Before .Indue Archer,
Max Herman filed complaint be
fore the police judge averlng and al
leging that one Alex McQuary had
been guilty of violating the peace
ordinance and had been fighting. A
warrant was issued and the parties
appeared before the court. The evi
dence developed that the row started
by McQuary's children applying the
name "Sheeny" to Max and his fam
ily and instead of making the com
plaint to the parents of the children
Max had thought to correct the chil
dren himself and seized one of the
boys and began to administer what
seemed to Max to be suitable pun
ishment for so grave an offense.
When the father of the child heard
of the muss he went to Max and fell
on him and smote him entirely too
boistriously to comport with Max's
Idea of law observance.
The court listened pntiently to
both sides of the controversy and fin
ally refused to "bring forth his cele
brated brand of justice," but stated'
to the parties that if he fined one
he would have to fine both, and
that if they would go hence and keep
on opposite sides of the street and
refrain in future from violating the
peace ordinance, he would dismiss
the complaint without fining either
party. The parties readily agreed to
do this so the matter was dropped.

from Nebraska City, last evening,
where he had been for two days list

in the contested case of Dr. Hustin
vs. The City Council and City and

The plaintiff was represented by J.
C. Watson, F. E. Warren and A. P.
Moran. The defendant city and coun
cil were represented by Paul Jessen,
and the water company by Pitzer &

guments on both sides of the case
were very able and exhaustive. The

W. J. O'Brien, superintendent of

his wife were in the city today. Mr,
O'Brien looked after the state car
at the shops and Mrs. O'Brien
call on friends. The special fish car
has been in the local shops for two
weeks for repairs, and Mr. O'Brien
was here to look after some little de
tails concerning the refitting and re
pairs. The fisheries are in ship
shape, the drouth never affecting
the crop in the least. The pools
and ponds are supplied by natural
springs and may be affected slightly
by evaporation in a dry time, but not
sufficient to cause any trouble. Mr
O'Brien expects to siene the Platte
and the Missouri near Plattsmouth
again this fall for specimens of fish
with which to stock the pools at the
Attorney General Thompson Gives
Opinion cn Proposit-on to Reopen
Ballot Boxes, Holding Recount Is
Legal Says Action Should Ee
Taken When Affidavits Are Filed.
Lincoln, Aug. 23. Attorney General
Thompson, in reply to an inquiry from
Gage county, held that it Is proper and
legal for the tuuvassmg boards li
open the ballot boxes and recount the
bullets when a recount Is demanded
and the proper affidavits are filed.
Several county attorneys have hold
that the county canvassing boards
have no authority to open the ballot
boxes and count the ballots until or
dered to do so by the court. The at
torney general holds further that after
the recount Is made it is the duty of
the canvassing boards to transmit to
the state canvassing board the figures
as shown by the recount.
The opinion of Attorney General
Taompson declaring that If an affi
davit Is filed demanding it, a recount
must be made in any or all counties,
will probably cause a complete reran
vass of the votes cast In the last primary.
Though somewhat abated, owing to
the first news received from Butler
and Cnss counties, Interest In the re
count of the primary ballots was In
tense around the executive office. Dur
ing the day the governor received
word that the recount In Butler coun
ty had resulted in a net gain for Dnhl-
man of one vote, while Shallenberger
gained three votes In Cass county.
