(From a Stuff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Neb.. Nov. 21. (Special.)
Assistant Attorney" General Frank K.
Bdgerton will contribute" an affidavit In
the infantolde case against 'Louis Rogers
of Dodge county to support the theory of
the state that a handgrip belonging to
the mother of the dead baby has been
tampered with since the trial, resulting In
Rogers' conviction.
At the trial at Fremont the defense
claimed that the child .had been born In
Omaha' and. had boen carried by the"
mother, to Fremont in the grip. At the
trial the prosecution asserted the child
had been killed by Rogers and placed In
a box car, where It was found.
The assistant attorney general's5 affi
davit set out that when the grip was
brought to the supreme court In July he
was Impressed by the opinion that the
blood stains upon It were fresh and that
(he wrote this to County Attorney Cook
of Dodge county and received an answer
that at the time of the. trial there were
no such stains on the grip.
County Attorney Cook declares that the
grip was without stains at the -time of
th trial' and he alleges that thoy were
smeared on afterward. The supreme
court will shortly listen to a motion mada
by the county attorney asking for an In
quiry In this matter.

Won 111 Keep Money at Home.
Secretary W. R. Mellor of tho state
fair board Is against the proposition of
appropriating $Sii,000 for a Nebraska ex
hibit at the Panama-Pacific world's fair
at aSn Francisco. He believes that the
Nebraska stato fa'.r offers a better, more
effective and more permanent advertis
ing medium for the stato than tho big
coast shov.'.
"The same amount of money expended
p nthe state fair grounds here would
bring far greater results than tho same
amount spor.t at tho San Francisco fair,"
he raid. "We should lake care of our
home affairs first. If the state will spend
this amount of money on the state fair
grounds here, mote people will hco It than

To Inspect Nursery Htock.
Action towa.d securing a law, whereby
nursery stock shipped Into Nebraska
from other Htates and from foreign coun
tries, will be required, to pasH Inspection,
was taken Wednesday evening at a meet
ing of the board of directors of tho
State Horticultural society. A committee
consisting of C. H. Barnard of Tabls
Rock, Peter Younger of Geneva and O.
A. Marshall of Arlington, was appointed
to draft tho bill.
The system of Inspection propped will
be optional with the nurseryman shipping
out of Nebraska. Inasmuch as othsr
states have a similar law,, It is thought
that Nebraska nursery men will prefer
to have their stock approved hre before
It crosses the state line.
State-Wide Crusade
Against Cigarette
Sales to Boys Begun
HASTINGS, Neb., Nov. 21-(Specia!.)
Prosocuttons begun here against local
tobacco deAlers are announced by Men's
Forward. Movement workers, to be the
forerunner of a statewide crusade against
the Illegal sale of clgarattes and of to
bacco to boys under 18 years of age.
Four suits were stated In the county
court and two have been disposed of,
the defendants pleading guilty and paying
fines of MO and 1160. The other two
cases were continued. All four were
based on charges of Illegal sole of
clgarattes to detectives employed by a
sub-committee of the Men's Forward
movement. Other prosecutions are.
"Tho tobacco- laws have been generally
disregarded over the state," said U. S,
Rohrer. who assisted In getting the evi
dence here. "The local .committee con
sidered the advisability of asking for a
grand Jury to Investigate tho tobaooo
traffic, but we finally concluded to get
our own evidence. Until we started the
suits to enforce the antl-clgaratte law
we found It" impossible to get evldenoe
of the sale of tobacco to boys under 18
years of age, but now that these oases
are under way a number of boys have
offered to give evidence of violation of
tho othef law.
"The prosecutions here are part of a
statewide undertaking, backed by the
Men's Forward Movement It won't be
long until the open sale of clgarattes and
the sal of tobacco to boys are stopped
all over the state."
It Is Intimated that evidence Is already
being secured in a number of cities.
The antl-clgarctte law makes manufac
turing, selling or giving away cigarettes
or permitting clgareete papers to be takph
away a misdemeanor, punishable by a
fine of $00. It applies to dealers and
non-dealers alike. The other tobacco law,
which the crusaders threaten to enforce
makes It a misdemeanor to sell or give
to any boy under 18 years of age, to
bacco in any form whatever.
