These questions are presented to the

says the Lincoln News, the defendant

fined $100 and costs last September for
having In l.is possession without all

a small village of that county, where
the offense occurred. His trial was
started and proceeded to the point
where a nlea of not utilit y had been
entered, a jury empanelled, testimony
for the state introduced and a motion
for dismissal denied. The prosecution
then secured permission In amend its
hill of particulars, after which it ol
jected to one of the jurors silting in
the trial and by that means obtained
a continuance, the entire jury being
discharged, .subsequently, the case
was tried again and Stelnkuhler was

was entitled to the benefit of and mis

dent savs: "Silas I!, ilarton, grand
recorder of the Ancient Order I'nited
Workmen, has returned from Mont
real, Canada, where the session of the
supreme lodge, Ancient Order I'nited
Workmen, has been held. M r. Ilarton
states that Nebraska's delegation se
cured about all that It asked for and,
In common with other jurisdictions
similarly situated, wanted.
"The supreme lodge was one of the
most favorable ever held for years,"
saysMr.Harton. The Nebraskajurisdle-
tlon has absolutely refused to pay un
der the law the guarantee fund asked
for by the supreme lodge for the reason
that the amount requested was, In the
judgment of this jurisdiction, the
same as bankruptcy; and conseciuently
the Nebraska jurisdiction refused to
pay the assessment. Through the
strength of the delegation from Ne
braska and other jurisdictions the
supreme lodge was amended in such a
manner I hat from and after .1 uly 1 the
guarantee fund will be doncaway w ith

rates raise and Invest its own reserve

the Nebraska jurisdiction has striven
for, the right of selfgnvernment.
M. K. Nehultz of Ileal rice was
chosen as inside watch by that body
and S. 11. Ilarton was named as a mem
ber o the linance committee. I hiring
the session Nebraska members held
very important places on the commit-
t.iees. Jacob Jaskalek, of South ma-
ha, was placed on the committee of
"good of the order," M. K. Schult. on
the committee of "merger" and S. II.
Ilarton on the committee on "condi
tion of the order" which committee
had to do with the vital question rela
tive to the guarantee fund and to the
preservation of the high rate jurisdic
tions. O. J. Van Dyke was on the ad
visory committee of the degree of
honor. Will M. Narvis was re-elected

preme Lodge r.ulletin, published at
Sioux Falls, and a source of much ex
pense to the organization, was discon
tinued and all communications from

organs of the various Jurisdictions.

to reduce the representation, but it
A 'phone message was received at
Hie Journal odice just before we had
gone to press Thursday afternoon
stating that a serious wreck had oc
curred near Louisville, In which the
pay car, which had left this city about
2 o'clock, had been wrecked near
Louisville. A reporter Immediately
proceeded to the llurllngton depot In
an effort to nahi some information re
garding the accident, but im one
seemed to know an thing about it. A
reporter might just, as well bunt lor a
needle In a hav slack as to try to get
any particulars of railroad accident-,
from oiieofthe employes. They are
adverse lo giving particulars about
such tilings, through compulsion, or
ot hem ise.
The accident occurred, however,
about one mile west of Louisville, and
at about the hour of .!: I'i p. in. The
particulars of which, as near as we
can glean them, are about as follows:
A bridge over a small stream was
washed out by Hie heavy rain of a
short time previous, and the engineer
did not see it until It was too late to
slop his t rain. The underpinning of
the bridge was entirely swept away,
leaving the rails suspended in midair.
1'nable to avert an accident, the en
gineer threw on a full head of steam
and the engine and pay car cleared the
bridge without leaving the track, al
though the track sagged at least four
feet. After landing safely on the op
posite side the tender left the rails
and went Into the ditch.
Paymaster lleans received a severe
scalp wound and was cut about the
face In several places. Koadmaster
Ibsan was perhaps the most seriously
injured, receiving a badly sprained
back. A wrecking crew was soon on
on the grounds and had everything in
shape for the passing of trains. Ills
very fortunate that the accident r
suited no worse.

The Louisville Courier gives the
following particulars of a barn that
was struck by lightning during the
storm last Thursday: "During the
electrical storm Thursday afternoon
C. Ci. Maytield's barn was struck by
lightning while he and his two sons
and hired man were In the barn. They
had just finished unloading hay and
the storm came up licforc they could
get their teams out of the drive way
and Into the basement. The bolt
struck directly above them on the roof,
divided and went down each side tear
ing up the bhlnglcs and spliting the
rafters from top to bottom. Fire was
started In two dllfcrent places, and It
was only by their being right In the
barn and acting quickly that it was
saved." Louisville Courier.
The editor of an exchange with a
head full of "queer thoughts," prints
the following: "If we were to an

that It could be sent three months for
the price of a hymn book, half of them
would not know whether we had rais

The Lincoln Star of Friday, In
speaking of the wreck near Louisville
"There were many disappointed
worklngmen In Lincoln, last night,
when they learned that the llurllng
ton pay car had gone Into the ditch
near Louisville. One family was
obliged to postpone a long-planned
vacation trip because the head of the
house, who is a railroad man, could
not get his pay to defray the expenses
of the journey.
"Paymaster lleans was injured when
the car rolled from the track. Koad

gallant search for medical aid con

of the catastrophe before It was too

and then the wrecking outlit arrived.

There no doubt is a movement on

will strive to make dollar wheat by
operating through the assistance of
the American Society of lenity of In
dianapolis, I ml. The society has a list
t)f 120 counties In the winter wheat
stales and many Nebraska counties
are Included In the list, and Cass
county Is one of them. These 120

given to I he farmers. The American
Society of Faulty at Indianapolis Is

is constantly at work on a plan to
