Governor Ilolcomb Knocks it out
in ten Seconds.
The World-IIerald has been
hamme'ing and maligning Gover
nor Ilolcomb for-months because,
as it says, he docs not enforce the
ware house lav. An interview was,
therefore, sought with the governor
to learn what was at the bottom of
it all. When asked about it, the
"The provisions of the ware
house law almost wholly eliminates
the governor from any part of its
enforcement. II is only once
mentioned in the whole act and
then is given power to appoint one
inspector. All the duties, all other
appointments and the power to
enforce the act are, by its provis
ions, pfaccd entirely in the hands
of the Board of Transportation.
This Board is composed of the at
torney general, state auditor, secre
tary of state, state treasurer and
commissioner of public lands and
buildings, the governor not being a
member. As well might it be said
that the governor is responsible or
the manner in which the provis
ions of the law are enforced rela
tive to the freight rates, passenger
traffic or the transfer switch law or
any other law coming under the
jurisdict;on of the board of trans
portation, as to hold him responsi
ble for the nonenforcement, if such
there be, of the provisions of the
ware house law. The statute es
pecially provides that ajl the pro
visions of the act aro to be enforced
by the board of transportation and
I have no authority other than the
general constitutional one to see
that all the laws are executed. If
any of the provisions of this act
have been violated it has not been
brought to my knowledge and I
assume that the executive officers
of the state who are especially
ing the provisions of this act are
not knowingly permitting any vio
lation thereof. In the first place,
it is probable that during the last
year no great amount of grain was
shipped out of the state and hence
there wasnoopportunity to observe
the practical workings of this law
and, in the second place, you can
not compel men to store their grain
if they do not wish to. Further,it
may be said to be a very serious
Nuuestion whether the people care
ai this time to store their grain,
plying insurance, storage charges
and the interest on the money bor
rowed on their receipts, with any
reasonable hope ot gaining profit
by the probable rise in prices suffi
cient to cover these extra expenses.
I, for one, do not believe that there
will be any appreciable rise in the
prices of grain until there is a radi
cal reform in the monetary system
and we have an increased volume
of currency. Under such condi
tions people might see it to their
advantage to avail themselves of
. provisions a of law of this kind
and store their grain for higher
prices. If the law is not enforced
id the violation is shown to me, I

"Prosperity With a Vengeance.
Eighty-five foreclosure suits have
been instituted in this county this
week in which 500 citizens are
financially interested. Prosperity,
which the gold brgs have been so
loudly prating about, is conspicu
ous by its absence.
Another wave of John Sherman's
prosperity struck Lincoln Monday
afternoon and caught McCall &
Burch, druggists at 1229 O street
for about $5,000. The failure was
due to hard times and not enough
money to keep business operating.
It is to be hoped they and their
friends will continue to vote the
republican ticket and wait for
the good old times that never come.
Veith & Reese, grocers, doing
business at 917 O street, made an
assignment Thursday. Liabilities
7,000; assets $4,500. More pros
perity and gold standard.
Bill Dech says that there are
positive signs of the coming of the
long talked of republican higher
civilization as grocers, dry goods
and other houses where commodi
ties are, are going to the wall and
the building of war ships and manu
facture of improved firearms are
pushing to the froDt.
The good substantial meals for
10 cents at the Merchants Hotel P
and Eleventh streets, are the won
der of the ;:ity.
The sporting editor of the Bee,
S. V. G. Griswold charged with
being accessory to the killing of
Fletcher Robbins in a prize fight,
in which Griswold was refferee was
tried before Judge Chapman in
Plattsmouth on Thursday. He was
found not guilty of the crime
charged but pleaded guilty to aid
ing and abetting a prize fight and
fined $100 and costs.
No jamming, no stools to Bit on,
but good service and a a good din
ner for 10 cents, Merchants Hotel
P and Eleventh streets.
E. II. Wooley has gotten him
self into a scrape in Judge Chap
man's court in Plattsmouth. He
is charged with attempting to set
tle the Griswold prize fighting case
for a consideration while he was
employed to assist the prosecuting
attorney. Judge Chapman ex
cluded him from the case and or
dered him to show cause why he
should not bedisbarrcd.
Clean napkins, clean fable cloths,
atleutive waiters and a meal of
best of food for 10 cents, Merchants
Hotel, P and Eleventh streets.
Onk of the gold bug papers un
dchook to work a Wall street
game on Lincoln merchants last
week. All the mailing list of the
numberless dead papers which have
ever been printed in this city were
secured and their advertising man
went around showing them to the
merchants, saying "Look at our
enoraious mailing list. That proves
the great circulation of our paper."
The game didn't work.
No where in the United Stnt.-B
was ever so good a meal given for
ten cents as at the Merchants Ho
tel corner P and Eleventh Btreets.

Thuugh it iati'U( as the author of a
school composition unco assorted, that
"sleeping1 is u universal practice
among all nations." it is also true that
there is a great, diversity in the
methods of Blooniiitf union jr people of
different nations and different ways of
life, says tlio Youth's Companion.

Kveu tho sedative medicines which
put ono person immediately into a

condition of nervous rostleBsiiess.
Tho European or American, in order
to sloirp well, ordinarily requires a
downy pillow under his hoad; but the
JupanoKu, si retelling himself upon a
rufh-mat on tlio floor, puts a hard,
square, block of wood under Ids hoad,
and docs not sleep well if Ito doos not

While tho people of northern coun

Tho robust American often cover
himself with a pair of blankets and
throws his window wide open to tho
air, even in tho winter time, nnd he
doos not complain if ho finds a littlo
drift of snow across tlio top of his bed
in the morning.
Tlio Kussian, on Iho contrary, likes
no sleeping-pinco so woll us the top of
Iho big soapstono stove in his domicile.
Crawling out of this blistering bed in
tho morning ho lilies to take a plunge
in a cold stream, even if bo has to
break through the h.o to get into it.
The Laplander crawls, head and all.
into a bag made of reindeer skin and
sleeps warm and comfortable within
It. Tho East Indian, at tho other end
of the world, also has a sleeping-bag,
but it is more porous than the Lap
lander1?. Jts purpo.-;o is to keep out
mosquitoes more than to keep the
sleeper w:h .j.
While tho American bU!1 elings to
his feather pillow ho is stc;ulily dis
carding his old-fashioned feather bod
in favor of tho bair or straw matross.
The feather bod is relegated to tho
country and many people who slept
upon it all through their childhood
find themselves uncomfortable upon it
lu their maturity.
The (lermans not only sleep upon a
feather bed, but underneath ono. Tho
feather covering used in (iermany,
however, is not as largo or thick at,
tho one which is used us a mattress,
and tiic foreigner who undertakes to
sleep beneath it often finds his foot
frufTering from cold, whilo his should
