BOOB LAND MUDDLE
HO NEARER AN END
Murdock Gives Boesche Version
of Case Now Before Sarpy
MANY TURNS TO THE TALE
A statement made by Attorney A.
H. Murdock representing Herman G
Boesche, against whom charges were
made by Attorney W. R. Patrick of
the South Side in regard to the re
instatement of the guardian of Mrs.
Julianne Boob Pope and subsequently
the restoration of her Sarpy county
property, alleged to have been taken
from her, brings the other side of the
Attorney Murdock denied all
charges made in the statement of At
torney Patrick. In relating his side
of the story he spoke as follows:
"The case was one of long stand
ing when Mr. Boesche took it uo.
Much litigation had been in courts of
aarpy county over the breakine ot
the will of the late Paul Boob and the
attempt to discharge the existing
guardian. As I understand it Mrs.
Pope had in her possession altogether
a little over 600 acres of land. 300
acres in her own right and the re
mainder merely at income until her
death when the property would revert
to the children.
Many Lawyers Involved.
'Both Mr. and Mrs. Pooe and the
heirs were dissatisfied over the trend
of affairs. A number of attorneys
had dabbled unsuccessfully in the
mixup and at one time, two of them
signed a contract to secure the dis
charge of the guardian for a consider
ation of $15,000. The case failed in
county court and was appealed to the
district court wnere the attorneys
dropped it. It was at this time, I
think, that Mr. Boesche took the mat
nrst a contract was signed up
which included a remuni-rarinn nf
$7,500. This was later annulled, to
make way tor a second contract which
includes a minimum fee consideration
of not less than $1,000.
Mr. Boesche after a time secured
a decree in the court of Judge Day
for the discharge of the guardian on
the grounds that Mrs. Pope was com
petent to manage her own business
Deeded to a Trustee.
'The entire estate was deeded over
to Enos T. Hughes, a banker ot
Gretna, as trustee. Later Mr. Boesche
secured a loan on the property at the
request of Mr. and Mrs. Pope, the
amount being $4,500. Two thousand
dollars of this went to Mr. Pope as
his share of the estate and the re
mainder was held by Mr. Boesche as
expense money to pay taxes, court ex
penses and his own fee. At the same
time eighty-two acres of the land, the
rightful share of the estate to Mr.
Pope was deeded over to Mr. Boesche
from Mr. Hughes, the trustee, to be
held by my client in trust for Mr.
"This is the true story of the case.

The Bee's Fund for
Free Milk and Ice
Yea,- it IS hot. It's uncomfortable
for all of us.
Suppose you were a widow with a
baby and two other children under
4 years. Suppose with your utmost
exertions you couldn't get milk for
them and that ice to keep the milk
cool and wholesome was out of the
question. What you do then?
This, in effect, is the situation of
many families in Omaha. The con
tributors to The Bee's fund are help
ing just such helpless children and
The fund is carefully spent by
nurses who visit the poor and not a
cent goes for anything except th life
necessities of these little ones.

guardian, resigned as guardian, stat
ing that there was no necessity for
the continuance of such an office.
Clerk James R. Wilson was appointed
in his stead.
"The case in district court of Judge
Leslie which comes up Thursday is
merely a demand on the part of the
court to show cause why the order to
discharge the guardian should be set
Defends Boesche's Fee.
"The statement that Mr. Boesche
offered Clerk James R. Wilson, guard
ian, a large fee if he would voluntarily
resign from his position is false.
What Mr. Boesche really did do was
to prevail upon the guardian to re
sign in the interests ot all concerned,
saying that whatever the court was
filling to award as fee compensation
in case of such action would be pleas
ing to his clients, the heirs and all
concerned. Also the statement that
Mr. Boesche went to Attorneys Nick
erson and Langdon of Sarpy county
and offered them 15 per cent of the
estate if they would withdraw from
the fight is false. Another statement
entirely false is that the entire estate
was deeded over from Mr. Hughes as
trustee to Attorney Boesche on the
night of the discharge of the guardian
Only eighty-two acres, the rightful
share of Mr. Pope by reason of the
settlement in court, were deeded to
Mr. Boesche to be held in trust for
Boesche Says Little.
"All of the heirs and Mr. and Mrs.
Pope were well satisfied with the dis
charge of the guardian and the allot
ment of the estate," he said yesterday.
"I have affidavits from each which
prove this beyond question. As to
the other charges made, they are all
false. The case has been one of long
standing and , all concerned were
highly pleased with so successful a
settlement. As far as my fee is con
cerned, I have an itemized account
of all the expenses of the court, taxes
and other charges made. No one can
doubt but that they are reasonable."
The crv for a new park and boule
vard is still heard on the South Side.
Months ago a campaign was started
to have a boulevard built along
Thirteenth street between Riverview
and Mandan parks, but nothing came
of it. Of late residents of the West
Q street district have begun an or
ganized effort for a combination
playground and park in their dis
School Board Will Build.
Work on the new school building
to take the place of the old South
Central schoolhouse at Twenty-fifth
and M streets will start just as soon
as workmen have cleared away the
brick and debris of the old building
just torn down. The Board of Edu
cation has issued plans for a unique
building a one-story, U-shaped af'
fair to take the place of the old one.
The playground will be in the center
of the lot and rooms with light on
both sides will be built in a U shape.
This is calculated to settle the prob
lem of small playground space and
also the question of light, which has
bothered "building contractors not a
Truck Haul Increase!.
Truck after truck is passing nightly
through the South Side loaded to the
limit with hogs for the local live
stock market, stockmen are con
vinced that the new plan of trans
portation will become a permanent
as well as a popular one. To date
more than fifty carloads of hogs
have been hauled to the market over
this route from towns in Iowa rang
ing from fifteen to thirty miles dis
Inconvenient railroad schedules
are the principal cause for the new
method of transportation. Farmers
have explained that the shrinkage
due to hauling stock ten or more
miles from the farm to the railroad
station is far more than it is when
the swine are hauled direct by auto
mobile truck to the Omaha yards.
Transportation schedules also neces
sitate daylight hauling, which takes
time and money, while the truck
hauling can be done far more con
veniently after working hours', just
before dusk. The system, it is cal
culated, will save considerable money
for farmers of Iowa and the sur
rounding territory who are hampered
by poor railroad service.
Third Try at Safe.
Burglars failed a third time in an
effort to blow the steel safe in the
office of the Curo Mineral Springs at
Nineteenth and N streets this morn
ing at 3 o'clock. Manager William
Yaker of the Springs telephoned the
police that he had found his safe
hammered into uselessness, but still
unbroken. Detectives found that it
had been "soaped perparatory to
using the soup. 1 lie case was
clearly one of amateurs.
Nothing in the office was reported
missing, hntrance had been gained
by breaking into a rear window.
