State Treasurer to
Honor Xmas Pay
(From a Ptaff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Neb., Iiec. 17.-Speclnl Tel
egram.) Resides being national demo
cratic committeeman for Nebraska, Dr.
P. L, Hall of Lincoln, proved himself to
he a pretty Kood Hants, Claua to the atate
house employes thla afternoon, when he
visited .tho capital, took a JoeHterher
nclssor'a hold on Btale Treasurer Hall
and a Frank Uotch toe hold on fttato
Auditor ttnlth and caused them both to
go to the rant with both shoulders down
on their order made, while tho doctor
waa In Washington that atate houae em
ployes should not receive their pay war
rants before Christmas, , .
Whether thla waa due to the fact that
the doctor feared a run for, Christmas
money by the state house employes, or
whether he did not like the Idea ot nulli
fying so good an order aa that put In
vogue by former republicans that . atate
houae employes should be paid before
Christmas, snythow he told thte state
officers they were wrong In refusing pay
to their employes and. so, thanks to Dr.
Hall, they will . receive their. December
warrants before Christmas and the kids

sign them, rathfr awaiting the arrival of ' T- -r-r i T) j
the state treasurer and let him do the J JJf ' Hall 1 CUdClCS

In due course of time Mr. Hall came 1
Into the. office and waa notified that the j
warrants awaltdo hln official John Han-
cock, pid be affl It? Not on your life.
With flashing eye and crimson cheek he
se lied those unholy warrants aa a rat
terler would sclxe a festive rodent and
hied himself to the private office of his
brcther demoeratlo official, the' state
auditor, and here the story ends.
Rumor haa It that when the bunch of
warranta hit the dsk xit the auditor that
they rebounded and knocked an arm off
an Image of Thomas Jefferson atandlng
near by, wh'le another rumor aaya that
they threw their arma about each other
and repeated In unison what the gov
ernor of North Carolina as Id to the gov
ernor or South Carolina and hied them
selves to the cigar counter In the corridor
end partook of good Nehawka elder.
In any event. If both officials are as
backward about asking for votes at the
next election as they are about talking
about the warrant Incident, tho voters
will t be bothered much by . Messrs.
Hill and Smith In 191.
