(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Dec. l.-(Speclftl.)-Tomor-row
the voter of the city of' Lincoln
tvIH decide at on. election whether they
want to adopt the new city charter pre
pared by a charter commission selected
at the spring election when the present
city 'commissioners were elected.
There Is considerable doubt as to tha
outcome, -both aides claiming that they
expect to win out The fight, has been
a bitter one, at times reaching the per
sonality, stage, when the lie was passed
by exponents of both sides of the ques
tion. Doth dally papers have been lined
tip on the side of the charter, which has
given the charter ndherents the Inside
of the fight as far as publicity la con
cerned. However, the opponents to the
charter have not been Idle, and for over
a month meetings have been hid all over
th city where the demerits of the prop
ortions have been shown up.
Such men as ex-Mayor Don U Love,
Oeorge V. Berg. Charles W. Bryan.
Assistant Attorney General Edgerton. W.
M. Morning, ex-Mayor T. W. Brown, ,13.
O. Mnggl and Tom Allen aro opposing
the adoption of the charter, while Rep
resentative J. H. Mockett, Senator StI
leek. I. II. Hatfield. O. W. Meier and
Prof. Alcsworth of the state university
favor Its adoption.
Whlcl Its adovcates are claiming thai
the .new charter will give the people a
chance to rule and Vole upon every
measure of Importance that may come,
those opposed to it assert that after the
people have voted upon' any .proposition
the commission ban by a unanimous voto
decide therwlse. This they claim Is a
part of the charter which Is favorable
to the corporations and public utilities
and really does not have much effect.
In other words the Initiative and referen
dum as adopted la effective only so far as
It suits the commissioners.
Others, clalni that the new charter
raises taxes to a height that the aver
age man cannot see over the top and
favors the wealthy merchant aa aglnst
the poor man who owns a house arid
lot In the aoutsklrts of the town. They
also claim that the charter has been no
peculiarly drawir that the' poor fellow
outside of the business district lias got
to donate r toward the fixing up of the
down town university campus for the
benefit tof the down town merchant, who
gets rich from the trade of the students,
which cornea tao his establishment by
reason of the fact that It Is close to the

TECfMBEIt. Neb., Dec. l.-(8pcclal.)-lt
Is not altogether Improbable that there
will be some Interesting developments In
connection with the theft of tho books of
tho defunct Chamberlain banking house
of this city In the near future. The
book, stolen from tho office of the
sheriff here In the night ot October S,
1S08, have Just been found In the old
channel of the Nemaha river at the edge
of town.
A new river channel has Just been cut
near the old bed and It Is four feet lower
than the old river bed. When the water
was let out of tho old river the box con
taining the books were found by Goorse
Merrill, a 16-ycar-old lad. tied to a stump
by wire and weighted down with stones.
Aa long as the water remained normal
In the old rlber the box was well covered,
and, by freshets and otherwise, mud had
drifted well over the box. The books
were taken out by Sheriff E. L. Roberts
and two others, taken uptown ahd put
to drying out under lock and key.
At tho office of the county attorney It
Is hinted that the officer Is going to as'.t
the consent of Judge J. B. Bayer of the
district court to have a liberal reward
offered for Information leading to tho
Identity ot the thieves, and to promise
the man who will give up tho Information,
"peach" as It were. Immunity from
prcsecUtlon. As Jhe books and. box weighed
275 pounds It Is known that at least two
and perhaps three men had a hand In
their theft. The Idea Is to get one of the
men to give up the secret.

State Not to Pay
for Pajama Bags
of Its Examiners
(From a Staff Correspondent.
LINCOLN. Dec. l.-(Speclal.)-Uank ex
aminers, Insurance examiners, county
treasurer examiners or any other kind
of an examiner for the state who In the
tutum may want a typewriter to take on
their trips must not expect tho state to
pay the bills. Neither can they purchase
high-priced traveling bags to carry
their pajamas In and charge It to ex
penses. Governor Morchcad and Auditor How
anl both claim that they enrry their
extra duds wrapped up In a newspaper
when they go away over night and be
lieve that If tho examiners want any
thing better than that It only costs .V)
cents for a telcscopo grip or n little net
sack can be secured at most any 10-cent
store for a dime which la good enough
to lug around a lot ot letterheads and
dlrtv collars.
Wnntn New Typewriter,
The controversy came up a few daya
ago when one ot the new bank ex
aminers made application for a brand
new typewriter. The new members of
the board, tho governor 'and auditor,
were thunderstruck. They did not be
lieve tho state should pay for typewriters
which the examiners used for their own
private letter writing and promptly sat
down on the proposition. Auditor How
ard said that twice ho had had to order
typewriters back to the offlceused by
examiners In his department who had
been let out and ho did not bellevo that
the state had any right to purchaso
machines for these rqen.
It Is said that there aro seven type
writers In tho hands of bank examlnera
belonging to the state and several ex
aminers have nlco leather bags In which
they carry their papers and private be
longings when traveling about. It la also
claimed that Insurance examlnera have
recently been seen carrying around
brand new leather bags which the state
paid for.
