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
atonal delegation that on or mora repre
sentatives of tha department should go
there to confer on tha Japanese school
The board met this morning, and It was
practically agreed that tha four directors,
tha auperlntendent and the secretary should
make tha trip.

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

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

trine, will receive tha favorable considera
tion of a majority of tha delegatea, enab
ling them to be discussed.

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

"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.

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.
