was received here, stating that Sheriff
Ilyers had-a shooting scrape with the
Mastitis near Green wood". It gave no
particulars,- and tJ?e suspense was
great to know whether the Sheriff was
hurt or some one else killed.- About
nine o'clock some details were receiv
ed and it was ascertained that no one
was killed, on the late freight the
Sheriff and prisoners arrived! and we
got the details:
It would seem that Josv Mastin has
separated from his wife and as usual
in such cases there was trouble about
who should have care of the children.
Mrs. Mastin obtained the custody of
the child by legal process and Judge
Sullivan issued a writ of habeas cor
pus to the Sheriff commanding him to
take the child from the custody of the
Mastins. It was in enforcing this
writ that the difficulty occured.
The Sheriff went to the house and
asked Joseph Mastin to read the writ,
he refused and the Sheriff then read
the paper and demanded the child
when both the Mastins jumped on him
and pounded him over the head, with
wood and chairs. Finding he had no
other resort. Sheriff Ilyers at last drew
his pistol and shot Lauraine Mastin in
the thigh. Getting out of the room he
went to Greenwood and obtained a
posse when Mastin was arrested and
the child secured and brought to PlatU
mouth as stated above. Young Mas
ton, wounded, and the old lady remain
The Sheriff has filed two informa
tions against all three, one for resist
ing an officer, and one for assault with
intent to kill.
The injuries to the Sheriff are quite
sevjre and there was hardly any part
of his head that was not contused and
wounded. Xot one man in a thousand
would have had the patience and per-
sefvance he has displayed in endeav
ouring to arrest the men without
bloodshed. "We know nothing about
the justice of the original cause of
grievance but we are clear on one
point, the authority of the law must be
made paramount in Nebraska; we
cannot afford any more nonsense on
this head and the officers enforcing
have the right to protection, and to
shoot in self defense if resisted. The
Mastins can thank the unusual for
bearance of our Sheriff for life to-day.
The case has been put off for trial
until the 17th of February, as the
wounded man is not able to appear.

The Connty Seat Question
We publish herewith the opinion of
the Supreme Court upon the applica
tion of EugenoL. Reed and other gen
tlemen, relators, praying the Supreme
court oi tua itate to grant a peremp
tory Writ of Mandamus commanding
the Board of County Commission
ers ef Cass ' County to forthwith
can a second election for tho re
moval of the county seat of Cass Coun
ty. The application was based upon
the claim of the relators that about
150 fraudulent votes were cast (at the
polling place in the city of Platts
raouth), at the special election held
May 14th, 1878, for the removal of our
County Seat, against re-location; that
excluding these votes at least three
fifths of all the votes cast at this elec
tion for the removal and re-location of
thi county seat of Cass C unty were
cast for re-location, and that under the
County Seat Act (Act of 1875) it was
the duty of the County Commissioners
to call a Becond election.
An answer was filed by the Board of
County Commissioners denying the
averments of the petition of the relat
ors, and which raised the question of
the canvass of the vote, setting forth
that it was canvassed by the County
Clerk and two freeholders, and not by
the Commissioners of the County; and
averring that the Commissioners could
not, under the law, canvass the vote.
There seems to be a yery radical de
fect in this county seat act, in that it
no where provides for a canvass of the
Yotes cast at a special election called
under the act.
The answer of the Board of County
Commissioners further raised the
question as to the propriety of the
remedy sought by tho relators; and in
passing upon the questions so raised,
upon the pleadings and argumeut of
counsel. Ave give the opiuion of the
Court, as follows:
The act of February 25, 1875 makes
no provision for the canvassing of tho
votes cast for the re-location of a coun
ty seat. If such omission is not fatal
to the administration of said law then
it must be that the duty of canvassinz
such vote devolves upon the County
Clerk and two disinterested electors of
the county, to b9 chosen by the clerk
for that purpose, as provided by 17.
chap. 20, General Statutes, for canvass
ing the votes cast at general elections
for state and county officers, &c; and
no duty in respect thereto is devolved
upon the County Commissioners, ex
cept to act upon the result as the same
should be officially dtclared. It ap
pears, as well from the rlaintiffs' own
showing as Irom the answer of the de
fendants, that their action upon the
said result has been in accordance witli
their plain duty as prescribed by law.
They had no control over the canvass
or the result, aud the statute provides
that "If at either of the elections in
this act provided for more than two
fifths of the votes cast shall t e in favor
of the place where the county seat is
then located tins question of re-loc;-tion
thereof shall not be again submit
ted for the space of two years from the
date of said election."
When the statute speaks of votes it,
of course, means legal votes; but all
votes cast and leceived at an election
are presumed to bo legal until illegal
ity is proved in some manner provided
by law. Provision is made lor con
testing the election of persons who
may be declared elected to a seat in
the Senate or House of ltepiesenta
tives or to a state or countv oflice
Whether by following such provisions
as near as the same aro applicable to
an election of this kind the plaintiffs
could have so changed the result as to
have made it the duty of the Countv
Commissioners to call a second elrc
tion we do notfel called upon to de
cide in disposing of this motion. But
it seems very clear that while the rc
suit of the canvass remains undis
turbed tho defendants have no further
duty to perform growing out of said
special election on the petition upon
which it was called. This would not
be different even if the Board of Coun
ty Commissioners had canvassed the
vote, and it had been their duty to do
so, as it seems to have been thought by
the plaintiffs. The law nowhere gives
the canvassers the right to throw out
or rejeet votes for the reason that they
have been cast by persons not legal
voters, nor have they any means of as
certaining wno were illegal voters or
what ballots were cast by them. A
standard authority on matters of this
character says, "an important featuro
of the writ of mandamus, and one which
distinguishes it from many remt-dial
writs is, that it is used merely to com
pel action and coerce the performance
of a pre-existing dutv. "In no case
does it have the effect of creating any
new authority or of conferring powers
which did not previously exist; its
proper functiou being to set in motion
and compel action with reference to
previously-existing and clearly-defined
duties. "It is, therefore, in no sense
a creative remedy, and is only used to
compel persons to act when it is their
plain duty to act without its agency;"
and it follows necssariiy, that the writ
will not go to command the perform
ance of an act which would be unlaw
ful in the a sence of the writ." (High
on Ex-Ilemedies, 7, P. 10.) See also,
Illinois cases there cited.
Will it be seriously urged that with
the canvass of the said vote standing
on the records of Cass County uncon
tested and unreversed it is a plain or
even a doubtful duty resting on the
said Board of County Commissioners
to call said second election? Would
it not, on the other hand, be a clear
violation of duty and of law, and
would it not be doing exactly what the
law prohibits being done within two
years from the hrst election ?
The difficulty in this case seems to be
that no body has refused to discharge i
any official duty incumbent upon him
under any law, and nobody has violat
ed the law except these illegal voters,
if any such there be, and they cannot
be reached by mandamus.
It has been suggested that it be re
ferred to a referee, to take testimo
ny as to the alleged illegal votes, and
report the same to thie court. If that
could be done under some appropriate
legal proceeding, and a sufficient num
ber of illegal votes proved to chancre
the result, and that evidence and con
clusion brought to the attention of the
said Board of Commissioners, and they
should refuse to act thereon, then it is
possible that mandamus would lie
against them. But this court cannot
presume that they would refuse to act
in such case. "Mandamus is never
granted in anticipation of a supposed
omission of duty, however strong the
presumption may be that the persons
whom it i.s sought to coerce by the writ
will refuse to perform their duty when
the proper time arrives. It is, there
fore, incumbent upon the relator to
show an actual omission on the part of
the resjondent to perform the required
act; and, since there can be no omis
sion before the time has arrived for
the performance of the duty the writ
will not Uaue before that time." "In

other words, the relator must show
that the respondent is actually in de
fault in the performance of a legal du
ty thtn due at his hands, and no
threats or predetermination can take
the place of such default before the
