of the Grand Army of the Republic they
were at once recognised by tho old com
rides, many of whom recalled the sunny

women accepted the gift and expressed
their deep obligations for the thoughtful
ness of Colonel Maher, as well as that of
his southern friends, some of whom were
his comrades In wearing the blue In '98.

Senator Burkett paid high tribute to
the sacrifices and heroism of the old sol
dlers In the hour of the nation's peril and
also to their patriotism and good cltlien-
shlp during the succeeding years of peace,
and stated that he favored a dollar-a-day
pension, because It was Impossible for the
old soldier to get his evidence to prove up

progressive legislation that the nation has
.ever enacted, when the human soul in its

pointed out as illustrations of progressive
legislation, the act for the resumption of

Continuing, he declared that "law la of

with the march of social and Industrial de
velopment," and went on: "The railroad
magnate complains of too much legislation,
overlooking tho fact that In these fifty
years his mileage has grown from 30,0)0
to more than 220.000. Twenty years ago the
railroads were carrying 4flO.000.000 tons of
freight; last year they carried l,4.000,00i)
tons. Then they required 17.000 passenger
cars; today they require 30.ono.000 rasrenger
cars; then 800.00U frelsht cars; today more
than 1.750,000 freight cars. Fifty years a-ro
It took a mighty big railroad to reach
across a state, and none ventured across a
state line. Today those old stato railroads
sre consolidated and from doing business
In a single state, they are doing business
In many stater. The law that keeps pace
with that evolution Is not socialistic In
creed nor onarchlstlo In practice, but Is
progressive legislation. It Is not because
all railroad rates are exorbitant that we
have rate laws, nor because all combina
tions of capital arc Indecent and monopo
listic that wo have anti-trust laws, but,"
declared the' senator, "unlawful rebates and
discriminations and overcharges have been
practiced and the great transportation pay
ing public were entitled to be defended
against them, and that Is why congress
passed the railway rate bill. Unrighteous
combinations of competing lines have been
made, the public has been plundered in un
just stock and bond Issues, and that Is why
we spent four months In the recent session
of congress trying to prohibit by law
the enmbtant'on of competing lines of rail
road and to prevent tho high-handed manlp-
latlon of stocks and bonds. When Wall
street gets nervous, our answer shall be
that It Is the outgrowth of necessity to
guard against a condition of monopoliza
tion and confiscation that was unheard of
ntil within the past decade."
No riaoe for I.ngararda.
Continuing, he said that in his opinion.
a man had outlived his usefulness, either
In publlq life or out of It, who did not recog
nize the change of conditions and the
growth of governmental function and gov
ernmental duty, and said that there was
no more sense In undertaking to run Amer
ica within the limitations of last genera
tion's interpretations than In confining
commerce and transportation to the teach
ings of economics of the primitive condi
tion of last century. He said that It was
because the publlo mind was progressive
In 1860 that the civil war was fought; that
while the country had been raised to a
higher moral plane then by the results of
that war, that by the results of this great
Industrial war that was going on in the
publlo minds, the country was to be raised
to a higher commercial and industrial
He spoke of the rights of labor and the
recognition of the laboring man that must
come under the changed conditions, and de
clared that the question of labor and capi
tal today was an entirely different one
from what the fathers debated half a cen
tury ago. He pointed out that In morals
and In habits of the people there had been
growth, and that as society developed
and Ideals . Improved, social regulations
must be multiplied.
He said that conservation of natural re
sources was a comparatively new question.
and that every man must recognize that we
people would fail. In our responsibilities to
the generations to com unless we should
preserve to them untramineled and unap
propriated by private greed the great
natural resources with which a generous
God endowed his children.
He said that there had always been diffi
culty between extremes. Some men would
stumble and fall and fuss and fume for
fear the government would do something
that It ought not to do; that strict con
structionists and some politicians would
always be In the way, but he said they
were illustrated by the men who stayed at
home fifty years ago, hired substitutes for
the draft and then found fault with the
way the war was conducted.
Patriotism Not Dead.
Continuing along this line, he said, 'The
functions and prerogatives of federal and
state authority are as quick to the minds
of some men today In some of these great
questions as they were two or three times
In the last century. There are Beechers
and Garrison and Calhouns and Doug
lasses In these day. There are those who
would use the constitution to .an end, and
those who would Ignore It for an end.
There are those who would set It aside
and there are thoso who would set It In
the way. There are those who would dery
It. and thoso who would make It a fetich
of inaction. There are those who think
that the government Is derelict and
thoae who claim that it Is too strenu
ous. There are those who want the gov
ernment to do everything and those who
want tho government to do nothing. But,
between the two," said the senator, "Just
as there did In 1860, there stands today the
great mass of honest and courageous and
progressive American citizenship. It is
directed as then by that high sense of
public duty that fears no foo and shrinks
from no responsibility."
' Private High School Successful.
' State Superintendent Bishop has just re
turned from a visit to the private chool
conducted for the benefit of the children of
J. J. Johnson and hi neighbors, living six
miles from Colon, in Saunders county. Mr.
Johnson employs a young woman graduate
of the state university for teaoher and
pays her the regulation salary paid to high
school teacher. Twelve pupil are now
enrolled, Including five of tho Johnson chil
dren. The regular high school course Is
being taught. The school Is taught In a
room fitted up In the Johnson home.
Mr. Johnson met Mt. Bishop In his auto
mobile and showed him over one of the
most modern and Improved farms in that
section of the state. One of the show places
on the farm Is a corn crib with a capacity
of 11.000 bushels, which Is fitted up with
modern appliances for loading and unload
ing the grain. The place is called the
Cherry' Hill farm. Mrs. Johnson wa for
merly 'a student of the state university.
Mr. Bishop brought back with him many
photographs taken of the home and school.
Believes Accommodation Too Costly.
Dr. WaKott of the State university ha
complained to the railway commission that
he and a crowd of students were charged
18 cents for riding on a Union Pacific
motor car a distance of about four miles,
Into Lincoln. The crowd stopped tho c.r
and rode Into town, paying cash fare. Dr.
WaOcott desires the commission to say
whether the chargo should be only I cents
a mllo. . He will file a formal complaint
unless tho commission gives him reason for
the extra charge mado by tho railroad, so
Believed Agent Lost 9t,0OO.
William O'Grady ct al. have appealed to
the supreme court from a decision of the
district court of Furnas county In a suit
to recover 11.600, alleged to liavo been lost
In a grip which was left on a Burlington
train. The brief sets out that O'Orady and
wife and nine children were on their way
from Superior to Haider. They were not
ted to traveling, so believed the agent at
Superior when he tort them they would
not have to change car3, but would be
taken straight through to Halgler. Upon
tho train reaching McCook, shortly after
midnight, tho family was awakened, so the
brief says, and told to get off the train,
which all the member did. Mra. O'Grady
then gathered the nine children about her
and, taking an Inventory of her effect dis
covered tho grip containing tho 11,600 wa
missing. She attempted to board the train,
but was refused admission to the car by
the porter, even though she Informed him
that she was after her grip. Tho rallroud
company was notified of the loss, but no
return was mado of the property. In the
district court tho railroad filed a demurrer
tu the petition, setting up that It did not
contain sufficient fact to set out a cause
of action. This was sustained and the ap
peal is rrom this decision.

LEIGH, Neb.,. May 80.-(Speclal Tele
gram.) Dressed like a farmer and parad
ing in the disguise of a Christian of nearly
every denomination, a middle aged man,
with a 'club foot on hi right leg, drifted
into town last Saturday and proceeded to
pull off a clever grafting tunt. He first
went to the home of W. I. Walling and
asked that gentleman if he was a member
of the Methodist church. Assured that' he
was. the stranger. Inquired about a family
whom he claimed had moved here about a
year ago and had also Joined the Metho
dist church. He claimed that he had for
gotten the name of this family, but that
they were friends et his and that - he
wanted to go to them for aid. He stated
that he had a horse and buggy stolen from
him and that he wanted to go to his home,
which he claimed was at Lexington.
The man secured no money from Mr Wal
ling and went on to other homes professing
to be a Catholic at the home of a Catholic
family, a Christian Scientist to a young
woman of that faith and was a Congrega
tlonallst when he called on Rev. Mr. Sealey
of the Congregational church. ' He gave his
name an 11. W. Brown and told hi bard-
luck story in such a straightforward man
ner that Rev. Mr. Sealey decided ho would
let him have S3, which -he thought would
be sufficient to take him to Lexington.
When ho went to write him out a check
the stranger requested that ho make It for
83.50, stating that he might be delayed at
Humphrey. This request Mr. Sealey granted.
Immediately upon hi departure Mr. Sealey
became suspicious and upon investigation
found that the fellow had a different .story
for every victim. Rev. Mr. Sealey called up
Lexington by phone, but could not
find a single person who knew him. He
then had the man arrested for obtaining
money under false pretenses and Justice
Walling sentenced . him to thirty days in

era of tha noted "P-O" cattle ranch north
of this city, are preparing to resist the
plans of State Veterinarian W. F. Pflaeg-
inr. who recently took nossesslon of the
cattle of the "P-O' ranch and dipped
them, and who now Intend to.aell omo
of the cattle to defray tha expense of
the work. It 1 alleged the cattle of tho
ranch company were very scabby and,
their condition endangered other- - live
stock In the vicinity. The statutes giv
ing the stat voterlnarlan authority to
take possession of live stock, when their
owners refuse to Yteat It In accordance
with ordr from Ms department are
very plain, but the company will prob
ably test their constitutionality anyway.
The outcome will be watched wltn Inter
eat, for the state authorities have had
trouble with other cattle concern in the
state, and If the' state veterinarian Is
upheld In thl Instance there will be
little trouble In the future.
