MARTYR TO LIBERTY'S CAUSE
Declaration Is Made That He Was
Murdered by Direction of the
Washington. Resolutions fiercely
denouncing the murder of Francisco
Ferrer, the Spanish revolutionist, who
recently was condemned by court
martial and shot In Barcelona, after
referring to him as a "martyr" and
declaring that his martyrdom has
given the cause of liberty a great Im
petus not only In Spain and in Euro
pean monarchlal countries, but every
where that human aspiration for free
dom seeks attainment," were ndopted
at Tuesduy's session of the executive
council of the American Federation of
"We on our own personal behalf as
well as in the name of America's
workers and the whole people," the
resolutions declare, "express our in
tense Indignation, horror and our
strongest protest against the murder
of Francisco Ferrer by direction of
the Spanish government."
Taken In connection with the ac
tion of the supreme court of the Dis
trict of Columbia in sentencing Presi
dent Gompers, Secretary Morrison
and John Mitchell of the American
Federation of Labor, to serve terms In
Jail for contemt of court, the conclud
ing paragraphs of the resolution Is
looked upon here as significant. It
declares that "we take this occasion
of the military murder of a man
whose real offending was speaking,
writing and teaching humanity to be
come more wise, more free and more
liberty-loving, to remind the people
of our country that the liberty of the
citizen is only secure when trial by
Jury and In open court for any alleged
offense Involving punishment is guar
anteed." The resolutions go on to declare
that "the cause of free speech, free
press and free eduentlon has found in
Ferrer another martyr, a more regret
table In an age when civilization
boasts of having replaced the tortures
and brutality of medievalism by tole
ration and freedom and enlighten
ment." The belief then Is expressed that
Prof. Ferrer will take rank with all
those who have done the greatest
service for humanity.
"A noble company of martyrs and a
cause in which a mnn might well give
his life," the resolutions continue,
"did tyrnnny require it. Like Jeffer
son, Washington and Lincoln of our
own country, he labored and taught
and suffered that the people might
have wisdom and be worthy of free
dom," declaring that though Ferrer
suffered the ultimate penalty of a
shameful death at the hands of those
who rule In the doctrine of the
"divine right of kings" the belief is
expressed that the sacrifice was not

GOVERNOR DISCUSSES THE LATE
MORE CARE MAKING SELECTION
State Railway Commission Will Not
Heed Omaha at Present Other
Matters at Lincoln.
Gov. Sheldon has filed a statement
In reference to the decision of the
federal cou.i declaring Invalid (the
Nebraska bank guaranty law on un
constitutional grounds. In the state
ment the governor calls attention of
the public to the need for more care
In the selection of dignitaries of the
inferior courts, and points out that
congress must amend the laws so that
laws, resulting from legislation of a
state, shall not be carried at once
from the control of the state courts
and lodged in the federal courts. He
says that in such a case as the one
under discussion the state supreme
court should have had final Jurisdic
tion, with an appeal only directly to
the United States supreme court.
Governor Sliallenberger says that the
highest court of the land has tho con
fidence of the people, while very often
the inferior courts are presided over
by men who have been rewarded for
political activity. He charges that in
the present Instance the inferior court
has usurped the prerogative of the
supreme court and has passed on a
case similar to the one now before
the supreme court, which had the
lower court waited, would have set
tled once for all the points In dispute.
State Balks on Valuation.
The State Railway commission will
not at this time give heed to the city
council of Omaha and place a value
upon the physical property of the
Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Rail
way company. The commission has
written a letter to Dan Butler, city
clerk, in which It says the legislature
appropriated $40,000 for the use of the
commission In finding the physical
valuation of public utility corpora
tions, and the law specifically provides
that the steam railroads shall be
valued first. The commission, how
ever, states that complaint has been
filed asking for a reduction in fares
on the street railway -line and that
Its value will be a proper subject of
Inquiry, and If the city desires to put
engineers to work on the case the
commission will give serious consi
deration to their testimony. This is
what the city authorities of Lincoln
did in a similar case some time ago.
As to Chaplain Huff.
Governor Shallenberger received a
letter from Frederick M. Smith of
Independence, Mo., first counselor of
the Reorganized Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter Day Saints. Mr.
Smith Is a son of President Joseph
Smith, who Is a son of the Joseph
Smith who founded the church. Coun
selor Smith begs the governor not to
be swayed by religious prejudice in
case Chaplain Huff of the state peni
tentiary has been found to be an able
Christian man. He says that no effort
has been spared to make clear the
difference between tie reorganized
church, which insists upon monogamy,
and the Mormon church, which sanc
tions polygamy. The governor is
asked, if he is not satisfied as to the
character of the men in the reorgan
ized church, to inquire of Senator Bur
rows of Michigan or of Senators Dol
liver and Cummins of Iowa.
Eight 'O'clock Closing Law.
The fate of the 8 o'clock closing law

company to place a valuation upon its

Spinal Disease in Lincoln.
Lincoln has several cases of cerebro
spinal meningitis, the disease which
caused so much trouble in York and
Polk counties and over which the

not to be as serious as the first named
Row Over Law Enforcement.
The city of Lincoln is certainly up
agnlnst it over the row between the
legal department of the county and
of the city. As the county attorney
could not get tho support of the city
authorities in his efforts to clean out
the proscribed district he has called
upon the city attorney to do some
work In police court. The city attor
ney comes back with the statement
that It is tho duty of the county at
torney to do his duty In the police
court and the city attorney Is not re
quired to be present at the court.

State Historical Society.
Eighteen of the twenty-four old set
tlers' societies and local historical so
cieties known to exist In the Btate
have became auxiliary to the State
Historical society since the move
ment to unite such organizations was
started about a year ago. These lo
cal societies are constantly getting
hold of good material and In this
way are an aid to the state society,
besides giving it representatives In
the different parts of the state. Fifty
,fivo new members of the State His
torical .society have been added to
the list of membership during the
past three months, making the mem
bership now 800. Also an addition
of 160 new titles has been made to
the library In the same time. The
officers of the society reoprt a notice
able Increase In the use of the li

different women's clubs who are en
gaged in historical study. The soci

department has started cataloging
the different volumes, of which there
are 3,400 now bound. Besides these
there are 253 volumes of foreign
newspapers. These will all be cata
loged according to the Dewey sys

The State Teachers' Meeting.
At the state teachers' meeting to
be held in Lincoln November 3-6 the
plan for the annual banquet has been
changed. Last year an Immense
union affair was pulled off at the Au
ditorium, but it was found that this
structure or any other that could be
obtained in the city was not commo
dious enough to accommodate all the
applicants for plates. So this year
there will be banquets in four divi
sions. One of these, the normal
training, high schools and the Junior
normal schools, has already sent out
Its program and called on all mem
bers of the association affiliated with
tills' branch of public education to en
roll at once it they wish to attend
the yearly spread. It will be held at
the First Christian church, corner of
Fourteenth and M streets, and will
be served by the ladies of the church
at so much per plate.
The Squirrel Harvest.
Squirrel hunters are reaping a rich
harvest around Lincoln. The rodents
are not hard to shoot, which led to a
law a few years ago to protect them.
Now that they have multiplied ex
tensively In the timbered Btretches
of the state under this very law, and
a recent law passed gives them over
to the nlmrod for two months each
fall, the results have been apparent.
Hunters going out to the woods near
this city have returned usually with
as many as they cared to carry. Far
ther east in the state it Is said the
supply Is much greater.
Lincoln Man to Bring Suit.
Herman Becket of Lincoln, who was
