f Accepted by the Board of Directors of The Associated
Retailers of Omaha," that was the way the Survey was
marked which brought out the following important facts re
garding: The Omaha Bee:
The buying power of the average, subscriber of The
Omaha Bee was greater than any other paper. The advertis
ing charge of The Omaha Sunday Bee "per 1,000 circula
tion" was lower than any other paper daily or Sunday; the
circulation indicated by the Survey for The Omaha Bee was
greater tban claimed by The Omaha Bee in city carrier, total
city, and grand total circulation.
These facts are of great importance to the advertiser
who desires to "follow through" and learn where the results
to bis advertising com from.
The "please let your competitors decide your advertis
ing plans for you" argument of the paper which talks con
stantly of advertising volume doesn't "go over" with tha
advertiser who initts on results. '
The Omaha Bee is enjoying a growing and an advertis

Chicago, June 17. Railroad execu

sporadic strikes may follow the
$135,000,000 wage cuts set for July
1 by the United States railroad labor
board, the prospects appear to be all
against an extended walkout of the
groups involved. A survey of condi
tions upon the western lines, just
completed, they say, indicates that
the men do not want a strike, and
that although they, may vote to place
authority for the calling of a walk

leaders, still their sentiment is against

The rail wage board majority, em
bracing the members of the public
and railroad groups, asserted today
that Darts of the dissenting opinion
were oreoared in the headquarters ot
the railway employes department of
the American Federation of Labor.
The majority document accuses the
labor members of placing their
opinion with "incendiary arguments."

The transportation act aimed to

Omaha Bee Leased Wire.
Cincinnati, . June 17. Bert M.
Jewell, president of the railroad de
partment of the American Federation
of Labor, today said that the three
recent wage cuts affecting approxi
mately 1.200,000 railway employes,
recently handed down by the Uuited
States railroad labor board was so
designed as to bring about a split in
the ranks of the railworkers.
The effect of this solit. accordins
to Mr. Jewell, is to place the rail
way employes in two classifications.
The first classification, including all
of the men who have received wage
cuts, leaves out all railway employes

Senator Norris Announces
Project Bid for by Ford

Washington, June f 17. (Special
Telegram.) There will be.no con
sideration of the Muscle Shoals proj
ect at this session of congress, ac
cording to a statement made by
Senator Norris of Nebraska today,
speaking as chairman of the agricul
tural committee, which has the mat
ter in charge. While he did not go
into details, Senator Norris indi
cated in a. few brief remarks that he
is doubtful of the wisdom of ac
cepting the Ford offer for Muscle
The subject was precipitated in
the senate today by Senator McKin
ley, Illinois, who read a letter from
James B Smith, president of the
Mississippi Valley association, which
had been broadcast, urging recipi
ents to bring pressure upon their
congressmen to act favorably on the
Muscle Shoals project. Senator Un
derwood. Alabama, in whose state
the project is situated, urged that
action be taken one way or the other
on the project and decried the charge
ct propaganda against Mr. bmith.
Senator Norris said that' he did
not wish to charge Mr. Smith with
propaganda; that this was-a free
country and that a man may do as
He said, however, that in claiming
the Ford project would be a great
benefit to the whole Mississippi val
ley, Mr. Smith did not know what
he is talking about.
1 he senator said it would be a local
improvement and that only. This
clearly indicates the senator does
not believe it will result in cheaper
fertilizers for the farmer. He said
that he did not wish to charge propa
ganda to Mr. Ford, but stated it as
a fact that 99 per cent of the propa
ganda that came to his attention was
in favor of the Ford project.
Senator Norris said he had his
own idea of. what the permanent
policy of the government should be
at Muscle Shoals, but said in view
of the mass of legislation before
congress and because of the ap
proaching elections it would be im
possible to get men to stay here.

Brown, his Nash car stolen at

to get away from the auto and the
small arsenal it contained.
As the officers approached. Brown
seized two automatic pistols from

shelter of a boulder near by. The
possemen opened fire and the fugi

and the rock. A bullet had taken

feeble efforts to use his guns, but
lacked the strength. He cursed al

through his body. Surgeons say
Brown, although in a critical condi

at Medicine Bow by Dr. R. K. Sell,
Brown consented to talk a little, but
he soon shut up like a clam and since
