OMA HOTEL CASE REVERSED
Supreme Court Differs from Lower
FANNING SHOULD BE A PARTY
Impossible to Ascertain Whnt Part
of Furnltnre Should lie Scstrr
rated, but Place Held to
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, May 4. (Special Telegram.)
The supreme court In an opinion this
morning In the action brought by former
County Attorney )ngilsh for an Injunc
tion against the operation of the Oma
hotel In violation of the Albert law re
verses the order of the district court
to remove and sell the furniture, but af
firms the district court as to closing up
the hotel and declares that Charles J3.
Fanning, owner of the property, should
be made a party to the action as defend
ant. Courts ItulliiR,'
The action was brought to compel the
closing of the hotel for one year and for
tho sale of tho furniture, but the court
holds that "It Is Impossible to separate
tho building Into parts and to segregate
one portion as that In which tho nuisance
existed. This being so, the only method
to abato tho same was to- declare tho
wholo of tho premises a public nulsanoi
and abate the name by the decree."
Therefore, the Judgment of tho district
court Is reversed as' to tho order remov
ing the fumltttro of the building and at
tlrmed as to the remainder of the decree
relating to tho closing of the hotel.
The syllabus of the court In relation to
the case reads:
Where a decree was rendered under
sections Sin, &7. inc., R. B. 191Z, declar
ing certain property a public nuisance and
enjoining the owner and occupant thereof
from further Illegal acts and no appeal
Is taken therefrom, upon appeal from
further provisions of the decree ordering
the furniture, etc., removed and the
building effectually closed for a year,
that portion of the decree not apperlsd
from Is a final adjudication as to the
existence of the nuisance.
In a proceeding for an Injunction and
to abate a nuisance under said section
where It Is shown that persona not parties
to tho suit are the owners of the furniture
In the building, the court is without
Jurisdiction to order the furniture to be
removed and sold. In such a case the
owners or the property sought to be
seized should be made parties defendant
to the action.
The provisions of the statute declaring
that the owner or lessee of any bullJr
used for the purpose of lewdness, is
signatlon or prostitution is guilty of a
nuisance and that the building and tho
furniture, fixtures, etc., contained therein
also constitute a nuisance; providing for
an Injunction against the continuance of
the same and for the abatement of Uio
nuisance, are not In conflict with tho
constitution of the United States or the
constitution of this state.
.Section S7?2, providing for tho assess
ment of a tax of $300 against the prop
erty, and against the persons maintaining
the nuisance, and the payment of a por
tion of the tax to the attorney prosecuting
the action, violates section 1, article Ix
of the constitution and section !. Rrtlcle
vlll thereof. It is, therefore, void and
however, was not an Inducement to the
passage of the not and Its elimination In
no wise arrects its validity.
