"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 . , . .

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
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.
Ranren of West We Campaign for
Treatment by Railroada.
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
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
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."

Johns, the hotel employes said, had been

and this, they believe', was the cause of
the man losing hi mind. On th arrival

approach him for . fear , ha might harm

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

assembled strangers ' In their pajamas.
