(From' a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Nov. . (Special.) The rev
enue law of Nebraska, which permits,
under the interpretation of the supreme
court, a taxpayer to deduct his , bona
fide debts from his gross credits. Is not
unconstitutional or 'in conflict with sec
tion 1, article 9, of the constitution. This
Is the holding: of the supreme court on a
motion for a rehearing in the case of
the Scandinavian Mutual Aid association
against Kearney county, the latter being
defendant and appellant.
Because the present revenue law pro
vides for the assessment of net credits
rather than, gross credits, the defendant
alleged that It Is unconstitutional, the
constitution providing for a tax by val
uation so that every person shall pay a
tax in proportion to the value of his
property, the value to be ascertained In
such manner as the legislature shall di
rect. Ths defendant urged that allowing
debts to be set off or deducted from gross
credits In effect permits such portion
of the gross credits as equalled the tax
payers' debts to be released from assess
ment and taxation and results in levying
taxes unequal upon the taxable property
In the state. ' .
Such a construction of the constitution

was never contemplated by its framers,
says the court. If tho taxpayers were
not allowed to offset bona fide debts
from gross credits, it would result in
compelling him to pay taxes in some in
stances of man ytimes the value of the
net worth of the taxpayer. It would re
sult in requiring every bank to pay taxes
upon several thlmes the value of Its cap
ital stock and would practically result In
bankrupting many of the financial and
manufacturing institutions of the state.
Nelson Diploma Stands.
The court has overruled the motion for a
rehearing in the case of . Mrs. Nelson
against the Lincoln Medical college and
has overruled a motion t oallow the college
to open up the case, to appoint a referee
arid take additional evidence in support of
the defense Interposed In the court below.
Admitting that the respondent Is entitled
to a trial de novo, the court says such trial
must be had upon the pleadings and evi
dence presented to the district court. To
allow new Issues to be framed and addi
tional evidence introduced In such cases
would In effect destroy the strictly appel
late character of the supreme court.
The complainant,-Mrs. Nelson, obetained
a drtt of mandamus to compel the college
to grant her a diploma.
Echo of Street Railway Case.
The motion of the state of Nebraska on
relation of James L. Caldwell, appellant,
against the Lincoln Street Railway et al.,
appellees, to modify the opinion and Judg
ment formerly given. Is overruled.' The
court holds that Rule 7 of this court, al
lowing forty days from the filing of the
opinion or rendition of the Judgment In the
case within which to file a motion for re
hearing supersedes the general rule as to
Judgments becoming final at the expira
tion of the term at which they are ren
dered. This applies only to Judgments and
opinions by the court In appellate Jurisdic
tion. In the exercise ot Its original Juris
diction the provisions of section 602 et seq.
of tho code apply.
Thomsen Stands Convicted.
The judgment of the district court of
Wayne county dismissing an appeal of
Pfter Thomsen, a saloon keeper who was.
convicted before a magistrate of selling
Intoxicating llcjuors to minors, Is sustained
by the supreme court. Thomsen gave an
appeal bond before the police Judge. It
was given In writing, but not executed
as acknowledged by the principals and
surety In the presence of the magistrate
tnklng the same. Thomsen tried to get the
district court to compel tho magistrate to
make a further or amended transcript to
show that he signed the bond In the pres
ence of the magistrate, but he failed to
allege that the surety wak ever present
in court to sign or acknowledge the obllga.
tlon. The supreme court holds that the
application for an amended transcript was
properly denied by the district court In
this case for the reason that It would havo
availed the defendant nothing to show that
he signed or acknowledged the obligation
In the presence of the court without alsi
showing that his surety executed It In like
Judgment la also affirmed in a similar
case, that of Harry M. Rimsey, surety
for Thomsen. The facts In the case are
tho same, except that In Ramsey's case
an effort was made to obtain an amended
The Judgment of district court ot Platte
county dismissing the appeal of remon
strators who had failed to prevent John
Koltyn and W. J. Lnt-srhen from obtaining
saloon licenses in the town of Creston, is
reversed. The saloon men ob'alncd a dis
missal of the appeal of remonstrstors on
the ground that no transcript of the hear
ing before the village trustees had bevn
filed. Tho supreme court holds that this
is not ground for dismissal.
In the case of K. Masin of Box Butte
county, who is relator In a suit tt test

has reversed the Judgment of the dis

VOTERS TURN DOWN NEW LAWS
New Divorce, County Option and Anti
Sunday . Sport All Lose In
SIOUX FALLS. S. D., Nov. .-(Speclal
Telegram.) Opponents of the proposed
new divorce law, raising the period of
residence from six months to one year
and requiring that hearings be neld at
a regular term of court Instead of "In
chambers," tonight are confidently claim
ing that the measure was defeated on
Tuesday by the voters of the state. Those
favoring the law by no means concede
that it has been defeated. If the meas
ure has been defeated as claimed, as now
seems likely, It will be due to several
causes, chief of which is the fact that
the proposed divorce law was greatly
handicapped by being placed upon a sep
arate ballot containing three other pro
posed laws, two of them being county
option and a law designed to prohibit
Sunday amusements In South Dakota,
such as base ball games and cheatrical
The county option law, which appears
to have been defeated In the state, ap
peared first on the ballot, being followed
by the divorce act. There is no doubt
mat mousands of voters, after glancing
part way down the county option meas
ure, by mistake turned their attention
to the bottom of the divorce law and
placed an X before the word "no" under
th divorce law. thinking thev were vot
ing no on county option. Among the
other proposed laws the Sunday amuse
ment law seemed to be much in disfavor
among voters generally, and them i not
much doubt that other thousands of
voters having decided to vote no on this
proposed law and county option decided
to vote no in general on the proposed
laws and thus voted against the divorce
act. That fully 80 per cent of the voters
of the state favored the proposed divorce
law has been conceded. Leading poli
ticians who are in close touch with con
ditions throughout the state and who
have been absolutely neutral in the di
vorce law fight express the opinion that
the divorce law hajj been defeated and
that the defeat of the measure is due
to the reasons given above.

CLERK OF COURT WAS IN ERROR
Case of International Textbook Com

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6.-On October 19,
The Associated Press sent a dispatch from
thla city to the effect that in the United
States supreme court the International
Text Book company was denied a rehearing
in its suit against Aaron T. Plgg of To
peka, Kan. It now appears that this was
an error caused by a mistake of the su
preme court clerk who confused this case
with another having a like number on the
