SENSATIONAL SCENE IN COUNTY COURT

In the Dark.
Charles F. Kaufmann, assessor of the
First ward, openly attempted yesterday !
to shoulder tho troubles that hang over his ;
aged fnthnr, Charles Kaufmann, a former I
councilman, by reason of the latter having
been arrested on the complaint of E. E.
Wells, who charged him with the embez
Hement of $2,0'j.85. Mr. Well 1 the
pedal agent In this territory of the Trad
ers' Ipsurance company of Chicago, and the
funds alleged to have been hold from that
lomnany were those Aollected by the senior
Kaufmann as tt Omaha agent. j
The Incident waa afterward described by
Judge Vlnsonhaler of the county court as
the most retnarkablo he had ever seen In a
(Sourt room. The warrant of arrest was
lerved on the senior Kaufmann at the fam
ily home, 801 Pine street, Monday night.
ZueadaoF he appeared In county court
and with him came his attorney, Charles
Tuttle, and his eon, Charles F. Kaufmann.
Deputy County Attorney Abbott started to
read the complaint, which Is long, contain
ing five counts, but Tuttle waived that as a
waste of time and entered a plea of not
"Well, what shall the bond be?" asked
the judge, turning to the state's representa
tive. Abbott sugested $3,000 and Tuttle a
lesser sum and they were still discussing
this when the Junior Kaufmann, who had
been sitting at the side of the court room,
suddenly arose and stepping nearer to the
Judge said: "Ml plead guilty to that. I
am the one. Let this action be brought
against me, not my father."
Insists on Hctnit "nbstltnted.
For a moment there was absolute silence
and the judge stared at the young man
In evident amazement, as did the attorneys
(or the state. Counsel for the defense was
the first to speak, and he said quickly:
"You can't do that. Donf try It. Bit
"No," said the judge, "you cannot bs
substituted for your father In this par
"Well, . then," answered the young man,
''make out a new complaint and make It
against me. I am the one. It will save
a lot of worry and trouble and might as
Well be done now."
While be was speaking the father sat
motionless and with his wyes on the floor.
The eon's hands twitched nervously on the
book that he bold In one hand and the hat
be held in the other. His face was red.
bis eyes were Inflamed as if from loss of
Bleep and there were tears on the lashes.
Finally the fudge set the hearing for
April 18 at 9:30 o'clock and accepted from
the senior Kaufmann a $1,000 bond signed
by Ed Howell of the democratic county cen
tral committee. The proceedings came to
an immediate close and the younger Kauf
mann, walking straight to Attorney Abbott,
aid: "I wish to make a full statement to
the county attorney. It's the shortest and
quickest way and I don't want father to be
worried any further. I have been In trouble
something like this before and I can stand
It better thaa he can. It was up In Dakota
few years ago, but I wasn't to blame.
And In this case we can fix It up all
straight and right. I want to have my
name put In, for I am the one. My father
doesn't know anything about that money.
lAnd the folks my folks at home have bad
all the worry they can stand."
Kaufmann was true to bis promise and
called at Attorney Abbott's office twice yes
terday forenoon, but found the latter out

"Nature lessons" began In all the graded

lessons. Oeneral lines for the study were
drawn up last fall, but little was ac
complished in actual research, as the vege

out its autumn stocks. Now the work is
being taken up in earnest. The pupil Is

COUNT SCHILLER BUSY AGAIN
ninfflnar Fraaer Intimidates Women
and C hildren In Stir
"Count von Schiller," a well known po
lice character, who In his sober moments,
which are few and far between, claims
descent from the family of Schiller, the
German poet. Is wanted by the police au
thorities, who, however, are not making
any especial search for him, confident that
he will make his appearance at his usual
haunts In a short time.
The count has been oa a protracted vaca
tion from the police court and the
habitues of that public building were be
coming anxious when a report came that
he was manifesting his presence in the
neighborhood of Twenty-fourth and Chi
cago streets and Intimidating the women
and children of that part of the city.
According to reports sent in to police
officers Schiller has for some time been
living upon the enforced charity of the
people in that part of the city. The person
making the complaint said that he usually
selects an hour In the afternoon when all
are absent from the bouse but the women,
when be will call and demand food. If
his demands be refused he becomes abusive
and the women usually give him some
thing to get rid of blm. Some of the
women have positively refused and he has
threatened them with violence.
Monday afternoon he became more bold
and stopped one of the little girls of tbe
neighborhood on the street. His actions
scared the child so that she ran home
crying. This action led to tho complaint.
Tbe officer to whom tbe complaint was
"We will have the count picked up, but
there la really nothing to be feared from
him. He will threaten women and children,
but there Is no record of any damage having
been done by him. Even the children could
scare him if they would call bis bluff. He
is harmless, but he Is a nuisance and will
have to be cared for."

leaving Lincoln at 1:40 for Kansas City,
will be moved up to fill the gap In tbe
morning schedule. It will wait till No. 6,

10:30 a. m. No. 6 Is the train that leaves
Omsha at 8:40 a. m., ao that gives this
city a service to southeast Nebraska.
'Another charge will be the service from
Billings to Denver, via Alliance. Since
tbe eastbound through train ts moved back
about eight hours, corresponding changes
are necessitated In this run, and they will
be a great Improvement to the service, ss

cerned. At present this train leaves Al
liance at 4:30 p. m. and reaches Denver at
11:60 p. m. The change will take the train

be held in' Denver from June 26 to July 2.
Ten thousand delegates are expected at
this convention and they will come from
all over the world. From Omaha the
round trip rate is only $15, which Is S3 less'
than the regular fare for one way. This
rate applies from Kansas City, St. Joseph
and all Intermediate Nebraska points, such
as Hastings, York and Beatrice. The same
cuts apply from other points. From Chi
cago tbe round trip rate is $25. from St.

least. Hoke Smith of Atlanta, Ga., ts pres
ident ot the association. A notable list ot
speakers has been arranged. Besides the
United States, there will be delegates from
Cuba, Porto Rico, the Philippines, Mexico,
British America and Hawaii.
Two Carloads ot Immigrants.
Two carloads of immigrants passed
through Union station Tuesday morning,
one for Nebraska points, the other for Cali
fornia. All were tbe raw material, having
Just arrived lu this country. Tho Illinois
Central brought In fifty-one Norwegians in
one load, and here they broke and scattered
out over the state n ell the different lines.
The other crowd was Italian in its makeup
and it was a typical lot of young troubadour
swains. All were young fellows, swarthy
and for tbe most part Intelligent looking.
They knew not a word of English, and their
recent arrival was attested by the serapes
or scarf shawls, which they wore pic
turesquely over their shoulders, with the
fringe flying about their ears. The fashion
plate American men, too, who affect tbe
latest style of flaring brimmed black soft
hats, would be surprised to see the exact
counterpart of this style on the beads of
these Italians Just over. Their bats are
soiled and greasy, but have the same un
bound edge and broad brim. The Italians
went on out to California over the Rock
Goodnow Goes to Rock Island.
Telegraphic Information was received
from Chicago yesterday to the effect that
Charles A. Goodnow, tor some time past
general superintendent of the Chicago, Mil
waukee & Pacific railroad, would on April
15 become general manager of the Chicago,
Rock Island Pacific. At the local offices
of the two railroads no Intimation of such
a change had been received and Rock
Island officials were loth to place any
credence in the story. A. J. Hltt, tbe pres
ent general manager of the Rock Island,
baa been with the line. in the operating de
partment for ten years. He has been
promoted from division superintendent to
superintendent and then to geaeral super
intendent, and finally was made general
manager a year ago on., the resignation uf
Mr. Parker. Mr. Hitt Is thought to stand
very high with the Rock Island and officials
here cannot understand why he would be
let out for Mr. Goodnow.
Rock Island Extends Branch.
Announcement comes from Guthrie, Okl.,
to the effect that the Chicago, Rock Island
t Pacific road will extend Its Enid branch
down to Guthrie. This line leaves tbe
main line to Fort Worth at Enid, swings
out twenty-five miles west and then runs
straight south parallel to the Fort Worth
line aa tar as Lawton. There it breaks
away sharp to tbs southwest, headed di
rectly for Guthrie, and Is now built about
twenty miles out of Lawton. and Is only
seventy-five miles distant from Guthrie.
This action on the part of the Rock
Island would be a forestalling of tbe Frisco.

Several communications upon the subject
ot Irrigation from Qeorge.H. Maxwell were

COMPROMISE OF TAX SUIT
Donation for Auditorium if Proseoution Be
REAL ESTATE EXCHANGE IS DETERMINED
Members Ksprcss Themselves Aaalnat
Accepting Bribe to Drop Matter
Mo Nearly Passed to a
A report gained circulation this week
that the public service corporations ot the
city had offered to donate $20,000 to the
Omaha Auditorium company provided the
tax suit now pending In the supreme court
be dropped. When the matter was called
to the attention of members ot the Real Es
tate exchange they unanimously expressed
the Intention of having nothing to do with
any compromise short of a declston of tbe
court upon tbe matters at Issue.
W. H. Shrlver, one of the complainants
In the rase, said: "I do not think there
will be any compromise considered, at least
not by me. I am in the fight to ascertain
the rights of tbe taxpayers snd of the cor
porations and I would rather see Omsha go
without an auditorium than to see the de
cision of the question lost. The Omaha au
ditorium project Is a worthy one, but our
contest Is a Just one. Between the two my
Interest Is with the question of taxation."
W. H. Green, president of the Real Es
tate exchange, said: "If the public service
corporations were to donate all the money
needed to complete the auditorium and
then bear the expense of maintaining it I
would never consent to abandon the con
test. It has reached a point where we
must know the rights of the people who pay
taxes and the rights of the public service
corporations. The case may go against us,
but the knowledge we will thus gain of the
condition of our laws will be worth all It
costs us, and we will be standing upon the
solid ground of knowledge from which we
can move to a more desirable state of af
fairs. The matter has never been brought
to my attention before, but this Is tho
answer I would make should the proposi
tion be submitted."
Cannot Buy off Prosecution.
C. F. Harrison, member of the tax com
mittee, said: "If the public service cor
porations have any money to give to the
auditorium project I am well satisfied, for
this is a worthy project, but how they are
to buy off the present litigants by such a
donation I cannot see. If we are right, the
corporations owe the city several thou
sands of dollars. Can the payment of that
amount to the Auditorium company cancel
the debt to the city? If It can, I have
studied for naught. So far as I am con
cerned, I am In the fight to stay until Jus
tice Is done all parties."
F. E. Sanborn, president of the Audi
torium company, said: "While no such a
proposition has been made to me, I think
that such a compromise is one much to be
desired. If the corporations are wrong in
their contention they will owe the city
about $30,000 In taxes. If they could be
Induced to put this amount of money In the
Auditorium company the city would get tbe
benefit of it as much as though It would
go to the city treasury and the unpleasant
litigation would be stopped. The persons
responsible for the present suit evidently
do not take Into consideration the fact that
under existing conditions tbe public service
corporations pay one-fourth of all of tbe
personal taxes received by tbe city and
that taking the personal property schedule
as a basis of comparison they are taxed
heavily enough. If they thought of this
they might be willing to come to a com
promise upon some basis such as has been
Bend articles of Incorporation, notices of
stockholders' meetings, etc., to The Bee.
