V >\ NKW YOUK, Nov. S,—When a child, Thomas Nevins of Orango, N. J>, played in tho shadows of Klllcon castle, county Meath, Ireland, and as a boy he followed the hounds in tho hunts which have made the Kiileon coverts famous. When ho was 30 years of age. a more serious problem than fox hunt- Ing had to bo faced. So, 32 years ago, ho oamo to America to seek his fortune. The old earl of Fingall was then alive nnd tho present etirl unborn, Mr, Novlus became a contractor and finally a street car capitalist. Recently ho purchased thirty miles of horse ear linos in Detroit. Ho has never forgotten his boyhood homo and the once a\i(o inspiring Killech ensile, with tho - guests who rode to tho hounds. As his fortunes Advanced those of tho oatl of Flugall'a family retrograded, until finally tho estate containing tho castle of Killoen was BO deeply mortgaged that tho loud court of Ireland put it on the market. Then it was that Mr. Novlus found opportunity to satisfy an ambition of his boyhood days. He is now its solo proprietor. Whether ho will ever take possession of tho castle or not, tho earl *s beholden to him for the rescue of his estates. Recently Mr. Kevins visited Killoen castle, where ho met Lady Fingall. Tho earl was in Australia seeking to retrieve his lost fortune. Lady Fingall 1 was ready to surrender the castle, but ,the friends of the earl wished to keep, it for him. Mr. Novins had taken it .put of the courts. If tho earl of Fin• frail wishes to retain Castle Kllleen Mxv Nevins will interpose no objection; if not, he" will take possession. Tho earl is on the Way from Australia to Ireland, and an answer is expected in the near future. "The earl of Fingall's estate in county 1 Meath comprises 1,200 acres, on which there wro coverts, pastures and farms, lit is watered by the river Skeyns, a , lainous trout stream, and is near tbo banks p.f the Boyno. , Dublin is only twenty-five miles away. Drumroe sta- Mon on tho Dublin and Meath railroad is near tho two lodges at the main on- jtrance of the grounds. KUleeu castle covers two 'and a half«aores of ground, at is composed of tho older part, which, was built in tho year 1181 by Hugh do Ojaoy, and the modern wings, constructed in 1841 by James Arthur,' pighteonth baron of Killeen and ninth tearl of Fingall. King John visited the jpastle i in 1210. A tower still standing ,i*s\ known as King John's tower. v IPart-. of the walls of the castle wore blown up by Oliver Cromwell. The buildings dominate a wooded valley. Killeen abbey was built in 1140. Tho /building is now roofless and the walls •covered with ivy.

You say it was a democratic president who sent tho troops into Illinois. That is true, ho was elected as a democrat, but the democratic party,as a partial Ways has been and is today opposed to that policy, while tho republican party, as a party, is a unit In favor of it. You say that Attorney .General Oluey advised the bringing of tho injunctions and that ho is called a democrat. Well, that is true, but hero again tho republican party supports what ho did.

BIG FIRE IN SOUTH OMAHA Tlio reunion Commissioner ItovlewR J nil go . , I.oiljt's Salt. AVAsniNOTON, Oct. 31.— The roargu- mont of tho pension ease in tho district ' court of tho District of Columbia does' not awaken much interest. Commis- ' sionor LocUren is conUdent that tho same opinion will bo reached. In hlsv annual report tho commissioner re-' viewed tho Long ease at somo longth,\ in which ho said: "This cnso has attracted wide atton-. Lion because of tho fact that the pon-i sionor is one of the judges of tho su- srome court of Michigan, and has, upon tlio rostrum, and through the press, uustintlugly denounced tho bureau and myself for alleged arbitrary and illega proceedings in the reduction of his ionsion, and because of the suits instigated by him in this district against uij-self to prevent such reduction." After reviewing the nrocoedlngln tho case, Commissioner Lochreu said: "It is quite clear that under honest but mistaken interpretation of the pension laws by prior commissioners, this pensioner has obtained 'from the treasury more than $7,000 to which he was never lawfully entitled. Should he nake good his assertion that ho will take this -case for decision to the su- premo court of tho United States ho" nay, when it shall be finally decided, consider tho propriety of roturnibg this money to tho treasury. In the same report tho commissioner discusses the work of special examiners vhich has been criticised in congress and elsewhere. Tho commissioner <. 'The report of tho chief of tho divis- on exhibits the character and impor- ;auce of its work. Cases which Appear to haye merit, but in vliich tho claimant is not able to obtain essential evidence are with such information in respect to wit- lesses as -the bureau can obtain', placed n tlio hands of special examiners, who ire often able to discover and obtain .ho evjdenoo necessary to prove the jlaims. Tho larger part of the force is always kept employed in this class of vork. But the special examination division, aided as it is by tho law division, constitutes the main protection vliich tho government has against raud and imposition. Most of the pou- lon attorneys and claim agents are ca>able and honorable, but some among hem are the moat dishonest and un- orupulquB of men, dealing habitually n perjury, forgery and every -species f fraud.. Without special examiners ho villainy of suuh men would operate without chock or foar of detection and >e generally successful.

The lire originated in tho cloak room of the beef killing department and is supposed to have boon caused by rt lighted tobacco pipe in tho pockot of somo one's overcoat. The Omaha department sent three companies to assist those of South Omaha and a hard fight was made for aaveral hours. Tho water pressure wns low and only the presence of a (lrc« proof wall prevented tho total destruction of tho property.

The news of tho osidr's death was telegraphed to London and from there cabled to the United States. Tho United Press had the positive information, fully con- iinned, within a few minutes' after tho czar died. Through tho vigilance and promptness of the United Press the Mail was enabled to print tho special cablo giving the first positive news that tho czar Was dead to tho people of Chicago.

CROW CREEK SETTLERS. CLARK80N AND THE MORMONS >W9*W Report. Tlmt Kct Will Be Chosen Sonntor From Ulnli. OMAHA, Neb., Nov 3.—A prominent Iowa republican who ought to .know what he is talking about, is authority for the statement that James S. Clarkson will in all probability bo elected to a seat in the United States senate by the Utah legislature this winter. Mr Clarlcson has not been taking an active part in the Iowa campaign. He has b«en in the state a few times, but has made no speeches. For about two'-years Mr. Clarkson has been living in Salt Lake City, and it is said has taken up his legal residence there. Ho has identified himself closely with the business interests of the capital city, and ciiltivated friendships assiduoiisly. Ilo now is connected with a big scheme for the building of a railroad from Salt Lake City to the Pacific. It is said that he engineered tho matter of the admission of Utah to statehood, and that his election to tho senate will pay for that service. Nothing, it is said, depends upon the com- pleetion ot tho legislature. Prominent and influential business mon who are democrats ontqretUnto tho agreement, it inj said, to send him to the senate if he should be successful in getting tho territory admitted. SNOW SHEDS QO. Xhoro WIU'Ho No More of Tliom on tho Union Puolflc llond. OMAHA, Neb,, Nov. 2.—The big snow shod on tho Union Pacific, near Sher' man, was destroyed by fire Tuesday night. The cause was probably sparks from a locomotive. The shod will not bo rebuilt. When the Union Pacific was built spores of gigantic snow sheds were erected, and during the Adams administration these sheds were kept up, for there was something romantic in having ' snow sheds, to the president. But under the now regime it is &oenthat tho sheds are not necessary, and are dangerous. The Union, Pacific now,'builds snow fences running' Dack and 'along tho track for a mile or more in places where the snow is heaviest, ana they are as succeosful in keeping the, track's clear as tho shed. Several wrecks have been caused in the sheds'by range cattle wandering in for proteetion from the storms, and several section men have mot death in those buildings. The present management is making no effort to keep up^tho sheds and will rebuild none<that-are destroyed. BIGGER THAN*NEW YORK.

D., Nov. 2.— Tho Crow Creek settlers aro at lust receiving tho instloo which has been denied them for the past nine years. Information is brought hero from Washington that tho matter is now in very good condition. Between 50,000 and $8,000 h(»s already boon receh ed here and distributed among the settlers. This is but the beginning of tho payments, which will be made as rapidly as possible from this time on. The delay was caused by the action of tha treasury department officials demanding and insisting xipon tho right to x-eviow tho work of tho interior department and Indian bureau, where tho claims were adjusted. For a time tho treasury department refused to pav the claims unless each claim could 'be examined in detail. The secretary of tho treasury made* a demand in writing upon the secretary of the -iuteribr for tho original papers, affidavits and proofs filed in. tho interior department In each case by the special agent who concluded his work many months ago. The special agent was sent out to pro- 'curo tho claims of each settler, and those were passed on and approved by tho Indian bureau and then by the interior department, but nevertheless the treasury department claimed the right to review each case, and refused to pro- aoed unless the demand for tho papers and proofs was complied with. Secretary Smith and Indian Commissioner lirowning positively refused to furnish tho - desired papers, claiming that tho amounts should bo paid on their certificates as provided by tho law. The treasury department has finally adopted this view of tho matter, and the claims will now be paid as fast aS proofs of identification are furnished by eettlers who have not .yet secured tho amount to which they aro entitled. the special agent and Indian office had charged settlers who havo subsequently taken land from 5550 to $200 for tho right of re-entry and deducted the amount from tho claims. The injustice! of this, action was i clearly shown and tho.4 department corrected it, and as » result the settlers will receive 5f(!,OOC more than expected.' Tho total amount of claims allowed aggregates 8110,000. Of this amount $8,000 or $10,000 will go to Minnesota, $13,000 to Nobra&ka, BIO.OOO to Iowa, about $50,000 to tho Dakotas and tljo balance to various other states, notably Illinois and Wisconsin.
