BIGGEST LAWSUIT IN HISTORY.
President Roosevelt's administration
will go down in history as having wag
ed one of the greatest legal battles in
The suit to dissolve the Standard Oil
company of New Jersey was commenced
on December 6, 1906. In all 192 wit
nesses were called by the government
and 140 by the defense. The record of
the testimony proper totals up 4,500,000
words. The exhibits, consisting of over
73,000 groupa of words and figures, adds
another ten million words. The print
ing office at Washington has been kept
busy night and day for months complet
ing the record which, when bound, will
make twenty-two printed volumes.
The maps showing the company's pipe
lines and oil fields are printed in four
colors, a procedure heretofore unknown
in legal record making. From the
printer's viewpoint, it is the greatest
case in legal history.
Arguments of both sides next April
before the full bench of the United
States circuit court sitting in St. Louis,
will further enlarge the record, and as
the case is to be given to the supreme
court of the United States, no matter
what the decision of the circuit court,
the final bulk of the record in the case
promises to be appalling.
It cannot truthfully be said that the
President has not waged a giant fight
against the greatest trust in the world.
Mr. Roosevelt has not hesitated to go
after "big game" while in public office.
He cannot, therefore, be blamed for
hunting big game, when he becomes a

A BILL ON NEPOTISM. '
What is considered the biggest
joke of the legislature so far is the
contemplated introduction of a bill
to prevent nepotism in the state j
house, state institutions and the '
judiciary. Such a bills as sure of
passage through this economical,
businesslike democratic legislature
as a freeze-up in August. j
But the obstacles in the way ; of
the passage of such a bill are insur
mountable. Take it in the house
alone and the death knell of the bill
Is already sounded. Nepotism runs
rampant through this legislature.
Here are a few of the obstacles in
the way of the enactment of the bill
into law. Henry and son, Snyder and
son, Brown and son, Bates and
daughter, and nephews and niece
and other relatives too numerous to
mention. -Omaha Bee.

Bistent with your practice and vote
against any such bill, but don't attempt
to make a speech against it, for'' the
other fellow may be laying in wait for
you with a bundle of PlattFmouth Jour
als in which you have condemned your
own practices. There is an old adage

FARM WEALTH IN 1908.
While the year 1908 brought to the
railroads, manufactories, and general
trade such depression as was inevitable
after the financial crisis of the preced
ing autumn, the twelve months follow
ing the panic were for the farmers of
the United States the most prosperous
in the history of the county. Secretary
Wilson's report of the Department of
Agriculture gives the final figures of
the size and value of the year's crops,
-and amazing figures they are. The
total value of farm products reaches
$7,778,000,000, a gain of 4 per cent
over the value of these products for
year 1907, and again of 05 per cent
over the year 1899. In this decade the
farms have produced new wealth
amounting to the staggering figure of
$30,000,000,000. Corn is still king in

TRAMPS AND THE ASHLAND
Last week we spoke of two classes of
tramps, and dealt with one class at
some length. This city is infested to a
far greater extent with that class, who
wander from place to place, begging
and pilfering as they go. Ashland, 'Ne
braska, seems to have been infested
like Plattsmouth by this worthless
horde, and the authorities of our neigh
boring city have adopted a method that
seems to be effective. We shall call it
the Ashland method, and we give it be
low and commend it to the attention of
the local authorities. Here it is:
The city authorities have devised
a method of ridding Ashland of
tramps that has proven successful
beyond all expectations. Until
about a month ago the town was
overrun with tramps, as many as
six to ten being nightly lodged in
tho local jail. It had been custom
ary to turn them loose every morn
ing, allowing them to beg from
door to door for breakfast. Now,
however, the tramps are provided
with accommodations in the jail,
which is heated, but are given no
food or water, and are not released
until the afternoon following the
night of their incarceration. They
are then marched to the citylimiti
and told to keep moving. Within
two days after this rule was put in
effect tramps gave the place a w ide
berth, and in the last three weeks
there has not been one tramp seen
in the town.

An Able Address.
Luke Wiles returned Tuesday from
Lincoln where he was in attendance at
a meeting of Ked Polled Breeders' as
sociation. On that day he made an ad
dress before the association on the sub
ject "Why I Breed Red Polls in Nc
braska," which was well received by
those in attendance. Mr. Wiles is an
extensive breeder of this species of
cattle, and is well posted on their many
good points. Since this country has
ceased to be the great beef producing
territory of the west, and is depended
upon for a large share of the dairying
products of the nation, he contends
that to keep abreast of the times it is
necessary to turn the attentoin to the
growing of dual purpose cattle-those
which may be turned into beef after 1
serving a time for dairy purposes, and
he claims that the Red Polls more fully
meet these requirements than any other
breed on the market today. One breed j
may serve better for dairying purposes ,
and another may prove more profitable
for the growing of beef, but for the ,
dual purpose necessary m tnis panic-1
ular part of the country in order to ,
secure the best returns for the labor j
expended, he is mor.t enthusiastic about
the Red Polled cattle.
