TUB NORFOLK WBEKLL NEWSJOURNAL. . FRIDAY , jrTLV 29 , 11)10. ) REDS MAKE GOOD FARMERS. Croat Strides Shown by the Wlnne- bngo Indiana. ! WlnnobaKo , Nol ) . , .July 2(5. ( Never Itnvo ntty of Undo Sinn's Iiullnn wards ninilo HUcli progress toward becoming genuine American citizens n have' ' theNobrnckn Wlnnobngoes during the past eighteen nuiiitliH. The nnniuil re port of Supt. Albert 11 Knoalo has been niibnilttod to thu department nnd It shows advancement morally , flnan- clally nnd every other way which Is remarkable. 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 - ing done. 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 the bootleggers , have assisted In mak ing the WJnnelmgoos pay more atten tion , to the marriage ceremony and have helped to flro the ambition of lazy ones toward farming their own lands. 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 other years. 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. Against Speeding. 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 ing. 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 tem completed. 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 victim. To Enjoin the Extension. 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 damages. 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 ? 1,000. 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 caught flro unless some rats got to knawlng matches In a coat ho had hanging in the barn. 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 the burns demanded the attention of a physician. 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 tion Issuo. 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 was : "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 justment. 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. Cuming County Candidates. West Point. Neb. , July 26.

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.

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 long wait. 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' rice and Nebraska City have cancel- ling machines.
