Tex., prisoner Is 2J ytars old and gives the
name of Julius G. Truelson, Jr." He claims
to be the son -of a wealthy manufacturer.
Truelson has been 'In. -Jell there since
March 2. charged with, swindling by repre
senting himself to be Jonathan Q. Thaw of
Pittsburg, a cousin of Marry K. Thaw, and
passing many forged checks.
Traeleon Disposed of Wife.
Aocording to the alleged confession ot
Truelson, h took his wife, Mae Frances
O'RelHey of Rochester, N. Y to the
Guinness fsrm to have her put out of the
way and helped Lamphere bury her, and
assisted In disposing of six other bodies' at
the Uulnnesa farm. ,
Mae O'Reilly Is missing. Truelson Jr., has
since retracted the alleged confession. The
police of Rochester tried ten days ago to
find her and reported that she had disap

to 'he "confession." took her to La Porte
to have her killed so that he could marry
again. Jewelry bearing the name of Mae

to the Guinness farm.
All that prevented him, the "confession"
says, was a letter from Mrs. Guinness tell
ing him that the sheriff was making iw
qulrte a bo at the disappearance of some ot
her victims and that he should come alone.

Truelson declared in the "confession,"
that Mrs.- Guinneaa told him she was prac

ot her patients died, and it was part ot
her contract to dispose of the bodies. Phe
said she had one man, but tt required two

Sheriff Smutxer reached La Porte this
forenoon. He said:
"I will continue the Investigation Into
the alleged confession of Truelson, even

Relatives say Story Is False.
NEW TORK, June 1. -Julius O. Truelson,
the young man whose alleged confession
In connection with the Guinness farm mys
tery and his subsequent retraction was
made public today, Is believed by his family
to be mentally unsound. His brother,
Hsrry, said Julius had been Irresponsible
' since he was struck by a trolley car In
Broadway here five years ago. Julius sus
tained Injury to the skull at that time, the
brother said, and Harry believe his brain
affected. Harry said the story told by
Julius of .his connection with the Guinness
farm affair could not possibly be true, as
Julius was serving a eerlenre in Elmlra
reformatory at the time covered by the
alleged . confession. Young Truelson'
family are In fairly good circumstances

"Some Objections to the Dayton Plan," by
A. Truesdell of Fremont; "Amendment to
the Nebraska Building and Loan Associa
tion Law," by William Balrd of Omaha;
"Building and Loan Associations attract a
Business Man," by David Cole of Omaha,
and "Should-Deposits be Guaranteed by
Stat and National Banks.". by C. F. Mc
Grew of Omaha. In his paper Mr. McOrew
took a strong stand against the guaran
teeing of deposits, holding that-Instesd of
inviting honesty In the administration of
bank affairs, such a law would act exactly
the reverse. He held further that such a
law would haev the effect of driving many
conservative bankers out of tho business,
because It would place them at the mercy
of careless and dishonest bankers. "Bank
ing is a private business," he said, "built
up by the enterprise, conservatism and
honesty of honest men. Two-fifths of the
entire banking business of -the world Is
done by the American banks and nowhera
In the world is that business conducted

The guaranteeing of deposit of a bank

Mr Balrd, In ' his ' paper, recommended
that the by-laws of the association should

In concluding his address Mr. Nattlnger
recommended that the associations adopt

'The Lightning; Conductor" nt th
The Woodward Stock company has un
dertaken quite a task for the current week,
but Is showing its ability to successfully
attack big propositions In presenting "The
Lightning Conductor." The piece Is a
sparkling comedy, but one that has to be
handled with' "great precision and exact
Judgment In order to bring out US points.
It ts full of good things, and overrunning
with comedy, and gives each of the prin
cipals a tine chance. The story ts that
of a young American woman who with
her aunt Is touring France In a motor car.
Difficulties arise and their chauffeur de
serts them. A young 'Englishman discovers
them, and by offering himself as a cheuf-
feur succeeds In rescuing the ladles. But
he falls In love with the younger, and she
with htm. although she doesn't know it.
Their little romance Is getting Into smooth
water when another Frenchman, who Is
also a scalawag, undertakes to secure the
girl for himself, by. having the pretended
chauffeur arrested Cor the murder of the
young Englishman. Matters are a little
further complicated by the appearance of
rich, but uncouth brewer with his daugh
ter and the young, man's mother. The
mother and father -have arranged, a mar
riage for the young (tfilks, although neither
of these have seeoach other. They en
counter casually buj; the match. . falls
tnrougn. inree. acts are devoted to the
telling of the story,, and its course run
true through a number of very Interesting
situations, some verging on melodrama, but
most of them of a high comedy sort.
Miss Fleming Is really charming as the
young American girl.' It Is a lighter part
than she has yet undertaken, bilt she gives
It with care and good effect. Miss Spencer
Is doing her usual good work as the maiden
aunt, who Is sent out to chaperone the girl,
but who really needs a chaperone herself.
Miss Duke as the brewer's daughter, Miss
Power as the mother of the romantlo young
man, and Miss Huston aa the Inn keeper'
daughter are all well situated.
Mr. Morrison makes a very good chauf
feur, even If he does have to watch him
self to keep his true character from crop-
pint out Mr. Denlthorne a the French
marplot Is clever, and Mr. Poult'er and, Mr.
Schrode as chauffeurs, the one French and
the other German, are good. Mr. Paul has
a comedy part, that ot the bumptious Brlt,-
lsn nrewer, wnicn gives mm run scope xor
his established ability. ' A' number of others
are in the long casU and all do well.
Mr. Livingstone has provided sn unus
ually effective setting tor the piece. The
roadside scene ' that iopejis he piece, and
the panoramic . effect that follows are
splendid bits of Illusion, and each of the
othep- scenes are wel(, staged- The comedy

REVISED LUMBER RATE GOES
Compromise Tariff on Shipments front
Hon III - In Knet from
Mondsy the new rate on southern lumber
Into Nebrsska went Into effect, no formal
protest hsvlng been filed. Onsha formerly
had less rate on this southern lumber
than Lincoln and tr s Lincoln Commercl.il
club filed a protest with the lnffrstate
Commerce commission, claiming that Un
coln was entitled to a less rate from the
south thsn Omaha because some ot the
lumber had to pasd through Lincoln to gvt
The Interstate Commerce commission, af
ter a hearing on the case, ordered that the
rates be adjusted so thst Lincoln would
hot have a higher rate than Omaha. The
railroads obeyed the order, but they
equalised the rates by raising on both
cities. The rat from the Texas group of
states and corresponding groups was raised
I cent to Lincoln snd 2 cents to Omaha.
Many complaints were made over the
method used by the rstlroads In adjusting
the rates and nlthough the lumbermen held
several meetings, no formal complaint
were lodged with th commission, although
It was stated that th southern lumbermen
were to do so.
