the estimation of the bar of the state

pointed to by lawyers as models of
conciseness. It was said by some
that he piobably came to Lincoln at

Snow plows stood in read mess for

snow falling on a tield of old snow
that covered the ground and had

THE CUSS COUNTY BAR
DEEPLY REGRET DEATH
OF JOOE HQLLENBECK
From FrMuy'ji Iuily.
The death of Chief Justicj Conrad
Ilollenbeck of the state supreme
eourt was learned of with the greatest
of regret by the members of the Cass
county bar, many of whom knew the
enminent jurist real well during his
Ion; residence m Fremont, where he
had been district judpre since lb'J.'j.
The justice had been in very poor
health for the past year, and at the
last democratic state convention his
apparent feebleness was noticed
among: the delejrates, and many e
j resred their surprise at his enterim:
t lie campaign. Judge Hol!enlcck's
death comes just at the time he had
realised one of the ambitions of his
life, that of sitting on the supreme
court of his state, and it also de-
p ives the people of the state of tin
rcntlits of his splendid judicial train
ing on the bench. The Idling: of the
vacancy on the bench will be awaited
with interest by the attorneys
throughout the state.

By BISHOP TUTTLE
Dean of AH the Episcopal Bishops in
the United States Is a Gentleman
Who Says What He Thinks.
From SaturtlaVs UaPv.
A special to the St. Louis Globe
Democrat, under date of January 1?,
fi-om San Antonio, Texas, says:
Bishop Daniel Sylvester Tuttle of
St. Louis, in an interview heie today,
declared against prohibition anel equal
suffrage, and said the war in Europe
was not the result of lack of religion.
Lisbon Tuttle is in San Antonio to
lend the second annual synod of the
Episcopal Province ef the Southwest,
which convenes here for three days,
beginning tomorrow morning. He
assailed prohibition as an un-American
theory, lacking in moral argu
ment. "God put evils into the world," he
said, "and man must choose for him
self the thing he should do. It is ail
right for a man to drink, but not for
him to get drunk. God could have
neated the world and placeel mankind
here without evil influences. Put he
did not do this, and it is not right for
majority of people in the country to
take the evil away. I believe every
community should regulate its own
problems in its own way. For thai
reason I am opposed to state pro
hibition. '"I can see why it is demanded in
the business world for men to be re
fused employment if they drink. Loco
motive engineers, bookkeepers and
others cannot do their duty when
their biair.s are muddled by liipuo-.
Put that is a business argument, not
a moral argument."
Despite the bishop's opposition to
the . principle of woman suffrage, he
believes that the cause will win in the
United States within the next few
"It is not fair to women to give
them the ballot." he said. Already
women are iloin? more than half of
the worl i's work. They monopolize
the activities in the home, in the
ci'ii'vh. the school and in many phase..;
of business life. (Jiving them the
i allot is only adding to their bur
dens. "It is said by supporters of ti e
cause that suffraire would eliminate
many of the social evils. That re
mains to be seen. Many of the wom
en who would vote ai-e degi-aded wr
en who could be easily influenced by
prejudice and money, and it seems to
me there would be merely an additin i
to the corrupt vote. The better type
of voter in this country among tke
men is negligent in his political duties
now. I do not think the result wouid
be materially different after women
obtain the ballot, as they will within
the next few years."
Commenting on the war, 15 i shop
"Patriotism is leligion. In war.
when the state demands young men
to firht it is their Christian duty to
fght. So. instead of saying that the
war is tne result of lack of religion,
cr.e should say that eluty to the Pag
and ccHintry is religion. Russia
France, England, Germany, Austria-
Hungary and Pelgium have responded
"It is a mistake for persons to sup
pose that the church is the only divine
institution." Pishop Tuttle said. "The
minister of civil government is a min
ister of God. The family, the state
and the church are divine institutio' s
put here. All of them are sacred."
Bishop Tuttle said that while
America would profit in a business
way in certain respects as a result of
the European war, it would lose much
more than would be gained. He as
serted that already there has develop
ed a hopeless attitude on the part of
many business men, with the result
lesi improvement work is being don.
I-'ewer business ventures are being
made, he said, and numerous em
ployes have been thrown out of em
ployment. However, he is optimistic
regarding the futui-e of business in
the United States and believes tha;
there will be a gradual stimulation of
business . as soon as the nation'.;
psychological fear is ended.

Has Quite a Painful Fall.
From Saturday's Daily.
This morning Claus Boetel, the
veteran express man, came down town
and his appearance excited a great
deal of curiosity among his friends,
as his nose was deprived of the
greater part of the cuticle and look
ed as though our old friend had been
cut on the battle line, but he ex
plained the matter by stating that
last evening as he entered the barn
to feed his horses, after dusk, he trip
ped and fell and struck the edge of
the manger, which being harder than
the nose, refused to yield, and as a
consequence the nose had to suffer.

GREAT DEMAND FOR THE
RESTORATION OF BURUG-
TON TRAINS NOS. 1 AND 10
From Saturday's Dally.
r rom dispatches H orn lmcoln in
the state papers it would seem th
there is considerable agitation from
the towns west of Lincoln over th
restoration of Burlington trains Nos.
J and 10, or the providing of some
equally convenient substitute fo.
them. The traveling men on the road
out of Lincoln seem to be the chief
sufferers from the taking off of these
trains and they claim that it works a
great hardship on them in getting to
and from the capital city. The matte-
has been brought to the attention of
the state railway commission and that
body will endeavor to secure some re
lief from the situation for the resi
dents of the towns complaining. The
officials of the passenger department
do not seem, from the tone of the dis
patches, to favor the proposition o:
putting on the service asked for.
There was much agitation here at dif
ferent times during the past two
years to secure a stop here of No. I
prior to its removal from the scheelule
to the running time of No. 9, but U
was without result, as the officials
did not think the returns would war
rant the change, although a com
promise was made whereby the train
made stops to let off passengers from
east of the Mississippi river. This
was in effect only a short time when
the train was taken off.
