officers refused to say where It was found
and no arrests were made.
Charges of Intentional nnfalrness on
the part of the Joe Polcar-Roberi Smith
combine have beon aroused at the rourt
house by publication of statements at
tacking the personel of the fall jury
panel. Members of the Board of County
Commissioners, asserting that they know

thousands of dollars of fees from Smith,
say they are not surprised by public at
tacks, but object to whst they call false
"Their Jury commissioner Issue la a
good one for a man who Is not in office
but wants to be," said Commissioner Mc
Donald. "Wild statements regarding Juries I
are easily made and contradictions go
unnoticed and as a matter of fact there
Is no rcaeon why there should not be a
Jury commissioner, except the added expense.
"It Is a serious thing, however, to cause
the public to believe that men who serve'
on juries are not of good character. Ths
result Is that the number of good men.

Rays Statement Not Trae.
"Of the 100 men drawn by lot for the
fall panel It la charged that one-third are
not listed in the city directory. In ths
first place, on Its face the statement I
a flat untruth. But when you take Into
consideration that a number of Jurors
are from out In the county, the fact thut
many have moved, left the city or died
since ths big list was selected nearly a
year ago and the further fact that typo
graphical errors are responsible for
failure to find other names In the di
rectory, this charge is without merit."
"Then, the accusation Is made that
many Jurors are saloon men or employes.
I hsve asked the Jury clerk as to this
and ha tells me that to his knowledge
there Is Just one saloon keeper and one
bartender on ths panel.
"There has been one jury scandal in
several years In Omaha, and I have
knowledge that detectives In the pay of
W. J. Burns and hired by a man promi
nent in politics handled the evidence
which brought about. this scandal.
"As a matter of fact, the Jury panel
now serving la composed of first-class
men, representatives of Omaha's best type
of cltisenahip, and fair-minded persons
should come to the court rooms and see
them It they desire Information," con
cluded Commissioner McDonald. "As
drawn, the Juries contain names of many
men of money and msny working men.
