.5 f HIGH AFTER BOOTLEGGERS Anti-Saloon Superintendent Qets List of Government Licenses. ALSO IS AFTER DRUGGISTS IIIrH Eny While lie I Annlnitt the Snle of Llqnor lip Will Pro ceed PI rut Attnlnat Those Selling UleRnlly. Indications of activity of the AMI Satoon league were apparent yesterday, when V. A. High, district superintendent of Omaha of the. league, with an assistant, started to copy the records of govern, ment licenses Issued from the otllco of XIosb It. Hammond, collector of Internal revenue for the state of Nebraska. It has been said that there were more ' bootleggers In Omaha than there were legltlmato saloons and Indications arc that the activities of the Anti-Saloon leaguo will be directed toward tho boot loggers and others who sell liquor In violation of, thd law, Including those druggists who neglect to keep a register of their liquor sales. Tho records In tho office of tho col lector of Internal revenuo hero show all ecvernment liquor licenses Issued In the etato of Nebraska, and It. Is probable that tho campaign against these violators of tho law will bo waged not only In Omaha, but throughout the cntlro state. "Wo are emphatically against liquor Belling by anybody," said Superintendent Jllgb, "but wo urc moro Interested In the prosecution of a bootlegger or drug gist who Is selling liquor Illegally than anybody else. We bellove that If any one must sell liquor tho men who have paid tho license for tho privilege of sell ing liquor should bo permitted to do so Instead of bootleggers. Wo will go further to prosecute a bootlegger or il legal selling drug Btoro than anyone else." Threatening Skies Cause Much Alarm There were many anxious hearts In Omaha Tuesday afternoon and evening when tho sky became dark and a bad storm threatened. Downtown shoppers nervously sought early cars to their homes, and folks at home closed up their houses tight and waited for developments. It was less than twenty-four hours from the anniversary of Omaha's tornado, and all the Indications were similar to those of that tragedy, even to tho dark cloud In the southwest and the heiivy dust In the atmosphere. But with courage citi zens wore a bravo front and inwardly returned thanks when tho possible visi tation turned out to be nothing but a Ilttlo rainstorm.

"You see, judge, if she Is not fed raw meat exactly as the midnight bells are sounded by the city's clocks, she will create such a disturbance aa to keep us awake for the rest of tho night." "Why don't you pui her outside?" asked Judge Foster. "Well if we do that she'll scratch on- tho window panes and the door so hard that It Is just as bad as tt she was In tho house." The Judge, under the belief that Huff man had been searching for-and found a drug store, imposed the sentence, but later suspended it because of the man's family.
