DEMAND FOB LABOR
MANY REQUESTS REACH WASH
INGTON FOR WORKERS.
ARMY OF HARVESTERS NEEDED
Oklahoma is Said to Need Sixteen or
Eighteen Thousand and Kansas
Washington, IX C.—War orders
from Europe, th* prospective record
breaking crop of wheat now being
harvested, and heavy yields of other
grains are crating a new demand for
labor, according to indications at the
government employment office in the
department of labor.
Requests for workers are coming
from many manufacturers and farm
ers throughout the country and from
slate labor commissioners.
Oklahoma is said to need from 16,
000 to 18,000 harvest hands, and Kan
An Oregon association has applied
for 1,000 berry pickers. An arms and
ammunition plant in Connecticut has
asked for 300 men. Zinc and lead
mines in Missouri need 1.000 laborers.
A Maryland steel company has ap
plied for 100 hands. In West Virginia
2,000 coal mine employes are wanted.
So far the department has been
more successful in the cities than in
the country in placing men who want
work. Of the 3,495 for whom it se
cured places last month, 1,500 were
sent to Chicago alone, a railroad com
pany having applied for several thou
sand track workers. It is stated that
about 25 per cent of all applicants for
jobs during May were placed through
the department’s efforts.
Officers Quit to Make Munitions.
Washington.—Offers of large sal
aries to expert ordnance officers of
the army by private manufacturers of
war munitions for European bel
ligerents have created such a serious
problem in the War department that
Secretary Garrison called upon Attor
ney General Gregory for an opinion
as to whether an army officer has an
"inalienable right” to resign his com
mission in time of peace. Four resig
nations were accepted before the
gravity of the situation was realized,
but two others recently tendered are
being held up pending the attorney
general’s decision and the formula
tion of a general policy of the depart
ment. While high officials of the gov
ernment are reluctant to permit
wholesale resignations and are even
inclined to consider it unpatriotic for
officers to quit the services for more
money, the legal authorities seriously
doubt that any law can be found to
keep an officer in the army against
Y^le Crew Wins Regatta.
Xewr London, Conn.—For the first
time in many years Yale university
crews swept the river in the annual
dual regatta with Harvard. Notwith
standing delays due to rough water
and accidents the English coached
eights of the blue with characteristic
buildog determination, fought for
victory, defeating in turn the junior,
varsity and freshmen eights of the
crimson. Victory was exceedingly
sweet to the Elis, for the university
regatta records have to be searched
for many years to find a Yale triple
victory, although similar Harvard
successes are of more frequent and
recent occurrence. To add to the
joy of the blue the varsity eight es
tablished a new up-stream course
record in winning the big race.
To Have 18 More Corps.
Zurich. Switzerland.—According to
an authoritative military source,
Germany will be able to place eight
een more army corps in the field by
the end of July. These are composed I
chiefly of the second category of the
comprising men who have never per
formed military service, but who are
in training, and in land reserves
which have been resting in the inter
ior of Germany. It is calculated that
these new corps will about equal in
! number the exhausted troops return
ing from Galicia who will be granted
partial rest, doing service as inland

POOL BELIEVES MEN COULD
MAKE GOOD AUTO NUMBERS.
NtMBERS BOUGHT IN EAST NOW
Handicraft Plant, Recently Taken
Over by State, Will Not Furnish
Employment for All.
I. ncoln.—C. W. Pool, secretary of
state, has submitted to the board of
control a plan for the establishment
of a new industry at the penitentiary.
He is of the opinion that the state
touid make a big profit manufacturing
automobile numbers. At present the
numbers are purchased front an east
ern firm at SVi cents each. This year,
the first under the new registration
law, Mr. Pool will buy about 50,000
numbers. Next year about 70,000, ex
clusive of motorcycle numbers, will
be needed, inasmuch as this year
many secured numbers under the old
law before the new- went into effect.
The industry will not conflict with
any private enterprise within the
sta’ e. Moreover, it would not require
extensive machinery. About all that
would be needed would be machines
to stamp numbers on the steel plates.
Stamping and painting in two colors
would be about all there would be to
it. T'nttcr the new- law a new set of
numbers is required each year. The
board has the idea under considera
tion. The handicraft furniture plant
at the penitentiary- was recently tak
en over by the state, but that will
not furnish employment to all the pri
soners. The numbers can be manu
factured a year ahead and the raw
material purchased at a time when
market conditions are best.
Roads Denied Raise.
Four of the seven judges of the Ne
bniska supreme court united in a de
cision denying Nebraska railroads
| the writ of mandamus sought by
them to compel the state railway
commission to grant them an in
crease in passenger rates to
cents. The suit was brought for atl
the roads by the Missouri Pacific,
which was selected, inasmuch as its
traffic conditions made the best show
ing for the necessity of an increase.
Tlie case in the supreme court was
an appeal from the railway commis
; sion, which had turned down the
roads on the cry that, in view of the
j specific enactment of the 1907 legis
lature for a 2-cent fare, it had no
power to grant an increase.
Chief Justice Morrissey, Judges
Fawcett, Hamer and Rose sustain
this view, holding that only the leg
islature can change this enactment.
The minority. Judges Barnes. Let
ton and Sedgwick, in the dissent ng
opinion, hold the view that the 1907
2-cent fare law was only a temporary
order, and subject to change later at
the hands of the commission.
It is the first case in which the su
preme court has directly passed upon
! the ratemaking powers of the com
i mission. The limitation imposed is
ol far-reaching importance.
Idaho to Pay Its Bonds.
Nebraska is liable to have money
on its hands in considerable quanti
ties about July 1, according to State
Treasurer Hall. He has received no
tice that the state of Idaho, which
borrowed $703,500 on a twenty-year
bond with an option of paying all or
part at the expifation of ten years,
will exercise that option on July 1,
and will take up a portion of the
bonds amounting to $330,000. In addi
tion to this money about $100,000
i more will come in on interest on the
tends held by the state firm other
j states and places where investments
j lave been made.
Membership has tripled within the
last year in the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs
of Nebraska, which are conducted co
' operatively by the United States De
: partment of Agriculture and the Agri
I cultural Extension Service of the Col
lege of Agriculture. The enrollment
during the season of 1913 and 1914
was 2.200. This year it is over 6.000.
Excluding the Omaha and Lincoln
members, the dozen counties having
the largest enrollment in the order of
their rank are Seotts Bluff. Thurston,
Saunders. Morrill. Dakota. Fillmore.
Madison. Dawes, Burt. Gage. Kimball,
Morris Will Stick.
Dan Morris of Kearney will retain
his office as president of the state
normal board, to which he was elect
ed recently. Although he is the one
neutral member of the board, which
without him is evenly split into two
factions, his election was something
of an accident.
Fifty Per Cent Less Cholera.
As the simultaneous treatment for
hog cholera has been very largely
used in Nebraska during the past two
years, the Department of Animal Pa
thology at the University Farm thinks
it is fair to assume that a part of the
lessened cholera this year is due to
this method. The first six months of
1915 finds the state with 50 per cent
less cholera than a year ago. accord
ing to the department. This is taken
to disprove the contention that the
use of virus is spreading the disease.
Express Co. to Pay Its Tax.
The American Express Co. notified
Auditor Smith that it would pay its
occupation tax under the Smith law,
amounting to $9,866 for 1914. The
board of assessment had directed the
attorney general to bring suit to col
lect the tax.
Coal Contracts Awarded.
The Board of Control has awarded
coal contracts for supplying the dif
ferent state institutions, the prices
running from-’Vfe to 5 cents lower
than the contracts last year.
