DESIRE 10 DIS LOCAL ttEWS KISS IDE SUI1 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 Y UP PASS THE PUBLICITY BILL 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.

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 Benate. 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. HAREM SKI T STIRS LONDON 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 ankles. DR. MARY WALKER PLEASED. Noted Advocate of Man's Garb De clare She I Vindicated. Dr. Mary Walker, who hit worn a f,rock coat, trousers, silk hut aud other articles of attire usually sacred to mas culinity, is rejoicing at the news from 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 when trousers will be the universal garb." Dr. Walker, however, does not wear the sort of trousers that the Paris mo- V ( : " L I f $ j PR. MAR? WALKER. dlstes bnve Indorsed. She wears trou sers made of broadcloth and other ma terial exactly as men's nre made. The Parisian modistes are advocating trou sers that will have frills and furbelows a-plenty and will resemble the mas culine gnrwent only In general con tour. "I have tried various sorts of cloth ing," said Dr." Walker In discussing the news from Paris, "and I have been convinced that the most sensible and rational garb Is that worn by men. 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." Sliirt Man Released. R. A. Margerrell, the shirt sales man, who was arrested for peddling In the city without first obtaining an occupation license, and afterward jailed for being drunk and disorder ly, yesterday filed an affidavit for continuance ot the hearing for the violation of the occupation ordinance to Saturday February 25th.

ASCETICISM. I recommend no sour ascetic life. I believe not only in the thorns on the rosebush, but in the roses which the thorns de fend. Asceticism is the child of sensuality and superstition. She Is the secret mother of many a secret sin. God when be made man's body did not give us a fiber too much nor a passion too many. I would steal no violet from the young maiden's bosom; rather would I fill her arms with more fragrant roses. But a life merely of pleasure or chiefly of pleasure is always a poor and worthless life, not worth the liv ing, always unsatisfactory In Its course, always miserable in its end. Theodore Tarker.
