and fled to the street.
When R. R. Redden, owner of the Omaha
Art' and Frame company, the rear half

Relatives of Davitz
Insist Effort Was Not
Made to Find Them
Nephew Inists that Davitz had
Letters and Cards Addressed
to Them.
Mr. and Mrs. August Abendrotn of Ro
salie, Neb., are In Omaha looking about
after the disposition of their uncle's body.
William Davits died at the county poor
farm January 14 and his body was taken to
the Gentleman undertaking establishment
and then turned over to the Crelghton
Medical college.
Abendroth resents the statement made
that the relatives did not care for the old
man In his declining years. He also Insists
that the county authorities had plenty of
ways of finding tha addresses of his rela
tives. They say that the reason that the
relatives had not called at the poor farm
to seo Mr. Davits was because he was well
enough to go around town to visit them.
They say that ha was not able tq write
well and that he had In his possession
stamped lettera and postal cards all ad
dressed, by which his relatives could have
been found.
Mr. Abendroth says there was no disposi
tion on the part of the relatives to neglect
Davits. He saya that he lived on he farm
at Rosalia with him for over a year, but
was taken sick and came to Omaha, being
rprovlded with money to go to St. Joseph's
hospital. That the next he heard from
1 Davits was that lie bad gone to the poor
farm. He asys also that he had sent
Davits a box of clothing, and that when
ha was In Omaha last fall at the carnival
Davit had come from the poor farm to
visit with him and bis wife for a day. He
Insists that had tha authorities used proper
diligence they would have had no trouble
in reaching the relatives of Davltx.

Thoaaaasl In Halldlas; Special
F.verett Buckingham, general manager,
explained yesterday the object of the con
templated Siooo.rt bond Issue by the Vnion
Stock Yards company.
"W Intend." he aald, "to matt additional
Improvements and then In the event of
being able to put In the water supply sys
tem a considerable sum of money will be
required. That will cost probably S300.0"0
and of this sum tha Stock Yards company
will have to furnish a big proportion."
Asked as to the Improvements Intended
to bo carried out in the yards he said
tha company was going to provide addi
tional pen accommodation, sheep barns
and rebuild all the unloading chutes with
a view to making them In conformity with
the most modern plans. More paving would
be effected during the year and other new
buildings erected to rope with the growing
business of the yards.
It might be mentioned that this progres
sive policy was sanctioned s'. the annual
meeting of the company some weeks ago.
"Of couree." added Mr. Buckingham,
"this $2,000,000 will only be authorised and
we will Issue It from time to time as we
need It to carry out Improvements."
There was a fine run of stock to the
yards yesterday and Mr. Buckingham ex
pects that there will be steady business
for the next ninety days In all classes of
The hall of the exchange building yester
day had quite a new face. The walla and
celling have been repainted, giving this
place of business a clean and bright setting.
ClmniK the Ht reels.
Effective Bteps were taken by Major
Tralnor and City Engineer Roberts to com
pel the contractors, who are doing tha
grading on Twenty-fourth street south of
O street, to keep the thoroughfare clean.
For the last three days Twenty-fourth
street at the city hall has been covered
Inches thick. In parts, with dirt. To cross
from one side of the thoroughfare to the
other one had to wade through Inches of
liquid mud and people desiring to get on
a car at the north side of O street had to
stand In this. The consequence was that
complaints were general and the grum
blings of citizens were enforced by people
coming Into the city on business. Mayor
Tralnor told the contractors that this state
of affairs would no longer be allowed to
continue and the city engineer threatened
that he would pass no more estimates until
the Btreet waa cleaned and kept clean.
Following this strong hint steps were
taken to Improve matters, but much yet
remalna to be done to make the roadway
decently passable for pedeatrains.
Condition of Railroad Avenne.
F. Krebs has fileu a complaint with the
city clerk anent the condition of Railroad
avenue in the vicinity of Y street. "On
account of the construction of the Mud
creek sewer the recent thaw of the snow
has caused the ground to settle to such an
extent that 1 am compelled to wade
through mud In order to get to my resi
dence." he says, and he adds: "There Is
already considerable damage done to my
property owing to the caving In of the
banks." Mr. Krebs. desires the necessary
steps taken to compel the contractors to
make tha required repairs to the street and
sidewalk in order to prevent accidents and
give him access ,iuula property.

St. Valentine's Day in
Omaha Forty-Three
Years Ago Recalled
Aaron R. Hoel Recounts Gala Incident
That Happened Hereabouts
Many Years Ago.
Bt. Valentine's day forty-three years ago
was a big holiday In Omaha. It was an
Ideal day for a hanging out In the open,
and a hanging out there was, witnessed by
thousands of men, women and children
gathered here from many miles around.
Aaron R. Hoel, a pioneer resident of this
city, recalls the Incident, for, being sheriff
of Douglaa county at that time, he was
one of the central figures in the at
The man who paid the death penalty on
this day was a young fellow, Ottawa Q.
Baker, convicted of the murder of a man
named HIgglns, who waa a clerk In W. R.
King's wholesale grocery store. Baker was
a porter at the same place. During the
day of the murder about $1,600 had been
taken In at tho wholesale house and It
was placed in the safe. Baker's girl had
gone to Kansas and In his ardent desire
to follow and be with her he laid plana to
get the money. He murdered Hlgglna,
opened the safe, and after taking the
money hid It In a tin- box on Twelfth
street between Howard and Jackson. Ha
was tiled, convicted and Sentenced to hang.
"You have no Idea of the way the wo
men flocked to the scene of the hanging,
which was on the prairie back of the site
of the present high school building," said
Mr. Hoel In speaking of the incident of
years ago. "They actually made a martyr
ot him, coming to the scene for many nines
around, all decked out In their Sunday
beet Sure, they would do the very same
thing today If they were given the oppor
tunity, but by law all hangings are now
conducted In a rather secret way at the
state prison, Kome were attracted, of
course, by morbid curiosity, but many
were inclined to make a martyr of the pris
oner more out of pity because ot his fate
than by the nature of his deed. Women
are just the same today; let a man go on
trial in any of the stale courts, and the
first thing you know they will ba sending
him flowers."
Mr. Hoel recounts that just before the
hanging the prisoner was escorted to the
scaffold by a guard composed of firemen,
armed with muskets. The guard was In
charge of tiherlff Hoel. After the hanging
the body waa secured by aome enterpris
ing individual who mounted It and had it
on exhibition here for a long time.
