M'VANN ON SOUTHERN CASE
Traffic Bureau Manager Will Likely
Be Kept Busy Several Weeks.
WILL TAKE UP THE COAL RATES
Upon llln Iletnrn to Oninlm Com
mercial Club Worker Will Seek
to Stop Higher Tariffs on
Anthracite from Ilnst.
It Is likely that B. J. McVann, manager
of the traffic bureau of the Omaha Com
mercial club, will not return to Omatia
until the middle of June. For the last
few weeks he has been In tho south fight
ing an Important coal rate case for i
southern mining company that retained
him on account of his thorough under
standing of rate complications, and his
wide experience In fighting for reduced
freight rates before the Interstate Com
merce commission and tho state railway
As soon as tho coal case can possibly
be closed, he will have to rush to St.
Louis, unless there should be a post
ponement of the southern lumber rate
case that Is to come before the Inter
state Commerce commission at St. Louis
June 1, Mr. McVann Is to conduct the
case there for tho various lumber com
panies and manufacturles of Kansas,
Missouri, Nebraska and the northwest.
all of which territory Is seeking to pre
vent the new increased schedule of freight
rates from going into operation as the
railroads have announced It. This case
will probably hold the attention of Mr
MoVann and the others engaged In the
fight for a few weeks, at least. No less
than a dozen Omaha manufacturers and
lumber dealers are to go to St. Louis to
testify In the case.
Want, nnte naliied.
Now that the Interstate Commerce
commission has complied with the re
quest of the Omahi Commercial club in
suspending the new Increased freight
rate on Pennsylvania hard coal to west
ern po'nts, it Is likely that Mr. MoVann
will find this case waiting for him '.hi
moment ho arrives In Omaha, whenever
that may be. The proposed increase was
of 25 cents per ton -on all hard coal to
the western territory. The Commercial
club telegraphed the Interstate Com
merce commission a week ago protest
ing against allowing the new tariff to
go Into operation, alleging It was exces
sive and worked an Injustice and a hard
ship on the consumers of the whole west.
It will be the task of McVann to make
up the case and to lead the fight when
the date for the hearing on this matter
shall be finally set.
Will the local bar association "in
vestieate" the charges of attempted
subornation of perjury made by Ed
gar Howard, which, if true, should
start disbarment proceedings against
The charges are quite specific
enough to facilitate cheoking them
up. Judge Howard's informant was
asked to commit perjury by lawyers
representing an Omaha saloon
keeper arrested a few weeks ago for
selling liquor at 10 o'clock at night.
Police court records must show
names, dates and hours of all such
arrests and disposition of this case.
With the particular case once lo
cated it should not be hard to ascer
tain the lawyers in it.
Here is another chance for the bar
investigators to show how far they
are on the square; whether they
really want to go after crooked
lawyers or merely after laymen who
expose the crookedness.

keep him because of his propensity s
raise the neighborhood In the wee small
hours by attempting to imitate Enrico
Caruso singing "Carmen." So Al Dresher
loaned the obstreperous animal to Pro
prietor Fhllbln of the Schlltz hotel.
Phllbln took the musically lnclino.1
beast to his home and fixed up a cart
so his children could take a ride. Tha
kids took the donkey out for an evening
airing and immediately every boy and
girl In the vicinity followed around the
mule. The Itinerary Included a trip oy
the home of Clarke Powell. By this time
the squad of children surrounding tt.e
donkey 'jad become so large as to in
spire him to unburden himself of some
bottled up harmony. Powell heard tha
sweet tones and, always with an eyo to
business, chortled with glee.
"It's a new auto hqrn," chirped Powell
to his wife. "Here's where I find out its
make and slip one over on my compota."
Powell rushed out of the house with
eager eyes out. ' Alas, Just as he rearlnfJ
the door another blast of the "auto horn"
filled the air and Powell saw Mr, Donkey
with his head high in the air expelling
the melody which caused his excitement.

As the board members took their places
at tho table it was evident that some
thing was about to happen. Four spoon,
two knives and three folks were ranged
