IS WOODMEN CIRCLE
FOR WOMEN ALONE?
Attorneys Say This is the Gist
of the Fight in Court
. Next Tuesday.
MAHONEY WAS IN CASE
The fight between Mrs. Emma B
Manchester, former supreme 'guard-
ian of the Woodmrn Circle, an aux-
iliary of the Woodmen of the World,
r.r.d the faction which is opposing her,
will come before the state supreme
court next Tuesday.
Attorneys representing the oppos
ing faction are F. H. Gaines, A. W.
Jefferis and J. A. C. Kennedy. T. J.
Mahoney, prominent Omaha attor
ney, who died suddenly at Washing
ton Thursday, was to have been one
of the leading lawyers in the fight
against Mrs. Manchester. A letter
to Mr. Gaines said that he was on
hs way to Omaha to prepare for the
hearing before the supreme court
Arthur Mullen, Halleck Rose and
John J. Sullivan are Mrs. Manches
The fight dates back a year ago,
when a controversy arose between
Mrs. Manchester, as supreme guard
' ian, and a faction that opposed her.
The executive committee of the order
contended that Mrs. Manchester was
, .-nisdirecting the activities of the field
workers. . .
Right to Control.
On December 19, 1916, the supreme
' court held that Mrs. Manchester had
the right to control the field work
until the meeting of the supreme for
est was held. x
The executive committee was en
joined on March 16 of this year from
proceeding with articles of impeach
ment against the supreme guardian.
On April 2 a special meeting of the
supreme frirest was held at Memphis,
. Tenn.,. in an attempt to settle the con
troversy. At this convention the body divided
into two factions, the opposing forces
to Mrs. Manchester contending that
' it wai but a reconvening pf the old
Want Men Discharged.
, The opposing faction declared that
the Woodmen Circle should be strict
ly a woman's organization and asked
that the field workers under her
men be discharged. She refused, ar
trclrs of impeachment were filed
against her and she was discharged.
No new supreme guardian was
tlected, Mrs. Mary E. LaRocca, vice
president, succeeding to the office.

est ia to be held at Atlanta, Ga., this
Mrs. Manchester alleges that the
body at Memphis did not constitute
majority and that ita action in dis
charging her was not legal. This is
the point now pending in supreme
According to Mr. " Gaines, chief
counsel for the opposing faction, the
real fight ia whether or not the Wood

Arrested as Spy
1 Suspects at Bridge
Hiking enthusiasts who wish to
, avoid detention as German spy sus
pects will avoid the Illinois Central
bridge and leave their cameras- at
home, if they take the advice of three
Omaha school ma'ams, who went a
a-hiking the other afternoon.
Miss Irma Gross, domestic science
instructor at Central High, who con
ducts the home economics' section of
The Bee; Miss Bertha Wiese, also of
the high school faculty, and Miss
Ruth Sheldon, Young Women's
Christian association gym instructor,
went on a hike to Mynster Springs,
north of Council Bluffs.
As they stood on the bluffs over
looking the river one of the number
spied the Illinois Central bridge.
"Let's hike back to Omaha- across
that bridge," suggested one of them,
i All fell in with the suggestion and
a hilt, across the bottom lands led
them, after barbed wire embarrass
ments, up to the bridge-, when
Two stalwart guardsmen confront
"What are you doing here?- What
pictures have you in that camera?
What are your names?" they asked.
"The last question bothered me
more than any, confessed one of the
three, "I never till that moment
realized how German the names of
two of us sounded."
"We'll have to ask the lieutenant
about this," said the guardsmen, after
their queries had been answered.
The lieutenant was sent for,
' "Whose the guilty party?" he asked
in a gruff voice.
Three school ma'ams, innocent of
anything worse than a desire to hike,
gazed meekly up at nun.
Further explanations followed
then the three teachers were escorted
across the bridge released from cus
tody. They had been paraded twice
across the bridge under arrest.

" Man Holds Up Saloon
A "dope fiend" bandit,, whose
hands trembled so that he was un
able to firmly hold the two guns
which he carried, held up Tony
Minardi of the - Mars'! and Scavip sa
loon, 563 South Eleventh street, and
two patrons last- night .
The bandit entered the saloon
shortly before closing time and or
dered a whisky to bolster up his
shattered nerves. He then walked
to the rear of the room took out
two revolvers which he carried in
his pockets and returned to the bar
where he ordered the proprietor and
two patrons to throw up their hands.
After backing the customers up
against the wall he told the proprietor
to open the register, from which he
took $25, the day's receipts.
- "Vou fellows haven't got any
money, have you?" he asked in a
faltering voice of the customers.
Upon receiving a negative reply,
he backed out of the saloon.
"I wasn't scared of being held up,
but I sure didn't like the way he
handled the guns," the proprietor
aaid. - "I thought every minutes that
he would lose control of himself and
fire, bis hands trembled so."'
Teamsters Say They Have

Omaha teamsters are not talking
strike, according to J. Gruhn, busi

feurs, Stablemen and Helpers' union,
with headquarters at 513 North Six
teenth street. He says that their mass
meeting called for Sunday is simply
an organization meeting, that they
have sent a memoranda to the busi
ness men stating their grievances, but,
that they have not talked strike at all.
Mr. Gruhn says that 20 per cent of
the drivers are now getting the union
scale and he thinks the business men
will grant their requests, which are
not very heavy.
