The Poworn Tbnt
The saloon men of Council Ulna's continue
o flourish and grow fat financially , so fur as
.ho mayor anil city marshal arc concerned.
LJoth of thcso oftlclals have the power to
close them up , if BO disposed , but no attempt
.s mndo to do so by either of them. They
were both elected by the liquor element , and
are decidedly averse to doing anything ob-
jcctlotmblo to this faction. Neither ono of
; hcm cares to shoulder the blame and each
trios to shift the responsibility upon the
The mayor admits that ho can clo o the
saloons If t > o disposed , and has on several oc
casions promised to do so If thu liquor dealers
failed to pay monthly lines , and now the
mayor Is placed In a decidedly ticklish posi
tion. Ho must cither "go back on" his con
stituents , by closing their saloons , or ho must
iwek down from his position as gracefully as
possible , and acknowledge that he Is a puppet
in the hands of the saloon keopeis , who
carry too many guns for him nnd can twist
him around their fingers as they plca e.
When the mayor iimdu his demands upon
the saloon men he sincerely hoped and 111 inly
bclloved that they would roino to time with
out nny dlfllculty. Ho did not anticipate fern
n moment that ho would bo called upon to
carry out bis threat. What his future policy
will bo is iihcmly apparent. Ho is beginning
to weaken , nnd the result will bo a complete
victory for the saloon keepers. Ho Midly
laments that "tho papers have not stood by
him , " ns though hu really expected that his
course of intended licensing the breaking of
thu state l.iw would bo upheld.
None of the city oflleials uphold the mayor
In his outlined course. The city solicitor be
lieves tllat this plnii of levying or accepting
monthly contribution of hush money con
flicts directly with the statutes , and is noth
ing more nor less than "condoning a public
ofTcnse , " nnd would bring serious charges to
the mayor's door. The executive's position
Is Indeed unenviable. It is Impossible for
him to stand still , nnd ho is afraid to jump
cither diicction , for fear of "getting his foot
In it. " His actions are awaited with in
The city mmshnl Is in hardly less pleasing
attitude. Among the duties prescribed for
him is that of enforcing all the laws , and bo
Is liable for lines lor neglect. Ho IB not ex
pected to wait for any orders from the
mayor. The gambling houses running open ,
saloons thriving anil houses of prostitution
numerous , with no prosecution except by
private parties looks rather bad for both
executive olllcers. It is not to bo wondered
at that each sucks to throw the responsibility
upon the other.

near this city , and \\lio resides nt 1014 Fifth

about 10 o'clock by four men , near the lum
ber yard on Third avenue , between Thir
teenth and Fourteenth streets. Ho MIW the
men approaching him , but as they were
laughing and talking ho suspected nothing
As they catno up ono of the fellows seized
him while another struck at him from behind -
hind with a long bladcd dirk. The intended
victim warded oft the blow with his arm , but
the knife cut through the rim of his hat and
ploughed its way down through hia coat , cut
ting a slit about a foot long through that gar
ment , but not reaching his skin. At the
snino instant Sclnooder received n terrific
blow on the back of his neck , knocking him
hcnselcss. Ills pockets were then rifled of
$ U hi cash. Ho had been collecting during
the day , and thinks that his assailants know
that ho had money. As it was n.uito dark

fect description of his would-bo assassin.

Things \\cro very lively around Torn Skin
ner's plnco last Monday. Armed with the
regulation search warrant Henry Do Long
attempted to examine n little shanty In
which liquor was supposed to be , when Mrs.
Sk'inncr aimed herself with n hatchet , club ,

great shape. This is the story Do Long
ells. Ho also suys the premises were
searched in the most approved style and the
presence of a few bottles of B. B. testify to
the searching. It was attempted to work up
a little sympathy for the defendants yester
day by saying Do Long had no warrant.

I take this occasion to compliment you
upon the very cfllciont manner In which you
have caused the signs upon , thcso houses to
bo taken In. Thcso people should bo madu to
feel that they are simply tolerated , as they
have no legal existence. I do not wish to bo
understood as condoning a crime ; . As an ex
ecutive I merely desire to deal with this dini-
cult question in a manner the most conducive
to the public good.

A Gallant Wooer , but n Hruto of n. Hub-
Nclllo Wallace has sued Nellie E. Uena-
hon and her husband , Michael Henahcn , for

given her by the first named defendant , and
for 110 for room and board for two weeks ,
and 110 In money loaned her to allow Mrs.
Henahcn to leave town.
The case grows out of a uiardago and di
vorce proceeding which was aired during

Mrs. Ilcnahen had purchased a lot , and
was paying for It in small payments. There

soon ns eho had her lot paid for.
At this Michael mndo many promises to
pay tbo debt if she would marry him nt once
nnd she consented. They were umrried. but
the debt was not assumed nnd paid. Mrs.
Kcnnhcn nppllcd to her friend , Mrs. Wallace ,
for the lonn of $ JOO and paid off the debt.
Before this debt was repaid the defendants
had a light and Mrs. Uenahen applied for n
divorce. The cnso cnmo up the ! ! 0th of last
July. She was advised to return to her
homo nt Elkhorn station and live with her
She returned , hut he refused to allow her
to enter the house , and drove her off the
farm at the end of n pitchfork. She then re
turned to Mrs. Wallace's to live , and thus In

The following may explain in part , the
methods certain newspapers are using to in
crease ( ( ) their circulations-
O vin t , Kent. : i--To the Editor of the Bun :
You will confer a favor to me by answering
through thu columns of the Bu : as soon ns
possible the following question !
If any daily Journal should bo sent by
mail orlcft hy u carrier tluvo tlmos in sue
cession to any citwn who didn't subscribe
for it , but kept and read the same while It
was sent to him , does the law compel him to
pay for it , if ho is not willing , Just because it
wus sent three times to him , nnd kept and
read by him. An early answer to this
through Tin , Brr. will bo n favor to several
of your subscribers. Cin/iv
In ansiur to ttio above question It would
seem almost unnecessary to say that no ( al
leged ) newspaper can bo forced upon any
one. Should ho subscribe for it the paper
may bo delivered to him until ho pays all ar-
10 irs , and the law compels him to pay for It
under such circumstances.
