(Krom a Staff Correspondent )
UNCOL.N, May 17.-8peclal.)-The su
preme court this morning affirmed the
decision of the lower court In the esse
r-f the Rohrbough Business college of
Omaha to the effect that the college ia a
ehoot and In therefore permitted to deduct
from Its value for assessment put poses
that part used exclusively for school pur
poses. The court also found for the Van Dorn
Iron Works, which "sued for a balance dua
on steel cells placed in the state peniten
tiary. The auditor refused to issue the
warrant because the company had failed
to put In sewer connections in six of the
cells, though the board allowed the bill and
passed favorably upon the work done.
William A. flmmoni, who brought habeas
corpus proceedings, was ordered released
after an attack on the dipsomaniac law
under whose provisions he had been sent
to the asylum. The court did not pass
upon the constitutionality of the law.
Wester talon Moat Pay
Tha Western Union Telegraph company,
which sought to enjoin the collection of an
Increased tax levied by reason of an in
crease ordered by the County Board of
Equalization on Its property, according to
tbs supreme court, sought to secure relief
by the wrong methods and therefore or
dered the Judgment of the district court
reversed and the cause dismissed.
In May, 1904, tha county assessor of Doug
Ins county gave to the company's officials
a blank upon which to make out the
company's assessment. This was returned
with the personal property valued at $20,
?S.Sfl and the gross receipts at $27,092 29.
The two Items made a total "personal" val
uation of $4T.1.19. The county board
served the company with a notice-to show
cause why Its assessment should not be
Increased. After a hearing the assess
ment was placed at $77.9X1 and the as
sessed value of the personal property was
extended on the records at $15,464 Instead ot
$9,440, aa returned by the assessor. The tax
against the company was $477. The com
pany offered to pay taxes on Its tangible
property, $20,2fl(i.90. This sum was refused
and an Injunction was asked for to re
strain the county from collecting any more
taxes thai was tendered. After a hearing
the Injunction was granted. In reversing
the case Commissioner Ames said:
"An action in equity will not He when
the plaintiff has a plain, adequate and
speedy remedy at law."
He also held It la right and proper to
take Into consideration tha gross receipts
in arriving at tha value of a franchise.
Mrs. Ogden leasee laaarssee,
The supreme court has reversed the de
cision of the district court of Douglas
county In the case wherein Mrs. Mable P.
Ortgen, widow of the late Charles Ogden,
secured a verdict against the Woodmen
of the World for 2,000, the amount of a
policy carried In the order by the deceased.
It was shown Ogden failed to pay an as
sessment levied for the month of November.
He died, the following January. The widow
brought suit, allaglng that her husband
was In good standing and denying the
legality of the assessment, as It was made
by the , sovereign, commander and the fl
nande "commit tee rattier than by tha sov
ereign camp. The court holds under the
laws of ,fhe order an assessment Is due snd
payable each month unless remitted and
consequently the deceased waa not a mem
ber In good standing at the time of his
death. The case was remanded.
In affirming the decision of the lower
court of Douglaa county In the case of
Bertha Getsschmann et si against the
county commissioners of Douglas county,
the court holds that when rjval news
papers set up a claim for county printing
and the commissioners after a hearing in
good faith award the same to on of the
paper, a Court of equity will not Interfere
by Injunction to restrain or control Its
action. Tha plaintiffs sought to secure
the printing of the delinquent tax list of
the county and two rival papers secured
the work after a hearing as to the ability
of the papers to come up to the require
ments of the law governing such publica
tions. The board of commissioners was sus
tained. Road Moat Pay for Streets.
The Omaha Bridge and Terminal com
pany will have to pay the city of South
Omaha nominal damages for condemning
Its streets and alleys for the purpose of
laying tracks. The case Is reversed. When
t(te railroad company and the city council
could not get together on an agreement as
to what damages should be paid the clly,
the company condemned the property and
the district court allowed the town $3 dam
ages. Tha supreme court holds the city
has tha same property Interests in its
streets as a private party has in his prop
erty and should be treated the same.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Neb., May 17.-(Specal Tele
gram.) The next encampment of the Grand
Army of the Republic will be held In Fre-'
mont. This wss decided at the business
meeting of the veterans this afternoon, al
most unanimously. A big fight on the part
of Lincoln had been anticipated but failed
to materialize, as nearly all of the veterans
resent what they think scant attention
paid to them by the citlxens and business
men of Lincoln and the opposition to the
capital was almost unanimous. Because
of this when the motion waa made to.
hold the next encampment In Fremont
went through with a whoop. Lincoln was
not even mentioned, though at one time
this town hoped to be the permanent meet
ing place of the old soldiers.
The following officers were elected: J.
R. Maxon of Mlnden, department com
mander; John F. Dienen of Syracuse, senior
vice commander; Jonathan Edwards of
Omaha, Junior vice commander f L. 8. Sales
of Geneva, chaplain; W. H. Johnson of
Lincoln, medical director.
The only fight was on the election of a
department commander and it required four
ballots to settle this controversy. The
others voted for were General Gage of
Lincoln and FJ1 Barnes of Grand Island.
Gage was second In the running.
Tomorrow another business session will be
held and the remainder of the officers
Tonight a camp fire was held at the Audi
torium and a packed house wss In attend
ance. Commander-in-Chief Tanner, Gov
ernor Mickey, Mrs. Abble Adams and others
spoke and patriotic songs were sung by the
Parade at Veterans.
Inspired by the deeds of forty years
ago, grisxled war veterans, many scarcely
able to walk alone, some with an arm
or leg missing as a reminder of the war,
marched through the streets of Lincoln
this morning, greeted everywhere by
crowds which generously cheered the lit
tle remnant of a gallant band. The oc
casion was the second day of the encamp
ment of the Grand Army of the Republic.
The exercises were a lesson In patriot
ism. The high school children marched
In a body to the Auditorium and the old
and the new Joined lit singing patriotic
songs snd In listening to patriotic ad
dresses. A beautiful flag was presented to
the high school by Mrs. Jennie Bryant
on behalf of the Women's Relief Corps.
Then there were speeches by Commander-in-Chief
Tanner; Mrs. Abble Adama. pres
ident of the Nstlonal Women's Relief
Corps. Department Commander Lett and
