Lincoln dispatch to the Omaha Bee:
Attornej-s acting for the respondent in
the case of the state against Mayor
Frank E. Moores this morning filed a
motion for rehearing before the su
preme court. The petition sets forth
five paints npoa which" ground for
a rehearing Is based, and is attended
by a brief showing the virtne of each
The first argument advanced is that
the judgment rendered, in respect to
a question of constitutional interpre
tation, is contrary to the opinions of
two justices and two commissioners
and overrules the unanimous decision
of the court upon the same question,
without a hearing thereon. The brief
explains that by a unanimous decision
of the court, filed December 9. loi7.
the term "collector and custodian" was
interpreted to mean what it says with
the ordinary significance to the word
"and." In tie concurring opinion in
the present case it is admitted that
respondent is not a "custodian." with
in the meaning of the constitution,
but it reads the phrase as thoueh i
were written, "collector or custodian."
The claim is advanced that respondent
was not both a "collector and custo
dian" of public money.
It is developed in the second point
that the quo warranto proceedings to
oust respondent assume his default as
"collator and custodian." which fact
should have been adjudicated before
the proceedings could toe entertained.
If the respondent was ineligible to be
elected mayor on April 20. 1S97. it was
because his disqualification was, in
contemplation of law, in fr" force
without any previous trial or judg
ment of 'court. It is held therefore
that the court cannot inflict a retroact
ing: penalty for the purpose of jnstl
iying a wri? of ouster in this proceed
inc. Points three and four recite that the
judgment is baed upon an alleged
offense which is penal in its nature
and therefore the decision violates the
right of respondent, guaranteed by
thp constitution, to a trial by jury of
the otfens" with which he stands
charged. The reference of the case
is said to be wholly unauthorized and
in violation of the Cede of Civil Pro
cedure. The vital question is urged
that Mayor Moores has a right to a
hearing in court before he shall be
ousted in such a proceeding. To "oust
Frank E. Moores from the office of
mayor, the brief adds, "in a quo war
ranto proceedings which presupposes
his guilt is like taking a man to the
penitentiary and trying and convict
ing him after he is inside the prison
walls." Authorities from other states
are adduced to show that such a pro
ceeding is unprecedented.
The final appeal for a rehearins is
based uxxm general facts in the case.
Resoectful protest is made against the
language adopted by the court, in
which the arguments in behalf of the
respondent are sneered at and charac
terized as pathetic appeals. It is urged
That the case is too serious in its ef
fect upon the respondent and upon the
citizens of Omaha to justifv anything
but the gravest consideration at the
hands of the court. If the opposing
counsel had made such comments upon
the ev'dence." the brief adds, "we
should insist upon it to the court that
counsel were begging the question and
were jriving the mere items of evidence

mate facts the value of the ultimate

"When it comes down to a question
of showing fruit in endless varietiea
of excellent quality says the
Omaha Bee, Nebraska seems to
have been successful so far as the
opinion of the judges go. Yesterday
morning- Superintendent Youngers re
ceived notice from the Department of
Exhibits of the Exposition that the
state had walked off with seven gold
medalF. seven silver medals, five
bronze medals and honorable mention
in two instances. In addition to all
these medals, there Is another thing
which pleases Superintendent Youn
pts much more, and that is that the
committee on awards has given the
state a special diploma, the only one
issued the Horticultural section. This
is a spcial diploma for the largest and
best kept exhibit in the building. Not
-satisfied with doing tbls. the judges
went still farther and Ordered a gold
medal on the entire collection simply
on account of its magnitude and con
dition. Then the. state Horticultural
society that made its showing in
September, is given a gold medal oa

the judges have designated as the best
collection of fruit made by any oae
group of counties.

What tbe Porto Bicans want is to be
taken in as a part of the United States.
They do not expect to enter ths Union
as a state, but as a people in training,
to be advanced to statehood. In ad
dition to this they want free trade
with the United States, and there is
no reason that I can see why they
should not have it At present they
are forced to pay duty on all imported
goods. Spanish goods included, which
were free before.
"Our military government of the
island has been far from satisfactory.
We destroyed the Spanish military
rule and have not replaced it With
American forces, thus destroying their
safeguards to life and property. As a
result of this from 150 to 200 of the
finest plantations hate been destroyed
by fire. Just who is responsible for
this I cannot say.
"The infantry there is of very little
use in policing the island. We must
have cavalry. In addition there should
be a civil guard, composed of Porto
Bican privates and American oCcers.
"There is a great deal of sickness
among our troops, but it is due princi
pally to the imprudence of the men
and not to any neglect of the officers
of heads of departments."
General Stone will advise the estab

Kitchener's triumphal progress to the
Guild hall, to receive the freedom of
London and the sword of honor, pre
.sentad.hiaaja jecoay tioaof hiajla
feat of the dervishes of Omdurman.
The eeneral was cheered loudly as he
drove through the streets. BTe was
accompanied by three aids-de-camp.
When he reached the Guild hall Gen
eral Kitchener took his place oa the
dais by the side of the lord mayor,
Horatio David Davies. The clerk then
read a document setting forth that
citizens, one described as a butcher,
one as a barber and one as a stationer,
had declared the general to be a fit
and proper person.
In presenting the sword of honor,
the lord mayor read an address, in
which he said this honor was only re
served for England's greatest son.
General Kitchener, replying, ex
pressed his deep and heartfelt thanks,
lie said the success of the Egyptian
campaign was due. cot only to the
oneness of purpose and cheerful spirit
of determination, but also to the mas
ter mind of Lord Cromer, the British
agent in Egypt, under whose able
direction, the sirdar asserted, the Sou
dan had been reconquered.

Brother Fear the Bayer of their lar
aaraaee Pol'ciea Will Harder
Lurcoxjr. Neb.. Nov. 5. A
able petition has been filed in the dis
trict court by Charles F.. David W.
and George K. Brown, who seek to
have Receiver Hill of the defunct Lin
coln Savings bank restrained from
selling to the highest bidder insurance
policies aggregating f 15,000 on their
lives, pledged to secure a loan. The
claim is advanced that by thus dispos
ing of the policies the lives of the
plaintiffs are placed in jeopardy.
The Brown brothers used their life
insurance as collateral for a loan. The
policies may be paid only at the death
of the assured, hence the claim is
made that by transferring them a
great inducement is offered the holder
to make way with the parties insured.
The case is to be heard this month.
