MANY HEW FACES
III STATE HOUSE
Officers and Employes at Their
Desks Early in Morning,
Quickly Getting to Work.
ILL PLEASED WITH JOBS
(Fran ft Staff Corresponding.)
Lincoln, Jan. 5. (Special.) New
state officers and employes, as a
rule, were at their desks this morn
ing, some of them very early, and ap
pearing to enjoy the privilege, al
though pay day is a long way off for
some of them.
In the executive offices, Governor
Neville arrived at about the time a
governor is supposed to be on duty
and with an expression on his face
which indicated he hoped he would
like the job. In the front office was
his private secretary, Lee Metcalfe.
Anton Sagel is holding down the
chief clerkship and Miss Anne Tracey
of Omaha, the stenographer's job.
In the office of Secretary of State
Pool, all the nine regulars are hold
ing over, but he has a staff of twenty
three new people working to get the
automobile business cleaned up, so
that there will be no delays for any
body. - New Faces Here.
An office which shows quite a lot
of new faces is that of the state su
perintendent. W. H. Clcmmons has
with him, John A. Woodward, A. H.
Dixon, Cora A. Thompson and Alice
Florer, as new assistants. The other
places have not been changed and
some of them may not be.
The land commissioner's office
shows some changes, Land Commis
sioner Shumway having placed on
the force, J. G.-Pinker, West Point;
E. B. Zimmerman, Lincoln, and Gene
vieve Christanson, in the positions of
recorder, bookkeeper and stenograph
At present Victor Wilson is the
only new one in the office of the
railway commission. Having been
elected to the position of commis
sioner, he will try to hold down the
job, and he probably will make a
pretty good stab at it.
J. F. Webster, St. Paul, newspaper
man, philanthropist and ball player,
is the new state printer. He went
at the ' work as soon as he arrived
and hasn't pied anything yet. He pro
poses to stick on the job when he
isn't at the ball games next summer.
New Food Commissioner.
Otto Murschel, new food, drug and
oil commissioner, appears to be per
fectly at home. He was going over
matters with former Commissioner
Harman and says he proposes to keep
the department up to its present high
standard and raise it a little when
ever opportunity offers. There is one
new man on the job besides the com
missioner himself, G. H. Nichols, who
will be the new dairy inspector.
- George G. Koster, the new game
warden, is going it alone as far as
nwe help is concerned for the present.
He has retained Miss Anna Whelan
as his stenographer." ...-
Changes Among Judges,
Thomas Healey, North Platte, and
, James CcCleery,- Hastings, are the
' new inspectors under Fire Commis
sioner Ridgell. Mr. Ridgell has re
turned from the springs and is feel
ing more like his old self than for
In the halls of justice there is a
change, or tow. Judge Dean, one of
the new justices, brings with him as
reporter, L. B. Waters. Judge Corn
ish has secured the services of Miss
Wilson, stenographer, to outgoing
Justice Fawcet. Miss Raye Merrill,
who was stenographer for Justice
Barnes, goes back to her former po
sition in' the officer of Chief Clerk
Harry Lindsay of the supreme court,
taking the place of George Gold
smith, who has accepted the position
of court reporter to Judge Raper of
the First judicial district.

CALL BILLY SUNDAY
Evangelist Is Charged With
"Choosing" Verbatim Ma
terial in Signed Article.
FROM AN OBSCURE BOOK I
In a letter to the Boston (Mass.)
Post a writer signing himself "A
Maiden Reader," accuses Rev. "Billy"
Sunday of plagiarizing a message he
sent to all Boston newspapers for
publication the day before Christmas
and entitlH "What Chrutmas Means
to Me," from "F.tidorpha," a book
published thirty years ago.
The book, which deals with the life
of one of the type Mr. Sunday con
demns, was published by John Uri
Lloyd of Cincinnati. Only 1 .400 cop
ies were issued, for' private circula
tion. Christmas Message.
Mr. Sunday's Christmas message
read : 1
"Crush all the colors of the rain
bow into one hue, then magnify that
by infinity and you would have less
beauty than Christmas means to inc.
"Lighten eiderdown one thousand
fold and 'hen you would have less
softening, soothing influences than
Christmas means to me.
"Abstract the perfume fron all the
flowers in the world, then the fra
grance would not equal what Christ
mas means to me.
"Gather all light cast by a troop of
angels, then sprinkle the resultant
heautv with star dust, mixed with
diamonds, and that would not equal
what Christmas means to nie.
In chapter XC of Ktidorpha which
spelled backwards is Aphrodite God
dess of Love appears this passage:
"Crush the colors of the rainbow
into a single hue. possessed of the
attributes of all the' others, and mul
tiply that entity to infinity, and you
have less richness than rested in any
of the complex colors shown in the
trimming of her raiment. Lighten
the softness of eiderdown a thousand
times and yet maintain its sense of
substance and you have not conceived
of the softness of the gaue that
decked her simple flpwing garments.
Troops of Angels.
"Gather the shadows cast by a
troop of radiant angels, .then sprin
kle the resultant shade with star dust
and color therewith a garment bright
er than satin, softer than silk and
more ethereal than life itself, and you
have less beauty than reposed in the
modest dress that enveloped her fig
ure. "Abstract the perfume from the
sweetest Oriental grasses and com
bine with it the essential spirit of the
wild rose, then add thereto the soul
of ambergris and the quintessential
extracts of the finest aromatics of the
east and you have not approached
the exquisite fragrance that pene
trated my very being at her ap
proach." Mr. Sunday declared tonight that
he had not read the attack of "A
Maiden Reader." He refused to dis
