Important bearing upon theee concerns and
the people who pot their money Into them,
as It virtually dentea the right of the con
tract holders to maintain aotlon under tba
bankruptcy laws to secure a settlement ot
the affairs of the companies. At the same
time be states that the operation of such
companies Is entirely without the law, con
sidering them aa another form ef a confi

gnbstnnee of the Hepost.
The report, la brief. Is as follows:
The testimony discloses that the Secur
ity Tontlua Investment company la one of
thoee organisations commonly known as a
"diamond tontine company.'' whose bust
nesa la of a decidedly questionable charac
ter. If not unlawful. Of the 1110
paid Into the treasury of the corporation
by each contract holder the corporation
ccr.feasedly retains for 'ts service,
another 117.59 becomes the property of the
corporation under Its reserve fund feature
and later, by Inducing the contraot holder
to accept $16il In cash In lieu of the dia
mond provided for In the contract, the cor
poration aecuree another S40. Thus
It will be seen that ot each $110 paid In by
contract .holders the corporation proposes
to retain 10 as compensation for nursing
the remaining 130, and at the end of sev
enty weeks return to each contraot holder
maturing his contract the sum of (160 In
cash; provided it Is In the treasury of the
corporation. Here, aa Is the caae with the
ordinary confidence man and his confed
erates, a favored few are given contracts
bearing low numbers and these, as a re
ward for using thera aa an advertising
medium, reap a handsome profit at the -penae
of their misguided friends and neigh
bors. Owned Only One Diamond.
The testimony discloses that of the ma
tured contracts the corporation paid off
lot, yet It never owned nor delivered but
one diamond, and this to the holder of con
tract No. 1. The only apparent reason for
Injecting Into the contract the clause In
reference te the diamond was ih an en
deavor to relieve the contract of Ita other
wise unlawful character. This attempted
evasion adds to the vlclousnees of the Con
tract without accomplishing the desired
result. The business In which tha cor
. poratlon was engaged Is contrary to publio
policy, ita contract Is so unconsolonable
that na court would enforce Its provisions.
and Its scheme is so shallow that It seems
remarkable that It sheuid have ever met
with any degree of success. I am
unable to conceive how the transactions of
corporation can be construed as a
1 find as matters of fact see that the
corporation has received rrom contract
holders, holding fully 'paid up but Unsatis
fied contracts, between (20,000 and :A.tto,
and the corporation has no money in Its
treasury with which to meet these matured
contracts: It Is not pleaded see that
tha tnetltlonera were Induced to enter Into
the contract with tha corporation by fraud
or deception on lia part, tha parties to the
contract are, tnereiore, in pan ueiicio,
I further find as ooncluslona of law that
the Security Tontlna Investment company,
havlna- never been engaged principally In

publishing or mercantile pursuits. It is not
such a corporation aa can be adjudged In

Against Haasrer, Browning

Thursday afternoon returned a veraict giv
Ing Mrs. Sarah C. Flgg Judgment against
John P. Hanser. w. W. Browning ana ai
hart Donation for 11.160 and costs. She had
auatl for Si 000. .
The plaintiff's 'allegations were to the ef
fect that the three defendants, whose wives
It Is disclosed, had abandoned them for the
riggltes, maliciously and without probable
cause made Information before the eounty
clerk ot Sarpy county July 10. 1000, falsely
charging ber with being Insane. She was
arretted on an insanity warrant and Im
prisoned eight days, at the end of which
time and as the result of habeas corpus
proceedings a district Judge declared ber
not insane and unlawfully deprived of ber
liberty. It was the Injury thus done to her
credit end her peace or mind that she wished
to repair at a cost of $2,000. In his Instruc
tions te the Jury the Judge included this:
"To warrant a verdict for the plaintiff !n
action for malicious prosecution for the
filing of a complaint ot Insanity, there must
be malice on the part ot the persons filing
such complaint and a want of probable
cause for believing that the party com
plained of Is Insane. If the parties filing
such complaint act la good faith on evi
dence, whether true or false, which Is suffi
cient to create In the mlad of aa ordinarily
cautious and prudent man a belief of the
Insanity of the party ebarged, such persons
are protected end Justified In filing such
complaint of Insanity."

add their followers were all down In Judge

Though she has thrice refused to marry
William K. Vanderbilt snd bis millions,
Mrs. C. W. Hargeas, who waa laat Wednes
day Mrs. Pearl Carley Hunt, sea Carley ot
New York City, looked net a whit unhappy
because ot It as she entered the Her Grand
hotel yesterday morning with her husband
of two days, Dr. Charles W. Hargens of Hot
Springs, S. D.
Thus Omaha figures In a romance In high
society that In Its many phases promises
to outrival anything of recent years. Ths
denouement of the entire affair occurred at
Bouth Bend, Ind., last Wednesday morning,
when the two who are now In Omaha were
married at the home ot the bride's cousin,
John Chess Ellsworth, In the presence ot
about 300 society people from New Tork

grew up so tbst Charles went to aollege and
Pearl to a seminary they were In love
When they both emerged from their educa

then the young woman plunged Into New
York society, while the young man waa still
a "cub" and must make something of him
self. Ho went to medical school
But Miss Carley was unusually beautiful.
and also aristocratic and wealthy. This
meant many suitors, and the youth who was
attending clinics had no chance In the end
when the allurements of pomp and position
were pitted against him. So Miss Carley
married Mr. Hunt, and the swim went on,
everyone forgetting young Hsrgens, except
Mrs. Hunt, ss the event proved.
Tonne and Charming Widow.
Mr. Hunt did not live long and left bis
young wife with more millions snd an en
hanced matronly beauty. There waa an
other swarm of suitors sfter a proper in
terval and this time they were not butter
flies, but older, more serious-minded men.
Among them waa William K. Vanderbilt,
who three time In succession proposed to
the young widow.
However, there was a handsome young
physician out In the west whom Mrs. Hunt
had not seen for soms years and she de
termlned to have a look before she married
Vanderbilt. Hargens hsd unobtrusively fin
ished his medical course, avoiding society,
and had gone to Hot Springs, S. D.
Meanwhile he kept track of Mre. Hunt
and knew ot her widowhood. Finally he
went to New York City .and as soon ss ths
two met everything post wss forgiven and
future things arranged. When Vanderbilt
heard of It he onoe more brought the Influ
ence of bis wealth snd position to bear, but
It was useless. Mrs. Hunt had married
mistaken once end refused to repent the
experiment. Meanwhile society applauded
the lovers In sheer delight at the refreshing I
loyalty of their romance.
Bo Wednesday they were married and
William K. Vanderbilt ran out In bis
private car to attend the ceremony. Every
thing was slmpla but tho decorations snd
the spectators. Neither bride nor groom
bad any attendants at the altar. A cake
from Sherry's of New York was a feature
ot the wedding breakfast which followed
and the pair started at once for Denver.
They left Omaha last night. After a honey
moon In Colorado they will . go to Hot
Springs to live.
