Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 'z. (Special to
The News). The desire of the
people for a reform of the pres
ent at.d old-time method of as
sessment for taxation is apparent
from the number of bills introduced to
correct this wrong, I think it safe to
say that twenty bills are on the files
of the two houses covering1 this sub
ject in some form or other. One of
these, which struck me as peculiar
and, perhaps, radical, is that which,
compels the. holders of all forms of se
curities to fite such instruments with
' the county c erks. whfcVe they shall
be taxed by the county commissioners,
and providing that no intrument
shall bo collectable which is not so
Hied Tor taxation. That such a meas
ure would result in largely increasing
the amount of personal property tax
is apparent on its face. Other bills
propose that properly shall be assessed
at its real cash value, and make it u
penal offense not to oo so. What will
be done is, of course, problematic.
The proposed Lincoln charter is,
next to the Omaha charier, the big
gest bill yet iutroduced. It is an anti
monopoly measure, and likely to pass.
It reduces the number of councilmen
from fourteen to 5ve,and gives the cily
the right to buy out the street railways,
the gas and electric light companies,
or to annul their charters on certain
conditions. It covers the ground of
local government very completely, but
is opposed, of course, by all the ele
ments that have ruled in this city for
Not many bills have as yet passed
both houses, but much work has been
done by the committees, and the pass
ing of bills will come faster later on.
Whatever else may be said of this
legislature, no '-oil' rooms have as
yet been opened in any of the commit
tee rooms, and thus far the atmos
phere has not been tinctured with
boodlism. Later on when the bills
affecting the stock yards at South
Omaha, the insurance preserves, the
express and telephone companies,
came up for consideration, no doubt a
lobby will appear how affectively
,' time will telL; In general both bodies
seem lobe made up of men who are
untrammeled and near nobody's collar.
They will doubtless make mistakes,
but they will not be serious ones.
When you know that a man is true at
heart and honest you can forgive his
errows of judgment, but if he is rotten
at heart you despise hini no mat
ter how smart he is. C. W. S.
THE STULL WILL CONTEST.

A special to the State Journal from
Auburn says: "District court con
vened last evening at 7:30 for the
trial ol the Stull will case. Judge
Ramsey of Plattsmouth presiding. A
jury was empanelled and the opening
statement on behalf of contestants
and then court adjourned to 9 a. m.
today. Contestant William Stull of
Lincoln is represented by W. S. Sum

and A. J. Burnham of this city. Pro
ponent Judge John S. Stuil is repre
sented by W. H. Kelliger and G. W.
Cornell of this city, and Judge E. W.
Thomas of Falls City. Attorneys for
both parties say it will take all week
to try the case. Tnere are 1,000 pages
of depositions to be read, most of
which are those of parties at the old
home in Illinois. The case promises
to be one of the hottest contests ever
had in this county."
Meeting of the Aid Society.
The ladies of the Presbyterian Aid
society were entertained by Mrs. John
Waterman at her home yesterday af
ternoon. This being the first business
meeting of the year, the election of
officers for the ensuing year was held,
which resulted as follows:
President Mrs. J. II. Waterman.
First Vice-Pres Mrs. J. T. Baird.
. Second Vice-Pres Mrs. F. E.White.
Secretary Mrs. Aenew.
Tucasurer Mm. P. E. RutTner.
After the business meeting was over.
an hour of social was en joyed, followed
by the serving of dainty refreshments
by the hostess. The society adjourned
to meet in two weeks with Mrs. David
Loudin's Jubilee Singer.
A large and appreciative audience
gathered at the Presbyterian church
last evening to hear the Fisk Jubilee
Singers. The concert was an artistic
success in every particular. Tho part

Loudin was in good voice, and the
audience testified their appreciation
by numerous encores. The trio "Lift

LETTER FROM THE NORTHWEST.
A Former Cass County Lady Telia About
the Home of the Blizard.
To the Editor of Thb News:
Inkster, N. I)., Jan. 29. The
Semi-Weekly News-Heuald from
Plattsmouth reached me last evening
and was read with eager interest, as
it always is being as a visitor from
the old home state telling me of its
welfare, its prosperity, the well-being
of its inhabitants and lastly its severe
ly cold weather with the ice on the
river ten inches thick and the men
with teams rushing out before 6'o'clock
in the morning with might and main
to gather in tho crystal cubes and
store them away in the ice houses ere
the sua'should beam out as it does in
Nebraska and reduce them to water
I wish I might tell you of a winter
in good earnest one that settled down
to business the latter part of October
with a sleet first, then wet snow which
seemed to freeze fast to the ground
and make good sleighing. The sleighs
were running merrily in the streets of
Grand Forks on the last day of Oc
tober. Then the Red river began
freezing over. I stood by the window
and watched what seemed to be little
circles of ice and snow eddying round
in the current getting larger and
larger and collecting in masses till at
last the river was entirely bridged
over, the weather becoming colder all
the time and the snow continued fall
ing until the whole surface was cov
ered ana all the country white the
cleanest, whitest snow I ever saw.
The ice men predicted an early har
vest of ice, but the heavy fall of snow
weighed the ice down so the water
rose over it and made snow-ice which
is not good. The only way out of the
difficulty was to clear away the snow,
cut out the snow-ice and make a clear
field and leave it to freeze over again.
In this way they get a good quality,
but the labor is more than double.
The first cutting was a little more
than two feet thick and very hard to
handle, but they take their time.
There is no danger of a thaw. We
have bright, pleasant days, but none
warm enough to spoil the ice. Ne
braska people could never imagine
the depth of snow hero. In Meinto,
Walsh county, the artist has made
photographs of several snow scenes.
One lady was photographed on top of
a drift thirty-five feet high, and some
men had their pictures taken sitting
on the cross pieces on top of the tele
graph poles with their feet resting on
the drifted snnw. . ...
In some places the stab'es are
drifted under. One man had to dig a
hole through the drift to get into his
stable, and some houses, can onl3r be
entered through the second story win
dows. At Christmas time the weather
was quite pleasant, but throughout
this month we have had a succession
of storms or blizzards with intense
cold the thermometer sometimes
reaching thirty-eight to forty degrees
below zero. At such times men
wanted mittens for their noses.
Tobogganing is good. People go
up on top of tiie stable ana suae
down, and it is lot of tun. 1 wish to
say, though, that this is an exception
ally stormy winter the worst for
years. I have been in Dakota nine
teen years, and but one other winter
has been as bad as this. Still people
come here and stay, and thoe who
do go away, come back and invari
ably say Dakota is good enough and
they are glad to get back. Why I
can never tell you. For my own part
I often think a less vigorous climate
would be more agreeable, but I might
be like the rest were I to make a
Miss. Maggie Hawkins Jones.
Air. Bryan Fndecided.
W. J. Bryan is down on the coast
near Galveston, Tex. , engaged in hunt
ing in company with ex-Governor
Hogg. In an interview he said: "I
will probably lecture in Galvesten be
fore leaving the state, and from there
I wfll go directly to my home in Lin
coln, Neb. I do not know in just what
manner my public work will be car
ried on, but so far I have refused sev
eral good offers, which would, had 1
accepted them, have interfered with
my public education of the people on
the silver question. I have received
one offer of $3,000 per annum from a
legal firm, and another offer of $25,000
per annum from a certain newspaper
to become a member of its editorial
staff. I refused both offers, for the
reason that I do not want to give up
my work. I have been criticised by
my friends for entering the lecturing
field. Their criticism, however, is
unjust, as I have been no more taking
advantage of my notoriety in deliver
ing lectures than I would be were I
to engage in the practice of law, or to
engage in any other vocation. I must
do something to make a living, and.
having cancelled my present lecturing
contract, I am not ready to state,
until I reach Lincoln, just what my
plans are. :'

SUCH IS THE GREAT RIO GRANDE.'
WITH ITS VAGARIES.
It la a River of Freakish Habits and
Mast He Seen More Than Once to Be Un

but at Times There la a Torrent on Top.
"It's a river 1,500 miles long, meas
ured iu its windings," said the man
from New Mexico, speaking of the Rio
Grande. "For a few utiles, at its mouth,
light draft Kteainers run up from the
gulf of Mexico. Above that it doesn't
float a craft except at ferries. Iu the old
days, when New Mexico was a province
of Spain, the people along the river
didn't even have ferryboats, and the
only way they had of getting across was
by fording. For this purpose a special
breed of large horses was reared to bo
kept at the fords. When the river was
too high for these horses to wade across,
travelers campxl on the bank and wait
ed for the waters to subside. Now there
are bridges over the river at the larger
Rio Grande towns, and in other places
rope femes and rowboats are the means

would be apt to think slightingly of the
Rio Bravo del Norte, as tho- New Mexi
cans love to call the great river. Mean
dering in a small part of a very wide
channel he would see only a little muddy
stream, for ordinarily nine-tenths of the
Rio Grande is underground, the water
soaking along toward the gulf through
the sands beneath its channel. The val
ley, bounded everywhere to left and
right by mountains or foothills, is sandy,
and the water, percolating the gauds
down to hard pan, spreads out on each
side so that it may always be found
anywhere in the valley by digging down
to the level of the river's surface. For
the greater part of the year the river
above ground flows swift and muddy,
narrowing as it swirls round a sand bar
and widening over shallows. But the
thing that strikes the stranger most
queer ly is its disappearance altogether
for reaches, many miles in length, of
its channel, whicli, except, it may be,
for a water hole here and there, is as
dry as Sahara. The river is keeping
right along about its bniuss, however,
and where a rock reef or clay bed Mocks
its subterranean current it emerges to
the surface and takes a fresh start above
ground, running as a big stream which,
farther down, may lose itself in the
"It is when the floods come down
that the Rio Grande shows why it re
quires so big a channel for its all th
year round uso and demonstrates that
if the waterway were even wider it
would be an advantage to residents
along its banks. It is fed by a watershed
of vast area and steep descent, which
in times of rain and melting snows pr
cipitates the waters rapidly into the
channel. In June, when the snow melts
on the peaks about its headwaters in
Colorado and northern New Mexico, and
later in the summer, when heavy show
ers and cloudbursts are the order of the
day, the Rio Grande overflows irs banks,
deluging wide tracts of valley and some
times carving a new channel for itself,
changing it3 course for miles. Where
the valley is unusually wide and sandy,
as below Lsleta and in the Mcrilla val
ley, the old channels iu whicli the river
used to flow are plainly indicated in the
"No one who has peon the great river
in flood is likely to forget the positive
ferocity it eeems to display as its waters
sweep all before them, and woe to the
man or beast who is overtaken by them!
The flood arrives without warning. The
sky may be clear above when the travel

Many a man and whole wagon trains

and, buried in sands or cast away on

"The great river has its pleasing and
romantic aspect, so fascinating that it is
a saying am. ng people who live in its
valley that 'whosoever drinks of its wa
ters and departs will come agaiu to seek
them. Like the Nile, the Rio Grande
enriches the soil of its valley to the
point of inexhaustible fertility. Along
its banks in New Mexico are fields that
for two centuries have been cultivated
yearly, yielding great crops, and they
are as productive today as when they
first were tilled Irrigating canals, call
ed acequias madras (mother ditches),
convey water from the river to be dis
tributed through little gates to the fields
of the valley, which it both waters and
enriches. A trip along the river reveals
a succession of pictures of a primitive
civilization of the old Spanish-American
type. Adobe villages, with small, flat
roofed houses built aliout antique
churches, and the spacious houses of the
vicos, or great men; orchards, vineyards,
wheatfields and grazing cattle are all
features of the scenery of the Rio
Grande, the American Nile." New
The fortifications of Sevastapol, which
caused the allies so much trouble during
the six months defense of the fortress
by the Russians, were at first very
weak, and military experts say the town
might have been taken by a vigorous
bombardment and assault during the
first few days of the siege. The igno
rance of the allied generals in regard to
the strength of the works caused a delay
which the Russians improved by making
the defenses almost impregnable.
Ladies' Clubs In London.
The rise of ladies' clubs in- England
is a fact that the social historian can
not afford to overlook; for it is a. sign
of the times. The division of labor
between the two sexes is no longer
summed up by Kingsley's line, "Men
must work, and women must weep,"
since women work, too, nowadays, and
hence have less time and occasion for
weeping. Then -the old-fashioned
pleading, "Poor dear! he ' works so
hard all day, he must have some
amusement in the evening,? is gradu
ally disappearing before the concious
ness that women too have arJght to a
little fun when their day ' work is
over. So the British matron' and the
English girl have started clubs for
themselves; and London vis growing
full of them. Far be it fron'me, how
ever, to suggest that fun and frivolity
are the keynotes of these institutions.
They have various aims to vari
ous needs; and as the modern English
woman is inclined, on the whole, to be
serious. 6he is apt to combino an aim
and a mission with her amusement.
As a result, many of the ladies' clubs
have what might be described as an
