HE GOULD NOT
STAND THE SHOCK
Was More Than His Refined
and Sensitive Nature
Would Stand, So He
Left the Show.
A bunch of people came from Elm
wood to attend the stockholders meet
ing of the Plattsmouth Telephone com
pany Monday, after having attended to
the business of the meeting, and had
their supper at the Riley Hotel, the
question of what should be done with
the time which intervened until the
train should come to take them home
which was due at midnight, confronted
them. The "Land Of Nod" poeple
fairly swarmed the hotel lobby, and
with the many winsome faces and wil
lowy forms, they sure were a catching
crowd, and to stop at the same host
lery with four or hve hours to put in
and nothing to do, and not attend the
show when the telephone stock had
paid full ten per cent, looked and
seemed a shame. So the Elmwood
crowd all concluded to attend. All
went, and getting seats together, were
chatting along congratulating them
selves upon the pleasantness of dame
fortune, when up popped the curtain,
and appearing from every portion of
the stage was a young lady, dressed,
briefly, as regards to the length of the
skirts they wore. Archie, from Elm
wood looked and a crimson wave over
spread his face, and hot waves chased
each other over his now florid counten
ance and he thought of his wife at
home if she should know he was in
such a place, his eyes fell to the ' floor,
only to raise again, but to rest upon
the awfully dressed girls, but for an
instant, and to drop again he turned
uneasily in his seat, and looking around
to see if he was observed. No one
noticed, they were too busy, all had
their eyes glued on the stage, so our
hero stole silently away, and as he
passed out of the door, took one last
look and returned to the hotel. He
thought he would await the crowd, but
the time grew long and he went to bed
and was soon in the 'and of slumbers,
forgetting chorus girls with short
frocks, and knew nothing more until
the next morning, where he was re
galed by his companions for leaving
the show, for they did finally miss him.
He says that they were too much for
him. The crowd departed for home the
next morning on the ten o'clock train,
still joshing their friend.
Returns from the West
John Rotter and wife returned Sun
day evening from a two weeks' trip to
the northwest, where they were guests
at the home of their son, Vincent, who
has a ranch near Cody, Wyoming. Vin
cent has been there for a number of
years and is well pleased with the
locality. He has his ranch well stocked
and produces an abundance of all kinds
of crops, except corn. The weather in
the Big Horn Basin is much milder than
in the same latitude elsewhere. The
many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Roetter
and there son, will be pleased to know
of his prosperity.

C. H. Vallery and wife returned this
morning from Greenwood, where they
were in attendance at the funeral of
the latter's father, Howard Sprague,
who died last Sunday at the advanced
age of 93. The funeral services were
held from the Methodist church and
conducted by the Methodist minister of
that place. Mr. Sprague was making
his home with his daughter, Mrs. John
Hall, of that place, his wife having
preceeded him to the other world some
years since. Mr. Sprague leaves three
daughters one living in Washington,
Sarah she having married there, and
Mrs. Hall with whom he made his
home lately, and Mrs. C. A. Vallery of

Mr. Sprague made a trip across the
plains and mountains to California with

at which time he crossed the river at
this place, locating in Montana, where
he lived sor a number of years, later
coming to live at Greenwood. The de-

"The Bucks of the Timber."
Mr. Editor: I wish to call your at

lodge, "The Bucks of the Timber."
Mark White, one of the members, has
been batching for some time on ac
count of the sickness of his mother-in-law,
and has not been able to take
proper care of the goat belonging to
the lodge. Mr. Georere Smith, the
"King Snipe, " was seen going in the
direction of Mr. White's lately, and it
is expected that Mark will advertise for
a housekeeper at once.
Mr. White is having all kinds of
trouble, While he is looking after the
water tank, the tea kettle freezes up,
and when he is looking after the tea

about twenty-five years.
Position Given to F. C. Weber, Former Super
intendent of the Nebraska Light Compa

For a long time it has been
to T. H. Pollock that he had more
work in the management of the Platts
mouth Telephone company than he
could do well and look after business
which was connected with the Platts
mouth Water company, and at the
meetings of the other officers of the
telephone company it has been thought
advisable that he should be relieved of
the position of superintendent of the
Repeatedly has Mr. Pollock sugested
to the home office of the company in
Boston, the advisability of placing some
one else in the position thus allowing
him a better opportunity to look after
the ever increasing business of the
telephone company. The home office of
the water company was very reluctant
to give up the services of Mr. Pollock
as their superintendent and were there
fore very slow in securing a man for
the place. Although Mr. Pollock has
handed in his resignation many weeks
ago, the water company has sought to
retain him, well knowing the value of
When it finally became apparent to
the office at Boston that Mr. Pollock
could not be retained, they had their

Was Looking for Escaped Prisoners
C. E. Dalton of Glenwood, deputy
sheriff of Mills county, Iowa, was a
visitor i" the city last evening, looking
for some escaped prisoners, who broke
jail there a few nights since, and who
might be here he thought. He found
nothing after being here for a short
time which would justify him in the
belief, and departed for home on the
late Burlington train.

WIS flffl STATE
The Federal Government Should Prevent Dis
crimination Between Places in Different
States and Different Persons.
William Jennines Brvan in the Feb
ruary Reader, a monthly publication,
says: The railroaa question as it now
presents itself involves more strin
gent regulation by both the state and
the nation. It is possible and necessary
for the state and the nation, each in its
own fhpere, to extend their control over
the railway lines. The state should
regulate local rates and local operation;
it should prevent discrimination be
tween places within the state and be
tween its own citizens. It should re
quire that the local rates be not only
equal between citizens, but equitable to
all. The Federal Government, without
interfering with the authority of the
state, should add a national remedy to
the state remedy not substitute a na
tional remedy for a state remedy. The
Federal Government should prevent dis
crimination between places in different
states and persons in different states,
and should compel the equal and equita
ble treatment of all persons interested
in interstate shipments. There need be
no conflict between the state and the j
; of the Nebraska Lighting company.
This change will enable Mr. Pollock
to get after many details of the busi
ness of the telephone company which
the attention which he has been com
pelled to devote to the water company
as its superintendent has prevented.
The office of the water company will be
changed from the telephone building to
the basement of the Cass County bank,
where the offices of the Nebraska
Lighting company are now located and
will be conducted jointly with that of
the Nebraska Lighting company by
Mr. Weber. The work shop will be
changed as soon as a suitable room can
be secured, from the basement of the
telephone building, as the room is
badly needed by the telephone people
for a place to do their work, which is
ever increasing as their lines are ex
tending and the number of offices and
subscribers becoming greater.
The telephone company is a very
forceful demonstration of good manag
ment of t,he business of the company,
coupled with the interest that the
stockholders and patrons of the system
have in its success by reason of the
company being a home institution. The
water company seems by placing a
stranger at its head in the city, and
having no one in its welfare other than
to make its collections, would be going
exactly the opposite direction.
John M. Vondron at Home Again
John M. Vondron returned yesterday
from an extended trip to Ohio,
where his father died some weeks since
at the advanded age of eighty-five
years. He says that the weather in
Ohio has been ideal for winter, but on
his return he had hardly started when
a snow storm began and at Chicago a
veritable blizzard was raging.
Miss Agnes Thrasher Returns.
After an absence of many months.
Miss Agnes Thrasher returned home
Sunday evening from Deadwood, S. D.,
where she has been spending the win
ter at the home of her brother. While
in the northwest, Miss Agnes was em
ployed in a stationary store. Miss
Agnes likes the northwest well, but

nation in the arrangement; it is no more
necessary that Federal regulation should
exclude state regulation than it is that
state should exclude Federal regulation.
Two reforms are imperatively needed
at this time. First, the present value
of the railroads should be ascertained,
and this value ought to be measured, as
the value of all other property is meas
ured, viz, by the cost of reduplication.
Second, the issue of watered stock and
fictitious capitalization should be pre
vented. These reforms should be un
dertaken by the Federal Government
and by various states. A third reform
follows as a matter of course the re
duction of rates, state and interstate,
until the railroads yield an income suffi
cient to insure a reasonable return on
the value of the roads, and no more.
When these reforms are secured,
passes abolished (where they have not
already been), the railroad lobbyists
driven from the state and federal capi
tols, and the Feberal courts properly
restricted, the prejudice of which rail
road managers complain will disappear,
and there will be harmony between the
railways and the public.
