South Side Market Not to
I Handle Interstate Ship
ments of Sheep Un
Drastic rulings are being prepared
by the Nebraska Sanitary board fol
lowing a meeting held at the Live
Stock Exchange Friday, which will
revolutionize interstate traffic in
sheep and cattle between Iowa and
J. II. Bulla, president of the Ne
braska board, called the meeting fol
lowing a general demand by inter
state shippers. The two principal
problems taken up were sheep dip
ping and the holding of tubercular
cattle enroute between shipping
point and market.
The meeting lasted all day.
. . Nebraska shippers are warned
that the market will not handle
eheep that have not been dipped;
also that no cattle will be taken into
the local yards unless they pass a
critical inspection of sanitary of fi
lters. ; Similar action is being taken in
tother markets. Whether the rul
ings will affect other states than
Iowa and Nebraska is not known.
(Following the big foot and mouth
disease epidemic of three years ago,
Mie Nebraska sanitary board has
J itaken an active part in the regula
tion of stock tratfic between states
iof the Missouri Valley and particu
larly Iowa and Nebraska.
The rulings will be formally an
nounced this week.

Instructed to Enlist Men
For Service In Siberia
That National army men with the

Chief of Detectives John T.
Dunn's name has been slated with
three or four other police officers
for dismissal because of the disfavor
incurred with Commissioner Ringer
and Chief Eberstein as a result of
the testimony submitted in the Mrs.
Thomas Brown case.
Detective Paul Sutton already has
been selected and approved by Com
missioner Ringer, Chief J Eberstein
and Elmer Thomas to succeed
Dunn, it is said.
This statement was made yesterday
morning by a member ot the de
tective force, who is known to be
in the confidence of Mr. Ringer.
Chauffeur Edward Hegg already
has been, asked to resign. The re
quest for liis resignation is the re
suit, it is declared, of his refusal to
testify as Commissioner Ringer and
Chief Eberstein expected him to in
the Brown case.
Hegg declared on the witness
stand that Detective Armstrong was
drunk the night the flats were raid
ed at Twenty-first and Cass streets.
Chief Dunn is known to have in
curred the enmity of the head of the
department and Elmer Thomas be
cause he revealed too much on the
It was on the strength of Dunn's
testimony Mrs. Brown was dis
missed on the charge of maintaining
a disorderly house. It is believed
to have been Dunn's testimony more
than anything else that prompted
it," he said. "I feel that there is
the scathing rebuke administered by
Judge Holmes to the two police
officers responsible for the unlawful
Dunn in Disfavor.
Dunn's evidence did not accord
with the desperate efforts of Mayor
Smith and Commissioner Ringer to
whitewash Detectives Herdzina and
The most damaging feature of
Dunn's testimony was his declara
tion that he had not given the two
detectives authority to enter the
flats without warrants. The detec
tive chief asserted he instructed the
men simply to watch the house and
report to him what they saw. He
also declared the house at 2106 Cass
street had been watched by detec
tives six consecutive nights prior to
the raid. These officers, he said, re
ported that they had seen nothing
disorderly about the place.
When told of the report that had
come straight from Mr. Ringer's
office in the city hall Dunn declared
he had not heard anything about a
change being contemplated in the
head of the detective force.
Says He's Done Duty.
"This is the first I have heard of
some mistake about it. I have done
my duty as the head of the depart
ment, and feel that my work has
met with the approval of my su
periors. I do not care to make a
Hegg declared he would not re
sign in accordance with the demand
of Chief Eberstein. "They will have
to file a specific charge and show
why I should be dismissed," he declared.
As soon as Hegg left the witness
stand after asserting that Detec
tive Armstrong was drunk the night
of the raid, he declared he expected
to have trouble because of the na
ture of his testimony.
Just Told the Truth.
"At any rate," he said, "I have
told the truth. No job or induce
ment conld prompt me to tell a lie
under oath. I was asked the ques
tion and told what I saw and knew
to be a fact. Next time they want
false testimony from the witness
stand they will not call on me."
Asked yesterday if he colored his
story on the stand, Hegg declared
he told, the plain truth rather in the
fear that he would make his state
ment too strong. "The fact of the
matter is," he said, "Armstrong was
so drunk he could hardly walk from
the automobile to his front door.
He staggered all over the road and
sidewalk. I thought it would be
necessary for me to get out of the
car and carry him into the house.
Herdzina called to him to sober up
so he could remember his story at
the Brown hearing."
Appointed by Ringer.
Hegg was appointed on the po
lice force about 16 months ago by
Commissioner Ringer. He has nev
er been in any trouble before, and
until he testified in the Brown case
there was never a breath nf nni'-
Irirtn affiincf Vile MimA
Mayor Smith and Commissioner
Ringer had little to say, in regard
to Hegg's case.
"I think Eberstein will handle the
situation," was the mayor's com
mertt. He refused to say anything
about the significance of Hegg be
ing asked to resign a few days after
he testified in the Brown case.
"See the chief," was all that Com
missioner Ringer would say.
"Hegg was asked to resign for
the good of the service, declared
Chief Eberstein. "He is incompe
tent." Other officers whose testimony
did not suit Commissioner Ringer
at the Brown trial are lookincr for
the same kind of request.
Among those who will be asked
to resign, according to the informa
tion direct from the ritv hall arc
Detectives Vanotis and Potach.
Abandons Plan to Gill
Notables In His Trial
Jackson, Minn., June 28. After a
short session of court today the trial
of A. C. Townley, national pres
ident, and Joseph Gilbert, organizer,
of the Nonpartisan league, on
charges of conspiracy to teach dis
loyalty, was adjourned until Mon
day. Efforts of the state to extend the
scope of the testimony were checked
by the court yesterday, and the de
fense thereupon reconsidered its
announced intention likewise to call
as witnesses several persons of na
tional reputation, including Senator
W. E. Borah of Idaho.
Judge Dean overruled the at
tempt of the prosecution to intro
duce the speech of Senator Robert
M. LaFollette at St Paul which
was made the subject of an investi
gation in the senate.
