Sees Need of a Park.
Norfolk , July 1. Editor News :
Much has been said recently of the
necessity of the city's acqulrinj
grounds for a public park. Probablj
the great majority of our people wouh
like to see this , if it can be done with
out very heavy expense , but nothinf
more than talk has developed fron
the agitation of the matter so far
Now It would seem that it Is not f
very difficult nor expensive undertak
ing , as ample authority is conferrec
by law upon the city to acquire by pur
chase or condemnation lands for thli
purpose. If our people uro anxious fo :
a public park they can wusily get one
The city Is empowered to acquire lauds
for parks on public grounds and to
Improve the same , and to raise money
for that purpose by issuing bonds not
exceeding 110.000 in amount whenever
given the power to do so by a majority
vote of the electors of the city at a
general or special election called for
that purpose.
Now any of our citizens who would
like to sec this done can start it going
by obtaining and presenting to the
city council a petition asking for the
election to vote such amount as may
be deemed necessary , not exceeding
$10,000 , and 1 doubt not the council
will readily submit tbo question when
ever such petition , signed by a re
spectable number of the voters Is pre
sented , and the expense of such elec
tion should not deter as it will be very
small.
After the money Is thus raised there
IH provision in the law for the appoint
ment by the judge of the district court
of park commissioners consisting of
three persons , resident freeholders of
the city , who shall have charge of
purchasing and Improving the grounds ,
or if thought best park commission
need not be called for , hut the matter
left with the city council to manage.
After this is done and grounds appro
priated for the purpose have been se
lected , the same can be purchased , but
if the owner is not disposed to sell on
reasonable terms , the city may con
demn and appropriate it. Lands thus
taken for park purposes shall first be
valued by tbo appraisement of three
disinterested freeholders of the city
and the value or amount this fixed by
the board of appraisers if approved
by the city council , shall be deposited
with the city treasurer for the owner ,
and the city may then take possession
of and Improve the same. As has
been shown it is not a difficult matter ,
nor need It be an expensive one for
the city to acquire grounds for park
mrposes , for if bonds are voted to the
imlt the Interest on $10,000 4'/fc per
cent bonds would require a levy or an
assessment sufficient to not only pay
the Interest but provide a sinking fund
'or the redemption of bonds at matur-
ty , so that those who want to see
; iarks provided by the city for the pub
lic have only to get a move" on them
selves and need not wait for the pub
ic authorities or anybody else to start
t. A Citizen.
The Norfolk Commercial club is at
present working on a petition looking
lo the voting of bonds for a city park.
The petition is now being circulated.
Another Carrier for the City.
R. E. Truex of St. Louis has been
transferred from the St. Louis post-
office to be carrier for the Norfolk
postoffice. Mr. Truex Is busy today
getting acquainted with the streets of
the city. Mr. Truex brought with him
to Norfolk his wife and two children.
Postmaster Hays says that the post-
office department has found that they
have too many carriers at some cities
and is transferring them to points
where they are short of help. With
the addition of one more city carrier
to Norfolk , the city is being redistrict-
ed.
There have been three carrier dis
tricts heretofore and there will now be
four.

As soon as Edgewater citizens are
prepared for city delivery , in the way
of crossings and sidewalks , Postmas
ter Hays says the city delivery will
be extended to that portion of the city ,
The patrons of the new service will
have mail boxes at a convenient place
before they will be served.

Gold Attacks Anti-Glft Law.
Lincoln , July 1. Applying for an In
Junction against the enforcement o !
the Housch anti-free gift enterprise
measure passed at the last session o :
the legislature , William Gold of thli
city made the first attack on an enact
ment of the 1911 session In the federa
court here. The assault on the meas
ure comes from Gold because of it !
inclusion of trading stamps in the list
of enterprises prohibited for the gaii
of trade.
The provision of the new law statei
that "any gift promise , stated or im
plied to give or bestow or In any man
ner to hold out the promise of a glf :
or bestowal of any article or thing , foi
or in consideration of the purchase b :
any persons of any article or thing. "
Gold recites in his petition that he
entered a contract with Sperry &
Hutchinson of New Jersey for the In
stallatlon of their advertising systen
in his store and that he paid them foi
the use of their scheme so much pei
thousand stamps. The complainam
charges that the bill was enacted be
cause of the support of other mer
chants who did not favor the use o :
the trade attraction scheme by theii
rivals. Further he says that It is clasi
legislation and that many people
through thp fear of accepting the
stamps slnpe the passage of the
Housch bill have ceased to take then
and that thereby ho has lost trade , al
of which he contends is In violation o
the Fourteenth amendment to the fed
cral constitution.
A temporary restraining ordei
against Attorney General Martin haf
been Issued by Judge Mungcr of the
federal court , but it cannot be servec
until Mr , Martin returns to Lincoln.

B the finding of John H. Gates , spe
cial master In the case of the Chicago
and Northwestern railway against the
state.
The special master takes direct is
sue with Judge Sanborn In his decision
on the Minnesota rate cases.
The report of Mr. Gates will be giv
en to Judge Elliott of the South Da
kota federal court , who will render a

An appeal by the railroads Is ex
pected.
In taking exception to the methods
used by Judge Sanborn In reaching

Mr. Gates holds that the expense basis
