The police think they have a full-fledged
pyromanlac In Jail.
For several weeks the fire department has
been kept busy running to fires In the loaded
hay cars on the Elkhorn tracks north of
Nicholas street. There have been some
twenty alarms from that locality and ten
cars of hay have been totally destroyed. The
Nebraska Hay company has lost three cars ;
A. O. Knapp , three ; Mr. Butler , two ; Mr.
Twamley , one , and the Omaha Bridge and
Terminal company , two.
Yesterday morning at about 9 o'clock one of
the assistant fire chiefs drove past the office of
the Nebraska Hey company an3 the clerk
In the office called out and asked If the de
partment was coming down In order
to keep up Its record. The words had hardly
been spoken when flames shot up from a caret
ot hay belonging to the Omaha Bridge and
Terminal company that was standing on the
track near by. Prompt action save ! the
car from being destroyed.
One of the clerks In the office of the Omaha
Bridge and Terminal company had seen a
man coming from behind the car Just before
the fire was discovered mil so notified Mr.
Glbbs of the Nebraska Hay company. Glblis
ran to the car and met Jack Wills , a black
smith , coming from the burning car. Glbbs
seized the min and paid , "I want you. " Will
offereJ no resistance and was turned over to
the police. He was charged with being a
suspicious character and will be held pend
Ing an Investigation of the case.
Since the arrest a number of men employei
by the different hay firms say that they have
seen Wills hanging around the hay car ;
almost dally , and that his presence In tin
vicinity Is usually followed by a fire In tin
hay. _ - _ _ _ _ _ _

C. N. Warner and Fay Thomas bad ono o
those old time lovers' quarrels Monday night
It attracted the attention of the police an
at one stage In Its progress promised a Jo
for the coroner.
Warner Is a clerk In the employ of an Eas
Omaha factory and Fay Is Just a slmpl
maiden of 30 years , short on beauty and Ion
on love. She hns two fellows and It cam
to a showdown as to whether Warne
or his rlvaU was to be given a per
mansnt monopoly of her affections. She an
Warner had been out for a good time an
had returned about midnight to the girl's
room at a Dodge street hotel. Fay had been
gloriously entertained ana so expressed her-
nelf and then Warner took his cue and
played high from a long hand. He de
manded that the other fellow bo tossed off at
once. Fay demurred. Warner was de
termined to bring matters to a focus. If
Fay would not cleave to him alone he would
not bo a sister to her even , but would go
out and puncture his anatomy with a few
holes , caliber 38. Fay wasn't ready to give
up her other fellow and Warner took her to
his bosom , pressed a few warm kisses on her
marble brow and bade her a tearful farewell
and passed out Into the night. Fay sat down
on His foot of the bed and waited for the
pistol shots. They came , two of them.
Then the girl let out a collection of hysterical
yells that roused the neighborhood and
brcught the police.
Sergeant Whalen and Officer Monroe hur
ried In the hotel and found the girl. Slit
told her story and bepged the police to gel
bcr lover's body that she might weep over
It. Th : officers found Warner very much
allvo and he and Fay were given apartments
In the city Jail. _ _

At least two merchants In Omaha paid
tribute to the smoothness of a bogus check
fiend Monday evening.
About C o'clock In the afternoon a well
dressed young man called at Stanfield's bar
ber supply bouse on Dodge , street and ex
pressed a desire to Invest In a razor. He
mads the selection of a $3 article and pre
sented In payment a check on the American
National bank for $9.25 , payable to H.
Houser and purporting to bo signed by the
same man. It was after banking hours anil
Mr. Stanfield made some Inquiries as to Jhe
Identity ot ths purchaser. The man said
that his name was Houser , that ho was an
attorney In the New York Life building , that
lie had been busy In Justice Smith's court
all the afternoon and had neglected to draw
money from the bank earlier In the day. He
bad made the check for $ 'J.25 , because he
needed $6 for another purpose and would
have car fare left. , Mr. Stanfield accepted
the check and gave his own In change for
Mr. Houser tben decided that as matters
were coming pretty easy ho would try the
game on a little larger scale. He went Into
the- Glebe Clothing store and bought light
undenyear to the value of $2 and nave In
payment a check for $15. This was ac
cepted , after the lawyer story had been told
\vlta slight variations and Mr. Houser was
given $13 In good money as change. Both ,
checks were thrown out by the bank this
morning and the police are looking for Mr. .
HousPr. Mr. Stapfleld has stopped payment
on his check at the bank and hopes to get
out of the deal with only the loss of the

Asa K , LeonoTd Is not a brilliant success

victing the men who were suspected ot
operating gambling resorts. After some time
Billy Ebcrtole was arrested on the complaint
of Leonard , charged with running a crap
Tim case was called last week , but Leon
ard's testimony was not ot the convincing
kind and Judge Berka gave the state until
yesterday to get additional evidence. Mr.
Leonard was on band with three young men ,
who were supposed to be ready to swear that
they had seen the crap game In full blast
at Eberscle's place , but when the boys went
on the stand they swore that they bad never
played In the place , bad never sen any one
play tbcro and did not know Leonard from a
crow. Assistant County Attorney Day gave
up In disgust and the case was dismissed on
his motion. _ _ _ _ _ _

To the man looking for quick returns on the
money he Invests , this Is the region. With
equal facility cotton , corn , oats , peas , pota
toes and fruits of all kinds can be success
fully grown and marketed. Garden farming
Is easy and profitable and railroads bring the
great and paying markets of the east , west
and south to your doors. Dairy farming and
poultry raising ore equally profitable ventures
for those who embark In that branch of In
dustry. The seeker after health here finds
an atmosphere of unquestioned physical and
moral purity. A temperature ranging from
30 to 90 degrees the year round. The cer
tainty of never being Icebound or snow-Im
prisoned. Beautiful drives along roads lined
the magnolia and laurel , or along hillsides
green with the health growing pines.
Horticulture and orcharding have risen Into
prominence In the past few years , the suc
cess of these engaged In these Industries at
tracting Increased attention. New orchards
are being planted and nursery men report an
unprecedented demand for fruit treesi.
The possibilities of agriculture In the Or-
chaid Homes region cannot bo easily exag
gerated. For example , It Is perfectly practl
cable to plant a crop ot potatoes In December
or January , harvest the crop In May , plant
corn on the same ground , followed by pota
toes In August to bo harvested In October ,
leaving the so'l ' free for cabbages until Janu
ary again. The fall crop of potatoes , by the
way , Is Invariably superior In quality to that
of rprlng. The early varieties of sweet corn
can be grown In perpetual succession ami
marketed from May to October Inclusive. The

Within the last few days nearly $30,000 o
judgments have been secured against th
county of Douglas by purchasers of the pee
farm lots.
Hardly a meeting of the Board of County
Commissioners for some weeks past has been
held at which additional Douglas county pee
farm claims have not been filed. Some o
the claims , It is said , ate barred by th
statute of limitation. It will be known In
short time Just what the amount of the In
debtcjness Is , as the county clerk has re
celvcd Instructions from the commissioners t
make a report upon the sums due. In th
meantime the holders of claims upon wlilc
suit has been brought have been rapidly re
duclng them to Judgments. In each case i
stipulation was entered at the time of th
appeal of the Kellar case to the suprem
court permitting tbe various cases to abid
the outcome of this suit , which was made th
teat. The judgments taken In the last fe\
days are the result of these stipulations an
are In favor of M. J. Goad , $5.003.88 ; J
Whalen , $ G45.32 ; M. M. Coad , $22,712.73 , an
L. B. Wright , $844.
It Is still an open question with the holder
of Judgments whether or not to try the el
feet of a mandamus suit to compel an addl
tlonal levy for the purpose of liquidating th
The levy made for this purpose enl
amounts to $60,000 , which will wive out but
portion of the sums due , and while eac

will draw Interest , It Is given out that th
holders of Hens would prefer their money t
having only a Judgment.
The county commissioners maintain that I

county levy up to the limit allowed by law ,
they did all that could be required. They

Qucitlon of Who Will Pay the Itllli ot the
Uuiird U In Doubt.
Mrs. Ish Is causing ] no end of trouble and
worry to the court house officials. Her
dally trips for a constitutional are taken
under the vigilant eye of Moses Steerman ,
who has been detailed for this work by the
sheriff. Thus far Steerman has had to ad
vance every penny for the street car rides.
He will present his bill to the commissioners.
What will become of It Is a matter of
conjecture. While none of the commissioners
have any objection , BO far as heard ,
to remunerating Steerman for the duty
ho has been detailed to perform ,
some complaints have been heard
concerning Judge Scott's connection with the
affair and statements made by him recently
that he was running the court house and that
ho Is above the county commissioners , will
not tend to quiet the affair.
Steerman says that he Is losing no sleep ,
as Mrs. Ish has promised to have her father
pay him.
The peremptory order of Judge Srott as to
the meth'od In which Mrs. Ish must exorcise
was made without consulting eltber the
sheriff , whose prisoner Mrs. Uu Is , or the
county commissioners.

'Great Yield ot Onli.
Yesterday W. I. Klerttead drove out
to his Douglas county farm , and upon 'his
return ho brought with him a sample of
oats from' his forty-acre field. In this field
the grain stands five feet high on the average ,
the heads measuring from eighteen to twenty-
four Inches. Mr , Klc'rstend states that the
oats will c-Kstly yield 120 bushels to the acre.
They will be ready to cut the last of thla
week. lu many ot the fields. Mr. Klcrstead
says , that the farmers have 'finished cutting
their small grain and that the yield will be
simply enormous. Regarding rain , ho says
that It Is not needed aR tbe ground IB very
moist. Farmers now need dry , hot weather ,
and plenty of It , to mature the corn crop.

by everybody connected with the company ,
the appeal which Mr. Snow prayoJ for being
entirely formal and of right. "Before sale
of the property Is consummated , " Bald Mr.
Thurtton , "undoubtedly similar decrees will
be askeJ for from courts In whose Jurisdic
tions the property lies. This will take
some time. Then , again , the reorganization
committee will have to get together and

upon some common basis. This done , a
Company will have to be tormca for the pur

pany will come Into court exactly on the
same lines as represented by the American

paid before the new company can succeed

The equalization of I'ates on the Union
Pacific to certain points In Montana and
Idaho , effective today , will occasion nn ad
justment of rates on certain commodities to
Utah common points. Salt Lake people , who
but a very short time ago were content to
accept all the good things which the Utah
reduction brought about , are now crying
"wolf" again and they see In the reduction
of six weeks ago the mailed hand of the
Union Pacific aiming a blow at their Infant
Industries. At least that Is what Salt Lake's
newspapers say.
At Union Pacific headquarters they say 1
Is preposterous to suppose that the "Over
land" will benefit one community at the
expense of another , but on the contrary al
parts of Its line must benefit equally.
One thing Is evident , the Union Pacific Is
determined to Increase its local business I
possible , realizing that herein Is found the
greatest revenue for the company.
"Should the Pennsylvania lines refuse to
handle a single pound of through freight on
Its line consigned at Its terminals
to other lines , Its local business
would prove of sufllclent Importance to
pay all fixed charges and still retain ai
ample sum In the treasury , " remarked i
Union Pacific official. * 'It ' ihas been some ,
what of a policy to sacrifice local for througli
business , but since the segregation of so
many Important branches the manageinen
realizes the necessity of building up Its own
territory , and to this end rates are being
reduced and additional fast train service pu
on. "
The movement of westbound freight con
tlnues enormously heavy , In marked con
trast with castbound traffic , and recent re
ports for June show a marked Increase ovei
the corresponding period of last year. Oill
clals , however , look for a good eastbound
business during the early fall , Indication
pointing to the belief that 1835 will prov

acting his usual business. He spent last
evening at home and retired In good spirits ,
but at 2 a. m. complained of violent pains In
the stomach , supposedly Incident to Indiges

summoned applied remedies which seemed to
afford relief. Symptoms of congestion and
hemorrhages followed. At 4 n. in. Tonne

fifteen minutes later he was dead. When he
was In New York five years ago Towne had

As usual the return portions of Christian
Endeavor tickets arc demoralizing the east
ern market and a meeting has been called
In Chicago of railroad officials to talk over
the situation , and If necessary reduce the
one way rates to offset the rates made on
these returning portions by the brokers Into
whose hands they gravitate as If oiled.
"This reduced ticket business Is one of
the hardest problems with which the passen
ger agent has to contend , " said General Pas
senger Agent Francis. "If all roads would
simply say to Grand Army men , Christian
Endeavorers , Baptist Young People , Knights
Templar and other big bodies , pay full fare
on the railroads , the brokerage business would
be knocked higher than Gilroy's kite. But
many roads Insist on reduced rates and con
sequently business la demoralized. ,
"The Joint agent In Denver for the National
Educational association prevented a demorali
zation of easlbound rates by rigidly Insist
ing on all conditions under which tickets
were granted. The Joint agent Idea la very
old In the railroad world , having been In
existence as long back , as the old Colorado
pool. It may be a little cumbersome , but It
certainly prevents rates from going to smash.
"So far I have not heard of the Denver
market being demoralized on account of the
returning portions of these tickets being
manipulated by scalpers. "

no use getting a superintendent of school

Action of n Mnjorlty of Members In the

A. Order.
The prospect that Superintendent of Schools
Marble may be turned down by the action of
the radical American Protective association
element In the Board of Education Is a sur
prise to most of the citizens who arc Inter
ested In the schools. Dr. Marble came to
Onialm ono year ago , backed with a national
reputation as an educator and the most flat
tering recomendations from the leading edu
cational men of the United States. So con
vincing were these recommendations that he
was elected almost Immediately. Ten out
of fourteen votes were cast In his favor , those
who voted against him basing their action
on the plea that the election of a superin
tendent was too Important a matter to be so
hastily disposed of and that Its 11 mil con
sideration should be postponed until another
Dr. Marble was first considered as a suc
cessor to Mr. Fltzpatrlck at the suggestion
of Mr. Fltzpatrlck himself. Fltzpatrlck
wrote to Dr. Marble , Informing him that he
was about to retire from the Omaha schools
and asking If he would be a candidate for
the position. Dr. Marble replied In the
.affirmative nnd was then requested to come
to Omaha , which he did. Ho was met by
Colonel Akin , Clinton N. Powell and A. P
Tukey of the Board of Education and they
vero joined nt the hotel by Thomas ,
lurgess and Babcock. During the next
hree or four days nearly every member ol
he board was Introduced to Dr. Marble nnd
11 were convinced that ho was the man
or whom they were looking. He was recom
mended In the most flattering terms by
VIcholas Murray Butler , president of the
National Educational association ; John W.
Cook , principal of the State Normal school
f Illinois ; Superintendent of Schools Max-
veil of Brooklyn ; William T. Harris , com-
nlssloner of education for the United States
government , and various other men of equal
landing. Added to this , he was most
varmly supported by Senator John M.
'hurston , who had formerly been one of Dr.
larble's pupils , and by the mayor and
mmerous prominent citizens of Worcester ,
Muss. , where he had served as principal and
uperlntemlsnt for twenty-six years.
The result was that Dr. Marble was electe
at the next meeting of the board to serve
'or the balance of the year. At that time
ome of the members who are leading the
opposition to his re-election were among his
varmest fcupporters. During the ten montlib
hat Dr. Marble has been at the head of the
Dnialia schools his work lias been generally
commended. Aside from his connec Ion with
.ho schools he has delivered a number of
addresses , both In Omaha and ether No-
iraska cities , which have attracted much at-
' : entlon. It was known to a few who were
'amlllar with the workings of the board that
one or two members had taken offence be
cause some of their suggestions relative to
ho conduct of the tchoo.s had not been car-
'led ' Into effect. It was not generally known ,
however , that the question of Dr. Marble's
e-electlon was considered at length at a
meeting of council No. 126 , which was held
only a day or two ago. Consequently the
action of the members who are said to be
controlled by the dervish protectorate Is
easily explained.
While no decision was reacheJ Monday night ,
the dervishes assort that Dr. . Marble will be
undoubtedly deposed at the next -nectlng
Marble had seven Votes out of thlr'tc'n prct-
snt. while e.lght votes were necessary to elec' .
3f ths two members who were absent Jtcv.
Jramblett is admitted to be opposed to Dr
Marble and President Akin Is also counted
on to give the casting vote igalnst him.
President Akin was proinln ntly concerned
In bringing Dr. Marble to Omalu. but it IE
now said that his desire for th.- support M
council No. 125 for the offlce of district court
clerk will be sufficient to bring him Intc
Ine. Mr. Akin has recently been in Chicago
and It Is stated on good authority that hi
nlsslon was to secure u successor to Iir.
Marble. So far this has proved to be n
llfllcult task. A number of men suppossd to
be available have been sounded , but thc >
were not hankering after the Job. It ni.d
been generally understood that tin I.PW HI-
perlntenilent would be exposed to join th. .
dervishes and this opjrr.-'d to make fu-ii
clats men steer clsar of such a comp'-o-
inlsjng position.
Colonel Akin emphatically denies that
his trip to Chicago had any con
nection with the choice of a superin
tendent of schools and states that so far as
lie knows no successor to Dr , Marble IIBH
been decided on by his opponents. When
asked what reasons were assigned for Dr.
Marble's proposed dismissal , he said that he
had heard It said that Dr. Marble did not
have the peculiar sort of ability that was
v.anted In Omaha. It was thought that lie
hail been so long connected with eastern
schools that he did not have the "helpful"
Influence on the teachers that was needed
In Omaha. It had also been said that he
was growing too old. Colonel Akin averred
that the members who had voted against Dr.
Marble were undoubtedly actuated by the
purest motives , and that In case he was not
re-elected there would be no lack of candl
dates for the position.
