U Douglas of MnssHchusetts. who headed
a delegation of boot and shoe nd leather
manufacturers that called on tne presi
dent at the White House today and .made
the principal address to the president In
behalf of the movement to secure a re
peal of the duty on hide. The delegation
numbered In all twenty-eight men, repre
senting the varlnus Industries' Interested.
In addition to the remarks of Governor
Douglas, there were addresses by several
of the other members of the delegation.
Following the presentation Of the views
and desires of the delegation, the president
assured them that their Interests should
surelv receive the painstaking attention
both of the executive and of congress.
In his address Governor Douglas snld
that the boot and shoe Industry of the
country "Is greatly oppressed and burdened
by what we believe to be a needless tariff
duty on hides. This duty not only hand!
caps our Industry and prevents Its proper
growth and expansion, both domestic and
fotelgn, but It is an evil to the country
as a whole. .Without, as we believe, erv
lng any good purpose, this tariff duty
heavily taxes articles essential for the
health and comfort of every man, woman
and child In the land, and thus greatly
Increases the cost of living."
Governor Douglas claimed 'that the 15
per cent on hides did not protect or benefit
the cattle raisers, but did compel all farm
ers to pay higher prices for boots, shoes
harnesses, saddles and other leather goods.
Governor Douglas announced that the In
terests they represent would willingly con
sent to a reasonable reduction of the IS
per cent duty on boots and shoes In order
to obtain free hlds and cheap leather.
All we ask," he added, "Is a free field
and no favor, either In our own or In for
eign markets. Unless the cost of materials
can be reduced, shoes must aoon sell at
much higher prices."
A. Augustus Healy. representing the Hide
and Leather association of New York City
claimed that the removal of the duty on
hides was an urgent necessity.
Matter In Hands of Congress.
After the delegation had presented Ha
views and its desires to the president he
told them that as n matter of concrete
fact the whole subject was one with which
congress must decide and he strongly im
pressed upon them that any action In th
matter must originate In congress.
At the conclusion of the conference W
B. Rice of the firm of Rice & Hutchlns o
Boston made a statement to the newspaper
men of the result of the Interview. He

We were able to assure the president that
the boot and shoe Interests would consent
to a reasonable reduction of the duty on
their products. The president manifested
aeep interest in the statements made
him. He declined to make any statement
committing himself to advocacy of the
repeal of the duty on hides and did not
authorise us to make any statement s
his position on the subject.

marks to the committee of boot, shoe and
leather ' manufacturers who visited the
White House today. President Roosevelt
told the committee that he could not dis
cuss the question freely and Informally,
saying that a year ago Henry M. Whitney
called on him with reference to tariff mat
ters and later misquoted what the presi
dent had said. After reading the Wash
ington dispatch Mr. W'hltney prepared a
statement in which he denied that he had
willfully misrepresented the president or
Intentionally violated any confidence. The
Andrew O. Websler. J. M. W. Hall and
consisting of a subcommittee of the
chamber of commerce committee of lot on
reciprocal trade, visited Washington last
winter for a conference with the president
touching especially the matter of the Hay-
Bond treaty. 1, as chairman of the com
mittee, made an argument in favor of the
treaty and in the Hrgument made refer
ence to the advantage of reciprocal treaties
with Canada, we understood the president
to express himself as not unfavorable to
the Hay-Hond treaty, but desirous of see
ing and favoring also the fullest possible
freedom of trade with Canada. I was not
aware that this was to be regarded in the
nature of a conhdentlal communication:
quite the contrary, as we were there, as we
stated, to the president, as a committee or
the chamber of commerce committee of lOn,
Sent to consult with the president and to
report the result of that conference to the
full committee, which was equivalent to
giving It to the public.
While we may have misunderstood the
president, do not see how we cjuld have
done so. I absolutely deny any "willful
and "Intentional misrepresentation" of the
president's attitude and I have no recollec
tion of what he refers to as the 'context
which was calculated to modify the views
he expressed. The committee above named
made substantially this report to the full
committee at the time of our return from
Washington, and the president's attitude.
as we understood it. haa been subject for
congratulation among our people from the
time of our visit to Washington until the
? resent. It was therefore nothing new and
did not regard my reference to It In my
campaign as new matter,
I regret extremely that the president
should consider that I have misrepresented
nis attitude ana especially tnar ne srrouid
reel tnat 1 nave intentionally done so,
whih 1 aver is not true.
Copies of . this statement were sent to
Mr. Hall and Mr. Webster, who aceom
panled Mr. Whitney to the White House.
Mr. Whitney requested them to examine
the statement carefully and Inform Mr,
Whitney If it corresponded with their recol
lection of the matter. Mr. Webster replied

Mr. Hall In his letter said:

winter. My recollection agrees with vours.
I had no conception that the Interview was
considered confidential by anyone.
Complaint was made that the Omaha
Water company frequently Imposes on
owners of property, in mat u turns on
water at the request of temints and falls to
collect from them, charging the bill to
the owner. Instances were cited In which
he company had fulled to make applica
tion to the tenant for payment as late as
seventy-one days after rent was due. It
was suggested that some owner ought to
refuse to pay such bills and stand a suit.

misquoted him in the campaign which was
closed a few days ago and declared that he
was "constrained to believe that Mr. Whit
ney had deliberately misrepresented what
had occurred." With this experience In
mind the president declined to enter upon
a discussion of the subject of free hides t
this time. The address of the president
waa In part as follows:
It Is, of course, unnecessary to point
out that no change In the tariff can be
made, keeping In view only the interests
or desires of one state or one -locality;
the law must first take tangible shape In

tnerefore. roughly correspond to the senti

Colored men who know more or less of
the killing of William Rollins by Joseph
Koslowskl nt South Oiraha on the night
of July 30 last, are still going and coming
on the stand In the crtmual branch of the
district court. There Is a long list of
them and as the defense has also a large
number to testify along the line of self
defense, the trial probably will occupy all
week. Not one of the witnesses for the
prosecution has admitted the dead man had
any weapon In sight when killed. Koslow
skl and his attorney contend that Rollins
had drawn a knife and also had a revolver.
While all of the colored witnesses were
In deadly earnest In the giving of their tes
timony, the m-tnner of giving It and the
answers occasionally made under the cross
examination of Mr. English were a trifle
diverting. To speak In the present tense of
he happening and Incidents connected with
It waa a common occurrence. One witness,
asked where Rollins, the dead man, was
when he heard the first shot, solemnly
shook his head and In half mournful ca
"Ah don" know where he'a at when dat
shot was fired."
Another witness was Interrogated as to
why he did not take more Intereat In what
Bret Harte would call "the subsequent
proceedings" and said with great earneat
ness: "Ah don' never lak to he eroun' whur
dead folks Is."
A witness of somewhat loquacious bent

GAS COMPANY READY TO BUILD
Will Spend Seventy Thousand Dollars
on New Gas Holder
An ordinance was passed by the city
council Tuesday night which repealed the
nvana ordinance passed some time ago
preventing the gas company from con
structlng a gas holdeV in any section of
the city If any property owner livinc
within 1.000 feet objected. This has stood
in the way of the gas company erecting a
holder at Twenty-second and Burdette
streets for so long the company has given
up the Idea and desires to sell this prop
erty. As soon as the ordinance is signed by
the mayor the company will begin at once
to more than double Its plant at Twentieth
and Center streets. In speaking of the
matter Secretary Clabaugh said:
"We have needed a larger plant foi
some time and this ordinance has kept us
back. At present we carry only gas
enough to supply this city for about seven
hours. You see the city has been liable
to have been in darkness for some time if
some of the machinery should go wrong
All other cities of the slxe of Omaha have
several holders scattered around to help
equalize the pressure and this is more
needed In a hilly community like Omaha.
We will spend In the neighborhood of $70,.
OnO at once on the new plant. The people
need not be alarmed, however, for this
city has been dark but once in thirty
Something of a ripple wait created around
police headquarters Wednesday morning
when It was rumored that Carrie Nation
was abroad In the land and at the time a
caller on Matron Gibbons Though the ru
mor was false, the saloon men In the Third
ward quickly prepared for an attack from
the famous saloon smtsher, and not a few
telephoned police headquarters for latest
news from the seat of war.
A woman bearing a striking resemblance
to the celebrated reformer was seen to go
Into the matron's department at the police
station, and before the truth of the matter
hag got its running boots on the false re
port was several para Bangs to the good.
The woman In question' gave tier name as
Mrs. I,ucille Murray and her occupation
that of temperance lecturer. The story she
told Matron Gibbons was she lost her
money In the I'nlon slatkut Kansas City
Tuesday evening and ma.nuged.tO keep her
ticket to Omaha and 111 cents by having
them In a secure place. . - -
The woman called on''the jollce matron
for assistance, her deaire being to get as
far as Fremont. She said she had been
giving temperance lectures and acknowl
edged her resemblance to Mrs. Nation.
Mrs. Murray carried with her an air of
taking every little gratuity as a matter
of course. She said she, believes men were
made to wait on the women. She was es
corted to the Union station by Matron
Gibbons. When alighting from the street
car at the station she placed her satchel
on the ground and asked the first man she
aw to carry the receptacle to the train
While at the matron's department she
asked for some one to whom she might
talk on the subject of strong drink and
thus do a little good while In the city.
Boston Green, who is serving out a fine
of $12 and costs, was Introduced to the
woman, but Mr. Green did not seem to
take any deep Interest In the matter.

It gives quick and permanent

ton headquarters. An attache of 1neral
Manager lloldrege'a office said:
"We have not heard of the Intontion of
Mr. Blgnell to resign and we do no think
auch Is true."

Rosewater Disensae Ordinances
Railroads Reapond to Demand
City Engineer Rosewater. in discussing
the ordinances, called attention to the plan
now being worked out In the city of Balti
more. "In that city," said Mr. Rosewater,
"a revenue la derived from the use of the
streets, I understand in the neighborhood
of 1800,000 annually. The council ha a
regular schedule of prices and when a
corporation desires to lay a track upon the
atreets it must pay into the city so much
money every year. It Is the same when a
person wants to construct a sign out over
the street. Omaha should be able to secure
some reveune from the use of Its streets.
The city should be paid for the construction
of ui.derground store rooms, which extend
out under the streets. By allowing so
much, underground building, the day will
come when Omaha will lie unable to con
stuct any subwaya, because they would run
Into the subways of private business
Jerry McMahon, former city hall elevator
conductor, waa at the city hall Wednesday
morning protesting against granting these
trackage rights, lie says many property
owners will protest,
A irc mlnent I'nlon Pacific official said:
"There is such an Insistent demand for
more truckage that we were compelled to
ask permission to lay these tracks. The
present wholesale district Is practically
filled and the property around Capitol
avenue and Eleventh and Twelfth streets
might much better be used for warehouses ;
than to be nonrevenue brodurln the a-av I
It is now. We realise there 1 a public
demand to keep the railroad tracks from
crossing the street car tracks, and this Is
what we have tried to prevent. Of course,
we have received numerous requests and do
receive them every day to extend our lines
across the street car tracks on Tenth street,
but this we do not wish to da and will
not as long as there is building room elsewhere."

Announrementa were made in the rooms
of the Leavenworth school Juat before the
closing hour to the effect that there would
be no achool there today. The matter wa
given a rather mysterious coloring by the
time the report reached the news centers.
An investigation showed a new departure
had been arranged by the city superin
tendent and that this waa its first trial.
