BANK WINS THE FIRST POINT
Modern Woodmsn Lese on tha First Test o
Strength.
ALLEGED CERTIFICATE IS KNOCKED OUT
Document OfTrrrd In Uvlilcnco Ilcl
by the .liiitKc to He No
Vnlltl Certificate at , ,
The so-called certificate ot deposit upo
which the Modern Woodmen of America I
mi lag the Union Notional bank In the tot
oral court for $27,209.33 la no legal ccrtlfl
cato of deposit , and therefore Is no ovldenc
ot Indebtedness from the bank. So Judg
Mtinger decided yesterday morning.
This question arose In the case shortl
after the work of empaneling the Jury wa
completed. D. C. Zlnk , the former hca
clerk who had deposited the money for vvhlc
suit Is brought , was called on the slam
and through htm an attempt was made t
Introduce- the so-culled certificate In cv
dcnce , The defense- once objected and tb
argument on this objection occupied the re
malndcr ot the afternoon , the jury be In
excused In the meantime. Yesterday morn
ing Judge uMungcr decided In favor ot the dc
fonRe.
The Instrument which has been called
certificate Is signed by C. E. Tord , wh
was at the time cashier ot the Union Na
tlonal bank. It Is dated January G , 1893. I
It Ford certifies that at/ the close of bus !
ness on December 30 , 1895 , there was o
deposit to the credit of the order J27.269 33
It Is a certified statement by Ford and Is no
In the form of a certificate ot deposit.
The defendant bank contends that the Instrument
strumont Is not a certificate of deposit an
Is moreover no evidence of Indebtedness
They say that It Is only n statement by th
cashier that on December 30 , 1893 , there wa
on deposit In the bank so much money , whlc
statement was furnished Zlnk that ho mlgh
report on the financial condition ot the ordc
at the end ot the year. Helng dated Januar
6 , 1890 , they say that some of this mono
might have already been drawn out by tha
date and maintain that as a matter of fac
after December 30 , 1895 , all thb money wa
drawn out by check. In a word , the Instru
ment , considered as a statement , shows th
amount of deposit to the credit of the ordc
on a certain date which might afterward hav
been drawn out ; as a certificate of deposit , I
would have shown as long as It remained un
cancelled that that much money remained o
deposit to the credit of the order.
Tno attorneys of the orJcr uidcrtook t
show that even though It was not In the torn
of a certificate , It was In effect and understood
to bo a certificate. Tor this purpose D. C
Zlnk was recalled to the stand. Dut llttl
progress was made , almost all the mornln
being ppcnt In legal sparring.
In this connection there was Introduced k
evidence a letter written by C. D. Tort
cashier of the Union National bunk , to O P
Smith , cashier of the Bank of Commerce o
Grand Island. The money for which the or
dcr Is suing was originally deposited In td
latter bank , and was transferred by It to th
Union National bank to the credit of th
Modern Woodman. In this letter Ford wrot
that the amount had been credited to th
Grand Island Lank and ho requested Smlt
to learu from Zlnk In what form he wlshet
the certificate * of Kio deposit of the amoun
to be made out. The attorneys for the orde
expect to show that there was an understanl
Ing between Zlnk , Smith and Ford that th
statement was to bo virtually a certificate o
depcslt
At this stage In the trial a recess wa
taken until 2 o'clock.
WILL IAMDND THCIR PLDADINGS.
At the afternoon session of the court th
bank scored another point In the legal bal
tic. D. C. Zlnk was recalled to the stani
but the attorneys for the order failed t
prove through hlmi that the money which
Is sought to recover had been put Into t'i
possession of the bank and that It bad no
been checked out. Judge Munger Intimatei
that this must bo proved bolero recover
could be made.
The attorne > s for the ocder were surprised
They said tfaey had gone en the theory tha
by the Introduction In evidence of the GO
called certificate- deposit they would b
able to show that the money did come Int
the possession of the bank and that the bur
den of proof would rest upon the bank t
show that It had been checked out. After
conference they decided to amend their plead
Ings and were given until this morning t
do so.
In the original comnlalnt the order allege
that the bank received the money. The ban !
In Its answer asserted that It had never se
cured a cent of It , but tbat the statemen
signed by Ford had been given as a matte
of accommodation to the Iiank of Commerc
and Zlnk In order that the latter ml&ft
straighten out his report of the financla
condition of the order.
IQ the amendment to their reply vvlilcl
they have been allowed to make , the attor
neys for the order will set out that the bin ]
Is estopped from making such a defense
They will Insist that the statement slgnec
by I'crd was given for tbo purpose of sho.v
Ing that the money named In It was really
on deposit to the credit of the order and tha
the directors of the order so understood I
at the time the case was started. This belnf ,
so , It will be urged that the bank canno
now deny as a fact what It through Us agen
set up as a fact In the statement or cer
tificate.

During the session President Blngham took
occasion to severely reprlmccid City Clot *
Hlgby for wasting the tlmo of the council

The annual report showed a successful } car
and a saving In cost of Insurance of 20 per
cent to the policy holders , notwithstanding
the expense of establishing new agents in the
principal towns in the state. With a good
surplus on hand , and a growing business , the
piospects for the company are very bright.
The business men of Omaha have patronized
the company liberal ! } , showing thai they ap
preciate homo Institutions and lower rates
of Insurance , and that It would pay to pat
ronize a home company in order to keep the
money In the west , even If there was no
saving in rates.
