LINCOLN. Feb. i. t&pecial.j Between
Jovernor Mirkty and Land Commissioner
Katon there Is something doing. At an ex
ecutive session of the Board of Educational
Lands and Fundi thli morning the two be
tune so eiclted over a proposition that
Mr. La ton left the meeting In a huff, after
hotly exclaiming to the governor:
"Well, you had better come over and
run mjr office yourself."
The proposition was whether a record
should be made when, the bosrd had de
cided that person was entitled to a deed
to school lands. Heretofore It has been
customary for the land commissioner to
make out the deed and take It to the gov
ernor to sign. The latter has always
signed without looking up the record, of
course leaving that entirely In the bands
of the land commissioner. This morning
the governor suggested that It would be
a good Idea for the board to meet and de
cide who were entitled to deeds and make
a record of the board's action. Then the
deeds would be made out and properly
This, of course, would add much to the
work In the land commissioner's office.
which Is Just now being performed by a
force not at all too large, and Eaton ob
jected to the new duties. It was when the
governor Insisted KB ton suggest ed that the
governor had better run the land com
The board probably will decide to have
the record made of the purchaser's right
to the deed, so In case a mistake should be
made In the deed the board could fall back
on Its record.
Good Story, bat Tint Trie.
An Investigation made by Secretary Piper
of the State Board of Charities and Corree
tions at Newman Grove has completely dis
credited a yellow, though Interesting, story
published here and sent east. The story
was to the effect that Mrs. Nels Anderson,
the wife of a convict In the state peniten
tiary, was not permitted to secure a deed
to the homestead upon which she had filed
because the husband was a convict In the
penitentiary- It went on to say that Mrs.
Anderson had been thrown out In the cold.
cold world, with ten children and no money
with which to support them. A party In
New York saw the article and sent it to
Governor Mickey. The governor at onco
appointed Mr. Piper to Investigate and re
port to him the true facts In the case. Mr.
Piper has Just returned and his report will
shortly be filed with the governor.
Mr. Piper found that Mrs. Anderson had
filed on the homestead, but Instead of living
on It she had resided on the homestead of
a brother cf Anderson's, which adjoins the
Anderson homestead. H. S. Clark filed
contest against Mrs. Anderson, getting
deed to the property, alleging that she had
not resided on It. A day for the hearing
was set and Mrs. Anderson was notified to
be present. She did not attend the hearing
and In view of the showing made by Clark
the entry made by Mrs. Anderson was can

man Orore, where ' she Is living on sn
eighty-acre farm with her parents, and he
volunteered his assistance and the help of
the governor to see that she get a square
deal. Mrs. Anderson, so Mr. Piper said, told
him that she could cot make a living on
. the homestead and neither would she re.
move to It as It would not raise a crop
and was only fit for grazing. She was sat
Isfied. Mr. Plner said, and Instead of being
in straightened circumstances was doing
very well and had a good home.
The part of the story that a woman
whose husband was a convict could not file
nn a homestead was also false, said Mr.
Piper, as the law allows a woman deserted
by her husband or divorced or who Is d
pendent noon herself to take up a home

It is evident that Douglas county farmers

evident, also, that bougUs county is

HASTINGS. Neh.. Feb. . (Special.) In
a letter to Senator Mlilard, In tesponse to
the latter'g request. Hon. John M. Rajran
of this city, former commissioner of th
supreme court, urges numerous and vigor
ous objections to the Furkett bill for the
creation of a "South Platte federal dis
trict." Mr. Ragan, as president of the
Adams County Bar association. Is taking
a leading part In the opposition to the
proposed division. It was at his suggestion
the.t the movement was started for th !
public condemnation of the bill in this
county at a mass meeting two weeks ago.
Mr. Ragan a few days ago received a
letter from Senator Millard asking him to
outline the objections entertained by the
lawyers here to the Furkett bill. "These
objections are not confined to the lawyers."
says Mr. Ragan in his reply, "but are the
objections of the business men, professional
men, bankers and voters west of a line
drawn north and south through the state,
along the west line of Clay county."
After asserting that two districts are
unnecessary' and vouchsafing the opinion
that after the government land fencing

All for Lincoln's Beneflt.
"We sre not such a lot of Reubens In
this state, though living a hundred and
fifty miles west of the Missouri river, but
that we understand the purpose of Burk
ett's bill, viz.: to give some one a life
position as Judge, another a position as
marshal, still another a position as clerk,
and the Judge to be appointed from Lin
coln and do all of the business of the
southern district In Lincoln. This would
be good for Lincoln's hotelkeepers. If
this state Is divided now according to the
Burkett bill it will require the western
part of the state fifty years to change It,
whereas If the district remains as It Is we
people In the western part of the state
may some dsy have a man In the United
States senate who will pay some attention
to our rights and conveniences and so ar
range the federal districts that a litigant
shall not have to travel 4"0 miles and back
and spend $500 to obtain $150 worth of
Mr. Ragan next declares that the griev
ance bf litigants and witnesses In the
western part of the stats will not be
remedied by the passage of the measure,
for the reason that under its terms they
would have to travel practically as far
with the court located in Lincoln as they
do to the court In Omaha. He asserts that
more than 60 per cent of the business In
the Nebraska federal district originates
west of the west line of Clay county.
Continuing he says:
Prejadlcc Agalast Federal Coarts.
"There Is in this state a prejudice and a
distrust against the federal courts and
Judges, and while you and I know that
these are unfounded and that the federal
Judges are honest, able and upright men.
and If there Is any place In the state where
one can obtain exact Justice according to
law it Is In the federal courts, yet the mass
of the people do not understand this and
the fact that all cases In the federal courts
have to be tried either In Omaha or Lincoln,
is responsible for much of this prejudice. A
litigant has the right, and should have the
opportunity of having his case tried in or
somewhere near his domicile. It is mon
strous In this age of the world that a man
living in Trenton or Kimball and sued In
the federal court should be compelled to
travel to Omaha or Lincoln to make his de
fense. To divide Nebraska Into two fed
eral districts, with the Platte liver for the
dividing line, is to make the two districts
400 miles in length and 100 mileswlde. What
statesman can Justify such a pieoe of po-Utico-mandering
If a more equitable division for the west
ern part of the state cannot be secured Mr.
Ragan suggests, provided relief for the
court Is necessary, that another Judge,
marshal and clerk be appointed for the
present district, leaving the opportunity
open for the west to be heard on the sub
ject in the future.
"We are not enemies of Mr. Burkett nor
Senator Millard." adds Mr. Ragan. "but we
hate this Burkett bill as the devil hates
holy water. We love Omaha very much, we
love Lincoln some, and we have an abiding
and enthusiastic loyalty and love for that
part of Nebraska In which are to be found
the golden corn and wheat fields, the al
fulfa fields, the cattle ranches and sheep
ranches, and In which will shortly be found,

thl matter Senator Burkett Is handicapped
by the wishes of the locality where he re
sides. But you. Senator Millard, are not
''-mpelled to a support of
measure by the wishes of your fellow citi
zens of Omaiia. You are free to give this
matter a calm, dispassionate and careful
