senger law of 1907.
In the argument of the case in the

"Governor Hughes bad the moral
courage to veto a measure of popular
I. favor , " said Judge Smith McPherson ,
In holding the consideration of the
legislature j was Immaterial In this
case , "because he believed the question
tion had not been fully considered.
But the relations of the governor to
the proposed legislation and that of a
court to legislation consummated are
entirely different. "
Nevertheless Justice McPherson
held the law did not grant a reason
able return to the railways.
Now Justice Hughes is to pass in
Judgment j on the opinion of Judge Mc
Pherson. j Arguments on the validity
of the passenger law and the max
imum i freight law of Missouri enacted
in i 1907 will be concluded today , ac
cording to arrangements entered Into

NORFOLK FARMER'S CHILDREN
FEAR FOR LIVES.
FATHER A FIEND WHEN DRUNK
Peter Koberg Has Been Taken to the
County Jail at Madison and His
Children Sent to an Orphans' Home.
Mother Mysteriously Disappeared.
Because Peter Koberg drinks him
self into such a condition that he Is
Irresponsible and when in that stage
the lives of his children are unsafe ,
Sheriff Smith arrested the man at
noon on Norfolk avenue and took him
to the county jail at Madison in an
automobile. The children Bernice ,
aged 14 , Belle 9 , Burt 10 , and William
8 were also taken to Madison , where
they will be put in charge of a matron
who arrived from Oinaha Thursday
The Kobergs live on the Harry
Heath farm , two miles southwest of
Norfolk and , according to the reports
ol Sheriff Smith and County Attorney
James Nichols , who have made a thor
ough Investigation of the case , the lit
tle children have been taught from
experience to be always on their guard
from the fear that their father would
kill them. While Koberg Is devoted
very much to his children when he is
sober , ho is reported to be a fiend
His Children Fear Him.
Ho is said to leave his children
happy at home and return a drunken
( lend and a brute. This is the descrip
tion given of the man by the county
attorney , who , through a child friend
of Bernice , was able to talk to the
little housekeeper. Her mother Is
away and her whereabouts are un
The little 14-year-old girl , who
guards over her young sister and
brothers , told a most pitiful story to
the authorities. She Is in constant
fear of her life. She and the other
children have slept In the barn and
other outbuildings of the farm when
their father came home intoxicated
from the city. The lines on the child's
face show the skill and cunningness
for protection developed far beyond
her age. She knows when trouble Is
coming and she knows how to dodge
blows directed at her and she knows
where to hide herself and her sister
and brothers. The interior of the
Koberg homo where the 14-year-old
housekeeper does all the work Is said
by the authorities to be one of the
most squalid and most miserable
liomes that can bo Imagined.
Family's Dramatic Career.
It has been a dramatic career that
the Koberg family has led. Two years
ago last April the mother took her
children and ran away from Koberg ,
going to Cincinnati. Then the mother ,
presumably Insane , deserted her flock.
They were found Inter by Koberg and
placed for a month In an orphans'
homo , but the mother never hunted
them up. Koberg believes she sui
cided. Koborg returned to Norfolk
with his babes and slnco then has
made life uncertain for tTiem by his
Mrs. Kobergs mother was Insane.

to the peaceful adjustment of the dif

The national railroad union has suc

grew strong accordingly. Arrested
leaders were charged with provoking
seditious meetings and loading violence
