Merchants Win From Ramblers by
Score of 6 to 2 in a Long
Baseball Session.
From Monday's Dany.
Yesterday afternoon the Mer
chants of this city copped the hon
ors in a two hour struggle on the
local lot from the Ramblers, reput
ed as one of the fastest young teams
of Omaha, by the score of 6 to 2. f
The attendance at the game was j
only fair as the good roads and the
lures of the summer had evidently j
proved too great tor tne ians ana
drew them away from the exhibi
tion of the national pastime.
For the locals William Harvey Ma
son was the selection for the box and
was in the best of form with ten
strike outs to his credit and was
touched for only three hits, one of
which was for a century, Shanahan,
the sturdy young lad who was ramb
ling around first sack for the Ramb
lers, touched one of Eill's slow ones
in the third inning for a drive over
the right field fence but the hit did
little damage as there was no one on
base and only one run registered.

Passed Away Yesterday at Home in
This City After Illness of
Some Duration.
Prom Monday s Daily
Mike Stiles, one of the well known
residents of the south portion of the
city, passed away yesterday at his
home following an illness of some
duration and from which Mr. Stiles
has been suffering for the last year
altho it was not until last March
that he was compelled to cease his
activities and remain confined to his
home the greater part of the time.
Mr. Stiles was born in Chicago,
111.. October 8, 1860, and spent his
early boyhood In that city and later
came to Nebraska where he was mar
ried in 1884 at Central City. The
family came here twenty years ago
when Mr. Stiles took up his work
with the Burlington as bridge watch
man and continued in that position
until March 17th, last, when his
failing health compelled him to lay
aside his active duties. To mourn his
death there remains the wife and
three children, Orville M. Stiles of

Mrs. Orville Johnson, both of this
The preliminary hearing in the
Parmele case was completed Satur
day afternoon when the last of the
evidence was offered by the State of
Nebraska, and the case submitted
without argument to Judge William
Deles Dernier. -
The defense offered a motion to
strike out two of the counts in the
complaint, one for the sum of $8,000
'and one for $4,000 for which the de
i fendant was not responsible, under
the testimony offered, the defendant's
attorney contended, and which they
asked the court to dismiss.
The matter was taken under ad
visement by the court and a decision
promised by Wednesday or Thursday
of this week. In the event of the
court holding for the etate, the mat
ter will be appealed to the district
court as Mr. Parmele had entered a
plea of not guilty to the charges of
illegal borrowing of the bank funds,
which were preferred against him.

South Omaha Joy Riders Draw Down
Wrath of the Law Early San-
day Morning for Racing.
At a very early hour Sunday morn
ing when the residents of the city
were full in the enjoj-ment of their
slumbers and resting nicely, a party
of speeders from the south portion
r: ' J, S . .
visited the city and proceeded to at-
tempt to turn the rough and rocky
paving of Main street into a resemb-
lance to the Ak-Sar-Ben race track,
and with the result that Chief of;
Police Barclay proceeded to visit on
the two cars of the young men the
wrath of the law and caused them to
part with numerous dollars of the
coin of the realm for their violation
of the driving ordinances of the city.
The young men made a settlement
that would cover their fine and costs
for the offense and after spending a
short time in custody proceeded on
their way rejoicing that their pen
alty had been no more severe.
The good weather and the in
creasing improvement of the roads
has led to the tourists coming out
in increasing numbers and the bright
moonlight nights an inducement to
speed along the streets and highways,

Passed Away Last Evening Follow
ing Severe Fall Last Thursday
and Stroke of Paralysis.
Last evening at 9:30 Thomas C.
Dabb, one of the old residents of the
city, passed to his final reward fol
lowing an illness of several days and
which was preceded by a severe fall
on last Thursday at the home in the
west portion pf the city. On this
occasion Mr. Dabb had been out in
the yard and while walking around
fell and suffered a concussion of the
head and which was followed by a
paralytic stroke that was so severe
that little hopes of tbe recovery of
the aged gentleman was entertained.
He gradually grew worse until the
death that occurred last evening.
Thus, another of the men who
have had an Important part in the
early life of the city is called away
and leaves the fast thining ranks of
the pioneer - residents of the com
munity. Mr. Dabb was a native of
Cornwall. England, where he was
born August 3. 183G, and when four
teen years of age he came to Amer
ica and on reaching his majority
was admitted to citizenship in the
j T-nitort stat and h?s since in his
daily actions been vorthy of the
splendid opportunities vuit this citi
zenship brought and a firm and loy
al supporter of his adopted country.
While residing in the east he was
married to Miss Ann Idwin at Eliza
beth. New Jersey, and shortly after
their wedding the young people
started west to find a home, locat
ing first at Mineral Point. Wiscon
sin, and later moving to Parkers
burg, Virginia, and then to Zaliski,
Ohio, where they made their home
for some time.
It was while living in Ohio that
Mr. Dabb met C. G. Green, now re
siding in Lincoln, and who has been
a lifelong friend, their families be
ing neighbors in aliski. On May 4,
1874, Mr. Dabb. with Mr. Green, and
a number of other residents xf their
home town departed westward in
search of a greater opportunity and
a short time later arrived at Platts
mouth where the two friends locat
ed and brought their families here
later to make their home. The Dabb
family have since made their home
here and for the last forty years
have occupied the home at 13th and
Main street where Mr. Dabb had
erected a cozy and comfortable home
and on which he has lavished his
spare time in making an ideal home
in every way. Several years ago Mr.
Dabb parted with his old friend, Mr.
Green, who has since removed to
Lincoln and now resides there.
To bless the marriage of Mr. and
Mrs. Dabb, eight children were born
six of whom have preceded the fath
er in death and the two surviving
children are Mrs. Guy C. Moore of
Seattle, Washington, and Mrs. Emily
Morrison, who is at home and has
assisted in the care of the aged fath
er and mother in their declining
years of life. There are also seven
grandchildren as well as four great
grandchildren to share in the sorrow

Mr. Dabb has been a member of
the Masonic order for the past forty
five years and he will be laid to rest
by this order in which he has been

Mr. Dabb has been affiliated with the

passed away firm in this faith.

One of the most severe storms in
the past two years broke over the city
last evening following a day of the
most intense humidity when the
temperature rose to 106 in the shade
and the storm while bringing a tem
porary relief from the heat, did much
damage over the city, none of which
was severe, however.
The clouds began to roll up in the
northwest shortly after 5 o'clock and
bj 9 o'clock the gathering storm
sent the residents of the city scurry
ing to their homes to avoid the
threatening danger and there were
few, other than the business men, on
the strect when the storm reached its
severest stage from 10 to 11:30.
The greatest damage reported was
in the destruction of the trees and
there was not a section of the city
that did not have a large array of
broken down trees and limbs torn
up by the storm and hurled over the
streets and a menace to the safety
of the persons who were on their
way home when the storm broke. In
the main portion of the city the driv
ing wind threatened to break in the
windows of the business houses on
the south side of Main street and on
the R. A. Eates building at Fifth
and Main street, a large section of
the tiling on the root" of the build
ing was blown-off and onto tbe side
walk on Fifth street, just missing
striking Frank Dunbar who had left
his home in the building, just a few
reconds before and barely escaped the
force of the heavy tiling.
In the west portion of the city the
storm seems to have been the most
severe and large trees were snapped
off and at the residence of Joseph
Iladraba, the druggist, a limb from
a large cottonwood tree narrowly
missed crashing through the roof of
the house and as it was. fell on the
garden plot completely covering it.
The limb was very large and heavy
and a few feet fartner would have
sent it " crashing through the roof.
Fruit trees suffered severely from
the hail that followed the wind and
for a few moments the hail stones
large as hens eggs pelted the trees
and stripped them of their fruit and
did a great deal of damage to all
kinds of fruit, and peaches that were
just forming were battered from the
trees and there will be very few that
will survive to tell the tale.
South of the city the storm was
not severe except for the wind and
at Union a large plate glass store
front in the M. WT. A. building was
blown in and the wind laid low a
large part of the wheat and other
crops "in that localitj and the roads
strewn with the remnants or tne
trees and branches that had been
blown down.
One of the severest trials of the
storm was the fact that the electric
light lines were out of commission
for. quite a time and made the travel
on the streets dangerous and very
uncomfortable and in the homes
there was a frantic rush for candles.
lamps or any other lighting device
that might be found.
The telephone lines were also af
fected by the storm all over the coun
ty and south of the city the electric
light lines were blown down near
the Ed Spangler farm.

State Supreme Court Affirms District
Court in Action of Frank E.
Schlater vs. E. G. Dovey.
Krom Tuesdays Daily.
One of the pieces of litigation that
has been before the district and state
supreme court a great deal in the
last few years in that of the issues
arising out of the claims of the heirs
of the estate of Jane A. Dovey, de
ceased, and against the estate of the
late Edward G. Dovey, as represent
ed by the firm of E. G. Dovey & Son.
The state supreme court yesterday
passed on the case of Frank E. Schla
ter, administrator of the estate of
Jane A. Dovey, deceased and repre
senting the heirs, Edward Grosvenor
Dovey and George O. Dovey, against
the firm of E. G. Dovey & Son, and
affirmed the judgment of the district
court of Cass county and found for
the heirs of the estate of Jane A.
The case dates back to the death
of Mrs. Jane A. Dovey in this city
in 1913, and at which time there was
filed in the county court a will of
fered as the last will and testament
of the deceased lady and in which
she willed her interest In the estate
of her late husband, Edward G. Do
vey, to her two grandsons, Edward
Grosvenor Dovey and George O. Do
vey, sons of H. N. Dovey, frer son.
The case was fought in the lower
court by the administrator of the
estate of E. G. Dovey and the county
court found judgment in the sum
of $76,000 for the heirs of Jane A.
Dovey and admitted the will and fix
ing the share in the estate.
On appeal to the district court the
case was affirmed and appealed to
the state supreme court and since
that time the action has been fol
lowed by a number of actions that
have overshadowed the original
cause of action and the original de
cree and judgment modified. Frank
E. Schlater, who was appointed as
the administrator of th estate of
Jane A. Dovey, has appeared in the
case representing the heirs.
After the long period of litigation
the final decision of the state court
seems to settle the matter and re
moves from that tribunal one of the
most noted legal battles that has

from Tuesday's Daily.
Last evening at the Knights of Co-
lumbus hall was held a most de
lightful surprise- and reception in
honor of the first anniversary of the
ordination of the nev. H. F. Haukap.
rector of St. John's Catholic church.
The affair had been carefully plan
ned by the members of the Knights
of Columbus and the Catholic Daugh
ters of America, as a fitting observ
ance of the anniversary of the en
try of their rector into the priest
hood and the completion of the
course of study that entitled him to
take up the work of the ministry of
the church. Very quietly the plans
had been matured and it was not for
some time after the rector had been
at the hall that he discoven-d the na
ture of the pleasant event and the
deep feeling of affection that had
prompted the gathering.
During the evening a very pleas
ing program was given consisting of
a piano solo by Clement Janda, a
piano and violin duet by August
Knoflicek and Mary Krooflicek. a vo
cal number by Miss Genevieve Fin
ney of Omaha, one of the most de
lightful numbers on the program,
and a piano number by Teresa Weber
a3 well as a vocal solo by Frances
Finney of Omaha and the formal pro
gram closed with a piano number by
Miss Knoflicek.
At an appropriate time Rev. Ferdi
nand Suesser, rector of the Holy
Rosary church, arose and in a short
and well chosen speech presented
the guest of honor, Rev. Haukap,
with a purse donated by the mem
bers of the parish as a token of their
gratitude for his zeal and earnes-t
work in their behalf during his Mh
in the city. It was with the greatest
of emotion that Rev. Haukap re
sponded at this touching tribute
from his flock and expressing his
feeling at the display of kindly re
gard given.
The ladies served very dainty re
freshments at a suitable hour that
a-dded much to the delights of the
occasion and the members departed
wishing that they might have many
more pleasant opportunities of visit
ing with Father Haukap.
