This Is the ultlmatlm of Mayor Moores,
whlrh he announced Wednesday morning.
It says he will veto the resolution ordering
a $123 reviewing stand built In front of ths
city hall for the use of himself and guests
on the ground that the general fund of the
city Is overdrawn, and he will not sanc
tion the spending of another penny from
It for any purposa.
"I have no. mora right to a reviewing
stand than the councllmen or other city
officials," said the mayor. "This resolution
is a bit of rank class legislation. If ths
councllmen and their friends can't be ac
commodated, neither can I and my friends.
There is no money available to build the
stand, and down goes my veto."
"But, Mr. Mayor," Inquired a thunder
struck reporter, "where will the key cere
mony be carried outT"
"There won't be any key or any
speeches," continued bis honor. "The peo
pie are sick and tired of It. If I could talk
loud enough Iqto a phonograph I might let
It make a speech for me, but I don't think
the matter can be arranged In that way."
"Will you Issue the annual proclama

THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL.
Pew People Know How Isefal It'le la
Preserving Health ana Beaatr.
Nearly everybody knows that charcoal la
the safest and most efficient disinfectant
and : purler In nature, but few realise its
value when taken Into the human system
for ths same cleansing purpose.
Charcoal Is a remedy that the more you
take of It the better; It Is not a drug at
all, bat simply absorbs the gses and Im
purities always present In the stomach and
intestines and carries them out of the sys
tem, Charcoal sweetens the breath after smok
ing, drinking or after eating onions and
other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and Improves
the complexion. It whitens the teeth and
further acts as a natural and eminently
It absorbs the" Injurious gases which col
lect In the rlomach and bowel.; it disin
fects the mouth and throat from the
poison Of catarrh.
All druggists sell charcoal In one form or
another, but probably the best charcoal and
the most for the money Is In Stuart's Char
coal Losenges; they are composed of the
finest powdered willow charcoal and other
harmless " antiseptics In tablet form, or,
rather. In the form of large, pleasant tast
ing losenges, the charcoal being mixed
The dally use of these losenges will soon
tell In a much Improved condition of the
general health, better complexion, sweeter
breath and purer blood, and the beauty of
It Is that no possible harm can result from
their-continued use, but, on the contrary,
A Buffalo physician. In speaking of the
benefits of charcoal, says: "I advise
Stsart'S Charcoal Losenges to all patients
suffering from gas In the stomach and
bowels, and to clear the complexion and
purify the breath, mouth and throat; I
also believe the Uver la greatly benefited
by- the dally use of them; they coat but
twenty-five cents a box. at drug stores,
and although la some sense a patent prep
aration, yet I believe I eel more and bet

than In any of t&e ordinary charcoal tablets.-

LIGHTING FUND ON THREAD
Haagi oa Delioate Uncertaintj of Tsoi
lisal Law Point.
SUTTON LOOKED TO FOR A DECISION
Question Is, Has City Bleat to An
ticipate as Basis of Con
tract Assotl Royal
ties Paid In.
The street lighting of Omaha hangs In
the balance on a law point now up to
Judge Sutton of the district court for de
cision In the gas contract Injunction case,
which went over until Tuesday, when
called yesterday morning.
The point Is whether or not the city has
the right to anticipate as a basis for mak
ing lighting contracts the annual royalties
paid by the gas and electric light com
panies. Under the old and new charters
authority Is given tor adding the royalty
proceeds to the lighting- fund. In the past
the current royalties, which are never paid
until early In the following year, have been
used to offset current bills, the lighting
companies holding back the bills for the
last three months of the year so as to
even up accounts.
Small Amount Left.
According to the showing of the comp
troller, only $218 remained In the lighting
fund available September 20. The ques
tion was raised as to the right or power
of the council to go on contracting lighting
Indebtedness In the face ofc the strict pro
visions of the new charter against buying
when there Is not money In the treasury
Mayor Moores said that unless he was
assured he had no legal right to do so he
would veto all lighting bills for the re
mainder of the year. If It came to a pass
where all street lamps were extinguished
and the cltlsens left unprotected at the
hands of criminals, with less than one-half
of the usual police force to cover the city,
the mayor said the blame and responsi
bility would rest with the lawmakers.
City Attorney Breen takes an optlmlstle
view of the situation. He says he Is con
fident, the city has the right to 'anticipate
the royalties In making contracts and run
ning up lighting bills and believes the
courts will so decide. He points out that
In reality the net Indebtedness In the light
ing bills at the end Jf the year Js covered
by the lighting fund,- because the eity has'
the (ilfterence coming to It from the light
What Royalties Come To.
Last year the royalties amounted to about
$24,000. Information received from the gas
and electrlo light companies this week Is
to the effect that the combined royalties
this year already assure $3,000 more than
last year. With this rate of Increase the
chances for a deficiency In the lighting
fund are diminished.
"It would be little short of a calamity If
the street lamps had to be dispensed with
for the remainder of the year," said City
Attorney Breen. "I am hopeful that things
will not come to that pass. The lighting
bills are really payable yearly and not
monthly and this Is favorable toward the
view that the current year's royalties can
be computed In and figured aa part of the
lighting fund for that year. At present X
see no cause for alarm."
NEW .'PHONE LINE NOT WANTED
Daal System la Omaha la Not Needed,
Real Batata Men
It was the opinion of all those who talked
on the subject of telephones at the meet
ing of the Real Estate exchange Wednes
day that Omaha does not want a dual tele
phone system. At the same time the speak
ers thought pressure Should be brought to
bear on the Nebraska Telephone company
to make It connect with Independent lines
In districts where it does not have local
service of Its own, but has long distance
Members of the exchange who expressed
themselves were W.- T. Graham. C. O.
Saunders and C. F. Harrison. Rome Miller,
I. W. Carpenter, H.- B. Graham and David
Cole, who had been Invited to the meeting
by the committee appointed to provide for
the discussion of the telephone question,
also made addresses. -
It was decided to Invite representatives
of the Nebraska Telephone company and
of the Independent company to be present
and talk at the next meeting of the club,
which, on account of the Ak-Sar-Ben fes
tivities, may be postponed until a week
from next Wednesday.

NEW TORK, Sept. 27. Today's session of
the legislative committee to Investigate In
surance methods was given over to the
matter of syndicate transactions of the
Equitable Ufe Assurance society. Henry
R. Wlnthrop, assistant secretary and finan
cial maneger Of the society, was again on
the witness stand and many of his state
ments were accompanied by typewritten
documents giving the various transactions
In detail. It was brought out that In one
of these syndicates Senator Pepew was a
participant to the extent of $100,000 and the
senator. was required to appear before the
Mr. Wlnthrop was unable to find where a
record of the profits from a number of the
syndicate transactions was made end ex
pert accountant now at work on the books
of the society are expected to unearth
these later. -
The witness detailed a number of loans to
the Equitable Trust and Mercantile Trust
companies, as well as the eharlng of these
companies In syndicate transactions with
Mysterious Trastee Areoahts.
Late In the day Henry Greaves, who was
a clerk for George H. Squire, formerly a
member of the finance committee, was
called to supply some Information regard
ing the "George H. Squire, trustee," ac
count and from him It was learned that
there were a number of these accounts.
There was, besides the "George H. Squire,
trustee," account, the "Marcellus Hartley,
trustee," account, and another, the "J. W.
Alexander, trustee," account. Mr. Greaves
produced the bankbook of the Squire, ac
count and by means of It Mr. Hughes tried
to trace amounts that would correspond to
profits to this account; but the witness
could not remember the Items of the
amounts deposited. Mr. Greaves was still
on the stand when the session adjourned
for the day.
Mr. Greaves, however, gave way tempor
arily to Mr. Wlnthrop, while Mr. Hughes
queried further regarding syndicates. Mr.
Wlnthrop was asked to furnish a list of
the Individual participants In syndicates
and said that President Morton was pre
paring such a statement. Mr. Wlnthrop
raid he had no positive Information of the
James H. Hyde syndicates but he experts
to have. Mr. Wlnthrop said that In the
Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and
Long Island fours syndicate, managed by
Kuhn, Loeb St Co. there were two partlclja
tlons. one of $500,000, the other of $109,000,
The society derived profits of $2,$86 on the
$100,000, while J. W. Alexander, J. H. Hyde,
G. II. Squire and W. H. Mclntyre divided
the profits on the $500,000.-' The - Equitable
put up $218,100. It has received no Interest,
neither has the money been returned and
when asked If the matter had been called
to the attention of these gentlemen Mr.
Wlnthrop said: "It will be."
Jacob H. Schltf Sobpoeaaed.
Jacob H. Schlff, of Kuhn, Loeb A Co., wae
subpoenaed today and it Is expected that
he will appear to testify tomorrow or Fri
day. Mr. Schlff will be asked about the
transactions of his firm with the New Tork
Life 'Insurance company as well as with
the Equitable- . i :
Mr, Hughes was reticent. With regard to
tomorrow's proceedings. He stated that he
Intended to continue examination of Mr.
Greaves and the Mysterious George'- H.
Squire, trustee. As there are a number of
entries yet to be considered In the new
account and as there Is very little light upon
them at present, a good deal of time will
probably be consumed In trying to find out
tbelr true meaning.
Andrew Hamilton Account.
The first witness today was George C.
Van Tuyl, Jr.. secretary and treasurer of
ths Albany Trust company, who produced
a transcript of the account of Andrew
Hamilton opened February 2L 1806.
He stated that neither the bank nor he
had knowledge of the purpose for which
checks were paid In or out on that account.
Mr. Van Tuyl was excused and Henry
Rogers Wlnthrop, assistant secretary of
the Equitable Life Assurance society, re
sumed his testimony as to the syndicate
transactions of his company. Mr. Wlnthrop
said that In the syndicate organized to
take the bonds Issued on the reorganization
of the Union Pacific Railroad company the
Equitable society was allotted $17.000 of
the bonds and the profits the society re
ceived from this transaction were $.750
shares of Union Pacific preferred stock.
The Equitable society, Mr. Wlnthrop said,
paid only for the amount for which it sub
scribed. Aa-eat for Two Compaalea.
Mr. Hughes, counsel for the committee,
asked why It waa that the Equitable so
ciety had paid $750,000 to the Mercantile
Trust company. Mr. Wlnthrop said It waa
because the checks were paid that way.
Several vouchers signed by George H.
Squires aa secretary of a tnance commit
tee of ye Equitable society were shown In
evidence, as also waa a letter from George
H. Squires for the Mercantile Trust com
pany to General Fitsgerald of. the finance
committee of the Equitable society ask
ing for payment of $6U,000, or 80 per cent
of the Equitable' s participation In the
Union Pacific syndicate In consequence of
a call by Kuhn, Ixeb at Co.
"Then George H. Squires, first as an
officer of the Mercantile Trust company,
writes to the Equitable and asks for $600,
000, and then, as an officer of the Equitable,
signs checks paying the money to the Mer
cantile Trust company T" asked Mr.
"Yes," replied Mr. Wlnthrop.
Mr. Wlnthrop said that General Louis
Fitsgerald. chairman of the finance com
mittee of the Equitable society, subscribed
for $1,(00.000 of the Union Pacific bonds and
whoerer held the bonds over the allotment
of the $750,000 to the Equitable also re
ceived for profits $.750 shares of Union Pa
cific preferred stock.
In the Northern Pacific syndicate the
Equitable participated to the extent of
$500,000 and the profits ultimately amounted
to $41,S2. This was not paid In cash, but
In Northern Pacific shares, which appeared
on the society's books. In the Central Pa
cific, refunding syndicate the society's par
ticipation was $350,000. Speyer Co., the
syndicate managers, sent a check for $14,

to find In what account this was entered
On the society's books, but the search was
still being made, A syndicate to handle
Southern Pacific gold bonds was formed,
and on November 18 Speyer A Co. alloted
the Equitable society' $250,000 of these

MANIFESTO BY HUNGARIAN PARTY
It Declares that the Klnc-F.mperov
la Attempting; to Abolish
Loeml Self Govern
ment. BUDAPEST, Sept $7. Between forty and
fifty persons were Injured In riots here
this evening when socialists and adherents
of the coalition parties, including students,
clashed opposite the Royal Hotel and for
two hours there were scenes of tremendous
excitement. The Royal hotel la the head
quarters of the Independence club. In which
Is the council room of the coalition leaders.
The students nd other supporters of the
coalition had arranged for a gigantic torch
light procession tonight but during the
day the socialists Issued Inflammatory proc
lamations calling on all socialists and others
opposed to the coalition to gather and
fight for their rights which they said the
coalition was trying to sidetrack under
cover of an alleged affront by the klng
emperor to the whole nation. Owing to
these proclamations the coalition leaders
decided to postpone the torchlight proces
sion, seeking thus to avoid bloodshed.
At ( o'clock about 1,500 socialists gathered
outside the Independence club and an
nounced their Intention of entering and
tearing down the council room. A large
force of police was present and was assisted
by 150 prominent cltlsens.
The mob made an effort to enter, but was
vigorously opposed by the police. A fight
ensued' and amid the wildest clamor a
number of persons were stabbed, but the
socialists wore finally scattered. Fifteen
minutes later, however, the socialists again
gathered. By this time adherents of the
coalition party In large numbers appeared
and a free fight ensued. An immense mass
of people surged in every direction, fight
ing and singing. Knives, sticks and stones
were used vigorously.
Meanwhile a thunderstorm came up and
vivid lightning lit up the square, while the
thunder added a note of terror. Rain fell
In torrents and the combatants were finally
dispersed by the police. It is reported that
over forty persons were wounded, eight of
them seriously. There were no deaths.
Manifesto by Coalition Party..
The committee of the coalitionists have
Issued a manifesto to the nation In reply to
the program submitted to Its leaders by the
emperor-klng. The manifesto declares that
some points of his majesty's prorram are
not In conformity with the constitution, re
ferring especially to his contention that the
question of the language of command In the
Hungarian army must be entirely elimi
nated from discussion. It Is asserted that
this is equivalent to the abolition of the na
tion's right to control its own affairs, for
which there Is no legal authority.
The newspapers characterise the state
ments of the Austrian premier. Baron
