LINCOLN, S"pt. 4. (Special.) The
county attorney of Matte county has
tecn Instructed to stop the proceedings
uealnst the Pullman Car company, insti
tuted at the request of Hallway Commis-
loner Cowglll, who was charged a berth
rate from Columbus to Omaha when he
believed a seat rate was sufficient. The
reasons for the request to dismiss given
by the commission was to the effect that
the alleged offense had been committed
In Colfax instead of In Matte county
As a matter of fact, however, upon
looking up their old orders It Is said
k I the commission discovered that it had
' given permission to the rullmah com
pany to do the very thing the commis
sion complained of. Instead of giving
permission to sell seas at berth rates
over two roads, one from the east and
one fiom the west, the commission dis
covered upon Investigation of its work
that it had given permission to charge
- the berth rate on four trains.
Since that episode, however, the cum
' mission has issued an order that seats
on the Pullman are free whenever there
-are no other seats on the train. Hut the
S free Pullman passenger has to move to

.Material for New Shops.
The first material for the construction
of the new Burlington' shops at Havelock
was unloaded this morning. The new

the labor of 300 men for a year and a half.

W In my opinion, a central county slaughter '
' bouse, operated under the direction of the
county government. In the big shops and
) slaughter houses we find conditions very
good and little cause to complain, but
in the small shops is where there Is bad
sanitation and dirty conditions. I think
that in lime there will be established In
' each county a slaughter house where all
, the butchering for the county will be done
under close Inspection. This slaughter
Jiouse should be under the personal dlrec
tiwu of some one who is able to detect
diseased stock. I know of no other way
to prevent the killing and selling of dis
eased animals. Of course it may take
years before a county slaughter hou.-e will
be established, but 1 believe it Is coming."

Northwestern, Does Weil.
The annual report of the Northwestern
railroad, filed with the Stale Hallway com-
' mission, shows a good Increase In the
umount of business done in the year 19C8
computed with the year 1H06-1907, notwllh
standing both passenger and freight rates
were reduced by the h-gislature of 1U0T.
' Operating expenses for l'.HW were more than
In l'Art and less than in l!x7 per mile, but
In the abnegate were gi eater than for
Hither 1W7 or I'juS. The great Increase In
is shown In the number of passengers
lauled one mile. As Uie figures relate
t solely to Nebraska some part of this In
crease in passengers carried may be due
to the registration at Valeuijne and
O'Neill for the land drawing in South Da-
J . .utu last year. The number of passengers
' --carried for one mile in round numbers

Bass by the Seine Poll.
NEBRASKA CITY. Neb., Sept. 4.
(Special.) J. W. O'Brien. state fish
commissioner, has been here several
times this week with his car and each
time secured a carload of bass, ranging
from two to six Inches In length, from
the ponds on the east side of the river.
There are millions of these game fish
over there and since the river has be
come low they have been left In the
ponds, and as the water Is shallow there
Is no trouble In getting all of the game
fsh needed Many of them have been
taken to Omaha and other points, where
they were placed In lakes. There never
has been so many game fish In the
ponds here as this season and they all
came with the high water, and If not
taken out will die when the water gets
shallower or cold weather comes. Many
of the farmers have been seining them
out and stocking their ponds with them.
Mr. O'Brien expects to secure two more
carloads next week.
Will Contest In York.
YORK, Neb., Sept 4. (Special.) The
will of Caroline Barrett was admitted In
probate court today. She left six chil

In making her will she gave $5 to each
grandchild, cutting off two daughters,
Mrs. Oeorge Jenkins and Mrs. Ed Hen
drlx, with only $10 each and left the bulk
of the estate to be divided equally with
the four remaining children. Mrs. Jen
kins and Mrs. Hendricks have employed
attorneys to contest the will, claiming
It was made at the residence of one of
the sons, where undue influence was ex
erted upon the mother, whom they claim
was not of sound mind.
Several years ago there was an es
trangement between the mother and the
two daughters, which recently was made
up and it was supposed that In the dis
tribution of the property they would re
ceive an equal share. The case promises
to be bitterly contested.

The youngest member of Omaha's Commercial Family this store
greets you this morning. An infant in years, but a giant in sie,
strength and deeds and growing every day.
One year ago this morning, Sept. 5, 1908, this store opened
its doors and hid the puhlic enter. It stood without a dollar's
worth of past business upon which to build, but it did have un
limited confidence in its ability to give Omaha a better store,
better service and better values and the readiness of Omaha people
to support such a store. During the past year over 35,000 men
have bought suits and overcoats here every one satisfied, too.
"We exieet that the same methods that attracted 35,000 men in
one year will attract a like number this coming year and we have
prepared to serve 75,000 particular men with suits and overcoats.
We ask you to see us before deciding the clothes question.
It's school time send your boy
to school in a suit selected from
our stock of over 7000 suits.
Buying school suits Is a trying; ordeal for most parents Every storo,
no matter how Inferior their school suits may be, or how limited their as
sortment, is claiming to have the biggest department, and the best school
suits Little wonder there Is so much, confusion before buying, or so much
disappointment after buyine. .
We claim to be boys' clothiers extraordinary We have over 7,000
boys' suits In full view on our great second floor. Every one Is sold with an
unqualified money back guarantee to save you from 15 to 25 per cent, ac
cording to quality Our boys' suits are priced from $1.50 to 115.00, which
shows a variety no other Omaha store even attempts but for utmost value,
style and serviceability, we recommend our lines at
$2.50, $5.50, $5.00

by successive biows." It is understood,
however, that the Foreign board did not
expect as much as it got.
ALL THE HUSBAND'S FAULT
Missouri Judicial View of Illsh
Tenipcrcd and Domineer
MACON, Mo., Sept. 4. The relative im
portance of the parties to a domestic part
nership was recently defined by two Mis
souri Juuges, Judge N. M. Shelton of the
circuit bench and Judge M. A. Romjue of
the probate court.
In the case before the circuit court a
young man wanted the marital bonds sev
ered because his wife was of a high
strung, nervous temperament. Judge Shel
ton refused to enter a decree, giving nis
reasons as follows:
"Woman has a right to be high tem
pered If she wants, arid her husband ought
to be man enough to yield her that privi
lege. What If the wife does fly all to
pieces now and then and say mean things?
Most good women have some spirit, and
they can't help showing it once In a
while. A wife has Just as much right to
possess a temper as her husband has, and
the husband's duty is to Indulge her when
she wants to express herself.
"This young woman here, the evidence
shows, has borne four children; she does
the entire work for the family, and does
it well. Her work about the house Is Just
as Important as her husband's work In the
fields. She raises the family; he looks
after the crops and gathers In the money.
"Marriage Is a reciprocity contract. The
husband, because he is the stronger, lias
no right to lay down any more stringent
rules for his wife to follow than he fol
lows himself. Nine times out of ten when
a wife gets angry It is because her hus
band has imposed upon her. If you would
throw your arms around your wife and
kiss her once In a while when she has

been working hard and Is red In the face
from cooking over her stove for you and
the children, perhaps you wouldn't find
her so high tempered as you think she Is.
"That Is all I have to say now; you
people run along home and go back to
In the case before Judge Romjue a wife
was procedlng against her husband for
desertion. In the course of the evidence
it appeared that the wife was something
of a talker and the executive officer of
the family. The man was mild mannered.
Judge Komjue finally decided that he
knew what was the trouble in that family,
and stated it thus:
"The whole' trouble between you people
seems to be a want of self-assertion upon
the part of the husband. He is really the
one to blame. When his wife made a do
mestic nuisance of herself by berating him
before the children he should have shut
her up, mildly If he could, firmly, if neces
sary. It was his duty to stop the erup
tion. "She had drifted so much Into the habit
of lecturing him that it became a sort of
second nature with her, and she did It
mechanically, not maliciously, but because
It was the simple and natural thing to do.
"All the evidence In this case shows that
the defendant is an unusually quiet man
You might call him subdued. He looks It.
A subdued husband, however, is a rather

"He's the one who has to find the money
to run it, and fight oft the wolf and other
enemies. I doubt very much whether a
woman can entertain any respect for a
husband who will submit to her constant
nagging without resenting it. She grows
to look upon him as a sort of mollycoddle,
and the woman never lived who could love
"I believe the Lord Intended men to rule
the house and be obeyed, and when they
fall or refuse to accept the responsibility
of control they do it on peril of their do
"The defendant here does not seem to be
a very reprehensible man. He's lacking

The proceedings were dismissed and wife
