ICOIJJ, Oct 9. (Special.) The su-
e court today decided that the election
st instituted by Robert Maione, canai-
lcf for mayor of Lincoln, was properly
. ed In the county court of Lancaster
.it jr. Don L. Love, who wai elected
'or, contended, through his attorney,
t the city council alone had Jurisdiction
f, hear the contest. Application wa made
f j the district court for a restraining order
to prevent P. James Cosgrave as county
Judge from bearing the contest.' This ap
plication was denied-by the district court
and an appeal was taken to the supreme
court In the name of Mayor Love.
Judge Letton wrote the opinion of the
court, holding that the contestant had
light to start proceedings before cither the
county court or before the city council.
these having concurrent jurisdiction. Judge
Barnes dissents and holds that the city
council has ex -luilve Jurisdiction.
No Relief for Ante Mas.
Albert Jones, fined $26 for running an
automobile at a speed greater than ten
miles an hour In the town of Wayne, gets
no relief from the supreme court. He con
tended that the verdict was not sustained
by the evidence, that the court erred in re
fusing to strike out the testimony of cer
tain witnesses and that the verdict was the
result of prejudice against automobiles. The
supreme court affirms the Judgment
against Jones and says that questions of
fact are for the Jury, and a verdict by them
on a question of fact, where testimony Is
conflicting, will not bo reviewed.
In the case of Hespen against Wendln,
from Otoe county, the court has reversed
the judgment of the lower court with dl
rectlons to, enter Judgment in favor of the
plaintiff as prayed for In his petition. This
finding Is In favor of a foster son who
claimed the right to inherit the same as a
natural son. The boy was born In Ger
many out of wedlock and when he was 9
years old his mother married and oame to
Nebraska, where she and her husband lo
cated on a farm. Other children were born
to the couple and the family prospered
financially. The husband and wife came to
America and started In life with money
the mother had received for the boy's ban
eflt. It was agreed by the husband that the
boy should hare ,in his estate the same
as his other children.
In the case of Charles Winkle against
City of Hastings the court holds that the
dlntrlct court had no power to detach prop
erty from the city of Hastings. This power
was conferred by the legislature upon the
mayor and council. An appeal from that
body in refusing to disconnect particular
tracts cannot be made the means of trans
ferring such power to the district court.
The case Is reversed and dismissed.

application of Bishop Bonacum for an in

The findings of the excise board, made
public this afternoon, clear Chief of Po
lice Rlckard of the charge of affording
protection to houses of Ill-fame. It holds,
however, that the chief used poor Judg
ment In arresting Detective W. A. Bentley
under the circumstances down at the Eva
Matrln plaoe and throwing him In jail.
Ex-Policeman John Wright comes In for a
roasting for his failure to report conditions
down In the bottoms when he was a plain
clothes man'' and was assigned this duty
by his superior officer.
The board takes hold of the matter of
lack of co-operation between the police de
partment and the county officers, which
has become notorious. It finds that dis
cord exists and is a serious detriment to
the publlo service, and It declares that In
the future cordial relations shall prevail
as far as the city Is concerned.
For reasons which he says are known

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Oct. 1 (Special Telegram.)-
City Attorney H. E. Burnam of Omaha and
his two deputies. I. J. Dunn and John Rlne,
were today cited to appear before the su
preme court and defend a charge of con
tempt of court made against them by the
The alleged contempt was committed In
a brief filed In the suit of Anna J. Robinson
against the city of Omaha. The court or
dered the brief stricken from the files and
suppressed It. . It Is understood the attor
neys. In the brief, make some criticism of
Judge Rose, who wrote the opinion in the
Robinson case. The hearing In the con
tempt case was set for November 4.
The Robinson case is one In which Anna
J. Robinson secured Judgment against the
city for II. MO for Injuries on a board side
walk on Davenport street. The supreme
court sustained the verdict and It was In
the brief In support of a motion for a re
hearing that the alleged contempt was committed.
I. J. Dunn, assistant city attorney, when
seen at the Jarksonlan club last evening,
said that he wrote the brief to which the
supreme court takes exception, but as It
is a fifty-page brief he does not know to
what part the court objects. He said that
Mr. Rose wrote the opinion sustaining the
verdict against the city of Omaha for $1,600
in a damage suit where a tars. Robinson
fell and broke her shoulder on the side
walk. "I said In the brief! that the testimony
in the case was cold-blooded perjury and I
will tell the court so," said Mr. Dunn. "I
also wrote that all the witnesses, the Judge
and the jury knew It was perjured teatV
mon and that any sane man would know It
from reading the testimony. The witness
told three different states of facts In the
case and the record shows It."

COURT. MERCIFUL TO DEFAULTER
spends Sentence When Plea of
Gnllty is Entered.
BROKEN BOW, Neb., Oct. . (Special.)
A number of cases on this docket this
term were settled out of court and not s
few continued until next term. William E.
Wlllard, who has been under bonds for
over two years charged with absconding
with funds belonging to the county trea
surer while employed as a clerk In that
department, pleaded guilty to the charge
and threw himself on the meroy of the
court. Judge Hostetler suspended sentence
under the following conditions: that Wll
lard should pay back the money he had
taken together with the expenses Incurred
by the county In bringing him to justice
and that for the next seven years he must
report at each term to this division of the
district court. During that time, should
Wlllard violate the law In any way, he Is
to be brought Into court and sentenced
on the original charge. This apparently
disposes of a case that from time to time
has caused some mild wonderment.

Grant Bond Case
Will Reach Crisis
Plaintiff Has to Finish Introduction
of a Little Rebuttal
The U. 8. Grant, Jr., bond trial will reach
a crisis tomorrow morning when the plain
tiff has finished Introduction of a little
rebuttal evidence. The defense will then
move for a peremptory verdict Its way.
If the ruling of the court Is the defense's
)', and there Is some chance of this,
then It Is all over with Mr. Grant. On
the other hand. If the plaintiff Is allowed
to go on and argue the case with the Jury
deciding In tho regular way, then Mr.
Grant has a good show for a verdict.
Yesterday the defense finished Its Intro
duction of evidence. O. C. Drngna was
the principal witness, but this side nlso
called Mr. Grant, and his attorney. Judge
Ben Baker, as well. Mr. Baker was in
vited to tell of his employment In the rase
and he proved a most uncommunicative
witness, standlrg on tho objection of
The defense was Interested In this point
as bearing on the question of the bringing
of the bonds here through F. H. Btowe,
formerly of the Independent Telephone
company. Testimony by Mr. Grant was
that Mr. Stowe said he was considering
buying the bonds and that he heard from
Slowe that these bonds were his. Grant's.
The evidence brought out by the defense
did not seem to support, to any grest ex
tent, Its charge of trickery In procuring
the bonds to be brought to this Jurisdiction.
O. C. Dragna took the stand In the morn
ing and testified on direct examination
that he bought direct title In the bonds
from Mr. Grant and denied understanding
that he was to act as Mr. Grant's agent
In their recovery for Mr. Grant. He also
asserted that he had secured title by buy
ing from Tabor.
On cross-examination he managed to
evade the pitfalls set for him by the at
torney for tho other side, though the plain
tiff was able to emphasize somewhat the
fact that answers were occasionally evasive.
