It 13 reported that Eli Manspeaker
claims to have given a bond as den
uty sheriff to his principal, Sheriff
Qulnton. Where Is the record of
such bond? Where is the authority
for a deputy sheriff giving a bond to
his principal? . Is it possible that
Sheriff Qulnton and his Bo-called dep
uty, Ell Manspeaker, are ignorant of
the law settled by our supreme
court: In the 34th Nebraska re
ports, page 66, RIggs vs. Miller, our
supreme court settled the law as fol
lows: "A deputy sheriff is required
to give a bond for the same amount
as his principal and the bond of such
deputy must run to the county in
which he is appointed." "Must run
to the county In which he was ap
pointed." Can language be plainer?

Albany, where the meeting was held.
Mr. Murphy was selected as tempo
rary stake and forfeit holder. The
meeting was held In the banquet hall

cosmopolitan gathering, includina

was an army of photographers, who
aimed a battery of cameras on the
principals and filled the room wjth
smoke. Those who came merely to see
the two big representatives of the
roped square and listen to the pro
ceedings spent an enjoyable and in
teresting time. Others who came
with the expectancy of seeine Jeffries

were agreeably disappointed. There
was no idle talk exchanged. In fart.
the men discussed matters with Ches-
torflcldlan politeness and the proceed
ing was conducted in an earnest, busi
ness like manner.
The only time that Johnson balked
was when Jeffries suggested that they
make a side bet of $20,00.
VANDERBILT RACE IS Gf
Many Precautions Have Been Taken
to Prevent Injury.
Garden City, L. I., Oct. 30. Although
the race for tho Vantlerbllt cup was
started at 9 o'clock this morning, in
stead of at daybreak, as in former
years, the same fantastic scenes which
Jn former years have made the night
before the race so picturesque and
wierd were enacted during the hours
which preceded the unleashing of the
twenty-six cars which started as com
petitors for the famous trophy.
Extraordinary precautions have been
taken, however, to render the course
safer by banking all turns. At the
same time this assurance ngalnst spills
offers an incentive to reckless drlvjna
without throttling down.
Strang, who is piloting one of the
Flat cars, is looked upon by many aa
a sure winner. He has a formidable
rival, however, In Chevrolet, who Is
at the wheel of the Bulck. A close
contest between the two Is promised.
