e-Inasinuch as there Is no cane before the

Ftate Hoard of Assessment to levy an a
nessment of the reserve fund of the Wood

able speculation lias been Indulged In here
regarding the statement attributed to the
officials of that order that they bad "ad-H-ance
Information" that the court would
find adversely' to the contention of the
niclal that' the mate has no right to
asses thla fund.
Two weeks ago tlie Woodmen of tho
'World drew first blood in the fight, as the
tourt held against the state In the ::ian
Hamus aiilt brought to compel the coumv
rlork of Douglas county to Include In his
Record the asiwusment of the reserve fund
nf the order. The court held mandamus
was not the. proper' procedure and refused
the writ.' .The court refused to puss upon
the question of the right of the ptate board
o order the assessment made.
No other case of a like jhuracter is be
fore the court. There s p'mdlng' In the
llstrlct court of, Hatpllton county a suit
to test "the right of the county board to
assess the. reserve, fund oOhe Royal High
landers, liut this case has not yet reached
the supreme court. Therefore those In a
position to know say the "advance infor

received Is Just as liable to lie a wrong

law made by Senator Trewln. and made a
plea that the headquarters be moved to

Secure Settlement of Differences from

The controversy between the Pressmen's

printers' strike, has been settled, according
to Information given outihy officers of the
The pressmen contended I Iih a two of their
number dismissed from the shop of the
Omaha Printing company should be r
munerated for the time lost, because their
lack of employment was due to conditions
growing out of the prlntin-s" strike. The
Omaha Printing company declined to ac
cede to the demands. The matter went up
to the national bodies of the Typothetac
and Pressmen. The former decided to com
pensate the nun for the time lost up to the
time of settlement, and It Is understood the
pressmen agreed. Frank Johnson, presi
dent of the Omaha Printing company, says
the settlement was made by the Typothelae
and not by his firm. Further, that the
Typothetae will bear the expense Incurred.
"Our firm' declined to do what waa asked
of us," said Mr. Johnson. "If the Typothe
tae wants to settle. It is all right with us.
We have not takn back the men, and do
not Intend to."
The controversy between the Pressmen's
union and the local Typothetae, which
threatened, to involve the pressjnen .In. the
printers' strike, was up for discussion at
the meeting of the local Pressmen's union
at Labor Temple last night. C H. Galos
kowsky of Kanaas City was eresenl and
there were numerous warm debates, but
nothing would be given out aa to what was
"No definite action was taken at the
meeting." said Mr. Galoskowaky after its
adjournment. "In a day or two the mat
ter wll probably be settled, but there is
nothing yet for me to say. I notice by the
papers the statement is made by the other
side tat the difficulty has been adjusted,
but I have nothing to say further than
that no settlement has been made."
JOHN RYBIN JSB0UND OVER
Albright fa loon Keeper Held for
Raying; Revolvers from Inlted
John Rybin, a saloonkeeper of Albright,
was given a preliminary hearing before
United States Commissioner Anderson
Thursday morning for tne alleged pur
chase of six revolvers from a soldier at
Fort Crook early In February. Rybln was
bound over to the federal grand Jury in
the sum of J500. His defense was that he
did not know that revolvers were govern
ment property, and that he did not know
that it was unlawful to purchase such
things from soldiers. The pistols were re
covered by the government, having been
voluntarily surrendered by Rybln to the
chief of police of South Omaha, upon his
learning that It was against the law to
have them in his possession.
Judge Ben S. Baker, Tho.defended Rybin,
said during the hearing:
"It is not generally known that the pur
chase of arms and clothing and other ar
ticles, belonging to the. government from
soldiers Is a penitentiary offense, and I
wish some of the Omaha papers would give
this fact publicity In ' order to put people
on their guard against Innocently commit
ting a penal offense. According to the stat
utes, it is also an offense to have govern
ment property In one's possession unless
the possessor can conclusively show he
came by the property legally.
"More or less soldiers, or ex-soldiers, are
always in or about Omaha or South Omaha,
and some of these may be but recently dis
charged and . can tell a plausible story
about the property they seek to dispose of
aa being their, own, and the purchasing
party does not always know they are lying
about It." '

M. F. Stanley, county attorney of Hamil
ton county, came in yesterday from

Attorney General Norrta Brown aa the
representative of the- county attorneya of
the state In connection with the railroad
tax cases that have been appealed to the
United States supreme court.
"The motion to advance the case waa, of
course, largely formal, but it la none the
less an Important step in the litigation."
said Mr. Stanley. "The court has its work
laid out for adjournment the. latter part of
April, and unlesi we can get the case ad
vanced immediately the hearing will go
over antil the -fall term. It will be un
usual, at. any rate. If the court gives us a
chance to argue it .at the present term.
"Attorney General Brown came back
with me, but stopped off at Des Moines to
see his mother, who la living there. While
we saw all of the Nebraska delegation at
Wathlngton our visits with them were of
a purely .social character and we had no
chance to talk politics seriously."

during the afternoon.
