"But, meantime, congress has enabled

will be, and they have demonstrated by
what they have done that the material

KIMMEL AND HUNT QUARREL
Former Omaha Man and Convict
Neatly Come to Blows.
HUNT CALLS, HIM AN IMPOSTOE
Man of Mystery Keep Vp His
Claim at the Home of Relatives
at Kile' bnt Hunt Again '
Violent quarrel between Andrew J.
Hunt of Arkansas City, Kan., formerly
of Omaha, and the man of mystery at
Nlles, Mich., who claims to be a former
associate of Hunt, marked the end of
their interview at Nlles, according to a
report that reached Omaha Saturday.
Hunt went to Nlles to see Klmmel, de
claring that a few minutes conversation
with the man of mystery would enable
him to tell positively whether or not he
was Klmmel. Previous newspaper re
ports already have told of the interview.
The man recalled muoh of Klmmel's as
sociations with Hunt, but not all. Here
1 the end of the Interview at the Rom
of Klmmel's cousin, Harry Fox;
"Tell me something about Arkansas
City," said Hunt.
"I remember the time I rented the
room over the bank to a railroad lodge,''
said the man. .
"There never was a railroad lodge up
there;" said Hunt.
"Yes there was, too,; I rented It to For
garty and Mlgails."
"No, there was never a lodge up

Suddenly the man sprang from ths
ohalr, his whole form shaking, hi teeth
olenched, a bony forefinger pointing at
"I know you now," he screamed, "you
hound. Tou are the man who came to
see me In Matteawan and In Auburn and
went away and lied about what occurred.
Tou know I am Oeorge Klmmol. Tou are
here to try and trap me, 'not to try and
give out the truth. Get out. Why was
this man allowed to get in here to see
meT He means only to practice deceit.
I refuse to talk further with you. You
are my enemy. I will leave Nlles today
If I have to go afoot."
The man sank Into his chair ex
hausted and quivering. Fox and his wife
tried to soothe him. Hunt said:
"Tou are not George Klmmel. You are
an Impostor. You have been taught some
things about Klmmel's past life Just like
a parrot is taught. But when I, who
knew Klmmel intimately, come here to
question you, you pretend to be angry
and outraged. You are a fraud."
Klmmel Ordered Him Ont.
The man lying in the Morris chair
sat up again and pointed his shaking
hand at Hunt.
."I know, that hard grin on your face.
I've seen it before. I saw it at Mat
teawan and at Auburn. Oet out, go
away." ha shrieked.
Hunt arose, apologised to Mr. and Mrs.
Fox for intruding and said:

from the Kansas City Star that this
was not Klmmel.
"I am Klmmel," the quavering voice
of the man in the Morris chair declared.
"You are Klmmel about as much as I
am." retorted Hunt.
"I am broken, I am nervous; ths
strain Is too much for me. Let no more

A half hour later ths man who says
he is Klmmel wss strolling the streets,

Other Knew Klmmel.
William B. Whitehorn. of Omaha, an
acquaintance of George A. Kimmel when
he lived here, declared his belief that
Andrew J. Hunt would not denounce th
Nlles, Mich., man as an impostor unless
he were one.
"I never knew Klmmel very intimately,"
said Whitehorn. when interviewed in the
offices of ths Omaha Electric Light A
Power company, where he works. "I
met him socially some and in the Masonic
lodge. Hunt knew him well. I believe
what Hunt' says. I don't think Kimmel
worked for the Paclfio Express company
at the same time I did."

I would give the commission a liberal

provide that one commissioner should go

president would appoint the entire com

would give the commission power and
authority to Inquire Into the organisa
