AR-SAR-BEN WORK TO BEGIN
Hurtling Committee Will Hold Iu Tint
INITIAL EFFORT FOR THE PARADE FUND
Itttpomr to Postal Card Invitation
to fh,crlbe Sot aa tieaeroa
a, l)rlr4-Poiirl of
Monday. at 12 orlock. from tbe banquet
t BaMufl'i rafe, will go forth the effort
which Is to make thlnrs lively for members
f the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben tblt year.
The bustling committee of the society will
at that Mm hold IU first regular session
and make plans for securing; capital for the
festival and men for the capacious maw of
the den on the nights when the faithful
members of the order gather to count the
men who are- numbered In the kingdom of
the gracious and mighty sovereign of Qui
vers. The first attention of the hustling com
mittee will be turned toward the parade
fund. Treasurer Penfold eettt out a large
number of postal cards a fw weeks ago
calling upon the retail and wholesale deal
ers of the city to signify the amounts of
money they would contribute to the parade
fund this year. The miscarriage of these
postal cards Is something which Is bother
ing the officers of the society, for but few
ot them were delhered to tne persons ad
dressed. At leant this is the opinion of
the secretary of the aoclety, as formed
from the small number of anawers received.
The first work of the hustling committee
will be to recover these cards or to see
that the persons to whom tbey were ad
dressed make response suitable to the mon
arch who has done so much to make Omaha
a pleasant place to visit and a satisfactory
town in which to conduct business.
Enthusiasm Hon, Down.
When the annual supper was given to the
knights at tbe conclusion of the festivities
last year, when the reports of the officers
were submitted, some of the more enthusi
astic merchants of the city made subscrip
tions for larger amounts to the parade fund
than were ever made before, but since that
time men who were expected to contribute
have remained silent, and It Is an open
aeeret that tbe. condition of the parade
fund la not such aa would warrant tne ex
penditure of funds on the ecale which ts
necessary if Omaha Is to maintain Its repu
tation for being In the van of electric street
parades. At the present time Omaha ba
distanced all competitors in this line of
work and It is the hope of the men in
charge of the work that it will alwaya
maintain that position.
Aa Boon as the parade fund Is provided
for the bustling committee will turn Its
efforts upon the uninitiated denlsens of
Omaha and will seek to outdo all previous
records of Ihe number of persons initiated
Into the mysteries which surround the throne
of tbe mighty and excellent ruler of tbe land
of joy and peace.

COSGROVE LOSES HIS SUIT
" Coaatr Clerk Miller Denies that He
Employed PlnlatlfT to
i Watch Ballots.
Domlnick Cesgrove. who sued County
Clerk Harry C. Miller for $42.25 for serr
Icea rendered during the late election con
testa, found out In Justice Long's court Sat
urday afternoon that he had no legal claim
agalnat Miller and will be compelled to
pay the costs In tbe rase. Cosgrove testi
fied that be waa employed by Miller to watch
ver the ballot boxes containing the votes
of the last election and to see that by no
hocus poeus were any of the ballots re
moved or the boxes tampered with. He did
this for alxty long nights, during which
time Miller paid htm $19.75, which Cos
grove claimed was $42.25 ahy of the amount
be earned. The county clerk denied that
he bad employed Cosgrove to watch over
the ballot 'boxes or any other boxes, but
acknowledged that he had given him some
money and at one time a ton of coal. When
these donations were made, Mr. Miller said
he emphatically informed the plaintiff that
he was not giving him money as remunera
tion for labor, but as an act of kindness.
As Cosgrove could not substantiate his
testlmoney, tbe court found for the defend
ant and taxed the coats onto the plaintiff.

FISH FAV0RS INJUNCTIONS

Any Method to Maintain
CHICAGO. April 13. President Fish
of the Illinois Central road has been
watching closely the progress of the gov
ernment In its sttempt to compel the ob
servance of published rates by the medium
of Injunctions, says the Record-Herald.
Mr. Fish is one of the big rsllwsy men who
do not believe that the panacea for rate
ilia lies In legalized pooling.
negardlng the Injunction method, tti.
Record-Herald quotes Mr. Fish as ssylng:
The railroad managements of this coun
try, without an exception, I believe, will
hnll with delight any method which proves
effective In maintaining rates. Heretofore
everything which har been tried has been
more or Ins a failure and we are all hon
ing the remedy has at last been discovered.
As to thi- rlaht ot the aovernmrnt to pro
ceed by injunction, 1 cannot sprsk. Iegal
authorities s-em to differ on the subject,
nut ir oun ngm aoes exist ana tne In
junction proves n effective measure, the

wlmt they have long been seeking.
il is too eanv to express sn omn on con.
cernlng the efficiency of the measure, and
rurthTmore the rtjrnt or the government
to employ the injunction In this way has
not been determined. 1 believe, however,
that the rate eltnatlon Is now better
throughout the country than it has been
for y-urs and J presume this excellent
condition is the result of a wholesale fear
of the court's mandate.

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Proposition for Issue of Fifty Thousand
Dollar! of Bonds.
DESIGN TO PAY OFF ENTIRE OVERLAP
C'oaaell Mar Levy Oernpatlon Taa to
Clean Ip Indebtedness If Bond
Issue I Fonnd Impraetl
eable. It Is understood that as soon as the city
council Is orgsnlzed snd the administration
is running along smoothly, a proposi
tion will be brought up for tbe Issuing ot
genersl Indebtedness bonds In the sum of
$50,000. This proposition, will ef course,
have to be submitted to the vote ot the peo
ple. This overlap hss been accumulating
for years and the plan has been in tbe
past to pay overdue warrants out of each
year's levy. Thea when this was done the
funds were depleted early In the fall and
a new overlap was in evidence early each
It Is asserted now that If bonds are Is
ued to take up the entire overlap tbe levy
for 1902 ran be used to advantage and that
with economy the overlap will not be In
creased. One cause of the overlap, which
has been growing for yesrs, baa been ex
travagant management and another Is the
fact that the growth of the city baa been so
rspld that an Increase In the fire and police
departments was an absolute necessity.
Bend dealers say that the bonds of the
proposed Issue ran be floated for H per
cent, but will bring ne premium. While
on the other hand. If the Issue Is made
for twenty years straight at 6 per cent, a
premium ot about $3,000 can be secured.
A great msay property owners now sesm
to think that In order to decrease the levy
tbe Issue of bonds to take care ot the
overlap is the best thing that can be done
at this time.
Should It be found inadvisable to issue
these bonds It is certain that an occupation
tax will be levied in order to clean up the
Indebtedness. It is figured that each liquor
dealer can he forced to pay an occupation
tax of $200, and other bualaess houses In
proportion. Tbls occupation tax scheme has
been tried here several times, but has never
been a success on account of the refusal of
merchants to settle. While tbe saloon men
would pay up, merchanta who continually
complain about tbe high levy would decline
to pay, and thus after a certain class were
bled the matter would be dropped. Some
of the members of the present council are
known to favor a general occupation tax
In order to raise funds for the payment of
the overlap, and thus avoid the necessity
for Increasing the general bonded Indebted
ness of the city, which now amounts to
City Financier Proposition.
"This talk about tbe city ot South Omaha
employing a man to act aa city financier
Is all bosh," said a member of the council
to a Bee reporter yesterday. "Those who
are behind such a movement must have a
great opinion of the mental caliber of the
new council. I guess we can get along
without a financier for some little time to
come. I understand that a former mem
ber of the council is hustling for the place
and has been the means of starting the
agitation for his appointment in a couple
of uptown aheeta. You can safely say that
the present city council will attend to the
affairs of the city without the assistance
of any of Its former members."

PENSION FOR MRS. M'KINLEY
Five Thonannd Dollar a sear Appro
priated to Widow of I.ate
WASHINGTON. April Is. The house
psssed the bill granting a pension to the
widow of President McKlnley at $5,000 per
The bill had previously psssed the senate
and now goes to tbe president for sig
nature. Although fsvorsble action on the
measure was unanimous, aa Inquiry by Mr.
Bell of Colorado, as to the precedents tor
such action led to animated discussion.
Mr. Bell contended tbat many widows ot
poor . soldiers were without pensions, and
that Mrs. McKlnley had Independent means.
making a pension unnecessary.
Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio severely criticised
Mr. Bell's position. Mr. Rlcbsrdson of
Tennessee, snd several other democratic
members, spoke for tbe bill as In line ot
precedent. Mr. Kleeberg of Texss, an ex-
confederate soldier, supporting It on the
ground that President McKlnley bad wiped
out tbe last vestige of sectionalism.
Mr. Gaines of Tennessee, asked why the
precedent was not observed In the rase of
Mr. Grosvenor said Mrs. Harrison had
been consulted, and action would doubtless
be taken. He pointed out, however, that
the cases were quite different.
Mr. Bell explained that he had made no
objection to the pension. He merely called
attention to a lack of pensions for many
widows of humble soldiers, this amount
being sufficient to give an $S pension to
Mr. Richardson of Tennessee, said he had
seen granted several pensions to the widows
of presidents. The custom had stood from
time immemorial. It this was the first
case it might be desirable to stop and in
quire as to the need. But as this was a
time-honored precedent, Mr. Richardson de
clared he would be the laat to break the
precedent in the rase of William McKlnley.
Mr. Richardson announced himself emphati
cally In favor of the bill.
Mr. Kleeberg of Texas, declared that if
no other reason this pension should be
passed because President McKlnley wiped
out the last vestige of sectionalism. As
one who had "worn the gray" Mr. Kleeberg
said be Joined In this act of justice to the
widow of one who bad "worn the blue." ,
A vote was then tsken on ordering the
bill to favorable report and without a dis
senting voice action was taken, which was
equivalent to passage of the hill. The cal
endar was entirely cleared of private pen

by tbe house, 177 In all, and Including that

FIRST MOVE AGAINST STATE
Hill's Attorney Serve KotK-e to Vacate
Service In Minnesota Sum
mon and Complaint.
ST. FAUL, Minn., April 13. The first
move of the varied Interests concerned in
the railway merger aa against tbe suit
instituted by the state of Minnesota In
the Ramsey district court has been tsken
by President Hill's attorneys.
Tbey have served notice, upon Attorney
General Douglas, of a motion to vacate
service In Ihe summons and complaint of
the state of Minnesota agnlnst the North
ern Securities company and against Presi
dent J. J. Hill of that corporation and ot
the Great Northern road.
The motion will come before the Ram
sey district court for argument one week
from today. It will be heard at special
term of court. Just which one of the
members of the Ramsey bench will pre
side has not yet been determined.
The motion of the railways will be based
on the claim tbat tbe Northern Securities
company la a New Jersey corporation, and
as such Is outside the jurisdiction of the
Minnesota court. It will also be argued
tbat James J. Hill's residence In this state
Is merely personal, and aa such he Is not
amenable to the laws In the rase, as he
would be under normal conditions.
The srgument on next Saturday will not
affect the main question, as stated In tbe
bill complaint filed by tbe attorney gen
eral. Still Keep It I p.
"During a period of poor health some
time ago I got a trial bottle of DeWltt's
Little Early Risers," says Justice of the
Peace Adam Shook ot New Lisbon, Ind.
"I took them and they did me so much
good I have used them ever rlnce." Safe,
reliable and gentle, DeWltt's Little Early
Risers neither gripe nor distress, but
stimulate the liver and promote regular
and easy action of tbe bowela.
