TALK OF ERECTING EXCHANGE BUILDING
City Attorney Redraft lag; Ordinance
Requiring- Other 'Wires Placed
la toaaalt aad Will Be
Ready la Febraary.
It was announced yesterday that the Ne
braska Telephone company would begin
work In the spring, as soon as the weather
conditions permitted, to place Its wires
In underground conduits within the dis
trict prescribed by the recently passed or
dinance. Thla work will Involve. It Is
estimated, an outlay of about $75,000, and
will give employment for many months to
a large number of men. There Is some
talk of the company adding to this' ex
penditure by the construction of a building
for Its telephone exchange. The present
Quarters occupied by the company are said
to be Inadequate and "unsuitable to the
Increasing business caused by the growth
of the city;
The location of the exchange has not
yet been determined upon, but It is voder
stood that It will be In the center of the
business part of the city and within a
block or two of the present headquarters.
It la said the company Is prepared to ex
pend $25,000 to $30,000 , on lta proposed
building for a centrat telephone exchange.
Business men generally Indorse the ac
tion of the city council In passing the
conduit ordinance and favor the passage
of the other ordinance with similar re
quirements for all telegraph, electric light
and other wires within the prescribed dis
trict, so as to relieve the streets of the
unsightly poles and the accompanying net- ,
work of wires. -
Mayor Morgan 1a expected home from
Oregon tomorrow,- when it Is thought ho
will at once attach his official signature
to the ordinance. In view of the fact that
upward of 150 of the leading business and
professional men of the city signed the
petition urging the passage of the meas
ure, it Is not deemed likely that the mayor
will hesitate In signing It.
City Solicitor Snyder Is at present en
gaged In redrafting the other ordinance,,
which will include telegraph, electric light
and the feed wires of the motor company,
and expeeta to have It In ahape to present
to the city council at Its meeting In Feb

At a meeting of the Iowa Railway club
In this city at which waa gathered a large
number of the leading railway superintend
ents and others, it was -made known that
after the first of next month the railroad
companies crossing Iowa are going to aban
don the effort to beat each other with fast
stock trains from Missouri river points and
beyond. The railroad managers have
reached the conclusion that such competi
tion as they havo been Indulging In for
several years Is too expensive and the
damage to track and rolling stock by rea
son of the faat time made by stock trains
more than counterbalances all benefits de
rived. The schedules will all be revlacd
and the time lengthened. At the same
time the fast trains for freight from Chi
cago westward will be abandoned and
longer hours be allowed for the tranbpor
tation of all freight.

BOMBARDMENT IS RENEWED
German Orurert Open Fire Again on San
WEDNESDAY'S BATTLE IS CONTINUED
Twelve Trnesoelaa Killed on First
Day, Fortlnratlon Damaged aad
(inns Dlamoaated la plte of
MARACAIBO, Jan. 2i The bombard
ment of Fort San Carlos by the German
cruisers Vlnets, Panther and Falke was
continued yeslerdsy afternoon until S
It was resumed this morning at day
break. The first shells were hurled at the fort
at 4 o'clock at long range. At Panther,
belag ot light draught, closed In and again
became actively engaged. The fort re
plied. At 8. the engagement was proceed
ing aa fiercely aa yeaterday.
Twelve dead and fifteen badly wounded
Venexuelana were counted In the fort at 7
last night. The result of today's bom
bardment Is not yet known.
Report First Day's Flarht.
Panlhcr left its position close to Fort
San Carlos, which It took up earlier In
the day, yesterday afternoon at i. and
Joined Falke, halt a mllo outside the har
bor and about five miles from the fort.
At 3 the corrhBpondcut of the Associated
Press, It, a rowboat, approached one sldo
of the fort, out of range, and witnessed
tho long range fire of the German cruisers,
which i was continued from 3 till 6. Vineta
and Falke were close together and nearer
the fort than Panther.
The first two vessels, at a range of four
and a half miles, poured In a continuous
rain ofshell and only stopped firing when
It became dark. At this hour the German
vessels retired seaward, after having made
two Ineffectual attempts to land troops In
the village of San Carlos, situated at the
base of the fort.
At 7 on Wednesday evening the corre
spondent, who was accompanied by a gov
ernment telegrapher bearing a telegram
from President Castro to the commandant
of San' Carlos, landed on the Island and
entered the fort. The walls were terribly
battered and there were many evidence
of the fierce engagement. Twelve dead
Venetuelan soldiers were counted behind
the ramparts and fifteen other men, se
rlouslr wounded, were lying on a low plat
form. The fort was literally covered with
pieces of broken shells, though many ot
the German shells had not exploded.
The magazine bad a harrow escape, two
shells having come within an aca of pene
trating It. '
It It estimated by the commandant, Gen.
eral Bello, that the German ships fired
more than 1,600 shells.
Although the damage Inflicted by the
sustained Ore of the German cruisers Is
great, it It not at that would be expected
from tuch a continuous fire from modern
high power guns.
The village of San Carlos suffered
greatly. - The aim of the German gunuera
appeared to have been Inaccurate, for mora
than 60 per cent of their shells exploded
In the village before reaching the fort.
The cannon mounted at San Carlos had
not sufficient range to reach Falke and
Vineta, ao tho fire from these vessels wat
not returned. Vineta and Falke draw too
much water to cross the bar. Panther
alone could do so, and this explains why
it wat tbo only one to come In close to
the fort.. ...
8ome of the artillery on the fort has
been destroyed by the German fire, but
there are still five guns that can be fired.
General Bello hat shewn great bravery
and It In no way Intimidated. He will not
abandon the fort,' but will resist as long
at It It possible for blm to do so. He
tweara that on January 17, the occaalon of
the first bombardment. Panther fired upon

CARACAS. Jan. 22. The German bom

Th cablegram doea not Indicate the re

be significant of the gravity with whlen tie
view the situation.
There la no longer any talk of exerting
friendly Influences to prevent the bom
bardments, but It Is difficult for the depart
ment to answer congressional caller who
are seeking for a reesonable explanation.
An annoying feature of the situation It th
probability that there may be t serious
Interference with Minister Bowen'l mis
sion. In which the Vnlted States, though
not oQclally concerned, Is deeply Inter
ested. There were msny rumort afloat to fh
effect that the State department had taken
steps to point out to th foreign offices at
London, Berlin snd Rome Its view on this
subject, but this could no.t be confirmed
today. It was stated that at present th
attitude of the Vnlted States must be on
of pstlent waiting. Secretary Hay still
remains at hit home nursing a cold. Such
business aa Mr. Bowen has to do with blm
Is transacted at his house. The minister
was up at an early hour this morning
tnd disappeared from his hotel, to It waa
said, as rarda were refused save to th
German' charge. Count Quadt. who returned
unexpectedly from New York last night.
He had been awaiting the arrival from
Europe of hla family.
So It Is a fair proposition that, his sud
den return to Washington, without meet
ing them, wat brought about by the un
toward turn In Venezuelan affairs.
Allied Diplomat Confer.
Count Quadt also had a long conference
at the British embassy with Sir Michael
Herbert, and he also paid a call at the
Italian embassy, where the ambassador,
who Is suffering from a slight Indisposi
tion, was unable to see him.
It waa stated that nothing in the naturt
of an answer to Minister Bowen's proposi
tion for a removal of tbe blockade, as a
condition precedent to negotiations, had
been received from any of the European
foreign offices, although it la admitted that
there Is a free exchange of notes In prog

Later Mr. Bowen appeared at the 61 ate
department and had a short talk with Dr.
Hill and with Third Assistant Secretary
Pierce. He la making a number ot teml
offlclal calls on the foreign embasslet and
legations, other than tbo allies, and It It
believed that thla it In pursuance ot hla
general ejluty of adjusting any proper claims
they nisy have against Venezuela.
It la the underatandlng that none of the
countries which refrained from Joining In
the blockade will be permitted to suffer by
Venezuela In consequence ot forbearance,
but citizens who have suffered at a result
ot a Venezuelan revolutionary movement
will, when it comes to a aetMement of
claims, be placed upon an equality with
claimants from England, Germany and
ROME, Jan. 22. The second bombard
ment on San Carlot by the German war
ships haa produced an unfavorable Impres
sion here, as tbe necessity for a recourse
to violence Is considered to have passed.
Government officials are most cautloua In
expressing opinions of the matter. In view
of tbe peculiar situation of Italy, that coun
try being allied with Germany Independ
ently of the Venezuelan affair.
Officials, however, say frankly that Italy
will continue Its efforts toward concilia
tion as It hat no resentment toward Vene
zuela and Is seeking only to obtain the
payment of Its .claims.
Up to a late hour this evening the For
eign office had received no representation
from Washington regarding the bombard
ment. FALLING HAIR
