Could ,ot See Nelson.
He said he could not see Nelson, but lie
saw the barkeeper fall. After he bad run
some distance he says Warren caught up
with him and they went to Washington hall.
The statement confirms Nelson's story of
the purchase of the 32-caltber revolver with
which the' shooting was done, by Nelson
and Angus, and adds the. gun was turned
over to O'Hearn the night of the murder.
The Incident at Washington hall is added
In a postscript.
"I asked O'Hearn If he shot the man be
hind the bar and he answered: 'Yes, I
smoked him.' "
In his statement Joe Warren suid he was
23 years old -When they arrived at the sa
loon the first time he said he, O'Hearn and
Angus went Into the saloon, bought a glass
of beer and went out, afterward meeting
Nelson. 8omeone, he did not know who,
aid: "We will stick up that place,"
They went back to the saloon and War
ren said he thought O'Hearn. Angus and
Nelson went ,ln the place, though he was
not sure all. of them entered. . He was told
to watch the back door to "stall" those
who started to go Jn. He was told to ask
them for a match In order to stop them.

"Ijwent tq' I he,' back door," he says, ."but

He , says Angus' caught, up with him and
they proceeded to Washington hall, where
they met O'tloarn and Nelson.. He said he

fulness that he is able to relieve bis mind,
by' confessing the whole thing. -r- i.

the saloon nnd wss now convinced Nelson
was not In the crowd at all and that It
was O'Hearn who had the light overcoat

who had four fingers off one hand. The
defense tried to discredit his story, bu
he justified the change In hi testimony
by the fact he had since testifying seen
the men ss they were dressed when he saw
them In the saloon.
Michael Reagan, who works In the gro
cery department at Hayderi's, was with
Born In the salotnn and he testified ss to

statements made In writing at the police
station by Warren, Angus and Nelson,

them. Nelson's statement Is practically
the same as his story on the witness stand.

them " back to Omaha. While they were
in charge of Mostyn and Officer Cook they
were handcuffed together In a hack and

When O'Hearn was asked if he had any
statement to make he replied: "I have
nothing to say." '

for the officers to keep, boys out. of the

Omaha Men Retnrn from Chicago
Meetlnsr Encouraged for '
Retter Rates.
Omaha's delegation to the meeting of
Missouri river Jobbers In Chicago and to
the conference of traffic managers of west
ern railroads in that city Tuesday has
returned. The members of the party wore
Charles II. Pickens, W. 8. Wright, J.
Clarke Colt. John S. Brady, A. C. Smith,
T. C. Byrne and E. J. McVann, commis
sioner of the Commercial club. Thirty
five Jobbers of "Omaha, Council Bluffs,
Kansas City, St. Joseph and 8loux City
were present at t,he conference, their pur
pose being to convince the traffic managers
of the Justice of a reduction in class rates
from the seaboard to Missouri river points.
"I am confident that our arguments will
do some good," said Charles II. Pickens.
"Several of the traffic managers admitted,
after we bad stated our case, that Missouri
river Jobbers ought , tp be afforded some
relief. Whether .."our" suggestions were
practicable or not,,- they said they were
not able to1 dotersilne on short notloe, but
they , promisod '16 take the matter under
erloua consideration , and try to formulate
some good plan for-affording relief.
"Class rates from the seaboard to this
section of . the country are without doubt
too high. The present basis was estab
lished years ago. when the Jobbing points
along the Mississippi were of great lm.
portance as compared with the newer busi
ness along the Missouri, and of course the
western towns were not entitled to so
much Consideration then. Things have
changed, and the, Titles along the Missouri
are larger Jobbing points than the Missis
sippi towns, except St. Louis. We think
the roads ought to change the rates.
"Beside allowing us to make lower prices
on merchandise to the retail trade, a
decrease In tariffs would put us on a moro
equal basis with St. Paul and Minneapolis,
and put us in -a position to bid for the
trade of South , Dakota.. Under existing
conditions the Twin cities have all the ad
vantage there. , .
"The dry goods, shoe, millinery and drug
houses are more interested In a reduction
of .class rates than the grocers and hard
ware men, for the . reason that the latter
enjoy commodity rates on carloads, allow
ing them to ship at less, than class rates,
and thus giving them an advantage ovei
their eastern competitors."

Superintendent of Associated Chari
ties Learns that Organisation
Is Incorporated Body.
Although having worked for years under
the direction of the International Christian
Institute, the committee of Associated
Charities has Just discovered that it is an
Incorporated body, entirely Independent of
the institute, and has reorganized its
forces. .
The discovery was made by Superintend
ent Stephen Morris of tho Associated Char
ities in looking ovtsr the records at the
court house. He found a record of the
filing of articles of Incorporation for the
organization in 1S93 and by these articles
the Associated Charities was empowered
to carry on Its work for thirty years. It

few years ago, when the institution was
hot very active In charity work, the provi
sions of the articles were entirely forgotten
by the members' of the tioard, so that It
was an easy matter for the International
Christian Institute later to take the organi
sation under Its wing. The members of
the old board confess they thought the
articles had mentioned a short term of
years and ib'.t the Associated Charities
had lived Its allotted time.
Recently there has been considerable talk
of getting away from the control of the
Institute, for, as Mr. Morris says, "in
order to make the organization co-operative
with all charities In the development of
the work and to maintain an equal rela
tion to all charities, the need of indepen
dence was felt." Mr. Morris was working
on this Idea he went to look at the
