ing Cars.
Lincoln, July 21. Automobile
dealers are liable to find themselves
in a great deal of trouble if they
do not cease using their dealers'
numbers for personal use. The new
automobile law strictly prohibits a
dealer from using his dealer's li
cense on cars which are not being
demonstrated. He must confine the
use of the number to trips where
he is demonstrating the car for sale
It has come to the attention of
the automobile department that the
law is being broken all over the
country. It is no infrequent thing
to see a dealer's number on a Sun
day or in the evening on several
cars being used purely for pleasure
and this must cease, according to
Stale Engineer Johnson.
Discussing the law Stafe Engi
neer Johnson says:
"In passing house bill 299 at the
1919 session of the legislature, it
was the intention of the men draft
ing the bill, also the members of
the legislature, that all dealers and
car users should pay the same for
all classes of cars, excepting those
cfrafinnr iuirrtncp nn1v
Intent of Law Clear.
"If a dealer has a private car for
himself and family, or has a separ
ate truck, he would pay the same
tax as any other individual or busi
ness man, and the purpose and in
tent of this law seems to be very
oecuuu 1 muics nidi cdin manu
facturer or dealer doing business in
the state, may register one motor
vehicle in each class manufactured
and he may secure numbers for as
many vehicles in the same class as
he has to demonstrate. Section 19
also provides that a purchaser may
keep a dealer's registration num
ber for a period not exceeding 10
days. It also provides that the sec
tion docs not refer or apply to
motor vehicles operators, by a deal
er" for his private use or for hire.
"Section 20 provides that all elec-

trically driven vehicles shall consti
tute a class; all vehicles propelled
by steam, shall constitute a class,
all vehicles propelled by gas explo
sives weighing less than , 4,000
pounds a class; all cars and trucks
or more than 4,000 pounds a class.
Section 0 also provides that a dealer
shall comply in all other respects
with the provisions of the act.
"The reason for the special con
sideration of dealers for cars being
used for demonstrating purposes,
is that such cars are sold and reg
istered by the purchaser during the
"Sections 19 and 20 of the act refer
to dealers and does not make any
distinction between dealers of new
or second-hand cars. The tax should
be paid on the class of car handled,
regardless of the make.
Four Bandits Rob
Nearly 50 Transient
Farm Hands on Train
Lincoln, Neb., July 21. Four
armed robbers operating last night
on a Chicago, Burlington and
Quincy freight train between Sut
ton and Fairmont, Neb., robbed
nearly 50 transient farm hands Sun
day night and threw a number of
their victims from the train, said a
report received Monday by Bert
Ely, a Burlington special agent here,
from a railroad telegrapher at Fair
mont. A number of the farm hands
complained to the operator at Fair
mont. His report did not say if
any of the farm hands were injured,
nor did it approximate the amount
of money reported stolen.

Lincoln, July 21. Former Lieo
tenant Governor Edgar Howard of
Columbus was in the city Monday
in the interests of the movement
for an organization against the rati
fication of the league of nations as
advocated by President Wilson.
Mr. Howard has traveled over the
state considerably and he says that
there is an overwhelming sentiment
against any entangling alliances on
the part of the United States with
any foreign countries which are
likely to take from us our rights as
an independent and liberty-loving
Regarding the matter he has
issued the following:
Recently I published an appeal for 100
red-blooded Americans to Join me in Is
suing a call for a mass meeting in Ne
braska, the object of the meeting being
to protest against and to devise ways and
mpans to prevent the ratification of a
league of nations covenant, or that part
of the covenant which constitutes an of
fensive and defensive alliance between the
government of the United States and the
government of any monarch In Europe or
in Asia.
Instead of hundreds answering the call,
thousands have eagerly asked that their
own names might be attached to such a
Tall Public Meetings.
In consultation with many true Amer
icans It had been planned to call such
Htate mass meeting for some day next
week on the state capitil grounds in Lin
coln. But more mature deliberation and
consideration has developed a plan of ac
tion which I believe will be more fruitful
than a hastily-called state mass meeting
during the hot weather season. This plan
provides for the early calling of public
mass meetings In every county (such as
the mass meeting In Dodge county last
week). Any number of true Americans in
any county can issue a call for such a
meeting. Inviting to the meeting all citi
zens who are opposed to any manner of
alliance between the government of the
United States and any government in
Europe or In Asia. I suggest three lines
of action by such mass meetings in each
First The passare of resolutions of
protest against any feature of the league
of nations covenant which is in effect an
offensive and defensive alliance between
the government of the United States and
the government of any nation In Europe
or Asia, anil the telegraphing of such res
olutions to Senators Norris and Hitchcock.

Refuse to Lower Rate on

Lincoln, July 21. The national
railway administration is "dead set"
against any proposition covering
transportation of the Nebraska fish
car at any rate less than 30 cents a
mile, according to a letter received
by Acting Governor Barrows from
Senator George W. Norris.
Senator Norris stated that he had
been to see the railway administra

Rialto William S. Hart in "The
Money Corral," written, directed and
the stellar role played by himself,
will be at the Rialto again today,
Wednesday and Thursday. The
story of the photodrama tells of
Lem Beeson, a Montana cowboy,
who is hired as a special watchman
over the papers of a big financial
man of Chicago. How the westerner
defeats the gang of thugs and thieves
in the robbing of his friend's big
vault is a thrilling melodrama, and
the cowboy wins not only a reward
but a charming girl.
Strand A double bill, Dorothy
Dalton in "The Homebreaker" and
Fatty Arbuckle in "A Desert Hero,"
is at the Strand. Miss Dalton ha a
story of a near "vamp," an interest
ing comedy drama, and the big ro
tund comedian is a cowboy of the
desert country who becomes a hero
in his latest funny one.
Sun Madlaine Traverse in "Rose
of the West" portrays a girl of the
northern wilds, where only a few
Indians and the occasional mounted
policeman are the only visitors. It
is a strong melodramatic sort of
picture and one in which Miss Trav
erse has an opportunity to display
her ability to carry a difficult role.

Minden Man Held to
Grand Jury on Charge
r l k .1
or Murdering ivlotner
Minden, Neb., July 21. (Spe
cial Telegram.) John G. Shafer of
Minden was bound over to the dis
trict court grand jury at a prelimi
nary hearing before Judge T. W.
Hague Monday, charged with the
murder of his mother, Mrs. Mary
Shafer. The alleged murder oc
curred April 28, 1919.
Shafer was arrested July 19. after
more than two months, invistiga-
tion. In the complaint filed by
County Attorney J. L. McPheeley,
he was accused of shooting his
mother twice, in the head and neck.
Shafer claimed at the time that his
mother committed suicide, but in
vestigation proved that it would
have been impossible for the woman
to have shot herself twice, as either
shot would have immediately
paralyzed her.
John Shafer, late husband of Mrs.
Shafer and father of the accused
man, was convicted many years ago
of the murder of a deputy sheriff,
by Attorney McPheely, the same
man who will prosecute the son.
Shafer, at that time, was sentenced
to be hanged but the supreme court,
later reversed the decision.
