BANK SUES FOR PRATT DEEDS
ILavlnsr Scored Judgment Against
tha Colonel Omaha, National
Wants Property Title.
Suit to cancel th deeds to his 1,200-acre
farm near Bennington, given by Colonel
James H. Pratt to his daughters, Mrs. Har
riet Belle Magee and Mrs. Margaret Louise
Pratt Olsson, waa filed In district court
Wednesday by the Omaha National bank,
which secured a Judgment against Colonel
Pratt shortly after his marriage to Mrs.
JulU Montgomery, who Is now seeking a
divorce from him.
The petition of the bank states the deeds
were dated June 17, 19t3, which waa the
day before the marriage to Mrs. Mont'
gomery, but they were not filed until Oe
tober 10, 10W, and September SO, 1907, re
specllvely. The bank asserts when It
loaned Colonel Piatt the money it sup
posed he was the owner In fee of this
property and that his conveyance of It
was fraudulent. It has already had an
attachment Issued and the property Is to
be sold by the sheriff under the attach
ment, but the petition says the two deeds
throw a cloud on the title to the farm
which will prevent Its sale. It asks the
deeds be set aside and Its claim declared to
be a first lien on the property.
The defendants are J. H. Pratt, Mrs. Julia
M. Pratt, Harriet Belle Magee, Henry W,
Magee, her husband; Margaret Louise Pratt

Ectigsi from Union Pacific to Make
Motor Cars in Omaha.
KAURI MAN MONEY BACKS II
of Motor Cars Has Created
a Demand that F.aclnslva
riant Will lie Estab
Ilarrtman has decided on another large
xtension of his Inter sts In Omaha the
s.allishment of an exclusive motor car
W. R. McKeen has resigned his posi-
lon of superintendent of motive power ana
machinery of the Vnlon raelflc to devote
is whole time to the manufacture of
motor cars In Omaha by the McKeen Motor
Car company, of which Mr. MeKeen will
bo president And general manager. The
resignation Is effective July 20 and Mr. Mc
Keen will be succeeded by C. B. Fuller, his
resent assists;. t, as superinlendenT of
motive power and machinery of tha Union
'aciflo. E. H. Harrlm.'in will be the finan
cial head of the new company.
The McKeen Motor Car company Is a
corporation organized under the laws of
New Jersey with a capital stock of fl.000.0no
and the business of the company will be
to manufacture gasoline motor csrs, light
ted passenger and freight cars and gaso
line locomotives for switching.
The McKeen Motor Car company will
build gasoline motor cars for the com
mercial world at large and we will begin
building additional cars at once, and at
Omaha," Said Mr. McKeen, when asked
where the new motor car shops were to be
located. "We have now at the Omaha
hops forty-one cars completed or under
construction and the first business of the
ew company will be to complete the cars
ow partially built. The arrangements for
the enlargement of the shops to provide
facilities for the future construction of
these cars on a large scale are not crys
tallised, but at present the cars will be
built in Omaha.
"The demand for these motor cars la
large end could not be met when the sht ps
were operated as a part of the Vnlon Pa
cific shops. We cannot confine the usage
f this wonderfully economical means of
transportation to one road, and con
sequently a separate corporation has been
formed to manufacture these cara upon a
On Orders of Harrlmaa.
Acting under Instructions of E. IT. Har-
rlman, president of the Union Pacific Rail
road company, Mr. McKeen two years tgo
began to experiment with gasoline motors
to propel passenger cars. The first motor
car had a fifty-horse power motor and It
was soon seen more power was needed. No.
with Ita light engine Is still doing business
and every car which has been built by
the Union Pacific has been a revenue pro
ducer, which Is more than can be said of
any similar cars ever built. The Westing
house company has a long line of these
experimental cars which were absolute fail
ures. Car No. 2 was then built with a 100
horse power motor and It did good service,
but the cars were crowded so heavily and
a trailer waa needed for baggage and ex
press that It was deemed advisable to put
In a 200-horse power engine. That Is the
size now in use and being Installed in the
new cara which are being built. These
cars have been sent to all parts of the
United States and everywhere they have
been a great success. Their greatest value
lies In the small fuel charge and because
they can be operated with fewer men than
regular train. They take the place of
a regular train on the branch lines.
Motor cars are not the only products
which will be turned out by the McKeen
Motor Car company. A gasoline locomo
tive for swltchlrjg purposes around private
plants, will alao be built. Railroads may
no longer switch cara around a private
manufacturing plant free of charge, nnd the
plant cannot afford to pay the switching
charge. ,To fill the want, a gasoline loco
motive will be built, which will be able to
handle cars around a plant. It Is also quite
probable lightweight, steel passenger
coaches and freight cars will be built by the
new company, as these cars are similar in
construction to the motor car.
A. L. Mohler, vice-president of the Union
Pacific, has given every aid to the building
of a successful gasoline motor car, and
no expense haa been spared to develop a
car which would be as perfect aa It was
possible to make one.
Railroad officials from all sections of the
country, have visited Omaha, with the ex
press object of seeing the motor cars, and
all have wondered at the perfection in con
structlon. The demand for these cars has
been such that there aeems to be little
doubt in the minds of the offlcera of the
new company that they can sell all the cara
rhey can manufacture.
Mr. Fuller, who succeeds Mr. McKeen
has been assistant to Mr. McKeen for some
time, and camo to the Union Pacific from
the Chicago Alton, where he held a posi
tion similar to the position he now takes
slth the Union Pacific.

MOHLER GLAD TO GET SEWER
Says Union Pacific Will Promptly Co

Contractors to 'Whom Work of Build

Waa t,ct Wants to Start
"Tha present Hard street sewer can well
bo likened to the ruins of ancient time,
and I was Just thinking of getting out
Mark Twain's soliloquy on the ruins of
Athens and reading It again aa I stand
here and view the ruins of the Izard street
sewer. I was very glad to learn from The
Bee that the council has decided to build
the sewer, which Is sorely needed, and
that the contract haa at last been awarded.
Tho Union Pacific Is more than anxloui
for that sewer and the minute the city be
gins construction work we are ready to
proceed. We have some large shops down
here and we will have larger ones, and an
adequate aewer is needed above all things."
In this way A. L. Mohler, vice president
and general manager of the Union Pacific
Railway company, approves the action of
the council, clubbed into ordering tho new
sewer by repeated messages from tha
mayor. In awarding the contract for the
construction of the large sewer for the
drainage of practically the whole of North
Omaha across the bottoms and the railroad
shop lands, to the river. The contract waa
awarded to J. J. Hanlghen, Omaha, and
work will be begun as soon as possible.
Must Walt on River.
"We cannot begin construction of the
sewer until the water In the river has
fallen some, but we ought to be able to
get at It by August 1," said E. P. Donahue,
manager for J. J. Hanlghen. "The first
work will be done at the mouth of the new
sewer on the river, for the reason that
there is always storm water on the low
lands that will have to be drained. The
city will have to construct the sewer for
about 100 feet at the mouth and then the
Union Paclfio people will construct the
next stretch across its holdings, a dl
tance of about 2.000 feet.
"It probably will take nearly all the rest
of the season for the Union Pacific to con
struct Its section of the sewer and we will
In all likelihood not get to work on the
main part of the city's section until next
season. The lower sections of the sewer
must be built first. The main section of
the sewer will be 8,100 feet long. We will
also build a small branch sewer about 1,500
foet long to give adequate outlet to the
present small sewer on Ixard street, with
which residents of the vicinity have made
The Izard street sewer will be ten and
twelve feet in diameter, while in some
places on the bottoms it will be sixteen
feet wide by seven and one-half feet deep
City Engineer Rosewater says the sewer
will be one of the largest built In Omaha
and that the contract awarded to Mr.
Hanlghen Is the largest single contract for
work of the kind ever let In this city.

estimation, one of the most Important pub

Medicines containing Mercury are often given to persons suffering with Contagious
Blood Poison, and so powerful is the action of this drug that it frequently removes
the symptoms in a short while, and shuts the disease up in the system to do greater
damage to the delicate internal members. When, however, the treatment is left off,
the disease always returns, and the patient finds that his health has been injured by
this powerful mineral, and he is often left with weak stomach, disturbed digestion,
mercurial rheumatism, etc. The action of S. S S. is entirely different It contains
no Mercury, nor any other harmful drug, but is made entirely of healing, cleansing
roots and herbs. It cures Contagious Iilood Poison by removing the virus from the
blood. It searches out every particle of the poison and does not leave the least trace
for future outbreaks. S. S. S., in addition to caring the disease, builds up and strength
ens every part of the body. Its fine tonic effects tone tip the stomach and digestion,
improve the appetite and regulate the entire system. Home treatment book containing
