LINCOLN, April 2 (Special.) Judee
Frost of the dltrit court this afternoon
gave a decision which. In effect, annula
the contract recently made with C. O. Shee
ley by the Lancaster county board of torn
tntasloners for the construction and repafr
of bridges and culvert la this county. The
Injunction given restrains the commit lon
er,, the county clerk and Mr. Sheeley
from proceeding under the contract or
agreement and enjoin the filing, consid
eration or allowance of claims for work
already performed or for supplies fur
nished. This order, however. Is made con
ditional on the filing of a bond for $5,000.
It was shown by the evidence and testi
mony that two members of the board of
commissioners entered into the contract
with Sheeley without either notifying the
third member, advertising for bids or con
sidering other proposal. In various warn
the term of the contract itself were alleged
to have been violated, both by Mr. Sheeley
nd the commissioners, who signed it on
behalf of the county. It Is probable that
motion will be made for a rehearing.
Truahle Over Line Peace.
At the conclusion of a sensational trial
In police court this morning J. F. Lansing,
a prominent real estate and business man.
nd builder of what Is now the Oliver thfa
ter. was fined $5 and cos's for assaulting
Mrs. Gotlleb Wessell. The Wessells own
property adjoining Mr. Lansing's residence
lot at Eighteenth and K streets and for
several months the owners have been in
dispute as to the dividing line, the Wes
sell, claiming that their neighbor was
trespassing on fully three feet of their
fond. About a month ago they tore down
the fence during Mr. Lansing's absence and
erected a new one where they claimed the
dividing line by right ought to be. Mr.
Lansing was apprised of the proceeding and
hastened to the scene. He Jerked the new
fence down and some hot words were
spoken by persons on both sides of
the controversy. During the discus
sion. In which the family of Mr.
Wessell took an active part. Frits
nd Herman Wessell, sons of Gotlleb We
sell, ran Into their house and emerged
few minutes later with two shotguns. One
slot was fired but took no effect. The
other weapon was leveled at Mr. Lansing's
face, but was pushed out of aim by the
boy's mother and sisters.
In the melee Mrs. Wessell was struck
by a board in the hands of Mr. Lansing,
nd In the trial today she alleged that Lan
sing used Insulting language In speaking to
her. Frits and Herman Wessell were ar
rested subsequent to the occurrence and
both fined $10 and costs. A few days after
the ease was aettled a complaint was made
against Mr. Lansing and his arrest fol
lowed. Hearing was Continued until today.
The complaining witness in the first 'case
was the defendant today and the defend
ants before were today the principal wit
nesses for the prosecution.
A singular festure of the proceeding,
was the fact that Mr. Lansing was de
fended by the attorney who was bis legal
antagonist for ten years in a aeries of ex
traordinary caws, ail involving or growing
out1 of the 'dlff etences between the' owner
of the Lansing theater. The legal fight
for the ownership of this bniMIng was one
of the fiercest ever waged In the courts
of this county. It will be remembered
that Mr. Lansing was so persistent in hi
efforts that be employed a force of men to
enter the theater after performance one
night and atrip it of all movable fixtures.
The scenery, stage trappings, draperies,
carpets and numerous other things were
removed from the building. Even the
chairs In the parquet were loosened from
the floor, preparatory to taking them
out. Mr. Lansing declined to pay the $5
fine and announced his Intention of appeal
ing to the district court.
