KOEMAL BOARD WAR BEGINS Aadlltr Will Refss te Recocalso ttebers , ! Mfakrri ( Hew Body mm Llttfatloa Starts. (From a Staff Correspondent.) 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, t'taanre to Test Biew Un. An opportunity Is at hand to test the validity of the) act -of the late legislature to charge toT for listing with the secretary or statu the resident agent of foreign cor poiatlons. Heretofore ttjls charge has been nomliuil, 30 tents, but the late legislature 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 ing of its new agent Is held up pending tre receipt of the i0. Yalsatloa I.atr Jnclsdes Street Lines. If the street railways of Omaha and Lincoln have aav.tdea that.Sejator Ransom tved them from - the operations of the physical valuation bill when he saved the 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 companies." 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 been Included In the bill. Nersnsl Board '! Oa. The warriors are on the ground for the battle . ever the control of the state normal schools. Colonel Majors of the new board created by the democratic leg islature and Dr. Siiellhorn of the same 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 ers for expenses of the members, llie au ditor will refuse to Issue the warrants. He will hold that ha U undecided whether the members of the new board are entitled to the money. So this will tie up matters until someone brings suit against the au ditor to force htm to Issue the warrant, UAYDENi . THC KCUABUt VrmnK TSc EITRAOOD Another Ulg Sale Thursday. Wait h, For l.

Treasurer Brlsn, who Is a member of ths old board and of the new by virtue of hi position as state treasurer, will refdse to meet with the new board, but will hold that the law creating It Is no good from a legal standpoint. Blew Treasary Esasalaer. Samuel Nlea of Xeltgh la expected to ar rive shortly and qualify as a couuty treasurer examiner under appointment by Auditor Barton. Mr. Nles was formerly county treasurer and also county superin tendent of Antelope county. Kearaey Hobo's lareslatereil. 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 voted.

TMC MUABLC STSStg 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.

An equity term of the district court I being held here this week. Judge Hollen beok presided yesterday, and today Judge Thoma i pn the bench. Agnes Arp wa granted a decree of divorce from Henry on the customary ground of cruelty and desertion. The court held the case under advisement for some time. The twx divorce cases of Horst against IIorsL and Staat against Staata, which are of a sensational nature, are set for trial, but it is doubtful If the latter ever reaches the court. An array of counsel are ready, but neither party appears to be, 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. vVoanaa S offers from Exposure. GRAND ISLAND. Nob., April 13.
