home In Nfhswka Tuesdsy mornins. when
be will spend the boHdaja. He stdpned Ui
Lincoln for a few hours Monday. He Is
firmly convinced that Speaker Cannon will
hanp to the job and that the next election,
which will come with the spertid session
In March, will see the oppoettlcin line up
in docile fashion for the autocratic smeaker.
Before election Congressman Pollard
would not state hi position publicly. He
said to his friend that he "did not wish

Rest Rwa twr Wtars.
Wive of farmers who come to Lincoln
to do their trading will shortly be accom
modated with a delightful rest room fixed
up In the basement of the city hall. Borne
weeks ago the city fathers would not even
entertain such an Idea, but last r.ight when
a delegation of women swooped down on
the council meeting the vote could not have
been more unanimous to let the women
have the room.
Job Lka GM to Biskra.
There has been a lot of talk about Horace
Bishop turning down the appointment as
teward at the Insane hospital here and
holding on to the ctty council Job. At this
time Bishop's refusal la about as likely as
a statement from Arthur Mullen that he
win stay with his lucrative law practice
and turn down the oil Inspectorship!
Grerae Waists X Rehearing;.
R. J. Greene, the Lincoln lawyer who was
convicted In tbe lower court of extorting
money from a saloon keeper, but who came
clear In the supreme court because the
judges held the law unconstitutional, will
not ask for a rehearing.. When asked if
he would ask the court for a rehearing
Mr. Greene replied:
'Tnless 1 am forced to do to, I gnesa 1
will not ask for a rehearing."
Some of Mr. Greene's friends thought he
might ask for a vindication instead of
being satisfied to get off by a technicality.

BROKEN BOW County Attorney C. L.
Gutterson, who sustained serious injuries
bv tbe overturning of hi hupxT late Pnn
tlsy afternoon, was reported somewhat
better today. The almost severed ear ha
been stitched In place by lr. Mullin and
will probably knit together without much
trouble. From later statements it appear
that the two automobiles were not actually
trying to pas Judce Gutterson at the time
of the accident, but were some distance
away. The horse, seeing their approach,
took fright, made a quick. hort turn and
upset the hurry. Mrs. Gutterson. who wa
with her busliand. was also hurt, but not
seriously. Judre Gutterson is one of the
well known legal light of western Ne
braska and the unfortunate accident will
be generally deplored among members of
the bar and his numerous friend.
