SHOULD USE IRE CARE
Safe and Careful Drivers Are as
Much Interested in This
No one is more interested in Ihe
problem of controlling motor cars
than the careful motorist, who
realizes that more restrictive laws
will be passed unless means are
found to control reckless drivers.
A certain element of motorists
consider that they are entitled to

The, lime has gone by for
wholesale condemnation. The
automobile is going to bring
beneficial social changes, making
rural residence as accessible In
Ihe world of public conveniences
as Ihe city street used to be. One
interesting theory is to require
cars to be made with an auto

The essential trouble is that a
speed of ten miles an hour in a
crowded street is far more of a
menace than fifty miles an hour

Perhaps the most effective means
would be the withdrawal of
licenses to operate an automobile
from anyone who overspeeds.

II DIFFERENT ACCOUNT OF
THE LOUISVILLE TROUBLE
The Man Attacked Had Just De
posited SS00 In the
The Lincoln Journal contains
the following account of the at
tack on Harry Parker, the Rock
Island contractor, which is some
what different to that reported to
this paper, but in substance
amounts to about the same:
Harry ' Parker, who used to
operate a saloon on North Tenth
street in the city of Lincoln, and
who was brutally beaten up at
Louisville, Neb., last Saturday
night, is reported to be confined
to his bed yet as a result of the
wounds received during Ihe en
counter. Parker is now engaged
in sub-contract ing for grading
work on railroads. He was work
ing for Ihe Rock Island at Louis
ville in this capacity under Con
tractor Robert Malone of Lincoln.
The latter had just paid Parker
$800 with which lo pay off his
men. The money was in cash.
Parker followed Malone's advice
and placed the money in the bank.
After dark, in company with one
other man and two boys, Parker
started up the railroad track to
wards camp. When about 200
feet from the depot he was set
upon by five men, who used a
loaded butt end of a buggywhip
and beat him up in terrible con
dition. The two boys ran away,
but the other man stayed and was
almost as severely treated. Park
er made a good defense and cut
up two of his assailants with an
empty beer bottle which lay handy
on the ground where the thugs
were lying in wait. After he was
down and so badly used up that he
could not rise Ihe five thugs con
tinued to kick him in the head
and neck. These are, the wounds
which still leave him in a serious
condition. He was robbed of about
10 after the beating had been
done up to the satisfaction of the
five men. It is said that I hey are
all in jail at Platlsmnulh, and
that two of I hem still bear marks
of the encounter. Local talent did
