some pledges that have mode It a llle dif

The "guerrillas" are a band of recently

As 'to Hall lasaraaee.
Up at the state Insurance department It
is stated that while the big hailstorms of
tbo last month have made It Impossible for
the hall companies to pay all losses In
full. It will not necessarily mean that they
will be put out of business. These com
panies are all mutual affaire At the end
of a season the aggregate amount of losses
la ascertained and an assessment levied
sufficient to pay them ana the expenses of
operation of the company. For the safety
of policyholders liability la limited to 4 or
I per cent of the amount of the policy In
ny one year. If the losses are greater
than this assessment will pay, then they
will be prorated. This leaves the companies
free to do business again the next year.
There Is thought to be a strong probability
that most of the companies will not be able
to pay In full.

Bride against George S. Whlttaker and
wU, Impleaded with William II. Kllgore,
Involving the ownership of an Island situ
ated In the middle of the Platte liver about
eight miles below Kearney. This Island
contains about sixty acres of good agri
cultural land, said to be worth from MO
to 1W per e-re. It Is part of the old Fort
Kearney military reservation, and the act
of 1S74, In providing for the sale of the
land of that reservation, made provision
for a survey. For some reason this Island
was never surveyed, and about six years
sgo Whlttaker settled upon It. built him
house snd barn end made application to
homestead It. This application was denied
by the land office on the ground that the
land had never been surveyed. -
Thereafter Thomas McBrlde, who owns
some land on one sldo of the stream, began
suit agnlnst Whlttaker to quiet title to the
Island In himself, on the ground that It
was an accretion. Later be amended his
pleadings to claim the Island under the
old riparian law, by which the man who
owns property on the shore of a stream

who owns the land on the other side of the
Platte river from him. so that It might
be found that he and Kllgore each owned
half of It
The case has run the gauntlet of the
courts and by the decirlon of the supreme
court the contention of McBrlde has been
sustained. In pursuance of the finding of
that court Whlttaker has been dispos
sessed of the land. Judge Hamer contends
Illegally, or rather he contends that his
client Is still possibly In possession legally.
t any rate, the mandate of the supreme
court went forward to the district court
for the entry of the Judgment of the higher
court, and the sheriff was put In pos
session of a writ of ouster. Whlttaker'
goods were hauled out to the road, and In
order to save' them he hauled them away.
Raises Sit Polat.
In his motion for a rehearing Judge
Hamer contends that under the doctrine
f riparian rights the owner of the land
on the south side of the Platte could only
claim to own to the middle of the stream
that flows on the south side of that Island,
nd the one who owns on the north side
can only claim the land to the middle of
the stream that flows along Its north side.
He Insists that much of the land of the old
reservation was settled before It was sur-
eyed and that the act by which the reser
vation was thrown open for settlement
made provision for that, so that'the lack
of a survey was an error of the govern
ment, for which the homeseeker should not
be made to suffer. He also shows that the
land cannot belong to either McBrlde or
Kllgore, because the Island Is considerably
longer than the possessions of either and
extends past the limits of their property
on either shore. In fact, the court which
ousted hlttaker did not find that the
Island belongs to them, but rather held
that It belongs to the government.
This case was In the federal court re
cently In a suit whereby Judge Hamer
sought to have that court restrain the
sheriff from ousting his client, claiming
that It would be an Interference with the
proceedings of the government land office.

PLAY JOKE ON GAME WARDEN
Norfolk llantrrs Give Him a Twenty-Five-Mile
Ride for Noth
ing. NORFOLK. Neb.. Aug. 14 (Gpeclal.)
What was carefully planned and executed
a huge Joke upon the state deputy game
warden by four Norfolk sportsmen may
act as a boomerang and leave the jesters
the victims of their own fun.
A party of four hunters, J. M. Conley, 8.
J. Dixon, A. Upton and Bob Upton, con
cocted a plan whereby they would lead
Deputy Warden J. A. Rainey for a wild
drive over twenty-ftve miles of country and
let him return humiliated and empty
handed after he had cearched the wagon
for prairie chickens and discovered not
even a discharged cartridge. The scheme
worked in every detail, but Rainey claims
the party resisted a thorough search, and
will bring two of them. Conley and A.
Upton, Into court on the charge of resist
ing an officer.
The crowd started out yesterday morn
ing, wclj supplied with guns, ammunition
and hunting dogs. A confederate put the
deputy "next" and two hours later, with
sub-deputy, he hired a livery team and
started In pursuit. All morning long he
traced the suspected shooters along the
way and came upon two of them south of
Battle Creek, thirteen miles fiway. at t
o'clock. He halted the hunters' team and
demanded a search. Thus far the Joke
had worked admirably well and the Jesters
laughed up their sleeves, filling them with
mirth. Here, however, is the point of dis
agreement. Rainey claims that Conley de
clared, when he began to uncover the front
seat, that "You aren't man enough to
search that seat!" The officer say's that
then Conley whipped up, with him on the
step, and drove away so fast that the sub
deputy was unable to keep pace. After be
ing carried for a mile, Rainey says, he got
out, fearing he would be dumped on the
Conley claims that Rainey searched to
his heart's content, ixam'ned the runs and
declared that they hadn't been fired all
day, "that's a cinch." Rainey admits that
the guns had not been fired.
At Battle Creek the hunters bought
three spring chickens at a meat market
and returned with the laugh on the deputy.
If Rainey can make good hi case, how
ever, the practical part of the Joke may
fall hard on the Joker before the game Is
done. Interest Is added by the fact that
there Is personal Ill-feeling between the
warden and the parties.
