Awordlns to a report from J.lncotn.
the next move of the Uiullrmtoi! will be
the transfer of Its engineering force
from that city to Omaha. U ha made
other similar transfers In yrnrs Kqne by.
While this report 1ms not been con
firmed by Omaha llurllnnton officials. It
hns not been ilen.ed. As a matter of
fact, they think they are able now to
prove an nllbl when they say they
know nothing of what the Hill manage
'nient Is doing or Intends to do, since
everything Is kept a secret at Chicago
until time for action.
It Is now generally understood that
General Manager Holdrcge had no pre
vious knowledge of the plan to move
the , auditing department from Omaha
to Chicago when Tho Hee published the
original story of the coup. Mr. Hoi
'drego then wrote to Chicago for advice.
"Now that an Omaha newspaper lmi
rushed to the defense of the Hurling
. ten In this matter," paid a big shipper and
very prominent Omaha business man,
'"I want to make this prediction, that
when George W. Holdrege tntlrcs as
general manager of tte Murllngtpn In
Omaha that office wilt go out of ex
istence. There will be no .more general
managers under the HIM regime.

"And in this connection I want to re
Mate a few facts which are known to h
certain body of business men In this
City and which will tend to bear out my
'prediction, A few years ago since Hill
took over the Burllnston tho powers
'that be In Chicago arranged for Mr.
Holdrcgc'a retirement. They decided the
company could get along without a gen
eral manager here, and their order might
have been carried' out but for the storm
at protest raised by heavy shippers In
this city, demanding the retention of
Mr. Holdrege. Hill's factotum simply
did not dare at that time to defy bo
many of the Burlington's heaviest
shippers, and General Manager Holdrege
has continued to draw his $20,000 a year.
"This, I regard, as a splendid tribute
,'to Mr. Holdrege, whose fidelity to his
company han-novervbeen questioned and
"yet who has stood a valiant friend of

has never occurred, I venture to say,

Rogers, member of tho firm, discovered
that esomeonc was stealing goods from

City is Not Liable
for Bond Money Paid
to Wrong Parties
The city of Omaha Is not liable for the
loss of the bond money fraudulently ob
tained from police court by Al "Wick. Is

by a city official. At a meeting of tho
city commission nine's opinion was ac

Queer Set of Names
In the abstract of a Gregory county
South Dakota, farm on which he has
loaned t.everal thousand dollars H. J,
Abrahams has found an odd set of In
dian names. The property now Is owneo
by a white mnn, but Its early history Is
Interesting because of Its redskin owners.
The Interesting Indian history begins
with the' giving of a trust ded to th
property In favor of Young Spotted Deer;
an Indian maiden. Young Spotted Deer
was succeeded by four children, Eagle
Pipe, Nellie Cain, Comes-Ont-Uear and
Yellow-Face. Yellow-Face had two chil
dren, Kaglo-Boy and Good-Whirlwind,
while Comes-Out-Beor became the father
of three children, Born-on-thc-Water,
Comes-Out-Bear, White-Boy Comes-Out-Bear
and Glves-A way-Presents Comes-Out-Bear.
Ultimately all the Indian heirs
disposed of their Interests to whlto men.
