His death w as due to a' complication of heart and lung trouble? and came at a time when he appeared to he enjoying his nor I mol state of health,' which had not, how I aver, been very 'Men for the last two or three years. "Blind Charlie" for many years had been a well recognised character In Omaha and adjoining towns because of his long service on the local 'streets' In the Interests of Christianity. . - - . He came to ' Omaha Vrver-- fifteen years ago and, belntfa convert to the Presby terian faith, took np the work of preach ing the word of Ood on the streets of this city. AfterTits arrival here,' In the middle of nineties, he chose to preach the gospel from street corner to the people of Omaha and South Omaha. He was so enthuslastlo In his work" that 1n' the- last two years, when It was fob nd that his health was fall ing and he wou'd kill himself If he con tinued the strenuous preaching on the streets, he would not quit the work and take up a more simple.' way of preaching. Doctors advised his 'retirement over a year ago; friends urged him to quit, but . he was persistent In his efforts to carry on "the work of the lord" and stayed at his task until the hand of death mowed him down. His 'friends now feel that his devotion to his work cut off several years frnm hla life." " ' ' SerVe4 Hla Xatlpa la War. 7 Rev. Charles R.

I Good Samaritan Falls in Den of Thieves, Real Den City Abstracter Carries Mayor's Par don to Woman Beater and Gets Locked Up. Now, watch a certain emotional news paper throw a big fit. Taking a direct slap at Guardian William J. Bryan and Ihe recent state legislature, the University of Nebraska through its athletic board will make a formal request to John D. Rockefeller for a gift of $50,000 to equip its newthletlc field. If the oil king answers the request he will be honored by having the field named after him, the title proposed being "Rocker reller Field." . The scheme of raising the money for fix ing up the field has Just materialized and has the support of Chancellor Avery and Governor Shallenberger. A petition that will be sent to Mr. Rockefeller has( been drafted and the men In control of athletics at the university are getting the signature; of several of the leading men of Lincoln and Omaha to sign It so the oil king will know that the request Is made in a serluu way by the Nebraska professors. Among those who will be asked to sign the petition will be Governor Shallenberger who has already signified his willingness to do so. For a while it has been Intended to have Chancellor Avery attach his signature also, but a few of the wiser heads among the professors saw a grave danger for the chancellor In doing that and decided that he should not do anything that would make him an object of attack by Bryan or his organs. Request Will Go East Soon. The paper making the request will go to the oil king early this summer not later than the first of July. It probably will be presented In person by one or two of the unlvereity professors. Considerable effort has been made by the athletlo board and professors of the Cornhusker school to keep their novel scheme of getting the 150,000 from being brought Into tho strong light of publicity. The professors do not believe they can be kept from taking the money, for the re quest Is going to be made formally by the Cornhusker athletic board which Itself is an organization Incorporated under the laws of this state. This board will receive the money, of Mr. Rockefeller consents to give It, and the university Itself will have nothing to do with the gift. The 150,000 which the Nebraska athletic board is trying to get from the oil man will be needed to put the new athletic field In shape by next fall. The recent legisla ture appropriated onely enough money for buying land for the field and did not give the university any money for building bleachers, grandstand, fences, and other buildings that will have to be placed on the new site by fall. Hill Starts the Water to Flow And behold, there mas a good Samaritan who fell In a den of thieves. Going to the county Jail Tuesday after noon with a rardon for Manley Hlghtshoe. an alleged woman beater, from Mayor Dahlman, Wood Hartley, city abstractor and one of the mayor's loyal supporters, was Jokingly made a prisoner In a solitary cell at the county Jail and kept there over two hours, while the beneficiary of his good deed went free and was Ignorant of his benefactor's plight. "I'm coming down with a pardon for Hlghtshoe." Hartley told Jailer Ed Gardl pee over the telephone. All right," answered the deputy, "we'll have him ready for you." But the office force also had something else ready for Hartley when he arrived. "Here's the pardon," Hartley said to Gaidipee when he was ushered through the Iron gate of the Jail In the main office. "Where Is the man?" "Just step Into Deputy Collopy's private office and he will fix you out," courteously invited Jailer Gnrdlpee, motioning Hartley toward a closed door that really led Into a solitary cell where desperate prisoners are temporarily kept and which was oc cupied for several days by the train ban dit Fred Torgensen. In the obliging city official stepped, glowing with the thought that his friend, Hlghtshoe, would soon be set at liberty through the united efforts of the mayor and the city abstractor. And out Jailer Tom Collopy stepped, slammed the Iron barred door and locked It with Hartley meekly peering through the bars and wondering "what he was In for." And the Jailers are now telling what a "rich" time they had for two hours, while Hartley's pardoned woman beating friend went free and Hartley him self walked a 6xS-foot floor for 120 long minutes, doing his best to persuade the deputies to release him. Hlghtshoe was convicted June 7 of as saulting a woman with whom he had been living and against whom he first tried to secure a police court complaint, charging her with having taken a shawl from the room where they had lived. He was sen tenced to thirty days In the county Jail and had only served eight when released. The assault took place In full view of the city Jail and was witnessed by a number of officers. Including the arresting officer Detective Charlie Van Deusen. SAFE FOR MAYOR TO LEAVE No Abolition Ordinance Introduced Gives Dahlman a Chance.

President Butler is to Visit Omaha Head of Columbia University Will Stop a Day Here and Meet Alumni and Public School Teachers. Projected Burlington Line in Wyom ing Opens Up New Irriga tion Schemes. The announcement of the Burlington road that It had decided to build a line down the Big Horn canyon, has put In motion several large Irrigation schemes hanging fire for some time. In 1906 the Wind river reservation was thrown open for settlement and the Burl ington's new line will skirt along the edge of this reservation. Asmus Boysen has surveys made for irrigating 30.000 acres of land, the water to be pumped from the river by the big power plant which he has constructed at the entrance to the Big Horn gorge. The building of the road means also that another large town will soon be built In central Wyoming, wherever the Burlington decides to meet the Northwestern line, which now runs from Shoshonl to Lander. CHILD STRUCK BY MOTOR Little Fellow Knocked from Track, bat Fortunately Is Not Berl oasly Hart. Sammy. Rumarlo, a boy of 4 years, whose parents are Italian and live at 118 South Seventh street, was knocked off the track by a Harney street car going south on Pierce street. He and other children were playing in the tracks and the car hit him. So far as could be determined by a casual examination his only injnry was a bruised arm. He was taken to the residence of Charles C. Carleton, 1115 South Seventh street, and given attention by Police Sur geon Newell. President Nicholas Murray Butler of Co lumbia university, formerly head of the National Educational association, will spend Tuesday of next week in Omaha on his way to the meeting oC the association at Denver. At the request of Victor Rose water President Butler has accepted an in vitation to stop over and take occasion to meet the alumni of Columbia who 'lve here. The Columbia alumni will arrange to entertain him at luncheon, and upon in vitation of Superintendent Davidson of the city schools a reception will be tendered President Butler in the afternoon by the publlo school teachers, probably at the First Congregational church. President Butler will be Informally entertained by Mr. Rosewater In the evening .and leave Wednesday morning for Lincoln, where he Is to visit the summer school of the State university, and then continue his trip to Denver. Mayor Dahlman will abdicate tonight and Councilman Louis Burmester of the Third ward, president of the council, will reign In hla stead for the remainder of the week. The mayor has been advised that It Is safe for him to leave the city at this time, as the "traitors" In the council could not abolish the ordinance offices and fill them with men of their own choosing short of two weeks time. And the mayor will be home Sunday. Ordinances abolishing the offices created by ordinance could be passed with the concurrence of the acting mayor, but all ordinances must lav over two weeks be tween Introduction and passage. If these proposed abolishing ordinances had been Introduced two weeka ago the "traitors" could call a special session during the mayor's absence and pass them on the final reading, thereby dispensing with the services of several of the "obnoxious" members of the mayor's cabinet. No ordi nances have been Introduced along the lines thought of and therefore Mr. Dahlman can leave the city In perfect safety, know ing that his appointees will be on the Job when he returns. President Burmester, acting mayor, says he would not think of doing anything rash during the absence of Mayor Dahlman, for he hopes for an amicable settlement of all differences. To this end the mayor has asked for a conference next Monday on appointments. Johnson Courts Peace. Councilman Johnson, one of the "trait ors," unbent Tuesday to call on the mayor, but what the executive and the councilman raid neither will divulge. Councilman Johnson says he Is for a com promise, but he also says he will not vote to confirm the present Incumbents of city positions unless they get to work and quit hounding the council men. A bunch of these fellows In the city hsll has formed a sort of society for preven tion of cruelty to appointees," said Mr. Johnson, "and they seem to think It Is their bounden duty to tag at our heels every minute and Insist that we vote for their confirmation. I tell them they had better get to work and do what the city is paying them for, or they won't have any Jobs to confirm. Mayor Dahlman goes to Alliance In a spe. clal car chartered by the South Omaha commission merchants to attend the an nual convention of the Nebraska Cattle Growers' association. The convention will be held Thursday and Friday. Saturday evening he will attend a banquet at Kear ney to be given by the Buffalo county de mocracy and will respond to the toast', "Local 8elf Government." Governor Shallenberger, Arthur Mullen, Judge J. J. Sullivan and W. H. Thompson are among the other speakers. eOT csis asst. ca.
