Packers Win Out
in Food Law Case
SIDKET, Neb., Tib. a-Rpeclal Tele
gram.) The prosecutions under th pur
food law Instituted by Inspect or MsLaln
agalnat th Armour-company and Swift
4 Co. were today diamlss-4 by th county
court after th evidence of ths stats wss
all Introduced. The particular violation
of th law charged was failure to have s
tamp allowing net weight on packages
of lard found by th Inspector not to be
so stamped. . The defendants put up a
stiff fight on the Jurisdiction, ef the oourt.
and after argument, of counsel the court
took the. matter under advisement and
dismissed the cans.
A number of rusea the Inspector had
already arranged to Institute will now be
dropped and proceedings properly Insti
tuted where the sale by lbs wholesaler
can be established.
It developed during the trial of the two
cases referred to abov that the stickers
showing the net weight had fallen off
the package In transit or In being
-handled by the retailer, and that to meet
such contingency tbe wholesaler provided
the retailer with stickers to place on the
packages when It waa discovered that the
sump, originally placed on them had
slipped off. ' '
This fact waa testified to by the mcr
chants to whom the lard was Kid and It
seemed from the evidence that the whole
salers bad made an honest effort to com
ply with th law. ,
Miles and Mcintosh, who defended for
the packers, bad their cases too well tn
hand for th state to make any headway.

puted townships the boards Instead of
making the levy to specify so many mill,
for road purpose, so many mills for
bridge purpose snd so many mills for
general purposes, threw the assessment
all together and mad It as so many mills
for all purposes. Now tbe railroad maln-
taina that this assessment ss erron
eously made, claiming that all purposes
means general purpose. The law for
bids the levying of mora than two mills
for genera! purpose, and It la on the
claim that thl all purpose levy exceeds
the two mill that the contest Is brought
In no case doea the levy exceed the
amount that may be levied for all pur
poses combined, but th claim Is that
