HARRIMAN ROAD TO BORE
HOLE IN SIERRA NEVADAS
The most expensive piece of work that
has ever been undertaken by the Harrl
man system of roads is about to be
authorized and it is expected that work
will begin early next spring. It consists
of boring a hole through the base of the
Sierra Nevada mountains between Blue
! Canyon and Truckee, Cal. '
The tunnel that the Harriman people
ire about to, construct will be the long
t. in the "world, approximately 30,000
Teet, and the estimated cost will be 110,
CO.O00. . .' ' .
" The building of the tunnel through' the
Sierras will not be any great distance
iaver, but the saving will come' about' by
reason of the climb that will be elimin
ated. At this time there Is a climb of
over 1,000 feet on each side of the moun
tains and it is so steep that it is neces
iary. to have double headers on every
;raln. -Even then trains move slowly and
i much time is lost. It will be a water
rade through the tunnels and all trains
islng It will be electrified, thus doing
iway with smoke and coal gas from en

Refusal of City Prosecutor Anheuser
to file a complaint against Charles
Stiller, a saloon keeper at' 434 South
Thirteenth street, arrested Saturday
night in a raid, has resulted In a dis
agreement between Anheuser and Police
Magistrate Foster, which may be aired
in district court
Although no complaint was filed, the
case against Stiller was entered upon the
police court docket and continued until
September 25. On order of Mayor Dahl
man the bonds of the Inmates and Stiller,
w-i-rtinif to fMO, were returned.
Anheuser .maintains there was not
enough evidence in the case to warrant
him to file a complaint He says It was
...i.tu . netting over Stlllers
place of business and that lunch ' and
refreshments were served.; Anheuser also
accuses Judge Foster of usurping his
powers and insists that a case cannot be
tried in police court unless he files a
Judge Foster replied to Anheuser by
gi1ng him a letter setting forth the
duty of the prosecuting attorney and the
police judge. Anheuser in return1 replied
with a letter stating his position and
making charges against Judge Foster.
Corporation Counsel Baker advised Tom
O'Connor, clerk of the police court, to
return all forfeited bonds where no com
plaint was filed against the defendants.
Judge Fosterln a written communication
to O'Connor- ordered him not to return
the bonds. ;
On the outcome of the Stiller case will
depend the settlement of the police court
wrangle, which has been brewing for
some time. '

City Commissioner McGovern of the de

"there is no honor attached to a gentle
man on the city commission who at
tempts to override the authority of the
head of any other department."
Commissioner Hummel had asked for
an appropriation to go to Atlantic City
to attend a meeting of the American
Road congress. George W. Craig, city
engineer, was also made a delegate In
a resolution Introduced In the city coiuicil
by C. H. Withnell, commissioner of fire
protection and water supply.
McGovern had told the council he
couldn't spare Craig, didn't have money
and opposed sending delegates to a lot
of meetings when all the good derived
was to the health of the delegates.
Why McGovern Objects.
."We haven't any money," he said, "and
we need this $400. We have been send

and all they bring back Is a report which
we cannot follow because we haven't

at this congress he thought Omaha ought
to be represented. '
Mayor Dahlman had to pound the table
for order when the discussion waxed bit
ter and personalities replaced arguments.
Mr. Withnell consented to withdraw
his resolution and Hummel says he will
introduce another delegating himself to
Frequent clashes occurred In the city
council in the last few weeks over the
assumption of authority by one com
missioner to dictate to another what shull
be done in the latter's department.
Commissioner Butler says this is In
violation of the spirit of the commission
law and stood by McGovern in demand
ing the withdrawal of Wlthnell's resolution.

Wife's Actions Make
After having forgiven his wife on
several occasions for alleged unwomanly
actions, Omer Phillips, a blacksmith liv
ing In Beatrice, followed her to Omaha
Sunday afternoon when she ran away
from him and her 6-year-old son again,
and was arrested upon the woman's com
plaint, as a suspicious character. He was
lodged In jail, but in some manner a
small vial of carbolic acid was overlooked
by the prison officials when he was
searched. Last night he attempted to
commit suicide by drinking It.
Police Matron Gibbons was talking to
him at the time and her presence of mind
and ability to hold his attention while the
roison was taken from him saved his
life.. Phillips said that If he cannot
effect a reconciliation with his wife he
does not care to live. His case will be
Investigated today by the police. Mrs
Phillips Is living at 3816 Chicago street
now and the child is being cared for at

ATLANTIC FLEET IS TO
VISIT THE PANAMA CANAL
George Von L. Meyer, secretary of the
navy, has planned the .winter cruise of
the Atlantio fleet to Include a trip to
Colon, Panama, In order that the crews
of the vessels of the fleet may have an
opportunity of inspecting the rreatest
construction of modern times.
A trip to the big canal and across the
Isthmus to the Pacific ocean during the
period of construction will be of such
great interest to the enlisted force of the
navy that Secretary Meyer has deter
mined to reserve the necessary time from
the winter maneuvers In the Caribbean
to enable the sailormen to make this trip
before the work has advanced to com
It Is probable that special trains will
be provided by the authorities of-the isth
mus to transport the men to all points
of Interest along the route of the canal.

City Attorney Rlne is looking up the

department to arrest peddlers who cry
their wares In loud and strident voice Is
very unfair. ,
He asks the legal department for an
opinion. Mr. Rlne fays if there is an
ordinance against the thing Rider's po
sition Is clear and he has full power and
"There Is some doubt as to whether he
can do it unless these men are a publlo
nuisance," says the city attorney.

Peddlers affirm that since the sudden
death of the weights and measures ordi
nance they have been worried to death.
Butler Is championing their cause before
the city council.
An organization of grocers circulated
petitions to bring that weight ordinance
to a referendum vote, but the petitions
have never been filed and as the fifteen
days since the passage of the ordinance
have elapsed a referendum cannot now
