The fltnto board of transportation mot yes
terday pursuant to notlco published to con-
wider ii rovlnlon of frelsht tariffs In the state
jind tlic propriety of putting In force a new
distance tariff. 'J'hc Hurllngton ofUcials
\vero represented hut representative1 ! ! of
ntlicr roads wcro not present. The injunc
tion case nrcparcd by the Union Pacific , re
hashing former utatumcnts thut the road was
fiitbjcct only to federal control , was dis
cussed Informally mid Old not appear to
excite the board to any appreciable extent.
Two cases of complaints against the U. & M.
were first taken up , cmo of them being the
question of orclerint * the road to put bruku-
incn on all trains. Manager HnldreRO tcstl-
lied in tlu ) matter mid thu board ordered that
the casu bo modltled requiring an air brake
on trains , brakemcn to bo employed when
more than than three cars comprised a train.
The complaint inado concerning poor track
ami crossings nt and in the vicinity of Adams
Htatiun was next considered and the board
ndjonrned at noon to visit the alleged
defective track In the afternoon but
failed to make thu trip on account of the late
ness of the train' . They resumed the session
ut 4 p. in. mid took up thu proposed que.itlon
of abolishing distributing a tarllT in tlm state
nnd the enforcement of a ono dlstunco tariff.
Therowcro priwnt at the mooting Messrs. C.

] J , Hergcr and .1. .1. Wemplc , of the Hastings
board of trade , and I. M. Raymond and J. u , .
XJtt , of the Lincoln freight bureau. The ar
guments of all parties wen ; against the
abolition oT the distributing tariff , the com
mon opinion being thut such net would tend
to destroy commercial centers in the state ,
nnd to tlm upbuilding of wholesale ! centers in
Iowa and Kansas ,
Manager Iloldrldgc stated to thoboard thut
complaints of a character assailing the com
pany's road bed as unsafe were wholly untrue ,
and were Instigated b.y Irresponsiblu parties.
Further lnj stated that they were of direct
nnd poilllvo damage to the load creating an
impression of danger Unit did not exist. Ho
calh'4 on the board to suppress such complaints -
plaints from entering the columns of news-
] > ai > crs , and ilM uot think that the public
good demanded their publication. Mr.
Mnngor stated that the records in such
complaints were similar to court records ,
and had to ho HO treated. The. board there
fore took no action but deferred it until later
in the session and adjourned until 9 o'clock
this morning.

1. A vendor of real estate , upon the abso
lute conveyance thereof by deed , has no lien
on the land to conveyed for mien portion of
> hu money as remains unpaid. Ed-
ininster vs Hlggins , ( i Neb , i ! < i , " > .
1) ) . The policy of our law is to discourage
Kecret liens nnd to require all instruments uf-
fcctlni/ the tltlo to real estate to be entered
, jipon Jicord. Id.
il. Tht 'doctrine thi.t the vendor has a lien
on the land conveyed for purclmso money re
gaining upald , is repugnant , to our statutes
in relation to real estate , and it is no part of
the law of this stiitc.
4. Hulo applied. A. sold mid deeded cer
tain real estate to P. on the 29th day of June ,
1885. On the samu day T. . by virtue of a con
tract with P. therofor , nold and delivered to
Iiim material for the erection of a building on
wild propei ty. On the 23d day of July , 1N35 ,
P. and wife executed a mortgage to A. to secure -
cure the unpaid portion of thopurchasoprico.
Held , That the mechanics' lien in favor of T.
was t uuerior to the Hen o A. created by the
Powers vs. Craig. Rrror from Cherry
county. Affirmed. Opinion by Hcesc , J.
1. In an action for damages resulting f torn
the destruction of property by iiro negligently -
, gently sot upon the prairies of this state , the
.question of negiljjeneo is iilono for the Jiiry
'to determi'jo.
2. In such case where It was shown that
the llro originated at the camp 11 ro built upon
the prairlo in the vicinity of a largo quantity
of dry grass at 1 o'clock in the day , when
the wind was high and blowing in the direc
tion of the defendant's proocrty , the ques
tion of the custom of the country in plowing
lire guards around such property is not a ma
terial inquiry , and especialy so when a
stream thirty feet in width was between the
proi-ort.v destroyed by the llro nnd the place
where the II ro was kindled. In such case the
failure to plow or burn llro guards would not
bo contributory negligence.

ration of the plaintiff In laid action , though
certified by the secretary of state us a copy ,
contained Intrinsic evidence of being the

li. On the trial of the nctlon , plaintiff's
Kxiks of nccount wcro Introduced in evidence
und It was shown that n greater number of
the entries nt specified dates were made by
: ind in the handwriting of a clerk In plaintiff's
employ who was neither called nor subKL'ncd |
.o verify such entries , nor was his absence
it-counted for ; huld , error nnd n new trial
! l. On the trial of n motion to discharge nn
irdcr of attachment to u Judga ut chambers ,
Jicro being evidence tending to provu the ab
sconding of defendant with intent to defraud
his creditors , mid that ho had left the county
of his residence to avoid the service of Mini-
uons , the same being grounds of attachment
iillcged In the affidavit for attachment , and
the weight of the evidence not being clearly
against the finding and Judgment of the Judge
of suld motion , the same Is upheld.
Campbell vs Holland. Krror from Sarpy
county. Afllrmcd. Opinion by Cobb. J.
1. The evidence tended to prove that the
ilaintiff purchased none-half Interest in the
iroperty In litigation at a certain date , ho
: hen being in possession as agent , and con-
; lnued In possession until a subsequent date
when he purchased the remaining one-half
Interest. The. question being the bona ( Ides
of both of .said purchases and sales. Held ,
that the declarations of the vendor as to his in anil ownership of said property ,
mule after said lirst purchase and sale , but
iioforo the last one. were admissible in

2. On an issue of fact as to whether an
assignment or transfer of pro | > crty was made
to hinder , delay or defraud creditors , it is
competent wlieio the assignor or vender Is u
witness to Inquire of him whether in mr.king
the assignment or transfer liu intended to
delay or defraud his creditors. See Suymore

4. On the trial defendants cross-examined
thu plaintiff as to certain erasures in his no-
xmut books and u leaf of one of them which
jippcarcd to have been torn out ; ho answered
that the erasures had been made by himself
to correct errors , nnd the leaf torn out also
by himself because it had been accidentally
soiled and rendered unlit for use ; defendants
afterwards offered said books In evidence ,
which offer was refused. Held , mi error.
5. When upon thu examination or cross-
examination of n witness a curtain conversa
tion Is drawn from him In evidence , the oppo
site party will always be permitted to cross-
examine or re-examine him for the purpose
of eliciting the whole of such conversation.
The scope of such ox.imination is n question
peculiarly for the trial court.
(1. ( The plaintiff being a witness on his own
behalf was cross-examined as to the source
from which he derived the money used In the
purchase of the pro ) > crty in litigation , and
having answered that a certain portion of it
had been received by him in payment of u
loan previously made to his father , an at
tempt being made as well In his furlhercross-
examination as otherwise , to discredit hid
statement in this behalf , ho was permitted to
testify In rebuital as to where lie obtained
tlio funds out of which said loan was made :
Huld , No error.
7. The instructions given to a Jury must bo
construed together , and if when considered
as n whole they properly state the law , it is
RUfllcient. IJartling vs Hchrcnds , ! > U Neb , ,
8. When the law applicable to the pleadings
and evidence in a case has already been fully
given by instructions to u Jury by the court
on its own motion , it is > not error to refuse
further instructions.
' . ) . Where , upon a motion for a new trial
founded on affidavits , all of the material facts
contained in such aflidavito uro contradicted
by affidavits in resistance , the Judgment of
the trial court in denying such motion will
ordinarily be uphold.
10. A new will not bo granted on ac
count of uuwly discovered evidence merely
cumulative in its character.

Warnell vs McConnell. Error from Hich
ardson county. Affirmed. Opinion by
Kecse , Ch. J.
1. Persons licensed to sell intoxicating
liquors , are jointly and severally liable fo :
all damages resulting from their traffic , and
actions may bo maintained against them
jointly for all damages to which they liav
contributed by the sale of liquors.
2. Principals mid their sureties upon 11
cense bonds are liable to nn action for dam
ages Jointly with thu principals and surctic
upon other bonds of a like character , whil
all the principals have contributed to HIL
same in jury by the sale of intoxicating liquors.
! ! . The sureties upon the bond of u licensed
vendor of Intoxicating liquors are liable 1101
only for the damages resulting directly fron
the nets of their principals , but for all dam
ages to which such acts contribute. Ant
where , during the existence of u luonsobasct
iiton | such bond , the principal sells intoxicat
ing liquors to ono who Is disqualified to crr
a support for his family , by reason of his in
toxicatlon , the liability of the surety attache :
and continues throughout the period of .such
disqunlitlcation , whether the same terminates
during the license year , or continues for a
longer time.
4. Where a married woman sues upon
license bonds for loss of support for herself
nnd children , occasioned by the disqualitlca-
tion of her husband to earn such support by
reason of his intoxication , she docs not
sue in the cnpncUy of a guardian or next
friends for her children , but the action may
bo maintained by httr in her own narno and
right , and thu damages , when collected , must
bo paid to her to be used as she may see
proper for the maintainanca of herself nnd
children. In such action she may join her
children with her , or she may prosecute the
suit in her own name for the whole damages ,
as she may elect , it being shown by her
petition that she has such children who nro
deprived of their means of support by reason
of the disqualification of thu father , or per
son ujKin whom such support devolves.

Kleven sharp-shod councilmcn slid to the
council chamber last night nnd transacted
considerable business. A majority of the
gentlemen were in n frisky and humorous
mood , and the delegation hi the vicinity of
Lee's , Ford's and Lowry's side of the house

Writing of the discovery of tin in
quantities in the lilitck Hills , in
which ho and his nsjot'lnles , after most
thorough examination , have llio fullest
confidence , Lord Thurlow says in the
London Financial News of a recent ilato :
It represents the dawn of n new era that
can not fall to bo most unwelcome to the
favored mid very narrow circle that has
"iltherto handled the tin trndo of the world.
' 'a my mind , in place of there being anything
trango in this discovery , it Is amazing it was
ot imido before. All other metals have
icon discovered on the vast North American
'ontlnent ' under circumstances and in quantl-
les hitherto unprecedented , mid suitable to
lie unlimited requirements of the future cltl-
, ons of the United States. Gold , silver , cop-
icr , iron , and now tin , nro required by the
\merlcaii people and have been placed by
irovldence ready to their hands. No power
in earth will maku me believe thut all the tin
n this world has been placed on ono side of

'Irst. the American minor has only an eye

iccondly , this tin region has only quite ro-
ently been made accessible by Its exclusion
rom the Sioux reservation , Till quite lately
he Black Hills of Dakota were a scaled book

among the heavy importers of tin to
'his country , mul are naturally inter
ested in proclaiming the statement that
there are no tin mines in this country
of sullleient e.xtont to pay for working.
Mr. Dodge of that lirm is reported as
saying :
No doubt there are indications of gas there
> ut the general impression here is that the
ileposit is of no commercial value. Tlio com-
) imy established something of a plant two
ears ago , but 1 do not Jtiowthat ( tiny tin was
ever taken out. There have been n good
nany pockets of tin foiind in this country.but
none cf them has overpaid for working , but
when wo do get a good mine hero there will
he no need to go to England for capital to de
velop it.
W.hat Mr. Dodge anil other importers
nnd dealers in foreign tin "do not know"
of the existence of tiii deposits in this
country of suHieicntlv largo extent to
pay for working would make a respect
able volume. Tlio object T > f this article
is to enlighten such iih really desire ac
quaintance with the proven facts.
in the 131ack Hills'in Juno , 1883. Prior
to that time the ore had been well
known anil anathematized by gold seek
ers , who considered it a nuisance. Jt
was know by various local slang names
and generally considered worthless , or
worse , because of its interference with
tlio worl : of prospectors who looked only
for the precious metals. The true char
acter of this hitherto despised ore was
first ascertained at the date named.
Samples were sent to General John W.
Gashwillcr. of San Francisco , who had
them carefully assayed there , after
which he , through his agent , made the
first lode purchase of the Black Hills.
Since that time over three thousand
tin lode locations have been made in the
Black Hills.- Thousands of assays have
been made in this country and Europe.
Tons of the ore have been sent to Now
York and to England. One solid chunk
sent to England weighed 4,800 pounds.
Many old and experienced miners from
Cornwall have examined the mines and
tested the ores. Many are working on
the claims owned by the Harney Peak
company to-day. Over a million of dollars
lars have been expended in the pur
chase and development of tin claims.
The Harnoy Peak company now owns
something over two hundred tin lode
and placer claims in the Black Hills , to
gether with water rights. Over 3100,000
has been expended for machinery.
Many claims have been patented and ap
plications for patent have been made
for over a hundred more. Not only the
annual assessment work required by the
mining law $100 per year on each
claim has been done , but on some
claims many thousands of dollars have
been expended. For three years the
work has been tentatively experimental.
Since certain English capitalists have
become interested the work has been
most thorough , and yet wholly with a
view to ascertain , if possible , the extent
of the deposits. They seem to think
that as. the Cornwall mines have boon
profitably worked since the days of the
Phenicinns over two thousand years
that it was necessary to find a deposit
which could ho profitably worked two or
three thousand years more. The deeper
their diggings and the more thorough
their investigations , the more exten
sive the deposits are discovered to bo.
They now are found in
Lawrence , Pennington andCuster , over
nn extent of country in Dakota moro
than a hundred miles north and south.
There are four organized companies of
capital. One of thorn , is known as the
American Tin company , and is mainly
composed of Now Yorkers. Its mines ,
known as tlio Nigger Hill mines , uro
situated almut sixteen miles southwest
of Spearlish , in Lawrence county , in the
northern part of thq Ilaek Hills. Prol

11 v feet wide near each wall is soinowlml

The most promising and important
ill district , PO far as can now bo do-
ermlned , is that located near liarnev's
leak. Hero the largest discoveries
uivo boon made , the most work been
lone , the greatest amount of capital
won expended. Tills region is tribu-
nry lo the Nourishing town of Hapld
Citv , on the Fremont iV Missouri Valley
ailway , to which point the Hnrnov

gauge , will penetrate llio great tin ills-
rict , winding in and out through the
auyons. and leading to the pines of

ying in supplies and taking out ore.
'rofessor Carpenter in his report pays
hat the .southern section , including the
larnoy peak , Hill City and Custor City
nines , is moro extensive than the
lorlhern , but that both northern and
onthern sections would doubtless have
jeen found ono had the sedimentary
ocks been removed by crasion.
In reference to the geology of the
Mack Hills , Prof Carpenter says :
FYom Harney peak , coming down In nuy
Irectlon , ono would Ilrst pass over the
ipturned edge of the tirchn'nn , which con-
ains veins carrying tin , gold , cop | > or nnd
liver. Next would be passed thu rocks of
hu Potsdam , which in thu northern hills
nrry deposits of gold and silver , and In the
outhern portion copper. The base of it Is
verywhero auriferous. The gold In it Is de
lved from the sauiu source ns the material
omposlng these rocks viz. , the archil-mi
irea , so that the base of the I'otadmn is in
enhty an ImmeiiMO ancient placer cousoll-
lilt wl to rock.
In geological language , the Hlnck Hills
mlift is as quaquavcrsal of singular regular
ly that Is , the sedimentary formations dip
way from the centre In all directions like
ho sides of a volcano.
Tlio Hartley peak tin district extends
ilong the easterly and northeasterly
lanks ol the granite range above rcfer-
ed to. It is about twenty miles in
ength by six miles in width. Within
his area several thousand miners'
hums or tin lode locations have been
According to the authority quoted :
The tin-stono is found in granlto veins or
likes ( true fissure veins ) in thu earlier or
chistosc urcluvun , shown upon thu map , nnd
vhlch vary in width from a few inches to
nindreds of feet. The percentugu of tin
stone in the greisen varies , but there are
nany veins carrying rock yielding from 2 to
per cent. That this is by no means n small
lercentage may lie seen by the following :
In Alt en berg , in Saxony , the yield is from
/t to 1 percent. In Cornwall , as shown by
ho government statistics , the yield of black
.In for the whole country Is less than 2 per
. cut. In the 1'ulburro district in Cornwall ,
ho average of nil the ore crushed m live
years was . ! > ' . > of 1 pcr.cent. Yet these mines
, 'icldcd a fair prollt.
The tin mines of Cornwall have been
worked for hundreds of years. Tlio
niners now go down under the sea at a
listanco of three thousand feet from tlio
surface. Tlio expense of lifting ore and
lumping water from sueh a depth must
> e enormous , even with till the aids of
nodern machinery. And yet when the
ore is extracted llio per centum of tin
stone would seem to bo very small less
; han 12 per centum. The tin ore , cassi-
Lerito , of the Black Hills is near the
surface on lofty and rugged mountains.
The per centum of metallic tin lias been
the astonishment of Cornwall miners.
On this point Prof. Carpenter says that
lie has made at the school of mines many
assays of Dakota tin ore , such as scalings
taken across veins , averages of dumjis ,
sample lots of ore , etc. , and has but in
ono instance found less than 1 per cent ,
while the average of the ore essayed ,
after excluding the evidently picked
samples , which ran 80 , 40 , and ovci CO
per cent , is about ! { per cent black tin ,
an average far exceeding that of Corn
wall , which is , by government reports ,
1.03 per cent , while the yield of the
Zwilter , in X.inwald , according to
Bruno Korlis about 5 per cent tin.
The English stockholders , as Lord
Thurlow intimates , are going slowly
but safely. With ample experience and
abundant meant * , they yet take nothing
for granted. They have had the ablest
experts in the world-to make close , per
sonal surveys of the Black Hills tin dis
trict. They have employed old miners
to do their development work. They
have expended largo amounts to ascer
tain both the guantity und quality of the
ere , expense of mining , reduction ,
freight , etc. After all this it is quite
evident that they have slowly reached
the conclusion , as Lord Thurlow says ,
that Cornwall's long monopoly of twelve
hundred years is near its end.
If this is so , our whole country , and
the world , in fact , is to be congratu
lated. Tlio manufacturing of metallic
tin into sheets nnd plates must prove a
vast business requiring skilled labor of
thousands of men.
