Season is Fairly Under DUNDEE
If you have not seen Dundee Place since streets have been graded and houses built , go and look it
over , especially if you are contemplating buying or building a home ,
And its conditions and surroundings make it a most desirable place to live.
There are no cheap or poor buildings. Every house must cost at least $2,500. We sell on easy
terms and if you desire we will contract to build you a house of your own planning. We can have it
built cheaper than you can. Why ? Because our contractors buy in large quantities , and can therefore
make better terms. We give you the benefit of this advantage.
Do not buy or build without first seeing what we have. Youcan own your own home in five years for a very little more
than you would pay for rent , and at the same time have the advantage of the increase in value , If you are not satisfied af
ter seeing this property you arefunder no obligations to buy. We will show you the property at anytime yon may make
an appointment with us. Price of ground $25 per front foot , or $ I,25O , per lot. No less than lOOfeet frontage sold.

know of any games going on now , but
had no doubt there wore some in progress.
When ou special duty , looking into tlio sa
loon business , policemen wnro instructed to
buy drinks at all places they could get in if
possible. This was to sco If the law was being -
ing obeyed. This was on t ho Sunday par
ticularly. They were instructed to do this
by u superior ofllcor. If they spend any
money in this work they are reimbursed by
the chief. "Wo always wear our stars. "
said ho , "but do not display thorn. Wo do
not wear ouruniforms when doing such duty.
Wo don't make any arrests then. Wo take
the names of the offenders. I did not repre
sent that my wife was slcn when I got a
drink at Hajooks , 1333 South Thirteenth
street. I simply asked for a drink and got
it. There was a lot of Bohemians there
drinking beor. This was on Sunday. Wo
watch drug stores just the same.
I got drinks the Sunday I
was on- special duty at Rothcry's saloon ,
Hanson & Jensen's , 503 North Fourteenth
street , at Hajeck's und at 113 South Tench
street. Uothory was acquitted , tlio other
cases are pending , I think. I spunt $1.70 that
day , I make an arrest on an nvorngo of one
in every four or flvo days , mostly for drunk
enness and vagr.mcy.
"How do you tell a vagrant ? "
"By questioning and watching him. Wo
don't often go wrong on those fellows their
actions generally give them away. "
"What is a vagrant ? "
"A follow who sleeps In box-cars , hallways
and that sort of it thing. "
"What Is a suspicious character ? "
"A man who is soon loitering around bunt-
ness houses , and watching people , and ono
who can give no good explanation of his busi
ness or Identity. "
The examination was adjourned to 2
Dotcctivo Vaughn , of the police depart
ment , was the Ilrst witness called by the
police investigating committee in the after
noon. Ho defined Ills duties as bolug the
detection of confidence men iti particular ,
and the various violators of the law In general -
oral , Ho did all h's ' special work under the
direction of bis chief. Ho expreMca n will-
ingncss to furnish the committee- any
information in his power , but
declined to answer any questions
that would Interfere with his
work as a dctoctivo or. , make public any of
the plans which ho Imd'ln ' mind.
Tlio committee did not seem disposed to
press an examination tf Mr. Vaughn's career
and dismissed him. < >
V. M. Ellis of th6 < tnountcd police , was
called by the committee. ' The witness tostl-
lled that bo bad done snino special work dis
guised as a private citizen , espe
cially In looking out for viola
tors of the liquor law , Ho
reported eight cases oT saloonkeepers selling
liquor between inlarilglit and 4 a. m. Ho
claimed that ho had not resorted to any subterfuge -
torfugo to obtain drltiks in the saloons dur
ing the hours prohibit ( id , but wont into the
saloons and asked f or sv drink. If ho got it
ho inado a note of the /act and reported it to
the polico. If ho was refused a drink ho loft
without moro ado.
Ellis' side partnor.OW. H. Sheep , of the
mounted police , was then called.
While Ofllcor Snoop was on the stand Mr.
Hartman , of the lire and police commission ,
stated the position of the commission on the
investigation. Ho said the comiulwlon was
willing and ready to assist the committee
and the council In Investigating charges
against any member of the police force or
any ofllcial under the direction of tbo fire
and police commission , and if any wrong was
shown against any such ofiicer the commis
sion would certainly dismiss him. As to the
matter of sending ofllcors on special duty ,
disguised as private citizens , Mr. Hartinuu
hold that that was a branch of tlio police
work that could not be dispensed with. The
cnlof has a rlghtto do It. "You can't catch
a thief by announcing your coming and in
tentions by a parade of blue cloth and brass
buttons. If wo can't catch violators of the
law in policemen's uniforms wo must go
after them disguised us private citizens. "
A general consultation followed between
the members of the committee uud the com
mission , during which U was agreed that u
3ertaln other matter , upon which the two
jodios had hold some discussion , should not.

question by Mr. Davis , Mr. Sheep admitted
that ho had seen beer sold in the sporting

Schmidt was thought to be making money.
Some months ago , however , ho became
enamored of a cypriun in a house of 111-shupo

her nn expensive luxury , so much so that his
