NORFOLK DELEGATES TO OMAHA
PLEASANT TIME ; NEW IDEAS

speeches , one at the banquet on "Tho

given Wednesday noon. Norfolk was

Among other things , tbo clubs

Sewer at Albion.
Albion News : At the request of u
number of elll/ons , Mayor Graham
called a citizens' mass meeting at the
court house , last Friday evening , for
the purpose of discussing the sewer
proposition , and to llnd out if the pub
lic sentiment was In favor of the city
council going ahead In the construc
tion of a sewer the coming season.
There was a goodly number of repre
sentative citizens present , and there
was not a single dissenting voice to
tbo plan of putting In a sewerage sys
tem this season. The necessity IB
acknowledged by all and our ability
Is admitted , so that the only point to
decide Is that wo will. This meeting
decided it so far as It could by passIng -
Ing a resolution requesting the city
council to proceed in the matter. It
was tbo general opinion at the moot
ing that It would bo necessary to vote
bonds for n sewer system , but Investi
gation since leads to the belief that
it will not bo necessary. Whichever
plan Isadopted , , it seems to bo appar
ent tluA the people are in a mood to
endorse it and back up the city au
thorities In prompt action.
If yon bavo experienced "many a
slip 'twlxt the cup and the lip , " and
have had enough of such casualties ,
Insure against them , in your minor af
fairs , by rending the want ads .

THERE IS NOT ENOUGH IN ICE
HOUSES TO RUN SUMMER.
MAY HAVE TO SHIP SOME IN
ce Men In Norfolk Hope That There
May be Another Cold Wave Within
a Few Days , When a Little More
Ice Will be Cut.
[ From Wednesday's Unlly. ]
If a slight cold snap would como up
his week , as the Ice men hope It may ,
Norfolk will have nearly a normal sup-
) ly of Ice lo run through the summer ,
nsl al present Iho supply Is sborl ,
lone of Iho Ice houses of Iho clly bo
ng filled to their capacity.
The variable weather of the wlnler
las been such that it lias been impos-
ible for Iho regular summer supply
o be hnrvesled. Several limes Ihe
comcn have gollen Iholr harvesl un-
lor way when a warm wave put a
complete slop lo It. The last cold
spoil promised lo remedy Iho earlier
lisappolnlnienls of the season and
hen came Ihe snow , which put a short
stop to most of the operations. Deere -
ore the covering of snow bad been
cleared away warm weather set In and
ho last Ice put up was only about six
nches In thickness.
Just as Iho slluntlon stands today ,
f no more cold weather conies , there
vlll not bo enough Ice in Norfolk to
un through the summer. Waldo &
Jlllenbeck have about half of their
co put up , but have nlno inches on
their pond and are waiting only for
i cold snap in order to cut It. Fred
Schelly has about two-thirds of his
crop up , but will put up more with
cold weather. Oertwlg's now Ice
louse has but seven loads in it.
Mosl of the private Ice vaults are
filled bul llioy will not relieve the sit
uation among those who buy tholr ice
from tbo wagon day by day. What
ever they have Ihey will nso them
selves and , unless a cold snap comes ,
the Icemen will either have to curtail
tbo consumption throughout the sum
mer or else ship in ice from time to
time during Ilio summer. A number
of men , who are largo users of Ice
declare that the supply now In loca'
Ice houses will not last llirough July
Waldo & Dillenbeck said loday that
they bellovo a cold wave will come
the latter part of this week or the first
of next , and they are Irnsllng lo Ibis
to cut their pond. Mr. Schelly sail
that the crop will be short unless more
cold weather comes , In which case
more Ice will bo put up.
Stanton Picket : There was another
big fight at a sale oul In Haymow pre
clncl lasl Friday a week ago which is
said lo have been oven more fierce and
more blood was spilled lhan al Iho
one of Iho Wednesday previous , men
lion of which was made in these col
umns last week. It Is stated that some
who were opposed to the Miller broth
ers went to the sale reinforced and
armed with clubs for the express pur
pose of doing them up , and thai while
the mill was on the Millers got posses
slon of the clubs and used them over
the heads of their assailants. There
were sonic split heads and more sore
ones. Threals are being made as lo
what will be done when the factions
meet again and some are predicting
thai Iho number of combatants wil
bo increased on both sides and tha
the trouble will continue until someone
ono is killed.

YERKES ESTATE EXAGGERATED
Traction Magnate's Property Will be
Far Short of Fifteen Millions.
The Chicago Chronicle says : Start
ling reports have reached the ears of
Chicago financiers that the reputed
$15,000,000 estate of the late Charles
T. Yerkes is fictitious. That it will
not aggregate more lhan $0,000,000 is
a report credited by Chicago bankers
who have had occasion to make an
Investigation of the former traction
Since tbo death of Mr. Yerkes , much
of the supposed values of tracllon
stocks In Chicago and London are de
clared to have dwindled to an enor
mous degree. This situation has
placed in jeopardy the gigantic New
York hospital project which Iho lalo
traction king bad provided for in his
will , as a monument to his memory.
That Iho estate of Mr. Yerkes could
not truthfully bo quoted at $15,000,000
was admitted last nlghl by Allorney
Clarence Knight , who represenled Mr.
Yerkes during Ihe closing years of his
life and who drew Iho will disposing
of his properly.
"There never was any aulhorizalion
for the tsalement that the Yerkes es
tate would amount to $15,000,000 , " ho
said. "There was nothing In the will
to Indicate thai such was the aggre
gate value of the estalo. As lo wheth
er the estate will amount to more or
less than $15,000,000 I have nothing
to say. "
