his name placed on the primary election
ballot as a candidate for the republican
nomination for United States senator. Mr.

retary of State Junkln accepted the filing
and unless someone enjoins him the name
will go on the ballot to be voted for Au
gust 18. the date of the state primary
Some time ago Attorney' General Thomp
son gave an off-hand opinion that the pri
mary law prohibited, the nomination . of
candidates for the senate at the coming
state primary and In this decision he was
upheld by Arthur Mullen, who managed
the legislation for the democratic legis
lature last winter.
In the law which fixed the filing; fee
to be paid by candidates, the candidate
for the senate must pay ffiO, so Secretary
of State Junkln decided that he would
accept filings from any candidate who
produced a receipt showing he had paid
to a county treasurer the $50 filing fee.

Bates Aaralnst Session, )
Colonel Bates of Plattsmouth, member
of the late democratic legislature, was a
caller at the office of the chief executive
this afternoont and while there he regis
tered a protest against any extra session.
Colonel Bates said 'he saw no reason for
an extra session and he had never re
ceived any petition asking him to express
himself upon it.
The Plattsmouth colonel has Just re
turned from a trip to the west end of the
state and shortly he expects to locate
there and establish a democratic news
paper, leaving; his sons to ma-nage the
paper at Plattsmouth. This chance is
made on account of the health of Mrs.
Decision on Capital Stock.
In order to settle a long; mooted qnestion
as te what really la the capital stock of a
corporation, the Railway commission put
the matter up to the attorney general. The
question grew out of the application of
corporations to issue stock . or contract
debts. The question asked the attorney
."Can a corporation under this statute
seotion 4129, Cobbey's statutes)' be per
mitted to issue its bonds or create an
Indebtedness in excess of two-thirds of the
mount of capital stock actually Issued 77
In concluding; hla opinion the attorney
"I am lead to the conclusion and give It
as my opinion that the term 'capital stock, "
as used in this statute, means the sub
scribed or paid up capital stock, and not
the authorised capital stock, nor the 'capi
tal' or gross assets of the corporation, for
this may fluctuate as the value of the
property may fluctuate in which the assets
of the corporation arising- from its stock
tales have been invested, and that a corpor

Otoe Farmer Tries
to Get Divorce
Richard Clove Bring Startling;
Charge! Against Vviie, but iaiU
NEBRASKA CITK. Neb., Jsn. 4. -(Special.)
The greater portion of this week
there has been on trial In the district
court the divorce case wherein Richard A.
Ulove, one of the pioneer settlers of this
section, has been endeavoring to secure
a divorce from hla wife, . Mrs. Carrie
Ulove. The plaintiff went on the stand
and was there for a whols day, telling his
side of the story. He Is 76 years of age
and his wife 63. They were married in
this city some twenty-five years ago, a
year after he had secured a divorce from
a former wife, whom he charged with
At that time he was knowin as a large
land owner and cattle raiser and after the
first divorce he had 220 acres of land and
a large number -of cattle left He now owns
S20 acres of land, but his cattle la all
gone and he testified that he had spent
tlfi.OUO on the Board of Trade in Chicago
and lost it and his lands carried a mort
gage of 115,000 as a result of his specula
Hons, He charged his wife with having
been . intimate with a prominent South
Omaha commission man and a prominent
business man of Omaha. The latter came
to this dty and took the stand and denied
the charge, while the South Omaha man
offered to come and give teetlmony. He
charged his wife with with being intimate
with a local grain man, but he proved an
alibi. He had no testimony but his own,
while the wife went on the stand, followed
by a number of women, and denied all of
He also charged his wife and sister-in-
law with trying to take his life by putting
strychnine In his food, but that was denied
by both of them. The case has caused
considerable Interest here and the sur
rounding country, because both of the peo
ple are prominent and are known to al
most every one. Yesterday afternoon Mr.
Glove was on the stand and made some
statements which hi sister-in-law, Mrs.
Mary Price, did not like, and she created
a furore by bounding to her feet and de
nouncing him as a "liar" and started
towards the witness stand, threatening to
do him great bodily harm. She had to be
taken from the court room, under instruc
tions from Judge Travis, who promised to
have her looked up if ah did not remain
Mrs. Glove, In her cross petition, first
asked for a separation and for main
tenance, but yesterday withdrew her pe
tition and filed another, asking for an ab
solute divorce. The ease was argued and
submitted to Judge Travis last evening,
who promised to hand down a decision m
the near future, but intimated that he
would not ar the husband a decree.
Relic of Boston
Tea Party Burned
Iran Cheat Dumped Into Harbor in
Collection Destroyed at Broken
BROKEN BOW, Neb., Jan. 21 (Special.)
One of the finest private stamp and curio
collections in the state was destroyed when
the court house here burned. The collec
tion belonged to Clerk of the District Court
George Malr, and was worth, at rough
estimate, 11,600. Mr. Malr has been about
forty years in making- the collection and
had Stamps and relics from all parte of the
world. Some of his rare stamps, which had
never been canceled, were from the Brit
ish colonies In North America, various ex
positions, Montserrat, West Indies, New
foundland and Hawaii. Any number of the
stamps were worth from 22 to 216 a piece,
while one sheet from the Hawaiian Islands
was valued at $160. He says he would not
have taken 2800 for the general collection
of stamps, as they can never be replaced
at this later day. Other curios that went
with the Ill-fated building were valuable
Indian relics, autograph letters, political
badges and tickets from the time of Lin
coln, and the most valuable of all, one of
the original sheetlron tea chests that was
dumped into Boston harbor during revo
lutionary days. " I
The Board of Supervisors went Into see-
slon today for tle purpose of taking imme
diate action on a new court house. Chair
man Morris says the board will make a
suggestion of a 6-mlll levy, then put It up
to the people of the county at a special elec
tion. This ought to Insure about 235,000. and
that, together with the Insurance, would
probably build a 260,000 court house.

REPRESENTATIVE TH I ESSEN
MAKES MONEY ON HOGS
Realises Profit of Sl.10fl.4l on Twenty-Two
Animals In One Season
FAIRBURT, Neb., Jan. 22. (Special.) A
profit of $1,106.41 on twenty-two sows in one
year seems almost like a fairy tale, yet
that Is a record that Representative John
P. Thlessen of Jansen is prepared to sub
stantiate. Mr. Thlessen Is a methodical
farmer and carefully keeps a debit and
credit account on all the stock he handles,
which enables him to tell what department
of the farm is 'paying him the best While
the case In question has yielded him con
siderably better than the average, yet he
says he hopes to do as well next year, pro
vided everybody In the country does not
go to raising hogs after reading this article.
Following are his figures, which will cer
ts Inly be Interesting, at least to those who
are engaged In the hog business: In No
vember, 1902, he bought twenty-two old
brood sows. He had unnsually good luck
with the offspring of these animals, which
contributed, very materially to the profits
of the venture. In April they had 170 pigs,
anKof these 153 survived, or an average
of nearly seven plga to a sow. Recently
he shipped a carload containing 102 of the
young hogs to the St. Joseph market. These
hogs weighed on an average of 9X pounds
each and brought IS. 40 per hundred, or
ll.sne.06 over and - above tbe cost of trans
portation and other expenses connected
with the shipment.
Last Chamberlain Case.
TECTTMSEH, Neb., Jan. 22. (Special.)
Word comes from Beatrice that the case
In the district court there against Charles
M. Chamberlain, ex-banker of Tecumseh,
has been dismissed. This Is a case wherein
Chamberlain is accused of having accepted
a deposit from C. H. Dennis after he knew
his bank to be Insolvent, and Is the only
pending case against the accused. County
Attorney Hugh Lamaster says the report
Is not correct. At the present time the
charge still hangs over Chamberlain and
the attorney says" it Is his present inten
tion to prosecute the case. He admits, how
ever, that under certain conditions the
oase might be dismissed, but it has not
been up to this time. It Is reported upon
good authority that Chamberlain will locate
at Pullman, Wash., where he has employ
ment with a collection agency and where
he has. been employed at times during the
last year or so.
