(Prom a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, April IS. (Special. J The su
preme court gave Ita mention almost ex
clusively today to argument In the Omaha
tax case. Exception were (lied by both
sides to the controversy and practically all
of the Issues submitted to the referee were
brought to the attention of the court. The
respondents at the beginning of the hear
ing presented exceptions to the conclusion
of the referee that the action of the Board
of Equalization in overruling the complaints
of the Real Ektate exchange and rendering
Judgment thereon, did not estop the re
lators with reference to their live several
complaints referred to In the alternative
writ, and further to the conclusion of the
referee that the action of the board of
equalization In respect to these Ave com
plaints was arbitrary and deprived the re
lators of a right to have the proceedings of
the board reviewed on error, and still fur
there to the conclusion that the costs be
taxed against the respondents.
The argument was begun at 9 o'clock this
morning and with the exception of the noon
recess continued until late this afternoon.
James H. Mcintosh, appearing aa attorney
for the relators, contended that there were
substantially only Ave Issues for discus
sion, which he stated as follows:
Five Isaacs la Case.
First. Whether or not the relators, be
fore tiling said five complaint, a hearing
of which is now demanded, had filed with
said board othi-r complaints "In substance
the same as specified and set forth in the
live complaints. '
Second. That if they (lied said other com
plaints substantially the same as said live
complaint, whether or not said other
complaints "were fully heard and consld
sred ' t-y raid board.
Third. That If the relators filed other
complaints, and they were not heard on
them, whether or not the hearing was
such a heating as to amount in law to in
adjudication of the merits of said Ave com
plaints. Fourth. Whether or not the matter of
the equalisation of the assessment of said
corporations was still pending before said
board and undisposed of, at the time said
Ave complaints were flled and entertained
by the board, and a time set for hearing
Fifth. That If It should appear that no
witnesses were heard or testimony re
ceived In support of any complaints against
the assessment of said corporations, but
that a mere dehsto wan had between the
Omaha Real Estate exchange on the one
hand and the attorneys for said several
corporations on the other, which debate
was on (he part of said corporations In the
nature of a demurrer to the sufficiency of
the proceedings adopted by said Real Es
tate exchange to support a Judgment rais
ing said assessment, and was well taken,
and that before the hoard had taken any
action on the proceedings of said meeting
between the Real Estate exchange and said
corporations the relators died their said
Ave complaints, which were in due form,
and. the board received and entertained
said complaints and set them down for a
hearing on evidence at 2 o'clock Monday,
the 2ftth. then, as a matter of fact and of
taw, it must appear that no hearing was)
-vrr iiau inn cuum in any way aneci me
merits of the relators' said complaints, or
amount to an adjudication thereof, and
that In overruling the same without a
hearing, and adjourning alne die before the
hour appointed for the hearing of the
testimony In support of said complaints,
said Board of Equalization arbitrarily
denied a right which the law gave to the
relators and failed to perform a duty en
lolned upon them by law, which duty this
rourt will lasue Its mandate to compel
them to oerform. '
them to perform.
Inr (Closing the attorney For the relators
asked that halr-splltttng sophistries and
legal technicalities be not allowed to stand
la the way of the rights which he was there
asserting. He said:
Too arrogant and selfish willingly to
contribute proportionately with the small
property owner to the support of the gov
ernment that has enriched them and that
Krotecta them, shall thev now he permitted
y a resort to legal subtleties and technical
rules Inapplicable to the case to avoid the
mandate of the court which Is the only
agoncy to which the body of the taxpayers
can resort to avert the threatened injustice
of having to pay not merely their own
taxea but the taxea of these "corporations,
too? Hair-splitting sophistries and legal
technicalities must not be permitted to

valuable rights we are here asserting. All
we ask is that these corporations pay
their equal and proportionate share of
taxea. We do not ask that they do more.
It la not fair that they do less.

ments have come to light regarding the
death of Representative Albert Gabrln, who
died at his home In this city early on the
evening of January 8, from what waa then
upposed to be acute gastritis, superinduced
by fermented wine used In making a mixed
drink, which he and other members of his
family consumed at a family reunion on
New Tear's day.
8hortly after his death Dr. Wilder per
formed an autopsy, removing the stomach
nd portions of other Intestinal organs.
These, with samples of the wine used in
the punch, were turned over to Dr.
Hlllkowlts. who made a chemical analysis.
He has filed with Dr. Kleiner, the physi
cian who attended Mr. Gabrln when he
died, his report on what he found. ,
Dr. Hlllkowlts says he found large quan
tities of arsenic In the wine and traces of
the poison In the Internal organs, espe
cially In the stomach. The chemical analy
sis showed there were three and one-halt
gralna of arsenic to a tumblerful of wine.
Such an amount could never be ascribed
to any accidental Impurity in the' wine,
says the chemist's report. -
The death of Mr. Gabrln Is to be Investi
gated by the Woodmen, of which society
he was a member In good standing at the
time of his death. He carried a large life
insurance policy. The payment of the
policy has been stopped, pending the result
of the Investigation.
Miss Agnes Gabrln, sister of the deceased.
and bis father, Herman Gabrln, both of
whom drank wine at the reunion, are very
sick and have been since that time. The
condition of the young woman last night
wss serious. Dr. Albers, the physician at
tending them, says they are suffering from
acetate or arsenic poisoning, over three
months after the fatal dose was drunk.

BRUSSELS. April 1. The diplomatic,
private and public galleries of the Cham
ber of Representative were filled to their
capacity today when the debate on the pro
posed revision of the constitution began.
Mr. Bernhaert, the former president of the
chamber and secretary of state, opened the
discussion. He was frequently Interrupted
by M. Van dcr Velde, the socialist leader,
with shouts of "universal suffrage Is su
preme." M. Bernaert expressed the opinion that
the present Belgium electoral system was
satisfactory. He referred to the numerous
social laws passed during the laat fifteen
years, at tbe behest of the socialists, and
said the letters' sole recognition of the
passage of these laws was the declaration
of a general strike, accompanied by threats
After the speech of M. Bernaert and a
speech delivered by M. Feron, progressist,
which monopolised the entire session and
fell very flat, the opening day of tbe great
debate on the proposed revision of the con
stitution ended In what was almost a
WaJJInar for Fiery Speeches.
The members were evidently waiting for
the delivery of the speeches of tbe socialist
and liberal leaders, and the response of the
premier, M. DeSwet de Nayor, tomorrow
and Friday, when it Is expected vote will
be taken which will Instil life Into the
The great stir on the streets on the ad
journment of the chamber dwindled to the
appearance of 200 persons, who accom
I panted socialist deputies to the office of
their organ. La Peuple, where M. Van der
Velde addressed the crowd. He eald the
day's proceedings In the chamber had not
modified the situation, and the govern
ment was still recalcitrant and had shifted
the responsibility for a dissolution of Par
liament, which the revisionists would de
mand If the chamber rejects the proposal
to revise the constitution, upon the king,
who thus far had been silent. The collapse
of the proposed demonstration waa attrt-
ing precautions taken by the police, which
seem to place further serious disturbances
In Brussels out of the question.
A feeling is gaining ground that the gov
ernment will entirely reject the proposed
revision of the constitution.
This evening it was announced that 150,
000 men were out on strike In the districts
of Mons, Charlerol and Liege alone.
The number of strikers In tbe chief In
dustrial centers Is estimated as follows:
At Charlerol, 60,000; In the central dis
trict. 27,000; at Borlnage, 25,000; at Liege.
30,000, and at Vervlers, 8,000. Later n vne
day large, accessions to the ranks of the
strikers at Charlerol brought the total In
that district to 60.000.
The glass works at Courcelles were prac
tically destroyed by fire laat night. It is
estimated that the damage will amount to
600,000 fraucs. It Is believed the fire was
started by an incendiary.
Disturbances were reported from various
parts of the country last night. Small bombs
were exploded at Liege and elaewhere. A
bottle filled with gunpowder was exploded
at tne door of a resident at th
worns at Marlemont. near La Louvlera.
Only trifling damage was done by the ex-
iiuiiuu m oe Domos. At Kenalx an
earthenware Jar with a fuse attached to It
was discovered on the threshold of the
Catholic club. The fuse waa extinguished
by a passerby. The only other Incident at
Renalx was the throwing of a niece of
lighted tow Into a achoel.
Civil Guards Rebel.
A detachment of civic guards on duty In
the suburb of Etterbeek became disgruntled
yesterday .evening on account of being keot
on duty in tbe heavy rain and protested
against remaining under arms any longer
Several of the guards threw their cart-
rmges into tbe gutter and shook their
flats In the officers' faces. This, however.
was an isolated attack. The civic guards
generally are thoroughly reliable. On their
behavior depends the tranquillity of this
