taken today the ommlttee had not finished
the. examination of President Hegcmnn, and
he will be called again next week.
Just before the hour of adjournment
today Mr. Hegeman was excused and Joe
Howard. Jr., a writer who has been em
ployed by the Mutual Life, was called to
the stand He identified vouchers that he
had sinned for money received for writing
advertisements and reading rdtiees for the
Mutual Life. Mr. Howard afforded much
amusement by his declaration that his ohly
regret was that he could not sign more of
these vouchers. His only complaint was .
that he wns not paid enough for his work, j
This, tr.o, was the complaint (n the wlt-
ness stand of Charles Smith, who also
does writing for the Mutual Life and re
ceives fS.noo a year for It.
Mr. Howard said he had been employed
thirty or forty years by the Mutual Life.
but the vouchers went back only td 1809.
I There were ten of these vouchers, aggre

At tne conclusion oi tne ngni aimsmp-

The code at the naval academy abso

HONOR FOR OMAHA CITIZEN
Wrlaht la elected Prealdrnt
the National Hardware
WASHINGTON, Nov. 10.-A joint ban
quet attended by about too men and
women, ut the New Wlllard hotel tonight,
terminated the meetings of the National
Hardware association and the American
Hardware Manufacturers' association.
i whlch ,lave br,"n I" progress for the last
mice aays. . p. wright or Omaha, tile
newly elected president of the National
Hardware association, acted as toasrmaster
and toasts were responded to by Repre
sentative Theodore K. Burton of Ohio and
James R. Garfield, chief of tho bureau of
statistics of commerce and labor.
Addresses were also made by Secretary
Shaw ami Director of the Mint Roberts.
Several of the speakers touched upon tho
question of the regulation of freight rates
by some body created by rongress.
Secretary Shaw declared that the evil of
Die fi-nli'tit hil.. no. .ou .i..
, ....r.... ........ a ., u mi. fiin null ill,?
1 transportation company, but with shippers
How to cope with both." be said waa a
question that is puzzling the government.
The question would soon dissolve and the
evil be abolished.
"But now as to rebates. My own Idea
about rebates Is this: The rebate must stop
and the railroad is not the only sinner in
the case. Such action must be taken by
legislation and the enforcement of that
legislation as will apply the remedy to
both the beneficiary and tho railroads."
Representative Burton expressed the
opinion that it would be impossible for any
commission to enter upon the question of
regulation of freight rates without entering
upon a field that Is utterly Impossible.
The American Hardware Manufacturers'
association at today's session endorsed
President Roosevelt's plan for rate regu
lation by a vote of 49 to 7.
F. S. Kretslnger of Cleveland was elected
president of the manufacturers' association
and J. C. Blrgo of St. Ixiuls a member of
the advisory board. It was decided to meet
at Hot 8prlngs. Va., six months hence.
STRIKE IN CITY WATER WORKS
Machinist Employed on Repair Work
In Chicago Plant Will Walk
CHICAGO, Nov. 10. Two departments of
the city service, the water pumping sta
tions and the electric lighting plant, may
be involved In a strike tomorrow.
The union machinists threaten to cause
kout of the men engaged In over-
g the machinery at several of the
city plants. A vote to strike has already
been taken and the time for action has
been sot at noon tomorrow.
The trouble arises from a controversy
regarding the "open shop" between the
' unions und the Anderson Machine com
pany, which has the contract for repair
, work from the city. One non-union man
. has been working with the unionists and
the Anderson company refused tod.iv ir.
discharge him on the demand of the Unlona.
The vote to atrlke 'was then taken. It Is
not expected thut tho water supply of tha
city will be affected by the strike If It
comes. It will anect only that part of the
north side of the city which is supplied
j through the pumping station at East Chl-
' LUgU KVCIIUD.
