HOLDS THAT THE SCHEME IS A LOTTERY Toha McCormick, CoBTlptd of Martrr la Otoe Coantr, Secarea a Sew Trial oa Arroaat of Teclialcalltr. fTrom Stuff Correspondent.) blXCOLN, Not. 19. (Special.) In an txtended opinion written by Justice 8edi wlek the tupreroe court today put the. Ne braska Home company out of business In tbla (tat by declaring tbat It Is a lottery and tbat Ita promoters promise Impsslblq things. The court finds that the number ing of certificates In the order In which applications therefor are received gives to the enterprise the element of chance, which makea It a lottery. It also finds tbat while the first twenty-two applicants out of 1,000 may receive the benefits prom ised by the company Inside of the second twenty-month period after the filing of the applications the 1.000 ' applicant has little to hope for in the way of benefit in this world, an It will take tint seventy years to realise, and that tho company does not profess to do anything for b:m In the Beit world. The suit Is in the nature of a quo war ranto proceeding and was Instituted by At torney General Prout on behalf of the atate to prevent the company from doing business In Nebraska. The syllabus or the court la aa follows: , 1. To Constitute Intterv It l nmr that a prise be offered and something of iuh m given lor a cnance to oDtain tne prise. 2. The prise mav be anvthlna- of value: a preference or .privilege In the dlstrlbu- ui a t-ummon iuna among inos en titled thereto may constitute a prise. 3. A Scheme mrherehv m nnmmnn fnnri Is to be produced by the contributions of various parties and afterwards distributed among the parties contributing thereto, and a valuable preference or privilege In the distribution thereof la made to depend upon chance, la a lottery within the mean ing or our statutes prohibiting lotteries. 4. Contracts In which a comoration. In consideration of stated payments made to It, makes promisee, which are the main Inducement to such contract, and are Im pneslhle to perform, are unlawful, being against public policy. 6. A corporation organised under the laws of this state which Is engaged In a Dumness lormauen ny statutes, or unlawful an against nubile Dollcv. mav be deprived of Its charter and dissolved by proceedings n quo warranto. The court states the case as follows: First. Bald company shall number and date all contracts issued In regular numer- im oraer an applications are received at the home office and ahall keep a record thereof ahowing the date and the serial numoer oi eacn contract. t'taaaee ta Wla or Itse.

It issuea contracts which, through the misfortune of the holders and the number of the application, will bring no assist ance before the expiration of the ordinary allotment of three ecore yeara and ten. It cannot result In aeaistance to auch holders In procuring a home in thla world and It doea not render assistance In any other. This company la a branch of a Kansas City establishment organized In Omaha. For a long time It la reported to have done a thriving business In the metropolis. It first sought the permission to transact its business under the law authorising building and loan associations, a privilege which waa denied it. Thereupon It died articles et Incorporation and started out In that way. It waa then that the attorney gen eral Interposed his objection. Blnce then the Nebraska parties connected with It have severed- their connection, aud the company waa ostensibly bought by the ' Kansas City company or the parties who compose It, and its business Is now being carried oa by them. Baya Maaaar baaetts Do ads. Under a ruling of the supreme court the state treasurer Is required to com plete the contract made some days since by the Board of Educational Lands and Funus whereby fSOO.OvO of- school funds are to be Inyeated In SV4 per rent gold bonds of the state of Massachusetts. The appli cation of the attorney general for a writ of mandamus against the treasurer la the test case was allowed. Caavlct Cieta ftew Trial. Becauae the Judge of the district court of Otoe county. In sentencing John Mc cormick 'to serve twenty yeara In prison for the murder of the keeper of a hotel while In a fit of Jealousy at the attentions she waa receiving from another favorite, did not acquaint him with the nature ot the verdict of the Jury . and ask him whether or not he had anything to say why sentence of the court should not be pronounced upon htm, the condemned anas la decreed a new trial by the aupreme court In an opinion rendered today. Tho court holds that the statute oa that point la mandatory, and that If the custom la to become obsolete aa a mere formality. It Is for the legislature and not the courts to wipe It out. . Declared I'aceaetltatlaaal. The aupreme court has conferred upon County Clerk Alvln Blessing of Valley county the privilege cf continuing to dis charge the duties and enjoy the emolu ments of clerk ot the district court In that county. There la a statute which provides that la count lea of less than 1.000 popula tion the duties of clerk of the district court shall be performed by the county clerk. I' poo the assumption tbat the county had paased the limit In population there was an election held In that county for clerk of the district court, at which Horace M. Davis claimed to have been elected and soutfit to administer the office. Thereupon Blessing brought an action la the mature of quo warranto to oust him. and haa won bis suit. A referaa aonolataal tka wri reported adverse to the respondent Davla. The whole question hinges on whether Val ley county bad 1.000 population November 1.9!. when Davis was elected clerk of the district court. Taking the census re ports and the vote cast for president In 1900. the court holds that the population fell short of g.ono at the time of the elec tion. The evidence is found to sustain the report of the referee. At the same time the court holds unconstitutional the act of 1901, providing for clerks of district courts In counties having more than 8,000 popula tion, because It failed recently to receive on Its final parsage In the house a consti tutional majority of the members of that body. Lemuel T. Goldsberry, Guy Goldsberry and Melvln Goldsberry, residents of Au burn, Nemaha county, were convicted of having received four horses and one muli atolen In Missouri from various parties, knowing thm to have been atolen. It appears that an accomplished horse thief named White furnished the testimony upon which they ere convicted. The first named was sentenced to ten years, Guy to four and Melvln to two years In the penitentiary. Thla Judgment is reversed and the case Is remanded for a new trial for error committed by the court In taking away from the jury the question of fraudu lent Intent and authorising It to find the defendants guilty without finding tbat the Intent charged was proved by the evidence beyond a reaaonable doubt. "Although," said the court, "there Is much reaaon to suppose the result of the trlsl would have been the aame If the case had been sub mitted under proper instruction." Will Coateat Begaa. Before udge Frost In district court to day waa begun the hearing of a will contest In which the Catholic church la an Inter ested party. When Mrs. Mary A. Bentley, a devout Catholic, died a year and a half ago, aha cut oft her adopted son, Constable W. A. Bentley. with but $25. while tho remainder of her $7,000 estate went to Bishop Bonacum and the German Catholic church of this city. The son contests on the ground that various priests and 'offi cials of the church Influenced his mother against him and In favor of the church. Insaraace Company Wins. Judge Cornish In district court today ordered the Jury to find a verdict for de fendant In the case of Kate King against the Knights Templar and Masons' Indem nity association. The case turned on a point of law. A provision In the policy was that If a member did not pay the agent on the first of the month he waa sus pended and could not be reinstated until his money reached the home office at Chicago. If he waa alive when It got there he was again In good standing. In thla case the friends of the -dying man ralaed the money to pay his assessment while he was In extremity, but the money did not get to Chicago until after he had died. The company refused to pay. An effort waa made to prove waiver by the fact that the local agent bad previously accepted money after the first, but tho court held the facta did not establish agency. Lost Hie Prisoner. . A rery disgusted lot of penitentiary offi cials and local policemen gTeeted Sheriff Klum of Hamilton county when he got off the train this morning with hla pris oner, Fred L. Denny, for whom he had gone to Minneapolis, mlaslng. He said Denny eluded him at Albla. Ia. The peni tentiary officials aay that on the other side of Albla the man, who waa manacled to the sheriff, got permission to remove them while he went to the closet. The sheriff sat In a seat waiting for him to return. It was late at night and he fell asleep. When he woke up he waa past Albla, and Denny waa gone. .Then he came right on to tell Detective Malone about It. Malone had located Denny and the prison officials wanted him becauae he waa a missing witness In the opium smuggling case that had to be dropped because of Denny'a skipping out. . Barltnartoa Bwltchasea Get Increase. Burlington switchmen received notice to day that they will at once receive an In crease of pay, the aame as Is now being paid at Chicago. Last September they got a boost In salary, and the new Increase waa a nleasant aurorlse. although It had been asked for. Figuring on a ten-hour basis of twenty-alx days to the month, the following rate la In effect: tay foremen, former acale $70, now $80.60; day helpera, from $86 to $74.80; night foremen, from $75 to $85.80; night helpers, from $70 to $78.

Davis A Co.'s agent, Mr. Cole man, with about fifteen local grain buyers from this and the surrounding towns, held an all-night session last night to endeavor to settle the Superior corn war. Four companies, doing business here, have become engaged In a fight for the grain and have pushed the price tip so that It Is now higher than In either Kan sas City or Omaha. In some Instances they have paid 10 cents a bushel more than the market justifies. Outside towns have been forced to raise their prices to get any of the grain.

TWO OUT OF THREE SHOTS ARE EFFECTIVE Fortunately Woanae Are Not Serloaa and Infuriated Man Is Disarmed While Following; tp Ilia Victim. KEARNEY, Neb., Nov. 19. (Speclat Tele gram.) Kearney was enllvenen with a shooting affair about S o'clock this after noon that came near being serious. At tho hour named Captain D. A. Dorsey met his son, Edward S. Dorsey. one ot the city mail carriers, on the street and began talking to him about matters concerning the family. The son tried to evade the conversation, saying that there was no use of talking about their private matters on the street. At this point Captain Dor sey drew a revolver and began shooting, firing three shots, one of which passed through Edward's hat another through the fleshy part of the arm above the elbow and another one going wide. Edward got out of the way as fast as he could and dodged Into Blakely's store be tween Twenty-third and Twenty-fourth streets. The father followed, but before the shooting could be resumed Constable Nichols and George Ray took the Infuriated man In tow and he was placed In custody. As Is known to many, there has been aa estrangement between Captain Dorsey and his wife and children for several years. This trouble, preying on the father's mind, led to the assault, no doubt, during a period of mental derangement, MISTAKES MADE BY MAXWELL gome of the Points Overlooked by the Great Irrigation Agitator. LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 19. To the Editor of The Bee: Omaha seems to have been chosen by Mr. George H. Maxwell, otherwise the National Irrigation associa tion, as a center from which he will hurl hie thunderbolts. An address delivered by him there not long ago has been placed In the hands of western editors and has to some extent been quoted. This address at tacks the system of state control and ad ministration of public waters which ia In force In our own. and some neighbor ing states. In making this attack, he abso lutely Ignores the facts which serve to in trench those laws In the favor of those who have acquired or who expect to ac quire water rights under them. He under takes to prejudice the mlnda of those who may not be fully Informed, using to this end such terms as "a corps of state ditch tenders appointed by state officials." He states that the system in force "puts the control of the distribution ot the waters of a state In the hands of a great political Irrigation machine, controlled by the atate politicians," and presumably expects no one to recognize the fact that a similar statement might be framed In regard to any of our affairs the administration of which la Intrusted to stale er national au thority. He takea up "home rule In Irrigation" as a "slogan," and with the aame abandon which he assumes when he assured the delegate to the Irrigation congress at Colorado Springs that when the govern ment built Ita reservoirs and Irrigation works, there would be 'plenty f water for everybody," he now brushet aside all difficulties In the way of a system of water administration which would permit "every drainage basin, every irrigated community, every canal system, and the whole body of Irrigators on any stream to "control Its or their affairs" Independent of any cen tral state authority. On this point, doea It seems that the lecal control ot the North Platte and Platte rivers would be simpler than the present state control? Mr. Max well must Imagine that nothing would be eaaler than for the people of Scotts Bluff county and those living several hun dred miles nearer to the mouth of the river to get together in the town meeting and fix up their affairs. He speaka ot the "complicated code of atate laws," In the face of the fact that the mere completely the element ot state control of streams has been embod ied In the constitution and statutes of the Irrigation states, the more simple and In expensive Is the process of adjudication of priorities of right to the use ot water and the more definite and secure are those rights. Mr. Maxwell says that the codes of state water laws "would complicate and retard beyond calculation the operations under the national irrigation act," and, further, he limits what the atatea should do In this matter to the establishment of "a few fun damental principles by constitutional amendment and Judicial decision." President Roosevelt eays that a majority of tltlea to water In the weat already "rest on the uncertain foundation of court de risions rendered In ordinary suits at law. With a few creditable exceptions the arid states have failed to provide for the cer tain and Just division of streams In time of scarcity." Note the radical departure of Mr. Max well from the opinion entertained by the president In regard to the desirability ot Judicial decisions as a foundation for water rights. Moreover, who can doubt tbat Ne braska and Wyoming were foremost in the mind ot the president when he noted that there were creditable exceptions to tho general rule that states had failed to pro ride efficient laws for the distribution of water. In Mr. Maxwell's own ststs of California kls program has been Ignored. There a representative commission, composed of three leading members oi the California bar and some of the foremost economists and engineers ot the state, headed by a chief Justice of the supreme court, "has framed a bill for putting Into effect a law in that state which follows precisely the lines which Mr. Maxwell condemns. There are now Indications that a cam paign haa been Inaugurated which will cen ter around the legislatures of those states which have not as yet reached firm ground In respect to Irrigation legislation. This campaign will be one of agitation and mis representation, having Its origin In private selfishness and personal spite, and will be directed to the end of preventing that dis passionate and unprejudiced study of what has been accomplished and the lessons which have been learned In other states and other countries, and which should precede any wise move tn the formulation of Irri gation laws. The campaign will have the support of every lawyer of that class which has everything to gain and nothing to lose by the creation of conditions of chaos and anarchy In those states. O. V. P. STOUT. FROM BEATRICE TO LINCOLN Syndicate Proposes to Build nn Elec tric I.lne to Connect Two v Nebraska Cities. BEATRICE, Neb., Nov. 19. (Special.) E. C Hurd of Akron, O., and H. Wilson of Lincoln met with tho directors of the Commercial club here last nlgbt to con sider the building of an electric line from Lincoln to Beatrice.

Ptock Shipments Delayed. M'COOL JUNCTION, Neb.. Nov. 19. (Special.) Since the change ot the Kansas City ft Omaha railroad to the Burlington stockmen who are obliged to ship over the Burlington are complaining of the poor shipping arrangements to Omaha. The' Burlington raised the rates to St. Joseph, making It necessary to ship elsewhere, and the arrangement now Is for shippers to ship to Sutton and there wait for a freight on the main line to take them to Omaha.

President Savannah Woman's Improvement Club. No. 604 Thirty-ninth Street, West. Savahnaix, Oa., May 14, 1902. THERE are but few families that have not from time to time seri ous illness in the home. At auch times the first question is what is the safest and quickest way to regain the health of the sufferer. In try home and ainonff women relatives and friends we nave come to the conclu sion that doctors are an expensive luxury. Tbeir prescriptions may sometimes relieve, but tor real, per manent cure 1 know of nothing which I can so surely depend upon as Wine of Cardui. It must be a skillfully prepared medicine for it seems to answer the purpose ia numerous complaints peculiar to women. I learned of its value per . sonally three years ago when two bottles cured mo of periodical pains, and I was so pleased with the results that I recommended it to a number of friends. I have known of severe cases of inflammation and ulceration which were cored in a few Mrs. Whittaker it a highly intellectual woman, and as president of a prominent Savannah woman s organization her words are worth con sideration. She has made up her mind that doctors are an expensive and often unnecessary luxury, and that Wine of Cardui is a medicing that can be depended on. Besides being surer and more lasting as a remedy the trifling cost of Wine of Cardui ccunuends this great remedy to every suffering woman. If every woman in the land today wouldstudy existing conditions as Mrs. Whittaker has studied theni she would come to the same conclusion regarding Wine of Cardui. Kvery woman has friends who have paid doctors bills for years with no particular result. Many families have been dragged down to poverty in this way. At the same time over a million women have secured health br taking Wine of Cardui, purchased from druggists at a nominal cost. Wine of Cardui cures menstrual disorders and drives weakness from the female system. Yon can get the same good health as Mrs. Whittaker by securing a $1.00 bottle of Wine of Cardui today.
