The Matter of What Kind of Patients
Shall be Sent to the Norfolk Hospi
tal Will be Decided by the State
Board A Daby at the Hospital.
The Lincoln Evening News Is au
thority for tlio statement tlmt Superin
tendent Alilcn of the Norfolk hospital
prefers men patients to women and
f that Dr. Grocno wants to send women
to Norfolk , the conflicting dcHlrcs
forming a disagreement.
Dr. Alilcn was called up this mornIng -
Ing and he denied that there Is any
controversy between ho and Dr. Green
over the matter of which kind of pa
tients shall lie shipped to'the Norfolk
hospital. Dr. Alden says that he
needs the assistance that the ahlo hod-
led patients could give him very Imdly
In clearing the grounds , which are still
covered with debris from the fire
which destroyed the hospital three
years ago , and feels that by fairness
and right this class of patients should
bo sent to him . It Is a matter which
the board of public lands and buildings
will have to settle , and this board Is
expected to visit Norfolk as soon as
they return from Portland , whore they
helped celebrate Nebraska dny at the
exposition. In furnishing the cottages
It was done on the theory that one of
them only would be devoted to the
treatment of women patients , but the
doctor says they can bo rearranged If
the board so orders.
With the thirty-five women patients
who were brought from Lincoln on
Saturday was a boy baby seven months
old belonging to one of the patients.
A baby In an institution of this kind Is
rather an unusual thing but the little
fellow seems to be getting along all
right and Is the pet of the hospital.
As the Infant seemed to have no name
when ho came hero , he has been of
ficially designated as "Mascot" by the
doctor , and he seems to wear the cog-
nomcn well.
Following Is the story reported In
the Lincoln News :
There Is a surplus of female patients
at the Lincoln hospital for the Insane
which Is likely to go bogging for ac
commodations , unless Superintendent
Alden of the Norfolk asylum rcldnts
and concludes to take another ship
ment to his Institution. Saturday nl
7 o'clock thirty-five women in charge
of the Norfolk superintendent am
three attendants came down town on
the street cars and boarded a North
western train for Norfolk. This num
her will about fill one of the cottage
buildings , leaving two for occupancy
with the main building , which Is about
to be repaired for use. Dr. Greene
superintendent of the Lincoln hospi
tal , has a large numerical preponder
nnce of women patients and Insists
that Alden take his share , while the
latter demands that the next shipment
be men who can be used In straighten
Ing up the Institution and clearing the
grounds. That Is the rock on which
they have split and the question sttl
remains unsettled.
The total number of inmates at the
Lincoln Institution Is about G50. Of
these fully two-thirds are women. This
proportion has been due to the fact
that after the fire at Norfolk Dr
Kerns of the Hastings asylum for the
Incurables was unable to care for as
many women as men , with the resuli
that Dr. Greene Is overstocked with
females. Since the condition Is due to
the fire at Norfolk , he Is Inclined to
wards the view that Alden ought to
take them back. The reason for the
evident lack of desire to accommodate
women Is explained by the fact that
men can be used about the Institution
In various capacities , thereby reducing
the per capita cost and making the
good showings which the superlnten
dents under the present admlnlstratloi
are so desirous of making. They are
considered especially desirable by Dr
Alden , who 1ms an Immense lot o
work to do in getting the grounds into
shape. They can also bo employed in
i the vegetable garden and on the farms
thereby reducing the cost of employing
Badly Overcrowded.
Still another potent reason for the
desire of the Lincoln hospital author
Hies to reduce the female populatioi
Is the fact that the Institution is stil
overcrowded and it Is more difficult to
care for the women under such condl
tlons than It would bo to care for the
men. Steward Gllmoro stated tha
thirty-five or forty of the patients have
been sleeping on the floor recently
and the shipment Saturday wll
not relieve the pressure enough to give
all of them beds even now. Such con
dltlons are regarded as dangerous , not
withstanding the fact that many of th
patients are mild and easily controller
Just such overcrowding was rcspons
bio for the death of McCartney las
fall. It Is only by the use of the great
cst precautions that trouble Is avoidcc
and the conditions necessitate a con
slderablo Increase In the number o
attendants. At the present time , It I
stated , about the maximum number o
attendants are on the payrolls , and 1
will have to bo kept there as long a
the overcrowded conditions remains
That goes to swell the per capita cos
It Is estimated that there are 10 (
women at the Lincoln hospital who belong
long In the Norfolk district and ough
to be cared for at that institution
There arc , also , many men who hav
ecu sent from that district and under
lie old plan of distribution belong at
ho northern Institution.
Women Occupy the West Cottage Vis
iting Days Announced.
The thlrty-flvo women patients who
lave just been brought to the Insane
lospltal hero are now nicely housed In
ho west cottage of the Institution andre
ro getting along well. No men
mvo been moved Into cottages as yet
ut they will bo this week. In about
on days Dr. Alden contemplates mov-
ng another crowd of patients men
: ils time from Lincoln to Norfolk.
Visiting days at the hospital will bo
Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The Indians , Japanese , Turks and
Egyptians of a Circus.
Because they can not smoke cigar
ettes In the state of Indiana , on ac
count of the new law there , circus em
ployes arc threatening to leave. The
circus employes of the Pawnee Bill
show , while in Nebraska kept on smok-
ng cigarettes , in spite of the law. A
dispatch from Shelbyvllle , Ind. , says
that there was consternation In the
camp of the foreigners and Indians
with a circus here yesterday over the
order of the owner that the men and
women should comply with the In
diana cigarette law and cease smoking
while In the state. Many of the men
are under contract to remain with the
circus until the close of the season.
So desperate arc some of them for
their cigarettes that they threaten to
jump their contracts and go to other
states where they can be free to smoke
anything they please.
A meeting was hold and speeches
were made protesting against the law.
Finally It was decided to make a di
rect appeal to Governor Hanly , and
the following message was sent :
' "Governor J. Frank Ilnnly , Indian
apolis : The Turks , Egyptians , Japan
ese , Hindoos and Indians with a circus
hero have been deprived of cigarettes
What shall we do ? Wo nsk protection
"Chief Iron Bird. "
At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon
they were standing around In groups
awaiting the governor's answer. Lasl
night another meeting was held am
as the owner of the show insists thai
the laws of Indiana shall not bo violated
od the foreigners served formal notice
on him through their Interpreter , Iron
Bird , that unless tney are permitted
to smoke cigarettes , they would quli
the show so long as It remains In In
Governor Ilnnly has made no replj
to their request for protection In their
pursuit of happiness.

Matter Finally Gets Into the Courts ,
Where It Will be Settled.
What promised to bo a red hot BOH-
Ion of the board of county coinmls-
loners of Dakota county was nipped
n the bud early In the session by Shor-

rum doing any act or thing In tola-
Ion to the proposed clinngo of the
hannel of 131k crook which will result
n a change of Its natural course , or
rein diverting or causing to bo divert-
d the waters therefrom. Michael
I off man appears as plaintiff In the
ctlon with Jepson & Jepson of
Sioux City as his attorneys. The an-
wer day for the defendants Is Soptom-

noiith , which scorned to take a rcspon-
Iblllty off the shoulders of the com-
ulsslonors for the present. All
eemod glad to bo relieved. For a
lumber of years past , and more espe
cially last spring , Elk crook , which
tins from west of Jackson Into Omaha
crook and thence Into the Missouri
Ivor , overflows Its banks during the
spring rains and Inundates several
Kindred acres of farm lands which
otherwise would bo as valuable- any
n the county. Agitation ripened Into
action and on the 5th Inst. a petition
vas filed with the board of county coin-
nlsslonors by Thos. Sullivan , Fred
InrtclH and Thou. J. Hnrtnott , asking
ho commissioners to view the con-
lltlon existing , and asking them to
llvort the waters of Elk crook from
emptying into the Missouri river , and
change the channel so ( hey would
empty Into the Jackson lake , owing to
ho overflow , public health , conveni
ence and public welfare. The commis
sioners viewed the land and crook and
ind a survey made. Harry Goodfollow ,
I. A. Hall and a number of others filed
Ejections to the petition of Sullivan
ot al on the grounds that the commis
sioners had no jurisdiction , authority
or right to change the course of Elk
crook , said change would not be con-
luclvo to public health , convenience
or welfare ; that proposed route Is not
lost or most practicable ; that a major
ity of the members of the board of
county commissioners are disqualified
from acting on said matter by reason
) f their owning lands affected thereby ,
and by reason of their direct personal
nterests therein. It Is understood that
Ibis last objection Is the one on which
the Injunction was based. The file of

The- Norfolk Business colloRO has
lettoi prospects than over before al

from outsldo of town for the term of

September than have ever boon In
school before. Ebon Perry , who has

stitution , has bean quite successful In

enrollments. This Is nil very encnur-
iglng to Prof. Brake , who Is a most
thorough teacher and does excellent
work , but he finds himself confronted
ty a new problem , and that Is to find
ilaces for students to board. There
s no regular students' boarding house
n Norfolk and families of residents
must be depended upon for a tlmo at
east to take care of the people who
como bore to attend school. Many
louses have extra rooms which could
iust as well bo occupied as not , and It
would well pay any family so situated
.o take one or more students. One or
two at a table will cost practically
nothing extra , as there Is always
enough for one more , while two board
ers would pay the grocery bill of the
iverage small family. By filling up
the vacant rooms , the families can not
only benefit themselves but they can
confer a great favor upon the business

the women of the entire country to
exorcise their influence toward seciir-
ng a worthy successor to President
Roosevelt three years henco.
"Already wo have organized the
Wisconsin Women's La Folletto league
which , when wo have raised sufficient
money , will branch out , and then prob
ably wo will establish headquarters In
Chicago. The movement Is Intended
to appeal to republican and democrats
alike. Our theory Is that a man of

And Thus Saved Her Father From BeIng -
Ing Struck and Killed.
Ills daughter's ability to catch a
swift ball saved aged Richard D.
Unities from receiving painful Injuries
at a ball game In Philadelphia. Halnos
is an enthusiastic "fan" and attends
ball games regularly. Ho always Is
accompanied by his daughter , Mary
Halnes , 17 years old.
The two were sitting In the front
row of seats in the grand stand to the
left of the pitcher's box. The scat was
not protected by a wire netting. A
swift foul flew straight toward the seat
occupied by Mr. Halnes.
The girl sprang from her seat and
stretching forth both hands caught the
ball. It stung greatly and brought
tears to the her eyes , but she clung to
it. The ball would have struck her
father squarely.

Canine Has Habit Strongly Formed of
Taking Things From Neighbors.
John Huyck , a well known citizen
of Sioux Falls , Is the owner of a bird
dog which has a mania for stealing ,
and BO far as the range of the arti
cles stolen Is concerned , the dog holds
the canine record for thefts.
The animal was raised from a pup
py by Huyck. His degeneracy com
menced to manifest itself some time
ago , when members of the family
would find upon the porch ot the
Huyck domicile such things as rub
bers , shoes , , pieces of rope , and the

added to the collection. In fact , every
thing of a portable nature that could
ho carried by the dog found Itn way
to the Huyck homo.
As tltoso things were taken front
residents of the Immedlato neighbor
hood , It was not a dltllcult matter to
rcNlore the accumulations to the right
ful owner.
But the limit wan reached the other
day when the dog brought up to tllo
back door a kettle containing a pot
roant , which wan iitoiimlng hot. It IH
supposed the kettle wan placed out
doors so the meat could cool off , and
that the dog , attracted by the ncont of
meat , was drawn to the spot. After
proceeding to InvestIgate the dog ovl-
detitly found the meat too hot to re

The Great Northern Is Already Incor

Several corporation lawyers have

has been stated that the now line could
not exercise the right of eminent do
