LINCOLN, Neb.. July . (Special Tole
Xrara.) Doubtlesx W. J. Bryan is disposed
I i'J institute an investigation of the Weather
Vureau for the shabby treatment It ha
accorded him In his effort to welcome his
friends at his splendid new home. Fair view.
First he selected two evenings In May for
the reception. Inviting about 0()O friends to
attend on the two evenings. Bad weather
prompted a postponement and later It was
announced that the functions would be
held June I and (. As those dates ap
proached it again became evident that the
' weather wis going to be Intolerable and
the receptions were declared off Indefinitely.
Duing the current wvek it was an
nounced that in view of ttve presence of
Hon. Tom L. Johnson of Clevekind, Lewis
V. Post and Dr. Howard 8. Taylor of Chi
cago at Falrview to take part In the cele
bration of the Fourth, the reception would
be crowded Into a single evening and all
who had been invited for the doublo
headod affairs previously planned were
bidden to come enmasse tonight.
The weather was Ideal up to the hour for
the guests to assemble, when there was a
terrltlo thunderstorm, accompanied by a
deluge. The result was that not mora than
half the number of Invited attended the re
ception. Most of those who did went by
the electric cars. This entailed a walk of
several blocks across the prairie to the
Uryn home, a sidewalk having been laid
expeclally for the occasion. En route the
guests passed the grove and big tent In
which tomorrow's speaking la to occur,
and the latter served as a retreat for
numerous parties that left the cars In
the midst of the rain.
The big new mansion was embellished
with flags and an abundance of flowers
and potted plants. An orchestra on the
, third floor played during the evening. In
the library punch was served by a corps
fc of women, and In the elaborate dining
3in on the half-basement floor ices and
cuke was served by a- half a dozen young
women, led by Miss Ruth Bryan.
In the receiving line were Mr. and Mrs.
Bryan, Mr. Johnson, Dr. Taylor and Mr.
l'ost. There was an absence of formality.
Many evening costumes were worn by both
women and men, but they were not an es
sential. The entire house waa thrown open
to Inspection and elicited much extrava
gant admiration. The reception continued
from 8:30 until 10 o'clock. The souvenirs
were tiny silken flag badges.

Elks eek Jfeir Home.
The local lodge of Elks Is having a busi
ness session tonight for the purpose of
considering a proposition to buy the old
J. D. Macfarland home at Fourteenth and
Q streets as a permanent club house. The
house Is one of the finest in the city, cost
ing about ICS, 000 In the old boom days. Its
owner Is dead and the place has gone Into
the hands of the Northwestern Insurance
company. The Commercial club had a deal
on soma time ago for buying the place, but
gave It up because a more central loca

offered It for 130,000, and If the matter can

Teaser Makes a Mistake.
W. H. Tonner of Lynch has played a
Joke upon himself by refusing to accept an
appointment for a one-year term as secre
tary of the State Board of Pharmacy be
cause he had been strongly recommended
for the long term. The appointment was
made early this week and he has Just
written the secretary of state that he
could not think of accepting the short
term because he had been tecommended by
the Board of Secretaries for the long term.
Now It transpires that his appointment to
the short term was made with the express
understanding among members of the State
Board of Pharmacy that when tha short
term should expire he would be appointed
for the full term, which la said to be Ave
years. His declination brings to the front
again the names of Messrs. Kuhn of
Omaha, Dort of Auburn and Schupbach of
Columbus, who were recommended by the
secretaries for the short term.
The Plattamouth Savings bank haa filed

Mtlee Will Oaae Again.
In the case of Joseph Williams against
Joseph Miles, tha celebrated Miles, will
case, a motion to modify the former opin
ion haa been denied, holding that:
1. Declarations of the testator are compe
tent evidence on an Issue as to whether a
will was made, but will not suffice, ot
themselves, to prove Its contents.
2. Where opinions are prepared by com
missioners they must be permitted, nec
essarily, to state their reasons in their
own way, without binding the court to all
that Is said arguendo, even though It con
curs In- the conclusions of law and ex
press findings or ract.
3. Opinions expressed by the commission
ers on matters not essential to the decision.
while properly set lortn to advise counsel
that their arguments In briefs or at the
healing have been Iduly considered, do not
become necessarily the law of the case and
It will not preclude further Investigation
of such points, should they come before
the court once more.
Pretest Waa In Time.
The. court holds that the district court
of Douglas county committed no error In
granting a writ of mandamus agulnst the
Omaha Fire and Police board requiring
that board to convene and hear protests
against the Issuance of a saloon license to
Charles Metx. John D. McRae had filed a
remonstrance by mall, which the board
held was received too late for considera
tion. The court says:
A protest addressed to a board empower I
to arrant saloon licenses was sent by mall.
and reoelved prior to any action granting
the license protested agulnst. The board
took cognisance of the same and ordered It
preserved in the flies of the office. Held,
that the protest was "tiled'' In the proper
iiHIm within the meaning of the law. and
that It became the duty of the board to
"appoint a day for the hearing of the case '
under the requirements of section $, chap
ter I, of tne complied statutes.
Rehearing; la Refaaed.
The court haa overruled a motion for a
rehearing in the case ot J. C. Cleland and
other members of the Nebraska Lumber
Dealers' association against George U. An
derson. The former Judgment ia adhered
to. Commissioner Pound, who wrote the
former opinion, has written one on the mo
tion for a rehearing. Anderson was a lum
berman who alleged that the state associa
tion had damaged his business by certain
methods. He had a cause of action for In
Jury to hla business against some seven
Joint tort-feasors. He brought an action
against three of them. Pending the action
he became bankrupt and listed his Interest
therein among his aaseta In consequence
it waa sold, along with other property, and
the purchaser made a settlement with the
defendants. Afterward he brought the
present action against the other four tort
feasors, who set up the settlement In satis
faction In bar. The question is whether the
interest of the bankrupt In the pending ac
tion passed to the trustee and thence to
the purchaser, no as to enable the latter to
make a settlement The court says:
Where the state atautea make a distinc
tion between a plaintiff's interests in a
nendlng sctlon and his cause of action be
fore suit brought, making tho on assign
able In cases where the other ia not. the In
terest of a bankrupt in a pending action

The supreme court late this afternoon
handed down an opinion sustaining the j
finding and sentence of the police court
In Imposing $1 fines snd costs upon Sid
Anderson and HI Johnson, striking wait
ers, for distributing unfair cards, printed
circulars or handbills upon the streets,
and the action of the district court In de
nying them a writ of habeas corpus. It
"When a municipality Is expressly au
thorised by legislation to enact a certain
ordinance In execution of the police power,
such ordinance stands on the same basis
as a statute, and Its reasonableness or
unreasonableness Is not a matter for the
courts, except as such question would
bear upon the constitutionality of a statute
of the same nature.
A police regulation, obviously Intended
an such, and not operating unreasonably
beyond the occasions of its enactment. Is
not Invalid because It may affect Inciden

by the constitution.
An ordinance making It unlawful to circu

contravene section S, article 1 of the state
The opinion Is by Commissioner Pound.
Woodmen Verdict Stands.
In an opinion by Judge Holcomb the
court denies the Modern Woodmen of
America a rehearing of the case against
It by Asa Coleman, from Cass county.
It had been claimed because Commissioner
Ames, In the original opinion, had Indulged
In some very pointed language. Among
other things he said: "A charitable organ
ization which collects Its funds with avid
ity, but Is astute In finding excuses tor
not bestowing them upon the designated
objects of Its bounty is not entitled to
any exclusive or special consideration at
the hatyla of the court. The enormous
volume of litigation with which associa
tions of this kind have flooded the country.
and the extremely technical character of
their defenses In many cases, to actions
upon their beneficiary, certificates are a
sufficient commentary upon an appeal for
tender consideration by the Judiciary."
Judge Holcomb says tn effect that these
remarks were called forth by arguments
tn the brief and merely express the Indi
vidual opinions of the writer, who Is en
titled to express his opinions In his own
way. They were not material to the Issue,
In which the commission had given a cor
rect exposition of the lay. The parts com
plained of were not binding on the court.
nor does It wish td be understood as en
dorsing them, but they are sanctioned by
the court as an animadversion.
The court has reversed and remanded the
case wherein Qeorge P. Hoy was convicted
of assault and battery in Cuming county
because of a row over a fence across t.je
Blair road." It was because the court
denied one Instruction tending to
strengthen his plea of self-defense.
Appeals Amendment Came.
Deputy Attorney General Brown filed to
day a petition In error In the supreme
court against the recent ruling of District
Judge Holmes restraining the secretary of
state from drawing warrants In payment
of legislation at a rate more than $3 a day
or for a period longer than forty days. The
errors assigned are so formal aa to be
noteworthy. They are aa follows: .
Bald Judgment is not supported by the
evidence: said Judgment is contrary to the
evidence; said Judgment is not supported
by the laW; said Judgment Is contrary to
the law; said .court er-ed in allowing a
permanent Injunction against plaintiff in
error; the court erred in overruling the
motion ror a new trial.

HASTINGS. Neb.. July .-(Speclal.)-An
interesting trial which will be held at the
next term of the district court here will
be that of Charles Frymyre. now confined
In tha county Jail of Adams county,
chaVged with the murder of Tracy Odlen
burg Puis at Eustls, Frontier county,
February 21, last.
Frymyre'a parents live at Holdroge, but
the young man was reared by an uncle
who lives at Stockvllle. As he appears ia
his cell, he Is five feet eight Inches high,
compactly built, clean shaven, fairly well
educated, and discloses a neatness in
Story of Jealousy.
The alleged story of the crime shows love
and Jealousy as the cause. For a year
Frymyre had been keeping company with
Miss Oldenburg, and their relation had
beuru very intimate, during the year
however. Richard Puis, a neighbor,
bachelor and ranchman appeared on th
scene, sued for tha hand of the girl, and
their marriage was the sequel.
Three days after the nuptials Frymyre
armed himself, mounted his horse and" rode
up to the ranch house of Puis, discharg
ing his pistol into the air as he rode. Mrs.
Puis was the first to hear and see him. and
she cried to her husband "Here comes
Frymyre, shooting!" Almost simultane
ously Frymyre entered the house and a
desperate hand-to-hand flgnt ensued be
tween the two men, and In the fray a
revolver was discharged.
Fry my r them ordered tne woman to go
out and Into his buggy at the same time
charging her husband torf remain in the
house. ' His orders were obeyed and he got
Into the vehicle, beside the woman, and
started for his ranch on Cannon Bank. The
had proceeded but a short distance when
he became aware that his companion was
Woiaaa Was His Wlf.
This fact, he says, surprised and shocked
him "In fact," he continued, "Tracy and
I were married fourteen months before
this affair happened. She was teaching
school last winter In a German community,
and her folks did not like me. They tried
to separate us, not knowing our relation.
She waa In a delicate condition at th time
and when this was known to them they
forced her to marry Puis ugainst her will.
As soon as I heard this, I went where she
was, to take her home, to save her honor.
But during the trouble which. followed she
was accidentally shot and nobody realised
it for several minutes after. God knows
I would not have harmed her intentionally.
When I found she was hurt I took her to
the nearest house and sent for a doctor,
and I stayed beside her until I waa arrested
that night. From that hour to this my
position has been misunderstood."
Frymyre was greatly agitated and wept
while narrating the circumstances.

ATTEMPTED KIDNAPING FAILS
Yossg Man Comes to Rescue of Miss
Kackley and Assailants
ASHLAND, Neb., July S. (Special.)
News has been received here of the at
tempt made to kidnap Miss Linnle Kackley,
a former resident of Ashland, whose
parents now reside at Lena, McPherson
county. Neb. The attempt to abduct Miss
Kackley waa made in the evening. She
was a student of the Nebraskan Wesleyan
university and as she stepped out of the
back door of her boarding place, which was
located three blocks from the university,
two men gTabbed her, throwing a handker
chief over her face. The handkerchief was
saturated with some kind of drug, tho ef
fect of which was to make Miss Kackley
unconscious. The villains were thwarted
from carrying out their purpose by the
presence of mind of a young man, also an
Inmate of the boarding house, who was at
tracted by the girl's screams. Other in
mates who heard the screams thought it
was only a matter of play among the
young people, but this young man very
luckily took It seriously and jumped through
an open window, frightening the kidnapers
away betore they succeeded In bearing
their victim to a closed carriage nearby,
which stood In waiting to receive her. In
the meantime the kidnapers made their
escape In the darkness with the carriage.
Miss Kackley was badly frightened and
could not give a description of her assail
ants, but she remembered that one of the
men wore a mask. Local friends of Miss
Kackley believe that the present attempt
to kidnap her furnishes the sequence of a
ihreat made In February. 1901, while the
family resided In Ashland. At that tlm
a letter was posted near their door de
manding that tl.000 In gold be placed neat
a whistle post on the Schuyler branch ol
the B. & M. railroad, failure to do so to
result In the kidnaping of the daughter for
a ransom. It waa then thought to be th
work of parties from Ogalalla. Neb., which
was at one time the home of Miss Kackley
and her parents.
