MoDonald at my fathers home In Falr
bnry. We had company that everting and
I played the) organ. McDonald and I took
some of the young people home and on
our return the man chloroformed and
doped me," said the young. 'The next
thing I knew I waa In a hotel In Beatrice
a week afterward, when I came to my
senses. McDonald waa bending over me
nd threatened to kill me if I made any
outcry or tried to get away from him.
Ha had some aort of influence over m
nd I now believe he had me hypnotised.
It all seems Ilka a dream to me now. He
threatened me from time to time as we
traveled from place to place. He had
plenty of money and Old not do a day s
work while we were together. . We came
to Omaha last Sunday and stopped at the
Aetna house. Tuesday evening I Anally
resolved to go to Falrbury."
Mrs. West la nineteen years of age. She
toutljr maintains her story Is true and
that aha did not remember how she waa
taken from Falrbury to Beatrice on the

CRUSADE AGAINST CESSPOOLS
Ordinance Goea to Coanrll Aimed at
Vaalta in tha Sewer
"Some of Omaha's sanitary regulations
are made to fit a city of 5,000 Inhabitants,"
said Health Commissioner Connell
Wednesday In announcing a crusage against
cesspools and vaults within sewer dis
tricts. "I have started an ordinance on
its way through the council which will
enable this department to condemn and
cause the removal of all such nuisances
at its discretion. Now we are bound by
a lot of rules preventing action. There
are thousands of vaults and cesspools in
Omaha In close proximity to accessible
sewers and a constant sou roe of typhoid
nd other diseases. Under the present
ordinances if a typhoid epidemic were to
break out in localities full of vaults we
would have no legal way of checking It.
I think the new. ordinance will correct at
least some of the defects."

Janitor City Jail EGBERT TAYLOR.
The council was In a better frame of mind
Tuesday and confirmed all of the mayor's
batch of appointments except Tom Lee
for city prosecutor, John C. Lynch for gas
inspector and Egbert Taylor for Janitor
at the city Jail. No chances were taken,
however, and the star chamber session be
hind bolted and locked doors, which this
council finds necessary to transact any
Important business, waa held as usual.
After announcing yesterday that he would
submit tha name of Andrew Rosewater for
engineer for the third time, Mayor Dahl
man was requested by Mr. Rosewater not
to present him aa a candidate last night.
Jesse Lowe, therefore, was proposed for
the second time. The council, with the ex
ception of Bedford, confirmed the appoint
ment on the strength of an intimation fsum
Mr. Lowe, who Is in New Orleans, that he
would consider acceptance if selected. Men
In close touch with the situation say the
hopea of Elsaaser and others that Lowe
will take the place are without substance
of realization. He haa thirty days to ac
cept or decline and in the Interim City
Engineer Rosewater holds on. Tha con
firmation of Ixwe waa exactly what Mayor
Dahlman wished and the council fell In
the pit that waa digged without a struggle
Millard for Poaadmaater.
Moat of the confirmations were unani
mous. Zlmman and Bedford voted con
sistently to sustain the mayor. A ripple
of laughter followed the unanimous con
firmation of Alfred Millard for poundmas
ter. It meant that Omaha has for dog
catcher a bank cannier and social and busi
ness leader. Mr. Millard la president of
the Nebraska Humane society, wealthy, and
wants to devote the $2,000 or $3,000 proflta
of the poundmaster' Job to the benefit
and better care of animate. The city al
ready haa one of the best equipped dog
pounds in the country and 1 la possible
under Mr. Millard's regime that heights of
luxury will be realized by the common
canine never known In the dog world be
fore. John G. Pegg, who captured the Job of
Inspector of weights and measures and
the $100 monthly appendage thereto, used
to be messenger In Mayor Moores' office.
He and Mr. Millard were the only repub
licans among those confirmed. The in
spector of weights and measures continues
Its traditional Incumbency by a colored
man. - ,
F.pnteta the Lucky Boy.
There was an' embarrassment of riches
In the naming of Charles Epstein as mar
ketmastor. A week ago he was appointed
and confirmed as a city hall Janitor. The
council approved him for the better place
on the theory that he had not yot accepted
the Janltorshlp. Maynard Wilson, confirmed
as a city hall Janitor, was messenger In
the mayor's office during the last year
and will continue there In connection with
other duties, this being an old arrangement.
Egbert Taylor, turned down for Janitor at
the city hall, had been rejected as a city
hall Janitor the week before.
During the meeting Comptroller Lobeck
occupied his new exalted position on the
right hand of President Johnson and no
words left the lips of the latter until they
had been uttered sotto voce by the sea
soned fiscal counter-balance. How long
Lobeck Is to be president of the counoll Is
a question on the boards at the city hall.
Tho council sustained a veto from the
mayor opposing a freight platform over the
sidewalk on South Thirteenth street in
front of the old Barker hotel building, now
a wholesale warehouse. His honor said he
had received protests from persons Inter
ested and the platform would spoil Thir
teenth street as a thoroughfare.
Councilman Bridges forged even with
Zlmman In the race on radical antl-cornor-
ation legislation by introducing an ordln-.
ance to require the street railway company
to issue thirty school children's tickets "for

Bridges, wss adopted, giving the treasurer
use of three rooms formerly occupied by
the tax commissioner and license Inspector
on the second floor of the city hall. The
same order transferred the license Inspector
to room 406 on the fourth flcwr. The treas
urer protested that this arangement would
bo Inconvenient and scarcely serve the pur
pose. Comptroller Lobeck, democrat, did
not want to give up bis present offices on
the first floor.
Second Assistant Attorney.
The resolution declaring the necessity of
creating the office of second assistant city
attorney at a salary of $2.0X) a year, ap
pointed by the attorney and under the lat
ter' direction, was adopted by nine votes,
one more than necessary, Jackson, Elsaa
ser and McGovern voting against It.
Dan Custer, exterminator of "midnight
assassins and political porch climbers,"
who once hoped to be city hall superin
tendent, waa presented with k $50 Job as
watchman at the city asphalt plant at the
suggestion of City Engineer Rosewater.
Street Commissioner Flynn submitted a
bunch of twenty-four names to help make
up the new street cleaning gang, and the
council confirmed the batch' without going
Into secret session to thresh It over.
Bids for Engine Monse.
The city clerk waa ordered to adver
tise ,f or blde-for the construction of the
fir engine bouse at i Twenty-fourth and
Cuming streets, long delayed, and the
buildings and property committee and the
fire chief were instructed to select a site
for the new Fifth, ward fire station, to cost
not more than $3,500, located north of Wil
lis avenue, west of Sherman avenue and
east' of Twenty-fourth atraet, and report
to the council on June K; -
The downtown Fa mam street asphalt re
paying was given a boost by the adoption
of a resolution from Zlmman ordering the
engineer to prepare special specifications
and an ordinance to create the necessary
Improvement district. i
Councilman Brucker had a resolution
adopted directing tha traction company to
replace granite pavement displaced on
Nicholas street, between Seventeenth and
Eighteenth, within twenty days on the
threat of having the city do the Job and
charging It up. Action came about through
a petition of property owners. .
An ordinance- Introduced and. referred
would give wider latitude to the health
department in exterminating cesspools and
vaulta, and make such action -possible In
all places accessible to sewers on the In
itiative of the health commissioner.
The ordinance forbidding packing houses
or the slaughtering at all places in the
city was passed. ,
