The death of Count Crelghton calls to
mind the fact that within lesa than three
years five of the most prominent men In
Omaha, all of whom had lived In Omaha
for more than fifty years and all of whom
had their place of business at Thirteenth
and Paroam streets, have died. The first
to pass away was Ben B. Wood, vice presi
dent of the Merchants National bank, who
died In June, 1904. Frank Murphy, president
of the bank, street railway and gas com
panies, was the second, . and he died In
December, 1904. Then came the death of
James M. Woolworth, Herman Kountse,
and last. Count Crelghten.

A lawyer for clerk of the district court In
Douglas county.
This is the object th Douglas County
Bar association la aiming at and working
for In a quiet way. It Is proposed to have
two lawyers, a republican and a democrat,
nominated at th primaries next fall, so
an attorney will occupy the office no matter
which party Is successful.
"There Is no question about the effici
ency of service that would be rendered by
a lawyer." said a man who Is In a position
to know what la being don In th matter.
"Many cases would stop .In th district
clerk's office before they get Into th court
room If an Intelligent lawyer were there
to head them off. And I meart no criticism
of present or past Incumbents of that of
fice." ,
The office of district Clerk Is, from the
pecunary standpoint, on of the richest
political plums In th state. It carries a
salary of $4,000 and fees add from $1,080 to
12,000 to this annually. The term of office
Is four years, so that the office means from
$30,000 to $35,000 to the fortunate candidate.
Frank A. Broadwell, th present Incum
bent, Is completing his second term and the
office will be open at the election of next
November. With 400 to M0 lawyers In th
county working for a candidate of their
own profession, vigorous fight will b
made for the plum.

Mayor Dahlman, J. W. Thomas and Lea
Bpratlen met yesterday afternoon and
transacted business as Board of Fire and
Police Commissioners. ' For the most psrt
routine matters were considered, the whole
session requiring little more than half an
hour. .
On of th matter taken up was that of
bonds for policemen, twenty of whom filed
bonds taken out In the Metropolitan Mu
tual Bond and Surety company. These
bonds are signed by R. J. Clancy, vice
president, and A. R, Harvey. Mr. "Clancy
Is assistant tax commissioner of the Union
Pacific, while Mr. Harvey Is clerk of the
Board of 'Fire and Police Commissioners.
In connection with the police bonds the
Bankers Surety company . presented In
blanket form a bond In the sum of $93,000
to coyer the police department and to be
ratified by the board, but that bond waa
summarily returned to R. B. Howell, local
agent for the Bankers Surety company.
Th twenty Metropolitan Mutual company's
bonds were all approved.
inese bonds caused something of a
rumpus during the week, the allegation be
ing that Clerk A. R.. Harvey of the police
board and secretary of the Metropolitan
Bonding company, was using considerable
effort to get the -police bonding business.
and that Commissioner W. J. Broatch was
trying to get proxies of all policemen tak
Ing these bonds, that fhe proxies might be
used later to further Broatch's efforts to
get In as a director of the Metropolitan

The Metropolitan bonds were approved
without particular comment, th sens of
the board having "been expressed at a re
cent meeting that the bonding business was
open to any companies.
Th present delicate condition of the
police board was In no way referred to at
yesterday's meeting, unless It was a face

Oiaaha Officials Think Cnt May Be
Caased by Waiver of Cost
. ot Traasfer at
CHICAGO, Feb. T. Th Inter Ocean to
day says that In order to prevent the
transcontinental mall from being trans
ferred to the Rock Island system the Bur
lington railroad has notified the Postofnce
department that It will cut its rate for
this service about T per cent, equal to about
08,O0O per annum, - . ,
Thi Is the first time that a railroad ha
offered to cut the rate fixed by an act of
congress for mall service. The Burling
ton's proposition caused amazement In rail
way circles yesterday. In view of th bills
which have been introduced fh congress to
lessen the pay to railroads for mall service.
The fear was expressed by officials of
other railroads that the Burlington's, ac
tion might lead to a rat war between the
railroads for mall traffic between all com
petitive points, and might also be regarded
by oongress as the best of evldunce that
the price paid by the government for the
transportation of the malls has been too
"Nothing ha been heard at Omaha con
cerning the above statement." said l W.
Wakf.ley. general passenger agent of the
Burlington, "but If It la so, the Burlington
is probably assuming the cost of trans
porting the mails across Chicago, which
th Rock Island claimed it would save to
the government, and was about ,000 a
year. Th Rock Island first took th
Omaha mall away from the Burlington and,

story to mean that the Burlington had
agreed to equalise th through rat by
meeting the Rock Island competition. The
Burlington does not reduce the rate, but
assumes th difference In cost In the extra

as Is done every day In passenger and
