Senator Millard and Representative
McCarthy called on the president yes

pardon of 13. A. and Edward Helmut's.
Senator Mlllard did the talking and
told the president that by reason of
.good service the Rcimors would ho

said ho objected to pardoning persons
from the penitentiary. Ho could
see his way clear to extending
ocntlvo clemency to the Re.ltners , .
If the reports of good conduct wore
justified ho would by executive order
.restore them to citizenship at the
end of the year.

self. "I have not thought particularly
about the marshalshlp , " said Senator
Mlllard. "That matter I will take up
when I get home. "
ROOF TRUSSES BEING RAISED
First Step Toward the Roofing of the
United States Court House is Now
[ From Ftldny's Dnlly. ]
Progress on the United States court
liouso has reached the roof , and if
the weather Is at all favorable the
building will be under cover within
a few weeks. The great trusses that
will support the roof are now being
raised and several of them arc In
place on the west end of the building
where the cornice work has been com
pleted. The work of flnlshlne the
cornice on the east end is progressing -
ing and will bo completed In a few
days if the weather does not inter
fere to prevent.
With the roof on and the building
covered it will be an easy matter to
shut out the weather and the work of
completing the interior can be carried
forward in spite of the rigors of the
elements. Already the work of put
ting in the joists that will support the
floor Is well under way and being
carried forward with that on the out
side of the building.
Superintendent Williams has just
" ' received word that his company has
secured the contract for the erection
of a waterworks plant at Helena ,
Mont. , the contract price being $579-
000. Owing to the severity of the
weather in that part of the country
it is not expected the work of con
struction will begin before next
I spring. The company Is just complet
ing a government building there at
a cost of $275,000.
LOSES NINE HEAD OF CATTLE
H. M. Springer of the St. Clalr Valley
Loses Stock in Mysterious Man
ner Was In Hailed District.
C. J. Hlbbon of South Norfolk has
received a letter from H. M. Spring
er , a prominent farmer of the St. Glair
valley in Antelope county southwest
U of Tilden in which Mr. Springer re
counts a further calamity. Ho is in
the district that had been hall-swept
early in the summer , ruining his crops
and now comes the loss of nine head
of cattle from some mysterious dis
ease , possibly corn-stalk poisoning.
One of the animals was a handsome
thoroughbred heifer that had been
purchased at the Daniel Kerr sale of
fancy stock recently held In Norfolk.
Mr. Springer notified the state veter
inarian of his loss , but ho was unable
to come up and sent Dr. C. A. McKIm
of this city to look after the matter.
Dr. McKIm was puzzled , but took a
stomach from one of the animals
which will bo sent to the state vet
erinarian for analysis. The cattle died
after a sickness of thirty-six hours ,
nnd coming on top of the severe hall
.storm Is a hard loss for Mr. Springer.

SHOULD REMEMBER THE POSTMEN
Christmas Is a Good Time to Show
Appreciation to Him for His
"Now that It Is about Christmas
time , " said a business man this morn-
Itiir. "I think wo who are served so
, , " * " the year round ,
li s'-'t" ' blHtorinil
t. , b < IRltvlx-l the rural route
boys who are not KO well paid as they
really deserve. It Is the custom In
most cities to remember those men
very generously at Christmas tlmo.
This Is the first year that Norfolk lias
had city carriers and it Is the first
year that the farmers of north No-
jraska generally have had rural car
riers. They arc doing as much for
; hts country as anything that has been
.nstalled in many a year and I , for
one , would favor doing something to
show appreciation. "
The postman is the steadiest man
on earth. Not a day except Sunday
goes by when ho is not out , rain , snow
or blizzard , delivering to his patrons
the mail for which they are waiting.
Mo one does more for them nnd they
arc not loser one penny by his ser
vice. The government pays him but
none too well and it Is not a bad mo
ment to think of him.
TWO MEN AND TWO GUNS.
How It Feels to be Halted by Men
Bearing Fierce Weapons. |
All sorts of surmises and shivery
fancies lilt through a person's brain
in nn instant when ho is suddenly
confronted by a couple of men with
a loaded gun apiece In a lonely place ,
and an order to stop comes from their
lips. Is It robbery ? an arrest ? a joke ?
are the men perfectly sane ? are
they enemies horse thieves ? officers ?
arc the guns real ? and if they are real
are they loaded ? and are they likely
to go off ? These and a few others ,
and perhaps a few more or possibly
a few less flitted through the mind
of P. A. Dcoler yesterday when ho
was driving out near the sugar fac
tory. He saw two men with a gun
apiece lined up on either side of the
road which ho was traveling , and as
lie approached closer ho was ordered
to stop , when lie perceived that one
of the men was Game Warden Hainoy
and the other his deputy.
The officer thought that perhaps
Mr. Heeler had been hunting and was
in for making an investigation , but
when it was found that ho had not
been hunting the officers bade him
go his way in peace.
NELIGH'S ' NEW PARK GOES WELL

In the city over night. Ho had come
down from Plorco to spend the night
In Norfolk and returned to Pierce at
noon today. In speaking of Nellgh's
new park , the judge said , "Wo are do
ing a little work on the park every
day. Wo have connected the two banks
of the river , which cuts the land , by
a pair of suspension bridges. The
cables wore donated by Mr. Gllman
so that we are not out much and It
makes a very superior addition to our
No city in the state can boast of a

South Dakota Democrats Want to
Start It Along In March.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , Dec. 8. The
members of the Mlnnehaha Democrat
ic club of this city have declared In
favor of an early convention to elect
delegates to the next democratic na
tional convention. At a meeting of
the club members it was decided to
present to the democratic state com
mittee a request that a state conven
tion bo hold not later than next
March for the selection of delegates
to represent South Dakota at the na
tional convention. While the demo
crats do not expect to cut much fig
ure In the approaching campaign in
South Dakota , the leaders say they
want a lang campaign so they can bo
heard on state nnd national issues ,
their purpose being to make as good
a showing for the party as possible.
It was also decided to urge the state
central committee to hold , the state
convention In Sioux Falls.
Local Wholesale Man Talks
From His Own Experience.
SAYS BUSINESS BRINGS RATE.
Has'Found ' That If a Guarantee of So
Much Business Can be Made to Rail
roads , Reduced Rates Invariably
Follow Norfolk a Point.
IFtnm Fililnv'n Pnllv 1
"Speaking of the freight rate ques
tion for Norfolk , " said a prominent
wholesale commission mini In the
city today , and one- who has made a
decided success of his own particular
Imslness In a wholesale * way , "It has
been my experience ( hat the way to
got a freight rate Is to llrst get the
mslnesH. 1 have found with my own
mslncss and I have observed from
other lines that If you can gel enough
mslness toarraut a rate and that
f you can guarantee a railroad com
pany a certain amount of patronage
n a given length of time , you will
get a rate accordingly.
"Norfolk Is conceded as one of the
nest excellent points In the west for
Hstrlbutlng. All that prevents It news
s a satisfactory freight rate. And
the way to get this Is to assure the
ailroads that we will give them say
$100,000 worth of business a year.
"In any line of commerce , an onor-
nous bulk of business always brings
prices to a closer margin than small
accounts. For Instance , the merchant
who buys by the bushel pays a higher
rate than the merchant who buys by
the carload lot. Hut If the one who
> uys by the bushel wore to go to his
wholesaler and offer to buy a carload
a week , there Is no question In the
world about his getting a cheaper
Has Had Experience.
"In our wholesale business we have
md experience along this very propo
sition. When wo started In we paid
much higher than wo do now. The
reason for the reduction was that wo
guaranteed to ship out so many car
loads of goods every year. Other
Ilrms in Norfolk have done the same
thing. The Sugar City Cereal mills
ship their breakfast food all over the
world. They certainlyget a rate that
Is as good as other cities for they
place their Wheatllug on the market
cheaper than any other similar food.
The sugar factory sends out mammoth
shipments of Its products every year.
It certainly doesn't do it nt a loss for
It places its article on the market of
the world as cheap as any other fac
tory In the country. Our produce ,
too , goes out with the same material
from other points and we have as
good a rate as anyone.
"I have talked with freight agents
from various points and I fool con
fident that If Norfolk would go to
the railroads with a guarantee of w >
much business every year , wo would
get rates that would justify wholesale
The Harvester Change ,
"The Piano transfer from Norfolk
to Sioux City has been cited as an ox-
uuplo of a killing rate. For years
the Piano people maintained an of
fice hero and made money nl It.
Now they are In a trust. They belong
to the International Harvester com
pany and they will got the business
no matter where they are located.
They already have an office in Sioux
City and the saving of the expense
of one office force counted. It surely
wasn't a freight rate that forced them
to discharge 7,500 men this week , yet
It all comes In the same moment.
And furthermore , I have It on good
authority that they have a 5-year
lease on their warehouse hero ami
I'm willing to wager that harvesting
machinery will bo shipped out of Nor
folk next summer just as It was this.
Must Get Together.
"If wo could get together if the
commercial club or some other organi
zation of Norfolk business men would
take the matter up just as they do In
Omaha and Kansas City nnd every
where else , nnd If we would give a
bonus of so much to get a wholesale
house started , the rate , on a guar
antee of so much business , would bo
bound to follow. And the business ,
with an ideal location such as Norfolk ,
would come of itself. "
Following Is a clipping from the
Omaha Dee showing that the business
men of Omaha are in very much the
same predicament and showing that
they are going to establish the busi
ness and get the rate :
It was decided at the meeting of
the Comemrcial club hold last night
to hold a meeting next Tuesday evening -
ing for the further consideration of
the promotion of the grain exchange
and if necessary weekly meetings
thereafter until success In the estab
lishment of a grain market is assured.
President Smith , who opened the
meeting said : "Tho Commercial club
has done a great deal of good since
its organization but not nearly so
much good as It should have done.
I think that this city , nt the present
moment , 4s In a condition where It
can bo pushed to the front very rapIdly -
Idly by good work on the part of the
Commercial club. I , for one , do not
need any further recommendation for
the establishment of a grain market
hero than to hear the howls which
are going up In Kansas City at Iho
bare mention of the project. That
convinces me that It Is a good thing
for us. The rates are such on the
Union Paulllo that grain originating
on that line comes to Omaha , but wu
got very little grain from points on
the Uurllngtou or Northwestern. If
the rates were right almost all the
grain pioduced on Ihoso Hues would
llnd a market In thin city.
Should go After What is Wanted.
"I do not believe lu lighting the
railroads If It can bo helped. Hut I
think we need n little of the spirit
which Is shown by Kansas City lu goIng -
Ing after what we want. They use
any method to gnln their point down
there , and If lighting will nerve host ,
light. That Is what we want to do.
Slnc'o the Missouri Pacific announced
a now set of rates for grain shlpmonls
to the south I understood thai Kansas
City men have been alter that Hue
to force a restoration.
"Th ( > grain exchange needs more
ncmhers and I think with good work
he membership should IK ) Increased
iy the first of the year to 250. All
nemliers of the Commercial club
Klioiild assist In securing new mem-
icrs for the exchange. When we have
subscribed to past enterprises wo
mvo felt like we were giving our
iioney away , but wo should not feel
hat way In this Instance. I think the
shares will ultimately bo a good In
vest mont. 1 think If wo put our
shoulders to the wheel the population
if Omaha can bo doubled In the next
eu years. "

its efforts arc now directed. Not only
will the paper bo built up to the ad
vantage of Norfolk readers and ad
vertisers , but It will bo of advnntago

should bo brought Into closer relation

publisher to better the service and
look for a wider field of effort. People

TO SET ASIDE A BARGAIN DAY
Merchant Suggests Specialties to In
duce People to Come to Nor
"It strikes mo , " remarked a Norfolk
iiislucss man recently , "that Norfolk
iierchiints could well afford to set
isldo one day out of every week say
Wednesday for Instance upon which
they quota especially low bargains to
the out of town trade. Wo could af-
brd to cut prices on that day down
to about cost In ; order to induce thu
people from the tributary territory
who nro now going through to Omaha ,
to stop off hero and make their pur
chases. Norfolk has , of course , just
is largo stocks In most lines nsOnmha
or any other city. The people fall to
appreciate this because they haven't
been shown. And hi order to show
them we must Induce them to como
In by some special mode.
"It would not be discriminating
against Norfolk pations a bit to make
these offers to the out of town pee
ple. It would bo doing a great deal
of good for Norfolk by getting people
In the habit of coming and wo could
cliargo it to advertising the city. Our
location Is entitled to moro than wo
get and we ought to go after it. "
What to do With the Estrays.
Many farmers do not understand
the onlray laws and the following
synopsis of the laws prepared by the
Honkleman Chronicle will bo found
of value as It covers every point In
n condensed form :
"Kstrays can only bo taken up
when they are trespassing on your
property , nnd forty-eight hours after
they are taken up It Is the duty of
the person so doing to send n brief
description of the animal and date of
taking up to n justice of the peace of
the township for recording , for which
the Justice of the peace Is entitled tea
a fee of twenty-five cents. If the an
imal Is not reclaimed within ten days
after that , the law requires the send
ing of another description to the county - .
ty clerk with a fee of twenty-five
cents for recording. After ton days
more have elapsed the ostray should
bo advertised for five weeks In a news
paper of general circulation In the
county. The advertising fee allowed
by law Is ? 3 for one or three animals
nnd $1 for each animal after the third.
Six months thereafter If a hog , sheep ,
calf or colt under one year old at the
tlmo of taking up , It becomes the prop
erty of the party taking It up. If the
animal Is a horse or cow over ono
year old then at the end of six months
the justice of the peace appoints two
disinterested appraisers to appraise It
and It Is advertised and sold to the
highest bidder. The proceeds above
the bill of keeping the animal and
the costs Incurred go Into the public
