What Mr. Ooopor , of Lincoln , Haa
Been Trying to Find Out.
Convinces the Judge That It Is a
Query llo Can Answer , Not
Just Now Railroad Equal
LINCOLN hJURKiu or ran OMi.rn. Bw , )
This morning the Hon. S. M. Chapman en
tered his court loaded for game. In the big
municipal fight , which has boon Uisquiotinfr
the spirits ot the local politicians over since
the special election of April ' "J , TUB UKE has
already stated W. S. Hamilton cleverly
ousted ff. J. Cooper from his sent in the city
council , ( Fourth ward ) . Judge Chapman
board testimony and speeches pro nnd con
Jn the mandamus suit , which followed the
refusal of the city council to confer a cortlll-
cato of election upon Mr. Cooper. The sub
ject innttnr has boon Judicially cogitated
during the week , and the result was laid
open this morning. Judge Chapman says
that the mamlumus proceeding is something
that should bo carefully considered before a
writ Is issued the court should bo satisfied
that there is right In the relater ; that the
writ will give him proper relief and at tbo
aiiia time not compromise the rights of
third partips.
In the case at bar W. J. ' Cooper sought to
compel tbo respondents , the city council of
Lincoln , to give to him a cortlttcato of elec
tion to the council from the Fourth ward.
The evidence adduced showed that that
Xlobort 13. Graham wus contemplating be
coming a candidate for the oOlce of mayor of
Lincoln ut the general city election , on April
2. Thuro was an anticipation that ho would
resign his place us councilman from the
Fourth ward , and on this anticipation the re
publican electors of the Fourth ward placed
lu > relater In nomination to fill the expected
racanoy. There was a meeting of the city
council on Auril 1 , when Graham tendered
his resignation. A oortlon pf the council ob
jected to its acceptance , and tbo question
was referred to the council's standing com
mittee on elections. Thus Graham continued
to lioltl his oftlco ho had not resigned , his
roftUinutlou had not been accepted , and ho
continued to perform tha duties of his , for the evidence showed him to havu
been present ut the meeting of the council on
the Oth of April , tuklne part in the proceed
ings , when the vote cost at the election of
" April a was canvassed , nnd with the oxcoii-
tlou of the councilman for the short term
from the Fourth ward ( Cooper having been
elected to that ofllco Tallowing upon bis re
publican nomination ) the parsons securing
the majority of the votes for the oftlces to bo
llllod nt the election were declared duly
elected. Tbo tellers In charge of the can-
vans , indeed , had counted and reported the
number of votes cast for the relater , Cooper ,
but no further action wus taken by the
board of canvassers. They seemed , indeed ,
to Imvo considered that there wus no vacancy
of the ofllco to which the relater had been
elected. The meeting was followed by n
mooting on April 8 , when the committee ,
who had In charge the tendered resignation
of Graham ( who , in the meantime ,
tad been elected mayor of Liu-
coin ) reported the subject back to
the council. The resignation of Graham was
then accepted , und a special election to fill
the vancy of councilman for the short term
in the Fourth ward , was fixed for the 23d of
April. On that day the people had before
them us contestant ! W. J. Cooper and \V. 8.
Hamilton , the latter receiving a large num
ber of the votes cast , and be being sub&o-
nuuntly declared by the city council duly
elected. Hamilton qualified and Is now per
forming the duties and enjoying the rights ,
privileges and emoluments of the omco. The
Judge said tlioso were the facts with which
ho had to deal , and out of them arose a ma-
tcrial issue between the relater , the respond
ents und a third party , \V. S. Hamilton. TUo
question was thlt ; Did Gruham'i resigna
tion became operative on April 1 or April HI
If It came Into ofTcct on April S , then there
was no vncnncy in the ofllco ho filled nt the
election of April 3 , If the resignation by its
acceptance dated from April 8 , then the
relater would have no right to bo
declared elected nt the election occur
ring , or to have a certificate ) of election do-
llvercd to him , und , in addition to this , there
is the serious question , which becomes an
issue between the relater and W. S. Hamil
ton. as to whether the Lincoln city council
hud authority to order the special election of
April 'J2. Ho had it before him in evidence
that there Is pending iu the court a proceed
ing In the nature of a quo warrunto , in
which the relater seeks to have Hamilton
ousted from his omco as councilman and that
ofllco vested in him. The weight of authoriy
in the country Is in iavor in cases like this of
quo warranto proceedings rather than man
damus. Under the quo warranto action , the
rights of the relater and of his adversary
can bo fully settled , whereas if a writ \vero
now issued it would only compel the re
spondents to perform the ministerial duty of
giving a certificate of election to the relater ,
to which the court was not quite clear that
ho is entitled. Tha substantial richt of Ham
ilton , If any ho had. would not bo tested , but
these rights might bo compromised , provided
that UDOII the trial of the quo-warrauto It
should bo found that ho is entitled to the
seat. Further , the certificate of election is
not necessary to the rolutor , to maintain his
action * of quo-warranto ; and in well con
sidered cases It has been held when , in
doubtful cases , a certificate han boon Issued ,
mandamus will not llo to compel the Issuance
of a second certificate , especially when such
Issuance would merely shift the burden of
proof , or would render substantial aid or
final relief. The Judge referred to Magee
vs Supervisors , 10 Gal. , 37(5 ( ; Sherburn vs
Horn , 45 Mich. , 160 , and People vs Cove , 5
111. , 100 , and said that in his opinion the case
at bar made a stranger case for the refusal
of the writ of mandamus than the cases
cited. In this case an action by quo-war
ranto would afford n speedy and complete
relief to the relater , and thorn would bo no
prejudice to the third party. The court had
not iu this matter doomed it necessary finally
to dcoldo. As to the legality of the elections
of April 3 and April 23 , which matter would
bo best tested at the hearing on the quo-
warranto. Ho considered It best for the In
terest of nil concerned to leave , until tbon ,
tha parties In their present status ; and for
all these reasons the writ of mandamus was
refused with costs.
Hallronil Initialization.
Tbo board of equalization , with the excep
tion of the governor , is again at homo. It is
learned that the Klkborn system of roads
was completely rounded up during the week.
Every mile of road , 1,018 In number , was
traversed and the property carefully listed.
Ono of the members of the board informed
TUB Uiu representative to-day that "lots of
property was discovered" that the authori
ties of the road hud failed to civo In. This ,
however , will bo considered when the assess
ments are made. "Tho road will make noth
ing by Its attempt to secret its properly , "
pointedly said the member. The board will
continue its ride and work on next Thurs
day. It is understood that the property of
the Chicago , Kansas & Nebraska railroad
company will next bo traversrd and In-
si > cctcd. The sentiment Is strong hero that
the action of the board in seeking to Inspect
tbo railroad property of the state Is a wise
ono. _ _ _ _ _

BEATIUCB. Neb. , May 11. [ Special to THE
BUB. ] Beatrice bidding for the third place
among Nebraska's ' busy and enterprising
cities , can now say without boasting that'we
have the llnest hotel in the state outside of
Omalra , and in point of furnishings , and
architectural beauty the peer of any. Bril
liantly illuminated last night , ' -The Pad
dock" presented a sceuoof dazzling splendor ,
such as has rarely been witnessed in the
west , for beauty nnd chivalry had gathered
there. Fully a thousand sparkling
faces were to bo scon "hero nnd
there and everywhere , " In repousse
to the generous Invitation of Mr.
Criloy , throutrh the Traveling Men's
club , to attend the jjrntidjoperilng. They gave
animation to the decorations within , wnich
were as beautiful as cultured tastes could
conceive , and the spirit manifest on every
hand was that of honor to tbo builder and
the enterprising genius of the city that the
new four-story hotel does so much credit.
The dedication of "The Paddock" was the
great sooial event of the history of Beatrice ,
nnd her citizens seemed to appreciate tbo
fact. They vied with each other in making
the stranger feel .that ho was one of
them. Tlio roccution was In keeping with
tlio true spirit of hospitality. It was all that
would bo asked by. the throng tlmt gath
ered from the four quarters of the
union. No act of kindly interest or
gentility wus forgotten.
Words would fall to picture the beauty of
the ( lorul decorations. .Festoons of flowers
hung from the ceilings und walls. Great
wreaths and potted plants transformed c. very
room from ollice to ordinary , into bowcra of
beauty. Colors were blended with inut < ) h-
less taste. Indeed , they were in such per
fect keeping that contrasts gave back
answering smiles. There was no dashing ,
and It need only be said ; that all within WAS
symmetrically beautiful. This , in a word , U
all that u pen-picture can do in description.
The banquet and ball ot the Traveling
Men's club , which was lirojcotod by tha pro
prietors of tlio hotel , to- fittingly celebrate
its formal opening , was also perfect in its
way , The banquet } vns , served in the ele
gantly furnished dtnlrig' rooms and ordina
ries. No sound came back from the couples
us they cume tq , and went from , the tables
laden with every dellcuoy of the season. The
silk-velvet carpets did not Intend it should
be so. Cheery Voices alone gave
evidence of confusion. Hut to
linger here is n to prolong a
story that every guest , will bear TUB Bun out
in saying : "Therehas hoen nothinglika itiu
.all Nebraska the past year. "
The ball wax given iu tha opera house , a
portion of tha magnificent Paddock that will
bo formally dedicated to the drama some
time during the montu of next September ,
and it Is presumable that the dedication will

of the elegant unit commodious ' 'teuiplo of the
drama" Beatrice will have when the interior
is HnUhod ,
But , the opening of "Tho Paddock Is now
a part of the history of Beatrice , and it
means vastly more than what appears on the
surface. The city has a hotel commensurate
with every need. It is not only a credit to
the city , but to the whole state. It is
beyond to-day and bid * for a progressive
future. Senator Paddock must have hod
faith iu the possibilities when ho ventured

takes a just degree of pride. H la not ouly a

The order of the evening was conventional
iu every sunsa. There Is nothing paradoxi
cal in this. The ball , the banquet and the
general social pleasures of the evening would
have been lacking- without the customary Mr. C. O. Bates welcomed the guests
in u few well chosen words. Ho was folicl-
tous in his remarks to the traveling men and
provoked applause in contrasting their re
sponsibilities. Mr. A. J. Conleo , president
of the Traveling Men's duo , addressed the
gathering in behalf of the fraternity he rep-
reaonts. Colonel Ashby also responded "In
favor of the Paddock , " nnd was roundly ap
plauded in his concluding sentence : "In the
name of the Traveling Men's Social club , of
Beatrice , I thank you for your attendance

past ten days about ten additional members
of the club have boon secured. The club
now numbers about fifty members , ull resi

ing an active part in all matters of public
improvements and importance.
A short time ago Mr. E. 1C. Croloy , pro
prietor of the Paddock hotel , tendered the
free use of the Paddock to the Traveling

enthusiastically accepted and May IU set as

County bupcrintoudont Bruuer yesterday
appointed two women to fill vacancies in thQ
bchool board of district No. 20 , known aa
Sumner Hill. Their names are Mrs. Au
gusta Lorcnzon and Mrs. Margarotta Hun
ter. He took thum for the reason that none
of tbo district could bo induced to servo.
Tlio vacancies occurred last winter , when
death removed the moderator and treasurer.
Since then the district has boon without a
local government , but school kapt Just tha
same although tlio tcnchur has not been able
to draw a pay. The term will soon close ,

Many mountain streams abound in
trout. The higher up ono goes the
moro fish there seem to bo , they mount
ing falls of several foot high in their
ambitious progress toward the source of
the water's supply. The salmon , the
cousin of the trout , is famous for its
method of going up stream ; it darts ut
falls ton or twelve feet high , leaps into
the air , and rushes up the falling water
in a marvelous manner. So dotormino'd
are the salmon to attain the high and
safe waters that in some localities nets
are placed honoath the falls , into which
the llsh tumble in their repeated at
tempts to clear the hill of water. Other
than human hunters , however , profit
by these scrambles up hill. Travelers
report that on the banks of the upper
St. John river , in Canada , there was
once a rock in which u largo circular
well , or pol-holo , had been worn by the
action of tlio water. At the salmon
season this rock proved a favorite re
sort for boars ; and for a good reason.
Having an especial taste for salmon ,
the boars would watch nt the pot-hole ,
and as the Hulinon , dashing up tlio fall ,
were frequently thrown over into it ,
the bears would fish thorn out .without
diflieulty. .
