THE HOME OF SATISFACTION
Several Important Bills Said to be Backed by Them Have Al
ready Been Offered in the Lower Branch of the Legislature.
The assertion is now made by those
Interested in preventing legislation
against the railroads that four or five
bills can be directly charged to their
efforts. With railroad managers the
feeling is growing that they are be
ing made to stand a cross fire, coming
from the labor unions who insisted
recently on an increase in pay and
made the demand from the organiza
tions of all the road3 in the west on
the managers of all the roads; and
from these same forces from another
quarter asking for legislation that
will affect the roads, some say seri
ously. Four or five bills now before
the legislature are said to ibe backed
by trainmen and other organized em
ployes of the Nebraska roads.
Bill No. 33 Is designed to fix the
kind of freight caboose cars used
The bill fixes the minimum length of
euch cars at 24 feet exclusive of plat
forms; the strength as equal to that
of 60-ton capacity freight cars; plat
forms not less than 24 inches wide
suitably equipped with rails and grab
Irons and steps; car to be 12 feet in
. height, equipped with cupola and
necessary closets and windows. The
date at which this bill shall become
effective is fixed at June 1, 1914, and
the railway commission is given
power to make such extension of time
as may be deemed necessary.
In behalf of the railroads It Is said
that caboose cars are being equipped
with closets and other needed conven
iences, and that the standard of size
13 being raised as rapidly as these
cars go into the shop. Very few cars
of the 4-wheel "bouncer" type are
used by Nebraska roads. It Is claimed
the basis of complaint comes from
two recent seasons of rush business
when the number of trains run was
greater than equipment could be pro
vided for and the roads impressed
Into service Improvised cabooses
mnde from box cars. During the
seasons of rush business Nebraska
roads frequently ran passenger
coaches attached to freight trains
where caboones could not bo pro
vided. House roll No. 53 relates to service
letters from employing railroads,
making It necessary to give employes
letters showing servlco record and
Card of Tliitnks.
We desire to express our most sin
cere thanks for the kindness and
loving sympathy shown us In our sor
row, especially to the shop men,
Parmele theatre men, the R. N. of A.,

Railroad authorities say this would
be a dangerous law for them. Men
are let out of the service occasionally
for drunkenness, short changing the
company and violation of the rules.
It Is held that such letters might in
volve the company in costly legal
proceedings, and that service letters
are refused only for good cause. On
the other hand employes say that
men are sometimes let out without
Just cause and they desire some pro
House roll No. 71 reflates to the
hours which railway employes may
work, fixing sixteen as the maximum
and providing that employes working
this number of hours must have ten
hours' rest before going on duty
again. The provision is made that in
case of unavoidable accident or cas
ualty resulting from an act of God
the law shall not be operative. It is
'made the duty of the railway commis
sion to enforce the law.
It Is said this law is very much
like the national law applying to
hours of labor for railway men. The
railroads of the west are now living
up to the law and are reporting viola
tions of It by Its employes to the In
terstate commerce commission.
House roll No. 135 Is designed to
prevent railway trainmen from taking
orders from a train dispatcher direct
over the telephone. At many places
on the lines In this state operators
are not maintained at all hours of
the day. When a train arrives at
one of these stations it Is often con
venient in the expedition of train
movements for the dispatcher to give
the conductor an order that will per
mlt him to move his train to the next
station ahead of a following train.
or In the face of an opposing train.
In behalf of the railroads It Is
claimed that a trainman not compe
tent to receive and receipt for such
an order is not competent to run a
train; that the opposition comes from
trainmen who do not want to assume
this responsibility and from operators
who desire to see more of their fel
lows employed. It Is said that tho
passage of this law would Increase
the cost of railway operation in the
state without corresponding benefit

BUYS ANOTHER QUARTER
SECTION BEFORE LEAVING
Gust Conieister, of near Pocasset.
Oklahoma, who has been visiting the
Goos and Soennlehsen families and
other relatives In Plattsmouth and
vicinity for two weeks, departed for
his home this morning.
The relatives here regretted to see
Grandpa Bomeister depart so soon,
as all enjoyed bis visit immensely,
but he had become so accustomed to
his Indian neighbors down there that
he became quite lonesome away from
them. He did not depart, however,
until he had purchased another quar
ter section of fine land from Ed
Gansemer. The land lies near Mr.
Bomelster's farm, and he thought
himself fortunate in securing this
addition to his Oklahoma possessions.
Mr. Boraelster is well pleased with
the new country and has much con
fidence In its future.

LITTLE DAUGHTER OF 1.
UNO I18J0ETEL DIES
Edna May, the thlrteen-months-old
daughter of Mr. Claus Boetel, died
this morning after an Illness of three
weeks or more. The little tot was
first attacked with a severe case of
whooping cough which later devel
oped into capillary bronchitis, from
which the little one passed away at

The anxious parents had nursed
the little one with a great deal of
care, and yesterday morning thought

community in their sad loss.
The funeral will occur tomorrdw

A Reliable Cough Medicine.

Honey and Tar fulfills this condition
exactly. Mrs. Charles Kline, N. 8th
St., Easton, Pa., states: "Several
members of my family have been
cured of bad coughs and colds by the
use of Foley's Honey and Tar and I
am never without a Dome in tne
house. It sothes and relieves the Irri
tation In the throat and loosens up
the cold. I have always found It a re
liable cough cure." Sold by F. G.
