OUR CON MEN WERE WISE
New York, Dec. 27. The New
York ticket speculators are wear
ing crape and looks of deep gloom
They have just got wise to the
Chicago graft and realized how
their brother scalpers of Chicago
put it over on them by getting
reservations on the best seats in
the big restaurants for New
No New York scalper ever

THE GOV. AND THE SHARK
Lincoln, Neb., Dec. 27. Gov.
Aldrich is in a peeved frame of
mind, and has served notice on all
loan sharks that he will ask the
legislature to pass a bill driving
them out of business.
The governor began his' cam
paign personally yesterday by
threatening to put at least one
loan shark out of business by
force of arms.
The shark went to the gov
ernor and asked him to compel a
state employe to pay exorbitant
interest on a loan.
The governor gave the shark
the choice of leaving his office in
a hurry or being thrown out. The
shark was not thrown out.
