The people of this city may be given a
chance to see the old liberty bell In Omaha
in the early summer. The directors of the
Portland Rose Festival and the Alaska-
Paciflo exposition, which ie to be held on
the coast this year, have written the mayor
and the members of the city council of the
city of Philadelphia asking that they allow
the shipping west of the old bell which In

colonies. The dlnx'tors believe they will se
cure the privilege and have written Mayor
Dahlman to apprise him of the faet and to
notify him- that if Omaha proceeds to "get

routed this way. Should the bell be sent

10 ITew Terk Life ldf., Omaaa,
Formerly examining and consulting
dentist with U. Oordwa Martin. Inc..
City Attorney Burnham has prepared an
ordinance providing for an occupation tax
of from 2 to 3 per cent on the street rail
way company and the telephone companies
The Introduction of this ordinance Is de
pendent upon the decision of the supreme
court In a suit brought by the city of
Lincoln to collect an occupation tax from
the Lincoln Traction company.
Attorneys for the Omaha St Council
Bluffs Street Railway company and for the
Nebraska Telephone company of Omaha
appeared as friends of the court and as
sisted the local company In fighting the
case In the supreme court.
City Attorney Burnham has Interested
himself In the case to the extent that to
parties in Lincoln he said If the city won
the case he would Introduce such an ordi
nance in the Omaha city council and In
fact had the ordinance already drawn.
In the argumont before the supreme court
Judge Stewart, city attorney of Lincoln, In
answer to the statement by John L. Web
ster, counsel for the Omaha street railway
company, that his company could not af
ford to pay the tax, gave an Interesting
comparison of the valuation of the property
owned by the two companies In Omaha
' Comparison of Valaea.
" The value of the Lincoln Traction com
pany was placed by the State Railway com
mission at tl.lOO.OCO and this was based on
thirty-six miles of tracks. The Omaha
company, he showed, had 108 miles of track
and it was stocked and bonded for a valu
ation of $28.O0O,0liO In round numbers. On
this . valuation It pays annually a 6 per
cent dividend on the preferred stock and
4 per cent on the common. In addition it
pays ( per cent on Its outstanding bonds,
and $300,000 la set aside annually for de
preciation. The Omaha company, he said, Is only
three times as large or as valuable as the
Llnooln company, yet It Is paying divi
dends on a valuation nearly iweniy-six
times as Urge.
"The proposed ordinance Is simply In a
rough draft and we are not aa yet certain
Just what its provision -Ul be or Just
how much the tax win De, earn uiy av
torney Burnham. "Kor my part I am In
favor of waiting until a oecisiun im ren

"We found," said Deacon Jefferson, "that
tho only discrepancy In Bishop Williams'
affairs was that certain donations had been
raised In amount on the books, so as to
make It appear that more money had been
collected. The purpose of this was to
encourage other people to make liberal
contentions. But the committee found
that even these discrepancies were not
made by Bishop Williams. Indeed, they
were made while the bishop was out of the
city by one of his solicitors."
"That is all true." said the bishop. "I

CRANE 0NCEJ METHODIST
Clergyman in l.lmellahc at Worces

bent of Local First Ctaarch.
Rev. Frank Crane, the clergyman whose
unexplained resignation of his pulpit In the
First Congregational church at Worcester,
Msbs., has startled his parishioners, was
pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal
church In Omaha from 1892 to 1896.
Mr. Crane recently delivered three lec
tures at the University of Chicago, en
titled, "A Defense of Heresy," and while
thcNe were not so hair-raising as the title
might indicate, they are thought to have
played a part In bringing about his resig
nation, which his letter to the Worcester
deacons does not make clear.
Mr. Crane, who was well thought of In
vOmaha, came here from some small town
In Illinois and left to go to the Centenary
church In Chicago. He held another Meth
odist pulpit In Chicago and then went to
Worcester, also to a Methodist church. It
was there three years ago that he aban
