The entire forenoon was occupied fir At
torney J. H. Mcintosh in explaining to the
referee the antecedents of the case from
the standpoint of the complainant. Wil
liam O. Shrlver and George T. Morton.
The bearing began at 10:30 In the
forenoon. There were present Attorney J.
H. Mcintosh, who appears for the relators,
and tha following as counsel for the city
nd corporations: City Attorney Connell,
W. W. Morsman, representing the tele
phone company; Oeorge E. Prltchett, rep
resenting the gaa company, John D. Web
ster,' representing the street railway com
pany, and Hall McCullough, rapreaentlng
the water company. J. M. Woolworth, rice
prealdeat of the water company, was also
present. Besides these were a number of
federal officials, several stenographers and
members of the Real Estate exchange.
Mclntoah Reviews tha Case.
Mr. Mcintosh began his address by recit
ing all that had been dons In the case thus
far. He explained the charter provisions
aa to the manner of making tax assess
ments in the city, beginning by outlining
the duties of the tax commissioner, passing
to those of the Board of Review, and thence
to the city council sitting as a Board of
"The city council was advertised to sit
five days as a Board of Equalization," said
be, "and on January 18 William O. Bhrtver
and George T, Morton, on their own be
half, aa well as on behalf of other Lax
payers of Omaha, filed with such board five
complaints, one against each of the five
publio service corporations, alleging that
they had not been assessed on the basis of
a fair cash valuation of their property, aa
the charter provides, and asking that a
day ba set for the hearing of the com
plaints against them."
He then explained bow the council bad
adjourned as a board of equalization with
out having beard the complaints of the re
Denies that ComplaJnts Were Heard.
"Now, these are the facts," be resumed,
"upon which we demand a peremptory writ
Of mandamus to compel these people to do
their duty. It Is claimed by the defendants
that a bearing was bad. January 18, but It
Is Impossible that this can be true, be
cause the complainants bad no notice of
such a bearing. If there was a bearing It
was between the Real Estate exchange and
the Commercial club, bothof which are
corporations, and not between these com
plainants and the corporations. I was
there as ft spectator, as were several hun
dreds of others, and I can bear testimony
that this is a fact."
"As I understand It," said Judge Ryan,
"what you ask this court to do Is to re
quire the council to reconvene as a board
of equalisation and hear the complaints of
these complainants not to require such
board to raise the assessments of the cor
' "That is true, your honor," answered Mr.
Mcintosh. "The raising of the assessments
will rest with the board and not with the
"Then," said Judge Ryan, "the point to be
determined la whether there la sufficient
cause' to warrant the court la reconvening
"That is what we propose to prove," said
Cosuaell Presents Hla Argument.
The afternoon, session was occupied by
'Attorney W. J. Connell, representing the
city;- Attorney John I Webster, represent
ing the street railway company, and Attor
ney W. W. Morsman, representing tho tele
phone .company, each of whom argued
against the granting of the writ of man
damns. When court adjourned at S o'clock
Mr. Webster announced that he would finish
bis address this morning. ,
Mr. Connell began by moving that the
application for the writ of mandamus be
denied without going Into the facts of the
case. He spoke In part as follows:
"Mr. Mcintosh's statement was only par
tially correct. He failed to refer to the
fact that a hearing; was bad before the
Board of Equalisation, In which the subject
matter of bis contention was fully ex
ploited. It may aa well be understood first
las last that this is not a fight between the
people and the corporations, but a battle
royal between Mcintosh and the city coun
ell. When Mcintosh was turned down by
that body be swore there'd never be a tax
levy until be had had satisfaction!"
"Well, we won't go Into those details,"
Said Judge Ryan.
"8hrlvr and Morton were beard." con
tlnued Connell. "They didn't have to be
served with notice, but as a matter of fact
they were there, and so was their attorney,
"When Mr. Mcintosh asks this court to
' mandamus the city council to fix the assess
. stents of the corporations at 40 per cent of
, their fair cash value be Is asking it to com
pel that council to do an illegal act. That
40 per' cent assessmsnt Is a myth. No au
thorlty can b found for It In law."
Referee) Points to Mala Question.
Judge Ryan Interrupted the counsel to
ear: "I would be very unwilling to sustain
your motion, Mr.. Connell, the significance
of which act on my part would be to say
Chat the supreme court bad made a mistake
In referring this case to referee. How
ever, the scope of our Inquiry will be very
nsrrow. I don't think It Is within the
province of the supreme court to say at
what rate the board should assess a certala
piece of property. That Is for the board to
determine. The great question In this case,
perhaps the only question. Is. Did the board
act so arbitrarily as to exclude certain per
sons or Interests from a hearing?".
Attorney W. W. Morsman of the tele
phone company said: "The purpose of the
supreme court was to take up these pre
liminary questions first, thinking that per
haps the case could be disposed of upon
them alone, without having to drag la the
great mass of mstter that would be con
tingent upon the bearing of testimony and
the examination of books and records."
I think It Is pretty generally under
stood," said Mr. Connell, "that the pur
pose of the supreme court was that we
should not go Into questions of fact, but
that we should settle this case upon ques
tions of lsw." .
He then read bis motion that the ap
plication for the writ of mandamus be de
nied, and afterward spoke In support of
It, ss follows: "Mr. Mcintosh ssks that
the property of the street railway company
be assessed at 40 per cent of its fair cash
value, which Is in violation of law. And
how does he propose to ascertain that
value? He wants the company's books
brought In, that be may learn bow much
it cost to build this line and that, bow
much was expended for repairs and like.
But bow does the law ssy this - shall be
done? Does the lew say anything about
bringing In the books of this corporation?
No, It provides a . tax commissioner for
that purpose. Therefore, I say the appli
cation should be denied because it seeks
to bring about something that Is illegal,
and seeks to control the discretion of the
Webster Acknowledges the Cora.
John L. Webster urged corns at Jits ex
cuse for sitting on one end of the counsel
table to address the referee. ' ,
"The sitting of the city council as a
board of equalization was advertised in the
omciai paper oi ine city, saia ne. "ana tne
concluding paragraph of that advertisement
expressly says that all. complaints shall be
In writing and be filed when the board
begins its session. . This means that no
complaint could be filed after the board
convened. The council convened as a board
of equalization January 16.. There were on
file eighty-eight Individual complaints by
members of the Real Estate exchange, and
William G. Shrlver had signed eight of
them. Shrlver was there; so was Mcintosh.
It was a hearing In which all participated
and acquiesced. If they didn't have a hear
ing, why didn't they make it known there
and then? This complaint made by Mr. Mc
intosh Is the same as was presented at
that time. The phraseology may be a little
different. The words 'other taxpayers sim
ilarly situated' have been inserted in this,
but It Is Mr. Sbrlver's - complaint Just
the same. Shrlver will gain $2.60 If this
writ Is granted. As to Morton,' there isn't
a dollar's worth of property assessed In his
name In this city.
"They bad their hearing on Friday, Jan
uary 17. It's no defense to say they didn't
present any evidence on that date. That's
not the fault either of the board or of
the corporations. They were defeated once,
and now they want to come In and try it
again; that's the position they are In.
"What Is the purpose of this bearing? it
Is to have a higher appraisement of these
corporations placed upon the assessment
rolls that Is the gist and the pith of It all;
all the rest Is surrounding shrubbery. And
If the terms of this writ as asked for are
complied with. It will require the council
to do an Illegal act."
Aathorltlea on Mandnmns.
Mr. Webster quoted nine American state
supreme court cases and two English cases,
the purport of which were to show that
the peremptory writ must always follow
the alternative writ, and that the relator
must be entitled to all the relief, be. asks
for or else the writ must be. dented. "The
writ must not be for a particular thing,"
he ' resumed, "unless the parties against
whom the writ Is directed are obliged by
law to do that Identical thing. The court
can't Interfere with the Jurisdiction of In
ferior bodies; the duty must be especially
enjoined by law."
Mr. Webster paused to consult an author
ity, but as It was then 5 o'clock It was
decided to take an adjournment until this

rain washes out boles In the street and
the results attained are meager aa com

County Commissioner O'Keeffe - bas a
scheme whereby he hopes to permanently
Improve this important road. He proposes
that a meeting of the city council, the
county commissioners and railroad officials
be called and the matter thoroughly dis
cussed. Mr. O'Keeffe Inclines to the opin
ion that the county will bear a part of the
expense, providing the railroads using the
tracks on the west and south of Railroad
avenue will consent to bear their part.
The city will necessarily come In for a
share of the expense, but the Intention. Is
to have the greater portion of the burden
borne , by the county and the railroads.
Either macadam or Sherman gravel is sug
gested. Tet If a sufficient sum can be
raised It Is possible that the street may
be paved with vitrified brick. The Omaha
Street Railway company has a line of tracks
from Q street nearly to the county line,
and a demand will be made upon this com
pany ' for assistance, ' providing Mr.
O'Keeffe's scheme goes through. In return
for the financial support given the project
Mr. O'Keeffe favors the city granting to
the railroads concessions which are desired
and which, he says, will In no way damage
the city, but will result in the securing of
a much needed improvement.

FALSE REPORTS. 10 POLICE
Chief Donahue Determine! to Discourage
MANY ROBBERIES ARE ONLY IMAGINARY
Barr Called Vpon to Show
His Story of Brian" Held
t'p and Bobbed Has
Wesley Barr of Greenwood, Neb., who
told the police early Sunday morning that
he bad been assaulted by five men at the
corner of Ninth and Leavenworth street
and robbed of 827, 1 locked up In the police
station and will be given an opportunity to
prove that he is not a fraud and that the
story be told the police was not manufac
tured out of the whole cloth. The police
promptly Investigated Burr's story and re-
ported they had found enough evidence to
Justify making an example of him.
In order to avoid a mistake the Investiga
tion bas Included Barr's career elsewhere.
A Plattsmouth paper states that Barr was
released from the Cass county Jail last
Saturday morning aad that when he' left be
had stated be did not have any money.
About two weeks a fro a man living near
Council Bluffs reported to the police that
he had been robbed of a large sum. He
was held at the station to Identify the per
sons be charged with the robbery. Later,
on aoeount of his Intoxicated condition, he
was searched preparatory to locking blm
up. The money was found sewed up In
his shirt. The police were put to much
trouble about this case, as the sum In
volved and found on his person amounted
to nearly 8200.
A similar case occurred a few days after
ward In which a man definitely charged a
companion with robbing htm. When
searched the money was found in a Uttle-
UBed pocket, where he had forgotten placing
It. These are only a few of many cases of
complaints that leave the Impression Omaha
k becoming a resort of thieves and sand
baggers, and Chief Donahue Is determined
to make an example of Barr In order to
stop this practice of men making false re
ports of being robbed, the fact being In
not a few Instances that the complaint is
made to cover up the squandering of money
by men who want to give a plausible ex
planation to their friends.

When your stock of Pennsylvania anthracite la used try SPADRA to finish
-the season and you will use no other coal for the early spring.;. The heat can
be perfectly regulated with dampers and fire will bold easily for twenty-
v four hours.

rooms, as with Pennsylvania anthracite, thus wasting fuel and money and in
viting draughts, with sickness.
