The state of Nebraska will pay the
bill for medical services for Mr.
Gritz, the governor announced at
the statehouse yesterday.
The case has attracted much at
tention over the state and particu
larly in this portion where Mr. Gritz
is well known and the governor with
his usual fair-minded judgment, has
gone into the matter very thorough
ly and made his findings accordingly.
The dignity of the law that should
command its respect from the good
citizens of the state will be raised to
a higher plane by the action of the
governor in making the enforcement

Miss Etta Nickles, residing east of
Murray, who has been at the hospi
tal at Kirksville, Mo., for some time
past, recuperating from the effects
of an operation for gall stones, has
returned home. The operation was
apparently successful in every way
but has left the patient rather weak
and it will require some weeks of
rest in the pleasant Cass county home
to restore her former good health
but the many friends of Miss Nickles
are trusting that the period of re
cuperation will be as short as pos
sible and, that she may find perma
nent relief from the operation.

Havelock Shopmen Told Next Act cf
Violence will Mean Martial
Law in their City.
Lincoln. Aug. 2 8. Governor S. R.
McKelvie this morning carried to
Havelock, Neb., in person a threat of
state troops and martial law as a
means to combat railroad "strike vio
lence. Facing 800 rail strikers and their
wives in. the city park at Havelock
the governor declared the next overt
act reported from there would be a
signal for the arrivalv of troops and
establishment of miltary rule.
His speech followed a request made
to him by E. F. Balance, Havelock
mayor, who is a striker, to deliver
his message in person. The message
had been delivered Saturday night
through Ira Miller, sheriff at Lincoln,
but many of the strikers were re
ported to have questioned the right
of the sheriff to present it.
At the request of Rev. L. V. Slo
cum of the First Methodist church,
who declared it was up to the strik
ers to protect life and property, the
audience cheered the governor.
General Superintendent Flynn of
the Burlington route, said this after
noon that the company has no pres
ent intention of rmoving the guards
at the Havelock shops, whose pres
ence, it is alleged, has been the cause
of friction at that place. Mr. Flynn
added that the strike situation had
reeahed the point where it was nec
essary that the workers in the shops
be gien the right to come and go
as they please. Heretofore the men,
he said, had ben confined closely to
the shop enclosure, wheer they were
housed and fed, but he insisted they
be permitted to go on the streets
iwthout molestation. Some of the
business men and strikers at Have
lock predicted if the shop workers
appear in public it will precipitate
In the Far East, Christianity has
come to mean "war" says Fred B.
Smith, religious investigator, after
an oriental tour. In India they told
him, "Christianity, a cannon ball, a
submarine and a gas bomb go to

many years, what might have been
the progress of Christianity in China
The big job for missionaries now
is to explain this to the heathen:
Christianity, the religion of peace, is
not a failure. The trouble is in the
failure to live up to the teachings of
