United States Naturalization
Examiner Ournett Is in City
to Probe Records. .
ALL. MUST BE QUALIFIED
. United States Naturalization Ex
aminer J. M. Gurnett, of. the bureau
uf naturalization of the federal gov
eminent. n the city conducting a
personal examination in the Federal
building of alt aliens whose applica
tions for citizenship (second papers)
in Douglas county, will mature for
hearing in the Douglas county dia-
trwt court on May . next, upwards
of 100 applicants will be examined
as to their fitness to become citizens
of the United States during the next
tew days. .'
- Since the breaking off of diplomatic
relations with Germany, there has
brvn i tremendous increase in appli
cations for citizenship throughout the
country, Mr. Gurnett states. Many ol
these aliens have the erroneous Im
pression that all they have to do to
become citizens is to go to the office
of the clerk of court, file their appli
cations, and become citizens without
taking further steps. Such is not the
case. The federal naturalization law
requires that all petitions for naturali
zation must be on file at least ninety
days before any court can exercise
the authority of hearing them. Fur
thermore, naturalization hearings in
court can be had only on certain days,
agreeable both to the government and
the court. s
Four Hearing Days.
There are four naturalization hear
ing days at Omaha each year, namely,
the first Monday of February, May,
August and November. As the ninety
days required by law to elapse be
tween the date of the filing of appli
cations in the clerk's office and their
hearing in court will not have passed
by May 7, next, all those who have
filed applications for their second
papers since the break with Germany
will not have a hearing on their appli
cations until the first Monday in Au
gust, next All those whose applica
tions were on file not later than Feb
ruary S, will get a hearing on May 7,
next, and will be made naturalized
citizens of the United States provided
they have been found, upon Investiga
tion by the government, to be quatt
fied in every way to become citizens.
Each Man Must Qaulify.
Before the hearing in court of ap
plications for citizenship, the field
force of the bureau of naturalizatiou
conducts an investigation into the
case of each applicant, Mr. Gurnett
states. In addition to having lived in
the United States for wore than' five
years continuously immediately pre
ceeding the application and to prov
ing by at least two American citizens
his good moral character and resi
dence for the time he has lived in the
United States, the applicant, must be
able to' speak the English ? language
and to show' that he is thoroughly
familiar with the principles of the
constitution of the Uiited States and
-hat he is attached to those principles
mil is willing to surrender, without
reservation, any foreign title or al
'cgiance he may possess. , .
Should an applicant fail to measure
jp to the strict standard the govern
ment maintains, he cannot ba legally
naturalized. An officer of the bureau
'if naturalization appears in court at
.naturalization hearings held before
the district judges, to look after the
interests of the government and to
object to the making of a citizen of
anv alien who has been found, upon
investigation, not to be fully qualified
to become an intelligent, moral,
American citizen. Applicants coming
from any country that may be en
gaged in war with the United States,
cannot be granted citizenship until
peaceful relations with his native land
have been re-established.v ,
Makes Daring Leap
. Just as Though It '
Was Regular Stunt
Hurtling along at fifty miles an
hour in a Maxwell car, R. Van Scoy
made a flying leap' from a platform
through the air and alighted top side
up on all four wheels, just as though
that were the most natural thing in
("the world to take leaps of forty-one
feet through the air in Maxwells.
Van Scoy ''s from the Maxwell fac
tory and made his exhibition leap at
the New York and Chicago auto
shows also. The exhibition took place
on Jackson street, near Seventeenth.
The police had the street roped off
for a distance of two blocks to keep
back the large crowd.
Truck Attachment Solves
Problems for Farmers
"The problem of economical haul
ing of heavy loads at a sufficient rate
of speed on the farm has been solved
by Smith Form-a-Truck," says A. S.
Johnston, sales manager of the Smith
Motor J. ruck corporation of Chicago.
"The Omaha exhibit has been
thronged with interested dealers and
prospective users during Automobile!
"Farmers have come to realize that
this attachment, which combines with
either Ford, Overland, Chevrolet,
JJonge Bros., Huick or Maxwell cars
to make a fully guaranteed one-ton
truck, will cover three times the area
covered by horses, hauling twice the
load in the same time and doing the
work at a much lower cost. Where
farmers have been accustomed to
spend several hours a di y on the road
between their iarms and points of de
livery they are now covering the
same distance and doing the same
work in about one-fourth the time,
and at greatly i :duced cost."
Inquest Into Fatality i
Absolves All from Blame
- No blame was attached and no one
was found negligent by the county
attorney's inquest held Thursday
morning as a result of the death of
William H. Clark, 936 South Forty
ninth street, cement finisher, killed
Tuesday afternoon when the roof of
the Sample-Hart Motor company,
Eighteenth and Burt streets, caved in.
The jury found that the falling of the
roof was entirely accidental. ,

Th Pneumonia Season.
The cold, damp weather of March
seems to be the most favorable for
the pneumonia germs. Now is the
time to be careful. Pneumonia often
results from a cold. The quicker
a cold is gotten rid . of the less the
danger. As soon as the first indica
tion of a cold appears take Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. As to the value
of this preparation, ask anyone who
has used it. Advertisement.
STOLE EMPLOYEE'S MONEY
Tired of battling against the high
cost of living on a small salary 0.
P. Weldon, 2508 North Thirty-third
street, father of five children, called
up his employer, W. J. Irvine, mana
ger of the Singer Sewing Machine
company, and, according to the po
lice, told him that he (Weldon) had
embezzled about $200 of the firm's
money and that he intended to com
The conversation was overheard by
a triend at bixteentn ana uoage
streets, who fearing that Weldon in
tended to carry out nis tnreat, noti
fied Detective Sutton. When Wel
don still insisted to carry out his
threat Detective button took him to
the central station and locked him up.
Detective Sutton says that Weldon
told him he was tired of trying to
support his wife and five children on
a small salary and that he had de
cided to end it all. He is reported
as telling the detective that he had
$7,000 insurance and that his family
would be better on without him.
Irvine, it is said, tried to dissuade
Weldon from carrying out his threat,
at least until he had time to talk
the matter over with him.
After being arrested Weldon is
said to have changed his mind about
committing suicide, but is still held to
see if he-really did embezzle some
of the firms money.
Weldon is a sewing machine sales
man and receives besides a small sal
ary a commission on what he sells.
He is said to have been working
for the firm for the last seven years.
Weldon is booked (or investigation
at the ponce station.
