For Those
Who Hung On
During the last year's agitation of life insurance,
a good many people surrendered their policies or
allowed them to lapse. Whether this was the result
of panic induced by sensational attacks in the press, or the
work of unscrupulous agents who sought commission for
themselves in possible transfer of policies, the effect was
most disastrous to such policy holders and entailed an
r irreparable loss upon many deserving beneficiaries.
The Mutual
Life Insurance
V su
bclones to all of its policy holders.
Whenever any of these fall out of the
ranks, what they leave benefits those who stay in. The
reserves sacrificed by withdrawing members in 1906 and
now inuring to the benefit of persistent policy holders,
amount to over $3,000,000. Strong proof is this that
it pays to stay in, and strong proot likewise tnat it
pays to get in the Mutual Life, the staunchest life
insurance company in the world.

CRAWFORD, Neb.. July 22. Bpeclal.)
Crawford is today one of the mutt moral
and orderly cities In the state. The old
city administration had been trying to
colonize the houses of ill-repute In an out'

of citizens to secure an available site.

coi.rt. When the county attorney returned
from a brief sojourn In Lincoln a few days
ago, ho found matters In a ferment. The
mayor had caused the arrest of the pro
prietors of a couple of houses in one of
the most unobjeetlonnblo of the districts
heretofore occupied y them, and these
women hired nn attorney and cause 1 the
arrest of every other proprietress In the
city. The county attorney was met, on his
arrival, with a deluge of complaints the
two women first arrested nllcglng that they
were being persecuted simply because they

Porter closed every house of Ill-repute In
the city, and called upon Sheriff Mote of
Chadron to sec that his directions were
obeyed, which directions that officer obeyed
to the letter, and prooiptly drove nil the
women from the county. This caused tho
owners of some of the houses, which have
become vacnnt and unremunerntlve, to In

Whereupon others Interested In seeing that
this evil be abolished by the city, took ad

attorney was again called upon to Inter

W. D. I.amb Die from Explosion
of Gasoline at Long; Pine.
IXNG PINE, Neb., July 22. (Special.)
With her clothing a mass of flames and
tailing for help, Mrs. W. D. Lamb rushed
from her restaurant In the south part of
town Saturday evening at 4 o'clock, and met
a horrible death from the burns she re
ceived. Mrs. I-ainb had started to fill the
tank for a gasoline lighting apparatus,
which la located in the rear of her building
nnd which furnishes light for her building
and an adjoining business house. The tank
had been pumped full of air and when a
cap on the tank was removed the gas Im
mediately filled the room and was Ignited
by the fire from a large range used In the
kitchen. The woman was carried to the
office of Dr. McKnlght, where everything
possible was done for her relief, but all
J the medical aid that could be procured was
useless and she died several hours later.
Ovad Morgan, an employe of an adjoining
business house, proved himself a hero In
bis efforts to extinguish the flames. Mr.
Morgan had his hands and face badly
burned, but his Injuries are not serious.
Two of the buildings where the explosion
occurred were completely gutted, leaving
only the frames and siding. The property
loss by Are waa not heavy, as the building
was an old one and not of much value.

Kngler and the city council propose to

made a great mistake In beginning their

Presidential Candidacy of W. J. Bryan
to e Launched nt a Dinner Which
is to Be Held After Fall
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. July 22,-(Spoclal.)-That the
railroads Intend to fight In the courts the
collection of their" taxes based on the pres
ent assessment was practically assured
this morning when Bdson Rich, attorney
for the t'nlon Pacific. In requesting that
the stenographer taking down the pro
ceedings be sworn, said:
The board may hereafter be Interested
in the correctness of the record."
This statement, considered with the care
of the railroad officials and attorneys In
securing a record of everything that is
sold and done at the meetings of the board,
and the fact that a mandamus suit Is now
pending In the supreme court to compel
the board to furnish a detailed statement
of how It arrived at Its conclusions re
garding the valuation of railroad property,
makes It almost certain the big corpora
tions are again getting ready to go to the
The, board spent the day listening to
witnesses of the ITnlon Pacific and Bur
lington In corroboration of the tilings each
made several days ago relative to the
value of other property In the state com
pared with tho value of railroad property.
Included In the mass of testimony filed by
the I'nlon Pacific were 724 letters written
by Nebraskans to a man named W. IL
Clare of Joliet. a real estate and Insurance
agent. In answer to Inquiries by him re
garding the value of Nebraska property.
One of the lettera was written by Secre
tary of State Junkln, who said land In his
county, Oosper, was worth S40 an acre for
the best and HO for the poor land. The
assessor valued the land at 111.30 an acre,
one-fifth of which Is the value upon which
the taxes are levied. Another letter was
from Congressman Pollard, who said land
In Cass county was worth $75 an acre. This
land was valued by the assessor at $a0 aa
acre. Several letters were received front
every county In the state, and In most
every Instance the value of the land was
higher than fixed by the assessor. The
letter sent out by Mr. Clare Btated that
he had received many Inquiries from par
ties regarding Nebraska properties, and If
business was stable lots of money would
be Invested In this state.
Tax Commissioner Scrlbner of tho Union
Pacific and Crawford Kennedy of the Bur
lington appeared as witnesses, while Ed
son Rich appeared as attorney for the
Union Pacific and Tax Commissioner
Pollard looked after the Interests of tho
Burlington. Assessor Miller of Lancaster
county was placed on the stand to toll
what he knew of the Doulas and I Lan
caster assessments. He testified that not
withstanding he had placed a fair value
on the property of this county, the county
board had reduced his figures 20 per cent
less than it should have been. In answer
to Questions by Secretary of State Junkln,
he said he had spent only one day there
and had merely looked at the storea and
gone through them. He had not seen an
lnvoere, an Insurance policy or asked
about the dally sales. His knowledge was
based solely on what he saw, mct.urlng
up the floor space In some of tho stores
here. The board will listen to the rail
road men' again In a few days, when more
testimony will be offered. Nothing camo
out today other than what was published
when the attorneys made their statements
to the board some days ago, except the
letters mentioned.
The board decided It has the right to
assess all lnterurban companies, whether
wholly In one county or not, and will
do so.
Lincoln Gets Out of Costa.
The state railway commission will again
begin taking testimony In the case wherein
the city of Lincoln Is trying to force the
Lincoln Traction company to sell six fares
for 26 cents. The hearing has already boen
on for a week. In the meantime the trac
tion company, which has had a suit pend
ing In the federal coirt to enjoin the
enforcement of the six-for-a-quiirter or
dinance, has dismissed the suit In the
ttpulatlon filed the traction cornpany
lawyers and the city attorney say the last
legislature passed an act putting the mat
ter of rates to be charged by street rail
ways under the state railway commission,
repealing by Implication" the ordinance
passed last year by the city council of
Lincoln. Other lawyers see no reason why
the city of Lincoln should appeal to tho
railway commission, or why the commis
sion should take up Its time with such
hearing, when a suit was pending In
federal court over the matter when the
commission was created and when the
law was enacted giving it authority. It is
said had the commission Insisted on the
matter being fought out by the city In
the federal court, where It was when tho
commission was created, the city would
have had toy stand for any costs, while
now If the traction company loses, the
