,From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Oct. 20. (Special.) Governor
Mickey Intends to Inaugurate a reform In
the manner of the treatment of ex-convlets
at the handj of the police, especially In
Lincoln. It has been the custom when a
prisoner gets out of the penitentiary for
the police here to arrest him as soon as
he Rets up In town and keep hint In Jail
a clay or two and then release lilm when
lie agrees to leave town. This mornlitK
an ex-convlet named Alberts, who was re
leased yesterday and who was urrested
J when he stepped from the motor car and
! kept in Jail over night, called upon the
governor for protection. "
j 'l called up the chief of police," said
the gpvernor, "and got very llttlo satis
faction. He said the man had been ar
rested with a convict named Hayes who
was released at the same time and that
he was released from Jail this morning
while Hayes was kept in there. The police
had no right to arrest this man. It was
an outrage that he was arrested. The
chief of police told me he was put In Jail
to protect the citizen of Lincoln. When
that prisoner was released from prison
he had the right to protection under out
laws and It Is the duty of the people, of
every citizen, to help that convict to sonic
thing better. Alberts told me the police
said they would release hlni If he would
go to Omaha. No one has a right to run
' thut man out of Lincoln as long as he doe
! not violate the law. He had settled his
I Hrnr with the Hlnlp He hnri done Yvrona
and paid the penalty. So far as the mute
Is concerned his account Is balanced. NoWj
If he Is made to go to Omaha the police
there will arrest him. If he Is driven out
of Omaha lie will bo arrested elsewhere.
What chance has lie to become a law
abiding cltlz'.-n? The Excise board of Lin
coln should take some action In matters
of' this kind and prevent the urrcst of
these cx-convlcts on suspicion."
Chief Cooper Is Tarl.
Late this afternoon Governor Mickey and
Dr. Martin called at the police statloa
to express his opinion to Chief Cooper 01
the latter's'way of doing business for ar
resting Alberts after he had left the state
j house. The two men warmed up as the
conversation progressed and the governor
spoke his opinion of Cooper allowing the
women to sell beer in the reservation dur
ing the state fair. The chief retorted:
"You'd better get after your own police
board In Omaha and South Omaha. You
made the rounds of those reservations
and I haven't heard of anything dropping.
You have authority over the police, of thosi
cities, but you have none here. When you
correct the evils of your own board It will
be time enough to get busy here."
The two convicts were later released upon
their promising to leave town.
Amendment to Revenue Law.
Secretary Bennett of the Slate Board of
Assessment is going to recommend to the
state legislature a change In the secttoa
of the revenue law providing the manner
in which grain elevators arc assessed. Un
der the terms of the section a system cf
double taxation could be worked, provid
ing the amount of grain on hand April
1 la taken as the amount of the assessment.
Mr. Bennett has arbitrarily assessed grain
men on tha average amount of capital
Invested during the year and this has been
upheld by the supreme court. Wit he Is
' not satisfied with- that arrangement and
1 will work nut s rww nljiii. Rv derillctinff
the amount of grain on hand April 1, from
the amount of capital Invested, he has fol
lowed the spirit of the law, but before
the legislature meets he expects to have
i another pla.n worked out.

"I had an eruption appear on my

I at first thought it waa prickly heat.
But soon scales or crusts formed where
the breaking out was. Instead of going
to a physician, 1 purchuoed a complete
treatment of the Cuticura Remedies, in
which I had great faith, and all waa
satisfactory. A year or two later tha
eruption appealed again, only a little
lower; but bcforM it had time to spread
I procured another supply of the Cuti

until the cure was complete. It is now
five years since the last attack, and
have not seen any signs of a return. I

A letter waa received In Lincoln this j

who not i,ian) ears ego as a member of ,
A. u. suaueiimrgcr s congressional com-

well and have been acquainted with hlni

years, and he is the biggest political
fakir In Nebranka."
Mr. Shallenberger's speech delivered at
the Oliver theater last night has occa- j
stoned considerable comment In Lincoln
today and It Is the opinion of those who
. , ., , . , ., .
heard lilin. If he is delivering the same i
speech all over the state, ho Is certainly
conducting a campaign of misrepresenta
tion. One who Is familiar with the sub
Jects discussed by the demo-pop candidate
"Mr. Shallenberger Is cither not familiar
with the aubjeot he Is discussing or he Is
deliberately misrepresenting th? facts. In
quoting the I'nlted Slates supreme court
opinion on- the maximum freight rate law
he did not loll that the supremo court of
the state had declared unconstitutional the

State Board of Transportation, which the !
United States supreme court hld was the I
proper body to enforce that law.
"He said the floating debt of the state
Is Increasing, when he knows, or should
know, it is being decreased, and Just re
cently State Treasurer Mortensen issued an
offlrial statement showing how much it had
been decreased. He argued at length that
the state needed no new laws, which is in
direct conflict with the democratic plat
form. He denounced the Btate Board of
Assessment for the assessment of the
property of the state, but he passed over
the increase made by republican boards. In
the assessment of railroad property. He
told good stories and Ills speech was pleas

He then made the startling statement that
according to the losses compiled by the
tire department the Insurance companies
have lost In Lincoln 15 per cent per annum
for the last four years. The total premiums
paid during those years amounted to iot'iO.iUo.
while the lire losses amounted to I10,2.
This added to the 40 per cent to pay ex
penses of doing the business occasioned the
loss. Mayor Brown explained the loss by

at which, no matter how eBMcnt, the Are

Brown claimed a general Insurance ag w

The Most Vivid Picture
of Lincoln ever Written
Carl Schurz, almost the only American who had the
opportunity of seeing the entire Civil War from the
inside, had the ability to write it as it should be
written. The second part of his Reminiscences,
Magazine for November
deals with the epochal events in American history,
culminating in that magnificent description of Lincoln
which has not been equaled by any writer, not even
John Hay. '
Schurz saw Lincoln as he was in his relation
to the government, to the war and to his friends.
He writes without fear or favor. He saw the Battle
. of Gettysburg from a point of vantage and has con
tributed the greatest description of this battle that
has yet been written.
This history, which is now being printed in
McClure's Magazine, will be read in the school
books of future generations. Begin your subscription
to McClure's Magazine with this great November
number, so as to learn the new light which Carl
Schurz throws upon such names as Douglas, Lincoln,
Seward, Grant, Stanton, Sherman.
