LINCOLN. rb. 6-i Special. -The dif
ference between Governor Mickey and I-and
C'ouimlsslotuT Kalon over making out d'-cds
lor school lands Is ended. The board will
meet and make a record of mho ia entitled
to the land when the lust payment Is made.
Mr. Katon haa consented to the eua-festlon
of the aovernor and will not buck the
proposition farther, even though lie did
fly up last Saturday.
"The law on the question Is plain." said
Jlr. Baton, "ami Governor Mlrkey has In
terpreted the law correctly. TheVeason I
objected waa because the practice has been
for twenty-six years to have the land com
missioner make out the deed when the
receipt of final payment was received from
the county treasurer. The deed was then
written up In this office and taken to the
arovernor and the secretary of state to siirn.
The record of this board Is kept in this
office and. besides that, to follow the law
In the matter as the a-overnor desires to
do will mean that people who have made,
a last payment on tliclr land will have to
wnlt a full month before they get their
deeds. This board meets once a month
and there Is no way a special meeting can
be called. Of course we can adjourn from
day to day and keep record, but thnt Is a
whole lot of trouble, as the member of
the board are not all here when a meeting
"ITowcver, T have no objections to com
plying with, the law. as the governor sue
irested. T shall do the work In this office,
as we have always done, and the board
will meet and make n record of those who
are entitled to deeds."

Ranches er Ogalalla Save stork

OGALALLA, Neb.. Feb. S. (Special.)
A prairie fire got started Saturday In the
sand hills In the north part of the county
! and. driven by a high wind, came south
and reached the North Tlatte valley about
I 12 o'clock that night. A large force of
I men were on hand trying to check and
confine the fire as much as possible and
were partially successful. There is nothing
but the grass to lose by fire In the hills,
but In the valley are many valuable Im
provements and many, stacks of hay, as
well as mary head of live stock now In
winter quarters and being fed hay. By the
use of three-disk plow and eight mules
hitched to It. driving In a trot or fast walk
right ahead of the fire, with men riding
behind to put out the fire as it reached
the furrow, and for miles and miles In this
manner confining the fire to narrower
limits, so that when It reached the valley
It was only about three miles In width,
much more serious damage was averted.
However, a half doxen ranchers were
burned out. The wind had settled a little
re-fore the fire reached the valley, so they
were able to save their buildings and live
stock, and the main loss will be the hay
stacks which were burned, though this
loss of hay ought not to occasion a loss of
stock, as there would have been a surplus
of hay. the winter having been so mild.

Klnley should be progressive, loyal, opti
mistic and should lead the line of legiti
mate nolli leal endeavor. It has a great
exemplar of all these things in the career
of the man of whom some poet has writ
"Ynuth proclaimed him as a hero;
Time a statesman; love a man:
Death has claimed him as a martyr;
So from goal to goal he ran.
Tasting all the sum of glory
That a human life may span."
Memory of McKlnley.
In these days when tricky statesmen and
opulent commercial pirates are undermln
Ing public confidence or openly defying
the law it is well to keen In mind that
to tho hour of his death William McKlnley
preserved his sweet and strong faith in
the American people. Pessimism had no
advocate In him. He was a fearless and a
confident Christian optimist. He was
never a political brawler. He had learned
self-control and patience under army dis
cipline. Peaceful, he was brave and de
termined In constructive statesmanship. In
opinion forceful and consistent, he was yet
the soul of courtesy and toleration. He
was an administrator of genius; never a
dictator, but always a wise counsellor; not
proud in Ills own opinion except on the
jiasic things. The beneficent Influence of
his life lives as an Inspiration to great and
to humble alike.
A club professing what this club does

Speaking from the national standpoint
the speaker said:
There never was a, time In the history
of this nation when we wr really on safer
ground. The fact that graft is being rer
retted out on many sides is- of itself evi
dence that public opinion Is bringing out

After telling a few anecdotes of stateJ

the responsibilities of those serving the
people at Lincoln.
I take It that many here have political
aspirations, and to such I would say that
if you discharge your duties In public office
you should you will subserve personal
Intererts. You should discharge those du
ties as you believe to be right, regardless
of the consequences. You owe It to your
self and constituents to serve your state
to the best of your ability. You should
keep posted on all interests, all issues,
read the papers and know what is going on
through the state and at the state house.
You should not evade or shift responsi

SALOON CASES DISMISSED
Board Takes Action on Renaest
f the CI vie Federation
No business of Importance was transacted
at the meeting of the Board of Fire and
Pollca commissioners last night, although
two matters of moment had been set for
disposal at that time. One of these was
the trial of the cases against twenty-two
saloonkeepers for keeping open on Sunday.
Their dismissal having been requested by-
Elmer E. Thomas for the Civic federation,
they were so ordered. The other was the
petition of the firemen for a new schedule
of hours on duty so as to give each man
twenty-four hours off In each six days.
This matter failed to come up, as the com
mittee to which It was referred at the last
meeting of the board did not report
A comunlcatlon from Samuel Curtis, the
owner of the fire station at Eighteenth and
Harney streets, was read. In which the
rent of the property was raised from $2,800,
as at present, to $3,S. The latter re
counted the fact that the rent at one time
was $3,500, but with the advent of hard
times was reduced $1,000. Mr. Curtis said
he believed It to be time for the former
rate to be resumed. The tetter was laid
over to be taken up later. The saloon
license of the Val Blats Brewing company
of Milwaukee for the storage house at
810 Douglas street was ordered renewed,
and a few smaller matters disposed of
