THE BEE: OMAHA"; WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER " 17, 1919.
Lincoln Bureau Omaha Bee SUIT TO OUST JUDGE HOLMES IS NOT REGULAR So Declares the Attorney General in His Report to Governor McKelvie. Lincoln, Sept. 16. (Special,) It was purely a case of certain city officials at Omaha trying to pass the buck up to the state authorities when Assistant City Prosecutor T. B. Murray asked to have proceed ings started for the removal of Mu nicipal Judge Holmes, because the latter, it was charged, had dismissed a complaint against Frank Maloney, charged with bootlegging, when, it was claimed, the proof of his guilt was clear. So says Attorney General Davis In his report to Governor McKelvie regarding the case. Mr. Davis recommends that no action be taken to oust Judge Holmes and that if Murray has the proof he claimed lie has the proper thing for him to do is to start another prosecution in any court of Douglas county where he thinks he will get a fair show. It develops from the investigation made by Ralph P. Wilson on behalf of the attorney general's office that no complaint was ' ever filed and sworn to by the Omaha city prose cutor's office against Maloney. Moreover, says Wilson, Holmes was acting at the time, not as a mu nicipal judge, but temporarily as po lice judge, whereas Murray sought to have him removed from the mu nicipal court, which has little or nothing to do with the trial of bootlegging cases. t Primary Elections to Constitutional Convention Held Lincoln, Ncl:.
