Parmer Hear Bryan.
W. J. Bryan hald the principal place on
this morning's session of the National
Farmers" congress, i He had been asked
to talk on any question which he consid
ered beat and chose to discuss the farmers'
attitude and place In natlonaJ life and the
queallona of Issue which are vitally Im
portant to the agricultural classes. His
talk of more than an hour received the
closest attention and frequent applause. He
hoverd about political subjects largely,
but presented them In a non-partisan man
ner. Riving both sides of the question
and emphasising hts own views. Among
the topics treated were Initiative and refer
endum, tht Income tax amendment, bank
guarantee briefly, direct election of United
States senators, gambling In stocks and
grain ' by big manipulators, states rights
and the liquor question. Part of these
subjects had already been dealt with by
the congress In resolutions.
. The' farmer. In the opinion of Mr. Bryan,
bears more thai his share of taxes be
cause most of his property Is visible. He
was not prepared to agree with those who
advocate no taxation of Invisible property
because he considered It was better to pun
ish a liar than to exempt him. In na
tional taxation, aald he, the system Is
based wrong In that people are taxed ac
cording to their needs and not according
to their ability to pay. The poor man
pays more than his share and gets tho
least returns therefrom.
The congress went on record unmls
takedly In favor of further and strict reg
ulation, of the liquor business nationally,
and In favor of restrictive regulations
within the state. At Its Saturday session
It passed a resolution stating broadlythat
It opposed the right of any shipper to
aend into a territory any substance which
was Illegal within that state, using Inter
atate commerce laws as a cloak. This re
ferred to the shipments of liquor Into dry
territory, but did not directly say so. At
this morning's session a more direct reso
lution, embodying a Mllle-Curtlss bill,
was Introduced. Some discussion occurred,
the opposition saylngthat It was not wise
to say, .anything, more than had I already
been said on the subject. The resolution
went to a vote and was adopted, by a

WILL CLEAR UP AN OLD CASE
Bertllloa Deeerlntloa Leade to Find
lag of Body of Joha Flash,
Charged With Killing Offi
cer, la Crelghtoa College.
Coincident with the receipt of a Bertlllon
description of John Flash, wanted for
murder In Chicago, what la thought to be
the man's body, was found Monday in a
pickling vat at Crelghton college. All the
Information possessed by the local police
Is to the effect that Flash came to Omaha
In his flight from Chicago after complicity
In the slaying of Policeman Mella In that
city, and died from natural causes here
Detective William T. Deverees was
commissioned to view the body at the
Crelghton college, and with the aid of the
Bertlllon measurements and photograph,
made an official Identification. This
action finally clears up the records of
the case which has been puzzling the Chi
cago police since the murder, which oc
curred April K.
Flash, In company with three other men,
Stefan Zacek, Joseph Prlblla and Steve
Ort, were accused of killing the Chicago
police officer when he attempted to break
up their plundering expedition the night
of April 28.
Flash escaped and Is supposed to have
come to Omaha and died of natural causes
here last month. Zacek committed suicide
In his cell shortly after arrest. The letter
from Chief Clancy of the Chicago detective
department says that a Jury Is now out
on the cases against Prlblla and Ort. He
says that evidence has been very strong
against them and that he has no doubt
that a verdict of guilty will be returned.
Flash, who is believed to be the man
whose corpse now lies In the Crelghton
laboratory was under an indictment of
first degree murder.

Visiting army officers were somewhat
piqued over the lack of attention given
them In a social way during their recent
visit In Omaha. To those who were here
for the first time this waa not so notice
able, but to those who were here last year
the lack of attention was moat apparent
The complaint la that no opportunity was
given them to meet the yung people of
Omsha before the Ak-Sar-Ben ball at any
sort of a reception. It was different last
year, when a large reception was given at
the Field club. Then the Omaha club
was open and many Informal affairs were
given there. This year the club Is closed
for repairs. Cards to some of the other
clubs were sent to the officers, but they
came late In the week.. Last year General
John C. Cowln opened his home for a re
ception, but this year there were no pri
vate receptions at any homes of leading
cltlxens. Samson maintains that he did
what he could by keeping up an officers'
club at Fort Omaha during the time of the
encampment and In seeing that the officers
were well cared for at the Ak-Sar-Ben ball.

PIGEON FLIES WITH A TRAIN
Bird Msklag Regalar Trips Between
Statloas aa Arkansas Hall
road. The pigeon that for the last month or
more has been running with the Iron Moun
tain crews between Malvern and Arkadel
phla has extended Its runs and now makes
the trip from Walco to Gurdon, a distance
of thirty-four miles.
A brakeman who made the trip over the
division this week reported at the Union
station that the pigeon made the down trip
with his train, Joining the crew at Walco,
and leaving them at Ourdon, which -arm
the furthest point south It had been known
to go previously.
For tho last four or five weeks this
pigeon has been flying along with the Iron
Mountain trains. Some of the trainmen are
said to regard it as a hoodoo and fear that
Its presence portends some disaster to
them, but as yet no accident has happened
to a crew while the bird was along. Other
look upon the pigeon as a pet and are al
ways glad to have It Join them on a trip.
The trainmen say that the bird almost
always flies Just ahead of the engine about
on a level with the headlight. On the last
trip Engineer Golleher, who was In the cab,
tried to overtake It, but it waa no use the
pigeon always stayed Just ahead On this
trip when the train stopped at Arkadelphla
for water the bird flew out to one side end
rested In a tree until the fireman rang his
bell for the start, when It resumed Its place
Just In front of the headlight, flying at a
suitable speed to remain about the same
distance ahead whether the train was
going slow or fast Little Rook Gazette.
