aa Final Contestants for Honors
Before the largest and most enthusiastic
crowd ever seen at a similar event In
Omaha, the city bowling tournament was
started at the Metropolitan alleys Monday
The alleys had Just been shellaced and
were In a cond.tlon similar to those used
In natlorral tournaments. This with new
pins had the tendency to rattle the bowlers.
The outbursts of the many rooters also had
Mayor Dahlman was called upon to roll
the first ball and after a very appropriate
speech his effort to get all the ten pins
was awarded by getting but one. However,
that happened to be the ten pin and the
result sought after was accomplished.
The first contestants were the Omahas
and the Omaha Bicycle company. Hard
luck coupled with poor bowling kept the
two teams from securing their usual aver
ages. The Bikes, however, struck their
usual stride in the last game and finished
with a fine score of 972.
Eucell was the only bowler In the first
game to go through without a break.
The Stcn Triumphs and Loch"s Willow
Springs composed the second squad. Both
teams bowled considerably better than the
first two. The Triumphs, present city
champions went Into first place, four pins
ahead of the Loch's. Zimmerman was
high, with 5SS, a good score, new pins and
alleys considered. Seaman was running
close with 5S7.
Leaders to Meet.
The Mett Bros, leaders of the .Omaha
league will be pitted against the hustling
Glendales of the Commercial league. It la
the Impression of most of the bowlers that
one or the other of these teams will re
cure first place In 'the tournament.
The Molonys will play the Beselln Mixers.

Owner Denies tkat It Haa Been Ac

DENVER, Colo., Dec. 28. D. H. Moffat,
president of the Denver North weslorn dt
Pacific railroad, known as the "Moffat
road," this afternoon emphatically denied
a story published In a local paper to the
effect that the Rock Island system had
acquired control ot the Moffat road.
The report -was based on an assertion
that the stock of the James Peak tunnel
project had been withdrawn. This wss a
$6,000,000 corporation, the object of which
was to drive a bore through James Peak,
thus reducing materially the heavy gradss
on the east end ot the Moffat road.
"There'snot a word of truth In it," aald
Mr. Moffat to the Associated Press. "The
Moffat road Is not sold and It Is not going
ta be sold. There never was but $2,600
worth of stock of the James Peak tunnei
project issued, anyway, and that Is In
the safe of ths Moffat road. It's going lo
stay there. No one from the Rock Island
systom has ever seen about the possible
sale of the road, and I do not expect any
one to see roe."

of Mr. and Mrs. William E. Ritter, both
aged about 70, and wealthy, were found
at their horns In Elmors township latn
Mrs. Rltter's body was discovered In thn
living room. Her clothes, with the ex
ception of s llgfet undergarment,' had been
torn from her and there were marks on
her neck that Indicated that aha had been
strangled. Furniture wss scattered about
the room and the drawers of the dresser
were rifled with their contents strewn ovsr
Ritter s body was found In a milk house
It was in a stooping position ss if Ritter
had been 111 when he died. It Is believed
that the crime waa committed Friday night
as there were no foot prints in the snow
about tho Ritter home.
The Rltters, who were quits wealthy,
were said to have kept considerable money
In their house. 1 '
While the officers have advanced . tho
theory that the Rltters were- murdered,
there is some evidence to show that Rit
ter choked his wife to death and then took
poison to end his own life. If the couplat
ever quarreled It Is not known. Tint
theory that Ritter killed his wife and then
took poison Is supported by ths fact that
Ritter was sick befors he died.
