hard to pick out the winners. I am glad
that the boys are taking .an interest in
this work, as it will insure a good ex

to say that next year a larger amount of
money will be set aside for premiums
for the boys."
Must Be Tried Here
The last two members of the Mabray
gang of race track swindlers and pro
moters of fake prize fights will be it
quired to stand trial in Omaha. The su
preme court of the United States sustains
the order of removal of the lower court at
Los -Angeles requiring Frank, W. Brown
arid E. C. Moore, members of the gang,
to be brought to Omaha for trial. The
defendants are now endeavoring to post
$10,000 bonds for their appearance in Sep
tember. The defendants, arrested in Los An
geles a year ago, resisted extradition to
stand trial in Nebraska. The lower court
ordered their removal, from which an ap
peal was taken to the supreme court.
Brown and Moore are alleged to have
been the ringleaders and the backbone
of the gang at the time of Mabray's ar
rest and subsequent breaking up of the
