prom at Chambers'.
That few men are really keen about
classical music waa evident at a recent
concert given by a well-known German
. artist.
Society waa well represented at this
affair, that is the feminine contingent waa,
but most of the men, aa usual, found It
convenient to have other engagements. The
men, however, give an excellent excuse;
that after a strenuous day of business they
prefer hearing something amusing than to
listen' to a heavy program and return
home with "brain fag." The male attend-
ance the other evening averaged about
one to each row of seats.
The pre-Lenten ruah of social affairs la
now fairly started. A large reception and
aeveral bridge parties were given last wesk
a ad numerous affairs are planned for next
week. Besides the parties on the calendar
several large functions are planned, but
"the dates have not been decided definitely.
One or two more large receptions are
planned and some, evening bridge suppers.
Two military hops during the last week
were well attended by Omaha guests Fri
day night at Fort Crook and, Saturday
evening at Fort Omaha. (

Pierre Business Men Investigating
Difference la Eaat and West
i Chargee.
PIERRE. S. D.. Jan. IS. (Special. I The
question of coal rates from the. Wyoming
mines to South Dakota points was again
up for discussion before the Business
Men's club of this city at its dinner today.
John Hays, a coal dealer of Fort Pierre,
gave the meeting the benefit of what -he
haa learned in the way of coal ratea. The
Northwestern road makes a coal rate of
I'. SO a ton from Chicago to Wolaey, a dis
tance of a little under 700 miles, then adds
$1.20 to the rate for bringing It to Pierre
or Fort Pierre, another 100 miles. This puts
coal down here at a rate of M a ton from
Chicago. On coal from the Sheridan dis
trict In ! Wyoming, the Burlington road
delivers it at Rapid City for $2.50 a ton
and the Northwestern road makes a rate
of 13.40 a ton from Rapid City to Pierre, a
distance of less than 200 miles. This makes
the Wyoming coal cost nearly 12 a ton
mora on frrlght than eastern coal, with
a haul of much less than half the dis
tance. This matter was especially exem
plified In the matter of five cars of Wy
oming coal which the state purchased at
the time when Jt looked an If the switch-
men's strike would cut off the supply from
that dlrectlpn. Bcs'.de the freight charge
;the time In bringing in the Wyoming prod
uct was greater than used In securing coal
from the east. It is alleged by those who
know that the Chicago officials of the road
have been requested to make a reason
able rate from Rapid City to the Missouri
! river, but declined to make any change in
I the existing rate.

John O'Connor of Fremont was In Omaha
last night seeking"" assistance of the
Omaha police to apprehend a swindler who
gives the name Henry G. Flf-chrr.
Mr. O'Connor, who was regisur of deeds
in Podge county for many years. Is out
hard cash because of the man'e Meek
operations. Fischer negotiated a loan yes
terday on a forged deed to a farm and
decamped with the rash.
Fischer came to Fremont and pretended
to be seeking a farm. He said he wanted
about eighty acres and that he was going
to buy It for his si;n-in-law. He looked
over several places and finally decided lie
wanted an eighty-acre tract a few miles
from the town of Dodse. He consulted
with Mr. O'Connor about the matter and
asked for a loan on the rlace. s the farm
was worth the price asked. 1150 per acre.
there was no question about the vaiue oi
the security and Mr. O Connor agreed to
let the man have the money.
Yesterday afternoon F.scher appeared In
Fremont at Mr. O'Connor's office with the
bstract and deed apparently made out on
regular blanks and certified to by a notary.
Undue and sealed with the notary's
official seal. Mr. O'Connor looked over
the papers and, being somewhat acquainted
ith the signature of the farmer whose
land wan supposed to be mentioned In the
transaction and knowing the notary's sig
nature well, he naturally concluded the
papers were all right and wrote out a
check on a Fremont bank for $3,000, the
mount Ftscher said he wanted to borrow
on the land. The notes and mortgages
were made out and all the papers In the
transaction were taken to tha county court
house and duly recorded?
It was the understanding between Fischer
and O'Connor that Mr. O'Connor was to
receive a commission for his services In
the IratmacliuM uf the business and for the
loan of the money. Mr. O'Connor had In
tended loaning an insurance company's
money for his client, but not being able to
get the money at once, he concluded to let
Fischer have hla private funds, which he
would replace later with money from a
prominent Insurance company for which
e was agent. Mr. O'Connor haa been in
the real estate business for a long time
and Is well posted In all the details of aucb
The commission was to be paid at 4
clock, but when the time came no Fischer
appeared on the scene. O'Connor became
anxious and finally called up the notary
at Dodge and questioned that official about
the deed and the abstract. The notary
denied ever having made out the papers.
O'Connor called up the farmer, whose name
Is BUIlbeck, and the farmer declared he
had no Intention of selling his place and
had made no deeds to the same, .
Inquiry revealed that Fischer had cashed
the check at the Fremont bank, getting the
currency and leafing the city on the train
that departa from the Union station at
Fremont at 2:15. It was presumed that
Fischer came to Omaha. Telegrams were
sent in alL directions in an effort to catch
the wily fellow. Mr. O'Connor came to
Omaha aa aoon as possible, and the detec
tives and patrolmen were Instructed to look
out for Fischer.- ' ,." '
Well Known Criminal.
In looking through tha rogues' gallery at
the police station in Omaha, O'Connor
found Fischers photograph: The picture
and circular accompanying it were sent
out several years ago from Qulncy, III. At
that time the same game hud been worked
on a dealer tn real estate in Qulncy. A
complete description of the methods of the
swindler waa given, and Mr. O'Connor at
once recognised the smooth stranger and
his methods.
Fischer represented to the notary at
Dodge that he had some railroad bonds
that he wanted to transfer and he had the
notary impress his official aeal on the
bonds. Then coming to Omaha ' or some
other city he had a seal made which is an
exact duplicate of the original. He found
out something ot the style of handwriting
pf Mr. BUIlbeck, the farmer with whom
he talked in regard to the sale of the
land, and being a Bmooth forger, he had
little trouble in 'duplicating the handwrit
ing of the farmer. The blanks he could
easily buy of the local stationers or
printers. ' He paid for the abstract and
for recording the papers.
Fischer haa a number of aliases. In the
description sent out from Qulncy he was
named as John L. Butler, alias John
Hoover, alias John II. Kline. He ia about
66 years of age, weighs 180 pounds, , is
smoothly shaven, has gray hair. He poses
as a farmer and Is well posted on farming
Mr. O'Connor feels the loss of his money
especially, in view of the fact that he
has had so much experience in real estate
matters. Finally v to get caught by a
awlndler ot this sort has made him feel
quite dejected. From he record ot Fischer,
as given In the police reports, he has
fleeced a number of men in the same way
he secured the 3,000 from O'Connor.

MITCHELL, 8. D., Jan. 2J (Special.)
The chances are that John Plrkey. will not
have to serve his term of three years In
th penitentiary, to which he waa sentenced
by Judge Smith at the term of court in
Lyman county on the charge of horse steal
ing. Three years ago Plrkey was arrested
for stealing twenty-one head of horses In
Nebraska and driving them Into South
Dakota. He was convicted of the charge
and hla attorneys, Preston St. Hannett, made
application for a new trial, claiming that
the Judge had made errors in the trial of
the case. Judge Smith dented, a new trial
and the case was taken to the supreme
court, and the judgment of the lower court
was affirmed, two of the supreme Judges
affirming the decision and one being
against. The attorneys tried another tack,
and made application for a rehearing. In
the meantime the supremW court personnel
had been changed to sortie extent by the
