pened to bo unfortunately near tho Hotel
Motropole at the invitation of Jack Hose,

that Hose had never Importuned lilm r
tho others "to croak" tho gambler, but
had sought them out to convince them
of his innocence In "framing up" "Big
Jack" Xcllg, his chief.
Cross-examination failed to shake the.
witness. Ho gavo prompt and emphatic
answers; admitted calmly tnat ho hnd
served a Jail sentenco for carrying a gun
and had been a silent partner In an opium
den.
Harford Harshall, a lawyer, testified
that William Shapiro, driver of tho so

to tho Metropolo where the thrco took a
table in the dining room.
"Rosenthal got up and spoke to a mnn
named O'Day," continued tlio witness
"then ho came back and stayed three
quarters of an hour.. A man named
'Bom' Brown Joined us. Then we went
out to tho street to get some papers and
while I "was reading dh the curb I hcaid
a shot, looked up and saw a man with a
gun In vhls hand. Tho man's cap was
over his eyes, but I saw his long sharp
chin and straight nosv. Ho was about
5 feet 8 or 9 Inshcs and weighed about
1C0 or 170 pounds."
This description fitted that of the mys
terious stranger glvon by tho gunmen.
"Was cither of these four men tho
mnn you saw shooting of Herman Rosen
thal?" asked Mr. Wahlc. Indicating , tho
defendants.
"Nono of them wns," said tho witness.
John Relsler, who has been known'' In
the caso as "John, the Barber," testified
to seeing "Brldgie" Webber near the Ho

Whatever hopes tho Turks may have

Four Drowned in
Attempt to Shoot La
Grange Dam in Boats
PEORIA, III.. Nov, 15. Fifty men aro
today dragging the Illinois river below
tho' La Grungo dam, ninety miles south
of Peoria, searching for tho bodies of

companions, who aro thought to have
been drowned while trying to shoot the

dam. According to tho chief of police of
Beardstown, twelve miles from the dam,
Captain Henry Kerr, in charge of the

Kerr says ho saw the two empty launches
hanging on the breast of tho dam and
one figure was struggling In the water
end crying, "Help! Save us!" Before
Captain Kerr could summon assistance
tho man sank.
it Is thought that the four men at
tempted to shoot the dam together in the
two launches, which river men consider
an Impossibility in the present stage ot
water. There is but two feet ot water
over the dam. with a sheer drop of four
feet to the river below.

Chicago, which Is regarded as tho largest
hog market In tho world. During the
day, however, Chicago advanced to JS.03.
at which point both that city and. South
Omaha closed fdr tho day. This puts
South Omaha on a level with the greatest
market In tho world.
In this connection comparative figures
aro interesting, and to show whore other

appended:

By tho above it Is noted that 'Omaha

above that market In bulk prices, forcing
Chicago Into, second place,.
Further Indication of the Importance of
South Omaha as a market Is given frtHhe
figures showing that during tho year to

at the flvo big markets of tho country
Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Bt.
Joseph and South Omaha was 307,000.
South Omaha alone showed a net increase,
of 4i,000. This goes a long way toward
making South Omaha the first market In

to be generally conceded that the hog

It was doubtful it a recount of votes

of carrying tho case up to congress.
"Hut with the Wlilson sweep in tho

As to the ublllty to force a recount in

Unofficially, however, Register SSemau
