Harken to This, You Omaha Lawyers;
Chance for Another Investigation
EdRar Ilownrd In Columbus TeleKwm.
Tho criino of perjury Is tho worst of crimes. Tho wlnklntr ot tha
Judicial eyo at palpable perjury leads many criminals to desperato deeds,
acting In tho belief thnt thoy can readily procuro perjured testimony 1
Last Sunday Tho Omnha Bee very ably discussed tho growth of tho
crime of perjury, and tho seeming winking of tho magistrates at this enor
mous offense. In order to glvo The Ileo a lino upon which to pursue its
efforts to purify tho Judicial atmosphere ot Omaha, we will rcproduco the
substance of n statement made to tho editor of the Telegram a few day
ago by n prominent citizen of Nebraska. This citizen visited a leading
Omaha saloon at 10 o'clock at night. Tho law closes saloon doors at 8
o'clock In tho evening, hut some of tho doors to this saloon were not
closed according to law. This citizen and a friend purchased two mugs
of beer, which was delivered to them in a sldo room connected with tho
saloon. While drinking tho beer a detective appeared and placed the
saloon proprietor under nrrest. The citizen went to his hotel, and was
soon visited by two prominent Omnha lawyers, who coached him as to tho
testimony ho should glvo on tho following day, when tho saloon keeper
would be arraigned in court Tho lawyers fixed up tho whole story for
tho man. Ho-was to testify that ho had appeared at tho saloon before- 8
o'clock in tho evening, and had then ordorod and paid for tho liquor,
which was delivered to him at 10 o'clock. Tho man said such testimony
would bo perjury. Tho lawyers said perjury meant nothing between
friends, appealing to tho citizen to protect tho saloon keeper who hat! vio
lated tho law.
There may be found upon tho membership rolls of the Omaha bar
tho names of somo magnificent men. But also on that roll are tho names
of some attorneys who make a practice of coaching witnesses to give per
jury evidence. The suggestion of the Telegram to Tho Omaha Bee if
this: All tho splendid efforts of Tho Bee to purify the Judicial atmo
sphere in Omaha will avail nothing as long us tho better element of
Omaha attorneys shall consent to consort with other attorneys who aro
positively known to encourage tho crime of perjury. If Tho Boo will do
a Httlo detective work, and then lay bare beforo one of tho clean district
judges tho proof of tho perjury seeking attorneys well, In that event,
even such a cowardly corporation nsjtho Omaha Bar association might con
sent to give Tho Beo and tho court somo little assistance in the work of
putting tho quicklime of the law upon tho putrid professional practice oi
some attorneys whoso names aro enrolled along with tho names of clean
lawyerH on tho roll of tho Omaha bar.

The storm of Saturday evening waa in
the nature of a water spout and be

of fifty miles, struck the Northwestern
line in a dozen places, coming down the
draws on either side, the water being
from one to six feet deep. Heavy grades
crumbled and washed away like sand

twenty to thirty feet wide, quickly be

a mile wide, all depending upon the width
of the valley through which It runs. The
precipitation amounted to more than four
