THE OMAHA DAILY KEEt TUESDAY, J AN U A II Y 1003.
OMAHA IS SHORT ON COAL
Dcftlen Unbl to Eupply the Demands' of
NO MORE FUEL TOft SCHOOLS THIS WEEK
Contract Inst Company Sotltles nr4
f Kdnenllon that It Will Be Im.
poaainle to Dellrer C oat
for th rrrnrnt.
Testerday found the fuel situation In
Omaha In n morn serious condition than It
has eTr been. Tho cold weather of last
week Increased the eon aajjjitlon f " kind"
of coal, and especially wag the stock of
ateani coal drawn upon for the use of the
large office buildings and factories. A',
every yard there Is a grat shortage of coal,
and It la estimated by conservative dealers
that there are not a dozen cars of steam
coal In all of the yards of the city.
George P. Cronk of the Havens Coal com
pany, the contractor for supplying the
schools with fuel, said the company ha 1
notified the school board that it would be
Impossible to supply coal for the schools
this week, as expected Consignments had
not arrived. At the office of the secretary
of the board It was said that no notice had
been received from the Havens company nt
coon, but It was not unexpected, as for some
time the contractor had been dellverlnK but
amali amounts. At the Hign school the de
livery has been from day to day and that
building Is probably In worse shape than
any othur. Many of the office buildings
which could not secure steam coal have
been using lump coal and any othar form of
fuel which could be found.
The manager of one of the coal yards said
that he bad but a small quantity of one
variety of coal and that bis drivers would
quit work at noon, as all orders were filled
as far as possible. Inquiry at the other
yards elicited similar conditions. With the
exception of one house every dealer has
more orders for coal than can bo filled, and
this bouse cannot supply the demand much
longer unless additional consignments ar
rive. asnenston of Ilnalneas.
A number of business concerns were
forced to suspend operation temporarily yes
terday morning, a It was Imponsible to
warm the rooms so that men could work.
By great effort the majority secured 8L.aU
quantities of fuel and resumed operations
In the afternoon, but they were Informed
that the coal delivered yesterday must be
the last until more coal arrives In the city.
The railroads, it is said, are doing all
they can to relieve the stringency. Many
companies have refused business In order
to use their cars for coal and others are
giving coal trains tho right of way over
everything but passenger trains. Despite
all of this, deliveries are a week or more
behind and dealers find It difficult to locate
shipments. One ense Is reported where a
dealer, after waiting for several days for
coal from the west, received notice that the
shipment had been sent to Chicago, where
It bad been delivered to dealers. With such
conditions the miner and the wholesale
dealer can do nothing, as they must keep
on good terms with tho railroads or go out
It Is reported that about fifty cars are
overdue here now, but no dealer will base
the acceptance of an order upon the
probability of the arrival of this coal.
M. Levy, Chairman of tho committee of
the Board of Education having in charge
the securing of fuel, said that arrangements
had been made whereby the schools are
assured of coal sufficient to run two weeks
and by that time it Is expected the most
erious part of the shortage will be passed,
o it la believed the schools will not be
forced to close by leaeon of the failure of
the contractor to supply fuel.
This is easier said than done, yet It may
be of some help to consider the matter. If
the cause is something over which you have
UV LUUIIUI II IV UUVIUUB IUAI Worrying Will
not help the matter in the least. On the
other band, If within your control you havo
only to act. When you have a cold and
fear an attack of pneumonia, buy a bottle
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and use it
Judiciously and all cause for worry as to
tho outcome will quickly disappear. Thero
is no danger of pneumonia when it is used.

printed in the form of a four-page folder
for general circulation in the city and Btaie.
The first lot was taken to Lincoln last

committee, who went to the capital In the
interest of the bill to repeal the objection
able section of the city charter.
The first page of the folder says:
Tne will he reduced If the clause In
section m of the charter Is repealed. It
reads: "Provided, that the tax commis
sioner shall take the valuation and assess

limits from the returns made by the State

Hardly Worth the Effort
to Secure It.
It has been rumored about the court
house the last few days that Sheriff Power
will seek to have two of his deputies
dropped from the force for the sake of
economy, said to be made necessary by the
fact that the expenses are greatly exceeding
the fees. Yewteiday morning the sheriff waa
found in the commissioners' room and
when pressed for a statement conceded
that "something will have to be done."
For some years the sheriff's has been a
fee office, which means that while the
Board of County Commissioners specifies
the numerical strength of the force and
the salaries to be paid, the office Is aup
posed to earn sufficient fees to meet all
such expenses and the salary of the sheriff.
Exclusive of the jail staff, tha sheriff's
force now includes Chief Deputy William
Weber. Clerk William Cunningham and
Field Deputies James Roach, Joseph Sherry
William Neve and Adam Sloup. Weber
draws $100 per month, Cunningham $S5 and
the others $75 each. The sheriff's salary
Is $2,500 per year. Thus there la a monthly
salary total of almost $700.
"nark In the days of McDonald," said
Sheriff Tower yesterdsy, "it wasn't hard
to make the fees go away over this amount.
but conditions are different now. The
tnkruptcy law almost entirely does away
with any Income from that source, whereas
such income used to be quite large. Fees
for services in foreclosure used also to be
a big Item, but nowadays the county Is so
prosperous that they amount to practically
nothing at all.
No Profit From Foreclosures.
"Foreclosurea not only are few, but to
show how profitless for our office they can
be, I may mention that tho recent sale of
the McCague building for nearly $200,000
benefited the sheriff's office to the extent of
just $5. Still another prop knocked from
under us Is that of the income for services
in petit larceny cases. The council grabbed
that from the county by passing an ordi
nance making petty crimes misdemeanors
punishable by sentence to the city Jail in
stead of the county Jail.
"As a result of these things It Is true
that the total of the fees during my service
has run $4,500 behind the total of the ex
pense account supposed to be met by the
fees, and something must be done. Unless
the county will take action prompted by
the circumstances, the lose Is mine individ
ually and leaves my office a source of but
little Income for me."
Asked why he has within one of as many
deputies as McDonald had, although the
work has bo greatly diminished. Sheriff
Power answered: "The sheriff's office la
entirely subject to the action and conveni
ence of the courts and pretty nearly every
body elce. In consequence, the work can
not be systematized and whereas one day
finds us idle, the next finds the full force
rushed to its fullest capacity."
Oil as Fuel.
Experiments have proven that oil Is just
as serviceable for fuel purposes as coal and
is considerable cheaper. There are many
people however, who will always prefer
coal. Just as there are many people who
take Hostetter'a Stomach Bitters In prefer
ence to any other remedy because they
have tried It and know that it cures head
ache, flatulency, lndtgeation, dyspepsia,
constipation and malaria, fever and ague.
A fair trial will also convince you of Its
value. Try it today.

TO HELP THE TELL CRAPHERS

WILL PR0T ST AGAINST Dl CRIMINATION
Brotherhood Men Assert that Elk
horn lload Has Been Antagonis
tic to Employes Jolnlna; the
Railway conductors, brakemen, engineers
and Bremen are to take up unanimously the
cause of their brethren, the railway oper
ators and dispatchers. Since the latter or
ganized along the Elkhorn system three
months ago as a district of the Order of
Railway Telegraphers tho operating depart
ment of the road, It is said, has shown hos
tility to tho order and has discriminated
pointedly againijt its members Id the serv
ice of the road. This treatment the feder
ated board will now Insist on being brought
to an end. ,
There are about ISO telegraphers on the
Elkhorn system, Bnd It Is said fully 99 per
cent of these went Into the order when the
movement was begun. The telegraphers as
sert that several men have been discharged
because of their connection with the order
and that others have been compelled to re
sign. This was accomplished, they say, by
taking away their regular help and piling
on them so much work that they simply
could not handle it.
Action to tome Soon,
"The telegraphers are very soro at tho
treatment," said one of the men, "and
their fellow members of the federated board
are right with them In a move to secure a (
righting of the wrongs. These other mem-
bers of the board are the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers, the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Firemen, the Brotherhood ef
Railway Trainmen and the Order of Railway
Conductors. The actlou will come before
February 1. being delayed till that time so
that the present conferences between Su
perintendent Hughes and the englnemen
and trainmen regarding a raise of wagea
and other matters may be out of the way.
All that the federated board will ask of
the railroad is that the discrimination he
discontinued, that the telegraphers' union
be recognized and that its members be
given reasonable treatment."
