mns the elimination of . a large amount
of fcuylii which the United States does
with trnplral countries nnj English
colonies, which now aril a sjreat deal more
In thin lountry than they buy. according
to Harold M. Fltt, representative of the
Manila Merchants' aaxtwIatlonH, who spent
Monday In Omaha.
Mr. Pitt called at the Commercial club
and had a conference with H. H. Bal
ririge, chairman of the legislative com-
mittee of the club. He la making- the
loimda of the big marxet cities In the hope
of creating public sentiment favorable to
the passage of bllla In congress permitting
free trade with the Philippines on all
article. He wanta the Omutia Oommeriral
club to adopt a resolution to congress.
"Tha first thing It mi-am la that there,
will be a more equitable balance between
the buying and selling which the United
States does annually with tropical coun
tries." ays Mr. Pitt. "It means the money
of the country will go to Islands where
Americans have big Interests and not to
foreign countries. Brsall Is a good example
of the halanoe at present. In that country
we buy annually lI'M.Oiin.rno worth of pro
ducts and sell a? Prar.il about im.mn.fKPO
north of our factory output and other pro
duets. "Our contention Is that when the Philip
pines are developed as they will be In a
few years, and with favorable tariff laws
the Islands will be able to supply almost
everything which we now buy from Brazil
or any other seml-tropleal country."
Another argument which Mr. Pitt pre
sents for free trade with the islands la
that' with the development of trade the
L'nlted States will build great warehouses
In the Philippine Islands and distribute
from them to t'hlna, where a good trade
la .being established by the wholesalers
already In the Islands. It Is just another
step forward the placing of l'nlted States
distributing depots one point further west
In lta r.nnouept for trade and will enable
the American republic to control the com
merce of the Purine, not alone that of

Two Omalln lads are wearing bandaged
and plastered-strapped heads this week as
the result of a rock thrown at another
person, while the young man for whom thu
inlNBlle was Intended still walks the streets
without having experienced even a scratch.
Karl Kemv!tt. 1723 Dodge Street, Is the
lad who threw the rock and Is now under
surveillance f Probation Officer Bernstien.
An usher at the Palm moving picture
theater, Kntn U-inth and Douglas streets,
was the one for whom the rock was In

day, for the alleged throwing of marbles
or some other nrfense, young Kennett Im

Colored Man Asks Judge for Thirty

p'ead guilty ef yu'H gimme thirty
That was the proposition made to Police
Judge. Crawford by Hiram Ingram Monday

"I's tired of acrubbin' flo's an' curyln'

That a man should he willing to take a
lung Jail sentence when a short one is all
the Judgu usually Imposes for coal stealing,
U accounted for only by Ingram's natural
aversion to labor. He knows from experi
ence that on short sentences a prisoner
stays at the city Jail and has to work as
a Janitor, barn fiaod or street sweeper.

Me a Citizen"
Foreign Veteran of Civil War Put Up
Novel Argument to Federal
"Certainly I am a citizen." declared Wll
lUm Jonnson to Assistant l'nlted States
Attorney Walter F. Daly In Omaha again
Monday to make foreign-born full citisens.
but as it happened he was compelled to
unmake a few.
Not so In the case of Johnson, how
"I was made a ciiisen," id Johnson
"by virtue of a proclamation of President
IJncoln, who made all foreign born soldiers
full citisens." ,,
Johnson displayed two honorable dis
charges from civil war regiments with
which he served five full years.
There is no proclamation such as John
son Imagined, but Mr. Daly directed
Deputy Clerk Steele to look up Johnson'
rase and see if there was any record of
his being naturalised. It was found that
Johnson, who Is an (englishman bom,
took out flist papers September 17. 1869. He
waa accordingly an alectoi' of . Nebraska
when the territory n admitted and be
came a full tit lien of the United Stales
In this way.
Three rmii appeared as witnesses of oth
ers seeking" to take out final papers and
they thumaelves already naturalized citi
zens, were 'unhorsed when their papers
wera looktd up. The men they aought to
aid also toat out, of course, but only for
the time being. .
, John Charles Tully, born la County
Mobsgan, Ireland, failed to qualify be
cause lie took out his first papers in lfl
when, according to his own showing, he
was not n years old, as ha must have
been by the old law.
