"The Ana of Thomas Jefferson," edited by Franklin B- Sawvel (Th Bound Table Press), la a, rork unique In the year and one which, more than any other book pos Ibly could, throws light upon the charac ter and thoughts of the man credited with framing the declaration of Independence. The work Is a compilation of notes made by Mr. Jefferson on his personal experi ence from 1791 to 1809. It Is not a diary nor a biography but notes of conversa tions and conferences made by the states man to reinforce his memory, which he found could not be relied upon at all times. In these notes he speaks of war and events In the most free manner and by so doing throws side lights. upon himself and associates which are valuable to a person Interested in the early history of the republic . , . .

This book Is volume XIII In "Studies In History, Eco nomics and Public Law," edited by the faculty of political science of Columbia university. The author in his preface says "The first few pages of this book seem very pessimistic, but in truth the author's view Is a broadly optlmlstio one Crime Is lh large part social product. In creasing because1 of this growth. An Increase' Of crime, however, does not mean necessnrtly an Increase of anti-social conduct. " "Romance," a novel by Joseph Conrad and F. M. Hueffner (McClure. Phillips ft company), tells of the experiences of an English youth who in a 'spirit of adven ture goes, under a cloud, to the West In dies when they are under the absolute control of Spain.

The Scott-Thaw company has published a new novel by William Bags, entitled "Frenchy the Story of a Gentleman." Mr. Bage was well known to the reading public by , his successes with his previous novels, "Robert Tournay" and "The Claybournea." His latest work is the story of a French gentleman of noble birth, the Marquis da Bt. Hllalre, who, by his chivalry and' self sacrificing nature, finds hi place In Amer ica among It. best citizens. He give up hi fortune to save the honor of a friend, and thus Impoverished leaves Paris for America, assuming his family name with out the title.

WARREN GIVES HIS POSITION President ef Nebraska Bltwllthla Com. liar Talks on patvlaaj Speci fication Controversy. BOSTON, Aug. 17, 1904. To the Editor of The Bee: My attention hns been called to an article In The Bee, under date of Au gust 17, which puts City Attorney Wright In the position of quoting me aa follows: Mr. Warren said, "Tou are absolutely right." He said, "No man can bid under these specifications unless he has the Board of Publio Works with him." It Is a fact, as Mr. Wright states, that he called on mo at my Boston office. At a previous vlflt to Omaha I had urged him to do so for the purpose of Investigating the bltullthlo pavement and going over the specifications with him. In view of the fact that I wa very busy at the time, and we -did not have as much opportunity to go Into the details as either Mr. Wright or myself desired, I think It Is fair' to say that I did not make the statement at tributed to me in the words In which I am quoted, but In effect I made the following statement, and Mr. Wright must acknowl edge that I did not say that he was right In his past contentions with the board. I did state and Insist that the specifications which he advocated, those submitted by the city engineer, were the most Illegal and unjust specifications which I had ever read; they specified nothing definitely In the way of bituminous material and were absolutely ' Illegal. I acknowledged that some of the clauses- In the specifications adopted by the board were ambiguous, but hot nearly as ambiguous as the speclflcau tlops which the board rejected and as recommended by the city engineer. I pointed out. In detail, that the specifications for bituminous concrete paving, which were submitted by the city engineer, and which were drawn for the purpose of evading the patents of Warren Brothers company on the bltullthlc pavement, were Illegal and the worst specifications which I had ever read. In building from the general form of specifications which has previously been in vogue In the city of Omaha, and all of which specifications contain certain clauses, which, I believe, are contrary to law. In that they delegate to the city engineer authority which should. never exist In any person, I believe that the board has over stepped Itself and placed In the discretion of the board matters which should be specified in detail, but in the specifications .or asphalt paving adopted by the board they have not gone to the extreme1, and the specifications can- be m6re easily Jus-tlfled- than the specifications which- were submitted by the city engineer. I mad the general statement. In effect, that.jio specification for asphalt' caving In tha .city of Omaha werey in my judg. ment, strictly legal, and that 'the 'reason for their Illegality waa that they delegated to the board certain" matters which should be determined In .advance.- The specifica tions specified nothing as definitely As they should, and I said that there hod never been specifications adopted by the city of Omaha, In my experience during Ihe last ten years, under which . any responsible contractor could afford to bid, unless he felt that the Board of Publio Works, and especially the engineer, were his friends, and It had been my personal policy,, in view of the fact that the engineer was un friendly, that with such specifications a contractor could not afford to bid on asphalt paying. I can hardly conceive that Mr. Wright Intended to put me In the position of criti cising the present specifications 4,t the Board of Public Works as compared with other specifications which they have had before them for consideration, for I was very emphatle In the Opinion that the pres ent specifications, a adopted by the Board of Publio Works, were more nearly legal than any specification which had been in stigated by any other Sources. My principal objection to th Rose water specifications were that they permit good And worthless asphalts to compete against . each other. ' They permit experi enced and inexperienced contractors to bid on the same basis, and they delegate to the engineer or the board the power to dis criminate after the bids are In as to whether a material 1s suitable or not. The law contemplate that specifications shall be so specifically In detail before bids are asked that they specify the class of work to be done and specify only good materials. Take the Rosewater specificationsfor bitu minous concrete paving. They are no more speclflo than a specification would be for a houae which said that it should be forty feet in dimension. Every bituminous ma terial, whether coal tar, oil, asphalt, ma terial made from sulphur and oil or other wise can be used, it is no more a specfica tion for a particular thing than a specifica tion for a pavement whloh apeclfled brick, wood, dlrt. and clay. Any material of a bituminous nature which Is known to be good, bad pr worthless would come within the limits of the specification. The power delegates to the board to determine after bids are tn what they will use and such a specification would be absolutely Illegal and a property owner could successfully contest the assessment. There is no more legal right for specifying asphalt tn com petition with coal tar under a given specifi cation than there is for specifying brick In competition with wopd. Every point In tha present Omaha specifications which could possibly be declared Illegal Is among those which have been copied from the Roaea)atar specifications. The city engineer of Omaha naturally Is Inclined to set him self up aa an expert and assume the right to pas on all technical matters for the board, and In effect that Rosewater specifi cation ar Inclined to delegate to the city engineer arbitrary functlona which ahould be denied anyone after the bids are In. I do not believe the Rosewater specifications could possibly stand the attack of a prop erty owner's suit, If experts were put on th stand to prove the truth. I have explained this view of the matter to Mr. Rosewater In person, end while I have no reason to question anyone's motive In the matter, I feel that prejudice la largely responsible for the conditions which exltt. The city attorney apparently agreed with me In the proposition that the speclfl. cations of the city engineer were Indefinite and Illegal and I cannot believe that he quotes me as criticising the legaltty,of the specifications of th Board of Publio Works to the same extent thst I criticised the legality of the specifications recommended by the city engineer. FRED J. WARREN. STOCKMEN F1GI1I FOR RIGHTS Ranren of West We Campaign for Treatment by Railroada. RATES RISE AS COST OF HAULING FALLS Freak Barrr. Secretary of later state Commerce. Uw Coaveatloa. Talk of Evils WfeJek Ar to Be Corrected. A strong campaign Is being wsged by the cattlemen of the western states to secure a correction of wrongs which they claim have been sufTeted at the hands of tha rail roads for several, years tn spits of the efforts which have been put forth by those' Interested in th various branches of this Industry. One of the evils complained of is In the matter of the Increasing and ex cessive cost of transportation. Among the other troubles complained of I faulty scrv Ice, lack of shipping facilities and general negligence, To correct the, first named fault a bill now Is before congress. Frank Barry, secretsry of the Interstate commerce law convention, was In Omaha yesterday In the interest of this question. He said: "One of the things that the live stock people are seeking to accomplish Is to amend th interestate commerce laws so they will have the force originally Intended. As the law now exists the Interstate Com merce commission is practically powerless to do anything. The original law wa strong enough, but it has been weakened from time to time a the result of court decisions which have made Its provision inoperative. One of the bad feature of the law a It exisU on the statute book today 1 that It give the commission the right to prohibit an unjust rate, but robs it of the power to ay what the rate shall be. Only Concreaa Can Herniate. "Only congreea has the right to regulate these rates and It does so through this com mission, which makes Its investigation and reports to the legislature. "The discrimination against the shippers of live stock has been more unfair than with the other shippers. Appeals are made to the railroads, but the jellef obtained is only temporary, while- the conditions hate been growing . constantly worse, but the present law Is futll against the abuses. The prosperity and growth of the railroads are essentially the country's welfare and the interest of shipper and carrier are too intimately related for one to seek the In Jury of the other. The shipper, however, ha inalienable right which he must pro tect and encroachments upon those right must be restrained by the federal govern ment, i "One of the most significant facts brought out by the Interstate Commerce commis sion in Its annual report for 1908 Is the steady advance In the cost of transportation by rail. There is today no way these ad vances can be stopped. Rates Rise and Cost of Healing Falls. "While rates are Increasing the cost or transportation Is constantly, decreasing. Grades and curves ar being reduced and facilities of carrying, are Improved. . An engine today hauls double the weight It did fifteen years ago, without a corresponding Increase in the cost of operating the train. "The net earnings of the last fifteen years have Increased M per cent. "In sending his cattle to market the shipper has no voice .In the matter. There Is no bargain. The company fixes the rate. It gets its share of the proceeds first, and always in cash. The fact that the lines fight for this traffic looks aa - If it must be' prqfltable. Take the rate from Winnehiuccts ' NeV;; to, Omaha,' of 1180 per standard car. The Bouthern Pa cific deducts 162.86 to Ogden. The Denver &. Rio Grande gets $62.70 : on the 779-mile haul from Ogden to Denver and the line east of Denver 'gets the rest, $36.43 on the' haul to Omaha or Kansas City. That makes the local rate from Intermediate points west of Denver, such as Grand Junction to' Pu eblo, of $70 per car seem exorbitant, and the shipper naturally thinks some one is being 'held up,' for the ' Rio Grande makes the haul at the rate of 7.8 cents per car mile, while the Grand Junction to Pueblo shipment Is at the rate of 23.1 cents per mile. Say Rebate Are Paid. "The fact is indisputable that rebates have been paid by the lines east of Ogden from their proportion of such rates a the Wlnnemucca to Omaha rate. "Wherever-' combinations have "teen formed by the railroads by agreement upon certain rates for certain territories It has been held that the combination formed by making an agreement on rates was to insure reasonable tariffs, but tha courts have ruled that It destroyed com petition and that the agreements were un lawful. "The pressure which has been brought to bear upon the legislature for the prompt enactment of needed legislation to correct the evils of exorbitant rates from which the public in all section of th country 1 suffering Is tremendous and the sentiment In favor of the enactment of protective law Is growing." AFTtRMATH STIRS; SLEEPERS Gaest with Handover- Raise Other Ocewpawts and Police Force v with HI Yells. The occupants of the Paxton hotel an nex were aroused .from their slumbers at 3:10 a. m. Tuesday by a series of the most unearthly , howls that ever disturbed the sweet .dream of early dawn. Rushing pell-mell from their beds, they found Ed ward Arthur Johns of Pittsburg, Pa., on the landing of the fourth floor, yelling to the saints to save him from being killed. Johns, the hotel employes said, had been drinking hard since his arrival at the hotel, and this, they believe', was the cause of the man losing hi mind. On th arrival of the police com highly excited men, clad In their pight shirts, were found around Johns, standing near him for fear ha would harm himself, but who dared not approach him for . fear , ha might harm them. One fat man In a very small night, gown skipped about with an ugly looking 44-callber revolver and the others were constantly doglng about so as to get out of the way of the. gun tn case the fat man pulled the trigger. Johns was trying to get a long, lean man to open a tin of tooth powder, telling him there was pur gold inside. But from the look on the long man' face he would not have opened that tin If the treasure' of King Solo mon' mine were to be had by so doing. When the police got hold of him John wanted to pray and earnestly desire a reporter, whom he took for a minister, to read the second chapter of Genesis to the assembled strangers ' In their pajamas. Johns refused to put on hi clothe untlj this had been done, and as the reporter steadfastly objected to "scabbing" on a minister, th demented man was bundled Into the patrol wagon wrapped up In a sheet. The climax of the whole . performance was when the patrol wagon wa noartng th police atatlon and passed a man who was meandering borne with unateady gait. Aa It pased him John suddenly Jumped straight up and let out another war whoop. The effect on the man with the unsteady legs was Instantaneous. II just dropped with a flop to the sidewalk. John la being detain ed at th police station until his relative at Pittsburg shall hav been hard frou. It ha been learned that his mother reside at $441 Boquet ave nue and tk brother at 43$ Smlthfleld street. Pittsburg. When further questioned, he gave his occupation as that of a "boose fighter and a winner of the fair sex. M'VANN MAY SEE MILLER Goes to Chicago Poeeibly Will Take t FmI Rat Matter Agala.
