KNOCKS OUT FRANCHISE
DOWN IN NEBRASKA CITY
Some time since the city council
took up the matter of granting to the
Water and Light company of this
city a new franchise. The matter
was fought out at length in the
council and was opposed by Council
man Houston and when the council
passed the matter over his head he
objected and threatened suit. Then
the franchise was submitted to the
voters and they granted the fran
chise by a handsome majority. Coun
cflnian Houston then brought suit to
net the whole thing aside, claiming
that the franchise was granted on a
resolution and not an ordinance and
that the whole was a dual proposi
tion. He also charged that at the!
election the company had freely dis-'
tributed Intoxicants to influence the
The matter was heard before Ref
eree Dwyer, of Plattsraouth, who
made his findings and this afternoon
Judge Travis rendered a decision on
the questions and it was lengthy.
In this decision he held that it had
been shown that liquors had been
bought and distributed to influence
voters at the election. He held that
it was a resolution and not an ordi
nance that was adopted by the coun
cil and that the whole was a dual
proposition and should have been
In the whole the court knocks out
the franchise and the entire matter is
back where it was several years ago,
when the franchise of the company
expired and the matter was brought
up to the council. What will be done
by the company remains to be seen.
It may be they will drop the matter
for the present and permit things to
move along as they are and perhaps
secure some restraining order to pre
vent any one from molesting them
until the matter is adjusted and put
in proper form. Nebraska City News.

Elected Hut Not Seated.
The late election in Eight Mile
Grove precinct presents a knotty
proposition and legal tangle which
will be hard for the authorities or
courts to straighten out. Mr. 0
Ward received the votes of legal and

precinct, but through some oversight
of the election board of the precinct

There was nothing (to show the can
vasslng board that Mr. Ward had
been voted for, hence It never made
any declaration as to his election, and
in consequence no certificate of elec

without this preliminary document It
will be difficult for him to take his

had the butcher kill the bear, and
two of the quarters were brought to
Hatt & Son's market where the meat
was put on the block today at 50
cents per pound for the front quar

first bear's meat sold In Plattsmouth

said he did not want to kill the bear,
but the other man interested In him
wanted the pelt, which Mr. Clark
offered him $35.00 to leave on the

so the animal was slaughtered.
