Bill is Found to
Democratic Legislature Made Another
Bij Blunder, in, Putting Political
(Frof a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. April l5.-(8peclal.) Dr. F. W.
Tucker of Lincoln, the driver of the royal
automobile and general bandy man for the
democrats during- the last campaign, the
man slated tor the job of state health In
spector, may fall to land. This because
the .legislature,' due 'to Its Incompetency,
got balled up on the bill by which It gave
to the governor tho right to appoint the
state health inspector, taking that right
away, from the. (Hue Board of llelutli In
the democratic effort to let the people rule
and the more of them the better.
Tha "bill as- passed amends sections 9802
and 8ST1 of tliB Cobboy statutes. Section
provides for the' appointment of a
board of secretaries by the State Board of
Health. Section 971 provides for the board
of secretaries to nominate three persons
for state health Inspector from which the
State Board of Health shall appoint the
health Inspector. This section In the new
law is chsnged to permit the governor to
make tiie appointment without the nom
The law makes no reference to section
WTO. which provides that the 8tate Board of
Health shall appoint a state health Inspec
tor and fixes that official's salary at $1,800
a year and prescribes his Uut. U further
provides that 1he State Board of Secretaries
shall nominate three persons and recof
mend them to the state board. From these
the Inspector Is to be appointed. In case
the State Board of Secretaries does not
' agrea then the board may go ahead and
make the appointment without reference
to tttt persons recommended.
The construction of the law at least
leave grave doubts as to the right of the
governor to appoint.
Should Dr. Tucker lose out in his effin ts
to sec me this Job. the effect can hardl
b imagined. The doctor was talked of
for prison physician and failed to land
that. ) During the campaign he stood for
hours' at a time at the coiner of Tenth
and Q streets and handed out Bryant but
tons lo every person who parsed. He was
there early and late. The only recognition

Here, on Nebraska's fertile plains, her
sturdy sous, with a generous seal, have
adorned and beautified the farms, the ave
nues, the homes and ery city and hamlet
by the planting and growing of trees that
for yesrs to come will spread forth their
graoerui Dranrnes ror tne protection, pleas

A. D. 1MB, as Arbor day and earnestly

LINCOLN, April 15. (SpeciaV)-A wrong,
erroneous and altogether bad idea Is pre
valent in Omaha that Governor Shallen
ber has accepted the resignation of Colonel
Charles E. Fanning. Governor Shallen
berger has done nothing of the kind. To
have done so would have prevented the
trial of Colonel Fanning by court martial
for offering: his resignation in the face of
danger. The governor wrote Colonel Fan
ning a nice letter upon the receipt of his
resignation, but be did not accept it. Colo
nel Fanning accepted the yoke and he
will be forced to wear it unless the gov
ernor has it removed by way of a court
Incidentally, at the same time Colonel
Fanning Is tried there will be other de
fendants before the same court martial
for attempting to get colonels to desert
their posts. Governor Shallenbergcr has In
his possession a letter which will furnish
the foundation for the conviction of some
one in Omaha.
The letter la as follows:
OMAHA, April . Governor A. C. ,Shal
lenberger. Lincoln: On demand of my dem
ocratic friends, I have been requested to
resign from your staff. Yours truly,
V. F. KUNCL.
Colonel Kunci has been requested to re
sign, no doubt, as hla letter says, but he
has failed to comply with the request, and
he, too, is still a colonel. A rigid Investiga
tion Is due to discover those who demanded
that Colonel Kuncl desert hla chief In his
hour of trouble and the colonel likely will
be summoned to Lincoln to tell their names
to the cummander-ln-chlcf of the army of
Colonel Kuncl wrote to the governor on
his business letterhead. On one corner of
the letterhead is printed hla coat of arms,
the picture of a beautiful fat little pig
sitting If a swing made of "wienies." Mr.

South Thirteenth street, Omaha.
Governor's Poaltloa I'pheld.
At a bsnquet given In honor of former
Vice President Fairbanks in Los Angeles,
Governor Shallenberger was endorsed for
signing the daylight saloon bill, which will
be news to some -of the governor's demo
cratic colonels. In a letter to the governor
the following statement Is made:
At a banquet here In Los Angeles lant
evening, given in honor of Vice President
Fairbanks, the mention of your name
brought every man to his feet and tho
cheers were deafening. Tou have prated
beyond a doubt that the day of men 4eaot

limitations of all men: that you have the
courage to do right as It Is given to you to
see the right, in the sight of God and your
Work Ahead for Baalish.

In order that his betrothed bride might

them both to the New York port to show
the immigration officials that he intends
in good faith to marry the girl ana to es
tablish a home In thla country. The name

As a preliminary to an attempt to get a
few more counties out of quarantine Dr.
Jucknes, state veterinarian, and Dr. A. T.
Peters of the state farm will make & two

men on cattle mange and kindred diseases.
The entire state waa at one time under

Governor Sheldon and aa a result of the
subsequent work and conferences between
state and federal officiala the quarantine
line waa moved back to the Klnkald line.
The state veterinarian hopes to get another

"clean" this spring or summer and then
continually move back the dead Una until
the entire state la declared "clean.'! ' In

The cattlemen are thus saved money. When
they appealed to Governor Sheldon they
stated that they were willing to bear the
entire expense of Inspection If necessary.
Uninspected cattle run the r'sk of con

May Stop Serving
of Liquor in Cafes
Attorney General Says .General Prac
tice ia Illegal Unless License
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Neb., April li. (Special Tele
gram.) In answer to an Inquiry from
County Attorney Tyrrell of Lancaster
county regarding the legality of the sale
of liquor In a cafe which Is connected with
a saloon conducted by another party, At
torney General Thompson today gave out
an opinion. '
The attorney general holds that If the
proprietor of a hotel or cafe occasionally
permlta his employes to bring In liquor and
serve the same with the .meals served his
guests, the same may not be a violation of
the law. But if the proprietor, of the hotel
designedly countenances such practice and
does It for the purposo pt securing trade,
the act would be In violation of the taw.
The attorney general holds that where the
hotel or cafe proprietor also owns the sa
loon, unless his license covers' both places
of business, then he la subject to prosecu
tion If he makes a practice of selling liquor
with meals served In the cafe. It is held
that each case depends upon the facts and
circumstances surrounding the sale.

Cooper claims that 70 per cent ef all III
health Is due to stomach trouble. When In
terviewed about his theory . recently, he
said: "Stomach trouble Is the great curse
of the 20th century so far as the civilized
races are concerned. Fractlcally all of the
chronic ill health of this generation is
caused by abnormal stomachic conditions.
In earlier days, when the human race was
closer to nature, and men and women
worked all day out of doors, digging their
frugal existence from the soil, the tired,
droopy, half-sick people that are now so
common, did not exist.
"To be sure, there was sickness In those
days, but It was of a virulent character,
and , only, tcmperary, .There was none of
this halt-sick condition all the time with
which sb many'are'affllcted now-a-days.
"1 know positively' that every bit of this
chronic 111 health Is caused by stomach
trouble. The human stomach in civilized
people today Is degenerate. It lacks tone
and strength. This weakness has gradually
come through a sedentary existence. I fur
ther know that few people can be sick with
tho digestive apparatus In perfect shape.
The sole reason for my success Is because
my New Dlsoo"very medicine tones the
stomach up to required strength in about
six weeks' tinie. That is why 1 have had
more people come and thank me wherever
I have gone to Introduce my medicine, than
V have had time to talk with."

gestlon and stomach trouble. I was subject
to frequent attacks of severe sick headache.
I had to be very particular as to the kind
of food I ate. I could not eat vegetables
of any kind, nor ahyttrhig sweet; and even
then I would be In distress after meals.
Any food of a solid nature caused a feel
ing of heaviness after eating.
"I tried everything I could hear of and
took many different remedies without bene
fit. Finally I heard of the Cooper remedies)
and obtained a treatment of Cooper's New
Discovery. , j .
