The Ak-Sar-Ben excursion from the north
on the Minneapolis & Omaha road did not
bring as many . would-be knights as had
been hoped, principally because It was tr

production of that sterling comedy-drama

of the summer stock company. He was

possibly be. Mr. Ferris Is eminently suited

TRADE EXCURSION PAYS WELL
Opinion of Omaha Jobbers Who Went

ers had made Inquiries there was not a
single bid. W. J. Hayes at Son, bankers at
Cleveland, sent In a letter regarding the
bonds, but no bid was made. Mr. Hayes
wrote that he could not give par, but If the
rate of Interest was raised he might talk
business to the council. The bonds offered
are optional at the expiration of five' years
and were offered for 4V4 per cent
When the communication of Hayes was
read it was referred and the council went
on about Its business. During a break Mr,
Barnett, representing the State bank of
Toledo, asked permission to address the
council. When the request had been granted
Mr. Barnett said that some people might
think that bond buyers had gone Into
combine, but he firmly inserted that such
was not the case. And then he went on at
some length to tell why he happened to be
In the city at this time and how he had
forgotten to put In a bid. John Dale of
Omaha, another buyer, followed. Mr. Dale
scouted the Idea of a combine. No one had
asked Mr. Dale to defend his posltlbn, as he
had not bid, and the council laughed
heartily when he asserted that there was

Against the Haw Ordl-n-nce.
' When the Barbers' union met last night
the members laughed at a report In a
yellow afternoon Journal to the effect that
the Journeymen barbers of the city were
taking up the cudgels against the new
ordinance of the city relating to sanitary
"precautions In barber shops.
"So Xar as we are concerned." said one
of the officers of the union. "It makes
little difference to us. Those of our mem
bers who run shops of their own may be
affected to a certain extent, but they will
readily comply with all regulations within
the bounds of reason. Those who are em
ployed In shops run by others have'no
direct Interest in the matter and the boss
barbers will have to take care of their own
troubles. This does not mean that we will
not assist there by every means In our
power, but It does mean that the union.
as a union, has no interest in the matter
and that while we will co-operate with our
employers the first steps against any . dis
agreeable ordinance or regulation will have
to come to us from them."
In regard to the two shops which have
disregarded their contracts with the union
the matter was discussed Informally and
It wa4 decided to do nothing, as all mem

CHICAGO, July 13.-Numerous clashes
between the teamsters and the police are
anticipated tomorrow when the movement
of freight commences from the Kellogg
Bwltchboard and Snpply company to the
several freight depots.
The Kellogg company, whose 1,009 em

announced tonight that freight would h
sent through the picket lines commencing
at noon and all the extra police on the
West Bide are belns held In reserve for
the struggle that Is expected. The rail
roads will take all the freight sent then
nd the chief of police will furnish protec

Once on the platforms of their freight
warehouses, the railroads will see that the
freight is cared for, sending It to Its desti
nation, even if all their freight handlers
To try to adjust the difficulty a meeting
of the unions Involved and the management
ot the Kellogg company has been called for
Outwitted today by the Chicago Terminal
Transfer company, which succeeded In
shipping several carloads of the Kellogg
Switchboard and Supply company's freight
out of the city without Interference from
the freight handlers, President Curran ef
that organisation was aroused and tonight
prepared to enlist the Switchmen's union
In his efforts to plunge the railroads ot
Chicago In a general strike.
Though the threatened strike failed to
arrive on schedule time, the situation grew
more serious when Grand Master F.'ank
Hawley, national president of the Switch
men's union arrived from Buffalo and held
two hours' conference with President
Curran and some of the teamsters. The
switchmen have been asked to refuse to
handle the Terminal Transfer company's
cars or cars In any freight yards where
the Kellogg company may send freight In
the future. Mr. Hawley refused to say
whether the switchmen would enter the
conflict and Mr. Curran was equally noncommittal.

Safe From Summer Complaints
All mammas, and papas too for that matter, dread the heat of summer with
it's danger for the little folks, especially the babies. It is simply heart-breaking
to read year after year about the great death rate among children caused by
the summers heat. Yet it is easy to protect the infants against all
summer complaints, because we know that all these fearful perils have
their beginning in stomach and bowel troubles, and we have a perfect
family medicine .that will keep the delicate machinery in a child's
body clean, regular and in healthy working order in the hottest
weather CASCARETS Candy Cathartic. The plump, bouncing,
crowing baby shown here is a CASCARET baby. He feels that way
winter and summer. Nursing mammas take a CASCARET at bed
time, and it makes their mother's milk mildly purgative and keeps
the baby a rigkt. Older children like to take the fragrant, sweet
little candy tablet, and are safe from colic, gripes, diarrhoea, summer
rash, prickly heat and all the mean troubles that summer brings with it.
