LINCOLN. Aug. 29.-(SpecIal.)The sen'
sational Boone county divorce case of
Reynoldson against Reynoldson will have
an ainng in the supreme court of Ne
brarka, an appeal from tho district court
of that county having been made by Mrs.
Beynoldson this morning. '
Four years ago ChariC3 Reynoldson, a
very wealthy Boone county farmer, said
to be worth about $175,000, was married
to a woman known as Vivian Boyer. Soon
after their marriage Mr. Reynoldson dis
covered that his wife had not been In
the past all that she should have been
and besides had been living with a man
by the name of James S. Boyer, known as
"Blackie" by some of his associates.
Reynoldson sued for a divorce and dur
ln gthe pendency thereof it was discov
ered that Boyer had filed suit for a
divorce from Mrs. Boyer in the district
court of Cherry county and that the same
was granted February 12, 1912. The plea
.was then made by the attorneys of Rey
'ryjldson that If, Mrs. Reynoldson was the
jwife of Boyer at the time of her marriage
ito Reynoldson the marriage should be
I set aside as void. The testimony in the
district court, according to the papers
(filed in the supreme court of the evl
Idence was of a very racy nature, result
ing a decree by the court that Vivian
was the common law wife of Boyer and
as such her marriage to Reynoldson was
void and the court annulled the ceremony.
The case has been very bitterly fought
In Boone county courts, nearly every
attorney in Albion being retained on one
Side or the other. The woman makes the
appeal to the supreme court and asks
for $!8 a month and the use of the
house in which she has resided since
the case started, during the pendency of
the hearing in the supreme court.

but paid to the Water board.
A resolution directing Water Commis
sioner Howell to make this settlement
was adopted by the board at a meeting
The resolution further stipulated that
$73,0C0 would be paid the company for
loose, unnppralscd property and that the
board waived all claim for shrinkage
since the appraisal of this property in
Mr, Howell said the 173,000 was paid
when the city assumed ownership of the
plant, and that the board had decided to
waive Its claims because the cost of ap
praising the property again would be
considerable and that worki of the water
commissioner and the board would be
retarded by a lot of "fuddlln" around.
Gives Packers a Ilenrlnir.
The board has diiected that a rate o(
8 cents per 1,000 gallons, to be charged
the South Omaha packing houses and
stock yards, be put Into effect, the reso
lution Authorizing the rate to be retro
active, dating from July 1 of this year.
This raise has been opposed by the
packing houses and the board has' In
vited Interested parties to be present at
a meeting to be held Friday afternoon
at 2 o'clock.
By this increase, S cents per 1,000
gallons, the Water board expects to In
crease Its yearly revenue at least 175,000.
The packers now consume one-third the
Water Commissioner Howell Is author
ity for the statement that the ttock
yards and packing houses must use water
pumped from the Omaha plant.
A plant Is being built in South Omaha
to supply tfiestock yards district. It is
expected to fie completed some time this
fall. It Is designed to replace the serv
ice furnished by Omaha.
Mr. Howell and attorneys maintain
that when the court forced the Water
board to take over the South Omaha serv
ice of the water works It gave the board
the same right to operate in South Omaha
hnt It has in Oamahn. If this contention
Is true, and the courts will be asked to
Mi.Uiii such a contention (f the South
Omaha plant ever goes into ' operation,
tho South Omahana have no right to
construct or operate a competing plant,
It Is said.
I,et Contract for Main.
Contract for the construction of the
lorty-elght-lnch main from Florence to
Miller park was let to the John J. Hanl
ghen company of Omaha for $114,000, this
t elng the lowest bid.
The pipes to be used In this main will
be of three-eighths-inch thickness and the
joints will be steel riveted. Hanlghen
will be put under contract to complete
the work by Decembtr 1, next.
Jackson McKensIe, who secured the
contract for laying the south half of the
main, will be given another contract, be
cnuse they have refused to lay the main
down Twenty-eiKhth avenue for the fig
ure they bid on Twenty-sevnth street.
This change Will cost the board 18,353
additional, as far as the contractors are
Purchase of from thirty to fifty car
loads of sulphate of alumina, a coagulate
used In clarifying the water at the plant,
was authorized by resolution, the water
commissioner to buy as needed.

: In an attempt to placate the protest-.
ants Mr. Howell nad the ocedp-nd-ence
between the Water board and the
council that led to the issuing of a per
mit 'or Twenty-eighth avenue Instead of
Twenty-seventh street. '
'It will cost us more .noney. to to
down Twenty-eighth avenue," sail How
ell, "but It Is necessary to et this
water main through. The people need
the service and the Water board, in or
der ' to get It through, Is willing to
soend $25,000, although we prefer the
Twenty-seventh street route."
The water commissioner was bom
barded with questions, charges that
money was being misspent and asser
tions that there "was no Justice In the
city hall." which "housed a eod.ah aristocracy."
Then John Smith was chosen treasurer
and money to secure a lawyer and seek
an Injunction was subscribed. A com
mittee had been appointed at a previ
ous meeting with power to secure legal
Objections to Twenty-eighth avenue
finally simmered down to this: The
property-holders object to paying the
cost of condemnation proceedings which
will be necessary when appraisers re
port on the damage to 2,150 feet of pri
vate property and this property is con
demned. Mr. Howell pointed out that this ex
pense would be Incurred whenever the
street was opened, whether It was for
a water main or other, public Improve
ments, and that objections at this time
would . simply result In delaying , the
work on the main, which ought to be

ises to overshadow all of the former ones.
It Is expected that all of the 500 Omaha
Elks will be . at the annual bake,
