brought suit to have a Just and lawful dis

claims .that, in 104 the society distributed
In divldenda among the; policyholders the
sura of $6,011,908, of wiiksli he. received 13.
He asserts that the sum whloh should have
been distributed was $S6. 798.175, of which hia
proportion would have been $188. ' . '

The principal question suggested by this
complaint was whether or not the policy

surplus of the society over' and above the
legal reserve required by law. A policy,

soon as he (Davis) and Ihe other officers
had alighted. He was paying attentloft to
Frank Murphy, Tyhom he reongnlaed as the

Davis gave It as his belief that the fleeing

Between recess -appointments and - new

of appointments .ever", transmitted to the
upper branch of , congress In a single day.

of particular Interest1 to the transmlssourl

The appointment of Seth Bullock to be
marshal of SoutV Dakota did not come as
a surprise to the delegation from that state,
although the members have nothing on

;'The terms of the- registers and receivers
of tho land office at Sundance and Buffalo.
Wyo.. will shortly expire, and we will
nominate ."persons to 011 these positions
Irrespective of what the secretary of the
Interior or Commission of the general land
office may do toward consolidating these
positions In one -person." remarked Frank
Mondell, the congressman from Wyoming,
today. Mondefl takes a wholly different
view from Commissioner Richards in re
gard to the consolidation of the position of
register and receiver and making one offi
cer do all the work. He is outspoken that
such a policy would do more harm, than
good and that the reduction In salaries of
either ths register or receiver of the local
land offices by discontinuing one or the
othtr would prove ' a very costly bit of
economy. Mr. Mondell maintained that re
reivers snd registers primarily pass upon
the -eatlre publio domain, tha,t they first
lay down the law regarding the rights of
settlers and the rights of entrymen to the
publio lands of the United States and In
consequence these officers are essentially
necessary to carry out the letter and spirit
of the law. "It would be interesting to
know, if such a thing were possible." said
Mr. Mondell, "what induced Governor Rich
ard to suggest .the elimination of one of
the officers in the local land offices 'when
be knew bow important It Is to have more
than one person pass upon an entrj man's
title to his propertju."
Palmer Oat! far Bear..
Captain H.. E. Palmer, posunaster at
Omaha, arrived In Washington today and.
as he says. Is "loaded for bear." Captain
Palmer la here for two purposes to ai.
tend the meeting of the board of managers
of the National Soldiers' homes and to In-
duce the Postofrloe department to raise the
salaries of some of the clerks and to secure
for the Omaha postoffice the standlrVg it
deserves by reAaon of Its Increased receipts.
Today Captain rainier secured an allow
ance of ISO days' extra work to cover the
holiday rush. This means the addition of
a number of "substitutes" on the clerk roll
to take rare of the Increased business due
to the holiday season. Mr. Palmer will also
ask for a new clerk for the general deliv
ery and a new clerk for the registry divi
sion of his office. "The postoffice receipts
at Omaha for the last eight months," raid
Captain Palmer, show a gain of Hi per cent
over the corresponding period of last year.
We have never been In such good condition
as we are today. Omaha Is on an equality
with . Denver and St. Paul, and yet the
force at Omaha Is considerably smaller
than In the other two cities mentioned, to
say nothing of the difference In salaries.
Reclassification Is necessary and I propose
to get it If I can.'

CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS
(Continued from First Page.)
strengthened to carry that load. The board
states that the two fundamental principles
in designing foundations of buildings have
not been '.followed; first, .to distribute ths
lands carried' so that the bearings upon the.
earth shall be equal, land fhanhe road or
aefi' foundation come' ; directly over, the
center, .-otherwise unequal settlement will
occur, producing excessive stress In the
columns" or walls not supported. But for
ths good quality of the clay," the report
states, ..the unequal settlement would huve
been noticed by this time. The board
made the following recommendation re
garding the walls; . .
We therefore recommend that the loads
of all side wail columns be supported
upon cantilever foundations so designed
that the wall, columns will be supported
entirely within the lot lines of the build
ing. This will result in a slight reduction
in the loads coming up the intermediate
column foundations, and the foundations
can all be so proportioned that a sure
bearing pleasure will be obtained for all
footings throughout the building.
' Railroads and the Streets.
The ordinances granting the Union Pacific
and the Burlington railroad the use of cer
tain streets and alleys between Ninth and
Thirteenth street and California and Cap
itol "avenue were passed, though the Bur
lington ordinance was amended so that
road could come no farther west than
Eleventh street. This amendment was
made because under the original ordinanco
its tracks would have crossed, the Illinois
When the resolution was reached to grant
Peter ller permission to -pipe his heat and
water from bis plant on the river bank, to
the new hotel he ia going to erect and to
other buildings he owns en route, the coun
cil took on the characteristics of a-Mis-
sour Ian and passed the resolution, which
was changed to provide that Mr. Her could
begin work when he bad mado the excava
tion for his new hotel and tiien he would
have to do the work In what ' the council
termed a reasonable time, the council being
the judge of the time. Mr. Her was given
permission to remove a number of his
buildings at Sixteenth and Jackson streets
to other portions of the umi lots to make
way for the contemplated structure. , .
Contractors' Claim Held Is. ,
.The claim of $1S.?D filed by fancy ft Red
mond for contract work was rejected be
cause it was stated by the committee that
the city had paid a Judgment of $5,000. which
was secured by a party who was injured on
their work, and that the city Is now suing
the bondsmen of these men for the money,
therefore It was thought best to hold on to
whatever the city had belonging to the firm.
The communication of John T. Cat hers
protesting against the mayor drawing a
salary- of $32.33 a month as a member of the
license board, which was referred to the
city attbrney, was brought., back to the
council with the recommendation that it be
filed away as a curiosity. The city attorney
made no, recommendation about ths U-gality
of the mayor's action In drawing the salary.

NEW YORK. Dec. S. Four of New York's

I all wa)', the street and that, dark section
known as "Chinatown" each furnished a
police mystery today. In two cases, the
subway and Chinatown, death had come
between the victims snd the Investigators.
In the first the police have only the man
gled body of a man who, before he hurled
himself before a rapidly moving train, had
taken every precaution to thwart the ef
forts of tho officers to establish lils identity!
His clothing, unmistakably new, bore not
a single distinguishing mark and not even
a trinket was found In any of the pockets.
The man was about to years of age, weigh
ing 170 pounds. . was five feet nine Inches
In height, had dark hair and blue eyes, and
the scrupulous care with which he was
dressed Indicated that he was not a laborer.
Beyond these meager details, however,
nothing Is known. The man Jumped di
rectly lit front of a train as It swung Into
the 177th street and Broadway station -of
the sobway. His body was literally ground
to pieces. '
White- Womaa la (hlnatovra.
The ,Chlnatown mystery was the death
of a woman, Lottie 1-ane, a white woman
whose husband, a Chinaman, died a short
time ago. Since then she has been living
In Pell street In the house of Mock Duck,
"one of the most notorious of the Chinese
lenders In 'New York, who Is now under
arrest awaiting' trial on a charge of murder.
Lottie Lane had three callers last night, a
Chinaman and a 'white man and a white
woman.' During the night these callers
summoned a physician and notified the po
lice that their hostess had fainted while
she was entertaining them; The physician,
who found her dead when ho arrived, re
garded the death as suspicious. Tli police
put the three callers under arrest and be
gan an investigation.
The central figure. In the mystery of the
river Is William Halllnger, aged 28 years,
a market man, who says his home Is In
Yonkers. He was dragged from the East
river near the upper end of Hell Gate early
this morning, more dead than alive, by a
tugboat captain who heard his ' cries for
help. Halllnger said he came from Yon
kers yesterday with a load of produce and
after disposing of his wares started oi't
to enjoy himself.
He told the police he remembered Hi tie
since last night until he was found strug
gling In the water. It was found the man
had a fractured skull.
Mabel Weber, a 20-year-old girl, was the
fourth victim. Found lying bound, gagged
ami senseless In the hallway of the house In
West Forty-first street, .where she resided
with two girl companions, she was taken
to a hospital. For hours shs waa unable to
give the police any Information whloh
would assist them In locating her assailant
