parently had been running some distance,
tor tie was out of breath. He rushed by
tho door, roughly throwing his fare In
the box as he did so, and hurriedly took
a seat at the front of the car, said the
conductor. He also pulled his hat down
ever his eyes and pulled his cellar up
around his neck, Gunnerson asserted. '

A note addressed to "Art Hauser, City
Jail, Omaha," was received today. The
note was from a woman and was merely
signed "A Friend." The note quoted sev
eral verses from Scripture such as "Be
not deceived, Ood la not mocked," and
"Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he
reap." She advised Hauser not to com
Yilt suicide as he threatened, but to put
his faith In the Saviour.
Eaoh hour seems to bring some bit of
testimony or evidence that apparently is
drawing a net of facts about Hauser that
will disprove any defense he may make.
Practically every victim of the W. T.
Hause robbery has seen Hauser and
Identified him so emphatically that he has
made a clean breast of this offense, even
to revealing the location of the valuables
I'tnttd Jewelry In' Chicago.
After leaving Omaha two days after the
Hause robbery,, Hauser says he- went to
Chicago, where he pawned a pair of dia
mond ear screws, two alamond rings and
several minor articles.
Flora Chicago, he said, he Journeyed to
Cincinnati and bad entered the Jewelry
tatabUehmeat t Dlngnam-Bros. at Sixth
and Pins streets, whero . was offering
a diamond solitaire ring valued at $275
for sale: "I saw an officer coming and
I left It on the counter. I never went
back after It and for all I know It Is
there yet." said Hauser.
Then, according to his story, he trav
eled 'to Indianapolis, where he asserts
that the day before the murder of V.
31. fmlth he pawned two brooches taken
from the Hause residence and a watch
with a gold knife attached to the chain,
which belongs to Douglas Bowie. Hers
be also pawned two diamond rings. One
tielonglnff to Mrs. Hause and the other
n Mr. n ci Whitnev. For tne last

these articles are with the Burton Jew

Formerly Kmpljel Here,
Hauser told Captain Maloney that five
years ago he was employed In Omaha
s driver for the Omaha Express com
pany, and that he knows the city well.
Among articles takea from Hauser at
Wichita, and brought here are two police
badges, which he used and which have
been identified by Omaha persons as
Identical with the ones worn by the
fellow who robbed them.

TAFT SAYS SCHOOL
Former President, in Address to
Teachers, Advocates National
University for Pedagogies
MUCH VALUABLE TIME WASTED
Rochester; n. y., not. 24..
The conversion of the United States
bureau of education Into a National
University for School Teachers, was
advocated today by former President
William Howard Taft, in an address
before the New York State Teachers
Mr. Taft criticised the present
system of education in the , United
States as being in many Instances In
efficient and superficial and sug
gested that the federal government
nilgbt, .ihaeaghi' a system of , dngpec
tlon and criticism, aid the states In
bringing about a higher standard,
both .In respect to teachers and
Explaining his scheme for co-operation
of the federal and state authorities, Mr.
"Through Its bureau 'of education, the
national government might help to pro
mote state education by offering ma
chinery to the people of the municipality,
of a county, or a state, by which they
might. If they chose, have the schools
they pay for Investigated and the value
- " , -
"survey of officers of United States
bureau of education."
Higher Standards deeded.
Referring to his plan for making the
bureau of education a national university
for teachers. Mr. Taft said:
"By searching, and thorough teachers'
examination, the federal certificates
would acquire a high value for their hold
era and the professional qualification for
teaching would be generally Improved."
As a proof of the defects of the present
system, Mr. Taft referred to the report
of the Carnegie foundation for the ad
vancement of teaching,, which showed
that the local school superintendents of
some states cannot spell or writs good
English. - v
Referring to the criticism, which, lie
said, was widely and justifiable made
that American school children received
only a superficial education, Mr. Tart
"The criticism that we hesr from Eng
land of the Rhodes scholars ought to
give us anxiety as to our system of ed
ucation and bring te our minds thai our
standards are not as high as they should
be: that our discipline has a certain
degree of flabbiness."
Valuable Time' Wultl,
Mr. Taft declared that "There was a
most Important waste of valuable human
time In the years of the life of the boy
and the girl between and 14 years..
"In the German schools and in the
English schools." he said, "the amount
that, boys between and 14 are required
to commit may well command our ad
miration and wonder because It is so
out of proportion to the amount that we
require of our children. The German
youth at 15 la as well prepared to eater
a college course as are our boys of U and
1. He has made up three years by harder
work, longer hours and fewer vacations."
