REFUSED TO ADMIT
And Sunerintendent Rorera of the
County Hospital Says, "You
Bet Your life."
DIDN'T WANT THE "FLOATERS'
That Superintendent Fred Rogers
of the County hospital refused to ad
mit certain patients that were sent to
him for treatment at the hospital is
the charge made by County Commis
sioner Henry McDonald in explana
tion of his asking that the superin
lendent resign his position.
This charge was made by Commis
sioner McDonald in a letter written
to Superintendent Rogers after Rog
ers asked for explanation of the re
quest for the resignation, which came
a week ago.
"I have never intimated at any time
that there was graft in connection
with your management at the County
hospital," said Mr. McDonald in his
"You have not worked anv harder
. Fhan T liav tn malrf thp hnsnital a
Reason for Asking Resignation.
"You have at times refused, how
ever, to admit patients' sent by the
commissioners and members of the
staff of physicians. This is not your
privilege, as the county physicians
and medical staff are in authority
as to who shall be admitted. For
that reason your resignation is asked
Superintendent Rogers says he nev
er refused admittance to a patient
sent him, except in cases in which
the patient was not a resident of
Douglas county. "I have refused ad
mittance to some such floaters who
drifted in here when they were sent
out by the county physician, but
never when they were sent by the
county commissioners," said Rogers.
"The county physician has sent me
patients floaters that would be a
drug on our hands for two or thr.ee
years, maybe, if we took them in. I
have refused some such fellows ad
mittance, you bet your life.
Tells of Other Cities.
"In the other big cities the county
hospital does not accept such fellows
from the outside. They send them
back where they came from. Denver
would not accept floaters from Oma
ha. But here there is a tendency to
accept everything, because if they
stick around long enough they'll be
. voters after a while." .
Superintendent Rogers said he has
not been asked to attend the session
of the county commissioners Monday,
when it has been announced that the
superintendent's case would come up
, for consideration, "No, I have not
been asked to attend the meeting of
the commissioners," said Mr. Rogers,
"nor have I been officially .notified
that my case is to be taken up."
Dr. Lee Van Camp, county physi
cian, also makes the charge that Su
' perintendent Rogers has turned away
' some of the patients he has sent him.
Superintendent Rogers makes no
i effort to' deny this,, but holds that he
i was simply protecting the taxpayers
N of Douglas county from the- burden
I 'of "caring for sick that should have
t been cared for by other counties and
other states, since they were not resi
? dents here.
NEWSBOY RUN DOWN
BY WOMAN MOTORIST
Enrico Mellicor, an Italian newsboy
with a stand at Leavenworth and
Twenty-fourth streets, was struck by
a speeding automobile driven by a
woman about 4 o'clock yesterday aft
ernoon when he ran across the street
to sell a paper.
The woman did not stop to investi
gate the damage done, and no one
got the number of the machine. Dr.
Mevers. from the police station, ex-

bruised about the legs and back, and
took him to his home at Sixth and
FAMILY'S RETURN GIVES
BURGLAR GOOD SCARE
When Mr. and Mrs. Ed B. Wil
liams, 1024 South Thirty-seventh
street, returned home from a drive
last evening they heard sounds of a
burglar in the house. As their home
has been entered three times within
the last four months they were alert
and desirous of catching the offender
and called a policeman. A hasty ex--amination
showed that only a partly
worn suit of clothes was missing, al
though a number of valuable articles
were lying about where they could
have been taken with very little trou
ble. Mr. Williams thinks the noise
of their return must have frightened
the thief, who escaped while they
were opening the door.

By Small Twister
North of Ravenna
Ravenna, June 24. (Special.) One
of the worst storms this community
ever experienced broke Thursday eve
ning between 6 and 7 o'clock, follow
ing a hot and sultry day. The wind
did very extensive damage, blowing
down several buildings and windmills,
and badly injuring crops. A small
twister formed north of town, and in
its course wrecked the buildings on
the Charles Fiala farm, killing a val
uable horse; next in line was the farm
owned by W. F. Richardson and oc
cupied by Paul Secora, which was
littered with the wreckage of the
buildings. The next building en
countered was the W. R. Hankins
place, where one of the largest barns
in this part of the country was badly
scrambled. On each farm all the
outbuildings were wrecked, including
barns, but the residences uninjured.
Fred Hankins lost his barn, but it did
not seem to be in the path of the
storm. Some hail fell in places, and
rain fell in torrents all over this ter

FAIR HAVE BANQUET
Maywood, Neb., June 24. (Spe
cial.) The Southwest Nebraska Dis
trict fair, consisting of the twelve
counties in the southwestern part of
the state, held its first occasional
banquet Thursday evening at Perkin

Interesting talks on the fair were
made by Charles A. Liston, E. F.
Dickens, president of the association;
State Senator Willis Wilson of Cur
tis; Charles W. Meeker of Imperial,
John H. Bloedorn, Hayes Center;
James Sebastian, North Platte; Dr.
S. R. Razee, Curtis, and Joseph Per
kin, Maywood. The banquet was a
success in every sense and was given
for the purpose of stimulating inter
est in the fair. The association was
formed only about a year ago and
the fair given last fall was a decided
success. The fair this year is to be
held September 11-15, and everything
points to a bigger and better show

ACCUSED OF ATTEMPT
TO ROB, SANDERS IS HURT
A man giving his name as Eugene
Sanders, no address, it is alleged,
attempted to rob Mrs. Allen, who
runs a rooming house at 804 North
Sixteenth street, just after dusk last
evening. Mrs. Allen, who had
in her pocketbook, screamed and at
tracted the attention of a roomer,
who rushed in and grappled with
Sanders. Sanders was carrying a
knife, according to Mrs. Allen, and
in the mixup he received a deep slash
in his right hand requiring several
stitches, and a gash over his right
eye. He was taken to the police sta
tion and Dr. Myers patched him up
for a night in jail.

In answer to letters of invitation
sent out to swine breeders the coun

scores of letters are coming from the
breeders giving an idea of what they
will exhibit, and of the general inter
est that is being taken. While the
dates are conflicting with the state
lair dates in several of the states, not
ably California, and a few of the
breeders are writing that they cannot
exhibit here on account of such con
flict, the majority of them neverthe
less are anxious to exhibit at the na

The Victrola Withstands All Rigid
During two concerts given by Prince Lei Lent (Hr.
E. K. Rose) he sang in unison with his own voice as
reproduced by the Victrola and did not find it neces
sary to modify the volume of his voice to conform to
the reproduction. He simply used a loud tone needle.
The result was that his voice reproduced by the
Victrola was full, rich and vibrant and so natural
that few indeed, if any, of the many thousands who
heard the wonderful demonstration, could tell when
it was that Prince Lei Lani sang in person and when
his voice was being reproduced by the Victrola.
