band. Corcoran dived to his death from the
Douglas street bridge Tuesday night in
the plain view of a half score of pedes
trians on the bridge and a street car
hiavily laden with passengers.
Many of those who saw the act thought
It was a "bug" swimmer who made the
foolhardy leap on a wager.
Corcoran, despondent because of his In
ability to obtain employment took his
life, his widow believes. He borrowed
her last dime to get across the bridge to
get a Job and failure la believed to have
exhausted his last bit of determination.
For two weeks he had tramped the
streets seeking work. During that time
Mis. Oorcorsn took In washing to support
their two little boys, William, aged ft,
and James, aged 4.

Asquith Says that
Germans Could Not
See British Strength
LONDON, Sept. 1 One of the roots of
the present war was the grave and seri

empire that German culture and German
spirit led Emperor William and the Ger
man people Into, said Premier Asquith
In addressing a recruiting meeetlng at
Edinburgh, Scotland, tonight.
The Germans were led Into the miscal
culation, he said, that the British colonies
wanted to cut connections with the
mother country and that India was In
"What a fantastic dream and what a
rude awakening," exclaimed the premier.
"It has been proved that Germany by
Its own deliberate act made war," Mr.
Asquith continued, adding that Germany
has made tiu attempt to controvert that
fact except by the circulation of wanton
falsehoods. It Is In the Interest not only
of the British empire, but of civilisation,
the speaker declared, that the arrogant
claim of a single power to dominate the
destinies and development of Europe
should be resisted.
T. R. Believes and
Hopes He Will Not
.Be Candidate in 1916
BALTIMORE. Sept. 19.-Edward C. Car
rlngton, Jr., republican nominee for the
United States senate, made public a letter
under date of August 27. last, from Colonel
Theodore Roosevelt, which, after saying
'.'there are certain states where the re
publican candidates have declared they
are for me In 1916." goes on to say:
"As regards the announcement for my
self. I do not regard It as amounting to
anything, because, in the first place, I
not only hope, but at the present time
believe, that I will not be a candidate
In 191, and also, what Is more Importsnt,
because It Is of no earthly consequence
to endorse me unless the principles for
which I stand are endorsed."
Colonel Carrlngton waa an ardent sup
porter of Colonel Roosevelt In the last
piesldentlal campaign, but afterward re
turned to the republican party.

Another phase of this question is the fact that any
sort of a house depreciates in value from year to year
and in other cities the increase in value of the ground is
frequently more than eaten up by necessary repairs or
new buildings... This situation, however, is not true in
Omaha, and the increase in value of two or three sub

take care of any depreciation in your building, but re

Thrifty people who are seeking safe and profitable invest
