NEW JERSEY DECISION IS REVERSED Court of Appeals at Philadelphia I'asses on Suit Brought to Hf. train Pro Hall Dlatrl ballon of Shares. FIHLADEM'HIA. Jan. 3 -The United States court of nppcUs for the Third Judi cial dlatrlct. In an opinion filed here today, reveilles a decision of the Now Jersey circuit court, which restrained the Northern Securities, company from distributing cer tain stock of the Northern Pacific Railroad company. The decision is a defeat for the Interests represented hy K. H. Harrlman. By a decree of the New Jersey court the Northern Securities company was re strained from disposing of 370,230 shares of the common stock of the Northern Pncliic Railroad company," alleged to have been received1, from E. H. Harrlman and Wlnslow S. Pierce, and of 8i7,0!i0 shares of the common stock of the Northern Pacllic Railway company received by the Northern Securities company from the Northern Pa cific company. Today's decision, however, gives the Northern Securities company the right to dispose of the stock. Harrlman and Pierce, when the Northern Securities company had been declared by the United Slates supreme court to be an Illegal combination, demanded tne rt turn of the original stock they had contributed at the time of the organization of the combination. The Northern Securities com pany, it was claimed. Intended to make a pro rata distribution of the stock of the contributing companies. Transfer Was a Sale. The opinion was written by Judge Dallas. After reviewing the organisation of the combination and its subsequent history, the decision sals: Harrlman averred that the shares of rail way stuck in question were acquired hy the Securities company; that It would hold them as custodian, depositary, trus tee and owners of salt, shares were the parties who originally exchanged the same for stock In the Northern Securities com pany. The Northern Securities company claimed that it ucUired the stock by pur chase and that it owns the stock outright. After quoting the resolution underwhich the stock was acquired the opinion says the resolution contemplated a purchase and nut a trust nnd that the resolution was adopted at a meting ut which llurri mun was present. The opinion continues: The Northern Securities company Is tho owner of 1,537,5H4 chares of the stock of the Northern l'aclllc Hallway company, which has been restrained from voting or receiving dividends and in view of this re straint all parties agree that it should not continue. The Northern Securities com pany accordingly proposes to assign theiu pro rata to Its shareholders Including noi less than 2,5uu persons whose shales are unquestionably acquired by purchase and who are not parties to tills suit, and as such disposition of them would affect a ratable, and, therefore, equitable division of them amongst all who are entitled to participate In a distribution of the cor porate assets, wo ure of the opinion that the Injunction which prohibited it should no longer remain in force. Kot Alrendy Adjudicated. If the question before us had been In volved and decided In the suit of the Vnlted States agulnHt the Northern Se curities company, or If It had been passed upon, though but Incidentally by the su premo court of the Vnlted States In dis posing of the appeal in that case, we, of course, would not regard It as an open one.

Last summer while recovering from ill ness of fever, I had a severe attack of In flammatory Rheumatism in the knees, from which I was unable to leave my room for several months. I was treated by two doc tors and also tried different kinds of lina ments and medicines which seemed to reljjeve me from pain for awhile, but at the same time I was not any nearer getting ' well. One day while reading a paper I saw an advertisement of S. S. S. for Rheuma tism. I decided to give it a trial, which I did at once. After I had taken three bot tles I felt a great deal better, and I still continued to take it regularly until I was entirely cured. I now feel better than I have for years, and I do cheerfull; vecom mend S. S. S. to any one suffering from Rheumatism. Cha. E.

Us Swift Specific Company, Atiaita, Ga. purifies and the well tlon or bill of the I'nited States did pray that the stockholders of the railroad com panies who had exchanged their stock 1 herein for stock of the Northern Securities company should be required to surrender any stock of the Northern Securities com pany so acquired and held by them and to accept therefore the railway stock In ex change for which the same Is Issued; but the decrre Insofar as it was mandatory, went no further than to prohibit the doing of "the specific thing' which being done, would effect the result denounced by the acf 193 I'nited States. 356. This was all that was requisite and It was accom- ( dished by that part of the decree which las been already quoted; and the added clause, though apparently suggested by tho prayer of the bill to which it referred was obviously not intended to have any obligatory effect. Part Sot Obllsrstorr. It was permissive merely and this plafnly appears trom Its terms that It is necessary only to direct attention to them. They are: "Hut nothing herein contained ahall be construed as prohibiting the Northern Se curities company from returning and trans ferring to the stockholders of the Northern Pacllic Railway company and the Great Northern Railway company, respectively, any and all shares of stock in either of said railway companies which the said Northern Securities company may nave heretofore received from such stockholders In exchange lor Its own stock, and nothing herein contained shall be construed ns pro hibiting the Northern Securities company from making such transfer and assignment of the stock aforesaid to such person or persons as may now be the holders and owners of its own stock originally Issued In exchange or In payment for the stock claimed to have leen acquired by It In the aforesaid railway companies." This decree was affirmed In Its entirety and the complainants asked leave to Inter vene In the Minnesota suit. The decision here reviews the Minnesota litigation and In conclusion says: From all that has been said In the fore going the decision must be reversed. Judge George A. Gray of Delaware filed a dissenting decision. He said: I dissent from the Judgment of the ma jority of this court. I do not think the Judge below other than Bound Judgment In granting the injunction. Nothing but a clear conviction that the bill was without equitv would have Justified the court below In refusing the Injunction. As I am of tho opinion that the injunction ha given due consideration to all parties to the suit and a case established to entitle complainants to the protection of the Injunction I am in favor of aflirmlng the decree. Comment of Harrlman. NEW YORK, Jan. 3. E. H. Harrlman, when he was shown the bulletin announc ing the decision of the court In the North ern Securities case, sold: "The matter now has been before four Judges, and so far it Is an even division, two having declared for us and two against us." Mr. Harrlman declined to say anything further regarding the case. The adjourned annual meeting of the Northern Securities stockholders In Ho boken today bus again been adjourned until Junuary 9. The only persons present at the meet ing were W. P. dough, the fourth vice president and the secretary-treasurer. No action except that of adjournment was taken. Representatives of the Harrlman faction were in conference today and It can be authoritatively stated that application by writ of certiorari will be made before tho supreme court at Washington. It is under stood that the decision handed down by the court In Philadelphia Is not effective or operative before thirty days. J. J. Hill was seen at his office. He said he was pleased, but not surprised, at the d.eision. There will be no haste, he said, In distributing the assets of the Northern Securities company. He had not yet received a copy of the decision, but expected it later in the day. He was asked:. "Does this mean a settlement?' and replied: "Why, yes, the court settles It." Mr. Hill was asked whether there would be a meeting of the opposing Inter est as a result of today's decision. He said he knew of no reason for such a meeting. Mr. Hill was reminded that Mr. Schiff had appeared before the directors on the Northern Securities company last summer with a settlement proposition. To this Mr. Hill replied that Mr. Schiff on that occasion showed that he stood alone In his attitude. The announcement of the Northern Se curities decision . caused a Jump In the price of Northern Securities on the curb from 132,. at which it closed on Saturday, to 135. The price then fell back to below 134. The high price of I'nion Pacific was llfi'i. compared with 113 on Saturday, and that stock then fell back a point. The whole list on the Stock exchange was af fected in sympathy with I'nion Pacific. St. Paul shot up 3H nnd Southern Pacific 1. The railroad llet genrralr? was a point or more higher than Saturday, but did not hold, and the market became dull with the uncertainty caused by the fluctuations In these dominant stock.

DECLINES TO DROP ITS FUTILE PROTEST Former Policeman Moore Brlnaa n Proteat Aaralnat Henry Rutins, but ! Overrated by the Board I nnnlmooslr. At the meeting of the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners last night W. J. Con nell, attorney for The Bee Publishing com pany, agreed to withdraw the protests against druggists licenses, applications for which were published in the World-Herald. If the latter paper would guarantee a like courtesy for the applicants for druggists' licenses advertising In The Bee. This the World-Herald declined to do and so the matter still remains In statu quo. The application of Henry Keating for a license to operate a saloon at 3J1 South Fourteenth street was protested by Fred D. Moore, ex-policeman, on the ffround that Keating is not a proper person to conduct a saloon adjacent the Krug theater, which Is asked for In the foregoing application, and on the additional ground that the es tablishment that he did run at 302 North Sixteenth street was a disorderly place. Testimony Against Moore. The remonstrance was heard before the board, Henry Rohlff and Charles McMahnn testifying In behalf of Keating. Rohlff stated that the remonstrant, Moore, had told him that he ' had been to much an noyance and expense recently as a result of his trouble as a police ofllcer ut Keat Ing's saloon on the morning of February 28 last, and that he thought he ought to be reimbursed by Keating. Rohlff asked Moore If some arrangements could not be made to withdraw the remonstrance and he said he thought ho ought to have $inn. Rohlff told him that he did not think Keat ing would consider any such proposition, and then Moore intimated to him that he thought IS00 would settle it, und wanted the settlement made through his attorney, Emil Cunningham. Charles McMahon testified that Moore had made a similar proposition to him In the city hall last Saturday morning, and that Moore had told him that by seeing his attorney the matter could be settled for $300. Moore testified that the remonstrance was made In good faith and that he did not think that Keating was a fit man to run a saloon so near the Krug theater. He denied talking to Rohlff about a settle ment. Lawyer Cunningham, Moore's attorney, stated that he had prepared and filed the protest at the Instigation of Moore. He believed that all of Moore's troubles, loss of position, etc., were directly attributable to the fact that Keatlng's saloon was un lawfully open on the Sunday morning of February 28, and that Moore was there In the lawful discharge of his duty as an officer when the trouble occurred resulting In the death of George O'Neill. In his conversation he asked Keating If this could not be settled on some basis. Proteat Overruled. There was somo further little sparring between the attorney, and Commissioner Spratlen finally moved that the protest be overruled as it was not evidently brought In good faith, and that tho application be granted and bond approved. The motion prevailed unanimously. Moore thereupon Immediately filed an ap peal against the decision of the board. Fred S. Moore,-former police officer, who was recently acquitted In the Douglas county district court of the killing of George O'Neill during an altercation In Keatlng's saloon In February , last, pre sented a petition to the board asking re instatement on the police force, and also a claim for certain pay alleged to be due from from the date of his suspension to his resignation. The application for pay was referred to the city attorney, and the ap plication for reinstatement was placed on file. The bond of Stephen P. Morris as a spe cial policeman was filed and approved. The confirmation of the appointment of Charles E. Williamson as a special police man went over until next Monday as the mayor has not signed the appointment. The report of the police relief fund was filed, showing S6.1U0 in the fund, with the recommendation that $4,000 of the fund be Invested In city bonds. The recommenda tion was approved and the city treasurer was instructed to make the Investment us requested. A letter was received from Chief of Police Kellogg of Sioux City, thanking the Omaha fire department for its prof fer of assistance during the recent confla gration In that city. Baiter Wants More Money. Chief Salter of the tire department sub mitted a communication in which he stated that the appropriation of Jl&o,uoe, less 10 per cent, would not be sufficient for the maintenance of the ..department for the ensuing year. His estimate for the ensuing year contemplates the expenditure of $1U7. 000. He recommends - that the city charter be so amended that at least $250,000 can be appropriated for the use of the depart' ment per annum for the future. He was also of the opinion that the residence por tion should have the same fire protection that is given the commercial portion. He further recommended that the new hose wagon and new city truck he put into commission at once, and that the old material It la to replace be placed In stor age. He thought that the new hose house at Eleventh and Jackson streets and the new engine house at Twenty-seventh and Jones streets should be aUo Immediately placed In commission. Upon the recommendation of the chief of the fire department John Fry was per manently appointed as an assistant en glneer. Officer William Good of the police force pleaded guilty to the charge of being In toxicated while on duty, lit promised that this Would be the last time he would ever be guilty of such an act, and after being given a wholesome lecture by Commis sioner Broatch, he was fined a forfeiture of all pay during his suspension. He was then directed restored to duty and ordered to report to Chief Donahue for duty this morning. HIATUS IN THE COUNTY BOARD Term of Old Expires Today and New Begin, on Toeaday of Next Week. The present Board of County Commis sioners ends Its term of office at midnight on Wednesday. Under the statutes as they stand at present and as they have stood for many years back the new Uourd of County Commissioners does not take office and organise for business until January 10. This leaves a hiatus of five days be tween the outgoing of the old board and the Incoming of the new one, during which time (here is no county legislature or gov erning body in existence. Of course, the business of the county goes on Just the same, the cmfcity clerk and bis staff taking care of all matters of a routine nature touching the curing for the poor and similar business. No una ap pears to know Just why this Is so, a. id no effort has seemingly ever been niude to rectify this defect In tho law govern ing: the Douglas county board. 1 SPORTS OF A DAY.

An ordinance for the extentlon of the un derground wiring district was Introduced before the city council last night by Coun cilman Evans, with the comment It had been approved by City Electrician Mich aelson nnd by the Western Union and the Postal Telegraph companies, who are prin cipally affected. The ordinance provides the underground district shall l bounded by Eighth street on the east, by Eighteenth on the west, by Capitol avenue on the north and by Jackson on the south. This Is the same as the former underground dls trict except on the south, where it Is ex tended from Howard. Within this district the new ordinance provides all wires shall be underground except clock, alarm, com mercial printer nnd such wires.

South of Jackson and Including I avenworlh street, wires are to be allowed overhead, but they are to be cabled The companies are to be allowed until September 1 to comply with the requirements. Wiring recently done by the telegraph companies has had this change In view, so that a part of the pio vtalons have been complied with. Zlmmnn and K.lhonrn Deh.ite. The council and Its spectators were treated to a very warm debate between President Zimman and City Clerk Elbourn on the question: "Resolved, The president of tho council is Justified in not approving the minutes of the council meetings as kept by the city clerk." Mr. Zimman maintained the records were untrustworthy and Mr. Ei bourn maintained Mr. Zimman was mis taken under another name, and pointed with pride to the records kept In the past. Councilman Nicholson, who held the chair during the passage-at-arms, appointed Bock and himself a committee to bring In a de cirton. A protest was read from the residents or Capitol avenue between Twenty-eighth avenue and Thirtieth street against the ex tension of the sewer along that avenue. The city clerk was authorized to issue a new warren t to J. P. Connolly for one lost, under the condition Mr. Connolly furnish the city with a bond for $iJ0 for Its protec tion. Provision was made for a board of ap praisers to examine property on Ninth street from the north line of Barker s sub division south to Spring street, with a view to widening Ninth street. A delegation of property owners In Nel son's addition was present to protest against the grading of the alley between Twenty-sixth and Twenty-seventh streets. It was shown tho alley, after going two blocks from Indiana avenue, had no outlet and Is so narrow teams could not be turned in it except by going on to the surrounding lots, which could not be done If the alley b.hucu. jne report or the appraisers was rejected. A letter from Mayor Moores was read ex pressing great regret on tho death of J. H. Evans as a member of the city govern ment and also as a citizen. A committee consisting of Messrs. CrBrlen, Back and Nicholson, was appointed to draft resolu tions of respect. Additional fire hydrants were allowed over the veto of the mayor Chief Donahue was allowed a new type, writer. The Board of Public Works was empowered to complete the Clifton Hill sewer abandoned by the contractor. The proposition to furnish an alarm box free to the Auditorium was referred to the com mittee on telegraph and telephones. Branch Library Inquiry.

It was suggested the council had a Joint interest in the matter and appoint a committee for Joint consideration. Messrs Nicholson, Hoye, Hack and O'Brien were named. Chk.f gaer of the flre dppartment . letter suggested a revision of the charter relative to the fire department. He said the city had now two flre houses which It Is unable to occupy for want of funds. It also contemplated the erection of additional houses at Twentieth and Lake streets nn1 Twenty-seventh and Davenport streets wh,ch means additional men and apparatus! .Vq6- exPen8fi estimate for lc ts $19.,000. He felt the city Is growing and the department should be enlarged so as to fur bish perfect protection to the greater resl dence and commercial districts. Ho said Investors knowing of an excellent depart ment would be more ready to expend thetr money In improvements, fie suggested the charter should allow the council to appro priate funds to ihe amount of $260,000 for the department If that amount should be come necessary. The council decided to sit as a board of equalization on the regular assessment be ginning Tuesday. January 17. and continu ng dally for five days.
