Mayor Dahlman left Lincoln before the
inaugural ball, only staying long enough
to see the new governor vested with the
mantle of authority. When he left at
four o'clock In the afternoon Colonel Fan
ning, to use the words of the mayor, "was
tearing bis shirt" because his uniform was
lost. The expansive garb was packed in a
trunk 'and billed for Lincoln, but it was
lost somewhere enroute and the combined
efforts of the colonel and bis spies could
not locate it The express offices were
ransacked Vnd the wtres between the
capital elty and Omaha were kept hot In
an aifort to find the uniform, but up t
the hour of the mayor's departure it was
still a missing quanlty.
"George Parks of South Cm ah a luckily
had a Robert Emmet suit with htm and
he offered it to Colonel Tanning," said
the mayor, "but whether the brave soldier
wore It at the ball or whether he found his
uniform, I can not tell."

TO COUNT NATION'S GAME BAG
Sportaaaem Aid Asduboa Workers to
Cheek Market Heaters state
Laws Mar Help.
NEW YORK. Jan. 8. To measure the con
tents of Uncle Barn's game bag during tne
new year la the object of a concerted effort
In which sportsmen from every section or
the country are Joining tha National As
sociation of Audubon Societies in this city
today. Detailed records of each day s shoot
ara to be secured from every true sports
man, and required by law of everyone else,
it Is proposed, in all states where the Aud
ubon and sporting Interests will urge the
crying need of legislation to this effect
Unless the annual Inroads upon the rapidly
decreasing game of America are thus de
termined, the leaders ef the new . move
ment declared today, shooting, as a 'healthy
recreation, will soon be killed in almost
every ' region of the continent.
That the health, crops and woods, as well
as the sport, of many extensive localities
are today seriously menaced by the extinc
tion of game birds will be demonstrated by
the latest results of the scientific Investiga
tions of government authorities at Wash
ington. Water fowl and shore birds will
be shown in their natural rapacity of de
stroying the anopheles mosquito as well ss
many other recognised distributers of
deadly germs. Gulls and many other va
rieties of sea and inland water birds wilt
be proven by ornithological experts to be
wholesale destroyers of grasshoppers and
a multitude of the trisects which cause an
annual crop and forest loss of nearly a bil
lion dollars, or more than the entire na
tional debt, as recently announced, accord
ing to the most recent calculations of the
government bureau of entomology. Tha
case of Salt Lake City, whose people have
erected a monument to the jjulla that saved
all their crops from destruction by an in
sect plagua will also be cited.
In every one of the state legislatures
which are beginning to convene for tha
new year special efforts to obtain legal
provision for this game census are being
planned among organised sportsmen and
Audubon workers. Where a hunter's license
lav is already In force the addition of a
law to enforce the recording of all game
birds and ailsnals shot will be urged. It Is
proposed, in order to protect the true
sportsman and to detect market hunters,
to punish failures to report the season's
shoot by a forfeiture of license, and tales
returns by proceeding as against perjury
Special blanks tor tha purpose are being
prepared as an attachment to all hunters'
