Legislator Talk Politic.
Representatives Davis of Buffalo county
and Doran of Garfield county were In Lin
coln last night, the former on his way to
Omaha on business and the latter on his
way to Iowa to visit his brother, who is
a member of the Iowa legislature,
Mr. Davis said he was not one of the two
members of the legislature who returned
railroad passes for the good and sufficient
reason he had not received such courtesies
for the present year. The Vnlon Pncltlo,
said Mr. . Davis, did not send him passes
last year, even though he was a member of
the legislature. When the legislature ad
journed Mr. Davis was one of the members
who paid his own way home, though he
had a pass in his pocket. After the repub
lican state convention Mr. Davis returned
his annuals. He did this though he had not
ridden on any of them after the legislature

said the Cass county man. "whether It bo
governor, railroad commissioner or what
not. But the fact Is I don't believe he wants
anything. He is down on his Mississippi
plantation living easily and attending to
his own affairs and he don't care anything
about political honors. Sheldon Is a Ann
young man and worthy of anything the
people can give him."
Argument on Woodmen Case.

for County Clerk Drexel of Douglas county.
that the state had no right to ask for a
mandamus to compel him to Include lh the

order, but the proper procedure would be
an appeal from the action of the county
board, was argued before the supreme court
this afternoon. Deputy Attorney General
Thompson argued ' the appeal from the
county board was not the exclusive pro
cedure. Tho board, as an assessing board,
he said, had ceased to exist when the writ
of mandanfus was asked for, and further
he said it was the right of the authorities
to proceed by mandamus to compel the
county clerk to rectify any mistake made
against the property of any person after
the county board had adjourned and ceased
to exist as an assessing board.
Briefs In Charter Case.
The Omaha charter case, wherein John T.
Cathers seeks to prevent by Injunction the
consolidation of the offices of county and
city treasurers, has been submitted to the
supreme court on briefs. City Attorney
Breen and Assistant Attorney Herdman,
for the charter, and Carl Herring, repre
senting the school board, and Frank Ran
som, appearing for Cathers, were all here
today to argue the case, but as none of J
them were here yesterday when the docket
was called the Judges merely took the case
on briefs. As the three briefs of the out
side attorneys together make a pile a
large as the one died bv the city attorney
and his assistant all agreed to let the case
go without argument.

ance is not correct and will refuse to take
them unless they are voted again at a
special election. The notice for the election
did not contain the location of the polling
places and the company holds this In
validates the bonds. Representative Ferrar,
with a committee from Grand Island, ap
peared before the auditor today to show
him the history of the bonds was correct
and legal, but the matter Is still under
advisement. The committee asserts inas
much a the bond election was held the
same day as the general election and the
county clerk had advertised the polling
places for that election it was not neces

who favored the Issuance of the bonds fear
they would not carry at another election.
