by the natural development of the state.
The Increase In depositors as well as In the
total cash entrusted to the banks Is sign

The great addition to the number of

Elmer E. Salisbury, a drayman employed
by the Lincoln Transfer company, who re
sides at E North Tenth street, was seri
ously Injured at II o'clock this morning at
the Free Press building. Thirteenth and N
streets, while engaged In loading up the
mail preparatory to Its being hsuled to the
postofflce. The mails descend from the
third floor through a long chute on the
south side of the building, which reaches
over the street to the wsgons. This is held
by hinges and at the end is an iron weight
weighing fully 100 pounds attched by a rope.
It seems that something ws wrong with
the mechanism todsy, and when the chute
was let down over the street, the rope
broke and the Iron weight fell, hitting
Salisbury on the leg.

The P. E. O. Is still grinding away In the

debating changes In the constitution. A

i gates are stopping, is crowded. Tonight

Search for Ralph tieorate.
Relatives and the police are searching for
Ralph D. George, whom they fear has met
with foul play. Nothing has been heard of
him since Sunday evening. September 27.
at which time he filed a telegram at the
Postal telegraph office In Lincoln to be sent
to a friend In Sioux City, stating that he
was sick and Intended to stay with a sister
In this city. He left 8loux City that Sun
day morning. It Is believed, and arrived In
Lincoln the same afternoon, going direct to
the telegraph office. Previous to this he
had written his relatives here that he In
tended to visit them during Ak-Sar-Ben,
consequently his coming here In September
cannot be explained by them. None of
them saw him and the only evidence they
have that he was here Is the telegram on
file. George Is years of age, has black
hair and brown eyes, five feet and ten
Inches in height, and weighs about 153
pounds. He waa employed on the Sioux
City Journal.

The question of the competency of blood
hounds as witnesses In criminal prosecu
tions has been brought to the supreme
court of Nebraska, The case is that of
George W. Pratt of Nemaha county, con
victed of burglary and sentenced to the
penitentiary for three jeara. In his ap
peal Pratt alleges he was convicted mainly
as a result of the bloodhounds trailing him
from tbe place the burglary was com
mitted to his awn borne, where a stolen
purse was found. In his brief filed today.
the attorney general admits the contention
that the dogs are not competent to take
the oath and are not subject to cross-examination,
but tbey are a silent witness
for tbe state.

yesterday afternoon over the discovery of
tha body of an unidentified man, about
thirty-five years of age. In a vacant build

body through the windows and at onoe the
news spread over town that the body waa

Rosencrana, the Pa pillion man who so sud
denly disappeared several weeks ago. While
the different theories were being talked
over a stranger came upon the scene and
stated that the man was not dead but un
der a hypnotic spell. The stranger proved
a traveling hypnotist who had placed this
man under a spell and had laid the body In
the window of this building for exhibition
purposes. Ijist night he was brought to
and taken to the opera house, where a dem
onstration, was made of. hypnotic powers.

The report of the commute regarding the
selection of some plan for an official organ
for the state federation occasioned a re
petition of the debate on the same subject
the day before. Three recommendations
were made to publish Its own monthly or
gan; second, that a committee be appointed
to secure advertisements to Insure lis pub-
lication for the year; and third, that the
president appoint an editor of the publica
tion. As nothing definite had ben ascer
tained regarding the publishing of the
paper, the question regarding sending such
a publication through the mails arose, sev
eral of the women who have had experience
fearing trouble on this point. Its discus
sion consumed the greater part of the
morning, several authorities being pre
sented. It was finally decided that the mat
ter be referred back to the executive com
mittee and they were empowered to act
without further instruction from the house.
This closed the morning session.

man of the household economics commit
tee, presided at the household economics
