Governor McMullen has returned from Cheyenne where he attended the annual conference of govei^ nors. He accompanied the governors as far as Cody on their Journey to Yellowstone park and then came home on account of press of ofticlal business. .Monday he paused from his labors as chairman of the state board of as sessment to talk to reporters about the conference and his experience in a country that w'aa the frontier only a few years ago. A little frontier life was put upon the stAge in front of the capitol at Cheyenne one evening during the conference. Dancing with Indian maidens was one of these. Several Indian princesses had expressed a desire to dance with governors of states. Governor McMullen of Nebraska and (tovernor Pinchot of Pennsylvania weer selected by managers of the affair to glide about the floor with the Indian princesses. Governor McMullen as the challenged party asked the privilege of having a slim and slender princess for his dancing partner. Whoever received this request misunderstood or the request was muddled in relaying. The result was Governor McMullen found be was to dance with an Indian princess whose weight was estimated at SuO pounds. They danced and danced for possibly half an hour. The governor was showing signs of exhaustion but as the princess could not understand his utterances there was no way to stop. The Indian music, with its tom-tom beating rythn^ically, indicated no place to quit. The dance stopped just when the princess appeared to be commencing to like the exercise. The governors at the conference discussed two matters, state finances and state’s rights. All were for law enforcement and none for modification of prohibition. Governor ,A1 Smith of New York was not there. Governor McMullen incidentally discussed farm relief. No one else did. Governor and Mrs. McMullen will go to Omaha Tuesday to meet a few of the returning governors and to give them a dinner at the country club. The governor and his wife accompanied the gubernatorial party from Cheyenne to Casper, Thermopolis and Cody, but did not go into Yellow.stone park. They visited the Shoshone dam and bathed in the hot waters that flow from the earth at Thermopolis. Governor McMullen was made vice president of the governor’s con- rerence and presided at the last ay’s session. He had ample time to visit his old friend of Nebraska football dajs, oGvernor Deru of cull. Pershing’s Son in Company K.

Department Head Buys Two Lots in Connection With Northeast Unit and Will Lay Big Trunk Main. Commissioner Schroeder. hurrying the process of pushing w'ater production and distribution to a satisfactory point before termination of his current administration next spring, on .Monday approved a deed to property 90 by 142 feet at Thirty-second and \V stieets. He is purchasing the property from Chester Kay at 13.500. The nt-w 1,000,000 gallon reservoir to be constructed at the Northeast Lincoln unit of the water department, will be immediately to the north of this property and the pump will be located on the land being purchased. This will afford inlet and outlet to the resei-voir without interference with actlivtles in the city’s playground. A house occupies a portion of the property and this, according to Mr. Schroeder, will be rented for the time being. Two wells, in operation long enough to convince the water de- partJtient head that they are going concerns, will flow into the leser- voir to be constructed this fall. Two more wells will be in harness at the new water supply unit before spring. Commissioner Schroeder will start at once the construction of a 12-lnch main to connect with the proposed reservoir and extend ing to W street. He also will build a 12-lnch trunk line along W street east to Thirty-seventh to feed into branch mains. "I guess that will be about all till my term expires next spring,” he said. The veteran councilman exhibited no enthusiasm when asked whether o rnot he will be a candidate in the spring to again succeed himself. Another water department project to go on thru the fall or until it la completed, Is the big coal storage vat now under construction at the A street station.

One year ago when the city awarded the contract for 15,000 tons, more or less, for the water department, he expressed the desire to be done with contract letting. With adequate storage facilities he expects to buy upon the open market when and where he pleases. This apparently will not come for another year. Coal bids were scheduled for the opening at Monday's council meeting. BOOZE CALLS FOR GRIEF Men Who Were Happy Face the Court and Hear Ihe Penalties Assessed.
