NEW TORK, April 29 An end to the
contest for control of Tamnfany hall be
tween Mayor McClellan and Ch.irlcs F.
Murphy was announced today, following a
conference between Timothy D. Sullivan
nd Corporation Counsel William B. Elll-
aon. the latter of whom represented the
Mr. Ellison, after the conference, gave
out a statement In which he said the
mavor will be left free to appoint the I
highest class of men he can And for city
office, but that he (Ellison) will advise
against the appointment of men Inimical
to the democratic organisation or Its lead
er. Mr. Sullivan, he said, agreed that
only efficient men should be retained In or
appointed to elty offices. The mayor will
recognlzo the right of Its lendeis to con
trol the democratic, organization and will
ask that the organization give him its sup
port In his efforts to solve the great mu
nicipal problems which confront him, Mr,
Ellison said. In that way it was hoped,
he added, to eradicate the line between
the organization and the administration.
Mayor McClellan tonight discussed hi
dealings with Tammany as' follows:
"I have made no deal and I have
authorized the making of no deal which
alters my position In any way. It Is, and
hall be, my ambition to e-lve to the city
the best administration that It Is possible
for me to give It and factlnnnl politic
will not be permitted to Interfere.
"I take back nothing that I have said
concerning the mamgement of the demo
cratic organisation. If the element that
constitute Tammnny Hall wish to har
monize on that plane, then I am for har
mony. For a political pence which Is o
oeedrul to my party In the city, the state
and the nation, I shall go as far forward
as any man. but not one step backward."

where every development Is eagerly scrvl
tln'red. The robbery, at flrat put down as a $TiO,ono
affair, has steadily grown until today It
appears that securities aggregating $800,000
In value had been taken by William O.
Ponglass. the bond clerk now under ar
rest. These flmirts ire reached as the
result of an Interview given by a member
of the executive oommlttee of the trust
company, who said that It took $1(8,000 to
redeem the securities hypothecated with
brokers for loan by O. M. Dennett, who Is
under arrest In connection with the rob
bery, and that the securities were pledged
for less than one-third of their value. He
also said that It was $300,000, and not $20,000
worth of securities that were hidden In
Broker Dennett's bed at the Manhattan
Taken at the executive committeeman's
owi figuring, that Douglas and Dennett
realised only a part less than a third on

outstanding securities represents a value
of nearly $500,000. Adding the 1300.000 found

City Rapidly Recovering.
"San Francisco la rapidly recovering from
the disaster of a year ago. The earth

fire. The city Is rebuilding rapidly, but
we are much handicapped for want of
material. We cannot get It aa fast as we
need It. What we most need Is structural
Iron, lime and such building material, and
that we have to get from the east. San
Francisco has not lost any of Its commer
cial supremacy by the disaster, only de
layed a little. But then the San Francisco
people are builders. The city has suf
fered many great fires and comes out bet

they will get one.

MAYOR OUT FOR DENNIS0N
Dnhlman and Nine Others Testify He
Haa Good Reputation la
Ten reputation witnesses put on the
stand by Tom Dennlson were nil that
testified In the libel suit against the News
yesterday afternoon. Th last of the ten
left the stand a few minutes before 5
o'clock and court then adjourned, leaving
but one more witness to testify In re
buttal for Dennlson. This witness Is Joe
Khefry, former deputy sheriff, who will
go on at .I0 this morning, and his testi
mony will occupy about an hour. The
case will then be turned over to the de
fense for rebuttal testimony and the at
torneys for the News promise to finish In
time to allow a atart on the arguments
before adjournment In the evening. If
thla program Is carried out there Is
prospect the case will go to the Jury
Wednesday evening or Thursday morning.
As far as the plaintiff was concerned,
the examination of reputation witnesses
was uniform. In each case amounting to
two or three questions. In each rase the
witnesses said Dennlson's reputation was
good. Attorney Van Dusen devoted the
cross-examination largely to questions as
to whether or not the fact he nad run a
gambling house or had been charged with
crimes affected his general reputation.
Those who testified were A. B. Hunt of
the water company, Mayor James C. Dahl
man, F. A. Nash of the electric light com
pany, Fred Hoy, former councilman;
John Qulnn, editor of a labor paper; A. L.
Thomas, farmer and horseman; J. M. Tan
ner of the South Omaha Dally Democrat,
South Omaha; James B. Kilkenny, at
torney; A. C. Kugel. Journeyman plumber
and secretary Central Labor union; Peter
E. Elsawser. barber and councilman. Mayor
Dahlman qualified his testimony by say
ing Dennlson's reputation was good as far
as he knew.
Attorney Van Dusen, for the defense,
subjected Dennlson to a close cross-examination,
lasting several hours. The lat
ter part of his cross-examination related
to his statements of expense submitted to
Frank Bhercllff. He said one of these
statements was for WJ00. expended partly
in getting Shercllff out of the peniten
tiary. One Item was M,50n, given to O. H.
McMillan, a Cedar Rapids newspaper man,
for assisting In securing the parole of
Shercllff. Dennlson admitted he had used
the name E. W. Blunt while visiting the
penitentiary at Fort MaMlson, but denied
he had ever used the name at any other
time or place.
Frank Williams, an ex-convlct from Cass
county, testified . to seeing Shercllff and
Dennlson, make out the expense account
which was to be submitted to Shercllft's
mother for the purpose of getting money
i from his father's estate. Dennlson testi
fied he had let Shercllff have the sums of
money mentioned In the- expense account
with the understanding 8hrrcllff had 11.500
and interest coming from the estate. Wil
liams' testimony corroborated that of Den
nlson regarding the statement.

COUNCIL ACTS ON THE DOC
frsparsi Ordinance Krqairicc Vayor to
Call for f roteetioa w bss Issued.
MUST FIRST KNOW OF THE NECESSITY
McGovern Want Pound master Mil
lard Personally to pend Thirty
Days CatchlnS; Iogs on
The city council became enthused yester
day afternoon In committee of the whole j
over the dog situation In Omaha. After '
considerable discussion on the subjects of 1
rabies, dog catchers and dogs In general i
the council voted to recommend for pas
sage, upon final reading this evening, nn !
ordinance to regulate dogs. , .
This ordinance provides that when the
mayor shall And and determine upon Inves
tigation that there Is danger of the ex
istence or spread of rabies, or whenever he
shall find and determine upon Investigation
that many vicious dogs are running at
large to the danger of public safety, he'
shall Issue a proclamation ordering and
requiring all persons owning or harboring
dogs either to confine such dogs by tying I
or keeping In leash, or. If the animal be
allowed to run at large, a muzxle may be
placed on the dog.
The Idea of the cotinrll Is that if a dog
Is allowed off Its owner's premises It must
be In, leash or muzxlcd and must be kept !
on the premises In such manner that per
sons having legitimate occasion for enter- i
Ing the premises will not be endangered. !
It Is noted In the ordinance that It shall ,
be the duty of police officers to either
kill or send to the pound all dos found
on the streets In violation of the ordinance.
The period of time which It Is Intended
the mayor's proclamation shall cover Is
placed at four months, In the ordinance,;
but It Is believed this feature of the new
ordinance will occasion some debate this
evening when the ordinance Is brought up
for final reading and passage.
Father Wtlllnms Approves It.
Rev. John Williams of the Nebraska
Humane society addressed the council, and
said the new ordinance appeared to be
quite acceptable so far as he could see. He
said most of the members of his society
believed rabies existed in Omaha and he
was Inclined to that belief, although he
was not positive. Dr. Miller, he remarked,
did not apeak for the Nebraska Humane
society in the contention that rabies did
not exist In Omaha.
Councilman Zlmman favored the Idea that
all dogs taken from premises should be In
leash. Councilman McOovern declnred that
the whole present trouble with the dogs
was due to negligence on the part of the
poundmaster. Mr. McOovern said he be
lieved the council should ndopt a resolu
tion directing Poundmaster Millard to get
out himself for thirty days on his wagon
and round up the stray dogs.
Councilman Funkhouser declared he seri
ously believed the time hsd arrived for
the council to protect the cltlsi'n rather
