LINCOLN,, April JO. t8peclal.) William
A. Faxton and ethers, defendants In the
Hartley bond case. In which the supreme
court haa recently icranted a rehearing upon
g the application of the attorney general, to-
7Vday filed a motion In the court to vacate
he order granting a rehearing of the mo
I tlon to quash the bill of exceptions; for
'J ' an order denying the motion for a rehear
ing, andfor Judgment adhering to the or
der quashing the bill of exceptions and
, affirming the Judgment of the lower court
and argument In support thereof.
The last time the supreme court passed
upon this case It held for the bondsmen
on the ground that the bill of exceptions
had not been properly authenticated by the
district clerk and sustained the motion of
the defendants to quash. Attorney General
Brown filed a motion for a rehearing and
this was granted. The motion and brief
filed by the defendants this morning Is In
opposition to this order for a rehenrlng.
The hill of exceptions came to the u
prcme court In two volume, and volume
2 did not contain the signature and en
dorsement of the lower court, as did the
first volume. Because of thla the defend
ants asked that the proceedings be quashed
and their contention was upheld.
Trnable for Burllnaton Road.
The llurlington is having a hard time
extending Its yards to what used to be the
tewn of Manchester. Jud;;e Waters duea
not know whether he ought to take the
Burlington's money for the rlght-of-wuy
or libt. In the plana for enlarging the
yards west cf the city, It has become nec
eGsary for the company to acquire title to
H Jarg rrumber of lots In what was once the
town of Manchester. This Is located sev-
ral miles went cf the postnffice. At one
rr 'iiirie a Slice mciory was duih mere ami
-a number of houses erected to house tho
, operative.-). One day a ,blg windstorm came
; along a-nd the factory sank to pieces. That
j was the end of the town.
When soma speculators discovered that
, the town lots were needed by the railroad
i company they formed nr little pool and
bought the equity of one Gobel In 159 of
the lots for $jX. Gobel had tried to get
'the' Burlington to give him $700, but the
right-of-way men refused. A few days
ago the railroad company had Judge Wat
era appoint appraisers to fix a value on
tho lots. The appraisers figured that 9
npleco was about the right figure. Theu
there appeared cn the scene W. E. Stew
cit. representing the syndicate. Mr. Slew
art asked, that the appraisers decide
Just how much was coming to each person
Interested In the lots. This brought to
light enough complications to make a Phil
adelphia lawyer sit up and take notice.
On some, of the Jots mechanic's Uena were
r found. On others there was a mortgage
which had been paid, but which the mort
gagee will not release unless he Is paid
something to reimburse him for losses on
the d-al. On all of them there are unpaid
taxes ranging from $5 a lot to $8. Mr.
Stewart appealed to Judpe Waters and the
Ju'dge held that he could not receive the
money until the appraisers said to whom
r it jifl9Pgeq. His, junction, ne new, is
" merely to receive the money and turn It
1 over to the parMes decreed to be entitled
! r to It, but the appraisers hold that all they
, have to do la to fix the value of the lots
nnd thnt they are not required to ait aa
l Judges passing upon Hens of sundry clalm-
l' Tlrt ra'lnnil tin thlrtv rinva in vrhlfh in
pay ever the money and the owners of the
property sixty daya In which to appeal.
After the Judge accepts the money the
railroad Is free to go ahead, but It can
not do so until he does take It. There are
H"gal remedies to get around thla, however.
The Judge Is hesltaltng about the matter
V 'l borause he docs not wish to pay out the
money to the wrong person. The courts
have decided that the person who owna
property or hna n rlsht therein Is entitled
to get Ms money therefor and. cannot be
d-prlved of It by mistake or otherwise.
Mr, Stewart filed a protest to the whole
proceeding nrd this came .near resulting
In a scene. The protest waa filed with one
cf the Judge's clerks and the Judge refuaed

Judge Watere told Mr. Stewart that he
could not file his papers.
"But I have filed It." aald Mr. Stewart,
"and 1 don't care what you do with It
"Well, thla Is Just what I will do with
It," replied Judge Waters, and he there

Stewart, that you cannot address thla

Prlntla- Firms la Conslie,
Developments since the opening of bids
for state printing last Saturday Indicate
pointedly that the Omaha and Lincoln big
firms which filed bids were In a combine
to secure the work at high prices. In a
burst of confidence Saturday night Tim
Sedgwick of York told th story of the com
bine and as proof of hla statement dis
played his original bids which he brought
with him from York, and on the same
paper, written with pen and Ink, waa the
bids fixed for him at a conference of the
big printers. These combine bids were In
some Instances 100 per cent higher than the
bids which Sedgwick had himself prepared.
The State Journal company was the low
est bidder only on one Job, that of re
printing the supreme court reports, seven
volumes. The Journal bid 87 cents a page
for this work. The state furnlshea the
plates and the Journal will only have to the
work and furnish the paper. Thla Job
will amount to between 14,000 and $7,000.
Inasmuch aa the combine la ao apparent,
however, there is little doubt but that
the printing board will turn down this
bid, and falling to get the work done
cheaper In the state, It will have to be done
The members of the board feel that Claflln
and Howard will be unable to do all the
work on which their bids were the lowest,
but the evidence of the combine Is so strong
the board may lend every possible as
distance to these email firms ao they can
deliver the goods.
It Is not Improbable also that criminal
proceedings will be started against the
State Journal, North Co., Benton Bros.,
Gillespie & Phillips, Woodruff-Collins and
the Klopp-Bartlett company. Benton Broa.
had In only one bid on the big stuff, but It
was the lowest bid of any of the big con
cerns, and as the firm signed the protest
against allowing Claflln to withdraw his
bids, the firm will be made a defendant
should proceedtnga be started.
It la reliably stated none of the firms
which had In bids will assist Claflln and
Howard on their Jobs. Without outside
help It will be Impossible for these firms
to do the work, as each has a small plant,
but the board Is In sympathy with them,
and It may be some other small firms will
volunteer to help them at a reasonable
profit, and the big firms will not have the
satisfaction of seeing them rained finan
cing", as, of course, when they sign the
contract to do the work they will be com
pelled to file a bond to Insure the state.
Members of the printing board Intend to
tske the matter up with the legal depart
ment of the state to see If proceedings
cannot be started.
Meters' Senteaec Commuted.
Governor Mickey thla afternoon com
muted the aentence of Frank Melera, sen
tenced to the penitentiary for one year on
a charge of stealing sheep. The trial Judge
and others asked that hla sentence be
shortened. Attached to the commutation
waa a pledge which Meiers algned not to
drink any Intoxicating liquors, and a fail
ure on his part to live up to the pledge
means the suspension of his commutation,
providing such action could be taken.
Nebraska Companies Lose Little.
None of Yhe Nebraska Insurance com
panies were hard hit by reason of the San
Francisco earthquake and fire. This morn
ing Insurance Deputy Pierce received a
report from the following companies ahow.
Ing how much they were liable for by rea
son of the calamity: Farmers and Mer
chants, net liability $1,000. The Nebraska
Underwriters had a liability of 1750 of rein
surance. The State Insurance company of
Omaha carried two risks, amounting to
$2,IW. This company haa not yet been In
formed whether Its risks were destroyed
but the official presumes such Is the case
and counts that much money gone.

PIERCE. Neb.. April 80. (Special.) At
recent sitting of district court Judge
Boyd decided one case that was of great
Importance to the city. For several years
the city council has been trying to annex
territory on the northeast, containing the
mill property, and territory on the south
west which Is residence property. The
owners have contended that they should
not be forced to come into the city limits
because they were not deriving any bene
fits from the city. In their petition they
set up that they were ao far out that In
caae of fire they could not receive any
beneflta from the fire company or the
hydrants. The fire company offered to
make a trial and Judge Boyd ordered ffiat
it be made. The company made the at
tempt and proved to the satisfaction of
the Judge that they could get to the mill
In short order and were able to fight
fire successfully. The Judge complimented
the boys on the good showing made and
said we had a good system of water
works. He decided that all the property
should be taken into the town except
the extreme southwest portion, which he
thought was a little too far out to be an
nexed at the present time.
