COUGHLIN AND GEORGE CAPTURED
LAW TO SETTLE IT
upreme Court to Pass Upon the
Omaha Police Muddle.
THE CITY IS AGAIN PEACEEUL
Test of the Constitutionality of the New
Act W ill Be Made by Hue
Omaha, Aug. 5.—The answer of the A.
P. A. police commissioners to the peti
tion of the regular board of fire and po
lice commissioners was filed in the
district court today,
comes up in the morning and will be in
the nature of a test of the costltutlon
ality of the new law under which the A.
P. A. Is acting. The petition claims
that a premeditated plan was arranged
by certain individuals to render the
law void; also that the Injunction pro
cured by Mayor Bemis restraining the
city council from approving the defen
dants' bonds is unjust, and the petition
says it was procured with fraudulent
purpose and design.
The answ'er concludes: "If any dual
board of commissioners exists it will
be because of said plaintiffs, in viola
tion of the law and in puruance to a
long before preconceived plan and in
pursuance of an agreement to set aside
the law' and to violate the same, will
continue, through the police force as
aforesaid wrongfully organized, con
trolled and created to exercise the func
tions pertaining to said board.
The defendants maintain that the
plaintiffs can not try the constitution
ality of said law in these proceedings.
No excitement was noticed in the city
today as far as the police muddle is
A special to the Bee from Lincoln,
"Papers were filed with the clerk of
the supreme court today in relation to
Mayor Bemis, member of the old board
of fire and police commissioners,
plaintiff in proceedings In the nature
of a quo warranto to test the authority
under which the A. P. A. commission
assumes to have been appointed. This
will force a decision from the highest
tribunal of the state."

SOLD THE DRINKS ON THE SLY
Gotham saloons l>ld a Quiet Business
the Second Closed Sunday.
New York, Aug. 4 . —The reform po
lice administration enforced another
dry Sunday In New York today. Many
patrolmen are on duty In citizens'
clothes to watch saloons, and they had
the assistance of the members of the
city vigilance league, who are opposed
to violations. Chief Conlln said to
night that he had traveled about the
city considerably and felt gratified at
the success of his campaign. Although
the saloons were shut pretty tight It
was apparent to outsiders that many
of them were doing business In a quiet
way with their friends. Acting Chief
Conlln admitted that it Is an Impossi
bility to stop the sale of liquor In every
section of the town when It is possible
for a saloon keeper to supply the ten
ants In the building In which his place
"Where there is a demand," said the
acting chief, "there Is likely to be a
supply somewhere. It is a fact that
the proprietors of saloons who violated
the liquor law were more wary than
ever before and that they manifested
a wholesome dread of citizen spies and
they would take no chances knowingly,
and were too smart to admit strangers
to their saloons, no matter how Inno
cent the would-be customer appeared.
The unique organization known as the
Olrder club and fathered by Oliver
Sumner Teal, was opened for the first
time and many paid annual dues for
membership and partook of liquor re
freshments there. Although the police
had not attempted to Interfere with
the Institution there seemed to be a
feeling of uneasiness over a rumor that
there was a possibility that Cpataln
Pickett would make a visit. Both Mr.
Teal and his lawyer were emphatic In
saying that It was not In the province
of the police to close them."

spattered from one room to another.
Science aided Detectives Fitzpatrick
and Norton where other agents had
failed and uncovered more startling
idence against H. H. Holmes and Pat
Quinlan than has been found in the
"castle." There was found in the "cas

doorway of the dining room of Mrs.
Julia L. Conner to a sink in the same
where she and Pearl formerly slept and
from there to the inside of the door
opening into the bath room, where the
secret trapdoor was, on the baseboard
of that room above the trapdoor, and
down onto the secret staircase which
led to the false elevator shaft and
thence into the basement.
In Pat Quinlan's private living rooms
were found two trunks of a theatrical
type. On both trunks were the initials
"M. R. W." The initials had been paint
ed over. The initials are those of Minnie
R. Williams. Pat Quinlan stated after
his being taken into custody that both
of the trunks belonged to him. Detect
ives Norton and Fitzpatrick have now
the truth that both the trunks belonged
to Minnie Williams,
drawn by the officers from the trail of
blood w'hlch was discovered was that
the blood, being human, came from
some person who was killed in the dark
chamber, dragged from there to the
trapdoor, thence to the basement be

blood will Immediately follow.

THE CAPITALISTS BECOME ALARMED
A Recent Decision of Judge Moss May
Invalidate Other ilonds.
San Francisco, Aug. 6.—Holders of
aliforniu bonds of all classes are
larmed at the recent decision of Judge
Ross of Los Angeles, declaring the
Wright irrigation law unconstitutional.
Bankers believe that the decision, if it
stands, will not only invalidate out
standing irrigation bonds, but that it
will have the like disastrous effect up
on all sorts of securities of the same
character. The most serious phase of
the case is that it may nullify the mil
lion of dollars' worth of municipal
bonds which have been issued by the
various cities of the state to cover the
cost of municipal improvements. The
capitalists of this city will probably
combine to appeal from Judge Ross'

CAPTURE OF SYMES
j Murdôrer of Constable Com66 in
J a j| Missoula,
WAS WORKING ON A RANCH
I mploycr Stun mon cd
Was Compelled to Hit llti
Helena, Aug. 4.—This afternoon about
4:30 o'clock Sheriff McLaughlin and
Deputies Curran, Corbett and Pickette
came into Missoula rrom Lo Lo bring
ing with them A. J. Symes, who is
wanted in Adams county, Wash., for
the murder of Lew Conlee, a constable,
June 24, of this year, and for whose ar
rest large rewards have been offered.
Symes has for the past three weeks
been working on the ranch of Dave Me
Clay, about 14 miles from Missoula,
and for the past week has been herding
sheep for Mr. McClay on Harvey creek,
about two and a half miles from the
ranch, across the Bitter Root river.
While coming to Missoula yesterday
Mr. McClay saw at Lo Lo the notices
of reward for the arrest of Symes, to
which was attached his photograph,
and immediately recognized it as his
shepherd, who had given his name
Frank Davis. The officers at Missoula
were at once notilled, and Mr. McClay
was appointed as a deputy sheriff.
When the sheriff reached Mr. McClay's
ranch this morning Symes had brought
the sheep down to the river to water,
but was in rather thick timber and it
was decided unwise to attempt to make
the arrest, so Mr. McClay went across
the river where Symes was and tried
tc induce him to go to the house and
get a team to do some hauling, but
Symes was suspicious and refused to
go, and as he was armed to the teeth
Mr. McClay did not try to enforce
obedience, but picked up a piece of
scantling that was lying near at hand
and sitting down began to whittle upon
