AT THE Mil
Nebraska Statesmen Still at Loggerheads
Senator Burkett and Congressman Pol
lard Almost Use "Shorter and
From the following from Washington,
under date of February 11, it would
seem that the Nebraska statesmen were
getting somewhat "hotter" over the
collectorship: Details are beginning to
leak out, concerning the last session of
the Nebraska delegation in the effort to
reach the agreement on a patronage
distribution plan, which indicate that it
was one of the most animated affairs of
its sort that was ever suppressed by
careful arrangement so that newspepers
should not give too many troublesome
At one stage Senator Burkett and
Congressman Pollard had a right lively
exchange in the course of which, while
the "shorter and uglier word" was care
fully kept in the background, the inti
mation that it would accurately apply
was given by both gentlemen.
Later, Senators Burkett and Brown
got into sharp disagreement and report
says that the junior senator snapped his
fingers under the nose of his senior and
declared his views with great earnest
ness. The senior senator kept his peace
for the time being, but later in the ses
sion came back in kind, declaring him
self in unmistakable terms. Honors
were even as between the senators.
The fact that nobody reached for any
body's else scalp in the three hours of
the heated session is become matter of
wonderment since the details have been
reaching the light of day.
Senator Brown wanted to adjourn for
thirty days, for a vote on the revenue

E. B. iladlcy Dies
News Was Received Today
of the Death of a
Former Citizen of
E. B. Hadley for a number of years
a citizen of this place, and who some
six years since moved to the west,
locating at Kalama, Washington, died
at that place on January 29th. Word
was received to that effect by rela
tives in this city today. Mr. Hadley
will be remembered as having lived in
this city for some twenty . years, and
during his stay here was engaged in
general teaming and dray business.
Mr Hadley was stricken with paraly
sis, and died about ten days later. The
funeral was held on January, 30th, the
interment being made at Kalama, Wash.
Mr. Hadley left here on November 26th
1902, and with his son, Bert, has made
his home in the west since. Bert is
now a navy machinest, located at Ta-coma.
collectorship appointment, after the
patronage distribution plan had been
"If you do that, my name comes off
the agreement," Congressman Boyd
sharply replied. "What I want is to
get this thing acted on, and I can't stand
for any such delay as that."
The majority was with Boyd and the
adjournment was cut down to ten days.
At present the impression in the delega
tion is that the meeting of February 15
will settle the matter by taking a vote
on the collectorship. The Rose people
seem to be doing most of the work in
the direction of providing jobs for both
Rose and Hammond.
The Hammond people are not so much
concerned since they become reasonably
assured that they would land their man.
At the same time, there are two or
three members of the delegation who
might be changed yet Hinshaw, Kin
kaid and Norris and it is recognized
that the fight will not be ended until a
ballot ends it.
Governor Sheldon and Senator Brown's
alliance is said not to be coming on so
well as it might. There was strong
suspicion that it had been pretty well
organized, a fortnight ago, but now
there is report that the governor de
clines to forgive the state convention
last summer for failing to give him a
stronger indorsement in the resolutions,
and for failing to mention him by name
as responsible for the railroad commis
sion legislation. Senator Brown was a
member of the resolution committee and
the governor is reputed to think that if
the senator had really cared to do it, he
could have had those things fixed up so
as to shed larger glory on the executive.
THE YOUNG MEN
ARE SO COY
Leap Year is Drawing Nothing
for (he Young Ladies-
Does anj'one know of even one real,
legitimate leap-year proposal that has
been accepted and threatens to bear
fruit on Hymen's altar?
For some inexplicable reason the girls
! do not seem at all anxious to avail
themselves of their prerogative for leap
year, or else the men are ruthlessly
rejecting their kind offers.
Semething certainly is wrong. Eith
er the men refuse to take this leap
year business seriously or the girls have
been scared out by ingenious story some
man started just before Jan. 1, to the
effect that the woman who takes ad
vantage of a man and marries him on
her own initiative must support him.
That is almost enough to frighten any
timid girl. Nowadays girls marry
mostly to escape the necessity of earn
ing a livelihood, and what's the fun of
marrying if the drudgery must go right
The cause for the failure of this leap
year to accomplish the prime purpose
for which leap year was invented is
problematical. Men say that the girls
are growing more coy every year, and
that while they will lead a man to the
very brink, they insist on his saying
the actual words that lead to the en
Girls say the financial depression has
made them a bit wary, and that anyway
men will not be serious over a leap
year proposal. If they must really
support the man they selected to be
their better half they are going to wait
until conditions improve and they can
afford to keep a husband as he should
There havn't been any licenses of
particular interest yet this year and the
girls say they are a little afraid even
to accept a proposal lest the "catty"
ones wink and toss their heads and say
something about "leap year being
rather convenient for some people."
But the year is young.

Narrow Escape of Snodgrass
& Martin's Livery Darn,
the Loss is Not
Last evening the fire alarm sounded,
calling the people to the barn of Snod
grass & Martin, where a slight blaze
was the center of the attraction. Clyde
Funk and Ralph Sherwood were work
ing around the stable when it became
time to light the lamps, Ralph got up
and lighted one of the lights above the
horses, and noticed that it immediately
began emitting a humming noise. The
boys observed the joist across which
the wire extended immediately sprang
into a blaze. They at once grasped the
small hose which is used for washing
the horses and carriages directing
stream of water upon the fire. The
stream did not seem to have much of
an effect, so Mr. Funk ran to the fire
bell giving the alarm, while Ralph kept
the stream steadily on the fire. In a
short time the thorough wetting of the
timbers extinguished the fire, without
the department getting out. Loss was
small, while the excitement of the boys

terested in the natter.
The Weeping Water Republican in
speaking of the- lowering Main Street
says: "To lower the streets of Platts
mouth or not is the leading question
discussed at the Hub. To avoid floods
in the future or take their chances from
a cloud burst. The rub is in the ex
pense, the work and inconvenience,
Thousands of dollars in property have
been damaged in the past, and the
thinking minds of the largest city in
Cass County have discussed ways and
means of keeping water out of the old
town, but to no avail. When a big
black cloud comes rolling down the
Platte, you might see the citizens of
Plattsmouth come out and gaze heaven
ward with a distressed look on their
face painful to behold. Some of them
begin praying that they be spared the
work of cleaning out cellars and spread
ing their clothes on the court house
lawn to dry. It is to be regretted that
our friends over there should suffer as
they do, and personally we would not
object if the county commissioners
could stretch a point to assist in any
way with funds to prevent further
floods. Not a citizen in Cass county
but feels sorry when they hear of such
troubles. We hope something perman
ent and effective will be accomplished, j
and the subject not be dropped until j
active work is commenced."
Policy Holders Complain.
A Lincoln, Neb., corespondent says:
Policy holders of the Guarantee Fund
insurance company of Omaha have filed
a complaint with the state auditor in
which it is alleged that the insurance
company is not complying with the laws
of the state. It is said that the mortu
ary or reserve fund of the company has
been greatly reduced by transfers to
cash funds and that the security to
police holders is much lessened. Ex
aminer Wiggins has recently gone over
the books of the company which will be
submitted when the examination is be
gun that promises to follow upon the
complaint to the local stockholders.
The company has about 1,000 members

These plate rails may he nu-de very
decorative or they can be absolutely
hideous. A jumble of color, for in
stance, Is downright ugly, or, a rail
full of china that does not harmonize
with the tone of the room, though the
separate pieces may not clash.
This defect can be overcome this
season by choosing for your decora
tion a nation plate rail. It will be both
arti&tic and inexpensive, or, at least,
comparatively so, as the separate
plates can be bought for 50 cents and
Each plate has the coat of arms of
a different nation of the world, as
nearly as possible in the natural col
ors. There are, of course, liberties taken
with them for artistic effect, but the
chief color of the frieze is in these
The whole thing is given a touch ot
harmony by the border which is alike
on all the plates. It is two tones of
olive green brightened by dashes cf
red at regular intervals.
This treatment of a plate rail would
be specially good for a yellow room or
one in dull gray blue, as there Is
enough red and bright green in the
coats of arms to give warmth.

To Keep Table Unmarked.
I find the most practical way to pre
vent hot dishes from marking your
dinine-room table is to get a piece of
table oil cloth, cut the size of your
table, either round or square, put un
der your pad, and then your cloth on.
And where a hot dish is placed on
the table, you are sure there will be
no mark. If at times you have to en
large your table have the oil cloth
split through the center and that way
It can be slipped to the ends and af
