Tlio air of llio court room In Juilgo Hope-
roll's division wan considerably agitated
yesterday nfternoon by charges of Jury fix
ing In ( lie cano of Hanson against Cnllnlian ,
which was on trlnl. The case Is ono
brought to recover damages from tlio du
fondant for filling tlio plaintiff's legs full of
Mrdsliot an an Incentive to Induce lilin to
vnrato a pleco of land that was claimed by
both the plaintiff and defendant.
YeHterday afternoon the attention of the
court was called to the fact that there was
ii KlroiiK suspicion that all was not straight
In the conduct of tlio case. It was alleged
that ono of tlio Jurymen named Shutts had
been seen the evening before In close con
versation with the defendant In the action.
Immediately upon this being called to the
attention of the court the attorneys for
both the plaintiff and defendant agreed that
It would bo better that the present Jury bo
discharged from the consideration of the
rase In order that no taint of fraud might
attach to the verdict when It should Dually
bo rendered. To this the judge assented
mill n now jury will bo eninannelcd to try
the case.
In the meantime the Judge Is Investigating
the charge of corruption , but has not yet
iirrlveil at any conclusion as to the gtillt or
Jnnocenco of the accused Juryman. The In
vestigation will bo continued today , and It
Is expected that a conclusion will be arrived
at by noon. The Investlgatfon be con
ducted In private , and the first Intimation
that the public will have of the conclusion
arrived at by the Judge will bo the punish
ment of the Juror If the charges are made
good In his opinion ; they are not the
matter will bo dropped and nothing more
will bo heard of them. It Is not known Just
what the evidence so fur amounts to , but It
Is reported on good authority to bo very
conflicting , ono set of witnesses testifying
that the accused Juryman was seen to meet
the defendant In the action Wednesday
evening and that they went up stairs to
gether to rooms occupied by Callahan , while
on the other hand witnesses testify Just as
positively that the two were not , and could
not have been , together at the tlmo specl-
Number Tlirco Sciittereil All Through nil
UiiHiicremfiil Diiiuugn Suit.
It has been proved conclusively to the
mind of Ingro Madscn that the number
"three" Is her hoodoo and that no good can
como to her In the event that tills numeral
enters Into the consideration of any matters
vlth which she may have any connection.
On the third day of the third month ,
three years , ago , at 3 'o'clock In the after
noon , Ingro Madscn was a passenger on a
Sherman avenue 'car bound for the north end
of the line. At that time she was riding entrain
train No. 3 , composed of motor No. 3 antl
a coach bearing the same hoodoo nunlbcr.
As she proceeded on her way , three times
ulio told the conductor , who bore a badge
numbered "three , " that she wanted to stop
nt Seventeenth and Burt streets. Midway
of the block , before reaching her destination ,
ulie arose In her ccat and pulled the bell
cord thrco times , after which she went out
upon the platform and Jumped off the car
wlillo It was In motion , alighting three feet
south of the south sldo of the Intersection ,
when It was not expected that the train
would stop until It had reached the north
nldu of tlio .train. In getting off this train
Mrs. Madscn took thrco steps and then fell
to the pavement with force sulTlcIent to
break ono of her legs In three places , be
sides fracturing three of her ribs. Kor three
months she was confined to her bed , but on
the third day of the month during which
she got upon her feet , she consulted a law
yer who was 33 years old. Ho averred
that she had a cause of action and suit for
$12,200 was Instituted In the district court of
this county.
At the third term of the district court ,
preceding the ono now In session , the case
was called for trial In room No. 3 , where
for thrco days It was fought wit ! ) all of
the skill known to the legal profession.
After the facts had been submitted , the
Jury deliberated for thirty-three hours and
then returned a verdict , assessing $1,500 as
the amount of her damages.
The defendant , the Omaha Street Hallway
company , made its showing and cot anew
now trial , and at the third term of the
court , held during the year 1S93 , the case
was again called for trial In room No. II ,
where another three-day trial won held ,
resulting In the plaintiff securing a verdict
for $1,000 damages. During this trial Louis
Norberg , the bailiff , was charged with having
attempted to bribe thrco of the Jurors ,
nml upon conviction he was lined $100 and
sent to Jail , where ho remained for thrco
( lays , after which ho gave thrco mortgages
and raised the money to pay his fine.
Three days after the rendition of the
verdict , the defendant applied for u now
trial , alleging the tampering of the bailiff
with the Jury , and three days after that tlmo

The cnso of Aiinlo It. Klnkald against
Morris J. Jones and others has been called
lor trial In the court presided over by Judge
Koysor. In this action the plaintiff Bcelca
to recover the sum of $3,000 damages , alleg
ing that uho lias boon defrauded out ot that
hum of money. For n cause of action she
livers that during the summer of 18SS she
wus tlio owner of certain lands and lots In
the city of Omaha. In Juno of that year
him nllegeo that Mio wanted to trade her
property for n few city lots , Knowing that
hho was possessed of some real estate that
Imd n good mailed value , she called upon
the plaintiff and proposed to exchange her
possessions for sonio of the lots In Muyno's
addition. Jones wus willing to inuUo the
deal and having explicit confidence In his
integrity oho avers that she mu'do out a deed
of her property and left It In his keeping.
Kuvoral times Hho called for the deeds for
the property , which she claims that she waa
to have In exchange for her lots , but up to
this ilato she avers that It has bean hold
Iiack. Now she charges that hho Is tuuiblo
to get back her own property or that for
which eho was to trade.

tlered for tlio full amount of the claim.
JC5I , and an appeal has been taken to the
fiiprcino court , from whence It will go to

nml contracted to sell oatn to parties In Col
orado. After the contract was made the
defendant agreed to carry the oats to the
Colorado points for 30 cents par 100 pounds ,
but afterwards advanced the rate to 39 ccnU ,
claiming that the making of tha low rate
was a mistake and at the name tlmo was n
Violation ot the Interstate commerce law.

( lot Hundreds of Dollars.
Yesterday afternoon notcetlvcs Sav.igo and
rJompsoy arrested William F. Herman , James
1) . Howard and N. D. Colomnn on suspicion.
The prisoners are accused of being Impli
cated In a great big fraud perpetrated on
tlio charitably Inclined people of Omaha.
About two weeks ago four well dressed ,
genteel appearing men appeared | at the
Colonado hotel , Fifteenth and Jackson
streets , and Inscribed their names upon the
register. They applied for rooms and board
nnd without being asked , paid n week's
board In advance. To all appearances the
four formed a Jolly gang and had a great
deal of quiet fun among themselves nnd
made many friends among the regular guests
of the house.
When an Inquiry as to their business was
mode they always said that had been sent
west by the "Chronicle Hallway News asso
ciation" to write up the financial condition
of the western cities In order to give
would-bo bond purchasers an exact Idea of
the condition of each city now offering
bonds on the eastern market.
An a rule the quartet left the hotel to
gether In the morning after breakfast and
again after dinner. They were a Ilttlo late In
coving yesterday , and as u result fell into
the police net.
The game was this : On February 8 tlio
gang went to McCoy & Co's. Job printing
olllco and had 1,000 tickets printed for 11
grand charity ball , under the auspices ot
the Omaha and Council liluffs Hallway Em
ployes association , on March 7 at Washing
ton hall , the proceeds to go to the estab
lishment of a hospital-fund.
Each ticket was neatly stamped with a
seal of the alleged association and to all
appearances everything was as straight as a
In addition to the tickets the sharpers had
prepared a very neat subscription list. It
was typewritten on a printed letter head of
the Omaha and Council muffs Employes
association. At the top was printed the
following list of ofTlcers : W. F. Kent ,
president ; H. V. Evans , vice president ; N.
J. Harris , secretary ; J. C. Woodward ,
Delow this elaborate letter head was n
letter addressed to the public which said :
"Wo give our grand charity ball on the
evening of March 7 at Washington hall.
The purpose Is to raise funds for the estab
lishment ofn free hospital ward for rail
way men and their families who would
otherwise bo dependent on charity. " This
letter is signed by by N. J. Harris as sec
retary and approved by President AV. F.
Right here it may bo well to explain that
there is no such association in existence
and that the names are fictitious.
After getting their petitions , tickets and
seal In shape , the gang ballted forth nnd
"worked" the town.
Over ? 500 has been collected by these
swindlers , and but for a mlstako they
might have been selling tickets yet.
It was the custom of the men to pair off
and lay out n route , each pair to stay on its
own territory.
Wednesday they must have got a Ilttlo
mixed In their dotes , for two calls were made
at the Schlltz company's office. Manager
Marhover Is a pretty shrewd man himself/
and when he was offered tickets a second
tlmo he sized the sellers up and telephoned
the police. A couple of detectives
looked nt the tickets and called on the Jan
itor at Washington hall for Information.
Investigation showed that the hall had been
rented for the night In question , and as
everything appeared all right the case was
laid over for the tlmo being. Yesterday
morning Mr. Marhover saw Detectives Sav
age and Dempsey and told them his opinion
of the well dressed , oily tongued men and In
less than two hours the case had boon
brought to a head and three of the swindlers
wore In Jail.
Just after dinner yesterday and while the
four sharpers , Herman , Howard , Colcman
and Vooihees , were standing around the
hotel office smoking cigars the two detectives
entered from different doors and very quietly
asked Herman nnd Coleman to step to the
door. The arrests were made so quickly
and quietly that hardly any ono In the
crowded lobby knew anything about It. The
complaint the officers had was for two men
only , but Dempsey spotted Howard sliding
towaid the door and caught him before ho
got away. Yoorhees rnado a sliding skate
and disappeared out of the side door as soon
as ho saw his pals In the hands ot the de
tectives. Ho broke for the Tlver nnd has
not been seen since. The police have an
Idea , however , that they will catch him
before ho gets far away.
After the arrest of the trio they were
taken to tlio captain's olllco at police head
quarters and questioned. Each one claimed
to bo an employe of the Chronicle Railway
News , of Now York City and offered to show
up his credentials. When the onicers
asked for the papers each ono happened to
remember that the documents had been left
In his room.
Whllo this Ilttlo talk was going on Cap
tain Mostyn and an officer were busily en
gaged In searching the rooms In the Col.
onudo occupied by the prisoners. The
satchel of each man was brought down and
searched. About 200 unsold tickets were
found in one. In another was the seal and
In Colcman's grip was found the subscrlp.
tloti lists. A small set of tools and acids
for making and changing seals were found
In ono of the satchels , also a lot of printed
letter He.idB , showing that the same game
had been worked In other cities.
When searched by the 'Jailor Coleman
showed some memorandum books and BO
cents. Herman and Howard fared better
as far as cash was concerned , for their ag
gregate wallets stacked up about $300. As
tlio turnkey took the men below each pris
oner protested his Innocence , but their bluff
didn't last Ions
The police telephoned for several respons
ible parties to Identify the swindlers. Mot/
Bros , came up , the Paxton hotel pcoplo ,
Thomas Kllpatrlck , Mr. Marhover and a
representative of the Nebraska Clothing
company. The prisoners wore Identified be
yond n doubt and Herman finally gave In
and confessed that ho and his pals had been
solllnc the tickets
Every business house In Omaha was
swindled for from $2 to $20. All of the
banks gave $15 to the cause , and sonio of
the cashiers of tlicso Institutions supple
mented the olllclal gift-by a private dona
From the fact that $300 was found In the
possession of Herman and Howard It Is
likely that those- who bought tickets may
get a shuro of their money back , but it Is
thought that the total amount secured from
citizens must bo nearly $1,000.

11111 Goes to Unman City/or His Truant
llrlcln mid Her I.oK'r.
Yesterday morning A. II. Hill awoke to the
realization of the fact that .0 was a
widower , pro tem , If not one forever.
On January 2 of the present year , with anew
now sulMof clothes and a heart full of Joy ,
Mr. Hill led Ella Heed to the altar , presided
over by Rev. A. W. Clark of Rescue hall ,
whcro she promised to forsake all others and
cling to him , alone , In sickness and health.
The young man was as happy as any man
could bo under similar circumstances , and
at once ho went his way , fitting up a cage
for his bird. The honeymoon had hardly
passed when the young bride commenced to
pine for the company of others besides her
liusband. Mr. Hill was as innocent as a new
born babe and had all confidence In his
wife. He wanted her to have company and
a good time. Now , however , ho Is convinced
that he gave her too much rope and that If
he gets another wife , or If ho gets the old
ono back again , ho will draw the lines a
Ilttlo closer.
Hill and his wife had a mutual friend
whose name might have been Smith , but It
Is not , nor will It ever be. This mutual
friend had free access to the homo of the
Hills , and for this very reason Mr. Hill
yesterday was a very sad and mad man as
hoont speeding toward Kansas City , armed

During the early -Jays of the present week
Mrs. Hill Informed her husband that she was
going out to spend the night 4vltli ono of
her girl chums and that she would not re
turn until morning. The husband filed no
objections , but upon the coining of the morn
Hlla cama not. Then ho concluded that
there was a colored man In the family
wood pile , and an Investigation was Insti
tuted , which resulted In the shocking dis
covery that the bride of a month and the
mutual friend had taken passage for the
city of the Kaw , both going on the same
train and at the sanio time.
Wednesday night Mr. Hill wired the officers
at Kansas City to watch for the fleeting
couple , and this morning he was made happy
by the receipt of a telegram announcing tlio
fact that both man and woman had been ar
rested and wore In durance vile. Hurrying
to the ofllco of the county Judge , Mr. Hill
secured a copy of his murrlago llccnso and
then pulled out an the Ilrst train , declaring
that ho would make the xhattcror of his
home-Idol sweat blood before ho was through
with him.

The Citizens Campaign club was In full
motion last night and started off the spring
campaign with n rousing meeting at I'lvonka's
hall , which was attended by about flft >
Councilman Ilrucc , who Is chairman of the
club , was called away before the meeting
convened and Judge Hedges presided. Sec
retary Illco read the minutes of the Ilrst
miH'tlng nml tlio flnanco committee reported
that no progress had as yet boon made. It
was given further tlmo and the ball was
started rolling by a speech from Councilman
Wytnnn , who said tluit ho was heartily In
sympathy with the movement , the object be
ing , as ho understood It , to put men In ofllco
who wcro competent and who had clean
records. By the organization of the club
ward heelers would bo knocked out of n Job
and the low politician methods of the pant
would bo done away with.
The representative of the Second
ward then drifted Into a general
talk on the financial condition of the city.
Ho did not want the voters to bellevo every
thing they heard members of the Taxpayers
league say. Ho said that when the present
administration took hold of the city gov
ernment It found about $13,000 in old Judg
ments , which had been paid or partly paid
by this administration. The taxes wcro no
higher this year than last ; tlio levy was fi',4 '
mills less than It was last year ; valuations
were lower on residence and business prop
erty , and , taken all together , ho was willIng -
Ing to stand or fall on the record at the pres
ent administration. Ho considered that
economy had been used In all the dcpait-
mcnts and scoffed at the Idea nf cutting
down the departments , and , especially , doing
away with the tire chief. He said the packIng -
Ing house proprietors were pressing the
council for bolter fire facilities. A now en
gine was needed badly , but the city could
not afford It. The water pressure he admitted
was inadequate , but for the present there
there was no remedy.
W. B. Cheek , president of the school
board , dropped In just In tlmo to bc called
to the floor In behalf of the board , to re
fute charges made by the Taxpayers league.
In fact , all the proceedings seemed to bo
anti-Taxpayers league. Mr. Cheek said the
school board had been extravagant In ono
sense of tlio word and In another It had not.
The board had found It absolutely neCes&ary
to make more room for the children. All
the school houses , with the exception of the
two put tip this year , had been built with
revenue collected from the saloons. A small
levy should have been made years
ago , but It had not been and
nothing was left for the board to
do but make a levy. The receipts from all
sources In 1SD2 were $50,000. The new build
ings and furniture cost $25,000 , salaries
$25,000 , Janitors , fuel , etc. $9,000 more , mak
ing in round numbers a total of $59,000. Ho
considered the management of the school
affairs had been careful and economical.
The board was receiving fully as competent
Instructions by Its corps of teachers as
Omaha for 20 per cent lesa money. He
hoped that the newly elected members of
the board would be good business men.
Joe Anderson made some sarcastic remarks
about the "main spring" of the Taxpayers
league , bis solo ambition appearing to be to
roast Ed Johnson. Anderson said he had
Joined hands with the club In the liopo that
the preliminary work-of-the campaign would
be done In the club room and not In the
saloons. He roasted the saloon men , not as
Individuals , but said that political power
should bo taken away from them and the
caucusslng done In the club rooms and not
In the back room of a gin mill. Mr. Ander
son made It plain that ho was not In har
mony with the workings of the Taxpayers
league. Ho was In favor of the city council
meeting the Taxpayers league In a public
meeting and refute all the allegation ! ] that
have been made.
Judge Fowler was called out and spoke
briefly , giving It as his opinion that the
present administration had been properly
managed. He , at least , hud turned over alt
the cash that had fallen Into his colters.
Walter Slate was another man who wanted
the councllmen and members of the school
( board to meet the Taxpayers ; league In an
open meeting and refute the charges that
have been made. I" . A. Uarrelt thought the
Biuno way and made a motion to that effect.
Before the motion was put W. U. Cheek
suggested that It was a little early In the
campaign to get Into a squabble with the
league. Wiley Beckett declared that the
Citizens Campaign club had nothing to do
with the differences of the league and the
council and nskcd that the motion be with
drawn , which was finally done. Barrett de
nied that 1M Johnson had sent him to tlio
meeting to make the motion and after the
hat was passed for donations the meeting
