FIRST OF EMERGENCY MEAS
URES TO CHECK PROFI
TEERING IS PASSED.
Washington, Sept. 7. With only
seven negative votes recorded, the
senate late today passed the f.rst of
the emergency coal bills, the house
measure designed to check profiteer
ing and control the distribution of
coal. The vote was 40 to 7 and the
measure, as amended, was sent to
conference for adjustment of differ
ences with the house.
Passage of the anti-profiteering
bill was followed immediately by
consideration of the fact-finding
measure, but final' action on it was
deferred by a sudd?n and at times
heated debate over provisions which ,
would direc t the commission to study
the Question of nationalization of ,
the mines, along with other phases
of the industry. j
Measure Amended I
Before quitting for the day, the
commission bill was amended to di- ,
rect the agency to make a separate
and distinct investigation of the an- i
thracite industry and to inquire into
any "organized relationships" be
tween miners and operators if they
doubt. The change was a direct re
sult of the recent settlement of the
anthracite tieup and Senator Borah, j
republican, Idaho, sponsor of the bill
in the senate, had previously with-,
drawn it from consideration in order j
to await developments of the anthra
cite peace negotiations. !
The commission is ordered to make i
its report on the anthracite industry !
not later than July 1, next year,
which would be one month in ad-
vance of the expiration of the wage '
contract for that industry. A report j
on the bituminous study is due, un-
der the bill, in five months from date
of passage. i
Shields Proposal Rejected i
An effort of Senator Shields, dem
ocrat, Tennessee, to amend the bill
so that representatives of both min
ers and operators would be specifi
cally prohibited from membership on
the commission was rejected, but on
ly after Senator Borah had said he
agreed with it but desired "in the in-,
terest of harmony" not to inject that
feature into the bill.
The fight on whether th? commis
sion should be directed to inquire in
to the advisability of nationalization
i3 expected to be resumed Friday as
a result of an amendment to strike
out that section. Senator Sterling,
republican. South Dakota, opposed
the provision because of the extra
work which he said it would require
of the commission to study "a specu
Senator Borah denied Insinuations
that the proposition would lead to
open issues, but added that even if
it did "there can be no solution of
any question by dodging and evad
ing." Borah Wants Facts
"It can be decided," he went on,
only by ascertaining the facts and
dealing with them in the establish
ment of a policy."
The Idaho senator also asserted
that the commission proposed by the
bill was not "an ordinary one to
gather .a lot of incoherent data to
be dumped in the waste baskets of
congress." What he hoped it would
be was a commission to gather the
facts, assemble them and make re
commendations from the findings

MOTHER SEA OTTER
"It Is quite true," said Mother Sea
Otter, "that though I am a grownup
otter I still love to play. I fancy there
are many creatures like that.
"Yes, I believe there are many
grownup people who still love to play
and like to be given the chance every
once in a while.
"We're something like seals In our
looks and In our ways, and our fur Is
very valuable. We're smart because
we can smell things a long distance
away and can smell danger when it Is
ahead. Sometimes curiosity has
gotten the better of a sea otter. Some
times that has happened. I've been
told that the Mrs. Otters in the zoo
won't allow their children to come
there, for they don't care for zoo life
and they don't want their children to
be brought up in the life they don't
care for themselves.
"A sea otter is very devoted to her
children and wouldn't want them tc
have anything wliich she didn't like,
nor would she want them to live any
place which she didn't care for par
ticularly. And the Mrs. Otters are
not fond of zoo life, not fond of It at
all. Everyone knows this. We all
love shellfish and other good things to
eat. My children, though, are my joy.
Some creatures may care only for the

food they are going to eat, but the
Mother Otters care about their chil
dren more than anything else In the
world. How I love my beautiful
babies! How gay and playful they
are I I never tire of playing with
them. I teach them some of the otter
family ways, but mostly I play with
them, for they should be happy and
gay and should be played with a great
deal, the precious dears."
"Were you talking about us, Mother
Otter?" asked the Otter children,
"I was talking to myself about you,"
said Mother Otter. "Did you want
Mother Otter for anything, my dar
lings?" "We wanted you to play with us,"
"Gladly will I come and play with
you," said Mother Otter.
"We've made up some nice, new wa
ter games, and some fine water
sports." they said.
"Good!" said Mother Otter. Til
And she did. She played with them
all of the afternoon and there was
the greatest splashing and playing and
fun-making that afternoon.
"Mother Otter," said the little Ot
ters, "you are such fun to play with.
"It's nice to have a mother who will
"I don't think a mother should be
otherwise," said Mother Otter. "And
a mother who won't play with her
children isn't the sort of a mother

"Of course there are times when
mothers are busy and cannot play.
But when they aren't busy they should
be glad to play with their children.
Mother Sea Otter always Is."
"She always Is," the children
agreed. "And we're always so glad to
have her play with us."
"Tes," said Mother Sea Otter, "the
mother who plays with her children
Is the mother who is happiest, for she
Is not only loved as a mother but she
la loved as a playmate, too. I love so
to be a playmate to my dear Otter

will leave London fr the city of
Lhasa, which is buried behind the

under the auspices of the International
Buddhist union, representing all
schools of Buddhism, including the
Buddhist society of the United States.
Rare Books to Be Studied.
The mission will make a closer in
vestigation of the Tibetan people, their
customs, religion and language than
has yet been possible, together with a
stud' of rare books and manuscripts
known to exist in the moniistic li
braries. These are expected to prove
of the greatest value, not only to
Buddhist scholarship und to the study
of comparative religion, but in filling
many gaps that at present exist in the
world's knowledge of the early history
of a country which to the present day
is veiled in mystery.
The Tibetans live In mountain
strongholds 15.000 feet above the level
of the sea, T00 feet higher than Mount
Whitney, the highest peak in the Unit

Inhospitable to foreigners and to the
introduction of modern ideas.
Little Is known of the origin of the
people. Local tradition has it that the
progenitors of the race were "a she
devil of the Ilimalayas" and an ape
from the plains of Hindustan.

Governor McKelvie Starts Investiga
tion and Writes Sheriff he
Must Maintain Order.
Reports of disturbances in Chad
ron in the form of an alleged as- ;
sault upon Northwestern railroad
employes when they attended a mov- ;
ing picture show caused Governor
McKelvie to send Deputy State Sher- :
iff O. D. Hedge to that city to inves- '
tigate and report. The "governor in
sists upon the right of railroad em- ,
ployes who have taken the place of j
strikers being allowed to go upon j
the streets and in public places and !
to work in their places of employ- j
ment without being molested.
The governor finds that evidence j
is conflicting in regard to the al-1
leged assault. Railroad men report j
that an assault was made, while
Sheriff Vet Canfield says it did not ,
occur. The governor has been in
formed strikers were not responsible
for the disturbance, but that hood-,
lums were. The governor said in a ,
letter to Sheriff Canfield he is not
prepared to say the information that
has reached him is wholly accurate
so he intends to investigate. j
The governor was told that on the i
night of September 7 a large num
ber of people assembled in the street
and accosted certain citizens of the
community to the extent that an ef- '
fort was made bv some of the assem
bled crowd to strike and injure cer
tain other individuals. i
If this is true, it is a violation of
the law, said the governor, and it is
the duty of the sheriff to see that ;
those who are engaged in these vio- :
lations are arrested and brought to 1
"I am informed that there has
been comparative quiet in your com- ,
munity during the last thirty days, '
and this has been brought about .
principally by the fact that the pros- ,
ent employes and guards of the rail
roa dcompany have refrained from
going upon the streets of Chadron.
It is very well that these employes
should have been thus willing to de- ;
prive themeslves of a legal right that
they might have enjoyed, but it is
not to be expected that they will con-
tinue to do so. I, therefore, call upon
you and the other local law enforce- ;
ment officers of your community to
see that the rights of all of the citi
zens of your community to go and
come as they choose, without tres- i
pass upon the rights or property of
others, shall be held inviolate, and
that anyone who does attempt to pre
vent the exercise of such liberties
shall be restrained and promptly
brought to justice. t
"It is not sufficient to say that the
local officials wil ltr to handle the
situation. There must be the assur
ance that it will be handled, and in
the event ofour failure to do so, it
it your duty to call upon the state to
assist you. In the event, therefore,
that local officials do not handle the
situation, and this fact becomes ap
parent to the state, we shall Imme- ;
diately take it in hand without fur
ther advice from the local officials." j
