WILL TAKE UP THE COAL RATES Upon llln Iletnrn to Oninlm Com mercial Club Worker Will Seek to Stop Higher Tariffs on Anthracite from Ilnst. It Is likely that B. J. McVann, manager of the traffic bureau of the Omaha Com mercial club, will not return to Omatia until the middle of June. For the last few weeks he has been In tho south fight ing an Important coal rate case for i southern mining company that retained him on account of his thorough under standing of rate complications, and his wide experience In fighting for reduced freight rates before the Interstate Com merce commission and tho state railway commissions. As soon as tho coal case can possibly be closed, he will have to rush to St. Louis, unless there should be a post ponement of the southern lumber rate case that Is to come before the Inter state Commerce commission at St. Louis June 1, Mr. McVann Is to conduct the case there for tho various lumber com panies and manufacturles of Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and the northwest. all of which territory Is seeking to pre vent the new increased schedule of freight rates from going into operation as the railroads have announced It. This case will probably hold the attention of Mr MoVann and the others engaged In the fight for a few weeks, at least. No less than a dozen Omaha manufacturers and lumber dealers are to go to St. Louis to testify In the case. Want, nnte naliied. Now that the Interstate Commerce commission has complied with the re quest of the Omahi Commercial club in suspending the new Increased freight rate on Pennsylvania hard coal to west ern po'nts, it Is likely that Mr. MoVann will find this case waiting for him '.hi moment ho arrives In Omaha, whenever that may be. The proposed increase was of 25 cents per ton -on all hard coal to the western territory. The Commercial club telegraphed the Interstate Com merce commission a week ago protest ing against allowing the new tariff to go Into operation, alleging It was exces sive and worked an Injustice and a hard ship on the consumers of the whole west. It will be the task of McVann to make up the case and to lead the fight when the date for the hearing on this matter shall be finally set. Investigate Will the local bar association "in vestieate" the charges of attempted subornation of perjury made by Ed gar Howard, which, if true, should start disbarment proceedings against someone? The charges are quite specific enough to facilitate cheoking them up. Judge Howard's informant was asked to commit perjury by lawyers representing an Omaha saloon keeper arrested a few weeks ago for selling liquor at 10 o'clock at night. Police court records must show names, dates and hours of all such arrests and disposition of this case. With the particular case once lo cated it should not be hard to ascer tain the lawyers in it. Here is another chance for the bar investigators to show how far they are on the square; whether they really want to go after crooked lawyers or merely after laymen who expose the crookedness.

Tha kids took the donkey out for an evening airing and immediately every boy and girl In the vicinity followed around the mule. The Itinerary Included a trip oy the home of Clarke Powell. By this time the squad of children surrounding tt.e donkey 'jad become so large as to in spire him to unburden himself of some bottled up harmony. Powell heard tha sweet tones and, always with an eyo to business, chortled with glee. "It's a new auto hqrn," chirped Powell to his wife.

"Did you ever see such torrlblo table manners?" one of tho girls asked, but Miss Turner's "ss-ss-hh" warned them, and the dinner proceeded. When Burdln essayed to lift n chcrso ball on his knife tho whilo his hand shook with nervousness, Miss Ilynti dropped her fork on her plate with a clatter and Miss Turner temporarily van ished, but F. J. Taggart, rising to the occasion, glared awfully at the offender and remurked that "them waB some cheese bHlls." This was the third annual dinner of Its kind, but none of the others wr In this class.
