BROKERS OUT OF BUSINESS
Ticket Softlpsn Enjoinsd from Dealing ia
Bailroad Transportation in Nebraska.
JJOGE CARLAND HANDS DOWN DECISION
iffvct la to Tat tbe Mea 'bo Demi
la Ticket Oat mt Tola
Line ! Bread
Judgs Carland handed down his decision
Saturday morning In the United Htatei
'circuit court granting a temporary In
junction asked by the railroads against
the ticket brokers from In future buying.
Belling, or In any way dealing in special
rate or nontransferable railway tickets
In this state. The effect of thu decision
Is practically to throw the ticket brokers
out of business In Omaha.
The suit was brought Jointly by the
Union Pacific, Illinois Central, Burling
ton, Wabash, Great Western, Missouri
rnclflc, Ilock Island and Milwaukee rail,
roads against P. It. Phllbln, J. J. Phllbln,
Ed J. Murphy, Carl A. Larseu, David
Johnson, Harry R. Macauley, J. Kdgar
Campbell, James C. Martin and Claude
Burnett, ticket brokers of Omaha and
Lincoln and the several ticket brokers
associations doing business In Nebraska.
The contention of the ticket brokers was
that the sale ana purchase of tickets
was made with the full knowledge and
In some Instances in collusion with the
railroads and had been uninterruptedly
practiced In this state for thirty years
and that to enjoin the brokers from the
further handling of the unused portions
of tickets meant a destruction of tbelr
Claim of the Railroads.
The railroads held, on the other band, that
the ticket brokers were irresponsible, had
not a dollar Invested In their business and
smply Interfered between the railroads and
their patrons, and that they were In the
habit of signing . the names of other per
sons than the original purchasers to tick
ets requiring signatures and which were
sold to the original purchaser with the dis
tinct contract that the ticket was not
transferable. Denial was also made that
the Western Traflld association was an or
ganization In violation of the Sherman anti
trust and the interstate commerce laws.
The further claim was made by the rail
roads that the railroad companies had over
$1,000,000,000 Invested In their properties and
business and that the invasion of their
business by the ticket broken was an un
Judge Carland delivered his decision from
notes and generally sustained the allega
tions made in the bill of complaint by the
railroads. He held that it was wholly im
material whether the Western Trafflo as
sociation was an illegal body or not, that
the bill on the part of the railroads was a
good cause of action and that the case was
not being heard upon the affidavits sub
mitted by the defendants showing collusion
at some former time by the railroads.
K Potase Interference.
The declson prohibits the ticket brokers
from Interfering in the future with the
business of the railroads. A proviso is
made in the decision that the , railroads
shall give bond to Indemnify the brokers
for any loss they may sustain from tickets
that they may now have on hand that were
procured from the railroads or from any
other legitimate source.
While the exact amount of the bond has
not yet been fixed, It Is thought it will be
placed at $2,600 la each case which the
railroads agree to furnish at once.
This decision Is similar to like cases
recently decided In tbe federal courts in
Utah, Colorado, Louisiana, Texas and
many eastern states.
Just what action the attorneys for the
brokers will take is not' yet definitely de
cided upon. A similar case is now pending
in the United States supreme court on np
peal froHi the Fifth United States Judicial
circuit and a decision is expected in that
case in December. It Is therefore possiblo
that no further action will be taken In
Omaha until the hearing on the application
for a permanent injunction, which will
not be for several months, or until the
attorneys gather what testimony may be
necessary for the trial of the case.
Ip Against It Hard.
P. II. Phllbln. the leading ' ticket broker
of Omaha, said:
"We are, of course, up against It hard,
Juct as we have been since the granting
of the restraining order June 19. We sim
ply will have to quit business until the
matter Is settled on the hearing of the
permanent injunction. There is very little
money made In the sale of other than non
transferable tickets and now all the rail
roads will have to do with all tickets will
be to simply stamp them nontransferable.
Our attoineys have not yet decided Just
what Is to be done, and in the meanwhile
we will Just have to shut up shop."

MAYOR IN MIRE0F MYSTERY
Colonel Da hi ma a, Gets Doae of Matne
matlee In Rival Scales la
The contest of rival scale manufacturers
at the city hall before Mayor Dnhlman has
developed Into a purely mathematical prob
lem of complexity and proportions.
-The mayor Is hearing more about frac
tions and the law of averages than It has
been his fortune to ha-e thrust upon him
during his entire previous csreer. Every
demonstration and speech seems to more
thoroughly confute the Issue, but the execu
tive Is bravely permitting the hearing to
go forward and devoting all his working
time to the passionate charge?, counter
charges and disavowals of the scale men.
Mannger Theobold of the Toledo Com
puting Scale company finished a five-hour
attack on the Dayton scale late Thursday
afternoon and Manager Ray Immediately
took up the defense, continuing It Baurday
morning. He declared that his scale simply
computed the fractions of cents, so that
the dealer got the benefit of everything
from a half a cent upwards and the buyer
everything below hnlf a cent. He asserted
this was "commercially correct," and then
followed the same plan ns the dealer In
variably adopts when using the old balance
scales. He made a number of demonstra
tions to back up his contentions and sub
mitted a huge chart of computed fractions
for the guidance of the mayor.
Manager Theobold declared the attacks
made on the Toledo scale were unjust and
that any criticisms that might be made ap
plied to scales no longer made or sold, and
which only by certain Interpretations could
have nny shadow of objectionable features.
Efforts of the Dayton people to put the
Toledo scale on trial alongside their own
were overruled by the mayor.
There is no charge that the Dayton scalo
does not weigh correctly to the ounce. All
the attacks relate solely to the manner of
computing the costs.
BLIND MAN'S WATCH STOLEN
Tons Franklin, Who Tells Time by
Fetllng, Victim of Really
Tom Franklin, known around town as
"Blind Tom," was the victim of a mean
trick Friday evening when some stranger
stole the blind man's watch. Franklin

his timepiece with his fingers. While
holding the watch In his hand Friday
evening some one ran up, ' grabbed the
article and ran. The police are endeavor
ing to locate watch and thief.
