Tho right of ths supreme council of the
Hoyal Aroantim to Increase the assessments
fnr Insurance policies Is not to be tried
and adjudltfated In Nebraska until after
March J. .
Attorney William A. McAllister of Co
lumbus, who began the -suit, and Weaver &
littler for the fraternal. order, have entered
into a stipulation postponing hearing until
that time. , The . agreement was made In
order to await the decisions In other states
where federal and slate courts already have

the matter under consideration, the points
raised being substantially the same as those
specified In this state.
Mr. McAllister started suit In the district
court at Columbus to enjoin permanently
the Royal Arcanum officers from Increasing
his monthly assessments on his $3,000 Ufa
Insurance policy and to enjoin the order
from cancelling his policy. In case he did
not pay the Increased amounts.
Payments Increase 'with Age.
He 1m 68 years old and took out his policy
In 1SS0. Until 1S08 he raid $1.50 a month,
after that $2.62, and now, by the action of
the supreme council taken this year. Is re
quested to pay $10.77 a month. He con
tends that the supreme council has no right
or authority to change the plan of assess
ment upon the age when a person Is assured
to assessment on the age attained. The
contention set up by the Columbus lawyer
Is that under the laws of Nebraska the ac
tion, if enforced, amounts to withdrawing
from the obligation assumed In the policy
by the Royal Arcanum and the virtual
making of a new policy on a different plan.
A similar case recently has been heard
by a federal court In Tennessee. .The ques
tion has been raised In litigation In the
States of Massachusetts. New York and
Pennsylvania also. Inasmuch as Nebraska
only has about 2,000 members of the order
wlthlu Its boundaries and the other states
have many more, and for other reasons, It
was . decided to hold back the Nebraska
suit until other courts had spoken.
Canadian Courts Reject It.
In the province of Ontario, Canada, the
courts refused an Injunction along similar
j lilies aaitsa lur uy .
j W. M. Glller,. who, with, his partner. Is
handling the case for the Royal Arcanum
' In Nebraska, was a member of the su
: preme council, for five years. This weeH
i Attorney F. H. Bacon of St. Louis, an
' authority on fraternal insurance law and
the author of one of the . two books on
the subject, came to Omaha and conferred
with the local firm. His opinion is the
order will win out generally.
"I am confident the right of the supreme
I council to make the chanae In the assess-

"Mrs. Black is Back" again, and even
merrier than she was when she came hfre
on the tall end of the hot weather last
summer, and nearly choked a lot of us
with laughter, while she fought bugs and
wiped streams' of perspiration off her cheery
face. Miss Irwin Is the life of the party, as
usual, and finds It a difficult matter to keep
her face straight, even while she is reeling
off some new yarn about "little Johnnie."
She has added a trio of new songs to tier
list, and with them wins the most enthusi
astic approval of the audience. Her own
part In the play is made much easier be
cause the other members of the company
are more familiar with the lines and situa
tions than when they were here in August.
As a result Miss Irwin is even funnier how
than she was then.
The rest of the cast Is tho same, and,
with the experience of two months of steady
work in the roles, are making comedy a
more entertaining affair than when offered
here first. And this Is about all that should
be said for them, for It was voted an im
mense success here at the start.
The audience at the Boyd lasnlght was
between a titter and a roar all the time.
This is one of the j Miss Irwin's way of delivering little side

Omaha Heads la EsTart to Preserve

by Instltatlons Not Lo
cated oa the Ijike.
In the United States circuit court at Chi
cago just now Is pending a case that Is
of most Vital Importance to the stock
yards and packing Industries along the
Missouri river. Complaint was made to the
Interstate Commerce commission by mem
bers of the Chicago Live Stock exchange to
the effect that the difference in the rate
on live stock and dressed meats amounted
to a discrimination against the Chicago
market. This complaint was heard before
the commission and an order was made
directing that the rate on live slock to
Chicago be adjusted to correspond with
the rate on dressed meats. At that time
the Omaha and St. Joseph stock yards
companies Intervened and made a showing
that If any relief were granted to Chicago
in the matter, similar relief should be
granted the stock yards.' on the Missouri
river. The order made by the Interstate
Commerce commission Is Interpreted by the
intervening companies as covering their
contention, but the Chicago complainants
are now asking the federal court to enforce
an order that will amount In effect to giv
ing Chicago a monopoly of the trade from
the Missouri river east, and which will
practically destroy the live stock Industry
on the Missouri river.
Case of the Interveners.
The Omaha and St. Joseph companies
have again Intervened and present their
case to the circuit court as they did to the
Interstate Commerce commission. If Chi
cago is entitled to the relief prayed for, the
Missouri river stock yards are alro entitled
to the relief. It Is contended that a dis
turbance of rates as proposed, unless lha
equitable order asked is granted, will turn
all the cattle and hog shipments to Chicago
and place the other stock yards from St.
Paul to Rt. Iouls at such disadvantage that
they cannot compete for the business. Tho
rate complained of affects what is known
as the UHbent -sone, and the statistics sub
mitted to the court show that at present
froiti 65 to 70 per Cent of all the stock
shipped from this territory now goes to
UnlcagO. owing lo me invumuw BiiifiJiuB i
conditions afforded by the railroads. If the
rate Is changed according to the prayer of
the interstate commission men, the remain
ing 30 to 33 per cent of this stock will be
forced to Chicago. How this will attest
Omaha Is shown by the testimony of Presi
dent Bttckney of the Great Western and
Hiram R. McCullough of the Northwestern.
In 1904 the Great Western hauled from the
23H-cent sons to Omaha J.000 cars of stock
and the Northwestern hauled here from the
same territory S.500 cars. This is part of
the traffic the Chicago commission men are
seeking to divert to their own yards, that
they may secure the commission for han
Commission Men Alone Benedtrd.
In the argument of the interveners It Is I
plainly set out that neither the shippers nor
the railroads, nor the packers, will be In
any way benefited by the proposed change
in rates. All the good that will flow from
this . disturbance of conditions will go di
rectly to the commission men, who will be
given more cars of live stock to handle at
their established rate of . commission. If
the rate westbound is reduced, In proportion
to the , rate eastbound, and; t,he , parity is
maintained, then the current, of, , traffic will
not be changed. This Is .naV the inter
veners ask. of the court. ' .

Analysts of the Figures.
The brief submitted to th court argues:
From this testimony it appears that the
live stock product made on the Missouri
river is nearly twice as much as that
made In the city of Chicago; that the
amount Invested in the Missouri and St.
Paul points Is about 75 per cent more than
Is invested In Chicago; that th number
of wage' earners employed on the Missouri
river and St. Paul (a nearly twice as
great as the number employed In Chicago,
we have made no such calculations ss to
the Interior packing points in Iowa and
Minnesota, but an Investigation In that re
gard would show that their financial Inter
ests "are represented by very large amounts.
The omcers, clerks and men employed
at the western packing plants on the Mis
miri river and at Ht. Paul number more
than W.uuo men. These men have their
homes and their families there. Rating
Ave to a family there will be a total of
about 250.000 people directly affected by any
injury that is done to tns packing lnaua
trlea and live stock Interests at these mar
kets This represents the number of peo
ple who do the labor and carry on the
industry, and this calculation does not in
clude the capital Invested nor the number
ot people employed In the stock yards at
the several points on the Missouri river
and at 8t Paul. Thus a capital ot more
tran IllO.OPO.t, producing a product valued
twni uyi mm annually, and the fin-
money whatever invested In live stock.
The argument concludes with this prayer:
"It seems clear to us that the Judgment
prayed for by complainants ought not to
be granted, but If the court should be of
the opinion that Judgment should be en
tered, then the order should 1 so framed
aa to compel corresponding reductions Into
Missouri river points and into hi. raui.
wherever the rates are Interstate rates,
should the carriers in complying with the
order reduce the 234-cent rate."
LOCAL POLITICAL COMMENT
Democrats betting Line on- Amount
of Fees Leslie Has
Daniel Horrlgan, a democratic lawyer and
candidate for Justice of the peace on th
democratic ticket, under Instructions from
the democratic county committee, is mak
ing from the docket of the county court
a list of the cases In which Charles Leslie
or other clerks in the office of the county
court have pocketed a fee for "posting no
tices" or for '"swearing appraisers" or "ad
ministering oaths." The list, so far as com
pleted, covers only, from February 20 in
September 1, 1906, but Mr. Horrlgan is mak
ing a complete list.
This fee Is charged for posting a printed
notice to creditors, or rather - for posting
three notices, ono In the court house cor
ridor and two on telegraph poles Contig
uous to the'eourt house. The law requires
that one copy of this notice to creditors be
published and three posted In conspicuous
places In the county.
There Is no statutory provlsldh for this
charge. Bnt If It is charged, legally ' or
otherwise, lawyers hold It should be ac
counted for to the county, and does not
belong to the clerks In the office of the
county Judge, whose compensation Is pro
vided for by the county commissioners.
Since February last this small piece of
graft has been cdllected from about 100
estates. In the six years the present county
Judge has been holding office tRe rakeoff
will, it is expected, be found to amount
probably to 12,500. Every cent of this, col
lected through the court as purely legal ex
penses are collected, has gone Into the
pockets of the clerks In the office. No pre
tense Is made by 'anr person connected
with the county Judge's office that any ac
counting has ever been made to the county
treasury for this money taken from the
estates of the widows and the orphans
whose patrimony has come under the con
trol of the county Judge.
It has been asserted, and not denied, that
In some Instances this fee of $1 for posting
notices has been charged and collected by
employes of the county Judge's office when
the same have been posted by other par
Out of the 100 cases or such a matter so
far examined Into, Mr. Leslie, the chief
clerk, has received the posting or swear
ing fee In twenty-one cases; Of the balance
of the fees a divvy has been passed around
between the other clerks, Mr. Sundblad
being credited with a draw of t3S. The
minor clerks have been allowed an occa
Judge Ben B. Baker, generally regarded
as something of an authority on tha laws
governing elections, . has been giving a
good deal ot attention to the controversy
over the matter of registration. Asked for
his opinion of City Clerk Elhourn's declara
tion of the Instructions he proposes to
give the election boards. Judge Baker said:
"I am of the opinion that City Clerk El
bourn has a wrong conception of the opinion
rendered by Judge Troup, as well as a
misconception of its effect. The decision
of Judge Troup that the registration made
September 19, primary election day, is Void
is a finality. His decision is the law, and
will be the law, unless the same is ap
pealed and reversed by the supreme court.
The time snd circumstances are such that
It Is safe to say there will be no appeal
from that decision.
"Therefore, according to Judge Troup's
decision, which Is the law, th primary day
registration is void, and no voter will be
allowed to vote on that registration.'
"If the city clerk sees fit to have pre
served the registration made September 19,
to be placed in his Junk shop, thst would
be harmless, but It In no wise reverses the
opinion rendered Ly Judge Troup."
