BREEN CONDEMNS HAND LAW
Citj AttsnuT Ainerts it is Vicious nd Not
Objectionable to Autoiits.
SAYS CHARTER MUST TAKE PRECEDENCE
Think Aatomoblll.ts May Hare Had
Hand ta Piai of the Bill
bj Legislature Last
and Grace street It Is Bald he utarted
diagonally across the street ahead uf the
lst-r, to be knocked over by the ap
proaching car. The car proceeded about
125 feet before beln stopped. It la stated.
The Injured boy la a nephew of Thomas
City Attorney Breen has notlned local au
tomoblllsts. who asked him about the mat
ter, that the legal department will Insist
upon the registration of motor cars and the
payment of the II fee under an ordinance
governing; the whlzx wagons, regardleaa'of
the Hand law enacted by the last legisla
ture. The Hand law provides that all automo
biles In the state shall be registered with
the secretary of state upon the payment
of $1 fee and forbids local legislation to
regulate the machines by any city, town or
village. Resides tills the measure seeks to
nullify all ordinances or local regulations
on the subject, so as to leave the state
law the sole mandate In the premises.
When this section was discovered by the
city attorney It provoked a suspicion In
his mind that the act, which on the sur
face teemed aimed at autolBts, In reality
might have been originated by them. A
study of the law showed the speed limit
In well built up parts of cities and towns J
Is ten miles an hour; for less thickly pop- .
ulated districts inside municipal limits, I
nrteen miles ana in tne country twenty
The Omaha ordinance qn the subject pre
scribes a speed not greater than eight
miles an hour In the district bounded by
Leavenworth, Twentieth and Nicholas
streets, and twelve miles an hour outside.
This comparison further shook the attor
ney's faith In the Innocence of the Hand
law and he became somewhat vexed.
Calls It a Vlcloan Law.
"This law Is vicious," Laid he, "because
It strikes at the Inherent right of cities to
control tralHo on their own streets. The old
and new rhnrter expressly provides that
the city may properly regulate all vehicles
propelled by various kinds of power, but
tlio Hand law attempts to tako away this
authority. Inasmuch as tho new charter
and the automobile law were approved on
the same day, April 3, the supremacy of
the charter on this point Is not as clear as
1 would like to have it, but I think I could
carry the contention In court and that Is
exactly what I propose to do If the automo
blllsts do not comply with the ordinance,
take out permits and govern themselves
lust aa though the ordinance had undis
puted power and effect.
"There Is nothing In the Hand law, so far
as I can see, that an automoblllst should
seriously object to. The provision requiring
a motor car driver to stop and allow ner
vous horses to pass at a signal from the
driver of the latter can hardly be consid
ered obnoxious. In fact, I have a lurking
suspicion that tho automoblllsts like the
'aw, even If they did not have some kind
nf a part In Its origin and' passage.
"The law takes effect July 1. It Is not
nearly so stringent in many particulars as
the Omaha ordinance on the subject, which
I expect to enforce."

FIRST PR0TEST0F PACKERS
Armours File Complaint Attain. t As
sessment with County Board
Proceedings of the County Board of
Equalization were of a routine character
Friday. The only large concerns which
presented complaints against their assess
ments were Armour Packing company, Chi
cago Lumber company and Ribbel Paper
and Woodenware company. They were all
referred for consideration. The board has
reached an agreement to take up the pro
tests of the large business houses in a
bunch. Next Wednesday the South Omaha
packers will have a hearing. Armour's Is
the first protest filed, by the packers. The
company's assessment la placed at $040,000,
the same as last year. Attorney Mahoney
argued that this figure is excessive be
cause the company has iess pork stock on
hand since the Sioux City house is again
at work. v

THREE YEARS FOR KIRKMAN
President Approves Findings of Two
Courts-Martial in Officer's Oast,
TO SERVE TIME AT FORT LEAVENWORTH
O fllcer Who Has Caused Much Work
(or Judge Advocate's Depart
ment Will Be Dismissed
WASHINGTON, June 18. The president
has approved the findings In two trials of
Captain George W. Kirkman of the Twenty
fifth Infantry, sentencing him to dismissal
from the army and confinement In the
penitentiary at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.,
for three years. Kirkman was connected
with the sensational cose resulting in the
suicide of the wife of Lieutenant Chandler
The trial of Captain Jilrkman was on sev
eral charges and a host of specifications,
alleging conduct unbecoming an officer and
gentleman, falsifying his pay accounts und
drunkenness being among them. His first
trial took place early the present year and
a continuation finally was obtained to May
10, to permit him to procure certain deposi
tions from Manila, where he proposed to
show that he had become Insane through
sunstroke and that his misconduct was
owing to that cause. After the adjourn
ment of that trial the Mrs. Chandler epi
sode occurred, resulting In the suicide of
that woman in Omaha In April last. It de
veloped In the investigation of the suicide
of Mrs. Chandler that the estrangement be
tween her and her husband was owing to
Captain Klikman's Invasion of Lieutenant
Chandler's domestic relations and another
court-martial was ordered for the trial of
Kirkman. It was this last court-martial,
embodying the general charges of the first
and adjourned court-martial, with addi
tional charges growing out of the Chandler
affair, that has just resulted In his dis
missal from the army and his prison sen
tence. Captain Kirkman Is a relative of promi
nent railway magnates of Wisconsin and
every effort was exerted by these powerful
Influences to mitigate his sentence and per
mit him to resign from the army, but with
