according to agreement Saturday after
noon and on a mof.on or W. C. Lambert
dismissed the charges on the question of
Jurlsdlctloa. Hannigan wan charged with
aclllng liquor both on May & and May 12.
He did not, however, receive hl license
until May 15. For this reason Mr. Um
bert thought It the beet policy diarnlsa
the present charges. He stated, howeyer,
that as to the evidence presented that It
was his belief and that of the board that
the law had been violated on both of those
days. The attorney for Mr. Hannigan
e'ated that there woild b no further fear
that the law would be violated again at
that place. The board forbid that Hanni
gan sleep at the saloon In the future. He
complained that he was afraid that should
he leave the saloon over night tils enemies
wruld burn his premises.
Joseph Uvlck Immediately asked that the
board pass on his license, which had also
been protested. The board agreed to fix a
ttme when the hearing might be held. The
Protestants will be notified of the hearing.
Uvlck was the complaining witness In the I

CUNNING CHINESE SMUGGLERS
"Way thart Are Bark" fchovra
th Tribe la Monterey
. A stupendous International swindle. In
which a band of Chinese smugglers have
for year been making fortunes by park
ing salt In barrels supposed to contain fish
and shipping it Into the orient without
paying heavy Import duties, has Just been
uncovered at Monterey, Cal. ' The remark
able feature of the gTsft 1 that several
hundred Chinese have participated in It.
and. that even women and ehfldren earned
as high as S16 and tX a day. Bo clove
mouthed have the smugglers been that the
wholesale smuggling has gone on for years
Some years ago the people of Monterey
noticed a small colony of Chinese whloh
had established Itself on the beach Just
outside the town. All through the dark
hours of the night these Chinese men,
women and children could be seen fishing
in Monterey bay. Each little boat was
provided with a torch, the light of which
cast weird shadows In the gloom of the
night. This colony became world-famous
and every tourist doing California was
taken down to se the midnight fishing
It was soon found that the Chinese were
after squid, a sort of jellyfish which cam
to the surface of the bny only at nleht.
It is considered when dried a great deli
cacy for the Chinese palate. Apparently
the fishermen In the Monterey colony were
very humble followers of the sea, but
further Investigation proved that a deep
scheme to defraud the Chinese government
was at the bottom of their Industry.
In some parts of China the duty on salt
I so high as to make the Importing of
It prohibitive. To get around this law,
tl Chinese squkl fishers of Monterey
shipped thousands upon thousands of squid
home every year In barrels, one layer of
squid and four layers of suit. In this way
not only did th importer In th far orient
receive a valuable consignment of squid,
but also an Invaluable consignment of salt,
which parsed In free from th enormous
But the squid colony In Monterey in
creased and multiplied at such a rate and
tha atench arising from the fish which
half the time were not shipped, until It
was In an advanced stage of decomposi
tion, was so teriiblo that the whole town
rose up Id rebellion. An investigation re
sulted In an exposure of the smuggling,
the facts of which wcro furnished the
Chines government, with lb result thst

"The machinery Is now mo-v1nff to the
greatest satisfaction, as all the countries
are sincerely animated by a desire for a

the government of another, It I predicted,
will be adopted with a few slight amond
menta" M. Bourgeois, president of th first com
mittee, delivered an eloquent speech tods
In favor of the principle of Arbitration and
produced an excellent Impression. ITe gave
a detailed survey of the srWtratlon con
vention of 1S. which has been recently
sdhered to by seventeen additional nations.
He expressed gratitude to Andrew Carnegie
for his donation of the peac palace and
said since the opening of the arbitration
court the experience of all nations had
shown that the working of arbitration
might become dally more simple. As a
natural result of It, he said. Justice hsd
entered the domsln of practical reality.
Public opinion of nations had quickly
grasped It and government" had become
accustomed to It.
The results of the establishment of th
court were seen In the thlrty-miro.
tlon which had been concluded sine 18D
a aerlea of Incidents which M.
Bourgeois recounted. The North sea Incl
dent and the Veneiuela affair, he pointed
out. were along the cases dealt with by the
M. Bourgeois raid a graceful compliment
.h. t'nited States and President Roose
velt for their rart In setting In motion the
new Jurisdiction. Regarding tne xasa Be
fore the commission of perfecting the con
vention of 189 he observed that the rules
of im might be defined to a kind of sum
mary of procedure.
Second Committee Divided.
The second committee was divided Into
two subcommittees. One, presided over by
M Beernaert, will deal with the amellora
Hon of the rules cf land warfare. Th
other, presided over by M. Asser. wUl deal
with the rights and duties of neutral pow
ers In times of war and also with th open
ing of hostilities.
In the first committee M. De La Barra.
the minister of Mexico to Belgium, read an
Important statement on the subject of In
ventions for compulsory arbitration which
was received with general applause.
The German and English delegations
presented separata propositions on the
subject of the proposed international prise
court and the French delegation presented
a project on the subject of arbitration.
The first committee was also divided Into
wo subcommittees, both presided over by
M Bourgeois, one on arbitration and thai
other on the prize court.
In the second court the English delega
tion announced the presentation of two pro
jects, one referring to the rights and duties
of neutral powers and th other to the
opening of hostilities.
Opening- of Hostilities.
The Russian delegation presented a propo
sition on the subject of th opening of hos
tilities. The committee, evidently In order to avoid
hurting the feelings of th Japanese, con
cluded that up to the present there Is no
existing International understanding on the
subject of the opening of hostilities, holding
that each country can affirm that Its point
of view In this connection Is correct. The
cotftmlttee must therefore decide whether
to maintain the status quo or establish
International rules for the opening of hos
tilities. The German delegation presented a propo
sition regarding the treatment of neutrals
in the territory of belligerents.
In the second .committee Oeneral i Hor
ace Porter presented a proposition not to
collect debts by fore whenever th deb
tor nation expresses a wish to submit
Its obligations to arbitration.
Germany proposed an amendment to the
rules of the conference of 1S99 regarding
the pacific settling of disputes.
Baron D'Estournelle De Constant pro
posed an amendment to the rules of 1893
regarding commissions of Inquiry and also
recommended the simplification of the pro
cedure. ' Senor Barra suggested that th resolu
tions of the conference held In Mexico In
18V9 of the conference of Rio Janeiro of
190 and the conventions existing between
Couth American countries be utiltaed In
drawing up a compulsory convention.

to love end publicly avow their faith In

scriptures to be the only Infallible rule of .
faith and practice, do believe In the Lord j
Jesus Christ. as th only nam '
under heaven given among men. whereby i
we must be saved from everlasting punish
ment. Now, surely. Jews do not believe or pro
fess belief in th divinity of Christ, nor
do Unitarians; hence, they are excluded
from active membership by this canon.
Catholics do not maintain "thf-holy scrip
tures to be the only InfslllMe rule of fslth
and practlc," and. according to this defini
tion as given above, are excluded from the
"Evangelical churches," as reckoned by the
Young Men's Christian association, and.
consequently, from active membership In
that organisation. Is this non-sectarian, as
you understand It?
Have these conditions of active member

changed. I should be pleased to lesrn that

EXETER, Neb.. June ?l.-To the Editor
of The Bee: I have been getting your
valuable paper for some time and as a
newspaper I think It second to none. I am
surprised, however, to notice that In nearly
every Issue there are from one to three
editorial "flings' at Mr. Bryan Surprised
that a papr that Is always "standing tip
for Nebraska" should go nut of Its way
so often to try to belittle Nebraska's fore
most cltlten, the man who put and keeps
Nebraska on the map. For, dlsculso the
matter as you may, Nebraska better
known and more highly honored among
sister states from being the home of Wil
liam Jennings Bryan than for anything
else. H Is also the foremost private cltl
ten of the United States and Nebrnsl-a
should feel proud of him.
Mr. Bryan's criticism of Governor Hughes
for vetoing th 2-cent rate bill was timely
and well deserved. To my certain knowl
edge some railroads In New York have
been run on a 2-cent rate for the last
thirty-flv years and thoy pay so well they
have been able to corrupt legislatures and
buy elections out of the profits. The legis
lature that passed the law understood the
conditions better than Governor Hughes
Time was when Governor Hughes wns con
sidered on of the stronsest republican
candidates for president. He Is eliminated
by his veto, but his act has encouraged
the railroads to fight the !-cent rate, in

It was like shaking hands with an old ac

OMAHA, June 3 To th Kdttor of The
Th Bee: In this morning-a Bee appears a
question regarding aotlv membership In
the Young Men's Christian association. Th
Inquirer asks: "Can a Catholic, a Jew, or
Unitarian hold active membership in the
Toung Men's Christian association?" You
reply: "Inasmuch as both Jews and Catho
lics are members at present. It la quits
likely that a Unitarian can join, and It
may be that some members of that faith
are enrolled. Soma of tha members make
no profession of religion. Th organisa
tion la strictly non-sectarian."
Your auswer does not squars with th
constitution of ths Young Men's Christian
association, as published by the interna
tional commute of Young Men's Christian
association, dated 1&8. Just to keep the
record straight, I quote section I, article II,
entitled "Membership," as follows:
Th members shall consist of young men,
and shall be divided Into two rlaaaea, vis:
Active and associate. Only young men over
IS years of age, who are members in good
standing of tvangellcal churches (ths word
Evangelical la to be understood as detaed
by the International convention at Port
land In 1m). shall be eligible to active
membership: but any young man over It
years of ae. of good moral characters may
l elected an asaoc'at member. Both
classes shall enjoy like privileges, except
that voting and holding efflc shall be con
ferred to active members.

Water Powtr for Omaha.
OMAHA. June 22. To the Editor of The
Bee: Omaha's buainesa lif never pre
sented Itself to me In better form and
fore at any period of Ita history thai
It did in the recent visit of Its enterprU
in, .nd eneraetlc representatives, headed
by Governor Sheldon, to the mountain
and Faclflo states and cUies. I Ucllne
to call those stout yofmr business men
"boosters." The word as'aprlled to them
seems to me to be boyish, demeaning and
frivolous. It Is true the tour was to push
Omaha Into attention as a trade center,
but It was not to "hoosr It up out of a
hole or over a fence, for the very good
reason that Omaha Is not In any kind of
a hole, nor la it in any way or manner
fenced In. The better and broader mis
sion of these young men of business In
their Invasion of our sister states and
cities was to blare the way for new fields
for commercial conquests, to observe their
progress, to study men and new resources
and to adapt their own conditions and In
terests to new conditions upon which
Omaha must depend for Its own advance
ment As I measure this Incident In our
commercial Uf. it was. and was meant
to be truly and broadly educational. I
m quite aure the result will not be dis
appointing. If these marching soldiers
of business and trade discovered nothing
els on this excursion, what they saw
and learned of the value of water power
Ita the growth of tha towns and cities
visited by them wlU probably contribute
in no small degree In th. near futur to
th development of cheap power that shall
make Omaha an Industrial as well as a
commercial city. Thee keen-minded men
of Omaha saw things with their own eye
that surprised them a with a new light.
The Platte river power Is here. Nobody
now doubts It. What v la wanted Is a
strong organisation to harness this power
nmaha. A few Babcocks. Instead of
one. could, If they wouia. pui me imu ,
of Omaha on the nock of any corporation.
or any man. who ever again undertakes (
to cheat thla strong end growing city out (
of cheap power through either corporate .
or personal greed of gain. No great and j
populous city la poaalbl in the Interior
of our country, or elsewhere, without
large volumes of well-paid skilled labor ,
In factories devoted to making finished j
products which this central empire so
a-raatly demands. Cheap raw material, j
cheap power and cheap transportation are
what mad New York. Philadelphia. Pitts
burg. Chicago. Detroit. Cleveland and
St Louis. Mere trade did not do It. It
Is th Industrial powr that makes cities
populous and powerful. London Itself Is
no exception to th rul.
Henry M. Whitney, th Massachusetts
capitalist, said In my hearing on his re
cent visit to Omaha that If w had the
Piatt river water power, as h had been
asaured wt had. he could not understand
why It had not been used. He also j
ranked water power property as very j
valuable. What. thun. Is Omaha's most i
-...I.. mA today? The answer Is, a !
few Babcocks, one Whitney, and 4,000.
000 In Dougla county and Omaha boads
to build a water power on the Platte
river east of th Elkhorn and within
twenty-five miles of Omaha, this power
to b owned, but never operated, by
Omaha, so that It can sell power and

Outdoor sleeping Is today In Its Infancy.
But If a prophetic word may be ventured,
the time Is coming In a few years hence
when 1t will be regarded more favorably
and will become an almost universal prac
tice. Houses and living apartments will be
planned and built with this end In view.
Just as the more sanitary, better ventilated,
and larger bed rooms of the present have
been constructed to supersede the dark,
stuffy cubbyholes of our grandparents.
Man Is gradually awakening to tho fart
that an ounce of preventive medicine is
worth several pounds of curative treat
ments. When he gets his eyes wide open
to this faot, and has aroused himself from
the lethargic condition which he msintaina
at' present toward the startling mortality
rate of easily eradlcable diseases, we may
expect to see some of Uie carelessness and
Indifference In regard to hygienic methods
of right living give place to wisdom and
common sense thus materially prolonging
life and making It more livable while It ex
ists. Then, like our hardy primeval ancestors,
man more frequently will seek his rest be
neath the blue-arched sky, where sleep Is
sweet and healthful and the lungs can fill
themselves with rejuvenating air. Satur
day Evening Post.

The Bee aims to appeal to intellect, not to
an appetite for scandal, or the sensational
and criminal side of the world's happen
ings. It is read by intelligent people.
Intelligence means thrift, whether in homes of the mechanic
or the capitalist. The intelligent, thrifty housewife reads adver
tising with great care to get the best and most for the money she
Las to 6pend.
Women read Ths Dee at home; they do not have to
blush K their children find them readicg it; In thous
ands of hornet where there are children, It la the only
jiaper admitted to ths household.
