without foundation.

Councilman O'Brien and his lighting com

burn gas through a Welsbach burner yes
terday afternoon and learned much about
the business they never knew before. A
further tost Is to be made beginning with
tonight, after the session of the council.
With only a short test Inspector Lynch
found that the regular city light through
the Welsbach burner consumed almost six
feet of gas an hour or about what the
company claimed it consumed. With the
check burner a twenty-three-candle power
light consumed almost six fret or about
the same as the Welsbach, though there
was no comparison in the lights, the Wels
bach being much brighter. Putting on
a regular pillar and removing the check
burner the gas consumed amounted to
fourteen feet an hour, with the light no
It is the use of the ordinary pillar in
stead of the check burner, the councilman
concluded, that causes gas bills In private
families to be so high each month, and at
the same time have no better light. They
advocated Issuing pamphlets on gas bur
ners to be distributed throughout the city.

The unanimous verdict of the thousands
of people who attended the Woodmen of the
World carnival at Courtland Beach Sunday
was that the spiral act of Phil D. Ureen
was the greatest act they had ever wit
nessed and that the pyrotechnical display
in this and Harry Du Bell's act of riding a
live wire are simply magnificent and must
be seen to be appreciated.
That tho Russian Prince Nlcholl, the
Browning King theater entertainers, the
glass blowers, shows on the Pike, are the
best ever snd that the Old Plantation pays
you well for a visit.
That dancing in the cool pavilion each
evening Is Just simply Immense after the
sultry heat of the day.
On account of the elaborate preparation
of the electric display these acts did not
take place until 10:30 p. m., but will be pre
sented at and 10 SO p. tn. each evening

These arc the five recommendations that
will be made to the annual convention of
the Amerlcari Bar association at Narragan
sttt Pier August 23-4-5, by Its committee,
on Insurance. Rafph W. Kreckenrldge of
Omaha is chairman of this Important com
mittee and as such has drawn up the re
port. It Is expected that action on this reeort
by the bar association will have a de
cided effect on. the action to be taken later
by the congress. A great many of ihe
members of congress are alsi members of
the American Bar association, and natur
ally they will be Interested In any recom

Towanda, Pa.; W. A. Hcmenway of Bos

to the bar association this year, and W.

Minority Report by Vance.
Mr. Vance is expected to offer a minority
report In which he will disagree with the
committee, not on the general findings, but
on the proposition that there is no consti
tutional obstacle existing to the Inaugura
tion of federal supervision of the Insur
ance business. Mr. Vance believes It
would require an amendment to the na
tional constitution to permit of the gov
ernment taking over control of the busi
ness. The report at the outset makes note of
the fact that the amount of Insurance of
all kinds in force in the United States
approximates J50.000.1W,000 and that the ag
gregate assets of the companies approxi
mates 13,000.000,000. The American people
pay annually for Insurance of all kinds.

Roosevelt Favors Plan.
President Rooseveelt Is quoted as having
said to the committee that he is very much
In favor of federal supervision of insur
ance, and his utterance on the subject In
his message to congress of December 6,
1904, Is quoted at length.
Of the sentiment of the insurance com
panies themselves with regard to the
widest publicity for their affairs, the re
port says:
Publicity as related to corporations that
have or seek either public franchises or
public favor means more than a newspa
per adertlsement of an Unsworn statement
of assets and liabilities?. It means that
each company must ahow to that depart
ment of government, state or federal, in
vested with power In that regard. What It
Is doing with the monev' It receives; that
Its affairs are conducted' hiSnestly and eco
nomically, and that its business Is oper
ated upon a plan which experience lias
shown will enable it to arroni me proiec
tion it offers to its policyholders.
After an Introduction to the subject cf
federal supervision and the question of Us
desirability, the report says:
The officials of the leading companies
life, fire and accident rccognlne the steady
growth of the sentiment In favor of na
tional supervision, and they generally favor
It If thereliy the forty-nine state depart
ments to which they now must make re
turns will be superseded. The leading
state Insurance commissioners are also In
favor of federal supervision.
No one has offered any substantial reason
against federal supervision and It Is advo
cated by the president of the fnlted States,
many state Insurance commissioners, fa
vored by leading Insurance officials and
numerous able Insurance Journals. Besides
these, the general press Is In favor of any
movement In the direction of greater cor
porate publicity, and the patrons of Insur
ance the people favor federal supervision
of the business, as the national bunks are
State Plan Is Denonneed.
The rece'.rt by state Insurance depart
ments of several millions yearly In excess
of what supervision costs Is denounced as
Iniquitous and the report says the expense
of federal supervision would not be over
10 per cent of what state supervision now
costs, thus lifting "an unnecessary burden
from all who seek to provide for their fam
ilies and to avert disaster from fire through
Discussing the matter of taxation, the re
port says certain states tax foreign com
panies higher than they do their own com
panies. The states using the retaliatory tax
ation system are alluded to as "having for
gotten that this Is a union of states." Such
laws are denounced as "in their spirit hos
tile to the federal compact, and Increase
the cost of insurance lu ine retaliatory
Federal supervision is held as a remedy
for this vexed problem of taxation, and.
besides, it Is set forth "would require a
strict accounting of the uses made of the
Immense sums accumulated through the
prudence, sacrifice and thrift of millions
of policyholders and will prevent Improvi
dent and Improper Investments and ex
travagant management."
Assuming that federal supervision Is con
stitutional, practicable and desirable, says
the report, the plan by whU'h It can best
be accomplished must necessarily be left
to congress. On the matter of plun fed
eral franchises or national reincorporation
the committee refuses to express an opin
ion. Interstate or Xotf
he question of whether or not insurance
Is Interstate business Is gone Into at length
and a long line of decisions are quoted
touching the point, he report Rays:
"It does not follow because a thing Is
new that it may not be covered by the
constitution, for Marshall characterized
the constitution as 'intended to endure for
ages to come and consequently to he
adapted to the various crises of human
affairs.' " It Is set out that but for Insur
ance "commerce- as we know it, credit as
It is. civilisation as we live it, would not
have been possible."
Numerous decisions and opinions of pub
licists are quoted and the conclusion Is
drawn that "the constitution Is sufficiently
expansive to cover even Instrumentalities
of commerce that were not In existence
or dreamed of at the time of its adop
tion." Congress Itself la asserted to have
directly in words declared Insurance to be
commerce In the act creating the Depart
ment of Commerce and I.abor.
Of the valued policy laws In force in
nineteen or twenty of the states the re
port says these policies call for the pay
ment of the full amount named n the
policy regardless of vulut of the stock at
the time of the fire. The conclusion of
the committee is thst "no one ought to be
nermltled to recover Ou a rxillrv mnro
nan th value ot the Property destroyed "
' Tb- ewmmltt
cummlltee puts itself, euroni a
record in favor of the uniform rolley laws

Less Power for Statesmen.
The committee nsserts tht Insurance
commission! is or state n-.iditnrs have now
altogether too much power In the tnntter
of the revocation of state licenses. A mod
ification of these laws Is recommended s
that the companies which fall under tlie
displeasure of commissioners of states liav
It.g such laws might have a chance to
be heard In defense and alsi have an ap
peal, if necessary, to the courts.
The laws of some states which aim to
prevent the transference of suits on In
surance policies from state to federal courts
are held to be too stringent and the com
mittee favors an effort to nave them made
more lenient.
Vmler the heading. "Statutes Encouraging
Suicide,'1 the committee says that some
states, notably Missouri and California,
now deny to companies the riKht to defend
against dc.ith claims when the Insured has
committed suicide. Such laws are charac
terlied as an Inducement to suicide rather
than otherwise.
Underground or wildcat Insurance com
panies are given crltlcnl consideration as

Latest Story In t'ndnhy Case Comes
from Kast and Ksclades
Pat t'rone.
From New York comes the very latest
development of the Cudahy kidnaping case.
False or true, the New York police, through
Inspector Cross, are Investigating the
story handed them Saturday last by a letter
to detective headquarters. Insiwctor Cross,
who has been handling the case against
Frederick E. Carlton, or McCandless, thi
Brooklyn "Bluebeard" who promises to et
eclipse the record of Johann Hoch, on paper
at least, tn Saturday received a letter to
the effect that the man now In his custody
was concerned In the Cudahy kidnaping
crime in Omaha, some five years ago.
Inspector Cross's Information asserts that
Carlton had in his possession a picture of
the missing boy's clothing and wrote a
letter offering to restore the boy for a
ransom. This communication, says tho
letter, was first written by Carlton, then
copied by a woman living on Fourteenth
street, near Ohio avenue, Washington.
Inspector Cross expressed the opinion
that there was probably nothing In flio
letter, but at the same time he said he was
not going to take any chances and would
send detectives to investigate. In the hope
of getting a further line on Carlton's doings.

In response to an advertisement being
printed In The Omaha lleo asking for bids
for the Missouri avenue londs, tho city
clerk has more than a dozen requests
from lond buyers asking details. These
