Omaha nerves were badly wrenched
again Wednesday night about 6:34 o'clock
when a fierce electric storm, accompan
ied by a gate of wind, broke over the
city. The wind was gutty, the govern
ment gauge at the postofflce building at
no time recording a velocity of more
than ten miles an hour, white down along
the southern edge oi the city It attained
such furry as to cause many to think
that a repetition of the tornadlc disturb
ance of Easter Sunday was being
enacted. Unusually vivid lightning, with
accompanying crashes of thunder, and
the terrific downpour of rain gave a
spectacular effect to the storm that
might have been enjoyed by any whose
love for nature's grandeur nad not been
tempered by the racking experienoe of
the storm of Eanter.
From many sections of the southern
part of Omaha reports were had or
minor damage done by the wind, some of
the work being rather severe on the
property owners. Outbuildings and light
structures suffered most one' or two
houses were unroofed, and one house In
course of construction was blown' dowm
.I'VaUermt-n. Caught in IUrcr.
The Missouri river was a wjld' place'
when the wind was at Its height, and
several river men were caught on the
water in their skiffs. At police head
quarters, several reports came In to the
effect that a number of men were
drowned. Officers were sent out to
verify the reports, with the result that
each report was found false.
John Kohout, a fisherman, living at
First and Pierce streets, was missing
for a while and It was said he met death
In the river. Iate at night, he came
home, drenched to the akin. Ills boat
was upset by the waves, but he clung
to It until It finally lodged on a 'sandbar
on the Iowa side.

everything ho possessed. He recovered

Others he accused .of having hackmon,
hotel porters and bell 'hops on their pay
roll at a nominal salary for "shovlne"
business their way. He made a motion
to appoint a committee of five to in
vestigate members of the profession ac
cused of employing fee splitting In their
practice. The motion was adopted. A
motion made to employ a private detec
tive to get the "goods" on the doctors
was lost by a slight majority.
Accnsrs Dr. Henry.
Dr. Fall, a member of the state board,
acoused Dr. Henry, one of the prime
movers in the antl-feo splitting agita
tion, of splitting fees wtth other doctors.
He cited a specific Instance in whloh two
other doctors brought a case to Dr.
Henry. The latter charged 6150 and gave
6100 to the other doctors.
Dr. Henry did not deny the charge, but
said he told his client that he had split
the fee with the other doctors.
Country physicians In attendance at th
convention nccused the Omaha doctors
of fostering the practice of fee splitting.
Dr. Fall said he has found it hard to
make a living because Omaha doctors
split fees. Omaha surgeons started this
nefarious practice and now they are try
ing to secure a remedy for It, he stated,
and that It would be Impossible to stop It.
