The Omaha ie trust refused to
sell ice to two citizens who com
plained of short weight , and are now
being investigated by a grand jury.
The World-Herald exposed the ice
trust in a write up of existing con
ditions. Omaha people have been
compelled to pay 60c per cvvfc. for
ice this year and have then had to
put up with short weights. City
Attorney Slabaugh faileJ to respond
spend when first called upon to
take action against the ice trust ,
but when Jim Dahlnian told him
that something had to be done he
called a grand jury. Mayor Dahl-
man said if the ice trust refused to
sell ice to a citizen of Omaha who
had the money to pay for it , he
would send policemen to take charge
of the driver of such wagon , dump
the ice in the gutter and smash up
the wagons. It takes such men as
Mayor Dahlman to go after the
trusts. He is the kind of a man
that will do something.

Swindler Gets Thousand.
Fremont , Neb. , Sept. 10. A
swindler who has been "working"
small towns is ahead about SI,000
by his transactions and that fact
has just come to light through the
appearance of some of the worth
less checks at Hooper. The first
check was cashed at the Valentine
State bank at Valentine , Neb. , last
Thursday , it was presented by a
stranger who claimed to be a Dodge
county farmer in search of ranch
property. The check was for § 550
and was drawn on the first Na
tional bank of Hooper , with the
forged signature of Cashier John
Heine. It purported to be signed
by Perry Smith and was made pay
able to Joseph Smith. The Valen
tine bank cashed the paper with
out investigating. On Friday a
check for § 450 , drawn on the First
National bank of Hooper was cash
ed at the Torringfcon , Wyoming ,
State bank , bearing the signature
of C. W. Adams and being made
payable to F. W. Young. This
check has just been presented at
the Hooper bank and the forgery
discovered. The officers have a
clue that they will follow. A
stranger who visited the Hooper
bank several days ago is believed
to have secured a number of blank
checks from one of the customers
counters. State Journal.
