BAN FRANCISCO, April .-The second
Sabbath since the fateful April 18 has
served aa a rlearlnr house in the affair
of this ruined city. While the old-time
quietude it missing-, the day has witnessed
les of the excitement, confusion and
clamor of its immediate predecessors and
the community at large ha been enabled
tn malt a calmer airvev of the Situation
and to enter Into a more Intelligent and
rational prrnnntlon lor the future.
All possible work was auspended for the
day, and the tired officials, who for nearly
two weeka have labored Incessantly, with
little sleep, to bring semblance of order
out of chaotio conditions, took advantage
of the lull to secure greatly needed rest
and to pay some attention to pressing
With the advent of the Sabbath came an
opportunity to review the tremendous ac
complishment of the lust eleven days to
provide remedies In the defects in the task
of Judiciously caring for all clas.ea of the
destitute. Irrespective of race or creed.
Plans for solving the tremendous financial
problems that confront the city begnn, to
day to assume tangible form and Sunday
closed with the brightest prospect that lias
faced Ban Francisco since three-fourths of
Its territory waa laid waste,
Arrar to Distribute Belief.
Probably the most Important development
of Uie day was the promulgation by Qen
eral Greeley of his plan for the dlstrlbu
tlon of relief supplies. Reports of theft.
deception, misappropriation, waste and ex
travagance have been constantly received
since provisions and clothing began pour
ing In to succor the afflicted, and It Is no
believed that misuse of supplies will here
after be Impossible.
In the first daya of the lire little or no
attempt was made to keep check on food
stuffs, the main Idea being to provide
against want, and It la natural thai under
this excusable haphaxard order of affairs
many abuses should arise. But even when
the linea were more tightly drawn un
scrupulous persons continued to take ad
vantage of the general distress and It was
tht-n realised that the salvation of the
sit nation, rested with- the army.' Bo the
ofBrlals of this branch of the federal gov
eminent were called upon to engage In an
unprecedented service. That success will
doubtless meet their efforts may be In.
ferretl from the completeness of the plan
of General Oreeley. The unturned part of
the city will be divided Into seven dl
trlcts In charge of army officers, who will
assume control of all the relief stations now
Responsible civilians will be Installed un
der salary at the substations for the pur
pose of clerical work and dally records and
checks will be kept. It is declared that the
period of extreme distress has passed and
at the earliest possible moment the issue
of rations mutt be confined to helpless
women and children and refused to -adult
males, unless they are sick or In enfeebled
condition. Issues of luxuries or articles of
special diet will be confined to infants and
Invalids. Rigid economy 1 enjoined upon
any officer engaged In relief work. In each
of the seven districts there will be 100. ta.
tlons. The amount of food to be allowed
each person, with latitude for certain con
ditlons, la specified, and the allowance Is
based on the arrry ration.
Plaa to Secure Foods.
At the meeting today at which were pres.
ent Jamei P. Phelnn, chairman of the
finance committee, and some noted lawyers
and banke'iB, a plan was broached for
financing the city, which it Is hoped will
meet with the endorsement of the general
committee. It being estimated that the city
has suffered a loss if at least $-O,OO.Oo0 by
fire, it is considered that there Is not suf
flclent money In San Francisco to recon.
struct the city and that the people here
must look elsewhere for fundi to rehabtll
tat their destroyed fortunes.
Mr.' Fhelan aald that if the money Is
borrowed through ordinary channels, the
rate of Interest will add a burden t
necessarily increased taxation that will
be too heavy to bear. The plan of Mr.
Phelan la to frame legislation to preset!
to congress asking the United States to
endorse the proposed bond of Ban Fran
cisco. Wtth this guarantee of the govern
ment, the city will be able to go Into the
financial market of the world and borrow
the needed money at 2 to 2V per cent, the
bonds to run for fifty years and conatttut
a mortgage on the best portion of the city.
Mr. Phelan asserted that such legislation
would not be new in congress. It was by
virtually such measures that the Central
Pacific and Union Pacific railroads were
built, and more recently by like legislation
that railroad In the Philippines became as
sured to the people of the Islands.
The work of furnishing the necessities of
life to the homeless and needy continues
with more system and with unabated
energy, but desplj the care of the officials
at the heads of the bureau complaint are
reported of oversight in supplying ta
tions, but these error are quickly recti
fled. Tomorrow the Red Cross people ex
pect to have their Individual ticket system
in operation and this will facilitate the
plans ef the army In preventing abuses,
skelter for Practically All.
The number of people without substantial
ahelier has been reduced to a minimum.
The housing committee reported today that
us work had been almost completed, the
applications for accommodations havin,
used. The work of this committee ha
uven lessened by the numerous departure
of people In teal to other part of the
mate. Religious service were held In the
open air In many of the saved district
today and In churches that were pro
nuunced aaf for Immediate use throng
gathered to listen to the sermons of the

the determination of the officials to bring
about a restoration of the old order of

WASHINGTON, April I'S.-Railroad rate
legislation continues to hold first place
in the United States senate. There are
three or four more general speeches to be
made on the bill and when the last one
of them shall have been heard, If not be
fore, there will be an agreement upon a
time for taking the final vote. This Is ex
pected to be about May 10. So far official
notice has been given of only two more
speeches. They will be made by Senator
Clark of Arkansas, who will speak Mon
day, and by Senator Daniel, who will be
heard Tuesday. It is possible that Senators
Rayner and Frasler and even others will
desire to be heard, so that a considerable
portion of the present week will be de
voted to general discussion. By common
consent several days will be consumed in
considering amendments under the rule
limiting speeches to ten minutes. The
Intention la to give a week to conslderaton
of the bill under that rule, and as this con
sideration will necessarily be postponed
until the close of the general debate,
the effect may be to delay the final vote,
but not for more than a few days at most.

Senator Tillman's. Intention is to ask
for unanimous consent to vote on a day
to be named, an 1 'then If this is secured
to allow the senate to decide for Itself
how much time It will devote to amend
ments. So far about seventy amendments
have been suggested, but It is not expected
that a great many of them will be seriously
considered. Attention will be concentrated
largely upon the court review question.
Senator generally say that some kind of
review provision is probable, but predic
tions as to which of them will be chosen
range all the way from Senator Long'
to Senator Foraker's suggestion. It Is
rlalmed that there will be a solid republican
vole against Senator Bailey's nonsuspen
Program of the House.
The real legislative work of the national
house of representatives on the agricul
tural appropriation bill will begin this week.
The general debate on this measure took a
wider range and occupied considerable more
time than had been expected. Tho two
sides of the tariff question were laid be.

regarding the bill, although it remained
before the house throughout the week.

Speaker Cannon has received more ap

When the first archblshon of TU.lt Imnra
100 years ago, laid the cornerstone of the
church, he laid, we may truly say. th
foundation upon which the church of
America was to rise to its full and glorious
height. For, whether we consider the
ever-Increasing number of priests ordained

ties or the solemn ecclesiastical functions
that It has witnessed, all have happily

Hence we deem it worthy of our highest
approval that you propose to commemorate
witn general rejoicing so signal an event.
We need not tell you what sentiments of
good will and of heartfelt Interest we share
in this celebration. You are all aware that
we have always most ardently sought and
are now equally eager to adopt whatsoever
may avail to enhance the honor of our re
ligion among the American people. Our
eagerness herein Is the greater because we
are sure that you will respond with common
accord and endeavor to the invitation which
we, prompted by the memory of what you
have accomplished for religion, extend you
on this timely and Joyous occasion In urging
the American people to still greater efforts
In behalf of our catholic faith.
Right Joyously, then, we express our
wishes for the prosperity of your churches
and the success of this centenary observ
ance. At the same time, as a pledge of
heavenly graces and a token of our deep
affection, we impart most lovingly our apos
tolic benediction to you, tne Dishops, the
clergy and the whole American people.

ILLEGAL WORK EXTENDS TO OTHER PARTS
Republicans Assert Democrats Mean

of Arrest Will Be Beady
Conclusive evidence of election frauds
on the largest scale ever known in Omaha
waa disclosed by the registration Satur
day. Detectives and volunteer cttlxens. work
ing under the direction of the republican
city committee Sunday, canvassed the
residences given by men suspected of hav
ing registered illegally and discovered
hundreds of fictitious addresses. The Il
legal registration is said to have been
chiefly In the Third ward, but was found
to have beon crevalent In the Second and
Tenth wards and In the Fifth precinct of
the Ninth ward as well, besides having
extended to ether wards In small propor
Three Hundred and Fifty In Third.
A. II. Burnett, a member of the republi
can executive committee, said:
"In the Third ward alone we have dis
covered something like 350 Instances of
registration of persons who cannot be
found at the addresses given. There are
hundreds In other wards and we are still
prosocutlng the effort to run down every
case of Illegal registration. There Is no
doubt whatever that a desperate attempt
has been concocted to win this election
for the democrats by foul means. The
character of the registration shows be
yond a doubt that Benson should carry
the city by from 2,000 to 3.500 votes. We
have made careful arrangements to arrest
every man Illegally registered when ho at
tempts to vote. The warrants will bo Is
sued Monday by the county attorney's of
fice and deputy sheriffs will be on hand
at the polling places in every precinct to
arrest the fraudulent registered persons
when they appear. The names used will
be thosa of men registered who cannot bo
located in Omaha.
Agents Jo Ont In Pairs.
"Our plan consisted of sending reliable
men out In pair with quantities of circu
lar addressed to names we suspected
were fraudulently entered. In the Third
ward the registration total was about 850.
Our agents worked hard Sunday and at 6
o'clock had discovered about 350 instances
where the men could not be found. Va
cant lots, business houses and even the
middle of railroad yards were Included In
the addresses given. Where a house stood
at the number the Inmates declared they
knew of no such persons as the names
registered. One man gave his address as
the Barker hotel, a house that has not
been doing business for several years and
which was. converted into a wholesale
implement establishment. These are fair
Illustrations of the frauds exposed."
F. K. Buckmlnster, the Chicago detec

hired by the republicans to prevent fraud
on the part of the deomcrat say that
at least 200 non-residents registered Sat

Over Six Thousand Total.
The total number registering Saturday
with three precincts missing Is 6,618. It is
estimated that at least half of these were
transfer from one ward or precinct to an
other. Counting these In an estimate of
3,500 new registrations Is made, which is
considered very large. Sunday evening the
books of the Second precinct of the Third
ward, the Fifth of the Ninth and the
First of the Twelfth had not J2.een returned
to the city clerk. The missing precinct In
the Third wa said to have accumulated
271 registrations, which would make a total
of 846 In this ward, or nearly 100 more than
any other ward in the city. This fact wa
pointed to a another bit of circumstantial
evidence pointing towards fraud.
City Clerk Elbourn, his regular, office
force and about half a doxen special as
sistantsall he could hire worked all day
Sunday bringing the office copies of the
registration books up to date In accordance
with the Saturday revision. The task will
not be completed until today.

lion fence between the tracks and the '
camp, e.-pn d a youth whom lie Instantly
claimed us his son, who ran away from
home at Fremont six yiars ago and waa
last hen rd of n year hk in California. Tho
youth in iiu.stion gave his name as Arthur
Lucas, lately of 4S7 l'erry street, San Fran
cisco, and now en route to an iinelo at Dav
enport, la. The young man stoutly denied
any relationship to Knutson nnd gave dates
and other Information to establish his luen
tliy. Al h nKlh the man and youth parted,
the latter taking the matter as a Joke,
while Knutson turned sorrowfully away
and prosucd through the curious crowd.
Wo a n on H mi a father.
The mutter was lirst brought to the at
tention of young Lucas Saturday afternoon,
when Mrs, Warren SI I bolt of 25(il BurdcHo
strcit accosted Lucas and declared him to
ho Alfred Knutson, who ran away from
Fremont six years ago. Lucas at once de
nied the allegation, but the woman said she,
knew the. Knutson boy for many year as
a neighbor and could not be fooled. Mrs.
Ktllinlt then went went away, to return
Sundry ufternoon with her friend, Jen
Knutson. Mrs. Stlbnlt told the man to look
around the camp and pick out the boy for
himself, and sure enough Knutson picked
young I.uciiS out of tho crowd after a min
ute's survey of the faces.
Iietectlves Maloney and Pruminy and sev
eral Red' Cross attaches became interested
in tho inaiter and effected a meeting of the
man and youth. Kuutson's face waei visibly
a fleeted, but the youth showed no signs of
"I know that is my boy Just ss sure as I
know- I am living or standing on thin
ground." declared Knutson when ques
tioned. "Those eyes, that face, the teeth-
why, I know he is my boy," continutd Knut
Hut Still the Hoy Maya Xary.
But Lucas told his lire story and said
Knutson surely must bo mistaken. Lucas
said he was born at Harlan, la., and re
membered going to his naither's funeral
when ho was 6 years of age. He remem- '
hcred his mot tier telling him his father
dii'd when ho was a year old. Hla
mother wna burled at Mount View ceme
tery, Oakland. At the time of the earth
tinko Lucas was living with his cousin,
Tin. mas Williams, at the address mentioned.
Lucas aroused ihe cousin from a deep
slumber and escaped from the house shortly
before tho cousin was killed. Lucas said
he Ih now on hla way to Pavenport, la.,
whero hla uncle, Frank William, resides.
Asked for the address of the uncle In
Davenport l.urus said ho could not remem
ber the address, and questioned a to the
last recollection of that relative the youth
said it was on an occasion when the uncle
scut him u 10 bill.
Knutson said his lost son wa born In
Denmark and would be 19 year of uge If
living now. Lucaa said he would be 19
net SeptemlM-r. Knutson now live In
Omaha. His wife, from whom he separated,
resides at Fremont.
At the conclusion of the Interview be
tween Knutson and Lucaa yesterday after
noiai the man said: "Well, I can't make
him own me If he does not want to. I
know 1 I. ave seen my son and I guess the
best thing to do Is to let him go 111 way."
There was a striking similarity of fea
tures when Knutson and Lucaa WKS
