Says He Took Position Tem
porarily and Work Now
Well Under Way.
Robert W. DcVoe of Lincoln,
who was selected as chairman of the
State Republican committee last
summer, has tendered to Myron L.
Learned, vice chairman of the com
mittee, his resignation to take effect
In resigning as chairman, Mr. De
Voe said:
"I have tendered my resignation
as chairman of the Republican
State Central committee ' At the
time I accepted, on account of the
press of business, I stated publicly
that I would accept the position
temporarily. Not only has our busi
ness constantly increased from that
time, but we have recently taken on
, new work which will require my
absence from the state a consider
able portion of the time between
now and the fall election, which
makes my continuance as , chair
man of the committee impracticable.
"The preliminary work which the
committee had in mind at the time
of my election, and which I under
took, is sufficiently well under way
to warrant my withdrawal at this
time. In view of these facts, and
that the temporary nature of my
incumbency as chairman was and is
well understood by the committee
and the party leaders, I feel entirely
justified in tendering, my resignation.
"I propose to continue to serve
the interests of the party in such
capacities as our business will per-mit."

Alleging that the grading of
Dodge street is endangering the sta
bility of St. Mary Magdalene church.
Nineteenth and Dodge streets, the
church yesterday filed suit in district

ther. One Man Fined After Police
Roundup of Alleged Vagrants
John Medana, Mexican, 117 North
Eleventh street, was the only one
of 27 persons fined in Central po
lice court yesterday when they were
arraigned for vagrancy. Medana
was fined $50 and costs when he
failed to explain where he obtained
40 yards of silk goods found on him
when arrested by police in a raid
on his home.
Several of 'the prisoners assigned
the "flu" as their reason for not
working. Detectives found them
loitering about pool halls and cheap
lodging houses, they testified.

Like sweet breezes off clover
fields in full bloom will become the
air currents from South Omaha
packing plants, he declares, if he
succeeds in inducing packing house
owners to install certain devices,
whose exact nature he does not yet
venture to disclose.
When he has accomplished what
he has set out to do, the South Side
and other sections may no longer
seem like home to residents ac
customed to. long years of odorifer
ous inhalations, but the stranger
within the gates will appreciate the
improvement and marvel at the
miracle of a city without smells, he
Not only packing house odors will
be suppressed but the gases that
oft-times rise from sewer niaueholes
to assail the nostrils of the passer
by and take the joy out of a prome
nade of city streets are likewise
doomed to extinction it is claimed.
Not a lair that houses a noxious
smell, it is planned, will be left to
taint the sweet purity of the "Odor
less City."
Commissioner Towl expects to ac
complish this through methods of air
neutralization and purification given
high recommendation by a Chicago
expert whom he consulted when he
was appointed a member of a com
mittee to get relief for South Omaha
residents dissatisfied with stock
yard odors.
Just now, Commissioner Towl
says, he is negotiating with pack
ing house managers to' mure
unanimous consent for a trial .of the
idea. Details of the plan will be
revcale in due time, he says,
