Intimate that in hlfl opinion most of the
state institutions of Nebraska are ad
ministered under a vicious sjstem. While
wo may not all bo th.-U far, perhaps there
la some cauae for criticism of our methods
in managing Institutions such as those In
charge of the board from which Mr. Pat
rick has resigned.
"Patrick was a member of the board a
very short time, a little over two months.
X think, but he seems to have found some
thing that offended his sense of the fit
ness of things. I note that he does not
criticise anybody personally, or by name,
o It la difficult to surmise Just what point
of administration or particular officials he
has In mind. No one has over raised any
question of the entire fitness of superin
tendent Abbott of the School for the Blind,
and I believe It Is generally admitted that
Superintendent Stewart of the Institute
for the Deaf and Dumb is a competent

In his criticism, since his letter of resigna

Text of the Letter.
Following I the text of the letter sent
to Governor Shallenberger under date by
Mr. Patrick In tendering his resignation:
Dear Governor: In my Judgment, the
present system of administering most of

and abhorrently wrong in fuct, and that

To my mind. It Is a sad reflection upon

these Institution are but part of the

With Partisan Doll tins nllmlna.tiw1 from

Money on Patient
Al Larson Miirht Have "Kent Four
Hundred Dollars, for Owner Hay
Die, but He Didn't Do It.
Al Larson Is an humble attendant at tnr
county hospital, poor and crippled. He
l a b-1 ti unfortunate In his time and Is
tuit past the meridian of life without any
hope of material prosperity.
Hut Al Larson is an honest man.
Hugh McKay, a man of past bO years,
was admitted to the county hotpital on
an order from Dr. Swoboda.
It is the Invariable custom of Superin
tendent Elsasser to have all patients bathod
and clothed In fresh, clean garments when
admitted and the rule was applied In the
case of this octogenarian. Ills clothes were
particularly worn and soiled. It is an
other custom In such casts to destroy
such garments by fire outside.
McKay was taken to his bath and Al
Larson started with his tattered garments
to the lot to burn them.
"I guebs a man as poor as he and
whose clothing la as ragged and dirty
cculdn't have anything of value In them."
mused Larson. "But anyway, he would
see. He found a dollar in one. pocket.
"That's all," he said to himself and
started again for the fire.
But he observed a lump In one part of
the vest. He ripped open the dingy thing
and there found S.T92.40 sewed up.
"What do you think of this old fellow
having S3H2.40 In his vest?" Larson ex
claimed, running Into the superintendent
as ir he had enricnea nimseu.
McKay Is old and so feeble that he may
die. Larson might have kept the money,
hid his secret and no one would ever
have been tho wiser.
"But it wasn't my money and I don't
want what lsn t mine. said the nonest
old attendant as he laid the money down
on Superintendent Elsasser's desk.
MYSTERY ABOUT DEATH OF
GUS LINDEN AT HOSPITAL
He Was Found "Ick on Car, hot
Not Give Ilospltnl People
Mystery surrounds the death at St. Jo
seph's hospital Wednesday night of Gus
Linden, a stone quarry employe at Louis
ville. All efforts by the hospital to ascer
tain what caused Linden's death have been
without result, and a postmortem examina
tion will be necessary. Linden's only In
formation at the hospital was to the ef
fect that he had sustained a fall. He was
very weak and died In less than two hours.
Linden was noticed by a passenger on a
street car to be acting queerly, as though
sick, and the stranger offered to asslRt
htm to a hospital. It was T o'clock when
Linden was received at th institution and
at 8:45 he was dead.
Coroner Heafey was notified and en
deavored to find out something concerning
Linden from Louisville, but was unsuc
cessful. The man said he was Swedish
and his age was apparently about 85 years.
There are three stone quarries at Louis
vllle and the coroner is now endeavoring
to ascertain at which one Linden was em
ployed and whether or not he met with
some injury there. An examination of his
body at th morgue showed not a single
bruise or abrasion. Had he sustained In
ternal injuries it Is believed a hemorrhage
would have followed, but there is no evi
dence of such action.
The time for th inquest has not been
set, but it will likely be Friday morning.

out as the beat piece of pavement In the

JUDICIAL GRIST IS COSTLY
Expense of Douglas District Court is
Greater Than Total Judgments.
SPECIMEN CASE NOW ON TRIAL
Temll-Fllf Days Itcqnlred to
t aae Involving !,!&, at
tost in the County of
Trl-il of cases In district court Is costing
the county and state more money than the
total of Judgments recovered. The fact is
astonishing, but the figures are irrefuta
ble. It has been calculated that the actual
d illy expense of running the courts of the
county is 171. 1 The figure Is reached as
Judge, salary per annum $ S.0H0
Stenographer, salary l.oO
Bailiff, salary .M0
District clerk 2.5(0
The figures on the district clerk is
reached as follows: The total expense of
the office (gross) Is $18,000 a year. This
covers seven courts, and to get the figure
for one Judge there should be a division by 7.
This total of 18,200 covers thirty-five
weeks of the year during which trials are
held. One thirty-fifth of the figure Is 1236.
Trials are held five days a week and the
daily expense Is thus one-fifth of $235, or
$47. To this $47 must be added $24 $2 each
for twelvt Jurors making a dally ex
pense of $71.
Now take this into consideration with a
case which is before Judge Kennedy, not
by any means the mos-t dilatory Judge of
the seven. In fact, many people consider
him the most energetic.
This cuwe Is the suit for $1,665 of Hans
Christiansen against the Omaha Ice and
Old Storage company. It began Novem
ber 11 and has gone on without intermis
sion of any kind. It will not be concluded
until the end of this week and will have
taken approximately twenty days of actual
trial. Multiply $71 by twenty and the prod
uct la $1,420.
This Is only $245 less than the total sued
for, and it Is no safe assumption that a
verdict will be rendered for any amount
These are the facta. The remedy Is less
easy to announce.

miles an hour, when plate glass fronts

These sulta are filed against the First
Swedish Methodist Episcopal church of
Omaha. One is by Mlsa May McNamara
who asks $1,000, and the other, by the
people with whom she lived, Mr. and Mrs,
Michael Sulley, of Nineteenth and Cuming
Streets. They seek $.7)0.
It will be recalled that the wind caught
a brick chimney on the church next door
to the Sulley home and deposited the
chimney on the roof of the home. It did
not stay on the roof, but went on down
through and Miss McNamara awoke to
find herself enveloped by quilts and
blankets of brick and mortar.
Both petitions charge that the chimney
! was made of defective material. Miss Mc
Namara recites that her good looks re
ceived permanent Injuries through half a
dozen sears, which remain on her face.
The Sulleys asserts that their furniture
was Injured and that they themselves re
ceived a considerable nervous shock.

A droll incident happened at the Joint
meeting of the state societies of the
Daughters and Sons of the American
Revolution at the Rome hotel Tuesday
evening showing that even the ultra ex

rusty in the rendering of patriotic songs.
The "Star Spangled Banner," the gen

called for. In the attempt to sing It most
of the patriots had either forgotten the
words or did not know them and a book
had to be hunted up containing the words.
Even then there was considerable confu

the tune with the assistance of the orches

Al Keenan is
in Court House
Bar Committee Insists He Be Chasec
Out and Fickard Goes
Moved by the fact that A? Keenan has
been actively buying claims and warrants
In the court house, Attorneys Frank L.
Weaver and Jacob L. Kaley visited tha
office of the Board of County Commis
sioners and entered a protest. They met
Commlssioneis Trainor and Plckard and
these members of the board declared that
they would Issuo an order to George .
Stryker. custodian of the court house .to
tell Keenan to keep out of the building.
Commissioner Fickard went In search of
Stryker to notify him, but did not find
Stryker in his room.
"Keenan Is aa active as ever In buying
warrants," said one of the lawyers, "and
In talking to jurors, and this is not only
In violation of the orCer of the commis
sioners last spring, but his own trial
for alleged attempted Jury-brlblng Is Boon
to come up. I understand."
Mewsrs. Weaver and Kalcy form a special
committee of the Douglas County Bar
association appointed to are the county
commissioners to get fee shavers excluded
from the court house. They Interviewed the
board last spring and the resolution was
passed. For sometime It was obeyed, but
recently Al Keenan haa been an every-day
visitor at the court house.
The Bar association meets Saturday night
and since there has been considerable talk
of Keenan's renewed activity, the two
members of the special committee probably
have been partially moved to act by the
necessity of making a report.
"The Keenan tria'. will come up In the
course of a few weeks." said County
Attorney English. "We shall get at It as
soon as we can. No. there Is no thought of
abandoning the prosecution."
