(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Nov. (Special.) The su
preme court has held that the new Tucker
Jury law, affecting all counties outside of
Douglas, Lancaster and Gage, is uncon
stitutional and hss denied the application
of Oorernor Mickey for a mandamus to
compel the canvassing board of McPherson
county to proceed under the law In the
preparation of a Jury list. The governor
acted on the advice of the attorney general
for the purpose of testing the law, which
had been found to be so defective that It
could not be applied. , The opinion In the
case .will be filed later.
- The main defect In the statute, which
was offered In the legislature by Senator
Tucker of Richardson county, was the pro
vision requiring the division of the number
of voters by the number of precincts In the
county to obtain the quotient which was to
serve as the basis for the selection .of
names from a list. The state legal depart
ment claimed that In most Instances this
resulting quotient would be a fraction and
that it was physically Impossible to use It
In picking out the names on the list. Other
features of the act were also found to be
Inoperative because of vagueness.
The Invalidation of this act will leave
the counties affected free to resort to the
old law In choosing Juries. Because of the
uncertainty as to the act practically all
criminal prosecutions have been delayed in
the eighty-seven counties affected, so as
to permit the court to pass on the validity
of the act.
,eTt7 Sentence Reversed.
William Newby of Friend secured a re
versal of a two years' term In the peni
tentiary Imposed upon him by the district
etiurt of Saline county. In which court he
was found guilty of forging and uttering
a warranty deed. Newby is an attorney,
who at one time incurred the enmity of his
fellow students at the university law school
by wearing flaming red whiskers, and was
finally the victim of a riot which deprived
him of his adornment. Since his conviction
he was disbarred by the district court of
Saline county, but no action was taken In
the supreme court pending the determina
tion of the criminal case.
Lncas Gets Sr Trial.
The life sentence of John R. Lucas of
Phelps county Is reversed and the case re
manded for a new trial on the ground that
there was such prejudice In the minds of
certain Jurors that he should have been
granted the change of venue for which he
asked, pnd that he did not receive an Im
partial trial. About a year ago Lucas shot
and killed Clyde Lester, a man who had
been in his employ, in a dispute over wages.
Holt County Man Oeta R eh carina.
The caao of Joseph Nickollxack, from
Holt county, is reversed on account of Im
proper conduct of the prosecuting attorney,
who upon cross-examination endeavored to
prove that the accused was guilty of a
like offense upon another young girl. The
defendant was found guilty of a criminal
assault upon Lena Kmlch, under 15 years
of age, and was sentenced to the peniten
tiary for a term of six years.
Fined for Rollins; ( laarette.
"Pat" Raymond, a Lincoln youth scarcely
more than IS yearslof a,t. was today fined
$50 on the charge of rolling a cigarette.
Police Judge CosgTove, who assessed the
penalty, declared that under the recent de
cision of the supreme couj-t, sustaining the
law, no lesser penalty could be assessed
for a violation of the statute. Raymond
did not have the money to pay the fine and
the costs of the prosecution and he was
committed to the county jail.
Finds Traces of OH.
Prof. George B. Condra pf the department
of geology of the University of Nebraska
this afternoon declared that traces of oil
and natural gas exist near Salem, Falls
City, Cambridge and Humboldt. He was
Inclined to believe that drilling would yield
no results at Burnham. He declared that
the oil bearing shales extend from Okla
homa, through Kansas and Into Nebraska.
He thought that test wells should be driven
along the Nemaha and in southeastern Ne
braska. These, he declared, should be
more than 2.000 feet In depth. The Chero
kee shales, In which oil and gas abound,
have been found In many parts of the
state, he declared. Plenty of oil excite
ment exists, he admitted. The state, de
partment is preparing maps and charts for
the enthusiasts, showing the probable lo
cation of the oil and the depth of the strata
In which It is likely to he found.
Skeleton of Foor-Horned Antelope.
The Morrill expedition on the last trip to
the sand hills of Sioux county discovered
the skeleton of a four-horned antelope,

The latter supplies nourish

Lincoln linemen, employed by various

had been arrested' on a complaint filed by
Prof. T. L. Bolton. The latter declared
that Albers had acted In a disorderly man

this, but admitted that all got a free view

finally established, but are still the subject of contro
versy in the courts, the water company contending that
the Water Board had no power to reduce the rates be
