The Omaha Trade Exhibit of No vember Hays: 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. - J. .1.

Abbott's Last Lie Exploded" 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 published below: 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 4 o 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 SSM.tio. 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 Official Abstract of OFFICE ASD CANDIDATES. FOB JUDGE OF THE 8UPBEVE COURT Charles B.

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 say, but I m positive that they were not among my,reeorde on Oct. 23d and that they must have been putjback prior to Nov. 6th by the party who took them. What I want to aay emphatically is "that on Nov. 6th there were enough retains to make Sheriff Carrig's charges oorreet aa.far av copies and returns are coaoerned. Wliether his cluirges for mile age, were correct or, not, I do not' know. And I want to say just as em phatically that Mr. Abbott's statement in The Journal was crrrect according to tlie re turns on file on Oct. 23d and tluit I did not mfik'0 my sign ed statement on Sunday, Nov. oth, on condition tJiat it sliould be held until Monday. The statement publislied over my signature in Mr. Abbotts circular is absolutely true, as applied to the Journal article of Oct 25th and Nov. 1st . The statements in the affidavit which I signed for the democratic central committee were drawn upon a typewriter by another person, and handed to me for approval. marked out many sentences and phrases with a lead pen cil, but 1 was hurried by the committee and I signed the mutilated copy without taking time to demand a corrected copy. At the time the affidavit was pre pared I told the committee that 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 Mr. Abbott, and am asking every paper of Platte county to publish it JOHN J. GALLEY.

"Melodrama said to be founded on facts filled with startling adventures and electrical thrills keeps alive the fury of applause at the Grand. "A Royal Slave" is what it is called and it tells the story of 4 man who into the hands of brigands; of a lovely heroine whose eyes ore blue and whose faith is like unto steel ; of an imper tinent soubrette who can teU a wolf in shsep's clothing intuitively; of hgh, low and medium comedy jacks and divers other persons necessary to feed the names of love and hate. The mission of the ficrformanco is to keep the heart pulsating overtime and it succeeds. The story is weU built, tho surprises are cleverly planned, and while there is much that is conventional and trite to the steady patron of melodrama, the ac tion is carried forward with increas ing interest. Considerable attention has been de voted to the scenery, with the result that the settings are above the aver age.
