SUIT TO COLLECT
Case of Mrs. Annie Dollie Gaster vs.
the Woodmen of the World Starts
Today in the. District Court.
Ficm Friday's Daily.
This morning the time of the dis
trict court was taken up in selecting
the jury that is to try the case of Mrs.
Annie Dollie Gaster against the Wood
men of the World, to collect there
from an insurance policy for $2,000
which was carried by the husband
of the plaintiff, Albert Gaster, in
the fraternal insurance company. .
Mr. Gaster died in this city July
6. 1920. and his lifeless body was dis
covered by the wife and step son
who returned home on July 7th from
a visit in South Dakota, and found
on entering the house the body of
the husband and stepfather stretch
ed on the bed and in a lifeless con
dition. There was also found a
small bottle of crystal strychnine
and at the time it was supposed that
this was the cause of the death-although
no reason could be ascribed
for Mr. Gaster taking his life.
At the time of the death the mem
bers of the family had expressed the
belief that the death had been caused
by heart trouble and not by the use
of the strychnine. The body of Mr.
Gaster was examined by Dr. P. J.
Flynn as soon as discovered and it
was decided that death had oc
curred from twenty-four to thirty
six hours prior to the finding of the
Mr. Gaster at the time of his death
was a member of Evergreen camp.
Woodmen of the World of this city
and carried in that society a life
insurance policy for the sum of
$2,000, and the head offices of the
Woodmen refused to pay the amount
of the pdlicy under the conditions
of the death of the policy holder.
The mother of Albert Gaster, re
siding at West Point, Neb., appears
as an intervenor in the case, through
her attorney Geo. M. Tunnison of
Omaha, claiming that the marriage
existing between Mr. and Mrs. Gaster
was illegal owing to the fact that
Mrs. Gaster was married at the time
of her marriage to Mr. Gaster, and
that the insurance should be paid
to the mother. The plaintiff in. the
case claims that the first husband of
the plaintiff had been absent for a
period of more than one year and
was presumed to be dead when the
second marriage occurred.
The Woodmen of the World con
tended that the fact that the claims
made in the application for the in
surance were fradulent and invalidat
ed the policy and also that the de
ceased came to his death through
the use of poison and this, too, con
stituted a reason that the company
should 5 not be held liable for the
amount' of the policy.
The jury in the case is composed
of the" following: H. II .Gerbling,
Frank H. Sehuldice, James E. Grif
fin, Henry Crozier, Bert Philpot, John
Murdoch. C. H. Lewis. W. T. Hutch

STILL AFTER THE
Department of Public Works Active
Rounding Up Persons Who Drive
Cars Without License.
George E. Johnson, secretary to
the department of public works, has
been doing everything possibzle to co
operate with the various officials in
the different parts of the state sinca
the first of the year in the collection
of automobile license tax. Since
January 16. .Mr. Johnson has had
special agents in eighty of the dif
ferent county seats over the stafe.
The special agents report that many
cars are being laid up and not used
because of the owners of the auto
mobiles have not the means to buy
automobile license numbers and on
account of the shortage of funds at
home they prefer to wait until they
get ready to use their automobiles
in the spring before they invest in
an automobile number. In some
counties, the county treasuries re
port that there are more automo
bile numbers sold in their counties
than at this time last year and in oth
er counties sales are running very
short. The shortage seems to appear
mostly in -the western part of the
state and in the sand hill country.
Mr. Johnson intends to keep the mon
ey in the hands of the different coun
ty treasurers and has instructed all
of his special agents to file a com
plaint against any operating an auto
mobile on a delinquent automobile
number and to file a complaint
against any operating without any
number. One of the problems which
has given the department much grief
during the past two years will be ov
ercome when the legislature passes
a bill which will not permit an in
dividual to run a dealer's number.
The treasurers of the various coun
ties are a little more interested this
year because the department of pub
lic, works permits them to keep most
of the money in their own hands un
til it is ready to be used on the

brought here from Nebraska City on
a change of venue and us the final
triumph of the defendant in his long
fight for freedom. On the first trial

to the state supreme court the case
was sent back on error, the authori

presentation of the claim that the
young man could not secure a fair
trial in Otoe county, was granted a
trial in Cass county and. the result
has been that he has won in his
fight and goes forth a free man from
the charges preferred against him by
the Otoe county authorities.
