TOIES WARDS OF THE STATE
Argument Made by Horni Brown in Non
pareil Laundry Case.
SUPPORTS THE flMALE LABOR LAW
Attorney Hold Stale Sheald Protect
Women from Overtoils rhyel
ral t'aparlty for Welfare
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Aprlt 13. (Special.) In an
argument before the supreme ourt In sup
port of the female labor law the State de-f
partraent of Justice take the position that
women are ward of the state and for the
future welfare of society, should be pre
vented by law from overtaxing their phys
ical capacity. The constitutionality of the
act Is questioned In the case of the state
agalnat, the Nonpareil Steam laundry, ap
pealed from Douglas county. The brief Is
by Norrls Brown, who says:
Conceding for the sake of argument, but
not admitting Its truth, that a statute Is
Invalid which undertaken to limit the hours
of labcr for men. It does not follow that
the act In our at Inn, which affects women,
la likewise unconstitutional. Women have
no participation In the affairs of govern
ment, except to bear their share of Its
burdens and all of Its future defenders.
They have no voice In determining; Its
policies or expending its revenue. They
are graciously permitted, however, to pay
their portion of the public taxes. In a
sense, they are wards of the state. While
tindor the law of Nebraska they have the
liberty and are competent to make con
tracts, yet the legislature, recognising their
physical Incapacity to labor unreasonably,
wlaely limited their hours of toil to sixty
hours per week. Woman, however strong
and robust she may be, is by nature and
constitution man s unequal In the field of
labor. The law was enacted for her benefit
as well as In the Interest of labor gen
erally. The general health of her kind find
through her the general health of society,
and through It the general welfare of th
state, demands such a law, arid justifies
its enactment by the legislature.
' Bareaa Wlthoot Statistics.
In ano."ier case Attorney General Prout
suggests to the court that a bureau of in
dustrial statistics, without statistics or
means of providing them, would be a
strange Institution, The plea Is made In
the ease instituted by Deputy Labor Com
missioner Watson to test the validity of
the law which requires county assessors to
gather Information for the State Bureau of
Labor and Industrial Statistics. Hearing
In the action will be before the suoreni
court next Tuesday. The law haa been
attacked on the grounds that It Is uncon
stitutional and because It provides no
compensation for the assessor performing
It la aaserted by the state's attornevs
that the collecting of statistics waa ona
of the chief concerns of the legislature
In enacting the law. The method provided
by the original act was not effective and
In 1S87 the legislature by amendment pro
vided a different method. It Is contended
that In the title to the amendatory act
Its was unnecessary to declare a purpose
to Impose additional dutlea upon assessors
since the title of the original bill waa
sufficient to cover the subject.
Ato the constitutionality of the act It
While there Is no merit. In our Judgment.
In the contention that the law la Invalid
because no compensation Is provided for
the assessors, the truth Is. under the gen
eral revenue act, full compensation Is pro
vided for the performance of all duties
resting upon the assessors. This act gives
to the assessor a per diem for every day
engaged In performing his official duties.
To collect these statistics s one of his offi
cial duties, and, whatever time he devotes
to the discharge of this duty he can recover
from the. county his pay. No valid objec
tion to the amendment of 1S87 has been sug
gested and the law ahould be enforced.

papers were secured from the governor of

NEW TORK. April IS. The New Yorker
who wanted a drink of Intoxicating liquor
today discovered that the enforcement of
the excise law, through the combined ef
forts of the uniformed police and tha mem
bers of the State Liquor Dealers' asso
ciation, had assumed several new aspects.
The first waa that while It waa much
harder than heretofore to get a drink In
a aaloon holdin merely a liquor tag
certificate, It was much easier to obtain
one In a Ralnea law hotel.
The buyer also found that while last
Sunday be was served either with a plats
of cheese of crackers with his drink, or
wss given a sandwich to eat or not as bs
choae, today be could ont buy a drink
without also ' buying a sandwich.
Saloon men who were seen during the
dsy seemed to think that the police ac
tivity had much to do wtth the saloons
being kept closed tightly, for the most
psrt, snd srgued that the hotel men were
doing more business because they had been

In the "Tenderloin" dlatrlct there were
very few places without a hotel license

The district, It was said, was closed tighter
than had been known in years. The plan
ot selling in rooms overhead the saloon
and similar ruses wers done away with,
seemingly for the reason that the dealers
thought ths trouble too greet and the
compensation too small.
The police of this district were very
active as well, and there was but a small
attempt to do business. tTp to 7 o'clock In
the evening there bad not been an arrest

FOURTEEN HITS TO A NIGGARDLY PAIR
Omaha Playera Pat tp Saperh ttame
from Start to Finish aad Haad
llavekeyes a Goose
Eleven to nothing, and dulcet revenge
ts Omaha's. Before an hysterical swarm
of 2,500 people at Vinton Street park yes
terday all the acerbity ot the paradoxical
defeat which "Pa'a Pete" suffered on Sat
urday at the hands of the Des Moines
base ball team waa washed away In the flood
of as sweeping a vlctoty as the most
frantic of fans could wish. Not a feature
of the game but what evidence the super
iority of the Gate City men, not a detail tn
which they did not excel, and the entire
contest was one grand procession of ever
augmenting triumph, paralleled by an ova
tion which Increased Just as constantly.
No blood of a baffler coursed through thevi
distended veins of Pitcher Wllktns yes
terday; no streak of cunning craft lurked
In the sinews of his whip arm to guide
hlra through the tortuous psssages of nine
Innings of twirling to a sate victory. In
short, WUklns seemed to bave nothing but
material for two base hlta up hla aleeva for
that occasion, to which be added wild pitches
snd bases on balls galore, and the general
opinion of the spectators Is that be had
better go back to Red Oak.
Any Other Old Rose.
Had O'Leary put a clasa pitcher In the
box the defeat might not have been so
overwhelming, but even t that Omaha
would have won by a fat score, for the
boys had their batting garb on for fair.
Again, a Cunningham In the middle of tha
diamond would not have availed the Dee
Moines Da liters much, for our own slab
artists were Invincible. For five Innlncs
Brown threw balls that sent tha crowd
Into an ecstasy. One scratch hit was all
off him, and the way he teased out the
pop-up files waa a Joy forever. "It can't be
beat," was the verdict of the people, and
when Graham came on In the elxth there
was a general feeling of pity for a man
who waa compelled to go In behind such a
pace as Brown had set.
But Oscar never smiled nor sighed. Three
minutes warming np with Jack Hayes, and
ths new battery took Its place. Then began
aa fine an exhibition of treacherous tossing
aa Imagination can picture. Even Brown's
work csme near paling before this new
light. Again one little hit, with seven
strike outs and not a single base on balls.
To a bunch of fans who had fostered
doubts because of his previous uncertainty
Graham proved out then and there.
. Short Trips for Iowaas.
So not a Hawkeye got past first base, and
only two of them even saw that coveted
haven. Little more can be said. The garao
waa practically errorless, Des Moines mak
ing the only mistake chronicled. The rest
can be only praise for the Omahans. TP
Stone probably belongs the Individual day's
palm, for ha led the hitting with a triple
and two doubles, while his rscs horse
catch of a swift foul against the bleacher
fender In right field, waa easily the fielding
hit of the day.
Graham hit a twobagger bis first time
up, snd when he followed this with thst su
perior piece of pitching the crowd voted him
a raise of salary on the spot. Burg, Calhoun,
Dolan and .Stewart, mere all - there with
two bits. fach,. and , Jack r Hayes , bandied
Graham like a veteran. , ,
' The occasion wss one of general congratu
lation. An air ot Jubilant satisfaction Im
pregnated the atanda, and one could Just
feel how happy everyone felt about that
Omaha team. Ths local devoteea are mors
than convinced Omaha has a great ball
team. All they are waiting for now la to
see the season begin.
