(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Aug. 4. -(Special.) John J.
McAllister, representing Dakota county
In the last legtalntute was at tho state
houte this morning for the purpose of
attending a meeting of the state water
power commission which was created by
the last legislature, or rather by the
house to watch the water power business
and see that water waa not stolen from
the state which belonged to the people.
The board has been very slow In get
ting together and nothwtthstandlng Mr.
McAllister In a volco which nearly Jarred
the dome from the capltot building last
winter denounced the state board of ir
rigation for doing as they did In tryng
to make the water power of tho state
devedoped, they have stood Idly by while
certain parts of the state have suffered
for water during tho past few weeks,
If Mr McAllister was sincere In Ids de
nunciation of the methortt of tho board
he had no right to sit Idly In his office
at Dakota Ctly and see the corn suffer
for rain when according to the Idea ex
pressed by him during the session, the
legislature was all powerful and In creat
ing the new board of which he Is a
member thought it had solved the rain
Tho board created by the legislature
conslstes of McAllister, Representatives
Jackson of Nuckholls, Qustafson of
Saunders, Palmer of Clay and Dr, Geo.
E. Condra of the state university. The
board was created and no provision made
to pay them anything but expenses,
which, however Include miles ge, hotel
bills and other things.
The board organl2od by electing J. J.
McAllister chairman. No further offices
were filled aa but three members were

On Going Higher
CHICAGO, Aug. 4. Whether corn
would go above 70 cents a bushel was
settled today in a minute. Tho market
shot up to that level on the first trade
and soon was far beyond.
Drouth, already the most severe In
twenty years, promised to continue all
the present week, according to the gov
ernment forecast. As a result the volume
of buying today took on huge propor
tions. The opening was Ho to lHc higher
than Saturday night's close. September,
which started at 7O8704c, a gain of tttjlc,
rose to TlVic in almost a vertical lino.

EL PASO, Tex., Aug-. L Word was rt
tslved today of the departure Sunday of
.Ortega's rebel command of 700 men 'from
0ua4kup. The constitutionalists
tnu-ched southwest, apparently with the
Atentfon of reaching the Mexican Cen
tral railroad at Villa, Ahumid to cap
ture supply trains bound for Juarez.
It Is generally believed that Ortega's
movement means the abandonment of the
threatened rebel attack on Juarez.

The Rate-Reduction Franchise
Means Rate Regulation by the City
"Wo have called your attention to tho estimated
saving of upwards of $700,000 to gas users during
tho next 5Vy years if the rato reduction frnuchiso
ordinance is approved by tho voters August 19tli.
This is the saving which will result from an im
mediate reduction of 15 cents per thousand feet in
the price of gas.
This, with the same quality of manufactured gas
you now receive, which is not excelled in any other
The 5 year period is used because it is as far
as an estimate or calculation can be made.
Under tho rate-reduction franchise, tho price of
gas is to be fixed by tho mayor and city council by
contracts for short periods.
Tho mayor and a majority of the city council
havo announced that tho first contract period will
not bo longer than the remaining years of tho presont
franchise, which expires December 31,1918.
At the end of this period tho gas rato cannot bo
mado higher than $1.00.
It may bo reasonably anticipated that future gas
rates will be progressively lowor. Such is tho desiro
of tho gas company.
Therefore, no estimate can be made of the addi
tional saving to gas users after 1918, and during the
remaining 20 years of the proposed franchise.
Tho gas company believes that its success de
pends upon efficiency and progressive methods
that the cheaper it can produce, deliver and sell a
high quality of service, tho more stable, satisfactory
and prosperous will be its business.
No progressive public utilty concern expects large
profits. Tho most it can hope for is a moderate rato
of return, considerably less than would be regarded
as satisfactory in ordinary manufacturing, merchan
dising or commercial enterprises.
When tho first gas rate contract with the city
ends, tho question of what is a fair rate for gas in
Omaha must come up again and the company com
pelled to justify by figures and facts whatever rate
it then belioves compensatory.
If every citizen went into -such an investigation
thoroughly, it would take weeks and perhaps months
of his time. It is impossible for him to do so, and in
matters of this kind he is compelled to let tho men
ho has elected to office look after his interests, pro.
tecting himself by tho power of veto through tho ref
erendum and tho power of recall over the city
The proposed gas rate-reduction ordinance will
give the city power to regulate gas rates for the first
time in the history of Omaha.
If approved by tho people, it will settle pending
controversies and permit us to devote our best ener
gies to performing progressively our part of tho col.
lective work necessary in this community. ... . w j,
