AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
. Contest for City Offices "to Follow
; Commissioner Decision.
TRAINOR WILL BEGIN SUIT
City Officials May All Br Involved
.. in Controversy that Penda
SerVlcea to Be Held In
" ', 0en Air.
I'ir Commissioners John J. Ryan and
Joseph Pivonka will have to stand trial
for malfeasance in office according to
the opinion handed down yesterday by
the supreme court. Ag an Inference from
the same opinion, Mayor Hoctor and the
present city administration may be
ousted In favor of former Mayor P. J.
Trainpr and his council who were beaten
at the-, election called last spring on
order 'f the court.
The: opinion of the court merely states
that 'Commissioners Ryan and Pivonka
are still serving the three year term for
which they were elected. It declare the
extension clause constitutional at d' In
conclusion appoints Judge Holcomb of
Broken Bow, a former governor and su
preme court justice to be referee in the
case against the accused commissioners.
As soon as the news was flashed from
, Lincoln, former Mayor P. J. Trainor an
nounced his intention to begin a suit
Monday for the seat of Mayor Hoctor.
"With Trainor will also be aligned former
Councilmen Franek, George . Hoffman,
August Miller, Mat Peterson, Tom Peter
son and Former City Clerk Frank Good."
Mayolr Hoctor, who has been expecting
the court decision for sqme time, de
clared that he was in no wise worried
over the situation. He contends that the
election' was held by order of court, and
that in ' any case the former officials
did not protet the election but partici
pated in it and accepted the results in
surrendering their seats.
The whole affair will, it is expected,
precipitate a bitter fight between the
Ins and outs with annexation as the
probable final settlement.
Aa far as the . ouster suit brought
against the Are and police commission
ers goes. It is admittedly a victory for
Bean Ringer and the men who stood
w.lth him in his long fight against the
bbard. "I am delighted at the news,"
said Mr. Ringer last night. "It is what I
expected of the supreme court of the
state. Now that the referee has been
appointed the case will come to trial and
some startling evidence will be brought
to. knowledge of the public."
Open Air bnrch.
'How would you like to go to church
In the park on Sunday? That is the new
departure In church cult to be adopted
by the United Protestant churches of
South Omaha during the summer. The
open air services will be called union
services and will be held by the united
congregations of all the Protestant
churches of the Magic City. It has been
decided to hold services in the different
parks on different Sundays. Already
Highland park has been decided upon
as the: scene of an open air service by
the united churches In the near future.
The Union services were carried on suc
cessfully last winter when the different
congregations assembled at neighboring
churches on appointed nights.
Cats Cause Rapture,
j Disturbed In his slumbers Friday night
jby 'the amouroui yowllngs of a feline
Rpmed" and Juliette, Anton XapinUs of
Twenty-ninth ana T trtleaped from
hi3 "uneasy couch and hurled a conven
ient lamp through his window into the
night.. He missed the cats, but Joe Sek-orlukQ,-a
'neighbor asleep beside his open
window, bears testimony by a gash on
. the forehead that Laplnus' aim Was not
! wasted. Naturally, If a neighbor passed
'you the -time of day by hurling a lamp
Jnto your boudoir at 10 o'clock at night
you would be peeved. Sekorisko Jumped
from his bed with a howl and took
after Laplnus. Laplnus hastily erected
barricades and called for a parley with
his Irate neighbor. Sekorisko, however,
had passed the time of parley and In
sistently invited Laplnus to come out
and dq battle. Then he sought the as
sistance, of the law, but friends pre
vailed, upon him to follow a milder
course. ' At present all communication is
cut off between Laplnus and Sekorisko,
there being an armed neutrality, so to

Stevp Gravich, a tonsorial artist with
parlors at Thirty-ninth and Q streets, has
begun suit against Peter Sar for the price
of a shave. "The suit was started yes
terday in Judge Collins' court and in
volves 60 "cents which Peter Snr says Is
altogether too much for denuding his
classic features of their hirsute decora
tions. Particularly he intimates that
Steve Gravich holds no diploma from the
barber's college and that, in fact, he is
no true artist. He complains that In any
case the price is too much. Gravich
says that the price was based on the
graduated scale of schedule K, and asks
that the court order Peter Sar to pay
the 60 cents forthwith.
Not being a good republican, Judge
Collins admits he is somewhat handi
capped in coming to a decision on tTTe
point. His honor, after perusing the
recommendations of the tariff commis
sion on wool schedules, stated that he
would probably refer the case to the
commerce court at Its next session
Hog Injures Child. ..
Herman Sweetenak, the 7-year-old son
of J. Sweetenak of Fifty-second and O
streets, had the Index finger of his right
hand chewed off yesterday morning by
a large hog confined in a pen near the
Sweetenak home. The child was lured
near the pen where the hogs are con
fined when the hired man went to feed
the animals yesterday morning. An .ear
of corn was dropped outside of the pen,
and little Herman picked it up and at
tempted to feed it to one of the hogs.
The animal chewed the little fellow's
finger off before assistance arrived. The
child was taken to Omaha, where he was
treated by physicians.
