A few days ago the son came to Omaha
and started on a little quiet Investigation
of his own and through the means of a
neatly worded letter he got his father to
go to the Omaha postofflce. The son saw
him, but the wily parent managed to elude
the boy. The boy managed later to locate
his father In the north part of the city.
Thursday night the boy went out to the
house where he suspected dad was in hid
ing and looking through a window saw
the "old gentleman" snugly ensconsed at
the supper table, surrounded by a small
family, of which none was the boy's
brother, sister or mother. Then the boy
quietly knocked at the door and was ad
mitted. The father was -astounded, but
managed to control his surprise sufficiently
to lr.vlte his son to dine with them, which
he did. The formalities of an Introduction
to bis new relatives was omitted and after
a very quiet meal, the father called hJs

Mayor Dahlmaa Friday morning passed
the general appropriation ordlnanoe, with a
statement he would not approve two items
for stationery for the treasury department,
the amount being The point has been
raised that the county should bear all ex

that the city charter Is plain on that propo
sition. The city pays 1 per cent of taxes
collected and $1,000 per year to the county
as its share of the expense.
As the city now owes the county about
$6,700 for collection of taxes, the 11.700 al

FARMERS WANT TO HAUL, "BUT CANNOT
One Grain Man Says Several Thous

Three weeks ago the elevator people
were Impatient because the Nebraska
farmers wouldn't deliver corn. Now the
elevators all over the state are full, and
must stay full, because cars cannot be
obtained to move the grain. At present the
farmers want to haul corn and can't do It.
"There are few elevators on our line
that can hold another bushel," said a rep
resentative of a large line elevator house.
"The farmers got a late start In hauling,
but after they started they brought the
corn fast. Owing to the car shortage, the
movement from Nebraska is later than I
have ever seen it before. It will work a
hardship on some dealers those who have
corn nought In the country, but cannot
deliver It at market points In time to nil
"Several thousand more cars could be
used tn Nebraska at once to haul corn and
merchandise, and still we couldn't get them
too fast. The elevators would be filled up
again as fast as they were emptied. The
farmers have not been backward about
selling their corn lately; we have bought
lots of It and are buying It now, and they
stand ready to deliver it at any time; in
fact, they are anxious to deliver It while
the weather is good, but we have to put
them olt from day to day.

SAM GROSS GETS REWARD
Fireman Who Leads In Burglar
Capture Receives Gold Watch '
Tiie evidence so far brought out In the
trial of Ed Elliott, charged with holding up
and robbing the store of Joe Sonnenberg
on Douglas street December 14 after bind
ing the proprietor and his clerk, had added
nothing new to the story of the sensational
crime. The greater part of the time has
been devoted to the examination and cross
examination of Mr. Sonnenberg. He de
tailed the story of the holdup and testified
as to the value of the property taken and
recovered from Elliott. The defense In the
cross-examination nought to show that
some of the Jewelry Mr. Sonnenberg loaned
money on and bought might have been
stolen property. The witness indignantly
denied this and said he made a very care
ful investigation of persons who pawned
goods at his store.
Detective Henry Heltfeld told of the
arrest of Elliott under a bed In the Cam
bridge hotel and said Elliott had admitted
the crime to him and given him a descrip
tion of his partner, who got away. Elliott
told him he had all the jewelry, as his
partner searched for the money drawer
while he filled up with Jewelry. Fireman
Gross, who led the pursuit for Elliott, will
be one of the witnesses for the state.
Mr. Sonnenberg has made a present of a
fine gold watch and a valuable ring to Mr.
Gross as a reward for his services.
