The move to organise a cadet informa
tion brigade was found necessary since at
least 2,000 teachers will visit Omaha from
the state and al.o from Iowa. Many of
these have not been in Omaha and others
will not be informed as to places of meet
ing and where rooms can be secured. This
information is to be furnished by the
cadets, who will also escort teachers to
the session chambers.
As indication that the attendance at the
convention will bo the greatest ever as
sembled to any teachers' convention in
Nebraska the local arrangements Commit
tee point to the fact that nearly 2,000
rooms have been reserved. The Toung
Men's Christian association alone has
listed 2,000 and the majority of them
have been taken.

Island schools, notified Superintendent

ers to all sessions and to this reception.
The committee has decided to begin
enrollment Wednesday morning at the
Home hotel and also at the Auditorium,
It was at first planned to have all teach

schools of the stata have signified their
intention .of. sending suck a large number
that all could not be properly handled
at one registration place.
When the first session is held at the
Auditorium the visiting pedagogues will
see a room draped with hundreds of
United States flans, large and small, with
a background of green bunting. Three
hundred huge flags are being used In

New Fallers Story
Appears, but it is
Very Quickly Denied
Another story, telllns of the location
of the murderer of Bridge Watchman
Faller. who disappeared from his post
of duty on the Douglas treet biidgo one
night last July and has never been seon
since that time, lias been wafted Into the
Office of the street railway company, in
whos employ Fallen waa at the time.
This time the murderer Is said
to be William Wilde, now In Jail at Fair
fax, Orory county. South Dakota,
where he la held on the charge of bavins
stolen a quantity of clothing. The story
was told to the officers of Oregory
county by one Robert Tlerhey. a fellow
prisoner, and one who asserts he become
Intimately acquainted with Wilde, while
they were both In Jail.
According to the story of Tlerney, Wilde
told him that last July he was In Omaha
and that one night, about 11 o'clock, on
the west end of the Douglas street
bridge, he attacked the bridge tender,
struck him with an Iron bar, crushed his
skull and killed him. kfter the man was
aeaa, he robbed the booy, taking ix ana
a revolver. Then h carried the body
to the middle of the brtdg and. raising It
over the rail, dropped it Into the river.
Officers of the street railway company
have investigated th report and find
that while Wilde la in Jail at Fairfax, he
denies ever having made the statement
attributed to him by Tlerney, or anybody
else. He says that he waa not In Omaha
during July and that he was never on the
Douglas .street bridge.
Another thing that discredits the story
of Tlerney Is the statement of Mrs. Fal
lers to the effect that her husband did
not have, or carry a revolver and that at
no time when on night duty did he have
as much as $3 in his possession at one
Federal Clock May
When the work of repairing the federal
building begins, one of the first acts of
the painters and electricians will be to
repair the clock and dials in the
dome of the buldlng. For some time
the clock has been behaving somewhat
erratically and at night it is almost im
possible to tell the time. Superintendent
Cramer says he will fix it up In some
way end In all probability he will en
large the dials and hands and place elec
trlo lights behind the glass faces.

chance and the combine didn't want to
Jar it by turning down Latenser to please
the general contractors.

was supposed (o have - been completely
gagged until after election, bit his gag
In two and demanded Immediate aotlon

was the beet thing to do. "We can take
it up there and find out about It," said
Mr. Bedford. "I thought we knew all
about it," persisted Mr. F.!assei ''Well,
we'd better take it tip in committee,"

SIOUX CITY LUMBER
RATE CASE IS HEARD
Complaining that the railroad rates
on lumber from the south to Sioux City
are unjust because they are S cents per
100 pounds higher than the Omaha rates,
George T. Bell, commissioner of the
Sioux City Commercial club, appeared be
fore Examiner J. S. Burchmore of the
Interstate Commerce commission Satur
day morning in the United States circuit
court room and testified In favor of
The hearing began at 9 o'clock and the
greater part of the morning was con
sumed In th taking of Mr. Bell's evi
dence. Mr, Bell stated that although
Sioux City la considerably farther north
than Omaha the distance Is not so great
that G cents per hundred pounds more
than the Omaha rate should be ohargod
for carrying. The contention i f the rail
roads Is that the distance between Sioux
City and Omaha Is 100 miles and that
an extra 5 cents for carrying lumber that
dls'ance Is not exorbitant,
A recess was taken at 1 o'clock, after
which tho hearing was resumed. No de
cision lu the matter will be made for
several weeks, for as soon as the hearing
Is completed the case will trans
ferred either to Sioux City or to Chi.
