British Firms Are Threatened
With Loss of Supremacy as
Result of Conference in
Washington Next Month.
Action to Prevent Landing of
Wires at Miami Recently
Taken as Result of Requests
Of American Interests.
(hlrugo Tribuue-Omaha Bee 1-caned M ire.
Washington, Aug. 14. Control of
cable telegraph systems, now largely
in the hands of Great Britian, may
be entirely revolutionized and the
way opened for a greater degree of
American activity in this field, as a
result of the international conference
on wireless and cable communication
to bc held here next month. The
British established their control of
the avenues of cable communication
by pioneer enterprises, in layiirg
cables under long-term concessions
granted by a multitude of countries,
which concession's exclude compe
tition. The aim of the iuternational
conference is to establish an inter
national agreement removing the re
straint on competition, defining prop
erty rights in cables and enunciating
the principles of international and
national regulation of cable and
wireless communication.
Pending the deliberations of this
conference the United States gov
ernment recently refused to issue
a permit to the Western Union Tele
graph company to land at-. Miami,
Fla., the American end of the new
cable the Western Telegraph com- j
pany, a British concern, proposes to
lay between the United States and
-the Barbados Bj-iJbuposses5 jpu
in the West Indies. ,
" ' Destroyers Prevent Landing..
To prevent the landing of the
cable without a permit. Secretary
of Navy Daniels rushed five de
stroyers to Miami to intercept a
British cable laying ship. The
destroyers reached the scene of
action and with due ceremony the
American commander went aboard
the British cable layer and com
municated the warning of the Amer
ican government to commit no in
vasion of American soil with the end
of the submarine telegraph wire. But
the cable layer already had re
ceived a wireless message from Sir
Eric Geddes, British ambassador to
the United States, instructing him
to take himself hence pending a
settlement of the question.
In view of the readiness With
which the British ambassador acted
as soon as the matter was brought
to his attention, and in view of the
tolerance with which the Wilson
administration has treated serious
invasions of American sovereignty
that would have justified even more

Circuit Rider Who Sold 'Java'
To Keep Wolf From
Door Comes to
Big Stone Gap, Va.. Auir. 14.
Parson Tolliver Simpson has been a
"circuit rider" in the mountains of
Virginia, West Virginia and Ken
tucky for nigh on to 40 years. Regu
larly, with the phases of the moon,
rarson bimpson on his bony old
nag could be seen winding through
the valleys to the little settlements,
carrying the uospel to the mountain
tolks, administering to their ills, it
such hardy folk were down, and
cariying them supplies from the out
side world.
And so the parson was beloved of
the mountain folk. Hut now the
parson hasn't made a visit to the
folk down in the valleys for several
weeks. His . swallow-tailed coat
and top hat no more are seen bob
bing up and down on his bounc
ing old sorrel. The parson has
found a "bar hole," as the saying
goes, and is staying thar. And
Bud Barrow, who came to town the
other day, went back to his clan
with the information that the parson
had fallen from grace.
It s a queer story.
The parson, it seemed, began to
feel the high cost of living, even
though he always had a bunk and a
meal at any of the mountain cabins
lie visited. But he long had been m
close touch with poverty and in
helping others had no time to help
himself. Then he had the germ
of a great idea.
He would sell coffee.
The Darson made all the little
mountain towns selling coffee, and
only once in a tijonth or so would he
go back to the; mountains to carry
the "truth." '
x Coffee Becomes Popular.
He bought himself a jolt wagon
and though the old sorrel balked, in
dignant at having to pull something,
he went on. Coffee became popular
m the towns outside the lulls and
the parson went farther into the
larger places. The demand for
"iava" became greater and greater.
1 hen the parson came to grief.
, He sold some of the coffee to a
"rcvonoor" one day. The purchaser
found a bottle of white liquid amid
the coffee beans. He tasted: Hoop!
It made him tingle, that moonshine

The Passing Show of 1920
Up to Candidate to Repudiate
O' Justify Waste of Ad
ministration. Chicago, III., Aug- 14. (Special
Telegram). Declaring that Mr. Cox
is seeking to dodge the "wanton
waste" and criminal extravagance"
of the Wilson administration, Chair
man James W. Good of the house
appropriations committee, in charge
of the speakers' bureau at republi
can headquarters herie, said the dem
ocratic candidate would not be al
lowed to evade it.
Not only the Wilson league, but
the "maladministration of finances"
by the democratic party will be is
sues, asserted Mr. Good.
"Neither parties nor men make
political issues," said Mr. Good.
"They but formulate the issues. Un
questionably the league of nations,
as presented by the president, will
continue to be one of big issues in
the campaign, but there are other
issues in the minds of a great many
of our people. The issues of waste
and extravagance of the' Wilson ad
ministration are paramount.
Mr. Cox is attempting to evade
them and the responsibilities of his
party for the mismanagement of
the government's affairs. The peo
ple are feeling the burden of heavy
taxes. They know that during the
last three years they have paid into
the treasury, in taxes and the pur
chase of government bonds, more
than $40,000,000,000.
"Mr. Cox will be called upon,
either to repudiate the wanton waste
and all-around criminal extrava
gance of the Wilson administration
or to explain or to justify it. I re
gard this as one of the big issues of
the campaigu and one that is
troubling Cox and Franklin D.

Put Stern Captain Who Found
Her in First Class Cabin
Pays No Heed to
New York. Aug.- 14. "Oh, please
let me stay on this ship until I reach
the other side, where I can complete
my art studies, and I promise you
I shall reimburse the company for
my passage at the earliest opportun
ity." This pathetic appeal was addressed
by a beautiful, modistly gowned
young woman to the purser of the
ship New Rochelle, bound for Dan
zig, Poland, when the official, mak
ing his customary rounds, collecting
passage tickets and inspecting pass
ports, found her in a first-class cabin
which had not been booked.
Addresses Fictitious.
She was unable to produce either
passport, ticket or money. She gave
her name as Maxine Douglas and
supplied several addresses, all of
which subsequent investigation
proved fictitious.
"All my life I have been passion
ately devoted to art. Miss Douglas
continued, tears starting from her
lustrous eyes, "and I just must get
to Europe and finish my studies so
that I may realize my life's ambi
tion. I have learned all I can over
here. I know I did wrong coming
on this ship as I did without ticket
or money, but I was driven by my
love for art."
Captain Basiux was summoned to
the cabin and listened patiently to
the young woman's plea.
"I am very sorry, mademoiselle,"
he said, '"but I cannot keep you on
my ship."
The vessel was by this time a con
siderable distance beyond Quaran
tine, and the mode of getting rid
of the self-constituted passenger be
came a problem until it was discov
ered that the ship must "lay to" three
or four hours while its compasses
were adjusted.
- Captain Basiux wirelessed New
York for police aid. wMiss Douglas
was taken off the liner and brought
back to the waterfront police sta
tion, where she was set at liberty
after being questioned. She quickly
effected a disappearance.
