Wednesday the jury in the case of
Trester versus the Missouri Pacific rail
way company returned a verdict for the
plaintiff for & ) , : ! 00. The amount sued for
was $10,000 , and the case was broutrht
over disaffection at the awards made in
condemnation of right of way property.
The supreme court has handed down a
number of important decisions , among
them being the decision on the bond
ca o in n precinct In Howard countv. This
precinct issued $13,000 in bonds to a
branch of the Union Pacific , and the
auditor , under ndvico of the attorney
general , refused to register them on the
ground of illegality in issue. The ille
gality was claimed ki the call for the
election at which the honds wore voted ,
only twenty-seven freeholders signing
the. call for the election when the law
requires lifty such signers. The railroad
took the case to the supreme court on
mandamus proceedings to compel the
registration of the bonds , but the court
has decided against the company. Fol
lowing are the decisions handed down :

If K 2. The fact that before the levy of the

Snowden vs. Tyler. Appeal from Oton coun
ty. Reversed .is to defendant Lyle Opin
ion by Maxwell , Charles J.
1. The remedy for the recovery of real
estate by one claiming the legal title
thereto , against one. in possession claim
ing an estate therein , is an action of
ejectment in which the faets may bo sub
mitted to a jury ; nnd an action to quiet
title , if properly objected to , will not lie.
2. Whuru a party out of possession of
real cstato brings an action to quiet title ,
and the defendant answers alleging a
cloud upon his title caused by the plain
tiff's ducd und prajing for a decree can
celling the same , tlio court will huvo
jurisdiction to determine. Iho title of the
respective parties. A dufuct wliich ap
pears on the fncu of the petition should
bo taken advantage of by demurrer.
3. A quit claim deed of real cstato ,
while affording cause for suspicion , may ,
where it appears in a chain of title oil the
proper records of the county , be sufficient
to justify a bona lido purchaser for valu
able consideration , in relying upon it as
a valid conveyance. It is a bona lido puiv
chaser for valuable consideration and
not a donee who is protected.
1 One Shirk , in 1802 , convoyed certain
real estate to one Snowden. who failed to
record his ducd. In IS'30 ' Snowden died ,
and in 1870 one Pee sought to purchase
the land of Shirk , but was informed that
it was sold and convoyed to Snowdun.
Pou then applied to the adult heirs , and
administrator of thu cstato of Snowdun.
and the guardian of the minor heirs , and
was informed that thu deed in question
had been lost or destroyed. Pou there
upon purchased the laud , taking dueds
from the adult heirs , and with their con
sent a quit claim deed from Shirk , which
last deed he placed on record. Held ,
that a bona lido tmrchosur for a valuable
consideration from a grantee of Pee took
thu title as against an heir , who was a
minor atthe _ time thu ducd from Shirk
was obtained , but a mere donee from Pou
was not so entitled.
5. Where heirs como into a court of
equity to claim an interest in lands which
have not been convoyed , but which havu
been held adversely by other parties for
a long period , they innst do equity by
paying a just proportion of the taxes and
the interest duo thereon.
0. A purchaser pcndcntc lito from a
purchaser who bought without notice and
for a valuable consideration may protect
himself under thu lirst purchase ) .

A History of How Creditors Enforce Pay
ment Against Union Pacifio Employes.
Instances of Wrongs Committed by
Courts How the Liavr Operates on
tlio Ncfornskn aide A l-'e\v
Tacts About the Courts.
At tlio recurrence of the first of each
month tlio paymaster of the Union
Pacilic railway company is besieged by
garnhhec notices from various point
along the line. The principal place
from which these processes arc Issued is
Council Ulufl's. This has been so only
about two years , since the time the
supreme coin t of this state handed down
the opinion lu the case of the Chicago ,
Burlington & Qtiincy railway company
vs Wright , reported in the nineteenth of
Nebraska. In that suit it was att"inpted
to enforce the payment of u debt against
a defendant , the head of a family , resi
dent of lowi : and un employe of the Chicago
cage , Hurlington & Quiucy railroad com
pany by an attachment and garnish
ment against his wages , issued from u
justice court in Omaha. From an order
by the justice to pay the wages , owing
the defendant , into court , the case was
taken linally to the supreme court where
it was held that the money in contro
versy was exempt. Jt had previously
been the prevailing opinion among the
justices throughout the state that the law
in the case was otherwise and the result
of this decision has been to drive the col
lection of foreign claims against
Union Pacilic employes and heads of
"amilcs into states where the
aw is more favorable to the creditor.
As regards the exemption of wages
here is'no state invaded by the Union
i'acilio railway , whoio laws and courts
operate more against the employe than
'n Iowa and the location of Council
U nil's at the terminus of that line makes
t a most advantageous point for the is
suance of these processes. The supreme
court of that great state has held that the
'aw of exempt wages applies onlv to res-
dents of Iowa. U ho consequence has
been to enforce the payment of nearly
nil claims against Union Pacific employes
[ it Council Haiti's the only place in Iowa
where service of garni heo can
be legally made upon that corporation.
The collections made through Council
ISlntl's court" do not all come from places
without this state , but many Nebraska
creditors have learned that their accounts
mil bo pushed to a successful termina-
ion bv the aid of these tribunal.4. This
.s particularly true , o not a lew Omaha
creditors whose inability to make their
collections against Union P.icilic em
ployes in Douglas county courts , has
driven them to the Iowa side of tin * river.
With this combination of circumstances
there has crown up the business for one
or two citizens of that town of buying , or
: it least , of having assigned to themselves
lor collection. From these rcalj or
fradnlent transfers one of two benefits
iriso ; if real the Council Hhilis citizen
makes a big profit on his investment in
what was deemed by the creditors to be a
worthless account , and if fraudulent , the
claimant is saved the trouble of fur-
lishing a bond or advancing the costs of
suit. Tins business of late , however ,
nearly to one man. His name is David
ilcrman , and .several employes of the
company are horrilied daily to learn t ! at
their wages have b. en garmshced m a
Council Hlull's tribunal by a man having
that name. .Jerinan is an old man now
n his dotage , wears a fringe of grey
whiskers under his chin , walks with a
cane , has the appearance of a man at
peace with the world and makes frequent
visits to Omaha in the pursuit of his busi
ness. Ho was formerly : v constable , but
age seems to have dc-itrojcd Ins useful
ness in that line and he has since resorted
to the business ol enforcing chums in
general and against the Union Pacilie
ployes in particular. Jorman him-
ll , it appears , rebels against Ins disa
greeable business. He has st.ited to
Union Pacilic ollieials that ho would not
follow his present pursuit were it not that
ho could'do nothing else. The
rarnishees from Omaha and Council
HliiHs number about hfty per month , and
in fully 7o per cent , of these David .Jer-
man appears as plaintiff. There were
twelve garnisheps from Council Hind's re-
reived at the Union Pacific headquarters
on Friday last , and ton of them were in
stituted by Jerman. The number of at
tachments and garnishment suits against
Union Pacilic employes from the Doug'
las county courts varies from live to lif
teen per month.
One of the great causes of complaint
against the action of the Council Hlnll's
officials is the matter of costs. The ini
tial expense in an attachment and gar
nishment ease is from four to six dollars.
It is a universally established legal prin
ciple in attachment cases where serviee
of a summons cannot be had upon the
defendant , that jurisdiction is obtained
only by taking the property or money of
the debtor into the custody of the Jaw.
In the garniment cases instituted in the
Hlntl's , however , the moment that the
company is served with notice , and sev
eral days , and some times weeks , before
the garnished has made answer by wliich
it may be known whether or not thcro is
anything for the law to operate uponser
vice by publication is commenced in
some paper. An additional expense ol
from thre.o to live dollars is incurred
thereby to the defendant who linding him
self not entitled in Iowa to the
rights secured to him in the state of his
residence , in nine cases out of ten is ob
liged to sbtUo on the terms of the plain-
till'to avoid further costs , trouble and
loss of time. Another grievance arises
Irom the avarice or rapacity of creditors.
Hills winch by the law of the place ol
contract are non-collectible , against
which the statute of limitation has run ,
debts incurred in her own mime by the
wife are sent to this place for enforce
ment , and In many such cases the de
fendant , being too poor to take his cause
to tlio appellate tribunal , is forced to
capitulate , and what never was an obli
gation or what had ceased to bo such , is
paid by the debtor.
It has not been the policy of the Union
Paeilio railway to hinder creditors in the
collection of their honest claims where
their debtor employes can pay without
depiiving their families of the necessities
of life , but against all such as have the
appearance of being trumped up or
fraudulent , it has made a persistnnt and
generally unsuccessful fight. It has
spent many hundreds of dollars in costs
and attorney's fees and has taken tw (
test cases to the supreme court of Iowa ,
in both of which the company was da
feutod. In the first case the defendant
only was a resident of Nebraska , and the
court of last resort held that his wage :
were not exempt. In the secont
both were residents of Nebraska
and the company contending or
the ground of want of jurisdiction ,
the court held that where thereis no franc
in obtaining jurisdiction a non-resident
could sue a non-resident and the lattcr's
waires were not exempt. The supreme
courts of Kansas , Missouri , Nebraska ant
Illinois hold exactly the opposite ot the
two cases mentioned.
"Tho law" ( ot exemption ) said the sn
premo cburt of Iowa many years ago
' in based upon tlio idea ( but as a matter
of public policy for the promotion of the
> ropcrry of the state , and to render inde.-
ran'dcnt and aboVe want each head of
no family of the cnreriinicnt , bo should
jo so protected that ho may live beyond
ho reach of financial misfortune and the
lenmnds of creditors , who have given
nm credit under such law. " This body
lisregarding these principles so laid down
103 brought tears to many homes in this
city and" allowed the wolf to look into
he faces of famishing wives and children.
Iho injustice of loi\a courts in many
cases in this city lias oppressed the la-
boringman's family , for it is against this
class of workmen only that these laws
apply with their terrible force.
It has only been a few weeks ago that
.ho writer met an acquaintance , a clerk
it the headquarters , at the corner of Six
teenth and Farnam streets. Hoinjr asked
why he looked c'.eppondent , he said : "It
s now long past my hours of toll , my
wife who has been cuttlined to her bed
'or ' several weeks by sickness is ,
L know , waiting for my return ,
with my lastmonth's pav.and to-day noon
L learned it was 'iiirnishetd across Iho
Ivor for a butcher bill of ? 10. Our decor -
or has refused to attend her further un-
ess paid , my landlord has served mo

teart to go home. ' ' The next day bo
went to the Hlull's , paid the claim and
co.sUs , and out of a salary of $111 per
iionth had ? 'Ji left , The clerk admitted
the bill was correct but siekue s and ncc-
ss'ity Lad prevent' d its payment. An
other case was that of a helper in thn
shops. Several years ago Ills wife , in her
own name , contracted debts , and the
creditor , seeing no other way to make his
? laim , garnisheed the wages of tliu hus *
jand. His wages per month never ev-
ceeded ? . " > ( } . He had no means with wliich
[ o ii.terpo o his defense and he settled on
the terms of the phiintiu" .
A s.u CAM : .
The case of one llartlieb , a suit brought
n Justice Holsli'v's court in this city
some ten days ago. exemplifies tlio ex-
.roniity to which this law drives the.
laborer , llartlieb formerly lived 'n ' this
city , was employed by the Union Pacific
mil kept live or six boarders at his homo
on South Tenth street. His employer
i lie red him a better situation on the
Mull's side and lie accepted it. About six
months ago he moved with Ins family to
C ; icil Haiti's , owing his grocer Jj-'JS.'lO
A suit in attachment on the ground of
non-residence was instituted against him ,
returnable last Saturday morning at t )
o'clock. The railway company
answered it was owing tlio
defendant ? 'JS.15. Saturday moraine
before l ) o'clock when the justice cainu
to his ollieo he found llartlieb , his wife
and boy , about live veais old , waitingfor
the arrival of the ollicial. They were all
thinlv clad for such a cold winter morn
ing , and their clothing , although patched
in many places , \\-as scrupulously clean
and neat. They were respectable Ger
mans , ana prior to their coming to this
country ho had been a machinist in tlio
shops of Carlsrnhe , and slio bad been an
employe in a cigar factory in the same
place. When he realized the jeopardy
in which monthly stipend was placed
he could restrain his grief and anger no
longer. He bewailed the fate that hud
ever led him and his family from his
fatherland , where he said they lived
much more comfortably and respectably
than they did in America. "For the last
week,1' he continued , " 1 have worked on
bread and coll'eo alouo. My wife and
child have shared this same fare with me.
'v if you take my pay from me you
eompej me either to apply to the county
antnoritios for support lor my wife and
child , or become a thiei and a robber.
I was kept at work through the winter
by my bo-s simply beciiiise 1 was an hon
est laborer , and by this greatest effort 1
have kept my family from hunger anil
cold , but the rigor of your laws is too
severe for a poor man. " The justice re-
lea cd tlio garnishment and Hartliob
agreed to pay the tlebt when his employ
ment became more regular.
The attorneys for the Union Pacilic
have long been devising means to deter
the issuance of the e processes against
its employes and they have at hist con
cluded to test the jurisdiction of the Iowa
justices to issue attachments and gar
nishments against non-residents. It is
claimed by the railway attorneys that
where the service of the Mimn.ons and
order is not made personally upon the
defendant , that the cpurlac'juirus 1:0 jur
isdiction. To test this question the com
pany has t.iken such case to the dL-ir.ot
court ol Pottawattamie county and should
an adverse decision be reached the cause
will bo taken lor tinal determination to
the supreme court. If defeated
in this tribunal the only remedy
possible is an appeal to the
legislature of Iowa , but any relief from
that body seems improbable an lutile at
tempts in times past have been made.
The operation of the inferior conns of
Nebraska is generally'favorable to the
.security of the rights of heads of fami
lies , but expense , time and trouble are
often incurred in obtaining them. The
head of a family.when he linds his wages
carnislieed , has often to employ the ser
vices of an attorney to seeure thi-m. It
has been suggested , and possibly may be
come a law at this session of the legisla
ture , that the alliant , when it is sought to
garnisiiee the wages of the defendant ,
Mate in his affidavit for this process that
lie verily believes that the employe is an
unmarried man. If this should become
u law the oft repeated garnishees against
the same defendant , issued at the in-
staneo of an irate creditor , to cause him
the loss of his situation will in a great
measure cease.
The pain and mUerv suffered by those
who are alllicted with dyspepsia are in

equalled or surpassed by the confusion
and torture of the mind , thus limbing the

has caused thousands to bo th.mkf'il ' for
this great medicine. It dispels the

CIKWKOIIU , Nob. , Feb. 7. [
pondenco of the HEK. ] Crawford is gut
ting ready for the boom , which' is al
ready putting in an appearance in Dawes
county , in common with the remainder
of Northwestern Nebraska. The citi
zens met last week and organized an
immigration cominittfu with ( Jeneral
Hrisbin us president , and arranged for
subordinate committees in every precinct
in this part of the county , which is tribu
tary to Crawford. Knquiries about
the government land vacant in
this vicinity are pouring in daily
and spring will see a. , rush of new
settlers unequalled in i the history of
western Dawes county. . With a railroad
running its entire length and thousands
of acres of fine farming land still waiting
homesteaders and prcomptors. Dawc-
county in the neighborhood of Crawford
offers unequalled advantages for the
ff.rmor. Crawford is crowing steadily.
The trade from Fort llobmson is an im
portant element in furthering the material -
ial interests of this community. With
tlio enlargement of the post which is soon
to begin , this will bo still further in
creased while a largo amount of money
will be exponed and distributed among
our citizens in consequence. W. U. Ed
gar , chairman of the Crawford immigra
tion committee will gladly answer ul
laquirlcj from Intending settlers.

Much complaint is being made about
the wavin which the cars nro allowed to
block uu the Tenth street crossing often
at 0 o'clock at night. Some tlmo ago the
council passed a resolution ordering the
arrest of any switchman or brakeman
who should allow the tracks to bo thus
blocked up. Wednesday night the carria
ges route to Urownell hall were compelled
to wait twenty or thirty minutes tit this
crossing bet-au o the tracks were con-
pletely blockaded.

I have been troubled for several years
with an affection of the nerves which no
doctor or no medicine could cure until I
tried HitANbiUiTii's 1'n.t.s. I would be
taken with a violent pain in the middle
of my spine , and my arms and legs would
twitch violently. It acted something like
St. Vitus Dance , for 1 couldn't control
uy limbs. It would come and go onee
or twice a month , lastiuu two or three
days at a time Finally , at the beginning
of one of my attacks , 1 took live HKAMI-
itr.TH's 1'n.t.s. As soon as they acted
freely I found myself almost well. So I
continued taking them for a month one
or two a niirht. It is now a year since 1
lave bad an attack , and 1 attribute my
cure to OiuxiMi.Tii's PIM.S.
