POLICE JUDOK OMAHA.
Combing West End
for Immoral Places
"Silk stocking society sleuths" Is what
the men were Instantly dubbed 'around
police headquarters when officers of
Blender build and capable of wearing sty
lish clothes were told to comb the)
healthy residence districts for Immoral
Since the Invasion of "Nob Hill" by the
tnore prosperous class of underworld
Characters became known to the police
and to respectable residents tho west part
of town Is In a flurry of excitement.
Several women routed out of palatial
mansions have been living there and
operating for months without even the
next door neighbors knowing. The abun
dance of automobiles In the neighborhood
cloaked the traffic of taxis and the
places were so managed that what few
sounds of revelry escaped to the street
led policemen on the beats to believe that
what they saw were house parties.
One thing that fooled the police for a
long time was the class of men who vis
ited the places.
Building Permits .
' Show Much Growth
August building permits show a sub
stantial Increase over the same month
last year. Last month saw $521,065 worth
of buildings started, while for the corre
sponding time a year ago there was only
1476.050. Thus far there have been 1,03a
new buildings put up In Omaha In 1914,
making a total of about $3,790,363.
ITALIANS DRIVEN FROM
FRANCE BY THOUSANDS
. How 40,000 Italians, with their families,
- were driven from France at the begin
ning of the war and took refuge In
Switzerland is told In a letter to J. J.
Hess from a friend at Zurich. The refu
gees were cared for by the Swiss army,
which has already mobilized 300,000 men
to enforce neutrality and repel possible
Invasions. Provisions are so scarce that
stores have been stormed. Only one
pound of any commodity is sold at a time,
and rich people are trying to buy up
large supplies of food.

Ir. McCrann, reviewing the history of
the struggles of Ireland, said in part:
"If Ireland for over 100 years has fought '
a bloodless ffght by pure statesmanship

eminent authorities as Dr. Dillon have
shown that. Germany Is not responsible
for the crisis. However, we are willing
to let history decide whether Germany
