(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Sept. 16.--(Spclal.)-The fall
session of the state supreme court opened
thin morning-, one of tho first cases being
a hearing on the application of Stato
Auditor Howard for the return to his de
partment of the Insurance department of
the state, taken from the auditor's office
by ja. peremptory writ of mandamus Is
sued by the supreme court.
.The case Is really a, test of the consti
tutionality of the new Insurance law,
though there are other cases which will
lome up later which will settle that
point.
In his argument hefore the court,
Halleck, Hose, appearing as one of the
attorneys for the auditor, said that the
supreme court had no right to mandamus
n state auditor because the officer as
o part of the executive department of
tho state government, in a case of this
kind, but his main contention was that
the auditor had a right to be heard tn
the matter andthat the court could not
:sBiie a peremptory order without first
giving tho party on whom tho order was
to issue a chance to bo heard In the
ease. He -contended that no man could
be deprived of his rights as a citizen
and one of them was a right to be heard
lit an' action brought against him or
fn which he was In any way Interested.
Nebraska City C'nse.
Another case which occupied some of
the time .of the court this afternoon was
the Nebraska City recall case in which
!t b nought to recall Mayor Houston. The
tlouble ts caused, by jralxup among the
democrats of that city. Mayor Houston'
and Mr. Topping, who "desires to succeed
htm both being of that political faith.
The bone of contention is over the
legality of the petition asking for the
ousting of Mayor Houston and the seat
ing of Mr. Topping. The petition was
pifbented by the city clerk to the city
lummlsflon, but they failed to call the
election. The petitioners then wen to tin
((Billet court tor a writ of mandamus to
compel the commissioners to rail 'the
fctacllon and were sueceful in getting
tr.e writ, but Mayor Houston lias appealed
to the higher eourt.

In round number acuxirdlng to the
Wall titreet Journal, Union Paclfio made
a total profit of 120,000,000 on Its purchase
and final sale of tho $128,CW,CCO Southern
Paclfio stock. The average cost per share
to Union Pacific was ?6. For 133,000,000
par value of Southern Pacific stock, which
cost 125,500,000, Union Pacific received 142,

proximately 140,000,000. Here Is a clear
profit of lll.Mn.WW,
On the 189,000,000 Southern Pacific stock
sold to the Union Paclfio stockholders,
the profit per share, less underwriting
was about $10, making a total profit on
this end of the transaction of 18,800,000,
This together with the amount realized
from the exchange of the Baltimore &
Ohio securities makes a total profit to
tne Union Pacific of lM.000.dOO. In othor
words, Union Pacific at an average price
of $75 per share, paid about $31,987,600 for
tho $120,00,000 par value of Southern Pa
cific stock and received for It in Balti
more & Ohio stock and cash the equiv
alent of approximately $115,287,600.
If the Union Pacific should distribute
only this to the common shareholders
alone, It would mean a special dividend
of a little more than 9 per cent. How
ever, there havo been no official Intima
tions that the Union Paclfio directors In
tended to place the possible extra divi
dend' upon such a basis.
Union Pacific acquired tho Southern Pa
cific stock In threu lots. The first block
amounting to $75,000,000 par was purchased
In 1901 at about (53 a share and to raise
funds for the acquisition, Union Pacific
sold $40,000,000, 4 per cent convertible

was bought the following year at $7 a
