It Is unfortunate that the defender
should have been the beneficiary of an
accident, as there is little glory in
beating a cripple, but the rule1 is Iron
clad If crippled before the start time
is allowed for repairs, but once over
the line, if anything carries away, the
sufferer must make such repairs as he
can, or if rendered hors de combat, as
Shamrock was today, he must lake the
consequences. There are good sense
and logic behind the rule. The races
are a test of construction as well as
design and seamanship. Doubtless, if
Mr. Iselin could have had his choice
in the, matter, he generously would
have declined to continue In view of
the crippled condition of his rival, but
the rules gave him no alternative, lie
was In duty bound to go on, and as he
finished well within the time limit the
race was his.

when the ceremonies opened, there was
scarcely standing room.
It was a representative audience of
prominent Omaha people with a dis
tinguished aggregation of visiting
clergy. The ceremonies were impres

A striking feature of the opening
ceremonies was a procession of the
clergy and others, which formed in
Oardlner Memorial parish house, and
marched up the center aisle of the
cathedral, acting under ttie direction
of the master of ceremonies. In addi
tion to the clergy were members of the
choir, cross hearers, lay officers of the
dioceses of Nebraska and others. This
procession was an inspiring sight.

LINCOLN. Neb., Oct. 19.—The su

Injunction restraining the board ot
transportation from proceeding with
the hearing of the complaint of John
O. Yelser against the Nebraska Tele
phone company. The application was
made for the injunction by W. W.
Morsman, attorney for the telephone*
In the petition filed by Attorney
Morsmau he seta out the history of the
case. The complaint against the tel
ephone rates was filed by Yelser with
the board of secretaries of the board
of transportation. The board proceed
ed under the act of 1897. which gave
it authority to fix and regulate rates
of telepragli and telephone companies
as well as of expr»ss companies. The
telephone company went into the
courts with Its contention in opposi
tion to this position of the board, and
also set up the unconstltutionulity ot
the act creating the board. This cuse
went through the district court, if
having ben brought up by the com
pany. This decision of the supreme
court was against the telephone com
Boon after the supreme court deci
sion the board of secretaries, under
direction of the board of transporta
tion, informed Yelser that it was ready
to take up the hearing of his case.
This date for continuing the hearing,
which had been interrupted by the
court proceedings, was set for October
19. When the telephone company
went into court at first it asked for
an injunction to restrain the board
from attempting to Interfere with its
rates and management.
N«'hr:iMki» Stockmen Ituying Slieep.
SOUTH OMAHA, Oct. 19.—'The Den
ver Stockman has this to say of sheep
feeding conditions in Nebraska: "Tho
big Nebraska feeders are getting down
to business. They have concluded that
prices on southern lambs are not too
high when the cheap corn is consid
ered. They are going after the lambs
now and buying them by train loads.
Another conclusion lias been reached,
and which Is In tho main responsible
for the heavy buying going on now,
not only in the south, hut in tho west
as well. The beef supply available next
spring does not tlgure out as going
to be as great as the demand, conse
quently there is a great likelihood that
beef will lie high. To counteract tills
high market and to supply such con
sumers as will not find themselves
able to buy the high-priced beef all
the time there Is a strong possibility
that much mutton will be consumed,
and these sheep buyers are getting
ready for such demand.
“The latest, purchase of forty car
loads of New Mexico lambs and yearl
ing wethers by a big Nebraska feeder
at a cost of $2.30 per head at point of
loading is a price that cannot help but
render a handsome profit when mar
keting time comes.”
