O'KEEFFE STILL LNTERRIF1ED
gouti Omaha Member Not Afraid of Partj
STOCKHAM MAY NOT TAKE HIS NEW JOB
Capiat Kara 'Will Not Become
Superintendent of Pnor Farm
loirs 5rn Resolution
"What are you going to do when the
county democratic central committee's
committee call to straighten out the dem
ocratic members of the board?" was asked
Commissioner O'Keeffe yesttrday morning.
"I guess I'll leave the state," answered
The unterrlfled Richard with a imlle, ai he
glanced at a traveling bag that Commis
sioner Connolly had packed, preparatory to
leaving tonight with Mm. Connolly for a
visit of two weeka or more In the extreme
aat. Then, more seriouoly, he added:
"I really haven't thought much about It
and don't know what the committeemen
will ask, nor what they hope to do, but one
part of my answer to them will be that I
m tor the taxpayers, not the politicians
wbo want county Jobs.
"I can pick out halt a doten of theee men
who are making the most noise about this
board's course and show that they wanted
to get onto the county pay roll. The chair
man ("elected some queer men for hi com
mittee to visit us In the Interest of the
party. Everybody know what Ford wanted,
because everybody can remember how he

waiting to step Into the place when It was
Comment! on Connolly.
"Aa for Mr. Connolly'a proposal to do
whatever two members of a committee of
three should deride as best, I must say that
It seems to me he has put himself In a
queer situation. This arrangement would
bind him to vote for removals If the com
mitteemen so advised, and naturally the
committeeman would advise having the
county farm In charge of a democrat. How
then can Connolly keep bis word, for in the
meeting of the committee of the whole, as
.very member present testifies, he de
clared that the appointment of Captain
Will Stockham, republican, for the place
would be made with hi free consent, that
the captain should remain a year or at
least until the possible changes are made
in the personnel of the board January 1,
Mr. Connolly's departure just at this time
makes the situation at the county farm a
particularly interesting one. Captain Stock
bam told a representative of The Bee yes
terday that the resolution of last Saturday
appointing him as superintendent and In
structing him to act as Much after June 1,
but without (specification as to time, was
not sufficient. He said: "If the board
adopts a new resolution appointing me su
perintendent for the seven months from
June 1 to January 1, I'll take the place. If
not, I won't. And the appointment must
be made before June 1."
Hofeldt Is with O'Keeffe.
With Connolly out of town such a resolu
tion cannot be adopted, a Chairman Ho
feldt la known to be with O'Keeffe for re
taining Oest. the democratic Incumbent.
But in this connection there arlsea the
other question aa to what la to happen If
Btockham keeps hi word. There has al
ready been adopted a resolution making
him superintendent after June 1, and unless
the republican members vote with the dem
ocrats In rescinding that resolution the vote
must stand a tie. Mr. Oest might continue
In command, and indeed la said to bavo
planned to fight in court his removal from
the place, but some attorneys question his
ability to collect salary if he remains In
the institution after June 1 without being
authorized by the board.
"With matters thus complicated by a res
olution which be himself introduced, It 1
mall wonder that Mr. Connolly feela tfie
seed ot ocean breezes and a two week'
trip," remarked a democrat at the court
house yesterday morning.
TROSTLER IS AN INVENTOR

Ninth ward, haa devised a new kind of a

The model returned from the patent office
yesterday and Mr. Troatler is thinking of

with turbine-shaped wheel, made to revolve
very rapidly by means of the winding and

A. V. TODD SAYS NOT GUILTY
Former Agent of Paoifio Mutual Denies
Charges Against Him.
DECLARES HE IS SQUARE WITH COMPANY
Brought Back from Minneapolis,
Where He Has Been I.lrlna t'naer
His Right Xsme-Jlo Requi
A. V. Todd, formerly general agent of the
Pacific Mutual Life Insurance company, waa
brought back to Omaha yesterday morning
from Minneapolis by Sergeant Havey of
the police department. Todd Is wanted on
a charge of embezzling money from the
company, the amount stated In the com
plaint being 3356. He waa arrested sev
eral days ago in Minneapolis at the re
quest of the Omaha officials and came back
without requisition papers.
Todd stated yesterday morning that the
company could auBtaln no charge against
him and that his arrest was
spite work. He said: "They charge
me with getting away with thla money
on or about January 17. About that time
I owed the company $1,400, which I settled
by turning over to it $3,000 worth of per
sonal property, and I thought that squared
the whole business. I have been traveling
under my own name and have made no
attempt to keep secret my whereabouts
I have been in Minneapolis under my own
name and boarding at a hotel there.
Was Xot la Hiding.
"They could have arrested me any time
they wanted to and I don't understand, if
there ia anything In the charge, why they
have waited so long. I don't care to make
any statement at this time, or at least
until I see an attorney. The whole bus!
nesa is spite work and there is nothing
in the charge. There was no need to aend
an officer for me, for I would have re
turned here any time had I known I was
Fred B. Morris,-general agent of the
Pacific Mutual, atated that he did not care
to discuss the case, aa he was only the
agent of the company, and that one of the
officials would be here from Chicago in a
few days to see about it.
The Fidelity and Deposit company of
Maryland Is on Todd's bond, and will push
the prosecution. President Karr of the
city council called on Todd at the city
Jail yesterday morning and will likely get
bond for him.

The History of Nebraska.
To the People of the State:
The lamented death ot J. Sterling Morton,
editor of the History of Nebraska before ita
completion, justifies the following statement
which the undersigned cheerfully make:
We have examined the prospectus and the
financial status of the history aa submitted

and are convinced of the intention, and abil
ity to finish and publish the work within a
reasonable time, and as nearly aa possible
according to the outline and wishes of Mr.
Morton. While bis death will obviously
cause some delay, the publishers believe
thst tbey will be able to issue the work not
later than January, 1903.
It gives us special satisfaction to be able
to announce that. In accordance with the
known plana of Mr. Morton, which he had
made previous to his death, Mr. Albert Wat
ktns of Lincoln, whose peculiar fitness tor
this work is known to us all, will be editor

DEFERS EIGHT-HOUR SYSTEM
Police Board Finds It Inespedlent t
Introduce Xew Shift
The Board of Tire and Follce commls
slonera hss decided not to introduce the
eight-hour system in the police departmen
for a while yet. Though a majority of the
board favora the project. It la thought in
expedient to try It for the present, sin
it will necessitate a material increase
in the force.
At Monday'a meeting a communication
waa read from the Prospect Hill Ira
provement club, asking that that section
of the city which Ilea north of Hamilton
street and between Thirtieth and Thirty
sixth streets b given police protection.
The secretary Was directed to inform the
club that after June 1 a. patrolman will
report regularly at the call box at Thirty-
third and Parker streets.
A letter was received from Mary B. New
ton, principal of the Castellar echool, con
gratulating Detectives Drummy and Mitch
ell and Patrolmen Inda and Dargaczwskl on
their success In handling the Castellar
school burglary of May 10. The alleged
burglar haa been arrested and bound over
to the district court and the goods have
been recovered. A similar letter was re
celved from W. B. Belt, manager for the
Nebraska Telephone company, commending
Detectives Heelan and Johnson upon the ar
rest of John Dixon, charged with looting
telephone pay stations. The letter called
attention to the fact that the detectives
took the case at 2 p. m. Friday, that the ar
rest waa made at 6 p. m., that the euspect
confessed at 11 p. m. and that he was con
victed and sentenced at 8:30 the following
A report was received from City Electri
cian Schurlg on the subject of the expedi
ency of remounting the big electric alarm
bell In the tower of engine house No. 3. The
report was adverse. Mr. Schurlg said he
had Investigated the subject of alarm belle
and had learned that the system has been
abandoned in nearly all tlea of the metro
politan class in the country. "Its only
effect is," he wrote, "to collect a crowd of
volunteer firemen, who Impede the work of
the regular firemen."
The secretary waa authorized to solicit
design for stars or shields to be worn by
the city police, since the stars now In use
are tarnished and unsightly.

It waa 'noted some time ago that certain
musicians of thst city had organized a union
which affiliates with the Western Labor
union and that there would be a struggle
between the Omaha union and the new one
for business in South Omaha. It is now
said that the western union has been recog
nlzed by the central body of South Omaha,
which holds a 'charter from the American
Federation of Labor. . A member of the
Omaha union said:
"Our delegate to the South Omaha cen
tral union have,, Withdrawn. The delegate
of the rival union had been recognized and
we could not alt In the aame organization.
South Omaha haa been unfavorable to the
Omaha union ever since last summer, when
it consented to. the employment of a band
of non-union men from out In the state at
the bull fighting carnival. Now, when the
matter ia presented to the executive com
mittee of the national union and Is brought
before the federation the South Omaha cen
tral body will, either have to bounce the
Interlopers or surrender its charter."

Considerable Interest centers around the
meeting of Modern Woodmen of America
to be held at the Crelghton Orphcum June
B, at which Head Consul Northcott will

member of the society in Nebraska and
75,000 In Iowa, all of whom are deeply In

At a meeting of the head camp a commit
tee was appointed to provide a change In
the method of aecuring the benefit fund,
W. H. Thompson of the Nebraska Jurisdic
tion being a member of the committee.
Many ideas were proposed, but the com
mittee finally decided upon the step-rate
plan, by which the rate paid by the mem
ber for Insurance advances from year to
year, with his age, and also recommended
a reserve fund to be created by an assess
ment of 6 cents per month upon each mem
The plan proposed by the committee
meets the approval of the head officers, but
local members of the organization claim
that 85 per cent of the members are op
posed to it, believing that a comparatively
few can afford the higher rate thus re
quired. Member Expresses Opinion.
Said a member of one of the local camps:
"Mr. Northcott and the other head offi
cers are very anxious to have the plan
adopted and have gone so far a to organize
a literary bureau, which ha been placed
in charge of Ab. Land!, a well known pub
lisher of Insurance papers. They claim
that it is their Intention to educate the
masses of the membership until they can
see the advantage ot the atep rate and the
reserve fund, but In my opinion the expense
of that method will preclude lta adoption
"Everyone familiar with the condition ot
the order admits that some provision should
be made for a rainy day and the only dif
ference hinges upon the method to be
adopted. A large number are in favor ot
the creation of an emergency fund and still
more favor a plan to make a minimum
number of assessments each year, not lees
than twelve, the balance left after all losses
have been paid to be covered into an emer
"It has been the boast ot the officers and
of the membera of the order that the so
ciety never made many calls tor assessment
that were nt absolutely necessary. Many
years they have only called ten assessments
and many more they have called but eleven,
while last year they called twelve when
there waa money enough In the treasury to
close the year without the last assessment.
How to Create Reserve Fond.
"If there had been twelve assessments
each year, regardless of the deaths, and the
surplus turned Into the emergency fund
there would be no danger from that source,
as aeveral millions ot dollars would be at
Interest at thla time. At the present time
about $100,000 la rataed on each assessment
and about $350,000 required to pay the losses.
leaving a balance of $50,000 from each as
sessment. "There is one thing peculiar about the
present agitation, and that la that It haa bad
no effect upon the growth of the society.
There were about 13,000 membera added in
March, when the last statement waa pub
lished, and the Increase haa been maintained
in April. ,
"The membera of the order 'In Omaha,
South Omaha and Council Bluffs wbo have
been invited to hear Mr. Northcott will be
glad to learn the reason why he favora the
