W. C. T. U. Notes
Excerpts from National President, Mrs.
Stevens' address at National coventlon;
"The high license' idea was born io Ne
braska and in Nebraska the utter fallacy
of such a law as a temperance measure has
"A brief review of Nebraska's temper
ance gains includes the 'daylight saloon
bill' lately enacted, a measure regarded by
the temperance people as a little better
than nothing, and by the liquor men as a
great hardship, inasmuch as they can sell
only thirteen hours out of twenty-four
namely, from 7 am. to 8 p.m. There are
twenty-six counties in Nebraska where
strong drink cannot be sold at any hour on
buy day, and twenty-five of these counties
have been won for prohibition during the
last two years. Forty-eight of the county
seats in Nebraska have outlawed the sa
loon, and the state capital city of Lincoln,
now more worthy of its honored name,
stands grandly among the thirteen other
state capitals which have voted out the sa
loon, "Nebraska comrades, we have come to
help you in your holy warfare, which war
fare is our own.
"Considering that about fifteen million
people now live in states which have out
lawed the sale and manufacture of strong
drink, and upwards of thirty million more
live in saloonless territory, constituting
more than half of the population of the
country, we certainly cannot be called
visipnary or unreasonable if we declare
that we now clearly behold the breaking
of the morning light of national prohibi
"The influence of the V. C. T, 0. has
been felt and recognized this year more
strongly than ever before, Ex-Ambassador
Choate, returning from n visit tp the
south, publicly stated that he had become
convinced that woman's persistent, influ
ential work was the most potent factor in
securing prohibition in the south. A close
student of this reform, writing from Texas,
says, 'Every county in which an election
has been called nnd in which the V. C, T.
U, has no organization has gone wet.' A
politician, speaking of the elfort of resub
mission in a certain prohibition state,
said, 'Resubmission will never come as
long as the Woman's Christian Temper-
Union lives and opposes it.' " The Union
"Sure Thing" Gambling
The following editorial appeared in the
Omaha Daily News soon after the raid on
the Windsor hotel gambling den by the
"If any one who reads this is ever
tempted to 'buck the tiger' in any profes
sional gambling house in this city, we ad
vise him to study the picture printed
Tuesday in this paper, showing the gambl
ing devices that were confiscated in a raid
on the Windsor hotel joint.
"In that picture is shown a roulette
wheel with an attachment by which the
operator can stop the wheel wherever he
pleases, enabling him to let the player win
or. lose as he chooses.
"Gambling on this device is not a game
of chance. It is a 'sure thing' game all
in the operator's favor. The player has
no show at all, He may be allowed to
win, but only to induce him to come again
with more money to lose.
"A faro outfit, also confiscated, is fixed
in such a way that the player is at the
mercy of the operator, too, having no
chance whatever to win,, unless the opera
tor is willing,
"Every professional gambling house is
equipped with exactly this same kind of
"The purpose of this little editorial ex
pression is not to try to analyze the un
questionably strong reasons which impel
our police authorities to allow these rob
bing games to run.
"We only intend to call the attention to
the fact that the outsider has no chance in
any professional gambling games that may
be run in Omaha."
Time at the North Pole
At the north pole time is nothing,
and if one were residing at the north
pole it would be unnecessary to wind
one's watch. You are always at 12
o'clock and can't walk out of the hotel
without walking south. All times of
day meet at the pole, as the meeting
place oi all the meridians. A man sit
ting with the iuvisible mathematical
point right under him would be in all
24 hours at once. Or a 24. hour watch
placed on the pole could he made to
point to the correct time in every part
of the world. There used to be some,
thing of an approximation to this in the
extreme north of Norway, where the
degrees of longitude squeeze in, until
recent days. Captains of Norwegian
coasting schooners will tell you how
inconvenieut it was to change between
the time of Holland at Bergen and
that of Crete at the North Cape, while
correct local time was maintained.
General Norwegian time became indis
pensible. London Chronicle.
Tribute Paid to Memory
of Governor Johnson
From Omaha Dally nee:
Tribute to the memory of John A.
Johuson, late democratic governor 0
Minnesota, wae paid by President Taft,
Governor Hughes of this state, bv
Charles A. Towne, former United
States senator from Minnesota, and
others at a memorial meeting held Sun
day at the Broadwater tabernacle here
under the auspices of the American
Governor Hughes was the principal
speaker. Mr. Taft's tribute came in
the form of n letter, regretting his ina
bility to attend. Mr. Towne, an inti
mate friend of the late governor, eu
logized him as a man and statesman,
"who was destined to become the candi
date of one of the great parties for the
highest office in the gift of the people
President Taft's letter said in part:
"I knew Governor Johnson, valued
him highly as a friend and regarded
his promotion to the governorship of a
great state and to national prominence
as a statesman and citizen as one of
the best evidences of the equality of
opportunity that we have in this coun
try, and of the fact that high character,
earnest endeavor and great ability and
intelligence will enable a man to raise
himself from the humblest position in
society to a leader among us."

The reasoning power of a Nebraska real

"A message from Alliance under date of
November 22 says: Mrs. Rollo Spriggins,
aged twenty-three, and son, Earl, five,
were today smothered to death by smoke
from a fire in a grocery store under their
apartments. Spriggins reached bis home
just as his wife and son were carried from
the building and was overcome. The fire
damage was small" Bridgeport News
Blade. Go away from home to learn the
news. The above item will certainly be
news to Alliance people, who knew noth
ing of the matter mentioned.
Beware of the barb wire fence fiend,
who puts the lightning rod shark in the
rear. He proposes to the farmer to
put up au eight wire fence at eight
ceuts per foot. This seems so cheap
the farmer usually signs the contract,
and when the bill comes in, which it
is sure to do, the deluded farmer finds
he has agreed to pay eight cents per
foot for each wire. When the scheme
works he has to surrender his farm in
part payment and give his note for the
balance. Hence we say, beware. Ex
press. One of the best basketball games of the
season was played at the'Chautauqua audi
torium last Friday evening. A double
header game was played, the first between
the Bridgeport high school girls and the
Scottsbluff high school girls. This game
was hotly contested for Bridgeport had
beaten us in their home game by 8 to 21.
This game, however, we won by 24 to 23.
Following this game came the Bridgeport
high school boys against our high school
team. These teams belong to the western
league and were working for the pennant.
All the life and energy possible was put
into the game and Scottsbluff won 54 to
