amount received during December ,
$25-000 was fees paid under protest
by corporations who thought they
stand a show of beating the state cor
poration license fee provided for by
the last legislature In tno King bill.
Nearly $70,000 was collected In fees
under that hill since the act went into
effect , including $2o,000 paid under
protest. The supreme court has up
held the law and corporations that
did not pay November 30 will lose
their charters. About 4,000 different
corporation on the books of the secre
tary of state are shut out and n list
of their names will be forwarded by
the secretary of state to county
clerks. A few corporations appear not
to have heard of the law , though the
daily newspapers have frequent ac
counts of It from time to time since
last April. This Is taken as proof
that newspapers have little or no In
fluence and that they are seldom rend.

one telling of the amount of Insur

devote his time exclusively to the in
Saloons or No Saloons.
Whether the question of saloons erne
no saloons will be submitted to the

different points and the federal courts
in Nebraska and Kansas have en
joined the laws of these respective

you suggest , it seems to me highly
to be desired , that the lawyers hav
ing in charge the cases for the differ
