LAW TO EJECTH5LD VALID
Right of I.andlerd to Remove Trnaut

The new law giving landlords the right
to eject tenants from property after a
bond ha been (Tied to protect the losses
Which such tenants may svstatn has beeu
declared constitutional by Judge Howard
Kennedy and Incidentally Labor Templo as
sociation hopes to get possession of the
rooms leased by It In the old State hotel
building on Douglas street.
This building was bought several months
sgo by E. M P. Lertang. who about "the
same time leased the upper rooms to La
bor Temple association. The. former ten
ants, who conducted the State hotel, de
sired to remain and litigation was Insti
tuted last winter which dragged along until
the law enacted by the legislature last win
ter became effective. Then suit was started
uuder the new law for possession of the
premises. The occupants of the upper
rooms, attacked the constitutionality of
the law, but lost their point. Mr. Leflang
was required to give bond In the sum of
$S,0(O, which was done and the manager
of the hotel was given ten days In which
to move before orders to dispossess him
would be given to the sheriff.
MARRIAGE SURPRISE AT HOME
Wedding- of Moskler G. Colpetser
and Miss SweasbereT Creates
Telegrams have been received In Omaha
announcing the marriage of Moshler G.
Colpetser of Omaha and Miss Bertha
Swonsberg, formerly of this city, In Now
York City Thursday evening. The message,
which included the bare announcement of
the time and place of the wedding, came
as a complete surf rise to everyone, includ
ing Mr. and Mrs. Frank Colpetser, parents
of the groom
Mr. Colpetser went to New York last
Saturday to meet Miss Bwensberg, who re
turned a few days ago from a three years'
sojourn In Europe and It was expected by
his family that the wedding would take
place some time this fall. Mrs. Colpetser
was a ward of the late Dean and Mrs.
Campbell Fair and made her home with
them during their residence in Omaha.
Since Dean Fair's death she has lived
abroad with friends most of the time.
While there had been no formal announce
ment of an engagement. It was taken for
granted In Omaha social circles In which
both Mr. and Mrs. Colpetser are prominent,
and Mr. Colpetser's two recent visits to
Europe served to strengthen suspicion.
Miss Bwensberg made her debut In Omaha
society about six years ago and Mr. Col
petser Is equally well known socially and
In business circles, being secretary and
treasurer of the Chicago Lumber company.

PAPA SOMETHING OF A HUMORIST
lias Little Fan on the side While
Ilia Boys Are Winning; the
Long, Slender Bant
ing. They were a pair who would have been
welcomed by gold brick men as rain is
welcomed by weary travelers In the desert.
They wandered Into' Pa Rourke's ball yard
out on Vinton street. Apparently It was
their first ball game In the great city.
Sherlock Holmes would have noted the
mud on their shoes and the short red
hairs on their clothes and said they had
come In from the country with live stock.
He would have perceived the peculiar
Btyle of "paint brush" wniskers which
bloomed on the chin of one and the
neglected condition of the other's "soup
strainer" moustache and said they were
recently from Bingvllle. He would have
noted the way their eyes took in every
thing and said they were having the time
of their lives. He would have observed
the way they chewed their reeking stogies
and the way they went out and hurried
to the thirst parlor across the street and
said they were "blowing themselves" In a
perfectly scandalous manner and in a way
it would never do to let the folks at Bing
vtlle hear about.
In all these conjectures Sherlock would
have been correct. The facts were clear
even to ordinary people without the wisdom
of the great detective. Pa Rourke and his
gatekeepers observed It. Pa's sense of
humor and his love of a Joke Is too well
known to need expatiating upon.
Often Get Tblrety.
During the progress of the game th
two men from Blngvtlle found it necessary
to go out and allay their thirst at the
thirst fountain behind the swinging doors
arross the street.
(Note to the reader: Return checks are
not given at the ball park.)
"Cn we come back in if we go out.
mlsterf asked he of the paint brush ton
sorlal adornment as they appeared at the
Pa hated to do it. It was like taking
candy front a baby. But it was too good
to miss. Assuming a Judicious and solemn
look, be motioned to the two. They camo
close and he whispered Into their ears:
"When you return repeat these lines to
the gate keeper: "Tell me not in mournful
numbers, life Is but an empty dream.' "
The two appeared somewhat dazed, but
they repeated the mystio lines ovcr onoo
and then' went out. Their progress was
watched by half a dosen who were "In
on" the Joke. The two consulted earnestly
together as they half ran toward the thirst
parlor. 6urely the ways of the great city
Boon one of them returned. Ho stepped
up to Dick Grotte, who was at the money
window, put his lips to his ear and sol
emnly repeated the first two lines of the
"Psalm of Life," as per Instructions of
the man that let htm go out. Then he
stood aside waiting for the other. Pre
sently he of the paint brush whiskers ar
rived breathless. He also repeated the
mystic pass words, and then the two hur
ried up to the bleachers.
Truly the ways of the city were marvelous.
FALL FRUITS THE MARKET
Home Grown Grapes, Cantaloapes of
the llorUy Ford and Other
Home-grown grapes and sweet potatoes
delighted the hearts of the marketers Fri
day morning for the first of the season
are In this week. The grapes were raised
in the Immediate vicinity of Omaha and
are selling for 60 cents an eight-pound
basket. The sweet potatoes are good for
the early product and sell two pounds for
15 cents. The very first of the genuine
Colorado Rocky Ford cantaloupes came In
Friday morning. They came In small local
shipments by express and the hotels and
cafes got most of them. They sold at 20
cents each, but will be more plentiful and
cheaper soon. Home-grown cantaloupes
are in and sell from 10 to 16 cents, ac
cording to site, but their quality Is not
uniform and cannot be depended upon.
Watermelons are much cheaper, selling
from 15 to 35 cents each. Potatoes are 20
cents a peck.
Everything In the way of fruit Is so ex
pensive that it Is not selling readily. All
the California fruits are going up m price
every day, the peaches selling for 40 cents
and the pears for 60 cents a dozen. Huckle
berries came In this week and sell for IK
cents a quart box, while the last of the
blueberries are bringing tu cents a quart
box and are not plentiful. A few black
berries were to be had Friday morning.
soiling for 10 cents a quart box, but they
were not choice by any means. Apples are
getting more plentiful, the best eating va
rieties selling for 60 cents a peck and the
cooking for 40 cents a peck. Wild plums
are Just about out of market and are only
to be had In a few basket lots from some
of the farmers who chance to bring
Vegetables are a little higher than they
have been, but the choice includes the
usual summer varieties.
Eggs have gone up this week from 18 to
20 cents a dozen for the ordinary "fresh"
ggs. Other eggs are to be had for 16 cents
a dozen, but the purchaser at that price
takes chances. Fancy eggs range from
26 to 40 cents a dosen.
Creamery butter Is 28 cents a pound
package and good country butter sells
from 24 to 28 cents a pound. Much of this
butter Is, by the way, Just as good and
sweet as the package creamery, for all
housekeepers are well aware that the
package Is by no means a guaranty agalnut
rankness or strongness.
Chickens sold at wholesale from 12 to
12Vi cents a pound Friday morning and re
tailed at a variety of prices. Broilers Sold
(wholesale) at 18 cents a pound, spring
ducks at 13 cents and a few spring geese
at 13 cents a pound.

MONEY TIGHT IN THE EAST
Result of Attempt by Corporations to
Force a Panic. Bays Will
"Money Is a little tight In the east and
Is getting tighter," said Will L. Yetter Fri
day morning on his return from New
York, where he has been buying wall pa
per and visiting. "It is the general Impres
sion thero that the corporations are trying
to force a panlo on Wall street to punish
the country for anti-corporation legisla
tion." Mr. Yetter snld the price of wall paper
had been advanced because there was not
enough water in the streams of northern
New York to run the pulp mills. It Is very
dry in the eastern states and the crops do
not look so well as they do west.
