turned unsatisfied. Is a sufficient com
pliance with the law to sustain an action
against ths wife to recover for medical at

When George Jacobs was taken In cus
tody in Omaha early In April on the charge
of committing highway robbery In this city
hs told Chief Donahue and a Lincoln de
tective that if treated leniently he would
assist - In unraveling the John J. Glllllan
murder mystery. He claimed that "Bunch"
Jackson, an Inmate of a Lincoln resort,
had told him that Glllllan waa murdered
by Charles E. Hayward and Al Beard.
Hayward at that time was In Jail on ths
murder charge. It was arranged for Ja
cobs to come back to Lincoln, waive pre
liminary examination and be bound over.
In the county Jail Jacobs waa to work Into
the confidence of Hayward and strive to
get Information from him that would lead
to conviction. The plan was thus far car
lied out, but Its consummation was pre
vented by the publication of the story In
an Omaha paper. "Bunch" Williams, hear
ing of the plan in this way, contrived to
be arreated herself and was bound over
to the district court and committed to
Jail. In the Jail she managed to "tip" oft

Ths plot to defeat the plan of the au

Jacobs was brought down from the county

He notified the officers that the deal waa
off and that tbey would have to look else

Tkeaa Are Breagkt to
WASHINGTON, July 1. Ths annual re
port of Chief Wllkia ot tbe secret service
division, submitted today to Secretary
Shaw, shows that during the year there
were arrested 573 persons, charged with
various offenses against the federal
statutes. New York lesdlng with eighty
five prosecutions. Of tbe offenders 413
were of American birth, the next largest
number of offenders being Italians.
Sixty-three per cent of those arretted
were convicted. The report records the
fact that during the fiscal year but one
dangerous spurious note wss put In cir
culation, a $5 silver certificate, while there
was only one other even passable counter
felt, a $1 silver certificate, whose makers,
with their complete plant, were captured in
Chicago the same day they attempted to
put one of their notes Into circulation.
The report refers to marked Improvement
In the New Tork district, where tbe circu
lation of "all-silver" counterfeit coins hss
been reduced more than 80 per cent as
compared with the previous year.
Reference Is made to the continued
activity among criminals who make v the
raising" of notes a specialty and it la
pointed out that this crime might be pre
vented by the adoption of a distinctive size
for the notes of smaller denominations
the ones and twos to be, say an Inch
shorter and one-half lneh narrower than
those of $5 or over. '
