RAILROADS WILL ;
Have Issued Orders to Em
,. ployei Liquor Must Kot Be
Handled After May 1.
HAVE PROBLEM ON BANDS
In i fight lo 4 finish the railroads
have locked horns with Old John
Barleycorn, and ao far aa Nebraska
ia eomerned, they propose to put
him oat of business at the end of the
present month. 1 .','
All of the lines operating into and
through Nebraska have issued cir
cular to agents and the circular! are
substantially the same. They recite
that under the provisions of the Ne
braska laws, "effective at midnight
April 30, it will be unlawful to have
in our possession, transport, or de
liver intoxicating liquors destined to
any point in Nebraska. It will also be
unlawful to receive for shipment to
points outside of the state after-midnight
April 30. -,
"Effective at once, you must refuse
shipments destined to points within
the state. - For points putside the
state where liquors can be legally
shipped, such shipments must be ac
tually in our possession and billed be
fore midnight of April 30. All liquor
on hand must be delivered before Slay
The circulars are issued on advice
of the legal departments of the re
spective roads and it is asserted that
all agents will be held responsible
i Problems for Road.
One problem that confronta the
railroads is to determine how they are
going to handle liquor shipments en
route to destination and that can
not be delivered before May 1, the
date' when the prohibition law be
The law provides that delivery
must be made before May 1 and ft
also provides that carriers must not
have liquor in their possession on
that date. With them the question is
what is to be done with the liquor if
it cannot be delivered within the pro
scribed time. There is no provision
of law for its destruction and while
the carriers are liable for violation
of the law if they have it on hand,
there is no way by which they can
dispose of it.
Under the law the stuff cannot be
shipped back to point of origin, for
in so doing, coming from the east or
south, it wuld have to go into and
through dry territory, which in itself
would be a violation of the provisions
of the Nebraska law.'
In handling shipments of liquor rail
roads have been doing -an enormous
business in the last ten days. Con
signments of from one to 100 gallons
have gone forward to hundreds of
towns in Nebraska, Wyoming and
South Dakota, but aince Friday morn
ing there has been a decided falling
off in the business.

, The bucket brigade, whose badge
is the o'erflowing can, has been re-
enforced by the bottle battalion,
whose distinction is a bulging hip
pocket or a slender, oblong paper
box. Each has recruited to full strength
to pay last homage to ol' John Bar
leycorn, who is neither late nor la
mentedyet. Nebraskans are indulg
ing in what Mark Twain might call
some "fremature" obsequies for Old
Man Booze. .
There is merry making at the wake,
Everybody smiles, even the bartender
who ia about to loss his job and the
bartender's boss, who is about to loss
his business. It's a happy gathering
that is in at the death.

Convention to Organize Flan

MEN FROM THREE STATES
Bohemians of Nebraska, Kansas

army and navy, and also for the pur
pose of raising funds for the Bo
hemian Independence committee that
ia working in diplomatic circles in the
allied countries and striving to obtain
independence for the Cisco-Slovaks,

At the head of this committee if
Professor Masaryk, former member
of the Austrian parliament and now a
lecturer in King's college, London.
His American wife ia still in Bo

former deputies, professors and jour

in Russia. France, Italy, ttt, and have'
organized Bohemian units for the
armies of the individual allied coun
tries. From among the Bohemian prison
ers in Russia most of whom have vol
untarily left the Austrian army, there
is being formed a regular Bohemian
army, numbering about 100,000.
The duty of the Bohemians in the
United States from the beginning of
the war has been to aid financially the
families of Bohemian soldiers in Eng

They like the Scripps-Booth because it is a car they can

We should like to extend your interest in the Scripps
