trol of the I. W. W. for the past
week or two were con firmed today
J. A. Spere. trainmaster of the road
here. Spere admitted that the "Wob
blies" have been riding on the freight
trains at their pleasure and that the
road's force of special agents could
not cope with their numbers.
"We have not been able to do any
thing with them." he declared, "and
they have, in turn, refused to allow
any other men bound for the harvest
fields to ride unless they could show
a red card."
Spere declared, however, that the.
heavy traffic in Nebraska has ended)
and that the "Wobblies" are now upj
in North and South Dakota.
There are camps at Seward and
Fairmont, the trainmaster declared,
where twenty or thirty of the "Wob
blies" may be seen at any time.

Dozens of men climb down from
incominir freights at Omaha, making
no effort at concealment. They say
they are hunting work. .Many of them
openly defend the I. W. W. organiza
tion when it is discussed.
Al Hudson, of Bisee. Arizona, an
I. W. W. organizer, drew a jail sen
tence of ::o days in Omaha yester
day on the charge of vagrancy. Ho
admitted to an officer that the I. W.
W. is making a supreme effort to
net in all the members they can.
Organizers, he said, are working the

citizens of the community will stand
together as a man in combating them
and driving Ihetn from our midst, as
was done so successfully tit Aber
deen. South Dakota, last week.
From Wednesdays Pally.
The July community ale held to
day in this city was far and away
a great deal more successful than
that of June when the merchants
thought that they had secured ex
cellent returns and in many cases
the July bargain offerings will total
HiO per cent more business than at
t he opening sale.
j The visitors this morning in the
city embraced people from all over
Sthis section of the county as well as
la large number of cars from -Mills
j county. Iowa, and the visitors were
' feeling amply repaid for their journ
i cy in the exceptionally fine offers
; made by the merchants of the ;ity.
i From all over Cass county came
the seekers after the bargains and
they were all well pleased with what
had been placed on the sale at the
i special prices. While each stoic was
featuring some special line for the
i day there were hundreds of bargains
; of all kinds on at the stores and
I which caused the saving of many
.dollars to the careful shopper ami
brought pleasure alike to the mer
chant and tlse purchaser.
The lines of goods prepared for the
.special advertised bargains this
'month was larger than last month
i'.:id a number of the business houses
. which had doubled their previous
'orders were swamped early in the
day with the buyers and their stocks
; depleated before the noon hour.
Sptcial orders were sent to the whole
. sale houses to supply the lines of
special iurgains and pending tneir
arrivals the orders were taken down
to riipply at future deliveries.
There is no question but that the
.-ales day was in every way more
successful than that of last month
and it has had a most pleasing ef
iect on the merchants as well as the
having public to prepare for even
larger day's business when the Au
gust sale is held.

FARMER RELIEF BILL

Anti-Beer Measure Is Sidetracked

Wasington. July IS. Pleas for
immediate enactment of the Willis

deal" ears today in the senate, which,
by a vote of 4 7 to 17. decided to give
priority to the Norris farm export
Delay, and not defeat, of the beer
bill, it was said, would result, the
senate vote being regarded as ex

senate expects to pass the Shcppurd
"baby bill" for government aid to
maternity and infancy. Other meas
ures in immediate prospects are the
Sweet bill, to co-ordinate soldier re
