That the federal government will
keep the railroads in operation was
the definite assurance that came yes
terday from a high administration
official, as President Harding and
other government leaders lenewed
their attempts to avert a nation-wide
A feeling pervades in official Wash
ington the strike will rot materialize
on an extensive scale, but the govern
ment realizes transportation lines
must be kept in operation.
The federal government has as yet
framod no program of action. Wheth
er tha government would seize the
roads in case the strike call is not
rescinded and the walkout begins no
prominent official would say.
President Harding may call a con
ference of railroad executives nnd
tmion. chiefs here this week in an ef
fort to avert the national strike called
for Octoler 30.
"The mails will be moved," Post
master General Hays declared. Hays
declared if the controversy develops to
a point muking drastic action neces
sary, "there will be action." "1 am
pure parties to the controversy will not
permit developments which will inter
fere, with the government service,"
From President Harding down, of
ficials were trying to devise practical
means of preventing strike now set
for October 30, or making Fuch pre
parations that thn general public and
the government shall suffer as little as
possible as a result of the strike. .

Mrs. Montgomery Steals
Dress From Friend and
Makes Full Restitution
Mrs. Hazel Montgomery, twenty
years of age, pleaded guilty in rounty
court Saturday afternoon to stealing a
dress and other feminine apparel,
valued at $25, from Mis Irma Wag
ner, n friend, wa.;fined $25 and costs
the fine during good behavior. Mrs.
the fine during good behavior . Mrs.
Montgomery then restored the dress
and paid $10 for the rest of the stuff
che had borrowed.
As the story came out in court, Miss
Wagner and Mrs. Montgomery had
been friends good friends, in fact.
Both of thpm were employed in Alli
ance, but Mrs. Montgomery had bad
luck and lost her job. Her friend in
vited her to stay with her for a few
days, a couple of week ngo, and when
she left a new dress and several other
bits of clothing and finery, mention
uble and unmentionable, disappeared
with her. Miss Wagner had her suspi
cions, but they were only suspicions
and she did not make any accusations
or all upon the police for aid.
Saturday afternoon, however, Miss
Wagner saw her friend, traveling bag
in hand, heading for the depot, where
she expected to take the train for
Minatare. She was wearing the
missing dress. Also, as it later de
veloped, she was wearing the missing
unmentionables. Miss Wagner saw
the officers and had her friend called
into court, where the facts came out.
The case was something of a puzzler
for Judge Tash, in one respect. The
language of the statutes is plain
there must be restitution of the stolen
property, if possible. The defendant
was wearing the dress, as well as the
unmentionables, and he feared em
barrassment to the court, the prisoner
and others if he should issue an order
for immediate restitution. Therefore, i
he appraised the unseen and unmen-1
tionable garments at $10, after due
consideration with the plaintiff and
authorities on women's wear. He
then had the defendant proceed to the
iury room, where she exchanged the
borrowed dress for another in her
traveling bag, Deputy Sheriff Mis
kimen standing guard outside the
The $25 fine was suspended during
good behavior, and the costs and $10

Nebraska Land Co. Won
Its Replevin Action in
County Court Monday
The replevin action of the Nebraska
Land Co. against William Boland, a
tenant, was decided by Judge Tash in
county court yesterday after a hear
ing which lasted the better part of
the afternoon. J. C. and Norman Mc-Corkle-sought
to secure permission to
sell 280 bushels of wheat owned jointly
by themselves and the defendant, in
order to satisfy a chattel mortgage
given as security for a $100 note and
a book account of $100. Mr. Boland
claimed a number of offsets to the
note and book account, among them
$77 for breaking fourteen acres of
land, $120 for wages, $3 for driving
hogs to Alliance, $18 for care of stock
and $9 for additional breaking of land.
The court decided that the balance of
accounts was in favor of the Nebraska
Land company after ruling out one
item of $77 of Roland's counter claims.
