capital to have a conference with Governor
Hhallenberger concerning the executive
mansion and other Incidentals necessary to
the peace and comfort of the governor.
These were tha matters which the outgoing
governor had the fullest Information upon,
but upon which the Incoming Kovernor,
having been nothing more thnn a mere
state senator, was eadly lacking In, Infor
mation. The governor-elect had determined to
ipend his day in Lincoln Incognito, but he
wore no niaok. and the horde of hungry
ones in Lincoln, who had had no fair
chance since election time, bore down upon
lilm, and he was forced to take refuse In
the hotel. The hotel people valiantly sup
ported him, and declared he wan not there,
but half a hundred men patiently waUed In
the lobby, knowing by some occult power,
that the report of absence was tintrue.
Even when he escaped and went to the
governor's office, they followed him and
waited In the reception room for his com

the same city ready to bear testimony to
the worth of F. J. Buck of Wlsner, who
aspires to be deputy oil Inspector for the

seems to be considerable competition. Also

Redaction to Nhlppers.
The Burlington railroad received from the
railway commission the authority to aver
age the charges per car in shipments of
more than one carload In the same train
by tha same dealer. In the past, companies
hare charged extra where the weight per
car waa above the maximum, and full car
load rates where the weight fell below the
maximum allowed. In this way a shipper
sending several loads to market waa done
an Injustice. Under the provision granted
by the commission, tha Burlngton may now
average a full shipment of stock and if
the average js below tha maximum car
load weight. It will be allowed to charge
the shipper merely car rates. The order
will he effective from all Nebraska points
to South Omaha. The averaging will only
bo for the same clause of stock, hogs, and
rattle, from the same shipper not being
averaged with each otlier. The railroad
made the application vnluntarlly.

that the office, together with all those
connected with It, be taken out of politics,

CAMBRIDGE. Mass, Dec. 8-The de
fense In the trial of Hsttle I-e Blans. on
trial for the murder of Clarence F. Glover,
opened wtlh sensations today.
The, Junior counsel for the defense. A.
Farley Brewer, declared In his opening ad
dress the defense would show some one
beside the prisoner had the opportunity,
the motive and the ability to commit the
crime, and when Melvln M. Johnson, senior
counsel for the girl, who had sufficiently
recovered from the illness that attacked
him yesterday, to take part In today's pro
ceedings, called the first witness, the
crowd In the court room was surprised to
hear the lawyer ask District Attorney
HlKElns to take the stand.
"1 do not know of anything I have done,"
said the district attorney, "but I will leave
the matter entirely to the court,"
The Jury was sent from the room and
Mr. Johnson addressed the court.
Mr. Johnson explained that he wished to
examine the district attorney to show great
bias and interest on the part of Seymour
Glover, one of the brothers of the mur
dered man, and a witness for the prosecu
tion, and, secondly, to show thnt the
prosecution had done everything possible
to block the defense In preparing its case.
Mr. Johnson snld he desired to show
through the district attorney that the gov
ernment omitted to" call certain material
The district attorney denied the state
ments of the opposing counsel.
Judge Bond ruled that the district attor
ney need not take the stand.
The Jury was recalled and the case pro
ceeded, with John W. Kyte of St. Peters
8., member of Parliament from Rich
mond county and the county prosecutor, as
he first witness. West Arlchat, Hattle's
former home. Is in Mr. Kyte's district.
Mr. Kyte was asked if Hattle's reputa-
on was that of a "person peaceable, moral
and law abiding," and he answered, "Excellent."
Abraham LeBlanc, father of the prisoner.
testified that he was the father of nine
teen children and that with the exception
of Hattle and two other sisters all lived at
home. Hattle, he said, had been to school
only six months and first went out to
work when shei was 10 years of age. She
was a good girl while she lived at home.
Mrs. Kate Sampson of Auburndale, a half
aunt of Hattle, testified that Mrs. Glover
visited her In Auburndale and told her of
the incident of Glovar and Hattle In the
bathroom. Mrs. Glover was very angry
tho witness said, and, pounding the table
with her fist, told Mrs. Sampson that she
had no revolver herself, but would buy
one and shoot her husband.
Mrs. Glover Threatened Hnsband
Mrs. Glover told Mrs. Sampson at this
Interview, the witness testified, that she
had grabbed Hattle by the throat and had
beaten her. Mrs. Sampson said Mrs
Glover had repeated her threat to kill
Glover three times and Mrs. Glover told
the witness It was Impossible for her to
keep a servant girl In the house on ac
count of her husband's advances towards
On another occasion, J.ha witness testl
fied, Mrs. Glover brought Hattle out to
see her, for the purpose of having Hattle
make a confession. In order to hasten the
confession, Mrs. Sampson said, Mrs. Glover
struck Hattle under the Jaw with her
clenched fist. Another time, Mrs. Glover
told the witness, her hand was swollen
from beating Hattle.
Under cross-examination Mrs. Sampson
persisted In her story of the threats of
Mrs. Glover to kill her husband and of
her striking Hattle. Hattle had not men
tioned the bath room incident to he?, but
the witness had asked If Mrs. Glover's
charges were true, to which Hattle re

The annual report of librarian Herbert

;'t shows that in the year 1909-1810, there

During the period 1900-1909 the additions
to the Briilsh museum are stated to have
been ltH.IM; the Blbllotheque Nationals
160.634, and to the library of congress 425,-

these comparisons the congressional Insti

WOULD CUT OUT RED TAPE
(Continued from First Page.)
Clares that a civil service retirement is
absolutely the requisite of a satisfactory
system. Tha contributory system of retir
ing allowances the secretary recommends
tha only one which has a chance of
adoption and as best for the men and
women of the service. He urges their
friends to concentrate upon that movement.
A complete state of offlclency In the gov
ernment departments, he says, Is Impossi
ble without some way of retiring clerks
In a Just and humane manner.
Secretary McVeagh strongly recommends
that all nrm-polltica! offices be included In
the classified service. Assistant appraia
ers of customsshould be detached from
politics for the efficiency of the service, he
says. Tha secretary pays a high tribute
to the men of tha life saving cervloe and
urges some form of retirement for them.
Aldrtrh's Statement Criticised.
As the economies of administration which
have been effected In the Treasury de
partment are reviewed, the secretary pauses
to take notice of a statement made by a
United Rtatea senator, that the business of
the government oould be conducted with a
saving of 1300,000.000 a year.
Secretary McVeagh says: "Tha popular
Impression as to the extent of possible
economies in tho administration of the
executive departments la singularly exag
gerated, and this misconception is very
harmful. When tha public expects that the
government can save 3li0.0u0,000 a .year,
such small, laborious savings as can be
made In the executive departments hardly
seem worth while. And It Is astonishing
that under such clroumstances Interest in
these comparatively small savings can be
"These savings can only be disappointing
to the public, who have such figures as
Isdo.OOO.OK) In mind; and they cannot receive
any popular credit, for they can only seem
to be small triflings with great tiling.
And yet they can only be produced by la
borious, painstaking and persistent meth
ods and devotion.
"When it Is the fact that the entire ordi
nary expenditures of the government last
year were lens than 0.00Q,O0O, and when
a great part of these expenditures Is not
reduceable at all. as. for example, the In
terest on the debt and the pensions, on
can readily see that there probably is not
very much more than 1300,000.000 gross left
on which to save J300.000.0u0. Now, to ef
fect a laving of J3O0.Oli0.o00 when the whole
expenditure amenable to any saving la UuO,
000,000 Is, of course, not easy. I appeal to
the sense of proportion of congress and
the American people, for It Is very Import
ant to have these liqpreealoue corrected in
order that there may be some encourage
lueiit given to those men scattered through
the departments who want to bring about
all the biiprovemrtilrowtble."
Superfluous custom holies, mints and

latter, and the mints of San Francisco,
