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
"He need not be possessed of brute
strength. Woman's admiration for
mere physical prowess is on the de
"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

"Ho must not be ashamed of nor
apologetic for his wife , nor glory In

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.

How Norfolk Got the Fight.
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
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
in the fifteenth but it wasn't a cheerful : -
ful cheer. It wns a downcast crowd
that wended its way out of the thea ; -
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-
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.

Scenes Around the Ringside.
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
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
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
could not stop the sender even though
he open the key.
A. P. Wires Direct.
Only to the larger offices aid the
direct wire run , except by the ; o
elated Press who cut in all their offices
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
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-
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
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.
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.

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
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
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
"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

Jeffries took a fortune out of the
defeat at Johnson's hands. He re
ceived -10 percent of the purse , amount

nese actress , who had boon a friend o !
the assassinated Prince Ito from tier
childhood , told the following amusing
anecdote ;
"In my frequent quarrels with my
husband we sometimes asked Prlnco
Ito to judge between us. One day
when we had had a more than usually
violent dispute at Chlgn nkl the prince
came In unexpectedly , and t asked
him to decide the question. But be
declined , while proposing the follow

" 'Go down Into the garden , both of
you. and lifrht it out like sumo tori

Cemeteries Where Women Gossip.
Friday , the Sabbath of the Moslems ,
when all true believers of the mascu-
Une gender make a point of going 11ti 11o [
fhurch. their wives , sisters and daughters
ters resort to the cemeteries and wall
for the dead. But all their time Is not i i
spent in weeping , and sorrow is not [ t
the only emotion they display , on tbesu
occasions. They take with them
bunches and garlands of ( lowers and
decorate the graves of their relatives
and pray and weep over the dead fern
n time. 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
is very popular among the Moslem wo
men. It gives them almost the only
opportunity they have of cultivating
tliH acquaintance of their neighbors.
