Electrical show next spring is now an
assured fact. He says he received a num

show and that from all appearances now
there will not be room for any exhibitors
other than those who deal In electrical sup
plies. Last year considerable space was
taken up with exhibitors of merchandise
of various sorts. The dates for the elec
trical show have been set for May 8 to 15.
I,ast year the show ran but six days, but
it has been decided to keep it open nine
days this year.
Another Small-bora Crook Another con

was pulled off successfully Monday morn

one who victimized Mallinson. Ordering
two birthday cakes by telephone Monday
morning from the bakery at 2406 Cuming
street, the stranger had them delivered by
a 14-year-old girl, Ethel Johnson, saying he
would pay for them on delivery at his
home, 2352 Cuming street, and instructing
the baker to send change for a $20 bill with
the cakes. When the girl delivered the
cakes, the stranger, who gives his name as
Johnson, took both cakea and money and
has not been seen since. He left the girl
at the door, waiting for the $20 bill. The
police were notified and are making every
effort to apprehend the men before more
shopkeepers are robbed.
The Connor will case is post iwinetl to
March 1, to awult the return of Bishop
At 2 o'clock Monday afternoon Judge
lieslie announced a derision granting the
continuance. He was willing to allow the
attorneys' the alternative of nun-t ing us to
what Bishop IScanncll will testify to when
he returns, but the counsel were apparently
not able to agree. C. J. Smyth stuted that
they expected to have the dt'ioaltlon of
Bishop 8cannell taken while he is In Ire
land, and thus shorten he delay. Attorney
Kngllsh, for tho heirs. Insisted that If a

grant further time. If necessary. So tho

ing depending on the movements of Bishop
When the case came up before Judge
Leslie of the county court Monday
morning. Attorney Smyth, for the trus
tees, give the case a new twist by a mo
tion to postpone the hearing until the first
of March with the purpose of securing the
testimony of Bishop Richard Bi-annel upon
a vital point. Attorney English for the
heirs, stoutly resisted, and Judge Leslie
took the motion under advisement until
Says Bishops Will Deny It.
Smyth declared In making his motion
thai Bishop Scannell will testify th:it Con
nor never swore at him and that the oc
casion when Connor did get angry at him
was several years ago, long previous to
the drawing of the will, May 15, last year.
The point Is regarded as most Important.
If, as several witnesses have declared,
Connor showed anger at the bishop subse
quent to the drawing of the will tho in
ference that he destroyed the document
gaina strength, It was admitted by Attor
ney B. P. Smith in arguing tho motion, ho
going on to say that the court ought to
hear testimony which will show the con
traiy. "Bishop Scannell knew what the evidence
would show," declared' Attorney English,
"for I sent for him and told him about It
In my own office. If he, who Is the party
principally Interested In tho probating ot
the alleged will, choso to go away know
ing this, it seems to me that the attorneys
for the proponents are asking a good deal.
In fact, the bishop said to me that he was
going to Rome and we could fight the thing
out among ousclves. I had told him what
bearing this case would develop and told
him specifically what would appear. There
Is every reason to believe and I don't think
counsel for the other side will deny that
Bishop Scannell told them the substance,
of my conversation with them."
Smith Deprecates Allusion.
Attorney Smith next arose and deprecated
the allusion to the bishop as being the per
son chiefly Interested. The bishop Is the
chairman pf the board ot trustees named
by Connor to administer the $100,000 be
queathed for parochial schools. Smith went
on to reflect on the testimony which estab
lished the conversation as being after the
drawing of the will saying, "We could not
know that the data would be so nicely
Argument over tho motion was the prin
cipal business of the morning session.
Pending Judge Leslie's -ruling the respon
dents began the Introduction bf evidence.
A good lead of the testimony for the heirs
has not already been brought out by tho wi
nesscs called by the lawyers for the
trustees. Captain Mostyn was first called
and told of searching vainly for the will
after Connor's death.
Mrs. D. J. Lamb had been called again
as the last witness for the proponents.
One question asked her was about the age
of her aon, Vincent. The witness could
not remember the year of birth at tho time,
partly was because she was temporarily
confused. Her own explanation was: "Well,
I have five or six children and I can't
always tell exactly."
Topplelon avenue, and hcn St. refer was
artolsned In police court Monday morning,
a number of witnesses. Including the little
girls and Fred Schatnel of tho city treas
urer's office, apprsred to testify against
the man. Judge Crawford gave him tho
extreme penalty, as this is the second time
he has been arrested on the same charge.
W. S. BALDUFF IN BANKRUPTCY
Veteran Caterer Admits to C reditors
lie la t nable to Meet Ilia
William S. Balduff, for twenty years a
confectioner and caterer, with an exten
sive establishment at ir20 Farnam street,
was forced Into bankruptcy by creditors
having claims rf $1,398.08, Monday, the
petition being filed in t'nlted States dis
trict court. Judge Munger nt once ap
pointed Grant 8. Cobb, mannger of the
establishment, receiver. Mr. Cobb at once
furnished bond for $7,500, the amount re
quired by the court.
The creditors filing the petition through
their attorney, I It. Gradly, are Eggerss
O'Flynn company, box manufacturers and
printers; the Omaha Towel Supply com
pany, and William I Masterman, dealer
in tens and coffee.
Attached to the petition was a letter
addressed to tho three creditors written by
W. S. Bnlduff and dated January 31, In
which he says:
However much I regret the necessity rf
my doing so, I take this means of Inform
ing you that I am unable to pay my debts
and therefore willing. If so desired by my
creditors, tm be adjudged a bankrupt on
that ground. W. S. BALDLFF.
The creditors separately have the follow
ing claims against the Balduff house, all
being contracted during 1908 and the first
month nf 1909. Eggerss-O'Flyng company,
$1,085; W. L. Masterman, $250, and the
Omaha Towel Supply company, $63.06.
Mr. Cobb took charge of the business sa
soon as his bond was filed at norm and the
business will continue uninterrupted. As
a reason for the failure, Mr. Cobb said:
"Withdrawing money from his business
for outsido Investment was the direct
causo of the inability of Mr. Balduff beinfc
unablo to secure ready money with which
to meet the demands of creditors. The
business is a paying one. The new lunch
counter rpened last fall is feeding ten
times as many peopla dally as we formerly
accomodated and there Is no loss In any
department which would reflect In any way
on business conditions in Omaha."
The bankruptcy proceedings will In no
way effect the business of the Balduff
Pure Candy company, a corporation, the
stock in which Is held by some of the most
prominent business men in Omaha.

MORE LAND F0RSIGNAL POST
Greater Area Is First Thing !V ceded
to Expand the Reservation
"While the department Is gratified to see
the determination of the War department
to materially enlarge Fort Omaha as u
signal post," said an officer high In au
thority at Department of the Missouri
headquarters, "the first essential toward
securing this result will be the necessary
acquisition of more land for the reserva
tion. There is but eighty acres In the res
ervation now, and with the building al
ready erected, the parade grounds and use
of so much space for the balloon plant,
and buildings under process of erection
with others contemplated, about all the
available land of the reservation Is now
"The only available land now In the vlcin
ity of the post la a tract of about 100 acres
northwest of the present reservation. With
the acquisition of this tract, Fort Omaha
can be made all that the Signal corps de
partment could desire or need. This new
land acquirement would probably cause u
change In the present location of Die bal
loon house and hydrogen plant to a more
convenient part of ttie grounds."
TRAIN FIFTY HOURS LATE
Pnaaenarcra on Great Western Tell of
Snow Drlfta Thousand Feet
I.oiik Which They Met.
Fifty hours late the first Great Western
train to get through Iowa since the storm,
arrived In Omaha Sunday night at 9 o'clock.
This was the first train to get through
from Chicago or St. Paul, as the Great
Western was tho hardest hit of any of the
Iowa lines by the storm which raged
Thursday night and Friday.
Some thrilling experiences were related
by the belated travelers as they alighted
from the train. Aa "mother passenger train
which they saw later was pulling Into a
blind siding near Clarkscllle a box car
was blown across the track. The engine
hit the car and demolished It, but the en
gine was put out of commission by the
collision. The train was a daylight train,
with nj sleepers, and the collision broke
the steam connection, so that the pas
sengers were forced to remain In the cars
with no heat for nine hours.
"I never saw a bunch of people in a
hard plight take their medicine bj good
naturedly," said one of the passengers of
the train who arrived In Omaha Monday
morning. "We "played foot ball and ran
endurance races up and down the aisles and
did everything else the minds of cold peo
ple could contrive to keep warm."
The worst blockade on the Great West
ern was at a cut near Carroll, where the
snow drifted twelve .feet deep and 1.000
feet long. It was absolutely " impossible
for threo engines to penetrate or force their
way through the drift. In several places
the snow was dug out of cuts, where It
was as deep as the height of the coaches.
The wires were down, which made It
worse, as it was hard to get help to the
stalled trains. There were deep drifts at
Manning. Carroll and Harlan.
Tho only train which was very late Mon
day morning was the Mtlwaukee Overland
limited. It was about five hours late. Few
of the other trains were more than half an

OMAIl.VS LEADING CLOTHIERH
t FROM NEW YORK WORLD, APRIL 8, '08.1
TWO MONTHS ENJOYED
LIVING FOR FIRST TIME
The following statement was made by-
Mr. S. J. Simpson on Thursday afternoon
In connection with the Cooper preparations,
which have created a sensation throughout
the West and now being widely discussed
In New Tork.
Mr. Simpson, who lives at No. 979 Presi
dent street, Brooklyn, said:
"According to my experience, this man
Cooper Is Justified In his claims that his
medicine will actually put the stomach In
good condition. 1 have had chronic stom
ach trouble for several years paBt. My
stomach seemed to give out completely In
August, 1906, and J have been able to eat
"I have not taken the slighest enjoyment
In living, I have been so depressed by my
condition. Neither physician nor medicine
helped me, and It was only by the most
careful diet that I was able to retain any
food whatever. For the past seven months
I have not eaten a particle of meat. In
the most skeptical frame of mind possible
1 called to see Mr. Cooper about two mmths
ago, while he was In Brooklyn. I had not
the smallest hope his medicine would help
me, aa I had given up hope during the past
year. I obtained some of the medicine and
began its use. Today I am apparently as
well as ever. I obtained relief so rapidly
that it Is positively wonderful. 1 am in
good spirits, eat heartily, sleep well and
am better In every way. I am convinced
that the success this man is having In New
York Is richly deserved."
In a short Interview Mr. Codper said: "t
have been In New York a little less than
two months. So far as I can judge there
are now fifty thousand people, taking my
preparation does. 1 expect to fully prova
not less than one hundred thousand, as the
number Is Increasing very rapidly and peo
ple are Just beginning to learn what my
preparation does, t expert to fully pru'e
before I leave New York the claim I mail i
when I arrived, namely that stomach trn i
blo Is the great curse of the MHh century
among highly' civilized races and that It Is
responsible for ninety per cent of a'.l Ill
health. "My medicine does nothing but rcgjUt
the stomach, yet I have people lotne lo
me daily and tell me that It hm relieve.)
them of many and various ailments n it
generally recognized as due to stonntcli
"It Is easy enough to veilfy this slat
ment. An hour spent In listening to whit
people who call to see me are saying, who
obtained my medicine some time ago, will
prove what I say beyond a doubt.
Cooper's New Discovery Is the mejl
clne which made such a wonderful recurd
In New York. It Is on Bale at leading drug
gists' everywhere. Should your drugg'sL
