    THE BEE: OMAHA, FRIDAY, JULY 18, 1919.
Main Floor Offices Will Allow
, Direct Contact With Adver-"
tiscrs and Subscribers On
Passersby of The Bee building
now have ocular evidence of the
remodelling that is going on which
will transform it to accord with
present-day building requirements.
While The Bee and other occupants
of the building are necessarily for
the time subjected to more or less
inconvenience, the plans promise
decided improvements of which all
will benefit and arrangements for
quarters for The Bee will afford bet
ter facilities for the paper in rela
tion to the public than at present
The principal change in the build
ing centers about the main entrance
heretofore taking up a third of the
Farnam street frontage and the
ground floor of the court which was
solely an ornamental feature.
By the new plan two additional
store rooms will be created front
ing on Farnam street, one on each
side of the entrance and The Bee
will occupy "for its business office
two ground floor rooms fronting on
Farnam street. This wtil give The
Bee a Farnam street entrance win
dow space of nearly 40 feet and,
givo direct street contact with ad
vertisers and subscribers without
use of stairs or elevator.
The other departments of The
Beer including the editorial depart
ment, advertising force and circu
lation accounting will remain as at
present on the floor above, but with
relocation for more efficient ac
commodation. The mechanical production of the
paper will be where it now is in
the bridge-connected annex on the
north side of the alley. At the same
time a new press room is to be pro
vided in the basement at a lower
level than the present basement
floor. This will necessitate the re
moval of The Bee's big presses, to
do which without interfering with
the continuous publication of the
paper is a most difficult and deli
cate task,' but has been completely
provided for.
As already announced, the Pelers
Trust company, which has taken
over the lease-hold interest of the
Keystone Investment company, in
the building, is to have the mag
nificent banking room that will be
constructed out of the court and
adjoining space reached through the
main Farnam street entrance. The
Seventeenth and Farnam streets cor
ner has been reserved for an up-town
office of the Western Union Tele
graph company and another store
will be occupied by the Wirthshaft
er cigar establishment, whose pres
ent space will be part of The Bee
office. A number of applicants are
after the other store rooms but it
has not yet been disclosed which
has the preference.
The work of remodeling the en
trance and Farnam street stores is
expected to take about 90 days, the
remainder of the remodeling several
months more.

Henry Wegworth, alias "Frisco
Pete," giving his address as the

It is also alleged by police that
these men, using the? same tactics as
at the Ston home, posing as police
officers entered the home of T. C.
Brown, 3520 South Twentieth
Wegworth was also charged with
unlawful possession of intoxicating
liquor. At the time of his arrest
police say he had a sack of whisky.

Preacher Said to Have
Used Undue Influence
In Making of Will
Undue influence is alleged to have
been exercised over a dying man by
Rev. J. Costello, superintendent of
the Pleasant Green Baptist mission,
in a protest filed in county court
yesterday against the probating of
the will of the late Lee Rov Sinele-
ton, 1422 North Twenty-second
Singleton died suddenly on June
1, 1919, and left a peculiar will, leav
ing his entire estate to Rev. Mr.
The will was written May 31, 1919,
with a lead pencil on a small sheet,
torn from a note book and reads as
"If a die i want Rev. J. Costello to
se about puting me away and what
time. My money i have left i will
it to him, this is don by own request.
Lee Roy Singleton."
The will was witnessed by Mrs.
Lizzie Lavent. Mrs. Mamie Lillie
and Miss Josie Lillie.
The protest alleges that the wit
nesses also exercised undue influence
over the Hvinar man and also that
he was of unsound mind at the time
he signed the will, which was only a
few hours before his death.
The orotest is made on behalf of
Mrs. Rose Duncan of Natchez, Miss.,
grandmother of the deceased, who is
said to be his sole heir-at-law. The
estate amounts to $1,250.
Elaborate Chop Suey Cafe
Is Planned by Omaha -firm
The H. A. Wolf Co. announces
that the upper two floors of the
building at 315 South Sixteenth
street, formerly known as the Han
son cafe, have been leased to the
King Fong Co., which is planning to
remodel the building at a cost of
$50,000 and to open one of the larg
est chop suey cafes in the west. A
representative of the new lessees
has gone to China to buy oriental
decorations. The King Fong Co. is
a partnership composed of the pres
ent -owners of the Mandarin and
King Joy restaurants.
D. C. Patterson, on behalf of the
Real Estate exchange, is circulat
ing petitions to request the city
council to submit a bond proposi
tion of $5,000,000 for water power
projects on the Platte or Loup
This proposition has been in the
hands of a special committee ap
pointed by the Real Estate ex
change and has been approved by
the exchange.
, The object is to obtain electric
power for Omaha at a rate that will
attract new industries, Mr. Patter
son said.
"It is not necessary for us to ob
tain petitions, but we are doing so,
that in the event the city council
should not pass the necessary or
dinance, calling for an election, we
may submit such an ordinance to
an initiative election?' Mr. Patfer-
son added.
He further explained that the
bonds would not be a tax on the
people in the same sense that the
county road bonds will be, but that
the principal, interest and cost of
operation would be paid by the
consumers of power.
The special committee of the
Real Estate exchange has reports
from the state engineer showing the
feasibility of various proposed
plans of developing the power of
the Loup or Platte rivers.
The first paragraph of the peti
tions being circulated, reads: "The
state engineer reports that water
power can be developed from the
Loup and Platte rivers in units of
60,000 12-hour-power at a cost of
less than $5,000,000, and delivered
into Omaha at a net cost, per kilo
watt hour, at less than one-third
that of power produced from
steam." v
Mr. Patterson stated that his
committee hopes to submit the bond
proposition at the time of the pri
mary election, September 9.
