Police Department Preparing; to
Proaecnte Alleged Wife Beater
to Law's Limit.
The police department Is preparing to
make hard times for Frederick A. Bruton,
the man arrested Saturday night on a
charge of wife beating. A consultation waa
held at the office of the chief of police, at
the suggestion of Mayor Moores, for the
purpose of providing a penalty suitable for
the crime, and It was decided that all of
the powers of the state and the city should
be brought to bear upon the alleged wife
beater. Under the law a city prosecution
is no bar to prosecution under the state
law, so after Bruton has received a hear
ing before Judge Berks the police, depart.
ment will file charges with the county at
torney and have Bruton prosecuted under
the state law.
"Wife beating is a form of brutality
which shall not go unpunished If I can help
It," said Mayor Moore. "It 1 inexcusable
and if we can secure a conviction I will
have Bruton prosecuted a far a any law
will allow. The county attorney will not
take the case before the police Judge, and
I do not care. He can take It before any
Justice of the peace he desires, but the case
against Bruton will be carried aa far as
Police officers aay that Bruton has made
a practice of not only beating his wife, but
of kicking her, and that this ha continued
for many year.

Secret 8erric Officer Tells of Perfection of
Photographio Counterfeiting,
When Coloring; Is Perfected Photo,
cmphern Will Be Able to Make
Paper Money Hauler Than
the Government.
A new counterfeit, a national bank note
upon the Merchants' and Farmers' bank of
Weatherford, Tex., has been discovered by
the United States secret service and re
ported to the local officer of the depart
ment. This is a photographic note, printed
on two sheet of paper pasted together, be
tween which silken threads have been in
serted. It Is of the series of 1882.
"This system of counterfeiting," said Cap
tain John Webb, secret service officer, "Is
going to bring about trouble for the present
system of paper money. There Is Just one
thing which will have to be perfected and
then It will be practically impossible to
detect counterfeits, and that la the color.
When color photography has been perfected.
or some system has been devised of stain
ing photograph paper, then it will be nec
essary for the government to devise some
circulating medium other than paper money.
A man with a camera can then make money
more rapidly and a great deal easier than
the United States Itself and detection will
be practically impossible. The note Just re
ported must be a fairly good reproduction
aside from color, as no specific Imperfec
tions by which it may be detected have been
Plates o Lunger Necessary.
"In an earlier day the counterfeiter of
money had to make a steel plate and
operate a press. Aside from the danger of
mistakes and imperfections In the plate
there was an element of expense attached
which made it practically Impossible for
many to engage In the business. Then there
have been attempts to pass zinc etchings.
which were counterfeits hardly worthy
of the name. The first photographic re
production which caused trouble was one
where the photograph had been printed on
both sides of the same sheet of paper. It
was not difficult to detect, but when I asked
several photographers how It had been done
they seemed to be unable to answer. Now
that the photograph Is being printed upon
two sheets and the threads Inserted the
question Is becoming more Involved. Let
them get the color correct and detection
will be Impossible."

Wife of Venerable Minister Passes
Away la Her Seventieth
Mrs. Henrietta M. McCague, wife of
Thomas McCague, D. D.. died yesterday
morning at her home at 426 South Fortieth
street, after an illness of only one day,
death being the result of pneumonia, which
developed Sunday. Sunday she attended
church and after the service complained of
pain in her lungs. This steadily became
worse until the end at 7:15 yesterday morn
Mrs. McCague was an old resident of
Omaha, coming to this city in 1867. She
waa the daughter of John Lowes of Warren
county, Ohio, and was educated at Oxford
and South Salem, O. In July, 1864, she waa
married to Rev. Thomas McCague and left
with him In the aummer of the aame year
to found the mission of the United Pres
byterian church in Cairo, Egypt, which ha
since grown to be such a power for good.
None will ever know the trials, vlscissl-
tudes and difficulties in this pioneer work
in a strange land and among a atrange peo
ple, with a new language to be learned, new
cuatoma to be adopted and a new life lived,
but no one ever heard this brave woman
In 1861 she returned to America, locating
at Dea Moines, la. In 1466 the family
nioted to Kebra City and In U67 came
to Omaha, where they have sines resided.
Immediately upon coming to Omaha a
United Presbyterian church was started,
Mr. McCague using largely of hi own mean
for the erection of the building, which waa
located near the Pacific school. Many of
those who lived here at that time will re
member the hand-to-hand struggle which
was carried on and many speak to this
day of her missionary zeal, her faith and
her hope in this second pioneer field of
her life.
Not only In her own church, but In all
charitable and Christian work, waa she ever
ready to give of her time and her talenta.
Few knew that among the Aasyrlan people
of our own city she waa often found speak
ing to them In their mother tongue, coun
seling and helping them. She was one of
the founder of tho Old Ladles' home and
was always an active and energetic worker.
Of the family surviving her are her hus
band. Rev. Thomas McCague; her sons,
John L., Thomas H. and George 8. of Omaha
and William L. of Seattle, Wash., and

Insiit Upon Giving Daily Dog Shows in
Oity'Clerk's Office. '
Applicants . for License Consider It
Pleasing; to Show Off the Intelll
' fence and Agility of
Their "How-Wows."
In issuing a dog license the employes of
the city clerk's office ask three questions
and write twenty words. Then they tear
off the perforated certificate from the stub
book and hand it to the applicant. This
supposedly completes the job and It is
about a minute's work, but if the clerk
get out of it in lees than fifteen time that
long he Is lucky, for of the 300 people who
have secured licenses thus far 264 have in
sisted on detailing the cleverness of their
dogs and 182 of these have brought the
animals with them to furnish ocular dem
onstration In support of their statements.
So the clerk's working staff expects to
spend the major portion of ita daya from
now till about June 1 watching the antics
of dogs and refereelng kaleidoscopic aettos
between those canines that ignore their
masters' commands and endeavor to estab
lish a new catchweight city hall champion
whenever they meet another ready per
former there on the aame errand.
"A man standing here half a day and not
ing the operation of the dog license clerk
would hear scores and scores of stories
about the wonderful Intelligence of the ani
mals," said one of the clerk's employes,
"and he would also be compelled out of
courtesy to watch dogs do tricks until he
was black In the face.
"It Is astonishing how many people want
us to know all about the animal on which
they are taking out a dollar's worth of life
Insurance. The old tales of bringing papa's
slippers to him when he gets home at
