Work La Missouri Rl"er
la Statement to Inter las'
The annual report of Major H. M. Crit
tenden, Cnlted Slates engineer In charge of
the work along the Missouri river, covering
a period from JuJy 1, 1904. to July 1. 1906.
has been sent in to tha War Department
giving a resume of tha money expended
under hla direction.
The report states that the total amount
expended during the fiscal year along the
entire rtver for maintenance of Improve
ments waa S33.M1.4S. The outstanding liabil
ities on July 1. 1906, were Jt2.6M.40. The
total sum available on July 1, 1906, waa
There haa heen appropriated by congress
In all up to July 1, 190B, for Improving the
Big Muddy the aum of t9.647.840 98. Of this
aum of tl.9M.S51.4S hn been expended above
Bloux City and a7.575.OnO on the river below
Bloux City. Stmtx City Is the dividing
point between the upper and lower river
! and the projects are made separately for
the two divisions of the stream.
The apportionment of the appropriation
for the coming year Is as follows:
Five Thousand for Omaha.

In addition to the 115,000 set apart for St.
Joseph the sum of tlOO.OOO Is to' be expended
In the building1 of a great longitudinal
dike In front of the city. One-half of this
sum was np, roprlsted by congress In a
speclnl net on condition that the citizens
of St. Joseph raise an equal amount. The
contribution has been rained and work on
the big project Is now about to be com
menced. Strangely enough no recommendations
whatever are made as to future appropria
tions or further work. ' In a Bloux City
paper Major Chittenden Is reported to have
given as his reason that It Is no use io
make recommendations "In view of the fact
that there will be no river and harbor bill
before congress this winter." It seems to
be useless anyway to make recommenda
tions or even estimates, as so little atten
tion Is paid to them by congress In consid
ering the Missouri river. So I have made
my 'report only to cover tha expenditures
at the different points last year and the
results accomplished In the general scheme
of improving the river so far as our limited
means would permit, and to give the sums
to be expended along the river during the

"Three years ago we had three doctors
with our little boy and everything that they
could do seemed In vain. At last when all
hope seemed to be gone we began using
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy and In a few hours he began to
Improve. Today he Is as healthy a child as
parents could wish for. We feel that wa
cannot afford to be without this medicine
in our home." Mrs. B. J. Johnston, Linton,

NEW STREET FAIR PLANS
Scheme for Ak-Bar-Ben to Contract with
Big Carnival Company.
OLD ARRANGEMENT TO BE ABANDONED
8nch Will B the Result if the
Present Plans Are Carried
Oat for Show This
If present plans are carried out, Ak-Sar-Ben
is to enter upon an entirely new deal
In Its street fair this fall. Instead of leav
ing It to the amusement manager to gather
the amusements features of the great show.
It is proposed to contract with one of the
big street carnival companies to furnish
all the entertainments of the coming street
fair, free and paid.
While the members of the Board of Gov
ernors refuse to talk on the subject. It is
known that a committee was sunt to Den
ver not long ago to make a personal In
spection of the attractions offered by tha
carnival company, and that the committee
came back enthusiast lo about It and re
ported In favor of the proposition.
Under the proposed arrangements, the
street fair will have a lot of entirely new
bills, with greater variety than has marked
the previous fairs under Ak-8ar-Beu'a
Looks Well Financially.
From a financial standpoint, It Is under
stood the carnival company's terms are re
garded as eminently satisfactory. The con
ditions include exclusive control of all
shows Inside the gates for which an admis
sion charge Is made, with only the excep
tion of the regular Ak-Sar-Ben mystery
show that has been such a winner from
year to year. All the local arrangements,
Including the gate receipts to the carnival
ground, the booths for the display of mer
chandise, and the county fair section, are
to be kept within the jurisdiction of Ak-Sar-Ben,
who Is to have a uniform per
centage on the amusement feature rev
enues on the same plauaa previously ex
acted from Individual showmen.

NEW CHURCH FOR COLORED
Presbyterian Organisation Launched
In Omaha Her. John Andrew
Pope, A.B., B.D., Preaches.
An organization of a Colored Presbyterian
church seems to be one or me possibilities
of the near future In Omaha. Arrange
ments to this effect have been In progress
for a couple of Sundays, a number of the
leading colored people of the city being
Interested In the enterprise. The prelim
inary meetings have been held at the First
Presbyterian church, Seventeenth and
Dodge streets, and It Is the purpose to
name the organlatlon the First Colored
Presbyterian Church of Omaha.
Rev. John Andrew Pope, A. B., B. D.,
preached two sermons and last Sunday a
temporary church was organised. Rev.
E. H. Jenks, pastor of the First Presby
terian church, was present and led the de
votional services that constituted the new
The organisation will be finally completed
In September at the meeting of the Pres
bytery of Omaha.
The next meeting of the organisation
will be held Sunday, August 13, at Lowe
Avenue Presbyterian church. Fortieth and
Nicholas streets, at 1 o'clock p. m.

REVENUES ARE INCREASED
Collections for July Enlarged by
special Licenses and Beer
The collections of Internal revenue for
the month of July for this district are
slightly more than for the corresnondtnir
month for 1904. The Increases have been
In special licenses and In beer stamps. The
month s average, however, corresriond
fairly well with the previous year, and the
increase is owing to a sudden increase In
the application for beer stamDs the las
few days of the month. This will crobablv
average up with the corresDondlna seaso
ot last year by a possible decrease during
ine month of August, these two month
being the dullest In revenue receipts of the
year. The figures for the months of Jul)
for the two years are: July, 1906, $194.68.13
July, 1904, I1M,7!.83.
The movement to replace tfie granite
block pavement on Farnam street, from
Thirteenth to Eighteenth, with asphalt, for
which petitions are circulating, seems tol
have met with so much favor that an en
laigement of the area to be re paved is now
proposed by the creation of an additional
district, embracing Farnam street, from
Tenth to Thirteenth. The owner of a piece
of property below Thirteenth street, ex
plaining the matter, says:
"We are In favor of surfacing' Farnam
street with asphalt all the way from Tenth
to Eighteenth, so as to make I lie street a
thoroughfare from end to end. The dlm
culty until now has been that there Is no
way ot bringing people from the stations
uptown without rattling over granite pave
ments or dodging holes In the downtown
asphalt. It Is a little better now since
the asphalt pavements have been repaired,
but what we should have Is a route from
the station by direct line across Tenth or
Eleventh and then west on Farnam. This
would give the strangers arriving in the
city the best first Impression, to say noth
ing of the convenience to our own people.
I do not look for much except wholesale
business east ot Twelfth street, but the
repavlng of Farnam street would help
rather than hinder the rearrangement of
the wholesale district."

of the Probation
Attorney C. J. Smyth appeared before
Judge Redlck Monday morning and en
tered a vehement protest against the act
of Chief Probation Officer Bernstein and
a city policeman in entering the houses of
two families named Sweeney and Gernandt
at 2 o'clock In the morning and removing
therefrom two boys who are alleged to be
guilty of criminal acts.
Mr. Smyth said the boys were taken
from their parents' homes without any
warrant, without even a complaint being
filed. He said he was protesting as a
father as well as in his capacity as an
attorney, and that he considered the pro
ceeding as nothing less than an outrage.
"If this thing can be done, your honor,"
said the lawyer, "what home Is safe from
Intrusion? Ai.y person, any neighbor. If
maliciously Inclined, can have the proba
tion officer come to my home or to yours at
any hour of the night and take our chil
dren away. Boys cannot be very bad who
are found In bed In their parents' homes
at night. The fathers of these boys are
here and they are Intelligent men, who
may be questioned by your honor. We
demand at least a preliminary hearing, and
that at once. If we cannot have It and
there Is any way to release these boys by
a writ of habeas corpus, I shall certainly
take steps io do it."
"That will not be necessary." said Judge
Redlck. "We can release them on the re
cognizances of the parents until court opens

Probation Offloer Bersteln said he was
willing the boys should be released on bond.
He thought the Juvenile court law gave him
the authority to arreBt the boys wherever
and whenever ha found them if they were
amenable to tha provisions of the law.
"That may be done in Russia," aid Mr.
Smyth, "but not in this country."
The probation officer still Insisted that he
had Justification for his acts and insisted
that while this was the first time these
boys had been caught. It was not the first
time they had been suspected of breaking

LIVELY TIME FOR BERNSTEIN
Strenuous Days Are These for Juve

Probation Officer Bernstein and his depu
ties are finding life as .strenuous these
days as they care to have it. Within forty-eight
hours they have taken under their
wing ten Juveniles charged with various
offenses and they are on the trail of six
others. Most of the lads taken in are
charged with or suspected of thefts of a
petty character, but two or three are
charged with breaking and entering. One
adult resident of Sheely Is charged with
having lured some youngsters to steal
brasses from the Northwestern road at
South Omaha. Another man Is alleged to
have been selling cigarette papers to chil
dren. These cases of alleged abetting of
Juvenile delinquents are now being in

FOUR MARINERS OVERBOARD
Quartet of Young reople Are Ship
wrecked In Wonderland and
Go Home Dripping.
"Shipwrecked In Wonderland" might be
the title of an Interesting story which
could be written In collaboration by four
young people who were enjoying themselves
at Krug park Sunday night. Whether one
of the men rocked the boat or whether one
of "the young women sat too near the edge
of the boat and, losing her balance, over
tipped the craft, no one knows, but the
four chiefly concerned. At any rate, In the
pltch-bltu'k channel Just pust the brilliantly
lighted "City of New York" the boat was
upside down and Its occupants were in the
dark wafers of the river. Two other
couples, coining In another boat, heard a
succession of screams, wnlcli ended in
heartrending weeping. Two bass voices
pleaded and tlneulened alternately. The
second boat swept past the lights of the
city and In the dense blackness beyond
darihed Into the wrecked craft. Still louder
screams from the-castaways. One man In
the lifeboat held the vesnel stationary by
seizing the timbers of trie wall, while the
other dragged the two dripping and blub
bering damsels aboard. Then they cast an
chor and went forward, leaving the two
hapless men to wado past polar snows and
tropic palms to the point where the under
ground river emerges from Its caverns.
They, were four bedraggled beings who
made their way hurriedly through the park
to the car line.
