A t'ecnllar l.rcat Taa(l
A novel situation appears in a North
Carolina case, repectini the jurislic-
tion of the crime of murder committed
by shootinff from that state into Ten
nessee, wtete the person killed was
standing when struck. After the su-
reme court of North Carolina de
cided that thre was no jurisdiction
in that state over the crime because
he stroke wa.i,in leal contemplation,
given in Tennessee, the prisoner was
arrested in North Carolina as a fugi
tive from justice, as we learn from
counsel in the cae. on the basis of an
indictment for the murder found in
Tennessee, whereupon his counsel
sued out : writ of habeas corpus.
claiming that he was not liable to ex
tradition because he had never t!ed
from the demanding state and there
fore was not a fugitive. From a deel
cision ajrainst the prisoner, an appeal
has been taken and is now pending in
the supreme court of North Carolina.
The North Carolina court having de
cided against its own jurisdiction of
the murder, on the ground of the pris
oner s constructive presence tnlen-
nes.see where the ball struck the vic
tim, has now a pretty severe test of the
theory of constructive presence. It
mav be consistent to say that if he
was constructively present for the pur
pose of dealing the blow, he was so
much constructively present that his
actual presence in another state con
stitutes an escape from Tennessee as
a fugitive from its justice. If the court
decides that he is not a fugitive from
Tennessee and cannot be surrendered
the only apparent way to secure a con
viction wDuld be to abduct the mur
derer and carry him into the jurisdic
tion of the courts of Tennessee
Otherwise."borler ruffians" will nil a
larger place than ever in crimina
annals. A newspaper item informs
us since the above was written tha
the prisoner won his case and has
tx?en discharged. Case and Corn
Tim Staltt ApMlv
Lincoln News: "The case from Ilol
county involving the constitutionality
of the law requiring intersecting rail
ways to put in connecting switches
has reached the supreme court. This
case was begun at O'Neill at the Octo
ber term of district court in that city
In it tho Htate board of transportation
prayed for an alternative writ of man
damua to compel the Sioux City,OW'ei
& Western railroad and the Fremont
KIkhorn & Missouri Valley railroad to
put in a connecting switch at O'Neil
and to put in force a joint schedule o
rates for freight in car lots from every
point on one line to every point on the
ouici. jy supination tne case was
heard by. Jndgo Chapman of Cass
county, instead of by Judge Kinkead
as the sitting was at Omaha. The de
fendants demurred to the application
alleging, in addition to the usual points
of a general demurrer, that the pre
tended act of tbe legislature under
which tho action was brought was un
constitutional and void for tho reason
that it deprived defendants of their
property without due process of law
and denied defendants equal protec
tion of the law. Judge Chapman sus
tained the demurrer and dismissed the
case, and the state board of transpor
tation now comes to the supremecourt
to decide the cjueation of constitution
ality." Jos. Shera, the Itock liTuiTs mer
chant, was in town Wednesday on his
way to Omaha.
The County 1'oor Farm.
The county commissioneis Friday
awarded the management of the
county poor farm, just west of town.
to Mr. II. F. Dean, a resident of Hock
MulTs precinct near Murray. Mr.
ean's bid was to pay 11-0 for the rent
of the farm land and to board inmates
or j per week. There were two or
three lower bids than Mr. Dean's, that
of Jas. (Jrace in particular, whoso of.
er, if accepted, would save the county
some $150 over that of Dean'n. The
atter gentleman is a farmer of con
siderable experience and bad a peti-
ion largely signed by intluential citi-
yens, which especially recommenueu
him as a person well-quaiilied to man
age the furm. The board doubtless
acted conscientiously in the matter.
and although there ate a few com
plaints, the awaid, we hope, will prove
for the best interests of the county.
Mr. Dean will succeed Sheriff Liken
ary, who was also a bidder, during
the month of March in the manage
ment of the farm.
In asking for bids the board has
made it possible for the. saving of sev
eral hundred dollars to the county, as
there exists that difference between
lr. Dean's bid and the present fig

Representative John Davies of Cass
is foiniust, and righteously too, the
idea of voting an increased appiopria
tion of additional funds to the state
university. The state treasury is in a
fair way to become absolutely empty
and it seems that ordinary sense would
lictate to the state legislature that
eeouomv should be practiced. 1 he
Lincoln Journal, as could be expected,
favors the university grab and because
Mr. Daies is numbered among the
opposition, it deliver itself of the
following at the expense of the repre
sentative from Cass: "ISrother Davie'
sympathy with the jHor lny on the
rairie" and his determination to give
nm money from the state treasury in
reference to wasting it on the "(J reek
and Latin trofessor in his warm
room,'' us his excuse for refusing to
vote for the completion of the library
building and the provisions for suffi
cient other room in the university
buildings to accommodate the hoys on
the prairie who would like as good an
education, t ei haps, as the gentleman
from Cass received either at public or
private expense, is rather short
sighted. Nebraska is a great and
rich state, notwithstanding the tem
porary disaster of a short crop or two.
the toor boy will doubtless weather
the storm this 3 ear and want to come
to the university just as soon as the
state is restored to it original pros
perity ami thrift. The stateman who
thinks he can fool the poor boy on the
prairie with that sort of rot will wake
up some morning to discaverthat the
poor boy has a memory and will not
yoon forgive that species of detnag -
guery. The poor boy on the prairie
can stand short commons for a year.
if necessary, as many of the poor boys
that grow up tefore him all the way
from the I'enobscot have stood them
before him. Hut if the advantages
that the people of the United States
have heretofore insisted upon giving
the poor boy in the way of an educa
tion are to be withheld from our
poor Ijoys on the prairie by the par
simony of the politicians of the stamp
of the Cass county statemen, they may
soon rise up to demand the reason
All of which argues absolutely noth
ing. When the Lincoln Journal, that
defender of corruption and plunder in
state affairs, abuses anyone it can be
put down as plain truth that the per
son abused ii 0:1 the right track.

the first time in years thero is an open
