Two suicides, one bjr shooting and ona by
hanging, and an attempted suicide' by ahoot

morning and created, considerable excite
ment bealdea causing an unusual amount
of work for Coroner Bralley. 1 E. Em.

j about 9:15 Friday morning by shooting- him
self with a revolver In tha right breaat
while alone In his room at 417 North
Twelfth street. He waa taken to the Omaha
General hospital and probably will die.
No reaaon can be asnlgned for the suicide
of I IB. Emerson unless It waa due to
financial troubles. He had lived at the
rooming house of Miss Martin on Leaven

p. m. Thursday, saying he felt sleepy
and wished to get plenty of sleep, aa he

a. m. Friday by the noise of the shot.
Makes Careful Preparations.
The man had made careful preparations
in anticipation of his deed, as he had spread
out a quilt on the bed and placed his keys
and other personal effects on the dresser
where they would be easily found. He had
his vest on and in one of the pockets was
found a note giving his name and stating
that his laundry waa at the Kimball Laun
dry company. No money or other valuables
were found among his belongings.
Coroner Bralley took charge of the body
to hold an Inquest at S p. m. Miss Martin
aid the man had no friends in Omaha that
she knew of, but was acquainted with
gamblers who frequented the city several
years ago. Emerson was about 45 years of
, age and had an exceedingly dissipated ap-

man kneeling on the ground under the
north end of the Eleventh street viaduct.
As the man did not move he made an In
vestigation and disco red the body of a
man about 60 years of age suspended by a
rope around hla neck and tied to a girder
under the floor of the viaduct The man
had evidently been dead several hours, ss
the body was rigid. Mr. Rewey notified
the police, but the body waa cut down be

company, who saw the body while Rewey
waa sending the telephone message to the
Btranales to Death.
The man had evidently strangled, as the
distance from the Iron girder, to which the
binding twine had been tied, to the ground
was only about Ave feet, and the man had
drawn up hla knee in a crouching position.
Ills hat was on his head when he was
found. He was roughly dressed and wore
a cheap overcoat. Nothing waa found In
hla pockets except a pair of spectacles, a
comb and a Blip of paper bearing the ad
dress of Frank Zender, Irvlngton. Zender
was formerly a cook at Irvlngton and hired
employes by giving them notes similar to
that found on the body of the unidentified
man. The man waa a well known charac
ter around the commission house district,
many persons being found who knew him
by sight, but not by name. He was feeblu
and In extremely poor health and eked out
an existence by gleanings of decayed fruit
and vegetables from the different commis
sion houses. Coroner Bralley will hold an
Inquest' over the body at 4 p. m.
Bam Goodman, who attempted to take
his life about 9:15 Friday morning by
ahootlng himnelf In the right breast, had
resigned his position as a laborer at tho
"Union Paclflo yards Thursday night and
complained of feeling sick Friday morning
and said he would not go to work. He
had lived at the house at 417 North Twelfth
street with Moses Rosenblaat and wife for
about four months and occupied the front
room of the cottage, where he committed
the deed. Little hope Is entertained for his
recovery. He had many hemorrhages Fri
day morning and lost considerable blood.
Goodman is 2S years of age and unmar
ried. He has relatives living In his native
country and came to the United States
about two years ago. No possible cause
can be assigned for his attempt to end
his Ufe, as be was very cheerful Friday
morning and had just written a long letter
to his parents. He had no bad habits, as
far as Is known by Rosenblaat and hla
wife, and had few acquaintances.
FORCE OF AN OLD PROVERB
Attorney Stevens of Hastings First
Victim of His Own Philo
Attorney Stevens of Hastings blew Into
the office of the clerk of the district court
the other day and asked to take out the
papers In a certain case. File Clerk Ber
trand warned him to take good care of
them, but the attorney waved his fears
aside with a lofty gesture.
"Trust me to take care of them," he
said, airily and cheerily. ' "No harm shall
befall tby cherished files, my friend, while
they are in my hands. .Order is nature's
first law. Such, too, should It be to man,
for man Is' the creature of nature. Take
care of the little things and the great things
will take care of themselves."
It Is Impossible to inform the reader Just
how long the lawyer might have continued
to give voice to these proverbs and to bask
in the light of virtuous deportment had the
file clerk not been too busy to give the
closest attention. So Mr. Stevens ' de
A few minutes later a man brought some
papers Into the district clerk's office. They
were those taken out by Mr. Stevens, minus
the covers. The attorney followed soon.
He had the covers and was not In the
moat amiable mood.
"Nice trick you played me," he said.
"Gave ma these covers and kept the pa
pers here. My time In Omaha Is limited
or I might appreciate the Joke more."
'The papers 'were Inside the covers when
you . took them out," said Mr. Bertrand.
"You must have dropped them out of the
Then th attorney looked troubled. He
repeated certain mystic words in an un
dertone and railed bitterly against the
foolish and shiftless custom of wrapping
valuable papers In slippery covers for the
undoing of busy lawyers. Finally Mr. Ber.
trand, with his blandest smile and most
deliberate manner, produced the papers
which had been lost. The attorney re
placed them In the cover with profuse
'Remember to take care of the little
things and the great things will take 'care
of vthemselves," the file clerk shouted as
the attorney disappeared from the room.
But the remark of the clerk fell on barren
ground and was trampled under foot as the
attorney continued his swift flight.

SUTTON ON CONNELL CASE
Court Ordsn County Attorney U Eicia
Contempt Proceed I dm.
JUDGE ARRAIGNS LAWYER OF COAL MEN
Declines to Hear Farther Argument,
Raying Attorney Was Aware
f His Contemptnens
Cendnet In Coart.
Three remarks which, according to the
hill of particulars, were made by W. J.
Connell, attorney for the coal combine, dur
ing the recent trial, are the basis of con
tempt proceedings which Judge Sutton Fri
day morning ordered the county attorney
to begin against the attorney.
In reviewing the Incidents of the case
and stating his reasons for believing Mr.
Cnnr.ell In contempt of court, Judg Sutton
made an arraignment of the attorney.
The first remark of Mr. Connell was made
after the court had heard his argument
of the law of the case for a long time.
"The court had listened to Mr. Connell's
argument of the law for nearly a day,"
said Judge Sutton, "and did not care to
hear any more argument, and It was then
that he. In a disrespectful, contemptuous
and Insulting manner, and In a sarcastic
tone of voice, intended, to humiliate and
Intimidate the court, made the statement.
Some of the things said by Mr. Connell
during the trial have been condoned be
cause of his apology to the court, but there
are others which cannot be overlooked so
easily without detriment to the dignity of
County Attorney English will draw up
the complaint against Mr. Connell as soon
as possible, though It is not likely it will
be itady before next week.
Mr. Connell had a voluminous copy of
the bill of particulars of the coal combine
case, which he wanted Judge Sutton to
examine ar.d certify. The court refused to
do this until the motion for a new trial
has been disposed of.
BRITONS SEE SCHOOLS HERE
Teachers from K fnar Edward's Land
Visit America for
Miss K. F. Bremner of the Albion Road
public school, Edinburgh, Scotland, visited
In Omaha Friday as the guest of Superin
tendent Davidson, who is a member of the
American committee of the Mosely commis
sion, which Is assisting In the work of
sending 600 teachers from Great Britain to
the United States for the purpose of mak
ing comparisons In teaching methods and
to glean helpful suggestions to be used In
the British school systems. Miss Bremner
was the first of the visitors to . reach
Omaha. . .
The teachers from King Edward's realm
are coming over in groups of five, the last
to arrive in March, According to Miss
Bremner's report, most of the teachers are
of the Idea that when they reach Chicago
they have reached the end of their Journey
to far as seeing anything of Interest In the
way of public schools, but Miss Bremner
went aa far as the Pacific coast and from
Omaha will proceed to Kansas City, 8L
Louis and other cities.
Miss Bremner, who Is one of eight teach
ers from Edinburgh, has been much im
pressed with what she has observed en
route. ' She is to make a report to her com
mission on return to Scotland.
,."Of the many Impressions received In the
American schools the most striking has
been the spontaneous bond of sympathy
existing between the teachers and pupils
and the fine equipment," Miss Bremner
said. "In my country we have certain well
defined Ideas about the child keeping his
place in the school 'room as elsewhere.
"As for principals of schools, we
have In Edinburgh only men principals,
with women as heads of departments of
schools. In our school, where we have
1,600 pupils,' I have charge of 600 on the
lower floor. But I unhesitatingly say that
men principals have better ' control over
the public schools than women have."
Alfred Mosely of London, who Is head of
the Mosely commission. Is an educational
philanthropist. He does not pay all the
expenses of the teachers sent to this coun
try, but secures for them reduced rates on
the steamers and arranges for their leaves
and secures other privileges which pave
the way for their visit here. Some tlmo
ago he sent an Industrial delegation here
and later sent thirty prominent educators
and school officials to this country, doing
much good along these lines. Mr. Mosely's
plans for 1907 are to have 1,000 American
teachers from all the principal cities visit
Great Britain under the auspices of his
commission. He Is called the Carnegie of
BOYS SUSPECTED OF FIRES
Yonths Believed to Be Guilty- of Starting-
Three Biases In Bame
The fire department was called out three
limes within twelve hours to extinguish
what are believed to have been fires of in
cendiary origin in a barn In the rear of
1624 Dorcas streit. Furniture and clothing
are stored in the barn, which Is owned by
Thomas Reed, colored. The first call was
received at 6:28 Thursday night, when sev
eral chairs were found ablase, but the fire
was put out with little loss A second
alarm was sent In Just one hour later when
a mattress was found burning, and this
fire, also, was extinguished with nominal
loss. Another alarm was received at 1:17
Friday morning, when a quantity of old
clothing in the barn waa found on fire, but
the blase was smothered without difficulty.
It is believed all three fires were started
by boys, as several youth were seen near
the barn Friday morning Just before the
fire was discovered. Chief Salter placed
the matter In the hands of Chief of Police
Donahue, who immediately detailed several
detectives on the case to make an Investi
gation and arrest the firebugs.
