Thers was irtui h comment, both fsvorabls
and. adverse, yesterday on the action of
..the n-lty council Tuesday night orderlnii
ths fiurrhaaa or a city hall site. A great
" than y people looked with suspicion on the
'. transaction, but few went no far aa to
think that the whole business wan Illegal
.and that the' party who proposed to dispose
: of "his 'property to the city laid himself
liable to a fine of not less than ll.Of nor
more, than' 15.000. But. such Is the fart of
the Case. Tble brand , its tement Is baaed
on the clear provisions of the atatutea of
Nebraska. Anyone whd wishes may read
and assure himself of the facts. The first

officer being Interested In any contract In
which the city, Is a, party, and also for

which provide that the city officer be not

It has been learned that the Lithuanian
societies of South Omaha wlah to be known
as an orranlzatlon distinct from that
known as the Polish republican clubs.
They wish It to be known that their name
Is the Lithuanian republican club and that
their voting strength is not to be counted
as part of the voting strength of the Polish
societies. It is to be understood alao that
neither Mr. Madura, nor Mr.- Urbanaki
were to be blamed for the grouping of the
two organisations In the press. The state

'lofto Keeper Admits B.erlaT Three
tears for Robber?. ,
Mike fcnrighl. charged with holding up
the saloon of Adam Purkls at Pouth
Omaha, went on the witness stand in his
own behalf at the afternoon session of
court yesterday. He denied havlng been
In Rurkls' saloon on the dny of the rob
bery and said he did not see the witness
who Identified him. He admitted on cross
examination that he had served a term
of three years In the penitentiary for
robbery. For the purpose of Impeaching
his testimony tho state introduced an affi
davit signed by him alleging he waa In
Indigent circumstances, and then brought
out In his evidence that he la the owner
of a part Interest In a house In Booth
At 4 o'clock the defense ran out of wit
nesses and an adjournment was tak'n until
Friday morning. As Thursday is a holiday
no sesalon of the court will be held.
The progress of the trial was slow
because the lawyers and the court got In
a tangle over the pronunciation of the
names of several of the Polish and Lithu
anian witnesses for the state.
The first trouble came when Martin
Iibanowaky was on the stand. He was
In the saloon at the time of the holdup.
Attorney Murphy for the defense ob
jected to his testifying because bis name
appeared on the Information as "Martin
Linlskl." Judge Sutton had the witness
pronounce his name several times, and
railing to discover any resemblance be
tween the rial name and that on the In
formation sustained the objection. A sim
ilar objection was made to the next wit
ness, but by agreement It waa decided to
excuse him until the afternoon session,
by which time the attorneys will argue
the matter to the court.
Mike Vorak, the bar keeper, testified as
Id the holdup. He said F.ntight entered
the saloon anil bought a glass of beer and
a minute or two later he heard a shot
fired In front of the saloon and Enright
hustled him Into the Ice box and locked
him up. He said he was so scared he did
not stop to take a minute survey of the
situation, so his Identification was not very
positive. Other witnesses Identified En
right as the man who entered the saloon
Just before the shot was fired.

lS-yoar-old bride .waiting to twine her
arms about hla neck and weleome him
home when hla dny'a work la done. For
three months he has been happy, but It
la all over now. When he arrived at their

the usual oscillatory greeting from a fond

youth, he was rudely shocked to find a

Bupperlesa and excited Pettlt rushed to
the police station and announced that his
wife had left him. The deserted husband
Is but 21 years old and hardly looks older
or bigger than a l(!-yar-old boy, and his
statement was received with nueh In
credulity at first. Captain Dunn thought
It more likely that this waa a hoy. who
had run away from his mother. However,
his story came out at last and a descrip
tion of the missing spouse was taken by
Desk Sergeant Havey.
Pettlt said he met his wife lust summer
while lie was following his warm weather
vocation of balloon ascensionlst, their
marriage following In November. He said
they had always lived happily together,
never had any tjuarrels and that he was at
a loss to understand her strange action.

'Omaha Is associated In my mind with a

with members of my family In Florence,

foreign newspapers and periodicals were
kept. One evening T remember being In
the reading room with the table covered
with copies of the London Telegraph. Lou
don Times, the Paris Herald, and contl-
netal publications, when an elderly lady
who was also stopping at the hotel fingered
them all over and exclaimed In a most
pathetic tone: 'How 1 wish I could find
a copy of the Omaha Bee!" I'ntortunately,
none of us could supply the paper that
would have satisfied her home yearning."
