Latest IVlio will Answer to the
Chnrgo of Selling and
Tho determination to stamp out as
Jar as possible tho illegal galo of In
toxicating liquors is stronger today
than it as been any thno since North
Platto wont dry. This desire has boon
accentuated by an ovont of the past
week, and tho fellow who I dealing in
tho stuff will need uso more tare than
ho has heretofore or olso he certainly
will net into the meshes of tho law.
That -liquor is being unlawfully sold
in rather liberal quantities must bo
admitted, but a a rulo It is impossible
to get tho buyer to tell of whom he
purchased It, and also the Bellor Knows ,
his man boforo ho sells It to hlm.
However, not only the ponce, out
citizens who are well known in busi
ness circles, are determined that a3
many as possible of these violators
shall bd forretcd out.
"Wednesday afternoon Elmer Chnso
was arrested for having liquor on 'his
person, and it was charged that ho ob
tained it from a boot-legger. Ho was
arraigned in tho county court yester
day, pleaded not guilty and tho hear
Intr will bo hold in a few days.
Tho same afternoon Bert Boyer, who 5
has been under suspicion for some
time, was arrested for selling liquor
to Elmor and Hugo Case. This hear
ing will also come up in tho county
court in a short time.
Pending the hearing, both Chaso and
Boyer are in Jail.
Tho lower house of tha Nebraska
legislature went on record Wednesday
as favoring tho sale of millions
of acres of school lands In tho western
part of this state. No action has yet
been taken by tho senate. The sale of
theso lands wpuld not' only put thous
ands of dollars Into tho school funds,
but would result in placing the lands,
when sold, on tho ossesmcnt rolls, and
thus become producers of money for
tho counties in whch they are located.
