CHEROKEE IN POOR

Commander; of Craft Which
Took Down Thirty People
Wrote Letter to Father
Gloucester, Mass., March 3. The
naval tug Cherokee, which foundered
off the Deleware capes last Tuesday,
causing the loss of nearly 30 lives was
sent to sea notwithstanding the re
ports of her commander, Lieutenant
Edward D. Newell of this t.ty, to the
Navy department that she Mas un
seaworthy, according to a letter given
out tonight by Dr. Gearge H.. Newell,
tatlicr of the young officer. Lieu
tenant Newell went down with his
ship. 1 -
Dr. and Mrs. Newell left here todav
for Philadelphia to be present at the'
court of inquiry into the ship s loss,
which convenes on Monday in that
city. Before his departure Dr. Newell
made public a letter winch he wrote
to Secretary Daniels.
Camouflaged by Name.
"At the time of his (Lieutenant
Newell's) last visit home, February
17," Dr. Newell wrote, "he stated
that the reason for changing the name
of the Cherokee was for the purpose
of blinding the public to the worth
lessness of the kind of craft for which
they are speeding the people's money.
Furthermore, after his fruitless, ap
peals . to the various officials With
whom he was in touch, he had with
him his final appeal written kn offi
cial paper,, which he had addressed to
your office at Washington, giving
many reasons wherein the vessel was
unseaworthy, one of the things
specifically . mentioned being the
steering gear, which was apparently
the principal cause of ihe disaster.
"Knowing all this, and with full
appreciation of the responsibility
resting in him for the lives of those
of whom he was in command, there
can be ho question of his obeying
an order to put to sea. It would
seem the responsibility lies not with
those who gave this order, but rather
with those who from inefficiency or
something much worse, made it
possible under the existing conditions,
and there is going to be many an
aching hearts of those who have
boys still in the service until the
government has convinced them that
another such calamity is , not to be

NEAR SIDE STOP
APPLIED TO THE
New Order of Things Causes
Some Misunderstandings, But
Plan Works Out Fairly
Well From the Start. '
Omaha was introduced again yes
terday to .the nearside street car stop.
Notwithstanding signs on the front
of cars and signs inside of the cars,
citizens in some instances forgot all
about the new order of things and
waited for cars at the old corners.
Patrons rushed from the far-side cor
ners when they observed the cars at
the near-sides, and they indulged in
laughs over their absent mindedness.
At Twenty-eighth and Leavenworth
streets, a stout woman with two chil-
dren stood on the far-side fpr a car
which stopped on the other corner.
The motorman realized the woman's
mistake and motioned for her to walk
to the other corner, but she motioned
back for him to come over to her cor
ner, whereupon a chivalrous man
rushed up and explained to the woman
who made some remark about the
perversity of things in general,; and
street cars in particular. . ' ,
Street Car Officials Satisfied.
Street , car company' officials ex
pressed satisfaction over the results
of the near-stop regime. They an
ticipated there would be some mis
understandings and that it is human
to forget, so they instructed their
men to be a little lenient for a few

One of the "effects of the near-side
stop in some instances Will be to
change the waiting places from drug
stores to other stores or to vacant,
corners, or to corners where inside
accommodations are . not available.
For instance, the southwest .corner
drug store at Twenty-fourth and
Leavenworth streets has been popular
as a waiting place for persons who
transferred to southbound crosstown
cars. Now these cars stop on the
northwest corner, where there is a
soft drink parlor; '.
: Close All Days at Six
The . Burgess-Nash company last
night began closing its store at'. 6
o'clock instead of 9 o'clock,' as an
nounced at a 'recent meeting oi the
General Manager Redmond in com
menting upon the important . move
taken by the store, said: , "It has been
our desire ever since we opened the
store under the name of Burgess
Nash to close on Saturdays , at 6
o'clock and give our organization that
consideration to which it is entitled.
"We realUe that it. was ; a radical
move for a young organization to
make and naturally hesitated. K.-
"For several ' months last year we
kept, records of our sales between .the
hours of 6 o'clock and 9 o'clock on
Saturday, and found the percentage
so small in proportion to the total
business of the day, and., being, able
to give the closing a good tryout dur
ing the last few weeks, we decided to
continue to close. We will remain
closed every Saturday after 6 o'clock.
