THREE DEMOCRATIC MAYORS
Ch!f Executives of Omahu and Linooln to
Head Bryan Delegation.
PROPOSITION NOW UNDER DISCUSSION
DahlmaB, Ilctor mm Brows Arc
Waat to Head Kobra.ka'a
Procsslost to Kw
Th proposition of a Nsbraska delesatton,
beaded by tbs three democratle mayors of
th stata'a biggest towns. Omaha, Lincoln
snjouth Oiuatta, to swell the throng at
ths Bryan welcome In New York is being
discussed by local party leaders who want
to get In Una with ths Bryan moTeiuent.
Mayor Dahlman, who spent Saturday morn
ing attending to his live stock Interests
lit South Omaha, Is understood to favor
ths plan, and It Is believed that Mayor
Hoctor's acquiescence will not be hard to
secure.. Mayor Brown of Unooln was In
Omaha Friday and said he waa going down
to New York to get la on the first glad
hand to Bryan, no matter who else went
For the first tiros In many years the
three biggest cities In ths state have dem
ocratic mayors simultaneously, a fact so
Strang as to arouse much comment. It
Is proposed to cast a dragnet to draw In
all ths other democratic mayors of leaser
towns and villages and to Uy to Indue
them to make th trip, too.
R. K Metcalf, Charles W. Bryan,
brother of W. J. Bryan, and other Un-
colnlles and a few rad-bot Omaha Bryan'
Ites are looked ufaJh as assured parU of
th nsmble. There Is even mention of a
special train. City Clerk Butler and
others hav said they would help make up
the party, If It reached these proportions.
The entire scheme, however. Is still vague
and waiting for the band of th organizer.
STORY OF A. MAN AND A MULE
Thrllllas; Karratlvo of How Mike
Crowe) Saved House and Sap-
pressed Maad Not,
Patrolman Mike Crow expects to get his
picture in th comic Sunday supplements.
Mr. Crow haul a narrow escape from
death Baturday morning, when he was
chased four blocks by a sway-backed mule
owned by Mike O'Hern, who has a second
hand store at Sixteenth and Cuming streets.
Only two weeks ago the same animal
caused Us owner's arrest and fine In police
While peaceably patrolling his beat on
Sixteenth street Crowe heard th sounds
of "Police!" issuing from the alley at th
rear of th O'Hern store. Rushing Into
the alley, Crowe's attention was directed
to a cottage occupied by Mrs. Barah Miller,
a colored woman, who was watching the
destruction of her humble home.
Crowe soon learned that O Hern's mule
had entered ths Miller house during the
absenos of the colored woman and was
eating a cabbage when th policeman ar
rived. The mule resented the patrolinaa's
interference by kicking an alarm clock
through th doorway. Then Crowe went
around to get O'Hern to call bis pet home.
Meanwhll Mrs. Miller ran down to her
sister's house for succor and a large mop.
Mrs. Miller, her sister. Crow and O'Hern
returned to th Miller place about the sain
time. The Miller house was beginning to
rock Uks a boat on an angry sea.
"Save my Uttl home," cried Mrs. Miller.
"Yea, save my sister's borne," screamed
Mrs. Miller's sister.
Patrolman Crow consented to save th
Crow went to th door of th Miliar
place and tapped with his club, when he
was saluted with a window sash which the
mule kicked out. Miss Mule then ran out
of the door and started after Crowe, who
did run some distance in front of th In
Chief of Police Donahue, who lives near
by, heard of the trouble and took steps
to have a quietus placed on the O'Hern
And her nam was Maud.
MORE TROUBLE IS PROMISED
Revelations Threatened Whea ab
stracts of City Real Estate
Are Dig I p.
The abstract of city property asked for
by the board of appraisers of city property
In order to carry out the Injunction of ap
praising all lands and buildings owned by
the municipality at least one a year. Is
partly made and the submission of the
part of It to Councilman Jackson, who Is
the member of the council on th board,
has caused consternation. By reason cf
many vacated streets and alleys It Is said
the city owns enough real estate to keep
the appraisers busy eight hours a day for
six months. The ordinances provide that
members of the council shall receive no
extra compensation for such services, but
that the lay members are to receive 3 a
day for not mora than three days.
Viewed from any standpoint, there seems
to be a large quantity of labor ahead with
out adequate compensation. Former city
councils and appraising committees hav
simply Ignored the annual Inventory.
Records of the city real estata hav been
Incomplete and as a result much of it has
been occupied by business firms and prl
vat Individuals without paying rent, It
was the desire of th new regime to drag
th matter out of th obscurity In which
It rested. Th prospects revealed ar said
to b sou what surprising.
PLACE FOR BIG REVIVAL
Auditorium Comet Huh and Committee
lay Kot Meet the Price.
OLD COLISEUM NEXT THING IN SIGHT
Local Ministers Preparing; for Torrey
Alezander Meetings Next Fall
Have Serloas Problem
on Their Hands.
Where to hold the big revival is the ques
tion which is disturbing the minds of the
members of the committee on arrangements
for th Torrey-Alextinder metUngs next
When Mr. Torrey and Mr. Alexander
psomlsed to com here, th local ministers
had no idea that they would not get the
Auditorium. Now they are not so sure
about that. They have not yet decided
that they ar able to raise the 13,600 which
th board of managers -of ths Auditorium
wants for the rent of the building.
Th only other building In the city large
enough to bold th masses of people who
will attend-the meetings Is the Coliseum.
It Is not nearly so desirsbl as the Audi
torium, because so far away from th
center of town.
There has been some criticism . of the
Auditorium management for asking so
much money from political and religious
meetings. In this case th members of the
committee say ths management has been
very liberal and has mad th best offer
It could. At a meeting of the committee
with the board of managers th latter ex
plained there was a bonded debt of $60,000
on the Auditorium and a floating debt of
118.000, and that the expenses connected
with a meeting were, a day. Th month
for which th commute wanted the build
ing. November 18 to December 16, was
calculated to bring $5,000 gross receipts. If
the placo wer devoted to amusements. In
view of the nature of the proposed meet
ings, the board would sacrifice $1,400 and
would rent the building for the month
for $3,600, allowing as part payment on
this whatever money Is taken in on tn
four Saturdays when the building will not
be used, to the amount of $600. At the
same meeting F. A. Nash pledged $200 In
the name of the Omaha Electrlo Light and
Power company, and T. C. Byrne $100 for
Byrne & Hammer. This would leave be
tween $2,600 and $3,000 that the committee
would have to raise.
The committee will meet at luncheon
Monday at the Commercial club and ex
pects to decide whether or not to accept
the offer of the Auditorium board of man
agers. CHILD DIES FROM INJURY
Daughter of C. J. Lyon ' Baecambs
as Resalt of Fall from
Miss Helen M. Lyon. 11-year-old daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Lyon, 2 Mason
street, died at o'clock Friday evening
from the effects of a fall sustained last
Saturday. The girl fell from a tree and
broke a wrist In such a manner that the
bones penetrsted through the skin. It
wss thought she was recovering until Fri
day evening, when she took a change for
the worse and died suddenly. The attend
ing doctor explained that an air bubble
got Into the bone and went to the child's
"brain, which was an unusual circumstance.
Miss Lyon was a bright girl and had
many friends among her schoolmates and
associates. She attended the Park school
and the Sunday school of the First Baptist
church. She had two sisters, Edith and
liasel. Rev. J. W. Conley, P. C, pastor
the funeral services at 2:30 p. m. Sunday
at the family residence.
REFORMS INJCEEPING BOOKS
New Methods of Aadltlng Official Ac
eoants Recommended by Comp
Comptroller Lobeck and Deputy Comp
troller Cosgrove have submitted a list of
recommendations to the mayor and council
for reforms in city auditing methods. Most
of the suggestions relate to the police
court, upon which considerable study lias
been spent. The chief reform advocated
apart from this Is a hard and fast rule to
prevent any officer or department from ac
cepting money for licenses, permits or fees
of all kinds, but to Insist that the cash
be handled through the treasurer's office
exclusively, except that taken In the po
lice court. To do this amendments In ordi
nances will be necessary. For the market
master, inspector of weights and meas
ures and other officers who have to Issue
certificates while away from the city hall,
a system of coupon books or "stickers"
Is suggested, these to be purchased by
the officers from the treasurer and properly
accounted fur. It Is suggested, too, that
various forms of licenses and permits be
simplified to avoid confusion.
The checking of the police court record
Is still In progress, but no developments
yt Interest are announced.

district court In the sum of $200.

OVER FIVE TONS OF COFFEE
Immense Order Is Placed with Omaha
House by Federal Gov
The McCord-Brady company received
from the United 8 La tea government a few
days ago one of the largest order for
coffee ever placed with a western grocery
house. It was for 10,360 pounds, or moro
than five tons, of coffee, and the order
requited that it be furnished ground and
delivered within twenty-four hours. Th
facilities which the company has for grind
ing permitted the filling of the order
within the time limit. The government
coffee contracts often exceed the figures
In this case, but so far as known this was
the largest order for ground coffee ever
placed west of the Mississippi.
