CHARLTON GOES BACK TO ITALY
U. '8. SURRENDERS ALLEGED
8tate Department Decides That Treat)
Must Be Interpreted Llteralry
Until It Is Abrogated.
Washington. The state department
Friday decided that Italy Is entitled
to the extradition of Porter Charlton,
which was demanded on a charge of
murder and who confessed to the
murder of his wife near Lake Como,
It Is held by the department that
the treaty under which Italy made the
demand must be Interpreted lfterally
until It shall have been abrogated.
The department holds that treaties
are not reciprocal, which means that
a treaty may be binding, even though
one nation has the advantage over
the other In some of its details. Such
a treaty Is undoubtedly the one now
In force between Italy and the United
States, but the department frankly
says that It will abide by the conven
tion as a principle of national faith.
The decision of the department does
not mean that Charlton will Imme
diately have to go to Italy and stand
trial. The matter may be carried to
the courts where the prisoner's sanity
will be determined. In such event
Charlton would be held here for al
most two years.

8ome Counties Shown to Be Unduly
Adams, Cass, Otoe and Saline
counties have the bet of It, In the ap
portionment of state senators of Ne
braska, on the figures of population
recently made public by the govern
ment. Adams bus one senator for
20.900, Cass has otto senator for 21,
330, Otoe has one senator for 19,323,
and Saline has one senator for 17,866.
Since the apportionment was made
In 1887, Adams gained only approxi
mately 2,000 in population. Cass has
gained leas then 2,000, Otoe has lost
nearly 3.000, and Saline has lost
Douglas county has three' senators,
ocli representing approximately 66,
000 of population. Inncaster has two
senators. -nch representing less than
The eighth district, comprising
live counties, has a senator for 40,000,
and the new census shows a decrease
of population In this district of about
10,000. The Fourteenth district has a
senator for Its seven counties, with a
population of 47.000. Tho Twenty
ninth district, comprising eight coun
ties, has a senator for over 52,000 of
As was naturally to have been ex
pected the main growth of population
In the last ten years has been In the
western counties of tho state, and in
the cities of Omaha and Lincoln.
It would appear from the figures
given that a just and equitable re
apportionment as called for by both
luirties lu their platforms, would
mcon at least one additional senator
lor Douglas and several additional
senators for western Nebraska. This
would mean, evidently, that the very
small districts mentioned should be
switched Into new combinations that
would cut down the preponderance of
power they now have. Otoe and Cass
together, and Adams and Saline,
together, would have as near the av
erage population of tho present sen
atorial lwpulatlon of the present sen
atorial districts ii3 could be handily
In the matter of representation In
the house, too, tho western part of
the state Is not adequately treated
under the present apportionment.
While some of the counties In the
eowtern half of Nebraska have suf
fered a loss In population. It will be
noticed In the tables that, with rare
exceptions, the western counties have
gained In substantial measure.

adulteration occurs by accident or de

Judge T. C. Munger in United Statos
circuit court in directing a verdlcl
for the government In the suit of the
West Point Creamery company.
Fees Collected by Secretary.
The semi-annual report of Secre
tary of State Junkln shows the fol
lowing fees collected by his office
during the last six months: Articles
or Incorporations, $9,640.05; notary
commissions, $389; motor vehicles,
$6,780.80; marks aad brands, $01,15;

Reduced Rates Granted.
The railway commission has grant
ed permission to the Nebraska Tele
phone company to reduce its rates at
Fuirbury tq agree with the rates
charged by the local company. It was
brought out at the bearing that the
Independent company charged $1.25
for telephone where there were
mor than ten subscribers and $1.60
where there were loss than ten. But
It appears that where five or more
persons were subscribers with the ex
ception of Increasing tbelr uuuibej
to ten, the lester rate was niven.
MADE A THING OF BEAUTY
In Recent Years the Unsightly flea
Door Has Been Completely
With the abolishment of the aJlecl
and the back yard, aa H was knows
a few years ago, there tma com a)
great change In the character of the
service and ot the nolo.
In large cities, where the homes
are of necessity set ctooe te th
street, the alley was the simplest sw
lution to the problem of the stah sum!
garbage man. but aa more of as saeW
Into the suburbs where the yards
large and gardens are the hobbies 4
the owners of the home, we cosaei
to live more In the open and have be
come averse to the sight of lauadrx
flapping In the breeze or mops and!
brooms hanging by the side of
door and the garbaga and mbbtal
cans a constant eyesore. In
localities, the Los Anrelee II
says, the fences have goon en!
and the back yards aro made 1
a veritable park where the lawn
continuous, one's Individuality bet:
expressed only In the Bowers plan'
and these must conform to a
extent wua me general juao. i
Hy many, however, this Is coesldM
ercd undesirable, as there Is. mm
course, very little privacy procurable
and fences are converted is to thtsxsl
of beauty covered with Tines. ' In thw
way you have a splendid batckgrotukdr
prepared for any flower yea deexrej
In either case the back porch. sv4
long a theme of repruetcb. must a4t
metamorphosed Into a pleasant
place. In many of the newer houses
the back entrance has become th
side door and Is screesed from the
view of passers on the street by a
lattice fence cunningly covered with
climbing roses, wistaria or soma
other vines. If an artistic gate I
built close to the door many step
are saved and the whole adds to thai
apparent breadth of the bouse. This!
leaves the back yard free for sets
gola and flower garden ausd gives sub
exquisite view from living room s
dining room windows.
By partitioning off a portion c4j
the back porch to bt used exclusive
Iy for the garbage can and rubbJanj
box, these unsightly objects are xd
den from view and one at the bard
est problems is conauered. If th'
garbage can Is emptied! often
carefully cleaned with strong, aot
suds or lye, there caa be nothing rsW
pulslve about such a compartment.
Preservation of 8cettc Beauty.
A new method for tbe preecrrmtSesj
of scenic beauty Is Indicated In a tfa
clslon recently handed down hy the
United States District court sfttinr
at Pueblo, Colo. A water aad power
company sought, by aseaas of con
demnation proceedings, to divert wa
ter which produced rails that were
the chief attraction at a tourist re
sort. Tbe resort coca pen y resisted.,
on the ground that diversion at tbet
water meant the deatractloa ef that;
scenic beauty which was Its chief auW
set. The falls are now protected bji
a permanent injunctions,
Similar steps might bare saved ttii
