Omaha Exercised Over Strange
Case of Crime.
A TERRIFIC CLOUD BURST
Railroad Tracks Washed Away and
Crops Destroyed Naval
. ' ' . Officer Conjured.
Omaha, July 3. Five badly frightened
individuals occupying murderers' cells at
the police station, ' a residence resem
bling In many respects a slaughter house
and 'the unaccountabb absence of John
Seljan are the features of a peculiarly
mysterious tragedy, which is engaging all
of the Omaha police and detectives to
night. Seljan is the Supposed victim, and
Mr. and Mrs. Mote Mlkan, Anton Ruck-
ovltz, John Uban and John Drubniti ur
the prisoners. Robbery Is the presumed
object of the crime, but the feature moat
confusing to the police, ia the unexplained
absence of the corpse. .
The boarding house lat 1205 Pierce St.
is the scene of the crime. A hasty exam
ination of the bedroom. In which the
man is supposed to have been murdered,
shows unmistakable evidence of a bloody
conflict. A great pool of blood was lo
cated near the head of the bed and the
bed clothes were saturated In several
places with blood. Bloody footprints
were found on the bed, quilt and pillow.
A razor, pocket knife and crowbar were
found in the bedroom, which, from ap
pearances, were used tis weapons in the
struggle. Several of the persons had
blood on their clothe. All those con
cerned are Poles.
Monday the missing man received $1000
from the old country!, To obtain this,
the crime was committed. Two trunks
were taken from the! house during the
night and sent to St. Louis. . The police
are investigating this clue and think the
body has been Cut up and placed in the
vance was the work of Mr. It. Loverldge,

Five hundred Incandescent lights arrang- H&Himond
the building, one around the cornice and

RATES TO BE MADE REASONABLE
London, July 3.-At the caacluslaiv of
the Unlversitiis' tests today, W. J. Oak
ley, president of the Oxford Athletic
Club, said to a reporter of the Associat
"WeU.-the question of Yale's challenge
now rests with Cambridge, ns Oxford
has been defeated."
Subsequently representatives of Oxford
and Cambridge met and considered Yale's
proposals. At itho 'close of the meeting
the following statement was Issued!
"The committee decides that as Harvard
lefused to agree to their purt of the orig
inal proposal, It would not be deslrablo
for Oxford and Cambridge to meet Yale
single-handed, which reasrii the commit
tee regrets In view of th sportsmanlike
proposal of Yale. Any other American
combine seems under the circumstances
to be impossible. It now only remains
for Cambridge, us winner of today's con
tests, to decide whether she can consider
Yale's challenge. " This they propose to
do Immediately and, are to communicate
their decision at the earliest date; Yale's
proposed date Is too late for the Cam
bridge October term."'

NAVAL DECISION. .
Washington, July 8. Secretary Herbert
has acted on the findings of the court
martial held, at Lhe Mare Island Navy
Yards in the cases of Lieut. W. W. Bu
chanan, division officer, and Lieut. J. D.
Dorn, ordinance officer of the Olympla,
tried for negligence resulting in the acci
dent to a gun, causing the death of Gun
ner Johnson. Secretary Herbort approv
ed the acquittal of Buchanan, but In the
esse of Dorn disapproved the findings of
the court-martial, which acquitted him.
In refusing to approve the findings of
the court in the case of Lieut. Dorn, Sec
retary Herbert read quite a lecture to
the nav.il officers. The accident was
caused by the failure of some one to
fill the recoil cylinder with the liquid.
A dally inspection of the recoil cylinder
ils required, though no particular person
Is designated to make the inspection.
The secretary says! "It cannot be that
on a new ship so plain a regulation can
De violated and no one to blame. The de
partment cannot approve the decision
which seems to hold that in a case like
this the ordnance officer Is not responsi
ble, simply because the regulations do
not declare it in so many words, The
officer txerclsed control over, and super
intendence of, all who are benea'h him.

A GOOD SHLiUCTION.
Washington, July 3. The selection of I
Prof. Moore, of Chicago, as chief of the
weather bureau, it is expected will be
officially announced within twenty-four
hours. The appointment will be strictly
in the line of the olvll service. Professor
Moore has been a Hfe-long employe in
the service. He Is a Republican and was
born 41 years ago. He had no political
backing for the office and the announce
ment of his appointment will be the first
Intimation to him that his selection has
been considered. He received his first
appointment to the signal service when
he was 21 years old, and has been with It
and the weather bureau ever since.
' It Is understood that Mr. Hammond has
secured an option on the South Coast rail
way, running, from Young's Bay to Clat
sop bench points; that he Is negotiating
with and arranging for some coaches be
longing to the O. R. and N. and equipping
the line in first-class condition for the
seaside business. His Intention is to use
an Oregon Pacific engine, and with the
new equipment he will receive from the
O. R. and N. Co. the patrons of the
South Coast can congratulate themselves
upon securing better facilities to reach
South Coast points than havi be-n In ef
fect for a number of years.
Upon inquiry It was found that the rate
which will bo adopted by the different
companies will probably be pa 0. basis of
about 3 to Young's bay, and $3.50 to
beach points, and that a similar rate
will apply tc North beach.
Arrangements have not yet been per
fected for ticketing, through on account
of Mr. Hammond's delay In securing an
option on the South Coast road, but it has
been the Idea of the. lines Interested to
make the rates the same to both Ilwaco
beach and Clatsop beach points.
The establishment of the side-wheel
steamer (North Pacific, between Astoria
land Ilwaco, will furnish superior service
to that heretofore in effect. Arrum,
memo nave Deen completed Dy which a
license Is secured for the steamer which
allows her to carry 360 passengers. Th
service heretofore has only been that of
the, , steamer Ilwaco,. which Js a, sery
fHv:-fitht-Ciaft, and accorded th pa
trons inadequate facilities for comfort.
From present appearances, it would look
as though the patrons of both beaches
this -season would secure a. better 'class
of accommodation "than they have here
tofore enjoyed, and the result-wlll.be
beneficial, as many will take advantage
of the- low rates and Increased facilities
which are offered. Oregonian. .
From the latest advices received by
those who are posted It Is thought that
the deal for the Seaside road was con
summated yesterday by Mr. Hammond
and that he will be here the last of the
week to commence operations.' It 1 also
understood that the Fhivtl Land Conv
pany matter has been arranged to his
entire satisfaction so that there can be
ho delay on either side of the bay.
UNION PACIFIC SPEAKS.
Omaha, July 3. President and Manag
ing Receiver Clark, of the Union Pacific,

Uttendance at the special master In chan
eery court, where testimony will be taken
on the question, of the Union Paclllo cou
pons and the advisability of selling some
of the equipment of the Kansas Pacific.
Mr. Clarke today said that the Indica
tions pointed to an, upward tendency
In the stocks of the granger roads, for
the reason that If all present conditions
were realized, a tremendous grain crop
would have to be moved this fall.
"From the East comes the cheerirg
words of healthier business conditions,"
ha said. "The manufacturers of steel
rails, steel plates sand other railway sup
plies, are patting on Increased forces and
running to their full capacity. This is a
hopeful sign and it may be that we are
at the turning of the tide which will
bring us renewed prosperity. Here in
the West we can hardly hope for any ma
terial change until the crop are gath
ered, for we are essentially an agricul
tural people, but the East, which reflecis
the prevailing sentiment Of the country,
shows stronger he pes in the future than
for two year past, and we cannot help
but benefit from thl change."

letter of farewell was read from the Rt.
Hon. W. E. Gladstone, who ha represent
