Suit to Oust Dean.
Attacks Rloht of State Board to Can
vass Vote on Amendments Court,
Takes the Request Under "Coiv
1 Lincoln, Feb. 2. Tlio first stop waa
taken tn the supremo judgeship con
test when implication was made to the
supremo court on bohnlf of W. D. Old
, ham, Governor Shallonbergor's latust
appointee as supremo judge, for per
mission to begin quo warranto pro
ceodlngs to oust Judge James R. Dean,
appointee of former Governor Sheldon.
The supremo court took the request
, under consideration.
1 A copy of the petition covering tho
i case from the standpoint of the plaint
Iff was filed with the application, and'
roviews tho fncts which are generally
I well known regarding the contest. The
i main point is the contention that tho
state board had no right to canvnss
tho vote, as was the case, of the
amendment under which Governor
Sheldon made his appointments.
The action is in behalf of Judge Old
ham alone, but both he and Judge Sul
livan, the two Democratic appointees,
are equally Interested. Judgo Oldham
waived his rights for trial before the
district court, and it is possible Judge
Dean may do the same, In order that
the matter may go direct to the court
of last resort.

After stating that tho Japanese are

TOWN LOT FRAUD REVELATIONS.
Tennessee Witnesses Testify In Mus
From developments in tho alleged
town lot fraud investigation by tho
grand Jury at Muskogee it is evident
representatives of the government are
certain that many Indictments will be
returned by tho grand Jury.
The testimony of. the Tennessee wit
nesses has proven a revelation. One
of the twenty-five witnesses from that
state said In a statement to the Asso
"When I was subpoenaed by tin
government to coile to Muskogee I
did not know thero waB such a town
on the map. I had never heard of It
and wondered what Uncle Sam wanted
mo for. Since my arrival I have
learned that I was once the owner of
n lour-acro lot here. I also learned
thnt in some mysterious manner the
lot nnd I had parted company and
someone had' signed my nnme to the
quit claim deed. That Is all I know
about it and I suppose that Is what
I'll have to tejl the Jury."
O. B. Pagan, the attorney general's
expert, and District Attorney W. J.
Gregg are now engaged In preparing
indictments, and Special Attorney S.
II. Rush and others will assist.
