8T. LOUIS, Mo.. July ). (Special Tele
gram.) Wlllla Allmack. a 17-year-old boy,
arrested here today, says that two youths
of his own age killed Torn Chung Tun of
Omaha, nephew of Charley Choung, king
of the St. I.nuta Chinamen, on the night of
July 11. The boy said he did not know that
the murder was to be committed, but that
he witnessed the tragedy and accepted tao
of the proceeds of the robbery that fol
lowed It. Allmack said he was employed
tn the restaurant operated by Yun over the
Turf saloon In Omaha.
A second youth Implicated In the murder
also was employed there. The third boy
whs a chum of the other boy.
"The third boy," he said, naming the
youth, "enme to the place Shortly before
cloning time, which was usually In the

conversation with the boy, who was work

tha head with a piece of Iron. Pretty soon
the two came out of the room. They were
excited and told me I would have to go

M order Suspect t'aaaht.
Willis Allmack, allns Harry Rogers, the
Chief suspect In the Han Fak murder case,
was captured Friday by the police of St.
Ituls, so local officials were notified Satur
day. With his two companions. Joseph
Pumrhrey and the other man, who also
claimed the name of Rogers, Allmack left
Omaha at S o'clock on the morning of
Thursday, July 11. A few hours later the
Chinaman was found In the kitchen of the
Sing Hal Iw restaurant, where he slept,
frightfully beaten and very near death.
Allmack and the others were traced as far
as Chicago, where they separated. There
la hot much chance now, however, that the
others will escape.
Since the murder four detectives
Drummy, Molony, Sullivan and Mitchell
have been working on the care, under the
direction of Chief of Detectives Savage and
Chief of Police Donahue. Detective
Mitchell will leave for St. Louis Saturday
venlng to bring hack the prisoner.
The evidence agalnat Allmack Is largely
of a circumstantial nature, but a strong
case can be made against him, the police
say. He was a waiter In the Han Pak
establishment and knew very well where
the Chinaman kept his money. The other
Rogers, supposed at first to he his brother,
hid only recently entered the employ of tha
murdered man. A woman known to the
police saw the three suspects In the res
taurant late the night of the crime and
when the rooming place of Putnphrey was
uncovered It was found In a disorderly
condition, showing that his departure had
been unexpected and very hasty.
Thirty Think They Are Not Gettlngr

Driving rivets Into a gas tank on a hot
day for 12.75 per Is a Job which became so
arduous to the men employed on the enor
mous steel cylinder which Is being erected
for the Omaha Gas company at Twentieth
and Center streets that thirty-five of them
truck Friday afternoon and have not yet
returned td work. The contract for tha
tank Is held by the Btacey Manufactur
ing company of Cincinnati represented In
Omaha by Lou Venerable. The principal
complaint made by the men waa for
higher wages.
The rivet drivers have been receiving
12.75, the heaters 12, the burkera $3 and the
laborers $1.80. A raise of 25 centa a day la
demanded by all except the laborers, who
ask $2 a day. There are, according to tha
men, seven riveters, sevan heaters, seven
backers and fourteen laborers Involved. It
Is merely a local affair and not a union
question. Only three or four, of the
strikers have union cards. Among the
leaders are: H. Rasmuasen, F. S. Kuly, N.
Mack, F. Murtoff and William Ryan.
"It la simply an unfair Job," aay the
atrlkers. "Wa asked for living wagea
and he won't give them to us. The unions
officially have nothing to do with It, but
no loyal laboring man will take a Job on
the work while we are out."
"The affair amounts to nothing at all,"
ays Superintendent Venerable. "One or
two of my men got dissatisfied and wanted
an excuse to quit, so they took the wage
question. They are wrong on that propo

I he had reached such a ripe, happy old age.
Having proven nil that he said to be true,
' he spoke with authority and conviction:
Never worry.
I'on't get rich.
Don't stay poor.
Own bsnk stork.
Ion't speculate In wheat
Own your own home, and don't - want
to own any other man's.
Shoot huTalo with Buffalo Bill and ducks

Oet married and stay married.
Take a toddy three tlmrs a dav. and
smoke after you are 40. If you like It.
"Next Saturday the wife and I celebrate
our sixtieth anniversary," he said, "and I
would rather follow the path I have come
all over again than own all the houses in
Chicago. The best a man can do Is to be
happy. I am happy, and believe my life Is
a success.
"I have led the simple life. I have never
let anything come up to worry me. For
more than fifty years I have been In the
Board of Trade every day. I have seen
men wax rich In a day and accumulate
millions. And then I have seen their for
tunes shrink, and watched them pass Into
oblivion, and seen others rise ' In their
places. But I have kept out of It all. I
never bought a bushel of wheat rn my life.
I believe in the simple life In wheat.
"I have been a great hunter. I do not
believe that there Is any man In Chicago
who has killed as much game ns I have,
excepting the pot hunters. I have shot buf
falo with Buffalo Bill, and killed ducks out
of a canoe, fntil four years ago I used to
go to Missouri every fall and shoot quail.
That is good for the health of the man.
It's hard on the quail, of course.
"I take a toddy three times a day, once
before each meal. After I have had that, I
would not take another for the president

Adrift In a great city, with a draft for 17,
whloh he was afraid to cash, was the seri
ous situation of Dan W. Mcllvaln, who Is a
chronic, applicant for relief at the different
hospitals of the city. Mcllvaln received the
draft aoma time ago, but he did not get
It cashed at once and now It la a month old.
Ha aald he waa afraid to present It for
payment for fear there would be no money
to meet It and he would be arrested. At
least this was the excuse he gave when he
applied at tha County hospital for a place
to stay.
Mcllvaln declared he was suffering from
a severe attack of stomach tioublo and
waa given a berth at the hospital. He
waa happy for a few daya. when the pa
tient In the cot nert to him died. Two
hours afterward Mcllvaln'a dyspepsia dis
appeared. He packed hla grip and went
away. Now he haa applied to the county
commissioners for money to take him to
hta home In Ruakln.
Superintendent Morrla of the Associated
Charities haa promised to assist In get
ting the draft cashed and Mcllvaln prom-
lacs to go back home. For some time he

Method to Emptor la Meat
The proposed Inspection of meat offered
for sale In Omaha la still awaiting further
Investigation on the part of the health com
missioner, who la trying to secure more
data before preparing an ordinance to
cover tha case.
'I am not certain of the power of
Omaha to place Inspectors In South
Omaha," said Dr. Connell. but I see
no reason why tha city cannot exclude
meat which Is hot Inspected by a man
stationed In that place by tho city, and
the result would be the same. I have cer
tain knowledge that one dairyman sold
twenty-three cows at South Omaha re
cently and that eighteen of tha twenty
three were affected with tuberculosis. I
don't know who bought tha cows, but I do
know there la nothing to prevent them
having been sold In Omaha for food.
'Omaha should have as much right to
protect Ita clt liens as the federal govern
ment has to protect Its citlsens and we
will determine In what method the power
shall be enforced. "

Ocean Tlarere that Are Feared and
Hated br Every Seaman
Imagine a whole school of 4,000-pound
monsters swimming at railroad speed. And
with vast Jaws armed with twelve rows of
triangular teeth that spring erect like
snake fangs when prey Is struck In a
lightning dart. Such are the voracious and
dreaded ocean tigers, the largest of the
man-eating sharks, feared and' hated by
every seaman afloat. '
Last year the British cruiser Eurydlce
was at anchor off Santa Lucia In the
West Indies, and a party of marines were
disporting themselves In the sea around
the great armored walls. The water was
most Inviting for a swim and Petty Of
ficer Henry Pell was giving an exhibition
of fancy diving to his mates. Hla record
was a full minute under water. They
watched him swim downward Into trans
lucent deptha, and glance along the mlgftty
steel hull nearly six fathoms below, feeling
the velvety moss and- weed as he went.
'Sharks!" The word struck terror; tTie
mere sight of racing, knife-like dorsals
threw the helpless men Into a panic, but
they were soon out of harm's way swarm
ing up the sides of the vessel. Tills took
but a few aeconds. nenry Pell waa still
below. He, had left the weedy hull, how
ever, and waa swimming away from It
under water.
Suddenly he paused, about to rise. Some
thing vague and big took shape a shadow
or a blur a first against the lovely blue.
Then a mighty dun-ccjored form, tiger

with the peculiar side or lateral awing
of Its great tall that the man seemed to

could almost have touched the sharp, up

Pell knew he waa In frightful peril.
With audden resolution he shot up, and

ha knew he would, a little flotilla of the
fateful triangular fins. He waa perhaps
200 yards from the cruiaer and aaw a boat
being lowered. Slowly and with ,much
deliberate splashing he began hla return.
Now and then he would pause to look
behind, and saw always the looming shadow

A most ferocious creature. Now and then
It would spring level with htm. but at a

fast loalng hla self-control; he was tiring
and crying out to the men In the ap
proaching boat. The Immense shark, now
bolder, more determined, was lashing right
around him with Incredible speed, churning
the blue soa at the surface and narrowing
the circles at each revolution. A terrible
situation for a helpless man.
Once twice thrice It flashed Its vast
Jaws, only to dart back as Pell splashed
with the fury of desperation. Hut the
boat wss alongside. A doien eager hands
seised the swimmer while others attneked
the monster with boathVtoks and bayonets.
But It was not to be denied. Even
as Pell was In the very act of being hauled
over the aide the creature made one Inst

of the surgeons of the Eurydlce could save
him. Pell died next day.

taken of the Oreat Barrier reef thirty-six

most dreadful sight I have ever beheld.

Swifts Ilnsy In New lionae.
Swift and Company are now working at
full capuclty In their new beef plant. The
llrst killing began last Monday morning.
With a few minor delays due to the condi
tions of a new plant and new machinery,
the work haa continued steadily. There are
twelve killing beds In the part of the new
plant already erected. When the counter
part of tho piesent building Is done there
will be twenty-four beds. The killing Is
done on the top floor and all the products
descend by gravity to the various depart
ments in the most approved modern sys
tem. The foundations of the new section
alone cost the company $70,000. Blnce the
killing In the old section ceased the wells
are being sunk for the foundations for the
second section. These wells are made from
sixty to seventy feet deep, and after the
bedrock la reached are filled to the top with
concrete. On these columns the pillars
which support the Interior weight of the
building rest. It will require until next
year to complete the last section.

reason why South Omaha should not do
as well or better than any of them.
