County Attorney Shields has liutltuted
criminal uctiun ngalnst ollkcro of tbe drain
Growers' Mutual Hall association. The de
fendants) against whom information was
tiled in police; court at 3 o'clock Thursday
nfUTiioon aro: C. M. Harris, president; ,
I' W. Miller, ex-president; ('. C. White,
treasurer, and F. II. llllllker, secretary.';
Th.flo were olIlceiH prior to tho appointment
o.' a receiver a few days ago.
Larceny and embezzlement nre tho specific
nl eg.it Ions preferred by the county attorney.
Ho ha for several weeks been working to
sreuru evidence upon which to baae crimi
nal i nmplalnts.
Them will probably be somo dlfllculty In
loiutliiK the defendants. Harris Is the only
n who has recently been In Omaha, and
it la said that he left the city several days '
ngo. An olfort was mude to servo papers
tiion him Wednesday In connection with the
application llled In district court for the JIo-
chaige of tho receiver, and It was stated at j
In boarding house that ho. was not In the ,
i ii v. It Is believed by the authorities that j
the entire official directory of the hall as
him latum Is in Minneotn, but at whut place
1j not known.
Miller has not been president of the ron
c.n for several months. He resigned and
was succoedod by HarrlH, who had prior to
Miller's resignation been vlco presldcut.
InveMtlf ittlon HculllM.
Tho Investigation by tho county attorney
began soon aftor a receiver waH appointed,
for i hero was then ample opportunity for
Investigation of tho books of tho company.
The Information Is drawn up at great length
find in addition to tho llrst, In which the
larceny and embezzlement of $l,00 Is
charged against Harris, llllllker and White,
tu'piiraic information is also tiled against tho
ollh-ert as Individuals and their alleged pec
ulations aro I luted In sums ranging all the
way from $700 to $2,500. The double charge
of larceny and embezzlement Is carried all
ilm ay through. Tho grand total of nil
the alleged pilfering aggregates somewher"
near 10.000, In which It Is alleged that all
wore about equally concerned.
The (train (Jrowcrs' Mutual Hall nssocl t
tlon has had h tempestuous existence from
the time of Its organization. It purported
to he a co-operative concern whereby crops
would bo Insured. Many of the most rcspon
Hible farmers la tho state became Interested.
Tho promoters of the scheme aro not
farmers, but they claimed to havo long
been Identified with the agricultural classes,
nml for a time they won tho cotilldence of
Nebraska soil tillers. Hut rucnors of u dis
couraging nature began to II oat about and
investigation convinced somo of tho stock
holders that something was wrong. Tho
promoters ci'.mo to Nebraska from Minne
sota, whero It Is said they operated the
batno scheme, but not so extensively as to
Ket Into tho criminal courts.
KITort In Iteoruiinl.e.
It is generally agreed that tho Insurance
plan la u good ono If properly condii"'. d,
and Minio of tho moro prominent farmers
who bate been Induced to Interest tbem
solvett have undertaken to lift the Institu
tion out of the hnnd.s of u receiver and
conduct It themselves. This, of collide,
means complete, reorganization. Tco appli
cation for tho discharge of the receiver has
Juh been filed and the courts havo not yet
passed upon It. The basis of the applica
tion Is tho allegation that tho appointment
of a receiver was Instigated by the nccuml
oCcora of tho concern and tn tho detriment
of tho Innocent member.
Tl-o Grain Crow em' Mutual Hall associa
tion was conducted in a most energetic mnn
Jier. no matter what clue may be said of It,
for Its business extended to every part of
tho ntnte. Thousands of dollars of pollclcH
were written and losNrn occurred from tlmo
to time, hut tho policy holders found It dlf
llcult to make collection. It Is alleged. Num
erous HUlts by lley holders nro now pend
ing in the district courts, tho Idea being to
force payment of louses. It Is raid that the
Investigation mndo thus far Indicates that
tho greater part of tho money taken was dis
bursed In salaries to the various ofllcers or
appropriated by them outright. At least
that Is tho lino along which tho prosecution
1MII make Its light.

court order declaring tho trust fund of
$5,000,000 created by tho will of tho Into
William H. Vanderbilt' exempt from In

tbe tax bo assessed against the fund.
Under tho will of William II. Vanderbilt
a trust fund of $5,000,000 was created for
the benefit of his grandchildren, tho chil

Cornelius Vundorbllt held tho fund In trust
wljh discretionary power to distribute It
nmong his children. Tho counsel for (in
Vnndorbllt heirs contended that tho grand
children of William H. Vanderbilt hnd a

that William H. Vanderbllt's will -vas pro

bilt was admitted to probato before tho In
