CHICAGO. Oct. 14.-A Washington spe
cial to-the Record-Herald says that Inter
state Commerce Commissioner Iane, who
went to California in response to reports
from agents of the commission declaring
that the Southern Pacific Railroad com
1 pany was giving rebates and that proof
could be obtained, has returned to Wash
ington. -
The commissioner believes flagrant viola
tion of the - law can be proved, and It Is
the, present understanding that as soon as
the' facts collected are submitted to the full
commission, certification of the Illegal op
erations of the railroad will be made to the
Department of Justice with a request for
prosecution of those responsible. The law,
as It now stands, provides a two-years' Im
prisonment "fop each offense.
Whether Mr. irerrltrian can be Indicted
will depend upon whether 'his responsibility
for" the, alleged violations cvfMhe law can
be demonstrated. Members f the Inter-
state Cftmmerce. tommisslorf beJIeve It can.

According to Commissioner line's inves

lis September It of this year and during
I that part of September up to the 24th, the
road paid out In rebates to favored ship
pers $47,000. The evidence upon which the
Interstate Commerce commissioners will
base their charges was found In the books
of the company Itself.
It la' stated that upon the last day of
Commissioner Lane's stay in San Francisco

City Council Passes Bond Ordinance
for Paving West Q Street.
Conuell Also Creates Omce of' Rill
- Poster and Appolata Milk In

Several important ordinances were panned
oy the city council last night. The most.
Important of these was the general bond
ordinance for the paving of West Q street.
The amount of bonds suthorised were
34,COO. They are to be issued In denomi
nations of $1,000 each. The city clerk was
authorl&ed to readvertlse this Issue of
bonds In the Daily Bond Buyer. Bids will
b closed In two Weeks.
The ordinance for the paving of O
street was revised and amended, and the
bonds authorized, amounting to $1 K50,
These bonds were also advertised. The
ordinance (Mndemnlng private property . on
the right-of-way of the V street viaduct
was passed. The ordinance regulating bin
posting and defining the duties of the city
billposter was also passed. The ordinance
establishing the grade of Twenty-fifth
street from A to the city limits on the
north was carried.
Mayor Hoctor asked the council to ap
prove a recent plat .of N street place In
accord with a new division. He owns .e
The mayor explained that he had hired
Dr. A. H. Koenlg to make milk tests for
mally, and had agreed to pay him for the
work done. Dr. Koenig has put In a bill
for $225 for his service. The council has
been hesitating long about paying for the
work. With the explanation of the mayor,
Dr. Koenlg was, by motion, employed to
conduct milk tests and Instructed here
after to put In his bill every month.
Councilman Bulla introduced a motion In
structing the water company to locate two
fire hydrants In eaclt. ward and the light
company to establish 'two arc lights. Tho
places for these hydrants and tha lights
were not designated.

Davla Allowed, Four Dollars.
The case of 3. H. Davis, who susd tha
city for S2W, was tried before Judge Cald
well yesterday afternoon. Davis was em
ployed as an axman In the engineering de
partment and received his pay up to May
1. 1907. He waa refused pay after May 3
and, according tu the. contention of the
city, waa discharged. He, however, claimed
that he m-as never properly discharged and
he wanted pay for all the time after May 1
to the present. Judge Caldwell decided that
Davla was entitled to $4 and assessed tha
cost of the suit against the clt,y. In ren
dering this verdict the judge made the
following significant statement: "It la In
many ways a peculiar case. I find that,
although the records In the engineer's de
partment shows that Mr. Davis did not
work In that department on seventeen dif
ferent days, yet he received pay at the end
of the month In full as If he had worked.
It y appears that he was taken from the
work In this department by parties higher
in authority than the engineer and, as the
plaintiff has Intimated, put at more special
work for the administration. For this work
he was allowed his pay. Now. since he
claims that he worked on the two days In
question In the same manner as before,
when he did receive pay, I hold that for
these two days he be paid "
The legal department signified Its Inten
tion to advise the payment of the claim In
accordance with the judgment rendered.
Not so with Davis, he at once gave no
tice of appeal and will contend in the dis
trict court that he la entitled to full re
muneration from and after the 1st of May
to the present time.
Spread of Smallpoa.
Nearly twenty cuses of smallpox of mild
form were reported from the Brown Park
district yesterday and Sunday. It la be
lieved that most of the exposures were In
the school, probably from some child who
was so slightly affected that tha disease
went entirely unnoticed either by the pa
rents or the teachers. All the rases ara
very mild, little more than a slight rash
appearing. As fast aa new cases come to
notice the whole family Is placed under
quarantine. The Brown Park school has
not been closed, but there Is serious talk
of closing It. W. A. McCllntock, the health
officer, aald If It was within his power he
would close the school temporarily. He
sent notice to Sheriff McAvoy of Sarpy
county asking that quarantine be placed
on some Sarpy county families who have
developed rases just outside the South
Omaha Ifiults. .
