ing new legislation the delegates to the
annual meeting of the United States Golf
association met tonight In this city. Be

each of the twenty-four associate clubs of
the association representatives from many
of the 200 allied clubs were present Pres
ident R. W. Robertson wae la the chair.
i-. previous t6 the calling of the meeting
to order the principal subject talked over
by the delegates , was the spirited contest
between the east and the west for the pos
session of the. amateur championship tour
'. namonu , The contest has . been going on
' tor weeks and both factions were prepared
tonight to urge their claims to the utmost.
; The selection of the courses over which
the open and women's championship are
'to bo held seemed to be of small Import
ance as compared to the main amateur
rent. No elub seemed anxious to tske
either of the, two lesser event.

York Golf club.
President Robertson presented a long re
port to the delegates on behalf of the out
going executive committee, saying It was
not a question of doubt any longer that
the association has outgrown Its constitu
tion, and the outgoing committee desired
'to reccjmmend several changes. The first
related to the representation of members
without distinction to class. It Is proposed
that In the future the distinction between
the associate members and the allied mem
bers of the association may be done away
with. The second recommendation related
to the subject of proxies. The principal
Change In this respect Is that no person
shall represent a club at a meeting of
which he Is not a member.
Chances la Ploying; Rales.
' There will be changes in the way of
playing chasoplonshlp matches. Under the
present rule the qualifying round played
y on the first day eonslsts of thlrty-stx holes.
The suggestion I that the rules be changed
so as to make the qualifying round played
on the opening day -consist of eighteen
holes, the best sixty-four scores to qualify.
The sixty-four playsrs qualifying are to
continue playing over the elghteen-hole
course until but two players are left. The
two surviving players are to qualify for
the final round, which shall consist of
thlrty-slx fcblss. In the event of ties the
players so tied pre to keep on playing
until one shall have gained a hole.
The proposition to Invite an English
team from the Oxford and Cambridge so
cieties of Englsnd to come here during the
coming sesson and compete with American
teams was laid on the Ubls. ' 1

GARDNER AND SMITH TONIGHT
Beth Boxers Said to Be la Goo" Con
dition tor Ten-Itoaad
Tralhed to the minute and esrh with a
strong backing in the sporting fraternity
the two featherweights, Eddie Gardner
and Hatch Smith, will meet In the tins; at
Washington hall tonight and go ten rounds,
Everything le ready for the slTalr and all
r'resagea a good evening'e sport. The pre
Imlnary between Danny Haley and Paul
Murray la alone attracting attention, for It
la seldom that a middleweight bout, and
especially one between two ouch recognised
boxers, can be secured for an opener.
Gardner and Smith are both merely welt
ing now, and have been for the last two
days. Gardner has had a hard tight to
make weight. It having been necessary for
him to work Off about eleven pounds, but
Manager Ouptlll stated last night that
Eddie had made the 124 pounds on Tuesday
night, and was not taking any more
chances with his hands In the ring since
that time. His work during Wednesday
and Thursday was a Jog of ten miles each
day on the road, followed by indoor stunts
at rope-skipping and light exercises. Today
ha will rest about ail day. He has not had
the gloves on since Tuesday.
Smith was always below the limit and
has had no trouble on that score. His chief
task has been keeping in good condition
without going over the edge. Ilia man
agers, however, say that he Is In prime
shape right now, not over-trained, not
gone soft nor lax; In fact. Just right. They
also say that the colored boy has recently
made a hobby of alternating that well
known right arm punch with one equally
vicious from the otner side. ,
Smith's punches are admitted tn be de
moralising If they land. In the Whlttaker
fight they did not find the mark, merely
because Whlttaker would not step up and
fight. He refused throughout to take a
single chance of being hit about the head.
But that Is never Gardner's style. He Is
alwavs forcing it and In clear up to the
neck, but depends for safety -upon another
point, his superb defense. This, nis oacK
ers say, will render him Invulnerable to
Smith's terrible blows. Everyone who saw
Gardner mix It for twenty rounds with Ole
Oieson at South Omaha and stop every
one of the Chlcagoan s uppercuts ana
a large majority of his punches and
swings believes In Gardner's standing as
one of the best guarded men In the ring,
but whether that will avail him tonight la
to be determined.

I0DIFIES MURDER CHARGE

SAIDY'S COUSIN IS FIRST WITNESS
Marderrd Assyrian's Relative Tries te
Threw Some Light la Dark Places
Interpreter a Crater of
The county attorney announced yesterday
at the beginning of the trial of Bader Mtna,
alleged to have participated In the kilting
of Najeeb Saldy In front of her store st 141
South Thirteenth street, November 20, that
he would ask only for a verdict of murder
In the second degree, but that he would in
sist on that. The indictment had charged
murder in the first degree.
In forecsstlng his line of prosecution the
county attorney Implied that he would seek
to show thst Mrs. Mlna brought' from her
store the knife with which Joe Bardaweel
stabbed Saldy. The attorneys for the de
fense stated that they would prove that
Bardaweel was chssed nearly two blocks
by s crowd of six or more who, with clubs,
sought to beat him seriously; thst he was
cornered near the Mlna store; that after
his club had been splintered In hie hsnd he
took his knife from his pocket and stsbbed
Saldy In selfdefense snd thst during all this
time Mrs. Mlna wss In the rear of her store
and did not appear until Saldy was dead and
Bardaweel about to flee.
Joseph Saldy, whose father Is a brother of
the dead men's mother, was put on the
stand sa the Only witness of ths afternoon.
He testified thst Najeeb bad come to Omaha
directly from Assyria snd that he had been
here only five weeks when stabbed. He was
not present at the fight In which hte cousin
was killed,- but ran to It later. Another
cousin of the dead man will be put on the
tand this morning, and about twenty other
members of the colony are to be heard in
the course of the trial. Very few of them
can speak English and Minnie Ablan hss
been engsged as interpreter. Minnie is an
Assyrian girl about 20 years old and is ac
quainted with not only the English lang
uage, but French perfumes and American
ways, and she promises to be one of the In
teresting features of tbe trial. v
Defendnnt In at Ease.
Among those present In the court room
the one who appeared to be least disturbed
wss the defendant, who sat In her chaii all
morning with two small children playing st
her knees and over tbe court room floor.
Others of the colony sat apart from her,
the young people dressed In gayest colors
and the elders In silks snd suits that were
evidently the best their wardrobes af
forded. Mrs. Mlna is tawny, apparently
not more than 40 years old, and dressss
more severely than most of the others.
Bardaweel Still Missing;.
Bardaweel ran away when the patrol
wagon was sighted and has not since been
located, although Mlnter Bylastro has re
cently reported that he ssw him In New
York on December 6, and It Is believed that
he went back to the old country. The be
ginning of the trial has revived Interest In
his whereabouts and many of the Assyrians
here are said to he anxious for his cspture
and to have spoken to the pollee lately ss
to the advisability of attempting to locate
him In the old country. Chief Donahue
said yesterday: "All that could have
been done we have done to apprehend the
man. The last we heard of him was a re
port that he had been seen In New York
and had taken ship for his old home. It
the report Is true -It would bea difficult
matter to get him. In fact, it would be al
most impossible. " It may be, however,' that
the report is not true and, that we will yet
arrest him. At present we are not making
any systematlo search. We are awaiting
LIBRARY BOARD BUSINESS
Dlstrlbntlnsr Station to Be Established
la Northern Section of
City. , '
The regular monthly meeting of ths
library board was held last night, with all
members present, excepting Mr. Leevltt. A
proposition from a Lincoln firm of adver
tising agents to furnish monthly bulletins
in return for the privilege of exploiting
the cover pages for advertising was de
clined as contrary to tbe policy of the
board. A change was mads in the rul
so as to provide for keeping the library
open every day In the year, except Christ
mas day and the Fourth of July, tbe hours
for Sundays and legal holidays being the
same as at present on Sundays, without
ths privilege of drawing books for home
use on these days.
The board also Instructed the librarian
to make ' arrangements to establish and
maintain a station for the distribution of
books in the vicinity of Ames avenue and
Twenty-fourth street. This was In re
sponse to a request made some time ago
by the North Omaha Improvement club for
a branch library. Not being prepared to
open a new library, the board decided oa
ths station In Its place for the present.
A resolution was adopted gratefully ao
knowledglng the work of ths Omaha
Woman's club for decorating the children's
room, but requesting that plans for future
decorations bs submitted for ths board's
endorsement. The monthly report of the
librarian was received and bills aggregat
ing $1,64 audited for payment.

who live near Ravenna, Neb., started yes

his father, whom Havllk has not seen In
twenty-four years, and who lives twelve
miles from Kimball, 8. D. An elderly man,
who ssld hkj name waa T. J. Lyon, with
whom tbay bad been talking for some time,
suddenly saked them, when tbe train was
ths Burlington depot In this city, to
bold what purported to be a $100 bill as
security for the loan of 'money, to pay

They gave him $50, all the money they
had, and Lyon Quickly disaooeared. Ex-
mining the paper given . them, they dis
covered It waa a neatly engraved, bond
Issued by a Colorado mining company for
$1,000. Lyon had folded the bond so that
it appeared not tinlike a $100 bill, snd had
held his thumb over one of the ciphers.

store the water, and so render salable and

homeseekers, under such restrictions and
terms as are Just and equitable, and for
such a price as will cover all expenses of
rendering the land tillable. It would be
