Ing to substantiate hla strange ploa that
be killed tils friend, Joseph Fiorenza aa an
act of mercy after ho had been accidentally
Colombo almoKt broko down several times
when he Waa describing tho Incident. He
was c'Xtri.-mely nervous and sat bolt up
right In the witness chair, shifting his eyes
constantly, from, one part of the room to
another, sometimes turning almost com
pletely around In the chair to get a view
of a remote corner of the room. , He was
unable to speak a word of English and
hla evidence had to be given through Sam
uel Mancusco, acting as. Interpreter,
v Colombo said after he and Fiorenza had
bunted awhile they built a fire to warm
themselves. Fiorenza, he said, went Into
the weeds nearby while he held the gun.
"Fiorenza was stooping over," he said,
''when he called to me and said he saw
some birds and for me to shoot them. I
took the gun up and It went off. I did
not notice then that Fiorenza waa shot,
but put In another shell. Then I saw Fior
enza put hla hands to his face and
I knew he was shot. He begged me
to shoot him again to put him out of his
misery and I did so and then, ran away.
I did not touch hla body after I shot him."
Colombo Imitated Florenza's death strug
gle In a weird way while he was relating
the story In Italian. Me aald he ran to
Cut-Oft lake and there therew the rest of
the shells In the water. Then he went
home and went to bed. He admitted on
cross-examination that he had told no
one of the accident. He aald he was very
badly acared. He also denied having any
trouble with Fiorenza or robbing the body,
declaring the , two were like brothers.

"It's really a greater Omaha than I
thought It was!"
One at a time more than 100 members of
the Commercial club of Omaha dropped
this verdict as the party walked over the
seven acres In the warehouse and factory
of M. T. Smith & Co., and through the
long aisles In the warehouse of the United
Statea Supply company yesterday after
noon. It waa the first local "trade excursion"
started under the banner of the new en
tertainment committee, which Is "Know
For some time It haa been the opinion
of the officers and committeemen of the
Commercial club that every business man
of Omaha would be a good advertisement
for the city either while entertaining cus
tomers and friends In the city or while
traveling In tb east and west, if he could
Just be filled full of facts and pictures
of Omaha Industrial life. E. A. Hlnrlchs,
chairman of the committee having the ex
cursions In charge, haa been of the opinion
that Omaha business men are not doing
enough boasting about the city and that
the strange deficiency was due to the fact
that In the days of stiff competition It was
necessary to have a vast amount of in
formation to be a successful boaster, espe
cially, against some prize winners who
travel out of Kansas City and Chicago.
But Mr. Hlnrlchs, Commissioner Guild,
President Tetter and Chairman Martin of
the executive committee declared after the
first local excursion that the problem had
been solved and after three doses Omahans
will be able to boast and boost then make
good on all statements.
Kxroraton Leaves on Time.
The "train" which ran over the side
walk on the south side of Farnam street
pulled out of the Board of Trade building
on schedule time, 1:30 p. m. Tuesday, as
advertised on the billboards. The follow
ing Wore the crew In charge: K. A. Hln
rlchs, pilot; II. K. Rurket, engineer on
the first division; , W. R. Wood second
division; Albert Cahn, F. W. Judson and
E. E. Brando, conductors, with E. T. Hey
den as rear brakeman.
The first stop waa at the fVont door
of M. E. Smith & Co.'s. The "crowd"
which greeted the excursionists at the big
wholesale house consisted of Arthur C.
Smith, head of the company, and "Joe"
Kelly, the official lecturer for M. E.
Smith & Co., who explained the anatomy of
all machinery and made hundreds of In
troductions. Mr. Smith led the way through the
business office to the freight elevators,
Where the guests were hoisted to the
eighth floor, where the working clothes
are stored. Everything on the double
floor, 132x132, waa matte In Omaha ex
cept some coats "lined with Russian
wool," as Lecturer Kelly explained.
Down the Iron stairways to othor floors
the entire party was conducted by Mr.
Smith to the factories, wnere the guests
were shown where their shlrta come from.
There It was demonstrated that the mod
ern factory has never improved on
mother's method of cutting out garments
wnn a ' buzz-saw," aa ninety and 100
shlrta were "ripped" out at once.
in the big work rooms the air waa so
much better that it waa noticed by the
guests. It aeemed to taste better than
anything within seventy-five miles of
South' Omaha and was being washed aa a
big fan distributed It equally among the
girls working at sewing machines, button-hole
workers, and a variety of other
machinea which worked like bicycle
pumps, but made shirts.
Yoaag Women at Machinea.
Almost every machine was operated by
a young woman, all of them dreesed neatly
and comparing more than favorably with
any equal number of young women In
Onwiha, whether clerks, stenographers or
waiteresses. They were all busy under the
care of Mrs. Doebeck, who has perfected
an . organization of faithful garment
workera, which match any similar organi
zation In the world.
'What does me good Is to see the girls
want to work," said Mr. Smith. "A few
months ago It waa hard to get girls, but
when we put an advertisement In the
papers now for girls, we get the appli
cations. I hate to see a time when girls
aon t want to work. It is a sign that the
country has nervous prosperity. Things are
normal now when a girl who wants work
can get It and an employer who wants to
hire a capable young woman can aecure
her at good wages."
One of the most difficult machinea in the
big factory to handle waa a "cuff maker"
and It was being operated by a young
colored woman. whose trained fingers
demonstrated that they were fitted for the
work at hand.
Through the long dining rooms, covered
with white the party passed to the check
ing and ahipplng rooms in the basement.
Here were two novelties which members
of the party will tell about for some time
to come. The first waa a scheme to keep
the stenographer'a work from becoming
monotonous. The young women were seated
on stands, which were run on tracks along
the checking tablea. One minute a girl
would be at the east end of the room writ
ing a bill for a shipment of women's hose
and a few minutes later aha would be at
the extreme west end billing out some
red calico for the Winnebago Indians.
Another scheme waa to preserve the
voices of several young boys and train
them for the vested choirs. Instead of
calling the numbers and towns, they
chanted them In a light breesy way, not at
all disagreeable. The singing youngsters
also make It much eaaler on the nervea
of tbe stenographers, who muat copy the
bills and more than one buslneaa man
threatened to hire a chorister aa aoon aa he
could aecure the proper kind of a choir
What Impressed the business man moat
oa the long trip through the warehouse and
factory, waa the "modernneaa." From tbe
overall atore rooms to the engine rooms,
everything waa done In auch a manner that
even tho gcnlus-atiicken in the party of

Decidedly noncommittal and ambushing
himself behind the statement that as yet
he has not seen the 'decree of the court
of appeala, Theodore C. Woodbury, presi
dent of the Omaha Water company, atatea
emphatically that he will not be Inter
viewed and that he will aay nothing what
ever about hia company or the decision of
the court regarding- the appraisement of
the plant and the city's move to buy It.
Mr. Woodbury arrived Wedneaday morn
ing from his home In New York and is
stopping at the Omaha club, expecting to
be here aeveral weeks.
Asked If he considered the decree of the
court of appeala made It mandatory upon
the city to buy the water works plant
whether or no, or whether It simply meant
thst If the plant was purchased by the
city the price should be the 16.263.296.49
agreed upon by the appraisers, Mr. Wood
"Well, what have we been fighting for
the last five years if it waa not that we
want to sell?
"I did not say the plant pays a dividend.
We got hold of it under the foreclosure
of a mortgage and have wanted to get
rid of it for yeara. It doesn't pay to oper

Asked about the Water board and the
reaaon for the exlatence of that body, Mr.
Woodbury replied that In his opinion about
all the members did waa to draw their
aalariea every month and keep the ques
tion of the purchase of the water plant In
the courts for a number of years and pile
up the costa for the city.

ANNIVERSARY OF BLIZZARD
Thirty-Five Years Ago Terrible Storm
Struck the West.
NEBRASKA AND KANSAS CENTER
Never Equalled for Intensity and
Scope of Its Disaster Wind,
Sleet and Snow the
Wednesday, April 15, was the thirty-fifth
anniversary of the big blizzard and aleet
storm that struck the west with varied de
grees of intensity, with Its center over
southern Nebraska and northern central
The first twelve days of April qf 1873 were
as mild and balmy as was ever known to
any apring time. On the morning of the
13th a snow and sleet storm started which
has never been equalled in intensity and
disastrous results in the west. It prevailed
for three days. In Nebraska the gale blew
for two daya at a rate of sixty to eighty
miles an hour and the snowfall was tre
mendous. Grand Island was completely cut
off from the world and at York the snow
tall reached a depth of nearly five feet.
Railroad traffic was suspended through
out the entire west. Fortunately It waa
not extremely cold, but the wind and anow
were terrific. Cattle and aheep perished
by thousands. In that early day no prep
aration had, been nor could be made for
the protection of live stock. Many lives
were lost during the storm throughout
Mostly Sleet in Kansas.
In Kansas it assumed the nature of a
sleet storrn and the deatructlon of live
alock in that state far exceeded the loss
In Nebraska. The country cast of "Wal
lace, Kan., to the Missouri river was a
veritable sea of Ice and sleet. Cattle were
driven before the storm into draws and
canons and perishod there In the floods
of sleet and ice that awept down on them.
A peculiarity of the atorm was that It
