KNOX COUNTY OFFICIALS GET
SALARIES ON PHONY CENSUS

BLOOMriKU. Neb.. I ec ii-eclal )
The government census of isO credited
Knox county with a population of 343
and the U1 cemus gives it IK .3TA. a gain of
4.0"J In the decade The more the taxpay
ers of this county have been studying these
two census reporte for the last few weeks,
the more they are becoming thoroughly
aaakened from their lethargy and are aek
Ing themselves the pertinent question:
YVhy they have been paying; their county
officials and their deputies salaries for
the last six or seven years based on a
population of 2. 50". a population that every
reasonable and Intelligent man In the
county believed to be several thousand too
Mgh during those years.
On July 11. Vi. the county board met at
tha county seat and went through some
kind of a pretenae to take testimony in
order to determine the population of the
county, and after thla deliberation immedi
ately resolved that the population of the
county In IK was 71.M3. la 16 was 22.162.
and In IMS) was 22.00. No seoner had the
board agreed on this population of the
county then It forthwith proceeded to get
busy boosting the talarle of the officials
and their deputies. It raised the sheriffs
salary from SI. 500 to tl.Tad. the county at
torney's from to I1.M, and the deputy
Clark and deputy treasurer each the extra
to 11 O. and the board even became so
Imbued with such a fplrlt cf generoity
that It went back and paid the deputy
clerk and deputy treasuerer each the extra
DUO per year from 15 O up to
A the lilO census shows only a popula
tion cf H.IZ'S and the board's census of
IMS shows 22.500. a difference of 4.142 or
a losa of population In four years. It be
comes plainly evident that several thou
sand dollars has been paid out to thoae
county officials In the way of excessive
salaries, and the question that now arises
la the minds of the taxpayers is: YVon't
somebody have to pay this money drawn
In excessive salaries back to the county?

Postmaster Thomas accounts for tbe
quick dispatching of mails through the

tra carriers and thlrty-fie extta clerks
wer employed for th holiday season, and
th mail cars which mak sixty trips a

of trips upon Friday and Saturday. Cars
went to the depots with mail as soon as
thsy wer filled Ignoring schedules.
"An unusual thing happened thla year.

usual congested conditions to a great ex

Th hearing reconvened with A. J.
Shields, clerk of the Board of Fire and
Police Commissioners, on tb witness stand.
Mr. Fhields identified report of the ar
rest of a party of gemMep pteferee Evans
sustained Mr. Wonnell's objection to At
torney General Mullens offering in evi
dence tb report, the objection being
made on the ground of Immateriality. The
complaint against the chlet Mr. Connell
contended, does not refer to gambling
"YVhst rules are the polio department
acting ucderT" asked Mr. Mullen. Mr.
Connell objected, saying:
"It has already been shown by witness'
testimony that It is acting under no rules
whatever, so fsr as law is concerned."
YY'hrn th objection was overruled. Mr.
Shields said the department Is acting under
the rule la the polio department manual.
Witness testified that he has furnished
out of th manual to Chief Donohu and
to other members of the police department.
H said payment for printing of th man
ual ia made out of the police fund.

Cross-examined by Mr. Connell, Mr.
Shields said that when licensed liquor deal
ers ax convicted for selling Uquor in vio
lation of law their licenses are cancelled.
The convicted liquor dealera. he said, csn
not secure new licenses, but licensee may
be and ar lasued to other, who may con
duct saloons at the locations formerly oc
cupied by the convicted persons. Regardless
of whether or not th previous licenses
were near expiration when cancelled the
persons securing th new ones must psy

YVItne, still nnder cross-examination,
said th chief of poilc Is at his desk prac
tically all tha Urn and personally does not
patrol beat nor make round. He testi
fied that th complement of tb department
la IS at this tim. luciudirgj about clgbty
flv patrolmen, thirteen detectives, six
sergeants and three captains.
YVitness said there Is a polio court prose

Mr. Karbach, placed on the stand by tha
state, told of the events leedlng up to his

Ylelatlea af Llaaor Law.
Mr. Connell declared the chief Is on trial
merely for permitting violations of tne
loquor. law and not for permitting op
eration of disorderly bousea. Mr. Mullen
contended tha charge ar three, vis., per
mitting liquor selling without a license,
permitting liquor selling after t o'clock in
the evening and on Sunday, and permitting
operation of disorderly houses.
Mr. Mullen offered In evidence a report
from the local Vnlted State Internal rev
enue office ahowlng that government
uquor licenses have been Issied to sbout
JO persons in Omaha, a number consid
erably In excess of th number of persons
supposed to be holding local licenses. Mr.
Connell objected to th offer, saying some
of th persons named Ir th report have
left th city, other ar dead, and some
probably have surrendered their licenses.
The objection was sustained. Mr. Mullen
ordered from the Internal revenue officii a
certified copy of Its list of persons In
vjmaha cow holding government licenses.
Th office said It will take at least until
Thuisday nuon to prerart th copy.
