Dahlman Calls on
Public to Buy the
Red Gross Seals
TMtter word between Mayor Dahlmmi
Und-Commlssloner Hutler on ths one ride
and Police Commloloner Jtyder on the
other, spoken In unconceHled siiser. at
n, meeting of the council marked tli'
most serious breaK that hisr't ... '
In the ordinary unanimity with whtch'the
city commissioners have k'
Tiyder Introduced a resolution demand
ing an Investigation' of alleged "flagrant
and criminal violation of the law In th'
city polle court." and ntked for n rot
naming Thursday. December i. I lie daf
wflen rvltnemes should he subpoenaed
The motion grew out of an Interview
by Councilman nutler. who declared thai
the city ordinances were continually being
broken and that there ought to be n gen
eral Inspector to enfof.ee the laws.
Mayor Dahlman askecf that the vole
Ira the resolution, called for by flydcr.
ne postponed until Commissioner Mr.
Govern was present. Ityder refused nml
called for a second. OommlsMunor With
nell seconded the motion that the Investi
gation be held.
"It's it .Inke," Sn. Ilutlrr.
"It's a Joke resolution, and I see no
reason of Introducing It." hotly declared
"Tou'll find its not a Joke,'' said
"Why don't you be fair?" Mayor Dahl
aian asked, "I want the whole commis
sion here when the vote In taken."
X motion was then made to refer the
resolution to the committee of the whole,
to which Ryder objected. On a vote the
resolution was referred. Ityder and With
nell voting In the negative,
Butler said It was all a Joke and he
didn't expect any resolution to follow
the statements he had made.
S&yor Dahlman said there was nothing
to tha police court scandal and he wn.i
opposed to any Investigation because he
knew just where It would end and tho
city would be given a "black eye."
Colonel Ityder la Anitry.
Persistent refusal of four commissioners
to give the police commissioner an op
portunity to Investigate publicly the scan
daj stories that havo been circulated
about the police court wrought Ityder to
a high pitch of anger.
Wlthnell, Hummel and the police com
missioner are standing for the invcstlga
Jlon and McGovern, Hutler and the
mayor oppose It. Kugcl wavers between
the two factions and his final stand may
decide which of the two factions that
have sprung up may ultimately hold the
balance of power.
At present Kugel la Inclined to stnnd
with the mayor. He said Ryder' resolu
tion was "too comprehensive" and In
cluded departments other than the pollco
department. He said he thought the
mayor ought to be given the power to
call an investigation of the employes
directly under the mayor.
He Will Up Persistent.
Ryder says the commissioners cannot
aucoeed In the method In which they at
tempt to hush up the. scandal rumors. Ho
ivill keep on demanding an Investigation.
The opposition faction on the commission
frequently Insinuates that the police de
partment wuld be hardest hit If an in
vestigation were held,
"I am for anything that will purify tho
the atmosphere." said Hummel, explaining
Ms vote to postpone the resolution until
the commlttea of the whole meets next
Monday. .He will ntand with Ryder and
Wlthnell for an Investigation.
The statement of Hutler to which tho
police commissioner objects Is:
"What wa should have Is a general In
speotor. Whose duty it would bo to look
after ordinances continually being broken.
People are spitting on walks In violation
of the law and right In front of police
men, too. There are ordinances dally
violated, Wo have "plenty of ordinances
and what we need now Is enforcement ot
the laws we have."
In the resolution Ryder points out that
Butler should report such violations to
the proper head of department or some
police officer, Instead of airing It In die
He ask that the police Judge, the
sheriff and his deputies who are con
cerned in the matter and "such other
witnesses whose names may be furnished
by the police dooartment" be subpoenaed
and that the sheriff and tho Hoard ot
Education be -invited to be present by
such counsel as they desire.
Mr. Ryder Insist on holding an inves
tigation every afternoon at S o'clock un
til the whole matter is cleared up. llo
saya there Ik no valid reason why such
an investigation should not be held. Dalit,
roan and Duller are stubbornly opposed
to any probe and McQovern Is wltlj them,
his reason being that the pollco Judge
has not asked' for an Investigation.

Time is Extended
for Cancellation of
Rates to the Gulf
Notwithstanding the protests of the
Chicago Jtnnril of Trade and the Mlnne
apolls Chamber of Commerce Omahi
continues on the map as the thorn In the
side of these two grain markets. The
Interstate Commerce commission 1ms ex
tended the time for cancelling the 16V
cent rate' on 'grain from this city to gulf"
The low grain rate from Omaha to the
gulf was to have been cancelled Decem
ber t and the old rate of 1H cents re
stored, but the railroad freight offices
hero received notice that the low rates
had been continued until December 31.
The result of the continuance of the
HVi-cent rote, railroad men say, will
havo a tendency to movo most of the No-
braska and wtstern Iowa wheat through
Omaha nnd that the shipments, wll' bo
very heavy during all of this month.
