that about thirty witnesses- have been ft

With regard to the proposed ordinance
toenfranchb' the Interarban & Southern
railway so that the cars cf this company
may use the' South Omaha streets now
occupied anf traversed by the tracks of
the Omaha Council Bluffs 8trcet.ru 11

there, waa no unnoticed
defect ..or unwarranted,, concession.. The
duration i of the ooncesMon Is to be the
same as the time thatt he franchise now
held by the street railway company holds.
The ordinance will b , examined to make
positive on this point and If not satisfac
tory the Judiciary oonimtltee' will recom
mend an amendment.- The cars will be
able to f.ome Into the city next week if, the
council sees tit to suspend the rules on
the ordinance and give "the two final read

Thomas Jefferson, colored, is not the only
man who experienced trouble at the hands
of Sadie Luckout; 3ilS Q street, yesterday
afternoon. Michael Linahan also got a
touch of "high life" , at the same- place,
Thomas 'Jefferson has htc trunk at the
la add ' boarded with Mrs. Luckout.
About three weeks ago he left for the at
tractions of another tvoman and spent his
time properly (riving her attentions. Yes
terday be went back after his trunk, but
Ills original landlady refused to give it
up until he paid up three weeks' board and
lodging. Jefferson agreed to pay for the
room, but auid. "Ah suttlnly does 'Ject to d
bo'd.", On attempting to go Into the room
where the, trunk was, Sadie gathered in the
handle of the poker and lar.r'ed a knookout
on the , op of Thorn Jtlteraon's head,
after which ha rolled down a flight of
stairs to the street. He went to the city
attorney and secured a writ of replevin.
Michael Unalurt went with him to serve
tha'wiHt, but waa persuaded by the same
poker to retire to the street. - He also wore
a. suggestive knot on" his "top-knot." He
had more dtermmatlcn than Br'er Jeffer
son. He tried the door again, but Sadie
. Luckout bad locked him -out. By hard
pushing he broke, it in to find Sadie backed
up wtiu' de do,' " Ue put one foot in the
crack he had opened to keep the door
from being cKmed, and arot Thomas Jeffer
son for a, . patrolman, , . The blue coat had
mora ffect.on Mrs. Luckout than had the
persuasion of Jeffron or th striking
appearance of Linahan, and the difficulty
wa Settled without an arrest.

BENEFIT. FOR STUDIO CLUB
Ooelal Organisation ' of Writers.
Artist aad Aetora la ta Have
Seats will be placed on sale this morning
for the big benefit program to be given
at Boyd's theater Friday afternoon, the
proceeds of which are to be devoted toward
furnishing the new quarters for tho Studio
club. This organization Is composed pri
marily of newspaper men, writers, actors,
musicians and artists, and also Includes
In Its membership a number of repre
sentatives of other professions, who hsve
shown the proper isjuallflcatlons for enter
ing the "golden circle."
Ths old rooms In the building at the
northwestemoorner of Fifteenth and Far
Dam street proved entirely inadequate for
an organisation of any else and ambitions,
and quarters were secured In the Barker
block. The question of furnishings loomed
up suddenly and ominously when the
change of a. home' was made, and "the
boys" began feeling around In their pookets
for the wherewithal, which proved to be
no forthcoming from that source.
Learning of the quandary In which the
Studio club found Itaelf. Managers Bur
gfs of the Boyd and Burwood. "Doc"
Breed of Ihe Krug, Carl Belter of the Or
pheum and others, promised to help out
as far a possible. Accordingly, a date
was selected when big attractions would be
at all the houses, next Friday afternoon
receiving th choice. With "Coming Thro'
the Rye" at Boyd's, a good bill at the Or
pheum, "Abyssinia" by Wllllame Walker
at the Krug and "Mr. Smooth" at the Bur
wood, an array of numbers was arranged
to draw a S. R. O. house.
Besides portions of the plays at the
houses named, Mr. Relter ha volunteered
to present a monologue by himself and
Mr. Robert Cuscaden promised a violin
nolo, to bo accompanied by Mr. 81gmund
Landsberg on the piano. Both are leading
musicians and their number should be a
big card. To add to these attractions, the
musicians of the city came forward and
donated - the servloea of sixty pieces for
the orchestra, and the" Stage hands said
they would o stunt for the benefit of
the audience, too. and set one of.the'ucts
with the curtain up in full view of the
audience. , t ' .
The advance sale thus far for the benefit
has been good.
LEONARD SUCCEEDS H0RT0N
Assistant Saperlateadeat at Denver
Becomes Saperlateadeat at
Speculation has bean rife for several days
as to who would be chosen to fill the va
cancy of superintendent for the Western
Union In this city caused by the death ct
Mr. C. B- Horton last week. General Su
perintendent T. P. Cook of Chicago, ' ac
companied by a number of other officials
of the company, came In Monday to at
tend the funeral of Mr.' Horton and before
leaving the city last' evening Mr. Cook
announced that he bad appointed .Axlaunt
Superintendent B. E. Leonard of Denver,
Colo., to fill the vacancy, '
While Mr. Leonard la comparatively a
very young man. being only 81 years of
age, he Is said to have shown wonderful
ability in handling the company affairs
on the Mexican border, where he was lo
cated for several years before Mr. Horton
called him to Denver to assist him in
handling the western portion of his large
territory. While Mr.' Leonard's rise Is one
of the most rapid ever known in . tele
graphic circles his superiors, who have
watched his successful business career,
aay he Is only getting what he deserves
by hard work. Mr. Leonard' wife, who
Is a very distinguished MUthern woman
will add much to Omaha's society circles
and probably will join him here in the
course of a .week or two.

toward each other; only a partnership for
purposes of revenue exists between them.
Lady Jim thinks that If Lord Jim's gen

by some trick or other they might dlvldo
the money and go their resp-ictlve ways
rejoicing. This la but tho beginning of
a complicated plot, which interested read
