ADJUTANT GENERAL'S REPORT

Lincoln, Dec. 9. In his annual re
port to the governor Adjutant General
Iiattigan asks for an Increased appro

eesslty for an efficient guard; recom
mends that the office, together with
till those connected with it, be taken
out of politics, appointments to be
made wholly as a matter of merit;
ihat the adjutant general be provided
with an adequate salary as compensa
tion for the private emoluments he
gives up; that officers' commissions
should be, by law, indeterminate, de
pending only on ihe efficiency of the
officer as to length they should run
that when commissions nre tauen

a board of Inquiry; and lastly that the

EW YORK likes something dif
fereut, and when an "out
casts' festival" was adver
tised to take place In a ball
on the lower east side near the Bow
ery there was a large audience pres
ent, scores of men and women paying
25 cents each for the privilege of look
ing at and listening to persons wllllug
to pose an social outcasts. They may
have got the worth of their money, but
they saw few individuals who even
remotely resembled outcasts.
Hutching Hapgood, who writes
books and newspaper articles, was
chairman of the meeting. Much of
his literary output has dealt with what
Is sometimes called "the underworld,"
and this qualified him to boss the
"outcasts' festival." "Chuck" Connors,
sometimes called tho mayor of China
town, was on hand, but he was thero
merely as a paid jyerformer, anxious
to earn $5. He afterward complained
that ha rilil nnt fft t hut tlint xvna H

of the show.
"Chuck's" pnrt In the entertainment
consisted In reciting sentimental poet

tously haired poet and dramatist,
whose father was a German and
whose mother was a Japanese. Hi
rend one act of a "sex drama" ho has
written, nnd the audience decided that
one act was enough.
Dr. Ben L. Peitman, who has taken
the title of "king of tho tramps" and
boasts that he hns been nrrested kt

which showed respectability on one
sldo nnd the criminal element on the

Railroad Allowed to Average a Full
Shipment of Stock.
Lincoln, Dec. 9. The Burlington
railroad received from the railway
commission the authority to average
the charges per car in shipments ot
more than one carload in tho same
train by the sumo dealer. In the past,
companies have charged extra where
the weight per car was above the max
imum, and full carload rates where
the weight fell below the maximum al
lowed. In this way a shipper sending
several loads to market was done an
injustice. Under the provision grant
ed by tho commission, the Burlington
may now average a full shipment of
stork nnd if the average is below the
maximum carload weights, It will be
allowed to charge the shipper merely
car rates. The order will bo effective
from all Nebraska points to South
Omaha. The averaging will only be
for the same classes of stock, hogs,
and cattle from the same shipper, not
beKg averaged with each other.
