Super-hot criticism of conditions
in certain public institutions, charges
of laxity on the part of the police de
partment in enforcing the law, scath
ing denunciation of alleged existing
evil in pool halls, strong recommenda
tion for a change in the Albert law. so
that prostitution can be confined to
a restricted district, instead ospread
iug throughout the city, as is alleged,
and pertinent suggestions that changes
be made in the way some officials are
conducting their offices are some of
the high lights in the report of the
Douglas county grand jury, which
"was made yesterday noon to Judge
Sears just before the body adjourned
after a four weeks' session of investi
gating and indicting.
The inquisitorial body returned forty-three
true bills in its month's ses
sion behind closed doors on the fourth
floor of the court house.
High Cost of Living.
In considering the H. C. of L. the
grand jury recommended that, on ac
count of the high cost of foodstuffs,
steps should be taken to increase the
present allowance of 32 cents a day
lor feeding prisoners in the county
jail. The grand jurors declared that
the present sum, in their judgment,
was insufficient for the purchase of
food of the proper quantity and qual
ity. The action of the democratic board
in changing superintendents at the
Riverview Detention home was rap
ped by the grand jury in its report.
"The former management was ca
pable and should have been retained,"
the reflOid'lLisjmfM.tunat for
the county that with every change in
political control it is deemed neces
sary to make a change in our county
institutions. Civil service, in our judg
ment, should prevail."
The grand jury noted a lack of pro
bation wards in various children's
homes and day nurseries inspected by
the' body. The report said that the
Child Saving Institute was the only
ne provided with a ward of this na
ture. On Maternity Homes.
The report observed that maternity
homes, "though few in number, are
regularly conducted, are in good san
itary, condition, and, with two excep
tions, are operated under proper
The work of the juvenile court was
commented on favorably by the body.
The 1917 edition of the grand jury
admitted that it couldn't find words
strong enough to condemn the city
jail and said so. The report of the
jurors insisted that "words would ab
solutely fail to adequately express our
.feelings in the matter." A "disgrace
to the city," a "veritable fire-trap,
where employes and prisoners daily
risk their lives," were a couple of the
far from complimentary appellations
applied to it. That the city commis
sion, in case of a fire and attendant
loss of life, could be held criminally
liable, was a phase of the report.
Recommends New Jail.
A new central police station and
commodious jail, two subpolice sta
tions, one in the northern part of the
city and the other in the western
portion, and the abandonment of the
present quarters at the earliest possi
ble time, were recommendations.
The report said that the grand
jury found the workhouse to be in
good condition. The city commis
sioners were commended for keeping
the prisoners constantly employed
and especially for using them for
While the grand jury's report
stated that the South Side city hall
building was in exceptionally good
condition, the jail, located south of
the city hall, was vigorously panned.

Starting at midnight Friday an en
tire army of decpratos began their
task of transforming the barn-like
Auditorium into an appropriate mo

all last night these decorators worked
and toiled and they will continue
their labor today and tonight, so
that every detail will be completed
when the doors swing open on the
glittering display Monday morning.
The decorative scheme this year,
while perhaps not so seemingly elab
orate and pretentious as in the past,
is vastly superior and much more ap
propriate for an automobile show
than those of previous years. The
scheme is very simple tins year, but
it is very impressive, especially in
the lighting elrects. No floor lamps
will be used at all this year, all the
light in the building coming from in
candescents overhead. Many high
powered incandescents, entailing the
most extensive kind of electrical
work, hang in irregular order on long
supports. And not only do they
spread a soft, quiet glow all over the
huge building into every nook and
corner, so that every car on display
can be inspected to good advantage,
but they completely hide the barren
rafters and bleak-looking loft of the

factories in fcssen is constantly ex

The paper says that 40,000 workers
are now on strike due to lack of food
and that disturbances have occurred
at Aix La Chacelle from the same
cause. The oolice asked for the inter
vention of troops, who, it is said, re
fused to act.

FALL OFFERS BILL
,Ua'U .st U. S.
FOLLOWS BITTER DEBATE
Administration Senators Are
j Taken Completely by Sur

STONE MUCH REGRETS IT
Washington, Feb. 24. A resolution
i authorizing the president to use the
! armed forces of the United States to
protect the commerce, property and
lives of the citizens of the United
States' was introduced today in the
senate by Senator Fall, republican.
Senator Fall's resolution was of
fered by unanimous consent after a
bitter two-hour debate on the inter
national situation in which repub
licans disclaimed any desire to with
hold support from the president in
handling the situation.
Demos Surprised. f
The authority to be extended by the
resolution is along the general line of
that which has been understood Presi
dent Wilson would request from con
gress some time next week. Senator
Fall's action took administration sen
ators completely by surprise.
Senator Kail asked that the bill go
to the foreign relations committee
and Chairman Stone consented after
he had objected to the way in which
the measure had been introduced.
Stone Regrets Action.
"I greatly regret that such a bill as
this has been introduced at this time,"
said Senator 'Stone. "Nevertheless, I
see no way of disposing of it except
by letting it go to the committee."
The bill would give the president
wide authority to protect lives and
property of Americans or to authorize
American merchant ships to protect
themselves against searches and seiz
ures or capture.
President W:ilson this afternoon
had a half hour's conference with
Chairman Stone of the senate foreign
relations committee, Vice President
Marshall, Senator Saulsbury, presi
dent pro tempore of the senate, and
Senators James, Pomerne, Hollis and
Swanson. It was stated he confer
ence did not discuss the present legis
lative situation nor the international
situation. ! '

After Senator Poindexter, republi
can, had been talking for five hours,
Senator Williams of Mississippi
aroused the ire of republicans by
charging that they had received or
ders from the munitions makers of the
country to defeat the revenue bill.
The democrats held a conference
after republicans had dropped all
disguises in the filibuster and had
participated in an obstructive debate
for two hours on the legislative ap
propriation bill' conference report.
"We're going to insist on keeping
this revenue hill before the senate, no
matter what happens," said Senator
Simmons. "The whole preparedness
program and the destiny of the na
tion is dependent upon this bill, and
if the republicans want to take re
sponsibility for imperiling the coun

There will be no compromise on this
