The city council chamber is becom
ing quite a social center, where ora
tory is heard every now and then. The
council meetings used to be dry, for
mal affairs, but i new esprit de corps
have been developed, and every now
and then there is a session that is
worth the money.
At a meeting of the council commit
tee of the whole yestterday morning,
J. A. Sunderland, R. B. Howell, Mayor
Dahlman and Commissioners Butler
and Jardine held a little forensic free-for-all.
The remark was made that
the council chamber is a public
speedway where debaters may burn
up a tew shavings.
K. a. Howell and I. A, Sunderland
were the chief exponents of spoken
ideas on this occasion. Mr. Sunder
land appeared as chairman of the
Commercial club's special electric
light rate committee, to ask that the
council agree to delegate a repre
sentative to confer with a represen
utive of the light company in I he
capacity of advising the special com
mittee before it makes up its final re
port ot information recently prepared
oy three experts.
Howell Speaks Up.
is there anything in your engi
neer's report which the public should
not know?" asked Mr. Howell, who
added: "The committee should do its
work openly and above board. Your
committee is in an unfortunate posi
tion. The public does not feel that
the electric light company is paving
the expenses of these engineers for a
report adverse to the company."
"1 resent the imputation that our
committee is dominated by General
Harries or the light company, lhis
is an honorable committee," replied
Mr. Sunderland, with considerable

Commissioner Butler insisted that

The discussion arose when the But
ler 6-cent electric light rate ordinance
was brought up. This ordinance was
laid over for sixty days upon motion
or the mayor.
Mr. Sunderland explained that his
uuiumittee is endeavoring to perlorni
a publir. service in arriving al what
would be a reasonable and just rate,
or rates, to be charged by the light
company. In view of this effort by
the committee a majority ot the city
council believe that the Commercial
club's, committee should be given an
opportunity to complete its work in
its own way, the understanding being
that, the findings ot the committee
have no binding effect on the council,
but will be accepted tor what they
may be worth.
On Brandeis Estate
Will Net Tidy Sum
Douglas county will profit very ma
terially from the inheritance tax on
the estate of the late Arthur Bran
deis, although the amount paid will
not be as great as that from several
other estates probated in Omaha
According to Lounty Judge Bryce
Crawford, the amount to be paid in
from the Arthur Brandeis estate will
probably be between $5,000 and $6,000.
The amount goes into the road fund.
Administrators have not yet filed
their formal inventory of property
and no appraisal for purpose ot col
lecting the income tax can be made
until they do so.
The estate of Hugo Brandeis paid
an inheritance tax of $9,900, but the
estate of his brother, Arthur, will not
reach this figure, as he was a citizen
of New York state at the time of his

for any young man that applies to us.
and we will try to give him just the
work that he Is looking for," said
Mr. Shaw. "I found that Omaha has
been among the leaders in the large
cities of the country in providing vo
cational and cultural courses for
young men. It has, indeed, surpassed
niany of the larger eastern cities in

Refer Street Opening
Problem to City Lawyers
Two ordinances, referring to tht
opening of Douglas street, Twenty
fourth street to Twenty-fifth avenue,
were referred by the city council com
mittee of the whole to the city at
torney and City Planning board for
report next Monday. There is a legal
question whether the division of this
improvement into two districts in
order to keep within the $50,000
maximum for any one district, is a
subterfuge which might invalidate the
FOND HAS BALANCE
New Automobile License Law
Proves Bonanza for Doug
las County Highways.
INCREASE IN LICENSES
If Douglas county roads are not in
good condition this season it will not
be due to a lack of available funds to
keep them in shape.
The new automobile. license law is
proving a genuine bonanza, so far as
Douglas county is concerned, and the
road dragging fund now contains a
balance of $26,579.32, immediately
available for road dragging, upon
order of the county commissioners.
The number of automobile licenses
issued this year is far in excess of
expectations, and the number issued
daily continues to be large. : More
than 200 numbers have been issued
since July 1, and the total of ma
chines licensed in Douglas county is
nearing the 8,000 mark, according to
County Treasurer Ure.
The annual license is $3, or $1.50
for six months, the licenses expiring
December 31, 1916. Of the amount
paid, 35 cents goes into the state
treasury to pay for numbers and reg
istration, and the balance goes Into
the road dragging fund of the county
in which the license is paid.
Balance Is Large.
Since January 1, $20,500 has been
paid into the Dounglas county road
dragging fund from this source, and
a balance of $10,167 was on hand at
the opening of the vear. So far the
county commissioners have ordered
the expenditure of but $4,087 for
"We are keeping the roads in aaod
shape, and for the first time have
plenty of money available for drag
ging, ' said Commissioner A. C
Harte. "We have one big machine
at work on the Military road to Elk
City, another on the Lincoln high
way, and a third on other main trav
eled roads running into Omaha. In
addition, we are employing a num
ber of four-horse machines on the
lateral roads intersecting with the
other highways. Plenty of funds are
on hand to keep our men employed
constantly, and Douglas county road:
should show great improvement un
der the new law."

(Continued From Saturday.)
Though the earthquake caused con
siderable material damage to Sands
boro, partially wrecking the hotel, a
bank and several smaller buildings,
but few casualties and no fatalities
resulted. Within an hour Hope, Cleo
and Dr. Owen, their clothing still
showing traces of dust and falling
plaster, were seated about a table in
the letter's study, poring over the
book which Cleo had snatched from
Olga during the panic in the restau
rant. "There's nothing in this one,
either," said Hope disgustedly, as he
turned the last leaf and slammed the
cover. "That leaves six more books
to" look for. Things are narrowing
down, in any event.'
Where do we go nowr asked
"The next name on the list," said
Hooe. taking from his pocketbook the
page from Dawson's ledger, "is Rich
ard Patten, care general delivery,
"And where is Santa Eulalia?
"It's at the southern end of the
San Joaquin valley, Miss Burke," said
the physician. "Right in the edge of
the mountains. It's only a small place.
You shouldn t have difficulty in imd-
ing your man there."
When Hope and Cleo descended
from the branch line local at Santa
Eulalia late the following afternoon
they found that they were, as Owen
had said, in the edge ot tne moun
tains. Santa Eulalia is one of those
rural communities where everyone is,
or professes to be, familiar with the
details of everyone else's business. In
such towns there are three recognized
fountain-heads of information: The
hotel, the general store and the bar
ber shop, and, as the proprietor of
the general store was also postmaster,
it was to him that Hope, having set
tled Cleo in the onlv hotel that the
town boasted, addressed his inquiries.
"Do I know Dick Patten?" repeated
the storekeeper in response to Hope's
question. "Well, I reckon I do. I've
sold a heap of goods to Dick. He's
outfitted with me for's much as fif
"What is his business?" asked
"Well," said the merchant r.
r fan., but later cleo I flectively, "I reckon you might call
:."r.y,:SiPicl Prospector and not be
iar wrong. At any rate, that's what ,
he's been doing as long's I've known
him. Never made a strike that I
heard tell of, but he always has
money to pay his bills. A queer fel
low, Dick is. Quiet sort, fond of
books, never talks about himself,
seems to like his own company, stays
just long enough to get his mail and
load up his burro Vith provisions, and
then he's off for the mountains again.
He takes a trip to 'Frisco once or
twice a year and when he comes back
he usually has a lot of old books with
him. Gets 'em to read when he's
off prospecting, I reckon. Come to
think of it, he'd just got back from
the city the last time I seen him."
"How long ago was that?" -
"About a week ten days maybe."

"Not the least in the world, friend.
Were you wanting to see him about
"Yes," said Hope, "I want to see
him very much indeed."
"Then the best thing you can do,
friend," the storekeeper asserted, "is
to sit right down here in Santa
Eulalia and wait for him."
The Kern county fair had opened
ita gates and the people of the county
for half a hundred miles around were
pouring into Bakersfield in motor
cars, in wagons, and on horseback, by
train. As 4 o'clock drew , near,
the crowd deserted these attractions
and slowly drifted toward the field
where Bob Smith, the Daredevil of
the Sky," was advertised to give his
hair-raising and perilous aeroplane
As Smith, a slim, wiry built fel
low, clad in the leather garments of
an aviator, was crossing the field
from the hangar to his waiting aero
plane, he was hailed by a tall young
men who, accompanied by a fashion
ably dressed woman, had, with con
siderable difficulty, pushed his way
through the crowd.
"Hello, Bob I" hailed the Itranaer
evidently an easterner by his dresb.
"don't you remember me now that
you've become famous?"
"By Jove," exclaimed the aviator,
running forward with outstretched
hand, "if it isn't Gerald Morton 1
What on earth are you doing here?"
"Oh. I'm spending a few dava down

turning to Olga, "is responsible for
