FOR OMAHA AUTHORITIES
The problem of an alien Chinaman, or
one at least not a citlsen of Nebraska,
alleged to be Insane and now confined In
Jail because of his actions, has been re
ferred to the insanity board for solution.
Wong Men is supposed to be the celes
tial's name, and he Is said to have been
on his way from Duluth to San Francisco,
when taken Into custody at tho Union
depot,' because he Insisted upon kneeling
before officials and pray ing. to them In
cessantly.' '' ' - '
The authorities have reason to believe
he was born In this country, and If so
hs cannot be deported. One suggested so
lution of the case Is that he might be
plsced on 4 'train and sent back to Du
luth, for the Omaha authorities sar they
bavs no desire to tske care of an Insane
cltlxen of another state.
