B. S M. Relief Department Win.
The supreme court has reversed and
remanded the suit of Elizabeth A.
Healy against the C B. & y. Railroad
company, error irom miugias county.
Mrs. Ilealy sued upon a certificate of
membership Issued to Cornelius II.
Ilealy In the Insurance organization
known as Burlington relief depart
ment. This matter is reversed be-
cause .Mrs. lleaiy naa rormeriy sueu
the company to recover damages un
der the statutes for causing the death
of her husband. The court says that
a suit by an administrator of a de
ceased employe of the U. B. ij. Kail
road company who was a member of
that company to recover damages un
der the statutes for wrongfully caus
ing the death of said employe is a bar
to subsequent action upon the mem
bership certificate in said department
when the administrator is the same
person named as lietietiolary In the
contract. Mrs. llealy's suit under the
statutes to recover damages was dis
missed by her prior to the beginning
of the new suit against the relief de
partment. WANTS BONDS REMOVED

A Hog Causes Trouble,
A special from Weeping Water says
"A very unusual thing for this part of
the country happened near here Irl
day evening. A family living a mile
or two out of town are, or were, the
owners of a hog and on Friday evening
a man came to buy It. The wife
claimed half the hog and told the
buyer she would 'hold him for half the
price. Then a dispute arose between
the husband and wife as to the owner
ship. The husband, not being able to
keep up tils end of the dispute with
his tongue, resorted to lists and struck
the wife two or three blows. She
came to town and made complaint be
fore Justice Barnes and had the hus
band arrested. Yesterday he was ar
rested, pleaded guilty and was fined
tlO and costs, amounting to over 17
which he paid."

The following from an exchange tits
this town so well that wecannot resist
publishing It: "There Is no reason
able excuse for any man to live In a
town If he doesn't like It. If you have
no word of commendation to say for
your town, its Institutions or people,
emigrate. You won't stop the town
clock by going away. The church bells
will have the some musical ring, the
little dogs will play just as well and
the pure air, bright sunshine, and
sparkling water will have the same
health-giving properties. Speak a good
word for your neighbors. If you can: If
you cannot, don't everlastingly enlarge
on their faults. If you have become
thoroughly disgusted, move away; go
somewhere where things will suit
No Rehearing for Mrs. Llllle.
The supreme court for the third
time has overruled a motion tiled by
Judge F. G. Harmer for a rehearing In
the Llllle murderca.se. Refusal was
granted him to tile the motion. Mrs.
Llllle Is serving a life sentence for the
murder of hcrhusband. Judge Hamcr,
as a right allowed him bylaw, tiled a
motion for a rehearing within forty
days after the affirmance of the Judg
ment. The court gave the motion
consldcrat Ion and overruled It. Twice
since then Mr. Hamer has asked leave
to tile a motion for a rehearing and has
each time explained his reasons for
desiring this privilege.

BED SOCKS AGAIN WINNERS
Take Hard Game From Diamond "C" and
Another Is Won From Cedar j
The Bed Socks baseball aggregation
by some fast, playing on the home
grounds took a game from the Dia
mond "C" team of South Omaha Sat
urday afternoon, and on Sunday after
noon repeated this good work by walk
ing away from the Cedar Creek team
with the honors of a game
played on their victims' field.
Thus have the boys added two more
victories to their brilliant record,
which contains not a single defeat.
The Cudahy Diamond "C" team,
under Manager Whltlock, arrived In
this city Saturday afternoon, with
their colors flying and an unbroken
record of a victorious season. The
opposing team lineup for the contest
at 4:3o p. m. and at the start t he vis

one score In the first Inning, and hold

when they rallied from the stupor and

below a statement of the condition of
the Hastings plant and what muni

In the past live years. It not only
shows It to be a paying Investment for
a municipality but it also shows
magnificent saving In expense of city

cess of this plant after the years' op
eration Is very gratifying, and makes
a strong exhibit for municipal light

this plant for the live years were over
13,ooo more than the disbursements
It has paid this much over operating
expenses upon light and power sold
leaving out the fact or the lighting of
the city. The number of street lamps
used In Hastings would have cost, If
paid for to a private company, over
20,000 for the five years since the

FINDS HIS MOTHER DEAD
Son Comes Home on Visit to Her But She

of Saturday, Juno !, says: "Mrs.

years of age, was found dead at her

to discover his inoilier lying on the
floor. Neighbors were summoned, the
windows broken open and a physician
hastily summoned, who pronounced
her dead-death being caused from
heart trouble due to organic heart
trouble, from which she lias been a
sufferer for some time. Apparently
she had been dead about an hour. She
was at a' neighbor's the evening pre
vious and was In as good health as
usual. She had just finished breakfast,
;is the breakfast dishes and part of a
cup of coffee were on the table and
death came when she began to do up
the morning work, even before she had
the house opened. Coroner Clements,
who resides here, was summoned ami
declared an Inquest unnecessary. The
funeral will lie held from the Christian

An Exciting Runaway.
great deal of excitement was oc
casioned Monday by a runaway
team dashing down Main street drag
ging an overturned delivery wagon,
that was somewhat mashed up, and in
this way disturbing the tranquility
that generally exists along Main street
about 10 o'clock. The cause for the
disturbance originated on south Sixth
street hill while Jay Madsen was driv
ing the delivery wagon belonging to
L. B. Kgcnberger.' One (die of the
tongue came d'jwn, frightening the
horses and preventing the driver from
controlling or guiding the horses
The team dashed down Sixth, swerv
ing from one side of the street to the
other, until they collided with a tele
phone pole near the alley by Hlld's fur
niture store, and caused Jay to fall
from the wagon. Perhaps It was for
tunate that he was thus knocked from
the wagon, for should ho have remain
ed, he would certainly have been seri
ously Injured, when the wagon was
overturned by the team turning ab
ruptly toward the east and running
down Main street, with the demolish-
wagon still clinging to them. The
team was captured near the corner of
Third and Main, and freed from the
damaged vehicle. Beside a few bruises,
scratches and a bad shaking up, Jay
Madsen escaped uninjured.

CAUSE OF DEATH UNKNOWN
Further Particulars Regarding the Death
of Wesley J. Barr.
A special from (ireenwoi d gives tin
following particulars regarding tin;
death of Wesley .1. llarr: "Wesley J.
Barr was arrested by the marshal on
Saturday evening. When the marshal
went to t he bast lie with his breakfast
on Sunday morning Barr was lying on
the floor dead. Coroner Clements of
Kim wood was notified and the body
was ordered cared for until Monday
morning when a jury was Impaneled.
A post mortem held on request of I he
jury decided that Barr met his death
by some cause not made visible by the
examination. An Indentation of ,Ik
skull showed he had received an injury
The verdict of the jury conformed to
these facts. The deceased had been
released from the hospital at Lincoln
some two months back, Inning been

I o the Journal's account eterday
we. were mistaken in the name of tho
dead man. Wesley .1. I'.arr is not it
son of D. K, Barr, and Is no relation
whatever tu that gentleman. It was
rumored about Greenwood that the
night lie was arrested .begot jnto.a
light with one of his companions and
that he was struck on the head with a
beer hot tie, but, upon examinat ion it
was found that the Indenture was an
old wound. It seems that there were
four In the party, but Barr was the
only one run In. His face was consid
erably scratched and one of the party
who was with him Immediately left
town, which aroused suspicion of foul
play. The result of the examination
resulted In a verdict of the jury as re
ported in the above special.
We regret that we connected our
friend, D. K. Barr, In any way in the
alTalr, but it was done through the-
fact that, he was the one who Informed

Dipsomnnlnc Law Upheld.
That the dipsomaniac law is consti
tutional in the main Is the decision of
the court In the application of John
Schwartlng for a writ of habeas cor
pus. The court decides that the law
Is pari materia of other laws providing
for the detention, care and discharge
of persons committed to the hospital
for the Insane and must be constructed
In connection therewith. That part
of the law which provides for paroling
dipsomaniacs, requiring them to re
frain from the use of liquor and to
keep out of the company of drinkers,
was declared unconst Itutlonal. Judge
Let ton wrote the decision.
The decision states that:
The law Is an exercise of the pater
nal care of the state, designed for the
benefit of those persons whose mental
llbre lias U'come so weakened by the
excessive use of Intoxicants and nar
cotics that they are unable to refrain
from an undue Indulgence In the samo
and In whom the craving has becomo
so Intense as to be In the nature of a
The law Is not enacted to punish
crime and Is by no means penal in Its
nature. When the dipsomaniac Is re
leased, he stands on an equality with
all other citizens. Insofar as the pro
visions of section 7 provide for the re
straint of persons who have been cured,
they arc In contllct with the constitu
tion and must fall.
The application of John Swartlng
for w rit of habeas corpus Is denied.
