Drayman Is Exonerated
' John M. Looney, who was arrest

whisky on his express truck, was
acquitted yesterday by Judge Holmes
of the South Side police court. The
"whisky was confiscated."
Looney was charged with the
transportation of intoxicating liquor
and with illegal possession of it.
Since it was shown in court that he
was unaware of the contents of the
tart-eli marked "baking powder"
.which he was hauling, he was dis
charged and his truck returned to

for Fall Through Trap Door
Suit for $7,500 damages was filed in
district court Tuesday by Alfred Ber
ry against Abraham and Herman
. Marcus, who are accused of negli
gence which resulted in the perma
," nent injury of Berry.
Tt is alleged that in his capacity as
an employe of John Harte, contrac
tor, Berry went to Marcus' store at
Twelfth and Douglas to do some ce
ment work, and that in order to get
water for mixing the cement he had
passed over a trap door, which an
employe of the grocery carelessly left
open, causing him to fall downstairs.
- The fall resulted, according to the
complaint, in a serious shock to his
nervous system and in a permanent
injury to the third metacarpal of his
right hand and various other injuries
of a permanent nature.

ences and Observation
By HENRIETTA M. REES.
Miss Joy Higgins gave Omaha an
other reason to be proud of her last
evening by her lecture, "The Will to
Victory' which she presented at the
Boyd theater 1'ot the benefit of the
Shamrock Fund for Disabled Irish
Soldiers and Sailors, under the aus
pices of the countess of Kingston,
and the Omaha Woman's Press club.
Miss Higgins has long been known
as a clever writer and for her inter
est in the Audubon and various other
societies where she is a tireless work
er. Her subject was well chosen and
gave her an opportunity to review
briefly many of the interesting ex
periences which were hers during her
recent remarkable journey through
the United Kingdom and France with
the labor commission., and to mould
them together in expressing the very
spirit which made these experiences,
and in fact the journey itsel', possible.
Her language was at all times chosen
with exquisite care, and expressed
with pleasing cadence and telling ef
fect, and the tact and judgment which
won her popularity abroad were amply
Message to Labor.
Miss Higgins spoke briefly and to
the point about the message of Amer
ican labor to the allies, and called at
tention to the fact that in all these
countries the labor sentiment gen
erally is with the war. She spoke of
the peace agitators as little groups
of idealists who might well be a little
less intellectual and a litte more in
telligent. She pointed out the fact
that the workers in war industries are

"France would again build the homes
around the hearth."
The slogan everywhere seemed to
be, "I don't mind, it is winning the
war that counts," and this courage
in the face of heartbreaking calamities
had not only made all allies kin, but
lias made possible their achievements

Bulldogs Which it Friest

A report has been received from the
Pasteur institute at Chicago that the
two English bulldogs belonging to
G. A. Jackson, 2516 Templeton street,
were afflicted with rabies when they
bit Father Galvin, 2523 Tcmpieton
street, last Friday.
Father Galvin was returning trom
mass at the Holy Angel church
when he was attacked by the two
dogs. He was bit in several places.
The dogs were killed by police and
their heads sent to Chicago for
examination. Rev. Galvin was taken
to the St. Joseph hospital, where he
