The following enit, ia which Charles

isterest to aaaay: MA deeision of sUte
wide iaterest and of apeoial impnrtaaoe
ta wage earners and merchants was ren
dered by Judge-Kennedy of the district
ooart Thursday. The suit involved the
new garnishment law enacted by the
lest legislature, which eabjecta 10 per
cent of wagea dne to garnishment.
Jadga Kennedy held that this lo per
cent amy be iaoluded ia the $500 exemp
tion allowed the bead of a family by
atatate aad it may aot be garnished un
lets the total personal property, indud
iag the 10 per cent of the wages, amounts
to tf00. This will make the lawinopera
tiveiatao collection of debts against a
large number of wage-earners who have
no lands or lota aad whose persoaalty
ia worth leaa thaa the exempted amount.
Thedeemioa was rendered ia the case of
Oorwis F. Jones, a Union Pacific engi
neer, against the Union Pacific, William
O'Brien aad Gharlea F. Baaohman.
Jones, through hk attorney, T. W. Black
burn, went into the Douglas eoaaty
ooart to enjoin the company from pay
ing $L6S which had been gareiebeed in
O'Brien's ooart at Columbus to pay a
debt dae Baschman. Joaeaaet up the
plea be was the bead of a family and
had ao lands or lots, aad only taOO worth
of pereoaal property, including the
wagea dae bias. He claimed exemption
under the statute. The case waa tried
Thursday and Judge Kennedy granted
the desired injunction. The same ques
tion has been raised several times before,
bat this is the first adjudication of it.
Theenbetaaceof Judge Kennedy's de
ehaon is contained in this paragraph:
Aad the coart finds that the total per
sonal property owned by said plaintiff
at the time of the iaaaance of said sam
monn ia garnishment, and on the date
of the aBewerof the garnishee was 9J00
iadading wagea doe from said Uaioa
Pacific Railroad company, aad that ssid

8tate of Nebraska, the bead of a family
and bsd neither lands, town tots nor
hoaaas. subject to exemption aa a home

iseatitled under the exemption laws of
thia state to ffOOia personal property,
which may include wagea earned, and
ia addition there to ninety per centam
ot say wages owing to him by any per
son or oorporation; that the plaintiff
filed the afiadavit reqnirsd, cUimisg hie
said axamatiOBs; that the defendant
Union Paeifio Bailroad company with
held and withholds the sum of $5106
from the plaintiff and threatens to pay
same to said defendant, William O'Brien,
justice of the peace, sad refaeed to ap

no remedy at law and cannot protect
himself against the injury threatened.
