fVesMent Burt wss In an unusually good
fcumor shen he arrived yesterday morn
ing after hi conference with labor of- ,
flrlals In New York City relating to the I
strike. It was with a smile and a buoyant
manner that he Informed a reporter who
tnet him at Vnlon station that there was
nothing to be said about the strike, at tho
action taken by the conference was well
known and nothing could be added till the
Hut there the affability of the railroad
president stopped. Having said pleasantly
that he didn't rare to talk, he resented
further attempts to Involve him in a con
versation. He had stepped off the Overland
Limited train Into the arms of a reporter
and the latter stuck as far as Tenth and
Farnant streets. After that first question
bad been asked and answered, however,
Mr. Burt became suddenly afflicted with
ome aural difficulty and to all outward
appearance wha unable to hear anything
that was being said to him. Queries ad
dressed from a distance of about two foet
awoke not a ripple of recognition or con
sciousness on hla placid face. He simply
would not talk.
Mrs. Burt accompanied her husband and
was a silent but amused witness of the
attempted extraction. The two went di
rectly to their borne on Thirty-ninth
atreet. Mr. Burt came to the office later
In the day.
Conference In Omaha.
The arrival of President Burt has started
the strikers guessing on what day the
conference will be continued here. Hardly
before the middle of next week la the
general conclusion, as not all the partiea
to It will reach here before about Tuesday.
E. F. Kennedy, president of the local lodge
of boiler makers, and Dave O'Donnell,
president of the boiler makers' helpers,
telegraphed that they would leave New
York last Wednesday, which should bring
them here Friday. John Plocum, president
of the International Brotherhood of Black,
smiths, has notified Mr. Kline here that
be will reach Omaha Saturday. Tom Wil
son, fourth vice president of the Inter
national Association of Machinists, has
some speeches to make and cannot get In
Very significant Is considered the action
of Mr. Slocum in asking Mr. Kline to as
semble here representatives of the black
smiths from all striking points by Saturday
to present the cases of the Individual loca
tions. This Is considered to show plainly
that the thing Is all settled save the de
tails, which the men themselves must ar
range. The blacksmiths will come from
Cheyenne and Kansns City and those nt
Denver have asked Mr. Kline to present
their case. Mr. Slocum wlBhes them here
when he arrives, so that he may have a
session with them before the conference,
Snnt Urare'a Opinion.
"One doesn't need to be over optimistic
to see that there are nothing but favorable
deductions to bo drawn from what has oc
curred," said Sam Orace, secretary of the
district lodge of machinists. "The ad
journed meeting with the general commit
tees here was not the Idea of the railroad
forces, but our own. We Insisted on that
when our representatives went east. It Is
only a logical proposition that a man from
each point where the strike Is on would
form a body that would know In detail the
Individual needs of each point and the gen
eral desires of all combined. Theae Item
ized things the officials In New York City
in our behalf could not know so well. They
are very capable of carrying on the nego
tiations relative to reaching a settlement,
but when lt comes to arriving at just what
the men want as terms, only the men them
selves from the locations involved can
know. The natural conclusion to reach Is
that it has been agreed to have a settle
ment, and now they are coming west to
bave the men themselves dictate the
Florida and the Southeast.
The Louisville & Nashville railroad and
connections have again placed in service
the famous Florida Limited between St.

MURDER OF AN OMAHA MAN
Inquest at Peoria Fails to Bring Out Clear

TWO ACCUSED MEN fLEAD SELF-DEFENSE
One f the Prisoners Insists that

oa tho Dead Body.
The body of James P. Leary, the Omaha
man who was murdered at Porta, III., last
Friday, arrived yesterday and waa taken
to the family home at 1920 South Fifteenth
street. Mr. Leary was killed In a fight In
which several men participated and the
Teorla authorities are having difficulty In
getting at the facts In the case, as will be
seen from the following report of the In
quest tsken from the Peoria Journal of
The most Important facts established by
the coroner's Jury was that Monk and Rog
ers were the principals In the fight which
resulted in the death of l-eary. What part
Powells took In the affair Is not known
perfectly, but It seems probable from the
evidence that he will be held as an ac
complice. Charles Baudank, the room-mate of
Monk, was the most Important witness rut
upon the stand. He tem tried that on the
night of che murder Monk and Rogers came
to his room at shortly after 12 o clock and
told him of the fight which they had had.
This evidence tending to Incriminate Monk
will be a stumbling block for the state,
since the former witnesses In the esse posi
tively identified Powells as the man who
was engaged with Rogers In the fight with
Matore of the InJnrles.
Another peculiar fact which was elicited
In the coroner's Jury waa the nature of the
Injuries from which the man died. Drs.
Well and McFadden testified on- the stand
to the fact that they had found no marks
upon the dead man's body to Indicate that
he had come to his death through the
lolence of the beating which was admin
istered, but that they found upon the
temple two delicate Incisions such as
might have been Inflicted by an awl or
some other pointed Instrument. The doctors
t stifled that the wound might have come
from the deceased falllnc. when attacked.
upon a board containing uncovered nails.
The only authentic storv o the flfcht un
fortunately Is that told by the defendants
themselves. According to their own ac
count there were two fights, one on the
railroad tracks and another at the foot of
Morton street. Rogers has each time as
serted In talking of the affair that Leary
started the fight by kicking Monk and
that it wa In an endeavor to defend them
selves that the fight began. He states fur
ther that after the struggle In the railroad
;rds I,oary picked ntmself up and started
to run up Morton street. He and Monk fol
lowed and fell upon him again, all rolling
together on the ground.

Deputy Marshal Arrives with Abont
Fifty Indians for Witnesses
Deputy Marshal Allan baa Just returned
from one of his periodical trips over the
northeastern portion of the state, bringing
with him an unusually large assortment of
Indians and a few alleged criminals. There
are over Sfty of th former class, and they
were yesterday lined along both sides of the
third floor corridor of the federal building
awaiting their turn as witnesses before the
grand Jury. Of the latter class the only
new unfortunate Is "Jack". Kenley, who Is

Deputy Allan tells a thrilling story of a
wild ride In the terrific wind of Tuesday
night. There were four of them In a double
carriage coming across the plains of Santee
agency on their way to BloomflelS and about
six miles north of that town when the at
mosphere struck them. Allan says as near
as he can remember he left the carriage
very quickly and went some ten feet away
and stood en his ear. Another occupant,
he asys, apparently In even a greater hurry,
made bis exit through the top of the car
riage. The other two men were discovered
later tangled up with each other and with
the vehicle on top of both. For some
strange reason none of them was seriously
hurt and they managed to patch up the dam
age and continue their Journey-.

Sunday night Belasco's "The Heart of
Maryland" will be given at the Boyd. It
will be continued over Monday night. No
matinee will be given because of the com
pany's Inability to reach Omaha In time
from Denver. The play la promised with
a better company and the most elaborate
scenic setting it ever had. Alma Kruger
will be seen in the role of Maryland Cal
vert. Miss Kruger . was the first woman
to succeed Mrs. Leslie Carter-In this role.
All of the costumes which are used In
"The Prince of Pilsen" are from designs
made by the celebrated artist, Archie
Gunn, and as there are some twenty odd
changes of dreas for the chorus people.
It can be readily Imagined that when they
are not upon the stage the chorus is a
pretty busy body. This "Prince of Pil
sen" Is reported to be the' biggest musical
comedy success that the stage has seen
In recent years. It Is by the same authors
who wrote the popular '.'King Dodo" and
Is put upon the stags with the greatest
care. The scenes all take place In Nice,
France, at the time of the "Fete dea

winter season. Musically ' there are said
to be more catchy numbers In the score
than are usually to be found in the so
called comic operas and the company Is
said to be one of the largest and best
balanced that is touring the country. . "The
Prince of Pilsen" Is to be the attraction

A Now Discovery that Kills tho Germ

Pretty nearly all the hair preparations for
dandruff have some merit In allaying itch

that recognises what causes dandruff, fall

cause, a little germ and that Is Newbro'a

scalp, down to the hair root, where it saps
that vitality, causing dandruff as it digs up
the scalp into little white scales. Unless
it is destroyed there's no permanent stop

Cohea Attentat to End
Mrs, C. J. Benson, about 27 years of age,
attempted to take her own life yesterday
In room lit of the Millard hotel by
shooting herself In the right breast with a
22-rallber revolver. She was removed to
St. Joseph's hospital.
The would-be suicide went to the hotel
about 1:30 o'clock, registered and asked for
a room. She was given No; 118. About an
hour later a pistol shot rsng through the
corridor and was heard by seversl people
In the halls below. Immediately the bell
on the call board registered and Barney
Bennett, one of the bell boys, responded.
When he arrived at Mrs. Benson's room he
found her seated on the edge of the bed
holding a blood-stained handkerchief to her
breast. In her hand she still held the re
volver. Bennett succeeded In wrenching
the weapon from her and Immediately re
ported the shooting to the clerk.
As the bell boy was leaving her room
Mrs. Benson handed htm a note which she
bad written, thinking that her wound would
be mortal. Later she snatched the missive
from the bell boy's band and tore It Into
pieces. Dr. Walker, who happened to be In
the hotel office, hastily cared for the woman
and later had her sent to the hospital. Her
wound Is not considered serious unless com
plications should result.
Mrs. Benson, who Is pretty. Is said to
have had some trouble with her husband
during the last few days. Mr. Benson bas
begun divorce proceedings against ber In
the district court. He Is employed by the
firm of H. Q. Strelght Co., 1017 Howard
Until three weeks ago Mr. and Mrs. Ben
son resided at their home, 2613 Charles
atreet. Tbe ault started by her husband la
said to have made Mrs. Benson despondent
and that is the cause assigned for her act.
Unrequited love Is said to have been the
cause of the attempted suicide ot Miss
Louise Cohen, who resides at Eleventh
atreet and Capitol avenue, at 7:30 yesterday
morning. While unseen by other inmates
of the bouse she took a quantity of cocaine
sufficient to require the services of Police
Surgeon Mick. After her life had been
saved the would-be suicide said she wanted
to die because her affections for her lover
were not returned. After she recovered
from the effects of the drug she was locked
up on tbe charge of being a disorderly per

BLOWS HIS HEAD NEARLY OFF
H. S. Hlbbard Commits Solcldt Within
Few Weeks of His Wed.
H. S. Hlbbard, son of Frank Hlbbard, re
siding near Irvington, committed suicide In
a most sensational manner yesterday by
blowing his head nearly off with a shotgun.
No cause la assigned for the act, as young
Hlbbard was known to be of kindly disposi
tion, and no trouble had arisen with the
members of his household. The man was
32 years of age and unmarried.
Arising yesterday morning, In advance of
the other members Of the family, Hlbbard
went to the blacksmith shop owned by his
father, carrying with him a short-barreled
shotgun. In the early dawn his act waa un
noticed, and the first warning that his rela
tives bad was when 'the echo of the shot
came from the building. Hlbbard is sup
posed to bave placed the weapon In an up
right position" 'upon the floor, rested his
head-on the barrels 'and pulled the trigger
with his hand. ' His "Bead was badly shat
tered by the charge Mich was sent into it
and made a ghastly stfehe. -
Hlbbard waa to"havebeeB wedded to a
prominent 'Irvipgton young woman during
the fore part of February. The arrange
ments for the wedding' were already pre
pared and ' the bridal trip decided upon.
The victim of his own hand waa possessed
of considerable wealth. '
Coroner Bralley was notified of the shoot
ing and went to the-scene of tbe tragedy.
He will not hold 'an inquest, as the evi
dence clearly indicates that Hlbbard took
his own life. The deceased is survived by
his father, two brothers one of whom is
engaged In the commission business in
South Omaha and' the other employed In
the Northwestern depot in this city and a
sister, whose residence Is In Lincoln, Neb.
