"fire demon." When Orlswold reached the
remnants of bl h ne late Mondty nlcht
with wife snd daughter from a party, he
viewed the grim embers of whst hid been
his happy home. The ashes of the horse
blankets seemed to stare at Mm like a
ghost of other days. Griswold said. The
man did not even have the satisfaction pf
hearing the "wild, weird crlr of 'flret
fire! fire!' " when neighbor woke neighbor
with such exclamations.
Orlswold Immediately began to build on
the ashes of the past He borrowed 'J)
from his boss, bought some furniture at
an Installment house and took a new grip
on the futurey
" 'Taln't no use worryln' 'bout a It'll

to do Is to Jes' start In ag in," was the
sage remark of Orlswold as he left the car

As a protection to the many Christmas
shoppers, as well as to the stores which
have large lines of goods displayed to Ad
vantage for tho operations of snesk thieves
nnd pickpockets, five members of the police
force have been detailed to make the
rounds of stores until closing time, at !0

Goodrich and Rlnn are the men selected for
the tash and will work In full uniform, tn
I addition to the officers, several of the do
j tectlves have been ordered to pay particular
attention to the shopping district, and It Is
: believed the presence of the officers will
: materially decrease the loss which mer
chants always suffer by theft when Urge
crowds nro In the stores.
"The detail of officers Is merely a pre
ventive measure," said Captain Mostvti.
"It has not been requf'sted by the mer
chants, who usually have their own de
tective force at such a time, but the pres
ence of several officers In uniform, as well
a detectives, will have a good effect 011

stores close at night. The officer were
placed on this special duty Thursday and

'FRISCO LIVELIEST ON MAP
City by the Day Ilooralngr la Its Re
covery from the Grent
"San Francisco Is the liveliest city on tho
map at present," said Albert Paulson of
the Jewelry supply house of Henry Paulson
& Co. of Chicago, who la at the Paxtoil.
Mr. PaulHon has Just returned from the
San Francisco branch of his house and
says (5an Francisco is all business.
"We did not have a branch house at
San Francisco until after the fire last
spring, when we opened up In the resi
dence district In the second story of a resi
dence. Most of the wholesale houres ari
transacting business from residences, While
the fire was a great setback, most of the
houset; are now doing more business than
ever and the city Is having a big boom."
"Omaba is not so slow, cither. I like to
get to this city to see the greatly Increased
business, especially in our line. When
people have money to buy the luxuries like
Jewelry It Is a sure sign of prosperity.
Seattle Is In the midst of a big building
boom snd the face of the city Is bring
changed. 6treets are all being graded and
soliio expensive buildings are being left
sixty feet In the air.
"It Is the opinion at San Francisco that
the business will eventually go back to
Market street, where It was before the fire.
While many of the new buildings are of
a temporary nature, still there are numer
ous permanent ones blng constructed. Py
comparison with the enormity of the dis
aster, I think the growth at this time Is
more than marvelous."
LINE FROM BURT TO FARNAM
Cross-Town Car Tracks May Be
Laid on Thirty-Third
While various street car extensions are
being considered, there Is one line which
the company has been called upon several
times to consider, but which for some
reason has not been built. This Is a line
on Thirty-third street from Burt to Far
nam and on to Leavenworth, a Jog east
on Leavenworth to Thirty-second stret
and then south on Thirty-second to Pa
cific, where the Twenty-fourth street lino
would be met. Cars could then be run
around that loop and back throttch the
city. This lino would furnish a cross-town
line, which is so badly needed, and would
give the Leavenworth, Farnam, Harney
nnd Walnut Hill lines good connections.
In connection with the street railway
extensions the people of Council Bluffs
have evolved the Idea that the Union Pa
cific will establish a motor car system be
tween Council Bluffs and South Omaha to
replace the old dummy service which was
established between Council Bluffs and
Omaha about the time the bridge was built.
The fare at thut time was 50 cents.
The people of Council Bluff maintain
the I.'nlon Pacific will become a competitor
of the street railway company for passen
ger business. The McKeen motor Is an ac
knowledged uccss and by establishing a
quick, cheap service between Council Bluffs
and South Omaha It Is thought many people
who work at the packing houses would
live In Council Bluffs and use the dummy
SECOND DEGREE FOR GRAY

Futile In Jfearo Murder
Hugh Gray, colored, who shot and killed
Harvey Williams, also colored, In South
Omaha, November 19, was found guilty of
murder In the second degree by a Jury In
ctlmlnal court Thursday morning. The
shooting was the result of trouble over a
woman named Lllllnn Taylor. The penalty
Is from ten years to a life term In tho
Gray had been living with the Taylor
woman for several weeks and cl Mined her
as his common law wire. A week or two
hefore the shooting Williams Induced her
to leave Gray. Gray bought a gun, went
to Williams' house and shot Williams. In
Ms defense his attorneys appealed to the
unwritten law, asserting the Taylor
womnn was his wife nnd Williams had
broken up his home. The court ruled this
evidence out, holding a common law mar
riage wai not established. Self-defense
was also appenled to, but witnesses for
the state testified Gray had said before
the tragedy he was going to kill Williams
and had fired the first shot while Williams
was seated In a chair.
