ALMA MAN MUST PAY UP
"hallenberger Held by Supreme Co art
a Responsible for Note
A. C. Bhallenberger. democratic candi
date for governor, arrived In Omaha Friday
morning. 8 multaneously there arrived the
news that the supreme court of Nebraska
has Just ruled that Mr. Shallenberger must
pay an obligation which he tried to escape
on a technicality.
The Judgment of the lower court Is re
versed and the case remanded. The Home
Savings bank of Fremont was the appel
lant who won in the supreme court. The
bank had brought an action upon a written
guaranty of a note for $S30.O5, made In
1902 by W. P. Summers, Sheely & Rogers
being the payees.
Mr. Shallenberger guaranteed the pay
ment of the note, which was secured by
a chattel mortgage. In July, 1903, Mr. Shal
lenberger sent a draft by mall to the bank
to pay the note. The note was returned to
him, the bank first erasing the endorse
ment of Sheely & Rogers, together with the
mortgage. Mr. Shallenberger stopped pay
ment on the draft, alleging that the bank
failed to protect the chattel mortgage secur
ing the note, which had been lost through
tta.ncgfect. The supreme court holds that
the erasure of the endorsement did not in
jure the defendant.
Mr. Shallenberger arrived at 10 a. 111., de
posited his- grip at the Paxton and tn a
few minutes left for Springfield, where ho
made an address this afternoon. He is ex
pected back at 5 o'clock.
The variety i.f Tanoj and Va?h Vest
