motion, which were made to Judge Red

Kemp and John O. Yelser for Tigh, de
veloped tho fact that one of the court's
instructions to the Jury may have been
erroneous. The Instruction was to the

controling cause of the alienation. The
contention of the plaintiff was that he
should recover If the defendant's acts

to this view he will order a new trial.
He took the matter under advisement for
a few days.

Saloon Men War
Over Good Stand
Discovering that at the end of the fls.
cl year there will be a surplus of about
$7,000 in the fire fund, the Hoard of the
Fire and Police Commissioners yesterday
afternoon adopted a resolution requesting
authority from the city council to buy
two automobile runabouts, costing not to
exceed 11,250 each, one for the use of each
of the assistant fire chiefs. The same reso
lution carried a request for authority to
purchase 8,000 feet of fire hose.
As a license board the commissioners
heard protests filed by the Anti-Saloon
league against the issuance of aaloon
licensee to Emll Hanson, 1S3 Chicago
street; Frank Streypa, 201 South Ninth
street; and Henry C. Rahn, 130" Farnam
street. Hanson andxStreypa were charged
with selling liquor after hours, and Rahn
with conducting a disorderly place. The
presentation of objections was conducted
by Thomas Darnell of Lincoln, attorney
for the league. O. A. Wardell and Leroy
Henry, detectives for the league, fur
nished the testimony.
The detectives testified that In both the
saloons named they purchased and drank
liquor after S o'clock In the evening. The
proprietors denied that they have violated
the law and said If liquor has been sold
after 8 p. m. it has been without their
knowledge and consent.
In the Rahn case Sergeants Vanous and
SamuolHon testified they were sent to the
aaloon November 14 and arrested eleven
women who were sitting around tablea in
the rear drinking beer and other liquor.
Decision was reserved In ail cases.
The protests against granting licenses
to Louis Peterson, Hans Netlsen and F.
M. Walker, all of whom desire to con
duct saloons at Twenty-first and Cum
ing streets, were called, but on motion
of the attorneys for the applicants the
hearings were continued until Thursday
afternoon. This Is a ease In which each
saloonkeeper for business reasons Is
trying to keep the others out.
