(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. March 10. (Special.) State
Treasurer Peter Mortensen will Issue a
statement to the public the tint of the
week announcing his withdrawal from the
J race for the republican nomination for
governor. The attorneys employed by Mr.
Mortensen filed an opinion with him yes
terday that It was impossible for him to
Itet before the court with a cult to teat his
eligibility to hold the office of governor.
Thla determined Mr. Mortensen to with
1 draw from the race, and after a consulta
tion with friend to be held Monday or
Tuesday he will mnke formal announce
' ment of his Intentions.
In the meantime letter have been sent
out by Lieutenant Governor McUllton an
nouncing his candidacy for the place. Some
lawyers "tv,n here seem to think the sec- 1
Hon of the constitution which prohibits
Mr. Mortensen from being eligible to be
governor does not apply to Mr. MeGllton,-(
while others think both are Ineligible.
A meeting will be held here the first of
v the week, at which time It likely will be
decided whether Judge Paul Jesscn or
Senator Oeorge Sheldon will enter the race.
It Is understood should one of these desire
to be a. candidate the other will not enter.
The announcement of C. B. Dempster of
Doa trice Is also expected to be forthcoming
In the near future. The only avowed can
didates at thla time are John Wall, Speaker
Rouse and Lieutenant Oovernor McOtlton.
Attaraar Wants m Rehearing:.
Attorneys for W. L. Newby, whom the
district court of Saline county disbarred
from practicing because It was alleged
. Newby had forged a deed In a legal con
troversy, are In the supreme court, to have
the matter reversed and the charges
quashed. Attorneys for Newby assert
the district court had no right to disbar
Newby from practicing In all the courts of
the state, but that they have a remedy In
criminal proceedings If they desire to prose
cute the attorney.
Y'aa Darn Case Appealed.
Attorney General Norris Brown this
morning filed In the supreme court a brief
in the case wherein the Van Dorn Iron
Works Is seeking to compel Auditor Scarle
to Issue him a warrant for $3,328, alleged
to be due on a contract to construct steel
cells at the state penitentiary. Tne legis
lature appropriated JSO.OCO for the construc
tion of the cells. When all had been com
- pie ted with the exception of connecting
six of them with the sewers, the Board of
Public Lands and Buildings accepted the
Job and ordered the warrant drawn. The
contract called for the connections with
the sewer and therefore the auditor re
fused to allow the bill until the contract
was compiled with. In the lower court the
contractors won out and the State ap
pealed the cases.
Hetaera to Take Charge.
Rev. Mr. Helner and Mrs. Helner, who
founded the Tabltha Home eighteen years
ago and who managed It until last No
vember, when a self-appointed reform com
mittee ousted them and took charge of the
affairs of the home, are shortly again to
come Into their own. After four months
experience in managing the home the com
mittee has come ' to the conclusion that
Ita members have not the ability to carry
the load under which Mr. and Mrs. Helner
struggled for eighteen years and one by
one they' are getting from under.
Miss Sarah Harris, who was a member
of the committee which tried to create pub
llo sentiment against Mr. and Mrs. Helner,
resigned yesterday, as did Prof. Candy
of the State university. Dr. Bailey, who
has been considered a friend of the
Helner. also resigned. Attorney Lamb, on
behalf of Rev. Mr. Helner and other cred
itors of the home, has undertaken the
matter of selecting a new board to manage
the Institution and already Mr. Helner has
been sent out on the road to collect money
for Its maintenance.

EDITOR ETTt.E A I.IBF.L. l IT
W. Hase rays Thomas Shelbley f
- NORFOLK. Neb., March 10. (Special.)
W. N. Huso, editor of the Norfolk Dally
News, has settled out of rourt the libel
stilt for IH.noo filed against him by Thomas
Shelbley of Ponca as the result of an ar
ticle which appeared In the News on the
eve of the first election of J. J. McCarthy
to congress In the Third district. The set
tlement was made In Sioux City this week,
and was announced in the editorial col
limns of the News this afternoon. Accord
ing to the terms of settlement, Mr. Huse
pays the costs of the trial In both district
and supreme courts and pays a stipulated
In the same editorial which announces
that the libel suit has been dismissed by
Mr. Slielbley a keynote Is sounded which
shows that there will be a bitter battle
put up against Mr. McCarthy next sum
mer fop renomlnation to his congressional
office, for which he has announced himself
as a candidate. Mr. Huse, In his open let
ter, gives warning of a vigorous campalgn
whlch will be waged against Mr. McCar
thy by the News, now that It has shaken
off Its lawsuit, and It Is known that the
leading republicans of Norfolk are In sym
pathy with this announcement, and will
also Join In the battle.
The libel suit Is one of a number which
grw out of articles printed by republican
papers In the district on the Saturday be
fore the Tuesday of McCarthy's first elec
tion. When these articles were sent to
the Norfolk editor by Mr. McCarthy's cen
tral committee, the announcement today
slates, the Norfolk editor seriously ques
tioned the propriety of printing them and
protested againBt publishing them.
"Assured by the chairman of McCarthy's
committee that the articles were true, and
accused of dlBloyalty In case they were not
published," says the editorial, "there was
nothing left to do. according to local poli
ticians, who brought pressure to bear, but
print in Order to save McCarthy."
The personal treatment of Mr. Huse by
Mr. McCarthy after the News had been
sued for libel on account of Mr. McCarthy
Is taken up In the editorial at some length
to show why the editor does not believe
that Mr. McCarthy is the man to be re
elected from this district. The article says
that after the libel suit was filed Mr. Mc
Carthy never called at the News office to
discuss the matter, never uttered one word
In regard to the case of the defendant,
made It a point to dodge from a conver
sation, and, further, when it was sug
gested to him that he ought. In fairness
to the newspaper, to stand a portion of
the expense of trial, It is said In the ar
ticle that Mr. McCarthy Is quoted as hav
ing declared: "I do not propose to stand
responsible for the vaporlngs of every
damned fcol newspaper man in the state."
He did, however, on the eve of his second
election. Issue a check for 2no to pay a
portion of the expenses Incurred.
The editorial closes with this paragraph:
It Is to be hoped that the republicans of
the district will this year place a candi
date In nomination who will not need such
defense that his supporters will become
Involved In libel suits as a penalty for help
ing him, and then be met with cold-blooded
Ingratitude and told that he Is a "damned
fool." I am even willing to admit that
I was that kind of a fool for supporting
McCarthy, but I hope never to be guilty
of a like transgression again.

TRAINS COLLIDE IJf BLIZZARD
Barllaa-toa Passenger and Freight
Meet oa Track Sear Sidney.
-SIDNEY, Neb., March 10. (Special Tele
gram.) A head-on collision on the Burling
ton occurred this evening between Marlow
and Dalton, twelve miles north of Bidney.
Owing to a severe snowstorm and heavy,
blizzard and bad working of wires only
meager details can be furnished. Passen
ger train No. 101 was running nearly twelve
hours late and fast freight No. 304 had
orders against them, but the orders were
evidently misunderstood and both trains
met on the main track. The fireman of
the passenger train was killed and the
two engineers are seriously Injured. Some
of the passengers were hurt, but not seri
ously. This is the first time any mishap
has occurred on this division, as It is one of
the best built feeders the Burlington owns.
The names of the fireman and engineers
could not be learned. Coroner Bassett and
County Physician 8towltts left on a special
train for the scene of the disaster.

SIOUX FALLS, S. D.. March 10.-l8pe-cial.)
The authorities of Butte county, sit
uated In the extreme northwestern portion
of South Dakota, after persistent efforts,
have thus far been baffled in their at
tempts to solve a mystery of the range.
Butte county is in the great cattle range
section of the state and is occupied largely
by the herds of cattlemen.. The mystery
which the au.norltiea are endeavoring to
solve is as to who was responsible for the
death of Hy Young, an Englishman with
high connections in England, whose re
mains were found near the ranch estab
lished by him in Butte county.
Young severs years ago arrived In Butte
county with a small herd of horses, which
he ranged along Grand river and In the
"breaks" back from that stream. As a
motive for his assassination It is said that
he became possessed of information which
would case trouble to parties in that
region If divulged to the authorities. It
has been learned that shortly before the
disappearance of Young from the neigh
borhood some of these parties formed a
posse with the Intention of proceeding to
Young's home and killing him. They en
deavored to work up sentiment against
him, claiming he was a menace to the
The Englishman had in the meantime
heard of the proposed visit, and, gathering
a party of friends, awaited the coming, of
the lynching party. Some of the posse,
after reaching a point about 200 yards
from Toung's cabin, refused to proceed
any farther and the posse stopped for a
The men in the cabin with Young could
see them and wanted to open fire upop
them, but were restrained by Young, who,
having nothing to fear from the law, did
not wish to kill anyone unnecessarily.
Merry Costa Life.
His mercy cost him his life some days
later. After the danger of the lynchlmr
had passed Young visited Healey, the post
office of that vicinity, and in conversa
tion with a storekeeper there told him o'
the affair, saying that he. had Identified
the members of the posse. Young In
formed the storekeeper that his (Young's!
life was In danger and that his Intention
was to gather up his horses and leave tho
country. He stated he would start the
work of rounding up his horses In a few
The following day Young commenced this
