wueen of the fnltcd States fleet In Chi
rese waters at present Is the battleship
Ohio. Which Is also the flagship of the fleet.
In case of a diversion with tho Chinese
growing out of the present somewhat
threatening condition of affairs, the Ohio
will be ono of the most Influential factors in
settling the affair properly. On the Ohio
at present Is an Omaha lad, son of Deputy
County Clerk Frank Dewey, who has been
on the Ohio now lor nearly two ear. At
present he has the rating of seaman and
remarks he considers the berth a pretty
good birthday present, coming aa It did
Just about the time of hla 17th anniversary.
Young Dewey says In one of his last let
ters that the chief gunner on the Ohio waa
then expecting to got the world's record
for gunnery. "He has the after twelve
Inch turret, the ona I am in," say the
writer, and adds, "If he does, you bet I
will feel good."
He protests about the malls being de
layed (Ihe Ohio was then nt Cavlte, P. I.,
where It has been cruising around since
last November), and says they cannot
Imagine why. Waiting for word of the
home folks beoomes Irksome to the boys,
for. says Dewey In one letter to his mother,
"There Is not much going on here now ex
cept working parties ashore, but as soon as
we have record target practice I guess we
are going back to Hong Kong." The Ohio
hua since been ordered to Hong Kong.
Boy Life In the avy.
Besides the dull times In Philippine
water, the Jackie jn the American ships
have the same trials as the most prosaic
landltibliers. "I have Just paid 24 for hav
ing my teeth shot to pieces and then filled,"
say the boy, without any comment. He
also remarks in one letter that they had
Just arrived at Nanking. China, from Che
foo and Woosung, where the men In the
first section got shore leave, but a he Is fn
the second ho had lo remain on shipboard.
"After threo daya there (Nanking) If wag
u.i anchor at 2 bells in the morning and
proceed Up the Yangt&e Kiang. We were
within a mile of shore all the time, and
sometimes within twenty-five feet. The
river I something like the Missouri at
home a pandbar here today and tomorrow
none. The pilot has his own troubles.
After leaving Woosung the country Is al
most a mud Rat,
"The valley of this river Is depended
upon by China for the greater part of. Its
rice for. export, and It Is nothing but rice
fields, huts (with about six families living
In each) and canals, the latter for sam
pan and for Irrigation purposes.
Brnah with River Pirate.
"I wa upon the forecastle the other even
ing and aome sampans were coming down
the river. We did not pay any attention
to them until they came almost alongside,
when we discovered they were river pirates.
They had a small gun mounted on bo'.h
sides. During that night we dropped
anchor off a place the first 'luff,' called
Pigtown, because , of the droves on the
banks. A bright lookout was kept all night,
as some of these river pirates surprised
a German gunboat up here about time
years ago and killed all but one man. They
make a bomb which we call a stink bomb,
and when these are lighted they give off
an odor no white, man can stand. When
they attacked the German gunboat they
threw these bombs aboard and suffocated
all hut the one man, who got In one of the
sails aloft above the stink. Of course there
Is no danger of them attacking one of these
ships, but the commanders are always on
Moving? is the Hirer.
"Next morning all hands called at 5, up
anchor and up the river again. At 7 o'clock j
we passed the Klaug forts, which are pretty I
well fortified. They have batteries on top
of five mountains. Iiesldes the smaller ones
at and near the base. The Chinese flag
was hoisted In the forts when we passed
and the sentries on duty saluted us. After
passing the forts the country Is mountain
ous and the landscape Is swell. We passed
two other sets of forts before arriving nt
Nanking, the old capital or China. We
can't see anything of the city from the ship,
as It la inside of a great wall. Everything
In China is behind a wall. The tombs here
The trip bark down the river was unin
teresting, says young Dewey, as "we were
breaking out gear to coal ship." This was
done ut Woosung, while lying alongside
"the good old Oregon and two Chinese
cruisers (not much)."
In, it Jettr written early In October last
Seumri Dewoy enclosed the programs of
two concerts given on the Ohio, Ontober 6
at Chin Klaug Fu. and October " nt Nan

six numbers on each program and Hand
master Genovese made some Snappy se
lections, among the pieces rendered being
"Yii.ikiana," which, it can easily be
guexjrd, mode Mrs. Longworth "think of
tint of the Way for visitors.
An incident Is mentioned, when Miss
Roosevelt and the Taft parly w.re visiting
the ships, which evidently put mine of the
sallormen out a- bit. They were ordered
from one part of the ship where thev
evidently would much rather have re
mained, "so that some of the visitors
could have nice little tete-a-tetes, as some
of the lads put it," It is rather hinted
that the night was of thu kind when
moonlight tete-a-tutes would be very pop

no decisive action will be taken at this ses

Mr. Rrerk'urldge spent most of his time
while away from Omaha at Washington
and he appeared before the house Judiciary
committee and argued In favor of the
legality of natlohal Insurance supervision.
His views were opposed by other eminent
lawyers, but Mr. Breckenridge presented
his view, which he formulated some time
ago and ha seen no reason to change.
"1 appeared In an entirely private and
dlslntereted way," sold Mr. Breckenridge.
"While I do not look for any action on tho
matter during the session of the present
congress, jet the question will not down. It
is bound to be forced up and It Is only a
question oi time until a great deal of pra
stire will be brought to bear on congress for
legislation placing the Control and regula
tion of Insurance companies under the fed

meantime the supreme ccurt speaks on the
point In a direct and certain manner. If
the supreme court holds against the propo

never had :t constitutional amendment nut

BEST SYSTEM FOR JURIES
Question of ' Not Isolating Them
Dlscnsaed aa Heaolt of
The resolution presented to Judge Sutton
by the Jury that tried the Allen murder
Tase. In which the Jurors thanked the
Judge for not requiring them to be lorked
up during the trial, were the subject of
considerable discussion among attorneys
Saturday morning. Judge Sutton said that
Inasmuch ns he had to deal with Juries in
criminal cases he did not care to express
an opinion aa to whether or not Juries in
general In Important cases should be Iso
lated except that the conditions surround
ing the rase should be taken Into considera
tion. He did not think a general rule could
"Wo do not demand that Juries be iso
lated," said County Attorney glabaugh.
"except In cases where there Is great public
Interest or excitement, and then It Is only
fair to tho Jurors that we keep thein away
from tho public. We have had cases where
friends of the accused approached Jurors
greatly to tbe embarrassment of the Jurors,
though no blame at all attached to them.
The personnel of the Jury and the condi
tions surrounding the trial ought to be
taken Into consideration by the Judge. I
do not believe that business men when
they ask to be excused take Into considera
tion the fact they may be locked up aa
they are kept away from their business
during business hour anyway."
J. M. Macfarland. who defended Allen.
; said he thought the court ahould take Into
consideration the makeup of the Jury and
the cmdlilor ut der -which the .n. I
tried. In the rne of the Allen Jury, he
said, there wa no need of isolating the
Jurors, because they wc-re well known men,
whose Integrity was unquestioned. He
thought a better grade of Jurors might be
secured If the isolation rule were not re
quired, though he did not think It would
do to allow the Jurors their freedom In all
Judge Troup expressed practically the
same opinion. 1"iils the Isolation of the
Jury I required by statute ho thought the
Judttc should exercise his discretion, taking
Into considcratlori the nuii on the Jury
and nature of the case. Business men, he
though, would probably not ohjert so
