AN UNDERTONE OF CAUTION
New Tork. Feb. I. For a brief period to
day's market gave promise of retrieving
much of the ground lost in yesterday's i
severe and general setback, stocks displaying
comparative strength toward the forenoon,
after an Irregular opening.
Except for the flrst and flnal hours, oper
ations were on a moderate scale, the ag
gregate being only a little more than half
of yewterday's large turnover. The under
tone of caution Indicated that the uncer
tainties respecting relations betweon Wash
ington and Berlin still remained the fore
The heaviness of the last hoar was ac
centuated by a steady offering of high
grade Investment rails, which, yielding with
unexpected ease. SL Paul. Reading, Northern
Pacific and Erie second preferred fell 3
points each. Union Pacific and Canadian Pa
cific 4 and New Tork Central almost 0
points, with I to 2 points in other trans
portation Issues of equal prominence.
United Slates Steel at one time was as
high as $1,04 to, 1 points over yesterday's
closing figure, but receded to lOOSi, closing
at a small fraction over Us minimum.
Other shares of the same elass lost 2 to 4
points, with I to T for oils, 8 to 4 for
motors and shippings, Baldwin Locomotive
and Peoples Gas.
Brooklyn Rapid Transit, which developed
weakness prior to the recent slump, lost 6
points, selling down to U to, its lowest price
since J910. American Tobacco featured the
high-priced Industrials, dropping 13 point
on one sals. Total sales, 1,300,000 shares.
An early rise ot li point in American
Beet Sugar was later explained by the In
creased and extra dividends declared on
that stock. Republic Iron's extraordinary
statement for 1916, showing not profits three
times In excess of the previous year, was m
keeping with recent exhibitions of similar
industrial corporations, '

Family of Nine Has No Food, No
Fuel; Father Drinks for a Living
One of the extreme cases of desti
tution brought to the attention of
the Associated Charities concerned a
family of husband, wife and seven
"Practically nothing to eat, nor any
fuel in the house. Father drinks for
a living. Oldest child 13 years," was
the resume of the case given by Su
perintendent Doane. Explaining what
she meant by "drinks for a living," she
stated that the man does menial work
in saloons for drinks and his meals.
"We are eoinir to have that man
taken in hand," said Mrs. Doane, with
an air of determination.
Many calls for fuel and food were
received at the charities office.
An able-bodied man called for food.
Mrs. Doane told the man she would
heb him or family over any immedi
ate needs, but she insisted that the
an take a job which ahe would re
fer him to. While Mrs. Doane was
telephoning about the work the ap
plicant quietly slipped out and van
ished into the outer world.

VICE IN HOTELS,
GRAND JURY HEARS
Scarlet Women Menace Mor
als of Young Omaham, High
Said to Have Reported.
NO BOOZE PROBE LIKELY
Vice conditions in Omaha are be
ing probed by the grand jury. Su
perintendent F. A. High of the Anti-
Saloon league testified before tne
star chamber body and it is said his
evidence related to prostitution and
illegal liquor telling.
It is understood that the Anti-Sa
loon league man told the inquisitors
that prostitution, in his opinion, is
becoming an increasingly serious
menace to the morals of the young
people of Omaha. Mr. High's most
startling testimony, rumor has it,
traced the evil to certain hotels.
Mr. High related to the grand jury.
it is aaid, an incident he alleged oc
curred in a well known Omaha hos
telry, in which a young man from
out of town registered. Boiled down,
the tale narrows to a conversation be
tween the young stranger and a bell
boy, the latter insisting that the guest
should have company and 1 conhoing
that he was just the person to see
that the "visitor to our city" was pro
vided with a right smart female com
l he Anti-saloon league superintend
ent advised the grand jury, so rumor
has it, that he did not believe it worth
while to bring indictments for viola
tion of liquor laws, inasmuch as pro
hibition goes into ef(ect May 1,
Another witness subpoenaed before
the grand jury was former Police
Magistrate Foster. His testimony is
understood to have been along the
lines of the prevelence of vice.
M. Andreesen. county parole and
adult probation officer, got one of the
fateful subpoenaes requesting him to
divulge information as to what lie
knew about lawlessness.
Among other witnesses able to
show the proper credentials to the
lynx-eyed bailiff that they had been
ordered before the body of secrecy
Bernard J. McArdlc, state fire in
Edward T. Morris, city fire warden
John T. Dunn, city detective.
James Kenelley, city detective.
C C. Christiansen, secretary of the
Eagles' club and proprietor of a
wholesale and retail tobacco store at
Twenty-fifth and N streets, South
Frank T. Gates, Omaha attorney
and a captain in Company u. Fourth
Nebraska National buard.
The testimony of McArdle and
Harris is said to have involved inves
tigations of alleged arson cases.
A case of alleged blackmail is being
probed, so it became known Friday,
growing out of a damage suit brought
in district court by a stenographer
against her former employer, a well
known Omaha insurance man.
Elaborate precautions have been
taken by the present grand jury to
guard against possible "leaks.'' Great
secrecy characterizes each session of
the body and the bailiff guarding the
doors has orders to shoo away any
one and everyone who "hangs round"
without apparent cause.
Acting upon a request made by
Foreman Haverstick, Judge Sears is
sued a cautionary order in regard to
talking to the witnesses subpoenaed,

"Cupid" Stubbendorf, marriage li

Tw i women then entered the office
and asUd for aid, saying they would
be willing to accept employment. Mrs.
Uoane related the incident ot tne man
who was frightened at the prospect
of work. s
"What kind of work was it? asked
one of the women.
"Shoveling cinders out of a car,
replied Mrs. Doane.
''Say, you might think I am not in
earnest, but I would like to take that
job. I could shovel cinders from a
car, because 1 have hanciiea a snovei
before," answered the woman.
Mrs. Doane discouraged the idea,
explaining that she did not believe
that shoveling cinders from a car was
"Woman's work is anything that
she can do," rejoined the visitor.
"We are, however, doing all we can
to alleviate suffering and want and
this cold snap certainly has increased
our work," said Mrs. Doane.
$6,565 IS MISSING;
IS IT AROBBERY?
Loss to Brandeis Bank is Dis
covered When Cashier Pol
sey Returns from Lunch.
BOOKS BEING CHECKED UP
Sudden disaooearance of $6,565
from the Brandeis bank, situated at
the rear of the main store, has sup
plied police officials and detectives
with a mvsterv which grows deeper
the further it is investigated. Although
the loss of the money was discovered
Thursday at noon It was not reported
to police headquarters until five hours
later. Steve Maloney, chief ot detec
tives, tank ud the case it that time
and worked until 11 o'clock Thundav
night without result.
Edward J. Polsey, cashier of the
bank, discovered the loss when his
attention was called to a roll of bills
on the floor W his booth Thursday
noon. Polsey had just returned from
lunch and was greeted by Miss Anna
Murnhv. an employe of the bank, who
works in a booth next to that occu
pied by the cashier. As they talked,

picked it up to restore it to the cash
drawer and when he did so he dis
covered that the drawer had been
robbed. He immediately reported the
matter and the drawer was checked
up. Six thousand, rive hundred arfd
sixty-five dollars was missing.
On the theory that the bank had
been robbed while the cashier was at
lunch, detectives, when notified,
started an investigation of the ease.
They found, however, that the only
way the bank could have been
robbed was by means of the win
dow, which Polsey found partly open
when he returned. Detectives tried
to reach through the window to the
cash drawer, but were unable to do
so. This led to the belief that the
robbers used a small boy to boost
through the window and open the
drawer where the money was kept.
However, this is not considered likely,
in view of the fact that the bank ad
joins the lunch room in which scores
of persons take lunch at noon. De
tectives think it almost impossible
that such a bold robbery could be car
ried out under these conditions.
Officials saythe robbery of the bank
came just one day before it was to
have been checked by the auditors.
It was last checked January 12 and
the accounts were correct at that
time, it is said. Bank examiners were
at work in the bank today, it was as

Police Captain Dempsey was smok

tilted up on his desk as he peered out
at the desk officers, who were digest

Suddenly the captain stopped smok

made' a wry face as he stuck to his

that there was "nothing doing." A
