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.

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.

Kansas Supreme Court Def ines 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 , You Will Have to Stay Up Late to-See the Eclipse Washington, Jan. 7.

BEELL SATS HE IS FIT ' January IS is the date set for the wrestling match between Marin Pies tina, the big Omaha Austrian, who has been making such a loud noise in wrestling circles the last six months' by hurling challanges at every grappler in sight, and Freddie Beell, the dimunitive scamp who once captures the world's champion ship from Frank Gotch on a -fluke and is trying to stage a comeback. The event will be held at the Boyd theater in Omaha. - A few months ago Plestina, in his broadside ofv promiscuous challenges, included the name of Freddie Beell, but at that time Freddie had visions of becoming a sheriff or a marshal or a constable or some other such of ficer which permits the occupant to wear a glittering and impressive star, and he ignored the defi. But the election didn't go the way Beell's am bitions lay so Freddie decided to( re turn to the wrestling game as a means of earning three squares per diem. After two months of constant and conscientious training Freddie de cide! he was lit, so he challenged Plestina. The shock almost killed Marin, who has been evaded by most allithe other wrestlers. 1ut after he recovered he lost no time accepting?

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. Three Hundred Candidates .

' 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. . , damn a U-BOAT WORKS HAVOC .
