THIRD CRAZY OVER CROWE
One More Finon Dsmentsd Trying ts
Fathom tbt Cass.
CHICAGOAN CLAIMS CAPTURE AND COIN
6Iors Into Chief Donahae's OUtce,
Tells of Arrrillng Famooa Man
ad Demand Sftllf
meat In Cash.
The third person to lose his mind by
study ef the Pat Crowe question appeared
In Omaha Tuesday In the person of Cart
Carlson, a middle-aged, red-eyed man who
ssld he was a detective from Chicago and
had worked every day on the Cudahy kid
naping case since Its Inception In December,
Carlson claimed alt the credit for the ar
rest of Crowe at Butte, although he did not
explain Ms exact connection. In addition
he said ho had three confederates of Crowe
under surveillance In Chicago, where they
were ready to be taken Into custody at any
time. Chief of Police Donahue tried to lead
the man back Into the avenues of snnlty
but without avail,' and finally got rid of
him by threatening to lock him up.
The first person to display signs of men'ul
unbalance regarding the Crowe buslnei
was a French doctor of Chicago, who came
out here not long after the crime and de
clared he had seen Pat Crowe change $lS,0O9
In gold for paper money In Montreal. This
man asserted that Jim Callahan was Pat
Crowe. He gave the police and city au
thorities much trouble, on one occasion
Anally getting before the council and ad
dressing that body.
Poor Woman the Xext.
Only last summer a demented Swedish
woman of Minneapolis, apparently about BO
years old, came to Omaha thinking she
had Important and exclusive Information
gained from the Inmates of her hour ding
house regarding Pat Crowe and his where
abouts. Her case was rather pitiful, as she.
fully expected to pocket a large reward.
After several scenes about the city hall
and court house this woman was Induced
to go back home. Not long ago the chief
received a letter from a Minneapolis legal
light, who said the woman had placed the
case In his hands and asked for particulars.
The chief wrote back he was surprised any
lawyer or other person of a bright mind
fcould listen to the woman unfold her tale
without knowing she Is crazy.
Carlson on arriving from Chicago pro
ceeded at once to Bouth Omaha, where, lie
made efforts to see Edward A. Cudahy, but
did not succeed. He then tackled the
county attorney's office and kept the at
taches guessing for ten minutes or so until
one of the assistants had a bright Idea and
eent the crank to Chief Donahue with the
Information the chief was the man who
would handle his case.
( Visions of the Cola,
Carlson blew Irto the chief's office with
a light In his eyes that betokened delightful
visions of a huge chunk of reward money.
By way of preliminary he told the chief ho
would settle for 110,000, although he really
ought to have $25,000.
"Ever since the day after the kidnaping
I have worked on the case," declared Carl
son In a strong dialect. "I am a detective
and Mr. Cudahy knows t have put In every
day on the case I have been successful.
It was I who got Pat Crowe arrested and
I have Ms three pals waiting now In Chi
cago. It was long, hard chase, but I
tracked them down. I followed them and
they followed me. I have been afraid to
give them up Wore because they threat
ened to shoot me If I did.';'
Carlson has., been sending letters to Mr.
Cudahy for a 'fong time.' . He did not show
tip Wednesday. " V
WOMAN KEEPS HER PURSE
C'llars to Poeketbook and nefnse to
Get Scared at Drunken
Bhe was self-absorbed and very sweet
looking. He was almost In the condition of
R sponge that has been In contact with
water. They approached each other from
opposite directions, she with her purse held
In her hand almost directly In front of her
and elevated at a sort of absent-minded
angle. As they' got close together Just be
low the Boyd theater he took an Involun
tary tack toward the "unseeing female."
One hand went up as a sort of balancing
pole, then came down plump onto the hand
holding the purse.
"Why, shurtin'ly, "f you don' need It;
pleash 'cept m'thanks."
But as he started to foreclose on the purse
In apparent earnest the girl said sharply,
"You go away, you nasty thing," and
Jerked her band from the threatened grasp.
"Oh, all right, all right, m' dear; thlsh'a
Hallowe'en an'way. Mlght've known offer
wui only a bluff."
And he wandered along, while the girl
quickened her steps and dropped her hand
to her side.

GRIP HAS CARRIED FORTUNES
Old VnlUe at Postofflce Has Held
Twenty Million Dollars In
"Sea that new grip or valise." suld As
sistant Postmaster Woodard at the post
offlec Wednesday mdrritng. There Is noth
ing remarkable about that particular grip,
but we have Just bought It to Replace the
old grip used In this office for ten of more
years to carry the postofflce funds from
the office to the banks. The old grip has
conveyed more than $20,000,000 between the
Omaha postofflce and the banks since It
was in use. We have placed the faithful
old grip in the vault where It will be
kept among the valued archives of this of
fice. It may be worthy of note, too, that
there has never been a dollar lost from
the old grip. This new one, a stout, brown
leather one with heavy brass and steel
mountings, Is much stronger than the old
one and I expect .It will make a better
record in the next decade than She old one
has In the past."

CONCESSIONS FOR TRAVELERS
New Ortvanlsatlon Is Kormlugr
Anion; the Commercial
J. L. TImberman of Chicago, aside from
hi duty a a traveling salesman. Is pro
moting a new organization of the traveling
men of the United States. The name of the
new order Is the League of American
Travelers. It was brought into existence
June 25, 1906, and, according to Mr. Timber
man, has a large membership already. The
object of the now organization Is to gain
and hold more liberal concession from
the railroads and transportation com
panies. The plan of the organization is exactly
similar to the American Wheelmen. They
aim to secure mileage bonks on a Just and
equitable basis; 1,000 miles for .'0.00 flat
! covering all territory of the United States,
1 east and west no rebates, no signing and
exchanging mileage for a ticket and no
j signing on the train. They aim to rejieal
I all limited liability laws wherever In ef
fect; to provide a fund for legal proceed
ine and to push test case. It will de
mand that baggage lost shall be paid for
at the full value thereof. To effect this
they propose to organiie with a member
ship fee of $1.00 and a yearly fee of 11.00
a dues. If one-half of the computed
6,000,000 traveling men Join the organization
It la thought that a new and powerful In
fluence will be fostered and made effective
Mr. Timberman asaert that the traveling
man is receiving much less than hi rights
In all these matter and that It actually
cost him more than the casual travelers,
when he should be riding for much less.
The plan of the organisation Is simply
being passed from hand to hand. There
are no paid officials. No meetings are
planned until each town has a stipulated
