Ing In tho city. A plan Is on foot for the j
various Improvement club to get 'whether
and work In harmony. More than likely
a Joint meeting of all the clubs in South
Omaha will be held soon to talk over Im
provements and to devise plans for next
year. With the Improvements now under
way and those contemplated South Omaha
will certainly present a busy appearance
next year. Missouri avenue is to be paved
and the paving on Twenty-fourth street
will be finished next year. Then there I
talk of paving West Q street, and also
paving M street from Twenty-fifth to
Twenty-seventh street. Building operations
promise to be lively next year as con
tractor are already figuring on a number
of structures to be put up as soon as the
weather will permit In the spring.
Water Vnder Control.
The spring of water underneath the site
of the Union Pacific passenger station,
which caused some trouble a few days ago,
Is now under control. About thirty men
are now at work on the foundations of this
building and the concrete Is going down
rapidly. Boxing Is being used and as fast
as the concrete Is mixed It Is dumped Into
the boxes and will, when hard, form a fine
cement wall for the foundations. So far
the laying of foundation has been confined
to the west line of the new station build
ing, but tt will only be a few days now be
fore this work will be completed and ex
cavating for the east foundation walls com

Criminal Intent.
The ' federal grand Jury began the In

The old soldier to a man plead abrolute

Colorado for Deserting
Ills Wife.
A requisition for Harry Chambers, who is
wanted in York county, wasgranted by
Governor McDonald of . Colorado Monday.
Chamber, is a. regular arrriy soldier at
Fort Logan, Colo., who Is wanted back In
York county for wife desertion. There
seem to be a question as to the surrender
of Chamber to the civil authorities, as he
is now under the rules and regulation of
the army.- The matter ha been- referred
to the Judge advocate general of the army
at Washington.
That Omaha knows how to honor her
public-spirited clt teens Was amply proven
at the banquet given by the Commercial
club to the Board of Oovernors of Ak-Sar-Ben
last night, at which 90 men were
seated. A well selected menu prepared the
guests for the feast of wit which followed.
Some Inconvenience was caused at first by
the blowing out of a fuse in the hall, and
the lights were off for about a half hour.
Oysters were esten by candle light, and
by the time the soup waa brought, the
damage to the electric apparatus had been
The program was Interesting from first
to last. W. S. Wright, president of the
Commercial club, presided, and his introduc
tions always brought a laugh. Howard H.
Baldrige spoke a welcome to the Board
of Governors. He said the Knights of Ak-Bar-Ben
have done more In a tangible way
for the city than any other organization
possibly could have done.
Wattle on Ak-ar-Ben.
Gurdon W. Wattle responded to the
toast, "The Knights of Ak-8ar-Ben." He
told of the labors of the knights for the
entertainment of the people of Quivers,
and for the ehtry of Samson Into his capi
tal city to lie crowned by his subjects. It
Is very fitting, he said, that the business
men of the city show their appreciation, as
they do this evening, of the efforts n the
board, for such civic pride and patriotism
as the members have shown Is worthy of
It. He spoke of the development of Ne
braska In farm production, and especially
of the growth of Omaha. Commenting on
the difficulties of the establishment of the
Omaha Grain exchange and Its success, he
said: "The Omaha Grain exchange is a
realty, and neither corporations, Individuals
nor anything else can- stop It now. Its
quotations on grain set the price for the
state. It has made tt possible for the
farmer to get i cents more than before for
every bushel of grain shipped."
H. H. Wilson of Lincoln was introduced
by the toastmaster as the next governor
of Nebraska. His subject wa "America
a a World Power." . Mr. Wilson said the
Louisiana purchase settled the question
that this country had a constitutional right
to grow; the acquisition of Texas settled
the question of whether tt had a right to
take by conquest, and tbe purchase of
Alaska made It certain that It had a right
to acquire non-contiguous territory.
Lately, be said, the constitution had been
stretched again, and the Stars and Stripes
had been planted In the orient. America
In the lart eight years has taken a place
among the foremost of the world' powers.
About Omaha he said:' "The first 125.000
was hard to get; you will grow now of
your own force."
"The King is Dead; Long Live ' the
King," was tho subject of an extremely
witty address by Arthur C. Wakeley.
Dnst Mulch 'Farming:.
J. L. Donahue of Denver talked on the
Campbell system of funning, an associa
tion "for tho development of which was
Incorporated In Denver October 26. The
association expect that some day the
western counties of , Nebraska and Kan
sas and the eastern counties of Colorado
will be raising -es moch Brain as the
average crop of lowaC' Illinois or eastern
Nebraska! Fifteen .Inches of rain falls
annually in semi-arid parts of Nebraska
and Colorado, and Mr. Donahue said If
It could all be conserved It would raise
crop of twenty-seven bushels of wm-t
per acre. It can be conserved in great
part by the Campbell system, he said.
Edward F. Trefa responded to a toast
on "Civic Loyalty tne source oi rairioi-ism."

The last engagement piayed by the woman
In Omaha waa a year ago last summer,
when she worked a stranger for a good
sited roll of currency within a block of the
police station, so It was reported at the
time to the police. Miss Llcbocke was at
the time under suspicion, but could not be
located here. She wa next heard of In
St. Louis, where-she gave her fainting act
in front of a theater. She next showed
up In Chicago, where she stole a valuable
fur coat from the Slegel-Cooper store. She
was arrested at Milwaukee for this crime,

that crime she served a while at Jollet,
but was remanded to the asylum at Kan

tensive repairs for some weeks and now

dition to the papering and painting of the
Interior a furnace has been Installed.
Plenty of Work.
Complaints are still heard every day
about the scarcity of laborer. Any man
who want work can easily get it In South
Omaha at this time. Carpenters, masons
and in fact all kinds of artisans and work
men are In demand. Contractors who have
unfinished work are rushing to get through
aud those who are preparing to build find it
a hard matter to secure men for out-of-door
work at this time, A great many men
who work outside In the summer have se
cured Indoor jobs for the winter, and this
make it harder than usual to get men for
construction work. On the Twenty-fourth
street paving Job more men can be used
and also on the Missouri avenue curbing.
All over the city there I a demand for
more workmen.
