Harry Keller of No. 108 Pawnea street was made tbe victim last night of the lust for wealth of. two .strange men who were not particular as to the way they employed in securing riches. If what Mr. Keller told Capt. Thomas of the police IB true, he was held up in hla own barn about 9:30 o'clock, by iwo total strangers, who handled him with roughness and hastily left him, half stunned and poorer by $315 than he waa when he entered the barn. Ho was unable to give even a faint description that would lead to the capture of tho alleged robbers, even if they should appear in public after such a bold stroke of villlany. Mr. Keller said that the family had gone to thepono show, and that It was a few moments before their return that he stopped out to the barn to close the doors, and lock the building for the night. A noise inside the stable attracted his attention, and as ho stepped Inside to Investigate tbe matter he was grabbed by four arma and forced against the manger, where he was held while intimidated by a revolver until hla clothing had been aearched and $315 In money had been extracted and retained by the alleged bandits, who, before they left him, derived a great deal of pleasure from thumping him and raiaing bumps on his head. Mr. Keller gave the alarm as aoon as he could, and in a short time the police had been summoned by telephone, but they were not able to accomplish the capture of the two strangers of whom Mr. Keller related auch a hair-raising tale.

Boyer, of the electric light committee, said yesterday concerning the statement of George Warner, electrician for the Jenney eloctric light company published in yesterday's Pharoe-. "No one has accused Mr. Warner of tampering with the wires of the city's plant." • •Ihe chairman of the electric light committee knows who made the short circuit at Seventh and North street several weeke ago and this makes it definite in hie mind that somebody Is tampering with the city's wires." "Mr. Warner says the cause of our ml,flhaps la that the plant waa over- louded. That la not true because the single dynamo has a capacity o! 1.200 lighta and the ammeter never has shows over 45 amperes of current which only indicates 900 lights. The fu:se which blew out under this load of 900 lights indicating *5 amperos WHS a 69 ampere fuse. Tho charge that the plant is overloadad is simply not true. Just an instant- before Ibe lights went out the fourth time laat Saturday night I was standing looking at, the ammeter. It indicated -12 amperes of current." '•'Mr. Warner Bays the center of distribution for the Incandescent service at Broadway and Fifth streets^and they are attempting to make it supply tha demand of all consumer?. It is not practical or reasonable to expect, one "canter of distribution to eupply beyond a radius of half mile." '•The fact is," continued Mr. Boyer, "that tho light can be ussd five miles awaylf they wrnt to.if the wireislarje enough to carry tLe current. If the wlxe was small the only effect would be that the lights would burn dim They would not go entirely out. So itinakea little difference where the polint of distribution la, ,.lf the wires arei large enough to ' carry the current." i • : 'Mr; Warner sajs thfey have al- refl.dy burned out an armature and it will take $900 to' $1,200 to replace, it." . . . . - •' "The fact of the matter Is" con. tinned-Mr.' Boyer "that there has noli been an armature or a single wire In nn armature burned out alnco the city took charge of the plant. There haa bfaen no accident to cost the city a cent. The armature that was taken out of the incandescent machine, wan taken ^ out because It expanded aom'ewhat under the speed It c'lldarfcost the city a cent to replace it: The Standard company put in a new one as compelled by contract, for the fulfillment of which they were placed under $10,000 bond. In conclusion Mr. Boyer said, "We know that it IB a fact that someone Is tampering with the clty'g line and we propose to find out who is doing it, if it is possible." : TITO Lires Sircil, Mrs. Phoebe Thomas, of Junction Cltj, 111.', was told by her doctors ahe had. consamptlon and 'that there was no hope for her, but two bottles of Dr. King's New Discovery completely curud her and she aaya it saved her life.; ,Mr. Thomas Eggera, 139 Florida St., San Francisco, suffered from a drendful cold, approaching consumption, tried without result everything else, then bought one bottle of Dr. King's New Discovery and in two weeks' was cured.

Agent, Indianapolis, Ind. The Confederate Buttle Tim*. Speaking 1 of Gen. Johnson,il am r*» minded, says a writer In Kate' Ficldfc Washington, of tbe origin of tho confederate battle flaff: "At the battle of Bull Bun," said lie, "the 'stars and bars? proved a failure because they were tot miich like the union colors. 'Indeed,] both armies mistook their enemies-for 'friends, and vice versa. Alter .the bat-; tic I resolved to discard this flag anfl' called for each regiment to procure it*' state colors. This they were not able to do, and I asked the army for new desijjns. Among those presented, one by Gen. Beaurcfrard was chosen, and I altered this only in making it square instead of oblong. This flag vras afterward adopted by the confederate armies generally. It was a Greek cross of blue on a red field, with white stars oa the blue bars." This flag, by the way, wat designed by a Col. Walton, of Louisiana, and by him presented to Gen. Keaure- ffard. _____ ____ 3™The income tax outrage is only an incident of the general democratic record of disaster, dishonesty and imbecility. The crippling- of the measure by the decision of the supreme court merely adds one more to the locp list of democratic "blunders and failures.
