IN STATE FAVORS
Citizens Quick to Inform On
Violators, Prohibition Officer
Finds On Tour of State.
Sentiment in Nebraska is over
whelmingly in favor of strict en
forcement of national prohibition,
according to James H. Hanley, state
director of prohibition enforcement,
who issued a statement yesterday
following visits during the last two
weeks to 25 Nebraska counties.
"I am convinced people of. the
state generally are deeply interested
in thorough enforcement of prohibi
tion measures," he said. "Local au
thorities in various counties report
ed td me numerous instances of citi
zens volunteering information of al
leged violations and'otfering to ap
pear as witnesses against violators.
With that sort of public co-operation,
enforcement of prohibition laws
will not be difficult.
Some Think Law Strict.
"Through " personal investigation
and reports received at my office I
have been made aware of a feeling
among some citizens that the pres
ent law is too drastic, but there is
no doubt that public sentiment gen
erally favors a thorough trial of the
present law before attempting to
Director Hanley does not. regard
seriously, reports of illicit stjjlls be
ing operated at scattered points
over the state. There is no.efidence
of an organized band of "moon
shiners" and experience so far indi
cates individual operators are killing
off their own business by the qual
ity of liquor they produce, he as
serts. Perfecting Dry Organization.
Under instructions from Washing
ton, Director Hanley is visiting
each Nebraska county for confer
ences with county attorneys, sher
iffs, police chiefs and mayors to ar
range for thorough co-operation be
tween state, local and federal au
thorities in all prohibition enforce
ment measures. The ' 12 enforce
ment agents assigned to Nebraska
will work wholly in conjunction with
state and local officials under pres
ent plans, he said.

Kearney Paving Program
Is Halted by Injunction
Kearney, Neb., May 12. (Spe
cial.) District Judge Dungan of
Hastings, hearing evidence in a suit
here to restrain paving under a bid
rcently let by the city commission
ers, sustained the injunction, but not
because of irregularity in letting the
contract, which' was awarded to the
highest bidder, the Tyner Construc
tion company, Kansas City. The court
held the other firm bidding, the St.
Joseph Construction and Paving
company, had not lived up to con
tracts' itt many portions of the state
and also Ifeld that the city commis
sioners had acted entirely in accord
ance with the state laws in letting
their contract. Sufficient intersec
tional spavins monev was not avail
able to carry out the extensive pav
ing program planned. The commis
sioners neglected to issue their in
tersectional bonds when voted and
they were held to be void. Some
paving will be undertaken at once
and an additional $15,000 in intersec
tional paving bonds voted this year,
making it possible to complete a ma
