(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, April lt.-(8peclal.) The State
Railway commission met today with a
number of telephone men to discus a
uniform system of reports to be made to
the commission. The commission had pre
pared tentative report, which waa sub
mitted to the telephone men, wbc offered
several suggestions for changes. The com
mission will shortly Issue an order defining
just what shall be contained In the reports.
Those present at the meeting were L. EL
Hurts of the Lincoln Telephone company;
F. E. Ebersols of the Omaha. Independent;
C. P. Russell, auditor of the Lincoln com
pany; W. C. Bell of the York Independent
company; A. 8. Kelley, superintendent of
the Nebraska Telephone company ; W. A,
Plxley, auditor of the Nebraska company;
Lee Huff, local mansger of the Nebraska
company; Khrles C. Deerlng, manager.
Omaha Long Distance company; C. P.
Avery of Edgar; W. H.. Coman of Beat
rice; P. H. Pollock of Plattsmouth.
Some More Incompetency.
Another bad bill turned up today. The
measure which provided for the railroads
to install telephones in their offices and
yardes does not contain the signature of
the lieutenant governor. This Is consid
ered a very Important omission, but It was
not caught by the governor or the commit
tee on enrolled bills or any member of the
late lamented aggregation of job makers.
However, the court has held In a former
case this cuts no Ice If the record of the
bill's passage Is straight.
Admits Tbeft of Diamond.
Police station third degree work brought
an admission from Bert Brown, en erst
while resident of . Chicago and now a
drifter, that he took the diamond ring of
Mrs. Thorn burg from the dresser in her
room at 416 South Seventeenth street,!
Wednesday morning. Brown was arrested
Thursday night, and Friday afternoon he
confessed to having stolen the ring.
The ring was a small, gold circlet with
a brilliant diamond setting. Brown had
sold the ring to William Walworth of 616
North Sixteenth street, who sent the ring
to the station to have it Identified after he
had read the account of the theft. '
Brown was arrested by Officer Creesey.
Trouble in Firm.
High finance In the management of the
American Window Cleaning company, has
lead to the disruption of that concern,
according to the statement of John Bern
stein, on of the . organisers, and he asks
the district court to dissolve the partner
ship, to decree a division of the property
and to allow him damages against the
other members of the company for with
drawing more than their shares of the
profits and withholding the share of ths
plaintiff. Charles Grossman, Solomon Zleg
er, Max Huraburg, A. Juchoff, are named
as defendants In the suit and are said to
be co-partners with the plaintiff In the
window washing business.

The annual . meeting of the grand' lodge
of the Ancient Order of United Workmen
In thin state, will be held in the Auditor
ium in Lincoln, May 11, next. The session
will last four days and more than 1,000
members are expected. Six hundred lodges
from all parts of the state will send dele
gates to the meelng.
The four Lincoln lodges have chosen a
committee on entertainment and arrange
ments. The members of the committee are

divided Into subcommittees so that certain
members will have charge of the various
matters that will be necessary to entertain
the big meeting. The committee has been

- Hamilton Appeals Case.
The county of Hamilton has appealed an
Interesting case to the supreme court, after
having lost out In its own district court.
The county brought suit against Jasper B.
Cunningham, county treasurer, tor inter
est on county money deposited in banks
other than county depositories. It was al
leged that the dally balances deposited In
these banks amounted to 130,000 on ths aver
age and that the treasurer mads no record
of having received any interest on ths
deposits.
Emergency Clans Overworked.
It Is barely possible that some one will
attack the enforcement of some ol the
new lews which carry the emergency
clause, when it Is very evident no emer
gency existed. The new law relating to
the payment of fees by foreign corporations
carries an emergency clause. A lot of
other laws carry the emergency. Should
anyone be arrested for violating a law
which carries ths emergency clause when
no real emergency existed and the violation
was through Ignorance of the existence of
the law, attorneys say the accused would
have a defense In an attack on the emer
gency clause of the law. .

on a Nice Trip.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. April 16.-8peclal.)-Ha! Ha
would be ex-Colonel Fanning! Ha! Hal
Commander-in-Chief Shallenberger of the
state ef Nebraska Is going to taks his
colonels those In good standing to ths
Senattle exposition. August 17 has been
set apart as Nebraska day. Now Nebras
ka, through Its legislature, refused to make
an appropriation for an exhibit so the gov
ernor will take his colonels out to make
up for the lack of the exhibit.
Under this arrangement there will be
nothing to detract frSra the colonels snd
all the honor due to Nebraska will be con
ferred upon them.
Just how Governor Shallenberger will
treat Cokmel Fanning on this trip has not
been figured out. It Is possible that he
will take him along In chains.
Colonel Spans, the new recruit, will be
taken as ths handsomest product of the
rtate, while ths status of Colonel Kuncl.
whose democratlo friends requested him
to resign. Is yet up in ths air.
Adjutant General Hartlgan today made
the formal announcement of the contem
plated trip. If railroads get up an excur
sion the colonels will go on that.
Half Minute More Talk
Have you ever stopped to consider the
changed conditions under which Clothes are
sold in Omaha as compared to a year ago?
Almost every store is now the largest (?).
Almost every store has the best (?) clothes
snd you couldn't (?) possibly get a poor
suit Almost all you are wanted (?) to do
Is to "look" snd the "gusrantee" Is so strong
(?) you are hardly expected to keep ( ?) any
thing you buy. Showing goods has become
a sort of Pink Tea affair. Well, well, we
were pretty sure our modern methods would
change things but we didn't think It could
be done so quickly.

Explaining "Resist" Dyes
We've been asked to explain the term
"Resist" dye. We quote in part from the
Apparel Gazette, of May 6, 1908. "The
materials, either of wool or worsteds,
which are to show the pattern in color or
contrast, are treated, either in raw stock,
or preferably, In the yank of yarn as fol
lows: After being dyed they are boiled for
two or three hours In a solution of tannic
acid, then wrung out or drained, but with
out being; washed, and entered into a bath
of 15 per cent antimony salts (some use
tartar emetic), in which case the yarn is
boiled one or two hours more. It is then
well rinsed, and when dried is ready to be
woven in the undyed cloth" The woven
fabric is then piece-dyed, and the threads
so treated "resist" the action of the body
dyes. Because he doesn't have to watch
for Imperfect yarns the weaver is enabled
to run two looms Instead of one. This is
the process that is being used to Imitate
yarn-dyed fabrics."

Grand Island Man
Killed in Flames
of Store Building
Frank Miller Caught in Basement and
Suffocated by Sense Smoke
Building is Gutted.
GRAND ISLAND. Neb., April IS. (Spe
cial Telegram.) Fire this morning de
stroyed the Miller & Ogorman furniture
house, and Frank Miller, senior member of
the firm, was killed while in the basement
of the building.
Miller's body was found in the ruins only
partly incinerated. It Is believed death was
due to suffocation tn the dense smoke that
filled the basement of the building.
When the fire was discovered he and an
employe, William Johnson, ran down to
see whether the smoke came from the
basement Miller came dashing up tho
stairs after viewing the basement anil
cried that everything was afire. He rushed
back, evidently to see what could be done,
and has not been seen since.
Johnson, who managed to get out of the
basement. In some manner he cannot him
self explain, states that he saw Miller last
on the elevator. Johnson's hands were
severely burned, his hair and eyelashes
singed and he was burned about the face.
Johnson stated that the fire started In a
lot of mattresses, the smoke Immediately
becoming so thick that no one could venture
Into the building. The fire was still burning
at noon, but was confined - to the brick
building in which the store wss located.
with no present danger of spreading.
The loss on stock will be almost com
plete, and the loss on the building will be
about ene-half. A total estimate places it
at 130,000. Miller leaves a wife and six
children, the oldest about 16.
Shortly sfter noon the fire was brought
under control. The building is completely
gutted.

Chatelain Freed
Shooting Charge
Peru Justice of Peace Permitted to
Go by Court as Result of Hal
lowe'en Scrape.
AUBURN, Neb., April 18.-(Sj4clal.) The
preliminary examination of J. C. Chatelain
of Peru, charged with shooting at Wil
liam Colby wtlh intent to do great bodily
harm and charged wtlh shooting L. R.
Dillon wtlh intent to wound, was held be
fore County Judge Parrlott yesterday. The
result was that the judge refused to hold
Chatelain to the district court and dis
charged him.
The case has been standing since Novem
ber last and grew out of a Hallowe'en
party on the first of that month. Chate
lain is a Justice of the peace at Peru and
during the night of November 1 was In
formed that some boys were turning over
his sidewalk tn front of his store. Ho put
his revolver in his pocket and took a Ian
tern and started down town. On his way
down he met a bunch of about thirty boys
In the street and told them to consider
themselves under arrest.
About this time Colby gave his lantern a
kick, which caused It almost to flicker
out; when It flamed up Dillon, who was
standing near, noticed that Chatelain was
In the act of shooting Colby and struck
his arm, which act saved Colby's life, as
the bullet barely missed him. Dillon then
grabbed Chatelaln's arms snd In the strug
gle, Chatelain shot Dillon in the leg. Chat
elain la an excitable person and was evi
dently laboring under the impression that
he was being mobbed. He did not know
who Dillon was when he fired the shot and
felt very badly about It, as he and Dillon
were the bets of friends. '

'COFFEE DOESN'T HURT ME"
Tales That Are Told.
"I was ons of the kind who wouldn't be
Iteva that coffee was hurting me," says a
N. T. woman. "You Just couldn't convince
me Its use was connected with the heart
and stomach trouble I suffered from most
of the time.
"My trouble finally got so bad I had to
live on milk and toast almost entirely for
three or four yeara. Still I loved the coffee
and wouldn't believe it could do auch dam
age. "What I needed waa to quit coffee and
take nourishment In such form as my stom
ach could digest.
"I had read much about Post urn, but
never thought It would fit my case until
one day I decided to Quit coffee and give
it a trial and make sure about it So 1 got
a package and carefully followed the di
rections. "Soon I began to get better and was able
to eat carefully selected foods without the
sld ot pepaln or other dlgeatants and it
was not long before I was really a new
woman physically.
"Now I am healthy and sound, can eat
anything and everything that comes along
and I know this wonderful change Is all due
to my having quit coffee and got the
nourishment I needed through this dell
clous Postum.
"My wonder Is why everyone don't give
up the old coffee and the troubles that gu
with it and build themselves up as I have
done, with Postum."
Easy to prove by 10 days trial of Postum
In place of coffee. The reward Is big.

pledges. This bobble occurs In the bill
nlnch appropriates $2,000 to pay back to ths
members of the S' Idlers' homes money
which they have paid to the state under
rule No. 17. The bill provides no way for
the Slate Board of Public Lands and Build

they have paid tho money to the state.
Ru'e No. 1? dots not provide that the sol

The bill dots not even provide how the
money Is to be paid to the soldiers or by
whom.

Wired Money Order
Then Collected It
Scheme Worked by Telegrapher Who
Found Station Agent at
Alda Out.
GRAND ISLAND, Neb., April 16. (Special)
Lccal police officers bave not. for a long
time, run across a more smoothly planned
out scheme for touching the banks than
that alleged to have been worked out by
one Carl H. Peterson, alias C. H., Paddock,
row held here on the charge of forging a
telegraphic order on the First National
Bank of Wood RlveT. ,
On February 17 the bank cashed a tele
graphic order for KO to the man Peteraon,
as alleged, only to ascertain that the bank
in South Dakota had not sent the telegram
delivered by the Western Union ageut at
Wood River.
The officials kept the matter quiet and
engaged In a still hunt, which led to the
arrest yesterday, at Waverly, of Peterson.
An officer of the bank has come to the
county seat and Identified Peterson as ths
.identical chap who secured the money.
It Is related that Peterson is a telegraph
operator. That he went to Alda, a small
station seven miles west of here and eight
miles east of Wood River, watched for an
opportunity when the agent of the railway
company was out on other duties, slipped
In, took the key and sent the telegram to
Wood River. Then he walked to Wood
River, atopping on the way at a farm home
to which a 'phone wire ran, and calling up
the bank.
He stated that he expected a telegraphic
order for SoO from South Dakota, and
might arrive In Wood River a little late
would they wait a few minutes for him. If
he should be delayed. It would only be a
few minutes. Then Peterson showed up
approximately at closing time, secured the
money and left. He had disappeared when
the bank ascertained that the order was.
In some manner, fraudulent Peterson has
not acknowledged guilt, but the local of
ficers believe he will "come through,"
committee has called the committee to
meet Tusday, April 27, at 8 o'clock at the
headquarters in Lincoln.
The meeting Is for the purpose of dis
curslng the coming campaign and the nomi
nation of candidates. This year the judges
of. the supreme court and the regents of
the University of Nebraska are to be elected
without the formality of a state-wide pri
mary, unless the law Is knocked out in the
courts, and the meeting Is to discuss the
situation in lis various phases.
