Pallas, the gateway t the Rosebud binds I
which will b opened to settlement us a
result of the registering which hi Kill on
October 6, la a hunt linn, liuntllns inmmu
nlty full of plans far the future. The
sound of the carpenter's hammer ran be
heard In all directions. Won! cornea that
th grrstcst rush of landsiTkers will he lo
thin point because it Is here that the
drawing; will take place on October 19 and
because of the additional fact that Dnllas
la the only town that i close to the Tilpp
county lands and offers an opportunity to
prospective settlers to examine the country.
The, town is growing In strides and Is
fast becoming a thriving city. Fortunately
tha founders of the town chose an excel
lent townsite with street grades that af
ford drains In every direction. Main
street vu laid out with a width of in) fert
and other streets at ninety feet. Main
street and several cross streets have cement
sidewalks, and the city has a splendid
water works plant and other desirable
features. Only a little over one year old
It haa now a population of more than 1,5)0
and Is rapidly growing.
Another reason why It is anticipated that
the bulk of the crowds will choose Dallas
as their Mecca Is the fact that while reg
istration papers can be made out at the
four affidavit points, namely, Chamberlain
and Presho, 8. D., and O'Neill and Valen
tine. Ne.b., and these papers can be sen
to Dallas and Oregory, all papers will ul
timately have to he mailed or brought to
Dallas and delivered to Judge Wltten, the
superintendent of t lie opening, before 4:30
p, ,m. on Saturday, October 17, as Judge
Witten's headquarters will be here after
September !S, and the drawing will take
place at Dallas beginning at 10 a. m. Mon;
day, October 1!V Inasmuch rs the Instruc
tions of the Interior department prohibit
the sending of the. registration papers by
registered mail, many will chooso to make
aure of their papers being In time by com
ing to Dallas to register or else by mailing
their papers, direct to Dnllas. To handle
this Immense amount of mail, In addition
to tha personal letters and other mall
addressed to applicants, the Postofficc de
partment Is preparing to employ an addi
tional force of clerks and keep the local
postoffice open until late Into the night.
There will be extra clerks to sort and de
liver mail, for registry and money order
business and for stamp sales. Profiting by
the experience of former openings every
precaution will be taken to avoid delays
and mistakes and to enable the thousands
of visitors to get their mall without long
waiting at the postoffice window. Tem
porary mall boxes will be IncHted at street
corners so that the Inniimerab'e letters,
papers, post cards and souvenirs will not
have to be taken to the postoffice proper
to be mailed.
FVr the handling of the registration pa
pers the banks, land agencies and real
estate offices have arranged to have a
large number of competent clerks and nota
ries who will not only be able to make out
the papers quickly, but will be qualified to
answer questions as to the rights of those
who apply for registration.
While these plans are going on the town
board Is working and planning; for the ac
commodation and comfort of visitors. The
local Masonic, lodge will look after visiting
members of the fraternity, and the women
of the churches have formed an organiza
tion and chosen a competent woman from
Omaha, experienced In Young Women's ,
Christian association work, to take proper
care of women vlaltora. Additions to the
hotels are being built and new lodging and
eating houses erected. There will be numer
ous amusements, cowboy bands, stage bold
tips, lariat throwing and steer tying con
tests. Unlike many other land "lotteries"
there will be no need for the visitors to
seek entertainment at gambling. There will
be plenty of high class entertainment for
all who come.
hla wife had a warrant sworn out for his
arrest and an officer accompanied her to
the meeting place. When Jacobs appeared
alone he was plseed under arrest.
The fact that neihter of the parents wss
willing to give up a claim to the boy. J
finally led to a reconciliation. A confer
enre was held In the office of J. O. Det
weller, Mrs. Jacobs' attorney, and It wa-i
agreed that the kldn.iplng raw1 should be
dismissed and the boy given back to his
mother. Justice Rarhir.ann Olsmlxsed the
complaint and Mr. aod Mrs. Jacobs were
exhorted l i live tanetl r and give the boy
a chance for a home.

forf corn show purposes. The proximity of
the new building to the auditorium will be
such as to give two floors of additional
space for exhibition purposes during the
corn show. Tills space will approximate
11.616 feet. It will be equipped with all
modern appliances of water, electricity and
gas. An entrance will be provided from the
basement floor of the auditorium and an
other by means of a viaduct from the
stage floor of the auditorium to the second

considerable discussion about the court

Many of those who have watched elections
agree with District Clerk Smith that there
should be an election commission either
appointed or elected which would have full
power to appoint and dlschurge election
boards and which would be responsible for
tho action of the local boards.
"I believe all votes should be counted by
one canvassing board composed or txp;r,!,"
said M. O. Cuiinlnghum, a member of the
present canvassing board. "The tallot

Elmer K. Thomas, representing the Anti

to me county board a request that the
question of county option be placed on tho
ballot at the coming election In order to
get an expression of opinion on the sub
ject from tho people of the county, lie
said he had spoken to Robert O. Kink of
the Personal Rights league about tho atti
tude of that organization on the matter,
but Mr. Kl nk said lie could not tell what
the league would want to do until he had
presented it to the executive committee.
"The vole would not be blmliiiK on any
one." said Mr. Thomas, "and I realize we
would be beaten. But we want tin expres
sion of the voters In this cuunly and this
would be a good way to get It. The Anil
Saloon league Is up to this paint-it we
can't Bet an expression of the voters this
way we will have to put up an independent

some good men on both tickets an I we
don't want to do it. If the board will put
the question of county option on the t:ng
machine an independent ticket will not be

YODER SUPPLIES TEACHERS
tonnty Superintendent Mends Out
TmrnO-Flve to Fill Demand
lu the State.
Through County Superintendent Yodcr's
office Douglas county has furnished
twenty-five teachers this year to counties
In which there Is a scarcity of school
ma'ams. This number does not Include
those teachers who secure their positions
outside the county without the aid of the
"Most of these teachers go to the west
ern counties," said Mr. Voder. "I do not
think there la a teal scarcity of teachers In
this state. It Is more properly a matter of
distribution. Cheyenne county may be
short fifteen teachers and Douglas county
may have more than fifteen it does not
need. But the distance and the UJ a ,r,.m
make It undesirable for the Douglas county l
teachers to accept the Cheyenne county I
positions. I think there are enonrh t...i,.
era In the state to supply the needs of
all schools if they were properly distributed."

Nebraska l.lnee Take Radical Action
in the l.onibrr Rate
Nebraska railroads will take the tactual
action In the lumber rate fight of refusing
to concur In the through rates to points
in Nebraska, west of Omaha and Lincoln.
They Bay they will file their notice or lion
concurrance Monday or Tuesday at Wash
ington. In "this contest the railroads are
fighting for the wholesale dealers of Omaha
and Lincoln. Some time ago the commis
sion ordered a readjust ment of the rates,
putting Lincoln and Omaha n n paiity on
southern lumber. This was done by raising
the rates to OniHlia. The southern roads
refused to advance the through rates to
a tasis of the combination of the locals,
which puts the wholesaleis o Lincoln and
Omaha at a disadvantage.
Fur the deep watcrwas convention at
Chicago, October 5 to 7, the Milwaukee has
