County Attorney SUbaneh Baji Filine Tm
Woulil Help Some,
Architect Finds Faalt with Qaallty of
Stone Rather Thaa Contractor
Who Performed Work oa
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
IJNCOLN, April . (Special.) County At
torney Slnbaugh of Douglas county, who
waa her today attending supreme court,
la anxious that the next legislature tlnil
soma legal way whereby a fee can be
charged for filings under the primary elec
tion law.
"Nearly everyon In Omaha was glad
when the aupreme court knocked out that
provision which provided a fee ahould be
charged candidates for filing their names.
But it aoon developed Ulat It would be
much better were the fee charged, even
though It Is only a small fee. Many can
didates announced themselves, because It
cost them nothing and gave them an op
portunity to ret before the public and re
curs free advertinlng.
"Were a fee of only 18 or S10 charged It
would causa a lot of these people to hesl
tats a long time before announcing them
selves. Many of -the candidates do not ex
pect an election and I feel sure they an
nounced themselves merely to get their
names In the papers. This could have been
prevented by a small filing fee. Of course,
the fee made the primary law unpopular,
but the large number of candidates will
also tend to do that unless there la some
way to put a atop to every man who wants
little advertising having his name put
on tha ticket" '
After delivering himself of the above
Judge Blabaugh took a look around the su
preme court rooms and said:
"The newspapers should advocate the
adoption of a constitutional amendment pro
viding for an increase In the pay of state
officers. Just think of It, the attorney gen
eral gets only 12,000 a year. As county
attorney of Douglas county I receive more
salary than that. Parties from other states
who come here and learn we only pay our
attorney general )2,000 wonder If that Is
the caliber of tnen we elect to such offices.
Tha stats of Nebraska should pay Its of
ficers higher salaries."
Kornsal Ballots Rejected.
Tha State Normal school at Kearney Is
not yet ready to be accepted by the State
Normal board, though about all the work
on the building has been completed. Some
time ago the board rejected the building
because Architect Berllnghof refused to re
port that It had coma up to the specifica
tions set out In the contract. The contrac
tors were then given more time in which
to make the changes demanded. Mr. Ber
llnghof will make another report to the
board next Monday and It Is understood
he will again recommend the structure be
rejected. Mr. Berllnghof said the fault was
not so much with the contractors as with
tha men who furnished tha stone for the
building. He will recommend that the
board go after these firms and compel them
to coma up to the specifications. ,
tato Lota Contrasts,
The State Board of Purchase and Sup
plies concluded its work this afternoon. No
coal bids were considered as all the state
Institutions are supplied at this time, loe.
which last ycir was bought for the state-
house for 16 a ton, was contracted for at $10
a ton today. It will be furnished by a
Lincoln firm, which was the only bidder.
Saloon Cases Not Arcstl, -
The Omaha saloon cases were not argued
In the supreme court this morning as had
been anticipated, as none of the lawyers in
terested, who asked for the argument, was
present and the court merely ordered the
case submitted in briefs. This Is the case
In which Elmer E. Thomas, attorney for
the Civic Federation, seeks to have a num
ber of the saloons closed pending a decision
In . a case where he is seeking to have
licenses revoked. One of the questions to
be settled Is who will have to pay for tha
transcript of ths testimony In the bearings
on protests before the Board of Fire and
Police Commissioners.
At the next sitting of the court will be
argued the light of the county assessor of
Douglas county to assess business colleges.
County Attorney Slabaugh holds if these
, commercial colleges are exempt from tax
ation then it will be necessary to exempt
dancing schools and other schools of a like
nature. ' '
Toatla Rlaht of School Board.,
The supreme court has been called upon
to decide whether a school board has the
authority to expel a pupil from a school
without first granting a hearing to the child
and notifying the parents of its contem
plated action. The case has come up from
Merrick county and - It has been In the
courts since 1904, when the school board of
District No. I expelled Edith Englehardt.
John T, Englehardt, father of the girl,
brought mandamus suit and forced the
board to allow the child to attend tha
school. A rehearing was asked for and It
was contended mandamus was not the
proper proceedings and, further, that, the
father of tha girl ahould have appealed to
the courts from the decision of the board

Instead of bringing the mandamus suit. At
torneys for the school bosrd ask that the
decision of the lower court be reversed. The
girl was expelled November 1, 1904. but
went back to school November 16 under
the protection of the mandamus. The father
of the girl contended there should have
been a hearing on the charges brought
against the girl.
Mandamna Against School Board.
Attorney General Brown late this after
noon filed a petition In the supreme court
for a mandamus to compel the Lincoln
Bchool board to permit the children of Gov
ernor Mickey to attend the Lincoln public
schools without paying tuition. The board
has ruled that state officers voting else
where have no legal residence here and
consequently their children must pay tu
itlon as nonresidents. Ths governor has
four children attending school. Several
days ago the board refused to allow them
to continue until the governor paid the
tuition. Other state officers, including the
attorney general, will be affected by ths re
sult of tha suit.

night the Board of Education received three
bids on the recently registered $Hu.0OO 44
per cent high school bond Issue and ac
cepted the bid of Spider A Co., an Ohio
firm, for $314 premium upon a condition

sale of the bonds, sll to be delivered at one
time, brought forth twelve bids. The
bid of N. W. Harris A Co. was at that
time accepted. The attorney for the firm,
however, refused to approve the Issue on
account of alleged trregularillea In the
election. The irregularities referred to
were since referred to the auditor of the
slate, who In turn referred them to At
torney General Brown. The latter found
the objections made Invalid and the aud
itor haa since registered the bonds. The
board then proceeded to advertise for the
second time. Upon the theory that such
a plan would save interest the second ad
vertisement waa for bonds in Installments
of $10,001) at atated periods of about three
months each, the laat falling due in Sep
tember, 1W7, aa to delivery. However, only

that the Installment plan was not very
favorably received by the bond companies.
The Ohio linn bid upon the bonds, de
livery being specified at the atated periods
"or earlier at our (the bldder'a) option."

tion that the firm would make the clause
read to the effect that the option to de
liver earlier would be In the Bchool district
of Grand Island. Adjournment waa made
at the call of the chair and a wire response
