(From a Btaff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, April 28. (Special.) Another
day ban passed and no South Omaha police
commission. Another day and no oil In
spector. ..It baa been a dajr of suspense
for applicant and a day ot worry and work
for the governor. It waa a repeti
tion of yesterday. Several South Omaha
people were here and several mora
depended on the telephone, because,
probably, they could not get here, or
they did not relish the Idea of "bumping"
Into a conflicting delegation. Through It
all Governor Mickey has remained calm
and aerene and la at preaent doing a little
Investigating himself aa to the character
and standing of some of the men he baa
been asked to appoint. For It la a fact that
misrepresentations have been' made to the
governor, whether to Intentionally deceiva
or not does not appear.
The people of South Omaha who are
clamoring for a governor-appointed police
commission have themselves to thank for
the delay In the naming ot the board. It
waa said today that about the time the
governor bad made up Ms mind to appoint
certain, parties another "dlalntetrfated"
dnlegation would blow In from the packing
city and knock to amlthereena the reputa
tion of the men about to receive the ex
ecutive approval. There may be good men
In South Omaha. who would make a "non-
political, decent" board of fire, and police i
commissioners, but the man baa not yet
been mentioned upon whom the various
nonpolltlcal, decent" factions can agree.
And It la thla, and the fact that the gov
ernor la not personally acquainted with
the applicants- tor the positions, that baa
cauaed the delay.
Some men who had been recommended to
the governor as embodying all that a "da-
have been thrown from their high pedestal
by rival delegations,, and In soma Instances
the governor haa diacovered the rival dele
gations have told the . truth. 84 It haa
reached that point that when a South
Omaha delegation makes a "nonpolltlcal,
decent," recommendation, the same haa to
be carefully weighed and dlgeated before
It can be thoroughly relied upon. Some
men who are good and decent men have
been maligned, however. "
But . no matter who la appointed, the
board will not meet with the approval ot
all factiona In. South Omaha. Aa waa re
marked today, ft "governor-appointed po
lice board will put Into the hands of one
faction a political club that will be used,
and used only for political purpoaea, and
It will not unite the people of South Omaha
along the lines of 'decency or anything
' . If o Oil Inspector.
It was believed by many that the name
of the oil inspector would come out ot the
grist, today, but It didn't. Like the South
Omaha ' ease, too many delegations have
mixed In. One man, however, may rest
easy from now, henceforth and forever-
more for the present at least. He Is D,
W. Hoyt of Tork. This sfternoon Governor
Mickey announced that Mr. Hoyt would be

In November, 1898, the school district

buildings. The board Immediately there

architect, ta draw tn plans and apeclHca
Xttlons for the ereotlou of the addition to

tend Its construction. For this he was to
receive as compensation & per cent of the
coat of the building. This contract waa
made May I, 1899. Later the board die
covered that It had passed a resolution in
November, 1898, to employ an architect by
ths year at 6 per cent ot tbs coat ot con
struction ot buildings and repairs. Acting
' upon this resolution, it promptly appointed
McDonald to fill the position, and conse
quently he abandoned his May contract
About this time the board discovered that
It bad made a previous contract with John
Latenser tor ths construction of three
buildings. It then promptly set aside Its
contract with McDonald, discharged him as
architect and appointed John Latenser.
Latenser then did the work on ths blgb

Tlie Modern Woodmen, along with other
mutual beneficiary organizations, Is handed
a rather warm bunch of criticism in an
opinion written by Commissioner Ames In
whlrh be denies a rehearing and adheres
to the former judgment of the court in the
case of Coleman aaainst the Modern Wood
men, from Cass county. Asa Coleman was
a member of the Woodmen f . r some years,
but a few months before h! death changed
his occupation to one coming within the
prohibition of the order. Under the rules
of Ihe order he should bsve filed a "waiver
of claim for benefits undar his certificate.
He did not do so, nor did the local clerk
require him to do so. The head camp kept
on receiving his money each month with
out protest, but after h(s death the claim
waa set up of nonliability. The supreme
court held that the certificate should be
Here's where the court reaches after the
beneficiary associations: - "It is Insisted
that as these are mutual benevolent asso
ciations they should not be held to the
same strict rules aa respects forfeitures
and waiver aa apply to regular insurance
companies. This consideration would ap
peal with greater fores if the principles
of mutuality and benevolence were, more
frequently applied to holders of certificates
and were more uniformly regarded by the
associations as being applicable to and In
cluding the persons named as beneficiaries.
A charitable organization which collects Its
funds with avidity, but is astuts in finding
excuses for not bestowing themm the des
ignated objects of Its bounty, is not en
titled to exclusive or special consideration
at the hands of the eourta. The enormous
volume of litigations with which these as
sociations have flooded the country and the
extremely technical character of their de
fenses, in many cases, to actions upon ben
eficiary certificates, are sufficient comment
ary on the appeal for fonder consideration
by the judiciary. They are to all Intents
and purposes mutual life insurance com.
panles and are governed by the general rules
or law applicable to such companies."
Mandamns Cnnnot Control.
The Union Fuel company lost Its esse
to compel the City Council to award It the
contract for selling coal to the water
department. " The council awarded this con
tract to the Wbltebreaat company, al
though the bids submitted showed that the
Union people offered" to furnish Rich Hill
coal for $2.10, while the Whltebreast bid
was $2.15 for Cleveland nut mixture.
The court aays that mandamus will not
lie to compel an inferior board or tribunal
to do an act in the performance of which
discretion or judgment Is required to be
exercised. That mandamus will not He to
compel the award of a contract to supply
coal to a city water department to a bidder
on the ground that be la the lowest and
best bidder, aa in passing on the question
of who Is the lowest and best bidder the
council exercises a discretion that Cannot
be controlled by mandamus.
Dlatrlct Jndaes Independent. '
A question 'of more particular Interest
to lawyera and Judges Is decided by the su
preme court In the case of Parker, admin
istrator, against Well, from Lancaster
county. It Is a radical departure .for the
court, so radical that Commissioner AU
berts took occasion to object strenuously
to. Its promulgation. .
It haa long been a question with lawyers
and courts ss to how far ' a judge should
go In overturning a jury's verdict. Should
he take tbe ground because he believes the
jury has not done substantial justice that
a new trial should be given and go on do
ing so until a verdict la rendered In ac
cordance with his Idea of the right? It
Jtas been contended that thla to an Invasion
of ths right of juries', ' biif the supreme
court does not take this view.
It declares that the district court ought
to grant new trials when It appears that a
substantial justice bas tot been done, be
tween the parties. The rule acted upon by
the supreme court that It will not interfere
where the trial court overruled a motion
for a new trial on tbe ground of the In
sufficiency ot conflicting testimony doss
not apply, says this decision, to tbe dls
trlct courts. Thess should bs Independent
and exercise their power without restraint
from the rules governing appellate tri
bunals, taking care not to invade the
legitimate province of tbe jury.
Company Must Pay Damages
Ths new Thomson-Houston Electric
Lighting company of Omaha Is ordered by
the supreme court to psy Mrs. Anna Dent
the verdict she recovered for the death of
ber husband, a lineman, .August 2,' 1900,
The evidence showed that the very day bs
went to work for ths company he was
killed. He went up a pole and while at
work on one wire wflh steel or Iron pliers
his elbow came In contact with a live wire
from which the Insulation had fallen. The
company Insisted that he aaaumed the ordi
nary risks of bis employment, but tbe court
ssys this does not relieve an employer from
taking Hue precaution tor the safety of his
men. The evidence showed' that In places
tbe insulation hung In strips from the wires,
being old and rotten, and In this particular
place It was knocked off by ths agitation
of the wire.
Indiana .aa Heirs,
Another pronouncement of the court on
ths question ot whether Indians inherit
under the stats law ot deacent is made in
the case of Harrison McCauley agalnat Edith
Tyndall. The court aaya tbat the widow of
an. Indian allottee dying before the lssu
ancs of ths final patent to his land, and
without issue, takea a life estata In ths
allotment to her husband, the remainder
going to his father. Ths law of descent
was held at the last term to apply to In
dlans as well as whites, but' In that case
