HEARING IN HOSPITAL CASE
After a Two-Months' Roccss the Matter is
Again Taken Up.
INVESTIGATION BEFORE JUDGE CORNISH
InuntrlitK Into tlic ninnnnltloii of
Fund * Contributed by Union 1'n-
clllo KtniiloCN for the .Main
tenance of Their Sick.
After an adjournment of two months the
Investigation Into the management of the
' was resumed
Union Pacific's hospital department
sumed before Master-ln-Chancery Cornish
yesterday. General Manager Dickinson ,
General Superintendent Nichols and other
prominent Union Pacific officials were present.
Chief Surgeon Galbralth , who has been the
central figure In the Investigation , was not on
hand. At the opening of the case Attorney
Dolphin , who appears for F. E. Gllllland , the
complainant , stated that ho had no moro
testimony to offer In the hospital case ,
though later he should Introduce further
testimony In the wage schedule case.
General Solicitor Kelly for the Union Pa
cific opened the cute for tbo defendant by
submitting as evldcnco a copy of the rules
and regulations ot the hospital department ,
dated January 1 , 1892. Attorney Dolphin
objected to these as evidence , protesting that
they were not the rules that bad been In
force since thu rccelvcrshlo of the Union Pa
cific. The objection was overruled after a
brief controversy and the evidence was a.l-
mltted. The rules and regulations of the
medical department , dated January 1 , 1895 >
were also admitted , without objection.
C. V. Wright , chief clerk to Chief Surgeon
Galbratth , was called and testified that the
rules and regulations had been distributed
alont ; the Colorado lines. Ho knew , because -
cause ho was In the employ ot the depart
ment at Denver. On cross-examination ho
said that no' Inventory ot the medical de
partment had been made recently. Asked
If any phjslclan had been dismissed or had
resigned from the department's employ since
the present Investigation had begun , ho re
plied In the negative. This statement
brought on another dispute between the at
torney , Attorney Kelly asserting that the
evidence already taken showed that Dr.
Carpenter was not now In the employ of the
company , and nlpo the date he resigned. At
torney Dolphin said he wasn't aware of
METHOD OF DISTRIBUTION.
W. L. Park , superintendent of the Union
Pacific road between North Platte and
Cheyenne , testified that there had boon a
general distribution of the report of the
medical department made among- the men
employed on his division. There followed
a vigorous cross-examination of the witness.
Ho eald the reports had not been addressed
to the Individual employes because they
were constantly changing anil it was difficult
to keep track of them. The reports had
been bundled and sent to the various fore
men through the railway mall service for
distribution among the men under them.
Frank W. .Kills , assistant auditor of the
Union Pacific and auditor-elect of the Oregon
gen Short Line , was the last witness of the
morning session , and was on the stand
when the court adjourned for the noon hour.
His testimony was regarding the various
amounts of money In the hospital fund be
tween different periods from 18S2 to 1S97. He
Nhowed chat there had been a deficit In the
fund nt the close of nearly every year from
1887 to 1892. At the close of the year 1892
there was a surplus of $14,900.02 ; in 1893 , a
surplus of $22.100.20 ; In 1S94 , n surplus of
$44,301.95 ; in 1S95 , a surplus of $53,651.83 ; In
1890 , .a surplus of $61,211.84. The monthly
payments of the employes of the road to the
hospital fund had varied since February , .1882.
From then till 18SI the monthly assessment
was 50 cents. Later In 1884 it was reduced
to 40 cents. ' Then It was cut to 25 cents a
month , and remained 25' cents until Noyem-
ber , 1889. Since that tlmo It has always been
40 cents a month. The statement of the re
ceipts and expenses for the past year , 189G ,
was carefully examined. It showed a tmr-
plua or receipts over expenses for the year
On cross-examination , Mr. Hills stated
that ho thought that the surplus in the treas
ury of the. hospital fund was on deposit in
the United States National bank of this city.
In reply to a queftion as to whether It was
drawing any Interest , he deliberated for a
minute or two and then answered in th ?
affirmative. Asked alnce when the fund had
commenced to draw Interest , he answered
that ho could not state the exact date. Th-j
pay roll of the medical department for one
month , Seplember , 189C , showed an expense
nf $2,268.45. This , it was explained , covered
tha monthly salaries of thirty-eight physi
cians , In addition to the wages of office
clerks , messenger boys and laborers.
At the afternoon session of Judge Cor
nish's court further testimony regarding the
financial condition of the hospital fund was
heard fiom Ass'stant ' Auditor Frank W.
Hills' ' . General Solicitor Kelly announced that
he would have to postpone further testimony
In the case until lie could secure the atten
dance of President S , II. H. Clark and Chl ° f
Surgeon Galbralth , both of whom he de
sired to have testify concerning the manage
ment of the hospital fund.
The wage-schedule casa was then taken up
and had the attention of the court for the
remainder of the day. Assistant Superintend
ent H , R. Sutherland waa the principal wit
ness examined. Ho testified to the decrease
ot business along thu main line and Ne
braska branch lines In the latter part of
1893 , and during the years of 1894 and 1895.
Ho said that as the work had decreased the
train oervlco had been decreased , and con
sequently the telegraph service had become
lighter. He said that tli ro had been a
marked decrease In the train service during
1891 , but none during the other years.
Attorney Dolphin.entered a vogorous pro
test against this testimony , insisting that the
lack of business during tllse years had not
been questioned , but that the pctltlonoro did
dispute the right of the receivers to reduce
the wages of the men whllo compelling them
to work aa many hours as when their wages
had been higher. The objection was over
ruled. Mr. Sutherland continuing testified
to the lack of business at the stations of
Boon ? , Rogers , Duncan , Benton and Rock
well , and said that the telegraph Instruments
had been taken 'out from those stations , and
that the general train service had not been
Impaired thereby. After further testimony of
the defendant Intended to show that the
Union Pacific 'management was justified In
making the reductions It had during the
years 1893 , 1894 and 1895 the court adjourned
until this morning.

In a case appealed to the criminal court
from the police court Judge Baker made a
ruling yesterday which will cause a radi
cal change In the method ot keeping the
records of the police court.
The case at bar was ono In which Morltz
Meyer had been convicted by the police courl
of assault upon n small boy and sentences
to pay a fine of $25. The case was ap
pealed In the usual way , but when the mat
ter came up for hearing the other day
Meyer's attorney raised the point that the
transcript wa > faulty In that it did not show
that any judgment had been rendered lu
the lower court , this being the case refcrrei
to heretofore in which the transcript simply
showed that the defendant had been bouiu
over , but did not ahow that any Judgmenl
had been entered In the lower court. ' After
a legal skirmish the court allowed the cltj
prosecutor to amend the transcript to con
form to the records In the lower court. The
police court record was produced and it was
found that the police Judge had signed the
record in this particular case , but It wao
admitted by both sides that this signature
had not been attached at the time the judg
ment was entered and that it was not cus
tomary for the police judge to sign the
The attorney for Meyer made the claim
that the police Judge did not make the
record in any case , did not see the recorc
after It was made by the clerk of the police
court and did not know what the record con
tained. This fact was admitted by the
prceecutor to be true and Judge Baker fount
that there was nothing to warrant holding
Meyer for trial.
In making his ruling on this case Judge
Baker notified the city prosecutor that the
manner of keeping records In the police
court must be changed to conform to the
statutes or ho would dismiss all cases com
ing before him In such a condition.

will be sufficiently large and commodious to

had Just returned from. Burlington , la. , where
he hall been In conference with 1'resldcn
Perkins of the Burlington upon the Omaha
To a Bee reporter Mr. Holdrego said : "Wo
bcllovo that both the Ilock Island and the
Milwaukee railroads will rent depot faclll
ties In the Burlington's new depot. Wo
have thought eo for some time , but have
been delayed In obtaining a favorable
answer from them. The Illness of Prealden
Miller of tbo Milwaukee , who Is now li
California , Is the cause for this delay. Wo
have now decided to wait no longer for ro
piles fronv these railroads as to whcthe
they will or will not come Into the Burling
ton's depot at Tenth and Masou streets.
"At our conference jcstorday wo deter
mined to go right ahead and build a depo
largo enough for the Burlington , the Hod
Island and tha Milwaukee roads , believing
that the two latter roads will later agree ti
come In. Should they not do so. we shal
occupy the commodious structure ourselves

accommodation of the three roads nro now

will bo sent hero within a short time , prob

TAIiD OP THIi TURKISH OUTIIAOKS ,
Member * of All rail mill nil' * Family
Subjected to Torture.
M. Abrahamlan owns 160 acres of land
about seven miles northwest of Valentino In
thla state. Ho was In Omaha yester
day. Ho Is a native Armenian , but
has become a naturalized citizen of Ne
braska. . During the papt few years ho has
been unable to moro than make n living
on bla farm. Ho hns been unable to raise
the money necessary to bring his family to
America. The members of the family llvo
at Slvas , Asia Minor , and previous to the
Turkish outrages were considered welt off.
Some tlmo ago ho received tbo news that
all the property had been seized by the
Turks and destroyed. Ills oldest brother
had been hacked to pieces with axes be
cause he refused to deny Christ. Then his
lifeless body , bearing twenty-four rounds ,
was thrown ( it the feet of the horror-stricken
family , with the threat that unless the mem
bers were willing to forswear their faith'
they woull meet with n similar fate. Since
then every new story of raplno and murder
among the Christians of Armenia has car
ried with It the fear that the retraining
members of his family might bo among the
lost. Ho has tried In every way to raise
the money to send for them , but without
success. Yesterday ho came to Omaha
to try to make a. loan on his farm. He
tried half a dozen loan companies , but none
of them were willing to lend him the $225
that ho requires. Now ho Is trying to get
some sort of permanent employment In the
city at which he can obtain regular wages
and save enough for his purposo.v
Abrahamlnn speaks English fairly well
and has every appearance of .an honest and
hard-working man. He han some acquaint
ances In Omaha , who vouch for his good
character and for the truth of his story.
All ho asks Is a chance to work and eave
h's loved ones from the fate that hangs

The railroad service between the post and
Omaha la very Irregular. The mixed trains
running to and from the city cannot be de
pended upon. The most Important duty re
quired of a soldier is promptness , and should
ho take a trip to Omaha via railroad h'ls
day'a amusement is marred considerably by
the thought that ho Is liable not to get back
to the fort on time.

fiet Ilaelc nt Canon \VliHniar.xIi.
OMAHA , March 4. To the Editor of The
Bee : The point raised by Canon Whltmarsh
Is not a party question. The definition of a
Greek word is a question to bo settled by
referring to a good Greek dictionary. The
jest dictionary of New Testament Greek
( J. H. Thayer , 1887 , ) says : "Baptism Is an
Immersion In water performed &a a sign ot
the removal of sin. " The best commentary
on the New Testament ( H. A. W. Meyer )
says at Mark 7:4 : : "The word In classl :
Greek and In the New Testament every
where means Immersion. " Great scholars , al
most without exception , agrco with Thayer
and Meyer on this point.
As to the second point raised by Canon
Whltmarsh , to-wlt : That baptism "washes
away sins , " I would call attention to thu
aw of Interpretation , according1' to which
such an expression as that must bo ex
plained In the light of many other passages
which ascrlbo the "washing away of sins"
o the blood ot Christ. What "tho blood of
Christ" does actually baptism does figur
atively. I thank the editor for his courtesy.

Dollars were never so scarce never so hard to get
hold of never so valued by the holders of them as
they are at the present hour. Bigger values seems to
be a pressing need of the times. We recognize this
need. We have prepared for it. We have strained
many points to meet it and this season we will offer
the biggest clothing values America has ever known.
This would be mere foolish prattle if we coii'dn't ' back
it up , if we couldn't prove what we say. To show that
it is only the simple truth we ask you to look in our
corner window today , There you will see a selection
of suits for big and little boys at big and little prices ,
according to your purse , but whatever the prices thcs
values are the biggest The Nebraska has ever shown.
That's saying a good deal. We are selling children's
clothing this season ten to 20 per cent cheaper than
we could have sold it a year ago. Nobby little Reefer
and Knee Pants Suits as low as $1.25 fora good grade
Knee Pants Suits of Scotch tweeds and fancy cheviots
for $1.50 a suit. Boys' all wool Long Pants Suits as
low as two dollars , and so on through aline of wearable
goods that no one need be ashamed to buy , "
