STREET RAILWAY ANSWERS
Company Denies that a Ten-"ant Fare to
Omaha ia Unreasonable.
JURISDICTION OF COMMISSION DENIED
Also Asserts that West End Improve
ment Clnb Has So Right to Prose
rate Complaint, Kot Being a
Patron of the' Road.
The Omaha and Council Bluffs Strott
Railway company has made answer to the
petition of the West End Improvement club
of this city before the Interstate Com
merce commission relative to its demand
that the street railway company be re
quired to grunt a straight 6 cent fare be
tween Ojuncll Bluffs and Omaha and to re
duce its bridge tolls. The Improvement
club has also amended Its petition as sug
gested by the commission and has (lied
a motion asking (hat the street railway
ocmpany be required to set out the lease
under which It Is operating the line between
the two cities and to produce all of Its
books, records, etc., before the commission.
The street railway company In Its. answer
asks that the petition of. the Improvement
club be dismissed.
In Its answer the street railway com
pany denies the right of the club to com
plain because It does not as a club pat
ronise the road and ia not entitled to speak
for or complain for or In behalf, or In the
name of the inhabitants of' the city of
Council Bluffs, or of persons or Individuals
who may travel upon said street railway
line. It denies that It Is subject to regu
lation by the Interstate Commerce commis
sion because It Is a street railway and not
a commercial road. That It Is operating
under a lease from the Omaha A Council
Bluffs Railway and Bridge company which
fixes the rate of fares to be charged and
it consequently has no Voice In the making,
fixing or charging of faros. Further, It de
nies that the rate of 10 cents between the
two cities is unreasonable because the dis
tance Is six miles. It contends that to re
duce the fare to 6 OPnts would make It
less than 1 cent a mile.
It denies that It discriminates and denies
that a fare of 6 cents would yield sufficient
remuneration or that a fare of 10 cents ln-i
Jure, or Is unreasonable, or a discrim
ination or a violation of the Interstate act.
Regarding Its bridge over the Missouri
rives the company states It cost 2500,000 to
construct and not $450,000 as represented by
the Improvement club; that the Income
from tolls is 130,000 a year while the ex
penses are as follows: Maintenance (and
repair, $6,000; taxes, $8,500; Insurance, . $500;
employes, $15,000; depreciation, $5,000,

Divorce Day In District Court.
In the divorce suit of T. J. Hatch against
Rosa B. Hatch, Judge Wheeler In district
court yesterday granted the wife the de
cree on her cross-petition. The husband
based his suit for divorce on the allegad
ground that his wife had deserted him.
while the latter made statutory charges
against her husband. They were marrlod
In 1893 and lived together until September
80, 1904, shortly after they had removed
from Oakland, Ia,, to Council Bluffs. Mrs.
Hatch was given the custody of their two
minor children but the question of ali
mony was left undecided by the court.
Mrs. Hatch claims that her husband has
property, while he denies that he has and
In court testified that he had lost -everything
and was now working for his father
for $30 a month wages. Hatch when he
moved to Council Bluffs engaged in the
horse business and for awhile cut quite a
In granting Mrs. Maggie Fry a divorce
from Ev A. Fry, Judge Wheeler, remarked:
"The only reason I hesltste In granting
this divorce Is that I fear It may mean
another victim." This remark from the
court was prompted by the fact that the
plaintiff was tho third woman who had
sought and secured a divorce from Fry.
Mrs. Fry charged her husband with cruel
and Inhuman treatment and failure to sup
port. Fry was formerly custodian of one
of the local cemeteries. The marriage of
the parties to the suit took place February
Mrs. Edith E. Tletge was granted a di
vorce from Edward Tletge, to whom she
was married April 16, 1K89. The plaintiff
testified that In the Tletge household It
was a case of "Everybody works but
father," and that In order to provide for
the family rhe'-was obliged to conduct a
boarding house. This would have been
all right, she declared, had it not been tor
the class of boarders her husband brought
to the place. "Why, they would drink,
fight, use the awfullest Ungual and turn
the lamps over In their brawls.'' -he told
the court. Life became too strenuous un
der such conditions, so Mrs. Tletge decided
to sue for divorce. Cruel and inhuman
treatment was the specified charge made by
Hulda R. Bentley was granted a divorce
from Loran 8. Bentley on grounds of cruel
and Inhuman treatment.

WASHINGTON, March 28. President
Roosevelt has concluded to Increase the
American delegates at The Hague confer
ence, a proceeding which will have no ef
fect upon the disposition of the Various
projects that will be considered at that
gathering, because each nation represented
is entitled to but one vote; but because of
the complexity and Importance of the pro
gram It Is felt by the president that the
American delegation should be enlarged
to permit of a subdivision Into committees
If need be.
When the anouncement was made last
June of the Intention to hold a second con
ference it was also stated that America
would be represented by General Horace
Porter, formerly ambassador to France;
Joseph H. Choate, formerly ambassador to
England, and Judge U. M. Rose of Little
Rock, Ark., formerly president of the
American Bar association. The president
and Secretary Root have already selected
the additional delegates, but It Is not
deemed proper to announce their names
In advance of formal notice that the
second conference actually is to be held.
For notwithstanding the fact that scarcely
more than sixty days Intervene between
this date and the date suggested by the

is important that Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery be taken persistently
to purify the blood and thereby remove
the cause of the trouble. It is in the
blood that the grf at battle of health has
to be fought. The nicer and the sore
are simply the scarlet flowers of disease,
