T. * , Neb. , March .10. ( Special to THE
Bnn.J The supreme court today hnnded
down n number of Important decisions.
Among thorn \vns the old cnso of H. A. Mer
rill n nlnst Adam Snyder , treasurer of
Douglas county. Although this case wns
practically sotticd * omo tlmo npo the princi
ple ot law Involved has no\-or until today
been laid down by the court and It Is a case
which is of no httlo Importance , not only to
the people of Douglas county , but of every
county In the state. On Jnnuary 5 , 18SO , 11.
A. Merrill purchased nt n private tax sale
lota r. nnd 0 , In block 8 , Cnpltol Hill , paying
therefor the sum of S 0 34 , the amount of de
linquent tnxos und taking a certificate of tax
sale from the tiensurcr. Ho afterwards paid ,
nt different times , delinquent , tuxes on tbo
lota until the whole naiount ho had paid wns
on January 5 , Ib'.H , fJi ! .7U. On that
onto , however , the owner of the lots paid to
the county treasurer the sum of $373. iO nnd
received u redemption certificate. , rrff3"
urer Snvdor then held the manor pnld him
Ijy both Merrill and the owner of the lots.
Morrlll brought nn action to compel Snyder
to repay ttio money paid by him with Interest.
fjnydcr refused , urging In his answer that
the owner of the lots had commenced on
notion to havu the taxes , or nt least n part of
them , declared Illegal nnd void , nnd tnnt
pending the suit , It wns his duty to retain
the monoy. Merrill demurred to the iinswor
nnd IMS cuso was submitted to the tuprcmo
i court on tbo pleadings on March 24 , 1801 ,
nnd the court , two dnvs later , sustained the
demurrer nnd Issued n writ of mandamus
commanding Treasurer Snj'dor to repay the
rannoy to Merrill. -
In the opinion handed down today Chlof
i I Justice Maxwell sums up the cnsons follows :
"Tho whoio theory of the tux system of this
Btnto Is that taxes shall bo equally Imposed
upon nil taxaolo property , and that such
tnxcs shall bo collected and paid. The de
sign of the law Is to protect the owner of the
laud against Inequitable burden ns far n Is
consistent with the requirement that ho dis
charge the burden placed thereon. If ho
falls to pay upon his real estate It may bo
sold for Btich taxes and may bo redeemed nt
n'nv tlrao within two years thereafter. The
law also protects the purchaser at tax sale
nnd provides that ho shall nt least bo repaid
his money ivlth u certain amount of Interest ,
If there was no authority to levy the taxes in
question then It would bo the duty of the
county to reimburse the tax purchaser the
amount paid by him. "
Alluding the -Vow Knllnt
JVnotlier Important taso decided today was
the case of Ulchnrd H. Pearl and others
against tbo state of Nebraska ox rcl John H.
Ilucrlng. It is a case from Hamilton county ,
proulni : out of the o derations of the now
ballot law. nnd Is importnnt. Hamilton
county Is divided into three commissioner dis
tricts. The Third commissioner district in
cludes within Its boundaries n part of tbo
Third ward of the city of Aurora , which city
isjalso divided ir.tothrco wards. Prior to the
last general election the tbroo commissioner
, districts hud been subdivided for election
purposes in such a manner as to leave a frac
tional portion attached tn n voting district
oulsido of llio Third commissioner district.
No provision was made for taking the votes
Qf tto doctors residing In this frac
tional portion' ; John H. Huorlng nnd
Oscar Shankland were opposing candidates
for the ofllco of county commissioner of tbo
Third district. Huerlng received i-'oO votes ,
whllo Shankland received 255. But , In addi
tion to the votes counted for tihanklnnd , flvo
votes were cast for him In this fractional
portion ot tbo Third ward of the city of
Aurora , which had boon loft out in tbo cold
ns it wero. Tbo county commissioners , sit
ting ns a canvassing boaul , counted thesa
live vote ? for Shankland and gave him the
certificate. Huorlng applied to the district
rourt nnd received a peremptory writ ol
mandamus toqulring the county clerk to
cancel the certificate of election already
given to Snankland and compelling the can
vassing board to rccanvass the votes nnd declare -
clare Hucrlng elected to tbo ofllco. Tbo supreme
premo court today reversed the decision
of the district court. In the opinion ,
written by Judge Post , the principle Is
established that it Is not within the powci
of a board of county commissioners to dis
franchise lotrul votcis by subdividing n
county forclootion purposes In such a man
ner ns to leave thorn without nn opportunity
to participate in tbo election ol county

Verdict of the Coroner's Jury in the Qaf-
ford-Moonoy Tragedy.
Peculiar Circumstances In Connection With
the Double Crimp No Cnnia An-
il nnd .So Ono ClmrRCil
AUtli the Deed.
The Jury In the Unfford-Moonoy Inquest ,
after honrlng the testimony of nil the Inmates
of the King honso where the cnmo was com-
mlltod , cnmo to tno conclusion that a double
murder hnd boon committed , cither for the
purpose of robbery or a nrosultof Jealousy
'by some pnrty or parties unknown
nnd rondoroct a vordlct accordingly. The
ground * of their belief , ns brought out In
tbo testimony , are brlolly as follows !
I1 Dora were no powder marks on CJafTord's
face , nnd n shot llrod at short ranRO would
always leave such marks-
The bed clothes were undUlurhod nnd the
shot had boon llrcd whllo the victim wns
ylng on the sldo , whoroa ? If lie had com
mitted sulcltlo ho would probably huvo sat
up to illschurgo the pistol.
The money which ho had pinned In his
night shirt was found under n bed
in un adjoining room with ono bill so
placed In the bond of bis elbow that It must
have dropped there nftor the shot wad llrcd.
The ivlndows of the adjoining room had
been opened and nil the gas had been turned
off which are unlikely preparations to bo
made by n man almost stupollcd with drink.
There-was Rood cause for suspicion that
the liquor which the young man had been
drinking had been drugged.
The shots were llrcd with deadly accuracy
of aim nnd If the acmd man tired thorn bo
must have done so In the dark.
Too father of the murdered young man
uporfhearing the vordlut unnounrcd that ho
proposed to luavo no stone unturned to trace
and punish the murderer of his son.
Concluding the Inquiry.
, Mercy Hurt , a hnndsonio young follow 23
years of ago , was tlrst uutjon tbostund | yester
day morning. Ho tesltllcd that ho had first
known the girl Mabel as Mabol Daniels at
the house kept by Blrdlu Mnnn ; had known
Cecil Gray smro she wai 10 years old ; had
frequently heard of Gaftord and bad read a
letter to the dead girl written by him ; but
was not at tbo house the night of the tragedy.
All the Inmates were put on the stand and
the story of the night , as related by Cecil
Gray , was told ever nnd over , but without
throwing nny now light on tbo case. All tes
tified that the house , and particularly tbo
victim , hnd grown tired of UntTord , but nouo
of them had hoard any shot or unusual dis
turbance on the night of the murder.
The colored housekeeper , Alice , gave an
outllno of the dally routine at the house and
staled that the folding doors had boon out of
order for n loner time , so tnat entrance could
bo had if the doors were locked. She also
testified that she bad not taken any liquor to
the room on Saturday night and thai Cecil
was wrong In her statement to the contrary.
She had not been on the third lluor during
the cntlro nfternooa.
Tilllc Thompson , the night chambermaid ,
hod bucn In the fatal room batwoen 8 and 0
o'clock Saturday night ; had also boon in
Cecil Gray's room : saw the dead pair In bed
when they were In good humor. She told
the story of the finding of the monoy.
The colored porter , George Williams , was
called but could tell nothing of noto.
