Government Makes Rule
For Using Clerical Help
(Prom a Staff Curropondent.)
Lincoln, Dec. 18. (Special.) The
government will not pay for clerical
assistants for local exemption boards,
unless such assistance has been au
thorized by the governor of the state,
according to instructions sent out by
the government and received at the
offimce of the governor.
In cases where the government does
pay for help it will be only for time
actually employed in the work, as any
pay for time not spent will mean
'millions of dollars' expense to the
government," according to the cir

Price of Alfalfa Hay Leads
Dodge County Food Adminis
trator to Believe Butter
Is to Go Higher.
Fremont, Neb., Dec. 18. (Special
Telegram.) With Alfalfa hay selling
at $35 and prairie hay at $25 a ton,
the dairy products situation promises
to get worse instead of better, ac
cording to I!. V. Reynolds, county
food administrator, who says the sit
uation, presents a tragical aspect.
Dairymen declare that with present
prices of feed prevailing it does not
pay to keep cows, although they are
receiving high prices for their dairy
products. Butter went up to 50 cents
on the Fremont market today.
,"I know a good many patriotic
farmers who arc anxious to do any
thing in their power to aid their coun
try in the fight against Prussianism
by complying with the government's
request to keep their dairy cows, but
how they can afford to do it under
present conditions is beyond me, Mr.

Lincoln, Dec. 18. (Special.) Ac
cording to the monthly report filed
with the state insurance commissioner
the Ancient Order of United Work
men has cut down its deficit during
the last four months $74,500, or an
average of about $18,000 a month.
Accompanying, the report is an' an
nouncement by Grand Master Work
"The order is now taking steps to
protect itself in the future against
the seven-year graft. It is a well
known principle of law that the con
tinned absence of a man from his es
tablished home, unheard from by rela
tives and friends, and no cause or ex
planation Of such absence being ap
parent, for a period of seven years,
creates a presumption of death. As
regards the settlements of estates,
this is a wholesome provision, but it
has been used for the purpose of en
forcing unjust claims against frater
nal associations and lite insurance
companies, the 'dead' man often be
ing resurrected after the money has
been collected on his benefit certifi
cate. One such case against the An
ient Order of United Workmen was
recently frustrated by the alertness
of our general attorney, who traced
the 'deceased' until he found 1pm
alive and well. , Hereafter there will
be attached to every application for
membership a rider to be signed by
the applicant, specifically waiving this
kind of 'death claim' and other pro
visions calculated to insure a good
class of risks and protect the order
against unjust claims. In the mean
time, any member who has abandoned
his family and disappeared from his
home without explanation or justifi
cation ought to be expelled from the
society. We are informed that thcr are
a few more seven-years' claims slowly
ripening, and the lodges where the
parties bold their membership arc
urged to take proper action at once."

Henry Ritterbush, an old resident

State Railway Commission
Has Hearing on "Shrinkage"
(From a StnTf Corr"ipondent.)
Lincoln, Dec. 18. (Special.) The
State Railway commission held a
hearing today on complaint of the
Omaha Grain exchange against the
Union Pacific, Rock Island and Min
neapolis & Omaha railroads, which
insist on deducting one-fourth of 1
per cent for corn in carload lots and
one-eighth of 1 per cent for wheat to
cover loss in transit by shrinkage.
This is allowed in interstate ship
ments and the roads contend that all
shipments of grain from this state to
Omaha are interstate shipments un
less proven otherwise. It is contened
that the grain is carried on to eastern
markets, although rebilled at Omaha.
The act of rebilling, according to
the grain exchange makes the ship
ment to Omaha from out in the state
an intra state shipment and the
shrinkage cannot be allowed.
Kearney. Neb., Dec. 18 (Special.)
William Stansbury, alias George
Wells, alias William G. George, was
taken to Jackson, Mich., yesterday by

arrest at Ravenna last week by Mar
shal O. Geist, for an attempted as
sault on a 12-year-old girl of that
city. Hie charge pending against
him here was dismissed when Mich
igan officers called for their man.
Stansbury is a much wanted man.
Officers of Pennsylvania. Ohio, West
Virginia, Indiana and Michigan were
after him. He was sentenced and
served two years in Indiana for
forgery in 1903. One year later he
attacked his own daughter and got a
He escaped from prison and a year
later attacked an Oberlin, O., girl,
but married her to evade punishment.
At that time his wife lived in Erie,
The next heard of Stansbury was in
Brooklyn, N. Y where he got in
trouble with a girl. He was identified
as the man escaped from the Michi
gan penitentiary and taken back, but
enroute he slugged his guard and
jumped from the moving train, mak
ing good his escape.
He next turned up in Ravenna,
where the officers arrested him after
a chase into Custer county, following
his attack on a cirl there.
