an Invitation to attend a banquet to be

that he would sign a county option bill, he
might have been renominated. If he had

W. R. Mellor, secretary of the State
Board of Agriculture, has returned from
Chicago, where be attended the meeting
of the National Live Stock association.
Governor hhallenbergwr, C. H. Rudse,
George Hervey and other Nebraskans at
tended the meeting, and according to Mr.
Mellor, Nebraskans were pretty much In
evidence In the association's affair a
"Governor Shallenberger spoke to the
(Shorthorn Breeders' association, of which
association he Is a director," said Mr.
Mellor, "and his address was the feature
of the meeting. The governor stood out
far and away ahead of any other speak
ers and the Nebraskans who heard him
felt proud of their governor."
An invitation was extended to the Na
tional Berkshire association to meet here
next year and Mr. Mellor believes the In
vitation will be accepted. Nebraska at Its
state fair last year had more hogs on ex
hibit than any state except Iowa, and as
luwa got the show and congress last year,
he believes Nebraska's chanaes are good
for next year.
People Score Ouce.
The railway commission has granted per
mission to the Nebraska Telephone com
pany to reduce Its rates at Fair bury to'
agree with the rates charged by the local
independent company. It was brought out
at the hearing that the independent com
pany charged flX for telephones where
there were more than ten subscribers and
11.60 where there were less than teu. But
It appears that where five or more persons
were subscribers with the expectation of
increasing their number to ten, the leaser
rate was given thern. The Nebraska com
pany asked permission to decrease Its
rates to meet the competition and when
the hearing started the Fairbury company
offered to Increase Its rates If the Nebraska
company would withdraw Its application
for a reduction. This the Nebraska com
pany declined to do and the hearing went
on with the above result.
Crabtreo to Appoint.
James W. Crabtree, just elected state
superintendent. Is expected to announce to
morrow the names of the members of his
office force. In tbe superintendent's office
there are twelve people employed regu

times during the year.
A Id rich to Shake Pi am tree.
Word has been received from David City
that Governor-elect Aldrtch will be In Lin
coln Monday, at .which time he will name
a bunch of appointees.
The supreme court has granted a writ of
habeas corpus against Sheriff Hoagland of
Lancaster county In behalf of O. J. King
and B. T. Page, theoretically in the custody
of tbe county official for having violated
the pure food law. The writ Is made re
turnable on January S, at which time the
sheriff, through Ills counsel, the attorney
general of the state, will show cause to the
court why he should retain the custody of
the plaintiffs. It Is probable that attorneys
on both sides of the question will file briefs
covering the whole question In controversy
and the supreme court will lay down an
Interpretation of the pure food law provi
sions and their constitutionality.
The case Is a test brought by agreement
between the pure food commissioner and
the National Biscuit company to try out
the provisions of the law which demands
that the net weight must be stamped on all
packages of certain foodstuffs, among them
cereals. The food commissioner Insisted
that the National Biscuit company stamp
the net weight on lu packages of biscuits.
The company, through Its attorney, de
clared the law invalid and asked a chance
to bare the question settled. This was
agreed, te and the local manager for the
cracker concern and one of the leading
grocer were by agreement made the
means of reaching the supreme court ith
the case. The application for a writ of
habeas corpus was filed In supreme court,
which has original Jurisdiction In habeas
corpus cases, in order to avoid the tedious
oeiays or the lower courts, both sldee
agreeing that a decision of the highest
tribunal would be beneficial.

STRIKE OF CANAL WORKMEN
Liberality of tbe GoTerameat Falls
to Satisfy ' Some ef tbe
The American workmen on the Panama
canal are hard to please. Judging by the
fact that the boilermakers have struck
for an Increase In wages, for an eight
hour day,-from 66 to 75 cents an hour, and
for a vacation of six weeks with full pay.
President Taft must have been correct
In telling them that they are the best
treated workmen in the world already, for
besides a standard wage from 10 to W
cents higher than In the same trades In
the United States, they receive from the
government sleeping quarters, fuel, lights,
medical attention, nursing and exceptional
facilities for amusement and recreation
all for nothing. Their food is furnished
by the government at substantially the
cost price. ,
According to official reports, the gov
ernment on the Isthmus runs the Hotel
Tlvoll, eighteen Isthmian canal commis
sion hotels, nineteen European laborers'
messes and twenty common laborers'
kitchens. The Hotel Tlvoll waa run last
year at the nominal profit of $4,674. In
the eighteen "line" hotels, t,17,461 meals
were served at SO cents a meal. The cost
of supplies per meal was M.87 cents, and
the cost of preparing and serving raised
the cost to M cents. The government made
no profit whatever, and was content If
the employes served at these hotels were
satisfied with their food. The total num
ber of rations furnished in the European
meases was 1.0BZ.IS7. at a cost of about 17
cents per ration. The total revenue from
the "line" hotels, messes and kitchens
waa H.3oO,6T4, a decrease of fldS.Saj over the
previous year. The subsistence depart
ment as a whole was probably run at a
loss to the government.
There Is an elaborate system of free
club houses In the canal sone for the
benefit of the employee. In the last fiscal
year a new one waa built at Gatun at a
ooat of lil.SIX and a smaller one at Porto
Bello at a coat of $4,426. There were four
other club-houses already erected at vari
ous points along the line of the canal.
The canal commission appropriated
til for the malatenance of these club
houses. If a workman falls 111. he la sent
to a government heapltal and taken oars
of by the best physicians and nurses.
without any extra cost to himself. So ex
cellent Is the sanitation and medical serv
ice that last year there were only seventy
six deaths among the several thousands
of Americans at work on the Isthmus, and
only thirty-nine bad to be daported as
unfit for service In the tropics.
In spite of all these benefits, ro excep
tional In character, the government finds
constant difficulty In keeping the so-
called "gold force," that Is, the employ
paid In gold, recruited to the required
number. In the last fiscal year there
a t re 1.114 changes In the total force of
b.IZZ, or more than GO per cent. The
conditions of labor In the tropics I
doubtless the cause of this chronlo unrest,
and the tendency to strike exhibited by
men earning over $5 a day, who demand
a vacation of six weeks without lots of
pay. Indicates that It Is quite hopeless for
the government to make Its employes In
tbe canal sons perfectly contented. It
lite pensions should be offered every gov
ernment employe In canal work, the pen
sions to begin with the completion of the
great work, the grievances would pile up
faster than ever. Pensions? The United
States may yet be called upon to pay
them to the canal builders. Springfield

non-employment respectable and self-respecting."
