Brady Makes Mistake
Approaching Block Watchman PHgrlm
at Fourteenth and Farnam streets about
2 o'clock Friday morning Jnck Brady, a
well known polico character, told tho
officer In a hoarse whisper that ho know
wnere both could mako a "killing" by
breaking into a 'Jewelry store.
He said they could break In a rear win
doxy, obtain about JoO.OOO worth of dia
monds, and If they had time after they
had picked out, the best stones they could
bloW the safe and get equally as 'much
In money. ,
"And the best part of It Is tho block
watchman will never be able to detect
us," continued Brady,
Scores of Omaha business men ate be
ginning to bellevo that they have been
swindled out of $5,000 or more by a clover
gang of men who worked here for about
two months last spring. Tho extent of
the operations will never be known, bo
cause many of tho men who gave up
money to Mie gang urn reluctant to admit
that they have been token In.
-Of course It still remains to be, seen
whether or not tho operations amounted
toT a -swindle, yet practically all of the
men- who guvp tip checks ranging In
vuluc from SU.CO to .V feel certain tnat
they will never huvo value returned.

Tho gaiue, If It were such, was worked
In the' mime of cartoonists employed on
tie 'Omaha dally papers. Tho men came
here In March of this year and fitted up
offices, at 415 McCagUo building. They
tlun went to the cartoonists and unfolded
a plan to' get out n book to bo known as
Omaha In Caricature." They offered
tho artists $3, 3 and M0 apiece to draw
tho.cnrlcatures, payment to bo made ao- I
cording to- tho value of the subject.
With this preliminary matter out of
the way they went forth and told of their
plan to get out "Omaha In Caricature,"
representing that it was to be published
by the "Omaha Cartoonists' Club," which
does not exist. In this manner they used
the names of the local artists, leading tho
business men to bellevo that they Wore
doing something for a home Institution.
The fnct Is that they used tho names of
tho local artists unauthorized.
Kach -of the business mon who took
space m.tho.book was told that It would
ue puousnea within ninety days, but
eight months have elapsed nnd still noth-
lug 1ms been heard of "Omaha tn Curl-
cature.." It may be published yet, but
no one seems willing to bellevo It.
lthlu'the last few weeks Don no Pow
ell of The Beo has received n nrnrn nf
letters from anxious patrons of tho
"Omaha In Caricature" nsklfag for In-
forlnntlon. Indicating that his nnme was
used freely In' the game. Mr. Powell
ras emphatic In saying that although ho
thought th'e scheme was legitimate at
first, .-after findlm: oilt thnt mi.r.n.
