Deputy County Attorney Foster had the
Crowe matter In hand Thursday morning
and when he left the police court, said
the question of filing a charge of breaking
and entering against Crowe was still being
considered. Tha police have been trying
to locate the colored man said to have
been with Crowe Tuesday evening at the
Warner place and who was said to have
stopped Bert Klements with . a revolver,
while Crowe went , through the Warner
house (n search of the Meadows woman.
After Mrs. Meadow had presented her
self at the police station Thursday for
protection the following note was received
for ber by the Warners on Mason street
Dear Hasel: I wish you a long and
happy life. I am still your friend. If you
want a 15 or S10 bill Just ask your old pal.

The note was delivered by a colored
man, who also brought an empty suit
case which belonged to the woman. The
note and suit case were sent from the
Warner place to Mrs. Meadows at the po
lice station.
Hasel Meadow's Position.
Thursday morning Mrs. Meadows gave the
following signed statement to a reporter
for The Bee:
As for Pat Crowe trying to make the
public "Think" that he is "it" personified, he
is laboring under sn hallucination. If he
were Pat Crowe 10,000 times and he or his
accomplices were standing ready to cut my
throat as I leave this station I would
say that he la a coward.
i Won his lover Ha: Ha! I admit I was
caught In his meshes, and I ssy I am nut
seeking public sympathy. I am a woman
and alone in thla world and I do not pro
pose that Pat Crowe nor any other Crowe
will put me "down and out," to use Crowe's
favorite expression. He may have friends
to help him out. and I do not suppose the
world would cease Its revolutions if I were
put "out of the way." I think that he has
been confined behind the bars so long tha
he Is not accountable for some things he
does, but when he turns down the only
friend that stood by him when he was In
trouble 1 think It la time the public was
made aware of the fact that there Is one
who Is not afraid to expres her opinion
He can make light of my attentions now,
but the time waa wnen ne sent me messai
after message craving them. I say agal
I am not seeking public sympathy, but
only that protection that is due even the
lowest dog on eartn.
Kaew What She Waa Aboat.
During a conversation on the subject the
woman said: "I went Into the whole thing
with my eyes open. 1 honestly thought
to make a better man of Pat Crowe and
my every aim and effort was directed
along that line. I suffered much for him.
If the public, press aad pulpit had done
one-third as much for him as I have done
he would have turned from the errors of
his way end all this last trouble would
never have happened. I knew Mr. Crowe
In Omaha many years ago; In fact, as far
back as the time when he operated the
first motor car over the Sixteenth street
Mrs. Meadows did not care to ssy any
thing regarding her future associations
with Mr. Crows.

(Vrom a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, May . (Special.) Inasmuch
as the State Board or Assessment begins
Its annual meeting next Monday, at which
the railroad property of the state Is to be
assessed, considerable Interest Is now being
taken In the value of this class of prop
That the amount of money being earned
by the corporations will have considerable
to do with the value of the roads as found
by the board there Is little doubt. Should
this earning capacity of the roads be a
factor In determining their value, there Is
tittle doubt some of the systems will come
In for an Increased assessment this year
over all previous years.
An Interesting compilation Just at this
time has been made from figures taken
from "Munday's Earning Capacity of Rail
roads," and unless It can be offset by the
railroad agents who will come before the
board it will be of material aid to the
member of the board and will be used by

Effect of Capitalisms; Famines.
Should the board adopt the theory of
finding the value of railroad property by
capitalizing the net earnings or the net
income the big systems would be materially
Increased In value, while some Of the
smaller systems would get a slight reduc
tion. The board, of course, will not take
the figures a shown In the above table as
Its sole guide, but these figures will be
seriously considered, as It ha been held
one of the safest way by which the value
of a railroad property can be determined
Is by capitalizing Its Income.
Last year, after the board used both of
the above methods, as well as others. In
considering the proposition of assessing
the railroads. It found the systems worth

these figures had to be divided" by five, a

amount of money, it being held that the
board had no authority to pay Jt to him.
