    Woman at Seventy Proved Up On Wyoming Ranch

    Mrs. Amelia Schmitt, a widow, who at seventy had gone to Wyoming and proved up on a 640 acre ranch, died Tuesday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. August Bollman, in Omaha. She was 77 years old at the time of her death.

    While on her homestead near Moorcroft, Wyoming, Mrs. Schmitt attended night school to obtain her citizenship papers. After being naturalized, her citizenship papers were her prized possession, and she had been most proud of her ability to speak English. She had lived in America only twelve years.

    Four of Mrs. Schmitt's children had come to America before her. Twelve years ago they wrote her to come and live with them, sending her a ticket. When she got here she gave them back her ticket having worked her way across.

Wealthy Omaha Recluse is Dead; Lived in Attic

    Special to the Star

     

    Omaha, Nebraska, June 5 – Frank Pitelka, aged 76 years, and for thirty-five years a resident of the South Side, died yesterday at his home, 2313 N Street, after an illness of more than a year.

     

    Although reputed worth $100,000, Pitelka, lay for weeks in an attic, refusing medical attention or any assistance from outsiders.  Finally he was persuaded to move to the cottage in which he died, and where he received the ministration of George Kaeper, a nephew, and Mary Lissey and Anna Horkey, nieces, who came from Cleveland more than a month ago.

     

    Pitelka came to this country from Austria shortly after the Civil War, without a penny to his name.  By dint of hard work and close living he accumulated the fortune which during his life was more of a burden to him than a blessing.

    Ralph J. Smith    

     

    46, Springfield, was found dead in his bed in a Sterling Motel at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

     

    His body was discovered by the motel manager after a maid was unable to get into the room Wednesday afternoon.

     

    Smith had registered Tuesday night at the motel. He was listed as a representative of the Master Craft Furniture Co., Omaha, Neb.

     

    Whiteside County Coroner John Ardapple said death was apparently due to natural causes. A later autopsy revealed that death was caused by a fatal heart attack.

     

    The body was returned from the Grennan and Son Funeral Home to Springfield this morning by the Staab Funeral Home of that city, where funeral services will be held Saturday morning.

    Omaha, April 17: Gray-haired old Fred M. ("Lone Star") Hans, former chief scout of General Phil Sheridan, and perhaps the last of the "two gun, cross arm draw" experts, died here Tuesday night with his boots on. But not on a battlefield did death come to him, nor on the wings of a bullet. He was crushed to death in an elevator shaft at the World-Herald plant where he was night watchman.

     

    Hans, who had never been beaten on the draw, was credited with killing 20 men, among them 14 Indians. He was the official investigator of the Custer massacre for the war department. Formerly, he was chief special agent of the Northwestern railroad." end of obit.

    Fred M. "Lone Star" Hans

     “Echoes of Fort Calhoun”


    Resume of Important Historical Events and Cheery News Items, edited by W. M. Woods.

    Our dear friend Lone Star Hans is dead.  Died, not as he wished no doubt, but in an accident in the World-Herald Building.  Perhaps two years before he tried to be a farmer at DeSoto, someone told him that I was collecting Indian relics with E. E. Blackman and Dr. R. F. Gilder and he came to from Omaha to bring copies of his large bound volume of Indian History and later as our friendship increased he gave me ten copies to give to my friends.  He was not cut out to be a farmer and strange tales were told of him, but the worst we knew of him was his tendency to boast of past deeds, something we to often do, as it is not always considered a serious crime.  From him we learned why so many flint arrow heads and stone equipments were scattered all over our hills, and why when they destroyed everything they could at the Fort, and failed to carry things away that would have been good use to them.  It seemed that any impliment that failed them in an emergency became bad medicine and they discarded them, and things that they got from whitemen that they had not got in a legitimate way was white man’s bad medicine, and the quicker it was disposed of the better.  We found him congenial, always ready to answer our questions and a good companion and we are sorry to learn of his untimely death.”

    Mrs. Frank E. Moores   

    Services For Late Mrs. Moores 

    Simple Rites Will Be Conducted at All Saints Church Tomorrow 

    The funeral of the late Mrs. Frank E. Moores will take place from All Saints Church tomorrow, Wednesday afternoon at 2 o’clock, and, in accordance with her often expressed opinions during life, the service will be of the simplest and most unostentatious character. 

     

    Members of the family know that with her dislike of useless display she would so prefer, and have arranged the funeral accordingly.

     

    It is only on account of the hundreds of friends who will wish to pay a last  tribute of respect to the deceased that the funeral is being held from the church, as the family residence, though large, would be totally inadequate to accommodate them.  Rector Mackay will conduct the services.

     

    The Pallbearers will be four members and two of the oldest Omaha friends of the family:  Mr. John Alber of Logansport, Indiana, a brother-in-law; Mr. Zachary Taylor of Logansport, Indians, a nephew; Mr. E. E. Matchett of Kansas City, a nephew; Mr. A. W. Matchett of Cincinnati, Ohio, a nephew; Weir D. Coffman and Joseph Teahon.

     

    The body will be placed temporarily in the receiving vault at Prospect Hill Cemetery until a family vault can be built in the same city of the dead.

     

    In addition to other members of the family whose arrival has already been noted, Mrs. George Parslow of Cincinnati, a sister of Mayor Moores, and Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Matchett of Cincinnati, sister and brother-in-law of Mrs. Moores, will come tomorrow morning.  Mrs. August Matchett of Kansas City, Mrs. John Alber and Miss Jennie Daws of Logansport, sisters of Mrs. Moores; Mrs. Ida Taylor and Mrs. Zachary Taylor of Logansport, Indiana, nieces of Mrs. Moores, arrived yesterday.

     

    A special meeting of the city council was held yesterday.  Official notice of the death of Mrs. Frank E. Moores, wife of Mayor Moores, was conveyed to the body, and, on motion of Mr. Mount, it was decided to close the city hall on Wednesday, the day of the funeral.

     

    On Motion of Mr. Lobeck, it was ordered that the superintendent of the building drape the rotunda and entrance of the city hall.

     

    President Karr and Mr. Mount were appointed a committee on carriages and flowers.  The members of the council decided to attend the funeral in a body, and will ask the other city officials to do the same.

     

    The fire and police board met last night to pass resolutions of condolence and respect in memory of Mrs. Moores, and adjourned without transacting any further business.  The resolutions are as follows:

     

    “Whereas, the hand of Providence has seen fit to remove from our presence Mrs. Kate E. Morres, the beloved wife of our honored mayor, Frank E. Moores, thereby bring grief and desolation to the happy home, and depriving him of a loving wife and the children of a kind and loving mother; there fore, be it.

     

    “Resolved, That, by the death of Mrs. Moores, not only the husband and children have been severed from a dear companion, but the people of Omaha as well have cause for deep grief at the sad death of the most respected and loved woman; and be it further

     

    “Resolved, That the sympathy of this board be extended to his honor, the mayor, and his family, and that this resolution be spread upon the records of the board of fire and police commissioners, and a copy be sent to the bereaved family.”

    Runaway

     

    Returning from Riverview Park

     

    Wild Team on South Tenth St. Collides With

    The Carriage and in the Rush That Follows,

    Her Skull is Fractured.

     

    Omaha, Neb. June 11-

     

    Mrs. Kate E. Moores, wife of Frank E. Moores, mayor of Omaha, died at her home at 8:55 p.m. Saturday, the result of a terrible runaway accident, which occurred three hours before.

     

    She had attended a picnic given by her daughter’s Sunday school class at Riverview Park and was returning home in her own carriage, accompanied by Mrs. T. J. Mackay, wife of the rector of All Saints church, and little daughter.  When near St. Joseph’s Hospital, on South Tenth street, the horses became frightened at a runaway team attached to Dr. Porter’s buggy, which crashed into the carriage occupied by the two women.  In an instant the fiery horses were beyond control of the coachman and dashed down the street at a terrific pace.  Mrs. Moore’s, weak and nervous from fright, attempted to alight from the carriage, but fell to the pavement, striking the back of her head on the curbstone.  The skull was badly fractured at the base of the brain.

     

    After Mrs. Moores fell the frightened animals galloped on down Tenth street, barely escaping serious mishaps a number of times, until Mason street was reached.  Here the horses ran into a wagon, throwing them from their feet and stopping the mad flight.  Mrs. Mackay had clasped her little daughter tightly to her breast and remained in the carriage until the final collision, when they were thrown on the horses with the coachman, but fortunately all escaped serious injury.  The carriage was wrecked and the horses came out with only a few scratches.

     

    After a preliminary examination and treatment by the physicians at the drug store Mrs. Moore’s was removed in an ambulance to her home at 617 South Eighteenth street.  In the meantime the son and daughters had arrived, but it was nearly an hour before the mayor could be found, as he had been entertaining Envoy Wessels on behalf of the city.  The mayor was finally notified and hurried at once to his wife’s side.

     

    Surrounded by her family, Mrs. Moores passed away, never having regained consciousness.

    Barton and his brother in law, Dave Hively, were fighting in the street.   Barton pulled his revolver and fired at Dave, but just at this instant the elder Hively stepped between them and received the bullet at the side of the nose. 

     

    The doctors say that Hively cannot live.  Barton has been put under arrest, it is said that the quarrel between him and Dave Hively was due to the charge that Barton had been beating his wife, formerly Emma Hively.

    Body of John Petty to Be Returned from Florida

     

    The body of John Petty, 48, killed at Miami in the hurricane, is to be brought to Omaha for burial as soon as relatives can arrange for its return. Mr. Petty, who lived in Omaha for 20 years prior to February, 1925, was a brother of Robert Petty, 3915 Ames avenue, and Lincoln Petty. He was unmarried.


    Mr. Petty was a carpenter by trade, and had lived at Plattsmouth before coming to Omaha' Efforts on the part of Robert Petty to learn the details of his death have been fruitless. John Petty's name was included in the death reports from Miami, giving relatives their first intimation.


    Surviving Mr. Petty are his mother, living at Plattsmouth; a sister, Mrs. Carl Wynn of Plattsmouth, and six brothers, Hershel of Council Bluffs, Lincoln and Robert of Omaha, and three others living in scattered parts of the United States.
