Criticism of Neighboring Cities Re
mits in Loss of Business.
oaae ScrloaV Talk of Kstabllsfcla
Oasorahls) of lress ol Capital
tl(f fiovrraor'a Silver
From a Staff ' Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, May 15. (Spclal.)-A serious
juojstlon discussed by several memben of
he Commeiclal club during the noon hour
Mccntly, wis the advisability of selecting
a censor to pass on the news to be pun
ished In the local pap. rS regarding the
action of the citizens of neighboring towns.
t Has been the custom for many year for
certain parties in Lincoln to attempt to
manage the affairs and regulate the ac
tion of the neighboring towns ax Well as
the capital city, and it has Just dawned
tipon, certain business and professional
men -here that the practice Is not helping
the city. So these parties, who have given
Aha matter some thought, hare concluded
that .perhaps front a business standpoint
it would be better for the newspapers here
to keep their hands off of the affairs of
the citizens of the close-around towns In
sofar as relates to their attitude toward
the liquor question.
As soon' as Beatrice voted in saloons,
after; two years . of drouth, the Lincoln
paper began to declare there was a ter
rible condition In that thriving Utile city.
Then Crete waa held up as a second Have
lock and was said the place of the
ruin of many Lincoln persons. The Lincoln
drunks .w.ere not. blanked at all.
CHIma Fifth! Bark.
Beatrice fought back. And so did Crete
and other towns that are being maligned
are fighting back. It Is very evident that
business In the capital city has been
truck and struck hard, for the squeal
that went up from the Commercial club
members has been heard all over town.
Thooa discussing the matter Insisted that
the papers discontinue writing of Beatrice,
Crete and Wllber and look after Lincoln.
The reports of conditions In these town
being; written at long distance, It has been
ensy for those abused to answer back
hard, and they have done It. So It Is very
probable that hereafter the papers here
will confine themselves to attacks on
Omaha. In the meantime Lincoln came
near losing a very necessary and hard
working official last week because of the
activity of the various clubs In criticising
and offering suggestions. This official has
much to do with the work of building for
the future Lincoln, and being well equipped
In his line and of long experience, it was
his belief that he knows what he is doing
when he does anything.
The Clubs Deride.
This official's experience as-related to a
Reporter for The Bee was something like
"When 1 finally decide what should be
done, the matter is put up to the council
and Is endorsed. Work then progresses.
Then along comes the clubs. They meet
and condemn the idea. Their criticism Is
passed on to the council and the council
gigs back and I am left high and dry. It
will take several months again to get the
council to even consider the proposition."
It Is this official's idea and it la the Idea
of many business men of Lincoln that the
time la here when the city for its own
protection should elect officers who are not
afraid to go ahead and do something re
gardless of the various clubs and of critics.
Several business men Insist that they elect
officials to do the work of the city and
take this responsibility off of their hands,
but instead of that whenever a question
comes up about which there Is a possibility
of a difference of opinion, It needs must
be passed on by all the clubs, before any
thing Is done, with the result that the
city Is always In a turmoil.
The next great. qtTestlon to come Before
the people for settlement will be whether
Wyuka cennetery shall be open after S
o'clock at night so that persona In Lin
coln may go there and spend a quiet hour,
feeling perfectly at home, or whether It
shall remain closed after that hour and
thus prevent a possible desecration of the
place. This waa the leading question
last summer and It has not yet been settled
Celebrate Silver Wedding-.

Llacola Industrial Exposition.
During the week of the Editorial associ

city Is a real live one, viewed from a busi
ness standpoint The merchants have
responded generously to the Invitation to
make exhibits and the auditorium will' be

GRAND ISLAND, Neb., May 13.-(Spe-clal.)
Sheriff James Dunkel returned yes
terday from Denver with Mrs. Rosa Wil

teen miles west of here, in his custody.
They were" accompanied by Mr. Wilcox,
husband of the woman.
Wilcox Is a prominent and wealthy farmer,
Jessen is a cattle buyer and has had many
business dealings with Wilcox, often being
at his home. It appears that Jessen alien
ated the affections of Mrs. Wilcox, who has
five children, the oldest almost of age,
and that shortly after his departure from
Cairo, after a wrangle with a member of
the Wilcox household, Mrs. Wilcox came to
this city, ostensibly on a shopping trip, and
then disappeared.
The couple was traced to Denver and the
husband and the sheriff followed. Denver
detectives located them at a rooming house,
it is said, and the eouple Was prompetty ar
rested. Jessen Is 29 years of age and Mrs.
Wilcox Is several years his senior.
A reconciliation has been effected and
Jessen will not be prosecuted provided he
keeps his promise to leave the country and
pays the costs. It was finally arranged that
Mr. Wilcox should set up an establishment
In this city and Jessen should leave.

Creig-hton University Scientist Says
Comet is Harmless.
Observers May Possibly Ue (illrapses
of the Brilliant. Trailing; Vleltnnt
at Any Time from Early Mora
to Mldalght Wednesday.
Some time Wednesday night, probably
between 10 o'clock and midnight, the earth
will pass through the nebulous tall of
the sky rover first tagged by Prof. Halley.
"But there Is absolutely no danger of
the earth being hurt," says Father W. F.
Rigge, the astronomer of Crelghton uni
versity. "And please emphasize that statement,
for It Is really surprising how many people
thcie aie Who seem to expect serious con
sequences. For their fears there is hot
the slightest basis In fact, and uny ner
vousness on the Score of possible danger
should be allayed st once."
Father Rigge says that If Wednesday
morning Is clear obesrvers may possibly
see a big or little streak of light, similar
to one of the shoots . or beams of the
jurors borealls. If Wednesday should, be
an extraordinarily bright clay, the comet
may be seen near the sun; that Is, provided
the comet Itself Is in the humor or position
to shine effulgently. On tnis proposition.
Father Rigge and other astronomers are
very cautious In committing theselves, and
the Crelghton scientist frankly says that
everybody who hits been Viewing the spark
ling visitant from the purely scientific
standpoint is wondering Just what develop
ment Wednesday will bring forth. On the
possibility of danger to the earth, though,
they are all agreed there is nothing to be
JUHt how much of the comet can be seen
Wednesday evening, or for how long it
will be In view, will depend on conditions

power of the visitant will have much to
do with its mi( lifestatlon to earth dwellers.
Pale Lunas light will also cut considerable
figure, but whether searchers see or do
not see the comet,' we may sit tight In a
feeling of security from danger.

part scarcely less powerful under the re
gime of King George and Queen Mary.
Mrs. Astor has been living very quietly
here and will be looked upon with favor
by Queen Mary. That Is also the position
of the duches of Marlborough. In the case
of the last named, she is Interested in a
number of philanthropies in which Queen
Mary has shown considerable interest.
The queen realizes the difference of her
husband, who lacks the social brilliance
and the courteous diplomacy of his late
father. No one realizes better than Queen
Mary that the king could never shine
socially as did King Edward.
King George likes the seclusion ' of his
country residence, his library and his
harmless little hobbles. In this respect
the queen may have a dual object. The
tradesmen, will be. gratified at her de
termination to make the English court a
brilliant center of gaiety and life for it
means the unlimited purchase of fine garb.
In this manner, the queen shows fine at
tention to her husband's subjects and at
the same time becomes the real queen in
fashion, as well aa in power.
Americans living in London complain of
the dullness which has prevailed since the
king's death. To add to the general gloom
the weather haa been cold with rain storms.
In fact King Edward's death is making
itself felt in every direction and many
Americans here are preparing to go to the
continent late this month.
