TITE OMAILV DAILY TEE: TUESDAY. MAIJCTI 29. 1903. BEniND THE BOODLE IKOIIRY Some Interesting Information that Comet from Pretty Good Sources, VINSPEAR SENDS LETTER TO COMMITTEE Eldrnr Taken ffalal la lliff Drri Only of rry Indefinite and " Inullnhrtnrr lkir drier, It Is unrIortnl from n aourrp which Is In i'i: tourh with the nenatp Investigating cummltlt c, which lias . br-en taking testl- ( rti'iny mi the ? buooip fund story, that t tie evidence did not cllrlt ny substantial ironf of the raising if any boorlle fund, or of any arrannem' ntu to use any money cor luptly to procure Ui uaHiige of the bi ennial election bill. "The story told by Judge Vlnonhaler," fays this Informant, "was substantially that which had been told In the papers, but wan uneorrobora ted by anyone who had any more detlnlte Information, t was shown that the state organization of rounty offi cers was behind the bill and had employed Lyslo Abbott to represent its Interests by preparing a brief and presenting the matter to the members of the legislature. Mr. Ab bott admitted that he was being paid by the association, but that In this amount the share that Douglas county would contribute was not more than J2.1. "All the county eifHrcra denied that they had put up-any money outside of their as sociation. , 2t stems to me that somebody was simply trying S make a play In the nature of a Kamhla on the passage of the bill and was figuring on raising some money which a lot of legislative on-hangers ex pected to divide amonpydicmBclvcs In case the bill past-ed.", ..i Wlnapea Wrltea a Letter. The following letter was yesterday ad dressed by Mr. Wlnspsar, who has ligured In the Rearing, to Senator Sheldon and the members of the "cnnte investigating com mittee: OMAHA, March 2fi. Gentlemen : It ap pears I hat the statement I made to you concerning a meeting of the count of tiiers on or before the 15th of February, this year, in Lincoln, for the purpose of discussing the best ways and means of promoting the passage of houpe roll 2;ili, commonly called the biennial election bill. Is fully proved to be so, as you have the corroborative statements, as J understand, of Lysle I. Abbott, who says 'about luu members were present and agreed to con tribute $3 each lor lawyer's expenses to em ploy him as attorney to look after the legality of the bill. Thl is a matter of f;reat importance and I ask you to probe nto that matter further, because I know that It would be easily shown that these men contributed much larger sums of money not that 1 wish U say that they f;ave it to Mr. Abbott, because I believe le was only acting as attorney and to get. as he says, f-TiU or Kit), making It very necessary to know the amount that was raised, which was a great deal more, and In what manner they expended It and who received It, as they did not, by the testimony of Mr. Abbott, pay It out for attorney's fee and at torney's expenses. I would suggest that you require Mr. Abbott to give, the names of these officials that were there and that you take proper steps to get their testi mony as to what they contributed. That the World-Herald was closely connected with that boodle fund. If you can call It such, there is no doubt, because nt that time Hichard I.. Metcalf of the World Herald agreed to whoop It up In the col umns of that paper to shape public opinion In favor of that hill and Its passage, which everybody that has read the World-Herald knows Is true. Hesldes that. I know that Harry Miller, deceased, who was countv clerk of Douglas county, raised a large sum of money three years ago, and John Tower, the present pheriff of Douglas county, was chairman of the committee and ex-County Treasurer Elsasser was custodian of that fund, and that mnnev has been and Is being paid out this winter for the purpose of pushing said bill through the legislntute. Hellevlng that you want to get at the truth Of the matter 111 this fnvi.oH.ra 1 1,-, and preserve the honor of tho penate and me gooo name or your committee, vou must certainly see the necessity of pro- mini mi- iiivepiiKHiion as i nave Indicated. I will furnish you with all the help In the matter that lies In mv power 10 ao justly, etc J. H. WINSPEAR.

Mrs. Kagle suya thnt tho fall of the fence was a cas.ua belli for Mrs. Walker. Monday morning about 8 o'clock Mr. Engle was. attacked by the colored woman while returning from a visit to a neigh bor's house. Several families were aroused by her screams and saw her lying on her back In the middle of the street with Mrs Wulker on top pummelling her head with a brick. When they went to the scene the assailant ran away. The injured woman was carried Into a house with blood streaming from her head, and Police Burgeon Kennedy was called. lie found tho extent of her Injuries to be scalp wounds and bruises.

Commonly, the first symptom of "cold " is a chilly feeling, accompanied by sneei- liig, or a tickling in the throat. The most frequent of eztemsl cause are draughts, wet or cold feet, or going from hot rooms suddenly into cold ones. More frequently there U an inner cuse namely the stagna tion of the blood caused by constipation or biliousness. Almost the first symptom is the feeling of cold in the feet aud increased discharge from the nose. No one ever takes cold unless consti pated, or exhausted, and having what we call mal-nutritlon, which is attended with impoverished bl(d and exhaustion of nerve force. Tonics consisting of large portions of alcohol, iron or cod liver oil do not bring the desired changes in the blood, because they do not etittr the system and are not absorbed into the blood, with the exception of the alcohol, which shrivels up the red blood corpuscles when it does come in contact with them. We recommend the botanical extract of Dr. Pierce because it contains no alcohol, and otters a reasonable and scientific method of treating the blood, by improving the nutritive functions of the patient.

I'nited States District Attorney Baxter reached here yesterday from Chicago, where he has been assisting in the Invest! gation of the Beef trust before the federal grand Jury. He went to Chicago from Washington. Speaking of the investigation, Mr. Baxter said: "The Investigations In the Beef Trust matter are proceeding with much vigor under the direction of United States DIs. trict Attorney Morrison, at Chicago. The investigations are of great magnitude. there being over 200 witnesses under sub poena. About all of the Omaha witnesses have finished their testimony, and have returned to tneir homes. I was not a witness in the leases, but merely an as sistant In the prosecution of them before the grand Jury. I am still under orders to hold myself in readiness to assist In tha cases, when in the opinion of District Attorney Morrison my services may be needed. Nothing has thus far developed that I am at liberty to give to the public "It Is the Intention of the govenment to go after the Illegal fencing of public land In Nebraska vigorously. Two special agents have already been put In the field to assist Special Agent Defrees to make a thorough Investigation and the removal of all illegal fences will be Immediately ordered.

Those In charge of the local employment agencies are clearing their decks for the spring rush they beileve will come within the next few weeks. At present there is no unusual activity around these agencies, but the prospects for a large demand for luuor are bright. "I really think thei-a will be little excuse for a man being unemployed In this part of the country when the season shall have opened in earnest. There are Just loads of big jobs in sight for Ncbriuika, Wyoming, South Dakota arid Colorado, said an em ployment agent. Demand tor farm help is only normal at this time. It is principally ntllroud con struction work. Irrigation projects and such enterprises that the employment men say will bring large demands for help. Kllpatrlck Bros. & Collins, railroad and general contractors, one of the largest firms in the west, have just written an Omaah labor employment firm that they expect soon to make a large call on this territory for men for their government work in Wyoming. Freeland Bros., one of the large local labor agencies, just shipped three carloads of men through from Chi cago to tne Black Hills for ballast work on the Ncrthwesteru from Kalrburn to Buffalo Gap. . '. It Is announced that the Big Horn Bail road company bus let the grading contract for the new line from Krannle, on the Toluca branch of tho Burlington, to Ther mupollH, Wyu. Bishop J.

Then tha Northwestern la to build au ex tension from Casper to Lander and Into the Big Horn basin. All of this work will draw on the un employed of Omaha and surrounding coun try. Omaha Is quite a clearing house for railroad laborers, who drift here from time to time and are shipped out to tho various centers of construction work in large num bers. Most of the calls for farm help are com Ing from the northern and northwestern part of this state. NEW START 0N THE PAVING Unalneer Department Serves Notice on Street ItallWay to tiet Tracks Heady.
