Fred Brunlng. republican county commis
sioner, who denied being in collusion with
the democrats on the board, attended the
secret caucus of the republican members
and upon adjournment divulged every
thing that transpired at the caucus to Os
car J. Plckard, democratlo county com
missioner.
Mr. Brunlng, earlier in the day denied to
a reporter for The Bee that he was In a

also, earlier in the day, told a reporter for
The Bee that "we have an understanding
with Mr. Brunlng." It is supposed that this
'understanding" must have already been
In effect and contemplates on Mr. Brun
Ing's part disclosures to his democratic
confederates of alt the confidential rela
tions transpiring between the republican
members at any meetings or caucuses
prior as well as subsequent to the reor
ganisation of the board.
The secret caucus of republicans was
held in the commlsloners' room at the
court house yesterday afternoon. As soon
as it adjourned Mr. Brunlng went to the
Owl drug store at Slxxeentn and Harney
streets, where he unbosomed himself of all
the secrets to Mr. Plckard.
The other members of the board who par
ticipated ln the caucus observed the bond
to disclose nothing of what took place.
Only Three at the taacos.
The caucus was attended by Commis
sioners Kennard, Tralnor and Brunlng.
The commissioners talked over the chair
manship for an hour when Mr. Brunlng
emerged, put on his coat and started down
the street. Before he had walked a bait
block Commissioner Plckard fell into step,
though by prearranged signal and the
two went to the drug store.
"They wanted to nane the committees I
should appoint." Mr. Burning told Mr.
Plckard. the "they" meaning Commisalon-
ers Kennard and Trainor, "but I told thom
that there waa no use in being chairman if
I could not appoint my own committees. I
simply told them that I was 'standing pat,'
that I wanted to be chairman and that If
I waa re-elected I would treat the demo
crats with equal fairness to the republicans."
When reminded of the fact that If Com
missioners Kennard and Tralnor combined
their votes on Trainor he, Brunlng, would
have to look to the democrats for support,
Mr. Brunlng said that that made no dif
ference, he did not care who voted for him,
Just so he was elected.
KeaaajTd Backs Tralaor.
In tho caucus Commissioners Kennard and
Tralnor put it plainly to Commissioner
Brunlng that the chairmanship rightfully
should go to Mr. Tralnor this year, as he
had never had It, whereas Mr. Brunlng was
chairman once before. Mr. Brunlng. how
ever, declared that It made no difference
with him, that he wanted the chairman
ship thlsvear and that Mr. Tralnor could
have It next year.
Tbey then asked him about the commit
tees and pointed out that the republicans,
being ln the majority, should have the most
Important committees, though, of course.
maintaining that the democrats should not,
by any means, be ignored In the slightest
degree.
In reply to this Mr. Brunlng implied that
he would give the chairmanship of the
committee on roads and bridges to "Wckard.
and the chairmanship of the committee on
court house construction and on the county
hospital to Bedford, also democrat This
would leave the committees on the deten
tlon schools, charities, claims, judiciary and
such to the republican members.
Finally Commissioner Kennsrd, the retir
ing chairman, came out plainly and said:
"Mr. Brunlng, If you will concede to Mr.
Tralnor the chairmanship of some Import
ant committees as he asks, which Is no
more than fair In the event that he con
cedes to you the chairmanship of the whole,
I will vote for you for chairman."
"Well, I'll think It over and let you know
Monday," said Mr. Brunlng, with a smile.
and he left to keep his tryst with the dem
oeratic members.

OMAHA. Jan. .-To the Editor of The
Bee: The article which appeared In last
evening's Bee was In entire accordance
with the evidence produced at the trial of
George Von Haller, yet ft was not ln ac
cordance with later evidence which was
formally presented to Oovernor Sheldon by
the attorney who prosecuted Von Haller for
the state. That evidence was the dying
statement of a msn who was an eye witness
of the tragle murder of Rees. That stste
ment was sworn to by the man's wife and
man who waa present at the deathbed
of the man, who solemnly declared that it
was not Von Haller who fired the fatal
shot and battered the face and head of the
unfortunate Rees. I was present at the trial
of Von Haller, and felt then that the prin
cipal witness against him showed too In
tense a desire to convict him of the mur
der to make him a credible witness In
swearing away the life or liberty of his
friend. Tet I did not see how the jury
could have returned any other verdict than
the one It did return. Still, all of those
jurors who could be found a year ago In
this county signed a petition to the gov
ernor asking for an unconditional pardon
for Von Haller. Attorney Slabaugh, who
prosecuted him, Joined ln that petition and
eloquently pleaded for the pardon of the
unfortunate man, alleging that while he
prosecuted him with all his energy, be
lieving him guilty vpon the evidence, yet
he was fully persuaded now that Von Hal
ler was not gullty'of the murder of Rocs. I
also pleaded for him before the governor.
believing fully that it was not Von Haller
who did the fatal shooting. The governor
was not convinced fully at the time, nor
did he seem to be last week, or he would
have granted an unconditional pardon.
I write this statement ln Justice to Von
Haller, who Is coming to live among us. to
begin his life over, ln order that he may
he given a fair opportunity to make that
life a sobered, better life than the way
ward, reckless life which led him Into
trouble and shame. I am certain he will
make good, and to that end he will have
my friendship and help to the very fullest
extent. JOHN WILLIAMS.

FOUR FALSE FIRE ALARMS
All Tome In Less Than Half an Floor
and Supposed to Be Work of
Discharged Fireman.
An unidentified person, who Is thought to
be a discharged member of the fire depart
ment, amused himself early Saturday even
ing by turning ln false alarms from four
different places In the city. All the alarms
came through the fire boxes and no trace
has yet been found of the man who did
the work.
The four calls came within twenty mln
utes of each other. The first came from
Fourteenth and Capitol avenue at T:U
o'clock, the second from Seventh and Doug
las streets at 7:20 o'clock, the third was
from Ninth and Jones streets at 7:26 o'clock
and the fourth from Thirteenth and Jack'
son streets at 7:36 o'clock.
In addition to these calls there waa one
from 2211 Howard street shortly before 7
o'clock. This slarm was caused from some
bed clothing which caught fire, but which
waa extinguished before tne arrival of the
department.
An alarm from Sixteenth and Far nam
streets about 10:80 o'clock was found to
have resulted from a burning chimney at
the Henahaw hotel, from which no damage
resulted.
On account of the close proximity to
the Bur wood theater, however, the man
agement of the playhouse decided to bt
on the safe side and dismiss the sud
ence. The announcement was therefore
made from the stage that there waa
small fire ln the vicinity and that while
there was no immediate danger to tl.e
theater it waa deemed advisable for the
audience to take its time and leave the
building.
This was done without any excitement
or confusion and within a minute or two
the bouse was empty.

CAMPAIGN FOR NEW MEMBERS
Toanar Men's Christian Association la
Trylnar to Double Ita Mem
bership. "Double the membership" Is the slogan
that Is being used by the member of the
Toung Men's Christian association during
the campaign for new members that was
begun last 'week. The present enrollment
Is 2,515 and ' tho secretaries and directors
are anxious to Increase this sufficiently to
place Omaha above all her sister cities
as regards association membership.
With this end in view Membership Secre
tary William Parker has organised ten
committees of ten men each to work for
new members and every man and boy be
longing to the association is also expected
to secure a recruit.
That the local association ranks high
smong American city associations Is shown
by the recent campaign carried on ln
Denver to secure new members for the
association there, "Beat Omaha" was the
watchword and every effort was made to
get enough members to place Denver ahead
f Omaha in Importance among association
cities. It is not yet definitely known
whether or not the Denverltes succeeded In
their endeavor, but whether or not Omaha
will rank even higher than before If pres
ent plans carry and the local association
adds a healthy list rt new members to Its
tolls. The campaign Is to last for soma
time and Is being waged among both boys
and men. At the preaent time there arc
about 300 more members In the association
than there were at this time last year.
GETTING THE DOLLARS OUT
OF YOUR NEWSPAPER
You arc not getting all the value out of your newspaper that you should.
There is a hidden store of wealth in it you have overlooked.
Bee classified advertising pages are alive with money making, money
saving opportunities.
Begin taking advantage of them today. Read the Want Ads, the "Fors
Sale" Ads, the "Exchange Ads" while you are eating your breakfast.
You certainly have something you don't want that is worth real money
to some one else. This person talks to you through The Bee.
Or you may see something advertised that you intend buying during
the daysomething you find you can buy for half what you feared you
would have to pay,
There are other opportunities, too. Through these Want Ads you can
find the cook you have been looking forme seamstress, the gardener, the
chore boy.
Read them carefully. Get in touch with the people who can serve you
or whom you can serve. It will pay you well.
