Light Company to
Give Free Service
To the Sick Poor
What promises to win the heartfelt
gratitude of those who are benefited
thereby is the offer of the Omaha
Electric Light and Power company,
through its president, General
George H. Harries, to install electric
fan service during the summer for
those afflicted with illness, who are
financially unable to secure this serv
ice. Application for the fan service
is to be made by attending physicians.
Physicians have been notified that
applications by them will result in the
installation of temporary wiring and
a fan with a supply of operating cur
rentall without charge. The only
requirement is that houses so served
shall be on streets where there are
"It is a privilege to aid in making
conditions more nearly bearable for
those with whom we all sympathize,"
said General Harries.
The same offer was made last year
through the physicians, but oh ac
count of the cool summer few calls
for the service were made. Local
physicians are loud in their praise of
the company's offer.
Dog Lies Down in
Front of Gas Bike
And Throws Rider
"First, I'm pinched for speeding,
and then I'm run over by a joy-galloping
bulldog," quoth J. F. Kind, 2200
Farr.am street, as he nursed two
badly skinned knees, a scraped face
and other lacerated and contused por
tions of his anatomy.
Kind owns a motorcycle and several
days ago he was thwarted for stretch
ing .the speed regulations. Saturday
morning while traveling on the same
vehicle, at Twenty-fifth and Pratt
streets, a bulldog with a sad, stern
countenance swooped down upon -him
and with suicidal intent lied down
beneath the front wheel of the mo
torbike. The dog failed in his designs, but
almost murdered Kind, who was pre
cipitated on a head-first slide, that
Ty Cobb never equalled. Besides
sustaining wounds, a shredded suit of
clothes and injured feelings, the mo
torbike was considerably damaged.

IS NOT A HUGE SUCCESS
A German-Irish alliance that is not
ery harmonious is brought to light
by the divorce petition of Emma ho
ley, who sues Pat for divorce.
She says she is of German extrac

compatibility of temperament exists,
especially when Pat shows a bit of
temper and throws the household fur

Stirring Days of Other Years
GO TO MOBILIZATION CAMP
OMAHA TROOPS ARE THE
FIRST TO REACH CAMP
Mobilization Camp, Lincoln,
Neb., June 23. (Special Tele
gram.) The first battalion, Fourth
regiment, Major Elsasser com
manding, arrived in Lincoln at 11
o'clock this forenoon and marched
to the camp. They were delayed
at the main entrance. They were
the first company to reach the
camp from outside Lincoln today
and made a good appearance as
they marched up the street.
WILL WILSON ASK
Secretary Baker Refuses to Say if
Possibility of Call Discussed.
HE WON'T TALK ABOUT THAT
"Goodbye, Johnnie! Be a good boy
and do your duty and write, and
don't expose yourself needlessly!
A gray-haired mother lingered in
the embrace of her khaki-clad, stal
wart young son as he stood with one
foot on the step of the special train
that was taking him to the concen
tration camp at Lincoln.
Then he jumped swiftly into the
coach, to hide his' moist eyes, only to
reappear a moment later in a win
dow and wave his hand and shout
"goodbye" to personages of lesser
importance. The mother, however,
openly dabbed her 'kerchief to her
eyes and walked slowly away to
make room for other mothers who
were crowding behind her to say al
most exactly the same words to their
sons and kiss them in almost exactly
the same way.
Crowd at Railroad Station.
Mothers and sweethearts and wives
and fathers and brothers and sisters
and friends, numbering close to 3,000,
jammed the Burlington station plat
form when the four companies of the
Nebraska National Guard entrained.
Not since the stirring days of 1898
has Omaha seen such a demonstra
tion. As each comoanv marched to the
depot from the armory at Twentieth
and Harney they were greeted by
yells and cheers of encouragement on
every hand. At the depot an ovation
awaited them. .
The crowds commenced Catherine
early at the depot and at the armory,
and it was with difficulty that the spi
ders coma get tneir last arrange
ments made. Once at the depot, it
was evenvtiarder to get aboard the
train. When the time for saying the
lost "goodbye came some of the
younger recruits, although keeping a
stiff upper lip, could not hide the fact
that there was a touch of foreshad
owing grimness in the business of
"going to war."
"Goodbyes" on Every Hand.
On every hand the saying of "good
byes" was the chief occupation.
"I'll come back to you, Mary., Kiss
baby for me I"
"Goodbye I God bless you I"
"Goodbye I Goodbye I"
"Goodbye 1" '
The train pulled out.
With heavy sighs the big crowd
turned- and walked slowly to the
street. Then it turned and watched
the train disappear around a curve,
and the mothers and fathers and
wives and sisters sighed again and
wiped away the tears that glistened
in their eyes.
JUDGE SUSTAINS DEMURRER
FILED BY JUSTICE HASCALL
Judge Leslie yesterday handed
down a decision in which he sustained
the demurrer filed by Justice of Peace
Hascall. his ruling being that Heroni-
mus Eisele bad no ground for action.
The case was brought by bisele to
have Judge Hascall ousted, alleging
malfeasance in office and improper
administration of the affairs of his
office. Judge Leslie ruled that there
were no grounds tor sucii a suit.
There are colonies in the north of
Russia, bevond the Arctic circle.
which have not yet heard of the Russo-Japanese
war, and certainly yhave
no knowledge of the present war.
Washington, June 23. Congress
was called upon today to do its share
toward facilitating the organization of
the National Guard army rapidly pre
i paring for service. A resolution was
introduced by Chairman Hay, of the
j house military committee) to be called
up for action tomorrow, authorizing
the president to draft into the federal
service all members of the guard who
take the new enlistment oath, and to
hold them for the duration of the
emergency for which they are called
out. The words "duration of the war"
were altered after a conference be
tween Secretary Baker and Mr. Hay.
The resolution provided that incom
plete units of the guard may be con
solidated and mustered in.
Plan of Hay.
Chairman Hay also plans to intro
duce a measure creating a fund of
$500,000, to be used for the relief of
indigent families of National Guards
men called into active service. A
maximum of $50 a month for any one
family would be authorized.
Secretary Baker was in conference
during the day with President Wilson.
It was reported that the possibility of
calling out volunteers in addition to
the National Guard, should war with
Mexico come, was discussed. Mr.
Baker was asked later if this subject
was under consideration.
"I believe I will not discuss that,"
Army officers pointed out that au
thorization to call volunteers would
permit the application of the system
used during the Spanish-American
war to recruit regular regiments up to
Enlistment For War.
Enlistment was accepted for the
term of the war, making it possible for
a citizen to volunteer for service with
the regulars without binding himself
for the long term of regular army en
listments. With the eleven additional
skeleton regiments to be created on
the border July 1, it is deemed vital
that some method of filling of their
ranks as well as those of the old orga
nizations, be provided, if war is im
pending. CONVENTION OF STATE
