MOTOR FUNS INTO WAGON HE IS DRIVING
Man -la C'harae a( Cwr Bays He Was
tnable to Stop ' It Because
of. the Slippery '
' Tracks.
George Chamberlain, 315 Ckss street, 70
years of age, teamster for John Grant of
the Nebraska Bttullthlc company, was
hurled from his wagon, which was struck
by s Farnam car at 8:30 Wednesday morn
ing between Twenty-fourth and' Twenty
fifth streets and seriously cut about the
face, head and arms. Me lies at St. Jo
seph's hospital, attended by Dr. Allison,
who was unable to state exactly the grav
ity of his condition. Incidentally, Dr. Alli
son Is a street railway physician. Hs just
happened along a few seconds after the
occurrence of the accident.- He had the
old gentleman first removed to King's! drug
store. Twenty-fourth and Farnam. Whero
he made a cursory examination of his in
juries, noting -among the others tht his
back was wi tnohed. He' then had him re-,
moved to the hospital. t
The our. No. 147, was in chsrge of George
Elkins, motorman, and L. K. Borensen,
conductor. It was packed with people,
both front and rear ends being Allied, as
well as the Interior. It was coming down
the Farnam street grade at a lively rate of
speed. The old man was crossing' the track
from south to north, entering the aley
between ' Twenty-fourth and TWenty-flfth
streets. The car struck the roar end of
his wagon, from which heavy timbers were
projecting. The force of the collision must
have been great, for the wagon was over
turned and the old man thrown headlong
against the curb, his feet being pinioned
under the front part of the upset wagon.
Fortunately the horses did not run Sway.
Had they, or had they attempted to.
Chamberlain woulV . undoubtedly, have
been killed .outright.
Old Man Holds Fast.
When the cur was brought to a stand
still and passengers and conductor and
motorman ran to the old man he was ly
ing on his face already covered with
blood from the cuts on his head and face,
twiiitlng and turning In a vain effort to
extricate himself from the .wreck,. His
feet were held fast underneath the wagon,
which was a heavy lumber pr brick dray.
The horses, showing that strange clslm
to human Intelligence, Instinctively, as If
aware of their venerable master's peril,
were standing perfectly still, though . ths
wagon to which they were hitched was
upset and the tongue nearly broken off.
The old man was soon- lifted out- and
placed on his ttr
"Now, I'm not dead; let me go to ny
work." he bravy said. ,
Rut he was tt.'un. by his ' rescuers to
King's drug tore and attended - by, Pr.
AlllBon, who chanced to b? on the scene.
From there he was. taken to St, Joseph's
hospital In a police ambulance. .
"My car slipped on the slick rails end I
could not stop It sooner," said Motorman
Elkins. ' "I saw the wagon crossing tt
tracks and did the best I eould to avert
the collslon."
"I did not see the wagon until after the
accident, as I was In the rear of the car,"
said Conductor Sorensen.
Roth men are considered very cautious
carmen and they were, both greitly af
fected by the acclde:. the motorman dis
playing tense nervousness.
"I saw the wagon and thouht the car
would have ample time to step or In some
way avert a collision." said a well known
man about town, who was standing on
the front platform beside the motnrmsn.
but he prefj rred rot to ' hsve his name
mentioned at this time.
Vice President Wattles of the street tr
eoshpT-.y rode down on the ear and we
much affected.
"That la a very Unusual thing to ocour

NEW TOTtK, May 15. A portion of the
recommendations of Attorneys Frank. B.
Hello; snd Charles Severance to the Inter
state Commerce commission concerning the
Harrlmsn railroad investigation has been
published here. It reviews the testimony
snd holds that railroad competition has
been suppressed In an area equal to one
third of the United States: that the con
tracts between the Union Pacific and Rock
Island for the control of the Alton rallwsy,
as well as the contracts between the Union
and Southern Pacific and the control of the
Illinois Central and the San Pedro road are
all In violation of the Sherman Anti-trust
act. It recommends that trie attorney gen
eral Institute proceedings to annul these
agreements. It s!o recommends that there
should be new and effective laws to pte
vent Inflation of securities snd declares that
the profits of the greet railroads of the tsr
west are being used to buy stocks and con
trol systems in the east Instead of building
more roads for the development of the west
an they should be. .
The . Union . Paciflc vss the storm
center of an attack by traders
on the Stock eschange today on the ap
pearance of the report of counsel for the
Interstate Commerce commission. Union
Pacific stock slumped nearly 1 points be
fore support wns forthcoming. Southern
Pacific fell off a point, but steadied with
good buying. All railroads holding stock
control of other linos were sdversely
sffected by- the news, principally Pennsyl
vania, which became weak. After the first
shock had passed the market became
steady at the decline.
Report is Hot Official.
WASHINGTON. May IR The members
of the commission conferred for an hour
this afternoon over the report from New
Tork that the recommendations of Frsnk
D. Kellogg and Charles Severance ' had
been made publio and then authorized the
following statement:
"The commission has not prepared a re
port In the so-called Harrlman ense, nor
has It yet decided any of the questions In
volved In the Inquiry. The' whole matter
Is still under consideration and some phases
of It are being further Investigated. ' .
"It may be that the briefs or memoranda
submitted by counsel have becrfme known
In some quarters and. the mistaken Infer
ence drawn therefrom thnt tho commission
has agreed upon a report."
No further information than is contained
In the statement was authorised.
Chairman Knapp reiterated that the com-"
mission had not reached any conclusion
respecting the case and probably would
not for some time. He declined to indi
cate what might be the conclusions. He
said it was entirely too soon to consider
that phase, as the commission thus far
had given it very little consideration.
- Members of the commission would not ad
mit even that Attorneys Kellogg and Sev
erance had made a report, but It Is known
that Attorney Kellogg has submitted to the
commission an epitome of the facts ad
duced at the hearings and perhaps some
suggestions. No member of the commis
sion would admit that the report published
is. an aocurate resume of that of Mr. Kel
logg. .It is likely .that If the commission
determines that proceedings should be In
stituted sgalnst Harrlman and others, that
all the facts will . be submitted to the De
partment of Justice. It Is scarcely likely
that the commission would suggest what
form of action should be taken by the de
partment. '
Kelloar Denies Report.
CHICAGO, May 15. Frank B. Kellogg,
special attorney for the government In the
Investigation by the Interstite Commerce
commlslon In the affairs of the Harrlman
lines, who Is in Chicago tonight, said:
"That story from New York, outlining
supposed recommendations by me to the
Interstate Commerce commission sounds
like a rehash of my closing remarks In the
case of April 4. Then I suggested Icglf
latlon to correct certain evils relative to
the community of Interests. A copy of
my address was returned to me for the
customary corrections and the corrected
copy was forwarded to Washington a week
ago. I have made no stptement to r.nyone
regarding this case and don't Intend to." '
NEWELL SECURES PROMOTION

WASHINGTON, May 15. (Specials-Secretary
Garfield has designated F. H.
Newelt, the director of the reclamation
service, as the consulting engineer of the
geological survey. This Is in recognition
of Mr. Neweirs long cervices In building
up the engineering work of that bureau, as
it pertains to the measurement of streams
snd the determination of the water supply.
This work was Initiated by Mm In IkSa and
carried on under his direction. It has
graduatty expanded from a few simple
meaaurements Into a syntem covering the
greater part of the United States.
As a reoult a large smount of data hat
been brcught together, covering the be
havior of streams In different parts of the
country end affording material upon which
to base substantial development. The Im
portance of these Investigations will be
readily appreciated when It Is known that
during recent yeans from n.000.000 to tt.OtO,-
i 000 per annum has been expended In water
powers and other works which would pot
have been Inveeted If it were not for the
existence of the data which has been pro
cured by the geological survey. These rec
ords of river flow snd fluctuations In high
and, .low water seasons extend through a
number, of year's and are absolutely essen
tial to the engineer and Investor In plan
ning Important works for stream utilisa
tion.' It Is' pre posed by the geological survey
that th's work shall be continued and' still
further "expanded In various lines, snd to
assist in this Mr. Newell has been desig
nated,, as stated above, as the consulting
engineer cf the survey.

has universally beo that electricity as a

This being fTie esse," the friends of the

did pass a Mil requirtrwc It last winter, hut
It Was killed In tho ennferrnce on the post

ground that the department already has
the power to require railroads to So equip
their cars. There are those who believe
the department will hesitate to exercise
thin authority, except tinder express au
thority of congreas, , and thst this must
be obtained before electrical equipment can
be Installed.
Statistics show thst more mall Is de

Following the editorial suggestion of The
Bee, the county commissioners will take
steps st once to recover from Sheriff Mc
Donald snd his predecessors the smount
due the county for keeping Sarpy county
and government prisoners In the county
Jail. Sheriff McDonald last year received
tl a day from Sarpy county and U cents
a day from the United Btates government
for the maintenance of these prisoners. Ths
commissioners, according to statements
msde yesterday, will demand that he re
fund to the county the difference between
thee amounts and 39 cents a day, the
amount allowed him by the county for
boarding .Douglas county prisoners.
Commlneloner Kennard. who Is chairman
of ths court house and Jail committee of
the board, declared he was In favor of
taking action at once. Solomon, at whose
Suggestion the investigation by the county
auditor was mads, Is In favor of It. Ths
remaining commissioners, it Is . believed,
will favor the move. The amount due the
county on the above . basis for the lsst
year, sceordlng to the figures of Commis
sioner Solomon, Is 11.087.19. For some of
the previous years the amount will be a
little more than this.
"I am In favor of deducting this amount
from the sheriff's hill for feeding prison
ers," declared Commissioner Kennard yes
terday afternoon. "I believe this money Is
rightfully due the county and I see no
reason why we should not deduct it. If
the sheriff wants to carry the matter Into
ths courts It would be up- to him then to
do It snd not to- the county."
"" How Investigation Started. '
In connection with "the report the man
ner In which the Investigation was started
Is lntereftlng. Last tall when the grand
jurV was In session the three commission
ers from Sarpy county happened to' be In
Omaha to meet with the Douglas 'county
board to dlscusi a border road. More as a
Joke than anything else some of the Doug
Ins county members had them subpoenaed
to appear before the grand Jury which was
then Investigating the' Jail feeding-question.
It was brought out at ths hearing
that the Sarpy county prisoners were kept
In the Douglas county Jail,' a fact which
was new to -the Douglas county commis
sioners. . Mr. Solomon at once Introduced
a resolution at the next meeting of , the
board to have the. county auditor make an
Investigation to find out how much the
sheriff had been paid by Barpy county.
The government business was Included In
the scope of the Investigation,. It Is now
proposed to carry the record back for sev
eral years.
In case the practice of keeping foreign
prisoners In the Jail Is continued the move
of the commissioners will Increase the rev
enues of the county about $1,000 a year.
If it Is not kept up It will relieve the Jail,
which Is now overcrowded,, of several pris
oners. BURKE WILL JLEAD GUILTY
