POOL HALLS NOT REMOVED
No Immediate Action la Takes oa
Schools' Appeal by City
Thar will be no Immediate legislation
looking toward the prohibition of pool and
billiard halls In proximity to public or prl
vale schools In Omaha. Thla was declared
to be the sense of the city council in com
mittee of the whole, Monday afternoon.
Edgar A. Balrd, attorney for the Board
of Education, and Paul L. Martin, of the
Crelghton Law school, appeared before the
council Monday and requested the passage
of an ordinance prohibiting hall within 8X)
feet of any educational institution. Mr,
Balrd appeared at the requeat of the board
which had the matter under consideration
at its lsst meeting. They pointed out that
pool and billiard halls are evidently evil
In a sens for the reason that the law pro
hlblt children under 18 yeara of age from
entering them, and alao because the charter
gives the city council power to regulat
them. They declared that the halls exert
an evil Influence over the children and
young men: that they are loafing placea In
which the boye play 'hookey" from achool
or college, and that. Inasmuch aa the school
authorities expend Ifino.COO a year In educat
Ing he young people of omaha. that th
requeat of the board ought to have some
Councilman Zlmman, who made the mo,
tlon to the effect that no legislation re
gardlng pool and billiard halls be attempted
at thla time. In answering the attorney
representing the Board of Education and the
affiliated Crelghton colleges, called atten
tion to the fact that at the Toung Men
Christian association youngnnen are taught
how to play the game and that for tha
reason halls wherein the game Is playe
certainly cannot exert an evil Influence.

at the school which is being maintained in
the lower corridor for the benefit of of

to use the voting machines.
James' Allen, who has charge of the

a chance tc inform himself. While It is
primarily for election officers, any citlsen
who Is uncertain as to how to manipulate
the levers can get all the information he
wants by applying.
Many Inquiries have been received aa to
the methods of voting for the two amend

amendments were endorsed by all the
partlea and hence a straight party vote
records an affirmative votu on both amend

OSBORNE STOPS THE TEAM
County Jail Keeper and Sheriff
Bralley Have Harrow Escape
The presence of mind of Frank Osborne,
county Jailer, probably saved him and
Sheriff Bralley from serious Injury at
Lincoln Monday afternoon. They took two
men, John Cowers to the penitentiary and
Ashworth Hayes to the asylum. Aa they
were leaving the penitentiary on the way
back the hack driver closed the door
and was about to climb on the driver's
Beat when the team started to run, throw
ing him off into the mud and leaving the
two officers Imprisoned in the hack. They
wero approaching a sharp turn and were
going so fast the hack was in danger of
overturning. Osborne got one of the doors
open and climbed up thf side of the hack
to the seat. He guided the horses around
the turn safely and finally atopped them.
The driver was slightly hurt but neither
of the officers wa injured.

KAEBACH IS NEW MANAGER
To Hold Trade In Omaha Territory
Dealers in Mechanical Kubber
Good Kind Hoik Here
After attempting for a number of years
to hold territory In western Iowa and Ne
braska by maintaining houses In Chicago,
Minneapolis and St. Louis, the Diamond
Rubber company of Akron, O., has found
that "Omaha territory" cannot be advan
tageously handled from any point except
Omaha and will open a large branch house
In thia city.
Tlie location of the company's branch
will be at Thirteenth and Howard streets;
twenty to twenty-five men will bo em
ployed In the warehouse, three to (five kept
constantly "on the road," and Arthur
Karbach will be local manager.
W. E. Roby of Minneapolis, who is man
ager of the northwest territory for the
company, was in Omaha Monday and closed
the deal. lie expressed himself- as well
satisfied with the arrangement made In
Omaha, and announced that the company
would open in connection with the ware
house a large repair shop which would give
employment to a number. The company
has branches In Boston. New York, Phila
delphia, Buffalo, Chicago, Cleveland. De
troit, Minneapolis, Kansas City, St. Louis,
Denver, Oakland and San Francisco. The
capital stock of the Diamond Rubber com
pany is $6,000,000. and It Is one of the two I
largest Independent rubber companies In the
country. The line Includes all kinds of
tires, mechanical rubber goods, fire hose,
belting, and the hard rubber goods from a
fountain pen up.
BlaT Growth of Business.
"The increased business of the country
In the last ten years is reflected In our
growth." said Mr. Roby at the Commercial
club, "Ten years ago we had a capital
stock of 1X0,000. The 16.000,000 capital to
day tells our story, and we have furnished
work for ao many people that we are cred
ited with Increasing the population of
Akron something like 30 or to per cent.
"I say this not because the company
which I represent has made such a record,
but because I believe others have shared
a aimilar prosperity and made a similar '
growth during the ten years past."
