YEW AUDITORIUM PRESIDENT
Trrd A. Nash Advanced from Vice
Presidency and Eseratlve Com
Fred A. Nash Is the new president of the
Omaha Auditorium company. He was ad
vanced from tha vice pranldcncy at a meet
ing of the director held at the Millard
hotel Thursday night, and at the same time
Thomas C. Byrne was elected vice presi
dent and an eecutVya rommlttee of (even
members was appointed.
Mr. Nah' accepted he presidency on
condition that the buslnoss of the company
Would be placed In the hands of an execu
tive committee and tha officers. He said
be had perfect faith In the board of direc
tors, but a body of twenty-five was too
large and the direct management of the
enterprise could be better attended to by
smaller and more compact organization.
President Nash has selected the follow
ing gentlemen to serve on the executive
committee: F. A. Sanborn, C. H. Pickens,
F. H. Davis, J. F. Carpenter, E. P. Feck.
Ward Burgess and J. L. Kennedy.
The deceased had been a member of the
department tor nearly ten years and was
held In high esteem. McOrcel's death was
due to an attack of typhoid fever. Mrs.
MtGreel had only recovered from the same
disease when her little child fell a victim
to It, being taken later to the hospital,
when Mr. McOreel contracted the fever.
The funeral will probably be held Moo-day.

Mayor Moores received a call yesterday

8peaklng of the present scarcity of Rock
Springs coal in this vicinity, Mr. Young
said that he waa at a loss to account for
It, as there has been more coal mined this
year by a half million tons than any previ
ous year. There has been, he says, in the
five years of his incumbency as mine in

DEVELOPMENT OF CULTURES
Health Commissioner Ralph la Per.
lectins Arrangements for Lab
Health Commissioner Ralph Is now per
fecting arrangements for laboratory devel
opment of cultures from supposed cases of
diphtheria and will probably have his plan
in operation before January 1. Dr. Ralph
' has been trying for a long time to aecure
a laboratory for the use of his department
and in his annual report to the mayor and
city council, which is now being prepared,
he will earnestly urge that such facilities
be afforded his department, but In the mean
time he has found a means whereby the
development of diphtheria cultures may be
secured at comparatively small expense to
the city. One of the medical colleges has
agreed to conduct the laboratory work, and
the physicians will be furnished with con
veniences tor the collection of the cultures
and will be encouraged by the department
in that work.
Dr. Ralph has selected a number of drug
tores in different parts of the city, and
as far as is possible covering tha entire
city, where physicians may upon applica
tion be furnished with the glass tubes and
other convenlencea required in gathering
cultures. These tubes will be furnished
at the expense of the city and when re.
turned to the health department by phy
sicians will be sent to the laboratory for
the development of the culturea.
BUCK'S CHRISTMAS CANTATA
"The Comlnar of the Ktnsr" ta Be Pre
sented at Flrat Methodist
The special feature of the Christmas
aeason musically will be the presentation
I for the first time In Omaha of Dudley
, Buck's Christmas cantata, or short ora
, torlo entitled "The Coming of the King."
! It will be given at the First Methodist
Episcopal church on Sunday evening at 7:30
j sharp. The work la said to be replete
I with musical Interest and full of interest
! log gems.
Some prominent names will be dropped
from the cay rolls of the Union Pacific Jan- I
uary 1, when the new pension system goes
Into effect. The exact number of names
has not been obtained, as the reports from
; the various quarters are coming In slowly,
' but it Is understood that the list will be
large and will include names of veteran
i employes from the various departments of
the company. It appears that the auditing
cparirnem win lose nivio uwu im,j an
other department at the general headquar
ters In Omaha. The names of Cook. Mills.
Lavldge and Reed, which have appeared on
the pay rolls of the Union Pacific for twenty
years or more will be dropped from General
Auditor Young's roll, and possibly one or
two more. John R. Manchester, general
claim agent, probably will be the most
prominent veteran around the headquarters
affected by this system.
Among the prominent officers of the Union
Pacific In other cities who, It Is said, will
come under the benefits of this magnani
mous dispensation are these: J. D. Ten
broeck, traveling passenger agent, Albany,
N. T.; R. Tenbroeck, general eastern agent,
Boston; George Ady, city passenger and
passenger agent, Kansas City; D. W. Hitch
cock, general agent passenger department,
San Francisco. This list Is not supposed to
be complete, but these are a few of the
more prominent In the traffic circle who, It
held, will be effected.
Primarily for Shop Employes.
The pension system. It is said, was de
signed primarily with reference to the men
employed in the company's shops, where
there were so many old-timers. The com
pany Is said to have devoted much time try
ing to evolve some successful method of
dispensing with these old men, where age
is more of a factor in Incapacitating men
than in any other department of the com
Arbitrary discharge of these old employes
has not proved the most feasible way out of
the difficulty. Such a departure Incurs the
displeasure of the trade unions to which the
discharged men belong, and the company at
once hazards Its peaceful relations with or
ganized labor by pursuing this course.
This test has been made. Less than a year
ago there was a thinning out process to
some extent and matters have not been en
tirely adjusted over that action yet. Just
about the time the pending strike began, or
a few days before, the company let out some
of its oldest shopmen and the strikers In
corporated this as one of their grievances
when the order came to quit work, so that
the company has decided that this Is not
a successful expedient. The pension system
Is expected to adequately meet the demand.
Men Are Not Enthusiastic.
The strikers' attitude toward the pension
system Is not one .of great enthusiasm, to
say the least. In fact, many of the men
do not display the Interest In It which
might naturally be expected. As one of
them put.it: "I never expect: to get any
thing from this pension system. The com
pany will take good care that none of Its
men- In the shops get old -enough to be
pensioned. They will be .leti-aait." - .
But from the officials' standpoint this Is
a pessimistic view. The pension system
was promulgated In the best faith and after
close observation of iti workings on other 1
roads, it has been organized, tor operation
on all the Harrlman lines and many clerl- .
cal employee are greatly enthused over It. '
Not many Omaha shopmen will be pen
sioned under this system right away. Of ,
the machinists these are named as cos- I
stbtlitles: Edward Edwards, Otto Gugler
Henry Jones; blacksmiths, John Bonnl
vler; boiler makers, John Clare, Pompy
Krause and U. Flannigan. There
are other candidates in other towns along
the road. Armstrong Is said to have more
than any other one shop.
The trainmen, aa well as the shopmen
and the other employes, are subject to this
system also. How many engineers, fire
men, conductors, brakesmen or switchmen
are 85 or 75 years of age and have been
In the service of the Union Pacific for
twenty years cannot now be stated. '
