tative George W. Norrta of the Fifth dis
trict has been Invited to come to this
city and help in the reception, which Is
to be accorded to President Taft one
week from today. The Invitation urging'
Congressman Norris to be In the city
on that date was sent to the Red Yellow
county man last week, but up to date
no reply has been received from him. The
affair Is to be placed upon a bi-partisan
basis and both democrats and republicans
will aid In entertaining the president

the Fifth district man Is an insurgent

who disposed to look upon the matter
charitably assert that they hope that Nor

the matter, today refused to honor a
requisition for the return of Mrs. Julia
Howard to Glen wood, la., where a war
rant was issued for her some time ago

two sons of her first husband. Mrs.
Howard told the governor that she had
not enticed the children away from the
first wife, who lives in the Iowa town,
but that they had come of their own
accord and with the permission of their
mother, the first wife of John Howard
of this city. The children substantiated
Mrs. . Howard's story during the hearing
and told Governor Aldrtch that their
mother Had given them permission to
come here to live when they had been
asked by Mrs. Julia Howard.

Basil Mullen Must
Serve Out His Term
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Neb.. 8ept. . 4 Special.)
No pardon Is to be granted to Basil Mul
len, one of the young men convicted of
the mur-ler of Ham Fak, a Chinaman, at
Omaha. Mullen is serving", sentence of
twenty years. His companions. Pum
phrey and Almack. sen each sentenced
to life Imprisonment.
Judge Sears and County Attorney Eng
lish, who tried the case In Omaha, both
recommended a pardon for Mullen, be
cause clemency was shown to the other
two men. It was sileged that he turned
state's evidence. But the pardon board
paid no attention to these claims. Mem
bers sa:d that a pardon might be granted
to the man after be bad served a consid
erable portion of bis sentence, but they
thought It unwise to allow him his lib
erty at this time.
Governor Aldrtch today upheld the
board' a action.
The governor approved the recommend
ation for a pardon for John Pettiplece
of Dawes counts-. Pettiplece was given
a year tn the penitentiary for killing two
horsea the property of one of his neigh
bors. He Is said to have had consider
able provocation for the deed. The board
pardoned bim largely because he has a
family to support.
GRAND ISLAND MUNICIPAL
PLANT ON PAYING BASIS
GRAND ISLAND. Neb.. Sept. SL Spe
clal.) John M. Gilchrist, certified public
accountant and Insurance examiner for j
the state of Nebraska, has Just com- ;
pleted an examination of the books of the I
light and water commissioner's office of j
this city and finds the water department
of the city's combined lighting and water
plant to have made a surplus over oper
ating expenses of K.41S for the year end
ing April 30, with a total surplus of S1&.
iHLSt since the expert accounting was be
gun a few years ago, and the l.ghtlng
plant to have made a surplus for the
year of tt.ffil, with a total surplus of
IHHJ.S. The figures show an Increased
profit of -COOV over the profit of a year
ago for the lighting plant and a decrease
In profit of tHOO over the profit of a year
ago tn the water plant.
The city charges to the plants the
amounts raised for Interest on bonds,
etc.. charges as exact a depredation as
can be ascertained, and credits the plant
for hydrant service, street lighting, flush
ing sewers, water used in public build
ings, etc It still, however, does not take
credit for the water used in street
sprinkling. For fire hydrants the plant
is credited for 145 per hydrant, an aver
age low price charged by private com
panies in cities having no municipal plant.
For electric lights the sum of 6 per
month, ia credited to the plant, the moon
light schedule being observed, though In
the business section lights burn all night.
The present administration has had some
doubts as to the correctness of this sys
tem of crediting.
In his report to the mayor and council
the expert accountant says: "The idea
has been to show Just what the results
would have been if the plant was owned
by a private corporation, and If It was a
private corporation the city would un
doubtedly have to draw warrants, and In
all probability, tor greater amounts.
Take, for Instance, the fire hydrant
rental, which with you ia M5. In the city
of Omaha the private corporation
charges an average of tSL The cities of
Lincoln and Fremont charge $45. 'Sbrk
la the only place I know of where the
charge Is less than tto I believe the city
should continue the practice of paying
for all public service. The only debata
ble ground, tn my judgment, la the
amount to be charged."
PIERCE DEMOCRATS DIVIDED
Bab-. Laeas la Sanaa; as CaadJ

PIERCE, Neb., Sept. . Special.
Pierce has been the Mecca toward which
the democratic politicians of the Third
congressional district have been giving
their attention the last three days.
Thursday' sFrof. H. N. Preston ot Fre
mont and the private secretary of the
late Congressman Latta, arrived on the
morning train to put in soma licks for
Dan Stephana of Fremont, W. L. Rose
of Fullerton followed Preston closely In
an auto and soon was closeted with the
leading lights. A trip was then taken
to Plain view, where It was learned that
the friends of Fred H. Free were work
ing like beavers for that gentleman for the
oongTeaalonal nomination and that a
delegation from this county would be
asked for at the county convention. That
evening one of the leaders of the county
democracy was busy interviewing the
faithful here, but the subject discussed
was kept from the public knowledge.
The plot came to light, however, at the
county convention when announcement
waa made that Robert Liieaa. an exten
sive ranchman and stock raiser of Foster
precinct, waa a candidate for the con
gressional nomination before the demo
cratic convention called to meet at Nor
folk tomorrow. The Impression p ra
vel la generally that the candidacy of Mr.
Lucas waa sprung at this time by dem
ocratic leaders at Pierce who have little
love for Mr. Free and have shown their
feeling towards him In the past. The
plot evidently waa to discredit Mr. Free
in his home county by Injecting another
candidate and thus divide the county at
the congressional convention. After the
announcement of Mr. Lucas candidacy
the Instructions that the friends of Mr.
Free expected would be unanimously
passed went by the board and the manip
ulators of the scheme to give Mr. Free
the double cross took a half day off to
