NEWLYWEDS ARE SEPARATED
Husband, Returning from Baltimore,
Insists on Talking Politics.
JUMPS FROM TRAIN AFTER START
Wife Watts at Fremont for Comias
of the Mis She Had Wedded
at Baltimore bat a Short
Mr. Newlywed was busily engaged In a
"talkfest" with a fellow traveler at the
Union station this morning. Tea, Mr.
Newlywed was on his way horn from
Baltimore he had Been an onlooker at
the democratic national convention, not a
delegate. And Usten-he haa been caught
In the -matrimonial meshes while there
no, not by one of those Baltimore maids
she was a schoolgirl friend who had come
over to the convention from Atlantic
Traveling friend ' and Mr. Newlywed
soon forgot nuptial topics, however, and
became busily engrossed in the progres
sive outlook and the possibilities of a
third party. Mr. Newlywed was Just
summing up his arguments on the "steam
roller" when a demure little hand tugged
his sleeve and murmured something about
train time. Hubby smiled sweetly,
Ignored the warning and continued his
amateur political conversation.
Just then the Overland Limited gave an
almost inaudible toot as a signal warning
to start. Mrs. Newlywed hurried through
the Iron bars, expecting hubby to follow.
Indeed, he kept on until she reached
the "El Monte," one of the Pullmans
about five cars from the rear. To the
polite request of brass buttons she re
plied that hubby had the tickets. Already
the Limited was creeping out from under
the train shed.
Safely ensconced in the Pullman Mrs.
Newlywed glanced back and saw hubby
and his traveling friend walking non
chalantly through the gate. Of course
he would catch the train. Mrs. Newlywed
would stay in her seat until hubby found
her Just to worry him over his lack of
By this time the Limited was making a
fast dog trot gait and increasing its speed
every minute. Hubby and the traveling
man glanced at the moving train and
"steam rollers," progressive parties and
the recall of Judges were forgotten.
They both started on a speedy Olympic
sprint for the train, gained it and hopped
aboard a Pullman about three cars to the
rear of the El Monte.
"Have ydv seen my wife?' breathlessly
queried Mr. Newlywed of the conductor.
"No, sir," answered that individual.
"This is a special car of Chicago business
men bound for California."
One glance into the interior of the Pull
man bore out the official's words. " Thero
were .no women there.
, "We're on the wrong train," gasped the
traveling friend when he heard the words
"special, Chicago business men."
Mr. Traveling Man pulled on his Pan
ama, scrambled for the step, bopped off
and was followed by Mr. Newlywed minus
a straw hat in the hasty exit.
It was only after a hurried conference
with station officials that the political
pair were convinced of their mistake. As
a result Mrs. Newlywed is waiting In Fre
mont until the Los Angeles Limited comes
along this afternoon with hubby.
Change of Venue in
Estelle Libel Suit
Motion of the defendant for a change
of venue In the $60,000 libel suit of Judge
Estelle against the News was sustained
by Judge Sutton, Leslie and Day in
district court yesterday.
The judges said they probably would
send the case to Dodge county, though
upon request of the plaintiff it may be
sent to Sarpy county.
The Judges ordered Attorney Baxter for
the defendant to prepare an order for
change ef venue to Dodge county, indi
cating that they may sign it, but before
doing so may substitute Sarpy for Dodge.

Corn in Fine Shape
Commissioner J. M. Guild of the Com

OkiboJl where he spent the Fourth with

is the best he has seen In all his recent

especially in Nebraska," he said," but
I believe Iowa has a little start on us.
The crops all along the way to Okobojl

GIRL MAY BETRAY HER LOVER
Anna Musick Says Hasck Baby's

Yonngj Woman Wna Employed as
None for Child Supposed to
' Have Been Killed by Her
Clues Inadvertently dropped by Miss
Anna Musick will lead to the arrest of
her lover, Anton Konvallnka, who is be
lieved to have fired the shot that killed
the eleven months old child of Mr. and
Mrs. Frank Hasek, 1360 South Fifteenth
street, on the evening of the Fourth of
When Konvallnka learned that the
baby had died of Its wounds, he fled
from bis boarding house, which Is lo
cated opposite the Hasek home, and has
not been seen since. His sudden dlsap.
parance is regarded as significant, and
he will be arrested just as soon as the
police can locate him.
The suicide theory, which the police at
first seemed pleased to embrace, has been
shattered completely, not only by the
hints left by the girl that her sweetheart
was hiding on a farm ten miles from
Omaha, but by her absence since Kon
vallnka left. It is probable that she is
with him. .,
Girl Norses Hasek Baby. " '
The Musick girl had been employed in
the Hasek home as a nurse atendlng lit
tle Vlatlslaw, victim of the bullet sup
posed to have been fired by her sweet
heart. The girl' was greatly excited and
heartbroken over the death of the baby.
On the night of the Fourth of July Kon
vallnka and the Musick girl are known
to have been together. Next day, when
the baby died, both lovers disappeared.
After Konvalinka's departure the girl
Is said to have confided to friends that
Anton had gone to the farm ot a friend
about ten miles west of the city. Thus
far the police have noi been able to
locate the hiding place, but with the
girl in the case they feel that it is only
a matter of a short time until they will
learn of his whereabouts and hold him
to answer some pointed questions.

Sergeant Tony Vanous, the only mem
ber of (he police department who speaks
the Bohemian language, has been detailed
on the case and he Is now trying to locate
the girl or some of her friends with
whom she might have confided her
secrets At present It Is not known
whether the girl Is hiding in Omaha or
has joined her sweetheart, and if she
can be found it Is believed that the
police will be able to elarn through her
the whereabouts of Konvallnaka.

Judge Ben Baker, city corporation coun
sel, told the city commission and the
water board yesterday thst extensions

by the water board without the consent
of the council.
Judge Baker will render a written
opinion In the case Friday. He said he
looked up the law and found that the
water board didn't "own the water plant,
but simply had supervision over It." He
also asked for harmony because the
question raised would readily permit of

It and a six-Inch water main laid over
Water Commissioner Howell, replying
to a question from Commissioner Ryder
as to whether the Water board had ever
contemplated consulting the council In
the matter of tearing up streets to lay
mains, said the question had been met
with for the first time.
Mr. Howell Invited the commission to
Inspect the plans, which he said would
prove that Twenty-seventh was the log
ical street for the main. He said en
gineers had been brought here from 8t
Louis, examined the system of mains and
designated Twenty-seventh street for the
Further Mr. Howell asserted the water
company had been building other mains,
two of them thirty-six Inches, with' tho
Intention of some time connecting with
the forty-eight-inch main on Twenty-sev-

would mean added expense and a main
of decreased efficiency, because a right
angle turn would have to be made to
run It down Twenty-eighth street, the
next "most logical."
Judge Baker gave it has bis opinion
that the council dould use Its own judg
ment In naming conditions under which
the Water board should make extensions
and lay new mains. This would compel
the hoard to pay the cost of relaying
streets torn up In the process of con
structing such mains.
