ALL OVER THE STATE
MiMf Maintain flrtt;
LINCOLN, Sept. 2.'.. The supreme
court has declared void the section of
the statute providing for the control
and maintenance by county boards of
bridges constructed by irrigation com
panies or owners of Irrigation systems.
This decision is in tha case of Htntc.
ex rcl. Dawson county, vs. Farmers'
and Merchants' Irrigation company,
the power of the legislature to enact
laws securing for certain persons Im
munity from burdens which, under
similar conditions, rest upon all other
persons, bln? denied.
One J-cctlcn of the statutes of 1&37
provides that any corporation, canal
company, mill owner or any other per
son, shall make and keep in good re
pair sufflclent crossings over public or
private highways. Section 58 of the
session laws of 1S93 provides that any
owner of any system of irrigation shall
construct suitable bridges across its
ditches on public roads and that the
county boards shall thereafter control
and maintain them.
Prior to 1335 all owners of ditches
crossing public highways were charged
with the duty of keeping public bridges
across the dltrhca in repair. The leg
islature of 1395, the court holds, as
sumed to exempt irrigation companies
from this burden, while leaving all
other ditch owners still subject to it.
The opinion is by Judge Sullivan and
closes with the folio wins;:
"Section f,8 of the Irrigation, law oT
1895, being an attempt to confer a
special privilege on a particular class,
comes under the ban of the constitu
tion and Ih therefore null. The section
Is not so connected with the balance
of the' act as to be incnpable of sepa
ration from it. Neither can it be H.ild
that It constituted an Inducement to
the adoption of the measure. The bal
ance of the taw Is, therefore, unaffected
by this decision."

LINCOLN, Neo., Sept. 25. A deci
sion of interest to people connected
with building nnd loan associations
Is found in the caec of the Interntate
Savings and Loan associations, appel
lee, against Hattle B. Strln. The
contention of the association in this
case was that the usury law was not
applicable to either foreign or domes
tic corporations of the class to which
it belongs. That building and loan ns
hociations. incorporated under the
laws of Nebraska, are not aflected ty
the statute against usury has been set
tled beyond controversy, the court
holds, but In other cases It has been
ruled that foreign corporations are not
within the provision of section 9 of
the act of ls91, that being the clause
under which the exemption was
claimed. The syliaous in this case is
that: "Foreign building and loan as
sociations doing business In this state
are, on their usurious contracts, sub
ject to the peaaltks of the statute
tnrendlary tire at llartmrd.
HARVARD, Neb.. Sept. 25. Fire
was discovered In the bam on the
premise occupied oy C. C. Kenyon In
the northeast portion of the city. The
structure was all ablaze inside when
discovered and before the fire depart
ment could reach the scene with the
apparatus it was beyond having and
all the boy3 could do was to prevent
the spread of the fire. Every Indica
tion points to incendiary origin. Mr.
Kenyon was In the bam at 8 o'clock
and everything was all right when he
locked the door for the night. The
structure waa worth probably $125
with no insurance. Mr. Kenyon had
three trunks filled with clothing and
