The sensation on Faniam street, the talk of the town, the Great Sale at The Fair. We wish to apologue to the many thousand of people that we were compeuea w a v that not
store during our sale of last Friday and Saturday, while your fellow citizens were on the inside of our three large storerooms, packed like sardines in a box. We trutnnmy can Bay uiat w e
expect that 80 per cent of the population of Omaha would turn out to attend this great Sale at Twelfth and Farnam streets. But Mr. Sam A. Adler, Prop, of the Fair Store owti mm tne u ve i wire
of Tast Farnam street, is always on the lookout for bargain stocks and he surely fell in right when he landed the Main Dept. Store stock from Denver, Colo , away JJJf
at 23 cents on the dollar; and the many thousands of people that attended this sale last week said that they never, in the history of Omaha, saw goods sold at such low P"ces JJ". 7
turned they saw large yellow signs with the bargains priced, staring them in the face. The Fair Store is mostly patronized by the laboring classes, and they surely reaped a narvest m uie way oi
saving at least 60 cents on the dollar of their purchases. . , , . n.nr. .vu-v ttt Wirrt tv.t
We will be closed all day Monday remarking and putting in stock, the balance of the 175 large cases of this high-grade merchandise on sale Tuesday morning at 9.30 J'J
the large force of extra help we had at the warehouse on Saturday would get through marking the goods so that we could go right ahead with the sale on Monday; but we are sorry mat we nave u
disappoint you on that account, as it is no easy task to sort and mark 175 cases of merchandise and put them in stock ready for you. .mi ' ,,,
, We wish to say that if at any time on Tuesday you attend this sale and find the doors locked, please have a little patience and wait a few moments and we will M?)
some of the crowds out. The wonderful bargains that are in store for you Tuesday and the balance of the week are the greatest that have ever been offered west or new loric aiy, ana wiu mean a
saving of 60 cents on the dollar to you.

The rase was brought to -the supreme
court through the remonstrance of Rev.
J. M. Leidy against the issuing of a license
to Met! Brothers In Omaha In 1910. rhu-lnsT
the previous year Meta Brothers had sold
beer In sealed case containing two doien
bottle, either pints or quarts, directly to
consumers. Orders were, received either
personally, by telephone or by mail, but the
brewery did not directly solicit such orders.
This manner of distributing; beer to con
sumers was the continuation of a policy
which had been tn effect for thirty years.
The decision, of the court Is based upon Its
Interpretation of the difference bet ween
holesale and retail sales, and Is the most
important decision yet rendered under the
Gibson law which forbids brewers from
engaging In tha retail business.
The court's Interpretation of ths differ
ence bet Keen retail and wholesale business
Is summed up In the following paragraph
of the opinion: "A manufacturer of beer
ho sells his product to unlicensed consum
ers for their use sella at retail within the
uitWutf of chapter 82. law of Nebraska.
The next holding of the opinion naturally
fo!!o-i: "A nanufacturer of beers who
sells his j roduct at retail Is gul'ty of sell
.nrf ber without a license, and that fact
being maiia to appear, an excise board !
I should not Issue a license to him In the
j year next succeeding the commission of
' The Gibson law does not define the dif-
ft-renew between w!:oIe.-a:e and retail sales,
j The court, therefore, holds that It Is Its
j duty tn thia case to formulate a special
definition of the terms. Explaining Its
refusal to accept the dictionary defini
tions, the court say. "If the content on
of applicsnt is to prevail the manufac
turer can em lose two pints In a sealed
I package as easily aJ tnenty-fjur and de
I liver to consumer and thus practically
I nullify the provisions f our liquor laws
and peddle his product thiougnout the
city and count n. '
The dissenting opinion takes exception
to the reasoning and conclusions of tha
majority of tt.e court. It says of that
i opinion. "It defines the terms wholesale
and retail In a nianner finite at var-.aace
with the generally adopted meaning of
! those words when applied to the sale of
'other commodities The statement of
j facts contained in the majority opinion
I wholly eliminates the question of price.
1 mhich ourht to be stated and considered
J tn order to correctly decide the main ques
tion presented for our determination.'
Th dissenting judge points out that
case beer sold to consumers is sold only
in sealed caees and at the wholesale plica,
and that no beer Is permitted to be con
sumed upon their premises, and that no
beer has ever been sold by the glass or
ths single bottle. Thes facts, they say,
should be taken Into consideration In de
termining what constitutes retail sales.
The dissenting opinion closes with th
"Finally, for th courts to undertake to
surpress the brewers of this stats by the
Indirect method of refusing a license to
carry on their business as a penalty for
transacting It as they have dona for thirty
years with the acqulesenc of th public,
and without any atatute directly and
plainly changing that custom and without
giving them, with their enormous capital,
an opportunity to adjust themselves, their
property and their business to new condi
tions, would be not only unjust and oppres
sive, but an Invasion of the province of the
legislature. We are of opinion that such
an important change In ths policy of the
state should be made by direct and un
equivocal legislation, and with reasonable
opportunity to capital so Invested to adjust
Itself to ths changed conditions, nos by
Ji dlclsj declaration."

Alton D. White, a druggist at St- Ed
wards, must pay a fine of tXsuO for selling
wbisky, according to another decision of
thd supreme court. White had frequently
been prosecuted and fined for violation of
the liquor laws. Finally a Jury found hlin
guilty on each of fourteen counts and fixed
his fine at t) on each count, Thia Judg
ment Is affirmed. Tha defendant alleged
that the Information charged him with tne
sale of ons kind of liquor and the proof
showed a different kind. Th court said
tl.at the evidence showed that the bottles
sold and kept for sale contained at least a
mixture of the kind of liquor charged and
that It was Intoxicating.

The court holds that ths location of a
normal school at Chad run by the old state
board of education was legal and that tne
trustees of ths Congregational school at
Chsdron had power to dispose of their
property to th stale to be used for a
normal school. Two years ao ths legis
lature created a normal board of education
which was to succeed the old state board.
Later the supreme court held this law
unconstitutional. Another act of the legis
lature authorised th Normal Board of
Education to locate a fourth state norma
school. . There bun no Normal board f
Education, the the regular state board es
tablished the school at Chadron and Its
acts are now held legal by th supreme

This is the first reversal by the courts

State Railway commission.
After the railway commission ordered the
company to maintain a crossing the rail
road company appealed to th district court
of Lancaster county and there Judgment
was for the commission. This Judgment Is
now reversed by the supreme court, with
directions to enter an order dismissing the
proceedings before the commission. The
opinion of the court wss written by Judge
Root, Chief Justice Reese not sitting. The
court finds that Walnut street had n'it
