' While a number of petitions have beenj

the first olty officials to express themselves
oh the measure; Funk of Phelps this morn
ing Introduced the following:
Be It resolved. That we, the mayor and
council of the city of Holdrege, Neb.,
hereby memorialise the state legislature
in opposition to the so-called county option
bills Introduced 1 therein, and that In sup
port or aucn opposition we urge tne rouow
f. That such bills, while in respect to a
matter of great political Importance and
division, are not the reflection of any ma
jority sentiment expressed n the last elec
tion; that they were not made an open or
legitimate lnsue in' the state campaign, and
that to enact the aame Into law at thla time
Is. not only to betray an honest trust and
confidence reposed by thousands of Voters
throughout the state, but to give effect to
the dishonest and dishonorable methods of
designing or unscrupulous ' politicians and
i. That the manifest purpose of such bills
Is to give unfair advantage to one division
of our citlsena over another, and not an
honest reform of the present liquor laws
of the state, ane that the inevitable result
of enactment would be to weaken and
Inpalr such laws, by making them less
effective and more difficult of enforcement,
by separating political power from official,
and by developing the Issue of license upon
a suffrage unresponsive and alien to the
locality and Interests Involved.
S. That said bills are in derogation of the
principles of home rule and municipal au
tonomy, and of the Just, salutary and
necessary rights, powers and duties of the
Cities, towns and villages of the state,

or any other political subdivisions thereof,

order, peace and health, Uo effect sanita

the fact the senate was in sneuton did not
mak. any difference. ' King of Pvlk tn-
Blnted the action was Illegal and no such

Farmer John McKesson of Lancaster read

had no power to bar foreign companies
from appealing to the federal court, but
McKesson secured a volume of supreme

during the afternoon session. The others
probably will be presented tomorrow when

fellow, Mrs. Thaw continued at length the
narration of her story. She told of how
she came back from Europe a month ahead
of Thaw. During that month friends pf
Stanford vhlte had told her many stories
about' the young Pittsburg millionaire and
when he returned to America ahe refused
to see lm except In tha presence of a
third person.. , .
"He looked very sad." she said, "and
told me they had been making a fool of me.
He said he understood why it was done. I

the stories and I heard their reputations
were so bad that I Anally told Mr. Thaw
I did not believe the stories. He said:
'Tou know I have never lied to you' and
h never has." '

by tbe bed and kissed my band and looked
at me for a moment and went out.
