The executive committee of the CWIo

against the Board of Fire and Police Com

marked "additional and supplemental com

those filed under the Mickey regime. The

T. Graham. Isaac W. Carpenter and C. S.
Hayward, executive committeemen, are
signed to the document
Aside from making the same complaint
as before that saloons are kept open In
this city on Sundays, the ' federation now
registers a protest against the evil of prise
fighting, which It la said Is conducted
"notoriously" without any restraint from
the board.
After reviewing the fact of the former
complaint and lu preliminary hearing be
fore Governor Mickey at the Millard hotel
and all the circumstances attendant, the
complaint states:
That upon the first Sunday following said
"th of November, 1!, numerous pro
prietors of saloons for the sale of malt,
spirituous and vinous liquors In the city of
Omaha, kept their places of business closed
and did not, on said day. engage In the
sale of said liquors and thereafter from on

Secretary McVann of the Grain exchange
returned to Omaha Thursday after several
days' absence and Immediately began to
look Into the situation. He said he could
not tell what would be done until some offi
cial communication from the various roads
had been secured and a meeting had been
held of the transportation committee of
the exchange.
"I am Just back and do not know what
Is the position of the Wabash," said Mr.
McVann. "I hope it ts true the road Is
not a party to the agreement. The Iowa
roads have been fighting us all along In
order toiaul the grain to Chicago, and
this la Just another of the many moves
they have made. If It succeeds, the blow
will be a heavy one to Omaha." '
Mr. McVann says there Is plenty of
ground for taking the matter before the
Interstate Commerce commission and many
reasons why Omaha should win. The
transportation oommlttee of the exchange
will meet within a few days to decide on a
course of action.

"The t raffle Interests of the entire coun

the Cedar Rapids & Iowa City Interurban
railroad and the Chicago ft Northwestern."
said Secretary McVann. He had Just re
turned from Cedar Rapids, la., where he
was the principal witness In the hearing
of the case before the Interstate Commerce
"It is the first case under the new pro
vision of the Interstate commerce law
which gives the commission power to fix
Joint through rates where the railroads
concerned fall to do so. The Iowa inter
urban lines are aggressively officered and
managed. Thoy are vitally Interested, as
they are all freight carriers and have been
refused participation in the Joint tariffs of
the railroads in an effort of the latter to
shut them out of business. The Cedar
Rapids rrtad asked the commission to give
It Joint tariffs.
The lnterurbans carry a large amount

t Threaten loss of Tralas.
Railroad men at local headquarters say
residents along . the branch lines of the
roads In Nebraska will lose most of their
passenger trains If the proposed reduction
In passenger rates is made. The officials
declare that passenger service in Nebraska
Is maintained at an absolute loss snd that
although a few of the- through trains dur
ing the summer season may make a profit,
yet the state as a whole, Including the
sparsely settled districts, shows a loss.
It la a question In Nebraska if the pas
senger service pays a fair share of the
operating expenses," said one of the opera
ting officials in Omaha Thursday. "Over
LOCO miles of passenger service have been
added In Nebraska in the last, two years
on branch lines which penetrate new sec
stions of the state, all for the purpose of
furnishing passenger service Into those
thinly Inhabited sections for the benefit
of homeseekers and the population living
along these lines. At the request of com
mercial and civic bodies In western half
of the state thousands of miles of passen
ger service were put In and are now main
tained solely to promote these sections.
Many trains do not earn 40 cents a mile as
against an operating cost of 90 cents a
mile. The population of Nebraska is fif
teen per square mile as against eighty-six
la Illinois, forty In Iowa, 187 in France, Ml
in England and twenty-three In the United
States. Any reduction In the maximum
rates would no doubt sweep away the en
tire fabrio of cheaper excursion rates made
use of so largely by the working classes
of the state. It would be very questionable
it the roads could further maintain, even
for reasons' based on policy of develop
ment, many of the branch passenger trains
now run solely for these reasons.

Her presence Is charming; a thorough
wholesomeness seems to permeate her
songs that Is fairly captivating. So much
has been written In truthful praise of this
great artist that little or nothing can be
said that would add a single ray to her
Justly earned International fame. She com

ability to Interpret with rare Intelligence
the varied moods of the masters whose
work she so essays. Whether In Herman
or French, her enunciation la equally clear
and distinct. Her great voice, that melts
away Into the most beautiful head tones.

such tremendous power. Is something 'to
be remembered for a long time.

its Intensity, followed by the aria, which
was a perfect Joy.
At the conclusion the entire audience de

their seats calling for more and still more,

generous with her encores and so the house
was left with tbe beautiful aria in their
minds and hearts.
