Its efficiency last night by ringing for two

The object of the Nebraska Prison as
sociation Is to remler such aid as cn be
rr-mlered In the matter of enforcing the
criminal laws of the stste, exerting a bene
ficent advisory Influence over the manage
ment of all prisons and reform schools In
the state ana of persons confined therein,
as well ss those dlschsrged therefrom.
There Is no disposition to criticise the
methods adopted by those In charge of our
prisons snd reform schools. In most ln
stsnces they sre seeking to discharge the
duties Imposed upon them to the best of
their sblllty. -This, however, does not dis
pose of the matter In hand.
Many of our Jails are Improperly, not
to say Indecently, kept. Especially In tha
larger cities snd more populous counties
Is i his true. Men and Women, of the most
dobssrd, degrsded and debauched clsssea
sre often confined In the same apartments,
and with them, less confirmed criminals
and often boys arid girls, mere children,
who there receive their first lessons In
the deeper shsdes of crime and are made

less child, whose parents may have been
snatched away by death, and who. with
out moral restraint, may have taken tha
first step In the downward path.
The same treatment Is necessarily given
to the convicts In our state penitentiary.
The flrst lessons In safe-blowing, train
robbery and murder are often taught in
the privacy of the cell at the dead hour
But these, though bad enough, sre per
haps not the worst of prison abuses. From
the lowest to the highest of our places of
confinement of prisoners, there Is the dally
exodus of those who have "done time. '
Those leaving our reform schools and Jails
are often penniless and without friends.
Many of those leaving the penitentiary
tire without friends and often from 2"0 to
1.000 miles from home, with the sum of
IS In pocket. No friend greets them out-
sine tne prison wans. iNeuner nas iunas
sufficient to psy psssage to hore or
friends. All resolutions of amendment find
here their first staggering blow. Friendless,

In another state, a feeling of helpless
ness and shame renders the Individual
powerless to csrry out the good resolves
previously formed. In this frsme of mind.
If accosted by a Hardened criminal under
the guise of friendship, the backward road
to final outlawry and destruction la easy
and the descent rapid.
Purpose of Association.
The purpose of ' the Nebraska prison
association la to counteract tha evils above
named, as well as many others which can
not be here noticed. To those who desire
to return to home or frlenda and lead an
upright life, the aanoclatlon dealrea to lend
a helping hand. A friend and not an enemy
will meet them at the threshold of the
prison. Assistance to make the homeward
trip will be' furnished. The youths who are
given their liberty will be furnished with
homes if they can be had. To those who
desire employment the necessary oppor
tunity will be furnished. Elevating em
ployment will sought for. them. The ad
vantages of correct living and correct do
In will be offered them. To make of them
good citizens and not outlaws, will be
the efforts or tne association.
A "committee on prison visitation" Is
provided, whose duties are to visit and In
spect prison treatment and discipline. This
committee will make annual reports ga
the association, which will be published.
It Is tha purpose to secure legislative
recognition or the association, in order
that every step taken may be In strict
compliance with law. The officers, except
the superintendent, will be without, com
pensation nor other reward. The aole object
la to aid men, women and children to be
come good law abiding and law loving
Your help In thla great undertaking Is
earnestly solicited. Will you give It? Wo

P.allroad Fights Taxation.
Tha county of Adams Is prosecuting an
appeal to the supreme court from a declsltyi
of the district court of that county holding
that the elevators of ,the Kansas City &
Vimaha railway at Paulina and LeRoy are
a part of the personal property of tha rail
way company, "necessary for tha success
ful operation of such road.
Tha county Insists that tha railroad com
pany Is seeking to evade taxation by claim
ing that thla property was listed by It to
tha State Board of Equalisation and by It
Included In Its aasessment of railroad prop
erty for purposes of taxation.
Tha railroad company Insists that to
assess these elevators by tha county would
be double taxation. They Insist that tha
elevatora were built upon atona piers and
became a part of the right-of-way, being
erected thereon. They aay that whatever
la affixed to tha soil becomes In contempla
tion of law a part of It The elevatora have
been leased to man who are engaged in tha
shipping of grain over Its road. It la
claimed by the company that they are need
ful and necessary as tha villages ware mora
hamleta In which there are no private ele
vatora controlled by private capitalists and
held out for public use and convenience,
and the very fact that there are none cast
upon the company tha greater duty of
building and maintaining them. Tha com
pany'a brief concludes:
Tha suggestion that tlia right-of-way of
me mnwajr cumnnr is noiy ground," and
that persona will seek exemption by seek
ing the protection thereof is without merit.
Railway companies will. In time, come to
supply parties making applications for sites
to me raciimes, out tnat when they do seek
these privileges It Is always under a lease
In which they are careful to retain th.ie
right to remove the buildings.

The alleged answer In the Independent

goes to show the desperate straits the
fuslonists are in In their efforts to make an
The truth of the matter Is that the fuslon

The O'Neill postmaster simply required
the publisher of the Independent to comply

copies were duly mailed. The special edi

postmaster told the publisher of the Inde

Presbyterian Synod I'nable to Divide
for or Against tbe
TORK, Neb., Oct. lS.-(Speclal.)-The
Presbyterian synod of Nebraska enjoyed
a profitable session yesterday and this
morning. A matter of Intense Interest was
brought before the synod by Rev. John
Dixon, D. D., of the Home Mission board
of New Tork City, namely: The question
of whether the office of pastor-at-large, or
synodlcal superintendent of home missions,
should be eliminated from our work. The
board feels that the pastor-at-large Is su
perfluous. The synod ' of Nebraska more
than any other synod ' of the church em
ploys that official. A vote of the synod
showed almost an equal division on the
desirability of sustaining these two offices.
Dr. Thomaa L. Sexton, who for eighteen
years has been synodlcal superintendent,
waa re-elected for the ensuing year, and
his earnestness and fidelity 'to the church
Rev. David O. Kerry D. D., president of
the Bellevue college, and ' Rev. E. Van
Dyke Wright, D". D., president of Hastings
college, gave interesting talks on education
and encouraging reports from these two
Institutions. A noticeable coincidence was
that exactly the same number of students,
176, were reported as attending each school,
although the reports showed eighty-two
students la the college and academic de
partments In Hastings and 164 In the same
department In- Bellevue.
At the popular evening meeting Dr. T.
V. Moore of Omaha and Rev. Fred Walton,
D. D., presented the evangelistic phase ot
the church work.
The aynod greatly appreciates tha
splendid hospitality of the pastor and peo
ple of, York. Their well known liberality
was not lagging upon this occasion.
A special meeting from October 15 to 2S Is
to be held in the Presbyterian church Im
mediately upon the close of the synod.
Uvangeltst Chester Birch, who haa w 'ked
so successfully last month In Pones and
Wayne, Neb., will be in charge.

maneuvers demonstrated that the Fort
Riley reservation was too small for this
event, so this year tho government sdopted
