Three hundred Omaha people consti
tute the force of local committees that
huve to do with the local arrangements
for tho coming Stato Teachers' associa
tion that Is to swoop down upon Omaha
November 5 to 7. Inclusive. Tho organ!
ration for caring for the teachers this
year" Is far larger than ever before and
has perhaps laid out Its plans and ar
rangements better than before. The
chairmen of tho various committees met
nt tho Commercial club rooms yestorday
afternoon and laid the final plans for
their various work.
There will bo reception committees at
tho various depots to meet all trains.
They will havo a force of guides to take
tho teachers to tholr. cars and start them
in 'the right direction for their various
rooms. Also they will give information
to thoso who have not already engaged
sthelr rooms, If they aro looking for a
place to room.
A room bureau will be managed at tho
Young Men's Christian association, whero
all teachers can Inquire for rooms. Al
icady a largo list of available rooms
arc catalogued there with tho bureau,
and others Hro being received. The bu
reau Is still an.lous to have those who
have uvallablo rooms call up and list
them with tho bureau.
Kip rot Increased Attendance.
It Is no guess this year, but an esti
mate bared on rcllablo indications that
tho actual enrollment of teachers this
year will bo heavier than ever before.
The enrollment last year at the meet
ing In Otlaha was some 4,500. Thli In
cluded 1,300 falsely enrolled by the Lin
coln Commercial club, whllo the teach,
ora whose names were thus enrolled did
iiot attend at all and were not even in
the city. Ho this year the 'figures of
actual enrollment are expected to out
number thbso who actually enrolled
themselves last year.
For more than a month letters have
been pouring Into the publicity bureau
and to Superintendent li U. Graff from
Bchool after school In the state that is
going to send ull the teachers. This haa
mado a stack of letters eight Inches
high, and conservative estimates made
from this stack of reports Indicate that
the enrollment will bo very large.
Politics Warm Up;
Fireworks are looked for in the" asso
ciation meeting this year on account of
tho overheated cdndltlon of school poli
tics at this critical time. Who wilt bo
the noact president is always a question
that interests many who are. the lead
ers In tho association. The fight on
President Thomas nt tho Kearney nor
mal Is expected to bo dragged Into
some extent. Here and there new can
didates for the presidency of the asso
ciation are heard from. Chancellor
Avery has been mentioned. Miss Mc
llugh of Omaha has been mention. A- O.
Thomas of Kearney has been mentioned,
and it is said that new ones that have
not yet beer publicly mentioned may
bhow up strong when the teachers from
certain sections of the statu begin to
leglster their preference when they en

DEMANDS HIS PARDON FIRST

Paid in Advance.
INTERVIEW WITH HENESSEY
Content of I.lttle Black Hook that
ItrlatF to the Talk In the War
ncn'n Office Are Made
, NEW YORK. Nov. 1. The contents of
Investigator Hcnnessy's llttlo black boc-k, ;
to far ns It relates to his conference In
Blng Sing with Btcphcn J. Stilwell, con
victed stato senator, was mado public
here today. The book was placed In
evidence at the John Doe Inquiry yester
day, but wat not made public. It re
veals no (confession. The names of
Charles F. Murphy, State Senator Frawley
and others aro mentioned, but after fenc
ing for hours with Ilennessy, Stilwell re
fused to decline anybody flatly of any
thing. Insisting that he first get his
pardon. When this was refused the
negotiations 'were dropped.
The Interview In tho warden's office,
with a stenographer as an eavesdropper,
continued for hours. The stenographlo
report is broken and disjointed, this being
explained as duo to the nolso of passing
trains. Tho dialogue shows a keen ver
bal duel between Ilennessy and Stilwell
tho latter evasive and fearful of betrayal,
the former seeking diligently for disclos
ures which he believed might permit Sul
zcr to challenge impeachment.
Stilwell is quoted as having satd among
Ilennessy l?o you menn you want the
pardon before you make an affidavit T
Htllwell-I tfllt glvo you the affidavit,
but I can't before tho grand Jury. I will
go the limit, 1 will prevent them from
voting against tfie governor. I will put
Murphy In Jail and Frawley there, too,
but I must protect myself. I must do It,,
Thero Is no question but that you can get
Frawley. I am pretty sure you can im
peach Murphy, but thcro Is no question
about Frawley; but I can't seo my way
clear, I can't do It In Justice to myself.
I know what it means; no nno knows bet
ter than I do. If the pardon Is not there,
I've got to como back; thero is no use
talking. I can't do it even If I've got to
servo the limit and take a chance of kill
ing myself rather than havo It handed
- nefnnen to Give Details.
Hero tho ex-senntor continued to de
mand his pardon first. The record goes
"If I was outside this minute, I would
do It whether I gain anything by it or
not I would get Murphy If it was the
last thing I did before I died. I have
reasons for doing It. Ood! My mind has
almost left me."
Ilennessy Why ls.lt a man like Mur
phy can movo these things for years and
yu."a and nobody know jt?
Btllwoll-Becauie tho fellows that Know
It generally are afraid to cotne out.
Where did ilurphy get all. his. money
from? He Is rolling in money he never
had an office.
Ilennessy What Is there, abput Fraw.
ley getting some money front some brew
eryT Stilwell I can prove that. He will al
ways take money on the things. Each
one of them gets J5.000 a year from th
brewery association In this.

HASTINGS, Neb.', Nov. 1. (Special.)
With the identification of the body which
lies In the morgue hero and the produc
tion of a large accumulation of evldenco
Including a letter advising him that he
was to Je made the sole beneficiary of
tho will, John T. Culavln of Omaha, ex
pects to establish his claim to the 1100,000
estate of John O'Connor, the recluse who
died here on August 17, last.
After a search which ha carried him
over thirteen trunk lino railroads for a
distance of 11,00) miles, Mr. Culavln's
attorney, Nelson H. Tunnlcllff of Now
York, a former Omaha lawyer, announced
today that ho Is prepared to draw tho
curtain of obscurity rtom the Ilfo of the
John O'Connor walked Into Hastings
from .Fremont some twenty-five years
ago with 25 cents as the sum of his
worldly possessions. With this capital
and his meager rarnlngs as a cobbler ho
built up a fortune, which Includes two of
the -finest farms In Adams county, three
business buildings In Hastings, some
stock In the Hastings Brewing associa
tion, bank deposits of nearly $10,000, be
sides other property.
Though he amassed this wealth while
residing In Hastings, he confided In no
one here and died without either known
friends or known relatives. The body has
since been held at the morgue for Iden
tification and tho estate has been widely
advertised In the hope that heirs might
rtomnnce and Tenured jr.
The narrative given by Mr. Tunnlctlffe
today is full of romance and tragedy and
astonishing details the first .connected
story that haa ever- been, .told -here-of
the strange man's career. Since removing
from -.Omaha to tfew Xprk City itr. Tuh
nlcllff has become a specialist Irt the
finding of lost persons, chiefly for metro
politan banks desirous of finding the
owners of abandoned deposits. On his
return from Europe early last September
his attention was attracted by the coun
trywide search for the' holra of O'Connor.
He Joined in the hunt, coming to Has
tings at once, whero he began' his inves
tigation. The facts as reevaled by hlnv)
are as follows:
Recollections of early settlers that a
vi oman with two children visited Hast
it gs In 1877 and' claimed to bo the wife
of O'Connor gave the first clue. Adve,r.
tlsements for the heirs were Inserted in
Omaha, Kansas City, St. Joseph and
other newpapers throughout the coun
ty. One of the many replies was from
John T. Culavln, formerly a ' conductor
on the Chicago & Northwestern railroad
in Iowa. Ho wrote that he knew a man
named O'Connor who lived In Hastings.
Neb. Whou interviewed by Mr. Tunnl
cliff e on September 25 at Omaha, Mr.
Culavln said that tho O'Connor he know'B)avni R Dej uol.( testified
Iiua tne rim or one ear missing. A lew
duyn after this Mr. Culavln received a
letter from his sister in Iowa asking him
If he thought the John O'Connor of Hast
ings could havo been the O'Connor' their
family had known. Culavln then came
to Hastings and identified tho body of
O'Connor as that of the man ho had
'known H1,d 1)0nted to the ear which had
the rim missing, a disfigurement which
had. escaped the notice of the undertaker
and others who had examined the body.
Mr. Culavln says O'Connor once told
him ho had lost part of his ear frorn
fieezlng whilo residing In the northwest.
Searching among his personal effects,
Mr. Culavln found a picture of O'Connor,
which ho says the latter gave him many
years ago, with the explanation that it
was taken when he was 21 years old.
The resemblance to O'Connor Is striking.
On the back of the picture U written,
'Compliments of John O'Connor, Hust
ings, Neb." Mr. Culavln also found a
! promlrsory note given by himself to
O'Connor In U8t for JS90. It waa marked
raid, the receipt being signed by
O'Connor. Culavln says this note waa
given in a land deal which he and O'Con
nor conducted In Iowa. The family auto

"It Is evident and notorious that th

the validity of the elections.
"Suppose, the Huerta-Blanquet UckeS

because lie was backed by a stroma
