ft irlkers were held In the open air, at
fhlch red flags were waved, but other
vise the proceeding were orderly and the
;nanlfestants dispersed of their own ac
cord. There were no collisions with the
troops arid the feeling was much lesa
tense. All the atorea except the Phllllppoff
bakery were open.
Traffic was resumed on all the streets
with the exception of the Tverskol boule
vard, the center of the previous disorders,
which was closed with troops and police
at nil the Intersecting streets. Detach
ments of Cossacks, dragoons and mounted
police patrolled this place and kept the
crowds moving. Infantrymen and cavalry
were held under arms in the court yarda
of the pollco stations in various quarters
of the city.
The non-appearance of the newspapers,
resulting In a lark of authentic informa
tion, furnished a field for many alarming
rumors. Among these rumors was one to
the effect that there had been a collision
between the troops and the mob, In which
fen persons, variously reported as Cos
sacks, police or civilians, were killed. This
rumor has been authoritatively denied. It
was also reported that artillery had been
posted In front of the palace of Governor
General Durnovo for the purpose of de
fending it against anticipated attacks.
A meeting of workmen held during the
day sent a deputation to the chief of
police to ask permission for the holding
of a mass meeting to discuss questions
relating to the strike. Notwithstanding
that this request was refused, a crowd of
2,000 persons assembled at 8 o'clock this
evening in the presence of strong detach
ments of Cossacks and other troops and
resolved to continue the strike until all
the employers had granted the strikers'
demands. The meeting then dispersed,
voting to'reassemble tomorrow.
The number of persons wounded In the
previous disorders has not been definitely
established, but It Is believed to be about
100, of which number twenty-flve are po
lice or soldiers. One policeman has died
of his wounds and several others, Includ
ing officers, are suffering from serious in
Two hundred strikers were arrested at
the Philllppotr bakery Sunday and taken
to the court yard of police headquarters,
where they were severely beaten before
being released. None of the bakery strik
ers were killed.
Tho strike of the bakers has caused
aharji rise in the price of bread and the
supply is sufficient only for two days.
The railroad employes are threatening

"If I have done a wrong," Dougherty said
to the News correspondent, "I suppose I
ought to be punished for It."
"Do you ascribe your present prosecution
to any political Influence?" he was asked.
"No, I cannot," he answered. "It can be
ascribed to the wave of reform which seems
to be sweeping over the country. It Is
shown In the Investigation of the life In
surance companies, In the Milwaukee graft
investigation and similar Investigations In
other cities, and In some Instances these
investigations have accomplshed a great

the way he expressed his position, "and

many errora will be found."
"Did not the school board keep a regular
set of books, seeing the expenditures were
$300,000 to $400,000 a year?"
"No, it had no need of books. It received
moneys from three sources taxes, state
appropriations and rents. These moneys
were divided about equally between the
Central National bank and the Peoria Na

Sergeant Havey of the police atatlon, Elev

book a prisoner who gave hla name aa
Patrick Crowe; address, Omaha; occupa
tion that of a butcher and age $6 yeara.
The man was charged with shooting w.itli
Intent to kill and wound, the more specific
charge, aa contained In tha complaint filed
against him, being that of shooting Patrol
man Albert H. Jackson on the 6th day of
laet month at Sixteenth and Center atreeta.
So far as mere formalities went Crowe waa
treated aa any prisoner who might come
under the Jurisdiction of the police, but
from point of general Interest he enlisted
more interest than any prisoner booked at
the city Jail for years.
Pat Crowe arrived In Omaha last even
ing at S:26 on Union Pacific . train No.
from Butte. Mont., securely handcuffed to
Detective Henry Hellfeldt of the Omaha
detective force. Anticipating a Jarge crowd
of curious people at the Union atatlon
Chief of Police Donahue detailed a cordon
of twelve policemen In uniform and a
number of plain clothes men, to guard
against any eventualities and to make an
aisle for the prisoner from the train to
the patrol wagon In waiting at the north
end of the Union station. Several thou
sand citizens congregated at the station
and as the notorious alleged kidnaper was
marched down the aisle of curloua facea
quite a number ventured ' to give what
might be termed a cheer. Crowe took
cognizance of the reception by scanning
the small sea of faces and smiling.
Hurried Away to Jail.
Crowe was hastened to the patrol wagon
without any delay. 'As the crowd tried to
run after the wagon Driver Murphy
whipped up the horses and In a Jtffy the
wagon waa at the police station In the
same manner aa happens many times every
station and the noted prisoner were Cap
tain Dunn, Detective Heltfeldt and a num
ber of newspaper correspondents. On the
way to the police station Crowe sat ne
tween a reporter and Detective Heltfeldt
and chatted cheerfully along the way. He
noted keenly every little Incident and gave
no evidence of nervousness of any kind.
The prisoner entted the office of the
police station handcuffed to Detective Helt
feldt. who was appointed aa custodian of
the prisoner by the governor of Montana.
Captain Dunn unlocked the cuffs and then
Crowe and Chief , Donahtfe shook hands.
In an Instant Crowe recognized ' Special
Agent Vlzzard of the Union Paciflc and
greeted him cordially. The third person
to be greeted by Crowe was Ben Keegan,
a-n old Omaha ft tend". - '" -v " -
Aa the- handcuffs' were slipped from
Crowe's hand he gave vent t a small
sigh and remarked:
"This is quite a relief."
Then Sergeant Havey booked the prisoner
In the most matter-of-fact way and he-waa
assigned to cell No. , one of the large
cells of the city Jail.
Appetite Still Good
"What do you want for supper T" was
asked by Captain Dunn,
Pat'a order was: Rare porterhouse ateak,
German fried potatoes, coffee with cream
and augar, and desert, all of which waa
sent in a few minutes from a restaurant

summoned the first classes, one could see
a contlnous and endless line of carriage
lamps, all going eastward to the Auditor
ium. Other atreets from the fashionable
districts were thickly dotted with the same
kind of flreflys. Around' the Auditorium
entrance they buzzed in swarms, regulated
by white-gloved policemen, for an hour or
more. Sherlock Holmes and Raffles to

Conan Doyle wouldn't have written up If

It la to be hoped alncerely that captious

were there. It will choke In their throats
if they try to say Omaha la "raw" any
longer at a Horae Show. The demonstra

ripples of laughter; the commingling of
group after group; a free and frequent
use of the promenade.
Aa for enthusiasm, galleries at a melo

of their finger tips. Tfce applause was like
the descriptions of musketry before Muk
