It was a foregone conclusion that

Niobrnra , Neb. , Aug. 27. Special to
The News : The Lament will case ,
which was to have been held at Cen
ter next Wednesday before the county
judge , was settled out of court here
Saturday. It Involved about 400 acres
of land adjoining and part of the town
between the nrteslon well race and
the Northwestern depot. It Is claimed
that William Lnmont made his will
only twelve days before his death , In
which ho left all his estate to his eld
est son , Frank , and ignoring the young
er son , Scott. Ho had seen neither of
the boys since the early 'CD's , when
their mother left and took them with
her to her old Pennsylvania home ,
where they wore educated and given
trades. On his deathbed Lament sent
for the oldest son , who was with him
at the time of his death and settled
the estate for himself. Scott came on
early in the summer to investigate
matters and engaged counsel to break
the will. Negotiations recently fol
lowed , and Saturday's meeting of coun

share in the estate save some personal

Washington , Aug. 25. In the next

list of western congressman whom he
will put either on an "honor roll" oren

organized labor is interested.
Recently President Gompers sent
out a circular letter to all senators and

CAN SIDEWALK BE TORN UP WITHOUT -
OUT CONDEMNATION NOTICE ?
B. HIGHT IS THE PLAINTIFF
Oscar Rlchey , Street Commissioner , Is
Made Defendant In Case Tore up
Walk on Order of Mayor , Who Says
It Was Dangerous at the Time.
Is the city street commissioner crim
inally liable for tearing up a sidewalk
on authority of the mayor before
thirty days' notice is given to the
property owner ? This is the legal
point which was settled yesterday af
ternoon in a jury trial held In Justice
Eiseloy's court . B. Ilight is the plain
tiff and City Street Commissioner Os
car Rlchey the defendant.
It Is alleged by the complainant that
the sidewalk along his lots on North
Ninth street , between Norfolk avenue
and Koenlgsteln avenue , was torn up
by the street commissioner before
proper notice had been given to Hight
that the walk was condemned. Ho
therefore swore out n complaint
against Rlchey on the charge of wil
fully destroying property.
The defendant claims that he acted ,
under instructions of Mayor Friday In
tearing up the walk ; that the walk
had been condemned and was danger
ous ; and that it was condemned three
years ago by the city council.
The walk was torn up soon after
two persons in Norfolk had fallen on
defective walks and been so badly In
jured that two good sized damage suits
were brought against the city.
It is alleged by the defendant that
the walk was dangerous , that side
walks belong to the city , and that ho
had given personal notice to the lot
owner to remove the walk.
The plaintiff claims that the walk
Is personal property and that the law
requires he shall be given thirty days'
ofllcial notice after the walk is con
demned , before the walk can be re
moved by the city.
The jury in the case is as follows :
E. B. Kauffmann , August Brummund
and Dr. C. F. W. Marquardt. City At
torney Weatherby appeared for the
defendant and. County Attorney Koen-
Igstein for the plaintiff.
Mr. Hight says the walk was in fair
condition , had recently been repaired
and that he wanted to wait until he
built a house before making a new
walk. He believes the walk was torn
up through spite work and swore that
he never had received any notice that
the walk had ever been condemned.
Mayor Friday swore the walk had
been dangerous and said the mayor
had a right , when a walk was danger
ous , to order it out.
The case was won by Richey.
