TO ASK FEDERAL
'Attorney for Proprietor" of
New Chop Suey Cafe Says
Tongs Must Not In
Latest developments of the
Chinese tong war in Omaha are:
.First, the posting of . a. warning
against all nonmembers of the Un brought back his belief. Clearly, one
lute belief which' the concluding
words of my rather hysterical ex
planation brought was a. remarkable
one. But I had the key to it as soon
as he spoke.
"So Lit knows about it," he said
half meditatively. "Then it's sure to
be straight even if unpleasant I
beg your pardon, Lady Fair. I
ought to have known that you were
still all wool and a yard wide. ' But
I'lPadmlt that between you and our
slimy friend down the road I was
distinctly up in the air 'for a few
fleeting moments. Now, the next
thing is what's to be done?"
If I had possessed an inflated ego
it would certainly have collapsed like
a bubble ac his words. He had been
ready enough to believe that I had
fallen away from the ideals which he
had known me to possess, but the
mere mention of Lillian's name had
Leone tone not to interfere with the
totig'a activities; Second, the ultima
tum of John W. Battin, attorney for
Joe Lee, that if any further effort
is made by the tong to prevent his
client from opening a cafe at 1408
Faruantffeet the matter will be
submitted to federal authorities. t
The warning against nonmembers
of the tons; was posted Thursday at
the entrance to the alleged On
Tfeons Tong den at 111 North
Twelfth street. It is printed in
Chinese characters of black, on an
; Attorney Issues Ultimatum.
' The ultimatum issued by Mr.
Battin came after several confer
, ences with his client, Joe Lee, pro- !
prietor of the California cafe, and
leader of a group of nonmeniber
Chinese, who were routed bysalleged
members of .the tong in a battle at
M08 Fariiam street. Sunday. ,
Lee is paying .n high rent for the
jrepcrty on Kamam street, and
ilans to open the cafe in spite of
:he efforts of the tong, Mr. Battin
ssai(l. The threat published by the
:ong in the January 16 issue of the
"Chung Sai Yat Po," a Chinese
daily paper of San Francisco, which
is carried by United States mails to
all parts of the country, is a fed
oral offense, authorities say, and any
further attempt on the par of the
Omaha branch of the tong to coerce
Lee will be put in the hands of fed
eral officers, Mr. Battin today de
clared. C. of C. JJen Neutral.
Chamber of Commerce officials are
taking a keen interest in the affairs,
but are remaining neutral. They
have taken the stand that the case
is a matter for federal authorities.
Chinese say that at one time there
were three tongs in Omaha. One
has disappeared, and another, the
Hop Sui tong hntr lost so many mem
bers' that the On Leong tong domi
nates the city, Chinese residents
told a Bee reporter.
Common Sense Must '
Fix Gas Plant Value,
District Judge Says
District Judges George A. Day of
Omaha, E. E. Good of Wahoo and
VV V. Alljn of Meadsin yesterday
resumed the hearing of the gas plant
appraisal in connection with the
prospective purchase of the plant by
.. he city, of Omaha.
: Curing an argument by Corpora
tun Counsel Lambert yesterday
fudge Allen remarked: ."The trib
unal' that finally ' passes upon the
valuation must rely on its judgment
and common sense."
Mr. Lambert stated that there are
some things which must be recon
ciled on account of the wide differ
ence between1 the appraisal of $3,
351,000 as returned by the city's ex-
' perts, and the appraisal of more
than $5,500,dOO returned by the gas
V The arguments before the court of
condemnation wilt be continued for
St. John's Lodge Honors Its
. Retiring Secretary at Dinner
St. John's lodge,' No7 25, A. F.
and A. M., . gave a dinner for its
members and visiting brethren at
'"the Masonic Temple Thursday
evening. The occasion was to honor
Brother Carl E. Herring, who was
retiring from the office of secretary
of the lodge after continuous serv
ice of 20 years. 'Worshipful Mas
ter Bell presided, and on behalf of
the lodge, presented to Mr. Herring
a beautiful and costly token of the
appreciation of hisHong service, and
" the esteem and affection of his
brethren. Rev. Titus Lowe, Mr.
Herring and T. W. McCullough
spoke after dinner. Over 400 Ma
sons were present. ,
of his deep-seated convictions was
that of Lillian's high character and
hbilitjv What a tribute to woman
to whom he had tneted out to much
unhappiness! , , . 1
He was standing with his face to
ward Mr. "Bridgeham," and sudden
ly I taw his eyes lose their medita
tive expression and take on, one of
"Pipe your gentlemn fjnd," he
I turned my head to see that Mr.
'Bridgeham" was palpably edging
away from us down the road. He
would stand still an instant, looking
around with assumed interest at the
trees, then step sideways for a few
.aces, then stand still again.
"Guess I'd better put a little pep
into his movement," Mr. Underwood
The next instant he surprised me
by starting on a run down the road
toward the retreatingMr. "Bridge
ham." He ran wjth a powerful lop
ing movement which would have
brought him up to the other man
in another mifiute. But Mr. "Bridge
ham," for some reason, had evident
ly decided not to linger in the vicin
ity. He increased his edging walk
to a sort of hurried trot, then with
one look backward at Mr. Under
wood's advancing , form he broke
into a frantic run andj disappeared
around a curve in the road.
With a wave ot nis nana io mc,
Mr. UnderwoocTstopped short, wait-.
ed a minute or two, then wanted
leisurely to the curve in the- road,
breaking into a run again just as
he reached it. With an involuntary
smile at his tactics, for I realized
that he meant to convince the flee
ing man of the deadlirfess of his
pursuit, while in reality letting him
get farther and farther away, I
leaned back in the car and closed
my eyes for a minute in an effort
to pull myself together.
' , What Underwood Asked. f
Curiously enough it was not the
appearance of the mysterious Mr.
'Bridgeham," territying as mat was
to me, which had upset me most in
this bizarre experience. It was a
chance remark of Harry Under
wood's, dropped when he had mis
uriderstood the reason for-my ob
jection to calling the police.
"The Dicky-bird isn't playing the
game any too square with you, d n
- I would have liked to convince
myself that he had been talking for
effect, or for some sinister reason
of his own, but there had been
the ring of absolute truth in his
words. What had he meant? I Jor
tured myself with the many angles
of this question until the sound of
Mr. Underwood's firm footsteps on
the road mademe open my eyes and
firmly banish everything from my
mind and save the problem directly
, "Weill" he was grinning broaydly,
evidently delighted as a small boy
with ,the havoc he had created.
"Your gentleman friend is a better
runner than a motor driver, I'll say
that for him. He must be halfway
to town by this time."
- "You didn't follow tym very
wholeheartedly," I smiled.
"If I had, he wouldn't be run.
ning." Mr. Underwood made the
statement not as a ast, but as
the axiom it was. ';
"He'll not trouble you for a while,
he went on confidently, "but event
ually he'll get his courage up to the
sticking point again. But if old Lit
is on the job, and she will be, you
won't need to worry. I know his
kind. They're particularly unpleas
ant rats, but they can be effectually
chased when you know the com
bination. "And now, Lady Fair, suppose wc
resume our journey." I'll stick
around until I get you in sight of
Lil's door, but I want you to do
one thing for pe don't tell her
you've seen me yet awhile. I want
to be able to say 'surprise surprise'
myself when the time , comes."
Welcome Relief from
Tortures of Rheumatism
Come. Only From
Many forms of rheumatism are
caused by millions of tiny germs
that infest the blood, and until the
blood, is absolutely freed of these
germs 4 there is no real relief in
sight. : ''..:.
And because so many people treat
the pain, and not the, disease itself,
is one reason 'why rheumatism in
many cases is a permanent disease,
increasing in severity year by year.
. The most satisfactory remedy for
rheumatism is S. S. S., because it it
one of the most thorough blood puri
fiers known to medical science. This
fine old remedy cleanses the blood
of impurities. Being purely vege
table, without a particle of mineral
or . chemical in its composition, it
works by eliminating and forcing
out of the blood impurities, acting
as a tonic to the entire system at
the same time.
S. .S. S. is sold by druggists
everywhere, and any of them will
tell you that it is a thoroughly hon
est and reliable old remedy.

valuable literature and free advice.
