PIERCE. Neb., Jan. . (Special.) Not a
single republican of Pierce received an In
vitation to go down to Lincoln Thursday
and "Insurge." In fact, tittle. If any, stock
is taken In the so-called insurgents' sin
cerity by the members of the party here.
It does not taks much effort to harken
back to the presidential campaign of 1908,
when Lincoln and Lancascter county rolled
up a big majority for Bryan and assisted
Jn the defeat of Governor Sheldon, and
Judge Williams, for railway commissioner.

Pet Squirrel May

This ii One Theory of Origin
of Blaze at Broken
BROKEN BOW, Neb., Jan. JO (Special.)
Frank 8. Holmes, Omaha manager for the
TTeetern Adjustment and Inspection com
pany. Is In the city today adjusting the
losses on the burned court house. The
companies represented are: The Phoenix,
Hartford, London, Liverpool and Globe,
German-American, Home, Springfield,
North American and Fire Association of
Philadelphia. The insurance will probably
figure between $13,000 and $14,000. With the
exception of the ' register of deeds', the
vaults have all been opened and guards
placed over them until a temporary gen
eral vault can be constructed. Register of
Deeds Porter says he will ekep his vault
oloseil until that time.
The new offices In the Masonic Temple
are rapidly nearlng completion and wlU be
occupied some time this week.
Since the excitement of the fire has died
down all kinds of theories are now being
advanced" as to Its origin. Some think that
a pet squirrel carried matches between the
walls and Ignited them; others that a cigar
or match waa carelessly thrown Into some
waste In the south end of the building,
while one or two county officials and a
number of outsiders are working around
to thai opinion that it might have been
done on purpose. Revenge, on the part of
some old prisoner, may have been the cause,
but the general belief Is that If the fire
was of Incendiary origin the culprit resides
somewhere In the county. Sheriff Kennedy
has been compelled to take the county pris
oners to Grand Island for safe-keeping, as
the olty has no Jail of Its own.

Having got his rescue party onto the

scattered, Unole Jo did not quit until he
had them all safely gathered Into the ele

Florence lake, at the point where, the
treacherous old river Is burrowing through
the banks, quietly Ilk a rat, but dan
gerously like Its wont Is.
From long experience Skipper Redman
knows that It Is necessary to get up early
In the morning to defeat the tendency ot
the raging Missouri to "fudge" on th prop
erty along Its banks. "H it Is beginning
to break through', at that one spot thus
early In the season;" says Uncle Joe, "we
will see widespread destruction a little
May Destroy Carter Lake. '
After an Inspection of the spot where th
Missouri river Is threatening to make a
break through the bank, of Florence lake,
the city engineer's office Is fearful thst the
final outcome may be the practical de
struction of Carter lake. Councilman
Brucker, who was one of the Investigating
party on behalf of the city, believes the
only solution, to save Carter and Florence
lakes, Is for th government to change
the course of the river, from a point above
th pumping station at Florence.
"It Is a matter particularly for the con
sideration of, the Park board, the Illinois
Centrat'rallwsy, the county and the gov
ernmerjt, as I view It," said Mr. Brucker.
"The water company has, I understand,
already made preparations to meet this very
possible emergency by getting ready to ex
tend a pipe from the present Intake to
where the new channel of th river Is
likely to be after the expected raise in the
spring. If the thing evantuates according
to the-way It looks now, the Illinois Cen
tral railroad bridge may be left high and
dry, as well as the Florence pumping sta
tion. It appears to me the only real sal
vation for Carter lake and th territory
Immediately surrounding Is for th gov
ernment to take steps to change the chan
nel of the river. Otherwise we are bound
to see a break that will change th face
of the country out In that section. It Is
really a serious situation that confronts
us at that point." '
