THURSDAY , APRIL 22 , 1909.
District court is in session this
week and our town has been full
of people all week. A number of
non-resident attorneys are in town
and the numerous cases called
many litigants together. Judge
Westover is on the bench.and J.
D. Scott is his court reporter.
The wheels of justice grind switf ly
enough for those who fear the
clutches of the law. The convic
tions are less numerous than in
former times and the civil and di
vorce cases take the prominence.
Among the numerous divorce
cases there was one in which Val
entine people were more than
usually exercised. A story that
goes into the life of a public of
ficial and tells of his acts in pri-
vite life with his family. His
conduct in the years that our people
ple have known him has not been
admirable and aside from the pub
lic position that he now holds people
ple would not endure his presence
at their hearthstones , nor mingle
with him from choice of associates ,
Valentine people have generously
overlooked many things that to
them appeared not the best , and
in fact our people are generously
inclined , but if they endure such
as this without some show 9f re
sentment we might believe that
calloused subservience to brutal
tyrants was a yoke they cared not
to unloose. A divorce is a relief
from galling chains that bind the
faithful to a false idol.
It also sets the villain free.
To roam again in pastures green ;
Another maid by that decree
May 3'et be his as will b/e seen.
Some say that he again will wed.
And for this reason thinks his mate ,
Is not his equal , and his head
Has swelled a little up to date.
When he came here sometime ago ,
Fewpther _ men were then more true :
, But time has changed affections so ,
That now the air is black and blue.
The great pretentious and display.
Stand foremost now as a rebuke :
The pomp of building then betray.
No house was good enough for Luke. j
Then what has come upon the scene.
To so demoralize his view- :
"Has he another in his scheme.
To bid his family thus adieu ?
If such be true then she may fall
A victim like unto the first.
And when her cup is lilled with gall.
With vinegar he'll quench her thirst.
OUR LINCOLN LETTER.
( Special Correspondence. )
Lincoln , Neb. , April 20 , De
spite the constant criticism of an !
adverse partisan press at the state
capitol during the entire legisla
tive session the people are inform
ing themselves concerning meas
ures enacted into laws by a demo
cratic legislature and signed by a
democratic governor , and history
will record that the 1009 session
passpd more good , wholesome
laws , measures that will distribute
more equitably the burden of taxa
tion , and at the same time correct
a greater number of prevalent ev
ils than has any former legislative
body in the history of the state.
it should be borne in mind that
every platform pledge of the demo
cratic party was fiulfilled , and the
legislature went further and in ad
dition passed an unusually large
number of meritorious bills. It
may be truthfully said also that no
legislature in the history of the
state ever passed so few so-calied !
"freak measure ? , " and no vicious i
or unjust laws were enacted.
There has been a kieat deal of !
x * tmtmsm&P& ; &
fault finding from a republican
source concerning the labors ol
the session. It is a common thing
l.o hear the comment that the bank
guarantee bill really amounts to
nothing at all , and falls far from
the mark of fulfilling the platform
pledge of the party , but if you
have followed the metropolitan
press you will have observed that
a gathering of the "big bankers"
was held at Omaha last week to
devise ways and raise funds to de
feat the purpose and object of the
law , notwithstanding the fact that
at least nine-tenths of the people
of the state of Nebraska today ,
with the political situation remov
ed , are strongly in favor of the
guaranty law. The highest com
pliment that could possibly be
paid to the measure is to have
ihese "big bankers , " the men who
want to use the people's money
for nothing , and if any losses oc
cur make the people stand it , liter
ally tear up the earth in their ef
forts to defeat the bill.
In order that the state railway
commission , the courts and the
public revenue powers of the state
may have something upon which
to base the earning capacity , a
basis for dividend earnings as well
as for the purpose of taxation , of
the public service corporations of
the state , a physical valuation bill
was passed , carrying with it an
appropriation of , § 10,000. The
governor has supervision of the
work and has already been in con
sultation with the railway com
mission , outlining a campaign with
a view of first valuing the rail
roads of the state. This bill is one
that will bring great relief to the
people in the way of equitable
rates , and afc the same compel the
railroads to pay their just proportion
tion of the taxes.
"As a companion measure to the
physical valuation bill the govern
or by special message had a law
passed requiring all corporations
hereafter organized in the state
and having for its purpose the
placing of stock upon the market ,
to first receive the consent of the
state railway commission by show
ing that the property and assets
of the corporation is adequate and
sufficient upon which to base the
stock issue. This pill will in the
future prevent a great deal of
stock-jobbing and swindling trans
itions in the floating of watered
The democratic party in Ne
braska has placed itself above the
control of the so-called liquor in
terests of the state by enacting
more legislation , having for its ob
ject the control of the sale of liq
uor , than all previous legislation
i i Nebraska for a quarter of a cen
tury. A bill was passed prohibit
ing the sale of liquor to a person
who has been treated under the
provisions of the dipsomaniac law ;
another making it a misdemeanor
to drink liquor on trains. Gov.
Shallenberger vetoed a bill which
will prevent the sale of liquor at
Ft. Crook and in this he was sus
tained by the legislature without a
dissenting vote. With the clos
ing hours of the session came the
"daylight" saloon law , making a
record on liquor legislation that
has won the encomiums and ad
miration of the great masses of

AZINE has come back to
towrron a visit * , after nearly
two1 \ Veeks'absence. . He
says he hopes to stay quite
a while with a number of
the best families ; he brings
Hvith him a lot of new
stories good ones ; his
health is much improved.
For sale by
closing law , and they are confined
principally to Omaha , express
themselves now as being entirely
satisfied with the Slocumb law ,
without this amendment , but it is
not too vain to indulge the thought
that it will yet receive the appro
bation of those who worship at the
shrine of the Czar at the city hall
in. Nebraska's metropolis.
In all 202 bills were passed by
the legislature and signed by the
governor , 78 of which originated
in the senate and 124 in the house.
To the credit of the legislature
so recently adjourned it may be
said that it appropriated over
§ 700,000 for normal schools , in ex
cess of any sum heretofore ap
propriated , and the same spirit for
adequate provision for the educa
tional interests of our splendid
state was shown in all the appro
priations for carrying on and im
proving the schools of Nebraska.
A delegation of the old soldiers
from the Soldiers and Sailors
Home at Milford called upon the
governor Friday and entered a
vigorous protest against the ac
tion of some of the republican
state officials who are attempting
to deprive them of the money ap
propriated by the recent legisla
ture to reimburse them for the
funds so unjustly taken from them
under the guise of "Rule 17 , "
adopted under the republican ad
ministration of the past two years.
