Inatead of doing ao. 1 gave thelof the River and Harbora association, hotel porter K cc-nta and told him to buy I me a bottle of Chamherlaln'a Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, and In oonnectlon with a proposal that a charter commi salon be selected to draw tin another home rule charter. City At torney Rlne offers the following: Informa- I . tlon: i "Our .'onstltutlon provldee that when a j home) rule charter has been adopted It I ahall supersede the existing charter and jail amendments. Thla would deprive ua i of any right now posaesned under exist ing charters to regulate the service of corporations. There Is no crying need of a new charter In any event. i "I see that some of the people who are j apparently disgruntled with the result of ', the late election are now loudly olamor- Ing for a charter convention. I wonder if these people know that they are play ing Into the bands of the corporations, or, perhaps, some of them Ao know and are 'using the same tacttca that were uaed In the last city campaign. If their designs should be successful the city might aa well abandon Its fight for seven fares for a quarter with tbe atreet rail way company. "If a new charter should be adopted, thla right to regulate the atreet railway j company would be rfone and we would have to look to the state railway oom . minion entirely for relief." i Mr. Rine further contends that several I supreme courts have held that a city In no event under a home-rule charter can regulate the rates of public utllltlea made under a constitutional provision, such as ours, or grant to Itself such right. ti Li) ti U A New Shipment of Crepe de Chine Undergarments Ju whitp and the most delicate shades of flesh jut received.

An Omaha Lady. Most every one has a dread of the ordinary shampoo; of tbe time consumed and labor involved; of the stiff, arbitrary condition of the hair afterward; of the un pleasant feeling of soap left in the balr; the fear of hurting the hair or of taking cold; the difficulty of ob taining soft water, etc. All of these troubles are overcome by use of Lee'a Liquid Shampoo. A few ounces of soft water is best for the "lather-up" but even that is not essential. A man can take a shampoo while taking a bath and quicker than he can shave. A woman ran shampoo in five minutes, hair dry in ftfteen to thirty. The hair goes rieht back to its old training. There Is no soap, grease. dirt, or dandruff left behind. There is no unpleasant after-effect or odor. No danger of hurting the hair or of taking cold. 3 sties, 4 ox. 25 eta. 12 oz. 50 eta. 32 oz. $1.01 At druggists or delivered prepsid. Booklet free. GEO.
