ing chief. For. many years Mr. Malone
has been the city detective, and upon the
retirement of Chief Rlckard he was elected
ectlng chief to serve until the board got
around to elect a successor to Rlckard.
Hut the force has shown such Improve
ment that It Is very probable Mr. Malono
will be asked to continue permanently in
his new position.
Chief Malone started off by having pa
trolmen stationed at the street Intersec
tions in the downtown districts between
B:S0 and 8:30 o'clock during the rush hour
and this has resulted not only in facilitat
ing traffic, but no doubt In preventing ac
cidents. Several changes have been made
In the personnel of the force since Malone
became chief and he now has a depart
ment superior to any probably ever before

months. Another engineer has applied for

months, when he wants $S0. Myer receives
170 the year around. lie fears that Com
mander Rowden may conclude to hire the
other man and thus save some money for
the state. Members of the board are In
clined to believe that It will reaulre an
extra man during the winter months.
Johnson Succeeds Klnyon.

his South American tour. For several
days he has been making anxious In
quiries for one Arthur Mullen, state oil
inspector and defender of the laws. Today
Mr. Mullen showed up at his office after
a long and unexplained absence. Mr.
Bryan's request that he be allowed an
Interview was conveyed to the oil Inspec
tor and for all anyone knows around the
state house the two have been together
before this. Incidentally, that furniture

O'Neill some weeks ago. Is also helm?

Inspector away from his arduous state
duties during the afternoon.
Xo Block from that Table.
The Masonic lodge of Iowa, writing from
Cedar Rapids, has asked the secretary of
state to send Its secretary a cube of wood
from the state house to be placed In a
historic table being constructed for the
lodge library. The letter said 30mo pieces
of historic wood from all parts of the
world had been collected for the table.
Governor Shallenborger's office force was
asked to permit the taking of a cube from
the table upon which the S o'clock closing
bill was signed, but In the absence of the
governor the request was refused.

must pay the cost of erecting a line for
a distance of about 100 rods to his home.

Street Car Accident Near
(From e. Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Nov. 13 (Special Telegram.)
While the funeral of Mrs. L. W. liurke, a
Lincoln woman, wns proceeding to Wyuka
cenutery tl Is morning the hearse was run !
Into by a street car within a short distance !
of the cemetery. The casket was thrown 1
out of the hearse, which was badly j
smashed, and rolled into the road. The !
covering over the face of the corpse was j
broken and the glass fell onto the face.
When the casket fell the corpse was turned
onto Its side.
When the relatives realized what had j
happened they becume hysterical and the '
body was rushed to the receiving vault,
where Undertaker Roberts rearranged the i
Great Indignation Is expressed over the I
occurrence, which Is the culmination of
several apparently Inexcusable Interrup
tions of funeral processions by street car
Ernest Overton was the motorman In
charge of the car and his story told to the
manager of the traction company was that
he stopped the car to let the procession
pass and that ' the carriages stopped and
then he started his car.
The husband of the dead woman was
nearly frantic when he discovered the acci
dent and he announced today that he would
prosecute the company for carelessness.
Walton G. Roberts, the undertaker, has
made several complaints, as have other
undertakers, of the carelessness of the
street car company In rushing their carB
through funeral processions, but the com
plaints have evidently had little effect.
