THE BEE: OMAHA, FRIDAY, MARCH 2, 1917, EXAMINES ALIENS FOR CITIZENSHIP 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! Show week. "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. , FATHER OF FIVE, HE WANTS TO DIE 0. P. Weldon Says He Would Be Worth More to Hie Family if .Dead. Building Boom is Here, ' . .

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 mit suicide. 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. Police Warned. 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.
