SYLABUS IN THE MATTER
OF KERR VS. GERING S CO.
The following is the sylahus of the
supreme court's decision In the mat
ter of Kerr vs. Gering & Co., judg
ment of the district court reversed
and permit cancelled, Barnes, Judge:
"1. A judgment of the district
ourt dismissing an appeal' from the
rder of a licensing hoard granting a
druggists permit to sell intoxicating
liquors Is a final judgment from
which an appeal may be taken to the
supreme court, and the fact that the
district court assumes to direct fur
ther action by the licensing board
does not deprive the aggrieved party
f that right.
"2. The statute provides that on
an appeal from the order of the
licensing board the evidence taken
before that board shall he certified to
the district court and the case be
tried there and determined upon
such evidence only; and where an ap
peal Is prosecuted from the judgment
of the district court the clerk of that
court i3 required to certify such tran
script of the evidence to the court of
review. When this is properly done
a motion to dismiss the appeal for
want of a bill of exceptions should be

said to present only a moot question
If heard during the term of the
license or permit, unless It appears
that the same has been relinquished
by the applicant and cancelled by the
action of the licensing board.
"4. Where It Is Bhown by compe
tent evidence that the applicant for
the permit ha3 violated the provisions
of chapter 50 of the compiled statutes
commonly called the Slocum law, dur

laughing and joking Just a few mln
utes before his death. lie was sitting
in the pool hall watching a game of
pool, when one of the party noticed
Mr. Fricke. and thinking lie was

answer the men at once went to him

Stamp Act It Revived and Passed,
House Members Being Allowed Fif
teen Cents Day for Postage Bill for
Lower Charges at Stock Yards.
Lincoln, Jan 14. A resolution fa
or'ng San Francisco as the logical
point for the proposed Panama canal
exposition was introduced in the
house by W. A. Prince of Hall county
and ono in the senate by Senator 1 lb
bet3. The resolution seta forth as
four reasons for the choico, the bene
fit to the state from the passing across
it of thousands of people, the opportu
nity 1o advertise its resources, the
benefit from those who stop on their
way, and the benefit to the transporta
tion companies of this state. The res
elation was laid over under the rules
to be taken up next week.
Stamp Act Revived and Passed,
Although the usual custom of fur
nishing stamps to members of the
house aggregating 'an amount of $1)00
during the session has been once defi
nitely abandoned this year, it was
taken up again and successfully car
rled through. The members nave
many inquiries for information and
topics of bills and hesitate to expend
their own good pennies for postage
so when DoBtal of Cutler moved to re
consider the former action he was vig
orously supported. Gerde3 of Richard
eon, who made the fight against the
resolution before, tried to have the
amount cut down from 15 to 10 cents
a day, but that failed also. Twenty
one Republicans and thirteen Demo
crnts voted against the measure and
It was carried by an overwhelming
BUI Cuts Stock Yards Rates.
A bill declaring stock yards to be
public markets and fixing the rates to
be charged for taking care of stock
was introduced in the house by Repre
sentatives W. Z. Taylor and Frank
Dolezal. The introduction of this b.
recalls the long and bitter fight thp
was made in the thirty-first session
of the house by Taylor and hi
rrlend3 to get a similar measur
through. , The bill this year provide
that charges for loadin;- and unload
lng, watering and weighing, slnill not
exceed $ii a load. Yarding, loading nn
watering charges are fixed at 20 cent
per head, calves 8 cents, horses
mules 2" cents, hogs 6 cents and shee
4 cents. Hay must not bo charge
for at a rate of more than 23 cent
prr hundred pounds more than th
wholesale price in the Fame marl-'
on the same day, or similarly 33 cent
over the wholesale price per bushel

ROCKEFELLER AFFIDAVIT FUSE
Quite a serious accident occurred
of Martin Steppat, of this city, was
driving to Plattsmouth from the
farm with his customary light wagon
load of milk. When the young man
reached tho hill north of the ceme
tery, and had started down the east
incline, ono of the tugs came loose
from the singletree, allowing the end
of the singletree to project forward,
and the wagon crowding the team
tho horse on that side received a jab
from the singletree which started the
team, which booh became unmanage
able. Before reaching the little
school house, east of the cemetery,
the wagon, with Its load was over
turned into the ditch on the south
sido of tho road.
Gustave, alighting on his head In
the wire fence, received some severe
cuts on the head and one hand. He
got up and made his way to the resi
dence of Harry Smith, where he
washed the blood from his head. Ills
brothers, August and Frank, were
communicated with by 'phone and
they came to his assistance immedl
ately, taking Gustave to Dr. Living
stone's office, where his injuries
were dressed, and then took him back
to the farm.
The team continued to run, com
ing on down town and were caught
near Charles Martin's livery barn at
the corner of Sixth and Vine streets
The damage to the vehicle was slight,
outside of a broken tongue. The milk
cans were overturned and the ship
ment was a total loss.
It is thought the accident could
have been avoided If the team had
been stopped as soon as the ldoso tug
had been noticed, but as the buggy
was running without the horses, Gus
tave thought he would rehltch the
tug when he reached the bottom of
the hill. Rut before that point was
reached the team had gotten beyond
his control and the cold morning
made the horses more anxious to
take a spin than they otherwise
would have been.
It Is fortunate that In tho mlxup
the young man was not more serious
ly injured. As It Is he will have a
sore head and hand for several days.

Why? Can you answer this?
The Journal has often wondered
why such things were done In this
"land of the free and the home of
the brave," and cannot give any
reason for the existence of a law that
can do such things. But, maybe this
will pass under the observation of
someone who can answer "Inquirer."
