for Norfolk grown apples and during

in the Rosebud country the demand is
equally as good for Norfolk grown ap-
pies and the wholesale fruit company
report that most of their shipments
have been made to this country.
Gardener Joseph Wiles of the state
hospital has been busy during the past
few days picking and packing apples
at that institution. These apples have
been purchased by the Evans company -
pany , who find much convenience in
the purchase of home grown fruit ,
The demand has been so great recent
ly , they say , that they have been un
able to keep up with It.

Fox of Madison kept the local team

judgment and the locals hammered
him for four hits and a home run ,
bringing In seven scores. The dose
was repeated by the locals with a
home run , two two-baggers and three
singles in the eighth with six scores ,
Fox had a good arm and pitched well ,
but bad judgment on his part made
the score loom up large. His support
was first class.

Kralm were features.
Heavy wind blowing clouds of dust
over the diamond and the frequent de
lays because of long waits between
the heats of races which were being
run on the driving park track causei
the big score. Fourteen hits were
taken from Fox and Denton allowec
Madison to get eleven safe ones
Both sides were handy with the bat

ATTACKS SUPREME COURT.
Senator Owen Defends Recall nnd Ex *
presses Fnlth in People.
Wanhjj"toii : , Aug. 1. Senwo criti
cism oirSHuprctnt' cemrt eif the Unit
ed States itinrke'd the' spe-ecli of Sen
ator Owen of Oklahoma , who ndvonit-
od before the senate the adoption of
his bill providing for the oloctloti and
roe-nil of federal Judges. This bill pro-
vldos thntv any Justlco of the supreme
couit of any Judge of any other United
States court ohall bo subject to roe-nil
by a resolution of congress ; that all
district and circuit Judges of the Unit
ed States shall bo elected by the voters
ers of the district or circuit nnd Hint
tholr tenure of office bo four years.
Answering the contention of oppon
ents of the recall of judges that thu
electorate would not bo so conserva
tive In the exorcise of power of recall
as would the national legislature or
the state legislatures , Senator Owen
snld thnt the electorate of the Amor-
lean states Is abundantly consorvntlvu
and moves more slowly than its pro
gressive representatives would move.
The people , ho maintained , have been
trained to glvo the benefit of the doubt
to any ono assailed , nnd when In
doubt they will nlwnya vote no.
Never elurlng the ten yonrs thnt the
right of recall has existed In Oregon ,
said the speaker , have the people
availed themselves of It against u
Judge , "although there Is ono case
ending there now , which , undoubtedly ,
will bo decided wisely by the people. "
The reactionary Tory argument thnt
the people are turbulent , wild and
visionary , unduly passionate , compris
ing an irresponsible mob , not fit for
power , was hold by the speaker to
como with poor grace from those who
held their honors , dignities and sala
ries from these snmo peoplo.
Rtiocs was laid upon the popular
sentiment thnt senators should bo
chosen by direct vote of the peoplo.
The senator hold that If the people
have intelligence enough to elect sen
ators nnd members of the house they
would not bo Inciting In that qunllty If
It should como to the election or recall
of a Judge.

Mississippi Congressman Character
izes Bill as Robbery.
Washington , Aug. 1. Rep. Wither-
spoon of Mississippi , speaking on the
j cotton tariff revision bill , character-
, Izcd as "legnl lobbory" n tariff which
raises more revenues than are neces
sary to defray the public expenses.
The tariff , ho declared , greatly in
creases the cost of production.
"Tho only sensible , logical deduc
tion from this , " ho continued , "Is thnt
' all the taxes on what the mills buy
, and on what its laborers consume.
should be abolished , if the purpose is
to benefit and foster the cotton mills.
I If wo could not only reduce one-half of
the cost of cotton cloth production
but in some way gather up all the
wealth nnd redistribute It among the
people who produced It , every cotton
mill In America would be nblo to run
. on full time , to pny its laborers living
j wages , and to sell its product at such
prices as would produce fair profits. "
I Mr. Wltherspoon declnred the the
ory of protection was to Increase the
j cost of production by levying enor
mous tnxes on that cotton mills bought
and on all that Its operatives con
"Then , " he charges , "as a compen
sation to the overburdened mill , It
proposes to rob the American laborer ,
professional men nnd other classes of
, the consuming public to the extent of
, making the cotton mills profits as
largo or larger. "
WANTS TO BEGIN SENTENCE.
Antelope County Horse Thief Anxious
to Get to Prison.
i Neligh , Neb. , Aug. 1. Special to The
j News : Harry Barlow , who Is confined
in the Antelope county jail on the
charge of steiiling a horse and saddle
from Tom Adams at Elgin last Mon
day , desires to receive his sentence
as soon as possible that ho may start
serving out his time. He is a young
man about 28 years of age and appar
ently of a bright disposition. In
speaking of the instance in which ho
made off with the horse he said , "I do
not know why I did It ; I was on the
point of turning back several times
and restore the stolen property , but
for reasons unknown I did not. I
want to start serving my time at once.
I do not want my folks to hear of this
until I am away. "
Owing to the confession and that
sentence must be Imposed by the Judge
of the district court , It will probably
be another week before his wishes
will be granted. Judge Welsh tele
phoned Deputy Sheriff Bennett that
he would be in Neligh about the first
of next week , but would give him the
day and date In the next few days.
