It In said that this can be done and
still leave the water main Homo four

sioned by failure to receive expected
shipments of sewer plpo.

Trainmaster E. O. Mount of the
Northwestern railroad has received
a note from D. Rees of this city. Mr.
Hoes tells how people are trcaled In
Great Britain for attempting to cheat
a railway company out of carfare.
Every person caught attempting to
ride free or to escape payment of
faro , Is arrested and fined and maybe
bo Imprisoned In Jail. Every person
thus convicted Is given more or less
notoriety by the posllng of a large
bill at every railway station within
fifty miles announcing his guilt and
conviction. The presentation of a
ticket more than ono day old Is con
sidered an attempt to cheat the rail
way company out of Us proper faro ,
"hi this country trying to cheat a
railroad Is considered stealing , " writes
Mr. llees. "What do you think of
that ? "

SENATOR DOLLIVER OF IOWA
PLEADS FOR OPTIMISM.
HAS SEEN COUNTRY IMPROVE
Brings to Northern Nebraska Teach
ers a Message of Hope Asks That
They Instill In Young Mlndo Whole
some Regard for Government.
North Nebraska teachers were told
to Instill the spirit of national optim
ism Into the minds of their pupils
Thursday evening at the Auditorium.
They were told In straight direct lan
guage that the government and Insti
tutions of America worn more firmly
planted along right lines loday than In
the past. It was United Slates Sen
ator .1. P. Dolllvor of fbwa , speaking
Thursday evening before ho North No-
bra Hit a Teachers' assocliillon , who
brought the mosmigo of confidence lo
"Thoro Is ono lesson Unit you No-
hraska teachers ought to teach over
and over again and It forms the basis
of my remarks tonight , " said Senator
Dolllvor. "It Is : That our Institutions
are all right and thai American pullc
life Is nllrlght nnd that there Is no
excuse for despairing as to these In-
slllutlons or as to tholr administration
> y the government. A firm faith In
ho Integrity of our Instllullons and ,
n tltu whole , In the Integrity of ourna-
lonnl life Is necessary If wo are to
onlrlbulo to progress. "
Sonnlor Dolllver spoke as a for
nor school loachor lo the teachers of
oday. Ills speech was a plea for the
America of today and ho wanted the
plrlt of hope and confidence
ireathed In every school house. Mr.
Dolllvor made a plain direct talk to
ho leachors. His words were fol-
owed closely by llio big crowd lhat
Hied the Audllorlum , his humorous
sallies bringing smiles and his lolling
Watched Him Rise.
The speaker of the evening was in
roduccd by Hon. John H. Hays , whoso
icquainlanco with Senator Dolllver
dates over a period of many years , dur-
ng which tlmo the Iowa statesman has
been known successively as Mr. DelIver -
Ivor , Hon. J. P. Dolllvor and now Sen
ator Dolllvor. Mr. Dolllver said In
: > art :
"I do not believe that Ideal moral
conditions once flourished In our coun
try but are now lost. I do believe that
Lho standard of morality and the Integ
rity of American public life was never
more worthy of the confidence of the
\merlcan people. It Is a 'humbug'
proposition lhat the old slnndards and
the old ways were altogelhcr holy and
pure and lhat wo have now fallen into
evil ways. Wo must combat these
men anxlpus to Impeach the public
morality of their day.
"Tho truth Is that wo of today know
heller what Is going on In our counlry
than the people of 1835 did. Wo oven
know heller what went on In those
days than did the people of the time.
Private conversation as a method of
communicating and discovering facts
has given way lo an organized press.
The dark lantern has been thrown on
the standards of those early days with
results that will not bear out those
who contrast the libels and hearsays
of the public life of these days against
the moral standards of Ihose far-off
days of alleged moral porfccllon.
Drunk Senators Gone
"I am a humble but willing witness
to the gradual rise of moral sentiment
In the national capital. Twenly years
ago both house and senate had their
saloons. Drunken men staggered
through the hall of the house and be
fore the bar of the senate. Wo have
lived to see drunkenness practically
abolished at the capital and have seen
drinking places driven from every pub
lic building In llio United Stales.
"Tho national character of our people
ple is going upward and forward. The
whole attitude of the public mind has
undergone a radical change. The sit
uation Is viewed from a now angle.
The moral uplift of the American people
ple finds expression in Its congress. "
Senator Dolllver said that the nucs-
lions engaging attention in Washing-
on at tills tlmo were not the tariff ,
money or railroad issues but other
Itinstions hitherto neglected hut now
vitalized by their human connections.
riu government has been striving to
send a million and a half children from
the mines and factories to the schools ,
to protect the interests of the million
young men lu railroad service , to pro
tect the health of the people from adul
terated and poisonous foods , drinks
and medicines and to prevent fraud
ulent and unlawful agreements be
tween railroads and corporations Inju
rious to the welfare of the people.
No Niche For Pessimist.
These things Indicated , the senator
said , that the government had become
responsive to the conscience and will
of llio people. The signs of Iho limes
were encouraging and the cry to the
pessimist should bo put aside.
"You who teach the young should
communicate your confidence in the
Institulons of your country , " was Sen
ator Dolllvcr's message to Iho teach
ers. "Our children must not carry the
Idea that our public life is corrupt or
corrupting. They should bo taught
that public Hi'e is an honorable thing.
They must not think lhat the now gen
erations tire falling to meet the respon
sibilities of government. "
A piano duet rendered by Misses
Stewart and Do Greet and two vocal
solos by W. L , Campbell of Wayne ,
completed the Thursday evening pro
gram and wore received with favor.
ENROLLMENT HAS INCREASED.
367 Had Enrolled by Thursday Night
500 Will be Approached.
Thursday's enrollment In the North
Nebraska Teachers' association
brought the association membership lip
to . ' 1(57. ( The Influx of now teachers lo
day Is Increasing lhat membership.
By night Iho assoclallon will have
passed the 400 mark safely and may
approach towards the half thousand
mark originally forecasted. But with
the enrollment where It Is , the officers
are satisfied with the attendance , which
compares very favorably with olhor
meetings , *
The enrollment figures of the pres
ent Hosslon are actual figures and not
estlmales. Of tho. 1107 people rcgls-
crcd by Thursday evening practically
all are bona lido teachers. Less than
a scoVo of Norfolk people not In the
teaching profession have enrolled to
obtain the benefits of association mem
bership but the remaining membership
of the assoclallon Is composed of
north Nebraska educators who arc
spending a happy vacation in Norfolk
In a highly profitable way.
Madison county naturally loads In
the number of teachers attending the
meeting. ' About 125 registered mem
bers of the assoclallon sign from Mad
ison county. Madison , the homo of
President Perdue , Is represented by a
largo delegation of teachers. The first
two days registration was distributed

When the North Nebraska Teachers'

vlll bo for a program of even greater
norlt than the ono arranged for the
wenty-first annual meeting. To make

eo of the association was raised from
iO cents lo ? 1. The mollim to Increase
ho fee raised debate In the Friday

carried by a largo majority
At the close of the general Friday
nornlng session at the Auditorium
'resident Perdue called the annual
mslness meeting of the association.
The election of officers resulted In the
selection of the following educators to

Superintendent A. V. Teed of Dlxon
county , president ; City Suporinton-

The place of holding next year's

The teachers' meeting closed with
a general session held Friday after
noon in the Methodist audllorlum.
This session , embracing the lecture by
Superintendent Henry Houck of Penn
sylvania , was held at 4 p. m. , following
the afternoon department meetings.
Originally scheduled for Friday evenIng -
Ing the last general session was ad
vanced to the afternoon In order to
accommodate Ihe teachers desirous of
attending the production of "The Isle
of Spice" and also to afford the teach
ers leaving the city on the evening
trains an opportunity to hear the lec
ture of the Pennsylvania educator.
He Would be a Teacher.
"Who Is going to be the republican
nominee for president ? If you could
answer that question , your newspaper
clrculallon would go sky high. That
Is what they all ask , but none can
answer. Prophecies along that line
arc merely problematical and a waste
of breath. When you find out who
will be nominated , lot mo know. "
This was United States Senator Dol-
llver's way of answering a query that
Is now being much discussed. He re
marked that Nebraska would no doubt
have a candidate on the democratic
ticket "Nebraska has a candidate
with great staying quallles , " said the
Senator DolHver , In company with
his host , John R. Hays , called upon The
News just before he look a Irain for
Sioux Clly. Treasurer Teed of the
teachers' association , locating the
stalesman nt The News office , has
tened to pay up for the lecture of the
night befora Senator Dolllvor eiV
plained that his late arrival In Nor
folk was duo to the facl lhat ho had
Jusl reached his homo in Iowa the
night before ho was booked for Nor
folk. Ho had qulto forgoltcn his on-
gagomonl hero until Mrs. Dolllvor re
minded him of the date. "And , " said
Iho senator , "she qulto insisted upon
my filling the engagement. "
Senator Dolllver was the guest while
hero , at the homo of his long-time
friend , John R. Hays.
Rather be Teacher Than Senator.
"Is It true , Semuor Dolllver , that
you would , if you had It to do over
agaliit keep out of politics ? "
"That Is the situation , " said the
statesman of Iowa who has for twen
ty years represented his stale in con- '
grcsslonal halls and who has navcr
experienced unpleasantness nor been
called on lo spend money In the hold
ing of his office.
"I have often said , " ho continued ,
"that I should llko to have been a
teacher. I have been required lo re
fuse llio offers of three university pres
idencies within the past few years. I
believe thai If I had followed lhat line
of work , I could have performed a
great public service without having
been forced to run for office.1
Ills objection to being a senator ,
Senator Dolliver said , lies in the fact
thai a man works forever and never
