Jndae Onnsron Reverse the Rallnc of
the t'onntr Court.
HASTINGS. Neb.. July 1-lSpeclal Tele
gram. ) The decision of Judge Dungan of
the district court this afternoon in favor
of Van Tatten in the Second ward election
contest leaves the council a tie on the
prohibition question. E. L. Gauvreau. a
supporter of high license, was seated two
weeks ago on order of Judge Ragan, ape
'clal Judge of the county court, before whom
the contest was first tried. Judge Dungan
reversed the decision of Judge Ragan and
Issued a writ of ouster of Gauvreau. The
contest resulted from the effort of the
prohibitionists to elect 1. 8. Rohrer, pres
ident of the Civic federation, to the office
of mayor. No election had been called for
mayor on the theory that an amendment to
the charter by the last legislature left no
authority for such an election this year.
Votes for Rohrer were written on the bal
lots for councilman. Judge Dungan held
that the words and names on the ballots
objected to refuted the Idea that they were
placed thereon with a sinister purpose.
He followed a liberal construction of the
law rather than a strict construction.
Road seeks More Land.
NORTH PLATTE. Neb., July 1. -(Special.)
The Cnlon Pacific has filed a suit
In the circuit court of the United States,
North Platte d vision, attempting to re
cover the outer strip of 1X) feet along the
right-of-way of that road. Tha defendants
named in the case are W. M. Cunning
ham of this rlty, Roy B. Tabor, trustee,
and the City of North Platte. For several
years there has been a controversy over
th s atilp, the railroad contending that
they are entitled to the right-of-way 80
feet In width on each side of the track
and the property owners contending that
the right-of-way Is lawfully but 100 feet
wide on each side of the track. Until re
cently the adjoining property owners have
been In possession of all thla land. The
I'nlon Pacific Railroad company contends
that It Is entitled to this atrip of land by
reason of two acta of congress, the former
passed In 182 and ttje latter being an
amendatory act passed In 18i4. The first
law gave the railroad a right-of-way 200
feet on each side of the track and every
odd numbered section for ten miles on
each side of the track. The second law,
which amended - the first, cut down the
right-of-way to 100 feet on each side of
the track and doubled the number of sec
tions given to the railroad as a bounty.
For many years the railroad never claimed
tl Is uterstrlp of 100 feet and their printed
fotms of deeds excepted a right-of-way of
but 100 feet on each side. The suit which
has been filed here la Instituted as a test
case, and It the railroad wins It Is re
ported that they will use the decision
as a precedent to gain other lands where
circumstances are similar.

FARMERS NOT SELLING GRAIN
Only Reason Why Receipts in Omaha
Are Not Larger.
HIGHER PRICES ARE PAID HERE
Fart that Farmers HaTe Xo Grain to

Dlacoaraalna for Local
Even with the high rrlces paid by tv.e
buyers on the Omaha grain market every
day since January 1. the receipta for the
six months ending Tuesday were t..W
bushels short of the receipts for the same
six months last year on all grains.
The receipts and shipments for June are
about the lightest since the organisation of
the grain market at Omaha. Following Is
the statement Issued Wednesday by the
secretary of the Grain exchange:
Wheat, bushels ! B73.W1 717.0110
Corn, bushels Pt9.4m 77.Oo
Oats, bushels 6.11 .0 637. non

Barley, bushels 6.rm
Total bushels grain. Z.V.i.W 2.0.77,100
Secretary McVann displayed the figures
without any feeling of pessimism.
"It simply means that the farmers have
not the gTaln to sell." he said. "When
Nebraska Is short 80,1X10,000 on the corn crop,
as It was last year, the grain market can
not make the showing which It makes
during years when the state Is overflowing
with surplus grain. Omaha Is undoubtedly
receiving Its usual share of the gTaln pro
duced, but the production was not up to
normal last year for various reasons."

Omaha haa created a market for barley,
the receipts during the six months of 19.'8

"Women Who Wear Well.

few years of married life often make In
the appearance ami disposition of many

of the charming maiden. There are two
reasons for this change, Ignorance and
neglect. Few young women appreciate
the shock to the system through tho
change which comes with marriago and

COUNCIL DOES COARSE JOB
Refuses to Award Advertising to Bee
According to Law.
WORLD-HERALD FAILS TO BID
Oniclal" Paper Goea to Sleep nt the
Switch, hot Nevertheless Ma
jority Rejecta The Bee's
Under the" provisions of the charter the
Omaha Evening- Bee Is entitled to the con
tract for the official advertising of the city
for the coming year. The democratic city
council Is trying Its best to keep The Bee
from getting Its contract and turn It over
to the democratic World-Herald, but Its
work in special session Wednesday morning
was decidedly coarse. The bid of The Bee
was the only one In, notwithstanding the
fact that the notice Inviting proposals had
been printed by the city clerk in the World
Herald as the official paper for three days.
The fact Is that the World-Herald people
were caught napping and the democratic
city council, led by Funkhouser, under
took by rejecting The Bee a bid, after It
was opened, and ordering a readvertlse
ment to save the bacon for the World
Herald. When the council met at 10.39 the bid of
The Bee was opened and read. Councilman
Zlmman made a motion that the contract
be awarded on the grounds of Its being
the lowest bid. Councilman Bedford moved
that It be referred to the committee of the
whole and President Johnson so referred

Then a mighty wordy war ensued, in
