the Present Sj stem.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. Oct. 27.-8peclal.)-The
supreme court concluded the work of the
third period of the September term today
and brought In a decision In a case that
hinged all upon one letter. Down In Ma
haska cr.unty a negro named Sheffey, who
was Illiterate, was In deit to C. M. Downs.
Downs secured a judgment against him and
the name was spelled Cheffey, that being
the closest that the spelling could be as
certained. Subsequently the negro came
Into possession of some land and gave a
mortgage to Robert Boyd. Boyd sued to
foreclosure under the mortgage. In the
mortgage and abstract the name was given
"Sheffey or Cheffey." The abstract showed
a clear title and Boyd loaned the money
on the strength of It. The supreme court
today held that the mortgage was a Hen
prior to that of the Judgment held by
The failure of the court to bring In a de
cision at this period on the soldiers' prefer
ence law case from Marshalltown Is an
other disappointment to the old soldiers
who are anxious to know whether or not
the law is constitutional. The court has
had the case for about a year. The court
will meet again November 14 for the third
period of the term.

W. B. Kelly, general solicitor of th
Union Pacific, an Id concerning the tempo
rary Injunction which was Issued Thursday
against the Burlington to stop that road
from Interfering with the contemplated
construction west of North Platte:
"Over six weeks ago we filed for a right-of-way
on some government land and ac
quired by purchase fifty miles of right-of-way
"and the Burlington surveyors came
along and put stakes for unnecessary
tracks on our right-of-way.' We surely In
tend to build this road and there Is plenty
of room along there for two roads, but we
do not want to be unnecessarily hindered.
The point of contention Is about seventeen
miles west of North Platte, but It Is Just
a railroad squabble as to which has th
right to certain rights-of-way."
An Injunction has been issued In Lincoln
county, at the instance of the Burlltgton,
against the Union Pacific and this probably
will be transferred to the federal court,
where the Union Pacific's Injunction was Is
sued. General Manderson, attorney for" the Bur
"I have received no papers in either in
junction case, hut I suppose the Lincoln
county Injunction was one I authorized a
few days ago by telephone. We are surely
going to build that road In spite of any
hindrances. We will build along the south
side of the river for a few miles, and then
cross to the north side and continue west
to Bridgeport. The Union Pacific la
planning to follow about the same line,
but I do not see what It wants of a Una
west along there, which Is practically a
parallel to the line which It already has."

Yam Related by Pair of Prisoner
Jibe All Rlsht, but They
A strange coincidence developed In th
arrests of Daniel McCoy and Frank Brlggs
by Sergeant Slgwart and Patrolman Boyles
Thursday evening. The men were charged
at the city Jail with drunkenness nnd car
rying coiicenlt'd weapons. They were fined
$5 and costs each when arraigned In police
court Friday morning.
The stories of the two men, as told lo
the police, fit together like the feathers on
a duck's hack, although each Insists he Is
a stranger to the other. The men claimed
to bo returning from the Dakota hurvest
fields on a train, and just out of Stoux
City Thursday evening a stranger offered
a drink of whisky to them, accosting them
separately. Both said they knew no more
after taking the drink until waking up In
a cell at the city jail.
McCoy claims to have lost $10, while
Brigg said he could not find $30 he knew
he had before taking the soporific potion.

GREAT INDUSTRY OF BIRDS
Ttvo Wasron-Londs of Hay Carried
Into a loft by Sparrow la
Piled up on all sides until It filled th
attic, hay and straw and twigs enough to
make a regulation stack were found over
George Moeller's saloon In Louisville, Ky.
For more than seven years birds have
ben making their nests In the attic at 600
East Gray street. The discovery was not
made until Mr. Moeller had occasion to
visit the attic for the first time. To his
i surprise ho was confronted by a stack of
I hay. straw and twigs which reached al-
I most to the roof. The entire attic looked
as though It might be In use a a hayloft,
and Mr. Moeller was unable to advance
more than four feet on either aide of the
trap door because of th great accumu
lation on all sides. He Know that th
loft hnd not been visited before In seven

Mr. Moeller has conducted tha aalooa at
600 East Gray street for seven years, hav

chased the property, which accounted for
Ms making a reeonnoiter of the place.
When he attempted to raise tha trap floor
affordlns entrance to the attic, he found
that something was holding It down.' It
gave for only a few Inches, and he could
not account for it. He Anally summoned
arslstance, and, after vigorous efforts, th
door yielded fnr enough to permit of the
passage of one num. Mr. Moeller took the
lead and soon found himself almost smoth
ered In hay. ,
"I was startled by the flutter of birds
when 1 first climbed through Into the at
