( fFrom a tfiaff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Neb., May . (Kpeclal.) Ths
Supreme court today handed down an opin
ion In tha Wllann r.hiroprartlo cane, sent
here from Custer county. and reversed tha
derision given by the district court on ac
count of a defer In tha Information.
The lower court found that C. K. Wilson,
the defendant In tha cane, nasi been guilty
of practicing medicine without a license.
Today' opinion of the supreme court does
not allude to that phase of the matter, but
takes Ita action solely on a ont of the
Information defect. In the re vernal and re
manding for further nVoceedinjce the court
States that the defect which It banea Ita
action upon waa In that It did not allese
that the defendant Wilson Uvea In the
county where he waa aliened to hnve
practiced without a rreular Mue llreiu-e.
Judge BUaa A. Holcomb defended Wilson
In tha courts, aJlegedmn thst he had not
olated tha medical law In not obtaining
license to practice medicine because he
had not In fact prac'tlr d randiiJne in the
sens contemplated by the statute, and If
he did violate the medical law, then the
medical lav la unconstitutional. Assistant
Attorney General Edtterton for the state
argued that Wilson had violated the med
ical law, and that the Judgment of the
court Imposing a fine should ba Affirmed.
Jto Unease) Secored.
The medical law provides that one who
receives a license to practice medicine from
tha state board of hmealth shall file It for
record In tba county of his residence or In
tha county where ha Intends to practice.
Judge Root who wrote the opinion says the
information alleges that 'Wilson, "late of
Ouster county" violated the law by tiot
caving1 on record a license In Custer county,
N jflut tha Information does not allege that
TVater county la his residence, hence all
' that tha Information charges might be true
and still tshe defendant might not be guilty
of violating tba lomr for ba might have a
license on record In bis home county. The
court saya tha Information Is fatally de
fective and tha motion to quash should
have been sustained. Tha oyllabus of the
opinion la aa follows:
"A statement In an Information that the
accused did. treat and profess to heal a
frcrtaln named patient without having a
l.-ertlflcata or license Issued by tha state
Voard of health, and filed la tha office of
the clerk of Ouster county, Nebraska, as
required by law does not negative the fact
that a license lamed by tba state bo aid may
ave been tiled In tha etflca of the county
cleric of tha county where (ha accused re
sides." Hamtlto int . gname'a.
The motion to vacate a Judgment f re
versal in tha case of Hamilton county
against tha Aurora Rational banle. , tha
county having asked for- tha vacation on
tho ground that Judge Sedgwick waa not
qualified to act and that without but vote
there could not bava been a reversal, baa
been overruled by the supreme court. tThe
original suit involved the-question of re
covery of " Interest on Hamilton county
funds, no bank halving bid for tha money
and the county treasurer having kept the
money In the Aurora National Jjank- with-
out tha payment of Interest. The bank
and tha county treasurer vera both, sued
tha county, but recovery waa 'made
from neither one of the defendanta In the
case. The contention by tha county - that
Judge Sedgwick waa not qualified to 'act
arose because of the. fact that ne, perore
his election to tha supreme court, acted
aa attorney for the county attorney of
. Hamilton county when tha matter first
came up in the district court.

preme court rendered today. Ths oomt
has derided that none of the money
found on the yegirmen shall go to the
local officers aa their reward for arrest
ing the men. Chief Malone claimed 70
hut the evidence according to the decision
does not Justify his claim thereto. The
Judgment affirmed must be paid to the
indemnity company which Insured the
Chapman bRnk against robbery and which
paid all loss Incurred by the burglary,
which occurred in November, 1905.
The lowefcourt gave a Judgment for
$1,204.62 against Malone and Cooper and
a Judgment for $3,022.02 against two of
the robbers, John Burke and Thomas
Relley, who were later convicted snd are
now serving time In the penitentiary.
John Dorn, a third man arrested, had only
about $9 when het waa placed under
The supreme court haa affirmed tho
Judgment of the district court against
Malone and Cooper, Judge Sedgwick not
alttlng In the case.
The company paid the hank $2,000 In
surance money snd took an assignment
from the hank of Its claim upon the
money found In possession of the rob
bers. Malone alleged tnat the robhers
had assigned their money to their attor
neys and that he would have to pay it to
the attorneya, hut If It were found that
the money belonged to the indemnity
company then he waa entitled to $700 of
it aa reward money due from the com
pany. The indemnity company sued to re
strain Malone and Coper from transfer
ring the money to -attorneys of tha rob
bers or from retaining any of It as a re
ward for the arreat of the criminals.
The supreme court in ita opinion says:
"A court of equity may enjoin a police
oflcer from transferring a fund taken by
him from burglars who procured it by
robbing a bank and may restore It. to
the owner thereof."
The robbers alleged that the money
taken from them was not the Identical
money taken from the bank, but tha su
preme court holds that lnaamuch as some
of the money found upon them waa Iden
tified as money of the bank it may ba aa

CENTRAL CITT, Neb., May C BpecIal.)
A case that has attracted considerable
attention over the county, and stirred np
considerable feeling in the neighborhood
where the plaintiff lived, waa disposed of
In the district court here today when tho
jury In the case of William Worland
against the Union .Pacific Railway com
pany brought In a verdict finding no Issue
of action. The case occupied the entire at
tention of the court for the week, and after
the verdict was rendered the court ad
journed until the following Monday. , The
plaintiff, William Worland, has been a
drayman at Chapman for a number of
years. On the morning of March 10, 1910,
while In the discharge of his regular voca
tion, he attempted to cross the tracks with
his team and dray from the depot. Appar
ently he did not see the fast approaching
licm Angeles limited bearing down upon
him. Before he had cleared the track the
engine crashed into the rear end of the
wagon. The wagon was literally smashed
to kindling wood, the team was uninjured,
but Mr. Worland was tossed Into the air,
and when he was picked up was a mass of
cuts and bruises. He was taken to the
hospital st Grand Island, and tt was found
that he had sustained many bruises and
fractures. The railroad contended there
was ample opportunity for the plaintiff to
see the approaching train, and that there
was negligence on his part. Photographs
of the place where the accident occurred
were Introduced, and at the conclusion of
the hearing the Jury went down to Chap
man to view the scene first hand. The
jury deliberated for about ten minutes and
returned a verdict of no cause of action.

Small County is Setting Pace for Some
of Its Larger Sisters.

of Forty Miles ot Model
CENTRAL CITT. Neb , May 1 peelal)
Merrick county, while one of the smallest
counties In the state. Is certainly setting a
pace that should be followed by some of her
larger slstera In the summer of 110 a
government good reads expert was secured
from Washington, and under his direction
two miles of model road was built at a
cost of per mile. At the time of the
building arrangements were made to have
all of the township officers In the county
come In and learn how good roads coul l
bo built through sand, which was the men
difficult of construction.
The lessons of 1310 were so well learned
that In February, 1911, the good roads en
thuelasts formed an association, with H.
E. Olatfelter as president and Joe A. Hays
as secretary to build forty miles of roads
along the line of the Union Pacific railway
from the east to the west line of the
county. Central City business men donated
WOO In one day's soliciting for the pur
pose. The farmers along the proposed
route, almost to a man, have pledged two
days' work each, and sU townships
through which the road runs are throw
ing up the necessary machine grades,
which is to be top dressed with clay or
gumbo by the donation work.
Thlse two pictures were taken two
miles west of Central City on a sandy
stretch roat The first shows wagons
belngf loaded wth gumbo soli by an ele
vated grader one-half mile from where
toe road Is being constructed. The other
picture shows the twenty farmers' teams
dumping their loads on the sand road.
The.xe twenty teams put In nearly 400 loads
of dirt per day. and put from two to three
cubl yards per rod of road at a cost of
about 1.100 per mile for completed road.
The failure of the lata legislature to give
the btate an up-to-date road law has not
deterred our people from going ahead In
their road movement. It shows how an
up-to-date,-hustling bunch of farmers can
do things In spite of an adverse law-making
May 13 and have been fixed as the
days for the donation work on finishing
the road, but from present activities much
of the road will be finished before that
date. It is the purpose of the organiza
tion to maintain this road by means of
the King road drag for one year after
competition to more thoroughly demon
strate the neceaslty and economy of keep
ing a road good after building It right.
Permanent cement culverts are to replace
the wooden bridges on this line, and are
being provided by the county from the In
