dition at Fordham hoapltal today, Buffering
from a compound fracture of the leg and
Internal Injuries received In an eutomobllu
accident last night when the machine,
carrying the aeronaut and two women com
panions, crashed Into trolley pole In th
Bronx. Phystclana said today that Dr.

with Dr. Thomas when th accident oc
curred, waa so seriously Injured that physi
cians amputated her left leg today at
Fordham hoapltal. . Mlsa Roger waa In
jured Internally but probably will recover.
Dr. Thomas and his. friends were travel
Ing at a high rat of speed down Jerome
avenue last night. Near the entrance of
Woodlawn cemetery th road makes a
sharp turn which the aeronaut evidently
did not so In the darkness. The machine
crashed Into a heavy trolley pole and Dr.
Thomas and his two companions were
flung out of the machin as if from a cat
apult. The automobile was reduced to
crap Iron by th Impact. The report of
the crash waa heard for some distance
and mounted police and autolsts hurried
to the scene and th injured were taken
to the hospital. Dr. Thomas was found
to have sustained a fracture of the right
leg and to. have suffered Internal Injuries.
Hla body was covered with bruise. Mia
Haas and Miss Rogers both were uncon
scious when found lying In the roadway.
The physicians found that Miss Haas
would have to undergo the amputation of
her left leg to save her life. The curve
where the accident occurred Is extremely
dangerous and there hav been many acci
dent at that paint.4 Twt 'women were
killed at the curve laat year In an automo
bile accident similar to the one last night.

Health Commissioner Coanell State
HI Position on l'assl

Dr. Ralph Connell. health commlasloner,
haa taken up the cudgels on behalf of cer
tain tenants who are occupying houses now
kept In unsanitary condition. Last week a
ca was brought against the agent of the
owner of the houses Involved In the contro
versy and, the police Judge told the agent
that the house must be placed In a sanitary
condition or vacated. This decision was
satisfactory to all concerned at the time,
but th health commissioner takes exception
to the manner In which It Is to be carYled
"I am told," said Dr. Connell Monday,
"that neighbors of th tenant have com
plained of th condition of this house and
have been told to swear out a warrant for
th arrest of the tenant on charge of main
taining a nuisance. I am further Informed
that the, case has been prejudged and that
tbe tenant la to be' frrred, If the .. la
nushed. tho object being to Close the house
-J until the neceearytmprovmerit are made.
If thf police Judge pr anyone else expect
me to cause a warrant to b Issued against
the tenant In this case he Is mistaken. I had
the agent of the owner In court and h was
released with a caution. The owner lives
In California, but the property should be
responsible for its maintenance. I am going
to tell that tenant to cease paying rent un
til the repairs . are made and then w will
sue If th owner will not act.
"There Is no law for It, but If that tenant
will pay ma th money h Is now paying
th agent I will guarante to see that the
repairs are mad. I am not going to be a
party to punishing tenants for, the delin
quencies of owners under any circum

The business upon which the earnings of
the Nebraska Telephone Company are
based is the result of many years of steady
growth and consequently is of a most sub
stantial and reliable character. Th finan
ciering of the company has been on the
most conservative lines. The company has
no watered stock and no bonded indebted
ness, but shows an honest dollar of value
for every dollar of capitalization. For
more than ten years without a break the
company has earned six per cent dividend,
annually, besides putting back into the
property an amount sufficient to maintain
it at the highest efficiency, and providing
additional security by the accumulation of
an emergeny fund.
From time to time the company has is
sued additional capital stock to provide for
enlargements and extensions of its plant
which earn their 6hare of fixed charges
and strengthen the whole property.
Recently the company has believed that
the time has come for offering its stock in
its own territory, for three reasons. First,
because the property is in a more satisfac
tory condition than ever before; second,
because, by and large, the people of Omaha
and Nebraska generally have more money
than ever before to put into conservative
investments; and third, because it is
thought that the prosperity of the company
will be even greater if its patrons become
participators in its earnings.
The Nebraska Telephone company offers
you an opportunity to secure dividends on
an investment in actual property which has
been bought and paid for. Business men of
Omaha who have investigated the Nebraska
Telephone company have found ft in a
thoroughly healthy condition.
The company gives the best of service
and is adding new connections at the rate
of 10,000 a year.

WASHINGTON. July fc-The Interstate
Commerce commission today, In th case of
Georgia Edward agalnat the Nashville.
Chattanooga ft St. Loula railroad, held that
where a railroad provided certain accommo
dations for first-class passenger of th
whit race It Is commanded by the law that
like accommodations shall be provided for
negroes who have purchased first-class tick
ets. It holds that In this case It Is mani
fest the railroad "ha unduly and unjustly
discriminated In aom particulars against
colored passengers" and orders that where
th railroad provides a wash bowl and tow.
la In the coaohes for white passengers
and a separate smoking compartment, sim
ilar accommodations shall 'be provided for
negro passengers paying similar fare.
The complainant, who had purchased
a first-class ticket from Chattanooga, Tenn.
to Dalton, Oa., waa removed from a car for
white persons to one for negroes and com
plained that she was discriminated against
because of her color and not afforded eiual
facilities. Commissioner Lane, who ren-
Idered the decision of the commission, today
i held: "The expense of the small smoking
; compartment In the latter (the car for
; whites) accounts for nearly all th differ
ence tn cost between the two cars."
He holds In this way because the broad

Deadly Parallel No. 3.
The so-called independent, promoter is
trying to capitalize a franchiser that is,
he is asking you to invest money in a right
to do business. The right may be very
valuable or it may be worse than useless.
' His proposition to give a bonus of $50 or
$100 of stock with each $100 bond shows
watered stock at the very outset.
If disaster overtakes the new' company,
each bondholder who accepts the bonus of
common stock is liable under the Nebraska
law for the debts of the company. The
promoter will very naturally argue that the
new company will not meet with disaster,
but will prove a brilliant success, and yet
he must admit that a second telephone com
pany was never started in a city which wai
at the time of starting as well equipped
with telephones as Omaha. lie must ad
mit that copper, which is one of the chief
items of expense in telephone construction,
is twice as high now as it was a few years
ago, and that the total cost of construction
has increased about 40 per cent in two
The promoter must admit that the dull
bond market and the high prices of mater
ial were factors in the failure of the United
States Independent Telephone Company
which was capitalised for $50,000,000
and recently agreed to sell out the
control for about 10 cents on the dol
lar. He knows, if he won't admit it,
that most of the independent, telephone
compan' p have organized for the purpose
of obtaining promoter's profits and have
afterwards been unloaded upon the public,
being baited with dividends paid out of
capital instead of out of earnings.
The promoter is utterly unable -to tell
you certainly whether the independent tel
ephone securities which he offers you so
glibly will turn out on asset or a liability
against your bank account. If the promoter
builds now he must build at prices which
will be a perpetual drag on the revenue of
"his company. If the public does not take
hold of his service as readily as he hopes,
his plant, which has been built at almost
prohibitive prices and at a time -when even
good bonds are a drug upon the market,
will lie idle until it becomes involved in
debt beyond recovery. Even admitting that
he finds business for his plantj'Jie must
operate under the dual disadvantage of"
high cost of material and the high cost of
money. If he makes a good showing for
his bond holders it will be at the expense
of his subscribers.
