t 4 Sweeping Cloak ' < > HI PRICES CUT DEEP ON MANY LINES. ! SHOES ! The coal situation in this section of the country may be in an undesirable condition , but it has not yet como to the pass where cool dealers will only fill orders .on the presciption of physicians , as in Ohio. In the name of all that is right , people should have coal when they have the money to pay for it and are willing to pay , whether there is sickness in the family or not. The real nice question for members of congress to consider on the trust propos- ton ! will bo as to how they may control the trusts without having the legisla tion apply to-and interfere with the smaller business interests of the country. Should the law that will be passed be applicable to the'smaller affairs of the country there will be such a protest raised that will lead to the impression that there were no advocates of on anti trust measure to begin with. It is an ticipated that the measure presented and urged by Senator Hoar would have just such an effect. Governors. Nebraska is now operating under anew now administration , Governor Savage having retired and Governor Mickey having taken up the affairs of state as chief executive. The distinguishing feature of the change are the messages delivered to the legislature by the re tiring and incoming governors. It may beprtjtiflice , but it is the opinion of TIIK NEWS that the messageof the in coming governor , though brief , is much the better document of the two. The new governor's recommendations are all good and just , while that of the re tiring ofllcial mixes the bad with the good and in view of his record , is Incon sistent iu borne particulars. For in stance his recommendation for a state board of pardons , when he so steadily and persistently abused all his powers in that direction , might iu all reason , have been left entirely to the incoming Our Fall business has been much the largest we have ever done in Norfolk and we will now give our customers some decisive bargains to shape stock for spring opening.

Department. ford needed room and an appropriation should be made for this purpose. An excellent suggestion is that the pure food law should bo more comprehen sive and rigidly enforced in the interest of the public health. A state accountant should be provided as an adjunct of the board of public lands and buildings , en forcing economy on the part of the oifi- cals of state institutions and placing the books on a unifqrm system. Of particular interest of Norfolk and this section of the state are Governor Mickey's recommendations that the hospital for the insane at this place be reconstructed and property saved. He departs entirely from Governor Sav age's scheme of consolidation , which is as unpopular at Grand Island , and other towns affected as it' is in Norfolk and vicinity. The retiring governor is in consistent in recommending that the insane hospitals and soldiers' homes be consolidated , while he favors the con struction of an additional normal school. If his theory is good it should apply hi all cases. If the western part of the state should have a normal school , the same reason would dictate the reconstruction of the Norfolk hospi tal for the insane , and with greater force , because the state now has prop erty worth thousands of dollars here to be preserved or lost.

The emphatic protest against the high price of eggs from some quarters is hav ing its effect the hens are beginning to lay. governor , while his recommendation to abolish capital punishment is just as in appropriate , and in view of the fact that ; here is at least one awaiting the ex treme penalty who fully deserves such a fate , might be interpreted as an in ducement for lynch law. Governor Mickey takes up and endorses the re tiring governor's best suggestions and adds other good ones , so that if his rec ommendations are followed by the leg islature , that body cannot go far wrong , lie recommends economy , and his sug gestions conform to that recommenda tion. For instance ho leaves it to the legislature to name the amount that should be expended for a state exhibit atjthe Louisiana purchase exposition , while the retiring governor suggests that $75,000 would not bo too much for that purpose. Governor Mickey's message is businesslike ness-like and wise. Though brief , it contains a vast amount of appropriate suggestion that should receive the care ful consideration of the legislators. Ho takes a firm stand for tax reform and attributes the present condition of the State finances'to n laxity of assessments and collections. With a view to devel oping western Nebraska as an agricul tural section bo "recommends the es tablishment of an experimental farm there , to be under the auspices of the university , co-operating with the na tional government in the reolaimatiou of the arid portion of the state. It is recommended that the supreme court' commission should be continued , though its effectiveness might not be interfered with by reducing the number of mem bers from nine to six. The present commission is commended for the work it has done and it is believed that there is sufficient urgency to warrant its maintaineuce. While not desiring to shirk any of the responsibilities of his position ho recommends that a board of pardons bo constituted , with advisory powers. The free educational provisions of the state are endorsed and liberality toward all educational institutions is recommended. For the adoption of con stitutional amendments , the present law having proven inoperative , it is suggested that it bo made possible to vote on such amendments at special elections , or at least that a separate ballot bo used. Attention is called to the poor quality of oil being sold in the state for illuminating purposes and it is advised that the inspection law bo so revised that a , test for impurities bo required as well as the test of volltaliza- tion qualities. It is suggested that Nebraska should have a part in the ex position at St Lenis , but that prudence should dictate the appropriation and manner of expenditure.
