The right of the Omaha Council Bluff

of a vlgoroua legal dispute before the
supreme court today. The matter camo
up in the shape of an Injunction to pre

under a resolution adopted by the Omaha
The city makes the claim that the com
pany has a franchise to operate street
railway, but not to sell llg-ht. The com

asserts give It authority to furnish cur
rent to whomsoever will buy. The city
on the other hand denies that such Is the

In the case, has been furnishing
current to a limited number of business
houses for twenty year and that In the
llrhtlng department there Is Invested a
sum of 1140.000, which returns a revenue
of $20,000 yearly.
John L. Webster, attorney for the com
pany, declared to the court that equity
will not permit a city to recognise such
a right for twenty years, permitting a
company to Invest large sums for ma
chinery and passing ordinances requiring
the company to build conduits and then
arbitrarily, without making proper com
pensation, order the wires cut.
Neighbors In Court.
Attorneys for the Royal Neighbors of
America appeared before the state su
preme court today In an effort to over
turn the $1,000 judgment obtained against
that order In Douglas county by heirs of
Mart Schlank. The deceased held at the
time of her death a policy for $1,000 In
that order, which opposes the collection
on the ground that misrepresentations
were made at the time the woman was
examined for entrance into the lodge.
The fraternity alleges that the woman
asserted in her application she was born
July 15, 1S60. and that she was married
October 14. 1874. These answers, the
lodge's attorneys said, were false and un
true, asserting that the woman was born
prior to July 15. 1800. and that she was
married in 1871 On this account they
aver the society should be released from
the terms of the policy.

Salute at Wedding
May Be Law Violation
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Sept. 22.(Special.) Martin
Mauder, a Russian, ran foul of the Shoe
maker law passed at the laat session of
the state legislature when he tried last
night to attend a Russian wedding with
a revolver safely concealed In his hip
pocket. The young man stated In police
court today that he was merely observing
a custom of his country which in effect
is to-fire shots In the air in order to
give the bride a salute.
It Is considered uncomplimentary, the
young man told the court through an in
terpreter, if no shots are fired, the saying
being thereby carried out "that the bride
is not worth a shot of powder."
The new law under which Mauder was
brought up as the first violator in this
county sets out a penalty of a fine not
to exceed 11.000 or to exceed two years In
the state penitentiary. Dirks and brass
or iron "knucks" come In the same class
with concealed weapons and render the

KEARNEY, Neb.. Sept. 21-Speclal.)
Senator Noriia Brown In an address to
the students of the State Normal school
here on the peace treaty declared that
the final ratification of the treaty by the
senate was endangered by the senator
who placed "the prerogative and dignity
of the senate against the peace of the
"I am against the prerogative," said
the senator, "and for the peace of the
world." He then defended the peace
treaty and ridiculed the Idea that the
retention of the power by the senate to
decide whether or not the nation should
go to war was one of more importance
than world-wide peace.
In the treaty as submitted to the
senate by President Taft the power of
compulsory arbitration was likened by
the senator to the power of the courts
of the land which settle the disputes
between Individual, the peace treaty being
simply an agreement to refer disputes be
tween nations to a permanent board cf
arbitration for final settlement.
"There will be no more war with
these contracts signed," concluded Sen
ator Brown after criticizing the first
