John Beber Lost Three Fingers ud Se
cured Payment For Whole Hand.
The Lincoln Star of yesterday gives
the ending of a long contested case in
the district court of Lancaster county
as follows.wbich may prove of Interest
to the railroad employes In this city:
"After a long contest in the district
court and the supreme court, John A.
Beber, a brakeman, was today victori
ous over the Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen, which paid htm the amount
"Beber held a policy in the organiza
tion when, on May 10, l!i02, he cut otT
three lingers of his left hand while he
was chopping kindling. Hut the
Brotherhood refused to pay him, as
serting that his policy was payable
nly when he lost a hand complete
at the wrist or above it. For the loss
of three fingers there was no provision
in the policy.
"Beber brought suit in the district
court on November 23, 1901!. The case
was tried and decided in favor of the
defendant. An appeal was taken and
the supreme court reversed the deci
sion and remanded the case to the
district court for another trial.
"Today the defendant paid Beber
the amount in full together with the
Will Stadetman Resigns.
Will J. Stadelman has resigned his
position as manager of the Independ
ent Telephone company and disposed
of his holdings in the association and
is now a free-footed lord of creation.
Mr. Stadelman has had this in view
for some time, having disposed of his
property interests in Kearney some
time ago. He has bad in his hands a
more desirable proposition, which will
give blm a broader field of operation.
He has accepted a proposition to take
a trip around the world In the inter
est of a number of telephone organiza
tions to demonstrate to the foreigner
the advantages of their several sys
tems of telepboney at a very tempting
salary. Kearney regrets to lose Col.
Stadelman. He is one of the most en
ergetic and wide awake young men
that has ever made Kearney bis home,
and he will always hold a warm spot In
the hearts of his Kearney country
men, and the well wishes of all will
follow both him and his most estima
ble wife. Kearney Democrat.

GETTING ALONG VERY NICELY
Conductor "Stubbf Walters Will Recover
More Particulars About the Affray.
In speaking of the shooting of Con
ductor "Stubby" Walters yesterday,
the Omaha World-Herald of this morn
"An unknown man on Burlington
passenger train No. 4, easttound be
tween Ashland and Gretna, Wednes
day morning, shot and seriously wound
ed Conductor K. Walters, then placed
the muzzle of the revolver in his own
mouth and tired a shot that will cause
"When the train pulled Into Mem
phis, this man who had bought a
ticket for Ashland, boarded the train.
When his ticket was taken up by Con
ductor Walters, he expressed a desire
to go to Excelsior Springs, Mo. He
was told that he could buy a ticket at
Ashland to his destination. Reaching
Ashland he bought the ticket and
again boarded the train. This ticket
was Inspected by Conductor Walters
and the Omaha coupon torn off.
"After working hlstraln, Conductor
Walters went Into a coacli that was
being brought through deadhead and
sat down. Shortly after the stranger
entered the car walked to where Con
ductor Walters was sitting and with
out saying a word pulled a revolver
ami commenced tiring. One bullet
struck Conductor Walters In the left
shoulder, another passed through his
left side, just below the arm pit and a
third went wild, lodging in the roof
of the car. Then, almost Instantly,
the stranger placed the muzzel of the
revolver in his own mouth and tired.
The bullet passed slightly upward and
lodged at the base of the brain.
"At Gretna, Conductor Walters was
taken oil and sent to his home at Lin
coln. The stranger, who was un
conscious after the shooting, was
brought to Omaha and taken to the
"The shooting occurred in Sarpy
county and that county has an ar
rangement at the hospital by which
all of its cases are sent there.
"While it Is not known who the
stranger is, it is thought that he is a
laborer in the ice house at Memphis,
and that he was crazy. On his person
he had over $100 In bills. This money
was taken from his pocket and given
to the station agent at Gretna for
safekeeping. There were no letters
or papers about him to lead to an
identification, save a slip with the
name J. Kramer, with a Wisconsin
town as address. He Is a large man,
about .'(0 years of age, dark hair
and smooth shaven. While dressed in
the clothes of a laboring man, they
are practically new, except his shoes,
which are considerably worn. He had
a light colored soft hat."
Tho social to be given by tbe Young
People's Society of the St. Paul's

The Telephone Victory.
The overwhelming vote by which
the people of Omaha granted a fran
chise to the Independent telephone
company is a complete justification
for the fight made by tbe World-IIer
aid. This fight was begun last year,
continued In the spring campaign, car
ried into the city administration and
culminated In the battle of ballots on
Tbe verdict of the people Is that
the telephone monopoly In Omaha
shall end, and that competition shall
begin. Also that Omaha shall not be
longer Isolated from the surrounding
country, but shall be given the best
The World-Herald has made this
fight for tbe people not only In Omaha
but surrounding Omaha. No recent
achievement of a western newspaper
Is more notable than this victory won
In the face of powerful opposition and
without the slightest assistance of
other city newspapers. The triumph
was due to the fact that the World-
Herald was able to unite In the move
ment the progressive men of Omaha
atid the most representative citizens
outside of the city.
Omaha has spoken. Now let the
new ctcrprKc proceed. World-Herald

Sir William Napier, In his descrip
tion of the battle at Vera, sa)s, that
the center of ttie Spanish army was
defeated and turned to Might, not lis
tening to the words of the officers.
Then Havelock, a young oilicer, Jumped
forward and called on the Spaniards
to follow. Like a Mash he was in the
midst of the French soldiers and tbe
Spaniards after him. The surprised
enemy threw away the arms and lied.
The battle was won. Can you compare
this with our dally life? A little en
couragement drives a dlsea.se away.
