At a meeting or the board rf director
nf the Omit tut (Jrnln rxrhanK" Tuesday,
December resolutions w rf iid'-ipted
nharply denouncing- the Chl airo. Milwaukee
A 8. I'aul Hallway comny for Rll-ired
discrimination apiilnet Omului In the mat
ter of grain rates to the, favor of Kansas
City, and threatening retaliatory measures
unless the. discrimination be at once done
away with.
F. A. Nash, the Omaha representative of
the Milwaukee rnnd. was asked In refer
ence o the resolutions Tuesday nlKht. ami
whether ho hnrt yt received a copy of
them, lie enid:
"I heard that eueli action was contem
plated, and I was givnn to understand that
the exchange would notify me when the
matter was to come up in order that 1
might be present to explain the matter. I
was not notified and knew nothing of the
resolution until Informed by a reporter
for The Bee. I can say In all slneorlty
that not a pound of grain will be diverted
from Omaha under this new tariff which
goes Into effect January 1. nor will Omaha
be Injured in tho slightest degree.
Calls It Politics.
"The statement that the Omaha grain
market will be Injured Is all political clap
(rap and buncombe. I can reiterate the
statement I made a few days ago and
which appeared in The Sunday Bee. The
Chicago, Milwaukee Ai St. Taul Hallway
company has not taken and will not take
any uction to injure the Omaha Grain ex
change. The road is making an Intelli
gent fight and has accomplished more for
the Omaha grain markets than have nil
the other railroads combined during the
laxt five years. Our methods should not
be uttacked, ut . least until some injury
ran be shown, and with a fair understand
ing of the entire situation. We have never
Intended to make a 3-ccnt cut in favor of
Kansas City. We have made the tight
from Kansas City, and to actually nwve
the grain had to put In the 15-cent rate,
which did the business. In making this
rate we did not have to make :i rate
from Omaha, as there was no necessity for
tearing down the Omaha rate, but
simply did it as a matter of form.
Our light was made from Kansas
City Bnd we have won it. nnd Omaha
gets (lie benefit more than is appreciated,
for it now has established markets for
Its coin. Baltimore merchants now know
that they can come to Omaha to buy thulr
grain Instead of going to Chicago. The
Milwaukee has alone and single-handed
won this fight for the west and has forced
the lines east of Chicago to accept a re
duction of their revenues for hauling this
grain, which will now have an equal
ehunco via Baltimore as via the Gulf ports.
We had to show our ability to haul the
stuff and had to make that rate from
Kansas City to get this business. Hut
Omaha hnn not been hurt in the least."
ftrnln Exchange Resolutions.
Following are the resolutions adopted
by the Omaha Grain cxcliuntfo board of
directors, above referred to:
Whereas. The Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Vaul Railway company on the lMh of
iH-cember istied a tariff on grain making
a rate of 15 cents per I'M pounds from
Kansas City to Baltimore and 18 cents
from Omaha to t) more on corn, unci
Whereas, It has been, and is customary
lor eastern lines to make the same rate
from Omaha to eastern markets and ter
minal on merchandise, Krain and live
stock and oilier farm products, and
Whereas. A difference of 3 cents per WO
pounds lias, and Is diverting large quanti
ties if grain naturally tributary to Omaha,
tlierefors. be it
Resolved. That such a difference of rate
In favor of Kansas City 1 an unpardon
able discrimination against Omaha in gen
eral, anil the Omaha, grain market In r
tlcuhir, and deserves the severest censure
of all citizens of Omaha who have Its
best interests at heart, and we earnestly
rnpiest all other roads reaching this citv
and all merchants nnd others interested iii
the grain market of this city to assist In
our efforts to change this rate announced
by the Milwaukee road, which Is a dis
crimination against the Omaha grain mar
ket. And be it further
Resolved. That a copy of this resolution
bo sent to the agent of the Chicago, Mil
waukee ft St. Paul Railway company with
the request that tills discrimination men
tioned be ut once done nwav with, nr re
taliatory measures will at once lie adopted.

Jerome K. Jerome has a high regard
for Germans. In both his interviews und
platform talks he has been throwing pretty
little bunches of flora at the Germans.
Last evening at tho Lyric, he sang t.he
praises of the Teutons In a humorous
skit. In which he recited some of his ex
periences in Dresden.
The Jeromo-Loomls recltul at the Lyric,
under the auspices of the Omaha Woman's
club, was a treat for those who appreci
ate humor which will stand analysis;
humor which flows gently In on the sensi
bilities us the morning light brings forth
the day. There is a warmth a touch of
human life In the Jerome humor that dis
sipates tho mental clouds and leaves sun
shine and pleasant recollections in Its
. Mr. Jerome's humor Is not as spasmodic
as most of the Amurlcan brand, yet he
happily reaches the hearts of his Amerl
cun listeners by having a keen apprecia
tion of his Yankee cousins, and in iils
tulks gives a forceful Illustration of the
fuct that it is not such a far cry after
all from American to British humor.
Considerable interest was manifested last
evening in the personality of the English
humorist -author himself, this being his
first visit to this country, notwithstand
ing the fact that several of his books
struck a responsive chord In the Ameri
can mind and purse some years ago. As
a platform speaker Mr. Jerome Is not
above criticism, yet there Is a something
In what he says and how he says It that
reaches the heart and arouses the risibili
ties. Oharls Battell I.oomla, already one of
the recognized humorists of this country,
has a distinctively original style In the
rendition of his own humor. lie read sev
eral selections from his "I've Been Think
ing" and "Minerva's Maneuvers." Ap
pearing bs he does with Mr. Jerome an
excellent opportunity is offered to Judge
of the difference between contemporaneous
American and Knglish humor. Mr.
Loomls' dialect stories were well received.

Wednesday morning a new question under
the scavenger tag law. The city has
started suit against the county to have
turned into the city treasury something
like alleged to thave been collected
by County Treasurer Fink on delinquent
city taxes. The county treasurer and
county attorney maintain the money col

treasury to pay the necessary coat of doing
the work involved under the provisions of
the state law. They hold the county must
get Its coets somewhere and that the money

bnt (vnrlaalnn le 1'lnnUy
After a two hours' discussion last night
before the Board of Fire and ToUre Com
missioners between Elmer 12. Thomas, at
torney for the Civic Federation, and the
attorneys for the a.loon keepers against
whom protests had been' tiled. It was finally
agreed that the testimony heretofore taken
In the cases on the matter of selling liquor
on Sundays, should apply to all of the
other saloons protested and no further
testimony on this particular point should
he taken. Tonight the board will meet
again to hear the special protests against
those saloon keepers who will have tlou
Bppllcatlons completed by that time. Sat
urday morning at 10:3l the board will meet
to puss upon the bids for hose.
Previous to taking up the license matter,
the board bought two patrol wagons from
the Karbach Automobile company lor
11,610. The wagons are to be covered and
electrlo lighted and on the same order
as those now In use In Chicago.
"Testimony" Ilather Than "Facta."
The discussion between the attorneys
over the stipulation to be made came about
over the use of the words "facts" or "tes
timony." Mr. Thomas wanted it stipulated
that the facts In the cases heard should
apply to the cases to be heard, while the
other attorneys said the word testimony
should be used Instead of facts. This lat
ter proposition was finally agreed to, It
being stated that tho detectives employed
by Mr. Thomna would testify that one or
the other of them had bought liquor In
each of the saloons on a Sunday.
A blanket protest was filed by John Ber
ger against the granting of a license to
any of the saloons which are supplied with
beer from the Willow Springs brewery.
Mr. Berger stated in his protest that each
of these saloons was desecrating the Amer
ican flag by selling beer with a wrapper
on the bottle upon which was a representa
tion of the flag.

John Tuthill, against whom two Clvlo
Federation detectives brought charges, ul
leglng that he conducted a disorderly sa

board, including about everybody who did
business within a block of his saloon,

lllral Associations Have ot Been
Able to Restore the torn
moner'a Crown.
The two rival associations In Lexington,
Ky., seeking the honor and glory of re
placing the head on the statue of Henry
Clay, which was destroyed by a stroke of
lightning two years ago, have made little
progress on account of the indifference of
the public.
The first and original movement started
to secure funds by popular subscription
was inaugurated by Mrs. Louisiana Ulb
son Muxfield on behalf of the local chapter
of the Daughters of the American Revolu
tion, of which she Is the regent. Mrs. Max
field's movement and suggestions regard
ing the replacing of the head on the
statue of the great commoner seemed to
meet with the approval of people from all
parts of the union, and she received many
letters congratulating her upon her noble
and praiseworthy efforts toward such a
cause. But. before any definite steps could
be taken, people lost Interest.
Seeing what seemed to be unwarranted
delay on the part of Mrs. Maxlleld and
the Daughters of the American Revolution,
Congressman O. A. Stanley of Henderson,
Ky., organized an association to carry out
the work and circular letters and postal
cards have been sent out to people
throughout the state In an effort to revive
Interest In the cause, but so far the move
ment of this association, too, seems to
have been a failure, as contributions have
not come In as fant as the promoters had
hoped for. It looks now as though It will
be Impossible to replace the head by pub
lic subscription.
As soon as It became known that Con
gressman Stanley had formed an associa
tion for the purpose of securing funds to
repair the statue, Mrs. Max field was asked
if Mr. Stanley had formed an association
to co-operate with ber. and she said em
phatically that he had not. nor had he
even consulted her In the matter. She
was greatly surprised that the Idea ad
vanced by herself and the Daughters of
the American Revolution had been taken
by another and an association similar In
every respect to hers formed without her
knowledge and consent.
She wrote to Congressman Stanley for
an explanation and to ascertain "why he
had attempted to take the hnnni and glory
away from th Daughters of the American
Revolution, when she felt that It rightfully
belonged to them," but so far Congress
man Stanley has not replied to the com
