Gcrvalse Graham, 1301 Michigan Ave., Chicago.
Snrprlaed mt Work by W. H. Crnry
nnd Marched Into the Ami
of a Policeman.
Caught In the very act of attempting
a housebreaking, John Turner, a negro,
was surprised by W. K. Crary, IK2 Spencer
street, and marched Into the hands of the
police at the point of a revolver, Thursday
evening. The negro has been bound over
for burglary awaiting trial In the city Jail.
Crary was returning home shortly after
9 o'clock and went around to the rear of
his house to- enter by tha back door. As
he did so he came upon the negro at work
at a window, and before the fellow could
take alarm or was aware of his presence
Crary had him covered with a revolver.
Turner readily obeyed his captor's order
to go ahead, and Crary marched him to
tha Bishop pharmacy, 2816 Bhermaji ave
nue, whero Patrolman L. A. Smith was
encountered. The officer then took charge
of the prisoner and sent him to Jail. A'hcn
questioned at the station Turner said he
had been In Omaha but four days, having
come here from Lavenworth, Kan. An
Omaha pawn ticket dated December 24
was the only artUie of value found on his
person and two pocketknlves were his only
An examination of the window where
the negro was found at work showed that
he was working with a view to opening it
during the night. A number of holes had
been bored In it. but he evidently' suc
ceeded In throwing away the tool, as li
could not be found. Crary is a real eelate
dealer and lives with his family at the
number stated.
Friday morning Turner confessed to Chief
of Detectives Savage .that he had robbed
a house at Hamburg, la., obtaining a gold
watch and $-0, and tha watch was found In
an Omaha pawn shop Friday morning by
Detective Donuhoe. He also confessed to
having served threa terms In the peniten
tiary at Leavenworth, Kan., aggregating
nine years, for burglary.
A complain was filed In police court Fri
day morning by Mr. Crary, and after a
preliminary examination Turner was beund
over on tha charge of burglary for trial
In the district court under bond of $5oO.
The polico are highly elated over the cap
ture of Turner and were load In their praise
of Mr. Crary for his capture. It was a
peculiar coincidence that Thursday night
was the first night for several months that
Mr. Crary had carried hla revolver.

A Jubilee and revival rolled Into one was
the annual meeting of the Knights of Ak-Bar-Ben
held Thursday evening at the Bur
wood theater. Several hundred of the
faithful subjects of King Samson gathered,
filling the entire lower floor of the buld
lug. President Wattles presided and with
him on the stage were members of the
Board of Governors and others. Mr. Wat
ties sounded the note of revival in his an
nual address.
"A great religious revival was held re
cently In this city," he said, "and the key
note of the revival was, 'Get right with
Ood.' It I might suggest such a motto to
the assembled business men of Omaha, I
would say, 'Square yourselves with your
fellow cltlsens.' Subscriptions received
from the business men for the celebration
In 1907 aggregate to date $S.4O0. This Is
about enough to pay for one of the parades
which we place on the street. But It la
enough to cause the Board of Governors to
decide that the Ak-Sar-Ben must continue.
that we cannot afford to give up this In
stitution which has built up the business
of Omaha and made tt the market place for
the people of the state. Hitherto It has
been necessary for the members of the
Board of Governors to sign notes and be
come personally responsible for the great
expenxe connected with this greatest of
Omaha's institutions. This year the board
will go JuBt so far as the citizens and
business men warrant their going."
After Mr. Wattles' address It was re
ported that a number of business houses
bad doubled their subscriptions and that
all the bunks of the city had taken this
Sobecripffona Poor In.
"Are there other sinners ready to take
such action?" asked Mr. Wattles, and all
over the house men rose In rapid succes
sion, doubling and trebling tha subscrip
tions of themselves or their firms. The
limited time made it necessary to cut this
part of the meeting short, but the secre
tary will receive auch Increased subscrip
tions by mall at any time. The action of
the meeting last night waa an Indication
that the efforts of Mr. Wavtles and the
other members of the Board of Governors
to awaken the people to the needs of the
Ak-Sar-Ben have been most successful and
that the parades for 1907 will bo more mag
nificent than ever before In the history of
King Samson's reign.
Secretary Penfold read his report, show
ing that $11.69 remains In the royal treas
ury after all bills are paid. He also made
a short speech showing the prosperity that
Omaha owes directly to the goodfellow
ship engendered by the meetings of the
knights and to the advertising which the
Institution gives the city.
Three new members wjll be elected to
the Board of Governors at the annual
meeting of that body ear'y in January.
Nominations for these places were made
Thursday night as given above.
The business meeting adjourned at 9
o'clock and the knights wltnesxed the play,
"Madame Sana Gene," by the Burwood
theater cast. .
Captain Webb ia Wsrslug Merchants
Analnat Skillful Counter,
felt Certiorates.
Captain John Webb of the government
secret service department was showing a
new raised $10 silver certificate to the
banks and department stores Thursday and
Friday, to put them on their guard against
the bill, which Is regarded as an extremely
dangerous counterfeit. The bill Is raised
from a 12 silver certificate and is the work
of an expert. It can be readily detected,
however, from the fact that It has The
Indian bead frontispiece Instead of the well
known "buffalo note" front common to all
genuine 10 certificates. On the counter
felt all of the figures and words "two"
have been carefully erased and the figure
10" substituted both on the front and back
of the note.
The filagree work about the "Indian
nead" as appearing on the original 2 note
has been erased by chemicals nnd the
space about the head Is left blank, except
that the bank number adopted In all na
tional bank notes Is printed in red Ink to
take up part of the space to the right of
the head left blank by erasure. The coun
terfeit at first glance looks to be genuine
and very little evidences of alteration are
evident, so carefully has the work of alter
ing the note been done.

went into a ditch and Weber was throwi
out and under the wheels.
Weber was a brother of Mrs. Michael
LJebemann of Beatrice', Neb. The body

Patrolman Richard Collins was sus

ceiving the report of Sergeant Slgwart, who
found Collins at home In bed and asleep
Thursduy night when he should have been
on his beat. It is also charged that the
officer was Intoxicated and he will be tried
Monday evening before the Board of Flro
and Police Commissioners if he does not
resign from the force in the meantime.
Patrolman Collins failed to "turn In" to
the police operator after 6 p. m. Thurs
day, which fact was made known to Cap
tain Dunn. Sergeant Sigwart was sent to
Investigate and said In his report that he
found Collins at home in bed and intoxica
