of Lancaster, Lettoa of Jefferson. Grimes
of Llneoln. Baxter of Douglas and' Good ot
Saunders, met here last night and dlscusaed
until after midnight plans for revision ot
various laws. Another meeting ' is to be
eld December 1. at which each Judge Is
to present the draft measures Intended to
ha presented to the stata legislature.
It waa derided that In the absence of
any code revision commission there were
some laws that needed immediate atten
tion. One of these Is that relating to di
vorces. One plan, la to prohibit remarriage
of the party at fault, making it bigamous
to do so. Another contemplates prohibi
tion of remarriage within aix months of
General agreement was reached on the
proposition that the state should return
to the old plan of district, attorneys. It Is
not proposed to abolish or greatly curtail
the county attorney's duties, but It is pro
posed to slice off their combined salaries
enough to pay the fifteen new officers tbe
district attorneyship plan Involves. Tbe
plan is that each district attorney shall
receive S3.000 m year sad his duties will bs
largely devoted to criminal prosecutions.
This will not. of course, affect Lancaster
and Donglaa counties.
The reason for this lies la the fact that
la many of the counties of the state crim
inal prosecutions have been most ineffi
ciently conducted and enforcement of the
law has therefore relaxed. Back of this
lies, of coarse, no corruption or disinclina
tion, bu. simply lack ot knowledge of how
to conduct such proaarntloBa. In a num

Judge Holmes sustained the demurrer of
James E. Bum to the petition of Mr.
Gertrude Edney in district court today sol
told her that ahe could not maintain her
action In Its present form. Both plaintiff
and defendant are residents of Omaha. ' The
case baa been In the supreme court five
times in one form or another, the original
trial lasting nine weeks. Mrs. Edney's
husband owned a stock of hardware In
Omaha fifteen years ago. When be died
she trade it to Baum. who then llTed In
Lincoln, for $14,000 cash and 130 suburban
lots. Later she brought suit against kin
for damage, claiming he had mlsr.pre
sented tbe value of the lots. The coats
now mount up to the thousands. Judge
Holmes holds that Mrs. Edney bad no au
thority In law to sell tbe persons 1 property
of he estate for anything but cash and
that therefore ber contract with Baum waa
void. To maintain an action, the court
says, she must tender back the money and
the realty and sue for the value of the
stock of goods she trsded. .
There will be no foot ball excursion to

The railroad company made a rate of $8.15,
or less than one fare, for the round trip.
Later this was reduced to ' 17.43, but this
was so mttrh higher than was paid last
year, when $3 was the rate made, that none
of the several tbouaands that went then,
would go this year.

torate met today and elected Henry L.

The election of the directors came at ths
end of a very Interesting controversy. Las,
spring the ' directors employed attorneys
and forced the three public service cor
porations of the city, the electric, light, the
street railway and tbe telephone company
to pay more than twice aa much taxes as
before. When tbe election of a new direc
tory came up the attorneys and friends of
the corporation put up a combination to
beat out the old directors up for re-election
and to put In men who would let them
alone. The directors got a tip an hour In
advance and overwhelmed the corporations
In the election. Every member of the
directorate is an anti-corporation man, and
to make the corporations feel atlll worse
they re-elected Secretary Rewlck. for
whose scalp the local managers moat earn

ever, he handed In a written opinion on
the subject. In which be held In favor ef
the Burleigh faction and denied tbe right
of the Balrd faction to appear upon the
ballot at all under existing circumstances.
The opinion sets out at length section

for. a membership of one thousand this

necessary to ask very much outside assist
