Supreme Court Decides Disputed
Point of Law.
Opinion of Vital Intrrral In I.nraer
Contl of Nebraska Dr. Wal
ker's t.lrense Hemalns
(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
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,

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.

having obtained a position at Cozad. He
was seen at 4:10 o'clock in the morning, In
