the Pacific coast Paul Morton has reduced salaries in the Equitable. He issued an order that beginning August 1 all salaries of more than $15,000 a year should be cut 20 per cent; all between $9,000 and $15,000, 15 per cent, and all be tween $2,500 and $9,000, 10 per cent There are five persons in the 20 per cent classification, whose salaries have been as follows: Vice President Tarbell, $60,000; Vice President Wil son, $30,000; Comptroller Jordan, $35, 000; Secretary William Alexander, $25,000, and Actuary Van Cise, $17,000. In the 15 per cent class are Cashier Murray, $15,000; Auditor Jackson, $12,500; Miss Amendt assistant to Mr. Tarbell, $12,000; Assistant Actuary Maine,$12,000, and Renewal Manager Brophy, $9,600. Nine lesser officials are in the 10 per cent class. These reductions will save about $100,000 a year, to which are added the $100,000 salaries of President Alexander and Vice President Hyde, and the $30,000 salary of Vice President Mclntyre, which have been cut off by resigna tions. Some very large salaries in the medical department are being ad Justed. "What is your salary, and is it affected by this reduction?" was asked of Mr. Morton. "I have no sal ary," he replied. "It has not yet been fixed by the board of directors and is a matter for future adjustment" f - "Wm - av yif - i ft rV WW r w r 1V COLUMBIA NATIONAL BANK CP LINCOLN, NEBRASKA.
