and Mr. Buckingham showing very finely.
Miss Hobson has an apparent bent for light
comedy, and by her natural manner and
charming poise proved her taient. The other
plays were also well presented, and the
young folks taking part showed consid

who waa to the first of the sketches, Is a
very graceful and confident young woman,

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Police Board Heart Charge Against
an Albright Saloon Keeper.
SELLING TO MINORS THE CHARGE
A. ' W. ftmlth, aa llllaola Central
Svrltrhmaa Living In t'oaaeil
Staffs, Mas Both Legs
The Board of Fir" and PolP-e commission
ers met last night and held a formal trial,
In which James Kracek of Albright, who
runs a saloon at the corner of Railroad
avenue and Polk street, was charged with
selling liquor to Charles Whaley, a minor.
On the conclusion of the evidence the
board took the case under advisement and
ordered the chief of police to close up the
place pending a decision by the board.
The evidence, was to the effect that the
saloonkeeper had knowingly sold the liquor
and had on several occasions heen warned
by the mother of tha boy and forbidden . to-
sell him any liquor. The proprietor made
no denial of the matter; but mentioned
some extenuating cl.cumstances and prom
ised reform. The board expressed no Judg
ment In this case, but again stated em
phatically that selling to minors would not
be tolerated under any circumstances and
that children under age must be kept out
of saloons. The board expressed a desire
that thla ruling be made aa public as pos
sible so that no one need plead Ignorance.
Tno police will become more vigilant In
the enforcement of this phase of the 81 o
Rtolea Property necoTered.
The burglary caeo by which L. C. Glb
ron lost nearly tXO worth of Jewelry Tues
day, December 1. waa cleared up last night
by the recovery of most of the property
and the arrest of George Gavin of Des
Moines by the Omaha police. The prop
erty consisted of a garnet necklace, a
woman's gold watch, a bracelet, eight
rings and a coat and vest. In an Indefinite
way suspicion pointed to a certain man ad
dicted to the u.se of narcotic drugs and
It was felt that he would pawn the prop
erty when he desired money for the drug.
Yesterday four of the rings were discov
ered In Omaha pawnshops and finally the
net closed on the prisoner. Captain J. C.
Trouton went to Omaha for him last even
ing, but left tho man In Omaha. Mrs. L.
C. Gibson Identified her Jewelry.
K. K. Wells Dead.
E. K. Wells, a pioneer of Bouth Omaha,
an old soldier of the First regiment of
Minnesota volunteers In the civil war, died
i t Hot Springs, S. D., where he was In the
Soldier's home, Wednesday. The body waa
burled yesterday In the National cemetery
at the home with military honors. A fun
eral service will be conducted Sunday
afternoon at the home of his daughter,
Mrs. O. J. Winegard. He has another
daughter In the city. Mrs. Ralph Pearl.
His son. Ed Wells, la in the employ of
E. K. Wella was the first city clerk of
South Omaha and waa for years a justice
of the peace. In the army he was wounded
before Gettysburg and was cared for
several months In the military hospitals.
He had been for some time an inmate of
the Soldier's home at Hot Springs.
Admits Wife Desertion.
. Philip Madden has confessed to a charge
of ' deserting his young wife in Chicago.
He and John Hogan were arrested after a
long chase and some shooting by Chief
John Biiggs Wednesday evening. The
chief arrested them on suspicion, having
really nothing against the men except their
bungling attempts to escape notice. They
were given such a searching at the station
that Madden became frightened and broke
down. He said he had a trifling quarrel
with his wife and had pulled up and left
Chicago with Hogan, persuaded by the
latter'a glowing account of the money they
oould make and the good times in San
Francisco. He got as far as Denvesrt
where he repented and sent HO back to hla
wife and started on his return. He begged
the chief to let him write to hla wife and
In this letter he plead for forgiveness and
promised any kind of penance. Before
the chief he sobbed over the story of his
treatment of his wife end prayed the of
ficer to keep him until word came from
her. The other man seemed almost as
much affected, but said he waa guilty of
no crime, and had asked his friend to go
with him only aa a companion.
Ead af Slarqaardt Episode.
Cenn Fujlwara and Hope Marquardt
were releaaed yesterday by the South
Omaha police and no prosecutions are
likely to follow In their checkered ca
reers. The girl waa under the Jurisdic
tion of the Juvenile court and was re
leased to her mother's care, and will not
be further charged unless the court sees
fit. The Jap boy waa releaaed for want
of prosecution. The mother would not
file a complaint against him. He dis
appeared at once to take care of himself.
The husband, Roy Marquardt. agreed not
to molest his wife, who wished to live
apart from him.

ed into contracts with the manufacturers for '2:200 Pianos to be manufactured and shipped to us during the year of 100S.

"A Little Indian Trading Village."
OMAHA. Dec. 4. To the Kdltor of The
Ilee: The Bee said Friday morning that
when Kev. H. W. Kuhns organized tho
Lutheran church here in 1858, Omaha was
"a little Indian trading village." This Is
a mistake. Omaha at that time was quite
a town. It was about four years of age.
I was the nominal head of the Herndon
House Hotel company, which waa being
completed. It waa a fine building for
that early day. The better part of It Is now
the Union Pacific headquarters building.
As a matter of fact, Omaha was never a
ilule Indian trading village at all, except
when White Cow, the famous orator of the
Omahas, would come down from the Black
bird hills reservation on my invitation with
nis family to pay mo a visit. He did some
trading then by swapping short orations
.or plugs of tobacco.
