THE BEE: OMAHA, TUESDAY, JUNE 8, 100!.
Nebraska Nebraska GOVERNOR NOT WORRYING Sayi So in Declaration in Reply to a Question. WILL LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE YIwm Railroad Valuations far tr Ara Being- Certlaed Oat to tka Vartona Coaatlee. (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, June T. (Special.) "I am ware that a lot of people are anxious to know whether I am coins to be a candidate for rovernor or for senator, but the prop osition Is not worrying me In f.he least. I hare nerer been given o plotting In poli tics or looking too far ahead, so I am Imply trying to fill the office of governor to the best of my ability and let the fu ture take care of Itself. It has been my experience that the people take care of the faithful officer, and I am willing to trust the people for my political -future. It la a long time before the next election of state officer and a senator, and I believe I can better serve the state by attending to my office than by plotting for an elec I tlon to the senate or for a second term as governor." The above In substance was the answer of Governor Shallenberger to the quns t tlon: "Are you a candidate for the senate or for governor?" The governor did not appear to be very much worked up over the announcement j of Mayor Dahlman tbat he will fight him i for the nomination, and neither did the J mention of Mr. Bryan, W. H. Thompson or Richard L Metcalfe for the senate seem i to upset him. , The governor has received a copy of ' the program to be carried out at the dol- lar dinner to be given In Kearney on tho I night of June 1.1, and he will attend. The , governor will speak on the subject, "Ne braska." He appears on the program aheal i of Mayor Dahlman. and It Is very likely, the Rovernor will announce his platform on the ll'iuor question before the mayor i pets an opportunity to tell the democrats upon v. hat grounds he expects to make his fi?ht. Hlitrc the Saloons Are At. Ii Is very probable that the saloons of Omaha ami of the remainder of the state may stay open after I o'clock until July t, without violating the I o'clock closing law. Such Is the decision of W. J. Furse, private secretary to the governor, who looked the question up today upon the receipt of a letter from North Bend, ask ing when the law went Into effect. The records of the legislature show that body adjourned April 1, and as the con stitution provides that all laws not car rying the emergency clause shall take ef fect three calendar months after the ad journment, It was supposed the laws passed by that legislature "Would go Into effect July 1 But the records of the gov ernor's office show that business was transacted by the legislature after April L and up to April 4, when It was finally adjourned. In the case wherein Governor Sheldon vetoed the appropriation for the Kearney Normal school, the court held the custom of stopping the clock by the legislature did not stop time, so Mr. Furse figures that the legislature really adjourned April 4. and therefore the laws enacted by that legislature go Into effect July 6. However, Mr. Furse did not promise that he would defend any saloon keeper who kept open after S o'clock until July nd neither would he promise to stand for the cost, should any of them be prosecuted. Lobby Report Drifting In. Two belated reports of lobbyists were received at the office of the secretary of state this morning The Capital Fire In surance company of Hastings reported 11 had paid E. J. Clements 20 to appear in opposition against H. R. 136. J. M. Mller of the Nebraska Mutual Life Insurance company of Hastings reported that he had spent J25.60 for board at the Windsor hotel in Lincoln and $11. 14 .foe railroad fare be tween Hastings and Lincoln, a total of 137.14. The reports are due In the office of the secretary within two months after the adjournment of the legislature. Kicking; on Occupation Tax. Walker Smith, corporation clerk In the offlco of the secretary of state, is getting some remarkable answers to the notices sent out regarding the levying of an oc cupation tax under the provisions of the 'law enacted last winter. From a number of small telephone com panies he has received vlgorocs kicks, one writing that the company "levies assess ments only for paying the running ex penses" of the concern. One company, which owns a hotel and an opera house, wrote in that these two establishments Nebraska Nebraska were "money losers" to the company and were started only for the purpose of the public good. It was the Idea of the writer of the letter that they should come under that exemption of the law which provided no tax should be paid by corporations not otganlsed for profit. Sixty-six corporations have paid the tax. Etpren Companies Rxreat. The express companies doing business In NVbrastta. through their attorneys, C. J. Greene and Ralph Breckinridge, haTe filed exceptions to the findings of Referee Sulli van In the case wherein the state secured an Injunction to prevent the corporations from violating the Sibley law. The com panies except to the findings of law or conclusions of the referee on the grounds that the conclusions are not based on all the facts brought out at the hearing. Croanae Memorial Services. Memorial services were held In the su preme court this afternoon for the late Lorenxo Crounse, former Judge of the supreme court and former governor of the state. Resolutions which had been pre pared by a committee composed of Byron G. Burbank, George B. Lake, E. Wakeley. O. A. Abbott and R. A. Batty, were read by Mr. Abbott and ordered spread upon the records lot the court by Chief Justice Reese. The resolutions recited the lengthy public service of Judge Crounse and gave to. him credit for the work he had done in behalf of the Judicial system of the state. Judge Reese Going; Abroad, Chief Justice Reese of the supreme court will leave tomorrow for a European trip, to be gone for at least three months. The court met this afternoon and selected Judge Barnes to be the chief Justice dur ing the absence of Judge Reese. Judge Reese will make his trip with a party of friends of Lincoln and in leaving the court room he announced that he would much prefer to remain here this summer "peg ging away with the boys," but his friends Insisted that he take the trip and he "just had to go."

Curious, what a scrap you have now and then (maybe two or three "nows" and sev eral "thens") with that old Scotchman called the "deveelish part" of your make-up. It's safe to say "you" and not miss the mark, for we all belong to the same lodge, and it seems to be a part of some great plan to try us out and see if we can thus earn the right to rule greater things. Most every day some one of the many "warriors of the enemy" comes across your pathway and puts up a scrap to see if he can rule. You must be well trained and alert or he will make you bend the knee or, perhaps, brepk a leg or permanently cripple you. There are several of these "enemies" which can be named over, but for the purpose of this article let us speak of the narcotics, the family which includes morphine, whiskey, coffee, cocaine, tea, tobacco, etc., all the same family, each member having a different degree of strength. ' Now, coffee is perhaps one of the most p'ausible and deceitful of then all. It has many friends, but coolly and cunningly knifes them, and they don't know where the blow comes from. Many and many a poor, nervous wreck with weak heart, suffers by day and Jies sleepless at inght without suspecting that his "dear old friend," Mr. Coffee, is quietly pushing him along towards the silent city. No, coffee don't hurt everyone by any manner of means, but it does pick out the highly organized individuals and wrecks them by the score. . JerhapB the victim realizes it, but has fallen time and time again in the battle and been whipped so often that he has given up and bowed the head to the chain of his master. "I simply cannot give up my coffee is the wail, and so day by day he grovels and the master stretches him a few turns tighter on the rack of suffering. 4 Make sure of one thing. Once you become conscious of the-fact that a fight is on, suffering follows steadily until you are able to rule. - Then comes the reward comfort, health and happiness for the victor. ' It is a good work to stand right up and smash away with a "mailed fist" but it's much more comfortable to whip Mr. Coffee by throwing him "right over the side of the mountain" and give his place to Postum. A steaming, fragrant cup of this famous beverage has the clear seal-brown color which changes to a rich golden under cream. Oft times remarkable changes quickly follow the victory of one's better self over a known enemy. Peaceful sleep, balanced nerves, stronger heart, and all the joy which comes after the removal of a drug and its replacement with natural food elements which old Dame Nature is only too glad to seize upon for the buildmg material so badly needed and so long denied. Well, here's best wishes to you, reader. Hope you don't get "licked" too often, it's weakening.

June ".Seven Inches of rain at Hebron and four Inches at rieasant dale today caused floods and serious dam age in and near those towns. Near Pleas antdale 200 feet of Burlington railroad track was under six feet of water and trains were stalled for ten hours. On the SIcCook division of the Rurllngton there have been two washouts of track, one be tween Strang and Invale and one west of McCook. A Burlington freight engine and four cars went into the ditch on ac count of the soft track. No one was in jured. The crops in the flood district have been washed out badly. HASTINGS. Neb., June 7. (Special.) The heaviest rainfall since March. In this county, fell last night, beginning abotit S o'clock and continuing Intermittently until about 2 this morning. In this city the precipitation measured 1.67 Inches, but in the south part of the county was much greater. Prior to last night the heaviest downpour for over two months was only slightly more than half an Inch. In the last month showers have come with sat isfactory frequency, however, and all cropa are now In excellent condition. Some late sown wheat suffered from lack of mois ture, but the percentage of damage to this crop Is insignificantly small. Corn throughout could hardly be better. TRUMBULL, Neb., June 7. (Special.) This section was visited with a two-inch rain Sunday night which, with the pre vious rains, Insures a small grain crop and gives corn a good start. Everybody Is busy plowing corn, which looks the best In years. Wheat will be a good yield. Only about 6 per cent of corn was listed In, so that the damage from wind does not amount to much In the total. BUTTE, Neb., June 7. (Special.) This town experienced a wind storm Saturday evening that came very near doing great damage. It came as a straight wind from the west and with such velocity that small trees In the street were snapped off like reeds. The wind only lasted a few min utes and was followed by a severe electric display. Seveial buildings are reported to have been demolished In the vicinity. HARVARD, Neb., June 7.-(Speclal.)- Rain began fallmg early Sunday evening, continuing at intervals during the night, the fall reported by Observer Fleming being one and one-half Inch. The rain seems to have been general over the county and Is most fully appreciated, as In many places It was badly needed. The general prospect for small grain over Clay county varies but little from the condi tion one year ago. Corn Is coming on In fine shape, and will get such a start of weeds as will make it better than last year.

June 7. (Special.) Although the grand lodge of Odd Fel lows of South Dakota, at Its annual meet ing at Deadwood last month, selected Dell Rapids as the location of a fine home for needy members, which it will erect, more than a year is likely to elapse before the actual work of constructing the $40,000 main building will commence.

As the grand lodge will not hold another meeting for about a year, the plans and specifications cannot be approved before that time, and no move toward the erection of the building will be made until this approval of the grand lodge has been secured.
