Its Grave by Resolution.

The life of the general electric light com-
.nlllco wns abruptly terminated by a resolu
tion which was adopted at the city council
meeting last night. The obsequies were of
the simplest order and no eulogies were pro-
.louticed over the remains of that which had
to K.tllnntly defended the Interests which It
had espoused. The ordinance fixing the rates
\o bo charged for commercial lighting , which
was Introduced some tlmo ago and referred
to the general committee , has never seen the
light again and Is believed to have been
burled In the same grave.
The mayor communicated his usual veto of
the bill of the Thomson-Houston Electric
Light company , and the veto was sustained.
The Item In the appropriation ordinance
for two months' salary for L. M. Rhccm as
acting city electrician was vetoed by the
mayor , on the ground that if the council
had not hung up the appointment of Edward
Schurlg the office would have been legally
filled and It would have been unnecessary
to pay Mr. Rhccm. In this case the veto
was not sustained.
The bill of Frank T. Ransom of $17.70 for
expenses to the supreme court In the matter
of obtaining a mandamus against the county
treasurer In connection with special tax cases
was also vetoed. The mayor's objections
were to the effect that the bill had never
been authorized by concurrent resolution of
the council and that the matter In contro
versy should have been attended to by the
regular legal department of the city. The
Item was passed over the veto.
The contract and bond of Thomas Casey
for feeding city prisoners was approved. Also
that of G. W. Tlllson for constructing the
brick culvert at Forty-eighth and Leaven-
worth streets , and that of George Huse & Co.
for the construction of wooden sidewalks
during the remainder of the current year.
The city engineer submitted a plan for anew
now sewer dhlrlct , which was referred to
ho committee on sewerage. The plan con
templates a sewer from Thirty-second street
on Cumlng , west to Forty-first street , north
on Forty-first street to Lafayette avenue ,
west on Layfao'te avenue to Forty-second ,
and north on Forty-second street to Hami
lton , and such branch sewers as are required.
The approximate estimate of the cost of
this sewer was $13,374.50 , making the rate
of taxation $1.00 per foot front.
The appointment of Henry Malthlescn as
deputy city clerk was affirmed without op
A petition from three property owners
asking that the paving of Corby street be
postponed until another year on account of
the hard times was referred.
The Corby street paving controversy was
reviewed by a petition asking that the street
bo paved with Trinidad sheet asphaltum.
The petition was accompanied by the certifi
cate of the cl'y ' engineer that It represented
a majority of the feet frontage on the street.
It was referred , with instructions calling for
a report at the next meeting.
A resolution was passed ordering the con
tractor to begin placing the election booths
not later than September 10. A coal box
provided with a lock and key will be placed
In each booth.
The pavement on Seventeenth street be
tween Harney street and St. Mary's avenue ,
It was ordered , should bo covered with six
Inches of cinders.
The city comptroller was directed to ad-
vertlso for hlda for lighting the streets of
the city with electric llgh's for three years ,
the lamps to be forty-five volts and 9.5
A resolution by Holmes directed the Judi
ciary committee and the city attorney to
submit nn ordinance providing for the sub
mission to the voters of the city at the com
ing general election of a proposition to com
plete the union depot at Tenth and Mason
streets. Adopted.
The following ordinances were passed :

sixth to Thirty-eighth streets ; declaring the

All of the ground between Eleventh nnd

low and the portion that Is not occupied by
railroad tracks nnd manufacturers Is covered
with a deiiFO tirowth of weeds , willows and
tall grilse. This Is the garbage haulers' de

thorn and notwithstanding the fact that the
ground IH nil within the city limits It U be

offensive kinds of garbage and night soil.
Roads linvo been made through the swamp
and the entire territory , bounded by the

with load * 'if kitchen garbage and Hanked by

Internal Revenue Collector North was a
very busy person yesterday and his
whole force of deputlrs wore working as
Ihey m-ver expeclcd to labor when they
received their nppolntmenls. The cause of
ell ( his rush of business was tha passage
of the senate tariff bill by the house Monday
night. This bill has , a pronounced effect nn
the manufacturers of alcoholic spirits zind
high wlno , and sugar.
The bill increases the tax on bndel liquors
20 cents per gallon and removes the 2-cent
bounty on sugar.
Yesterday there was n rush of dis
tillers to pay Iho bonded tax on all Ihe
liquors In Iho governmenl store houses , and
the Columbia Distilling company alone Is
said to have paid over $ .10,000 In taxes.
This liquor will bj removed to warehouses
and cellars , and tlie wholesale dealers and
saloon kcpers who can do so are laying In
a big Block at present prices , for whlbky Is
bound to go up 20 cents per gallon nn soon
as the now law goes Into effect. All the
oilier distillers In this dislrlcl are huslllng
lo gel their liquors out of bond and before
the president can sign the bill large quan
tities of the Jng producing liquid will bs
out of reach of the Jncroased lax.
What effect this Increase will hnvo on the
retail price of whisky Is yet to be determined ,
but Iho cheaper grades will probably re
main at the usual price of 15 cents a glass.
The manufacturers of sugar at Grand
Island and Norfolk have aske.l the revenue
collector to weigh all the condensed sweet
ness that they 1'ave on hand In order that'
they may secured the 2 cents bounty. A'
foice of depulles were put al this work
Immedlalcly nnd Ihoy expecl lo got oul of
Iho way of Iho offecls of the bill before It
can become a law.
This bill will prove partlculirly disastrous
to Iho mnnufaclurers of mcnl cxtrncls. This
Induslry has been enjoying n protective
tariff of about 35 cents per pound , but under
the senate bill the tariff has been reduced
to 15 cents per pound. The London manu
facturers can make bulk extracl for 7 cenls
per pound and pul II oa Iho market In New
York for 85 cents per pound , which is cheaper
than It can bo * manufactured In Omaha.
The Australian dealers as well ns those of
London can now successfully compete with
American manufacturers , nnd ns Cudahy and
Armour are the largest makers of cxtracls
Ihey will bo the ones who will buffer the
must. It Is not unlikely that this will
grcally reduce If nol pul a stop to the manu-
tactu'fo of meat cxtracls In this country , or
at least In Omaha , because Ihe foreign firms
can secure cheaper help and purchase meal
much cheaper limn can the American deal
ers. The manufacture of meal extracts has
grown to be quite an Industry In this conn- '
iry , nnd now Iho proprltlors profess lo see
nothing bul disaster for Ihem In Ihe passage
of the senate bill ,
The tariff on white lead has been reduced
50 per csnt , but al Iho Curler Whlto Le'id
works It Is said that this will not bring Ihem
Into foreign competition. U will have a
stlmulatliiR effect on this branch of trade , so
It Is claimed , but prices will not bo re
duced nt present.

The rumor was on the streets of South
Omaha last night that the strike was to bo
declared oft today. Even at police head
quarters the officers were congratulating
themselves on the good news , but "not a
striker could bo found who would admit
that there was any truth In the report. The
luadquarters of the executive committee
were dark after S o'clock and none of the
members could be found about the streets.
One thing In certain , and that Is that a
majority of the old men have made applica
tion to be taken back. Many of them have
been taken , while others have been refused.
It was estimated when the most men were
out that In all there were 1,800 strikers. It
Is now estimated that at feast 1,200 of these
men have asked for their old places and
that 1,000 of them were put to work. Not
as many persons from the outside have bcEn
put to work as was first reported. The
packers have said all the time that they
would prefer to have the old men nnd they
still talk that way.
The following communication was given tea
a nee reporter by Henry McKcmlry , who
for n long time has been employed at the
Hammond plant In the hog department. He
went out with the rest of the men and Is still
out. The letter explains Itbclf and Is as
follows :
Last spring the beef nnd hog butchers
were organized under the American Feder
ation of Labor. A Hliort time after n meet
ing was called to organize the balance of
the packing house cmp'oycs. I was pres
ent nnd wns elected temporary president
nnd signed for the charter under the condi
tion that there wns to be no strike. 1C any
trouble should arise It wns to be refeired
to the Central Labor union of Omaha. Two
prominent members of the union were pres
ent and said the day of strikes wns over.
This wns the belief of four-llfths of the
men who lolned the organization before
the strike. The strike wns the work of one
or two who had some grievance agnlnst
one of the packing houses , nnd the men
were used for I have taken
part In nil the meetings , nnd hnve nlwnys
ndvocnted n , settlement. I paid it wns
wrong to nsk the packers to settle for Chicago
cage , Knnsns City nnd St. Louis. When
the committee called on Mr. Cudnhy he
Bald : "If you leave out these other places
I will pay the schedule to the beef and IIOR
butchers , and In regard to the Inborers , I
cannot concede a general raise unless the
other houses do , but will Rive every man
a raise who Is worthy of It. "
After the committee made Its report I
said this was reasonable- fair , nnd every
mnn in. the hall knew the clrcumbtnnces of
his own family better than the men In
other places , nnd charity begun nt home.
I wanted to accept the terms nnd settle.
It could hnve been done nnd every man
could have been working the next morning
with n raise of pay. The men found out
that they had been fooled In regard to
other plncos and went back to the packers ,
but It was too late. The packers had got
together nnd hnd taken bnck the first prepo
sition. The strike hnd gone beyond the ex
pectations of either the packers or strikers.
I know , ns the mntter stands , both are
losing money , but the question Is which
cnn stand It best , the packers , with their
millions , or the poor mnn with his smnll
children nnd nothing coming In. This Is
for the cool heads to decide. Personnlly , I
cnn stnnd It better than the majority , but
there have been so many men who appealed
to me to try to hnve it settled that I went
yesterday to one of the managers and said :
"If this strike should be declared off , what
would you do with the men who were em
ployed before the strike ? "
He said : "If It Is declnred off I will re
store every man who worked In this house
before the strike to his former position , ex
cept three men , who bent men In my em
ployment. "
I thought this wns n victory for the men , '
nnd made a personal nppeal to them to ac
cept the terms , but it was of no use , nnd
nfter I got through talking some , men In
the hnll snld I ought to get a slap In the
face. I don't write this for the benefit of
the packers , for there are two houses I
could not get a Job In. These nre fncts , nnd
It Is for the cool bends among the strikers
to see what is best to do to settle the
There was trouble on the streets again last
night. At Twenty-fourth and Q streets
Peter Hanson and his son w re assaulted by
the men who are out. The bsy was knocked
down and kicked and the old gentleman
poundd on the face and head. There were
neither police nor militiamen at the scone ,
and as a consequence the assailants escaped
There are still two military companies re
tained here , but Inasmuch as there has been
so much censura by citizens of tho. strict
work of the guards , a new system was tried
last night. The guards were stationed at
Twenty-seventh and N streets and at
Twenty-fourth and N streets. When the
workmen passed up this str et there was no
demonstration whatever , nnd the crowd of
spectators was much smaller that It has
been any evening for the last week. The
work of keeping the people from blockading
the sidewalks was left to the regular psllco ,
and the change seemed to work very well.
At an early hour yesterday the militia
companies from York and Fullerton marched
to the depot and took a D. & M. train for
Lincoln. The David City and Batrlce com
panies arc here today and will remain until
relieved by other companies.
Surgeon I'rltchctt arrived this morning and
took charge of the camp. Ho reports that
many of the men are ailing to a certain ex
tent on account of the change In diet and
water , but none of them are serious cases.

Frank 0. Carpenter rpeclnl corresponded
of The Dec , Is back-dram Asia after one of
the most remarkable newspaper expeditions
on record. Durlnr the past six months ho
has traveled moro.than 25,000 miles , and ho
brings back with him. the notes of a scries
of wonderful experiences. Leaving America
ho traveled a thousand miles up nnd down
the Yangtse , through the most rebellious
regions of the Chinese empire , Investigating
the army , the forts and the wonderful fac
tories of China. Ho then went to Tlen-Tsln
nnd was hero entertained by LI Hung Chang
who threw open everything to him. He at
tended a Chinese banquet hero nnd took n
trip by the new railroad to the Chinese wall
In the viceroy's special car. Coming back
to Tlen-Tsln he went by donkey nnd cart
across the county to Peking and spent BOIIIO
time there gathering matter about the em
peror , the government and the capital of the
Chinese empire.
After a trip to the ruins of North China
ho returned to Tlen-Tsln by river , and thei
went by sea to Coren. He spent a month In
the Corean capital , was given on audience
by the king and the crown prince , nnd got
nn Insight Into the life of the nobility nt
Corea , such , ns he reports , as has not been
shown to any one else. He Investigated the
prisons , and , In company with soldiers , w s
shown everything. He took a trip across
the country over the mountain passes to the
west coast. Some of the places were so
steep that ho had to bo carried up them by
men , and In his tour he almost starved. He
looked Into the mines and resources ol
Corea , and has dug out a vast amount of In
teresting material. It must be remembered
that there are no guide books on these coun
tries , and that the matters about which Mr.
Carpenter writes are not described In books
of travel. It was only his letters and his
good Introductions that enabled him to get
the material which he has , and he writes
us that It Is better than anything he has yel
published. He Investigated the Corean army ,
with the assistance of General William McK.
Uye , the American gfneral who went over
there to reorganize It , and , with his photog
raphers , took pictures of everything. Only
a small amount of this mitter has been pub
lished , and inany of the letters to come wcro
written by Mr. Carpenter while on the
Going to the east coast of Corea , he next
took a trip to Russian Siberia to give us a
report on the trans-Siberian railroad. He
successfully passed the examination of the
police In Vladlvostock and took a trip over
this road , a part of which Is now In running
order. Coming back to Vladlvostock , he got
the material for a letter on the Russian
armies on the Pacific , nnd then went back
to Corea , visiting Gcnsan and the port of
Fusan In the south.
Leaving Fusan he sailed for Japan and
landed at Nagasaki , In the extreme western
part. Ho then made his way through to
Kioto , the mikado's old capital , and visited
the great Chinese gun-works at Osaka. Ho
has some original things to tell about the
new Japan , and he 1ms Investigated a num
ber of new Industries which , he thinks , are
destined seriously to affect our markets.
Leaving Kioto , ho- wont through the country
by railroad to Yokohama , the seaport , and
thence went to Toklo , the capital. Here
everything was thrown open to him. Ho had
letters from Secretary Lament to the minis
ter of war , and Introductions also to Count
Ito , the James G. Ulalne of Japan , who is
the premier of the government. He was
taken Inside the palace walls , and he had a
chance to sec behind the scenes as to other
Japanese features through his letters from
the chief of our secret service at Washing
ton to the chief of police at Toklo. He had
a good chance to study the army. He saw
the troops. In review. And he hnd many in
terviews with prominent men on the present
It takes forty days to get letters to Amer
ica from Asia In advance of the cable , and
Mr. Carpenter thinks rightly that he can. use
this material to better advantage by bring
ing it here than by remaining on the ground.
Before leaving , lie made arrangements for
full repdrts of everything that happened to

In as a special policeman the strike.
The man gave the name of Harry Johnston ,
although the police say his correct name Is
Harry II. Ward. Ward wore kid gloves
and strutted about the streets carrying a
largo club and talked enough to disgust all
but Anderson. He even gave the police
Judge pointers en how to conduct his court
and gave It out to others that he proposed
to work great reforms through Dave Ander
son and the city council.
Last evening nn officer arrived from Lin
coln with a warrant In his Inside pocket for
Mr. Ward and lock him later In the night.

JiuUu Scott Dculilr * that I'npploton Avenue
Dump IH All Might.
An Injunction suit , was filed In the district
court yesterday forenoon , In which P. & S ,
Iloyon and R. Peterson , the proprietors of
the Gate City Malt Company , sought to pre
vent the city from numplng | garbage at the
foot of Poppleton avenue. The written pro
test filed by the company with the Hoard of
Health Monday was disregarded , so the com
plainants sought a remedy In the courts.
The petitioners 'asserted ' that Instead of
dumping the refuse In the current , as was
promised , they were' ' distributing It along the
river bank. The oduis and the uncleanllncss
arising from the mass of filth was claimed
to bo Injurious to1 tbolr business , and they
wanted a pcrmanient Injunction prohibiting
any further use of Ibat point ns a dumping
ground. Judge Scott granted a temporary
restraining order. mid announced that the
case would be hearth In his office In the Now
York Life building at 0 o'clock Thursday
Commissioner of Health Savlllo asserted
that the complaint was premature. Ho said
that the work of preparing the chutes and
rtinwaytt was being pushed as rapidly as pos
sible , and that In a few days at the most
they \\ould be ready for use. Then the gar-
baKtt would bo dumpu ! out In the river and
thcro would be no further cause for com
In the afternoon Judge Scott and the attor
neys for the opposing sides visited the dump ,
when the Judge bicamu convinced that the
position of the Donrd of Health was correct.
Ho therefore permanently suspended the In
junction. _

Cholera Infuntum is Raging
Lactatcd Food Should Be Fed to
Little Ones ,
August a Critical Time for
livery Mistake in Diet Must He
The death rate ROCS tip with n jump.
There were nlmost hundredcases
a cases of mor
tality due to cholera Infuntuui alone In Ilos-
ton during the lasl week , tuys the Herald of
that city.
One hundred and seventy-five babies died
from this nnil similar cnu.'cs.
The fearful jump In the Infant death rate
that comes In August Is due to Improper feed
ing durlnc hot weather.
In thousands of homc-s where love nnd
watchfulness seem to Imvu Mimnindsd baby
with every safeguard , these two i.on > llllons
that lead to cholera Inf.nit urn oftpn exist
Improper diet and possibility of contagion In
These causes arc preventable , and every
death from an Intestinal dlsoidcr shows ei
ther neglect or Ignorance on the part of par
There Is no reason today why baby should
not receive proper nourishment , and be kept
absolutely free from any possibility of con-
Lactatcd food Is always obtainable. Physi
cians nnd mothers who have brought up a
family of children know how nutritious , liov
easily digested , and how absolutely pure lac
tatetl food Is , nnd how easily It is taken by
children that cannot take other nourishment
Lactatcd food saves babies' lives.
The diet of a child from six months to thre
years old should be as carefully regulated as
In the first weeks of life. And during hot
weather , especially , the first symptom of
diarrhea should cause redoubled watchfulness
Children who are evidently not thriving , who
show a lack of energy , who are becoming
listless , fretful , thin nnd weak , must quickly
gain strength , or the slight attack of diarrhea
that a strong child readily overcomes will
prove fatal.
There Is always a chnnco of slight mis
takes In feeding baby , and In hot weather
such elrors often icsult In cholera infantum ,
In case baby is not strong and abundantly
Dables properly fed on lactate-1 food never
succumb to cholera Infantum.
The experience- hundreds of physicians ,
public Institutions , and thousands of mothers
prove that lactated food Is the safest article
that can be used as the diet of young chil
dren during the hot months.
Mothers who have never used lactated food
should remember that It Is so Inexpensive
as to be within the reach of the humblest
home. Enough meals can be made from n
dollar package to last nearly four weeks.
The food thus prepared from plain directions
on each package costs less than five cents n
quart , and lactated food saves babies' lives.
