fessions were testified to by Police Matron

She said the diamond stuck in her throat
and did not go clear down for a long time."
Officer Drummy testified to the same

The principal interest centered in the
testimony of Mrs. Hayes herself. . She

The description of the hat Mrs. Hayes
had on offered all kinds of difficulties to
the male witnesses. Mr. Kuren said it had
red flowers with blue leaves on It. De
tective Drummy admitted be was not an
expert on millinery, but he had examined
the ' hat carefully to see if the diamond
was hid in It and he waa aure there were
flowers of some kind on it He said he
waa not aure whether they ' were red or
black. The hat waa produced before the
Jury and was found to bo trimmed with
blue flowers. Mrs. Hayes put the hat on

NEW PRIMARY LAW- A PUZZLE
Question of Method of Appointing;
Clerks nnd Jndarea to Bo
Another knotty question arising under
the Dodge primary law has been submitted
to County. Attorney Slabaugh for solution.
The question involves the method of ap
pointing clerks and Judges of the primary
election to be held July 8.
The law originally provided for registra
tion in connection with the primary, and
as the registration is carried on under the
auspices of the city, provision was made in
the law that the city 'clerk' should appoint
primary election. boards in Omaha. The rfu
preme court knocked out the section pro
viding for the holding of registration and
the question now comes up whether the sec.'
tlon providing for the appointment of the
board by the city clerk goes out with It.
Under the general , election statute the
boards would be appointed by the district
clerk. ; ! i
County Attorney Slabaugh will give
written opinion to the county clerk on the
matter some time In the near future.

The home of Count John A. Crelghton
at tho northwest oorner of Twentieth and
Chicago streets was gutted by fire yester
day afternoon. The Interior of the house
with its wealth of furnishings and value
able collection of paintings, relics and me
mentoes, was almost totally destroyed.

at the southwest corner of the house and
was not discovered until the fire had gained
considerable headway. The count and his
brother-in-law, John A. Schenck, are at
Mount Clemens, Mich. Count Crelghton
was advised yesterday evening of the fire.
The loss will be many thousands of dollars,
well covered by insurance, but the value
of the count's collection of personal ef-,
fects and books cannot be estimated In dol
lars, aa many of the articles destroyed had
a personal value which could not be. re
placed with money.
During the absence of the count and other
members of the household the place was In
charge of Mrs. Mary Cotter, who has been
tfie count's housekeeper for twenty years.
At the time of the fire ahe was down town
having a dress tried on and waa not advised
of the fire until an hour after the alarm
was sent In. When she did arrive home
and viewed the wreck ahe was completely
overcome with emotion. She had to be
attended by women companions who were
on the scene.
Two Servants In tho Hons.
When the fire broke out the coachman
downstairs in the laundry room, while
servant was upstairs. Painters were
working at the front of the house and
were first advised of the fire by three boys
passing the front of the place. The alarm
was sent in from the Crelghton telephone
and when the department arrived, about
2:30. the flames were fast destroying the val
uable effects 'a which the count took much
According to statements of the painters
the fire 'Was caused by a gasoline torch
used In scorching old paint. In the count's
den was a large collection of books and
relics, all of which were destroyed. From
the den the fire spread over the first floor,
gutting the library, dining and living rooms.
A few paintings on the north wall escaped
damage. The upstairs was badly damaged
by fire, smoke and water. The fire was
confined to the Interior of the house.
Among the more valuable articles de
stroyed were two life-sized busts, one of
Pope Leo XIII and another of Kdword
Crelghton, the count's brother. In the den
was an autograph photograph of Pope Plus,
with the Latin inscription. "To My Very.
Dear Son, John A. Crelghton. Pope Plus."
That photograph was brought from the
pope by Bishop Scannell on his last visit
to Rome and was highly prized by Count
Relies from AH Over World.
In the den were relics from notable per
sonages all over the world. , pne was a
framed document presented by Pope Leo
at the time Mr. Crelghton was commis

count 'took especial pride In his ) family
paintings, which, fortunately, were prac
tically saved, as neighbors and friends
made a rush for the paintings as soon as
the Are was discovered. A large painting
of the count's wife was saved Intact; his
mother's oil painting; was slightly dam
aged, but can be repaired; a painting of
Edward Crelghton, six feet square, was
not damaged, while nearly all other paint
ings of the Crelghton family were saved.
Owing to the Improvements being made
at the place when the fire broke out. five
valuable paintings had been stored In the
attic and were not damaged.
Nearly every bit of furnishing on the
first floor was ruined, while most of the
furnishings upstair were either wholly
destroyed or rendered useless. The In
terior of the house was badly scorched.
' The Crelghton home is an old landmark of
the city. It was known as the Lacy home
In tho early days and was erected about
forty-five years ago. Count Crelghton has

HEN THIEVES ARE DEFIANT
Marauders Apparently Will Not Heed
Dlro Threats of North Omaha
It is evident from the police records that
chicken thieves are taking no thought of
the present temper of members of the
North Omaha Protective association, as
nearly all reports received of poultry
losses come ftom residents living within
the Jurisdiction of the protective associa
tion. Thursday night thieves took a brood of
thirty chicks from the premises of J. C.
Thompson, sOW North Forty-fourth street.
The chicks were a few days old. When
chicken thieves stole a few old hens now
and then from members of the North
Omaha Protective association the matter
was not serious enough to warrant call
ing a special meeting, but now that cul
prits are robbing the poultry cradles in
dignation has become such as to cause
rumors of a special meeting and dire
things for the first man caught stealing
from any member of the association.
Mrs. C. J. Christiansen of Calhoun drove
into town Thursday afternoon and re
ported to the police the loss of eighty
chicks stolen from her place.
