Wheret IThe suit of the city of Ne
braska Ci $ against tho Water & Light
company has beeu removed, upon the
applicalio T pf the water company, to
the United $tates circuit court upon
the grouuo tf local prejudices among

moval lion .jSarnuel M. Chapman, ex-
judge of tftj district court for this
judicial Uis.ric:, mauo an uiiiuaviti.ii
w liich oebo -i--ik;i:owing language
"That the feeling and sentiments of
tho people of Ot o county ate very
sttong against the Water & Light
company or any of its assigns and
counsel; that the m ;yor and certain
couueiitnen of said city of Nebraska
City purposely and ih pursuance of
a weli-organ ized conspiracy manufac
tured public opinion against tho
plaintiff and attempted to control af
fiant as judge in tho trial of said case."
Therefore, lie it resolved by the
mayor ai d council of Nebraska City:
I. That we denounce the statements
contained in the affidavit of ex-Judsre
Chapman, sis above set fo: th, as un
true and malicious, as having no pos
sible foundation in fact, and as a
slander upon the fair name of the city,
its ofiiciais and people.
II. That we call upon Judge Chap
man to name the man or men, mayor
or councilman, who "purposely and
in pursuance of a well-oriranizotl con
spiracy manufactured public opinion
against the plaint ill (W.Uer & Light
company) and attempted to control af
fiant (Judge Chanman) as judge in the
trial of said cause''' or stnnd cnarye-d
with a wilful and cruel slander.
III. That if Judge Chapman has -n
his posses-ion any evidence going to
establish the existence of a "well-organized
conspiiaey'" or of any con
spiracy whatever to manufacture pub
lie opinion against the Water Sc Light
company, it is his duty to produce it,
and especially to expose those who
"attempted to control said affiant
as judge in the trial of said cause."
IV. That in making such affidavit
Judge Chapman has shown the exist
ence of prejudice against the city, and
partiality for the water company, and
his unfitness for tho position of judge."
