Ak-Sar-Bcn who will take part In the Ak-
Sar-Ben parade of next Thursday evening
and the opening of the court ball of Friday
evening , was the most successful yet held.
The 150 gaily attired knights were drilled
by an army officer from Fort Crook In the
various movements that they will perform on
the night of the great ball.

artistic features of Ak-Sar-Bcn week. Next
Friday at .1 o'clock there will be a meet
ing of the twenty-five young knights who arc

It was the trial of a member of ono of Nor
folk's foremost families , relates the Wash
ington Post. The defendant was a woman
and was charged with forgery and complicity
In , pension fraud. As the proceedings drew
to a close all the city crowded Into the court
room. Residents from Ghent and loafers
from the wharves sat together on one bench ,
and the bailiff , not to lc c so good a chance ,
manifested his authority by calling out "or
der , " and himself making more noise than
all the people In the court.
The last witness was n negress , portly and
very black. Her voleo was singularly mel
low and sweet. The government was ques-
ilonlng her about the death of her husband ,
and her testimony was directly against the
defendant. The court room was consequently
very quiet and still.
"You say your husband died In Norfolk ? "
snarled the district attorney.
"You were with him ? "
"Yessah. Right dere with him when ho
"Toll us about It. "
"I "member , sah , he got up through the
night. Ho said ho was too wa'm down dere
with mo and de llttlo child. TB too wn'm , '
ho said. 'I'll go to do wliiduh and lie down
here. ' He gen'ally got up at nights , anyhow ,
when ho was too wa'm.

With two tailors In the basement removing
traces of table .d'hote ' and ber stains , creas
ing trousers and replacing buttons , It Is not
surprising that the patrolmen of the Kast
Twenty-second street station shine In the
sight of their fellow men. says the N"w Vork
"They are all Beau Brunimcls every man
of them , " Captain Smith exclaimed admir
ingly , as the squad filed out of the station
house nt 11 o'clock last evening. "That lallot
shop did the business , and It's an idea ot
mine. There Is no reason now for a missing
button , oven if a man U not marrlpd. This
station doesn't fcnr complalnla irom hoa I-
quarters. Wo nrn too tidy. "
Captain Smith's great Idea -grew out ol
Chief McCullagh's order requesting all pa-
trolmpii to spruce up a hit. The spectacle of
a fat policeman waddling about with his
waistcoat unbutlo'icd like 11 dried codfish was
obnoxious to the chief.
There ure 100 men In Captain Smith's com
mand , all of whom have ace at to the tailor
shop In Iho bisoment. Two tailors serve as
valets to this 100 , standing watch night and
day. They do no outside work , and thu ex
pense Is borne by the patrolmen , who each
contribute $1 a month for the support of th ?
shop. The station I * also equipped with u
bootblack , who polishes cxcltmlvely for Cap
tain Smith and his nun.
Before the squad leaves the house the tailor
on watch goes down the line like a Pullman
car porter with bis whisk broom In hand ,
The bootblack scans the row of broad , Hat
feet of Ills patrons , and Captain Smith In
spects his men with the air ot ono who knows
thu 'proper tiling In dress. No wonder thu
East Twenty-second street station Is held up
as a model for the entire force.

LINCOLN , Sept. 17. ( Special. ) There was
no regular program at the reunion grounds
t- > Jay and a great many of the camper *
spent the forenoon making preparations to
leave for home. There had been eomo talk
of a sham battle , but It was abandoned. The
i crowd of the visitors on the grounds was
as largo as yesterday and for the most part
the people fuinlthed their own entertainment.
There were a number of meetings of state
associations during the forenoon. In the
afternoon the grounds were practically
deserted , the people having all come Into
thu city to witness the parade and celebration
of Lincoln day. The parade In the city wad
a spleindld ono and was viewed by an Im
mense crowd. Heslde the reunion people and
the residents of the city a largo number oH
popolc came In from the surrounding towns
to witness this special feature of reunion
week. The parade consisted ot the state.

bands and a large number of floats and deco
rated turnouts , fitted up by the business

generally conceded that the celebration of

about the only part of the /program / of re
union wcok that was strictly carried out.

YORK , Nob. . Sept. 17. ( Special Telegram. )
Last -night the Methodist confcrcuco hehl
n public meeting In tbo Interests of superan
nuated preachers anil their families. The
mooting was largely attended. Ir. Hnlstcad
of St. Paul's Methodist church. Lincoln ,
gave the principal nddrcpo of the evening.
Ho told of the provision which the ministry
of the Methodist church makes for Its mem
bers who have become old and enfeebled In
the service. Many of these superannuates
have spent from twenty to forty years In the
pulpit , and , Inasmuch as they have had no
opportunity for providing for their own ma
terial welfare other than by means of their
ministerial profession , they often find them
selves , when grown old , dependent upon the
generosity of tholr preacher hrethren for
support. There Is a very practical fraternal
spirit thus shown by the Methodist ministry
which Is most commendable. At present
there arc seventeen superannuated prcachere
In the Nebraska conference. Two have died
In the last year , Z. B. Twoman and Alford
IJrlghani. The profits of the Methodist Uook
Concern form one of the sources whereby the
superannuate fund Is kept replenished. The
apportionment from the concern for this con
ference this year amounts to $989. The
charter fund Increased the total to $1,011.
PREACHERS AS PRODUCERS.
The doctor spoke on the past work of these
"worn-out" preachers and demonstrated
tholr productiveness ns viewed In the moral
and spirited souse. The man who produces
Is not a pauper , no matter how slender his
i purse. Ho may not produce silver or gold
1or wheat ; the product of his labor may not
be tangible as the world's goods , but so long
as ho Is of some effect In the world , whether
material or spiritual , ho Is a producer. The
preacher Is a producer of Inestimable value
to the world at largo. The men who have
become Incapacitated through years of serv
ice In the ministry and who arc compelled
to relinquish their work Into other hands
may bo producers no longer , but who can
say they are paupers ? Their past efforts eu-
tltlo them to all the world's goods they arc
likely to receive.
In addition to Dr. Halstead's excellent ad
dress a sort of ministerial campllre was held.
A number of superannuated pastors were
present and told of tholr past experiences.
Several of the younger members of the coa-
Jorenco made short talks In which they
cxDTos'od their desire to take up the work
that had been laid down by their elders In
a manner worthy of their predecessors. A
number of coed old hymns were sung.
The devotional services this morning wore
In the hands nf. Rev. Fred A. Stuff of Lln-
raln. The conference session opened at 0

the Society of the Homo tor the Friendless ,
The suit was brought to compel the society

vested rights therein which the legislature
could not sot aside. The decision In full
Is as follows :
This ciiuso came on for hearing before

sion of the Home for the Friendless it ml
of the books , papers and other property at
tached thereto , nml belonging to the state
From the evidence adduced at the hour-
Ing upon the Issues joined it appears that
on or about the year 1S76 the Society for
the Homo of the Frlomllos * , then n private
organization by the cbnrltablo women of
the ptivto of Nebraska , for the bencvoleni
purpose of aiding Its tleatltuto women am
children , organized under the laws of the
Btate of Nebraska , and thereby became a
body corporate , and haw so continued to
exist plnco wild time with corporate csi-
paclty to take and hold property anil to
conduct n place of refuge for the deserving
dcntliutc women and children of tbo state.
That by aiitlon of the legislature approver
February 2S , 1SS1 , there vns established
within the Mate of Nebrnsiia n state In
stitution as n Homo for the Friendless , ami
appropriation was tnudo therein for the erec
tion of a HUltable home , Katd act providing
among other things that the location ol
said home should be under the supervision
of tbo Board of Public Lands and Build
ing ? , and should be located nt the city
or town that would donate the largest
amount to said home after llrst duly adver
tising for bids for said location.
Said act further provided that the gov
ernment of s-\ld home so established by
the state of Nebraska should be under tbo
.supervision of the Home for tbo Friendless
society , the corporate body herein de-
Fcrlhcd ; subject , however , to such rules and
regulations for the government of said homo
as might bu priwrlbpd by the Hoard of
1'uhllt1 L'tiidH and Buildings.
WtlKIlB THE HOME WAS LOCATED.
That in accordance with the provision *
nf said act the Board nt Public Lands and
Buildings duly advertised for bids for the
location of said home , and through the
efforts , aid andInstrumentality of the So
ciety for tint Homo of the Friendless , pro
cured from the citizens of thp state and
the members of their organization by pri
vate subscription the sum of J2.000 , or there
abouts , and tendered the same to the state
of Nebraska as the city of Lincoln's bid
for the location of the said borne by the
state therein , which bid was accepted by
the Board of Public Lands and Buildings.
The said $2,000 retained by the state and
said homo was located and erected by the
board : it Lincoln.
That us provided by the said act the So
ciety of the Home for the Friendless under
such rules and regulations1 ns wore pre
scribed by thu Board of Public Lands and
Buildings concerning the government there
of , entered into possesslon of said home
so established < md erected by the state ,
contributing Its means and property to the
support and maintenance thereof , merging
lui rights and properties by virtue of Its
corporate capacity with that of the state
and entered upon the supervision and sov-
ernment of said home , and have continued
In the performance of the duties thereby
Imposed , extending Its usefulness unil be
nevolence of iinrlnR for nil deserving des
titute women and children of the stnte , and
all other nela of charity for whluh said
charity was organized. And that in ex"r-
clslns : such supervision of the government
of said homo ns In ? ald act provided , and

this time exercising and performing the
duties of such olllce , and na such Is In ths
l > u < HC--i > lcii of the books , papers and other

That afterwards the state of Nebraska , by
act of the legislature of 1S1I7 , fought to re-
jieul that provision of the act of 1SS1 , plac
ing the government of said home under the
supervision of the Society for the Home
for tin1 Friendless and nrovldeil for the KOV-
ernmeut and regulation of : iilil home by the
Hoard of Public Lands and Buildings , and
further providing that the governor of the

appoint the relntor herein , iMrs. C. S. Jones ,
as the superintendent of said home , iind au
thorized her to < ; nter upon this duties of
CONCLUSIONS OF TUB COtTIlT.
From the facts as herein found thu court
concludes tint the act of 1881 constituted
such a contract butweeu the state , citizens
and the Society for the Home for the
Friendless that In consideration of their do
nation under the provisions of the proposi
tion In said act submitted and the subse
quent performance * of the coiHItloni Im
posed upon the society , Hint cannot be ub-
legated or set nsldo nt the will of the legis
lature wltbunt Just cause , and whether such
ran HO existed at the tlmo of the passage of
the act of ISH7 or do now exist are questions
not properly reviuwable In this 131-0000(11113.
"The state In all Its dealings with Indi
viduals must be adjudged and abide by the
same- rules which govern and determine t'.ie
rights of private persons eontraetlnff and
dealing with each other ; there Is not one
law for the rovcwlKii and another for the
subject" Is a familiar rule , and when the
state sought to Induce Its citizens to donate
private funds for public Uses under the
jiionline 'hat the government of the charily
established should bei under the supervision
of that' society , created , organized and con
stituted Independently for the performance
nf that benevolent work and thereby availed
itself of such society's organization , means ,

thereby vested In Its sublecti" and Hiich so
ciety , rights tluil are Inalienable , and with
out Just and sulllelcnt caitiie , A state being

ment of all wisdom , honor and justice of Its
citizens , and this great commonwealth could
not lav claim to such a high standard nf
excellence If it could bronk Ms contracts
with impunity. This thu net of IS.'i" nought
to do , and without apparent reason brushed
usldo its contract and conllncates the vested
riKbts nf other : ) ; thin the virtue of thu law
will not permit.
The respondent Is , therefore , prlma facie
entitled ta the ofllco to which she has been
elected and to the hooks , papers and prop *
erty belonging thereto until further pro
ceedings shall have boon hail an provided
