Coal Kntrlra I relied.
By a decision, .handed, down yesterday
the commissioner of . the general land
flee haa held for cancellation thirty-two
coal cash entrlea. embracing valuable coal
lands. In the lender. Vyo., land dletrlct.
upon the ground that theee entrlea were
nade fraudulently In pursuance of a con
spiracy and by meana of procured or
"dummy" entrymen. .
The mod.ua operandi by which thee en
trlea were made was the procuration by
the moving spirit hi the transaction, who
were Indicted by taa I'nlted t tales grand
jury In Wyoming, of friends and ac
quaintances, nesrly all of whom were
residents of .New York City and vicinity,
to make application and entry for the
lands Involved These entrymen In gen
eral were Wtnorant as to the location and
value of, the- lands, had no Intention of
developing the property, and executed the
various papers in connection with the ap
plications aa a favor to. the one approach
ing them regarding the matter.
How riia Worked.
In many instamies the-entrymen were
given ! or $! for tha use of their names.
The purchase prica of these lands was
paid to tha local land of flue at Lander by
one of the conspirators by a check drawn
against a deposit made to the credit of
himself and a. co-conspirator. Thereafter
tha entrlea were transferred, some to the
Northwestern Coal , company and the
others to the Owl. Greek Coal company, a
corporation organised by the promoters
of the scheme in pursuance of their pur
pose to laka over , the lands.
The government proceedings were bit
terly fought, .but the contentions of the
overnmcnt . agents that entries were
.raudule it baa been sustained by the find
ing by ihe general 'nd office.
If I hee decisions are sustained by the
department of the Interior, to which an
appeal lies, it will result in the restoration
to the public domain of about 9,500 acres
of real land valued at 'about a million
dollars. ' ' ' (" "

HIBBARD TRIAL NEAR AN END
Few Wltacsaea Reaaala to Teatlfy la
Caeo of Aged Maa Charged
Only a few witnesses will remain to be
examined wben court convenes this morn
ing In the case of Frank Hibbard, charged
with maliciously stabbing Hans Knudsen
of Irvlngton. July SI. 1909, with Intent to
wound or kill. It Is probable the case will
go to tha Jury about noon.
The defendant Is a man past seventy
years of age. During the supremacy of the
populiet party in Nebraska, he served the
state as one of Us legislators, being widely
known ss one of the populist leaders. A
suit Is also pending against Mr. Hibbard,
brought by Mr. Knudsen. for llj.000 per
sonal Injury damages. It Is likely the re
sult of this case will depend largely upon '
the outcome of the one now being heard, j
It Is alleged that after an altercation
between the two men on the day in ques
tion when Knudsen stepped out of the
store Hibbard stabbed him below the heart.
A physician testified that the wound
caused Knudsen to stay in the hospital
eight days and that he needed the aer
vices of a physician after that. The trouble
started when Hibbard asked Knudsen.
who, besides being grocer, was postmaster,
for the mail. Knudsen asked him to wait
until be finished waiting on a customer,

Judge Has Girl Ride
Horse to Decide if
Bismarck Adjourns Court to Have a
Hone Tried Out on Six
Judge William Altstadt entertslned an
Interested" audience Wednesday when he
held an out-of-doors session of court, a
part of which consisted Of a very pretty'
alrl riding a supposedly unruly horse along
Sixteenth street between Farnaro and
Douglas. The case the Judge was deciding
was that of Captain W. Kiddle of the Sal
vation Army against one Louis Summers,
and consisted of a divergence of opinion as
to who was the right ana lawful owner of
one brown horse.
As fsr as could b determined from the
tsngled evidence entered st Judge Alt
stadt's court the horse had two of these
same right and lawful owners, but another
question aroso in the course of ths trial.
Was or was not the horse vicious?
The question waa met by "Little Bis
marck" in his usual definite manner. The
only way in which to tell whether that
horse was unruly, and perhaps unmanage
able by a woman was to have a woman
ride him. 8o said, so done.
A pretty girl clerk wss obtained, who
averred that unruly horses were her fear
and dread, but in the cause of Justice she
would do anything. Forthwith she mounted
the horse and it must tie admitted that
nothing meeker than that said equine specl
man was ever seen on the streets of
Omsha. The only thing that would have
frightened him would have been the fear
of losing a feed.
The "schudge" and his entire court snd
all the witnesses wero present to look on
the riding episode and from the crowd that
appeared, bystanders appreciated the sight

the new ordinance provides that the net

He has a similar ordinance for baled hay.
The Inspector haa come to the rescue of

makes it a misdemeanor for any truckman
