TALK OF CLUB BY YOUNG HEN
Eeporti that 8plit in Omaha Club i Seri
OLDER MEMBERS LAUGH AT IDEA
T(r Blond C omplain of Lark of
Life mn Wants to Have K.
elusive Home Krerted or
Taunger members of the Omaha club,
Omaha's most exclusive men's organiza
tion, are talking of seceding and either
erecting a. new building or renting; or buy
ing ether quarters. They say the club
noes not rank with those in Kansas City,
Denver, Minneapolis and other mid-west
cities and declare the pollry which has
always been In vogue Is too Inactive to suit
them. They blame the. older and more
nedate members for this, and, so far, hav
ing been unable to secure control, are dis
cussing the feasibility of drawing out and
going by themselves.
Two propositions already have been con
sidered, one being to build a home on the
.vacant lot Just west of the Omaha club
at Twentieth and Douglas streets, and the
Other 'to lease the new Chatham apart
ment house, constructed by Sir Horace
Plunkett, opposite the Millard hotel. A
third factor Is snld to be contained in the
declaration of the Racquet club that It
wants to build a house and already has
appointed a committee to report on loca
tions and the advisability of so doing.
Peck Isn't Disturbed.
President Peck of the Omaha club
ays that, so ' far as he knows,
accession among the younger mem
bers has not been discussed seriously.
He attributes the reports to the Racquet
club's building Idea. This organization was
set on foot by Nt P. Dodge, Jr., about three
years ag.i to stimulate interest and pro
vide facilities for squash and hand ball.
The rooms are at 10 South Fourteenth
streets and the courts have become
crowded and more are reeded. The mem
bership is about thirty and Is composed
of the richest young men in town, Luther
Kountse being president.
Mr. Dodge does not think the desire of
this club to own a building Is promoted
by any disposition to break away ' from
the Omaha club, but admits having heard
talk concerning withdrawal and 8 In
dependent organisation with more vim, if
a trifle less dignity.
The real germ that has developed Into
Insurrectionary plotting, however, Is said
to be the reflections upon the Omaha club
contained In Meredith Nicholson novel,
The Main Chance." The name "Clark
son" la substituted for Omaha throughout
this book. Chapter 11 begins:
' I.onllest Place In Town.
"The Clarkson club was. during most of
the day, the lonllest place in town. Only a
few of the sleeping rooms were occupied
regularly and luncheon was the one Incident
of the day that drew nny considerable
number of men to the dining room. The
an tiered heads of moose and elk were hung
In the hall and colored prints of English
hunting scenes and bad oil portraits of sev
eral pioneers were scattered throughout the
reading and lounging rooms.
Conservative members 'of the organization
laugh at the Idea of a new club and say
there are not enough young men In town
who are rich enough to make a second ex
clusive club a go. The latter, however,
have considerable assurance and are trying
to find out just what they can do. ,

FEBRUARY TERM IS OPENED
District Ceart Session Brines
Hen and Women of Manx
Phases of Life.
It was a queerly assorted procession that
thronged the gloomy halls and corridors
of the Court house yesterday, prior to
and during the opening of the February
term of the district court in Its various
branches, and one that offered to the
thoughtful student of human nature un
limited advantages. Old men were there
and old women, too, who patiently Jostled
one way and another by the throng, old
men with gray hair and shoulders bowed
low with their burden of years and trouble.
Men who have walked these same halls
ever more wearily and ever more slowly
for months and even' years, hoping egalnst
hope that at last Justice was to be meted
out to them and that the hoard of a" life
time's hard work, perhaps, wrested from
them, might be returned by the order of
the all-powerful court. Others were there,
more prosperous looking, anxious to
retain their hold upon money, and
lands and property, perhaps honestly
acquired and perhaps otherwise, men with
beetling brows and sullen, scowling faces
and their wrists circled by handcuffs that
have long since failed to chafe them, being
hurried along by the officer In charge, to
answer to some crime. In that throng were
thieves and theologians, preachers and per
jurers, morbid sightseers and men whose
presence there meant their bread and but
ter, all kinds, colors and conditions of bu
As Is always the case, the criminal court,
. With Judge Day on the bench, claimed the
larger part of the crowd, and In this room
all was confusion Incidental to the empan

Johnson for burglarising the home of
