The resolution committee reported a set
of resolutions which recommended that
the editors give the report of the tax
commission a liberal discussion in their
PRpers. The committee bclloved that the
custom of the government in entering
into competition with the print shops of
the oountry In the printing; of envelopes
was an improper Invasion of the. field of
business opportunity and being done at
a loss to the government, was not legiti
mate buslnoss, The committee believed
that the state should advertise Nebraska
by a proper celebration of the fiftieth
anniversary of the state and closed by
recommending the adoption of tho ap
preciation of the efforts of different peo
ple for the success of the meeting as
follows: Tho officers of the association,
the local committee and citizens of Lin
coln; George F. Tobey for lyceum con
tribution; Prof. Condra, Rs H. H. Har
mon. Dr. Fletcher L.. Wharton. Bishop
Tihen, the editorial band, Frank A. Har
rison, Warden Fenton of the penitentiary,
Superintendent Williams of the asylum,
Manager Jones of the Tigers, Sheriff
Hyers, the South Omaha stock yards, tho
women of the Grace Methodist church
nd nil who helped in making the con
vention a success.
Women Abduct Scoop.
The secret of the abduction of "Scoop."
the editorial cow on Monday nlsht leaked
out when It was discovered that certain
women members of the association of of
liccrs of the petticoat city administration
of the camp, with the assistance of Dr.
Williams of the state asylum, had spir
ited away the cow and taken her to tho
Juat to show what the people may ex
pect In tho way of honest government
If the women get to holding office was
shown when the officers of the camp city
arrested a lot of the men and brought
them before Polio Judge Mrs. Cross and
had them fined for stealing tho cow. The
atrocious deeds in connection with Rus
sian Justice were completely put In the
shade by the henlous star chamber pro
ceedings of the petticoat court. '
Everybody feels good over the success
of the forty-second session and the editors
have sained much by the opportunity to
become better acquainted.
