LINCOLN. July .-Ppecial.-The fate
of the nonpartisan judiciary law la now n
tha handa of the supreme court. The argu
ment were made this morning and tt was
announced that the court would hand down
us aecision roonnsy srternoon i i o curen.
The case came up from Lancaster county,
where John M. Reagan of Hastings secured
a writ of mandamus to compel Secretary
of Stat Jurkln to place his name oq the
primary ballot as a candidate for the re
publican nomination for supreme Judge.
Tha stats appealed tha case. The respondent
wan represented by Attorney General
Thompson, Deputy Grant Martin and Oil
Inspector Arthur Mullen, while General
Jchn C. Cowin and C. O. Whedon looked
after the Interests of the relator.
, 'In their arguments Mr. Cowin and Mr.
Whedon contended that the act la uncon
stitutional, because It amended certain sec
tions of the statute which had .been ex
pressly repealed by former legislatures and
carried over , In the- Cobbey statutes by
mistake. They also alleged- there Is (noth
ing In the title of the act of 1907. the pri
mary laws, that Indicates that the body la
to provide for a nonpartisan Judiciary. It
jwas further argued that to require a
candidate tor supreme Judge to secure a
petition of 5,000 signers, not more than BOO
of whom shall reside In any one county,
while at tha same Urns requiring candi
dates for regent of the University of Ne
braska to secure only 1.000 signers to their
petitions is discrimination, and .It was
'. finally pleaded that the aot prevents the
' fiee use of the franchise.
Position of the State.
Mr. Mullen, who made the principal
speech for the state, contended that where
the amendment made to a statute repeated
waa merely Incidental, It was all right and
valid. Tha present aot la complete in Itself
and not dependent upon the amended sec
tions. He argued that the Dnnohoe law
waa not qlaes legislation, because It was
uniform as to class. He quoted from a
decision by Judge Reese In State against
Burkes, 10 Nebraska 876:
"X law which Is general and uniform
throughout tha state, operating alike upon
all persons and localities or a class or
. whloh brings them within tha relation and
clroumatanoea provided for la not objection
able as wanting uniformity of operation."
Mr. Mullen contended that the legisla
ture had a light to provide how candidates
should be nominated and he cited the pri
mary law which. provided that candidates
should be nominated at a primary and
not at a convention.
Ho cited a Minnesota case where a can
didate for a nomination and defeated at
tha primary waa prohibited to run at the
general election as the Minnesota law pro
vided how candidates should get their
names on the general ballot and the law
"tn bis closing- Mr,. Mullen called attention 1
of tha court to -the petition, which, ha said
did not set out a cause of action. Tha re
lator did not comply with the provisions
of the primary law In that he did not
present to tha secretary of state a receipt
showing that ha had paid to the treasurer
of Adams county the filing fee. The ac
tion, be said, should have been against the
county treasurer who refused to accept
tha fee. He called attention to this, he
said, merely to show the court that the
attorneys for the relator had not looked
into the case before they started It.
Wife Drlag, Mnstoond Insane.
- Mrs. Jennie Talbot of Sheridan county Is
dying at Green Gables and her husband.
James Talbot, la confined In a room there
raving and mad, because he believes It was
hie own fault that caused his wife's 111
ness. Mr. Talbot is a ranchman tyvlng
near Rushville. Soma time ago his wife
was taken 111 and being unable to secure
medical attention cloae at hand, ha sent
her to her old home at David City. Several
days ago she .waa brought on to Green
Gables. This morning when Mr. Talbot waa
told bis wife could not survlvs ha at 'ones
began to rave and It was necessary to con
lie blames himself f'r not bitngtng his
wife to the hospital whon ike first began
to complain Instead of pemittt'ng her to
stay out on the ranh. He tc-M Ms relatives
he would give all a world If he had paid
more attention to Ms wife's condition dur
ing the last two years . and lass to his
business. His condition la such now that
there are strong fears that ha will never
fully recover his reason.
Mrs. Talbot Is tha mother of five children
and Is about 46 years of age.
Bum" Car ReajnUrly Searched.

BRYAN WRITES ON INCOME TAX
Nebraakan Sees Vindication of Demo
cratic Platform In Recent
Events at Washing-ton.
LINCOLN, July 10. Mr. Bryan yester
day made publlo the following statement
on the Income tax amendment:
me aemocratic platform of 1908 . con
tained the following Blank:
"We favor an Income tax as Dart of our
revenue system and we urge the submis
sion or a constitutional amendment spe
cifically authorising congress to lew and
collect tax upon Individual and corporate
lssuea to the end that wealth may bear
Its proportionate share of the burdens of
ine federal government.
Mr. Bryan endorsed this plank and urged
the necessity of a constitutional amend
ment. President Taft, In his acceptance
speech. - Insisted that an amendment -was
not necessary. For years the , republican
leaders have opposed an income tax and
denounced the democrats for advocating
It. But behold the change. President Taft
sends a message to congress proposing the
submission of an Income tax amendment
and tt passes the senate by a unanimous
vote 77 yeas, nays none. And It will un
doubtedly pass the house. Was vindica
tion ever more complete? Demooratlc gov
ernors In states having democratic legis
latures ought to call extra sessions at once
and secure Immediate ratification of the
amendment. Income tax clubs ought to
be formed Immediately In every county
nonpartisan clubs to pledge membera of
the various county legislatures to vote for
ratification. Now Is the time to act. The
dollar has been enjoying an exemption
denied to man. As the law Is now, .the
government In time of war can take the
husband from the wife, the son from the
motner ana me rather rrom his children
and stand them up In front of the enemy's
guns; but It cannot even In an hour 61
peril, compel wealth to bear Its share of
ths expenses of the government. The In
come tax amendment ought to be ratified
at the earliest possible moment. Let demo
crats get to work in every community and
Invite republicans to Join them. Now for
the amendment specifically authorising an

OOCLDNT FOOL HIM
Doctor Was IHrm an4 Was aUgbt.
Many doctors forbid their patients to
drink coffee, but the patients still drink It
on the sly and thus spoil all the doctor's
efforts,, and keep themselves sick.
Sornemrnes the doctor makes sure that
ths patient la not drinking coffee and there
waa a case of that kind In 8C Paul, whers
a business man said:
"After a very severe Illness lsst winter
which almost caused my death, the doctor
said Pestura was ths only thing that 1
could drink and he just mads roe quit
coffee and drink Postum. My Illness was
caused by Indigestion from the use of tea
."The stats of tny stomach was so bad
that It beoame terribly Inflamed and
finally resulted fan a ruptare. I had not
drunk Postum very long before my lost
blood waa restored and my stomach was
well and strong and I have now been
asing Postum for almost a year. When
I got up from bed after my Illness I
weighed M pounds and now my weight Is
"There Is no doubht that Postum was
the cause of this wonderful Improvement.
I shall never go back to tea or coffee, but
shall always stick to the food drink that
brought ma back to health and strength."
