CAR SHORTAGE NOT SERIOUS
Scarcity Eiiata, bat Bailroad Men
Say They Are Able to Fill
Moat Ordera. '
Most ot the rwiroada are short df cart
at prerent, although train has not started
to move, but the situation Is not aerlous
and tho railroads arc able to till most
orders. Many complaint are heard from
the scarcity of cars.
An Interesting case came to notice from
Harrison, Nob., ono of the most western
towns In the etuto, on the Northwestern
road. A petition was prepared and sent
to Governor Mickey, signed by the resi
dents of Harrison, saying the railroad re
fused to furnlah cars for coal for the town.
Tho railroads took exception to the state
' monts In tho petition and after sifting the
mutter down, found there had been, for a
long time, plenty of cars in that section
of tho country and further Investigation
from tho records of tho superintendent and
the mines, which are on the line wort.
ahowed no order had heen placed by the
uValer for coal, the only ordur which was
received being from a private individual
and that was filled lmmedlutoly. The
dealer has txiou deceiving tho wholo town
Oil tho pretext That he could not get tho
Conitldorahle coal has been found along
the Northwestern lines In Wyoming and
while no great mine has been developed
whluli would pay to run railroad tracks to,
ooal has been taken out In abundance.
Many of the ranchers get all the coal they
want by simply going Into their fields and
loading It into their wagons. Considerable
coal is being hauled to the railroad by
means of. traction engines, which haul sev
eral large wagons filled with coal.
No Oplom ta Chamberlain's Coach
There Is not a particle of opium or other
narcotic In Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
and never has been since It was first offered
to the public. It Is as safe a medicine for a
child as for an adult. This remedy Is fa
mous for its cures of colds and croup, and
can always be depended upon.
Better be careful than sorry. Consult

The condition of C. E. liodon of Sterling,
a federal court Juror, was much Improved
Frldny morning and the trial of the catile
men gives promise of proceeding without
Interruption. There exists, however, a teil
ous question ns to the effect Juror BooVn's
Illness. nilRht hnvc In the event he might
later prove unable to continue with the
trlnl. Well Informed lawyers on constitu
tional law hold that a trial cannot proceed
In a federal court without twelve Jurors,
even though counsel might iagree to pro
eeo,J with eleven Jurors.
The proceeding of Friday morning were
of the usual formal character, with J. C.
Pettyjohn still on the atand. and Mated
exclusively to tho Identification of tiling
papers and the record of them on the Val
entine lHnd offlee books. The examination
of Mr. l'ettyjahn was eonrluded st noon
and covered an Inquiry Irto thirty-eight
entries, with thctr accompanying paners.
This makes thus far. Including the nine
books of the Valentino land offlee, 133 ex
hibits numbered from 1 to 153 consecutively,
us merely a stnrter for the trial.
Mr. Tettyjohn will not be recalled by the
government unless to Identify filing papers
that may have been overlooked by the I
government's attorneys. The cross-examination
of Mr. Pettyjohn began at 1:43. p.
Doable Dismissal Recalled.
Tho appearance of J. C. Pettyjohn, for
mer register at the Valentine land office,
recalls the fact that he and Receiver A.
1j. Towlo were relieved from their posi
tions because of the ugltatlan of the land
luestlon in 1905 in the Valentine district.
Tho offico -was closed upon the acceptance
of the resignations of Pettyjohn and
Towle and1 remained closed for three
months, when Luke M. Bates was ap
pointed registrar early In tho present year.
Practically all of the alleged Illegal and
fraudulent filings embraced In the thirty-
eight entries thus far examined wrt mado
during the administration of Pettyjohn and
Towlc. and while these officers are not
charged with complicity or collusion In
any , of the fradudulent transactions, the
fact that tho alleged fraudulent filings
had been made under their administration
of the office was deemed sufficient reason to
demand their resignations.
T. L. Heath, United States commissioner,
took tho witness stand Friday afternoon,
to be followed by A. L. Towle.
To Avoid Ware Case Trap.
It Is the apparent purpose of the govern- I
mcnt to avoid tho narrow margin of falling j
lpto a trap, as during the Ware trial, to have
all of these filings come within the statute
of limitations, so that the question of statu
tory limit may not be Included In the ob
jections should (he case go against the
defendants. Regardlofs of the merits of the
case pro or con, the fact Is apparent that
the government has Its case well In hand,
and has left nothing undone in the matter
of technical and general evidence to suppoit
; On the other hand the defense, as has
been shown, has been equally diligent In
procuring refuting testimony and In the
preparation of its case. Possibly no case
has . been brought to trial In the federal
courts anywhere with more accurate pre
liminary preparation. It Is a battle royal
In fact and Is attracting the attention of
eminent lawyers not alone from Nebraska
but throughout tho entire cattle country.
Scarcely any decision In land matters that
la on record exists but what has been
brought in reference and the fight will be
point by point . and the trial will ge on
record as a precedent for all future land

of this great serial in the December editorial.
MYRA KELLY'S " Little Bo-Peep " brings the
Russian Jew child before you as you never

human interest. And if Mary Stewart Cutting's

the greatest Lincoln Steffens ever wrote.
