BXOSSOS loses to schaefer
Wlsard Wins Heartbreaking Contest
B4JO to 40R.
CHICAGO. May 8. Oeorsi Slosson, the
champion 18-3 billiard player, was defeated
here tonight in the professional tournument
now In progress lit 'Oruhetrtro hall by Jake
Schaefer by the score of 600 to 49S.
Failure on the part of Slosson to get the
balls out of balk when he had but five
pointa to go cost him the game. At that
time Schaefer had but 4J0 points. Slosson
left, the spheres in easy position and the
Chicago man soon got them and In an in
and out play at one end of the table clicked
off the necessary eighty billiards to win the
It was a hard game for Slosson to lose,
as he played the better billiards of the two
and appeared to he a winner during the
greater part of the contest. Both men
played safety all the time and on this ac
count their average was low, as they were
called upon to execute all sort of difficult
shots from false angles.
As an illustration of the sort of billiards
the men were playing, Schaefer executed
a shot In the seventeenth Inning that
seemed an absolute impossibility. The ob
ject balls were lined up at one end of the
table, while the cue ball was almost against
the far rail In a straight line. Schaefer
played a masse the whole length of the ta
ble, hit the near ball on a curve, curved
to the cushion and caught up with the red
ball a foot and a half from the cushion,
where It had been driven by the Impact of
the first object ball. The highest run for
the game was made by Schaefer, with 103.
Slosson's best score was 88. Slosson was
In the lead the greater part of the game.
At the end of he twelfth inning he was
13n points ahead. Schaefer's brilliant run
of 10 put him In the running again, and
In the sixteenth he took the lead with a
run of 61. Slosson's 62 in the twenty-fourth
put him again in the lead. In the twenty
eighth he had 90 points to go. He made 86
of them by the prettiest kind of billiards,
then failed to get I he balls out of balk,
and Schaefer, with 80 to go, ran out the

OMAHA. May 8. To the Kdltor of The
Pee: On the Mist page of The Bee of
May I was an article entitled. "Omaha
Ground Is Too Cheap." This article wss
an account of a meeting of the Omaha
Itcsl Kstate Dealers association, at which
a higher price on ground values In this
city was advocated. The following day
The Bee, in Its editorial columns, endorsed
the position taken by some of the re.il
estate dealers at the meeting referred to.
Moreover, other articles have recently sp
in, tired iii the local papers indicating u
ptnposo on tho part of the real estate
dealers and owners to "boost" ground
valuation In the city.
Those who seek to force UP gniull 1
values are the teal and only enemies of
the city's growth and prosperity. High
prices for land kills prosperity. It means
less money for buildings and for pro
duitlxe enterprises, anil eonseiitiently es
employment for labor. It means high
tents, stiuiiler profits in business, lower
wages and higher cost of living. Can It
also mean increased prosperity ?
Have we forgotten the lesson ot a
former period of high Innd values an-1
supposed prosperity, followed by years of
business depression, demorslited value
and declining population'.'
Kvery day sites which will soon be re
quired for Important business enterprises
are being bought up by land speculators
with the Intention of holding up such en
terprises for a higher prlte. Those that
may locate here will have less i-Hpltal to
put Into the enterprise, and others will
bo forced to go elsewhere. The news
papers and null estate dealers who have
the city's welfare' at heart will do all
they can to keep down ground values.
Instead of encouraging high priced land,
let them advertise that here is to be found
cheap land for homes, for business an I
manufacturing purposes, with a great ter
ritory of cheap land tributary to the city.
Then if we could keep land values down
we would have real and lasting pros

PR1ZB FIGHT IM OMAHA.
Great Moving; Picture Show ot Neleon
Brltt Contest t the Auditorium.
Omaha haa long ago passed the prize
fight era, but there are thousands of men
and not a few of the gentler sex in thl
city who would like to have Just one peP
at a fistic contest. "Just to see what a
prize fight is like," Well, everybody who
hus such a desire and who can dig up a
spare half dollar or even a quarter will
have an opportunity next week to ee one
of the greatest prize fight of recent year
right on the stage of the Auditorium. That
Is to say, everybody who wishes to attend
will see all the essential elements of a real
prize fight, with the roughness, noise and
commotion left out.
It Is a well-known fact that the Bri it
Nelson fight of September. 1905, at Colma,
Cal., was one of the fiercest contests ever
witnessed In this country, and It Is also
a fact that the motion pictures of this
great fight, secured by Mr. J. W. Coffroth
of New York, at the ringside, are far and
away the best ever produced by a mov
ing picture machine. There are good rea
sons for these picture being exceptionally
fine and clear. In the first place the big
fight took place In the open air and In the
clear, sun-gleaming air of California, at
that; and in the second place the man
who look these pictures was a thorough
expert al the business. These wonderful
pictures show the Britt-Nelson contest Just
as it took place, from start to finish. The
how runs one hour and thirty minutes,
closing with the final knockout and the de
parture of the great crowd from the ring
aide. The engagement of this attraction In
Omaha open on Monday night. May 14.
and it will run the entire week. Reserved
eat will go on aale Saturday morning
ut 9 o'clock at the Auditorium.

A. MILLARD FOR DOG CATCHER
Banker Applies for Position of Ponndmaiter
tinder New Administration.
SOLE IDEA IS MERCY FOR DUMB BRUTES
As President of Nebraska, llamane
society Mr. Millard geeks to
Kxtend Principles of
The dug catcher under the new demo
cratic city administration may be a man
wcrth more than half a million dollars.
Alfred Millard, cashier of t he ' L lilted
States National bank and one of the beat
known men In local tlnuncial and society
circles Is an upplleant. fur the position.
The Job of dog catcher Is known officially
us poutidniaster and Is a fee office, revenue
being derived from penalties paid for th-.
t eiieiuin ion of animals. It Is estimated
to In- win Hi about at.oUO a year to the
incumbent, who usually lilies assistants
to do the mum! work of catching tlu
Mr. Millard Isn't nut for the "gtart" mi
the Job; nor does he especially pine for
the physical exercise involved in the
edifying occupation of lassoing a yelping
canine with a copper wire lariat. He
wants It because he Is a friend of dogs
and all other animals. He Is president
of the Nebraska Humane society, through
the efforts of which one of the best dorf
pounds in the United States was built .i
few years ago in this city. The socloty
ha Just employed a resident superinten
dent to have charge of Us work and Mr.
Millard has appeared before tho council
many times In behalf of dumb brutes and
measures toward their comfort and pro
tection. All In Interest of the Hog.
The idea of tho banker In becoming dog
catcher Is to make sure that proper treat
ment Is accorded the dogs and In ord -r
to devote, his net proceeds to Improving
Ihe dog pound and making 11 a still finer
and more sanitary place for the canines.
If there Is money left it will go to help
out other enterprises of the association.
The real labor of catching dogs and ani
mals, of course, will be entrusted to depu
ties and employes.
Mr. Millard has talked with Mayor Zim
tnnn about the matter and urgnd the' latter
to do what he can for him In the guise of
mi office seeker. Mayor Zlmmnu has al
ways been In sympathy with the alms, of
the Humane society and has assured Mr.
Millard that he will speak as good a word
for him as in his power to Mayor-elect
Zlmm.ln I.Ikes the Plan.
"I . can 'commend Mr. Millard's plan,"
said Mayor Zirntnan. "It means that the
Job will be run for the good of dogs, horses
snd domestic animals and not for the In
dividual profit of anyone. Doubtless com
plaints will he cut down for there will no
longer he the stimulus of a dollar lurking
In the catching of every dog. Of course
the Humane society's officers and agents
will want to make what money they can,
but It is fair to suppose they will not go
to the extremes actuated by personal gain.
I don't pretend to have any Influence with
the new administration, but this Is one
proposition that I propose to take up and
do what I can for.
"Omaha will have the wealthiest and
most distinguished dog-catcher In the
world, I am sure, if Mr. Millard is ap
pointed." The news hasn't got around yet and it is
not known how many worthy democratic
sons will gnash their teeth when they hear
of Mr. Millard's candidacy.
TEST ' OF BROWN'S OPINION
tnlt Will Be Filed to Determine Ihe
Taxability of saloon
In order to test the soundness of At
torney General Brown' opinion that sa
loon licenses are taxable property a lest
suit will be started in this county, ac
cording to a statement made by County
Attorney Slabaugh Tuesday. Heretofore
saloon licenses have not been taxed, but
the attorney general recently gave an opin
ion that the State Board of Equalization
has directed local boards to include them
in its list of taxable property.
County Attorney Slabaugh has received
from Attorney Oeneral Brown a letter
written to John B. Raper, county attorney
of Pawnee county, giving the opinion In
lie holds saloon license to be a form of
property having value, and as such should
be listed as franchises or special privileges.
The value Is not necessarily the amount
of the license fee, but In fixing the value
the assessor should take into consideration
the cost, the time It Is to continue in
force, aa well aa the profits and losses
which might be reasonably anticipated as
a result of the busines to be carried on
under the license.
Omaha haa between HO and 230 saloon
paying a license fee of (1,000 each.
