OTTom a Btaft Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Oct. 1. (Special.) George
Bennett, a ho has been Informally chosen
as secretary of tho new State Board of
Equalisation and Assessment, to busy pre
paring the schedules to ba sent out In ae
rdance with the new law, and expects to
) Sra all of them ready for submission to
U Nard soma time during tba next week.
Mr. L.Tinett will follow the Instructions of
the law minutely tn making out the sched
ules and It Is said this la the Intention of
the board to the end that the new measure
may be given a thorough trial.
After the schedules are passed upon by
tho board they will b printed and every
thing will be ready to move along when the
board gets together at Its first formal meet
ing In December.
Jadlclal Tnagle resolved.
Tho question asked of Secretary of State
Marsh several days ago as to whether cer
tificates of nominations for district Judge
must be filed with him to comply with the
law, Is still unanswered, and the time for
getting names on the ballot by petition ex
pirea Monday. Unless there la some way
around the law some one Is bound to lose
out. Of the few who filed their nominations
with the aecretary very few of them filed
with the county clerka In their districts, so
It will take soma guessing on tba part of
attorneys as to whether tho namea will get
on the official ballot.
When the question waa asked Secretary
Marsh he at once wrote to Attorney Oen
oral Prout for an opinion, but so far the
attorney general has not seen fit to declare
himself, and It will make little difference
now whether ha does.

3. I Dlefendorf, the mall clerk who was
arrested yesterday afternoon for rifling
the mall, waa today released under a 11.000
bond signed by Frank P. Davis and Rev
Louis Piper for his appearance before the
federal grand Jury. The complaint waa
brought down from Omaha by United
States District Attorney Bummers, and
when Dlefendorf waa arraigned before
Commissioner Marley he waived prelim.
Inary examination. It la his Intention to
employ no counsel, but throw himself upon
the mercy of the court.
When Dlefendorf waa taken from the
Jail to the federal court he waa greeted
! by hla wife and 19-year-old son, who were
waiting for him In the commissioner's
office. The wife made a brave attempt to
hide har grief and suffering, but without
SHocesa Dlefendorf looked haggard and
worn out. After the bond had been signed
the two and their son drove away together
In a buggy brought by the wife.
In the comp'alnt Dlefendorf Is accused
of stealing S2.S. though It la the belief of
the Inspector that his peculations have
been going on for at least a year and that
he has opened over 100 letters. The decoy

RAPID CTTT. 8. D., Oct H.-(Specla!.)-The
litigation over the Dakota, Wyoming ft
Missouri River railroad, the line projected
and partially built is now transferred to
tbe supreme court of South Dakota.
This company was organized several
years ago and built eight mllea and did a
lot more of grading, but the hard times
coming on ths road got Into debt and all
work was stopped and In consequence me
chanic's liens were filed againat the line
and several years ago were foreclosed, the
bondholders not being parties to the suit
Judgments being rendered against ths rail
road company and ths line ordered sold.
The real property was sold under these
judgments and decrees snd bid In by the
creditors for the full amounts of such Judg
ments, and the Judgments wer, therefore,
satisfied In full by such sales. Last Jan
uary C: D. Crouch, the contractor, who had
failed, again appeared on the scene, and
for about 18.000 bought up the old judg
ments that had been satisfied of record and
commenced a new action, and Judge McGee
rendered a new judgment and decree for
about SH.000 and ordered the property aold
again, without disturbing or setting aside
the former proceedings. This action of
Judge McGee, the railroad company and
the first mortgage bondholders assert is
null and void, and the best lawyers here
and In Deadwood are of that opinion, too.
On September M the real property and
Tanchise of the railroad company ware
sold Boder the last judgment u4 decree,
without right of redemption after October
19, In the face of a statute stating that
there is a period of one year for redemption
in all sales of real property within the
state of South Dakota.
In such litigation, involving a property
worth 300.000, there a lot of Important
questions, tho most Important being, "Can
rights-of-way acquired over public lands,
under the general laws of congress, when
the line is not completed, be sold under
execution?" The best lawyers seem to
think no and assert that it is simply a
question existing between the railroad com
pany and the government of the United
States. This question In the case will ulti
mately be passed upon by the supreme
court of the United States. The sale of the
property held September 10 was not a re
ceiver's sale, but was made by Charles
Canneld as sheriff of Pennington county,
and while the property waa in the hands
of J. S. Oants as receiver. The whole case
and every question Involved now goes to
the supreme court of the state, and It Is
honed that an early decision mar he
reached, as the people here are very anx-
lous that this road shall be completed and
put Into operation between here and Mys
tic. This will then give the shippers the
Burlington system In competition with the
