WASHINGTON. Aug": 17. Court proceed
ings by William Loeb. jr., collector of the
port of New York, are said to hang over
the heads of a local labor leader. Mr.
Loeb has wrltteu to Samuel De Nedrey,
the deitur of a local trades union paper,
protesting vigorously against a recent ar
ticle in the paper staling that Mr. Loeb
contemplates appointing Charles A. Sail

and which concluded with the question:
"Who was at the head of the audit sys

at what he believes to be a veiled Insin

system which was Inaugurated at the gov
ernment printing office by Mr. Stilling
and which, ultimately, was responsible pri
marily for the resignation of Mr. Stillings
an public printer.
Mr. Loeb Intimates that It is his inten

PROMISE FROM WASHINGTON
Following is a general bulletin
sent out from the Washington
offics of the Weather bureau:
"The severe warm wave In the
middle western states will be
broken In the plain states and In
the Missouri valley tonight, and In
the states of the middle and npper
Mississippi valley and lower Ohio
Wednesday, and the fall in temper
ature In these state's will be at
tended by showers.
"There are at present no Indica

disturbance from the west will ap
pear In the extreme northwest
Thursday, adranoe along- the plain
statss, oentral valley and (treat
Xakea rrlday and Saturday and
reach the Atiantio coast about Sun
day." Omaha was given relief from the torrid
heat and prostrating humidity which held
the city in their grasp for three days,
when early this morning the temperature
shifted downward a few decrees, bringing
a light shower and a cool, refreshing
breeze from the north. The skies were
overcast with clouds until 10 o'clock, when
they began breaking away, and by 10:30
the sun shone forth brilliantly again, but
not with the wilting effect that produced a
harvest of death in Omaha and many other
cities Sunday and Monday.
With the temperature lower than for
three days, Forecaster Welch still pre
dicts cooler weather for Omaha tonight
and probably showers. This morning it was
much coukr in the upper Missouri valley,
and the same conditions were promised for
Omaha tonight. There was no rain worthy
of mention in Nebraska today.
At 1 o'clock this morning Uie government
thermometer registered 76 degrees. The
normal temperature (tor the day was re
ported to be 75 degrees.
Death Hull Lessened.
The reduced temperature brought an end
to the prostrations and deaths from the
excessivu heat, and not one case was re
ported at the hospitals or police station
during the morning. Two deaths occurred
early this morning from the effects ot
Monday's scorching heat. These brought
the total of the heat victims for the last
three days up to twenty-one. Not all theje
deaths were directly due to heat, but the
doctors ascribed the general humidity a.j
a contributory cause.
An unidentified man, found at the Six
teenth slieet viaduct Monday afternoon,
died at St. Joseph's hospital at 6 a. m.
His death was due to the heal. He weighed
about 2.U Militias and suffered great pain
ut the hospital. He wa-s attended by Dr.
Harris, who worked two hours over itlin in
an effort to gel his blood to circulating.
K. W. (iiiffin, advance agent for the
"Cowboy and the Thief," died at the Lange
hotel at 3 a. m. He suffered greatly frotu
the heat Monday afternoon and retired
early last niynt complaining about being
very weak. This morning he was found
dead in his bed. His home Is at Cloveriiale,
The ra-s of prostration which occurred
Monday were reported as doing nicely this
morning, and it was expected that all the
heat patients would recover.

LAWS FOR HOTEL KEEPERS
Statutory Regulation of His Business
UNIFORMITY IS GREATLY DESIRED
State Legislation Snoalit Be F.ven and
tiood Should Not Be Made to
Suffer Because of the
The general trend of papers and discus
sions at the hotel men's meeting Tuesday
morning was the vagaries of excise and
hotel legislation, and the effect these
measures have upon hotels in all parts of
the United States.
John J. Bohn of Chicago, editor of the
Hotel World, read an elaborate paper on
this subject, In which he took the ground
that It is the greatest question now before
the hotel men. He spoke ot the Brooks
hotel law of Pennsylvania, which is the
result of a conference between the hotel
men and a number of the best lawyers of
the Keystone state, whereby the most sat
isfactory hotel law in the United States
has been evolved. At present, outside of
the state of Pennsylvania, the hotel men
were at the mercy and caprice of Innum
erable state, county and municipal laws
and there Is practically no uniformity.
Even Destroy Business.
"So complex are these laws that they
are a travesty on law and good govern
ment," said Mr. Bohn. "In many instances
tl.ey have resulted in the destruction of
business. There seems to be no possibility
of relief from excise legislation except by
federal legislation. The Fame principles
could be made to apply in such federal
enactment as in the pure food laws and
postal laws and thus secure the protection
of uniformity. If prohibition is to come. It
is better that It shall come in all the
He suggests that hotel men of the country
unite on all these questions and thus se
cure uniformity of hotel laws. He did not
believe that reputable hotels should be
made to suffer because of the defiance of
law by disreputable saloons and disreput
able hotels, and that the hotel which is
the domicile of the traveling public Is
entitled to a better excise law than the
saloon or dramshop.
1'onihlnes for Protection.
Rome Miller of Omaha read a paper
along similar lines, urging that the hotel
men get together for mutual protection.
He spoke of the laws of the Nebraska leg
islature passed by the last general as
sembly, some of which he characterized
as sumptuary and as consistent aa would
be a law prescribing the kind and quantity
of furniture to be placed in the hotel
rooms and prescribing the bill of fare. Mr.
Miller believed the remedy lay In making

which would bear this out. The court re
fused to reduce ball from SoO.OOO and the
pi isoner ente.red no plea, the case going
over to Monday.
Mr. Jerome told the court that from
what he had ascertained the Windsor Trust
company was In no way responsible. The
release of the securities to Persch, he said,
was due entirely to the act of an employe.
Stirling Birmingham, head of the loan de
partment of the trust company, It will be
recalled, has been discharged In this con
nection. Leonard J Fields, head of the curb
