The attendants would take those that did not voluntarily get in line, by the shoulder and n-ontlv move them to the line where thev would follow without further dis turbance. The dinner was well cooked and was liberally served. Every patient had all that he could eat. There were two kinds of bread, tbore was boof, po tatoes, cabbage, tomatoes, raisin pud dinir and tea. coffee and milk to drink Those natlents who are sick or for any reason cannot eat the regular meals are Klven a special diet of whatever tbey may ask for. Everything is kept neat aud clean. At the farm tbey are building an ad ditlon to the barn. The addition will consist of a basement and two stories above all constructed of stone aud brick Tbe work of construction is under tbs direct supervision of Dr. Abbott and Mr. ltewick. Two or three skilled work men are employed and the balance of the work is being done voluntarily by tbs patients. 1'atiente are not compelled to work but are merely allowed to work when they desire to do so. Dr. Abbott believes that linht work is better for them than complete idleness and en courages tbeiu to work wttsn tbey are abietotlu so.

Tor the first six months of 1807 the expense have been running at a rate of 1162.08 per patient per year. It therefore ap pears that in spite of tbe opposition of the republican board of pubho lands and buildings and tbe many other obstacle the populists hare been gradually re ducing the expense from $240 per cap ita to $103 per capita. Mr. Rewlck' exposure has saved tne taxpayer! oi Nebraska many thousands oi aonare. The current expense account, board, clothing fuel etc., for 1800 to 1802 (re publican) was l64.877.iora4i pa tients. For tbe porlod 1804-06 (popllst) tha current sinenses amounted to only $118,T78.03 and the average number of patients was 55. In other words the populists took care of 14 more patients for two years with $45,508.48 less than the republicans, ins repuoiicans ex ponded for fuol and lights during two years f27,oo.ou. in last legislators appropriated oniy fii.uuw w vf ,or the fuel and ngnts tor tus ensuing iwu l aI. ..

If Sustained will Make a Consldsrabie Saviog to the Taxpaysrs. Attorney General Bmyth, at tbs re- auot 0 th9 auditor, has given his opln on on the question of the amount of iMl. county treasurers may reiain as : . w collection agents of tbs state. Under tha law the treasurer receives a certain per cent for the collection of stats moneys, this being fixed on a sliding ,CBj8i Ten per cent is to oe counwu ior tnt collection of tbe first $13,000, and as tj,8 amount Increases tbe per cent de . fl creases. Tbe county treasurers .nave construed this to mean tun i tney are w hnva 10 tmr cent on tbe first 11,000 OI state money and in the estimate of com pensation the county ana otner moneys collected by them was not to be counted. The attornov-irenorai ' uows mai an moneys collected must i counted. Th nriinlon of tho attorney-general Wtt KVba 0 thenuditor in the following letter which clearly explains tbe points Involved; . . . Lincoln, Neb., July at). u. u rooi Esq., Deputy Auditor ol l'uuuo Ac counts: My Dear Nlr-iour nivor oi July 13 with draft of vouchor attaciioa was duly received. The question upon which yon ask tho opinion oi mis oincs is substantially as follows: In making the computation to ascertain the amount of fees which a county tceasurer is entitled to for collecting state money, should the amount of money collected for tho county and from all sources up on which that official is entitled to fees be taken Into consideration? My an swer Is that they should, except the school funds. Hoction ) ol chapter vo of the compiled statutes makes this clear. It is therein provided that on ail moneys collected by the treasurer ne shall receive ten percent on the first $3,000, etc., and In computing the amount collected for the percental, all sums from whatever fund derived shall be included tOKether, except school funds. In the case ot the state vs. Iirodorick, 'J5 Neb., 520, the supreme court was asked to say whether or not the treasurer of Gaits county, in collecting the amount of fees which he was entitled to receive should separate the city money from the county and state funds and figure upon the city moneys alone, ine court , de cided that be could not: that be must calculate the amountof his fees upon tbe entire amount collected by him upon which be was entitled to receive lees, al ways excepting the school fund. Tbe same principle applies with respect to tbs question submitted t you. ery truly yours, C.J.BMrTii, Attorney-uenerai. This construction of the law will result In a considerable saving to tbe tax payers of the state. JUUOs. AND CLERKS OT CLCCTICM Must be appointed by the County Judgs Prom ths Several Parties.

Th law provides that th board may regulat the charges,but tost case will be mad and carried to ths courts where It will remain for sev eral year.

Hvnth That said unlust rates com filnituid of are f S ner month for deliver In r ninaanirne from residences In Omaha and about the sain rate at all other tilnrota In Nebraska. Eighth That such rates are unjust exorbitant and extortionate and an nnn.ll rsturn to respondent an amount greatly In xocss of what would lie a fair and reasonable return upon the worth of the whole plant In the state of Nubruska and the reasonable aud neces sary cost of operating oud maintaining the same. Ninth That such rate are unlust, ex orbltantnnd extortionate and annually return to respondent nn amount greatly in atrawa of what would be a fair, reason- abls and lust return upon the cost of 'atilnntin the state of Nebraska and tii MAsoVftbl and nesessory operating expense, , Tenth That the Statettii'lils in inn two foregoing paragraphs ate true with respect to that part of th plant located respectively In Omaha, Lincoln and each and every other city or town In Nebras ka where anv naft of said plant of re- iondent I located. fcleventb That also tns rate charged for delivering message between the dif ferent cities and towns ol nsbraska ar unjust, unreasonable aud ,iorbltant and also th revenue from sucD source greatlr contribute to th unreasonable profits of respondent company. i- f anw ihii lut rvwiiuiwna ia tenttteg to pay salaries and othsr i psna which are fictitious and unreason able, paid or pretended to be paid, for the sole purpoee of defrauding the sub aorilmrs lor tsh.phoue and iwopls of this atata hf swalling iieiises to try and nrevsnt a raduetlon of rates.
