Tells Exactly Opposite Story
from the One He Told to
the Federal Grand
Twice on Tuesday morning the fed.
eral court machinery was started to
grind out justice to offenders against
the criminal laws. And twice the
machinery was clogged.
The case of the United States
against Charles Beacon, charged with
selling liquor to Indians, was first.
George Phillips, an Indian, was the
government's pricipal witness. II
had made affidavit and had testified
before the grand jury that Beacon

him on the witness stand and started

"No," said the witness.
He stuck to this testimony, a I
though it is in direct contradiction of
what he testified before the grand
jury. He may have to answer
charge of perjury later.
To Jail for Contempt.
The jury was dismissed and an
other jury was impaneled to try the
case ot the United states against YVil
liam Snow, an Indian. William wai
charged with "introducing liquor on
the Indian reservation."
But, alas I William had introduced
liquor into himself' very recently. No
evidence of that was needed. It was
too apparent. William was in no
condition to be in the1 aunust tribuna
of the federal court.
Judge Woodrough sentenced him
torthwitn to thirty days in the Doug

on with criminal cases. '

criminal cases in the local court.

Golfers Here Znjoy Pastime
Over Some of the finest
Courses in United
By A. R. CROH.
A golf foursome, arriving at number
6 green one day, observed a farmer
looking over the club grounds fence.
One of the four conceived the pleas
ant idea of letting the unsophiiticated
country man take i drive. The u. c.,
being invited, accepted. "1 don't
cal'c'late I'm much good at it, though,1
he apologized. He was shown the
flag, 250 yards away on the next
green, tie looked at it, swung once
or twice, and then let drive. The ball
soared through the air, landed and
bounced onto the green, where it
rolled to within three inches of the
hole, an astounding drive where par
was 6. the tour gazed at the farmer
in amazement. But he only looked
"Missed it. hv gum." he said.
With that oft our mind we will pro
ceed to divulge some information
about golf tn and around Omaha.
Six Courses Here,
There are four eighteen-hole
and two nine-hole courses in Omaha.
The former are the Country club,
Happy Hollow club, Field club and
tumwood park courses, tne latter is
The nine-hole courses are at Miller
park, (municipal) and at Seymour
Lake Country club. Plans are under
way to make the latter an eighteen
hole course. It will have a total
length of 6,700 yards and will be the
longest golf course west of Chicago,
as well as the "sportiest."
A golf course is "sporty" when there
are plenty of hazards like long grass,
water, bunkers, trees and sand traps
to contend with. The Field Club
course is considered the "sportiest"
around Omaha now. It is 6,312 yards
oni. with a par of 74. I he Country
club course is 6,142 yards long and its
par is 72.
tne n.imwood oou ciur, Miner
Park Golf club, Prettiest Mile Golf
club and Women's Prettiest Mile Golf
club sre some of the clubs outside the
regular country club organizations.
Women are verv actively in the
game and the Omaha Women's Golf
association play tournaments every
year and holds competitions monthly.
Golfers Grow in Number.
TShere are about 7.000 golfing fans
in Omaha, and it is said that 5,000
of these have taken up the game and
learned the language ot tees and
greens and brassies and drivers and
inidirons and mashies and putters and
cleeks and niblicks and midmashies
and approaching cleeks and spoons
and spoon brassies in the last four
t here are anout lorty goit chips in
Nebraska. Lincoln has the only
eighteen-hole course in the state out
side of Omaha, i-ike tne umana
courses, this has also a "nineteenth"
hole." . .
Some golfers are great story tell
ers. One ot the species met a man
at his club and started telling of his
"I made eighty-three today, some
thing I never hod to do," he said.
"Good," said the other. "You know
ti.liA 1 am tlnn. vntl T'm th. T).1V
member of the handicap committee."
The man with the wonderful score
was nonplussed; also taken aback.
But he had presence of mind.
"Well, you know who I am, don't
you?" he replied. "Why, I'm the
biggest liar in this club.
