PLEADS IN VAIN FOR CHILD Abaadoned Woaaan Asks Police for Dead (Ulster's Mttle Oae, Takes from Her. Mrs. Novak, whose home at 1515 Daven port street was raided by the police a night or two ago and where a child of 7 was found, went to the police station Wednesday night and asked that the girl be returned to her. When told that the Child Baring Institute had care of th child the woman put her hands to her face and sobbed bitterly. "My God, my God," she said, "It was my dead slater's child; give her back to me, please give her back to me." Though the woman has figured on the police register more than once and is said to reside among the lowest cIars of women, her love for the child-seemed real. She said the child had a father living In the west but would not give his address as she thought he might attain knowledge of the sltuatfon his daughter Is placed In and take her away. Tho woman had with her Some of the child's clothing and a little ragged doll which she said had been "Tony's" favorite. John Tuma, one of her boarders, accompanied her to the police station and said the child waa receiving proper care from Mrs. Novak and did not come In contact with any low women. KNOCKS OUT OMAHA REUNION Action at Kearney Has Effect of Changing- Arrangements for Fall Meetlaa-. The action taken by the Nebraska en campment Grand Army of the Republlo at Kearney Wednesday In discontinuing th practice of holding state Grand Army re unions will have the effect of abandoning th plan for a stats reunion In Omaha this fall. However, the Douglas County Veter ans' association has not abandoned the plan and it was only waiting the action of the department encampment before definitely deciding upon holding a county reunion of old veterans here this fall. The association will meet Monday, June 6, to decide upon tha matter. It was the intention of the Douglas county association to Join In with th state reunion, but should that project be abandoned, as It now llkeJy will be, Douglas county veterans will hold a re union anyhow. Tha stata reunions have been deteriora ting In Interest more or less for several years because of the growth of the district reunions and the final abandonment of the state reunion will be approved by Grand Array men all over the state.

DAY ADVOCATES SEW JAIL Judge Thinks Bttr Building- 8 bold B Ereottd by Conntj. OLD PRISON Kf PT AS WELL AS POSSIBLE Makes Visit of I a .pert ion and Finds Km Boons for Complaint with Man agement, bnt "tract are la Inadequate. i In accordance with a provision of the statutes of this state. Judge Day baa made a tour of inspection of the Jail and Its surroundings. 80 far as is within the power of the sheriff to control, everything was found in the beet of condition, scrupu lously clean and, the prisoners in as happy and contented a frame of mind as men in their position could well be. A notable Incident of the trip through the gloomy oorrtdors waa the smile of pleasure and good feeling that lit up the usually sinister faces as the Judge, before whom nearir all of them had appeared and many been sentenced, made his appearance and was recognised. Many pressed eagerly forward with a proffered hand extended and In no Instance was the humble greeting Ignored. Many were the requests for as sistance and relief that were poured into his ear, and to each he gave such hearing as the limited time at his disposal al lowed. The most material fact demonstrated by the inspection of the Jail was Its utter In adequacy for the requirements of th Douglas county of today. In the main body of the structure Is one large steel cage, practically unbreakable, but of unique design, that, by crowding. my be made to do service for forty-eight men. Thus filled, six men must sleep In one small cell and the whole number get what of exer cise they have In a corridor scarcely four feet wide by about thirty long. This cage consists of two tiers of cells constructed of steel bars with steel floors and callings and tha whole within an outer cage of coarse wire mesh to prevent any outsider who may call upon a prisoner from pass lng through to him any firearms or other weapon. Meana of Jones' Escape. It was from one of the upper cells In this cage that Jones, a noted horse thief, made his escape four years ago. In the first compartment of the east wing of the Jail Is a large room on the ground floor, used In common by all the prisoners Incarcerated In this part, while above are the ceils which they occupy at rilght. In one of these Is James J. Reed, the con vlcted murdot-er of Glenna Hlnes. . Boms of the "bootlegging" Indians, re cently convicted In the federal court, r also confined In this part of the Jail. In th extreme end of the wing are tha cells for the solitary confinement of especially dangerous snd desperate criminals. They are steel cages, sight feet square, set in the center of steel bound rooms of about twice the size, and completely separated from even the noises of the other parts of the Jail, as well as the sight and sound of the outside world, by massive steel doors and thick walls. It was from on of these that a negro was taken by an angry mob some years since and lynched In front of the Boyd theater. Woman's Portion Also Clean. Th women's portion of the prison, In the wing facing Harney street, also was visited and found to be In the sam clean and orderly condition as the rest. There are now nine inmates,. Including Ella Hurst, the kleptomanfeo . domestlo, .whose case and condition at-this time are partic ularly pitiful. "What ought to be done," said Judge Day, as he took a long breath of the out sldft air, "Is for the county to buy th vacant lot opposite the present Jail, on the corner of Seventeenth and Harney and erect a new structure large enough for Its needs. That lot would allow the building of a Jail yard, which, beside providing a place for the prisoners to work and to exercise, would lessen the chsnces of any ' escapes from the I net! tutlon. It would be a comparatively easy matter to build a tunnel .from a Jail so located to the court house and the chanoe for the delivery of any prisoner going to or from the courts that now exists would be done away with. It Is only a question of time when enlarged quarters for not only the Jail but for the courts must be provided, and it probably could be done cheaper now than at any time ' In the future. I do not know of any change In the administration of the affairs at th Jail that my Inspection of it auggeata I think it is run about as well as it can bo under th circumstances." C.S.LOBINGIER DELAYS ACTION Withholds Aeeeptanco of Philippine Judgeship I'ntll Formal Notice Is Received. C. S. Lobingler, the Omaha lawyer who has been appointed Judge of the court of first Instance In the Philippines, Is with' holding his acceptance of th plac until the formal letter of notification arrive from the bureau of insular affairs at Washington and he obtains mora particu lars concerning the appointment. Aside from the presa dispatches Mr. Loblsgier's Information consists of a telegram from the department at Washington stating the fact and advising that a letter will follow. The court of first Instance In th Island is a federal court of general Jurisdiction, ranking next to the supreme court snd above th provincial courta - Th minimum salary paid lta Judges Is 13,600 in gold, with a maximum of (5,000, according to th dls trict in which the incumbent Is situated. While Mr. Lobingler has been .desirous of obtaining a plac of th kind, he has not been an active candidate. Recently Jams H. Blount, Jr., of Georgia and Prof. Johnson of the University of Michigan law school were named as Judge of the court of first instance. "I think the Philippine islands afford great opportunities," said Mr. Lobingler, "not only from the standpoint of th In dividual, but in this case from th pos sibilities of good that can be accomplished in the establishment and administration of our form of government and Institutions there. Careful and painstaking work will have to be done and a great deal of. it. I am pleased to have been selected as Judge of the court of first Instance, but cannot say positively whether or not I shall go until I know more about the conditions surrounding the post." Flower Cnttlas; Mot Allowed. The superintendent and overseer at Kountse park have had reason to complain on several recent occasion or persona plucking flowers within tha park limit, and have taken steps to have such practices stopped. A day or two a no a woman waa seen to cut a good-sized bouquet and was Informed that such was a violation of tha rules. 8he expressed sincere regret of hav Ing tranngre.cd the regulations, of which he disclaimed any previous knowledge, and assured the authorities she would not do so again. The authorities were satisfied that tla woman was wholly Innocent of Inten tional offense, but desired mention mad a of tha matter as a means of restraining others. U-K. Wadding Rings.
