'J'lio citizens' coinmiltno appointed to
tnku notion in rcfori'iico to closing saloons
on .Sunday back doors us well as those
in front arc actively at work. A moot
ing was liai ) on Wednesday , at ldeli
1'olico Jmljrc btenberK and Marshal
Cnniinin sere present by Invitation ,
and the situation was discussed at length
iliidfjo Stcnbcrtf stated that Inst summer
several weeks' time was devoted in his
court to the hcaiini ; of liquor cases , homo
twenty-live complaints having been filed
by the law anil ordoi loaguc and Marshal
Cununiiigs ; that the best men in Omaha
bad boon selt-ctcsd as jmors in some of
these cases , lawyers for the prosecution
being hired by tin- law and older league
and others , but the outcome \\as gener
ally unsatisfactory , conviction being
had but in fuw cases , and where
appeals were tnkcn to the district coin t
no attention was paid to thum by the dis
trict attorney , all of which was very an
noying to the city officials , who really do-
Hired to have the law enforced. The Slo-
climb law provides for the issuance of a
II eo ii MI to soil liquor , penalties being at-
lixed for violations of the law by those so
licensed. In view of the fact that a
strained construction of the law in its ap
plication here permits saloon men to p.iy
the $1,000 , license money in quarterly in
stallments of $ . . ' 50 , the license being actu
ally issued upon payment of tlio last in
stallment , pai ties arrested claim they
have not incurred the penalties aforesaid
because they aio not "so licensed , "
though claiming the protection of the law
in carrying on business alter paying the
first : ? LT,0 , Thus lar this defense has
availed with jurinSj though occasionally
one is found of dillerent libro , and a coif-
viction , Hun and an appeal to the district
Judge Stonberg also complained ot the
lack ot elllcicney in proceedings in his
court on accourt of there being no one to
prosecute , police ollirers frequently chip
ping in to pay a lawyer to perform that
duty in cases ol unusual importance ,
which stale of attains ho charaetcri/od as
disgraceful in the extreme. Violators of
the law are fully posted in this regard ,
and take advantage of the situation.
Judge fatcnbcrg said that the absolute
necessity of an assistant city attorney ,
who will attend every session of the po
lice court , cannot bo denied. His salary
could be paid ten times over by the in
creased rcycnuo Ironi lines. This is a
matter which should be considered at tiio
bar mooting , to bo held to day even-
ng , to consider amendments to the city
Marshal Cummings was asked whether
ho intended to enforce tlio order , or sug
gestion , rather , of Mayor 15oyd in refer
ence to closing the front doors only of
saloons on Sunday and very promptly
replied in thn negative. lie then gave si
detailed account' his talk with the
mayor on the subject of Sunday closing ,
closing at midnight , etc. , the conclusion
being that it was left chiefly to his discre
tion ; ho had made aneflbrt to enforce tlio
midnight law , however , whereupon saloonkeepers
loon-keepers had complained that it re-
suited in increased sales of liquor at
houses of bad repute and that the prose
cution of that class of cases had generally
resulted in appeals to the district court ,
whore they are quietly sleeping
and will prqlfably continue to
slumber. He said that when ho had
prodded District Attorney Kstcllc up in
login d to those and other liquor caM-s
where appeals had been taken , that olli-
cial had replied that the pioof was too
weak to secure convictions , As to the
closing of front doors of saloons and
allowing back doors to remain open , ho
considered such a scheme absiud and
. Impossible to carry out that saloons
must bo closed cntiicly on Sunday or loft
to run full blast lie uas in laver of
etiict enforcement of the law in refercnoo
to demanding the payment of the full
$1,000 before being allowed to sell at all.

Ibal state. The no.\t was held in the res
idence of Judge Cooley in Dubuque , In. ,

the scholarship is a fact. The last con
tribution was a town lot in the city of
Picrsc , Dak. H will bo a pleasant social
event and an inspiring impetus to the
good cause for which it is giyen.
TllllJVES AT 1VOKIC.
They Break Glass nnd ICscnpi ; Uniiio-
ISurglars took advanlnge of the bad
weather Thursday night to peiform or
rather attempt to peiform , two Pjobs ,
neither of which "panned out" richly.
Hiinobaiigh Sc Taylor's place on Doug
las and fourteenth sticots was entered.
The thieves broke in by smashing in a
heavy plate glass door. They were piob-
ably frightened away , as very little was
taken. The only loss so far discovered is
that of about ten revolvers and a lew
knives. What makes this robbery a
strange one is that the officer on that neat
did not catch the thieves in the attempt.
When the plato glass was broken
in a terrific noise must have
icsi 1 ed which ought to have been
heard at least two blocks. Casey , who
was supposed to have been patrolling
thin beat , from Thiitcenth to Fifteenth ,
must have been stiangely deaf not to
have heard this noibo.
A NOTORIOUS THIEF.
Gersteiifoore Jlofusos to Como to
Omaha Without a Requisition.
Captain Cormaekjwont to the bluffs j-es-
torday morning to interview Fred Gcrstcn-
bcig , a notorious Omaha thief , who has
just been captured in tnal city. Gorsten-
berg , it may be remembered , stole a
watch , cap , pair of shoes and $2 in
money from a man named Limburg , who
hail allowed the fellowj to sleep with him.
Ho was closely questioned by the cap-
lain and practically admitted his guilt.
He positively refused to come back to
Omana without a requisition. As his
crime is hardly of sufficient magnitude to
warrant a requisition , the matter will
pi obably bo dropped. Gorstonbcnr is a
\\ell \ known thief , and was on trial a few
weeks ago in the district court on a
chaige 01 grand mrcnny. Ho was ac
quitted on a technicality.
The case of MeWhortcr A : Rollins vs.
Cooper now before Judge Wakolev ,
about a year ago , was heaid by Judge
MeCu'loch. ' where it was brought to se
cure * 300 from the defendant. It seems
that sometime before the commencement
of the suit Cooper stopped into the ollice
of plaintifl'and purchased -40,000 , bushels
of wheat , putting up as a margin on any
possible decline the sum of $700. Giain
took a tumble that day and when noon
hail come the $700 was gone.
Cooper , who works in the Union
Pacific headqu.irtens , was tele
phoned the condition of all'.iirs and ordered -
dored his agenls to close out the deal. As
considerable time elapsed before this
could bo done , wheat had sunk hlill lower
tind the 10IOT ( bushgls wore unloaded at a
saeiiliee 01 sf'JOO. Cooper refused to make
gooil the balance , > i00. ! According to

" 1 have a scheme- which I think could
be worked succc. sfully by Iho city and
county , in disposing of those vagrants
and suspicious characters who are in
festing Ibis locality , " said Judge Sten-
berg . \ cstcrday. " 1 am in favor of shipp
ing lliese men away , instead of boarding
them at the county's expense. Send
them to St. Louis or Chicago , it makes no
dillercnce whole , just so you got them
out of the. counly. It would be a much
more cu'oolive way than lo sonlcnue lliem
to a term of imprisonment in the county
jail , and at the expiration of this to turn
them looio. So far as the cost is con-
ctined. we could ship a man to St. Louis
at half rates , the expense being con-
sWerably less than it would be if the fol
low wore sent up for ten or fifteen days ,
to board at the county's cost. For example
ample , a ticket to .St. Louis would not
cost more than $5.50 , while to board a
man for , say ten days , would cost 2.1 per
cent more than that St. Louis ami Chicago
cage semi their paupers and tough cases
to us. Why shouldn't we send them
back ? "

ROLAND "REED ON A JURY.

When Roland Hoed was playing in

vtvcnturo. The company arrivcU in the
own early in the day , and Mr. Uced was
writing a letter at tiio desk of the Dcwitt
louse when an ollielal looking indiv idual
nppionched and tapped him on lhe houl-
ler , with the query
"Isyour name Hoed ? They said it was
it the ollico. "
"Then they said what was correct , " relied -
) lied Reed.
"Reuben Reed' " asked the official look-
"Kitlier misunderstanding him or from

"Yes ! yes ! \\hatofil \ * "
"What of it Well , you just come

Mr. Reed wa = a llttio alarmed , think-
ng maybe some of his anti-Sunday
school escapades liiitl been detected
"Oil , it must be a mistake , " ho said.
"No , taint ; Judge Wheeler bent me

any moio trouble. "
Thinking that Hie mislako would thus
be most tiiiel | < ly nnd easily rectilliul ,
Roland repaired to the court room , his
"Well , sir , we've waited long enough
for.-,011. I've a great mind lo line yon

Thoroughly excited. Kaed said : "Hut ,

Yon should have been here itn hour ago.
There , I'll hear nothing moro fiom yon ,
Call th first case , and do yon , sir , go to
your place and to your duties. "
When Roland recovered fiom his sur
prise lie found himself in a jury box.
After awhile he regained his wits and
mnnaccil to write a note to his manager
while listening lo the case some suit for
damages on account of a defective coun
try highway. All the morning ho sat
there , wondering how long the case
would last. It seemed interminable. At
recess he tnanaaud to got the oar of thu
court constable and explained matters
tojiiin. Meanwhile Reed had been taken
with the rest of the jury to dinner and
Manager Ilinc in great trepidation had
sought out the judge and explained mat

ana promised to arrange things some
how o lliat Roland could piny that night.
When the com t reassembled , the judge

Reed begced him not to mention it. and
