LINCOLN. March 8. (Special.) The ar
rest of the president and two vice presi
dentp of the New Tork Mutual Reserve
I.lf Insurance company of New Tork will
rail for ho action on th part of the Ne
braska Insurance department, for the rea
son this company has made no application
for a, llcenae to do business In Nebraska
The company wan Drat refuged a license
to do business here last year by the Insur
ance department, but was later granted a
conditional license. The Insurance depart
ment attempted to revoke the license, but
was prevented by an Injunction from the
federal court. Van B. Laly. the slate
agent, brought ault against Auditor Searle
for $5,000 for ditmpges done the com
pany by reason of his position. Thla ault
was recently dismissed by Iady. as
was the Injunction suit. Tn discussing the
arrest of the officers of the company Audi
tor Bearle said:
"The Insurance department objected to
the company giving a one-third reduction
of the amount of the premium which was
charged back against the policy, while
those policies Iwued prior to last year had
an Interest rate on deferred payments that
would eat up the dividends earned. The
company agreed to quit taking Interest
bearing notes for those premiums. The de
partment then Issued a conditional license
that we were to make an examination of
She affairs of the company to verify the
statement filed, as we wore not fully satis
fied that the actual conditions would bear
out the figures In the statement. Before
the department could get around to make
the examlnaion the officials went into the
federal court and secured an Injunction to
restrain us from Interfering with the com
pany or Its agents. We were unable to get
a hearing during that license year and did
not make an examination because we were
restrained from so doing. The company
has filed no report of Its business for 1906
and has not applied for a license, and none
haa been Issued for It to do business for
the year 1906."
Keith Coanty Prospering.
State Auditor Hearle returned this morn
ing from Keith county, where he has been
for a few days looking after personal mat
ters. "Keith county Is covered by about eicht
Inches of snow," said Mr. Searle, "and
everything Is doing well In the crop line. In
fact t found that during the last few
months land which sold for $3 an acre has
Increased to $5, and within a. year It will be
selling for $10 an acre, and hard to get at
that. We have had good crops lately and
last year the wheat run from twenty to
nfty-two bushels an acre and corn from
ftty to sixty bushels."
. Klawitter Gets Xew Trial.
Paul Klawitter, who was sentenced to the
penitentiary from Pierce county on a
charge of criminal assault preferred by a
girl of 11 years, will get another run for
his money, as the supreme court this morn
lng, overruled the decision of the tower
court and granted the defendant a new
trial. In his syllabus Judge Letton, who
wiote the opinion, aald:
"The -rule Is established In this state
that tn caana of criminal aasault, unless
the testimony of the prosecutrix Is cor
roborated on material points, where the
accused testifies as a witness on his own
behalf and denies the charge, her testi
mony alone Is not sufficient to warrant a

The contract entered Into by Christopher
B. E. Btroemer and Joslah A. Van Orsdel
whereby the latter agreed to secure a re
duction In the price of lands In the old
Otoe Indian reservation which had been
bought from the government by Streamer
has for a second time been held to . be
valid by the supreme court.
Van Orsdel was appointed the agent of
the plaintiff In error to collect evidence
a to the value of the lands In question
and to file the same with the secretary of
the Interior with the object of getting a
rebate on the purchase price. Stroemer
held that .the contract was Invalid becauee
it was against publlo policy and was In
the nature of employing a lobbyist to
brine about legislation. This the court
held la not true, but that Van Orsdel was
employed merely as an agent to collect
evidence and file the' same with the proper
authorities. The seoretary of the Interior
himself, the court said, suggested the

do with that part r.f the work.
C ataaaay Mast Pay for Delay.
Charles Nelson, by virtue of a derision
rendered by the supreme court today, will
receive the sum of n.70 front the l"nlo:i
Psclftc Railroad company for damages sus
tained because the company delayed a car
load of cattle which Nelson was" shipping
over Its lines from South Omaha to Calli
way. Nelson got his cattle Into Kearney
on Saturday, after the train had left for
Callaway, so he had to keep them yarded
there until Monday. On that day" his cat
tle were loaded and the conductor refus-.M
to haul them out because Nelson did rmt
have a shipping bill. This was In the
hands of the yardmaster and he could not
be found. Consequently the cattle wero
again unloaded and remained In the yards
until Tuesday afternoon. The court held
the delay wns unnecessary and It did nit
matter which of the company's employ?
was responsible, the yardmaster or the

The supreme court has reversed the de
cision of the Boone county district court,
which was that John P. O'Neill and B. A.
Baldwin, druggists, be lined 1200 for hav
ing liquor in their possession for the pur
poso of selling the same unlawfully. The
evidence, the court said, showod that a
couple of barrels of, wine had been shipped
to them. The drayman at Albion had
taken the liquor and put It In the ware
house owned by the two men and the next
day had taken a bill to the druggists. The
latter objected to paying the same and the
liquor was taken back to the railroad com
pany. After It had been turned back to the
company the complaints were filed against
the men and the liquor waseeled. I'nder
the circumstances the ccHirt holds the pre
sumption could not be that the men had
bought the liquor to sell unlawfully.

WAKEFIELD, Neb., March 8. (Special.)
Strong evidence developed here today
which indicates that the great amount of
horse thieving which has been going on
hereabouts during the lost year has been
wholly or in part the work of local par
ties. It Is believed that the local young
men mixed up in the cases have kept watch
of the various barns about the country
and that when opportunity arrived they
have taken the horses which they wanted.
Then, It is believed, they have driven out
of the vicinity as fast as possible to some
unknown point where they have met the

the horses out into the "-prairies of the

WORD u' PRAISE WELL MERITED
BV A WELL KNOWN ARTICLE.
much haa been written by the
standard medtcial authorities, of all the
several schools of practice, in praise
of too native, or American, medicinal
plants which enter into the oo m posi
tion o(. Dr. Tierce's (Itilden Medical Dis
covefy, that in attempting to quote
from the varioug worts 'on Materia
Mediea one hardly knows where to
commence, since tney are so volumin
ous that only the briefest and most im
perfect reference can be presented in a
short article- like this.
Briefly then let in say that the
"Golden Medical Discovery" was
named from the sturdy little plant
Golden Seal, the root of which enters
largely into its composition. Boeides
this most valuable ingredient, it con
tains clyceric extracts of Stone root.
Queen s "root, Black Chorrybark, Blood
root and Mandrake root.
Finley Ellingwood, M. D., an emin
ent practitioner of Chicago and Profes
sor of Materia Mcdica in the Bennett
Medical College of that citv, in his
recently published work on Therapeu
tics, saya of Golden Seal root: " It is
the most natural of stimulants to the
normal functions of digestion. Its in
fluence upon the raucous surfaces ren
ders it .most important in catarrhal
gastritis (inflammation of stomach) and
gastric (stomach) ulceration."
Many other authorities as well as Dr.
Ellingwood extol the Hydrastis (Golden
Seal), as a remedy for catarrhal dis
eases of the nasal passages, stomach,
bronchia, gall duct, kidneys, intestines
and bladder. Among these, we may
mention Prof. John King, M. D., author
of the American Dispensatory; Prof.
J. M. Scudder, M. D.. in his " Specific
Medication"; Dr. Hale of the Hahne
mann Med. College of Chicago; Grover
Coe, M. D., of New York, in his "Or-
?;anic Medicines," Dr. Bartholow of Jef
erson Med. College and scores of other
leading medical writers and teachers.
All the foregoing eminent authorities
extol the curative virtues of Golden
Seal in cases of stomach, liver and in
testinal weakness, torpor and ulceration
of bowels. Dr. Ellingwood recommends
it most highly, n In those eases of atonic
dyspepsia when the entire apparatus,
Including the liver, is stagnant and
inoperative." He clso extols it most
highly in the manv weaknesses and de
rangements peculiar to women and
says, " It is a moet important remedy in
many disorders of the womb." Golden
Eeal root (Hydrastis), is an important
ingredient of'Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription for weak, nervous, "rundown"
But to return to the "Golden Medical
Discovery " it may be said that its cur
ative properties are not wholly depend
ent upon Golden Seal, valuable as it is,
as other equally potant ingredients add
f;reatly to it value and in fact are not
ess important than the Hydrastis, or
In all bronchial, throat, lung and
kindred ailment, Stone root, Black
Cherry bark, Queen's root and Blood
root, each plays as important a part
in effecting the phenominal cures of
"Golden Medical Discovery" as does
Golden Seal. All these ingredients
have the endorsement of prominent
practitioners of all schools of medicine
tor the cure of diseases of the bronchia,
'Hroat and longs.

root, Black Cherry bark and Bloodroot,
all articles extolled by leading practi

best of cough medicines, are made es
pecially valuable when 'combined with
chemically pure glycerine which greatly
enhances the curative action of all these
ingredients in all bronchial, throat and
lung affections, severe coughs and kin-
Who can doubt the efficacy of such a
compound, when scientifically made
up, as in Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery? Who can doubt that it is ni
most effective remedy for the several
disease for which ile ingredients are so
highly recommended by the formost
writers on Materia Mt'Iicat
It is in the cure of the more chronic
or lingering, persistent, and obstinate
cases of bronchial, laryngial and lung
affections, attended by hoarseness ana
severe cough,, which if neglected or
badly treated wonld generally have ran
into conscmption, that "Golden Med

praise from all who have observed its
marvelous control over these and kin

equally good in all Catarrhal affections
