(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Feb. l$.-(Speclal. Attorneys
for the Lincoln Traction company filed a
brief "with the State Railway commission
'yterday afternoon In opposition .. to the
plea of County Attorney Tyrrcl for a dis
solution of the merger of , the; two com
panies and to squeeze the water out of
the stock of the consolidated company,
The brief says . the oontenttorv. of the
p'alntlff Is that the stock Isfuo Is exces
sive and fraudulent. '1 No ' evidence, , how
ever, ;waa Introduced,-the brief ,ajs, to
show any defects In the, merger. . ,
The contention of the plaintiff .was that
the law requires the par value of ' the
stocks' and bonds Issued In A consolidation
shall not exceed the physical valuation or
cost of. construction and equipment; that
'the par value of the stock and bond issue
of the defendant exceeds the . physical
-valuation and la therefor illegal.' .
Th defendant conceded Jri the brief filed
.that the valuation of the property by the"
commission is based on replacement value
of the' physical property and original cost,
as controlling the earnings. ' the. defendant
contends that - the consolidation act au
thorises the constituent companies to agree
on tho Value of nie' railways aa going con
cerns and to Issue stock and bonds repre
senting such agreed value. ' ... '
The defendant argued that It bd violated
no law by making the merger., y a'

Tax Levy Election la Coster.
BROKEN BOW. Neb., Feu, l3.-Speclal.)
The question' of voting a S-mlll levy in
Custer county for the purpose of building'
a new court house to take the placa of
that burned some time ago is now upper
most in the minds of the people. The elec
tion Is called for March 1. and. it la thought
among the people here that the levy will
carry. While most counties find it neoea
sary to vote bonds for' court house pur
poses, the excellent financial condition in
Custer county makes it . possible to en
tirely wips out the debt with a 6-mlll levy
in one year. Some opposition has devel
oped In certain parts of thepounty, where
the division sentiment . is the strongest,
principally at, Calloway, Analey and Sar
gent, which towns have always been pros
pective county seats under proposed
division lines. A report has been circu
lated that the 6-mlll levy was to be made
on the actual value Instead of the assessed
value cf the county and that instead of
raising $,"5,000 for thla court .house, which
would be the amount . raised on the as
sessed valuation, ' that the levy 'on ' the
actus! value would raise five times that
amount. Ex-Supreme Judge' Silas A. Hoi
comb has come out In the local papers
with a signed statement that there is no
law whereby the levy could be made on
the actual valuation and that such pro
ceedings, would be absolutely, impossible.
This letter baa had great effect in straight
ening this feature of. the election in the
minds of the general public here.,
James Woods Hefaseel Divorce.
BROKEN BOW, Neb.. Feb. IS. (Special.)
District court tills week has mainly been
taken up with the noted divorce case of
James' Woods against' Mrs. Woods. This
Is one of the biggest cases of Its kind that
has ever been tried before the district
court of the county. Judge Wall of Loup
City and Sullivan A Squires of Broken
Bow appeared for the defendant, while
County Attorney N. T. Qadd and W. H.
Thompson of Orand Island were attorneys
for the plaintiff. Upwards of fifty., wit
nesses were brought into the case and in
attendance during the trial.. Mr. -and Mrs.
Woods, the principals, are between 60 and
TO veara of axe and have resided in the
county for a quarter of a century, their
home being near Merna, They have- al
ways been highly reaproted and havo a
family of three grown children. Much ot
the evidence Introduced waa of a. charac
ter that would hardly bear publication.
The testimony of the daughter waa par
ticularly effective . and caused many ayes
In the court room to dim with, tears, espe
cially those of her father, the plaintiff.
When the evidence waa in Judge Hostetler
said ' he would dispense with arguinept,
and after a few straightforward remarks
rendered a decision in favor of the de
fendant. . "

itcoid of four games won and aono host.
In the first twb 'contests of Hhe tour they

With the Ames game lust bight the
Coruhuskers played th,. l&Rt of their
scheduled championship games and now
have a record of six games won and two
los. Ames . has played six Of lta eight
games and has won tour of this number.
Its two remaining games are to he played
with Drake, a team that Has failed to win
a game in - the ' chart) blonalilp series, al
though It has played six of Its allotted
eight. So weak Is Drake that Antes is
practically certain of winning Its two re
maining games, with, that five, and" in
event that It dues It Will be tied with Ne
braska for the championship title of the
northern section of. the conference league.
A single Victory" ' by 1 Drake over Ames
would give Nebraska the championship,
but even the Cornhuskers have no hopes
that the Des Moines quintet can defeat
the fast Aggies and already they are fig
uring on playing another Berles.of games
with Ames to settle the championship
question, so that the northern winners can

Mar Play in Omaha.

that in case Ames and. Nebraska have to
play a second series, he would favor play
them in Omaha. The games will have to
take plaoe en a' neutral Iloor, and Omaha
seems to be the best place for a meeting
of the teams, if Ames defeats Drake thla
week, Nebraska and the Aggies will play
off their tie the following week. Manager
Eager said that the games, if played, will
take place cither at the gymnasium of the
Omaha .Young Men's. Christian association
or at the Omaha Aumtortu.v. ' . v. ' '
The Nebraska manager will Insist that
the games be played In a neutral floor,-and
III not consent to have his team go to
Ames. It is claimed that the Cornhuskers
were greatly handicapped by the small floor
at Ames In the games with the Aggies on
Friday and Saturday, and that thy would
have won had they , been on a fair-sized
floor. The game yesterday, was lost simply
because the Cornhuskers coftld not execute

Raps Fetich of
Course of Study
rupils of Today Overburdened by a
Conglomeration of Subjects They
A sharp criticism of stereotyped school
methods and the routine courses of study
was uttered by Prof. E. V. Graff, pr'nclpal
of the Omaha High school. In an address
before the Philosophical society yesterday.
Prof. Orsff totk ss his subject "The New
View Point In Education."
"Tho new, view point In education," de
clared Prof, d reft, "is that the purpose
of education Is to develop qualities that
will fit the student to meet the conditions
of life In this world. .
"The frequent critlolcm of School work
shows thst' Society Is demanding that the
schools should keep TCe with Its need.
Now subjects have been Introduced unlll
the pupils are overburdened. The 'course
of study' has become a fetich, and It hi
administered like a, dose of medicine.
"We do not need new subjects of study,
or more sublects," so mu,cj ,ss we need a
new view point In educational work. This
Implies a new method of educational diag
nosis, recognizing tho child as an orgnhlsm
to be developed by growth and epeSence
under guidance, not a receptacle for -canned
wisdom and assorted facts. r
'Our courses of study and pur teaching
are the results of the view point . The
schools were established to hand down a
body of knowledge -which society felt
should not be allowed to perlnh. Thai
original idea of 'learning' persists. A pup!l
may become a walking 'bicyclopcdla' aud
yet be of no service. Society always com.-s
back to the conception that It Is the func
tion of education to fit for life work."

it would be better to "dog it,"" which is the

Casey Moran, however. Is perhaps best
known Throughout the world because of
the most sublime fake which ' he worked
off while doing newspaper work. In
Alaska news ts far from plentiful and
there are periods when a man has plenty
Of time to dream. During one of these
brornldean periods Casey decided to dis
cover Noah's ark. He obtained a Bible
and a table of weights and measures,
found out from the former the size of
Mr. Noah's original boat In cubits and
with the aid of the latter turned cub'.ts
into feet and then he wrote his story. It
was a graphic account of the story of
the, remnants of Noah'a menagerie, -which
waa alleged td have been found by the
Indian. ' ' Crtrw creek. He even ' de-:
scribed the-petrified remains pf, various
vftebra'te'snnd thesVertcbrates weTe al
ways, in pairs.. The story waa aent.. to
a Seattle paper originally and was there
copied into practically every newspaper
in the United States and , was -subsequently
translated into about every known
language, and now Casey Moran Is in
Washington. If he remains here long it
is a safe prediction that some of the
yarns sent out from Alaska to. the na
tional capital will be startlers. He is
already telttng some stories of his expe

"Up in Dawson In the old days," said
Mr. Moran with every appearance of
quoting the truth, "there wasa Canadian
Justice named Constantlne. He was the
most wonderful law officer that1 ever
graced a ench. But, holy smoke, how
he could sWear.. This Judge Constantlne
had an ugly habit of fining people
promiscuously, so to speak. ,1 happened
to be In his court one day wheA Pete
Mulcahy was on trial for an assault upon
Belle Mead. After listening to the evi
dence Judge Constantlne fined Pete 1 25
and costs. The cost was $6. Pete pulled
out a $50 bill. The Judge looked Into
his desk and could not find any change.
He thereupon increased the fine to $50
without coats and kept the entire bill.
Then he turned to Belle, whose face was
somewhat disfigured, and said to her;
'You have Just come in here with all that
blood on your face to create sympathy
In this court. I fine you $10 and warn
you to keep out of Pete's place and then,
you won't get into no row.' This seemed '
tq be so ridiculous I smiled, and there- '
upon, the Judge turned to me, called mo
up to. the desk and fined me $10 for con- ;
tempt of court."
I.lmbrrKer Cheese by Mall.
One of the loudest protestors against the
present rate Of postage on newspapers ana
magazines Is a member of congress who
owns a cheese factory. Several years ago
this congressman sent a congressional box
to Washington addressed to himself upon
which was a government frank. A congres
sional box, well filled weighs In the neigh
borhood of 200 pounds. It came free through
the malls. The two colored messengers car
ried It Into the house post office by the
handle, holding their noses with the other
hand, and one of them remarked,. "Bosa,
there is certainly something (lead in this
yere box." It was opened and found to
contain nearly 200 pounds of Hmberger
cheese made In the factory of the con
gressman who thinks that the second class
postage rate is altogether too low and that
newspapers and magazines should pay
more for the disseminating of literature
through the mails.

The Inquiry of the federal authorities into
the high cost of food is said to have led
to the discovery that there are 36,000,000
eggs in cold storage at the present time.
This reminds a western New Yorker of an
attempt made by a firm of cheese makers
in East Aurora, N. Y., soma years ago to
eorner the egg market. They bought (0,000
dozen and stored them in their cheese
warehouse which was fitted up for cold
storage. Later there was a slump In the
lemon market and they bought a thousand
boxes of lemons at -a very low figure which
they also stored In the same warehouse.
Three months later when they were ready
to sell their eggs they discovered that
tho' eggs contained a combination of
welsh rarebit and lemonade. In other
words, the strong smell of the cheese and
tha oil from the lemons had penetrated
every egg ahell to such an extent that not
one of the 60,000 dozen waa fit for human
food. That firm haa never bought eggs or
lemons since that day.
