MAYOR ACTS ROLE
OF PEACEMAKER
Dahlman Girei Insurgent Faction
Control of Property of Home
for Aged Colored People.
TAKES STAR FROM "SPECIAL"
Difference of opinion over th ex
penditure of rlrner in the ringing
fund threatens the solidarity of the
Negro Woman's Christian bbbocIa
tlon, which opened a home for aged
colored people at 3029 Plnkney
street last September. A delegation
pf fourteen colored women, headed
by Mrs. .1. II. 8mlth, called on Mayor
J. t,' Dahlman and compiainea
agalngt Hie faction headed by John
Grant Pegg, who holds an appointive
city position under the mayor.
Decision According- to l.etr.
Mayor Dahlman decided thai the In
surgent faction ohottld have contrnl of
the property and that the Pegg fncllon
should go Into court If thy cliilmnd any
rights. The mayor said he gave this deci
sion under the law which makes him
"chief txerutlve and conservator of the
peace," a function 'of his office which
l.a seldom exercises, he said.
With Mrs. Smith were Mr. Alfonso
Wilson, chairman of the executive, com
mittee; Mra. Florence Rlggs, aecre'tnry
of the association, and Mrs. Eva Walker,
treasurer, all of whom have affiliated
with the faction opposing the old regime,
f all, on Boiler.
John Grant I'egg ts a niemticr of the
advisory board of eleven members, three
of whom have resigned. He Is also chair
man of the house committee appointed by
the advisory fcoard and given power to
look after the property. When this dis
ruption became acute Mr. i'egg of Tues
day called on Acting Mayor Danl Butler
and prevailed upon the official to swear
John Hurman In aa a special officer to
rare for the home. When Officer Hur
man started hta duties member of the
Insurglng faction telephoned the police
station and complained against the pres
ence of this officer at the homo, adding
that he -scared the Inmates. Chairman
Pegg alleges the Inmates consist of one
matron and one elderly man. The mayor
ordered Hunnan's star taken from him.
William N. Johnson and Mr. Dr. Qoden
are tha othef members of the house com
mittee who are atandlng by Mr. Pegg.
Roth Taction claim possession of the
property.
Disagreement hiarta Troable.
The trouble started over a disagreement
a to whether certain money should bo
taken out of the sinking fund to pay cur
rent expenses. The sinking fund smounts
to 1112. Tho home was bought for tl.doo
on payments.
Having the president, secretary, treas
urer and chairman of the executive com
mittee of the association on their aide,
tha Insurgents expect to reorganise and
carry on the work of the. home, which
they believe will ba a successful Institu
tion in the course of time.

Head Off Thfe Graft
The lawmaker at 'Lincoln ahonld
be made to nnderitand that there ia
no excuse for reriyinf the jail feed
ing graft by the proposed bill gir
in; the sheriff 40 cents a day for
feeding each prisoner in hi ens
tody. For five years the famishing of
food to the prisoners was let by
contract at a cost to the taxpayers
of 19 centa a day on & two-meal
basis, equivalent to not to exceed 27
cents a day on a three-meal basis.
The present sheriff himself put in
a bid, in the name of a sister-in-law
to feed the prisoners for 19
cents a day, on which he had fig
ured himself a profit, yet now
wants to run the cost up on the tax
payers to 40 cents a day.
