AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Park Board Notifies Csnnc.il that it Claimi
the Road Fond.
.'SEQUEL TO LEVY FOR PARK PURPOSES
Report that F.iprfM Companies Will
Retail to Fa? Tun oa Franchises
ail Storks aa Assessed by
Testerdsy Msyor Koutsky filed with the
elty clerk a letter received from William
Msberry. secretsrr of the South Onfaha
park board. This letter says that at a
meeting held on January 19 the following
retolutlon wan adopted:
Resolved, That the road fund derived
from the levy made hy the county commis
sioners for the years 1W9 up to and In
cluding 1!'2 belong to the park fjnd and
that any diversion of thin fund will not be
recognised by the bonrd.
This action Is In line with a threat made
to the city council laat July hy James H.
Van Dusen, one of the members of the
, park board. At the time the question of
the. amount of the levy came .up Mr. Van
Dusen addressed the council and aeked for
an Increase. In making up the sheet the
I council had appropriated $500 for park pur
I poses, aa It was reported that there was a
balance In the park fund. The Idea was
to ketp the levy aa low as possible. Van
"Dusen talked for some time, but could not
'. convince the council that more money
waa '. needed. The levy ordinance was
psseed with an appropriation of only $500
fof pafk purposes. Mr. Van Dusen left
the chamber, saying that he would see to
It that, the city .turned over to the park
ttoard the amount of the road fund. He
asserted that under the law the park
board was entitled to this money and It
could he recovered by action at law.
Now comes a notice written by the sec
retary of the board ahowlng that the res
clutlon noted above waa adopted. The
communication will be. read some of these
time when the council meets and It prob
ably will b referred to a committee for a
report .or It may be pi area on nie. i no
disposition of the communication depends
entirely upon how the mayor feels when
the paper Is read.
For years past the city has received a
cortlon of the county road fund. The
mount received varies according to the
amount of taxes paid in on this fund.
When a sum of money accumulatea the
city treasurer la notified and he goes to
Omaha and obtains a check for the por
tion of the fund due South Omaha. Some
jeans It Is $3,000 and then again It Is more
Whan the matter was brought to the at
tention, of the city authorities yesterday
the general impression waa that If the
park board wanted to obtain this money,
especially the money that had been secured
and already expended for street repairs. It
would have to bring ault. . ,
When shown the communication from
the park board one member of the council
who Is well posted on city affairs aatd that
the present mayor and council wou'd not be
bluffed hy Mr. Van Dusen or any other
member of the park board, and that only
decision of the courts would compel the
city to disgorge the money already re
cebred and spent. The park board la now
composed of John F. Scbults, W. J. Mc
Crann, J. H. Van Dusen, William Maberry
nd C. M. Hunt.
The opinion la freely expressed that the
park board wants to establish boulevards
nd go to expense entirely beyond the
means of the city.
Eipreas Cosnpamlea Balk.
It waa stated yeiterdsy that the express
companies doing business In South Omaha
would refuse to pay taxea on the valuation
of franchises and stock as returned by the
city tax commissioner. While the atten
tlon of the city authorities haa not been
called to this matter yet. It la presumed
that since the fact has been made public
ome steps will be taken by the city treas
ttrer to collect this tax. . The express com-
panics assert that they are doing an Inter
state business and for that reason no mu
nicipality haa right to. assess franchise.

WASHINGTON', Feb. 7. The conferees
on the Department of Commerce bill have
reached an agreement. The contention of
the senate in the most Important matters
have been acceded to by the house con
ferees, which leaves the Interstate Com
merce commission a sepsrate organisation.
All reference to the Interstate Commerce
commission is eliminated and the statis
tical bureaus to be transferred are speci
fied as being confined to the War depart
ment, tbe Navy department and tbe De
partment of Justice.
Trevious to the meeting of the sen
ate Senator Clay asked the democratic
members to meet him for an informal dis
cussion of the deadlock over the dispo

Senator Nelson suggested the provision
specifically mentioning the statistical bu

the first of the bouse conferees to yield and
soon afterward the other members came
over and the work of creating the new ex

Mtrmoa Antl-Polyasmy Revelav
WAPHINOTON, Feb. ".The statehood
bill again today claimed the greater shsre
f the senate's attention. Mr. Kesn (N. J.)
continued, but did not conclude his speech.
nd toward the close of the day there was
general debate on the necessity of In
serting safeguards against polygamy.
A large number of bills to which there
was no objection were passed.
Senstor Gslllnger (N. H.) presented a
partial report of the conference on the
bill Increasing pensions to ex-soldiers who
had lost limbs. He stated thnt the house
sd changed the rates materially. The re
port was adopted and further conference
Mr. Morgan (Ala.) again called up his
resolution calling for papers concerning the
movements and correspondence of naval
officers in Colombian waters.
Mr. Hale's (Me.) motion to refer this
resolution to the committee on naval affairs
prevailed by a strictly party vote of 31
to 18. The resolution was therefore re
ferred snd when Mr. Morgan complained
that it would not be acted upon by the
committee Mr. Hale replied that It would
ot be favorably reported In Its present
form with his consent.
The senate then passed the following
bills: Authorizing the promotion of Major
William Crawford Gorgas, surgeon In the
United States army; for the relief of Cap
tain Joseph D. 81ms ot the United States
revenue cutter service; providing for the
holding of circuit and district court of the
United States at Kansas City. Kan.; giv
ing pensions of $75 each to the widows of
Generals Slgel and Negley; for the pro
tection of tbe public forest reserve and
national parks of the United States.
Mr. Kean then resumed tbe statehood
debate and read a book of travel by a
German author to show tbat polygamy still
existed in tbe Mormon church in the re
public of Mexico. This fact was after
ward commented upon by Messrs. Bever
ldge (Ind.), Spooner (Wis.) and Depew
(N. Y.) as proving the contention that
polygamy had not been abolished.
Mr. Spooner asked Mr. Rawlins (Utah)
whether tbe revelation for abolition bad
covered Mexico. Mr. Rawlins referred htm
to the documents, saying he did not care
to put any construction on them, but Mr,
Hoar (Mass.) remarked that "possibly the
revelator had not been able to speak
Mr. Rawlins addd later that aa he re
called President Snow's proclamation for
bidding polygamy It had covered ths Mor
mon church throughout the world.
Mr. Depew read the proclamation to ahow
Jhat polygamy had only been "suspended,'
and not prohibited. He thought another
revelation from the Mormon church should
Mr. Bscon (Oa.): "If the senator wants
an authoritative statement In tbe senate
on the subject, he may have all bis doubts
removed next session, when the new sens
tor from Utah takes hia seat."
That," replied Mr. Depew. "Is tbe only
argument that I have heard for tbe admis
sion of a Mormon to tbe senate."
Mr. Teller (Colo.) expressed the opinion
that, notwithstanding the book quoted, po
lygamy did not exist among Mormons in
Mexico. He did not believe tbe people or
the priests of that country would tolerate
However, It was his opinion tbat polyg-
amy was entirely foreign to the subject ot
Mr. Spooner took Issue with him, and
urged the Importance of the matter.
With me It Is no trifling matter, no
question of delay, and when we are told
here that the Mormon church controls the
elections in a state now In the union, we
must admit that that state was not prs-
pared for admission
Replying, .Mr. Teller contended that the
few Mormons In Arizona would not be cap
able ot controlling elections there. So
small a consideration should not stand in
the way of promise made in the treaty
ot Guadaloupe, Hidalgo, to admit as states
the territory acquired from Mexico.
The senate then went Into executive les
slon, and at 4:50 adjourned. .
