Innes Gets 'In the Picture.
When Dr. -Milter bad concluded bis re
marks the band played "Arma," an Inter
meiao by Krouse, "Street Bongs," by Nel
son, and last the' grand march, "Omaha
Auditorium," written by" Innes and dedi
cated to the people' of Omaha. This was
Its first performance, and 1ha compliment
fef the bandmaster drew .much applause.
The Auditorium Is largv tliere I no doubt
of that, and the eomolent strains of the
reed Instruments in the lntermeiso could
at times scarcely be beard half the length
' of the ball. The march which followed
with Its bid, bang and crash was. quite
equal to the environment.. Innes and his
band were favorites 'when they left Omaha
tftar the- latest long engagement here.
They return under the best of conditions,
and there Is little doubt the work of these
two week will continue a nd perhaps In

Perhaps as interesting a. view as the open

entrance way. There from quite early In
the evening carriages were pulling up and
well groomed men and 1 women gowned
as the rainbow and Noah was not, were
topping down and disappearing through the
ton door, arches. Other were walking
from the, nearest oar line, . Twelve tall
mighty men of the police under their chief
were part of the decorative background.
Across Fifteenth street the sidewalk was
mass of people, who were indeed Inter
ested in the smart equipages and the cos
tumes, and heard through ths open doors
nd windows the music of the band.
The music for the dances was almost
continuous, , for the band from the stage
played the two steps and an orchestra
from the foot of the hall took up the softer
train of the waltses almost aa an echo.

Argue Deaslsoa Waa Bnl4 Hearing;
Which Bwnrlvva man of Liter?
Wtthow Dm Process
of Law,
C J. Smyth, ataociai counsel for Tom
D&nalson in the habeas corpus case In the
criminal branch of the district court, yes
terday told Judges Day, Troup and
Redick that Governor Mickey's warrant for
Denniaon was illegal first, because he
transcended his rights as ehlef executive
and then because the evidence on which it
wa Issued was admitted by Deputy United
States Marshal Christian of Iowa, Gov
ernor Cummins' special official representa
tive, to be false and because Dennlson was
deprived of his liberty without due process
of law from the fact that he, as an accused,
did not have the right to be beard before
the governor.
Argument In the case was closed yester
day and a decision from tha court Is
promised at 9.30 tomorrow morning;.
Mr. Smyth said were the matter one of
less Importance, not only to De&nlaon, but
to the state of Nebraska, he would feel
Inclined to leave it wherp the able and ex
haustive statement of hi colleague, Mr.
Connell, had placed the question. He there
upon proceeded to emphasize the fact that
It was admitted by Mr. Christian and his
counsel that the evidence submitted to
the governor on which he issued tho extra
dition papers was false and therefore en
titled to absolutely no consideration.
Wrongly Deprived of Liberty.
"I do not propose to cite many authori
ties," Mr. Smyth continued, "but rather
to discuss the principles involved. The only
question actually Involved is whether or
not Tom Dennlson Is deprived of his lib
erty without due process of law. I think
It was established by magna charta that
every man accused of a crime shall be en
titled to a trial by a jury of his peers, and
that principle Is as sacred today as It was
when laid down. And what Is attempted
here? I want to say that the governor of
this state has no authority to Issue a war
rant that shall for one moment deprive a
citizen of hla liberty. The power to ijsue
the warrant for the detention of a citizen
Is a Judicial right and cannot and must
not be usurped.
"What Is due process of lawT It la
a fundamental principle that a . man
shall have a right to be heard. Did Den
nlson have a chance to be heard by the
governor? Unless he did this extradition
wa Issued without due ' process of law.
And If he did not obtain due process of
law before the governor of bis own tat
where can he get his rights .but In the
courts of the star of Nebraska? You
must say that he ho the right to be
heard, and by this court, and at this time.
Whether due process of law has been ex
ercised In this case depends, on whether or
not this man Is a fugitive from Justice,
and the only way that fact can be deter
mined Is by a fair .preponderance of evi
dence. How else can any person arrive at
the facts without giving him a chance to
offer testimony to the very fullest extent
Where Is the AothoWtyt Asks Smith.
E. P. Smith addressed the court shortly
before noon. Ho spoke forcibly of the Im
portance of tho habeas orpus theory and
sold that It madevnot Ul, particle of differ
ence as to Dennlson' guilt or. Innocence of
the crime charged In-Uetermlning hi rights
In the .present maUerThe question pre
sented to this ootirt I by what authority
I he held? " 1 '" ' '' ' ' ''
"The power of the governor to issue, war
rants Is more limited than almost any other
officer," said Mr. Smith:'' "Ho has the right
under the federal statute to Issue a war
rant for a person who Is a fugitive from
justice, but this Is the first Instance I ever
knew of where the Jurisdiction of fact was
not agreed as subject to determination by
the courts of the state. According to all
decisions Tom Dennlson Is entitled to Insist
upon proof that he is a fugltlvo from Justice
and whore is he entitled to insist upon
proof if not before the courts of this state.
It Is admitted that 'this man was not In
the state of Iowa' at the time this crime
was committed; It Is admitted by their mo
tion that perjured testimony was offered to
the governor on which his action was based
and yet they come here and say that this
court Is powerless to ' act or Interfere.
Surely the question whether Tom Dennlson
Is a fugitive from , Justice cannot depend
upon the Blender thread of a requisition
from Governor Cummins and extradition of
Governor Mickey and we invoke the power
of this court to determine the fact of
whether we are to be condemned without a
hearing or. not." , .
Continuing his argument at the afternoon
session Mr. Smith established by citation
that the law was that a man charged with
being a fugitive from Justice would be
given a chance In court to show that he had
lived in Iowa for three years and that
therefore the statute of limitations had
run. against the crime. This principle, Mr.
Bmith said, had been established by the
United States supreme court and from It
he argued that Tom Dennlson had the same
Inalienable right to show In court that he
had never been in Iowa at all or at a
specific time. Mr. Smith's plea throughout
was a most powerful and lucid presentation
of the cose of hi client.
Thomas and Brome Close.
Preliminary to Mr. Thomas' argument,
Mr. Brome and the opposing counsel dis
cussed the case freely with frequent
Interrogatories from' the bench. Th re
Iterated statement of Mr. Brome was that
It Is the duty of the governor of the state
of Nebraska to send to Iowa any man la
this state charged with having committed
a crime, whether the man wa ever In
Iowa or not, and be said that It I ret
competent for any court to interfere with
the action of th chief executive. He
c'almed that ny evidence submitted to
tho governor was competent
Mr. Thomas said It made no difference
what the evidence was that was submit
ted to the governor nor how good It was.
"The matter for the consideration of this
court," he said, "was there any evidence
submitted to the governor, and If It finds
that there was this court's Inquiry ceases."
The speaker took up many of the cases
and points cited by bis associate, re
Iterating and adding to the remark and
argument he had made upon them, the
keynote of his argument being that th
relator wa a fugitive from Justice on th
acknowledgments of the application for
a habeas corpus, which sgree that evl-
and trial 10 days proves
Get the little book. The Road
Wellvllle" In each ikg.
I dene was submitted to the governor, but
claim that -it was false, no lunner
stated that Denntaon and his counsel hsd
been Invited to appear before Governor
Mickey and put in evidence before him
at the tlm the extradition snd they re
fused to do so. The contention was also
md that th counsel for the relator
were trying to get their client free on an
alibi which. It was submitted, wa prop
erly fof the consideration of s.n Iowa
Jury, being of Improper consideration In
connection with aa application for a writ
of habeas corpus,
Mf Thomas' argument was very brief
and the matter was submitted to the con
sideration of the court, Judge Day an
nounclng that a derision would b handed
down Thursday at ;30 o'clock.
Dona-Ins Connty Veterans Deride on
' Place of Iteonlon, but Not
At the meeting of the Douglas County
Veterans' association Monday night the
question of the annual renin I on and encamp
ment of tho Douglas county ex-soldlers and
sailor and marines was taken up. In view
of the fact that the state Grand Army of
the Republic reunion project for this city
had been abandoned by th action of the
department encampment at Kearney in
May it was decided to hold the annual
Douglas county rounlon some time during
the summer. The reunion and encampment
will be held at Bennington. The date has
not yet been decided upon. It is the Inten
tion, however, to moke this rounlon a not
able one. An abundance of tonts will be
procured. An effort will be made to secure
a battalion of the regular troops from Fort
Crook to attend and go Into camp during
tho reunion.
All soldiers, sailors and marines of Doug
las county and vicinity, with their friends
and families, have been invited to Join In
the reunion, which will continue for sev'
eral days.

Police and Oploni Smokers.
In an Interview regarding a recent edi
torial appearing In the World-Herald, In
which the police were censured lor allow
ing opium Joints, Chief of Detectlvos Dunn
last night said that the police at once ar
rested the Inmates of a Joint as soon as
they knew of it. "These people seem to
think," he said, "thnt every iieiBon who Is
found smoking opium Is liable to arrest.
This is not so. We can only arrest people
who enter another person's dwelling, and,
while there, smoke opium. A person Is
allowed to smoke opium In his own room
If he likes, but the inw forbids others, who
are not occupants of the room, to smoke
there. And when It Is hinted that we ere
not doing our duty In this respect It shows
that the person who says so does not know
what he la talking about. A look over the
police books will convince doubters that a
number of arrests have been made for this
crime, and another look into the lumber
room at the police station will disclose a

Ross, which was followed by an essay on
"Every Day Opportunities," by Richard
Bingham, son of W. W. Bingham. The
"art demonstration" by Lloyd Blankenshlp,
which came next, was very fine.

on, Orvlna Johnson, Lillian Rasmuascn
Nellie Johnson, May Williams, Anna John
son, Lydla Geath and Cora PUlard. Mlsi

exercise consisted of short speeches by the
pupils and the working of examples In
arithmetic. The teacher, Miss Evelyn
Humphreys, put the questions to th pupil,
who read her Hps and made audible an
swers, having been taught to speak.
"Will There Be Any Star In My Crown"

number and received much applause for
her effort, which was exceptionally weil
rendered. Mis Ota B.. Crawford, teacher
of a clos in fourth year work, exhibited
the ability of her pupils, who vsre mall

their own language.
Viola Jenks followed Mrs. Hendee in the
sign language while she sang "My Faith
Looks Up to Thee."
The essay and valedictory by John H.
Opfer, valedictorian of . the graduating
class, exhibited much thought and reason,
The subject was "Th Russo-Japanese

upon the horror and pleasures of war,
Mr. Opfer launched out Into a study of th
present conditions In the far east. During
the reading of the essay In the sign lan

ent H. W. Rothert of the Iowa School for
the Deaf, who addressed the clas In the
sign language at the same time that he
spoke to the audience, so that all were
enabled to understand what b was saying.

quested the boys who formed the class to
always lead uprig-ht lives and thus prove
an honor to the Institution from which they
secured their educations.

Away," by Sena Stlllahn, Eva Redman,
