persuading the highway officials to place
Omaha on the route.
The new Jefferson highway will b a

cities along the Missouri river to send
delegates to New Orleans for this meet
ing to make a showing in favor of run

Electric Lifht Rate Subject Upon

HOWELL WITH BLACKBOARD
"A fair rate of return for public
service capital," was a subject that
sounder! Innocent enough. The spe
cial electric light committee of the
Commercial club Invited a half doien
organiiatlons of the city to meet
them at the club rooms last night and
give them suggestions on the above
Innocent enough was the subject.
But H. Beecher Howell was there.
Naturally the discussion gyrated
around until it became largely an ex
aggerated exposition by Mr. Howell
himself as to how the water works
plant is being run and what savings
it bas made the people.
This occurred In spite of the fact that
Chairman J. A. Sunderland of the com
mittee announced that the committee

pardoned If he called any one down who

No sooner had this announcement of
the chairman settled into the minds of
the audience of fifty or more ihn Mr
Howell hung a blackboard on the wall
and showed his figures on the water
plant's cost of operation, depreciation
iuna, questionable accounts fund ninir.
Ing fund, and Interest charges. Nor did
the chairman call him down-not once.
Ho even asked questions himself, and
encouraged others to ask questions. Just
ss though the fifty busy business' men
had come out In the cold to discuss the
water plant Instead of the electric light
Even at that, the chart Mr. Howell had
prepared with his own hands contained
an error in addition of $301,000. His at
tention was called to this by Frank H.
Myers of the committee. Mr. Howell cor
rected It, and later explained that the
total was correct, but in copying the fig
ures from his brief he had neglected to
Insert one of the items which would have
made the balance.

commissioner whether in determining
iai.es ana rear returns, a private corpora
should not be allowed to build up as
large a depreciation fund as the Metro
politan Water District had done, the
water commissioner was not definite and
clear In his reply.
Jndae Roemer Talks,
General George H. Harries, president of
the Omaha Electric Light and Pow.r
company, was present, but did not speak.
e introduced In his plaoe Judge John H.
Rocmer of Wisconsin, formerly chairman
of the publlo utilities commission of that
state. Judge Roemer pointed out that
each utility has a hasard peculiar to
Itself, and that these various haiards in
various lines have much to do with de
termining what should be a fair return
ag a reward for the Investment of capital
In such utility. "Where a utility Is con
stantly under attack," he said, "capital
Is also slow to Invest. Potential compe
tition from another proposed plant la
another factor that enters in. In short,
what return will capital invest money
upon? Is the real question. When you
have found that, you have found what
constitutes a reasonable return."
Corporation Counsel W. C. Lambert
made a general talk on corporation rate
controversies, and said that In his per
sonal opinion, per cent would be a fair
rate for the electric light company in
Mayor Dahlman, and Commissioners
Hummel and Jardine were present, but
said they merely oame for Information
and would not speak.
It was after this that Mr. Howell took
the floor and began to unfold his figures
on the water plant. Mr. Howell held that
the way to appraise a plant for rate
making purposes Is to determine what It
Is worth now for the purpose for which
It Is constructed, while Mr. Lambert held
that the method of determining the cost
of each part of a plant will stand the

In order to understand a foreign

TODAY'S BEAUTY HINTS
To whiten and beautify the complexion
permanently we have found no better
preparation than a lotion mad by dis
solving four ounces of spurmax in a half
pint of hat water, then adding two tea
spoonfuls glycerin. This removes any
pimples, shiny, muddy or sallow appear
ance, and wHl make anyone's akin clear,
smooth and velvety. It dies not show or
rub eff like powder; In fact, it seems a
part of the skin; and for removing tan
and freckles Is unequsled.
It is necessary to shampoo more fra
quntly in the warmer weather because
of excessive dust and the fact that the
head perspires more and Is usually more
exposed to the weather. The easiest to
use and quickest drying shampoo that
we can recommend to our readers can
be prepared very cheaply by dissolving
a teaspoonful of eanthrox, obtained from
your druggist. In a cup of hot water. This
rubbed into the scalp creates a thick
lather, soothing and cooling in Its action,
as well as very beneficial to scalp and
hair. After rinsing, the scalp is fresh
and clesn, while the hair dries quickly
and evenly, developing a bright luster
and a soft flufflneas that makes It seem
very heavy. Advertisement.
