Roy Bnyder, a youth about a yeara of age,
waa charged by the police late Friday a
tha robber who held up the drug atore of
O. H. Meyer, Twenty-fourth and Blnney
rtrcFts, the night of April 27; fired three
hota at Conductor Jrfeob A. Baly on an
Albright car Wednesday night, barely mlss
Ing a woman passenger, and atole nearly
100 pounds of candy at the RIvervlew park
refectory. Thursday night, and la now
locked up on a charge of shooting with In
tent to kill. The boy' arrest Is, according
to the police, an early interruption of a
young- life, whfch was faM starting out
In a career of crime with reckless
Tha capture of Snyder, whose home la at
?8"f South Twentieth street, and his con
nection with the shooting affair In the
street car In which a man and a young
woman barely' escaped death or Injury and
with the holdlng-up of Meyers' drug store,
was the result of the work of Detectives
Heltfeld and Devereese and Conductor Saly.
Baly had been requested to be at the police
station at I o'clock Friday afternoon to
look at some men held on suspicion, but
baring nothing else to do he went at 8:S0,
abating himself In the waiting room until
the time should come. He had , not been
; thera long before the two detectives walked
Into the station with a prisoner, whom he
Immediately recognized b the man who
fired at him and nearly hit the woman
passenger. The detectives had arrested him
In connection with the candy theft t the
park, and when Meyers was sent for he
Was positive In his declaration that the
prisoner was the man who held him up In
the drug store and secured 13).
Trouble wltn Conductor.
Baly Is a conductor on an Albright car
and about i o'clock Wednesday night he
liad troubis with a passenger at Thirteenth
and Canton streets, the fellow persisting
In standing In the passageway between the
railing and the door. Saly pushed him In
Ide In order to clear the way for alight
ing passengers and a long quarrel was
carried on. Just before he got off the -car
tha man drew a revolver and. with the
words 'This Is where I get even with you,"
fired three shots at Saly. The lntter dodged
and one of the bullets went Inside of the
car and passed between and a trifle below
the knees of Miss Elizabeth Bommer of
Albright, penetrating her dress and Im
bedding Itself In the wood under the seat.
The bullet Is now In th.e hands of Chief of
Detectives Savage. When he had fired the
hots tha man hurriedly left the car as
several men on board started at him.
y . Meyers' store waa entered by an un
, .masked robber a week ago Friday night.
and while the fellow waa helping himself
at tha cash drawer the proprietor made a
' dash for the side door, escaping, tho'jgh ft
hot was fired after him. When he went
around to the front the robber was gone.
The arrest Is looked upon with satisfac
tion by the police, who believe another
embryo outlaw has been rounded up even
before he has got fairly started and be'
fore blood has been shed. That no one
waa struck by the several bullets fired by
Snyder la considered remarkable, and espe-
daily Is the escape of Miss Simmers looked
upon as fortunate, as she vory narrowly
escaped being crippled. Bnyder, the police
'" and others who know htm asert, is one
'' of the "Sloppy" Smith crowd, which la
, accused of having at various times had
plane In view for robbing street car barns.

free In this building if you prefer," replied
the dumfounded conductor. Hesitation was
brief on the part of the waiting women,

purposes elevators were Invented and they
rode up to the proper floor amid the "Haw,
Haws" of the unfeeling masculine passen
gers. Good BMp Omaha Boon The steamer

Friends from Tonapah fleseeeh In
Vain that Our Jim Abandon
Chase for Fame and
John Tlnnan and John Carey dropped In
on Mayor Dahlman Saturday morning'. Th
two Johns were Just from Tonopah and
brought tiding of one Charles Evans, who,
when last met by the mayor, was earning
a weekly pittance a hotel clerk In Rush
villn, Nob. Evan made a stake of $,00i)
In Lead, 8. P., and later lost this bagatelle
between dawn and darkness one day.
Messrs. Tinnan and Carey told the mayor
that Evans Is now In Tonopah and worth
"That beats being mayor and Issuing
proclamations," exclaimed Mayor Jim, as
he began to comprehend what a $1,000,000
roll looked like tucked away In a pocket.
Mr. Tinnan said the banks in Tonopah
had ts.0i,000 now on deposit for clients
who wanted to hare a little spending
money laid away In case reverses struck
them and the railroad tracks were crowded.
Mayor Jim, however, has no inclination
to hie Tonopahward. He say he will finish
out his term as mayor of Omaha and hope
to get a cabinet position when Bryan be
comes president of these United States.
Jim Secretary of Interior.
"This la on the square." said Mayor
James. "It's all fixed; . Bryan will be
elected, Dick Metcalfe will be secretary of
state and I will be eecretary of the In

west who knows tho work of tha Interior
department better than I do."
And right there and then the merits
of millions and glory were whipped out
under a fever-heat discussion, the mayor
taking the end of fnme and glory and
Tinnan that of millions.
"I came to Omaha to get you to resign
this stinking little office of mayor, Jim,
and go with me to the west, where mil
lions await you. And you say 'No, I'm
going on with this game of politics." Well,
It's me back to the mines, and when you

TEMPORARY JMJER STANDS
Injunction In South. Oiuaha Board of
Education Case 1
Judge Kennedy rendered Judgment In the
South Omaha Board of Education con
troversy at 9:46 Saturday morning sustain
ing the temporary restraining order .sued
on tha petition of A. L. Berquist. The only
point which waa material In the opinion of
the Judge was the force of the rule of the
board designating the time and the manner
of the election of teachers. The old rule,
he hold, would be in force until It were
properly modified. This, he claimed, had
been attempted, but had not been done in
order a prescribed by the rules touching
on such a modification. The rule for modi
fication as adopted requires that a two
thirds vote shall be necessary to such a
change. This, In the case of tho Board
of Education, would require four votes.
The fact that a simple majority bad voted
for the new rule would not be effective.
Therefore It I held illegal to elect the
teacher until after the 'organisation of the
All allegation of conspiracy of improper
motives in the case were Ignored by the
Judge, who'thought there was no conspiracy
possible in a board doing at any time what
it had a right to do. Therefore the prospec
tive meeting of the board will be In all
probability a tame affair.

LAWYERS TALK ON LEGISLATION
Henry T. Clarke, Jr., and H. P. Dade
Talk on Work of the Past
The Douglas County Bar association held
lta quarterly meeting last evening In the
Commercial club rooms. The following at
torneys were admitted to membership:
Howard Baxton, Jess P., Palmer. Jame M.
Fltsgerald and Charle E. Bmoyer.
Henry T. Clarke. Jr., and N. P. Dodge. Jr..
reviewed some of the laws passed by th
"The terminal tas bill did net go a fsr
as we had hoped," said Mr. Clarke, "but
It placed Nebraska In the front rank ot
state legislating In this direction. On
state, Georgia, Is still ahead of us. In
Georgia the frunchlse of the railroad Is
tsxed and the money so raised Is dis
tributed among the eountlts proportionately
as the tangible property of th4 railroad is
"The greatest accomplishment of the
legislature, I think, was the Inspiration
of confidence In the hearts of the people
that theyn elect men to make their laws
who will carry out the things for which
they are elected. People whom we meet
on the street every day and the public
praus reflect the satisfaction which the
people feel In their legislators.'!
Mr. Dodge explained the purpose and
effect of a number of the new laws.
J. A. C. Kennedy read a paper on the
"History of the Contraction of Legislative
Powers." He pointed out that the powers
of legislatures In recent years have been
curtailed considerably. Constitutions to
lay are considerably longer and more Iron
bound than In former days and the old
constitution are being amended and recon
structed. Departments are being created,
as In Nebraska, the labor, fish and game
and Insurance departments. Commissions
are being formed and all tuke power from
the hands of the legislature.
He traced the reason for thi to the small
pay offered legislators.
"A conservative estimate of a man' ex
penses to get elecUd. to give his time and
to bear the expense while at the session
Is VZl." Mr Kennedy. "Against thU

Judge W. D. McHugh made a short ad
dress In a rather sarcastic vein. He saw
no reason to apprehend a startling curtail
ment of the legislature' Jurisdiction in
face of the statement that nearly 250 law
were passed at the but session. He de
plored the penalising of so many things
and the ''government Interference" in th
affair of th individual.
After the speeches lunch was served.
RULES FOR BURIAL GROUNDS
Hew Ordinance Outlined at Meetlna;
with Cemetery Omclala and
Councllmen Bedford, Zlmman and Mc
Govern yesterday afternoon met for the
second time within the week representa
tive of the various cemeteries. The pur
pose of these meetings was to go over three
ordinances recently placed on file by the
council and to pick out of these ordinance
sections that would properly regulate ceme
teries and yet not work a hardship on any
After carefully discussing the matter the
council committee decided to recommend
that the new ordinance to be prepared by
Assistant City Attorney Rlne Include a
provU'on that In case grave are dug and
evidence I found of previous burial such
digging shall Mot be completed, but the
grave be Immediately closed up and a
marker placed over the spot. This feature
has particular reference to Prospect Hill
cemetery, the official of which cemetery
were charged some time ago with Irregu

In the cemetery, a wa at first proposed,
was yesterday deemed unwise, In view of
statements made by Judge Baldwin and
H. W. Yates of the Prospect Hill Cemetery
association. This regulation, however, will
apply to all cemeteries, although Prospect
Hill was particularly referred to yesterday.
The committee agreed that all cemetery
associations should file with the health de
partment plats showing locations of all
lots tn such cemeteries and before being
given permit for burials or reburials the
exact location must be filed with the health
commissioner. The Idea Is to permit the
city to have a complete record of all grave
