Incident Hevlves Interest la Cns
Whose Mystery Baffled Police
ail Still Remains Bjt4
. rablle Knowledge.
A posse of police, accompanied by Tonr
Foote, who a few days a so discovered what
'-. believed to be the remnant of a
woman' dress while fishing In Cut-Off
laYe, yesterday prosecuted a diligent drag-
net search of the lake to e If a body can
he Drought to the surface. '
Mr. Foote fished out a piece of a wotnan'a
-klr and throwing hla line In Sgatn hooked
i second piece, which he says bore evidence
if having: been In clone contact with a
rtly decomposed body. Mr. Foote la ln
heri, the police say, to be mysterious In
gard to the location of the exact spot
here he fished out the woman'! aklrt.
The finding- of the Arena fragment!, which
re auppoaed to have wrapped the body of
4 re. Idella Roae Knight, revived Intereat
n a murder myetery regarded by the police
i the moat perplexing they have had to
leal with. Although the police were pot
hie to exact from the auepecta In their
ustody any admlaalon of guilt they con
ended that the circumstance disclosed the
fetalis of the unquestionable murder of
lire. Knight by her huaband, F. E. Knight.
Story o rMsnpepnrnne.
It will be remembered that Mr. Knight
va missed by nelghbora about April JO of
hla year. Mm. Knight had been 111 and
vas not atrong enough to be out of bed
nuch of the time. When the police vlalted
he-Knight dwelling at 2225 North Twen-
leth street the doom were fastened and
he huaband waa leaving the place. Re
'aid that he waa Knight and that fears
Uncut the whereabout of Mr. Knight
Jvere foolish, because aha had been taken
o a hospital.
Accepting this statement aa explanation
be police returned to the station, but In-
tulry by the chief disclosed that Mrs,
Cnjght was not at the hospital. Meantime
iKnlght had vanished. Investigation by de-
ectlves disclosed that a few evenings be
ore Knight and Met Dusenberry, a hunch
iack teamater, drove from the Knight
iwelllng to the river bottoms, conveying In
Ousenberry's rattletrap wagon a trunk or
ox.
Knight was known to have been infatu-
ited with Jennie Dusenberry, a alster of
he teamster. After Knight's disappear
i nee a letter came from him to the Dusen
irry woman's mother, telling her that
vtrs. Knight prepared a cup of poison for
film and that he switched cups. "You
know the rest," read the letter.
Polio Sueneet Knight.
Mrs. Lucinda Dusenberry and her son
Mel were held at the police station many
lays and examined closely. ' The police
ame to the belief that Knight poisoned hla
wife, hauled her to the river bottoms and
here either weighted the body and threw
t into the river or burled It In the sands
where winds shifting the sand about make
t Impossible a few houra after digging to
telt where the spade penetrated the bars.
Knight waa traced to Denver, where he
visited Jennie Dusenberry. A few weeks
ago the police thought he had been seen In
Des Moines. Jennie Dusenberry a few
months ago came to Omaha and married
a Nebraskan.
The police hope that the alleged discovery
bk .Mr.' Foote wilt throw, light upon the
1 aught case and will -follow up the matter,
wishing to relieve their own apprehensions
as well aa those of Mr. Foote. Foote's reti
cence about his find Is said to t prompted
by his fear of loalng the flOQ reward of
fered for the recovery of Mrs. Knight's
'body In event the body Is found In Cut-Off
lake.
1 Identification would bs Impossible, ac
cording to Captain Mostyn, who Is aoting
chief during the absence of Chief Donahue.
The officers made no tangible discoveries
and soma were n favor of abandoning
the search altogether or procuring a com
plete outfit for prosecuting a systematic
search. It is said, however, that authority
to do this will have to come from Chief
Donahue, who Is now out of the city.

OHIO OIIUIM1CI II 1 1.1. Hill
General Mnnage Trennolna of M. O.
Commends Grain Market Plane
His Road's Jew Depot.
"I think President Stlckney will not en
counter any great trouble In establishing
his grain terminals and gaining hla point
In view In Omaha," said General Manager
Arthur W. Trenholra of the Minneapolis
St Omaha, who was at tbe Union depot
yesterday.
"Be has the right Idea about trying to
locate elevators and mills where they can
have the advantage of chipping over more
than one road and at the same time aave
switching charges. Our road has now con
slderable land In Omaha which we would
offer as freo sites to manufacturing con
cerns wanting to locate, but It is desirable
that -they obtain a place where they may
ahlp ever more than ons road, thus saving
the switching charges.
'It Is the Intention of our line to build a
new freight depot la Omaha during the
next year. We should have reached It this
season, but on account of very heavy work
on other parts of our road the project waa
abandoned until next year. The present
structure will be torn down and the new
one will stand on the same location. It
will be a brick building and may possibly
be two stories high. Th basement will be
fitted up as a cold storage department and
the entire building will be considerably
larger than the one now In use. The track
age will likely be increased In the city
limits and a remedy will be offered to do
sway with the freight congestion. This has
not been definitely decided upon, however.
and I do not give it as a sure thing. A
great amount of work has been dons out
along th line this summer and that having
all been completed for the year we have
laid off too to 800 men, which 1 following
our usual custom. We are short on cars
to move the shipments, not that we do not
have enough cars, but it Is because they
are sent away full and do not return quick
enough."
DRUGGISTS FORM COMPACT
Agree Rot t Cat Prices I'nlese It Is
Don ky All In th
Combine.
Downtown druc stores that have been
rivals In claiming to be the "only cut rate
pharmacy In th city will not cut and slash
quite so freely In the future. For the pub
lic eye and for their own gain they will
lower standard prlcea on standard wares
whenever they see fit, but It will be done
by agreement, and each, will know what
th other Is doing.
Heretofore when on druggist advertised
certain proprietary medicines at a cut
figure It baa been usual for competitors to
go him 1 or 1 cents better. Retaliation ai
ways took place and sometimes the apoth
ecaries were getting rrid of goods at 1
than they cost them so they assert
Now with a community of Interests un
derstanding affairs will be tranquil. Each
store will have Its turn and share In the
cutting, but there will be no leaping at
one another's throats and real knifing of
prices ss In the past. Maybe th publlo
will not be any the wiser at least It will
be Informed of reductions as heretofore,
but unless the move Is prearranged, no
other druggist will go below the original
reducer.
DEBATE PUBLIC OWNERSHIP

Stadents Will Meet Her
Friday.
This question for the coming debate be
tween the Omaha and Chicago High
schools has been selected:
'Resolved, That municipalities should
own and operate, their street railway sys
tems."
Th Omaha debaters are Joseph Swen-
son, Richard Hunter and Ben Cherrtngton,
the same team which was sent to Chicago
last June. Th Chicago team is composed
of Charles Parks and two member of last
year's team, Maurice Burr and Arthur
Meyer.
Th fact that th same six debaters, with
one exception, are to meet again, this time
in Omaha, makes the contest doubly Inter
esting. The commute in charge of the
arrangements has provided a musical pro
gram, Including a solo by Jules Lumbara
and selections by the high school violin
quartet. Prof. Fogg of the university will
act ss one of th Judges and give a fifteen-
minute speech on the value of debating and
publlo speaking. Superintendent Pearse
will preside. Tbe contest takes pao next
Friday evening In th Kounta Memorial

Seeks t Rnla an Kmeel
lent Barn.
The cousin of Marshal MacMahon, second
president of Franc, and the well-beloved
friends of the third Napoleon, had a com
plaint coming against the building depart
ment Friday. Mrs. Mary O'Qorman. who
always pay her S1.2DS city taxes the first
of any woman. Is the cousin. So she says.
Mrs. O'Qorman spent yesterday In th
city hall waiting for Building Inspector
Wlthnell. Unsuspectingly he entered th
office at noon and the cousin of Marahal
MacMahon entertained him with tales of
her former huaband, the late Mathew A.
Carroll, at one time captain of the Queen's
Life Guards In the tight little Isle.
After checking up European history from
the time that MacMahon saved the day for
Napoleon III at Magenta through the reign
of Quean Victoria and down to th period
when Mrs. O' Gorman claims to have been
defrauded out of 160 acres of valuable city
property, due lb 1st honorable Captain
Carroll, Inspector Wlthnell escaped.
This was about 1 o'clock In the. afternoon.
Saturday morning he was seen on the
streets, having kept under cover In th
Interim.
Mrs. O'Gorman, however, was concerned
more about what ah calls a barn at BIO
Nicholas street than the deceased Mac
Mahon. The Advisory board has declared
th barn, also, deceased, and ordered It
removed before th force that Sir Thomas
Newton dlacovered reduces It to th earth
from which It sprung.
' In the Woodpile.
Why," aald she, "the barn Is ' a good
barn an' shure Oi cud hold a dance on th'
second flure without danger to ayther the
occtpants or th' structure. It's there out In
th' prairie three blocks from aany house
and doln' no on harm. .
Ah! OI know why I'm called here to de
find me rights. 'Tls this way. There was
a mane, nasthy nagur a stealln th' barn
panel be panel, an' Inch be Inch, an' I
ca-aught the' nagur at his thrlcks. I chased
him up beyant ths Kellom school, an' he
nlver had th' nerve to come back. But I
found his tlmmyhawk ah' It was a good
lmmyiawk, too, wurth a dollar. Now the
nagur Is afther revenge and he thries to
pull down me Innocent little barn."
The building department has a picture of
that barn It Is the worst picture in a big
collection of structures that have forgotten
why they were built, and the building
department says the barn must go to the
scrap heap, Mrs. Mary O'Oorman notwith
standing. It has not been used for years.
STICKNEY MAKES SUGGESTION
Propose torn Changes In th Sohed-
1 f Entertainment of
Millers Delegation.
The Commercial club entertainment com'
mlttee has received word from President
Stlckney as to the program here of the
Minneapolis millers. Hs favors the electrio
cars for a tour of th city, as they are
more rapjd than the carriages, and favors
tbe making of acquaintances and generaj
conversation. Hs does not particularly care
to have these men visit th land which hs
has purchased for the grain tracks, but
rather desires a general Inspection of ths
city and a noon meeting with th bankers,
grain men and other business men at the
Commercial, club. A luncheon will be
served there, and Mr. Stlckney will make
a talk of some length, the party not rising
perhaps until about i o'clock. As th Min
neapolis men do hot depart until after 7
o'clock, it Is probabls that a dinner will
be given at the Iler Grand with carriages
waiting to convey th visitors to th depot

from Cnstody,
Two colls of copper wire were discovered
Friday night by a fisherman named James
West near Gibson and Just below ths round
house at that place. The Wire Is supposed
to be that which was stolen from the power
house of the electrio light company last
Sunday night, when the night watchman
was held up by Charles Cartwrlght and a
feUow who gave his bams -to the polio as
"Bill Bailey." The watchman says he was
held up with a shotgun by Bailey, and he
believes that Cartwrlght atols th wire at
that time.
Cartwrlght and Bailey are both In Jail,
and Morris Cohen, a Junk dealer who was
supposed to have bought some wire from
the men, has been apprehended. There ap
pears to be no case agalnat the Junk man,

Charcoal la a remedy that th more yon

Charcoal ffectually clear and improve

WILL NOT ACCEPT THE TAX SALE ACTS
Elsasser Believe Cnslt f-nmmlaa
sinner Will Order Sale for
' Next Yenr Inder th
Scavenger Law.
Much Interest I manifested relative to
the tax sale which Is to be held Wednesday
under the supervision cf County Treasurer
Elsasser.
The sale this year will be conduoted under
the new revenue law, which Is Identical
with the sale held in previous year with
me exception ot tne interest, which used
to be 20 per cent, but under the new revenue
law Is only is per cent.
Mr. Elsasser was restrained from selling
under the Mickey act, which Is house roll
No. 488, by an action recently brought In
tbe district court by the city attorney and
others. Mr. Elsaaser announces that he
never Intended selling any property under
this act, as hs had conferred with the
county attorney, and It waa decided not to
sell under that set unless th county treas
urer was mandamused to do so. This wis
also th suggestion offered by the deputy
attorney general of the state, with whom
Mr. Elsasser conferred.
The opinion Is held by Mr. Elsasser that
the county commissioners, upon whom It
devolves, will order th 1904 sal to b under
th "scavenger" act, which ths commission
ers would have adopted had It been possible
to get the books ready to file suit. And It
Is th full intention of the commissioners to
adopt that plan for the next year's sale.
The Mickey law Is separate and distinct
from the general revenue law or the "scav
enger" act
What Scavenger Act Does.
Ths "scavenger" sot provides that "all
city and county taxes are to be compiled
Into one place by the county treasurer,
which will combine state, county and mu
nicipal taxes. Interest and advertising In
cluded, on or be lore the 1st Hay of July.
The county treasurer shall also file with
th district clerk--of the county In which
the land are located a petition aa pro
vided for by this law, and these shall, be
docketed with the district clerk ss a suit
In equity and Judgment will be then ren
dered by th court upon these numerous
cases ss a unit After the Judgment pro
vision is made for a regular sale the first
Wednesday In November, at which the
county treasurer is authorised to sell to
the highest cash bidder such certificates
of tax sale Issued to the state, county or
any municipality under this set."

HOAR TALKS ON THE ISSUES
Senator front Massachusetts Addresses
People of that Stat on Pollt
lenl ftnestlone.
WORCESTER, Mass., Oct. SL-Repub-
llcans held a mass meeting tonight In
Mechanics' hall, the principal speaker from
out of the stat being Secretary ot th
Treasury Leslie M. Shaw, while other
speakers Included Senator Oeorge F. Hoar,
who was chairman of the meeting; Her
bert Parker, attorney general of Massa
chusetts; ex-Congressman Joseph ' It.
Walker of Worcester, and ex-Representative
Charles T. Tatman, who spoke to ths
young men of th republican party.
Senator Hoar declared that "the demo
crats campaign in Massachusetts is not a
struggle alone or chiefly for the state gov
ernment of Massachusetts, but Is a strug
gle for position In the great national battle
of 1904.
"Old the democratic party," the senator
asked, "In Its whole career ever redress
a grievance? It has created a good many.
It has defended a good many, It defendod
slavery. It created the civil war.
"Th republican party paid th debt when
the democrats would repudiate It, It kept
the faith when the democracy would have
broken It. It retains sound money when
democracy was for fiat money. It made
gold and silver the standard of value when
democracy was for rags. It kept the gold
standard the standard of the world when
democracy was for free sliver. It main
tained the protective system and achieved
the ' manufacturing Independence of the
country when the democracy was for free
trade." ...
Speaking of the trusts, Senator Hoar
said:
The American republic shall not be
turned Into a plutocracy. The millionaire
and the day laborer must stand as equals
before the law. The attorney general,
under the direction of the president, has
already Accomplished much to curb these
Irresponsible grants. This is the attitude,
as I understand It, of the administration
of President Roosevelt.

SIR HENRY DURAND PLEASED
Ambassador mt Madrid Glad t
Transfer to Post at Wash

MADRID, Oct. L Sir Henry Mortimer
Durand, the British ambassador to Spain,
who was recently appointed British am
bassador to the United States, was inter'
viewed today by a correspondent of th
Associated Press st ths British embassy
here. Concerning his appointment to Wash
ington, Sir Henry said:

though certainly a pleaaant one. I had no
intimation of it until I received an Inquiry
from the foreign offlce. asking If I would

7 . w, ii.ii.ri,tt tn n to America, which I
have long admired and have been .anxious
to visit. The leading American statesmen
ar only known to me by reputation. Bo
I hav yet to aoqualnt myself with Ameri
can men and American affairs.
When asked what line of policy he would
follow, ths ambassador answered:
That la difficult to snswer, owing to my
unacqualntance with the country, but nat
urally I ahall follow the lines laid down
by the foreign offlce and British Interests.
Regarding the difficulties of my new poal
tlon. unless I am mistaken they will not
be very great, perhaps less than at Madrid,
owing to the number of pending Interna
tional ouestlons here. The relations be
tween the Vnlted State and Oreat Brit
ain are most cordial, there being no Seri
ous litigation pending between the two
Anglo-Saxon nations and I am personslly
convinced that Oreat Britain will use every
endeavor to prevent causes of friction,
ss made evident by the eubmtelon of
Alaska oueetiona to arbitration. The polit
ical horlson being therefore cloudless, I
imagine my P"rt at Wexhlngton will b
social rather than diplomatic.
I confess that I leve here with rerret.
The society is charming and I have made
many sincere friendships. I came to Madrid
somewhat prejudiced by what 1 had heard
of Spanish-wide snd Caatlltlsn haughti
ness, hut I have neen with mv own eyes
thst this wss pure fiction. There are no
more frank or more courteous people in
the world than the Spaniards.
My official relations have been easy and
agreeable. Bps In is wisely devotlns1 her ch'ef

SEVERE STORMS IN ITALY
Lightning Strikes th Hunting Lodge
of King, Setting it on
Fir.
ROME, Oct H. Distressing accounts
have been received from th entire penin
sula of th effect of extremely tempestuous
weather. In the north snd south great
quantities of rain have fallen, causing
floods and accompanied by heavy light
ning and high winds. Severe storms at
Sea are reported, but no lives are known
to have been lost The thunderbolts have
caused several extensive fires. One thun
derbolt fell on the royal hunting lodge nt
Ban Rossore, where King Victor Emman
uel and Queen Helena now are. A fir re
sulted which sssumed such alarming pro
portions that ths fir brigade from Pisa,
the nearest to San Rossore, was called out.
The sovereigns took a great Interest In
the work of extinguishing the fire. Several
snap shots of ths fir scenes Were tsken
by th queen.
DENVER, Oct. 80. -Th storm which be-'
gun with rain about o'clock last enlng,
changed In the night to snow i t was
general over almost th entire ttate. de
laying railroad traffic considerably. In the
mountains snow fell heavily. The weather
is not very cold, but a cutting wind was
ths most disagreeable feature of th
storm.
SITUATION MORE WARLIKE
London Hears Report that Jnpanese
Cabinet Haa No Hop for
Peace.
LONDON, Oct. M. Th Morning Post
says today that it understands that Japan
Is by no means prepared to acquiesce In
the suggestion that it glvs Russia a free
hand In Manchuria in exchange for a Japa
nese free hand in Corea. Japan contends,
say the Morning Post, that the two ques
tions are entirely separate, that Corean In
dependence already has been secured by
convention and that as Manchuria was re
stored to China by Japan at ths Instigation
of European powers, it naturally cannot
cohaent to Its occupation by Russia.
The correspondent of the Daily Mall at
Kobe quotes tn Hoschl Shlman of Toklo
to ths effect ,that the diplomatic corps ot
ths Japanese capital have no hope of a
peaceful settlement of the pending difficul
ties. Even Baron Shlbusawa, at a meeting of
the Bankers' union, advocated war, si
though th intereat of the bankers Is logic
ally in ths direction of peace.
CLOCK KINDLES THE FIRE
Aatomntl Devle Which 1 Classed
a m Blessing to th Barly
Riser.
An automatic fir klndler, the operation of
which Is regulated by an ordinary alarm
clock, will doubtleas appeal to every person
whose duties Include getting up early to
start th fir In the kitchen stove.
With this new contrivance Installed in a
house It Is necessary, upon retiring, simply
to assemble th fuel In the stove or any
fireplace, connect an attachment to th
clock and set the latter at any required
hour. When the alarm sounds a fulminate
la ignited, which, communicating with an
Inflammable substance In the stove, range,
furnace or grata, Immediately start th
fir. By th time the householder or serv
ant Is up the fir Is burning briskly and
ths water boiling.
It ia claimed that theae new devices may
b so set that they will start fires whenever
wanted and thus have a home thoroughly
heated before the occupants stir from their
beds. From the back of the clock used m
connection with th automatic fir Vlndler
extend a shaft, on which Is mounted a ro
tary friction disk or rulley, th periphery
of which Is milled or otherwise designed
to create friction when rotated in contact
with a relatively stationary member. By
th operation of a pivotal arm, a lug snd
spring snd other attachments In connection
with the rotary disk this entire external
mechanism Is set In motion when the alarm
Is released.
Instantly a fuse, with an easily lgnl table
fulminate at Ita end and held In place in a
slot opening against the Jrictlon wheel. Is
set a P. re. The flame, properly confined
within the metallic slot, travels instantly
over the Inflammable strand, which la sat
urated with a free-burning Ingredient. The
clock may be set on a nearby shelf or on
the back of the stove or a furnace pro
jection. As even a small and cheap alarm
c'otk may be utilized and as the tube-Incased
fire strand may b safely controlled,
that part of the problem I very simple.
Moreover, any kind of kindling substance
ordinarily used may be utilised. Th fus
may be employed merely to Ignlt paper
under the regulation kindling wood lire,
w ith coal or cord wood on top. In such
cases the action is similar to that of a
mutch or, rather, of several matchea lighted
simultaneously and burning longer than
rsilurJr matches. flaturilay Evening Post.
