The imriiofo was to mnko tlie fraudulent

A ahowlns that Anderson reGlstcred
where he did iut live would hava been
sufficient to convict him of fraudulent
registration, but to warrant holding An
derson for perjury the state had to show
that he actually took oath and awura
falsely that he lived in a certain precinct
and ward. The registrars wire unable, to
awear positij'ly that Anderson was
placid under oath at all. There waa
nothing for Judpe Leslie to do but to dis

Park Board Accepts
from Dr. Gifford
Dr. Harold Clifford has addressed a
communication to the Park, board In re.
gard to the donation of the strip ot land
for a public playground, in which he aski
that the city aacept the land for the
children and to spend some money on
It for swings, etc., In order to mako the
playgrounds a success. Dr. Gilford be
lieves that the city needs at least ten
playgrounds for the children and he
thinks that it the first one la a success
other persons who take pride In Omaha
will follow with like donations. Tho
Park board will Improve the grounds
given by Dr. Clifford and will place
merry-jo-rounda, swings, seesaws and
the like there within the next few months.
While; the board was In session Friday
It waa decided to make an eishtaan-hole
golf course at Font entile put and also
U buitd a ball diamond there.
Asserting Hint an ordinance passed by
the city council three 'Weeks ago provid
ing for an occupation tax on dealers In
fuel, hay, ke and grain, who sell less
than carload lots, Is nothing more than
a high-handed attempt to drive the small
dealers out of business, a number of coal
and feed men banded together and en
gaged Attorney W. J. Connell to fight
the ordinance to a finish.
The feed and coal men are headed by
J. I. Kemp of i.'ili Leavenworth street,
and Mr. Kemp says that he will suffer
arrest ten times a day rather than to
pay tho "occupation tux." Tho ordinance
which has aroused the Ire of tho coal
men provides that a tax be laid on all
persons, forms or corporations engaged
In selling hay, grain or fuel or lee In less
than carload lots and by weight- The
persons, firms or corporations engaged
and grain are required to pay a tax of ;
$10 per year; those engnged In the build
ing material business aro taxed $20; lee
men aro taxed IHS and fuel dealers are
also required .to pay jar. Violation ot the
ordinance is punishable with arrest and
fines not exceeding 1W or less than j,
and the ordinance is to go into effect
November 1, lull.
The attorneys who are representing tho
firms who arc golnu to fight the ordt.
nance state that tho clause providing
for punlfhment l unlawful, and that the
council has exceeded Us authority by
passing such an ordinunce. Mr. Connell
says the whole law Is unjust and leaky,
and when the matter comes tj a head
he expects it to bo repeuled.
"The man who deals In coal -who op
erates only one 'wagon Is compelled to
pay a l.r tax, and the man who operates
fifty or a hundred wagons gets off with
the same amount," said J. 1. Kemp. "It
is unjust, und if It Ih allowed to stand,
a number of smaller firms will be sorely
The following are some of the firms
who are preparing to fight the ordinunce
and who have banded together and se
cured the services of Mr. Connell: J. I.
Kemp, 2313 Leavenworth; 14. A. Winn,

Miss Dineen had retimed to come Into

as an unwilling witness. Cross-examined,
she said Urown came up ti her clg.tr
counter, bought n cigar, smiled a little
and asked hor if she wanted to make
sumo easy money. She said she told
him she guessed If there were any easy
money to be made he would make It.
.Miss lUncon said she paid no ninro at
tention to Urown at this time, as rho
meets people like that every day. Later,
ho came again, she said.
"He offered me -S for my time." s:ild
M.ss i'lneen, '"not to testify, but for my
tlmo. 1 told him I didn't w.mt the money
and didn't want to testify. 1 didn't want

any newspaper notoriety or whatever It
Is. I never expected him to pay me any
money and he hasn't paid me any."
The testimony ot Mins Ulneen which
Urown desired was to the effect th.it
she saw Mr. Urown show Mrs. Hell
proof sheets of the pamphlets In which the
Hoyd system used her picture and Mrs.
Hell made no objection. Miss Dineen said
die saw Urown Hhow Mrs. Hell some
paper with her picture on It, but she
didn't know what the paper was and
didn't hear any of the conversation be
tween XI rs. Uell and Hrown.
A. W. Jeffcrla, attorney for the de

Amos E. Henley, attorney for Mrs. Hell,
was examining Miss LHncrn about the t-"
proposition. "Don't get excited," Henley
repeatedly advised Jefferls. "1 m nut
