NEWLY-MADE FRIEND TAKES
ALL THE COIN AND A WATCH
I E. Speed of Pleasantvllle. la., met a
atranger at the stock yard In South
Omaha Wednesday, with whom he became
eo well acquainted that Wednesday night
he shared his room with the man at the
Schllts hotel. About midnight he awoke
and found his acquaintance had departed
as had also 1125 and a watch belonging to
him. Speed has furnished the police a
good description of the man.
Astonishing revelations of lack of water
In the various packing houses of South
Omaha and the I'nlon stock yards under
the regime of the Omaha Water company j
and later the Omaha Water boar! were
made In federal court by John E. O Hearn,
superintendent of the Armour plsnt for
thirteen years prior to 191J. anJ now
with the same company In Chicago.
lie was a witness the suit of the Omaha
Water board against the city of touth
Omaha, tho lnlon Stock Tarda company
and the packing planta to prevent' the
defendant corporations from continuing
tc use the streets of South Omaha for
the mains of their water plant, which
they built after they were unable to get
sufficient water from the Omaha water
"We often had to shut down the plant
entirely for lack of water," said Mr.
O'Hearn. "At such times we sometimes
had much live stock on hand, anJ this
had to b0 fed. Sometimes the water
gave out entirely when washing of the
carcasses was going on and they '.sd to
be put In the cooling rooms without
fee Vp Fire Water.
"We even used up the water In our
fire reservoir. We used to draw all the
water out of this during the day for
operating purposes and then fill It up
at night. Of course we were supposed
to keep thla reservoir full all the time,
and If the inspectors of the Insurance
companies had discovered the practice
I don't know what we'd have done for
"I remember one occasion when alt our
water waa gone and there was no pres
sure at all from the city mains. We
connected our house pumps to the city
mains and pumped, but there was no
water at all In the malna."
Lewis Branstad. master mechan'c for
Swift's, gave testimony to the same ef
fect Charles W. Martin, an Insurance man,
told of the protracted negotiations be
tween ; the packing companies and the
underwriters regarding the water famine
and the final Installation of an inter
locking water system in the yarda ao
that all the pumps of the several packing
plans could be used to supply pressure
