1 Jaakla Act Pits Insnranee.
Attorney General Brown said today that
the Junkln anti-trust law, passed at the
recent session of the legislature, undoubt
edly applies to Insurance combines and
compacts, so that the question as to the
effect of the recent decision of the United
Btates supreme court In the Iowa case on
the- anti-compact statute of 1897 Is not of
audi great moment.
Ii has riot' yet had time to consider
w hether he1 will ask the United States su
preme court for an order resuscitating the
pedal act, which was held to be Invalid
by Judge McPherson In 1901. Thex points
on which . Judgo McPherson ruled were
much the -same as those Involved In' the
Iowa case. In which he also rendered the
opinion. In both the judges denied the
right of the legislature to enact laws In
terfering with the freedom of contract
between Insurers, especially as regards
gents' commissions and the manner 'of
doing business. Since the Iowa decision
was rendered, . the . suggestion has been
made that the effect of It would be to re
vive the Nebraska act, although for some
unexplained reason Attorney General
Frout. who was then in office, failed to
take an appeal to the United States su
preme court. Attorney General Brown
was the deputy attorney general at that
time and prepared the briefs In the case,
but he does not recall why the case was
pnt taken up on appeal.
As the matter stands, the ruling of Mc
Therson has been held to be wrong, but
the state took no. appeal , and there Is a
. question a to ' the method of procedure
required to revive the act. One view of
the situation Is that, the failure to appeal
destroyed the vitality, of . the enactment,
while another Is that the attorney general
may ask the supreme court to make an
order permitting the - question as to the
Nebraska enactment , to be . raised once
more. .': ,i f-'m '
Mr. Bron takes the view that the Junkln
law has wwidec enough scope to make It
effective ElUitnork JrL eon, respects the
pecUO4?irM'iore expeditious. No
evidence 6r' 'insurance compacts has been
brought to his attention, but should he
learn that the . provisions of the Junkln
art are being vlolpted by the Insurers he
will take the proper steps to Insure the
enforcemenfer the 14w".

Talk ef Taklaa- t Barker's Case.
Today Attorney Hamer and Deputy At
torney General Thompson discussed the
feasibility of taking up the Barker In
sanity case, which Is still pending in the
Lancaster county district court. Judge
Hamer Instituted the proceedings the day
before Frank Barker, the Webster county
double murderer, was to be hanged. The
court refused to assume Jurisdiction and,
after some controversy, Governor Mickey
Issued a two years' reprieve. The supreme
court held that the, district Judge should
have summoned a Jury to pass on
Barker's sanity. Should the matter be
taken up now. Its only effect would be to
cause Barker's removal to the Insane
asylum, should a Jury of twelve men And
him Insane. The murderer spends a
greater portion of every day In hard work
within the prison walls. Since the reprieve
was granted there has been little talk
questioning his sanity.
Vlast Uw Case Appealed.
Attorney General Brown received notice
today that the defendants In the flag law
case, Nicholas V. Halter and Harry V.
Hay ward of Omaha, have appealed to the
supreme court of the United States from
the decision of the state supreme court
sustaining the validity of the enactment.
The law was sustained on the ground that
It was a legitimate exercise of the police
power. The defendants were convicted of
violating the law in having used a print
of the national flag as a beer label, and
were fined 1100 each under Its provisions.

Trying; to Seen re Land.
Today, In the supreme court, one of the

John Irwin, a pioneer settler of Wash

farm lands deeded by Irwin in 1866, thirty
eight years ago. It Is alleged that Irwin

was filed within ten years under the theory
that the occupants of the lands had never

During the summer months the city council

This left the city without a Ore alarm,
except the bell, and the matter has been
a question for the city officials to solve,

the bell has proved to be Insufficient. M.
L. Lane, local manager of the Nebraska

and a wire has bee run from the tekphene
office to the electrlo light power house
of Bell Son, and In case of fire the
central office Is notified and the telephone
operator, by simply touching a button,
blows the whistle. A special fire whistle
will be attached and the giving of the fire
alarm will be even better than under the

Columbia faculty, expressed'. themselves as
Very much pleased at the. .action taken by
the students of the university at a mass

adoption of a moderately worded petition
that the faculty committee on undergrad

that Its members may present their argu

finally banished from Columbia. Dr. Butler
"When the petition Is presented it will
receive careful consideration, to which It
is entitled. The faculty generally are

alleged land frauds In this state and has
demanded the Immediate resignation of the
receiver, Albert L. Towle. The offices for
the present will be In charg of a special
agent of the general land .Office.
It Is charged Pettljohn and two other
persons fraudulently secured lands which
others entered upon and which later were
relinquished to Pettljohn.
The removal of Pettljohn and Towle Is
the result of the sweeping Investigation by
special Inspectors of ths land office, which
has been In progress In the state for a
number of weeks. During their Investi
gation It waa discovered that In the
Valentine land district the local land
officers had themselves set up "dummies;'
to make entries of government land for
the use and benefit of the government
officials; that these officers had been In
collusion with the Illegal land fencers
and with those who had made fraudulent
entries and that they had derived personal
profit thereby. The removal of the register
and receiver does not come as a surprise
to those who have been keeping In close
touch with the matter.
Both Mr. Pettljohn and Mr. Towle have
long been residents of Nebraska and some
what active in politics. Towle Is a pioneer
resident of Niobrara, at one time repre
senting that district in the Nebraska legis
lature. Pettljohn is at the present time a
member of the republican state committee.
Beglaalag of Upheaval.
The recent investigations were precipi
tated from the proceedings begun in the
United States district attorney's qffice at
Omaha several months ago. Chief Inspeo
tor Hunt, with twenty special agents, was
sent Into the territory to , follow up the
Invettigatlons begun by the department of
Justice from this city. Special Agent Pol
lock came to the field several weeks ago
and only recently has finished his work.
He was In Omaha about a week ago and
Intimated something would be doing up
about Valentine In the near future.
The district attorney's office In Omaha
was not Informed as to the character of
the Investigations carried on by the special
corps of agents, other than the Intlmstlon
was given that fraudulent filings were
among the special features looked into
with the astonishing results.
The announcement, through an Interview
with District Attorney Baxter, was made
In The Bee several days ago that Nebraska
likely would become the storm center of the
land fraud Investigations and the removal
of the Valentine land office officials as
stated by an official connected with the
department of Justice here In Omaha, "Is
merely the beginning, with some Interest
ing developments yet to follow."

WOMAN'S ROME COMPANION
We are very fortunate In befog able to arrange with the publisher
of these well known magaslnea to offer their publications at this sen
sational price. It la an opportanlty not often presented. Never before
baa a publisher been able to make so liberal aa offer on exclusive high
grade and high priced magaslaes.
You ask bow Is this offer possible if the three magazines have a
fixed value and are not like the eommodltlee usaallr offered rt bargain
It Is weTI known to evervese in baslnesa that ra fixing a selling
price there must be added te the manufacturing cost the cost oi mar
keting. The cost of marketing a magazine is a big Item, and these
three publishing houses decided to unify their efforts to get new read
ers, making one organisation do the work, and divide the cost of mar
keting by three. That la why yon ean buy these magaslnea, that fit
the needs of every home, for nearly half price.
THE TWENTIETH CENTURY FARMER
This is a magazine designed for every member of the farm home.
Special articles on subjects of the greatest Interest are printed each?
week. These are written by men of national reputation and cover a
field so diversified as to embrace during the year all branches of farm
activity and life. Frank O. Carpenter's "Letters of Travel" and Wil
liam Jennings Bryan's "Around the World Letters" appear in no
other agricultural paper. Either one of these features are worth the
price of a year's subscription. No other farm paper maintains so many
regular departments, such as Feeding, Live Stock, Veterinary. Dairy,
Poultry, Crops, Farm Devices, Orchard and Garden, with four pages
devoted to the women, young folks and children. Each of these de
partments is edited by a practical editor and not by a theorist.
