Wm. Tinker of Avoca Has Smashup
on Highway Between Here and
Murray Last Night.
A quite serious auto accident oc
curred last evening on the federal
highway between this city and Mur
ray and as the result of which, Wil
liam Tinker of Avoca had his auto
almost demolished by collision with
an unknown auto.
The accident- occurred while Mr.
Tinker was driving to this city and
a3 he was driving northward a large
car came toward the south with very
bright lights that completely blind
ed Mr. Tinker and as he was unac
quainted with the road he was afraid
to turn out any farther to the right
altho he made all possible effort to
get as far as he could without dan
ger on his side of the road. . , -v
The southbound car was coming
at a high rate of speed and the wheel
of the car struck the left front wheel
of the Tinker car and completely
turned the Avoca car around and as
well tore off the left front wheel of
Mr. Tinker's gas wagon. The car was
yery badly damaged but the car that
caused the accident was evidently
uninjured as it contlpued on its way
and did not stop to see whether Mr.
Tinker was injured or not.
Shortly after the accident, B. A.
Rosencrans and family came along
and almost ran into the damaged
car which was without lights and
they found Mrv Tinker in a dazed
condition as the result of the acci
dent and gave what aid was poss
ble, but the car was so badly dam
aged that it. will require a great
deal of work to repair it.
Jay E. Worley, wife and children
motored down last evening from Lin
coln to spend the night here as visi
tors at the home of Mrs. V. V. Leon
ard, mother of Mrs. Worley and this
morning Mr. Worley continued on
to Omaha to look after some busi
ness. Blank Books at the Journal Office.

SHERIFF NABS THE
MAKER OF PHONEY
Friday Proved to be His Unlucky
Day for Sure Now Languish
es in the County Jail.
Yesterday afternoon a young man
entered the store of Frank Fanger
on upper Main street and began to
inquire as to the price of a number
of articles and after making a pur
chase, produced a check for the sum
of $6.50 which was drawn on the
Farmers State Bank and was signed
by "C. E. Brown." Mr. Stout en
dorsed the check on the back and
this caused his downfall as the sig
nature of "Brown" was too much
like 'Stout" for the wiley depart
ment store owner to fall for and he
stalled with the man Stout until
Sheriff Quinton could be called to
An inaulry by the sheriff at the
bank disclosed that , there .was no
depositor, -by the name:.of C. E.
Brown" and as far as the bank was
concerned the check was merely "a
scrap of paper." Mr. Stout was es
corted by the sheriff to the county
jail, where he will be the guest of
Sheriff Quinton until the matter is
taken up by the county attorney,
who is out of the city.

better, but is looking greatly im
proved. Mr. McNurlin has been
without the sight of his right eye
for the past few years and in the
last few months it has been very
sore and gave him almost unbear
able pain until the decision was
made to have the eye removed.
Since the operation, he has gain
ed rapidly and while it was impos
sible to restore the sight to the eye,
it has checked his suffering and will
save the sight of the remaining eye.

DECISION IS MADE THURSDAY
Drastic Change Announced Here To
day Means Much to Busi
ness Interests of City.
At the meeting of the Burlington
officials at Lincoln Thursday at
which was present Vice President
Bracken of Chicago, the decision was
made for a readjustment of the shop
forces of the road and in the decis
ion the shops in this city suffer a
loss of 40 per cent in the working
; force and there will be several de
' partments removed .from the shops
here to other points, the greater part
going to Havelock under the present
The change will mean a great deal
to the city here and to the men who
had been employed here prior to the
strike as the men are largely home
owners and were expected to return
to work when the present strike was
over, but under the order issued
there will be necessary a re-adjustment
of the conditions as the oppor
tunity for the employment of the
men will not be here.
Under the orders prepared the
brass foundry which has been for
some time under discussion for mov
ing will be taken away at once and
which has employed some twenty
men in its work.
The freight car repair department

also be moved, leaving only a very yotes the greater part of,nis reas
few here to care for what necessary
repairs may be required for refriger
ator and other cars, that might be
set out here for temporary repair.
The mill that has employed quite
a number of men will be cut down
to the smallest possible force, only
the machinery necessary to supply
material for coach work being left
The lumber yard, used in supply
ing the material for the freight and
coach shops will also be removed
under the present orders to other
points, on the system.
The coach shop, blacksmith shop.
Inachine shop, tin shop, paint shop
and the steel car shop of the freight
car department will remain here un
der the decision of the officials at
the Lincoln meeting.
: The officials have, expressed much
dissatisfaction over the attitude of
the business Interests of the city in
the strike, as they claim the greater
part. of the community were warmly
in sympathy with the former em
ployes who have, been out on a strike
and accordingly, make this the basis
of one of their reasons for making
the changes in the shops here.
How this view can be recon
ciled with the attitude of the
people of Havelock is hard to
understand, as in that place
there has been a great deal of
hostility shown toward the rail
road, company and much more
violence than was ever thought
The strikers have been most order
ly here in their contest and better
conditions cannot be found anywhere
on the Burlington rystem than pre
vail here in Plattsmouth.
The change in the shops wipes out
a great deal of the splendid efficiency
that has been built up here under
Superintendent William Baird, who
has been untiring under all condi
tions to make his institution one of
the most efficient on the entire sys
tem of the Burlington.

FIFI IS GIVEN THE
DECISION IN FAM
OUS DIVORCE CASE
Wife of James Stillman Exonerated
and Baby Guy Found to be
a Legitimate Child. '
Poughkeepsie, X. Y., Sept. 29.
Mrs. Fifi Potter Stillman today was
awarded the decision in her famous;
divorce action with James A. Still-1
man, millionaire and former presi
dent of the National City bank.
In the decision of Referee Daniel
Gleason, filed by him in the county
court at Carmel, X. Y., and made
public here, the following points are
made: , y
1. The proof does not show that
Mrs. Stillman was guilty of adultery
with Fred Beauvis, an Indian guide.
2. The infant Guy Stillman is a
legitimate child of Stillman and Mrs.
Stillman and not the child of Fred
3. The plaintiff, Stillman,. was
guilty of adutery with Florence
Leeds and has two children by her.
However, no divorce is granted to
Mrs. Stillman, as she did not apply
for acuta! separation.
Gleason's recommendations will go
before Supreme Court Justice Mor
schauser at Poughkeepsie and he will
be required either to confirm of re
Stillman's attorney probably will
file objections to such confirmation,
however, and will also appeal the
case, which will lead to a further
The referee decided there was not
sufficient proof to show that Still
man also associated with two other
women known as "Helen" and
Although Referee Gleason, in sum
marizing the evidence, has grouped
greater part ot . his reas
oning to the question of legitimacy
of Baby Guy, which he says has been
established beyond a reasonable
The misconduct of the plaintiff he
also finds precludes him from any
relief in the action while on the other
hand the defendant had offered proof
to establish the falsity of the charges
that had been brought against her.
Gleason's decision means that
Stillman's application for a divorce
will be denied and that Baby Guy
Stillman will share in the $6,000,
000 trust fund established by his
grandfather, James Stillman,
same as the other children.

Air service engineers have about
completed the remodeling of the
monoplane T-2, in which the trans
continental trip is to be attempted.
The ship was originally designed to !
carry a pilot and eight passengers,
and to have a normal gasoline ca
pacity of 130 gallons with a flight
endurance of about six hours. In
preparation for the long distance
dash, the machine has been changed
to increase the fuel capacity about
sixfold, so that an adequate fuel sup-,
ply for more than 5,000 miles will
As remodeled the T-2 will carry
725 gallons of gasolir" distributed in
three tanks, together with reserve
water and lubricating oil tanks. The
two pilots will be set so that they
can relieve each other at intervals in
the expected thirty-two hour flight.
Provisions for dual controls and for
means to pass Lack and forth from
one compartment to the other- was
made in the plans, which has also
been reinforced throughout to carry
the additional load.
