LINCOI.N Neb,. Jan. S-t. Special Tele-cram.l-Governor
Aldrlch late this after
noon said that he had decided to request
the attorney general to take a hand be
fore tha JiouElaa county grand Jury In
Investigating the numeroua rumors of law
violation In Omaha and which It Is Hi
leged the city and counly officials can
not or will not prevent.
The attorney general Is expected to
work In conjunction with County Attor
ney English if that official Is willing and
if he la not, the attorney general. It Is
held, aa the chief law officer of tha state,
has the right to go Into any county In
the state and take auch matters before
the grand Jury or the court.
The principal complaints which It Is
expected to bring to the attentton of the
Inquisitorial body. Is the charge that
liquor la sold In questionable resorts with'
out payment of a license, that the Sun
day and S .o'clock cloaing lawa are Ig
nored, that money was corruptly paid In
connection with the procuring of saloon
licenses, and that tha social evil flour
ishes without let or hindrance.
CessBlalats at Prise Vinhta.
There have also been some complaints
that prise fights hare been pulled off In
Omaha and South Omaha. Tbe sheriff
snd police have promised they will be
on hand when alleged boxing maichrs
are held and will atop them and arreai
the principals If they go over tha line
Into the realm of fights.
Tha governor had originally been urged
to appoint a apeclal prosecutor to take
charge of these matters, but ha waa con
vineed he bad no such authority and his
right to appoint anyone to" assist the
county attorney wss questioned ' unless
possibly It waa In response to the request
of the county attorney. Tha matter In
this respect la similar to that of Kuntce
