Nebraska Telephone Company Profits b

The following Is clipped from the
Omaba Bee of this morning: "Tlie
Nebraska Telephone company sent
eluht workmen to Lincoln Tuesday to
help the men there meet the demand
for Bell 'phones and they will be rein
forced by other employes of the com
pany In a day or two.
. "The Independent Telephone com

in Its schedules of rates and this had
the effect of a bombshell thrown Into
tbe midst of a quiet country gather

cording to reports from Lincoln fifty
one independent telephones were or
dered 'out' Monday, seventy-five Tucs

out today. The patrons who have or
dered their 'phones out have fallen
into the habit of using telephones and
have ordered the Bell to supply them.
The Bell Is endeavoring to meet the
demands as quickly as possible.

VETERINARY LAW HELD VOID
Statute Enacted by Last Legislature
Pronounced Invalid by Judge Leslie
of County Court.
The law enacted by the last legisla
ture to regulate veterinary surgeons
Is unconstitutional according to a de
cision rendered by County Judge
Leslie yesterday afternoon in the case
of the state against Dr. D. D. Turner,
says the Omaba Bee. The case was
filed by Dr. Ramacclotti as a test of
the law. The decision will be of
Inrerest because several other Drose-
cut Ions hinged on the outcome of this
case. It Is said It may be carried to
tbe supreme court for a final test.
The law which he declared bad pro
vides that no person engaged In the
practice of veterinary surgery shall
assume the title, veterinary surgeon,
or any analogous title or anv deuree
conferred by a recognized college of
veterinary surgery unless he has first
secured a license from the state board.
The law did not prohibit unlicensed
surgeons from practicing, but merely
prevented them from holdlnir thum-
selves out as such or from using any
title or degree in connection with
Judge Leslie held that this was not
a proper application of police cower
of the state and was an Improper
aoriagementor the personal liberty of
citizens. He pointed out that ths
law made it a crime for a person who
as unlicensed to tell another nerson
that he had received a degree of
veterinary surgeon from a college even
inougn it was true. A. W. Jefferes,
who attacked the validity of the law
also contended it was against public
policy and Intended to protect titles.
Dr. Turner has practiced In Omaha
sixteen years, ne was a student at
Oxford, a graduate of the Edinburgh
Veterinary college and a graduate In
organic and Inorganic chemistry In a
London school. Because he was not
registered the law prohibited him
irom hanging tils diploma on tbe wall
of his oftlce or even telling anyone he
had a degree or was a veterinary sur
geon. Uls speclrlo offense was In send
ing out a bill, with the words "Dr.
Turner, graduate Teterlnarlan," . on
It. He was arrested for usinir th
title after his name. Judge Leslie
said he thought a law that provided
no veterinarian should Dractice with.
out registering would be sound, bub
ne aia not mink the legislature had
ma rignt ito deprive a nerson of the
right to use a title or degree that bad
been conferred upon him.

Some people have no Idea what it
costs the taxpayers of each county to
elect .their public servants, and the
Journal has gone to the trouble to get
the amount that each candidate spent
In the recent election from statements
filed by tbem with County Clerk
Rosencrans. Following are the names
of those who have filed their state
ments and the amounts expended by
each candidate. Also the amounts'
spent by the county committees:

From the foregoing it will be seen
that the republican county committee
spent over three times as much money
as tlie democratic committee. Gov-

state as filed with the county clerk are
$712.83, and that' of Congressman Pol

becomes necessary for these gentle
