THE TRADING STAMP WAR
The substance of the 4th "argument" offered by the Retail Grocer's As
eocletlon a to why GREEN TRADING STAMPS are an evil. In: "That TRAD
ING BTAMPS ara making millionaire out of achemere; and that tha money
(a corning out of the Foolish People, who pay lc mora on tha doMar for gooda
to get Trading; "tampa; that they collect 1.000 atamps at a cost of about flO.Ot
to. themselves, In return for which they get something worth about $175.
Now, dear brother, at one time you say that Trading Stamps are a tax
upon the merchant. In thla argument" No. 4, you switch and aay that It
cornea out of tha Foolish People. The more you try to down Trading Stamps
the leaa luck attenda you.
You say that the Trading Stamps are taking a half million dollars out
of Ban Francisco a year. Ban Francisco muat be much more wide awake
than Omaha, but we think you are ridiculously off tn your statement all tha
same. Men hare become million airea by means ef a much leas worthy side
walk than Trading Btampa. '
However, we have proved conclusively that the Foolish People, as you
choose to call them, do not pay 10c more on the dollar on gooda at Bennett's.
Now, you know this Is so; you know that It has paid you and your kind to
watch Dennett's ads, and overstock your little storae with Bennett bargains
Tou didn't do thla because you wanted to swell Bennett's sales, but because
you wanted to play the dear people for more profit with goods you bought of
us cheaper than you could buy from your Jobber. We have proven again and
attain that the Btampa coat the customer nothing; that It's because of our
cash discounts on our cash purchases, and selling for each and having no loaa
on account of errors (bad debts), that we can afford to give Trading Btampa
whether you can or not.
Your Inability or unwillingness to give your customer what they can get
at Bennett's la your own affair. We haven't a word to aay aa to how you
ahouJd run your business.
If you will come, any of you, to the Trading Stamp Parlor on our aecond
floor, or visit the Parlor at 210 N. ltth street and ask the attendant to show
you any BIN'JLE BOOK premium, and If you don't admit that It's worth
FIVH TO BEVEN COLLARS of anybody's money, you are hot worth any
reasonable man'e attention. No, air, you have not yet proven your oaea, and so
It will ba GREEN TRADING BTAMPB WITH ALL PURCHASES IN ALL DE
PARTMENTS ALL THE TIME AT BENNETTS.

LINCOLN. Jan. . (Speclal.V-All of
todav'e aesslnn of the supreme court was
taken up by attorneys In arguing the Lu
lls murder rase. Interest In this over
shadows any case that has been tried In
the court In recent years, with the ex
ception of the revenue case. Mrs. Llllle
was convicted on the charge of murdering
her husband at David City on October 14.
A new trial was denied her, and she ap
pealed to the supreme court. She was
given a life sentence, but still remains
in the jail of Butler county.
Two pictures of Mrs. Llllle were rre-
senfed to the court. The eloquent attor
neys for the defense drew her aa a loving
and devoted wife, who could not, by any
stretch of the Imagination, have been gu'lty
of the crime laid at her door. The repre
sentatives of the atate pictured her aa a
woman, mad with the lust for money,
driver! to desperate deeds by speculation
on the board of trade. Each aide quoted
from the testimony to prove Its drawing
was correct.
On behalf of the atate It was Insisted
that the evidence leaves no other possible
hypothesis than that ahe waa guilty. It
was pointed out that notwithstanding her
husband was In receipt of a good salary,
Mrs. LUlle loved money so well that ahe
set np a dressmaking establishment In her
own home, from which she made about ISO
a month. Unknown to her husband she
began speculating with the money aha had
made and aaved In business, and up to
August 7, 1903, had been auccessful. Than
came a turn In her luck and between that
time and October 24, when Harvey Llllle
was assassinated, ahe dropped. $1,025. The
state's theory Is that the desire for more
money caused her to commit the deed.
knowing that Llllle carried Insurance
amounting to $8,000 on his life.
The defense Insists that the verdict of
guilty Is not supported by the evidence,
and that there were most grievous errors
committed by the court In Its Instructions
and In admitting In evidence that la not
proper and which waa highly prejudicial
Mrs. Llllle and her friends are leaving
no stone unturned to secure a reversal.
Two new attorneys appear in the
case now, who were not of counael
when the defendant waa tried. These are
Judge Hamer and ex-Senator W. V. Allen.
When the case waa called this morning
the court room was well filled. Prominent
among the spectators were Mr. and Mrs.
Hill, the parents of Mrs. Llllle. The court
announced that It would give each side two
and a half hours
. Cblrken Ikow Safe.
The various conventions of the agricultur
ists are atlll on and the Interest la still all
that could be desired. The people of Lin
coln who feared that the chicken show
might be lost to them were assured this
morning by the ecretary of the Commer
cial club that no such calamity would hap
pen, as the club owns a lot upon which It
la willing to erect a suitable building for
the use of the chickens if the management
will bring the show back next year. -State

A meeting of much Importance this morn
ing was that of the State Fair board. W.

having defeated the old president, . J. B
Dinamora cf Sutton, at the meeting held

When the morning session opened H. L.
Cook of ths committee to consider reports
of the secretary and other officers sub
mitted a report containing recommenda
tions. One was that a limit be p'sced on
the number of stables or pens assigned to
an exhibitor of live stock.
' Salary of Secretary.
"In the matter of a readjustment of the
salaries paid officers of the board," said the
report, "your committee finds a consider'
able difference of opinion as to the amount
to be paid, under the rules of the board for
the support of the office of secretary.
"Tour committee recommends that the
salaries paid the various officers of the
board remain as at present, it being under
stood that the salary of (2,000 paid the sec
retary is in full of all compensation for
services and clerical help necessary for the
support of ssld office other than extra
clerks needed Immediately . preceding and
during the fair and In tha folding and mall
Ing of advertising matter connected with
the fair.
"In view of differences of opinion as to
amount te be paid aa salaries your com
mittee begs to suggest that article II ef the
bylaws be amended so as to provide that
warrants drawn for the payment of fixed
salaries or for appropriations made by the
J state board while in session shall be on
vouchers approved by eitner ine presiaeni
or the chairman of the board of managers.
The recommendation Id reference to the
compensation of Secretary Furnas precipi
tated considerable discussion. The weight
of sentiment seemed to be that he should
not be made to stand the expense for clerk
help out of his $2,000, and the report waa
amended to allow the expenditure, in the
discretion of the board, of 6u0 a year for
extra help for the secretary's omce.
A report of the auditing committee was
to the effect that the financial reports were
after some slight correction, all right.
A resolution was adopted directing the
appointment of a committee to draft a
measure for enactment at the next legts.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Jan. 30. (Special Telegram.)
The story of opium being smuggled Into
the penitentiary as tcld by an ex-convlct
and published in The Bee some montha ago,
was again started thla morning, when it
waa reported to Governor Mickey that a
former convict haa made affidavit to the
effect that prisoners wore getting the drug
through their friends on the outside, who
worked the amuggllng through some of the
guards.
At the time of publication the matter was
thoroughly Investigated, and while It was
found that the convicts were getting the
opium no evidence waa found that would
warrant the charge that Warden Beemer
or hia employes ware Implicated. The war
den discovered several clever schemes that
were used by the prisoners and their friends
on the outside and reported to Governor
Mickey, who ordered a strict watch kept
snd a thorough Investigation made. The
governor stated this morning that he be
lieved the smuggling bad all been stopped
and that the prisoners were not now recelv

FREMONT, Neb., Jan. .-(8peclal.)
The twenty-second annual convention of
the Nebraska State Volunteer Flremen'a
association met at the district court room
at I o'clock Inst evening. Every train
yesterday brought a goodly number of
visitors, most of them coming on Ihe aft
ernoon trains on the Northwestern. They
were met at the depot by a reception com
mittee and taken to the city hall in a
large hose wagon, labelled police patrol,
nd were In charge of A. C. Hull and Chief
Mortenson. According to the usual cus
tom at the flremans gathering, swapping
badges began aa soon as the visitors
reached town, and today a majority of the
vleltora are wearing bunches of from fifty
to one hundred ribbon hedges, fastened
to their coats on large safety pins. Many
of the badges are unique and the demand
exceeded the supply.
President C. K. Hartford of Norfolk called
the meeting to order laat evening and In
troduced Mayor Wola, who extended to the
visitors tha freedom of the city. Mr. Hart
ford responded and short speeches were
msde by a number of the "old timers" and
received with applause.
The chairman appointed the following
committee on credentials: A. C. Hull, Fre
mont; W. A. Kern, Norfolk; W. D. Moore.
Beatrice, and -George Springer ot North
Bend.
When President Hartford called the con
vention to order thla morning the attend
ance was much larger than last night, a
good many delegations having arrived en
the early trains. The committee on cre
dentials submitted Its report, which waa
accepted and the committee waa continued,
as there were still delegates on the way.
About aoo representatives of the volunteer
fire companies were present. The reading
of the mlnutea of the prevloua meeting
were dlapenaed with and the printed pro
ceedlnga approved. Vacanclea . on the
atandlng committees were filled by ap
pointment for the session. The convention
then listened to a report by J. L. Schleck
of Beatrice, the delegate from the Ne
braska association to the National Fire
men's association, which met at Chicago
In September laat. Accompanying the re
port waa a paper read at the national as
sociation upon the necessity of a federated
fire service organisation throughout tha
country and the benefits to be deflved
from such an organisation.
President Makea Report.
President Hartford then called Vice Pres
ident Bauer to the chair and read bta an-
ual report. He said he had visited a num
ber of towns, especially In the northern
part of the state, whose fire depsrtments
were not represented in the atate associa
tion, and he found In many of them the
firemen were not receiving tha privileges
to which they were entitled by the laws of
the state. Secretary Miller then read his
report, which was an outline of the bus!
ness transacted since the laat session anil
of the results of the tournament held at
Norfolk last summer. The report of the
treasurer waa also submitted and the as
sociation was found to be in a satisfactory
financial condition.
This afternoon the. delegates te the con
vention met at the court house and were
photographed. A snow storm and cold
northwest Wind made thla a rather un
pleaXant feature. The convention then.
headed by the Wahoo band, Chief Morten
son of Fremont and Messra. Clelland and
A. C. Hull, were ahown tha various points
of Interest about the ctly. It was a cold
trip, but tha boys -turned up their coat
collars and faced the wind with alacrity.
After this trip a business session waa held
in the district court room.
Much intereat centers in the election of
officers, which will come up tomorrow.
First Vice President M. Bauer of Nebraska
City la In line for promotion and will prob
ably aucceed Mr. Hartford. Grand Island
