', . . $2.25 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.

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- I menfr nlnn -tll Ha unlipM hv thA romrtw." ' i said Mr. Glller.

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 CHICAGO SEEIS MOXUPOLI Wisdj Citj Mtn Wnt to Control Lit Suck Indoitrj. MISSOURI RIVIR POINTS MAKE FIGHT Omaha Heads la EsTart to Preserve the Parkins; Trade Now Enjoyed 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 dling It. 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. ' . Comparison of Interests. ' As showing the relative importance of the Interests Involved a comparison' of the live stock and packing industry In Chicago and at the other points to be affected by the court's order is made.

Wages paid annually Miscellaneous expenses Cost of material used Value of product 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- J0 or rds In k nor 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 rocketed. 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 ties. , 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 sional share. 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."
