"What this country nirds la a connection
with Omaha by the Missouri river." iatd
IVtT V. I)lrk, president of seven bank
on tha Milwaukee & St. Paul line west of
Mr, Dirks met the patty at Oacoma and
accompanied them to Preeho. lie It en
Ihuxlantlc over the possibility of opening
the river to navigation and putting boats
on it that the town of Oacoma and people
of Lyman county may ha-o the benefits
of Water- transportation between their
fields and the Omaha market. Two small
boats now run from Oacoma to lona, an
Inland town twenty miles below. This Is
considered the beginning; of navigation on
the river In South Dakota and, as the party
pulUd across the long pontoon bridge, two
boats loaded wtlh agricultural Implements
were pulling out Into the river for lona.
"Why not run them to Omaha?" was the
first question which the traJe excurslonlBts
sked, and for the first time many realised
the possibilities of connecting with the
great Missouri river valley in Pouth Da
kota by way of the river Instead of de
pending on the round-about railroad con
BKCtlons.. Con a try Is Proaperona.
Fifteen townships of Lyman county
border on the Missouri river as the stream
forms Us northern and eastern boundary
a distance of 102 miles. The county Is a
land rapidly filling with settlers and It
consists, of almost 200,000 acres of good
farming lands. It produced last year 100,
H0 bushels of wheat, 330.000 bushels of
corn, and 95.000 bushels of oats. The as
sessed valuation of property in the county
Is 5,627,9tt7, and will double within five
yeara. Such la the country asking the
lower river cities to open the Missouri
river and give them cheaper as well as
more convenient transportation facilities.
Railroad rates are now high and must
be for years, when water transportation
would cut them In half and give Omaha
absolute control of the trade. Here are
a few of the rates the dealers are paying
on goods from Omaha at present, with the
water rata now charged' for a simlllar
distance by the Benton Packet company.

With such rates as could be afforded
by the Benton Packet company. If It was
running a line between Omaha and Cham
berlain, every dollar's worth of merchan
dise sold to the people in thirteen South
Dakota counties, could be shipped In for
less than from any other market. The
trade excursionists are learning this ad
vantage for the first time. i
Messages are being received-almost daily
. by .the Omaha visitors from some little
tou-n on the inland, urging the business
men to use their utmost endeavor-to gl a
north and south railroad extended Into
the territory west of the river, coming di
rect from Omaha. The people in this ter
ritory insist that a line extending from
'Dallas north and west would be of Inesti
mable benefit to them. This Is the special
ambition of the grain dealers.
':.' Grain Men Plus; for Trade. .
Oraln men on the Omaha excursion are
among the hardest workers and are-certainly
doing everything possible to divert
grain to the Omaha market. They are off
at every station, and with from three to
eight elevators to visit they have had a
- strenuous time until after the party
pulled out of Oacoma, which is on the
border between the farms and the ranges.

Lincoln School Gets First Place, Gar

Third Two Forgeries
The Shamrock Athlet:o association com
mitted Itself to tha plan of giving South
Omaha a street carnival about the middle
of June, last night. The club held a special
meeting at the. rooms and agreed to the
proposition of securing an amusement com
pany and will handle the financial end of
the transaction, paying the amusement
company a stipulated sum. The time will
probably be the week beginning June 12.
The management of the club will meet with
representatives of the amusement company
at 10 o'clock this morning to perfect the
details of the contract.
It has been the custom of those engl
neerlng carnivals previous to this time to
hire an amusement company, which Is paid
a stipulated sum and a peroentage of tbe
excess profits. The club hopes by means
of the carnival to raise money enough to
put the club on a sound and easy financial
basis. With unusual success It may be pos
sible to arrange for new club rooms on a
scale suited to the needs of the growing or
ganisation. This will be the first venture
Into this class of entertainment.
Annaal Grade Schools Sleet.
The athletic meet of the South Omaha
grade schools was carried out yesterday
afternoon at Duffy's park with success.
The honors went to tha Lincoln school,
which captured 33 points In class A and
34Vi points In class B. Garfield school was
second with 7 points In each class. West
Side was third with 1 point in class A and
UVi In class B. The Linooln boys have an
exceptionally good track team and they
captured nearly all of the first places.
Seme good records were made by the
grade schools In each of the events. The
boys of class A made a height of 4 feet
10 Inches In the running high Jump; In
class B the height was 4 feet 4 Inches. In
the running broad Jump class A made IS
feet Inches; class B made 13 feet 6 Inches.
A height of 7 feet 2 Inches was mada In
the pole vault by class A and 6 feet
Inches by class U. In the 100-yard dash
0:13 was made In class A and 0:15i by
class B. The baso ball throw In class A
was 186 feet. Lincoln school won the relay
rtco in both classes.
in many ways the meet was tedious,
owing to the vast confusion of the shout
ing hundreds of boys and girls representing
the several ech sis. These shouted without
cessation during the entire afternoon and
the boys could not be kept off the course,
but handicapped every effort of the con
testants by being constantly In the way.

ACCIDENT IN A SEWER .
MAKES CRAIG INQUISITIVE
City Engineer Wishes to Discover
Why Explosion Took Place In
Spite of Preventions.
City Engineer Craig is having a careful
Investigation made of an accident by which
a plumber's laborer was Injured In a sewer
on lower Farnam street Friday afternoon.
The man took a lighted candle Into tbe
ditch with him and an explosion followed
which Injured him painfully but not seri
ously. "This is tbe only large city In the coun
try that I know of whlcn has ventllatnd
sewers," said Mr. Craig. "The late An
drew Rosewater established the system in
Omaha, insisting on vents in every con
nected building and on open manholes, so
that It would be Impossible for sewer gas
"In the present Instance, which is the
first of its kind I have heard of in Omaha,
we are convinced that tbe workman must
have run into a pocket of gas from gaso
line or similar fluid. The laundries and
other establishments use a good deal of
gasoline In their business, and we believe It
was this stuff, In a leaky sewer pipe prob
ably, that exploded and Injured the man.
Bo far as anybody can figure It out, there
Is no possibility of an accumulation of
sewer gas in the streets of Omaha. Being
convinced of this we are having a careful
investigation made to ascertain the cause
of the accident."

Ralph O. Urban has brought suit In the

for $25 000 damages for false Imprisonment
and defamation of character.
This Is the second suit of this character
that Urban has brought against the Adams
company, and for the same amount In the
federal court. The first suit was remanded
to the state courts and Urban recently was
awarded a verdict for 3,S00. Shortly after
his first arrest and Imprisonment Urban
was rearrested on a similar charge In May,
1909, and Imprisoned for three days In the
Omaha city jail on information sworn out
by the Adams company. This charge could
rot be made good and Urban was again re

The use of the so-called "third degree"
In the examination of suspected criminals
as a subject of "maudlin jury appeals" by
lawyers was a matter of general discussion
among the chiefs of police in attendance
at the international convention at Birming

Chief Donahue. He and Mrs. Donahue re
turned Saturday morning from a trip to
the south, which Included the Birmingham
convention and a stay at Excelsior Springs.
"It was generally agreed that efforts
should be made to . discourage this cheap
trick of lawyers," said the chief. "As a
