In Their Views
Police Chief Not Opposed to
Order; Sheriff Against
"Wrok By Night.'
Though Department of Justice
officials in Omaha and Chief of
Police Dcmpsey have been aware of
the organization of the Ku Klux
Klan in Omaha, no official state
ment has been given out by the
chief regarding its activities.
"I understand it to be an order
i.ica.I uruMi Atriprimni&m." said Chief
Deinpsey, in an interview. "The law
gives them the right to nave secrecy
as well as any other fraternal organ
ization, provided they do not resort
to deeds ot violence.
The police chief said he believes
the Ku Klux Klan will not give
police any cause to interfere in its
Doubtful of Good."
Other officials expressed their
opinions as follows:
United States District Attorney
J. C. Kinsler: "It would seem that
the Ku Klux Klan organization
might not be good; but I wouldnt
care to express an opinion without
more knowledge of the organization s
' aims. Wasn't it the "Birth of a
TNation" motion picture which plo
: tured the work of the Klan during
the reconstruction period? It is an
' organization which we should all be
posted on if we are to keep up- with
Dave Dickinson, agent in charge
United States secret service: i nave
read the constitution of the Ku Klux
.Klan and can find nothing but Amer
icanism in it." - '
Sheriff Mike Clark declared that
he will take a firm stana against any
organization that "does its work by
Against "Night Work."
! "I have read with amazement The
Bee's account of the existence of
the Ku Klux Klan here in our own
state," said the sheriff. "It was a
surprise to me.
"Regarding the Ku Klux Klan, I
am against any organization that
tries to do its work at night when
we are organized in a legal way to
bring about the same result by work
ing in the broad light of day, open
and above board." -
Raymond T. Coffey, chief deputy
county attorney, declared that the
Ku Klux Klan, if it oversteps the
bounds of law, will be prosecuted,
but that as long as it keeps within
the bounds the county attorneys of
fice will let it alone.
- "We . have a legal machinery to
attend to everything and that legal
machinery will carry out the laws
and; prosecute those who break
them," he said. "Wo don't need any
Ku Klux Klan to help us or to give
ui additional work.'

The steamer Anyox, with the

of the survivors, three life boats were
launched. The last one was but a

Alaska, which had listed to starboard,
suddenly righted and then plunged,

George Glenn, who with another
passenger and the captain were the

The steamer Anyox, towing a barge
to Vancouver, was 12 miles distant
when the first "S. O. S." signals of
Uhe Alaska flashed out. .
. Within an hour the Anyox arrived
"at the wreck and with order that won
high praises from the survivors, the
"crew of the Anyox speedily picked up
'those who were drifting in life pre-

" Through the night other ships

Praise was mutually extended be-
tween members, of the crew and pas

Alaska. Despite the ship being en

Commission Is To
Blame For Rates
Secretary of State Railway
Board Explains Discrepancy
Between Union Pacific and
Burlington From Custer.
Lincoln, Aug. 7. (Special.)
John E. Curtiss, secretary of the
state railway commission, absolves
the commission from all responsibil
ity for admittedly lower freight rates
on the Union Pacific from Custer
county points than on the Burling
ton from Custer county and gives
any credit or discredit lor the con
dition to the Interstate Commerce
commission-in a letter to I. A.
Reneau seretary of the Public Service-club,
Broken Bow, Neb.
The Curtis letter is in reply to a
complaint filed by Reneau against the
alleged inequitable rates. Curtiss
says, in part:
"This situation is a result" of an
order issued by the Interstate Com
merce commission, after a hearing
upon complaint of the Kansas City
and St. Joseph markets from Bur
lington points in favor ot the in
trastate rate from these same points
to .the Omaha market. The Union
Pacific, not serving the St. Joseph
and Kansas' City markets, was not a
party to the suit.
. "The Nebraska commission, and
Omaha interests, vigorously pro
tested against the finding of any dis
crimination against interstate traf
fic." However. Curtiss points out that
it was done and that the Nebraska
commission cannot override an In
terstate Commerce commisfion de
cision. Continuing Curtiss says:
"The. Interstate Commerce com
mission' but recently issued an order
reopening the entire matter, but be
foe a hearing could be held before
the body the Nebraska comission
was advised last week that the re
hearing in the matter was discon
tinued and the matter ordered closed.
"The commission is preparing a
vigorous protest' against the closing
of this case, and' is filing a motion
demanding that the matter again be
reopened for further hearing?."

Big Increase In
IIou8eMembers to Begin Work
of Revising Levy Provis
' ions in Fordney Meas
Washington. Aug. 7, Majority
members of the house ways and
means committee expect to get
down to brass tacks on tax revision
Chairman Fordney said today that
the rewriting of levy provisions in
the 1918 law probably would begin
iWnnrtav ant' that unless an unex
pected snag was encountered, the
new bill should be ready in 10 days.
Leaders generally say house consid-
ration will require only a lew aays.
The work before the republican
committeemen is to determine the
ertent of the cuts possible and just
where they are to be made. The
general belief seems to be that the
committee bill will propose repeal of
the excess profits tax, but the ef
fective date remaihs to be de
termined. As a substitute for the excess tax
it is planned to increase the cor
poration income tax from 10 to IS
per cent and also to repeal the $2,
000 exemption allowed corporations.
Chairman Fordney said today, 'how
ever, that it might be necessary to
make some specific ' provisions in
the bill to relieve the burden it has
been claimed this would impose on
the small corporations. ,
May Add Provision.
He also disclosed a proposal to
write into the bill a provision tax
ing the income of the so-called per-
nnsl crrviro i-nrnnra tions. such 3S
architectural firms not incorporated,
the same as the income. 01 otner
corporations. The supreme court
has held that the present law is
not applicable to such concerns.
Mr. Fordney also said it was not
proposed to relieve public service
corporations from a part of the 15
per cent income tax provisions of
the bill. ,
Aside from revision of these levy
sections, the minds of many com
mittee members are turned to a re
peal of the higher income surtaxes,
of all or part of the transportation
taxes and of the ice cream levies.
However, the actual revisions are yet
to be agreed upon with indications
of some fights in the committee.
See Way to Cut Taxes.
It was estimated by some that im
mediate repeal of the whole trans
portation tax, the soda water tax
and the higher surtaxes, together
with the $55,000,000, which the treas
ury experts figure will be lost this
fiscal year through repeal of the ex
cess profits taxes as of January 1,
would approximate the $500,000,000
cut house republican leaders insist
can be made m the tax levy.
With such a reduction, the taxes
to be paid th-'s fiscal year -'ould
approximate $3,070,000,000 on the
basis of treasury estimates presented
to the committee, and would include
$235,000,000 estimated back taxes.
In addition t.0 this.inc6me, the treas
ury figures customs . receipts under
the proposed new tariff law at $370,
000,000 and income from miscellan
eous sources., at about $35O",0OO,O0O,
making a total of $3,790,000,000 as
against an outgo estimated in the
treasury . statement . at $4,554,000,000.
Supporters of the tax cut declare,
however, that the apparent deficit of
$764,000,000. would be . greatly, de
creased through additional collections
in hark taxes, estimated at .orobably
$100,000,000, a larger income from
