Superintendent N. C. Allen of the
Omaha Division of Burlington
Division Superintendent N. C. Al
len of the Burlington has issued a
letter to the various agents over the
Omaha division in regard to the de
mand for the movement, of coal in
the country. The letter is as fol
lows: "I wish to express my appreciation
to the agents of. the Omaha division
for their co-operation in the matter
of prompt handing of instructions
relative to releasing promptly and
moving coal loading equipment as
requested by the management in that
you have received through your ef
forts the co-operation of industries
located at your station. We have re
ceived various reports showing the
results accomplished, but none so
complete as the last report, which In
substance is about as follows:
"Individuals and industries in the
west that have ordered coal and yet
are unable to obtain delivery, have
naturally exhibited some concern
over the prospective coal supply sit
uation this winter. The reasons for
this concern must, however, be grad
ually dispelled when the facts regard
ing the production and movement of
coal are disclosed.
"This year up to September '2. the
railroads had moved 392.747.000 tons
of bituminous coal from the mines
as compared with a total of :41.27".
000 tons in the same period last
year, an increase of over 51.300.000
"Where is the coal going? Largely
to the Northwestern and Now Eng
land districts, because of the serious
shortage there and to which it must
be moved before navigation on the ;
Great Lakes is closed. i
"The next step will be to supply j
the central West and other sections.
to which winter conies later and is ;
less rigorous. j
"This heavy movement of coal has i
been made possible onlv bv the in-1
creased railroad operating efficiency,
because the available facilities have
not been increased could not be i::
the short time in which the railroads
have ben operated by their owners.
"The results which already have
been accomplished in increasing the
efficiency are indicative of what can
be done by private initiative and or
ganization in the face of very adverse
conditions. In the week ending Sep
tember 4. 947.74:'. cars of freight
were loaded; in the week ending Sep
tember 11th, in which was included
the Labor day holiday. S72.04:; cars:
in the week ending September IS.
"The accumulation of delayed cars
in April, following tliv outlaw strike
of yardmen, totaled 2S8.000 cars.
This was reduced to 47.KS9 cars for
the week ending September 24. which
is normal. In April the average in ilea
made daily by each freight car in
the country was less than 20 miles.
Tins average had been increased to
25.7 miles by July and the reports
which have been made since by var
ious railroads indicates that the goal
of 30 miles per car per day. set by
the railroad executives, will be
"The excess of cars ordered by
shippers throughout the United States
in the week ending September 1, over
the number supplied by the railroads,
was reported as 151,400. In the
week ending September 17. it was
9C.114. While transportation con
ditions are by no means satisfactory,
the facts show that the railroad
managers are making splendid pro
gress in improving them.
"From the figures shown above, it
indicates very clearly to me that we
have all contributed towards this
showing that has been made and each
I employee having to do with the
handling of the coal loading equip
ment, taking it tip with the con
signees to get them to realize the
; serious situation, has brought about
this improved condition, for which
I the agent, with his local dealers, de
, serves a great deal of credit for
j bringing about the prompt releasing

VES SIR! Success in our line
isn't something we can grab
we must build it. We aim to
prosper right here in this community
of people who drive motor cars. We
need their good-will. We don't try to
unload a new battery onto any man
who ccmes in here with a lame one.
4 ' No Sir ! We give our patrons exactly
the kind of service they would want
if they could know batteries inside
and out as we do. That's the way we
build up their good-will."
There's no need to assume that your
battery is worn out just because it has
begun to fail. It will take us just a
few minutes to open your
battery up. Then you
can see the insides for
yourself. You can see
how the plates look and
the separators. The plates
are the vital parts. If
they are sound enough to
warrant a repair, and it is
an economical investment
for you, we wall repair the
battery. We'll make it as energetic as
ever and insist on just one thing, and
that is to give you an adjustment guar
antee of 8 months more battery vigor.
But the day will finally come when
you will know that your battery has
lasted just as long as the best battery
skill can make it last. Then, and not
before, will we sell you a USL Battery
the one with the durable, Machine
USL Batteries come to us "Dry
Charged." That means that you get
a battery that is as new and fresh as
it was the day it left the factory. There
is no wear, no before-sales
deterioration, so you are
assured of the full battery

Not from the Great White Way but
from Searchlights of Malicious
People, is Complaint.
County Attorney A. G. Colo has
received a complaint from the vicin
ity of Murdock of the fact that the
residents near that place have been
annoyed by the habit of parries
throwing the rays of their search
lights into the windows of the homes
of a number of the residents of that
The habit complained of has beon
kpt up lor some time and the par
ties whose slumbers are disturbed
by the blinding rays of light re
asking' the intervention of the Jaw
to try and locate the parties carry
ing on this work.
It seems'to be the nightly avoca
tion of someone to drive along the
road in a car and stop and turn the
full force of their searchlights into
the windows where the peaceful resi
dents of Elmwood precinct are slum
bering and keeping this practice up
for hours at a time.
The parties making the complaint
are of the opinion that it is local
talent as no stranger would go to
this trouble to annoy the residents.
