DEMORALIZES POLICE FORCE
troatco Board Reduces Patrol Force on
Duty to Thirty-Eight.
Thirteen men on leave of absence
Dflle.r Daraacsewnkl RMltn) Bfrm
I Too Marh Work and Infer,
talirty Tmr of
Sixteen policemen constitute the force
'patrol ln Omaha today. Lest night twenty-
two walked the beats that are supposed
I to guard the lives and property of the sleep
I log citlaens.
' Of a total forre of fifty-two patrolmen
i thirteen are absent on have. Yesterday one
' wore, officer added hie voluntary resignation
to the Hat of vacant-lee, ao that the total
'available force of patrolmen for aervlce Is
; reduced to thirty-eight.
The resignation yesterday la the fruit of
the wholesale dismissal without hearing of
; patrolmen by the Hoard of Fire and Police
i Commissioners. Too much work and too
I much uncertainty aa to the tenure of his
1 position are the reasons assigned by the
loffloer for handing over hla club, star and
-key to Chief Donahue.
, At roll all Tuesday evening Nicodemua
; Dargaciewskl. one of the old-timers on the
force, tendircd his verbal resignation to
Captain Hayes. Yesterday he handed
hla written resignation to Chief Donahue.
Hla reasons set out are those given above.
Pargacsewskl's resignation reduces the
number of patrolmen on the police force
to fifty-one. Of these thirteen are absent
on leave and the remainder are divided
Into two shifts, sixteen day and twenty
three for the night.
Dargaczewskt said that for the last
month he had been allowed but five supper
hours, because of the amount of work ha
was compelled to do by Sergeant Hudson,
under whose orders he worked.
Ko Time to Eat.
"Hanson had It In for me, and I could
get no relief," said he. "When I waa
guarding the Union Pacific gates he would
not allow me to atop an Instant for reat.
It waa just like a penitentiary down there,
and the mosquito were ao tmd that my
hands were aore all the time. On my beat
In Bheely It waa the same way. When I
waa aent there under the old board I waa
allowed to remain all night. But under the
new arrangements I would be brought In
from there to the business district at mid
night and had to make the trip during my
aupper hour. After I waa downtown I
would not bo given fifteen minutes In
which to eat. At present from midnight
until morning the people In Bheely have
no police protection, and those are the
hours protection Is needed.
"Another reason for my resignation waa
the uncertainty of my position. Every
time two patrolmen meet the aole topic of
conversation la who will be Bred next?
This has been going on for the last two
months and no policeman can do good
work under such circumstancea. Tho six
teen men discharged, with possibly one
exception, were the best men on the force
and I could not stand the uncertainty
of the thing. There were no charges
against them and anyone la liable to be
discharged at a moment's notice. Tho
board has ruined the police department
and there are very few members of It who
era at all satisfied with the way things are
being run. I have nothing to aay against
Chief Donahue. He has done the best
fce could for the men and everyone believes
In him, but he can do nothing with auch
a board to give him orders."
Ko Shortage in Find.
"There la no shortage In the police fund,"
aid Mayor Moorea yesterday, "and
there would not be any overlap at the end
of the year If the department waa continued
to that time at ita former strength. The
comptroller's statement, showing that there
would be an overlap of some $1,900, la mis
leading from the fact that It Includes the
full amount of the expense of the alarm
aystem for the two mouths, while one-half
of that la paid from the Are fund. In the
same manner the estimated expenses are
increased by charging the whole amount of
the aalaries of the membera of the board
to the police fund, when half should come
out of the fire fund. Then, too, I think
the estimate of $2,000 for miscellaneous
bills la too high and au. sure the amount
will not exceed $1,600."

Although the city Council hss approved
the contract with C. W. Partridge for tho
construction of the market house In spite
of the veto of the mayor, a still further
attempt will be made by Capitol avenue
property owners and other Interested citl
aens to prevent the location of a market
on the proposed site.
Although It Is nxpected that owners
of property on Capitol avenue will appear

Retail Grocers' association la alio deeply

The present Intention la to enjoin the
mayor, city comptroller, treasurer, Board
of Public Worka and C. W. Partridge, the
contractor, from taking any further steps
toward the erection of the proposed build
ing on Capitol avenue. The petition to the
court, which will be signed by a number
of tbe property owners on Capitol avenue
In the vicinity of the site selected, will be
baaed upon the grounds that the location
Is not suitable for market purposes for
the reason that It Is too far from the
grocery and commission houses; that It
would be prejudicial to the best Inter
ests of the community to locate a mar
ket In the public street and that the
building aa planned would be but a make
shift at best and would not fully meet the
requlrementa of thla city aa a market
place and, therefore, the expenditure of
nearly, $12,000 would be unwarranted ex
travagance, particularly as the general
fund Is In no condition at thla time to bear
any auch expenditure, while the money
la so urgently needed for other purposes.
It Is also argued that the contract as
drawn la weak and faulty and the specifica
tions sre auch aa to leave the city at the
mercy of the contractor.

of thrilling episodes, will be seen at the
Boyd tonight for but a single perform
ance. The eacape of tha heroin by Jump

by climbing down a water sprout; the elec

several of the thrilling scenes. Tbe story
told by the play la that of a young woman
brought up amid vicious surroundings, but
who thwarts the schemes of her fellows
for the downfall of a wealthy family.
Everything enda happily.

PARKER SAYS HE WAS SHOCKED
Placed Hla Hand on Rlelrle Light
Pole and Became la
Report waa made to City Electrician
Schurlg yeaterday morning of an accident in
which it la alleged J. W. Parker, who Uvea
at 219 North Thirteenth atreet, received a
serious electric shock. As the case waa
atated to Mr. Schurlg, Parker placed his
hand on tbe electric light pole at the corner
of Thirteenth atreet and Capitol avenue
while atandlng on the sidewalk at that place
about I o'clock yeaterday morning and from
mere contact with the pole received a
shock so aevere that he waa unconscious
for more than two hours.
Mr. Schurlg says this statement appears
to him highly improbable from the fact
that there la a porcelain circuit-breaker on
the pole at a height of ten feet two Inches
from the waik, which would effectually abut
off any electric current from the portion
of the pole below that point.
Parker, It ia atated. intends to present a
claim agalnat the electric light company

E. F. Schurlg Is now engaged In the
preparation of plans for placing the wires
of the city alarm system underground be
fore next spring, when It Is required all
overhead wtrea shall be removed from tbe
streets In the central district of the city.
It would not be practicable to atring the
city's wires In any of tha condulta In
which there are cables carrying high
potential currents, but arraugements have
been made whereby they can be placed In
tha telephone company's conduits through
out the prohibited district. In some por
tions of the city thla plan haa already
been adopted, but in order to complete tbe
work it will bs necessary for tha city to
construct lateral ducts at a number of the
atreet cor acre extending from tha man
holts of the telephone company'a aystem
to the sidewalk, tor tbe purpose of making
the box connections. The total expenaa of

Omaha Jobbers and the South Omaha
stock yarda and packing house will be
the gainers by the result of a move of tha
Wabash. For many montha traffio ar?
rangementa have existed between the
Wabash and the Chlcago-Oreat Western
whereby the shippers and merchants of
North Missouri could reach St. Joseph
over a combination of the two roads as
cheaply or cheaper than they could come
to Omaha. On Tuesday the St. Joseph
Commercial club waa notified that the
Wabash had withdrawn Ita joint traffic
rates with the Great Western. This means
that to get In and out of St. Joseph over
the two lines the sum of two locals muBt
be made, which is considerably more than
the through rate over the Wabash from
Omaha. As a result there will be consid
erable business added to the local jobbing
and stock yards trade.
Unties Are Divided.
It la pretty well aettled around Union
Pacific headquarters that no new general
manager will be employed to take the
place of Edward Dickinson for some tlmo
to come, if at all. While President Burt
haa nominally assumed the duties of gen
eral maanger, It Is generally accepted that
what functions did not already center In
the president will be distributed among
three or four other offlclala. These are
of a routine character and even they will
be , generally supervised, though not
actually performed, by Mr. Burt.
During Mr. Dlcklnkon'a Incumbency a
great deal of the routine of hla office, per
taining chiefly to transportation matters,
fell to Superintendent of Transportation
Buckingham, but since Mr. Dickinson's
departure Mr. Buckingham haa come into
possession of a greater amount of the gen
eral manager's work, ao much ao In fact,
that he haa transferred hla office to the
rooms formerly used by the general man
ager, and aa evidence of the permanency
of this arrangement the words, "General
Manager," which used to appear on the
door leading Into where Mr. Dickinson waa,
have been erased and supplanted by this
Inscription: "Superintendent of Transpor
tation." With Mr. Buckingham occupying thla
office, adjoining that of the president, it
Is understood he now stands next In au
thority to that official. It la understood
that the functions of the chief engineer
and superintendent of motive power, and
perhapa another official, have been widened
slightly by this change, each taking on a
little more routine than he had before Mr.
