I STRIKE HEARING
Witnesses Testify to Intimida
tion and Threats by Union
Teamsters During the
Hearing of the strike injunction
case was resumed before Judge Les
lie, sitting in equity court, Monday
morning. The state, represented by
Deputy Attorney General Munger and
Norn's Brown, introduced a number
of witnesses, including several non
union teamsters, who testified as to
alleged violence, intimidation and
threats on the par( of union men dur
ing the strike trouble last spring.
One teamster, Ed Keenan, told of
crowds of men unhitching his team
when he attempted to Urive out of a
coal yard. Most of the testimony was
of the same nature as that introduced
at the hearing before the state board
of mediation several months ago.
Deputy Attorney General Munger,
who, in the name of the state, asks
a permanent injunction against the
Business Men's - association and
Omaha unions, was frequently inter
rupted by labor lawyers objecting to
certain lines of cross examination.
F. A. Brogan and F. H. Gaines are
attorneys for the employers. A Ninde
nd W. D. Owens, counsel for the
International Bricklayers union, rep
x resent the labor faction.
At the present rate of taking tes
timony the strike hearing will last
at least three weeks more.

"Flivver King" at Last
Loses Boat to Thieves
Joe Sherry, "flivver king" of the
court house. has lost his 1917 "tin
Lizzie." Result much wailing and
smashing of teeth on the part of cor
pulent Joe. Sherry, a deputy in
. county 'court, has owned flivvers since
.ford hrst began turning them out.
Each year he bought a new model and
scoffed at the warning of friends that
some day he would have one stolen.
Joe always had his cars insured,
but he refused to buy locks for them
"Steal my flivver; haw-haw," laughed
Sherry. "I don't leave it standing
alone like some foolish people."
Anyway, Joe left his flivver outside
the court house Sunday night while
he went across the street to lay in a
supply: of ' stogies. When he came
out two minutes later it was gone,
KugerSays Love Powders
Are Being Sold in Omaha
Superintendent Kugel of the police
department brought before the city
council committee of the whole a
charge that clairvoyants operating
without licenses are selling "love
powders." Mr. Kugel believes further
regulation of 'dealers in futurities"
should be enacted.
The council permitted clairvoy
ants to operate without licenses upon
filing with city clerk certificates of
membership in "religious organiza
tions," the belief being that such
membership insured protection
against questionable methods.

BOY IS BITTEN BY
HORSE WITH RABIES
Son of J. 0. Hoffman of Butte
Will Be Taken to Chicago for
Pasteur Treatment; Cow
and Hogs Attacked.
Butte, Neb., Oct. 1. (Special Tele
gram!) A horse belonging to J. C
Hoffman of Butte developed a vio
lent case of rabies yesterday and bit
Mr. Hoffman's son, Marvin. The ani
mal also bit the cow and severa! hogs.
It was shut into a stall and held un
til this afternoon, when arrangements
were made for killing it. But just
before the execution was planned the
horse dropped dead.
The stall presented a badly wrecked
appearance. The animal had chewed
the partitions and walls, bumped his
head until everything was covered
with blood, tearing up a couple of
old mattresses and otherwise showing
all the symptoms o the dread dis
ease. The boy will be taken to Chicago
tomorrow and placed under the Pas
teur treatment. "The brain of the
horse will be sent away, to determine
just what was the mattei. Steps will
be taken at once to insure against any
further outbreak of the disease and in
all probability all dogs will be killed.
The source of the infection is not
known, but it is supposed that some
dog bit the horse.
