A. 0. U. W. Sues Casulty
Firm on Bond of E. L Dodder
The mass of litigation now pending
in district court as a result of the
death of E. L. Dodder, prominent
lodge man and undertaker, whose
body was found in his automobile
January 5 with a revolver lying at his
side, was added to Friday when Union
Pacific Lodge No. 17, Ancient Order
of United Workmen, filed suit against
the Fidelity and Casualty company -f
The lodge is suing the bonding com
pany on a $.5,000 bond held by the
late undertaker. Dodder was treas
urer of the Workmen lodge.
The order alleges that on -the day
of his death Dodder drew a $1,000
check onthe United States National
Misappropriation of funds is alleged.
The petition says the alleged misap
propriation -was discovered January 23
and notice given to the Fidelity com
pany. l-itzgerald Tells Why He
' Holds Back the Names
"That interview 'in The Bee about
raising the assessments is not fair to
me in the way it is put," said County
Assessor Fitzgerald today. "I don't
think I said I don't want taxpayers
'swarming' in on me. I merely ex
plained that I was holding back the
notices of increased assessments and
did not care to give out the names
because I had a lot of important
work. to do before the Board of
Equalization meets that ought not
to be interrupted and folks with pro
anyway. I did make the remark that
there would be work enough to keep
the board busy the full twenty days,
but I didn't 'chuckle' about it. I am
attending strictly to the duties of
my office, not trying to make trouble
for anyone, but only to get a fair assessment."
Cattlemen Look for Fine
Season for Live Stock
Railroad men who have to do with
the cattle industry of Nebraska look
forward to this season as giving
promise of about the best that the cat
tlemen of Nebraska have ever ex
perienced. They say that the recent
rains have put the pastures in per
fect, condition and that the entire
range country is grassed over.
Out in the sand hill country there
has been so much rain that the lakes
and streams have beeen filled with
water and that there is no likelihood
of there being a shortage, no matter
what conditions later in the season
