City for $25,000. A transfer to the
federal court was obtained by coun
sel for the circus people. -:
Taking of testimony and arguments
of counsel in the case took the entire
week in federal court. John M. Kel-
ley, general solicitor for RingHng
Bros., came out from Baraboo, Wis.,
to make the plea for the, defense.
His defense was that the accident
never happened and that if it did
happen it was the result of an inde
pendent agency, because Officer Le
roy Wade had, in trying to stop the
runaway horses, deflected their course
to one side before - Rinker vras
struck. i ,
-The case was given to the jury at
7 o'clock Friday evening. 'The jury
deliberated until 10 o'clock, when it
was released until 9 o'clock Saturday
morning. At 4 o'clock, Saturday after
noon the jury made it plain to Judge
Woodrough that, it could not agree
and the judge dismissed it. -
"Million Dollar Dolls" Get
. Good Start at the Gayety
The "Million Dottar Dolls," with
Lew Hilton as chief fun promoter,
opened last night at the Gayety be
fore an appreciative audience. It is
a good show which starts to enliven
rather slowly, but once under way, it
rollicks ahead with a wealth of amuse
ment. -
Lew Hilton is the dynamo of the
whole works.- .From the rise of the
curtain till its final drop, he's on the
stage dancing, singing, playing good
tunes on an old cigar box with a
string attachment, or making puppy
ove to rat laaies. oiem jveiian laKesj
is good. Bob Ferns, a black-faced
mirth-maker, has a unique specialty
with some new stories with a tang
to them. He would get by even
without his song hit, "When the Black
Sheep Returns to the Fold." He sings
that to encores.
There's,. a little man with a kanga
roo curve in his spine who does a
juggling act which wins nrolonged
handclapping. He balances everything
from-" a feather to a horse (plaster
cast), on his protruding chin. He alsp
contributes a Charlie Chaplin act,
which 13 away above the average as
far as' imitations of the movie star go.
Among the ladies, the votes of the
audience orobablv want to Alice
Lazar, whose moid no artist would
scott at.. She can sing, too, and con
tributes "Fifi," "Ragtime Land" and
the "Dangerous Girl" to the delight
of the audience. Then there's Miss
Seymore, a lively, athletic girl, whos
singing ot lie May Be Uld, but He
Has Young Ideas" and other ditties
wins approval. Patricia Baker sings
several songs that get .deserved ap

Bootlegger, and the Jointist
r Topeka, , Kan., Jan. 7, The su
preme court of Kansas was called
upon today to determine the differ
ence between a bootlegger and joint
ist, in upholding a decision granted
Carl S. Scriven of Lebanon that the
council of that city in placing a tax
of $250 on his sweet cider 'business
should not refer .to it as bootlegging.
The definition of a bootlegger
worked out by supreme') court judges,
is a person who sells intoxicating
liquors on the sly, not from any par-,
ticular business location, but carry
ing his wares in his bootleg, his
pocket, or in some fitting hole-in-the-wall,
i - .
"Bufwhen a person ) establishes
himself in a definite place of business,
where, by skillful legerdemain he
can sell or pretend to sell the inno
cent juice of the apple as well as
beer both near and far and other
intoxicants, the niceties of the Kansas
language designate him as a jointist
and no longer in the plebeian class of
bootleggers." 1 ,

A few months ago Plestina, in his

of becoming a sheriff or a marshal or

Chalicf. on Which Is
Portrait of phrist, Is Found
New 'York, Jan 7. Portraits of
Christ and the apostles, which it is
believed may be authentic, are on an
old chalice dug up from the ruins of
Antioch and now in the possession of
a firm of art dealers in this city, it be
came known tonight. The chalice, ac
cording to the dealers, came directly
to them from the hands of the ex
cavators in 1910. It can be dated with
ccitainty to the second half of the first
century, A. D., says Dr. Gustavus A.A
tisen, archaeologist.
It was found by Arabs digging a
well in Antioch on the Arontes Syria.
At the depth of many meters they
came upon underground chambers
which contained the treasure.

Bushels of Bad Checks " ,
; Return to Business (Wen
' Checks that would fill a bushel bas
ket come back to the business firms
in Omaha every few weeks because
the person who gave the check has
no funds or because he chanced to
draw a check on the wrong. bank.
Three months ago the Associated
Retailers of Omaha decided to keep
a list of all the checks returned bv the
"bank for one reason or another. This
was not done with any intention ot
bringing any harm to the persons who
gave the checks, but for the purpose
of making a survey of the situation
to see what was the matter. The list
is now remarkably large and it is
found that the trouble simmers down
to two -situations, largely. One; is the
rase in which person makes a pur
chase in a store and then asks for a
blank check to fill out. He forgets
to change the heading of the check,
and thus issues aicheck on one bank
when his account is really in another.
The other chief difficulty is that per
sons do not keep a close enough rec
ord of their check stubs, as compared
to their monthly bank balance, and
thus write checks after their balance
hat been consumed. Though the law
now is rather strict against this kinti
ofv thing, cases are not, as a 'rule,
pushed unless it is quite plain there
is an attempt to. defraud. . ,
