AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Plan on Foot to Throw Q Street
Special Taxes on City.
HIGH OFFICIAL BACKS MOVE
Cltr Ineentor Leigh Declares lie
"Will rrcpnre Ordinance to Pro
hibit People Letting Chick

How tho taxes of South Omaha run up
and why. la the substance ot a little story
being told about the city Just at present
In connection with the alleged activities of
a high clly official to have the special
Improvement taxes beaten and thrown on
the city at large. A prom-nent uptown at
torney Is said to have been (consulted on
the matter.
As the story goes It Is said to affect Q
street. Tho packing houses are to bear
their share of tho burden without nny re
lief, It Is understood. They are willing to
pay for tlfb pavement, but the move Is
said to contemplate placing the burden of
the other property owners on tho city at
large.
It Is understood that the attorney In
question was asked as to the possibility
of throwing out tho Improvement taxes,
which means that through Borne techni
cality the abutting properly owners get
relieved of paying for tholr Improvements
and the burden falls on the city at large,
Including the little properly owners In tho
back streets where tho mud Is nice and
soft. This has been worked by a certain
class of men In South Omaha for years.
It Is understood that the attorney ad
mitted ttat ho could knock the tax In
question put, but expressed surprise that
the high official should want to do such
a thing. Tho official Is teported to have
remarked: "Well, I want to get rid of
that load as well as anyone else."
Keep Chickens itt Home,
Chickens In South Omaha will be re
strained of their liberty If City Prosecutor
E. It. Leigh has his way. City Prosecutor
Leigh says that tho police court Is encum
bered with neighbors complaining against
neighbors because of the depredations of
Madam Hen. Judge Callanan says his
hours of rest and philosophic musing are
disturbed by the tinkle of tho telephone
bell started Into action by Irate gardeners
who enter protests against the Invasion
of the closes by a flock of chickens.
City Prosecutor Leigh announced that
he would draw an ordinance making It a
misdemeanor for peoplo to allow their
chickens to run a largo In South Omaha.
Omaha is said to have such an ordinance
and as a result the officials and pollco re
port that there Is lacking the usual neigh
borhood rows.

ance to the South Omaha stock yards In

Enrmr Uiipleimnnt Nninpn,
VKUA CltUZ, June 6. -President Huerta
Is now In dally communication with Gen
eral Francisco Villa, according to a re
port brought here by a refugee, but the
character of their communication :s
somewhat unconventional.
General Villa, according to the report,
recently sent one of his telegraphsrs
within the federal lines. He tapped a
wire and eent to Huerta a message In
which Villa called his enemy unpleasant
names and urged him not to hasten his
departure from the capital, as Villa was
very anxious to see him before he left
Villa requested Huerta to wait, saylmr
he soon would be In the capital.
President Huerta, according to tho
story, appreciating the grim humor of
the situation, gave orders that any simi
lar messages should not bo withheld, but
dellvored o him immediately. Since this
order was Issued Villa, according to the
refugees, has not dfeappointed Huerta
one day. Though the wording of his
messages Is always different, each mes
sage Is said to be more vituperative than
tho other. The dally receipt ot these
meeages Is said to have become some
thing ot a Joke at tho national palace.
Tho refugee who related this story
said that Huerta's hand had be-n streng
thened by the receipt of ammunition from
the Yplmnga and Uavarla and that he
now laughs at the Idea ot resigning. The
retugne declared that the president wa j
far from being a bankrupt, saying that In
one bank alone ho had 12,OA),OC0 peo.
The refugee said the member of Huerta's
family were still In Mexico City.
Victor Huerta, one ot tho president a
ons, It was said, feared the advent of
tho Americana and their vengoanc for
nis lenaersnip oi uie moo urn uunsm j
the statuo of George Washington from I
its base during the recent disturbance

WASHINGTON, June 6.-John R Still-
man, American vice consul at fcaitiuo,
conferred today with Secretary Bryan
and John Llnd participated. While Mr.
Sllllman declined to talk extensively of
his experiences when ho was arrested
and threatened with death by HUerta
troops at Saltlllo, he confirmed previous
reports that tho federals compelled him
to open tho consular safe and took the
State department code and valuables. He
was confined In jail twenty-one days and
whllo at times the outlqok was very
threatening he never was taken before a .
firing squad, as was reported. He will ;

Propose Legislation
to Aid Unemployed
in Securing Work
WASHINGTON, Juno 6. National leg
islation to deal with the problem of un
employed labor was urged before the
houto labor committee today by a dele
gation ot sociological workers. Tho del
egation supported the Murdock bill for a
national employment asency and tha
MncDonald hill to create employment
agencies at postofflces throughout tho
country. It Is expected the committer
will report some legislation along this
line at this session, and will press It In
tho house next winter.
Dr. John B. Andrews of the American
Atsoclatlon for Labor Legislation, urged
early action on the pending bills. He
ia Id the federal government was tho only
agency which could deal with tho prob
lem In a broad, national way, bringing
tho mass of unemployed congregated lu
the cities, or In one section of the coun
try In touch with opportunities for em
ployment in country districts or In re
moved parts of the country.
Manuel F. Bchar, of the National Lib
eral Immigration league of New York
City, urged the publication of a dolly
federal labor bulletin, showing labor con
ditions and conditions of unemployment
In varloui sections of the country. He
favored some plan whereby unemployed
could be' transported td districts of sea
sonable employment, such as tho wheat 1
nnd corn belts, when labor was needed
thre.
Dr. Joeph Maypcr of the North Amer
ican league for Immigrants, said that
foreign Immigrants- formed but a small
portldn of tha unemployed. . J

MAHER COURTS TROUBLE
BY DARING SUFFRAGETTE
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Juno .-(Bpccla!.)-The first
Joint debate on woman suffrage of tho
campaign was pulled off last night In
front of the LlndeJl hotel In this city
when Charles Clancy, actliig us fncy
extraordinary and minister plenipoten
tiary for the suffragettes, who were pre
paring for 11 n automobile raid Into the
fastness of Lancastor county, Introduced
the leader of the suffragettes, a woman
from Kansas or somo other clime, to
Colonel John G. Maher, democratic candi
date for the nomination for governor,
Tho woman looked at the colonel a mo
ment and then asked lilm bluntly who
ho was.
Nothing daunted, the hero of many a
bloodless typewriter campaign, responded:
"I am John Maher, democratic candidate,
for governor of Nebraska."
"Dm, ah," responded tho woman.
This was too much for John and he re
sponded: "Lady, ynii would be In much
better business were you at home looking
after the welfare of your husband, It
you hae one, or of your boys and girls,
if you have them, Instead of ' running
around the country hunting votes for
women and neglecting your home duties."
"Ura, ah,-' again responded the woman
In that manner sa peculiar tn the female
sex when they wish to say something and
occasionally can't find the words.
"I signed the petition to submit the
suffrage proposition to the people of tho
state," responded the undaunted candi
date, "because I wished the voters of the
state to have a chance to settle the ques
tion, which they will do by snowing the
proposition under by moro than - 00,000
votes."
'Urn, nh," again responded the woman
In her peculiarly eloquent way.
"Any time that you would like to dis
cuss the question with me In the Tegular
way," responded Colonel Maher, -we will
hire a hall and I would be pleased to dis
cuss the matter with you."
Just then Admiral Clancy tooted his
horn as a signal to start and the dlsaus
slon was over.
