The appointment of Dr. John Koutsky
as deputy registrar of vitality statistics of
South Omaha, which was announced by
the head of the State Board of Health,
Dr. W". H. Wilson, yesterday, follows an
Interesting bit of South Omaha life on the
!sside of the political circle.
Heretofore the city clerk, J. J. Olllin and
E. P. Roggen, his deputy, have been the
uppolntees as deputy and sub-deputy to
compile these statistics. In all rural dis
tricts the law provides a fee of 25 cents per
entry for births and deaths. This Is di
vided between the deputy and sub-deputy,
15 and 10 cents each. In cities of the metro
politan class the state pays no fees, but
It was interpreted to mean that the mu
nicipality was to shoulder the payment of
the fee which has usually amounted to
from $8 to $10 monthly In South Omaha.
The chairman of the finance commltta
of the council it ia said, by the Incum
bents In the city clerk's office, not long
since became much incensed at the deputy
city clerk, a fellow democrat, charging
him with appearing before the grand Jury
and offering statements which caused a
summons to be Issued to the chairman,
Matt Peterson. The experience before the
grand jury la said to have hurt his pride
considerably. On getting into the harness
again he ' found the clause In the law
covering vital statistics which reads: "Pro
vided, Further, that local registrars in
cities of the metropolitan class and first
class cities shall receive no further com
pensation for duties performed under this
act." He interpreted this to mean there
should be no fee at all tor compiling the
statistics. So he refused tp pay the claim 1
of the clerk and his deputy when next pre
sented. The clerk and deputy claim that
the clause, "no further compensation"
means explicitly that they are entitled to
the fee named, but the Intent is to prevent
an additional municipal fee which In a
city of the size of Omaha' and South
Omaha would be quite remunerative.
Therefore, the city clerk and the deputy
at once resigned the office. They say now
that the chairman of the finance committee
Is enraged because Dr. Koutsky was the
man named to succeed them.

In Western Nebraska.
SCOTT'S BLUFF, Neb., Dec. 7. To the
Editor of The Bee: I was truly glad to
note in your Issue of December 3 that there
was at least one great daily in the state
which would publish the sentiments of "a
western Nebraska lawyer" even If it did
not endorse them. I think, however, that
it would be a good idea for your paper to
raise the banner of western Nebraska, and
show us that you recognize us as a part
pf the great commonwealth to which you
belong. And I believe It would be good for
Omaha. I do not see why "a western Ne
braska lawyer" should have expected Shel
don to appoint a western man to the su
preme bench. It would not have been in
keeping with his prior conduct. Did hu
show any signs of gratitude In making his
appointments when he was elected gov
ernor? Did he while a member of tha
senate or at any time during his official
career show any sympathy with the great
common people, or show tha least signs of
gratitude for what they had done for him?
It is true that owing ts the conditions
that exist In western Nebraska we sorely
need a member of the supreme court who
Understands our needs. This being an
Irrigation country renders It necessary that
the state have an Irrigation law, which we
have. But no Judge who lives In any other
than an Irrigation county can so well un
derstand the laws as one who lives in an
irrigation county and comes in contact
with .them all the time. Yes, one of the
supreme Judges should have been from the
Sixth district and surely as far west as
North Platte. And there Is good timber In
Yes, Sheldon's action In making these
appointments was bad, was damnable, but
no worse than the action of the Nebraska
legislaturo for the last eighteen or twenty
years In refusing to redlstrlct the state.
For the last twenty-five years one-third
of the territory of the state has been and
Is yet represented in the senate by two
senators and in the house by three repre
sentatives. Even now a large -portion of
the state Is not recognized as a part of the
state government. And a county which in
the near future must be recognized as the
equal of any part of the state is still
designated as "the unorganized territory
west of Logan county." This Is a burning
shame. And no longer ago than the las:
session one of the finest counties in the
state had Us representative stigmatised by
Hon. Joe Burns of Lancaster aa "the gen
tleman from tha unorganised country west
of Logan.". Y-t when Lancaster is In the
market for a large appropriation for the
state university, the state prison, the asy
lum or some other Institution kept up by
the entire state for the benefit of Lan
caster, then the representative from the
unorganized territory Is all right also. Oh,
yest western Nebraska is expected to come
up to the scratch and shell out to pay for
all public buildings and all public institu
tions and see all of them located within
luft miles of the Missouri river. And have
all the officers, both state and national.
selected from the same territory.
Is it any wonder that the western stock
men are beginning to look for a 'marker
for their stock in Denver Instead of Omaha?
Is It any wonder that the Idea of cutting
the panhandle off of Nebraska and annex
ing It to Wyoming la a popular Idea In
western Nebraska. It Is too bad that such
a feeling should be allowed o irrow up In
the west. But how can anything else be
expected so long as our eastern brethren
deny us proper representation, and so long
as we are compelled to hear our senators
and representatives say when they do
condescend to come out and see uo: "Why,
I never dreamed that you had such a coun
try out here." How can the state expect
the eople In the western counties to be
very enthusiastic in their loyalty to either
compel them to be represented by one-half
the state or to the political parties which
the representation they should have and by
men who live so far from us as to be com
pelled to say to us: "I never dreamed that
you had such a country out here." East
ern Nebraska and the great dallies of
Omaha and Lincoln had better wake up and
recognise us as a part of Nebraska, or
some day you may find a large volume of
trade going somewhere else. We love Ne
braska, b it we must feel that It loves us,
or ws may be weaned. We will do our
share to taks cars of Sheldon when - be
comes out for the senate, and ws will be
glad to help Omaha get a senator next
time, provided the great dallies of Omaha
recognize us as belonging to Nebraska,

Fashionable Modistes Abandon It for
Styles ot the Renaissance
Seeking for fresh worlds to conquer, the
dressmakers of highest renown have defi

their source of Inspiration and are going
to take the renaissance for their guide. It
was a day of sumptuous dress. Influenced
mainly by Italy and particularly by Venice
and Florence, a day of lavish display of
Jewelry and of a very pretty If extravagant
taste In perfumes. Catherine de Medici and
Margaret of Valols in all their splendor
will serve as patterns for the new modes.
Nor will the dandified dress of tho men
