The company under the terma of the contract had until May 23 to got its ex change built and have Its llnea In oper ation. There were twenty-five telephones in operation on that date and by that fact the company maintained that It had fulfilled the contract and asked the re lease of tho bonds. This bond was given two years ago when tha company applied for a franchise, and H "was to assure tho completion of the p. ant within two years. The South Omaha council at Its meeting Monday night refused to release the bond on the ground that the conduits of the company were Incomplete and the exchange building waa not yet finished. It is not likely that the council will make any fight on the franchise as there is no desire to Injure the company. The bond will prob ably be released as soon as the conduit system Is completed.

It is In some ways a glimpse at stage life from the inside, and it is made most entertaining by the efforts of capable actors who play each part with loving care. Lafayette Towers resembles Philip Brl dcau only In the point that each character la humanly possible.

(Special Tele gramsSenator Gamble of South Dakota believes that his duty Is In Washington and not In South Dakota at this time not withstanding the primary campaign Is on. He raid today that he was ln favor and be lieved that pledges made ln the national republican platform should be redeemed and that he was going to stay In Washing ton to make possible legislation promised before the adjournment of the present ses sion. He mentioned as legislation to ful fill party pledges, railway regulation; postal savings bank; regulating Issuance of injunctions; statehood for Arlsona and New Mexico; the bill relating to conservation of natural resources and an appropriation of 250.000 to enable the president to secure full Information In regard to the cost and production of all articles affected by the customs laws of the United States. In regard to the primary campaign now on ln his state, which will terminate on June 7, Senator Gamble said: "I have kept ln close touch with political conditions In South Dakota during the progress of the primary campaign. I feel that Governor Vessey haa given the state a most capable, clean and buslnees-llke administration and that he deserves, and Is entitled to the endorsement of a renoml natlon and re-election by republicans of the state. The candidates on the ticket with him are alike entitled to the same support as the governor. "The wise and advanced legislation en acted during Governor Vessey's as well as Governor Crawford's administrations iflerlts the confidence of the party and Justifies the claims of the state administra tion and its friends for the continuance of that confidence it has had of a majority of the party for the last four years. All platform pledges- have been faithfully kept. Along all lines of administrative activities there has been exercised Intelligence inte grity and a high degree of efficiency." Bill Favored.

The caucus of the republican members of the house of representatives on the, subject of the postal savings bank blll..gan last night in the cnamber ox the houqoy i It was soon appar ent that no agreement could be reached at the first session and it waa predicted that the caupua would extend over two or three nights. , Practically all of the changes considered in the bill tonight related to phraseology. None of them touched upon the contro versial matters connected with the dispo sition of deposits.- The caucus will be re sumed tomorrow evening. The total num ber of republican members who answered to their names at tonight's session was 144, out of a total republican membership of 217. Among the absentees were both 'regulars" and "insurgents," but It was claimed that a majority of those not pres ent had promised their support to the caucus measure so ' that the republicans would be assured of a sufficient vote on the floor of the house to pass the bill. Dnlght Hopefnl. 'There is no doubt that we will have enough votes to pass the bl.l the caucus will agree upon," said Representative John Dwlght of New York, the republican whip. He based his statement' on the fact that the temper of those who attended the cau cus was an indication of harmony. . It is known, however, that a dozen or more "Insurgent" members, many of whom refused to sign the call for the caucus, may not subscribe to the caucus actions. It has been suggested that some of those who attended the caucus may ab sent themselves on the final vote In case the bill does not suit them. The "insurgent" members absent were Representatives Cooper, Lenroot, Nelson and Carey of Wisconsin, Davis, Llndberg and Vllstead of Minnesota, Norrls and Hlnshaw of Nebraska, Hubbard and Woods of Iowa,, Polndexter of Washington, Fowler of New Jersey and Gronnk of North Da kota. ! Some of these members, it was stated by leaders of the "regulars," had announced that they were prepared to vote for postal savings bill and that the "regulars" were counting un their support. When the caucus convened tonight the bill introduced by Representative Gardener was taken a a basis on which to make caucus measure. Chairman Weeks explained to the caucus that the bill was no one-niun'a bill, but was the result of the careful work and thought of many members. He was fol lowed by Representative Gardener In a half-hour's speech explaining the provisions of his bill. His explanation was sa'd to have proven satisfactory to a great many members of the caucus and to have done much toward paving the way for an amic able agreement. The bill was then taken up and read sec tion by section. Many amendments were offered and accepted, but all of them in volved only changes of phraseology. It was not expected that any great amount of trouble would be encountered until section was reached, which section relates to depositing postal savings funds and their final disposition. Upon this sec tion it wai expected that a haid fight would occur, owing to the great number of mem bers who believe that postal savings should be kept, in large part. In the communities In which they are deposited. Many believed that the 47V per cent prescribed by the committee bill should be Increased to 75 per cent at least. Almost innumerable amendments are ready to be offered on the bill. Representa tive Madden of Illinois, it Is stated, has twenty-two separate amendments which he desires to submit and many other members have almost an equally large number. "Golden Rule" Kohler Turns Upon His Foes Suspended Folioe Chief of Cleveland Says He Will Tell on Promi nent Men. CLEVELAND, O., May 2d Chief of Po lice Frederick Kohler, known throughout the country as the "Golden Rule" chief, waa suspended today by Mayor Baehr on charges of gross immorality, habitual drunkenness and disobedience of orders. The tentative date of Tuesday haa been set for. Chief Kohler' s trial by the Civil Service commission and statement by Kohler and his- accusers today point to the development of sensational testimony which may involve many of the city's prominent men. Mr. Kohler has Intimated that he In tends to fight the charges against him to a finish and that If he Is disgraced he will not be the only one to fall. Among the chargea brought against Kohler is one that during the seven years he has been at the head of the police department he has utilized the detective force for the collec tion of facts concerning prominent offi cials and others to be used ln the event that he was attacked. The present charges are the culmination of a long series of attacks against the po lice chief. Afer he had been Informed of his suspension today Mr. Kohler ex claimed:' "These- charges are the work of the character snatchers, grave robbers and blackmailers who have been after me for years." Chief Kohler joined the police force as a patrolman fourteen years ago. Under Mayor Tom Johnson his rise was rapid. He was appointed chief In 190$ and since then has attracted national attention by his policy of the "Golden Rule." Briefly, this policy was that in the case of minor offenses, such as Intoxication or disorderly conduct, it was better to admonish the offender and persuade him to go home than to arrest him. His opponents have accused him of having Increased criminality by this policy. Electrical Ion Causes Surprise Discovery by Chicago Professor In cites Cariosity Among Light Experts. ' ST.
