LINCOLN , Sept. 5. ( Special. ) Auditor
Cornell still refuses to Issue a warrant on
the salary claim of Deput ) Food Commis
sioner HIbbard. When Mr. Hlbbard wai ap
pointed by Governor Poyntcr the auditor an-
uounccd that he would not allow cla'nis '
made against the appropriation for the ex
penses of the food department and It now
nppiars as though he means' to Keep his
word , notwithstanding the fact that he ad
mitted last week that the appropriation
legal and that the claim of Mr. Hlbbard
would be paid. It was announced In Xhe
auditor's olllco last week that the claim
of the deputy commissioner had been signed
nnd that the wariant would be Issued the
following da > When Mr. Hlbbard applltd
for thu warrant ho was Informed that th < j
auditor was still In doubt as to the consti
tutionality of the appropriation for the food
department and that he would have to wait
lor his salary until the attorney general
gave an opinion on the subject.
Auditor Cornell has since given the mat
ter no consideration nnd has not even asked
the attorney general for an opinion regardIng -
Ing the food commission law. This uftsr-
iioon Governor Po > ntcr took the matter up
and It Is stated that If the claim Is not
llnally allowed tomorrow mandamus pro
ceedings will be commenced at once.
Auditor Cornell's first contention re-
Carding the constitutionality of the appro
priation was that It was not siieclllc , boldIng -
Ing that the legislature could not provide
for an expenditure of state money beyond
the present blennlum. The pure food law
appropriates annually for an Indefinite pe
riod Deputy Attorney General Oldham has
Leld in an oslnlon In another case that un
npproprlatlon to bn legal must meet three
requirements. Flist. that It musbe for a
Hpcclflc amount or have a iloilnltc limit ,
iccond , that It must be from A specified fund ,
nnd , third , that It must bo for a legitimate
nnd beneficial purpose It Is admitted thru
the pure food appropriation meets all these
requirements , but the auditor has raised
another objection , bated upon hlawn con
struction of an atiiclo In the constitution ,
uhlch movldes that an tct of the leslsla-
ture authorizing or directing the cxptndl
turo of state money for olficers1 salaries
rhall contain no provisions other than thcso
which relate directly to the appropriation.
Is provided for
The pure * food appropriatbn
In the law creating the < ie'v department and
It Is for this reason that the auditor ic-
fuscs , so ho asserts , to allow the claim of
the deputy commissioner In an opinion
rendered by Judge Max-veil In a laso where
this point was raised the section Is construed
BJ as to refer only to appropilatlons for the
Balarles of olllclals pro-ld-xl for by the
conbtltutlon. As the deputy food comrofs-
filoncr is appointive and not elective. It is
the general opinion that the objectim of
the auditor does not fit the case.
Attorney General Smyth today assured
Jlr. Hlbbard that so far as he kncv. there
naa no reason why his ililm should not bo
allowed. About the only cxnlanatlon cd-
vanced is that the auditor slmoly deplres
to take advantage of an opportunity to op
pose the governor and to cause him , If pos-
Blble , to carry the case Into the courts.

The last legislature , In making the ap
propriation for the support of the Nebraska
Rational" Guard , made no provision for the
transportation of the troops to and from the
annual encampment. It Is thought that
this was an overblght , for provision was
made for subsistence and pay for officers
and rr" > n while in camp. Tbo total appropri
ation tor the National Guard Is $23.853 52.
Of this amount $5.467 Is allowed for armory
rent. Including troop , battery , band and
company headquarters ; $11.710 for salary of
men and officers while In camp , and $2,400
for subsistence. On one or two
occasions In previous years the railroads
have presented their claims to the legisla
ture for reimbursement , and as they cannot -
not bo paid this year from any other fund
they will probably bo compelled to wait
until the next session for the allowance of
their claims.
Orders were Issued to each company com
mander today for the transportation re
quired and there is but little doubt that
they will bo honored by the railroads. Ac
cording to the provisions of the National
Guard appropriation It would seem that It
ivns not the Intention of the legislature to
have two encampments. Adjutant General
Barry Is of the opinion that the appropria
tion Is large enough for two regiments of
militia and he proposes to organize a First
regiment before the first of next } ear.
Silos A Holcomb has fllod a statement
with the secretary of etato showing the ex
penses of his candidacy for the nomination

railroad faro from Lincoln to Omaha and

above that of 1S9G , which heretofore has
been the record , and there Is much In the
advices received to Justify a prediction that
the crop will approximate 2,500,000,000 bush
The first corn crop of the count ? } to
reach In round numbers 2,000,000 bushels
was that of 1S > 85. Including the ciop now
to bo harvested , only nine crops of 2,000,000
bushels or over have been produced.
Conditions at the time of planting were
not at all favorable. A great deal had to
bo replimtcd , In some cases several times ,
and the crop during the early growing
period was unusually uneven The late
spring and earl } summer weather was ,
however , of the forcing kind , with abundant
moisture , and the crop made up lor the
early delay. It then came to bo generally
recognized that , barring accident * , the
greatest crop on record would be produced.

"I am very grateful to you for your

medicines and advice are worth moro
to -woman than all the doctors in the
world. For years I had female troubles
I and did nothing for them. Of course
I became no better and finally broke
down entirely. My troubles began
with inflammation and hemorrhages
from the kidneys , then inflammation ,
congestion and falling of the womb
and inflammation of ovaries.
" I underwent local treatment every
day for some time ; then after nearly
two months the doctor gave me permis
sion to go back to work , I went back ,
but in less than a week was com
pelled to give up and go to bed. On
breaking down the second time , I de
cided to let doctors and their medicine
alone and try your remedies. Keforo
