COATS ARE TO BE SHORTER.
The Russian Blouse WIN be Worn
Through Another Season.
Now York , Feb. 12. Every day finds
something now in suits as they drift
Into the shops. But the novelties are
usually inconspicuous the cutaway of
the front , the arrangement of the but
tons , the placing of the trimming , a
touch of Individuality hero or there.
So far , all that can bo said of the
wool suits may bo summed up In very
few words. The coats are shorter
than the winter ones , but not to the
hip na yet In the majority of cnscs.
Most of the best ones in as yet are
of the severely tailored style made for
a mid-season , and It Is no time , In
this latitude , to put on hip length
coats after wearing coats below the
knees , if not to the hem of the gowns.
Many of them arc cutaway In front ,
but not radically , only a slight slant
from each side usually. The collar
that comes nearly or qulto to the
waist line continues , and the buttons
depend upon Its depth. If it Is very
long , only one or two , nt the most
three , buttons arc used and they often
come below the waist line. Skirts are
mostly plaited , although gored and
oven circular models nro to bo found.
Broadcloths nro the llrst to arrive
and homespuns and wide wale serges
of lighter weight than those used In
the winter. Colors , too , are noticeably
lighter , but this Is to bo expected for
spring. Quite a few mixed goods are
to bo found in the new suits and they
promise a run through the spring.
But such materials nre burdensome for
summer and the woman who is to
buy a suit that will go through the
summer will do well to wait until
the smooth serges , better suited to
that season , are here. Such suits will
be here soon , some hnvo como now.
Rough weaves nre liked bettor nt
this hour than anything else for sturdy
tailor-mades for the morning for
walking and traveling.
The long coat Is still coming In for
the girls who refuse to give up the
Haltering lines of their favorite. One
suit seen hero is made of a mixed
cheviot In tawney yellow brown , with
an odd panel braided with brown fall
ing over the shoulder to the left side ,
and ending in a cord and tassols.
The skirt is plain and with the suit
is worn a waist of brown net braided
with brown and made over silk of the
light yellow brown.
There Is ns yet no dress In the
amount of braiding put on gowns and
suits. The soutache , Hat and on edge ,
and rattail braid employed. In the
linen tailor mades the embroidery that
looks like rattnil braid is a good deal
used , and effectively.
In suits with any pretense to elab
orateness , pockets arc a prominent
feature , and even In plain suits the
pockets of odd cut are also conspicu
ous for odd shape and finish. In some
little fancy tailor mades that have
como over from Paris , the pockets are
a mass of soutachlng and the coats
are only long enough to allow a place
for them below the waist lino. Some
times the edges of the pocket nro nil
braided or embroidered in the same
way and the lapel or collar always Is.
In these suits , the collars are of shawl
style and come down to the waist line
or nenr It.
I The girls are going to cling to the
Russian blouse through another sea-
1 son. The Russian blouso/ls dlstlncl-
\y \ n girlish garment and is out of
. place on a matronly figure. But the
J girl that will wear the suit that is
odd until fall would do better to pro
vide the regulation tailor made coat ,
since that Is alwnys In style. The
Russian style Is n Heeling fancy nt
the best and will hardly survive an
other six months , to sny nothing of n
SCARFS TO LEND THE COLOR.
The Day of the One-Tone Gown Is
Now York , Feb. 12. The scarf on
n gown shown recently Is used In a ,
most effective and unconventional
manner. Of painted chiffon , It gives
the delicate touch of color necessary '
to mnko an entirely whlto gown becoming >
coming to n great many women.
Some of these painted chiffons are
raarvolously beautiful. "Robo" gowne
for that Is the tautological name
glvon to the droBses which are worn
In patterns nnd need only a few fin
Isblng touches at the hands of the
dressmaker are most beautifully ex
ecuted In hand painted chiffons. Be
ginning with a dark shade at the hem ,
they graduate Into a cream white
ahovo the knees , repeating the same
color scheme In the opposite direction
on the bodice.
One of these began In a deep green
blue band at thu hem , developed Into
a leaf pattern , and finally died away
Into a faint sea green half way up Its
lenglh. Another combined orange and
pink , blending Ihetn In perfect har
mony and shading finally Into the pal-
csl peach blush hue. Ah the gown
was Its own trimming It needed no
more than a long sash of peach col
ored messallnu ribbon tied In a jaunty
bow at the left of the back to complete
The same bolder effect and the mixIng -
Ing of several colors are seen In the
less expensive materials as well. At
tractive challlea , ginghams , cotton
cropea nnd lawna are made up In "pat
tern dresses , " and bands of the pat
terned goods arc sold to trim the bo
dice. The skirts of Ihese gowns need
no hem or seams , hut are ready to
bo fastened to the waistband. These
materials suggest strongly that the
day of the ono-tono gowns Is n thing
of the past.
Norfolk Needs General Manager.
Norfolk , Fob. 12. Edllor News :
The ncllon of the Commercial club
members In re-olectlng the entire
board of directors was n graceful com
pliment and no doubt well deserved.
It Is evident to everybody that this
board had done all that could bo
done with the weapons at their dis
posal. It la absolutely necessary In
this ago lo act in harmony nnd unity
for common purposes and Intoreats.
Without these conditions prevailing
among the cily's business men but lit-

The time seems finally to have ar
rived , when Norfolk In real earnest
ness is laying plans to build n city
worthy of the nnmo. If recent notions

ments by city officials and privnto cit
izens , ns well ns by the press If these
statements are to bo taken In earnest
the day seema indeed close nt hand ,
when our city can point with pride to
her paved streets.
This improvement Is , after all , the
first step lowards real growlh nnd
advancement. A paved street la just
as necessary to a clly , If that city ex
pects ever to amount to anything , as
a floor la to n dwelling.
And for Norfolk's snke I hope there
is something more than mere politics
behind the movement.
But the business Interests of Nor
folk must not fold their nrnis and
stand Idly by and at the same time ex
pect any great things to como to them ,
merely by hnvlng n Commercial club
and a paved street. You cannot with
any justice to yourself expect that
these directors shall all the time neg
lect their own business in the In
terest of the city at large. They are
willing lo do what bodies like these
usually perform , but Norfolk happens
just now to want something more.
1 If the city is going to advance and
' If only in n measure fuflh the hopes
and dreams of its people a campaign
of progressive and concerted work
' must be inauguraled. We cannot ex
pect that all of this can be done by
Ihe dlreclors. They all have their
private business interests lo look af-
ler , that In n greater or less degree
lay claim to their lime and efforls.
Whal Norfolk needs and ought to
have Is a general manager or if
you please , a Commercial club com

I men financially and morally Intereal-
ed In the upbuilding and the future

there should be no great obstacles In

hire such a man. What sort of man
, we could secure for this posilion
would entirely rest with the salary
I believe that Norfolk business inter-
cats would feel well satisfied over the
envestment nt the end of the year.
Joyce Guilty , Also ; Gets 20 Years.
Pierce , Neb. , Feb. 11. Special to
'The ' News : Harry Joyce was found
guilty last night of robbing the bank at
I Judge Welch this morning sentenced
' Joyce to twenty yeara In the pent-
i tenllary nt hard Inbor , Sunday ex-
1 cepted. Joyce said In n quiet voice
! that he had nothing to say , save that
ho wasn't guilty.
Judge Welch said he gave Joyce ten
years less than Morrison because Mor-
1 rison's record showed former poni-
j tontlary service , while Joyce's did not.
This makes fifty years in Iwo men's
lives that the Hadar bank robbery ,
in which they secured $1,910 , will cost.
It was Ihe testimony of Mrs. Stan-
field of Norfolk , who dressed Joyce's
burned hand a few hours after Mie
Iladar bank safe was blown with nitro
glycerine , and the testimony of her
daughter , litlle 12-year-old Evelyn Stan-
field , that convicted the bank robber.
Joyro will be taken through Norfolk
tonight to the stale penitentiary.
Evelyn Stnnfiold made the state's
star witness. All alone in the court
room , without nny one to conch her ,

Welch's court in Pierce county a cou
ple of months ago and sentenced lo
thirty yenrs In prison at hnrd labor.
Judge Welch presided in this case ,
The convlcllon of Morrison and
Joyce brings lo a climax one of the
hardest fought bank robbery cases In
the annals of Nebraska. It wns almost
two yenrs ago March 18 , 1308 , that
the Farmers Slnle bank of Hndar , a
small town live miles north of Nor
folk , was robbed nnd about $1,940 tak
en out of the vault.
The only clew left by the robVera
was a knife which had been bought
from E. S. South's hardware slore In
Norfolk on the Saturday before.
Three men Morrison , Joyce and III-
ley were arrested In Sioux City and
held as suspicious characters. They
had been loafing around Sioux City for
some time up until a few days before
the robbery. Then they disappeared ,

robbery. The Sioux Clly police had

JACK JOHNSON TAKES FEW DIGS
AT JOHN L. SULLIVAN.
'HE'S ' CONCEITED AND SELFISH'
Black Fighter Claims Sullivan Would
Have Been Easy Meat for Tom Shar-
key Compares the Sailor With
Detroit , Fob. 12. "Ho always was a
knocker. Sullivan never boosted pee
ple. He's the most conceited fellow
that ever lived. Conceited and selfish
that's him , " said Jack Johnson last
night , discussing the criticisms that
the former champion of America Is
passing out regarding the coming bat
tle for the heavy weight championship
of the world.
"The old boy is living up lo his
reputation , Dial's all. He's jealous of
everybody bul himself , but It never
gets him anything. Who Is Sullivan ?
What did he ever do for the ring ?
Tom Sharkoy , in his prime , had ho
been matched with Sullivan when
John L. was In his prime , would have
beaten him so quickly he'd likely have
died from surprise. Sullivan never
saw the day when he was Sharkey's
equnl ns a lighter.
"Thou , what has he done for the
game that gave him a reputation and
fed and clothed him ? Ho' done noth
ing , absolutely nothing. Corbett has
probably done more for lighting than
any other man , give the devil his Just
dues , and Jeffries has done more for
fighting than Sullivan ever started to
do. Jeff has helped fighling a lot.
"Would" I sooner meet Sharkey at
his best than Jeffries ? Oh , I don't
know I guess it .would be a dozen of
one and twelve of the olher. I don't
see where either man has anything on
the other. "
Conversation later turned lo Iho
present squabble between Gleason and
Rickard. Johnson says that down in
his heart he has no preference whatever -
over regarding Ihe location of the
light. For publication he is hanging
out for Salt Lake City.
The big negro gives an argument
that glvea convincing evidence that
Jeffries will not try to stall along and
draw out the fight in order to make
the moving picture end of the bout
a profitable venture.
"Jeff can't afford to do Ihnl , " says
Johnson. "Tho longer ho stalls the
less chance he has. Jeff's best oppor
tunity to win will bo lo put over his
best blows at the start. "

LANGFORD'S PUNCH MISSING.
In the Flynn Fight Sam Didn't Show
up With "Deadly" Wallop. i
Now Yoik. Fob. 12. The light fans
out In Los Angoloa got qulto a jolt
when Jim Flynn , the Pueblo llroman ,
gave Sam Langford , who has been
considered all along as almost In
vincible , a llorco beating Tuesday
night. The ropoit of the contest
states that Langford landed right and
left with terrific force on the Hi email's
jaw several times , but with no appar-
out elfoct. This would HOOIU to Indi
cate that the black demon from Bos
ton Is slipping back somewhat In his
punching powers. In all his previous
encounters , Langford has been able
to drop his man whenever he got
homo on the mark. Flynn Is a tough
follow. He has shown in all his fights
ability to take a lacing as well as deal
out severe punishment. Bul no one
suspected for n moment that he POH- .
sessed sufficient class to whip Lang-
When they met before Langford ,
won by a knockout In the llrst round. |
Ho talrly lifted Flynn from the floor i
with a loft hook to the jaw , putting I
the fireman down and out for Ibu
count. It may be that Langford , on
account of his previous easy victory
held Flynn cheap and for thai reason
I didn't train properly for the light.
' However , that may be , his stock as
a heavy weight champion has taken
a decided slump while Flynn's repu
tation has been greatly enhanced. The
; no-decision rule obtains in those ten
I round bouts in Los Angeles or , more
I properly speaking , Naud Junction ,
1 which Is juut outside of the city lim
its of Los Angeles will permit the
| fight to go on record as a draw. NevI -
I ortheless , If the reports at hand are
I to bo rolled upon , Flynn had much the
betler of the encounter.

Local Baseball at Standstill.
The baseball situation In Norfolk Is
at a standstill. The Commercial clubj
reports that It can do nothing wlthj
the arranging of a team for this year ,
and they have turned the matter back
to last year's management. W. F.
Hall , manager of the last year's team ,
says his connection with the baseball
team was severed when the team dis
banded last year and thnt ho will have
nothing further to do with it. He be
lieves It is up to the Commercial club.
Here the matter rests.
Council Should Publish Plan.
Norfolk , Neb. , Fob. 11. Editor
News : I nm satisfied you have no in
tention of being unfair to any citizen
of Norfolk , yol the matler In The
News of yeslerday , relallvo lo paving ,
Is in effecl condemning properly own
ers who do nol sign Ihe petition for
paving. Now , as I look at It , wo are
asked to sign up , without knowing
what kind of pnvlng we nre to have ,
what the cost will be , or what the
condlllons of payment will bo ; and
after the experience we have had with
the sewer proposition , and the slovenly - ' _
ly manner In which the work was'
done and the condition the street was
left in , la evidence that our money Is
not wisely or economically expended ,
and It is quilc lime this mailer should
be carefully thought out.
It Is estimated it will cost about
$ to pave from the bridge to
Seventh street , all which must be paid
by those who own property facing on
Norfolk avenue , excepting possibly the
streel Inlersecllons. The property
owners have nothing to say but pay
cash , or else find their properties en
cumbered with an Interest bearing
Hen. Add to this Iho special sewer
lax and Iho regular laxes , which for 1909
were much higher than heretofore , and
11 certainly calls for reform In our city
affairs , nnd , while I recognize the need
of paving , Ihe plan and Us cosl should
bo first clearly laid before the prop-
t.rly owners , who must foot the bills.
Yours truly ,
[ According to the law , published In
another column of this paper , after the
council passes Its ordinance to pave ,
property owners have thirty days In
which to notify the council of the ma-
i terlal which Ihey ( Iho properly own
ers ) wanl Iho slreot paved In. Regard
ing the lime for paying Iho special
I lax , Iho law provides that this may bo

and evidently the governor's pat hand
was a better one than the promoter
hold. The wall accredited to "Tox"
In yesterday's papers Is probably the
swan song of the Salt Utku enlorprlse.
Do you remember what Mr. Kipling's
Mulvancy said about the bad elephant
after said elephant had been out on
a spree and had been well walloped
lor his sins ?
" 1 fetched him one more crack , and
wtd thai he lei out a most mclancho-
lions toot , an' I knew thu rest wns no

Somelhlng like. The rosl will bo

He made n good light nnd ho plnyod
the low hand as well ns any. man
could hnvo played It. If It had boon
possible to secure the big attraction
for the Mormon city "Tex" would have
secured It. The most rabid aport in
Utah must admit lhat "Tex" went na
far as he could go and did not atop
until he ran up against a atone wall.
Still there seems to be a question
ns to the location of the light. "Tox"
Rickard knows that If ho goes to San
Francisco he will be backed in on n
siding with every switch spiked. He
knows thai the pulchrltudlnoun Gloa-
.son will take nil Ihe curtain calls nnd
respond for the management when
there Is any after-dinner speech mak
ing to bo done.
Is Considering Los Angeles.
So "Tex" is going lo take a look nt
Los Angeles. If II has to be California
and there is a chance lo eliminate
San Francisco , "Tex" will cast hla lit .
tle vote for nny place outalde of the
Golden Gate clly. The chances nro
agalnsl the selection of the southern
city. San Francisco has had all the
great championship batlles of the wool ,
barring the two which were secured
in Nevada. Tom McCarey has alwaya
been n bidder for the big events , but
when It came to the show down there
wns a strong card in the hole , and that
card was labeled "San Francisco. "
No Money in Nevada.
Nevada seems to be eliminated from
the eligible list. The sago brush atato
had two of the best advertised fights
ever pulled off in thia country nnd
both flghls lost money. The Carson
City nffnlr drew n very smnll gate ,
nnd Goldlleld , although credited with
the biggest gate ever drawn In the
country , Is nol honoslly onlllled to
the dlstlncllon. As a matter of fact
four or live fights drew moro money
than the Gans-Nelson 42-round battle
and after the fighters got their money ,
the arena had been paid for and the
advertising account settled , Goldflold
was facing n tidy loss on Ihe venture.
"Tex" Rickard is game , but to take
a $101,000 fight lo Nevada gets out of
gameness and into emotional Insani
H will be up lo Ihe Ooldon Slate.
The promoters are bubbling about a
$200,000 house. Jeff himself thinks
the fight will draw that much money.
It Is Irue that the cost of the neces
saries of life has risen alarmingly of
late , but the increased cost of living
hardly juslifles a tariff which will
make a $200,000 gate possible.
Pay off on the governor of Utah.
Durnnt , Okla. , Feb. 1.Edllor News :
I have wrillen a loller lo my many
friends In Tllden nnd vlcinily , lo bo
published in that paper , but it seems
thai all they will print , in regard lo
Oklahoma , Is a ronsl. If it were Utah ,
nboul scvenly-llve miles from n rail
road , they would boom Fruitland Val
ley , Oregon , or Washington. I think
ns much of old Nebraska as any other
state , having lived there since 1878 ,
nnd do not believe there is any betlor
state In the union. ,
I think this one of Ihe ttnesl and
mosl healthful climates I over was In.
There are no agents , no excursion
trains booming Oklahoma ; no real OH-
lalo men unless you come hero to lo
cate. There are lols of opportunities
here for Ihe poor man lo Invesl a llttlo
capital In a farm ; In fact , my opinion
at the present tlmo Is lhat Ihls coun
try Is the same as It was In Nebraska
twenty years ago.
In regard to "freak" legislation ,
droughts and hoi winds , Nebraska has
her record as well as Oklahoma.
The parlies on my farm have as flno
corn ns is raised In Nobrnskn. The
trouble with the south Is , It hns a
poor clnss of fnrmers.
Hoping you will see fit to publish
this In The Norfolk News , which I \
know will reach thorn all. I am ,
Yours respectfully ,
L. O. Watorbury.
