Hasn't Norfolk Got the "Bug ? "
What's the answer ?
Isn't Norfolk as sportlly inclined
with the gambling fever when it comes
to grain futures as many smaller
towns In the state , or do the local
speculators do their business away
from home ?
Have Norfolk grain speculators been
nipped nt the game and got cold feet ,
or is this a community of level-headed
sober-minded , conservative beings whr
never feel in their blood the tingle ol
the gambling germ ?
The closing of the Gooch grain brokerage
orago olllee In Norfolk this week be
cause of lack of business , and the fed
eral government's campaign to rid the
country of bucket shops , brings tc
Norfolk's attention the fact that , ra
ther singularly when the size of the
town is considered , there never yel
has been a grain brokerage office ir
this city that could get enough bus !
ness to make It pay.
Within the past twenty years there
have been n halt dozen brokerage of
llces , each one running for a few
months or perhaps a year , but none 01
them remaining permanently , as thej
have in Columbus , West Point anc
some other smaller towns.

Norfolk Man Talked Out.
Lincoln State Journal : An incident
: iot on the program of tlio Nebraska
[ Electrical association enlivened the
proceedings of the final dny , in the
shape of a speech by 13. A. Bullock of
Norfolk severely criticising Mayor
I..OVD of Lincoln because the latter In
ils welcoming address on Tuesday
nado some remarks favorable to mun-
cipal ownership and cited Lincoln's
experience with waterworks and elec
tric light. Mr. Bullock characterized
this talk as an "insult" to the asso
ciation and wanted to take the con
vention next year to some city where
t would be "welcome. " His address
created a great deal of stir but In the
ifternoon everything was smoothed
over and the meeting concluded with
10 further display of feeling.
AH of the old olllcers were reelected
ed except two. The new list Is as fol
lows : President , B. C. Adams , Lin
coln ; vice president , F. II. Brooks ,
Lincoln ; secretary and treasurer ,
Frank McMastor , Beatrice. Executive
committee E. A. Bullock , Norfolk ;
B. P. Egan , Nebraska City ; William
I. Scoutt , Kearney. Those retiring
are Joel M. Roberts of York as vice
president and L. W. Schwingel as
treasurer , neither caring to continue
in an official position.
No Meeting Place Named.
No meeting place was named for
1911 , but the executive committee ,
which includes the three principal of
ficers , was empowered to mnke a
choice. President Adams extended an
Invitation for the association to meet
In Lincoln again. Before adjourning ,
the convention on Bullock's motion
extended a vote of thanks to the New
Lindell hotel management for its
courtesies and attentions , to the news
papers for publicity of the proceed
ing , nnd to the Llncojn Traction
company for turnishing a special car
on which members were taken to in
spect the plants of that corporation
and the Lincoln Gao & Electric Light
Didn't Stick to Text.
Mr. Bullock's speech was easily the
leading feature of the day's proceed
ings. Ho took the floor , as ho said ,
to make a report of the Iowa conven
tion hold recently at Sioux City , but
soon passed off of thnt subject nnd
begnn discussing the part of Mayor
Love's address to which he had taken
"Tho next time our association
meets , " said Bullock , "I hope it will
bo In a place where we will be wel
comed. If I have anything to do with
it , I will try to llnd some city which
will feel honored to have us como and
glad to receive the money wo pay for
hotel accommodations , cigars and stuff
like that. Perhaps we can find a city
whose mayor will not Insult us when
ho Is graciously asked to give an ad'
dross of welcome.
"When wo met at Omaha last year ,
Mayor Dahlman spoke. Ho Is not ol
my politics and on some things I
don't believe the same way ho does ,
I have heard two or three times that
Mayor Dahlman drinks too much , but
I want to say that he's a gentleman ,
Ho may bo opposed to county option ,
but he's a gentleman. It has boon
whispered also that once or twice In
his life ho has played a few cards ,
but he's a gentleman. "
The word "gentleman" was pro
nounced with line scorn each time ,
Indicating that the speaker's opinion
of Mayor Love was quite different.
Bullock continued :
"Mayor Dahlmnn never went out ol
his way to slap any man , woman or
child. Ho Is n man. and If you know
him you'll like him. even If you don't '
like his politics. Ho would not stand
up and make statements which wore
untrue , through Ignorance , nor would
ho want to hurt your feelings In any
such way. He Is too smart nnd too
truthful n man to stand before you
nnd lie. 1 hope that somewhere In
Nebraska we shall receive an Invita
tion from some city thnt has n gen
tleman for Its mayor nn Intelligent
gentleman , If you please. "
Bullock concluded his speech and
loft the Moor at this point. There was
some applause on one side of the room
from Omaha men and a few others ,
among whom Bullock had been sitting
before ho addressed the convention.
There was no further demonstration
either way , and President Adams
stated that the convention would ad
journ for luncheon.
Adams Bids for convention.
Upon calling the convention to or
der In the afternoon , President Adams
spoke as follows :
" 1 nm very anxious personally that
the convention next year shall come
to Lincoln , and In advocating Lincoln
as the next meeting place I want to
point out one or two features In refer
ence to Lincoln as a location. You
will nil hnvo to admit , I believe , thnt
the newspapers in Lincoln have given
us very fair consideration In writing
up our meetings ; they have given us
prominent places In the newspapers
and have written what we have said.
It Is possible for our papers to give ns
much more publicity than the Omaha
papers , for Instance , can give us.
What publicity we do get here shows
up more prominently than it does
"In reference to Mayor Love's re
marks , I must say this In Justice to
the mayor , that he has made about
the same speech that he made to us
to nearly every convention that has
come to Lincoln , nnd he wns Just un
fortunate In giving us the same line of
talk thnt the others get.
"As has already been pointed out by
Mr. Bullock , we have been fortunate
In getting everybody to come to our
convention , to attend our meetings
and take an active part. That has
been largely due to the fact that we
have had no other attraction of great
er or less Importance and you have
nnd to come here , and I nm boosting
for Lincoln on tills proposition nnd I
hope to get this convention here next
Mr. Bullock offered an expression
seconding part of President Adams'
remarks. He closed the Incident by
"I want to endorse what has been
said In regard to the newspapers of
Lincoln , heartily ; they have given us
very fair reports and very full re
ports , considering their space , and
.hoy have liberally given us space in
their newspapers. I am informed dur
ing the noon hour that Mayor Love
never thought that lie was doing any
thing wrong or that he was making
any misstatement ; he was simply
mistaken , and if that Is intended as
nn apology It is accepted as such by
Wayne Normal Notes.
The new term opened the 2.th of
last month with an enrollment equal
to that of a year ago.
Prof. John Power , who cnme from

Twain as Horsethlef.
Deadwood , S. D. , May 7. As far
back as 18G4 , when he was a raw
newspaper correspondent nt Carson
City , Nov. , the late Mark Twain
showed the humor that was after
ward to be the dominant character
istic of his life. The story of how
he posed as a horsethief , and the pho
tograph lie used for that purpose ,
have never before been published.
They are in the possession of Major
A. J. Simmons of this city , a former
chum of Clemens , and one of the coconspirators -
conspirators in the joke.
Major Simmons , Clemens and the
late Judge William H. Claggett of
this city were intimate friends in
Carson City in 1SG1 , just at the time
when three horsethleves were being
sought by the vigilantes. Twain con
ceived the Idea of posing as the crimi
nals , and took Simmons and Claggett
to the photographer's , where the trio
had their picture taken. Twain then
wrote on the back of the photograph ,
"Three villlans recently hung by the
vigilantes nt Aurora , Nov. , " nnd the
day after the hanging circulated the
photograph 1n Carson City to such
good effect that .many who did not
know tlio originals in the photograph
took them for the dead bandits.
