On election day The Bee printed the fact
that In some precincts petitions calling
upon the city clerk to submit the question
to the voters at a special election were
, being presented ' to the cltisens who ap
peared at the polla. '.At that time no In
formation was given out by the circulators
: as to who was behind the move. ,
Since election .day the petitions have had
a more active circulation among business,
professional and working-men.- One . man
was approached four times Saturday morn
ing by as . many men bearing as many
different petitions of the. same Import. It
Is said signatures are not coming as rapidly
as 'desired. ' ' , .. .'

.' The. lnltlatlvo and referendum law pro
vides that it shall be effective only In com
munities where It has. been submitted to
. popular vote and approved. If - It is ap
proved by a majority of cltisens voting on
the question per cent of the voters may,
at any time, petition the council for any
thing they want in the shape of franchisee
or other legislation. If the petitions are
sufficient and good It is mandatory on the
council to submit the question and If the
question carries the council and mayor
must carry out the popular will.
In submitting the question for the ap
proval or rejection of the law the city
clerk Is the officer who must comply with
the demands of the petition. Before, when
efforts have been made to have the law
submitted, the courts have spoiled the at
tempt by declaring the petitions Insufficient
and lacking the proper qualifications.
What Elbonrn Says.
"I am not very familiar with the law on
the subject." said City Clerk Elbourn. "but
whatever the law directs mo to do shall be
the rule I shall follow."
President Zlmman of the council was
asked what he knew about the petitions.
"As I understand It," said he, "the move
was made first by the Cleveland people Who
want a dollar gas franchise. These people
have by no means given up the fight to
get the grant. They started the petitions
going. Now, I believe, the Independent
telephone franchise seekers, have Joined, or.
at any rate, are supporting the affair.
Therefore the petitions arc' being Circu
lated." 'Councilman ' Dyball said he had positive
Information the' petitions he had heard
about were gat up and circulated by the
Independent telephone Interests. President
Zlmman thought 'only the gas syndlcata
had got the thatter under way. ' ' '
INDICTS FORMER CONGRESSMAN
William D. Owea Areasea of Gettlac
Cask la Fraadaleat Deal
BOSTON, Nov. 11. Indictments were re
ported by the grand Jury of Suffolk county
today against Ferdinand E. Borgea, form
erly director and alleged promoter of the
Vbero Plantation company, and former
Congressman William D. Owen of Indiana,
an alleged associate of Borgea. The Indict
ments, which are Identical, charge Borges
and Owen with obtaining more than $26,000
by fraud from Charles W. Abbott, Edwin
O. Child, John M. lenders and Warren P.
Page, Investors In the company. ,
It Is alleged that Owen and Borge con
spired to bring about the larcencles with
which they are charged. The grand Jury's
action follows a long Investigation by a
committee of stockholders of the company
as well aa.an Inquiry pursued by the re
ceivers, who were appointed on petition of
the petitioning committee.
. Borges was arraigned today and bonds
of 175,000 were Imposed by the court to
hold him for further hearing. In opposing
a motion for a reduction of ball the as
sistant district attorney reviewed the op
erations of the I'bero company and said
that' 175,000 was the least amount of ball
that should be required In view of the
fact that : the defendants "reaped f 1,000,000
by this conspiracy."
' Owen has represented Indiana In congress.
He was also secretary of state of Indiana
and was Immigration commissioner In New
York under President .Harrison.
CANAL IN STATE 'DEPARTMENT
uggeattoa Blade ia Washington that
Secretary Root Have Chars
of Big Ditch.
WASHINGTON, Nov. ll.-An echo of the.
suggestion that the Isthmian canal should
be placed under the State department has
been heard In a rumor of the possibility
that the Insular bureau which grew up un
der the direction of Secretary Root when
he was at the head of the War department
may be transferred to the State depart
ment. Discussion of the matter has not taken
any concrete form, but it Is one of the sug
gestions made to relieve the secretary of
war of the heavy responsibilities which
now rest upon - him In administering not
only the affairs of the army, but the Phil
ippines, the Panama canal and other island
interests. It argued that Secretary Root's
past familiarity with the Philippines will
enable him to take up the work which has
been carried by Secretary Taft It would
require legislation to bring about the
change, as the Insular bureau was legis
lated Into the War department when the
Philippine government bill was passed.

4 era el Falls Preserved
VTARUIXflTON', Nov. 1L President
Roosevelt placed himself on record today
strongly In favor of the preservation in
tart of the wonder of 'Niagara Falls.
To visitors who called to urge the presi
dent to use his Influence through the com
bined action of the American and Canadian
governments for the preservation of the
Niagara Fs.Ha and to prevent the diversion
of their waters to commercial and Indus
trial uses the president said he regarded It
as a great national duty to do all that
might be in his power to preserve Niagara
Falls and that In his message to congress
he would recommend action along that line
with all the force with which he was cap
able. He said that he believed Niagara
Falls, the grand canyon of the Colorado,
the big trees of California and the Buffalo
should be preserved for posterity. Cali
fornia, he added, had presented to the na
tion a grove of the big trees, and If the
state of New Tork could not preserve Ni
agara. Falls Inviolate the national govern
ment Should step In to keep them as they
are now for the American people as one of
the natural wonders . of the . world. The
president said that If he were to make a
public address before the convening of
congress he would take the opportunity
to speak In favor of preservation of Niagara

Omaha Firm Spreadtaa;.
The Beacon Press of Omaha haa recently
Incorporated. This company has been doing
business since 1897. The general manager
says that this company has been doing an
extensive business In contracting with large
concerns for advertising matter, books,
blank books and general printing, and has
bocome quite noted for Its artistic produc
tions. Recently several orders were received
fiom points within 100 miles of Chicago.
The work heretofore ha been done In Chi
cago, Milwaukee, St. Louis and Omaha.
The company has now taken a five-year
lease of the third floor. 1210 Howard street.
It being found difficult to obtain satisfac
tory composition of the artlstlo work for
which this company haa become famous
and the Increase of It business appear to
Justify the owning and operating of -a
complete plant for this purpose.
The company will also furnish hand and
machine coin position for the trade. The
company proposes to contract Its press
work and binding a heretofore. An ad- i yet tnat tne ge are getting a gratifying
Half Slsea la Clothing;.
The Introduction, at the beginning of the
season, of half sizes In clothing by the
originators. Browning, King St Co., gave
rise to quite an Interesting controversy
on clothing sixes In retail stores.
Browning, King & Co. had been at .work
on half sixes for upwards of. a year, and
at first contemplated bringing the new
Idea out last spring, but later It was de
cided to Introduce It for fall. The first
announcement of the ' Innovation woke
other clothiers to a realisation of Just
where they were "at.'.'
Now' that Browning, King & Co., are
reaping a harvest from the hard to fit
people with their half sixes which are not
only very much talked about,-but .'looked
upon , by other . clothiers', as . about the
strongest selling point Introduced In cloth
ing In a long while there are others who
desire to Impress the public with the fact
that they have a number of slxea for men
of different proportions. '" V ' '":'
Browning, King Co. are the originator
and' sole makers of half sixes in clothing.
Why half sizes are necessary: A man,
alse 40, may be t feet 2, or as tall as feet
S. To fit him In 'either case, they cut
regular, regular shorts, stouts, longs, extra
longs five sizes all having the same
breadth. The man of a half Inch larger
measurement now has the same variety
at all our stores and nowhere else. This
ha been the way with hats, shoes, gloves
and collars; and why not with coats?
Measure yourself are you ' Just an even
size, or half an Inch larger?
In the controversy on sizes, those most
Interested In pursuing Inquiries have made
the discovery that In the majority of
special order houses making clothe to
measure for hard to fit patrons of the
ready-made clothier, half Inch measure
ment predominate. This would aeem to
be a strong argument In favor of half
else, and to Illustrate the strength of
Browning, King Co's. position.
Whether the firm's remarkable business

tyle and fabrics, to the general pros
perity of the country, or to all of these
things together. It would be hard to say,
