BURGESS-NASH STORE NEWS FOR SATURDAY.
Pkon Douglas 137.
General Manager of Burling
ton Defends Action of Fuel
Administration in Closing
Down Big Plants.
"Fuel Administrator Garfield is
right, regardless of what people may
say, and in the promulgation of his
order relative to the conservation' of
fuel it is the duty of every loyal
American citizen to assist in holding
up his hands, said General Manager
Holdrege of the Burlington.
"These aretimes when it behooves
every true and loyal American to ud
hold the government in everything
it aoes. inia hnding tault with the
government and its officials is a
sweet morsel for its enemies and
should be discouraged in every pos-
"These are times when it is the
duty of every good citizen to stand
up and proclaim that the government
is right and that the official acts of
its officials are right, even if there
is a lingering opinon that they are
Says Move Expected
"The action of Mr. Garfield has
been just ..hat has been expected by
men who have watched the trend of
conditions. The piling up of sup
plies and manufactured goods along
the Atlantic coast when the govern
ment lacked facilities for getting the
surplus over the seas to our soldiers
and our allies we knew was some
thing that would have to eventually
stop and the only wonder is that it
did not cease long ago.
"With the cessation in manufac
turing ai.d the shutting down of the
plants great quantities of coal is go
ing to be released to go to the sea-
. board, where it will be used for tuel
for ocean-going vessels. With these
vessels sailii.g it ought not to be long
until the congestion along the coast
will be reduced to a minimum. Then
the manufacturing plants can resume
operations and there will be no indi
vidual who will be a heavy loser."
Harry Halstead Loses
First Round in Liquor Case
A United States Commissioner Neely,
Friday morning, held that the pro
visions of the fourth amendment to
the federal constitution are null and
void as regards the, illegal liquor
traffic. Attorney Daniel Horngan
quoted the amendment in support of
his motion that two suitcases full of
"boore" should be returned to Harry
Halstead, 1504 Burt street, because
Halstead had been searched by Spe
cial Agent Van Kirk of the bureau
of investigation without a warrant.
The special agent trailed Halstead
from Conception, Mo., to- Omaha and
searched his suitcases at the Union
"In doing this without a warrant,"
said Mr. Horrigan, "the federal of
ficers violated the provisions of the
fourth amendment. There is a right
way to proceed against bootleggers
and a wrong way and the federal of
ficers know it. This man could have
been detained if he was suspected
and searched after his constitution
rights regarding his property had
Commissioner Neely held, however,
that liquor is not property in the
state of Nebraska, that it has no rec
ognition as such in the courts be
cause it cannot be bought or sold or
bartered legally. Halstead was held
under $1,000 bond.
New York Life Urges Policy
Holders to Buy War Stamps
The seventy-third annual report of
the New York Life Insurance com
pany, has a war-tinge. All policy
holders are urged to buy war sav
ings and thrift stamps, and agents
have been directed to take no appli
cation for, insurance from a soldier
unless the applicant already has the
limit nf insurance from the srovern-
ment. The company has over $12,
jtfQO.OOO in Liberty bonds.
Notwithstanding the company does
business in nearly all the belligerent
countries, its mortality rate for 1917
was the lowest in the history of the
company; and notwithstanding very
little new foreign business was done
in 1917, its total new insurances
were over $316,000,000.
The company's liabilities under
1,300,000 policies amount to over
$760,000,000, leaving a surplus of
$174,000,000 from which dividends to
the amount of $26,500,000 have been
declared for 1918. The dividend scale
of 1917 is continued on all annual
dividend policies. Payments to the
insured in 1917 were over $87,000,000.
The average earning power of the
company's ledger assets increased
during the year and now stands at
