Registered Package Sent by Soath
Omaha Bank and Lost from
' Traia Falls Into Strange
Deputy United States Marshal Moore has
returned- from Big; Springs, near where he
succeeded In arresting; the two Japanese
track walkers who were charged with ap
propriating; the contents of a registered
mall package of 1500 that they found on the
railway tracks among other contents of a
mall pouch that had fallen from a mall
cur and was badly ground up by the wheels
of the same or a following train. K. Ka-
whara. one of the Japs, was held In 12,000 J
ball and locked up In the North Platte Jail,
while the other Jap, M. Takana, was dis
charged, no evidence being found against
Mm that would warrant his being held.
The package of money was sent from
the South 'Omaha National bank to the
Bank of Llewellyn, February 17. and the
pouch was lost from the train the fol
lowing day. The two Japanese track walk-
rs found the' fragments of the destroyed
mall pouch, including, the $600, or rather
I486 of It. Three $5 bills had been cut In
two uifdsp-ho- wheels and: the Jape-sue
reeded in finding only a half ef each of
them.' '.
Enter Three Trauma.
Monlay night, June 10. three tramps
named Allison, Linen and Drake, broke Into
the Japanese bunk house at Big Springs.
The Japs discovered them while In the act
ef the burglary and took after them and
With the assistance of the section - boss,
eventually captured them and turned them
over to the state authorities. Upon being (
searched the three tramps were found to
have In their possession the three frag
ments of the IS bills stolen from the bunk
house. t
In the meanwhile Poetofflee Inspector M.
M.8teelo had been searching for the lost
money and succeeded In recovering most of
the mall and also found the other three
fragments of the 15 bills,- which he had
ent to Washington for further Investiga
tion. Steele 'learning that pieces of three
S bills had been recovered from the men
who robbed the bunk house concluded that
they were mates to the ptoces he had found,
on the railway track In February
Ground for Investigation.
This at .once furnished ground for an In
vestigation of the Japanese track walkers,
from whose effects the burglars had stolen
the pieces of the bills. The Jape were
confronted with the charge of finding the
money package, but denied It at first, say
ing the bills had been torn In two while
betnff taken- from an envelope and that they
had received the money from friends In
Hawaii.' ,
8. "O. Insuye, of Cheyenne, a Japanese
Interpreter, was called Into the case and
Kawhara admitted having found the money
package and that Takana knew nothing
about H. The latter was discharged and
Kawhara held by United States Commis
sioner R-'A.. Day, at Oskoah, Nob., before
whom tho examination was held. A search
ef Kaw haras trunk was made-and the re
mainder of the money, about 1160, was re
covered. The three tramps who robbed the bunk
ouse wore tried at a special term of the .

Vlnsonhaler Says This Precluded Him
Demanding and Fixing Mar
rinse Fees.
That the dignity of hi office as county
judge precluded him from demanding; and
collecting the fees fixed by law for ' the
papers and other services of the county
Court was the statement made by Judge D.
M. Vlnsonhaler on the witness stand In
the case In which the county Is seeking to
collect from ex-County Judges Baxter and
Vlnsonhaler certain fees, Including- marriage
fees, pocketed by them while In offlce.
"When a case came up for a decision I
could hardly say to the parties that unless
they paid the fees I would not give them a
decision," declared Vlnsonhaler. "I was
placed there to dispatch the business as
rapidly as possible."
"And therefore you considered you bad a
tight to neglect the fees fixed by law to be
P14 to the county?" asked Attorney Howell.
Attorneys for Baxter and Vlnsonhaler
held that the fees were not fixed by law.
Another point on which the two Judges are
seeking to escape liability la the fact that
since the beginning of Judge Leslie's term
of office certain of these back fees have
been collected and paid to and reoelved by
the oountjy.
Judge Vlnsonhaler admitted that in his
capacity as Justice of the peace he de
manded fees In advance.

bill and the Aldrloh freight rate bill. "The

tofore they have always Jumped Into the
courts and aevured Injunction to swereat

and I believe the commission Is gotng to
give the people a great amount of relief. "

Dleewaslon of Proposed Compromise
with the Union Pacific
''Absence of J. P. Breen renders Impos
sible a decision as to the compromise pro
posed In the tax suit of the city against
the Union Pacific Railroad company which
was up for consideration between the legal
department of the city and tho railroad
tax officials Wednesday afternoon.
The conference was brief. The company
offered to pay taxes on real estate on an
assessment of five times 168,000, the amount
returned by the assessor for 1908 and on
$300,000 -In place of 1188,000, the amount re
turned, by the assessors for the same
year. j
As far as the real estate tax Is con
cerned both parties agree that the .ques
tion has been determined by the courts and
Is not at Issue, so the discussion centered
about the personal tax and the penalty to

be Imposed for delinquent taxes. Under
the law delinquent city taxes bear penalty
at the rate of 1 percent a month, which
In the case of the amount at Issue tn the
suit, would be about 86 percent, the taxes
being now overdue about three years. Tho
railroad desires to pay penalty of 7 percent
a year.
It was suggested that If the real estate
assessment had been Judicially determined
at five times the amount of the original
assessment the personnl property assess
ment should be Increased at the same
rate, which would make an assessment In
excess of 1900,000; but on the other hand It
was asserted the personal property had
been assessed at what the assessor believed
to be Its full cash value, while the real
estate was assessed at about tO percent
of Its full cash value.
The matter was allowed to rest until the
return of Mr. Breen. , ,
