LINCOLN. April 11. I8peclal.)-Judge
Silas A. Holcomb has formed a partner
ahlp with Lester E. Kirkpatrlck of Seattle.
Wash., for the practice of taw and will
not return to Lincoln to make hla home aa
long at hla health continue to Improve In
the western city. The announcement that
the partnership had been formed was re
ceived In Lincoln this morning and to some
of hla frlenda Judge Holcomb has written
he will try the far weat for a time In the
hope his health will be fully regained.
Lester E. Kirkpatrlck is a brother of
former Supreme Court Commissioner Kirk
patrlck of this city and haa been practi
cing In Seattle for a number of years with
John C. Trice as a partner. The latter
left the firm to become the president of
the Northern Securities and Bankers com
pany. Judge Holeomb's decision to reside in
Seattle will cut some Ice In democratic
politics, aa It is known a number of his
friends had settled upon him as the dem
ocratic gubernatorial nominee.
Insurance) Investigators Busy.
Representatives Potter and Beedle, mem
bers of the Insurance Investigating com
mittee appointed by the Wisconsin legisla
ture, were in Lincoln today looking up
the securities and the property belonging
to the Northwestern Mutual Life Insur
ance company of Wisconsin. They returned
to Milwaukee tonight and tomorrow the
committee will begin to hold meetings.
This committee was appointed to Investi
gate the AVIaconsin insurance companies
and will work along the llnea of the Arm
strong Investigating committee and haa se
cured an able attorney and actuary to
assist. . According to the representatives
here the Investigation will be much more
In detail than the New York Investigation,
as the people of Wisconsin are anxious to
know all the Inside workings of the Insur
ance business. The Northwestern owns
considerable property In Lincoln.
The board of secretaries of the state
veterinary board la holding Its regular ex
amlnations today, with thirty-two young
and old men participating. This examina
tion is held under the law enacted by the
late legislature, which provides that no
one In the state shall practice veterinary
medicine tinder the title of a veterinarian
without first having secured a license from
the state board. Considerable opposition
has been aroused among the old time prac
titioners, who say they will be unable to
pass the examination because of the tech
nical questions asked, though they have
been practicing for twenty years or mora
and know ail about the Inside and tba out
side workings of a horse.
A. P, Barnea of Plattsmouth, who has
been practicing for twenty years, called
upon the governor today and protested
against the enforcement of the law, which
he said was passed merely to drive the old
fellows out of the business and make way
for the younger men who have yet to build
up a practice. Dr. Barnes was advised to
take the examination and did so. It be
ing the belief that the old timers will have
no trouble In passing. .
Dr. Petera of the state university, a mem
ber of the Board of Secretaries, said the
law was passed to catch the fellows from
other states who jump Into Nebraska and
do a lot of business because of sensational
advertising and who have no license to
practice here. The old timers, he said,
can go right ahead and practice, pro
vided they do not call themselvea veteri
narians and many of them are doing that
rather than take the examinations.
Street Hallway Fight On.
The Cltisens Street Ktallway company laid
ita first rails this morning at 7 o'clock at
Nineteenth and N streets, across which
the old traction company will have to build
It It makea its line to the new park. This
Is the beginning of the fight between the
old traction company and an organization
composed strictly of Lincoln business men,
who organised after the traction company
refused to pay its taxes and enjoined their
collection In the courts. Manager Cox,
formerly with the old company, has been
engaged by the home company and said
today cars would be running on the new
line by July.

o'clock on the morning ' f March 8 at the
end of the Albright street car line. Flury
had Just gotten off the car and had thrown
the switch for the car to run back on the
Y preparatory to the return trip. He was
standing In the track when lio was ordered
by Cal Wain, one of ClaiK's accomplices,
to throw up his handd. Instead of doing
so he pulled his gun and Toed at Wain.

The murder aroused great Indignation,
and on the night of Flury's death a mob at
tempted to get hold of the prisoners and
hang them, but they were spirited away
by Sheriff McDonald and kept in hiding
until the feeling died down.
The arrest of the three men Is considered
a very clever piece of work on the part
of the South Omaha police officials. The
first evidence was given the officers by
Mrs. Nettie Jones, to whom Clark gave
his share of the money obtained In the sa
loon holdups. Clark's arrest followed and
afterward Clarence Gathrlght and Cal

Clark's participation In the holdup, but de

energy to preventing a death penalty.
Clark Admissions Go In.
Admissions by Harrison Clark that be
was the leader of the gang that tried to
hold up Conductor Edward Flury were ad
mitted as evidence against Clark Wednes
day morning in the murder trial before
Judge Sutton. The admission was made
to County Attorney Blabaugh about March
21, In the office of the county Jail in the
presence of several witnesses.
Deputy Sheriff Haze told of the statement
made by Clark. County Attorney Blabaugh
had gone to the Jail In response to a letter
from Clark. Before saying anything Clark
wanted a promise of leniency but Judge
Slabaugh said he could make no promise.
Clark then said Gathrlght's statement was
correct until they readied Thirteenth and
It streets, but beyond that point it was
"1 was the leader of the gang. I broke
the telephone wires," Clark said. The
rest of the story told by Clark did not
differ materially from Gathrlght's state
ment until the scene of the shooting was
reached. He said the street car conductor
was not throwing the switch, but was
standing back of the car when the shooting

declined to say at that lime. He also re
fused to say who had the large blue Colt

hut during the shooting. John McMillan,
who was present at the Interview, also
testified as to the statement.
Edward D. Newvllle, who was an eye
witness of the battle from his porch, said
he was aroused some time after 12 o'clork

and saw four men shooting, three of them
