WILL ASK AN INJUNCTION.
Independents Appeal to Attorney Gen
eral to Invoke Ouster Order Sys
tems of Cass, Otoe and Sarpy Coun
ties Have Been Secured by Friends
of Bell Company.
Omaha, July 12. Telephone merg
ers are going on all over the state and
a battle Is now la progress between
the Bell and Independent telephone
tiosely following the announcement
that the Nebraska Telephone com
pany had secured control of the inde
pendent telephone companies of Cass,
Otoe rind Sarpy counties comes the
announcement from Lincoln that the
Independent telephone people have
asked the attorney general of Ne
braska to stop further mergers be
tween the Bell and Independent in
terests. In addition to the other mergers
comes the announcement that the Alli
ance telephone system, which was
recently sold to L. Q. Dow and who
took possession July 1, has been again
transferred, this time to the Ne
braska Telephone company, which
means that It Is now a part of the Bell
telephone system. A. D. Lane con
ducted the transfer. It is announced
that copper wires will be Installed
between Omaha, Alliance and Denver,
and also tl Crawford. The Alliance
system now numbers 775 city phones,
30 county phones and service is also
supplied to 130 telephones on con
necting lines owned by farmers and
Casper E. Yost, president of the
Nebraska Telephone company, said
that already 50,000 independent tele
phones of Nebraska were connected
with the Nebraska Telephone system
and that the addition of the phones
of Cass, Sarpy and Otoe counties
would add about 5,000 more.
The Duff and Parmele people have
sold out their independent telephone
Interests to the Nebraska Telephone
company and the owners of the Home
Telephone system of Sarpy county
have followed' suit. The Otoe county
Independents were owned by E. A.
and Ralph Duff, brothers, and the Cass
count lines by Tom and C. C. Par
mele, and everything goes in the deal.
This lets the Duffs and Parmeles out
of the business, except for their hold
ings in the plant In Omaha, which is
In the stage of regeneration. If It,
too, should ultimately land in the
hands of the Bell people. It would sur
prise no one.

CHANGE LAW OF DECEDENT
Supreme Court Holds Law of 1895 la
Ltncoln. July 11. The supremo
court hntided down four belated opin
ions, which make a material change.
In the law of decedents in Nebraska.
Judge Root wrote the decision, Chief
Justice Reese and Judge Sedgvlcli
dissenting from a portion of it
The court reaffirms its former de
cision, rendered several years ago,
but goes further and declares Invalid
a curative act of 1895, which had nev
er before been questioned. The Baker
act gave the! widow oPa deceased per
son the homestead in fee and au
thorized the county judge to set asldo
a homestoad for a widow.
That act was held unconstitutional
several years ago on the ground that
It was not properly passed ami be
cause It gave a county Judge power to
determine title to real estate. Tho
curative act of 1895 was Intended to
legalize the acts of county judges in
setting aside homesteads in fee to
widows. The supremo court now holds
that the curative act is unconstitu
tional because such an act is void in
itself. The result Is that tho law on-
forced prior to the Baker act Is now
the law and that widows may only
have a life Interest in a homestead.
After she gets her share the heirs
may take title In fee. It Is believed
that few cases will arise under tho
ruling because. In most case3 of di
vision of estates the statutes of limi
tations has run and litigation Is

I wish to call the attention of
horsemen to the conditions gov
erning the sales which will be
held at my new sale yards in
I have remodeled and rebuilt
the yards, making them large
enough to accommodate nearly
a thousand head of horses; each
yard is supplied with water, and
rackB for hay.
For the sales, the first of which
wilt bo held late in July, I intend
to do thorough and systematic
advertising. I will furnish an
experienced auctioneer who is
himself a horseman and a judge
of value. I will supply the yards
nnd water; the advertising; the
auctioneer; such help as is need'
ed on sale day; and a clerk, who
will carefully attend to all settle
ments; at the following rates:
$25.00 per car lot: $2.00 per head
if horses are sold singly or in
pairs. Hay and feed will be
furnished at the lowest possible
This will make it an easy mat
ter for horse growers in this sec
tion to find buyers, and at a cost
as low as at any sale market in
My wide acquaintance among
horsemen of the state; the ex
cellent railroad facilities of Al
liance, together with the number
of good horses raised in this vi
cinity, should make the establish
ment of this bam a certainty and
be of great benefit both to stock
growers and townspeople. If
you have horses to sell, see me
or write me at once as it is my
intention to put forth every hon
orable effort possible for the suc
cess of these sales and the first
sale will, without question, be a
Inlmmer and a rare opportunity
for horse growers to find horse
consumers at home
