Further investigation of the Indian reser
vation land fraud caaea haa been poet
poned until Tuesday and a host of wit
neaaea has been summoned to appear at
that time before the federal grand Jury.
The Investigations will go back about
three years and involve the validity of
derds given by Indiana of the Omaha tribe
to land speeulatora for valuable lands for
wholly Inadequate considerations. Theae
deeds and contracta were procured from
many of the Indiana prior to the expira
tion of the twenty-five years' trusteeship
of the United Statea In July last to become
effective when the Indians were granted
their patents. Thea patents have been
only recently issued and Include some of
the moet valuable lands of the Omaha In
dian reservation. ,
The Indiana have Just awakened to the
fact that they were swindled and defrauded
la giving these deeds, which they supposed
were mere leases.
It Is alleged that some former Indian
agenta are Implicated tn the frauds, which
could not have been perpetrated but with
their connivance and knowledge. Beveral
expert special agenta of the land depart
ment have been Investigating the matter,

HEART TO HEART TALKS MADE

President Burmester of the city council
gave a dinner to the mayor and councllmen
Thursday evening at Walters oate. mis
was done In response to a resolution of
the city council, passed in a spirit of Josh
some time ago. Mayor Dahlman vetoed
the resolution, but President Burmester
voted with the other members to pass the
resolution over the veto; and lant evening
he made good In handsome fashion.
Mayor Dahlman, aa tho first speaker,
called on by Toastmaster John J. Ryder,
struck the keynote of the gathering when
he said: "Omaha la now experiencing ita
era of nonpartlsanship In city affairs." He
complimented the members of the council
on the businesslike way In which they have
been discharging their dutlea and paid high
compliment to the host of the occasion for
his fair and gentlemanly conduct In a diffi
"While the council has handed me sev
eral vetoes of vetoes," said tha mayor, "I
feel Ita every action haa been along the
lines that seemed to the members best for
the good ofthe city. So far aa I am
concerned, there is no sore spot; on the
contrary, I feel we can flatter ourselves
that there is very little ground far com
plaint about the way the business of the
city haa been done. We are handicapped,
of course, by the unwise, inelastic provi
sions of our city charter, but the citizens
whose good opinion we want understand
that fact pretty thoroughly by thla time.
It la not flattery, but a statement of fact,
to say to you that tha present council Is
open to legs criticism than any other coun
cil we have had In twenty years, the public
business la conscientiously attended to,
and despite kick now and again, the city
is cleaner and more prosperous than at
any other time in its htHtory."
All Coanrllsuea Talk.
Following the mayor's talk, tho toast-
master called on every member of the
council in turn. Every one of them gave
the other eleven heart-to-heart talk. They
all told their real namea. aa the aaylng la,
admitting that at that time they had mis
understood each other, perhaps; but In no
case that any of them could recall had
there been a hint of anything but a strict
consideration for the city's Interests In the
All the councllmen agreed that the city
charter ahould be revised at the coming
session df the legislature, carefully and
with a view to the Increasing needs of a
growing city. They also tossed a unani
mous bouquet to President Burmester for
his unwavering fairness and the exercise of
patience and good common aenae. It was
also agreed that a similar function ahall
hereafter be a fixed event, to be given by
the presiding officer, whoever he may be.
Toastmaster Ryder remarked, toward the
close, that ha had been trying all evening
to call on the neat president of the council,
and believed he had aucreeded, although
not yet at liberty to dtacloea the name.
Each councilman aald be thought the toast
master had achieved his desire, and they
severally accepted the duty of providing
a similar fraat whenever called upon.
Councilman Brucker was very modest n
hla declaration, but he brought a big round
of applause when he said. "If It ahould be
me I will endeavorto outdo what Burmester
has done, and that'a aaylng more, maybe,
than a quiet man should say." I
it waa midnight when tha gathering
biuke up, and jettlerday the ounctlmn
were shaking hands over the renewal of
faith tn each other.
Highway Engineer Here for Conven
tion Discusses Methods Praise
for Dougas County Roads.
"FTom what I saw in The Bee while com
lng to Omaha on the train, I Judge your
city engineer and Commercial club have
taken the right method to get up a suc
cessful good roads meeting," said A. N.
Johnson, state engineer of Illinois, in
charge of highways. He arrived in Omaha
at 12:18 and was the guest of City En
gineer Craig at the Commercial club.
Discussing the system adopted In Illi
nois, and which will probably furnish the
basis for a law to be offered in the next
session of the Nebraska legislature, Mr.
"We have a merely advisory organization
in Illinois,' the engineer being the only paid
official on tbe highway commission. We
haven't nearly enough men or equipment
to meet the demands made on us for help
In getting proposed Improved roads started;
yet fair progress Is being made. In cer
tain parts of the state a very good start
has been made, and aentlment In favor of
better, or the best, roads Is steadily grow
ing. "Our commission has in charge Beveral
road building outfits, the property of the
state, which we aend out to different
places calling for them as rapidly as pos
sible. We also have a traction hauling out
fit, but the present equipment must be very
largely increased before we can meet the
demand. There are no paved roada in Illi
nois, such as I understand you have here
in Douglaa county to some extent."
While in the employ of the United States
government, Mr. Johnson built a sample
piece of good road at Auburn, Neb. It
has been a source of pride to those who
secured Its construction. Mayor Port and
some other Auburn people are to be at
thla meeting In Omaha.
Mr. Johnson apoke last night at Beatrtoe
on the subject of good roads. The Com
mercial club of that city engaged him, and
he reports a very successful meeting waa
held. "The Commercial club of Beatrice,
like all progressive organlzationa, reallxes,"
said Mr. Johnson, "that good roads In the
vicinity of a town and leading thertto are
a valuable asset; that they mean some
thing to the business men and aid ma
terlally In drawing trade and thus Increas
ing the prosperity of the section In which
they are built. This campaign is growing

Dubious of City
South Omaha Concern Would Like to
Back Out of Agreement to Write
Policy on Low Bid.
The O'Neill Insurance company of South
Omaha is showing a disposition to back
out of ita agreement to Insure the Omaha
city hall and Ita furnishings. The city of
ficials refuse to let go of the certified
check for (300 that accompanied the O'Neill
bid. If the company refuses to accept the
contract as awarded to It by the council,
the city will declare the check forfeited.
At the time bids were asked for insuring
the city hall there were about a dozen bid
ders. All of the Omaha insurance firms

stuck very close to an apparently agreed
rate. The O'Neill company aent In an offer
to place the $XO,000 risk for three years at
the lump sura of $1,300. Some hesitancy
waa ahown by the council committee to ac
cept the bid, the feeling being that some
local firm should get the plum. Finally,
though, the bid of the South Omaha firm
waa accepted and It waa so notified, as
City Clerk Butler and City Comptroller
Do beck assert.
Now comes a representative of the O'Neill
agency and says they were not notified;
that tbe ctty of Omaha has been remiss tn
accepting Its tender, and that maybe the
Insurance cannot be taken at- the rate
"Oh, ho," aay the Omaha officials, in
chorus. "Wonder what haa come over the
O'Neill agency. It la possible that the other
Insurance agenta have persuaded the Houth
Omaha firm Ita bid In too lorn? Maybe so.
Anyway, we'll hold thla check for S20O. Just
as an evidence of good faith, and If O'Neill
lets' go, why we'll turn it li to the treaau y "
In the meantime. Is the city hall and Its
furnishings Insured? Comptroller Lobeck
and Clerk Butler believe that It Is, from
the moment the bid was accepted by the
council and the record made of the award.
