LINCOLN, Nov. 15. (Special.) Nebrao
kans have many unsettled problem to
worry about these day. Flrat and fore
moat of theae worries la the fear of over
tl.onn.ooo deficit In the atate'a finance dur
ing? the next two year, should the supreme
court knock out the new revenue law.
Then there la a little coterie of people
who are anxlcun to assist Governor Mickey
name the next commandant of the Grand
Island Soldiers' home. The governor atated
a few day ago that he would In oil prob
ability name the man tomorrow. He may
prolong the agony, however, aeveral days,
a ha went to Grand laland Saturday night,
presumably to attend a campfire, and In
, cldentally to do a little pergonal Investi
gating, and consequently may change hi
mind. Following along with thla cornea a
vacancy In the supreme court communion,
made tV the elevation of Judge Barnes to
tha bench. A number of candidate ate
out for thla place, and It is not believe!
that the man haa yet been decided upon.
More Important than this, at least from
a financial standpoint, I the appointment
of a aiipreme court clerk, and while N. D.
Jackson of Nellgh pretends to think he
haa tha office, ha may be mistaken. At
least there are aome who believe that the
place In atilt oven to the extent that they
are doing aome tall hustling for It.
Sot an Vnmtied Kvll.
In the meantime the worry about the fate
f the revenue law. which. If declared un
constitutional, would reault In a moat de
plorable atate of affairs, would probably
in the long run do mflch toward making
the government of Nebraska a govern
ment of the people for the people instead
f by the people for the corporations. Tho
report sent out by the Associated Pre a
representative to tho effect that Governor
Mickey was to call an extra session of the
larlslature ahould the law be knocked out.
even though the report was unwarranted
by the fact, met with the hearty approval
of a large number of people who have come
to the capital since it publication. A num
ber of the country papers spoke lit approval
of Ihe extra session. Thla because li an
extra session railroads would prohubly not
fare so well as now.
Paid a. prominent republican: ""These at
tacks on the revenue law, should they re
mit In knocking It out, would be a good
thing for tho at a re In the long run and If
It la not declared unconstitutional a dis
cussion of what would happen before the
opinion come down ahould he of great
benefit to, the atate. It should teach the
people If they want their Interests loul
after' and their interest In everything that
affects the Interest of the atate they shout
elect men to the legislature who are not
only capable, but who' will ' refuse to ex
change the Interest of the entire people for
the benefit of a very limited number."
Predict Flae Shooting. .
A Dumber of Lincoln and Omaha sports
men have Just returned from Central City,
.where they have been tha gueats of "Chick"
Berryman, on the Plat l near that place.
They give Berryman credit for being the
best posted river man In that part of the
tats and a born sportsman. Thry reported
excellent shooting and Intend to return
there about Thanksgiving for, a crack at
the geese ; that are expected 'in at lhat
time. Berryman predict the beat season
of ahootlng that Nebraekans have had an
opportunity to enjoy for some time.
Progress of Nebraska.
Nebraska fifty yeara ago, with a popula
tion of less than 1,000, and It western por
tion a great unknown prairie, according to
tha atatlatlca compiled by the Department
of Labor, probably has developed more
than any state In the union. With Its
agricultural progress, of course, every one
Is familiar, but Nebraska la not all a farm,
upon whose cornstalks gold dollars grow.
Nebraska lias a number of towns that are
Juct as progressive as has been Its farms.
Not counting Omaha, Bouth Omaha and
Lincoln, there are lit thla state alxfy-two
towns and cltiea with a population of over
L00, and of these eight : have over. 6,0i)0
people. , These are Beatrice, Fremont,
brand Island, Kearney, Hastings, Nebraaka
City, Plattnmouth and York. These eight
have a total Indebtedness of . tl.S47.292,
which 1 over one-half of the total Indebt
edness Of the entire sixty-two towns.
To get an Idea of the enterprise of these
sixty-two towns. It Is only necessary to
cite that all but three of them have In a'
system of water work. - That these towns
are firm believers In municipal ownership
la proven by the fact that fifty or them
own their own water plants, while only
nine of the towns of this class have pri
vate ownership of water plants. With
lighting plants, however, the ownership
ft Juat tho- reverse, and no reason haa been
assigned for It- Out of the sixty-two cities
forty of them have lighting plants owned
by private' corporations, and thirteen have
no plants. These are Bdgar, Fairfield.
Friend. Geneva, O'Neill, Oakland, Ponoa,
Sidney, Vniveraity Place, Weeping .Water,
Bed Cloud and St. Paul. Of the forty-nine
having plants nine hare both gas and
electric light aystema. Grand Island had
two electric light planta and one gas plant.
Tha total value of tho gas plants Is give
as 1273,500, and of tha electric light plant
In the matter of water works In these
cities Sidney, Fairfield and Auburn are
without systems. Tha plants are owned
by private corporations In these towns:
Broken Bow, Fairbury, Kearney, McCook,
Nebraska City, North Platte. Plattsmoutn,
Wahoo and York The total value of the
water works systems In returned at
12.337,400. the Individual valuaa ranging
'lotu lU.OtiO- fur North Bend to UCO.OuO at
Fremont. The system at Hastings Is
valued at 1175,000, at Nebraxka City at
iloO.rtOilt and at Beatrice at I1H5.0OO. And
slide these cities have shown the greatest
improvement, they ale lead In the matter
f Indebtedness Beatrice heads the list

Pawnee City, Tecumseh, University Place,
Weeping Water and York. The last named
I the only city In the state with a populn
tion of over 2.(00 that haa no saloon. Wayne
haa the highest saloon license, it costing
the man 11.600 to do business, while Sidney
Is the lowest priced. Charging only $W0.
As to churches, Beatrice and Nebraska
City lead the list with eighteen each. While
In the number of schools Wahoo has fifteen.

the homes of the laboring man and tha
Inducement held out are good. Laborers
are paid on the average of $1.79 a day, and
for man and team $3.10 a day.
Every one of these towns I enjoying a
steady and substantial growth. During the

marked to prevent their use aa postage, as
an eniclul courtesy, and It is known that
a large number of these stamps have
