fFtom Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Neb., Feb. I0.-Bpecl1 Tele
gram.) Samuel R. Howell, convicted of
violating the Junkln anti-trust law and
aentenced to six month In jail and to
par flna of $1,000, won a victory In the
supreme court, whkh today raveraed tha
deolalon of tha lower court and remanded
tha caae for further proceeding!.
The opinion waa written by Chief Juatice
Reeae. Tha chief Justice held that tha trial
judge had erred In giving an Instruction to
tha jury' This instruction waa to the ef
fect that tha constitution of the Omaha
Coal exchange Itself, If carried out, waa a
violation of tha anti-trust lawa of the atate
In that It provided that membera of the
exchange could not personally solicit busi
ness but could send out postal cards or uae
. unsigned printed matter to get bualneaa.
Thia constitution alao provided that tha
exchange could not interfere with prices or
agreements between tha membera whether
the prices were retail or wholesale. Judge
Reese held that thia could be taken Into
consideration by the jury, but in Itself It Is
not violation of the law.
Tha record In tha caae covered 1. 000 pages
and there were 1S9 assignment of error.
Judge Reeae aaid, and for that reason the
court would not leview the caae In detail.
The court held that notwithstanding How
U waa not Individually a member of the
tfmaha Coal exchange he was reaponstble
for Ita acta because he waa preaident of an
organisation which did belong to tha ex
change. Kearacr Ceaaty Mast Fay.
Kearney county must pay to Buffalo
county half of fl.K, which the latter paid
out for repairing the auo-foot bridge acroaa
the Platte river directly south of the city
of Kearney. Kearney county refused to
join in a contract to have the atructure
placed In usable condition and the work
waa ordered and paid for by Buffalo
county. Kearney county refuaed to pay
and judgment waa obtained agalnat it In
district court. Appeal waa taken and the
supreme court holds that a county which
refuses to enter with an adjoining county
to repair a bridge across a stream dividing
ihem la liable to the county making the
repairs for auch proportion of tha cost aa
It ought to pay, not exceeding one-half of
the amount expended, when the county
making the repairs haa followed the pro
cedure of the atatute aa to notice, etc.
No More Malt Beverages.
The aupreme court haa just decided that
the sale of "Non-Tox," "Juatua Beer."
"Malt Head" and kindred alleged nonlntox
Icatlng malt beverages comes within the In
hlbltlon of the Slocumb law and that their
aale without a license la Just as much a
violation of the atatute aa would be the
aale of old-fashioned lager beer. The caae
in which thia opinion la handed down la
that of John A. Luther agalnat the atate,
and cornea from Harlan county.
Luther waa arreated for selling "Non
Intox," a malt tonic containing less than 1
per cent of alcohol," and under a search
warrant a number of barrels of the stuff
were foound on hla premises. He waa con
victed and fined In the district court and
appealed. ' The caae was reversed upon
the original hearing before the aupreme
court commlaaion, upon the ground that the
atate had not proved that the liquor waa
Intoxicating. A rehearing waa secured and
The former opinion la now aet aside. It ia
held that It la not neceaaary for the atate
to prove that malt liquor la intoxicating.
The aale of all "malt" liquor aa a beverage
la prohibited by law, and auch aale la a
violation of the atatute, whether or not
the percentage of alcohol Is sufficient to
produce Intoxication.
Skippers Right Care.
No matter what demand a shipper may
make for empty cars he Is only entitled
to Ms percentage of the number available
for use at hla station. This is the opinion
of the court in the case of State ex rel
Frank Dobney against the Northwestern
railroad. Dobney waa a hay ahipper at

for cars in which to ship his commodity
and could not get them fest enough. He
accordingly began msndamua proceeitlnaa
In the district court to compel the road to
furnish him with fifty care at the rate of
five per day. The, court Issued the writ
and the railroad company appealed.
The aupreme court reverses the judgment
of the lower tribunal and In the opinion
handed down flnda that the railroad com
pany ao diatrlbuted Its cars that the empties
were ordinarily retained on the division
whtre they were unleaded unlll they could
be loaded. It alao preferred shippers of
grain, II evstock and other merchandise
over shipments of hay located at non
competitive points. During the hay block
adea In Omaha and Chicago It withheld
cara from hay shippers, which is held to
be an unlawful discrimination.
However, the road ahowed that at the
time Dobney applied for hla mandamua
there waa a general shortage of cars and
that he waa only entitled to a just division
cf the empties that should have been ap
portioned to his station. The order is
reversed, but as the defendant was In some
measure to blame it Is ordered to pay the

Hastings la a dry town ao far aa tha
liquor licenses of John Rosenberg. John R.
Freltag, John Curry, Paul Bchlssler and F.
J. Neylon are concerned.
A decision affecting thia drouth was
handed down In supreme court Saturday
morning, the licenses of Rosenberg, Curry
and Sbhlsaler being declared void because
there waa not satisfactory proof that their
petition contained the name of the requi
site number of freeholder.
The court holds that Alexander, a coun
cilman, waa disqualified from voting on
the Issuance of any license because he had
algned the petition of Janssen 4 Freltag,
although his signature was eraated after
Rorher, the complainant, secured a photo
graph of the signature. Alexander'a vote
tied the council up bo that Mayor Miles had
to decide the matter. With Alexander dis
qualified -the council would have been
against the Issuance of a license.
The court reverses the decision of the
district Court of Adams count?, which up
held the issuance of the licenses by the
council, and direct the council to cancel
the licenses.

A. I Hoover ft Son will not be com

Mayor F. W. Brown haa filed a petition
of Intervention In the suit of Charles H.
Swallow against the Eureka Manufacturing
company. He asks the district court to
permit him to Join in the auit against the
company In which an lnjtiction la aought
to prevent the payment of aome creditors

Eureka Manufacturing company and it la

and door company and the question of the
validity of ita purchase that seems to be

Mayor Brown says that he owns 16,000
share of the preferred stock of the com
pany and is entitled on those shares to
participate In the management of the com
pany. He aaya that the majority of the
stockholder have refused to allow him any
part in the management of the company
or to rote at the recent election of offi

Telephone Hrarlag.
The railroad commlaaion met thia morn
ing and a good part of the day waa put
in hearing the nAtelope county telephone
caae. It la expected a ruling will be made
In the matter forthwith. This i a ques
tion of switching charges between the An
telope County Telephone company of Elgin
and the Cedar Mutual compafy of Oakd&le.
They have been giving free switching serv
ice in the paat, but lately the former
company ha added 300 'phones to Its equip
ment, giving It 800 in all, and lengthened
Its service to twenty-four hours a day In
stead of fourteen, aa formerly.
With theae additional improvement it
asks the commission to allow It to charge
SO centa instead of 26 cents per month fur
switching services on farm lines, also that
the Cedar Mutual be made to do what
is right. The commission will allow pay
from the latter company for switching serv
lcea by the former, but the amount must
be determined by the telephone people
themselves. If they cannot agree on thia
matter, then moat probably the Elgin com
pany will be allowed to cut oft-from ex
changing. . Royal F. Brewater waa struck by an
unllghted automobile at the corner of Sev
enteenth and Washington streets about 1
o'clock this morning, the Impact of the
racing machine throwing him into the air
and out of the street onto the lawn in
front of L. M. Bumstead'a heuse, at 1500
South Seventeenth street. He received no
serious wounds or broken bones, though
his body and limbs are a mass of painful
flesh bruises.
The driver of the car made no attempt
to stop and Investigate, but drove straight
ahead, directly over the motor cycle which
Brewater had . been leading and dashed
away Into the darkness. Brewster does not
know the Identity of the machine. Its driver
or owner.
Tha legal department of the atate waa
not represented before the supreme court
when Judge Hamer made hla last appeal
for a atay of execution for K. Mead 6 bum
way. Grant Martin, deputy attorney gen
eral, represented the atate before the gov
ernor and resisted tha application of Judge
Hamer. Thia hearing was concluded about
11 10. Judge Hamer than went immediately
before the court and on hla showing se
cured the stay without the legal depart
ment even beglng notified that the appli
cation bad been made.
