LINCOLN. April 16 (Special.) Adroga
tion from South Omaha, representing, so
one of the delegates said, the best people
In South Omaha, called upon Governor
Mickey this morning concerning the ap
pointment of a Board of Fire sod Police
Commissioners as provided for In the bill
passed by the recent legislature. The dele
gation numbered about fifteen, among whom
were David Anderson, E. H. Holland, Ed
Weare, T. C. Marsh. C. C. Hosktns, Rev.
M. A. Head, Rev. Wheeler and others.
Among the "and others" was Thomas Bar-
nell, a Lincoln prohibitionist, who guided
the delegation into the presence of his ex
cellency. The delegation refused to state
who It has recommended for posltlona on
the board, though one member did state
that enough names had been presented to
the governor to more than make up the

Is a majority of the board, it makes little
difference about 'the other two. The three
men agreed upon are said to be republicans,
leaving the democrats still unnamed, even
by the committee, which was composed of
both democrats and republicans.
Governor Mickey gave the delegation no
assurance that he would conform to It
wishes. He listened for over an hour to
the merits of the men proposed for the posi
tions and then Informed the delegation that
he would do nothing hurriedly, promising
to thoroughly canvass the situation an'l

Some discussion is being indulged In aa
to what pi ttce will secure the Grand Army
reunion to be held In 194. At the encamp
ment to be held at Fremont, May 13, the
place will be decided upon. It has In the
past been customary for the various towns
that desire the reunion to file bids with the
department In Lincoln. So far, however
no town baa filed a bid. Hastings haa had
the reunion for the last two years and Its
contract expires this fall. Grand Island
Nellgh and Hastings each would like to
play the host, and lately Omaha has come
to the front with a suggestion that It could
royally entertain the old veterans.
But with some of the veterans at least.
Omaha la on the black list and under the
name there la a great big blue line. One
of those objectors watta the reunion to
come to Lincoln, whether Lincoln wants It
nQt An(, ' Llncon tne greategt
voting posts In the state, be hopea it will
land the plum without an effort being made
by the citizens. In- fact it Is the general
impression that the citizens will make no
effort to get the reunion. Not, of courae,
because the people here do not want the
re-unlon, but Just because.
The tents have also been ' put on the
black, list. The old soldiers are tired of
them. While they are not asking any city
to furnish them with couches of down they
fl0 not care to have any city furnish them
with tents In which to sleep. It la the
intention of the veterans, should they de
clde o meet here, to hold the meeting at

Contest for Convict Labor,
The prison labor contract was the cauae
c nQ "na lnl. aicernoon. un
one side waa counsel for the Lee Broom and
Duster company, and on the other side waa
counsel for ex-Warden Davis. The Lee
company holda a contract that entltlea It to
all the convicts It can use, not to exceed
250, at 50 cents a day, and Davla holds a
contract that entitles him to aa many of
ths convicts aa he needs to run his button
factory In the state penitentiary. After
hearing arguments on both sides, the board
took the matur under advisement and will
render a decision probably tomorrow
The broom eompany'a contract la regu
larly signed by the members of the board
and by the governor. Davla' contract Is
signed by all the the members of the board
except Governor Mickey, it also lacka the
signature of Warden Beemer.
Davla recently purchased the button fac
tory from Kasper & Son. Sometime before
the purchase the factory had been shut
down and there was no occasion for corn-
plaint on the part of the broom company,
When Davla began to make arrangements
to open up business it was discovered by the
Lee company that the penitentiary did not
contain enough available laborers for Its
I use and therefore objected to the button
factory using any ot them. In view of the
contract held by the company. Warden
Beemer would not allow Davis to employ
any of the convtcta. Davla took the mat
ter before the Board of Public Lands and
Delegates to Cbarltlea Convention.

KNIGHT STILL IN THE DARK
Strannoni Efforts of Polios Fail to Uncovtr
REWARD FOR BODY INCHES INTEREST
Mrs. Stiles Admits to Chief Donahn
that Knight "Probably Killed His
Wife," bnt Rives No Def
Ths chief developments In the Knight
murder case during the last twenty-four
hours are the admission of Mrs. Lucy Stltcs
thst Knight probably killed his wife, tho
inability ol the police to find the corpse of
the woman and the Interest shown In the
reward of $100 for the body that will be of
fered by the county commissioners.
Chief Donahue said yesterday: "I re
gard the case as one of the hardest to aolve
and bring to a satisfactory conclusion that
has ever confronted the Omaha police. So
far as Knight la concerned he has a great
opportunity to get away, although we are
still hopeful that he may be taken and are
doing everything possible to locate him. If
Mrs. Knight's body is recovered It will be
most likely by accident. Everybody !n
North Omaha and along the bottoms appears
to be looking for the remalna, and I had a
number of Inquiries by telephone this morn
ing asking If the $100 reward money would
be paid. If Knight placed the body In a
trunk, weighted the handles and threw it
In the river, as many think. It will never be
produced. We have learned that there were
a number of trunks about the Knight rest
dence, but whether one of them Is missing
we cannot ascertain."
"Sweating" Mother and Son.
Mrs. Lucy Stiles and her hunchback son,
Melvln Dusenberry, who are charged with
complicity in the crime, continue to main
tain stoutly that they know absolutely noth
ing concerning the making away with Mrs.
Knight, although each day they are sub
jected to a long and thorough "sweating"
process. Wednesday Mrs. Stiles admitted
that in all likelihood Knight killed his
wife, but she persisted In declaring that
he had not taken ber Into his confidence
about It. Her story, however, has many
discrepancies and la carefully guarded.
Although 60 years old and somewhat deaf,
the woman .has a decidedly quick Intellect,
and, not knowing how much her son has
told. Is essaying the sphinx role as much
as possible. ,
Among her declarations is one that she
never was In the Knight home until the
Monday after the disappearance. She de
clares she had no use for Mrs. Knight and
never came near the place, but about the
middle of the preceding week Knight came
to her and made arrangements for her to
clean the house, saying that his wife was
going home to her folks and that she waa
a poor housekeeper, the latter .statement
not being borne out by the facta.
Questions the Old Woman.
"When you came to the house Monday
night to make arrangements to clean up.
didn't you ask what had become of Mrs.
Knight, or did not her husband say any
thing about It?" was asked.
She finally said reluctantly that Knight
had told her to go ahead and work that
Mrs. Knight would not bother her.
Her hurried trip to South Omaha to warn
Knight that the neighbors were demand
ing to know what had become of the wife
aha explains by asserting a natural desire
to wrrn Knight that trouble was brewing
and he ought to produce the woman. He
replied, according to the Stiles woman,
'Oh, don't worry. Don't let them bluff
you out." 'She maintains that she did not
ask Knight where his wife was, having no
curiosity In the matter.
Chief Donahue yesterday received
letters from Chief Ingalla at Cheyenne and
from the sheriff. The letter" from the
chief explained that Knight had met Jen
nie Dusenberry on the street Monday night )
about 9 o'clock, while two policemen
watched the proceeding.
Both men were strictly Interested In ap
prehending Knight and they had photo
graphs of him "both with and without a
mustache; also an accurate description.
But the murderer wore a cap Instead of a
hat, and 'the officers could not make up
their minds to arrest the man. Both were
new men, unfamiliar with tbo Ins and outs
of police life. After the Dusenberry women
had told them who her friend was the offi
cers were so msd they locked her up, but
let her go again. Knight did not reappear.
More of Mrs. Knight's relatives are get
ting anxious about her and a telegram was
received yesterday from W. O. Snyder,
a brother at Coleman, Mich., asking for
news of his sister. The chief replied sim
ply thst they were searching for the body
of Mrs. Knight and trying to arrest
