"It sccmt to mo that \vu nro going nt thi
Investigation wrong cnu to. Wo nro having
our policemen testify In tholr own boliuU be
fore wo Imvo heard tlio complaints agiilnsl
them. "
This was the remark of Mr. Ilartman nl
the IIro and police commissioners mvcstlga
lion ycsterdiy morning.
It looked very much thnt way. When the
commission uiot thorn were nt least flftv
witnesses present. After two or three ol
them had hecn examined tlio nollcc were
called In and occupied the tlmo until noon
telling what they know in their own behalf ,
This was kept up until the witnesses wlic
were summoned got tired and went uwny ,
leaving thn examination a decidedly jug'
handled nffnlr.
Tlio llrit witness was H. M. Mohr , a janltot
In the Hclinroa block on North Sixteenth
street , who was arrested on Aupust < ! , foi
cnlllim n policeman to catch a burglar who
was in the block.
Ho blow ii whistle for a policeman. A mar
wns In the closet. "I wont to him , " said the
Witness , ' 'nnd ho told tno to keep still. A
polipotnan , Murphy No. ! ? ' , catno In anr\nskeil
what I Was doing nnd threatened to nrros !
mo. lie took hold of iny arm nnd pinched
me. They did not rolaaso mo until nfter the
ladles liuil made an explanation In my behalf ,
Murphy told mo it was n line of * .V ) and thir
ty days In jail for blowlt.g a whistlo. I've
been here sixteen years uud was never abused
bofoi-o by a policeman. The odlcer lot the
man go who wns trying to get Into the win
dow. The policeman accused mo of being
full of beer. Murphy then went Into ti
woman's room and told her It was all in hoi
The Mayor As a matter of fact you were
not arrested. The ofllecr was only fooling.
Mr. Mohr I didn't think ho was fooling.
I was in dead earnest about It.
Mr. llartmnn said them was no man on
tlio regular force named Murphy. It must
have buen Murphy , the watchman at the
Webster street depot.
Councilman F , E. Halley was called in
rofoMnco to his knowledge about the facts
In the case of Mr. .lames Hodecs , who wag
arrested for dumping garbage while in the
employ of the park commissioners. Ho was
abused when arrested and thrown on the
floor of the Jail. Mr. Ltailoy said that Mr.
Hoilgcs had lived as his neighbor for Hftcon
years aud ImO known him as u reputable cit
Mr. Hodges was called. Ho told the facts After ho was arrested ho was
taken to the jail. Thu Jailor gave mo a push
and said :
"G d n you , got in tnoro. "
I did not want to give up my pnckctbook.
Ho shoved mo into the Jull nnd called mo n
* 'G ' d d d rat and a dimmed dead beat. "
The case was dismissed at the explanation
of the park commissioners.
Put Hnvey , the jailor who took charge of
Hodges , was called. Ho claimed that Judge
Uerku offered to allow Hodges to ro on big
own recognizance , but Hodges rofuscd to do
BO. Hodges resisted him when ho tried to
search him and he had to throw him on the
Hour nnd tuko his pockctbook from him.
The investigation practically ended heic
and the commissioners proceeded to taku up
In regular police court form the churgo ol
vagrancy against. Hilly Nestlchouso. All ol
the policemen who knew Nestlchouso were
put on the stand and required to say the little -
tlo pieces they have learned bv heart in n
Bcoro of attempts to convict Nestlchouso ol
vagrancy in the police court.
This occupied the time until noon , when
tbo board adjourned until 3 o'clock.
The mayor wants Councilman Kaspar to
nppoar before the commissioners and sub
stantiate the charges ho made in the council
meeting to the effect that bo had boon made
n speriul object of police espionage.
The police commissioners succeeded yes-
torduy afternoon In addintr several chapters
to the volume they are preparing for publi
cation entitled. "Investigations Made Rasy ,
or Every Policeman His Own Host Wit
ness. " An army of witnesses had been
summoned to give evidence in substantiation
of the charges made in tno newspapers
against certain members of the police forco.
Very few of those summoned nppcared to
give evidence , and so the police were given
another opportunity to speak in their own
behalf , and to prepare defenses to he used in
future emergencies.
Dump Olllcor Hrady got tangled up in his
little story about arresting two printers on
the charge of pounding u man. His only ev
idence against thorn was that one man were
a light colored suit and the other dark
clothes , and two men dressed in this style
ere seen on tlio dumpcnrly in the spring.
Charles Wotzol , a saloonkeeper on Thir
teenth street , came in and told how ho had
Ijeen swindled on a bogus check. Ho got a
chonco to got his uionoy bock , hut Chief
Senvoy refused to give up tbo check , nnd
also refused to explain why ho held it. Mr.
Wetzol got his money , however , and so ho
was satisfied.
Alex Green wns given n chance to deny ,
In advance of any charges , that ho hod over
made a mistake In his lltetlme as far as he
In the evening Duff Green came before the
board and entered a wholcsulo and general
denial of all charges published , or to be pub
lished. The men who have made statements
'and affidavits against thu ox-captnin Have not
yet appeared before the board , but Creon is
busy these days , and so was allowed to offer
Ills defense , that It mav bo ready when the
statements against him are made , If they
uvcr nro.
OT. J. Sheridan and W. It. Hunt appeared
before tbo commissioners and gave nvidcncc
concerning tholr arrest by Ofllcer Walker.
Mr. Sheridan is an attorney who was ar
rested on the charge of vagrancy while sit
ting in front of his boattiing house reading n
paper. Mr. Hunt is a young man who has
been In Omaha all his life and was looking
at a building which ho had rented for a
store when ha was arrested. Hoth men
Were discharged without u hearing.
A largo number of witnesses have been
f , subpoenaed to appear before the co-amis ,
loners thin morning at 0 o'clock. '
A Iturly Policeman Assault * a Wit-
iioHHln Presence of the CommUnion.
The police commissioners had an ocular
aomonstiatlon nt their meeting yesterday
of the hot houdedncss , to say thu least , of u
member of thn force.
During the examination of witnesses in
the jwlico examination Jesse Newman , a
coloiud policeman , mudo un assault upon Ed
Crowell , who was present OB u witness before -
fore thoboaul , Crowell and Newman hud
some conversation in the hull boforb enterIng -
Ing Urn room. Crowell then wont Into the
commissioners' room nnd was standing with
tils arms folded talking to Ulchard VVlido
when Newman approached him , called him u
liar and various foul mimes and struck ut
him."Sergeant , " crlod Crowoll to Sergeant
Moatyn , "this onicer is assaulting mo.11
With this Newman seized Crowoll by tun
thro'it ' and pushed him through the door and
started toward the jail with him , Crowoll
broke away and returned to the commission
ers' room. Newman followed and again soUcd
him by tlio throut , ami thu pair struggled
into tha h ill and ulinohod.
Sergeant Mostyn reached them and bus.
tied Newman into the chief's ofllco , but not
until he had made several passes .at Crow-
nil's faro.
The deliberations of the commissioners
were cut short by the disturbance. When
quiet was restored the oommUsonorn |
invited Ofllcer Newman to nppoar bo.
fore thorn nnd tell why ho
bud engaged In tno row , The
orator stated that Crowoll had called him n
vile name that he would not stand from any
man mid ho resented It. "If I Imd not had
my star on , " said the onlcor tupping hluisnll
on the breast , "I would have pounded bis
bead off , "
Mr. Newman was bowed out and tbo mat
ter dropped.
The score of spectators who witnessed the
assault wuro not called upon tor a statement
and Mr. Crowell wa not given u chunco to
Jo beard.
Jmljro DoanaOrnnts the South Omnlu
Injunction , t
While waiting for Uio judga to put In ni
appearance yesterday morning and dccld
the motor street railway injunction suit fo
South Omaha , Congressman Connell mv
General Cowin consumed half .in hour dls
cussing the wonderful changes of sontlmon
which have taken placet in a romnruftbl ,
short period of tlmo.
"Less than six months aero , " laid Mr. Con
neil , " , vo were engaged right bore In a bltte
fight to provo that electricity as a motlv
power was practicable , nnd the iitrcot rail
way company , which opposed us , Is to-da ;
stringing miles of what it then designated n
unsightly poles nnd dangerous wires , with i
view to ultimately supplanting all Us hors
cars with motor trains. "
' Yes , " replied Cowin , "wo wcro runnlni
all over this country searching for affidavit
to convince our court that the application o
electricity as n moans of operating strco
cars was not only successful six months ago
but would take tlio plnca of ovcrythini
olsc. "
After the gas controversy had been sot
tied , .ludgo Donno proceeded to dispose of th
street car case. His ruling was quite length ;
nnd touched upon questions raised m noarl'
all the contests that have occurred withn
the past seven or eight months between tbos
two corporations. The facts huvn hereto
fore beun published in these columns , nnt
nro already familiar to everyone Interested
The motor company xvas granted an uijunc
tlon mainly on the ground that Its prior rlgh
to possession of tho' streets In South Oinulu
had not been successfully disputed. Whlli
the street railway company hni
a counter application for an in
junction , nnd based Its claim :
upon the result of an olcction granting 1
franchises , tlio court held this to bo of m
consequence. Thnt olcction , he said , extended
tended these privileges' simply to the cabli
tramway company , and wns not bold unti
after this company had boon consolidate !
with the horse car comnany , consequent ! ;
the Omaha street railway coiporation is not
entitled to the franchise. On the otho :
band , the motor people had securoi
n permit from the board of publli
works to occupy nnd lay thali
tracks on Twenty-fourth street to the soutl
line of tliis city , and by so doing noi , onlj
manifested n good , but n most sincere intcn
lion of going through South Omaha on the
sutno street. The company was ordered ti
put up n bond of $10,000 as an evidence o
good faith and Its purpose to carry on tin
extensions and improvements proposed.
Now business was light in thu dlstrlc
court yesterdayafternoon.
James Callahan averred In his pctltioi
that Edward Caisldy hud accepted the post
tlou of stakeholder in u horse race , nnd hut
then dropped out of sight with thu $200 stain
money , of which $100 wi\s deposited by Cal
luhnn , who wants a Judgment in that amouu

Public Works.
The worlc of paving the streets ordered
done this year , and for which contracts have
been let , is progressing- slowly , owing to
the numerous r.ilns during the two
months. Juno nnd July are generally dry
months in this section , but this year they
were the opposite Notwithstanding the
fact that the work is backward , Major Hal-
corn ho is of the opinion that all the work
will bo done before the season closes , pro
viding the weather during the next two
months is favorable.
The work that is farthest behind is the
contract- J. H. Smith & Co. , on Cauitol
avenue and on Nineteenth street , to b3 paved
with cypress block on concrete. It is under
stood that the block nas not yet boon or
dered for the work. The people upon these
are growinir very imnatient at the dulay.
Permission bus been granted tlie Omaha
Street railway company bv the board of
public works to lay an additional street car
track ou Sixteenth street from the north
Hue of Ciss to the north line of Webster ,
and to extend its line on Sixteenth fromCaas
to Davenport.
Major Ualcombo has ordered Contractor
Pritchett to replace the sidewalks torn up by
him on Wnolworth avenue at the corner of
Twenty-eighth street. Contractors in the
past have been in the habit of tearing up
walks to giado streets and leaving them , but
the major s.iys sucli work must cease.

This week will positively close out the balance of our summer suits. Fall goods arc coming in
and room must be made for them. We have a few extra fine light weight suits for dress
and business wear which we are ready to sacrifice * They arc made 'of the choicest fancy
worsteds and gotten up in A No. i style. No custom garment can beat them. They are suits
for which merchant tailors would charge from $40 to $50. We have reduced them to less
than the material in them is worth. It will be money in your pocket if you will avail your
self of this opportunity. These reductions hold good also in our boys' department. We are
offering a lot of extremely fine boys' and children's * suits at prices you could not buy
them a month ago for double the money.
In our furnishing department we have every day one thing or the other to close out. To
day its a little line of underwear , tomorrow a small lot of flannel shirts , of which the sizes
are broken , etc. On all such goods we make prices which will tempt you into buying
whether you need the goods or not.
"Wo call particular attention in this department to several lots of Night Shirts which \vo arc olVering extremely
ow. Ono lot very good Shirts , plain and also fancy fronts and collars , nt 50c. Another very fine Shirt , with
