HANGS IN RIVERVIEW PARK
Join Bartel round Dead Under Bridge by
Sunday Echool Pupil.
CORONER'S JURY SAYS IT WAS SUICIDE
Dead Man Waa a Cudahy Packing
House Foreman and Leave Sick
Wife aad Family of Small
Suspended by the neck from a rope tied
to a small bridge In Rivervlew park, the
body of John Bartel, a foreman for the
Cudahy racking company, was found yes
terday afternoon by two little boys, Ed
ward Talm and King Gaston, member of
a picnic party composed of the pupils of
the Sunday school of 8t. John's church.
The boys notified Park Policeman Rupp,
who In turn notified Coroner Bralley. An
Inquest wa held last night, the Jury de
ciding that Bartel had taken his own life,
for unknown reasons.
The bridge Is In the southeast section
of the park and Is about thirty feet long
and almost hidden from the notice of
passersby by a heary growth of trees and
wild vines. From the point where the
body was hanging It Is about ten feet to
the ground. To end his life Bartel had
used a new clothesline. This he had. after
doubling It, carefully tied around a girder
extending from the bridge. lie then
slipped a loop of the doubled rope around
Ms neck. Evidently he then sat down on
the girder and Jumped off. His head was
about two feet from the floor of the bridge
and his feet about a foot and a half from
the ground. His coat ho had hung on a
piece of timber under the bridge and be
neath this he had left his black derby hat.
In all probability the man's neck was
broken by the fall, as there was no Indi
cation of a struggle. Except a slight pro
trudence of the tongue, the man's face
looked natural. The hands were hanging
by the sides and the fingers were not even
Children Play Above Corpse.
The teachers and pupils of the Sunday
school had selected this spot for their
picnic, believing It to be one of the pret
tiest places In the park. They had played
and ran and romped over the bridge and
around It for several hours before the body
waa discovered. It Is believed the man
hanged himself between 10 and 11 o'clock.
He waa found shortly after 2 o'clock.
Bartel purchased the rope about 10
o'clock yesterday morning from Joseph
Kuncl, who runs a meat market at the end
of the Thirteenth street car line. He
placed the rope In his pocket and then
walked Into the park. Shortly after he met
Officer Rupp and asked him several ques
tions about the site of the park and re
marked that he had never been there be
fore. That was the last seen of Wm alive.
On a small piece of cardboard, evidently
torn from a pasteboard box, was the name
"J. Bartel" and the address " Twenty-first
and Bancroft streets." From this his
Identity was established, the card being
found beneath the bridge.
Leaves Wife and Family.
The dead man lived at 2707 South Twenty
first street with his wife and three chil
dren. The eldest of the latter la i years
old. Mrs. Bartel Is sick in bed and the
news of her husband's death has made
her worse. None of the family could offer
any reason for the suicide.
Bartel left home Friday morning, telling
Mrs. Bartel that he was going to draw his
check from the packing company and that
be would be back within an hour. Last
night, when he failed to come home, the
police of South Omaha were asked to find
him. His father-in-law met' hlra Friday
morning about 11 o'clock end Bartel said
he had drawn 2J and was then going home.
When the body was found only, 25 cents In
money was In the pockets. Bartel was SO
years of age and waa ' a member of the
drill team of Ancient Order of United
Workmen lodge No. 263.

POPULISTS CALL CONVENTION
Decide to Nominate Judicial Ticket,
While Democrats Still Oc
The populists have broken Into the Judicial
fight and will hold a convention Saturday,
August 22, at Washington hall for the pur
pose of nominating candidates for 'Judges
of the district court. The condition of the
party In this Judicial district Is shown by
the fact that there Is no provision for dele
gates from any of the counties composing
the district, but the nominations are to be
made by a mass meeting at which the cre
dentials are to be solely the presence of
the voter In the meeting. As an Induce
ment for being on earth at all the chair
man and secretary of the committee have
Issued an argument and invitation in which
they sny: '
"The bar of the district nominated six
republicans and one democrat. We fear
that this ticket will not enlist the enthusi
astic support of populists and democrats.
A nonpartisan ticket or a less partisan
t'eket can be elected. The republican con
vention nominated some good men and
some who must be defeated If the honor
and Integrity of the bench 1 to be main
tained. We think the Dennlnon machine
ccntrolled Its action. The democratic con
vention Is to be selected by committee with
a view to nominating the bar ticket. We
desire to give the people of the district,
regardless of party, a voice In the Judicial
"Therefore we Invite antl-machlne re
publicans and democrats, union labor, pop.
ullsts, prohibitionists, socialists, tha Mu
nicipal league, the Real Estate exchange
and all the Independent voters of the dis
trict to meet together and nominate men
who are honest and who are not afraid.
"We expect those who take part to favor
"A nonpartisan Judiciary chosen from all
"An antl-machlne ticket hostile to the
political methods of either the republican
or democratic machines.
"A ticket made up of men who will
neither accept favors from nor grant fa
vors to public service corporations.
Ed P. Smith has returned to the city, but
o far has made no statement as to what
he will do In regard to calling the Judicial
committee of the democratic party for the
purpose of calling a convention to make
nominations for Judges of the district court
There is a new factor in the field, and that
Is Sarpy county. This Is the only normal
democratic county In the district, and It Is
beginning to feel that It should receive
some recognition at the hands of the party.
The lawyers who framed the slate went to
a republican county and took a republican
for a democratic nominee and some of the
people In Sarpy county are wonriarirxr h

HAY CROP. LOOKS PROMISING
Reports Received by Omaha Whole
salers' Association Indicate
Prosldent A. O. Knapp of the Omaha
Wholesale Hay Dealers' association looks
for a good hay crop this year. "From re
ports which we have received there Is every
prospect for a good hay ylold In Nebraska,"
ha said. 'The early rains have made the
grass unusually heavy and fn the western
part of the state, ao I am told, the grass
and alfalfa are very much better than
usual. This week Is the first for a heavy
run of the new crop. There have been
cars In for nearly a month, but very few
until the last week. The hay Is coming In
good condition, usually, although some
from tha bottom lands which have been
flooded was a little dark. The last year
hay seems to be all out of the way, al
though there may be some of It stacked
In places. The new hay is now coming
In sufficient quantltlea to supply the local
demand and the prices are about the same
as for the same period last year.
"The hay we are getting now cornea from
the Elkhorn valley. Some dealers say that
there Is too much water on the land around
O'Neill, Basaett, Inman and Newport, but I
do not think the hay has been hurt. The

Amutemect Committee for Ak-8ar-Ben
Flam for Congress of Wonders,
GOOD ATTRACTIONS ALREADY DOWN
Pony Moor Again Has Charge of
the Freaks and Sensations--Dates
are Set for tha
Parades and Ball.
The Ak-Bar-Ben amusement committee
which has charge of the fall carnival Is
hard at work making arrangements for the
same. They began on June 1, but until a
few days ago the time was taken up with
correspondence with the various attrac
tions which it la hoped to secure. The
preparations have now reached such a
stage that it la possible to speak of the
general points of the exhibition.
"The carnival will be better in every way
this year than ever before," said Pony
Moore, who haa had charge of the negotia
tions with the various attractions. "The
general features will be the same and there
will be no departure from the policy pur
sued last year, but we Intend to secure, a
higher grade of Midway and other exhibi
tions. This year the free acts will be a
big feature of the carnival, much more
than they were last year. We have secured
five big acts for free exhibition. The best
act last year was the diving elks. We are
waiting to book a number of attractions
until after the close of the traveling season.
Just now we are concerned chit fly In get
ting a line on the good possibilities. We
have already secured a trained wild animal
show and twelve other leading features.
Negotiations are pending with a firm own
ing a captive balloon, making regular
ascents. Defore the bookings are complete

Kansas City to personally inspect new
things sprung this summer for the first
time, and which, If they are worthy will

Old Location to He Used.
The carnival grounds will be the same In
location and of nearly the extent as last
year. The addition which is being made
to the telephone building' will take away
two lots which were used to advantage last
season. The fence will not be carried up
Douglas street to Twentieth as was done
last year, and another loss in space will I
be caused by the fence of St. Mary Magda- j
len's church. These, however, are small
compared to the total area enclosed in the
fences. The gates probably will be located
as formerly. The management Is busy
booking stalls for exhibiting merchants and
manufacturers. There will be 200 booths
and already about fifty of these have been
taken, among the list being all the big de
The dates for the carnival are to be
October 1 to 10, inclusive, these making
practically certain better weather than
was experienced last year. There will be
daily Midway parades from the carnival
grounds. The daylight parade of the Ak-Bar-Ben
will take place probably on the
afternoon of October 7, the great electric
parade on the following evening and the
Ak-Sar-Ben ball Is set for the evening of
October . The amusement committee this
year consists of Fred Metz, chairman, and
R. C. Howe, C. N. Robinson, Luther

THIRTY YEARS IN SERVICE
Forecaster Welsh Tells of Develop
ment aad Present Work of
Weather Forecaster Welsh yesterday con
cluded thirty years' continuous service in
the weather bureau, more than a third of
which time has been in Omaha. Mr. Welsh
does not look like a man who had spent
thirty years on the roofs of government
buildings in the wind, sun or rain, looking
for Indications and feeling the pulse of
the anemometer. lie began very young,
and the habit of giving everybody every
thing, which he says Is the motto of the
department, has become constitutional with
"Yes, sir," raid he, keeping an eye out
the window at an acre-small cloud while
he spoke, "I have been in the service for
a long time and I have always worked
hard to make It popular with the people,
and I flatter myself that I have succeeded
to a considerable extent. I think the people
of Omaha understand I have been trying
to make thorn at least that the bureau Is
at their command for any Information
which we can possibly give. I believe that
no one has ever been refused Information
which we could give. When I was first
here the service was undeveloped and peo
ple were Inclined to ridicule it, and it was
comparatively seldom we were called on,
but this condition has gradually changed
until you would be surprised at the amount
of business we do. And that la what
Mr. Welsh joined the service on August 1,
1873, going to the school of Instruction then
maintained In Washington. From there
he went to Milwaukee as assistant. He
first came to Omaha in 1888 and remained
until 1881, when he was ordered to Leaven
worth, Kan., to close out a station there.
He returned In 1893 and has been here ever
There have been great developments In
the service during this time. The weather
bureau was until 1S91 a part of tha signal
corps of the army, but during that year It
was placed In the Agricultural department
When Mr. Welsh first began wind survey-
Ing there were only eighteen telegraphic
stations from-which bulletins were Issued,
while now there are over 200, and In addi
tion the forelgu service maintained by the
United States department. Thirty years
ago there was only one self-registering
instrument, the anemometer, while now
there are a number. The first service
which tha department performs Is the
system of warning signals to vessels at sea
and on the lakes. It is said that during
one season on the lakes the amount saved
to shipping would pay the running expenses
of the bureau for twenty years. The pro
gress now, says Mr. Welsh, is toward the
same perfection, of service to the farmeru.
When he began few indeed of the farming
population were reached by the bulletins,
but now a great advance has been made
through the rural delivery and a still
greater one Is coming with the introduction
of telephones and rural electric lines.

Tells of Great Reception
Past Grand Exalted Ruler George P.
PrnnU returned to the city yesterday
and was busy at his desk catching up with
the mail accumulation of a week.
"The grand lodge this year waa the larg
e.t anri must enthusiastic meeting In the
history of the order," said Mr. Cronk.
"Never have we been entertainea wun
such cordiality as we were In Baltimore.
Tou know, of course, that Cincinnati was
chosen as the next meeting plaoe. - The
order held Its grand lodge thera In 1897
and the city la most popular with Elks
from all parts of the country, and the
lodge next year will without doubt hava a
most successful meeting. We were all
much congratulated at the rapid growth
of the Elks during the year, which was
27,000. The order now has 155,000 members.

234 printed pages, went rather more Into
detail than Is usual and I received many
compliments on It. After the conclusion
of the grand lodge we spent two days
visiting In Philadelphia and then came
west. Mrs. Cronk stopped at Lake Okobojl
for a few days with the cnuaren.
