County Clerk Drexel haa been entitled
to only 11.500 a year, or $373 a quarter, and
that during the last quarter he has rc

PWXO, which Is 53.80 In excess of the
amount to which he Is legally entitled. He
also alleges that the county clerk claims

Mate Loses on ftemarrer.
Today the' supreme court handed down an
opinion by Judge 8"dgwli;k sustaining the
demurrer of the State Journal company to
the state's petition In the sul. for $S5.0no for
the all. gd unauthorized publication and
anlc of the reports of the supreme court.
The court decides the case on the ground
that at the time the alleged Infringement
oc-rurrcd the state had failed to have the
b-mfca copvrlghted. The court also hol.ls
that no relation of trusteeship existed be
tween the company and the state because
of the fact that the enmpnny had not agree-1
to enter into n tnirt relation. At the office
of the attorney general It waa Intimated
that a riihenrlng would be asked for. It
was said Ihnt a federal question may be n
volved In the decision as to the copyright,

lt derte Fifteen Tears.
The supreme court has affirmed th
flfteen-year sentence of Clarence 8wett of
Holt county, mho was convicted of criminal
conduct with a 5-year-old girl, who subse
quently died of a secret dise.-.se. Pwett
alleged error In the admission of testimony
and claimed a right to a chnnge of venue,
but the sjpreme court holds that the con
viction was legal. Bwett's crime waa cf
the most abhorrent nature, although the
testimony at the trial Indicated that he Is
a man of education. He had been trained
In a Nebraska college.
The matter of granting a change of
venue, the court says, was within the dis
cretion of the trial Judge and In the
absence of proof of an abuse of the dis
cretion the ruling cannot be disturbed.
Most Uok Into Murderer's Sanity.
The supreme court has handed down Its
formal opinion In the application of the
attorneys for Frank Barker, the Webster
county murderer, to have his sanity passed
on by the district court. The order revers
ing the district court and commanding It
to assume Jurisdiction waa Issued In time
to prevent the hanging last June. The
court says in the syllabus:
The Jurisdiction of the Judge of the dis
trict court of Ijiiicaster county to inquire
as to the sanity of a convict confined to
the state penitentiary under sentence of
death does not depend upon the giving of
the notice by the warden. If it is alleged
In a proper application to the Judge, under
oath, that the convict is Insane, and that
the warden unjustifiably refuses to give
the statutory notice, it Is the duty of the
Judce to make such Investigation as will
sntlnfv him whether there are such ap
pearances of insanity as will Justify the
summoning of a Jury to try the question.
Widow nivrn Home.
In the case of Mary J. Mclntyre agalnt-t
Charles H. Mclntyre and Mary R. Mcln
tyre, appealed from Cass county, the
plaintiff, a soldier's widow, si years of ag
has secured the cancellation of the con
veyance of her home to herson-ln-law. The
plaintiff was the owner of "a small cottage
and two lots In the village of Louisville.
She had no other property and no other
means of support except a widow's pension.
She conveyed the property to her son and
daughter-in-law upon an express promise
of support. Within a short time of the
conveyance she was ejected from tlK-lr
home and compelled to seek support else
where. It Is held that the decree of tha
district court cancelling the conveyance
should be confirmed.

The state auditor Is not authorized to
Issue a certificate of organization to a so

title already In use in the state as to have
a tendency to mislead the public. Under
this holding of the court the Western Mac
cabees, a fraternal beneficiary association
organized at Grand Island is deprived or
the right to use tha word "Maccabees' In
the formation of Its corporate name. Jhe
plaintiff in the case is a Michigan corpora

Fix Implement Prices.
The bottom price which Implements will
bf sold at for 1W was fixed this afternoon
hy the South Platte Implement Dealers'
association In executive session.
It van stated by a veteran Implement
iealer and charter member that, with the
exception of wagons, which may rule 12
or 13 higher, machines and Implements of
all kinds will be sold at practically the
same figure as named for 19"6 at the annual
session last year.
Cultivators and harrows have been ad
vanced about 10 rer cent.
"Retailers may use their discretion about
charging a higher price than the minimum;
the association does not attempt to dictate
here." said the dealer. "Retailers are not
interested In fixing a price on harvesters.
The International tells them what they
shall be sold at and the fellow who drops
below the dead line will get Into trouble
Several dealers thought that It was little
use for the association to name uniform
prices, when about 60 per cent of the men
engaged In the sale of Implements were
not members of the organization and were
willing to clip off profits to make a sale re
gardless of the agreement of others.
The price of binding twine has always
been a thorn In the akin of the organized
dealers. Grocers and blacksmiths sell
twine, and often sell It far below what the
Implement dealer thinks Is profitable.
There was some talk this morning of en
listing the aid of the manufacturers of
binding twine to have them agree not to
sell twine to dealers who dispose of it at
cost or at a loss, to stimulate trade In
