An attractive bill of variety greets Empress patrons today. A feature will be the laughing novelty offered by the Joe Boganny troupe, six male athletes ot assorted sizes and weights who have one of the fun niest comedy acrobatic novelties in vaudeville. Logan, Oonn and Ha zel have an offering on the sketch order. Corp. Joe Nathan is an en tertainer and has a way of telling stories about army life that creates no end of merriment. Coley and Jaxon have a comedy offering re plete with entertaining patter. In grace and charm and ability the Barr Twins, who appear at the Orpheum this week, are much like the Dolly Sisters. They are es pecially pleasing in such dance num bers as "The Old-Fashioned Walt" a.d Ihe Uriental fan Jango. Another headline attraction is "The Vocal Verdict, presented in two scenes, by Maud Earl, a singer of distinction. Her repertory covers a wide range, from opera to simple ballads. Bessie Remple in "A Child of Childs," a mystery farce by Tom Harry, is a conspicuous feature of the bill. The sale of seats for Gus Edwards' 1919 song revue, which comes next week, is brisk. "Mavtimp " the nhfnnnipna1 mn- sical success, is to be seen at the I Bovd next Sunday night for the week. The story is romance at its most improbable, and there is an adroit stage fallacy, if you will, in the ending. The cast includes John Charles Thomas, John T. Murray and Carolyn Thomson as the featur ed artists, and Russell Lannon, Howard Marsh, Esberg Wheeler, Ezra Walck, Alfred Hemming, Jen- ette Methven, Grace Studiford, Isa- belle Vernon, Tillle Salinger, Clar ice Snyder, Betty Kirkbride and Ofelia Calvo (the Gypsy dancer) in other important roles. Matinees Wednesday and Saturday. Much fun is injected into the joy ous proceedings at the Gayety this week by Beulah La Von, a chorus girl with a truly leather-lunged voice. When she chirps her sub cellar notes can be heard over the other 25 or 30 combined voices, and in the ''pick-out" number, during which the various choristers have their individual chance at singing Oh, So Pretty, the audience is never satisfied until Miss La Von has her try at it. It is said that during the summer months she has a government position at a rocky point on the 'Atlantic coast where she substitutes or a fog-horn while the said horn takes its vacation. Ladies' matinee daily at 2:15. It is 17 years since Mr. Warfield first appeared in "Th- Auctioneer," which he will present at the Bran deis on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. Despite changing tastes in things theatrical, his performance in the role of the old peddler, Si mon Levi, continues to amuse play goers as much as ever. Mme. Frances Alda to Sing , French and English Songs Mme. Frances Alda, who will ap pear in recital at the Auditorium Friday evening March 7, will sing as a number in one of her groups the famous "Un bel di vendremo" (some day he'll come) from Mme. Butterfuly. Other groups will in clude French, Norwegian, Finnish and English as well as songs of the more popular vein. Another feature will be the beau tiful decorations and. lighting effects that have been installed for the automobile show and which will lend an artistic background and sur rounding to the occasion. In an effort to meet the demand for popular priced seats several hun dred chairs on the arena floor will be p at $1 be placed on sale Friday morning 1.00.

Methods. Washington Bureau, Omaha Bee. Washington, March 5. With a desire to get majority committee places settled as expeditiously as possible, the committee on commit tees in the republican caucus met this morning and elected Repre sentative Mann temporary chair man, although it had been the in tention' to elect Rep. J. Hampton Moore of Pennsylvania chairman of the committee. A good-natured protest was entered by a number of western representatives to the cut and dried plan of the Mann followers and as a result Mann himself consented to serve. One of the first things the com mittee did was to decide that the re publican membership of the ten leading committees of the house should be continued as at present constituted, although Representative Longworth asked that the ways and means committee matter be passed over. Congressman Mondell of Wyom ing, who will be a candidate for floor leader, called Longworth's hand by saying that he had two motives in his opposition to present considerations. First, he wanted to beat Fordney of Michigan for the chairmanship, and second he wanted the chairmanship of the ways and means committee to carry with it majority leadership. Accepting Mondell s version as representing" the true situation, the committee on committees at once decided that seniority should gov ern as to committee chairmanships which made Fordney the new chair man of the ways and means. Han sen of Iowa will preside over agri culture, Kennedy of Iowa over rivers and harbors, while Good of Iowa will get the important chair manship of appropriations. What Nebraska Wants. The afternoon session of the com mittee was given over largely to hearing nominations of representa tives state delegations for com mittee places for their colleagues. Judge Kinkaid nominated Jefferis for military affairs, which nomina tion was seconded by Green of Iowa on political grounds, although there are only three vacancies on the military affairs commktee and a number of the older members want one of the vacancies. Kinkaid further placed in nomination An drews for ways and means; Evans for rivers and harbors; and Mc Laughlin for agriculture, y As all the other delegations made their nominations it easily will be seen that the committee on com mittees has no small job in front of it to prepare a list of commit tees which it must submit to the full conference before its final adop tion. Among other things the commit tee on committees did was to select chairmanships for other important committees. Judge Kinkaid of the Sixth Nebraska district was given the chairmanship of the committee on irrigation of arid lands. Although he was also the ranking member on invalid pensions he chose irri gation, a subject upon which he is regarded as an authority. Canvass Situation. Towner of Iowa was given the chairmanship on insular affairs, subject, oi course, to the caucus action. While no effort was made today to select , a majority leader, Mr. Mann declaring himself wholly out of consideration, the supporters of Mondell ot Wyoming, Moore ot Pennsylvania and Longworth of Ohio were busy canvassing the sit uation. Mr. Mondell said that as long as Mr. Mann had decided not to allow the use of his name, he was prompted to make the race because the west had a right to be consid ered in this matter and for the further fact that Massachusetts and Pennsylvania might in a way be looked upon as reactionary, es pecially as to the votes of their rep resentatives on woman- suffrage, prohibition, good roads, etc. Mondell said he was opposed to dumping everything in the way of political preferment in the east and would ask his friends west, east and north to support his candidacy for floor leader. Trial of Alleged Ex-Convict : for Murder of Nebraskan Los Angeles, Ca!., March 5. (Special Telegram.) Charged with murder, Earl Klyunshire, alleged ex convict and frequently arrested for carrying concealed weapons, ac cording to the poh'ce, went on trial at a preliminary hearing today for slaying M. E. Brink, wealthy Homer, Neb., rancher on the night of February 9, in a Los Angeles hotel. Mr. and Mrs. R. O. Rustad, who conducted the hotel, were the states main witnesses.

The ownership of the gun has not been established. ; The defendant denies the shoot ing. He is said to be a former Deer Lodge, Mont., convict. Housing Question Discussed. The status of proposed legisla tion affecting the Omaha Real Es tate board, especially the license question, was reported by George T. Morton" tnd Paul W. Kuhns at a realtors' meeting in the Chamber of Commerce Wednesday noon. Morton and Kuhns went to Lincoln Tuesday to investigate. . The negro housing problem came up for discussion. Suggestions for meeting it in a way to benefit all concerned were made. , PORK EMBARGO LIFTED; PRICES LIKELY TO RISE (Continued from Fs On) ly to the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Belgium, Japan or Greece or their colonies . possessions or pro tectorates under the special export license issued rcbruary it. Officials of the food administra tion had expected to reach an agreement before the first of the month on continuance of minimum prices for hogs, but after confer ences with the war trade board and President Wilson it was announced no decision would be possible until the president could consider the whole matter of export embargoes. Two statements were issued to night by the food administration. One dealt entirely with the effort of the war trade board's order. This order said former Governor Stuart of Virginia, chairman of the na tional agricultural advisory com mittee; has sent to "his committee and to the swine producers commit tee a statement endorsing and warm ly commending the earnest, but un availing efforts of the food adminis tration to maintain the minimum price for hogs. Statement of Food Administration. The statement regarding the board's action said in part: lhe practical effect of this ac tion of the war trade board is to destroy the ability of the United States food administration to fur ther stabilize the price of live hogs. It was the desire and has been the endeavor of the food administration to continue this stabilization as here tofore and until March 31, when the normal marketing period of hogs farrowed in the spring of 1918 would have terminated. "The whole program of stabiliza tion of prices was the outgrowth of the imperative necessity for stimu lated hog production for war needs at a time when a dangerous short age of fats threatened the entire allied world. "The obligation with respect to the pigs farrowed in the spring of lyio began with the marketing ot September and would have been terminated March 31. From 85 to 90 per cent of these hogs have been sold, lhe huropean demand tor hog products Will increase rather than diminish. v ' "The supply of live hogs coming to market in March and April will be greatly reduced in numbers. The European markets are opening rapidly to free trading in hog prod ucts and the area to be supplied is being made increasingly accessible. The enemy countries are to be giv en opportunity to secure hog prod ucts and other foods. "Li is oossible that as a conse quence of the general situation the j price of hogs and pork may go high er than the stabilized prices- which have been maintained and which tiie I food administration desired to be continued to March 31, next." Russian Jew Fires Two Shots From Home of French President Paris, March 5. A man who later admitted his name was Kneller and that he was a Russian Jew, fired two shots from a revolver from the Pa lais de 1'Elysee, the residence of President Toincare today. Kneller declared that he desired to protest against allied intervention in Russia. The shooting occurred in the pres ence of the guards and sentinels. The bullets tell harmlessly on the veranda of the court of honor. Mediator Makes Progress Toward Ending Harbor Strike New York, March 5. Traffic tn New York harbor remained virtually tied ud at the end of the second day of the marine workers' strike, but James L. Hughes, mediator of the Department of Labor, reported to night that progress had been made toward settlement between the rail road administration and its em ployes, who man 40 per cent of the craft here. Private boat owners and their men apparently were as far as ever from an agreement. Telephone Strike Called in Four western states ?an Kranrirn. March S. A strike of 9,000 telephone operators and 3,000 linemen in California, wasn ington, Oregon and Nevada has been ordered by the executive com mittee of the International Brother hood of Electrical Workers in the fiipnt that Postmaster General Bur leson does not speedily grant- wage Hmanrf nf hm. brotherhood, it was announced here today by T.

"They came from the traction in terests," shouted Mayor Hoan. "Don't get excited," the Portland executive replied. "I've pulled that corporation stuff as you are doing and it goes well with your constitu ents, but I advocate this section be cause we ought to have some gov ernment agency to help us in diffi culties which cannot be settled lo cally." Motion to strike out the clause was defeated 34 to 21. Wants Extra Session. The controversy between Gover nor Cox and Mayor Rolph arose out of a resolution which the mayor in troduced early in the day, demand ing that President Wilson reconvene congress to pass appropriation measures, condemning the building of American shins in Chinese and Japanese yards while contracts in this country were being canceled and favoring the principle of collect ive bargaining. In reporting the committee's decision to accept the resolution Governor Cox said he will be glad to give reasons if de sired. Mayor Rolph failed to obtain postponement of consideration of the report until a night session and then promptly demanded that the governor give the reasons for elimi nating the mayor's resolution. Gov. Cox did not reply and the fight over the adoption of the report began. Later Gov. Cox rose to a Question of personal privilege. .Nothing in word or spirit was in tened to convev asperity to the mayor of San Francisco," he said. "The committee desired to avoid subjects which are matters of polit ical controversy." Mayor Kolph heatedly replied that there was no intention to bring poli tics into the gathering, that he had criticised the republican filibuster which defeated the appropriation measures, but that the only way to get congress "back on the job" was to have the president call an extra session. An attempt to have the conference endorse government ownership of railroads was defeated by acclama tion. At the morning session, dissatis faction of western delegates at what they regarded as the failure of the conference to achieve concrete re sults broke forth in a storm of de bate, during which Secretary Hous ton, who was to have spoken, left the room in the Department of In terior, where today's sessions were held. Director General Hines, who with Secretaries Glass, Redfield, and Lane, addressed the conference today, said the railroad administration was considering the reduction of freight rates on road building material.
