suit being heard in Judge McCourt’s
department of the circuit court was
not completed as the Herald went to
press, having been postponed because
of the death of a relative of the judge
until this (Friday) morning at 10
o’clock. At that time Attorney Mc
Nary for the remonstrants will arrue
his case, the city’s presentation being
completed. About a dozen witnesses
were put on by the citv. including a
number of residents of the district,
while the remonstrants had nine or
ten witnesses. The city had exhibits
showing the muddv condition of the
streets at certain seasons of the year
und testimony was offered bv the fire
department regarding their difficul
ties in getting to fires over the streets
in the winter time. The citv health
officer ascribed the large number of
contagious diseases to the luck of a
sewer in the district and presented
figures tending to prove that this sec
tion had more contagious diseases in
proportion to other sections.
L. A. McNary, attorney for Chilson
and other property owners of the dis
trict who oppose construction of the
sewer, argued that part of the sewer
will bi- outside of the citv limits and
that the city, therefore, has no right

While the Herald representative
was not present at the trial, we are
informed that Attorney McNary made
a very able presentation of his case,
making the most of every point possi
ble for him. It is also said that the
trial was absolutely free from per
sonalities nnd that both ski« were
acting in perfect good faith.
NEBRASKA PEOPLE IN
SEARCH OF J. W. HODGSON
The Herald was this week in re
ceipt of a request from the police de
partment of the city to look up a man
by the name of Jack Hodgson, ad
dress unknown but supposed to be in
Lrats. A communication from Neb
raska had been received and placed in
the hands of Inspector Craddock and
the latter called upon us. With the
assistance of John D., Mr. Hummel
of 9314 54st avenue and others, it
was finally learned that the man
wanted had left here last soring and
his present whereabouts were un
known. His wife and her sister were
located in other parts of the citv and
placed in communication with the pul.
Ice, it being thought that the women
were the on« reallv sought because
of the illness or death of a relative in
the east. J. W. Hodgson was former
ly a resident of this district on 51st

ern Pacific railroad.
EIGHTY WHITNEY CHORUS
BOYS RETURN TO HOMES
Eighty members of the Whitnev
boys' chorus, which left here some
tm< ago for a trip through California
returned Thursday of last week to
their homes In this city. The 50 re
maining members of the chorus will
continue with their trip south, re
turning here about September 1. The
members who returned started on
their home trip from Sacramento un
der the direction of James H. Price,
who accompanied the chorus south.
The chorus was received enthusias
tically everywhere it appeared. The
Y. M. C. A. and similar organizations
too good care of the boys and ths trip
was successful in everv wav. It was
found impractical for the entire or
ganization to continue the California
state tour. A meeting of the boar!
of directors of the chorus was held
last Friday evening at which plans
for future activities were discussed.
Mr. Harding’s world parley plan is
reported to be pleasing to foreign
governments. The world will breathe
more freely when it has something
more tangible than a report to base
its faith upon.
