History

Charles Luth, a switchman, was murdered here by Charles Leonard, chief clerk to the superintendent of the Omaha Railroad on July 14, 1894. Leonard was registering scabs at the hotel when Luth objected. A fight ensued and Leonard shot Luth. After trial Leonard was found not guilty. Funeral procession of 3,000 to Oakland Cemetery was led by the Knights of Pythias band, a fraternal lodge to which Luth belonged.
