After an executive session continuing
from o'clock to 10:30 yesterday morning the
Board ef Fire and Police Commissioners
gave out the following statement In writing
to the newspaper representatives In regard
to Its proceedings:
The board gave Instructions to the chief
of police to close and stop all policy wheels
and the sale nnd ril-trlbjtlon of policy slips,
and also nil proprietary games. The de
termination of the hourd Is to suppress the
operation of the policy wheel and the no
torious gambling joints.

Department of the Missouri at Fort Riley.
The board of officers to arrange the prob
lems to be worked out has not been ap
pointed, but will be ready to present Its re
port by the time the maneuvers begin. The
principal problem at this time Is how to
provide supplies and material tor the troops.
There is one regiment of cavalry to be
present, besides the officers who will be
mounted, and the department has not a
large supply of good horses on hand at this
time. Advertisement Is being made for
more than 800 horses for the troops In the
department at this time and It Is not be
lieved that a large part of them will be
delivered In time for the maneuvers.

Mayor Moores when Informed of the
bosrd's action said: "Why, there Is no

been and are some of those private little
games which it is impossible for the
authorities to control, but there has been
jio public gambling."
The Ore and police board also announced
after Its meeting that Thomas Hayes of
the police department, who, when the
board first entered upon its duties was
reduced to the ranks from the position of
a captain, had been moved back one step
toward his former station and made a
aergeant. This will give the department
an additional sergeant, making a total of
Speaking of this action on the part of the
board Chief Donahue said: It will be a
great advantage to our department, for
heretofore we have had to get along with
two sergeants for day and three for night

H. P. Gllmore, alias E. 8. Porter, is tn

In 1892 Gllmore, while in Omaha, forged

OYSTERS AND CELERY COME
First Bivalves Will Appear oa Omaha
Market Last of This
The oyster season will open Thursday, Au
gust 28, ths first of the bivalves to be
shipped from the Omaha Jobbers to the re-
tall trade on that day. The prices this year,
in a wholesale way, show no variation from
the opening prices last year, ths quotations
being: Standards. 80 cents a can; extra
selects, 87 cents a can, and New York
counts, 45 cents a can. Jobbers report a
bright prospect for the oyster season this
year. The first to the market come from
Connecticut and Rhode Island waters, and
by September 15 the Baltimore oysters will
arrive and the season will be at lta height.
Oyster dealers are looking with Interest
to the work of a Joint committee of the
legislatures of Maryland and Virginia, which
is investigating the cultivation and harvest
ing of oysters n Chesapeake bay. Accord
ing to present laws oysters cannot legally
be taken from the Maryland beds before Sep
tember 15, while the open season In Virginia
beglna September 1, but the law Is not
strictly enforced, so that It is easy to get
Virginia oysters at almost any season. The
legislatures of these states decided to unify
their laws so that Chesapeake bay would be
closed to the oyster dredgers uniformly.
The commission has been making investi
gations for some time, and it la said that
it wtll report to both legislatures tn favor of
keeping the bay closed until October 1.
Along with the oysters comes celery, and
there is an Increasing consumption of Ne
braska grown Celery in the local market.
David Cole was at the fields near Kearney
last week, and says that the crop there
will be the largest ever harvested. "There
has been considerable rain," said he, "and
consequently the crop on the low ground
Is somewhat backward. There are probably
200 acres in cultivation thla year, and the
price paid the growers will be from 15 to
20 cents a dozen bunches in the field. In
California they receive from 10 to 15 cents
a dozen bunches, so the Nebraska raiser has
a considerable advantage over the Callfor
nlan. There la much of the Nebraska crop
sold which in California would not be
handled except for local and Immediate consumption."

Several of the men were at Labor Temple

ments were so nearly the same that one will
suffice to show the faots as witnessed and
viewed by the strikers. W. Richelieu, John
Paul and Lewis Bradley and half a dozen
others reviewed ths circumstances of the
case this morning. This statement was
made by Paul:
"Herald did every thing possible to pre
vent this assault. To say that he was de
relict in his duty Is to misrepresent facts.
He waa standing beside the entrance to the
company's yards when these two men, a
guard and a 'scab,' came out. I was stand
ing at Herald'a side. When the two men
had got a few yards from the gate two other
men stepped up to them and engaged them
in conversation. They talked too low to be
distinctly heard, but fearing some trouble,
Herald accosted the men who had detained
the 'scab' and guard and told 'hem not to
bother them, to let them alone and go
about their business. The two men, I sup
pose they were strikers, then left the
'scabs' and walked back to the yard gate
with Herald and me. There was a number
of strikers there. Herald took his position
at his post of duty again 'and in a few
minutes we heard some fellow call for help.

did reach It the men who did the assault

Herald gave chase. They were too far
In the lead, however, and made good their
escape. Herald then returned to his post
of duty. How he could be blamed for
the assault which took place some blocks
from where he was stationed Is more than
I can tell. In 'my Judgment he was en
tirely blameless In the matter."
Without hearing what John Paul had
Bald, Bradley and several others who were
eye witnesses to what took place, gave
substantially the same version of the case,
using in a large part the exact language.
Asked If he was called on to testify at
the hearing which resulted In the dis

"No, I was not there, but they had about
