Would Cut Into Our Territory.
Sioux City Is Interested In the pro
posed Valentine-Sioux City Interur
ban. Tills is what the Journal says :
The most .gigantic interurban and
power project yet launched In this section - ,
tion , with Sioux City as a primary ter
minal , was announced last night by E.
W. Cornell , president of the First Na
tional bank of Valentino , Neb. With
a special grant of congress In his pos
session ho will harness the Niobrara
river at a point four miles northeast
of Valentino , thus securing the power
necessary to operate an electric line
between Sioux City and Valentine , fur
nish electric lights to the greater num
ber of the cities along the projected
line , and still have power enough to
operate 100 miles more of electric
Mr. Cornell Is a guest at the West
hotel and will bo In Sioux City for a
few days consulting with business men
In regard to his project. With repre
sentatives of eastern bonding compa
nies of the highest financial standing
lie has Jtmt completed a minute survey
of the route the projected Interurban
will take Into Sioux City , and he has
laid the detailed statement of engl-
neers concerning his power project
before them with results of the most
encouraging nature.
Plans Nearlng Completion ,
The project , while given some little
mthuntlc notice during past years , has
uuen the development of years of con
sideration. The plans of Its originator
ire well on towards complete realiza
tion , and with the matter of Incorpo
rating n power and a railway com
pany at Pierre , S. I ) . , the next step In
ilnclng the plans on a working basis ,
Mr. Cornell last night discussed some
of the larger details of the project.
Something like four years ago Mr.
Cornell secured , through congress and
[ ho pre.ldent by special right , the
'ranchlso for water power to bo gen-
rated by the erection of a mammoth
dam across the Niobrara river near
IB ! homo town , Valentino. A gorge
llfty feet deep with a bottom 100 feet
wide , and with an opening at the top
of 310 feet will be crossed with a dam.
mid over this the water will bo drop-
lied to the turbine wheel some llfty
feet. Here a power plant , generating
7,000 horsepower from the big wheel
will bo erected and the plcnt with the
In n will represent u total Investment
) f at least $1 , 000,000.
Plenty of Power.
Some Idea of the power Is gathered
from the declaration of engineers who
leclaro that the big plant of the Nlo-
irara could move every wheel In Sioux
City , run every factory , every elevator ,
every car and still leave a balance of
! > ewer that would operate an electric
railway some 100 miles In length. The
river being harnessed , Mr. Cornell pro
posed to use his power llrst In the
movement of tralllc on an electric road
between Valentine and Sioux City , a
distance , according to the survey
made , of50 miles.
The survey , with all the engineering
details for the water power and for
the railway from Valentine to Spen
cer , Neb. , has been made , but the ex
tension east of Spencer has not been
made , and It is said ii ) be quite prob
able that this survey will bo rim at
The engineering work was done by
the W. K. Palmer company of Kansas
City , which reported on the water
power project , that with the dam stip
ulated In the plans a potentiality of
7,000 horsepower could bo easily de
veloped , with the power to operate a
line from Sioux City to Valentine , and
to furnish the electricity needed to
give the towns through which the line
passes complete lighting systems. The
cost of production of this power being
cheap , it was the declaration of engi
neers that it would bo easy to find in
vestors to back the project , with the
result that the matter was taken up
with larger eastern capitalists.
Total Cost , $5,250,000.
The specifications of the engineers
call for a roadbed such as that re
quired for steam railway work , and
the cost is estimated at between $21-
000 and $22,000 a mile , which would
bring the cost of the proposed line ,
using the lowest cost for a basis In
figuring , up to $5,250,000.
The line , Mr. Cornell says , will run
from Valentine north to Harmony ,
Neb. , and across the state line Into
South Dakota. It will follow the south
line of Todd county to the Intersection
of Todd and Tripp counties , where it
turns south Into Keya Palm county ,
passing through Springview and then
swinging northeast to Uurton. Above
Hurton it will cross the Keya Paha
river at the mouth of the Burton. It
goes northeast into Gregory county , S.
D. , passing through Jamison , Naper ,
Uutte and Spencer , and then down Into
Boyd county. Here the detailed sur
vey work ends , and from Spencer on
the exact route has not been deter
May Use Combination Bridge.
Mr. Cornell , with promoters , looked
over two routes on the trip into Sioux
City , which was completed Saturday ,
and since which day ho has been at
the West hotel. The route as roughly
proposed will run through the north
eastern portion of Holt county , and
then on through Knox , Cedar , Dixon
and Dakota counties into this city. It
is believed by some that the company
would probably use the Combination
bridge to cross the Missouri river. .
Mr. Cornell roughly drafted two prob
able routes from Spencer to Sioux
City. One proposed route would fol
low Mie Niobrara river , and , crossing
the Northwestern north of Vordigre ,
would work Into this city. The other
would bring the line out at the head
of Louise creek and would follow a
more southerly course , crossing the
Northwestern between Winnetoon and
Would Open Territory.
The proposed road would have a
territorial zone of from five to twenty
five miles In width , through one of
the richest farming sections In Nebraska
braska and South Dakota. The terrl
tory Is now meagerly served by the
Northwestern road and has vast pos
slbilities yet to be developed. The
Northwestern works through the coun
try both north and south of the pro
posed route , and all the produce , all
the banking business , and all the pur
chasing power of the territory Is now
paying tribute to Omaha.
The Omaha market is at least fifty
miles farther from the territory than
Is Sioux City , and it is properly the
field for the local jobber , and purchas
er of cattle and grain. The shippers
in portions of the territory have been
lighting for connections through the
Northwestern road with this city and |
have even offered to give the right of
way if lines were run from Newcastle
to Niobrara.
Will Pay No Damages.
Mr. Cornell will not bo forced to
pay damages for the erection of the |
dam in the Niobrara because ho owns
all the abutting property on the side
of the river on which his big power
plant will be erected , and the govern
ment military reservation stretches
away from the other sldo of the rivor.
The Niobrara river is a stationary
stream , its depth not varying more
than two Inches during the course of
a year , and in the detailed resume of
the power situation Mr. Cornell has
the government statistics for years
amply demonstrating the stationary
character of the stream. The feed
streams are never swollen , maintain
ing an average How because the rains
work Into the soil through the entire
section and through springs furnish a
constant flow of water.
The power project over which a
fight IB now on In the courts , and
which Is under thu control of 10. L.
Kirk of this city. Is not In any way
connected with the Cornell project ,
although thu site of the project Is on
thu Niobrara river. The determina
tion of the question whether the power
of Nebraska streams can be utilized
outside the state will come up for ad
judication early In June , and It IB un
derstood the power from this situ will
ho used largely In this city.
Thu Kirk project , It IB understood ,
will develop 10,000 horsepower , and
will be thoroughly developed. The
fact that numerous Interurhan pro
jects now are being pushed , with Sioux
City as a focal point , will give the
water power development ft wide
range , In the opinion of experienced

Sabath Amendment Permitting Regis
tering by Mall , Is Killed.
Senator Gamble secured the adop
tion of the conference report on the
Rosebud and Pine Ridge reservation
bills. This report eliminates the Sab
ath amendment of the house which
permitted applicants to swear to their
applications anywhere.
Dr. Kelly Has Resigned.
Assistant Physician at Norfolk Insane
Hospital Will Leave.
Dr. Ernest Kelly , assistant physi
cian at the Norfolk Insane hospital ,
has sent his resignation to Governor
Dr. Kelly says that ho has resigned
to go to Utah for the purpose of In
vestigating a very flattering offer
which will multiply his present In
come several times , If , ho accepts It.
The nature of the work Is physician in
a mining camp and Is a partnership
with a former classmate.
This is the second Norfolk hospital
ofllclal to resign within a week , P. L.
Gutzmor , the bookkeeper , having re
signed last Saturday.

Paying Space Rates.
Norfolk , Neb. , May 17. Editor
News : Commenting on my criticism
of the newspapers in my paper before
the state medical association for the
prostitution of their functions to give
publicity to fraudulent and injurious
medical remedies and agencies , Bixby
In the State Journal Inquires , "Why
blame the newspapers ? The manu
facturers make their own statements ,
furnish their own testimonials and pay
for the same regular space rates. "
That is exactly the point of my pa
per , and I had thought that the
"blame" was clearly defined. Let me
quote from my paper : "The criminal
practice of creating and fostering hab
its and perverted appetites that induce
lowered vitality , susceptibility to dis
ease and degradation to vice and
crime is a commercial iniquity. MillIons -
Ions are Invested In the business of
furnishing to expectant mothers and
Impressionable children habit-forming
and nerve-destroying dope. Medical
booze and depressive sedatives mas
querade under the alluring names of
cure-alls that are a blighting course to
mankind. The press , for a considera
tion , prostitutes Its columns to recom
mend every proprietary abomination
that beguiles the innocent into taking
dope that debases and destroys. Do
prlvo the manufacturers of their ad
vertising and the humbug would die.
Herewith are a few exhibits taken
from current newspapers and upon
which I based the above assertion :
"A true medicinal whiskey. " * * * *
* Recommended by clergymen and
prominent hospitals. * * * * * Cures
consumption , pneumonia , grip , coughs ,
colds , malarial fevers , stomach trou
bles and all wasting diseases. Sent
direct. If you need medical advice
write our medical department. "
Here Is another :
"Consumption absolutely cured In
all stages and entirely eradicated by
Alterative. Wo refer to
clergymen , priests , nuns God's mln-
istera to the sick whoso word could
not be bought for any money. "
Another :
"Cancer absolutely and completely
cured without thu use of the knlfo by"
The list is legion. There Is the sug
gestive ad to ladles who are unfortun
ate In being delayed , and another to
"men only , " and the sensational fea
ture story without a mark to disting
uish It from an editorial or news ar
ticle and containing a BUbtlo sugges
Mr. Blxby goes on to say that the
doctors are to blame for the evils of
dope taking , that they surround their
art with an aura of mystery and that
much of their prescribing Is for psy
chological reasons because people
want to be taking something , and that
people will not stand for to bo told
the truth.
Any educated person can get a work
on medicine and understand It , so
there Is no aura of mystery. The use
of latin Is , as In all professions , for
definite and scientific accuracy. GrantIng -
Ing that doctors glvo medlclnu for
psychological reasons , do they give In
jurious remedies ? You can go over
thousands of physicians' prescriptions
upon the Hies of druggists and not
find one calling for whiskey. Who
ever heard any but a charlatan guar
antee to cure every case of cancer or
consumption , and what nan anyone
think of the suggestion to consult a
distillery for medical advice ? I am
not concerned with the ethics of news
papers advertising whiskey or those
who doctor the ills of mankind , but to
persist in advertising a fraud , to mas
querade as a boon to the sick and
claim the endorsement of "God's min
isters" for a very poor article of whis
key is a palpable prostitution of the
press , even if paid space rates.
Dear Blxby , getting gear witli ease ,
Recks naught of whom wo squeeze ,
Nor whose must be the tragic fate
The excess freight to liquldirte.
Oh , nix bekanten are the tears ,
The guilt and gyves and blasted years
Adown the pathway of the race ,
Of those who pay the printer's space.

Defense in McKay Case Trying to Lay '
Foundation for New Trial.
Nellgh , Neb. , May 18. Special to
The News : The latest reports in re
gard to his condition , Henry Nagel of
Brunswick , who is now in Sioux City
under the care of Dr. Mallarian , an
old friend , is reported this morning as
getting ' along nicely.
The doctor states that no alarming
condition ( is apparent , and only a
change ' of scene for a few days will
restore i his natural health. He is still ,
at ! times worrying over the fact that
he may be accused of the Brown niur-
der. (
O. A. Williams as the attorney for
McKay rustled a great deal to secure
affidavits from several of the leading
men ' of this city yesterday. Mr. Will
iams is making an effort to secure a
new ' trial on the possibility of Mr. Na-
gel's insanity. In this respect , and
according to legal authority not inter
ested ' in the case , it is said : "It Is an
impossibility in the case of this wit
ness to prove that he was suffering
from insanity when he was upon the
witness stand for eighteen hours or
more , and the talented attorneys who
conducted ' the cross-examination were
unable to discover tills fault until this
time. H is certainly unreasonable at
this time. "
Attach Moving Picture Outfit.
Pierce , Neb. , May 18. Special to
The News : Frank McSeaton and Dick
Peebles , who have been running a
moving picture show here for the past
three months , were arrested at Nor
folk last Friday on complaint of R. H.
Patrick for jumping their board bill.
The chief of police , George Goff , noti-
fled the olllcers at Norfolk that the
young men were wanted and that they
had left the evening before and were
supposed to be In that city. They
were brought back the next day by
the sheriff of Pierce county and ar
raigned before Judge Kelley. They
acknowledged their indebtedness to
the landlord to the amount of $28 , but
claimed that they had no money to
settle the same. Thereupon the judge
fined each defendant $5 and costs , and
ordered the sheriff to keep them in
jail to serve out the amount of the
line and costs. As soon as they are
released they will be met by attachment
ment- proceedings , Messrs. Nelson & I
Johnson , automobile dealers here , hav
ing a claim against them for rental
during the most of the time they op
crated their picture show here. To
protect their claim Nelson & Johnson
attached the moving picture maculno ,
slides , lenses and other paraphernalia
belonging to the show won.
