Tho Independent Telephone company lias
for iom day been requesting the South
Omaha city council to release Ha bond and
thus validate the franchise of the com
pany. 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.
The work of laying the conduits has

"Your Humble Servant" Is a cleverly con
structed comedy dealing with the adven
tures of one Lafayette Towers, an actor,
and his ambition to train his ward tor a
leading place on the stage and secure that
place for her. 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. Brldeau was a
roystering, blustering soldier of France;
Towers a trusting, hopeful, unspoiled man,
an actor who might dream but not quite

WASHINGTON. May 26. (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.
Senator Dolllver's committee on agri
culture and forestry reported favorably to
day Senator Burkett's bill establishing the
Morton Institution of agriculture and for
estry, as a tribute to the late J. Sterling
Morton, former secretary of agriculture.
This bill carries an appropriation of $100,000
and provides that tho Institution shall be
locatud at Nebraska City, Neb.
The forestry department at the Univer

WASHINGTON;' May 26. 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.

Suspended Folioe Chief of Cleveland
Says He Will Tell on Promi

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
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

' ST. LOUIS, May 26. Electrical experts
attending the National Electrlo Light as

surprise tonight regarding the statement
of Prof. Robert A. Mllllken of the Un!

studied a single Ion of electricity.
The standing of the professor Is such,
however, that most of them credit his
discovery." 8. E. Doane of Cleveland an
expert on electricity said:
"I cannot aee that the discovery of the
Ion will have any effect on the use of
electricity. If the ion Is discovered. It
means a mathematical demonstration of
what electricity Is. We cannot figure how
