day that thlsi rate was the most satis
factory that had ever been granted by
the Trans-Continental Passenger asso

Is was made is exceedingly encouraging

PETER POWER AGAIN.
Famous Myth in Securities Case
NEW YORK, Aug. 2C Charges by
the Bar association against George Al
fred Lamb, who was attorney in the
Peter Power proceedings against the
Northern Pacific Jtallroad company,
were sustained today by George B. Ab
bott, a referee, to whom the matter had
been referred. The referee's report has
been filed with the appellate division
of the Supremo court. Referring to the
Northern Pacific stock alleged to have
been the property of Power, the ref
"The certificate was never assigned
to Peter Power, so far as anything
appears on its face, nor was It ever de
livered to him. It does not appear that
any consideration for any stock of
said corporation ever passed from
Power to Lamb, to Wejdenfeld or any
body else. The whole proceedings to
my mind savors of fraud, deceit and
The referee summarized the testi
mony at considerable length and
reached this concluslpn:
"I think the conclusion can hardly be
established that such action and con
duct on the part of a duly practicing at
torney was gross unprofessional con-
,i.,f nml mnlnrno.tleo. which wns hltrhlv
reprehensible and more calculated to
defeat than to further the ends of jus
tice." The appellate division, which will
pass upon the referee's report, will not
resume lis regular sessions until Octo

among local Jobbers in those commodl-'
ties. The rate does not provide a pro
portionate cut from Omaha to the
West and permits Chicago and Dee
Moines houses to ship to Omaha terri
tory cheaper than the local men. Vig
orous protest is being made to the
roads running west and they arc being
besieged with demands for a propor

GIRL LEAPS TO DEATH,
Falls One Hundred Feet From Bridge
CLEVELAND, O., Aug. 26. A leap
from Central viaduct ended the life of
an unidentified girl. For half an hour
before she Jumped the girl had been
standing on the bridge, walking back
and forth along the rail at the north
end. She seemed about 20 years old.
Brldgekeeper Kllbaln was startled to
see the girl trying to crawl through tho
railing. He shouted to her and she
doubled her efforts to slip through. Her
dress caught In the railing, but she tore
it loose and got outside. Otto Law
rence, a young man. ran toward her.
Clinging to the rail on the outside, with
her feet on the projecting edge of the
bridge, she was edging out, evidently
trying to get to a point above the river.
As Lawrence reached out to solze her
she released her hold on the rail and
plunged backward and down. The
bridge Is 100 feet high at that point She
struck an iron bur, turned over several
times and dropped Into shallow water,
close to an abutment
Workmen who saw her plunge pulled
her out. She was still conscious and
efforts were made to learn her name,
but she made no answer.
She was taken to Charity hospital
and died on the operating table. Noth
ing to identify tho girl was found.

Will Breed. Martins and Swallows for
Purpose of Exterminating
ROXBURY, N. Y., Aug. 26. Active
steps are being taken under the per
sonal direction of Miss Helen Gould to
make her estate here a paradise for
birds. Under the supervision of Col.
Isaac W. Brown of Colorado more than
100 nests are being built as an invita
tion to bluebirds, swallows, robins and
martins to make their homes on the
grounds. Though Miss Gould's great in
terest In natural history .is responsible
in a measure for her new departure,
there Is a further object In the experiment
uoi. .tsrown lias a wiue repuiauon as
"tho bird and bug man," and it is one
of the first principles of the. doctrine he
preaches that every bug has its na
tural foe in some bird, and that to ex
terminate the bug it Is only necessary
to have the proper bird on hand. The
dreaded potato bug and the Hessian
fly, he says, practically have been ex
terminated by redblrds and quail. By
encouraging the breeding of the purple
martin and the swallow the Colonel
alms at nothing less .than the extermi
nation of the mosquito.
Deep Interest in His Work.
Mi,fl Gould Is an acknowledged con
vert to the Colonel's cause. That she- is
interested In natural history has been
kno,wn, and recently she lias been fol
lowing the work of CoL Brown with
great Interest She asked him to visit
'her In her country home here, and he
has been her guest for several days.
He has found Miss Gould an eager pu
pil In bird culture. She ha9 taken him
all over her estate, and together they
have chosen the, best locations for the
different- cotes and nesting places that
it has been decided to establish.
Col. Brown has won Miss Gould and
her guests over to the belief that the
first step to betaken in the war against
the mosquito Is a campaign against the
so-called English sparrow. This bird,
which, he says, in reality Is a native of
Russia, practically has exterminated
the purple martin and swallow, and, as
these birds were the most aggressive
enemies of the mosquito, their absenco
Is responsible largely for the growth
of the pest If the Colonel had his way,
a bounty would be placed on sparrows,
since not only the martin and swal
lows have been driven out by them, but
quail, doves and redblrds also are on
Finds Proof in tho West.
He cites experiments made recently in
Indiana, where quail have been bred
systematically for the last few years,
with a marked diminution In the num
bers of the Hessian fly and a corre
sponding Improvement in the wheat
As for the swallows and the mos
quitoes, he says that at the encamp
ment on Winona lake. In Indiana, three
years ago folk practically were driven
out by the mosquitoes. The next year
dovecotes were built for martins and
swallows, with the result that this year
the campers have not been molested at
all by mosquitoes.
The use of oil, he says, Is nonsensical,
and never will have any lasting effect

Secretary in Speech at Montpclior
MONTFELIER, Vt, Aug. 26. Secre
tary of War Taft addressed a Repub
lican rally In Armory hall here this af
tornoon. Secretary Taft briefly re
viewed the Issues and history of the
parties and discussed the platforms of
both parties. In a review of the ad
ministration of President Roosevelt, to
which the greater portion of the speech
was devoted, Secretary Taft eulogized
the President highly, saying:
"He is not a tyrant, but ho Is a lead
er. He does believe In a strenuous life.
He doe3' believe In doing things. He be
lieves that a man who Is given brain
and muscle Is charged with the respon
sibility of making the most of them and
of doing as much with both as possible
for his fellow men. He represents as
high a type as there Is in the country
of energetic American manhood.
"No man ever sat in the Presidential
chair more anxious to avoid war or con
flict with foreign nations than he. His
impulsiveness of manner and his
quickness of thought and speech co
exist with n. real conservatism of ac
tion that makes It as certain as It was
under Mr. McKlnloy, that no policy will
be followed noedlcssly exposing the in
