Missouri Pacific Railway Co.
Would End Manley Elevator
Case. ,
The Missouri Pacific Railway com
pany has Med in federal court a mo
tion to dismiss the case of the Mis
souri Pacific company versus Hudson
J. Wlnnett, the Nebraska state rail
way commission and the Manley Co
operative Grain association, wherein
the railway company had prayed for
an Injunction against, the railway
commission. The company bad been
ordered ly the state railway commis
sion to construct and operate a
switch to accommodate the Manley
Co-Operatlve Grain association ele
vator at Manley, Neb. The railway
company applied for an Injunction to
prevent the enforcement of the Judg
ment requiring the building of the
track and the switch. The Missouri
Pacific now represents that the con
troversy Involved has been settled be
tween the company and the grain as
sociation, with the approval of the
t-tate railway commission, and the
plaintiff therefore asks that the case
e dismissed without prejudice at the
cost of the complainant. Rome time
prior to March 12, 1907, the Manley
Co-Operative Grain association ap
Iillcd for a site upon the Missouri
Pacific right-of-way upon which to
build an elevator for the private use
and benefit of Iho grain company, ac
cording to tho allegation of tho plain
tiff. The grain association offered no
compensation for tho Blto. Tho rail
way company refused It. The grain
company then constructed Its
elevator on adjacent ground p.nd ap
plied to the Missouri Pacific Railway
company for the construction of a
switch to lead to the elevator and
conned with the main lino of the
rallrond through the town. The
switch would cost in the neighbor
hood of $500, no part of which the
elevator company doKlred to pay.
The railway company refused to con
struct the switch. The grain com
pany instituted procodlngs In the dis
trict court of Cass county to recover
the penalty of $500 under the law
compelling railroad companies In Ne
braska to afford facilities without
favortlsm or discrimination. Judg
ment was secured against the Mis
souri Pacific company. It was then
that the company made application
for the Injunction, which application
they now ask to have dismissed.
From Sulurdav' 1'aily
VVe woiiflet K the bill calling for
an appropriation ot $25,000 Isn't
likely to slumber In the committee
room too long. Kvery day adds to
the number of bills Introduced In this
t-esslon of the legUalture. and the ap
propriations aBked for are running to
so high a figure, that when paring
time comes, the publicity bill may get
Bwampcd or sidetracked. Friends of
the measure should get It out of the
committee and on to the floor of the
house. It will not do to take chances
on so ImportaHt a measure. All ad
Joining states are considering ap
propriations for advertising their re
ftourccH, and Nebraska cannot afford
to he behind In this Important work.
More publicity insures more popula
tion for Nebraska. Advertising our
resources has been sadly neglected
There are even people In the state
who know but little of the wonderful
natural advantages of our various
localities, says the Fremont Herald.
Failure to advertise Nebraska and
the advantages offered In Its soil and
the valuable resources underlying it,
together with opportunities every
where for manufacturing Industries,
means that people who read of
similar advantages offered by other
states may be attracted there Instead
of to us. Nothing but the truth is
necessary to bring our state before
the world properly, but the trutn
must be blazoned and Bpread and It
takes money and time to do that
effectively. Nebraska Is the best
place in tho world for men and
women to make a living; its entire
atmosphere, both from the stand
point of health and society, with Its
(iiliicntlnn al facilities, and the In
stitutions and Influences that form
the foundation of good citizenship,
all conspire to attract people, but if
we keep our light under the prover
bial bushel much longer, we shall
perhaps awaken to find the tide of
settlement going elsewhere, bocause
of the lack of appreciation in start
ing the boosting of our manifold ad
vantages before the other surround-
Insr states get busy. Pass the bill
without delay.

French Spoliation Claims Also Go
Down to Defeat Possibility Lowei
Body WIJ1 Rush Bills Through Un
der Suspended Rules.
Washington, Feb. 20. A truce en
tered into last evening brought the
long filibuster in the house against the
omnibus war claims bill temporarily
to an end. The agreement was reached
following an intermission of three
hours, devoted to memorial services
and eulogies to the late Senator Clay
of Georgia and the late Representa
tive Brownlow of Tennessee.
These services seemed to put the
house combatants in a more peaceable
frame of mind.
When the house convenes today an
effort will be made to adopt a rule
Bhutting off further delay. It will be
bitterly fought by a new band of fill
busters, made up of former advocates
of the measure as It came from the
Representative Mann (111 ), who con
ducted the original filibuster, ended
his fight when he succeeded in hav
ing the old French spoliation and the
navy yard overtime claims stricken
out. This was accomplished when the
house voted to substitute a house bill
for the senate bill. The house bill
carries only war claims which have
been adjudicated in the court of claims.
The Democrats who were particular
ly interested In the war claims affect
ing southern persons were opposed to
the spoliation claims. When they vot
ed to strike out the latter, however,
they lost the support of the Repub
lican members who favored the omni
bus bill because It included the French
chims. Realizing that the new house
bill probably had not the slightest
chance of pnsslng the senate, Mann
ceased his filibuster.
It was immediately taken up, how
ever, by Representative Gardner
(Mass.), Rennet and Parsons (N. Y.)
and several New England members.
The New Englanders said unless the
bill contained the spoliation claims it
should not pass. They will offer long
amendments to the house bill today
unless the rule excludes them.
Woman Wearing Latest Paris Creation
the Cause of a Riot.
London, Feb. 20. A harem skirt,
the very latest thing in dress for wom
en, caused a riot here. An aristocratic
looking aud fashionably attired wom
an appeared in Regent street, wearing
a pantaloon skirt and it required a
large section of the metropolitan po
lice to handle the riot that followed.
A crowd of rapidly growing propor
tions followed the woman, jeering her
and making many disrespectful re
marks. She tried to flee, but the
cumbersome skirt nearly caused her
downfall. Finally she hailed a cab
and rapidly drove away.
The harem or trouser skirt is one of
the most startling departures from
the conventional dress ever planned
by Paris dressmakers. It consists of
baggy trousers with a panel of cloth
between them. Some are hidden by
a sort of overdress, although this may
be pulled aside or held up so that the
pantaloons effect can be seen. The
trousers are fastened Just above the

Dr. Mary Walker, who hit worn a

Farls that fashion has decreed trousers
for woman.
"I am vindicated," declares Dr. Wal
ker, who now lives in Oswego. N. Y.
"I knew that the time would come
when my sex would be free from the
thraldom of skirts. It Is about here,
and I expect to live to see the time

news from Paris, "and I have been

All women will ultimately adopt this
style and will discard corsets and oth
er articles that are uncomfortable and
unhealthy. The adoption of trousers
Is a step in the right direction."
