L THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: PECEMBElt fi. 100S. !T5 1 'iiuumiilLLlv IlLilftl.tJ 1 L.Li o Supreme Court Decides Disputed Point of Law. MONEY FOR MARRIAGES HIS OWN Opinion of Vital Intrrral In I.nraer Contl of Nebraska Dr. Wal ker's t.lrense Hemalns nfroVfd. (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN. Dee. 6. (Special.) County judges who have collected fees for per forming marriage ceremonies prior to the enactment of the present law relating to county Judges' fees are not responsible to the county for these fees. County Judges who have made efforts to collect fees and have failed cannot he held responsible by the county. The above the supreme court decided this morning, when It handed down Its decision In the case wherein Douglas county sued Duncan M. V'lnwinhaler for fees collected by him for performing marriage ceremonies whlio county Jddge. The court ordered the case reversed and dismissed. In the lower court the Judgment was ren dered against Vlnsonhaler for 16,862.112, money he had collected for performing marriage ceremonies. Both parties ap pealed. The decision was written by Com missioner Calkins. The syllabus l as fol lows: 1. Where an action Is brought against a county Judge und his surety for a failure to report fce In excess of th amount allowed him an compensation, earned but not col lected, It must appear that he willingly omitted to charge the prescribed fee with Intent to evade the provisions' of the act of 177 (Laws of 1S77, p:ige 215), or negligently omitted to collect such fees, or In taking security therefor, negligently failed to re quire sufficient surely. 2. The powers given by section 8 of chap ter 2, compiled statutes, to Judges und clergymen to perform the marriage cere mony In this state Is permissive, and not mandatory, except as to such officers as are given fees for tlio performance of such cei emon v. 3 The' provisions of section 8 of chapter M. comniled statutes, giving the county Ju1ge for any service performed by him In any mutter within the Jurisdiction of a Justice of the peaco, tho same fees as allowed by law to the Justice of the peace for like services, are limited to thoso cases in which the county Judge derives his powers to perfo1. m the service solely from the grant to him of the ordinary powers and Jurisdiction of a Justice of the peace. It does not give him the right to charge a fee for marriage ceremonies, because the power to perform such ceremonies Is not derived from such grunt of the ordinary powers and Jurisdiction of a Justice of the peace. 4. Where the meaning of a statute Is doubtful, long usage. Is a Just medium by which to expound it, and the fact that the officers whose duty It was to enforce the act of 1877 have for many years construed it eo as not to require a county Judge to report fees received for performing mar ttnge ceismonies, may properly be con sidered In construing a statute by which It Is claimed the right to such fees was given. Mathews License Revoked. Dr. J. E. Mathews of Omaha whose license to practice medicine was revoked by the State Hoard of Health, secured no relief to his appeal to the supreme court. The supremo court affirmed the decision of the district court, which upheld the action of the Board of Health. Dr. Mathews wa charged with' having per formed an Illegal operation on Miss Edith Shert, a nurse at ono time employed at Oreen Gables, Lincoln, who later died. The court helds tho evidence before the board was sufficient to Justify Its action, t'opoe Goes to "Pen." Judge P. Copoe, sentenced to the peni tentiary from Nemaha "county, on the charge of larceny as' bailee, will have to serve his term, the supreme court having affirmed the decision of the lower court. Copoe was employed as a carpenter to fix i a house, whose former owner, de ceased, had been a miser. Copoe found money on the premises and turned It over to the administrator of the estate. On two other occasions he found various sums, and on the third occasion he fell. The money was spent and he was arrested and convicted. This Is the second time the case has been before the court. Derision Against Sprecher. In the llhel suit of George W. Wertx, against John C Sprecher of Schuyler, which the supreme court reversed after the lower court found for Sprecher, the higher court holds: "The truth alono Is not ample defense In a civil action for libel, but If the defendant Justifies, he must further allege and prove that he pub lished the alleged defamatory with good notlves and for Justifiable ends." Sprecher published a story to the effect that Wertx, us county attorney of Colfax county Bad Breath and Sour Stomach Slopped At Onto With Ture Willow t'linrcoa!, the Greatest AhsorlnT Known. Th re Is no necessity to suffer the humiliation, chagrin and discomfort of bad brer ih, bllluusness, sour stomach, gastritis, sluggish liver, etc., when a lit tle lozenge, of charcoal will cleanse the stomach and make it pure and sweet. Don't drug yourself when a simple lit tle natural charcoal made from fragrant willow branches, sweetened with honey, will udd tone to your stomach, liver and latestlnes, rapidly absorbe gases and stop foul odors of all kinds. Charcoal will absorb one hundred times Its own volume In gas. A box full of charcoal placed In a bed room will keep the air of such a room pure and sweet. A little charcoal hzenge dissolved on the longuo after meals will also keep the stomach fresh and clean. Charcoal Is Juf-tiy called the scrubbing brush of the stomach. The old monks of medieval times cured bad cases of stomach trouble, cast out devils from the system of man by feeding such a man churcoal. Scientific men of today believe In the great strength of churcoal for the cure of human tils. Too much uf It cannot haim one. The system craves It Just like an animal needs and craves suit every so often;' Charcoal . goes Into the stomach gently und Is welcome, it settles down through tho action of the stomach, and filters through all the food, absorbing gas. aiding digestion and giving tone to the Juices, so that when the food goes into the Intestines, and there meet other digestive fluid, the charcoal holds the Impurities and thus keeps them from the blood. Stuart's Charcoal lozenges are made from pure willow. They are prepared fragrant by the use of honey and sweet ened so tlicy please the taste and ure easily dissolved. They have an enormous sale, thus stamping them with the appruvnl of the public. Every druggist Sells them, t'5 cents per box. Go to your druggWt today and buy a box; then after your next meal take two or three of them and Judgo for yourself of their merit. Several taken at bed time will prove to you In the morning that they have oeen at work all night, for your bad breath will not be so bad after all.

He demanded 13 of the company and a rebate of 25 cents for the week the Instrument wns out of commis sion.
