City Temporarily Enjoined from Enforoine

by Aitllntlou of Certain
the gss company has already been exeess
Ively taxed, that the city, council has fixed
the Ftundnrds of meters to be used, which
will necessitate the removal of the present
meters used by the gas consumers of
the city, "thereby involving the company In
another ruinous expense;" that "all of these
arbitrary actions on the part of the city
council and officials of the city of Lincoln
are designed to Impair the credit of the
gas company." and that to reduce the price
of gas to l per 1,000 cubic feet brings It
below the cost of production.
Hullcck F. Ruse, attorney for the Lincoln
Gas and Electric Light company, secured a
lcstraining order In the I'nlted States cir
cuit ouri Thursday afternoon agaiiut the
city of Lincoln, Francis W. Brown, mayor,
and LUmund C. Strode, city attorney, to
prevent them from enforcing Ordinance No.

price of gas In the city of Lincoln from Jl.dO
to $1 per 1.0W cubic feet, and one lmpoe ng
an occupation tax. The restraining order
was Issued and the hearing Is set for
Mr. Rose was In a big hurry to get the
restraining order issued, as the ordinance
becomes effective January 1, as does an
other ordinance passed December 10, 1m
jo.itis an occupation tax upon the gas
company of Lincoln of 2' per cent upon
the grins monthly receipts of the company
und aflixing a jienalty of an additional 1
lr cent If net paid by the 15th of each
month. In default of payment of this occu
pation tax after six months the penalty is
! per cent.
The petition makes the usual allegations
that both ordinances are unreasonable nnd
unfair nod will Involve the gas company In
rcrious financial loss If they are enforced.
It lo also ulleged that the ordinance reduc
ing tiie price of gas to SI was wholly arbi
trary anil Is unconstitutional, and that it
win only passed In pursuance to popular
clamor and newspaper agitation, referring
particularly lo c rtaln newspapers as the
principal agitators, which published "false,
malicious und defamatory statements thit
so Inlluenced the electors and their servants,
the city council, that tho Injurious ordi
nances were passed."
The petition goes on further to state that
Annoanrritifnti of the Theaters.
In "The Ham Tree" Messrs. Mclntyre
& Heath have been surrounded by an or
ganlzat'on as good as New York could
furnish. Messrs. Klaw & ETlanger put the
show on the stage and organized the com
pany with an eye only to securing the
very best. As a result they claim to have
not only the youngest, but the best sing
ing and dancing chorus ever put together.
Only three negro characters are presented,
two of these Messrs. Mclntyre and Heath
and the other by Belle Golden. These three
are a whole show in themselves. "The
Ham Tree" comes to the Boyu this even
ing for an engagement of two nights and
a matinee on Saturday.
On Sunday evening the Llebler company,
that is presenting "The Bishop's Carriage"
through the west, begins its engagement
at the Boyd. The play Is based on the
well-known story, and Is a great success.
Miss JesBle Busley Is playing Nance Olden
and has been much praised by the San
Francisco and other coast papers for her
work. The engagement Includes Monday
I and Tuesday evenings, with a special mat
inee on New Year's afternoon.
The closing performances of "Madame
Sans Gene" at the Burwood are drawing
even better crowds than did the opening,'
and this means a full house each time.
The bill continues till after Saturday night.

We deny the statement that this is a fight

dispatch from El Paso, Tex., relating to thi.

declared that the strike had been broken.

"There is not one iota of truth in that
statement and besides our basis of operation
Is at Houston. I must await furtlnr d -velopmetns

Mr. llanrahan is nonconimital on tho

those lines, to prepare for the final di

NI5W YORK. Dec. 27. Important steps
are soon to be taken In this city and else
where to establish a syst m of compulsory
and accurate records of the enornvAis num
ber of persons who are annually killed and
Injured In America's vast army of indus
trial workers. In New Yolk City alone
the meager records obtainable are startling.
In 1901 there were 4.12 persons killed in
New York City through aceh!fcnt and negli
gence, as shown by the rejxirts of the
department of health, and Ihet-e reports
are said to be incomplete.
For two weeks, beginning on January 2S.
nn exposition will be held In the American
Museum of Natural History In this city,
under the auspices of the American Insti
tute of Soclnl Service, for the purpose of
studying and exhibiting safety devices for
dangerous machinery, methods of Industrial
hygiene and to set In motion the movement
to establish a more accurate record of In
dustrial fatalities und accidents In all parts
of the country. At present Wisconsin 1
said to be the only state In the union where
nny effort Is made of official compilation
of thebe statistics.
Prominent People Intercnted.
Ir Europe there are slveral permanent
museums of this, character, where experts
are constantly studying how to safeguard
Industrial employes, snd as a result the
percentage of death and injury from acci
dents has been greatly reduced. Former
Preside! t drover Cleveland und many
other prominent and lnlliienti.il eitlzetis are
Interested In this new movement.
