THE NERBASKA INDEPENDENT
EUGENE MOORE' DEFENSE
Jtine 3, 1879
Will Ba Practically the Same As That
On Which Hilton Escaped.
The case of the state against ex-Auditor
Moore was reached in the district
court of Lancaster county last Friday.
Moore'B attorney filed a demurrer to
three of the counts in the information
and a motion to quash the remaining
six counts. By agreement the argument
of the motions was put over for one
week, until 10:30 a. m. Saturday,
Moore sets up practically the same de
fense as that made by ex-Oil Inspector
Hilton. He claims that he was not
uthorized under the statutes to collect
oney for the state and practically
asserts that the fees paid to him by in
surant companies should have been
paid to the state treasurer by them,
lie alleges that he was not the officer
charged with the collection, receipt, safe
keeping, transfer and disbursement of
public money for the state of Nebraska.

one and involves only the question of
whether fees should be paid to the state
treasurer and the treasurer's receipt
presented to the auditor upon which he
should issue a license to the company to
transact business in this state, or
whether the company cau pay the fee to
the auditor for the license and the audi
tor turn the cash over to the state treas
urer. Moore claims that the first method
is the proper proceeding although the
latter has been the practice since the
beginning of the state. It would seem
to ny sane man that Moore, having
accepted the funds and Issued the license
aud certificates required by the laws of
the state, had by the acceptance of the
money and issuance o! the receipt of the
state of Nebraska bound himself to per
form the rest of his duty, and turn the
cash over to the treasurer. He was an
officer of the state and accepted the
money for the state. To keep it for bis
own use was stealing, and he deserves
to be convicted of the crime of which he
is guilty. ' '
A GREAT REMEDY.
For Sufferers from Files.
Dr. Redmond, a specialist in the study
and treatment of piles and rectal diseases
recently stated that the Pyramid Pile
Cure, the new discovery for the cure of
piles, was the most remarkable remedy
he had ever seen or tried in one respect;
aud that was, the instant relief exper
ienced in all cases, no matter how severe
from the moment the remedy was ap
plied; this was the more surprising to
him. because be had carefully analyzed
the preparation and no trace of opium,
cocaine or similar poison could be de
tected. ' Physicians look with great favor upon
the Pyramid Pile Cure, because it is
rapidly taking the place of surgical
operations aud because it is so simple.so
easily applied and contains no mineral
or other poisons so commonly used in
pile cures. .
Dr. Esterbrook reports the that the
Pyramid Tile Cure not only cures the
various forms of Piles, but never fails to
give immediate relief on the first appli-
discomfort may be.
V ' Vi who have suffered from piles for
years are often astonished at the instant
relief experienced from the first applica
tion. Another important advantage is
the fact that anv one can use the remedy
without detention irom ousiiiess or nt-

PRESIDENT'S POWER SUSTAINED.
Can Remove Federal Office Holders At
Hit Own Plesture.
The United States supreme court has
has handed down an opinion in the case
of L. E. Parsons, late district attorney
for the northern district of Alabama, ap
pealed from the court of claims. The
decision was adverse to Parson's claim
that he was entitled, under section 769
of the Revised Statutes, to hold his
office for four years, notwithstanding
the president's order of removal. Justice
Peckham said that while the appoint
ment was for four years it might be
terminated earlier at the discretion of
The determination of this case, has
been looked forward to with interest be
cause of its possible effect upon the re
moval ol office holders Incident to the
change of administration.
Parsons was removed in 1893, having
been appointed in 1890. He wrote to
the president, refusing to surrender the
place on the ground that as he had been
appointed for a term of four years the
president had no right to remove him
before the expiration of that time. He
has fought the case through the various
federal courts on this theory.
