AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Colonel 0. M. Hunt Gome Tonrari with
City Hall Han.
PROPOSES TO DONATE PROPERTY TO CITY
AuHimrali en Candidates rropoe
ay Democratic Cess salt tee
Fsreed Limit Allowed
Colonel C. M. Hunt ha come forward
with new proposition by which to provide
South Omaha with a site for the new city
hall. He and a number of othera have been
work-in with considerable seal on an
offer of the northwest corner of Twenty
fifth and N streets. It la proposed to
ilonnte the site to the fclty, or nt least put
It at a price much below the value of the
property. He aald Inst night that most
of the parties who had property adjoining
or near the proposed site had been con
sulted in the matter and that considerable
progress had been made In that direction.
A meeting of the varloua property owners
will be held within a day or two for the
purpose of getting together on a . plan.
Many of the owners live In Omaha and It
may be difficult to get them together. It
Is likely that It will be accomplished, how
ever. The property owners do not expect
to be entirely without compensation, for
they reason that the erection of the build
ing will repay them In measure by reason
of the Increased value of the surrounding
property. They reason that with the site
given to- the city it could erect a $70,000
building, which would be a credit to the
city for years to come.- It Is further said
that all the parties to the former contro
versy will bo willing to give up their
propositions, unless It be T. J, O'Nell. It
may be he will still wish to sell his O
street property to the city. It has been
stated that the next time It la offered the
proposition will be $19,0uO for two whole lots

On learning that the new democratic
central committee of South Omaha waa do
termlned to tax the candidates in a grad
uated scale from councllmen to mayor,
some of the wiser heads of the faith are
wondering if the central committee la plan
nlng a suicide of party interests. The rate
of taxation was stated at the first meet
ing of the committee as $50 each for the
councllmen, (126 for the nty attorney, $100
for the city clerk and $160 for the mayor,
treasurer and the tax commissioner.. This
Is now staged by prominent parties who
are close to the pulse of the party to have
been too small and that a raise ia con
tomplated. Their Ideas have gone soar
Ing this time and they propose that the
mayor shall put up $500 for the campaign
fund. 'The iacf 'to 'If ''any ' of the principal
onlrers should contribute such sums they
would be disqualified for their offices by
the law, which fixes the maximum of ex
pence at $100. It to looked on as a curious
bit of engineering on the part of the com

THOMAS CHARGES DISMISSED
Broateh Holds Police Officers Hare
Not Been Derelict of Their
"This board finds that the charges have
not been sustained and the cases against
the police officers are therefore dismissed.
The above statement was the result of
the hearing of the charges made by timer
E. Thomas, attorney for the Civic Federa.
Hon, against Captain Dunn and Sergeant
Hayes before the Board of Fire and Po
lice Commissioners at the meeting Monday
The above pases and the hearing on
charges of violating the Sunday closing
law against Mrs. V. L. Burke, whose
saloon is at Tenth and Davenport streets,
were the principal, matters of business
to come before the board at last night's
meeting and the action taken In each case
wus unfavorable to the prosecution.
The charges against Captain Dunn and
Sergeant Hayes stated in effect the ofM
cers had failed to make arrests In cases
where, saloons were alleged to have been
open for business on Sunday, March 4,
after information had been given. Evl

at a certain time: Adolph Brandes, Twelfth

called and swore he purchased drink at
the Scrupa place and a Mr. Erigelky swors
he was in the Burke saloon from 4:30 to
6:30 p. m. with about twenty-flve others
and that liquor was sold freely. He also
said he saw officers go to the doors and
try them, and finding them locked, leave
the place. Reports of sever, officers and
detectives were submitted and read, - In
which they gave accounts of going to the
saloons In question and finding them
locked, all but ne with the curtains open.
Sergeant Dempsey and Detective Dunn in
their report stated they visited the Burke
saloon and although they found the doors
locked, thought they heard voices within.
Much time was taken up In objections.

Attorney J. W. Parish was present in the
interest of Mrs. Burks and objected to
much of the testimony offered by Mr.
Engelky. The specific charge against Cap
tain Dunn was that he had practically re
fused to send out ofllcers to make arrests
when Mr. Thomas called at the station with
the complainants. Captain Dunn showed
he had not refused but said he had no men
In the station at the time to send out and
that he left word with the police operator
to have the sergeants call him up for in
structions when they should report. He said
he advised Mr. Thomas to take the usual
action of filing complaints with the prose
cutor. The charge against Sergeant Hayes was
ha had failed to arrest the proprietor of the
Brandes place after Mr. Thomas had met
him on the street and asked him to do so.
The sergeant swore he went to the saloon
as requested, but found the doors locked
and no one Inside so far as he could see.
It waa, therefore, decided by the board that
the charges themselves as pertaining to tha
officials had not been sustained and the
cases were ordered dismissed.
The case against Mrs. W. L. Burke on
charges of violating the Sunday closing
law was then called and began with the
reading of an opinion from City Attorney
Breen, In which he stated the board is not
a competent tribunal to try sucn a case
and Inflict punishment or revoke a license
on the strength of the testimony. Citations
were made to support the opinion. The
board, therefore, made the ruling that It
wold refuse to hear 'the case. Mr. Thomas
took exception and said he wanted the tes
timony to go on record. It was arranged
to have the board refuse to place the tes
timony on record, when Mr. Thomas gave
notice of appeal to the district court and
demanded a copy of the proceedings to be
furnished at his own expense.
The only other business of importance
transacted by the board was the renewal of
the Waso of the fire station premises at
Eighteenth and Harney streets for another
year at the new rate, $3,150.

Collections are slow In Washington. Last
week the senate considered a bill to pay E.
B. Rogers, pay director In the navy, $1,000
for personal property lost by him In a fire
which destroyed the. Windsor hotel, Yoko
hama, February $, 1SW5. The hotel was his
office and home. Mr. Rogers, then an as
sistant paymaster, escaped from the hotel
with his wife and his life, the clothes they
had on and his watch, which happened to
bo In his waistcoat pocket. He was obliged
to abandon the cash box, payroll and a few
things which he had hastily got together.
He carried or dragged his wife the length
of the building, creeping on his hands and
knees. A board of Investigation held him
blameless as to the loss of government
property. His personal losses he asks the
congress to provide for. Here is his list of
uniform equipment, clothing and outfit,
burned at a time which he neatly decrlbes
as "on the night of February 7, 18S8, at
about 4 'o'clock a. m.":

The secretary of the navy approved the bill
and the committee on naval affairs recom
mended that It be passed. In 1903 a bill to
pay Postmaster Tolfree $4,000 for losses in
the same fire became a law. Last week ths
senate was less accommodating. Mr. M al
io ry thought it an extraordinary procedure
to reimburse Mr.. Rogers for effects lost In
a hotel fire. Ths, vice president said, with
his usual quick perception of essential
"That the fire occurred In a hotel Is ob
vious from the face of the report."
Mr. Baoon wanted whoever reported ths
bill to give some explanation on the sub
ject Mr. Blackburn, who reported the bill,
was absent. So the hill went Over, retain
ing Its place. ;'
Mr. Rogers may - deem himself unfairly
treated when he compares the senate's crit
ical inspection of his bill with Its good na
ture to Tolfree. But Mr. Rogers has only
himself to blame. Can the Hon. Joseph
Clay Stiles Blackburn explain to the senate
why he affronted Its dignity and the dignity
of the English tongue by permitting blue
pants" and special full dress "pants" and
blue cloth "pants" to be hung upon the
record? "Civilian clothes" were not In
cluded in the bill. : Will the senate stand
for "pants"? Moreover, will it approve the
luxury of pajamas? Are not nightshirts
good enough for the plain people? New
WAYS OF BRAIN WORKERS
No Rales of Diet Will Apply Rack
Indlvleaal m Rale Veto
Lives of great men usually remind us
that we cannot make our lives sublime by
following their rules about diet, drink,
work and sleep. Gladstone's rule about
chewing his food with many bites before
swallowing It was excellent sense, a good
rulj for every one. But Thomas Edison,
being interviewed the other day about his
habits, advocated more work as a cure for
overwork and little food and not much
sleep as highly beneficial. Digestion easily
becomes a tax on vitality, and remarkable
benefits sometimes come from cutting down
the rations of an ailing person. Moreover,
a change of employment Is restful. But
tha faculty will hardly back Mr. Edison
In advocating less sleep for the majority of
mankind, or In prescribing harder work aa
a cure for overwork. Mark Twain con
fesses that he has lately cured himself of
Indigestion by substituting three or four
frugal meals a day for one big one. Think
of this keeping up, and so well up, these
many years on one meal a day! When you
run the very small eaters to . earth you
usually find that they are pretty steady
and generous consumers of tobacco. Uncle
Mark smokes a lot. Mr. Edison smokes.
Horace Fletcher, the English prophet of
little to eat and chew It very fine, is a
fairly constant smoker. Mark . Twain is
not conscious of taking any exercise, and
when he has somelhl'uj Important to do he
stays abed until it is done. Any beginner
who followed this rtgimtn of Mr. Edison
would come punctually to grief. The truth
Is a seasoned mind-worker of mature years
is apt to be one of the toughest things that
nature's laboratory produces. He Is apt to
be In considerable measure poison-proof
at least he has learned, usually, what he
can do, and what he, cannot do, with al
cohol, tobacco, coffee and tea. And he haa
usually learned not to burden his body with j
an unnecessary amount of food, or else
his habits of digestion are so perfected
that nothing Jolts them. An average first
night foot bail player is a baby in the im
portant kinds of hardiness compared with
a thoroughly seaeonud lawyer or writer.

There is a controversy In England be
tween the doctors and opticians,- who
have been tnereaaing their sclentlfla equip
ment and prescribing at a much lower
price than the oculists, while general prac
titioners, as a rule, know little about optics
and the prescription -of glaases. It Is a
curious thing that there has been no organ
ised crusade by the profession against
allowing the public to select its own spec
tacles from the exposed stock, as has been
the practice ever since glaases came Into
use in the seventeenth century, though this
is obviously more injurious. But now that
the opticians have undertaken to prescribe
the doctors want thai forbidden by act of
Parliament, leaving the public free as be
fore to choose its own spectacle The, op
ticians have prepared -a counter bill pro
viding for opticians' diplomas to 4m awarded
by a central council of the whole trade.

Naturally, Mr. Fairbanks has had many
Interesting letters. One writer says that
shs loved him an soon as she saw his
"photo in the paper," and that she is con
sumed with great fear lest she should lose
him. Though she does not care for farm
life, she says that she "could live any place
looking Into those dear eyes- of yours."
Another aspirant Infornis Mr. Fairbanks
that she. too, Is "lonesome," and adds that
ths man is probably wise In making his
"wants known, although it la a little out
of the usual." This woman Is a newspaper
woaker, "well educated, refined and sympa
thetic In nature, five feet three Inches, and
of medium complexion." The third appli
cant, . whatever else she msy bo, is cer
tainly not well educated. "I have." she
writes, "seen your ad for wive In Post."
and she "thot" she "wood write." "I am,"
she continues, "a woman of .thirty year,
128 pouns, tall, with dirk eyes and fair
hair." This sus-gests the man of old time
who was "stabbed with a white wench's
black eye." We know, also, that there
are "daggers In men's smiles." But the
"I am a wldo and has two children, the
small Is 11 year. I am no bad habits and
a good housekeeper. I thank you will be
the right mar for me that I have ben
looking fur. I have a good home. And I
wull like a good husband. J lived on a
farm when my husband he lived."
But surely had spelling Is no disqualifica
tion. Once everyone speft had!'-. Once It
was bad form to spell correctly It indi
cated the achoolmaster or peseieue rather
than the gentleman. The "dirk eyea" In
this case should more than compensate for
the dame orthography. But the prize letter
we have eaVd to the last Here Is the
wav the woman celebrates herself:
"I am 2S years of age, strong and fat
good . looking. I have dark brown, wavy
hair, very even teeth, like a row of pearls
and form, that, would break any man's
heart. I weigh 125 pounds and am of a
loving disposition. Am a resident of Bark
Bay and would like to meet you at your
Why should Mr. Fairbanks seek further?
The woman with "dirk eyes" Is all well
enough, but she hardly seems to be in the
same class with one who is "strong, fat
and good looking." and who has "very
even teeth, like a row of pearls, and form
that would break any man's heart," Bursty
ths quest should cease with .this daughter
of the gods. Whether the gentleman Is
worthy of such a prize we do not know,
for we have not seen his portrait, or read
his autobiography. But Into that question
we do not care to enter at this time. ' We
simply suggest that the entries be closed.

Hemarkable Case In Which the Fore

An instance comes to mind, one of the
most extraordinary in the history of out
legul system, the account of wuicn we owu
to the man who tried and presided over tllu
trial. Xxrd Chief Justice lyer. This was a
"clear case" of murder. Tha victim had
been found stabbed to death in a field
wood, by his side the pitchfork with which
the deed hud been done. The man who
owued the fork w;as arrested, and tha
blood-stained suit he wore was found hid
den in a mattress.
Short of testimony from anyone who had
seen the crime actually committed, there
was not a link missing from the chain of
evidence agaliibt the prisoner. It was lu
vain that he pleaded not guilty; everything
was so conclusively clear against hiin. A
verdict of guilty was expected Immediately
from the Jury, but the foreman apked that
as the life of a fellow creature waa at
stake the jury might be allowed to retire.
The Judge did not understand why they
should do so In so slmpl a case; still, the
jury had its wish. It did not return. The
court adjourned for lunch; the Jury did
not come back In the afternoon, and in
spite of several anxious . Inquiries from
the bench it had not made up its mind
when the court rose for the day there
was one man holding out. The jury was
locked up for the night, and In the morn
ing was brought into court to return a
verdict of not guilty. This was a poser,
and the Judge dismissed the jury, saying:
"The blood of the deceased lies at your
Private Inquiry by the judge elicited the
fact that the foreman, a man of unblem
ished reputation and of considerable es
tate, had been the cause of the verdict,
which ths rest had been starved Into ac.
ccptlng. The Judge sent for this gentle
man, and in his private room begged him
to explain the mystery of his obduracy' and
the amazing finding of his fellows, first
pledging himself to presrve Inviolate any
confidence which the other might repose in
him. Then the foreman told htm how ha
himself had met the victim for whose mur
der the prisoner had been tried, how this
man had aought to take advantage of his
official position and exact unjust tithes,
how they had quarreled and fought, how
the mae- had attempted to kill him with a
fork, and how he (the foreman of the Jury!
had killed hla antarrnnlst with his own
pitchfork, then fled. The prisoner, coming
along, had found the man dying, and In en
deavoring to succor him had got blood
upon his clothes, and In his confusion had
taken the dead man's fork and left his
own. In Its place. Tills was why the fore
man had held out. and why the prisoner
escaped. Ixmdon Phronlrle.
