Anticipated secrecy personified
marked the first afternoon's work of
the grand jury, which has settled
clown to business in its awesome
looking quarters on the fourth floor
of the court house, starting the
wheels in its own part of the ma
chinery of justice amoving ill the
usual closed-door manner, particu
larly so this year and in a fashion
that would make the old star cham
ber sessions line up like free-for-all
Georgia camp meetings in compari
son. This grand jury's own and inimit
able brand of secrecy fairly oozed out
from between the cracks of the closely-guarded
doors. Everyone entering
the grand jury chamber was given
the most' scrutinizing once-over by an
eagle-eyed bailiff who, bewhiskercd
like a Russian Cossack, might have
been mistaken for the outer guard at
a nihilist's plot to blow up the czar.
The first two witnesses to break the
ice arid enter the mysterious portals
walked past the outer guard as if
they were reading above the door
the words, "All hope abandon ye who
enter here." They gave the "fish-eye"
to a reporter, on whose bald pate the
lights of the court house have shone
through several grand jury cam
paigns. One T. Lawson, himself
couldn't have discovered a "leak" on
the opening day of the present grand j
Instructed by Judge.
That autocratic body, whose secret
conclaves are supposed to strike ter
ror to the hearts of all evil-doers, met
at 11 o'clock yesterday morning and
was charged by the presiding judge of
the district court to investigate "ru
mors" of gambling, any infraction of
the liquor laws, the management of j
me county jau, nospuai ana otner in
stitutions, whether inn keepers are
living up to the laws, anything in the
way of prostitution, the way public
and private homes for children are
being conducted, dope peddling, the
selling of cigarettes u minors and all
iolations of the criminal laws.
The present grand jury, called some
lime ago by the district court, is the
lirst in two years. The jury is a
cosmopolitan looking one, having as
its members Omahans of varied occu
pations and callings. One of the
jurors is a negro teamster. The fore
man is George E. Haverstick, vice
president of the United States Na

governors of Ak-Sar-Ben and promi

ALIEN BILL WITH
ABC TEST VETOED
President Rejects Immigration
Measure Because of Its
RADICAL CHANGE IN POLICY
Washington, Jan. 29. Today presi
dent Wilson vetoed the immigration
bill passed recently by congress be
cause of its literacy test provision.
It was the second time that Presi
dent Wilson had vetoed an immigra
tion bill because of the literacy test
and for the same reason similar meas
ures were given vetoes by Presidents
Cleveland and Taft. The president's
veto message to the house, in which
the bill originated, follows:
"I very much regret to return this
bill without my signature.
Radical Change of Policy.
"In most of the provisions of the
bill I should be very glad to concur,
but I cannot rid myself of the con
viction that the literacy test consti
tutes a radical change in the policy
of the nation which is not justified
in principle. It is not a test of char
acter, of quality, or of personal fit
ness, but would operate in most cases
merely as a penalty for lack of op
portunity in the country from which
the alien seeking admission came.
"The opportunity to gain an educa
tion is in many cases one of the chief
opportunities sought by the immi
grant in coming to the United States,
and our experience in the past has
not been that the illiterate immigrant
is, as such, an undesirable immigrant.
Tests of quality and of purpose can
not be objected to on principle, but
tests of opportunity surely may be.
Might Cause Troublt.
"Moveovcr, even if this test might
be equitably insisted on, one of the
exceptions proposed to its applica
tion involves a provision which might
lead to very delicate and hazardous
"The bill exempts from the oper
ation of the literacy tests all aliens
who shall prove to the satisfaction of
the proper immigration officer or to
the secretary of labor that they are
seeking admission to the United
States to avoid religious persecution
in the country of their last permanent
residence, whether such persecution
be evidenced by overt acts or by laws
or governmental regulation that dis
criminates against the alien or the
race to which he belongs, because
of his religious faith.
An Invidious Function.
"Such a provision, so applied and
administered, would oblige the officer
concerned, in effect, to pass judgment
upon the laws and practices of a for
eign government and declare they did
or did not constitute religious perse
cution. This would, to say the least,
be a most invidious function for any
administrative officer- of this govern
ment to perform, and it is not only
possible but probable that very
serious questions of international jus
tice and comity would arise between
this government and the government
or governments thus officially con
demned should its exercise be
"I dare say that these consequences
were not in the minds of the pro
ponents of this provision, but the pro
vision, separately and in itself, renders
it unwise for me to give my assent
to this legislation in its presenUform."
Ordered to Lie on Table.
When the message was read in the
house it was ordered to lie on the
table until Thursday morning and
champions of the bill began laying
their plans for an effort to override
the veto. Chairman Burnett an
nounced tonight that he would move
for a vote Thursday. Two years ago
the house lacked only four votes of
the necessary two-thirds majority to
pass the bill over the veto, the yeas
being 261 and the nays 13b. The at
tempt having failed in the house no
action was taken by the senate.
Report On Print
Paper Inquiry is
Washington, Jan. 29. The federal
trade commission's report on its
news print paper investigation prob
ably will be made to congress late
this week. Final agreement on leg
islation to be recommended and ,a
report on the Canadian situation, it
was learned today; arc all that stand
in the way of its completion. Com
missioner Parry will return from Ot
tawa tonight with information on
measures contemplated by Canadian
officials. The commission's law board
will put before it for approval shortly
recommendations for legislation de
signed to prevent a similar paper
shortage situation in the future.
Welcome Arch Costs City
Two Thousand a Year
'"Welcome to our city."
The welcome arch at Eighteenth
and Farnam streets cost the city $1,
791.55 during 1916 for maintenance.
The current cost $469.17 and repair
ing and changing letters entailed an
expenditure of $1,322.38.
During the year many promicnt
pcrsonsof the nation were given an
illuminated welcome. Among those
personages were President Wilson,
Charles i. Hughes. Vice President
Marshall. Charles Warren Fairbanks

OMAHA GETS TWO
Hill Road Will Spend This Sum
on Improvements in Gate
City During Current
Will Have Capacity of Two
Million Bushels and Will
Be Enlarged Later.
GRADE HILLS AT GIBSON
The Burlington Railroad company
will spend $2,000,000 in Omaha this
Of this sum, $1,000,000 will be ex
pended in the construction of a 2,000,-000-bushcl
capacity elevator at Gib
son and the other $1,000,000 in grad
ing down hills in the vicinity of Gib
son, where an industrial center will
he built up, in double tracking the
line between Omaha and South Oma
ha and in cutting down the hump that
juts out to the north, west of the
south end of the Tenth street viaduct.
Announcement of these expediturcs
was made by H. E. Byram, vice presi
dent in charge of operation, and C. E.
Burnhain, vice president in charge of
traffic, both of whom were in Oma
ha yesterday afternoon, en route
west on an inspection tour of the
company lines west of the Missouri
river. The two vice presidents were
met here by General Manager Hold
rege, who accompanies them on their
Vice President Burnham made the
announcement relative to expendi
tures in Omaha and it was concurred
in by Vice President Byram. The for
"You may say that the Burlington
by purchase from the Kountze estate,
has acquired title toJ30 acres of land
adjoining and lying south of Gibson.
Here we will, during the summer,;
construct a grain elevator with a ca
pacity of 2,000,000 bushels. It will be
of the tank type, concrete construc
tion and modern in every particular.
It will be built with a view to increas
ing the capacity to 10,000,000 by the
construction of additional tanks. This
elevator will be ready in time to
handle the next crop.
Look Toward Future.
"We look upon Omaha as one of
the greatest grain markets in the
country, and want to be in line to
handle the business as it increases
from year to rear.
"On the tract of ground that we
have bought at Gibson, we will do a
great amount of grading, cutting
down the hills on the west and filling
in the low places to the east. This
tract we intend to develop into an in
dustrial center and, owing to flic fact
that it is a part of Omaha, we think
it ought to be desirable for persons,
firms and corporations seeking loca
tions for manufacturing enterprises.
"With the coming of spring, we
will begin grading the line between
Omaha and South Omaha for double
track. In doing this, we are going
to cut off the hump west of our pas
senger depot, thus enabling us to
take out the curve that has been so
objectionable in the past."
Car Problem Solved.
Relative to the freight car short
age, Vice President Byran asserted
that he believes it will soon be ended.
A plan has been worked out for re
lieving it and this is it, according to
"Railroad presidents of alt the
roads of the country have signed an
agreement that becomes effective
February 21. This agreement pro
vides that every road holding the
cars of any other road shall unload
them immediately, or at least with
the greatest possible speed, and at
once return them to the roads own
ing them. This agreement is in line
with a rule applied by the Interstate
Commerce commission, relative to
coal cars, and has worked admirably.
I believe that within thirty days after
the agreement has gone into effect,
the car shortage will begin to adjust
itself and that in the future there will
be little cause for effect."
While the Burlington is in good
shape for handling freight business
along its system at this time, it is
going to be in still better condition
next fall. Mr. Burnham asserted that
the company has recently purchased
2,500 new box cars, 500 of which have
been delivered and the remaining
2,000 will come along between now
and the next small grain harvest.
In addition to the 2,500 box cars
Mr. Burnham asserted that the com
pany has purchased 3,000 all-steel
coal cars and fifty locomotives of the
largest type, all to be delivered in
time to handle the business next sum
mer and fall.

DON'T QUIT Others have had hard going and still they got to the top. Nelson was a little
one-armed, one-eyed shrimp, who became seasick as soon as he stepped aboard his ship. Yet
that didn't stop him from winning at Trafalgar. Beethoven was deaf, but his music lives for
ever. Milton was blind, but instead of repining he wrote "Paradise Lost." So stop pitying
yourself and start plugging.

was said, after which the troops will

Union Pacific Officials Pessi
mistic as to Lifting of
FEAR AN ABSOLUTE TIEUP
Cheyenne, Wyo., Jan. 29. Four
inches of new snow and a high wind
again completely blockaded transcon
tinental traffic on the Union Pacific
lines in Wyoming tonight.
Efforts of hundreds of workmen to
keep cuts clear of snow were futile,
and officials say the immediate out
look for improvement was bad.
Cheyenne. Wyo., Jan. 29. Union
Pacilic trains were boring westward
through a heavy snow storm early
tonight, but officials of that road were
pessimistic as to lifting the blockade
which has gripped the road intermit
tently for the last six days.
Over a seventy-five-niile stretch
fronv Bosler to Walcott there was
heavy wind and much snow. The
snow was reported to be drifting.
Railroad officials said trains two
and three days late reached Ogden
today. Six west bound trains were
moving and eight were being held at
Eight east bound trains waiting at
Rawlins, four, twenty-four hours late,
were at Hanna, and four others, also
a day behind, were back of a snow
plow at Medicine Bow, but were to
start eastward when all the west
hound traffic had passed that point.
In view of high winds, railroad of
ficials feared the blockade would be
come absolute once more tonight.
Salt Lake Without Mail.
Salt Lake City, Jan. 29. Salt Lake
City has been without mail from the
east since last Thursday and business
firms of this city have suffered losses
as the consequence. Rising prices in
foodstuffs also have been noted due
to the lack of freight shipments.
Potatoes are selling at 65 cents a
peck, the highest price on record here.
Railroad officials declare that the
snow blockade has been broken and
that eight trains carrying mail will
arrive here early tonight.
Divorce Bill Will Bar
Cheyenne, Wyo., Jan. 28. (Spe

a divorce law which, while removing
the present prohibition against the

from another state who have been di

within one year of the hearing of a
divorce action, is indicated by the atti

No. 10, providing that a decree of
divorce shall not issue until one year
has elapsed after the trial of the

Baltimore, Md Jan. 29. The the

Johns Hopkins university. He took
150 bonks from homes in which diph

books from a public library that had
been incirculation for many years
among children in whose homes sani

The books were swabbed with sterile
cotton in such manner as to gather
all germs. In no instance could the
diphtheria baccilus be isolated from
the books and the bacteria collected

New York, Jan. 29. A sweeping de
nial of all of Thomas W. Lawson's
charges against him, particularly his
alleged association with Secretary
McAdoo in Wall street deals, were
made today before the "leak" inves
tigation committee by Pliny Fisk of
Harvey Fisk & Sons, New York bank
Among the categorial denials made
by Fisk were that he never had a joint
Wall street account with McAdoo and
a "senator O.," that he had told Archi
bald White or anyone else that he
controlled Secretary McAdoo and had '
offered to call him out of bed at an
early morning hour to answer a tele
phone call-and that he had received
any advance information regarding
President Wilson's recent peace note.
Asked if his firm had ever enjoyed
any advantages in transaction with

suggesting to Secretary McAdoo that
offices in a building his firm owned
would be suitable for the federal re

"Have you ever purchased, or
caused to be purchased, in the last
four years, any securities in which
Secretary McAdoo was interested?"
