J. M. milan, manager of tne Auditorium,
trlres The pee from Chicago that he has
matched Rsnun tie Rouen, the big French
man, and Touslff Mshmout, the Turk, for
a wrestle at th Audttnrium February 6.
Trill ewsls extremely disappointing ti
many Omaha mn who have hofn faithful
In therr patronage of the wrestling game.
They hoped Mr. Olllan would send back
the simple newa of the date of the match
between Jena Weslergaard and the Turk,
which t wm .to arrange with George
Kennedy jn Chicago.
Jena Weslergaard, It Is pointed out, la
clearly entitled to the match tnalcad of
the big Freneh-hiiik." of whom Wealergaard
ma do considerable -of a monkey Monday
night. Before the Westergaard-de Rouen
watch began the referee announced the re
ceipt of a telegram from the Turk chal
lenglng the wlnn'r mflc7 to the surprise
of de .Rouen's tbackcr i the winner . waa
VVeatergaard for do Rouen waa to throw
him twice In an hour or l"se the match.
He didn't tnrow him at all. ' ,
George Kennedy, who waa with the
frenchman in Omaha, Is the promoter and
rutcker of both tho Frenchman and the
Turk. lie la a professional wrestling pro
moter and the Idea which Inevitably arlaea
from tho de ' Rouen-Mali mout match Is
rather repugnant to local fana. Hippo
clrnming will meet wlthJigrd sledding here.
Many fans have expressed the hope that
It, will . not become .possible to sustain
charge of combination or freeze-out In this
city, such aa has-been made In other towna
a Ion this. hne. , ..
It doesn't require any occult scientist to
iliscover the atato of feeling among Omaha
wrestling devotees aa a result of the fact
that Weatergaard has been deliberately
shoved to .one side and Trot. Kennedy given
the rlght-ct'vray' with' his two foreign em
ployes. . ,i . i
There never was any doubt In the minds
of those who law Aha. Westergaard-de
Jtpuen match of Its being on the square.
The Frenchman and his backer, Kennedy
'would have sacrificed considerable of the
receipts if ,pnly de Uouen could have got
ten his twr)' frtils out of the sturdy low'a
boy, but Westergaard, has a name to make
also and h -was equally as eager to win
end the belief ts general that If the match
had continued much longer he would ac
tually thrown the big Frenchman.

Quo warranto proceedings to determine
by w hat authority the ' present or the re
tiring governor of Nebraska has or had to
appoint Judges of the supreme court under
the constitutional amendment ndopted by
vote of the people In the general election
last November will be Instituted in su
preme court this week by Attorneys Ji el
W. West and T. J. Mahoncy on -the part
and in behalf of Willis n. Oldham of
Kearney, appointed by Governor Shallen
berger. Judge Oldham was appointed Wednesday
to fill the vacancy caused by the resigna
tion of Silas A. Holcomb, appointed by
Governor Shallrnberger, but who was dis
qualified by reason of not having lived In
the stale the required period. The quo
warranto proceedings wiU be instituted not
only for the purpose of determining ;he
appointing power, but to oust Judge J. R.
Leun, apprlnted by Governor Sheldon.
The proceedings will be based upon tao
ctrtentlons, one that the law granting to
a slate canvassing board the power to can
vass the returns of an election on consti
tutional amendments was not legally
raesed, and the other cd the ground that
the legislature has an Inherent right to
canvass the returns of such an election.
Points of the Case.
Mr. West, In giving an insight into points
he will present to the supreme ccurt In
support of his contention that Governot
Shalleiiberger and not fqrmer Governor
Sheldon has the right to appoint, said:
"The amendment conferred authority on
the governor to appoint and by the sum
act fixed tho time when the power of ap
pointment would be called Into being.
"The law up to 1S95 conferred the power
to canvass the vote on constitutional
amendments on the legislature, but an act
attempted to be passed In that year changed
the law so that the canvassing power was
given to the state board of canvassers
and the law existing , therefore was re
pealed. We claim that Hie Inw of 1896 was
never legally enacted for this reason: The
act originated In the. senate, was passed
and sent to the hqyee, where it was
amended In title and body, passed and
sent back to the senale for concurrence,
but the senale never took any action on
"In 1897 the legislature amended the act
of 1895 by repealing snd re-enacting it In
most, of Its provisions, but omitting that
part giving power to canvass top the state
board of canvassers. The situation now
Is that we claim that the law of 1877 la
still In force. If, however, the law of
1895 ts held to be well passed so that the
law. of 1877 is repealed, then the statute
aa it now stands under, the law of 1897 Is
entirely silent as to the authority by which
the vote shall be canvassed.
Power of l.eglelatare.
"Upon such a state of' facts It Is claimed
by the highest authority that the power to
canvass is Inherent In the legislature and
that It has the power to canvass without
first giving Itself the liower so to do."

The nnme of Thomas J. Flynn, street

down through! the corridors of time along

en Construction to Itnn Kasl from
fireeley for Pngnr Meet Raisers
and .North from Itrnver
A. 1 Mohler. vice president and general
manager of the I'nlon Pacific, announces
that Ms road will begin as soon ns possible
the construction of thire new strelchea of
lorfd. comprising seventy-four miles. In
Colorado. The surveys for these roads
have been made and the right-of-way Is
now being secured.
Mf. Mohler says these roads are not bslng
built to parallel the Colorado & Southern,
but that they rather parallel the Vnlon Ta
cific lines. One of these lines is ftom Den
ver horth to a point near Kile, and the
other two lines are branches east from
firreley Branch to t ost tf,.VHMXn.
The lines to tho east from Oreelcy will
be about thirty-five miles long and will
cost about $.!."(n.nrt. They will extend
from Orecley into the Crow Creek territory
and northeast Into the Oreeley-Poudre Ir
rigation district. Most of the right-of-nay
has been aecured and work will begin In a
couple of weeks with l.fluo men and half
as many teams on the Job.
These new lines go Into a rich. Irrigated
section that Is well adapted for the raising
of sugar beets. In the Untie Tree and
Crow Creek districts, tne lands have been
cultivated for years, but the owners have
not been able to grow sugar beets the best
money making crop, to advantage, because
of the long haul to the Oreoley factory.
The other line from Denver north to a
point near Krle Is taken to mean that the
I'nlon Pacific will tap the rich Weld coun
try, tapping tho coal regions around Fred
trick and Firestone. It is also taken to
be part of a double track system from
Greeley south, ns the new line practically
parallels lines already In existence.
