(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Oct. 18 (Special Telegram.)
A county register of deeds will be elected
this fall, the supreme court this evening
having decided the law regulating the elec
tion of register of deeds invalid. Chief
Justice Holcomb and Judge Sedgwick held
the law bad, while Judge Barnes dissented.
An opinion will be written later.
The validity of the law providing for the
election of county supervisors probably will
be passed upon tomorrow, while the Doug
las county primary election law decision
may not be handed down until the next sit
ting of the court.
The cases Involving tha validity of the
county register of deeds law came up from
Gage and Buffalo counties, where nominees
for the office brought suit to cdmpel the
county clerk by mandamus to put the
names on the official ballot. The manda
mus will Issue, as the majority of the court
held the law is unconstitutional.
Both this case and the case Involving the
validity of the county supervisor act were
argued this afternoon, the attorneys con
cluding after 6 o'clock. The judges at once
went Into consultation and decided the reg
ister of deeds case and then concluded to
wait until tomorrow before passing upon
the latter act
Judge Barnes, speaking for the court, said
he regretted the Inability of the court to
pass upon all the election laws today, but
attributed It to the fact that the cases wer.
not filed until the last minute, when thoy
might have been filed weeks ago. In dis
senting In his opinion Judge Barnes held
that the register of deeds Is not a consti
tutional office and therefore the legislature
has authority to regulate the election of a
register of deeds without violating the con
stitution. The majority held the legisla
ture had no authority to extend the term ot
office of the register of deeds.

GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Oct. 18.-rSpe-clal.)
The arraignment in the county
court this afternoon of Alex Galllpaux, for
many years connected with the Union stock
yards In this city, on the charge of stealing
sheep,- Is believed to be the beginning of a
number' of arrests in connection with the
same crime. For some time pa"t It has
been noticed that here and there a few
sheep were missing from each shipment
stopped and fed or watered here. There
were never any large numbers missing, but
complaints of a shortage became frequent.
The Union Pacific secret service took the
matter up. While Galllpaux was gone, one
day recently, a search was made of his
premises and elgnteen head of sheep were
found which, It was alleged, belonged to a
shipment coming through here. The offi
cers took charge of the sheep. When Galll
paux returned his wife Informed him of
what had taken place. Galllpaux Imme
diately, left, but was arrested at Kearney
while trying to dispose of one of his horses.
He was brought back and will be tried in
the courts here. He alleged that the sheep
had been placed on his property without
his knowledge and that he had nothing to
do with their theft.
