The hearing Is bring ield before Judge

) Wheeler, why is presiding at this term
if district, oouit, having oicnressod the wish
.hat nume Judge outside of the city hear
:he case,
Array of Lawyers.
The state Is represented by Attorney
general 11. W. Byers and his assistant,
lohn Fletcher, formerly of Avoca. V.
Lyngby, former Danish vice consul of this
.-ity, Is also assisting Mr. Myers and oceu
ties a seat at the tablo with the state's
ittorneys. Malor Richmond la represented
ay Kmmet Tinley. George S. Wright,
Judgu J. H. Heed and V. W. Miller.
The case was Htt fur S:C0 o'clock, but
Jiidge Woodruff was an hour late In ar
"vlng from Olenwood. By the time court
speliud the court room was crowded. In
side, the rajling were many members of
:h bar, while in the audience could be
teen a nupiber of the pastors of the city
jliurche and men from ull ranks of life.
At the' opening Attorney TInlcy, after
Hr. ' Fletcher hud read the Information, or
till of complaint, outlining the charges
igalt.st Chief Richmond, offered a motion
.o transfer. rho action from the equity to
lie law docket and asked" that It be tried
x fore a Jury. In presenting the motion
ilr.Tinley contended that charges refer
ring to matters alleged to have taken
Jluce before the statute under which the
i oeeedltifcs were brought went Into effect
ere properly triable before a Jury, that
.laving been tho procedure In removal pro
seeding prior to the enactment of what Is
mown as the Uofsuii law.
Attorney Ururral Resists.
Ii,. resisting the motion Attorney General
lei. ipioted the statute, which-provides
.hut mi action such as had been Instituted'
gainst Chief Richmond "thatl be sum
nary in Its nature arid triable as an equit
' ihltr action, and may be heard either in
lacBtloc or letm time, and shall be heard
jcfoie the court or Judge without the lnter
.cntion of a Jury." Mr. llyera further con-e-idld
that all the questions raised by
Ik. motion had been determined by the
ova supreme court In the case of Mayor
Henderson of Marengo, against whom ous
:er proceedings had been Instituted on the
iharge of intoxication. j
Jutlge Woodruff promptly overruled the
notion, saying: "It la possible this ques
tion may he one for decision by the su
preme court. However. I do not feel that,
a court would be warranted In setting
aside a statute so broad In Its prov isions."
With the overruling of the motion to
transfer the case to the law docket the
Mate at once Introduced Its first wltnes,
Myia Stevenson, whose resort on Weft
Uroadway was recently raided by the
police aid against whom the district court
grand Jury at this term returned two Indict
ments. The witness, who swore to one
of the affidavits filed by the state In the
action against Major Richmond, admitted
that she considered the accused officer re
sponsible for the Indictments returned
against her.
Monthly Fines Paid.
Her olreot examination, which occupied
the entire forenoon session, related solely to
the monthly "fines" which she paid, both
for herself and the women in her several
establishments. She testified to conducting
houses of lllfame at different times at 307
West llrdadvray. SI" West Broadway, 6:i
South Main street. 61! West Broadway and
JlilVj West Broadway. Receipts were offered
In evidence showing she had paid a monthly
fine of $12 for herself a. a madame" and
i a month for each of the women in her
houses. She testified that die had sold
liquor and that she had kept money slot
machines in her places. The witness testi
fied to paying similar fines to chiefs of
police previous to Major Richmond becom
ing head of the police department.
Redaction of the Itond.
The defense then introduced as evidence
the court records showing that on March
23, the day the witness signed the affidavit
against Major Richmond, Attorney General
Byers appeared before Judge Wheeler in
district court and Judge Wheeler, "on the
recommendation of the attorney general,"
reduced the bond under the Indictment
charging the Stevenson woman with main
taining a house of lllfame from $KW to
and that under tho indictment charging the
unlawful sale of liquor from -M to $i"0.
Mrs. Jessie Miller, who until recently con
ducted a resort at 613 West Broadway, testi
fied to paying the regular schedule of
"fines" continuously since 1SS8 and to sev
eral chiefs of police prior to Major Rich
mond assuming the office.
Some amusement was afforded when At
torney General flyers asked the witness.
"How old ore you Mrs. Miller?"
"That Is a leading question," replied the
witness and the bailiff had to rap for
order.
"Well I won't press the question." said
the attorney general and once more the
baliff had to rap.
In answer to a question from Mr. Byers
what she expected In leturn for the pay
ment of the monthly fines, the witness said
she supposed she was to receive "protec
tion" in the conduct of her business.
' Rev. John William Jones, rector of St.
Paul's Kplsropal church, who on his first
arrival In Council Bluffs took a decidedly
prominent part In (he movement to reform
the morals of the community, testified to
calling upon Major Richmond and that the
latter had explained to him the system of
monthly fines Imposed upon the women of
the town as part of the method the city
had in regulating the social evil.
Rev. Jamea M. Wllllamn, pastor of Broad
way Methodist church, and one of the lead
ing members of the Ministerial association
told of several conferences ho had held
with the chief relative to the social evil
and other matters pertaining to the moral
welfare of the community. Rev. Mr. Wil
llama had no hesitation In saying that the
moral atmosphere of the city Had been
greatly improved under the; administration
of Major Richmond and that at present
and for some time past It was vastly better
than It had been In the years past.
Attorney D. E. btuart testified to the
manner In which the saloons of the city
had In the past been conducted in violation
of the law, but that for a year or more
they had been adhering Btrictly to the pro-
vislona of the mulct law.

thousands of women declare they owe their very lives to it,
is it not reasonable to believe that it is an article of great

We challenge the world to show any other one remedy

enormous demand and maintained it for so many years as
has Lydia E.Pinkh&m's Vegetable Compound, the famous
woman's remedy for woman's ills. Unless it is a very good

(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, April 6.-(SpeclaJ.)-Armed
with ammunition of the enemy, hla excel
lency Governor Ash ton T. Shallenbergrr Is
marshalling his forces to charge the lion
In his den. The deadly weapon which he
win uae almost exclusively will be "four-
flusher."
The governor will us the word "four-
flusher" in quotations because that word
waa used by the mayor In his description
of his excellency when the t o'clock closing
law was signed and before that when both
were candidates for the democratic nom
ination. The fact that Mayor Dahlman did
not denounce the S o'clock closing law In
his recently promulgated platform, In the
opinion of the governor, has placed his
honor In the "four-flushing" class.
I shall certainly campaign Douglas
county for votes before the primary," said
Governor Shallenberger. "I shall do my
best to get every vole that I posnlbly can.
Insofar as the liquor question Is concerned
Mayor Dahlman and I aland squarely on
the same platform. He Is against county
option and so am I, and we are both for
the 8 o'clock closing law. Consequently,
both of us standing on that platform, it
seems to me there Is no reason why the
people of Omaha should vote against me
In the primary."
The governor has not yet set a date for
las campaign in Omaha.

conference, today with operators of the
Pittsburg district was satisfactory and al
though no definite action was taken It ap
peared likely that the operators would

Business of Correspondence School
with Pupils Regarded as Interstate
Commerce by Supreme Court.
. WASHINGTON, April 6. The business of
a correspondence school with pupils In
various states is Interstate commerce. Such
was the opinion of the supreme court of
the United States announced today by Jus
tice Harlan In the case of the International
Text Book company of Sctanton, Pa.,
against A. T. Pigg of Topeka, Kan.
In the same case 'the court declared un
constitutional' section 12S3 of the laws of
Kansas, requiring corporatlqns seeking to
do business In the state to file a prescribed
certificate with the state official and upon
failure to do so close the doors of the state
courts to them.
The International Text Book company
employed an agent to solicit students In
Kansas to take correspondence courses In
Its school In Pennsylvania. Plgg executed
a contract in WOO in Topeka. Kan., to take
such a course, but subsequently failed to
today to attend the conference, but he 1 pay all the tuition required.
hopes to participate In the later negotia
tions. In speaking of the general situation
he said tonight:
"The mining situation gives no one cause
for alarm. There Is every llkllhood that
the Hocking district contract of Ohio, will
be signed up tomorrow at Columbus. Every
other section In that state will then fol
low in rapid succession, with the possible
exception of Eastern Ohio and Crokesvllle,
where there may be some delay in arrang
ing the details of the wage contract.
"In my opinion, the situation In western
Pennsylvania will be cleared up long before
I he end of April. This will assist ma
terially in getting central Pennsylvania
straightened out. If they have not In the
meantime reached an agreement. The
Kanawha district of West Virginia and
western Kentucky will soon be settled.
This Is also true In the bituminous districts
of Indiana, Michigan and Iowa. I have
not been In any way alarmed regarding the
situation from the very start of negotia
tions. Our prediction that there would be
ro geenral strike In the mining Industry
will be more than vindicated."
Colorado Operatora Refuse Demand.
DENVER. April !. Operators of the
northern Colorado coal fields today re
fused to grant the demands of the United
Mine Workers of America for an advunce
of 6.5 per cent for day work and ah In
crease of S cents a ton for machine mined
and of 4 cents a ton for pick mined coal.
The strike Inaugurated Saturday will con
tinue indefinitely.
The operators announce, however, that
their mines will be reopened In a few days.
The old men will be given a chance to
come back and if they do not return non
union men will be Imported to take their
places.
The operators signed an ironclad agree
ment to introduce "open eh'ip" methods In
their mines.
When the suit was brought against PlKB
the answer made was that the company
was a foreign corporation for profit and
that it was transacting business In Kansas
without having compiled with the require
ments of the state of Kansas of such cor
porations. '
Justice Harlan, in the opinion of the
court, held that "in our Judgment in its
essential character there was commerce
among the states within the meaning of
the constitution."
He held th section of the statute Inter
fered with Interstate commerce.

STELZLE WARMLY WELCOMED
Ur. I.eo Frankel Talks to Visiting;
A nrae. Educators Heard a
Child Labor Committee
Meeting.
-iuiy.- ' -V.
Monday was "sociological" day In Omaha,
so far as public meetings were concerned.
Men and women Interested In altruistic
phases of human endeavor had opportunity
to attend a guod many sessions where
prominent workers and speakers were to be
met and heard, several being from out of
town.
That working women of the country and
Immigrant women coining In are In greater
need of moral and material aid than men,
Is the view of Rev. Charles Stelzle, super
intendent of the Presbyterian department
of church and labor In his address at the
Young Men's Christian association Tues
day night. Dr. Stelzle's subject was "Work-
Ingmen and Their Conditions."
With slereoptlcon views to Illustrate his
words, the speaker set forth the most dis
tressing side of life among Immigrants, as
It appears In the great cities of the country.
"The problem of the future Is the city,"
declared Mr. Stelzle. From the scene of
their oppression In Russia and through the
various stages of their Journey to America,
Mr. Stelzle, with his pictures and narra
tive, traced the course of the Russian Im
migrants. These, he said, formed the great
est horde of any one nationality seeking
the shores of the United States as a haven.
Fate' of Immigrants.
The speaker then showed that In America
at the' present time the Immigrants are
finding life scarcely better. If at all, than
what they left behind. He spoke of unsani
tary tenements, grinding poverty and the
heart-breaking work In which mothers and
children are forced to take a part as fig
uring disastrously In the condition of im
migrants in American cities.
Mr. Stelzle then explained how the de
partment with which he Is connected Is
conducting a model Sunday school and
social settlement In New York at a cost of
$0,000 a year. Sunshine and good cheer for
the heavily burdened women was the prin
ciple of the organization, he said.
Dr. D. E. Jenkins, president of the Omaha
university. Introduced the speaker. Mr
Stelzle departed for .New York shortly
after the lecture.
The Nebraska child labor committee, tc
the number of twenty-five, sat down to
dinner at the You in Men's Christian as
sociation at S o'clock, with Rev. Charles
Stelzle and Prof. Lucilo Eaves of the Uni
versity of Nebraska as special guests ol
honor.
After the dinner short speeches wert
made by several of those present, Mrs.
Draper Smith acting as presiding officer.
Dr. Leo Frankel urged renewed activity
on behalf of the bill now pending In con
gress to create a children's bureau In th
Department of the Interior. Superin
tendent Davidson of the Omaha schonli
discussed the best method of handling the
odd children who does not thrive well In
school. He advocated the establishment ol
a special school in which manual training
shall have Increasing attention through
several grades, resulting eventually In
boys and girls' acquiring real trades, even
If it be necessary to add a two years'
rade training to the education along ths
lines of the liberal arts.
Prof. Kavea elaborated on Dr. David
son's thought, pleading for a wl.se voca
tional training, and the Instituting In the
United States of the "continuing school."
such as now exists in Germany and some
other countries of Europe. These schools
the children who have not been able to
finish the regular courses of study are
compelled to attend until they attain a
certain proficiency. She urged the neel
for a more extended study of vocational
school needs and the putting into practi
cal operation, through public sentiment, of
the wisest conclusions that can be reached
on the subject by trained Investigators.
Miss Ida V. Jontti gave some Interesting
facts touching the 'help given from the
public purse and by private contributions
to children who cannot afford to attend
school as long as they should because of
the demands of the home for their earn
ings as workers. Her figures Indicated
that the scheme has worked quite success
fully in several of ths states where It
has been put Into operation.
The following officers were elected:
President, Judge Howard Kennedy; first
vice, Miss Luclle Eaves, Lincoln; second
vice. Mrs. H. L. Ktefe, Walthlll; secretary
treasurer, John J. Ryder.
A vote of thanks was given to Dr.
George E. Howard, retiring president, who
