Mr. Knenlo's report shows that the
Wlnnobngoes are becoming Industri
ous and sober. Not more than twenty
or twonty-tlvo members of the tribe
are now claused as drunkards , whllo
hundreds of them are fanning Intelli
gently with excellent prospects for
good crops. Two years , igo the Win-
iiobagoes had a bad reputation among
the Indians of the country. They wore
counted drunkards and loafers. They
liavo practically lost that bad reputa
tion now and and hundreds of the
members of the- tribe are pointing
with pride to the good work now being -
The twelve men who are the coun
cilman for the tribe are among the
progressives. Most of them nro well
educated and they live In respectable
homes nnd work on their farms or at
their trades. They have greatly as
sisted Mr. Knealo In building up the
better spirit that now pefineatcs the
tribe. Under the Influence of the In
dians of the better class the members
of the tribe have helped to run out

At a council held this week , nt the
Flagpole hill Superintendent Knealo
announced the names of the Wlnno-
Imgocs who will bo permitted to de
their own leasing In coming seasons.
The department has decided to put
this responsibility upon the Wlnneba-
goes In order to prepare them for the
tlmo three years bonce when the trust
on their lands will expire. It Is the
doslro of the department to. make the
Wlnnebagoes assume business respon
sibilities as rapidly as they are able.
The superintendent's annual report
shows that the Wlnnebagoes are farmIng -
Ing about 8,000 acres of their own
land tbis year. Inspection by the ex
port farmers of the reservation Indi
cated that much of the land has been
efficiently farmed. Some tracts of
corn and oats owned by ambitious
Wlnnebagoes are every bit as good as
that of white lessees close at hand ,
according to the reports of the ex
port farmers who are each In charge
of half of the Wlnnebago reservation.
One Wlnnebago farmer has 200 acres
of land under cultivation and his
crops are In excellent shape. About
GOO Wlnnebagoes are now farming
moro than garden spots , this number
being a great Increase over that of
The plan of employing expert farm
ers to assist the Indians on tl'e reser
vations was formulated by Fred H.
Abbott , assistant commissioner ; of In
dian affairs , soon after he was appoint
ed , and by agreement with Commis
sioner Valentine this part of the ad
ministration was put under the
charge of Mr. Abbott. The two
expert farmers on the Wlnnebago res
ervation have had the work of the
Indians constantly In mind. Every In
dian who attempted to farm has been
visited many times during the spring
and sumnipr. Indians have been as
sisted In the purchase of teams and
cows and seed grain. They have been
advised as to the sale of stock and
grain. The result has been most sat
isfactory , according to the superlnton
dent's report. He predicts that with
each year a greater number of Win
nebagoes will be making their own
livings from their own farms.
Madison Post : Chief Kennedy has
opened a campaign against auto speed
ing and states that be has determined
so far as it is in bis power to see that
the buzz wagons keep within the lim
it of the law. The chief states that
lie has endeavored to be fair with
the scorchers , but that they have not
boon inclined to be fair with him.
Dr. Smart appeared before bis honor ,
Judge Tannery , Thursday afternoon
nnd was taxed $10 and costs for speed
Several stop watches are now be
ing held on scorchers and It Is th
intention to keep a full and complete
record witnessed by two or three per
sons. In fact , there Is already one
record about a foot long which maybe
bo sprung at any time.
Water for Carter.
Carter News : The Western Town-
site company sent out a well drilling
outfit to this point this week , for the
purpose of sinking wells for the water
system which will soon be nut In at
this place. The outfit arrived here
last Monday evening and Tuesday
morning went to work. That Carter
will have an abundance of water
hereafter Is now an assured fact. Wa
ter was struck at forty feet In sand
and gravel and it Is of the purest
kind. This will Indeed bo the best
of news for the citizens of Carter ,
as well as all these Interested In the
development of the thriving little city.
A town without a good supply of wa
ter Is as a rule up against a very hard
proposition , and it Is gratifying indeed
to know that Carter will not have this
draw-back to contend with.
Just what kind of a water system
will bo put in here Is not yet decided.
There Is a difference of opinion as to
whether it will bo best to sink one
largo well or several small ones , but
tills will be determined later on at a
meeting of the citizens and the offi
cials of the townslto co'mp'any , which
wo understand will soon be held.
Now that it is conceded by nil that
Carter has plenty of water , and what
la more , water of the best quality , all
haste flhould ho made to have the sys
There Is nothing that will adver-
11riii a town , and especially a new
town , better than a good water sys
tem , flood water Is one of the neces
sities of life , and there arc not many
people who wish to locate In a town
where It cannot bo furnished. Let us
all get together and aid as much as
we can In bringing about the comple
tion of the proponed water system.
County Jail Crowded.
Madison Chronicle : The present
rowded condition of the county jail
both In the prison portion and In the
' residence portion , furnished the very
strongest kind of an argument in fav
or of turning over the jail building
entirely to Jail purposes and the buildIng -
Ing of a separate building on the court
house grounds for a sheriff's resi
dence. Wo believe this should bo
done , and done speedily , not merely
because of the present condition of
affairs , but because with the growtn
of the county * Its needs are growing
and the same condition that now ex
ists Is likely to occur nt any time.
At present the deputy sheriff who oc
cupies the living rooms In the jail
building finds himself crowded for
proper room for his family. This to
gether with the fact that there is nut
cell room for as many prisoners a1 *
are now In the Jail ( and the number
may Increase at any tlmo ) and to
gether with the further fact that what
ever family may occupy the Jail buildIng -
Ing is bound to be In too close proxi
mity to all sorts of characters who
may find themselves Inmates of the
jail , all Is a strong argument against
the present condition of affairs , and
In favor of a separate residence. The
present condition of affairs is not only
uncomfortable and disagreeable in the
extreme , at all times , but often a posi
tive menace lo the health of the ofii-
cor's family , If not to the morals of
his growing children. These words
are not Inspired by any word from
the sheriff or his deputy nor from any
other source have they been suggest
ed to us , but merely the result of our
observations. No one who will looic
the situation squarely In the face for
a moment can deny that the need for
a seperate residence Nfor the jailer ,
whoever1 may be , is great.
Stole His Clothes.
I'lainvlew Republican : A Niobrara
man who was taking a solitary dip
in the Missouri river at that place
last week left his clothes and horse
on the bank of the stream. A sneak
thief secured the borso and took along
the clothing. After enjoying his bath
the young man discovered his loss. In
the absence of a fig leaf he sought the
friendly branches of a willow tree
and made his way to a farm near by ,
dressed In cannibal fashion. We hope
It will not prove to be the editor of
the Niobrara Tribune who was the

Dallas News : Grading contractors
at work on the Northwestern exten
sion west from Dallas were served
with a notice of a temporary injunc
tion , issued at the Instances of Miss
Eleanor Sallee , a homesteader , two
miles southeast of Colome. The con
tractors are restrained from operation
on Miss Bailee's farm pending adjudi
cation of her claim for right-of-way
There arises in the case a peculiar
question in the matter of a home
steader's title. The tract of land from
which the grading contractors are
temporarily tabooed was taken up
under a filing by Otto Schnleder of
Mitchell who held No. 4 in the Trlpp
county land opening. Several months
ag6 be made right-of-way settlement
with the railroad company , receiving
the sum of $305 , although his entry
was at that tlrne under contest by
Miss Sallee. Subsequently the con
testant's rights were held to be good
and she was given a filing. She de
nies the validity of the settlement
made with the original entryman and
Is promoting a personal claim for
Both federal and state laws make
provision for the legal acquisition of
railroad right-of-way through home
stead lands , and the right of a home
steader to make settlement of this
kind is unquestioned , unless adverse
rights are affected
Rate Start Fire.
Stanton Register : August Hartman
had the misfortune to have his barn
burn down Monday morning at 9
o'clock. Ho was at work out in the
field and saw the building on fire.
Ho lost all his harness , but the set
he was using and a new top buggy.
The loss will equal $400. Mr. Hart
man does not know how the building

knawlng matches In a coat ho had

Acid in His Eye.
Battle Creek Enterprise : W. S
Justice , residing northwest of Battle
Creek , had a painful experience the
other day. He had been having a little
tlo trouble with his eyes and was us
ing a harmless lotion as a remedy.
Mistaking a bottle of diluted carbolic
acid for the lotion , be used some of
the llery stuff on his eye. Fortunately
the acid was not very strong , though

Bryan Loses On Test Vote ,
Grand Island , Neb. , July 2G. On a
test vote late this afternoon , it seemed
apparent that Mr. Bryan would go
down to sure defeat on the county op
On n test vote In an amendment of
fered by Mr. Bryan against elimina
tion of debate on resolutions to bo
submitted to the convention , the Bry
an amendment was defeated by a vote
of 4G5 to 394. The original motion
was made by G. M. Hitchcock.
The defeat of the Bryan amendment
precluded the delivery of the contem
plated speech of Mr. Bryan before the
convention for the adoption of county '
option unless made as a part of the i
minority report. i
The motion made by Mr. Hitchcock
upon which the test vote was made
"Resohed , That all proposed plat
form planks or declarations of tills
wnventlon shall bo presented or re
ferred to the resolutions committee
without discussion and shall not be
brought before the convention except
when embraced In a majority or mi
nority report of that committee. "
No Quarter Given.
A fight for supremacy with quarter
neither given nor asked between the
former followers of William J. Bryan
and their one-tlmo leader was the sit
uation presented when the convention
was called to order today.
County option was the issue that
divided the delegations and the Insist
ence of Mr. Bryan that a county option
plank be Inserted in the platform was
combatted by n majority of almost
two to one of the 866 delegates.
Within the ranks of those who op
posed county option many factional
differences existed , which the candi
dates of rival leaders augmented , but
when the gavel of the chairman fell
the majority was solidly aligned
against the long time democratic lead
er of Nebraska , who apparently waste
to meet his first defeat at the hands
of the Nebraska democrats.
Bryan Won't Back Down.
The attempt of several Intimate
friends of Mr. Bryan to make him re
cede from his radical stand on county
option had been unavailable and Gov
ernor Shallenbergor and Mayor Dahl-
man , once his loyal adherents , stood
firmly against the granting of any
concessions to him.
A corollary of the county option
fight was seen In the contest of Con
gressman Hitchcock and R. L. Met-
calfe for the democratic nomination
for United States senator. Although
the convention contemplated no action
on the contest , It was evident that the
political fortunes of Mr. Metcalfe , the
associate editor of Mr. Bryan's publi
cation , were bound up with those of
his chief and that the downfall of Mr.
Bryan before the convention meant
also the elimination of Mr. Metcalfe's
candidacy for the senate. This in
spite of the fact that Mr. Metcalfo did
not share In the view of Mr. Bryan
on the county option Issue , having de
clared that the matter would better
be relegated to the legislature for ad
Split on 8 O'clock Lav/ .
Many delegations were split on the
question of the endorsement of the S
o'clock closing law and a fight In the
ranks of the majority against county
option wds anticipated.
It was not expected that the entire
work of the convention could be
crowded Into one session , and a night
session was planned.
The convention was called to order
at 2 p. m. and C. J. Smythe was at
once named as temporary chairman.
Mr. Smyth in his speech before the
convention made a plea for party unity
asserting that the disorganized condi
tion of the republican party made suc
cess assured if party differences were
buried after the primaries. A/notice
able feature of his speech was an utter
absence of any direct reference of any
kind to Mr. Bryan.
Fire on Stlrk Farm.
Battle Creek Enterprise : Fire de-
storyed the barn on the farm of Mrs.
Clara Stlrk , east of Battle Creek , to
gether with a large granary , corn crib
and machine shed. Everything In the
barn , including grain and harness was
burned , though no stock was Injured.
The machinery In the shed was saved ,
but about 1,000 bushels of corn and
some oats was a total loss.
Aside from the fact that the fire
originated In the hay , nothing Is now
known. The loss is estimated at about
$2,000 with insurance to the amount
of $860 In the Madison. Country Farm
ers" Mutual company.
Break up the Dishes.
Madison Chronicle : Deputy Sher
iff J. M. Smith now has nearly a doz
prisoners In the county jail , including
the six boy "bandits" from Norfolk
and some of the crowd seem inclined
to play at "rough house" at times
with the result that Mr. Smith's dish
es are not lasting as well as they
ought to with only natural wear and
tear , and he has been compelled to
replenish his outfit with enamel ware ,
which cannot be so readily broken.
Mr. Smith is not very highly elated
over the prospects for profit on his
"boarders , " considering the number
of dishes he Is compelled to buy.

Played Ball Twenty Years Ago.
Twenty-two years ago Norfolk had
n paid baseball team that was fast ,
and it is interesting to note that it
defeated the Lincoln Western League
team with ease. Harry Lodor , now a
prominent Norfolk cafe man , was Nor
folk's star right fielder , and In the
Lincoln team George O'Toole , owner
of a Norfolk pool hall and official um
pire in the Norfolk city baseball
league today , was second baseman.
Following is the story of a game be
tween those teams , as printed in The
News at that tlmo :
The battle between the Lincoln
Western League and Norfolk clubs
was a rather slow affair , and the audi
ence left at Its close with a look of
weariness depleted on their counten
ances. The locals had the game from
the start , and the visitors were only
saved from a complete shoutout by the
general ennui and wild and woolly
playing of the home team in the fifth
Inning. McAllister , though a member
of the Lincoln club was a good um
pire and did his work honestly and
well , though the visitors kicked a
good deal because he refused to take
a player's word for what he didn't
see , and call Edinger out for not
touching first base. It Is to be hoped
the visitors will put up a better game
this afternoon. Below is yesterday's

NEED CANCELLING MACHINE.
Norfolk Postoffice Still Working With
Old Hand Methods.
Postmaster John R. Hays believes
It Is possible that In time the postolllce
department will do away with the
back-stamping of all mall received In
Norfolk which will make It possible
for the local postolllce to deliver mall
to citizens moro promptly. Although
not certain that this will go into effect
Mr. Hays says the back-stamping Is
really not necessary and causes callers -
ers for mail at the postofilco to watt
a long time before they can bo given
their mall at the general delivery win
dow or In their private boxes.
The back-stamping Is done immedi
ately when the screen wagon brings
the mall from the trains. The mall
sacks are opened and the postal em
ployes Immediately begin stamping
each letter , card or parcel with the
"received" Norfolk stamp. The stamp
they use Is the old fashioned kind ,
the Norfolk office not being as fortu
nate as other cities smaller In size ,
in having a cancelling machine.
After each letter is stamped , which
is slow work , the letters are filed In
their separate departments and then
the windows are opened.
In the meantime a large number r
of people have crowded the lobby and
are many times Impatient over their
When asked why Norfolk does not
have one of these machines , Postmas
ter Hays said :
"I have thought about It a good deal.
It would save much time and give
quicker service to the largo crowd
which usually waits In the lobby when
the mall Is received. I really believed
the department would not furnish me
one. But we should have one. On the
other band , I have believed that the
department would In tlmo do away
with the back-stamping , but even with
that away we could do quicker work
with the cancelling machine. "
When asked about the cancelling
machine postolllco employes say the
hand stamp often times cannot bo
read , while a cancelling machine's la
plain , with Norfolk standing In full
view of every receiver of a letter.
This they say is a great advertisement
for the city. Norfolk has electric cur
rent , and should the department fur
nish a cancelling machine hero It
could bo run by electricity. It saves
tlmo , gives prompt service , and every
postmark Is plain , say the postofilco
forco. Towns such as Columbus
York. Hastings , Grand Island , Beat'
