mhI, the railroad would lie given a
reasonable time in which to dimon

to do no would he taken over.
May Kuih Legislation.
Senator Cummin expressed con
fidence tlut tribulation tor both pur
pons could le rushed through con
gress without delay. It wan indi
cated that eonnidrration of these
step would not operate to interfere
with proposed legislation now pend
iitK and denized to rurh profiteer
ing in coal. The W hite Home con
ference followed a survey of the
whole litiiiition at the regular cabi
net meeting and the termination
without result of the conference at
New York between railroad execu
tive and union official.
It was tated that the conference

Before tonight conference the
ground work had been laid through
administration overture for a fur

next week at ome point in Pennsyl

propositi would be made which it
was hoped would bring about an ad

rupted the icisiom at Philadelphia

While no detailed explanation

could operate anthracite mine in the

il that the first step would be to

marketed through the regular com
mrrcial channels, the government
taking- step to prevent possible
The bituminous situation did, not
enter into the discussion, the con
ferees agreeing that this industry
gradually was getting- back to nor
nial. The ability of the roads to
move coal from the mines, in the
view of officials, constitutes an im
portant e emcnt in tins connection,
however, and may prove a determin
ing factor as to the necessity for
federal operation of carriers.
While further developments in
both the e.oal and rail situations are
awaited, measures designed to mini
mize profiteering in both bituminous
and anthracite will be pressed in
congress. . Differences of opinion
have developed between the execu
tive and legislative branches as to
how far the government should go
in its effort to protect coal consumers

THE PURSUIT OP HAPPINESS.
That is t quaint, vet wise phrase
in our constitution, ''The puisuit of
happiness." No one can give it; we
must seek it for ourselves, lu my
search I am helped by a singular
thought: that, in essential thing,
all live are alike. We have the
world' story in our hands.
Thousands of year ago, and ever
ince, men and women had joy like
ours; they toiled in mutual aivvicr
a we do; they loved as we love, had
a many cares, sorrowed over tick
nrsa, death, tliaappoiiitinrnt, mm h
like our. The weak were crushed
and all the best of tl.riil found help

all, fur our hrlp in tune of need and
out ot the experience of long ecu
tunes we hate learned that to he
valiant, strong, happy is natural and
right; that all of our misery springs
out of our lack ot harmony with the
lixei lawn ot drill.
There is an education that adds to
our menial power, that will give
skill to willing lingers to unlink the
errets of dead and foreign races,
nut there is a better education in
moral power that help us to find
the sweetness of life and to refuse
the gall and bitterness; that show
u the best side of our neighbor
and friends; that shed a light on
('my so that we do not see how it

compensation when our best posses

his home last night.

usual empl'-'inent lit Omaha and
sent to Council Muffs) to help meet
the strike emergency in the car yards
and houses there.
It was shortly after 8 last night
that Bridges alighted from an Ames
avenue street car at Twenty-sixth
street and walking north to weridcth
avenue when a man stepped up from
behind and strusck him.
"He cried to me," Bridges told po
lice, ' that I -was 'scabbing on them
in Council Bluffs, and that 'the others
will get the same as you are get
"He was striking me while I lay
on the sidewalk and I reached for
the pistol I was carrying. He
wrested it from me and fired it at
me. Then he took $59 from my
pockets and ran." !
Bridges' wound is in the right
shoulder and is not considered seri
ous. He was picked up by neigh
bors who heard the shot and carried
to his home.

of Hilliard cursing him.
Hilliard's face was badly bruised
and his head cut.
Hilliard told police he was slugged
front behind ,as he was walking to
ward his home from work. He strug
gled to his feet, he said, and tried to
fend off the attack, but was linsuc

Wellington. Aug, 25.- (Special
Telegram.) California fruit growers
added to the dispute over the en
forcement of the Volstead act today
by asking the Interstate Commerce
commission for an allocation of
20,000 refrigerator cars for the ship
ment of "wine grapes" to. the eastern
Prohibition enforcement officers
were aghast when they heard the
news. This requested allocation is in
addition to the refrigerator cars
asken tor 10 transport regular iruiis,
including table grapes.
Demand Exceeds Supply.
Wne grape growers are said to be
receiving rentals of $600 an acre for
their vineyards and the demand for
wine grapes exceeds the supply. The
Interstate Commerce commission is
unable to furnish the cars and will
endeavor to transport the grapes in
ventilated freight cars.
The shortage of refrigerator cars
is one of the outstanding features of
the car service situation. Eighteen
thousand of them have been built
since the war, hut the increased pro
duction of fruit and vegetables has
kept ahead of the car supply.
- Caused by Dry Law.
The extra demand for cars for the
transportation of wine grapes has
disturbed the calculations of the
commission. The industry has
grown up within the past two years,
coincident with the enactment of the
