PLEA FOR NO BLOODHOUNDS
Protest Offered by Colored Cltlsea oa
This Means of Snpnreaslnaj

At least one cltlsen of Omaha has been
found to oppose the spirit and body of the
Northwest Protective . association organ
ised by citlsens In the northwest part of
the . city, primarily for the suppression of
chicken stealing. '
' Incidentally the association hit up - the
plan of employing two experienced .Vootl
hounds of voracious, appetites aa pne means
of accomplishing their purpose. .
The cltlsen opiKtng ihls organisation U
colored, fie appeared at a meeting of the
Druid Mill Improvement ciuo at. Thirtieth
and Spalding streets Monday night, where
the matter was under consideration.
"I don't approve of any such corporeal
punishment," he said - In ' characteristic
words. "I . don't believe many chickens
have been stolen anyway and it don't seem
right to cast such a stigma upon the good
name of our fair city by giving the Im
pression that any of our citlsens hav to
be protected by bloodhounds. Bloodhounds
are relics of I rbarism; this Is an- en
lightened age. 'Course I don't believe In
stealing chickens, but I tbtnk running down
your neighbor with bloodhounds is bad

" 'Spos dem bloodhounds gets on de trail

then? Let 'em -eat up a Innocent person,

Thomas Ryan proved to be a bogus crip
ple when arrested Monday afternoon by
Detectives Donohoe and Mitchell and taken
to the city Jail for Investigation. An exam
ination of the man proved the arm he Har
ried In a sling was aa sound as any arm
and that the ey he had patched up was In

also assumed for the occasion. When the
detectives told the police Judge their story,
Ryan was Sentenced thirty w ,ys. The

The Mqanre Ileal No. 3.
CHAPXKS TOWN. W. Vs.. March 19 To
the Kdttpr of The Hee:' Thoughtful men.
In legitimate business, will endorse certain
propositions. For example:
1. Rallrnnds should hi' restricted 'to . th
business of a carrier.
2. They should mil compete, nnd competi
tion would not be nteiled If they were
properly reulatrd. '
3. It Is unfortiinnte that the roads Were
not originally so projected that each trunk
line, with Its ff.t.rs, would serve different
territory, each hauling cars from qther
4. If the captains of railroad finance
would co-operute In. good faith merger
und the exchange of bonds and stocks
W'ould enable each, system to get out of'
the other's territory, and congress mav si
legislate that the captain of railroad
finance will co-operate to accomplish e.ich
a result. The outcome would be nationali
sation: vis.,- all roHds unilT a central
manngement. - " ,
B. Railroad revenue should be llinlted to
the amntint resulted for orfeiating expenses
plus interest on eupiial furnished.
In Its present temper the public IS willing
to continue paying 12 per cent oil all The
capital which has ever gone Into railroads,
but the public-is not willing to increase
the amount applicable to interest unless
new and additional capital la actually In
vested. Painstaking ability can wring out
water equitably. It Is practicable to ascer
tain approximately how much Individuals
contributed and how much the public Itself
contributed: towlt, the land, etc.. con
tributed by congress, states, counties and
cities. For example, the roads cost $6,000,
00.000, the public contributed $2,000,000,000,
leaving $4,000,000,000 furnished by individuals.
Tho public should not be milked to. pay

Miners' and Operators' Committees'
Will Meet for Farther Conference.
. NEW TORK, March a). There will be a
conference between the two committees of
seven members each representing the an
thracite coal operators and the miners of
the hard coal districts. This waa decided
upon at a meeting In this city today of tho
committee of operators. Later President
Raer of the Philadelphia '4 Reading rail
road forwarded a letter to President John
Mitchell of the United Mine Workers of
American notifying him that the operators'
committee is willing to meet the miners'
committee at any date Mr. Mitchell shall
select. President Bacr's letter is In reply
to a communication from President Mitch
ell In which the leader of the miners ex
pressed disappointment because the oper
ators' committee had rejected the demands
of the miners before calling their committee
Into conference. Mr. Mitchell Uvn asked
for another conference. In reply Mr. Baer
says that the operators fully expected to
have another conference with the miners
and asserts that President Mitchell has not
replied to a counter proposition made to hlut
by the operators' committee to the effect
that the miners allow the present conditions
Mr. Baer says the operators believe that
nothing can be done now to Improve exist
ing conditions, which are as favorable to
the miners of the anthracite region as It Is
possible to make them. The date of the
meeting Is left to the miners to fix.
