in his church at Holdrege, Neb., last

thought that this proved too severe

Mr. Swanberg had been president
of the Nebraska conference for five
; years. He presided over the recent
meeting of the conference about a

I This prevents any possibility of the

In addition to the life insurance,
there is a possibility that Mrs. Way

for which Mr. Wayman had ciaims
against Cook county. This money was
collected by the decedent in fees when
he was state's attorney and is he'.d
by Homer K. Galpin. former clerk of
the municipal court, until the courts
decide whether the county or Mr. Way
man is entitled to it.

state supreme court had passed finally
upon .the constitutionality of the act
which compelled state's attorneys to

Before John J. Healy became state's
' attorney the question of the right of
' the state's attorney to fees that he
! collected had never been questioned
; and previous state's attorneys had

' went into office he was pledeed to
' turn over the fees collected and d'd j
so. but when he left the criminal court
