(From a Sua Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Juljr U.-tSpeciaD-Membere
of the State Board of Publlo Land and
Buildings are seriously considering closina
V.p one of the buildings used In connection
witn tne industrial home at Mllford, pro
viding they cannot And a way to cloae
the entire Institution. At the present time
1 there are thirty-live Inmates besides three
oncers and live employes at the Institu
tion, or there were when the last report
Waa made a month ago. The per capita
cost for caring for these for the six
. months waa $162.20 for the 182 days. While
this is not as large as the per capita at
the 'Nebraska City -Institution It Is con
sidered entirely too high for the good the
Institution does. It Is claimed that the
unfortunates there could be sent to an
Institution In Omaha at a cost of not more
than 125 for the patient, and the children
Inmates could be taken Into the Home of
the Friendless. To keep up both the build
ings it will require repairs to cost not
less than $10,000 and this the board does
not want to spend. A great effort was
made during the late legislature to con
solidate this Institution with the Home for
the Ftlendleoa, but It failed. The legis
lature appropriated 121.200 for maintaining
the Institution for the next two years and
?nost of this will be spent.
Normal Board Meeting.
The State Normal board will meet at
Kearney Friday afternoon to pass on rou
tine matters and attend to regular business
which will coma up at the meeting.
Session lwa Inaccurate.
If all the laws enacted by the late legis
lature went Into the printed volumes of
the session laws In the same shape as
the Omaha charter the printed session
laws will be a poor guide for those who
Intend to study the matter passed by the
legislature. Assistant City Attorney Herd
man of Omaha was here today checking up
the printed charter with the enrolled bill
and found mistakes almost too numerous
to mention.
For Instance, In section 22, wherein pro
vision Is made for taxing the cost of Im
proving streets and alleys, the original
bill read: "They shall also have power
to assess the cost of such Improvement
upon the property especially benefited
thereby," while in the ook It appears,
"Thry shall also have power to assess
the cost of such Improvement upon the
abutting property." '
On page 80 two lines of the book are
duplicates of the preceding two lines. It
occurs In a provision for requiring the
treasurer to receive no Interest on publlo
funds and directing his removal In case of
violation. That part of the section reads In
the published book as follows:
"Any violation of this provision or any
violation of the provisions of this act shall
subject him .to Immediate removal from
office by the city council, who are hereby
authorised to declare such office vacant;
and the mayor, with the consent of the
city council, . the ctty council who are
hereby authorised to declare such office va
cant: and tha mayor, with the consent of
the city council, shall appoint a successor,"
ete - h" . i
On page 118... In a provision authorising
property owners to select materials to be
used In paving, etc., two lines are again
duplicated and the duplication run together.
In section It, wherein are designated the
salaries to be paid firemen and policemen
In the various six months' periods of serv
ice no provision is made for payment of
anything for the fifth six months. The
aecMon reads In part: "Each policeman
and fireman hereafter appointed shall re
ceive the following compensation: For the
first six months' service the sum of 250 per
month; for the second six months' service,
K6 per month; for the third six months'
service, Yts per month: for the fourth six
months service, $65 per month; for the
sixth six months'' service, $75 per month,"

Bryant Praetlf Law.
Judge Wilbur F. Bryant, who for over
five years has been supreme court reporter,
whose term of office will expire September
1, Is thinking seriously of opening law
offices In Lincoln and Hartlngton, his old
home. Judge Bryant has had several prop
ositions to enter law firms, but has about
conoluded to form his own firm.
Cat la Carpet Bill.
The State Board of Publlo Lands and
Buildings Is watching things closely of late.

bought by sample for use 1n the Grand
Island. Soldiers' Home. .When It arrived
Land Commissioner Eaton discovered that
the goods were lighter than the sample,
and the board promptly cut off 12V4 cents

Owners of bicycles which are propelled by
other than muscular power, that Is those
machines with the motor attachment, must
register the same with the secretary of
state, pay $1 to do so and secure a tag with
a number Just like the owners of auto
mobiles have done. Every day that this Is
not done these people stand as violators
of the law. The automobile law defines
motor vehicles as follows:

Galasha In a Quandary.
Secretary of State Oalusha Is up In "the
air on one of the bills passed by the late
legislature. The bill In question Is H. R
2K Introduced by C. J. Anderson of Doug

protection of trade marks, labels and forms
of advertising, and It was especially desired
enacted by the labor unions. The bill pro
vides that a fee of $2 shall be paid to the
secretary of state upon the filing of a trade
mark or label. As the statute does not re
quire the secretary to turn the money over
to the treasurer, and as the constitution
prohibits him from keeping It, the secre
tary Is In a quandary.

Independent Grain Dealer la
Fight with Line Elevators In-
tlons Written.
Thomas D. Worrell, president of the
Worrall Grain company, unfolded part of
his tale of what the Nebraska Grain Deal
ers' association did to him before Notary
Charles O. PearBall'ln room 620, Bee build
Ins;, yesterday afternoon.
Mr. Worrall Is plaintiff in a suit for $128,
(HO damages against members of the asso
ciation, whom he accuses of breaking the
anti-trust laws of the state. He did not
finish his deposition and will begin talking
again at 9 o'clock this morning. His testi
mony Is being taken at the request of the
defendants, who are represented by a host
of lawyers.
For a brief period before Worrall started
to make ,hls deposition he refused to an
swer the questions of opposing counsel
unless they were written out, with his
answers, in plain sight on a typewriter.
This process of notating the testimony was
started by the defendants and the plaintiff
wants to stay by it, because It gives an
opportunity for thought and time in re
plying to questions. Inasmuch as Attor
ney Ed P. Smith, representing N. B. Up
dike, had his hands full of questions al
ready written out, Attorneys Jcfferls and
Howell concluded not to run any risk of
having their client tangled up In a maxe
of rapid fire.

Justify htm In committing the witness for
contempt. Worrall cheerfully expressed
his willingness to go to Jail In order to get
the concessions granted to the other aide.
An Interesting bit of his testimony con
cerned the possession by the secretary of
the State Dealers' association of full in
formation about a car of grain loaded by
a farmer and consigned to the Worrall
company, before the car was anywhere
near Omaha. The secretary came to Wor
rall and tried to Induce him not to handle
the particular car of grain. The plaintiff's
counsel will trx to show that the Informa
tion was transmitted by a railroad com
pany, thus showing collusion, with the so
called grain trust. Other parts of tho
witness' testimony covered much of the
ground embraced in the original petitions,
alleging various kinds of bulldozing by the
Following Worrall this morning will be

subpoenaed by the plaintiff for depositions.
Among the lawyers representing the
grain companies are Myron U Learned,

Clark O'Hanlon of Blair and F. M. Hall
of Lincoln.

and wanted to know If I was. 1 told him
that while we didn't want to do anything
not right that In the last year there had
sprung up In Nebraska a large number
of farmers' elevators, there being from
thirty to thirty-five of them In the state,
and with the establishment of the Omaha
Grain exchange I didn't see how we could
keep from It. He said: 'I am glad to have
this frank and open conversation with you.
I had Intended giving- you some business,
but this being true I will not.' At Kearney
I met George West of Gothenburg. He told
me he had been at the Kearney meeting
and Secretary Miller told them and ad
vised them they must not do business with
the Worrall Grain company. I tried to
convince Mr. West a man had a right to
do business aa he pleased provided he did
not injure his fellow man. I told him we
were going to do business with any elevator
we could, but would not do business with
farmers and scoopshovel houses unless we
were compelled to. I had about the same
conversation with Mr. Sears . of Grand
Secretary Miller Aa-nln.
Attorney Smith' asked the names of per
sons who in July, 1904, refused to ship cr
sell grain to the Worall Grain company
because the company was Irregular. The
wirtiess said that Secretary Miller, In July,
1904, took It upon himself to dictate and
control the policy of every man connected
with the grain business In Nebraska; that
Miller came to him repeatedly and told him
what he "could and would" do If the com
pany kept on doing business with Irregu
lar dealers. He said the secretary threat
ened to "bulletin" the company if It did
not cease such transactions, and that 'lie
witness told the secretary he could not ex
pect to control the business at both the
buying and selling ends, and pointed out to
htm that the establishment of the Omaha
Grain exchange had altered conditions and
put the farmers In a position to add freight
rates to the Omaha quotations and know
whether the prices offered at their stations
were right or not. When the dealers came
In, Bell of David City, Steve Ewart of Lin
coln and James Candy of Havelock and
others told him they had heard very bad
reports about him; that these reports came
from Secretary Miller, .who was reported
aa saying the Worrall Grain company was
taking shipments from farmers, but as a
matter of fact they had not, with the ex
ception of one car loaded at Lincoln, the
consignment not being solicited and prac
tically forced upon them. Witness said
Secretary Miller tried to Induce him not to
handle the shipment, after the bill of lading
had been placed In his hands, this being the
first knowledge the Worrall Grain company
had that the car was loaded. Worrall ex
plained that someone would handle the
shipment and thought he might as well do
it as anyone and get the $10 "honest
money" that was In the deal. He told Mil
ler he would handle it anyway. The car
of grain was finally sold to Merrlam A
Holmqulst. Witness did not know whether
this firm still belonged to the Nebraska
Grain Dealers' association or not.
Not In July, bnt Ana-nst.
Witness was unable to give names of
persons In the state who refused to sell or
consign grain to the company because It
was Irregular In July, 1904, but In the
month of August the Omaha Elevator com
pany, Transmlsslssippl Grain company, Up
dike Grain company and Westbrook-Gib-bons
company, all of Omaha, he said, re
fused to sell the Worrall Grain company
or Its members any grain or to have any
business transactions with them because
they were taking shipments from Irregular
dealers. This lasted for only a few days

PRICED . . . .
The term "high priced" is always
relative. A certain make of piano may
cost a little more than another and yet
the higher priced one would be abso
lutely the cheapest because it is tha
beat value according to cost and wear
ing quality. No matter how little you
may iy for a piano. If ynu get one
that U not satisfactory and one that
costs you considerable to keep it la
playing condition, you will Lave, prao
ucaiiy, tost your money.
are the cheapest for you to buy, cheap
est in the long run; for, while they
may cost a little more than some (and
not so much, by the way, as some
others, on account of the mod.l Kim
ball system of manufacture), yet as the
years go by you will fully n-alize that
Kimball values, $276, i2S, $375. $ to
$7oi), are absolutely the very best piano
value in the market.
If you are not quite ready to pay
caxh for a piano, don't put oft buying
on that account, for we offer you very
easy terms at no advance in price ou
account of your buying on time.
