Rev. George F. Jonaitis, Joseph P.
. Uvick and others on the subject of
the political independence of their na
tive country, adopted resolutions ex-
low countrymen who live in Greater
I Omaha and vicinity, which were for
; warded last night to the senators rep
resenting Nebraska in congress.
The resolutions are as follows:
' Whereas, The aggression and out
rages of the autocracy against the lib
erty of the people forced the 'United
States to take arms to defend the peo
ple's rights on land and sea;
Whereas, The United States, being
morally, physically and materially
,one of the most powerful countries, is
able of accomplishing great things in
Whereas, During the war, small na
tions in Europe have suffered the most
and some of the countries have been
entirely devastated by ruthless mili
tarism; Whereas, Lithuania on the eastern
battlcfront has for three years served
as a battlefield, having contributed
Valso half a million or her sons for
the? allied armies, and the Lithuanians
: of American their proportionate share
to the United States army, taking
therebyNan active part in the war for
liberty and justice;
Whereas, The much appreciated
words of President Wilson in the
recent note to Russia and also the
proclaimed principle of nationalities
by the allies, assure restorationof po-
Jincai iioeriy xo me smaiier nauuns;
Whereas, The claim of the nations
could be considered as just only when
they are presented to the peace con
srress bv the authorized representa
tive of those nations; therefore be it
' Resolved, That we the Luthuanians
of the state of Nebraska, having mi
grated from our native land of Lithur
ania to this land of liberty and ever
pledging our loyalty, to this, our
adopted country, sincerely believing
in and livinr-uo to the principles of
the United States of America, being
nevertheless- in sympathy with our
brethren in Lithuania bearing the
heavv voke of autocracy :
1. We appeal to the congress of the
United States through the representa
tives of our state, that the congress
of the United States in discussing
oeace terms include the demand for
the restoration of the political inde'
oendence of Lithuania: ,
2. That the government of the
United States support the rights of all
nations narticinatinz or altected tn
this war. be thev large or small:
; 3. That these rights can only be
aatisfactorilv suonorted by consider
ing just claims when presented by the
representatives oi sucn nations.
Commissioners Visit Site
Of Proposed New Street
Citv commissioners Saturday morn
ing visited the site of the proposed
ooeninff of Dounlas street. Twenty
fourth street to Twenty-fifth avenue,
i which will be discussed by the city
council committee of the whole meet
ing Monday morning '
; Appraisers reported total damages
of 85.325 on a 60-foot opening and
$108,657 on an 80-foot "opening. In
view of the provisions of a law which
fixes a maximum of $100,000 for an
improvement of this nature, unless ap
proved bv a vote of the people, it is.
not probable that the 80-foot proposal
will be adopted. If the-60-foot open
. ing should be approved, the amount
of damages will be obtained by as
T sessing a special tax over an area
' fivhich will be determined by city coun
cil and engineering department (
