Omaha, Neb., May The circum

barn among the remains of so i c horses.
Mrs. Freeze, the old lady, was lying
near the door at the west end. All the
flesh and hair was burned from her face
and head, with the exception of a sin
gle gray t,uft at the back which was
next to the ground when she fell, and
was thus protected from the flames.
Louis Groteluschen, who, with the
other members of the family, was found
yesterday, was identified by a part of
his woolen shirt, which bore his initials,

lying by his side. The hands had
stopped at seventeen minutes past 7
o'clock. In the large stall in which the
cows were kept, in the northeast corner
Of the barn, were found the bodies of
Ned Graiteluschen and two of his child
ren, aged four anal six years respectively.
The body of the third child, an infant,
was found near thai of its mother by the
door leading into the place where the
horses were kept. A horse had fallen
upon them, .Mrs. Groteluschen lying
under the neck of the animal, and the
child between its feet*. The position in
which the horse lay on the woman's
breast had partially protected her from
tie* dames, ami a portion of her neck
was gashed, as if with some sharp in
strument. Two physicians who ex
amined the wounds, however, thought
they were not deep enough to have pro
duced death, and were id' the opinion
that they hail been made by the toe
calk on the horse's shoe. While the
searchers were at
a horse with both eyes knocked out and
his ears singed to tin* head came stgger
ing toward them, and fell among the
• lead bodies of the other animals. A
couple of well-directed blows from an
ax put the poor brute out of its misery.
in the house breakfast dishes were
washed and stacked up, and on the
table were found three little tin plates
out of which tin; children were accus
tomed to eat. By the side of each was
a slice of buttered bread and some
sauce. Out of one piece several bites
had been taken. In the pantry were
several crocks full of fresh milk, which
was still warm when the men arrived
from Arlington. Mrs. Mary Freeze
and her husband, John Freeze, arrived

London, May The dissentient
Liberals profess to believe that the gov
ernment will, in due time, announce
their intention to propose what they
term home-rule legislation for Ireland;
that Mr. Gladstone will be obliged, if
the government should refuse to adopt
any other policy than that of coercion,
to propose a compromise such as they
can accept, and to which the Irish mem
bers will be forced to give way. The
very success of the government promises
to be their difficulty when the legisla
tion of this session is disposed of, and
no doubt it is felt that a substantial
part of the local government bill is al
ready sure of passing. Everything
points to the whitsun recess as a period
of great interest and possibly of new
formations among political parties. Mr.
Gladstone, who has seen much ebb and
flow of political life, is obviously much
less impressed than some of the younger
of his followers by the apparent success
of the government, and it is notable
that other politicians of great experi
ence regard the facts of the session as
arguments in favor of the view that the
government will be forced on to a fail
ure, either by proposing an insufficient
measure for Ireland or by making no
proposal at all, and so alienating many
of those by whom they are now sup
ported. It is a curious circumstance
that the success of the local government
bill lias caused the belief to spread,
even in conservative London, that it is
the duty of the government, and that it
will not be difficult for them to make
Lord Hartington's reference to the
present bill as a measure of home rule
-has greatly caught the fancy of such as
make up the majority in London, anal it
is difficult to understand how it will be
possible for the government to per
severe in the practical denial which has
been the last word of Loral Salisbury
and Mr. Smith. Mr. William O'Brien
has been once more sentenced to im
prisonment. The charge was that he
addressed an unlawful meeting at
Luughrca. Even if it be granted that,
as the law in Ireland at present stands,
the meeting was unlawful, it must lie
said that Mr. Balfour does not seem, to
fair-minded persons, to play his game
fairly. He made a provocative boast
and threw down a challenge; the Irish
leaders took up the challenge and dis
proved his boast, and Mr. Balfour's
retort is to clap them into jail. This is
playing with loaded dice. The condi
tions of the game are not fair, and for a
man who has the powers which have
been entrusted to the Irish secretary, to
utter such provocation strikes the
majority of Englishmen as unworthy.
If he wants to out-argue and pooh-pooh
his opponents, he should stick* to argu
ment and not call in the resident
magistrate when he has got the worst
of it. The consolation is that it is not
to the interest of the government to
make martyrs, and that Mr. O'Brien will
be as great a power in prison as outside of
it. The same intolerance of any shadow
of opposition is shown by the ridiculous
prosecutions of the past week. Several
men were lineal for shouting "down
with evictions;" twelve were sentenced
for cheering, shouting and groaning;
four others were ordered to find security
for their good behavior for six months or
go. to jail for groaning at the police, and
two were fined for calling a constable "a
buck-shot warrior." If such persecu
tions are continued it will extinguish
Mr. Balfour in universal ridicule, anal
from a home-rule point of view, the
more he gives of it the better.
grows more ominous every day. Though
the peace is not officially broken be
tween Russia and Austria, many
agencies are at work which seem to
make preparations for a coming catas
trophe. Everywhere systematic, albeit
as yet apparently desultory, attempts
are going on to create disturbance in all
the Balkan countries, as well as in
Roumania. There is a strange activity
of Russian agents among leading men
of the Servian Skuptschina. The en
deavor is to ply the latter in favor
of a secret convention which would set
tle things to the advantage of Russia if
hostilities should break out. For this
purpose the army is being worked upon.
King Milan lias become alarmed in con
sequence of these intrigues, and is not
over-eager to receive back Queen
Natalie. His own life may not have
been very exemplary, but the queen's
political leanings are such that the
monarch fears he would only add to the
internal complications and to the
strength of hostile cabals, with which
his own tenancy of the throne is threat
ened if she returned just now. Recently
it has been bruited about that in place
of the Russian envoy, Persiani. the con
sul general at Serajevo, M. Bakunin, is
to be appointed. He is of : the Hitrovo
anal Kaulbars school, and there is a not
unnatural fear lest, at his instigation,
scenes might be enacted one day in Bel
grade similar to those which formerly
occurred at Sofia anal quite recently at
Bucharest. King Milan is an easy-going
man, rather corpulent and not over
famed for personal courage. The queen
is of a more active temperament, and is
supposed to be capable of an unpleasant
energy if an opportunity to exert it pre
sented itself.

The style of writing employed by the

this week widely distributed through
out Bulgaria, notwithstanding the ex
traordinary efforts made to discover the
authors and prevent their distribution.

you do not make reparation for" that
misdeed. But no, soldiers, it is not
you who are guilty, for you have been
imposed upon: but you would be guilty
if you were to remain any longer in

who usurps the title of prince of Bul

reports regarding the condition of Em
peror Frederick to the effect that there

nence can be placed, that a perilous
crisis is expected very soon. In fact,

ti.at the end is not very far
off. From whatever side people look at
him, Emperor Frederick seems to be a
man whose loss will be irreparable.
The cause of spiritual freedom in Ger
many built its fondest hopes upon his
powerful help. To him looked those
who believed that governments, not less
than individuals, are honored anal forti
fied by adherence to the loftiest ideas of
justice anal generosity. The forecast
made by his friends of a noble reign
seemed justified by his first acts. His
accession to the imperial throne was felt
by all Europe to be a message of peace
and good will. The series of rescripts
which in quick succession he has given
to the world during the last seven
weeks sketch with no doubtful hand the
outlines of
Unity at home and peace abroad were
to be the condition under which the
emperor would try to enable his people
to realize in its widest purport that self
discipline which the greatest teacher of
Germany has held up to the modern
world as its standard. He has been able
to do no more than show what a mon
arch he might have been. The acute
turn in the emperor's illness comes
at an unfortunate moment for
Europe. It coincides not merely
with the threatening phase of the
agitation for a Plebiscite in France
but with the advent of spring, which
for political purposes means the practi
cability of moving armies. The Rus
sian forces on the confines of Austria
and Roumania have not been reduced
during the winter, and nothing has oc
curred to altar the belief that some
movement in the direction of Bulgaria
was contemplated as soon as the weather
should permit. A calm, strong hand. is
needed to take Germany peacefully
through the troubles that are threaten
ing in the east and west. Prince Bis
marck's hand is strong enough, no doubt,
but his temper does not mend with age,
and there is good reason to suppose that
he has already given offense to some of
the reigning German princes. The sick
emperor is the one man who can best
keep all the German states in harmony.
So long as it is possible to hope that he
may be spared it will also be possible to
believe in the preservation of peace.
But the removal of his presence from
affairs and the substitution of his son —
an apt pupil of the chancellor and the
representatives of the young Germany,
who seems to outsiders all militant —
would be a change that cannot be con
templated without profound anxiety.
Berlin Advices Report the Em
peror Much linproveal.
Berlin, May — The emperor's sleep
was unbroken for several hours
toward morning. It was the best sleep
he has enjoyeal for many weeks, and he
awoke from it with a good appetite anal
in good spirits. He askeil the physi
cians if he would be able to enjoy the
open air, but the doctors, after a con
sultation, decided in the negative. The
empCror dined with his family, and this
afternoon took a long rest and slept for
a considerable time. His temperature
remains almost normal. Though his
fever has abated, his inquietude regard
ing the slowness of the return of
strength does not lessen. His attempts
to walk yesterday anal to-day proved the
utter weakness of his limbs. He could
not walk a step, though he was able to
stand occasionally. The danger is that
in the event of a recurrence
of the crisis, with his pow
ers of resistance reached to the
minimum, there will be no chance
for him to survive long. The alluminum
can now used has been a positive re
lief, as during the nights, wnen it was
first inserted, the emperor's fits of
coughing have decreased. On Thurs
day the emperor had five attacks of
coughing, which required the cleansing
of the canula. Yesterday he had only
three such attacks. He aloes no more
than is necessary of official work, and
relieves the tedium by changing his
apartment. He is wheeled from his
bedroom to the hall under the cupola,
where he receives oral reports then
to his study, where he spends some time
reading, and thence to his bedroom,
where he rests. His condition is cer
tainly a credit to Dr. Mackenzie, and
everything indicates that the emperor
has again entered upon a period of com
parative freedom from the- worst symp
toms of his maladj , which have hitherto
been followed by increasing dangerons
crises. Dr. Mackenzie will not take a
holiday until the emperor is able to ven
ture into the open air. The weather
grows warmer daily. A cottage will
be erected in the Schloss park for the
emperor's especial comfort, which
will be his first place of rest.

And His Captains Will Be
j • Coaching" the Chicago
With the Chances That All
■Other Delegates Will Get
a Waterloo.
Chairman Jones Would Not
i Be Surprised to See Him
Next Month.
, New York, May s.— The World pub
lishes the following: James G. Blame
will not be inaccessible when the na
tional Republican convention is held
June 19. From time to time it has been
stated that Mr. Blame's plans woulal be
so arranged that when the national Re
publican convention was in session he
would be on the Atlantic, homewaral
bound, and wholly out of reach, so that
he could neither decline or accept a
nomination if tendered to him. The
World, however, yesterday definitely
ascertained that the Maine statesman
will, at that particular and criti
cal juncture, be within comparatively
ly easy reach, so that he. can easily be
communicated with and can accept a
call from his party, if it sees fit to enter
him in the lists, and he seems again dis
posed to encounter the hard and
perilous work of a presidential
campaign. Some time ago Mrs. An
drew Carnegie, of this city, who, with
her husband, yearly- spend some time
in the highlands of ■ Scotland, sent an
invitation to Mrs. Blame asking that
she and her distinguished husband
might join them in their yearly
outing. At the time the letter
was written contradictory reports were
published in almost every news
paper in regard to Mr. Blame's health.
Again there was great uncertainty as
to the time of Mr. Blame's return. On
Wednesday last, Mrs. Carnegie re
ceived a letter from Mrs. Blame, thank
ing her for her kind invitation, and
saying that she and Mr. Blame would
gladly accept. Mrs. Carnegie, on the
receipt of the letter, immediately sent
word as to the time she would arrive in
London. The trip will, in all
probability, be made by coach,
Mr. Carnegie's favorite wav of travel
ing, along and over the border. The
party will proceed through the beautiful
Scottish highlands. Mr. Blame's friends
here assert there is no doubt about his
improved I health. It won* ' ' — c ~*v..
tij»"' say. for" a man to atten '
i«"g trip for enjoyment if he were _. . m
g.od -physical condition. Those who
kfcow Mr. Blame say that he is alto
gether too careful to make such a trip
if he were not feeling well. ' Mr.
Carnegie said to a World reporter last
evening: "It is quite true, that the
Blame's are to join us for our trip to
Scotland. Our plans, as far as arranged,
will call for an outing of some weeks.
We expect to leave London with Mr.
and Mrs. Blame about the 6th of June.
The report of Mr. Blame's good health
is stated."
And He "Will Probably Be Home
. in Time for the Convention.
Pittsburg, Pa., May s.— ln an inter
view to-day, Chairman Jones, of the
national Republican executive commit
tee, said so far as Mr. Blame's health
was concerned, he was as well as lie or
dinarily is, barring a slight cold. "Some
of the stories told about him,*' said he,
"are absurd. To group some of them
into one general denial, I may say that
Mr. • Blame has not decided to be' a can
didate; he has not asked his friends to
make an aggressive movement in his
behalf; he has not written any letter
declining the nominal ion a second time,
and it is not true that he will be on the
ocean and out of the reach of the tele
graph when the Chicago convention is
in session. Mr. Blame said lie alesired
to remain abroad two years, but feared
he would not be able to do so. I would
not be surprised to hear he was
coining next month, or that he
would stay away until next year.
No time has as yet been fixed for his
return. There is no denyiinr the fact
that since the declination there has
been a growing sentiment among Re
publicans that Mr. Blame should accept
the leadership of the party in the next
great battle. This movement has great
strength and will be a powerful, if not
the most powerful element in the next
convention. 1 alo not think that it is the
intention of Mr. Blame- to come out
squarely for any candidate or to
plumply ask his friends to support John
Smith or John Jones. He is only
human, and may of course say 'So-and
so is my friend, and 1 would like to see
him nominated," and such an expression
would have great weight."

and Albert Beadle Joined
in Wedlock.
Justice Nelson Splices a
Couple Not Very Well
GAIN has the fes
tive coachman risen
superior to all ob
stacles to his love,
an d given ocular
demonstration o f
the popular theory
that the fraternity
is especially fitted
jj for fascinating sus
ceptible heiresses
*^and wheedling them
■i. in t o matrimony.
•.(.There was a time
'<w h e n the bank
clerk, on a salary of
$500 a year, had the
call in the matrimonial market in so
far as concerned society girls of mar
riageable age. Then Cupid gave the
tenor singer a show for his white alley.
But the coachman, in resplendant liv
ery and top boots, was the dark
horse in the race. He came like the
simoon, and swept everything in petti
coats before him. He gave every mes
alliance to which he was a party such a
dash of romance that society invariably
condoned the offense, except in in
stances where the color of the groom
preclude the possibility of his ever be
ing allowed to enter the social swim.
The hero of the latest escapade of the
character referred to is a product of the
territory ruled by Gov. Church. His
name is Beadle, and he resembles the.
Prince of Wales in that both wear the
same surname and have a decided weak
ness for the gentler sex. Albert Beadle
may be plain and comparatively
untutored in the ways of the
world, but in affairs of the
heart he plays the limit. In brief, he is
a masher from way back, anil confesses
to being philanthropically inclined.
He first came into public notice about a
week ago. Up to that time he had been
employed by a Mrs. Hoskins in West
St. Paul as coachman and man-of-all
work. He had served the family in a
similar capacity in Dakota. Consider
ing him to be
Mrs. Hoskins, on removing from Da
kota' to i West 7 St.' Paul, told Beadle he
might keep up with the procession, and
he did. Furthermore, he stacked his
cards on Mrs. Hoskins, and in the con
test for tne affections of her daughter
Maggie, dealt himself four aces and
gobbled the girl.
Miss Hoskins; or as she was
commonly known in the commu
nity, "Midget Maggie," is small in
stature, but has attained age wnen
the law says she is her own mistress.
Compared with her Mrs. Tom Thumb
is a veritable giantess. Beadle con
ceived a liking for the little miss
chiefly, as he claimed, because of the
ill-treatment she received at the hands
of her mother. His affection was re
turned by the midget, who is scarcely
two feet in bight, and ripened into love
which matrimony only could satisfy.
About this time Mrs. Hoskins took a
mental survey of the situation. She
came to the conclusion that for his
cloth the coachman was altogether too
numerous in his attentions to the
daughter of the household. As a con
sequence Beadle was discharged. No
sooner had he taken ins departure than
"Midget Maggie" turned up missing,
also. Mr. Hoskins was rendered
frantic by the disapperance of her
daughter. Diligent search failed to dis
cover the whereabouts of the missing
girl. Then the police were notified,
and the machinery of the law set in
motion to capture the pair, for it was
suspected that Beadle and the midget
were not far distant from each other.
For once suspicion wascorrect. Beadle
and the girl were found in Minneapo
lis, and lodged in the coop there, subse
quently being brought to St. Paul, he
to answer to the charge of abduction
preferred against him by Mrs. Hoskins.
On the examination Beadle disclaimed
any intent to abduct the child. He said
lie could not bear to see her ill-treated
by her mother. His statements were
corroborated by the midget, who stated
that she went with Beadle of her own
volition, and then quashed the charge
of abduction by stating her age. Beadle
was discharged from custody, and the
midget returned to the parental roof.
Yesterday Beadle, who is not at all
prepossessing in appearance, ambled
into the oflice of the clerk of the district
court. He wore a smile as broad as the
Mississippi, and to Deputy Clerk J. M.
Redding stated that he was in quest of
a license to marry. Being possessed of
sufficient of the long green to pay for a
license, aim malting o«iin inau inert*
was no legal impediment to the pro
posed nuptials, he was soon furnished
with the important document without
which no parson or justice would con
sent to unite him and the demoiselle of
his choice.
At 8 o'clock last evening Justice Fred
erick Nelson was sittinsr in his office, at
410 Wabasha street, winding up the
business of the day. With him were
Mrs. Nelson, their son, "Judge" Nelson,
Jr., and Clerk John 11. llause. The
conversation was interrupted by a rap
at the door and, without rising, Justice
Nelson shouted, "Come in." The door
opened and Beadle and another man,
named Thomas Hennessy, with the
midget, bringing up the rear, filed into
the room.
"We want to be married," Beadle
said, his face suffused in blushes.
"That's in my line," Justice Nelson
replied, glancing at tne license handed
him by Beadle, and satisfying himself
that it was in due form. "Where's the
"She's here," came in a falsetto voice
from the rear of the procession, and
Miss Hoskins forged to the front.
The justice looked at Mrs. Nelson,
but she, poor woman, was apparently
struck dumb at the contrast between
the principals of the bridal party.
"Judge" Nelson, Jr.. could not restrain
his emotion. He laughed until the tears
ran in tiny rivulets down his infantile
cheeks. Had the occasion been less
solemn he would have shouted "rats."
As it was, he contented himself with a
good laugh at the expense of the groom
and his diminutive prospective spouse.
: Beadle and Miss Hoskins explained
matters. Hennessy made .oath that
Mrs. Hoskins ' desired him to witness
the ceremony, and for this purpose had
paid his expenses and housed him for
two days. All this was gone through

with before Justice Nelson would con*
Then the apparently happy couple
were commanded to stand up and be .
spliced. To facilitate matters. Miss
Hoskins was perched upon a chair. Even
then she lacked two feet of being as tall
as Hoskins. Justice Nelson tackled the
job, the most unique in his official
career, and at the proper time Clerk
Hause gave the bride away. The busi
ness was soon finished, and as Justice
Nelson pronounced the pair man and .
wife, his son and heir gave a shriek, and
as he rolled off the sofa in a paroxysm
of mirth, murmured: "Dad, that's the
funniest thing I ever saw."
The certificate and slip to be returned
to the issuer of the license were signed
by Clerk John H. Hause, Thomas Hen
nessy and Louis A Black as witnesses.
Beadle paid the regular fee for mar
riages, tipped his hat to Mr. Nelson, and
with a cheery good evening to the others,
took his wife by the hand and stole
away in the direction of West St. Paul.

Troops Return From the Scene ol
the Negro Riots.
Montgomery, Ala., May s.— The
troops returned from the scene of
trouble in Lowndes county this after
noon. They left everything quiet. They
assisted the sheriff in arresting a num
ber of -negroes for whom warrants were
out. There was great fear of trouble,
and every indication of it from the fight
of Friday, in which two deputy
sheriffs were shot. The presence
of the troops had a good
effect all around, and after being on
the ground some hours they were with
drawn at the readiest of Col, Jones, com
mander of the troops, and the sheriff ot
the county. It is thought the trouble is
all over. The deputies who were shot
are doing well and one of them was on
duty Friday. It is not known that any
negroes were hurt during the trouble.
There would have been no difficulty but
for resistance on the part of the negroes
to the arrest of some of their number for
whom warrants had been issued, and
their threats to resort to dreadful ex
tremities. LI
A Gang Broken Up at Altoona, Pa.
Aetoona, Pa., May 5.— A wholesale
arrest of counterfeiters took place at
Loydsville, near this city, to-day. For
some time the people of this vicinity
suspected a gang of them were at work
in the neighborhood and yesterday the
suspicion culminated in the arrest of
five persons, four of whom are charged
with counterfeiting and one with ■ tam
pering with the United States mails.
Detective Simpson, of Loydsville, and
an assistant United States marshal,
effected the arrests. Isaac Edmiinson
was the first one arrested, and a lot of
counterfeit money was found in his
possession. It is presumed he gave in
formation which fed to the arrest of the
others, one of them being Daniel Gor
man, in whose possession was found a
box containing dollars and half dollars,
and a complete outfit for counterfeit
ing. Two other persons belonging to
the gang were arrested at Coal Port.
John Myers, charged with tampering
with the mails, it is believed in the in
terest of the counterfeiters, was also
arrested at Loyalsville. The whole
- party was taken in chains to Hunting
don for preliminary examination.

A Motive for the Crime.
New York, May Thomas B. Mc-
Quade was to-day arrested for the mur
der of Miss Lillie Hoyt, at Webster,
Mass. The police believe this will go
far toward clearing up the mystery of
the young woman's death, taken in con
nection with the arrest in Boston of her
uncle, Dixon 11. Cowie, to-day. Mc-
Quade is a medical student, and form
erly lived in Webster. It is intimated
that he # was intimate with the girl, and
the same intimation is made in regard
to her uncle. A desire to hide her con
dition is the alleged motive for the
Will Re Nominated.

as any man, said to a reporter to-day
that he felt perfectly confident that the

Blame. Getting the nomination in this
way it would be a command from his
party, and he could not refuse to run.
He said he knew nothing of any assent
from Blame to the proposition to nomi-
nate him. He did not believe that ho
had communicated upon tlj. • subject, or
made any utterance to indicate any
change in his feeling since his letter of
declaration, "lie will be nominated
