' Chief of Detectivei Grants Request
' Made by Ape-Man in Expecta
tion that He Will Make
Clean Breast of All.
MAKES DISCLOSURES ON TRIP
Makei Promise to Maloney that He
WiU Tell All in Further
DRESSED NEATLY IN BLUE SUIT
m Arthur Hauser, accused of the
murder of W. II. Smith, Woodmen
of the World cashier, arrived la
Omaha shortly after noon yesterday
In the custody of Detective Maloney
and Officer L. T. Finn.
Maloney evaded a crowd which
had gathered at the depot and the
city Jail to see the prisoner. The
party got off the train at Albright
and In a private automobile was
rushed to Omaha and directly Into
the garage at the rear of headquar
ters. Hauser was then taken
.through an underground passage
from the garage to the Jail, with the
result that newspaper men, photog
raphers and spectators were disap
pointed. Several secured Just a glimpse of
the fellow, who utterly belies the
photographs published of him. The
prominent nose and weak mouth are
evident, but the man himself is bet
ter appearing, decidedly, than his
Ha user Well Drfmrd.
Dressed in a blue serge suit, with clean
linen, a brown Fedora hat and well poi-
shed shoes, the ape-man betrayed little
of his Simian characteristics. He was
handcuffed, and one foot was encased
in an Oregon boot, but despite this fact
he hurried more than the officers In an
effort to avoid public scrutiny. There
was a (rest scrambling of photographers
to snap the fellow, but their efforts
were of little or no avail.
Promises to Tell All.
"He asked that no one be allowed to
take his picture, and until I have talked
with him further his request will be
(ranted," asserted the captain. "Neither
will h be Interviewcd-at present. I have
his promise that if his requests are met
he will make a clean breast of every
thing." Just what Maloney meant by "a clean
breast of everything" he refused to di
vulge, although he asserted that Hauser
made some startling disclosures enroute
from Wichita to Omaha.
The party left Wichita last Mght and
were escorted to their car by a number
of plain clothes men. A crowd gathered
at the Wichita, station in such volumo
that the prisoner was taken through the
baggage room to avoll it. Along the way
word had leaked out that Hauser was on
the train, but no demonstration was made

IN EAST IS GOOD
Financiers Longing to Loan State
Half Million Dollars at 3 3-4
Per Cent Interest
NO WAY TO TAKE UP OFFER
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Nov. 23. (Special.)
Whether it is the State university
foot ball team or Joe Stecher, or
whether it is a reputation for honesty
that has put Nebraska in the top
notch class with the financiers of the
east, is not known, but according to
information received by State Treas
urer Hall, New York money dealers
would be tickled to death to loan
Nebraska several hundred thousand
dollars and only charge 3 per cent
They have written Treasurer Hall that
"we would be glad to make a loan of
(300.0VO to fX1,000 to the state of Nebracka
for tlx n.onths at 3 per cent,
with the understanding that it is
to lie renewed at maturity at
tho same rate as often as desired. This
would not only put you in a position to
take care of the excess demand on all
loans In the various political subdivisions
of your state, but, by taking these loans
at 5 per cent you could make a profit of
114 Per cent."
The plan looks good to Treasurer Hall
from a financial standpoint, but the state
not borrow money without an act of
tho legislature and there is no law which
will permit It to go Into the brokerage

AGAINST HALF IN
Convicted Clairvoyant Says Hit
Profits in Four Months Exceeded
HE WORKED UNDER PROTECTION
CHICAGO. Nov. 23. Testifying
today at the trial of John Halpln,
former captain of police, on trial for
biibery, "Jlmmy" Ryan, convicted
c!alrroyaot,wlhtfJfcf, testified . that
operating under police protection Bis
P'oflts from clairvoyancy , between
October, 1912, and March, 1913,
amounted to between $60,000 and
This, he said, included Ms share of
$16,600, which Mrs. Hope McEldow
ney of La Crosse, Wis., gave him to
invest in "copper stocks."
In March, 1913, he said he went to his
home in Wyoming, but was brought back
to Chicago two months later by a detec
tive from the states attorney's office.
Ryan told of "working" under the
alias of "Prof. Charles T. Crane" and
of meeting in his brother Frank's clair
voyant parlor, Walter O'Brien, a former
subordinate of Halpln's and recently
found guilty of bribery.
"O'Brien is a nephew of Captain P.
D. O'Brien, who was suspended last
nlsht as chief of detectives on charges
that he had been Instrumental In rals-
Irur a forced fund for the defense of
I his nephew and other policemen Involved
I in the clairvoyant graft cases.
John E. Northup, attorney for Halpln,
charged that the suspension of Captain
O'Brien had been engineered so as to
intimidate policemen who might be called
to testify for his client.
Frank Johnson, jr., first assistant
states attorney, entered a vigorous de
nial to this Insinuation.
Kyan testified that Walter O'Brien told
him to go ahead with plans for an
elaborate ''place" on North Stat street,
but to "be careful" because In that lo

NEW YORK, Nov. 23. An impor

the case against Karl Bueni, manag
ing director, and employes ot the
Hamburg-American line, charged
with sending supply ships to German
warships in the -Atlantic, has left the
Jurisdiction of the United Slates. He
is now In Bermuda.
This became known today when the
court reconvened for the second day
of the trial, which passed the Jury

sion began with the securing of the
twelfth man. The name of this wit
ness and what cog he waa In the
government's machinery were not
disclosed by Roger D. Wood, as
sistant district attorney, In charge of
the prosecution. Mr. Wood said,
however, that the man knew he
would be wanted to testify.
Immediately after the Jury box was

defense, notified Assistant Attorney
Wood that the defense would withdraw
that part of the previous admission per
taining to the alleged connection of Cap
tain K. Boy-ed. German naval attache,
with the acts charged by the government.
Thla part ot the admission made by the
defendants . stated that Captain Boj'-ed

been carried on largely under the naval

that Captain K. Boy-ed, German naval

spent under his direction here.
"We expect to show," Mr. Wood said,
"that this conspiracy extended from jsew

LONDON, Ne"v72S. The latest
newg from the Balkans has revived
hope in England that Monastir may
hold out long enough to enable the
French and British forces to effect a
Junction with the Serbians. The.
Rome and London legations of Ser
bia have received reports of a great
Serglan victory northeast of Prlstlna,
but aa these advices gtva neither de

to their Importance.
It Is now believed allied forces which
may take refuge on Greek territory are
hardly likely to be subjected to attack
from the rear. The most significant In
dication aa to the present attitude of
Greece Is contained in remarks made by
M. Rhallts, Greek minister of Justice,
who Is quoted In a press dispatch as hav
ing complained bitterly of methods
adopted by the entente allies. He argued
that their tardiness In bringing effective
support for the Serbians made Greek par

no reason to fear danger If they should
be forced across the Greek border.
