feet above the water. Mori-la Intended to

section and to climb down the series of
laddera reared within , the hollow ateel pier.
Standing on two steel pegs, grasping a
higher peg with on hand, he opened the
shutter. With a startling whirr of wings

The rush of the birds was so sudden thnt
Morris, trying to protect his eyes from the
flying Jarks-ln-the-box, lost his hold of the
peg and fell backward. Instant death
threatened him, but quick wltted and
muacular, he aeized an Inch rope which
dangled near him, hold it, and then wrap
ped his legs around It.
It was a guy rope fastened to the long
arm of the great aerial crane which raises
the tower's sections and swings them into
position. The crane'a base is at the other
end of the structure, a few yards below

Shouting to his fellow workers, he fell
with tho rope for a second. Then, aa the
rope pulled taut, he wua swung awlftly In
an arc directly toward the base of thn
tower. Collison with it might have crushed
him, almost surely would have broken his
hold. But the men working the crane had
seen Morris fall and acted quickly.
Before he had been carried more than a
third of the distance to the base the crane'a
arm halted, then reversed Its motion until
he hung over the river. Huge as Is tho

say the birds have been a nuisance, not a

LJKCOUt. Jan. l.-8peclal.)-8enator C.
II. Aldrlch, special counsel for the State
Kslh'nv commission, chosen to assist the
legal -department In the defenae of the
i. us biouxht by the railroads against the
commission, has completed his part of the
brief which will be filed by the legal de
partment In the United State a cjreuit oourt
at St. Louis during the corning . eek.
Senator AJdiich anawers In rise (brief the
argument of the rallroada that their busi
ness, being' largely Interstate transactions,
the sole control and supervision Is vested
in the United States. Senator Aldrlch re
views the commission law and the method
of procedure by which the commission pro
mulgates a rate, showing that the same
cannot be done until after a hearing; has
been held and only after a written com
plaint of the existing rate haa been made
by some shipper. In the present case. In
which the railroads are seeking an Injunc
tion to prevent the commission from pro
mulgating a rate, on grain, he said no
written complaint had been filed with the
commission and nothing would be done by
the commission until the complaint Is filed.
Consequently there Is no reason for the
request for an Injunction. In answer to
the allegation of the rallroada that to
change the Nebraska rate on grain will
not only disturb existing Interstate ratea,
but will discriminate In favor of Omaha
against Kansas City, Chicago and- Minne
apolis, Senator Aldrlch says:
"If lower rates are Just andV equitable
under evidence submitted at the propev
time Omaha and Nebraska are entitled to
them and the discrimination complained
of can be met by putting back tho rates
where they were before they were raised
to make the freight law In this atate in
effective." Nebraska Points Sailer.
Senator Aldrlch charges that the rail
roads have discriminated In favor of Chi
cago, Kansas City and Minneapolis, and
against Omaha and Nebraska, because It
Is Inconvenient to adjust charges on a basis
of a reduction In certain rates In Nebraska.
Regarding the railroad contention that they
would lose money if the interstate rates are
changed, the brief says It la a fact that
the rate law In Nebraska reduced the rate
on carload lots of grain IVi cents while the
railroads increased the interstate rates
cents, so conditions are about the same
Senator Aldrlch says Nebraska should
have a primary grain market In Omaha
Inasmuch as the city Is the gateway of the
fortlle territory west of the river, an has
enough buyers to handle all the grain
which could be shipped in there. However,
It is not recognised by the railroads as a
grain market. Nebraska, the brief says,
raises a better quality of wheat than
Kansas and almost as good as Minnesota,
but a'll the mixing has to be done In either
Kansas City, Chicago or Minneapolis, and
for that reason the wheat raisers of Ne
braska do not get value received for their
wheat. It is all due, he says, to the dls
crimination of the railroads against the
Omaha market. Nobraska wheat Is not
sold on sample from Omaha, but under
railroad manipulation from sample In Chi
cago or the other railroad favored cltlea,
In conludlng1 his brief, Senator Aldrlch said:
"We are here to derrand rlghta and priv
lieges and to ho allowed to do the things
which the sovorolfrnty, the Independence
and the liberty of the state of Nebraska
say we may do. This commission Insist.
that It bo allowed to resume the govern
mental functions delegated to It by the
fundamental law of the state, and under
and by virtue of this law a statute haa
been legally enacted defining Ita powors
and duties. These duties and thes powers
were delegated to this commission by iiic
lawmaking body of this sovereign stale
And as to its rights to do thla, the over.
whelming weight of authority from the
Munr.s case down In en unbroken chain
of doclslona proclaims the wisdom or the
provision, the necesalty for It and the right
to have It."
Proceedings Against Companies
Proceedings will bo Instituted by the
legal department of the state tomorrow
against the express compank-s doing bust
ness In this state which have not conv
plied with the demands of the railway
coimnistlon for Information. The greatest
offenders in the eyes of the commission are
the American and the Adams express com
panies, and againwt these two companies
the proceedings probably will be started,
rather than ugainst all the companies. The
coinmijaion has ancounced that It would
direct the attorney general to begin pro
ceedings, and unless tomorrow the attorney
general gt3 orders to the contrary there
la likly to be something dolig. The ex
press companies have had since August 1
to get this Information before the commls
slon, but when It came to a showdown the
commission was practically defied and the
Information refused. The companies
named refused to separate their state and
interstate business and refused to give the
salaries of the officers. The companies are
very reticent about their affairs, Inasmuch
as their tangible property Is very small as
represented by money, while their earnings
are enormous 13,000.000 for on company

jected at Lincoln.

COOKS DINNER IN BOTTLES
w Method of Preoarioai
Preserves the Nataral
Cooking as a fine art la now practiced by
Arthur Peley, a New Tork diamond setter.
who discards pots and pans and skillets
and employs only airtight glass bottles to
promote cullnsry perfection.
He has for the last two years been mak
ing experiments, and has reached the dla
tlnctlon of fashioning a cooking bottle
which he says will not explode, and at the
same time permits everything committed
to It To be done to the proper turn.
Mr. Peley noticed three yesrs ago that hla
daughter, In cooking red cabbage, threw
away the bright hued water In which the
vegetable was boiled, and It occurred to
him thst many of the valuable constituents
In foods must he waated In the process.
He accordingly began hla researches, and
he has devised a system which he thinks
will charge the whole scheme worked out
by Savarln and Vatel.
Hla plan suggests the vacuum pan pro
cess which Is used by makers of fine con
fections and of vegetable extrscts. It Is
something like thnt advocated by the many
vendors of patent steamers, yet It has Ideas
which are entirely new.
Substances to be cooked are crammed
tightly Into glass Jars without the addition
of any water. Th only moisture which Is
likely to appear Is derived from the natural
Juices. Carrots, cabbages, beets, green peas
and the like are closely packed Into .the
receptacles and meat Is treated on the
same principle. The top of the Jar Is
sealed either by a contrivance with a
screw top which Mr. Peley perfected or by
means of a rubber cork and wax. . ,
He haa been using fruit Jsrs and milk
bottles with equal facility. The Jara are
placed upright In large pails, half filled
with water. Iron holders and racks are
laid on the bottom of the metal vessels
and over these supports he haa wire net
ting. Thla keeps the glass containers from
the bottom of the pall and prevents their
bursting under the extreme hest which
might otherwise directly strike them. Then
the inventor puts another layer of netting
on the topa of the bottlea so that It will
support another consignment.
These preliminaries belnK- accomplished,
and the pall half filled with water, he
lights a fire and waits for developments.
Over the top of the vessel Mr. Peley puts
another receptacle and a layer of cheese
cloth. The water bolls, the steam rises and
the bottlea expand under the genial
warmth. The temperature to which their
contents are subjected Is about 210 de
Mr. Peley employed thermometers In
measuring the heat In the early atages of
his experiments and he never observed that
It exceeded that.
According to all the laws of physics the
bottles should blow up. Many of them did
when this glass cooking was first bnsun
and the diamond setting cook had to dodae.
He avers now that he so maintains the tern
perature that there Is no danger even with
It requires two hours to cook most veg
etables and meats. The process Is entirely
Odorless and all klnda of food may be
prepared without any suspicion of their
nature entering the minds of the neigh
bors. Onions may be cooked all day in
the glass receptacle without anybody be
ing the wiser. Instead of their wasting
their fragrance on the dumbwaiter shaft
air, the aroma Is conaerved and It pene
trates every fiber of tha vegetable.
"Onions cooked by my process," said Mr.
Peley. "are not criticised by the neigh
bors, and when the lid Is taken off the
bottle theyf are much stronger In flavor
than they 'would have been had their
aroma been permitted to dissipate. The
valuable salts and other constituents which
are usually thrown away with the water
which is used In the boiling are retained."
He showed a reporter for the Herald last
week many examples of his skill, includ
ing the cooking of cauliflower, beets, string
beans, Lima beans and the like.
"I am," he said, "especially proud of the
red Cabbage which Is prepared by ray
method. It is soft and tender and abso
lutely nothing Is lost. Tho beets, you
see, retain their beautiful red color. Cauli
flower in cooking gives off a perceptible
odor, but you certainly cannot observe
anything of the kind In this kitchen."
Cauliflower which he exhibited was
tinged a slight pinkish color and Waa
slightly darker In shade than the same
vegetable boiled under ordinary atmos
In the cooking of apples and strawber
ries Mr. Peley has been especially success
ful. The flavors and aroma of both these
fruits are well preserved, but the better
results have been reached with apples.
Pieces of apples were first rammed
tightly Into the bottle and cooked after
the method prescribed. The fruit tskes
on a faint pink hue. When one of the
Jara which was cooked three months be
fore was opened the contents were found
to have a delicate: odor, as tf the natural
Juices had been kept Intact. The flavor
was quite different from that of apple
sauce prepared In accordance with even
the best New England traditions. The
taste of It suggested that of the fruit
which Is incorparated Into some of the
best French pastries. Apple pie made with
bottle cooked fruit should commend Itself
to the connoisseur.
Mr. Peley cooks his own meals In ac
cordance with his Ideas. He says that po
tatoes and white beana fail to respond to
the method, but that for most things on
the bill of fare he believes that cooking

SOME W0NDERS OF FINANCE
Thousands in Money and Roods Lost
Yearly by the Carelessness k
Money and bonds, "lost, strayed or
stolen," In the financial operations of the
United States make an Interesting chapter
In our history. The quantities of money,
or its equivalent In paper, that have been
uncalled for or unclaimed amount to so
enormous a aum that it cannot be closely
estimated. It Is In the custody of the
government, though It may not be truly
classed as a public asset. Except possibly
In some cases, where enough was known
about dormant obligations to make It safe
to enter upon legal public appropriation of
such funds, there are values awaiting legal
claimants that date back In the lifetimes.
It could doubtless be ascertained from
the records of the Treasury department
how many dollars In United Statea notes,
commonly called greenbacks, have been
Issued through several decades, but any
estimate of the quantity of this paper
money that haa been lost In great fires, or
misfortune at sea. or In many other waya
has condumly disappeared, must Involve a
great deal of giifss work. It Is plain
enough, though, that many fortunes In
greenbacks, even estimated at present
view as to what la wealth, are beyond re
call. The greenbacks ar as good money
as there la. They are redeemable by th
government but they having been directly
Issued on the public taxing power, nobedy
Is likely to want the specie for tham, unless
speculators shouid again be In a position
to compel th government to Issue bonds to
get gold for redemption purposes. That
was th "game" during- the sliver excite
ment, but tha actual redainptlun of the
