ROHLER GIVES HIS SIDE OF CASE

Banks of Omaha, ths Omaha Commercial
club and prominent cltlssns have wired a
protest to Jesse Overstrsst, chairman of
the postofflce committee of the house at
Washington, for recommending a reduction
In the appropriation for hauling malls of
10 pr cent. Word has reached Omaha that
he will not consider the protests because
he Is In favor of the reduction, and In
fact drew the measures himself. A minor
ity report will be presented.
W. W. Baldwin, assistant to President
Harris, of the Burlington, has advised
western railroads of this contemplated ac
tion and asked them to make it plain
to business Interests of the west how the
mail service would be Impaired if any re
duction In the pay were made. No terri
tory In the country has better and more
expensive mall service than the west. The
fast mall trains out of Chicago and Omaha
are famous the country over, and there
can be no question the railroads will seek
curtailment of expenses should this
leoommendatlon be acted upon.
Congressman Kennedy has Interested
himself In the matter at Washington at the
request of the business Interests of Omaha
and he wires the protests of Omaha are
being pigeonholed by Mr. Overstreet on
acocount of his position.
Statement by Mohler.
Vice President and General Manager Moh
ler of the Union Pacific. In speaking on
the subject, said:
"It should be remembered that, beginning
Deoember, 1906, the Union Paclflo lnaugu
rated a fast dally exclusive mall train con
necting at the Missouri river with fast
mall from Chicago, New Tork and other
eastern cities, which overtook and con
nected at Oreen River with mall trains for
Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington,
and at Ogden with mall train for southern
California. Also with an additional ex
elusive dally fast mall train run
from Ogden to Oakland, delivering
malls In California and other states men
tioned. Dractically twenty-four . hours
artier than formerly, entailing an addl
tlonal cost to the associated lines of 11.000
per day. These systems have Just under
taken the construction of six complete all
steel fireproof exclusive mall trains for
this service, costing, approximately, 1600,
CC0, with which it is expected to Improve
the efficiency, better protect the mall and
Insure to a greater degree the safety of
mall djpartment employes. The bene
fit of this new service can better
be realised when It Is known
that a reply to a communication mailed
In New Tork can be returned by mall from
the Paclflo coast and delivered In New
Tork three days earlier than formerly. It
must, therefore, be apparent that with such
an Important reduction In mall pay, a cor
responding reduction In the service must
necssarlly follow, to the loss and deterlment
of the entire western states, and this fact
should be made most apparent to cltliens,
who are at present receiving the benefit
of this expedited service."
FIRE ESCAPE LAWS SUFFER
Bill Introduced la Legislators to
treaarthesi the statutes to
At the suggestion of Building Inspector
Withnell, Deputy Labor Commissioner
Bush Is having introduced at Lincoln a
bill to amend the laws on fire scapea, so
as to give building Inspectors and the
labor commissioner more authority. The
purpose Is to make binding a notice served
on an agent to erect a fire escape on a
building. There are numerous buildings
In Omaha, Mr. Withnell says, the owners
of which are nonresidents and on which
buildings fire escapes have not. been placed.
The present law does not provide for
notices served on resident agents. The new
bill contemplates giving the labor commis
sioner and building Inspectors authority to
order any building closed in cases where
notices have been served and fire escapes
have not been placed as required.

FUNERAL OF TOMMY V0TAVA

FlllpI and Rst. R. H,
Through an error of those charged with
svln th nsws to the papers a statement
was made concerning the funeral Saturday
of Tommy Votava, the 14-yvar-old boy
kllVsd by an elevator at Megeath's store
last week, that the boy's father conducted
the services. Rev. B. A. FUlpl, pastor of
the Bohemian Presbyterian church, had
charge of the funeral services at the home
and grave and was assisted by Rev. R. M.
De Castello at the home. The body was
burled at National Bohemian cemetery. The
boy was a member of the Sunday school
of this church, of which his father Is one
of the elders. The family's grief over the
untimely death of their son In whom they
placed great hopes Is intense.
FORMER RATES ARE RESUMED
Hock Islaatd Withdraws Trls? Wales,
The Rock Island bas officially announced
to local grain men the withdrawal of Its
tariff abolishing proportional rates from
Omaha on grain originating west of the
liver. The amended tariffs announce that
the old proportional rate will apply on
grain from both sides of the river.
n, iiM-k island was a party to ths agree
ment, whereby the railroads proposed to
make local rales apply on Iowa grain to
Omaha, thereby preventing the grain from
going to Omaha and thence to the gulf
.ivim the Omaha-Chicago lines the
long haul. The agreement fell through, as
similar ones have many times neiore.

FUND FOR THE STEAMBOAT
Ttn Thousand Dollars Baited by the
Missouri liver Promoters.
H. T. CLARKE PUTS IN ONE-FIFTH OF IT
Babsertbes Two Thoasaad Dollars.
Which Brlags Paad I'p Charles
B. Ptekeas Bacaested
Ten thousand dollars has been raised
to start a steamboat on the Missouri river.
A meeting for election of directors and
officers will be held by the Incorporators
of the Omaha & Missouri River Naviga
tion company Wednesday afternoon at 4
o'clock In the Commercial club rooms.
The 110,000 fund set as a prerequisite to
Incorporation was completed by a $2,000 sub
scription from Henry T. Clarke, who Is
the one man In Omaha persistently and
continually talking Missouri river naviga
tion. Mr. Clarke went into the office of
Ourdon W. Wattles, who had circulated
subscription papers among ths grain men
and who had raised his $6,000. He seemed
much disappointed to learn that the Com
mercial club contingent of the steamboat
committee still lacked about C0OO.
"Hand me that subscription paper," he
said to Mr. Wattles.
"Good; you're doubling up on the rest
of them." said Mr. Wattles when the other
had written on the paper and handed It
back. "I see you are putting in $300."
"It's $2,000; it's ,$2,000. snorted Mr.
And It was, sure enough.
Plckeas for President.
Charles H. Pickens, who last year was
chairman of the transportation committee
of the Commercial club. Is prominently
mentioned for the presidency of the com
pany. O. W. Watfles was also suggested.
but Mr. Wattles has said his many other
duties will not allow htm to serve.
No move to buy a boat will be made at
once, as It is thought well to spend two or
three months snd a few hundred dollars
In the acquisition of Information. It is ex
pected to get information snd advice from
Captain H. M. Chittenden, a government
engineer, who has written a book on th
"Early Steamboat Navigation of the Mis
souri River," and it Is proposed to send a
man to Kansas City, Bt. Louis and other
river towns to make Investigations. The
Kansas City jobbers a few months ago
launched a steamboat company without
much preparation, and now they are ready
to sell their boats and barges, having
found they are not adapted to the river.
A. Overton and other old pilots of Omaha
will be called upon for advice and information.
