Secret Box In Schmlta Home.
Abraham Ruef was todey removed from
his prison chamber In the fashionable St.
Francis hotel to the residence formerly
owned and occupied by Mayor Schmlts.
A somewhat sensational Incident In con
nection with this former home of Schmitt's
came to light today through an announce
ment by Burns that while minutely ex
amining the premises for possible loop
holes of escape, he found, by turning back
the carpet In the chamber once occupied
by the mayor as his bedroom, a secret plush
lined chest, fitted securely with a lock.
The roof of the recess was a section of ths
floor and upon prying this up the plush
lined box was disclosed, set in between two
sills of the floor.
"It was about ZH by t feet and nearly one
foot deep," said Bums, "and probably
was used to conceal valuable or papers of
a secret nature. It was empty."

On every lip, In every ear was that sen

But the solemnity and the sonorousness
of the occasion was broken In a Farnam
street car when a rotund form rolled into
ths pack of excited passengers worming and
squirming for a place to set a foot on the
way home. 1
"Autrey has arrived," blatted out a wide-
mouthed fan, reaching his neck half-way
along the car to Impart this precious In
formation to a friend. The rotund man
was standing between them.

from Mexico City to Omaha In ten days,
defied sentinels, crossed dead lines, run
the gauntlet of International collectors and
the gamut of human experience In order
to be here for the first game Saturday.

Pa Enthused Over His Team.
St. Louis Thompson arrived Wednesday
and Immediately Jumped into the harness
to condition himself for the championship
race which Is soon to start at Vinton street
park. While he has. had little work this
spring, he Is In fine form. Thompson
pitched some good ball for the St. Louis
Nationals last year, winning a fair propor
tion of his games, when it Is considered
he had a tall-end team to back him up. '
Buck Franck arrived Tuesday night and
when he had had a confab with Pa, who
told him to take complete charge of the
work of the men, he knew he was to be
full captain of the team and that It was
up to him to get some work out of tha
Going to the park Wednesday morning,
Franck took charge of the players and
put them through their stunts with a vim
which showed the skilled Italian touch of
a born leader. He Is a hard worker him
self and believes In the men working hard.
"Walt till the fans get a good look at
that new Infield," aald Pa to a bunch at
the Smoke House. "There la nothing to it.
They are certainly tha goods. Nsyer has
Omaha had three such speedy men for
short, second and third as Franckf White
and Auatln. Each has a whip that Is a
corker and all are faat on their feet. They
will cover the territory as it has never
been covered before."
Pa Is right, for this new trio has Jumped
light Into the game and whan the fans see
them In action Saturday and Sunday they
ill decide the same way for themselves.
Without making the task too hard for
Austin, the fans will have a chance to
compare his work with that of Perrlng,
and It Is said by some who have watched
we have been
in the same old way,
at the same old place.

the practice that Perrlng will soon be for
gotten. But It Is not necessary to mini
mise the wonderful work of Ferrlng In or
der to do Justice to ths new man. It's
simply this: If Austin beats Perrlng he
beats ons of ths fastest and most promis
ing men In the country. And the fans will
not complain If he only equals Perrlng.
The other flay down In Ht. Louis, BamV'W
Mertea and Ulllv Abstain picked a couple
of teams and played a game of ball. 1 he
line-up shows Hill Schlpke, second bnse
and leading off at the hat for the Ahstelne
and Frank Genins, second base and leading
off for the Mertes. Both rJoliipue ami
Oenlns live In 8t. Ixuls and had not yet
left home for their Summer's work. Bchlpko,
It is supposed, will be with Ies Moines
again and it is not known where Frank
will go, probably back to Hutchinson.
"I seriously doubt the report that George
Hsckenschmldt bus decided to come ovtr tne
waters and meet Frank Ooteh," says Jimmy
Parr, the Kngllsh champion wrestler, who
meets Farmer Burns at the Auditorium
Friday night. "I have not Been U"tch for a
couple of months and cannot, therefore,
speak authoritatively, but It Is my Im
pression the report is unfounded. I do not
believe Hack Is confident enough of him
self to be willing to go against tJotch Just
now. Sometime ago he was quoted as Buy
ing he had not learned enough about the
toe hold to meet Gotch and he could not
have learned a groat deal since.
"Speaking of that toe or foot hold, I
think that Is the greatest of all holds."
"Yes," put In Cy Perkins, "if a fellow
gets the foot and a hammerlock on you,
you might as well quit."
"A perfect foot hold is fatal without the
hammerlock." said Parr.
Parr thinks a good deal of Oscar Wasem
es a candidate for the top-notch wrestling
"He's a mighty clever fellow, I think,"
says Parr. "He Is young, strong, active
and resourceful and is bound to come."
Asked his opinion of Prof. Dwyer, the
White House trainer whom Fred Beel re
cently threw at Denver,' he said:
"He's a good, man; Just about such a
man as Wasem at present. He and Wasem
ought to make a swift match."
Wasem s victory over big Duncan Mc
Millan at Lincoln strengthens faith In the
St. Louis boy.
Parr la putting In good licks for his match
Friday night. He Is working out with
various ones at Morgan's. Thursday even
ing Pete Loch went on the mat with hlra
and stayed seven minutes..'
"He's as swift as a cyclone," said Pete.
Farmer Burns Is expected In today. He
was looked for yesterday. Interest Is at the
white heat point over the contest.

AMES BAS BALL. S4VAO BISY
Team Mar Be Picked Next Week for
AMES, Ial. March 2.i-(Bpeclal.) Base
ball work at the Iowa State college la
progreaalng very finely this favorable
weather, and If tha boya all remain at
the college and train during the oomlng
Ave days vacation as they now intend to
they will be In the best of trim for the
games that are coming In a short time
after the vacation closes. The team has
not yet been picked, but will be selected
the nrst or second day after the Baater
vacation, a fact which tends to Induce all
of the men to stay at the college and
train consistently during this short re
cess. It is said that Coach Williams will
have ths men doing steady work twice a
day and have them all lined up fur their
varloua positions by tho time the vaca
tion ends. In case this plan la followed
there will be little chance for the fel
lows that do not remain and train to get a
position on the team, and ao It Is thought
that all will report for duty dally.
Coach Williams called a meeting the
other night and stated during a talk to
the fellows that the squad that would
begin the games for the college would
probably be picked April 1. The usual
talk of probable candidates Is being put
up, but as yet nothing definite can he
aald. In selecting a pitcher there are
about seven men to choose from and few
would he willing to risk a guess aa to
who will be the lucky men. About fifty
men are out all told and the positions will
all be decided after very sharp rivalry.

court upheld the Great Northern railroad
In Its contention that It had the right to
Issue the 160,000,000 of stock authorised by
the board of directors some months ago
and which was enjoined by Attorney Gen
eral Young, who Claimed that the oora
pany should first come before the state
railroad and warehouse ' commission and
submit to an examination to show the
necessity and the purpose of the Issue.
This contention of the state was upheld
by Judge Hallam la the Ramsay county
district court, who ordered an Injunction
to Issue. The supreme court today reverses
The opinion of the court waa unanimous.
Chief Justice Start delivered the opinion
of the oourt, the syllabus of which Is as
The terms and conditions upon which cor
porations may be created, the powers and
capital stock they may have, the purposes
for which they may Increase the capital
stock and ths conditions and limitations of
these are exclusively matters for lt-glala-Uve
action, which cannot be delegated.
The stats having created railway corpo
rations for publlo purposes, the legislature
has ths right to enact statutes regulating
the lrior.aa. of their capital stock. Such
regulations tend to prevent secrecy of
operation and accounts by such publlo
agencies and the lasu. and sale of fictitious
or watered stock, which Is a felony In this
In the exercise of this right the legisla
ture may enact a statute providing gener
ally for what purposes and upon what
terms, conditions and limitations an In
crease of stock may be made and confer
upon a commission the duty of supervising
any proposed Increase.
It may also delegate to the commission
the duty of finding the facts In each par
ticular case and authorise and require It,
If It finds the existence of facta that bring
the case within ths statute, to allow the
proposed Increase; otherwlee to refuse It.
Any statute, however, which attempts to
authorise the commission, In its Judgment,
to allow an Increase of capital stock for
such purposes and on such terms as It may
deem advisable or In Its discretion to re
fuse it, would be unconstitutional aa an
attempt to delegate legislative power

Hill Expected Reaslt. .
NBW TORK, March 18. "The decision of
the Minnesota court waa no more thaa we
expected." said J. J. Hill, when Informed
that the supreme oourt had upheld the
Great Northern stock issue. "For fifteen
years we have been doing the same thing,
with never any serious opposition from the
authorities of that state."
The four deferred payments en Install
ments on new Oreat Northern stock win
amount to 134,000,000 by April I next. Aa the
payment of so large a sum at this time
might create some disturbance In the
money mark.t, It Is believed that stock
holders who may And It Inconvenient to
pay the full Installments will be treated
