The supreme court has held that Insuf
ficient evidence aj offrreu to Justify a
Judgment against the Model Steam Laun
dry company of Omaha, asulnst which a
Jury found a claim tor damages in the suit
of Martha M. Johnson, an employe. The
court says that the plaintiff did not prove
that the negligence of the master was a
proximate cause of Injury and adds that
the evidence Is Insufficient to sustain a
verdict for the plaintiff.
Abraham Rosenberry of Douglas county
keeps his fences and trees on a roud in the
northern part of Douglas county unim
paired and may tell the county commis
sions who want to pull them up to desist.
In 1MJ Roaunberry bought sixty acres of
land, forty acres on one side of a half sec
tion road and twenty acres on the other
side. He built fences and set out trees so
that a roadway of only thirty feet re
mained. After he had done this bis neigh
bors followed his practice. Then Martin
Tlbke, at that time a county commlss oner,
told Mr. Rosenberry that he proposed to
grade a sixty-six-foot road where the half
section Una ran.
Story of Case.
Roaen berry disliked to see his fences
torn up and his trees chopped down. He'
ran to a court for an Injunction. He got
ft and now the supreme court has affirmed
this act, leaving Rosenberry In possession
of one good Injunction which he can pull
affectively on the county' whenever it tries
to widen the road. The court give this
reason for upholding the injunction, the re
quirements here laid down for not having
been complied with; "In an application to
the Board of County Commissioners to es
tablish a new public road, under the statue
In foroe In 1874, the posting of four notices
la the manner required by the statue, and
the presentation of a petition to the board
for such road, signed by at least ten land
holders, residents of the county, accom
penied by sworn proof of the posting of
the notices, stating whan and where such
fcotices are posted, are essential pre-re-
qui sites which must be complied with be
fore the board can aoquire any Jurisdlc
tlon over the subject matter of the loca
tion and opening of such new road."
Mar I'M Lands.
The supreme court has perfected the
tight of the First Catholic, church of Lin
aoln to use the lands now occupied by a
Church and parochial school, holding that
when the governor. In 1. acting under
authority of the legislature, conveyed cer
tain lands to the trustees, gave these lands
to the church rather than the trustees and
that It was not necessary that the church
be Incorporated In order to get the benefit
of this deed. The opinion was written by
Chief Justice Reese.

whether he had a right to appeal to the
district court, when the board of equali
