Censuring officials of both Omaha and I
South Omaha for alleged failure to uphold j
the laws and those of the latter city with
"gross neglect of the Interests of the
people," commending the police department
of the city of Omaha, and making a long
list of recommendations, the county grand
Jury has finished Its labors and handed
In its report to Judge Willis (t. SAara on
Friday morning. The Jury has been In
session since October 5, and during that
lime returned 141 Indictments, Involving
During Its session of two months, the
grand jury Investigated affairs In the two
cities Omaha and South Omaha the
smaller towns In the county and the county
at large. County Institutions, such as the
Jail, hospital and the detention home, were
visited and recommendations made where
changes are deemed best.
It commends the work being done at the
detention home and urges the erection of
buildings on the new site. It also com
mends the work of the Juvenile court and
expresses the hope that the legislature will
not attempt to repeal the law. In the es
tablishment of a Joint workheuse for crim
inals of the county and city ft agrees with
the views of XorTuer' grand Jury. Cau
tion Is a J vised In the building of the new
court house. The attention of
riff Is called to saloons In the
town. J Benson, uenmngion, i-iKimrn,

Passing on to Omaha city affairs the
gi-Hnd jury In Its report says:
Wo regret to report that we find men
holding positions high In authority. Includ
ing the mayor of our city, who, In many
Instances, wholly disregard their oath of
office: that they make only a feeble or no
attempt to enforce laws and frankly admit
that they In reality are not honestly and
earnestly serving the people.
One Indictment only against a city offi
cial was returned.
The report says that the Jurors are con
vinced that there has been an Improve
ment in the red light district and that
there are fewer prostitutes. It gives credit
for this condition to the Board of Fire and
Police Commissioner! for Its orders to cloee
the Arcade and cribs.. It believes, however,
that soma of the prostitutes have merely
moved to other locations, and It recom
mends that the board order their removal
from the wholesale and retail districts. It
decries the establishment of a proscribed
district and the legalizing by the legisla
ture of prostitution.
Investigation showed that 1"0 persons,
mostly women, are holders of government
permits to sell liquor, but they have no
city permits. This the Jury" censures and
gives as a reason for the condition that
the dealers In liquor a.-, afraid of the fed
eral government and not of the city.
o Chnnse Here.
The report says:
"The salo of liquor and the control of
prostitution should remain in a commlsion
slmlllar to the present Board of Fire and
Tollce Commissioners and that the com
missioners should ho appointed by the
governor, not the mayor, for, the greater
the honor and the Integrity of the appoin
tive power, the better nnd more capable the
appointee will be."
The Jury repotted finding no change In
the manner of conducting the business in
pawnshops and second-hand stores, but no
recommendation was made. The Jurors In
their report merely stated that they be
lieved It was customary for dealers to
buy stolen property with full knowledge
that the proporty had been stolen, thus
encouraging petty thelvlng.
The Jurors sny they are convinced that
"many Incompetent and inexperienced In
spectors for public work In Omaha, South
Omaha and Douglas county protect much
nore carefully the Interest of the con
tractor than the municipality by whom they
are employed. The Jury also found that
few public officials have read the laws of
the state governing cities, counties or vil
lages and that often their oath of office
Is wholly disregarded.
Some Special Points.
The jury's report concludes with "calling
attention to" these statements, under the
head of special mints:
First The Illegal sale of rocalne and
other harmful drugs, especially by drug
stores in the redllght district.
Second The display and sale of postal
cards Hnd literature most suggestive unci
Immoral In character in some of the hook
and stationery stores in Omuha and South
Third The sale of tobacco or cigarette
packages In some Omaha und South omnha
stores containing most obscene and vulgar
Fourth Many fortune tellers and clair
voyants are still plying their trade. They
are impostcrs and should not be permitted
to do business In this county, and laws
should be enacted to remove them.
Fifth We recommend that the legislature
pass a law regulating the practice of quack
doctors and that an effort be made .to rid
this community of these Impostors.
Sixth We find that many young boys
and girls are allowed to run automobiles.
We recommend that the ordinances regulat
ing the speed of automobiles and motor
cycles be strictly enforced, also that the
city council pass an ordinance prohibiting
the running of automobiles and motor
cycles by children. This should be done for
the safety of the public.
Seventh We condemn the giving of
worthless or "straw" bonds In connection
with appeals from police courts, and recom
mend that our police Judges exercise
greater care In the taking of bonds, also
that the collection of forfeited bonds be
enforced according to law.
The mayor, all members of the council
except one, the city clerk, city treasurer,
chlet of police, police officers, a lew city
employes, also several citizens, were. Ques
tioned with reference to public matters In
bunt h Umaha.
We regret to report that we found evi
dence of graft on the part of some of the
members of the present council, one mem
ber being Indicted tor soliciting and ac
cepting bribe money.
After Iho present mayor and council
were elected the mayor named men to fill
the appointive offices. Before the appoint
ments were confirmed by tho council, sev
eral of the appointees were approached and
asked by one Genrge Dunscomb to pay

It was one of the stipulations in this purchase that we withhold the brnml name

This maker could not afford to have his identity known in any way, for the high

out, and ask $1.50, $2.00 and $2.50 for them.
He even went so far as to remove the label from every single shirt. There's hun
dreds of patterns to select from every shirt a new pattern every size from 14 to

A WONDERFUL CURE
M When mr little boy was six weeks
Id an eraptlon broke out on his face.
l too- mm to a aoo-
tor and got ointment
and medicine but his
face kept on getting
worse until it got so
bad that no one oould
i look at him. Bis
whole face was one
crust and must have
been Terr painful.
Us scratched clar and
night until his face
some timet looked like
a taw piece of meat.
1 1 was nearly insane
with his scratching
day and night. Then I took him to
all the best pecialUta In skin diseases
but they oould not do much for him.
He so mediae screamed with pain
when I put en the sJt they gare me.
"Wham he was two year old the
twwema got on hla arms and leg so
that 1 had to keep them bandaged up
and I made glove for his hands so the
nails oould not poison him worse. We
could not get a night' sleep in month
and mr husband and I were all broken
up. fben my mother asked why I
did not give up the doctor and try
Cutioura. So I got a set and ha felt
relieved the first time I used them,
the Cutioura Ointment felt so cool.
He used to wake up and ask for Cuti
cura to be put oa when he Itched so
badly that he could not sleep, and he
would say, 'Oh! Mama, that make
my sore feel so good I' - 1 gave the
Cutioura Remedies a good trial and
gradually the oosema nealed all up
and now he U a well a any other chil
dren. He la now seven year old and
the cure ha lasted two months, so I
think It will never return. I can't
tell you how glad I am that Cutioura
Ud such wonderful work in our case
and I shall recommend It everywhere.

The attention of the grand jury was also
called to numerous Instances where former
Mayor Thomas Hoctor and the members
of the council during his administration
let contracts for the city of South Omaha
In which most questionable and irregular
met nods were used.
Evidence showed that the taxpayers and
citizens were not honestly and fulrly repre
sented In connection with the new city
hall and Jail, from the time of the purchase
of the land until the completion of tho
Kvldence also showed that former cltv

delays, but we believe that most of the di'.
lays have been caused by mistakes and in ,
competency of engineers, by gross negli
gence of former Mayor Thomas Hoctor and !
the council during his administration, and '
by willful and Intentional neglect by the 1
contractors. The present mayor, Frank I
Koutsky, and the members of his council i
although elected to office about eight 1
months '.ago, knew practically nothing I
about these contracts. Members of the I
present finance committee knew verv little
about the city funds. One member did nut I
know whether the city had voted IhiO.ono ur i

whether all or any part of the money was
Our attention was called to so many Ir
regularities on the part of officials that we
are forced to the conclusion that the tax
payers and citizens of South Omaha have
been dishonestly dealt with and have been
grossly and unjustly treated, and that
through ignorance, incoinpetencv and dis
honesty many thousands of dollars were
spent by the former administration without
getting value received.
W are also convinced that through Ig
norance and Incompetency on the part of
a majority of the memters of the present
council the property owners of South
Omaha are now losing, and will continue
to lose, while such men are in office, thou
sands of dollars annually.
We tielleve the Irregularities In connec
tion with the conduct of South Omaha city
officials during the former and present ad
ministrations, to which our Attention has
been called, and which It has been impos
sible for us to investigate, Justify the
special attention of the next grand Jury,
charged with inquiring Into the conduct of
South Omaha officials and beginning; with
the first official acts of the former administration.
Much testimony was given showing the
crimes that hud been committed in the pool
halls on N street, between Twenty-sixth
and Twenty-seventh streets, and the low
and criminal character of many of the peo
ple about these halls. W e believe mat
these halls and nil other places harboring
leople of similar character should be closed.
Ve recommend that the Fire nnd Police
hoard issue orders governing prostitution
nd ih Uleeal sale of ouor similar lo or.
ders recommended covering these matters
Ontside of Omaha nnd Month Omaha.
Some time was spent In questioning
councllmen or trustees of nil towns In this
county outside of Omaha and S'liith
Omaha. Certain saloon keepers in lien
son. Florence. Bennington. e:ikhorn and
11 lard were found lo tie selling liquor in
violation of law.
Most of the officials questionea. Homing
office In these towns, admitted they h id
never read tho law governing such towns
and knew only from hearsay what their
duties were in their official capacity. Of
ficials and business men from Valley nnd
Waterloo testified that these towns were
doing as much business and that the towns
were better off in many respects now
than before the saloons were closed ubout
one year ago.
In conclusion, we wish to say that about
the time the present grand jury met, we
aro advised that opium joints and Douglas
street auction houses closed; t lie Illegal
Kale of liquor in many places rtoppd;
houses and flats In tho retail and down
town residence district, formerly oc . upied
by prostitutes, became boarding houses for
working' trirls: plays and pictures exhib
ited in questionable theaters In Omaha
and South Omaha improved; suggestive
and obscene postal cards disappeared from
view in some Omaha and South Omaha
stores, and other unmistakable evidences
of fear of the grand jury were h wn.
We recommend to citizens inier.sted in
good government and who desire to appear
or place evidence before a grand Jury, lo
secure their evidence before the grand
Jury meets and not while it Is In session.
This evidence should be secured by and
testified to before the grand Jury, by at
least two witnesses, and In every Instance
the full names of offenders, the exact lo
cation by street numbers where offenses
are committed, Hnd other specific informa
tion should be gathered. .
(irand Juries cannot Indict unless pood
evidence, furnished by competent wit
nesses, is placed before them. Citizens In
terested In geod government and law
obedience, car. rr.k" the services of a
grand Jury valuable to a community by
rendering it such assistance.
