construction, containing those particular
features which make it the best Kange ever offered to the U3er. The
firebox is so constructed that the heat will radiate into the oven at the
same moment a fire is started. Consequently, soon as the fire has at
tained the Necessary 250 degrees of heat, the oven also will register the
same temperature; therefore, it is ready to bake. The results of this
direct action will have a telling effect on the coal pile, saving nearly
half the fuel used in ordinary stoves. The fire back lining is guaranteed
for 5 years use.'; The front section of the top can be suspended, making
u convenient place for broiling or toasting. A special cover or lid'on top
is arranged for cooking oat meal, milk.rice, etc., without fear of scorch
ing. The body is made up of three distinct walls, which retain all heat
into the stove. If you will call at my store and examine this Range, you
will admit th?re is no other to equal it at prices that will meet
your approval. I have some special bargains in express wagons, child
and Misses Rockers, bookcases.

In these words Governor Curry of New
Mexico asks statehood for his territory
in his annual report to the secretary of
the interior, made public today.
Governor Curry says New Mexico's
credit is excellent, that no strikes mar
the record of its industries; the laws
enacted, by its legislature are good gam
bling i3 prohibited and the "Sunday
closing" rigorously enforced. So, he
concludes. New Mexico deserves state
The governor states that the popula
tion of the territory is over 450, 000, and
that there is over $300,000,000 worth of
property in New Mexico, in addition to
its coal, timber and fertile lands.
He asks that the Carey land act be
extended to the territory and the bill
now beforo congress providing for a
Seventh judicial district for New Mexico

Trouble Between Street Car Com

Ten Cents Fares.
The troubles between the Havclock
citizens and the street railway which
ha3 been brewing for some time reached
a critical stage last night when 150 men
took possession of the tracks. A special
to the Omnha Bee by. 'phone under
date of the 22nd has the following to
say concerning the trouble:
"A telephone message from the Bur
lington railroad shop town of Havclock,

known. A party left Lincoln for the

to resentment against the street car

The railroads have already filed no

D. 'P. i entire country from the Atlantic to the

(Oregon and California shippers have
already protested against these rates
as "'unjust and unreasonable" and will
appeal to the Interstate Commerce
commission. Under'V.the recent ' su
preme court 'decision the commission
will have no power, pending a final ap-
peal to the court, to fix the rates, . but
can only hear complaints and fix a
maximum rate, where the , complaints
satisfy the commission that the rates
in existence are unjust" and unreason
able. Subject to that laborious process
of correction, the railroads are still
free to fix their own rates. As a re
sult of this condition, some of the

Cass county once more. Mr. Young was
a prominent figure in Cass county poli

came to Nebraska in the pioneer days.
He was one of the most careful and
painstaking officials the county . ever
had, and managed the county business
just as he did his own. He was not
lavish in expenditure nor niggardly
economical, but was a warm anti-saloon
mcmlcr and his vote was recorded 'nay'
