nti'S Intprc lliif ( Clmptcr on
The police had n surprise yesterday mornIng -
Ing when , Paddy Ocrln , alias Smittv alias
Morgan , a well known crook and burglar
who has been nn Inmate of the city Jail slnco
March 4 , expressed n desire to bo put to
work with the other prisoners cleaning out
the Jail Never before within the memory
of the oldest copper had n crook of Paddy's
caliber Invited any hotioat physical exer
tions , nnd with visions of the millennium
dancinif before his eyes the turnkey at once
granted his rcciucst and set him to scrubb
ing the lloor in front of the Jailer's cage.
Hut Pady's laudable tiesiro to bo of serv
ice to the city , which was supplying him
with meals and a place to sleep , was not en
tirely disinterested , ns soon appeared. He
scrubbed away with commendable zeal until
the water in his bucket became burdened
with the accumulated washings from the
dirty lloor and then tlio Janitor started
to empty the bucket and replenish It with
clean water. "Never mind. I'll empty H , "
said Paddy , and without waiting for an an
swer ho lifted the bucket and started for
the door. Once on the outside bo dropped
the bucket like a hot potato , and bareheaded
and In his shirt sleeves ho sprinted toward
the Sarpy county line with an alacrity
which rendered all attempts at pursuit futile.
Hereafter the crook who expresses a desire
to earn his feed will bo regarded with n
largo and viligant suspicion.
Paddy Ocrln was a member of a gang of
thieves who are well known to the police of
nearly all the western cities , and although
he was not wanted hero for anything in par
ticular was considered n peed man to have
under lock and key. Ho arrived in this city
a ivcek ago last Saturday after an absence
of several years , much nf which had been
spent behind prison bars. / bout 2 o'clock
the next morning he accosted Olllcer Kouser
nt Twelfth and Douglas streets and asked
when the next car would pass for Council
( iave Illinnelf Awny.
Detective Savage happened to bo standing
near at tlio time industriously endeavoring
to recollect where ho had seen the man before -
fore , when Paddv anxiously Inquired what
had become of "Sober" Hums. Hums is the
man who held up a man on the Douglas
street bridge seven years ago and is still
doing time for the offense at Fort Madison
penitentiary. Gerin had no sooner men
tioned Hums' name than ho was recognized
by the detective , who took him to the police
station- and locked him up as a suspicious
character. From certain Indications the
ofllccr shrewdly surmised that CJcrin hau
been implicated , in a recent robbery some
where and was in Omaha for tlio purpose of
getting rid of the proceeds. This suspicion
was continued by a note which had been
accidentally dropped by tno prisoner and
was found by Captain Mostyn. It was ad
dressed to "Irish Mike , " a well known thief ,
who is now supposed to bo located at Council
Bluffs , and was as follows :
Mike- I came over hero lust nl''hl ' and got
pinched. That was a funny joint and I can't
Kiddle. 1 have got It yet and will stulV It at
I . t * . Veil hud better get Lawyer Dally to
come over ami get me out. PAIIIIV.
The phraseology would be enigmatical to
some people , but to experienced eyes It was
plain that the writer meant to convey the
fact that ho had found himself unable to
dispose of the swag in Omaha and woult'
send It to Kansas City , and that the proba
bilities wcro that thu rest of the gang were
not far off. The police Immediately set to
work to entrap tlio rest of the gang and
their plans would probably have succeeded
had it not been for Paddy's untimely de
Tipped OIV the flung.
A copy of ti'io note was tc.-"ii ; by Captain
Mostyn and tlrt ) original sent on to its desti
nation accompanied by a tip to the Council
Hluffs police. A few days after Sergeant
Onnsby detected Gerin in the act of passing
n letter to a vagrant named Thompson , who
occupied the adjoining cell. Thompson had
been lined $1 and costs that morning and
expected a friend down to pay his line , when
ho would bo released. Gorin had taken
advantage of this opportunity to communi
cate with his friends , and Onnsby said
nothing at the time but waited until Thomp
son was released , when ho followed him out
nnd succeeded in scaring him Into giving up
the letter. It , as the sergeant anticipated ,
developed the whereabout' } of another of
( Serin's pals , and ono who was very much
wanted in n dozen places. The letter was
addressed to Mr. Edward Porter , Paclllc
house , Council Hluffs. and warned the Iowa
contingent of tlio gang as follows :
Kd.- Tell Jim to stay away from the post-
nfllcc , and you had better plat for a few days.
1 could not peddle hens. Sergeant Onnsby Is
dead on to you mugs am ) you had better steer
the push to tit , .loo or Atehlson. 1 will have to
sorvu my tlmu out hero In older to go back
and get the hoops. 1 know a funco 1n Kansas
City that is looking for Just that kind of j-tuir.
Yon had hotter send Maria to riloux City. Do
not write here any moio. John Smith is my
monlca. llu careful , for the llawkshaws on
this sldo are making It sort of warm for us.
That the crook was possessed of moro than
ordinary acumen was shown by the fact that
ho had evidently tumbled to the game of the
police and wnrncM " .lim , " who. was probably
Irish Mike , not to go to tlio postofllco where ,
as a matter of fact , the Council Hluffs police
were waiting to nab him ns soon as ho called
for Gerln's llrst letter. "Hoops , " in the
thieves vernacular , stands for diamond
rings , and showed that the Job which the
gang had last performed had netted a moro
or less valuable lot of Jewelry.
Sergeant Onnsby nt once started for
Council Bluffs to Interview Porter and
"Mavla , " and with a well tlcmicd Idea of the
Identity of the former. Ho arrived to Hnd
that his birds had fiowii , Tiiuy had been at
tno Metropolitan hotel for some days but
had apparently taken the alarm and loft
town on the preceding evening. A couple of
hours investigation confirmed the idea of
the olllcer that Porter was none other than
Charley Baxter , a notorious crook who
under a dozen ulisses lias purpolratod about
ns mnny robberies In the west During the
past ten years as any man living.
Baxter's llrst experience with the Omaha
police was about seven years ago , when tie
Lvrglarl/cd n residence in the itorth part of
the city , getting away with about $ r > oo worth
of Jewelry and clothing. Sergeant Onnsby ,
who was then a detective , was. detailed on
the case and soon after located his man and
arrested him with the help of Captain Mos-
tyn. Haxter was sent over the road and
served his term without effecting any im-
pro\emcnt in his habits. Ho had not long
( icon at liberty when ho came to South
Omaha and stole sonm Jewelry and was shot
in the leg by Captain Paddy MeMahoii
while attempting to escape. To the South
Omaha police ho passed by the name of
Casoj , and as there was not sufttdcnt evi
dence against him to convict ho got nw.ay
nf tcr serving n short sentence for vagrancy
Haxter then went to St. Ixnils. where
under thu name of mattery ho Joined n gang
of burglars , of which Irish Mlko.was also a
member. The thugs hail things their own
way for a time , but at length the police got
UK-HI dead to rights and the whole ganu
with the exception of Irish Mlko wcru Jailed
with seven Indictments for burglary hanging

Hut crooks of their ability are not usuall.v
without some pull on political strings , and
on the same night that the gang v uro ar
rested Mike went to the rosideiien of the
iudgn , accompanied by a well known St.
Jxi'Jts spotting man , who had u peed deal to
don ilh disposing of the vote in n certain
ward. Mlko , with an address worthy of a
better cause , succeeded In qualifying as
bondsman to the ( .utisfactiou of the Judge
nd the whole gang were released on his
bond , which , of coursn , was found to bo
worthless lifter the crooks hud made iroot

lost no time In carrying his plans Into effect
nnd breaking Jail. Ho was wonderfully suc
cessful In his attempt , ami , although the
moat careful search was made , the ofllecr
wits compelled to K ° bnck to St. Ixmis with
out his prisoner. That was the last heard
of the darinc tlii"f until ho was tracked to
Council liluffs the other day by Sergeant
I'mlily' * Hccoril.
Ocrln , the man who escaped froin'tho city
Jail is a scarcely lessD notorious thief
than his pal. Ho was first known to
the local police about six years nso when ,
In conjunction with 1'oko Sullivan , Jim
U'oodard and others , ho robbed astoCo at
Sixteenth and Hurt streets of over JMUO
worth of cloaks. The robbery was carefully
planned and adroitly executed. The thieves
had rented roams adjoining the prospective
crib some time before and tlio stolen goods
were removed to tills room and secreted for
u day or two , after which they were shipped
to Ottutinvii , la.
In the meantime the police had struck a
clew to tlio perpetrators of the robbery , and
Captain Mostyn , with a posse of ofllccrs ,
searched the rooms wliato the goods had
been bidden. It was too late , however , us
the swag was already on the way to Jowa.
\Vhllo tlio search was going on Captain
Mostyn noticed Mrs. U'oodard , who had been
left behind to avert suspicion , throw a bus
tle out of the window. The olllcer picked it
up , anil on ripping it open found diamonds
valued at $ MO which haa been secreted in
tlio lining ,
Tlio burglars were afterwards caught in
Council HltilTs , pleaded guilty and were sen
tenced to four years npleco in tlio peniten
tiary. Ccrin went to Illinois after bis time
was up and spent most of the intervening
tune In .Toilet where no was committed for

I'liiim Tor the Exposition.
The secretary then read the contract en
tered into between the association and the
Coliseum people relative to the renting of
that building tor an exposition , uftd It was
The question of the date for holding the
exposition was then taken up ahd thor
oughly discussed. The time dually llxcd
upon was from May 2:2 : to Juno 3. The date
was llxcd earlier than last year for the pur
pose of avoiding the hot weather that kept
a good many away from the last exposition.
The secretary was instructed to corros [ > end
with the state llsh commissioners relative to
making an exhibit of llsh from the state
hatcheries. The president stated that ho
believed that such an exhibit would bo a
The president then announced that he
would like to have the following committees
to assist in the work of preparing for and
managing the exposition : On building , on
exhibits and on transportation.
The committees proposed by the president
wcro approved , and he was instructed to up-
point them. Mr. Bryan stated that the Lin
coln members , being so far away , would pre
fer not to bo appointed on any of the com
mittees , but would bo satisfied with any ac
tion that might bo taken by the Omaha
A resolution was then passed fixing the
price of admission the same as last year ,
that is , at 23 cents. The question of admit
ting the children free was discussed at
length and loft with .the president to settle.
Some Of the members who had exhibits at
the last exhibition that were more or less
damaged by the children were not , very en
thusiastic over the subject of a children's
day. It was remarked that in Chicago the
children arc given a day at the expositions ,
provided the touchers agree to bo present
and help keep them in order.
Questions of Association I'.thlcs.
President Page said that there was one
point that ho would like to bring up and have
the members carefully consider , with n view
to acting upon it nt the next annual meeting
if they-should think best. Ho said that ho
had thought for some time that the dues of
members should bo based on a sliding scale ,
so that the linn doing a business of $100,000
or moro per year would bo required to pay
moro than the manufacturer doing a busi
ness of only iUOO per vear. At the present
time all members pay the same , that Is , J2
Secretary Holmes stated that a few days
previous to the time of holding the last e'x-
positinn a few firms joined the association
and then , after making an exhibit , dropped
out again. This was regarded as unfair to
the old members who stayed in and paid
dues the year through. To avoid its recur
rence he had drawn tip a blank contract re
quiring the now members who come in at
the time of the exposition to remain In the
association for one year. The schenio was
It was stated that the government Is em
ploying Indian boys at the Genoa school to
make harness that is put on the market and
sold below the cost of production , thus in
juring the harness making Industry of the
state. The secretary was instructed to look
into the matter and ascertain If there was
any remedy for the evil.
As the Lincoln members were anxious to
return on the afternoon' train the meeting
was adjourned. At the conclusion President
Page remarked that ho was glad to sio so
many Lincoln manufacturers present and
that ho hoped they would all make exhibits
of their goods at the coming exposition.

yesterday's booking , many may bo disap
pointed In Securing seats. Kvery competent
critic of the eastern press has lauded both
comedy and comedian , and Mr. Sothern him
self declares ins abilities have never had
liner opportunity for exercise. A rare treat
is certainly in store for all attending the
Uoyd tonight and tomorrow. The usual
Saturday matinee will bo given , and the
schoolma'ms of the city may Hnd an added

comedy , so universally praised , is the work
of a lady who is of their own profession.

Needless to praise Ucnman Thompson's
great play at this time of day , n play
destined to last as long ns goodness of heart ,
true nobility and sterling manhood com

will be next week's attraction at the Farnam.
Tills play is 0110 of the best of its class , and
one of the few dramas that combine action
with elaborate mechanical effects without
at the same time sacrificing all literary
merit. The characters are mostly rallro.nl
people and the incidents are gathered from
their everyday life.

so awfully turned by his looking
glass as he stood before it one
Sunday , arrayed in liis last new
"fix-up , " that he imagined all the
prettiest girls in the city could
not resist his attractions. After
conning himself over to his
heart's satisfaction , he gave ex
pression to the sublime conclu
sion " they're after me. " We
don't say the burglar when he
steals Johann I loff's wasn't after
" Old Bourbon , " or " Sour Mash , "
or "Canada.Club , " or something
of that sort , , or he might have
had some fraternal whim of treat
ing the " copi" but I would rather
cultivate the acquaintance of an
"out and out" burglar of whose
objects one lias no " po. ible
shadow of doubt whatever , " than
of the unscrupulous charlatans
who are daily imposing upon the
public by the sale of their spu
rious imitations. No malt ex
tract is genuine but Johann 1 loff's.
To guard agajnstsuch imposition
see that th.q signature of "Johann
