Judge Sutton refuses just now to discuss
his action, saying that bo will explain
h s Masons when lie makes a formal ruling
early In the week.
A man close to the court slves it as his
opinion that Judge Sutton thinks a find
ing of guilty of .murder in the second de
gree was excessive and that manslaughter
should have been the limit. Also It Is be
lieved that Judge Sutton thinks that the
Jury was Influenced by hostility to the
corporation which employed Kgan, nud

honey and J. A. C. Kennedy, to defend
loonty Officials Silent.
Kgan was prosecuted ny Iteputv r.iur.tv

the former being the most active in the
trial of the case. Mr. KUIck refuses to dis
cuss the decision of Judge Sutton and
neither will County Attorney English say
anything for publication on the matter.
The verdict against Bgan was reached
last February following a ten-day trial,
which was the hottest and most closly con
tested the criminal branch of district court
had known since Mrs. Atta Banner was
up for shooting her brother-in-law. Egan,
the testimony showed, shot and killed Enos
J. Daly, a former employe of the plant of
Armour & Co. In South Timaha, in April
of 1908. Daly had made his way Into the
plant In a more or less Intoxicated condi
tion. Egan was notified that a man was
in the plant and was sent to eject him.
In tho ensuing trouble a bullet from his
revolver found Its way Into Daly's body
with fatal result. The defense asserted
that the shooting was an accident.

Of all the prominent men gathered at

attracted more attention than Trof. G. W.
I. a Torne. whose new kardene treatment
for chills and frr and all forms of
malaria has been no successful.
While kardene is known as a blood
purifier and liver Invlgorator. its value as
a curs for malarial attacks was not recog
nized until recently. It.s use la growing
rapidly, not only because of its wonderful
merit, but also on account of Its low
cost. You can make a full quart of kar
d no tonic by dissolving one ounce of
kardene and , tiacupful of sugar In
pint of alcohol and thn adding n pints
of boiling water. The dose is a tuble-
poonful before each meal ami before re

Next Friday, April 13. is the date on
which the second Installment of occupation
taxes will be due from the Omaha public
service corporations. This second payment
will cover four months, December, January,
February and March, and Is expected to
put a substantial sum of money in the
Originally the ordinances provided that
payments were to be made quarterly, on
the first of December, March, June and
September. At the time the first quarter's
payment was due it was found that to foot
up the business of the corporations and
make correct return was practically Impos
sible. Hence ordinances were introduced
amending the originals, to make returns
from the companies fall due on the luth
of the months mentioned, beginning with
April. The amendatory ordinances were
passed, giving the companies fifteen days
after the close of each month's business In
which to compile their returns.

Mrs. Souiieribei-M has received assurance
from the Visiting Nurse association that
the work of the committee Is to receive
the support of that organization. The plan
for the annex contemplates room for about
100 additional patients. The hospital has
secured an option on an adjoining lot on

OPPORTUNITY THROUGH PROBE
o ed to Listen to Dictation of Illi
nois Town Board When Primary
Market Can Be Created In
Now Is Omaha's chance to get the butter
"This Is l he logical time for Omaha to
reach out and simply take It," said David
Cole when the declaration for an investiga
tion of the Elgin butter board by Attorney
General Wlckersham was called to his at
tention. "Nothing more Is needed than for the
Omaha men to get together. Omaha is as
logically the seat of the butter market as
the corn market which we have. We are
located In the heart of the corn territory,
also we are the greatest producers of, but
ter in the country. We have the goods to
tell, why not sll it here?
"There; is nothing else to It but the mere
concerted action of the Omaha producers
and dealers. The butter market can be
"The Commercial club is up and ready
to do anything that can be done to aid In
the location of the market here. Omaha
doeis not need to listen to the dictation of
the Elgin board on butter prices and it
remains only a question of bringing the
buyers here. We have the producer!."
.NLrptlcal of Combine.
Mr. Cole is of the opinion that the record
prices of poultry now prevailing In Omaha
W cents a pound for dressed chickens, Ih
due entirely to the high price of egg. He.
however, does not believe, he says, that
there is a combine for th cornering of
eggs for siorage purposes
"It is simply a question of supply and
demand. They fcan'l corner the egs," said
Mr. Cole. "There are not enough people
out on the farms laising hens and pro
ducing eggs, that's all."
The present poultry prices, which con
stitute a record In the history of the Omaha
and Chicago markets are to prevail at
least for a week longer, and probably be
yond that. Sohedules trsued for the next
week continue the record quotations.
Shipments of eggs to the east continue,
according to retail dealers observing the
market. The rumor persists that a Chicago
firm is operating a "squeeze" In eggs.

Only Complete Collection Remaining
from Transmississippi Show
The only complete collection of the of
ficial badges of the Transmississippi ex
position was stolen from the Public
library late Friday afternoon. The artful
manner In which the wall caBe containing
the collection was removed from Its fast
enings Indicates an exact knowledge of the
secret wiring which forms a part of the
protective system of the museum. No
alarm was sounded and the loss was only
discovered when tho vacant spot on the
wall became apparent.
"It is impossible to put a definite valua
tlou on the medals and badges," said Miss
Edith Toblt, librarian. "It was the only
complete collection and could not be re
placed or duplicated. The collection stolen
was among the many contributions to the
museum from the exposition."
The stolen badges were contained in a
small beechwood case with the usual glass
front, wired to the wall between two other
larger cases. Many more valuable objects
and curios, equally accessible, were within
easy reach of the thief or thieves who
robbed the museum Friday.
The robbery of the museum has been re
ported to the police and detectives have been
assigned to the case. The search for the
thltf presents unusual problems, In that
it does not bear the marks of having been
done by a common crook.
The wiring by which the case was secured
uas arranged according to an intricate and
peculiar system. The wires were severed
by sure, deft strokes.

Scarcity of horses and mules for teaming
purposes In this territory Is proving of
serious Import to contractors. In Omaha
it has reached the point where bidding on
excavation work Is actually restricted be
cause of the inability of contractors to get
drayage facilities for the removal of earth.
The. shortage has had the Inevitable re
sult of putting up the prices to record fig
ures. As fast as teams can be secured
they are snapped up by contractors and
shipped out on tho big railway contracts
of the northwest and west. Contractors
declare that teams now cost from $6 to $7
a day and are almost Impossible to get at
A case In point is that of the excavation
contract for the new Union Pacific head
quarters building, where 40,000 yards of
earth are to be removed and hauled for
a long distance. One of the largest firmi
in the west, having Its headquarters in
Omaha, refused to bid on the Job because
it was Impossible to be certain of having
teams to handle the work. This firm had
figured on a bid $1,500 below that of the
successful bidder, but was deterred from
entering the competition by the horse and

"Contractors about Omaha are just about
sewed up by the lack of teams," said Hoy
Follard of the Po, lard-Campbell Dredging

Get Compliment for Arguments
in Rate Cases.
A tribute wa paid Incidentally to
Omaha lawyers by one of the Vnlted
States supreme court Judges who sat at
the hearing In the Missouri river rate case
which was argued Tuesday and Wednesday
at Washington. Representatives of the rail
roads, Interstate Commerce commission and
the Jobbers were present, but otter the
arguments had closed on Wednesday, one
of the Judges said that the only two
speeches which amounted to anything In
the line of argument were made by W. D.
McHugh of Omaha, attorney for the rail
roads, and by John Iee Webster of Omaha,
attorney for the Missouri river Jcbbers.
These men have returned to their homes
after being in Washington, where the case
was tried. The closing argument In the
case was made by Mr. Webster and when
he noticed that his time for argumenta
tion had expired, he motioned to the clock
and slrnlfld that be would bring his
speech to a close. The court Indicated to
the attorney that It was willing to hear
more of the rase and he continued to
prime the mutter until the court adjourned.

Robert O. Fink's 11-year-old son Is held
by a majority of the state supreme court
to have been a "fellow servant" of tha
domestic In the house, because the Fink
child was bringing up a hod of coal from
tho kitchen. Two Justices, Fawcett and
Reese, disagree, with the others on this
point, which is Involve! in the reversal of a
suit for damages.
It was announced some time ago that
the supreme court bad granted a new trial
in the suit of Mallssa Waxham against
Mr. Fink, but the mandate has Just been
written out and received here, The plaintiff
received a verdict of $X0 for Injuries Mif
fered In falling through a trap dour at
the Fink residence, December 1, I'M'.
Judge Fawcett has some vigorous re
marks to make about the applicability of
the "fellow-servant rule" in this can-, say
ing: "I concur In the judgment of reversal,
but not upon the ground stated In tha
majority opinion. The doctrine of 'fellow
servant' lias been made to work oveitime
during late years by the courts of the
country. So much so that even congren
has tHkn notice and given some relief
along this line. 1 concede that under
some circumstances a minor son will be
held to be a servant of Ills father, but t
is extending the rule beyond the bonds of
reason and common experience to hold
that a 14-year-old son Is, in his fathers
home, a fellow serviint of the kitchon
girl or housekeeper. M" Ii theory is !
