CHICAGO, 'April W.-Dr. John Alexander
Dowle will not advance on the "hosts of

after a long consultation with his legal
adviser. 'KmiJ E. Walton, Dowle gave out
the statement that It might be several days
before he saw fit to enter the city which
he had founded. "The First Apostle' ar

a cheer arose and he was greeted with au
assortment of welcomes, ranging from the
reverent "Peace be with you" of the Zion

This same determination of. spirit was
manifested at Zion City tonight when at

to send all branches of the church through

Regarding the order, W. H. Piper, one of

After exanflnltig most of the ninety-right
veniremen, the twelve men named were
selected yesterday morning to try the case
of Harrison Clark, charged with the murder
of Edward Flury, the street car conductor,
March 8, at the Albright end of the Thir
teenth street line.. ( The prevailing senti
ment against rapKSI punishment was the
obstacle In securing- the . Jury.
Oathrlatht Act-nsea Clark.
Clarence Gathrlgfit, one of the three
negtoea who attempted the holdup of Flury,
which resulted In the murder of the latter,
went on; the witness stand yesterday and
testified against Harrison Clark, who Is on
trial before Judge Button for the crime.
Oathrlght's testimony was along the same
lines as his previous confession made
shortly arter hts arrest. His story was the
Interesting feature of the day.
When the session began at 2 o'clock
County Attorney Slalmugh made the open
ing statement to. the Jury, detailing the
movements of the three defendants on the
night of the crime. He offered to show
Clark had borrowed a revolver the day
before the shooting and had returned It
shortly after It. Clark, he said, had a
3S-caliber revolver and the bullet taken
from the body of the murdered conductor
was a 38.
Hugh Myers, for the defendant made no
statement of what the defense would be.
Motorman Fred 6. Pattersom who was on
the front end of the ear, was the first
witness to take the- stand. He did not
see any of the men close enough to Iden
tify them.- He noticed two or three men
poming toward the- csr as It was stadlng
at the Albright switch. Then Flury got
off the car to turn the switch with his foot.
The next thing he heard was the fusillade of
shots, about fifteen being fired. In the
opinion of the witness. After the firing
ceased Fhrry gsve three bells, the signal
to back up. Pstterson barked the car to
the other arm of the Y and received -the
two-beir signsl fmm Flury-to-go ahead.
He started up and then looked Into the
car. Flury csme In from the rear door

"Did they 'gVf' VcAir 'money?" Patterson
asked. ' , . , .

not' PattefsofV had-'Tetttlxed he was seri
ously wounded. ; Ptter6n ran the car to
the hospital and helped Flury In.
County- Engineer Heal Identified' a' large
plat of the scene of the murder. It showed
Flury w-as standing about fifteen feet from
the Sarpy county line when the shooting
took place. Dr. A, P. Condon, who treated
Flury, testified ka to the nature of the
wounds and that death waa due to the
bnllet which passed through the abdomen.
He also Identified the bullet taken out of
Flury's back as a 3S-caliber.
Gathright was the next witness on the
stand. He is a small, black negro with
shifting eyes and an indolent air about
him. While he was testifying lie reclined
in his chair to the right side and rested
his head on his right palm. He bonked his
left arm around the back of the chair and
stretched both legs out comfortably In
front of him. He laughed in a careless
sort of way several times during his tes
timony and did not seem to lake his sit
uation very" seriously. He said he was
nineteen years old.
Hiding; from Outaha Police.
The witness said' he had gone to Calvin
Wain's house the night of the murder for
the purpose of avoiding the Omaha officers
who were looking for him on a . burglary
charge. Wain and Clark came In later
and about 10:) o'clock went out. Gath
right followed and caught up with them.
They begau to talk about a . previous
holdup and when he found they were going
to hold up son)e saloons Gathright said he
objected to going any further with them.
He said, they told him he had gone part
way and would have to stay with them.
They held up two saloons, one on Thirty
second and K streets and another on Thlr
tiulh and V streets. Clark, he Said, had
given him a revolver which would not
work, a 32 calltx r gun.
"When we crossed the Rock Island
J tracks.1- he said, "Clark saw a atreet car
and said, "we II get that car. Then we
crossed the track about a block below the
Y and started toward the car. Wain said
we,would have to hurry or the oar would
get away. They told me to put on the
musk, but I wouldn't do It. "Wain went
up tu the conductor and told him to hold
up his hands. The conductor shot, and
Wulu shot. Clark waa trying to make me
put 011 the mask, tut he ran towards the
car and shot, too. Then he looked around
and took a shot at me and Wain also
shot at me. Then I started to run and
Clark ran after me."
- Clark Fired Last at Klar.
He said he thought between ten and
fVelve- shots were fired, Clark filing the
last one at Fluiy. He saw Clark after
ward, once at Mrs. I". wing's, Wain's mother.
There Clark wild. "Thtitwas a bad shoot
ing scrape we got . Into." Clark, he said,
had thrte guns on him then. Gathright
snld he had not tv-en promised anything
fur testifying and sld he did not expect
to get a life sentence instead of death for
going on the stands
James Roes, a colored man, from whom
('lark borrowed one of the guns he had with
lilm "at the time of the murder, testified
Clark got the gun Wednesday night and
returned It Thursday morning after the
shooting. Thursdsy evening he was at the
house and read a newspaper account of
the orlme and discussed it with them.
Mrs. Nette Jones- totd of Clark's coming
to her at 10 o'clock on the night of the
holdup and telltng her he would give her
some money later to keep for him. At
1:30 In the morning he returned Willi some
money wrapped In a cloth which she took.
She burled It and aterward gave it to the
officers. He also told her about the holdup
and said he . was afraid Wain was shot.
Ha advised her to keep her mouth shut
about the affair, but she told the police,

HIGHWAYMAN HOLDS UP WOMEN
Brave - Knlarht of the Riisd I sea
Revolver to Frighten His
A highway robber, who, even though
armed , with a fierce looking .revolver,
feared to choose other. than helpless women
as his victims, made a number of attacks
in the south part of the city Tuesday night,
but so far as Is known, failed to secure any
money for his trouble. The first attempt
reported to the police Was when three
women. Mesdames Sylvester Proctor, SI 21
South Twenty-third street, snd Carrie end
Grace Younkln. 2602 South Eleventh street,
were held up by the man at Twenty-third
and Vinton streets at 10 o'clock.' ' One of
the women called loudly for help and the
ruftiun inude his eseitiie. ' :" ' .
" BHoflirafter tins' a Ionian, who fulled
to report ' the matter to the pelloe- and
whose-name is not known, Tvas attacked
at Ninth and Bancroft streets. The man
grabbed her pocketbook, according to wit
nesses, and though he did not draw a re
volver, threatened to shoot. She resisted
his efforts, when he struck at her, then ran
away. The victim disappeared from the
vicinity and It Is- not known whether she
lost any valuables.
At about 11:30 Mrs. Anna Callier. 1202
Castellar street, and her young daughter,
were aocosted at Thirteenth and Castellar
streets by a man supposed to be the same
person who attackqed the other women.
Thinking it some friend who wished lo
speak to her, Mrs. Callier stopped, when
she was told to throw up her hands, the
barrel of a revolver being displayed to
carry weight. Mrs. Callier quickly threa
her pocketbook to the street and said she
had no money. The daughter set up such

In "Edmund Burke'' Mr. Olcott Intro
duces us to some names that are known to
history, a cftuple of flno gentlemen, several
dirty blackguards and several persons who
only count In the census. The women are
all fine, and the gossoons (heaven blepi
r.-.) are the finest of the -lot. In the
course of the play we are treated to com
edy of the frankest sort or. to melodrama
pure aud simple. Edmund Burke la a fine
Irish gentleman, more than a little down
on his luck, .but fired by un ambition to
enter Parliament. He succeeds In saving
the girl af his heart . from the polluting
touch, of the-prince of Wales, and then
saves the prince of Wales from Hie sac
rilegious clutches of a gang of ruffianly
kidnapers, and wins all at a single stroke.
Oliver Goldsmith is Introduced as a com
panion to Burke in his misfortune, down
cast and discouraged, but Burke cheers him
up by making copious prophecies of suc
cess that have -been amply realised by
time; although Oliver's one lugubrious
comment to- the effect that he wouldn't live
fo see It .has also. been equally, fulfilled.
. Mr. Olcott jtiakeg Edmund Burke a dash
ing and attractive .ypung. man. not unrea
sonably romantic, .nor -Immodestly heroic;
In fact, he Is quite a sensible fellow, after
all, and .doesn't do much that another
would not So It, placed In the same situa
tion. He also carries oft, hla victory as .It
it "were, the vault of gopd fortuqa;rather
than of " good ; planning. JUs pevetmaUty
and well-kiio ft met hods -make this gllutitf
more effective.' ln:.the course of the play
Mr. Olcott sings a" number of new. .songs,
as only lie can, and generously repeats at
least one verse of each in response to- the
Mr. Jarrett's Oliver Goldsmith Is . a' de
light. The genial and unfortunate author
of the -"Vicar of Wakefield" aeems to have
shouldered at once all the misfortunes that
overtook that worthy gentleman and yet
In bis deepest depth of despair he cannot
escape the laugh that lurks In his kindly
humor. Samuel Johnson is referred to at
different times during the dialogue, but
doesn't appear on the stage. It is a pity
he doesn't, for a scene between Burke
Goldsmith and Johnson would be greatly
enjoyed. As It is. the scene between Burke
and Goldsmith Is the most charming of
the play ffom the point of pure comedy.
Miss Phillips as Mary Nugent Is a genu
ine tr.-Kt.. She Is the true-hearted, plucky
Irish girt, with, a laugh on her lips and a
twinkle In her eye. and the roguery fairly
exuding from her presence in the tighter
moments of the play, and most sincere In
her fright aud worry, n the one sellout
scene she has. The others In the company
are well iiuallflcd for. their parts und the
play proceeds from Its tranquil, opening to
Its happy ending, with steady smoothness.
Tlie audience at the Boyd theater last night
frequently expressed Its approval of th
events of .the piny sS they occurred and
apparently enjoyed It hugely. "Edmund
Burke" wll 1m repeated at a matinee this
afternoon and again this evening, closing

THEFT OF DOGS A FASHION

Perpetrated wllh Regu
Thieves are making a systematic cam
paign in Omaha by sf allng valuable dogs.
The frequency with which cltltens are re
porting to the police the loas of their
canines leads the police to believe a gans
of specialists In this form of lsroeny l
now working in Omaha, The result-Is tlie
detectives are bending every effort to run
town the culprits. Inasmuoh as sortie of
the animals stolen are valued highly tha
offense will constitute grand larceny
should any of the eulprlts be apprehended.
Four of the most important reports re
ceived by the police during the last twenty
four hours were: Mrs. BV H. Jannsei-t

"I have often observed that the.
man who is careful of hie clothing
la careful of his business, careful
of his reputation, careful 1n every
thing. Clothes indicate character.
A man who can afford to dress
and doesn't is weak somewhere'
and falls to show a proper respect,, '
for himself, his family and hlq.
There's an individuality about,
clothing that is made tor you and'
you alone (hat adds an itupres--sive
dignity to your appearance,'
that you can never hope to achieve
as long as you wear ready-made .
There's a something of swagger-,
ness and an indefinable .superiority
.of cut and finish about MacCar-
thy-Wllson attire that Immedi
ately stamps the wearer, with, the.
mark oT a man of good clothing -judgment.
clothing has that prosperous look..
