of the storm. Street railways are running

Hopeful conditions were held out this

Schlavone. uncle of Angelina, three years
ago told the girl to get all the money she
could from hwr father' bank, to bring It
to him and ho would save It for her and
when she hud a snug amount she could
mnrry his son, Michael. -
The girl was employed In her father's
hank and It Is alleged that her thefts ag
gregated $30,000 before she waa detected.
When money from the bank waa found
In her possession she told her object In
taking It and declared that, being crippled,
she feared she would be unable to marry
and so had tried to win a husband with
her father' money.
Michael Schlavone Is Iaroo and Is five
years the senior of-hla emistng Angeline.
Th eight defendants to the conspiracy
charged are all relatives of Pasquole
Schlavone, the banker.

DENVER, Colo., Deo. 27.-D. II. Moffat,
president of the Denver Northwestern &
Pacific railroad, known as the "Moffat
road," this afternoon emphatically denied
a story published in a local paper to the
effect that the Rock Island system had
acquired control of th Moffat road.
The report was based on an assertion
that the stock of the James, Peak tunnel
project had been withdrawn. This waa a
15,000,000 corporation, the object of which
was to drive a bora through. .James Peak,
thus reducing materially the heavy grades
on the east end of tha Moffat road.
"There'a not a word ef truth tn It," aald
Mr. Moffat to the Associated Press. "The
Moffat road la not sdld and It la not going
to be sold. There never was but $2,(0
worth of stock of the Jamas Peak tunnel
project Issued, anyway, and that ti in
the safe of the Moffat road.' It's going to
stay there. No on from th Rook Island
system has ever1 seen about the possible
of the road, and I do nt ex-

MEN OR MONEY? PINCI10T
Chief Toregter Says Conservation Hai
Become Moral Problem.
GREAT QUESTION OF FUTUHE
Derlnrea Attacks on "erTlce In.
crrsw In Illtterneaa Jnat aa
Srrvloe Drrnmri Mora
NEW YORK. Dec. 2. "Special inter
est have made repeated attacks on the
United Statea Forest service and those
attacks hav Increased In violence Juit
In proportion a the service has offered
effective opposition to predatory wealth,"
said Qlfford Pinchot. chief of the United
States Forest service, 'n a speech today
before a number of prominent publishers
at the University club. Mr. Pinchot took
aa tha aubject for hla speech at th Peo
ple' Forum "Conservation and Equal
Opportunity." Mr. Pinchot said:
"The American people hav evidently
made up their minds that our natural re
sources must b conserved. That la good,
but It settles only half the question. For
whoa benefit shall they be conserved
for th benefit of the many, or for the
uso and profit of tha few? Th great
conflict now being fought will decide.
Ther Is no other question before us that
begins to be ao Important or that will
be so difficult to straddle as the great
question between special Interest and
equal opportunity; between th privil
eges of th few and th rights of the
many; between government by men for
human welfare and government by money
for profit, between the men who stand for
the Roosevelt folltlces and the men who
stand against them. Thl la th essence
of the conservation problem today.
Conservation Moral lasae.
"The conservation icsue la a moral lswue.
When a few men get possession of one of
the necessaries of 'life, either through
ownership of a natural resource or
through unfair profits, aa in the recent
cases of the sugar trust and the beef
packer, they injur the average man
without good reason, and they are guilty
of a nioi ai wrong.
"I believe In one form of government and
I believe lu the Golden Rule. But we
must face the truth that monopoly of the
aourcea of production makes it Impossible
for vaat numbera of men and women to
earn a fair living. Right her the conaer
vatlon queatlon touchea the dally life of
the great body of our people, who pay
the coat of special privilege. And th price
is heavy. That price may be the chance
to save the boys from the saloons and the
Corner gang, and the girls from worse,
and to make good citizens of them Instead
of bad, for an appalling proportion of the
tragedies of life spring directly from the
luck of a little money. Thousands of
daughters of the poor fell Into the hands
of the white slave- traders because their
poverty leaves them without protection.
Thousands of families, as the Pittsburg
survey has shown ua, lead Uvea of brutal
izing overwork In return for tho barest
People Victims of. Plunder.
"The people of this country have lost
vastly more than they can ever regain by
gifts of public property, forever and with
out charge, to men who gave nothing in
return. It ia true that we have made su
perb material progress under this system,
but it Is not well for us to rejoloe too
freely In the slicen the special interests
have given, ua from th great loaf of the
property of all the people.-.
"Tha.peopl of tho . United -Statea have
been the complacent victims of a system of
plunder often perpetrated by. men who
would have been surprised beyond measure
to be accused of wrongdoing, and many of
them in their private Uvea were model
citizens. But they have suffered from
curious moral perversion by which it be
comes praiseworthy to do for" a corpora
tion things which they would refuse with
the loftiest scorn to do for themselves.
Fortunately for us, all that delusion Is
passing rapidly away.
Bitter Attacks on Service.
"It la the honorable distinction of the
foiest service that it has been mure con
stantly, more violently, and more bitterly
attacked by the representatives of thaspe
clal Interests In recent years than any
other government bureau. These attacks
have Increased in violence and bitterness
Just In proportion as the service has of
fered effectite opposition to predatory
wealth. The more successful we have been
In preevntlng land grabbing and the
absorption of water power by th special
interests, the more Ingenious, the more
devious and the more dangerous these
attacka have become. A favorite one is
to assert that th forest service, In Its
seal for the public welfare, has, played
ducks and drakea with the acta of con
gress. "The fact Is, on the contrary, that thu
Service has had warrant of law for every
thing It has don. Not once since it was
created haa any charge of illegality, despite
the most searching investigation and the
bitterest attack, ever led to reversal or
reproof by either house of congress or by
any congressional committee.
Attempt to Cnrb Publicity.
"Another, and unusually plausible, form
of attack, ia to demand that all land not
now bearing trees shall be thrown out ot
the national forests.
"Still another attack, nearly successful
two years ago, waa an attempt to prevent
the forest service from telling the people,
through the press, what it Is accomplishing
for them, and how much this nation needs
"Sine the forest service called public
attention to the rapid absorption of the
water power sites and the threatening
growth of a great water power monoply,
the attacks upon it hava Increased with
marked rapidity. I anticipate that they
wil continue to do so. Stll) greater op
position Is promised In the near future.
Ther la but one protection, I mean,
awakened public opinion. That Is why 1
give you th facts."

The agitation that for several years past
has been directed against the wholesale
cutting of young evcrgreena for Christmas
trees haa become sufficiently general to
warrant club women devoting their atten
tlon to other abuses Incidental to the
Christmas Reason. More Intelligent giving
especially by churches and charitable or
ganizations, has received not a little at
tention from club women, and the Investi
gation that has attended their efforts has
converted them to the wisdom of the plan
of the Associated Charities. There Is noth
ing spectacular about this system and,
tnougn many are prone to regard it as
too practical and cold, as a matter of fact,
It ia doing more to foster the real Christ-
maa sentiment than the old wholesale plan
of indiscriminate Christmas giving to chil
dren. Several Omaha women who have worked
In the various mission of the city tor
many years have recently conducted a
private, but fairly general Investigation
among the children they have touched
through these classes and a.l are agreed
that there la need of closer co-operation
among the organizations that supply
Christmas gifts and Christmas dinners to
tho alleged "poor" of the city. It Is not
their Intention, however, to withdraw from
the mission work, but to devote their ef
forts to a more intelligent charity. The
Young W'omen's Christian association
through Ita school of domestic science and
extension branch will teach food values,
cookery, how to buy provisions and cloth
ing and other household arts. Plain sew
ing, dressmaking and millinery will be
taight by experienced women volunteers
frcm the churchea and various organiza
tions and the principles of nursing, first
aid and sanitation will be taught by others.
The women believe that the same moral
Influence may be exerted through the social
aide of auch classes as Is now In classes
of less practical nature. The social settle
ment haa afforded an admirable Illustra
tion of the wisdom and th benefits of in
telligent, discriminating - effort and the
women have not been slow to recognize
the better system. -

Attorneys In the recent case In which
th Iowa supreme court held that the
civil rights law of Iowa did not require
that at a pure food show coffee should be
served free to negroes, have asked for a
rehearing and base it largely on the faot
that the court Intimated that even In the
caae of soda fountains it might not be
illegal to discriminate. The attorneys con
tend that the modern soda fountain is In
fact a place where refreshment are eerved
and the law covers it Just as much as a
cafe or a hotel.
