Be view Force Drawn Up in Serried Sank. With their shoes, brass buttons and sllvsr badges shining from many polishlngs, their blue uniforms spotless and pressed Into razor-edge creases, and regulation pa rade smiles qn their faces, 100 officers and men of the police department, under Chief Donahue, took part In the annual drill and inspection Thursday1 afternoon. Mayor Dahlman, and W. F. Wappich, W. J. Hunter and Charles Karbach of the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners, reviewed tha men in front of the police station at Eleventh and Dodge streets. Aside from a few insignificant hitches, tha maneuvers went off with precision. A small, but decidedly active, colored boy al most upset the official photographer's camera just as he was snapping a bunch of smiles on the faces of the men In lno; a fly tried Its best to remain in one cf "Lieutenant" Thomas Hayes' ears while he was In command of the patrolmen dur ing the drill; some of the spectators pot tha clean-up fever from looking at the spick and span "cops" and stampeded to the shoe shining box in the Jail hallway, and one of the commissioners was almost overcome by standing too near the chief's diamond set gold badge. Mayor Dahlman complimented the of ficers and men for their drilling and on the condition of the Jail building, police dis pensary, auto patrol, motorcycles, patrol wagon and horses, all of w.hlch were In spected. He also praised the officers for the creditable stand they had taken In le gard to the aalary increase question. "The legislature," he said, "waa highly considerate of your value to tha com munity, and so raised your salaries. But It failed to attend to the most Important thing, the 'appropriation which had to be Increased to meet the salary increases. Tou deserve great credit for agreeing to aerve the city at the old scale of pay when by law more Is due you." Commissioners Wappich and Hunter and Chief Donahue also made brief speeches to the men.

Mayor Otto Zuelow of Schuyler thinks h has solved the tramp problem, which In cities of Schuyler's slz Is a serious one. His solution Is simple and may be spoiled with Just four letters W-O-K-K. "When a tramp comes along he Is taken before our magistrate, fined $10 and as sessed the costs, which amount to $4.50." says Mayor Zuelow, who spent Thursday In Omaha, "and then he Is permitted to work out this fine at $1.60 a day. The method has proved very successful and Schuyler has one tramp today where It had ten when I went Into office." But the mayor Is a diligent man. He is not content to leave the details of his scheme entirely to others. He U also a studious man. He goes Into the situation personally, he studies the tramps, their characteristics, tricks and turns, and gives the closest attention to the application of his principle. And he is 'learning a whole lot about human nature, and tramp nature In particular that he didn't know before The other day," sal.1 the mayor, "one traniD fainted right before my eyes. He Just shut his eyes and keeled over. I called the doctor. 'Take this man out,' I told him, 'he's a sick man. Give him some medicine and then give, him something- to eat and let me know how much he eata.' "I a-ot hold of the man. I told him he was a very sick man and had better be careful. After he had eaten the doctor told me he had eaten like a horse. I went In where he was lying. 'And how are vou nowf I asked him. No answer. He lay there with his eyes shut and pretended not to hear or see me. I got him up. told him he had eaten a big meal and would have to go to work, and If he didn't work well I'd make him stay longer, but If lie did work well he could get away two or three days sooner than he expected. "You never saw a man work as he did. I asked him when he got through If he would come back to Schuyler, and he said, I'd rather go to h II.' "I consider we have solved the problem when we can make tramps prefer to go there. "This work which they do Is on our ttreets and our streets are In better condi tion today than they ever were. I war rant you we won't have such a thing as a tramp In our town In another six months Schuyler will be well advertised as a good place for tramps to pass up." AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA y Firit Grass Fed Cattle of Season Reach Stock Yards. HOG RECEIPTS INCREASING Grade Schools Hold Graduating; Exer cises M las Tramble of Chicago Dies Suddenly at Home of John Colvln. Quick Action for -ur Money Tou get your business on the run. The season for grass-fed cattle has ar rived In South Omaha. During the present week the first shipments arrived. From this time on each day will show a large percentage of gain In this class of stock. Along with these grass-fed cattle will come a few summer beeves on a long feed of corn. Last year there were iew summer- fed cattle for the reason that the panic of 1907 came at a time when feeders would naturally have bought these cattle. The only trouble this season has been the high price of corn prevailing. However, the stockmen are looking for a much larger number of summer-fed cattle than last year. The combination or me iwo classes of cattle will probably keep up the steady Increase In receipts over the figures of last year from this time on. Beeves well fattened on graoa bring a price not far below the corn-fed cattle. They are killed largely by the packers. The element of loss In grass-fed cattle arises because the animals dress away much more than the animals fattened on concentrated food. The hog market of South Omaha remains steadily in the race with other centers. Prices held up fairly well yesterday, a top of $7.65 being paid. Larger receipts have been coming In of lates The comparative statements will show a slight decrease over last year's figures. Mies Anna V. Trsmblt Dead. Miss Anna F. Trumble of Chicago, aged 41, died suddenly yesterday morning at the residence of John Colvln. Bhe came but a day or two ago and was passing a short visit with the Colvlns. Not feeling quite well, she sat down in a chair, and when the relatives next noticed her she was dead. She Is survived by her mother, three sisters and three brothers. These relatives are expected to arrive n South Omaha today. No arrangement for the funeral has been made. It la probable that the body will be sent to Mollne, 111. Graduating; Exercises. The South Omaha grades held most of their graduating exercises yesterday. The Lincoln school celebrated the occasion by dedicating several pieces of statuary.

KNICKERBOCKER Rev. T. J. Markay Entertains "mail Company at Clergymen at the llenshaw. Rev. T. J. Mackay, rector of All Saints' church gave a farewell dinner for Rev. Addison E. Knickerbocker at the Henshaw Thursday evening. Rev. Knickerbocker has resigned his rectorship of St. Mathias' church to accept a call from Red Wing, Minn., and twelve clergymen of Omaha and vicinity met last night over the din ner table to bid him farewell. . After a delightful menu had been enjoyed In the dining room the party repaired to a pri vate committee room and there spent two hours In friendly Intercourse. Those present were: Rt. Rev. Arthur L. Williams, bishop of the Episcopal dloceae of Nebraska; Rev. A. E. Knickerbocker, Rev. John Williams, Rev. J. W. Jones of Council Bluffs, Rev. E. G. B. Brown, Uev. T. J. Collar, Rev. F. D.

Good fellowship ruled at the dinner given by the trade excursion committee of the Omaha Commercial club Thursday, the last trade excursion was gone over remlnis cently and plans were laid for boosters night st the den next Monday night Among the members of the trade excur sion committee present were: D. B. Fuller, chairman; J. Clarke Colt, T. B. Coleman, Leroy Corliss, O. W. Dunn, G. J. Ingwer son, C. E. Johannes, Joe Kelly, F. T. B. Martin, D. J. O'Brien, W. B. Tagg, J. H. Taylor, Will L. Tetter and Commissioner J. M. Guild. After the dinner at the Commercial club the committee adjourned to Mr. Martin's rooms to see the moving pictures mads of the trip. These pictures will be shown at the den next Monday night. , "The success of this trip Is the culmina tion of a change of sentiment in Omaha," said J. C. Colt. "A few years ago it was a hard task to get out as many boosters as this for any sort of an occasion, but now it seems as though the whole popula tion of Omaha were boosters. This ex cursion is the first given by Omaha, for which applications for reservations had to be turned down. Heretofore tha com mittee has had to hustle for representa tives to accompany the trip, but It Was some pleasure to turn down lata comers this time." W. B. Tagg of South Omaha used "an nexation" as his text, although he said rm did not like the word and preferred "con solidation" or "co-operation." "It sounds better to the smaller fellow," said Mr. Tagg. "The people of South Om aha have found out that Omaha does not want to be the dictator and are becoming willing to consolidate." "Omaha Is the top notch city In the trade excursion business." said Will L. Yetter. "We heard on all sides that the Omaha boosters had more life than those of any other city. When boosting for Omaha we should always boost for Nebraska, for that will help Omaha more than any other one thing." Dan Fuller claimed he went on the first trade excursion which ever crossed Ne braska, for he went on the first train the Burlington ever ran in the state when he rode on a freight train from Plattsmouth to Lincoln In the 80 s. , Commissioner Guild thought ths wonder ful reputation Omaha was enjoying all over the country was due more to the trde excursion committee than to any other one factor. He said that if all the committees would hustle as does the trade extension ths influence of Omaha would Increase most surprisingly.

He says he signaled to the occupants of the buggy to turn out and get on the other side of ths street where they belonged. When they seemingly showed no inten tion or doing so he started to turn. So did they and the collision resulted. The occupants of ths buggy were thrown to the ground and the baby received some slight Injuries about' ths head. Both ve hicles were badly demolished.
