.UcKeen Motor far anil Suburban
OMAHA, April 13.-To the Editor of The
nee: The Bee's urtlelc on thn MeKeen
motor and Vice President Mohler's policy
and plan to develop suburban business
along the Union Pacific lines wua correct.
Mud the importance of tho matter to
Omaha could not be easily overstated.
Mr. Mohler himself Is authority for The
life's statement. As to Seymour Park's
interest in the matter, Mr. Mohler'a atten
tion was called to It in a conversation I
hud with him a month or so ago, and It so
fur arrested his attention as to lead to In
quiry about It. The subject passed from
my mind until Mr. McEathron, my own en
gineer, told me that the Vnion Pacific en
gineers hud run three lines to the southern
end of Seymour lake from t lie Lano cut
oft, a distance of one and one-half miles.
Knowing that Mr. Mohler (or having heard,
rather.) was In search of a loeatlon for
Mi-Keen car shops outside the city. In an
informal way I suggested to him a location
on a few acres of land on the extreme
southern point of the Seymour Park prop
erly. These acres are remote from and are
In no way connected with the high slopes,
forests and glens of Seymour Park proper,
which is to be I, eld exclusively for the fu
ture summer homes ind permanent homes
of the people of Omaha und Sooth Omaha
who may desire them.

Commercial Club Commissioner Goei to
Washington on Freieht Rates.
OMAHA MUST HAVE LOWER SCHEDULES
tannic to Secure Redress from Rail
road a, Hriort Is Made to the In
state' t nmmerce tommlaalon
Records at the Capital.
Commissioner K. J. McVann of thK'om-
mercial club left lust night for Wash
ington, where he will-examine the records
of the Interstate Commerce commission for
Information needed by the club In Its en
deavor to secure a reduction of rates from
Omaha to South Dakota poinU. The rail
roads have refused to allow the club to
see the tariffs on freight from Floux City
to South Dakota existing prlcr to Wi,
when the rates were lowered for Sioux City
nd were left unchanged for Omaha. This
makes necessary a trip to Washington.
Mr. McVann expects to return April 21.
"Everybody connected with the Com
mercial club knows tho Milwaukee has
promised to adjust the freight rates to the
north to the entire satisfaction of the Com
mercial club." said a prominent official
of the Milwaukee road. "A big change In
rates cannot be brought aliout on a
moment's notice and many points along
the line of a big system have to be con
sidered. Our general freight agent and our
third vice president were In Omaha some
time ago and both promised this should be
done ajid the road is now at work on a
rew tariff. The grain rates to Omaha from
South Dakota will also be taken care of."
What McVann lias to Say.
Relative to this statement of tho railroad
man. Mr. McVann said:
"We have received no tariff showing
that cither the Milwaukee or the North
western has reduced the rates from Omaha
to Sioux City to the basis In effect Decem
ber S, l'.)fi. nor have we received any direct
answer from them to the effect that the
reduction would be made. This Is the
principal point of controversy between the
Commercial club and the Milwaukee road.
"As to the rates to South Dakota points.
the refusal of the Milwaukee and the
Northwestern railroads to furnish the club
essential Information necessitates the club
going to the expense and trouble of send
ing me to Washington to obtain the in
formation. Both these roads changed the
rate materially In 19(13 from Chicago, St.
Paul and Sioux City to nearly all points In
South Dakota, and as a matter of right
and justice they should have made the
same changes In the rates from Omaha to
the same points. Instead, they ignored us
and left our rates so high to many points
that they actually exceed the rate to and
from Sioux City. Omaha merchants can
ship to Sioux City and reship to a large
number of points in South Dakota cheaper
than they can ship direct from Omaha to
Spirit of the Milwaukee.
"As to the promises mado by the Milwau
kee, we first took the matter before the
officials of tha; road In September, 1906, and
their manner of handling It has been char
acteriaed ever since by the most unfriendly
spirit. It has been within their power to
make, within any one month, the coirec
Hons we require. Instead of doing this,
they have either ignored our requests alto-
gether or have put us off with Insincere
and garbled statements. In view of these
facts. It Is not surprising that the mer
chants of Omaha want to see the tariffs
embodying these changes, instead of hear
ing promises to Issue these tariffs at some
"It is the purpose of the Individual ship
pers who have been forced to pay the ex
tortlonate advance from Omaha to Sioux
City since December 8 to take the neces
sary legal steps to recover the amounts
so extorted. I have Information to the ef
feet that the Milwaukee railroad In partlc
ular has been making refunds to some
shippers on South Dakota business where
the published tariff exceeded the sum of
the locals through Sioux City. This la ill
ret evidence that their own officials re
gurd their position In this matter as un
tenable, and this evidence will be used
with effect at the proper time."

Men and women alike have to work In
cessantly with brain and hand to hold their
own nowadays. Never were the demands
of business, the wants of the family, the
requirements of society, mure numerous.
The first effect of the praiseworthy effort
to keep up with all these things Is com
monly seen In a weakened or debilitated
condition of the nervous system, which re
sults In dyspepsia, defective nutrition of
both body and brain, and In extreme cases
In complete nervous prostration. It Is
clearly seen that what Is needed Is what
will sustain the system, give vigor and tone
to the nerves and keep the digestive and
.Bsimllatlve functions healthy and active.
From personal knowledge we can recom
mend Hood's Sursaparllla for this purpose.
It acts on all the vital organs, builds up
the whole system and fits men and women
for these high-pressure days.

HARRISON CLARK GIGS BACK
Xegro Retracts statement Unrri
Were Indifferent and Says
They Did Their Best.
"I want to withdraw what I said about
my attorneys." said Harrison Clark, the
negro convicted of the murder of Edward
Flury. Friday morning. "I believe now
they did all they could have done for mo
and I am satisfied I was mistaken before
After the trial closed Clark gave vent
to some bitter remarks about his lawyers,
Hugh Myers and E. R. Ieigh, because
they did not follow his advtce in some
minor details In relation to the conduct
of the case.
"I have talked to several people about it
and I see the jury decided It did every
thing it could have done for me. It can't
be that everybody else thinks that, and
I think the other way, without me being
wrong. I'm sorry I said what I did, be
cause it hurts their reputation, and I don't
want to injure anybody. They are going to
continue in charge of the case and will
carry It up to the supreme court and fight
Clark gave vent to the remarks about
his attorneys to reporters Thursday morn
ing, but later sent word he wunted to
make a new statement. The motion for a
new trial was filed Friday by his attor-

REPUBLICAN CAMPAIGN IS ON
Headquarters Located on Harney

Consumption la a Germ Disease. How
Can It Start with a Coldt
This la a reasonable question and one that
must arise to the mind of almost every
one when the claim la made that consump
tion starts with a cold. The cold simply
prepares the system for the reception and
development of germs of that disease, that
would not otherwise have found lodgement
It la the same with diphtheria, scarlet fever
and measles. They are most likely to be
contracted when the child has a cold.
That l why a cold should never be neg

be relied upon. lis remarkable cures have

Treasurer R. O. Fink Friday was done
by the actual handling and counting of
the cash in the vaults of the big Instltu

would be a good thing to handle the ox

checked against the amounts In favor of
Fink and then the two. anrompanled by

The demand for an actual exhibition of
the cash met with a prompt and courte

ducted Into the vaults and the amounts,
ranging from $120,000 down were counted
out before their eyes In gold, greenbacks,
silver and to the last copper. Incidentally
they were shown millions of Uncle Sam's
money piled high In tha vaults. They
came away impressed with the Idea that
the Omaha banks were all right. No
