It ha been decided br the city authori
ties to ask the voters for $250,000 to be usel
In constructing a complete newer system of
South Omaha. When tha council met In
adjourned session Wednesday the ordl
nanca Introduced Monday nlgrht approving
the plana of Andrew Rosewater for a
sewer eyatem waa put on Ite aecond read
ing. Next. Monday night thla ordinance
will ba passed.
At yesterday's meeting the finance com
mittee waa Inatructed to go over the plana
and recommend to the council Monday
night the territory to be embraced In the
aewer ordinance. The committee la now
working on the plana. In speaking of the
aewer proposition Councilman Adklns said
that It had about decided that the whole
amount of the Issue allowed by law would
be asked for. '
"It may not be neoessarr to expend the
entire amount at once, but It appears to us
better to get the views of the people at
once and not be compelled to bring the
matter up again and ponelbly delay the
construction of the sewers."
Tt Is understood that about I14K.A00 will
be needed to construct a main sewer to the
river and the balance is to be used In ex
tending the sewers all over the city or
where most needed. The suit recently
started In the federal court to compel the
abatement of the Mud creek nuisance Is
supposed to have something to do with
bringing tha question before the voters at
the November -election.
Officials of the city assert thai If the
bonds carry In November the money will
be on band sn that work on the main
sewer can be started early In the spring.
From talk .around the city hall -It Is In
ferred that this sewer proposition will be
thoroughly agitated between now nnd elec
tion day 1n eider te stir un as much Inter
est for the bonds as possible.

HERZIG'S BOtW IS FOUND
Man 'Who Confeaaed to Mnrder of an
Ohio Girl Hanga
- HI a self.
MINOT, N. D.. Sept. ll.-The dead body
of Charles Herslg. who left a written con
fesslon of the crimes of assault and mur
der committed near Toungstown, O., over
thirty years, ago, has been found "By a
posse of searchers hanging to a tree In a
secluded ravine just over the line In th
unorganlxed county of Wallace. Pinned to
his breast was a piece of wrapping paper
on which was written the following:
My name Is Charles Herxlg. Over
thirty years ago I murdered a young girl
named Utile K. Ororhharher, near Toungs
town, O. Charles Sterling, an Innocent
man, wa tried, convicted and hanged for
the murder of this girl. If my body Is
ever found, notify my mother, Catherine
liertlg, at Olrard. O.
If Herslg had not left a written confes
sion and threat of suicide at the Byer
ranch his body might not have bem found
for years, as It waa hanging In a spot
seldom visited. Around his neck was a
shred of green veiling, such as women
use for face veils. It Is -recalled by a
former young stockman here ' that Lizzie
Grombacher wore such a veil when mur
dered and that part of tt waa used to
stranala her. The Piece found about Her-
slg's neck Is supposed to be the remainder
of the veil, as he showed such a piece
to a fellow ranchman o whom he told the'
story of his crime, declaring that he had
kept it all these years so aa to use It to
end his own life.
At the time It was thought Herslg was
demented. Herzig said that after com
mitting the murder and exchanging shirts
with Bterllni. he went to Warren, O.,
where he aa employed, as a gardener.
After Sterling's arrest and trial he fled to
Pennsylvania, where he remained In hiding
until the eve of Sterling's execution, when
he stole a horse and went west. He set
tled In Telluride county, where he mar
ried. Ohio people commenced to move In
and. becoming frightened, he deserted his
wife and child and went to Death Valley
in California. Blnce then he had been a
THINK VESSEL WAS PEARL
Alaska Codfish Company Believes It
Owned Schooner Wrecked
Oil Alssknn Const.
BAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 13. The three.
mastbd vessel which Is reported bottom up
on the beach of the Alaskan coast Is be
lleved to be the ichooner Pearl, which
sailed from here December 7, 1904, and
from which no word has ever been received.
The Identification of one of the bodies
which came ashore near the wreck as that
of George Fennerllng, who shipped on the
vessel as station cook, satisfies the Alnska
Codfish company, which owned the vessel;
that It Is no other than the schooner Pearl.
Advices from Seattle stated that the ves
sel came ashore at Yakatago, but It was
probably meant for Yakatat bay, In south
eastern Alaska. - It waa stated that a bill.
of goods made out - In the name of the
schooner Prosper was found, and it gave
the Impression that the schooner Prosper
had met misfortune. This, however, can
not be, as tha three-masted Prosper, op
erated by the Alaska Packers' association.
Is now laid up In'Oakland creek. There is
another schooner named Prosper, but It Is
a four-masted vessel, now out thirteen days
from San Pedro, for Wlllapa' harbor. If It
is the. Pearl, thirty-four men were drowned.
