U A, WELSH, Local yptecastso m Lower Water Rates Present Status So many inquiries are coming as to the status of my suit to stop the Water board from continuing to oharge its robber tolls that a brief statement is necessary to answer them. Following up The Bee's campaign for lower water rates, I made a tender of my personal bill computed at 25 cents a thousand gallons to exact more than which the board has officially said would be ex tortion and when this tender was refused I procured a restraining order from Judge English forbidding them shutting off my water, as they threatened, until the issue is judicially determined. Evidently afraid to come to a showdown at this time,' the Water board, through its attorneys, consented to let the court order stand, with the effect of a temporary injunction, pending hearing on the merits. I want it distinctly understood that this suit has been brought not only for myself, but for all the water consumers of Omaha, and that if I win out all consumers will enjoy the same benefits of lower rates that I do, if they take the proper precautions. Some want to know how I figured out the amount to be tendered. A cubic foot of water is equivalent to seven and one-half gallons. My bill was for 1,600 feet, so I multiplied by seven and one-half, which gave the number of gallons, and then offered 25 cents for each 1,000 gallons. It is to be assumed that no one will now pay his water bill except under protest as to all in excess of 25 cents per 1,000 gallons. In such case the person paying should insist on having the protest noted on the receipt, if it is desired to recover back the overcharge after the court declares the rate excessive. VICTOR R0SEWATER. FINAL DRAFT OF MONEY BILL Mr. Glass Puts Finishing Touches on Measure. RETIRE NATIONAL BANK NOTES Provision for Additional Reserve Currency in Pnt Back tn the Hill Other Changes Are Made. WASHINGTON, D. C, June 26.-A final revision of kthe administration cur rency bill was made today by Repre sentative Glass. The original provision for the retirement of the present national bank notes and their replacement by the new federal reserve notes, In addition to the 3500,000,000 of reserve notes authorized by the bill, was placed. The provision allowing country banks to deposit a part of their reserves was revised, and the federal regional banks were given the authority to fix the rate of discount, subject to the approval of the federal re serve board. National bank notes now outstanding would be retired within a maximum of twenty years. Additional reserve cur- The reserve provision now .would re quire country" banks to keep 6 per -cent of their reserves In their own vaults and 5 per cent at the regional reserve bank. The other 6 per cent, at a backer's option, might be deposited with the regional bank or go to a correspondent In a cen tral reserve city with the approval of the federal reserve board. Chalman Glass declared no dhange In the provision for the size and appoint ment of the federal reserve bank would be made. - "The board( will consist of sven mem bers to be appointed by the president," heiald," as originally proposed. I don't think the .president would sign a bill with any other provision In It. The fed eral reserve board wl)l remain a gov ernment Institution." High Wind Causes Damage to Crops in Adams County HASTINGS, Neb., June 26. (Special Tel egram.) High wind and hall caused up wards of 340,000 damage to crops and farm buildings In the vicinity of Kene saw and Pro-user last night. The storm broke suddenly about 6 o'clock, snapping all telegraph and telephone communica tion with surrounding places. The dam age Is chiefly confined 'to the destruction of the wheat and oat crops In scattering localities. In Kenesaw a number of barns collapsed, some signs were torn loose and one plate glass store window was shat tered. About a mile of telephone poles cast of Kenesaw were blown down. A score or more, of windmills were over turned. Reports received hcre'lndlcate that the storm caused local damage In a stretch from Gibbon to Grand Island and south ward through Kenesaw. Grass cutters will be used on some of the wheat fields visited by the hailstorm, so that the loss finally may be less than la now estimated. Although the w'lnd reached a high velocity, It was not a tor nado.

UNMERGING CL0SE AT HAND Such is Belief of U. P. Men Regard ing Consolidation, . j SHARE EXCHANGE FAVORABLE Attorney General Likely to Agree to PInn ami Ronds Will Then Re coma Two Separate nnd . Distinct Rnfriirlm Union Pacific people are of the opinion that the complete dissolution of the merger of the Pacific roads Is closo at hand. They feel certain that Attorney General MoReynolds will agree to' the exchange of SoUthen. Pacific for Bal timore St Ohio stock by the Union Pa cific and that the court will approve of the transfer. With this exchange of securities mado, Union Pacific people see no reason why the Southern should not at once let go of the old Central' Pacific, turning over complete control of the property. In the past. Union Paclflo officials have been of the opinion that with 1 tho un merging of the merger tho Central Pa clfla would become a part and parcel of the Union Pacific. Now, however, they have changed their minds. At this time they express the opinion that while a majority of the two roads will be owned by one set of stockholders, they will bo operated as two separate and distinct llr.es, although they will be on friendly terms. Union Pacific men believe that tho Central will have Its own president and full corpr of officers and that the gen eral headquarters will be maintained In San Francisco and that they will not be subservient to the officials of any other part of the Harrlman system of roads.
