The late I). M. Johnson who died
at his home in Weeping Water on
August G. 1919. was well known
throughout Cass county, where for
almost half a centurv he had made
his home and for a number of years
resided in l'lattsmouth while serv
ing as county tax collector. In
speaking of his death the Weeping
Water Republican has the follow
ing: Darwin Mervin Johnson was born
in Madison, Wis., on April 19, 1S5 4,
end passed away at his home in
Weeping Water at 7:25 p. in.. Wed
nesday, August 6. 1919. at the age
of G." years. 4 months and IS days.
He moved to Weeping Water in
1874, and on October 2, 1S75 mar
ried Miss Mahala Coon at Pli:tt!-
liicutlK To them four children
were born: Guy II., cf York; Mabel
Jameson. Clara E. Wight and Lu
cile of Weeping Water.
During all but the last few years
of his residence in Weeping Watr,
he was one of the town's moot prom
inent business men. He was for
many years a member of the Chris
tian Science church. He was also a
member of the order of Odd Fellows
and the. Masons, whose pood fellow
ship and companionship he most
thoroughly enjoyed during his act
On account of failing health htr
decided to go out of business and do
something that would take him out
of doors. During the last year he
failed very rapidly ami on the 7
of February was taken sick in Lin
coln, and on March 2nd was takn
to his bed at his home in Weeping
Water where he passed awav five
months and four days later.
All that medical skill and loving
hands could do for his comfort and
to bring him back to health were
of no avail.
All through the months of his ill
ness and as long as he was conscious
he was patient and cheerful. Every
thing done for his comfort pleased
him. and every little dainty prepar
ed for him to eat or drink was, as he
always expressed it, "the bet yet."
Toward the last, he slept most of
the time and always when asked if
he were tired, would answer, "yes,
He was a man who loved his home
and like his home town aliove every
thing. And, to those he left behind
to mourn and miss him. it is a great
consolation to know that his last
days were spent in the home he
liked so well, in the room he chose
for his own when the house was
built; and that the wife and four
children were with him to care for
him until the last spark of life
He had many friends and loved to
have them in his house. When he
became too ill to see' those who :ame
to see him he was greatly pleased
with the flowers and other remem
brances they. sent.
Short services were held at the
home at 4 p. m., Saturday, conduct

torney General Ayres representing

Morning decides both of these in

was as to whether the act or reso
lution ratifying the amendment was
one which under the initiative and
referendum amendment to the state
constitution was subject to refer
ence to the voters. Many authori
ties are cited to the effect that any
action taken by a legislative body
or court is an "act" within tho
meaning of the law and it i declar
ed that any matter is subject to
reference except those expressly ex
?epted in the referendum amend

as to what constitutes tho "legisla

titution provides for the ratifica
tion of amendments to the national
constitution by the ' legislatures" of
the various states and it was argued
