Miller Bests
S. Mogenson
The wrestling match at the new
opera house last Thursday evening
was one of the most interesting of
an;: held here this season. A much
larger number of ladies was present
than at previous mat games, and a
good percentage of lovers of that
athletic sport were also present to
witness the game.
The wrestling came off after the
picture show, the first being a pre
liminary between Clarance Miller
and Earl Hancock, a very spirited
contest in which Miller’s superior
knowledge of the game gave him the
best over Hancock only after fifteen
minutes and was exciting as you
could wish.
Following the above came another
preliminary between Arthur Han
cock and Lester Hiddleson. The boys
not having any experience to speak
of went at it hammer and tongs from
tire first clinch, and gave a ten-minute
contest that was worth the whole
price of the show and ended in a draw.
After this came the big card, be
tween Warren Miller, our local cham
pion, and S. Mogensen of Bancroft.
As the men came togetlitr at the
call of referee. Miller at once took tl e
offensive, throwing Mogensen to the
mat, and from that time on till the
end of 5tj minutes, when Miller pinned
Mogensen's shoulders to the mat
with the liammerlock and crotch
hold. Mogensen pat in all his skill
and strength on the defensive, being
unable to get up and try conclusions,
but in the endless times lie wriggled
out of close combinations, he received
countless applause from those present,
iinu at uie ciose oi tne lau was uie
recipient of warm applause for his
skillful and plucky fight. After ten
minutes' recess, the big fellows again j
came on the mat, when Miller again
took the aggressive and Mogensen
dropped to the mat, but Miller went
at it again with a suprising spurt of
strength and speed and at the end of
live minutes he had whirled his ad
versary overhead and down to the
mat, pinning his shoulders with the
scissors hold, and was declared winner.
The contest was carried on with the
utmost good nature, the heavyweights
clasping hands and congratulating
each other over their work. Mogensen
acknowledged that after the first few
minutes he knew he had not the least
chance of throwing Miller, and his
only aim was to keep from being
pinned to the mat and the wrestle
result in a draw. Miller on the other
hand said he had not met an adversary
who so persistently refused to be
thrown, and thought him a wonder
on the defense. Mogensen is 2^ years
of age, weighed 172 pounds and this
was his sixth wrestle. He worked in
the creamery here some two years
ago, and was known to many present.
He is a pleasant, civil and gentleman
ly young man and made friends of all
he met here at the contest. He told
the reporter he hoped to visit us again
and in better shape the next time.
Miller showed much greater speed,
strength, endurance and knowledge
of the points of the game than ex
hibited in previous matches, and we
believe if he keeps on will soon be
one of the big guns at the game.

Dr Vallier, Osteopath, Grand Island
Contest Case
At the hearing of the county at
torneyship contest case before the
county court last Thursday, and the
arguments of the learned counsel,
Prince of Grand Island for the defense
and Nightingale & Son for the prose
j cution, being heard Judge Smith,
■ struck out all of the complaint per
taining to the corrupt practices act,
[as not under the jurisdiction of his
i court, as he understood it, and fixed
today (Thursday) for hearing on that
portion not stricken out. On Monday
of this week, the attorneys for the
prosecution filed with his honor their
objections to his ruling out t^e cer
tain portions, claiming he erred in so
doing, and asking for an immediate
hearing on this latter, but as the de
fense was in attendance on the federal
court at Grand Island, the judge could
not fix for the immediate hearing,
the time to be set later when the de
fense could be present. As we under
stand the decision of the county court,
there was a law passed in 1879, relat
ing to contests, and were to be heard
before tne county court first. In
1899 came the corrupt practices act,
on which said county courts have no
jurisdiction, but must be taken direct
to the district court. These are
claimed to be two separate and dis
tinct laws, hence in the opinion of
the county court it had no jurisdic
tion over questions Cominar up under
the corrupt practices act and threw
them out. This last act of the prose
cution is complaint of error on the
part of the court In so doing, and
that all three former complaints
come properly before the lower court.
And so the matter rests at the present

at the time and Flynn, a farmer living

The Northwestern will not at this
time state any of the circumstances
which occured at the time, not wish
ing to say anything which might prove
prejudicial in advance of the hearing
and trial of the case. The local law
