LINCOLN. May 5&.-fSjwlcal )-The
question whether a passenger Is com
pelled to unwrap his street car transfer
when he hands It to a conductor or
whether the conductor Is required to un
wrap It Is broucht out In an appeal from
the district court of Douglas county
wherein the Omaha and Council Bluffa
Street Railway company appeals from a
Judgment for 1300 secured by George Huff
Alwlne. against the company for mental
anguish which caused physical suffering
because of treatment given him by a
street car conductor on the Hantfjm
Park line In Omnha.
Alwlne said he handed the conductor
the transfer and that he reused to take
it and that lie pushed It In the coin
holder of the car entrance. The con
ductor tried to eject him from the car
and used language which caused him
such anguish that he became physlqally
unable to work. On the other hand the
company claims that Alwlne used abus
ive language to the conductor.
Th& testimony showed that the transfer
was rolled up In a' small roll and prof
fered to the conductor. He refused to
receive It that way and Alwlno shoved
It through tho hole In the coin receiver
and entered the car. Alwln asked for
damages, but received only tJOO.

holding an open meeting at the Llndell
hotel this evening.
He wanted It understood that he was
not defending or criticising any political
party or Individual, but that It was the

shown are as follows:

Attacks Lnnrt Commission.
With the cunning of tho average politi
cian Mr. Berge attempted to show that
the office of the land commissioner was
run on an extravagant basis stating that
the commissioner "kept an employe who
drew $1,B00 a year to execute"" deeds on
maturing school land contracts and all
the employe had to do was to wrlto In
tha printed deed the description of the
land and the grantee's name."
Had Mr. Brge taken the trouble to get
the facts In the case he would have found
out that this employe had something else
to do except "write In the description and
name of the grantee" In the deeds exe
cuted by th land commlssionr's office.
Not only docs this employe "write In the
description and the name of the grantee"
but whenever a piece of land Is sold
under contract ho Is compelled to go
through the entire history of tho land
and see that tho title Is clear as far as
the state Is concerned. On top of this he
has many other duties which as chief
clerk In the office are a part of his offi
cial duties and does pot simply "wrlto In
