As to Crooked Lawyers Two More Letters
FROM TIIH COMMITTEE:
OMAHA, Oct 31. Victor IloBewater, Editor of The Bee: On receipt
of your letter of October 1G, In reply to the committee's of October 13, tin;
Conimltteo of Inquiry of tho Omaha Bar association requested Mr. Francis
A. Drogan to nppear before it and enlighten the committee with regard to
your reference to him.
Mr. lirognn prompt- compiled and Htatc( that lie, with Mr. William
Ilalrd anil Mr. E. 1. Hmlth, wcro appointed n special committee by the
Judges of the district court some time In 1012 to Investigate certain com
plaints made against certain members of the local profession practicing !n
Omaha, and that this Mcclnl committee carefully Investigated nil complaint
received and reported to the Judges of tho district court recommending pro
ceedings against one lawyer, and that such matter is still in tho hands of tho
Judges of the district court, the special committee having no power to do
more man to make and fllo Its report. t
This Committee of Inquiry, on tho other hand, Is one nppolntcl by tho '
Omaha liar nsoclatlon and makes ltn report to such with regard t the
subject tnnttcr of the report mado by tho special committee to tho Judges
of tho district court.
The Committee of Inquiry, however, Is desirous of knowing any facts,
which apparently are In your possession, with reference to Illegal unprofes-j
slonal conduct on tho part of certain members of the legal profession
from tho veiled references which you havo mado In editorials appearing in
Tho Beo from time to time since tho editorial entitled "What Omaha Needs.'
The Committee of Inquiry again urgently requests that you promptly
place before It such facts as you havo and such complaints with regard to
any member of tho bar, and tho samo will receive Immediate nttentlon by
the committee. If you desire to appear beforo tho committee, it will sit at
a tlmo and place suiting your convenience; or, If you prefer that a tlmo
should be fixed, Monday, November 3, at 1:30 p. ni., In named, and the placu

TO THE COMMITTEE:
OMAHA, Nov. 2. Mr. Charles S. lilguttcr, Chairman Bar Association
Committee of Inquiry My Dear Sir: Pardon delay in answering your lot-
It also 1 ter tl" 10 unavoidable pressure of other business,
Tho Information you now givo confirms tho substantial basis of myi
charges, and Support the position I havo taken, namoly, that with hulls-'
cent ot the road between any two Riven I putablo evidence of unprofessional conduct in Itosscsslon of the bar and tho

I mado in good faith with the material at hand It is useless to furnMi further I

Aside from this, however, much of tho evidence of crooked work by j

& I of the mlsatinronrlated money waa couched un.
Since my last communication Mr. Balrd, who served as chairman of tho
pedal committee appointed by tho district Judges, has told me that tho
tlmo limit of his conimltteo expired nearly a year ago, and did not cover any
ot tho crooked work dono Blnco thon.
Since your letter further says that your association nnd conimltteo has
no power except ns a self-constituted body, nothing remains for mo under
tho circumstances but to repeat that "I have nothing to coininunlt'nto to
your conimltteo In secret different from what I have to communlcato to tho
public at largo through the columns of Tho Itc, in which thin subject will
bo freely discussed from time to tlmo ns tho exigencies may require."
Thanking you again for tho courtosy ot your invitation, 1 am, very
truly yours, VICTOR ItOSISWATEK,

Four hundred visitors filed through the
exhibit rooms at tho library Saturday, tha
opening night of the art shpw, and more
than 30 persons took advantage ot their
leisure Sunday afternoon to visit the art
exhibit. Tho greatest throngs, however,
are expcted during this week. The tx

evening this week, Including Sunday,
Many artlaU who never beforo have

been pure lias ed by visitors. Among thaw
are water colors by Miss Augusta Knight,
art Instructor at tha 'University of Omaha,
and Mlsa Lilian Ituderdorf, South Omaha.
Both wero sold to M. A. Hall. The por
trait of T. H. Tibbies, by J. Laurie Wal
lace, alio ha been sold.
It any nota of .disappointment has ben
voiced by visitors to the exhibit ot the
Omaha Art Olid, It haa been not con
cerning the character of the work shown,
but deploring a scarcity of tho black and
white drawings. Assurance has been
given that more of this popular variety
will be exhibited next year.
