LINCOLN , Aug. 1. [ Special to TUB Ben. ]
Governor Crounso returned from his Wis
consin trip at noon today and was nt his
desk this uftcrnoon for the first time In ton
flays. As ho had loft the state for the pur
pose of gaining ft brief rcsplta from the ar
duous cores of official duty' ho hud paid but
Ilttlo attention to the details oft ho railroad
question and was therefore not prepared to
express any opinion as to the merits of the
many injunction cases that had boon com
menced during bis absence.
"As I look nt the matter , " remarked the
Rovorn6r to a reporter for TUB BEB this
nftornoon , "tho law goes into effect today.
It docs not require any ofllcial proclamation
from the governor. It Is as much
of n law today as if an es
pecial proclamation was Issued to
nnnounco the fact to the public. Whllo I
Imvo not Informed myself ns yet as to
the merits of the Injunctions brought during
my abicncn from the state , I am tree to express -
press the opinion that thu result will be that
the law , although really in effect , in neces
sarily suspended until the questions involved
Ore finally determined by the courts. If ttio
legislature should pass n law making n radi
cal amendment in the taxation laws it would
bu necessarily suspended If nny Interested
parties should take out an Injunction from n
tiropcr court restraining the State Board of
I&limllgailon , the county commissioners or
other officials vested with the authority to
enforce it * provisions. The maximum rate
law , I take It , would bo similarly affected. "

elusive of these of DCS Molnos. The state
ment Is very encouraging , and shows that
the banks of the Hawkeye state arc In n

8orvo is 20.03 per cent , which Is nbovo the
average and moro than the law requires.
The total resources are : Loans and dis

Is 23.85 per cent , wh'lch Is over 2 per cent

of the Dos Molnos national banks are : Loans

"You may say that unless congress passes

under a year from this tlmo" was the stato-
mcnt made at the .Postofllco department to

no money for free delivery "extensions or

lute waste of time for the postmasters or
citizens of Nebraska to apply for them.
There will bo a largo dolicicnoy and the
prospects for enlarged appropriations at the
hands of the approaching congress are not
good ; besides the regular noatollico appro
priation bill which will bo passed about

of nn order of the secretary b'usod on the
ruling filed by the writer , which holds
that n limn who is nblo to earn support
by manual labor has no right to n pen

The order of Commissioner Rautn fix

The writer tells how the "erroneous
order" of. Commissioner Raiim came to

sistant Secretary of the Interior Uussoy.
This order of Commissioner Raum was
approved November 15 , 181)0. ) Its error
was not exposed untll July 7 , 1893 , after
321o02 , claims had been adjudicated In
pursimnco thereof.
"Tho government , " says the latter ,
"In equal justice to these soldiers whoso

when the department pointed out the
error of the bureau , demands there
should not bo ono instance of a law

ether for the remainder whoso claims
are unadjudlcftted ; This administration
would not bo it party to perpetuating it
monstrous wrong to the nation and that
class of the ponsionor.i under the act of
1890 , a number of whoso claims are un-
cxnmined. "
"A board of revision has boon estab

the letter , "for the purpose of reviewing
tHe former adjudication under the act of
1890. Tlio members or this board nro
not all democrats. The chief is a re

These occur to mo as I write ; how many
others are of tlio same political faith I
do not know , but no honest pensioner
need bo alarmed by their activity , as
they are instructed to carry out the law
as construed by both administrations
and nothing moro.
"Tho present practice relative to sus
pensions is not now , , but strictly in line
with that hitherto prevailing. Suspen
sions are under section 2 of tho-act of
Juno 27 , and a'ro not general
under all pension laws. No ro-oxnmina-
tion has been ordered of tho70,000claims ,
of widows , minors and , , dependent rela
tives pensioned undoc.tho samoact.nor of
the 021,000 , claims llo\vcd under prior
laws for disabilities.'cdntraotcd in the
service , and in tlib lino'of duty , and In
the case of the widows , minors and dependent -
pendent relatives , not such pensioners ,
no re-examination whatever is for a mo
ment contemplated. " * ' * *
'In conclusion I might add that this
administration is liOUlibstilo to the sol
dier who fought for the union. Wo nro
at present engaged in correcting "abuses.
Wo are pledged to muko tlio pension roll
a roll of honor , andwp wil | Continue our
work fearlessly until'tho people who de
manded this reform' shall call a halt. "

SALT LAKE , Aug. 1. [ Special Selegram to
TUB Bp.u. ] Still fiirthor and moro sweeping
railroad rotredchments were put In force
hero today. The Union Paclflo foundry ,
which has boon in continuous operation in
this city since 1871 , closed its doors , every
man employed being laid off. All iron anil
steel work for the mountain division will
hereafter bo done in Omaha. Next Sunday
the Union Pacific will discontinue passenger
trains No. 7 and 8 west of hero at Ello or be
tween tjiat point and Portland. This cuts
down n mileage oxpcnsoof H ! > 1 miles , and is
the biggest retrenchment made In western
railroad service slncn the commencement of
the present llnancial stringency.
The Saot Lake City Street Hallway com
pany last evening laid on * fifty inon and four
cars.Tho pay roll of the entire Hlo Grande
Western system , inicials included , was cut
today from 10 to 20 per cent and a number of
ofllcors' assistants in this
city were dis
charged. The company today Issued notice
of cancolatlon of Its wogo scale agreement
with the locomotive engineers and llremon.
not strange that some people do
wrong through ignorance , others from
a failure to investigate as to the right or
wrong of a matter. But it is strange ,
that individuals and firms , who are fully
aware of the rights of others , will per
sist in perpetrating frauds upon them.
High-toned , wealthy manufrcturlng
firms will offer and fioll to retail mer
chants , articles which they know to bo
infringements on the rights of proprie
tors , and imitations of well known poods.
Wo want to sound a note of warning to
the retailers to beware of such imita
tions audllmulatlonsof "CAUTKH'S Lrr-
TLK LlYEB PILLS. " When they are of
fered to you , refuse thorn ; you do not
want to do wrong , and you don't want to
lay yourself liable to a lawsuit Bon
Franklin said "Honesty is the best poli
