PROPOSES GENERAL ENFORCE
MENT OF SLOCUM LAW.
MAYOR DURLAND ISSUES ORDERS
WINDOW CURTAINS AND SCREENS
MUST BE REMOVED.
HOUR FOR CLOSING , 11 O'CLOCK '
Action of the Mayor is Consistent With
His Proclamation at the Beginning
of His Term of Office Lid Goes on
Features of the new Norfolk "lid : "
cncral enforcement of the "Slocum
nw , " removal of all window curtains
ind screens from s-nloons , an 11 o'clock
aloon closing order for week days
md nn all day closing order for Sun-
lay , n stringent prohibition of the sale

Norfolk saloon keepers were notified
Tuesday evening and Wednesday
naming of a new "lid , " supposedly to
> e nailed on local saloon affairs at
once by the city administration. Ix > -
cal saloon men were visited by Chief
of Police Flynn and served with a
copy of the following signed notice
rom the mayor :
"To Whom it May Concern : You
ire hereby notified to comply with nil
) f the requirements of the "Slocum
aw" as prescribed In Cobbey's com-
> iled statutes of Nebraska , 1907 , and
of the city ordinances , In conducting
ho business of your saloon. We espe
cially call your attention to the closing
lour , which Is now 11 o'clock , p. m. ,
and any failure to comply with this
lotice , after this date , will be dealt
with according to law. By ( signed )
H. Durland , mayor. December 17 ,
11)07. ) "
Mayor Durland stated during the
lay that the order meant exactly what
it said and that its provisions were to
; ) e enforced Immediately. Screens
were expected to be removed within
The mayor said that what he was
fighting more than anything else was
the sale of liquor to minors. Sale of
liquor to minors Is to be followed up
with vigorous prosecution.
Norfolk saloons have been under a
"Sunday lid" for some time but have
been remaining open until midnight
luring the week. Eleven o'clock Is
the new hour set for closing , a city or
dlnancc that has not been generally
observed providing that during the six
months beginning with November 1
the Norfolk saloons must close at 11
instead of 12.
It Is the mayor's order calling for
the removal of window obstructions
that seems to call forth the most ob
jections from the saloon men and the
liberal element. It Is said that the re
moval of screens handicaps the deal
ers whose places of business are the
more exposed to public gaze. Of
course the usual arguments are ad
vanced In favor of screens but It Is
said that In Norfolk's case the differ
ence in the arrangement of local sa
loons will make the anti-screen order
uneven In its operations.
When Mayor Durland stepped Into
office last spring he outlined his saloon
policy In his first address to the coun
ell. He said : "There are just a few
things that I want to refer to before
we take up the license question. I
would like for the saloon men to know
about where I stand before they pay
for their licenses. First , the part of
the Slocum law referring to minors
loitering In and around the saloons
will be adhered to , also gambling In
and out of saloons can not be coun
tenanced , neither will women of bad
repute be permitted to enter them.
Those saloons having partitions In
with swinging doors , cutting off the
bar from the street , must be removed
at once , and at the hour of closing
Saturday nights , all screens , curtains
and window decorations are to be re
moved , so that the bar Is In full view
of the street and remain so until the
hour of opening Monday morning. The
law referring to the sale or giving
away of liquor on Sunday will be
strictly looked after , and I want to
say that this will apply to the drug
stores as well as to the saloons , am
right hero also I want to say the or
dlnnnces regulating drug stores on the
sale or giving away of liquors will be
The mayor does not thlnlt that the
"lid" idea as outlined In his Inltia
address has been carried out by some
of the saloons. As n result ho re
Iterates his first order with the addl
tlonal feature of an "open bar" unob
structed by screens.
A number of saloon men removet
their screens as soon as the mayor's
order was received. The others , I
was said , would comply at once.
The new "lid" does not banish pee
tables , chairs or beer tables from the
saloons. It has been hinted , though
that some such action ns this ralgh
bo brought before the city council.

satisfactorily. Mayor Durland and

Wild Cat Money Men Are Held by
Lincoln , Neb. , Dec. 18. Alex John

brought from Geneva to Lincoln last
week by United States Marshal 'Hen-
sel , charged with counterfeiting , were
bound over by Commissioner C. C.
Mnrley yesterday to await action by
the federal grand jury at the May
term. They previously entered pleas
of not guilty. Their ball was fixed at
$1,000 each , and in default of It they
were taken back to the Lancaster
county jail. The men had just fin
ibhed doing time in jail at Geneva
when they were turned over to Mar
shal Hensel by the sheriff of Fillmore
Julius L. Monteen and Earl Morln ,
both of Wahoo , appeared as witnesses
against Johnson and O'Brien at the
preliminary hearing before Couimls
sloner Marlay. Monteen Is a clerk In
A. Morln's department store. He told
of taking a ? 20 bill issued by an old
Georgia bank more than fifty years
ago , the currency being worthless ever
since the war , In payment for a ? 1 pair
of pants and giving $1C In change.
Earl Morln Is a boy about 14 years of
age , the son of the man who owns the
store. He sold a shirt to one of the
two men for $1.50 and gave change for
the same kind of a $20 bill.
The sheriffs from Fillmore and
Saunders counties were present , but
their testimony was not called for.
The two defendants claim that the
money they passed was not counter
feit , since at one time It served ns
legal tender. This point will bo con
tested with some vigor at their trial.

GOVERNOR OF MINNESOTA SEEKS

Minnesota Governor Now In the Field
Against Bryan For the Democratic
Nomination For President of the
Minneapolis , Minn. , Dec.IS. Gover
nor Johnson of Minnesota Is definitely
In the race for the democratic nomi
nation for presidency. This statement
Is made on the authority of D. W. W.
Mayo , nn eminent surgeon of Mliine-
ipolls , and a friend of Governor John-
sou , who said today that the gover
nor told him he was certainly a can
didate for the democratic nomination.
Dr. Mayo , who arrived from Missouri
last week , while In St. Louis , had n
conference with Governor Folk regard
ing the presidential situation. Folk
said he would like to know what the
Minnesota executive had In view with
reference to running against Brynu. Dr
Mayo readily offered to consult Gov
ernor Johnson , and If possible secure
a definite announcement.
When he called at the Minnesota
capitol and discussed political affairs
lie was startled to receive from the
governor thin reply to a question ask
ing whether he , Johnson , "was a can
didate for the nomination. "
"Yes sir , I am. "
The governor further stated that ho
liad received letters from nil qver the
country asking him to bo a candidate ,
and had a full expression from the
meeting held In Washington. This has
determined him to take his chance If
the democrats of Minnesota wished It.
Dr. Mayo asked the governor If ho
might use this statement publicly , to
which the reply was :
"What I say Is for everybody , and
you may say to Governor Folk and
everyone else that I am In the field for
the nomination. "
