The trtsl of the suit of Benjamin Doug
las. ,1r., for himself and the other heirs
nf the late Benjamin Douglas, sr., founder
of Dun's Mercantile agency, against F.
C. and E. II Louge of this city, wae
begun yesterday In the district tourt be
fore Judge Wheeler.
The plaintiff asserts that the defendants,
who until recently were In partnership
under the Ann name of Lougee & Lougee.
after having acted and wlrile acting as
agents for Benjamin Douglas, sr . and the
plaintiff In the handling of about 2.600
acres of valuable land In Pottawattamie,
Harrison. Shelby and Mills counties, pur
chased the Interests of the plaintiff and
other heirs of Benjamin Douglas, sr., nt
a price far below Its actual altie; It Is
alleged that the defendants represented
that the land was worth only about $26
to $30 an acre, when in fact. It was worth
considerably more and was subsequently
resold by the defendants for $40,000 more
than they paid for It to the Douglas
The transaction complained of took place
in the latter part of 1887, when Lougee
A Lougee bought a five-sevenths Interest
in the land from the holrs of Benjamin
Douglas, sr., the other two-sevenths being
purchased by Day A Hess, also of this
city. Considerable litigation ensued before
the title of the purchasers was estab
lished. In his petition tha plaintiff as
serts that Lougee A Lougee did not act
In good faith In the transaction Inasmuch
as they had been handling the land for a
long period for Benjamin Douglas, sr.,
and hla heirs and were consequently
thoroughly conversant with Its actual
value and knew that Its value was far
in excess of the price stated by them
to the owners, who. It Is alleged, were
not conversant with property values In
this seotlon of the country.
Lougee A Lougee responded by filing
a counter claim for $40,000 damages for
the alleged malicious commencement of
the action for $7,500, which It waa as
serted the plaintiff had wrongfully con
verted to his own use out of the proceeds
of the sale of land In Santa Barbara, Cal.,
belonging to. tbe estate of his father and
which it waa asserted should have been
paid over to them In satisfaction of a
Hen of $20,000 which they assumed when
purchasing the Interest of the heirs In
the Iowa land. Tha defendants denied
that the allegations contained in the
plaintiff's petition were true and that they
have correspondence to show that they
are not ao. They also deny that they
were at any time agents for Benjamin
Douglas, Jr., or any of tha other heirs.
The counter claim for $40,000 damages
for defamation of character was soma
time ago stricken from the suit on a de
murrer filed by the plaintiff and sustained
by the court.
The hearing, owing to the mass of cor
respondence which will be Introduced by
the defense, la expected to last several

IxmiIs Jensen, who essayed to run a ss
loon at Cut-off lake without gning through
the formality of securing a prrmTt from the
city authorities or securing any license
but that Issued by the government, has
discovered that It was an exceedingly costiy
thing to do. Jensen was arrested after he
had been operating his saloon for about
three months and his stork of liquors was
seised and brought to, this city by Con
stable Baker nf Justice Gardiner's court
under a search warrant. He waa also In
dicted by the grand Jury on the chaise of
conducting a saloon contrary to law.
In district court yesterdsy .Jensen en
tered a plea of not guilty to the Indictment
and was fined 1:00 and costs. In order to
square himself with the county and city
authorities Jensen had since his arrest
paid the mulct tax and city license for
seven months from October 1 last, and
County Attorney Hess figured yesterday
that in all Jensen had been obliged to
pay about $!00 to square matters. On
payment ot the mulct tax and city license
Jensen was given back ilia atvik of liquors
and the city council recently granted him
a permit to conduct hla saloon at Cul-03.

In behalf of the stricken people In south

thousands, of them have been blotted out.
Populous villages and towns have been
overwhelmed by the eruption of Vesuvius.
Those affected are chiefly poor peasants.
Many Americans who have witnessed the
courage and hard work -of these people liv

wish to prove their sympathy In a practical
fashion. We ask you to oppolnt a commit

No Antl-Sanday Amasemeut Bill.
In answer to a number of Inquiries as
to whether the state legislature at Its re
rent session had passed any bill prohibiting
Sunday amusementa of any character. Sen
ator Saunders stated yesterday that It had
not. The bill originating In the senate,
which prohibited all klnda of amusements,
Including base ball, passed the senate and
was messaged to the house but recalled
before It had been acted en and then died
a natural death In the committee to which
It was referred. Another bill, which pro
vided for the closing of all theaters and
show houses on the Sabbath, got lost In
the sifting committee. Bomehow or another
the Impression prevailed In this city that
a bill prohibiting Sunday amusements had
been passed by the recent legislature, and
the announcement that none did will be
relief to a number of those Interested.
