t!: additional charge on the grounds
tlat the revenue derived from such
a 'l.p.rg? was small and no more
than justifiable for service rendered.
"Full yardage charges for similar
Kervi o have i)"cn in force at other
markets for some time," he said,
ami we delayed adding the charge
aa long as possible."
With Mr. Buckingham's testimony
the examiner, O. M. Dagger of the
Washington oJTi.t, called the general
hearing to order and facts and fig
ures relative to the volume of busi-
ness carried on at the Omaha market
during the past year were submitted.
Explaining the term "marketing
privileges," Mr. Buckingham went
into some detail, going to the days
in 18S4 when the Omaha market was
organized and tracing its growth up
to its present tremendous propor
tions. "It is almost impossible to
place a fixed value on 'marketing
privileges'," he declared, "for in the
thirty-eight years I have been en
gaged In this industry it has grown
step by step to its present high
point of efficiency. It i3 a privilege,"
he continued, "for any man, whether
he ships one animal or a trainload
of fifty cars, to know that when he
reaches tljis market a buyer will be
there and his stock will be cared for
The committee, composed of Judge
Hayard T. Hainer, O. M. Dagger,
John E. Ewing, and Miss W. N.
Daish. expressed thanks for their
cordial reception and treatment
while at the Exchange. They will
conduct a similar hearing beginning

ADOPTS SLIDING SCALE
' In making th adjustment of the
loss occasioned in straightening out
the affairs of the Livingston Loan &
Building association the directors
and olik-ers have arranged a sliding
scale of the losses that will be nec
essary to meet and which will divide
equally as possible the amount that
v.ill be made necessary to cover the
shortage. The shares maturing at
this time will be extended for a pe
riol that will cover their pro rato
of the loss and each year according
ly, in this way of placing the loss
the burden falls on the earnings of
the shares instead-of being a direct
ESRCssment on the stockholders and
while it will make a longer time for
the older shares to mature at the
regular rate of interest, all will re
ceive their fulf amount at the end
and the shares cashed in at their
iuil vale. Those who took out shares
this year in the new series or that
may hereafter secure stock in any
series to be issued will not be affect
ed by the scale for the losses as their
shares will be handled as has been
the custom and they receive their
