Consideration for the feelings of Miss
Ruth Bryan led the girls of the Delta
Gamma sorority, of which Miss Bryan is a
member, to abandon Saturday night a plan
which for audacity could have had Incep
tion only In the minds of mediaeval robber
barons or romantic school girls. The Delta
Umnma girls had plans actually and fully
laid for the kidnaping of William Homer
Leavltt. They wanted to prevent his mir
rlage to Miss Bryan and hit on this Idea
to effect it
At the eleventh hour some of the girls
weakened. "Think what it would mean to
Ruth," one suggested. "That's so,"
chorused some of the more timid of the
conspirators, and a few minutes more of
discussion led to the resolve by the girls
to let the wedding take Its course.
The Objection which Miss Bryan's sorority
sisters urge against the man whom she
chose for husband is that he is too matter-of-fact.
A year ago Miss Uryan was
the most popular girl among the Lincoln
Delta Gams. The other girls worshiped
her, to use their own expression, and the
man they would have selected for her
would be tall and Gibsonesque. Mr.
Leavltt Is short and squatty far from an
Ideal according to their way of thinking.
The project of preventing or delaying the
wedding had its origin a week ago, when
the Delta Gammas held the annual house
warming at Lincoln. A ecore of Omaha
girls were there. The wish was parent of
the project. "He's not the kind of man
Ruth ought to have at all," whispered the
older girls among themselves. "I declare, I
Wish something could bo done to stop the
wedding," chhjied In another. "Don't you
suppose we could do something to stop it?"
suggested a more venturesome member.
Then the talk grew serious and definite.
Conspiracy the Result.
The upshot of it was that a meeting was
agreed on for Omaha. Only the more
courageous and true-blue girls were asked
to attend. In the emergency the girls
sought the aid of - the men at the univer
sity. Their help was solicited In an In
definite way. All last winter during party
season, when the girls agreed to dispense
with expenditures by escorts for carriages,
it was understood that when the oppor
tunity offered the men could be relied on
to do a great favor In return for the con
slderaton shown their pocketbooks. This
was the opportunity. They were asked to
stand ready to do a bold deed without
questioning the propriety and a promise
In every instance was exacted.
At the Omaha meeting a few days ago the
conspirators decided on kidnaping. In de
tail the plan was to Inform Mr. Leavltt
that Miss Bryan desired to see him at once
and In the .carriage which was to be at the
door to have him driven to a cave south of
the city, trusting on the darkness to pre'
vent the groom-fo-be from observing that
he was not being driven t the Bryan rest

The university men were to he commis
sioned to employ several ruffians for reten
tion of Mr. Leavltt when he made the dis
covery that deception had been effected. It
was not later than afternoon when the ring'
leaders In the plot developed what the
ancient Latin used to call frlgidus pedibus
and remembered what would be the feel- L
lngs of their sorority sisters if the wedding
were delayed under such sensational cir
cumstances. So late was the plan abandoned
that the Omaha girls aware of It were not

When the Bryans declined to sanction the
marriage they were plain spoken In the in
formation that they would not help to bring
the wedding to pass. Mr. Bryan, so the
Delta Gamma girls say Miss Bryan con
fided to them, would not co-operate to the
extent of furnishing the required money
for the purchase of the trousseau.
"Papa forgot," chuckled Miss Bryan to
friends, "that all these years when he gave
me small presents, and sometimes large
ones, of money, I didn't spend It foolishly,
but put the money in the bank on interest.

That to which a man's thoughts turn In

he worships. Christianity goes Into the

crisis the mind will take the channel
maiked by previous thought. Our minds

things that debune and debauch.

How many renders ever stop to think
how Important a part In the development
of the city Is played. by Its educational In
stitutions. So accustomed are ( we to re
gard industry as embodied in the manu
facturing of mater al things that we almost
entirely lose sight of the training ot the
mind that greatest of all tools employed
in the conqiest of nature. Yet how much
greater is the task of giving shape and
tone and polish to that raw product the
untutored mind. What a vast compass Is
embodied In this task! What a field for
Industry, indeed! Yet In this field of In
dustry Omaha is favored with scores of In
stitutions In their various special branches
and the enormous part they play may
perhaps be partially conceived by citing a
slnglo instance, that of the Omaha Com
mercial college, which is no doubt scarcely
exaggerated when this school has an en
rollment annually of over 1,000 pupils, and
here let us pause to consider what this
large enrollment means for Omaha. To
begin with, It brings to the city not less
than I2D0.000 a yea;-, distributed among our
merchants, theaters, churches and private
families. Only recently the Y. M. C. A.
took in a dub, consisting of ninety mem
bers, from Its students, nnd so the institu
tion is duly sowing the seeds of prosperity
in Omaha's field of commerce. Score and
scores of ex-students will be found among
the business and professional men of tho
city, all of whom were Induced to come
to Omaha and have aided in swelling its
proportions. Among such men are Mayor
Koutsky of South Omaha, K. F. Brailey
county coroner; I. J. Dunn, attorney; Mr
Flack, vice president of the City Savings
bank, and hosts of other who have becomo
prominent in Omaha and South Omaha,
and in fact there Is scarcely a business
house In the city, whether it be a bank, a
real estate office, insurance office, packing
house, railroad company or a wholesale or
retail establishment, that does not employ
from one to forty ex-students as stenog
raphers, bookkeepers and telegraph oper
When we bear In mind that the Omaha
Commercial college has been engaged in
Its great work during the past eighteen
years we cannot but regard the estimate as
conservative that right now in Omaha and
South Omaha at least 3.000 ex-students of
the institution are 'employed, earning an
nual salaries aggregating at least tl,2J0.O00.
These facts are here merely alluded to
to illustrate the vast magnitude acquired
by the institution. It is only natural, then,
for the deduction to follow that in tha
Omaha Commercial college Omi.ha may
pride itself in pointing to one ot the finest
and best equipped schools for mercantile
education to be found west of the Missis
tppl. High In its rank, wiorough in its
qulpment. It Is a proud monument to the
long years of hardship and struggle in
which Rohrbough Bros, fought their way,
often against stupendous odds, unaided by-
bequests or gifts, but by the supreme
power ot their perseverance and faith, like
the pioneers who blazed the way for set
tlement of this western country.
As an educational institution the Omaha
Commercial collego Is an unqualified sue

Integral part in the history and progress
of our city and state.
The college is located at the corner of
"th and Douglas streets, where upon two
spacious floors of 6txl32 feet each the nun
dreds of its young, earnest students are
being trained for the active work of com
mercial life. Everything is conducted on
a broud-guage plan, both as regards the
studies and the opportunities extended to
its students In the way of profitable recrea
tions .and high-class entertainment, em
bracing a college orchestra, college band,
literary society, public literary and musical
entertainments, a gymnasium, foot ball
team, etc., all of which affords ample va
riety to relieve the work of school life from
dullness or monotony. In fact, nothing has
been overlooked In the solicitude ot the
Rohrbough Bros, to make their school a
perfect model and they are to be congrat
ulated upon the success they have achieved.

CIIlTOYlCn GETS INJUNCTION
Proprietor of Diamond Socuti Restraining
Order Against His Enemies.
DENIES RUNNING GAMBLING RESORT
Declares Parties Have Conspired to
Destroy His Business, Which
He Avows Is Legal and
Judge Dickinson Saturday afternoon
granted a temporary writ of Injunction to
V. I. Chucovlch, proprietor of the Diamond
saloon, 1.113 Douglas street, restraining out
siders from Interfering with or attempting
to destroy the business of Mr. Chucovlch,
either overtly or by circulating the damag
ing report that he is conducting a gambling
resort. The chief of police and sheriff, who
are made parties to the Injunction, are re
strained from arresting any patrons of the
place, merely on the plea that they are
frequenting a gambling house. The writ
is returnable Saturday, October 10.
In bis petlWon filed In the district court,
Mr. Chucovlch alleges that he is not con
ducting a gambling business, but Is law
fully and legitimately engaged In running
a saloon and that certain parties have con
spired to drive patrons from his place and
destroy his business by circulating the per
sistent report that his is nothing but a
gambling resort. The petition recites that
the owner of the place has a government
and a city license for running a saloon and
Is doing so without tho attachment of a
gambling or pool room. It states that up
stairs, where tho pool room is said to be,
are some chairs, tables and a telegraph
Instrument specifically for the purpose of
accommodating his patrons with reports of
tho races and other general sporting news
they may wish to have. Not a gambling
devise can be found in the establishment,
says the petition.
Dnnn nnd Ahhott Hired.
Mr. Chucovlch further states that the
persons seeking to injure his business have
employed Attorney I. J. Dunn and Lysle
Abbott, who already have filed two papers,
one In Justice Baldwin's court and the
other In the county court, setting forth
that ho Is conducting a gambling resort,
nnd that these attorneys have further
avowed their determination to continue to
wngo war against his place until they have
put It out of business.
This case coming at this time naturally
attaches some new Interest to the recent
prominence which has come to J. H. Mc
Donald, who is mentioned as one of the
parties engaged in saying that Mr. Chuco
vlch Is running a gambling house. Mr. Mc
Donald has labored aealously to convince
the public that he was to be assassinated
for his vigllanco In this direction and in
discussing an alleged attempt to put him
out of life he got loquacious and is quoted
by a local penny paper ns confessing that
he was once In the gambling business up
to the neck himself.
Strangely enough, the papers containing
Mr. McDonald's alleged interview hud
hardly gotten out on the streets when he
was arrested on the charge of conducting
a gambling house and then when arraigned
in county court he denied what he was al
leged to have voluntarily admitted but a
few hours before.
Aside from these interesting complica
tions a libel suit is another branch which
has grown out of this fight which Chuco
vlch declares is -being made maliciously
against him. I. J. Dunn, the attorney, has
instituted suit against Editor Tanner of
