he said, did most of the talking and the
witness had recognised lievl'a voice when
he was confronted with him at the city
Jail. Pressed a in him ability to positively
Identify young Levi, the witness said. "He
could have been the man and yet might not
have been. I would not care to swear posi
tively that he was, but In the best of my
judgment, he was.'
Harry Neeley, the second witness, was
more positive Jn his Identification of Levi
and more than once during his testimony
referred to the smaller of the two bandits
lvl. Hla stnry of the Incidents of tho
holdup was substantially the same as that
of the preceding witness. Neeley testified
thst up to about six yara ago he and Levi
had gnne to school together. Xeeley was
robbed of 50 cents during the holdup and he
was emphatic In his declaration that Lavi
resembled the man who went through the
pockets of his overalls and secured the
money. would not swear positively, but
it looked like him," the witness stated when
pressed on the question of his ability to
Identify Levi. The witness also testified to
being In Harden s aaloon. the night Levi
was released from the rlty Jail, after his
first arrest, when It Is contended Levi called
to see Hardc-h and offered to pay $X to
square the matter. That thla offer was
made by Levi waa not brought out In
Keeley's cross examination, but was re
ferred to by Neeley's attorney In explain
ing to the court his reason for putting a
certain queatlon which was objected to by
the county attorney.

The third annual meeting of the Second
district of the Ncbracka Federation of
Women's Clubs, held In Omaha Monday,
waa altogether profitable, and Indicates
that, with a little more experience and time.
It will be possible for Nebraska to give up
the annual for the biennial convention, as
Iowa and some of the older and stronger
states are doing. The district organisation
has much to work out before It will be
ready for this. At present the responsibil
ity of the program falls largely. If not en
tirely, upon the district vice president. If
the district meeting Is to take the place of
the alternate annual convention, this plan
ill be among the first that It will be nec
essary to change. No matter how compe
tent the vice president nlsy be, or how
widely familiar with the needs and Inter
ests of her district, no one person should
be entrusted with the entire responsibility
of the program. There should be a program
committee, and. first of all. the Interests
of the several state standing committees
should be consulted In making up the pro
gram. It is a question whether one day will
then be sufficient for a serious, worthy con
sideration of alt these, but It could be ac
complished In two days easily and leave
time for the other desirable subjects and
embellishments. If the meetings come bi
ennially, the work of the general federa
tion should be seriously considered, and
certainly all matters pertaining to the state
work should be thoroughly discussed and
understood by every woman present. That
Is quite possible under the present arrange
ment but such a responsibility would be
rather a hardship for the vice president.
Ample time should be allowed, however, for
the presentation of state matters and noth
ing should be allowed to encroach. The
fact that the state business was not more
fully discussed was the one regrettable fea
ture of Monday's convention. It hsd been
planned evidently that the round table con
ducted by the state president should ac
complish this, but many of the women were
timid and the latitude of which the subject
admitted, 'How the Stale Federation Can
Help the Club, and How the Club Can Help
the Federation." resulted in considerable
random talk, while if the several subjects
It was desired to discuss had been presented
topically there would have been no waste
of time In bringing definite discussion. Un
der the direction of Mra. Charles Selleck of
Blair club Interest and work In the Second
district have flourished this year and Mon
day's meeting waa at once a credit to Its
chairman and the organisation.
The new directory of Women's Clubs -f
America, Issued recently by Miss Helen
Wlnslow, shows nearly 5,ono clubs in the
GeneVal Federation. Every state and tfr-
rltory In the United States except Vir
