Crowe is being heard in a suit in which
J. M. Macfarland, lawyer, is seeking to
recover 15,000 attorney's fees from the
estate of James Callahan, Crowe's ac
complice. Macfarland alleges that Callahan prom
ised him 15,000 to be paid whenever he got
the money, if the attorney should secure
his acquittal of the kidnaping charge

the judge directed that Jones be brought

Redlck upheld the pratlee of requiring

"This move is in the interest of ths
poor man," said Murphy. "In many In

The city council committee of the wuole

exploit their "sturf." which trade word

Marpby Offers to Be.
Ths situation is growing acute. During
the meeting Attorney It B. Z unman, for
the White people, stated he had Informa
tion that at a recent Chicago show two
cars of the I. France company were ex
hibited with signs asserting they had been
sold to Omaha. Bert Murphy of the local
I .a France agency immediately Jumped
up and offered to bet fwOO that the alleged
Chicago Incident did not occur.
Attorney Zimman, however, brought out
the fact that a few days after the bids
were opened by the city council the Lo
France people had a private hearing at
night time In Commissioner Wlthnells
office and that other bluders had not been
Invited to that conference.
"If reports are true that the La France
apparatus has been selected by the
superintendent and chief of the fire de
partment, then we are foreclosed from
any hearing." declared Mr. Zimman. "but
I believe it would be well for the com
missioner and the chief to tell the other
commissioners and the people just where
in the La France machine will best
serve the public Interests."
Withnell Prefer La Fraaeo.
Commissioner Withnell replied that the
selection or selections would be made by
the entire city council, but, speaking for
himself, he would buy the La France,
because all members of the fire depart
ment want that type of machine.
C. J. Anderson, one of the bidders, of

stable In every respect as the La France
for $600 less per car, or $10,009 less on ths
entire Job. Mr. Anderson took note that
the city did not specify In the pro
posals Just what kind of cars wanted,
but left that to the bidders.

traffle-ho saw only Mark Page. She
had become almost an obsession with
him now, and though It was not yet
tima for court and there were other
clients beside the stats whose buslneai
claimed his attention In his other office,
hs had drifted here, as he had drifted
unwittingly each morning to mentally
test the links In the chain of his evi
dence against her.
It should be strong enough to bind her
upon ths merciless wheel of the law,
and yvt he waa conscious that more
than one of Its links was weak so weak.
In fact, that not even his masterly sum
ming up for the Jury had bean entirely
a bio to gloss It over. He did not doubt
for a moment that Mary Page waa
guilty of the murder of David Tollock,
but he had not proved her so to his own
Satisfaction. The intricacies of what
had at first seemed so simple a case had
multiplied with almost Incredible rapid
ity, and each clue that it had seemed
must throw an illuminating light upon
the labyrinth of mystery had proved In
turn to be mere will-o'-the-wisps that led
deeper into the maze.
Hs had shown that Pollock was In her
eyes an enemy; he had proved that the
dead man was a wooer whose pursuit
was unwelcome; he had snown that
twice during the recent years Pollock
had forced Mary to promise to be his
wife, but that once the necessity for that
step was removed she had claimed her
freedom again. . She had everything to
gain by his death, which was surety mo
tive enough; added to which, If she were
not guilty he felt she would not have

some faint rlne that would give a chance
for "fresh evidence." In the meantime.
It was 1-anR.lon'a turn, and the keen
tyed district attorney wondered curiously
Just what defense he would bring. Lang
don's continual refusal to rrom-examlne
the witnesses for the state had naturally
kept his defense wonderfully well hidden.
Vet, when so much of the testimony had
concerned Langtfon himself, crona-ex-

farce, and tho prosecutor did not ncllevo

The newspapers were, however, full of
theories as to what tho defense would
be. Sevoral claimed that It would be the
"unwritten law," the guarding of Mary

ha found that not even his support of

him; while still a third said that ths real

the third theory brought a frown to the
lawyer's face. Suppose Lansdon himself

A good Index of a city's slse and busi

According to this Index Omaha Is the
eighteenth city of the United States. A
tabulation of amounts paid at the vari
ous offices of ths larger cities has Just
been received here from Washington.
It places Omaha well in advance of
such cities as Denver with 144,000 people,
Indianapolis with 244,000, New Orleans
with 339.000 and Baltimore with 658.000.
The figures given are for money orders
paid and a large part of those are pre
sented by ths business houses, having
been received from customers in payment
It is thus that the money orders paid
are an indication of the business done by
a city. '
In Omaha the money orders cashed in
ths last three months of 1914, were $1,067,-
