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 their behalf. 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.

Hardly had the Northwestern complete! repairs of the washouts along the Ver dlgre ' creek .'alley, when farther north, between Niobrara and Bonesteel, Satur day, night, the line for thirty-four miles was cut full of holes by a flood that swept down the Ponca creek valley.

On account of high water In the Pono.4 creek valley no work In the way of mak ing repairs and reconstructing was done Sunday.

Advices at headquarters here are tq the effect that it will be as late as Thursday before the line from Norfolk to Winner, S. D., will be oponed for traffic. The storm of Saturday evening waa in the nature of a water spout and be tween Niobrara and Fairfax, a distance 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 plies. The Ponca creek, a lazy stream twenty to thirty feet wide, quickly be came a roaring river from forty rods to a mile wide, all depending upon the width of the valley through which It runs. The precipitation amounted to more than four and one-half Inches Inside of an hour. The rain of Saturday nl?ht was heavy all through north Nebraska, extending cast Into Iowa and west almost to Wyom ing.
