LINCOLN , July 19. ( Special. ) Following
the election ot the present municipal admin
istration In Lincoln a certain district In the
western portion of the city was set apart as a
so-called "reservation , " wherein the social
evil was to be concentrated and confined by
the authorities. Now nearly every preacher
In the city has delivered a blast from the
juilplt against the attendant disorder which
spreads-nil over the city , the storm center
being , however , on the "reservation. " But
all the ministers In the state cannot do as
ihuch toward depriving the "reservation" of
Us attractions as it 1s doing Itself. It Is fast
becoming known as a place to avoid. Rob
beries are of nightly occurrence , and the
victims fall to prosecute for fear of exposure.
So flagrant are these nightly outrages within
the limits of the little Sodom that fears have
been expressed by parties closely Identified
with the administration that the "business"
of the "reservation" will be destroyed and
ultimately wiped out by the boldness and ra
pacity of the very denizens who look to the
great public for custom. These "holdups"
have averaged from $5 to $500 within the
past month. One of the earlier victims ap
pears to have been a councilman. Since his
misfortune the victims have bsen many and
the "reservation" Is fast acquiring a reputa
tion only equalled by Hell's , Half Acre In
Chicago and Cherry Hill , New York.
SIDE LIGHTS OK DORGAN'S DEAL.
Ono of the sldo lights of the great Dorgan
penitentiary plant muddle Is the case of the
Western Manufacturing company new pending
in the district court of Lancaster county.
This concern now avers in an answer flled
that there Is no need of a receiver to wind
up its affairs. The company op3rates several
of the plants at the penitentiary. Several
weeks slnco It gave a number ot chattel mort
gages to various parties and closed down.
The Lincoln Savings bank later began action ,
alleging fraud In the giving of these mort
gages and asking for a receiver to look after
the Interests of all creditors , of whom It
w s one. For a first defense the company
says that the bank Is nothing but a contract
creditor of Welch , and that the only suit
that can be maintained Is one against him
nnd that agiltist the company the bank can
have no tight. It further urges that the
atock claimed by the bank was assigned to II
by Welch as security for the debt he o e < l
the bank and has never been transferred on
the books ot the company. The charges of
fraud are categorically denied by the compiny
'The manager of the company , Welch
who was recently examined by the attorneys
in the cite , was askfd to produce the books
of the company. He said this was Impossible
as they were locked up In the safe at the
company's olllce at the penitentiary , and no
ono had the combination but the bookkeeper
who was out of the city and his address un
known. Evidently the bink would like a peep
at the books , which the company seems
equally desirous of preventing.
At last the hearing on the application tea
a receiver for the Lincoln Call has bean
definitely set -for next Wednesday. Judg
Holmes will listen then to arguments and

LINCOLN , July 19. ( Special. ) Hon.
Richard H. Jenness , editor ot the Atkinson
Graphic and member of the famous Douglas
county delegation In the last legislature , Is
up to Ills eyes In trouble , and is going to ap
peal to the supreme court to help him out
and establish him firmly In the rights for
which he fought In the legislature.
Mr. Jenness was elected from Douglas
county to the legislature as a labor candidate
on the republican ticket. He was prominent
In local labor circles , and was elected by a
big majority. While in Omaha Mr. Jenness
was employed as a printer , and as the advent
of machines had greatly reduced the chances
of employment for printers , Mr. Jenness had
his eye open for a job. He was In the legis
lature but a short tlmo when the desired job
loomed up , and took on tangible shape. There
was a printing outfit at Atkinson that was
looking for an owner , and votes were wanted
In the legislature for the repeal of the valued
policy law and for the state depository law.
At the tlmo Mr. Jenness was chairman of the
house committee on insurance. While these
facts may have had no relation , it Is a fact
that the announcement that Mr. Jenness
would go to Atkinson Immediately after the
adjournment of the legislature was almost
simultaneous with his decided stand In favor
of the repeal of the laws named , and of
other measures In which the combine was
To carry out the plan further , Mr. Jenness
introduced a bill in tbo house , which was
passed , and goes into fffcct August 1. The
bill provides that a county may bo divided ,
and new counties formed on a petition of a
majority Instead of thrfcrfiftha of the legal
voters. Mr. Jenness , , flevpted 'much of his
tlmo to secure the passage of the bill. For
Its adoption he tlei up with the other mem
bers of the Douglas -delegation on the A. P.
A. police bill , to wlilch'JiVs was originally op
posed , and made a number of combines that
resulted in the passageof the bill. His plan
was to divide Holt .county . Into four equal
parts' , to bo called Adatr * Fountain , Elkhorn
and Holt counties , leaving O'Neill the county
seat ot Holt county and tnaklng Atkinson the
county seat of Adalr. ' ; wlj.h Mr. Jcnnosj and
his Graphic doing bfipu > ess on the ground
floor. Ewlng was to bq the county seat ol
Elkhorn , and no slto decided upon for the
capital of Fountain couniy.
Things were coming' Mr. Jenness1 way In
carriages , but therc a a disastrous liltcli
In the proceedings wboa.tho matter came be
fore the county board .at Holt county. Mr ,
Jenness and his followers presented a plan
asking that the proposition to divide the
county be submitted on the lines already
described. But the commissioners did not
see it that way and adopted a plan of tlteli
own. The board submitted a proposltlor
to divide the county Into three parts , to lx
known is Holt. Elkhorn and Holcomb conn
ties. And where did Mr. Jenness land In thi
division ? The east line of Holcomb county
proposed , passes just west of At
kinson , and leaves Mr. Jennesa am
Atkinson on almost the boundary llni
of Holt county. In1 the. same county with thi
deadly rival , O'Neill , the county seat. Enlnt
Is directly on the dividing line between Hoi
and Elkhorn counties and the entire proposl
tlon is calculated to drive the Iron into tut
soul ot Mr. Jenness , In the flght over thi
division of the county members ot the count ]
board came to blows and a general riot wai
narrowly averted. '

GUSSIirjlOAI THE STATE IIOUSK
Plans for the Addition to the Solilleri1
LINCOLN , July 19. ( Special. ) The Board
of Public Lands and Buildings today accepted
ho plans and specifications of Architect G.
E. McDonald for the new addition to the Sol
diers' and Sailors' home at Grand Island.
The amount appropriated by the legislature
for the purpose was $12,000 , which was se
cured by the persuasive eloquence of Repre
sentative Harrison of Hall county. This ef-
ort was made Immediately following the ap-
iroprlatlon to purchase the Mliford sanl-
arlum for an extra soldiers' home at Mliford.
and it has quite generally been supposed that
the Grand Island appropriation was a part
of the Mliford deal. Architect McDonald will
receive D per cent of the $12.000 for his plans.
The board will now proceed to advertise for
bids for the erection of the building , according
to the plans today adopted.
A profile of the survey through two coun-
les of the Iowa , Lake Superior & Gulf rail
way was received today at the office of Oil
Inspector Kclmlsten , who la one of the di
rectors of the road. The same profile , or
rather n duplicate of the same , was filed with
the county clerk of Gage county. The line
surveyed runs through Gage and Lancaster
counties , beginning at the southeast corner
of Gage , nnd extending , so far , to Bennett.
It takes In the towns of Panama , Adams ,
Virginia and Liberty. At no point does the
survey deviate more than three miles from
an nlr line. The work has been prosecuted
under direction of A. G. Allan , chief engineer
of the company.
