which prompted B. F. Stewart, deputy
sheriff, to rite In his wrath and fire a
stone Into the eatlbule of a North Twenty
fourth street car on Saturday night,

appreciate the extreme provocation. He

duct. The car was late and loaded with
passenicers, therefore making no stops In
the effort to make up lost time.
Mr. . Stewart' vengeful effort caused
nothing more serious than a broken, pane.

Th. Pant rid'tirf rtu Ivhicli ha.
dragged Its length over two weeks. endd
ihursday afternoon, when A. W, Jefferts
closed hts final ' argument. Judge Troup
will not give a derision for two weeks,
because he , goes to . Hurt county for . a
week Monday and between how and then
has other matters on his table ,whlch
will perforce occupy him.
"Has It come to this, that counsel wants
to try his case through the press?" asked
A. W. Jefferls In his closing argument.
Jefferls also declared that Oeneral Cowln
"Insulted the court" through a certain
line of 'argument advanced.
Final argument of the proceedings was
heated throughout,' General Cowln attack
ing Paul again and again and lamenting
that the English language did not con
tain words of denunciation strong enough
td express his opinion of Paul. Neverthe
less the attorney did manage to find a
good many fairly strong words.
The final plea of General Cowln for the
defense was "for no verdict submitting
Mrs. Paul and the children to everlasting
disgrace and Infamy." Counsel In his ar
gument for the defendant practically
.bandoned the crufts bill against Taul and
strove his hardest that no decree shall Is
sue on the grouno of infidelity.
A. W. Jefferls. replying, turned some of
General Cowln'a rhetoric back on him and
declared that the other lawyer's argument
waa In Cowln s own words, tne arum
of an eleDhant. the roar of a lion, the
growl of a bear and the hiss of a snake."
Never In my life," continued Jefferls.
"Old I expect to hear In a court of Justice
an argument to the effect that counsel
would prefer, In his way of thinking, that
John Paul should murder In cold blood,
human beings, his wife and children
should prefer this to Paul's coming, as a
law-abiding cltixcn, into a court of Justice.
"Yet It Cornea from Him."
"Vit It comes from the Hps of counsel
practicing at thin bar for many years that
John Paul would have better taken his
wife, and, as he pictured the scene, gagged
and bound her, and strangled ner mm,
)her than Paul ahould have proceeded
In a legal way to adjust these differences.
Strang argument!
he should want these chil
dren of whom he has so continually prated
throughout this trial to have a' picture 01
blood spilled upon the ground and murder
stalking forth.
"Nay, more than that! counsel wouia
have John Paul throw himself Into the
river, commit suicide and to leave the dis
grace of this upon the children.
'It la rank anarchism that he preacnas.
t .At wife to to any extent that she pleases
and the husband must not come Into court.
Strange argument from a strange manl
"Counsel seems to be rinding fault wun
the' law that provides a tribunal for such
cues as these. In addition td this he must
indict the press because It has not done
as he wished it to do, lorsootn. uoes ne
want to try his case In the press? Has it
come to this?"

"Central Wyoming Is looking for re

and plans are already under way for sev
eral undertakings."1 said Charles Brennl
man. state representative of Wyoming and
superintendent for Asmus Bo) sen In th
building of the giant dam and power plant
at the entrance to the Big Horn gorge.
Joy Morton and other eastern capi
talists were at Lander last week and the
people In that section think these men
are about to' begin th construction of a
big irrigation scheme which will redeem
about 1,000,000 acres of waste land. They
have had control of thla land for some
years and th time Is coming when they
must make good by building ditches or
moving, and as It Is too valuable a prop
osition to throw aside," something will be
"The Burlington Is now building through
the Big Horn gorge and bas a large num
ber of outfits at work. Some of this
work Is of the heaviest kind and wilt cost
a large amount of money. There Is on
camp In the gorge where the walla rise
for 1,000 feet on, either side and th sun
never strikes the camp."

to com up soon for trial In county court
It has been in a somnolent state since
May 28, and Abbott and Thomas would
fain not have cruelly roused It from its
slumbers. Judge Leslie, 'however, has de
clared that it mast be tried or b swept
front the docket, so that It Is now set for
next Wednesday.
This is the suit' brought In the nam
of Andrew B. Somers against F. H. Hoye,

E. Reagan and T. A. Spratlen. The first

were elected at the dlty election. The
second quartet were the democratic candidates;
Lysle Abbott. H. K. Maxwell. T. B. Nor-
rls and M. C. Steele constituted the Anti
Saloon league candidates and they ob
jected because the ' republican and demo
cratic candidates toad' (the party designa

in district court and an appeal to the
supreme court was decided adversely to
the leaguers the other day. After the

"Put Omaha' on the map In the way of
river navigation."' said Richard C. Patter
son of Kansas City at the Paxton.
Mr. Y'atteraon, who was a former Omaha
memtv.T of the bar, is now proprietor of
the Centropolis hotel at Kansas City and
camo here on some private business. Mr.
Patterson was not averse to doing a little
"b'jostlng" for . Kansas City, which, h
S4ld, Is going aliead with leaps and
bounds. Over 4,000 new buildings are In
course of erection there, he said, and prop
erty values, especially on the river front,
have doubled in value, because of the
movement towards bringing about more
efficient navigation methods between Kan
sas City, and Nw Orleans.
'Kansas City,", said Mr. Patterson, ha
raised over $400,000 for river navigation and
will ultimately make It a million dollars.
With this fund It wilt put boats on th
Mississippi between Kansas City and New
Orleans and bring about river navigation,
which Is Just now occupying considerable
attention throughout the middle west. And
It Is the proper thing to do.
"tJmanas progressive Business men
should get together and raise a fund so
that a line of steamers eould be put on
between her and the gulf. Such a step
would do more for Omaha than anything,
as will be the result to Kansas City."

Governor B. B. Brooks of Wyoming ar
rived in th city Thursday morning en
route home from New Orleans, to which
point he recently, with twenty-five other
governors, accompanied President Taft on
hla famous trip down the Mississippi from
St. Louis. Before leaving for home Gov
ernor Brooks will dispone of some private
business here, expecting to be In Cheyenne
by Saturday. During his stay here the
governor Is registered at the Her Grand
Governor Brooks says It was one of the
most delightful business and pleasure trips
he had ever made. All along th route a
bond of friendship was cemented between
th north and south. There was little of
politics during the trip, he said.
"During the entire voyage down the river
the twenty-alx governors held frequent con
ferences, meeting every day at least onca,
and discussing a great many matters which
will undoubtedly prove of great benefit and
value to them," said th governor. "While
governors of states do not make th laws,
they play an important part in moulding
publlo opinion, and for this reason at least
conferences of every governor In the union
should bs held. It would be of lnitlmable
value and bring about similarity of laws
and regulations In the several states."
C onelderable stress was Jold by Governor
Brooks upon the conservation of resources
and reclamation of th arid lands.
"The entire Mississippi and Missouri val
ley districts afford unlimited opportunities
fur conservation," said he. "and it Is
to be hoped the next congress will take
an active Interest in the matter. Other
states are expending millions of dollars
annually to Improve their dexert lands and
there seems no good reason why the west
ern states should not receive national rec
ognition. " '
"Wyoming has two large storage basins
erected by th federal government, which
serve as a two-fold purpose. In the
spring they take care of the surplus
waters caused by the annual floods and
at this period of the year provide the
necessary water supply to bring about crop
and grain results such as are enjoyed by
the flnent Irrigated districts of the country.
"Wyoming and the adjoining states of
fer the finest kind 'of resources for ad
vancement and progress. It is up to the
people and the federal oongress to aid In
th work and make this western country
a rich and prosperous land. American en
ergy ha reached a point where it Is on
the verge of overflowing.
"The conservation movement Is an all
important topic. It Is unquestionably a
movement that should appeal to every
one of our 80,000,000 or 1(0,000,000. It seems
to me as a patriotic service on the part
of th people, and with the assistance of
congress something definite should cer
tainly be brought about within the next
couple of years."
With reference to the conferences of
governors, the Wyoming executive may
be one of those to set the ball rolling In
an endeavor to bring about an annual
gathering of the governors of the union,
when matters of state and national im
portance and interest may be discussed
and views exchanged which will prove of
benefit to all.
