Cause of the Fire
Fire Warden Morris, who has been In

building occupied by the Burgess.Oranden
company, 1511 Howard street, asserts that
from all Indications the fire started on
the first floor of the building, to the 'rear,
In an , office occupied by Walter W.
Sherwood, electrician. No supposition as
to Its origin can be given, cither by Mr.
Sherwood, the Burgess-Oranden people or
the fire warden, and the cause of the
damaging conflagration will In all prob
ability remain an unsolved mystery.
The portion of tho building occupied by
the Omaha Gas company was practically
unscathed by the fire, but was damaged
considerably by water. According to one
of the company's officials, the rooms will
not be occupied for at least bIx weeks, by

Storage company, whose wedding last
September to Miss Dorothy A. Gardner
of Chicago, known as ono of that city's
beautiful Klrls, was a notable social
event. According to excellent authority
attempts nt reconciliation have failed,
their former differences having been ac
centuated by Mr. King's Injunction suit
to prevent his mother-in-law, Mrs. Ievt
A. Gardner, from continuing ner visits
at his home, and tho beautiful residence
at 3202 Woolworth avenue, prepared by '
Mr. Ktng tor his bride, will not again bo

Gardner and her daughter Immediately

weeks after the birth of a baby son.
Mrs. Gardner's affidavit says that al

times in six months she came each time

that sho was moved In all her notions
only by anxiety to do tho best for her

with her relations as a wife,
Sho denies that sho Induced Mrs. Ktng

Howell's Half Truths and Whole Lies I
Tlio boss of tho water works is using aMIttlc of the taxpayer' money
to blow his own horn by post card purporting to tell what great things ho
Is doing. Tho purpose, of course, Is to ease up popular wrnth nt tho broken
promise of lower water rates by pretense thnt the extortionate charges aro
offset by other benefits. Tho exhibit, however, ts but An ingenious concoc
tion of half truths and whole lies.
"Tho only property tax paid by tho peonlo of Omaha on
account of tho water plant ts a hydrant tax, formerly levied
to pay a hydrant tax to tho Omaha water company."
This Is a pnlpublo perversion, for In addition to paying tho hydrant
rental tax tho people haro nlso becn saddled with 9100,000 of taxes formerly
paid by the water company, nnd which tho wntcr company would continue
to pay If It retained the plant.
"Tho last full year's taxes paid by tho Omaha Water
company was for 1911, nnd that year tho company paid tho
city of Omaha on account of occupation nnd all other taxes
This is a deliberate deception. The water company's taxes for Its last
year were in the neighborhood of $00,000. If tho water company were
still paying taxes on Its plant, this Is what It would have had to pay, com

Hayes, howevor. Is a good Judge of

the conclusion' that wooden boats would

steel boats would be sure to. And, as
the Alaska boats' are frequently caught in
heavy storms that drlvo them In all di

Alaska straits and bays are uncharted,

Accordingly, he gave Taylor his views
on the subject and Taylor took the advice
and booked passage on a woo'den vessel,
