SAVES INNOCENT PRISONER
Omaha Detective Gog to Relief of Kan Up
for Highway Robbery.
TERM IN PETITENTIARY SEEMED CERTAIN
Vomplalnlns Mlnra Positively Klrif
llflra Ihe oprrt, hat Omahan
Satisfies thr lonrt that Wis
lakr Wnn Hern Mmlr,
Illinois penitent lary doom were about to
win wide to admit M. Wicks for a long
confinement, for highway robbery and as
sault with Intent to wound, when W. H.
Hoffman, a private detective from Omaha,
arrived In Chlrago and saved the tremb
ling suspect. Hoffman atatea that it cost
him Just 160.40 to lay the Rood Samaritan,
but that he feels well repaid.
"It was another of those bad rases of
mistaken Identity," said the detective yes
terday. "There was present in the court
room a man who had been twice shot and
then robbed by thugs In Chicago, the night
of July 8 last, and who swore that be rec
ognized tn Wicks one of the men who com
mitted the crime. It was known In ad
vance what his testimony would be and
there seemed a certainty that Wliks would
go to the penitentiary for a long term.
"The first I knew of all this was when I
received from Attorney I). M. Elliott of
Chicago a letter he had written at Wicks'
request, stating the circumstances of his
trouble and appealing to me to assure the
court that Wicks had been in Omaha at
the time of the holdup. I remembered
Wicks well, for he was one of the several
colored men I had In charge in the Market
comralpsary department for a time last
summer and was an exceptionally well be
haved fellow.
Vlnkea ".are of Dates.
"News of his detention surprised me and
I went at once to the company's books lo
make sure of datrB and found that he bad
been with us and had receipted for pay
July 9, so he could not have been In the
slugging business In Chicago the night be
fore. I wrote at once the details of his
history here during that early part of July
and forwarded It to Wicks immediately.
Then came the Information from his attor
ney that the testimony of the complaining
witness would be so strong that only my
personal appearance and submission to
cross-examination could save Wicks.
"Well, I didn't have any pressing invita
tions to use free railroad mileage at that
time and I was busy, but the more I thought
of letting that honest colored man spend
yours In a penitentiary when I knew him
to be guiltless of the crime charged was
more than I could stand. I defy any man
to sleep soundly under such circumstances.
Finally I got to even dreaming about It,
and I decided that when a fellow's good In
stincts are working that hard on him It's
up to him to do something. So I went to
Chicago, armed with my own credentials
and the affidavits of prominent people In
Omaha who had known Wicks aa I had
Vnown him, and I went on the stand for
him.
Contradictory Testimony.
"My positive testimony was so contra
dictory of that of the Chicago man, equally
positive, that tbo court Itself put me
through a cross-examination that was
searcher. With two men swearing certain
knowledge of the colored man's having been
t two different points 600 miles apart at
one and the same time, the court conceded
that It was a knotty problem. But I had.
the advantage in that I had seen Wicks
often in the daytime and the Chicago vic
tim only during the struggle at night, and
I won out.
. "When the Judge finally said: 'Prisoner
discharged,' It was worth going a long way
to soe that darkey's face. It was ona great
mile, though there were tears In his eyes.
He shook the hand of everybody he could
reach, and wound up by exclaiming to me:
'Jess you watch dls boy get back to Omaha,
quick as ever he know bow. Dis heah Chi
cago place ain't got no more chams fob. me.
I been in jail three months now and I'se had
muff more'n enuff. I'm most skeered to
go outside de doab for fear somebody else
will recognize me for murdah.' "
Detective Hoffman returned yesterday
from Chicago and expects Wicks to arrive
by slow freight at an early date.

TELEGRAPHERS IN SESSION
tienrral Committee Will Insist oa
tlavlaaj dome )arllona
Passed I on.
The general committee or the Order of
Railway Telegraphers, Vnion raclfle di
vision, which araembled In the city last
week, got down to actual business yesterday
morning. The gentlemen say their delib
erations are merely continuations of the
meetings held In the city during the sum
mer and that nothing will be made public
until the differences, whatever they are,
are passed up to officials and by them acted
upon. It has been learned on what Is re
garded as reliable authority, that the men
and the company are not on bad terms, but
that telegraphers have a few matters which
they are very anxious to have settled their
way and that their refusal to drop things
when they failed to get a satisfactory hear
ing with General Manager Dickinson when
they were here before, may be taken as evi
dence of their determination In the matter.
It was said at President Burt's office that
the telegraphers had presented no claims
there and that their affairs probably would
come before Superintendent of Telegraph
Korty. f
For some time 'there '"iave been rumors
of dissatisfaction among, flip telegraphers
on other H'arrlman roads Jtvraides the Union
Pacific, especially the Southern Pacific. But
it seems that the men on the latter road
will be successful In reaching amicable ad
justments of all their affairs and avoid
any open hostility. .

The United States Circuit Court of Ap
peals of San Francisco, Cal., recently
handed down an opinion affirming the de
rision of Judge Morrow of the United
States Circuit Court of San Francisco, who
had granted a personal Injunction against
Samuel Bros. & Company, who with a
large number of other dealers on the Pa-
clflc coast had been engaged for some time
past In making and selling a counterfeit
article purporting to be Hxistetter's Stom
ach Bitters, and advising purchasers to
obtain the genuine bottle of The Hostetter
Company with the label affixed, refilling
them with their goods, and selling same
as the genuine article.
This comprehensive decision being final,
prohibits all unfair dealers, from manu
facturing or selling any article of Stomach
Bitters, either la bulk, or by the gallon or
otherwise, or In any way making use of
the name of HOSTETTER, except In connec
tion' with the sale of the genuine article,
and also prohibits the sale of any Bitters
In bulk, though the name HOSTETTER be
not used. If the suggestion and advice Is
made to the purchaser, that he shall put
the article Into the genuine empty HOS
TETTER bottle, and sell them for the gen
uine HOSTETTER'S BITTERS.
This decision establishes the Hostetter
Company in the exclusive use of the name
HOSTETTER, and the ownership In the
trade mark and trade name in connection
with either the manufacture or sale of
Stomach Bitters In any manner whatso
ever. Announcements of the Theaters.

STREET RAILWAY VALUATION
Secretary Morse Makes fteturi to the City
Tax Commissioner.
GIVES FIGURES FOR FAIR CASH VALUE
Property and Franehlaea Within City
of Omaha lrf to Re Worth
Three Million. Three Hon
ored Thousand Dollrrs.
The Omaha Street Railway company, by
lis secretary, W. V. Morse, made Its re
turn to the tax commissioner yesterday
of Its personal property for purposes of
taxation. Following is the exact text of
the return:
I make return o William Fleming, the
commissioner, as the fair cash value of all
the property ami franchises of the Omaha
Street railway . within the corporate limits
of the city of Omaha, excluding only its
real estate, of the sum of three millions
and three hundred thousand dollars, ($:),
au000.) W. V. MuKSK, Secretary.
The company paid taxes last year upon a
personal property valuation of $1,300,000, on
the basis of 40 per cent of the true value,
which would make the true value of that
properly, accepting those figures as being
accurate, $3,250,000.
' A member of the Real Estate Exchange,
upon bring Informed of the amount of the
return made, said to a Bee reporter that
he did not see how the company could re
concile those figures with the well known
fact that It has $5,000,000 of stock quoted at
90 cents on the dollar, and $2,500,000 of
bonds.

SAVES MONEY FOR INDIANS
Commissioner Jones Makes Rnllnar
Whleh Will Do Away with
Conrt Fees.
Senator Millard was advised yesterday
by Commissioner Jones of the Indian bureau
that In future the bureau would not re
quire the natural guardians of children of
Omaha and Winnebago Indians to file a
bond before the share of the allotment
made to them would be paid.
This action is the result of an earnest
protest made by the Indians against what
they considered an injustice. When the
rules for the payment of the allotment
were made public It woa found that In case
of mlnorB guardians should be appointed
by the count" court of Thurston couuty and
bond given ijy them efore the money
should be , Id to the guardians. When it
came to getting these appointments it was
discovered that It would require from $25 to
$30 In fees in the case of each minor. The
share of the allotment is about $80, ao that
more than 25 per cent would have to be
paid in fees.
The Injustice of the proceeding was made
the subject of a communication to The
Omaha Bee at the time the payment waa
begun and the Indians protested to Wash
ington and appealed to Senator Millard.
When the matter was first brought to his
attention Commissioner Jones said that the
requirement jof the bond was for the pur
pose of protecting the department, to make
certain that the money would reach the
proper person. He has now decided that
the parents of the minors may receive the
money without giving bond, which in the
case of minors will save a considerable por
tion of the allotment to the Indians.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 3. (Special Tele
gram.) W. A. Jones, commissioner of In
dian affairs, today wired Instructions to
Agent Matthewson to pay money due minor
heirs of Omaha Indians to parents without
guardianship papers when In his judgment
the parents are capable of caring for the
funds, but In cases of orphan minor heirs
money due them will be returned to the
United States treasury to be held In trust
until they become of legal age.

CALLS THE WESTBERG BLUFF
City Rnarlneer Gives Some Facta He-
aiardlna; Pay Roll of In
spectors. 'If the pay roll of the engineering de
partment is Incorrect, why should Comp
troller Westberg approve It under any
consideration; and, having approved it,
what ground has he for any objection?"
This was the question asked by City
Engineer Rosewater yesterday as apply
ing to the statement of Mr. Westberg, pub
lished in an evening paper, charging that
the number of inspectors employed In tho
department of engineering was excessively
large and that the salary, roll for the last
month was unreasonable.
"This is a regular thing with Mr. West
berg at this particular time of year," con
tinued Mr. Rosewater, "and it ia all for po
litical effect. He knows as well as anybody
Just what the duties of all of those men are
and if he did not he would not be a con
scientious member of the Board of Public
Works, for he has approved the payment of
their salaries many timea before. One of
the very men he has mentioned haa been
on the pay roll of this department for no
less than six years and Mr. Westberg has
regularly appioved payment of hla salary
and included his name In the appropriation
ordinance. That man is Mike Lee.
"I notice that Mr. Westberg is quoted as
having said that be agreed tn the pay roll
because I promised that I would cut oft
three men. That Is not true, for I made
him no promise at all; I simply told him
that two of the men whose names were on
the pay roll had been notified some days
ago that their services would not be re
quired after the first of this month, and
therefore they would not appear on the
next pay roll.
"But supposing that Mr. Westberg bad
agreed to the pay roll under that under
standing, what Justification could he have
for that? If the pay roll ia incorrect it
should not be paid, and cutting three names
from It In the future Is not going to make
the roll for last month correct."

DICKINSON LEAVES OMAHA
Goea to Kansas City to Tnke I'p
New Work with Orient
Road.
Edward Dickinson, former general
manager of the Union Pacific, vice presi
dent and general manager of the Kansas
City, Mexico & Orient, left the city last
night for Kansas City, where he enters
at once upon his new work. Mr. Dickin
son says no time will be lost in getting the
construction work of the new road in full
swing and then operations will be pushed
until the road Is completed, which prob
ably will be two years or more hence. Mr.
Dickinson will have full charge and di
rection of the construction work.
It was given out at President Burt's
office yesterday again that no further
plana for the filling of Mr. Dickinson's
office had been made and that In accord
ance with the president's recent announce
ment he would assume charge of it. The
report from Denver that the president
would appoint a general superintendent
within a few days to assist him was pro
nounced a canard.
The presence of W. L. Parks, superin
tendent of the Wyoming division, around
headquarters Inspired a report that hn
was being considered In connection with
the mooted general superintendency, but
this rumor Is said to have no foundation
In fact. Mr. Park came to Omaha, as the
superintendents of other divisions of the
road did, to attend the complimentary din
ner given by President Burt to Mr. Dick
inson Saturday night.

wearing the best hat in the country for
the price you paid, whether it cost 75c,

that-anybody will go to a hat store and

FAVOR SYSTEMATIC COUNTING
Committee Chairmen Would I.Ike

t
Though formal Instructions or requests
have not. been prepared aa yet for the
election boards it is tho preference of both
Chairman Goss of the republlca county
committee and Vice Chairman C. L. West
of the democratic committeo that the count
of the ballota Tuesday night after the polls
close be made systematically at all polling
places, the count beginning with the state
ticket and going down the list in us reg
i.. dr Thla will facilitate the com
pilation of statistics by the newspapers aa
well as save confusion at the various head-i,irian-i
lesson tauKht In previous years
when the public was kept in doubt concern
ing all tickets because some or tne election
boards were counting the congressional
ticket while others were Ignoring It until
the state ticket waa disposed of, and still
others counting some of the minor tickets
In which they chanced to be Individually
Interested.
Chairman Goss states that he anticipates
quite a demand to have the congressional
ticket counted first, but that In view of the
fact that the early morning editions of the
newspapers go out Into the state be favors
herlnnlnc the count with the governor and
going down the list In regular order.
