Joseph Crow has been more or less Idnntl

years. He was at one time a member of the
Nebraska legislature from Douglas county
and is by profession an attorney at law.
He preceded Captain H. E. Palmer "as
postmaster of Omaha and has of late been
Identified with the construction of the
Sioux City Homer Interurban Klectrlc
The story appearing In a morning paper
that Mr. Crow had left the city Thursday
afternoon upon receiving an Intimation that
an Indictment had been returned against
him aa groundless. The federal authorities
knew of Mr. Crow's presence In the city
and that there could be no possible motive
for his leaving the city as a result of the
charge against him.
A peculiar Incident Is Just now recalled
that during the time the grand Jury was In
session, of which Mr. Crow was foreman
In 1905, he protested to the court that It
was unwise. In his opinion, that the grand
Jury Indictments should be made public.
He was Informed, . however, by the court
that after Indictments had been reported
by the grand Jury the public bad a right
to know of them, except where It might
be that the indicted parties were not yet
under arrest or bond.

from official life after six years as tax
commissioner of Omaha. He haa been en

ments and will turn over his books, papers
and all documents to the city clerk aa the

With Sunday night the office of city tax
commissioner ceases to exist, the assess
ment work going to the county assessor,
who In the future will base both city and
county assessments upon one set of books,
thereby consolidating the labor.
The plats and records of city property
and Its valuation compiled by Mr. Firming
are of considerable Importance and likely
will be placed in charge of the county as
sessor. Mr. Fleming is going Into the real estate
business. Since the first of the year his
duties have been mostly concerning the
city's interests in the scavenger tax law

year was made by the county authorities.
There has been talk of assigning the old
tax offices on the second floor of the city
hall to the Water board, but this program
will hardly be carried out, as the rooms
are needed for the consolidated county and
city treasury department, which is to be
located at the city hail. The number of
people doing business in the treasurers
office makes its location on the first floor
Imperative. More spare Is needed and the
only solution Is to use the old tax offices
directly above, connecting tliem with the
first floor by a spiral stairway.

OBJECT TO PREVENT STEALING DOGS
Operations of Company Will at First
Be Confined to Nebraska aad
Then Spread to Other
The Dog Fanciers' Protective association,
the purpose of which Is to insure owners
against the loss of their hunters and pets
by theft and to put a stop to the systematic
operations of gangs of dog stealers, is
being organised at Omaha by E. P, Buffett
and J. B. Coningham.
There are associations all over the coun
try for protection against horse thieves,
but the promoters of this enterprise know
of no organisation which looks after the
dogs. They believe theirs is the original
idea along this line. They have sent out
letters to about fifty dog owners of Omaha
asking for an expression of opinion on tho
subject and suggesting a meeting at an
early date. Already a sufficient number of
men have been interviewed to make it look
probable that the plan will be successful.
The plan embraces the registration of the
dogs with the secretary of the association,
the books showing number, breed and name
of dog, weight, age, color and special Iden
tification marks. A system of physical
measurements, such as length from tip of
nose to base of tall, height from floor to
top of shoulder and length of head, is pro
Will Find Lost Dogs.
Whenever a dog Is lost or stolen the
owner will notify the secretary, who will
at once give the description to every mem
ber of the association, and within a certain
radius to sheriffs, city marshals, constables,
express companies, baggagemen, bridge
watchmen and depot gate keepers, offering
a suitable reward for the recovery of the
dog or Information leading to the arrest
and conviction of the persons stealing the
dog. As a special tax Is levied against
dogs they become personal property, the
same as a horse or cow. In case of theft, If
the value Is above IS, the offense carries
with It a penitentiary sentence upon con
"We believe such an association would
stop systematic dog stealing," said J. B.
urungnani. ad umana Danker told me
that nowadays banks protected by the
American Bankers' association are seldom
robbed, and I think that after one or two
convictions the thieves would be wary
about taking animals which have the tag of
our association on them, for our aim would
be to Imprison an offender whenever pot
ible. They are stealing dogs in Omaha
and selling them in Minneapolis and Sioux
City and Denver; they are stealing dogs In
the latter cities and selling them In Omaha.
"The scope of the association will be con
fined to Nebraska at first, but our expecta
tion is to branch out and take In Iowa,
Dakota and Minnesota, and perhaps finally
become a national organization. In Ne
braska alone are at least 2,000 men who
own dogs valuable enough that they ought
to have this sort of protection."

NEW OIL COMPANY PROJECT
Former Employe of Standard Pro
poses to Launch Enterprise to
Compete with Hockfeller.
If the plans of O. C. Turner of this city
materialise Omaha will no longer be com
pelled to pay tribute to John D. Rock
efeller. Mr. Turner has announced his Intention
of going into business In competition with
Standard Oil, with Omaha as a distribut
ing point, and his opened correspondence
with the Commercial club to learn what
measure of support the club and the busi
ness men of the city will lend him. He
proposes to operate a wholesale business,
getting his oil from fields which are inde
pendent of the trust. Though he has some
backing, he feels the need of still greater
financial assistance to make the project
go, and its establishment will depend
largely on the attitude of the club.
For the last twelve years Mr. Turner has
been in the employ of the Standard Oil
company, most of that time as a sales
man on the road. He ha traveled in Ne
braska and Missouri.
"The Standard OH has crushed many
other competitors, why cannot It crush
you?" was asked of Mr. Turner.
His reply was one of . confidence.
"I have been with them so long I know
their methods," he aaid,. "I know where

HARRIMAN CAUGHT BY LAW

That the law is no respecter of persons

Thursday evening when a common police

the urbane Mr. Harriman, who chanced to

his automobile, and told him he would
have to "come along" for running Ms ma

Mr. Harriman is a quiet, courteous gen

and this shock came near destroying the
equilibrium of his sweet temperament.
He thought to resist the officer and then, as
if pondering on the hateful consequences
of such an act, he turned, smiled and said
he would be in court at the proper time.

as needed legislation can be secured, it
will be extended to include the general
business of a trust company. The men

BEFORE THE PEOPLE'S BAR
Peoria Oitissn Eioki Over the Dashboard
and Blames Omaha Whisky.
SAYS REAL BRAND WOULD NOT ACT SO
Mother's Wandering; Boy Is Exiled to
Council BlniTs and Stnaaed
Almost Speechless by
John Franklin Coulter of Peoria tried to
spring a new one on Police Judge Craw
ford . when arraigned before the people's
bar Friday morning on the charge of
drunkenness and refusing to pay for a
Coulter was arrested at the Yager
restaurant on Farnam street, where the
man from Peoria ate viands and drank
liquids to the commercial value of 75
cents, and then refused to conform to a
local custom which Impels people to pay
a stipulated sum usually Indicated on a
check to be presented to the cashier. As
Caterer Yager and Patrolman Shields ap
peared against Coulter the prisoner was
fined 15 'and costs.
When asked to give an accounting of his
stewardship In Omaha Thursday Coulter
set up the plea that when he drinks In
toxicating liquors he becomes a different
man and doea things he would not think
of doing in his sober moments.
. "Judge, when I am sober, I am one of
the best men in the world- I know that
the laws of supply and demand are such
that a man who serves meals must receive
money to keep his books balanced and
support his family. It was not my Indi
vidual self that refused to pay for the
meal, but the Omaha whisky Inside of me,
which rebelled when my better self wanted
to pay Mr. Yager. If I had drank Peoria
whisky the results would have been dif
ferent; I would have put down a gold
piece and told the cashier to keep the
change," remarked Coulter.
"But the court cannot take official
cognizance of the varying effect of dif
ferent whiskies. It is my duty to weigh
the evidence presented to the court," re
plied the Judae.
'Of course, it's up to you, your honor,"
rejoined the defendant.
When Coulter waa told he tried to turn
the Yager restaurant Inside out and then
tried to suspend business at the city Jail
be stood aghast and said he would hit the
high places for Peoria as soon as be paid
his fine and the roads dried up.
George W. O'Brien, charged with va
grancy, caused a ripple of laughter in po-
lice court Friday morning.
"You will have to leave town or get
employment," said the police Judge to
"I will leave town If you will discharge
me. Judge," responded the prisoner.
"Well. I'll let you go this time. Get to
the next town as soon as you can."
"Wbat is the next town?" queried
"Council Bluffs. Go one block south,
turn east and cross the bridge and keep
agoing with might and main," was the
answer given O'Brien.
The thought of being exiled to Counoll
Bluffs stunned O'Brien. He placed his
arm across his forehead, reeled toward
the wall and exclaimed in faint tones,
'Tills is too much; I did not deserve such
a fate. But when my poor old mother
kissed mewtood-bye at the gate, she said,
'My boy, always remember the advice of
your mother and don't spend all your
money in one place." So, Judge, I will
go, I will go. Though the thought almost
kills me (pronounced ma). I will go to
Council Bluffs. Tell the folks their boy
was not a coward. Did you say one block
south and then turn to the east? Good
bye, Judge, take care of yourself."
Then with saddened face and a bandanna
handkerchief around his neck O'Brien
walked one block south and turned east
to meet his fate In Council Bluffs.
Five more complaints against automobile
men were filed with the police Judge Friday
morning. The names of the alleged trans
gressors were: II. E. Fredrickson, C. T.
Holnw-s. G. U Smith, Joseph Hstfield and
D. C. Bradford. The autoists were charged

Smith's rase waa set over for Saturday
The story told of Mr. Smith was that be
accosted a woman at Sixteenth street and
Capitol avenue Thursday evening about
twenty minutes before the curfew whistle
blew. He placed his arms around the
woman with whom he was not on speaking

and caught Bmlth. The woman ran away
after expressing her scorn by saying, "How

After drinking a pint of whisky with a
friend on Farnam street Thursday evening
Michael Stachan began turning cart wheels
and throwing empty flasks on the pave
ment. Stachan was arrested for throwing
glass on the street. The police Judge fined
the Chlcagoan fl and costs. Stachan said
the next time he feels strong he will go
