Arrested for Second Time on Charge
of Threatening; to Kill.
R. W. Flood was again arrested yester
day for threatening to shoot Freda Ster
ling, a domestic employed In tha Goodrich
hotel. He arrived in the city yesterday
morning from Kansas City and went to the
place where the young woman Is employed.
He told her that unless she consented to
marry hint ha would kill her "and then
commit suicide. She escaped from him and
going to the police court swore out a
warrant for his arrest on the charge of
threatening to kill. When arrested Flood
had no weapon upon his person.
Flood's home Is at Llnneus, Mo., where
he Is an Insurance agent. It was at that
place he became acquainted with Miss
Sterling and became infatuated with her,
but the your.g woman did not return his
affections. He followed her here and on
September 23 was arrested on the same
charge as now lies against him. At that
time he was released on payment of a
small fine and the promise that he would
leav.; town and cease bothering the young
woman, remarking as he left the court
ruom: "I have learned my lesson, and
I will not bother her any more." He evi
dently was unable to keep away and pos
sibly may not escape so easily this time.

way, In payment for a suit of clothes. 'The
check, which was for 26, wss drawn on the
Council Bluffs Savings bank, signed
Charles B. Allen and made payable to
James Bedford. Solomon was suspicious
and declined to deliver the suit of clothes

check. Inquiry showed that the bank had
no account with Charles B. Allen.
Papers found on Bedford show that he was
released as late as October 2 from the
Cnlted States military prison at Fort Leav
enworth and that he was dishonorably dis
charged August 23, 1907, from the army, In

larger grounds at an sxpendltura of 100,000
was the decision, reached by tha Omaha
Rod and Gun club at a special meeting
held at the Crelghton Institute last night,
Ths Interest of the club in the proposi
tion waa shown by tha number who an
swered tha call of the president, John A.
Scott, the first floor audience room of
the institute being filled with enthusiastic
As a result of the deliberations and dls
ousslon which held the club fo more than
two hours it was decided to form a realty
corporation to acquire the new property
and hold It for the club, aa the latter cor
poration is hampered b an authorised
capital stock of only $10,000. More than
$?,000 worth of stock In the new holding
company was subscribed at the meeting
and arrangements were made for commit
tees to take up the work of soliciting the
additional amount necessary. It is ex
pected that the necessary amount of stock
will be subscribed within a short time, as
the membership of the club Is now larger
than at any time In Its history and Its
financial affairs are In a flourishing con
dition, as was shown by the report of the
treasurer, A. P. Whltmore, which wes
read laet night.
Mr. Scott addressed the club at some
length, explaining what had been done by
the president and directors In the way of
providing larger grounds, and with the
aid of a map pointed out the traots which
have already been secured either by op
tion, purchase or permanent lease, for the
Fifteen acres embracing Kast Omaha
park have already been serured and ne
gotiations are pending for the purchase
of additional tructs.

yearly dues of the club will be raised in
the near future. The matter was discussed
last night, but no action will be tuken un
til the annual meeting In February.
President Scott expressed himself as
more than pleased with the showing made
and expects the matter to bu pushed to
completion In a few months. Among other
features which are. . contemplated for the
coining year are a dancing pavilion and
bathing beach, both of which will bo ready
for use by next spring.
