business of this term of court.
Mra. Collins and Calamese were ar
raigned yestarday before Judge Thornell
and both pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Their bonds wcro f lxod at $3,000 each, but
it was stated that In view of the fact that
their trial is to tnko place soon they will
not make any effort to furnish ball. City
Solicitor Kimbull,'. who is attorney for
Calamese, contemplated habeas corpus
corpus proceeding on behalf of the young
negro, but yuterday stated that he would
not now do so seeing that the case was
to be- tried so soon and that he felt as
sured that his client would be acquitted.
The rearrangement of the assignment of
jury coses Caused by fixing the Collins
murder case for next Wednesday made it
necessary to postpone the trial of Frank
Scott, the alleged "steerer" for the Mabray
gang of "big store" swindlers, which had
been set for next Monday. Scott's ,trlal Is
now set for 'January 31. The postpone
ment was agrusable to Scott's attorneys,

FIVE LEAGUES RUNMNG CLOSE
Three Teams Are- Sepnrnted tr hnt
Five Games In the Omaha Lrnarn
nnd Others Are Nearly na
With more than half of the season of the
bowling leagues, gone the races In the five
big leagues are very close. In fact. It Is
impossible at this time to attempt to pick
the winner of any of the five. This is
probably due to the fact that many new
bowlers have joined the teams of the
leagues and developed Into very good men
from the start, making It possible for the
weaker teams to greatly strengthen and
be In the race.
In the Omaha league, the oldest organi

The Commercial league has the prettiest,

race at this time of the season.
In the Cellar league but six games sep
arate the Beselln Mixers, now leading and
the Maney Sunklsts, Derby Woolen Mills
and the Excelsiors.
The new Boosters league are also having
an exciting chase. The Yousem Colts have
gone into first place, with the Union Pa

FOOT WORK SAVES O'BRIEN
Philadelphia Jack All hnt Knoeked
Ont by Al Kaafntnnn In
PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 20.Jack O'Brien's
ring, generalship tonight saved him from a
terrible beating and a possible knockout
at the hands, of Al Kaufmann of San Fran
cisco In a six-round bout before the Na
tional Athletio' club tonight.
At the close of the fight both men were
bleeding from the nose and mouth and
O'Brien had a badly-swollen eye; Kauf
mann, however, was In far better condition
than the Phlladelphlan. There was a ted
ious delay in getting started because
Kaufmann Insisted on the gloves being
weighed. After this hitch the men were
soon In action.
O'Brien had once defeated Kaufmann In
San Francisco and the Callfornlan was
a trifle too anxious or he might have
duplicated O'Brien's feat.
When the bell rang for the opening
the men rushed to a clinch and in the
breakaway O'Brien sent two straight lefts
to the nose. Kauffmann rushed his oppon
ent around the ring but O'Brien would
stop suddenly and jolt a hard right or
left to the faco.
There was little damage done In the first
round, but In the second Kauffmann drove
his right under O'Brien's heart and crossed
a lef t to the Jaw, causing O'Brien to
clinoh. The minute rest refreshed O'Brien
wonderfully and he had all the advantage
of the third round. His exertions seemed
to weaken htm, however, and had it not
been for his clinching In the fourth round
O'Brien would have probably been knocked
About the middle of this round Kauff
mann drove a wicked right to the wind
and hooked - a vicious left to the chin.
O'Brien dropped to his knees and when
he arose he rushed to a clinch. His clever
footwork saved him.
In the fifth and sixth rounds O'Brien
would not allow the Callfornlan to get set.
The Phlladelphlan would jab the nose with
left and - then rush to a clinch before
Kauffmann could land with effect. In the
middle of the sixth round Kauffmann
caught O'Brien coming in and almost
lifted him off his feet with a right upper
cut. O'Brien clinched and saved himself.
It Is doubtful whether O'Brien could have
lasted another round, even with all of his
brilliant ' footwork. Kauffmann gave his
weight at 195 pounds, while O'Brien said be
weighed 195 pounds. -

Drake May Drop T I iters.
DES MOINES, Jan. 20. (Special.) Al
though John L. Griffith has not made a
definite announcement, there seems little
doubt that Drake will drop the Missouri
Tigers from its schedule next fall. The
Missouri management has dllly dallied so
much, according to the local version, that
tho blue and white has practically decided
to take on the Kansas Jayhawkers In pref
erence to Missouri.
Kansas will be a better drawing card
than Missouri hero and there is little doubt
that the Drake-Kansas game at Lawrence
will be a greater money maker than the
game at Columbia. Last fall Drake drew
a big crowd at Columbia and the receipts
were only $1,800. The probable date of the
Drake-Kansas game Is October 22.
Cornell has written asking for a game
with Drake, but it is likely that Manager
Griffith will keep the same teams on the
schedule for the preliminary games next
fall, so Coach Finger's fast aggregation
will not be seen on the local gridiron.

The general elections in England begin on January 17 and
continue until February 1. The dispatches each day will report
the progress of the polling, but in addition to the cable news there
will appear in this paper a special series of articles, direct from
England, by FREDERIC J. HASKIN.
It is needless to remind the reader of the importance of
this campaign. Whether the Liberals or the Conservatives win,
the British Constitution will be changed. If the Liberals are
victorious, it means that the Lloyd-George budget will stand, and
that the House of Lords will either be abolished or ao reformed
as to make it entirely ineffective in legislation. If the Conserv
atives win, it means that the House of Lords will be given the
power to veto financial legislation in Parliament, a power not
exercised since the' day of Cromwell and Charles I. Further
more, a Liberal victory will mean the adherence of the British
nation to a program of social reform which includes the prin
ciple of the single-tax and other features which arc termed
"socialistic in America. A Conservative victorv. on the other
hand, will mean
These articles will describe the methods of campaigning
in Engl&nd as contrasted with these ia the United States.
They will explain exactly what the budget is. and why it has
stirred up such a great commotion. They will include amus
ing features of the campaign, such as the heckling of speak
ers, the warfare waged by the militant suffragettes, the
campaigning by noble ladies r and backwoods barons who
have emerged from oblivion for the occasion, and all the
issues and incidents of the great campaign in which the
English people will
ever leit to the verdict of an electorate.

LONG TRIP WITH PASSENGER
Louis Paulhan Takes His Wife on
Twenty-Two-Mile Tour in Air.
TO SEASIDE- AND RETURN
Mrs. Bishop and Two Newspaper Men
Are Also Taken on Shorter
Aerial Jannts Conditions
LOS ANGELES. Cal., Jan. 20. By carry
ing one passenger In his biplane on a
twenty-two mile cross-countrv trip from
Aviation field to a point half a mile out
over the ocean, by taking another passen
ger on a twelve-mile flight over the fields,
and by taking. three other passengers, one
at a time, on short flights, Louis Paulhan
yesterday established a new world's record
for heavler-than-alr machines.
No other aviator has taken up so many
passengers In one day and no other aviator
has taken a woman for a high flight over
fields and woods and villages and surf
for more than twenty miles.
Paulhan sailed at an altitude of from
600 to 1,000 feet over Redondo Beach, Ve-nlce-by-the-Sea
and other resorts toward
Point Firmln. There were no life buoys
tied to the machine to save them from
death in the waves should they fall. He
made this trip and other perilous flights
this afternoon with the ease of a run in
The passenger carrying record Is held by'
Orvllle Wright, who flew with Captain
Engelhardt for one hour and thirty-five
minutes at Berlin last fall, but Wright
did not leave the course where he could
land at will.
Mrs. Panlhan ana Mra. Bishop.
Paulhan was gone thirty-three minutes
on his twenty-two-mlle trip. He had as
a passenger his wife. His twelve-mile trip
was made with Clifford B. Harmon of New
Tork. Besides these, he took up Mrs. Cort
landt W. Bishop, wife of President Bishop
of the Aero club of American, Lieutenant
Paul Beck of the United States Army Sig
nal corps, William Randolph Hearst, a
newspaper publisher, and another . news
The flights were made under perfect at
mospheric conditions. Earlier In the after
noon, the wind had been "puffy" and the
other aviators had gone back to their tents
after trying the course for a few laps.
While the crowd waited patiently In the
burning sunshine, Paulhan went over the
parts of his machine. At 2:27 o'clock he put
on his yellow cloak and helped his wife
up to her high perch. Then he flew out
over the grand stand to give the big crowd
greeting. With their cheers sounding faintly
he left the course on his next lap and
headed for the ocean. In ten minutes he
had become a blur against the sunlit
clouds that curtained the Pacific. At 2:50
o'clock, Paulhan again came in sight, and
at 8 o'clock he landed directly In front of
the grand stand. He received congratula
tions and was taken down the narrow aisle
of frantlo people, so that all could get a
good look at blm.
Dummy Dynamite Bombs.
As he was in sn amiable mood he was
besieged with pleas to take friends up. He
returned to his machine and began to make
this, part of the program.
Lleuteant Beck, on his trip, took dummy
dynamite bombs to, attempt to throw them
from a height to a measured place on the
ground. This was a test made for the bene
fit of the army. While Lieutenant BccTc
was not successful In placing the bombs
within ths square they did not land far
away and It was demonstrated that the
aeroplane could be used for such a pur
pose and that It was only a matter of prac
tice to place the bombs where wanted.
Paulhan's last flight with Mr. Harmon
was not made until 6 o'clock. Again he
disappeared In the direction of the ocean,
but he did not go to the shore. He re
turned after circling the fields in the west,
an approximate distance of twelve miles.

alone of all the nations, now clings. ipTTS
decide the most momentous questions
made In a little more than twenty minutes.
The other aviators did not accomplish
much. Charles K. Hamilton made three
starts in an attempt to lower Paulhan's
altitude record of 4,165 feet On his first
flight Hamilton rose 456 feet, on his second
300 feet and on his third about 600 feet.
Paulhan, on the seashore track, exceeded
this without any effort at record-breaking, j
Hamilton's machine was not working well
enough to encourage him to go higher on
the spiral pathway. i
Glll-Dosch Machine Injnred.
The Glll-Dosch machine met with an ac
cident that eliminates it from any work
tomorrow. This is an American machine
owned by H. W. Gill of Baltimore. It has
been tested out several times, but each
time It 'has met with trouble. This time
the trouble was serious. At a height of
from thirty to 100 feet it circled the field
once, and then came down with a crash
that wrecked the left plane. Hillary
Beachey, the driver, was not Injured,
Glenn H. Curtlss made two appearances.
The first time he went around the course
three times, and the second he tried for a
speed record. His lap was 2:lfi, seven sec
onds from the record.
Tomorrow Is the last day of the meet
Curtlss, Immediately after the meet, will
go to Hammondsport, N. T., to start, work
on a model biplane, a heavier one than he
has used here. He claims that he will dem
onstrate with this new machine that he can
get along without the Wright patent.
