William Rolph was creating a general
disturbance at the family home yesterday
and began to beat his mother, when Guy
Interfered to protect her. William seised
a flatlron and hurled It at Guy's head, but
his aim was bad and the missile went wide
of Its Intended mark. This increased Wil
liam's rage, and, drawing a revolver from
his pocket, he fired at his brother just as
the latter was making his escape through
the door. The bullet whltzed by Ouy's
hesd and lodged In the doorcaslng.
Guy did not wait to give his brother an
other chance to shoot at him, but ran
from the house, boarding a motor car, and
hastened to police headquarters. When aa
officer reached the Rolph home William
was not to be found, and his parents ex
pressed their belief that he had fled to
Omaha. Mrs. Rolph, the mother, showed
a bsd bruise on her forehead, which she
told the officer had been caused by her
son striking her. .

a commission appointed by the Judges of

Deemer rendered today tha law la declared
unconstitutional and, hence the water
works will agata be taken charge of by

the ground that It violated the principle

decided that courts cannot perform func
