LINCOLN. April 22. (Special.) Notwith
standing the howl of the railroads In Ne
braska about being hampered by legisla
tlon, the cross earnings of the Burlington,
according to the report filed today with
L the State Hoard of Assessment, shows an
Increase In the last year over the previous
year of almost 13,000,000 and the net earn
ings are Increased almost The
Burlington managed to eke out only fit.'
196,368.47 during the last year, which, after
deducting the operating expenses, left this
road only l8.4M.gT4.10 to the good. This
means that the road, after paying all ex
penses, including the taxes, carried out of
Nebraska for every mile of road It tins
In this state, main line and branches. the
um of 13,061. and It has 2.6U.23 miles. In
the report the net earnings are considerably
mailer than Is set forth In the above fig
ures, because the company did a little Jug
gling by Including in Its taxes paid In
1907 the sum of S382.M0.44, but as this sum
represents the taxes due during the last
three years when It refused to pay tip
like other taxpayers, the board will not
consider It as chalked up against the earn
ings of this year. One thing the road did
not do this year, and that la it did not
deduct an arbitrary of 4-10 of 1 mill al
lowed lines west of the river. The board.
It is understood, last year refused to take
this Into consideration and It is left out
of ths return this year. The amount de
ducted last year amounted to $1,176,662.75.
This left nt earnings last year of $2,068,
compared with a net earning of 23,061 per
mile this year. The following Is a com

Opinion Law Regarding; Reserves
Rhonld Bo Amended.
FREMONT. Neb.. April 22. Special Tele
gram.) At the bankers' meeting this after
noon the time was occupied by discussions
on timely topics. The question as to
whether the state laws in referenoe to
reserves should be amended was consid
ered and It was the opinion that something
should be done. F. J. Hart of Qresham,
chairman of the committee on banks and
banking at the last session of the legis
lature, had for his topic "Deposit." He
cited a large array of figures showing
that a guarantee fund of one-twelfth of
1 per cent would have paid the loss on the
278 national bank failures during the last
forty years. He favored an accumulation
of a guarantee fund of one-tenth of 1 per
cent, which, he believed, to be sufficient
to prevent panics.
Secretary E. Royse of the banking board
urged the necessity of keeping the legal
reserve well up, especially duilng the next
two yearn.
This evening a banquet was given to the
visitors at which Chancellor Andrews was
the principal speaker.

dence by Atorney
for State.
GRAND ISLAND. April 22.- Special. )
Both sides In the case of the state against
John Hamlin for the murder of Rachel
Engle were ready to hold a session today.
Arbor day, but It was agreed that neither
had any rights to waive, and no session
was held, court adjourning to Tuesday
morning at 11 o'clock. The state has so
far put on only three witnesses, two of
whom were Mr. and Mrs. Kent, the step
father and mother of the girl. The third
was Miss Lillian Dunham, who was walk
ing down town with Miss Engle on the
night she was shot, but who did not see
the shooting nor the man who did It, hav
ing been at the moment walking behind
Miss Engle and the shot coming from their
rear and side.
Mr. Kent's testimony was substantially
the same as that given at the coroner's
Inquest. It related the facts of Hamlin
having been his employe, a boarder at his
home, a man of unobjectionable behavior
in every respect previous to the shooting;
Lof his notification on the night of August
I of his stepdaughter being sick, the treat
ment given her and the care and her sub
sequent death on January 14.
Mrs. Kent, the mother of the girl, testi
fied on direct examination that the best of
care was given the daughter during her
long confinement to bed after the shooting.
After the removal of Rnchel Engle from
the hospital to their home a trained nurse
was secured, Mrs. Kent having the other
household duties to look after. This nurse
was almost continually In the home, board
ing there. The unfortunate girl needed
much attention, for the reason that she
was paralyzed from the waist line down,
the line at which the bullet entered, and
none of the organs below the point per
forming their natural functions without
artificial aid. Every attention possible,
however, was given her.
Cross Examination.
Attorney Prince, for the state, here
asked for the production of the dress worn
by the dead girl on the night of the shoot
ing, and it was sent for, the cross-examination
proceeding with the understanding
that the dress could be later produced.
On the cross-examination counsel for
Hamlin made Its first serious attempt to
establish Its line of defense. Mrs. Kent
was asked If upon one other occasion, while
endeavoring to aid the girl, Mrs. Kent had
not broken a catheter during the process
of Its Insertion. She stated that she had
and had .Immediately Informed the doctor
over the 'phone. Attorney Thompson went
Into a lengthy and explicit examination of
the position of the girl and the manner in
which the glass tube about eight Inches In
length was broken. Mrs. Kent declared
that while she was supporting the girl with
one hand and arm and reaching for a ves
sel wlth another there was an Involuntary
Jerking of the limbs, resulting In the break
ing of the tube.
"As a matter of fact, don't you know
that you b.-oke the tube?" finally inquired
Mr. Thompson.
Clothlna- In Evidence.
"I did not." Indignantly replied the wit
ness. Attorney Thompson explained to the wit
ness that while some of his questions
might to her sound Impertinent, they were
not intended In that way. Later the wit
ness testified that the daughter, realizing
the fact that the tube had been broken,
said to her mother that she could not help
It that there had been an Involuntary
movement of the body.
On redirect examination the clothing worn
by the unfortunate girl was Introduced.
As the mother unwrapped the package, a
white shirt waist, showing the rent of the
bullet, a corset cover and a pink striped
skirt, she broke down and wept bitterly.
i The articles of apparel were the state's
first exhibit. Mrs. Kent was thereupon ex
cused from the witness stand.
All the witnesses are excluded from the
court room until they shall have testified.
The court room contains a large number
of spectators at each session.
A sister of Hamlin and her husband are
here from Rock county attending the trial.

that had him In custody the correct names
of the officers and non-commlsstonad offi

V i
:j Quo of the Important Duties cf Phy
is to learn as to the relative standing and reliability of the leading manufactur
ers of medicinal agents, as the most eminent physicians are the most careful as to
the uniform quality and perfect purity of remedies prescribed by them, and it Is well
known to physicians and the Well-Informed generally that the California Fir Symp
Co., by reason of its correct methods and perfect equipment and the ethical character of
its product has attained to the high standing in scientific and commercial circles which
is accorded to successful and reliable houses only, and, therefore, that the name of the
Company has become a guarantee of the excellence of its remedy.
appeal to the Well-Informed in every walk of life and are essential to permanent suc
cess and creditable standing, therefore we wish to call the attention of all who would
enjoy good health, with its blessings, to the fact that it involves the question of right
living with all the term implies. With proper knowledge of what is best each hour
of recreation, of enjoyment, of contemplation and of effort may be made to contribute
to that end and the use of medicines dispensed with generally to great advantage, but
as in many instances a simple, wholesome remedy may be invaluable if taken at the
proper time, the California Fig Syrup Co. feels that it is alike important to present
truthfully the subject and to supply the one perfect laxative remedy which has won
the appoval of physicians and the world-wide acceptance of the Well-Informed because
of the excellence of the combination, known to all, and the original method of manufac
ture, which is known to the California Fig Syrup Co. only.
This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of Figs and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well-Informed of the world to be the best of natural
laxatives, we have adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtless it will always be
called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs and to get its beneficial effects always
note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co.
plainly printed on the front of every package, whether you simply call for Syrup of
Figs or by the full name Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna as Syrup of Figs and
Elixir of Senna is the one laxative remedy manufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co. and the same heretofore known by the name Syrup of Figs which has given
satisfaction to millions. The genuine is for sale by all leading druggists throughout
the United States in original packages of one size only, the regular price of which
is fifty cents per bottle.

Ross Hammond Rejoices We are pleased
to report that the rear entrance to women's
dresses is to be abolished and that hence
forth they are to be like good old Orlmes'
coat, "all buttoned down before." The
fixers of fashions have decreed It and the
edicts of these autocrats are obeyed im
plicitly. Gowns, shirt waists, lace waists
and tight-fitting Jackets are going to face
about and this Is glorious news for th
fumbling and long-suffering husband, who
has played the role of ladles' maid when
he wanted to be reading the Thaw trial or
performing some other function of the
higher civilisation. The husband who has
Jabbed at those little loops up and down

up without calling for help or inciting any
domestic riots. The buttoned-up front
fashion can't make the trip over from

always a dead Indian, but a drunken Indian
comes a long way from being a good In
dian, or, at least, that Is ths opinion
formed by many South Sioux City people
this week. The Burlington trains coming
up from the reservation brough Indians in
crowds of about fifty, who make tracks
for Sioux City, where they take on board
firewater enough to put them In a seml
reaponslhle condition, when they return to
South Sioux City with the Intention of
taking the train home. As their condition

vicinity of the Burlington depot, where In

An old squaw was left to enjoy her drunken
slumber on the soft growth of new green
grass beside the walk, while the snow
worked busily for several hours to furnish

towns of Walthlll and Winnebago, down
on the reservation, the problem of caring
for the drunken Indians, each of them
carrying a "llttlo brown Jug" full of "heap
hot firewater," Is getting to be a serious
one. South Sioux City Record.
Stringency In Paris Cnniri Decline

SAN FRANCISCO. Cal., April 2J Kore
klyo Takahaahl, the Japanese financier,
Who has Just completed his mission of
floating loans aggregating 1110,000,000 in
London and Parts 10 redeem the war bonds
of Japan; arrived In San- Francisco on his
way home yesterday.
Talking of his work In London and Paris
last night, Takahanshl said:
"The loans floated tibrond are now mostly
held by London bankers, the stringency
of money In Paris being chiefly responsible
for this fact. Japan will pay 6 per cent
for this money, which will be used In re
deeming the 6 per cent bonds Issued dur
ing the war. No difficulty is now encoun
tered by Japan In raising money. Its
credit has been unquestioned since Its
achievements In the war and foreign capi
tal Is dally pouring Into It In increased
"The I'nlted States bought about IGO.OOO.
000 of the war bonds, but has contributed
little or no capital for Investment In Japan
since. The reason for this Is patent. Men
with money In the I'nlted States can get
bigger returns for It here than anywhere
else and do not hsve to go abroad to seek
Investments. Japan will probably attract
very little American capital while the pres
ent reign of prosperity continues In the
United States. Just now it Is getting most
of Its foreign capital from England and
