(From a Staff Correspondent)
v 3UlCOt,N, Sept. 19.-(Speclal.)-The
city of Lincoln will bo the scene of much
strife during thb next few woks. The
charter commission Is finding Its work
criticized from many points, and It Is a
question whether the charter will ever
However greater grief awaits the new
city commission when on Saturday morn
1ns there will be filed In the district
court by Henry Hucklns of the Lincoln
Herald, an Injunction restraining the
city clerk from Issuing vouchers to the
new officers under the city commission
Mr. Hucklns sets out Jn his applica
tion that tho statutes of Nebraska giv
ing cities of. the, class of Lincoln a right
to lncororate and have charters say that
th city clerk shall rccclvo $1,500 per
annum, the engineer fl.CO and sc on. the
chief of police to receive 1100 jpt month,
which shall be "In full for all services
tf every kind rendered by them."
The applcatlon then goes on to show
how the different officers have received
boosts in salaries and especially the chief
of police, who will receive, beginning
September 1, an additional $50 a month
and aso an allowance of another $50 a
month for the use ot Wb automoblo.
Mr. Hucklns declares this to be a wicked
end useless extravagance and a waste
of the people's money, and he asks that
the court declare action of the city corn

from drawing warrants for the Increase,
Other charges In extravagance In othet
departments are cited to show that there
Is a wanton and wholesale discrimina
tion against the, rights of tho taxpayers
Tho fine point In the controversy and
the one which will be the bone of con
tentlon and on which tho commission
bases Its right to make the Increases Is
the claim of the commission that the
.Banning law gives them the right to
make the salaries which officials of the
city shall receive, while Mr. Hucklns
insists that they cannot go back of the
statutes which created cities of the Lin
con class and prescribed the salaries to

localities have suffered on account of tho
protonged hot weather, but Nebraska
corn is going to bo In evidence.
"Our state has received some unfavor
able advertising because some peoplo, who
have seen only the bad features have
become' scared and have advertised the
fact that Nebraska "crops have been
burned out There Is going to .be lots
of corn In Nebraska. It Is only necessary
to read the reports In the dally papers
from the county fairs to show that there
Is lots ot corn.
"I saw an account of the Boone county
fair at Albion this morning, which says
that the corn exhibit thero Is four times
as great as In any previous, years, and
that county has made some great ex
hibits In the past, too."

NORTH PLATTE FAIR AND
. FESTIVAL GREAT SUCCESS
NORTH PLATTE, Neb., Sept 19.(-8pe-clal,)
The large attendance and splendid
displays of agricultural and live stock
exhibits at the Lincoln County. Agricul
tural Fair and Fall festival, being held
at North Platte this week, Is a great sur-
prlso to many who were depressed by
the hot, dry weather and who Imagined
that crops were a failure.
The commltteo In charge was overrun
for the best space In which to display
the exhibitsthat have been brought In
by the people throughout the county.
The products exhibited, numbering more
than 700 hundred entries, aro pronounced
by agricultural college experts, who are
acting as Judges, to be the equal, and
In vinany cases, surpassing tho display
found at state fairs.' The live stock
showing Is not so large, consisting ot
ICO entries, but in most cases they are
thoroughbred and eligible to compete fot
state fair prizes.
A careful canvass of the corn situa
tion In the county shows that the yield
will be nearly up to the ten years
average, and by reason of tho high
price of corn the Income from thli
source will be considerably above the
average. The alfalfa and wild hay crop
is very large.
Sweet clover, which until recently con
sidered a dangerous weed, has been found
to bo a valuable forage plant and over
130.C00 worth of sweet clover seed Is be
lng shipped by local dealers. Thin seed
brings about the same price as alfalfa,
and tho demand far exceeds tho supply
at this time.
The applo crop Is the best in years, and
the quality ot the fruit Is excellent; on
orchard alone, that ot David Hunter,
will produce 15,000 bushels of marketable
An Interesting feature of the festival
