These men were chosen Monday after
noon to constitute the grand jury for the
October term of court which began Mon
day. Owing to the absence of several of
the panel' and the disqualifications of
others owing to age, ten talesmen were
called by Sheriff Brailey and from these
the last six of the list were chosen. The
grand jury will begin Its sessions Tuesday
morning with Charles C. George of Dundee
In his charge to the Jury Judge Sears
treated of the subjects which have been
referred to previous grand Juries, the red
fight district, houses of ill fame In the resi
dence district,- pawn shops, second hand
stores and the general enforcement of law
In the community. In the section relating
to the social evil he did not charge the jury
to indict owners of property in the red
light district, but advocated Indicting
those who operated such houses in the
residence parts of the city. He repeated
his advocacy of a law gllvng the city the
right to regulate the social evil.
After reading his formal charge Judge
Boars spoke extemporaneously to the jurors
on several subjects touched on only lightly
In the written document.
"During the May term of court," he said,
"I was struck with the number of bur
glaries that came under the notice of the
court. In the examination of one jury fif
teen men were questioned and nine of
them had suffered loss from burglary and
there were thirteen separate burglaries
represented by the nine men. With other
Juries the record was almost the same.
Last year there was In the city a large
number of men practically owning women
end bringing them here from France and
elsewhere. They owned their women as
much as If they had been slaves. Owing to
the vigorous denunciation of them many
have left town. I am informed that such
crimes as robbery from the person by the
women has become much less frequent.
War an Social Evil.
"You shoul advise yourselves as to the
presence of these men and find out if there
Is any way of remedying matters. This
class of men are demoralizing to young
men who come in contact with them, more
so than the women they'malntain. If you
find any of them yri V'ild ItHlcr them,
"For years auction store's' for the gulling
of people from out' lni the state have been
operated in Omaha. It would do no harm
to Inquire into them. Second hand stores
and pawn shops have been buying goods
they must have known were stolen, thereby
encouraging men of the class I have men
tioned to commit crime, to rob homes. Tou
should investigate these Institutions.
"I think eventually, we will arrive at the
point where there will be strict enforce
ment of the law."
The formal charge to the Jury waa as
ears' Written Charge.
Gentlemen of the Grand Jury Vou hav
ing been chosen as grand jurymen for
the present term. It becomes ray duty,
as the presiding judge of this branch of
the court, to Instruct you as to your
powers and duties. The oath you nave
taken Is one that places you on a higher
and different plane than the one you oc
cupied prior to its naving been taken,
and places you with those who are
charged with the oversight and the well
being of the public organization and the
citizenship of the county, and even above
the others so cnarged witu tne weu-Deing
end safety. In this, that you are charged
as a duty with Inquiring whether or not
the others are performing their duty In
their several capacities.
It Is your duty to Inquire as to the con
dition of such public places as county
snd city Jails end poor farms, and as to
the condition or inmates tnereor, ana
likewise such other places as have In
mates detained therein by order of any
of the courts. As to such places, It Is
your duty, after advising yourselves or
conditions, to report to the court as to
such conditions snd If discipline Is being
maintained and provided rules enforced.
You will at all times keep In mind the
oaths taken by yourselves severally and
vour foreman, and It Is the duty of the
court at this time to admonish you that
you are to keep as sacredly secret uie
counsel of the state, your own and your
fellow members, unles you are called on
In a court of justice to make disclosures;
and, likewise, It Is your duty to main
tain secrecy as to what matters sre being
considered with a view of possible In
dictment following and what progress Is
being made in such Inquiries.
The county attorney or his deputies are
privileged t oappear before you at all
times for the purpose of giving Informa
tion regarding any matter cognizable be
fore you, giving advice upon any subject
you may require, and. If either he or you
desire, he shall interrogate wltnessen be
fore you; no other person shall be In
your room while you are expressing your
views or while giving your votes upon
any matter. The clerk of the court will
at the request of the grand jury or of the
county attorney cause subpoenas to Is
sue for such witnesses as may be desired.
No one Is to announce the fact of an In
dictment having been found until the In
rilctment is filed and the case docketed.
As I have brought to the attention of

of law that should obtain In law-abiding
communities. Not that the people of thla
county are worse than otner communities
of like population, but there has grown up
an Idea that there may be statute Jaws,
and that officers whose eole and only
duty it Is to be the law-enforcing arm
may In their aiscreiion enrorce uiem or
not. There is no such discretion. Every
such countenancing Is an Ignoring of law,
and Its defiance. Eventually it must
cease. There Is no weight of duty on of
ficials charged to enforce the law. If at

It Is sn Indictable offense In this state to
maintain houses of prostitution and asslg

that there lias been consent or those In

your duty to Indict all such offenders as
nave had anything to do with such main
tenance, because It la your legal duty so
to do. However, I will not place a greater
burden upon you than has been assumed
by those charged with law enforcement

duty in that regard.
As a further aid I hand you herewith
the reports of the two last grand Juries
and commend to your attention the topics
there given prominence, with the sugges

there stated, and particularly as to the
presence of men with their women; of
the unlawful selling of liquor In houses
of prostitution; the conduct of loan, second-hand
and auction stores; assignation
houses In the residence district of Omaha,
or 8outh Omaha; the selling of harmful
drugs; the display of pictures, or shows,
tending to heroize crime before young per
sons. In this connection you are In
structed that it Is unlawful to have for
the display to children pictures of an Im
moral or lustful nature, or of a tendency
to display criminal deeds to them.

a democrat and a populist, with the hope
of (retting a larger total vote than Berge.
Had he failed, however. It was set that
Dahlman would be the democratic nom
inee. He did not fail. Berge has done
exactly as the Bryan schemers Intended
for him to do.
Just what Mr. Berge will do when he
wgkes up to the fact that he was worked
by Bryan's chief advisers is a matter the
future will tell. That it waa on the
carda he could not get the democratic
nomination his best friends know.
Deal Is a itepeater.
Two years ago the same kind of a pack
age was handed to him by the same gang
that harpooned him this time. On that
occasion he was double crossed In the In
terest of Mr. Shallenberger. The populist
state convention offered him the nomina
tion on the populist ticket. The delegates
to that convention did more. They knelt
down in front of him and on their knees,
gray bearded genuine populists, reformer
who had fought for Its policies for years,
cried in vain to get him to make the race.
But Berge refused. He had no thought
that Bryan knew anything of the double
cross he received. He believed in Bryan
and the things for which Bryan stood and
he declined the nomination. He declined
In the interest of Mr. Shallenberger.
He Is permitted to again go against a
brace game. He is again forced to de
cline a nomination which he honestly
earned and which he took oath to accept.
As a matter of fact the entire democratic
organization which holds forth at the Lln
cold hotel Is In a bad way. Those in
charge have now to convince Mr. Shallen
berger that he will not bo sacrificed In
the Interest of Mr. Bryan, as well as to
convince George W. Berge that he has not
been dealt a stacked hand.
The fact that Mr. Bryan had his brother-in-law,
Tom Allen, again placed at the
head of the committee over the protest
of many members of the committee and
a large part of the rank and file, is a

better than Mr. Bryan's own brother-in-law.
Those who opposed Allen had a valid
reason for so doing. They could not figure
how Bryan could discuss the publicity
of campaign contributions as long as the
115.000 Tom Tibbies told about being brought
from Wall street to promote Mr. LVyan's
senatorial candidacy remained unaccounted
for. Mayor Dahlman said the money was
spent In the Interest of Mr. Berge, candi
date for governor. Berge said he never
knew about it and the result of the election
bears him out.
Progressive democrats who believe In
the Roosevelt policies fall to see how Mr.
Bryan can Justify the continuance of Tom
Allen at the head of his campaign com

ticket are to be sacrificed.

Bryan's Nebraska Tonr.
W. J. Bryan will tour Nebraska October
13, 14 and 15, speaking from the rear end
of a special train. The democratic state
committee la afraid of the work done by
the Taft special and Mr. Bryan has ar
ranged with his national committee to
look after his fences In his home state.
Tom Allen la now at work on the itinerary.
Allen Mixes In Idaho Row.
Tom Allen, brother-in-law to Mr. Bryan,
has returned from a harmony trip to
Boise, Idaho. Mr. Allen went there as tha
special messenger for his brother-in-law to
try and settle the democratic squabble In
that state. So secret was lie in his move
ments that he registered under an assumed
name and hi Identity did r.ot become
known until a member, of the democratic
state committee of Idaho asked for hint
at the hotel and Allen had to make himself
known In order to carry out the Instruc
tions of his brother-in-law. This is . the
story brought to Lincoln In a Poise paper,
which reached here today. Mr. Allen left
this morning for Omaha, presumably to
give some Instructions to Mr. Bryan's
chief lieutenant, Mayor Dahlman. Another
trip to Wall 8treet Is now predicted.

A Blare to Coffee
Many persons do not realise that coffee
drinking may become a powerful, enslav
They are not aware that coffee contains
a drug caffeine which ought never to
be taken into the system except for cer
tain diseases and then only when pre
scribed by the doctor.
The coffee hsblt grows on most users
and Is more harmful to some than others.
But a drug that acts upon the heart and
nerves In the way caffeine does. Is not
without greater or less harm to all wno.
"I'Xir thirty years," writes a. Wash,
housewife, "I have been a steady coffee
drinker. I wanted It at every meal.
"But I would have sick headache moat
of the day, and throw up my -food. I
really suffered awfully from coffee, yet
thought I never could stop It.
"Then I heard how goud Postum was
for such cases, and began to use It. At
first I did nut care for Poatuin. I felt
sleepy and had headache. 1 soon found
that this was because of the hold coffue
had on me, for In about three duys after
I quit coffee and brgan to use 1'onluin the
headache left me, had do more nervous
ness and palpitation In about a week 1
felt like a new woman.
"I have used I'ualuni three years and
when It Is made according to directions
(boiled 15 minutes) it Is as pleasant
as coffee and don't hurt anyone. I ought
to know for I was as bad off as anyuns
Is likely to get from toffee drinking.
Now I am well."
