SHORTAGE OF WATER
MANY COMPLAINTS FROM WEST

PRIOR RIGHTS ARE I6N0RE0
The State Engineer Doing All That

Is not likely to stand idly by and seo
water flowing down stream to some
other claimant who may live many
miles away. The state engineer is
unable to cause arrests and go into
court to prosecute persons who take
water out of their turn because he
has no founds to expend for such pur
poses. His two under secretaries,
Robert II. Willis of Bridgeport, and
Page T. Francis of Crawford are in
the field constantly trying to pacify
claimants and restore some semb
lance of order, but it is said the irri

water whenever they need it regard

lieved it will be hard to get juries to

communities for so doing. All that
the state engineer can do is to notify
persons complained of that they must

having prior rights are supplied with
water. If this does no good the com

courts to seek injunctions to enforce

Daring the Women.
Few realize how high-heeled, short,

feet, but the whole body of women,
says the New York Press. Such shoes
not only cause direct misery, but they
cause all manner of Indisposition, Indi

AS TO ROCK ISLAND.
The Road Falls to Pay Its Occupation
Owing to the absence of Attorney
General Thompson it Is not possible
at this time to get a statement from
the legal department as to what
would be done regarding the Rock
Island railroad, which has failed to
pay its occupation tax, and is, there
fore, under the law. incapable of do
ing business in Nebraska legally.
The law which provides for the
payment of an annual fee by corpora
tions provides the following penalty
for its violation:
Section 8 It shall be unlawful for
any corporation, delinquent under
this act, either domestic or foreign,
which has not paid the occupation
fee. together with tne penalty for
such delinquency, as in this act pre
scribed, to exercise the powers of
such corporation, or to transact any
business in this state, after the 30th
day of November next following the
delinquency. Each and every person
who exercises any of the powers of a
corporation so delinquent, either
domestic or foreign, which has not
paid the ocupation fee, together with
the penalty for such delinquency, or
who transacts any business for or In
behalf of any such corporation, after
the 30the day of November next fol
lowing the delinquency, shail be guil
ty of a misdemeanor, and upon con
viction thereof shall be punished by
a fine of not less than $100. and not
exceeding $1,000, or by imprisonment
in the county jail not less than fifty
days nor more than 500 days, or by
both such fine and imprisonment.
The Rock Island is now in litiga
tion with the state over the railroad
legislation enacted by the legislature
of 1907 and over an order issued by
the State Railway commission to
compel it to construct a crossing at
Hallam. What effect the cancella
tion of its charter will have on this
litigation Deputy Attorney General
Grant Martin would not say, not hav
ing looked into the question thorough
ly. The Rock Island is not in very good
odor with the lesal department of the
state or the railway commission be
cause of its refusal to carry out or
ders of the commission. In the Hal
lam case, where the railroad was pe
titioned to construct a crossing in
order to save the citizens several
blocks walk In going over the
tracks, the commission ordered the
crossing constructed. The railroad
appealed to the district court and
then again to the supreme court. No
decision has yet been handed down.

station next on the east, is ten miles
away. The town contains a grain ele
vator, a lumber yard and three stores.
The complainants state that they
shipped thirty cars grain out of the
village since the first of the year,
twenty cars of hogs, and two cars of
cattle, and that if they had the proper
shipping facilities they would be en
abled lo buy much more.
The most serious complaint Is made
on the passenger service. The com
plaint states that the trains are fre
quently late, and that the passengers
are forced to wait for them in the
open, and without any sort of protec
tion from the weather. It Is stated
that as high as twenty-six people have
been thus forced to wait, when the
thermometer stood at 8 degrees above

Manifestations that Left Not a Single

Beverly. Mass. For a full minute
Thursday afternoon President Taft
and Colonel Roosevelt stood on the
broad veranda of the Evans cottage
with hands upon each other's shoul
ders while delight shows in every line
of the smile-enwrapped counten
ances. "Mr. President." It was Roosevelt
who spoke, and there was earnest
warmth in his salutation.
They patted each other affectionate

way that left not a single lingering

feelings. They seemed utterly obvious

The two friends, meeting after six
teen months' separation, with all the
warmth that used to characterize their
association in Washington, slapped
each other again on arms and shoul
ders. And so it went throughout thn
afternoon. When Colonel Roosevelt
was president and Mr. Taft was sec
retary of war the meetings of the two
men at Washington always were
characterized by the same cordiality
as that of today. While house attaches
who witnessed the greeting this after
noon said it was just like the old
days, there also was a rapid fire of
conversation. The meeting was eve ry
thing that the friends of President
Taft have claimed that it would be
and the persistent prophecies of those
who have insisted all along that a
coolness had developed between the
two men proved to be fallacious.
Colonel Roosevelt was in the spirit
of the renewed association with the
president, when, after two hours and
twenty minutes spent with Mr. Taft
and members of his family, he started
back to Nahant to spend a second
night with Senator Lodge.
As he was leaving the shaded
grounds of the president's cottage the
colonel stopped to speak with several
old newspaper friends from Washing
ton. "I had an exceedingly pleasant time
with the president." he exclaimed.
"There Is nothing particular to say. is
there. Cabot?" turning to Senator
"No. I think not." put In the senator.
"We had a delightful time and that
is all there is to it." the colonel add
ed. "By George, look at those miscre
ants." he exclaimed as several photo
graphers who had climbed on a stone
wall for a vantage point began to click
their cameras with a perfect fusillade
"Does Beverly come up to Oyster
Bay?" someone asked.
"You know I am fond of Oyster
Bay." he replied, "and I don't want to
make any comparisons, but. by George.
Beverly is beautiful. This whole north
shore is perfectly lovely."
With a wave of his Panama hat and
a hearty word of goodbye he was off.
