TAKES CASE TO THE HIGHEST TRIBUNAL
Xraablc All Arisen Over Contest for
rHinilii af aa Island la the
Platte Itlver la BnlTnle
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
aTNCOLN, Dec, 5. (Special.) A petition
tn error wu filed In the aupreme court
today by Jud-e Hamer, who waa granted
a eupersedeaa In the Platte river Inland
case, wherein Whlttaker. McBrlde and Kll
gore are contending for possession of a
piece of land In the river In Buffalo county.
Whlttaker, defendant, ia now tn Jail In
Buffalo county serving out a 126 fine for
being In contempt of court for having re
moved back to the land after he had been
ejected by order of court. The cane has al
ready been to the aupreme court, which
decided against Whlttaker. In the petition
In error It la contended that Whlttaker
could not be guilty of anything becauae he
la living on government land belonging to
the public domain, and nobody ran put
him off except the government, but the
government needa him aa a homesteader.
It la claimed alao that the island la dif
ferent from other public lands because the
act of 187 waa an Invitation for settlers
to go upon the Fort Kearney military res
arvatlon before the land had been surveyed,
and it la claimed that Whlttaker, as the
first lawful aettler, cannot be ejected from
the premises by any court, and It Is the
duty of all courts to protect him.
It la claimed further the right of appeal
exists to every Judgment that may be ren
dered by a district court; that even though
the aupreme court shou'.d Issue Its mandate
to the district court to render a particular
sort of Judgment that there la still a right
of review under the constitution and the
code and upon the ground that the aupreme
court may not know whether the district
court has followed its mandate until It
Inspects the work of the lower court.
The land In controversy la a portion of
the Fort Riley military reservation and Is
an unsurveyed Island. Judge Hamer clalma
under the law the Island belongs to public
dcmaln and that his client, Whlttaker,
Ing the first settler waa entitled to hold
it against anyone.
The attorneys for Kllgore and McBrlde
claimed their clients owned the Island be
cause they owned lota on either aide of It
that were separated from It by ama'.l
branches of the Platte river. Whlttaker
claims that the failure to survey the island
waa the mistake of the government aur
veyor, who not only failed In that, but in
surveying other lelanda In that vicinity.
He claimed that auch failure to aurvey
ahould not prejudice the rlgh's of the
United States tcr own the Island or the
rights of any aettler to hold It. He claimed
the local act pertaining to the aettlement
and sale of the Fort Kearney reservation
waa paased to1 protect all aettlera on the
reservation and that he aa the first aettler
waa entitled to bold it.
. Reverses Lower Court.
Commissioner Duffle, who wrote the su
preme court opinion In the case reversed
the judgment of the lower court, which fa
vored Whlttaker. He held that the failure
of the government surveyors to survey the
Island enabled Kllgore and McBrlde to
hold-It and that Whlttaker could not raise
questions that the surveyor had made ' a
mistake In falling to aurvey it. lie held
that while the, government might still own
It, only, the f government ltet-lf could lay
claim to It, and - Whlttaker could not, be
beard to Bay that the Island belonged to the
general government- and that he had the
right to settle on .and make homestead
entry oq It ' ' ' v
In accordance with the opinion the su
preme court sent out a mandate to the dis
trict court of Buffalo county directing that
court to enter Judgment quieting title to
the island In Kllgore and McUride. When
the mandate waa received Whlttaker ob
Jected that there waa a motion pending in
the supreme court to recall and for a re'
hearing. Hla objection waa overruled ' and
Judgment rendered against him quieting
title In Kllgore and McBrlde.
The district Judge refused to allow a
eupersedeaa bond and Immediately issued
an execution and put Whlttaker and fam
11 y off of the land. The sheriff plied the
goods of the Whlttakera In the highway
and compelled the family to leave the
premlsea. A few daya later Whlttaker
made application to another Judge of the
district court to recall the writ of assist
ance and to fix the amount of an appeal
bond so as tx. allow Whlttaker to review
the action of Judge Qutterson. Judge J.
N. Paul heard the case and finally rendered
a Judgment, on November SO, fining Whlt
taker t25 and coata and committing htm to
the county jail until the fine was paid and
tintll he would Surrender possession -to Mc
Brlde and Kllgore. He also enjoined Whit
taker from occupying the premlsea or from
Laying any claim to the premises. A war
rant for the arrest of Whlttakar waa is
aued and he was sent to Jail. Before Judge
Paul completed the hearing of the appllca
tlona Whlttaker prosecuted . a petition In
error to the L'nlted States supreme court. 1
Justice Sullivan of the state supreme court
allowed the writ of error and fixed a auper
aedeaa bond. This bond was given and the
case waa duly lodged In the United Slates
Five Haadred for Hnsennd.
The sum of 1500 waa declared by a Jury
tn Judge Cornlsh'a court- to be the amount
of damsges austalned by Mrs. Sarah Beard
more by reason of the death of her hus
band. The Judgment rune against Har
greavea Bros., but It Is said that an ele
vator Insurance company will be the party
to put up the coin If It la eventually decided
that liability exists.
Defends Rerlprecal Tax.
This morning Attorney Oenerat Prout
