Tho state Is losing nothing by tho delay, all tho benefits of both laws hnvlng been secured to the people pending tho litigation, by tho prompt notion of tho attorney goncral who act ing for the commission enjoined tho rail roads from disobeying theso laws. The. commission estimates tho saving to the public thiough the operation of these two enactments up to tho present tlmo nt 115,000,000,000.

The Persistent and Judicious Use of Newspaper Advertising is the rtoad to Business Buccess, Wrecked by morphine, lcslle J. Daly, once a director of School District No. SS, Douglan county, appeared befoto Judge Sutton in tho criminal division of tho dis trict court and pleaded guilty to n chargo of grand larceny. He threw himself upon the mercy of tho court and In earnest tones his attorney, Harry O. Palmer, pleaded for another chance for him. He probably will be paroled. Judge Button took his case unl-5r advisement. Four yearn ago Daly was a prominent man In school district No. IS. Having a wife, and several children, he was deeply Interested in educational matters. He mado a campaign for n new school, wnn elected a school director and accom plished his laudable purpose. Shortly after the building of the school house Daly's father, piomincnt In South Omaha as a live stock dealer, died. Ono sou succeeded his father in tho live stock business, whtto Leslie continued on the farm. All went well until Lesllo Daly consulted a socialist who claimed to be able to cure asthma. This physician pi in scribed a remedy containing morphine. Daly found relief, but In so doing he con tracted tho morphine habit. Prom an honest, industrious husband and father he gradually turned to an Indolent and worthless 'follow. Returns tn Omnlin. A fow weeks ago Daly decided to move to St. T.ouls. Ha established his family there and returned to Omaha for sotrn household goods. An expressman was to have delivered tho goods to the North western railroad freight depot. When Dnlv callrd thnre the goods had not arrived. He picked up and carried awny a box of ohmmeters that lay on the platform. Later he sold the ohmmetars and his nrrest resulted. Daly told Judge Button ho was under the influence of morphlno when he took the ohmmeters and disposed of them anJ ho knew nothing of his actions except what was told him ofterwnrd. Officials of tho Northwestern road snld they bo Uved his Btory and had no dcslro that ho be prosecuted. County Attorney Gcorgs A. Maguey said he did not caro to press the caso against Daly. "Whllo wo think ho should be pun ished," said Mr. Palmer In closing his remarks to Judgo Sutton, "we think a Jail sentence,, would be sufficient, ond for his own sukc and that of his family wo hope ho may escape the stigma of a penitentiary term." Such Is the law of grand larceny that If sentenced at all Daly must bu sen tenced to tho penitentiary; the court can not Impose u Jail sentence, but ho can parole.
