Holcomh. in his mpsnage to the legislature
In 199, went on record favoring an elective
railway communion and he also said un
der the maximum freight rate law the re

the State Bourd of Traniorttion was
charged with the. enforcement of the law,
which at that time was not constitutional.
A portion of that opinion. Is as follows:
And It Is hereby declared, adjudged and

pugnant to the constitution: of th United
States, fornsmuch as by the provisions of
Slid act the said defendant railroad com

InlTeralty Rrirata Meet.
The university repents will meet to
morrow to receive the report of the finance
committee and to fix up their recommen
dations to the state legislature. To
night, with the exception of Fred Abbott,
all the membera had reached town, e.n.1
these held an Informal meeting at the
Lincoln hotel. It Is understood the re
gents will not ask for an appropriation
for any new buildings, but will ask that
additions be made to the library building,
the mechanical arts building and the
women's building at the state farm.
An appropriation was made for the erec
tion of this building by the last legis
lature, but according to the notion of
the rcgenta the building, which is now
under course of construction, will be too
small and -more money la needed. The
regents will also, so it Is understood, ask
for more money for aalariea, making the
total appropriation requeated keep pace
with the increase In the atate assessment
The State Board of Agriculture will
ask the regents to erect a university
building, at the state fair grounds for

probability will be turned down.
Legal Department Stamped.
Deputy County Attorney Foster of Doug

range the constitutional amendment propo

Foster asks what can be done and then
says it Is Impossible to put "for" and
"against" side by side on the machine.
Inasmuch as the Iceal dejmrtment of
Douglas county has the machine before
it and Is supposed to have some legal
knowledge regarding the election law. the
state legal department is at a loss to know
what to answer, for if the problem cannot
be solved In Douglas county, it Is hard
for the attorneys here to fliruro It out.

Fusion Forced In anndera.
WAHOO. Neb., Oct. 12. (Special.!
With the assistance of Democratic State
Chairman Allen. Dr. P. L. Hall and Kdgar
Howard, the difficulties between the dem
ocrats and populists were fixed up Sat
urday. The populists held their conven
tion early in September and nominated
J; L. Sundean for the legislature and en
dorsed Trenmor Cone for atate senator.
Cone was nominated by the populists at
the senatorial convention In Papilllon,
but the democrats nominated Judge Pat
rick. At the democratic county conven
tion last week Frank Vopalcnsky and
Emll Helslng were nominated for the leg
islature and the populists were turned
down hard. The populists retaliated the
next day by their central commtttea,
meeting and putting up a full ticket as
followa: For the legislature, J. L. Sun
dean and Frank, and John Barry
for county attorney. Saturday the demo
cratic central committee met and T. Cone,
I the populist candidate for senator, with
drew and was placed on the ticket for
representative, Helslng having withdrawn.
The other candidates withdrew and com
plete fusion was forced by the outside
manipulators. Harmony does not prevail
on either side and considerable scratching
of the ticket from both populists and
democrata la expected. The turning down
of Sundean, the populist nominee for the
legislature, was a bitter defeat for the
populists of Saunders county.
Dead Man I nldenllfled.

Coroner Reneker was called to Dawpon
last Saturday afternoon to hold an inquest
on the body of a man found alongside the
Burlington tracks by the Dawson section
gang while they were going to their work
Saturday morning. The body was found
about one-half mile west of the station.
The. deceased was a man about 50 years
old, smooth shaven, blue eyes, 'five feet
five lnche? tall and weighed about 150
pounds. He was dressed In blue overalls,
size 33x32, lace tan boots, slse 8, a black
shirt with white stripes, blue and white
checked Juniper and a Prince Henry black
felt hat, size 7. He had a white silk
handkerchief wrapped around his let

which they receive and the efforts which they make, comes the greater part of that
healthful development which is so essential to their happinses whin grown. When
a laxative Is needed the remedy which is riven to them to cleanse and aweeten and
strengthen the internal organs on which it acts, should be such as physicians would
' sanction, because its component parts are known to be wholesome and the remedy
itself free from every objectionable quality. The one remedy which physicians and
parents, well-informed, approve and recommend and which the little ones enjoy,
because of its pleasant flavor, its gentle action and its beneficial effects' is Syrup
of Figs-and for the same reason it is the only laxative which should be used by
. fathers and mothers.
Syrup of Figs is the only remedy which acts gently, pleasantly and naturally
without griping, irritating, or nauseating and which cleanses the system effectually,
without producing that constipated habit which results from the use of the old
time cathartics and modern imitations, and against which the children should be so
carefully guarded. If you would have them grow to manhood and Womanhood,
strong, healthy and happy, do not give them medicines, when medicines are not
needed, and when nature needs assistance in the way of a laxative, give them only
the simple, pleasant and gentle Syrup of Figs.
. Its quality is due not only to the excellence of the combination of the laxative
principles of plants with pleasant aromatic syrups and juices, but also to our
original method of manufacture and as you value the health of the little ones, do
not accept any of the substitutes which unscrupulous dealers sometimes offer, to
increase their profits. Flease to remember, the full name of the Company

Corn husking has started in Richardson

crops and the best grade of corn husked
here for a long time. The farmer are
having a great deal of trouble to secure
help to .husk the crop and are adver
tising for men, offering 3 cents a bushel and
board, and cannot get men at that price,
as all the men who want to work are
picking or barreling apples. The apple
crop in thia county haa been a big item
to the farmers, as it has brought a good
many thousand dollars here that would not
have come if it had not been for the big
apple crop. There has been no wasle to
the apples this year, aa the vinegar fac
tory in Falls City has taken all the apples
the packers refused and the farmers from
a distance of twenty miles have brought
their cull and windfall apples to the vine
gar factorjt in Falla City. Taking every
thing Into consideration, this will be one
of the most prosperous years Richardson
