'offerings. We never carry goods over from one season to the next, preferring rather
to start the new season with fresh, new merchandise. For that reason we shall cut
prices deeply Wednesday and all the balance of the week, in order to clear the

LINCOLN. Neb., Dee. 24 (Special T. le
ram.) William Campion, in Jull at S.ward
for child abandonment, who was paidorud
recently by Oovernor Mickey nrt-r con
Tlctlon on a paternity charge, wan anln
pardoned this afterrwii n by the governor
and the pnrdon Is broad enough to cover
two changes and any order to the C( ntrary
which may be Issued by tlm Jurlite of the
district court. The sheriff of the county re
fused to reooRnlEe the rlnlit of the governor
to Issue the pardon In this case and attor
ney! for Campion secured a writ of habeas
corpus from Judge lotion returnable Janu
ary 2, and the prisoner has been released
Under ll.Oot) bornl. The woman In the case
has married since Campion was sent t J ill.
He strenuously denied responsibility. Cam
pion has been li Jull for over thlrten
months rather than Rive bond that he would
pay a Judgment of $1,000 s-eurrd nua'nst
fclm on a paternity charge. The matter was
finally taken before the (rovernnr, who afttr
reviewing the evidence, ordered th" min's
release. The county authorities doubted the
light of the governor to pardon In a s-ml-rlmlnal
case, and he wa then arrested and
convicted on a charge of abandoning tfie
child. A hearing was held on thN today and
the governor issued his second pir.lon' to
InrrMwi nte's I'ostaite.

GRAND ISLAND, Dec. 24. (Speclal.)-A
decision Just rendered In the district court
In this county by Judge Kleder of Columbus
as referee In the case of creditors of the
Mlnton Woodward company, a wholesale
grocery which failed about ten years ago,
haa caused ctmslderable agitation and crit
icism of the lawyers who brought the case.
The decision holds about eight local attor
neys and business men liable as stockhold
ers to make up a deficiency of 13 per cent
not paid by the receiver appointed at tha
time on the claims. The defendants de
clare that the real creditors will never get
a doll.ir of the Judgments and that, in sub
otance. It Is a matter of successful specula
tion rather than one of equity. I cally
about Sl.liofl Is Involved.
A year or more before the failure of the
company Its oflicers solicited a lltt e aid
among Orand Island's business men. These
were Induced to take stock. Among, those
who thus contributed were W. H. Thomp
son, recent candidate for I'nlted States sen
ator; W. A. I'rlnce, a leading attorney, F.
11. Mlehelson. J. II. Foley, Albert Ettlng,
I)r. Hutnner Ihivla and Mrs. Wright, and a
few others who have since left the city and
state. H. H. Glover contributed, but would
not receive stock. J. W. Thompson bought
some of the stock, but escaped by reason of
the fact that the transfers were not a mat
ter of record. When the firm failed, a re
ceiver was duly appointed, the assets were
converted Into money and Just before the
payments of the claims of eastern manufac
turers and Jobbers, two local attorneys are
alleged to have bought up a number of the
claims at 50 cents en the dollar. Out of the
assets all claims were eventually paid SI
cents on the dollar. The receivership wus
wound up with 13 cents on the dollar un
paid. Suit whs then brought by Attorneys
W. S. l'earne, since removed to . Chicago,
and O. A. Abbott. Jr., to recover the 17 per
cent from the stockholders. The latter em
ployed, severally, nearly, every other attor
ney In the city and some of these at once
wrote to the claimants how it came that
after being , paid 87 per cent they still
brought suit for the 13 per cent,, the defend
ants being parties who had not profited In
arty manner from the business of the firm.
Some of them replied that they knew noth
ing at all of the suit brougt In their name;
others stated that they had disposed of
their claims and had no fu ther Interest and
others neglected to answer at all. it thus
became a light between local attorneys only
and the defendants allege that the'real or
iginal claimants will not see a dollar of the
money recovered from the stockholders
on their liability. In the progress of the
hearing ItV was shown that the firm had
failed to comply with the law requiring cor
porations to publish their Indebtedness, once
each year. The case will be appealed to the
supreme court and the attorneys for the de
fendants are confident they will secure a
reversal of the decree there.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 24. The opinion of
the supreme court of the I'nlted States in
the case of the board of education of the
Kentucky annual conference of the Metho
dist Episcopal church against the state of
Illinois, which was handed down today by
Justice MeKenna. was favorable to the
state. The suit grew out of a contention
whether the Illinois law exempting relig
ious and educational Institutions from the
operation of the Inheritance tax law applies
to Institutions outside the state. The state
authorltlea undertook to collect the tax on
a building In Chicago which was devised by
a Kentucky woman to the church In her
state. The Illinois courts held the law was
Intended only for the protection of state
Institutions and did not eover the Ken
tucky bequest. Today's opinion affirmed
In delivering his opinion Justice McKenna
said: "It cannot be said that If a state
exempts bequests to charity from taxation
It is unreasonable or arbitrary to require
the charity to be exercised within Its bor
der and for Its people whether exercised
through persons 4r corporations."

gers injured in yesterday's wreck are being
cared for at a small private hospital and
In 'tho railroad hotel. A coroner's Jury is
Investigating the causes of the wreck. The
engineer of the freight train alleges he had
boen ordered to move out west of the town,
1 where he was to drop off a flagman to stop
the Incoming passenger train. The flagman
testified he went on ahead of the engine
nearly half a mile and not only placed two
torpedoes on the track, but waited and
signalled the passenger train with his lan
tern. He swore no attention was paid to
his lantern signal and ha could not say
whether the torpedoes had exploded. The
night was very foggy and the supposition
Is that the lantern signal was not seen and
that the torpedoes failed to explode.
