M'CULLOUGH Eatopa Eajelnlag; Collection or ) ioalas Validity of Special Aa tcaamaata Cemiag from This Class of Cases. Two cases of Importance to the city of Omaha were decided by Judges Baxter and Day, sitting together In the former's court room, yesterday. Hereafter In all fore closure cases in this city whera special assessments for paving, curbing, sewer and idtrwalks, the opening of streets and boule vards, were deducted from the appraise ment at tho time of tho sale, the owners will not be able, under the ruling an nounced, to enjoin the collection or ques tion tho validity of such special assess ments. Tho two cases which resulted in tho dis cussion of the matter of assessments were John W. McCullough againat the city and the Omaha Loan and Trust company againat tho city. In these cases the plaintiffs became the purchasers at Judicial sales of property, in which sales the sheriff and the appraisers had deducted certain void apeclul assessments from the gross appraised value. The purchasers, how aver, Ignored the deduction, and bid two thirds of the gross appraised value. The court holds that the amount of the bid la Immaterial in any case where such deductions have ben made and that the purchaser Is, under auch circumstances, eatopped from queationlng the validity of special assessments so deducted. In the McCullough case the gross ap praisement was $3,000. The special assess ment and the taxes deducted as encum brance, prior to the mortgage lien fore closed amounted to $1,409. McCullough, under tho law, could have bid and acquired the property at two-thirds of the net ap pralaed value, but In this case the de ductions were Ignored and tho purchaser bid $2,000. ' Makes CoBloatloa Staad. Subsequent to the purchase McCullough began an action against the city ot Omaha to have the special assettamenta Included In said deduction cancelled. The city con. tended, successfully, that McCullough. by reason of the deductions, was at this time precluded from questioning the validity of the assessment. The supreme court. In the raso of Batte'.le against Mcintosh, In 1901 made the same ruling as that lust announced by Judges L axler and Day. The supreme court, how J('ovor, In the ease of Hart against Beardaley, decided In January, 19ut, In which caae a mortgage was deducted aa a prior lien to taa iuorVga. fotwakwrt la Ui. action, was 1.00 Children's Trimmed ORa Hats Children's Trimmed I OR HfaV Ladies' street jy q cloth Automobile ORa ... faUW 2.50 Black Velvet QCn Hats 30C the Big Economy Room Mala HMf 3.50 Black and Colored QE Trimmed Hats 33c 25c 1.98 Corsets A large assortment of straight front din hip corsets, also short and medium in. styles in all sizes and colors, at JjO Girdles, in tape and stripped all sizes una coiurs special price an. only aJJJC We are showing a complete line of tho "La Marguerite Coraeta," made from tho finest materials in silks and batiste, war ranted genuine whalebone filling, styles auapiea to an ngurea, rrom tne very alight to the very stout figure special attention given to fitting.

Tho owner ot the second mortgage after confirmation of salo began to foreclose his mortgage, al leging that the purchaser, by reason of the mortgage having been deducted as a prior lien, was eatopped to question the priority of tho second mortgage. The supreme court, however, took the opposite view. In the decision just rendered tho question waa whether tho supreme court had receded from Its position In the Battelle case, and Judges Baxter and Day hold that tb. su preme court had not. WILL START ANEW LIBRARY Rot. Charles W. Savldge Wants Help to Establish Reading Room of People's Chnreh. Rov. Charles W. Savldge, pastor of the Peojrie's church, has a new project under way the establishment of a library and reallng room in connection with the church. Ho haa received a small sum of money and a number of books aa a nucleus from friends of tho Idea and he Is now trying Industriously to Increase the dona tions. "Tho public library, Young Men'.

NO INVESTIGATION IS COMING Omaha Child Raving Instltnto Not to Bo Probed br Governor Mickey. "The Omaha Child Saving Institute will not be Investigated by Governor Mickey, notwithstanding reports to tho contrary," said an Omaha minister who has Just talked with Governor Mickey on the sub let. A committee from the advisory board of the Institution, consisting of Rev. Hubert C. Herring. Rev. T. J. Mackay and Mr. Halford, of their own vlolitlon waited on the governor Thursday, because they bad under.tood that he had heard complaints against the Institution. This was true, but the governor was convinced of their falsity. The complaints all came from Colorado Springs, where lived the father of a girl who bad been taken by tho Institute and for whom a home had been found In the family of a prominent citfxen of Nebraska City, who later removed to Oklahoma. This father who, was himself, unable to care far the child, wrote numerous let ter, saying that she had been terribly abused. Sum tjma sgo slanager ulv7 ill LQiJS THE RELIABLE! STORK.

"The selection of my name by the peo ple's Independent party was entirely with out my knowledge or consent," says Mr. Kubat. "I will not accept the nomina tion, nor do I want the office. I am a republican and will not accept a nomina tion from any other party." This la the kind of political ethics ' en joined by the new primary rules, but which failed to bear fruit when It came to a question of the heretofore republican Judges, Dickinson and Read, accepting a nomlnatloSi from tho democrat. "It I. to smile at the allusions by th. democratic campuign managers concerning the experience of Otto Bauman, the young man whom they are trying to make county treasurer," said a well known business man yesterday. "I do not question the truth of the statement that Bauman spent seven years In a bank, but what bank was it? The German Savings bank, one of the enterprises that failed. Of course, I don't claim that Bauman had the slightest chance to keep the bank in shape, as I do not suppose he could have done anything In the minor position that he held.

THROUGH CARS TO DUNDEE Serrios to Be Established Within Weeks, Bays Mr. Smith. Twt FARNAM LINE BEING CONNECTED UP Street Railway Company Bnsy with Dodge Street and Other Linos and Will Order New Cars. "Within two week, wo expect to have all the Dundee Una In first-class shape, from Fortieth and Farnam to Fiftieth and Underwood avenue, the end ot the Una, and the Farnam street car service will b extonded Into that territory." This statement was mada yesterday by General Manager William A. Smith of the street railway company. Mr. Smith said further: "Wo are at present repairing th Dodgo street line from Tenth and Farnam to Twenty-fourth and Lake street, and th Commercial avenue line from Sherman ave nue to Ames avenue, beside, the work un der way of repairing tho entire Dundee line. Tho work of th. Dodge and Com mercial lines w do not expect to have completed before some time early In th. spring, because the workmen hav founl It very hard to remove the old cable tracka Tho Dunde line will be completed within two weeks and the Farnam street car service will then be extended with a sched ule of one car every twenty minutes. It is figured at present that every other car will make the through trip. The old cable cars on the Dodge line and the old cars now being used on the Dundee lino will ba taken to aome of th other stub line, for use there. Replacing; All the Time. "No order, have yet been placed for new cars to replace the ones In use on th Dodpre line, but we have got to such a point that we have to keep replacing and scrapping old car. every spring. Next spring we will have new cars for use on the Far nam and Harney lines and it Is probable that the cars In use on theae street, 'now will be placed on Dodge and several of th other line, where the service haa not been so good." Asked If the report was true that th old two-truck cars of tho Omaha and Council Bluffs line were to be used on th South Omaha line, Mr. Smith said: "It Is not the purpose of th company to make it a regular thing to run these large car on the South Omaha line, but at present w are using them night and morning as trip pers on the South Omaha and the Sherman avenue lines. They will not be run regu larly on these lines, tut Just when th. travel Is heaviest. Considerable difficulty is experienced In starting and stopping th large cars and time is lost, so that w do uot believe that it Is a paying Invest ment to ua them on lines where ther. ara short block requiring; many .tops."
