NO DISCRIMINATION AGAINST CITY
At Meeting; at Omaha Clan -Great
Western President Aanonnee
Proportional Grain Rates
President Wattle of the Grain exchange
announced yesterday afternoon that Presi
dent Stickney of the Chicago Great West-
ernn In his address delivered to the mem
bers of the executive committee of the ex
change at the meeting held at the Omaha
club, had outlined a plan of ratea on grain
ta the northern markets which was per
fectly satisfactory to the member of the
Mr. Wattle said that the rate which will
be Sr. effect, under the new tariff, to be
Issued by the Great Western about De
cember 10, will quote proportional rate of
cents on wheat and 8 cents on corn from
the larger part of Nebraska and from the
rest of the state the rate will be 14 cents
on, wheat and 13 cent on corn. To the
Mississippi river the rate will be Hie same
a to Minneapolis, and to Chicago, 14 cent
on wheat and 13 cent on corn. The only
loss which this city will sustain In rates
under the new tariff wilt be In the territory
which I tributary to Kansas City, and In
this territory the higher rate will apply,
It I supposed that President Stickney has
been forced to make this concession to
Kansas City on account of his large In
terests there and the fight put up by ".he
grain men of that city.
At present the rates on all grain which
nay pass through this city are $ cent on
vheat and 8 cents on corn, no matter from
-what point it may come, but under the
new tariff the territory from which grain
taking the lower rates may come I desig
nated, and In extent it I about two-third
of the northern part of the state. A grain
man stated last night that considering the
strong fight put up by the grain Interest
of Kansas City, thts was as great a con
cession from President Btlckney a could
be expected by the people of Omaha, con
equently all concerned are pleased. ,
Wattles Win Victory.
President Stickney and Mr. Stickney
cams In yesterday morning from St. Paul
and went directly to tha Her Grand hotel,
Shortly after their arrival President Wat
tle of the Grain exchange met Mr. Stick
ney In his room there and the two men
pent the forenoon in dlscuslng the Omaha
grain rate situation. It 1 presumed that
hey arrived at the agreement a outlined
by President Stickney In hi addre to the
committee. Considering the stand taken a
few day ago by Traffic Manager Stobr of
the Great Western la hi telegram to
various parties In this city concerning the
northern grain rat restorations, it Is gen
erally considered that President Wattle ha
won a great victory for Omaha In securing
so favoraable a proposition from air. Stick
At the meeting of the executive commit
tee of the exchange It wa decided to call
for payment of membership fee In the
Grain exchange on or before January 1, Jt
wa further decided that each member
shall pay at least one-half of his member
ship fee, amounting to 8500. In cash and a
not can tie given for the other half payable
in one year.
A permanent secretary wa chosen for
the association, but hi name wa not mad
publto last night for the reason that the
committee desire to wait upon him and
secure his consent to accept the position be-
fore the name i given out. It 1 thought
barely possible that he may not accept,
The statement wa mad that the man ae-
lected has not been an applicant for the
position and wa chosen upon his known
President Stickney wa seen after the
meetlng, but stated that he Had not a word
to say regarding his plana for the future In
Omaha, or In fact on any other aubject con
nected with the future policy of hi tine. He
will remain In Omaha two or three day
and while her will look Into the question
of terminal facilities for hi line In this city,
It la understood that President Stickney'
visit to this city waa in response to an In
vitation Issued oy the member of th ex
ecutive committee of the Grain exchange.
and that the Invitation wa issued because
of the conflicting report which have been
current during tha last few-days aa to the
stand th Great Western Intended taking in
the northern grain rat question. It was
the desire of the committee to know ex-
actly how Mr. Stickney stood regarding his
question before pcoceedlng further with the
business of the exchange, a th future
policy of the organisation necessarily de-
pended a great deal on what Mr. Stickney'
tin Intended doing.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 8-Thc senate com
mittee on military s flairs today resumed
Its hearing In connection with chargea filed
against General Leonard Wood In opposi
tion to his confirmation to Iks major gen
eral. The first witness was Melville E. Btone,
general manager of the Associated Press.
Mr. Stone was questioned concerning the
report that General Wood had aought to
retain E. U. Bellalrs as the representative
of the Associated Press at Havana. He
submitted a letter written by Major Runcle
to Colonel Charle 8. Dlehl, assistant gen
eral manager of the Associated Press.
which requested In behalf of General Wood
the retention of Bellalrs, saying It wa
important to have a man representing the
Associated Pres at Havana who was In
the confidence of the military governor.
Mr. Btone said the matter was then under
charge of Colonel Dlehl. Bellalrs waa re
tained, but hi previous record was not
known to the officers of the Associated
Press. When It became known Bellalrs was
discharged. Mr. Stone also was uxked a
to what knowledge General Wood had of
Bellalrs' record, but upon this point be
could give the committee little In forma
tlon. It wa decided that Colonel Dlebl
should be subpoenaed.
Magaalae Writer Testifies.
Ray Stannard Buker, the man who,
Major Runcle said, was at the dinner with
General Wood and himself when the pro-
posed magazine article criticising General I
,,,. ,. At-r,,.umA was the next wit-
Mr Raker confirmed some Darts of the I
testimony of Major Runcle and contradicted
' ' ... I
or qualified other portions of It. lie aeniea
that there had been any consultation be- 1
, ,im.if nrt nenerat Wood relative
to the publication of Major Runcle's article
reflecting upon the administration of Gen
eral Brooke. He said, however, that he
had talked with General Wood regarding
an article which was subsequently pub
lished over his own signature.
When arfked whether he had conversed
with the president relative to the Wood
case he replied In the negative and also
made the same reply to a question as to
whether he had conferred with War depart
ment officials concerning the article which
was published over the signature of Major
Runcle. Mr. Baker said that It had been j
given htm by Runcle, but so far as he
knew General Wood had no knowledge of
It previous to lta publication. He said be
had taken dinner with General Wood and
Major Runcie several time at Santiago,
but that the publication of an article at
tacking General Brooke had never been
the subject of conversation.
Mr. Baker was questioned closely by Sen
ator Scott of the committee and Senator
Hanna and Teller, who were present. They
quoted Major Runcle's letter to Baker sug
gesting that the time was opportune for
the publication of the Runcle article In
General Wood' Interest and asked him If
the letter did not show that there had been
conferences on the subject and a perfect
understanding. Mr. Baker admitted ap-
pearances would ,lead to that Inferenee, but
Insisted that there had not been any under
Dlaenas Brooke's Administration.
Mr. Paker admitted that he and Wood
and Runcle had discussed General Brooke's
administration of Cuban affairs, but said
the discussion had been Impersonal and
that Brooke' name had not been men
tioned. He also said that Orneral Wood
had Introduced him to Runcle when he
first went to Cuba,.
At tne arternoon session or the com
mittee the only witness heard was Dr.
Pablo Desvernenle, who was secretary of
finance under the administration of Gen
eral Brooke, as governor general, and
later attorney for Major Rath bone. Dr.
Desvernenle testified later as to the In
structions given to the court by General
Wood. He testified that Wood had changed
the law of Cuba tn order to admit ex
parte evidence In the postal cases. The
modification of the principles of Cuban
criminal law, which was said to be detri
mental to the Interests of Major Rathbone,
Dr. Desvernenle claimed, was an order
Issued by General Wood, April 30, 1900.
The effect of the order, said the witness.
wa to revert to law In force under the
regime of colonial Spain, thirty year be
fore. According to the testimony of Dr.
uesvernenie, the order were Issued to
the Judge of instruction, whom Wood could
remove at pleasure.
Jadges Removed by Wood.
A an Illustration of the power of Gen
eral Wood, the witness said that General
Wood in on case removed a Judne of
I first Instance in one of the high court
and also three of the associate Judges of
one section of the court. A a cause of re
moval it was said that the Judges had
not complied with the laws as modified
by General Wood.
The removal, said the witness, was msde
I over the protest of the Bar association, a
I corporation having specific official power.
I The association declared the removals un-
I warranted and in consolation or to appease
I Us anger General Wood appointed the de-
posed Judges to position of trust In the
I Bar association.
I Df- Desvernenle declared that under the
I law tn force at the time Oeneral Wood be-
I cam governor general ex parte evidence
I was not admissible In trials, but that Oen-
I erlll Wood had made the amendment which
(abrogated statute and amended a new
law, and said this opened the door to ex
Another churge made by Dr: Desver
nenle, that when the Judges In the postal
case were not named by General Wood
In the order creating the courts, that
Rathbone' counsel never understood that
ex parte evidence wa to be admitted in
trials, and that General Wood construc
tion even of hi amended law wa in con
travention of existing statutes. The wit
ness declared that General Wood' order
to the judge of firat Instance had the ef
fect of controlling Judicial action and made
Oeneral Wood the court of last appeal to
I himself. The witness also asserted that the
I bond In the Rathbone case was exceslve
I and unwarranted by law. The committee
1 adjourned to meet again next Monday.

dent of the National Congress of Mothers.
Half n doaen other national organisations
were represented at the meeting.
Mrs. Lucia Blount was elected president

A committee from the meeting called
by appointment on the president. They
Included Mrs. SchofT, Mrs. Darwin James,
president of the Interdenominational
Council of Women; Mrs. Tennis Hamlin,
vice president of the Woman' Home Mis

James. Mrs. Margaret Dye Ellis, Charles
M. Owen of the Utuh-Amerlcan Bureau
of Education, nnd Mrs. Tennis Hamlin. Dr,
McMillan laid that Senator Smoot's ex
pulsion was not desired beoause he was a
Mormon, but because he was an aoostlo
In the Mormon church and had taken
vows and oaths which conflicted with
those of the United State. Mrs. Hamlin
said the objection to the retention to his
seat by Senator Smoot was the union of
church and state. The presence of the
private secretary to Senator Smoot and
his wife at the meeting caused some com

Movements of Asiatic Fleet.
fceoetary Moody ijas received a cable
message from ReHr Admiral Evans, com
manding thp Asiatic station, saying that
the New Orleans, Albany, Cincinnati, Ra
leigh and Pompeii sailed from .Yokohama
today for Honolulu and that the battleship
squadron will follow In a day or two. It
wss expected that the entire fleet would
have, started on this pructlce cruise De.
cember l and the delay In getting off. is
attributed at the Navy department -to the
difficulty of coaling, probubly due to the
prevalence of a storm.
In a cablegram to Admiral Evans to
day he was directed to return with his
fleets to Yokohama -as soon as Honolulu
ha been visited. It was explained at the
bureau of navigation that this Is in ac
cordance with the original program, al
though Admiral Evan had not up to today
been given orders concerning his fleet after
It reached Honolulu.
Deslrljjg to make the best disposition of
his colliers. Admiral Evan wired for or
ders with the result that the cablegram
referred was sent. This order Is construed
as an Indication that the Navy department
has no purpose of using the vessels of
the Asiatic fleet In forcing It policy for
the construction of the Panama canal.
