Vnltcd Slates cltlsens are being turned
out today and the district court room of
Judge Sutton Is full of Swedes. Danes,
Russians. Italians. Roumanians, Sicilians
and Germans, with a sprinkling of Cana
dians and Irishmen. Not alt, alas, at
doing a quick change from foreign na
tionality to American, for many of the
fifty-eight are being "plucked" or
busted," to use a campus term, for
failure to pass an examination.
Walter F. Daly, assltant United States
attorney general, conducted the examina
tion In behalf of the federal government
and asked the candidates and their wit
nesses the numerous questions which Hie
government desires answered.
One of the first men in the witness chair
was Rev. M. M. Bronsgeest, professor of
French In Crelghton university. Mr.
Bronsgeest psssed the ordeal with flying
colors. He Is a native of Holland and was
born there fifty-two years ago.
"What are you doing here, father?" an
acquaintance asked him.
"Ik sou graag een Burger van de Vcree
nlgde Staten," he answered in purest Hol
landese. Daly's questions he. of course, answered
in English, which he speaks perfectly as
well as French, German, Spanish and
Latin, besides having a reading acquaint
ance with Hebrew and Sanskrit.
Out In the corridors there wss a verita
ble modern Babel. Olive-tinted Italians
chattered musically, while cheek by Jowl
with them were ruddy Germans emitting
harsh-sounding gutterals. Meek-seeming
Syrians and Scandinavians of every sort
rubbed shoulders, talking English and
their native tongue alternately.
"It's a pretty fair stack-up," declared
Mr. Daly as he began surveying the
throng, "but they won't all get through.
It's harder than It used to be, you know."
Some fell by the wayside because their
witnesses were absent; others had Incor
rectly prepared affidavits and a few were
not the sort of stuff who would make
good citizens In tho eyea of the govern
ment. Inability to comprehend the nature
of American Institutions was the barrier

STOLEN HARNESS RETURNS
Several Theories Regarding; Its Disap
pearance. One Being; It Was
Myron L. Learned Is again the possessor
of the set of harness stolen from the barn
at lils country place last week. Tho har
ness was found tucked under the scat of
a buggy' standing in the barn.
, There are three possibilities:
Number One Tho thief had an attack of
Number Two The thief feared detection
and prosecution and hoped by returning
the harness to allay activities to this end.
Number Three The harness was there
all the time and the barking of the dogs
was due to some other cause than the
presence of a burglar.
Had an alleged thief been arrested hW
lawyer would have probably further com
plicated the situation by arguing that it
had not been shown thefe ever was any
harness in the barn; that his client had a
perfect alibi and besides It waa his first
offense (this is stolen from "Ermlnle");
that the harness was defective and no
one In his senses would have taken it,
the said defendant being therefore probably
Insane; that another man once looked
covetously at the harness and ought to ba
In the dock Instead of the prisoner; that
a witness for the prosecution either did or
did not know a subpoena when he saw it
and besides Is suspected of being a clergy
man and a reformer and that Connor never
made any will anyhow.

gene Pralher of Russell, has received th
following letter, written by him when h
was dying in an Indian village hut, alone,
miles from any known person. The letter
was unsigned, and wss accompanied by
one from Benjamin F. Hill of Omaha,
whiia' explains how the letter cams into
his possession. Mr. Hill stales that while
stationed In Nulate, Alaska, in May, 130S,
that he was informed by Indians that they
had found the body In their summer fish
ing camp, and states he Informed th
I'n ted States commissioner at St. Michael,
but on account of the thaw at that time
the body could not be brought out, so
the commissioners directed it burled there.
The grave is located at Klah lakes. On

says, was sent to the commissioners and

Tho letter reads:
INDIAN VILLAGE, Yukon Flats. Dec.
JO, 1907. To Mis. Iniogene frather. Russell.
Ia.: Dear Sister 1 have reached the end
of my earthly career. 1 started to Nulate,
on the 1 ukon river. I got lost on the
Yukon Flats, frtre one of my feet and
am too weak to travel. I have been with
out food for a long time. The Indians
spend summer here flailing, but winter on
the river. 1 have a good house, a stove and
some few thing Ihe Indians left. I have
not suffered much, but part cf my foot
needs amputation. I leave all my property
to you and Horace Ureehy and Peter
Boyer. I leave mining interests In Nome
that I believe will prove valuable, namely,
a one-third Interest In the Hunter asso
ciation claim, a one-eighth interest in the
Hawkey association. It will cost about
IbO a year to do assessment work on these
claims, th ground is well worth it. I fa

White Lad Is Ihallrnavrd by Larger
Boy and Qnlrtly Tells t onne Jnp
Kid He (an Whip
See Tup Is a slant-eyed Japanese cook
In the kitchen of J. C. Huteson, Eighteenth
and Emmet streets, who never heard of
Richard Pierson Hobson and would not ap
peal to Choseo Koike If some white boy
tried to whip him.
Ordinarily See Tup Is a peaceful citizen
and Is such a distinct advantage over do
mestic help that Mr. and Mrs. Huteson are
moved with composition for him when he
docs get off the track. See Tup is about
as big as a good sized 11-year-old boy, but
with the secrets of cooking kept well in
his head, he made his-way from San Fran
cisco to Omaha by working on the rail
roads and he has a set of muscles which
would make a Japanese Juggler envious.
The muscles of most cooks aro not used
extensively, but See Yup's are in good con
dition. Mr. Huteson also has a son who has
enough Scotch in him not to be backward
about talking fight and also has a good
supply of Scottish cleverness. When a boy
about fifty pounds heavier than young
Huteson wanted to fight on the school
grounds, young Huteson begged the crowd
not to arrange for the bout under the
teacher'a eye, but agreed to retire to a
choice spot back of the Huteson home
where the fight could be pulled off to good
advantage and without the interference of
the school authorities.
The crowd which desired to see the fight
consisting of about 10U boys of all sizes,
some of them having taken sides and
others being merely innocent bystanders.
Boy Tarn C'ate Trick.
Reachlrg the Huteson home the boy
dodged in .to get on an old coat as the
fellow he was to whip or who was to whip
him had on old clothes.
The expectant crowd waited some time
and the boy did not return.
The boys began to look around the edge
of a building behind which they were hid

slant eyes hit on the boy with hi coat off.
Another second and See Yup had the
fellow down, pounding him up in good old
Irish fashion and most of the spectators
had fled. Several remained and of thoso
who stayed, two got slapped very promptly
for interfering with the combatants.
Explaining the circumstances, See Tup
told Mr. Huteson that is son had ap

about the ability of the people from

While the tower on the city hall and
the gla3tlcutuses on the cornices of the
city building still stand despite the strong
est wind Omaha ever had and the
declarations that they would tumblo In the
lirst high wlnd. the Goddess of Liberty
and the roof of tho building did not fare
as well. And no one ever thought of
condemning tho goddesB or the roof under
neath the figure.
Custodian Wahlstrom took Councilman
Bridges, chairman of tho committee on
public buildings, up on the roof of tho
city hall Monday morning and showed him
the result of tho Thursday storm. The
councilman was rurprlsed to find tho tower
and the dogs intact, but he nearly toppled
over In a faint when he discovered that
the Goddess of Liberty had lost her left
arm. Torn out by the roots, a jagged hole
under the shoulder Is left where the arm
once was. However, the councilman said
he was thankful that it was not the right,
arm that was lost, for the torch Is held
by tho right.
The damage to the allegorical figure will
not harm the hall in the least, but great
ratches of the si eel roof were torn off by
the wind and this damage must be repaired
at once. Orders to have the work done
immediately were given by the chairman -on
