UNION PACIFIC GETS FORGER

WORD COMES THAT VICTIM CONFESSES
V H. Cewley of banning, Mlehlsaa,
Cansht Whei Trying to Make
Second Loan oa Com
t'nlon Paclflo orflrlals have, received word
from the Plnkerton detective agency that
H. J. Cowley, a broker of Lansing, Mien.,
has been arrested charged with issuing
two forged certificates of Union Pacific
common stock for twenty-five and fifty
aharen each, about two weeka ago. Cowley
bad succeeded In raising a 1,000 loan by
similar work, but was cuuglit when he
tried It again. He is said to have con
fessed that ho committed the forgeries
irlth the hope of realizing money, which
he hoped to increase by speculation and
take up the forged certificates.
The forgery caused considerable Interest
all over tne country. July 1. the Central
National bank of Buttle Creek, Mich., tele
graphed the Union Pacific that a stranger
had applied for a loan, offering for col
lateral fifty shares of Union Paclflo com
mon, purporting to be Issued to Marvin
I. Hannahs. The stock books of the com
pany had no ruch name. The chief of po
lice of Lansing did some Investigating and
found that It was Cowley who had applied
for the loan, saying he had obtained the
certificate from Hannahs, who was a
former schoolmate and now a wealthy man
living In California.
To Finance Mexico Deal.
Cowley said he had Induced Hannahs
to finance a land company In Mexico he
proposed to organize, and Hannahs had
agreed to lend him fc5,000. The broker
showed several letters and telegrams al
leged to have come from Hannahs. The
Inquiry made by the Plnkertons established
the fact that the telegrams had never
pa seed through a telegraph office and that
the stock certificate was on an ordinary
blank form, purchasable almost anywhere,
and the aeal used had been made In Chi
cago. The writing on the certificate was
proved to be Hannahs. Cowley confessed
when confronted with the facts. lie said
he had obtained a $1,5000 loan from Michi
gan bankers on a third forged certificate,
which he was forced to take up by
mortgaging his home, when trouble over
the other certificates developed.
Cowley's system la said to have been a
fairly good one for covering his tracks,
but defects In the actual forgery caused
detection. The certificate apparently bore
the signature of K. H. Harriman, presi
dent of the Union Pacific, as well as that
of Alexander Millar, the secretary, not
withstanding the fact that Mr. Harriman
never signs certificates.
' Cowley seems to have borne a good rep
utation In his home community, but waa
apparently Induced to err by the discovery
of an easy and apparently safe process of
raising money which he might use for a
time and then cover on the transaction.
AND NOW HE IS SORRY OF IT

Black Splotches All Over Face
Produced Severe Itching Year's
TreatTiert by Physicians Did No
Good and became Despondent
Affected Parts Now Clear as Ever
CURE BY THE
About f our years, tn I waa afflicted
with black splotches all over rny face
and a few covering my body, which
produced severe itchiiif irritation, and
which caused we a great deal of annoy
ance and suffering, to such an extent that
I was forced to eall in two of the leading
physicians of my town. After a thor
ough examination of the dreaded com
plaint they announced it to be akin
eczema in its worst form. They treated
me for the aame for the length of one
year, but the treatment did me no good,
" Finally I became despondent and
decided to discontinue their aervjoee.
Shortly afterwards, my husband in read
ing a copy of a weekly New York
paper saw an advertisement of the Cute
. cura Remediea. He purchased the en
tire outfit, and after using the eontenta
of the first bottle of Cutieura Resolvent
in connection with the Cutieura Soap
and Ointment, the breaking out entirely
stopped. I continued the use of the
Cutieura Remedies for six months, and
after that every splotch was entirely
, gone and the affected parts were left as
clear as ever. I have not felt a symp
tom of the ecsema siace, which waa three
"The Cutieura Remediea not only
Cured me of that drewiful disease,
esema, but other complicated troubles
as well: and I have been the means of
others being cured of the same disease
by the Cutieura Remedies, and 1 don't
hesitate in saying that the Resolvent
is the best blood medicine that the world
has ever known." Iixiie E. 81edge,

ICE DEALERS RUBBING IT IN
Monte of the Barons Demand Alrssr
Pay as Well as Denble
"Some of the local Ice dealers are not
satisfied with extorting double pries from
the people of Omaha, but are trying to
enforce the rule of 'pay In advance,' " ob
served Frederick Riley, a resident of North
Omnha. "We had an Investigation' here to
determine whether or not such a thing as
an Ire trust existed In Omaha. The out
come was tha no evidence could be secured
to establish the fact of a trust. I don't
know that that Is of much Interest to those
of us who have to buy Ice. What we are
Interested In Is that some mysterious
power certainly not the law of supply and
demand dominates conditions most un
justly and forces people to pay more for
Ice thsn It Is worth or than the dealers
have any right to charge. And we ought
to get at that power and deal wtth It as
other states and other cities have done.
The example of Toledo Is a good one. Of
course. It seems too bad for men In re
spectable walks of life to have . to go to
Jail, but It's not halt as bad as for those
men to extort money from their neighbors.
"This thing of demanding payment for
one's Ice boot: In advance la all rot. My
money Is worth ss much to me as It Is to
the Ice dealer, and I know of no reason
why I should give him the benefit of It
when I don't owe it to him. He ought to
be content with charging me double what
his commodity Is worth. . The system some
of the . dealers , employ Is to sell you a
coupon bonk and after you have used up a
few coupons send mi Impudent upstart as
a collector to Inform you that your pay
ment is due and must be made. Well,
when I make another such donation to one
of these fellows It will be because I haven't
got as good sense as I have now. I would
advise all Ice buyers to pay for their books
when they used them, and not before.
Don't let the Ice barons rub It Into you, as
they are determined to do."
DAHLMAN SAYS ALL RIGHT
Mayer Satlaneol with 8tmllenterger,
Though Thompson Was His
Mayor Dnhlmsn expresses . ea.ttf action
with the results of the fusion conventions
I was for Thompson for governor," said
he, "but my candidate got out from under
me and left me in the lurch. Bhallenbergcr
was my next choice, and as long as Thomp
son wouldn't take the nomination It Is all
right. I think we have a strong, ticket to
place In the field."
City Clerk Butler, who managed to catch
a severe cold at the convention. Is not so
well pleased. He would have preferred to
have seen the populists Ignored altogether.
I saw the pops leaving their convention
hall In disgust and anger when the demo
crats failed to nominate Berge," said he.
I heard many of them cussing democracy
backwards and forwards, and up and down,
and declaring they would vote the straight
republican ticket. I have no patience with
that sort of thing. We democrats have
swallowed populism for ten years, and now
that those fellows are licked they welch.
told some of them what I thought In
pretty strong language."
Second Assistant City Attorney John A,
Bine thinks the fusion deal was a triumph
of political diplomacy and Is well pleased.
Many local democrats can be found who
aay they are sorry that the words "people's
Independent party" are to appear on their
ballot. They want to be done with popu
lism forever and do not conceal their cha
grin over the failure of the late convention
to make a clean breast of the. Job.
HOSPITAL TO BE EXAMINED
City Infirmary Will Undergo an Of
ficial Investla-atlon Directed
by Mayor DnJilman.
Mayor Dahlman says he will order an In
vestigation Into the charges that the city
Isolation hospital has not been properly
kept and patients not taken care of accord
ing to ordinary hospital rules. Health Com
missioner Connetl Is looking Into the facts.
Dr. Strouae, the hospital keeper, enters a
general denial to the charges, but did not
undertake much of a defense In response
to questlone from reporters. He asserts
that the two ' women patients who com
plained did not want to go to the hospital
and were naturally disposed to criticise..
The health commissioner said Friday
afternoon he thought the charges made
against the hospital would be generally
dlsproven. He stated that women who
have been patients there have called htm
up and assured him the facts are not at
all as represented. The department had
considerable trouble with the husband of
one of the women making the complaints.
He did not wish his , wife taken to the
hospital and declined to submit to dis
infection of his clothing and person' until
threatened with arrest. -
I am preparing a report founded on
an Investigation of the conditions," said
Dr. Connell. ' "It will show the accusations
to be without foundation. Publication of
statements of the character made Injure
Omaha and hamper us In our handling of
contagious diseases, making It more diffi
cult for us to Induce patients to go qultely
to the Isolation hospital. " .
