(From a Suit Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Mar 71 (Special.) At a man
meeting of about too students of the State
university this morning- It waa decided to
secure an Injunction to prerent the Eagles' I
carnival from continuing. Another meet
ing was held this afternoon, however, called .
to arrange details, and It waa decided not j
to attempt to secura tha injunction but to
boycott tha . carnival company. Accord
Ingly handbills were printed and distributed
containing In red Ink the actions of the
students In declaring a boycott of tha Col
lins Carnival company. The bills appeal
to "respectable people" to assist In ousting
the show by withholding their patronage.
Chancellor Andrews greatly deprecates the
actions of tha students. To tha press ha
"I am opposed to any action on the part
of tha students that would In any. way
be an Infraction of the city. Their con
duct last night was very reprehensible and
waa absolutely Inexcusable. I greatly re
gret that the trouble occurred. On the
other hand perhaps others would have
used different means than those used by
the polios to stop the students. Possibly
the police were too rough, but for all that
there was no excuse for the students to
attempt to break any law of the city or to
destroy property." '
The chancellor will not Investigate the
action of the students with a view of ex
pelling or suspending any of them. "1
hope the matter will stop where It Is," he
said, "and that there will be no further
indents Side at Troabla.
The fight last night was the first time on
record, that the students lost out In carry
ing ..their . point and consequently tha
Students are very much chagrined and the
police are correspondingly elated. Re
garding last night's fiesta the students
claim that they had no intention of break
ing up the carnival nor of destroying the
property of the carnival. Furthermore
soma of them claim that when they were
refused, admittance.' at the main entranoe
of tha grounds, the police crowded them
trourfJ on the" south side between a build
ing and the canvas enclosure. They claim
that here were stationed a number of
canvas men and hangers on of tha show,
armed with" brlck bats and clubs and that
the fight at ones began. They were un
able to proceed and unable to get out or
to give any side ' Steps for safety, conse
quently they claim they had to submit to
a beating and to the beat of their ability
they took all that was coming to them.
Friends - of the students censure the
police because they claim that Lincoln la
a college town and Is dependent upon the
colleges for subsistence, therefore it be
hooves the town to grant the students
soma libertine that are not down on tha
statutes. They claim that the shirt tall
parade Is an annual affair, and tha antics
of the students on these occasions, by
custom law ara permissible.
On the other hand there Is a large con
tingent of Lincoln' people who say the police
did the right t,1ng. except not enough of It.
They claim t&at when tha students failed
to gain admittance at tha main entrance of
the grounds they 'charged the south side
with the Intent and purpose to get In,
whether they, for down tha canvas or not.
Judge Cosgrave, who was a witness of the
fracas, said the law-abiding citizens of the
town should uphold the police, and that
every one of them had done his duty In
clubbing tha students away from the
Wonder Injuries ara Bo Slight
Tha great wonder Is that some ons was
not killed during the fight. The grounds
were crowded with men, women and chil
dren." Brickbats 'flew thick and fast,
whether thrown by the show people or the
students Is a question. Clubs, gasplpe. Iron
slabs and rocks were used as weapons.
During the beginning of the fight some one
fired a revolver, but who It was Is not
known to the ' police. One woman was
struck In the face with a brickbat. A
baby Carriage was overturned and Its oc
cupant spilled on the pavement.
It was the worst encounter the police and
students have -had In years. About five
years ago the two sides mixed up and one
policeman had several of hl ribs caved In,
This policeman waa In the crowd that did
the clubbing. "He slot even.

According to Attorney General Prout the
Isw passed, by tha legislature to allow the
Lincoln Security Mutual Reserve company
to change to a stipulated premium legal re
serve company Is unconstitutional. The at
torney general In his opinion states that he
considers It unconstitutional to permit the
two-thirds majority of ' the board of direc
tors to ainend the charter of the corpora
tlon In the manner provided bythe bill.
This Is the 'measure which he' advised the
go ernor to veto. The governor signed the
bill st the last moment, although he ex
pressed grave doubts aa to Its constitution
allUr and had stated to members of the
press that he would veto It, because he
thought thst the matter ought to be fought
out In the courta ;

Draughtsman Hubbard of the office of
the state engineer Is preparing plans for

the steps at the northwest corner will be
made In the form of an arc about twentv
feet long. The old steps leading to the level
of the campus are old rickety wood and the
change to stone will make a great Improve

The legislature appropriated the money for
tha work and It will be begun as soon ss
contracts can be let by the board.

vember on a charge of felonious assault
on Jacob Stein, a dealer In junk on Broad
way, was taken Into custody yesterday
and committed to the county Jail. Stein
was the victim of an assault at the hands
of three men, one of whom struck him on
the head with a paving brick. Kane, who

sault and did not return until yesterday

Police Commission Qoialp.
The name of W. D. McHugh continues to
fly around In connection with the Omaha
Police commlsslonershlp. The Benson men,
who are asking that Elmer E. Thomas be
appointed, do not want Mr. McHugh, and

however, that he had not made up his
mind as to who he would name.
One faction that Is supporting McHugh
wants him named because the members of
the faction believe that he would be con
trolled by no one element. They believe
that he would be Arm and stsnd pat on
all emergency occasions.
Another factor appeared on the scene
this morning In the person of W. S. Shoe
maker, lawyer and chronic office seeker.
Mr. Bhoemaker wants the office and came
down in his own behalf. He was accom
panied by one or two followers. This
makes In sll shout twenty-five men who
would be willing to serve. The two men
who are being most boosted for the office
sre Elmer E. Thomas, populist, and Mc
Hugh, who was a democrat up to 1896.
Among the others who have been men
tioned to the governor Is Patrick Heafry,
a former memler of the board, and a
well known democrat. Mr. Heafey waa st
one stlme last year prominently mentioned
as the democratic candidate for secretary
of state, but did not look favorably on
making the race.
Railroad Xot Liable.
If a passenger on a steam railroad sticks
his head out of a window In Nebraska and
gets hurt or killed there can be no recovery
for damages from the railroad company.
Such is the dictum of the supreme court
In an opinion Just handed down. It is writ
ten by Judge Sedgwick snd concurred In
by Judge Holcomb. Judge Su'.llvan, how
ever, dissents In a very vigorous opinion.
In which he criticises Judges In general on
their methods of measuring other men.
The suit was one from Hall county, where
Oscar Roeaer, as administrator of the es
tate of Nells Rasmussen brought suit to
recover for the killing of Rasmussen. The
latter'was a passenger on the Union Pa
cific overland flyer. When the town of
Chapman was reached the train did not
stop, but went through .at the rate of forty
miles an hour. Rasmussen espied on tha
station platform an old acquaintance, and
he impulsively thrust his head and arm out
to yell and greet him with a wave of the
hand. Two hundred feet beyond the sta
tion stood a mail crane loaded. Its Iron
ring extended to within eight Inches of the
car, and this ring struck Rasmussen Just
above the left ear. killing him. The lower
court held that .the negligence displayed
by Rasmussen was sufficient, being a reck
less disregard of his safety and a willful
Indifference to the Injury that might fol
low, to constitute the criminal negligence
wnicn tne law says reUeves the enmnanv
from responsibility or liability.
As to Deficiency Judgments.
In the case of Burrow against Vander-
bergh. from Webster county, the supreme
court passes upon a question that has been
in dispute for some time.
Prior to 1897 If a mortgaged property did
not bring at forced sale sufficient to pay the
Hen the holder could get a Judgment for the
deficiency. In that year the legislature re
pealed the deficiency Judgment law, but the
question has been raised ss to whether this
prevents the recovery of deficiency Judg
ments upon mortgages, executed before 1897.
The supreme court says It does not. It
"The law of 1897 did not take away or Im
pair any right of the holder of a mortgage
executed before its passage to get a per
sonal Judgment for the deficiency. It could
not deprive obligees of an executed contract
of the effectual remedy for the enforcement
of the same."
Not aa Illegal Contract.
Judgment was rendered In favor of R. 8.
Horton, trustee In bankruptcy for the
Omaha exposition, against Henry Ron Iff
and his bondsmen. Rohlff bought the Ger
man village concession for 8800 and 16 per
cent of his receipts, and gave a bond for
22,000 that he would pay up. He didn't and
when suit wss brought defended on the
ground that the contract was Illegal be
cause It gave him the right to sell beer on
Sunday. The novel and Ingenious plea waa
made that a typical German village such as
he contracted to put In could not be run
without selling beer and on Sunday.
Tha court holds that Inasmuch aa there
could not have been an Intention to con
tract to violate the law, and as when the
contract was made there had been no de
cision to open the exposition on Sundays
the contract was not Illegal . and . Rohlff
must make good.
Adjunct High School Districts.
To create an adjunct high school district
the concerted action of all of the districts
concerned is required, says the supremo
court In a mandamus case brought by one
Davis against ths commissioners of Cass
county. The evidence showed that It was
not submitted to all of the districts and
was voted on by only a part of these. As
only a few participated It Is void.
Points la Other Decisions.
In Roblee against Union Stock Tarda
Bank the court holds against the latter on
the ground that a note to be negotiable
must bear on Its face entire certainty as
to the amount that will be paid on ma
turity. In Clay County against Adams County It
was held that If an Insane man has a set
tlement of more than thirty days in . a
county that county Is liable for his keep In
state Institutions. In this case a man who
had moved from Adams Into Clay went In
sane In two months, and Clay county sued
the other county for expenses Incurred.
The supreme court Informs the district
Judge of Nuckolls county that courts have
no Judicial knowledge of the fact that
masons charge for hollow walls Just as
though they were solid ones The trial
court made this mistake In the case of
Blxby against Bruce, and It Is sent back for
another trial. The suit Is for the number of
brick that were not put in a fourteen-lnch
wall, but which the manufacturer wants
pay for anyway.
A hard fought case was that of Meyer
against Michaels, from Douglas county,
the lawyers filing all sorts of briefs and
motions. It was a scrap over a wholeaale
watchmaker's tools, stock and the decision
of the lower court is affirmed, Meyer losing
out in his claim based on a chattel mort
gage given by his son, one of the members
of the firm who sold out before the trouble
The law permitting countlee to levy taxes
for a fund to pay owners of sheep killed
by dogs Is upheld In McCulloch against
Colfax county, although McCulloch loses
out because his attorney did not plead all
of the conditions precedent to entitle him
to payment of his claim. The court says
the law is a proper exercise of the police
pownr of the state.
Torn Sadborongh Gets Nothing;.
Tom Sudborough loses out In his suit
sgalnst the Pacific Express company to
recover big damsges for alleged false ar
rest. The court says that the evidence
disclosed that the express company was
systematically robbed for years In a total
of $40,000 or 850,000, and that Sudborough
had confessed to getting some $14,000, all
of which was outlawed. It adds that the
trial court rightfully Instructed the Jury
to return a verdict for defendant as It had
established beyond question that there waa
probable cause to believe Sudborough
' Mataala May Recover.
The suit of the Farmers Mutual Insur
ance company against the Phoenix of
Brooklyn, is ordered retried In the district
court of Lancaster county. This is one
of a aeries of suits brought by mutual
companies to recover from old line com
panies the unearned premiums upon poli
cies which they had had cancelled by the
parties holding thtra and substituted mu
tual pollclea The caee was passed on soma
time since, but on a rehearing the fact
wss disclosed that the request for can
cellation had In many cases been made
before the new Insurance was effected.
The court says that there Is no question
but in each of these Instances tha plaintiff
la entitled to recover, and an accounting
Is therefore ordered.

Holdrege After Norsnal.
Senstor Dean of Phelps county wss here
today trying to get a straight line on that
ntw normal school for Holdrege. The sen
ator seemed to think that while the other
towns were talcing so much fuss Holdrege
was going to land that school. "1 have
heard nothing much about the coming meet
lng of the state central committee," said
Senator Dean, "and I have no Idea upon
what date the convention will be called.
I notice some of the democratic papers sre
calling for a non-polltlcal candidate for su
preme Judge. Thst may sound all right for
democrats to tlk that way, but If the re
publicans had no chance to elect they would
change their tune. We have some mighty
good timber among the republicans that
would make good supreme Judges, and It
will be trotted out In due time."

Body of Missing i'.mu Fossa.
HUMBOLDT, Neb., May 21-8pe clal.)
Word was received In this city
to the effect that a farmer liv
ing a few miles east of Dawson has
discovered the corpse of an unknown man
lying In a pile of driftwood along the
banks of the Nemaha. The body waa
badly decomposed and the almost unbear
able stench Is what, directed the attention
of the farmer toward the place where the
body lay, adjoining the field In which he
was plowing. Investigation revealed that
the body was probably that of Jesse Roate,
who disappeared. , from the home of hie
sister, Mrs. Steve Harman, late In Feb-.
ruary. and was at the time thouaht tn
have fallen In thej-tye and washed under
the lee. As waa Recounted In these dis
patches at the time ,the young man, who
had Just come Into the house from herd
ing cattle took a pall and started to the
Nemaha to get some water, the custom
being to dip It up from a foot bridge.
Tracks in the snow Indicated that he ar
rived at the bridge all right but no trace
could be found, except his cap which was
lodged against the ice several feet below.
About twe weeks after his disappearance
It was announced that the supposed victim
had been seen In the eastern part of the
county, near the Missouri river, and ot
course the search was abandoned, his
family and friends thinking that for some
reason he had chosen to seek his fortune
elsewhere. Later events go to show that
the report of his being seen was probably
erroneous, lor wnne me features or the
man found were unrecognizable, the cloth
ing resembled that of Roate, and as tha
place where he disappeared Is less than
two miles above the spot where the body
was found, no one doubts but that the first
fears of the family were correct and the
young man likely slipped and fell Into the
stream when he stooped to dip up the
water. The coroner was summoned from
Falls City and his verdict was in ac
cordance with the above statement of the
Par Traia Is Wrecked.
HICKMAN, Neb., May tl Special Tele
