LINCOLN. March M. (Special.) - The
statement made by F. W. Brown, former
mayor of Lincoln, regarding the democratic
party, and county option. Is an Indication
of the division of the party on that 1.mi
and of the, trouble Mr. Bryan la going to
have to pack the toad cn the water wagon.
Mayor Brown said:
"In-m opinion a majority of the demo
cratic' party la opposed to county option
and Ita Insertion In the democratic plat
form would Jeopardize the success of tha
This would Indicate that Mayor Brown,
like Mayor Iahlman. had come to the
parting of the wsys with Mr. Bryan. For
many yeafs Mr. Frown ha been a close
personal and political friend of the presi
dential candidate and In 1 he represented
Mr. Bryan on the resolutions committee of
tha democratic national convention. He
followed this up with a tour of the coun
try on the Bryan train and waa In fact the
manager of that trip, having authority to
pasa upon the qualification of the parties
who desired to ride on the special car.
Aa Mayor Brown Is a real democrat, his
decision that county option In the platform
would Jeopardise the euccessof the ticket
means that he will work to keep count;
option out of the platform. Bo It Is a
safe guess to say he will be lined up fight
ing the Bryan decree.

W. D. Champlaln, a conductor on the

prosecuted for charging F. H. Dunham
more than I centa a mile for riding on his

Beatrice the conductor charged him 70
cents In addition to the 5S cents he had
to pay for the rebate check given when
cash fare Is paid. Dunham objected, as
he had paid only CO cents going from
Beatrice to Mayberry, but the conductor
Insisted on him paying the extra fare.
The penalty for being convicted of
charging more than 2 cents a mile on

LINCOLN, March a. -t Special.) From
forty persons to whom have been Issued
certificates to practice optometry by the
State Board of Optometry, without ex
amination. Governor Shallenberger has re
ceived objections to the wording on the
The law provide that persons who have
practiced optometry for two years prior
to the enactment of the optometry law
are entitled to a certificate of exemption
from the examination to be given by the
state board, upon a proper ahowlng on
the part of the applicants. Instead of Is
suing such exemption certificate the board
has Issued a certificate to practice op
tometry upon which Is printed In red
letters these words:
"The board does not guarantee the com
petency of the holder of this certificate.
It Is Issued without examination In ac
cordance with the law."
Printed on another part of the certifi
cate In red letters are these words:
"The law requires that thla certificate
be displayed In a conspicuous place In your
The first paragraph Is not only printed
on the certificate, but Is also stamped
thereon with a rubber stamp.
The certificates are signed by C. C. Mc
Leese, president; J. S. Huteson. secretary,
and Frits Hoefer.
It Is to the financial advantage of the
board that every person desiring to prac
tice optometry take an examination, aa
the fees provided by law are aa follows:
For examination, 115; for a certificate of
registration, $10; for a certificate of ex
emption, $5; yearly license, $1.
Those making the protest Insist that the
wording on the certificates Issued to them
simply discredits them. They hold that
such certificates would force them to take
the examination, which would Increase the
Income of the examiners, as they are paid
out of the feea collected. The exemption
certificates net the board of examiner
only $5. or one-fifth as much as do the
giving of examinations.
The state society recently condemned the
action of the board In the wording of the
certificates and a copy of the resolutions
were sent to Secretary Huteaon. His reply
Indicated that if the aggrieved persons de
sired relief It would be up to them to go
So complaints have been piling up on
Governor Shallenberger to the extent that
the matter was referred .to the attorney
general. Mr. Thompson Is now preparing
a letter that the board of secretaries has
no authority for Issuing such a certificate,
but It must Issue certificates of exemption,
setting out that the holder is exempt from
taking the examination.

three members appointed by the governor.

serter from the regular army at Fort Rus
Doty is a aon of Mrs. L. Doty, who re
sides In Albany, N. Y. The family has been
wealthy and Is prominent. Leaving1 his
home several years ago. Doty drifted west,
making his way mostly on freight trains,
and after visiting many of the large cities
In the middle states, he finally joined the
regular army and was stationed at Fort
Little was heard of him at home during
his life at the military post and about last
September his letters suddenly ceased alto
gether, which was the time he departed
from the post.
A few months later a man answering
Doty'a description was killed In the railroad
yards In Ravenna, N. T., while he was
stealing a ride on a freight train. His
mother, hearing of the death, immediately
had the body exumed. She and another
son Identified It as Arthur Doty and the
body was reburied In the family cemetery.
Next an Insurance company paid Mrs.
Doty n.OUO on a policy made payable to
her. While mourning the loss of the prodi
gal the mother received a letter from him
Informing her that he was working In the
Burlington shops in this city. This sudden
turn of affairs put the family In a decidedly
perplexing condition, for If he should ever
return home they thought they would be stroyed
liable to prosecution for accepting the In
surance while he was living and the family
would be aubjected to shame and disgrace.
Mrs. Doty Immediately wrote to her son
and implored him to keep under cover and
under no conditions to return home. When
Doty received the letter he seemed to con
sider the mtx-up a good Joke and showed
the letter to his fellow workmen in the
shops and also to his room mates In the
Hotel Perkins. This was the clue that
ultimately led to his arrest and h'.s delivery
to Fort Crook.
When the young man was examined at
Fort Crook a scar was found on his foie

Dr. Pierce's medicines, the makers of which print
every ingredient entering into; them upon the bottle

daily (rowing in favor. No Sbcbtj. No Deception.
Tbe composition ot Dr. Pierce' b medi

being desirous of having tbe search

Bis formulae, being confident that the better the composition ot
these medicines is known the more mill their great curative
merits be recognised.
BeinjF wholly made of (he active medicinal principles extracted from native
forest roots, by exset processes original with Dr. Pierce, and without the us
of a drop of alcohol, triple-refined and ehemicatly pure glycerine beinj used in
stead in extracting and preserving the eurative virtues residing in the' root
employed, these medicines are entirely free from the objection of doing harm
by creating aa appetite for either alcoholio beverages or habit -forming drugs.
Examine the formula on their bottle-wrappers the same as sworn to by
Dr. Pierce, and you will find that hit "Golden Medical Diseovery." the great
blood-purifier, stomach tonie and bowel regulator the medicine which, while
not recommended to cure consumption io its advanced stages (no medicine will
do that) yet s run all those catarrhal conditions of head and throat, weak

which, if neglected or badly treated lead up to and finally terminate in coo
