It cost W. C. Galloway, member of an
Omaha wholesale firm, an even $10 yester
day In the district court for expressing
himself too freely and contrary to parlia
mentary usage during the proceedings
against Henry O. W'ernlmont, the attorney
charged with withholding money collected
by him for h's clients, T. ft M. Wolfson.
Mr. Galloway had been subpoenaed aa a wit
ness against Werntmont and waa aeated in
the court room in the apace back of the
railing whllo Wernlmont waa on the stand
during the morning session. In examining
Wernlmont counsel asked him the ques
tion: "Did you have any converaatlon with Mr.
Galloway In which you stated that there
would be ample funda to pay all of Woolf
"No, air," replied Wernlmont.
The answer had barely come from the
witness' Hps when Mr. Galloway, half ris
ing In bla aeat, exclaimed "He's a liar!"
The vehemence with which the declara
tion was made startled the court and every
one In the room. Bailiff Peterson rapped
for order and Judge Wheeler, as soon aa he
had overcome hla surprise, demanded to
know the name of the person who had thus
Interrupted the proceedings. Having been
Informed he called Mr. Galloway before
"Mr. Galloway, you have until 1:30 o'clock
thla afternoon to show cauae why you should
not be deemed in contempt of court and
Mr. Galloway atarted to explain and
apologize for hla outbreak, saying that be
realised he had been hasty in making such
a statement and in such a manner, but the
court told him to reserve hla explanation
for later. When court convened In the
afternoon Mr. Galloway submitted a writ
ten statement, which evidently did not sat
isfy Judge Wheeler, aa he fined him $10,
which amount Galloway promptly paid to
the clerk of the court, and the Incident waa
closed. Later Mr. Galloway waa placed on
the witness stand and testified that he had
bad the converaatlon with Wernlmont and
that the latter had assured him In answer
to hla inquiries that there would be ample
funds to pay all of Wool f son's liabilities.
The hearing waa not concluded when
court adjourned for the day.

STATISTICS ON TEXTILES
Oensui Bulletin Shows Immense Progress in
this Line of Industry.
LEADS WORLD IN COTTON PRODUCTION
Home Manufacturer In All Lines ot
Textiles Crowd Oat Foreign latll
Only Little Over V Per
Cent la Imported.
WASHINGTON. June 27.-The Census
bureau today Issued a report on the com
bined textile Industry of the United States
for 1900. The branches Included In th
Industry follow: Cotton manufacturers. In
cluding cotton goods and cotton small
warea; wool manufacturers. Including wool
en goods, worsted goods, carpeta and rugs
other than rags, felt goods and wool hats;
silk manufacturers; hoelery and knit goods;
cordage and twine; linen goods; Jute goods,
and dying and finishing textiles.
The census shows a capital of $1,042,997.
677 Invested in the 4,312 establishments
representing the Industry. The value of the
producta la returned at $931,494,566; to pro
duce, which Involved an outlay of $209,022,
447 for wages; $63,122,915 for miscellaneous
expenses and $521,345,200 for materials
used, mllla, supplies, freight and fuel.
The value now represented for hoelery
and knit goods cannot be divided between
cotton and wool, but if it be added to the
reported home production the total value
of the textllea consumed in the United
Statea in 1900 la $895,587,681. and the per
centage imported Is only 9.18.
Lead the World In Cotton,
The report says the census tables seem
to Indicate that the United Statea In 1900
waa the leading country of the world In
the manufacture of cotton, but quotes other
authorltlea and adds:
"Although the amount consumed by the
countries of the European continent ex
ceeded that consumed In the United States,
the consumption in the latter country great
ly exceeded that of any one of the countriea
of France, Germany, Austria, Russia and
"It la, however, universally known that
Great Britain is far in the lead In cotton
manufactures. The fact ia brought out In
the special on the cotton industiy that an
lmmenae proportion of the spinning In the
United States Is coarse or medium yarns,
whereas the average spinning on the other
side of the Atlantic is much finer."
The report concludea:
"The audden springing of the aouthern
states into prominence in the cotton in
dustry is ahown strikingly by the total
increaae of capital from $20,413,000 In 1880
to $62,623,700 in 1890 and to $137,172,500 In
1900. Ten years ago and also In 1880 Geor
gia was easily the leader among the south
ern states, but it haa now been surpassed
by both South Carolina and North Carolina,
in each of which atatea tbe value of prod
ucts was not much lesa than in the states
of Maine and New Hampshire, where the
Industry haa been established for half a
century, and In the number of hands em
ployed both North and South Carolina sur
pass both 'of these New England statea."
