The greater part of this land waa sold at

this land the sum of tl.OM, the Income of
several years past. Mr. Follmer recom
mende that this amount be turned over to
the general fund or placed In the temporary
school fund.

and that tribunal holds the lower court wsa

Tolata la Commercial Law.
A point In commercial Isw Is decided in
the case of Oakley against Csrr, from Lan
caster, which I reversed. The court ssys
that notice of the dishonor of a promissory
note Its being protested Is sufficient If
sent to the Inst Indorser by the first mall
of the day following dishonor, even though
such Indorser Is an agent for collection
merely, and he Is entitled to one additional
day to notify the Indorser Immediately
preceding him. This need not be a new
one, but he may utilize the one sent htm
by the protesting officer.
The court holds that an action In the
nature of a creditor's bill cannot be main
tained to set aside the conveyance of prop
erty which Is exempt to the defendant as
a homestead. The case cam from Phelps
county, where Henry D. Jayne tried to have
a conveyance from the Holdrege National
bank to the wife of Its president, W. E.
Hymer, set aside on the ground of fraud.
The court ssy there was no fraud, that
the conveyance was bona fide, and that the
temporary residence of the Hymers In
University place for the purpose of educat
ing their children did not rob them of the
claim to a homestead in Holdrege. To
maintain an action of this kind It must
be alleged and proven that the relation of
creditor and debtor existed at the time of
the conveyance, or that It was executed
fraudulently-with the expectation on thn
part of the husband that he would become
Indebted to the plaintiff and to hinder the
collection of the debt when contracted.
York Can l'e Sevrern.
The city of York may continue to empty
its sewage Into the waters of Beaver creek.
John Todd and some others resident along
the creek sought to enjoin the city from
doing so on the ground that It would cause
life on their farms to be unbearable and
would amount n fact to depriving them of
the use of tbelr property. On behalf of
the city It was retorted that It was neces
sary for the health of the Inhabitants
thereof to have an outlet of that character
and that as a matter of fact there had
been a lot of hog pens along the creek that
amelled louder unto the heavens than
would the outlet. The district court dis
missed the case as lacking In equity, and
the supreme court affirms this decision. It
holds that It Is always a question of fact
In cases of this character, the law being
that equity has the power to prevent pol
lution and contamination of running

Terminal Cent pan? Mnst Pay.
The supreme court affirmed the award of

Omaha was a suit for damages. Tbe plain

awarded $1,500 damages. The supreme

CHADRON, Neb., Deo. 1. (Special.)
Considerable difficulty Is being experienced
during the last few days In this place in
getting a sufficient supply of coal to meet
. th Immediat demanda of th people on
. account of the refusal of the Elkhorn rall
1 road to handle coal from the Sheridan
mines loaded in Burlington car. One of
the largest coal dealers has at present a
number of csrs of coal from the Sheridan
mines at Crawford, the Junction point of
the Burlington and Elkhorn roads, which
the latter road refuses to haul to this
place, as it gives them a haul of only thirty
i miles, while If the coal had been pur
1 chased from the Olenrock mine, which
i are located on their own line. It would
; give them a haul of 175 miles In their own
cars. It is understood that an offer of 60
i cents per ton additional to regular freight
, rates for hauling the cars has been re
, fused by the company, and to relieve the
; situation the coal will have to be trans-
ferred Into Elkhorn cars or purchased
from the Glenrock mines, which are now
unable to fill their present order.

Telegram.) The coroner's Jury continued
Its Investigation Into the death of the
4-months'-old Baxter baby and recalled
Mrs. Baxter To the astonishment of the
Jury, coroner and officials she absolutely
denied every charge she had made against
her aged husband last Saturday and admit
ted that what she hsd ssld on Saturday
was wrong. She proved herself Incompetent
to testify, being very weak-minded. She
did not know how long she had been mar
ried, nor yet bow old she was. Baxter,
placed on the stand, told practically the
same story he has told from the beginning.
He Is nearly 70 years of age and of more
tban ordinary intelligence.
The testimony of tbe woman today re
moves every particle of evidence against
him, and his attorneys will move to have
his sentence of ten years set aside. Baxter
was, on Saturday night, finally Induced to
plead guilty to manslaughter, but did so
protesting that he was Innocent. Judge
Thompson on Sunday ordered the negro re
tained here until a further Investigation
could be made. The verdict of the Jury waa
that the baby had come to Its death by
smothering, but whether accidentally or by
malicious cause the Jurors were unable to
