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.

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. Crossing the Little

Attorney General Likely to Agree to

coma Two Separate nnd

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.
