The contention made by the Daily ;
News that its contemporary, the Even-
ing Journal was carrying on a campign I
of misrepresentation as regards Sheriff
uinton, and that it was endeavoring 1
to defeat that very efficient officer by j
deceiving its readers into the belief
that the sheriff is keeping back funds
that should have been turned over to
the county, is now bein shown to be
true and it is now up to that paper to
explain to the voters what it meant by
such action and it Is also in a position
where it owes Sheriff Quinton a public
In the issue of the Journal of Wed
nesday, October 13, 1909, under a scare
head "The t'eople Want to Know.
And it is no more than Right that they
Should Know," it again seeks to mis
lead the people into the belief that
Sheriff Quinton should turn o r the
fees of his office at the end of each
quarter, and then goes on to show that
he ha3 not done so.
Section 43, Chapter 28 of Nebraska
"Each of the County officers
named in Section 1 of this Act,
(Includes Sheriff) shall on the first
Tuesday of January, April, July
and October, make a report to the
Board of County Commissioners
under oath, showing the different
items of fees received, from whom
at what time, and for what service
and the total amount of fees receiv
ed by such officer since last repoat,
and also the amount received for
the current year."
It will be seen that this section of
the law says nothing about fees being
turned in, but it does say that a report
shall be made for the current year.
The section quoted by the Journal,
and which we desire to say was quoted
right, reads as follows:
"Provided, further, That the
sheriff, shall, on the first Tuesday
in January.April, July and October
of each year, make a report to the
board of county commissioners or
supervisors under oath showing the
different items of fees except", mil
age collected or earned, from whom,
at what time and for what service,
and the total amount of fees col
lected or earned by such officer
.since the last report and alsojthe
amount collected or earned! for the
current year, and he shall then pay
all fees earned to the county treas
urer." It will be noted that this section of
the statutes reads the same as the foi
mer with the addition that it says:
"And he shall then pay all fees earned
to the county treasurer."
When shall ho paythose fees.
When he made his report .for the
If the Journal will read carefully, it
will see that it requires a report at the
end of each quarter, but says nothing
about fees being turned over, J,but it
does say that there shall be a report
made for the CURRENT YEAR and
that when he makes that report for
the current year he shall THEN', (not
every quarter,) turn in his fees to the
In others words, the sheriff sball
mike a report at the end of each quar
ter and then at the end of the year
nuke a consolidated report for the full
y.'ar past,, and then pay over the fees.
According to law, Sheriff Quinton is
Viat required to turn over the fees of
his office until he makes his report to
the board of county commissioners the
first of the year.

From the Omaha Bee it is learned
that Henry R. Franklin of Chicago was
found murdered under the viaduct on
Tenth street and just west of the Union
passenger station in that city last
night. The unfoi tunate man was found
by James C. Mitchell, a switch foreman
of the Rock Island, and Frank Williams
of Salt Lake City, a Pullman porter.
A razor was used in cutting the man's
Franklin was alive when found,
but died a few minutes later, befort kt
could be taken to the station on a
stretcher. His throat was cut on the
left side The gash was about three
and a half inches long, the jugular
vein being severed. Another cut on
the left side started on the cheek and
extended back behind the neck. It was
about two inches deep in one place.
The third cut was located high on the
left side of the neck and in the hair.
It was about three inches long. Cal
Jones, an engineer on a switch engine,
saw two men run from near the spot,
where the man was found, at about
the time the murder is supposed to
have been committed. Franklin was
recognized s a man who was seen
around with a negro during the day and
The pocket in the front of Franklin's
trousers on the right side was turned
inside out when he was found. Two
$10 bills were found in the pocket. W.
Tull, who said he had been working on
the Burlington bridge near this city,
has been arrested on suspicion of hav
ing been connected with the case. He
was seen around the station ('uring the
day with a negro and at other times
with a white man who answers the des
ciiption of Franklin. Tull pays that he
and Jim Franklin quit their jobs on the
bridge gang and went to Omaha to
draw their pay, and spent the day in
making purchases and visiting saloons.
He would not identify the murdered
man as his partner. Tull told conflict
ing stories, and the detectives believe
they will be able to implicate him in
The members and friends of the
Methodist Episcopal Sunday school in
this city enjoyed a fine time in the
basement of the church Thursday even
ing. The rooms were beautifully decor
ated with flags and bunting. Four long
tables were well loaded with things to re
fresh the appetite and were surrounded
by happy souls three times. C. C. Wes
cott, the able superintendent, gave a
short address of welcome, which was
appreciated by all. Father Winn in
voked divine blessings. During the
evening the Sunday Bchoo! choir sang
several selections, and the clapping of
hands testified that they were highly
appreciated. Instrumental music and
social conversation quickly whiled awav
the hours. Similar meetings are sched
uled for he future to promote the work
of the Sunday school.
Visiting Old Friends.
Mr. and Mrs. W. II. Miller, the lat
ter a daughter of Captain L. D. Ben
nett, who was engaged in the grocery
business in this city for so many years,
arrived in this city Saturday morning
to visit old friends. Mr. and Mrs. Mil
ler formerly resided here and he was
engaged in the mechanical department
the Burlington shops, but they de
parted about eighteen years ago and
their home is now in San Bernardino,
Cal , and are returning from an ex
tended visit in the southern and east
ern states and they also visited Mr.
Miller's people in Newton, la.
The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
Railroad company is having installed in
the local shops a new electric light
plant for its own use to improve its
lighting. The new generator is of
twenty kilowatt power. This will be a
big improvement on the present light
ing system. P. E. Bricke of Chicago,
the electrical foreman for the com
pany, who has been supervising the in
stalling of the plant, departed Friday
evening for his home in Chicago, but
will return in the near future and see
that the work is properly completed.

The Mondell Homestead Lands
We are receiving thousands of inquiries about the 320-acre
free homestead lands available for settlers under the Mondell Act.
These lands are located in eastern Colorado and in Wyoming along
the Burlington. The great advantage of this new homestead law
is that the settler is permitted to take up free, 320 acres instead of j '
160 acres, the larger tract being required ufcder the new dry farm-
ing methods; northwestern Wyoming has from 16 to 21 inches of
moisture, and has produced some of the finest crops of small grains
ever seen in the west.
I personally conduct excursions on the first and third Tues
days of each month to these lands. Write me for special descrip
tive folders, literature, etc.
IRRIGATED LANDS IN THE BIG HORN BASIN. These
government irrigated lands are being fast taken up by settlers
who realize the coming value of the Big Horn Rasin'lands in view
of the railroad development in central Wyoming.
The United States Land and Irrigation Exposition at Chicago,
Nov. 20th to Dec. 4th, will be of vital interest to the farmer.
HERE YOU ARE
For tne purpose of increasing the circulation of the News
Herald and also of reaching every home in Cass county,
preparatory to making a better paper, we make the following
offer to new subscribers.
The News-Herald from now till after Election lOo
The News-Herald from now till January 1, 1910 25o
Any New Subscriber paying for one year in advance at the
regular subscription price of $1.50 can have the News-Herald
sent free till January, 1910.
This barely pays for the paper it is printed on and no re
publican in Cass county can afford to be without his party paper
at this price. In fact a democrat will gain a whole lot of useful
knowledge he would not otherwise obtain by taking advantage
of this offer.
We have a few of those nice Clocks left which we will give
to any new subscriber who pays one year's aubscription in ad
vance and 50 cents extra, as long as they last.
In addition to every year's subscription in advance we will
give one of those "Don't Break Your Back" Dust Pans, a few
of which we have left.
Then we have a lot of Silver Spoons which are warranted
to be just as good as silver anyway, and will give half a dozen
of these as long as they last to any subscriber who pays a year
in advance with 15 cents extra.
Then there are a few dozen scissors left which we want to
get out of the way and will give a pair of these to any subscri
ber who pays one year in advance and 10 cents extra.
This offer does not any where near cover the cost of this
stuff at the wholesale price, but they are here in the office and
we want to get them out of the way, and we propope to give
new subscribers the benefit.
