tary of the National league.
Should any of tha games be postponed

ing games was adopted:

neen by the American league.

I any to recover money. Wilson la al
leged to have made by the manipula
tion of tha company's stocks.

in at Speedway Races.
With the Indomitable Billy Pierce at tha
wheel, the Colby Car cleaned up almost
everything In sight Wednesday afternoon
on the Omaha speedway, when the first
day's racing of the three-day meet was
held. In the opening race the Colby
traveled the ten miles In 10:02, but was
followed close enough by the Firestone
Columbus and Page-Detroit, who wort
second and third money, respectively, to
make the race interesting. Two other
cars started in thla event, but engine
trouble which developed early in the
race put them out of the running.
In the ten-mile race for cars under 231
cubic Inches displacement the Colby was
barred because of its high power. Here
the Firestone-Columbus and the Abbotb
Detroit put us as pretty a race as was
ever seen. Eoth cars held close to each
other all around the ten laps and each
passed the finishing line In the same
second. The Firestone-Columbus won
first money, having made the ten miles
In 11:47V. The Abbott-Detroit crossed
one-fourth of a second later. This event
was one of the big cards of the day and
furnished more excitement than any
other race. The Chalmers, driven by
Will Bruner, made a good start, but
carbureter trouble put the car to the
rear on the sixth lap.
In the last automobile event of the day
tha Colby won hands down In an interest

Xerr of Omaha Vice President and
Important Papers Are Heard by the
Abstracters at Their Varloos
Sessions and They See
Verne Hedge of Lincoln was re-elected
president of the Nebraska Association of
Bonded Abstracters; J. Fred Kerr of
Omaha, vice president, and C. C. Sadler
of Omaha, secretary-treasurer. The ex
executlve committee will decide the place
of next year's meeting.
The association decided to make every
effort to land the 1912 convention of the
National Association of Title Men for
Omaha, and all members who can are
urged to attend the national meeting this
fall. It was decided to apply at once
for membership In the national body and
to secure the necessary money for per
capita entrance fees, the entrance fee of
the state organization was raised from 10
to $6 and the annual dues from $3 to S3.
C. S. Kltchel of Milwaukee and At
torney William Baird of Omaha discussed
technical problems of the abstract busi
ness. S. M. Sadler of Omaha spoke
Wednesday afternoon on "The Ethics
of tho Business." M. W. Folsom
of Lincoln on "Relations of Mortgagee
to Abstracter" and W. W. Wyckoff of
York on the "Torrens System." Mr.
Wyckoff said the system would not glm
pllfy real estate transfers to the extent
claimed for it, that registration of prop
erty under the system would not be
more convenient for the properly owner
than the present system of abstracts
and that the average register of deeds,
elected on a party ticket, would not be
capable of passing on the title of prop
erty, a duty devolving upon him under
the Torrens system.
The delegates attended tha parade thla
afternoon. The convention will close to
night with a banquet at the Rome.
