Island In Bine River by
BEATRICE, Neb., Sept. 18. (Special Tele
gram.) George Mlchela and Lou. Davis,
who reside at Harmon, Neb., had a thrill
ing experience which they are not likely to
forget. The young men purchased a camp
tng and fishing outfit in this city and
pitched their tent on an Island in the Blue
river near the mouth of Bear creek. The
downpour of Thursday night caused such
a rise In the river they were awakened
by the rushing of water around their camp.
The night being very dark, it was with
difficulty they succeeded In climbing a tree
where they were held prisoners for forty
eight hours without food or sleep.
Not being able to attract attention from
either shore on account of the noise caused
by the rushing waters they finally con
cluded their only show was to swim ashore,
which they did with great difficulty, nearly
losing their Uvea. They came to this city
today, having lost their entire outfit, and
they aay they think they will return home.
Saloon Man Paniabed.
BLAIR, Neb., Sept. 18. (Special.) The
saloon of Alex Finlayson was closed this
morning by order of Mayor Williams for
violating the Sunday closing law. An or
dinance passed by the council last spring
allowed the proprietor of each saloon to
have from 7 to a. m. and S to p. m.
for the purpose of cleaning up and fixing
fires In the winter. The saloon men
were called before the council and agreed
to the above before they were granted a
license. Finlayson, It ia allged, has vio
lated this ordinance In one or two In
stances before and m-as notified by tha
mayor that It must not occur again. Five
of the six councilmen stood pat with the
mayor and the saloon will be closed for
two days In lieu of a fine and the matter
will not be brought Into court. Friends
of Finlayson are loud In their' denuncia
tion of the closing act. claiming that the
other six saloons are guilty of the same
offense. Mayor Williams aaka for the
proof and aaya. he will give them the same
discipline if the evidence la produced.
Prlae Corn front Blair.
BLAIR, Neb.. Sept. 18 ( Special. ) The
finest bunch of corn, counting height of
stalks, size of ears and distance of ears
from ground, that has yet been produced
In this county was brought In today by
J. W. Jacobs, living five miles north of
Blair on the large ranr owned by Judge
W. C. Walton of this city, and was shipped
to Omaha tonight for exhibition. The six
stalks, with seven large ears of corn on
them, average fifteen feet In height and the
blirlieet ear Is about elgnt feet from the
ground. Mr. Jacobs says he has ISO acres
of thls.com and estimates rhat It will
go over eighty bushels to the acre.

LINCOLN. Sept. IS. (Special. No deposi
tions were taken today In the grain case be
cause, owing to the rains, none of the wit
nesses reached Lincoln. Attorney General
Norrls Brown. Tom Worrall and Attorney
Howell and the attorneys for the grain
men were here, but could do nothing In the
matter as the witnesses were shaent. The
attorneys for the grain mn filed In each
case a demurrer and with the exception of
the Nye-Schneider-Fowler company all were
Identical. .This latter company claimed the
Injunction was asked for under the Junkln
law and that Information of the alleged
transactions of the grain men before that
law was enacted Is not germane. In Its
motion this onmpany alleges the petition of
the state Is framed as a suit In equity under
the Junkln act. which took effect July 1,
1906, and no other law previously enacted or
now In force will support such an action In
equity. It Is alleged that the Junkln act. If
It Is nw enforced at all. and applicable to
this case, repealed by Implication all prior
statutes on this subject, hence all acts oc
curring prior to July 1. I!n5. are immaterial
and should not be permitted to be pleaded.
This defendant therefore moves to strike
from the petition the words "for the last
three years," and If the plaintiff desires to
substitute any other time therefor to limit
such time to a date not prior to July 1, 1906.
In the alternative If the foregoing be over
ruled then to vacate the restraining order.
The demurrer of the other grain men al
leges: First That the court Is without Jurisdic
tion over the subject matter.
Second Thst the court Is without Juris
diction over the person of this defendant
causes of action.
Fourth That there Is a misjoinder of par
Fifth And for the further reason that
said application and petition falls to state
facts sufficient to constitute a cause of ac
tion In favor of the state of Nebraska and
against this defendant.
All Courtesies Returned.
It has Just come to light this mo-nlng
that when Governor Mickey, Attorney Gen-
eral Norrls Brown. Superintendent McBrlen
, T ,, r- jr.. a
their passes to the railroads, thej- also sent
back Pullman passes, telegraph franks and
express franks. When asked regarding
these matters McBrlen and Eaton said they
had returned everything which could pos
sibly be construed as free transnortatlon,
while Governor Mickey and Norrls Brown
said they had made a clean sweep of every
thing. Next Friday members of the Roard of
Public Lands and Buildings will pay rail-
road fare to Norfolk to take a look at the
asylum. Deputy Land Commissioner Fhive
ley paid his railroad fare to the west end
of the state today to look after some state
business. Of course. Mr. Shlvelev and other
state officers will turn their expense ac
count In to the state, consequently to be
without passes will not be a death blow to
them, notwithstanding the humiliation they
may suffer by having to travel like ordinary
citizens and ray their own way when
traveling for personal reasons. ,
Snpreme Judaea Conanlt.
The Judges of the supreme court met In
consultation today preparatory to the open
ing of the session tomorrow. The calendar
is unusually long, and It Is probable that
on their own motion the Judges will con
tinue several caaes. Attorney General
Brown has seventeen cases on the call and
Is ready for trial In all of them, but It Is
understood that In several caaes a con
tinuance will be asked by the other side.
Chief Justice Holoomb, against the advice
of his friends and family, came to the state
house this afternoon to participate In the
consultation of the Judges. Judge Holcomb
has never missed a session of the court
since his election, and notwithstanding his
very severe 111 health, his appearance at
the state house created little surprise. A
number of sttorneys who are here are urg
ing Judge Holcomb to keep off the bench
until his health Is Improved.

Looking; 1 p Legislative Records.
Mambera of the late legislature who are
candidates for re-election will have to face
the records they made In that session dur
ing the coming campaign. A well-known
politician who has had much to do with the
agitation against the railroad domination
iu politics was at the state house this
morning to secure a copy of the house
Journal from which he desired to take the
record on railroad legislation of every mem
ber of the house. The house Journals, for
some reason or other, are not yet publlahed.
and this man wondered If there was any
reason for this delay, and he intimated
that Inasmuch as the railroads were al
ready busy selecting candidates for the
legislature, that the book, were being held
back until everything was set. He said:
"The member of the legislature who re
fused to commit himself on railroad legisla
tion, or who was a railroad tool during the
last session will have hard sledding getting
Into the next session. The record of every
member will be published In the county
papers In the county In which he is a can
didate, and Dothing will be left undone to
show such members up in their true light
to the people alio trusted them."
I rains Special geaalon.
Governor Mickey Is still receiving numer
ous requests to call a special session, gome
are anxious that he wait until be sees what
action the railroads will take on their Its
taxes, while others desire the seaalon called
Immediately after election. One man at
the state house today said that he had re
ceived information from a merchant at
Grand Island that in ordering a car of sugar
1 from California, it was necessary for him
to pay freight rates from Omaha to Grand
Island even though the train reached
Grarul Island before It did Omaha and tha
sugar was never In Omaha. He also said
that In buying sugar manufactured In
Grand Island the merchants had to pay tha
added freight rates from Grand fsland to
Omaha and back, even though the sugar
was never more than a mile from the mer
chant s place of business.
It Is such Instances as these that are be
ing called to the attention of the governor
as a reason for the apeclal session of the
legislature. The governor hesitates to call
a special session because the members who
wretUd. owu-iw u did Uxtuing; ea Uiejr
had the 'opportunity and may repeat the
Inakrri of Lealaletnre Resign.
N. r. Jackson, member of the house from

Of the senate from Richardson county, have
tendered their resignations. The former Is
now a supreme court commissioner and the
latter holda a Judicial position in Arizona.
area Jadsre'a Embarrassment.
It la common talk around the state house
that considerable embarrassment haa been
saved some one by the defeat of Commis
sioners E. R. Duffle and Ames for the re
publican candidate for supreme Judge. Had
either been made the nominee It Is said not
less than three men would have Journeyed
to Lincoln, each with a promise In his
pocket for the place made vacant In the
commission by the elevation to the bench
of the commissioner. The men whose names
are connected with the place are Judge
Hamer of Kearney, who made a speech In
favor of McGUton for chairman; Abbott of
Grand Island and "Jack" Martin of Central
Marries Despite Protest.

ALBION The Boone county fair will
open tomorrow with the brightest prospects
In Its history. I'nless the weather, which
is now threstening. interferes, the exhibits
will far outstrip former years. There will
be more speed horses entered, and faster
races than ever before.
TABLE ROCK The Nemaha is out of
Its banks and higher than It has been for
some time. Many of the corn fields are
under water. The rural route men were
unable to get over their routes yesterday
snd no one from east of the river was able
to get across Into town.
OSCEOLA The Polk County Fair asso
ciation over which Grant T. Ray presides
as secretary, begins its twenty-eighth an

has spared no pains or expense to make
this the most successful fair that has ever
been held In the county.
BEATRICE The Cnion Pacific put an
extra force of men to work Sunday morning
and succeeded in getting its track repaired
near Holniesvllle, which was washed out
by the high water a few days ago. The
first train to cross Sunday was the one pull

LEIGH A real estate deal was made
here yesterday that shows how the values
of farm land are increasing In this vicinity.
Henry Frank, sr.. sold his l-acre farm
to Lowle Robert for 175 per acre. This
farm is located two miles east of town.
Is broken and badly cut up by a creek, and
la not very elaborately Improved. Five
years ago t per acre would have been
a big price for this farm.
COZAD A terrific hall and rain storm
visited this locality about midnight do
ing considerable damage. Almost all the
windows facing west are broken. The hall
stones ranged from the size of marbles
to that of a goose egg Corn was too well
matured to suffer much damage, although
the fodder was destroyed. The course of
the storm was from southwest to north
east and not very wide.
NORFOLK Northern Nebraska was
drenched by another downpour of rain
which started at midnight and continued
nles because of the "black hand" style of
far-reaching acts that made life a misery i
or wiped out the Individual altogether.
Then it dawned on some of us that the
people the 780 out of every 800 were not
members of the labor trust, but really had
to bear the oppression of the minority and
be ruled by them. There are only about
20 union members In ever' "00 citizens.
But the compact organisation of the few
made It possible for the labor 'trust In
many cases to force their tyranny on the
unorganized majority. The next natural
thought was organize the people for their
That was an Inspired thought
So, to put It into practical operation, a
big convention In Chicago two years ago
formed the Citizens' Industrial Association
of America. It progressed slowly, for,
however badly hurt, people do not quickly
understand practical reforms. But one
after another towns organized Associa
tions for protection, and found they got It.
In July, this year, thf National Association
headquarters was moved to New York, and
the work has been growing rspidly. Many
more organisers are needed that the
operations be rapidly extended. But any
town or city can set up a good, practical
Association by some one man who has the
interest of his town st heart calling a few
property owners together. Elect tem
porary officers, send to the National As
sociation for constitution, by-laws and de
tailed Instructions, then have a larger
meeting and permanently organize. Se
lect a good working official who can Inter
est others and build up the Association.
The cost Is practically nothing if the
active man will give his time, although It
has been found best to pay a salaried man
who will do things. Every merchant be
comes interested, because he prospers best
when the factories are going Every
clerk, doctor, lawyer, manufacturer, team
ster and independent workman likewise.
Even the thrifty, law-abiding union men
mill help in enforcing Industrial peace and
maintaining the law. If they can be as

practical way Insure that How do we

SCHUYLER A heavy rain started this
morning ahd continued until late this sft
ernoon. About .56 Inch of water fell.
During the past six days 8.2 inches of
water have fallen here, according to the
gauge at the Burlington station. The sur
face water from the country west of town
Is flowing through the streets to the ditch
east of town. West Vine street resembles
a creek, while the lowlands In the Third
ward are all under water. The flooded
condition of the streets emphasizes the
need of a ditch west of town, such as the
Ehrnberger drainage ditch will be.

"Another week and all corn will be out

You should see
the results. Do ths
working people want steady work and
j steady wages? Do the merchants, clerks
lawyers and teamsters, as well aa other
citizens? Do the manufacturers appreciate
steady peace? Do the rallroa downers
care to have each town on the line hum
ming along day by day and the railroad
employes living In satisfied peace? Is it
worth while for people in a community to
enjoy a steady flow of prosperity In place
of the badly broken condition of Industrial
warfare now and then fixed on many com
munities? To produce effective work the
National Association must have financial
means to carry the clerical force and em
ploy a small army of competent organ
izers In the field. Some prominent men,
keen to detect the practical workings, have
contributed liberally. Manufacturers can
afford to contribute from 1100.00 to 110.000.00
each. "A strike Is as bad as a fire," snd
this is simply a very easy and certain
form of strike Insurance. Merchants can
well afford to expend 85.00 to 8X00 a year
toward the work. Philanthropic people
with a motive for helping their fellows
can Invest their "public good" funds In
no mare practical way, and the working
man and common citizen of small means
mho feels a desire to do his little share
towards a great national movement for
Industrial peace can send $1 .00, fifty cents

police protection, the civil courts and all
officers and laws that exist for the pro
tection of tha common people shows plainly
the tendency towards Socialism and An
archy, which will grow like weeds In an
uncared-for garden. Men who have re
gard for the sacred mantle of liberty
fought for. won and handed down to us
are patriots enough to stand together and
save this fair America from the chaos
hinted at by the lawbreakers But they
cannot give force to their views acting aa
Individuals. Organization must meet pres
ent organization with superior force. When
the citizens are organized they do tha
work and Insure Industrial paace. It Is
the business of the National Citizens' As
sociation to organise local A Hnociatlons In
every community. Experience has taught
the way and the results show how prac
tical the methods are. Are you a patriot?
Do you believe in steady Industry? Do yon
want the common people to have the or
ganization and power to rule, notwith
standing the "orders" and manipulations
of the labor trust or any other trust? Do
you believe In maintaining the law and
Insuring Industrial peace? If so, be you
merchant, workman, clerk, lawyer, team
ster or railroad president. Join the Citi
zens' Industrial Association. It costs you
56 rents to be a member at large and 50
cents for the monthly publication, the
"Square Deal," which keeps you alive as
to facts. Send tl Oil bill In envelope; It s
safe, almost without fall. If you have any
doubt send money order. Do your little
share, and If your further Interests sre
worth Insuring send In sddltion a prop
erly computed sum for the work. If you
are big enough mentally to build a big
business, you have mental caliber suffi
cient to tell you what to do
Will the money be honestly handled?
The Aaaoclatlon put the writer at the
wheel to steer the ship, and I am "most
always around." and do not hesitate to
give my personal guarantee that when
the finance committee makes the semi
annual Inspection we will, like I'ncle Abe
IJneoln when he kept jwistonVe up at
Salem, have projrly receipted bills and
the balance of the money to a cent "In
the sock." I receive no salary or other
compensation and expert none. Now. then,
the practical working miu-.ln ry for In
dustrial peace Is placed liefnre you. Some
good men are furnishing fuel to run it
moderately. By liberal support It can be
made a national power for general peace.
