ICE TRUST INVITES A WAR
Dtiwi Attention of County and City Lecal
Departments to Its Tactics.
SLABAUGH RESUMES HIS INVESTIGATION
Mayor Duhlmun Saaaeats the Mild
Method of Thrsnlit Driver la
Jail, lee la Cotter and
County Attorney Slabaugh Is busy look.
Ing up the law In connection with the
refusal of the Omaha Ice and Storage
company to deliver' Ice to Mrs. C. L.
Ransom and to Mrs. C. W. Eckerman, who
testified In police court against that com
pany and who held one of that company's
coupon hooka which had been duly paid
for. Mr. Slabaugh Is not yet prepared
to say Juat what he will be able to do
In the way of prosecution. He aald he
wanted to be sure of his grounds before
proceeding. As to there being any Ice
trust, he repeated his former statement
that up to date he has not enough evi
dence to warrant a conviction on that
score, and Juat what can be done with
a company which refuses to sell Its
product to a former patron, Is also an
open question, he declared.
Mayor Dahlman wHI cause condign pun
ishment to be visited upon the Ice com
pany which repeats the offense of refusing
to sell ice to any one customer who has
been short-weighted and appears against
the company in police court. The mayor's
remedy Is to throw the driver In Jail, de
stroy the Ice and break up the wagon.
If the people are prompt In telephoning
him of the cases and the police are real
shifty In getting to the place before, tho
drivers get away some real results may
be obtained and the Ice question become
a back issue.
Dahlman's View of It.
The mayor's statement dictated Saturday
"Sometime ago I had an ordinance pre
pared and Introduced which was passed by
the council and became a law, making
It a penalty for any one who refused to
give ful weights of anything sold to the
consumer. A few days ago C. W. Ecker
man and C. L. Ransom, both cltisens of
Omaha, filed complaint against a certain
Ice company for failing to give them the
number of pounds of Ice they paid for.
They were prosecuted by the city prosecutor
and convicted and fined. They appealed the
case, which they had a right to do. But
after this trial they refused to deliver les
to these people. They complained to me.
I took the matter up with Assistant City
Attorney Dunn, and had him Investigate
the laws to fee whether there was any
way that we could compel these people to
furnish Ice to those that were willing to
pay for tt. He did not find anything on the
statute books that covered cases of this
kind, but he was of the opinion from
other Investigations made, that there might
be a case made against these people under
the anti-trust law. This would mean a long
and hard tie'-U and by that time the ice
season would be over. 80 I have concluded
to adopt this remedy: That hereafter when
people complain of being short-weighted
on ice In the city of Omaha and will file
a complaint the same will be prosecuted by
the city prosecutor without cost to them
snd, if convicted, and they then refuse to
furnish the people thst make complaint
Ice, If they have the money to pay tor It,
and will telephone me, I will Instruct the
chief of police to send a policeman out
there and take charge of the driver, wagon
and Ice, and I will further Instruct him to
throw the driver In Jail, throw the Ice
In the gutter and smash the wagon.
"I hope that the men engaged in the Ice
business will not force me to take any
action of this kind, but I will promise them
now that we will try it once and see how It
Slabanarh Wants Testimony.
County Attorney Slabaugh, In his Investi
gation ot the case, s endeavoring to get
hold of Douglas Armour, the man who
struck out from the employ of the John
Doe concern with a wagon of his own and
began selling Ice at 40 cents a hundred.
Armour made bold declarations about what
he would do and tell, but now he has
dropped from public view. The fact is he is
out of business, according to his partner
snd according to the people in Dundee
and the West Farnam street whom he sup
plied with ice. He has not been around for
over a week and these people, most of
them, are patronising the Ryan company,
which has not gone quite to the limit of the
trust prices. Armodr bought his Ice, as a
matter of fact, from the People's Ice com
pany at IS a ton. At the same time others
were getting it from the same concern at
tt a ton. One ot the firm was asked one
day why Armour had to pay more and
this was the reply:
"He is talking too much to The Bee. We
have to fine him Just SI a ton for breaking
Into print. If he would keep still he could
get tt for $4 a ton, too."
Armour's friends say he could not stand
prosperity, though had he kept his head
be might have reaped a rich harvest, for
"things were coming his way." Before he
quit, however, he raised from 40 to SO cents
a hundred, saying the people who were
supplying him bad raised.
HOW THE FIRES START
Smokers Mora Careless Than Children
In I'slntf Matches Holiday
Fewer fires are caused by children play
ing with matches than by careless smokers,
who throw away burning matches after
lighting cigars, pipes, or cigarettes. ThU
la what the official figures show, as they
appear In the report of the fire commis
sioner. Where only 244 children In all
Greater New York caused fires by amusing
themselves with matches and flame, 401
cigar, cUarette, and pipe smokers almost
twice as many accomplished the same un
There are lessons for the housekeeper as
well as the householder In the compara
tive showing of the various causes for
fires, as stated in the report. To the credit
of the smoker be It said that, on a basis
of the estimated smoking poppulatlon of
the metropolis, only one man In about 4.000
sets things afire. Yet, out of every hun
dred Ores, the firemen have laid the blame
of at least five at the door of the careless
devotee of nicotine. Perhaps there Is some
consolation for the smoker In the fact that
one person In 600 Is credited with starling
one of the 7,750 (Ires which occurred In 1906.
In the household, the range, furnace, and
heating pipes are shown to be well worth
watching. From stoves alone 611 fires are
reported to have sprung, and done some
$100,000 worth of damage. Chimney fires,
from defective flues snd similar causes,
formed almost per cent of all the fires,
while sparks from stoves, stove-pipes and
chimneys caused I per cent more.
Mora than ( per cent of all the fires In
the city, the records show, were due to the
use of gas In one form or another. Of
these almost half were "curtain fires,"
caused by the blowing of curtains against
Jets. Lamps were responsible for a little
more than I per cent of all the Area, and
candles a trifle over I per cent. Leas than
1 per cent were caused by elect rlo wiring
for lights, power, and heat; only 76 of the
7,760 fires being reported as due to electri
cal sources. Only 26 fires are credited to
the gnawing mouse and the match.

next to the lesst cause for fires, vis.,

ANOTHER WEBSTER LETTER
InpabtUhed Playful Epistle Written
by the Great Daniel In Ills
The Boston Transcript reproduces two
heretofore unpublished letters of Daniel
Webster, one of which, under dato of No
vember 30, 1804, was written to Thomss W.
Thompson, Esq., Salisbury, N. H., snd ad
dress in Webster's own youthful hand
writing. This was before the day of en
velopes or postage stamps, and the letter
contains the name of the person addressed
only on Its outer side. The other, a de
cidedly playful letter, was written earlier
the same yesr and addressed to Miss Ellen
Thompson of Newburyport.
After Daniel Webster's graduation from
college In 11 he studied In the law office
of Mr. Thompson, but needing funds he In
terrupted this study to teach In the aca
demy at Fryeburg. Me., for some months.
He did not go to Boston to study for ad
mission to the bsr till 104, when he left
Salisbury "for the last time." I. ., as a
place of residence. He refers in the play
ful letter to this fact; snd the letter, writ
ten In 1804 (to Mr. Thompson of Salisbury),
asking for a certificate, 'etc., shows that
in this sense he had then left Salisbury for
the last time." This Indicates that the two
letters were written about the name time,
that Is, one in July and the other In No
vember of tbe same year. Mr. Webster
was not married until four years later.
These letters came Into the possession of
Mr. Parker Noyes, whose first wife was
Miss Ellen Thompson, to whom the more
playful epistle wss addressed.. Mr. Noyes,
owing to HI health, retired early In life
from the practice of law to his farm in
FrankJIn, n. H., where for many years he
was the neighbor, as well as the friend,
of Mr. Webster, whose farm In Franklin
Is now a state orphanage. The letters
have come down In the family of Mr.
Noyes, and are now In the possession of a
grand niece of his second wife. Miss Har
riet McEwen Kimball, who now resides
in Portsmouth, N. H.
The letter to Miss Thompson reads:
El.en: ,U,y 12th'

to forgive me for detaining the enclosed
I. ln mv hands a whole fortnight 7
What do you think has been the cause of
this? Negligence or accident? or was it
done on purpose to give me an opportunity
of writing this by way of apology T Form

Well. Ellen, I am a free, single, untied
man again. I have passed thro' the whole
drama of matrimony, & must say, on the

to apply to Mabel, Elen & Phebe to get

did not appear to look round on E. A.
as her abiding place. At Fryeburg I was
told by such as I suppose knew, that
It was quite certain that she was to be

Tomorrow I leave here for Boston, &

thousand disagreeable things about it, has
a strong hold on the heart. The regret
which I feel on this removal is not a
little heightened by the consideration that
it puts It more out of my power to culti
vate the acquaintance of the Newbury
P. folks. I always wish to nurture -every
little plant of friendship which offers. In
time, to produce pleasant fruit. But 'tis
the misfortune of our kind, often to be
removed from the opportunity of cherish
ing a begun much valued acquaintance.
I never think of this allotment of human
nature without sighing. Mr. Mrs. Thomp
son & children are all In good health.

be such a person, I believe he Is very well.

Plan for Removal Con Armed.
The board by unanimous vote confirmed

boarding house, where they may exist with
all the comfort of home, aa It is put ln the

they have time ln plenty and strength as
