LINCOLN, Nov. 25.-(Speclal.)-I.bor
Commissioner Pool returned from Broken
Bow this morning, where, he conducted
a hearing on complaint of -parties that
the telephone company at that place was
working Its girls overtime. In conflict with
the female labor law. He discovered
when he got there that the company was
not ready and the hearing waa postponed
until next Monday. However, the com
pany haa put the new law In force pend
Ing the hearing.
About the same condition exists at
i Tecumseh. where a similar complaint had
been made. The company has asked for
a stay of thirty days In tho matter, but
has not put tho new law In force pending
the hearing. Commissioner Pool Is of
the opinion that if they want a contin
uance they should do as tho Broken Bow
company has done, and put the law Into
effect pending tho hearing.
Commissioner Pool complains of the
J large nmounfbf complaints he Is recelv
I Ing against nonenforcement of the labor
j laws of trjls state, which come to the
'I Ma handicaps ve preatly In the en
forcement of the law," said Mr. Pool to
day. "We hayo no way of knowing
where the complaint conies- from and
therefore do not know who to go to to
get the Information needed. If those who
make complaint would sign their names
wo "would protect them in the matter, but
we must know who to go to to get tho
Information. So many employes are afraid
that they will lose their Jobs that they
will not sign their names. To these we
say, sign your names to the letters you
send. They will remain a secret, and no
harm will como to yau through the sign
ing of the letters."

LINCOLN, Nov. 2S.-(Spcclal.)-The
warlike conditions between the atatc In-
j suranee department, the refusal of the
adjutant general's department to obey
the order of tho state board to move to

and a son of Insurance Commissioner
L. Q. Brian, walked tnto the prlvotu of
fice of Auditor W. II. Ilowa.-d and threat
ened to "knock hi block off, ' or words
to that effect.
Thero has been considerable feeling
against the state auditor by young Dilan
ever since the auditor removed his father
as insurance depuy. Yesterday he was
sent over to tho auditor's office to look
up somo records and Auditor Howard
sent Deputy Mbnor Into the vault, where
Brian had gone alone, to aralst him In
flndlnir what h wmntrtl. ThU .in-in.-il

It Is sad tlhat he told the tiinM.r Dm
If he wanted -anything In the. auditor's'
vault he would go and get It and If the
auditor objected he would slap his face.
Mr. Qeorge and Mr. Howard both rcgr"t
tho occurrence, as the offices have al

''I don't think Mr. Brian would Inten
tionally do anything In the vault that he
ought not to do," said Auditor Howard,
"but I feel that as long as the .records
are In my charge that It would bo un
businesslike to let anybody go In there
alone and tnke what he wanted and look

CHICAGO. Nov. .-An "Immense sum"
in potsiblc tetephono profits has been lot
to the telephone companies of this coun
try by "destructive competition" between
Independent systems and tho American
Telephone and Telegraph company. Tho
public has profited by tho warfare be
tween tho Independents and the Hell
astem and It was to put an end to this
situation that a JW0,00o,C00 morgor of
telephone companies was proposed by the
American company, backed by the Mor
gan financial power.
This w.as the Mibstance of testimony
hero today of Ernest U. Fisher, secretary
of the Cltliens' Telephone company of
drand Ilaplds, Mich., at tho hearing In
the government anti-trust suit against
the American company. Mr. Fisher said
tho merger proposition was put Into words
by Theodore N. Vail, president of lllo
American company, and that H. P.
Davidson ot the firm of J, P. Morgan &
Co., told the sixty or seventy Independent
telephone men present that the "house
of Morgan" wns prepared to guaranten
tho, financing ot any proposition made by
the American company. This took place
at the meeting here, December 10, 1910. to
which tho member of the Independent
telephone association then In convention
were summoned by a message thnt Vail
was In the, city and desirous ot meeting
them to talk merger.
Mr. Fisher said that he had opposed
the merger proposition as "Improper"
and financially bad. Telephone rates rlso
to unjustified proportion as noon as
competition Is eliminated, he said. After
the establishment ot competition In Grand
Ilaplds, he said, telephone rates were
placed at J3S yearly, d hato which en
abled a subscriber to have both systems
for 172 yearly. In Springfield, Mass., Mr.
Fisher stated, where tho Hell system haa
no competition, tho rate Is $72 a yrnr for
one telephone, nnd In Albany, N. Y., it Is
W6 a year for one telephone.
The Citizens' company, according to
Mr. Fisher, Is another Independent which
Is on Its feet and thriving under Bell

WAHI IINGTON, Nov. 55.fnder the

heavy losses In their earnings, according
to Representative David J. Lewis, co
author of the parcel "post low. In making

Lewis prophesied that within tho near
future tne Postofflce department would
virtually have a monopoly of the trans
portation of small parcels, nnd that
eventualy the government might take
ever the express corporations In thelr
Mr. Lewis' figures purported to show
that the profits of .the live. leading ex-,
press companies, which control S7 per

steadily since 1911. During tho twelve
months ot 19U-1!!2 these were represented
to be. In, round figures, Jo,77Z,000, and In

to J$,;M,000. Last June, when the "parcel

petition, express profits were wiped out,
and In the one month a loss of $130,000,
according to Mr, Lewis, was sustained

of last winter (with the exces
