L.INCOLJ4, Neb., Oct. !. (Special.) "If
Nebraska had soma of the laws that the
staid told eaat haa n force we would
surely be called 'pops' and othr names
Jhitended to reflect on our political r.nd
JfuimlntM sense," laid Attorney Oeneral W.
IT. Thompson today after" he had returned
irom , mreitni ui muorneys Bencriii ui
1 Et. Louis. "The meeting was 'ntenscly
Interesting." said Mr. , Thompson, "so
much so that ths officers presant were
hardly able to adjourn long enough for
luncheon. It was a curious Tact that
out of seventeen attorneys general In
attendance five of them were under In
junctions, seme. of them carrying th
weight of as many as nineteen different
order of, that kind, sued out In courts
by corporations to restrain them from
ctlnsj or enforilng laws. One of ' the
number, the attorney general of Minne
sota, expected to be arrested on hla re
turn home for violating an Injunction.
On the whole the officers reported great
progress in the enforcement of laws non
trolling corporations. . The state of Mass
achusetts, according to Its attorney Ren
aBj, has a law which gives a Board of
Control almost absolute power over cor
porations. No corporation in that state
can issue stock without something tangi
ble behind It and the board baa power to
value stock. Wtsoonsln has had no dis
putes between state and federal courts,
because It has a state, law requiring cor
porations that enter the state to do busi
ness to sign a stipulation that they will
not carry suits Into the federal courts.
The Nebraaka legislature last winter
passed such a Uw applying only to cer
tain Insurance companies."

th confirmation of a Ml of tnha prop
erty made to D. CV Patterson, trustee,
March IS, 190S. The tficrM-Included a con
siderable amount of special taxes and as
ftessmenta and th property was bid in by
Patterson for ISO. Ifall became the owner
of ' the equity after the sale and Fred
Selllck was his tenant. Pinal notice to con
firm the sal was served on them December
13, 1904, and the entry In confirmation Is of
record Msrch H 1W.
On March 11 of the February term, the
order confirming the sale was entered and
on the twentieth day of the same month
and term Hall 'filed a motion to set aside
and vacate the confirmation. On March
3 the order of confirmation was vacated.
On April 2, Hall then filed supplemental
objections to the confirmation, stating that
notice was not served on all th occupants
of the land and that the city council of
Omaha, In whom Interests the special
taxes and assessments had been levied, had
passed a resolution directing the tax com
missioner or other official to attend all
sale and bid In the property for the city
where outside bids did not amount to a
certain percentage of the city's interest.
This fact was advertised In the Omaha
papers and was well known to all In
terested people. Ifall intended to bid In
the property and pay much more than
was paid by Patterson,' but the tsx com
missioner had told him that the city would
get much more than fie contemplated and
he did not know of the sale until long
after it had occurred. '
The sale was vacated for review by the
court. Hall depositing 1900 as a guarantee
that he would bid that amount. The 'first
assignment of error Is relative to the trial
court setting aside the confirmation of
sale. The court holds that the power of
the district court .over its own Judgments
during the term at which the Judgment Is
rendered Is discretionary and Is not sub
ject to review.
The decree was by default and by It
the owner was not deprived of the taxes
determined prior to' the. confirmation of
the sale.
Jadguent Against Railroad.
For the third time the supreme court
has handed down an opinion In the csie
of John P. Parkin against the Missouri
Pacific Railway company and has araln
affirmed a Judgment tor 17,488.08 obtained
by the plaintiff liu the district court of
Sarpy county.
This action was based upon a contract
entered Into In 1191 under the terms of
which Perkins was to furnish to the
defendant 50,000 cubic yards of travel for
ballast purposes, the earn to be loaded
on th cars at Springfield and approved
by the defendant's superintendent.
The court holds that a new trial will
not be granted upon the ground of newly
discovered evidence where such evidence
la merely cumulative and would not In
all probability affect the result If a new
trial were granted. It is also held that
th defendant is not entitled to a new
trial upon the ground of surprise, as the
testimony complained of as surprising
could have been brought out Dy ciosb
xaminatlon at any of the previous trills.
Cannot Prohibit Card Playing.
In an opinion the supreme court lays
down the doctrine that a city ot the sec
ond class cannot by ordinance prohibit
Innocent card playing In a place of busi
ness. The power to ' enact and enforce
such an ordinance must be specifically
conferred In the charter of a municipality
and there la no suoh -power conferred In
the charters of cities of the second class.
The case In which this opinion was ren
dered was an application for a writ of
habeaa corpus, the applicant being Martin
L. Sapp of Wymote. He was convicted
of keeping a card table In his place of
business and allowing card games to be
played which was In violation of a city or
dinance.1' Ha applied for a wilt which the
court grants, holding that- there- 4s no
statute prohibiting the table and Innocent
games and that the city cannot In the
absence of specific authority pass and en
force an ordinance such as that at Wj-
more. N '

NORTH PLATTE The civil engineer
who has been employed to lay out . and
plat the new town of Blgnell, about
twelve miles east of this city, state that
his directions are to lay twenty-four
blocks only, and adjoining these flve-asr
tracts will be platted and the rest of the
land bought by the Lincoln Development
company will be divided Into eighty-acre
tracts. This does not Indicate the founda
tion of a town intended to be the dlvll3n
terminal for a railroad Ilk the Burling
ton, and North Platte people do not re
lieve that the Burlington railroad can do
otherwise than locate the division ter
minal, shops and other railroad improve

NORTH VLATTE The Union' Paclflo
railroad Is having a great deal of trouble
with th large quantity of coal which has
been piled here along the switch tracks
In large quantities. Fires from spontane
ous combustion have been repeatedly
breaking out and the rain during the
past few days caused hundreds of such
fires to start In these coal piles. The loss
to the company Is great, not only because
of the amount of coal consumed by the
fires, but because of the- expense of the
great labor required to dig down to the
fires and put them out. The fires always
occur In the lower portion of the piles of
coal. Some SOffO tone of coal have been
stored here, but the fires are becoming of
such great frequency and so much 'trouble
that the railroad company Is offering to
sell the coal to citizens In order to end
. hub uiincuiiy.

NORTH PLATTE Th agents of th
different Insurance companies nave re
ceived from A. G. Beeson of Omaha a
new rat book for North Platte. The In
surance rates contained in this new rat
book are from 20 to 280 per cent higher
than the former rates in vogue in this
eity for several years. In one Instance,
on a business property, the rate mi
raised from $1.85 a hundred to IS. 17 a
hundred. This raise of rates affect only
the business portion of th city, but the
increase is so radical that serious com
plaint Is being made by those affected,
and a number of Insurance agent her
announce that they can and will plave
Insurance at the former rates In non
union Insurance companies. It seem that
only the trust insurance companies are
bound by the new rate. One Insurance
agent her ha made a calculation and
states the loese paid by all insurance
companies during the last twenty years
In North Platte have only been 26 per
cent of the total premiums collected here,
and this Is true in spite of the fact that
there have been a number of serious fires
during that time and one In particular
