iuxter bakers of Omaha and South
Omaha have organ lied an association with
- twenty-three charter members and will
hold a general meeting at the Paxton hotel

itates near have well organised associa
tions of master bakera.
. Charles Ortman la presldent--of the new
organisation ; T. F. Mulligan, vice presi
dent, and F. E. Bonne, secretary.
The call to the bakers of Omaha to at-
tend the meeting at the Paxton hotel and
giving notice of the organisation, aays:
. It Is understood here In Omaha that the
sentiment prevails throughout the atate to
"bring about a Nebraska, State association.
Many expressions to this eftect have
reached us from over the atate. Aa master
bakers, moat of us have come to realise
that we have many Interests In common
which can be met only through organised
effort. By co-operation we can enlarge the
possibilities of every baker in the busi
ness and thua Increase the opportunities of
every baker la the atate.
Feeling that the atate looks to Omaha
to take the Initiative, we or Omaha deslie
to show an appreciation of our duty and of
our sentiment, and hereby call a gathering
of the bakera of Nebraska to Join with us
at Omaha on March t and I In an effort
to launch a atate association. Tour sup
port la very earnestly requested and more
than all else It is urged that you be pres
tat In person. With good attendance
(ranted, our auccesa la assured.
The movement Is by no meana a new
, departure. East of us tha state associa
tions are accomplishing big things. A few
weeka ago Kansaa organised with only
forty charter members, but since then ep-
. plications for membership have been com
ing In from all parta of Kansaa. Iowa and
Mtaseurl are strong, and even the young
tate of . Oklahoma is ahead of us with a
good association. We may be last, but

John Masuredls, who killed Officer Ed
ward ' IvOWery of Bouth Omaha Friday
night waa . identified In the county
jail Saturday morning by N. J. Mandannla,
a contractor for the Vnlon Pacific, who has
known tho prisoner several years. Mandan
nls wst the only msn to whom Masuredls
would talk. He has a tale, of self-defense
to offer.
"I took the revolver out of my pocket
and was gnlng to throw it away." declared
Masuredls. "I did not want to be fined for
carrying concealed weapons. The police
man thought' I was going to shoot at him
and ha fired at me, hitting me In the
breast. Then 1 fired at him to save my
self. . He then shot at me again, hitting me
In the leg.
"I did not Intend to kill him."
The South Omaha police had kept their
eyea on Masuredls ever since he returned
to Omaha from Kansaa City two weeks
ago. They saw him In the company of the
girl, Lllll Breese. That young woman was
arrested some time ago, It is said, and It la
declared aha la not IS years old, but 17.
Masuredls repeated to hla friend Mandan
nla his story that ha went to see tha girl
to learn English and asserted that ha had
a primer In his pocket as ' well aa the revolver.-
Masuredls - has been in America
three .and one-half years, coming here from
Measenla, Greece, where ho haa a wife and
one son about 6 years old. He first went to
Sunrise, Wyo., where his brother Gust was
at the time. Later the two came to South
Omaha and opened a confectionery and
grocery. This was sold Borne montha ago
and Gust Masuredls went to Alexandria,
Egypt, where he now Is. Tha man who
shot the policeman went to Kansaa City.
No one oould get a word out of tha pris
oner, whose wounds are not serious, save
his fellow countryman. To jail officials,
the sheriff and newspaper rnen he refused
to answer, although he can talk English a
little and must have understood the ques
tions addressed him. He submitted to be
ing photographed without protest.
Story of tho Mnrder.
Officer Lowery was shot and Instantly
killed by Masuredls at five minutes be
fore 12 o'clock Friday night at the corner
of -Twenty-fourth and N streets. Lowery
had gone up to the room where the girl,
Ulll Breese lived to arrest Masuredls for
vagrancy. He found him and the girl
there and brought them downstairs and out
on the street It was then that Masuredls
pulled his gun and fired at the policeman.
He shot twice, tho bullets striking Lowery
In the right leg and left aide. The bullet in
the side severed the mesenteric artery and
the policeman bled to death In leas than
five minutes In Reliefer's drug store,
whither ho waa carried.'
Masuredls ran around a street car and
then back to tho staircase and up again
to the girl's room. Here Officer Harder
found v him hiding under the bed. Harder
dragged him out and then the Greek showed
tight and reached for his gun. The officer
lost no time In applying hla club, knocking
the man out tha first blow. The chief of
police and four other officers were called
frcm the drug atore and kept a large crowd
of angry men back who ahouted. "Hang
Mm! . Hang . him!:... Further than, these
sl'tuta there .was no disorder, except that
the men crowded around the prisoner yell
ing all the way to the jail. There Dr.
Koenig, who had attended Officer Lowery
during hla dying moments, examined tha
Greek and discovered his wounds.
Mra Lowery had arrived at tha drug atore
within a few minutes after tha ahoot
lng, but not in time to bid farewell to
one of tho bravest, kindliest officers on
tha force. Her grief waa most pitiful
and '-"the effect on the Immense crowd
waa maddening, .
Girl Telia Story.
The girl who waa accompanying the
Greek made no effort to eacape and was
making her way aobblng toward her room
when she was detained and taken to the
police atation. There aha told the . first
story of the shooting..
Sho said; 'I waa teaching the man to
speak English. He came to my rooms
evenlnga to learn wbat he could. Mrs.
Haynea called the officer and when he
came, in the prisoner waa aeated on the
edge , ef tha bed and we were talking.
The - officer said, .'Aha, I want you,' to
tho Greek. Then he told me to get ready
to go to the police station. I wsnt, for
the officer told me I could come right
back again. When wa got opposite the
car uaed for a ahop I waa ahead. I heard
tha officer aay, 'None of that now,' and
then heard two shots. I don't know who
shot first. ' Both were shooting. The man
dove under the car and the officer fired
one ahot after him, and then aank to hla
knees. The Greek then got up and
walked away."
Tho woman Is small, of dark com
plexion, sharp-witted and apparently
frank In her story. The police will
not hold her except as a witness. She
was placed in a cell for the night.
Mok Tkreatene Revenge,
There was much trouble before Masuredls
waa safely lodged In the Douglas county
jail. Frcm the South Omaha lockup he waa
was taken a little past midnight to the
South Omaha hospital. Five hundred men
howling for the Qreex's blood had sur
rounded the jail, but made no overt effort
to get him when he was hustled Into an
ambulance guarded by the chief of police
and aa many men as that official could
The mob was told that Masuredls had
been shot and that hla chances of recovery
were small. Thla had for a time a mollify
lng effect, but while he was In the hospital
the newa of the murder waa apread over
Bouth Omaha as fast as only a tale of
murder can travel. The officers had word
of the spirit of mob vengeance now aurgtng
higher and higher.
They then determined to bring Masuredls
to Omaha. He wss replaced in the ambu
lance and the drive begun. A roundabout
way waa pursued In order to deceive any
Officer Lowery had been on tha force
tor a number of years. His residence wss
at Twenty-fourth and K atreeta He la
survived by a wire and three children.
The oldest Is Miss Katheiine Lowery, a
atudent at the State university. A son
of 17 named Vance la well known In South
Omaha, a hustling, msnly fellow. There
Is a younger child. No arrangements could
be made for anything last night.

Amid all thla confualon the pioneer rail
ways covered themselves with glory by
running trains almost without Interruption.

the snow had drifted badly and, according

One hundred and twenty-five professional
gentlemen, tha flower of Philadelphia, each
of them relieved of his vermlfqrm appendix
through the skill of a brother surgeon are
to give a dinper In his honor. Some thirty
or forty appendlxless residents of outlying are to Join the professionals In
celebrating their Immunity from stomach
ache and In toasting their deliverer. It lu
not known that thla genlua of tha knife 1'
himself minus an appendix, but presum
ably he Is; at any rate,, with such'as atrlng
of appendlxea to his credit he will be In
congenial company.

recollections will be reviewed; what aim- ,
llarltlea of symptoms will bo discussed,
what oherlshed memories of happy hospital
days will arise. Who knows but that thla
dinner may bring together such a concen
tration of Ideas on a single subject as to
lead to new discoveries relating to the ver
miform appendix? Already It Is evident
that the Idea of . appendix dinners will ,
spread. Every community will have one; '
and if appendix dinners, why not others?
