Govbbkob Mickkt is understood to be
considering the advisability of calling
an extra session of the legislature in
case the revenue law is declared uncon
stitutional. The governor very much
desires that suitable revenue legislation
be enacted during his term of oJkce to
increase the state's income without work
ing hardship on any one. The Lincoln
Star quotes Mickey as saying: "I have
not reached an opinion on the matter,
and will wait until after the decision of
the court is handed down before serious
ly considering the matter. I do not ex
pect the entire law to be knocked out,
but it it is something of this nature may
be necessary. The next two regular ses
sions will be rather busy with other
matters and will not have the time to
devote to revenue legislation that the
subject demands. It is one thing that
cannot be handled lightly and hastily as
some other legislation. Every item in a
revenue law must be carefully scrati
nized for errors, for the best legal talent
in the country is always awaiting an op
portunity to pick flaws in the record and
in the law itself." "An extra session
would be neoessary if we desire a new
revenue law," said Private Secretary
Allen. "Of course I mean if the present
law is declared unconstitutional. Next
winter will not beat all favorable for
the enaction of good revenue legislation.
There will be too' many other things to
think of. The senatorial contest and
other matters will take up the entire
time. We can get along under the old
law, if the present one is declared not
valid, bat it would mean no new legisla
tion for several sessions."
Sknatok Diktbich has been accused
by District Attorney Summers of having
accepted money and property for the
seoariag of an appointment. The char
ges were made before the federal grand
jury Monday afternoon. The others
mentioned in the batch of indictments
are Postmaster Fischer and Deputy
Postmaster Fraacis. The indictments
are the outgrowth of a personal and
political fued between District Attorney
8ummers, who has been seeking re-ap
pointment, and Senator Dietrich, who
has refused to endorse Summers and has
been pushing a competitor for his place.
The grand jury has been at work investi
gating ine Hastings postomoe case ever
since it convened last week Monday and
a host of witnesses have been in attend
aaos to give evidenoe on the subject in
hand. The same subject, it is under
stood, wss up for investigation before
the May grand jury, which, however,
failed to find bills, and District Attorney
Summers, in his persistent pursuit of
Senator Dietrich, insisted on re-opening
the investigation with the present grand
jury and pushing it with all the pressure
and influence he could bring to bear,
with its present result. The story of the
Hastings postofitoe fight is n long one.
extending back before Senator Dietrich
was elected governor, and the trouble
seems .to be an entirely personal matter
between different political factions.
A sraciAi, to the daily papers from
David City says that Lena Margaret
Lillie, who was convicted at the Febru
ary, 1903, term of district court of mur
dering her husband, Harvey Lillie, in
that city, and sentenced to imprison
ment for life, has again broken into
court, thia time aa plaintiff in three civil
actions. At the time Harvey Lillie
murdered he carried fraternal insurance
aggregating the sum of $8,000, $750 of
which was made to the 12-year-old
daughter, Edna, which has been paid.
In the balance of $7,250 Mrs. Lillie
named as the beneficiary. Three
rate petitions were filed on Wednesday
last, one against the Ancient Order of
United Workmen, in which she asks
judgment in the sum of $2,000; one
againat the Modern Woodmen of Amer
ica for $3,000, and "one against the 8a-
preme Tribe of Ben-Hur for the sam of
$2,250. The original amount carried ia
the Ben-Hur was $3,000, but the $700
has been paid to the daughter, Edna.
Mrs. Lillie is represented by Attorneys
Matt Miller and C. H. Aldrich, who de
fended her in the criminal case. It is
the general opinion that these orders
will fight the cases to a finish aad aa
interesting legal contest ia looked for.

Oscar 8. Msnsfinld nast death while at
his post of duty as brakemaa for the
Union Pacific at Madison, Wednesday
at 1230 o'clock, ia a most distressing
saanner. Tho freight train was an extra,
under the charge of Conductor Mark
Burke, and while switching ia Madison
six oars were .uncoupled from the main
train and sent down grade at a
swift rate. It ia thought that Mr. Mans
field walked to the end of the six cars
and ia the darkness of the night, not
being able to see, and supposing that
there wsa another ear before him,
stepped from the car. Footprints show
ing where he had lit on the ground were
plainly seen. After falling, the end of
the oar struck and threw him a distance
of twenty-nine feet, breaking his baok,
both legs and severing the right hand
from the arm. .
One strange thing concerning the ac
cident is that the car that struck him
was derailed and ran for several feet
before stopping. The trainmen believe
that thia was done by the wheel of the
ear striking the heel of his shoe, and be
cause the car was almost empty and
therefore quite light.
At an inquest held Wednesday after
noon in Madison the jury decided that

There can be ao doubt that one rea
soa why cities did not grow no rapidly
la the seventeenth and eighteenth cea
turlea aa In the nineteenth Is the ex
cessively high death rate that pre
vailed during the earner period. The
flood of Immigration, mighty as It wss,
did little, more than make good the
places of those citizens who fell vic
tims to grievous sanitary conditions.
From the facts that can be obtained
it seems to have been universally true
that almost up to the beginning of the
nineteenth century the death' rate of
large cities exceeded the birth rate.
This was not because the btfth rate
was abnormally low, but because the
deatii rate was abnormally high. In
the mediaeval dty.both birth rate aad
death rate were far higher than at
