To Hotel Clerks
' (from a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN." Dec (Special.) Colonel
Philip Ackerman. state hotel com mis
sioner of Nebraska, was the headllner at
the session of the Nebraska-Iowa Hotel
Clerks' association today. Colonel Acker
man said he was proud Nebraska had a
hotel commission that was doing things
for the.ravellng public. He sympathised
with the hotel men of Iowa because they
had no commission. He paid attention to
the nine-foot bed sheet law and the deri
sion in which it was spoken of at the
time of Its passage, but now people recog
nised its worth with other laws which
had been passed In connection with better
service to the traveling public.
Other speakers this morning were J. H.
Keenan, Omaha; H. B. Summers, Ot-
tumwa, la.: Art Frost, Creston. la.; Art
W. Gird. Denver. , ' " . '

Mill Company Gets
Judgment Against
Insurance Agent
NORTH PLATTE. , Neb.. Pec. 17-In
the case of the Farmcis Alfalfa Milling
company against Harry E. Worrell, the
district Judge directed the Jury to return
verdict In favor . of the plaintiff and
gainst the defendant for 810.000 and Inter
est The plaintiff sued the defendant for
110,000 on account of the fact that the
defendant had pr6rured Insurance for that
amount upon their, alfalfa milling plant
at Herehey, Neb,,', In 1910. it was shown
that the companies vn which the Insur
anoe were placed were three Philadelphia
concerns and wcredeTunct organisations
nd had no authority to do business In
Nebraska. The law at. that time provided
that if an agent should place Insurance
In an unauthorised company and a loea
should occur and' the Insured should be
unable to collect that a Judgment could
be obtained against toe person placing
the Insurance, for the amount due on the
policy. The mill 1 was entirely destroyed

dead when the hospital was reached. The

had been Informed of th eglrl's condition,
and insisted on her being removed at
once, despite her pleadings to be allowed
to remain. Steckley says he did not want

nor his wife was at home when the am

RECRUITS IN RUSH

German Karil Raid on Coast Towm
N Greatly Stimulate the En
listments. ALLIES ARE ON THE OFFENSIVE
Attack Germans la Franco n
Beldam Being; Pbed Tea
teas Coatlaae to Advanee
West nt Warsaw.
LONDON, Dec. 1.-The German naval
raid on the east roast of England has
had the effect or stimulating recruiting
In tho British tsTes. The Incresse In the
number of men Joining the colors tolay Is
attributed almost solely th this cause.
In the western arena of the wsr, espe
cially In Flanders, the roles cf the con
tending armies would sppear toiay to
have been clearly reversed. All the le
cent official communications Issued by
both the allies and the Germans refer to
the allied offensive from Yprea to the
sea. Consequently the Germans are on
the defensive. A British squadron still
la standing oft the cosst and has alll
the attack In the vicinity of Nleuport.
but nowhere has marked progress been
noted. It may be said, nevertheless, that
the attempt of the allies to push the
Germans out of Belgium has definitely
begun and that the reaults so far rcordi-d
In Flanders have converted the German
line Into a series of tenarlouely-held posi
tions rather than a stratftht front. At
many points allied wedges have been
driven In.
Russia claims to have checked for the
moment the movement of the Austria-is
across the Carpathian passes; it contend
also that It has pushed the Germans fur
ther back toward the east Prussian fron
tier, at the northern extremity of tho
eastern front. West of Warsaw, how
ever, the Germans continue their advance.
The German press, commenting on the
situation In the west, has expressed tho
opinion that operations of Importance are
Impending In Alsaoe, where, it Is believed.
French reinforcements are being brought
up. A new French- attack from tile dl'
rectlon cf Tout also Is expected In Ber
lln. It Is added that the German guns
did considerable damage to the French
position In the Vosges, south of St. Dlv
The Increase In recruiting resulting
from -tne bombardment of east towns la
particularly marked In London, where the
rush of the applicants resembles li many
respects the scenes witnessed at the out
break of the war.
