HUSBAND GETS THE DIVORCE
Mil a4 for Separation la Given
Inn Papers Hla Crose-Petltlaa.
Judge Kennedy yesterday refused to give
S divorce to- Mrs. Emily Schuchardt on
her petition, but granted the decree to her
husband. Edmund Schuchardt, on hie cross-petition.-
' ha cave the custody of the fifteen-year-old
daurhter to the father un
til further order of the court with tha un
derstanding he was to keep her In a Cath
olic school. Mr. Schuchardt stated on the
stand that he was a Lutheran and his wife
was s member of the Mormon church, but
both of them agreed to the daughter going
to a Catholic school.
The peculiar feature of the case is that
Mrs. Schuchardt secured a divorce by de
fault about year ago and two days later
went to Council BlufTs and married Charles
P. Deutgtnann, a nephew of her husband.
Her husband Immediately secured a decree
setting aside the divorce and she was In
the unusual position of having two hus
bands. There la question now that the
divorce Is granted whether her marriage
with Deutxmann is legal or not.
Judge Kennedy has gr-nted decree of
divorce to Fred Morane mho charged his
wife. Rhuhami, with desertion since Jan
uary l, 90l. They were married In L-

Non-support was the' principal reason
given In her testimony by Oussie Bmyth.

More Meet lags.
Seventy-live me'nbers of the Fifth Ward
Equal Rights club were treated Monday
night to some edifying arguments on why
and why not City Treasurer Hennings
should be elected mayor of Omaha. The
chief debaters were W. I. Klerslead and
John Coffey, who, upon Investigation, was
found to be a democrat, so registered last
Coffey opened up the fireworks by a vig
orous denunciation of Mannings and a se
vere rebuke of the club.
"Why, this man Hennings is nut fit to
be mayor. He is not fit to be city treas
urer. What kind of a treasurer has he
made? He has been talked of so much as
a vigilant enforcer of law because he
levied on property to compel payment of
taxes. But he never levied on any prop
erty except that of a poor man. No one
ever heard of him levying on a lawyer's
property to compel the payment of taxes."
That was when things got good. It was
at that Juncture that Ivieretead shied his
castor into the ring. Now, during the day
It fell to the lot of Mr. Kief stead to be
riding on the hind end of the same street
car with K. W. Sinicral, lawyer. And Mr.
Simeral was engaged in one of tils cus
tomary rear-end political speeches, loudly
denouncing City Treasurer Hennings aa
being unfit for mayor. Klerstead, not being
certain of a thought which presented Itself
to him while Simeral was declaiming,
kept quiet, but at the first opportunity he
ked City Treasurer Ileunings if lie ever
had had any trouble with E. W. Simeral.
Trouble? ell, I snouid say so," re
plied Hennings. "I had to levy on tlia
worth of Slmcral's office fixtures and books
for payment of taxes he owed the city."
"I thought so," said Klerslead.
So when Mr. Coffey, in his thrilling pero
ration, came to those burning words, "No
one ever heard of him levying on the
property of a lawyer to compel the pay
ment of taxes," Mr. Klerstead arose.
"I beg pardon for interrupting," he said,
"but I must take issue with the gentle
man on that point. I am prepared to say
that Mr. Hennings, as city treasurer, has
levied for taxes on the property of at least
two lawyers, E. W. Simeral and John T.
Mr. Coffey evidently had concluded his
remarks when Klerstead arose.
Then Mr. Klerstead added a word oV two.
Another member of the club arose to
ask Mr. Coffey If he was not a democrat,
"Yes. I am." said Coffey.
"Then what did you thrust yourself upon
this club for?"
The secretary of the club was instructed
to send Mr. Coffey a notice of dismissal
ea one man. but since the withdrawal of
Mr. Smith from the race the meeting was
practically a Jollification ovr the foie
cssted nomination of James Dahlman.
W. C. Bullard was called to the chair
and he called upon representatives lrotn
each ward to tell of the situation as It
existed and to make recommendations for
future action. All vouched for their loy
alty to Mr. Dahlman and all spoke for a
strong counctlmanic . ticket, a tilt h would
be a great help to Mr. Dahlman In Lis
Mr. Dahlman was called upon and ex
pressed surprise at the large attendance,
saying he expected to see about fifteen
democrats out. He added:
"If I understand the purpose of this
meeting it Is to get the rank and file to
gether, and then go into the wards and
precincts to select tbe best committeemen
possible. I said over my signature I would
call the leaders and candidates together
to make a platform, and I will do that
and will stand by that platform. I never
made a promise in my life I did not carry
out, and I consider each man on the ticket
haa as much right to assist in making the
platform as the head of the ticket. If
you give me K per cent of the democratic
vote of this city I will walk Into the office
on the hill. All we have to do is to get
together. We have had factions, but all
are now ready to unite, bury the hatchet
and get behind the ticket. I would like
to ask why a democrat cannot support
me. I always go into a fight thinking I
will win, and 1. don't think I will show
any white feather in this fight.
When this wss first suggested to me I
had no idea of running, but I had ten men
spend three days getting the sentiment of
the people and then I decided to run. i
now 1 am gaining strength all the time.
We will hare a good organisation, and
hether we win or lose we will present a
united front to the enemy."
Mr. Dahlman met with an enthusiastic
reception after his declaration and was
ollowed by other sneakers for democracy.
Including John Power. Tom Flynn. Dr. S.
R. Patten, W. T. Canada. Louis Piattl.
John Murphy. E. P. Ben-yman. W. S. Shoe
maker, Ed Rothery and others.
At a well attended meeting of the Fourth
Ward Equal Rights club last evening a
new candidate, for councilman from the
Fourth ward was brought out by the en
dorsement of Charles M. Bachman by an
lmost unanimous vote. Mr. Bachman Is
an old resident of the ward and served
wo years as Juntice of the peace. He will
probably file today for a place on the offi

Louis Kasuiussen, one of the twele men
who set Pat Crowe free and one of the
four Crowe Jurors who received letters or
dering them to leave the city within a
certain time or take the consequences, :'s
on another Jury. He was passed by both
state and defense yesterday afternoon an
Judge Sutton's court In the rase of Michael
Enrtght, charged with holding up. a saloon
keeper In South Omaha. Charles M. Tracv,
another Crowe Juror, wa passed by th
defense, but expelled by the slate.
On the ground the public mind is in
flamed on account of the verdict in the
Crowe case, the attorneys for Michael En
right, the defendant in a criminal case
before the district court, sought to secure
a continuance of the hearing in his case
Newspaper clippings giving expressions of
opinion, both editorially and in quotitlons
from others, were read In court for the
purpose of showing a prejudice against all
persons charged with crime exists in
Omaha and vicinity. After listening to
arguments Judge Sutton refused to grant
the continuance. In doing so he said it
was possible the Jurors in the Crowe case
might want to "square themselves in
the public nlnd by bringing In a verdict of
guilty, but he did not think this influence
would extend to other members of the
panel. He gave the defense the right to
challenge for cause any of the Jurors who
sat on the Crowe case, should they be
called, and promised they would be ex
cused If the defense so desired, for no
other reason than the fact they served on
tbe Crowe Jury.
Moeh Crime of Late.
The affidavit, which was signed by En
right, set forth the fact there has been an
unusual amount of crime in Omaha and
South Omaha recently and public opinion
has been worked up on account of it. The
verdict in the Crowe case, It continues, so
Inflamed public opinion that Jurors would
hardly dare bring in verdicts of not guilty.
It calls attention to the action by the
Woman's club and also to the fact that
certain Jurors have received threatening
In his remarks on the affidavit Mr.
Fleharty, attorney for Enright, declared no
man had a right to criticise a Jury for Its
action. Even though they might have been
actuated by the hiphest motives, he said,
the Crowe Jurors could not help but blush
for shame when they read what is said of
thm in the public prints. Mr. Murdock,
in reply, said no one was exempt from
criticism, not even a Juror, if he does
things which the general public condemns.
Because the Crone verdict met with con
demnation was no reason, he held, -why
the courts should disband and go out of
business. He ssid he was willing to ex
cuse Crowe Jurors and had made a proposi
tion to that effect to the defendant's at
torney Monday. County Attorney Bla
bs ugh also discussed the motion along the
Holding- lp of alooa.
Enright is charged with holding up a
saloon belonging to Adam Burkls In South
Omaha on Novamber 14 and securing fflo
in cash. John Berry is a co-defendant
with him. but on motion of the state the
trials will be hod separately over the pro
tests of the defense. It is charged Berry
and Enright went into Burkis' saloon and
locked him In tho Ice box at the point of
a gun while they rifled the money drawer.
In spite of the fears expressed by th
attorneys for the defense they did not
object to the two Crowe Jurors who wer
called to the Jury box. The two Jurors
were Louis Rasmussen and Charles M.
Tiacy. The defence passed both of them
for cause, but the state used Its last per
emptory challenge to strike Tracy's name
from the list. The defense waived its
last two challenges. Rasmussen was left
on the Jury. He Is one of the members
who received the threatening letters which
formed one of the grounds for the motion
for a continuance asked for by the de
fense. The Jury was secured about 4 o'clock and
after a short recess Adam Burkis, the
proprietor of the saloon, was placed ou

to say, but we denounce their action as
prejudicial alike to good government, to
the good name of the city, of which they
should be rwpectable citlaens. and aa hav-
