US ARRESTED ON
Bootlegging Expedition Ends
v in federal Action for Con
spiracy Against Salvito
- Jimmie Ford, brother of the, form
"" tr manager of the notorious, Lake
side road house, and partner of Tom
Dennison and "Johnnie" Lynch in
the venture, was arrested Tuesday
on an indictment returned by the
federal grand jury at Lincoln, on
a warrant charging him with con-
airacy to violate the Reed amend
Martin J. Salvito, an alleged part
ner in the conspiracy, was arrested
on the same charge late Monday
It is alleged the indictment was
the result of revelations made by
Sam ' Finsod. an automobile . me
chanic, in the employ of the men and
who gave all the details because he
felt he had been double-crossed in
his end of the deal.
Starts on First Trip.
According to his story Finsod and
Ford met at the home of Salvito,
s 1710 Cass street, one Sunday last
June and there made arrangements
for the transportation of contra-
l)ind liquor into the state.
It is alleged they employed Fin
aod, who was to receive $100 for
each trip, to drive a powertui caou
lac roadster, bwned by Lynch, to
St. Joseph, Mo., and there load it
p with whisky ana Dnng u
cargo back to Omaha
.Salvito and Ford, it is said, gave
Finsod $480 with which .to buy the
Honor and he left for his destina
tion next day, with Salvito a pas
senger in the car. Ihey arrived at
the -Missouri town at 9 o'clock in
the morning and Salvito, bidding
Finsod eood-bye, went on to Kan
Whisky Hidden in Cellar.
H Finsod loaded the car with 375
quarts of whisky and all Went well
on the return trip until he came to
Plattsmouth. It was raining at the
time and the roads were slippery.
On the outskirts of the city the car
slipped and skidded, going off the
road. In trying to get the machine
fcack on the highway the gasoline
tank was punctured and the driver
V arranged with Ed Mason, owner of
a garage at f lattsmoutn, ana vj.
Newton, the latter's employe, to
keep him for a day or, two while
the ear was being repaired.
When the accident occurred some
iof the bottles of liquor were broken
and there was a strong ordor' eman
atin from the machine which at
traded the attention of Sheriff
; Quinton, who had heard of the ac
cident and had come to investigate.
BeforeMhe arrival of the .othcer,
however, finsod had arranged with
the flrarasre men to hide the whisky
contained in the unbroken bottles
in a cellar. They were later taken
. from there and concealed in a hay
I Car is Confiscated
Sheriff Quinton, with pieces of the
troken jflass and the strong odor of
whisky as evidence, confiscated tne
ear and orocured the arrest of Fin
sod, Mason and O. Newton, the
Finsod was tried fflr illegal pos
session, and Mason and Newton tor
the aidine and abetting of the crime,
and all three were found guilty and
were fined $100 and tosts apiece.
The car was confiscated, but be
fore it could be sold, the Jones
Kamoton ' Cadillac company of
" Omaha, put in a claim for the car
claiming it held a mortgage of
$2,300 on the machine. The court
held the mortgage was not a lien as
the car was subject to the state pro
hibitory law, and an appeal -was
takes to Nebraska supreme court,
where the case is still pending.
; Finsod Made Goat
la the meantime Finsod felt
aggrieved because he alleged Ford
ana Salvito had failed to come to
his relief and pay the fine and
costs incurred by his arrest and trial,
; and had also failed to compensate
him for the trip.
Finsod also has been named in
1 the same indictment.
William Tighe, a well known
character of Omaha, also is named
in the indictment as a co-conspirator
in the case, and a warrant also
was issued for his arrest.
Tighe got wind of the matter and,
when the officers went to arrest
him, they could not find him in his
. usual haunts.
. Heavy Run of Range Cattle;
Feeders in Good Demand
Owing to high prices, the run of
'range cattle to the Omaha market
has been the heaviest in years, but
in the opinion of the railroad freight
men, it is pretty well over for the
season. In the far west there is
still a considerable quantity of stuff
to come to market, but the best of
it has been shipped.
, 1 All through Nebraska and the
west, owing to seasonable rains the
range has been and still continues
in prime condition, affording au
abundance of feed.
At this time there are a large
number of feeders coining out of
the range country of Nebraska and
"Wyoming and going into the feed
!ots. The number, however, it is
not believed will be anything like
that of former years, owing to the
high price of corn.
; In former years southern Aeoras
ka has been the winter feeding
ground for thousands of steers, but
thia yr owing to the partial laii
nre of the corn crop south of the
Platte, the cattle are going into the
northern part' of the state, where
the crop was close to the humper

Free Shoe Fund
To Buy Shoes '
For Shoeless Children
The Bee' Free Shoe fund begins
with a flying start. Even the chil
dren want to help, that Omaha's lit
tle ones may be kept in school.
One check is accompanied by a note
"Little Jack says having cold feet
with snow on the ground is not any
fun. Can't we dig up just a little to
keep some little fellow'a feet warm?
So here is a small check."
With another contribution comes
the wish: "Hoping not one child
will be shoeless."
Money received in this fund will
be used to buy shoes and shoes
only, by a committee of school prin
cipals and teachers. Not a cent will
go toward administration to lessen
the amount given for the children
whose parents are unable to keep
their little feet dry shod.
Here are the first contributions:

In the current issue of the Na
tional Underwriter, an insurance
publication, printed at Chicago, is
an item to the effect that C. W.
Shaffer, vice president of the Lion
Bonding company, of Omaha, and
manager of the northwestern office
of the company, with headquarters
at Minneapolis, had resigned.
Mr. Shaffer, who was formerly
secretary of the company, and who
was promoted some time ago, with
a salary of $5,000 per year, is now in
the city. To a Bee reporter he
stated he was still vice president of
the company and manager of the
northwestern branch nd that he
had not resigned. He would give
no further information.

the company, in an interview to
day stated Mr. Shaffer was no

There seems to be a contention
between the two men, Shaffer in
sisting he is still an officer of the
company, and Luikhart insisting he
If Mr. Luikhart is right, the or
ganization once known as the
"Lion's Heads" and which has since
evoluted into a body known as the
"Lion's , Tails," has a new recruit.

At the tunc they took the com

Haubens was president of the com

The Witch was a Bird, but of a

had a long, sharp beak, a snaky neck

that of an Indian in his war head
