Mayor Dahlman. and Commissioner
Butler, at a meeting of the city coun
cil crossed swords in the most acrid
exchange of opinions and personali
ties heard in the council chamber
since the adoption of the commission
form of city government
The chief bone of contention was
the street railway's extension on
Twenty-fourth street, Kansas avenue
to Ida street; whether this extension
would affect the city's case in an ef
fort to determine franchise rights.
"I am here to represent the peo
ple," quoth the mayor, doffing his
"J also represent the people," re
joined Mr. Butler.
And the Fight Was On.
Commissioner Hummel brought in
a large electric fan and turned it loose
upon the combatants.
"My vote is as big as yours, was
n.vt wrhal nrnirtitf Iiurlprl hv
"It is no bigger than mine," re
joined Mayor Jim.
On June 22 the council adopted a
Counsel Lambert, granting to the1
street railway right to make the ex
tension reterred to ana containing
such provisions as in Mr. Lambert's
opinion would protect the city in a
pending effort to determine the legal
status ot tne irancnise oi ine iracuon
comoanv. On July 6, another reso
lution, .drawn by Second Assistant
City Attorney Te Poel and offered
by Commissioner Withnell, was
adopted by the council and the Lam
bert resolution rescinded?
Butler Wins a Heat
Mr. Butler explained that he be
lieved the second resolution was
drawn by the corporation counsel,
but uoon beintt advised by Mr. Lam
bert that s the Te-Poel Mesolntion
would not safeguard the city m its
rights, Butler moved that the Te Poel
resolution be- reconsidered and re
ferred to the legal department He
won out on that contention, being
supported by all except Mayor Dahl
man and Commissioner Withnell.
Then ensued the proposition of
whether the council should or should
not abide by the advice of its corpora
tion counsel in matters of franchises.
"If our corporation counsel cannot
draw a resolution upon which we may
stand, then it is time to polish the
iffice. There seems to be some differ
ences up in the legal department,"
said Mr. Butler.
WBJW4 u VV-J.M..
"This far-fetched business is noth
ing but bunk. I don't care what these
attorneys and bunkaneers say about
it We are here to use our best
judgment for the people. These peo
ple need this extension and you can't
tell me that the extension will inter

franchise rights of the company when
we get to that matter. I have had
Mr. Lambert working for six months
on this street car franchise matter and
he is not quite ready to report yet
One member of our legal department
says this resolution will not jeopard
ize the rights of the people," was the
next speech by the mayor. .
Mr. Butler then wanted the street
car company notified of the action of
the council and ordered to stop work
on the extension. The notification
will be made, but the work will not
be stopped, this action being the ad
vice of City Attorney Rine.
The difference between the Lam
bert and Te Poel street railway reso
lutions is this: The former recog
nizes that there is some question at
this time regarding the company's
franchise rights; the latter hints at a

Matrimonial Tangles of J. R,
Williams Take a New Turn
One Wife Wants Decree.
MAY VOID OTHER MARRIAGE
The matrimonial j tangles of J. R.
Williams, which have been in district
court, almost constantly for more than
a year, assumed a new phase in a
hearing in Judge Sear's court yester
day. In this case one wife, Mrs. Jean
ette Williams, is asking for a decree
of separation. Matters are compli
cated by the fact that Williams is
now married to another bride, snd
that should the decree of separation
be granted hi last marriage will be
invalid, and fee himself automatically
made: bigamist,' H claims that ht
has already been divorced.
Mrs. Jeanette Williams was on the
Stand mosf of the morning. ' She tes
tified that she married Williams in
September;, 1907, and - that early in
1915 ihe applied for a divorce upon
representations by Williams that he
had accepted a $5,000 a year position
in South America, had sworn himself
to be a single man in order to get
the job and would go to the peniten
tiary for perjury unless she divorced
him. " '
In order to .save him from the peni
tentiary, she testified, she applied for
a divorce and was granted a decree.
Has Decree Bet Aside.
Later, however, she . said, she
learned that Williams had not gone
to South America, -and was planning
to remarry. She accordingly applied
to have the decree set aside, which
Williams then came into court and
asked that the decree to set aside,
the divorce also be set aside, and ob.
tained her consent to the order by
misrepresentation, so she alleges.
Later she learned that he was
planning to be married to his ste
nographer, Miss Caroline Neef, and
again asked to have the decree set
aside, which Judge Sears did on De
cember 24, 1915. This decree is claim
ed to be invalid by Williams.
On the next day Williams was mar
ried to Miss Neef at Columbus, Neb.
While Mrs. Williams was on the
stand, the other Mrs. Williams sat
with Williams and listened to the
testimony which may make her mar
riage void and her husband a bigam

London, July 11. "We are quite

selves and to applaud the skill and
daring of the captain, who appears to
us as a sportsman and has earned his
laurels cleanly," says the Manchester
Guardian, referring to the German
The Guardian says that plans for
submarines of 3,000 to 4,000 tons ex
isted in Germany and England before
the war, but that such vessels were
not built because of the time required
to submerge them and the impossibil
ity of submerging in shallow water.
It points out that the Australian sub
marine A E-2 went from Australia to
the Dardanelles and says that it the
captain and :rew of the Deutchland
are members of the Imperial German
navy the submarine may be dealt with
as a naval auxiliary. Otherwise it is
a blockade runner, which could be
ordered to sto ; if it attempted to
submerge, it would be justifiable to
: "It is unlikely," the guardian con
tinues, "that the moral of the appear
ance in American waters of a German
submarine will be missed after the
threats of Count von Reventlow and
the other Tirpitz writers last spring.
They warned America it was not too
far away for Germany's arm to reach
it. Although the Deutschland may be
disarmed, it is none the less a threat
to the American navy." .
