Governor Shallenberger Monday
designated the Omaha World-Herald
and the Lincoln Star as the two
daily papers to publish his proclama
tlon containing the names of 5,000
corporations that failed to pay the
new state occupation tax September
1. It is estimated that the legal
charge for the publication in one
issue of a newspaper is $535. Two
other papers designated offered to
do the work for $450. The leglsla
ture appropriated $1,000 to pay the
cost of publication. In parceling
out this patronage the governor
overlooked several Democratic dally
papers in the state, but as he could
not give the work to all he gave It
to the two papers designated. The
proclamation will declare that unless
the corporations named pay the state
occupation tax by November 30, at 4
p. m., their right to do business In
the state shall cease. It applies to
both domestic and foreign corpora'
Hons, except Insurance companies,
banks and other institutions specifi
cally exempted under the law. A
suit has been filed to test the validity
of the tax.

In the district court for several days

submitted to the court. It was agreed
that Mr. Moran was to be given" a
divorce and the custody of the chll

was the amount of money which was
to be given to Mrs. Moran, and how
it was to be paid, or when it was
to be paid. This case has been on
for some time, and after Mrs. Moran
was declared sane there waa nothing
to do but go ahead with the divorce
proceedings. Judge Travis took the
matter under advisement and will
hand down a decision when he re
turns next . week Borne time. Ne

Prospects for in Early Settlement
Rot Very Favorable.
Omaha, Sept 27. The chances for
settling the strike of street car men
in this city did not clear up much to
day, although it had been believed
there wsa a probability of the strike
being ended before tonight. Presi
dent Wattles at yesterday's coafer
ence with municipal officials of Om
aha and adjacent cities through
which the company's lines run, Inti
mated on what basis he would reem
ploy the strikers, but this proposi
tion was not laid before the union
officials nor the men individually,
and for that reason no action was
taken by the striking employes.
President Wattles said that ' he
would have no dealings with the union
and would deal with the men only as
Individuals. He declined to make
any proposition to the union and the
leaders of that body aay there Is
nothing before them to consider. It
was' stated by Mr. 'Wattles -that 'seventy-five
old employes had reported
for duty since Friday and that others
had asked for reinstatement.
A mass meeting ot the car men
was held at Labor temple thla after
noon, where 300 of the men as
sembled. The proposition of the com
pany was read and rejected? b;a;
unanimous vote, after which it was
decided to continue the strike.
All of the old men returning to
work this morning were' given much
better runs than they had before the
strike. Some previously held what
are designated as "swing" runs,
while many others worked on relief.
All of them are now given regular
runs, by which-they are enabled to
get in ten hours and an Increased
wage of 1 cent an hour. ' The service
today has been nearly normal, cars
leaving and arriving at the terminal
points on schedule time.
The men have until Tuesday noon
to return. After that, if they come
back, they come as new men and will
have to take their chances on secur
ing regular runs.
Ben Commons, the organizer, who
is charged with being instrumental
In bringing on the strike,-and ; w.bo
has been conducting it since its ln
ception, stated this afternoon that
the men will never accept the terms
offered by the company and approved
by the committees to the conference.
He declares that If better terms are
not offered, several new cards will
be played. He intimates that the
electrical workers, the machinists,
the barn men, the track men and all
other employes will be called put,
and a complete tie-up of the system
will result. He says these men are
In sympathy with the strike and only
require the word to walk out. On
the other hand, the street railway
company officials say that the men
are loyal and will remain so. The
men themselves are not talking.
As a result of the strike, retail
business is beginning to suffer. Peo
pie from the country will not come
to town and those from the residence
district do not care to take chances
on riding on cars, fearing that they
will be injured by mobs.
The Al-Sar-Ben festivities are
coming on the last of this week, and
unless the strike is settled before
that time, which now seems lmpos
Bible, they will be a failure. The
parades can be pulled off, but there
will be few to witness them.
Saturday night as Victor Sherwood

met two lone highwaymen who de

Vic had reached the curve in the

of. Vic took a hike and completely
outclassed the robber. If a shot. was
fired it was bo far in the rear that
Vic did not hear It, although when
he first was accosted the villain had
his his hand behind him as If to draw
