LAW IS THRESHED OUT
Named as Beneficiary Man Who
Couldn't Collect and Estate
Now Claims Proceeds.
An odd legal point was involved in
a iawsuit argued in .supreme court
Monday morning. When O. T. Strib

policy in the National Counc'li An
nuity association, afterward:; absorb
ed by the Fraternal Aid Fnion. He
owed Buckstaff Bros., of Lincoln
some money, and in order to insure
the payment of this debt he took the
policy out with A. H. Buckstaff, as
beneficiary. The lay does not per
mit fraternal policies t'o be issued to
other than relatives or dependents.
Buckstaff was named as a dependent.
Strihling paid the premiums on the
policy for twenty years, and when
he died Buckstaff declined to claim
the money as a dependent, because
Suit was then begun against the
union by the widow and children of
Stribling. on the theory that where
the beneficiary named fails the es
tate of the policy-holder becomes the
proper person to receive the proceeds.
The fraternal society insisted that
the policy was secured by fraud;
that if it had known in what relation
Buckstaff stocd it would not have is
sued the policy; that the fraudulent
purpose was still more evident from
the testimony of the widow that they
intended to pay the debt to Buckstaff
out of the proceeds of the policy,
and that the suit wa3 really prose

T. S. Allen won for the estate in
the lower court, and Judge Fawcett
argued for the society in the higher
court. ' The two gentlemen became
involved in a mild dispute as to the
correctness of a biblical quotation
with respect to the voice of Jacob,

was being prosecuted for the heirs in
