UXCULN, April 11 Speclal.)-Tr.e Bur-
Itnirton railroad tlila morning, through Ita
general manager, O. W. Holdregs, took
refuga behind a report made by J. A.
Williams, ex-railway commissioner, when
complaint was made by Desta E. McCon
nell of damage to'ricr property by reason
of a. bad crossing of the railroad.
The complaint of Mrs. McCnnnell was
nt by the railway commission to the
Burlington for some action. This morn
ing Mr. Holdrege returned. to the commis
sion a copy of an Injunction secured by the
Burlington against John McConnell, whom
Mr. Holdrege said he supposed was the
husband of Mrs. Desta McConnclI, to pre
vent him from destroying the railroad
property and he also returned a report
made by Judge Williams of his Investiga
tion of the McConnclI report against the
Burlington.' ' ' 1
In this report Mr, Williams gave the
Burlington a clean' bill. Ho said he had
carefully Investigated the complaint of Ms
Conne;i of numeroua fires started by the
engines of the Burlington, but the fires
complained of. the report said, did not
damage the property of McConnell. Fur
ther, the report laid, McConnell had re
fuged to permit the rail rood to burn a fire
gjard on his land which abutted the right-of-way
of the-railroad and this Judge
Williams held was necessary to prevent
the fires if the rillroads continued to use
iWl !n tucir engines.
Vh: report of Judge Williams said fur
ther that when the commissioner reached
t..e McConnolh property and met the owner
t ) discuss his complaint MdConnell began to
t bu c and villify him because the commls
n mi lind given him no relief, when as a
1. aucr of fuel the commission had done all
I. i on d- do and the railroad had done Us
boat to prevent tiros. The request of, the
m ixed to bum a fire guard on the
iroporty of the individuals which joined
tin.- lailroad'a right-of-way. Judge Wil
liams said, was not, thought unreasonable
ly McConnell s neighbors. The McConnell
family lives near Somerset and the com
plaint of , the head of the, house was in
vestigated by Judge WilllanSa last October,

An opportunity Is at hand to test the
validity of the) act -of the late legislature
to charge toT for listing with the secretary

poiatlons. Heretofore ttjls charge has been

increased the fee to $o0. - So tar one corpora
t.on has paid the increase fee. .
This morning an electrical company of
Omaha sent down the name of its agent,
who take the place of Its retiring agent,
and the company failed to send the neces
sary 150 fee. The company has been noti
fied of the change In the law and the list

If the street railways of Omaha and

banoc of tliu Block yards, they have an
other guess coming. Under, a ruling of
the State Railway commission the bill ap
plies to. strict railways. The commission
bases Its construction oh this section:
"Sec. 2. Tho term public-service corpora
tion when used in .'this act shall mean
and embrace every railroad, railway, tele
graph, express, telephone and the railroad
transportation property of stock yard
The commission today mailed out to a
number of prominent englneera in various
parts of the country copies of the law
- and Invited them to make suggestions re
garding the enforcement and also to sub
mit propositions to attend to the work
under Its provisions. In its statement to
the engineers he commission said the law
ref:rrcd to street railway companies. The
general . Impression prevailed around the
legislature thai street railways hat? not

city, a member of the old board, held a
conference with the attorney general, the
state auditor and .the state treasurer 'o
day and ho has decided his line of action.
The entire matter will be placed up to
the state auditor. When the new board
meets tomorrow and organises and then
presents to the state auditor the vouch

ditor will refuse to Issue the warrants.
He will hold that ha U undecided whether

Auditor Barton his refused to register
a bond issue of $100,000 by the city of Kear
ney for the purpose of constructing a. city
water works plant Mr. Barton's reasons
for the refusal are contained In the fol
lowing letter to the city clerk of Kearney,
Mr. George E. Flerde:
I havo had before me for consideration
the history of the action of the council of
the city of Kearney relative to the issue of
water works bonds In the sum of (100,000,
and beg to state that I cannot register
same, for the following reasons: The ordi
nance providing for the calling of the
special election does not mention the time
the bunds are to run and rate of Interest
they are to bear, nor when they are op
tional. Tho notice of the special election
does not mention the length of time the
bonds are to run or the rate of Interest
they are to bear, or the tlrne when tlmy
are optional. The last ordinance provided
lor the Issuance of these bonds specified
in regard to this matter, but such ordi
nance wns passed after the election was
held and the result declared. The bonds
were voted October 15, 197, and were never
Issued until Jsnuary 1. 1909 fifteen months
later, which leads me to believe there was
tome doubt in the mind of the council of
the city of Kearney as to their validity.
But greater than ail of these, there is a
grave question, and for which I hesitate
to register them, and that is the constitu
tionality of the act under which they were
Oploloas of Saoreiao Ceart.

Mrs. Chas. VVooster
1 Renews Her Suit
She Again Applies for Divorce from
Fusion Politician All Efforts
to Ajree Fail.
CENTRA l CITT. Neb.. April 13.-(8pe-clal.)
Dropping the charge that her hus
band would not give her any rest because
she would not declare to him that she loved
him better than she loved Ood, but making
more prominent the claim that he threat
ened to commit murder If he was compelled
to live with her any longer, I-lllle M.
Wooster ha started another suit In the
district court of Merrick county against
her husband, Charles Wooster, asking for
an absolute divorce and alimony.
The first suit was started several months
ago and after dragging along In the courts
and after repeated continuances had been
granted It was dismissed at an equity ses
sion aboutt wo weeks ago, when the plain
tiff wa not ready for trial at the time
set. It wss thought then that a recon
ciliation between the parties would be ef
fected. Evidently all effort in this line
have failed.
The main grounds upon which Mrs.
Wooster asks for a divorce are extreme
cruelty. She claim that only a few
month after they were married in 1881,
Wooater smashed down the door of the
room where she had fled for refuge, and
the door struck her on the head and ren
dered her unconscious. She claim on sev
eral occasions he beat her and used pro
fane and vulgar language toward her and
repeatedly ridiculed her belief In God and
taught their children to do the same. She
claim that she left him in 1906, because
he threatened that If he was compelled to
live with her any longer he would commit
murder. She has atnee been making her
home wtih friends In Portland, Ore., but
claims that she has not relinquished her
residence in Merrick county. She claims
that when she married Wooster she
brought with her (1,300 which ha gone Into
hi property, and In her demands for ali
mony and a division of the property she
ask that this $1,200 be taken into consider
ation. She clajms that Wooster has real
estate to the value of 111,000 and personal
property valued at $3,000.
Wooster ha been prominent In state
politic for a long time, being representa
tive from Merrick co'inty In the state leg
islature and at one time prominently men
tioned for fusion nominee for congressman
from the Third congressional district. He
reside at Silver Creek.
The case will probably be tried out at
the next regular term of the district court.
Court Affirms
Case from Wayne
Holds License Procedure Conld Not
. Be Corrected in Court Katie
man Wins from Omaha.
(Frxm a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Neb. April lI.-(Special
Telegram.) In the Wayne llauor case,
wherein appeal wa taken rom the district
court because It refusj.l to cause the city
council of Wayne to reconvene and take
evidence on the application of Peter Thorn
aon for a liquor license, the supreme
eourt has affirmed the decision of the
lower1 court. The court held that while no
license should have been granted Thomson,
yet the error could not be corrected in the
district court.
Jacob Katleman won his case against
the city of Omaha In which he sought to
secure an order from the court to force
the city to pay him $300 for aome property
condemned for boulevard purpose. The city
attempted to hold out some $J00 by reason
of special assessment against the property.
Th property had been appraised at $3,000,
the court said, and the appraisement ac
cepted by the council and the warrant
Issued. The city should at that time have
claimed Its lien upon the money, but having
failed to do so it must now pay the full
amount of the warrant.
In the syllab'ua the court said:
A freeholder otherwise qualified to s gn
a petition or a liquor license is not dis
qualified because he is not personally ac
quainted with the applicant, or doea not
know that he la a man of reputable char
acter unci standing in the community.
If a remonstrator appeals from an order
of the excie board granting a saloon
llcente. the district court Is without author
ity In that proceeding to direct said board
to reconvene and reieive testimony thai
waa offered by the remonstrators and ex
cluded by said board.

Last summer Staat brought a suit against
Louis Kreymbcrg. a prominent and well-to-
do citizen, for the alleged alienation of
his wife's affections, claiming $20,000 dam
ages. The defendant made arrangement
for a vigorous defense and the plaintiff
dismissed his case, after bringing an action
against his wife for divorce on the ground
of undue Intimacy with parties at Council
Bluffs and St. Joseph, Mo. While at St.
Joseph he caused her arrest on the ground
of adultery, but the case doe not appear
to have even reached a hearing. Mrs.
Staats came back to Fremont and employed
attorneys, who procured an order for suit
money and filed an answer setting up
some sensational chajges. On account of
the prominence and wealth of the parties
and the character of the charge the case
ha attracted a good deal of attention.
