Want Their Fees.
Members of the Insanity commission are
engaged In a dispute with the county com
missioners over the payment to them of
fees for hearing dipsomaniac cases. Tbe
county attorney ruled that the commis
sioners had no warrant In law for allowing
these fees, and tha claims, amounting to
$100, were rejected.
C. C. Marley, a member of the commis
sion, today tiled sn appeal to the district
court, where the question Is to bs settled.
The commissioners say they cannot be re
quired to act without tha payment of fees,
and the chances are that If the county at
torney Is upheld in his contention that the
law la defective In not providing for wit
nesses' and commissioners' fees, the law
will simply be a dead letter, as the officer
will not work for nothing-.

FREMONT, Nh Jan. &. i Special.
Lte yesterday afternoon a grip was found
on Brldgs Island not far from the alts of
Calls-han's grading camp, which may
throw some light on the Saunders county
murder. It was covered with snow and
had evidently been lying there for several
days. It contained a quantity of under
clothing and some shirts and collars, which
evidently belonged to two parties. On the
1 collars were laundry marks and on soma
the nsme of Much McDonald and on other
that of A. F. Adams. There were also some
handkerchiefs and a number of toilet
articles, a B'ble that had been read, a
numbi-r of letters and a diary. The entries
In the diary begin last spring In New Tork
City, where the two men evidently lived.
From them It appears thst the two left
New Tork at the same time and came
west fngether, stopping occasionally to
work a few weeks to get money to
travel on and evidently paving their
fare on trains. There are cards
and addresses of a number of employment
arencies from Buffalo to Omaha. The men
had been working for Callaghan. Judging
from the clothing both were laboring men
and a pair of long stockings such as are
worn by linemen Indicates that one of them
may have worked at that trade.
The New Tork City police were notified
and an attempt will be made to find out
something of McDonald and Adam at their
former home. Callaghan's grading outfit
broke camp Saturday afternoon and the
men were paid off and left. Hundreds who
viewed the remains of the murdered man
at Bader's undertaking rooms and a good
many people are positive that they saw
him In town on different days last week
in company with another party. Since the
failure of Charles Pierce and wife to Iden
tify the body as that of Thad Browning
the grip appears to furnish the best clue
that the officers have hd- Mrs. Pierce In
forms Sheriff Bauman that she has received
a telegram that Browning Is living and Is
at Kansas City, Mo. Saunders county peo
ple are taking an increasing Interest In
trying to solve the mystery.
KEW IDEA OF CITY EIXCTIOSS
Hastings Man Raises Point Sot Before
HASTINGS, Neb., Jan. o.-fSpecial.V-The
municipal campaign has started off with
a discussion as to whether or not an elec
tion, can be legally held this year. The
question la of more than local Importance
for the reason that Its solution will prob
ably have a bearing on city elections in
several other towns.
The charter under which the Hastings
government Is operating applies alike to
Grand Island, Fremont, Kearney, Nebraska
City, Plattsmouth and one or two other
towns. Under the nrocedure. which h
been followed for many years, elections for
cny omciais would be held next spring In
Hastings, Nebraska City and Plattsmouth.
The section of the charter which is now
being subjected to scrutiny nrnvMeri e
the election of a mayor, a clerk, a treasure
and a police Judge at "the first annual
election, ana biennially thereafter. Tha
City did not hold a general election the
year the law became effective, the person
who were serving at that time h.i
allowed to hold over. Only the police judge
was elected. The practice ha been fol
lowed ever since, bringing the election or
administrative officers one year and the
election of police Judge In another. The
situation Is said to be the same In Platts
mouth and Nebraska Cltv. while i the
other towns which come under the charter,
ine elections are held in strict accordance
with the provision. . .v
Attorneys who have Investlcateit the
matter are of the opinion that the .Hni.i..
tratlve officers and the police Judge should
oe eieciea at the same time and that a
the term of the Judge does not nir n.n
next year there can be no election next
spring ror other officials. The police Judge
Is a constitutional officer anri ii..
decisions of the supreme court the term
cannot be changed. It Is argued that the
only thing left to do la to ma It - the ....... -
of the mayor and other administrative
uiucers coniorm to that of the Judge.
