New Point in Law
Put Up to Buff alo
KEARNEY. Neb.. Dec. . (Special.
Are parents or teachers responsible for
the acts of children while they are up
nosed to be In attendance at school? Is
the weighty legal question which County
Superintendent Nichols of Buffalo county
was called upon to decide yesterday when
he made a hurried trip to Gibbon. Mr,
Nichols Is befuddled. He says he is not
acting as a barrister, but rather Is trying
to "learn" his young hopefuls.
The question came up In this way
Seven miles north of Gibbon is a little
country School. The teacher Is a kindly
and handsome young woman, who is not
without Individualism, and though It Is
not customary to do such a thing, she
decided to give the little boys and girls
of the school play hours while the older
students were reciting their lessons
In the Joy of freedom and exercising
their prerogatives as "young Americans"
the kiddles brought out the ever present
match from their pockets to show the
little misses with them that they were
almost men. The Inevitable result fire,
Hay to the value of $150 was destroyed
The Irate owner made demands for the
amount from parents of the children.
Parents refused positively to stand for
the amount' and said the teacher was
responsible for letting the children do it.
The agriculturist then asked for money
from the school district- - Thai board
called In the superintendent. He-did not
know and frankly said eo.
Will Give a Boost
To State's Values
(From a Staff Correspondent).
LINCOLN, Dec. S (Special). The ef-
forts of the state board of asesment
to bring about an assessment by county
assessors of all real estate at 75 per cent
of Its reat value. If successful, will mean
that the one-fifth valuation will Ineresse
the total 'fihifttlon of real estate In this
stste about tfiS,740CO. This will mWe the
asresscd valuation of lots and lnndi In
crease from H28.CW.n3l to $TM.t:,911. and
will Increase the total valuation of th-
state from $40.814.192 to $546,554,182.
This is the plan which Secretary
Bernerker of the state board hs been
working on during the past month or so
and will mean an Increase of about 10 per
cent In the vahiatlon of real estate. The
law requires property to be llstel at it
actur.l value and assessed at one-fifth
vnlue. The board propose.! to list the
land at Its sale value, ttking the rec
ords of the county recorder's office for
It. Relieving that a great many of the
sales are shown at more than the real
sale prise it has been decided that 73
per cent of the sale value will about be
the right valuation for taxation purposes.

that very recently Mayor Hryan has

candidate for office to pledge himself for

If they will only fall down and worship

If they do not. It Is understood that the
idea is given them that to fall to fall for
the Bryan plan will mean political death
to all the plans of the one who is called
on the carpet.
It Is well known that Mayor Bryan has
attempted to Influence a certain demo
cratic state officer by telling him that a
slate composed of men who will, pledge
themselves in favor of the prohibition
amendment is to bo made up and if he
does not pledge himself to the Bryan
plan he will find another man opposing

It Is given out by prominent democrats
here that the Bryan threat so far has
had .the effect of making sentiment
against the amendment to be voted upon
at the next election and that as a general
thing the party leaders and many of the
rank and file are opposed to Judging the
fitness of a man for office simply on his
stand for or against prohibition. The
state officer who claims to have been
called on the carpet by the mayor, it is
said, Is very favorable to the amendment
and has always had a tendency along
those lines and does not relish the Idea
of being compelled to knuckle down to
any self-styled leader and threatened with
political death if -he does not pledge him
self to the plan.
Who will be on the dry democratic slate

known, but It Is generally suspected that
Mr. Bryan, will head It himself as the
gubernatorial candidate. In the opinion
