The final hearing- In an Injunction brought by tha Missouri Paclflo Railroad company to hare tha city of Omaha restrained from proceeding according to tha provisions of the city ordinance to compel the railroad to build a Yleduet across It track at Korty-flfth and Dodge stream u In prog ress this morntng before Judge T. C Monger of the federal court. The Injunc tion vu originally brought to the Omaha division of the federal court before Judge tV. H. Manger, but oaring to the fact that he has been called to 8. Louis to alt In several esses which are now before the t'nlted States circuit court of appeals, the final hearing of the case Is taking place In the Lincoln division of the court. The city of Omaha has for a long time been trying to compel the railroad to build such a viaduct on account of the fact. as the attorneys for ths city allege, that the Intersection of the company' tracks with the street have rendered the highway dan gerous to pedestrians and those who are using the highway for purpose of the transportation of traffic They regard the railroad crossing at that point a a public nuisance endangering the lives and safety of the people who use the highway. The main question In the controversy U whether the mayor and the council of the city have the right to require the railroad company to build a viaduct, at their own expense, of such a character that It can be used by the street railway company to run It heavy car across. Weald Eaeape Parian AIL Ths attorney who are appearing for the city In the hearing contend that the pres ence of the railroad tracks at this point has made the highway unsafe and that they are under the legal and moral duty to re store a street surface which will be just a safe and which can be used by all the people and for all the classes of trafflo for which It was rightfully used prior to the time that the tracks were put there. This, they say, can only be accomplished by the building of a viaduct across the tracks for the use of the usual trafflo on tha street and for the street oar company, w hlch transports something like M par cent of the people who ride on the street. In view of the many decisions which the I'nlted States supreme court has handed sow In similar cases, the attorney for the Missouri Paclflo, Mr. Brogea. admit that the company Is bound to build a "Viaduct suitable for the use of ordinary traffle and pedestrians, but he Is arguing that the railroad should not be compelled to pay the entire coat of building a viaduct of such also and character as to permit ths street car company to run thirty-ton cars across It. The railroad company contends that street cars are not usual or ordinary attributes of the highway's trafflo and that the street car company should bear a share of the expense of the construction of such viaduct If they are to be permitted to use H. The question raises some delicate points of law and is being hard fought by both parties to the case. Several accidents have occurred at this crossing in Omaha during tha last few years and the city desires to force the railroad to build the viaduct so as to eliminate the danger which now at tends those who use the street. He Del tar Gas Vet. IJncoln gas consumers will not be given dollar aes, as a result of the signature of waivers of refund claims by 60 per cent of ths patrons of ths Linooln Gas company. After two week of consideration the east era stockholders of ths company today notified Manager Adams that the proposed reduction would not be given. alter Breaks Referee. Francis M.

Protesting aTa'eat an Increase In street car fares to I cents straight a committee representing the South Lincoln Protective association appeared this forenoon before the State Hallway commission. In support of the claims of the company that six for a quarter is too low, there was presented a tabulation showing that the company had a deficit of fS.JSSU for a period of e.ght months ending October 11. the de ficit Including the tayroent of Interest on tonds, Interest on bills payable and divi dends cn preferred stock. The committee of citliens comprising E. A. Carr, Fred B. Humphrey. K. E. Wolf. W. Q. Siamm and fc. l Swab, presented thrown Mr. Wolfe a statement amkeo from the annua report of President Sharp to stockholders, of the money, showing that since June 30, VM, the i-esrngcr traffic had increased lit per c nt. the car mileage had decreased 4 1 per cut and the number of passengers per car rnlle had Increased 17 per cant. The com mi t tee sought to show that a low rate Increasea tratflo and that the consolidated company had decreased Its car mileage by doing away with duplicate lines in sums innar.ces. It a as contended that the mlle ase operated under the consolidation of tlie Ouitni' and the Traction companies ! practically the same. Opseee - rt" Teatlntaay. The abolition of the so-called expert med ical testimony by the creation cf a- spe cial commission for such cases as may involve special medical questions Is one of ths legislative propositions which is receiving favor at the hands of tls Ne braska Medical association. The ietnsLatie committee of the associa tion today niiilod letters to physicians a.l over ths stale taking fur further sug gestion sa to the exact nature of the laws I) be presented to the stats lrff'slature. This is ths second request cf the commit tee, being an amplification of a letter sect out a month ax a. Other propmted cr.scl Uirr.u are the creation of a nonpartisan board of control for state cnanleb'.e ini tuuobs and ths esiebllstuneot of a state hospital for the Indigent tuberculosis and for the tuberculosis Insane. in advocating the propped change In court proceedlnrs, the physicians seek to do away with the evils connected with the present practice of offering expert testi mony, paid for Ty the plaintiff or the de fendant, according as ths one or the other side is benefited by ths testimony of ths particular witness summoned. Ths pro posed law will provide that. In cases where technical or special medical questions were at Issue, the Judge shall appoint an un prejudiced commission, which shall hear the testimony on the professional points In doubt and determine the issue. The members of this commission shall not be called up as expert witnesses, nor shall they be subject to cross-examination by ths attorneys for the other si da By such a commission ths legislative committee of the medical association be lieves that greater accuracy of fact can bs secured and wtth less expense and difficulty to the court. It thinks that the present frequent occurrence f radically differing expert testimony being offered on a technical question will be done away with. Jurors uninitiated In ths technicali ties of medicine will Dot be called upon to dlctde disputed facts In this special field. Especially, say the physician, will ths oommlsslon simplify criminal trials, where Insanity la alleged as an excuse for the crime. CI a a Heart rwevaeae. The case against Henry Shrank and Wil liam Brandt officers of the Platt-DeutscHe Vsreln club, charged In police court wltn ths Illegal sals of liquor, which was set for trial this morning at J o'clock before Judge Rimer, was postponed till Dexsemebr n st the sams hour. Tha caa of ths tat againjrt Qua Bauer and Fred Waller, offi cers of ths Dsutscher FanJeleln club, which was set for trial tomorrow morning, was also postponed to the same date. Bonds In both cases for tbs defendants were renewed by the court. These organisations, which ars known as German family clubs, were raided Satur day night by the police and a large quan tity of beer and whisky taken away and carted to the station on dray. At the time if the raid bars were maintained, according to the oplioa, and a large number of men were In the club rooms drinking. The attorney for the defendants asked for a poatponement that the matter may be brought before the excise board at It meet ing early next week. It 1 understood that both clubs ars anxious to Install ths locker system, which prevails In soros ot the other social organisations in ths city, and It Is thought that an understanding may be reached which will result in no further trouble with the municipal authorities. Last spring when the excise board or dered the social club to close their bars ths two Oerman clubs agreed with ths Elks and Eagles to comply with this order. The board gave each of them a certain time to comply with the order. The Elks and Eagle cut out the bar In connection with the demands ot the board and prominent members of the two Ger man club declared that these had also obeyed the order. Statements were made which declared that there were no longer bars In ths headquarters of these organisations. Costs Less to Marry Than to Pay Court William Snell and Maxgxret Merkle United in Hall County When Adam County Fail. HASTINGS, Nab.. Dec. . (Special.) Failing in their effort to secure a mar riage license here, owing to the pendency of a criminal action against tbs groom, William Snell and Margaret Merkle went to Grand Island, obtained the coveted license from the Hall county Judge yester day and were quickly made husband and wife. Some weeks ago Snell and Miss Merkle were discovered In Nelson and ths for mer was arrested by Deputy Sheriff Nellls on the charge of enticing the girl away from her home In Hanover township. He was brought back to Hastings and after arraignment the trial was postponed. Early this wsek Snell applied for a license to wed Miss Merkle, but Judgs Button de clined to Issue the license white the crim inal action was pending. The county at torney declined to dismiss ths case until the defendant paid the cost. Snell did some figuring and found that it would cost less to take his flanca over to Grand Island than It would to settle the court bill here. As the wife will not testify against her husband. It Is not likely ths case against Snell will be pressed. SHERIFFS MEET AT COLUMBUS Ossaha Selects for Nest Cewveatlee J. It. Dsakel ef Cruel lalaaa Made President. COLUMBUS. Neb..
