JudKO Keysor yesterday morning granted
a writ of mandamus , directing the city au
thorities to comply with the law and publish
the description of the voting districts In two
newspapers of general circulation In the
city of Omaha.
The case came up on the application of
Victor Iloaewatcr for a writ compelling the
city clerk , Ilcccher Hlgby , and the city of
Omaha , to publish thu description of bound
aries as required by the general flection
laws. The application was made after the
city council , acting under the advice of the
city attorney , had passed a resolution di
recting the city clerk to publish simply the
location of the various voting booths and
the times of registration , omitting entirely
the description of the boundaries of the elec
tion dlstrlctd. It was alleged by the relater
that the law requiring the description re
ferred to to be printed In two newspapers
wns mandatory and that the city authorities
had nn discretion In the matter ,
The city attorney appeared for the city
nnd took the ground that the expense was
r.o gie.it that the general fund could not
ntand the drain and that on this account
thu city authorities could suspend a part
of the law and comply with the remainder.
He also demurred to the petition , alleging
that II did not form a caist : > of action , be-
rauHo It did not show that the relater had
made a demand upon the city authorities to
do their duty and they had refused , and
also that It was brought against the city
cloilc. whereas the law did not make It
the duty of the clerk-to publish the notice
Arguments were made on the case Mon
day and In paeolng on the case yes

the statute being mandatory , that the
plain Intent was to Inform the voters
as to the boundaries of the election
district that they might know where to
register themselves and guard against fraud
on the part of other voters. The court
criticised the city authorities severely for
presuming to override the law and ad
ministered a polite castlgatlon to the city
attorney for advising the council to violate
the law , when It was evident that the law-
was mandatory on It face. Ho held that
the voters had a right to know nil there
wan lo bo known with reference to election
matters and the effect of the action of the
city authorities would be to befog the minds
of even the Intelligent voters who would
have no meanof knowing whether the dis
trict boundaries had been changed or not
unless the description was published. The
court also held that It was not necessary
for the petition to show a demand that the
authorities comply with the law and a re
fusal on their part to do to. He held that
the law was mandatory and the only thing
that remained was for the proper authorities
to ECO that It was enforced. The demurrer
as to City Clerk Illgby was sustained , but n
writ was ordered to Issue , directing the
city authorities to select two newspapers
nnd publlch the description as required by
law. The court did not designate the par
ticular officers upon whom the writ should
bo served , but stated tlmt the maybr and
council constituted the city government and
It devolves upon them to see that the writ
Is compiled with.
Judge Kcysor .old ho would not discusser
or pass upon the effect upon the election of
the failure of the nuthorltles to publish the
description on the two days already past.

John Lewis of the republican county cen
tral committee came so near to catching
two presumed burglars Monday night that
his hair stands on end every time he thinks
Lewis was wending his way out to his
homo at Thirty-sixth and Jackson streets
last nluht at JO o'clock , and nearly fell over
two flgun-a that were lying beneath one
of the windows of his house. These two
figures , apparently as much surprised as
Luwts , suddenly assumed life. They arose
Into the forms of men nnd flew. Lewis
Hev. ' , too , and ho How after them , when ono
of the men turned and flred a shot. Lewis
telephoned a report of the occurrence to the
pollco and then went home. A scientific
Investigation of the case , however , 1ms de
veloped that Lewis may not have run Into
a couple of burglars.
Next to L/wls' house Is another house , and
opposite the window beneath which ho
fitumblcd over the men Is another window.
Thlb latter window furnishes light for a
bathroom In the other house. The other
house Is well occupied , and among the real-
dents are a number of young women.
Last night at 10 o'clock , the same time
that Lewis arrived at his home , one of these
young women wns In the bath room. The
two "burBlnrs" were opposite the window
of the bath room , so Intently Interested
that they were not apprised of Lewis' pres
ence until ho almost stumbled over them.

Chicago-Omaha line yesterday morning said :
"If 1 can only nccurc all the business that
has been promised me In the event of Me-
Klnley's election , I'll keep our operating
department on the hustle to supply cars.
Thotish most of the Jobbers are short on
stock , they say that they will not have any
Koods ahlprcd to them until after election.
Transmlssourl lines are doing n big busi
ness hustling along the wheat and corn to
ward the east. None of the Nebraska roads
Imvo any cars to spare , yet none of them arc
tied up on account of nny car famine. These
roads , too , expect. nn Increased business
Immediately after election , as the stocks
of the country merchants arc reported to
bo very short.
John llarron , traveling freight agent for
the Union Pacific , was in town for awhllo
Monday. He travels between this city
and Cheyenne , and has n good opportunity
to learn of the freight situation In this
state. Ho said that It had been a long
tlmo slnco It had been as good as It wan
noxv. More train crews ore being employed
on nil the Nebraska divisions than for many
a day , and both wheat and com arc being
moved nlong In largo quantities. Ho says
the fanners all nlong the line are feeling
In the best of spirits , and many of them arc
already beginning to dispose of mortgages
that have caused them bad dreams for
several yctrs past.
The approach of election day has Its effect
on the passenger , as well OB on the freight
department of railroads. General Agent
llltchto of the Northwestern , who has just
returned from n trip through Kansas , says :
"Yes , Indeed , wo ore going to have plenty
of merchandise to haul after electiones
pecially If MeKlnley Is elected. That Is
what all the jobbers say. You would ho
surprised It you knew how completely such
an event as an election could bring rail
road matters to n standstill. Not only are
the merchants holding off from replenishing
tliolr stocks , but people nrc actually keeping
from traveling becnuso It Is so close to elec
tion. The passenger suffers as much as
the freight department. Every one wants
to lie at home this year to vote , and for
tlmt reason scarcely any ono will travel.
They are not even taking short trips for
fear something might happen to prevent
their return homo In tlmo to vote. "

Since the announcement that John A.
Munroe. freight trafllc manager of the Union
Pacific , would decline the appointment to
the board of administration of the Western
Traffic association , railway men In Omaha
have been busy conjecturing as to the names
that will now be considered. One of those
that Is generally believed to stand near
the top of the list Is that of Peter P.
Shelby , the first general freight agent of.
the Union Pacific , And Inter connected with
the Great Northern. There la no doubt
about Mr. Shelby's famlllalty with western
traffic affairs. He has been n close student
of freight matters In.thla . part of Uic country
ever ulnce the Union Pacific ran Its first
train. Ho Is grently respected and admired
among railway men generally , and especi
ally among those who knew him while he
was Btnllonoil In Omaha. Ho has not been
connected with active railroad work for the
past few years , hut has been spending his
tlmo In foreign travel. He was In the city
last \\oolc , and went from hero to Idaho.
The new traffic association Is finding It
difficult to get the men It wants because
most of them are young men filling high
positions , which they do not feel like re
signing for an office that may last only
twenty-six months. Mr. Shelby Is not so
handicapped , and would enter on his work
with an experience that few freight men
In the wept possess. It Is known that the
association Is considering his name , and
many freight men In Omaha feel certain
that ho will be the man selected for the
office that was declined by Mr. Munroe.
As. yet , C. L. Wellington , general traffic
manager of the Wisconsin Central , Is the
only one ofthe four chosen as members
of the board of administration that has
accepted. His road Is In the hands of
receivers , nud a reorganization Is expected
at an early date. Concerning the appoint
ment of General Freight Agent Parker of
the Missouri Pacific , It Is the common
opinion among railway men that he will
accept. Information about town at least late
to that effect.

following resolution , with the request that
they BCO to Its strict enforcement :
"Resolved , That all one-Way tickets sold

Chairman Caldwell of the Western Pas

the following resolution will take the place
of all other legislation on the subject :
"Resolved , That hereafter whenever this

that Ironclad dccscrlptlon of ticket or ex
change orders shall bo used , It shall bo
understood and announced that such tickets
shall bo executed for return passage at

tinctly provides otherwise. "
The Intent of this resolution la to posi

destination , from making such execution or
receiving a ticket for the purpcuo of for
warding It to agent at destination for eucli
execution , and the agent at destination Is
prohibited from receiving n ticket by mall

Sheldon Cnxr I.lkrly ( o Up NrCtlfil On
Jamra Sheldon , charged with adultery with
Minnie Moore , by his wife , Nellie Sheldon
Is stilt In jail. Yesterday Captain Hare licit
a conversation with Sheldon In which the
latter showed considerable anxiety to proven
having the cnst- carried to the district court
Ho was much surprised to learn from the
pollco that If prosecuted by his wife to the
limit of the Uw ho was llablo to A sentence
of n year In the penitentiary , or to a fine o
$200. At the preliminary hearing given
Sheldon In the pollco court ho waived ex
amination and was bound over to the higher
court by Judge Gordon. It Is probnblo , how
ever , that the ease will never reach the dis
trict court on account of the tender feelIng -
Ing * which the wife has for her recreant hus
band nnd the two will settle their differences
nnd the prosecution bo dropped.
Mrs. Sheldon stated to the pnlloo that the
Moore woman has flcured In three other
cases of a similar nature to the present ono
nnd that she was once n married woman
She originally liven In Utlca. N. Y. , but hni
lived for some time previous to coming west
In lliiffnlo. Mrs. Sheldon also gave Informa
tion to the pollco which led to n visit to tin
house at 3S4I Hamilton street , nnd slit
Identified some sllverwnrc nnd numerous
other articles taken from her house at > Huf-
fnlo which , together wHh the library of Mr
Shclton , wns removed to the station.
Late last evening Mrs. Shelton held A con
sultation with her husband nnd ho agreed to
resume their domestic relations and quit the
Moore woman , provided his wife would have
the complaint under which ho Is held with
drawn. This wns pnrtly ngrced upon by
Mrs. Sheldon and she Informed Captain Hnzo
that she would gla'ly pny Ml s Moore's trntis-
portatlon out of the city provided she might
ivsutne her wifely relations with her hus
Miss Moore , when spoken to on the sub
Ject , manifested an eagerness to lcovo , the
city ns soon as possible and her love for
Sheldon did not appear to bo of such n
depth tlmt she cnred to place her liberty It
Jeopardy by n trial. In cnso n Bottlcmen
Is made between Sheldon and his wlfo the
couple say they will not return to lluflnli
to llvo , but will soil their property there am
heck a new scene for domestic felicity far
away In the western country.
