"I sea Lancaster county has a candidate

Otoa county has no candidate, but I sup
pose If I.neater Is going to make a fight
to get the congressman, Otoe and the other
counties aa well will have candidates,
though I have heard nothing- definite about
the matter. Otoe county, of course. Is for
Judge Ilnyward, and If he wants to be a
candidate of course he can get the delega
tion. However, I have not heard anything
from Mr. Iiayward relative to his can
didacy. "I havs heard a good deal of talk about
the enactment of a primary election law by
the next legislature and about selecting
candidates by primaries for the coming
election, but down our way the matter
has not taken on much shape. I do not
fully understand Just how the primaries
ara to he carried nut and who Is to Day
the cost, ao am open to conviction In tba
'There Is a lot of talk In our county for
Georgs Sheldon for governor, though can
didates fnf other offices have been dis
cussed very little."

Salt on Old Draft.
For nine long years James Wrlgley of
Boalrlce carried a, draft In the pocket of
his vest,' during which time, two banks,
either of which would have cashed tho
draft, went out of business. Then one
ly. n few years ago, while Wrlgley was
walking down the streets of Lincoln he
felt In tho pocket of that self same vest
which he had on when the check was
given to him and here he found It. Ho
at once took it to a Lincoln bank and
had It sent to the Farmers and Mer
chants bank at Boatrlce for collection.
That bank had long since gone out of
business, so Wrlgley filed a suit. lie lost
In the lower court and the case Is now
pending In the supreme court to which
It was appealed today.
The draft was issued by the Beatrice
institution against the American Ex
change National bank of Lincoln. It wis
delivered to Wrlgley August 10. 1894. The
action to collect waa not brought until
April T, 1903, almost nine years after
the draft had been Issued.
From the date of issue of the draft to
the time the suit was started, the plaintiff
made no effort to cash the draft, and both
the banks went out of business and
wound up their affairs. The check or
draft In question was made out for
Robert Wrlgley, a brother of tha plaintiff,
to pay an account.
The plaintiff put the draft in his vest
pocket and carried it for almost nine
years. The brief statea he knew he had
the check, but neglected to cash it and
finally thought he had cashed it and then
forgot all about It.
In November, 1899, while in Lincoln, he
found tha check In hla pocket and went
to the drawee to cash It. He found tha
drawee bank had sold out to the First
National bank of Lincoln. He presented
the check to this bank, which sent it to
the Beatrice bank for collection. The
Beatrice bank had also gone out of busi
ness. Suit waa filed in the county court of
Gag county, where the defendant was
given a verdict. An appeal was taken to
the district court where again the de
fendant won. The bank asserts the
statute of limitation has run sgalnst the
account and Inasmuch as the plaintiff
made no effort to collect the check for
nine years. It Is his own fault and he
Is not entitled to recover.
Allen Goes to Idaho.
A. B. Allen, secretary to Governor
Mickey, has gone to Idaho on personal
business and will be absent from Lincoln
for a week or ten days. While away Mr.

company to do business In Nebraska, The

cording to Mr. Pierce, It has no license to
do business here. He has requested more
Information regarding the charge that the
company Is doing business and the arrest

Appeals from Verdict of Gallty.
The legal department today filed a brief
in the supreme court In answer to the
brief of William Llvtnghouse. who has ap
pealed from tha Judgment of the district
court of Wayne county, which waa that he
must serve .three years In the state peni
tentiary for a statutory crime committed
on tha person of Maud McRoberts, aged
15 years. Llvtnghouse worked for the step
father of the girl and waa charged by her
with being the father of her child. The
mother of the girl testified at tha trial
that the defendant had offered to make
any settlement she demanded to atralghten
out the matter without getting Into court,
while the stepfather testified to practically
the same thing. A 13-year-old sister of
the girl testified to having seen Living-
house In the room she and her sister oc
cupled on numerous occasions after they
had retired. Llvtnghouse entered a general
denial of the charges against him and dls
pnted the statements of the witnesses for
the state In every particular.
The attorney general holds the Jury
should be competent to Judge who was
telling the truth at the trial and therefore
the Judgment should not be set aside.
Cell Cases Appealed.
The van Dorn Iron works has filed a
brief In the supreme court to get the de
cision of the Lancaster court sustained
In the case wherein the company brought
a mandamus suit to compel the auditor to
draw a warrant to pay it In full for putting
In cells at the state penitentiary.
The auditor refused to Issue the warrant
because the contractors had not connected
six of the cells known as female and
Juvenile cells with the sewer system, as It
had the other cells. The company asserts
this was not specified In the contract and
that not only the state architect had ac
cepted the Job aa done according to the
plans and specifications, but the State
Board of Public Lands and Buildings had
also accepted the work.
The case dates back to the legislature of
1903, which appropriated $80,000 for the con
structlon of 240 steel cells. As soon as the
appropriation was available the state, board
advertised for bids and let the contract to
the Van Dorn company to construct 156
cells at a cost of t9,030. The work was
completed and the Job accepted by the state
board. Auditor Weston, however, refused to
issue the warrant because the appropriation
called for 240 cells. The board again adver
tised for bids and the Van Dorn company
agreed to construct the remaining eighty'
four -cells for tha balance of the appropria'
tion, which had shrunk to 19,982.
; It was agreed that these cells should be
placed on top of the other cells, but there
was not room for all of them, and six cells
had to be placed elsewhere. These six
cells were not connected up with the sewer
and contained no sanitary closets. Because
of this the auditor again refused to draw
the warrant for the balance of the appro
prlation, some $3,238. The company brought
suit for a mandamus to compel him to act
and won In the district court. The state
The company asserted that the matter of
the sewerage In the six cells was left to
the discretion of the board and the bill
making the appropriation had not been vio
