AT THE CAPITOL
What a Traveling Man Says
Regarding the Banner
A special from Lincoln says: "The
traveling man, who had no particular
interest in the matter, declares that a
neighbor of his was the man employed
to take down the banner, and that neigh
bor told the tfacts to him under a pledge
of keepiug his name secret. Neither
man wants his name known because of
the trouble it is liable to plunge them
into. The traveling man does not want
to be placed in a position where he may
be forced to break faith with his neigh
bor and the latter fears that liability
for the damage done in taking the ban
ner down may be charged to him .
"It is true at any rate that the banner
did not bear the union label, and that
union labor men of Lincoln had made
several complaints to the state commit
tee about the omission.
"The banner in falling dropped over
a trolley wire, which promptly set fire
to it. It wa3 the resulting appearance
of the banner after the fire had been
extinguished that gave the state com
mittee its clue to make political capital
out of the incident. No one save the
committee knows anything about the
banner from the time it was taken down.
No other hand than those of the em
ployes of the committee have ever touch
ed it. No attempt by any one else to
take it away.
"The committee had it taken to the
shop of Lincoln Sign works where no one
is allowed even to see it, and where the
photographs which are being distributed
were made. These photographs, made
behind closed doors by the employes of
the committee, are the only ones in ex
istence. One is told at the sign com
pany shop that they have orders to let
no one see it.
Celebrated Kis Birthday.
Matt Joy was the recipient last even
ing of a most pleasant surprise, a num
ber of his friends descending upon his
home on Vine street to help him cele
brate his thirty-second birthday. As a
memento of their good feelings, they
left with him a fine rattan rocking
chair, something he will cherish for the
rest of his days.
The evening was spent most pleas
antly with games, music and pastimes
galore, an especially pleasing feature
being several ballads rendered by Vic
tor Anderson. Mrs. Joy prepared some
most toothsome refreshments, after
which the guests departed satisfied that
they had had one of the most enjoyable
evenings in their lives.
Those present included Messrs. and
Mesdames Will Scotten, Louis Egen
berger, Joseph Peters, John Lutz, Mike
Lutz, Harry Barthold, Dan Smith, Will
Smith. Joseph Wales, Ward Clark,
John Sattler, John Busche, Dallas Gib
son, A. L. Anderson, Mrs. B. E. Byers
of Hastings, Neb., and Victor Ander
son. The Matter Somewhat Mixed.
Mr. R. B. Windham, local represent
ative of the Nebraska Underwriters
Insurance Company, called at the Jour
office yesterday and stated that that
company took exceptions to the state
ment that they had declined to settle
the loss sustained by H. E. Weidman
upon his stock oi merchandise in the
fire of July 4th. From their statement
it would appear that the company did
not refuse payment but that their ad
juster left with the understanding that
Mr. Weidman was to make an inventory
of the stock left which was still sale
able when the matter would be taken
up again. They claim all companies
had this understanding and not them
alone. This is presented so that all
may have a right to be heard in the
matter. Mr. Weidman last evening
denied that any understandiug had
been entered into by which he was to
make an inventory.
Nebraska Loses Money on Eggs.
State Food Commissioner Johnson
has issued another bulletin against
bad eggs. He warns farmers, retailers
and produce men against selling them,
as each offense makes a person ' liable
to a fine of $10 to $100. It is his duty
to prosecute offenders. He says:
"Nebraska hens are producing 90,
000.000 dozen eggs annually. These
Nebraska eggs are worth 3 to 5 cents
per dozen less than the highest market
price in New York, Philadelphia and
Baltimore on account of the low grade
they take on these markets by reason
of the dishonest and careless mixing of
bad eggs with the good.
"Five cents a dozen on 90,000,000
dozen eggs amounts to $4,500,000.
Best the World Affords
"It gives me unbounded pleasure to
recommend Bucklen's Arnica Sa'.va,
says J.W. Jenkins of Chapel Hill, N.C.
"I am convinced it's the best salve the
world affords. It cured a felon on my
thumb, and it never fails to heal every
sore, burn or wound to which it is ap
plied. 23c. at F. C. Fricke & Co. drug
i Pretty Quick Time.
W. B. Banning and William K. Cross
of Union, came up this morning in Mr.
Banning's automobile, making the run
! in one hour. They came near having a
1 serious accident at Henry Eikenbary's
place just south of the city, the burr
coming off of the rear wheel on the
right hand side of the car letting the
wheel drop down. Fortunately the ac
cident had been discovered bv Mr.
Banning before any harm resulted, he
feeling the unusual motion of the ma
chine and tninking it was skidding,
bringing the machine to a stop without
damage. Mr. Banning had business to
transact at the court house and also
took occasion to treat a number of his
friends to a ride in his machine.

New York, July 20. Cardinal Gib
bons, of Baltimore, said before he sail
ed for Genoa with many other Roman
Cathollch dlgnatariea on the pilgrim-
age to Rome: "I am much concerned
over the political conditions of this
country. There seems to be sucn a
gradual trend toward unrighteousness
in the great mass of our people that
thinking men must realize that the
problem must be met without delay.
There is no politics without morality.
"There is no morality without re
ligion, and without religion there Is no
God. In politics today men will sell
their votes for a dollar and a half.
Corrupt political bosses in many states
and cities lead men to vote either way
they choose. Men are nominated and
elected who are unfit" The cardinal
continued that the place to begin train
ing the future citizens is In the public
schools. He suggested that each re

schools, the expense to be borne by the
