THIS BEK: OMAHA, SATVHDAY, FEHM'ARY 7, 1014.
Six months have passed since the close
of the second Balkan war, and the lib
rarians nro apparently hopeful that much
of the terrible Indictment that was
brought against them by oil Europe has
become a confused memory. They seem
to feel that by declaring others to bo the
perpetrators of their crimes they may win
bellof. To that end they have Issued
pamphleU bearing governmental authori
zation and have sent them broadcast.
These pamphlets contain laboriously con
structed fabrications, false affidavits
without number, and even the revival of

that he would not be responsible for the

killed, among them a bishop and a priest.
The Bulgarians resorted to the most revolting-forms

MANLEY DINED BY AD MEN;
Club Parts with President, Who As
sumes New Duties.
AFFECTION IN EVERY SYLLABLE
Members Kxpress Hrgrnrd for Him
anil Present Him with Fob
na Token of Their
A little touch ot sentiment crept Into
tho Jollification of tho Ad club at their
dinner In the olive room at tho Romo
hotel last night. In honor of Robert H.
Mantey, retiring president of tho organ
ization. Between the songs ot good
cheer, songs for which tho Ad club Is
famous, the regard which the members
have for Bob Manlcy emerged. It started
with the Initial speech of Harry Ma-
hatfey, who presided, and did not finish
until "Our Bob," ns ho was styled by
the crowd, closed his spco.tj of appre
ciation. Charles R. Diiffle spoke ot the guest
of honor as tho man "who Is not only
liked, but universally respected by all
who know him, for what he Is and for
what ho has done." E. 8. Parker told
of his ilrst meeting with Bob Mantey,
how he had looked up to him as the rep
resentative of the Fremont Herald, later
as advertising manager and now as com
missioner. Brlx" Kline related more of tho re
cent history of Mr. Manley and told of
the affection which Ad club men had
held for htm. I Whitehead explained
that tho dinner was a ratification ot the
appointment of the Commercial club and
advised Mr. Manley to do more things
for Omaha. Charles Doherty, tho blush
ing bridegroom of the club, and O. T.
Eastman joined In a humorous turn
which ended In tho presentation to R.
II. Manley of a gold fob bearing tho
namo of tho club on one side: on tho
other Is engraved, "Our Bob, from Ills
Ad Club Friends," and the date, Febru
ary 5, 1914.
In Bob Manlcy's reply there was a
touch of sentiment, for he said that he
considered both tho dinner and tho token
of remembrance a mark of affection and
would regard them as such.
Then tho -crowd sang:
For he's a Manley good fellow,
For he's a Manley good fellow,
.For he's a Manley good lellow,
So say we all of us
O. T. Eastman, Insisting that since
there was no Ad club work for tho Ad
club to co, It should engage In the work
which some other organization should
do, suggested that the Ad club support
the bond lssuo for better parks and
boulevards hero. Following his speech
a resolution was passed asking that a
committer bo appointed to secure Infor

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Feb. 6.-(Speclal.)-t.abor
Commissioner Charles Pool, who has been
In tho limelight tho last week In connec
tion with charges of nonenforcement of
tho act regulating the , hours ot female
labor, has Issued tho following state
ment: If thoso well meaning persons who have
seen fit to criticise me for what they
aro pleased to term my "failure to en
force fully tho provisions of the law
pertaining to the employment of females
tit tho city of Omuha," had made sumo
slight Inquiries they would do doubt have
been surprised to learn that the legis
lature appropriated tho munificent sum of
$3,000 for tho conduct of tho bureau of
labor for the fiscal year beginning April
1, 1913. and closing April 1. 1914.
Of this $3,000 appropriated there was
expended up to February 4. 1914, 2,64!18,
leaving a balanco of $457.72 to carry tho
department up to April 1, 1914. Ot tho
amount expended I.S5&.S5 was paid to In
spectors, the two In Omaha receiving
$749.43 up to November, when It was nec
essary to dispense with their services be
cause ot the funds being bo nearly ex
hausted. Tho average expenditures of the depart
ment for all purposes (other than the
salaries of tho deputy and stenographer
In the office) waa $211.83 per month, which
Includes printing. Inspections, postage and
all necessary supplies for the department.
Should the expenses for February and
March not exceed $211.K per month the
department will have a surplus of $31.02
April 1, 1914.
Tho services of the Inspectors were of
great benefit to the department and
would net have been dispensed with had
It been posslblo to find a way In which
to meet their salary claims.
Tho department has exorcised duo dili
gence In Investigating and correcting all
the evils that have been brought to Its
attention, yet It is posslblo thero have
been vlolatllons of tho law. Any fair
minded person will admit that whllo
there are laws thero will be Infractions

The taxpayers of tho state, have a right
to demand tho practice of economy by
their public officials, and the records of

Much Money Saved in
By Auditor's Rule
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Feb. 6. (gpcclal.)-Dlscus-
slon-over tho cost of bringing back to
Nebnska fugitives from Justice and a
comparison of the two last administra
tions along that line has resulted In a
showing mado by Deputy Auditor Minor
taken from tho records of the office.
These records show that under tho pre
vious administration there was n total
of 2S0 fugitives brought back to tho state
In tho last year ot Mr. Aldrlch's term,
costing $12,317.48. Of these 233 were ap
prehended wlthjn (he state and cost
$7,849.ftl, whllo twenty-seven wero brought
from ether states at a cost of $4,497.65.
Tho average cost for thoso within the
state was $33.69, whllo tho average for
bringing back thoso who had gone to
other states was $100.67.
During 1913 It cost the stato $10,143.20
to got back 233 fugitives. Two hundred
of theso wore caught within the state at
a cost of $5,821.27, while thlrty-threo got
far away enough so that It cost $1,323.93
to get them back. It cost on an average
of $29.10 to bring back thoso caught In
Nebraska, whllo tho average cost to get
thoso outsldo tho state was $131.03.
It will bo noted that the avorago cost
of gcitlng prisoners, blth within and
without tho state. Is much less tho last
year than In previous years and Is prob-
amy auo to tho rlgld rulo of Auditor
Howard that all officers bringing back
fugitives from Justice shall present a re
ceipt for every cent of money paid out
on tho trip.
Thj records disclose that the highest
amount paid to any officer for tho re
turn of a prisoner was In 1912, when
Sheriff Ed Evans of Boono county re
ceived $669.45 for expenses of going from
Albion to Edmonton, Canada, for Henry
Phllmalee, wanted for cmbezzloment.
Phllmalee exhausted every legal means
posslblo to keep from being brought back
to the state nnd Evans was kept In Can
ada fcr several weeks fighting tho court.
In an effort to get his man. Ho finally
lando-I him and brought him back to tho
state. Other amounts run up to $200 and
more and are mostly for trips to the Pa
cific crast, which seemed to bo tho place
where most of tho fugitives made tracks
lor wncn leaving the state.
