Nebraska Board Resists Ef.
fort to Secure Further
Lincoln, Nch., Jnn. _ (Special)—
The elate board of assessment and
equalization, through Its attorney,
filed answer Wednesday In federal
court to the suit brought by the
Northwestern railroad company,
which claims that the board has as
sessed it 30 per cent, more than Its
property Is w'orth. The board said It
was worlh $38,000,000 and the com
pany pills the value at $30,000,000.
B’rnnk admission Is made by ttie
state that the taxing authorities do
not and have not assessed property
at full value for years, and that while
It is true that f^rm lands and other
property are valued at about 75 per
cent, of their real worlh, the rail
roads have been equally favored. In
(the matter of the Northwestern com
pany the farmers are discriminated
against, It Is claimed, the real val'ie
of the railroad being $62,000,000.
The state takes the position that
thf suit cannot he maintained for
the rearm that the railroad waited
until after the taxes had been ex
tended upon the books of tlie various
county treasurers, when It had plenty
of opportunity to go into court before
that had been done. Asa legal prop
osition, it Is urged, this estops the
company. A similar answer, save os
to valuaticr's of properties, will b«
filed In the su^s brought by the other
Omaha. Neb., Jan, . (Special)—
Attorneys for the Richardson Drug
company of Omaha have asked the
supreme court for a rehearing In the
ease wherein the court held It liable
for damages to a painter at work' for
an Independent contractor hired to
paint its building. The company says
that If the court's decision Is allowed
to stand every person who hires a
casual worker to repair or refinish his
property will be compelled to pay
workmen’s compensation to one that
happens to get hurt. They say the
legislature never Intended to have
the law stretched that far, and that
It will work a hardship on both em

Omaha Man Intervenes Hold

Uncons titutional
Omaha, Neb., Jan.. (Special) —
E. M. Morsman, Jr., of Omaha, as a
friend of the court, has Intervened In
this suit brought by the banks of the
state, national and state, to prevent
the collection ■*if taxes on the basis of
100 per cent valuation. They claim
they should be In the Intangible class.
In spite of the stnte law to the con
Mr. Morsman says that this state
law Is contrary to the federal law,
which prohibits national batiks from
being taxed any higher than Is
moneyed capital employed In the in
vestment business. Mr. Morsman
points out that automobile loan com
panies, eastern loan companies and
brokerage houses are represented in
Nebraska In opposition to the banks,
and that there are many Individuals
loaning their own money, who are be
ing taxed on a 25 per cent basis under
the Intangible tax law.
Another point raised by hint Is that
the state law Is unconstutional be

■Washington, Jan. 16.—Five years of
prohibition of (be manufacture anf
sale of intoxicating liquors still finds
the question deep rooted in American
politics, but with the cause of law en
forcement taken up in earnest at last
by a president of the United States.
Slowly anel without ostentation the
“dry” aide has made its impression on
Calvin CooUdge so that law enforce
ment may be expected henceforth
with all the vigor that the govern
ment can command. Mr. Coolidge,
In his early days in politics, was
counted as not altogether “dry” but
whatever lie might have been be
fore. lie stands today as the only
pres dent In the last five years w'ho
has won the absolute confidence of
the ‘‘drys.” Here is a significant an
nouncement by the board of temper
ance of the Method! t Episcopal
:h’.r "h:
''The vigorous and intelligent action
of Attorney General Stone in New
Terser, together with the quite evi
.■1011' personal interest of the presi
ient of the United States in the
problem of law enforcement clcarlj
heralds the dawn of a new day. Tto
erennt official ? will be ‘put down.'
Faithful .nen will be elevated. Crim
inal rebellion will be crushed. 'The
prohibition law wil be enforced.”
“Dry” Jubilant
For several weeks there have been
whisperings that Mr. Coolidge had
taken the prohibition problem into his
own hands and was watching en
forcement very closely. The “drys"
have been Jubilant. They claim to
have been harrassed and obstructed
it every turn by subordinate officials
ind that the president’s recognition
of the situation is a moral victory
for the cause of enforcement.
Mr. Coolidge lias had relatively
little to say about prohibition since
he took office. He is represented,
however, as viewing the matter from
the viewpoint of law and order. An
amendment forbidding the manu
| faeture and sale of intoxicants is a
part of the constitution; a law has
been passed providing penalties for
violation and there is nothing for an
honest and sincere public official to
In but to enforce the law.
Rome of the felling expressed by
I he “drys” (hat they have not been
given co-operation by the government
Is dve to tlie presence in high ad
ministration quarters of pronounced
f ‘wets.’’ The secretary of the treas
ury, Andrew Mellon, is called a "wet.”
having had large interests In a distill
ery before prohibition, lie is much |
too busy with the financial side of
the government to give personal at
tention to the work of one of his
duties—that of internal revenue which
inclu l?s the prohibition unit—and
while no one has ever proved that
he ever interfered with prohibition
enforcement, the “drys” have nevei
been satisfied and there is pending in
congren a bill to reorganize the pro
hibition unit by removing it from tht
authority of the commissioner of
Internal revenue.
The “drys” have been besieging
every president since the Eighteenth
amendment was adopted. President
Wilson was not in sympathy with the
Volstead act. in fact he vetoed it on a
technicality but plainly didn't like the
measure anyhow. Air. Harding never
served liquor at the White House
tide but took a drink regularly after
his gulf game until someone reminded
him that his act in carrying any
liquor from his own rooms in the
White House to the golf club was a
violation of the Volstead law unless
he obtained a permit. After that Air.
Harding refrained and toward the
end of his career, became a teetotaler
and made at Denver, a plea for law
enforcement which entirely satis-ied
the “drys.”
Measures Pending
There are various measures pend
ing in congress relating to law en
forcement. Most of them.look toward
the strengthening rather than the |
weakening of the Volstead act. The
Stalker bill, for instance, would pro
vide Jail sentences for first offenders.
The Johnson bill provides for de
portation of aliens convicted of vi
olating the Volstead law. It once
passed the House hut failed to be
voted on in the Senate and Is now up
again before the House.
In addition to the foregoing, the
"drys” are trying to get legislation
which shall place all beverages, al
choeollc liquors, under control of gov
ernment agencies for sale and dis
tribution and that particularly the
government should acquire all liquor
now In government bonded ware
houses. The purpose of this is said
to be legitimate distribution.
This is not all, however, for the
“drys” are urging too. that “event
ually congress should place under
the provisions of the prohibition act
all intoxicating liquors made and pos
sessed before the passage of the
Eighteenth amendement; at present
| wealfhy owners of ‘cellars’ provided
they can establish the fact or fiction
that their liquors were obtained be
fore prohibition being undisturbed by
the prohibition law.”

I walked with Love and Happiness^
Along a sunlit way.
And oh! my feet trod lightly!
And oh! my heart was gay!
But suddenly, I tripped and fell,
And when I raised my head,
And reached my hand for help, both
And Happiness had fled.
Then lay I in the dust of earth,
And wept, and prayed to die,
While clouds of storm and darkness
Obscured the once clear sky.
Then Duty came, with stern demand,
“Arise! You must go on;
You must not fail because your
Of fairer days are gone.”
And so I rose, and gave my hand
To Duly, while the storm
Released its gathered fury on
Dy bowed and shrinking form.
At times I scarce could see. but e’er
Felt Duty’s strong, strong clasp,
I stumbled oft, but aye was kept
From falling, by his grasp.
And presently I, too, grew strong,
strong that I could tread
■ilje dark way bravely, and could
The storm with lifted head.
The storm ceased, and on Duty's face
Which had seemed harsh to me.
There glowed a light that never
On land, or on the sea.
And love and Happiness came back,
Forgiveness to implore,
To ask that they might go with me,
To serve me evermore.

The young are nearly always
somewhat bolshevistic because they

Women should never believe a man
unless they have other evidence than
his gallantry, his compliments, or

a man’s word is frequently as good
as his bond; It never Is with women.
