DAHLMAN lEN WAKE UP
Friends of local leader See light on
Extra Session Move.
TO GIVE G0VEE3T0E A CLUB
With Initiative and Referendum on
the Statute Book Shallebrer
Backer , Feel They Would
Have Better Chance.
Friends of Mayor Dahlman are beginnlng
to evince some anxiety as to the underly
ing reaaon for the desperate efforts being1
made to nave Governor Bhallenberger call
an extra session of thastate legislature.
They have finally flgureif It out that the
move Is lh the Interest of Shallenberger's
own candidacy for reuomlnatlon and elec
tion. "Some of our friends In different parts
of the stat,e have'slgned the petition," said
a warm supporter of the mayor, "evidently
without giving It much consideration. The
extra session boosters Insist they desire
only to havo the party pass the Initiative
and referendum law. In the naturkl course
of events the enactment of that law could
very well be left for the next regular
srsslon of the legislature.
"But there's where the rub Comes. Men
who are urging ths extra session are
friends of the governor, and want hlra
re-vlected, some for the purpose of hang
ing onto their offices, others for different
reasons. They feel that after the way he
has broken his promises to the liquor men,
the business men and the trades unionists
Bhallenberger has little chance to win out
as matters stand. Hence they figure that
if they get the Initiative and referendum
on the statute bookIt will be much easier
to whip the liquor Interests and corpora
tlons Into line. There's the secret of the
extra session movement."
In this connection It will be recalled jta
Mayor Dahlman, Tom Plynn, the Douglas

time, aches, ails, trouble."

habit for some people.

county senators and several ' oia. mem
bers of the legislature have declared them
selves aa absolutely opposed to an extra
sston. And In this v view City Comp
troller Lobeck and other party leaders
who are not Identified with the Dahlman
wing of the party oolnclde.
Now that they have finally awakened to
the real significance of the Allen-Mullen
move, the entl-optlon democrats of Douglas
county have succeeded In enlisting the
active support of the local democratic
organ In an endeavor to have the extra
session stalled off.
While viewing this strife City Comp
troller Lobeck has not yet filed his declara
tion as a candidate ' for Congressman
Hitchcock's seat. He has not said he will
not file, however, and continual pressure
Is being brought to bear onhlm Vy friends
to get In the game early.

BEEF TRUST PROSECUTION
MAY HAVE INNING HERE
Likely to Give Some Work to Omaba
Officials of DfSHtntst
Although no specific Inetructtons have
been received at the office of the United
States district attorney In Omaha, relative
to the proceedings to be instituted against
the beef trust to aacei ta!n If It Is respons
ible for the maintenance of the present high
prices of fresh meats, theOmaha branoh
of the Department of Justice expects to
take some part In the Investigations, as It
did In the bef trust cases a few years
ago, when a great mass of testimony was
taken here b)- the government and sub
mitted In Chicago.
The gist of the testimony secured before
the grand Jury In Omaha three years ago
was in relation to the attempts of the beef
trust to stifle competition by freeslng out
the smaller meat retailers, and witnesses
appeared before the grand Jury from all
parts of the state. Managers of the several
packing houses of South Omaha were also
haled before the grand jury. The hearings
at Omaha ranked second In Importance to
those at Chicago.
It Is for this reaaon that the Department
of Justice officials In Omaha believe that
Omaha will again become an Important
factor In the proposed prosecution of ths
beef trust, being nearer the surface of
original supply than even Chicago.

By decree of district court the heirs of
Count John A. Creighton are to receive
$76,000 of the $160,000 residue of the estate
and the working girls' home is to get
$86,000. . .
The three judges of the court who gave
the decision Saturday morning held, first,
that the tenth paragraph of the will, which
makes a $60,000 bequest for the working
girls' home. Is valid. It was contended foi
the heirs that this clause of the will Is
vague, indefinite and uncertain, leaving1
a doubt as to the whole Intent of the tes
tator;, particularly as to who the bene
ficiaries should be.
The Judges disagreed with the assertion,
saying that the object of the bequest was
clear enough, and that details of the
scheme can be worked out satisfactorily
by the trustees.
The second question before the court In
volved the thirteenth paragraph of the will.
It Is this clause which devises the residue
of the estate'.
It was In contention whether or not the
working girls' home Is one of the speolflo
legatees to whom the residue is devised.
The court held that It Is.
The third question before the court grew
out of the second and was the really per
plexing one of the throe. It was how the
residua of $110,400 was to be cut up.
Kealdae a Perplexing Qneatlnn.
Count Creighton In his will bequeathed
any residue there might be to all spsclfio
legatees mentioned In bis will In such pro
portion as eaoh legacy bore to the whole
estate. Had he bequeathed the residue In
such proportion as eaoh legacy bore to the
whole amount devised and this Is un
doubtedly what Count Creighton Intended
to do there would have been nothing for
the sixteen heirs In the way 'of residue.
The difference may be Illustrated thus:
A man with an estate of $1,000 bequeathes
the sum of $100 to A, $100 to B and $100 also
to C, D, and E. There Is left a residue
of $!00. Now each specific bequest is one
fifth of the total amount devised, but only
one-tenth of the whole estate.
Imte specific legatees get a share of the
residue In such proportion as each legacy
la ths whole amount devised, this share Is
$100 each; in proportion to ths whole es
tate, the share Is $50 each.
Count Creighton Intended, said the three
Judges, to make his will the first way, but
actually did It the second. All three Judges,
Redlck, Troup and Estelle, expressed regret
that the order of the court must follow
the plain meaning of Count Creighton's
will as wrlttrn, although the testator In
tended to do something o(her than he did.
Heirs All Omakana hut One.
The $7f000 which Is left for the heirs will
be divided among fifteen men and women,
who are these:
John D. Creighton, Martha C. Ittoyre,
Katherlne C. McGinn, Catherine M. Furey,
Ellen M- Cannon, James H. McShana, John

The Bowline cams from Clarlnda a few
days ago to enjoy a teason of slght-seclng
In Omaha. They Were to begin their
Journey In South Omaha. They started
out early in the morning, accompanied by
Maggie Fryson and Sam Faglns, also col
ored. Now, early rising Is not one of the things
on which Mamie Bowlin Just dotes; there
are other things she likes better. For In
stance, she would rather take her beauty
rleep along about that time of day.
However, the party started out early and
by the hour of 7 a. m. had ;ot as far on
the Journey as Fourteenth and Douglas
streets. Whereupon Mamie Bowlin set one
of her feet down with emphaslfc and pro

to the Maglo City at gny such hour. Say
ing which, she left her companions and
went whither they knew not.
That broke tip the .South Omaha expedi
