Omaha Strike in Politics.
Lincoln. Oct. 0. The street car
strike In Omaha will In time to come
probably have some effect on state
politics. For many years a number
. of parsons have had an idea that G.
\V. Wattles , president of the street
railway company had an Itching to
rwprosont Nebraska In the upper
bouso of congress and during recent
years Mr. Wattles has been making
ju > me Inroads Into the affections of
the people of the Nebraska metropo
lis at least. The strike of the con
ductors and motornifii , however , has
lined up against Mr. Wattles the la
boring men of Omaha and they have
declared unofficially to be on his
trail whenever his ambitions cause
him to run for office. There had been
considerable talk that possibly Mr.
Wattles will try for the senatorial
toga ngainst Senator Btirkott but
ixjople of Omaha who have boon In
terviewed are of the op'nion ' the
istreot cur company president will not
announce his candidacy at least dur
ing the next year. Many of the busi
ness men of Omaha sympathized with
Hr. Wattles when the strike was Hrst
declared , but became somewhat Irritat
es ! as It continued and business drop
ped off , for the reason the buying pub
lic had no way to got down town and
had no way to get ilown town nnd
back. However , 'the service wns crip
pled only for n short time , the night
service having been resumed after n
week of the strike. The day service
wns never discontinued , though seri
ously Interfered with nt times.
Governor Shnllonbergor who under
the law enacted by the recent demo
cratic legislature had the right to
elect two papers In which to publish
the tinmen of the corporations which
have failed to pay their occupation
tax , has elected ono democratic nnd
ono republican paper , the Lincoln
Dally Star and the Omaha World-
Herald. This has naturally caused
somewhat of a protest from demo
cratic papers which believed they
were entitled to all Iho pie , especial
ly as the law was enacted by the
democratic legislature. The lucky
papers will receive $500 each for the
publication. The names of the de
linquent corporations fills several
pages. If they fall lo pay the tax by
November 30 , it Is the duty of the
governor to deolaro their charters

She Got Out the Paper.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , Oct. 11. The rare
pluck of Miss Gynoth Wallace , aged
.7 , of Haytl , who proved herself more
resourceful than the average man , pre
vented the Haytl Herald missing an
ssue and thus losing its standing as
i legal newspaper.
The Herald is published by O. M.
Osbon , formerly editor of the Huron
Spirit and ono of the host known news-
mper men in South Dakota. Desiring
: o bo out of town for a few days ho
secured a printer from another town ,
who promised to get out the paper
regularly. But the editor had not boon
50110 long before the printer commenc
ed drinking heavily , soon demonstrat
ing that ho was an adept at "booze-
lighting , " and the paper was left In the
lurch. Publication day arrived and
the printer yet was "dead to the
world. "
At this critical Juncture Misa Wai-
ace , who has been an apprentice in
the ollice only since last June , came
o the rescue and determined to her
self get out the paper and prevent nn
Issue being missed. She had never
md n minute's Instruction in malting
up or locking a form , but she had the
? rit to stick to her post and after
strenuous efforts which to the utmost
axed the strength of the girl , who
lees not weigh more than seventy-five
or eighty pounds , she succeeded in
jetting the paper out on tlmo.
"In more than thirty years as a pub-
Isher , " remarked Editor Osbon In dis
cussing the matter , "I never saw an
ipprentlce with no moro experience
who could have done it , and I do not
believe there is another In the state.
If the fellow who 'bilked' me was pur
posely trying to cripple the paper , the
ittlo girl beat him out. "
Speaking of Bass.
Pierce Leader : The Norfolk News
of last week brags of a bass caught by
M. D. Tyler weighing four pounds.
Lordy , lordy , Brother Huso , bring M.
D. up here and see a real fisherman.
Why , Police Judge Geo. W. LIttoll
would spurn anything wc'ighless ' less
ban six pounds ! Just last week he
irought in a six and three-quarter-
founder and throw back a half dozen
weighing in the neighborhood of four
Surelv a Live One.
Verdigre Citizen : The Norfolk
Daily News contest is certainly a live
me this year. Christie Klimeht of

Thornburg Says He Killed Rakow.
Noligh , Neb. , Oct. ' 11. Special to '
The News : The funeral services ar'l
burial of the remains of A. G. Rakow
wore hold Saturday lorcnooii.
The preliminary hearing of F. M.
Thornborg , who admits the killing of
Rakow , will bo hold a week from today -
day before County Judge Wilson. Owing -
ing to the largo amount of publicity
already given in The News cf the
tragedy , Dr. Bcattie reuises to give
out any information as to his findings
in the last examination of the murdered -
dored man in regard to the punctures
found by Undertaker Skinner on the
forearm , until after the hearing.
It Is currently reported , however ,
that a wound was found representing
what may have been caused by. a
Itnllet passing entirely through the
fleshy part of the left forearm. And
Is presumed that the murdered man
threw up his arm in protection when
the fatal shot was fired. The facts
In regard to this latter finding cannot t
bo verified until the examination of
the accused.

Tightwad Churchmen Scorched.
Lincoln , Oct. 11. The "tightwads" In '
the church came in for a scorching at '
the ' hands of Rov. Bruce Klnnoy before
the Baptist state convention. i
"Tho cold facts are , " ho said , "that
the people have plenty of money to
spend for everything except the king
dom of God. I want to toll you what
I saw out in poor , drouth-stricken west
ern Kansas. There the farmers are
so poor that they are compelled to ride
in automobiles because flying ma
chines can't bo built fast enough to J
supply the demand. Why , actually , I JI
.counted 298 nutos at ono of the rural
chautaunuas there , and I was told they
belonged to farmers in the vicinity. In
ono church of eighty-eight members
that I visited seven men owned ma
chines , and that church pave but $5
for missions during the previous year.
"Things are getting so nowadays
that many church members have to
be mesmerized or subjected to some
kind of an operation to extract money
for the various benevolences of the
denomination. "
From now on it is going to be a little -
tlo more dllllcult for foreigners to be
come naturalized in Nebraska. As
sistant Federal Attorney Lane of the
Lincoln division of the federal court
has filed several suits attacking the
validity of the naturalization of a
number of foreigners. In some in
stances he alleges foreigners have
boon naturalized who have not boon
in the country five years and In other
cases the applicants wore not 21 years
Candidates for supreme judge have
boon In Omaha a good portion of
the week mooting the voters from out
In the state who are there attending
the Ak-Sar-Bcn festivities. Judge
Barnes and Judge Fawcott on the re
publican ticket and Judge Sullivan
and Judge Good on the democratic
ticket all took advantage of the oc
casion to do a little campaigning.
No mention of Judge Sodgwick and
Judge Dean has been made by the
Omaha papers , but It is very probable
that they too , wore on hand.
Next year the democratic papers
will again have an opportunity to get
some pie , for it has boon made the of
duty of the governor to designate In
which papers the proposed constitu
tional amendments are to bo published.
Heretofore this duty has been assigned
by law to the secretary of state , but
the last legislature changed the pro
gram and gave the governor the Job.
As the governor Is democratic of
course the democratic papers will get
the business unless the governor sees
fit to divide up the spoils. To avoid
this * democratic newspaper ? ) nru nl
liberty now to lllo their names with
the governor and request the printing.
It will amount to several dollars.
Hereafter no money paid to the In
stitution by students will bo handled
by the members of the fhcully of tbo
stale university. The boanl wimu
time ago made a rule thataU money
paid by the students for boo kn or nu
fees should ho paid direct to the
treasurer of the school. Thin wau
done to nvuld oven the appearnnco of
evil , Many complaint ! ! have boon
made regarding the amount of fees
paid by students and by adopting
Iho new rule the regents bullove they
have placed the financial part of the
Institution on a bettor foundation than
It has ever had. Under the old plan
no record was kept of money paid to
the professors and the treasurer had
no detailed report of It. This has In
the past led to considerable criticism
of the professors and opened the way
for adverse comment.
The temperance people of the state
are preparing lo attend the national
meeting of the W. C. T. U. In Omaha
this month In great numbers. It Is
very probable from the date of this
meeting the temperance people will
start their fight , but just on what
grounds the campaign will bo waged
cannot be determined. In advance
Members of the W. C. T. U. for the
great majority of them are firm in
the belief that the liquor question
can bo solved only by prohibition
while others are of the opinion that
prohibition j , must come by degrees
and ; education. Those who oppose
j prohibition , as a state wide proposition
are satisfied to force that on the people
ple before the great majority favor it ,
It ( , will not result In a betterment of
conditions but the reverse. The county
option faction want merely a county
option law enacted and then prohi
bition at a later time. This question
may cause some discussion if an at
tempt is made to discuss local affairs
and pass resolutions on the matter.
Just at this time considerable interest
is being , taken in the trial of prohi
bition in Lincoln and both sides claim
to bo satisfied with the results HO fur
that Is the high license people say
there ] Is more drunkenness In Lincoln
than ever while the prohibition peo-
pie say there is loss. Six miles from
Lincoln Is Havolock and street can ,
run between the two towns and the
thirsty who cannot drink at the Lin
coln clubs go to Havolock. Lincoln
will vote on the liquor question next
spring and the result of that election
will have its effect out in the state.
