The Supreme Court's Opinion On tbo
Registration Law.
Judge Kccsc Says It Is So Crudely
Ptatrn Up That It Knfl > rccinent
Would Hare Ilccn Impractic
able District Court.
Tha long-lookcd-for decision oa the regis
tration law was handed down yesterday by
Judge Reese. The opinion , which Is very
voluminous , is in effect that the entire regis
tration law is unconstitutional and that all
acts under its provisions are void. The sub
stance of the decision is clearly stated in the
following syllabus prepared by the court :
State ex reL Stearns vs O'Connor. Quo war-
ranto. Judgment of Custer. Opinion by
Reese , J.
1. Under the constitution ot the state of
Nebraska which prescribes the qualifications
of voters , and provides that all ejections shall
be free , aniMhcre shall bo no hindrance or
Impediment to the right of a qualified voter
to exercise the elective franchise , a registra
tion law which absolutely deprives an elector
of Uif richt to vote unless registered on one
of four "days , the last one being ten days
prior to the election , Ss void.
2. A registry law , so far as it provides for
a register of qualified electors to bo made ,
and which constitutes such registration one
mode of proof of the elector's right , and so
far us it might require an elector.whosename
is not upon such rcgisUrtto : make any other
reasonable proof of his right to the judges of
election at the time of offering his vote , would
be valid ; but where it absolutely deprives
the elector of his vote unless previously regis
tered upon certain days named in the law it
is void.
3. A registry law , to be valid , must be rea
sonable and impartial and calculated to facili
tate and secure the constitutional right of
suffrage , and not to subvert or injuriously ,
unreasonably , or unnecessarily restrain , or
iin | > ede theright. . Vide Daggett vs. Huston ,
43 Ohio St. , 543.
4. The cct to amend the election laws for
metropolitan cities and cities of the flirt class
in the state of Nebraska ( Laws of lbb , 314) ) ,
being in contravention of that clause of tbo
constitution that * * Xo bill shall contain more
than one subject , which shall be clearly ex
pressed in its title , and no law shall bo
amended unless the new act contains tbo sec
tion. or sections , so amended * and the section
or sections K > amended shall be repealed , " Is
The following decisions were also filed :
Delaney vs Lander , error from Lancaster
county , amrmed ; opinion by Cobb. J.
1. The contract sued on examined and con
2. Where a contract has been reduced to
writim : , as a general rule of law , verbal evi
dence is not allowed to bo given of what
passed between the parties , either before the
written Instrument was made , or during the
time of its preparation , so as to add to or
subtract from , or in any manner to vary or
qualify the written contract ,
3. After a contract has been reduced to
writing it is competent for the parties at any
time before breach of it , by a new contract
not in writing , either altogether to waive ,
dissolve , or annul the former agreement , erin
in any manner to add to , subtract from , or
vary or qualify the terms of it ; which is to
bo proved partly by the written agreement ,
and partly by the > ub * < 2quent verbal terms
enrrafted uj-on what will be thus left of the
written agreement.
Driscoll vs Troughton. Error from Douglas
county. Affirmed. Opinion by Maxwell ,
Ch. J.
1. Wierfl there is a conflict in the testi
mony and it is equally balanced , a verdict
will not bo set aside as being against the
weight of evidence.
2. Instructions sot forth in the opinion ,
Held , to be predicated ujon the testimony
and not erroneous.
stabrook vs Hatberoth. Ijror from Doug
las county. ReverH-d. Opinion by Max
well , Ch , J.
The action of forcible entry and detainer
Wider the statute , being a civil remedy to recover -
. cover the possession of premises unlawfully
and with force withheld from the plaintiff , it
will bo sufficient to sustain the charge of
forcible detainer , that the party unlawfully
in ixjsjesslon refuses to vacate the premises
on lawful notice so. to do. Campbell vs
Coonradt , 22 Kas. , 7&S , approved and fol
lowed. Myers vs Koenig , 5 Neb. , 419.
D. M. Strong , of Dodge county , and W A.
McAllister , of Platte county , were admitted
to practice. The following causes were ar-
rued and submit U1 : Sturtevant vs 'Wino-
fand , motion to dismiss ; ICeeler vs Elston ;

In district court yesterday. Judge Chap
man , who returned from Kearney in the
morning , resumed Jury trials , while Judgts
field heard the cases which were tried with
out a Jury. The disc on trial the day before
was given to the Jury at 10 o'clock and an
other Jury was at once impaneled in the libel
suit brought by Leonard II. King against the
State Journal company. In this case , as
stated heretofore , Mr. King sues the Journal
for (5,000 for the publication of an alleged
defamatory article against his character.
The article in question was sent by the Jour
nal's correspondent at the Bennett camp
meeting to the Journal a year ago. The
communication alleges that Mr. King was
drunk and riotous and was forcibly ejected
from the meeting. A trial shortly after in
the county court cleared Mr. King from bad
actions at the meeting and this suit for dam
ages was shortly after instituted. The talc-
Ing of evidence was commenced in the case
yesterday. The trial promises to be of no
remarkable interest.

An Ungrateful Son.
According to the story of Mrs. Dorsey , who
lives in a little cottage on the corner of
Thirty-first and Franklin streets , her step
son , Wyman Dorsey , Is anything but an ex-
exemplary young man. Mrs. Dorsey is a
widow lady and a cripple , having to walk
with a-crutch. She has two little children
whom she has had to support by going out
and doing day's work. Wyman , although
enjoying the comforts of her home , has failed
to do anything to help support her , and has
made it a habit periodically to come home
drunk and make things disairreeable for her.
Sunday morning he came home in his u ual
intoxicated condition and drove her from
home , and refusing her admittance until a
late hour that night. Meanwhile he tore the
furniture to pieces and thrust the fragments
into the stove. The bedding also met with
the same fate. She therefore swore out a
warrant for his arrest last evening and he
was locked up.
"Wreck on the Union Pacific.
A wreck occurred on the Union Pacific
near the Twentieth street crossing , about 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon , but fortunately
nobody was hurt , The trackmen had re
moved a rail from the main track and had
posted a flagman to warn all approaching
trains. Tim Monyhan , the engineer of en
gine No. 516 with an extra from the west ,
saw the fingman , but the train was under
such headway that he was unable to stop be
fore he was off the track. After leaving the
rail the engine turned to the richt and
stopped right across the second track south.
The tender became detached , and it with six
cars went into the ditch to the left , two of
them being totally wrecked. One of these
was loaded with fruit * , but these were dam
aged but slightly. Fifteen cars were more
or less broken but $3,000 will probably cover
everything. A hundred dollars will pat the
locomotive in good trim again.
A Xoichbor Quarrel in Court.
John Benson is lying in a cell at the cen
tral police station charged with stealing a
couple of sections of stovepipe from Mrs.
Kitty Hart. The two are neighbors , and
during the summer John has kept a stove
standing Just across the line on the lot of
Mrs. Hnrt. When ho came out to get his
stove a day or two ago , she demanded pay for
storage. Benson refused to give her any
thing , but , waiting until she had disappeared ,
carried the stove into his house. There hap
pened to be two pieces of stovepipe with it
that belonged to Mrs. Hart , and she speedily
bunted up the city attorney and swore out a
charge of larceny against Benson. It was
served on him yesterday and he will be tried
Siting a Railroad. x
Hans P. Jensen , according to a petition
filed with the clerk of the district court this
morning , asks that the B. Sc. M , railroad com
pany pay to him the sum'of 3,000 for injuries
received under the following conditions :
About the middle of last September Jensen
purchased a ticket for Central City , and after
riding several miles was Informed that the
train went only as far as Aurora. Jensen
then asked that the train be stopped at Hamp
ton where he had friends. The train slacked
up at this station and Jensen Jumped , his foot
being caught in tha wheels and crushed so
badly that amputation was necessary.

Ono Million Dollars in Government

Kclle'8 Letter.
Yor.K , Oct. IS. [ Correspond
ence of the BEE. ] A hundred bridal
gifts lay on a table in a parlor. Tbcy
were a variety of articles from silver
ware to fans , from screens to diamonds ,
and guesta were pa&singfrom * ono to an
other in a critical examination. On
one stand was a low , oval glass case ,
and it was observable that close by
ftood two men who never stirred from
their stations. They were guardians of
that onu present. Was there some
thing in that glass receptacle alive and
that would fly off if uncovered ? Possi
bly , for "wealth takes wings. " Gazing
into the case the visitors saw a loose
heap of government bonds. Their
value was a million dollars. That was
the bridal gift of Morris , the Croesus of
lottery men , to his daughter on her
marriage to Thurlow Weed Barnes ,
nephew of the late Thurlow Weed.
The wedding was elegantly plain in
other respects , and even bonds arc
common in aspect , but what a quantity
of eager interest did center in the mill-
ioned eventl And were they not re
garded as truly "the holy bonds of
wedlock ? "
I went with a girl friend yesterday to
ECO her beautified. The place was no
factory of hair colorings or complexion
washes , but the highly professional
New _ York ho-spital , ono of our great
public benefactions , and the beautifier
was staid and orthodox Dr. Bull. The
maiden was already pretty , pave that
she had the disfiguration known as
harelip. The improvement will make
her entirely kissable. Too few parents
are willing , through false kindness to
their children or through ignorance , to
submit their little ones to the knife of
the surgeon at an early age , and as a
result we have around us unsightly
persons who might have had their
features moulded into these of good-
looking men and women. The case in
point was that of a girl about seven
teen who had a single harelip with pro
trusion of the teeth of the upper jaw.
There was also acleft in that jaw which ,
of course complicated the deformity.
Had the operation been performed
in infancy , the chances are that
the woman would have shown very
slight , if any traces of
but as it is a more or less plain
scar will always bo visible. She was
put under ether , and a small slice cut
off one side of the fissure in the lip and
a slice off the other side , nearly , but
not quite to the bottom of the lip. Then
these two raw edges were brought to
gether and stitched ; and the piece of
fiesh that remained from the second in
cision was carried along the base of the
lip so that no indentation should bo
afterwards observed. The surgeon's
plastic hand now went to work to fash
ion the disfigured member into one that
should serve her well for the remainder
of her days. This then completed the
lip and there was left only the protrud
ing teeth to remedy. With two or three
sharp blows of the mallet upon the
chisel the top part of the two sides of
the jaw were separated , brought into
opposition by depressing them and secured -
cured in place. Then the operation ended
and it showed immediate signs of great
and lasting improvement in appeara'nco ,
one which cannot fail to be of vast ben
efit to her as a woman. She has never
voluntarily smiled since she was old
enough to known of her disfiguration ,
so fearful was she of displaying it. A
month hence she can begin a life of
A tasse for the grotesque and horrible

pins and coffins for sleeve buttons , that
induces a dainty girl to choose a dress
with snakes outlined on it , and a metal
spider perched at her throat , has got
into architecture. I went to call ,
and. mounting the steps , laid my
hand carelessly on the iron rail that
meandered up the stone stoop. To
my horror it fell on the head of a bronze
and realistic snake that was coiled
round the balustrade. I stood aghast
and looked. The whole row of fine
houses had the same sort of approach ,
and twisting about all the hand-rails
was the vile -eerpent with battered head
and baleful eyes natural and hideous
enough to make ono afraid to enter or
leave the house. It's to be hoped old
Major Jim Jams never rents one of 'em ;
he'll come some night from the club and

It is a bad practice to write several
letters at one job , enclose them in en
velopes and address the batch. Many
accidents occur. A gentleman who uses
a pencil for his correspondence , but
makes the superscriptions in ink , wrote
the three following epistles , secured
them in envelopes and laid them in
order on his deslc. The first was to his
prospective mother-in-law , the second
to his latest and best girl , and the last
to his tailor. Discovering that the ink
was absent in the stand , ho left his desk
for a moment. A clerk in search of a
ruler took up the top letter that lay
upon the article , and put it below the
the missive intended for the
tailor. Back came the com-
letter-writer. Ho addressed
jtter first in the row to his coming
mother-in-law , the next to Maude , nnd
the misplaced epistle to the _ tailor. At 4
o'clock that afternoon a military look
ing female , sitting beside an invalid
daughter , got black in the face as she
read on the stamped paper of the dis
covered son-in-law : ' 'Baby-mine Your
pet will be able after all to get away.
Have sprung the tallest kind of a stall
on the Varapiro , which I will tell you
about when we meet. Take a car to
Vesey street , and get there at sharp S
with a big appetite for a good supper.
it will be a long day for your old man ,
but 8 o'clock will have to make a land
ing , and then hurrah ! " That was the
way the lightning struck in ono place.
Up town in a gorgeous flat Maude
Tricot puzzled over this mystic epistle :
"You old fraud , that cheviot was the
worst job that ever was done. 1 thought
the checks beat the world giving me
fits , but here you are worse than ever.
I shall certainly have to try some ono
else , and I don t want to , but you are
certainly getting infernally careless.
Will let you have sorao money during
the month , but I'm beaotly hard up just
now. " At the moment 'that Maud was
imagining her sweetheart was gone
completely mad , and that an infuriated
middle-Bged woman was making her
toilette to go down town , George's
tailor studied this document with a
dazed expression : "Kindest of friends ,

be the case. How sad that this parting
can't bo avoided , but business id busi
ness , and it's for both vour dear sakes
that I must attend to this little matter.
With my love and a kiss , your troubled
lad. " At S a cab containing a lady
stood in Vessey street writing for a
gentleman , who bounced the door open
and blurted out to the driver the name
of a restaurant.
"Now , my little girl , tell mo all the
news. " he added , as he sprang in ; and
his blood froze and his hair rose as his
mother-in-law said : ' 'You villain , I
will. "
Cornalba is ono of the three or four
premier danseuses who , for a number of
years , have led the ballots in grand
operas and other pretentious stage en
tertainments. 12 you can recall her at
nil , you will do so as a little woman of
thirty-five , with an intellectual face ,
willowy figure and iron toes. Dp you
over think of these dancers as ordinary
women , in the garb of their sex , and as
doing anything else than whirling and
tip-toeing in a theatre ? Morello is an
Italian who keeps one of the numerous
table d'hote restaurants in New York.
Like the rest , ho sells to you for a dollar
lar a dinner composed of maccaroni ,
grease and some other things. I ate
there yesterday. Into the room came a
woman who first attracted my attention
by the fact that she wore neither hat
nor wrap , and was therefore manifestly
a lodger. When 1 looked again her face
became familiar.
"Who is she ? " I asked of Morello. "I
recognize her face well enough , but I
can't place her. "
"That is my wife , " said the caterer.
'tThen probably I have not teen her.
I was mistaken. "
"O , no ;
the danseuse. "
Thus are our stage fairies shockingly
related to humdrum life.
The largest assemblages of feminine
beauty in America are at what are
" " " ' "
called "professional" or ma
tinees in this city. On these occasions
the house is practically free to ac
tresses at a time of disengagement.
One of them occurred this week. At
least six hundred women werethereand
the majority were young ac
tresses , ranging from Mrs. Lang-
try and Mrs. Potter in beauteous
fame to exhibits from the burlesques
and comic opera choruses. Langtrysat
between a girl from the mute but lovely
rear row of a current travesty and a
pupil from a school of acting , either of
whom was handsomer than sho. When
it is considered that physical beauty is
the most important element in the selec
tion of actresses , and that New York is
the market for histrionic aspirants , it
can be believed that an audience to
largely composed of actresses was mar
vellously handsome. A good "photograph
of that crowd with their vast variety of
beautiful faces , and their actresy pic-
turesqueness of attire , would be a pic
ture to never tire of looking at.
A woman somewhat distinguished in
social lifo said to me : "I liave been
greatly edified with a description in a
series of articles on the effect upon
women of
in New Yqrkwhich brings several thou
sands of girls into relation with men in
pusinessr The articles were filled with
interviews with men , who all declared
that if anything was needed to make
the fair sex perfect , it was to set them
side by side with male clerks and em-
plea in the offices and counting-rooms
down town. These gentlemen forgot
what all the great writers of this mor
tal world have declared , that woman is
a mystery past finding out ; and all leap
into the subject boldly only to find it
over their depth and to be put to the
necessity of swimming out ungracefully.
The manager of a telegraph office -
fice remarks that the girls in his
employ pick out the best opera
tors for husbands , as if that was a proof
of their smartness , whereas if they were
so wonderfully keen they would not
marry any telegraph operators at all ,
not oven the best. Ho declares that
this now race ol women ; the type
writers , clerks , cashiers and errand
girls , are never insulted by the men , do
not lese their femininity in the least ,
dress just as well as other women left at
home , knit and t-ew during the lunch
eon hour , develop their minds so as to
read oven the financial columns in the
newspapers , take home the magazines ,
beautify the commonest rooms in the
meanest tenements , and never are
known lobe concerned in a single scan
dal , such as are found in the churches
and the parlors of upper-tcndom.
"Such nonsense ! " the woman ex
claimed ; "such delicious dreaming !
Why , when I read about these new
Eves in the now commercial Garden of
Eden , I was positively on the verge of
forgetting that these could possibly be
the same maidens 1 ride up and down
town with in the cars occasionally ; the
same that I am forever meeting on the
streets. But there is no mistake about
it. They are the same. And yet men
will believe that series of discoveries
about our sex. They are certain to do
so. For two reason : first , because half
the male sex has a capacity for being
stuiTed with romance about women ,
the limit of which no one has yet
reached ; second , because the other half
who employ women on starvation wages
will , after reading of the good they are
doing our sex , salvo their consciences
with thoughts of the philanthropy of
substituting girls for men at half pay ,
and will discharge more men , and still1
further reduce the wa es of their girls.
"As proof of the sudden elevation of
womanhood itis announced that tba
cashier of the largest ladies' shopping
store in town is a young girl. But she
is paid only one-half what a competent
man would get. Another notable in
stance of the wonders of the female
revolution is that all the clerical work
of a certain largo concern on Broadway
is performed by beautiful young ladies
in fashionable gowns. I sincerely trust
that the reference is not to the estab
lishment that is pointed to by all its
neighborhood with a very
because the employer nnd the
beautiful young girls are known to
go into the country together over
Sundays ono this Sunday and
another the next and to lunch with
him one at a time , and to quit work and
stroll uptown with him. and I know not
what the merchants of the district do
not say. But no woman with an v gump
tion or judgment would dwell upon
cases like that as representative of
female working life , for it does not take
much experience or penetration to know
that women who drudge and toil for the
wages the sex get in this city must bo
made of tough-fibred virtue" Shame
and hard work are not friendly. One is
not often caught in the society of the
other. But it is a wee little trifle too
much to read of elevating the young
woman by putting her at work at men s
work just when they are in the midst
of a ten years' spell of wonder
ing what can bo done to rescue
your sex from the injury this life is
doing to it. For that is exactly my case.
For years I have been perplexing my
self with wonder when the world would
wake up this abuse of women.I would
rather have the the stage reformed , the
ballot purified , the pulpit unsexcd , the
laws invoked against women's work in
shops and factories or any hundred of a
thousand awfully radical things done to
release my sex from this yoke of man's
greed , than have the present state of
things continue. "
That is bitter talk , truly , and yet it
came from a woman who has philanthropically -
thropically studied the subject.
