An iuiorlniit | ) proceeding wa = t hogim
! n Iliofliiprptno court to-day by Hon. V.
Vft Haiwom nntl Mr. Watson , of Ne
braska Ulty. It was tlio filing of an in-
Cormaliun against J. L. Mitchell , now
noting ns a district jutljjo of the Second
jndlolnl district by virtue of nppolntmRiit
by Oovornor H.IWM , who auU-tl under lliu
authority of an act of the legislature )
ptiswd anil upprorud March 10 , 198.1 } .
This act of HID logiiihitm'o it generally
conceded to bo in violation of flections 10
and 11 , article 0 , of Ihn constitution , fit-
titled Ihu Judicial Department , provid
ing that , the member of judicial ( lislriuU
and judges might bo increased in
1831 , and no oftunor than
onoo in four .yoar. Tim law
in regard to the fding of tnformiUon : in
the mipremn court in sitoli matters as
tliis , provides that the filing may be done
by the attornoy-goncral. Mu sivi. Uansom
mul Walsh requested tliu altoruey-gtju-
oral to lilo tliis information , but ho re
fused ; thunMipon thi-y , as citizens , did it
tliemsclviiS. Altornoy-Genenil LCCMI was
nasured by these goat lumen that the ma
jority of the citizens of Otoo county
wanted this question settled , but never
theless hu persisted in a positive refusal
to have anything to do witli it. .
It is generally conceded by all the law-
yew who know' anything about Ihu mat
ter that the law Is clearly uncon
stitutional. There is no more HSU
for two judgo.i in the second district
than tlioro is for a liftli wheel
to a wagon. It entailed an extra o.vpensn
of § 1GW ( for the judge , and $ lfit)0 ) for the
reporter , makinir a total t > f § 1,000. It is
Htippo't'il that Leesc'.s action is duo to
radroad nressurc the samu thai in-
lluoncod Governor Dawes In appointing
Mitchell , who is known to bo a railroad
attorney and as chairman of the committee -
too on railroads in the legislature somu
years ago rendered the railroad com
panies valuable service in defeating all
railroad legislation. It may bo possible
that the Hupromo court will endeavor to
dodge tlio I.N-HIO on Mime technicalities ,
bntifMilfhell is held in his phieo , the
tax-payer. ? of that county will enjoin the
payment of lufl salary , and then ( lie
courts will have to meet the issue .squaw-
I\SAtT. AbVI.USI M.YTUOJf.
It will bo remembered that about , two
month. " ago Governor Dawes appointed
Mrs. M'llthew.son , wife of the nupuriii-
tnudent of Pie insane asylum , matron of
the same institution. This action on the
part of the governor was not concurred
in by the board of pnbiclands ] and build
ings , to whom , in conjunction with the
governor , the matter was submitted. An
object , on was made to Mrs. Malthewson's
appointment , ami the governor was
asked to withhold it , but for some
reason hn refused to do so. The affair
rested in that way until last month ,
when the board , which is composed of
the governor , Secretary of State Hoggon ,
SUite Treasurer Millard , Land Comrnis-
fiioner Scott and Attorney General Leeso ,
met to audit and allow the accounts of
the asylum , The voucher for Mrs. Mat-
thowFon'H salary was not allowed. The
last meet hit : of the board was held on
Monday ot this week , when the
Kimio uourso as last , month with
regard to Mrs. Malhowson's pay
was followed by the majority of the
board. The principal cause ot disagree
ment has licon a conflict as to tiio propnr
jiower to appoint. The governor claims
that it is his right , while the balance of
the board say that it jays with them.
Yesterday after some discussion it was
decided 'to submit the question to the
Hupromo court for an opinion , and ac
cordingly the ease was filed.
Seorct.M'y Hoggon is firm in the belief
that the board has the appointing power ,
end this iwlmnenl is backed by an
opinion which ho obtained from Hon. O.
P. Mason , which reads as follows :
To K. I' . Hoggen. SeeroUry of State ,
and Members of the lUmrd of Public
Lands ami IJuihtings. Gentlemen. In
reply to the question , "lly whom inuM ;
the matron of tlio Nebraska insane hospi
tal bo appointed , " I have this to say :
Section U of chapter 40 of the compiled
Statutes of Nebraska , entitled "Insane ,
jingo lliH ) , " reads as follows : "Tho board
of trustees shall appoint , upon the nomi
nation of the superintendent , u steward
and a matron , who , together with the
superintendent and assistant physician ,
shall be styled the resident ollicers ot the
hospital , and reside in the same , " etc.
It this state is constitutional , the an
swer to the question seems to bo plain ,
that it is tlio duty of the superintendent
to nominate , and of the board to appoint.
The provisions of thu constitution re
specting the appointing power are as fol
' 'I'ho governor shall nominate and , by
"and with the coiihent of the .senate ( ex-
"pressed by a major ty of all senators
"elected , voting by yeas and imyr , ; , ap-
"point all ollicers , whoso olllcos j.ro established -
' tablished by this constitution , or which
"may bo created by law , ( and wluHo ap
pointment or election is not. otherwise
"by law , or herein provided for , etc. ,
"etc. " )
See si'o , 10 , art , 17 , constitution , page
21 , com ] ) , htalutes. The appointment of
a matron is ' 'otherwiseprovided bylaw. "
That the power to appoint : v matron coos
tlpos not lie In the governor is further In
dicated by the particular specification of
what ollleers o ( the insane hospital ho
may appoint. Section 10 , page iiOO ,
comp. statutes , provides that "tho gover
nor of the slate Muill appoint a Mipurin-
tondont , and may appoint an assistant
physician , e'e. , etc. The amendment
to this section taking effect June 1. IBtiU ,
does not eliangu Its character in this re-
spcot. There being a specilio designation
of the olllcera which the governor may
appoint , ho Would be without power to
appoint , any others , This principle of Jaw
' * ' lias become a maxim' 'i. o. "The express
mention of one thing implies the exclu
sion of another. " HoHpootmg thu Intima
tion thai the statute herein referred to ,
bavlugbeen unacted before the adoption
of the present constitution , it would bu
without ulfect until re-enacted , allow mete
to say that this objection is not tollable
for the reason that the constitution of this
htatu proudi'H "That no inconvenience
may arise from the revisions and changes
imitle In ( ho constitution of this state ,
and to carry the samu into effect it is

Hey of the Tenth district , which includes
litiffaln county , where /Immerman's re-
lea o was made , was in the cltv on bus
iness connncteil with the ease. Ho wouhl
not. at the time , deviil e his business ,
but It transpired yesterday that it was
for thti purpose of causing Uurr's nrro'-l
and iittdiultincn at Kearney to answer to
the charge of aiding a criminal to esonpo.
The M arrant musthavo boon scuved on
Hurr yesterday , for ho went , to .several
parties for bail. Thn Capital National
bank has n correspondent at Kearney ,
and it h understood that. Hurr went to
the cashier and requested * thnt lhet llicer.s
of the bank of Kenrnoj'bo communicated
with so that upon Ida arrival there ho
could furnish bonds for appearance at
the. dNtrlet court without di-liiy , Hurr
finds him elf In a dclcmnia which ho
hardly expected to got into , and it is
.said ho is greatly disgusted and worried
over ( lie prospect ahead of him.
A. G. Hastings , thodopulyUnitcd States
miuslml wht ) served the writ of habeas
wirpiu on the .sheriff of Buffalo county
was seen. He appears to take the mat
ter philosophically ami from \\hat hn
faid lie must expect also to be indicted.
The interest in the outrageous affair
remains unabated in Lincoln and there
are but few gentlemen at the state capitol -
tel who have a word to say in defense of
the lawyer's action. Ho lias always been
regarded as a sharp praotioncr , but Ids
most intimate frionus never thought him
capable of an.v such a brazen action as
tlint now put down against him.
Mi\llurr was not seen on the streets
yesterday afternoon and it was currently
reported that he left on the Hurlingtou &
Missouri train for Kearney in charge of
an olllcer , where ho will bear company
with Saviilo , who is already under arrest.
Later Investigations by the ltii : : reporter
led to the information that Hurr really
had been taken by the sheriff , and he is
now on his way to Kearney to meet the
consequences of his act.
Wild rumors that he would be lynched
lloateil around the streets of Lincoln
after it had been whispered what had
been done with Hurr , but there is no dan
ger of an.v fiich lawless course being
taken by the residents of Buffalo county.
Wore it'to Mindcn , where Zimmerman
was tried , that thn oflicorwastaking Hurr
some little apprehension might be lelt for
corvrr KIXUSTUK OK DUKIIS.
As is well known in legal and political
circles the last legislature passed an act
creating the office of county register of
deeds , thus dividing up the work ot
present county clerks. Some techni
cality arose by the passage of another
act which throw a doubt on the validity
of the law. Some time ago interested
parties and candidates for the newly
created ollioo brought the matter before
the supreme court to test the act of the
legislature. AH yet no decision lias been
rendered. In nearly all of the counties
candidates for tlio ollico were nominated
by both the republicans and democrats.
In Nance comity thu nominating conven
tion refused ( o put up a candidate , and
yesterday Senator Moiklejohn , of Nanco
county , came to Lincoln to institute pro
ceedings auxiliary to those already com
menced to find whether the ollice is
valid under the law. It is umlortito d
that the inattcir will come up before the
A. MISS1NO IUJSP.ANn.
j\ letter was received by tliu mayor yes-
ierday from J. H. Carter , mayor of Shon-
amloah , Iowa , asking information of the
whereabouts of one Charles Ilardin , a
readout of that place , who left home
some time ago , and has since left no trace
of his abiding place. His wife , who re
sides in Shenandoah , saw an item in the
HII : : some time ago of an unknown man
being killed by the ears near Lincoln ,
and th'j present communication was to
learn definitely whether ho was the lost
Ilardin. The police , from a description
of 'the two men , fmtl that they differ
widely. Mrs. Ilardin will have to look
farther for her husband.
The Knights of I'hythias are discussing
the question of tendering the members
of the grand ledge a grand ball in con-
iu.ietion with the banquet , at their moot
ing to bo held in this city , in a few days.
Several of the members of the executive
committee are opposed to givjng a ball.
The Lincoln exposition , which is aux-
illiary to the slate fair , held a meeting last
night , with.I. D. McL'arlandin the chair ,
the principal business done was a reso
lution passed increasing the stock of the
company four (400) ( ) shares , and a com
mittee was appointed to negotiate and
Col , Crabb and wife met with a
very sad accident yesterday while riding
homo last night , wlmn in tlio .south part
of the city. The buggy wheel went into
a hole in the road , tipping out the occu
pants , the horses being spirited and ran
violently , and the colonel and lady wore
badly mangled though it is thought not
dangerously. The horses then ran
agamst a telephone polo and one of them
was instantly killed , The buggy was
literally torn to pieces.
Col , Wilson and L , C. Hurr are con
templating building a live story brick
building on the corner of Twelfth and N
streets. This when .built will bo the
only live story building in the city. Tlio
ground which it is to oceuiiv is 7ii feet by
ll'J feet , and it is said will be the iinest
structure in thc o parts.
llou. H , C , Dawson , of .Jefferson coun
ty , Nebraska , and formerly warden * } } the
state penitentiary , was nominated last
evening by acclamation for candidate for
county clerk by the republican conven
tion o't that county. Mr. Dawson has al
ways been a strong republican , mid Jef
ferson was his lir.st homo in Nebraska.

To the Editor : .Tustnt this tjm6 when a-
great deal is being saitl pro imd'con as to
the action of the city council in securing
Mr. Myers as architect and superinten
dent of the proposed city hall , ami in
view of the position taken by local
architects , ami the apparent hue and cry
that has boou raised by them for the en
couragement of "home talent" in this
direction , it may not bo ami s for the
writer to give to the pubjie his observa
tions gained in a practical way as to
the encouragement given to local talent ,
enterprise and industry by the architects
of this , city , a class ot men with but. few
exceptions whoso ndvont into Omaha is
of but , recent date , and whoso methods of
awarding contracts anil deceiving
patrons are of the most unscrupulous
kind. I speak now from a knowledge
obtained by experience. It is not o
much the purpose of this article to defend
the action of the members of thooommon
council \ \ ho voted to award Mr. Myers
the contract for making plans
for the proposed city hall , ( a
very wise and judicious selection , )
as it is to show a confiding public the
absurdity off the pretensions made by thn
pretended "home talent. " The policy of
this homo talent "outfit1 is that of the
dog in the manger. They wanted the
people to give them a helping hand and
some encouragement when they cnmo
hero , Now that they are in a measure
established in tills city , they are unwil
ling that thu like assistance should bo
given anyone else. The plea for the en
couragement of homo talent , emanating
from the source itiloes , is all bosh. Their
profession is insincere , ami calculated to
deceive , How much money , let me ask
the building public , has boon sent out of
this city to Chicago and other cities lor
iron work ncocssary in thn construction
of buildings since the advent of those
"homo talent" architects , ami how much
for iinsafo and "gingerbread" torra-ootta
trimmings ? Is it not a fuck that the
owners of every large building erected
within two years have hail to send to other
cit es for their iron work , solely because
"home talent" architects , of foreign im
portation , luivn seen lit to throw cold
water on honest homo industry ami en
terprise. Not alone this , but they seek
to besmirch tlio reputation of honorable
ami representative business men by
howling fraud , corruption and riiiglsm ,
It comes with ill grace for
"homo talent" that is comparatively
unknown in this city to try and injure
men that have boon lifti-long residents of
this place , men that havu grown up with
Omaha ami been honored by its citizens
with positions of trust , men who by hon
esty anil Integrity have endeared them
selves to all classes , and who have never
been found wanting in their support of
the worklngmen at homo , notably thu
chairman of the council committee on
publio property ami imnrovemcnts. The
cry that has been raised by tho'io archi
tects that a ring has been formed to shut
out competition by "home talent" on thu
city hall remimS one very much of the
old adage adopted by tlio tlilcL who , to
distract attention from himself , the real
culprit , started the cry of "Slop thief ! "
Talk about rings , I will relate a couple
of incidents that happened to me in an
architect's ollieo in this nity a short time
ago , then hit thu public determine where
rings exist , anil the Interest they take in
liomt ) talent and industry. I have been
working for a number of years in Omaha
as u journeyman at my trade. At the
beginning of this Benson 1 concluded to
Tsontract work in my line ( bricklay
ing ) and accordingly visited the
ollices of the various architects
and math ) known my Intentions ,
In one I bhl on two large jobs
and had the gootl fortune to be llio low
est bidder. I thought and hoped that thu
contracts would be awarded to mo , but
nhus for all my hopes. When the archi
tect discovered ( hat I , a new mini in his
ollico , ( though an old resident of the city )
was the lowest bidder , hu immediately
went to work to prejudice ( ha owner
against mo , and used M an argument
that I was associated with thu working
masses three years ugo. ami that if the
owner gave me thn job I would get him
into trouble. This is encouraging homo
I itcnl with u ( Venjjcancc. On another
orvasion a lirm'in'lhis city advertised for
bids for IIm orlH'rtim of u large slono
building , t went to the architect's ollico
to bid on the work , \vhon I wan told Hint
it would bo noii afor mo t estimate , n
the fiwnor hndHie man picked out to do
tlwwork bofcra hand ) other * were told
the .4.11110 tiling in order to keep them
from c slinaling. I have heard architects
say that I hey would never nllow certain
contractors to lijriirn on work in th ir
ollice. How Is thh.for rings and combina
tions ? Architect ; * of this city receive n
pnrocnfMjc" oiijthii oostof thn building to
nn nrcctoj as cVmibeii.'ation for their ser
vices In drawing rim plan , nntl often nn
additional jiorivqut to .superintend thu
practical construction of the
building , of which they know but
very little. This being tlio cast ) gen
erally is knot apparent to nil thinking
peopm that they are actuated more for
Mjllish reasons In having largo estimates
madn of the cost of construction than
they are in economy for their patrons ?
Of cour.st ) there are some architects in
this city to whom this does not apply. I
can cheerfully testify that the exceptions
have nix oyc Mnglo to the interest of their
customers , and that In their olllcos as a
rule work is awarded to the lowest re
sponsible bidder irrespcctivo of person ,
but as 1 said before tld.s is not generally
the case. Architects as a riilo are moru
the enemies of building labor than they
are its friends , for whenever this class of
labor seek an Increase of wages or a re
duction of the hours of labor they nro
met by a di'lormlned opposition from
them , a howl Is set up that it will stop or
retard thn building boom , andalfcct ttuiir
Interests by a reduction of receipts. This
Is ihn argument if selfishness and fcnr ,
but it works ng.imst the workingmen to
some extent. Most everyone knows that
no matter how much surplus money a
man may have or how much land ho may
own no buildings will bo constructed by
him until there is a demand for them , or
unless ho can derive a fair per cunt from
the investment. Men do not build hou&es
just to ndmlro their beauty and elegance
of construction. They build for
profit. or gain. 1 have animad
verted to this matter lo show
that their desire for home talent Is un
real , nml when used in connection with
Hie city hall , is done to retard and delay
work on that structure. The report that
If Myers got thu contract for making the
plans , convict ami alien labor would bo
used in its construction , was circulated
that a .sentiment .of sympathy might bu
created for the obstructionists. The pub
lic need have no fears that smh will bo
tlio case. The working people have a
staunch friend iu the chairman of the
council committed on publio properly
ami iniprovcments. Ho lias always been
identified with thu working masses. Ho
was a member of the first organized la
bor society in Omaha , and always iu
sympathy with Ihcm. When an attempt
\\s\a \ made in the council a short lime ago
to reduce llio wages of the city laboring
men , his voice was raised in opposition
aiidliisvote.ca.stagaiiist.it. The public
interest is in safe hands when left to C.
S. Goodrich. Meanwhile , the building
public better * warch their own interest
by taking theiv , plans after completion
from tin.1 architect and personally receive
ami open the bids and give the work to
the lowest bitUlcr. Iu this way homo tal
ent wouhl bo encouraged. Omaha iron
foundries and Nebraska terra cotta works
would .reeeivu a.stimulus that would
place them iu the front ranks. The
money that is how being sent to Chicago
and other cities would bo placed in cir
culation right hero at home , business
would bo prosperous , and all would bo
contented. Kespc'ctfully , Hi ) W.VLSH.
