Private Jamea McGlnley, whose rescue of
Maud West of Council Bluffs from a house
of 111 fame at Hastings, and his subsequent

toriety some months ago, was released from
the guard house at Fort Crook Tuesday,
after having served a three-month sentence
M a charge of petit larceny. Upon being
released from prison McGlnley found that

The process of digestion Is simply explained. In the mouth,
food is masticated and mixed with ealira containing a dlgestant 1
called ptyalin. In the stomach, It is acted upon by gastric Juice
containing pepsin, which digests albuminous foods. In the
intestines, pancreatln is added to digest fas and starches.
Indigestion always Indicates an insufficient amount of one or
. all of these dlffeatant. At first thought It seems proper toabstaln
from foods not easily digested; but reflection shows us that
while this affords relief by giving the weakened organs less to
do, It only makes them weaker by giving them less nourishment.
If you suffer from indigestion, the only right thing to do 1 to
eat a generous variety of food and digest it by using, such a - ,
preparation as Kodol Dyspepsia Cube, which contains all the .
known digestanta, and completely digests what you eat. ,

A war Is on bewteen Building Inspector
Carter and a house mover named Charles
Barnum, and at present the inspector seems
to hold most of the winning cards. One
of the physical evidences of the war Is an
olJ ramshackle house standing on mover's
trucks, half In the street and half on a
lot, at Nineteenth and Pratt streets. Next
door is the palatial residence of W. T
Nelson, lawyer and author of legal text
books. ' The ramshackle house belongs to
M. F. Martin, a real estate dealer.'
Mr. Carter says that If the house Is
moved upon the lot he will never issue an
other permit to Charles Barnum. Mr. Nel

WHITMAN DESERTS HIS BRIDE
Police Matron Little's Romance Has
Sadden and Sad Termination
Through Soldier's Deceit!
J. il. Whitman, member of Company E
Twenty-second infantry, has disappeared
and his bride of a week, 'shi,, who was
formerly Mrs. M. E. Little, police matron.
has applied to the police to locate him,
The disappearance of Whitman was re
ported to the police Tuesday, but a day's
search has failed to throw any light on
his whereabouts. It has been' reported
to the police that Whitman left Fort
Crook several days ago, due to return last
Saturday. He has not yet returned to
the fort and nothing further has been heard
of him by the officers there.
Mrs. Whitman is heart broken over ths
action of her husband, but stated yesterday
morning that she did not believe that he
has deserted her. Tuesday night, while she
was absent from home, at the police sta
tion, she said. Whitman had called at her
house, so shs had been Informed, and she
Is of the opinion that he has probably
became Intoxicated and will return to her
or the fort as soon as he gets sober. The
police, however,- have failed to secure any
trace of him and are of the opinion that
he is not In the city. Whitman informed
his wife that his term of enlistment in
the army would expire in about two weeks
at which time, he and she would go to
Chicago, where he had been offered a lucra
tlvo position in the machine shops. ' On
the strength of this Mrs. Whitman re
signed her position as police matron, and it
has been accepted, and she will not be
reinstated. Her case Is partlclarly sad
because she is left without a position and
has three small children to support.
Whitman and Mrs. Little were married
secretly in Council Bluffs last Wednesday
and no one knew of it until Monday, when
she announced to the chief of police, her
intention to resign. Whitman she said,
had been a boyhood friend In the
east, but that they had been separated tor
a number of years, during which time she
married Mr. Little. When the Twenty-
second, of which he was a member, re
turned, shs and Whitman renewed their
love affair of the old days and their mar
riage was ths result.

Declines to Hold Communication with
Johnnie Wrlaht, gave In Pres
ence of Witnesses.
Ignatius Jehovah Dunn, "deputy county at
torney In and for Douglas county, Ne
braska," Is a very cautious man, which
perhaps explains an incident that occurred
In his office Tuesday.
When the case against Police Officer Mar
tin Shlels, charged with assautling Vic
tor B. Walker, was called in criminal
court Monday, Charles Mars, a colored
man who was to appesr as one of the
witnesses for Walker, was absent, and
Dunn had disquieting suspicions that he
had departed to remain away permanently.
nd this became the L general rumor. It
developed later, however, that .Mars is a
porter on a sleeping car and that he had
gone west with the Shrlders, understand
ing that the case would not be called
for some time. When Johnnie Wright, his
bondsman, heard of Dunn's alarm and
threat to sue on the bond, he went to
Dunn's office with a friend to explain
matters to the latter. The friend who
knew Dunn introduced .Mr. Wright, and
then started to leave the room on business
of his own. But Ignatius saw In this
Imple proceeding a dark plot to attempt
to corrupt him and perhaps to defame
him. He thought of his sacred honor, of
his responsible position and of the day
when he should be county attorney with
two office rooms, a stenographer and a
messenger to do his running about for
him. Rising to his feet with flaming
eyes and uplifted arm he is said to have
Stop! Take not one step toward yonder
door or by heaven I'll follow thee! I per-
celvo the motive in this, and as God lives I
will not be outwitted by such as you. I am
a lawyer, but I still have honor; that honor
I wilt protect at any cost. It you go, I'll
say no word to Johnnie Wright nor Hp ten
to aught he may say to me, for I suspect
that he would fain corrupt me with paltry
bribes or else would go forth and tell to the
world that I sacrificed the dignity of my
office and glory of my name by making sim
ilar offers to him. I'll have none of it. You
stay or I go with youl"
Wright'B friend stayed, the purpose of the
Visit was explained in detail and Mr. Dunn
was finally calmed, agreeing to give reason
able time for Mars' return to Omaha.

CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS
Mayor's Vsto of Capitol Avenue Market
ONE EXTRA LIGHT RESOLUTION STANDS
Order of Sew Electric Llathta Passes
Over Mayor's Veto, While that
for Additional Gas Lights
At the regular meeting of the city coun
cil Tuesday night three vetoes from the
mayor were read, one of which was sus
tained. The 'vetoed documents were as
follows: A resolution setting aside from
the general fund $15,000 to be used In ths
construction of the Capitol avenue market
house, a resolution authorizing the elec
tric light company to place ninety-nine aro
lamps and a resolution authorizing the gas
company to place 100 gas lamps in addi
tion to those now In use. The veto of the
latter was sustained; those of the first
two documents were overridden.
The veto of the market house resolution
Is as follows:
To the Honorable the City Council of
the City of Omaha Gentlemen: I return
herewith without my approval document
No. 1162 passed by your honorable body
at your last regular meeting, May 27, Wi.
This document is a resolution authoris
ing the expendituure of $15,ouO taken from
the genrul fund to be usod In the con
struction of a public market house on
Capitol avenue between Thirteenth and
I veto this resolution for the reason that
the proceedings necessary to be taken for
the narrowing of Capitol avenue from its
present width of 120 feet have not been
taken, and that the proceedings which
have been attempted In that behalf are
not In compliance with the requirements
of the churter and would not protect the
city from liability and damages.
Section 27 of the charter in express terms
provldf-s "that no street or avenue shall
be narrowed to a width of less than nlxty
slx feet, except on petition of two-thirds
of the owners of the lots and real estate
along that portion of the street or avenue
No Petition Filed.
No such petition has- been filed for the
narrowing of Capitol avenue as Is pro
posed. The ordinance which has been
passed relating to the narrowing of Capitol
avenue and authorizing the appointment of
appraisers, under which the appraisers
acted and made their report, does not as
sume to be based on any petition of prop
erty owners. The only petition or waiver
of damages of property owners which was
ever meet or considered was one request
ing the location of market houses on Cap
itol avenue and foreKointr any claim for
damages resulting from the erection or
construction of market houses. These pe
titions do not pretend to assume to ask
for the narrowing- of Capitol avenue or to
waive damages by reason of the narrowing
f the same. The ordinance under which
the proceedings relating to the narrowing
of Capitol avenue were taicen Is Illegal for
lack of the necessary petition of property
owners, as its effect Is to narrow the !
width of Capitol avenue to less than sixty
six feet. The portion of Capitol avenue be
tween Thirteenth and Fourteenth streets
undertaken to be vacated is In the center
of CaDitol avenue and is forty-elithl feet
in width. The effect of such vacation. If It
could be leicallv made, would be to reduce
Capitol avenue on each side of said vacated
space or torty-eignt leet to the wlutft of
only thlrty-slx feet.
No liability of the nature and to the ex
tent of the one Involved In these pro
ceedings should be assumed without flrst
taking steps tor tne protection or the
city, which are required to be taken by
the charter. I therefore veto this resolu
FRANK E. MOORES, Mayor.

the resolution stand, the veto of the mayor
notwithstanding?" The vote was as fol

Gas" Llcht Veto Goes.
The mayor's veto of the resolution pro
viding for 100 additional gas lamps follows:
To the Honorable, the Cltv Council of
the City of Omaha ntlr men: I return
herewith without my approval document
No. 1168,- passed by your honorable body at
your last regular meeting, May 27, 1902.
This document Is a resolution authorizing
the Omaha Gas company to locate 100 ad
ditional gaj lamps. 1 veto this resolution
because It requires an expenditure of money
to be taken from the lighting fund, which
sum taken, with the amount' required by
concurrent resolution No. 1159, would pro
duce an overlap In the lighting fund at
the close of this year of at least KflOO.
From figures given me by our city comp
troller, I find that the 1.83 mills, the amount
levied for the lighting fund, would produce
net fti,w.M. Aua 10 inis levy tne royalty
to be paid by the gas company and the
electric light company and it would make
the total amount available, in round figures,
The fixed exDendltures of the fund are
953 gas lamps, at 30each per year.. 128,690.00
335 electric lamps, at i'A.bO each per
560 gasoline lamps, -at $18 each per
Which makes a total of 170,327.50
Add to this amount the contemplated ad
dition as contained In this resolution and
resolution No. 1159: also add the removal
of gas lamps at an expense of 113 each, in
round ngures tnis would make a
total expenditure of 17)1,827.60. an overlap
of nearly $4,000. This must not be.
l do not wisn to interfere witn tne plac
ing of such lamps as we may have the
money to pay tor and wish to leave- the
locating of the same to your honorable
body, as each councilman knows the neces
sity of his own ward better than I do;
but I would respectfully suggest that In
the location of these lights that you con
sult with the city electrician, so as to avoid
conflicting lights, that is, an electric light,
at a street Intersection and a gas light at
the same nlace. By this means the city
can be lighted to sl better advantage and
et more light lot tne same money tnan
bins located as some of our lights are at
the present time,
But allow me to Impress upon your
honorable body that there must be no over
lap In the lighting fund thin year and it
vnulil be better to have a few thousand
dollars to the good In the lighting fund
than to use un every aonar or said fund
simply because we have the money to use.
therefore veto mis resolution, respect
fully, FRANK E. MOORE3, Mayor.

No Jurisdiction to Kseape
Prosecution. - - -
The attorneys for William Heap, Jr., have
filed In the district court a motion to quash
the proceedings against . htm for alleged
embezxlement, the charge, made by the
Perry Commission . company of. South.
Omaha. It was affirmed by the company
that he failed to deliver cattle on which
he had secured an advance payment' from ;
them of several thousand dollars and the
attorneys Insert In their motion that it
any offense was committed It was In Utah'
where Heap was at the time. .
This contention Is one that Heap made
at the time of his arrest', and was among'
the reason for the protracted delay in
bringing ', htm to Omaha. Heap secured .
an attorney In Wyoming, where the ar-;
rest was made, who fought Sheriff Power'
effort to bring his man In every way he
could. HI attorneys here consider It
worth while to make another attempt be-'
for the case goes to trial.
