Calf With Enough
Rope Will Go Hang

"Give a calf rope enough and It will
harig Itself," quotes F. A. High, .dlstr'.ct
superintendent of the Anti-saloon league,
in speaking of the drinking places In
Omaha selling out of hours, as exposed
by The Bee. "I notice that one of the
bartenders said the Anti-saloon leaguo
had never done' anything. Well, If under
the noBes of these dear little city of
ficials In Omaha the saloons can pull
off such flagrant violations of the law
as they have been doing, they We doing
more to discredit the saloon cause and
help our. cause than an organization

"As a matter of fact," he continued,
"It was the saloon Interests that secured
the passage of the law providing .that a
defendant In police court may -demand ' a

twelve men without having one or two
In the bunch that did not favor the f
o'clock closing law, and that one or two
can overrule the rest and secure an
acquittal. The county attorney says the
people are not In sympathy with the 8

the county officials hobnob with are not
I cannot say about that, but I say that
the. rank and file of the people of Omaha
are In favor of these laws."

Mr. Howell to recover for the city the

The law requires that where a muni

eral, manager of the water district, re
ceived $63.90 from the funds of the Metro
politan Water District of the city of
Omaha for expenses while attending an
annual convention of the American
Water Works association.
Our courts have recently held that a
municipal board Is without authority to
make an allowance of this kind; that It
Is an unlawful expenditure of the public

unlawfully withdrawn from the publlo
treasury may be recovered back, so
kindly see that Mr. Howell returns this
money or begin suit against him for the
