Health Department Taking Precau
tion to Prevent Spread of the
Disease and Sanitary Meaa-
HAVANNA, July 7.-The existence of
bubonic plague in Havana has beer,
definitely determined. A special board of
physicians has pronounced the case at
Las Animas hospital true bubonic. The
patient Is Mendenez Guerra, a Spaniard
who was employed on a sewer-laylng coa
tract. He was taken ill July Z at his
lodgings, !lose to the palace. A marked
fever developed. The man was removed
to hospital No. 1, where the symptoms
were at once believed to indicate bubonic.
He was transferred to Las Animas hos
pital, where the disease was fully identi
fied. Guerra is said to be dying and
three other patients are reported dead
at the same hospital with marked symp
toms of the plague. '
The secretary of sanitation ordered im
mediate fumigation of the infected house,
as well as all others in that vicinity, in
cluding the palace. President Gome and
and his family left this morning for the
country home at Calabasar.
Much anxiety is felt throughout the
city, but the sanitary authorities express
fullest confidence that the splendidly or
ganized health, department will keep the
disease under control. For the present
fumijatlon .will be applied only to sus
pected houses, which for the most part
are situated along the water front down
town, but if additional cases are dis
covered fumigation will be ordered for
the wide city.
At present the question of isolating
Havana from the Interior is not being
considered. The rat killing corps of the
health department has been largely rein
forced. All street cars, omnibuses and
ferry boats have been ordered to be
washed with disinfecting fluids. r

Company Says ' tfo
INDPEi t aSTEM TO ME
Nebraska Does Not Expect to Oper

Thirty Cents on the Dollar.
MANY ORDERS FOR REMOVAL
Say Low Ratea Forced Independent
to Do Bnalneaa at a Lose
Bell Company to Sell
."The Independent telephone exchange
won't last thirty days in Omaha," said
President C. E. Tost of the Nebraska
Telephone company yesterday after the
sale of the Independent system to the
Nebraska company had been confirmed
by Judge Munger of the federal court.
Mr. Yost said the Nebraska company
did not expect to operate the Independent
system to any great extent when it pur
chased It but much of the property of
the Independent will be of value to the
Bell company. He said there are great
quantities of wires and cables, both above
and under ground, as well as poles and
other equipment necessary to the opera
tion of a telephone system that are of
value to the Nebraska company.
"While we do not need it just at pres
ent," said Mr. Yost, . "we are going to
need It in the near future If Omaha keeps
on growing and expanding as It has."
Mr. Yost said the company eventually
will sell the buildings, of which there axe
four, two in Omaha, one in Florence and
one In South Omaha.
Many Phones Ordered Ont.
In the office of the Independent com
pany there are at present over 1,000 orders
for the removal of telephones, according
to Mr. Yost. He says he cannot say how
many subscribers there are on the system
in Omaha and the suburbs, but he be
lieves all soon will turn in orders for
removal of the telephones. , He declares
that no company could operate a system
on a paying basis on such rates as those
of the Independent in Omaha. The rates
were $2 per month for business and SI per
month for residence telephones.
It Is the opinion of Mr. Yost that, Judg
ing from the price the Independent
brought at the sale, the stockholders will
not receive more than 25 to 30 cents on
the dollar. The receiver's certificates, of
which there are $300,000 worth, are to be
paid for at par with interest This prob
ably will be done some time during this
Lysie L Abbott, receiver, yesterday

"I suppose if another group of pro
moters should come tomorrow with a
proposition for a new telephone system
in the city the people would vote for it.
Yost in his office. "The
Promoters of the Independent proposition
came from California and no one knew
much about them. They sold a quantity
of bonds and establishes tne plant The
plant has gone Into the hands of a re
celver and is sold and the people are no
better off than they were before they
had the two systems. -' As to rates of the
Nebraska company, there is no increase
contemplated unless they should keep on
taxing us so highly that we will have to
raise the rates in order to survive. This
system, of which I am president Is
operating under lower rates than almost
any similar system I know of In the coun
try. In Denver, for example, they charge
about 25 per cent more than in Omaha.1
The development of the Bell system In
Omaha, the president said, is among the
very best In the country, the company
having between 27,000 and 28,000 telephones
in Omaha, where the population Is 124,000.
