County Attorney Hess, upon relation of the

Mr. Battey was not present when the Jury

Judge Wheeler deferred issuing the order
for the removal of the defendant from of

have Uia right to take the case up on ap

the formal order for the removal of Mr,
Battey Is Issued by the court before taking
any action Is the general expectation. The
board is scheduled to meet June 1. Mean
while H. J. Chambers, who wss appointed
by Judge Wheeler to take charge of tho
office pending the determination of the
ouster suit, will continue to act as clerk
of the district court.
H. V. Battey, who had served as deputy
at Avoca under Freeman L. Reed, his pred
ecessor in office, was elected clerk of the
district court on the republican ticket In
November, 1904. He waa re-elected In No-
vember, 1906. and his term would have ex
pired at the close of this year.
Baaed on Expert's Report.
The action to remove Mr. Battey from
offlc was brought about by the report of
C. J. Rlchman. an expert accountant of De
Moines, who was employed by the Board
of Supervisors to check over the books and
accounts of the office of the clerk of the
district court. Mr. Rlchman reported that
I2.197.M was due the county from the clerk.
Of this amount 1878.(1 was alleged to repre
sent fees for making complete record In
cases which Mr. Battey had failed to turn
over to the county. The report also called
attention to numerous erasures and altera
tions in the records of costs and fees In
the office. The Board of Supervisors at
once referred the report to Judge Wheeler
of the district court, who on April 15 sus
pended Mr. Battey from offlc. On April
16 County Attorney Hess filed the petition
for the removal of Mr. Battey from the
office of the clerk of the district court.
In the petition charges of corruption, wilful
misconduct and maladministration In office
were made. The petition contained thirty

enjoy good health, with its blessings, to the fact that it involves the question of right
living with all the term implies. With proper knowledge of what is best each liouf
of recreation, of enjoyment, of contemplation and of effort may be made to contribute'
to that end and the use of medicines dispensed with generally to great advantage, but
as in many instances a simple, wholesome remedy may I invaluable if taken at the
proper time, the California Fig Syrup Co. feels that it is alike important to present
truthfully the subject and to supply the one perfect laxative remedy which has won
the appoval of physicians and the world-wide acceptance of the Well-Informed because
of the excellence of the combination, known to all, and the original method of manufac

This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of Figs and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well-Informed of the world to be the best cf natural

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Omaha Packing Company to Erect a
WORK IS TO COMMENCE AT ONCE
Chance that City and Champion Iron
Works May Agree on a Com
promise In the City Jail
General Manager 11. H. Culver of the
Omaha Packing company stated yesterday
that the building of a new and modern
smoke house for the Omaha plant would
begin at once. The new building will be
located at the southeast corner of tho new
plant and will be four or five stoilps In
height and valued at about 1100,000. Plans
for this building were filed nearly a year
ago and it Is likely that the construction
would now be under way had not the
present been a time of general liquidation,
during which few firms have engaged In
building new structures.
At the old plant, which Is still smoulder
ing from the big fire, it Is determined to
rebuild the ice plnt at all events. What
Other buildings will be constructed, have
not yet b?en determined by the manage
ment. The Insurance adjusters are In the
city busy with the estimates of losses.
Talk of Compromise on Jail.
It Is now hinted that there may be a
possibility of compromising the Jail rep
osition with the Champion Iron works.
The president of the company, G. J. Carter,
said he was anxious to avoid a suit. It
was suggested that the company might
take out at least one panel at the back
of each cell and substitute a grating with
out cost to the city. The attorneys for
the firm made a like statement yesterday
evening. It appears that the company Is
willing to compromise to save the expense
of a lawsuit. Tho city officials have ex
pressed a desire to accomplish the same
purpose. The expense or cost of making
the changes required will be nominal, and
It Is possible the city may get the com
pany to do the work by making the proper
advances. The police department Is
clamoring for the new Jail.
Runaway from Kearney Captured.
The police arrested Ralp Piper, known
popularly as "Boots Piper." yesterday as a
fugitive from Justice, He Is a boy who was
sentenced to a term In the Industrial School
at Kearney nearly a year ago. He escaped
from the school after he had been In Hie
Institution three days. About a week ago
h't returned tc South Omaha, and has been
In seml-hldlng ever since. Yesterday he
wat located at the residence of Marcells.
He told the police frankly all he had been
doing since he escaped from the reform
school. His experiences were varied with
humor and hardship. Just right to take the
ferey of a boy of bis ago. He seemM
ehetrful over his arrest. He may be re
turned within a few days to the school. He
was sent up for taking a brooch of consid
erable value from his benefactress.
