Joker is Found in
Workhouse Bill by
A "Joker" In the workhouse law passed
by the last legislature has destroyed pos
fibility for the present establishment of
such an institution by Douglas county, in
tho opinion of members of the oounty
bosrd. They have informally agreed that
the bond issue made possible by the law
will not be submitted to the voters.
The "Joker," which was discovered by
Frank McDonald, superintendent of the
Minneapolis ' workhouse, who came to
Omaha by invitation of the Omaha Com
morrtal club, is. a clause requiring that
prisoners intended for a county work
house should be sentenced "to the county,
Jail," thus leaving control of them In
the hands of the sheriff.
Mr. McDonald' statement that this
lause renders the law practlcaly worth
lass has been accepted by members of
the county board and Commencial Club.
As a result men who are Interested in
the securing of a workhouse have al
ready begun plans looking toward estab
lishment of a city workhouse to be se
cured under a new charter, to be pre
pared by a charter commission.

investigation to ascertain the cause
of the fire that destroyed nineteen
loaded cars in the freight train at a

The Investigation has failed to develop
'anything tangible. Conductor Kli-c was

When the discovery was made the
train was moving at a speed of about
fifteen miles per hour. It was In a cut
about thirty feet deep. The enciheer
slopped his train and the fireman and
brakeman went back as close to the fire
te they could get. There they cut oft
the burning cars and the balance of the
train pulled ahead! out of the fire sons.
With the other cara there was notlv.ng to

men in the cars, but they were unable to
