It was feared that the great wave of civic
reform set In motion by John T. Cathers
who failed to get nominated for state sen

makes to certain city streets he has fenced

Reformer Cathers, Mr. Hennlngs , found,
owed personal taxes for the period of six
teen long years and In order to make him
pay them the tax authorities planned
to levy on his law library. The reformer
refused to pay them without being forced.
Despite all his fame as a reformer Mr.
Cathers appeared to have a nervous air
during his several trips to the city hall
and court house Monday morning. He in
quired anxiously for City Treasurer Hen
nlngs, and In response to a Jocular remark
front an old political friend murmured
something that included the Infernal re
gions as the scenario of whatever it was
that passed in Mr. Cathers' mind. Such
extraordinary action on the part of the dig

cause of Mr. Cathers' perturbation.

Early In the morning Collectors Ander
son and Schamel of the city treasurer's of
fice called upon Mr. Cathers In his office
tn the New Tork Life building snd left
with him a document known as a "distress
warrant," served on persons who will not
pay their share cf public burdens without
being made to.
Briefly it commanded Mr. Cathers at
once to pay 1152, due in personal taxen
to the city treasurer, or suffer the de
parture of such law oTflee books and furni
ture and household goods as were thought
sufficient to cover the debt. With visions
ef the city treasurer's famous van before
his- eyes, Mr. Cathers grew pale. The two
collectors, one of whom at various Inter
vals had tried to Induce Mr. Cathers to
pay something on his bill, were frightened.

Finally Pays lp.
After remaining in possession of the
Cathers law office until about 1 o'clock
the amount of the taxes was paid over to
Collector Bchamei, who then relinquished
possession of the office. Previously Mr.
Cathers had succeeded in finding the city
treasurer, who had gone to the former's
office to Insist upon the release of his col
lector. An understanding was reached to
the effect that If the taxes were paid before
S o'clock the van would not be requisi

about an hour and a half. He had taken
possession under the distress warrant.
When Cathers wanted to leave he simply
locked the collector Inside.
"We have been trying for a long time to
get Mr. Cathers to pay his taxes," said
Treasurer Hennlngs. "He has promised
time and again to do something, but failed.
Now that he has squared up (under force
of the law), he can make his 'reform' and
'graft' speeches with better grace. He now
has some money of his own Invested in the
city treasury to watch."
Mr. Cathers' personal bill ran back
to the year 1S81. and with interest amounted
to 1152. He had made several small pay
ments on it in the days of old, but nothing
WOMAN WANTS HER ALIMONY
New York Wife Sues Husband for
Payment Claimed on Divorce
Mrs. Almlna Mable of New Tork has
filed a suit in the United States circuit
court asking that her former husband,
Charles E. Mable, now a resident of
Omaha, be required to pay her $2,095 ali
mony, which sum. she says. , is still owing
her from him as a result of a decree of di
vorce granted by the Illinois courts. 'The
divorce was obtained in November, 1806,
and he was to pay her $76 per month by
order of the court. Up to September 1,
1905. there was due her from her former
husband $2,325. of which only $230 had been
paid. The balance he has persistently de
clined to pay. The petition alleges that
about four years ago Mr. Mabie left Illi
nois for New Tork, where he remained for
some time, and then returned to Illinois
and then removed to Nebraska in June,
1906, locating in Omaha. The plaintiff al
leges that she Is without remedy at law to
enforce the payment through the courts of
Illinois and that her former husband Is
now lucratively employed and is able to
pay her the alimony decreed to her. She
asks that he be required to appear before
this court and answtr why he should not
be compelled to pay the deficient alimony

The annual visit of Blanche Walsh to
Omaha Is always looked upon as a rare
treat. This remarkable woman, who
stands easily In the front rank of her pro
fession, has Impressed her audiences al
ways with her sincerity. Her last visits
here were in' the terribly somber, but
deeply Impressive "Resurrection." This
time she Is coming in a lighter play, but
one which calls upon her reserve force
almost as much as did the Tolstoi drama.
Clyde Fitch has supplied her with a drama
of life one that is of genuine Interest.
"The Woman In the Case" tells . of the
rivalry of a good woman and a bad for
the possession of a man. The bad woman
tries to sacrifice him when she finds she
can not hold him, and the good woman
saves him. The third act is pronounced
the most powerful Miss Walsh has ever

Money Is Found,
The touted public-spirited Intervention of
the Ctsmrnerclal club In the police fund
shortage did not manifest Itself at the
Fire and Police board meeting last night.
Nothing was heard from the club or any
cltlxens about contributing to take up tho
deficit. Up-to-date the only positive of
fer of assistance that has been made Is
that of Count Creighton who called up
the chief of police on the telephone and
said he wanted to give $500. ,
"We want It understood that this board
Is not talking buncombe when it speaks
of reducing tho police force to conform
with the funds." said Commissioner
Broatch. We are determined to act strict
ly within the law. If by October 15 tbe
police fund Is not replenished In som,e way
we shall make the cut tn the police force
that Js demanded."
"We have agreed," said Commissioner
Spratlen, "that It is better to keep the
whole force during the Ak-Sar-Hen and
Horse show, when the town Is likely to
attract criminals. It Is better to have the
whole force until October 15 than to let
twenty-five men go now. After October 15,
we will have to let off about thirty-five
men unless assistance comes to the fund."
City Attorney to Help.
City Attorney Breen was present to talk
finances. He said If the mayor vetoed the
asphalt' repair appropriation as announced
there will be left about $10,000 In the general
levy fund. To get hold of part of this for
the police department, Mr. Breen promised
to try to scheme a scheme so that the
law will not be violated. It seems that
the commissioners have been paying for
repairs at the police station and for other
Sundry expenses out of the police fund.
It may be that this Is all wrong and the
city should have stood the cost out of Its
general fund. If the latter be true per
haps the amounts can be charged back and
the police fund "reimbursed," like the
fire fund was.

"In my Judgment the best thing for the
congregation to do is to build a flew church,
even if It has to go in debt for it." These
were the words of Rev. T. J. Mackay upon
his return from his vacation, which has
been spent In New Tork, upon viewing
the wreck of All Saints Episcopal church,
which the wind and storm twisted In such
bad shape Friday night.
O. W. Wattles and Victor Caldwell, the
building committee of the church, are both
In New York and nothing definite could be
learned of the plans for rebuilding.
"It Is impossible tp make a sightly struc
ture of the wrecked church, although the
builders and architects say It can be re
paired. In the meanwhile the congregation
must look for suitable quarters for services
All Saints parish has erected a rectory
during the last yoar at a cont of S12.000
and the church was being moved from the
corner to make room for a $15,000 parish
house, which is to be the personal gift of
Mr. and Mrs. O. W. Wattles. The church
waa blown around four feet and Is a se
rious wreck. The pipe organ is torn to
pieces and every wall Is twisted until It
looks actually unsafe. The plan was to
build a fifteen-foot addition on the front
of the church, which could be used as an
entrance to the parish house aa well. The
parish house will occupy the corner flush
with Twenty-sixth street and will be 64x35
feet, leaving a small lawn on the Dewey
Captain H. E. Palmer has sent for the
Insurance adjuster, $5,000 insurance against

argued that this $5,000 would make a good
