Unions are up In Arms Against Ac
tion ol Shallenberger.
Establishment of Factory at Peni
tentiary Is Censured.
OMAHA, Nov. 20. The action of
Governor Shallenberger in signing the
penitentiary contract for the making of
shrits is causing the unions of this city
to take some action in the matter.
The Bee publishes an intcrxiew this
morning with a representative of the
unions who said:
"Governor Shallenberger did not
care for the truth when he signed the
contract with Max Cohen of Chicago
for establishing a shirt factory in the
penitentiary for the manufacture of
garments to be put on the market to
compete with the manufacturing es
tablishments in Omaha and the state.
The governor after granting a com
mittee representing the Central Labor
union of Omaha an audience, answered
them by writing a letter in which he
promised that he would not sign a con
tract for the shirt and overall factory.
Instead of that, he has done so, all of
which the members of the different la
bor unions of the entire state will not
soon forget if their expressions last
night are a criterion of their feeling.
"The governor was visited by a com
mittee three or four months ago and
responded by promising the laboring
men of Omaha that he would not sign
a contract enlarging the scope of con
vict labor in the state.'!
M. Fanger Comes Out Strong In
Talk with News Reporter.
Some people having made it their
business to put in circulation the as
sertion that the Fanger Department
Store was not putting on a genuine
closing out sale a Daily News reporter
called upon Mr. Fanger for a statement
and in reply to our question as to the
truth or falsity of the rumor that gen
"I have been in business in Plalts
mouth for many years and I challenge
any man to show an instance in my
business career when I have not lived
up to my every word whether given
in connection with business matters
or otherwise. I um pushing this sale
hard and will continue to do so until
inystock is sold out. But, mark you,
while I am pushing the sale hard, don't
for a solitary moment get the impres
sion that I am being pushed by cred
itors. I have the money to pay any
and all of my obligations and then
have no cause to worry and not only
that, but I have a credit which most
business men would call flattering.
Months ago I bought a heavy stock of
goods for the fall and winter trade and
these goods are arriving daily. 1
gave the order in good faith, expecting
to continue in buiness indefinitely,
but finding that my health was suffer
ing I am forced t o take a rest. I con
sidered that I was in duty bound to
abide by my orders to the wholesale
houses and have not cancelled an order.
These goods are arriving daily and are
being offered the people of Platts
moutli and Cass county at the same
cheap prices as the other goods in
stock. This sale was not set on a 150
day time limit. It will continue until
the stock has been sold out and will
not stop until we have disposed of
everyrhing. Every day brings to our
store a bigger crowd than the day be
fore and that clearly proves that we
are giving the people bigger bargains
than they ever heard of before. We
have slashed prices in such a minner
that no patron ever thinks of asking us
to reduce them even by a penny. Ict
the people come and see for proof that
M. Fanger always makes good on
every statement he makes.

at her home and gave her a complete
surprise. The young lady had been
spirited away to the home of one of

found the guests awaiting her. Music
whiled away the time until the birth
day feast was announced when the
merry party sat down to a six-course
dinner prepared by Mrs. Neilsen and
served by Miss I lelen Spies in her well
known charming manner. After din
ner games and music followed and in
other ways was the evening passed in
a delightful manner. Doris was made

Everybody gets stuck on Lincoln
town. There is hardly a base ball play
in the Western league but what would
fall over himself for a chance to play on
the Lincoln team. There is something
about that town that appeals to a fel
low. Notwithstanding that the season
closed two months ago, several of the

Many Employes In Customs House
ALL ALONG LINE
Gratters Connected With Sugar
Trust Frauds to be Punished.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2().-Ovcr
200 men have been effected so far by
the general cleanup which is going on
in the New York customs house. In a
short time little will be left of the gang
which were connected in any way
with the late sugar trust frauds.
In some cases the offices held by
these men have been discontinued,
thus making quite a saving in salaries.
Out; man who drew a salary of S.1,000 a
year has been discharged ami the office
discontinued. Some of those who were
dismissed without notice appealed to
the president but to no avail and so the
good work will go on unhampered by
any presidential interference.

AT MILFORD HOME
Turns Gilt of Dead Inmate ol Sol
diers' Home Over to State.
LINCOLN, Nov. 19. There is one
honest man for sure in the state of Ne
braska and that is Dave Howden, com
mandant of the soldiers' home at Mil
ford. , A few days ago an old soldier who
had made his home there for some
time was dying, and culling Col. How
den to him he presented him with $105
and asked him to accept it as a present
from him. The Colonel replied:
"No Sir, let the money go to tho
state. You have been furnished a
home here for the last ten years, and if
it belongs to anybody, it belongs to the
state. I will not accept it, no, not I."
The money was therefore turned over
to State Treasurer Brian and placed in
the maintenance fund of the home.
' It is understood that Col. Howden
has been criticised for not turning the
money over to the democratic state
campaign fund, but criticism of this
kind never harms an honest man like
Col. David Howden, late of Omaha,
Douglas county, Nebraska.
