T1IE OMAHA SUNDAY- BEE: OCTOBK
THE MAN WHO WAS PUNCHED BY
V A COAT.
Iiy A. Ta .Utr-Vvtt'er.
IT was a Cold Day for Thompson! '
He'd been In Tight Places before,
but this was the Limit,
Urn was Bound Neck, Arms and
Legs, by his clothes.
Old Dr. Goose had fixed him. 1
When he first put on that stilt In the
Clothing Store he was very much
Tickled with It.
But now, Instead of being "Tickled"
he found himself "pinched" by It.
You see the coat hed been sweated
Into shape by the Flat-iron, Instead
of -being patiently worked Into shape
with the Needle and Thread.
This sweating by Old Dr. Goose, had
shrunk up the cloth in places where It
was too loose and flabby.
It had also strentched out the cloth
where It was too tight and plnchy.
The fiat-Iron can do all this. In a
hurry, you know. It can throw a new
shape into the Coat "while you wait"
But that shape won't "stap put."
The first damp day Wilts out all the
And the first very dry warm day, or
a very warm dry room, shrinks up the
flat-iron stretching again.
Then, you're in a sort of straight
Haven't you felt that tugglng-down
on the back of your neck, sometimes?
Haven't you noticed how the Coat
"binds" under the arms, and across
the shoulders after a week or two of
Haven't you seen the left lapel of
your Coat collar bunch up, and swell
out, from your vest collar?
And, perhaps you've noticed, too,
how the shoulders get sloping, and
drop down at the points when they
ought to stand up and look stylish?
Well all that gradual degeneration
Is the result of Klat-lron faking.
Because, a Coat that's properly
made and fully-shaped, by sincere
hand-needle-work can't lose Its shape
' from Wear or from Weather.
Such needle-work binds It forever
Into a given form.
And If that form fits you, and
pleases you, when you first put the
Coat on, you may rely upon that same
form remaining Jn the garment till it
ts worn out,
Not so with clothes shaped by the
Because these have been merely
shaped by heat and moisture, by "the
Tailor's Goose." Instead of by sincere
And, for this reason, the Heat and
Moisture of weather will unahape thtmi
' in the same way they were shaped.
Now 80 per cent of all Coats of
Overcoats are shaped and finished by
the faky Flat-Iron.
But you can't tell that tllT you wear
them a week or so.
There's only one sure way of avoid
ing the flat-iron-faked Garment..
That's to make sure, before you
buy, that the Coat or Overcoat bears
the label of the "Sincerity" Clothes
And, that label reads

The. coroner neld nn Inquest ovrr the
body of "Steve" or KAhnstlan Scldllk yester
day morning at a. m. After examining
the evidence In the case the Jury brought
j In a rdict of murder, declaring that the
i deceased rams to his death a the direct
result of a blow delivered at the hands of
James Perry while the two were together
In the employ of the Ctidahy Packing com
pany. The Implement of death was a meat
hook, rnich an la used for hanging carcasses
on. The date' of the sssault was Septem
The enrly efforts to locate Perry were
fruitless aa he had gone from South Omaha
on the day of the awtault. The belief of
the police was that Perry had gone to
Kansaa City, and such was reported by
hla friends. The police relaxed their ef
forts later, because little of the seriousness
of the man's condition reached their ears.
It la reported to this department from
Kansas City that the authorities there
have located Perry and have a direct line
to his apprehension. Acting on this report
Detective 'P. H. Shields left Thursday night
Tor Kansas City. Me knows Perry and will
visit the packing houses and make the
arrest If If prtve correct that Perry Is
working there. .
The funer 1 arrangements have not been
made, awaiting the arrival of a brother
from Chicago. It has been learned that

Rig Building Perm Ha.
Several largw building permits were taken
out yesterday by the Omaha Packing com
pany. The total valuutlun of the bui,dliis
under construction la about f),u00. 'ii.ee
buildings are already well under way. The
otlice, located at Hie north end of the 1114 n
building, U fixed at 118,000. A stoiagc
building la contemplated which will cost
.y,000, and a pumping house and its equip
ment of tanks will cunt 115.000. The pump
ing house Is located Just north of the ne
tack and conslsta of about three stcrl' of
frame building. Work on the plant has
been going on uninterruptedly, and the de
partment's essentials for, caring for the
beef products are almost at the point of
completion. One of these was the casing
department, which had not been anclis-d
at the time when killing began at the
PirtnU Tha men were obliged to work In
the open air and many of them caught
cold. Thin has been remedied now. The
hog killing and sheep slaughtering floors
have not been advanced far enough to pre

ravin-. Tax Enjoined.
The ever convenient Injunction has again
landed on the city treasurer. He Is now
enjoined from attempting to collect special
taxes to pay for the paving of Thirtieth
street. This pavement has been laid for
two years, but only a few dollars has ever
own cuuecieu to inniuum mc cnjr iui u.(
Issue of bonds. It Is understood that the
greater portion of the property along this
street from Q to Y is owned by the Jetler
Brewing company. Thursday seven or
eight property owners began an action be
fore the district court to prevent the col
lection of the special taxes. The grounds of
the action la that the petition for paving
was not legal and that many of the names
were' secured by fraud, either being at
tached by other than the property ownera
or without their knowledge of Its force. It
Is also asserted that some of the signers
claimed to have property along the atreet,
but in reality owned none. If the Injunc
tion holds It will put the cost of the paving
on the city at large.
It is likely that similar Injunction will
issue In the "case of the Twenty-fourth
street paving and that on South Twenty
fourth and Railroad avenue. The order of
the court la only temporary and the case

Case In Supreme Cont.
Ia C. Lamb, rt, representing the city of
South Omaha in three cases which have
been appealed to tho supreme court, stated
yesterday Hint he was ready for tne trials
which ar to come next week, beginning
Tuesday. The first case is that of Nichol
son agalnat the city In which Judgment was
rendered against the city for $M0. It is
g case of personal Injury. The second and
moat Important case of the three is the
case of the Commonwealth Realty com
pany against the city In which the court
decreed that the proprrty of this company
was outside of the corporate limits of Soutn
Omaha. The contention Is that the court
had not the right to make such a decree.
The case Involves a sum of money, but this
ts thought - to be the secondary consider
ation. The third case is that In which
Begear won Judgment against Westcott, one
of the licensed garbage haulers of the city.
Hence the city Is hoi don for the amount of
the damage. Westcott hauled garbage
over the east extension of Missouri avenue
for a year and was then sued by the plain
tiff for damage arlalng from this source. It
being cpntended that the extension was Il
legal and therefore not a public thorough
fare. The Local Liquor Dealers' Protective as
sociation held a meeting Thursday after
noon and appointed a committee to wait
on Governor Mickey to present the case of
the South Omaha saloon men. They wish
to Influence the governor to compel the
drug stores, which hold permits to sell
liquors, to clore up the same as the sa
loons. Also to. see to It that the Inmatea
of proscribed districts shall not be allowed
to sell to parties who may visit them. A
move Is also on foot for a sta'te conven

CHRIST DIVINE OR IMPOSTER
Father Sherman nisconraes on the
Uildenrra of the Divinity
"Christ Is either the 011 of God or He
Is a moral monstrosity," declared Father
Thomas E. Sherman In his lecture last
night at Crelghton college. Beforw a crowd
that completely filled the auditorium he
discussed the evidences of the divinity of
Christ. The lecture Is one of the series
that will continue nightly until Monday
"A host of people have been Insidiously
trying to take away the divine character of
i Christ," he said. "They say He wai a
hero, an ethical leader, a wise man but
not of God. Taking the historic Christ na
we have Him. I say He Is cither the God
He claims to be or He Is a moral absur
dity, a blasphemer."
Christ, he said, represented Himself to
His disciples aa the son of God and His
own works designated Him such. He saved
Himself from death as a blasphemer and
finally died for making the claim. If He
had been making false claims all His life,
said the speaker. He w-ould have told the
truth when It became a matter of life and
death with Him. The truth of His claims
Is also proved, said Father Sherman In
His wisdom. He was an unschooled car
penter, dropped Into a world of high cul
ture, yet He did not make mistakes and
did not hHve to take back what He said.
"The miracles alone." continued the
speaker, "would not proclaim Him the son
of God. Moses turned the river Nile Into
a river of blood. Ellas raised the dead.
But you must study the way In which the I
miracles were wrought. Tne miraculous
power flowed out from Him. Christ was
the source of miraculous power, as Js
shown by the miracles."
He also held the fact all the prophesies
of the Old Testament prophets Were ful
filled In Christ to be undisputable proof
of His divinity. Then, In addition, Christ
Himself was a prophet and His prophesies
At the close of the lecture Father Sher
man answered a number of questions re
garding the Catholic faith. . In reply to
one of these he said:
"The Catholics do not believe old relics
In themselves have any power. The bones
of the saints have no power, but they
show the saints our regard for them and
they grant us special favors."
He also defended the celibacy of the
clergy on the grounds an 'unmarried man
could devote hla entire life to the church
while a married man ought to devote the
best part of hla life to his wife snd chil
dren. Making? 3ew Appointments la West

Money and the Ranks.
SOUTH OMAHA. Oct. 12. (To the
Editor of The Bee.) Tour editorial,
"Money Held Out of Banks,' In The Bee
of. the 10th, strikes the keynote. I wrote
an article on the same subject for the
South Omaha Democrat, but they failed
to publish It, as I believe they were
afraid of stepping on someone's toes. At
least twenty-five foreigners recently
called on me and asked me to make them
belts In which to carry their money, but
In all cases I told the parties that If they
were afraid to deposit their money and
Insisted upon carrying It on their persons,
I hoped they would he knocked down and
robbed, aa they would be doing society
and themselves a great wrong by divert
ing money from tho regular channels of
I am a foreigner, but like to live like
a white man. There ars some foreigners
who only Intend to remain here long
enough to accumulate a little wealth and
then return to their native countries,
where they were unable to make a living.
The American depositories might be Im
proved by postal savings banka. but regu
lar bank depositories are better than car
rying money around on one'a person.

PATHETIC STORY IS A FAKE
Police and Coroner Both Misled
Story Told Over the
Touched by the tale of sorrow snd ex
treme affliction of poverty and death sent
in by a woman who gave her name as
Mrs. Watklns, 138 Pincknev street. Desk
H'.-rgeant Havey at the police station de
tailed a man to Investigate an alleged caso
of destitution In a family named Beebc,
living on Grand avenue between Eleventh
and Twelfth streets, Friday evening.
Havey's informant told him over the
telephone a child died In the family thre
days ago from want and sickness, and that
of the poverty the family had
I the house uncared for. It was further
related mortification had set In and
case was one of unusual urgency.
Emergency Officer McCarthy hurried to j
the home of the Boebes, but round the
t.ile of destitution wholly untrue. A child
ud st- t o'clock Friday afternoon, but
already It lay In a pur white coffin ready
tor burial. McCarthy learned Coroner
Bratley had also been misled by' the story
of sn swtul condition of affairs, and Im
mediately hurried to the place with a
child's coffin, but wus turned back by the
family, which asserted Its entire capability
of caring for Its own snd resented any
offers of charity.
LAST MONTH'S POLICE RECORD
Aetaal Reaalta Disclosed by Chief
Danaha ta Satisfy Crlttea
Sinister newspaper attack made upon
th nolle department relative to the stand
ard of efficiency Induced Chief of Police
Donahue to refer to his record for the tart
month Saturday mornlrg. Th chief pre
sented th record of arrests and cmvlc
tlons secured during the month from Sep
tember M. 19ft. to October 10 11. whlih.
he said, was s fslr TlKrlon of th actual
work of th police de-mrtment each month.
Chief Donahue ss'd:
It seoms to be the opinion of our crrrlcs
thst the polh- sr sitting around idle, but
I will present a few figure that have be-n
taken from the actual reevirda of the de
partment, which will apeak for themselves.
sgd the public Is then free to draw Its own
conclusions aa to Lis Inefficiency of the
An Unrivaled Display
force. Prom September 10, 1908. to Octo
ber 10, 19M. inclusive, the police arrested
1.0H9 persons, which la not such a bad rec
ord. I think. Of tho persons arrested, ISO
were convicted In court and sentenced or
lined snd 539 were given a limited number
of hours to get out of the city: sixteen
were fugitives from Justice and were de
livered to officers of other Jurisdictions
and twenty-five were bound over to await
the action of the district court for offenses
such aa burglary, rotbery or grand lar
ceny. Of the twenty-five who were bound
over to the district court, three pleaded
guilty last week and were sentenced to five
years In the penitentiary, while we believe
we have sufficient evidence sgalnst the
others to warrant convictions.
"In addition to this work the police re
covered over 12,000 worth of stolen prop
erty. I think with the force we have this
record Is a pretty creditable showing."
POPULAR PRICES WILL GO
Plan So Successful l.aat
Adopted AkbIii by Horse
Popular prices will prevail at the Horse
show, which opens Its doors Monday, Octo
ber 22. This scheme -was tried last yar
and proved such a succrss the directors of
the Horn Show association will try the
plan again this year. Thla means that
inowt of the seats In the balcony will be
aold for T5 cents, with the three top rows
50 cents. Thla will give thousands of cheap
1 seats from which about as good view of
the ring may be had as from the Mgher
priced seats downstairs.
A large force of men haa been engaged
at the Auditorium sll week, with the result
the ring will be ready for practice driving
and riding Monday evening. The decora
tions also are being put In place earlier
this year than last snd the entire bul'd'ng
will be made s bower of beauty. Some of
the decorations have been extended, to tha
roof and the effect will he most beau'iful.
The entries for the potato race have been
so numerous the management of the Horse
Show has been compelled to divide th con
testants Into two classes, only ten riders
being permitted to participate each even
ing. This is a distinct feature of the
Omaha Horse Show snd Is one of the de
cided hlti of the week. Other western
shows have taken up the potato race and
it is a great card wherever It Is put on.
