LINCOLN. April 14. (Special. )-Governor
Rhallenbergar, Kttod Commissioner 8. L
Mains and' About fifty representative of
the various creameries of the state met in
representative hall this afternoon to dis
cuss the new legislation affecting the
dallies and creameries of Nebraska. Gov
ernor ghallenbsrgar msdo a short state
ment In which h told the creamery men
he has signed a bill prohibiting the rushing
of the can.' after 8 o'clock, but that had
no effect upon the milk cans, which were
good things to rush all the time. The gov
ernor gave a short talk on the future of
the dairy business of Nebraska and then
Food Commlshioner Mains informed the
convention lie had ruled that under the
law providing fof the registration of can
marks wtlh the secretary of state, It Is
unlawful for creameries to loan their cans
to the farmers, but that they must at all
times be In possession of the creameries
or their agents. He ruled also that all cans
must be marked and one of them to be In
the possession of other- than an agent of
the ceramery would be a violation of ths
This ruling forces the farnu-rs to have
their own cans. Mr. Mains sild It was
Inspired by a destre- to compel the cream
to be handled in a. mure sanitary manner.
Some of the creamery men said they had
everal thousand 'cans scattered out over
the state and that they had been forced to
loan them by competition.
At the conclusion f the hearing the
creamery men passed a vote of thanks to
Mr. Maine for his assistance In getting
the kills through the losJalature and prom
ised hlra their help in enforcing the law
to the letter.
On 'Mora Fire Escape,
Another sample of thu Incompetency of
the late legislature In found in H. R. 26.
which permits the .construction of cylinder
fire escapes. The bill signed by the gov
ernor provides that buildings over two
stories In height shall be equipped "with
one mor fire escapes." The bill should have
read, no'doubht,"wlth one or more." But
the little- word "or" is left out of the
enrolled bill and now all buildings which
have a fire escape must.be equipped with
"one more." '
Civics Active In Mneola.
Notwithstanding the, possibility of no
election in Lincoln this spring, the Civic
Irsgue Is getting busy for a campaign the
like of which the city has never seen be
fore. . Jt Is the Intention of the civics, de
cided on at ar meeting held last night, to
have Governor Hanly of Indiana and other
prominent speakers address rthe voters be
fore the election In an effort to put the
saloons out of business. The CIWo league
expects to. got results by reason of the
fact that the people have, three , proposi
tion! to vote on prohobttlon, T o'clock clos
ing and : closing. The two propositions
relative to the . hours of closing are ex
pected at lesst to partially divide the
forces who favor saloons and thds give the
prohibitionists an opportunity to carry their
point by less than a majority vote.
The temperance forces expert to wind up
the campaign .with a monster parade Just
a day or two before election. In the mean-
time numerous meetings' will te held.
Tyrrell's By on ran grew.
County Attorney Tyrrell Is getting some
roasting Just at this time because some
of his friends have spoken of him as good
material for congressman for the First dis
trict. While the county attorney probably
has not heard of the reports and cares
less about them, the mention of his name
as a congressional possibility has stirred
up the friends of other candidates to dis
credit him. It Is charged that the owner
of a hotel, restaurant and saloon combined
permitted the sale of beer to lunch cus
tomers and the same was served In the
dining room, and the county attorney has
failed to file a complaint. No complaint
has been made, because the city attorney
or city prosecutor has taken no action ra
the matter, but Mr. Tyrrell cornea In for
the abuse simply because he has been men
tioned aa a congressional possibility. And

FREMONT, Neb., April 14 (Special.)
The divorce . esse of Charles Stasia
agalnat Martha Staats, which was prob
ably the most sensational case ever filed
here, was dismissed this afternoon with
out prejudice, as has been anticipated
by parties , familiar with the .facta ever
since the defendant riled her answer and
The case was set for trial this morn
ing. The plaintiff did not appear and
his attorney, Joe Cook, asked for a con
tinuance. This was resisted by the at
torneya for the defense. Mr. Cook in
formed the court he had talked with both
parties and they had settled. The de
fendant's attorneys doubted whether this
was so. The court then said he was go
ing to convince himself which was right
and directed both attorneys to produce
their clients In court. Mr. Cook, after
some search, reported that he could not
locate his client ant Mr. Button for the
defendant said his client was within
call. The court declined to rant any
continuance and gave the plaintiffs at
torney until 1:30 to get ready.
At 1:30 he appeared and filed a dis
missal without prejudice. The- de
fendant then dismissed her cross-petition.
Costs were taxed to the plaintiff.
People living near the Statts' residence,

trial. It looks as If the parties had patched
