Mrs. Winifred Cooley , Suffragette , De scribes an Ideal Husband. New York , July 5. What is the modern woman's ideal of n husband 1 ? Mrs. Winifred Harper Cooley , suf fragette , author of "The New Woman hood , and a daughter of Ida Husted Harper , says that the ideal husband of the modern woman : "Must bo n man who will bo some thing besides a husband and n father , just ns women aspire to become some : thing besides wives nnd mothers. "Ho must not be Jealous. Jealousy is the product of Inordinate exclusiveness - ness , distrust and a deslro for pos- > tession. The man who kept a harem could conceive of no sensation in love save the desire for possession. "Ho must trust the woman he loves variety in taste nnd also believing In virtue. "He need not be possessed of brute strength. Woman's admiration for mere physical prowess is on the de cline. "He muBt be handsome handsome In the accepted sense of straight fea- lures , and a line figure. "He must be a man as pure nnd gen tle ns he Is strong. "He must be a man who recognizes that a wholly developed , versatile Individual - dividual desires many experiences In life besides protracted nnd all absorb ing domesticity from the age of IS until death. "He must bo equipped mentally to become a true comrade , for , as Professor ser Slosson of Wyoming university , lias said : 'Tho future of civilization depends more upon the proper mating of the rising generation than on any discovery they may make in the arts and sciences. ' 'He must be n man who understands that a woman does not earn her board by living with him ns his wife. Mar riage | is the voluntary union of two loving ] souls. "Ho must not be ashamed of nor apologetic for his wife , nor glory In | her Ignorant helplessness. " | LONGER PIERS FOR BIGGER SHIP. I New York to Follow Liverpool In Pro viding for 1,000-Foot Ships. New York , July f > . The news from London that the Mersey Dock and Harbor board has decided to begin at' once the construction of docks large enough to accommodate C0,000-ton i steamships has renewed agitation ' here for a similar move on the part . of the New York harbor authorities. The coming of the 1,000-foot liner has long been heralded. Such a ves sel could easily enter this port , but' where it would berth would be a vexE ing question. The piers In the New , Chelsa section are about S25 feet long and alongside there Is a depth of forty - ty feet. The following table shows how , in the last few years , the sie of the' Trans-Atlantic vessels h&s steadily in creased : Length , Beem , feet. feet. Tons.

Norfolk was the only city of its siife In the United States that received ( complete returns from the big prize fight direct from the ringside. There were few cities in America of less than 50,000 population that got the bervlce Norfolk did on the battle. On ly three cities In Nebraska got the complete btory Omaha , Lincoln and Noifolk. These are the only three cities In Nebraska In which an Asso ciated Press leased wire is maintain- led. The News being the only newsI paper In the world In a city of this i size , which has Its owu Associated ' Press wire. Other cities hi Nebraska , outside Omaha , Lincoln and Norfolk , I depend upon "pony" reports for tele I graph service they get 500 words a day , whereas The News gets many thousand words every day by wire. A packed house at the Auditorium listened to The News bulletins ns they flashed in from Reno. About 1,000 people were guests of The News for the afternoon. Among them were out- of-town men from all over northern rna. Nebraska and southern South Dakota. It Was a Jeffries Crowd. It was u Jeffries crowd at the Audi- torium and every time Jeff made a move that looked like lighting , n cheer went up. A cheer went up , too , when the Hash came that Johnson had won jnr in the fifteenth but it wasn't a cheerful : - ful cheer. It wns a downcast crowd kda that wended its way out of the thea ; - ter- Ten columns of telegraphic matter from Reno were telegraphed to The News more than 10,000 words dur ing the day , on the prize light. - The Wire Fairly Sizzled. The News leased wire fairly ed ns those 10,000 words burned over it from the ringside. Karl Stefan , the expert telegraph operator on The News wire , took stuff so fast that it bothered his typewriter to keep pace with his fingers. Mr. Stefan is one of the most accurate and one of the rest- steel ceest telegraph operators in the United States and the way In which he ate up the electricity from Reno was an admirable sight to see. Busy Moments for The News. They were busy moments for The News from the Instant the flash came Dethat the fighters "are off , " until the Instant when the final flash came , "Johnson wins In fifteenth. " Every nerve fibre of the newspaper ) tuforganization wns at high tension. The antelegraph Instrument's metallic race seemed to be fighting against the clicking of the linotype machines trying to bury them with copy. But Bethe linotypes swallowed the fight dope nnd asked for more , so that within nofive minutes from the time the fight ; had ended , the extra edition wns ; ready for the press. The page forms of type shot down an elevator nnd oswere locked In the press , a motor buz- zed , there wns a heavy rumble as the gigantic machine started and then it began belching forth extras at the rate of 0,000 an hour all printed nnd for tin ; malls. Out-of-town subscribers were sup plied with the extra , and train news agents sold hundreds of them. An incident of the afternoon that was appreciated by the crowd/was the free distribution by Ed Becker , a toov bncco dealer , of 100 choice cigars. Commissioners' Proceedings.

Cities throughout the United States ' not fortunate enough to have an Asso- ' elated Press wire , have been dealt n hard blow by the announcement of the Western Union , that the company would not give out any Information in regard to the Jeffries-Johnson prize fight nt Reno. This as far as known is the first time In the history of telegraph clr cles that the Western Union or Posta' ' ' j ' will not handle light bulletins and the t saloons , theaters , pool halls , clubs j , and other public gathering places arc the losers alongside the large telegraph - graph concerns who heretofore have reaped a harvest by selling the figh returns. Norfolk , however , Is fortunate. Tin Daily News will have its leased win I attached to the ringside wire nnd not a second will be lost in giving the [ i people I the results of each round nnd a : story of the fight. Bulletins will bo , displayed ( In the Auditorium nnd no admission fee being charged , the pub- i lie 1 will bo guests of The News. The story of how large telegraph [ companies and the Associated Press handle fight returns is an interesting one. one.Here's Here's how the Western Union used ! to handle a big fight : Operator Sits Near Ring. Close to the seconds' corner at the ringside long before the fight is be gun were a number of telegraph in struments , behind which only the best operators in the country were seated. Prom these instruments were wires leading to the main offices of the telegraph companies where through repeaters the wire ran east and west on the best copper wires the companies had. No Receiver Could "Break. " All the way to San Francisco , Seat tle , Portland , Omaha , Denver , Chica go , and further east through other re peaters the wire was connected eid hundreds of operators were stationed at the instruments called "blinds" ow > ing to the fact that the receiving operator rater , should he fail to bo able toile "read" the clicks from the ringside iloh could not stop the sender even though he open the key. A. P. Wires Direct. Only to the larger offices aid the lieo direct wire run , except by the ; o elated Press who cut in all their offices Hire ces direct. At each large office there were from four to eight operators stationed , supplied with typewriter nnd manifold paper , each taking about ten copies of the fight bulletins. These copies were usually sent to the de livery department through pneumatic tubes and handed to the messengers who at once mounted their bicycles and delivered them to the anxious crowds at their destination. Many of the saloons ordered loops attached , to the main line and an operator was made nervous receiving the returns behind n bar or on the stage In front of a cheering and noisy crowd. Ringside Operators Had Grief. While this was going on the operator rater at the ringside V having his : grief. As he watches tf o crowd como into the arena ho opens his key nnd commences his work , Probably John L , Sullivan enters the arena , a second end later the entire United States knows of It. Then he hears the bets going on nnd that too , ho sends over the line. The number of people is ers , actors nnd other well known people ple are pouring In and the people hun dreds of miles away find It out In n | moment. It requires not only an ex traordinary telegrapher to handle the work , but one who Is familiar with everybody < of note. San Fran Manager the Best , t'sually at San Francisco the man ager of the Western Union of that ' city , himself , sent the fight returns. I 1U is considered the best man "on the job" In the country. The preliminaries are soon on and as the lighters Jab at each other each jab , Its weight , where placed and each movement of Jhe fighters Is sent by the tcelgrnpher. Tells of It Round by Round. The big fighters come Into the dressing rooms , and the crowd cheers. They are weighed In and one enters he ring. The people all know It. Ie sits in his corner , nnd the opera- or tells of it. Then he tells what olored trunks this pug wears and .vhluli corner he has. Then the ot.li- r lighter comes Into the ring nnd he referee Introduces them. The rowd cheers. Some fighters dial- enge the winner. They pose for he moving pictures and soon the fight s on. The public has the entire de- crlption of the ring , arenn and can ilniost In fancy see the entire scene , md nre ready for the result. The fighters shake hands and at his moment the telegrapher is a tri- Ie behind and the sparks from his icavily battcrled instrument can be seen. He has caught up with the ight and with ease he tells of how the battle is fought and who is the vie- or. No Interest In Frame-Up Talk. Whether the fight was a "frame-up" was of no vital interest to the great telegraph companies of the United States. Their only objective point be- ng the question as to how many sub scribers they could get for their bul letins and how satisfactorily nnd econ omically they could furnish the coun try witli the news direct from the ring side. It Is estimated that every city in the United States having a telegraph ollice formerly received the bulletins of ! big fights. And how did the West ern Union and Postal furnish all the cities and towns the returns ? This Is a question which probably many light fans have never though about. All that Norfolk people know about It is , that they have ordered the bulle tins from the local operator. Linemen strung loops all over the country which ran from the main tel egraph offices to pool halls , saloons , clubs , gambling houses , amusement parks and every imaginable place of note and otherwise. Extra telephones were Installed and n large force of ex tra messengers hired nt a high salary. Telegraph Company's Attitude. The Western Union Telegraph com pany has announced that they will under no consideration handle the Jeffries-Johnson prize fight returns. Many applications for the bulletins by Norfolk people have been turned away by Manager Lancaster of the local office who received the following tele gram from C. J. Nelson , superinten dent of the Western Union : 'All applicants for reports of the Jeffries-Johnson fight on July 4 should be notified that we will not handle the. service in any manner whatever , and' ' that regarding it no bulletins or oth er information will be furnished. " No Arrest In Flene Case. Wayne , Neb. , July 5. Special to The News : No arrest has yet been undo in the Louise Flege murder case. Yesterday afternoon the two detec- Ives working on the case sent out in he country for William Flege , the brother with whom the girl lived , and hey kept him here for some hours. , The two detectives are still here. Day Claims Seven in Omaha. Omaha , July 3. A "safe and sane" Fourth of July in Omaha resulted in seven fatalities and numerous kinds of excitement , taken together , which gave the police a lively twenty-four hours. Four persons were drowned in Cut-Off lake , one was run down and killed by an automobile , one was suffocated as the result of a practical joke and the seventh fatally shot dur ing a quarrel. Four are Drowned. The four drowned persons are : Theodore Lind , John Barton , and their wives. The Llnds and Bartons were friends who were taking an outing at Court- land Bench. They rented a large row boat and it is believed they capsized when the members of the party at tempted to change seats. Lind wns the only one of the four who could swim nnd wns the last one to sink after the boat overturned. All sank before aid could reach them. The bodies were later recovered in eigh teen feet of water. Boy Killed By Boy Autoist. Elliott Robinson , n 17-year-old mes senger boy , was run down and killed by an automobile driven by Robert Hamilton , another 17-year-old boy , at Twenty-fourth nnd Corby streets. Young Hamilton is under arrest. Negro Killed In Quarrel. Henry Anderson , a colored employe of a local hotel , was shot nnd killed by another negro , Red Dale , In a Four teenth street saloon. The shooting resulted from n quarrel. Dale surren dered to the police. Dead In Practical Joke. Tom Green , a barber's porter , wns tied to a chair in which ho was sleep ing nnd left in that position by prac tical Jokers. When found in the stuf fy room by a police , the negro had been suffocated. AN IDEAL DAY FOR FOURTH. Norfolk Stayed at Home and Enjoyed June Weather Fireworks at Night. It was an Ideal Fourth ot July. The weather was rather that of June than on the Fourth. Norfolk people divided their attention during the day , most of them remaining nt home. The Coun try club wns a favorite spot for n Inriuc number. A big crowd stayed 'lowii town In the nfternoon to get the Ight returns. There were fireworks all o\er town at night. The Stuart Penny.

" FIGHTERS ON THEIR WAY. Jeff and Johnson Each Leave Reno In a Special Pullman Coach. Reno , July 5. Jack Johnson , with his bass viol , his trainers nnd his camp equipment , is speeding toward Chicago cage in his special car Redondo on a train that left Reno soon nfter mid night nnd will reach umcago Thursday morning. Ho is under contract to fill vaudeville engagements for a time nnd says he will be glad to get another fight soon , but so far as can bo learn ed no man in the world Is really eager to get into the ring with him. Jim Jeffries , the wealthy farmer , will leave for his homo In southern California on his special car Gray- mont tonight. As n result of the fight he Is probably $100,000 richer , and the damage to his body and tbo humilia tion of his spirit will bo healed la time. time.Most Most of the prize ring celebrities hnvo departed and Reno , yesterday the capital of the world , has shrunk to Its normal. The negro population of Reno Is not nearly so happy today as might bo ex pected , for ninny risked money on the fight. Johnson Is not a hero among most of his race who have met him. Sam Berger , manager for the de feated champion , said today : "Jeffries , of course , Is bitterly dis laer appointed. Ho feels ns ho said after the fight that the weight of He opinion drove him back into the n nnd that his failure may not bo viewed lightly , although ho knows ho did his best "Jeffries Is in good spirits , consld- back to his quiet home life. We ex pect to spend n day or two in Snn Francisco nnd then go south. If we don't make connections , wo will go ! down tomorrow. " Berger said that all of the loser's share of the purse and picture money had been turned over to Jeffries. The swelling around Ills right eye was \cry evident and ( hero wen1 nu merous slight bruises and contusions around his nofcc and mouth , but his face showed little discoloration , the work of the rubbers and trainers liav-i Ing gone far toward removing the signs of defeat. Mrs. Jeffries was not to be scon. It was said about the camp that she had completely recoveicd from the shock caused by her husband's defeat , but she still feels the strain. Jack Johnson was ? 120f > 00 richer when Jim Jeffries went down for the last time In yesterday's fight. He took CO percent of the $101,000 purse , which amounted to $ CGOO ( ) , a bonus of $10- 000 , and ho sold his picture rights for ? 50.000. Jeffries took a fortune out of the defeat at Johnson's hands. He re ceived -10 percent of the purse , amount ing to $40,400 , the bonus of $10,000 , nnd he sold his picture rights In this for ? GGCGG , making his total $117,000. , Picture Men Hope for Million. The owners of the picture films are calculating on a million dollars profit. FINDER OF WILD PIGEON NEST Canadian Claims $1,000 Reward Offered by Naturalists. Dr. Clifton II.

A telegram 1ms been received from Mr. 1'atlciice stating that lie had ills covered a nest , with a female sitting on it. nnd Dr. Hedge stated that bo would Immediately go to Ontario to In vetliinie the claim.

This particular breed of pi geon was- numerous in America up to the early eighties , but since then has been gradually dying out until now the species is very rare. "Chantecler" Profits. A French publishing house is said to have received orders for 200,000 to 300,000 copied of its three francs fifty centimes edition of "Chuntecler , " and the weekly I/Illustration is paying M.

But all their time Is not i i spent in weeping , and sorrow is not [ t the only emotion they display , on tbesu occasions.

Then when this pious duty la performed they gather In little groups [ and have a good time gossiping about the living. Thus the day of mourning IKo is very popular among the Moslem wo men.
