Tells the Supreme Court It Erred in Deciding
Folioe Board Case.
DECISION DISAPPOINTS THE GOVERNOR
tate Board Leaaea All the School Land
la Boyd County, Which Cleans Vp
Practically All the- Land
In the State.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, May 24. (Special.) A motion
for a new trial of the Omaha Fire and
Police commission case wt filed In the
supreme court today. The application la
made by C. C. Wright, relator In thu man
amus case. The following grounds are
cited as reasons why k new trial should
Because the judgment and decision ren
dered herein by the court Is contrary to
Uecauae the court erred In refusing to
grant the writ of mandamus aa prayed.
Because the court erred In sustaining the
plea as res adjudicate aet forth In the
return of the respondent.
Because the court rrrrd In holding that
the state was a party In the rase of the
Btnte ex rel Smyth against Moores et al.
Because the court erreu in holding the
matter adjudicated In the case of the State
ex rel Smyth against Mooree was the right
Of the governor to appoint.
Becaune the court erred In holding that
an action against a person to oust hlra
from office Is an action against an officer,
the result of which binds his successor In
Because the court erred In holding that
the stats was a party In the several actions
mentioned In th? return to the alternative
writ uiiued in this case.
liecause the court erred In holding that
there waa anything In Utlgntlon In the
Judgment set up as res adjudicate. In this
case further than the term of office held
by the partlea at that time.
Because the return to the alternative
writ in this cane shows that the term of
office under which the litigation aet up in
the return as rrs adjuillcaia has long lnca
expired and tnnt tne res tn those case ad
Judlcatrd was the right of those particular
partlea to, hold the term therein specilled
and over which the contention arose.
Because In those contentions the law re.
latin to the thing there litigated was de
termined for the purpose of that case only
and has no binding effect on this court ex
cept as an authority which has since been
Because by the decision In thla cast the
court has arrived at the conclusion that a
valid constitutional law In full force and
effect can exlat In this state without power
In this courts to cntorce It. an absurdity
which will neeesarlly bring disrespect upon
the Jurisdiction of the state.
(iovrrnor la Disappointed.
Governor Savage has not hesitated -to
show his dissppolntment at the holding of
the court. He was anxious to have the writ
of mandamus issued and haM even gone so
far as to determine upon a list of appoint
ments, which would have been made public
Immediately had the court decided against
the present board. Governor Savage was
out of the city when the court's opinion was
delivered, but when he returned the next
day he hastened to the department of Jus
tice for a consultation with Attorney Gen
eral Prout. Just what advice or recom
mendation waa given by the attorney gen
eral'la not known, but It Is given cut semi
officially that the governor will not at
tempt to Install a board of his own creation
unless the supreme court overrules the mo
tion for a new trial.
What agltltee- the governor is that por
tion of the opinion which declares: "The
decision In the Moores case la not, law, but
for the purpose of litigation It stands in the
place of the law. The governor may ap
point, but In the face of a plea of rea ad-
judlcata we cannot put . bis appointees In
possession of the office.
Land Commlslsoner Follmer and Deputy
Commissioner Eaton returned today from
Boyd county, where they held a series of
successful achool land auctlona.
"We consider the auctions In Boyd county
among the beat we have beld this year,"
said Mr. Eaton. "The demand for the land
was far greater than the aupply and in
every lnatance the land waa bid up to the
full appraised value, and In many cases
land was rented on an exceea basla. The
value upon which we leaeed the land ranged
from $8 to $20.75 per acre. We leased about
2,000 acrea and could have disposed of twice
aa much at the same prices. There were
buyers there from Omaha, Sioux City
and various placea in Nebraska and South
Dakota, besides the residents of Boyd
county..' The territory there is enjoying a
substantial boom and bids fair to Become
one of the most prosperous and important
communities in tha state."
Thla practically puts all the school land
In the state under leaae, the few acrea re
maining being fractional pieces.
The republican convention tor the First
congressional district will be held in this
city next Tuesday evening and it la a
foregone, conclusion thSrt it will renominate
E. J. Burkett- for a thira term, a i
months ago there were signs of opposition
to Mr. Burkett, but the recent rapid strides
he has made In the house of representatives
gave him a decided advantage and bis com
petitors aoon withdrew. It Is not likely that
any other name than his will be presented
In the convention.
Detective Malone la In Missouri arranging
for the return of th much-wanted Al
Beard of tbla cltv. He went armed with the
necessary requisition papers and haa had
them honored by the governor at jenerson
City. Beard will be tried for complicity
in the Gllllland murder.

Good building material
Stone and mortar. Day by day
the building grows becoming
higher, broader, more solid.
The best building material
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. . Day by
day it makes thin and rale children
take on renewed strength, until soon they become
stout and robust. All puny and languid children
need this great builder of pure and rich blood.
Feel perfectly free to consult your fivnily
physician on all these subjects. He knows the
formula for our Sarsaparilla.
All through th raising of my family I found that Ayer's Sarsaparilla was th
beat medicine w could keep ia th house. I am now past 74 years of age, and I
know from experience tbat Ayer's Sarsaparilla is th best family medicine ia th
world." T. 8. AMrrOKO, Kokomo, Ind.
