o .THE ( XMAIIA DAlT/r rjJ-fiB : TUESBAT , PElKFAT7Ar 2 , 1897.
WAR removed July 3 , 1895 , but ho was the
first omcer to bo reinstated by the new
A REFORM CAPTAIN.
The record of H. P. Hnzo , who vraa ap
pointed to the position second In Importance
In the department , Is oven more notorious
than that of his chief. Ho was appointed
n patrolman about tha paine tlmo a * Slgwart ,
and two years later lied become chief of
detectives. From that Mme until ho was
dismissed from the force- there was scarcely
a month that did not Iravo some marks of
official Irregularity or Incompetence to stand
ngalnst Haze's name.
Haze was assigned to the duty of stop
ping the gambling that was going on In
the city , but somehow the gamblers always
had a tip when Hnzo was about to raid
their resorts. Complaints wcro filed thai he
had forced an entrance to rooms under pre
tense of having a search warrant and had
assaulted women. That ho had Interfered
with the operation of the law with regard
to women who wished to reform Is a matter
of record. Ono of thes < ! cases was that of
a young girl arrested In a house of prosti
tution In February , l&M , She was Induced
to consent to go to the Mil ford homo , and
her transportation was secured for her. Hut
that night Haze had an Interview with the
girl and persuaded her to go homo with
him , She went , stayed a week , and a day
or two later was again arrested 'In a don In
the burnt district.
Haze ssomod to have a penchant for keep
ing girls of this character from being taken
to the homo. In Uio case of Laura Day his
Interference was followed by the murder of
the girl , who wo * soon after shot and killed
by her lover In a room In the Anderson
block. As chief of detectives his Incapacity
was notorious among those who were fa-
mdllar with the worklnra of the force. Ho
was also noted as a disorganizes and was
ono of the men who were removed for cause
In July , ISiB.
A. A. Dobout , who was selected by the
"reform" board for the Important position of
sergeant , wont on the police force In 18SS ,
and finally became one of the Jailers at the
central station.Ills services went without
complaint until ho began to give so much at
tention to breeding dissension In the force
that ho failed to look after the duties of
his position. It was his duty to retain the
effects of prisoners and return thorn when
they were discharged. But It came that onu
prisoner was frequently given what belonged
to some other prisoner , sometimes cius-
Ing serious loss. In ono case a gold watch
C'lsnppeared lu this way and was never ac
counted for. A sample of the manner In
which Bobout attended to his duties oc-
'curred when a horse , as reported stolen
from WlrO's Music hall. An ofilcer found
the horse and placed It In a stable , at the
same tlmo notifying Bebout. Bebout failed
to record the report , and the horse remained
In the barn for several days , while officers
wore searching all over the county for It.
As a result ho was removed for cans ? , and
owed his reinstatement and promotion to the
A nEFOUM CHinF DETECTIVE.
One of the most surprising selections of
the "reform" board was that of W. W. Cox
for the responsible position of chief of de
tectives. The records of the board show
abundant evidence of his Incompetency , aside
from the more serious charges that have
been made against him at various times.
The records show that Cox was on the carpet
for assault before ho had been on the force
a year. Subsequently he was charged at
various times with sleeping on duty , going
Into saloons while on duty , sitting down and
reading while on duty , and various other
violations of police regulations.
It was on a charge of frequenting saloons
on duty that ho was dismissed from the
service In 1S93. At that time he throw hU
star on the table at which the board was
seated and Invited the commissioners to seek
a warmer climate. Eighteen months after
ward ho was allowed to apologize and resign
In order to straighten his record , and when
the "reform" board came In he was appointed
to his present position. Since then his In
competency has been notorious , and It Is well
known that Instead of directing the detective
work of the department ho Is a mere figure
head. The Instance In which Cox chased
out the whole force to hunt down some bold
burglars who had "taken the elevator" at
the Boston store Is a fair sample of the
sagacity of this gallant ofllccr.
Sim D. Corey , another sergeant of "reform"
selection , had also bqon previously dismissed
from the force for cause. He was made a
sergeant by the new board , but ho displayed
BO little Interest In his work and was charged
with so many Irregularities tliht they wore
compelled to remove him after five months'
service. After his dismissal Corey claimed
that ho had been discharged because ho had
been accusedof log rolling with the city
council In regard to the levy for the police
department. Ho admitted this , but showed
his authority In written Instructions from
Captain Haze ,
Daniel W. Iler and Frank D. Mitchell were
also made sergeants by the new board In
aplto of the fact that they had previously
been removed from the department. Iler and
Mitchell were discharged for Insubordination
and forj spreading mutinous sentiments
among the other members of the force.
REFORM IN THE RANKS.
Nearly all of the men who were reinstated
as patrolmen had been dismissed for serious
causes. Several wore notoriously lazy , and
others were drunkards. Several of them had
been charged with blackmailing women who
lived outside of lh& burnt district , exacting
a specified sum per month for Immunity
from'pollco interference. A few examples
will suffice. omcer Louis Qodola had been
found on his beat sqvcral times In an In
toxicated condition , and on various occa
sions had wantonly assaulted prisoners whom
ho was placing under arrest. Ho was several -
oral times on the carpet for intoxication ,
false arrests and sleeping on duty , for which
ho was finally discharged. Hut ho was good
enough for the "reform" board , and la now
wearing n uniform.
William II. Shoup Is another shining light
In tlio galaxy of efficient officers that tlio
now board has foisted en the force. Shoup
has bosn several times charged with dlso-
bedlonco of orders , and was also on the
carpet for an assault on his superior officer.
Ho was 'In command of the squad that as
sisted In the midnight orglo at the Coliseum
a couple of years ago , and for these and
other Items of misconduct ho was discharged '
from the department Juno 13 , 1895. Ho was ,
at once reinstated when the "reform" board
came Into power , and is still on the pay
A. II. Burr was on the police force as n
patrolman from January , 1880 , until ho was
removed for cause , July 3 , 1S33 , During that
tlmo ho was on the carpet on various
charges at frequent Intervals , and was .sev
eral times fined , suspended or reprimanded.
Leaving beat , Ill-treating prisoner , disobey
ing orders , sluing down while on duty
and rldlns on street cars while on duty are
among the charges that appear opposite his
name on the records of the board. But ho
was Immediately assigned to duty by the
UBFOIIM AND MORE REFORM.
"Using abuslvo language , " "le.ivlng
beat , " "Intoxication" ani "absault and bat-
tery" are fiomo of the charges for which
Patrolman Nicholas V. Halter was on the
carpet during his four years' service on
the force. At the end of this tlmo ho was
dismissed , tout his inamo now' appears on the
Samuel 0 , Hoff Is another of the patrolmen
whosd unsavory records have been their chief
recommendation to the new board , Hoff was
appointed In April , 1892 , and was removed for
cause Juno 13 , 1S95 , Ho was subsequently
made ono of the appointees of the "reform"
board , and It was only a short time before
ho was suspended for thirty days for abusing
a prisoner and using profane language , A
couple of months after he was charged with
an assault , but the case was never tried by
the board. Two weeks after the assault char/re /
ho was found enjoying the performance In
a tough music hall when he should Imvo been

days. Dut thl * Is apparently satisfactory to
the bonrJ , for ho U still drawing his salary.
noaus CIVIL SEIIVICB TBST.
To offset the effect ot Its action In thoao
and similar cases the board has Innuguratd
a travesty on civil service In order to give
some color to Its reform pretensions. Ono of
the alleged "civil service" examinations was
held for the police department , and a list
ot thirty-three men was recommended for
service. Of these eight have been appointed
as patrolmen and are still on the force. For
Just one day the pretense of exact civil
service was krpt up.V. . T. Devcrceso wns
appointed patrolmen November IS 1S05 , l > p-
caucc Mi average was the highest on the
llet. Dut the next hl hi-st nun are ntlll
waiting for their turn , William H. McOralli
and Noah Thomas were appointed n week
later , and eleven men remained on the waitIng -
Ing list whoso average had been higher thai :
that of the men who were selected. Guorso
A. Sargent , A.nton Inda nnd 1'cter Madsen
were appointed during the followlns April
and with no regard to their standing at
"Prof , " Allen's examination. The case of
Inda was especially noticeable. Inda's average -
ago at the examination was 77 per cent , helm ;
one of the lowest on the list. A dozen men
who ranked way nbove him have never been
asked to wear a dtar , Hut the play to reform
galleries la supposed to have had Its effect
on certain classes.
With such examples set before them by
the members of the police board , lu It any
wonder that the rank and file ot the pollto
department have lost all respect for their
superior ofilcers ? Is It any wonder that ( lib
force Is demoralized nnd discipline an ab
sent quantity ? Is It any wonder that pollca
offlcirn follow the lead of their superiors
and look for promotion not for merit , but
through political pull ? Is It any wcsider
that policemen violate nnllco rule. ? , relying
on outside Influence to gat them off with a
nominal penalty ? The " -ondor Is only that
any ont > could bo Imposed on to testify to
tha discipline and efficiency of a police de
partment so mndo up.

Yesterday's account of the prize fight
which occurred In a thickly Inhabited and
well patrolled portion of the city last Satur
day .night . without the knowledge of the
police was received ns a tip by tli2 police offi
cials. Chief ot Police Slgwart said that ho
Intended to have warrants Issued for the ar
rest of the principals , the officials nnd as
many of the spectators as nre known. All
the poMons whosa name appear In the ac
count of the mill as printed In The Dee will
bo arrostod. Chief Slswart said that ho
knew that the fight was to occur , but did
not know ot the location. He had believed
that it was to take plac.a outside the city
limits and therefore little attempt was made
to stop It.
"I was given to understand that the fight
would bo pulled off near IJellcvuo , " ? ald the
chief. "On Saturday niijht we learned that
several hncks left the city for the scene of
the fight. They went south , and wo sup
posed that they were going to Bellevue or
that vicinity. Therefore the South Omaha
authorities worcr notified of the matter. "
All persons engaging In or being concernsd
In or attending a prize fight are violating the
statutes ot the stato. The principals , If
convicted ot engaging In a fight , are guilty
ot a felony , which Is punishable by a sen
tence of not less than one nor more than
ten years In the penitentiary. The specta
tors nnd officials , If convicted , are to be
punished by a fine ot not less than $5 .nor
moro than $100 and by imprisonment In the
county J.ill for not morn than three months
nor less than ten days.
Aaron Sherroy , one ot the men who engaged -
gaged In the fight , was arrested by the
r-oltce last evening. Sherroy wss taken Into
custody with considerable difficulty by a
couple of detectives near the corner ot
Twelfth nnd Dodge streets. Ho refused to
glvo the police any Information In connec
tion with the mill , and was boolccd on a
charge of disturbing the peace by prlzs

LINCOLNfob. . 1. ( Special. ) The senate
met this afternoon and promptly wound Itself
up In a prolonged discussion over Hansom's
bill to reduce the number of county comuls-
tloiicrs In Djtiglas county from five to three.
Thcro was no objection to the main feature
cf the bill. The only controversy was over
the amendment making an exception In the
case of Lancaster county. Senator Ueal
called up the measure and moved that the
amendment favoring Lancaster county be
stricken from the bill. Senator Talbot made
a strenuous effort to prevent action , but he
was In the minority , and Senator Hcal's mo
tion was agreed to. Then the senate pro
ceeded to tangle several skeins of parlia
mentary law over a half dozen motions and
amendments , and nn equal number of pulnU
of order. Finally , after the president of the
senate had himself become mystified over thu
puzzle , Senator Hansom moved as an amend
ment to everything Hut had been done , that
the bill be ordered engrossed for a third
reading just as It came from the standing
committee. This was agiccd to. The bill
na It now stands provides that In all coun
ties In the state under the commissioner sys
tem there shall bo three county commis
sioners , to bo elected by districts.
The regular order being taken up , a num
ber of petitions nnd memorials were re
ceived , nil pertaining to Omaha Interests.
The following resolution from the Omaha
City council was read and referred to the
Judiciary committee :
Whereas , There Is tin association of per
sons In thu city of Omaha nnd South
Omaha organized for the purpose of con-
trollng the price of lee and preventing com
petition , an association commonly known
as an "Ice trust ; " nnd
Whereas , This association arbitrarily
fixes the price of Ice , conditions under
which It must bo bought , us to time , from
whom nnd at what price ; nml
Whereas , Said association or trust has
for some tlmo nnd la now exacting' exor
bitant prices from consumers and , having
a thoroughly organized monopoly , Is com
pelling said consumers to pay tald exorbi
tant prices ; and
Whereas , Said trust or association has ,
In addition to ehaiglng exorbitant prices ,
established obnoxious rules one of which
requires private consumers to pay for Ice
In advance , thus giving said trust the
benefit of the use of about $00,000 per year
of the people's money wuliout compensa
tory benefit ; and
Whereas , Trusts nnd associations ot such
character are Inimical to the public weal
and are forbidden by th > : statutes of the
state of Nebraska ; now , therefore , bo It
Ilesolvcil , by the council of the city of
Omaha , That the legislature Is hereby
respectfully requested to direct the attor
ney general to forthwith proceed to en
force the provisions of the statutes In such
cases provided ; ana be It further
Resolved , That the attorney General bo

Douglas county to take .such action as

Wlnslow raised tbo point of order that
n motion to reconsider was the oniy
one that could be entertained , and that Jen-
kins' amendment was out of order. Speaker

Wheeler got the floor nnd said that he be-
llovcd tha cnnteitants were guiltless of any
crime. Clark of Lancaster f-ald thot , ns

YORK , Neb. , Feb. 1. ( Special. ) Evangc-
llft Wolfe , who has been conducting a sen-
satlnnnl campaign nt this place against sin
for the past month , made nn unusually stir
ring address at the Baptist church Inst
Saturday night , in which ho roundly de
nounced secret smetles and all fraternal
orders. The Masons , Odd Fellows , Modern
Woodmen , United Workmen , all came under
his condemnation. Ho declares that no
Christian can be a member of these societies
without Injuring his spirituality thereby.
His remarks were based upon the passage
in the bible vhlch warns all In the faith to
hold themselves aloof from the- world and
Its contaminating Influences. Ho says Ihc
benefits derived from the fraternities are
misleading and that the spirit of brother
hood which obtains in societies is antagonis
tic to the church. lie delivered n tirade j
against the Insurance feature of secret so- J
clctles nnd said that he carried all his Insurance - I
anco In the word of God. Later on , however , i
ho advised his hearers to carry Insurance In I
old line companies. At times the speaker's '
language was almost violent , and profanity
marked his sulphuric climaxes. The Intel
ligent people of the city are highly In
dignant rtver the sensationalism of the
evangelist and are greatly relieved at the
fact thot ho left the city this morning.

which , after golfing over the acute stage ,
settled in my kidneys and bladder , caus
ing me a great deal of pain and tumble
ever since. My feet and ankles were
swollen to twice their normal size. I
thought old age had a good deal to do
( vlth my condition and had resigned my
self lo remain a sntl'erer for the rest of
my life. Hut I noticed wlieie the news
papers were to test Dr. Ilobbs SparagiiH

they sent me. I started taking them at
