Time of Two Federal
An Iowa snd Nebraska Judge, both of the
United States circuit court, sat together In
a federal court room Monday over two cases
which sre exactly similar, but one of which
spplies In Iowa and ths other In Nebraska.
To save unnecessary delay and red tape In
the distribution of Justice Judge McPherson
and Judge Munger bunched tbe cases and
the decision which they reached late Mon
day afternoon will be filed at Des Moines
today, as It was in Omaha yesterday.
Tbe matter In litigation blngea on the
nam "oxydonor," a patent medical device
put on th market by the Anlmarlum com
pany of New York City. From her ia be
ing sold by E. L. Moses "Oxygenor," an
other device, similar In appearance and In
name. G. W. Fillooa sells the same thing
in Iowa. Th Anlmarlum people say -that
tbe "Oxygenor" folks put out their article
on ths strength of th reputation which
"Oxydonor" had gained and are selling It
successfully on th similarity of nam and
looks. They want the "Oxygenor" men pro
hibited from using either name or selling
either article, and wish them to account for
all profits so far.
Defendants maintained that auch a propo
sition wa preposterous and asked that they
be discharged from under it. Th double

Moses and Fllloon that th Anlmarlum
plaintiffs bs thrown over tbe transom and
allowed the plaintiffs time in which to

Which Proposes to Balld
from Des Moines.
A new railroad from Omaha Into north
western Missouri, with connections to Des
Moines, la., Is one of the things which Is
being talked of now. The projector of
this line, according to current report, Is
David Rankin, the wealthy farmer and
tockralaer of Tarkio, Mo. Mr. Rankin,
with hi son, William Rankin, was in
Omaha several day last week and hsd a
conference with the local representative
of tbe company which has projected a line
of road from Des Moines to Blanchard,
Ia. His object In this visit was to have
the company extend that line to Tarkio,
where It would Join the line contemplated
by Mr. Rankin from Omaha to that point.
He is said to have assured tha representa
tive of the Iowa company that If his
proposition met favorable treatment at the
hands of the company be would put a
large number of horses to work on ths
right-of-way of the new road and give tbe
company a graded roadbed without expenso
"Then," he said, "I will begin work on
the line from Omaha to Tarkio. I have
been thinking of this matter for several
months and have submitted tbe proposition
to others who have some money and ths
arrangement 1 complete for the sale of
the bonds necessary to build the line. The
preliminary survey runs through Council
Bluffs, Glenwood, Tabor, Sidney and River
ton to the state line and then by air line
to Tarkio. I would start to work imme
diately, but the partlea who have promised
to take the bond have not given guaranty
for tbe fulfillment' of their contract and I
desire no hitch In the proceeding after
the work I started."
David Rankin 1 one of th heaviest
buyers for feeding on the South Omaha
market, having one or more buyer here
during the feeding season and making
many trlpa to the market himself during
the year. His farm near Tarkio la one
of the largest In the west and hla feeding
Is done on a scale not equalled by any
other farmer In that state. It Is said
that for some time he ha been trying
to get tbe Burlington road to give blm
better facilities for the handling of bis
crop and stock, and while there Is a load
ing yard on the farm, there la not sufficient
trackage to suit him. Tarkio Is on a branch
of the Burlington and ttre are complaints
on tbe part of many shippers that they
have no direct connection with the east.
The proposed line to Des Moines would
give them a competing line to Chicago
and also to Omaha.
The local representative of the Iowa line
could give the Missouri farmer no posi
tive answer to hi proposition for a free
road-bed, but will submit the matter to
the board of director.

EXTENDING WATER WORKS FRANCHISE
Board of Education Disposes of Land
Hear Vnlon Pacific Depot and
Defers Purchase of School
A large delegation of members of the
Anti-Saloon league attended the council
meeting last night, supposing that the li
cense committee would make a report on
the request filed a week ago In connection
with the enforcement of the Slocum law.
What ths members of the league want Is
a strict enforcement of the law, saloons
to close at midnight and have a stop put
to the selling pf liquor to minors. A num
ber of ministers, representing the churches
here, were In the party and all appeared to
be disappointed at the action of the council.
Broderlck of the license committee, when
It 'came his time to report, requested fur
ther time, he, however. Intimating that
perhaps the committee would be able to
make a report at the next meeting of the
council to be held one week from last
Tbe mayor handed down a veto of the res
olution passed by the council at tbe last
meeting, In connection with the South
Omaha Independent Telephone company.
This resolution directed that the company
remove its pole and wires from the
streets and alleys and desist from con
struction work until after it had secured
a franchise, but tbe council could not see
It that way. All of the members of the
council with the exception of Smith voted
to turn the veto down and so the resolu
tion as now on the records stands.
A short time ago a committee waa ap
pointed to confer with officer of ths
Omaha Water company In relation to the
placing of additional hydrant. Adkins, a
chairman of th ia special committee, re
ported that the company declined to locate
any more hydrants at the present time for
the reason that there was bo money In
sight to pay back bills or for hydrants now
In use. The company, however, offered to
locate forty-eight additional hydrants and
furnish the same free to the city until
October 17, 1904, providing a franchise or
dinance was passed granting to the com
pany a new contract for ten years from
October 1904 to the same month In 1914.
The council evidently thought well of the
plan for the report was adopted without
comment. Following this report came the
reading of a franchise ordinance, or con
tract with the water company, giving the
details of the agreement to be made be
tween the city and the water company.
This waa referred to the Judiciary commit
tee. At the present time the city maintains
202 hydrants at an annual rental of $60. In
case the ordinance requested Is passed tho
rate will be reduced to $50 a year after
A petition signed by nhnut fifty citizens
was presented asking the mayor to re

his certified check.
There was considerable .talk about the

of a two-room addition to the Hawthorne

monopoly are injurious to the Industries ef

tion. The complaint asks that all of ths de
fendants be adjudged to have forfeited
their rights to do business in ths state
and thst they be ousted and foreVer exclu
ded from doing business in tbe stats, and
that a receiver be appointed to take charge
of their property.
The court stated that in fairness to the
defendants they should receive notification,

Then follows a severe arraignment ef the
company's methods, particularly excessive
charges "for ths smelting and reductioa of
ths gold and sliver ores which ars shipped
to It by the people of said state;" con
