The Omaha Trade Exhibit of No
The great catalogue houses of Chi
cago and other eastern citiea are
noted for paying btarvation wages.
They hire the very cheapest class of
labor that can be obtained, and keep
wages nt the lowest possible level.
This shows the disposition of these
against concerns to get and keep
every dollar possible.
The average American citizen be
lieves in mkmg money and spending
in the way of a snendthrift, bnt in the
way money bhould bo spent. One of
the cardinal principles of the fair
business man in to pay good wages to
his epipolos, so that they, too, may
have some of the good things of life
as they go along, but this is not the
policy of the catalogue houses.
.Anv one who cares to do so mav
stand at the door of one of the cata
logue concerns at six o'clock in the
evening, when the employes are
swarmiug out, like bees of a hive,
see for himself the halfstarved. over
worked girls and yoong men who
emerged after the arduous day's labor,
Working in feme of the large mail
order houses is great deal like livine
in the penitentiary; the employe is
hedged about by a set of rules that, ate
more stringent even than those which
govern the inmates of our peniteniar
ies The bofs must be consulted if
the employe leaves his station for a
single instant, and such a thing as a
day off or vacation is almost unknown.
Many persons will say: "Well, why
do people work in such places"? The
reasons not far to sjek; they must
work there to eke out a miserable
existence. No one who has spent his
life in the country can imagine the
hardships that beset the majority of
the people in our large cities. Would
you like to have a boy or girl of yours
employed in such a place? Wouldn't
you rather see him or her working in
the clean, wholesome atmosphere of
the country store?
It should Le borne in mind that the
larger and stronger the catalogue con
cerns grow the more use they will
have for people who are forced,
against their will, to work for mere
existence. The people of the west
cannot realize the nardships (that
surround employes under the rule of
surrounding employes un der the rule
of the catalogue boss, and i f they did
would withdraw their partonage from
people who conduct such slave pens. -

Under this head Edgar Howard
iued a circular over the signature of
Herman Johannes, including a muti
lated affidavit from John Galley, de
claring tliaf'Ahbott issued an eleventh
hour attack on Sheriff Carrig and in
duced John Galley to sign a state
in 'lit on condition that it should not
h published till Galley should have
tim to look over his records."
The Ho ward-Johannes circular was
all true with the following exceptions
as proved by Mr. Galley's affidavit
The "Abbott circular" was abso
lutely true and contained no charges
again-t Sheriff Carrig which had not
stood undenied in the Journal for two
weeks. The statement in that circu
lar from John Galley was published
-implv as evidence to back the charge
which had stood for weeks and was
not denied by Sheriff Carrig until af
ter the last isue of the Journal lefore
election. It was Carrigs statement
that the JouruaI,s charge was an in
famous lie" which was the eleventh
hour attack and to meet which the
Abbott circular was issued.
The Journal said for two weeks
concerning Carrigs returns that "eith
er Sheriff Carrig had made a clerical
error in footing up his charges or that
some of the records were lost."
John Galley's affidavit proves the
truth of the Journal's statement and
more. It shows that the records were
not "lost," but "abstracted" by some
one and returned later.
And his affidavit does not den' the
only charge ever made against Carrig
by this paper, namely that he had col
lected illegal mileage." And for fear
of being misunderstood we reiterate
that charge and stand ready to prove
that he did not travel enough miles in
serving the notices to. collect legally
John Galley declares positively
that he did not ''exact a pledge from
Jlbbott to withold ublicaJion of his
statement till Monday" and he repeat
thai his statement in the Abbott circu
lar is absolutely true.
We appeal to the business men and
farmess of Platte count' to examine
carefully Mr. Galley's affidavit and to
act as charitably as possible toward
Howard and Johannes who have re
sorted to every means to injure the
credit and reputation of the editor of
this paper bolstering up their latest
charges on nothing stronger than "stol
en records" and "mutilated affidavits."
To the authors of that statement,
we simply say, Go to it. "Lay on
Macduff, and damned be he who
first cries, hold, enough."
Gal lev's affidavit follows:
CoLUMiius, Nebr., Nov. 9, 1905.
In view of an .apparent conflict
between a signed statement made
by me to Mr. Abbott on Sunday,
Nov. 5th. and an affidavit made by
me for the democratic central com
mittee on Nov. Gtb, I make the fol
lowing statement of facts:
On Oct. 23, Mr. Abbott and I
counted Sheriff Carrig's returns on
the assessment notices placed in his
hands by me. We found three
packages of original returns. I
counted the package of returns of
parties not found, and one package
of the city returns; and Mr. Abbott
counted the third large package. I
found 41 or 42 returns of parties not
found, and 79 city returns. Mr. Ab
bott found 143 in the large package.
Then Mr. Abbott counted over the
three packages a second time in my
presence. Since that time, I have
counted over the same three pack
ages, and they contained the num
ber as found by myself and Mr.
Abbott and as published in The
Journal on Oct. 25th and Nov. 1st.
On Sunday, Nov. 5tb, Mr. Abbott
and Mr. Stires called at my home,
and Mr. Abbott asked me for a
statement, verifying the count we
had made Oct. 23d and published in
The Journal. Mr. Abbott asked me
if I would be at my office early
Monday morning to check over the
returns again and see if any had
been added since we counted them,
saying that he would be glad to pub
lish the facts and that all he wanted
was testimony from me that his
statement as made in The Journal
Oct. 25th and Nov. 1st was correct
at the time, and was made in good
faith. I told Mr. Abbott that if the
weather were bad I could not go to
the office. I believed that he would
wait until that time; however, he
did not say that he would wait and
I did not ask him to wait.
The only misunderstanding under
which I labored was the belief that
Mr. Abbott wanted my statement

did not say so and I do not believe
that he intended to deceive me on
On Monday morning, I went to
the court house and counted over
the returns and I fonnd two more
packages than were there when Mr.
Abbott and I counted them on Oct.
23d; one containing fourteen and
the other twenty-six. The other
three packages contained the same
number as published In The Journal.
Wlio abstracted the two
packages of returns and bad
them on Oct 23d I am unable to

At the time the affidavit was pre

Hie Journal's statement was
correct at the time it was made,
and that I believed Mr. Abbott
was hottest in making it.
Every statement contained in that
affidavit which is not in .harmony
with the above statement of facta
which has been made by me delib
erately and voluntarily, I renounce
as false. '
I make this statement simply as a
matter of justice to myself and to
