Tbo conference which bad boon
planned between railroad preBldenta
mid tbo president of tbo United States
with regard to tbo railway situation ,
came In a little tblrty-llvo minute be
tween Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Mellon ,
president of tbo Now York , Now Ha
ven and Hartford railroad. It result
ed In nothing new excepting the state
ment thai something dollnlto from the
white bouso may bo expected within
the next few months , since the presi
dent Is to make four speeches between
now and tbo llrst of Juno. Noltbei
the president nor Mr. Mellon consent
ed to discuss their Interview.
It Is apparent that Mr. Hoosc-volt
took the Interview more as n chanc'o
| tu quiz the callers regarding the railroad -
road situation than an opportunity to
seek out means of relieving the rail
way men's anxiety over present con
"When bo has made up his mind
niul Is ready to toll the public Just
what his attitude Is on particular ques
tions and speclllcally on the railroad
Issue , ho will do so. " This Is the re
assuring message from Washington.
And so , until ho Is ready , wo shall
have to wait for a dollnlto Idea on
the railway matter.
One of the marked results of the
present political and Industrial situ
ntlon , has been tbo Increased willing
ness and even desire of many llnan
clcrs and railway heads to discuss
questions of the day for publication
It Is a striking sign of the Increasing
appreciation of the modern newspaper
ns a means pf getting facts before the
people which will have weight will
them in forming their opinions.
For years men like Mr. Harrlmai
fled from newspaper representatives
Today they lire searching for reporters
who will take their statements. The >
have come to appreciate the value o :
the press In carrying messages to
the public which will have a bearing
upon their views.
President Roosevelt has built up
much of his fame by the studied use
of newspaper publicity. The wondei
Is that many railway men who are Jusi
now beginning to give their sides o
questions to the public through tat
public prints , had not discovered the
value of this sort of thing before now
Indeed these public men might wel
take a lesson from many of the bust
ness Institutions of the country whlcl
have built up with newspaper publl
city as their promoting agencies
Many a soda cracker has brought mill
Ions to Its makers as a result of news
paper publicity judiciously and sclent !
flcally used.
Generalizations won't got results
Railway men and presidents , as wel
ns makers of baking powder , mus
glvo hard , sound , convincing facts am
arguments If they are to carry weigh
with the public. Hut whore these de
tailed and logical arguments arc given
the world Is won , providing the argu
ments be based on Justice and right
This awakening to the value of
newspaper publicity Is Just beginning
Merchants have to a certain exten
recognized the power of the press li
carrying convincing store messages
and arguments for years. They are
coming more and' more to know the
effect. They are coming more ant
more to know that sound arguments
properly set forth , will carry weight
and get results.
The true worth of publicity as a
means of reaching the public is get
.v ting recognition It never got before.
The attitude of the administration
and of many of the great thinking
men of the nation today with regard
to the need of greater federal control
carries with It , as a side and Inseparable
rablo doctrine , the view that United
States senators ought not to bo elect
ed by a direct vote.
The Idea of the fathers who built
the constitution was that members of
II the tipper house of the national con
gress ought to bo far enough removed
rom ft direct vote to be protected
roiu momentary prejudices and from
infnlr popular Keittlment which might
spring up mid wlpo out really able
mil efficient statesmen from the sen
ile ,
It Is admitted on many sides today
hat stale legislatures have gone to a
severe extreme In much of th lr In-
liislrlal legislation. They have ex
ceeded the most drastic work of an
energetic congress under the giild-
nice of the president. The fact that
nany hundreds of bills Introduced at
t session should all attack In one
, vny mid another the same Industries ,
shows that there has been an exces
sive desire to venture Into radical
In the heat of the excitement no
ompanylng this desire to attack , no
man , however capable , could be elect
ed to the United States senate by a
direct vote who bad not Jumped to
tbo crest of popular sentiment wave
for his ride Into olllco , A sterling
statesman , differing In his views from
the extreme position taken by the gen
eral public , no matter how conscien
tious nor how well founded on sound
political economy , would stay at homo
If a direct vote , cast at the moment ,
wore to decide.
Calmer Judgment , a year afterward ,
would bring conviction that a really
worthy representative had been tossed
aside. *
A positive stand , taken In the sen *
ate , which did not chance to coincide
with the Idea held by the majority at
homo at the moment , thought It might
ho the wise position , would cost a
toga. More deliberate Judgment , how
ever , on the part of a fewer men who
could got closer together In discussing
the situation and who could more tru
ly analyze because of longer period
for consideration and Investigation ,
might show that the statesman In
question bad earned his re-election by
the very attitude which , put to popu
lar vote on the Instant , would mean
his cruclllxlon.
The Idea that federal control Is
more conservative and more reason
able than state regulation , subject to
bias and bitter prejudice , Is a twin
brother to the doctrine which our fore
fathers uphold when they voted to
allow the congressional lower house
representatives to bo elected by di
rect vote , In order to get local color ,
but to remove the senatorial toga from
punishment for deeds done conscien
tiously and with judicious soundness
which , though It might be momentar
ily misconstrued and thus cost a scat ,
would prove In the long run to bo
logical and right.
Mr. Sturgeon from now on will bo
at home all of the time. In the past
ho has been out on the road much of
the time but from now on his business
will keep him in Norfolk , so that ho
could attend to the duties of the may
or at all times. Mr. Sturgeon has been
In business In Norfolk fin- nineteen
years. Ho has been one of the pioneer
neer business men to build up this
city. Always a booster , ho has pushed
ahead and helped to make Norfolk
known In the northwest. He has never
nm for an olllce In his life. Ho takes
the nomination with no strings fit-
Inched. Ho promises to do his best to
give the city a good administration.
His friends have confidence in his
promise and believe ho will be Nor
folk's next mayor.
Chris Anderson , nominee for city
clerk , Is a Norfolk young man. He
has grown up in this city. Despite his
protest he was made the nominee , be
cause ho was recognized ns a young
business man of ability. Ho has a
very largo circle of friends and ho
will bo elected. The republicans , hav
ing defaulted in this oftlco last year ,
are entitled to it this spring. Mr. An
derson Is a fit candidate in every way ,
clean-lived , honorable and painstak
ing. Ho will make an excellent city
clerk , reliable In every way and nn
honor to the olllce. ,
Mr. Ktesau was nominated for city
treasurer by acclamation. Conversant
with city business as a result of past
terms In the council , ho was selected
by the convention as a proper candi
date for this Important ofllce. A care
ful and conservative business man , his
qualification for the place will appeal
to the voters with force.
For police Judge , Mr. Elseloy was n
worthy nominee. An old pioneer In
Norfolk , who has done much to bulk ]
the city Into Us present prosperity , ho
Is now entitled to this compliment at
the hands of his neighbors. Ho has
served well In the capacity of Justice
of the peace , and Is lilted for the po
sition of police Judge.
At this time , with the serious prob
lem of rebuilding Norfolk's high school
structure which was last Sunday de
stroyed by fire , the Interests of the
school district and the city require
keenest interest In the management of
the affairs placed In the hands of the
board of education. With particular
attention to this emergency demand ,
the republican city convention select
ed Its candidates for the board of edu
cation election. This Is one of the
positions which has no Inducement to
offer , but It Is roallml that It is n
duty for able unit to accept tbo place
and that the olllce should bo passed
around In order that the burden be
not bunched. Two attorneys nnd a
keen business man Messrs. Tyler.
Hazen and Parish were nominated
and their fitness for the board of edu
cation Is well known by Norfolk pee
For tbo city council four good men
were named. Messrs. ( larvln , W. H.
Bridge , James l/ > ugh and Pat Dolan ,
are representative business men and
their neighbors know that they would
glvo Norfolk efficient service In a po
sition which has little to attract candl-
bites excepting public duty.
No word of attack can be offered
igalnst the standing of the entire tick
et In the community. Its best effort
it a good administration In all branch
es Is Its platform ,
On a trip from Norfolk to Honestcel
loday , a passenger may pay three
cent per mile or two cents per mile.
Ily purchasing a through tlckcl ho
will pay three cents per mile. By pur
chasing a ticket to Anoka and then ,
after that , paying cash faro to the
conductor Into Honesteel , ho may get
a ride from Norfolk to Anoka at the
rate of two cents per mile. It IB said
that the conductors lose their tempers
over the tangle. Hut a report from
Washington Indicates that the tangle
will bo unravelled before long by no
less a personage than President Reese
velt. Ho holds to the opinion that
Nebraska has violated the national
rate law , passed last winter , by legis
lating In such a way as to create a dis
crimination. Ho believes that Nev
braska legislators have created a con
dition unfair to South Dakota people
when they passed a law allowing a
passenger In Nebraska to ride for less
money than he can ride in South Da
As a result of this law passed In
Nebraska , and others like it In other
states , the president will , It Is said ,
start a suit against railroads for dis
criminating by allowing people am ]
freight to rldo In one state cheaper
than In another. Tbo railroads will
answer that they are obeying state
laws. Then the clash will come be
tween state nnd federal power , and
President Roosevelt believes that the
national government will win.
President Roosclvclt , It Is said , be
lieves that the state legislatures , ' in
their onslaught against railway cor
porations , have demonstrated their In
ability to deal with the question. He
believes they have exceeded their
constitutional authority. Ho believes
ho will win his point and that as a
result commerce , . Interstate and Intra
state , will be regulated by the fedora
government. State lines , he thinks
will bo wiped out so far ns commerce
Is concerned.
Mr. Stlcknoy already has a case li
the supreme court , which will prob
ably bo reached next fall , touchlnp
this question of power as betweer
state and federal government. Bu
the president , It Is said , plans tc
hasten a decision.
Mr. Roosevelt Is reported to fee
certain that the courts will susttaln
his contention that the federal govern
in en t has exclusive control over nil
traffic matters , whether Interstate ot
Intrastate , because of a decision b >
Chief Justice Marshall early In the last
century In the case of Ogden vs
Gibbons. In that cnso the supreme
court held that a steamboat plying be
tween New York city and Albany was
engaged In Interstate business , not
withstanding It did not go outside the
waters of New York state.
President Roosevelt Is said to agree
absolutely with Mr. Stlckney of the
Chicago Great Western , and other rail
way presidents , that various states
have no right to legislate regarding
traffic affairs.
The president believes , It Is re
ported , that such laws ns have been
passed In Nebraska and other states
regulating traffic are null nnd void
and will be held unconstitutional b >
the courts.
It Is also reported that the prcsl
dent , with Mr. Harrlman , believes
that the portion of the Sherman anti
trust act relating to railroads must
be repealed so as to allow roads' to
pool In order that there may not bo
A Washington report says that this
action of the president , toward testing
the federal power , has dome from the
fact that leglslaures In Illinois , Ne
braska and other states have run wild
on the railway problem during the
past winter.
It Is announced that a message an
nouncing these views of the presi
dent may bo expected soon. It Is also
said that the railway presidents may
decide , afetr all , not to confer with
the president because the country has ,
In a general way , looked upon their
outline visit as an appeal on their
knees when they Intended it merely
ns a conference at which they could
discuss the situation now so para
There Is a pretty definitely outlined
protest growing in Norfolk against any
plan for the now school building , to
replace that destroyed by fire , which
lees not contemplate the use of walls
mil foundation ns they still stand. If
the $21,000 bonds asked for by the
Minrtl of education are to bo carried
it the coming election , the public
mist first have assurance that these
walls and the foundation will bo used
is they stand. Men In a position to
enow , claim that the walls and founda
tion can bo used without first being
torn down. As yet no definite action
ms been taken by the board of educa
tion us to the plans of the new build *
ng which must be erected. It WOH In-
'ormally suggested , however , at the
neotlng held after the flro , that a
smaller nnd differently planned struc
ture , for the use of high school sin-
lontH alone , would bo more practica
ble than to rebuild the old structure
just as It stood. It" was stated that
the Interior arrangement of the old
building had been demonstrated to bo
unsatisfactory In several respects and
that it Is more satisfactory to have
the high school In a building by Itself.
The plan , as then Informally outlined ,
was to add to other buildings in the
city the rooms that would be required
to take acre of grades lower than Ilio
high school which formerly occupied
rooms in that building.
It ( may bo ) pointed out in opposi
tion to this theory , however , that the
walls and foundation as they stand
today nro worth , If the building Is re
placed with the same foundation and
walls , at least $10,000.
It Is urged further that to tear down
the walls will not only cost their value
as they now stand but will make ad
ditional expense , since the pressed
brick would have to be carefully han
dled and cleaned.
There are several fundamental rea
sons why the high school should be
rebuilt so as to use the walls and
foundation as they stand. In the first
place , the former high , school struc
ture In point of architecture was as
pretty a shaped building as there was
in the state. It was well built and the
stone foundation Is said to have cost
$7,000 or $8,000. Two of the walls
that are standing are In almost per
fect condition , the pressed brick work
being of a superior quality.
It would seem that If the property
belonged to a private Individual and
these children were his wards and
these taxes his to pay , there would be
little question but that ho would re
build the high school exactly as it was
before , unless experience has shown
that Interior arrangements are wrong ,
In which case changes cjin bemade
without changing the outside walls.
No doubt the new building should
have steam beat instead of the Sin cad
system and as the sewer system will
boon bo near enough to this .building
to connect with , there will be no ne
cessity of rebuilding the dry closet
system. This will glvo considerable
additional room In the basement which
can be used for manual training 01
for any other purpose that It would
bo suitable for.
It would be a very serious matter a !
this time to hav'o the school bonds
defeated as there Is barely enough
time to complete the building for next
fall , but from public opinion expressed
about the city it seems doubtful If the
bonds carry unless the old walls and
foundation are to be used ns they
It Is stated that to replace the build
ing as It stood would cost $40,000.
There Is $15,000 Insurance , the bonds
will mean $24,000 and the salvage In
the walls and foundation , If used as
now standing , will amount , it Is
claimed , to $ 10,000. This would make
a total of $49,000. The loss on furni
ture , books , etc. , amounted to $8,000 ,
To replaces the building and the equip
ment would therefore mean practical
ly all of these available funds of $49-
It Is safe to say that Norfolk will
much prefer to have the old walls and
foundation used as they stand , and tc
have a building similar to that which
burned instead of a smaller and less
berfutiful structure.
And there Is one new feature which
ought to be considered. A bill has
been introduced in the legislature by
Senator Randall providing for a
county high school In each county , and
requiring a school dlstrict'to contribute
toward Us support In accordance with
the number of pupils sent to it from
that precinct. The Norfolk high
school building could well bo rebuilt
on the old walls and plans , too large
for the present needs of the high
school alone , with this .county high
school In view , so that In case this
bill becomes a law , and In case Mad
ison county sees the advantage of
establishing a county high school
here In Norfolk , the big structure
couK be used for both city and the
county high school purposes.
The United States government ,
through its officials who liavo hold of
fice in the Interior department for the
past score or more of years , Is respon
sible to a large extent for the land
prosecutions which have just resulted
In sentence being passed upon two
prominent cattlemen of western Ne
braska. If there have been laws violated
lated , it is probable that legal eyes
can see that fact alono. But there has
[ jcen for decades nn unwritten land
law In the west , placed In the unwrit
ten but established code by the very
ipprovnl of the federal government's
officials , nnd the government itself
must now assume responsibility for
that situation.
Western sandhills , arid and nonpro
ductive , drove would-be settlers , brok
en In purse and spirit , back to their
ivlvcs' relation years ago. The lands
were left unoccupied , desolate , unin
viting ami stretching out over broad
iiindrcds of miles of waste.
For cnltlo In mammoth herds those
lands , with hero n tuft and there n
tuft of grass , wore of some use. The
government officials , recognizing the
lack of value In the lands nnd willing
that the acres should bo used In any
possible way , established an unwritten
law allowing cattle to bo turned loose
on those prairies. It was not a crim
inal who thus pastured out his herds.
He was a benefactor to the western
part of this state because ho estab
lished an industry that could not be
established except where mammoth
tracts of the sandhills could bo used ,
and ho did It under the government's
To establish herds of one blood , it
was essential that the breeds bo not
mixed. To prevent mixing , the herds
must bo kept separate. To keep them
separate , either the too expensive pro
cess of constant guardianship or fenc
ing was necessary. Fences built ur
herds that Nebraska was proud of.
This using of the public domain maj
have been against the law. The Unit
ed States government did not enforce
that law for years and by non-enforce
ment taught western Nebraska to dc
what It did. It may have been illegal
but the government must take Its
share of the blame If It was Illegal
And that the spirit of the situation
was right Is attested by the recent en
actment In congress of a public land
leasing bill.
Those western cattlemen had no In
tent at stealing public domain. Thej
were using acres in the only way thej
could be used , which otherwise laj
The government has called these
men thieves. They have been tried ir
the courts and persecuted in the mag
azines and newspapers. They have
been convicted before juries whlcl :
hail been biased by passionately writ
ten articles against the defendants.
A law that Is not enforced Is a bat
law at best. For thirty years the Unit
ed States government was aware o ]
just what was going on and the gov
ernment taught the west that then
was an unwritten law just as it has
taught the south that there is an un
wrlten law which offsets the four

Concerning the case , Mr. Comstock
who has just been sentenced to a prls
on term , bad this to say befoie sen
tence was pronounced :
"It Is possible at this time properlj
to explain my position In these matters
tors , inasmuch as when this case was
tried no defense was presented. Ir
these land transactions we were actlnf
under and by the advice of our attor
ney , who not only stands high In hh
profession , but , possibly by reason ol
his familiarity with the practicju am
customs of the land office , wa/J mart
capable to give nn opinion/on tin
United States land laws tha : . any mar
In the state. His advice was that w
were not only clearly within our legal
right , but also our moral right , as hav
ing prevailed In the Interior depart
ment for the last thirty years at least
This opinion of his was corroborated
by the Interior department Itself In Its
action In the Pearman case. In this
an investigation was made by a spe
clal agent of the government In ar
affidavit obtained showing the exact
parallel condition to this case , ir
which we have been recently tried , and
the Interior department acting , as 1
understood at the time , under the spe
clal direction of Secretary Hitchcock
immediately ordered a patent Issued
for the land. Relying on this opinion
from two different source.s , I felt thai
I was doing nothing but what was
clearly within my rights , for ccrtainlj
the further thought from my mind was
that In any of these transactions 1
was disobeying the laws of my coun
try. For we feel that wo have a right
to depend upon our legal advisers , as
well as upon the interior department
Itself. It has been my desire to so live
that when my allotted time should
come people would say that I had al
ways tried to bo fair and just and do
what was right. You , the judge ol
this court , In carrying out your duty ,
cannot inflict a punishment that will
cause mo to feel more deeply the hu
miliation , and this brought about with
out any intention on my part of dis
obeying any law. I would especially
ask for your leniency because one of
the defendants , Mr. Jameson , who Is
not a free agent in these matters , sim
ply a subordinate , but doing what be
believed was right , knowing and rely
ing upon the opinions I have outlined.
No man of my acquaintance has n
greater sense of honor and Integrity
than ho has. "
After Mr. Comstock had concluded
Judge A. W. Crltes of the counsel for
the defense said :
"Your honor , I wish to corroborate
all that Mr. Comstock has said. It has
been the practice In that country for
more than twenty-five years to acquire
land In the general method with which
: ho defendants are charged. I know
this to bo a fact from many years'
residence in that section and as a
'ormer land official. This practice has
jeen observed with cognizance and
tnowledgo of high officials and with
ho approval of the government , 1
lave known these leading defendants
for many years and their people before
them In a business way for many
years. No men can bo farther from
: ho Intent of wrong-doing. Those prac
tices have been tolerated for many
years by the Interior department , these
lefondants supposed they wore doing
right. The case referred to by Mr.
womstock Is Identical In character with
that of which these defendants are
charged , nnd It is known by nil men
that these decisions have beoen ac
cepted as the basis of the land laws.
We cannot attack the verdict of the
jury because your honor will not per
mit It. All these defendants wanted
to know what Is the law and how to
obey It. "
