LINCOLN, lrr. W. fHpeclal.l The
stotm clouds which have been hanging
over the Woodmen and Cnlon f'lre In
suraii'e companies are l.kely either to de
velop Into n downpour or be dissipated
with the filing of the report of Ihe ex
aminers, whn hnv teen at work on the
hooks of th" two companies. Tha re-
I yiti i iTuuauiy win oe rueo wiTnin a rew
days. The proposed ronsolldstlnn of the
two Lincoln comrmnlre hns been In the
courts and an Injunction Issued restrain
ing sich consolidation previous to the
snnuel meeting of Ihe stockholders Jan
uary 4, when they will vote on the ques
tion. Auditor Barton objects to the
wording of the circular which has been
sent to the stockholders, which by Impli
cation, says that Ihe Insurnn" depart
ment and the -auditor approve the con
solidation, whereas Mr. Harton a f erts
the fact to bn that neither himself nor
the Insurance department has officially
endorsed or opposed tha consolidation.
Whether In the finality they will endorse
cr not rtependa upon conditions of the
companies and whether the terms of the
consolidation are equitable to all con
cerned. Payments to Officers.
Methods pursued to bring about the
consolidation, however, are likely to pro
duce the real fireworks and according
to Auditor Harton may result in action
against some prominent men In Lincoln
i ami iiiv emir, ii Hiijrrnrs irJin me rec
' ord In the Injunction case that the offi
cers of the Woodmen company paid the
officers of tho t'nlon, which has been In
existence for sbout twenty-five years,
IM.OUO to resign, that the officers of the
Woodmen company might succeed them.
This was previous to the Injunction pro
ceedings and they actually did succeed
the old officers of the Cnlon. Mr. aBrtnn
holds that such payment was a diversion
of funds of the Woodmen company and
that those, who authorised It payment
rnuet return It to the Woodmen treaaury
or the Insurance department may be Im
pelled to takn legal action to compel
them to do o.
Former Oovernor Sheldon, Mayor Arm
strong of Lincoln. J. W. Walt and K. II.
Marshall of this city are Involved In th
payment or receipt of the money.
Whether the payment of the money will
have any effect on the flnlnclal stand
ing tff the Woodmen company, Mr. Bar
ton declared, would only In disclosed
by the examination, but whether It did
or did not ha held It waa a di
version of tha funds of the company.
Still another act of the officials in the
proposed consolidation has come ' under
the ban of the Insurance department. A
considerable amount of the business of
the Cnlon company. It la charged, ha
been reinsured In the Woodmen and that
commission had been paid for such re
Insurance, which the auditor holds is
contrary to law and In addition he Is pot
pleaaed with the reinsurance pending ac
tion on tha consolidation, as such act. If
the consolidation should fall of approval
by either th stockholders or tha Insur
ance department, would tend to weaken
the Union company. .

John K. Walsh of Humboldt, who
aspires to be a delegate to the democratic
national convention will find nior
trouble In accomplishing his desire than
he anticipates. II sent to the aecretary
pf slate an affidavit of his intention, sup
posing that waa alt that waa necessary,
btu Seoretary Walt ha written hi that
a regular primary petition ia required
and thut he will have to obtain 500 sig
natures to the petition and that the
signers must be distributed among two
thirds ot the counties of tha First Con
gressional district. Mr. Walt I preparing
a circular setting forth In concise form
all of the requirements of the primary
law, which he will send to anyone ap
plying for the en me. He siys he finds
considerable apprehension regarding the
provisions of the law and that such a
circular will be the boat and most expe
ditious way ot anttlng Inquirers right. He
will consult th attorney general before
completing the circular to obtain an opin
ion whether or not the petition provision
applies to purty committeemen.
t ouali Asaeasor
In response to an Inquiry from Reward
county the attorney general haa ren
dered an opinion construing the law ex
tending the terma of county aeaeaaora for
one year. Cnder th old law theae offi
cials would have given place to new one
January I. and the question was whether
the old officials simply held over without
any formality or whether It wax neces
sary to requallfy and gtve a new bond.
The attorney general rules that the old
official must requallfy and give, a new
bond, all th procedure being th same
aa though he were taking orflce for a
new term. The decision of the supreme
court in th case of Andrew Koewater,
city engineer cf Omaha, is cited by th .
attorney general as a precedent,
