Indloatlona ar th Burlington railroad
will ba on th carpet cln (or lta aotlon
in auspending the enforcement of the aew
demurrage rulea until October U. Such a
etorm of protest waa ralaed asalnst the
enforcement of these new rulea that some
of the Kaneaa City ltnea took the Initiative
and auspended them until October 15. The
Burlington, to protect the Interesta of
Omaha, Friday gave notice the rulea would
j-iot be enforced In thla territory.
Word waa received from Kanaaa City
Saturday that the Interstate Commerce
eommiaslon had taken a band and asked by
what authority the rules were suspended.
Most of the car aervlos associations made
a ruah and got out new rulea In regular
form and had them filed before August K.
when the new rate law went Into effect.
. . The commission now takes the position the
rules cannot be changed without the re-
, quired notice the asms as a change la any
other tariff rates. Sines the Intervention
of the Interstate Commerce commission at
Kanaaa City Burlington officials are ex
pecting like notice in their case.
Jaaes Canaol It That Way.
Although the announcement was made
' by General Freight Agent Spens of ' the
suapenaioa of the operation of the rules,
X. C. Jones, manager of the Wsstern Car
Service association, claims bs can put no
such Interpret st Ion ' oa the dispatch re
eelved by tilm In reference to tha eaae. He
has wired to Chicago for further instruc
tions, Mr. Spens being out of ths city.
The whols demurrage situation, as well
a tha rats and tarlS aituatlon, are about
aa clear as mud to a layman. In fact. It
would be a wonder If a shipper or an out-
j alder could get hesd or tail out of ths
Situation whsn scarcely two railroad attor
neys can agree on aa Interpretation of the
The new rats law waa designed aa a
benefit to tha shippers end to atop all forma
at aUserimlnaUoa. From - tba oomplalats
which are flowing In every day one would
think ao me obnoxious laws bad been de
signed by the railroads to harass the
shippers. Buch Is practically the case, for
the railroads have placed every hard In
terpretation on the new laws possible and
are trying to make It as hard on shippers
as possible .
WRONG MAN GETS LETTERS

Harry Jordan of the Byron Reed oom
pany has been embarrassed In no slight
degree lately by receiving letters evidently
Intended for another man of the same
name. They were addressed to general de
livery, but as no one called for them, they
were delivered at the office of the Byron
Reed company. One, which was written
In Tezss, ssld it wai too bad Harry bad
not been there, aa the writer had "got
next" to a man with alx 0 gold pieces,
but had been unable, without a "pal," to
connect with the goods. Other "snaps"
wliich be could not handle because be hsd
no "pal" were mentioned by the man In
Texaa. Another letter from the aame hand
came from Oklahoma and Indicated that
Harry had written asking the aouthern
man If any county falra were to be held
In Oklahoma thla fall where tbey could
work their "graft," He replied, saying
there were no fairs, but the Woodmen
would have a street fair where "pickings"
would be easy.
Mr. Jordan baa given the letters into
the keeping of the police department.

No Bids Yet Received from Rival Gas
Coaeeras in Acceptance of ,
the City Co a noil's 1st.
Mayor Dahlman at next Tuesday even
ing's meeting of the city council will in
troduce an ordinance to regulate the price
of gas in Omaha at fl or less per 1,000 cublo
feet. This action on the part of tbe mayor
Is to carry out that part of the democratic
platform referring to the gas aituatlon and
on' which the party stood at the city elec
tion. Saturday morning the mayor consulted
City Attorney Burnsm with a view to hav
ing the proposed ordinance drawn. The
mayor stated he would Introduce the ordi
nance at the next council meeting. If the
measure goes through it will fix the price
of gas at a rate not to exceed 11, of which
so much was heard during the last city
The seventh clause of the platform to
which the mayor pledged himself before
We pledge the mayor and city council. If
the democratic candidates are elected, to
provide st an early dale gas at a dollar or
less for the people of Omaha, and in view
of the existing contract with the gas com
pany, which remains In force until ll,
this pledge binds the mayor and council
to the extent, if necessary, of establishing
a municipal gas plant or procuring gas
from an independent company unless I he
present company concedes die reduction
Two weeks ago ths council adopted a
concurrent resolution inviting parties to
petition the council for a gas franchise
and to serve tbe product at fl or less, tbe
resolution stating that tbe Omaha Gas com
pany had been repeatedly requested to re
duce their rates, but had refused.
Up to date no bids have been received
at the city hall from parties wishing to
serve the city with dollar gas.
