WHZAT NEEDS HIS ATTENTION
Internrbaa Denied Privilege of

crrom a tsff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Aug. 12 (Special )-Acting
Governor Hopewell, who reached the execu
tire office shortly after noon today, broke
a record and set a precedent In the disposal
Of requisition matters. Immediately after
reading the papers In the requisition Issued
by the governor of Illinois for the return
to Chloago of Edward Pesplall of Omaha
en a charge of wife abandonment, be
honored the same. It required about ten
minutes to read the papers and question
the man's wifs and announce Ms Intentions.
Governor Shallenberger had a hearing on
the matter a week ego and then left It for
Acting Governor Hopewell to finish.
- Poeptsll was convicted of wife abandon
n.ent three years sub In Chicago and was
ordered to pay bis wife 84 a week, giving
a bond to guaranty the payment. After
paying In 820 ha left the city and was lo
cated In Omaha working In a barber shop
and. according to his wife, who followed
him, living with another woman. Under
the statute of Illinois, the attorney general
informed the governor, when bond Is given
to pax money In a case like this, this bond
merely suspends Judgment, and If payment
Is not made thf-n the sentence of the court
msy be csrrled-out and the guilty man
Bint to jail.
"I am going home tonight, said Acting
Governor Hopewell, "for I have a lot of
work to do. I am in the midst of harvest
ing and only came down today to clean up
some business In the offloo of the gov
ernor." Acting Governor Hopewell has only 600
acres In wheat this year and of this about
1A acres Is yet to be cut, ths wet weather
having interrupted the work.
"We axe thrashing and cutting In the
same field," said the governor, "and the
yield on a part of the land is thirty-five
b'isrels to the acre. Crops never In all the
history of the state looked as well as now
In the northeast section of Nebraska. Corn
Is looking flna and the hot weather has not
yet bothered us, though it may have done
some damage In other sections."
. Ten-Cent Fare Denied.
The application of tha Nebraska Trac
tion and Power company to Install a 10
cent passenger rate from Omaha to tiouth
Omaha has been denied by the State Kail
way commission. Tha company, which
has a line from Omaha to Balaton, filed
with the railway commission Its schedule
of rates, which provided for a IS-cent rate
to Ralston and a 10-cent rata to South
Omaha. Inasmuch aa the Omaha A Coun
cil Bluffs Street Railway company has .a
fc-cent rata to South Omaha from Omaha
tha commission balked at giving the, other
company authority to charge M cents.
Tha new company explained that it had
a contract with tha old company by
which It agreed If permitted to use the
tracks of tha eld company it would not
competa for local business between the
two clttea, but would cater strictly to ln
terurban trade. For that reason it desired
to put In tha higher rata.
Haling oat Trmla Law.
Attorney Genera) Thompson has given
an opinion to tha State .-Railway commis
sion regarding tha law providing for a
full erow on trains. Tha attorney general
holds that In referring to a train of five
cars the law means five cars, whether they
be baggage cars or any other kind of
cars, and It Is not necessary for the train
to be composed of five passenger coaches
to come under "the provisions of - the law.
In tha same opinion he holds that the
conductor Is not responsible for the taking
out of a short crew, composed of less
men than the law provides. The officials
responsible under the law are those who

Each of them will have a four-inch Havana Cigar. Rough

Cobs are regular cigars of irregular shape with the regulation
Havana Taste. You couldn't get anything else that's better.
A YARD OF HAVANA (divided into four-inch lengths)
is wrapped in each package of Cobs. Every dealer everywhere

spinal meningitis, or infantile paralysis,

continuation of the quarantine as to public
