GASOLINE SUPPLY OF THE NATION Figures From Washington Indicate There Will Be Ample Supply For Needs at Present. Washington. March 23. The mil lions of motorists concerned over the matter of the nation's gasoline sup ply may experience at least tempor ary relief in the announcement of the United States Bureau of Mines that the stocks of this vital fuel were increased in the month of January by 119.000,000 gallons. On Febru ary 1, there was a reserve of 705, 700,000 gallons, which , is 130,000, 000 gallons more than for the corre sponding date in 1921. The figures are rapidly approaching the S00. 000.000 gallon record mark made in May of last year. Production of gas oline in January amounted to 444. G2L7S3 gallons; imports were 250,393 gallons; domestice consump tion amounted to 22.717.168 gal lons; exports to 49.S56.310 gallons; and shipments to insular possessions 675. G59 gallons. Present stocks are equivalent to fifty days' supply bas ed on the total daily average con sumption for 1921. Operative refin eries in the United States numbered 292 on February 1, with an indicat ed daily capacity of 1,753,940 bar rels. Plants running continued to op erate on an 80 per cent basis. An increased demand for gas and fuel oils may be anticipated if the pending coal strike becomes a real ity. Stocks of these oils on hand Feb ruary 1 amounted to 1,319,481,359 gallons. Based on the daily average domestic consumption for 1921, these stocks are equivalent to sixty-eight days' supply. The production of these oils in January amounted to 858, 110. S77 gallons. During January the nation's out put of kerosene amounted to 172, 917,141 gallons, an increase of 2, 500,000 gallons over the preceding month. The fact that, despite this increase in production, stocks of lcer- .osene decreased 13.500,000 gallons indicates enlivening in the movement of this product. Stocks of lubricating oil on 'hand February 1 were 245.000.000 gal lons, an increase of 28,465.000 gal lons over the month previous. AT JERUSALEM TO FILM DAVID AND GOLIATH Jerusalem. March 22. Twenty stars of the American film world have arrived in Jerusalem recently to prepare for the filming of the Old Testament story of King David. The big scene in the play is to be the fight between David and Goliath which will he staged a few miles north of te city. Biblical accuracy is not strictly to be adhered to, since the scenario provides a love scene after the battle. About 5,000 persons are to be em ployed in the filming of the play Five thousand Bheep, "1,000 camels. and 2,000 goats are also to be used. This will be the first time a pro duction of any magnitude has been filmed in the holy land. Apart from the appropriateness of the country for the filming of biblical stories, it is said that Palestine is unsurpass able for film productions owing, first to its natural beauty, and sec ond to the clarity of the atmosphere. The big reputation of Tanlac,has been made by doing what other medi cines failed to do. F. G. Fricke & Co. "It's the Chapest Thing I Ever Bought," Writes Mrs. J. Mason, Va.

Mauley Farm Implement Company Herman Dall, Manager MANLEY ATTACK NEBRAS KA'S PROHIBITORY LAW AS INVALID State Compelled to Defend Against Ruling of District Judge that Section Relating to Stills Not Enforcible. Whether there is any valid state law prohibiting the operation of stills and the possession of mash is a question the supreme court now has under consideration. A decision will not be given for some time. Arguments on the matter of whether the legislature blundered and put the amendment in a place where the con stitution says it could not be legally inserted were heard Thursday morn ing at Lincoln. At the last session of the legisla ture the prohibitory law was amend ed in a number of particulars. As passed Section 16, which originally covered only permits for the sale of ethyl alcohol, was amended so as to include a prohibition of keeping or operating a still. Judge Tewell of Keith county, before whom was brot John Opela, John Badberg and Adam Kosmicki, charged wit hviolation of this section, held that it violated Section 14 of Article 3 of the new constitution which provides that no bill shall contain more than ore sub ject and the same shall be clearly expressed in the title. He said that the amendment was not germane to the section amended. W. D. Oldham a one-time supreme court commis sioner, defended this ruling and at tacked the method of amending the old law, which he said had made a roaring lion out of an innocent Mary's lamb. It was the task of Assistant At torney General Dort to defend the law. The arguments of both attor neys were largely technical, but Mr. Dort laid down the ' broad general proposition that any number of amendments may be contained in an act, however diverse they may be. so long as they are not inconsistent with tfie general subject of legisla tion and have a natural relation to it. If the title of the original act is sufficient then the title to the amen datory act Is also sufficient. He said that nowhere had the con stitution required the legislature to break up the laws they pasB Into sections. It 'was done merely for convenience, and was not mandatory. Therefore, this entire law being de-; Mrs. Mary Murphey lias been mak ing some improvements to her home, in the vay of having a new roof placed on her residence. Mr. Job a Falischm.-Ln, the carpenter, doing the work. Mr. C. E. Mockenhaupt has been working for some time past at the plant of the Mar.ley Farm Implement company assisting the n anagT. Mr. Herman Pali with the work which sems a plenty at this time. John Falischman and daughter, Ada. and Master Glen Falischman, son of Fred Falischman and wife, were .-pending the day in Plattsmouth last Saturday, where the young folks were interested in the spelling con test. Mrs. James Kelly and children, of Dubuque. Iowa, who have been visiting here for some time and call ed here on account of the death of Julius Bickert. and visited for a short time with friends departed on last Thursday for her home in the east. Mrs. John T. Murphey and daugh ter. Miss Helen and son Thomas were in Omaha one day last week to visit with the husband and father, who is at the Saint Catherine hospital w hern he is convalescing aftr having un dergone an operation for appendi citis. Miss Clara Trihy who visited her home at Gretna last week, and was not able to get back in time to take up her work at the school, hud the place filled by the kindness of Miss Mable Coon, who taught until Miss Trihy returned. Her failure to pet home was the not running of the bus line. Wm. Harms, who has been in the hospital, at Omaha for come time, where he underwent an operation for appendicitis and is feeling pretty well and will be ready for work again in a short time. He is enjoying a visit from his friend, Charles Postelle. of Omaha, who is Fpending a few days at the Harms home. NEBRASKA voted lo laying down the retrictions to be placed upon the use and sale of intoxicating liquors, no part of it could be held unconstitutional be cause the new matter may not be deemed strictly germane to the sub ject of the section amended. If it be germane to the subject covered by the bill it is constitutional. Mr. Dort further took the position that- the object of the constitutional provision cited is to prevent deceit on the part of a legislator or a legisla ture, and to make it impossible to slip into a bill or to amend a law in such a way that public attention is not challenged to what is bHng sought. There is no question of that sort in this case, he said. The amend ed lav; contained a large number of changes and public attention was directed to all of them.
