While none of the rpglatera of tha local hotels bore hla autograph J.

In the city before he made hla return known by a viait to the office of Sheriff Canning. There be filed nineteen more original notlcea of liquor In junction suits, fourteen 6f which are' against saloon men and five against keepers of al leged houses of 111 fame.

Arts, bat Talks Hot When Mr. Brown left Council Bluffs last Saturday evening and crossed the rlvec to Omaha, from where. It la said, he took the tralnf for Lincoln, the saloonmen com menced to ' breathe more easily, as they believed they had aeen the last of him. But that they counted their chicks -before tha egga were hatched' ' was proven when the mysterious strafiger from Kansas returned unheralded .to the city yesterday armed' with- another big batch of Injunction aulta against saloons and other places, where It, 1 alleged ' liquor la sold contrary to tha provision of tha Iowa mulct law. Mr. Brown, whan seen yesterday after noon In the little office room over 14 Pearl street, waa not any more communicative than when on hla first visit here. "I aatd I waa coming batk and here I am," Is about all tha Information he was willing to vouch safe To questions aa what hla motive waa In waging a crusade against the' liquor dealers. Mr. Brown had no answer. When Mr. Brown first made Ms appear ance In Council Bluffs and filed the first batch of ' Injunction suit notices. It waa suspected that he was acting for or In con Junction with local parties. That this waa tha case Mr. Brown practically admitted to a certain saloonkeeper who called upon him to - Inquire why he had begun ault agalnat him. The character of certain of the placea against which notlcea of suit were filed yesterday Indicates that persons acquainted with local conditions must have given Mr. - Brown the names, as five of the defendanta named In the notlcea filed yesterday are not on tha Hat of saloons paying license to the city or county. With the batch filed yesterday tha num ber of Injunction suits brought by J. Brown, attorney for J. Brown, plaintiff, amount to thlrty-alx. The seventeen notices filed by Mr. Brown prior to his departure last Saturday hava all been served by tha sheriff. atonal delegation that on or mora repre sentatives of tha department should go there to confer on tha Japanese school question. The board met this morning, and It was practically agreed that tha four directors, tha auperlntendent and the secretary should make tha trip. AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA A. If.

SHARP STICK FOR BURTON lUiaola Ialalatare Not Pleased with ' ' Tern a - of Rivera aad Harbors BUI. SPRINGFIELD, 111., Jan. 81. The lower housa of tha legislature today concurred It the senate amendment In a Joint resolution adopted by the house yesterday appealing to the Illinois delegation In oongraa to work for a distribution of the river and harbof appropriation, which will be mora equitable and more favorable to Illinois. Tho senate amendment struck cut tha personal criticism of Congressman Burton, Chairman of the rivers and harbors com mittee. ; " ' ' .' The resolution complains that the appro priation now gives 111,000.626' to plans for Improvement of the Great lakes. 21,200,000 to the harbor of Cleveland, 24.0n0.000 to tha Ohio river and only 30,000 a. year for the Mlaslaalppl river between St. Louis and Cairo, Instead of 50,000 a year, which has bees appropriated hitherto and alao gives only $1,000,000 for tho upper Missouri from 8t. Louis to St.. Pa.ul. an amount entirely Inadequate to carry out the plan of a six- toot chanrul. - Tho resolution especially deplores ths fact that "the rivers and harbars' bill re- commends no appropriation at all for be .ginning wprk on a dep waterway from tha lakes to the gulf, which. If the Missouri river and .upper Mississippi were Improved, would completely rvlleve the freight con gestlon and regulate railroad rates through out every state of tha Mississippi valley and In which almost one-half of the area of tha fnlted States Is vitally Interested, opening up aa It will the greatest Internal water way of tha world to the markets thereof."

PROGRAM FOR THE HAGUE Voto of Mesa hers Oaly Meaaa of Rata la Two QaeatlOBS of Io Imoortaaeo. WASHINGTON. Jan. Sl.-It may be atated by authority that neither the ques tion of international disarmament, fnclud Ins the kindred subject of restriction, nor tha Pra go doctrine, will be placed upon tha program of subjects to be considered at The Hague conference when It convenea next June or July. Tha program la regarded aa closed at this moment, nor will It bo formally added to before the meeting takea place. But very effort will bo made to hava the con ference consider tha two subjects named, though this can only be accomplished by the act of tha delegates themselves, prop erly supported by their principals. It will require an affirmative vote of tha confer ence to take up for discussion any new subject beyond those contained in tha pro gram and It la the hope of tha Washington government that these all-Important sub jects disarmament and tha Drago doc trine, will receive tha favorable considera tion of a majority of tha delegatea, enab ling them to be discussed. LAW TO PROTECT UNIFORMS Prealdeat Dealrea to filvo Social , Light a to soldiers aad Sailors. WASHINGTON. Jan. a. If President Roosevelt ran bring such a thing about, congress will pass a law which will pre vent discrimination against the uniform of. the army or the navy. Several cases Involving this question are pending In state courts, but the mora recent case of the refusal of a skating rink proprietor at Plattsburg, N. Y., to admit two soldiers In uniform, which was sustained by Judge Everest of the city codrt. has given an Impetus to the movement set on foot by tha president some time ago to Insist that the uniforms shall be recognized In all public places. In interesting phase of the Plattsburg case developed today, when It became known that Judge Everest recently wrote the president stating the grounds on which ha based hla decision, maintaining. In ef fect, that tha case was not one within the meaning of the bill of rights, affecting the question of race, creed or color. He frankly expressed the opinion, however, that the. matter should be taken up by congress and a bill passed making It an offense to discriminate agalnat the uniform of the' army or tha navy. Jenklaa la Conservative. This letter was referred by the president to Chairman Jenkins of the housa Judiciary committee, who took a rather conservative view as to the light of congress to deal with' the question, but suggesting that tha opinion of the Judge advocate general and the attorney general might -be sought In reference thereto. Chairman Jenkins, at the same time, re lated two Instances which had come under hla personal observation where proprietors of public cafes had gone to guests and notified them to wear their coats or else leave tha premises. This, Chairman Jen kins remarks, waa not a discrimination against the guests In question, but waa an objection to their mode of dress, a position In which he thinks tha proprietors were Justified. However, acting on Chairman Jenkins' auggestlon, the whole subject Has been referred to ' the attorney general for his action. In hla endorsement Judge Advocate Gen eral Davla says: Respectfully returned to the military sec retary. Section 22 A of the bill of rights of tha state of New York contains the re quirement: ' Law of New York. "If a person who owns, occupies, man ages or controls a building, park, enclosure or other place opens tha same to the pub liq generally at stated periods or other wise, he shall not discriminate against any person or class of persons In tha price charged for admltmlon thereto. A person violating the provisions of this section Is guilty of a misdemeanor." ejection 23 tirnvlrli.. : "That all nersona within the Jurisdiction of this state shall De entitled to the full and equal accommo dations, advantages, facilities and priv ileges of Inns, restaurants, hotels, eating houses, bath nouses, barber shops, thea ters, muslo halls, public conveyances on land and water, and-, all other places of Jiubllc accommodation or amusement, sub ect only to the conditions and limitations established by law and applicable alike on all oltlsens." The foregoing requirements are mora comprehensive In their terms than ia sec tion 22 of the bill of rights, within which exclusion-on the ground of race, color or previous condition of servitude is expressly prohibited. In view of the very general character of the language used in the section above cited It ia recommended that the capers In this case be referred to the Department of Justice, with the request that It be ex amined With a view to determine the pre prlety 'of obtaining a review of the de cision rendered by the court of original Jurisdiction.

Corner M lis th. Vflei UaO. "I would be for annexation." said A Gallagher Wednesday night, "If I could bo assured on one point, that with the merging of tha two cities there would be no decrease of real estste values. On this point I think tha argument Is largely theoretical. Actual trial would be the test ing of the matter; but It Is the uncer tainty of the matter which has atuck In my mind. . On many other grounds the speedy annexation of the city ' would be full of advantage. In the matter of railroad rates an example came under my notice. I waa coming In from out In the state on a stock train. On my advice a man I happened to meet consigned to South Omaha. Eight een cars of stock were picked up before wa reached Lincoln. At Lincoln all but the car I had managed by personal effort to direct this way, were switched off and went to St. Joseph. It struck me aa queer that with South Omaha so near that the shippers would prefer to go tho greater distance to St. Joseph. When I arrived In Omaha I spoke to W. J. C. " Kenyon about it. He said that the St. Joseph mar kets had greater Influence with tbe rail roads. South Omaha with Its live stock exchange as the only potent factor of In fluence, backed by a rather weak munici pality, compared with the heavy Interests of St. Joseph, Is unable to command tha concessions which should be given by the Nebraska railroads. The exchange la alive to the needs of this market, but they can not do It alone. The powerful Interests of Omaha should be added to that of South Omaha and then they would be felt." This from A. M. Gallagher, who has always been considered the proudest cham pion of the anti-annexation forces, Is sig nificant of the fact that the terrors of an nexation are not real; and that the whole question Is one of good-natured specula tion and debate rather than of the vital Interests at stake. It la conceded now that real estate In a live and healthy city com mands lta price by tha use it Is put to. In times of fictitious prices and booms the case Is different, but In periods of steady development real estate Is not purchased purely as a speculation. When a man buys acreage property aa the Bradford Kennedy company are doing this week. It la for a practical use. Coal yards and lumber yards are to occupy the lots. The Lucerne Food producta. and the Gate City Malt works, and. In fact, the purchases tor the last year In Bouth Omaha have been made for use. The real estate can be used and It will be used the more. For every lawyer who might move his offices up to Omaha after annexation a commis sion man would seek' a residence In the Highland park district. People are not going to hurry out of South Omaha. It Is as near to Omaha's center as Walnut Hill. This fact should Inaare every prop erty owner that there can be no great fluctuation of prices. They will rise rather than fall. The residence district about Highland park will In five years' time equal that splendid streets of the Hanscom park district. Charter Change Dlsonssloa The meeting of the general committees of the South Omaha Improvement clubs waa not aa generally attended as was an tlclpated last night. About fifteen people were in ' attendance to receive Uie report I of tho executive committee of ten men who were to draft tha amendments to the city charter. It waa discovered that tha amendmenta had been sent to Lincoln al ready. One was that tha city be granted the power to grade two blocks' of any street where the cost of grading would exceed the value of the abutting property. Of this grading the city should pay two thirds and the property owners one-third. Another proposition waa that tha electora be required to show a tax receipt for per sonal taxes before being allowed to vote at municipal elections. There were a number of exceptions to this rule. . A tax of $3, or poll tax, should be exacted. It was explained that the committee of ten had been made ' an executive committee with power to act and that there was a manifest necessity for haste In the mat ter, so that tho needs of the city could be presented before the generally Im portant bills occupy the legislature. Some diversion was occasioned In the virulent attack on the present administra tion and its methods Indulged In by John MacMUlan. He charged that the sewer propositions had been Juggled from start to finish and declared that one whole tun nel section had been eliminated from the sewers after tha proclamation had been made for tha sewer bond election and that it waa the intention that tho 2260,000 should Include this. This was the north tunnel section of the sewer system as defined by Andrew Rosewater. On this he based his argument that the contracts had been Juggled to the tune of 236,000 at the least and now the legislature was being asked for 230,000 more. Mr; MacMUlan grew heated In his remarks and1 as a final clincher ha presented tha original report of Andrew - Rosewater to the city council on the cost of the sewer system. Before tha conclusion It was conclusively shown that this tunnel section had been dropped before the mayor Issued his proclamation last year. As a side Issue a resolution was passed Indorsing the Cassady park sits aa a fa vorable proposition. Story of Secret Meeting. Mayor Hoctor gave the full history yes terday afternoon of the session of the city i council and the park board last Wednes ; day night He said all tha membera of ; tho council and tho park board were pres ent and that the map of the city was spread out on the engineers' table for In vestigation and comparison. Since not all the property owners were present to pre sent the merlta of their propositions It waa determined to close tha doors and keep all parties out The propositions were dls cussed at some length; but no action waa taken on any of-tha propositions. One rea- I son waa that the money for the bonds had j not been received nd until that time It waa not thought advisable to express any pre . ference for any property until tbe actual I time of the purchase. It is evident thtt there la likely to bo a sharp difference of opinion before tha, sites are determined Some sites aos thought to be too high. El R. Leigh, the secretary of tbe park board, declared that the business of the secret session waa confined to a mere dis cussion of the propositions in a general way. At the close of the meeting tha bodies adjourned until reassembled at the call of the mayor. At this prospective meeting tbe el lee will be considered more particu larly. Maale City (ioaalp. .

Needed Dairy Lcsjtslatlon. GIBBON, Nab., Jan. 20. To the Editor of The Bee: There has been introduced Into both branchea of the Nebraska legis lature a dairy commission bill known as house roll No. lfts and senale file No. 19. The provisions of thla bill wera thor oughly considered and discussed at the last meeting of the Dairymen's association, at hlch were present more than 200 dairy men, and was unanimously approved and recommended for enactment Into law. Thla measura provides for tha creation of a dairy commission, because It Is believed that the value and Importance of the dairy Industry to the people of the state (an in dustry representing an Investment of more than 220,000,000. See statistical map In 1905 report of Nebraska Dairymen's aecla- tlon, which report may be had on applica tion to the aecretary) warranta the estab lishment of such a commission with power to enforce the dairy laws of the state. Under the provisions of the bill the gov ernor would be the dairy commissioner. but the deputy commissioner and four dairy Inspectors must be appointed on the recommendation of the professor of dairy husbandry at the State university and the officers of the State Dairymen's association. This Is required In order that tha working force of the commission shall not onty ba familiar with tha dairy Industry, but also have practical as wefl as scientific knowl edge of testing milk and cream. This bill makes it Unlawful to sell or manufacture Into butter for sale milk or cream which Is unclean or that has been kept In unsan itary conditions or surroundings. Tha proper enforcement of such a law will prevent tha dairyman from selling cream which Is unclean and will prevent the keep,lng of cream at cream receiving sta tions' In undesirable places, auch aa the atore room of aoma grocery store, sur rounded by onions, fish, oil or rotten vege tables; and then manufacturing such cream I into butter to bo sold at a low price, to the great detriment of the entire dairy In dustry. It will be the duty of the dairy Inspectors to Inspect placea where milk and cream ara produced and kept and to see that the law Is compiled with. Im provement In the quality of cream means improvement In the quality and price of creamery butter; a better price for butter meana a better price paid for cream, and If by the Inspection and the education which naturally, goea with It It la possible to Im prove the quality of oream sold so that- It shall bring 1 cent more per pound for the butter fat which It contains than was paid the last year, this Increased prior would pay, ten times over, the annual ex pense of the dairy commission. Perhaps the. most Important provision of the bill Is that relating to tha testing of cream. With good reason there has been more dissatisfaction connected with the testing of cream than any other feature of tha dairy business. While the dairymen of the state hava been selling, annually, 60,- 000,000 pounds of cream there haa been no flked, established and legal method for test Inf cream, although all cream waa tested (cr supposed to be) and paid for on the basta of tha pounds of butter fat whloh It contained. This dairy commission , bill not only provides a legal method for ' testing cream, but It doea atlll better: It provides that before any persons can engage In the business of testing cream at any place where cream is bought and sold, they must first pass an examination to determine that they. ness of testing rream under the supervision and rontrol of the dairy commission, and If at any time a cream tester la found not to do honest or aatlsfactory work the commis sion can remove him and prevent him from further engaging In such work. There are two principal objects aimed at In this measure: First, by Inspection of dairy products and the education Incident thereto, to Improve th quality of such pro ducts; this would mean a better ptlcn. Second, a square deal for both dairyman and creameryman In the testing of both milk and cream; ihls last Is most Impor tant If we are to further develop thla Im portant Industry. There hss been an In sistent demand on the part of dairymen for legislation of this character; 1n the platform adopted at-the last republican state con vention Is a plank pledging the enactment of a taw providing for Inspection of dairy products and to regulate the testing of cream. It is believed this dairy com m lesion bill meets all that Is now required In th matter of dairy legislation; It haa been pro pared with that object In view; a copy o the bill may bo had by applying to yfxif member of the state legislature or to tha undersigned; It la ausicested that If yott approve of thla measure, believe It la foe the best Interests of the dairy industry of the state. It Is your prlvllegw to wrlta your'aenator and representative at Lincoln giving ymir vlewa and requesting them to give It their support 8. C. BASSEJTT. Secretary Nebraska Dairymen's association.
